    Smoking CBD Hemp Flower over CBD Oil

    Smoking CBD Hemp Flower over CBD Oil

    CBD oil has been the latest craze, as it gives all the health effects of cannabis while bypassing the undesired effects of THC. On the other hand, smoking high-CBD content hemp flower, commonly referred to as CBD flower, might be a much more efficient means of taking this cannabinoid.

    Cannabis Industry and Ancillary Economic Benefits in US

    Counterfeit Caution

    Counterfeit Caution

    People are being diagnosed with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) from using bootleg THC cartridges containing hydrogen cyanide, and I can’t help but wonder how we got to this point. The tests on legal vaping carts did not contain hydrogen cyanide, so we can’t blame this on vape nation. However, the tainted THC carts show us symptoms of a larger problem in America. Cannabis is considered a schedule one narcotic federally in our country. This means that we do not recognize it as having any healthcare applications and believe that it is highly addictive. Another Schedule I narcotic is PCP. Even methamphetamine is considered a Schedule II narcotic, which is legal to prescribe in the US under the name Desoxyn. As research has shown us, cannabis has a myriad of health benefits from anti-inflammatory and pain relief to seizure and PTSD, and the scheduling of medications in the US is extremely political. Because of the extreme anti-marijuana propaganda from the 1930s, cannabis was thrown into Schedule I, and being caught selling or using it can send you to jail and cause hefty fines.

    Freedom from PTSD

    Freedom from PTSD

    I've never had PTSD, but I've been with many a friend and family member who has, and still is, dealing with it. It can be crippling not only to the individual who has it, but also to the family and friends of that person as well. It's not something to take lightly, ever.

    Cannabis, My Family, and I

    Cannabis, My Family, and I

    I was born and raised in Texas, and I am a mother, wife, homeschooler, photographer, waitress, and cannabis advocate. I wasn't raised in the cannabis community, actually the opposite. I grew up in the 90s and I was taught as a child that drugs were bad, and pot wasn't just any drug. It was a gateway drug. I was taught that if I tried pot, it would lead me to using all of the other drugs like crystal meth, etc. The schools, the media, even my family taught me that.
