Boost or Balance: Fun with Flower

Did you know you can combine your flower to create powerful combinations?

Whether you want to boost the head or healing effects of THC, tone down the head high or create a balanced ratio that works exactly for you, combining your flowers in your vaporizer, bowl or water pipe is simple and effective way to get the ultimate desired results.

Here are  few ideas:

In the Pines is very close to a  1:1 ratio on its own with CBD of 9% and THC of 6%. While this may be perfect for many on its own, for others it’s not enough.

When you add equal parts ITP to a 20% THC flower you would boost the overall THC to 26%. By doing this, you would create a a 1:3 ratio (CBD to THC) product, which can deliver a very potent head effect with a nice overall body melt from the CBD.

Alternately, by adding In The Pines to a CBD rich strain such as our CBD Remedy, you can create a 2:1 ratio.

CBD Remedy is 11% CBD with very little THC. Alone, this strain is ideal for quick relief from stress, anxiety and pain without the head high. It can also be used to bring you down more quickly in the event that you did use too much THC.

By adding equal parts CBD to an existing 20% THC flower, you can easily create a 1:2 ratio (CBD to THC). Or take 2 parts CBD Remedy with 1 part of 20% THC strain, and you can create a 2:1 ratio.

The scenarios are endless. And if you don’t want to smoke it, you can chop it and brew it with your favorite prepacked tea or other loose teas, herbs and spices.

While supplies last, you can add In The Pines or CBD Remedy to any order for just $10 per gram

No matter which way you try it, we urge you to keep a log of what you combine and how it worked for you, so it will be easy to recreate when you want to do it again.

Be Elevated. In all you do.

A New Kind of RX-C Success: Cannabis and Pets

All vertebrates, from ascidians to humans, have an endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of receptors spread throughout the body. CB1 receptors are responsible for metabolizing THC and allowing the psychoactive effects of THC to be received. CB2 receptors are responsible for anti-inflammatory relief. They are found in immune cells and work to reduce inflammation.  In dogs, the CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain, but also appear in dogs’ salivary glands. Dogs possess a dense amount of CB1 receptors in their brain making them very sensitive to its intoxicating effects. While CB2 receptors are localized in canine skin, immune system, peripheral nervous system and some organs, such as the liver and kidneys.

Just like humans, proper dosing is important to ensure a pleasant experience. This can easily be achieved with a little patience and small, controlled amounts. We have been fortunate to have a retired veterinarian work with us to develop suggested dosing for pets.

In the last few years several of our members and staff have had amazing success:

Pika – Pit Bull mix, 13 years old – Internal cancerous polyp tumors began to inhibit Pika’s breathing and hip dysplasia made it difficult for her to move around. A 5-15mg dose of the CBD helped Pika’s breathing to ease and become more comfortable allowing her to get much needed rest, and it made it possible for her to move more freely. Pika lived happily and comfortably for 11 months longer than expected.

Bootsy –  Terrier mix,  5 years old – Severe anxiety caused by loud noises, mostly the bombings on Camp Pendelton and 4th of July. His owner sprayed  Care By Design 18:1 in his water (6 mg) and witnessed a marked improvement in his overall behavior.

Sammy – Weimareiner/Boxer mix, 10 years old – Cancer survivor of 4 years, underwent surgery to beat it. The muscles in the area where the surgery was performed twitched uncontrollably causing Sammy discomfort. She also used to experience tremors. Sammy is given 2 sprays of the Care by Design 8:1 tincture daily and she no longer experiences either complaint. If for some reason Sammy does not get her CBD, the twitching returns within a week.

Rusty – German Shepherd mix, 14 years old – Chronic pain and stiffness from arthritis throughout the body – Given 2mg of a Sensi Chew CBD Gold edible 2-3x daily, his ability to lay down and stand up improved noticeably. On particularly painful days a dose of 4mg would allow him to find a comfortable position to fall asleep and escape the pain for a few hours at a time.

Cotton – Malti Poo, 2 years old – Chronic digestive problems. Has many food allergies and even with a veterinarian prescribed diet, would throw up daily an hour after eating. Upon the first dose of Care By Design 18:1 (6 mg) Cotton’s vomiting ceased immediately. He now receives one spray in the morning and one in the evening and no longer has any digestive issues.

Whether it’s anxiety or chronic pain bothering your pet, CBD may help them get some rest and slow progress of their conditions. Give us a call today to ask about our newest pet specific product, HL CannaPetMedz Tincture.

Mexico Legalizes Medicinal Cannabis

The day after the United States categorized CBD as a dangerous narcotic with the same potential to harm as heroin, Mexico has legalized medical cannabis for all. When faced with a problem like violent nation-wide cartels, Mexico has finally decided to take cultivation and control of the plant away from criminals and back into the hands of the government and the people. For more on the topic, Merry Jane has written a great article you can read here.

Backdoor Medicine: How Cannabis Suppositories Can Save Lives

You want me to put that where?!

This is a common reaction to the suggestion that cannabis can be used as a suppository. Rectal administrations (suppositories) have an unfairly bad reputation in North America, despite the diverse benefits they offer. And we have personally seen countless successes over the years including relief from simple hemorrhoid inflammation to IBS and even dimished size of tumors with prostate and rectal cancers. We can show you how to make your own using FECO oil or you can select ready to insert suppositories from CBD Alive.

This article aims to educate about the advantages associated with the rectal application of cannabis and provide a simple set of guidelines for the effective use of suppositories. Click here to read the full article.

As always, we’re here to guide you through the product selection process. Ask a consultant for more information on your next delivery or visit.

DEA Can’t get Past FDA

In any situation it is important to take a look at all sides before forming an opinion. While it is often justified and certainly easy to point fingers at the DEA for their reluctance to reschedule cannabis, it is crucial to note the other organizations with power over cannabis. The FDA is a major stopping point for the DEA and Leafly’s recent article The Accepted Medical Use of Marijuana: States Need to Take Action Now to Protect Patient Rights explains in further depth how they are connected.

 

Proposition 64 Lets Freedom Ring

Voting yes on Proposition 64 was a difficult decision for many in the cannabis industry. Although legalization is what we have been fighting for all along, certain aspects of the initiative had the industry divided. For more on that, read The Prop 64 Conundrum.

Although it has only been barely four weeks since Prop 64, passed we are already seeing movement. Recreational sales will not be licensed until 2018, but those awaiting clemency for violating marijuana laws may see freedom more quickly than expected. Thousands stand to benefit in the coming months and years. For a full article on the topic click here.
