In many of our previous articles we have alluded to the ever-increasing variety of methods to medicate, which is why we here at CaliBloom are always scouring the market in search of the best new products to offer members of our collective. We are pleased to announce that we will begin offering our patients a few excellent new alternatives to best fit their needs.
The Venice Cookie Company’s Subtle Tea is a relaxing and enjoyable to way to consume your medical cannabis. The small individually packaged tea bags are easy to take on the go so no matter what time of day there will be a Subtle Tea to fit your needs. We are currently carrying two varieties; Sencha Green and and THC Dreamtime. Besides all of the benefits of cannabis, green tea is high in antioxidants , and offers a wide range of health benefits, such as supporting healthy complexions and boosted immunity. Lightly-caffeinated for that extra perk in the morning or afternoon, the Sencha Green variety is great for maintaining your energy level while alleviating stress.
THC Dreamtime consists of an aromatic blend that combines the soothing properties of chamomile, catnip, and peppermint into a calming bedtime elixir. Valerian is a traditional remedy for insomnia and other sleep problems, chamomile has relaxing properties, and peppermint also aids in healthy digestion. A perfect way to slow down when life gets too hectic. Caffeine free.
Each individual tea bag is medicated with .94 grams of cannabis with 40mg of THC. Patients may adjust the strength of the tea by controlling the time they steep it. The cannabis oils may cling to the tea bag, so cover your cup of hot tea and let it steep for 10-15 minutes to increase the potency. We’ve even heard of people that steep it for an hour or more–or even overnight!
Another way to increase the potency is to add milk or cream; dairy or non-dairy will work. Cannabis is lipophilic, which means the natural fats in the milk bind to the cannabinoids (THC, CBD, etc) so more potency is pulled from the tea. It helps your body’s absorption of the medicine!
The other new addition to the menu, also from our friends at the Venice Cookie Company, are the Cannabis Quenchers Fruit Sparks. A simple, tasty, and super-portable hard candy edible, Venice Fruit Sparks come in a twin pack so you customize your dose. Sublingual (allowing the candy to absorb under the tongue) absorption allows cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream more rapidly for faster relief. Each package of Quenchers contain 25mg THC, split into doses 12.5mg THC per piece.
With the tea varieties selling at $7 per bag and the Quenchers going for $5 apiece, these new products are affordable, effective, and ultra-portable . Try them out for yourself and let us know what you think!
