Get High-Drated With This Cannabis Fruit Juice

Delicious, refreshing and infused with 100 mg of THC, this is no ordinary fruit juice!

These delightfully elevating drinkables are called Bottom’s Up and are brought to you by Black Weed Nation, a Proudly South African venture, with two delicious tropical flavours: Mango Orange and Strawberry Lemonade.

The Mango Orange is delicious and sweet but you can still taste the cannabis a little. The Strawberry Lemonade is fun and bitter sweet – it reminded me of those sours sweets-  with only a very subtle hint of the cannabis flavour coming through. I enjoyed both and found them both to be equally enjoyable.  

Each beverage is imbued with a secret blend of five different cannabis strains – a balance of Indica’s and Sativa’s to give you both a head and body high and they use only full plant extracts so you also get all the benefits of the entourage effect. The creators use only organically grown cannabis, so although perfect for recreational use, these drinks are so packed full of goodness that they double-up as super immune boosters!

of goodness that they double-up
as super immune boosters!”

We started marketing them as a recreational drink until someone who had bronchitis for over a month drank a bottle of Bottoms Up for three days and was cured,” says Black Weed Nation’s, Blitz, “We then realized that 100 mg+ THC in the drinks was the key to introducing South Africa to cannabis oil in a friendly, non-intrusive and attractive way.”

If you are using it to strengthen your immune system, Blitz suggests you get comfy and sip on your Bottom’s Up throughout the day and allow yourself to relax, rest and heal. “It’s also much easier to drink juice with such a yummy taste than it is to swallow FECO (Full Extract Cannabis Oil)”, said Blitz, “so now we have sick people ordering it to keep in their fridges and are sipping as they go.”

For recreational purposes, Blitz recommends experienced cannabis users drink the whole bottle in one go, (Bottom’s Up!)  however for novices, he recommends three sips and then wait 20 minutes before continuing,The delivery system into the blood stream is efficient and more effective than anything smoked and does not give you that pukey feeling that give you if you consume too much edibles.”

Oh, and you will get the munchies big time!”

And he wasn’t lying!

Both my hubby and I partook of the juices to see if it would affect us differently. After about half an hour we both felt the affects start coming in. The strength of the high increased in waves for about another half an hour, stepping up both in intensity and enjoyment. Hubby and I spent the afternoon feeling extremely chilled on the couch together while we cried laughing to old movies we Netflixed and stuffed ourselves with everything we could lay our hands on.  It was a great way to spend a Sunday! 

“You become a porn star
with no inhibitions”

cannabis drinkableAlso of Special Note, Blitz tells me, is its abilities in the bedroom, “You become a porn star with no inhibitions…and all your pleasure hormones in the body flow freely, think multiple orgasms and heightened sensitivity. It’s hard to describe until both of you drink the drinkables together – you may even end up breaking the bed. Its that good.”

So, if you’re in the mood for a fun, lifted day or if you need to strengthen your body or beat the flu, Bottom’s Up provides all the goodness of cannabis without any of the unpleasant bitter taste.

 

We have basically created a premium product to compete against the best indoor, moonrocks or dab available. Drink a bottle of Bottoms UP and see for yourself” 

Fortunately Bottom’s Up also comes in a reusable swing-top bottle that is child proof, so you won’t have any accidents!

If you like the sound of these awesome products, then you’ll love that Black Weed Nation are also launching a cannabis infused ice cream range this Spring!

Review: Healthy & High

Most edibles are dripping in unhealthy sugars and processed carbs so I was delighted to come across a delicious and healthy edible that was not only nutritious but also packed with 25mg of THC.

 This tasty treat is called High King (I only got the pun once I was actually high! ) is a CanDu Kitchen  creation. Packed with nutrition, this seed bar provides your body with all it needs to sustain  you and the generous dose of THC helps keep you energized and motivated.

If doing household chores usually makes you feel like slitting your wrists, then this seed bar is your salvation!

Energising and uplifting, the high came in subtle waves of increasing intensity  and it took about an hour for me to feel the full strength of the THC which made me feel nice and relaxed but not lazy.

I would definitely recommend this for a playful social gathering, perhaps a picnic or a stroll through the veld with some friends – whatever you decide to do, you’ll feel good doing it!

5 Questions To Ask Your Cannabis Oil Supplier

Finding cannabis oil is easy these days- it seems everyone and their aunt knows someone who’s making it. And what’s wrong with that? Nothing at all, as long as the person making it knows what they are doing and can answer a few basic questions about their products.

  1. What Solvent Was Used?

This needs to be your first question. Did they use alcohol – and was it food grade or industrial alcohol they used to extract the oil?

In the early days of cannabis oil extraction, people were using isopropyl alcohol to make their cannabis oil. Although effective, isopropyl alcohol contains harmful substances which are left in the oil after extraction. These harmful elements are then ingested when you use the oil, which is counter-productive to holistic healing.

You need to ensure your supplier used a food grade alcohol like ethanol to extract the oil. When healing your body, you want to ensure you are putting only the good into it.

2. Tested?

These days we know a lot more about cannabis and it’s make-up: THC, CBD’s and how they all interact with the body. Gone are the dark days where we didn’t know what strain was good for what ailment or having to guess the potency of oil.

In my experience, South African oil suppliers are no slackers when it comes to upholding standards and they have been diligently finding laboratories that will test their products and provide them with the relevant information. Anyone who is serious about making cannabis treatments for sale will have had their products tested.

Tests to ask for include: pesticides, heavy metals, solvent residue and potency (CBD:THC). As mentioned above, when you are taking a substance to improve your health, the last thing you want is it to have harmful pollutants that could sicken your system.

If you are paying money for the oil then you deserve to know exactly what you are buying – it’s that simple.

3. What’s The Potency?

If they’ve tested their oils they will know the ratio of THC to CBD as well as a few other things about the make-up of their oil.

For certain conditions, a higher ratio of CBD is more effective, whereas for other issues a high ratio of THC is better- do some research about which is best for you and then ask your supplier what they can offer you in their range.

4. What Strain?

Not all oil makers are in it for the money and many kitchen-pharmacists are doing it right – and for the right reasons – but they can’t afford the tests to prove it. If you trust your supplier and you know they grow their plants organically, then finding out the strain can be a beneficial alternative for working out the CBD:THC. The internet is a treasure trove of information on different strains, their genetics, flavours and general potency so this will give you a good idea of what effects you can expect. Keep in mind that each plant is different and soil, climate and care do play a large role in how potent your plant will be. The better cared for, the better the quality.

5. Is it Full Plant Extract ?

Studies show that cannabis works best when all the properties of the plant are extracted. This allows for the ‘entourage’ effect. The entourage effect refers to how the compounds present in cannabis work in concert to create a powerful healing effect. Recent studies have shown that isolates are far less effective, have unforeseen side-effects and typically become less effective over time. So, when sourcing your oil it’s a good idea to double check you are getting full plant extract and avoid products that promise you CBD or THC “only” products.

Never be afraid to ask your oil supplier questions – the more information you have the more specific you can be about your cannabis treatment

Is It Time To Add Cannabis To Your Skincare Regime?

Cannabis topicals are gaining in popularity – from anti-anging to healing sores and easing pain – and all without getting high!

I have been looking for the perfect cannabalm for sometime now – mostly to keep my skin moisturised, heal environmental damage and also to use as a preventative for skin cancer and other skin issues.

Benefits of Cannabis Infused Balms

It should come as no surprise to anyone that cannabis possess skin-healing benefits. Known for it’s anti-inflammatoryantioxidant and anti-aging properties, it’s quickly becoming one the more popular treatments for eczema and other skin issues.

Because cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the skin, CBD has the capability of interacting with those receptors to encourage homeostasis and healing.

Topicals are applied right to trouble areas so that the cannabis can work directly where it is needed. Although the cannabis can still be absorbed into your blood stream through your skin, it bypasses the liver and so you don’t get the psychoactive side-effects associated with orally ingested forms of treatment.

Finding the Perfect Cannabis Balm

cannabis skin heal marijuana balmFinding a well made cannabis balm in South Africa is easier said than done. There are balms, don’t get me wrong but too often they are made with cheaper ingredients or the consistency of the balm changes drastically with the heat.

So, when I discovered CannaMeds make a balm using all natural, organic ingredients and biodegradable packaging, I was over the moon. Rich and smooth with a delicate cannabis scent, I couldn’t wait to try it.

Organic, biodegdradable with Vegan-friendly optionsWhat’s not to love?

One of the aspects I appreciate most is their attention to detail – they even carefully monitor how much heat is applied when making their products so that their customers can experience the full spectrum of healing properties offered by the cannabis plant by ensuring that none of these properties are accidentally burnt off. I love a company that goes to such great lengths to ensure we truly get the best of the best!

When you use their balm you can actually feel the care that has been taken in making their products. From the beautiful, biodegradable packaging to the decadent softness of the balm – this product does not disappoint!

CannaMeds also offers vegan options – using GMO-free soy way rather than honey. They also make tinctures and coconut oil infused capsules.

Moisturising and healing

Unlike many natural balms, the CannaMeds Healing Balm is soft in texture making it easy to apply. It was quickly absorbed into my skin, leaving it genuinely silky and smooth to the touch However, unlike with synthetic creams, my skin remained soft and moisturized for hours after.

This makes using the Healing Balm on my face a pleasure – it leaves my skin feeling satin-soft and revitalised but without the usual oily sheen that accompanies many natural balms.

CannaMeds Healing Balm is excellent for treating eczema, inflammation, acne, ageing or pain.
