What’s Better For Me: A Hybrid or a Single Strain?

What’s Better For Me: A Hybrid or A Single Strain?

The good news is that all types of cannibus: a single strain indica, a single strain sativa, and hybrids that grow as a mix of both can all provide you benefits. It’s helpful to think of each type of weed variant as if it had a personality:

  • Sativa: your energetic, extroverted friend who gives you that fun little mood-booster right when you need it
  • Indica: your chill, relaxed friend who’s down for whatever and gives relieved, pain-free vibes at all times
  • Hybrid: your versatile friend who can play both roles, expertly reading the room at the drop of the hat to blend in like the gifted chemical chameleon that you know them to be

The trick to seeing which of the three is most helpful and satisfying for you is to analyze the social situation where you’ll be consuming THC. If you’re going to a party, opt for sativa–it’s a crowd-pleaser. If you’re hanging inside or need some me-time, opt for indica. If you want to easily shift between both the extroverted and introverted sides of the coin, a hybrid may be your best bet.

Remember, each of these types affects everyone differently. You could be someone who reacts to indica the same way that someone else reacts to sativa. This is why experimenting safely over time with Strains Dispensary products is the best cannibus consumption practice that we can recommend. Additionally, keep in mind that hybrids aren’t always a 50/50 split between indica and sativa. Some of our hybrids may be sativa-heavier or lean more toward an indica majority blended strain.

What Are The Long-Term Effects of THC Gummies For Sleep?

What Are The Long-Term Effects of THC Gummies For Sleep?

The answer depends largely on how you use THC gummies long-term. When used in moderation, adult consumers of cannabis often experience pleasant results from intermittent edibles at bedtime. These results included falling asleep faster and getting more sleep in general. Effects have been recorded as especially positive in the longer term among people who have chronic pain or health disorders, specific mental health issues, or diagnosed sleep disorders. 

 

We can’t wait for you to try our indica-infused berry blaze gummies, our bedtime-friendly blackberry dream sleep gummies, the super popular midnight cereal-flavored gummies, and our Huxleys passionfruit gummies for couples hitting the hay together!

Why Strains Dispensary Near Riverside Only Serves Adults 

Studies do show that habitual use of edibles in teens can cause them to get more or less sleep than is advised by healthcare professionals.

Other negative side effects in teenagers who reported regularly eating edibles at night included thrown-off sleep cycles, greater chances of developing insomnia, and impaired sleep quality.

This is one of the many reasons why only serving cannabis consumers who are 21 or older is a non-negotiable for Strains Dispensary. We take the health and wellness of the greater Perris area seriously and feel a deep sense of responsibility for providing safe THC products to customers who are old enough to consume them.

Strains Dispensary’s Weed Budgeting Tips

We get it. Weed is the best, but the bills keep coming. While we love selling the best and brightest of bud products to Perris customers, we respect everyone’s budgetary boundaries. That’s why we’ve thrown together some of the most helpful tips for THC consumers.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Take advantage of our bud-filled budget-friendly dispensary deals!
  • Tell our budtenders about your favorite type of weed products, and we’ll recommend the most affordable options that check your boxes.
  • Try to save your weed or weed products for later, this includes collecting kief, holding onto stems, and carefully storing the last half of your daily joint!
  • Invest in one-hitters or other smoking devices that allow you to take a couple of puffs, and save the rest of the pack for later!
  • Practice discipline and exercise the self-control necessary to stay within your budget and portion your weed servings adequately.

The Next Best Thing

We have a wide selection of edibles, THC beverages, flower, wax, and more! We can recommend the most cost-effective products to take your dollar that much further. 

Lovin’ On Leftovers

There’s nothing wrong with saving the last half of a blunt, storing away a joint, or nibbling away at an edible over time. Remember, weed is best when savored–so don’t rush. When you begin to enjoy the plant’s effects, taper yourself off and save the rest for later!

One Hit Wonders

We have tons of smoking gear to choose from. Let our budtenders know if you’re looking for a one-hitter with flare, a balling-on-a-budget bong, or a beautiful bowl that will help you ration your weed servings. 

Budget-Friendly Boundaries 

Some people prefer to limit their intake to the weekends or practice nocturnal weed consumption. However you establish your limits with weed is up to you, but strive to create healthy, sustainable boundaries with the plant to make sure you’re not overconsuming at your wallet’s expense.

Productive Activities to Do While Stoned & Stuck At Home

Our Top 5 Stoner Activities

Have you been stoned and stuck at home lately, pondering the ideal way to fill the time? We put together a list of wholesome activities for you to consider while stoned, bored, and stuck at home.

1. Yoga, Meditate, or Workout

It’s no secret that cannabis pairs well with activities of the mind and body; after all, cannabis is a holistic medicine that has been consumed by ancient societies to deepen spiritual practices for thousands of years.

In ancient India, Hindu rishis consumed cannabis to deepen their yogic meditative practices. We now have modern yogis carrying on this tradition by consuming cannabis before meditation or yoga.

We also have long-distance runners and gym rats alike that frequent Strains Dispensary Perris because they pair a little cannabis with their daily workout due to the performance lift that it can provide. If you are one of these people, there is no reason you can’t have some cannabis and workout along with your favorite app or YouTube video.

2. Clean or Redesign

The human mind, unfortunately, is prone to get stuck in a rut on default mode. Rest assured that being stoned and stuck at home is an opportunity to look around and ask yourself, “Does this space best serve me?” When we give ourselves a little time and space to answer this question honestly, we find that some improvements can be made to the space surrounding us – time to consider the ideal furniture arrangement. Rearranging your furniture to suit your comfort, and while you’re at it, maybe you’ll rethink your interior design altogether. There are no rules that say what you have in your home is permanent.

Why you are redecorating, why not summon your inner deep-cleaner and give your apartment or home a thorough cleaning. You’ll feel much better after cleaning everything.

Cleaning and redesigning your surroundings is a proven way of feeling refreshed and accomplished within while preventing autopilot from defining your space.

3. Teach Your Dog a New Trick

Is there really anything cooler than a dog that can do tricks? If you’re stuck at home stoned and looking for something to do with your doggo, why not teach him/her a new trick? With a little Pavlov know-how and tasty treats, anyone can teach their pup how to shake hands like a gentleman, rollover, or sit still.

4. Learn a New Skill

Maybe you lack the dog to teach something, and you’ve been considering a new hobby or skill. When stoned, bored, and stuck at home, it is an excellent opportunity to learn a new skill of your own.

Ever wanted to learn a guitar or become a painter or learn to cook? It’s never too late! A new hobby will be there for you with positivity and health. Being stoned and stuck at home is really an invitation to fill the void with something new that you’ve been thinking about but never started.

5. Have a Self-Care Day

Isn’t cannabis, after all, about holistic self-care? Why not double down on your self-care strategy by planning a day just for you? Maybe invite the spouse or significant other, perhaps not, because this self-care day is about what’s best for you. Awesome self-care day activities include anything from taking a bath, giving yourself a facial, doing your nails, stretching, or even taking a nap! Different strains can help with different situations, so make sure you get the right one!

How to Make Cannabis Cooking Oil and Butter

Cannabis Butter

Making Your Own Cannabis Cooking Oil and Butter

Whether it is a slow day or you are stuck out home, cooking with cannabis is a great way to spend some of your time. If you do not have cannabutter or oil already, don’t worry, if you have some flower you can make your own!

 

Cannabis Cooking Oil

 

Cannabis cooking oil is easy to make and can be used in any recipe of your choice. All you need is flower and any high-fat oil of your choice. If you are looking for an oil with a mild flavor, vegetable and canola oil are going to be great options. They are also very versatile and work with most recipes calling for oil.

MATERIALS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Finely grind your cannabis flower.
  2. Combine oil and cannabis in a 1:1 ratio (Example: 1 cup of ground cannabis to 1 cup of oil) in a saucepan, double boiler, or slower cooker.
  3. Let the mixture simmer at low heat for about 3 hours in the saucepan, 6-8 hours in the double boiler, or 4-6 hours in the slow cooker. (Yes, your home will smell amazing!)
  4. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth, coffee filter, or fine-mesh strainer, do not squeeze as it may cause the leftover flower to fall into your oil.
  5. Oil should be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container, preferably glass, for the next 2-3 months.

Canna-Butter

Decarboxylate the cannabis

First, you’ll need to decarboxylate your flower. It sounds difficult, but all it means exposing it to a gentle heat to transform the allowing the THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids to activate. It allows the butter to easily bind to your week for ultimate infusion.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 225°F.
  2. Grind your cannabis as finely as you can.
  3. Evenly spread your flower on sheet pan or baking dish.
  4. Place in the oven for 45 minutes, gently mixing it every 10 minutes to prevent burning.

On to making butter

Butter to Cannabis Ratio: We recommend using 1 stick of butter for every 0.25 ounces (7.09 g) of marijuana. So for an ounce of marijuana, you should use 4 sticks of butter.

MATERIALS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fill your saucepan with 2 inches of water, bring it to a boil and add your butter.
  2. After the butter has melted, grind your flower and add it. Once the cannabis is added, turn down the heat to barely a simmer. Cook for three hours, steering the mixture occasionally.
  3. Set up your heatproof bowl to hold the finished product. Carefully, strain the mixture into the bowl, through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer.
  4. Let the mixture cool at room temperature for about one hour. Then, place it in the fridge until the butter has solidified and separated from the water.
  5. Remove from the fridge and run a knife or spatula around the edge of the bowl, lifting the butter off the water.
  6. Place the bowl upside down on a piece of parchment paper and scrape off any of the plant matter and milk solids.
  7. Your canna-butter is ready to use! Store it in the refrigerator or freezer in a sealed container.
