Where cannabis that you eat is concerned, it’s the $20,000 question: How long do edibles last?
Are you ready for a taste of the least controversial method of consuming cannabis ever? Try a tincture. “Why would I want to do that,” you ask? Because tinctures have been described as the most underrated of all the pot products.
They’re described as such because there aren’t as many fun — and potentially punishable — reefer rituals associated with their use. But that doesn’t mean that they’re somehow second-rate.
Yep, you read that right. For many people, tinctures often work better than every other method of cannabis consumption, including cream, pills, gummies, and dissolvable strips. It really depends on what you need from your marijuana and how you prefer to take it.

CBD, inflammation, and the health of your body are a hot topic these days.
With new discoveries into the nature of disease and how your body works, the medical community is finally coming to realize that CBD is a safe and effective way to treat common ailments that were previously thought untreatable.
One of the easiest and best ways to cook with cannabis is to mix up your own batch of Instant Pot cannabutter.
Cannabutter is just what it sounds like: butter that contains THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. And because it’s basically butter, you can use it instead of regular butter in all your favorite recipes.

The language of marijuana is a veritable goldmine of wacky verbiage. From airplane and angola to swag and sticky icky, there’s literally a slang term for every situation. Most of these terms can be used interchangeably as the mood hits, but some common words have very specific meanings and should be used only when the right conditions are met.
Case in point: the terms blunt, joint, and spliff. Along with a few others, they may be the most common words in the cannabis dictionary. But do you know the difference between blunt, joint, and spliff? The answer might surprise you.
Even though cannabis enthusiasts are a pretty laid-back bunch, using the wrong language can be a definite give-away that you’re inexperienced or “unedumacated.” The difference between blunt, joint, and spliff is a prime example. Sure, they both contain marijuana, but that’s where the similarities end. What’s more, there are some pretty distinct differences that set one apart from the other.
To illustrate, it’s like the difference between a car and a truck. Yes, they both have four wheels and an engine, but you’re going to get some pretty strange looks if you point at a Mazda Miata and call it a Chevy Silverado. The terms just don’t mix. The same is true for a blunt, a joint, and a spliff.
Not sure what makes a blunt a blunt, a joint a joint, and a spliff a spliff? That’s why we’re here. So sit back, relax, and prepare to be informed. [Read more…]
