Cherry Fire’s flavor is similar to its aroma, but opens up on the finish with notes of pepper, fuel, and hashish. This strain may be useful for consumers who suffer from appetite loss, chronic pain, and stress

Homemade Kief-and-Nutmeg Eggnog

 

It’s always an exciting moment to open up the catcher on my grinder to see how much kief I’ve collected. While others pepper their joints with the kief, I like to eat it. It gracefully infuses into oils and fats so there’s no need to strain or use a cheesecloth. It’s potent and low-maintenance which makes me all sorts of happy.

The kief in the catcher smelled especially spicy and earthy from all the OG Kush I’ve been smoking lately. This specific terpene profile is perfect for a medicated eggnog with cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg. Continue reading “Homemade Kief-and-Nutmeg Eggnog”

11 CBD Tinctures Made for Your Pet

)

Most pet-parents would go to any length to help their furry friends, and many are beginning to consider medical cannabis as a means of wellness management and relief from pain. With specially-formulated CBD tinctures on the market made just for pets, you can treat your furry friends as you would yourself.

Like humans, animals have an endocannabinoid system, allowing them to receive the myriad benefits of cannabinoids such as CBD. Pets with conditions like arthritis, cancer, seizures, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammation, and poor appetite, among others, can benefit from a CBD tincture. It can even improve quality of life for senior animals. Continue reading “11 CBD Tinctures Made for Your Pet”

Cannabis and Epilepsy Treatment

Since medicinal cannabis has become a more commonplace alternative for a well-established list of ailments, patients are finding a place for it next to their Advil and Tums. But unlike many other chronic illnesses that can be managed with over-the-counter supplements, epilepsy requires a specific cocktail of chemicals not readily available at the local corner store.

This is why cannabis – specifically its chemical constituent CBD (cannabidiol) – has become so important for families struggling to treat their epileptic loved ones. Cannabis has demonstrated so much promise in the treatment of epilepsy that FDA-approved clinical trials are underway. But why is it that cannabis in particular is so effective at treating seizures, and why is it critical that clinical investigations continue? Continue reading “Cannabis and Epilepsy Treatment”

This Everyday Household Item Could Counteract Your Cannabis-Induced Paranoia

 

Anyone who’s ever consumed cannabis will tell you that overdoing it can potentially result in feelings of paranoia and anxiety, two effects that are almost universally regarded as unpleasant. Being uncomfortably high is enough to turn even the most seasoned cannabis consumer off the stuff for years, if not for life.

Well, my friends, you probably have a simple solution stocked in your kitchen that can subdue paranoia and help you breathe a sigh of relief back into a calm pool of stress-free euphoria.

We first heard about this little trick from iconic musician Neil Young. During an interview with Howard Stern, Stern confessed that he hasn’t touched cannabis in years because “it makes [him] paranoid.” Continue reading “This Everyday Household Item Could Counteract Your Cannabis-Induced Paranoia”

Using CBD to Achieve Balance and Wellness


If it feels like you’re trying to do too many things at once lately, you’re not alone. The average American worker gets just over 10 minutes of work done before getting distracted by something, whether it’s important or not. Multitasking has even infiltrated our downtime. More than 40% of Americans admit to browsing the internet while watching TV, and nearly half of us check our email at the movie theater (not cool, by the way).

Most of us know by now that juggling—or trying to juggle—all these responsibilities at once means that other priorities fall by the wayside. Too often, our efforts to live a healthy lifestyle get swallowed up in a sea of screens, notifications, reminders, and to-do lists. When we try and do too much, we can lose sight of living a balanced life—and that lack of balance makes it all too easy to knock us off track in ways big and small.
