Humulene is along the more prominent terpenes found in the cannabis plant, yet its use, availability, and effects on the human body are only beginning to be studied and, more importantly, collectively understood. As the cannabis industry picks up steam across the US, cannabis terpenes such as humulene are being sold as flavor enhancers and are sometimes even listed within product descriptions at your local weed dispensary, begging the question: does it truly affect your high as well?

You've figured out how to grow your own marijuana plants, you followed some best practices, and now it's time to harvest. You roll up your sleeves, take a deep breath'¦ and realize you're not totally sure what to do. Do you just pick a bud off and pop it into your favorite bowl? While that may be tempting, you'll need to invest a little more effort and dry your buds before you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. Drying cannabis is an integral step in the harvesting process and is the first stage of the curing process. After you've harvested your bud, drying it out helps it to smell better, reduces harshness when you smoke it, brings out its best flavor, and enhances the potency of the strain's effects.

Colorado recently passed the five-year mark. It's been five whole years since voters in the state opted to legalized marijuana use for those of us age 21 and up. Though recreational marijuana dispensaries did not open in Colorado till the beginning of 2014, the ballot measure, titled Amendment 64, had built in a formula for tax revenue deposition. That is, we knew before recreational sales revenues started pouring in where the tax revenue collected from those sales would be distributed in the state and, in at least one circumstance, exactly how much of those revenues would be spent.

After Nevada's recreational marijuana program went into effect, they not only experienced last-minute distribution issues, but also larger-than-expected sales, which resulted in a 200 percent increase in Nevada and Las Vegas marijuana prices in just one month, according to Forbes. Nevada's recreational marijuana market has struggled to keep up with the state's demand, which has led to dispensary owners struggling to keep consistent products on their shelves. Although Nevada's marijuana prices have significantly increased, they're not necessarily unreasonably expensive. We’ve put together this guide to give you a sense of how much weed costs in Sin City and where you can find awesome deals.

If you're new to the marijuana world and you’re looking for a place to start, keep in mind that there are several factors that you should be aware of before you try your first puff. On the other hand, if you've consumed marijuana before, but you have a low tolerance, you should also educate yourself and tread lightly. Marijuana is a powerful, beneficial, and helpful plant that can deliver all sorts of physical, mental, and psychological relief. However, if you use a marijuana strain that's too strong or doesn't suit your specific needs and wants, then the experience could be disappointing and/or upsetting. Therefore, it's crucial to be aware of the marijuana strain you'll use and the content of CBD and THC within that strain, and it’s important to understand what you’re looking to get out of using marijuana.

Does weed pair well with strenuous exercise, or does it make you sluggish and unable to get off the couch?

Cannabis is a miraculous medicine that's used by people who struggle with eating, keeping food down, and/or need help with stimulating their appetite. Most of us know that once our appetite is stimulated, the munchies occur, which often leads to fast-food visits, pizza deliveries, and raids through kitchen pantries and refrigerators. Although this seems like a good idea at the time, once the high wears off and you realize you’ve finished off a whole pizza and/or an entire box of cookies by yourself, feelings of guilt and regret can occur, and nobody wants to feel like that. So let’s take a look at some ideas for delicious, healthy, and filling munchies snacks that you should keep around for your next weed-smoking session.
