Stress

Coffee and Cannabis

Coffee and cannabis are two of the most widely used psychoactive substances in the world. Whereas cannabis is often consumed to relax the body, enhance perception, and stimulate creativity, coffee – like tea and other caffeinated beverages – is typically used to energize and help people focus, particularly in the face of exhaustion.

Does it make sense to consume cannabis and coffee together? How do they interact? Is it fitting that decriminalized THC-rich cannabis was first sold over-the-counter in Amsterdam’s coffee shops?

Cannabinoids and Oxidation

Nishi Whiteley Cannabinoids & Oxidation

Nishi Whiteley discusses the theme of cannabinoids and oxidation from her book “Chronic Relief: A Guide to Cannabis for the Terminally & Chronically Ill”. In the same way that paint protects metal from rusting or lemon juice protects apples from turning brown, cannabinoids protect our cells from oxidation.
