Colorado Weed Delivery

Colorado Weed Delivery

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 05 December 2020 in Canna Blog - Latest News

As COVID continues to spread across the nation, Colorado lawmakers try to make Colorado weed delivery legal statewide. With dispensaries continuing to thrive, the spread of the virus becomes a bigger problem with each customer helped at the facilities. With the question of how do we lessen social contact in the air, the answer seems pretty clear, allowing weed delivery in the state of Colorado. But what exactly is the status of Colorado weed delivery?

Colorado Weed Delivery Law Passed in 2019

In late 2019, a bill was passed allowing for marijuana delivery, starting with medical marijuana delivery. This bill began a two-year process to provide dispensaries with proper licensing that will allow them to make weed deliveries to medical customers and to later follow with recreational customers. Gov. Jared Polis described marijuana delivery in Colorado as a tactic to reduce impaired driving. The process began on January 2nd, 2020.

Other States Delivering Weed 

Each state regulates the marijuana delivery services closely and collects taxes accordingly.

California, Oregon, Maine, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Michigan all currently allow for the delivery of marijuana to recreational customers.

Every state will tackle the delivery service situation differently with some form of licensing being required to do so. 

California is the forerunner for acquiring the correct licensing, with hundreds of dispensaries currently licensed to deliver cannabis legally. For marijuana businesses to acquire legal cannabis delivery licenses, they must meet strict state safety and quality standards to move forward. As a consumer, you can rest assured that you will receive quality and safe products.

But where is weed delivery in Colorado?

Is Recreational Marijuana Delivery Legal in Colorado?

According to the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division, delivery of recreational weed in Colorado is absolutely not legal (yet).

Right now, Colorado weed delivery is limited to only medical marijuana dispensaries delivering to medical patients. Current recreational delivery services offered are illegal and are most likely trying to scam you. Unregulated weed deliveries have many physical risks involved with purchasing such as potential robberies involved with criminals making fraudulent delivery services and quality of the product not being as good as dispensary-grade products.

Also, not knowing where the product was grown, dried out correctly, etc. adds to the dangerousness of buying this way. Many Colorado cities simply haven’t brought marijuana delivery into a local law spotlight. Currently, the only two dispensaries offering legally permitted marijuana delivery are Native Roots and Helping Hands but the services are for medical patients only.

Laws Being Made for Colorado Weed Delivery Services

The real reason it seems that marijuana delivery is not legal yet in Colorado is simply that there are no laws for marijuana delivery. Lawmakers are currently working out the intricate details for the law. Marijuana laws are so new to Colorado that every regulatory decision sets a precedent for other states following marijuana legalization. With this, Colorado has been incredibly slow in the state’s approach to extending new allowances in the cannabis field. With agencies such as Cannabis against COVID, people are working to spread marijuana to people all around while drastically reducing the spread of coronavirus.

The initial goal as described by the campaign was to petition the State of Colorado to legalize home deliveries for recreational marijuana and add a temporary $20 surcharge to each delivery, which would go directly to COVID relief agencies. The group also pointed to the economic hardships imposed by the pandemic, noting that cannabis sales in Colorado suffered a significant dip in sales due to the lockdown measures. COVID-19 has done a lot to turn the spotlight on how important it is to make cannabis items accessible to those who are homebound, many of which need cannabis for all sorts of medical reasons.

The Timeline for Colorado Weed Delivery

As of right now, recreational marijuana delivery in Colorado is slated to debut in 2021.

This also depends on each Colorado county opting into the law. Being the case, there will be a slow political process in the state deciding whether or not marijuana delivery is appropriate for each locality. With COVID continuing to be present, this alone might be enough of a reason for the Colorado legislature to stop dragging their feet when considering the delivery laws. Though not intended to be a response to the COVID-19 outbreak in late 2019, Colorado cannabis delivery services may well be helping to stop the spread of the highly infectious coronavirus.

The Light in Sight for Marijuana Delivery

The Aurora City Council is advancing a proposal to legalize cannabis delivery for individuals who are of legal cannabis consumption age. On December 7, 2020, the Aurora City Council voted 8-2 to allow for licensed marijuana retailers to deliver recreational marijuana in Aurora. Under the proposal, weed delivery would be allowed from 8 am to 8 pm.

No more than one ounce of marijuana can be delivered to a customer in one day. The proposal will see a final vote later this month.

If passed, Aurora would be one of the first Colorado cities to permit weed delivery.

Should the Aurora city council pass the proposal later this month, marijuana delivery could begin in the community as early as January 2021.

The Colorado weed delivery bill gives discretion to local governments in the state to decide whether or not to opt into marijuana delivery. The realities imposed by the coronavirus pandemic may increase pressure on more Colorado cities to hop on board the bill. 

As of right now, marijuana delivery services are tentatively scheduled for some time in 2021.

What is Live Resin?

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 in Canna Blog

Oh, marijuana concentrates, how potent ye be. With dabbing culture rising with every legal state, these products tend to match the sales numbers of marijuana flower neck and neck. From wax to shatter, dab-o-holics have a grand variety of products to choose from. So pure. So, 710.

Whether you're just beginning your adventure into THC concentrates or a captain among canna-connoisseurs; live resin is truly a treat that shouldn’t be overlooked. Don't worry, by the end of this, you’ll be drooling for some of this juicy honey. 

Before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s look at what live resin really is.

What is Live Resin?

Live resin is actually one of the “newer” forms of concentrate; being made originally around 2012. The concentrate also tends to be pretty dang potent. 

It is extracted from plant matter which is quickly chopped then frozen after being harvested. The freezing process preserves as many of the plant’s natural cannabinoids/terpenes as absolutely possible. Live resin contains a much larger cannabinoid/terpene content than cannabis concentrates such as wax or shatter.

The live resin maintains the original aromas and flavors of the harvested plant.

Live resin gets its name as many other concentrates do; by their consistencies and textures. Live resin ranges somewhere between sauce and wax in terms of consistency. A resin if you will. It tends to range from light gold to dark gold in color.

How Is Live Resin Made?

As mentioned before, live resin begins with freshly chopped Mary Jane then flash-freezing the plant materials. Freezing is achieved through a slow dip into liquid nitrogen or by dry ice. This is much like a marinating process with meat. Brings out all the flavor. Flash freezing marijuana ensures that the trichomes, cannabinoids, and terpenes are sealed with satisfaction. 

Much like other concentrates, Live resin plant matter passes through a solvent and is then vaporized out of the final live resin product. Live resin production is a delicate process where professionals in a lab (science, right?) use a specific kind of BHO technique. The final live resin product is purged at lower temperatures than other concentrates which helps make them cleaner to hit.

Live Resin Vs. The Other Concentrates

Like with live rosin, live sauce, live batter, live resin contains the word “live” in the title based on these particular concentrates having frozen cannabis plants as the main component. 

Live resin uses butane during the extraction process which makes it not solventless. Whereas, something like live rosin is solventless due to using heat and pressure to remove shiny trichomes.

Live resin starts with fresh marijuana straight out of the gates and into the freezer. Whereas, something like a sauce may have cured flower or fresh cannabis matter. This sometimes means sauce lacks the higher levels of tasty terpenes found in live resin products. 

How To Enjoy The Nectar of Gods

Get Your Dab On

Most canna-consumer prefer dabbing live resin. You will most likely want a rig or dab straw.

Vape it, Yo

Another popular way of enjoying concentrates is vaping. You can add live resin to your vape pen. You’ll want to keep your temperatures low between 300-400 degrees Fahrenheit for maximum taste.

Potent Bowl Toppers

Hey, when all else fails or you just want a great way to spice up your joint or bong, sprinkle some live resin in your jay or bowl.
