What is CBD and Why is it Such a Big Deal?

December 30, 2016
what is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD)

Editors Note: A previous version of this blog post incorrectly asserted the DEA made a scheduling action on cannabis constituent cannabidiol (CBD). Rather, the DEA change was to that of a tracking code, and has no change to the legality or illegality of cannabidiol (CBD).

Cannabinoid Effects and Health Benefits

December 30, 2016

leafbuyer_blog-cbd_effectsThere are over 80 known cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. These chemical compounds offer a wide variety of solid health benefits for your mind and your body. While we know of 80 different cannabinoids, we know very little about all of the cannabinoid effects on the body, largely due to so many long years of prohibition. The prohibition era prevented scientists from being able to research and study the effects of cannabinoids on the human body. However, we do know much about the more important cannabinoids, and we aim to go in depth on how exactly they can benefit you, so that when you're purchasing marijuana, you can choose cannabis strains or products suited better for your individual desires and medicinal needs. We'll go in depth today about THC, THC-A, THC-V, CBN, CBD, CBD-A, CBC, CBC-A, CBG, and CBG-A.

How to Find Affordable Weed Vaporizers

December 29, 2016

affordable weed vaporizers logo feature imageOne of the concerns about the speed at which legalization efforts have ramped up in the US, with nearly 1/5 of the States (also nearly 20% of the total US population) now having access to legal weed, is that we may be vulnerable to a public health concern similar to the decades that it took to uncover the ill-effects of tobacco consumption.
In many of the studies done thus far,  it seems like the health benefits of cannabis and related products have the potential to do more good than harm, though we require much more study before drawing a conclusion.

Marijuana Friendly Colorado: 420 Hotels in Denver You Should Know About

December 29, 2016

420 hotels in denver logoOn a jaunt around the city of Denver, smells drifting, trapped within the gaseous oxygen environment we humans love so much, range from delicious food to dog food (THANKS PURINA); however, the conspicuous pungence– a verifiable terpene assault — produced by marijuana is recognizable ever so slightly (and sometimes more so) interwoven throughout the city's gridded downtown streets. The question becomes, is it from public use or private? Alternatively: Do I care?

Laws that Bend the Law: How YOU Can Buy Pot in California

December 28, 2016

How to Buy Pot in California The most populous state in the US passed adult recreational sales and use during state elections in 2016, formally normalizing cannabis into the ranks of California's overwhelming economic capabilities.
While the Trump Administration speaks multitudes — with Trump expressing that states should decide yet choosing an opponent of marijuana reform for Attorney General —  the successful campaign to legalize marijuana in California has communicated volumes to the world (and made it easier to buy pot in California). "We are here," voters said. "If they can do it, there's more than hope" replied the worldly, clandestine cannabis-affectionate. In a triumph of both state and federal acknowledgment of citizen rights and adult freedoms, we are left with a burning question: how to get our hands on some cannabis.

Concentrate Conversation: What’s New in the World of Extracts?

December 28, 2016

There have been a lot of new developments in the world of concentrates within the past two years, especially right here in Colorado.  If you refer back to Leafbuyer's article, "What are Dabs?  A How-To Guide?", you can learn the basics or refresh your memory regarding the definition and types of concentrates.  There has been a lot of focus and concern with relation to permissible percentages of solvents in the finished extracted product.  The most common solvents used to make concentrates are propane, butane, ethanol, and CO2 (carbon dioxide).  However, propane and butane have come under a lot of scrutiny, due to the dangers associated with nonprofessional extractions.  In 2015, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) implemented contaminant testing for residual solvents and microbials (Source: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sites/default/files/2014%20MED%20Annual%20Report_1.pdf).

Cleaning Your Dab Rig

December 27, 2016

How To Clean a Dab RingWhatever type of rig you use to smoke concentrates, it will need to be cleaned periodically.  The sticky consistency of reclaim, or the caked-up material that collects on the sides of your dab rig, can be challenging to clean if you do not know the correct cleaning products to use.  It’s quite simple; if you have cleaned a glass bong before, you are already familiar with the process.  The only variable is the type of nail you use to dab with, titanium, quartz, ceramic, electronic, etc.  This will determine how you clean said nail, respectively.  Depending on the size and height of you rig, you may also want to grab some pipe cleaners for satisfactory cleaning of all nooks and crannies.

The Best Dispensaries in Boulder, CO

December 26, 2016

Best Dispensaries in BoulderUnsurprisingly, Boulder, CO and the dispensaries therein maintain an immaculate educational environment, a fortuitous social culture of impeccable diversity, and a physical landscape — the flatirons — boasting a rugged amalgamation of mountainous structures with a city built around it. Boulder was founded in 1871, five years before Colorado became a state, annexing the town. Today, it'd be hard to imagine the two apart.

The Art of the Tolerance Break

December 24, 2016

art of the tolerance break logoDo you remember the days when one toke off of the blunt would have you drooling high? Back when you first started smoking cannabis regularly, you had a very low tolerance, and your little bags of weed probably lasted you a lot longer. You've probably noticed that nowadays you have to smoke a lot more weed a lot more often just to feel like you used to feel when you first started to get high on the regular. Now you've probably noticed that all of this consumption is burning a hole in your wallet, and that isn't good. If this sounds like you, it's probably a good time to consider taking a tolerance break, which is actually an artform. It's a short, tough road, but you will be much better off by being patient and taking the time to go through with it. So here it is, the art of the tolerance break.
