Marijuana Gifts That Won’t Scare Dad on Father’s Day

Avatar

Published

on

Father’s Day is coming, and there’s never been a better time to get the old man high — or medicated, at the very least. Legal marijuana and hemp products are easy to find these days, and all of that access and information has made senior citizens one of the fastest-growing demographics among marijuana users.

But not all of our parents are ready to dive right in to blunts and dabs, and products such as edibles, infused lotions and hemp-based materials might be just the ticket to help get Dad on the cannabis train.

To speed up the process, here are five marijuana and hemp products to check out for Father’s Day:

THC Chip Dips

What’s more welcome at Dad’s household on Sunday than dip for all those chips? All three of Athelas’s chip dips (ranch, French onion and Southwestern, which doubles as taco seasoning) are available in Colorado dispensaries, and each carry 10 milligrams of THC, so you don’t need to worry about Dad going to the moon as long as he doesn’t eat the dish by himself. If ranch won’t get him to try weed, what will?

Cannabis Beer

What will convince your dad to give weed a try if even ranch fails? Beer, obviously. Although the alcohol is removed after brewing, Ceria Brewing‘s Belgian-white, IPA and lager are all infused with THC or a THC/CBD combination, designed for fast cannabis effects to go with craft-beer taste. California brewery Lagunitas has also entered the cannabis drink market, releasing hoppy seltzer waters infused with THC and CBD.

7 Amazing Things to Know About Cannabis for an Amazing Love Life

Avatar

Published

on

How often have you heard someone say that food tastes better when you’re high? The same could go on and on about many other things. The hemp is a herb that coaxes you to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life, quite literally! That being said, one of the newest rage among 420-community is the impact it has on your love life. Indeed, you might have heard about the far-reaching benefits of CBD in your daily life, including fitness, wellness, spirituality, etc. The newest benefit could be witnessed not just alone but with your partner too.

Cannabis in Hindu Tantra was used for enhancing intimacy with your partners. And now as several countries have opened up to the hemp, it has again found its way into your hearts by improving your relationship in the following ways:– 👇

  1. Helps You Share Everything With Your Partner, Even Munchies

    It is no surprise that CBD lowers your inhibitions, and therefore there are no holds barred between you and your partner. More importantly, CBD brings back the pangs – not just in the hearing but also in the stomach. Therefore, be it sharing your deepest emotions and desires or sharing a bowl of midnight munchies, weed has you covered! 

    It is already a no-brainer how sharing with your significant other can improve the connection you have. Weed simply puts the smoke aside and sparks the fire between you. So, the next time your heart feels heavy or your stomach a bit light, consider popping a few THC gummies with your partner. Remember sharing is caring! Improves Your Communication With Your Partner

  2. Improves  Your Communication With Your Partner

    CBD and Communication? Yes, CBD heightens your reception but lowers your agitation. Therefore, you and your partner communicate better and, more importantly, openly. The only thing that impairs communication between two people is stress. The more you bottle-up feelings, the more you are prone to an outburst. Weed helps you relax and take things slow. Talk it out with your partner and stop to take a deep breath only.

  3. Makes You very Sensitive To Your  Partner’s Feelings

    CBD broadens your horizons. It helps you think from the other person’s point of view. CBD’s consumers are more likely to take care of the smaller things that their partners like. For example, many cannabis couples indulge in baking and cooking meals before being baked themselves! Weed helps you to pause and reflect. Since no judgment and discourse are open two-way between you and your partner, you are more likely to understand and feel their perspective better.

  4. Boost Sexual Intimacy

    Data collected by a popular dating app indicated that CBD for energy has latent aphrodisiac properties that boost sexual intimacy between you and your partner. CBD’s consumers are more likely to get off and have a pleasurable orgasm than others. Most CBD products also heighten your sensitivity towards the touch.

    Research indicates that CBD consumers tend to have frequent coitus and better orgasms. Especially for women, it helps to peak faster and climax better. Satisfied couples tend to be happy couples.

  5. Makes Each Other’s  Company More Pleasurable

    CBD’s takers often break out into giggles and laughter. The smallest and most unlikely of places become funny anecdotes. You and your partner can enjoy the small joys in life. Weed helps you sit back and take notice of the little things they do for you. With a casual hug or just holding hands through a horror movie, everything becomes a tad bit more lovable. Isn’t it?

  6. Baked Partners Bicker Less

    The next time things get heated up, you should lighten the ambiance, literally! The next time you and your partner want to sit down for a “talk,” how about doing it over a shared joint instead? You can find any online weed dispensary to fulfill your need for the joint. Weed lowers inhibitions but restricts reactions to a mild nature. It helps to ensure a more fruitful discussion minus the loud decibel levels. 

    In a sober life, saying sorry may take a lot of effort, but under the right circumstances admitting fault and moving past it without judgment is achieved better. Weed may not be the outlet for your problems, but it can be the right emotional outlet to better discuss your problems. 

  7. Deepens Your Connection With Your Partner

    Partners who bong better, bond better! Humor aside, it is right for CBD power couples. CBD has a magical way of bringing back the spark with your partner with the carefree spontaneity that you relish. It helps you think about them and, very importantly, for them.

    Be it a casual stroll in the park with a deep conversation about ‘Hello Kitty’ or just the random staring into deep eyes while she does the talking. CBD influence helps you relish every moment that you spend with your better half. 

    It relieves you of the superficial fights and small issues and encourages you to notice the things you like about them. Deep, meaningful relations are not forged overnight. They are a result of long intimate, and powerful memories with strong emotions. CBD, therefore, helps you to recreate that magic and give everyone some serious couple goals!

👉 Final Thought

As cannabis culture is catching on, it is being accepted legally in the majority of the countries. A weed-friendly relationship tends to be more open and less prone to inhibitions. This paves the way for a stronger, healthier bond physically and emotionally. You also try it if you have not yet and spice up your bond with your partner!

Report unveils largest donors to pro-legalization campaigns ahead of November 3 elections

Avatar

Published

on

A new report from Leafly released this week revealed the largest contributors to cannabis legalization campaigns in the United States ahead of the November 3 elections. 

According to campaign finance records, initiatives fighting to bring legal weed to a number of states this year have seen a fair amount of funding, the bulk of which came from cannabis companies and entrepreneurs. Other donors include unions, reforms advocates, private individuals and dispensaries. 

On the other hand, those financing anti-legalization efforts appear to be cash-strapped in comparison to donors contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to support legal weed in Arizona, Montana, Mississippi, South Dakota and New Jersey, with significant contributions to the pro-psilocybin mushroom campaigns in Oregon and Washington D.C. as well.

Arizona

Leafly reports the legalization campaign in Arizona has raised nearly $3.5 million so far. Two new polls revealed the state appears to be likely to legalize cannabis this November, which means Arizonans will be able to legally purchase up to an ounce of weed soon.  

Cannabis companies were identified as the largest donors to Smart & Safe Arizona, the activists behind the initiative for legal pot in Arizona. These include Harvest, an Arizona-based medical marijuana company that has donated almost $1.5 million. Curaleaf and Cresco Labs have also donated several hundred thousand dollars to the campaign.  

Montana

Out of all the states that will vote on cannabis measures next month, Montana has raised the largest sum so far at over $7 million. Again, polls indicate the state is likely to legalize weed on November 3, when Montana residents will vote on a pair of measures to allow sales of marijuana to adults aged 21 and over. 

A PAC nonprofit organization from Washington D.C. dubbed The North Fund has been funneling millions into Montana’s legalization campaign. The money didn’t go unnoticed as anti-marijuana activists in Montana filed a complaint against the group recently, asking for The North Fund to disclose its donors. The North Fund donated $4,800,000 to New Approach Montana so far. 

New Jersey 

Another state which looks set to legalize marijuana on November 3 is New Jersey, where the top donor to the pro-legalization campaign has been The Scotts Company, a gardening and pest control company. Weedmaps donated $91,000 to the pro-legalization campaign, which enjoys support from New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. 

A legal weed market in New Jersey could shape up to be one of the most lucrative in the country as neighboring states with large populations such as New York and Pennsylvania haven’t legalized cannabis. 

South Dakota

South Dakota will be the first state to vote on legalizing both medical and recreational sales in the same election. The state’s November ballot will feature both initiatives, which seem to be popular in Montana. 

The campaigns have raised over $1 million in donations so far, with national legalization groups contributing the largest sums. A restaurant owner from Sioux Falls ranks third on the list of campaign contributions with a $25,000 donation to the efforts.

Mississippi

Voters in Mississippi are heading to the polls to weigh in on medical marijuana legalization this November as well. The group behind the campaign has amassed over $1 million in donations so far.

Joel Bomgar, who serves in the Mississippi House of Representatives, donated over half a million. The Republican politician and tech entrepreneur was a key sponsor of the effort to legalize cannabis for medicinal use in Mississippi. 

Oregon and Washington D.C. 

Along with voting in the presidential election, voters in Oregon could legalize the therapeutic use of psilocybin found in psychedelic mushrooms. If voters approve the measure, Oregon will become the first U.S. state to allow the legal use of psilocybin. 

The New Approach PAC donated over $2.5 million to the effort, while other donors include entrepreneurs and a psychedelic therapy company. 

In Washington D.C., where people will cast their ballots on decriminalizing so-called magic mushrooms, the New Approach PAC donated $585,500 to the Decriminalize Nature D.C. campaign.

Will Legal Synthetic Cannabinoids Take Over Cannabis Industry?

Avatar

Published

on

We live in a world of synthetics. Most of our clothing is no longer cotton, but a mix of plastics. Much of our food is made of chemicals that can barely be pronounced. And now cannabis, our favorite smokable medicine and recreational pastime, might be replaced soon with legal synthetic cannabinoids.

It’s a world of synthetics

My mother used to work with a guy that had a great hookup for getting Coach bags. For anyone unfamiliar with the brand, Coach produces high quality leather bags, that come with a nice high price tag. My mother was buying tons of them, passing them on as gifts, and using a different one herself every day. They weren’t real of course, although I don’t remember how she found this out. They were knock-offs. Products that looked almost exactly the same, that felt almost exactly the same, but were actually made of entirely different materials, and overall of lesser quality. My mother was very unhappy when she realized what was going on, and never spoke again to her workmate who had bamboozled her, but buying synthetic products is pretty standard, and a lot of the time, most people never know that what they have isn’t the real thing.

Aren’t synthetic cannabinoids already a big thing?

Yes! Massive! In fact, if you read around the internet, you might get a little confused. Every time you see words like ‘spice’ and ‘k2’ being spoken about in reference to cannabis, its referring to synthetic cannabinoids. So, what’s the difference between these synthetic cannabinoids, and the legal synthetic cannabinoids that biotech industries are rushing to create and put on the market? Good question. While large biotech firms have the money and ability to make different concoctions, they aren’t technically producing anything terribly far off from the illegal version that people are constantly being warned against with terror stories of a few people dead over years of time. In the article cited it should be noted that most of the deaths weren’t even attributed to the synthetic cannabis, but rather a rat poison contaminant. Of course, somehow, those stories are all forgotten, or pushed aside, when the synthetics being spoken about come from companies that can sell their products above board, and have them taxed by the government. Funny how that works, right? While I suppose one could make the argument that its regulated vs unregulated, and that one is more dangerous than the other, the lack of relevant deaths from the unregulated version (no matter how much the very few that occur are publicized, let’s remember what it really means to have an epidemic of overdoses), and the standard story of putting down the one that doesn’t make the government tax dollars, while promoting the one that does – and which brings billions to large biotech companies – isn’t an unfamiliar story at all. So no, synthetic cannabis is far from new. I was smoking Mr. Nice Guy in Tel Aviv 10 years ago, and word on the street back then is that it was all synthetics. Now, with a massive 180º, the very thing being warned against constantly, is now the new thing being pushed by large biotech corporations.

CBG, or cannabigerol, a cannabinoid that makes up only about 1% of a cannabis plant by the time of harvest, and which has been associated – much like CBD – with pain management, as an anti-inflammatory, with neurodegenerative diseases, and with glaucoma. In fact, Willow Biosciences, has partnered with manufacturer Albany Molecular Research to create a large scale production of the cannabinoid – which also like CBD, has not been associated with psychoactive effects, making it a good addition to the medical cannabis family.

Willow is a Canadian company out of Calgary, but it’s already got a lot of competition. US based Biomedican Inc., of Fremont, California, is giving Willow a run for its money, claiming to already have a CBG strain that’s ready for mass production. Two other companies,  Demetrix and Amyris, are also looking to get specifically into the CBG game. In what is to me an incredibly and profoundly misconstrued statement, Headset, which apparently tracks cannabis trends, made the statement that cannabinoids on the market today are currently plant-derived for the most part, particularly with products like vape pens, but that synthetic versions should be coming soon. Now, this thought would have a lot more meaning if we weren’t constantly being told to stay away from ‘spice’ and ‘k2’, which are black market synthetic cannabinoids. In fact, the majority of vape pens being sold in a place like California, which has the biggest legal cannabis market, are knock-offs, and that means synthetic cannabinoids!! Whoever made the statement at Headset, which was picked up by Inquirer, must have only been speaking of the legal market, and the thing about cannabis, is that if you’re only looking at the legal market, you’re missing so much of what goes on. So much so that we’re having a conversation about legal synthetic cannabinoids as if they just came out, when the majority of us vaping pens, or smoking ‘fake weed’, have been using them for years…and generally without incident.

What are they making synthetics of?

Pretty much anything that can be isolated from the cannabis plant and serves some understood value. CBN, CBG, THC-A, THC-V, Delta-8 THC… This is probably a good time to remind about Marinol. While this whole discussion goes on about synthetics, its easy to forget that along with all the black market synthetics that are warned against, there’s also Marinol. Marinol, also known as Dronabinol, is an entirely synthetic cannabis medication which has been around since 1986 and is produced by several pharmaceutical companies at this point. So, not even pharmaceutically a new idea, it is quite possible that pharmaceutical versions of cannabis may not have, as of yet, made the dent in the industry that they were intended to.

patented, at least not in their natural form. However, changed, or synthetic versions, can be. So, while the cannabis game has been hard for pharmaceutical companies to control – creating a non-plant version gives our biotech and pharmaceutical compatriots a way to create a substance that can be patented.

What to expect

The general expectation is that the biotech and pharmaceutical industries will do everything they can to co-op the medical marijuana and general legal cannabis industries. Whether it will work or not is a different story. Sometimes pharmaceutical companies don’t have the pull they wish. If they did, everyone would be using Marinol, and Sativex already, and that’s not the case. The problem with cannabis, when it comes to big pharma, is that cannabis isn’t a pharmaceutical drug unless its made to be one. If the people are never interested in these new medical advents, then the old rules remain, and people keep smoking the plant. If big pharma can produce a product at the right price point, that’s accessible enough, and gets the job done, it could be a very different story. In this particular instance it’s an interesting battle for the market, and its hard to say how it will go. In the case of cannabis, the thing to remember is that we don’t technically need all this, and the more production that goes into it, the higher the cost, and the more need to find synthetic answers.

The takeaway

It looks like the legal medicinal cannabis market, (and possibly recreational one), will soon be flooded with legal synthetic cannabinoids. What will this really mean? Well, that’s up to all of you. If you want your plant to be a plant, then smoke your plant and nature wins. If you’re cool with the synthetic version, that go out and use it. The ability of the synthetic market to do well has mainly to do with the ability of biotech companies and governments to convince their people that synthetics are a better answer.
