Eve of Cannabis

How Did We Get Here If you go to Royal Seedbank, they offer over 700 different strains, but how did we get here? Astonishingly it all started with a solitary strain- the Eve of Cannabis, Hindu Kush. And its garden? Probably the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan and Pakistan.  As remote as this area wasContinue reading “Eve of Cannabis”

Terpenes Count

THC is THC. Meaning, the THC in Green Crush (Crack) is no different than the THC in Granddaddy Purple. So how is one Sativa and the other labeled an Indica?

Decarboxylation

Why eating raw cannabis is a waste.  You don’t need a chemistry degree to understand how to make cannabis useable. Don’t let the long word decarboxylation scare you off. No pun intended, put bluntly, cannabis is a plant that needs some cooking to be useable as anything other than a form of fiber, vitamins, andContinue reading “Decarboxylation”
