Best Fireplace Books To Read and CBD Products to Pair With Them

  • FOR THE SENTIMENTAL READER

What to read: The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

What CBD product to enjoy: CBD vape products

If you’re up for some nostalgic, heart-wrenching story to read this season, then F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 Jazz Age novel is the perfect book to check out. Recognized to be one of the most prominent classics from twentieth-century literature, The Great Gatsby magnificently captures the high and madness that comes with the jazz age – from the decadent parties, wild Jazz music, fabulous romances, too, at last, the disintegration of the American dream.

Written in rich literary brilliance, this classic modern story of the romance and wickedness of the Jazz Age is one of the perfect fireplace books to read as you inhale the earthy flavor of your high-quality CBD vape juice.

 

  • FOR THE ADVENTUROUS READER

What to read: Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes

What CBD product to enjoy: CBD gummies

Dubbed to be the first modern novel, Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote stands as a classic literary masterpiece that any reader must not dare miss.

In the story, Don Quixote, an aging nobleman, spends his days and nights reading chivalry novels. Driven mad by reading such romances, he dresses up in old shining armor, mounts his skinny old horse Rocinante, and leaves his village in search of glory.

Written in experimental form and rich with literary playfulness, Don Quixote comes as a heart-warming, mind-boggling, and epiphany-inducing masterpiece that captures the contradictions between free will and fate, idealism and materialism, life and death.

Combined with the soothing effects of CBD gummies, your reading time is sure to make your winter break even more precious and therapeutic.

 

  • FOR THE VISIONARY READER

What to read: Brave New World, Aldous Huxley

What CBD Product to Enjoy: CBD Oil

Want to set out into a deep, thought-provoking adventure by the fireplace this winter? If you’re the type who isn’t afraid to explore the evils of a seemingly satisfied and successful society just like the one we have, then Aldous Huxley’s 1932 dystopian novel, Brave New World, is the one you should pick out from the shelf this holiday.

Set in the year AF 632, Huxley’s novel bravely takes us into a highly scientific and compartmentalized future where life is pain-free but meaningless. Heavily influenced by George Orwell’s 1984, this classic sci-fi novel presents a nightmarish vision of a future society where children are created outside the womb, embryos are sorted and genetically-modified into different classes, and citizens are subjected under psychological manipulation and classical conditioning.

Dark, daring, and thought-provoking, Brave New World is the perfect match for your winter leisure time activity as you enjoy each drop of your premium CBD oil.

 

Surely, curling up by the fire with a book on your lap and a fine CBD product on your side is the best way to make the most out of your winter break.

With superb literary writing ready to be read and analyzed, combined with the therapeutic effects of some high-quality CBD items, your holiday season is sure to become the cherry on top that will complete a wonderful 2019.

Rey Rey Rodriguez: Entrepreneur, Visual Artist and Cannabis Advocate

An interview with The Mind of Rey Rey® founder, Rey Rey Rodriguez.

When did you first try cannabis?

I was 13 years old the first time I tried cannabis.  I smoked socially throughout high school, stopped around the age of 19, and then picked it back up in my late 20’s.

What inspired you to smoke?

I always had an admiration for the plant.  Everyone I idolized as a kid, and the people I admire today are all considered potheads. I grew up watching Cheech & Chong’s films, and all my favorite musicians from the 60s till today, as well as my favorite athletes, public figures, and celebrities (Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Mike Tyson, Dave Chappelle, Michael Phelps, Cypress Hill, Snoop, Dre, Biggie, Pac, Nick & Nate Diaz, Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, Eddie Bravo and more) were / are all advocates of the herb.

Two of my favorite podcasts are B Real’s “Smokebox” and Mike Tyson’s “Hotboxin’,” where the hosts interview their guests while smoking.  One of my favorite events to watch is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition called, “High Rollerz,” where the competitors smoke before they compete at the highest level.

No one can say that cannabis is a lazy or unintelligent person’s drug anymore.

What about cannabis do you like or enjoy?

I smoke / vape both Sativa and Indica, which affect me in two completely different ways.

Sativa clears my mind, allowing me to be present and to focus on whatever the current task at hand is.  Whether I’m working, reading, studying, practicing, or doing something else that requires concentration, it allows me to be more present and to dissect, observe, and problem solve better. 

Rey Rey Rodriguez working after smoking Sativa

The intensity in which I interpret information heightens, and I find myself, breaking down art, music, movies, body movement, meditation and even memories on a deeper level. My imagination and ideas are more vivid. For me, sativa is good for any physical or mental activity.

I use indica for rest, relaxation, to calm the body and mind when it’s time to wind down, and to fall asleep.  This one helps clear my mind from any worry and stress.  It zones me out, I become one with my mattress and pillow, making my body feel weightless, and filling me with a cooling effect from the darkness as I lay there with my eyes closed.  Indica is perfect when you’re ready to knock out.

Rey Rey Rodriguez napping after smoking indica

What would you say to those that still think cannabis is a dangerous drug?

I don’t think it’s for everyone but, the days of “Reefer Madness” and everyone assuming that pot will make us dumb, slow, brain dead, or will lead us to crack and heroin are behind us.  Cannabis is legal throughout the US in most states either for recreational or medicinal purposes.  Cancer, mental health, athletic recovery, brain trauma, and many other conditions are being treated with cannabis.  I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, OCD, and ADHD.  I’m not sure if that doctor diagnosed me correctly, but I do know that his recommendation for all of those conditions was marijuana. 

Is there anything you’d recommend to those wanting to learn more about cannabis?

Anyone can do a Google search for most questions.  I like to refer those interested in current information on all things cannabis to visit High Times Magazine’s website.  And anyone that would like to learn a bit of the plant’s history and about the negative propaganda that led to it becoming illegal, should read Jack Herer’s book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.”

Here’s How to Use CBD Safely Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Here’s How to Use CBD Safely Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019, shortly called COVID-19, has caused an unprecedented and dramatic impact on communities all over the world – including CBD enthusiasts. As governments from different states and countries impose home quarantine and social distancing policies, it is only natural that users of this popular compound are facing drastic changes in their ways of consumption in order to keep up with the protocols.

If you’re one among these users, knowing what the dos and don’ts are when using CBD products like portable vaporizers amid a pandemic is necessary to ensure a safe and fun CBD experience. To help you achieve that, we have prepared a list of the things you need to keep in mind while threats of the deadly disease is still a worldwide problem.

Read on.

Things to Do – How to Use CBD Safely

Buy Only from Reputable Dispensaries

As the health crisis worsens, supplies for resources are also expected to shrink, including CBD. Since there is an ongoing protocol for everyone to stay at home and practice social distancing, some suppliers of cannabidiol are expected to stop their operations. As a result, consumers are to be left with limited store choices, which fraudsters can take advantage for their personal gains.

In times like this, when transactions are primarily done online, it’s best to ensure that the one you’re seeking supply of CBD for is a legit and reliable dispensary.

To prevent the risk of falling victim to criminals, it’s best to limit your options to reputable stores only. Before heading straight into the checkout and providing your credit card information, make a habit of conducting a background check on the site you’re visiting first. Once you’ve verified that the details provided are true and that the store actually operates as a legal supplier, it is then that you can only start picking the products you want to get from the site.

Consider How Much THC the Product Contains

While it’s a popular belief that CBD works best with a little THC, it’s always a safe bet to get a product that only contains as low as the 0.3 percent cutoff required for CBD products. That is exactly what LA Fresh CBD touts in its products.

Primarily, this is because THC works as a psychoactive component, which means taking a dose of it can drive you straight into the cloud nine, or what people call the marijuana “high.” Since the COVID-19 pandemic has left the economy almost immobile, finding yourself in an unpleasant and dangerous level of head high will leave you helpless, as people are expected to stay on their homes, establishments are normally closed, and medical professionals are busy responding to the needs of the swelling number of infected patients.

Don’t Share

Sure, while cannabis enthusiasts live by a communal way of life, now’s not the time to remain faithful to that culture. Essentially, since the novel coronavirus has been proven to be transmittable via respiratory droplets and contact routes, sharing your vaping device with your favorite pals is a big no-no.

Aside from this, although it’s a known fact that CBD oils, gummies, and other related products are more satisfying when shared in groups, practicing social distancing of at least 1 meter or 3 feet is still more important to secure your safety amid the outbreak.

CBD Oil, Cannabis Oil

The Bottom Line

In this time of medical and economic upheaval, aligning your every action to what’s proper and necessary should be everyone’s top priority. Sure, while you’re still free to enjoy your favorite CBD products, practicing these necessary measures come as a compulsory action from anyone in the community.
