4 Tips To Help You Make The Most Of Your CBD

CBD is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. Here are some ways to help improve your experience with the compound.

It’s understatement to say that CBD is a fast growing industry. Despite its popularity and widespread use, CBD is a compound that varies in effect depending on the person.

Virginia’s Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Went Into Effect This Week—What Does That Mean and What’s Next?

As we previously wrote about, Virginia enacted a law decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana earlier this year. Unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of misconceptions about what that law—which became effective this week—actually means. Despite the label of a “decriminalization” law, it does not actually make possession of marijuana legal; rather, it changes possession of up to an ounce from a crime subject to arrest, jail time, and significant fines, to a civil offense that does not allow for arrest and results in a fine of only $25. The new law also removes the escalating penalties that used to be in place for multiple violations. Growing and distributing marijuana remain crimes subject to arrest and jail or prison time.

Has legal cannabis increased junk food sales?

“Wellness” is the latest buzzword in town when it comes to the cannabis-munchie movement. The cannabis community wants America to know, or at least it wants it to think, that instead of scarfing down fast food and Little Debbies whenever it comes time to tame the ravenous appetite that often comes with getting high, they are grabbing fruits and vegetables instead. It’s all part of the new-and-improved stoner image 2.0. But are marijuana users really opting for healthier food choices when those high hunger pangs set in? Maybe, but then again, maybe not.

If we look at some of the latest research on the matter, it is easy to see that all of this talk about wellness, healthier munchies and the brand-spanking new pulse of the lifted lifestyle might not be real.
