Sativa and Indica: Are there any pure strains out there?

March 15, 2017

Sativa and IndicaThe terms Cannabis Sativa L. and Cannabis Indica Lam. were created many years ago to identify the two species of the Cannabaceae family. Nowadays, these names go by the more familiar terms “Sativa” and “Indica.” After hundreds of years of breeding and blending these plants for potency, aroma, flavor, and cerebral effects, one question remains: Are there any more true Sativas or Indicas out there today?

Soon enough it'll be pretty cold and snowy, or at the very least, some icy rain will be coming over those mountains, which makes now a great time to consider the best medicinal (and of course, recreational) strains to help you get through the winter weather and everything that may come with it.

January 5, 2017

effect of terpenes - humuleneAs a species, we've been harvesting the flavors of plants — for wines, tinctures, medicines, and therapeutics — for thousands of years.

Are you Buying Counterfeit Strains?

October 26, 2016

Counterfeit StrainsAre you buying the strain you think you're buying? Odds are, the answer is probably not.

Sativa Strains of Marijuana

October 5, 2016

What Are the Effects of Marijuana?

September 26, 2016

What are the Effects of Marijuana? Growing up I heard about the effects of marijuana from teachers and policemen; people in hazy cars, cutting class, failing their responsibilities and aspirations, all while having a dry mouth, red eyes, and a laziness that would make a spoon say "you had one job".
