Tired of Smoking Cigarettes? Try Vaping.

Cigarette smoking is responsible for around 480,000 deaths every year in the United States. On average, cigarette smokers die 10 years younger than non-smokers. Smoking cigarettes used to be a normal and social thing to do in the 1900s, but, as we can see by the thousands of lung cancer deaths each year, it is detrimental to your health.

Why is Vaping Better Than Smoking Cigarettes?

E-cigarettes heat nicotine (extracted from tobacco), flavorings and other chemicals to create a water vapor that you inhale. Regular tobacco cigarettes contain 7,000 chemicals, many of which are toxic. While we don’t know exactly what the long-term effects are in e-cigarettes, there’s almost no doubt that they expose you to fewer toxic chemicals than traditional cigarettes. The flavored vegetable glycerin that is used to mix with the nicotine is not harmless, but is much less harmful than cigarette toxins. Vape products have created a market for nicotine lovers to enjoy a smoke without the deadly toxins. The health aspect of switching to vaping is definitely unarguably definite.

But What if I Don’t Like the Taste of Vape?

Another good thing about vaping is that you can buy almost any flavor you can think of. Companies have diversified their flavors to include even the most bizarre flavors, even jellybean or banana ice cream. Avid vape influencers have illustrated the uniqueness of vape flavors by growing the already popular vape culture into an almost $8 billion industry.

They continue to take market share form the tobacco companies as it has become increasingly apparent that vape products taste better and are healthier than tobacco products. The vape industry is growing into a large and powerful market.

Do Fireworks Scare Your Dogs? Don’t Worry, CBD Can Help.

The 4th of July is right around the corner, and your dogs can sense it. CBD (cannabidiol – the medical component of the cannabis plant) can help your dogs stay calm and relaxed during the 4th of July. 

What is CBD?

CBD is the medical component of the cannabis plant which is not-psychoactive, unlike THC. CBD is extracted through a CO2 extraction which is created into an oil. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. The flower contains trichomes, which are glands that have essential oils. Once the glands are separated from the plant, they can be formulated to find the ideal ratio of cannabinoids. The oil itself can be put into several different forms such as pills, edibles, or creams. 

How Can CBD Help Dogs?

Firstly, the main reason why dogs are afraid of fireworks is because their heightened sense of hearing enhanced and intensifies the sound of the fireworks. Dogs are much more sensitive to loud noises than humans are. An expert in the cannabis industry, Tim Shu, states that the cannabinoids interact with the receptors in the body and modulate things like pain, anxiety, and nausea. The reactions dogs have to fireworks will be greatly reduced. The cannabidiol attaches to the dog’s cell receptors, and has a calming and anti-anxiety effect on the dog. CBD calms the dog’s nervous system and allows them to process the sound of the fireworks with more ease. The best part about CBD is that it has absolutely no side effects. It is all derived naturally and approved by the US government. The only way dogs can get sick from CBD oil is if they are given too much (four to five drops are the recommended amount).
