CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana or hemp. It’s one of the most popular wellness products at the moment that is taking the market by storm, having shown its’ capability to shown its’ ability to aid sleep, anxiety, depression, pain, and even seizures, without getting you high. While CBD can be consumed in the form of edibles, topicals and oils, inhaling CBD Vape Oil is another popular way to consume it.
What is CBD vape oil?
CBD vape oil is another term for CBD vape juice or CBD e-liquid. It does not contain oil, which is dangerous to inhale but contains vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol like all other vape juices. CBD vape oil can also be taken orally if you prefer or if your vaporizer runs out of battery.
Benefits of CBD vape oil
- Health Benefits
CBD has a wide range of health benefits. It helps produce a relaxing effect on the body and can help with insomnia, sleep apnea, anxiety, and depression. It also has anti-inflammatory effects and can help with joint pain and muscle soreness. Since CBD can help with pain, it can also be used as a natural alternative to over-the-counter pain relief medication. Several studies also demonstrate the wide range of neuroprotective properties CBD offers, and it has shown to help with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
- Fast Absorbing
Vaping CBD is the fastest method of delivery, and its therapeutic effects are experienced almost instantly. Unlike edibles or oils/tinctures, which are absorbed in the digestive system or topicals that are absorbed through the skin, CBD vape oil is inhaled and directly absorbed into the bloodstream. Vaping CBD also has the highest bioavailability compared to other methods, which is the amount of CBD absorbed into the body.
CBD vape oil, like all other vape juices, comes in a variety of different flavours to choose from, to make it as enjoyable as possible. It is also a perfect alternative if you don’t like the taste or consistency of oils or tinctures.
- Helps you Quit Smoking
CBD vape oil can help give that calming sensation you feel when you smoke without tobacco or nicotine’s health risks. A 2018 study showed that CBD caused cigarette smokers to reduce salience to cigarette cues, which could potentially be used to treat nicotine addiction.
- It’s a whole lot smoother than smoking cigarettes
Vaping CBD oil using a good quality vaporizer is a whole lot smoother than smoking a regular pack of cigarettes, and the variety of different flavours available makes it even better.
Vaping CBD oil is pretty convenient because vaporizers are small and portable and can easily fit in small purses or pockets.
Overall, there are several benefits of consuming CBD vape oil. The therapeutic benefits of CBD consumption, in general, have been proven by plenty of research papers and medical professionals. Although vaping CBD oil has only become popular over the past years and there isn’t much research on it, countless consumers vouch for its instant therapeutic effects.
Is it Safe to Mix Cannabis with Antibiotics?

Unsurprisingly, this is an increasingly popular Google search as more and more individuals turn to medical cannabis for their day-to-day form of therapy. However, very little reliable information is accessible on this topic. Generally speaking, it is recommended not to combine other drugs with an antibiotic prescription. Marijuana is a natural plant though, so doesn’t that mean it’s ok?
Yes, but it could be problematic. Using marijuana at the same time with antibiotics isn’t advisable. However, it might not be as dangerous as some would expect. With that said, while you should not take any of the information you find here as medical advice, this article should give a better idea of what to expect if you decide to use marijuana while taking medicine.
How Marijuana Interacts with Medication?
As you probably knew, cannabis has a reputation as a safe drug – at least in terms of overdose potential and toxicity. It is also vital to remember that everything your body ingests has either a chemical or a psychological response. As for instance, using cannabis while on antidepressants can increase any or all side effects. We’ve also learned that smoking marijuana can be associated with symptoms of bronchitis. But in terms of precise information on the use of antibiotics and marijuana, little research is available.
Possible Adverse Reactions When Mixing Cannabis and Antibiotics
Though there is a very low risk, there’s always a likelihood of unfavourable reactions when you mix medications. Why? Drugs can act upon organs, systems and functions within the body. When one medication activates a particular system, it can very easily influence how the second medication is metabolized. For instance, cannabis that’s also been shown to possess antibiotic potential is known to inhibit the cytochrome p450 enzymes produced in our liver.
These enzymes are accountable for the biosynthesis of certain macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin, troleandomycin, and miocamycin. Suppose cannabis use is inhibiting these enzymes. In that case, you are more susceptible to any side effects caused by the antibiotic – meaning that an erythromycin user may be more susceptible to the known side effects like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
If you observe any side effects following antibiotic use, consider reducing your cannabis usage by half until you have finalized your antibiotic therapy. In case of severe side effects, it is advisable to stop using marijuana entirely until the bacterial infection has been addressed.
When to Not to Use Antibiotics with Medical Cannabis
As we’ve previously mentioned, antibiotics can interact negatively with certain other medications and drugs. As a result, many of us are left wondering about the interaction between antibiotics and marijuana. So, can you smoke marijuana on antibiotics or not? If none of the side effects have made their appearance and your doctor even advised you to continue so, it means you can. However, if your doctor warns you against mixing medical cannabis with your current antibiotic, always follow their instructions. There are certain instances in which cannabis may actually worsen your problem. It may sound counterintuitive, but you want to avoid smoking weed or vaping it if you’re taking antibiotics to cure a lung or respiratory infection. As you know, the chemical and smoke can irritate the organs that prescription drugs are trying to repair.
Marijuana use does not appear to have adverse effects when consumed along with antibiotics. Of course, be sure you check in with your doctor before continuing medical cannabis use along with your antibiotic drugs.
Lastly, it never hurts to take your time, do your own research and consider all the facts. We repeat the fact that the information in this article is entirely informative and should not be taken as medical advice.
CBD Oil in the UK
- June 30, 2020
- Posted by: Admin
- Category: CBD
The legalisation of cannabis in many countries across the globe is opening up new opportunities. New medicinal micro-industries are popping up to make use of this once frowned upon herb. There are many medicinal extracts that cannabis brings to the table. One such extract is cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD.
What exactly is CBD?
There are over 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant, a staggering number for a single plant. CBD oil is the second most common compound after the famous THC. However, CBD (cannabidiol) is not psychoactive; if you expect to get a high off ingesting CBD, disappointment awaits you.
CBD’s lack of psychoactive effects is probably the reason why it has been readily accepted into society. With marijuana still illegal in the UK, CBD is extracted from industrial hemp. The hemp
in question has been specially cultivated to have high CBD content and very minimal THC levels.
The standard regulation stipulates that the CBD extract must contain less than 1mg of THC per finished product for it to be legal.
Does It Work?
Research on how CBD operates in the body is not yet sufficiently conclusive; it is still ongoing. But the little that can already be drawn from what is available suggests that CBD is not just a fad. The phytocannabinoids in the CBD regulate some aspects of the human body like pain, memory, appetite, and sleep, among others.
So far, there is still some strict regulation on the sale of CBD in the UK. Brands and vendors are only allowed to sell them as food supplements. No one is allowed to make any medicinal claim on high-street CBD related products.
There are only 2 medically-approved CBD drugs in the UK; Sativex and Epidiolex.
Uses of CBD
Like most cannabis-based medications, CBD is widely used to relieve pain in the body. It has also been found to affect analgesia, although this has not been approved yet, pending more research.
CBD has also been used to deal with depression, insomnia, appetite loss, arthritis, and anxiety. Cancer researchers have also linked it to the reduction of chemo-related side effects like vomiting and nausea. But this only works when the CBD is combined, in equal proportions, with THC.
Its positive effect on the skin has led to cosmetic companies using it in some lotions and moisturisers. It reduces acne and other skin-related issues.
When it comes to ingestion, CBD can be taken in food supplements, as oil drops, or it can be added directly to food. For purposes of being discreet, some people prefer taking it with their favourite snacks one of the more popular being CBD gummies such as ZenBears.
For a faster kick, sublingual administration is recommended. You simply place a few drops under the tongue, and it will be absorbed quickly into the blood system.
Legality in the UK
CBD is legal in the UK. But this is subject to the amount of THC in it. The law stipulates that THC levels have to be less then 1mg per finished product.
For a CBD product to be declared medicinal, it needs to gain the approval of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.
What to Be On the Lookout For
When shopping for CBD, there are things you need to keep in mind. You run the risk of buying knock offs that are widely being circulated from black markets. With the CBD market largely unregulated, chances of being sold adulterated supplements are high, and you could get yourself into a pinch.
The most important aspect when shopping for CBD is to only buy products accompanied by 3rd part lab-reports confirming the dosage of cannabinoids insides and that the product is free from contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides.
Check out CBDShopy a trusted UK CBD Oil retailer.
The Bottom Line
As calls for the legalisation of marijuana increase, government involvement will ultimately lead to more research. Considering how resourceful the hemp plant is, it is only a matter of time before the rollout begins.
Once the market opens up and expands, regulations will be put in place, safeguarding you from unscrupulous dealers.
Fastest Way to Get the Effects of CBD
- June 30, 2020

- Category: CBD
There are many scenarios when speed may be a factor when planning your use of CBD. For example, you might want to work out and not feel the effects until after you are done, or you might have an important meeting soon and want to make sure it will be calm before it starts. What are the fastest and slower methods of consuming CBD, and how do the other methods stack in terms of speed?
1 – Vaping
Let’s start with the obvious champion: vaping is the fastest popular method of getting the effects of CBD, but not the safest. When you vape, the CBD mist goes into your lungs and then gets sent straight into your bloodstream, creating an instant peak in your CBD levels.
As a result, you often feel the effects of the vape right away. If not, then the CBD will start being effective within three minutes. It will remain effective for anywhere between 1 and 3 hours, depending on a variety of factors.
That said, there are safety concerns associated with vaping in general, and you should look into those before you pick up the habit. On top of that, notice that vaping is the fastest “popular” method of feeling the effects. CBD injections and suppositories can both be just as fast, if not faster, but neither method is mainstream.
2 – Sublingual application
The second fastest method, and one of the safest, is to place CBD under your tongue. That allows the substance to be absorbed by the mucous membrane, which sends it straight into your bloodstream. It takes up to six minutes for the CBD to start taking effect.
This allows the oil to bypass your liver, meaning that a lot more CBD makes it into your bloodstream. This leads to much stronger results than eating or drinking the same amount of CBD. Sublingual application can be done using either CBD oil or a tincture. The effects last between 4 and 6 hours, depending on many factors.
3 – Edibles
You have probably seen CBD gummies before, but edibles come in many more shapes and sizes. You can find CBD chocolate, cookies, lollipops, jam, ice cream, and even CBD pizza in some places. Versatility is certainly one of the main benefits of edibles, especially if you don’t enjoy the taste of CBD oil.
As far as speed goes, edibles are one of the slowest options in this list. It can take upwards of an hour for an edible to start making effect after being consumed. On the plus side, the effect lasts much longer, and it’s not uncommon for edibles to leave you feeling calm for six hours or more.
4 – Topical application
This is technically the slowest method in this list. While topicals are immediately effective in causing pain relief to the area where they have been applied, it takes several hours for the CBD there to be absorbed and reach your bloodstream.
Usually, that does not matter, since topicals provide localized pain relief long before the CBD reaches your bloodstream. However, if you choose to go to sleep with the product still on your skin, you may very well find yourself feeling unusually calm in the morning.

Raphael Mechoulam: Pioneer Cannabis Researcher

- Category: Marijuana in the News
As far back as the 1800s,scientistsrealized that there arevaluable effects incannabis. Extensive research in the United States and England on cannabis in the 1930s came to a halt with the beginning of World War II and did not pick up again afterwards due to the various laws and regulations that classified the plant as a drug.Legal issuescontinued to inhibit serious study until half a century ago, when Prof. Raphael Mechoulam (b. 1930) of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem isolated and synthesized the main psychoactive compound in cannabis: THC.
Back then, accessing cannabis for research purposes was not necessarily simple. Prof. Mechoulam contacted a friend who worked for the police, who provided him with seized hashish (which also originates from marijuana) for Mechoulam’s medical research.
In the early 60s, Mechoulam and his research partners had full knowledge of the structure of CBD(cannabidiol), an important cannabis ingredient. In the next few years they managed to isolate THC, establish its structure and synthesize it.Further years of collaborative research demonstrated that THC is the main ingredient which triggers specific receptors in the brain in the similar way to chemicals in the human body. Together with the cell’s receptors, these compounds work to protect against many conditions as well as syndromes.
The important discoveries made by Prof. Mechoulam and his team not only changed Prof. Mechoulam’s life path, but also the lives of millions of patients around the world – the ability to isolate the active substance in cannabis formed the foundation for an entire industry basedsolely on a single plant and the variations within its’ strains. Thecannabis plant is now being studied at an unprecedented pace.
The long list of medical conditions which medical cannabis helps to alleviate is all thanks to the revolutionary discoveries made by Prof. Mechoulam and his team in the early 60s. Based on such revelations, programs such as the one established byIsraeli Ministry of Health are able to provide eligible patients with the necessary permits to legally purchase medical cannabis.
Signs of Prof. Mechoulam’s sensational discovery are evident to this day – Israel is seen as a major player in the field of medical cannabis and has been at the forefront of the study of the plant’s virtues. More clinical trials in cannabis are currently being conducted in this tiny countrythan in any other country across the globe. The conclusions of these studies have benefited the lives of countless patients around the world – from oncology patients, through children with autism, epilepsy, post-traumatic patients, to elderly people with Parkinson’s.
Now in his 80s and still very much active I his field of research, Prof. Mechoulam will give a keynote lecture on his current findings and outlook on the cannabinoid system and where we stand todayon September 9during CannX Tel Aviv, an annual conference series focusing to the most relevant developments, innovations and opportunities in this medical field.

Hangover CBD Shot

If you are looking to cure a hangover, have you thought about CBD shots? One of the brands that I have sampled in the CBD space is Thought Cloud, you can read a Thought Cloud review by following that link. In particular, today I’ll speak about their new CBD Hangover Shot, and let you know if it worked after a long night drinking on the town.
Do CBD Hangover Shots Work?
Let me provide you with a back story. It was a Friday night, and one of my co-workers suggested happy hour. We hit the bar immediately after work, and in my mind I only wanted to be there a couple hours. Basically long enough to have four or five drinks and call it a night. Well, the hours compounded into four hours, (thanks to a great extended happy hour) and from there, we ended up getting dinner. Red wine was flowing. If you’ve ever mixed beer with red wine, you know that the hangover can be quite painful. Unfortunately CBD pain relievers don’t really work in this situation, otherwise I’d be rubbing the cream all over my forehead any time a headache started to blossom.
Well, wouldn’t you know it, but the next morning when I woke up for my son’s soccer game (at 7 AM, of course) my head was absolutely POUNDING. I rushed to the refrigerator to find something cold to put on my head, knowing that anything I did would only provide short term relief. I started chugging water like it was my job, but that didn’t help much. Finally, I remembered that the care package provided by ThoughtCloud had indeed included a CBD hangover drink. I had been storing it for a few weeks, not really remembering that I had this magical shot, but today was my lucky day, as there was a potential cure waiting for me right there.
The best part, is this is only $14.99! Click Here to Order
I slugged the magical shot, somewhat skeptical thinking there was no way it would work. However, the 15 ML bottle full of vitamins didn’t let me down. Within 30 minutes I was headache-free, and if you read the page on their site that talks about this product, I credit it to it being able to restore your electrolyte levels thanks to Vitamin B. The CBD helps your mind’s clarity, meaning you won’t be confused and groggy for very long the day after getting blasted on tequila. (Or whatever your booze of choice may be.)
Of course, this hangover remedy with CBD is NOT psychoactive, meaning you won’t get high or anything from it.
No chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides were used in this product, and it’s legal in 50 states.
Each batch is lab tested for purity.
How to Use the CBD Hangover Cure
Simply shake the bottle, remove the cap, and drink half of the bottle. This will work on headaches and upset stomachs. Any product you do not use, just put back in the refrigeration and finish within two days of opening. For full disclosure, I wasn’t planning on drinking again any time soon after my episode, so I ended up slamming the whole bottle. But that’s just me, you should follow the directions that they provide.
What’s Inside the CBD Hangover Cure?
The flavoring is organic, and it’s made form plant extract. The full ingredient list is below. Lots of good stuff there that you’ll find in healthy smoothies and shots you’d see at juice spa / bar.
25mg of Nano CBD, Ginger Juice, Lemon Juice, Turmeric Juice, Milk Thistle Oil, Wheatgrass Powder, Chlorella Powder, White Willow Bark Powder, Vitamin C, Vitamin E Oil, Vitamin B Complex (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12), Glycerin, Gum Arabic (Acacia Powder)
Make Your Order Online and get it in 2-3 days! – – – > Order Here.
If anyone is a fan of organic raw juice, you know the power of ginger, lemon, turmeric, and wheatgrass. There is of course, milk thistle, which a lot of people know is great for your kidney and liver function, so that makes sense as well. The vitamins make obvious sense being included because well, the best way to be healthy is to not have a vitamin deficiency!
Medical Cannabis Prescriptions in Canada
- August 15, 2019

- Category: Marijuana in the News
As medical marijuana continues to blaze its path all throughout Canada and the rest of North America, demand for its products and accessories continue to grow. Recent waves of legalization have opened up new opportunities for patients who have long been suffering from various illnesses and disorders of all types. CBD hemp treatments have shown great promise and effectiveness in helping people with a broad range of issues.
Not only has this form of therapy become a popular agent for physical problems such as chronic pain, insomnia, and fibromyalgia, as well as the side effects from cancer treatments, it has also been effective in treating neurological conditions including Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. And that’s not all; psychological disorders such as Anorexia, ADHD, and bulimia, have been shown to respond well to medical cannabis prescriptions, as have even some emotional conditions like depression and anxiety.
The first step to beginning this course of therapy is to apply for and receive approval for a medical marijuana prescription. The process is not a difficult one, but it needs to be done correctly all the way from filling out the paperwork accurately and sending it to the proper agencies which handle the applications, to having the medical professional’s recommendation for this type of treatment for your condition.
Obtaining a Prescription
The first thing that is needed before you have your initial consultation regarding medicinal cannabis therapy and whether or not it is the right choice for you, is a copy of your medical file and treatment history. This can be acquired by a simple request to your current personal or family physician. Often times patients may be hesitant or nervous about asking for such a document for fear of having to answer a bunch of questions or justify their request. There is no need to feel this way.
These are your records concerning your body. You have a legal right to access them at any time without providing any reason or further information regarding why you need them. The worst case scenario is that your doctor might require a written, formal request for the purposes of record keeping. Other than that, you should face no further issues. While this is not necessary if your primary physician is the one you will be consulting with regard to the possibility of medical cannabis treatments, for people seeking other opinions these files will be necessary.
Working with Specialty Clinics and Doctors
It can be advantageous to partner up with health facilities that specialize in this form of therapy as their superior knowledge in the field, and access to larger varieties of specific strains can be much more helpful when deciding which particular medication would be best for your condition(s). For medical practitioners who offer CBD products as only one of many options, their lack of expertise can often times result in an inefficient treatment program.
Filling Your Prescription
As previously mentioned, this is another advantage of working with one of the specialized health and wellness centres whose doctors and staff focus solely on medical cannabis. In addition to the fact that many of them have years of experience studying various medical conditions and how different individual strains work to treat and manage each symptom, they also have access to Licensed Providers which offer a higher quality grade of medicines than are available in retail outlets and dispensaries.
In addition to the fact that these clinics take the guesswork out of which strands to purchase for the patient, they also continue to work with them all throughout the course of the treatment, monitoring their progress and making any changes or adjustments that may be necessary, such as trying different prescriptions or adjusting the dosage based on the individual’s evolving needs.
Illinois Becomes 11th State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana
- June 25, 2019

- Category: Legalization
Gov. J.B. Pritzker inked a bill that allows residents to buy and possess up to an ounce of cannabis and non-residents can have up to 15 grams. Illinois became the 11th state to approve legal marijuana in the U.S. when the bill was signed. This was promised in Pritzker’s campaign, and it’s also going to provide a statewide cannabis marketplace. Additionally, over 800,000 people who have a criminal record for buying or possessing 30 grams of weed or less will have their record entirely expunged.
Illinois Legalizes Recreational Marijuana Sales
If you are an adult 21 years of age or older, you can buy at approved dispensaries once they are established with proper licenses, which could start as soon as January 1, 2020. Until then, it will be a crime to possess marijuana.
I’m totally on board with the next part of the report I read on Fox, where it talked about how this campaign capitalized on the sentiment that law enforcement simply had better things to do other than round up pot smokers and that the state could benefit from the taxation just like it does with tobacco and alcohol.
This could generate between $800 million and $1 Billion yearly, and dispensary licensing alone could produce $170 million.
With ten other states already having done this, as well as the District of Columbia, since 2012, Illinois is the only one to have a statewide marketplace, which makes this deal unique.
It’s a shame that New York and New Jersey both failed this spring in their efforts to get legal marijuana, as well as the Pennsylvania attempt last winter.
I’ll keep my pulse on this news, as well as other states that are coming up on legalizing marijuana. Until then, keep following your local laws!

- Category: Marijuana Buying Guide
With marijuana becoming increasingly legal across the United States, more and more people have started smoking it, helping them to feel both the medical and recreational benefits of the plant. With many of these people being relatively new to using it, however, few might know what accessories they should have to feel the maximum number of benefits. While the majority of people will know to purchase rolling papers, filter tips, and a few of the other basics, there are still a variety of things that they may not know about.
Many of these smoking accessories having a considerable impact on how much you enjoy it, which can make them a necessity when smoking. This shouldn’t be something that affects you for long, as there are a few different things pot smokers should have regardless of whether they’re smoking a joint or using a bong. However, there are a few accessories that are more mandatory than others, so they’re products that you should buy when you first start smoking.
List of Marijuana Accessories You Should Know
You can buy all of these accessories and much more on this site: https://www.hemper.co/collections/smoking-accessories
A grinder should be one of the first things that you buy alongside your marijuana, as it’s a necessity for breaking up your weed. While this can often be done by hand, it can often be a sticky and somewhat messy experience, and you mightn’t be able to make the marijuana as fine as you might need for the likes of a bong or a pipe. The majority of us will want to make this as easy as possible while still making sure that the weed is well-broken up, which provides a better smoking experience.
This is why a grinder can be vital, especially considering how it saves a significant amount of time. When you’re buying one, you should also consider getting one that has a kief catcher, which means that it will save much of the weed from being wasted when you’re grinding it. While this might mean paying a little bit extra for the grinder, it can typically mean that you get a better experience when you’re smoking.
A bong might be one of the more obvious accessories, although the number of people that overlook this can be surprising. This can often be called a water pipe, as it includes water that helps to cool and filter the vapor when you’re smoking it, which can remove any toxins that might be in the marijuana, making it much healthier. There can be a variety of bongs to choose from, which range from the simple to relatively complex, with many manufacturers creating unique designs that can catch almost anybody’s interested. With a little bit of time and effort, you’ll be able to find a bong that suits your interest.
While many people might be interested in smoking the plant, some may not want to deal with the potential health ramifications of the smoke that’s emitted during the process. This is something that can be avoided with a vaporizer, which does what you might expect from the name; vaporizing the marijuana and allowing you to inhale it. The health benefits of this can be seen by the fact that it’s 95% carcinogenic-free, and it also increases the number of terpenoids that’s emitted.
These can act as an anti-inflammatory while reducing the lung irritation that many people might see when they’re smoking marijuana. The benefits of a vaporizer aren’t just seen when it comes to health, however, as it can also help bring out the taste of the weed, which can be a significant advantage for many marijuana connoisseurs.
When you first start smoking joints, it can often be difficult to properly roll them, which can mean that you may not be able to enjoy the weed properly. This is where a rolling machine comes into play, as it makes the process much easier because it automates almost all of the process. All you’ll need to do is to put the joint together, place it into the rolling machine, and then let it work its magic. While newcomers to the area look the gain the most out of this, any weed enthusiasts will be able to reap the rewards, as it takes the majority of effort out of the process.
This can also mean that it will take much less time to roll the joint, while also making sure that it’s as well put-together as possible. With that it mind, it means that you’ll have the best smoking experience possible with a minimal amount of effort.
The majority of people know what a joint and a bong are, although they might not realize that these aren’t the only ways that you can enjoy the weed, as we illustrated above with the vaporizer. However, you’ll also be able to make cigar-like blunts that can offer a much more satisfying experience when you’re smoking it, although you’ll need a blunt wrap to do so. In many cases, these will be made out of tobacco leaves, and you can often choose which kinds of wraps to use when you’re making it.
This means that you’ll be able to find different tastes and aromas, giving you somewhat more leeway when it comes to the overall experience. With that in mind, you’ll be able to experiment with a variety of different blunt wraps to figure out which ones you prefer. In most cases, this blunt wrap will be made out of a single tobacco leaf, although it can sometimes be made up of several of them.
A dugout is a box, typically made of wood, that’s broken up into two pieces, with one part holding a one-hitter pipe and the other holding the marijuana. In the majority of cases, the dugout is relatively small and can be carried around discreetly, which will let you hide the pipe and weed whenever you need to. This discreetness also applies to the smell of the cannabis before and after you smoke it, which can be a significant advantage if you don’t want it affecting your overall home or anywhere else that you smoke.
These can vary significantly in price, depending on how sophisticated the design is, as well as a few other factors. While a dugout is more commonly made out of wood, it’s become increasingly popular for it to be made from ceramic and stone, which can also be a factor in its price.
Naturally, you’ll also need to have the likes of an ashtray, rolling tray, and a few other smoking accessories to ensure that you don’t make a mess when you’re smoking. It’s also been noted that a few spare lighters are one of the major things pot smokers should have, as it means that you’re less likely to run out of them when you’re in the middle of a smoking session. You might also want a few high-quality cleaners and brushes, especially if you’re using a bong or a pipe, as keeping the both of these clean can be vital when it comes to enjoying the marijuana.
You should ensure that both of these are of a high-quality, as some of the lower quality ones might contain toxins or chemicals that you wouldn’t want to inhale in your next smoking session. Combined with each of the above, you’ll be able to have an enjoyable experience without having to worry about running out of anything. Naturally, there are quite a significant number of smoking accessories to chose from; by ensuring that you have most of the above, however, you’ll be able to make sure that you’re set for a great smoking experience.
Colorado Hits Billion Dollars in Cannabis Revenue
- June 13, 2019

- Category: Marijuana in the News
I remember a ski trip five years back to Colorado, and being able to legally get marijuana from dispensaries. It was my first experience with this rather “new” legal model to obtain marijuana, and it took some getting used to. Thanks to some time spent in Nevada, it was far from my last experience in dealing with legal recreational marijuana! Today it was reported that Colorado has officially crossed the one billion dollar mark in revenues, and the State continues to lead the way in being the best place for investment, innovation, and development in this growing sector.
Colorado Continues to Pave the Way in Marijuana Sector
Is it the large head start Colorado had on everyone else that allows them to be so far ahead of the game? I don’t think so. While Colorado does attract a great deal of tourism to it’s national parks, ski resorts, and lovely scenery, they just have solid people who know the industry of cannabis, as well as farming, coupled with good work ethics and strong morals. I believe this is a huge factor when you compare it to places like Florida, where it seems every sector out there is highlighted with people trying to cut corners, cheat the system, and get ahead to be the person who makes the most money in any way possible. That’s just me, having experience in both places, and it may sound like a slight, but it is what it is. It’s my observation. Watch or read the news, Florida is a place ripe with fraud, especially in pain clinics and other places in that regard.
The former Governor of Colorado, named John Hickenlooper, who happens to be a 2020 presidential candidate, once mentioned the state’s earnings from legal marijuana as “a drop in the bucket.”
Whoa. Just a billion dollar drop, like on the Grand Prize Game in the Bozo the Clown Show? Must be nice.
Current Governor Jared Polis was the one who detailed in a press release how the state has earned over one billion in revenues from legal marijuana sales, and he had this to say about the current state of Colorado marijuana sales:
“This industry is helping grow our economy by creating jobs and generating valuable revenue that is going towards preventing youth consumption, protecting public health and safety and investing in public school construction.”
With licensed cannabis retailers having over $6.56 billion worth of products since 2014, over $1.02 billion has been raised via taxes and fees for the state of Colorado.
Certainly, other states will follow their lead and realize what a cash cow this really is, not to mention marijuana is a serious help to people who need it for medicinal purposes.
It’s also worth mentioning that many of the CBD Oil companies we review get a lot of their organic hemp from Colorado-based farms. Colorado is certainly a place that is taking charge in this evolving space, and it doesn’t seem like anyone is close to getting on their level in terms of innovation and dedication to putting out quality products.
