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.

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.

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.

There are multiple ways to determine whether there is marijuana in your system. The drug can be detected through blood, urine, hair, or saliva. When you smoke weed, the primary ingredient, THC, is metabolized and soaked into your body. Since the saliva test, unlike the others, focuses on THC content, it might suggest that marijuana has a comparatively short time span where it can be identified by using a saliva test.

The U.S. federal government continues to insist that marijuana is an unsafe, unhealthy, and dangerous illegal drug with zero medical worth with a high propensity for abuse. They still perpetuate this lie, despite the majority of states either considering or having already overturned its prohibition. The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration) lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug right along with heroin, cocaine, meth, LSD, and a host of other opiates, hallucinogens, and stimulants.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an integral part of what makes cannabis the experience we all know and love. While it doesn't have the psychoactive effects triggered by THC, it has myriad other uses that are appreciated by medical marijuana patients and casual cannabis users alike. CBD is known to ease symptoms of both physical and mental illness. It can protect against inflammation and ward off chronic pain, and it’s been known to help alleviate anxiety and depression. CBD may even be a therapeutic application for addiction, as it targets your brain's serotonin 1A receptors.
