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

Terpene Spotlight – Terpinolene

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

Benefits of Cannabis for Man’s Best Friend

Obligatory disclaimer here – at this time, there is limited empirical evidence available about specific benefits of cannabis for our furry friends. And just because something is natural doesn’t mean it’s safe. After all, dogs are allergic to all kinds of things that wouldn’t harm a human – like chocolate. But dogs have an endocannabinoid system with receptors in their brains and nervous system, and cannabis is proving to be an effective pain reliever for canines. Read more

The Best (Debunked) Myths about 4/20

April 20 comes round once a year, and whether you indulge or not, the day is recognized as a national holiday of sorts for cannabis culture. In addition to killer deals and general merriment at your favorite dispensary in states with legal adult use (ahem, KYND is all in at Mynt’s Spring Jamboree!), the day is awash in myth and mystery. There are tons of illicit/thrilling/random rumors that continue to circulate about the day’s origins. Here are a handful of the best (debunked) myths about 4/20. Read more

A Review of Kynd’s CBD Tincture

As a content writer, I’m no stranger to neck tension. No matter how committed I am to maintaining good posture, using an elevated workspace, taking breaks, and downing all the water, the muscles and ligaments in the back of my neck and along my shoulders often start to tighten by the end of the day. On bad days, that tension turns into a headache, and that’s when I reach for the ibuprofen. Until the day I decided to try Kynd’s CBD tincture instead. Hilariously, it felt like a crazy leap of faith at the time. Now I just wonder what took me so long. Read more

Cannabis and the Photographer

When Jeramie Lu started shooting for Kynd Cannabis Company, we needed him to take the kind of photos that would tell the stories of not only our many cannabis strains and products, but also our athlete and creative ambassadors. That wasn’t a problem for Jeramie – he’ll tell you himself, he loves the challenge of telling a story with a single image. The self-taught photographer has and continues to exceed our expectations, and with his newfound introduction to cannabis, it only made sense to get this guy on our team. Yep, we’re thrilled to announce that Jeramie Lu is the newest Kynd creative ambassador. Read more
