As the cannabis industry advances, remarkable new marijuana products are being created with stunning medical benefits.
There’s an old “Saturday Night Live” sketch that parodies a Cool Whip commercial. Cast members Dan Ackroyd and Gilda Radner argue over whether Shimmer, a new product, is a dessert topping or a floor wax. Turns out Shimmer is both! It tastes great but it will also leave your floor shining.
Higher Vision Super Oil is no floor wax, but its applications are certainly diverse. Super Oil can be applied to a joint, it can be used in a vapor pen, it’s dabbable with a rig, it can be applied as a topical oil on your skin and it’s edible. Now that’s an all-purpose cannabis product!
Adam Lustig, the founder of Higher Vision, explains that Super Oil is a blend of pure THC distillate and live cannabis terpenes. It’s derived from the same, single source with nothing added. “We’re proud of Super Oil’s universality,” he says. “We wanted to create a product that’s healthy and allows consumers an array of choices for its use. The standards for cannabis products to be contaminant-free have become more stringent. We’ve worked very hard to make sure that Super Oil is free of all pesticides, mycotoxins and residual solvents.”
Super Oil made its debut last July, but is already widely used by cannabis chefs. It will be widely released to consumers late this spring. Adam says, “We’re expanding to include all things cannabis-related. Our mission is to bring about health and healing.”
At Waska Farms in Mendocino County, verdant fields of organic, sun-grown cannabis surround the kitchen where Waska cannabis drinks are produced. Carey Grafmiller, the creator of Waska, grows a number of highly coveted sativa, indica and high-CBD strains. Following harvest, the raw cannabis flowers are frozen.
In the kitchen, they are blended together and infused into the drink itself, a lightly sweetened, non-dairy hemp beverage, made from shelled hemp seed, that’s smooth and creamy. Carey says, “By blending strains together, we provide a wide range of cannabinoid compounds in every bottle.”
California dispensaries are finding Waska to be a popular purchase. They come in both low-dosage and high-dosage versions and are available in flavors like chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and black cherry. High-CBD Waska is also available. Best of all, you can put Waska drinks in the freezer for up to a year and lose none of its freshness or potency.
As fans of Carlos Santana already know, “Smooth” was the 1999 hit collaboration between Santana and Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty. Late last year, the rock legend partnered up with Marisol Therapeutics of Pueblo, CO to release the Santana Smooth inhaler. It’s also a major hit.
For consumers who are unable to smoke cannabis or vaporize, inhalers offer an outstanding solution. They provide a precise dose of medical cannabis. They’re safe and convenient, allowing patients to alleviate their symptoms while also minimizing the psychoactive properties of cannabis.
The Santana Smooth inhaler operates without heating the THC, as a vapor pen does. It works like any typical inhaler, propelling the medicine directly to one’s lungs.
The Santana Smooth inhaler is now available at dispensaries throughout Colorado. Its formal unveiling took place at Marisol’s flagship dispensary last November. Carlos Santana was there to explain its purpose. “We want to affect consciousness with healing and giving people a better quality of life physically and hopefully psychologically. The world needs to know that there’s a difference between medicine and drugs. Humans make drugs in laboratories. Mother Nature makes medicine.”
