Marijuana Tinctures: Your Complete Guide

Are you ready for a taste of the least controversial method of consuming cannabis ever? Try a tincture. “Why would I want to do that,” you ask? Because tinctures have been described as the most underrated of all the pot products.

They’re described as such because there aren’t as many fun — and potentially punishable — reefer rituals associated with their use. But that doesn’t mean that they’re somehow second-rate.

Tinctures are arguably underutilized compared to raw flowers, joints , blunts , bongs , edibles , and dabs even though they work just as well…or sometimes even better.

Yep, you read that right. For many people, tinctures often work better than every other method of cannabis consumption, including cream , pills , gummies , and dissolvable strips . It really depends on what you need from your marijuana and how you prefer to take it.

In this article, the experts at Honest Marijuana tell you everything you need to know about marijuana tinctures. Along the way, we’ll discuss:

  • A brief history of the marijuana tincture
  • The basic science of tinctures
  • The benefits of marijuana tincture
  • The side effects of marijuana tincture
  • How to take a marijuana tincture
  • The economics of marijuana tincture
  • How to make a marijuana tincture

We’ll also share three different tried-and-true marijuana tincture recipes for you to experiment with at home. Before we get to that, though, let’s delve briefly into the history of marijuana tinctures.

Marijuana Tincture Tales

In spite of how novel they may seem to so many cannabis consumers, tinctures are really nothing new. In fact, tincture was the primary form of cannabis medicine until it was banned in 1937 .

Source: AntiqueCannabisBook.com

You may not have heard about marijuana tinctures yet because an eyedropper full of medicine just doesn’t have the same stigma as edibles or dabbing .

You don’t need a creme brulee blowtorch in order to medicate with a tincture, which is why tinctures don’t have any derogatory mainstream media monikers like “the crack of cannabis.” You’re also much less likely to overdose or “overdowd” on a cannabis tincture than you are with a marijuana edible for reasons we’ll explain later in this post.

And lest you wonder what “overdowd” means, it’s a slang portmanteau of the words “over” (as in overdose) and “dowd” (the last name of journalist Maureen Dowd). Some years ago, while writing a piece on the nascent marijuana industry in Colorado, Ms. Dowd consumed too much of a cannabis-infused candy bar — despite prior warnings — and went on a really bad trip.

“I became convinced that I had died and no one was telling me,” Ms. Dowd wrote in her column for the New York Times. This event earned her the dubious honor of having a semi-derogatory, completely-mocking word “named” after her. But enough of the history lesson. Let’s get back to the topic at hand.

Tinctures have been described as the moonshine of marijuana because of how they are made. However, making marijuana tincture takes up much less space and is significantly less likely to cause an explosion than a traditional moonshine still.

Source: wrcbtv.com

Making tinctures is much less dangerous (and therefore less controversial) than making cannabis concentrates with butane, for example. Your chances of creating an explosion that will destroy your entire house are non-existent with most tincture making.

Now that you know a few facts about marijuana tinctures, let’s investigate the science behind what makes a tincture a tincture.

The Basic Science Of Tinctures

We’re not going to get too involved in the science of tinctures, but we will touch on a few key scientific facts that will help you understand tinctures better.

Chemical Composition

A tincture is most often an alcoholic extract of plant material (although animal material can also be used) with an ethanol percentage of between 25 and 60%. This equates to a solution that is between 50 and 120 proof, although sometimes the alcohol concentration can get as high as 90% (180 proof) in some tinctures.

Alcohol (ethanol) is the most common solvent because it’s effective at breaking down both acidic and basic components of the plant matter. In the case of a cannabis tincture, that means that more of the good-for-your cannabinoids will wind up in your little dropper bottle.

Other solvents like vinegar and glycerin (a.k.a. glycerol) can be used to create a tincture for internal consumption, but they’re not as effective at extracting all the chemicals from the original plant matter.

Production

The process of making a tincture is very much like dissolving sugar in water or making Kool-Aid. The solids (the sugar or the Kool-Aid mix) break down and liquefy in the water, transferring their chemical makeup (sweetness) into the resultant solution.

The same thing happens when making a tincture — only the ingredients change. The alcohol dissolves the plant matter and all the chemicals it contains (trichomes, cannabinoids, oils, terpenes, and others). Those chemicals are then suspended in a solution (much like Kool-Aid mix in water) that can be ingested or administered under the tongue.

The Benefits Of Marijuana Tincture

Marijuana tinctures offer a long list of benefits (many of which we’ll discuss throughout this article). To give you an idea just how great marijuana tincture is, here are a few of the benefits you can enjoy whether you take a THC tincture for pleasure or a CBD tincture to relieve pain:

  • You feel the effects quickly
  • You can easily control the amount of tincture you take
  • Marijuana tinctures are discreet (meaning you don’t have to worry about standing out)
  • Tinctures are safe
  • Tinctures have a long shelf life when stored properly

Obviously, you would only use a THC tincture to achieve a psychoactive high (although THC does have some pain-fighting properties). But if you use a CBD tincture, the benefits multiply. That’s because a CBD tincture can be used to treat:

  • Low appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar)
  • Inflammation
  • Psoriasis
  • Chronic pain
  • Artery blockage
  • Psychosis
  • Bacterial growth
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer cell growth
  • Convulsions
  • Bone degeneration
  • Seizures
  • Muscle spasms

Couple the above benefits with the safe, fast-acting, easy-to-dose nature of the tincture itself, and you’ve got a potent recipe for medical relief of the toughest symptoms.

Does Marijuana Tincture Cause Side Effects?

The short answer is: It depends. If you’re taking a THC tincture, then, yes, you’re going to get the same side effects you would get if you smoked a doobie (paranoia, munchies, etc.).

If you’re taking a CBD tincture, the side effects are less obvious. CBD does cause dry mouth, but many feel that it’s a small price to pay for all the medical benefits that the cannabinoid has to offer.

The only other side effect of note is that CBD decreases your liver’s ability to process other drugs. That’s not a problem if you replace one medication with a CBD medication.

But if you take a CBD medication and something like a heart medication, the CBD will interfere with the effectiveness of the heart medication. That’s bad. Because of the potential interactions, always consult a doctor adding CBD to your daily routine.

Taking Marijuana Tinctures

One of the main benefits of a tincture is that it’s very easy to take. Drops of tincture solution are squeezed out through an eyedropper syringe under your tongue. There, the solution is left to be absorbed (not swallowed) into your bloodstream through a process called osmosis.

Osmosis occurs when molecules of a solvent (the ethanol and all the cannabis chemical it contains) pass through a semipermeable membrane (the tissue under your tongue) from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one on the other side in order to equalize the concentrations on both sides of the membrane.

Source: Silver-Health.co.uk

The Benefits Of Sublingual Administration

The major advantage of the sublingual administration method is that the medicine is rapidly absorbed through the sublingual artery, your body’s main blood supply to your tongue. This artery arises from the external carotid artery, which, in turn, is close to the internal carotid artery. This allows the medicine to quickly reach your brain.

Additionally, the tincture doesn’t come in contact with the acids in your stomach like other edibles do. That fact alone serves to keep many of the beneficial chemicals in your cannabis tincture more complete and readily available for use in your body.

Sublingual absorption effectively removes a step — digestion — that can have slight but destructive consequences to the chemical makeup of the cannabis you put into your body.

Are Marijuana Tinctures Right For You?

The process of osmosis through the sublingual artery is ideal for patients suffering from pain due to gastrointestinal difficulties such as ulcers, hyperactive gut, coeliac disease, and other digestion issues that might make an edible less palatable.

Cannabis smoke is in no way conclusively linked to any kind of cancer, but sublingual ingestion of cannabis tinctures is, of course, ideal for anyone who may be concerned about the perceived health risks of inhaling smoke of any kind into their lungs.

Tinctures are also ideal for anyone who may be too sick, too old, or too young (like Charlotte Figi was) to properly smoke or even vaporize cannabis. Tinctures allow people of all ages to realize the beneficial health effects that the cannabis plant has to offer.

Tinctures are also well-regarded by seasoned stoners as an effective recreational high that you can stealthily enjoy in most social situations without drawing the same attention to yourself that you would if you lit a massive blunt in the middle of a crowd.

It’s a proven fact that the smell of cannabis smoke can, and often will, draw a lot of attention. And depending on where you are, that could be a good thing or a bad thing.

Tinctures draw none of this attention. All it takes is two or three drops under your tongue — a process that takes less than 20 seconds — to achieve much the same high as smoking a joint. No muss. No fuss. No telltale smell. Just the psychoactive high or the medicinal benefits you crave.

Source: BangorDailyNews.com

When Will You Feel The Effects?

The onset of the euphoric or medicinal effects of a tincture will kick in just a little bit slower than they would if you were smoking, but much faster than they would from an edible of the same strain of weed. You’ll feel the effects of two to three drops under your tongue within about 15 minutes.

This is why tinctures are infinitely superior to edibles in terms of the process of trial and error by which you determine the right amount of cannabis that your unique endocannabinoid system requires in order to feel optimal.

The more scientific name for this “try-and-see” practice is titration . You’ll often hear this term bandied around by those in the know because it’s easier to say than, “the process of trial and error by which you determine the right amount of cannabis that your unique endocannabinoid system requires in order to feel optimal.”

See what we mean? Why say 26 words when you can say just one and mean the same thing? Start using the word titration now so you at least sound like you know what you’re talking about.

Source: YouTube.com

To Swallow Or Not To Swallow?

When administering these drops of canna-goodness, it’s important to remember NOT to swallow your tincture if you want the full benefits of sublingual absorption. You can , of course, swallow your tincture, or even add it to tea , juice or food like many patients do. Nothing bad will happen.

However, the delta-9-THC in your tincture will transform into 11-Hydroxy-THC when it passes through the liver of your gastrointestinal tract. And depending on your metabolism, this can take up to two hours or more to occur.

That means that you’ll have to wait at least two hours to feel the effects. On top of that, they might be slightly different because of the presence of 11-Hydroxy-THC.

According to The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), ingested 11-Hydroxy-THC can be felt up to four to five times stronger than inhaled Delta-9-THC. But, according to Jay R. Cavanaugh, Ph.D., it can take four to 10 times as much oral cannabis in order to feel the same effects.

Source: patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com

So again, remember not to swallow or the tincture will most likely take much longer to be effective. Just let the tincture solution dissolve under your tongue for about 30 seconds.

It’s also important to remember that you are also consuming alcohol — albeit a tiny amount — when you administer a tincture. In addition to that alcohol, your tincture will likely contain about 60% THC . That’s a lot!

The combination of alcohol and THC can pack a hefty punch, so start slow with your tincture titration. Get a feel for the potency of your medication and then gradually increase your dosage.

Recommended Dosing

We suggest starting with two or three drops at a time. Err on the side of caution and start with two drops (or less) if you’re new to cannabis consumption. After you administer your drops, wait at least an hour and a half before consuming more.

This gives the chemicals in the tincture time to spread throughout your body and gives your body time to fully process the cannabinoids.

After an hour and a half, you should know for sure how the amount of tincture you took will impact your body and mind. Until you gain some experience with tincture titration, we recommend waiting another hour and a half before trying another does.

This will give your body time to flush its system so you’re not stacking new THC (or CBD) on top of old THC.

The Economics Of Marijuana Tinctures

Tinctures are very economical . A small bottle of about 100 drops of marijuana tincture typically costs $20. If you take two drops at a time, that equates to 50 doses. At three drops, the total doses goes down to about 33.

That said, for the price you pay and the total amount of tincture you can squeeze out of the bottle, you’ll only be paying $0.40 to $0.60 per dose.

That’s awesome when you consider that your average, run-of-the-mill joint costs between $3.50 and $5.00. Plus, tinctures can be made at home, and you can make fairly large batches on a relatively small budget if you learn the basics of homemade brewing.

A Bit About Ingredients

As mentioned, you can make marijuana tinctures out of grain alcohol or glycerin, but high-proof alcohol like Everclear is the most common solvent and is the easiest to use.

Tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC ) exists as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) until it is decarboxylated, usually with heat. The nice thing about the extraction process is that the alcohol bath dissolves the THCA, decarboxylates it into THC , and preserves the resultant material so that it won’t spoil. Alcohol does all three of these things at the same time…all without heat.

So now that we’ve discussed the basic science behind the tincture and we’ve seen how easy they are to take and to make, let’s get specific with some easy, do-it-yourself recipes for making delicious cannabis-infused tinctures.

How To Make Marijuana Tincture

In this section, we’ll focus on the three basic methods for making marijuana tincture:

  • Cold
  • Warm
  • Hot (a.k.a. Green Dragon)

So grab some ganja and a bottle of your favorite high-proof alcohol and let’s get started!

The Cold Method

The cold method is the easiest way to brew marijuana tinctures because it doesn’t involve any cooking. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and set it aside to brew. Here’s how to do it.

First, simply break your cannabis up into some smaller pieces and place it in a glass mason jar. You can use as much or as little marijuana as you like to strain into your tincture. Just make sure that the bud you use is dry. Fresh, moist weed just doesn’t make for good tinctures.

The next step is to pour in enough ethyl alcohol to keep the plant material covered. We suggest Everclear, but you can use other high-proof alcohols if you prefer. You can expect to use approximately one gram of marijuana per one fluid ounce of ethyl alcohol. That said, the weed-to-alcohol ratio doesn’t have to be exact. Just make sure the marijuana is covered.

After you’ve mixed the ingredients in a jar, screw the lid on, shake it vigorously for a minute or two, then store the concoction in your freezer. The jar should stay there for up to five days.

Don’t worry, the jar won’t break or shatter due to the expansion that occurs when liquids solidify. Alcohol has a much lower freezing point than water and will remain in the liquid state throughout this process.

Once or twice a day for those five days, take the jar out of the freezer and give it a good shake. Over time, you’ll see the plant matter start to dissolve.

After roughly five days of storage in the freezer and multiple shakes every day, you’ve reached the end of the process. Now just strain the tincture through a cheesecloth, metal tea strainer, or silk screen into a bowl. Dispose of the leftover solid plant material, and pour the liquid tincture into a small, dark dropper bottle or two. It really is that simple!

The Warm Method

The warm or traditional method of making tinctures is identical to the cold method but without the freezer. Mix the ingredients in a mason jar the same as you did in the cold method. Then just leave the mason jar filled with weed and alcohol in a cool, dry place out of the sun for 30 to 60 days.

After those 30 to 60 days have elapsed, separate the solid material from the liquid by straining and then distribute the tincture into dropper bottles. Yes, this method does take substantially longer than the cold method and the hot method, but it doesn’t require any interaction on your part after the jar has been sealed. The saying, “Make on the new moon; strain on the full moon,” is why some people call tinctures the moonshine of marijuana.

If you choose this method, we suggest starting a new batch every two to four weeks. Depending on how much you make at one time, staggering the brew times will ensure that you have one tincture approaching readiness while you consume the other. That way, you’re never without enough tincture to get you through the month.

The Hot Method

The hot method, or Green Dragon method, is the quickest way to whip up a batch of cannabis tincture. It does require a bit of extra equipment and constant vigilance (so you don’t set the alcohol on fire), but you’ll reduce the brew time considerably.

To begin, chop your cannabis flower up as finely as you can. Place it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 325°F for about five minutes, or until your entire home begins to smell like weed. Mix your baked bud with high proof alcohol in a mason jar just like you did in the cold and warm methods.

Place the opened mason jar in a pan and add about one inch of water around the mason jar. Don’t put any water in the mason jar or you’ll ruin your tincture. Bring the water to a boil and then simmer the uncovered mason jar until the temp reaches 165°F. Obviously, then, you’ll need a candy or cooking thermometer for this method.

The alcohol/weed mixture shouldn’t boil at 165°F, so you don’t have to worry about that. If the alcohol does boil, the temperature is too high. Just turn down the heat of the water bath and continue.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to keep the kitchen fan on to remove any combustible alcohol fumes. At the very least, make sure that you are in a well-ventilated area so those fumes don’t collect and ignite.

When your brew has reached 165°F, remove the jar from the water bath using pot holders (it will be hot!), and set it aside to cool. When the jar is cool enough to handle with your bare hands, strain the tincture into a new bowl to separate the leftover plant matter from the liquid. Let the liquid cool some more and then distribute it into dropper bottles.

You can also invest in a custom Magical Butter cannabis processor to make hot-method tinctures. Simply place the weed and alcohol in the Magical Butter machine, push the tincture button, and your tincture will be ready to strain with a custom Magical Butter bag in 4 hours. This removes the danger of combustion and the constant vigilance but significantly lengthens the brew time.

Lastly, you can combine 5.5 grams of baked, decarboxylated cannabis with 2 ounces of high USP Food-grade glycerine into a sealable mason jar and then let it cook on top of a washcloth in a few inches of water in a crockpot on the low setting for 18-24 hours.

Let the mixture cool for about 20 minutes, then strain over a cheesecloth and use your dropper to transfer over to a tincture bottle.

Taking All The Tincture In

Tinctures were an effective time-honored weed tradition in this country and across the globe long before prohibition made it harder for us to get our medicine. They’re making a comeback in the modern cannabis community because of how much more effective they are than edibles in terms of providing adequate, titrated doses of cannabis for new patients.

Remember to let your tincture drops absorb for about 30 seconds under your tongue into your sublingual artery, which should result in a good body high in about 15 minutes.

Tinctures are relatively cheap , and you can find them at any dispensary. Tinctures are very easy to make as well. The traditional, warm method will take you about a month to make. The hot dragon method is far and away the fastest way to make and take a tincture.

We suggest trying the cold method first since it involves the least amount of effort and wait time before you can taste your first homemade tincture. Enjoy!

hemp seed oil for under eyes

Hemp Oil for Skin

We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.

Hempseed oil is often referred to as “hemp oil,” and it’s harvested by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Hemp oil is often unrefined. It’s a clear green oil and can have a nutty flavor.

It’s different from cannabidiol (CBD) oil, which is an extract of the cannabis plant and utilizes hemp flowers and leaves for its production.

Hempseed oil is made from the hemp seed itself and usually doesn’t contain any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component, although this seems to be widely disputed . According to 2017 research , CBD oil may also have very low and insignificant levels of THC.

Hemp oil has numerous health benefits, including those that improve skin health. It’s so beneficial for skin health thanks to its nourishing vitamins and moisturizing qualities.

There are a number of skin care benefits that you can get from using hempseed oil, either topically or by consuming it.

Moderates oil production

Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.

Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil.

Moisturizes and soothes inflammation

One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.

This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.

Treats atopic dermatitis

Part of what makes hempseed oil so beneficial to the skin is that it’s rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Consuming these nutrients can help to treat skin conditions like atopic dermatitis.

One randomized, single-blind crossover study found evidence that dietary hempseed oil reduced the symptoms and appearance of clinical atopic dermatitis after 20 weeks.

Has anti-aging properties

In addition to moisturizing and soothing the skin, hemp oil has anti-aging properties. Hemp oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging from developing.

The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in hemp oil can’t be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-aging, so they’re important nutrients to add to the diet.

There are several methods you can use to get the skin benefits from hemp oil.

Topical use of hemp oil

The first method is to apply the hemp oil directly to your skin. This can work if you have immediate irritation or dry patches of skin that you want to soothe quickly.

Before using the oil, try a patch test to make sure you won’t get an unwanted reaction:

  • Wash and dry a small area of your upper arm (such as the crook of your elbow).
  • Apply a small amount of the pure hemp oil. (If using the hemp and essential oil mixture described below, test in a separate spot from the pure oil and at a different time.)
  • Cover the spot with a bandage and leave it in place for 24 hours, being careful not to get the bandage wet.
  • If any redness, burning, itching, or other irritation occurs, you can assume you’re sensitive to the oil and shouldn’t use it. If you have a reaction, remove the bandage immediately and wash the spot with soap and water.
  • If you don’t see or feel any reaction, then the oil is probably safe to use.

If you’re using the hemp oil to treat acne and want to apply it topically, apply the oil directly to clean skin and leave it on for one to two minutes before washing it away with warm water.

Hemp oil and essential oil mixture. You can also combine hemp oil and other anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients with a recipe like the following, which can be applied directly to the skin:

  • 1/4 cup hemp oil
  • 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (can be melted in the microwave; place desired amount in a microwaveable container and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until completely melted)
  • 4 to 5 drops skin-boosting essential oil, like lavender or rosemary oil

Note: Essential oils, like lavender or rosemary oil, should only be used topically and in a diluted mixture. Do not take essential oils internally. Many are toxic.

Oral use of hemp oil

The second method is to ingest hemp oil, which can provide the same skin benefits and additional overall health benefits as using the oil topically. If you take hemp oil orally, there’s less risk of any skin irritation or break outs, although it may cause some temporary digestive upset.

Talk to your doctor before taking hemp oil orally.

If you do take it orally, you can have 1 to 2 teaspoons daily — either all at one time or divided into two doses.

If you don’t like the taste or consuming the hemp oil straight, you can also use it in different recipes. One option is to mix it into foods, like smoothies, salad dressings, or soup. Or you can use it for cooking.

Hempseed oil is often referred to as “hemp oil,” and it’s harvested by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Hemp oil is often unrefined. It’s a clear green oil and can have a nutty flavor. Learn about the benefits of hemp oil for skin and how to implement it into your skincare routine.

CBD for Recovery

If you’ve ever heard about CBD, you may know that it’s one of the most exciting and truly interesting products on the health and wellness market at the moment. It conquers more and more areas, offers more benefits, and opens up more opportunities how it can be used.

Of course, the most important discovery is its positive effect and how it can help in coping with various health problems. There are plenty of tests that prove it, however, a lot of evidence is informal. From what we know, cannabidiol does wonder in solving such issues as seizures, psychosis or mental disorders, nausea, migraines, depression, and anxiety. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effect, it also helps in recovering from a workout. How? Let’s look at this question from all sides and find out.

Why do we suffer after a workout anyway?

We all know working out is good for our health and it’s essential for those who care about their physique in general. But in everything you do, it’s always important to keep a balance and not to go into extremes.

After intense training, all of us have felt tension and muscle ache, and of course, perceived it as a norm. In fact, such workouts cause microscopic damage to our muscle fibers. It’s no surprise that muscles get inflamed as a result. Having had such damage, our body finds ways to heal itself. It manifests when everything starts to hurt as well as when you feel lethargy and in some cases, exhaustion.

Some people prefer to take different pills to prevent it from happening. No doubt, there are medications and supplements that are able to relieve pain, but are you sure they are harmless?

We are happy to tell you that you have another option. A lot of people that had either examined CBD in labs or people that picked up CBD infused products and gave them a try, belief in genuinely amazing properties of CBD. There are several pieces of evidence that CBD influences suppressing cytokine, chemokine, and T-regulatory cell production, which in turn affects the acceleration of the recovery process.

What is even CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant, produced from hemp or marijuana seeds. From these plants, you get the oils and various products that you see almost everywhere. Components in the composition of CBD has relaxing properties, but at the same time, they won’t get you high. All due to the low content (less than 0.3%) of the element Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD with higher levels of THC induces what’s known as the entourage effect.

How does it work?

Cannabinoids trigger processes in our body as they bind to receptor cells known as cannabinoid receptors.

When CBD enters the body, it initiates the pharmacological characteristics of the receptor response, starting a chain of intracellular biochemical processes in the body.

Thus, thanks to this compound, the entire neural network is protected, and processes such as homeostasis, immune balance, and recovery from stress occur.

Various tests are carried out regularly, that allows us to receive more information about Cannabidiol and how it affects a human’s body. Scientists confirm more positive effects that CBD has on our bodies. Consumption of CBD has an influence on vanilloid receptors that are responsible for pain regulation, adenosine, that also deal with pain regulation and sleep cycle, and serotonin levels that aim to balance our stress and mood.

How much CBD to use

You can be sure that CBD is safe to use. However, how much oil to use is a tricky question. Lots of tests show that even high doses of up to 1.500 mg per day and chronic use are not harmful for people’s health.

Of course, you don’t need to consume that much oil, but figuring out what is the right amount for you specifically is difficult.

However, we do know that 1–6 milligrams of CBD must be taken for every 10 pounds of body weight based on pain levels. Another hypothesis is to start with 5–10 mg per day and increase the quantity from 5 to 10 mg until you feel relief.

Make sure you monitor your condition while taking this product, and don’t forget to discuss your decision to take CBD with your doctor first. Then you will be 100% sure you are making everything right without causing hard to your body.

Forms of using CBD

There are a few different ways to take CBD, and they all have various effects. Now let’s talk about each of them in more detail.

  1. Edibles. This type of a CBD infused product might be anything from gummies to brownies. It’s an easy (and delicious!) way to get your daily dose of cannabidiol.
  2. Tinctures. Probably the most convenient format, because in this way you can control the dosage of the drug, and it’s also very easy to use.
  3. Balms. There are plenty of beauty products containing CBD. To achieve the desired effect, they are usually applied directly to the skin.
  4. Vape. This method involves smoking a vape juice or a cartridge.

Experimenting with all forms can help you understand which option is the most suitable for you.

Can I legally buy CBD?

According to the Farm Act of 2018, medical cannabis and its derivative CBD is legal across all 50 states of America. This product recognized as class A drug federally, but if you own it, you are an offender. There are a few caveats like this, nevertheless, you’re safe to buy CBD across the United States.

However, recreational/medicinal marijuana and CBD produced from marijuana plants are still subject to state laws.

As for European laws, they differ from country to country. The general EU law permits taking CBD products that contain no more than 0.2% THC, and there are a few exceptions, such as Croatia, Slovenia, etc.

Is CBD also legal for athletes?

If you are a professional athlete or take sport seriously and you are considering to try CBD, you should know whether this product is allowed for athletes.

The use of cannabis is not a new thing in sport. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed it from its prohibited substance list in 2018, so CBD is permitted in competition, and your medals will stay with you.

However, you should be 100% of what you are buying. CBD is the only cannabinoid that is legal in applicable sports. If a product contains any other cannabinoids, such as THC, you could be disqualified or get other penalties.

After we found out that CBD is allowed according to various regulations, let’s discuss CBD benefits for athletes, and how such a drug can enhance muscle recovery.

CBD and muscles

A breaking down of muscle fibers after an intense workout is important for their growth, however, the excess inflammation can cause changes in the body.

Excess inflammation interferes with muscle recovery, which increases the risk of run down and injuries. Professional athletes can even become ill due to the slower response of the immune system.

In some cases, athletes can be faced with awful diseases: kidney problems and muscle death. All due to serum blood urea nitrogen and creatinine levels increase, which is also caused by excess inflammation.

Natural anti-inflammatory properties of CBD is a perfect solution to help in muscle recovery. Test results show us that antioxidant effects decrease inflammation and contribute to faster muscle recovery by reducing spasticity.

CBD also has shown its participation in reducing excess urea nitrogen and creatinine levels, which aid in avoiding severe complications for athletes.

CBD and muscle growth

If you pay special attention to muscle strengthening and want to achieve the best effect, then CBD can also help here.

Yes, most athletes prefer to use various supplements, pharmacy drugs, and products for muscle growth. Cannabidiol likewise has useful properties applicable to this task.

As you know, anti-catabolic supplements reduce the production of catabolic hormones, which contribute to muscle loss.

CBD promotes such an anti-catabolic response by intensifying the endocannabinoid receptors. When the endocannabinoid system is activated, it prevents the body from losing muscle mass, which subsequently helps muscles recover and grow much faster.

CBD and sprains/athletic injuries

Training, competitions, heavy sports equipment — it’s not surprising that athletes are subject to lots of injuries.

The first thing that comes to mind in such cases is various painkillers, but we have a different option for you.

CBD can be not only a very effective product for pain relief, but it can also reduce the recovery time by decreasing inflammation and helping in muscle recovery. Faster recovery is often vital for athletes not to lose form. Nobody wants to miss out on training or prolong their sufferings, right?

We feel pain due to neurons in our central nervous system that have a reaction in case of injuries. Painkilling is one of the most known and useful properties of CBD that has been discovered so far. CBD makes endocannabinoid receptors slow down neurons, which helps us not to feel pain anymore. CBD works like ordinary pain relievers, but, without numerous side effects.

CBD and endurance

Strength, speed, and endurance are quite essential qualities for athletes. They determine the results you achieve and “who gets the gold”.

If we are talking about long-distance runners, to them the question of endurance is always relevant. So what generally affects stamina?

Turns out a high level of running and excretion of endorphins directly related to the endocannabinoid system.

Another discovery made by scientists about the properties of CBD showed that it contributes to the development of endurance since it helps balance and activate the endocannabinoid system.

Now let’s sum up all the information and highlight the main benefits of using CBD for athletes.

Advantages for athletes:

Cannabis is an effective way of reducing pain from different injuries, including musculoskeletal pain from workouts and stiff joints.

Alternative to NSAIDs.

Many athletes prefer to take over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), but they are not always safe for your health.

Such medications can increase the risk of renal damage, heart attack, and stroke if you are taking them frequently or on in a long-term period.

There are some cases of athletes taking CBD, who saw the results and didn’t experience any side effects as opposed to NSAIDs.

Alternative to opioids.

Opioid medications are highly effective for pain management, but carry a significant risk of addiction, which can result in overdose or even be fatal.

Compare to opioids, cannabinoids are not so active but may be useful for long-term pain management. This can be a reasonable advantage case taking CBD causes far less dependency risk or death.

Inflammation may have one of two effects: permissible level of inflammation can either be useful for helping stimulate positive training adaptations or case of excess inflammation, it discourages recovery.

Cannabinoids have a significant anti-inflammatory effect and reduce cytokine (substance that increases inflammation), so they help your body to recover faster.

Small and large intestines inflammation is the reason for discomfort for the sportsmen, and especially GI distress, which is the leading cause of athletes drop out of races. Of course, CBD won’t solve stomach problems, but if you have inflammation issues that contribute to gut problems, CBD may be a practical solution. This applies both during or after workouts.

Lack of sleep improver.

Sleeping has always been, still is, and will be the best remedy for human health. But what should you do in a situation when you are an athlete, you need to restore energy, and yet you have problems with sleep? Just keep calm, we have a way out of this situation.

People who take CBD noted the ease and speed of falling asleep, as well as more restful sleep.

CBD products for athletic

What is best for athletes: cream or oil? Is vaping will give the desired results? Are there any other options? Let’s get the answers to all the questions and find out together.

There is a variety of options for athletes which product to use. And it’s good to know the features of each of them.

Edibles. The easiest and most convenient way to get your CBD norm is trying CBD infused food. Nowadays you can find a large assortment of such products on the market. Furthermore, athletes can even find protein bars and powders that contain CBD.

Tinctures. It’s a form that takes the least amount of time to be absorbed by our system and have an effect. Tinctures are great to be paired with other supplements an athlete can be taking.

Capsules. Aside from convenience of taking a capsule, it is also great because you can be sure of the dosage. Tablets can be taken regularly for maintenance or treatment of chronic pain, and also for long-term muscle recovery and effectiveness improvement.

Creams and lotions. A well-known way for a temporary pain relief effect. Creams and lotions that contain CBD can influence the source of pain and inflammation, providing faster and more effective relief.

Vape pen. Vaping can provide an almost instant effect. But at the same time, such a method has a lousy side effect: it might have a negative effect on lung functions.

There are always new CBD infused products that appear on the market. These are just a few options that are best for athletes.

What form of a CBD product would be best for you? There is no universal advice because what works for one might not be right for another. Perhaps the only way to find out if a product works for you and gives you the desired effect is to try it. However, make sure always to research all the products that you wish to try.

How to use CBD?

A variety of CBD contained products provides an opportunity to get needed CBD through capsules, pills, and other forms from oils to creams. Also, there are many sports beverages, such as recovery drinks with CBD. It’s important to understand some nuances about CBD consumption because they may affect how slowly or quickly you get the results.

Capsules, oil, and edibles are for internal use. Such products have to be digested that’s why their effect may take a bit longer. Sublingual drops/tinctures are considered the fastest way to achieve a result.

Creams and lotions should be applied directly to the body. This method of using the product allows topical creams to work quicker than edibles. As opposed to internal use, creams that directly sink in through the skin layers, make their way to our system faster, whereas digestion takes a little bit longer.

But what about drug tests?

This test usually involves urinalysis or another drug test to find out the THC amount in a human body. Even though CBD contains a small amount of THC, they are different metabolites, and drug tests can’t be positive.

CBD is available as “full-spectrum” or “isolate”. Full-spectrum CBD products contain CBD and other compounds found in the original cannabis plant, which could include small amounts of THC. CBD isolate, and CBD produced from hemp would be a better choice, from an anti-doping standpoint.

It’s also important to note that some companies may add extra THC into a product to increase the effect. If your CBD comes from hemp seed, it should contain 0.3% THC or less, which is within a norm and won’t show on a test.

However, some consumers noted that after a daily use of a CBD product for a long time, the THC amount rose above average. But in reality, if you buy products from verified and reliable companies, CBD won’t cause an increase of THC amount in the body.

Potential risks

As well as other pills or medicaments, CBD oil has its side effects. In some cases, it can cause dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness, or fatigue. It’s also essential to mention that CBD can not be compatible with other medications you’re taking.

Therefore, always take this fact into account, and don’t forget to consult a doctor before using CBD.

Is CBD oil addictive?

Since numerous CBD products contain different levels of THC, you might be wondering if CBD is addictive.

Why should it be? At the molecular level, CBD is not addictive and doesn’t produce an effect that THC does.

It’s important to know that even THC doesn’t induce the same degree of physical withdrawal symptoms that opiates or alcohol do. Though cannabis use can often cause a cannabis use disorder. This condition leads to cannabis withdrawal symptoms that can be compared to growing a dependency. However, there is no evidence of CBD being addictive.

Things to pay attention to before buying:

Certificate of Analysis. Obviously, you should only buy certified products. A COA provides complete transparency about the ingredients that have been used to produce a product, and you can be confident that there won’t be anything you don’t wish to have in a composition. Be it nasty chemicals that you want to avoid, or if you have an allergy to something, a COA can help you figure out if a product is worth trying.

Make sure to ask for a COA if it doesn’t come with the product in a store or is not listed on the website. You can either contact the seller or a company directly and request this information.

THC. Keep it in mind: 0.3% is the right amount of THC that CBD product is allowed to have. Excess consumption of THC will give you a high and will show on a drug test.

Test date. When you analyse COA, pay close attention to the date, lot number, and an image of the packaging. If the test date was a long time ago, the lot number doesn’t match it, or the product packaging has changed, these are signs that COA may be invalid.

Conclusion

Recovery is a very individual process. There will never be a straightforward answer to questions such as how much CBD to take, whether it will work on you or not, or what form of CBD to choose. The effect will always depend on various factors.

But, as we have seen, CBD is helping with athletic recovery and could be a great addition to your recovery routine. CBD products can solve a lot of problems and can be especially helpful for those who experience a lot of tension after intense physical activity.

No doubt, there are a lot of painkillers, however, they can result in building a dependency or addiction. Obviously, there is a much better and more convenient way to manage the recovery process, allowing athletes to train hard yet minimizing the health damages. Using CBD products improves recovery time and quality due to its effectiveness. Many argue that it is a lot healthier and more effective compared to traditional pain management drugs.

According to studies, there are plenty of benefits in using CBD oil, especially for muscle recovery,. Still, there are also a few risks and possible side effects to consider as well. Our aim was to inform you about this possibility, and now it is up to you to decide whether you want to give it a try.

water soluble hemp cbd oil 7

Water soluble hemp cbd oil 7

#1 Recommended Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil by Healthcare Professionals

CBD VS HEMPZORB81™

WHY ARE PEOPLE USING MED 7® FULL SPECTRUM HEMP CBD OIL?

Made with Purzorb® Technology, Med 7’s Hempzorb81™ full spectrum hemp CBD oil is the fastest and most effective CBD on the market!

Purzorb® converts oil based ingredients into ones that are water soluble without changing their structure or losing efficacy, making them much easier to absorb into the body at 7x the speed of regular oils.

Med 7 has a clinically proven onset of action of 15 minutes and 85% bioavailablity compared to other CBD oils that can take up to 90 minutes and have only 6% bioavailability, which means if you’re not using Med 7, you’re flushing 94% of your oil down the drain.

Take Med 7 to relax before bedtime or a big presentation, or make it part of your daily routine for overall health and wellness of body and mind.

THE MED 7 DIFFERENCE
GREATER FULL SPECTRUM PURITY*

Purzorb® technology isn’t the only thing that sets Med 7 apart. Hempzorb81™ is organically sourced from only the highest quality, federally and state certified and tested growers using super-critical CO2 to extract the raw oil with pressure and cold temperatures, ensuring that it’s not exposed to the heavy solvents used in lower quality, more widely available CBD oils.

Federal regulations require all CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC, which most manufacturers remove using toxic chemicals and solvents, whole grain alcohol, or ethanol. This also removes CBD which has to be mixed back into their products as an isolate, resulting in a diluted, less potent and less natural CBD oil. Med 7 employs a patented method called Column Chromatography that identifies, separates and removes only THC, leaving the other cannabinoids including CBD and the rare “varins”, CBDV and THCV, intact.

Hempzorb81™ is an 81% cannabinoid oil containing all the natural cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids in the plant, making Med 7 the purest, most powerful CBD oil you can buy.

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in industrial hemp, a species of the Cannabis sativa plant. Unlike the more well-known cannabinoid TCH, CBD is devoid of any psychoactive effects that give the ‘high’ found in marijuana.

WHY TAKE FULL SPECTRUM HEMP CBD OIL?

CBD and other cannabinoids found in full spectrum hemp oil help regulate the endocannabinoid system(ECS). The ECS is one of the body’s systems globally involved in maintaining homeostasis or stability and balance, connecting all of the body’s organs and systems through the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS is being tested and evaluated for its role in pain management, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-anxiety, memory, appetite suppression, movement disorders including seizures, and ADHD to name a few. Although the body has its own endogenous cannabinoids, plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD, CBDV and THCV found in Med 7 have been shown to help regulate the ECS via two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body – CB1 and CB2. These receptors are found most abundantly in the brain and immune system respectively (see figure 1 at right).

SEE THE DIFFERENCE, FEEL THE DIFFERENCE

A CBD isolate is either a laboratory synthetic or an organic version of CBD that has been isolated from all the other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, and is often labeled as ‘pure CBD’. Studies show that a CBD isolate does not benefit from the entourage effects of full spectrum hemp CBD oil. Only one isolated CBD component in the form of an oral drug called Epidiolex is currently approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of two rare and severe forms of epilepsy in patients two years of age and older.

The full spectrum of compounds found in Med 7 acts as an entourage effect working together for optimal results, giving you the most impact of cannabinoids to the mind and body.

How many grams are in an eighth? And other cannabis conversions.

So, you’re ready to purchase your marijuana. You’ve selected your flower and the budtender asks, “How much you would like, an eighth, maybe a quarter?”

If you’re not already familiar with cannabis weights, you might be wondering “how much is an eighth? Is that too much? Can I just buy one gram? How much is a gram?”

Marijuana dispensaries and delivery services weigh cannabis products such as flower and concentrates in grams. Concentrates can be purchased in half-grams and full grams, while cannabis flower is measured in grams.

What is a gram, and how much is it exactly?

One gram, sometimes called a dime-bag or dub, is the perfect amount for cannabis consumers who prefer to smoke out of a handpiece, bong, or joint.

How much is an eighth in comparison to a gram?

When purchasing cannabis from a dispensary, an eighth is the most common form of marijuana measurement. But how much is an eighth? In the cannabis marketplace, an eighth is 3.5 grams.

The term eighth refers to the fact that it is an eighth of an ounce, but those savvy with measurements know one-eighth of an ounce is actually 3.543603875 grams. Yes, the industry rounds down.

With an eighth of weed, you’ll be able to roll two to three blunts or a handful of joints. Eighths are also known as a half-quarter or a slice.

Retail weights

A quarter of weed clocks in at 7 grams. A quarter-ounce of marijuana is enough for five to seven blunts and an arsenal of joints.

A half-ounce is 14 grams. This quantity is also referred to as a half or half “O.” With a half-ounce, you can roll between 7 and 14 blunts.

How many grams are in an ounce?

An ounce weighs in at 28 grams, equating to four quarters or eight eighths. Ounces are also referred to by other names like a zip or an “O.” The possession limits for most states and countries are cited in grams and ounces. Some states and countries place restrictions on how much weed you can possess at a given time and how much you can purchase per month.

A quarter-pound is 113.4 grams, which also equals 4 ounces. Quarter-pounds are often called QP for short.

The next step up from the quarter-pound is a half-pound. Weighing at 226.8 grams, a half-pound, or 8 ounces of cannabis is also known as half-pack and half-pounder.

1 pound is equivalent to 453 grams or 16 ounces, enough to put a dent in the bank account. A pound can cost up to $3,000 and can be called a pack or an elbow.

Dispensary conversions

Have you ever seen or heard the term “5-gram eighth” and wondered what it means? We just identified eighths as 3.5 grams so how can dispensaries rewrite the metric system and declare eighths to equal 5 grams? Just how much is a five-gram eighth?

Five-gram eighths describe the price point for the amount of cannabis. For instance, a customer who selects a 5-gram eighth will receive 5 grams of cannabis for the price of the strain’s eighth. Any “eighth” that’s more than 3.5 grams is basically describing bonus weed.

International conversions

How do people around the world weigh weed?

Every country except Burma, Liberia, and the United States uses the metric system. With different units of measurements around the globe, how do other countries weigh their weed if they’re on a different system? Most of the world has adopted the metric system. The decimal system of measurement is known as the International System of Units (SI). In short, cannabis is measured by grams no matter where you go. Beyond grams, cannabis weights outside the U.S. are typically referred to in kilograms, or 1,000 grams. One kilo, as it is often called, is 2.20462 pounds.

Order like a local

Grams may be the universal weed measurement, but what we call cannabis changes based on your location.

Countries all over the world use different slang terms to refer to marijuana. So, if you want to shop like a local, it’s best to talk like one, too. In North America, cannabis is referred to as weed, reefer, marijuana, Mary Jane and a host of other words, while other parts of the world like Australia use slang terms like “hooch” and “choof.” People in Jamaica say “dagga.” And while you’re doing some research on ordering like a local in your vacation destination, check up on the laws and regulations before you go.

What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabidiol, one of cannabidiols obtained from hemp Cannabis sativa L with the use of CO2 extraction. Contrary to its isomer, tetrahydrocannabinol THC, it does not show psychoactive and mind-altering effects, therefore it is totally safe and legal and may be used by everyone.

Terpenes
Apart from the main active substances contained in hemp, i.e. cannabinoids, special attention should be paid to terpenes, which exhibit strong biological activity and synergistic effect along with other substances in hemp. Terpenes are volatile compounds in the plant responsible for maintaining aroma, taste and production of aromatic oil. They play a biological and therapeutic role, therefore they are often used in aromatherapy. The strongest terpenes contained in hemp are: myrcene, pinene, limonene, linalool, eucalyptol and caryophyllene.

Endocannabinoid system regulation
Regular application of CBD oil in a natural way boosts the stores of cannabinoids in the organism, supporting and regulating incredibly important endocannabinoid system.

Endocannabinoid system plays a range of functions in the organism and is composed of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous ligands and enzymes synthesizing and degrading ligands. The most well-known receptors are CB1 – located mainly in the brain, central nervous system, circulatory and digestive systems and CB2 – located mainly in peripheral organs, especially those related to the immune system.

Thanks to the wide distribution of the receptors in the human organism, endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining general balance of the organism, called homeostasis and facilitates communication between different cell types. Dysfunction of this system may result in weaker response of the immune system leading to frequent infections and development of autoimmune diseases. Other complications are: sleeplessness, lack of appetite and other related diseases, such as anorexia, problems with the digestive system and mood fluctuations.

Antidepressant effect
Numerous studies proved that CBD oil activates a serotonin receptor 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) counteracting depression, anxiety and regulating sleep, pain perception and addictions. Other anti-anxiety properties of CBD may be caused by the stimulation of adenosine receptor, regulating the function of the circulatory system, i.e. the utilization of oxygen of the heart muscle and coronary blood flow. It also plays an important role in the brain – in certain situations it decreases the utilization of dopamine and glutamate.

Wide pro-health properties
One of the most important properties of CBD is strong anti-inflammatory effect. Studies on people with rheumatoid arthritis proved that supplementation with CBD decreases joint inflammation even by 50%. Thanks to this, it is also used in other inflammatory diseases, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. CBD also works well in all autoimmune diseases characterized by chronic and general inflammation of the organism.

Anti-inflammatory properties are valued also by sportsmen and people practicing intensive physical effort. CBD decreases microinjuries caused by excessive physical activity and muscle soreness, which is directly reflected in better endurance and strength results and improved regeneration.

Hemp oil has analgesic effect, helps to fall asleep and deal with negative effects of excessive emotional, mental and physical stress. It is helpful in inhibiting the development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases by its active participation in neurogenesis. It also improves memory, concentration and mental fluency.

CBD is used during therapies of cancer. It helps to better endure negative effects of chemotherapy – it stimulates appetite, decreases nausea and vomiting and improves mood and well-being. Moreover, cannabidiol destroys cancer cells by turning off the activation of ID-1 gene, which is responsible for spreading cancer cells and is one of the strongest inductors of apoptosis, i.e. natural cell death.

Summing up, Nano Drops by CBD Naturals is a dietary supplement with a wide spectrum of effects on the human organism. It is recommended to people suffering from all kinds of diseases of the immune system, circulatory system and nervous system and also to those who would like to take care about health in a complex and natural way.

how to make money off selling weed

Can You Actually Get Rich Selling Weed?

When you’re in high school and college, selling weed seems like a dream job on par with race car driver or pirate. The access to drugs ups your social cache, you make your own hours, and you can get high whenever you want. I assume that pretty much everyone between the ages of 15 and 25 has dealt drugs, or seriously considered it, or at least fantasized about the ways they would avoid the cops while raking in that sweet, sweet drug cash. I would sell only to trusted classmates and refuse to talk business over phone or computer except by way of an elaborate code that might fool cops and parents. All in all, a perfect plan.

So why doesn’t everyone cash in? Well, to begin with, even though the people I bought weed from as a teenager were far from cool or tough in the traditional sense, they clearly had some kind of savviness or street wisdom that I lacked. I have no idea where they were getting their drugs from, but I assume at some point dealers have to handle interactions with sketchy people who are either their suppliers or their suppliers’ suppliers. Every dorky kid slinging dime bags at the Jewish Community Center is only a few degrees of separation from a dude with a gun.

Nevertheless, even in hindsight, the weed merchants of my youth appear to have gotten off scot-free. As far as I know, no one I ever bought from got arrested, or even suspended. In my mind, selling weed would have enabled me to save more money than I did through my grunt labor at Panera Bread, Firehouse Subs, Pollo Tropical, and a litany of other fast food restaurants.

But were any of those dealers I knew making any real cash? With so many weed dealers roaming America’s campuses and 7-Eleven parking lots, is the market too crowded? And has the loosening of weed laws helped or hurt dealers looking to get rich? To find out, I hit up people in both the illegal and legal marijuana trades to see who—if anyone—was cashing in.

I started with a college student I’ll call Darren. The Manhattan native got into selling weed two years ago when he was behind on rent. He and a friend pooled together $120 each and bought an ounce from an old high school buddy, then went to Ace Hardware, bought some baggies, and started offering delivery for orders as low as $15.

Because Darren was wiling to haul ass around NYC for the tiniest amount of money, people started hitting him up slowly but surely. The fact that he doesn’t smoke made it easier to turn a profit. When he and his partner doubled their money, they went back and asked for two ounces, and managed to haggle for a discount. Two weeks later, word had spread to other dealers in the area.

“Now this is where people started figuring out who’s entered the market,” Darren says. “Word moves quick.” Another old acquaintance sent a text offering a quarter pound of weed, and a menu of choices.

“So like I was getting shit like Blue Dream, Cookie Monster, Girl Scout Cookies, Platinum Kush, Blackberry Kush, White Nightmare,” Darren says. “I was like, ‘What the fuck?’ And he was willing to put it on the arm, which means on credit.”

The new arrangement was that Darren had two weeks to pay back the price of the quarter pound, which was easy, he tells me, since he and his friend were the only dealers selling any exotic strands in their area. About a month or two after that, another old friend texted with an offer to front an entire pound, which was about the size of a bed pillow. The friend also didn’t care about when he would be paid back.

This sort of friendliness is incredible to me, but one of the big things I learned from Darren is that most of the weed world seems to operate around credit. As he explained, though, “Why would you run off with a pound that would sell for $2,000, when the potential in the long run is worth so much more?”

The second lesson I learned was that middle-tier dealers are making a lot of their profits doing flips, or moving big amounts of weed for tiny amounts of money to other dealers below them. It seems obvious in retrospect, but they’re basically selling the fact that they have a connection.

“There’s a guy I sell an ounce to for $200,” he tells me. “He’ll literally sell the ounce to some other dude for $220, and it’s an easy $20 for less than 30 minutes of his time, so he’ll come back and do it again right away. Sometimes it feels like you’re not even selling weed.”

Darren’s been dealing for three years now, and he’s moving a pound or two every week and a half. The guy above him, he says, is moving anywhere from 20 to 50 pounds a week, but still doesn’t consider himself a kingpin, or even big-time.

Darren has no desire to get to that level; he wants to pass his business onto someone else when he graduates from college. But if he kept with it, he might come to resemble a dude I’ll call Brian, who makes big bucks running drugs as a full-time business.

Brian claims he grosses half a million a year, which comes out to about $250,000 after payroll and other expenses.

Brian’s been in the weed business for about three years and has watched it become even more lucrative in that time. A pound used to cost $4,500, but now he can get one for $3,330 or $3,800. “Retail prices haven’t changed at all,” he says. “That means a lot of people are making good money now because wholesale has gone down so much.”

On paper, Brian makes next to nothing, about $15,000 a year. He has an LLC officially set up in Delaware, where taxes are lower, and now employs an uncurious accountant and a handful of deliverymen to do the schlepping he’s grown tired of doing himself.

Brian claims he grosses half a million a year this way, which comes out to about $250,000 after payroll and other expenses. Despite this, he doesn’t consider himself big-time, either.

“Big-time guys are out in California and have connects to multiple farms,” he insists. “They fly out here, arrange things, fly back and make sure everything is packaged correctly. They do that twice a year and make a million each time and are chilling in California the rest of the time.”

Brian tells me that he knew quite a few people who had been robbed, which highlighted one of the big downsides to selling weed illegally. The thought of that looming risk, coupled with his comment about big timers having connects with Cali, though, made me wonder about the other side of the weed business—the legitimate side. Was it easier to make money selling weed the legal way?

To answer that question, I called up Anthony Franciosi, the budding entrepreneur behind the Honest Marijuana Company, who moved to Colorado from New Jersey when he was 18 to become a marijuana farmer. As he learned to grow, he worked as an irrigation specialist and did restaurant work in the resort town of Steamboat Springs.

He got his start hawking extra buds from his harvest to a local dispensary. “I found that when I would give it to them, it was just disappearing, and they wanted even more of it,” he tells me. “If I had the foresight back then, maybe I would have put some money away and got some licenses.”

Instead, he found starting a farm of his own difficult. His first opportunity came in the form of a family friend who figured Franciosi was responsible enough to entrust with a $300,000 investment. The idea was to control the product from seed to sale, eventually opening a storefront. But it soon became apparent they didn’t have the funds to build that kind of operation.

“They weren’t really happy with the product they were gonna be able to come out with using that kind of money,” Franciosi says. “Basically that whole plan just flopped on its head.”

He found a second partner from New Jersey, however, someone with a bit more capital who was willing to spend $1.5 million to build a growing facility from scratch in a rural area. It’s set to open early next month, and it will employ five full-time employees as well as some auxiliary help, like trimmers. Those workers will earn around $45,000 a year, Franciosi says, which is a pretty good deal considering those jobs don’t require a college degree.

Overhead is a lot more complicated for on-the-books businesses like his; Franciosi not only has to pay his employees, he has to fork over a ton in taxes, without a lot of the write-offs that many federally legal businesses enjoy. Still, he remains optimistic.

Much like the illegal weed industry, the legal one seems to run on Monopoly money.

“I feel like the margins are shrinking, and that the people who got into the industry early were able to realize huge profits,” he says. “I think going forward it’s still a profitable business but practices just need to get better. I want to be a boutique facility—7,000 square feet as opposed to some in the state that are 200,000 square feet.” In the end, he hopes to produce 90 pounds per month in flower and have it retail for $200 an ounce in Denver and around $300 in the mountains.

Obviously, having a backer to the tune of $1.5 million helps. What I learned from talking to Franciosi is that much like the illegal weed industry, the legal one seems to run on Monopoly money. While it’s called “putting it on the arm” in the former, it’s called “venture capital” in the latter.

Eddie Miller is one of the guys who has a vested interest in seeing small-scale entrepreneurs like Franciosi succeed. The marketing professional, who built his first website in his parents’s Long Island basement at age 16, is one of the new breed of weed enthusiasts, almost evangelical in his passion for both kinds of green. He tells me he thinks it’s not a bad idea for kids to skip college and head to California or Colorado, and that he knows a guy who just invested $4.5 into the cultivation side and hopes to make it all back in the first year, and that the most profitable sector in pot is technology—which is why he’s the CEO of InvestInCannabis.com, a company that aims to sell infrastructure to fast-growing weed companies.

The unbridled optimism, though, made me a little weary. If everyone followed Miller’s example, wouldn’t all those new businesses and all that VC cash create a marijuana bubble? And what about when a couple of companies make it huge and become the Mercedes or Starbucks of weed?

When I asked would happen to the little guys, or to people who wanted to run boutique stores, Miller replied they would simply get eaten up by something like the Apple Store of pot.

I guess that makes sense. After all, there are huge companies like Anheuser Busch InBev that swallowed up many other businesses on the way to becoming global conglomerates. Just in 2015, ABIV bought the largest independent operation in California, Heineken bought 50 percent of Lagunitas, and MillerCoors purchased most of Saint Archer Brewing. It stands to reason that the economics of the weed industry will eventually resemble those of the beer market.

In Miller’s vision of the future, selling marijuana won’t be any different than selling DVDs or paper. Presumably that’ll be nice for him and others who have gotten in on the ground floor.

“Twenty years from now you won’t go into a store and ask for a gram of Khalifa Kush Bubble Hash, you’ll ask for a pack of it, or a box of it,” Miller says. “Everything will have been sized accordingly. The measurements by which it’s sold will have changed. As soon as there’s federal legalization, the tobacco, alcohol, and pharmaceutical industries will all get into cannabis.”

Add the two inevitabilities of legalization and consolidation together, and it seems unlikely that tomorrow’s teens will even be afforded the choice of becoming either becoming sandwich artists or dime-bag-slinging outlaws. Perhaps they’ll all be working at either the Starbucks of weed or actual Starbucks.

Franciosi, the grower, says that soon most of the weed on the market will be pharmaceutical grade, and that the people with 200,000 square-foot warehouses will be forced to use pesticides and other nasty chemicals to keep up. He hopes the people who want to deal with that will be motivated to buy his stuff, which he likened to small-batch whiskey. But he also thinks the black market will probably remain an option for the foreseeable future.

“The price for drug dealers is $50 a quarter, no matter what,” he says. “That’s kind of a joke here, though. It’s like, ‘Yeah, good job, you got some for $9 a gram, and this other guy paid $17,’ but you compare the two, and one’s some smushed-up stuff that looks like it’s been in your pocket. Still, the people that I know who are local and have been here for a long time in Colorado say the store prices can’t ever compete with the underground.”
