Strain Review: Cinderella’s Dream aka Cindy’s Dream

Published

on

Hybrid

When Cinderella sang “A dream is a wish your heart makes” she was referring to this Sativa dominant strain. With the euphoric, dream-like state it puts you in, Cinderella’s dream has relaxing effects while also making you chatty and pleasant to be around in social settings. It boosts your mood, relaxes you, and makes you feel like you don’t have a worry in the world. I imagine it being similar to how Cinderella felt arriving at the ball… before she lost her shoe and was stranded on the side of the road with a pumpkin.

According to some reviewers, Mango can have slight psychedelic effects, put you in a trance of deep relaxation, and also brings you feelings of euphoria and contentment.

Birds of Paradise Marijuana Strain

All you need to know about The Birds of Paradise cannabis strain. Find out everything from the flavor and aroma profile to medical benefits and potent high.

Published

on

All you need to know about The Birds of Paradise cannabis strain. Find out everything from the flavor and aroma profile to medical benefits and potent high.

Birds of Paradise weed is a balanced hybrid strain that has all the sensory appeal just as its vivid name promises. This plant was created from a cross between a Kali Snapple female and a Blue Heron male plant. This epic combination is brought to us by the geniuses at Dynasty Genetics. The result is a vibrant and colorful bud with a strong tropical scent, and it gives an impressively long-lasting high. Birds of Paradise strain has a THC content that has been measured at between 18% and 24%. The Birds of Paradise strain is a great all-purpose smoke, whether you’re smoking alone or sharing with a group of friends. It has a great tropical flavor profile making this strain worth seeking out for terpene lovers.

Like their namesakes, the flowers of Birds of Paradise will catch your eye immediately. These buds have a medium to large size and have quite a roughly conical shape that tapers from a broad base into a sharp pointy tip. This plant’s leaves come in an array of acute pale green to blue to pastel purple. The leaves curl densely inward going toward their central stems, this strain’s buds have a mostly Indica appearance. The bright orange pistils twist all the way through these beautiful flowers and they have a high concentration of frosted white trichomes covering all the visible nooks and crannies.

When cured, the flowers of Birds of Paradise have a fruity citrus scent, with some discernible notes of pineapple and orange. At closer inspection, you may also pick up on some herbal notes as well. When the large flowers are broken apart or when they ground up, they give off more of a skunky odor. Blazing the Birds of Paradise strain yields an impressively smooth and tasty smoke that is pretty easy on the lungs. On the exhale, the smoke tastes fruity with a surprising, slightly nutty finish.

The Birds of Paradise strain takes flight as soon as users have smoked its delicious smoke. Some initial signs of this strain’s properties include redness on the cheeks and slightly increased blood pressure around the lower forehead and temples. As Birds of Paradise strain smokers become more used to these strange sensations, there are some changes in their thinking that fast become apparent. Otherwise mundane concepts and even objects can take on a new interesting fascination and refreshing complexity. Also, a chain of free associations might bring up unexpected associations amongst seemingly disparate ideas. If you are so inclined, the cerebral mindset may be a great way to get good work done on both open-ended personal and complicated tasks and projects. When you have the Birds of Paradise strain shared in a social setting, this intense mental energy may result in awesome chatty vibes, friendly, even among strangers.

As a Birds of Paradise strain high wears on, some more sedated effects start to rise to the surface. Smokers may feel some waves of relaxation emanating through their core and limbs. This effect results in getting relief from any troubling knots and muscular tension. Users who may have been doing some sort of physical labor may find themselves significantly slowing down, while people who are already relaxed in a comfortable environment may start to lose some steam. In high doses, Birds of Paradise cannabis can even put tired consumers to sleep. As a result of its slow decline in energy, this weed strain is recommended for a good unwinding afternoon or evening blaze.

This is a recreationally versatile cannabis strain, the Birds of Paradise strain can also have wide application for medical marijuana patients. It has a focused cerebral onset that can be a great concentration help for people attention deficit disorders. the improved mood might also temporarily distract you from the symptoms of mild to moderate depression and stress. In terms of physical effects, Birds of Paradise strain can act as an analgesic for all types of physical pain, whether it is related to chronic diseases or temporary inflammation to conditions like arthritis or Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). As we have mentioned before, this hybrid strain can even be a good way of treating insomnia, it can lull relaxed smokers into a proper deep sleep. Its mental buzz can aggravate paranoia in people who are prone to anxiety and panic. If this describes you, we suggest taking a very limited dosage.

Unfortunately for people who are looking to grow this cannabis strain at home, Birds of Paradise seeds are not available for purchase online. Instead, prospective growers should seek out a mature plant of the weed strain from which to take clippings. These clippings can be fostered as clones then they can be grown either outdoors or indoors in a hot, humid climate. While the specific best practices for growing this pot strain are hard to get your hands on, its Indica-dominant buds suggest that the plants grow bushy and short and may need occasional pruning. The strain’s Indica properties also mean it has a relatively short flowering time of between 8 and 9 weeks.

Keef Cola Makes Cannabis Consumption Social

Published

on

The original THC infused soda pop company, Keef Cola was founded in Boulder Colorado by Erik Knutson. His award-winning traditional sodas allow you to enjoy the effects of cannabis in the beverage form. Keef Cola is revolutionizing the beverage and cannabis industries, allowing it to be consumed socially. Consumers love the superb quality while enjoying the nostalgic feel of the staple fountain drink. It was the first company to allow both canna-curious and experienced consumers can enjoy a high-grade beverage and have a positive experience in the cannabis culture and community.

Since 2010, the company has expanded from Colorado to California, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Washington, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. Keef Cola ’s footprint in the market is strong; products are carried in over 400 dispensaries in Colorado, over 150 dispensaries in California, over 95 dispensaries in Arizona, with distribution continuing to explode.

In addition to the soda line, Keef Cola has also launched cannabis-infused energy drinks, cannabis-infused sparkling water, and developed Keef Carts oil cartridges and Keef Stix oil pens. Keef’s cartridge and pen lines only use natural oils, ceramic cartridges, the C-Cell technology, and leak-proof design to provide an extremely user-friendly design.

Knutson works with The Cannabis Trade Federation to help lobby on CBD and THC to ensure that safe help products can be distributed for the mainstream consumer. Once the FDA pushes out new regulations, there will be a big push from distributors to get even more hemp products to market. Knutson said that his goal is to bring a social climate to cannabis. Unlike traditional cannabis products, Keef Cola’s products create a social experience to enjoy cannabis.

In Keef Cola’s future, there is a CBD Mocktail line to look forward to, founder Knutson is planning that for later this year. There are so many studies out now that highlight the benefits of CBD and prove it is a natural alternative to traditional pharmaceutical remedies. He also shared that they are exploring additional market penetration in traditional retail and grocery outlets. With Keef, everyone is welcome to the party… life is a party!

Infusion Technology for Cannabis and Hemp Beverages

Published

on

Among the hustle of expo goers, we managed to find a quiet corner to sit down with Vertosa’s Director of Operations Lita Cenali to find out how the company is innovating cannabis technology and what their long-term vision and growth plans are. 

Based in Oakland, Vertosa engineers infusion customized solutions for the needs of food, beverage, health, beauty, and other partners. Vertosa supplies partners ranging from startups to industry giants with the tools they need to reach the mainstream. Among their brand partners are Vita-Coco, House of Saka, Tinley, Good Day, and Zola. 

Lita is tenured in the cannabis space and has seen the explosive growth of the industry. She has also witnessed a new group of consumers enter the market and noticed the way they choose to experiencing product evolving.

NUGL: What do customers look for in products right now?
Lita: What is most relevant to consumers right now, is the seed to hand story and knowing the quality of the product they are purchasing. That’s why Vertosa’s company values are the thread of every partnership they have. We are hyper-focused on quality products that are shelf-stable and can scale consistently in an inconsistent environment. We are creating products for the cannabis and hemp markets, and that means that Vertosa and the brands they are working with need to know the intention of the product they are creating and the audience that is consuming it. Because of this commitment, Vertosa has very quickly become the go-to infusion partner to both mainstream and niche brands. 

NUGL: Why do you think there is such an interest in CBD foods? 
Lita: Consumers are becoming informed about CBD and more familiar with it. Accessible at mainstream retailers help to establish CBD beverages and CBD liquors as a social product and creates connections for consumers.

NUGL: Are there any product categories you are excited about or would like to venture into?
Lita: Sexual wellness would be exciting! As conversations become more open about cannabis and hemp, you will see more health and wellbeing products coming to market.

NUGL: Are there any partnerships in hospitality that you have where consumers can get your products? 
Lita: Not at the moment, but it is on our radar. It is such a natural fit, especially for travelers looking to relax and have a great night’s sleep. We are looking to a hospitality partner that is willing to be the first to create toiletries, health tonics, minibar products for travelers. 

NUGL: With the recent funding, what type of growth can we expect from you in 2020?
Lita: Identifying improvements within Vertosa and allocating funds to improve and grow our team as a whole. We are looking to support our infrastructure and scale strategically. It is essential to keep the stability of our brand. What brand partners and consumers have come to rely on, and that is that Vertosa’s and consistent and stable – our infusions do not separate – they stay homogenized. 

At the end of 2019, Vertosa went through a $6 million Series Seed Funding Round co-led by the California-based AFI Capital Partners and the New York-based Welcan Capital. The company will use the new capital to continue to scale, solidify their integral roles within the infused products supply chain, and assist their partner brands in growing both nationally and globally.

If you are interested in cannabis or hemp products, Lita encourages everyone to go to local events and ask questions. Learn more about Vertosa at vertosa.com and connect on with them on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
