Happy New Year & Welcome 2018!

Winter of Wonder continues in January 2018 with Can-I-Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis is legal in California as of January 1st, but was does that mean? In our last month of public content we will do our best to help provide helpful information to answer your queries into legal cannabis.

With the launch of official Femme Nuri membership and Sponsorship this year will be more focused on exclusive content for member’s but we will continue to share relevant information on all our current platforms.

Don’t forget to register for our event this month! Can-I-Cannabis? in North County San Diego

Launching our Summer 2017 campaign, Messaging with Merchandise

Check out our Femme Nuri 2017 Summer of Truth campaign!


These campaigns over the summer months will focus on some “truths” about cannabis, easily referenced by a simple internet search. The idea being knowledge is power, if someone reads the shirt and looks it up, we spread the message. If someone chooses to engage based on curiosity, we spread the message. Bit by bit, more and more will become common knowledge.

In addition to being brightly colored (inspired by the original Endless Summer movie posters) and beautifully simple, each month at least 25% of all storefront merchandise proceeds will go directly to charity, for the month of June 25% of all storefront merchandise proceeds will go to the ACLU.

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!

Cannabis – Getting Started a.1

Cannabis 101 a.1

Let’s get down to it,  please feel free to leave a comment!

 

 

 

 

Are you prepared personally?

I mention it because many patients who have found such relief or a higher quality of living from cannabis are surprised at the negative reaction they receive from family and friends. The Harsh judgment,  comparisons to drug users/abusers, ridiculed and even being disowned by family. The negative stigma attached to cannabis is REAL and in the current age of no filter, anything goes, the intensity of criticism can be fierce, prepare yourself. I personally try not engage in moral debate but do educate when I am faced with fear out of ignorance or want of knowing.

 

Will you be drug tested?

Make sure you understand the policies on drug testing at your workplace. Nothing is foolproof if your patient status endangers your job/employment you must always be prepared for the consequences. Having a good comprehension of your company’s drug use policies is an advantage, it can help you decide how to manage your patient status in the best interest of all parties. You may have an employer that requires drug testing but also believes cannabis is medicine, knowledge is power.

 

Educate yourself on local medical cannabis law and know your rights as a patient.

This is a great reference resource I have found to summarize your rights in California:

https://unitedpatientsgroup.com/resources/legal-rights-for-medical-marijuana

 

I recommend you acquire a state patient I.D. card to compliment your Dr.’s recommendation for added security and protection, you can find out how to get yours here:

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/MMP/Pages/default.aspx

Cannabis laws are still in development so I highly recommend the next step.

Canopy San Diego – An Interview with Lincoln Fish

 

canopy-page

Today we are fortunate enough to get word from Mr. Lincoln Fish, one of our most respected local cannabis industry leaders, speaking about the Inaugural Cohort of Canopy San Diego this Fall.

linc

Thank you Mr. Fish for your time today. I would like to start with you giving readers a quick synopsis of what is Canopy?

Lincoln Fish:   

Canopy is an Accelerator. In terms of business incubation, there are accelerators and there are incubators. Typically, an incubator will start from the idea stage, whereas accelerators are taking in small companies that already have some structure and a fairly defined idea of where they are going.  Accelerators will typically give very select businesses some startup money, office space, mentorship in a wide range of disciplines (marketing, accounting, legal, etc.) and access to an investor base.  Canopy San Diego is a traditional accelerator in that regard…the thing that makes us unique is our dedication to the cannabis space. We are looking to work with companies that offer ancillary products and services to the industry.  Currently, we are not working with those that directly touch the plant.

 

Fascinating, seeing this level of business coming to the cannabis industry here in San Diego is all very exciting. Speaking of locale, how is it San Diego came to be selected to host Canopy say versus Los Angeles with a seemingly larger cannabis market?

Lincoln Fish:

That’s a tribute to Eric Gomez, our CEO, and Jack Scatizzi, our Managing Director. They had the foresight to realize that San Diego would be the ideal hub for a cannabis accelerator. Los Angeles is obviously a larger market, but we are close enough to attract those players, and San Diego is known for its innovative firms, especially in the biotech and engineering spaces.  There is an enormous talent pool and a strong investor base here….and both of those groups are looking for unique, fast-moving companies to support and help thrive.

 

That makes sense, San Diego is often under-rated outside our tourism plugs. I know I was glad to see that Canopy saw value in our local industry to be sure. What can we expect to see from Canopy in the coming months?

Lincoln Fish:   

You’re right about that. We are never given enough credit as a serious player, but it’s actually one of truly ideal cities to foster entrepreneurship. We have a highly educated population, and many key business professionals want to push harder to raise San Diego’s profile in that regard.  This is exactly where Canopy San Diego fits in.  We are letting everyone know that we are here and already creating value, for the companies we support, for the cannabis industry, and for the San Diego business community. Everyone knows that cannabis is the biggest new industry since the dot com world exploded. You will see Canopy San Diego roll out some firms that are set to be leaders in various facets of this industry.

 

My next question is about our local cannabis community, does Canopy have any plans for outreach or involvement outside of business?

Lincoln Fish:

To put it simply, wherever cannabis is being supported legally and positively, Canopy wants to be there. Whether that means helping with charitable groups that are helping deal with medical issues, or getting involved politically, Canopy San Diego will be a part of it.

 

That sounds wonderful. I am grateful for your time today Mr. Fish, I would like to thank you and Canopy San Diego for your professionalism and the opportunity provided to our local entrepreneurs. We wish you all continued success and look forward to seeing new growth and development in our industry and community. Thank you.

Stay tuned for more information on Canopy San Diego’s 2016 Fall Cohort…

 

Femme Nuri September 2016 – Artisan of the Month

dapper-labs-web-shot

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!!!
