Leafbuyer Presents: MiNDFUL – Applying Core Values From Colfax to Chicago

March 24, 2017

MiNDFUL budLooking at the current cannabis industry in Colorado, it is hard to believe that it started just 8 years ago. A regulated medical market arose in 2009 and adult-use dispensaries began appearing on street corners 5 years later, so citizens have had the chance to watch the legal cannabis market radically evolve over time. Small mom and pop dispensaries have become cannabis industry giants. Let's take a look at one of these phenomenal success stories: MiNDFUL.

What Role Will CBD Play in Florida Medical Marijuana?

February 22, 2017

florida medical marijuana, CBDThe use of CBD (cannabidiol) has been and will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical marijuana program. The use of CBD has been legal in Florida since 2014. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed senate bill 1030 into law in 2014, which allowed medically qualified patients with a written doctor's recommendation to get access to CBD oil as treatment for debilitating conditions. Under this low-THC law, patients were (and still are!) able to possess cannabis oil that contains 10% or more CBD as long as it contains no more than 8/10ths of one percent of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). While this law is still in place for patients that need access to CBD under the age of 18, Amendment 2, Florida's Medical Marijuana Initiative, will continue the use of CBD for medical patients. The role of CBD is understood statewide, and this cannabinoid is appreciated for its medical benefits more so than THC for the initiative's qualifying conditions. Here's what we found out on Florida's low-THC law, and how the use of CBD will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical cannabis program.

4 Common Diseases CBD Has Been Shown to Treat

February 13, 2017

COMMON DISEASES CBD TREATS ALZHEIMER'S DISEASECommonly-known cannabis constituent Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with brain and muscles cells using the body's natural Endocannabinoid (EC) system. Receptors in the brain, striated, and skeletal muscle tissue bind CBD molecules, causing a reaction from the body. In the both the brain and muscle tissue, CBD has been shown to cause an anti-inflammatory response, making CBD a strong candidate as a treatment for a variety of health issues. These same receptors bind THC in the brain initiating, instead, a psychoactive reaction — this is the “high” experienced by marijuana users.

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.

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.

What is Hemp: An Introduction

November 4, 2016

What is Hemp?It shouldn't be surprising that much of what we know about human history is derived from the things we leave behind. Between fossils, decayed structures, and megalithic formations (think Stonehenge), the high cost of recovery efforts do little aid in filling the gaps of recorded history.
