Pain management during the winter season:
This season can be rough on the aches and pains already living in our muscles and joints are they exacerbate and amplify our afflictions as our bodies tense up and work hard to hold in heat.
We have a laundry list of products that can fall under this category as pain management is our main gig but the above are major players in the pain management game.

This topical was specifically formulated to be deep penetrating and fast acting by combining the potent synergy of cannabis, comfrey and nettle plant medicine so that you feel relief immediately.

CBD is known to relieve pain and inflammation without the high you experience from THC. It’s widely used as an anti-spasmodic which means it may alleviate spasms and even seizures. Our CBD Tinctures can be used for arthritis, chronic pain, headaches and migraines. We offer a few strengths and varieties depending on your tolerance and needs.
Seasonal depression or the winter blues:
These short days, lack of sunshine and the post-holiday crash can be extremely intense for those battling the blues, depression or anxiety. Very little Vitamin D, endless dark nights and feeling overwhelmed or sad from the holidays can have most of us battling our feels, but with the right supplements you can help lift yourself up through the winter months.
Lack of light in your life? Try our Sativa Tincture aka sunshine in a bottle. This THC Tincture is made with Blue Dream Kief and is described by fans as uplifting, energizing and creatively inspiring. Micro-dosing throughout your day may help time go faster and make the day a lot more enjoyable!
We offer a variety of CBD Tinctures from our Full Plant Spectrum 360mg made with pure CBD oil – to 1500mg Terpene-infused Tincture made with pure CBD oil plus CBD Isolate for extra strength. CBD is known to alleviate anxiety and help with depression. It can really smooth out your day and take the edge off – allowing you to enjoy other people’s company more and get through the day with ease. For those suffering from insomnia, which doesn’t help the seasonal blahs, CBD can be an extremely powerful tool in your unwinding-at-night tool kit.
We offer 3 different CBD:THC Fusion Tinctures that all come with their own set of benefits, but for this particular RX we recommend our 10:1 Fusion Tincture (10 parts CBD to 1 part THC). With this tincture, you feel minimal intoxicating affects from the THC but get a powerful dose of the CBD. CBD and THC are the power couple of cannabis therapeutics; they work best together by amplifying each other’s curative properties. This means you can get the benefits of both cannabinoids while feeling very little of the high associated with THC. Our 10:1 Fusion Tincture has been proven to help with anxiety and depression – alleviating your mood whether it’s to help you get through your day or helping you relax and get to sleep at night.
