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

Real Talk – Synthetic Cannabis is Bad News

Last week, the focus around here was on clean weed – the stuff that’s been tested in accordance with stringent state regulations to ensure that you’re getting pure, consistent products every time you shop at a Nevada dispensary. As it happens, the folks at our favorite downtown Reno dispensary, Mynt, recently published a post about the dangers of synthetic cannabis, which is kind of the opposite of clean weed.

Cannabis and Cancer – Does One Help the Other?

While it isn’t recognized as a treatment for cancer or any other medical condition by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (and is currently still classified as a Schedule I controlled substance, meaning it can’t be legally prescribed, possessed, or sold under federal law), there are a number of small studies and plenty of anecdotal evidence that point to cannabis’ efficacy against certain cancer symptoms.
