How refreshing! A new take on the compact grinder has been revealed by none other than Cloudious9. The Tectonic9 grinder is a new electronic dispensing mechanism for dry herbs. It is the perfect companion for either the Hydrology9 or Atomic9 vaporizer.
Its not everyday that the dry herb grinder gets a facelift. This is a welcomed now device to the cannabis industry. This is not your typical 3 piece grinder, this new dry herb grinder is a perfect match for the Hydrology9 LED water filtration vaporizer bong.
Traditional grinders have been perfected to provide consistent results, however they have become quite boring. It’s great to see that Cloudious9 has brought new features to a product that has remained relatively unchanged for a number of years. The Tectonic9 grinder is a combination of a compact grinder and an automatic grinder. Usually automatic grinders are a lot larger in size. This new compact electric grinder is more ideal for travel.
The viewing window allows you to have a look under the hood to see how much material is left.
The spout that dispenses the material can be tucked away when not in use making it easier to pack away.
Materials are securely stored and easily accessible
The right goldy lock zone for grinding perfection
The tectonic9 has been designed to evenly distribute material prior to dispensing
The vibrating component allows for material to be evenly distributed, maintain texture, and be brought forward to the sliding gate pathway for easy dispensing.
It has been a little over 2 years since Cloudious9 released its innovative portable water filtration vaporizer. The Hydrology9 resembled that of a futuristic light saber lava lamp. We are happy to announce that Cloudious9 has just released news that they will be releasing a new portable vaporizer called the Atomic9 vaporizer that has a few new and exciting features built into it as well.
The Atomic9 is the 2nd vaporizer in Cloudious9’s growing lineup up devices. This new compact portable vaporizer is designed with hybrid heating. It uses a mixture of conductive and convection heating to heat dry herbs. The patent pending ‘dual layer’ heating makes sure that your materials are used effectively. It is unusual for convection vaporizers to come in smaller sizes due to the size of the battery required to heat with this oven method. The Atomic9 vaporizer however, is able to do this without such a large battery, which has resulted in a very cost effective portable convection vaporizer. ALong with the release of the Atomic9 Cloudious9 has also released news of the Tectonic9 Grinder.
Made to be effective right out of the box. The Atomic9 has six preset temperature settings in the range of 356F to 428F. This range is perfect to get quality rips that deliver an enjoyable herbal taste.
Residue build up can get sticky! The biggest issue with most portable vaporizers is that they are a big hassle to maintain after a few weeks of use. The vapor paths start to get more narrow the oven lid doesn’t close as well, and there are areas that you can’t get to to properly clean and restore your device to working condition. The Atomic9 has been designed to help fix this issue. All areas that typically get residue/tar build up are accessible or detachable to give a quick clean.
Fumble and waste your precious herb no more! The Atomic9 boosts a easy loader that makes repacking the oven chamber quick and easy. This is a unique component similar to the built in oven stir stick that we saw with the Hydrology9.
When dealing with smaller vaporizers which have the heating components very close to the mouthpiece and your lips an often downfall is that the vapor will remain to hot as it enters the users mouth. The Atomic9 has been thoughtfully designed to cool down the vapor as it enters your mouth. Built into the magnetic lid is a cooling chamber that helps to lower the temperature while providing a rich tasting vapor.
It wouldn’t by a device from Cloudious9 if it didn’t have some sort of new innovative technological components built into it. Following in the footsteps of the Hydrology9 the Atomic9 utilizes both convection and conduction heating. This patent pending heating method makes this a unique new portable vaporizer.
For a very affordable budget vaporizer the Atomic9 spared no expense with its quality of material. The design is built to be strong and withstand some serious collisions. The shell is made of an anodized aluminum casing.

Hybrid convection quality vapor path
Six easily adjustable temperature settings from 356 to 428
Retractable dry herb loading component
Compact sized design
Quick vapor cooling down chamber
Simple one button user control

OUIDE Edibles (QuideEdibles.com) offers three simple and effective methods to support your THC and CBD therapy routine. Ouide Edibles has traditional gummy tablets (seen in the image above) that you can use easily and conveniently, they also have pills for chronic conditions and smaller mico dosed pastilles for discrete support.
A peaceful camping trip in the forest was enhanced with Ouide gummies. The gummies that me and my girlfriend used on our camping trip were the 20 mg gummies. We each had half (10mg’s each) which created a enjoyable mood.
Since I ordered the 20mg gummies the official site for Ouide Edibles has gone through a make over and it seems they have done some rebranding/product updates. There are many new options such as 8:1 thc to cbd and many different strengths.
Having had many edibles in my past, I have been disappointing many times before when THC watermelon slice edibles turn out to deliver no effect. I was very happy with the results of the Ouide edibles and would recommend them to anyone looking to order edibles online. 10mg is a pretty strong dose with the Ouide brand, it seems much more effective then say a 20mg option from past brands that I have tried.
The price point is respectful (not very expensive), however one thing I would recommend is that you order online, you do so in bulk. I suggest seeing if a few friends are interested in purchasing something at the same time.The shipping costs for ordering just one thing really makes it not worth it. If you order 3 or 4 containers you will get your money’s worth more.
I have placed a new order and will be trying the CBD dominant pills, and a new batch of THC dominant gummies. I have gathered a bit of information on the gummies and pills which you can read below. If interested in giving these a try you can order them online here – OUIDE Edibles (QuideEdibles.com)
Ouide Edibles has gone through a rebranding and now offers THC and CBD pills. The Ouide pills are a convenient and effective way to incorporate cannabis into your daily wellness routine while knowing the dosage level of each delivery.
Ouide pills are vegan! Each capsule contains full spectrum extract grown in Canada, and organic MCT oil.
Ouide Edible’s has done a great job at making their products look like medicine. The packaging resembles that of a vitamin container. Their products work well and are reasonably priced. OUIDE’s mission is to empower people with the healing properties of naturally occurring cannabinoids. Feel like giving them a shot? You can do so here – OUIDE Edibles (QuideEdibles.com)

From epilepsy to arthritis and anxiety, it seems there’s no symptom or condition that CBD can’t address.
And it’s not just humans that are benefiting from CBD.
As you probably know, more and more dog owners are also giving CBD to their furry friends, and with good reason:
CBD can be just as beneficial for dogs as it is for humans.
Read on to learn more.
Dogs, just like humans and other mammals, also have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help keep their body in balance.
The ECS consists of endocannabinoids, special enzymes, and cannabinoid receptors, and is a major regulatory system that helps mediate a lot of different physiological processes in your dog’s body.
For example, the ECS can help regulate inflammation, pain signaling, mood, memory, sleep, and much more.
A growing body of research suggests that the endocannabinoid system helps promote “homeostasis,” a state of equilibrium that helps the body function at its best.
Some of this research also suggests that the disruption to this balance could be the root cause of a wide variety of different health problems.
Researchers such as Dr. Ethan Russo, Director of Research and Development at the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute, for example, suggest that Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency could be the cause of a wide variety of conditions.
Researchers suggest that this might be why cannabinoids are proving to be successful in treating so many different, seemingly unrelated conditions.
Cannabinoid therapies work by using compounds like CBD to help regulate the endocannabinoid system.
THC, for example, can fit directly into cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body.
When it does, it can trigger an array of responses and produces that iconic high associated with cannabis.
CBD, on the other hand, works by activating over 60 different molecular pathways and acting on receptors for serotonin, GABA, gamma, vanilloids, and more.
When it does, it can have a wide variety of benefits, all without producing any kind of intoxicating effects.
Keep reading for more info on some of the benefits of CBD for dogs:
CBD has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
That’s why, for example, it’s becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, autoimmune diseases, and more.
Research suggests that, like regular anti-inflammatory drugs, CBD works on COX enzymes.
Drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin, for example, work by blocking both COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, both of which produce special compounds known as prostaglandins.
The prostaglandins produced by COX-1 help protect the lining of the stomach and intestines, and play a key role in activating platelets for blood clotting.
COX-2 prostaglandins, on the other hand, help regulate the body’s inflammatory response to injury and/or infection.
Standard NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen typically work by blocking both COX enzymes and the production of their respective prostaglandins.
This helps reduce inflammation but also causes side effects like gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers, and more if used incorrectly.
CBD, however, is much more selective.
Studies show, for example, that both CBD and CBDA (the acidic precursor to CBD) both deliver anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting COX-2 enzymes.
Meanwhile, CBD and other cannabinoids don’t seem to interact with COX-1, suggesting they can offer anti-inflammatory effects without the side effects associated with regular NSAIDs.
Another reason CBD has become so popular is due to its anti-anxiety effects.
And, as a dog owner, I’m sure you know that, just like us humans, dogs can suffer from anxiety, too.
Some pups might get anxious during a storm, while others might suffer while traveling in the car.
Separation anxiety is also a really common form of anxiety in dogs.
Luckily, CBD can deliver its anti-anxiety effects in a number of different ways.
First of all, CBD has been shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain.
Serotonin, as you might now, is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating mood, stress response, pain signaling, and much more.
CBD can mimic the effects of serotonin by binding directly to serotonin receptors in various parts of the brain.
Studies show, for example, that CBD can bind to 5-HT1A receptors, which are involved in mediating a variety of bodily processes, including anxiety and stress response, appetite, sleep, pain signaling, and more.
CBD can also boost the levels of anandamide in the brain.
Anandamide is a natural endocannabinoid which, like serotonin, can have mood-boosting effects.
CBD increases anandamide levels by blocking a process known as “reuptake,” during which excess anandamide is reabsorbed into neurons in the brain after they fire.
By blocking this process of re-absorption, CBD can temporarily increase anandamide levels in the brain and in turn help reduce anxiety and stress.
In 2013, the story of Charlotte Figi, a young girl from The US with a severe form of epilepsy made headlines all around the globe.
Charlotte suffered from up to 300 grand mal seizures a week, and her family had tried every medication under the sun in order to help her find relief.
Eventually, Charlotte’s doctors decided that there was nothing more they could do for her and that her family should start preparing for the worst.
But that all changed thanks to a CBD-rich cannabis tincture now known as Charlotte’s Web.
Charlotte’s story gave hope to countless families across the world, and CBD is today recognized as a powerful alternative treatment for various types of epilepsy, including Dravet syndrome.
And, just like it did for Charlotte, CBD can also help reduce the severity and recurrence of seizures in pets.
In fact, many pet owners are already using CBD to treat epilepsy in their dogs and other companion animals.
CBD: A Multipurpose Pet Health Supplement
CBD is a really complex molecule that, by interacting with your pet’s endocannabinoid system, can have multiple health benefits.
Hence, whether your dog suffers from a particular condition like those I mentioned above or you’re just looking for a comprehensive supplement to boost their health, I highly recommend giving CBD a try.
Best of all, CBD is completely safe, non-toxic, and won’t get your furry friends high.

Ever since the results of studies conducted by scientists and researchers showed the wondrous therapeutic benefits of CBD, many marijuana-derived CBD products are being sold in the market. These products come in different forms such as oils or tinctures, lotions or creams, capsules or pill, vaping ingredients, and edibles.
The article will focus on the edibles and in particular, the vegan CBD gummies. Gummies are preferred by many users because aside from being affordable, you can be discreet and carry them gingerly inside your pocket, bag, or car. You can even store these ‘healthy treats’ in your drawer.
Backdrop on CBD
CBD is just one of the many active compounds you can find in the cannabis and hemp plant. It’s the second most popular compound after tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.
THC is what gives the ‘high’ effect that is associated with smoking weed or marijuana. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. Therefore, you need not worry that Vegan CBD gummies or other CBD-infused products from CBDfx will get you stoned.
The availability of CBD products is not yet widespread. Despite the known facts that CBD is safe, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) maintains that cannabis extracts, including CBD, belong in the category of Schedule I substances and still illegal under federal law. The legal issues surrounding the use of CBD are still in the process of being resolved. Check your state laws to confirm its legality in your area.
The powerful benefits of CBD
Cannabidiol or CBD oil is overflowing with powerful benefits. It should be emphasized that CBD will not produce any psychoactive effects. CBD oil products are prescribed or recommended for the purpose of alleviating symptoms linked to disorders and medical conditions. It could be appetite, mood, sleep, and pain.
Thus far, the results of recent studies validate the efficacy of CBD in providing relief from serious mental health conditions such as anxiety attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and schizophrenia among others. A study using rats as specimen even showed that CBD oil can also treat pain and arthritis.
Some evidence has emerged that CBD has the potential to treat epilepsy in children plus other seizure disorders. The anti-cancer properties of CBD, as well as its ability to mitigate the side effects of cancer treatment, are cropping up. Needless to say, the list of CBD benefits is growing. Advanced research would determine later on whether CBD would be up to the task in treating mental and physical health conditions.
In so far as CBD gummies are concerned, people can consume them to have a moderate, consistent dosage of CBD. It’s nice to have these candy-like goodies to sustain good physical condition the entire day.
Feel at your best with Vegan CBD gummies
Vegan CBD gummies are small and betray its awesome benefits. What’s great about this chewy CBD edible is that it’s all-natural and totally vegan. It does not contain animal gelatins. Hence, it’s safe for both sensitive adults and children.
The best kind of vegan CBD gummies comes from organically grown hemp. You can be assured that there are no harmful chemicals and toxic residues present. The manufacturer does not use corn syrup or artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors. You deserve to have CBD gummies that pack not just the “isolates” but a full-spectrum CBD in order to derive the powerful benefits of CBD.
However, you should know that there is a recommended dosage. You can’t take the vegan CBD gummies as you please. Usually, the dosage will depend on your physical structure like size or weight. Consult your doctor to know the proper dosage to be sure.
Generally, the top-of-the-line vegan CBD gummy comes in standard doses of 5 milligrams per candy. Once you’ve become accustomed to CBD gummies, obtain medical clearance before increasing the dose.
Verified users of vegan CBD gummies speak
Verified customers or users of vegan CBD gummies have reported nothing but pleasant experiences. Many reported being relieved from pain and anxiety. The comfort levels of those who have chronic pain have been elevated by CBD gummies. In fact, this CBD edible has been a great alternative to other medications.
People with sleeping problems can end their miseries at night. Some users of CBD gummies claimed remarkable improvement in the quality of sleep. Female users are also discovering the perfect solution to counter intense insomnia before their monthly period. PMA or premenstrual syndrome causes insomnia and CBD gummies can rid women of sleeplessness.
One mother administered a pair of 5 mg. CBD gummies to a son with special needs during a thunderstorm. The child loved the flavor and texture but it was the potency that made him sleep soundly during the night. The vegan CBD gummies are also far better than well-known sleep aids. You will not have problems getting up and will feel completely relaxed upon waking.
The astounding revelations and unique experiences by satisfied users only validate that consuming CBD gummies are beneficial and truly helps address some health problems.
On the overall, CBD edibles like the gummies are easy to take and easier to manage when it comes to dosage or consumption. When you’re buying these orally-taken gummies, always pick the full spectrum CBD. They’re not only THC-free but combine CBD with other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. It is precisely the reason why the pain is relieved and the feeling of relaxation prevails.
Nothing can compare to the many wellness benefits of these sweet and chewy supplements. Apart from the advantage of delivering easy-to-manage doses, vegan CBD gummies are imbued with high-quality CBD oil made from organic, non-GMO, and 100% vegan ingredients.
More importantly, you won’t fear any side effects in a way you anticipate them after taking pharmaceutical drugs. You’ll definitely be at ease and feel safe because CBD has ‘no psychoactive effects.’ For the money you’re spending, you get all the healing compounds that are naturally present within the cannabis plant.
Many are already convinced about the awesome benefits of CBD. Yet many are also hesitant and afraid to purchase CBD products due to legality. In the U.S., it is absolutely and totally legal to purchase CBD derived from industrial hemp. You should realize by now that only THC-infused products are scheduled by U.S. law.
If you’re interested in vegan CBD gummies, do not experiment. Remember that CBD tolerance varies from person to person. Consumption also depends on an individual’s weight. Seek prior medical clearance from your doctor.
But regardless of such differences, the outcome of ingesting vegan CBD gummies is always positive. The secret to a pleasurable experience with CBD is a good start at a reasonable pace.
Prepare to be overwhelmed
First-time users begin with small doses and gradually increase the dosage. Be patient and over time you’ll reach the CBD dosage that will work perfectly for you. It was a life-changing moment for those sought and found the natural remedy to combat anxiety, pain, and sleep disruptions.
Lastly, be prepared to be overwhelmed by the powerful benefits once you begin taking CBD edibles. Vegan CBD gummies are diminutive in size but it can contribute significantly to your overall physical well-being.
The growing portable vaporizer and vape pen market has been off the hook these past few years. Popular portable oil vaporizers like the Pax Era, Quant Wave, and Kandypens Rubi are being greeted by the new and improved Stiiizy vaporizer oil pen called the Biiig Stiiizy.
To use the Biiig Stiiizy, you need to do just two things – place the pod into the battery and inhale. Yes, it’s that simple. No buttons, just use it until it runs out of juice and then reload. The Biiig Stiiizy like the original Stiiizy has an automatic draw detection system that heats up the coils as you take your hit.
This is a bit of a tricky thing to measure as an all encompassing answer since it really depends on the type of oil that you are vaping. When and doubt just go with a high quality oil so that your not let down. Some less quality oils are not the greatest so if you want to get teh best results spend a bit more on your oils.
The Biiig Stiiizy comes as just the battery mod component which is a quality made product. The pods are sold separately so you will need to pick up some from a local dispensary that sells the.
The Biiig Stiiizy pods are compatible with both the original Stiiizy and the Biiig Stiiizy. The new larger Stiiizy has a longer battery life which makes it more portable. The size of the Biiig Stiiizy is still pretty small even though its the larger of the two models.
The Biiig Stiiizy is an improved version of the original model. The first versions performance and battery life were not the greatest. This has been given attention and the new version performs better and has a longer lasting battery. The no button design makes using the Biiig Stiiizy very simple and there isn’t much you can do wrong when trying to use it. At a price of around $35 this is a pretty good device.
