4/20 Wellness

Wellness and self-care are currently at the forefront of everyone’s mind. COVID-19 has many people reaching for different modalities as they navigate this challenging time. A time where feeling ‘well’ seems harder to come by in all corners of life.

Luckily wellness is a benefit that the cannabis industry has been offering for years. Since half the industry exists medically, to begin with, wellness comes naturally to the following brands. With the rise of CBD’s endless uses, the contribution of cannabis reaches far beyond just THC. At Tinnie & Smalls, we thought it would be beneficial to shed light on some of our clients that offer wellness through their products which may be helpful during these uncertain times.

Magic Buzz

If you’ve ever sipped an energy shot to jump-start your day or a cup of chamomile tea to wind down at night, then you get the idea behind Magic Buzz. They started as a coffee company in Colorado and as soon as cannabis became legal, they saw an opportunity to pursue their passion for wellness, community and outdoor activity. The shots provide THC, Hemp, and CBD that aid in relieving stress or promoting sleep and energy. You can order the CBD products straight from the website and find everything else in the major Colorado dispensaries.

Ascent Extracts was started for a very personal reason, a friend was fighting cancer but was denied access to the proven relief of cannabis. So, they developed a supercritical fluid technology that produced a cannabis distillate that was incredibly clean and pure. It’s the kind of natural medicine that would finally bring people consistent help with the pain. You can find this beautiful box and fine product at L’Eagle dispensary at 3rd & Quivas in Denver.
