Sorry, but high-THC flower is overrated.

The other day, I was driving in a car with a friend who had just gone to a dispensary, and as a cannabis journalist, people often ask my opinion on their buys. He handed me the jar and boasted that the flower tested at an astronomical 35% THC.  Examining the dense, mechanically trimmed buds that smelled like hay, I had two choices:  1: Dominate the …

We Tried It: Cookies CBD Flower Review

I am that perennial THC aficionado for whom hemp flowers can often fly under the radar. Despite expertise that informs me otherwise, packing a bowl with hemp nugs can feel counterintuitive. I often feel like my familiarity with cannabis is inextricable from my experience with THC, and that smoking cannabis should consistently result in some manner …

Do cannabinoids from topicals enter the bloodstream?

Lorena Cupcake, voted “best budtender in Chicago” in 2019, has answered hundreds of questions from cannabis shoppers and patients during their time as a budtender. And now they’re turning that experience into a monthly advice column, Ask a Budtender. Got a question for Cupcake? Submit your questions to askabudtender@weedmaps.com.   Dear Cupcake, Do you know if cannabinoid-infused topicals, such as Papa & Barkley‘s topical, go into your bloodstream? I’m asking for my sister who works for the government. She has a lot of physical aches and they want her to do surgery but she would rather experiment with different products. — Concerned Sister Dear Concerned Sister, Before I answer your question, I want to cover a few points I hope we all agree with. Drug testing for cannabis and other drugs is wildly inaccurate, based on false premises and applied inequitably among members of the workforce. Rather than accurately weeding out unfit workers, drug testing is just another means of hyper-surveillance and hiring discrimination used against the working class. With popular track star Sha’Carri Richardson recently suspended from competition in advance of the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for cannabis use, there’s been an increase in conversation calling out drug testing as yet another racist relic of the war on drugs. This is so infuriating. Overwhelming majority of Americans support marijuana legalization. It is already legal in 18 states and DC. Yet Sha’Carri Richardson has her victory invalidated because of a positive test. This is madness. https://t.co/vFx3gVlxEF — Udi Ofer (@UdiACLU) July 2, 2021 I’m sorry, I can’t be y’all Olympic Champ this year but I promise I’ll be your World Champ next year 🤞🏽⚡️. — Sha’Carri Richardson (@itskerrii) July 4, 2021 While I’m not convinced of the real-world utility of testing anyone for cannabis, I can understand the trepidation when it comes to potentially failing a random drug test. While everyone’s body metabolizes and eliminates THC at different rates, someone who smokes multiple times a day may have their drug use detected on a urine screening up to one month after putting down the pipe. While the actual time elapsed […]
