TheHotCase - A Product Review

Written by: Brianne Campbell


TheHotCase claims that their cases are not only OPP compliant, but also waterproof, smell-proof, and indestructible - so we decided to put these handy cases to the test! (Before we begin, JADEO members get 15% off TheHotCase with the promo code HotJadeo)

I have spent the past week carrying the medium slim case. This discreet box has a practical outdoorsy vibe to it. At first, I was thinking I would prefer it in a different colour, but this sturdy black case has grown on me. The fact that the case is black is exactly what makes it so very discreet. After carrying the medium slim TheHotCase in my gym bag for the past week, nobody has asked me what it is or picked up on the smell of cannabis locked inside!

TheHotCase Medium Slim
TheHotCase Medium Slim - $30

I’ve been using TheHotCase to carry around rolled spliffs and a crystal pipe. At 11.9 cm long, 7.4 cm wide, and 4.5 cm tall, the medium slim case is the perfect size for my stash. I have carried a small pipe, a gram of dried flower, rolling papers, a lighter, and a couple of joints, and eyedrops inside it all at once. Because these cases are OPP compliant for transporting cannabis in a vehicle, I can finally bring a joint on the go without having to throw my whole purse in my trunk! I used to be very nervous driving with any cannabis in my car, but this case has given me peace of mind.

I am loving the fact that this case is super lightweight, yet so durable. At only $30 for the medium slim size, these cases are also great value for what you get! There is no logo or branding on TheHotCase products, so these cases are super discreet. As an athlete, I can totally see myself using the medium slim case for items other than cannabis and accessories. I can put my phone and car keys inside it when I’m training. Plus the convenient strap means it’s easy to carry if you have your hands full.

TheHotCase Medium Slim
TheHotCase Medium Slim - Inside:11.9 x 7.4 x 4.5 cm

The inside of the case is also soft, so even if you don’t have the foam in, you won’t need to worry about the contents getting damaged bouncing around. The foam insert that comes with every TheHotCase is a total game changer though! I don’t have to worry about my pre-rolls getting crushed in my purse and I can actually bring my cute pipe out of my house without worrying about breaking it.

These cases are a little difficult to open if you have nails of any sort (like me). They also only come in only one colour so far. I can see the handle possibly wearing out with heavy use, but that can easily be swapped out for a more durable handle or a thin carabineer clip.

This product would make a lot of sense for any cannabis consumer that is looking for a solution to legally carry cannabis inside their vehicle, pack breakable accessories for travelling or shipping, or simply keep their stash out of the hands of children.

What I LOVE about these cases is that you can use your own lock. That means you can use a lock and key, or a combination lock. Many storage cases come with their own lock system (usually a combination lock), so this is a big plus for me! I can be forgetful with combination numbers so I like that I have the option to choose my own lock.

Some alternatives to these cases would be Pelican’s small cases or OtterBox’s waterproof Drybox. While Pelican seems to offer similar products in terms of durability, I wouldn’t use them for carrying cannabis as Pelican’s smaller cases have clear plastic sides. OtterBox’s Drybox is not lockable, so they wouldn’t be truly childproof to hide your stash.

All in all, I really like TheHotCase in the medium slim size and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, portable solution for storing cannabis and accessories.

The Pros:

  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Discreet (no branding)
  • Multipurpose
  • Lockable
  • Padded interior
  • Smell-proof
  • Child-proof
  • Can legally bring cannabis in my car -available in many different sizes

The Cons:

  • Difficult to open
  • Only comes in black (so far)

TheHotCase has gerously offered JADEO members a 15% discount on all cases. Check out TheHotCase Shop and use the promo code HotJadeo for 15% off!

    I saw some ads posted to Facebook and Instagram for this, so I filled out the application they linked to.

Valentine's Day Canna-Gift Guide

Cannabis has been a long time enjoyed accompaniment to sensuality and connection. Our team has been sussing out the best valentines gifts in the cannabis space exclusively for JADEO readers. Read on to discover our top 5 Valentines Gifts to enhance this year’s celebration of love.

GET HIP IN THE KITCHEN

Do It Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box - $17.17

Do It Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box

It’s a tricky time for edibles in advance of legalization, but while we wait for the legal framework to open up the market, we can still enjoy cannabis edibles if we create them ourselves.

This Do it Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box is a gift you may have never dreamed existed but could be the perfect fit for that special someone who loves to get creative in the kitchen or is passionate about edibles. Each box contains cooking instructions, dosing recommendations, cooking utensils, ingredients, and THC/CBD extraction supplies necessary for cooking homemade vegan and gluten-free edibles.

The recipes you receive are meant to make cooking with cannabis “as easy as buttering bread.” Mmm! The box includes everything you need to get started, just add the recommended amount of legally purchased dried Cannabis to the recipe.

MOVE OVER BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE

Body Oil from The Great Canadian Hemp Company (aka organic sex lube) - $54

Great Canadian Hemp Company Balance Body Oil

Balance body oil blend is a sweet almond and apricot kernel oil combined with organic essential oils that are uniquely blended for their skin invigorating properties, as well as their aromatherapeutic benefits. The oils in the combination have a calming effect and promote stillness, creativity, and emotional balance which can accompany lovemaking or self-pleasure within a base of oils which are suited as organic sex lube as well.

We liked hearing the personal testimonial from The Great Canadian Hemp Company’s Co-founder Melissa L’Heureux-Hache: “I can't express how much I love this body oil. It comes with me everywhere! Most oils make you feel greasy, but this one absorbs really quickly and you only need to use a little. It also smells like heaven :)”

She went on to explain how although it isn’t specifically marketed for use in the bedroom it is perfectly suited for sex and superior to other, synthetic lubes on the market: “Maybe it’s just me, but conventional lubes are unappealing - they don’t have a natural texture and most are based with synthetic chemicals that I don’t want on my body, let alone in my body. The last thing I’d want would be to taste synthetic blueberry cheesecake while making love with my partner!”

SEX UP ALL THE DETAILS

Sexpot by Nox X Allume - $65

Sexpot by Nox & Allume

Nox shop is an online sex toy shop who has teamed up with female-founded, Montreal-based cannabis accessory online shop Allume. The two brands teamed up for a special 'Sexpot' edition of Allume’s monthly Chill Box for February.

Their shop has released a special Valentine’s section with a collection of herbal bath bombs to enhance pleasure in our self-care rituals or shared bath experiences;)

We chose the sativa bomb, which was designed to be the perfect morning bomb. The term "sativa" comes from 4,000-year-old Sanskrit terms meaning "daytime" and "nighttime." Handcrafted with organic, lab-tested plant extract and sage, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils, the invigorating oils partner with sea salt to reduce stress and increase blood circulation in the body.

Please not all prices are quoted in Canadian dollars.

My Blue Dream

I by no means consider myself I canna-connoisseur I'm experimenting like any other canna-curious individual out there. However, the one piece of advice that I have taken to heart is to explore the various strains and the effect they have on me personally (as strains can affect each individual differently).

Thus far, I've had the pleasure of trying out "Girl Scout Cookies", "Sour Diesel", and most recently "Blue Dream"

Every strain has its time and place, but I have to admit that "Blue Dream" has been my favourite thus far. Blue Dream is said to be a Sativa dominant hybrid. After vaping it I experienced an unreal amount of focus for a few hours. I was focused in a way I have rarely experienced in my life...LASER FOCUS. I also found it really got my creative juices flowing. I am admittedly a natural creative, but again it had me in this zone of extreme creativity that I rarely experience. Overall, I felt relaxed, calm and extremely productive.

To be fair, I'll also share a quick review of my experience with other two strains mentioned earlier. Sour Diesel (a sativa) I would say is my second favourite. It made me feel relaxed yet, energized at the same time and was an overall good feeling.I found it was great for daytime use when I need to be alert. While Girl Scout Cookie (Indica dominant Hybrid) left me feeling quite relaxed, and often made me sleepy. I generally would use this shortly before bed.

What strains have you used? How did they make you feel?

Related comments

  • From Connor Christine

    Blue Dream is actually one of the only strains I trust. I use the word trust because the way it makes me feel is consistent. I know that I will feel motivated, in the zone, and ready to get stuff done!!! Thanks for sharing Janelle :)

  • From Lindsay Le Blanc

    I love deconstructing strain names to consider their origins - my favourite indica is blueberry which is one of the parents of blue dream:)

  • From Kenneth Joaquin

    Recently, I used Buddha Haze. Probably not a strain I would go back to, as it made me feel like time was moving very slowly. I felt like I could think faster than my body could act--kind of a trance. I will definitely give Blue Dream a try to experience something similar to yours!

Lack of Communication about Medical Marijuana Use between Doctors and Their Patients

Introduction: Medical marijuana is now permitted in most states, but it is not clear whether primary care physicians (PCPs) are aware of or recommend its use in their patients.

Methods: We distributed paired surveys to PCPs and their patients to assess the frequency of patient marijuana use and communication with PCPs about use.

Results: Of 242 patients surveyed, 22% reported marijuana use in the past 6 months, and 61% of these identified as medical marijuana users. PCPs did not complete state forms to recommend medical marijuana for any of the surveyed medical marijuana users. PCPs were aware of marijuana use in their patients only 53% of the time. PCPs identified conditions they believed could be adversely affected by marijuana use in 31% of users.

Conclusion: There is poor communication between patients and PCPs about medical marijuana use, which is being sanctioned by physicians other than patients' PCPs. We suggest more frequent assessment of and discussion about marijuana use in patients, particularly in states that have approved medical marijuana.

About 2% of orders had their information accessed by an individual. Information accessed includes postal codes, the name or initials of the person who signed for the order upon delivery, the date of delivery, the OCS reference number and the Canada Post tracking number.

The delivery address, payment information and contents of the order were not accessed, the OCS said.

“Since November 1, the OCS has worked closely with Canada Post to identify the cause of this issue and to prevent any further unauthorized access to customer delivery information,” CEO Patrick Ford said in the letter.

In a statement released to CityNews, Canada Post acknowledged the breach, saying “both organizations have been working closely together since that time to investigate and take immediate action.

“As a result, important fixes have been put in place by both organizations to prevent any further unauthorized access to customer information.

“We have also shared with OCS that we are confident that the customer who accessed the information only shared it with Canada Post and deleted it without distributing further.”

This breach affects approximately 4500 customers and deals another hard blow to the Ontario Cannabis Store which has been riddled with stock and fulfillment issues since day one.

Microdosing: The Benefits, The Risks and How it Works

Written by Janelle Powell


Generally, when you hear about the cannabis industry, a lot of the discussion circles around recreational use and getting high. Yet, there is a whole other side to cannabis use that excludes the high that's becoming a growing trend. This is where microdosing comes in.

What is Microdosing and How Does it Work?

Microdosing is based on the concept of using the most minimal amount of THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis, to reap the medical benefits of cannabis. The concept of microdosing is the idea that less is most definitely more. Low doses can deliver one effect while high doses can bring upon the opposite effect. Using smaller doses of THC allows the body to enjoy the amazing health benefits of cannabis without the effect of getting high.

The concept of microdosing is not a new one, this practice has become more widespread in the 21st century. Microdosing gained traction a few years ago with the drug LSD. Psychedelic microdosing is a practice to use sub-threshold doses of psychedelic drugs in an attempt to improve creativity and focus, boost energy level, attain emotional balance and to help with depression and addiction. The long-term effects of dosing LSD came under fire and is surrounded by controversy as it is illegal and can be dangerous.

For cannabis however, the sub-therapeutic microdose is unlikely to produce whole-body effects, but rather effects the body on a cellular level. Although microdosing is most commonly associated with THC, addition of CBD in equal ratio can be beneficial and the combination tends to give a wider therapeutic window. CBD can also be used solely, however it is more expensive than THC products and should be avoided during the evening as it can act as a mental stimulant.

What are the Benefits of Microdosing?

The cannabis microdosing method can help increase mental focus, improve creativity, aid in sleeping habits and elevate mood. Additionally, due to the medical benefits gained through controlled consumption, it is being used to treat many conditions such as:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Pain associated with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis
  • Inflammation
  • Gastrointestinal disturbances
  • Insomnia
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder)
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

What Method Should I Use?

There are various methods of microdosing. The most popular is smoking, but it has been found to be the most expensive with the least control over dosage unless it's vapour. Vaping allows microdosing accuracy, is less wasteful as it extracts cannabis compounds more efficiently and is a cleaner experience because it doesn't contain the harmful carcinogens of smoking. Edibles are also common but caution should be exercised as dosage ranges between products, and intensity and onset of effects may vary between individuals. Oils and tinctures are also an alternative to smoking and are becoming increasingly popular.

How Much Should I Microdose?

There is no universal way or standard amount to microdose. However, there are many arguments about what the right dose is. While some will say 5-10mg of THC, others recommend an even lower dose at 2.5mg. There are also some products on the market that are CBD dominant so they contain very little or no THC at all. The reality is microdosing is extremely personal, as each individual can respond uniquely to dose amounts of THC and/or CBD for a variety of factors.

“The goal is to use the dose that gives the most minimal noticeable effect,”

says Dustin Sulak osteopathic physician who uses low-dose cannabis treatments for his patients. The main takeaway here is that with microdosing slow and steady definitely wins the race. Start small and work your way up.

The Risks of Microdosing

While microdosing is a great concept, it does have its risks particularly with the use of edibles. Some brands don't offer edibles with smaller doses of THC or don't provide detailed labeling that lists the volume of THC per portion size, which can make it difficult to estimate potency per bite, especially for microdosing.

There is, however a huge trend growing for cannabis microdosing and products are emerging that offer an accurate microdose of THC and/or CBD. From 2.5mg of THC per serving to 5mg and 10mg, cannabis infused products are appearing in legal places around North America. These products include mints, gummies, teas, oils, tinctures, honey sticks, granola squares and even bite-sized chocolates.

Another drawback of microdosing with edibles is the delayed reaction to the THC. Many users will assume that the dose wasn’t strong enough because they can’t immediately feel any effect. As a result, they increase the dose, which leads to accidentally taking too large of a dose when in actual fact the original dose was enough. Be sure to stick to the dose recommended by your physician.

Trends and Takeaways

While microdosing has made substantial headway in the arena of health as a treatment option for specific conditions, it also serves another purpose outside of its medicinal benefits. Many have turned to microdosing for professional and personal reasons. Small doses of THC is believed to increase creativity and mental focus so many use it as a way to be increasingly productive at work and for overall wellness, without the risk of the stigma associated with cannabis and being high.

The takeaway here is that microdosing is intended to be a safe and healthy way to reap the physical and mental benefits that cannabis has to offer. Proponents of microdosing hope that one day it will become so normalized it will be viewed in a similar manner as taking daily multivitamins. As always, if contemplating using cannabis as a medical treatment please consult with a doctor to determine if it is the right path for you.

Remember to always consult your doctor before beginning any type of wellness treatment.

Smart And Safe Storage Ideas For Your Cannabis

Cannabis packaging in Canada is standardized for your safety by Health Canada. That does not mean you can't take extra care for safety and longevity of your products. 

1. Store Your Products Away From Pets and Children

This is a no-brainer.  We all need to work together to keep pets and children safe.  First, keep all cannabis in the original packages you receive them in. Why? Health Canada has created those labels for your safety.   You will also want to store any cannabis products out of reach of tiny hands or paws. You may want to even invest in child-safety locks (or real locks, in case of youth and teens) on drawers and/or cupboards where you store your cannabis.  Further, it's a great idea if you are purchasing air-tight containers to further product your products, that you look for one that has child-safety in mind.  

2. Store Your Products in Cool Temperatures

Temperature is extremely important in the storage of cannabis. Similar to a fine wine, It is best aged in cool, dry and dark places. If the temperature is too warm the heat can cause essential oils and nutrients run to dry out, which can affect the potency and also provide a harsh smoking experience. While too much moisture can create a perfect environment for bacteria and mold to grow on your cannabis. Keep in mind that organic matter like mold and mildew thrive in temperatures of 25C to 30C so you ideally want to keep your cannabis in temperatures below this. 

3. Keep Your Cannabis Out of Direct Sunlight/UV Rays

As many of us are already aware, the UV rays in sunlight have a negative breakdown a number of materials and direct exposure generally has a negative impact on most things in its way. The same is true for the impact that UV rays have on cannabis. A study conducted at the University of London in the 1970sconcluded that light was the single biggest factor in the degradation of cannabinoids. The same study also concluded that when stored under the proper condition cannabinoids can maintain stability for up to two years, though it can remain effective and safe to consume for a longer period of time as the essential oils tend to slowly break down over time. It is also important to note that storing your cannabis out of direct light will also help you control the temperature (which as mentioned before also affects the freshness and quality).

4. Store Your Cannabis in an Air Tight Container

While oxygen is super important while growing the plant, controlling the level of oxygen after it is harvested is extremely important. Too much oxygen can quicken the degradation of the cannabinoids, which will negatively impact its medicinal benefits. The best way to ensure too much oxygen doesn’t access your medical cannabis is to get yourself a high-quality air-tight storage container. A great option is Canadian brand Club Four20 as a part of the specially curated “Cannabis Kits” offers top of the line, scent proof, airtight, pharma grade, glass cannabis container (14 Gram Capacity). An additional benefit is that the container is also childproof. This ensures that children are unable to access your medical cannabis which provides added security for safe storage within your home.

If you are storing medical cannabis within your home please always ensure that it is within a childproof container, and stored out of reach of the children within your home.

    I think most importantly we need to break down the stigma of what cannabis consumption actually is / does. I'm not advocating for taking bong rips at red lights, but heavy users are going to be unfairly targeted by any kind of blood test. We're looking at past experience with alcohol and trying to apply the same rules, alcohol is not cannabis. Cannabis is much more, and far less dangerous in residual concentration.

  • From Connor Christine

    People need to make smart decisions when it comes to driving under the influence. Is it really necessary you get behind the wheel when you consume ANYTHING that could affect your ability to drive.. EVEN NyQuil- never mind the dangers of alcohol and being high. And if you don't care about yourself getting from point A to B please think of all of the cars around you, and who might be in them(children, grandparents, a single mother of 4, a dad on his way home). Keep the roads safe, if you need to get somewhere there are SO many alternative options!!!!

Understanding Consumption Methods: Smoking to Edibles

Disclaimer: It's illegal to buy, possess or use cannabis for anything other than authorized medical or research purposes prior to Oct 17, 2018.


As someone who's decided to try cannabis to help manage pain or other illness, there isn't any better time to find a wide variety of products. This is good news for you if you have some health problems and want alternatives to how you consume cannabis.

Not all consumption methods are viable for cannabis users. What methods are available now, though? Since the last time you looked, other choices have probably gone mainstream.

Let's look at six specific types of cannabis consumption methods and their pros and cons.

Smoking Cannabis

Even you may remember doing this if you're old enough to have lived in the 1960s during the Counterculture Movement. Maybe you moved here to Canada from the U.S. to avoid the Vietnam War in those days, leading to a lifelong residency.

Cannabis was big in those days, but it was still illegal. Now with cannabis legalized here in Canada later this year, you have the choice to smoke cannabis freely.

Most studies show smoking cannabis gives you a psychoactive effect within minutes. In this regard, you can say smoking cannabis gives you the fastest results of any current method available. Yet, if your lungs can't hack smoke, it's obviously not the best choice.

Also, you have the problem of smoking around other people who don't want to contend with second-hand smoke in their vicinity.

Smoking products still range from classic joints to blunts.

Vaping

The vaping method of consuming cannabis has become one of the most popular. While it's a bit similar to smoking, it heats the cannabis rather than burns it. For those with lung sensitivity, this is often considered a better option.

Debates still rage, though, about whether vaping is really a healthier alternative to the smoking method. Vape pens are now very small, allowing you to consume cannabis without creating a large smoke cloud. 

Tinctures

Cannabis tinctures, commonly referred to as green or golden dragon, are alcohol-based cannabis extracts. Arguably the most convenient method available for cannabis is tinctures. It's also the fastest method available for receiving medicinal benefits next to smoking.

It's actually one of the oldest cannabis consumption methods, going back more than 90 years in usage before cannabis prohibition began.

In liquid form, you'll feel results in about 15 minutes. 

Dabbing

A more recent consumption method is dabbing, which gives quite a powerful dose to those taking cannabis for medicinal purposes.

For dabbing, you're heating a small amount of cannabis concentrate, which is known as a "dab." You do this on a hot surface where it creates a strong vapour to inhale.

The method often involves a blowtorch, so it might seem crude. Thanks to an increase potency, it's worth it to those who want a fast pain reliever.

Topicals

Being able to apply cannabis like a skin cream is becoming a very popular way to consume without smoking or inhaling. If all of the above are perhaps too complicated for you, simply using a topical system will still give you a fast effect.

Best of all, these are used for localized pain relief on your body. You'll be able to find these in lotions and even patches. Just be sure to wash your hands before applying a topical product.

Edibles or Infusion

No doubt you've already heard some about edibles. Cannabis edibles are food products that have been infused with cannabinoids - mostly commonly THC. Nearly any food product can be infused. Popular types of edibles are desserts and snacks, but you're seeing an emergence of regular meals and even beverages being infused. To consume you simply eat/digest a portion of the infused food item. Do keep in mind that the onset of the "high" in edibles is delayed when compared to other consumption methods. 

If you do choose to use edibles please use extreme caution and store them out of reach of children as they do pose a medical threat. 


Remember to always consult your doctor before beginning any type of wellness treatment.
