Foggy Daze Delivery Service https://foggydazedelivery.com Order (415) 200-7451 Tue, 12 Sep 2017 15:36:59 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Farm Update! https://foggydazedelivery.com/farm-update/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/farm-update/#respond Tue, 18 Jul 2017 19:53:36 +0000 https://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2755 Hey Foggy Dazers!

Evrett, your faithful C.E.O, here with an exciting report from our farm!

You may not be aware of this but Foggy Daze Delivery is a true collective. We only bring you the flowers that we grow ourselves. Most, if not all, other services buy and sell cannabis from many sources, some of which may be dubious in nature. This can lead to the ingestion of unwanted toxins along with the THC and other cannabinoids you are seeking.

With Foggy Daze you can rest assured that your flowers have been grown, processed and delivered by the same small, local company. Those very same flowers that were grown only 90 minutes away in the warm Santa Cruz Mountain sunshine, fed with strictly Organic Materials Review Institute approved ingredients and raised up using bio-dynamic methods. We feed the soil and the soil feeds the plants. These are hand-crafted, boutique-grade medical flowers grown with love.

The huge rains this winter led to a later-than-normal start which means we have been eeking along, using up last years flowers, which, due to our special secret dry/cure methods, are still very fresh, delicious and potent.

However, we are SO excited to announce that the first harvest of the season has occurred and thefirst wave is drying as we speak! If you listen closely you can hear the sound of the harvest fairies’ snippers snipping away. You can expect some freshly trimmed nuggets in about two weeks time or less.

Upcoming strains (we grew 23 strains in the first round):

Indica

Grandaddy Purple, Thin Mint GSC, Purple Cadillac, Candyland, Bubble Gum

Sativa

Blood Orange Tangie, Power Plant, Chem4, Boss OG, Allen Wrench, Gorilla Glue

Hybrid

THC Bomb (Ev’s personal favorite to smoke), Cake, Frosting, Sunset Sherbet, Peachy Romulan

If you ever have strain requests or if you want to give feedback about the flowers, or anything about the delivery service you may always email evrett@foggydazedelivery.com

We really enjoy bringing these farm-direct flowers, along with our other menu selections, to your door with a friendly smile. It helps us enormously any time you choose to share your opinions about us on Yelp!, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Weedmaps.

Have an amazing day!

Evrett

CEO Foggy Daze Delivery Service

New Product Announcement: Little Green Bee https://foggydazedelivery.com/new-product-announcement-little-green-bee/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/new-product-announcement-little-green-bee/#respond Wed, 05 Jul 2017 19:05:14 +0000 https://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2739 Little Green Bee, founded by a woman chemist and botanist, is our newest provider of high quality cannabis topicals. All of their products are hand-made in small batches and use the synergy of organic cannabis and other healing herbs to create Medicated Massage Oil for your aches and pains and two wonderful skin care products, Cannabis Eye Cream and High CBD Facial Serum, which work to fight the signs of premature aging of the skin such as oxidative damage from pollutants and the sun. Little Green Bee’s topicals are more concentrated than most on the market, and they aren’t overly perfumed. They are lightly scented with organic essential oils, which are also chosen for their healing properties.

 

The science is slowly revealing that the active components of the cannabis plant, cannabinoids such as THC, THCA and CBD, are not only excellent topical pain relievers but their healing properties are extremely beneficial to the skin. Our skin is full of both cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2 in the keratinocytes, sebocytes, hair follicles and sensory neurons. Here they act in the regulation of the homeostasis of the skin, keeping it healthy and beautiful. As an anti-inflammatory, cannabis can provide relief for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis and paired with its strong antioxidant capability, its use as an anti-aging beauty treatment is apparent.  Cannabis added to your skin care regimen can help keep the skin smooth and supple and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

New Product Announcement: Alchemy Cartridges https://foggydazedelivery.com/new-product-announcement-alchemy-cartridges/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/new-product-announcement-alchemy-cartridges/#respond Tue, 20 Jun 2017 21:43:26 +0000 https://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2731 Have you tried the new Alchemy cartridges yet? We are super excited to have them on the menu because their cannabis oil is paired with specific natural ingredients to create a pleasant sensory experience while giving you the perfect buzz.

Each cartridge contains 30% THC, which may seem a bit low in comparison to the other options on our menu. However, the Alchemy cartridges are designed to give you a mellow high– something you can “sip on” all day without crashing. They work with all 510-thread vape pens (the universal battery).

For those interested in aromatherapy and herbalism, these cartridges deliver a lovely infusion of botanical extracts in four blends: Awaken, Inspire, Relax and Explore. The extra plant terpenes work to enhance the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis. Try the lavender and chamomile mix for ultimate relaxation, or the rose and jasmine formula, which aims to make you feel confident and sexy.

The Importance of Organic Cannabis https://foggydazedelivery.com/the-importance-of-organic-cannabis/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/the-importance-of-organic-cannabis/#respond Mon, 12 Jun 2017 23:51:16 +0000 https://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2720 “Organic’’ seems to be an increasingly popular word, as many people become aware of the importance of what we are consuming and where it is coming from. More farm-to-table restaurants are sprouting up around the globe and enjoying success as chefs insist every aspect of their meals benefits from local, sustainable and organic growing; not only are colors and tastes enhanced for consumers, but they can also eat assured knowing they’re not ingesting chemicals, nor harming our environment.

 

For those of us who are curious or concerned about our health (and that of the environment), eating organic produce is an obvious practice. Farmers, nutritionists, scientists and experts believe organic foods and farming are the best choice to make when available. When we think about what we’re putting into our bodies, it includes more than what we purchase at grocery stores and while dining out… it’s time to learn about and discuss the benefits of organic cannabis.

 

The methods of growing cannabis plants are not much different than those of other crops and therefore it’s important to understand the process and what, if anything, is added to the soil or plant before it is inside your body. Organic farming uses absolutely no pesticides or chemicals in the soil or on the plant; it relies on the natural resources of clean water, sunshine and compost fertilizer. A significant point to note, regarding cannabis flowers, is that many of the chemical agents used in inorganic practices turn into carcinogens when they are heated (read: smoked) — this means you are getting “high” off of the chemicals and pesticides and not actually the natural THC component of the plant. For those who consider THC percentage to be an important factor when choosing a cannabis product, it’s impossible to ignore the role pesticides play in terms of intoxicating effects. In addition to carcinogens created and consumed by smoking, those same chemicals digested in your body are equally harmful.

 

If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, it might be safe to assume you are also a fan of Planet Earth. Organic farming is not only the safe and favorable option for your body, but also for the environment! Many of the chemicals and pesticides used in inorganic farming are contributing to the disappearance of a variety of bees, which we depend on for producing honey and beeswax, and most importantly for natural pollination of flowers, trees and produce. Moreover, the use of chemicals undoubtedly sinks into the soil and causes impurity in future crops and the poisoning of insects and animals that feed nearby. Pesticides may also cause long term damage to the land and may permeate proximate irrigation systems and water sources.

 

While it must be stated that there are no regulations in the cannabis industry as to what exactly qualifies as true organic farming, Foggy Daze Delivery is proud to report all of our flowers are grown outdoors, using 100% natural sunshine and no artificial lighting, and with absolutely zero chemicals, pesticides, or unnatural substances added to the soil or on the plants. We believe wholeheartedly that organic farming is the best way to farm and consume cannabis, for our patients and for our environment, and we are dedicated to our leadership role in the community!

Indica vs. Sativa: What’s the Difference, Anyway? https://foggydazedelivery.com/indica-to-sativa/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/indica-to-sativa/#respond Sun, 06 Mar 2016 20:53:08 +0000 http://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2590 On the Foggy Daze menu, you’ll notice percentages that indicate the ratio of indica to sativa for each individual strain. Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa are the most common subspecies in the cannabis genus. Crosses between these two varieties are what produce the majority of cannabis cultivated and available for medical use.

Although we talk about cannabis in terms of being indica and sativa, most strains are not purely one or the other, but rather a hybrid of the two plants that have been crossed, (often sativa-dominant or indica-dominant.) Some strains, however, are 100%. Common indicas include Purple Platinum Kush, Candyland, Northern Lights, and Grape Ape. Popular strains of sativa flowers include Blue Dream, Jack Herer, Sour Diesel and Super Silver Haze.

Origins

Cannabis actually originated in Asia, but prehistoric evidence of the cannabis has also been found throughout Africa. Sativa plants are said to have originally come from India, and also naturally inhabit areas in Thailand, Mexico, Jamaica and other mid-latitude climates. Indica plants find their earliest origins out of Afghanistan and are found today in Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet and other higher-latitude regions.

Growth and Stature

Sativas grow taller and thinner in comparison to the shorter, wider stature of indicas. Although there are certainly exceptions, indicas tend to produce a higher yield of flowers than do sativas. Another key difference is in their respective growth time. Indicas have a drastically shorter flowering time than that of sativas.

Effects

We like to tell our patients that there is more to strain selection than the simple idea of sativa as “daytime medicine” and indica as “nighttime medicine,” however, indica strains are generally noted for their well-known sedative effects, often described as “couch lock.” Overall, indicas tend to be more analgesic, stress-relieving and relaxing. In comparison, sativas are described as being more cerebral, often with an energizing effect.

How to Obtain a Medical Marijuana Card in California https://foggydazedelivery.com/how-to-obtain-a-medical-marijuana-card-in-california/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/how-to-obtain-a-medical-marijuana-card-in-california/#respond Fri, 12 Feb 2016 19:19:43 +0000 http://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2584

Cannabis dispensaries and medical marijuana licenses have become more and more commonplace in California in recent years. Because recreational use of marijuana is not yet legal in the state of California like it is in Colorado, only those who have medical marijuana licenses can buy cannabis legally in the Golden State.

The California Department of Public Health’s Medical Marijuana Program created the Medical Marijuana ID Card (MMIC.) It helps officers and other enforcement officials recognize individuals carrying the card as legal medical marijuana patients who are able to possess and use cannabis. It also allows you to purchase medical marijuana from local shops and delivery services.

In order to know whether or not you are eligible for a MMIC, you first need to discuss it with a doctor (either your Primary Care Physician or a recognized Medical Marijuana Doctor.) If your doctor has diagnosed you with a medical condition, including but not limited to ailments such as epilepsy, cancer, migraines, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic pain, you can take the next steps towards getting a doctor’s recommendation for a MMIC. A comprehensive list of illnesses treated by marijuana can be found by clicking here. (Please note, however, that there are still plenty of other issues outside of this list that cannabis can be effective against.)

Here are the simple steps to obtaining a Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC):

In order to actually obtain a medical marijuana recommendation, you will need to visit your doctor, as previously mentioned. If you would like to visit with a doctor via video chat through an official online recommendation program, please click here. If you’d prefer to meet in person, a quick search on Google or Yelp should equip you with a list of local MMJ Doctors in your area. Most of these offices take walk-ins, but it’s advisable to call in advance and make an appointment. The majority of these offices do charge a fee for the consultation and MMIC, and many are cash only so don’t forget to bring money and your ID! If you only have an out of state ID, you should also bring proof of residency, such as a bill with your name and home address.

In this appointment, you will visit with a doctor to go over your medical conditions and discuss whether or not marijuana will be a good fit for you. The consultation can take anywhere from five minutes to an hour, depending on your individual discussion.

If your doctor does recommend medical marijuana for you, the next step is easy! You’ll immediately receive an official document to show your eligibility for the medical marijuana program and you’ll also have the option of purchasing a photo ID card. Although the letter itself will suffice, we recommend getting the card so you can always carry it with you in your wallet for convenience in purchasing cannabis products from a dispensary or delivery service. It’s also important to keep the card or letter on your person in case you need to show proof of your MMIC to a police officer or other authority figure.

The MMIC is valid for one year, after which you’ll need to get the license renewed by going through a similar application process.

If you have any specific questions about obtaining a medical marijuana recommendation, you can contact the doctor offices in your county or visit your state Department of Public Health website. You can also give us a call if you have questions about the process in San Francisco and we will do our best to help you out!

Cannabis Consumption: The Least You Should Know https://foggydazedelivery.com/cannabis-consumption-the-least-you-should-know/ https://foggydazedelivery.com/cannabis-consumption-the-least-you-should-know/#respond Mon, 25 Jan 2016 18:39:32 +0000 http://foggydazedelivery.com/?p=2565

From flowers to concentrates, edibles to tinctures, the variety of available products provides quite a few options when it comes to how you choose to consume cannabis. When you inhale from a vaporizer, eat a “magic brownie”, or place a drop of tincture under your tongue, the therapeutic compounds of cannabis are absorbed differently in your system, before reaching your cannabinoid receptors. Simply put, each different method of consumption will produce different effects and experiences.

There are three ways to consume cannabis: inhalation, oral ingestion and sublingual absorption. Each method produces different results and each is accompanied by its own variety of benefits and occasional drawbacks. Besides differences concerning health and safety, each method of consumption will vary in onset, intensity and duration of what’s commonly known as “the high”.

Understanding the various methods of consumption and their different effects allows us to make more informed decisions regarding our personal needs.

Inhalation (Smoking)

smokingGood ol’ fashioned smoking is the method most commonly associated with cannabis consumption. When you inhale marijuana smoke, the various compounds enter your lungs and move through your bloodstream toward your cannabinoid receptors. Effects can be felt within minutes and the typical duration lasts about two hours. Smoking provides an easily controlled and fast-acting form of using marijuana flowers (and some concentrates.)

Although considered safer than tobacco, smoking cannabis can still produce negative effects on the lungs and respiratory system. Foggy Daze provides high-quality, organic cannabis– so you never have to worry about having pesticides, herbicides, fungucides, etc. enter your system from our product!

Onset: Almost immediate

Peak: 10 to 30 minutes after inhalation

Duration: About 2 hours*

Inhalation (Vaping)

vapingBy now, you’ve definitely heard of vaping– but if you’re still scratching your head and wondering what this new craze is all about, you’re definitely not alone. Vaporization provides the same quick-acting and generally tractable benefits of standard smoking, while minimizing some of the negative effects previously mentioned.

Vaporizing cannabis is done by using a low heat source– as opposed to the high heat of fire, which we use when we light up a joint or a bowl. This helps to extract the cannabinoids from the flower without the unnecessary inhalation of excess chlorophyll and plant matter. In comparison to smoking, vaporization is often considered more efficient and effective than smoking.

Recent research has indicated that vaporizing cannabis may be a healthier alternative to smoking marijuana. With the amount of technology currently on the market, there is certainly no shortage of options when it comes to vaporizer tools; for specific questions about the options that we offer at Foggy Daze, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We will be more than happy to go through the details of the different pens and cartridges on our menu.

Onset: Almost immediate

Peak: 10 to 30 minutes after inhalation

Duration: About 2 hours*

Oral Ingestion

ediblesThe oral ingestion of cannabis– absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract through the liver and then into the bloodstream– produces a longer and reportedly more sedative effect than other forms of marijuana use. When ingested, the active compound, THC, is converted into 11-hydroxy-THC, which is more powerful and has stronger pain-relieving properties.

Most often, cannabis will be combined with good or drink to create what we commonly refer to as “edibles.” It seems that many patients in the medical marijuana community have scary stories about a time they went overboard with edibles and are thus wary about giving them another shot– and for good reason– oral ingestion provides a longer and stronger high; personal dosage can be tricky because it takes much more time to feel the full potential of an edible. Our advice: start small! You can always eat more, but you can’t eat less. An average dose is usually between 5 – 20mg, so make sure to check the package labels before eating medical marijuana treats!

Onset: 30 minutes to 2 hours

Peak: 2 hours after ingestion

Duration: 4 to 10 hours*

Sublingual Absorption

tincturesThe oral consumption of cannabis is most often associated with ingesting edibles; however, alcohol- and glycerin-based tinctures offer another smoke-free technique for use of marijuana.

Tincture drops placed and held underneath the tongue provide a way to imbibe the medicine more quickly than edible consumption and more discreetly than smoking. Tinctures are typically categorized by THC and CBD content. For more information about the difference between these compounds and the different tinctures we offer for each, please don’t hesitate to ask! We love helping our patients find the right medicine.

Onset: About 20 minutes

Peak: 30 minutes

Duration: 2 hours*

*Onset, peak and duration will vary for each individual patient. These projections are estimates, based on average experiences and public data.
