The Endocannabinoid System: Designed for Consuming Cannabis?

The Endocannabinoid System: Designed for Consuming Cannabis?

The endocannabinoid system helps cannabis produce therapeutic and psychoactive effects in people. Is this because our bodies are hardwired to consume cannabis? Naturally, cannabinoids are the active chemical compounds in the cannabis plant.

The human endocannabinoid system is a major system that works to help maintain homeostasis within the body. Homeostasis is the body’s natural ability to maintain balance, and the functions necessary for life.

The ECS plays an important role in a number of physiological functions. Subsequently influencing the central and peripheral nervous systems, and peripheral organs.

Evidence states that all vertebrate species have an endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids and metabolic enzymes are the three main parts.

Endocannabinoid Receptors

The two main cannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2 receptors. Mainly, CB1 receptors are in several brain regions. They are also in lower levels throughout the body. These receptors are responsible for mediating the psychoactive effects of THC. CB2 receptors are in immune cells, seen throughout the body.

Endocannabinoids

First on our list: Endocannabinoids. These molecules that bind to and activate the body’s cannabinoid receptors. The body synthesizes endocannabinoids the same way it synthesizes cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Surprisingly, endocannabinoids are occur naturally within the body. The two main endocannabinoids are anandamide and 2-AG.

Metabolic Enzymes

Broadly, metabolic enzymes maintain & repair all body organs & tissues. Metabolic enzymes in the ECS break down endocannabinoids after their use.

Emerging Research

Emerging cannabinoid research is modulating the activity of the ECS. This may present effective therapeutic treatment options for a wide range of diseases and conditions. This includes mood disorders, spasticity, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, cancer, glaucoma, osteoporosis and more.

The endocannabinoid system plays such a large role in promoting homeostasis within the body. Thus, cannabinoid-based treatments may hold tremendous promise for certain patients. Cannabis presents an option to those with diseases and conditions that don’t respond well to traditional treatments. Ultimately, a growing number of preclinical studies and clinical trials are underway. They are already uncovering novel therapeutic approaches for such cannabinoid-based treatments.

The Clear’s Secret to Amazing Natural Flavors

The Clear’s Secret to Amazing Natural Flavors

If you love The Clear, odds are, it’s because of our flavors. Let’s talk terpenes…and other magical molecules that plants produce.

We’ve already shared with you the secrets behind The Clear™s cultivation and extraction techniques, yielding the purest concentrate on the market. But, what happens once we’ve made our ultra-clean, golden extract? How does our obsession with quality impact the array of luscious flavors our discerning customers seek out?

To bring our true-to-life flavors into The Clear, we use naturally-derived terpenes and flavonoids. Our advanced vape hardware then elevates taste to the next level.

Bring Out the Funk, and the Fruity Flavors Too

Terpenes are what give cannabis strains their singular flavors and fragrances. They can be found throughout the plant kingdom. Terpenes are immediately identifiable scents and flavors found in tart lemons, icy mint, savory thyme, spicy pepper and many more herbs, spices and fruits.

Flavonoids give fruits and vegetables their bright colors. Both types of compounds have been shown to have health benefits.

So far, scientists have discovered more than 200 terpenes and over 20 flavonoids in cannabis plants alone. Broadly ranging from classic skunky scents to sweet, fruity notes.

Many other companies inject synthetic terpenes into their extracts. However, our award-winning flavors come from natural plant sources, not a factory. Just as our extraction process distills our oil to its purest form, our terpene and flavonoid extraction process also draws out the best, most concentrated form of natural flavor.  

As a result, the delectable flavors are true to the strains and fruits they are drawn from. Everyone’s taste buds are different, so we’ve created a dozen fruit flavors to please every palate, as well as five special flavors that pay tribute to some of the most popular cannabis strains around.

Our award-winning concentrate array starts with the cannabis flavor line. Running the gamut from sweet-and-piney XJ-13, to pungently sour, salty and sweet OG, peppery Golden Goat, the citrus-minded Lemon Haze (also available in Clear™ CBD) and the terpene-free neutral Lobster Butter.

Tantalizing fruit flavors:

The list goes on! (* = also featured in our Clear CBD lineup):

  • Juicy Potent Pineapple*
  • Ripe, sweet Blueberry*
  • Tangy, sweet Lime Sorbet and Lemon Lime*
  • Bright, rich Orange Cream*
  • Juicy, soda-inspired Grapevine
  • Super-ripe and deep Strawberry*
  • Balanced, smooth Banana Cream, and
  • Complex and satisfying Strawberry Banana.

The Clear Enters Into a New Market

The Clear Enters Into a New Market

Nevada, The Clear has landed!

Cannabis concentrate cartridge markets grew by $150 million in the US between 2016 and 2017. The Clear has a strong, proven product concept, and a strategy curated over time. Naturally, our distillate products entered the market in Nevada. Note, cannabis products are for adults 21 and over. Keep out of reach of children!

We relish the following 2018 press release from Cannabis Dispensary Magazine. It states, “with a product launch in Nevada and more to come, The Clear™ is growing nationally – quickly.”

Since our debut in the Nevada market in 2018, we have to say we love our Nevada #ClearFam.

Dab Strain Review: The Clear Concentrate

Dab Strain Review: The Clear Concentrate

The following article contains a review of our concentrate “honey buckets” when they first hit the California cannabis market in 2014.

We no longer sell our honey buckets as of 2021. However, we do use the same clear, solventless distillate concentrate in all of our vape products available today.

The Clear is in the Press

It is an honor to be mentioned by Cannabis Now. They have been reporting on relevant cannabis trends and news for eleven years!

At the time this article was posted, the reporter was not a regular concentrate consumer. Rather, they were a flower consumer. After trying and reviewing our product, they encourage their readers over 21 in legal states to “put aside your prejudices… and try this revolutionary new product.”

There’s a lot that we love about this honorable mention. For instance, the journalist is so honest. He admits that he’s a minimalist with high-brow preferences. This applies to his chocolate, his coffee, and yes, his cannabis. He prefers the simple things to be above-average, and we get that. Being someone who doesn’t consume concentrate, the journalist changed his mind:

“With a single, strategic hit I could thoroughly medicate myself with little of the typical fuss and most importantly, none of the stinging in my lungs or sharp fits of coughing that the typical solvent concentrate delivers. On a nail or in a pen, the Clear is sweet and rich without being overwhelming. The flavors are clear and defined, lingering pleasantly on ones’ palate after consumption. At this point, I’ve tried quite a few of them and can say without hesitation that there’s not a single variety that doesn’t sing as well in my bloodstream as the next… I love them all.”

The Clear Concentrates Syringe. The first and original distillate. For dabbing!
If you’d like to try dabbing The Clear these days, you’ll want to find one of our syringes!
