It’s October and you know what that means. 

The spooky season has finally arrived and I know I’m ready to binge-watch some horror movies while smoking some good bud

Cannabis has become a great way to enhance the scary season for people. Whether it’s to enjoy devouring candy bars, watching a horror movie, or strutting around in your well-planned costume; marijuana is only going to enhance the fun you're going to have.

The following strains may sound like ghoulish monsters, but they are only going to help Halloween stay festive and let fun be had. So, looking to stock up some Halloween treats? Let’s look at some weed strains guaranteed to make Halloween a blast.

Halloween weed

Spooky Strains For Halloween

These strains are perfect for “toke or treating”:

Alien OG

Think something is out there, man? Are we alone in this universe? 

Even if you don’t think aliens exist, Alien OG may be something you wanna try as far as Halloween weed strains go. 

Alien OG is a sativa dominant hybrid. It's a perfect balance between having a nice body high and creating stimulating cerebral sensations. Since you may be out and about on Halloween, Alien OG will be a great companion for events/parties. 

Black Widow

This Black Widow’s bite isn’t poisonous. 

Experienced cannabis users will enjoy the euphoria produced by this energy-pumping sativa. Black Widow is a real candy-coated treat with its shiny, kiefy surface. 

Candy Kush

We can’t talk about Halloween without candy! 

Candy Kush is a balanced, 50/50 hybrid. 

This strain is a cross between Trainwreck and OG Kush. Candy Kush is known to produce incredible munchies. Make sure you have a big bag of candy to pair with this Halloween weed strain.

Frankenberry

This strain may just throw you back to your favorite childhood Halloween cereal

Frankenberry has a strong strawberry aroma which will immediately make your mouth water. This hybrid strain is very stimulating and allows your mind to wander. A perfect pairing for Frankenberry would be to watch a horror movie and feel the ghostly sensations of the night. With an average of 15-20% THC potency, Frankenberry is a Halloween smoke that will allow you to enjoy the night and destress. Known to provide chattiness and uplift your mood. Make sure to bring some friends along.

Ghost OG

Ever wanted to feel like a ghost, but not die first? 

Ghost OG will provide a nice, floaty body high with a strong sense of focus. 

Need a reason to devour candy this Halloween? 

Ghost OG is the perfect strain to get your munchies on. 

Though Ghost OG is an indica dominant strain, it will induce strong giggles, energy, euphoria, and socializing after a sesh of this. 

Ghost OG is truly the perfect Halloween weed strain for telling spooky campfire stories with your friends.

Jack the Ripper

Named after the mysterious serial killer, Jack the Ripper is a sativa dominant hybrid strain. 

Jack the Ripper is the cross between Space Queen and Jack’s Cleaner. 

Jack the Ripper has an enjoyable lemon scent with a creamy and tangy taste. 

On Halloween night, Jack the Ripper will give you cerebral effects to keep you going.

Jack Skellington

This is Halloween! This is Halloween!

And who better to tell you than the Pumpkin King himself, Jack Skellington. 

It is a sativa-dominant strain crossed with Killer Queen and Jack the Ripper. 

Jack Skellington has a surprisingly pungent fuel/earthy aroma and fruity in taste. 

You can count on Jack Skellington to provide increased energy levels. If you’re experienced, this strain will elevate your Halloween experience.

Pennywise

Hello, Georgie! 

This clownish strain is a must for consumers craving a nice sedative/relaxing effect. 

Pennywise may sound quite horrifying if the demonic clown scared you but the indica heavy hybrid is 15% THC and CBD in potency. 

We all float.

Witches Weed

Witches Weed will put a spell on you. 

And now you’re high.

Witches Weed was certainly brewed in a cauldron. 

Witches Weed’s combination of Chem D, Valley OG Kush, and Cinderella 99 make the strain a strong sativa with yummy fruit flavors. 

With a 22% THC potency, Witches Weed may not be for the inexperienced. 

The high can be unpredictable and for some, this isn’t fun.

Zombie Kush

Brains! Brains! Oh no, here come the Zombies.

Big fan of Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead, or Walking Dead? 

This potent indica strain is a classic choice for Halloween. 

After a crazy night, Zombie Kush will allow you to just shuffle to a good horror movie, get together your candy bars for a late-night treat.

Zombie Kush will then slowly erase any stress you might have. A couch-locked body high will take control, keeping you nice and comfy until bedtime.

With Halloween falling on a Sunday most events are happening on Saturday, October 30th.  

This lets everyone party hearty without having to go to work Monday morning with a hangover.  Although that doesn’t mean you can’t prove us wrong and go hard both nights!  

The theme for this party is Multi-verse.  

A theoretical reality that includes a possibly infinite number of parallel universes. 

When you look in the mirror beyond your reflection, what do you see? 

What does your reflection see? 

An intergalactic superhero? An evil villain? A space cowboy? A naughty librarian? A vampire bunny? A forest fawn?

All are welcomed at Coloween!  There will be live music, a $1500 costume contest, and drinks to be served.

Dumpstaphunk at Cervantes' Other Side

If live music and groovy boogie get-downs are more your squeeze, we recommend checking out Dumpstaphunk at Cervantes’ Other Side!  

These guys play some really stellar music to smoke to and dance with.  

The venue is smaller so you won’t have to worry about a huge crowd to spoil your high.  

There is a great bar here and it’s encouraged to wear costumes.  

Tickets can be found at the link.

Halloween Bash with the Motley 2 at The Venue

Start growing your hair out now so you can come shake it out this Halloween with Motley 2 at The Venue.  

These guys are one of the best cover bands around!  

Throwback to the ragin’ ’80s and come get down with some drinks and tokes this Halloween at The Venue.  

Costumes are encouraged but not necessary.

Stay Home and Smoke

Maybe going out to a bar or concert isn’t your jam this year?  That’s cool too.  

There isn’t a single reason you shouldn’t feel chill about staying home and rolling one up by yourself, with some friends, or some spooky spirits that decided to stop by for the sesh.  

One game we like to play is called Sponsor a Trick or Treater.  

In this game, every time you have a kid come to your door and give them candy, you eat a piece too.  

Check out our great deals on edibles this month from Cannasaver.  

Another game you and your friends can play is called “Weed billiards”. 

Here in the game you and your friends take turns to draw the best Pot leaf you can! 

It is much harder than you would think. 

For extra fun, everyone has to ante up one weed nugget and the person who draws the best leaf gets the whole shebang.  

We do this at Cannasaver even on non-holiday celebrations! 

We hope you will enjoy the tradition as well.

Happy Halloween folks!!

How to Trim Marijuana

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 04 October 2021 in Canna Blog

Well, boys and girls, it’s that time again. It’s Harvest Season! 

All that hard work and time you’ve spent growing your marijuana plant(s) to tip-top shape is about to be complete.

It’s now time for the trimming process.

Trimming marijuana flowers allows for a better-looking bud, higher potency, smoother smoke, and can eliminate mold growth.

So, if you are ready to start the next step in your harvesting, this will serve as your guide to the basics of how to trim your marijuana.

trim marijuana

The Importance of Trimming Your Cannabis

There are several reasons why you should trim your weed, but we’ll just tell you the biggest reasons why you should trim.

Appearance

To start, trimming allows your buds to look their best. Buds seen on our website, in dispensaries, magazines, etc. are always trimmed. This is probably how most of your weed looks.

Taste, aroma, and effects are the most important aspects of cannabis.

However, looks don’t fall far behind. After all, nothing feels as good as pulling pristine, manicured buds out of a stash jar. Trimming your flowers will transform them from rugged nugs into those worthy of a spot on the top shelf.

Aroma

Trimming allows for amazing aromas. Different strains offer a blend of unique terpenes which create the bud’s aroma.

Buds that are trimmed tend to gain a stronger/better smell and untrimmed buds tend to have a hay-like smell. 

Smoother Smoke

Trimming your marijuana majorly reduces the harshness you experience when smoking. Leaves and other plant material are much harsher on your lungs. Leaves contain more chlorophyll than buds. Chlorophyll when smoked has a more acidic feel in your throat. Trimming off the extra plant material makes your actual buds go down much smoother. 

THC Potency

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for. Trimming makes your weed stronger! Without sugar leaves, your trimmed buds will have higher potency levels of THC.

Wet vs Dry Trimming: Which Should You Choose?

When trimming your marijuana plants, there are two ways professionals do it. That’s either wet trimming (before the buds dry) or dry trimming (after the buds dry).

Wet Marijuana Trimming

When you wet trim your marijuana, it will be done all in one sitting.

You cut down the plant, cut buds off branches, trim the buds, and place the buds on a drying rack.

You should choose to wet trim if:

  • You have high humidity (Not a worry in Colorado)

  • You want your buds to dry faster

  • If you are worried about mold

  • If there are a lot of buds drying in a cramped area

Wet trimming is a sticky process. Trichomes will get on your fingers, shears, body, etc. If you wet trim, gloves are recommended. 

Dry Marijuana Trimming

When you dry trim your marijuana, you will cut down the plant and hang the whole batch to dry for several days.

When the buds are dry, you will cut buds off branches then trim those buds. 

You should choose to dry trim if:

  • Mold isn’t a problem

  • You want buds to dry slower

  • You want your buds to be denser

Dry trimming is a lot less messy with the bud’s trichomes hardening as your weed dries. This will reduce mess though keep in mind the trichomes become much more fragile when dry. Handle with care.

Tools You Will Need For Trimming

Gloves

When trimming, gloves are your best friend.

Gloves keep the plant resin off your hands, keeping them from getting incredibly sticky.

The gloves will also keep your hand juices off the cannabis.

Scissors

You will definitely be using a pair of scissors. Any grower will tell you, “get a good pair”.

Fiskars scissors are a common standard in the industry. Fiskars scissors are good (for experience) because they are very sharp, thin, and spring open after each snip.

Containers

You will need 3 jars. These containers will help you differentiate trimmed, untrimmed, and various trim you want for later.

Tray (optional)

Trimming WILL make a mess. Some trays will prevent mess/spillage from getting all over your floor. This is also convenient if you plan on making something out of your trimmings.

how to trim marijuana

Step By Step: How to Trim Marijuana

  • Set up your weed-trimming area: Give yourself room. This would also be a good time to set up a movie, TV show, or music. Trimming can feel extremely tedious very quickly. You will absolutely want to be comfortable. You will be here for a while. Strap on your gloves and grab your shears.

  • Cut a branch off your plant: Now that you’re all ready to go, cut a branch off your plant and lay it on your tray/table/surface.

  • Trim fan leaves: Fan leaves are those large leaves that have five distinct points. Like a weed logo. Fan leaves can be pulled with your fingers or clipped. 

Note: Some choose to clip fan leaves after the curing process. This will slow down the drying process but will then produce more flavorful buds.

  • Trim sugar leaves: The sugar leaves emerge from the buds themselves. Only their tips are typically visible. Use your scissors to cut these off.

  • Leave to cure: For curing, store your finished buds in a container. You will want an airtight glass jar to preserve flavors and aromas. The curing process typically takes two weeks to a month.

So, now you may think that trimming your buds is an absolutely dreadful experience but to smoke those buds, we have got to trim. With proper trimming, a much bigger yield of smokable weed will be available to you.

Trimming is a skill you will only acquire through practice and more practice.

Hopefully, with this information, you will be able to harvest successfully.

Happy harvesting!

Ground Up Weed vs Whole Flower

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 30 September 2021 in Canna Blog

To grind or not to grind, that really is the question.

As you turn and turn your grinder with the amazing buds crushing underneath, you may have at one point thought to yourself, “why don’t dispensaries sell my favorite strains ground up?” 

I think at some point or another we have all pondered, should I be grinding my weed? Or maybe should I not be grinding my weed?

Well, that’s exactly what we are going to look at today.

Ground up weed vs whole flower weed – let’s discuss.

ground up weed vs whole flower

Why Would You Want Ground Up Weed?

Have you ever wondered why someone likes using a grinder?

By breaking down your buds into small pieces allows the marijuana chemicals to burn completely and evenly.

When marijuana burns, it releases terpenes and other cannabinoids allowing them to be ingested via the lungs.

Ground up weed allows bowls and joints to burn evenly. By doing this, you will save yourself from unburnt, wasted weed.

grinding up weed

Pros Of Ground Up Weed

Smoking

Grinding your weed makes it burn more evenly and smoothly than a big piece of flower will. This will allow you to have a much smoother and enjoyable smoke sesh. 

Quick & Easy

Grinding with your fingers can take a lot longer to cut up a gram of weed. Simply just throw it in a grinder. 

Kief

Grinders are amazing little devices. They collect your ground-up buds in one area while collecting trichomes (kief) in another. This allows you to collect high potency kief.

Cons Of Ground Up Weed

Disturbing The Trichomes

Some of the most potent parts of your bud won’t end up being smoked when using a grinder or smoking ground bud.

If you have a kief-catching grinder, they will fall into the bottom and you typically save it for a rainy day.

If you aren’t trying to save the kief for that time, then you lose out on the immediate potency of the smoke sesh.

Go Through More Weed, More Problems

Some smokers swear by finger-grinding their weed. By chopping your weed with your fingers, larger chunks are a result.

This would mean you wouldn’t end up packing too much into a bowl.

Also, full buds are overall fresher. No THC degradation. 

Pros of Whole Flower Weed

Freshness

When grinding your buds, you get hit with the aromas of your strain

The smells are terpenes, the natural oils that give cannabis its specific smells. Like with  Sour Diesel’s fuel smell or Grape Ape’s berry smells. Terpenes are highly volatile and grinding your cannabis expedites quickens the terpenes’ release.

Much like with coffee beans, some prefer ground coffee and some prefer to buy whole bean coffee and grind it when necessary.

Same applies with marijuana. When in full nug form, the flower will remain much fresher when left unground.

Potency

When marijuana is ground up, more of the buds surface area is exposed to light and heat.

Both are responsible for degrading THC and other cannabinoids. When the bud is left alone, the terpenes and cannabinoids remain more intact.

Grinding cannabis also shakes trichomes off the buds. Trichomes are responsible for producing THC, THCA, CBD, etc.

For this reason, waiting until smoke time to grind your weed is the best way to ensure you’ll be able to pick up loose kief in that moment. Grinders with kief catchers are awesome for this. 

Cons of Whole Flower Weed

Smoke-ability

I’m sure you, like myself, have tried stuffing a whole bud into a bowl. The results: not great.

Whole flower buds don’t have as even of a surface area which makes the flower burn very unevenly.

THC Syringe

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 29 September 2021 in Canna Blog

I’m sure at some point or another you’ve been in a dispensary and saw a syringe-looking device. Or maybe you haven’t and we sound like junkies over here, but trust me, this is 100% THC goodness.

So what is a THC syringe and what exactly is it used for? Let’s take a look at why you may want to try one.

thc syringe

What Is a THC Syringe?

THC syringes are plastic (needleless) syringes filled with full-spectrum cannabis oil. 

Cannabis oil (RSO) is made from concentrated marijuana into a paste-like substance that is taken sublingually and is incredibly strong. 

Full-spectrum refers to the vast amount of cannabinoids found in cannabis oil. The oil in the syringe is usually extremely dark/thick.

The plastic syringe is used to dispense cannabis oil and allows the ability to dispense cannabis oil to precise amounts exactly the amount you want. 

Syringes are also an easy way to keep the cannabis oil fresh while maintaining ease of dosing.

How Is Cannabis Oil Made?

Cannabis oil is a marijuana extract made utilizing a solvent to extract cannabinoids. The oil has lots of THC with a fine assortment of other cannabinoids. The most common solvent is grain alcohol.

Marijuana flower material is placed in a large container with alcohol added after. 

The mixture is stirred and crushed over and over into the alcohol until the liquid is nice and green. 

Like, Hulk green.

After a little time, alcohol is drained from the remaining plant mixture. 

That mixture will then be heated in a container and the residual alcohol will evaporate.

weed syringe

Why Use A THC Syringe?

Those needing cannabis oil typically need it in precise doses. 

The syringes allow for exact dose measurements marked on the syringe itself. 

This ensures that no cannabis oil is wasted during usage.

Syringes are especially useful for those with impaired motor functions (seizures, tremors, etc.). Syringes can be used to squirt medicine directly into the mouth without any oil spilling.

Syringes are typically used for oral consumption but they can also be used to measure cannabis oils used in edibles. 

The Benefits Of THC Syringes

Cannabis oil is perfect for those that require a full spectrum of cannabinoids at bigger doses throughout the day. It should be noted by patients that cannabis helps you get the full spectrum of cannabinoids that were in the plant matter used to create the oil. 

Concentrates like distillate (also found in syringes) are normally bought for their THC/THCA potency. Cannabis oil is bought for its THC containing plant matter and other cannabinoids. THC, THCA, and CBD are cannabinoids those who use syringes typically are looking for. Distillate only has THC/THCA.

How To Use A THC Syringe

THC syringes can be used in different ways to help an individual’s needs. 

When using a THC syringe be sure to read the instructions. Each dose depends on the person involved. Typically, doses should be about the size of half a grain of rice and should be administered once every eight hours (morning, noon, and night).

I hope I don’t have to say this but I probably do, don’t be a badass! 

My brother, both a major stoner and dealing with major pain from awful brain cancer, couldn’t handle feeling the potent high the oil produced. 

Start low and build to it.

The cannabis oil also has a robust and bitter taste that might not be too enjoyable for some. 

I always suggest taking it with a tasty munchie treat which is high in fats. 

Foods such as peanut butter or yogurt mask its bitter taste and increase THC absorption throughout your body. 

Other Uses For THC Syringes

No worries to those not seeking medical relief. 

THC syringes add an extra kick to your buds

Just a little cannabis oil from the syringe onto the buds can reduce the amount of flower you go through.  

This mostly applies to distillate syringes. Some creative other uses for THC syringes.

Adding Cannabis Oil To Joints 

You simply put small amounts of the distillate onto your marijuana while rolling a joint before smoking it. 

Just know that adding distillate to joints can ruin the durability and can lead to a sticky situation. 

Don’t put too much.

wax covered joint

Distillate Syringe For Dabbing

Distillate syringes can be ideal for dabbing because you can easily dispense a drop of distillate right onto your dab tool. Some syringes come with a metal tip. This can allow you to also directly dab your syringe to a banger/nail. 

Easy dabbing.

So maybe it’s about time you give THC syringes a chance. 

There are so many benefits of THC syringes. 

They come in different sizes and can give accurate doses for those who need them.

What Dispensary Has the Best Deals?

If you’re new to buying marijuana, it can be tricky to know if you’re getting the best value for money if you haven’t browsed a variety of deals before heading to your local dispensary.

However, scrolling through pages and pages of websites can take time and effort, and it’s far less hassle to find a reliable website that is home to multiple dispensaries.

If you’re wondering how to find the best deals before heading to a dispensary, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will explore different dispensary deals alongside weed coupons that can save you time and money when you’re next stocking up on weed. 

Let’s get started.

Heading to a local dispensary can feel overwhelming – especially when you’re new to them – and if you don’t browse beforehand, you might feel like you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Cannasaver Weed Coupons

When you’re replenishing your stash, it can become expensive very quickly, especially when you’re buying in bulk to get the best value for money. Coupons are great for alleviating this cost, as they provide you with a percentage of money off the original price and can make it much more affordable.

Cannasaver offers a variety of different deals and coupons that are sure to suit you and your preferences depending on what you’re searching for.

These coupons will help you narrow the search as there’s already an incentive to choose these particular products, while also giving you a reasonable discount for whatever products you decide to choose.

In addition to this, having a look at which coupons and deals are available and where can also save you a ton of time. This means that you won’t have to spend a long time figuring out what you want in the dispensary itself as you will have planned ahead!

Coupons are also a good way of expanding your horizons when it comes to trying new strains of marijuana and opens you up to the vast amount of marijuana products on the market.

Cannabis Seeds and Clones

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 24 September 2021 in Canna Blog

Fall is officially here for the year and with its arrival brings many wonderful things.

Leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, Halloween, cozy nights, corn mazes, and most importantly harvest time for this year’s outdoor crop! 

October, or as we call it here at Cannasaver, ‘Croptober’, is our favorite time of the year. 

For us, it means there’ll be a whole bunch of new weed deals for the month and some brand new strains to test out.  There’s nothing better than getting your hands and fingers sticky from trimming up those tasty buds with your buds before they are hung and dried. 

The smell alone is worth setting some time aside to trim some pot.  But maybe you didn’t have a chance to grow your own crop this year or maybe you didn’t know where to begin your growing journey? 

Well, fear not, friends!

We here at Cannasaver have done our research and are bringing you all the information you’ll need to decide for next year how to begin your garden by starting some seeds or acquiring some already rooted weed clones or cuttings. 

Each option has its own benefits and ranges in level of difficulty to get your baby plants into flowering giants.  

cannabis seeds

Weed Seeds 

Has this ever happened to you? 

You get a bag of some dank, dank chronic and while smoking it, you stumble upon a few seeds hidden in the tasty flowers so you set them aside and save them because the ganja was so dank that you want to grow some yourself. 

Great! 

The first step you’ll want to do is to get the seed to germinate and begin its very first root

To germinate and begin your seeds, you’ll want to get a paper towel wet and squeeze out excess water so that it’s damp but not soaking

Next, set your seeds inside the paper towel and place the paper towel between two plates so the paper towel is sitting in a small, dark dome between the two plates.

Put the plates in a warm 70-80 degree area and wait around 3 days to a week, checking the seeds once a day after the 3-day mark and keeping the paper towels wet with a spray bottle of water. 

You should see the husk of the seed break open on one end and a small white root begins to show.  This is called a taproot.  Once this root is present, you can now put your seed into soil or your preferred growing medium.  

You’ll want to start small with your pot size and increase the size as your baby seed grows bigger. 

growing cannabis seeds

Benefits of Weed Seeds

The coolest part of starting your own seeds is that the weed you grow from it and the cuttings that come from your plant are exclusive and no one else will have that exact strain unless you give out the cuttings. 

Some growers take this to heart and protect their signature strains under lock and key. 

The other benefit is you are able to pick the best traits from many different seeds you start and select the most vigorous, healthy, and best yielding strain by testing multiple seeds from the same bag.  

If you’re looking for a great seed deal check out our friends over at Herbs4you!

They have a sale going on with their feminized seeds in some fire flavors for you to choose from.

cannabis clones

Weed Clones

For some though starting from seeds can be too lengthy a process and want to have a faster turnover from start to finish. 

For many, the alternative to starting from seeds is to buy clones or cuttings from a grower or shop.  

A clone is an already-rooted weed plant taken from a "mother" plant. 

This is done by cutting one of the branches off a larger plant or “Mother plant” and placing the stem end down into either rock wool or an aeroponic cloning machine

Both methods require a rooting hormone to be used in order to stimulate the plant's natural ability to grow fresh healthy roots.  

The process usually takes 7-10 days depending on the strain you are taking the cutting from and the conditions that it is being kept in. 

Ideally, the temperature should be around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. 

The newly-taken cuttings must be kept moist and hydrated to prevent them from drying out before the roots have appeared. 

Plants are able to absorb moisture from their stomata located at the leaf nodes.  

Perhaps the best part of getting clones vs. seeds is that you know what you are getting as far as a strain goes.  You have a proven winner and healthy stallion genetics thriving in those babies.  If you can get them from a source such as from a featured dispensary on our site, then you know what you are getting will throw down that hot fire dank dank everyone wants to grow. 

You are also able to skip the Phenotype testing that takes a whole grow cycle to perfect and determine which plant you’ll want to keep for your "mother" plant.  

For many large recreational growers, clones are the way of life. 

Having healthy clones to start a crop is the difference between a high-yielding, vigorous, stanky-danky garden full of thriving beautiful cannabis plants vs. a wimpy garden with some puny nuggets barely producing any sweet trichomes.

When shopping for your new babies we recommend checking out our deals on clones around your area.

Our Suggestions on Seeds and Clones

We recommend starting with healthy established clones for your first garden. 

Generally speaking, you’ll run into fewer health issues down the line starting from genetics that have already been tested by other growers. 

You’ll cut 2-3 weeks off your grow cycle by having already rooted established babies to start your garden rather than waiting for seedlings to sprout. 

Ask your budtender or grower for something mold-resistant, high yielding, and then take your pick of Sativa or Indica that will float your balloon as high as a giraffe's necktie. 

Look at that thumb turn green!

THCV Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 18 September 2021 in Canna Blog

Maybe you’ve heard of a nifty lil’ cannabinoid called THCV.  Perhaps it was from your cool smoker buddy who always is up on the newest type of dab, extract, edible, and exotic flower there is to offer.  Maybe it was from your crazy uncle Eddie at the family reunion while he was smoking a doobie of high THCV flower at the same time shouting at his overgrown rottweiler to get off the table and eating the snack platter that Gamgams put out for everyone to munch on.  Or, perhaps you’ve never heard of it at all and have no idea what you’re reading about and this article is going to go into. 

If so, then check out our helpful and informative blog about THCV Edibles.

thcv strains

THCV – What Is It?

THCV is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. THCV is a cannabinoid.  THC and CBD are also cannabinoids.  While it is similar in chemical structure to THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the effects it can have on the body are much different.  THCV has a less psychoactive release in the brain than THC.  People who use THCV report having more energy, less appetite, and feeling less lethargic than consuming something with higher THC.  This is because the way our bodies are able to process cannabinoids is through our own Endocannabinoid system or (ECS). 

THCV, THC, and CBD all innervate with receptors in the ECS differently which produces the different reactions we have to consume them.  The ECS helps to regulate our physical and mental well-being, appetites, sleep schedules, and even hormones can be affected.

This article is going to walk through some of the top strains that have higher than average levels compared to other strains.  

Where Is THCV Found?

The origins of high THCV strains can be traced back to some OG landrace strains in Africa and surrounding areas. 

These strains are Sativa dominant and usually average at around 15%-23% THC as well. 

Sativas are known for giving more of a creative head high rather than a lethargic couch-lock that people associate with Indicas. 

People began to notice the differences between smoking different strains and started to seek out sources of the different types of highs.  Sativas became known as "the daytime smoke" because as many people say, it gives them energy, makes them feel more creative, and can do the opposite of munchies and help to curb an appetite.

thcv weed strains

Popular THCV Strains

Durban Poison

This is probably the most well-known strain on the list, or at least it was to us.  This strain is super Sativa dominant.  It is popular for a nice afternoon bong snap.  It gives off creativity and energy as for its main side effects.  It puts out a sweet and earthy aroma when smoked. Artists favor this strain for its highly Sativa effects.  It is usually round and chunky in bud structure and covered in trichomes giving it that frosty sugar-coated look.  This strain is one of our favorites down here at Cannasaver.

Pineapple Purps

Pineapple Purps is a strain that has grown in popularity over recent years. This strain has an average of 3:1 THC to THCV giving it highly psychoactive properties.  It has a sweet aroma that smells fruity and gives off a pineapple essence.  When smoked it tastes like sweet berry wine. It gives uplifting energetic effects when smoked and leaves you feeling with a head in the clouds high with bursts of energy.  This high THCV strain is used medically to treat anxiety, appetite loss, and mild cases of depression.  It possesses dark green leaves, slightly purple hairs, and is frosty with trichomes giving it a beautiful look and an even better smoke.

Power Plant

Power Plant is another African Sativa strain on our list.  This popular strain is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica with a split of around 65% Sativa and 35% Indica.   It has a higher than average amount of CBD making it a perfect blend of all different types of effects.  It will give you energy and also relax you.  Power Plant has light green leaves and a nice rich dusting of trichomes on the outer leaves.  This gives it a sweet and earthy aroma that tastes a bit like limes.  It’s known to give a clear-headed high with lots of energy.  

Red Congolese

With more people smoking cannabis now that it is recreationally legal in many states and medically legal in most of the states in the country, nonpsychoactive strains are at the top of people’s to-try lists.  This stain is no exception to that.  Red Congolese is a strain that gained popularity in California.  When grown it has an Indica like bushy structure but possesses the uplifting creative effects of a chronic Sativa.  It also has uplifting and creative effects when smoked or consumed.  It promotes mental clarity and has been used to help treat Alzheimer’s with promising results shown in this study.  This is a popular afternoon or wake-and-bake smoke for many people that struggle with nausea or tension.  

Doug’s Varin

This unique strain is known to suppress appetite due to its high levels of THCV.  It has been selectively bred over generations to gain the highly Sativa effects it gives.  It averages around 19% THC when tested.  It is a pure Sativa and boy does it smoke like one. Doug’s Varin gives off a piney, earthy smell.  It tastes like sweet citrus when smoked.  It usually flowers in 8-9 weeks making it a great choice for both indoor and outdoor growers. Along with appetite suppression, Doug’s Varin also is used to treat depression, muscle spasms, and stress. 

Thanks for checking out our blog on THCV weed strains. 

We hope you’ll go check out some of these strains at your local favorite dispensary soon!

Best Strains for PTSD or Anxiety

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 31 August 2021 in Canna Blog

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that affects many men and women around the world. Though often associated with military veterans, PTSD can also develop after a traumatic experience in one’s life.

PTSD can occur in anyone following a traumatic event. 

Symptoms do vary but are often extremely debilitating. Those affected with PTSD may flashback to the extreme trauma through a hyper-aware brain and nightmares. This can bring difficulty concentrating or sleeping. 

Cannabis usage for those with PTSD or anxiety has become an option for dealing with mental ailments (definitely something we like, vs some of the prescription meds that are handed out).

Let’s look deeper into PTSD and marijuana, with our goal being that we find the best strains for PTSD or anxiety. 

ptsd or anxiety

Why Marijuana For PTSD & Anxiety

The relationship between PTSD and marijuana has more to it than one may think at first. Though THC and CBD don’t occur naturally in our bodies, they interact with our endocannabinoid system which kick-starts a variety of beneficial biological processes.

People dealing with PTSD often have some kind of deficiency in their endocannabinoid system. By consuming marijuana, PTSD symptoms tend to lessen with the introduction of THC/CBD. These cannabinoids gradually bring balance in their thoughts.

So, with that said, let’s get into some of the best strains for combating PTSD.

Best Strains for PTSD

We’ll go through a list of sativa strains and indica strains.

best sativa strains for ptsd or anxiety

Sativas

These are more “uppers” and have you feeling more active, alert, etc. Like a coffee or something in cannabis form.

Golden Goat 

Golden Goat is an incredibly popular strain that was created here in Colorado. The strain has a high THC potency, usually between 23-25%. The smells Golden Goat puts off are definitely unique.  The taste is similar to something tropical but also spicy. 

Golden Goat is known to help treat stress, anxiety, pain, insomnia, and depression.

Harlequin

Harlequin is a delightfully balanced cannabis strain with a high CBD content. Being higher in CBD than THC, the strain has little to zero psychoactive effects. The higher CBD levels help to treat anxiety and pain. 

Harlequin has stinky smells with tropical tastes of mango and pineapple. This strain is able to lift moods with happy feelings as well as providing focus. 

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is a strong sativa strain with its namesake being a pungent aroma with diesel gas-like aroma.  This strain is typically pretty high in THC being between 20-25%. 

Sour D has a quick onset time with energizing effects. Consumers state that the strain helps treat stress, depression, and pains. The strain is long-lasting which will leave you stress-free and relieve pain.

best hybrid strains for ptsd or anxiety

Hybrids

These are halfway between “uppers” and “chillers.” A perfect mix, really, although each strain can lean a certain way or other.

AC/DC 

AC/DC is yet another high CBD strain on our list. 

This strain is evenly balanced between indica and sativa. 

AC/DC helps relieve pain without feeling noticeably high. This is often ideal for people with PTSD to ease the way they feel. 

Blue Dream

Blue Dream is a slightly sativa dominant strain that induces euphoria and relaxation. With PTSD often causing the inability to relax, Blue Dream has a rep for lifting moods and boosting social confidence.

OG Kush

OG Kush is a classic strain being the cross between Chemdawg and Hindu Kush. The strain leans to be heavy indica which allows strong relaxation. OG Kush has many layers of flavor and aroma. 

OG Kush is often considered ideal for PTSD sufferers since the high is known to be euphoric with a full-body calm.

This strain is a great option for those suffering from pain, inflammation, and depression.

best indica strains for ptsd or anxiety

Indicas

Lastly, these are the “chillers” or relaxers. They’re usually ones that lay you down softly and tuck you into bed and read you a bedtime story.

Afghan Kush

The legendary Afghan Kush is a pure 100% indica. Afghan Kush has heavy, body-heavy effects that will move your body into bed with ease. With the strain being rich in CBD, Afghan Kush is one of the best strains for managing anxiety symptoms in those who tend to experience anxiety/paranoia when getting high.

Afghan Kush has a pleasant earthy scent and sweet taste undertones of old-school hash. It has dense buds amounting to an abundance of trichomes. This strain will take the distractions/pains you may have accumulated during the day and melt them away like butter.

Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a great strain for people wanting relief from PTSD or anxiety. This strain is made up of the strains Big Bud and Purple Urkle. Granddaddy Purple has pleasant aromas of blueberry and grape. 

Granddaddy Purple is extremely effective in helping with PTSD symptoms such as pain, insomnia, nausea, and anxiety. The strain is a great way to reduce the anxieties you are feeling, causing them to come down to much more manageable levels.

Skywalker OG

Skywalker OG is a great way to bring balance to the force, or eh, PTSD/anxiety symptoms. The way of the Jedi suggests Skywalker OG for full master mode. High and enlightened we will definitely get. 

Skywalker OG is a delightful cross of Blue Dream and Pineapple Express (both great strains as well). The Strain ranges between 20-23% THC. Skywalker OG is a relaxing, pleasant, and clear thinking high. The flavor profile consists of citrus and floral. The strain has the aroma of earthy and citrus scents.  Skywalker OG leaves consumers in a happy/elevated state of being. 

Skywalker OG provides a sleepy kind of high which is great for beating insomnia and allowing for an amazing night's sleep.

worst strains for ptsd or anxiety

The Worst Strains For PTSD/Anxiety

Green Crack

Green Crack may sound scary for a reason. It is a strain known for maximum energy and thinking. The energy Green Crack provides is incomparable to other strains. Green Crack’s chemical biology means it has the ability to enhance focus, but at the risk of unwanted paranoia/anxiety. For anxiety/PTSD, I definitely say to stay away from this strain. Your demons will encircle you.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer can be an extremely anxiety-inducing strain. The strain’s ability for heightened creative effects can cause those with anxieties to have heightened worries and stresses. 

Trainwreck

For PTSD, you may not want this “Trainwreck”. The high levels of THC can cause extreme head rushes which those who suffer from anxiety disorders can often find unpleasant.  

And there you have it. Now, we most certainly don't want to convince you that cannabis is the cure for PTSD or anxiety, nor should you just get off any prescribed medication, but there are some more natural ways to deal with what you're dealing with.

Are Pre Rolls Worth It?

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 30 August 2021 in Canna Blog

It’s a special (or maybe just regular ol’) night and you're thinking of picking up something special to bring home and smoke with your friends. 

One of the easier options for you to bring to smoke is a pre-roll joint. 

There are a lot of benefits to pre-rolls. 

A pre-roll joint is affordable, disposable, and can be easily shared. 

But there’s just one problem: Pre-rolls aren’t seen as a quality product. 

They are seen as low-quality cannabis. 

But why? The quality really varies a lot from dispensary to dispensary. 

Some use high-quality buds while others use shake or trim (a combination of stems, buds, and other plant materials).

So, are pre rolls worth it, or are they just getting rid of the ditch weed?

are pre rolls worth it

What Exactly Is A Pre-Roll?

Simply put, pre-rolls are joints that have been rolled ahead of time for you

A regular pre-roll is made up of cannabis, rolling paper, and a small filter or crutch at the end. Sometimes pre-rolls can include other cannabis products to increase the THC potency.

Many pre-roll joints contain awesomely fresh, ground-up buds

Pre-roll cannabis often contains shake, AKA what accumulates at the bottom of marijuana jars. High-quality marijuana provides an amazing experience. 

Unlike with bowls or bongs, purchasing a pre-roll does not require any other equipment except a lighter.

The Benefits of a Pre-Rolled Joint

Don’t pass on the pre-packed puff! There are many reasons pre rolls are worth it!

Pre Rolls are Convenient

A huge benefit of a pre-roll is that it’s incredibly convenient. 

A pre-roll is ready to go right out of the tube. 

No work and no mess for you. 

Their convenience also offers major benefits to medical users whose condition might make it difficult for them to roll joints themselves or pack a bowl. 

Pre Rolls are Affordable

Often in cannabis, prices for high-quality buds/equipment to smoke from can be crazy. 

Pre-rolls are much more affordable and can be bought in singles.

It’s also a great way to try different kinds of strains. The weed is taken from the same jar, we promise! 

Pre Rolls are Portable

Pre-rolls are discreet and easy to transport from place to place. 

No need to carry anything else but a lighter. 

Ditch the tube in the trash/recycle and ditch the crutch of the joint when you’re done.

No glass, no torch, no problem! 

quality pre rolls

How To Spot A Quality Pre-Roll

We have looked at what makes a low-quality pre-roll but how do you spot a quality one? 

Smell it: Your nose is a great pre-roll detector. It will tell you a lot. If not sealed, twist open and smell it. If you can smell terpenes and thick aromas, you can expect great things

Look At the Maker: Take a look at the label. Companies like Flower Collective, Willie’s Reserve, and Kaviar won’t risk their reputation by selling underrated pre-rolls. 

Cut it open: Before buying a bunch of specific pre-rolls, consider buying one and cutting it open. Ideally, you should find ground buds and little to no stems/other plant material.

Downsides of the Pre-Roll Life

Pre-rolls may have some great aspects, but like with everything also have their downsides. Here are a couple of disadvantages associated with buying pre-rolls.

Mystery Weed

Not being able to always be able to look at the joint may make things “interesting”. For those who aren’t strain-specific, give it a go.

If a certain strain makes you paranoid, best to stay away. 

Old Product

Some dispensaries use shake and various plant material to fill their pre-rolls. 

Some might even mix in some older product (I’ve seen this happen first hand). 

You’ll typically not know how old it is.

However, with Colorado’s quality of weed available, even shake and “older” weed is still very good quality.

In the end, be your own judge. 

People might try to scare you away from pre-rolls, but for many, pre-rolls are an extremely viable option. 

So, whether or not pre-rolls are worth it for you is a matter of opinion. 

Get out there and try some!

Each dispensary is different, too.

Just about any/every dispensary in Denver and in Colorado is going to have some deals on pre rolls, so go and ask your local budtender!

Happy toking, bud!

THCV Edibles

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 30 August 2021 in Canna Blog

There are many health benefits of THCV, but for those wanting to consume cannabis in other ways, edibles are a good option. Here, we break down what THCV is and we talk about how THCV edibles might be the perfect option you're looking for.

What is THCV?

THCV is a cannabinoid

THC and CBD are also cannabinoids but if you’re like most people, you may have never heard of this specific cannabinoid. 

While it is similar in chemical structure to THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the effects it can have on the body are much different. 

THCV has a less psychoactive release in the brain than THC. 

People who use THCV report having more energy, less appetite, and feeling less lethargic than consuming something with higher THC. 

This is because the way our bodies are able to process cannabinoids is through our own Endocannabinoid system or (ECS). 

THCV, THC, and CBD all innervate with receptors in the ECS differently which produces the different reactions we have to consume them.  The ECS helps to regulate our physical and mental well-being, appetites, sleep schedules, even hormones can be affected.

thcv cannabinoid

Where is THCV Found?

Certain strains have more THCV than others. 

Most of those strains that possess this unique Cannabinoid come from long-grown, native or landrace, sativa strains found near and around Africa and the Middle East. 

Through strain selective breeding and more advanced growing techniques, growers today have been able to isolate and enhance the levels of THCV in plants today. 

This is great news for weed science and those that can use THCV for health benefits!! 

By being able to isolate individual compounds such as THCV we are able to better explore the different health benefits they can offer from one another.

Here's a list of some strains to check out with potent levels of THCV:

  • Durban Poison
  • Doug’s Varin
  • Pineapple Purps
  • Durban Cheese
  • Skunk #1

health benefits of THCV

What Are the Health Benefits of THCV?

THCV is being explored to help treat many different treatments for different health issues. 

THCV has different effects on the body than those of other members of the cannabinoid family.

Decreased Appetite

Unlike THC, THCV is proven to suppress one's appetite. When taken in small doses (5-10 mg) THCV has been shown to decrease the want to eat food.

In one study by the Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology the results showed a consistent decrease in appetite.  This could be used for people trying to lose weight or control urges to eat.

Diabetes and Glucose Control

THCV has also been shown in early tests to help with the body’s ability to control and manage glucose absorption through a study done on mice with Type Diabetes 2. 

Seizures and Epilepsy

With the wider acceptance of Cannabis use to treat serious medical issues in the recent decades, one prominent use has been the treatment of tremors and seizures due to diseases such as ALS, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis. 

THCV has also been shown to help reduce and control seizures associated with epilepsy.  In this study THCV was looked at independently to treat seizures. There has been much promising research in the field in the past 10 years. 

Here is another study on cannabinoids that looks at multiple cannabinoids working together to treat seizures and uncontrolled tremors.

Inflammation

The list just keeps growing in positive medical benefits with THCV.  This study shows how THCV can be effective in relieving inflammation in mice. 

With the health benefits of THCV, add those to some of the healthiest ways to consume marijuana and you're set!

Options for Consuming THCV 

As mentioned earlier in the blog, there are certain strains that have higher levels of THCV than others. 

But what if you aren’t able to find those stains at your local dispensary or your local grower decided to grow a different crop this run than your favorite THCV strain? 

Fear not! There are other methods for consuming THCV!

One of our favorites is through edibles. Yes, THCV EDIBLES!

We love this method because the effects you’ll experience will last longer and be more sustained than just smoking. 

Check out our deals on edibles in your area on our homepage.  

If you want to check out THCV in its purest form, we recommend a full THCV exclusive extract.  

While THCV is much more expensive to extract due to lower levels of it found in plant biomass, the process is largely the same.

Like other cannabinoids, THCV is extracted through a chromatography process that uses superfluid liquid solvents such as CO2 or ethanol to separate the compounds from the plant.

The solution is then evaporated with heat under a vacuum to remove all the gas and leave a high-purity THCV concentrate behind. Once extracted, THCV products should be stored at room temperature and away from direct sunlight to preserve potency.

THCV Edibles

While it may take more flower to extract a good amount of THCV, the process of isolating this cannabinoid for edibles has a great perk. 

The boiling point of THCV is 428 degrees F with the boiling point of THC being 315 degrees F.  That’s a full 113 degrees F difference between the two cannabinoids. 

Essentially, you just have to boil off your unwanted THC and you’ll be left with a higher THCV end result. 

The downside to this is that most terpenes are boiled off at far lower levels than either THC or THCV so you won’t really be left with any of those tasty treats. 

If what you’re after is pure THCV though, you’re in luck.

Propane Hash Oil

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 28 August 2021 in Canna Blog

We sure love our marijuana concentrates. Cannabis concentrates are a huge staple in the marijuana industry. With marijuana consumption increasing around the country, more people are either aware of “dabbing/dabs” or are currently hitting one.

Marijuana concentrates are made using a variety of marijuana extraction methods. 

Solvents such as butane, CO2, and propane are used to extract desired compounds from marijuana flower.

Concentrates come in several different forms, but today, we’re going to look at my favorite kind of concentrate known as Propane Hash Oil (PHO). 

Propane’s interesting chemical make-up gives this kind of hash oil potential for maintaining terpene compounds found in the trichomes

Let’s look at PHO a little closer (no, not the Vietnamese soup – although that sounds nice, too)...

propane hash oil

Clean Burning Propane: What is Propane Hash Oil?

If we’re anything like Hank Hill, we love our “propane and propane accessories.” 

Marijuana extracted through propane as the main solvent during the extraction process is called Propane Hash Oil or PHO for short. 

PHO is recognizable by its bright yellow color and is often known as “honey.”

It also tends to have a “buddery” consistency. 

PHO is made using only propane as a solvent. 

Propane’s extremely low boiling point, -43.6ºF, allows extraction specialists to separate more of the terpenes during the concentrate extraction. 

It also removes more of the solvent in the end.

PHO is consumed in a variety of ways: oil rigs, pens, or even joints

propane hash oil meme

PHO vs. BHO: What is the Difference?

Are you a BHO or PHO kind of person? 

What’s the difference? 

Well…

One big difference between PHO and BHO (Butane Hash Oil) is consistency

PHO more often than not will have a buddery consistency (softer) whereas BHO will more likely have a shatter consistency (glasslike, brittle).  

Another difference between the two is the boiling point. Propane has a lower boiling point (43.6º F) than butane (32º F) which means little heat is needed to purge the solvent. 

This temperature difference affects the consistency of the concentrate and makes it much richer in terpenes. 

Propane hash oil is also known for having fewer residual solvents in the concentrate. 

This is a HUGE deal.

PHO Safety

With concentrates, there is always a risk of a gas leak that could spark and cause an explosion. 

PHO extraction tends to be a safer means for companies to operate in a licensed facility. Closed-loop extraction systems ensure propane doesn’t leak. 

how to smoke propane hash oil

How To Smoke PHO

Unlike smoking a bowl, you are going to need a specific set of tools. Tools that will make any wax concentrate cower in fear of you.

The Tools Needed:

  • A dab rig - A small, bong-like smoking apparatus 

  • Nectar collector - A straw-like smoking device

  • Vape Pen - Concentrate vaporizer

When using a Nectar Collector, specifically designed trays/dishes are a must. 

These kinds of products are made out of glass, quartz, or silicone. 

After putting a small dab onto the container, blowtorch the tip of the collector. 

While heated, drag the hot nail across the wax while sucking through the mouthpiece.

Delta 8 vs Delta 10

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 28 August 2021 in Canna Blog

Marijuana is one of nature’s most simple-yet-complex plants aiding humankind. Science only continues to unravel the almost limitless helpful compounds in which marijuana is made up of. This includes the set of compounds known as cannabinoids.

We have our ever-popular THC. 

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known ingredient in the structure of marijuana.  THC is a potent cannabinoid that has mind-altering/hallucinatory effects. It is also known as Delta-9.

Another well-known cannabinoid is CBD. 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most well-known active ingredient in marijuana. 

CBD, by itself, does not have any psychoactive properties and will make someone feel high. It acts more as a sleep aid, relief for depression, anxiety, and PTSD. 

But do you know about Delta-8 THC? What about Delta-10 THC? 

Confused? 

Let’s fix that and look at Delta-8 vs Delta-10 THC.

Delta-9 THC

Delta-9 THC

First, let's start with what we are most familiar with.

Delta-9 THC is the most well-known THC out there. The one everyone flocks to for high percentage numbers

This THC’s full name is Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, but you can see why THC stuck. 

It is a cannabinoid found in marijuana that produces psychoactive effects in a consumer. Usually the association of being “high”.

But this THC is only one of 60 different cannabinoid molecules found in marijuana plants. 

Now let’s look at Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC and compare them to Delta-9.

delta 8 chemical compound

Delta-8 THC

Delta-8 THC is one of the new types of marijuana products gaining popularity with the culture. Consumers love Delta-8 for a calmer high. Delta-8 THC is also legal around the country due to also coming from hemp.

Delta-8 THC has very similar effects to THC, specifically indica strains

People report feeling happiness, euphoria, relief from different pains, and aids with insomnia.

Like regular THC, Delta-8 works intuitively with your body’s natural cannabinoid system. 

The two compounds have a double bond chemical structure. 

That double bond DNA is what is thought to be the producer of “feeling high” or euphoric effects.

Delta-10 THC

Delta-10 THC is an up-and-comer in the marijuana industry. 

Delta-10 is a sativa-like cannabinoid, creating a thought-provoking head high that has a lighter touch than a regular sativa strain

This allows consumers to feel creative/energetic vibes and avoid feelings of paranoia/anxiety that can sometimes come with sativa strains.

Chemically, Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC are cannabinoids that occur naturally in a marijuana plant and even hemp. With variations of THC chemical structures, it all depends on where bonds meet within molecules in the plant. THC (Delta-9) chemically bonds in the 9th carbon chain within the particular molecule. So follows Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC. 

Didn’t know you were going to get a chemistry lesson today, did you?

delta 8 vs delta 10

Delta-8 & Delta-10: Similarities

Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC are both derived from hemp which makes them both completely federally legal. 

They just cannot be above .3% Delta-9 THC, much like CBD.

It’s safe to say that all of the THC family, regardless of Delta variation, will produce a “high” which most are seeking. Delta-8 and Delta-10 will not disappoint in this department. Though neither are as potent as Delta-9.

Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC compounds work and interact with your body’s cannabinoid system.  Both of the compounds when consumed bind to your brain’s CB1 and CB2 receptors. When this occurs, the outcome can produce the ability to maintain your body’s homeostasis.

Delta-8 and Delta-10: Differences

Delta-10 THC produces a sativa-like high. 

It tends to make consumers feel alert, focused, and creative, whereas Delta-8 produces an indica-like effect

Consumers typically feel couch-lock, relaxed/sleepy, and sometimes munchies. Good to know the difference depending on what you're trying to do for the day.

Which is Stronger of the Deltas?

It’s important to understand that intensities between Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC compounds can vary to a certain extent.

Delta-9 THC is well-known to produce psychoactive properties. 

Although, sometimes it can produce unwanted side effects, like paranoia or anxiety.

Delta-8 and Delta-10 are much weaker in comparison to Delta-9 THC.

Delta-8 is known to give consumers an extremely mild high.

With feelings of relaxation and munchies. Only feels like a small buzz, like having a drink or two.

Delta-10 THC is probably the weakest of the THCs.

Delta-10 comes with the benefit of feeling focused and creative, with the feelings of paranoia and anxiety that can typically bring forth.

Hope you took notes because there will be a chemistry test tomorrow!

Cheap Oz

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 27 August 2021 in Canna Blog

Oh, marijuana, how we love thee. Though I’m sure you may get tired of constantly running back and forth to the dispensary. So you say to yourself, “I need to start buying weed by the ounce.”

As the years since legalization has passed, prices on marijuana have continued to decrease in the state of Colorado. 

The cost of weed is lower here than in most other markets. 

Be thankful.

So you’ve decided you are getting an ounce. 

Well, then, let’s explore the wonderful world of Oz – ounces, that is, and we have some cheap oz deals.

I’ll break down ounce pricing for you so you have a better idea of how much you should pay for an ounce (oz) of fine cannabis, as well as locations. 

Let’s find you that cheap oz!

weed is cheaper by the oz

The Legal Limit

It’s always good for me to start by saying that an ounce (oz) of marijuana weighs 28 grams. Some refer to an ounce as a zip, O, or, as we’ve been mentioning, “Oz”. 

Most importantly, one ounce of marijuana is the legal limit one can possess at any time in Colorado.

Ounce Prices From Not Too Long Ago

In the 2000s, marijuana prices fluctuated very widely. 

You could get an ounce for $50 but you could expect it to be some of the lowest quality you could get. 

These cannabis ounces typically had an abundance of leaves, stems, plant material, and very little quality flower.

For higher grade marijuana, the further you lived from the coast, the worse the prices got. Places in the midwest would expect to pay upwards of $650. 

Thank God for marijuana legalization.

cheaper by the ounce

The Art of Buying in Bulk

It might seem like a “duh, Cannasaver”, but buying more weed at once can save lots of money. Think about it – if you are someone going to the dispensary every day and are only grabbing a gram or two at a time that’s about $20 a run. Not to mention gas, traffic headaches, and so forth.

If you were to only spend about $5 more, you could have gotten an eighth and received 1.5 grams more. Having that much more to save aside. Price breaks increase considerably as weight increases. Save up a little more money and you will get much more marijuana for less money!

Dispensaries love giving discounts for bulk purchases as they help dispensaries move products faster allowing for fresher products to come in.

Weed Etiquette

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 26 August 2021 in Canna Blog

Ah yes, the age ol' marijuana smoke sesh. What a delight and how fun!

Friends and family gathering together to let a load off by releasing the daily stresses through the combustion of fine marijuana buds. Such bliss. 

But, like in other aspects of life, marijuana comes with some said and unsaid rules. 

Human culture is surrounded by unsaid guidelines; use the right lane when driving, other than to pass, and cover your mouth when you sneeze. Just to name a couple.

Cannabis culture is absolutely no different. 

Much like with ways to set a dinner table, weed has its own set of etiquette to abide by. 

Let’s remind ourselves to be polite stoners through weed etiquette. 

Our focus is mainly on seshs (sessions) and dispensary trips.

weed etiquette

General Weed Etiquette

To help get your next toke session off without a hitch, here’s the ultimate guide to weed etiquette.

Get it right and your night is certain to be a relaxing journey through a hazy mist, get it wrong and you might find yourself out in the cold. 

Here are our unwritten rules of weed etiquette.

Sharing is Caring

Simple concept really. This is a huge part of acting as a good host; making those around you feel comfortable.

The best kinds of smoke seshs begin an experience which allows people to just be together.

Let Em Know It’s Smoke Time!

Easy. Just holler, “Yo, it's time to smoke!” Simple as that. Just make sure to tell those who are sensitive to smoking whether a strain you are smoking is particularly strong

Add To The Weed Pile

If you are lucky enough to have some stash on you, share! You don’t have to provide all your bud by any means. Maybe just a joint or something similar. 

Feeling Sick? Pass on the Puff!

Marijuana is amazing at helping with many different ailments. Fighting sickness from viruses is not one of them.

Especially in the pandemic era we find ourselves in, keep a distance away from others and don't spread it!

share a joint without germs

Juicy Lips? Clean Them Up!

Smoke the joint, don’t suck on it! If you have a case of juicy lips, wipe them. Sometimes pinching the joint with your fingers and inhaling through the fingers is the best way to keep a joint dry and shareable!

Don’t Burn The Whole Bowl

The nice thing about a bong is that you can get multiple green hits from one bowl.

So, if you’re passing glass and are first in line, control your flame and only light a small corner of the precious pot. Don’t “roast” it! That way, the next few tokers can experience the same joy of “greens.”

Left Is Law

Don’t ask me, just the way it is. Pass that dutchie to the left-hand side.

Camping Has A Place & Time

During the sesh, are you constantly yelled at for chilling with the bowl? You’re camping! Also known as bogarting. 

Take a good, deep hit and let her go. 

Puff, puff, pass. 

Tell your story after you’ve passed it.

Treat The Bong Like Something Precious (It Is)

I feel like those who share bongs don’t share this enough. These devices are typically a little on the pricey side. Treat this thing like a baby because chances are, it probably is your friend's loved one.

If Someone Sits Out, Don’t Harass

The most important aspect of weed etiquette is respecting choices. 

Cannabis culture is a compassionate and considerate culture.

It’s also about acceptance/compassion. 

That being the case, leave the peer pressure out of it. 

Everybody is different.

dispensary etiquette

Etiquette for Dispensary Trips

Now that we’ve reviewed some proper weed etiquette during sessions, let’s have a reminder course on some DOs and DON’Ts while at your nearest dispensary.

Bring Your Government Issued ID and Probably Cash

Like alcohol, marijuana is 21 and up. IDs will be checked, but a state-issued, non-expired license will get you right through those doors.

As for bringing cash, marijuana is not federally legal and therefore doesn’t play nice in the card department, yet (some places they’re accepting debit, though). 

It’s good to look up prices online and get an estimate of the cost beforehand.

Don’t be the person expecting the budtender to cover you with their tips, get cash.

Ask As Many Questions As You Need

Though there are a lot of rules to legal marijuana, most budtenders will absolutely love to set you on your marijuana journey correctly. If you have questions, have them prepared or perhaps written down. They’ll answer every single one you have!

Don’t Be Overly Cocky About Your Knowledge

You may feel insecure because you’re new to dispensaries, but you don’t want to overcompensate. Once again, everyone’s been a greenhorn before, so it’s ok if you’re a little lost.

While you may feel embarrassed to ask “stupid” questions, it’s still a whole lot better than being flippant with a budtender. Walking in and demanding the strongest strain they have can sour the whole experience for everyone in the establishment.

Sure, you may have a good grasp of marijuana, but it’s always useful to chat with the budtender and get their opinion on things. 

Budtenders are there to help, not challenge you. If you try to go past your limits against the advice of budtenders, you’ll just end up feeling foolish — and queasy!

Phones Go Away

Dispensaries have fairly strict “No Camera” policies. Plus, you can probably go 10-15 minutes without it.

Tip Your Budtender!

Like you would a bartender, you should tip your budtender. You can show big appreciation for your budtender with such gestures.

And, Wait to Use Your Weed Products

I know, you NEED to smoke that weed you just bought immediately but laws on public consumption of cannabis still vary. Wait until you're home. 

Happy smoking, you polite stoner, you!

Most Potent Forms of THC

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 26 August 2021 in Canna Blog

When it comes to consuming cannabis there are many routes one can choose from. There is the tried and true tradition of rolling up a joint, or maybe even cracking a “Backwoods” or “Swisher” down the middle and loading that bad boy up with some tasty, ground flower. Or maybe you’d like to try some of those “fire extracts” your buddy has been raving about. Brownies, cookies, Rice Crispy treats; sometimes it seems like more choices than someone may want to make when all you really want is to unwind after a long day and smoke some jazz cabbage. Well, fear not, friends! We here at Cannasaver are here to sift through scientific reporting and many, many smoke sessions to bring you a guide to THC potency and give you our recommendations on what we’ve been puffing on. Here’s our take on the most potent forms of THC for you big doobie dawgs out there.

most potent forms of thc

The Testing

If you’ve ever been to a dispensary, I’m sure you’ve seen those percentage numbers on every different strain at the counter.  

What those numbers mean is that the entire crop of whichever strain you are looking at had to be tested by a Colorado Marijuana approved lab before it is able to be sold at a recreational store.  

  • The first things a lab always tests for are residual pesticides, heavy metals, or other contaminants that may have been left behind during the buds growing period.  

This is fantastic for us as cannabis consumers because we know coming from a reputable source that it is clean, green weed!  

  • The second thing a lab will test for is the potency of the cannabis, extract, or edible that the grower wants to sell. 

In most cases, flowers will typically range from 15% THC to as high as 35% in some strains. 

That’s some chronic weed, man.  

Wax, shatter, distillate, and rosin can range from the mid-70s to mid-90s in the percentage of THC.  

Blast off, baby!! These are your most potent forms of THC. 

Edibles are measured a bit differently in the sense that it’s not a percentage of THC per edible, it is milligrams of THC per serving.

The Flower

Just like you and I, every cannabis plant has its own set of genetics that gives it the physical characteristics and potency that it possesses.  

Some strains come in with much higher and potent THC levels than others. 

Here are some of our favorites:

Here's a deal for one of our favorite strains, Cherry Lime Haze -  $59.99 oz of Cherry Lime Haze 20% THC

This strain is a hybrid blend of Sativa and Indica.  

While it’s not one of the most potent forms of THC, it’s a great choice for a midday smoke break because it only has 20% THC levels.  

It gives a great heady high and tastes great!  

This is a great strain for encouraging creativity and relaxing the body. 

One of our favorite stores, Herbs4you, always stocks a great mix of sativas and indicas at great prices.  

Here, you can talk to a trained "bud-ologist" about the different strains they have for sale.

wax is the most potent form of thc

The Extracts

When it comes to weed and its potency, some have taken the method of getting a “high score” to a new level.  

There are several different ways to consume weed extracts whether it be through shatter, wax, dabs, rosin, distillate, or cartridges.  

All of these products tend to have a much higher level of THC than the flower your grandad used to puff on.  

Wax or shatter is usually made through a hydrocarbon method of extraction giving it a very pure and clean taste.  The rosin is made through a pressure and heat extraction giving it a very terpene-filled earthy taste, and the distillate and cartridges people smoke are a very convenient and tasty way to puff on the go.

Our friends over at The Stone Dispensary have you covered on your wax and shatter needs. 

Right now they have a deal on grams of extract so you can sample a few different flavors and pick your favorite.  

We recommend their ever-potent Wedding Cake.  

As for distillate, one of our favorite, most potent deals is from La Bodega.

They are offering two carts right now for $30.  Cartridges are one of the most potent forms of THC. They’re a great way to smoke high percentage THC on the go.  

They smell great, are discreet, and get you super ripped.

edibles are the most potent forms of thc

Edibles

The edibles available today have come a long way since making a double boiler out of a mixing bowl and pot in your friend's kitchen to make some dank cannabutter.  There was always the one batch of cookies that came out way stronger than anyone expected and got everyone catatonically stoned for the night.  There are some great bakers out there who specialize in getting you baked. 

Edible dosage is measured in milligrams per serving instead of THC percentage.  In general, edibles will keep you high longer but creep up slower than taking a bong rip or smoking a joint.  Your body is able to uptake the THC and cannabinoids through the digestive system giving a great body high along with the head high. 

Check out our friends over at AMCH Denver for a smoking mix and match deal. 

They allow you to pick 4 different edibles for $60!  It's a great way to eat and get the munchies at the same time.  The more you eat, the hungrier you get. 

Gummies are a great way to dose out THC in manageable amounts if you need to be productive.  We love to mix CBD with THC in one tasty treat.  Check out Stone Dispensary for some dank deals on some dank gummies.  These aren't quite the same as the old Flintstones gummies we had as kids but they do pack 50 mg of vitamin THC (not actually a vitamin, don’t come at us). 

Thanks for reading our guide to the most potent forms of THC and have fun testing them out for yourselves.
