If you’re thinking about making the foray into grow-it-yourself cannabis (GIY), stay tuned for the next installments of this GIY cannabis series for tips and tricks re: gardening your own bud. Before we dive into that, though, here are some considerations that relate to rules and etiquette to get you started on the right path.

Oregon’s multi-faceted cannabis market is filled with creative entrepreneurs that contribute to a thriving and expanding industry. One such company is East Fork Cultivars, a fully sun-grown CBD cannabis farm in Southern Oregon’s Illinois Valley.

The more we learn about the effects of cannabis and the science behind them, the more apparent it becomes that there is more at play than the raw THC and CBD numbers we see on jars and labels. While the amount of THC definitely plays a large role in the potency of a strain, the various terpenes found in cannabis are just as important in determining how a particular variety of our favorite plant is going to affect you.
Queen Bee was an obvious choice for this week’s strain highlight. Mostly because it just arrived to Tetra last week, but also because its name is reminiscent of her majesty Queen Bey. The truth is, this strain wasn’t named for Beyoncé. That said, it might make you feel—at least momentarily—like one of her backup dancers.

What a time to be alive! Pot shops are being advertised on billboards and everyone’s favorite portable smoking method is now available for easy in-store purchase—pre-rolls. While it’s certainly convenient and exciting to walk into a store and buy pre-rolled joints, there’s no substitute for the hands-on experience of rolling your own.
When it comes to consuming cannabis, few methods are as classic as a joint. Whether you’re an old timer or a newbie, everyone should be able to roll up a doobie—or at least have the proper tools handy for someone else to step up. All you really need is a pack of Zig Zags and some tasty herb, but if you’re looking to take your roll game to the next level, here are some accessories to get you started.
