If you think that cannabis is only meant to be enjoyed while lounging at the beach or while hanging out under the summer sun, it’s high time to reconsider. This winter, don’t let pine needle garland and evergreen wreaths be the only greenery you bust out! The staff here at our weed dispensary in Long Beach have come up with the perfect list that features our favorite weed and winter activity pairings, and how you can enjoy both to the fullest.

Keep reading to learn more about how to make the most out of the colder weather!  

 

Snowboarding and Skiing

If you’re looking at hitting the slopes this winter, don’t just grit your teeth and bear through the inevitable soreness and joint pain that comes with this high-impact activity. After all, it’s supposed to be a fun time, and that’s hard to do if you’re focused on joint stiffness and aches! That’s why we suggest making the most of your ski trip by packing Papa and Barkley’s CBD Releaf Patch to your travel bag. 

This slow-release patch is discrete, easy to use, and offers pain relief through the transdermal delivery of full-spectrum cannabinoids. Prior to leaving the ski lodge, put this on any area of concern. This includes the inside of the wrists, biceps, shoulders, back, neck, or ankles. Since it is CBD dominant and non-intoxicating, you can wear it with confidence that you will have a clear head while coming down the mountain. 

Or another great choice is to stick it on once you’re back and cozy in your room. Enjoy a hot shower and then use this patch post-mountain for it’s anti-inflammatory properties. We know you’ll get a good night’s rest with it, too!

 

Sledding

Sledding is another wintertime activity staple. While it probably brings about fun childhood memories of bundling up and meandering out to the closest slope, if you’re hopping into the sled as an adult, we have a way to spice it up: Moxie’s Casper Kush.

Without a doubt, sledding is better with friends and so is getting high. With this live resin cartridge, you’re sure to have a great time. It is formulated from a single extract of THC concentrate and activated with cannabinoids and naturally derived terpenes. 

The best thing about vape pens are that they are discrete, portable, and simple to use, so you’ll have no issue stashing this product in your coat and enjoying it on the slopes. Or you can keep it in your luggage and puff, puff, pass once settled in back at your lodge.

 

Warming Up By the Fireplace

Are you having a campfire out on the deck or just simply curling up by the fireplace in your ski lodge? Either way, if you’re ready to relax and unwind, we know the perfect product to help you chill out, and that’s Cream of the Crop Gardens’ Marshmallow OG. While it sounds like it belongs in a s’more, we recommend rolling it into a joint or smoking it from your favorite piece of glass.

This flower is an indica dominant strain that boasts a lineage of Chem D x Triangle Kush x Jet Fuel Gelato. We know you’ll love partaking in this product after a day of hitting the slopes, as it will leave you feeling warm and relaxed in no time at all. 

Ice Skating 

Whether you stepped out onto the ice and looked like a regular Michelle Kwan, or you stumbled about like a newborn baby deer, you’re bound to be feeling the lingering effects of your time spent ice skating. However, you don’t have to suffer through the pain! Instead, add Care By Design’s 1:1 Pain Cream to your cart.

While it can’t ease the embarrassment brought on by on by too many wipeouts, it can help soothe any bumps and aches left behind. This pain cream is packed with full-spectrum cannabis as well as CBD, THC, and other minor cannabinoids, such as THCa and CBDa. Not only that, it also harnesses the natural healing elements of aloe vera, shea butter, and other botanical ingredients that can help to soothe the body and mind. 

Enjoy without worry, as when applied topically, this cream has no psychoactive effects, regardless of your THC tolerance. When visiting our weed dispensary in Long Beach, we know you will want to add this to your shopping list. 

 

Baking Cookies

Who doesn’t love good holiday treats? This time of year, cookies are all the craze, and making them yourself leaves them tasting all the sweeter! This isn’t your grandma’s chocolate chip cookie baking session, however, and whether you’re in the kitchen with family or friends, we know you will love The Outlitt’s Dragon Viper. 

Roll it up and smoke it or use it in cannabutter for your cookies, no matter what, the possibilities are endless with this cannabis product! This 1 oz jar packs a punch and will be the perfect addition to while whipping up snickerdoodles or making little gingerbread men. 

 

Decorating the Tree

There are few flavors that embody winter like peppermint does, which is why we’ve added Kiva Confections’ Peppermint Bark Chocolate bar to our lineup. This delicious treat pairs flawlessly with decking the halls. After all, what better way to decorate the tree than while high? 

Break out the tinsel and your favorite ornaments while enjoying a bite or two of this delicious product.

Celebrate Pride Month with These Products That Give Back!

Pride Flag waving in Downtown area

Pride Flag waving in Downtown area

June is Pride Month and is celebrated annually in honor of the Stonewall riots, which worked to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning Americans. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against those in the LGBTQ+ community. 

Pride Month means a lot to us here at From The Earth and we want a way to give back to the LGBTQ+ community! So we have taken the time to compile a list of products that focus on not just proudly sporting the rainbow flag, but also, are donating a portion of their proceeds to amazing charities and organizations that render aid to the LGBTQ+ community. 

 

Pride Month

FTE – Rainbow Sticker

To kick off this list, look no further than our website! Purchase a product featuring a rainbow sticker from our cannabis dispensary and we will donate 5% of the proceeds to the Trevor Project, which is an amazing organization that helps LGBTQ+ youth. The Trevor Project leads the nation in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention for young people under 25.    

 

CANN 

If you’re looking for a great option from our website, be sure to check out the Hi-Boy Cranberry Sage beverage. Bursting with flavor, it’s sweet, tart, and just a little bit savory. This refreshing drink would be a great go-to for any Pride celebration. It boasts 5.0 THC per can. 

 

PLUS Gummies

Not only are PLUS gummies delicious and pack 100mg of THC in each tin, they taste all the sweeter knowing that with your purchase, 10% proceeds also go directly to the San Francisco-based Transgender, Gender-variant, and Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP). Their featured Pride product includes their limited edition rainbow sherbert gummies. Cannabis-infused and sure to put you in the festive mood, be sure to grab a tin before they’re gone, as they are only available for a limited time!  

 

KIVA – Camino Gummies

Tropical Punch Camino is another great option if you’re on the prowl for a delicious gummy product that also focuses on giving back to the LGBTQ+ community. The lead developer spearheaded the project as a way to pay homage to her LGBTQ+ family as well as the vibrant and iconic drag queen community in San Francisco. 

Every element of the product was engineered to reflect being an ally of diversity, equality, and inclusion. From the color, to the flavor, to the shine of the gummy, even down to the locations portrayed on the packaging, Camino is there to celebrate all things Pride. Available for a limited time only, Kiva uses proceeds from these products to donate to three charities: GLBT Historical Society, Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

 

Kush Queen Bath Bombs

In an effort to celebrate the combined history and shared progress of the cannabis and LGBTQ+ community, Kush Queen has put together their 2021 Pride Edition CBD Bath Bomb. Without the incredible people who fought to overturn Proposition 215, our access to cannabis would be almost non-existent. Because of the community activism led by the LGBTQ+ community, California was able to adopt the first medical cannabis legislation in the US in 1996, which then opened the doors for AIDS patients and many others to have access to plant medicine. 

Our skin is our largest organ and is essential in absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. Not only that, but it faces the elements every day, acting as a protective shield for the rest of our bodies. So treat it to something nice with their limited edition bath bomb! Glow in the dark and packed with CBD and essential oils, discover unparalleled relief while you kick back and relax. Proceeds from Kush Queen Pride Products will be used to positively impact the lives of the LGBTQ+ community. Check out your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in stock! 

 

Recreate 

At Recreate, they are honored to give back to the LGBTQ+ community with each purchase. Their Proud Partners this year are two amazing organizations. One is Equality California which sets out to advance civil rights and social justice to institutions of power in California as well as across the United States. The other is One Colorado, which is the state’s leading advocacy organization dedicate to advancing equality for LGBTQ Coloradans and their families, lobbying the General Assembly, the executive branch, and local governments on important topics such as safe schools, transgender equality, relationship recognition, and LGBTQ+ health and human services. 

When you purchase one of these two great products from Recreate, one dollar from each purchase gets donated toward the aforementioned organizations. If you love a cannabis beverage, you need to check out their blueberry mint acai sparkling elixir. It’s a limited edition product but doesn’t make it limited in quality. With 2.5 mg of CBD and 2.5 mg of THC in each can, you’re sure to experience a refreshing beverage and an energized high, perfect for getting into the Pride spirit. 

Don’t forget to grab a package of mixed fruit gummies! These make the perfect addition to any Pride festivities, as they are invigorating and uplifting. Fast-acting and with 10mg of CBD and 10mg of THC in each pack, you’re definitely going to enjoy this delicious and easily portable treat. 

 

Rainbows Are So Much More

Sometimes, with Pride Month, marketing and branding can be a little deceptive. Who is really giving back to the community in need, and who is simply using the rainbow flag as a means to scoop up business from LGBTQ+ patrons? We hope this list has proven to be insightful and made you aware of some of the wonderful companies out there who are truly partnering to make a difference. 

This Pride Month, spark up, roll up, or drink up – we have a lot to celebrate! The work may not be done, but hopefully, with the proceeds given to all of these incredible organizations, we can continue to make headway into changing the lives of the LGBTQ+ community for the better.
