Readily available

Tinctures can be purchased at most dispensaries. At Colorado Grow Company, we have several flavors and strain types to delight your senses. Whether you like Cinnamon that combines CBD and THC or Spearmint THC or Watermelon THC – we got you.

Easy to use

Tinctures are packaged in small, convenient bottles. Take the tincture, by the drop, with an easy to use dropper. The droppers allow you to effectively and evenly while you are on the go.

Fitness with Cannabis

Cannabis and Fitness: Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

By | News | No Comments

Cannabis smokers are consistently stereotyped as lazy.  Power Plant Fitness is ready to change that. Welcome to the world’s first cannabis gym. Power Plant Fitness focuses on integrative full body and mind training. The first location is open in San Francisco. Locations will follow in Denver and Los Angeles.

Power Plant Fitness

Founder Jim McAlpine has joined with former NFL football player Ricky Williams to create this cannabis / fitness combination. “We’ll do a cannabis performance assessment for our clients by starting with a baseline workout. In a calculated way, we’ll determine the best protocol,” said McAlpine. The smoking area is separate.

According to McAlpine, there are two specific ways to incorporate cannabis into a fitness regimen. Either post-workout for pain and muscle recovery or he said many use cannabis for focus. “Whether it’s the gym, skiing, jogging or swimming, it allows my mind to laser focus,” he says. (Forbes)

From their Facebook page: What makes Power Plant Fitness unique? Members can consume cannabis in the gym while working out. As the recreational use of marijuana is now legal in some states and on the ballot in others, perceptions are changing quickly. These old stereotypes are being tossed out the window. The world is starting to realize that they have long been misled about the “evils” of marijuana. Marijuana will likely become ingrained into American society like Budweiser, Apple Pie, and baseball.

In addition, Jim has created the 420 Games and CannAthlete.

420 Games

These races and athletic events forge a new outlook on cannabis. All of the events accommodate beginning to advanced level athletes. Several events are planned for different locations summer 2017, including Colorado. Visit their website to see what is happening near you.

CannAthlete

Power Plant Fitness also produces a line of “athletic edibles” made for pre-workout focus and post-workout recovery.  The products are for those who want to incorporate cannabis into their daily routine.  Like the top level athletes that work with us, CannAthlete products are made with the highest standards. They are tested with high-level athletes to ensure peak absorption and efficacy.

What are your favorite strains for focus during your workout or post workout recovery?

Second Annual Doobie Rolling Contest -Get Durangalactic!

By | News | No Comments

Just in time for Intergalactic Snowdown -Durango’s own “cabin fever reliever” is the Second Annual Doobie Rolling Contest. Sponsored by Colorado Grow Company and El Rancho Tavern, there are contests for both speed rolling and creativity. Here are some ideas and tips for rolling a joint that is out of this world.

  1. The Cosmic Braid Doobie– Roll three thin joints with extra-long or king size papers. Use your favorite filter and leave the ends open. Push weed upward during rolling and braid them together (like you would braid hair or rope). Tie the three ends together and attach the mouthpieces together with a colorful piece of tape. Fire it up!
  1. The Seth Rogen Pineapple Express Famed Three Headed Space Hooter – Roll one giant doobie with a filter. Cut an even hole through both sides of the joint with an exact-o knife, sharp pencil, pocket knife or whatever tool you have handy. You want to be able to look through this hole. Roll a second, smaller joint to fit in this hole evenly and cut both sides for air passage. Place this small joint in the larger one. Ensure that the holes of the second joint match the mouth piece so that the smoke can travel from the ends of the joint to your lips. Secure and seal this intersection with sticky tape that you have cut from other rolling papers. Puff, puff, pass!
  1. The Deep Space Diamond Doobie– Roll one big hooter with a filter. Then, cut this joint with sharp scissors evenly in to two joints. Roll two additional joints that are thinner. Do not put filters in these and use less weed towards the middle of each joint so that later you can bend them. Cut ten sticky strips from papers and set them aside to use in a few minutes. First, use the sticky strips to attach the two thinner joints to one of the half joints at a 45-degree angle. Use as many sticky strips as you need to secure the joints. Bend these two thin joints in to a diamond shape. Attach the two ends to the other joint with sticky strips until secure. Blast off!

Alphabet Aerobics : THC and CBD

Alphabet Aerobics: THC and CBD

Colorado Grow Company Deciphers What All the Letters Mean

There are two main cannabinoids in marijuana plants. First is THC , or tetrahydrocannabinol,  the psychoactive compound in cannabis that most people who partake are very familiar with. THC is what you are looking for if you are interested in the brain buzz.

CBD or cannabidiol is the lesser known partner in crime than THC, but is making waves in marijuana news. CBD’s do not have any mind bending properties just 100% therapeutic benefit. The absence of psychoactive properties make CBD ingestion perfect for children or elderly who want the health perks without any head effects. CBD’s are known to counteract anxiety, help with relaxation, are anti-inflammatory, and decrease pain and nausea.

Colorado Grow Company is your one stop shop for all things THC and CBD.  We always stock products that have perfect blends of both THC and CBD for your medicinal or recreational use. Current products include:

 

  • Super CBD Blueberry Chill Pills are 10mg THC with 100mg CBD per candy. According to the Growing Kitchen website, “These sweet little hard candies combine CBD’s phenomenally relaxing non-psychoactive properties with THC’s more cerebral effects. They are infused with our own farm grown cannabis high in CBD, a naturally occurring compound in cannabis renowned for its ability to relieve pain. We love it for use with pain management, inflammation, or insomnia.”
  • Black Cherry Chocolate CBD Bar have 50mg of THC and 50mg of CBD per bar. This delicious bar was named the “Best CBD Edible” by High Times in 2016.
  • Harlequin Strain is 3.19mg of THC and 7.51mg of CBD. From the strain experts at Leafly: “Harlequin is a 75/25sativa-dominant strain renowned for its reliable expression of CBD. A descendant of Colombian Gold, a Nepali indica, and Thai, and Swiss landrace strains, you can depend on Harlequin to provide clear-headed, alert sativa effects. Unlike most high-CBD strains, Harlequin almost always develops a CBD:THC ratio of 5:2, making this strain one of the most effective out there for treatment of pain and anxiety, as CBD counteracts THC’s paranoia while amplifying its painkilling properties. Flavors can range from earthy musk to sweet mango, but without a doubt, what draws crowds to Harlequin is its ability to relax without sedation, and to relieve without intoxication.”
  • Sweet CO2 Vape Cartridge This is .3ml of pure bliss with 19.7mg og THC and 53.4mg CBD. The description on their website, “100% Cannabis Oil – Sweet CO2 Cannabis Oil is locally produced here in Durango, CO. It is 100% CO2 extract, which is cleaner than any other extract method. Sweet CO2 Cannabis Oil cartridges are compatible with all other vape battery pens and come in Indica or Sativa.”

(1 serving is equivalent to 2 tsp)

Ingredients

Instructions
Place 1/2 ounce of ground marijuana flower with 1 pound of butter in a pan over very low heat. I prefer Kalona Super Natural brand organic butter because of the high fat content and it is sourced from happy, grass fed cows. Allow the butter and marijuana to continue to cook for 2 to 3 hours. You just want the mixture to slowly infuse. Your butter should not simmer or boil at any time. Strain into a small container – I like to use cheesecloth and a strainer. Then refrigerate until your canna butter is hardened. You can store in your freezer or fridge. Perfect for any favorite recipe that calls for butter. Perfect in baking, spreading on toast or for melting and dipping. Bon appetit!

Types of Edibles in Durango COCanna Cooking Oil

Ingredients
2 cups of vegetable oil (such as coconut, olive or sunflower oil)

1 cup of ground Colorado Grow Company marijuana flower

Instructions
Add the ground leaves or flower to the oil in a small pan and heat it up. Again, you want to just heat the mixture slowly so that it infuses. No frying or boiling here. Allow the butter and marijuana to continue to cook for 2 to 3 hours. Let it cool and then strain the oil. It can be used for any recipe that calls for cooking oil such as marinades, salad dressing, or baking.

Canna milk or cream

Yield 2 cups Canna Milk/Cream or about 48 servings 
(1 serving is equivalent to 2 tsp)
