Which Cannabis Strain do you prefer?

lifestyleNice Guys DeliveryComment

Do you prefer Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid cannabis flower? Does it matter to you?

And what feeling are you seeking when consuming?

Cannabis is an extremely unique plant. No two people have the same experience, and even if they could biologically-speaking, they still couldn’t, because each cannabis strain and each harvest is different. Cannabis is alive and constantly evolving.

At Nice Guys, we recommend tracking your experience. It means you should take ownership of your cannabis use by becoming interested in what you’re consuming and tracking how it makes you feel (actually write it down).

Become curious. Ask your licensed cannabis provider questions and reach out on social media to start a dialog with others. Prohibition will end when more of us begin to open up and talk about all the ways cannabis helps our lives.

Why Shop For Cannabis Online??📍Marin County Cannabis Delivery

educationNice Guys DeliveryComment
whyshoponline-1.png

Pros:

Have you ever considered purchasing cannabis online rather than making the trip to a dispensary? Below is a list of pros and cons to help guide your decision the next time you’re looking to purchase products. Before we get started, I recommend getting to know the state and local laws regarding cannabis near you. In California, delivery services can deliver anywhere in the state with out abiding by local laws.

 

Convenience:

Time is one resource most of us seem to never have enough of, by purchasing products online you gain back some of those precious moments. Nice Guys Delivery offers speedy delivery within 45-60 minutes from the time you place an order, but if you need to schedule the delivery for a later time in the day or week that’s also an option. Buying online saves you time traveling to the store, standing in busy lines, and offers a painless way to refill products when they’re running low.  

[We now offer same day deliveries into select Napa & Sonoma County locations when you order by 2 PM]

 

Accessibility:

Ordering online offers individuals with illness an easier way to obtain medicine. It gives consumers more access to products than if there only option is to purchase from the storefront down the road. You have the ability to shop around until you find exactly what you’re looking for.

 

Predictable care in a relaxed setting:

It’s hard to find a more comfortable setting than your own home. Nice Guys Delivery has a dedicated call center with specialized customer service people ready to assist you with whatever you need. When you visit a storefront you often interact with a different budtender each time, making it difficult to build rapport. You don’t have that problem when ordering online because there is a specific team dedicated to working with you. In the digital age, ordering online actually allows for a more personalized experience.

 

Education:

Looking at products online allows you to research information while you are shopping. Let’s say that you come across a new strain you’ve never heard of. You can search the internet using site’s like Leafly to help gain more information before deciding to purchase something. It’s also important to know who you’re buying from. Ordering online gives you the opportunity to read about the company before doing business.

 

Sales and Promotions:

Shopping online allows you to locate the specific products you are looking for and often times gives you access to online deals and promotions through email newsletters and campaigns. By engaging on social media you’re able to connect with brands on a more intimate level.

 

Cons:

One perceived downfall when ordering online is not being able to see the products in person. Since all tinctures, topicals, and edibles must remain in their packaging anyway, the buying experience is basically the same online as it is in-store. This problem is also diminished over time as you build a relationship with the delivery service and are able to trust their word and reputation. You can read reviews and see what other people think about the products and service you’re looking for, before making any decisions.

The Original Story of 420: Meet the Waldo's!!!

lifestyleSquare Studio DevComment

Meet the 420 Waldo’s ✌️

Originators of 420 slang 💨

“The best part of 420 is it happens twice a day!” - The Waldo’s

420 is not code among police officers for marijuana smoking in progress. There are not 420 chemical compounds found in cannabis (there are more than 500). 420 is not the anniversary of Bob Marley’s death and the truth regarding how 420 became a symbol in culture is more adventurous than you’d imagine.

The slang didn’t evolve from a group of couch-lock stoners. Instead it was formed by a group of young adventurous teens who liked to have fun and explore after school.

When I first began my ascent into cannabis culture, I associated 420 slang with negative stereotypes surrounding cannabis. In my mind stoners were lazy, unintelligent, lacking drive, and mostly used by individuals seeking to escape “reality.” My view was narrow. As I began using the plant more frequently, I realized I preferred smoking weed and then doing something active. I was surprised the plant left me more adventurous than it did stoned.

The Waldo’s (nicknamed Waldo's because they used to hang out together by a wall near their school) are the originators of 420 slang and what makes their story more fascinating is how it started in our local community (San Rafael). They recently spoke on a panel at Sweetwater Music Hall after a screening of “Weed the People,” which was the cannabis film Nice Guys Delivery sponsored during the Mill Valley Film Festival.

For the Waldo’s in 1971, 4:20 was the time of day when the 5 of them met at the Louis Pasteur statue. Located outside of San Rafael High School they’d get high and begin a clandestine adventure to find "weed" with a treasure map! They played sports and had other after school activities, so they had to wait until 4:20 to begin. Their primary reason for meeting was because they received a map from a friend whose brother was in the U.S. Coast Guard. The map was supposed to lead them to a patch of cannabis growing somewhere in the Point Reyes Peninsula but there was fear that if someone else found it, it would be destroyed, so the boys went hunting!

They began by saying “420 Louie” to remind one another of their after-school adventures, quickly realizing they could drop the “Louie” and continue talking about cannabis without anyone other than themselves knowing what it was they were discussing. The boys continued using 420 to talk about cannabis but it wasn’t until years later when they realized it had become a cultural symbol for smoking weed. When the guys were asked how it spread across the world, they mentioned their relationship with the Grateful Dead as probably being the biggest influence, but even they weren't sure. 

Meeting them after the event helped show their down to earth nature. They live and work in Marin and Sonoma counties. One of them is parenting two girls who attend the same high school they went to in 1971, which is pretty neat. But overall we enjoyed the event because it helped show a truer picture of cannabis-users, which isn’t the kind of stoners society paints cannabis smokers out to be!

Weed the People - A Powerful Cannabis Film| MVFF41 Sponsors

Weed The People

A Healing Revolution Is Growing

Last weekend we hosted a screening at the 41st Annual Mill Valley Film Festival. The MVFF has been a part of our community since 1977, growing into an internationally acclaimed cinema event throughout the decades. Our co-founder Monica Gray grew up in Mill Valley and attended the festival throughout the years, so it brought her a lot of joy being able to give back to the community that’s given her much. Once we heard about the film “Weed the People,” we knew it was something we wanted to support.

It’s a bold look into the medicinal ways cannabis is able to help individuals and shows how challenging it can be to acquire proper medication under the current blanket created by prohibition. Director Abby Epstein and Producer Ricki Lake created a heart wrenching documentary film following five children with cancer and their parents as they desperately try to move past marijuana’s reputation as a recreational joyride and embrace it’s centuries-old history as an effective medicine – one that not only offsets the negative side effects of chemotherapy but may hold the key to healing.”

We had the opportunity to see the film a couple of times, and on both occasions, we were moved to tears.  Watching children and their parents experience the devastating journey of cancer is a heart wrenching subject. It follows five children and their parents as they fight to use cannabis as either the sole medicine or in conjunction with Chemo. It provides insight into the difficulty behind each parent’s decision and also reveals how challenging it can be to find safe, reliable sources of medicine in a largely unregulated market.

We meet Mara Gordon, an advocate and guide for people using CBD and THC to treat cancer. She works diligently to gather data, guide families and make different formulas to treat individuals in need. It's a powerful statement about the importance of research, availability and affordability of cannabis and it's cannabinoids.  The film gives us a window into how cannabis works on cancer vs traditional treatments and how it can be used to ease symptoms along the way.

“Weed the People,” is an instant classic, a pioneering film with tremendous upside educational potential.  We’d like to thank director Abby Epstein and producer Ricki Lake for making a film that directly reflects how incredible the plant really is. Our hope for Ricki, Abby, and the film is to see it spread across the nation falling on receptive hearts and open minds. These are important messages to spread! By changing perception and rescheduling cannabis research would be legal, and it could lead to important medical discoveries, currently unavailable to researchers and individuals suffering from terminal diseases.

The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard Given Regarding Cannabis As Medicine!

educationSquare Studio DevComment

The Worst Advice

We’ve ever heard given regarding cannabis as medicine!

What’s the worst advice we’ve heard given regarding cannabis as a medicine? That’s tough due to the excessive amount of misinformation floating around as a condition of the war on drugs. We’ve heard plenty of incorrect advice but today we’re focusing on one, which involves Rick Simpson Oil and the advice given to a first-time cannabis-user who was looking to treat pain and didn’t want any of the psychoactive effects associated with marijuana. 

Rick Simpson Oil is named after a Canadian cannabis activist who first used extracted oil from cannabis to cure his own skin cancer. RSO is a whole plant extract that contains most of the components found in the plant and contains high levels of THC. RSO is often used by cancer patients needing large doses of THC and it is usually very psychoactive.

We know of a guy who was struggling with pain and anxiety and was looking to try something different. Raised in the Midwest he’d only been around cannabis a few times and never tried it for himself. For much of his life he associated “pot users” with deadbeats because that’s how he was raised, but when traditional medicine wasn’t cutting it any longer he wanted to try something different. He was a mess struggling with pain, anxiety, and a mild form of depression causing him to self-medicate with alcohol.

He asked a family member who was a medical marijuana patient if there was anything he could use to treat his symptoms but stressed the fact that he didn’t want to “get high.” His sister told him about RSO and said it would be a great place to start. Unfortunately, his sister never tried RSO for herself and was simply relaying information she heard from someone else, just like the game “telephone,” truth tends to get lost as it passes from one mouth to another.

The gentleman got his Med card and acquired the RSO. Later that night he put a tiny drop under his tongue and that’s the last time he used it. He was awake most of the night, lying on the floor higher than a kite. He was very anxious, and he noticed his heart beating faster, he went into full blown panic mode and convinced himself he was having a heart attack.

This is an issue because he received a heavy dose of the psychoactive high he was trying to avoid. A little goes a long way with RSO. Instead of relieving his issues the RSO exacerbated the situation and it became more damaging than beneficial.

What would’ve been a better option?

If he would have asked us first, we would have strongly urged against using the RSO because of its high potency. Instead, we would’ve suggested starting with a high-CBD product like the Care by Design 18:1 or 8:1 tincture ratio. This is the preferred starting place for someone new to cannabis because it doesn’t cause you to feel the psychoactive high due to it being a more concentrated CBD product. CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid proven to help reduce anxiety, inflammation, and even level out the psychoactive effects felt by THC.

The reason we suggest a ratio including a small portion of THC over a product based 100% in CBD is because it’s shown that THC needs to be present in order to reduce the feeling of pain in the body. THC is the cannabinoid best used for treating pain and the pain-relieving effects can be felt even in small doses like they are in the 18:1 and 8:1 ratio, without causing the head high. This is great news for anyone seeking alternative forms of treatment, who may fear using cannabis because of the psychoactive effects it produces. The next time you have a cannabis-based question we recommend consulting a professional in the industry.

Cannabis Prohibition in the United States - part 2

educationSquare Studio DevComment

Before prohibition in America

Prior to prohibition, cannabis was used medically throughout the United States and was originally listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia in 1850 as a cure for many ailments. It wasn’t until 1941 when the drug was removed from the text. During the pre-prohibition era not as many people in the U.S knew of the plant’s psychoactive effects. In fact, it was mostly distributed in the form of liquid tinctures and sold in pharmacies across the country. Pharmaceutical companies Eli Lilly and Parke-Davis even collaborated on the development of a strain called: Cannabis Americana which was created to help improve the inefficient export from India.

Cannabis prohibition began in the early 1900’s when individual states-imposed laws and ordinances making it more difficult to obtain and expensive to purchase. It’s argued that prohibition was largely a result of the influx of Mexican immigrants who migrated to the United States carrying marijuana with them during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-11.

The head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, Harry Anslinger, began demonizing the plant by associating racial stereotypes, violent crimes, dangerous sexual activity, and insanity with cannabis-users. He said things like, “you could easily get stoned and go out and kill a person, and it would all be over before you realized you had left your room, because marijuana turns man into a wild beast.Leading people to fear the plant out of false information.

Anslinger had help from the media as newspapers published by William Randolph Hearst used tactics such as yellow journalism to create more fear among American people. It’s been stated Hearst had “financial interests in lumber and paper industries, motivating him to eliminate competition from hemp,” as hemp was the main source of paper for much of history.

It’s also interesting to note the Great Depression and the ending of Alcohol prohibition and how they both played a role in the formation of cannabis prohibition. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics was founded in 1930 shortly after the Great Depression began, which left Anslinger worried about funding for his newly created agency. Prior to this era Anslinger had little interest in criminalizing cannabis as he thought it was more of a distraction, rather than something truly harmful that needed to be stopped. When alcohol prohibition was repealed in 1933 there was an increased amount of people trying the plant and marijuana soon became the target of government control with the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. By criminalizing cannabis Anslinger was able to increase funding for the newly created government agency, marginalize immigrants, and virtually end cannabis research for decades to come.

Below is a timeline of relevant dates in U.S. cannabis history:

  • 1937: The Marijuana Tax Act – effectively banned any further use of the drug as a medicine and outlawed cannabis as a dangerous narcotic
  • 1970: The Controlled Substances Act – prohibited cannabis for any use at the Federal level
  • 1973: Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis, reducing the penalty up to 1 oz to a $100 fine
  • 1996: Proposition 215 made California the 1st state to legalize medical cannabis
  • 2012: Colorado and Washington became the 1st two states to legalize the recreational use of cannabis
  • 2018: Recreational use takes effect in California

Today's Cannabis movement and where its headed

The momentum cannabis is gaining in 2018 is giving us as a company excitement for a brighter future. Our vision of the future is one where stigma is a thing of the past and people can access and afford it from wherever they live. Federally cannabis is still considered a “schedule 1” drug, but as a country there are now 30 states with some form of legalization, which even includes the Republican state of Oklahoma. Nine states including the District of Columbia have decriminalized the drug and both Michigan and Utah have different forms of legalization included on their November ballots. Canada also recently legalized marijuana as a nation so there is a lot of forward momentum both Politically and Economically, but it’s up to us to keep it going.

We have the ability as a community to impact real change, but it requires each of us to show support in whatever way possible. The best way to show support and make the greatest difference is through showing up at community events and voicing your opinion, but if that’s not your style we’d also invite you to join our efforts on social media where we’re promoting an active and adventurous way to explore cannabis, as a way to end stigma and share educational information.

A Global View of Medical Cannabis Use Throughout History - Part 1

educationSquare Studio DevComment

The use of cannabis has been with us for centuries, thought to have originated in the steppes of Central Asia nearly 12,000 years ago, people have been using it for a very long time. In this article we’re going around the globe highlighting the medical uses of one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world. In Neolithic times cannabis was a common agricultural crop used for its high-protein seeds, oils, and fibers to make ropes, enrich diets, and make clothing for ancient societies.

Global use of medical cannabis throughout history

  • Cannabis as a medicine first arrived on the scene around 2737 B.C. when the mystic Chinese Emperor, Shen Neng, began prescribing cannabis tea to treat gout, malaria, beriberi, rheumatism, and poor memory.
  • Around 200 A.D., the first pharmacopeia of the East, known as the “Pent ts’ao,” was created based on much of Shen Neng’s teachings, and contained various uses of cannabis to treat many ailments which also included 365 different medicines derived from plants, animals, and minerals.
  • The Ancient Chinese founder of surgery, Hua T’o, used cannabis mixed with alcohol as an anesthetic during surgeries.
  • In Ancient Rome, Pliny the Elder mentioned cannabis as a painkilling analgesic.
  • Romans were also aware of the plants ability to alleviate labor pains, premenstrual symptoms, and menstrual cramps.
  • In India, Hindus used cannabis to relieve stress and anxiety.
  • The Indian healer, Sushruta, is known for prescribing cannabis for fevers and inflammation of the mucous membrane; while other Indian healers used it to treat coughs and asthma.  
  • Pedanius Dioscorides, a physician in Nero’s Army recommended a juice made out of the seeds of cannabis to aid in earaches.
  • Galen, the Ancient Greek doctor used the drug to treat pain and flatulence.
  • Women in Cambodia and Vietnam ingest a cannabis tea to alleviate postpartum distress, still used today.
  • In Africa, “Dagga,” which is their name for cannabis, varied medically from tribe to tribe.  The Sotho tribe used it during childbirth, whereas residents from Rhodesia used it to treat anthrax, dysentery, and malaria. Some tribes even used it to treat snakebites.
  • In Europe, French doctor Francois Rabelais, wrote a book describing how cannabis could ease the pain of gout, cure horses of colic, and treat burns.
  • Portuguese physician Garcia Da Orta described the plants ability to stimulate appetite.
  • Thanks to the research done by Irish physician William O’Shaughnessy in the 1830’s, both England and the Americas gained interest in the medical potential of the plant.
  • In 1850 the U.S pharmacopeia listed cannabis as a cure for many ailments, and until prohibition began in the 1900’s cannabis tinctures could be found in pharmacies and medicine cabinets all across the country.
  • In the 1950’s a study was done in Czechoslovakia, which confirmed cannabis’s antibiotic and analgesic effects.

Understanding history to end cannabis stigma

You may wonder why one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world is demonized in today’s society, but once you see how entangled cannabis is to religion and commerce it’s easy to see how prohibition was largely influenced by politics of control, rather than from scientific or rational assessments of the drug’s use and effects.  We believe it’s important to know the history because the stigma that cannabis-users are “pot-heads,” lazy, and unintelligent has demonized the plant long enough. The result has limited medical research and turned good people into criminals. Part two of this blog series will dive deeper into prohibition and the different ways cannabis has been misrepresented in the past.

How to successfully come out of the "cannabis closet?" With 7 conversational insights

lifestyleSquare Studio Dev

PC: Pixabay

The landscape of cannabis is rapidly changing, allowing stigmas of old to change tide and shift out of consciousness. But with the changes come awkward conversations and challenging experiences, which is what occurred when I told my mom I accepted a job in the cannabis industry. See how my decision to work in a highly controversial industry changed the relationship with my mom and get my thoughts on the best ways to tell someone you love about your cannabis use.

Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, raised with conservative Christian values didn’t equate to consuming the herb very often, or ever, prior to my mid-twenties. I was a high-level athlete who never rocked the boat; I received straight A’s in high school and always did what I was asked, my siblings tolerated me, but my mom loved me. I was the “golden boy,” if you asked any of my brothers or sisters.

Shortly after graduating in 2014, from Michigan State University I moved westward to California where I coached wrestling for 1 season at Stanford University, and developed a taste for the controversial plant many of us love today. I eventually left my wrestling career behind and moved north to Marin County, Ca. When I told my mom about my decision to work in the industry she was aware of my use and wasn’t too keen on me or any of my siblings using it. She believed it to be mostly negative.  

I called her one morning and told her how I was going to be writing articles and managing social media accounts for Nice Guys Delivery, and the first words out of her mouth were, “that’s not going to be on Facebook is it?” I think I fell out of “golden boy” status in that moment.

Positive change manifests from open and honest communication

Telling my mom, I worked in the cannabis industry could have been destructive and downright bad, but I tried to keep the conversation light and informative. I may have side-stepped her questioning tone in the moment, but since have eased tension surrounding the topic quite a bit. I found highlighting the benefits of my decision and taking the time to explain why I enjoy cannabis helped alleviate some of her concerns. I talked about the research going into it and the benefits people were saying they felt from it, I told her I could receive health insurance from the company and that it was completely legal in the state I was working.

She asked quite a few questions but never tried to control the situation, which I’m grateful for. Since our initial conversation she’s changed her view a lot. She still doesn’t like the idea of her kids using the plant for recreational purposes, but I don’t believe she views it as the destructive force she once did. She recently began asking questions about CBD and whether or not it would be a good option for her, and when I go home for holidays I don’t feel like I have to hide my consumption habits any longer.

I may no longer be the “golden boy” in her mind, but at least she has a more accurate representation of me and what I’m into as a young adult, strengthening our relationship for the future.

Below is a list of conversational insights to consider when faced with a similar situation and you're worried about damaging a relationship after coming out of the “cannabis closet.”

  1. Enter the conversation with an open mind. We as people commonly project wrong beliefs about what we think someone else thinks, rather than simply being open and honest about our thoughts and allowing the person to form their own opinions. No two minds think exactly alike.
  2. If at all possible talk in person rather than phone or other methods of communication. I called because I live 2,500 miles from where my mom lives.
  3. Explain the plants long history used across multiple cultures throughout the world.
  4. Highlight the science and discuss the positive aspects of the plant but keep it simple and try to avoid jumping directly into the extended canna-lingo because that approach can produce a negative response in some people. It’s never a good idea to make someone feel dumb, even when done unintentionally.
  5. Set and setting matter. Approach the conversation when the person is relaxed, in a good mood, and has a moment to listen to what you have to say. I don’t recommend discussing this stuff during a busy or highly stressful time.
  6. Prepare for the unexpected. You might find that the person you’re talking to is a user themselves. There are still plenty of closet smokers in 2018 - through opening yourself and talking about your beliefs you might inspire someone else to do the same.
  7.  Always respect their opinion. You may not change their thoughts after one conversation, and chances are likely you won’t. But the way you respond to their reaction goes a long way in the way they perceive cannabis in the future.
