Today, I'm talking POLITICS (don't worry, it's not that type of conversation). Cannabis is STILL federally illegal, and people sit in jail for the same thing others are making millions from. As an MMJ patient & conscious cannabis consumer, it’s something I have to educate myself on and I hope you feel the same…so let's learn together!
Joints, blunts and bongs are great, but they all have one thing in common - combustion. You are literally lighting your cannabis on fire and the inhale you take can reach up to 900 degrees. This video explains why we should limit or avoid combustion always, but especially while Covid-19 is around. What's the alternative if you like to smoke? Watch this video to find out!
The world of CBD can be daunting. Why does it seem to be in everything and how do you know what is a quality product!? With little regulation, it's buyer beware, and be educated. The information below reviews where CBD comes from, why it is beneficial to our bodies, the different types, what to look for when shopping for good CBD, and a few companies and CBD products I love.
Munchies - some hate them, I love them. At times, Chron's can leave me with no appetite. A meal goes from delectable to daunting, & for someone who loves food, it's a terrible feeling. Yet, thanks to cannabis, gone are the days I have to suffer. A few hits, or an edible & *BOOM* 15 minutes to an hour later I'm actually enjoying lunch instead of having anxiety about it. Why though?
To be honest, I bought this strain because of the name, and its sweetness, in both taste and effect, lives up to the expectation. Vanilla Berry Pie (VBP) is an indica dominate hybrid. I purchased on 1/8th, or 3.5g for $42. VBP is a cross between Magnum Opus 11th Gen. Royal Kush x Cherry Pie Kush x Sunset Sherbert. As with all of One Plant's flower, VBP is organically grown.

If you consume marijuana (THC) regularly, you might notice it doesn't provide the same euphoric effect it used to. You are likely consuming more & more product to achieve the same effect or benefits. This isn't simply because you get used the euphoric feeling of THC. Instead, with regular consumption, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) actually downregulates & desensitizes the CB1 receptors in our brain (CB1 receptors bind with THC to create an effect).

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds, produced in the trichomes of the cannabis plant. What's amazing, is they are exclusive to cannabis and have not been detected in any other plant. They bond with our body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS), causing a therapeutic effect. With ECS receptors all over our body, benefits from cannabinoids are typically varied & widespread. There are more than 100 confirmed cannabinoids - not just THC & CBD. We also are starting to see specific cannabinoids be isolated for particular health benefits.

I was excited to see a Sativa dominant hybrid during my trip to One Plant. I've always reached for indicas, but lately, I find myself drawn to Sativas for a little extra boost. I purchased an 1/8th, or 3.5g, for $42. Ebony & Ivory is a strain created by Swamp Boy Seeds. It is a cross of The White and Nigerian (hence, the name). The buds of this organically grown flower are medium sized & covered in trichomes (that frosty goodness). Upon opening the jar, I was hit with an earthy, nutty aroma.
