You Can't Spell Healthcare without THC
Mary-Jane is my favourite name. I'm not ashamed in saying I LOVE smoking cannabis, but not for recreational purposes. I live in England, so it is completely illegal. Nevertheless, as of 2018, the medical use of cannabis through the NHS was legalised. The smell of cannabis in England is not an uncommon one. 98% of cannabis in Britain is homegrown, and we now have more cannabis in our country than in The Netherlands. When they announced the changes and started selling CBD oil in shops, for people like me (disabled) this was hope that one day we wouldn't have to separate ourselves and feel bad for wanting to be out of pain just to go about our day.
Tips to Follow Before Buying a Cannabis Product
There is no denying that cannabis is the current buzz. You'll have a different cannabis experience if you buy a full pot bud with all of its terpenes and cannabinoids intact, a CBD isolate tincture, or recreational pain relieving balms and energy beverages. With so many products on the market, how do you know which one is right for you?

The Origins of 420, 710, and Other Weed Holidays
If you smoke weed, or even if you don’t, you’ve probably heard of the number 420 since it’s become synonymous with marijuana culture.

Grapefruit Sour Dream Strain Review
I have sacred rules I abide by when consuming the ganja. Some of them being I'm not too fond of bongs. I usually even avoid pipes. I trust my nose more than my eyes, and the most important rule of them all that I never break is:
CBD Tincture Vs CBD Oil
CBD Oils and CBD Tinctures are frequently confused, but they are not the same thing. Although these products are comparable and have many benefits, their compositions and manufacturing techniques differ. 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.

What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the active chemicals found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. While THC is the chemical that many are familiar with, cannabis is a very diverse plant. There are dozens of cannabinoids present in cannabis as well as hundreds of non-cannabinoid compounds. Many of these compounds have therapeutic potential.
