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.

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.

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, […]
