Aches CBD Vape Pen Review

Cannabis, Product Review

Summon relief immediately using Wildflower Aches CBD vape pens.

As legal cannabis markets continue to open up we see new varieties of consumer walk into dispensaries. With emerging demographics of cannabis users, we are seeing a constant rise in vape cartridge sales. The discretion of these products is ideal for many newer customers looking to inhale their cannabinoids. And like almost every cannabis company in Washington, Wildflower carries two formulas of vape pens. They have each flavor available in both a disposable and rechargeable option. The stand apart from their competitors because of the ability to microdose and the heavy influence of CBD rather than THC.

The Aches vape pen from Wildflower is infused with CBD and other herbs to encourage a breakup of inflammation, inhibiting aches and pains. Aside from the discretion, vaping is more attractive to patients and recreational users because our lungs are a more direct line to our bloodstream than capsules or tincture. That means if we’re having a pain flare-up or simply want CBD right now, a vape pen would be the right choice. This vape pen doesn’t just have CBD, but as we mentioned above also three herbs from the mint family. Just one 5-second puff we get 2mg of CBD along with the stimulating aromatics of the added herbs.

Personally, the Aches vape pen has been a versatile godsend in my arsenal of cannabis products. It is the perfect thing for ‘right now’ as I’m dealing with a muscle flare up, gastrointestinal discomfort, or just a surge of anxiety. A few weeks ago I dealt with a pretty serious back spasm and the Aches pen was my first step to relief. For such an intense pain I started with a hit of the pen, applied my Cool Stick, took two capsules, and then hit the vape again. Since the edibles items take 20 minutes to an hour to kick in the pen was crucial to my relief. The back spasm didn’t subside for two days, but the vape pen held true for me as a very real portal to pain relief. Frankly, it is best used alongside both the topical and the edible products for the best results. All three products used together has been the most phenomenal relief for me to help with body pain, muscle soreness, and aching joints.

Two tokes on the Aches pen brings a refreshing flavor alongside mellow, relaxing results. Try using it alongside the Cool Stick and/or CBD Tincture for the best results.

What’s In My Cup? Success & Vitality Tea

Lifestyle, What's In My Cup?

I’m sorry guys, it’s been so long since I shared a cup of tea with you. You see, I’ve been working with the same herbs and haven’t changed anything up in awhile. Most of my herb time is spent researching for Herb Spotlights here on the blog or brewing tea to put in my kombucha. But after spending some time brainstorming what kind of tea blends I’d like to see I decided to put a cup of success together.

There are certain herbs that have an affinity to bring success to those who utilize them correctly and I’ve taken all of the ones that would blend together in a delicious cup of tea and crafted just that. Aside form brewing up success in your life this tea blend will promote relaxation in your system while also bringing relief to a harsh respiratory system.

What’s In My Cup? Blissed Out Post Yoga Edition

What's In My Cup?

I took the most delicious yoga class yesterday, seriously I have not felt that mushy and strong at the same time in my whole life. The class was feminine based and focused on moon salutations as opposed to sun salutations. I’d like you to know that I slept better last night than I have in years, and I ate TONS of sugar yesterday since I was baking those epic whoopie pies. I almost wanted more coffee when I got home, but I decided I would make a cup of tea to keep vining on the super blissed out feelings that I was already feeling.

A naturopath in town makes herbal tonics with a  pitcher plant base, that is what is in my joint and muscle tonic. Today we’re going to look into the tea, but keep an eye out for a spotlight post not the herbs in the Joint and Muscle tonic that I listed below. Also keep an eye out because I intend to write about my yoga experience as well… it was just that good!

This blend will aide in relieving:

  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • ADHD
  • nausea
  • auto immune oriented thyroid issues
  • inflammation

Simply Mix Together:

1 TB dried Lavender

1/5 TB dried Lemon Balm

1 tsp Joint and Muscle Tonic

Put the dried herbs into your tea ball and the tonic into the bottom of the cup. Once water has boiled pour 6-8 oz of water over your tea ball and the tonic, stir until you see the tonic disperse into the water. Let steep 5-15 minutes depending on your own personal preferences. Enjoy this blend at any time, during a lazy afternoon as the monsoon comes in (which is how I enjoyed mine) or in the evening before bed. The flavor profiles will be mellow and floral with a sweet citrus undertone. There is some alcohol in the tonic, so be weary if you are sensitive to alcohol.

Sit with your warm cup, let the aromas of relaxation wash over you and meditate on this mantra: I cultivate my own garden. 

Monday Night Dinners Dessert Hour: Lavender Whoopie Pies

Recipes

Nom Nom Nom I am a sugar fiend. Ever since I quit dairy and tobacoo I’ve let my other vices go wild. I get seriously weird on the sugar and the caffeine on a regular basis, which has seriously messed with my sleeping and mood patterns. But whatever, dessert is luxurious and if I learn moderation it’s all good. Which is why I baked the most decadent dessert yesterday that I have under my belt.

It all started when one of my favorite patients at work brought me fresh lavender, I immediately knew that I wanted to bake with it. I found a recipe online for these lavender whoopee pies and history has been made. I shifted the recipe to be natural and dairy free for my and the lover and pulled out a truly delicious piece of heaven.

Ingredients:

Whoopee Pies:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk yogurt, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 4 tsp dried lavender
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup earth balance soy butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs

Vanilla Frosting:

  • 1 cup earth balance soy butter, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 TB almond milk; unsweetened

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor combine yogurt, milk, dried lavender and vanilla. Blend for 1 minute, scraping the mixture from the sides once. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer and diligently rub spatula against strainer to get all of the oils out of the lavender. Make sure you empty all of the contents from the processor to ensure all of the lavender is used. Set the bowl aside and reserve for later.
  2. In a medium-large mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds. For about 2 minutes in a separate mixing bowl whip butter, oil and sugar on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. One at a time, blend in the eggs. Slowly add the flour mixture in three parts, only adding the next phase of flour when all is incorporated. Be careful not to overmix, balance is a virtue.
  3. Transfer batter into piping bag fitted with 1/4-1/2 inch round tip. I’ll be frank with you, I don’t have a piping bag and I made mine out of a plastic baggy. Just cup the tip off of the corner. Pipe little cakes onto parchment paper covered cookie trays. Start in the middle and let the dough expand, making each about 1 3/4 inch rounds about 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven 7 minutes, or until tops of cookies appear cooked. Remove from tray immediately to cooling rack.
  4. In an electric standup mixer combine butter and vanilla until white and fluffed. Next add in the milk and slowly add powdered sugar until desired texture is reached. Mix about 5 minutes. Once cookies are cooled spread frosting on the bottom of two cookies and press together. Store refrigerated in airtight containers, they do best placed with wax paper between them.

What’s In My Cup?

ayurveda, What's In My Cup?

I made some slow brewed iced tea for this post. I am a huge fan of hibiscus if you haven’t noticed yet, you will. This time I threw together some flavors of herbal relief that I have been searching for as I want to keep my spark but also decompress more often. I wanted a pitcher of tea around that would be both refreshing and relaxing.

I’ll pour a cup when I’m looking for a mellow jolt in the afternoon. It is a refreshing zing with a back taste of warm mint. Good for the lazy day off or the lunch break refreshment.

This specific blend will aid in:

  • Circulatory System health
  • Inflammation
  • Migraine relief
  • Gastrointestinal health
  • Nausea

Simply mix together:

3 TB Hibiscus in a separate tea bag

3 TB Lavender in a separate tea bag

1 Spearmint tea bag

Pour 1.5 quarts water over bags and let sit in fridge in covered pitcher for at least one day. You can leave it longer per your taste just remember that hibiscus doesn’t mess around, it will be flavorful quickly even with a cold steep. Remove tea bags and keep pitcher in fridge, it should remain good for 1-2 weeks.
