It’s 420 Somewhere: How We Created the Classic Cannabis Effect in Edibles

Hey there! It’s time to get stoney boloney, and as our favorite saying goes—it’s 4:20 somewhere. This blog will act as your guide to the quintessential product line for getting absolutely baked.

Woah there, you might object, only an edible worthy of a special occasion could live up to that claim! That’s true, which is exactly why we spent a ridiculous amount of time meticulously focused on R&D.

We turned over more proverbial stones than a world-record-holding skipping stone champion (they also identify as stoners) to create an edible line that delivered the “classic” cannabis high we’ve all been searching for.

Now, this may be a long-winded introduction just to say these gummies and syrups were crafted using the highest-quality ingredients, cutting-edge cannabis science, and the passion of dedicated cannasseurs.

You see, we are not enticed by mediocrity when it comes to cannabis. We wanted to create something that lived up to the imagination cannabis can elicit, something that would disrupt the entire edible game. Basically, we created the edible we would want to buy.

It all started with the word stoney, which refers to the classic cannabis effect often depicted as the behavior of stoners in movies (insert your favorite weed flick).

A stoney high is the epitome of the cannabis experience characterized by feeling heavy, heady, and extremely comfortable. All hell could be breaking loose, but you are the calm, red-eye, of the storm. This also translates to the melting away of stress and physical discomfort, a one-and-done recipe for optimal relaxation.

These products are different from every other edible because of the uncommon combination of a unique cannabinoid blend, strain-specific terpene profile, and synergistic natural ingredients.

Hopefully, we’ve piqued your interest by now, but we’re not done yet. If you’d like to know all about our new Stoney gummies and syrups and how they can give you a one-of-a-kind experience, then continue reading below.

Enter the Stoned Age

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but we feel a better truism would be an edible a day keeps stress and pain away. The earliest records of cannabis use, which dates to ancient China, details its use for pain.

As time progressed, the Hindus of India started to use cannabis, again in edible form, to alleviate stress and elevate the consumer to higher spiritual realms. Is it any surprise that today cannabis is lauded for its ability to fight pain, relieve stress, and promote a relaxed sense of imaginative thought? We know it sounds too good to be true, so let’s look at the science!

To start, physical pain is the result of our body’s pain detection system, which is made up of pain detectors called nociceptors (no-sih-SEP-turs). The brain receives messages from the nociceptors via the spinal cord, which are then influenced by our personalities and environments.

The connection between pain and cannabis goes way back, but modern science has cleared the haze, allowing us to understand what is going on. Your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network that helps regulate pain, among other things.
Activation of CB1 receptors, located in the brain and spinal cord, provides analgesic effects that help to suppress both neuropathic and inflammatory pain-related behavioral responses. Additionally, activation of CB2 receptors, located in the immune system, inhibits the production of neurotransmitters that are responsible for experiencing pain.

Many of the cannabinoids found in cannabis, such as THC, activate these receptors. This may be a science-jargon-filled way of saying cannabis is the beautiful green kryptonite to the pain we all experience.

The Perfect Stoney Blend

So how did we create Stoney gummies and syrups to get you into a perfectly stoned state? Through our carefully crafted blend of cannabinoids, which include THC and CBG.
Read below to see how each part of the cannabinoid blend plays a crucial role in making you feel absolutely BAKED.

Classic THC

Of course, it’s impossible to get the feeling of being stoned without THC. After all, THC is the cannabinoid that’s responsible for making us feel high.

However, that’s not all it can do because THC has also been found to decrease pain and anxiety while increasing mood and creativity.

Think of all the times you’ve gotten incredibly high and laughed for hours before dozing off. Or another time where you focused on painting, drawing, or playing the guitar.

The Original Cannabinoid: CBG

Cannabigerol (CBG) is the cannabinoid that all others are descended from. When a cannabis plant is growing, CBG is the first cannabinoid that appears.

As the plant matures, the CBG is converted into THC, CBD, and CBC. However, not all of the CBG is converted, and there’s always some CBG that gets leftover.

Scientists have recently discovered that CBG has many incredible benefits of its own. CBG has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-pain properties, for starters, which can soothe chronic illnesses and sore muscles.

CBG can also better protect the brain, reduce blood pressure, and slow cancer growth.

More Than the Sum of Its Parts

Now, we wouldn’t have the best edibles on the market if we just threw random cannabinoids together. Instead, we carefully crafted this blend because of the entourage effect.

The entourage effect states that all the compounds in a cannabis plant can work together to create different effects. That’s why some strains feel stoney, some feel sleepy, and others are happy (see what we did there?).

For example, both THC and CBG have pain and anti-inflammatory properties. However, they achieve this same goal in different ways.

That means that one part THC and one part CBG will be much more effective than two parts THC alone.

The entourage effect doesn’t end there, because remember, all the compounds are involved—even terpenes.

Strain-Specific Terpene Profile

Instead of adding in random terpenes, we hand-selected the perfect stoney strains. In order to find them, we had to search high and low to find the stoniest of the stoney.

The two that we ended up choosing were two heavyweights—OG Kush and Wedding Cake.

OG Kush

Perhaps the most influential strain of all time, OG Kush changed the cannabis game forever. However, the background of OG Kush is a bit of an enigma.

What we do know is that OG Kush was likely a cross between Hindu Kush and an unknown strain first bred in Florida. Then, the first seeds of OG Kush were brought to the West Coast, where they started a revolution.

Now, you can’t throw a rock in a cannabis garden without hitting a strain with OG Kush genetics in it. That’s because people love OG Kush’s incredible euphoria and soothing relaxation that’s perfectly balanced.

Wedding Cake

Another West Coast classic, Wedding Cake was a strain that took connoisseur genetics to the next level. Wedding Cake was created by crossing Triangle Kush and Animal Mints.

When Wedding Cake first came out, every cannabis lover lined up at dispensaries for a slice. No one had ever seen buds that were completely covered in frost and stacked with THC.

The effects of Wedding Cake are pure joy, creativity, and an incredible sense of relaxation and contentment.

The Ultimate Stoney Strains

If you’ve tried either of these strains, then you know exactly why we chose them. They both provide the classic stoned feeling of euphoria, relaxation, joy, and creativity.

Trust us, we went through hundreds of strains, hunting down a handful that balanced all of these effects. Although many came close, OG Kush and Wedding Cake were the ones we always came back to.

Once we took a closer look at the strains, we discovered that they had similar terpene profiles.

A Closer Look at the Terpene Profile

Whether you’re involved with the cannabis industry or not, you know all about terpenes. That’s because terpenes are found in almost every plant on the face of the Earth.

Terpenes (or terps) are compounds that are responsible for the smell and taste that wafts from cannabis. However, scientists have discovered that terpenes can do more than just smell and taste good.

What they found was that each terpene has its own therapeutic effects. As we mentioned earlier, the entourage effect says that all the compounds—terpenes included—can change how a strain feels.

Now the interesting part is that both OG Kush and Wedding Cake have similar dominant terpenes of:

  • Myrcene—Myrcene gives off a musky and earthy aroma and sweet taste. However, scientists have discovered that myrcene can reduce inflammation and pain and act as a sedative.
  • Caryophyllene—This terp gives off a spicy and woody smell but has a sweet flavor. Caryophyllene is unique because it is the only terpene that can act like a cannabinoid. That means that caryophyllene uses the Endocannabinoid system and can reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Limonene—Every time you slice a lemon or peel a clementine, the fresh citrus smell is thanks to limonene. The best part of limonene is that it might be able to reduce stress, elevate mood, and act as an antioxidant.
    It’s likely that these terpenes and a few more work together to create that incredible stoney feeling. Instead of trying to improve nature, we adapted to it, which is why our Stoney gummies and syrups have the terpene profile of either OG Kush and Wedding Cake.

Crafted With Natural Ingredients

Our stoney story doesn’t just end there. We wanted to create an experience from the moment a gummy or a drop of syrup hits your tongue.

That’s why we made our Stoney products with all-natural and organic ingredients. After all, how could we make the best edibles without using the best ingredients?

The Stoney line comes in 2 flavors, and all are made with real fruit:

  • Prickly Pear Lemonade – Stoney gummies
  • Raspberry Smash – Stoney syrup

Besides tasting refreshing and delightful, we chose these fruits for a terpy purpose. To create synergy with the terpene profile of the strains, we carefully chose these flavors.

High amounts of limonene are found in Prickly Pear and Lemon, which further add to the euphoric effects.

Raspberries contain myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene—which all work in harmony with the strain’s terpene profile.

Sustainable Packaging

What good would all this effort be if we put our incredible edibles in polluting plastic? That’s why we decided to round off the entire experience by packaging our Stoney products in a sustainable container.

Each container is a reusable tin that’s 100% recyclable and reusable. When you’re done, recycle it so it can turn into something else, or use it for whatever your heart desires.

Store some extra bud, plant a flower, or start saving some loose change for your next tin of Stoney edibles.
