CBD Tincture For a Happy Family Danksgiving

So here it is almost Danksgiving. It’s the middle of the night here right now, and I’ve just finished making a special “emergency” batch of CBD tincture for Felicity.

A Lot of Controversy Over A Molecule Or Two

It’s been said, “The devil is in the details”. It’s true that it’s devilish work to get everything perfectly right, and I do try, but I don’t claim to be perfect. But still, it’s a worthy goal to be as correct as possible, when people are depending on what you write. So I often agonize

How To Make Old Hippie’s AVB Pot Pizza

I am very gratified that so many people love and appreciate my cannabis cooking recipes ( How To Blast Off with Nutella Firecrackers is currently closing in on There’s No Such Thing As Marijuana for the top all-time article here).

Blue Dream Encounter

Stoned agin! [8.3] I’ve mentioned that starting to use a new strain means you’re ingesting different cannabinoids at different levels. That also activates different receptors in your brain, generally ones you’re not used to. That means you have no tolerance buildup in those receptors. I think you see where I’m going with this. Just two

Ask Old Hippie: Should I Smoke An Indica Or Sativa?

Dear Old Hippie: Now that medical marijuana strains are finding their way to people in less-enlightened states, even back alley dealers are claiming their weed to be “genuine Super Sour Diesel Sufferin’ Succotash Lazy Hazy Kush” or whatever. WTF does any of this mean to someone who just wants to know how it will make

The 5 Biggest Myths About Medical Marijuana – Dangerous Drug – Day 5

You have to hand it to the U.S. Government. Without the money, might, and monotony of this monolith, it would have been impossible to suppress and distort the truth about cannabis – a plant used beneficially by humans for the last 5,000 to 10,000 years. But that’s in the past, because the truth — like a
