Psychedelic Cannabinoids: How THC-O Acetate Is Made

The question of how a cannabinoid is “made” does not come up very often. That’s because it’s usually pretty simple, they are “made” by the cannabis plant. However, there are a few compounds that are byproducts of phytocannabinoids and some other type of chemical catalyst… meaning they aren’t 100% naturally derived.

Best Marijuana Strains for Multiple Sclerosis Patients

When reading about medical marijuana, you’ll often see multiple sclerosis described as one of the many serious diseases for which weed can be helpful.

But even people who are somewhat familiar with the heartbreakingly debilitating effects that MS can have may skip right past that section. After all, how many people have multiple sclerosis, anyway?
