The Best Edibles in 2019

Let’s say you’re a young adult and that you love cannabis, but smoking it, isn’t something you necessarily want to do anymore. Maybe it’s because you have virgin lungs and are prone to coughing a lot after a bowl hit. Or maybe you just don’t like the taste of cannabis. Well great news for you, there’s another way you can get into your happy zone.

Try an edible. They’re an excellent alternative to smoking or vaping. Always read the dosing recommendations and that will explain how much THC is in the edible. Different doses affect people differently, and each person can have a unique tolerance level.

There is a plethora of edibles to choose from, that you can buy online, or go to a dispensary. Brownies are a classic choice. Watermelon and strawberry gummies are delicious as well. A new edible is the lollipop.

It’s important to know your history, in order to pay respects to the people who came before you. Did you know there’s an entire timeline for edibles? 15th Century BCE, is when the Chinese first manufactured and consumed cannabis tea. Later on, in 1000 BCE, India cultivated cannabis and produced it in something called Bhang, which is generally known as the oldest recipe for cannabis consumption. During the 1840’s, the French indulged in eating hash with their coffee and tea. And in 1996, California became the first state to bring in “commercially made edibles”.

What’s the difference between smoking cannabis and eating cannabis? Potency is a significant factor that distinguishes the two. That’s why it’s always a good idea to start at a low dose for edibles, and then work your way up. There’s no rush, and no competition with your friends—even if there is an infinite arm wrestle contest—so have fun. Here’s Bonus Video for you all:

Some benefits of taking edibles include:

  1. Measured dosage
  2. Better and more complete body high
  3. Tastes extremely good
  4. And you don’t need to bother with lighters, or other tools.

And if you consider yourself to be a chef, you can even make your own edibles. It’s pretty simple, once you get the hang of it. Edibles are usually made from putting in cooking oil with activated cannabis. Cannabis compounds will melt into fatty substances, because they’re fat soluble. Used low-heat when making your edibles, overheating is not recommended, and will most likely damage your treats.

Cooking at temperatures below 340 F (177℃) are your best bet.

The best part about taking an edible is enjoying the company of friends. It’s an experience, meant to be shared with others. But, if you’re introverted, it’s totally fine to enjoy an edible by yourself. However, there’s something about that communal environment, something about having a long day at work and kicking back in your futon, and taking an edible with your good friends.

4 Perfect Ways To Treat Dry Skin

There are many ways to treat dry skin. You really don’t have to suffer with this issue all year round. By making a few small changes to my daily routine, I got rid of redness and my skin was no longer as flaky. It feels amazing.

Try out some of these ways to treat your dry skin and let us know what works best for you – I could always use a new trick.

 

1. Use A Humidifier

Using a humidifier is one of the easiest and best ways to help your skin stay hydrated and supple. During the winter months when the air is colder and we turn on our heater, the skin does not hold as much moisture as it does during the warmer months. Humidifiers infuse the air with moisture, soothing dried out, and itchy skin.

2. Lower Water Temperature When Taking A Shower

Lowering the temperature in your shower to a lukewarm temperature is more ideal for dry skin, especially when the temperature outside dips and there’s a temptation of taking scolding hot showers.

3. Use Natural And Organic Oils

You truly cannot have a better companion for your dry skin than many of the organic oils currently on the market. Many of these oils not only cater to all skin types but are also made of completely natural ingredients that contain specially nourishing botanicals and essential fatty acids that reduce inflammation and banish dryness. Gently rub some into your elbows, face, knees and anywhere else on your body that’s dry. Other versatile oils such as Argan oil and Barbary fig seed oil can also be used for the hair to soften your locks, reduce frizz and give your hair a natural shine.

4. Eat Lots Of Fresh Fruit. Your Skin Loves It

We’ve all heard the expression since childhood; “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Though apples are full of Vitamin C, Boron and Pectin, which boosts our immune system, support strong bones and lower both our blood pressure and glucose levels, the word apple was used to describe any round fruit that grew on a tree. Eating fruits and vegetables not only gives your body the nutrients and minerals it needs, but they also contain antioxidants which protect your skin from environmental damage and many have a high water content, which is ideal for skin hydration.…

PREMATURE AGING AND FREE RADICALS

Aging might be inevitable, but there are several factors that speeds up the aging process. The main factor is the rate at which free radicals bio-accumulate in our body. The free radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radicals over time.

What are free radicals and how can we go about preventing them?

Free radicals are broken atoms in our cells searching for electrons with which to bond. They can start a speedy chain reaction when oxygen interacts with the atoms. This matingprocess leads to cellular damage and premature aging of our skin.

A good example to visualize free radical activities in our body will be to slice an apple in half and watch it turn brown. The progressive brownish color is an indication of free radical activity due to the presence of oxygen. This whole process is called oxidation and to efficiently keep oxidation in check within our body, antioxidants are intimately involved.

Antioxidants are molecules that come from nature. They neutralize free radicals by donating their electrons to end the radical chain reaction’s domino effect. Our body cannot produce antioxidants so it is of utmost importance that we source antioxidant-rich nutrients in our foods, as well as our skin and hair care products.

Although research has proven that there are various enzymes in our body that can counteract free radical activities, scientists believe that antioxidants still remain the principal terminator of free radicals. Vitamin C, beta-carotene (Vitamin A), and Vitamin E are micro nutrient antioxidants.

Vitamin C:

These are natural ascorbic acids that are water-soluble and are present in citrus fruits, spinach, broccoli, kale, green peppers, kiwi, cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberries and blueberries.

Beta-carotene:

These vitamins are present in liver, egg yolk, milk, butter, spinach, broccoli, yams, tomato, peaches and grains. Beta-carotene is a precursor to Vitamin A.

Vitamin E:

These are fat-soluble vitamins that are present in nuts, seeds, vegetables and fish oils, whole grains, and fortified cereals. Vitamin E is known to contain the most abundant antioxidants and are highly effective at preventing and repairing free radical damage. Barbary fig seed oil contains more Vitamin E than any other oil available on the beauty care market.…

ARE YOU BRUSHING YOUR TEETH CORRECTLY?

You’ve reached adulthood and you probably feel like you definitely have a handle on your daily activities.

Getting to work on time? Check. Working out in the evenings? Check.  Brushing your teeth? Not so fast. Most of us never give it a second thought, but as it turns out, a huge number of adults brush their teeth incorrectly, putting their mouth at risk of tooth decay and preventable tooth erosion.

It’s not a science, but there is a technique to it.

It’s normal to hold your toothbrush at a 90° angle to your teeth, but that’s a big no-no since you are more likely to damage your gums this way. To properly brush your teeth, tilt the brush at a 45 angle away from the gum line and use a gentle circular motion, paying extra attention to the hard to reach areas around fillings, crowns and back teeth.

Can you spare 120 seconds for tooth brushing?

Proper brushing takes at least 2 minutes and most adults do not spend nearly as much time brushing their teeth each day. To properly remove cavity-causing bacteria, one should brush more than a minute at a time thoroughly cleaning each section as follows;

  1. Target the outer and inner surfaces of your upper teeth
  2. Clean the inner and outer surfaces of your lower teeth
  3. Gently clean the chewing surfaces
  4. Brush your tongue for fresher breath

Consider replacing your toothbrush

Old toothbrushes are ineffective and you should consider replacing your toothbrush every 3-6months. Your old toothbrush is like a disease magnate, especially after you’ve been sick since the bristles can collect germs that can lead to reinfection.
