Ruth Epstein, Partner at BGP Advisors, Recommends Favorite Cannabis Products
My favorites are the tinctures from Care By Design (CBD.org). I am a big fan of 1:1 for relaxing or to help me sleep. I give my octogenarian dad the 18:1, which gives him the benefit of terrific pain management without any high from the THC. I also like Select CBD(SelectCBD.com) pens, particularly the Lavender Relax blend.
I really like Papa & Barkley’s (PapaAndBarkley.com) Releaf Balm for more generalized muscular pain, and Mary’s Medicinals (MarysMedicinals.com) transdermal patches for localized pain or injuries.
Vapes are my delivery mechanism of choice. I love Moxie (moxie710.com) live-resin cartridges, which they make in my favorite strain, Strawberry Banana. Moxie’s commitment to purity and quality is very important to me. I also am a big fan of ABX (ABX.org) distillate cartridges, which are smooth and come in a huge variety of strains and flavors, including my favorites, Jack Herer and Blue Dream. Eden Extracts (EdenExtracts.com) also makes very pure and heavy-hitting cartridges.
I am a fan of Hepburns (Hepburns.com) petites. They pack a potent punch, and they come in a rockin’ purple tin with groovy artwork.
I love Satori (SatoriChocolates.com) chocolates, especially their milk-chocolate-covered strawberries and their CBD-rich salted caramel almonds with dark chocolate. Yum! And they are micro-dosed at 5mg, so you can enjoy them and stay coherent.
In the Bay Area, Harvest (HarvestShop.com) is my go-to. The hospitality background of the founders is very much in evidence in the way they treat their customers. I love that their products are physically on display and can be examined without having to ask a budtender. In SoCal, I am a MedMen (MedMen.com) girl. I love the Barney’s vibe, the glamour, and the red logo.
Next Big Thing
I think Grasshopper Kiosks (GrasshopperKiosks.com) vending machines for dispensaries are going to revolutionize the way we buy cannabis. They will make it faster and easier to get accurate information and to complete a purchase without waiting in line.
