Chewy Cannabis Granola Bars

Chewy Cannabis Granola Bars

Granola bars are, for the most part, crunchy or chewy. Since chewy is always my preference, this bar rocks.

There are many options for the additions. While this combo of chocolate and nuts is my favorite so far, I have also tried it with dried cranberries and ginger, which I liked. I may drizzle a few pieces with canna-chocolate; I have a few clients at a local dispensary who put in a request.

So, my latest batch of cannabutter is the bomb. I used a strain called Afghani, and it smokes great and is just amazing in medibles. A heavy indica strain, this is a total relaxation buzz, with an uplifting and mellow vibe. I used my usual ounce of shake weed to four sticks of butter, but just because I could I tossed in some bud. About a gram — honestly, I can’t really tell if it is stronger than usual. My sleep has been great, and since I have been kind of stressed out of late, I find that this batch of butter totally takes the edge off. I had medicated cinnamon toast for breakfast one day last week, and I was essentially blissfully high all day. Kind of beautiful.

Cannabis and Pet Health

Sleep and Indica

Sleep and Indica

The effects of cannabis on your sleep vary widely depending on the user, the strain, the dose and environmental factors. But the part of its influence is always the same: Marijuana influences the body’s system,  which is a complex network of receptors sensitive to chemical compounds found in the drug.

It has been seen in  many people that if they smoke an indica type cannabis or eat indica edibles before bed they will fall asleep or feel more relaxed and be able to fall asleep easier.

The complex system in the body mitigates our stress and anxiety responses — you may have noticed that it’s hard to fall asleep if you’re not relaxed — and new research suggests that cannabis that affects this body system can directly promote sleep.

For now, though, marijuana is the only medicine that makes use of this fascinating part of our anatomy. And we’re just beginning to understand the subtleties of how its cannabinoids can modify our nightly rest.  More studies are needed.

Difference Between THC and CBD and how to Use Them

Difference Between THC and CBD and how to Use Them

If you have been wondering the difference between THC and CBD there are very bid differences. THC is psychoactive and CBD is non-psycoactive meaning it is not mind altering.  Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main ingredients in the marijuana plant. Both CBD and THC belong to a unique class of compounds known as cannabinoids.

While many strains of marijuana are known for having abundant levels of THC, high-CBD strains are less common. But CBD has recently started to draw attention from the medical community, who seem to prefer CBD over THC. Here, we explain the differences between these two compounds.

1) The High from Marijuana

THC is probably best known for being the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. CBD, however, is non-psychoactive. In other words, CBD can’t get you high. While disappointing to recreational users, this unique feature of CBD is what makes it so appealing as a medicine.

Doctors usually prefer treatments with minimal side effects, which has been a major barrier to the acceptance of medical marijuana. Likewise, CBD has been used to treat younger children with various ailments.

2) Anxiety from THC

THC is known to cause some people to feel anxious or paranoid. But CBD is believed to have the opposite effect. In fact, studies show that CBD works to counteract the anxiety caused by ingesting THC. A number of studies also suggest that CBD can reduce anxiety when administered on its own.

3) Balance of Not getting Too High

In addition to being non-psychoactive, CBD seems to have antipsychotic properties. Researchers believe that CBD may protect marijuana users from getting too high by reducing the psychosis-like effects of THC.

4) Getting Better Sleep with THC not CBD

One of the most common uses of marijuana is as a sleep aid. THC is believed to be responsible for most of marijuana’s sleep-inducing effects. On the other hand, studies suggest CBD acts to promote wakefulness, making CBD a poor choice as a sleep medicine.
