How to Order Weed Online Today

How to Order Weed Online 

Yes, this is real. You are really buying weed online. 

To say things have changed since the ‘60s would be an understatement of how far the process of buying weed has truly come. The legalization of cannabis in certain states has transformed buying cannabis into a luxurious experience. Something about being able to walk into an establishment as nice as a Beverly Hills IKEA to buy weed excites me from head to toe. 

Because of COVID, thousands of businesses like ours were pushed to think outside the box to provide a much-needed service to the general public. Doobie is that service.

What to Know About Growing Cannabis

What to Know About Growing Cannabis

Growing weed can be intimidating if you don’t know where to start. By following this guide, you will be able to grow cannabis plants right in your own home. We like to think of growing weed as the ultimate DIY. 

Is it Legal?

When you begin growing cannabis, it’s important to first make sure that you are abiding by local rules and regulations. Many states in the US have laws regulating the size and number of cannabis plants that an individual is allowed to have. 

Which Cannabis Strain Should I Grow?

Great question! There are thousands of cannabis strains to choose from. The three main strains of cannabis are Indica, Sativa, and Hybrids. Indica is known to give a more relaxing effect with a body high and many users prefer using it at night. Sativa makes users feel more energized, can oftentimes be hallucinogenic, and is often used for daytime use. Hybrids tend to be the best of both worlds – they tend to land somewhere in the middle.

Where Should I Grow My Weed?

Growing marijuana outside has its advantages. If you live in a temperate climate, outdoor growing can save a lot of money that would be used for lighting and grow rig costs.  Unfortunately, this means you are also working with the inconsistencies of weather patterns and a cold snap or drought could severely damage your plants and hurt their production.

For beginners, it’s best to grow weed inside where you can have 100% control over the growing conditions. Find a small space in your home like an extra closet, pantry, basement, or garage. When your weed plants are small, you’ll roughly need just enough room for a person to stand in. 

Choosing the Right Soil

Choosing the right soil is a key factor in growing cannabis. By choosing the right soil, you can ensure that your weed plant is receiving all the nutrients it needs. Ideally, cannabis plants need phosphorus, nitrogen, and potassium for optimal growth, but these can be supplemented with a host of other nutrients including calcium, sulfur, and iron. Knowing the proper amounts of each of these nutrients will wildly change how the plant behaves as an end product.

What Kind of Lighting Should I Use to Grow Marijuana?

Cannabis needs a lot of light when growing at peak conditions. In fact, cannabis plants need a minimum of 18 hours of direct sunlight every day. To ensure you have the perfect lighting for the cannabis plant, you may want to buy an artificial lighting rig. Most people opt to buy an artificial lighting rig. This ensures that you have the perfect lighting 24/7 and is especially useful if you live in a colder climate with less sun.

Most growers use 400-600W grow lights, but it’s important to research and find out the best lighting for your specific cannabis strain. Before purchasing a grow light, check your home’s wattage limit. Many homes are limited to 1600W, which could result in power outages if you are growing.

It’s also important to select a space to allow time for the cannabis plant to be in the dark and away from any light sources. If it’s difficult to find a small space with limited light at night, you may opt for a grow tent. Ideal grow tents are light-tight so that no outside light is able to get in. This ensures that the plant doesn’t get confused during the night and is growing optimally.

Sexing Marijuana Plants

When sexing cannabis plants you have three options: male, female, and hermaphroditic. Sexing marijuana plants is important for multiple reasons. First, if you are trying to create seeds through cross-pollination, you need to know which seed is male and which is female. Second, many growers prefer to keep the males separate from the females as it produces a higher quality bud than the females.

If you follow a stem to where the plant meets the stalk, you find the node. For male plants, you will find sacs of pollen at the node. For female plants, you will find small bracts or balls at the node with hair-like stigmas popping out the top. A hermaphroditic plant will have both sexual organs and therefore you will find both female and male organs on the same plant.

When & How to Harvest My Marijuana

Harvesting at different points in the buds’ life cycle will result in different highs. For example, buds harvested earlier tend to have a more energetic and uplifting effect while buds harvested later have a relaxing or sedative effect.

Harvesting is a very important part of growing weed. Harvesting is the only way you’ll ever be able to use your own homegrown cannabis. When harvesting, it’s very important that you cut the stem correctly in order to avoid any unnecessary damage to the plant. Use sharp hand sheers, as a dull blade can leave the plant open to disease or infection. Once your buds are harvested make sure you trim, dry, and cure them for best results.

Cost

It’s important that you consider the costs of growing marijuana before beginning the process. In addition to spending money on the lights and energy to grow your cannabis plant, you may also need to buy additional grow accessories, including: 

  • Soil PH Meter
  • Light Reflectors
  • Grow Tent
  • Climate Control Tools
  • Fan

These items can drive the cost up of growing weed. For example, cannabis grow rigs cost anywhere from $100 for the most basic rig, to $1000+ for more complicated rigs. For first-time growers, it’s important to start small. By starting small, it will bring the cost down and the plant is less likely to die due to a new grower’s lack of experience.

Medical Marijuana & The Chemical Structure of CBD

Cannabis & Its Promising Medicinal Future

The Benefits of Medical Marijuana

Cannabis, also known as marijuana, has a long history of human cultivation and use. Most ancient cultures didn’t use cannabis recreationally, but instead, realized the benefits of marijuana as herbal medicine. In some cultures, cannabis was smoked as part of religious ceremonies and special rituals. 

Today, medicinal marijuana is used all over the world, in many therapies and medical treatments. The essential elements of the cannabis Sativa plant, cannabinoids, and terpenes are currently being studied for their efficacy in helping with a variety of conditions such as pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

The Rise of Commercial CBD

CBD, which is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, is one of the cannabinoid or chemical compounds found in marijuana or hemp.  Interest in CBD has grown rapidly as people are discovering that they can benefit from many of the therapeutic benefits associated with it, without any feeling of being high or stoned. The research on CBD is expanding, but there are currently few clinical studies on the effects of CBD oil. 

One particular form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet syndrome is practically impossible to control but in some cases responds to a CBD-dominant strain of marijuana called Charlotte’s Web. CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta shared the story of one child’s treatment with CBD Oil containing Charlotte’s Web in the 2013 CNN documentary Weed. It is advisable to consult with a doctor or medical professional to find out if CBD is right for you.

THC & Other Cannabinoids

Beyond Cannabidiol, Marijuana has more than 100 additional active components. THC, which is an abbreviation for Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical that gives the “high” that goes along with consuming cannabis. THC itself has proven medical benefits in particular formulations. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved THC-based medications, dronabinol (Marinol®) and nabilone (Cesamet®), prescribed in pill form for the treatment of nausea in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy and to stimulate appetite in patients with wasting syndrome due to AIDS. 

Uses of Medical Marijuana

The most common use for medical marijuana in the United States is for pain control. In particular, many sources report that it is quite effective for the chronic pain that plagues millions of Americans, especially as they age. The best part is that in many cases, Marijuana may be safer, and have fewer negative side effects than opiates. In addition, medicinal cannabis can be used instead of NSAIDs such as Advil or Aleve, for people who can’t take them due to other medical issues. Check with your doctor before replacing prescribed medications with Cannabis.

Researchers continue to study the medical benefits of marijuana. In some cases, cannabis has seen promising results in treating:

  • Acne
  • Anorexia
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Drug addiction and withdrawal
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Parkinson’s disease

Because cannabis can make you hungry, it’s also shown promise in treating conditions or side effects related to a loss of appetite. Medical marijuana is sometimes used as a symptom reliever, and it can make you feel better, and improve your quality of life.

Ways to Take Medicinal Marijuana

Medicinal Marijuana can be taken in a variety of form and applications. The most common include: 

  • Inhalation: vaping and smoking
  • Oral ingestion: oils, tinctures, capsules, and edibles
  • Topical: salves, balms, and patches
  • Suppositories: rectal or vaginal suppositories

Your doctor will determine the frequency of medical marijuana use. Working with a qualified cannabis clinician can help you determine the right treatment route and cannabinoid profile for you.

How to use CBD Oil

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the health and wellness properties of CBD are being studied by scientists and doctors around the world. As a safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is renowned for its medical and therapeutic abilities.

CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active compound: THC, the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of marijuana that have been most studied by scientists.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or “wasted”. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on the receptors in the brain and body.

CBD can actually lessen some of the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high. The fact that CBD is therapeutically effective as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are nervous about trying cannabis for the first time.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

CBD and THC interact with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main ways is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called endocannabinoids – so named because of their similarity to compounds found in the cannabis plant. These endocannabinoids are part of our body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, specific bodily functions, how we experience pain, hunger, stress, and more.

CBD OIL

It’s important to note that CBD is a molecule, not a miracle cure-all. CBD oil has been advertised as a curative for the sick and a preventive for the healthy, an all-purpose palliative for pets as well as people of all ages. Taking CBD alone may not always have the desired therapeutic effect. There is compelling evidence that CBD works best in combination with THC and the full spectrum of other components found in the cannabis plant. CBD oil products and flower with varying levels of THC and CBD are available for smoking or vaping at cannabis dispensaries in states that have legalized the herb for therapeutic use. CBD has a low-risk profile and many people are using CBD as an add-on therapy to their existing treatment plans.

HOW TO USE CBD OIL

Similar to cannabis and its other extracts, CBD oil uses number in the hundreds if not thousands. It can be consumed and or applied in numerous ways. Most options fall into a few general categories, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. You’ll experience different effects if you smoke CBD-rich flower or vape a THC-rich cartridge; swallow a gelcap or drop CBD oil under your tongue.

Everybody processes cannabis a little differently. The diversity of human experience means that finding your ideal form of cannabis consumption may take some experimentation.

The key differences between ways of using cannabis pertain to these questions:

  1. Onset: How quickly will cannabinoids begin to work?
  2. Dose: What’s a reasonable starting dose for CBD?
  3. Effect: Which parts of the body will be most affected?
  4. Duration: How long will the effects of CBD last?

CBD dosage required depends on the quality of the product, the reason for its use, and how we uniquely metabolize or process cannabis. 

HOW CAN I GET CBD PRODUCTS?

While using cannabis products can be fun and experimentative, getting products can oftentimes be a hassle. Most cannabis products will be found in cannabis dispensaries in states where the medicinal usage of cannabis is legal. In these dispensaries, you can find countless products ranging from flower and edibles to vape pens to gel capsules. 

But in the day and age of technology, why should you have to get up from your couch to enjoy cannabis? Doobie strives to solve this issue by delivering cannabis right to your doorstep! In addition to delivering products, Doobie also helps cater your cannabis journey towards your specific taste, so you can have the best cannabis experience without having to drive to the store!

Doobie – Happiness Delivered

Doobie Rolls Into St. Louis, Missouri

Doobie Rolls Into St. Louis, Missouri

Doobie is entering the St. Louis, Missouri market, and we wanted to provide a little history on the Missouri relationship with the cannabis plant and the latest status of cannabis legalization in the Show Me “Your Weed” State.

Cannabis Legalization History

So is marijuana legal in Missouri? Not quite. While recreational cannabis use is still illegal for residents of Missouri, the state has been making progress recently towards full cannabis legalization. In 2014, through Senate Bill 491, cannabis was decriminalized to some extent, but the bill did not take effect until January 2017. While SB 491 reduced penalties for some cannabis offenses, possession of cannabis was still treated as a misdemeanor crime. 

Also in July 2014, the Missouri Medical Marijuana Bill (House Bill 2238) was signed into law by Governor Jay Nixon. This bill legalized the use of CBD oil to treat seizures. The measure set a 4 percent tax on medical cannabis sales with proceeds earmarked for services for military veterans. This legislation “allows the Department of Agriculture to grow industrial hemp for research purposes and allows the use of hemp extract to treat certain individuals with epilepsy.” HB 2238 only allows hemp extract that contains at least 5% cannabidiol (CBD) and no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

In November 2018, Missouri residents made a giant step towards Missouri marijuana legalization and approved Amendment 2 to legalize the medical use of cannabis. Passing with 66% of the vote, the ballot measure allows qualified patients to purchase no less than 4 oz of cannabis per month and to grow up to six cannabis plants.

On October 17, 2020, Missouri had its first licensed sale of medical cannabis.

More recently, as reported by Marijuana Moment and Fox, Republican Representative Shamed Dogan introduced a joint resolution (HJR 30, or the Smarter and Safer Missouri Act) in December 2020, where voters in Missouri could decide in 2022 whether to legalize marijuana. The proposal would replace the existing medical cannabis law and replace it with a simpler system that would cover both patients and adult consumers. Both the House and Senate would need to approve the legislation for the legalization question to go to voters. HJR 30 would legalize marijuana for adults 21+ and establish a commercial cannabis industry, taxing legal sales at 12 percent. Regarding social equity, there is no mention in the proposal.

Drogan is proposing low tax rates to prevent Missouri residents from buying from the illicit market. “If you make that tax too high, then you still have a pretty robust black market,” Dogan said.

St Louis Cannabis Legalization History

Named after King Louis IX of France, St. Louis is referred to as the Gateway to the West. With a population of almost 300K, St. Louis is the 2nd most populous city in Missouri behind Kansas City. 

In St. Louis, there had been some earlier reductions in sentencing for crimes of cannabis. In April 2013, the St. Louis Board of Aldermen voted to allow police to cite individuals instead of arresting them for small amounts of cannabis. Cited persons would be subject to a fine and processed in municipal court versus state court. This law went into effect in June 2013. 

In February 2018, penalties were further reduced when the Board voted to set a $25 fine for possession of up to 35g of cannabis, and in April of 2021, St. Louis City Council voted to reduce the penalties for certain amounts of recreational cannabis possession (35g).  It is reduced from a fine of not more than $1,000 or one year in jail or both to a fine of not more than $100.

How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card

Getting your medical marijuana card in Missouri is a much easier process than in its neighbor, Illinois. Patients suffering from any chronic or debilitating condition for which pharmaceuticals are normally prescribed may be eligible for a medical marijuana card. The law allows patients to receive qualification through “the professional judgment of a physician,” which means a patient can get a medical card even if a doctor believes cannabis could help with an ailment that isn’t included on Missouri’s list of qualifying conditions listed below:

  • Migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • PTSD
  • Cancer
  • Terminal illnesses
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV/AIDS

Also, Missouri doctors do not have to provide a long-term relationship with their patients to certify they have a qualifying condition to receive a marijuana medical card.

Patients can easily get their medical card online by visiting sites like Elevate Holistics or Heally, where for between $100-$150 for the year, patients can be certified to receive a medical card. After the online visit, the recommendation will be available within an hour for download. Patients must next register for the Missouri Medical Marijuana Program using the online Complia application portal. The Physicians Certification for Medical Cannabis Form will need to be submitted via the application portal on the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ online registry along with a $25 fee. The Missouri State Health Department will mail you a Missouri medical card in 30 days or less. 

Once fully approved by the state, patients can purchase up to 4oz of cannabis per month, and patients who register to grow have the option to grow up to 6 plants.

According to Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), as of January 2021, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reported that the medical cannabis program had 100,000 patients registered, who are served by 56 approved dispensary facilities.

Doobie is partnering with Jane Dispensary in the St. Louis market, and they will be bringing their medical marijuana delivery service to several local cities and counties (including Saint Louis City, Saint Louis County, Saint Charles County, Franklin County, Jefferson County, Warren County, and Lincoln County). Getting marijuana from your favorite St. Louis dispensary just got a little bit easier.

What are Phytocannabinoids?

What are Phytocannabinoids?

Phytocannabinoids are any cannabinoid produced in the trichomes of a cannabis plant. When extracted from the plant and consumed, phytocannabinoids interact with our body’s receptors to produce numerous psychotropic and therapeutic effects. All of the plants within the cannabis genus contain compounds called “phytocannabinoids” and there are dozens of different ones. Both plants and animals produce their own cannabinoids. Those produced inside the mammalian body are called endocannabinoids. The effects you’ll experience depend on which phytocannabinoids and terpenes are prominent in this strain.

So what are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a class of lipophilic molecules that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Phytocannabinoids, or exogenous cannabinoids, are plant-derived cannabinoids produced by glandular trichomes covering the surface of the cannabis plant. Trichomes are responsible for producing all of the plant’s desirable compounds. More than 100 cannabinoids have been discovered in the cannabis plant, though research into their effects has only been done on the most prominent ones, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

So why does this happen within the cannabis plant?

We know that the human body produces cannabinoids for survival through the activation of homeostasis and the cannabis plant does the same but in far more direct response to external pressures. Phytocannabinoids, produced by the cannabis plant’s trichomes, cover the surface of the plant as a defense against environmental hazards such as insect predators and harsh weather conditions. The predators that try to eat the plant end up “high” and prevent the animals from continuing to eat it. 

Phytocannabinoid benefits include a wide range of medicinal and therapeutic applications. While there is still a lot of research that needs to be done, a sizable body of scientific research suggests that phytocannabinoids can reduce pain, anxiety, and inflammation, and provide other healthful benefits. Here are the two most popular phytocannabinoids and their benefits:

Delta-9-THC

Commonly known as THC — is the main intoxicating component of cannabis. THC intoxication has been shown to increase blood flow to the prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain responsible for decision-making, attention, motor skills, and other executive functions. The exact nature of THC’s effects on these functions will vary from person to person. When THC binds to CB1 receptors in the brain’s reward system, it can trigger feelings of euphoria. Much of THC’s ability to relieve pain is due to its interaction with CB1 receptors in the midbrain.

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD), the second-most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, has many potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-anxiety, and anti-epileptic properties. Cannabidiol can be sourced from both marijuana and hemp plants.
