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?
Why I Won't Give Up Vaping
In my younger years, I used to be a smoker. I started with two, then before I knew it I was buying ten, then twenty, then forty.
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. When people think of weed holidays, the first one that immediately comes to mind is most likely the celebration that takes place on April 20th. But there are actually tons of cannabis holidays that take place throughout the year!
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.

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.
