We have a special kind of flavonoid to thank. Here’s the deal with anthocyanin and cannabis. Read more

Cannabis and NF – A Patient’s Story

Kynd Cannabis Company got its start crafting premium cannabis products intended to benefit medical patients in need of therapeutic alternatives to traditional pharmaceuticals. And while we’ve branched into concentrations for adult-use needs and interests, we continue to proudly develop the medicines so many people need. That’s why we love hearing stories like the one shared by Chris Tennier. Her son, Dillon, has a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis (NF). Here’s how cannabis has helped. Read more

Cannabis & The Gym

We love challenging the stigma around cannabis, as evidenced by our amazing creative ambassadors – there’s the jewelry maker, the photographer, the tattoo artist, the DJ, and the gypsy wagon guy. Now, we’re tackling that tired trope of the lazy stoner stuck to the sofa scarfing bags of chips. Here are three reasons cannabis helps you make the most of your gym time. Read more

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about CBD Oil

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held its first-ever CBD regulations meeting at the end of May, with manufacturers and scientists practically begging for a regulatory framework to control the current “Wild West” climate. The FDA played coy, insisting that a number of questions remain about the safety of cannabis compounds. The upshot for the consumer? Educate yourself about cannabis. Don’t assume that CBD added to an energy drink is doing anything for you. And when it comes to CBD oil in particular, here’s what to know about anecdotal evidence, testing, and consistency.

Let’s Talk about the Entourage Effect (Again)

We’ve written about the entourage effect before, but it’s a subject worthy of further discussion. The idea that medicinal substances are more effective in their whole, natural state is nothing new. That’s the very premise of whole plant medicine, which has been around for centuries. But breaking through the clever marketing spin and jargon surrounding the whole-plant-versus-isolates debate isn’t always easy. So let’s talk about the entourage effect. Read more

New Strain Alert – Obi-Wan OG

We love bringing new strains to the Nevada cannabis market, and after a long, careful selection process, we’re especially excited to drop Obi-Wan OG. This delightful indica-dominant hybrid comes by way of Ocean Grown Seeds – that purveyor of excellence, with more than 30 years of experience in breeding and genetic selection – and the strain is the result of a cross between Ghost OG and Alien Rift. Here’s how things are playing out so far. Read more

CBD and the Psychoactive Label

An attorney by the name of Ian A. Stewart recently wrote an intelligent article about CBD and the outright false claim that it is non-psychoactive. It’s a statement made in just about every article or news story you can find about CBD – including posts right here – but as cannabis becomes more mainstream, it’s important to strive for accuracy. The truth is, CBD isn’t non-psychoactive. It’s non-intoxicating. And while the difference may seem minor, it’s significant. Read more

Something Different for Mom this Mother’s Day

Being a mother is one of those amazing experiences that are at once incredibly precious and unbelievably hard. And yes, Mother’s Day is one of those Hallmark holidays, but let’s be clear – all moms deserve at least one day of recognition and gratitude every year. Take her to breakfast, send flowers or chocolates, spring for a massage or spa day, or consider gifting her with an alternative to more mainstream stress-busters. Because motherhood may be magical, but it’s one stressful job. And goodies like these may help. Read more

Our terpene spotlights have covered limonene, myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene, and now we’ve come to the least common of the most common cannabis terpenes. Yep, we’re talking about terpinolene, a kind of wild card in the world of terpenes. Here’s what makes it so unusual. Read more
