Because we make products in five CBD-to-THC ratios, we get questions all the time about which ratios are right for each individual. We believe the “perfect ratio” depends on your tolerance for the psychoactive effects of THC. We recommend starting with a low dose of a low THC ratio for a few days and see how you feel. If you’re confident you can handle more THC, try the next ratio up and see if that works for you.

Besides looking totally Insta-worthy, this CBD Matcha Latte is totally delicious. We have to admit, we cheated a little because we’re loving this matcha latte mix from Lakanto that blends master-grade green tea with monk fruit sweetener. It’s vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and packed with probiotics. If you’re a purist, we recommend looking for ceremonial-grade matcha powder. It has a smooth taste, nice feel in your mouth, and it’s less bitter than ingredient-grade matcha.

Over the years, the evolution of cannabis has changed and what has been used predominantly for getting high, is now being used for so much more. It’s available to more Californians than ever before, and we’re starting to frequently hear, “What exactly is CBD?” Cannabis plants produce more than 400 different compounds, and of those, more than 60 of them are specific to the cannabis plant.
