Do Edibles Work for Pain Management?

Cannabis Cheri

A viewer asks “do edibles work for pain management?” When you ask such a question, the quick answer is: it depends. You didn't give me quite enough information. What kind of pain? How severe?

Water curing cannabis: How and why to do it

The Cannigma

Drying typically occurs first, followed by bucking (to remove flower from the stem) and trimming (to remove the remaining leaves). The last step in the post-harvest process is curing. Curing cannabis is a technique that aims to remove and degrade harsh and unwanted substances from harvested buds, allowing the flavors to develop and the smoke or vapor to become smoother. 1 It is even believed that curing can increa
