10 Beautifully Balanced Cannabis Strains to Check Out

When it comes to the enjoyment and appeal of any given cannabis strain, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not to mention, the circumstances which call for consumption in the first place.

In some instances, nothing will do better than a heady, energising and uplifting high that motivates you to conquer the world. In others, melting into human puddle of pure laziness for hours on end is the way to go. However you feel and whatever you have in mind, there’s an endless array of strains to choose from.

But what if you’re looking for a more balanced experience?

Right now, the commercial cannabis market is packed to bursting with well-balanced sativa/indica hybrids. There’s also a growing market for strains with a pretty even ratio of THC and CBD. In both instances, you can expect a beautifully balanced high that delivers the best of all worlds and is perfectly controllable.

As for the best in the business, we strongly suggest checking out the ten frontrunners outlined below:

Cannatonic

Recipient of multiple awards and packed with plenty of CBD, Cannatonic also has a pretty perfect split of indica and sativa genetics. Cannatonic was engineered by combining Reina Madre

Get Busy in the Kitchen With Foodmaker Holly Haines

Holly Haines likes to describe herself as a “foodmaker” rather than a chef. “I feel like [chef is]not only a title, but also a rank that is earned working in a restaurant. I worked at Subway in high school, but I don’t think that counts.”

So while she isn’t technically trained, Holly has built a loyal following of fans who love her thoughtful spins on classic recipes, like experimenting with ube (a purple sweet potato from the Philippines) and her preference for using black cocoa powder for her famous “black-ass” desserts. (Psst… here’s a recipe for her black-ass dulche de leche brownies.)

Holly also advocates that people eat their feelings. In fact, she wrote the book on it: How to Eat Your Feelings is a recipe book about how cooking can be a form of meditation. She also has other recipe books like Best of Instagram: Desserts and SIDES, a collection of small bites, sides and dessert recipes (all available for download at itsholly.com).

Hemp CBD Across State Lines: South Carolina

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA.

This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp.

In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-derived cannabidiol (Hemp CBD). Today we turn to South Carolina.

Before the enactment of HB 3449 in March 28, 2019, the cultivation of hemp was strictly limited in South Carolina. Indeed, the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (“SCDA”), which oversees the production of hemp, could only issue

Sonoma County Cannabis Dispensaries That Deliver Better Positioned During Pandemic

Every adult in Petaluma did not get a delivery of cannabis last week. It only seemed that way to Dave Tohill, a kind of mobile “budtender” for Mercy Wellness, the Cotati-based dispensary. In a single day, Tohill had 40-plus deliveries in Petaluma alone.

One of his customers was a woman who’d spent the morning working in her yard, just off Maria Drive.

“I’ve driven past your house three times today,” said Tohill, as he delivered her package. “I like what you’ve done with the pavers.”

How One Young Entrepreneur’s Simple Fix May Change Cannabis Grinders Forever

Zachary McCreedy was looking for an innovative product to create. Something small, simple and reasonably priced, he says, that people use every day.

The 26-year-old entrepreneur from Norfolk, Virginia half jokes that he first thought about creating a new kind of spoon. “Spoons are used by people all over the world billions of times a day,” says McCreedy. “Imagine the glory of inventing a better spoon. Nobel prize worthy if you ask me.”

Five years ago, McCreedy decided to take a hiatus from college to give more attention to a website he’d created about table tennis. People were loving the 20 or so informative articles he had featured on his site and he was pulling down a few hundred dollars a month of passive income.

Ganja Tourism Comes To A Halt in Jamaica

CANNABIS CULTURE – The first event to take a hit was the Stepping High Festival, slated for March 20-21st in Negril, on Jamaica’s west coast.

It’s the longest running ganja festival in Jamaica and a staple on the event circuit. Ready to make it’s 17th appearance, organiser, Karlene Connell, stated in a release that the event was suspended indefinitely. This seems to the state of affairs with events and cannabis tourism not being exempt. 

This was the first in what may be a litany of event cancellations and vacation halts for the 2020 tourist season. The high-season runs from January to March and tourism is Jamaica’s largest income earner. With the amendment to the Dangerous Drugs Act, in 2015, cannabis is not fully legal in Jamaica, but one can carry up to 2 ounces and licensed dispensaries can sell cannabis products. Tourists and visitors are required to have a statement from a medical doctor or medical cannabis card to get access to medicinal marijuana products from legal dispensaries and herb-houses. 

Some local dispensaries also accept State issued medical marijuana cards from the United States. The Corona Virus may have started to spread at the outset of the early months

Hemp CBD Across Europe: Spain

The enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill and the legalization of hemp and hemp derivatives, including cannabidiol (“CBD”), has led to a massive CBD craze in the United States. The highly coveted cannabinoid is infused with everything: bath bombs, dog treats and even workout clothes (yes, workout clothes!). According to a recent study by Cowen, the sales of these products are expected to reach $16 billion by 2025.

Thanks to globalization, this sudden boom is not contained within the U.S. borders. Europe has also experienced a huge uptick in the sales of these products, which are expected to reach nearly $1.7 billion by 2023.

In light of this global expansion and the desire of many of our clients to export their hemp and hemp-derived CBD (“Hemp CBD”) products to Europe, we are presenting a mini-series that briefly analyzes how certain European countries treat hemp and the sale and marketing of hemp-derived CBD. In the second post of these series, we now turn our attention to Spain, whose legal framework is closely intertwined with that of the European Union (EU). (Our first post, on Great Britain, can be found here.)

Spain has a long history of hemp production. It is said that the sails of

Health Canada Asks Cannabis Industry for Help With COVID-19 Testing

Canadian officials are turning to the cannabis industry to see if laboratories typically used to check for cannabinoids can be also used to test for COVID-19.

In an email sent to licensed cannabis industry executives on Thursday obtained by BNN Bloomberg, Health Canada acting director general Joanne Garrah asked respondents if there was any spare lab capacity to assist the country with COVID-19 testing.

“Health Canada is working to identify lab capacity that might be available across the country in various sectors, including at licensed cannabis production sites, to assist with supporting COVID-19 testing,” the email stated.

Lack of Protective Gear at Cannabis Labs Could Threaten Weed Supply

Labs have been taking protective steps like staggering workers’ shifts and implementing additional sanitation measures.

Despite layoffs and downsizing in the cannabis industry over recent months, U.S. cannabis testing labs are still doing a brisk business, even in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Staff at some labs have voiced concerns over a potential lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks, gloves and goggles, as well as sanitization supplies. But there is another issue. Should any such labs be forced to close as a result of the outbreak, many states could experience serious delays and other issues with their cannabis supply.
