CBD Versus CBD with THC: What You Need to Know

[Canniseur: I’ve been at a loss to figure out how we’ve missed the really great aspects of cannabis. One of those aspects (to me at any rate) has been the lack of concentration on CBD and THC in the same plant. They seem to be mutually exclusive, with buzzy THC and not-buzzy CBD never in […]

[Canniseur: Of course it does. CBD, CBG, THC (all of them) and all the other substances in cannabis help with anxiety. Time to get past all of the stigmas and realize that a good part of what we think we know is wrong…well, maybe not us, but much of the population although there are strong […]


CBD and Self-Care During Coronavirus

[Canniseur: It’s becoming evident that some of the compounds found in cannabis, if not a majority of them, are effective at alleviating symptoms of COVID-19.
