Just What is the Entourage Effect?

The wonderful and amazing thing about cannabis is that it’s so much more complicated than we could have imagined even four short years ago.

Cannabis Testing

Licensed cannabis retailers may only sell lab-tested products approved by certified analytical institutions whose job it is to ensure that marijuana is both effective and safe.

What about toast or wood or even grass?
