55.8% OF US CBD CONSUMERS SAY THEY CONSUME FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT41.8% OF AMERICAN CANNABIS CONSUMERS SURVEYED REPORTED CONSUMING THC FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT As football fans in this age of COVID-19 gather in pods and socially-distanced Zoom calls to watch their teams play while attempting to dodge the second wave this fall, it will come as no surprise that they look to cannabis to relax and relieve their tension about what’s happening in the game, or in life in general. What the National Football League (NFL) will not be hyping, however, is how many of its players rely on cannabis to perform on game day. Last March, the professional football league and its player union reached a 10-year labor agreement with dozens of changes, but perhaps none so socially significant as its easing…

Shavo Odadjian founded Los Angeles-based 22Red as a lifestyle, hemp and cannabis company with a footprint in California, Arizona and Nevada. Odadjian smoked cannabis for over 25 years, along with fellow System of a Down veterans Serj Tankian and Daron Malakian. The company name was inspired by numerology and synesthesia, with the number 22 being Odadjian’s favorite number and red being his favorite color—a mysterious indescribable link. 22Red features a line of premium cannabis and hempderived CBD products. You’ll find strains like Church22, Mimosa22, Caramel Gelato and 22 OG. Or vape cartridges featuring tanks filled with OG Kush, Strawberry Banana or Watermelon.

the horror of the high

“Fear is the mind-killer,” American author Frank Herbert wrote in his 1965 novel Dune. Usually, our fears are not based on reality. Horror films typically hijack existing inner fears, such as the guilt from teenagers who are experimenting with sex and alcohol, only to be offed by serial killer in a slasher film. This Halloween season, it’s time to dispel some of the horror stories and oddities that surround cannabis use. Often these stories are based on myth or on a misunderstanding of the truth—and don’t involve any actual danger. Cannabis is one of the least dangerous substances known to man among substances that cause inebriation. For instance, a study published on January 30, 2015, in the journal Scientific Reports, a subsidiary of Nature, found that THC falls into the “low risk”…

It’s election season—and things are about to get crazy. The 2016 election garnered attention both from those who vote at every chance possible as well as those who don’t vote regularly, with an estimated 138 million Americans heading to the polls (about 58.1 percent of the eligible voting population). Now, in 2020, the numbers are expected to grow markedly in what is likely to be one of the most exciting election years in recent history. While the presidential candidates are fighting for recognition and attempting to sway voters by taking jabs at each other in various political ads, it’s important to focus not on the drama, but on the policies. Cannabis has come a long way over the past decade, but a lot more progress is needed to fully end prohibition…
