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.

3 Great Uses for Your Extra Weed

Nuggets of weed on a table

Nuggets of weed on a table

It’s a very good problem to have, having excess weed. Whether you’ve been growing your own weed or you have some raw flower still hanging around from a recent purchase from our cannabis dispensary in Long Beach, there are some ways you can get creative with using what is leftover.

So what can you do? Other than just rolling it and smoking it or storing it away for later, keep reading to check out our list of some unique ways to get the most out of your extra weed.

Bubble Hash / Ice Water Hash


If you are looking for a cheap, easy, and chemical-free way of transforming your extra weed, we highly recommend turning it into bubble hash. Sometimes dubbed as ‘ice water hash’, bubble hash is created by using extremely cold temperatures to remove trichomes from buds and plant material, which are harvested and collected to make hash.

Because of the way it melts and bubbles, it is called bubble hash, known for its meltability. Using a one to six star scale, bubble hash is graded on it’s refinement. In this case, six is the highest at ‘full melt’ quality.

In order to make even a small, potent amount of bubble hash, you’re going to need a lot of flower. Our recommendation is to begin with about an ounce, if not more. To create bubble hash, you need a small list of gear, some of which you may already have on hand.

  • Two 5-gallon buckets
  • Bubble bags
  • Ice
  • Tap water
  • Stirring stick

To begin the process, soak your bud in a 5 gallon bucket filled with ice water for at least 20 minutes. From there, mix it and stir it around, agitating the bud. Once that is done, pour everything into the second bucket, this one containing a bubble bag. 

If you don’t know what bubble bags are, they are a set of mesh bags. They are sold in varying degrees of fineness or microgrades. Once your ice water and planet material mix is poured into the set of bubble bags, pull them out one at a time to refine or further refine the trichome mixture

Rosin


For another great idea that is chemical-free and can be made at home, take a closer look at making rosin. Rosin is created by using both heat and pressure. By pressing buds between two heated plates, a hot oil will ooze out. That oil is called rosin.

A simple way of making rosin is by using parchment paper and a curling iron. Though make sure it isn’t the same curling iron you plan on using to style your hair, later because it is going to get a bit sticky! 

Or, you can always choose to invest in a rosin press. They can vary in cost, but most are around a few hundred dollars. These presses are often equipped with a device to help you pack flower into neat little pucks. Those pucks are what you then press.

Once you are done pressing, remove the wrung-out weed from the parchment paper then scrape off some rosin with a dab tool and load it up into your favorite dab rig.

Cannabutter


Are you an edibles lover? The holiday season is right around the corner, and baking is an especially fun holiday passtime. You can spice up your pumpkin pie or other favorite dish by adding in a bit of cannabutter. It will taste all the more delicious knowing it’s something you made yourself!

So what will you need to get started? The list is easy:

  • 7-10g weed
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of water
  • A cheesecloth

To begin, you will need to decarb (aka decarboxylate) your weed prior to simmering. To do this, heat it at a low temperature for around 30 minutes. This will work to activate the weed, changing it from THCA to THC, which is what will get you high. When you’re smoking, this process is done with the flame from your lighter. However, when you’re making cannabutter, your oven does the work.

Once you have decarbed your weed, simmer it in butter and water for a few hours. From there, strain it through your cheesecloth. Let it solidify and stand up before throwing it in your favorite baked good recipe. Remember, as an important rule of thumb when ingesting edibles: go slow! 

If you’re interested in making your own cannabis coconut oil, you would follow a similar process. Cook with it, add it to your favorite foods, or even use it as a topical – there are so many possibilities!

Tinctures


If you are looking to make a cannabis product that is discreet, fast-acting, and easy to use, take a closer look at tinctures. They do not have an odor and you can simply add a few drops under your tongue. While tinctures do take a little longer to make than the aforementioned methods, they will stretch and last you a long time.

To begin, start by soaking your flower in high-proof, ethanol-based alcohol. We recommend something like Everclear or moonshine. A good baseline is about an ounce of weed per 750mL bottle of alcohol. 

Just like we talked about in the cannabutter example previously, you will need to decarboxylate your weed first. Once that step is done, put it in a mason jar with alcohol for a few weeks. Remember to shake it at least once per day! Finally, strain it through a coffee filter and you’re all set.

5 Types of Cannabis Edibles for You to Enjoy

If you’re someone who not only enjoys food but also loves cannabis, but you haven’t had an edible, you’re missing out on the opportunity of combining the best of both worlds. Or maybe you’re new to the scene and you would love a guide on how to get started and what’s out there.

Well, look no further!

At From The Earth, our cannabis dispensary shop features a huge variety of amazing, edible products, and here’s how we suggest you get started. Not all edibles are created the same, and just like they vary in flavors and categories, they also fall into one of two classifications: Indica and Sativa.

 

Know the Difference

When purchasing edibles, it’s important to know which strain you’re buying from, as they bring about two different types of highs. Sativa strains are usually infused into edibles that are supposed to be refreshing and energizing, giving you the perfect boost for outdoor activities or giving you a lift of inspiration needed to complete a task.

If you’re after a more sedating high, geared toward creating a calming, relaxing environment, you’ll want to purchase something from the Indica strain. Consuming edibles from this category will help you sleep better and help you unwind. 

 

Varying Effects

Consuming edibles create a completely different high than smoking and vaporizing. If you’re trying them for the first time, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First of all, smoking and vaporizing cannabis creates an almost instantaneous high. However, this is not the case with edibles. Due to the edible having to move through the digestive tract, any effects will take 30 minutes to two hours to start to kick in. While it takes longer to process, it also lasts longer and is a more potent high. Time and intensity will vary depending on the dose, when you ate your last meal, tolerance level, and body chemistry. 

If you’re new to edibles or have never used a particular product before, it is best to start with too little to avoid overconsumption. While you can’t overdose from cannabis, you can consume too much and make yourself uncomfortably high. 

 

1. Gummies

If you enjoyed fruity candies as a kid, then gummies are the perfect choice for you! There are many products out there that feature delicious flavors like wild berry, pineapple punch, and sour watermelon. Typically, gummies are infused with all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp plants. 

One of our favorite Sativa products from Kiva Confections is their pineapple habanero gummy. Made with a touch of heat, this selection is great for a summer energy boost! 

For a relaxing Indica choice, grab a pack of Kanha’s strawberry gummies. This delicious treat is sure to leave you feeling calm and collected.

2. Chocolate 

Who doesn’t love chocolate or baked goods, like brownies? Virtually any food that contains butter, oil, milk, or even sugar or flour, can be turned into an edible. To satisfy your sweet tooth and to get the added benefit of a quality high, check out these next few products.

Grab a timeless classic in the form of a milk chocolate bar from Nug. Skip the ‘weedy’ flavor and enjoy the smooth, creamy caramel taste of this delicious bar. Broken up into squares to help aid with dosing, this treat is sure to be your next favorite.

Dark chocolate fans, don’t worry! There’s something for you, too. Papa & Barkley creates a delectable sea salt bar that is soy-free, vegan-friendly, and is designed with wellness in mind, aiding in relieving occasional pain and helping you feel relaxed. 

If you can’t make a trip to your local cannabis dispensary, no worries! Remember, we offer same-day delivery as well as curbside pickup

 

3. Mints

Get a taste of something refreshing by trying cannabis mints! Mints are usually very subtle, easy to carry, and can provide a relatively quick high. If you like to enjoy edibles low-key or without drawing a lot of attention, then you should definitely pick up a package of mints.  

Kiva offers several flavors of their Petra mints, including their spicy Saigon Cinnamon, juicy pineapple, or tart cherry. Whichever one you choose, we know you’re getting a great flavor that you can enjoy on the go while refreshing your breath. 

 

4. Tinctures

Tinctures are very versatile, as they can be ingested in a number of ways. Enjoy a tincture by adding a few drops sublingually, directly under the tongue. Or, brew your favorite tea and add a little to enhance your beverage. Either way you go, you’re bound to experience a quality high.

For those seeking a medium to high psychoactive reaction, we suggest checking out the 1:30 Releaf Tincture. This product is designed to help with acute pains, aches, sleep, and overall relaxation. Paired with a mug of chamomile tea, this will be sure to give you a quality night’s rest. 

 

5. Drinks

Other than teas, cannabis-infused drinks are certainly out there! It’s summertime, and we need something delicious and refreshing to beat the heat such as lemonades, juices, and yes, even hard seltzers. These are a great choice if you want something to quench your thirst and bring you a lasting high. We can’t always smoke wherever we are, but odds are good we can enjoy a beverage.

‘Krush’ dehydration with this mango drink from Headset. Roll up to the party with something fun to share, like these original lemon seltzers from Pabst Blue Ribbon. For a potent drink option, grab a bottle of Uncle Arnie’s iced tea lemonade – but drink wisely, as these effects will be felt within 15-30 minutes! 

 

Remember!

Getting high and experiencing cannabis isn’t just one-size-fits-all anymore. It’s okay if you’re not big into smoking or vaping, or if you’re simply looking to branch out. Stop by your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in store or to ask questions and get more information on various products. After all, our friendly staff is here to help! Just make sure you kick off your summer safely when enjoying a new edible product, and you’re sure to have a high time. 

Why It’s Important to Know the Difference Between CBD and THC

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on table

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on tableSince its widespread legalization, the rapidly growing industry of hemp and other cannabis products has raised continuous questions among consumers who plan on visiting a cannabis dispensary. As the market grows and expands, it is important to become educated, as there is still some confusion on the difference between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products, what they do, how they are used, how they are legally different, and what potential benefits they may have. 

CBD and THC are two natural compounds found in plants of the Cannabis genus. CBD can be extracted from hemp or cannabis, both of which come from the Cannabis sativa plant. In order to be recognized as federally legal, hemp must contain 0.3% of THC or less. CBD is non-intoxicating. It works naturally with our bodies by binding to receptors in our endocannabinoid system. Popular CBD products are sold in the forms of topicals, gummies, oils, extracts, flowers, and more. 

Gummies, such as the pomegranate gummies manufactured by From the Earth, are easy, chewable gummy tablets and can be used to provide relief for anxiety, depression, and pain.

Other products, such as the ReLeaf Balm, are a topical balm that can be applied to sore or overworked muscles and is great for providing relief from inflammation and stiffness.

The main psychoactive compound in cannabis is THC, which is responsible for producing the ‘high’ sensation when you consume cannabis. Our bodies absorb THC & CBD whether it is smoke, eaten, or applied as a topical to our skin. Cannabis legalization has opened the door to a growing list of products including oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, topicals, drinks, and more.

At From the Earth, you can buy a variety of THC products Nighttime Tablets are a sleep aid that can help provide a good night’s rest without the groggy, hangover feeling that some over-the-counter meds can cause. 

While THC and CBD, have a few things in common, they also have some staunch differences and knowing those are essential to being a responsible consumer. 

 

CBD vs. THC: The Chemical Makeup

Though CBD and THC differ in many ways, at their core, they have the same chemical structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.  slightly adjusting how these atoms are arranged has varying effects on the body. 

Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, which are molecules that help our internal functions run smoothly. Our endocannabinoid system is the bridge between body and mind, it’s what keeps our bodies in homeostasis. CBD and THC have very similar chemical makeups to our naturally occurring endocannabinoids, allowing them to interact with our cannabinoid receptors. When this interaction occurs, it triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemicals responsible for sending messages between cells, and also have an effect on pain reception, immune function, sleep, stress, and more. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Psychoactive Factors

Even though they share a similar chemical structure, both CBD and THC have very different psychoactive effects. CBD is classified as psychoactive, meaning  CBD is proven to help with issues like anxiety, depression, and seizures but it doesn’t produce the same ‘high’ experience that THC does.

In order to produce a high, the THC consumed will bind the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. However, CBD forms a very weak bond, if one ever forms at all, to these receptors. Without THC, unwanted psychoactive effects such as sedation or euphoria won’t happen. So in other words, without this bond, there is no high. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Legal Issues 

As the current situation in the United States stands, the legality of cannabis-related products is constantly changing and shifting.  36 states, 4 territories, and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis at varying degrees for adult and medicinal use. The 2018 farm bill legalized hemp-derived CBD, this means it cannot contain more than .3% THC. Although this bill does legalize hemp-derived CBD, any CBD that was derived from a cannabis plant is still deemed illegal under federal law. 

Before purchasing any CBD products, it is important to educate yourself on your state’s laws. Should you possess cannabis-related products when they’re illegal, you could face criminal or legal repercussions. 

Currently, 33 states and the District of Columbia have ruled medical cannabis with high levels of THC legal when prescribed by a licensed physician. Some states have taken it a step further and passed laws legalizing the recreational use of cannabis. To read up on the legality of these products as well as a cannabis dispensary in your state, check out this resource.

CBD vs.THC: Potential Benefits

Due in part to their similar chemical makeup, CBD and THC share similar medical benefits as well. Some of the various health conditions CBD helps with are listed below.

 

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Psychosis or mental disorders 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Nausea
  • Migraine
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 

In turn, THC helps with the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Muscle Spasticity 
  • Glaucoma 
  • Insomnia
  • Low appetite
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety 

As indicated by their lists, they help aid with many overlapping medical conditions. However, CBD doesn’t have the aftereffect of getting high.

 

CBD vs THC: Side Effects

The consumption of any sort of chemical has a side effect. THC and CBD are no different in this regard. However, what exactly these effects entail do vary between the two. CBD is well tolerated, even when used in high dosages. 

Potential side effects of THC:

  • increased heart rate
  • coordination problems
  • dry mouth
  • red eyes
  • slower reaction times
  • Impaired thinking or concentration
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia 

CBD side effects may include:

  • appetite changes
  • fatigue
  • weight loss
  • dizziness
  • Diarrhea

These side-effects are a direct result of the compound’s psychoactive properties. And while neither compound is fatal, excessive use of THC may have a connection to long-term psychiatric effects, especially in teens who consume the product in high amounts. 

 

Conclusion

Overall, THC and CBD infused products have designated medical benefits and are considered safe to use. But as with any drug, over-the-counter, or prescription, your medical history, and current medications should be taken into consideration prior to use. This is an important factor to ensure that you are using cannabis-based products as safely and effectively as possible. Before use, consult your doctor or physician to make sure you are using the correct and legal products.
