July 2017 | Club M | Volume 18 | ESCAPE


Volume 18 of The MBox by ClubM brought us, ESCAPE

A collection of items meant to help you inspire your own cannabis staycation! Check out these ESCAPE inspired innovations! From multipurpose lighters to top shelf cannabis you were sure to ESCAPE.


Half Lit Pineapple flavored cannabis infused lollipop

These cannabis infused tasty treat have  25 mg of THC, are organic and gluten, dairy, soy, nut, artificial dye, & GMO-free! Pineapple Paradise was fantastically fruity.

What makes these lollies different from the average edible is they have included a stick with cannabis seed inside. You plant the stick and grow your own cannabis plant. How fun is that?!

With that dose and fun marketing appeal these would make a great patient gift. I emphasize “patients” as we feel 5 mg THC is more appropriate a dose for a new consumer. But feel a more experienced consumer would appreciate the novelty and better manage the dosage at that 25 mg level.

*We plan to blog our stick growth progress.

 


1/8th JUST HERB – Headband

This heady frosty flower lives up to its reputation of a heavy sedative and pain reliever. It provided a great night of restful sleep as well. I don’t always find the Headband strain consistent but this one came through true to form.

The spongy buds were dense and smoked well in our water piece and rolled in joints.  Keep the container closed because it is definitely LOUD.

We recommend you try this strain out if you are looking for a sedative type outcome, like a relaxant or sleep aid. Higher tolerance consumers should find it more manageable.

 

 

Other JUST HERB strains are available on the ClubM website

Lighter Bro, turn your lighter into a utility tool!

This handy little MacGyver-type gadget is 7 tools in one multi-tool. Admittedly we have used this several times already. I like it because it gives more weight to the lighter making it easier to find in the bottom of whichever bag it has been transferred into. I’ll take the brass gold tone casing versus a plain plastic lighter any day! This would definitely come in handy if one needed to make an #ESCAPE


60 ml Papa & Barkley Massage oil (3:1 THC:CBD)

Oh do I love this stuff. I use it regularly on myself, it is convenient to rub some oil on my neck and shoulders relieving the pain and muscle tension I have in that area. The best part being the almost immediate effects, I’d like to say seconds but I will commit to saying full relief in minutes.

My husband says it takes the edge off his repetitive motion pain but does not provide the level of relief I experience for my neck and shoulder tension upon use of the Papa & Barkley oil.

This 3 mg THC to 1 mg CBD massage oil carries the Papa & Barkley signature medicinal scent, be mindful of transferring to bed sheets or clothing post-use as it is an oil. I have not experienced any staining issues when using.

Try Papa & Barkley transdermal patches and relief balms as well!

Pura Vida Health infused Sunny Seeds & Palm Tree pre-roll

In addition to the usual high quality Pura Vida Health products we have come to know and love, such as these lovely, salty, Sunny Seeds, this MBox delivers a new surprise! Palm Tree pre-rolls: cannabis pre-rolls, rolled in cured cannabis leaf.

These were an awesome ‘Netfilx & Chill’ combo. (Remember: Stay hydrated!)

The pre-roll was potent, an interesting flavor, and we will definitely be ordering more. Would be great to take to a party.

 

 

  Be sure to check out all of Pura Vida Health’s other products in the ClubM store!

Tokin, Battery kit & Cannabis oil 0.5 g disposable cartridge

(in Pina Colada, Sativa)

This flavorful cannabis oil has been a great daytime sativa and is reminiscent of tropical drinks with its Pina Colada flavor.

It is always appreciated when you get the battery kit that comes with the cartridge, we seem to have better luck with functionality and use with paired battery and cartridge set-ups.

Love that gold foil Palm Tree branding!

 

 

 


Thank you as always to ClubM, you have done it again, provided a box to #escape and #enjoy to create #perfectmoments with our MBox innovations, we cannot wait to see what next month has in store…

 

June 2017 | ClubM | Volume 17 | PRIDE

June 2017 | ClubM | Volume 17 | PRIDE


ClubM Volume 17 brings members PRIDE for June 2017.

Our adventure begins with a powerful message of positivity and mention of the delights found inside this month’s PRIDE edition. True to form with the M Box wax seal and personalized content menu of sought after items.

 

 

 

 

Nestled inside PRIDE we found an adorable portable bubbler in a carry case, 1:1 ratio tincture, an energy shot, water alternative that helps keep your piece clean from residue, a coveted Nativ (Born in Venice CA) pre-roll and a full 1/8 of birthday cake kush cannabis. Everything you need to create your own shared #perfectmoments. (Please tag us @femmenuri in your MBox social media posts!!!)

 


Martian Bubbler

MJ’s Arsenal’s adorable glass piece was such a delight! Comes in a padded carrying case with a quality zipper and carabiner attached. This glass bubbler can be worn as a necklace and is pleasantly light weight.  Great for smoking pre-rolls to lessen the heat from the combustion. Simple to use; Fill with water (in our case Piece Water), place pre-roll in holder, inhale from mouthpiece. This was appreciated as an inclusionary part of this box.


Nativ White Label

The always sought after Nativ products!!! These pre-rolls are known for their high quality ingredients as well as their beautiful sleek branding. This Do-Si-Dos didn’t disappoint, heady and relaxing. I really love having this container left to re-use as a pre-roll container. I’m excited to try the Black & Grey Label as well! I am especially thankful they can be found on the ClubM storefront!


Hi-Ness

I don’t do energy drinks so I give these to my husband. Definitely serve cold as to do the product justice. Carl reported:

”   …   ”

 


Piece Water

Boy did this come in handy between the martian bubbler and that Nativ white label! It was like when you are playing slots and that first row stops on cherry, and you are like, “no way!”. Then the second row, BAM cherry. You are thinking, “nope, no way, it’ll bust for sure.”, then, ding! ding! ding! That third row slammed to a halt on cherry too!!! WooHoo, the trifecta! We can smoke right this very second!!!! Wait, who has a lighter? Matches? Correction: We can smoke this as soon as we locate a lighter.


Leaf California

LEAF California provided us with a lovely Birthday Cake Kush. This nice indica dominant strain was relaxing but not sleepy for me, I found it pleasant and mildly euphoric. Weighing in at an exact 3.5 grams by our scale this dense nug was frosty and aromatic. It came in a chiffon satchel inside a cosmetic looking container. I appreciated the testing results included on the packaging.


Symmetry 121

Therapy Tonics & Provisions continue to impress me, I have only recently been introduced to their line of tinctures and I am loving what I am seeing so far. This 1:1 is an improvement from my previous favorite 1:1 tincture. Symmetry delivered on its promise of balance, I found myself relaxed, it managed my pain, while keeping me clear-headed and alert. This is why I love tinctures, the quick onset like smoking or vaporizing without the oral damage. This tincture being MCT based it acts quickly like my favored alcohol tinctures minus the alcohol. But like I mentioned fast acting as they do not have to processed by the liver first. Under the tongue 30-60 seconds and I feel the effects personally in minutes.


Thank you once again ClubM for another edition of the M Box, PRIDE included a variety of fun new items. A new set of tools for creating our own shared #perfectmoments

May 2017 | ClubM | Volume 16 | GRACE

ClubM in May sent members, GRACE; A beautifully curated box for Volume 16.


Grace provided the luxury experienced promised with ClubM membership.

May’s box was full of grace.  A thoughtful collection for Volume 16.


A luxury line-up with variety. From tinctures to flower GRACE has it all.

This bevvy of beauties was a delight to receive in Volume 16 of the ClubM box. Members receive two (2) tinctures, an 1/8 of cannabis, 1/2 g oil cartridge, three (3) tins of edibles, mints and a tin of ice hash with premium cannabis pre-rolls.


1/2 gram cannabis oil cartridge (battery & USB charger not shown)

Potters Cannabis Co – 500 mg cannabis oil cartridge, Pink Champagne

This potent vape cartridge had a delightful taste and smell. For all our Kurvana loving ladies out there, here is your next new favorite. Clean hitting and beautifully smooth this heady oil has proven a wonderful relaxant. If you are a consumer or preferred user of vape cartridges try and get your hands on one of these. They have a playlist of flavors that will leave you wanting to try them all.


Two 1 oz. tinctures

      

Cordial Organic tinctures in, Balance 60 mg THC & Unwind 375 mg THC

These artisanal blends were great dosing for fun cannabis cocktails, Cordial Organics also carries cannabis bitters for even more infusion opportunities. Made with organic cold pressed hemp oil and cannabis these high quality tinctures behave much like edibles with a little slower on set, especially if blended in beverages or added to food.

The branding is reminiscent of old apothecary labels and brown bottles. An appropriate authentic look for these artisanal tinctures.


1/8 oz Cannabis

Just Herb – Headband 22% THC

This heady hybrid came in an adorable old fashioned branded flip lock glass jar. The Headband strain is a hybrid but we caution new consumers to compare it more to an indica-dominant effect. Always a pleasure to have a full 1/8 of cannabis in the box, so many possibilities! We especially appreciate brands that include functional re-usable packaging.


1/8 oz ice hash with premium cannabis in 5 pre-rolls

Hepburns 5 pack – Premium ice water hash & cannabis pre-rolls in Carmel Jack & Kashmir Jack

These petite power packed pre-rolls were our favorite delight found in GRACE. Hand Rolled with clean ice water hash and cannabis from Nor Cal. Who can resist the gorgeous branding and handy tin? Let’s be honest, being in possession of one of these tins means something. The incomparable, original, ice water hash, hand rolled joints, that are Hepburn’s, made with love. A Nor Cal luxury item now available from ClubM.

What do you do with your left over hepburn’s tins? (Leave us a comment)


3 tins of infused mints

   

Breez Mints in Royal (5 mg), Original (20 mg) & Cinnamon CBD (5 mg, 1:1)

Infused mints are clever and great for microdosing. Not only can you medicate discreetly but you can freshen your breath while you are at it. These funny little mints are great for on-the-go as a Mom, especially the cinnamon CBD with a 1:1 ration I can count on. The snap top tins also had an old candy store feel to them, low dose mints are a great way to experiment with micro-dosing too.

April 2017 | ClubM | Vol. 15 | SMOKE

For the month of April ClubM brought us SMOKE, a sexy assemblage of smoke inducing products. From top quality pre-rolls, to smoked barbecue potato chips, to accessories, we acquired all we needed to smoke.


Let’s start with this month’s accessories, a smoke grey steel grinder and a travel one hitter by Lock & Load.

This 2”l grinder has four parts and comes with a scraping tool in the trichome or kief catcher on the bottom. You place your cannabis in the top part, grind it into the next level, open at the second section to empty your now ground cannabis. Any parts that make it through that screen level are going to be potent, be advised. After a few grindings you may have enough in that bottom catcher to scrape out and add to your next smoke. It is quite the efficient little device and is highly recommended for your grinding needs.

The glass Lock & Load one hitter is great for on the go, it is small making it discreet. You place a small amount of cannabis in the end with the threads for the cap and smoke it like a pre-roll. We appreciated the end cap when not in use being you won’t likely clean immediately after use. It is nice to be able to cap the used end until it can be cleaned. Always clean your smoking tools!


Our selection of pre-rolls for Volume 15 are sleek and diverse, smoking them all was enjoyable in their own way.

I have to start with Bloom Farms, holding to their usual high standards this sultry, thick smoke came in a lovely box stored in a cone tube, strike anywhere match included. A hand rolled whole flower pre-roll of OG Kush (Hybrid) tested at 26.3% THC and 0.14% CBD.
Bloom Farms doesn’t disappoint, it was a fragrant, tasty and potent smoke to be sure.

The Illuminatus Red pre-roll has some truly superb flower and is a superior Blue Dream. As a sativa I appreciated the subtle effects without the amped out feeling. These pre-rolls look much more like traditional cigarettes but are indeed an all flower pre-roll, do not mistake them for spliffs. I still don’t know how I feel about the filters, as much as I appreciate the idea of the filter it still feels like a cigarette.

Rocket Pre-Rolls win for best concept put into action. How many times have you been unable to finish a smoke only to now have resonated leftovers far too valuable to throw away. Oh the humanity! So these folks provided a solution, a single smoke pre-roll, just enough elevation for a party of one. Each pack comes as a pack of ten pre-rolls, a long cardboard filter and short pre-roll end of premium indica flower. While looking more into these rockets I noticed on social media regular smokers bend the filter, for better grip, better inhalation, I don’t know but it did help with the harsh heat when inhaling towards the end.


Also included was an 1/8th of True Humboldt‘s 2016 Golden Tarp winner, Sour OG with True Humboldt branded rolling papers, for those looking to roll their own customized smoke. This strain was great for relaxation and pain but didn’t make me sleepy, felt indica dominant to me in effects for the most part. It was nice to have a full eighth of 22.2% THC lab tested cannabis in this month’s box.

Yummi Karma was a treat, I haven’t been fortunate enough to try their edibles before so admittedly I was excited they were included in SMOKE. These potato chips did not disappoint, they definitely had a cannabis taste to them but here is the crazy part, it WORKS, like the flavor, whatever barbeque spices they are using really compliment the herby flavor and they are scrumptious!!! I’d go easy on them if you are a lightweight, as for myself, about of a third of the bag was an ideal dose. Onset didn’t take long, maybe 20 minutes and euphoric elevation with clear head lasted hours (motor skills were tested so no aerobics or ninja practice). I cannot wait to try more Yummi Karma treats and scoop up another bag of potato chips from ClubM’s online store!


This concludes my review of April’s ClubM box, SMOKE. I hope you enjoyed it and I encourage you to sign up for your own box today, May’s box GRACE is going to memorable to be sure. Thank you ClubM for curating another month’s worth of #perfectmoments.

March 2017 | ClubM Box | Volume IVX, EXCHANGE

ClubM Box | Vol. IVX | EXCHANGE

EXCHANGE brings us a collaboration between the Emerald Exchange & ClubM beautifully crafted to complement one another. The Emerald Exchange experience being of community and sharing Northern California craft to a Southern California audience suits this gal just fine. To have a ClubM box cultivated with vendors from the event was a wonderful way to commemorate a piece of cannabis history.

After reading and removing the cover letter the true bounty of this month’s box is revealed. Cultivators from Humboldt, Sonoma and Mendocino are represented with premium cannabis flower, concentrates and edibles.

Redwood Roots (4) .5 gram SFV OG pre-rolls

These cleverly packaged pre-rolls provided a nice level headed, muscle relaxing experience. A true San Fernando Valley OG.

High Street Teas English Breakfast tea 25 mg THC

Ohhhhh ladies, I mean look at this branding! BEE-U-tea-Full! (She also offers other blends) Such a discreet and comforting way to medicate, especially for those of us who love tea! Imagine the possibilities, what a tea party you could host with this tea!

The Jelly Shamans Super Berry Jam with Hemp derived 40 mg CBD

The Jelly Shamans do it again, with their small, artisanal batches, their products are sublime. The taste may have you eating it straight from the jar! Fear not, since it is hemp derived CBD you’d be just fine.

PURR glass smoking tip

For a patient who enjoys smoking pre-rolls or joints I found this device convenient, it is easy to clean and can be used more than one way. I prefer you use mine as an additional tip to any pre-roll.

Shine On Farms 1 g Headband pre-roll

Advertised as a potent hybrid I found it a mildly sedative overall relaxing strain.

Deviant Dabs Shatter 1 g

This fantastic floral shatter was a delight, a pleasant, euphoric effect with mild pain management. It is a wonderful social selection for a higher tolerance patient like myself.

Green Goat Farms Cannabis oil .5 g

Wow, this is the first concentrate I have ever smelled that was so similar to actual cannabis flower, super terpy, I loved it! Heavy sedative but creative and clear headed effect for me. Great bouquet, clean taste.

Satori Dark Chocolate 90 mg THC (10 mg pieces)

A little candy bar that goes a long way, these 10 mg squares pack a punch! Blended with premium cacao you can smell upon opening. The effects did not take long for me. Since learning how edibles become more potent as digested I am telling you as a higher tolerance user, I FEEL this 10 mg. Make sure to have a back up dark chocolate nearby because the taste will have you considering eating more than it would be advisable. Duly noted.

Humboldt’s Finest 1 g pre-roll

Humboldt’s Finest provided a full gram pre-roll as their addition to this Emerald Exchange collaboration for March 2017’s Vol. IVX ClubM box, EXCHANGE. A creative addition to this luxury subscription line-up.

We hope you enjoy your #perfectmoments as much as we do. If you don’t already belong to ClubM you can join here: CLICK ME

February 2017 | Club M box | Vol. XIII SWOON

In February Club M brought us Volume 13, Swoon, including products from 2wnty3, Therapy Tonics & True Humboldt.

The inclusions in this box certainly made us SWOON, from smooth cannabis oil cartridges to frosty flowers, a sweet gold flaked milk chocolate with 175 mgs of THC and a cannabis infused frappuccino-like drink.


As with each and every box the intention letter is an important part of the box opening ritual each month. I really loved this month’s letter speaking to gratitude in reference to our experiences and the intention of SWOON for February’s M box. Keeping the ultimate luxury experience in mind it is always printed on high quality stock and comes with the official Club M red wax seal.


Let’s start with the flower, in True Humboldt style these fragrant crystallized flowers were a nice and easy sativa dominant hybrid. It kept me a bit relaxed but not sleepy. Notably not high functioning, more of a  A Netflix and Chill selection.


These smooth oil cartridges are swoon-worthy, they are nearly flavorless and no burn on inhalation, notable. Granted I am not a fan of the battery kits, I use my carts on a temperature adjustable battery I picked up for about $20, this allows me to gift my extra battery kits to patients in need.

We were provided a Hybrid, OG Super Lemon Haze and Sativa, Tangie oil cartridge. These sexy products also contain a high quality cannabis oil. I honestly have not experienced anything like it; Nearly flavorless and smooth as silk.

2twnty3 went the extra step and provided us with a QR code to access a full lab-tested strain profile for your oil cartridge, how cool is that?


Admittedly I was excited about trying the Therapy Tonics Vanilla Caramel cannabis coffee, at 80 mgs I wanted to try an experiment. I consumed 1/3 of the bottle every 20 minutes. My effects lasted over 6 hrs, this included pain relief and great energy. It was not too much like you might imagine combining a sativa and caffeine. I expected a crazy espresso type result but it was more like a real relaxed high functioning state.

So the taste, everyone wants to know what it tastes like, I felt like this was along the lines of a shot of whiskey in your dessert coffee, you know it’s in there after tasting the sweet creamed coffee, that whiskey shot after burn, and I use burn in the mildest sense. I will definitely purchase more of this cannabis coffee.


Gold leaf Chocolate Heart, 175 mg by Medi CrockeRx

I ate about a 1/3 of this very potent chocolate and peaked about 2 1/2 hours in. This is a wonderful sleep aid and I have at least 2 more doses for future use on a night we really need to sleep. Remember the edibles are more potent and last longer once passed through your liver.


This concludes Volume 13 from Club M, I was charmed by Swoon’s smooth and sexy luxury products this month and and grateful for the #perfectmoments created.

 

As always, many thanks to Club M for their continued dedication to elevating the cannabis experience.

Femme Nuri Review – Closed Door Supper Club º1 | SWOON

Closed Door Supper Club º1 | SWOON

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

A Closed Door Supper Club.


On a chilly evening in North Park a gathering of like-minded individuals came together for the first in a series of infused dinners sponsored by Club M. In conjunction with A Gal and her fork and the theme of the month for February, Swoon, a six course meal was designed and prepared by local chefs Hanis Cavin & Colin Murry.

Cocktails were provided by Cordial Organics in two variations as seen below. “Cordial Organics products are carefully crafted with an architecture of well-being and ecological sustainability.” A women run San Diego cannabis business  and a wonderful addition to the meal.


Dank & Stormy – pineapple/ginger infused rum, “Celebrate” bitters, topped with ginger beer.

Ginger Breeze – ginger and lemon juice cordial, “Celebrate” bitters, topped with sparkling water.


The Dinner

The first course : Amuse Bouche – Eggs

American Sturgeon Caviar, Local Uni, Smoked Hen Egg Sabayon, Migas

This rich and creamy dish was meant to be consumed in one bite, the texture was a new experience to be sure, overall delightful with a fishy finish.


The second course : Potato & Cauliflower

Potato Gnocchi, Za’atar Roasted Cauliflower, Cauliflower Puree, Brown Butter, Chili Oil, Crispy Shallot, infused with Sunset Sherbert flower & Green Valley Organics Olive Oil.

This was a definite favorite, The potato was perfection and the cauliflower was so flavorful!


The third course: Tea Bass

White Sea Bass Persillade, Black Lentils, Cipollini Onion, House Cured Ham, infused with GSC & Cannaoil Co. Olive Oil.

This was a new experience, I am typically not a seafood person so the inclusion of the cured ham, onion and the dominant flavor of the lentils made for an intriguing palette.


The fourth course : Duck

Duck Confit, Foie Gras Griddle Bread, Brussel Sprouts, Pickled Strawberry, infused with CannaOil Co. Olive Oil.

The duck was lovely, the griddle bread divine and the brussel sprouts and pickled strawberry really kicked the flavor up a notch, the combination was truly my favorite of the meat dishes.


The fifth course : Lamb

Lamb Loin, Roasted Salsify, Tart Cherry Mustard, Shiso, Spiced Breadcrumbs, Cardamom Jus, infused with Green Valley Organics oil, CannaCo Oil and blue dream flower.

The lamb was lightly browned and the Salsify was wonderfully tender.


Dessert

Passion Fruit

A passionfruit shortbread cookie bar drizzled with Defonce & Bhang chocolates and topped with Pura Vida Granola.

This was a wonderfully tart and tangy dish to wrap the meal with, as we were told as a cleansing of the palette. Every bite was packed with flavor and enjoyed to the very end!

 

We appreciate the host providing guest with CBD infused water throughout the meal to keep us hydrated and balanced.


Thank you to Club M for another great contribution to the cannabis community! Make sure and follow Club to stay informed on future events and sign up for your own subscription to the M Box today!!!

January 2017 | Club M box | Vol. XII THRIVE

January’s Club M brought us Volume 12, THRIVE, a collection of products to encourage a healthy & fulfilling engagement. Some of the wonderful brands included are Pura Vida Health, Synergy, Dirt Ninja Farms, Sweet ReLeaf and a special discount from VapeXhale!

I was inspired by this new theme and took the box out to our local running trail to get some shots of the Thrive box products.

As per usual, the intention letter was ideal. I enjoy the setting of the stage that Club M provides with each new box. THRIVE’s presentation was beautiful and achieved the expected Club M high standard. The products gave a wide array of experiences; A heady hybrid to get in an enjoyable elevated outdoor experience complete with on-the-go device, health conscious edibles to nourish and replace nutrients, a 5 hr energy infused shot to assist you in getting the most out of your day to a soothing topical for aching muscles post activities.

 

Thrive’s featured brands:

5-hour Synergy shot, Berry flavor

This item contains 50 mg of THC  (strain unidentified), 100mg of Caffeine in this 2 oz. bottle. Flavored with organic fruit juices my husband found palatable. I don’t typically do energy drinks and he is a bit of a connoisseur. He found the flavor pleasing and experience pleasant. A definite increase in energy with no negative effects.

Pura Vida Health Gramola & Mega Protein bar

Gramola First Love

With oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, cranberries, maple syrup, cinnamon and cannabis you really can’t lose. This 3 oz. bag contains 10 doses and a total 250 mg of THC, that averages 25 mg a dose. As a higher tolerance user this edible suits me fine. I like being able to just take a pinch or add it to my snack. Admittedly this is my top choice of Pura Vida health products.

Higher Power MEGA Protein bar, Sweet Berry

This mega bar’s ingredients of dates, oats, cranberries, mulberries, pea protein and maple syrup provides and sweet and savory edibles. The fact that it is packed with protein is an addition any canna-athlete or edible user can appreciate. 1.5 breaks into 4 doses of 50 mg THC each, a total of 200 mg THC per bar.

These products are great for our athletic friends and potent healthy edible consumers, for managing chronic pain issues or any condition our mid-higher tolerance patients may be treating. Like every Pura Vida Health product states, “Don’t sacrifice your body for a buzz.”

Dirt Ninja Farms Grapefruit OG (16.5%) & Twisty Blunt

Dirt Ninja Farms

An artisanal collective based in the North Bay who are deeply committed to beyond organic, sungrown, permaculture based farming. This fragrant Grapefruit OG was an ideal choice, it’s fairly heady effect coupled with the terpene profile provided a uplifting and creative experience. Great for daytime but does have a definite mild body high. (Indica dominant hybrid)

Twisty Blunt

Here we have a play on the glass blunt with the added fancy feature of a loading corkscrew. It is a fun device and convenient for on the go.

Sweet ReLeaf

This strictly topical by Sweet ReLeaf has been around for awhile, they have consistently provided patients with a pain and inflammation reducing cannabis product. From the website: “We infuse our body butter with cannabis trichomes, the most potent, broad spectrum extract. We collect the trichomes* from chilled cannabis. No chemical solvents necessary. Because sweet relief is what we’re after. We blend a number of whole, organic ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and our unique blend of essential oils to bring you a natural alternative to traditional medicines, that come with negative side effects.”

Bonus for Thrive, Club M Members

As if all that wasn’t enough this month’s box includes a $100 off discount for VapeXhale products for Club M members, visit the Club M shop and take advantage of this deal on a premium tabletop vaporizer. Another innovative cannabis product developed to help you health not hinder it.

 

Another Club M box comes to a close, we loved this month’s theme and feel Club M covered all the bases. Our experiences were well cultivated and the products available truly encouraged us to THRIVE, here is to many more #perfectmoments
Thanks Club M!

Happy Saturday, we have more exciting updates!!!

Exciting updates!!! Thank you to Keena Moffett!

 

Today I am thrilled to announce, ‘Cannabis Creations, Beyond the Brownie’ author, Keena Moffett, has agreed to allow Femme Nuri to feature a recipe from the CookBook every month on our website!

 

That means access to a fantastic NEW recipe each and every month! I found this exciting being I am not a professional chef but I do like to cobble together tasty, savory treats from time to time. Why not dabble in making my own edibles with my own dosing? As I am NOT a culinary expert I appreciate brilliant humans like Keena whom have the gift of making magic with food. Her approach to cooking makes me feel comfortable enough to attempt the recipes and the photos are not only amazing but helpful guides.

 

To be clear, I am not just bringing you some random woman who can put a recipe to paper, I am bringing you a woman who creates wonders giving delicious depth to all kinds of foods. An artist on more than one level, as you will discover as our year progresses. I find her dishes to be comfort foods and feel it would appeal to many women who treat themselves or a loved one with edibles.

 

I personally plan on adding a hard copy to my home library in addition to my digital download. The download is conveniently accessible on all my devices ($14.99 USD instant download) which is lovely but I do love my books so I really do need a physical copy ($34.99 USD).

 

Oh my gosh and we are just getting started!!!

Club M Box – NAUGHTY & NICE, Volume XI

Club M Box – NAUGHTY & NICE

Volume 11 of The Club M box gave us “Naughty & Nice”, the perfect theme for the December edition! Filled with delights this box was indeed a holiday treat!

Included this month: Edibles, Champagne Jelly by The Jelly Shamans and Nice Patties infused candy in Raspberry, Orange, and Peppermint. Cannabis products, Gold Seal 3 cone set with Tropikal, Heirloom OG, and Sunset Sherbert in addition to Granddaddy Purple wax from Deviant Dabs. Topical, Sex & Massage massage oil. Tools, a gold atomizer for the wax.

Let’s start with the Cannabis Products! I was so excited to try the Deviant Dabs wax, as most of you know I rarely indulge in concentrates. I make an exception for Deviant Dabs. Fortunately, Club M thought of everything and included this lovely gold atomizer as a means for me to medicate with the included concentrate! Bravo! One of my favorite things about Deviant Dabs medicine, it is potent but functioning for me.

Next were the Gold Seal pre-rolls. Three large cones in 3 different exotic indoor strains: Tropikal, Heirloom OG, and Sunset Sherbert. Each was fantastic in its own right! I have no complaints from this indica dominant group. All strains were heady with euphoric effects, great for social smokes. Really great flower quality, even burn.

Nice Patties, were nice, ah ha. But seriously, they were great, I tried the raspberry and gave Carl the orange, we still have the peppermint (I have plans for it, stay tuned). There is, as with most edibles, a slight undertaste, but nothing preventing this candy from being delicious. If you like edibles I recommend you try them out, 35 mg THC each.

I was intrigued by the inclusion of The Jelly Shamans Champagne Jelly, I had never heard such a thing before! I also love edible makers who are artisanal and believe in small custom batches. Those seem to be the best products, a lot of thought put in and behind them with that intention. This jelly was amazing, a sweet pinot noir flavor with a hint of lemon. We have yet to decide what to use it on but may not use it on anything since we keep just “tasting” it.

The topical Sex & Massage, an oil made by Kali Caps & Cremes. This sexual enhancement oil can also be used as a topical for pain management. I was interested in their use of rice bran oil in addition to the popular coconut oil. What I noticed was the rice bran oil seems to mute the cannabis smell but not take away from the coconut odor, which is subtle to be clear. The bottle is great, aesthetically pleasing and a nice looking pump bottle. Immediately out of the bottle it smelled a little “planty” but once absorbed there is only a slight coconut scent. Labeling seems to be compliant, all information is included. I found this topical to keep all its promises.

All in all another great compilation by Club M creating #perfectmoments. Thanks to Club M for creating this beautiful stash box and for all the luxury products you send your members, we look forward to seeing what 2017 brings! Cheers!

November 2016 Club M Box – FEAST

This month’s Club M box, FEAST, brings us a cornucopia of cannabis delights.

November 2016 FEAST

I am especially excited about the download for Keena Moffett’s eCookbook, Cannabis Creations: Beyond the Brownie. Included in this month’s box is Keena’s recipe for infused Chocolate Pecan Pie, sure to be a holiday hit. I will follow up with the results from my own experience using locally sourced cannabutter, look for more on the website in coming weeks.

True Humboldt, Candyland

The flower in this edition was Candyland from True Humboldt, “This award winning sativa dominant strain is an amazing collage of color alternating in hues of green with bright orange hairs all densely enshrouded in a forest of trichomes. This often potent strain offers a wide range of relief while maintaining a jovial and social functionality. This is a great strain for enhancing creativity.”, according to True Humboldt’s website. I found this to hold true, it did well on my pain management as well, not an anxiety causing sativa for me personally either. Also shown is the beautiful glass one-hitter included, well suited for a classy on-the-go piece.

Lord Jones Sea Salt Caramels – 80 mg THC

The Lord Jones sea salt caramels were delicious and mildly potent for my high tolerance at 20 mgs of THC each. I found the caramels to be consistent in dosing in my experience. The taste is as wonderful as any other non infused high end caramels on the market. If you are looking for a tasty infused caramel treat try them for yourself. They would make a great patient gift to be sure. (They come in a variety of doses)

Cannaoil Co olive oil

Another appropriate inclusion in this month’s FEAST themed box is CannaOil Co.’s extra virgin infused olive oil. I was really excited to find this inside because I have a recipe from The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook I’ve wanted to try but have been short, you guessed it, cannabis infused olive oil. The recipe even calls for the exact amount I have in the bottle!!!

The new Evoxe Deep pen

The new Evoxe pen, DEEP, with its blend of Indica cannabis oil, organically grown Lavender, Chamomile & Orange essential oils is a great go-to vaping option for me. The effects are relaxing but not sleepy, helping to manage anxiety in those stressful holiday situations. I enjoy the free flowing draw of this pen vs. it’s competitors.

120 mg thc Mega Boost by Jane’s Brew

And finally the all around infusing option, A package of Jane’s Brew powdered THC to put in anything you want, from beverages to foods this powder can be added to them all. With 12 servings of 10 mgs THC each (120 mg THC in packet) you can control your dose as needed. If you are looking for a restful night’s sleep for instance you may want to double your normal dose. Or, as a first-timer, you may want to halve the dose to see how it affects you on your inaugural run.

Thank you again to Club M box for another addition of delightful treats for members with, FEAST.

Femme Nuri September 2016 – Artisan of the Month

September Artisan of the Month: Dapper Labs Moon Rocks

This month’s artisan are skilled craftspersons in the art of cannabis concentrates, Andrew & Rick. I know Andrew to have a solid knowledge and distinguished taste for cannabis.

These moon rocks are top shelf cannabis flower buds, rolled in wax (cannabis concentrate) and then rolled in kief (resin trichomes of cannabis) making them very potent. The appeal to me with this type of product is the combination of strains at each stage. Hypothetically, let us say we are looking for something for our insomnia, let us say high THC flower is not really cutting the muster but we may not be ready to dive into cannabis concentrates just yet. Enter Dapper Labs moon rocks, a little goes a long way.

Insomnia & pain management are both getting great results from higher CBN strains, according to Steep Hill Labs, 5 mg of CBN is as effective as 10 mg dose of diazepam. Dapper Labs Indica & Hybrid moon rocks both contain higher CBN content vs. typical strains used in moon rocks in my experience. The Indica moon rocks have been great for insomnia and the Hybrid moon rocks have been wonderful for my deep bone pain during the day. For example the Hybrid moon rocks are Pineapple Express flower (25.89% THC, 0.04% CBD, 0.02% CBN) in Gorilla Glue Wax ( 70.88% THC, 0.15% CBD, 0.07% CBN) Sweet Island Skunk kief (47.21%, 0.08% CBD, 0.02% CBN) I have used this medicine for functioning daytime pain management, I don’t use a lot, no need to. Impressive.

Dapper Labs moon rocks can be found in the September Club M box, Explore, as well as the Club M website for purchase. I recommend these as an introduction to concentrates or if you are looking for something a little stronger to manage your symptoms. A little goes a long way so when trying a new product allow yourself space to safely test how a stronger medicine will affect you, keep calm, always try to have some pure CBD on hand to balance any over-medicated feelings. Due to the addition of concentrates the bud will burn slower and longer, something else to bear in mind. No fancy equipment is needed, you can use a pipe, water pipe or add it to a pre-roll.

Thank you, Dapper Labs and Congratulations!!!
