In traditional Eastern medicine, cannabis has long been used to improve overall health as well as to treat common ailments.
As we look for ways to cope with illnesses like COVID-19, iterations of flu, and other known illnesses, we may be able to leverage the best of Eastern and Western medicine to live our healthiest lives.

Abundant in healthy fats and Omega oils, the avocado has become one of the most sought after fruits by those who are looking for a way to supplement their nutritional intake and improve their health.
One benefit that is often discussed is the detoxifying benefits of avocado oil. High in chlorophyll and magnesium, avocado oil aids the body in processing the many toxins that we ingest on a daily basis. The body processes these toxins and the magnesium and chlorophyll work together to get rid of anything that may be harmful to the body.
Without getting too technical, avocado oil has specific organic compounds called, “pro-inflammatory cytokine molecules”. This is really just a fancy way of saying that in the same way that avocado oil works to reduce blood pressure, it also allows for more blood flow to help decrease inflammation and has been shown, in some cases, to curb bone degeneration and help reduce arthritic symptoms.
Throughout this blog, we have touched on this topic, but avocado oil is truly like the HOV lane for other nutrients to be absorbed into your body. The fatty acids break down and allow for all of the nutrients like Vitamin E, Magnesium, and Potassium to be easily absorbed once ingested, or absorbed through the skin.

Given COVID-19, many states are starting to classify cannabis companies as essential resources for medicine. For many, this means that they can still access cannabis from dispensaries and delivery services. In California, many dispensaries are leaning on delivery services and curbside pickups. While not every dispensary is offering this type of no contact pick up, we see this trend starting to take hold. Be sure to reach out to your favorite dispensaries to learn about how they are managing COVID-19.
Now that you have your cannabis and are looking to avoid eating all of your quarantine snacks, be sure to check out what local restaurants are offering delivery or pick-up. While all of our favorite chain restaurants are still offering delivery, but take a moment and see which of your local restaurants are offering delivery directly or through apps like Postmates, Grubhub, Doordash, or Seamless. Many of these local businesses face a very real problem and may have to shut their doors for the unforeseen future. Any opportunity to help your local businesses will help to keep your money in the local community and go to good use.
