There’s a new normal in town and its name is Cannabis.
Our aim is to make the cannabis buying experience disarming, compassionate and human. We’re calling bullshit on the stigma. Mother Earth put this good plant here with purpose—let us introduce you to a few of them.
We were publicans first, by virtue of two decades experience in hospitality as Donnelly Group, running public houses, cocktail clubs and barbershops. Our DNA is rich with an affinity for culture, relentless pursuit of great products and warm service attitude. We’ve summoned our passion for these things to energize into this modern retail brand.
For these reasons and others, people roll with us.
WTF are THC & CBD?
Well, science is now here to save the day. These two super common abbreviations stand for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two of cannabis’ main active compounds. The first is the psychoactive part of the plant and the other is most certainly not. THC is the one that produces those “high” effects – sometimes stilating, other times relaxing. While CBD eases anxiety and promotes relaxation without any psychoactive effects. It is also commonly used to treated various medical conditions.
Sativa and Indica, and Hybrids oh my?
We’ll take you on a journey that leads to a greener road than the Wizard of OZ. Strains are generally categorized with one of three terms; Indica, Sativa and Hybrid. To generalize: Indicas produce a heavier sense of high, with a more sedative “couch lock” effect. Sativas often contribute to an uplifting feeling, leading to creativity and socialization. Hybrids represent a majority of the stains we see on the market today, which come from a cross between the groups.

How do I know how cannabis will affect me?
Humans and plants both share similar chemical compounds called cannabinoids, produced through our Endocannabinoid system. This is thought to control how we feel and react, as everyone is so different our personal experiences will be also. Determining factors to keep in mind are genetics, mental health, usage, method of consumption, mood and daily activities.

What’s a good dose of CBD to start taking?
CBD is something that gradually builds in your system over time, meaning that you won’t notice the effects right away. For some people it can take up to 2 months before they begin to feel the benefits of CBD. Because of that, it’s something that you need to take consistently as well. A recommended dose for a beginner is anywhere around the 5-10mg range depending on the individual.
