Is your Dispensary Curing on the Shelf?

Or is their Cannabis Decaying on the Shelf?


Did you know Curing is the most critical part of cannabis cultivation?

Curing is another term for aging. After hang drying, a cultivator introduces cannabis to a container, ideally at a stable humidity lever, for a time between a couple of weeks to a few months.

A proper cure is essential for maximum patient safety, maximum quality (color, aroma, flavor) and maximum therapeutic benefits.

The thing is, few cultivators/dispensaries cure properly because demand is so high. They can easily provide dam good cannabis now at the expense of providing really outstanding cannabis later. There's a growing number of them now curing on the shelf by packaging cannabis with the world's only precision 2-way humidity control - Boveda. Is your favorite dispensary doing it?

With Boveda everywhere cannabis is present, we're adding and removing moisture to maintain a stable humidity level at the perfect curing humidity. That means your cannabis retains 15% more terpenes - the beneficial compounds you are buying it for. So instead of cannabis losing quality on the shelf, Boveda in the containers is curing it - making it better.

Cultivators/Packagers/Processors across the country are starting to cure on the shelf with Boveda. If they're not already, ask your favorite dispensary when they're gonna start!

Medical Marijuana vs Prescription Drugs


Statistics show that states that have legalized medical marijuana and made it available to patients have seen a 25% drop in opiate related overdoses. This alone proves that patients are choosing medical marijuana as a safer alternative – but now there’s a study that backs up this statistic. Researchers took a look at how much Medicare was spending on prescription medications (through Medicare Part D) and found that the number of prescriptions for conditions that can be alternatively treated with medical marijuana declined from 2010 – 2013.

Prescriptions for things like opioid painkillers (think Vicodin, OxyContin, Hydrocodone, etc), anti-anxiety, and antidepressants – among others – all saw a significant drop during that time period, but only in states with medical marijuana programs. That drop saved Medicare roughly $165.2 million in 2013 alone and the number of daily doses of painkillers alone dropped by 1826 doses – all pointing to the fact that patients were choosing medical marijuana and doctors were recommending it. 

“The results suggest people are really using marijuana as medicine and not just using it for recreational purposes,” Ashley Bradford, a student researcher at the University of Georgia (UGA) and the lead author of the new study, said in a statement.

These findings were also based on the fact that medications for which medical marijuana is not an alternative (blood thinners, for example) have not seen a reduction in the number of daily doses prescribed and paid for. While this data is not scientific proof that medical marijuana works – it is proof that enough people are turning to it, so it must be effective. Otherwise, wouldn’t people stick to the medications that did work?

“We wouldn’t say that saving money is the reason to adopt this. But it should be part of the discussion,” he (W. David Bradfor) added. “We think it’s pretty good indirect evidence that people are using this as medication.”

Millions of dollars saved only ends up accounting for 0.5% of the spending tracked by Medicare Part D – and if medical marijuana ever becomes Schedule II then insurance may begin to cover it (though likely only FDA approved versions) so that savings wouldn’t be quite as significant later on – but it’s still nothing to ignore. Marijuana is less expensive to produce, especially on a large scale, so it would still end up being a more cost effective treatment in the end.

MMJ All About Tincture


Tinctures are an ages-old method of delivering the medicinal benefits of marijuana to patients of all ages. While cannabis that is high in psychoactive THC and, thus, relatively potent can certainly be used to create a tincture, historically this extraction and consumption method has been limited to purely medical applications and was often considered a “hemp extract” or “hemp oil.”

Another way of describing a tincture is an alcohol infused with cannabis resin. According to The Weed Blog, an online publication out of Oregon, many seasoned marijuana smokers aren’t even aware of the humble tincture, let alone have ever partaken of such an extraction. Said the blog in one of its posts:

“Tinctures are perhaps the least popular and beloved way of consuming marijuana. They don’t have the ritual that comes with smoking, nor the fun of edibles.”

While not the type of concentrate that captures headlines and results in petabytes of pot porn floating amongst the internets, tinctures are, without a doubt, the oldest mass-market way of extracting and consuming the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the medicine-bearing trichomes of the cannabis plant. During the majority of the 19th century, physicians from throughout North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe dispensed, recommended, and prescribed cannabis tinctures for a wide variety of common ailments.

In fact, during the period of 1837 to 1937, which some writers have referred to as the golden age of medical cannabis — and the century preceding its federal-level prohibition in the United States — a mild cannabis tincture, typically manufactured by a large pharmaceutical company, was the home solution administered to adults and children suffering from everything from skinned knees and headaches to sore muscles and menstrual cramps.

In 1890, British physician J.R. Reynolds published his 30 years of experience with cannabis, recommending it for multiple conditions. In his position as the court physician to Queen Victoria, he infamously administered a tincture-infused cannabis tea for her menstrual cramps. During this period, it was rare that a tincture of “cannabis sativa” was not present in the medicine cabinets of everyone from wealthy downtown debutantes to prairie ranchers to middle class suburbanites.

According to the book Understanding Medical Marijuana, “…one museum has identified more than 600 medical products involving marijuana as a chief ingredient prior to its prohibition in 1937.” Most of these would have been packaged and distributed through retail pharmacies, drug stores, and physicians as tinctures.
