Strain Review: Cindy 99

Strains
Cindy 99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is known for a high THC count, dense nug structure, and sweet potent smell.

Most readers are familiar with the current clash between individual states that have voted to allow recreational sale of marijuana to anyone over 21, the even greater amount of states that allow some form of medical marijuana, and the federal laws that continue to classify the cannabis plant in the same category as heroin. Senator Sanders, who describes himself as a Democratic Socialist that has proposed a variety of measures during his long and distinguished career in politics, has gained national attention in the past year for a campaign for President that has been absent of many of the…

Harlequin and the Benefits of CBD

Strains
CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid that has been proven to help with managing chronic pain, reducing inflammation, and work many other wonders (those who haven’t seen it should watch this video, one of many about the miracle power of CBD for those using it to combat the effects of epilepsy and other neurological disorders:) While just about anyone who is familiar with how marijuana works has heard of THC as the most active of the cannabinoids, CBD has only in the last few years gotten more attention thanks to several high profile reports. THC is the compound most responsible for the “head” high that most people seek; it is CBD that tends to do the most amount of work towards helping with pain relief and relaxation. The entire…
