From cookies to cake pops, marijuana can be incorporated into anything tasty. Let's get into some various ways pot has put a creative twist on the everyday foods we love.
How CBD Oil Helped Heal My Acne
We have all been there... when you're online searching for hours and hours looking for something that might help your skin. Or when you're spending hundreds of dollars, trying countless products, and nothing seems to be working. I struggled with that for about 10 years of my life. Throughout high school, I had cystic acne. I tried anything and everything I could get my hands on and nothing seemed to work. I was tired of using harsh chemicals on my skin with no results. So I ventured down the "all-natural" path, hoping to find something that would help. And I did.

Weed vs. Wax
Once you have started smoking for a while, your tolerance for regular old marijuana starts to rise. Then you come across the wonders of concentrated cannabis, or wax dabs, that seems to bring you to a whole other stoner level you didn't even think was imaginable. Over the last few years, I have learned to see the differences in how wax smokes, makes you feel, and the different high it gives you than smoking on kush.

The Hypocrisy of UK Marijuana Laws
Ah, the UK. Great Britain. Good old Blighty. Home of tea obsessions, crumpets, queuing etiquette, Yorkshire puddings (savoury,) and Spotted Dick, (sweet dessert,) poor dental hygiene, plummy sounding vowels and Hollywood villains.
The Benefits of Hemp
So lately, the world—yes, the world—is all about legalizing weed, which I am totally OK with. The thing is...everyone is so hung up on the medical side of this, which, in itself, is good. What about all the benefits of hemp, though? These benefits are things we should also be looking into for an example, and I will delve deeper into some others, but an example would be creating a combustible fuel using hemp. What? Don't you think that's possible? I think some research should be done on your half, because this is completely possible.

Like a newly rendered version of the ancient "tea break," microdosing only recently began to sweep across the culture of marijuana consumption, delivering a newfound method of not only getting you higher than a space shuttle, but rendering yourself protected on both mental and physical fronts (for far longer than even your natural high). As all things marijuana, be careful before you attempt microdosing on your own. While I may be using evidences and various concepts found from prolonged research, it's still a tested concept that needs a little more professional insight by industry leaders before it's actually set into stone. Plus, cannabis illegality weighs heavily upon scientific data and progress in adapting consumption methods of marijuana.
