Vaporizers: Why (and How) You Should Use One

As much as we here at Sespe enjoy the experience of smoking, we concede that inhaling burning plant matter may be less than healthy for the lungs, and is not necessarily the most efficient way to medicate. Vaporizers can be costly, yes, but a good vaporizer has the potential to pay for itself in the short term by helping you get more out of your medicine, and in the longer term through better respiratory health.  As a bonus, vaporizers reduce or eliminate smoking odors, making it easier to be discreet. Vaporization involves heating plant materials until the active components boil into a vapor. Nothing burns, so there is no smoke, and virtually no tar or particulate matter. Vape users experience less coughing and phlegm, and often report a better, more cerebral high. The absence of […]

The Price of Gas is Too Damn High

We here at Sespe sincerely care about all our patients and regret that we are forced to make a small change in our minimum delivery amount due to the ongoing ridiculousness of gas prices. We can maintain the $40 minimum for Oxnard, Ventura, and Camarillo, but outside of those areas it is necessary to have a slightly higher minimum. Effective 4/19/2012, minimum orders are: Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo: $40 Ojai, Oak View, Oak Park, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Fillmore, Santa Paula and beyond in Ventura Co: $50 […]

Sespe Creek Featured Medicine: Ground Owl Pain Lotions

One of the reasons that marijuana is such an effective medicine for so many ailments is that our bodies have elaborate receptor systems for the active ingredients. For that reason, it makes sense to take a multi-faceted approach to medicating, and the Ground Owl line of topicals is very popular among our patients. The lotions are thick, fragrant, and come in two types: Calming Lavendar, and Invigorating Peppermint. Created and mixed up by hand by Sepse Member/Volunteer PeuYoko, these topicals are a treat at any time of the day or night, especially refreshing for those with dry, cracked skin. I’ve found they help heal small abrasions, as well as improve the general skin tone with regular use (I’m 51 and need all the help I can get with that!). […]

Hemp Wick Offers a Safer Alternative for Smokers

Sespe Creek Collective proudly carries Humboldt Wick, a 100% organic alternative to butane, matches, and naptha-based (Zippo) lighters, all of which carry their own health risks. Medical research has found that butane exhaust inhalation can cause drowsiness (narcosis), asphyxia, cardiac arrhrythmia, and even dull the senses of smell and taste. Humboldt Wick is all-natural hemp-based twine coated with beeswax, which burns so clean it’s approved by the American Lung Association. Recent studies have shown that moderate marijuana usage is not harmful to the lungs, so by adding the health benefits of cleaner-burning ignition soruces you have the comfort of knowing that you’re not adding anything harmful to your meds. Ask for a free sample with your next order! […]

Medical Cannabis in a Pill

Many doctors recommend using edibles and vaporizers over smoking our medicine, and for those of us who suffer from respiratory illness, this is a very important part of being able to enjoy the benefits of medical marijuana without unpleasant side effects to our breathing. As an asthmatic, I find that marijuana’s anti-inflammatory effects help my breathing in a substantial and noticeable way, and edibles are the best way to accomplish this — but as much fun as Fruity Marshmallow squares or fancy truffles are, sometimes you just want to medicate without any sort of hassle whatsoever, and that’s where caninol pills just shine. They’re small, convenient, portable, and most of all, effective.  My experience with them is that one in the morning gets the day off to a great start, […]
