Love weed? Love love? There are a number of ways you can incorporate weed into romantic time with your partner, or even just with yourself to get in the mood. Of course, weed is a natural aphrodisiac and can help you be more emotionally open or even orgasm. But there are also a number of products you can add to your bedroom for a relaxing, reefer romance. Turn the lights down, light some candles, and set a dreamy ambience with weed candles.
Genifer Murray has been working in the cannabis industry for almost a decade. In 2010, she founded CannLabs, a marijuana testing laboratory in Colorado, and later on she founded Carbon Blue Consulting, which provides science-driven insights to cannabis laboratories. As an advocate for the plant, Murray wanted to wear jewelry that represented her views, but she found all the classic pot leaf designs to be cheap and mass produced.
Next time you have a migraine, you might want to think twice before popping an advil to treat it. Cannabis could work just as well, and doesn’t come with the side effect of compromising your liver. According to a study that was presented at the 3rd Congress of the European Academy of Neurology, cannabinoid treatment is just as suitable for alleviating migraines as pharmaceutical options.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
