Empire Rolling Papers

When It come to Organic rolling papers, the first thing that comes to mind is $100 bills right? I didn’t think so!

Zig-Zag, OCB, Raw, If you smoke weed chances are you have come across one of these brands in your life. As cannabis becomes more and more accepted. People are rolling more joints. Naturally, more rolling paper brands are emerging from the smoke.

In this blog I’ll be rolling up some of the coolest luxury papers on the market. Empire $100 Bill Rolling Papers!

Pass The Benny!

Empire $100 Bill Luxury Papers are USDA certified organic vegetable paper, USDA certified organic non toxic vegetable coloring and a proprietary sugar glue.

Empire rolling Papers Benny Pack

Classic Benny Pack

They come in packs or “Wallets” of 10 Luxury $100 Bill Papers or a “Benny”. They also have tips or “Filters”.

I enjoyed these papers alot!

They are a bit thicker then I am used to, but I feel it helped more than it hindered me.

They are very large rolling papers.  You can really roll up a fatty with these Bennies. I did smoke the joint I rolled all to myself , however I feel “Passing The Benny” and sharing  in a session would be the way to go for these.

Also, they are a little on the pricey side. $20 will get you 40. At 50 cents a piece, I don’t think I will be rolling to many Bennies on my own.

I will be saving these papers for times I’m out on the town and looking to impress and share some good times with others.

A Sticky Situation

One thing I have heard people talking about is the glue. Or lack of glue for that matter. I am happy to say I did not run into this problem.

My experience was the glue held just like it was supposed to! I do make sure to make my glue very wet when rolling my j’s. Now I’m not sure if this was an issue with old batches of product, or maybe they listen to there consumers and made some adjustment to there proprietary glue.

Either way they are sticky!

Breaking Down CBD: A Guide To How Our Bodies Metabolize This Cannabinoid

Breaking Down CBD: A Guide To How Our Bodies Metabolize This Cannabinoid

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

cannabidiol

For even committed students of CBD, many don’t understand the metabolic processes involved in its consumption. While there is plenty of literature out there with a more technical focus, there are very few resources out there to communicate that focus in a plain way. In this article, we’ll review your body’s natural metabolic processes, and how CBD is broken down specifically.

What is Metabolism, Anyway?

Metabolism is the conversion of one chemical compound into another through enzymes. Enzymes are proteins that live within your body’s cells that speed up chemical reactions.

Most of your body’s metabolism happens in the gut wall, lungs, and blood plasma.

The main enzymes in metabolism are a part of the “cytochrome P450” group, which will be of importance later.

Metabolism is divided into two phases  – 1 and 2. In phase 1 metabolism, your body goes through oxidation and sheds electrons from whatever you’ve taken. After phase 1, the drug is said to be “oxidized.”

In phase 2, the drug becomes more water soluble, making it possible to expel the drug from your system. The drug also loses pharmacological activity during this time. Think – something leaves your body and becomes less effective.

To review, you take something, say CBD Capsules, and they enter your system. They make it to your liver, which is the processing center for the body. Two phases of chemical reactions occur and the drug loses its effect. After the end of the second metabolism phase, the CBD capsules are water soluble enough that they can be expelled from your system.

How is CBD Broken Down?

The first thing to say on CBD metabolism, is that it is very important to understand how CBD is broken down and how it interacts with other drugs in your system. As CBD moves into the liver and becomes metabolized, it is converted in a chemical compound 7-hydroxy-CBD

(7-OH-CBD), and may also be converted into 6-OH-CBD.

 cbd capsules

At this time, little is known about these metabolites, the leftovers of CBD metabolism. However, a derivative from this process, called D2 (E) Valproate, has anticonvulsant properties that might also be involved in the antiepileptic effects of CBD.

Cytochrome P450

Earlier in the article, we mentioned the importance of cytochrome P450, the group of enzymes mainly responsible for the liver’s metabolism. In CBD metabolism, CBD seems to have an inhibiting effect on these enzymes. Through this inhibitory effect, CBD prevents cytochrome P450 from metabolizing other compounds.

 blood

Now, this inhibitory effect can fluctuate with dosage, the individual, and how tightly CBD binds to cytochrome p450 before and after oxidation.

In clinical trials, as little as 25 mg of orally administered CBD, like the capsules we mentioned earlier, blocked the metabolism of an antiepileptic drug.

For consumers, this means that CBD can have potential reductive effects on other medications you may be taking. Be sure to consult your physician on the status of your individual metabolism.

The More You Know

Like many other industries, CBD is evolving. While there is much more information circulating now than ever before, there’s still much we don’t know about CBD, as evidenced by its metabolic processes. Truly, after CBD begins to metabolize within your body, we don’t know whether metabolites help or hurt its pre-metabolic effects. The more you know, the better decisions you make when it comes to your own consumption.

CBD E Liquid Checklist: A Newcomers Guide to Finding The Right CBD E Liquid

CBD E Liquid Checklist: A Newcomers Guide to Finding The Right CBD E Liquid

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

CBD E Liquid

The consumer audience still has so many questions about CBD. While there is a growing demand, both for information and product, it still seems like most people are uninformed when it comes to the topic. CBD E Liquid has become a popular CBD product with two industries – Vaping and CBD – that many people have a less than perfect understanding of. The intention of this article is to help consumers make smart buying decisions when buying their next CBD E Liquid.

CBD First

While there are many ingredients in different E Liquids, any consumer looking to purchase CBD E liquid should first and foremost be concerned with the quality of CBD. Here are a few of the things you should be looking for.

Sourcing

Sure, many different companies offer “real CBD” in their products. What you should be asking is, how did the CBD get to my hand? This due diligence isn’t any different than knowing how food products are being made. Knowing whether the Hemp was raised in a clean environment without contaminants is like knowing whether your food was grown organically. Our recommendation is to research the company to identify their sourcing protocol. Most “clean” Hemp is going to come from European farms or from research facilities within the United States. If a company isn’t clear about their sourcing, it may be time to move on.

Extraction

While CBD is natural to Hemp, it needs to be extracted to be isolated and placed into products. There is more than one way to do this, but the consensus best method is something called CO2 Extraction.

CBD Extraction

In CO2 Extraction, Carbon Dioxide goes through a series of temperature and consistency changes to achieve a “supercritical state.” In this supercritical state, CO2 has both liquid and gaseous properties, and is a perfect consistency to extract CBD from Hemp. The CO2 is pushed through a circuit (like in the image above) and collects the CBD from the Hemp. Because this process involves professional equipment, it weeds out lower quality producers.

Putting the CBD in E Liquid

Because of the large scale popularity that CBD now has, companies have been finding new ways for consumer to get their doses. One of these is creating E Liquids that enriched with CBD. The theory is, vaping CBD will allow a more immediate onset of CBD-positive effects. With this development, consumers need to make sure that not only the CBD but the other ingredients are of high quality.

VG/PG

Fundamental to an understanding of liquids is VG and PG, or Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol. VG and PG are both safe, non-toxic bases that help contain the flavors in your e liquid. They are both considered safe by the FDA and are commonly used in food products.

PG

PG is the more popular of the two bases, with a unique profile that sets it apart from VG. Generally speaking, you can expect PG to have:

  • A Thin Consistency – PG is thinner than VG and produces thinner clouds
  • Greater Throat Hit – it will feel heavier as you inhale it
  • Taste – has a more intense flavor than VG

CBD E Liquid PG vs VG

VG

VG is the other base used in E Liquids. You can expect VG to have:

  • A thicker consistency with a denser vapor
  • A naturally sweet taste
  • A lighter throat hit

With VG and PG, it’s more of a personal preference than anything else. Both products are safe to consumer, along with CBD. Keep in mind the vaping experience you want – do you want to blow thick clouds or leave little residue? Knowing the properties of both bases as well as an idea of your desired vaping experience will help you choose between VG and PG.

Nicotine

Many E Liquids contain nicotine in them, hence the reason why smokers turn to vaping as a way to wean off cigarettes. If an E Liquid does carry nicotine in it, it should be at least 99% pure and naturally extracted from tobacco. Low quality nicotine is known to cause bodily harm.

If you are a non-smoker, then you are going to want to find an E Liquid without nicotine in it. Non-nicotine E Liquids will typically clear visually and go down very easily, without a choking feeling or burn.

Aesthetics

There are many reasons people vape, but among them surely is the aesthetic enjoyment. By that, we don’t necessarily mean that you look cool doing it (though that too). We mean, for the sensations of vaping – the flavor, smell, and feeling of the E Liquid.

Flavor

A well-made E Liquid should taste like the thing it is intended to taste like. If you notice the flavor is “off,” it could because of an unbalanced composition. Remember that old saying? If an E Liquid tastes like shit, it’s probably a shit E liquid.

Smell

Whether based with VG or PG, without the flavoring, an E Liquid should have a mild to unnoticeable smell. This means, the only thing creating an aroma are the flavors themselves. If your E Liquid doesn’t smell like its flavoring, that’s a bad sign.

Going Down Easy

The last part of the “aesthetic experience” is how easy the E Liquid pulls. Aside from the differences between PG and VG, a user should expect a rather seamless experience from start to finish. A chunky, uneven vaping experience isn’t fun for anyone, regardless of other aesthetic considerations.

An Informed Purchase

CBD E Liquids could become one of the principle ways consumers get CBD. Their casual and fast-working nature means E Liquids are an attractive option for buyers. It is important, that these buyers become informed decision makers rather than victims of marketing campaigns. We hope to have equipped you with some sort of blueprint for your next CBD E Liquid purchase.

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Medical Marihuana Facilities License Process

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Medical Marihuana Facilities License Process

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Medical Marihuana Facilities License Process

by Hilary Vigil

Today, Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) issued an Advisory Bulletin on the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation’s (BMMR) intended application process for medical marihuana facilities licenses. The Advisory Bulletin is just that—advisory—and is issued in anticipation of emergency rules that LARA plans to promulgate under the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) in November.

The Advisory Bulletin lays out a two-step application process for applicants seeking a medical marihuana facility license. The two phases, prequalification and the license application, are designed to allow applicants to start the licensing process before having found the location of their proposed medical marihuana facilities, which should give applicants—and BMMR—more time to adjust to the new lay of the land. BMMR will start accepting applications on December 15 of this year, but applicants will be able to choose whether to submit both parts of the application at once or just the prequalification application first.

During the prequalification step, BMMR will conduct a full background investigation of license applicants and their affiliates, which requires fingerprinting and includes checks into criminal and financial history, regulation and taxation compliance, and business litigation history. A brief outline of required supporting documentation is provided in the Advisory Bulletin.

LARA intends to tailor the second step of the application process to the five different facility license types: growing, processing, provisioning, safety compliance, and secure transportation. This step will require more information and documentation from applicants, including approval from the municipality where the facility will be located and a copy of the municipality’s authorizing ordinance; plans for technology, staffing, marketing, inventory, security, and recordkeeping; floorplans and layouts for the facility; and proof of the facility’s insurance, bond, or securities.

LARA’s Advisory Bulletin gives applicants a good sense of what to expect from the application process, but the emergency rules that will be issued in November may change the process before the application period starts in December. As we have previously reported, LARA is hosting a series of “road shows” in early November to provide additional information and training about this process.

Michigan Announces “Road Shows” on Marihuana Licensure

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has announced the dates and locations of educational sessions to explain to potential medical marihuana licensees the state’s new license application process and seed-to-sale tracking system.

LARA’s “road shows” will not present the actual applications for licensure, but will cover the process, and most importantly, the requirements for applying for licensure in December. LARA will also explain how the METRC tracking system will operate to tag and track plants and marihuana products.

LARA’s educational sessions will take place from 9 a.m. until noon, in the following cities:

  • November 8: Farmington Hills (Oakland Community College).
  • November 9: University Center (Saginaw Valley State).
  • November 13: Traverse City (Great Wolf Lodge).
  • November 14: Kalamazoo (Wings Conference Center).
  • November 15: East Lansing (Michigan State’s Kellogg Center).

Preregistration is required by November 1, through METRC’s Michigan web page.

LARA’s announcement notes that there will be additional training opportunities made available. Also, Gongwer News Service is reporting that the November 9 and November 15 sessions will be live-streamed.

As followers of this blog know, LARA will be issuing emergency rules to govern the State’s new regulated medical marihuana industry that is emerging following the passage of last year’s Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. At least those rules addressing the application process and qualifications for licensure should be issued prior to the upcoming educational sessions.

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Marijuana Testing

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Marijuana Testing

Michigan Issues Advisory Bulletin on Marijuana Testing

Today, Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) released an Advisory Bulletin regarding testing points for marihuana and marihuana infused products. As with all of LARA’s Advisory Bulletins, this announcement provides advance notice of what LARA intends to include in emergency rules that will be issued to implement the State’s new Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA). We continue to expect those emergency rules to be issued by the early part of November.

Per this Advisory Bulletin, LARA intends to require that products be tested at two points in the supply chain. First, a grower will be required to test marijuana after harvest and before it is transferred to either a processor or a provisioning center. Second, a processor will be required to have products tested after they are in their final form and before they are transferred to a provisioning center. Test results will be recorded in the statewide monitoring system, and growers and processors able to access the results. Provisioning centers will not be allowed to sell marihuana or infused products unless the product has been both tested and labelled.

In addition to the mandatory testing points noted above, growers and processors may choose to have products tested at other stages. Caregivers may also have marijuana or infused products tested, but their products are not entered into the seed-to-sale tracking system.

Left unaddressed by this Advisory Bulletin are a number of critical testing issues that should be covered by the State’s emergency rules. Among these are the contents of labels, batch sizes for testing, the method of sample collection and transport, and, of course, the substances and thresholds for which products must be tested.
