CBD Tincture Vs CBD Oil
CBD Oils and CBD Tinctures are frequently confused, but they are not the same thing.

CBD oils are often extracted using a procedure known as supercritical CO2, which preserves the plant's purity, sustainability, and bioavailability.
5 Tobacco-Free Alternative Wraps for the Cannabis Connoisseur
It's no secret that smokers have the ability to tap into innovative levels of creativity. We typically see this power put to use whenever the lonely stoner realizes they're out of wraps (or rillos, gars, blunts, etc. depending on where you're from). We've seen everything from burrowing holes into fruit, to taking bong rips out of a water bottle jug - that's a gravity bong for those of you that are new to the game. The majority of the toker population might be a little too high to do all of the extra work, so typically, you'll see them pack a bowl, roll up a joint (in a paper), or pearl a blunt in a fruit-flavored tobacco wrap. Today, these cigar alternatives are bit more of a necessity as the government has ramped up it's fight against tobacco. In 2020 the US House of Representatives passed the Protecting American Lungs and Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act, which would prohibit the production and distribution of flavored tobacco products. While many states haven't yet adopted similar legislation and still allow flavored tobacco products, the world's current pandemic state has caused quite a few issues with shipments. This has also affected the tobacco industry, causing the availability of flavored cigars to become very limited and sporadic.

Trust me.”
A Pipe Called Peace
Sweet clouds billow from my lips and for the first time in over a decade, I don’t judge myself for their creation. I inhale support, exhale that feeling like the whole world is sitting on my chest. My nervous system softens into equilibrium and I hear myself say the words “thank god” out loud. A beloved plant, an old friend invites me to breathe, laugh, surrender.

Refillable Pods: What Difference Do They Make in Your Vaping Experience
Each time a person decides to make the giant leap from smoking cigarettes to vaping, they have numerous concerns with respect to vaping devices and juices. Smoking cigarettes always comes pretty easy because one, cigarettes are available everywhere with no complications and two, they meet the needs of every smoker easily, which includes nicotine discharge, throat hits, dopamine release etc. But it all comes at a cost, where you must forgo your health, sleep, energy level, appetite, etc. Therefore, switching to vaping is always a good move, considering all the personal, social and environmental benefits it provides.

Make Your Health Goals Come True With CBD Tea
Have you ever tried CBD tea? CBD, which is known to boost health standards, is booming in the wellness industry, but not everyone believes that this cannabis-derived component is a safe regular health supplement.

Simply said, CBD Tea stimulates some critical receptors in our bodies, resulting in greater harmony between the mind and the body's stimulation.
