PSA: More moms would really love some weed for Mother's Day

The London Free Press

In exchange for the traditional flowers and breakfast in bed, more moms would happily accept a less conventional type of gift for Mother's Day this year. Despite the gender gap in the movement to legalize marijuana - 68% of men support legalization while only 56% of women do - we've got data that suggests many mothers feel pretty dang comfortable with the idea of a cannabis gift this year.

Top Apps For Cannabis Enthusiasts

As Canna-tech becomes a more widely recognized buzzword, we wanted to know more about what role tech is playing in the cannabis space. While some areas of tech are more focused on serving the industry, there are dozens of apps on the market that cater specifically to cannabis enthusiasts. Here we rounded up a few of our favourites.

The Weed Cookbook

WIth a bit of a stonervision vibe, this app contains a section devoted to the proper concocting of ganja butter, cannabis ghee, and hemp oil. The recipes provided call for these forms of THC infused fats to create a variety of edibles. It teaches you to first prepare a batch of grass-infused butter, which will not only allow for easier measurement, it will ensure that the THC blends evenly into each dish. Easy Mac & Cheese, for instance, calls for milk, 3 tablespoons of cannabutter, and one box of Kraft macaroni & cheese. Forty recipes are divided into four simple sections: drinks, meals, snacks, and sweets.

Releaf

Compiling a full spectrum of cannabis-user data, Releaf is a mobile app that combines pain-tracking, harm-reduction, technological solutions, and medical cannabis. The app allows the user to track the variance in effects elicited from different strains and the frequency and methods of consumption used to discover, track, and analyze what works best in treating their ailments.

The founders, who have been building apps and developing technological solutions for major brands for more than a decade, explain the user experience as an almost interactive smoke session. Using an emoticon-like rating system that users employ to report findings, the user is meant to update the app with responses and reporting while actively consuming medical cannabis. The pair hope cannabis users will use the Releaf app to monitor their intake and discover more about their experience through this tech.

Vapium

If you think the idea behind relief is cool, wait until you meet Vapium. It’s a vaporizer with a sophisticated tech built in, that measures details related to consumption, which you can track through the mobile app.

Vapium is a patient-centered vaporizer that’s also well suited for recreational consumers or anyone who wants to understand their own consumptive patterns. Based in Toronto, Vapium is a canna-tech company passionate about designing award-winning vaporizers that allow for the discreet, safe and responsible use for medical patients. Their vision was to create delivery systems that consider the conditions that qualify patients to vape and the obstacles they face when using said devices.

Created by a robotics engineer, the actual vape has 8 temperature adjustment settings and heats to reach the selected temperature in 45 seconds. This little technological gem acts as a buddy by your side with a vibrating pulse when the flower is ready to be inhaled. The phone app tracks the details of your vape sessions so you can know more about your consumptive patterns.

My Canary

Toted as the breathalyzer app for cannabis, My Canary is an app that has been designed and promoted by the cannabis activist group NORML. It aids the user in determining their level of inebriation to decide whether they are fit to drive a car. The app takes you through a series of sobriety tests, based on tests that have been used by law enforcement for decades, like the ability to balance on one foot, memorizing a series of numbers, and estimating time spans. Based on the combined results from all the tests, the app The app is designed to help users make the right decision about driving while high.

Hemp Inc.

If you’re a Farmville fan, Hemp Inc works on a broadly similar basis. The preface is that you can build “your very own cannabis empire.” The app explains that through choosing the correct strains, using top-notch talent, choosing the latest equipment and competitive pricing, you can achieve your dreams of becoming the top reputable cannabis company.

Through the app, you can interact with celebrities who are advocates of cannabis, like Snoop Dogg, Tommy Chong, and Jimi Hendrix. The app covers all facets of managing a marijuana empire, which includes growing, selling and operating a cannabis business.

420Clock

Here’s an app that might make you laugh. 420Clock tracks 4:20 in 35 different time zones, with a mood that’s reminiscent of the stoner version of Margaritaville. After all, it’s 420 Somewhere. What is it’s basic function? An alarm clock: the app lets you set up alerts, so you will never have to miss out on a single 4:20. One of the beauties of tracking 4:20 in different time zones is that it allows you to toke up throughout the day with other cannabis lovers around the globe.

High There!

Move over Bumble, Tinder and all the dating apps that don’t promote finding someone to get high with. Designed by Todd Mitchem, High There! Is a dating app for cannabis users that was inspired after Todd noticed that even living in a state where cannabis is legal, people would still dismiss potential matches the minute they found out someone smoked. If you are looking for that special someone on High There! The founder likes to say: "it's the best way to weed-out miss wrong."

Weedmaps

WeedMaps was founded in 2008 and has carved out a place in the cannabis industry. One of the most heavily downloaded apps in the cannabis space, it covers experts, dispensaries, delivery, and medical services. You will be asked to share your exact location when you first log into the app, then you’ll be shown the closest dispensaries and will be able to search dispensaries by products and brands.

Now that you know a few of our faves we'd love to know what are your favourite cannabis apps?

    The Vapium app sounds really cool. I have a PAX 3, which can also be controlled by an app, however I don't believe the app has any functionality to track my consumption.. that would be a really helpful feature though!

Canada's roadside drug tests can't tell the difference between tea and cocaine

420 Intel

The reliability of Canada's only federally approved device for roadside cannabis impairment testing has been thrown into question after a Vancouver lawyer determined the device is easily duped, writes Calvin Hughes. While preparing to roll out cannabis legalization in October of 2018, the Canadian government introduced a new roadside cannabis impairment testing device called the Dräger DrugTest 5000.

Retailers Struggle To Keep CBD On Shelves

At the Niagara Falls 420 Expo, I had the opportunity to chat with the guys and gals at the PotAway booth (check out the JADEO 420 Expo video to see the demo). They were selling sprays that could eliminate the smell of cannabis in the air and on surfaces as well. I was super intrigued after the demonstration and bought a small bottle. I am absolutely pleased with the product, I've used to it to eliminate the scent in rooms within my house, and the scent does disappear within seconds. Great if you have kids or people in your household who are affected by the scent.

The 4-Letter word that could prevent U.S. marijuana legalization

420 Intel

Will the U.S. legalize marijuana? Although 33 states have legalized medical cannabis and 10 have also legalized recreational pot, marijuana remains illegal at the federal level. But legislation is moving through the U.S. Congress that would change federal laws to recognize individual states' authority to enforce their own marijuana laws.

Women in Cannabis Wednesday: Edition 10 - Jacqui Childs

If you're familiar with the Canadian Cannabis industry at all, then you know the name Jacqui Childs. She has made quite the name for herself as a best-selling author, entrepreneur, and a top influencer in the cannabis industry by sharing her personal journey cannabis. Here Jacqui discusses with the JADEO team what influenced her move into the industry and how cannabis plays a great role in her creative and self-care routines.

How did you get your start in the cannabis industry?

My father in law saw how unwell I always was, and knew I was on dozens of pharmaceuticals. He asked me to try some cbd oil for a few weeks.

I was privately weaning off pharmaceuticals. The withdrawal was apparently very evident.

Within weeks I was better, not great but better. I began juicing raw leaves. Bathing in CBD bath-bombs. And using suppositories. Although not cured. I was hooked. I felt better and I felt calm for the first time in so many years.

Based on your experiences what do you love most about working in the cannabis industry?

I love that I can be me. Share my journey and actually be celebrated. I get we're not always going to agree. And that's ok. My journey is about health and wellness. It's been pretty amazing to spend time with inspiring people and call that "work" The #womeninweed movement is strong and loud. I'm very happy to be a part of doing good and spreading kindness.

Do you think legalization has helped with reducing the stigma around cannabis?

Perhaps a tad. Lol. There's definitely lots of work to be done as far as ending the stigma. It will definitely take all of us from all markets to stay focused on the greater good. Helping to end the stigma will take time. We need to continue to share positive stories with all of those around us. I understand no one wants to be uncomfortable or judged but unfortunately, that's how the stereotypes and stigmas will end. Being uncomfortable and really honest isn't easy, but very necessary.

How do you personally feel women influence the industry?

I personally feel women influence the industry in such a positive and real way.

They're nurturers by nature. They can be soft and strong. Their ideas and points of view are so needed. Mother nature is "female" right? Women are at the forefront of this movement as caretakers and household decision makers.

I would like to add, it will take all of us men AND women, we must come together and create positive lasting change.

You're a mom, do you feel like mothers in particular face a double standard when it comes to cannabis use?

Wow, this question fires me up. Yes, definitely. Women, mothers are in fear of losing their children. Being judged and ostracized. If your child was sick and you believed you had a way to help them but you could have them taken from you. It's a scary and sad place to be. While going through divorces or falling out with family. Moms are threatened and attacked in courts and by family because of their cannabis use.

Losing a child to the opioid crisis right now would be absolutely devastating, when we know there is a solution. I guess we could discuss this more over a couple of bottles of wine and a Xanax.


You're also a best -selling author, is cannabis a part of your creative process?

Cannabis is most definitely apart of my creative process. I need internal calm and quiet to focus. I must be ego free to share my authentic self with my audience. I'm not afraid to show who I am and admit my mistakes. That's when true magic and art takes life when I'm most vulnerable and open. For me, cannabis and plant-based medicine is always part of the process.. even now😉 🌱

How does cannabis play a role in your self-care routine?

Cannabis is my self-care. It's natural. I can feel good about using her in all her beauty. CBD oil is used in and on every part of me. I feel better when I sleep better. Now that I'm a little older self-care means, rest and calm. That's beautiful, that's self-care.

What advice do you have for women who want to get started in the industry?

Start. Now. Today would be a great time. With legalization so new, you haven't missed a thing. There's room for all of us. We need people from different industries and all walks of life. If you're at home thinking about what's missing from the industry or what you think you could do better. Do it! I recently was asked if I thought there was enough focus on menopause and aging, sex and cannabis after 45, the women asking was very passionate and excited about these topics. I responded to her with... " it really matters what you think and if you think it's under-addressed, perhaps you just found your calling and a space for yourself in the cannabis industry."

The time is now ladies, we're making history. Let's acknowledge the past, learn from our mistakes and do better. We're all in this together. ✌️
