Even cannabis-related social media accounts are routinely targeted and deleted by social media platforms. Traditional advertising methods are just as challenging. Print publications also censor cannabis content and even securing cannabis-related billboards is frustrating. These restrictions and the censoring of content, contributes to the brutal lack of cannabis-related education for consumers. Accessing Accurate Consumer Education Is Challenging Right…

From using CBD to treat child seizures to using 1:1 ointments to treat joint pain caused by arthritis, cannabis is quickly establishing itself as a “Swiss army knife” of sorts.

A Century of Marijuana Slang and Propaganda

Early Marijuana Slang Terms Since jazz players in the 1920s would be arrested for smoking joints in the alleys behind clubs, eluding law enforcement meant using code names and slang for marijuana. Some of the more comical monikers include muggles, mooter, tea, goof-butts, giggle-smokes, joy-smokes, moccah, ace, bag of bones, dank, catnip, cabbage, babysitter, righteous bush, doobie, finger lid, loaf, mexi, black gunion, leaf, and Thai stick. But the most absurd term for marijuana has always been “narcotic.” Infamous Cannabis Propaganda in the United States 1. Smoking marijuana inflicts permanent damage on users Before the po-po became infatuated with marijuana – and by po-po we mean the police…

Being Creative with Marijuana

Creativity and weed are best friends. Pair good smoke with painting, drawing, or gardening, and you’ll feel yourself epically relax, zone out, and forget all the BS. In fact, a blast of creativity plus a phatty can feel as good as a foot massage after a marathon. But what makes creative thinking and smoking the ganja feel so right? Comedian George Carlin described imbibing as “opening a window” and “broadening horizons.” Writer Aldous Huxley noticed that marijuana opens up “the doors of perception,” sparking creativity and letting it flow. Serious science says the two enhance one another because weed wakes up the same part of the brain that’s…
