Lots of things are changing about the California cannabis industry in 2018 & here at The Higher Path we're having to make some adjustments to our Loyalty Points & Rewards Systems.
Once we receive our recreational license we will no longer be able to give out free products of any kind to either medical patients or recreational consumers. We are legally required to do this based off of details in MCRSA:

As the clock strikes midnight on December 31, 2017, fireworks will celebrate the new year and will signal the dawn of a new era: cannabis legalization in California. With this newfound freedom, the people of Los Angeles will be scrambling to get their medicine, and tourists will be coming in droves to sample (arguably) the country’s best herbs. But consumption laws have left people few options as to where they can enjoy cannabis, leading to uncertainty regarding the tourism that will accompany legalization. Tourists can buy it, but can’t smoke it anywhere?
We all know that 2018 will be a year for the books — recreational marijuana sales go into effect and change the landscape of the Los Angeles cannabis scene forever. But the million dollar question heard ‘round LA is, “Do I still need a medical card?” and the answer is entirely contingent upon your needs and desires as a cannabis user.
The new wave of recreational marijuana sales in California is just around the corner and the buzz of excitement from non-medical marijuana card holders is palpable. Now to address a word that’s been flitting around the state since last year’s election: taxes. How much will they go up, who will be affected and how do you avoid paying astronomical amounts of money for your medicine?
In the age of Postmates and AmazonFresh, it’s no surprise that cannabis users often opt to have their greenery delivered right to their door—but is it legal? Not currently in Los Angeles. This might come as a huge shock to you, especially when you login to Weedmaps & see the bevy of delivery services listed, but cannabis delivery in Los Angeles is illegal.
It is a common misconception that the presence of a cannabis dispensary in your neighborhood is bad for the community—that crime will increase, that children will have greater access to cannabis and that said dispensary will decrease the value of the neighborhood as a whole. By preying on the fears of individuals who simply don’t know any better, law enforcement and politicians have perpetuated the false narrative that cannabis is synonymous with crime and negativity. While there are many illegal dispensaries in Los Angeles that unfortunately do fall into this category, there are also numerous law abiding dispensaries like The Higher Path who have made it their mission to exemplify just how positive of an impact a legal dispensary can have on the community it operates within.
January 2018 is almost here--are you prepared to navigate recreational cannabis in Los Angeles? With over 1,400 dispensaries throughout the city, it's been difficult for Angelenos to know exactly which places are legal and which aren't. That's where the United Cannabis Business Association (UCBA) comes in! They've created a campaign called Get L.E.G.A.L. to help cannabis enthusiasts throughout Los Angeles know for sure if the dispensary they're visiting is actually legal.
There are numerous ways to medicate with marijuana: vaping, dabbing, smoking and ingesting. Today I want to focus on the method of ingesting and the most popular way is by consuming edibles. The overall effects from edibles can vary from person to person and can result in a more intense, longer-lasting high than smoking. After consumption, it generally takes anywhere from 45-120 minutes for one to start feeling the effects. The Higher Path takes pride in its edible selection as we have a variety to choose from: hard candy, cookies, brownies, gummies, drinks, etc. As you continue reading this article you will learn more about the Top 5 edibles we carry.
You’re walking down the beauty aisle at Whole Foods when to your surprise, you spy a bottle of lotion that appears to have a cannabis leaf on it. Is this for real? Can you actually purchase cannabis beauty products from your local grocery or drug store? Sort of.
Does your vision of a perfect wedding involve taking a toke instead of raising a glass? You’re not alone!
