Blunt +CBD

The cleanest and safest blunt on the market with no toxic additives or tobacco and it just happens to test positive for CBD! I explain it to my friends as a blunt made out of weed, just to geek them up, but then I explain further that it’s a hemp wrap that naturally contains CBD. And the number one question that I get is what’s CBD….

So: “There’s a lot more to Weed than just Smoking it” 

Cannabiniol (CBD) is the second highest compound to make up cannabis plants, at roughly 40%.  While CBD is similar to THC, it’s composition lacks any psychoactive effects typically associated with THC and is purely medicinal. CBD stands out because it is both non-psychoactive and displays a broad range of potential medical applications. These properties make it especially attractive as a therapeutic agent. CBD can actually cure cancer! For more on CBD I recommend reading this article on : Leafly  where you can find several different therapeutic benefits to CBD.

But I’m not here to talk about CBD, the subject here is definitely Hemp Wraps. Blunt wraps that contain CBD. Yep, but don’t get too excited. During the process of smoking you are exposing yourself to carbon monoxide, which is known to increase your chances of cancer. However if your going to smoke a blunt Juicy Jays or High Hemp Wraps are your best choice because they have eliminated the increased risks of cancer from inhalation of excess chemicals commonly found in tobacco based blunts. And they are so smooth.

Their method of farming hemp is organic from the seed up. And they pride themselves in not using any formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides. Please keep in mind that these hemp wraps are NOT infused with CBD. They are naturally occurring. Below you can see the tested composition a single Hemp wrap:

It rolls like a blunt, looks like a blunt and burns like a blunt. And though neither regulated or tested under the FDA these blunts just taste better and there’s got to be a reason for that!  Definitely you should try out hemp wraps.

Yes you read that right! I got my dogs high and they liked it! Turns out humans are not the only mammals with cannabinoid receptors, in fact most mammals do and you can definitely get your dogs high. However safety is of utmost importance.

The amount of cannabis given to your doggie is very important. There have actually been reports of dogs dying :

They have to ingest a pretty large amount of weed to actually die, Downing said, but it doesn’t necessarily take a lot to have an adverse effect.

But in the same breath, Cannabis can be especially helpful for older dogs suffering from hip dysplasia and glaucoma, common issues with a majority of older pets. It also helps to alleviate pain, stimulate appetite, and lead to a better quality of life. Cannabis-infused tincture is one of the best forms to cannabis to give to your pet.

I fact ,

The late Dr. Doug Kramer, known as the “Vet Guru” risked his career by promoting medical marijuana for dogs. He developed a homemade tincture for his very own dog that suffered from cancer. He realized the benefits she had from using marijuana which made her last few months much more comfortable. He started Enlightened Veterinary Therapeutics, the country’s first vet to offer medical marijuana for dogs and other pets.

Another great and safe option (also what I did) are these homemade cannabis infused dog treats! I made them for my dogs:

The the effects looked like this:

Followed by some napping,  silly dog smiles and munchies, they were so licking their chops for more! Plus, the pumpkin helps to alleviate any stomach issues, and promotes healthy digestions. Plus, it’s a great way to use any leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cooked/canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon bacon grease (melted)
  • 3 Tablespoons cannabis butter (melted)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix your pumpkin, egg, and salt together.
  3. Slowly add a cup of flour at a time (until the consistency is more doughy, and less sticky)
  4. Roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness, and cut into shapes
  5. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.
  6. Let the treat cool-down for 10 minutes before basting with melted bacon grease & cannabis butter.

Let’s even have our dogs lit! And Definitely check out The Weed Scene for some awesome recipes like this Dank Cheesecake:

There’s a lot more to Weed than just Smoking it

Cannabis, weed, ganja, pot, whatever you call it. If you smoke it or not you know it gets you high. And when it comes to drug test all we worry about is THC. But there’s a lot more to weed than just smoking it and THC is only one of the several cannabinoids found in this beauty of a plant….
[read more=”Read More” less=”Read less”]

Our bodies actually house what is known as the the endogenous cannabinoid system: “Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.”

This plant has power! And it is a cure to so many different illnesses that it’s astonishing! And that’s all thanks those these wonderful things called cannabinoids.

THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) the one we are most familiar with has it’s psychoactive properties that get us high but CBD (cannabidiol ) can stop cancer.  

Actually several cannabinoids found in marijuana have demonstrated the ability to stop cancer angiogenesis and metastasis, while inducing apoptosis. Cannabidiol (CBD) has shown to be the most effective so far.

In English, cannabinoids prevent cancer cells from growing and spreading, then makes them commit suicide.

There’s :

  • CBN : Which is actually a breakdown product of the famous THC. It helps us sleep, increases our appetite, is an anti-convulsion, anti-inflammatory, is even an antibiotic, it helps with pain, burns and more.
  • THCA :The precursor to THC and a great reason to try a raw cannabis smoothie!  Because not only does it help you not vomit, not get bitten by bugs and happens to be a great anti-inflammatory, Raw THCA is an antioxidant! And can prevent cancer and possibly Parkinson’s Disease.
  • CBG : With it’s antibacterial effects is known to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, (particularly in its acidic CBGA form,) inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth.

And when looking at the medical benefits to marijuana it’s important to know that all it’s components work together to create this wonderful thing known as the “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components.

Consider terpenes for example. There’s an aromatherapy aspect to weed too because the delicious scent it carries is all thanks to the predominate terpenes in its’ strain.

Marijuana’s bouquet of terpenes—that “riot of perfumes,” as the poet (and hashish-eater) Arthur Rimbaud once said—plays another important role.

Terpenoids and cannabinoids both increase blood flow, enhance cortical activity and kills respiratory pathogens. When it comes to choosing which strain is right for you, it’s recommended that “the nose knows.” If you like how it smells, your probably going to like the effect. There are over 200 different terpenes: linalool, myreene, delta 3, etc. My favorite being  Limonene, with it’s citrus smell, found in white widow, along with:

And then we have the concentrates! Rosin, live resin, Co2, Pho…

According to High Times, “The rosin revolution is real”   

Concentrated cannabis products, such as shatter, wax, pre-filled vape pens and related extracts are in incredible demand across the country. And if you have already tried it then you know why! For me I need so little to get such a huge impact! And that’s because buds, typically contain between 10-20 percent THC (getting as potent as about 30 percent, in rare cases), in contrast concentrates can offer between 60-95 percent THC, making for a much more efficient way to get your medicine. For more on concentrates I recommend Mass Roots.

There’s a lot to know about cannabis and how it helps us. I’m not an expert and so I have provided several links throughout this post for you to get more info. In conclusion I hope that what you get out of this is that I put everything together for you. The cannabinoids, terpenes, concentrates, endocannabinoid system, and the entourage effect. I didn’t go into great detail about each, because I’m not an expert, instead I just provided you with the links. Like an all in one everything you should know about weed grocery list in a way. The cannabis movement is something that’s very important to me and I just wanted to put it out there that weed does way more than just get you high and we should all try to educate ourselves to the best of our ability.
