California-based dispensary brand Airfield Supply Company just unveiled CHECK YOURSELF, an awareness program supporting self-examining for breast cancer.  “We are using the new year, when so many look to set personal wellness intentions, to remind Californians from San Diego to San Francisco that if you are old enough to enjoy legal cannabis, you are old enough to make monthly self-exams a part of your routine.

I Took a Month Off of THC (So You Didn’t Have To)

The day I took 120mg of edibles and all I felt was a slight buzz was a wakeup call. The last time I took that amount in edibles, it was by accident. I was at a fancy work party and the night ended with me laughing so hard at the realization that I don’t know how to play chess that I collapsed on the floor and almost peed in my floor-length dress. My friend quietly put me in a cab at 6:30pm. (The party had started at 5:30pm.) To be able to ingest that amount now, many months into quarantine, […]
