Slowly but surely, weed is finding its way into a thousand and one truly awesome products to enjoy every day. It’s still pretty lousy that while you can buy pot seeds in the United Kingdom legally, everything else to do with weed is still completely against the law. But at the same time, it’s the perfect excuse for travelling to a slightly more liberal neck of the woods, in order to indulge in a world of goodies.
So whichever weed haven you plan to head to in the near future, here’s a quick rundown of just a few epic pot products you really just have to try:
Ok, so admittedly you’re not actually going to get high with this one, but the first shampoo to be legally created with small amounts of CBD and THC is said to work wonders anyway. Far from the realm of the hemp shampoo that’s been doing the rounds all over the place for decades, this is the real deal we’re talking about here – shampoo made with real weed!
If you regularly indulge in the kinds of activities that result in aching muscles, you’ll probably know how effective a few joint hits can be. These days though, there’s always the option of attacking what’s hurting you directly at the source. There are lots of brands right now throwing out various lotions and topical treatments that have been infused with CBD and THC. Cannabinoids are known to have various beneficial effects on the skin, while being much safer to play with than conventional painkillers.
Research into medical marijuana has brought with it a raft of new lip balms for both sexes. Medicated lip balms for outdoors types, indica-based lip balms for relaxing at night and even sativa-based balms for daytime use. Suffice to say, it’s a million miles from the chap-stick in your pocket and for all the right reasons.
Once again, the oral health products that are being cooked up with cannabis these days aren’t made specifically to get you high, but instead to simply be awesome in every way. Cannabis-infused mouthwash and toothpaste not only do a great job, but make full use of the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. So it’s basically everything your regular toothpaste is and a whole lot more besides.
Seeds stuck in your teeth? Corn kernels you can’t get rid of? It could be worse…now you’ve got yourself a perfect excuse to reach for a cannabis-infused toothpick! A company from Seattle has come up with these remarkable little beauties, which are designed to get you nicely buzzed after chewing and sucking on them for a while. Far more discreet than blazing up a public place and if you can pull it off, you might find you look pretty cool in the process. You might…but no guarantees on that one.
One of the best things about cannabis-infused honey is the way in which you’ll find literally a thousand different uses for it. And if you happen to grow your own cannabis, you’ll find it pretty easy to make your own cannabis-infused honey too. If you’re fond of your ‘wake n bake’ routine but not so keen on smoking in the early hours, this comes highly recommended.
For real? Apparently so – all thanks to some genius who decided that the time had come to take normal sunflower seeds and ‘medicate’ them with 100mg of THC in every bag. If discretion is your thing, this is about as good as it gets.
Chocolate Covered Blueberries
Last but not least, one of the biggest hits to emerge for a while now arrives in a rather unexpected form. A tidy little tin containing 22 decadent chocolate covered blueberries, which just so happen to have 5mg of THC baked into every one of them. Creative cannabis edibles that don’t just exist to get you high – they’re pretty damn delicious too!
