You Might Know It Doesn’t Get You High, But How Does CBD Make You Feel?

For years, I was a concentrate-loving, daily herbivore. But, perhaps due to age or simply a change of interest, I found myself consuming cannabis more sparingly and opting for very different products. The newest go-to in my household stash? Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD products, like Elixinol CBD extract, are available in local stores and online as tinctures and oil infusions. These infusions can be taken like a dietary supplement, enjoyed by consumers in low to moderate doses either regularly or as-needed. But how does CBD make you feel, really? The subtle effects of the cannabinoid may surprise you. Unlike its more famous relative, THC, CBD does not produce intoxication. That doesn’t mean, however, that the compound won’t have affected your mind. The experience that CBD provides is far more su...

This Newspaper Handed Out Joints To Celebrate Michigan Legalization

The journalists at Lansing’s City Post were heroes on Thursday morning. Laden with kind joints, the paper’s employees gave friendly greetings to those passing by City Hall and offered them the gift of free cannabis. It only took an hour to run out of jays, but not everyone was accepting the offer. More than half (56 percent) of Michigan residents voted yes on the cannabis legalization law and that’s presumably in the ballpark of people taking free weed from the alternative newspaper. “We wanted to do something to celebrate this occasion,” said City Pulse reporter Kyle Kaminski to the Lansing State Journal, adding that his view that fewer people getting arrested and prosecuted or even incarcerated for cannabis offenses was a good thing The new law says that if you are 21 or over, you may no...

Cannabis is America’s Next Wellness Obsession

The 2018 midterms made Michigan the tenth U.S. state to legalize recreational marijuana. With the vote, the state enters a cannabis market thriving in states like Colorado, Washington and, most notably, California, which has surpassed the UK as the 5th largest economy in world. People are quitting their jobs and feverishly moving across the country for the “the green rush”—it’s literal reefer madness. To some, the legalization of pot was a formality—license to smoke up without that nagging cop-phobia to ruin the high. But this reaches far beyond the stoner community: America finds itself in a full-on cannabis revolution. It’s no longer about graduating from a dealer to a budtender—the entire consumer market is pivoting to cater toward buyers who aren’t really “pot people.” First came “Lega...

8 Ways to Save Money When Buying Cannabis at Dispensaries

The price of cannabis at dispensaries shouldn’t surprise you. Word of mouth has spread the problem since the first legal dispensaries opened. The prices include huge tax burdens, but there’s nothing new about that. In the runup to legalization, the cost issues filled the news and political debate. With more states authorizing sales, more customers are hitting the wall of high prices, and they’re looking for ways around the problem. As more states authorize sales, some of the pricing issues will shake out. Suppliers will merge, acquire, or sell out. And, the largest producers will make deals where economies of scale make sense. Evolving farm and production methods will lower the wholesale price. And, heartier breeding will create cost-efficient cannabis strains at the risk of homogenization...

Cannabis Smokers 45% Less Likely To Get Bladder Cancer

Cannabis users were 45 percent less likely to contract bladder cancer than their more abstemious peers, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) – a branch of the National Institutes for Health. The NCI study examined 82,050 men of different ages and socioeconomic backgrounds from 2002-2003 with the purpose of discovering any links between smoking tobacco and smoking marijuana and the risk of bladder cancer. Researchers followed up with the respondents 11 years later. Just over 40 percent of those surveyed said they had used marijuana compared to 57 percent who said the same of tobacco.
