Herbal Teas

By now, you are surely aware of how wonderful cannabis is. Whether it is for health or recreational purposes, this plant has something to offer. With this kind of potential found in just a few plants, you might be thinking: how can cannabis get any better? Well, you can enhance its effects by combining it with other beneficial herbs!

Why Combine Herbs?

  • For added excitement – Nothing beats having something to look forward to and mixing marijuana with various herbs certainly elevates the excitement cannabis has to offer.
  • For added flavours, aromas and effects – Marijuana already are medically beneficial, but if you are looking for additional or enhanced benefits, tastes and smells, other herbs can certainly help.
  • To take advantage of what they offer – It is always better to use an organic and effective option, and these herbs offer a natural addition to treatments.

Now, onto the plants you can use with marijuana. There are a few plants that have amazing synergy with marijuana and here are some of them:

Holy Basil

Holy Basil Plant

Also referred to as tulsi, this herb is known for its various medicinal properties. From its flowers to extracts, holy basil delivers numerous health benefits such as treating bronchitis, nausea and vomiting, even eczema! With properties similar to those of cannabis, this plant is indeed a perfect partner for marijuana.

You can use tulsi oil along with cannabidiol oil for treating skin issues such as acne and pimple breakouts. Moreover, people who like making gastronomic delights like pasta will find mixing holy basil and hemp a great option. Instead of making pesto sauce purely from either cannabis or basil, why not combine these two amazing plants for maximum taste and effect?

Hops

Hops Plant

This plant is in the same family as cannabis so there’s no wonder these two go together. Commonly used to make beer, hops is used to treat anxiety, sleep issues and attention disorders. With the same uses as medical marijuana, some cannabis enthusiasts brew a mixture of hops and weed to make beer with a different kick.

Just keep in mind that it is safer to intake a regulated amount of alcohol and cannabis, so keep your consumption in moderation. If you prefer to puff your weed, you might want to mix hops with your CBD vape oil instead of smoking it directly as it is reported to be safer.

Damiana

Damiana FlowerKnown as a plant with a slight psychoactive property, damiana can be mixed with your regular joint. With Valentine’s Day coming up, smoking a damiana-laced spliff can improve your date night as it is commonly used as an aphrodisiac. Combined with the pleasure-enhancing and libido-elevating properties of weed, this herb can certainly improve your sex life. Aside from smoking a joint, you can also purchase damiana tea, which you can infuse with CBD oil, making a perfect beverage to top off your night.

Herbal Tea Leaves

Just like with damiana tea, you can mix cannabis with other herbal teas. Whether you like brewing your own cup of you have ready-made tea bags in your pantry, mixing in a few drops of cannabis oil or dried marijuana buds into the mix can elevate your normal cup. You can use herbs such as chamomile, peppermint and other similar dried leaves for a weed-infused cup.

Using the cannabis plant to its fullest does not only involve using its parts. You can also improve what this amazing plant has to offer by mixing it with various beneficial plants. By doing so, you are only accepting what nature provides and putting them to good use.

Cann Social Tonics Gains $5m in Funding

CBD Infused Drink

Los Angeles-based cannabis-infused drink producer, Cann Social Tonics, announced its successful acquisition of $5 million investment funding. The funding round was spearheaded by Imaginary and JM10, an early-stage investment firm and marijuana company, respectively.

Cann’s beverages include 4 milligrams of CBD and 2 milligrams of THC. Unlike beer and other alcoholic drinks, this market offering is geared towards people who want to enhance socialization without the hangover, notes Forbes.

In a statement, the drink is said to be “uniquely designed to be approachable even for someone who has never previously considered cannabis as a part of their social lives – and appealing to that consumer is what it takes for a product to break the ‘stoner’ stigma and cross over into the mainstream,” shares co-founder Luke Anderson.

As of writing, the continued success of Cann is astonishing, with the brand just having sold 150,000 of its beverages.

Both Anderson and fellow co-founder Jake Bullock shared that the initial public response toward their products is astounding, especially having sold out a couple of times. Despite their increasing popularity with target audiences, Tech Crunch reports that there are still regulatory and supply chain challenges that stand in the way.

JM10’s investment in the cannabis-infused company allows it to expand its strong cannabis portfolio, with the likes of Lord Jones in its ranks. Founding partner JM10 Gregory Thomaier said, “Cann is unique in that its flavor profiles, ingredient purity and smokeless format sets the brand apart not only within the cannabis space, but also the beverage industry as a whole. We feel beverages like Cann provide the perfect product for the cannabis-curious.”

Meanwhile, Forbes reports that Cann is Imaginary’s first foray into marijuana investment markets and opportunities. Prior to this cannabis-infused drink maker, Imaginary only reportedly invested in renowned direct to consumer brands, including Daily Harvest, Everlane, Glossier, Reformation, and Kim Kardashian-West’s Skims.

According to Forbes, the $5 million seed investment round is slated to boost the growth of Cann’s cannabis-infused social tonic throughout different parts of California. In addition, the business is expected to bring its offerings to other states this 2020, as well.

Cann Social Tonics also plans to use its funding toward growing its business in new legal markets. Moreover, the brand intends to intensify is production capacity, as well as investing in product development to meet the demands of its existing pool of clients and potential customers.

Cannabis Kitchen Essentials to Have This Holiday Season

Now that the holiday season is here, parties and gatherings may have started to fill your social events calendar. In fact, these get-togethers may already be finding their way to your refrigerator. Filled to the brim, your fridge may not just be the ones taking in more goods (and baggage) they can handle.

While social gatherings serve as a time for friends and family to catch up on one another, these may be more stressful for cooks and chefs who need to cater to everyone’s discerning palate. Thankfully, there are more cannabidiol-based goodies that help these hardworking individuals relax. Even their guests are more than welcome to partake of these cannabis kitchen essentials this holiday season.

Why Use Cannabidiol?

Studies show that cannabidiol or CBD has potent properties that help soothe inflammation and reduce pain. It can also treat insomnia, address stress and anxiety, as well as treat certain skin conditions.

Because of the numerous benefits attached to this creation, adding to any kitchen, yours included, would certainly be a game-changer. Apart from introducing you to a host of possibilities in the culinary realm, these could also help you relax and de-stress – even while you’re cooking a huge batch of food for your gathering.

Must-Have Cannabis Kitchen Essentials

CBD Oil for Just About Anything

What makes CBD oil so easy and attractive to use for just about anything and everything – yes, even sweets and baked goods. Because of its versatility, this ingredient makes for a good addition to all types of meals. From your healthy salad dressings for your appetizers to drizzling over your soups, this wonderful kitchen essential will bring an earthier flavor that will ground your dishes.

If you are adventurous enough, you may also use drops of CBD oil into your cocktails and other beverages.

Cannabutter for Baking, Sautéing, and Finishing Dishes

A complementary ingredient, cannabutter is equally versatile and useful as its CBD oil counterpart. You can use it to infuse your dishes and use it as a base for sautéing vegetables, baking and roasting food for a deeper flavor, or for adding something extra to any meal. Even using a pat of this cannabutter on your toast or your cacio e pepe dinner will make a world of difference. Trust us.

CBD Edibles for Snacking Woes

Cooking for guests can take a toll on anyone. After all, with many dishes to prepare throughout the occasion, you might find yourself slaving over the kitchen for the whole day. If this is the case, your energy levels may become depleted over time, leaving you hungry.

Thankfully, there are CBD gummies and edibles available on the market. Pop one (or two or three) into your mouth and allow its invigorating properties to bring you back to your element. If gummies are not your thing, you can also opt for the more traditional food products such as brownies and chocolates. Not to mention, these can also double as dessert for your visitors.

Cannabis Hand Wash for Rinsing

After taking on the day’s tasks and making everything from scratch, it is high time you wash the day’s grime with a relaxing and soothing cannabis-infused hand wash. This way, you can rest your tired hands and eliminate any unwanted smells. Malin+Goetz makes a heavenly scented cleansing gel that’s meant to hydrate your skin after a hard day’s work.

Conclusion

Not only does the show present subtle humor that only adults can understand, but it also features quirky misadventures that could leave anyone laughing out loud.

Following a non-stop, hysterical war between a greedy yet pitiful cat and a smart, always lucky mouse, Tom and Jerry is sure to take you into a world of unending rivalry and slapstick humor.

Although the two never really talked – except for the occasional singing, laughing, yelling, and “Aha!” – Tom and Jerry remain to be a classic masterpiece for people who love to experience a blend of pity and amusement.

  • CatDog

Another classic contender on our list is none other than Nickelodeon’s CatDog. Following the story of a conjoined cat and dog sibling, as they struggle to live a normal life, the show remarkably offers a good dose of humor and interesting oddness.

Combining Cat’s smart yet mostly selfish antics to Dog’s clumsiness and gullible nature, the show managed to display a hilarious and interesting plotline that could leave anyone in a seemingly ‘high’ state despite the pitiful state of the protagonists.

Set in a world where cats and dogs could be siblings, rats are blue, rabbits can be extremely authoritarian, and delinquent dogs roam around for trouble, CatDog promises a comical yet relatable story that is sure to leave you in tears for laughing out loud – with, of course, a little help from CBD!
