Marijuana Candies

With the public becoming more aware of medical marijuana, it is not at all surprising to see just how the cannabis industry is thriving. Together with more accepting and lenient state laws, it cannot be denied that the cannabis industry has taken the world by storm. Aside from consuming marijuana in the traditional way, there are now more interesting and exciting methods of ingesting this plant.

In the industry, there are various CBD edibles designed to cater to a variety of individuals. Aside from the usual brownies, cookies, and drinks, perhaps one of the most in-demand cannabis edibles produced is called ‘marijuana candy.’ These come in the form of gummies, chocolates, and even suckers!

What is marijuana candy?

For those still navigating the field of cannabis, marijuana candy is a type of food item which has been infused with cannabidiol (CBD).

What is the ideal starting point when ingesting these food products?

According to the Marijuana Policy Project, the typical starting dosage for these edibles is 5 milligrams for new consumers, an amount that should be easily ingested, and 10 milligrams for users who have a low tolerance for these products. As these food products are infused with a certain concentration of marijuana oils, consumers should be mindful that overconsumption is possible.

To help you find your way in this industry, below are some guidelines you should bear in mind:

Do Research on CBD Oil

Know that consuming cannabis through these food items is radically different from smoking it or taking it in other forms. For one, it can give you a much higher hit compared to smoking. Edibles tend to hit the user at around the 90-minute mark, giving the individual a high for around three to four hours. By conducting thorough research, in advance, you will know what you’re in for and what to expect. Not to mention, you’ll know what dosage to start with and where you can purchase these marijuana candies.

Start Small Dosage of CBD or THC

If you are still unsure about edibles and what it can do for your body, be sure to start with a smaller dosage. If you have done your research, you’ll know that it is highly advisable to work out your dosage but, it’s always advisable, to start with a small dosage.

For example, consider consuming products that only have 5 to 10 milligrams of THC. Medicated gummy bears or candies tend to be packaged in bags which have a serving of between 10 and 25 pieces. These serving indications will give you a good idea of what you should consume and how long the effects can be expected to last. If you are not the average smoker or not an experienced user, you may want to start off with one piece.

Just remember to keep the package away from other similar-looking food items in your house. This way, you can avoid children and pets from accidentally snacking on your marijuana candy.

Be Patient

The waiting period can be the most frustrating part, but in just a short while, you can experience the benefits of these medicated candies. Unlike smoking marijuana, the ‘high’ that comes from consuming edibles can take a little longer. In fact, once ingested it could take anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours to take effect.  Just be patient.

Relax and Enjoy the Cannabis Experience

Once you start feeling the effects of the marijuana, be sure to relax and enjoy your experience in a safe space, together with friends and other like-minded individuals you can trust.

Now that you know a lot more about marijuana candy, it might just open your eyes to new beginnings. Aside from experiencing the medicinal and therapeutic properties, you will certainly enjoy eating these goodies too.

BevCanna Gains License, Follows Success of Cannabis Goods

BevCanna Gains License

BevCanna Enterprises Inc., a cannabis startup company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, was recently awarded the Health Canada Cannabis Research License. The license was awarded only days after the company’s initial success in launching its own line of cannabis beverages to the public.

This is the second license awarded to the company, with the first being awarded earlier in June 2019. Apart from the research licensing, the cannabis firm also attained the Industrial Hemp Cultivation License.

In the company’s press release, BevCanna mentions that the awarded research license allows the firm to proceed with their development and research processes, “such as SOP development, stability testing, sensory evaluation and quality assurance for house brands and white label clients.” The research will be spearheaded by chief commercialization officer of the company, Emma Andrews, alongside the Quality Assurance and Production Team of the company.

The company’s research license award is linked to their study, with research focusing on the “Stability and Homogeneity of Water Soluble Cannabinoid Infusions in Water Based Beverages.” The series of trials will focus on studying the brands launched under the company, namely Anarchist Mountain Beverages and Grüv Beverages.

According to Financial Post, the company’s line of Grüv Beverages focuses on providing the public with cannabis-infused iced tea drinks, with flavors such as ginger mint herbal iced tea and matcha green iced tea taking center stage. The drinks are laced with a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD to “provide consumers with a mild, yet effective cannabis experiences,” says Andrews. In total, a single serving of 375-ml of cannabis-infused iced tea contains 5 milligrams of THC and 5 milligrams of CBD.

Further testing and research studies will be conducted in the business’ HACCP-certified bottling facility located near Bridesville, British Columbia. The facility houses 40,000 square feet of land, boasting of its spring water aquifer.

Andrews finds the alkaline spring water aquifer essential to creating their line, as stated in the press release. In addition to their facility, Andrews notes that they “have unmatched assets and expertise… that will allow us to achieve a speed to market advantage.”

The facility will focus its efforts towards testing cannabinoid infusion equipment, as well as improving dosages as it eyes widespread expansion and distribution both in the country and in the United States. BevCanna is slated to enter the commercial market come 2020. However, the business intends to introduce its products to the Canadian market this October 2019.

CBD Honey Sticks: What Are These and Why You Should Buy It

CBD Honey Sticks

For years, people are using honey not just for food, but also to fight off infection, heal wounds and treat digestive issues. It is rich in plant chemicals that act as antioxidants, which protects the body from cell damage and free radicals. Now, imagine that this is mixed with cannabidiol, an active compound found in the marijuana plant. Aside from the health benefits, the taste will also improve your appetite and get you in a good mood.

Why Mix Honey with CBD?

Because of the Cannabidiol craze, some people are mixing this active compound with almost anything—coffee, skincare, juices, and even alcoholic drinks. The CBD honey sticks taste like normal honey but with a nice after effect of making a person feel calm, refreshed and relaxed. These straws are also great for people who need a little boost while on the road.

Basically, there are two varieties of CBD honey straws: the solid and liquid kind. The first one is like a hard candy that dissolves into a warm beverage. These are perfect for coffee or milk. On the other hand, the liquid variety is sealed in a tube, which is also applicable for mixing with beverages or sipping it right through.

Benefits of CBD Honey Sticks

Cannabidiol on its own provides a wealth of health benefits to the human body. Proven by science, this compound is beneficial for mental and physical aspects of the body as it is absorbed through the bloodstream and interacts with the endocannabinoid system.

  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Eases nausea
  • Help relieve anxiety and depression
  • Combats neurodegeneration disorders
  • Eases pain
  • Improve the quality of sleep

By incorporating the cannabidiol to your daily routine, your body can reap health benefits. On top of that, you can get a boost in the morning and at the same time, feel relaxed and avoid stress.

Measuring the Dose

Dosage is an integral part of consuming cannabidiol. If the strength is high, a person can feel a bit weird, especially first-time users. Maximum dosage is needed only if a person is using CBD for medical concerns, like suppressing seizure activity and pain management. However, low dosing is good for regular consumption.

With these, manufacturers already indicate the dosing of each stick, about 10mg. These are perfect as snacks and can be mixed with tea and coffee.

Best CBD Honey Sticks in the Market

Before you buy loads of this product, make sure that what you’re getting is worth the money.

South Africa is Now Serving Its First Cannabis Pizzas

Cannabis Pizza

Popular South African pizza franchise Col’Cacchio is working to give South Africans access to the country’s first ever “dagga pizza,” says Business Insider. The franchise is partnering up with a cannabis-focused company for its innovative and progressive endeavor.

Collaborating with africanpure, a leading CBD oil manufacturer, the restaurant offers two cannabidiol (CBD) infused pizzas. Named Green Goddess and Not-so-Plain Mary Jane, customers can enjoy the benefits offered by the plant at R 125 and R 140, respectively. Guests can also opt for a dash of CBD oil on other pizza varieties for R 25.

Col’Cacchio co-founder King Baranowska says that the restaurant is constantly in pursuit of innovations and development for the benefit of its customers. Baranowska also remarked that they were the first brand to offer gluten-free, low-calorie items in their menus. It was also the first to provide carb-conscious and vegan options for their customers.

Cannabis Pizzas and CBD Oil

Fin24 emphasized that the restaurant’s Cannabis pizzas will not contain any form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the hallucinogenic component of cannabis and is illegal in South Africa.

The offer for these CBD edibles are available since June 25, 2019. Customers can order these Cannabis pizzas in all Col’Cacchio branches except for the Windhoek and Halaal outlets.

Aside from Col’Cacchio, various food and beverages establishments all over South Africa are incorporating this ingredient in their menus after the country’s legalization of the cannabinoid CBD. Regulations still apply for the consumption of this substance.

According to the Department of Health, the maximum dose a consumer can intake every day is 20 mg. Moreover, products and their manufacturers should not claim to treat or cure medical conditions. For greater dosages, an endorsement from a medical professional is required.

Cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It is also known for its medicinal effects including pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory and anti-spastic attributes.

Four companies in South Africa were certified to distribute medical marijuana in April 2019. These products should come from the South African Health Products Authority (SAHPRA).

As part of the medical marijuana law in the country, Cape Town dedicated a plot of land in the Atlantis Special Economic Zone (SEZ). This lot is used as a cultivation and production ground for medicinal marijuana.

SAHPRA is the authoritative agency that gives permits to cultivate and grow the plant. It also issues export licenses to all concerned parties.
