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.
5 Types of Stoners - the Documentary
National Geographic loves shoving the same shark and cat documentaries down the audience’s throats, which is perfectly reasonable when considering that we haven’t gotten a new animal from God ever since the great flood.
Tyler collapses onto his couch and gets comfortable after a long day at work. He reaches into his pocket and grabs his phone as a message appears on the screen. The message reads “be there in an hour -Trees.” Tyler reads the message and ignores it, opening up a new message to send to his friend Jay typing “gonna shower and jump on.” Tyler hops in the shower to wash away the long work week when Jay responds with a message that says “start your update now. 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.
Baker's Dozen: Cannabis Strains I Loved in 2021
I've written about some heavy things this year. About family drama and past trauma. But I have also enjoyed creating a few "Baker's Dozen" lists lately that have been a dose of fun to combat those heavier, serious themes! From songs off my Spotify Wrapped list, to podcasts, to YouTube channels, I've been enjoying spending my time on some more carefree posts for the end of the year! Naturally, I wanted to create one for cannabis strains I've enjoyed in 2021!

Psilocybin Mushrooms cured my depression
I want to clarify that I'm not giving medical advice or any advice for anybody. I can't confirm for sure what happened to me, and this entire tale is anecdotal. I attribute my "cure" to these mushrooms; however, I do not encourage anybody to try them outside of professional recommendations with supervision.
The High School Green-out that Changed My Course
January 12, 2009. The day of no return. The census was that if I smoked pot alone, I was addicted, so things only grew out of control. I was sharing it with everyone. Wasn't that one of the points of Marijuana? I wasn't keen on sharing my cigarettes.
The Glow-Up of Mary Jane:
Among the many things that remind me of how my mid-thirties have set-in is how much weed has changed in price and grade. What we once classified as either “indoor” or “outdoor” has been trumped by medicinal strains and anything less is basically dirt. With hybrids growing in popularity to treat various ailments, one can literally customize the potency of their herbal experience. Since this switch-over to what has become a more openly practiced pass-time, the standard of blazing a fat one can become an expensive recreation for those of us who still remember the good 'ole days.
Blueberry Muffins Cannabis Strain Review
I'm very skeptical of the strains that I adopt into my list of favorites. Most of them I forget shortly after trying. It's only rarely that I remember a strain because of how good I felt. When the stars align, and your anxiety melts away. You're giggly and relaxed but not asleep within the hour. That is what I found in Blueberry Muffins.
Top 5 THC Strains For Inflammation
Well 2020 was an interesting year to say the least. For years I’ve battled with intestinal inflammation as well as arthritis in my knee. Medication worked occasionally but the older I get the less I wanted to put medication in my body that could potentially make my organs crap out on me in the future. Luckily for me though medical marijuana was an option. At my local dispensary they had a plethora of strains available for inflammation. Each strain I smoked for the total of a month to compare.
