Cannabinoid Profile: THC-V

Cannabinoid Profile: THC-V

The marijuana active ingredient, THCV produces an energetic buzz and works to eliminate the urge to eat. Unfortunately, there isn’t a large amount of scientific research available on THCV, so it isn’t commonly listed on the testing breakdown of cannabis flowers. If you do find yourself in search of THCV heavy strains though, here are a few options to keep an eye out for.

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)

Many people have heard of it, and rave about the benefits it has, but a lot of people are still asking, what is Rick Simpson Oil? Rick Simpson Oil, sometimes referred to as ‘active oil,’ is an incredibly potent concentrate that has proven to be a strong medication for serious ailments such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, tumors, and chronic pain.

 

Vegan Buddha Co2 Vaporizer Cartridge

Vegan Buddha is a company that takes pride in the quality of its products. Their vape cartridges are solvent free, maintain a consistent light gold color, are potent, and naturally flavored. The pull is smooth and the high hits quickly. You can feel a strong difference between the strains, which makes it easy to find the perfect one for your medical needs. Vegan Buddha vapes are better used with a multi-temp or higher powered battery, as the oil in them is thicker.

Personally, I have the Strawberry Diesel (sativa) and Velvet (indica) vape cartridges. The sativa gives a nice energetic lift and has a subtle lemon flavor. After one or two drags I can feel a nice head change that often sparks an activity or creative project. The indica vape produces a soothing heaviness that floods the body. Immediately, I can feel my muscles begin to relax against my bones. The stress relief and sleepiness it brings is perfect for the end of a long day. It’s no wonder their Velvet cartridge took home first place at the 2016 NorCal Medical Cannabis Cup.

The company also cultivates beautiful flowers. The strawberry diesel that Universal Collective carried was covered in crystals, tested above 20% THC, and had patients talking for weeks after it was all gone. Whether it’s their oils or their flowers, this company is on top of their game and one to watch out for. I would highly recommend trying Vegan Buddha meds.

Prop M…N…No?

Prop M…N…No?

In 2016 California voted to legalize recreational cannabis, signing into effect a big blank sheet of paper that we are now working to fill with rules and regulations.  March 7th, 2017 is an important day, as it will solidify the framework for this quickly upcoming industry. The question is, which measure do we vote for and what happens if neither gets passed?
