This Is The Future Of Cannabis. For Medicine, Nutrition And Pleasure.

One of these vape pens contains Blue Dream sativa cannabis oil, 91% THC, the other is Hindu Kush indica cannabis oil, 85% THC and the spare cartridge has the dregs of some New York City Diesel sativa, 85% THC. You can’t tell which is which to look at them but each has a distinctive flavour and effect.  They’re not completely odour free but almost.

Channel 4 Drugs Live. How To Cause Confusion About Cannabis.

What is this 'hash' that looks like weed and this 'skunk' that isn't cannabis? Channel 4's 'Drugs Live:Cannabis On Trial' played fast and loose with facts, terminology and ethical considerations. Cannabis (herbal) Cannabis (hash) To be fair, I greatly enjoyed the programme (well I would wouldn't I) and there was some fascinating science. Particularly about how the brain responds to music when you're high and about how CBD protects the...

Flowermate Vapormax V8 Vapouriser Review

I'm a newbie to the vape scene. Having given up tobacco just over six months ago, I've been resorting to an array of different pipes, all of which provide the thick, acrid smoke joint smokers are used to, albeit without the accustomed nicotine/carbon monoxide rush.

Flowermate Vapormax V5.0S Vapouriser Review

I like the Flowermate but like all vapourisers it's not quite as straightforward as that. I can quite understand why many people don't get on with them and particularly not these small, hand-held devices. Table-top or hand-held, they all require patience and practice before they produce an effective result. The Volcano defines what a cannabis vapouriser should be but at nearly £400.00 it's out of reach of most people. Just over a year...
