No, by non-fungible I’m not talking about something mushroom related. An NFT allows you to buy and collect signed digital art, music, and yes, even tweets!

Ok, it’s not actually signed by a human like a signed album or headshot. It’s verified for it’s authenticity through crypto, meaning it’s in limited edition (usually one of a kind!) and there are no fakes.

We’ve become almost numb to the sound of notifications going off on our phones and tablets, incoming emails, alerts and a myriad of other online signals that pull our…


There are three classes of cannabinoids: endocannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, and synthetic cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are marijuana-like compounds produced by our bodies that activate the endocannabinoid system, the largest neurotransmitter system in the body.

Where do phytocannabinoids come from?
