The history of cannabis…

Welcome to the revolution! The cultivation and use of the Marijuana plant dates all the way back to ancient China in 2727 BC. These historic civilizations used the plant in many different ways for its medicinal and herbal properties. It was not until 1970 that the use of cannabis was completely outlawed with the passage of the Controlled Substances Act.

When the act passed, cannabis was classified as a Schedule 1 Drug, the “most dangerous” of classifications. Colorado was the first state to legalize in January of 2014, beginning the revolution.

As of June, 2019 33 states have legalized the recreational or medical use of marijuana. Since then we have been able to discover more and more healing properties from the plant. The next step in the revolution is to fight for its reschedulization. This would allow for a full spectrum of research to be conducted on a governmental level.

Marijuana is an incredible plant that has the potential to enhance and even save the lives of those in need.

terpenes?

Have you ever had a budtender tell you to take a whiff of a strain? It is no secret that marijuana is a very fragrant plant. Commonly, having strong scents of lemon, blueberry, cheese, pine, or even fart-like aromas. Terpene content plays a big role in strain definition. Technically speaking, terpenes are organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants.

These distinct fragrances have more effect on the body than just its smell. Terpenes are also known for causing certain sensations upon ingestions. Depending on the compound, they can make you feel happy, relaxed, sleepy, energized. Some also hold anti-inflammatory properties.
