Why Buying Cannabis Based on THC Percentages Alone is a Mistake

Any budtender will tell you that in the fledging cannabis industry, the majority of customer interest is solely on THC percentages. That limited focus stands out as one of the biggest tells that education in this industry has yet to catch up to the masses. Why? Simple.

That’s just one reason it’s worth your while to look past the THC percentage. Read more

Cannabis and the Tattoo Artist

And while it may seem a little too obvious that the long-haired, soft-spoken muralist/tattoo artist is a proponent of cannabis, there’s more to it – and to him – than you might think. Read more

Terpene Spotlight – Myrcene

Aroma and flavor are some of the most pleasing parts of the cannabis plant. From citrus to pine to diesel, these scents and tastes come compounds known as terpenes.

We loved their information so much, we had to take that idea and run with it a bit. Read more

Is Your Weed Clean?

If you stop to think about the potential exposure to pesticides and other contaminants that your cannabis had on its journey from seedling to plant to grow room to the nug in your hand, well, it’s a little eye-opening. As a seedling, it could have been in soil fumigated with pesticides. As a plant, it was probably doused with chemicals intended to kill insects and fungus and disease. And in the grow room, it might have been exposed to the chemicals used in pest strips – the ones that tend to stick around in enclosed spaces.

Why does that matter to you? You’re about to fire up all those layers of pesticides, some of which have the bad habit of becoming toxic under combustion.

So how can you be sure your weed is clean? Read more
