Canada's Cannabis Laws - How to Buy and Consume Legally Across the Country

Posted by Jennifer F. on

Canada became the first major country in the world to legalize and regulate recreational cannabis use in 2018. Canada allowed its provinces to more or less regulate the sale and consumption of cannabis in the country themselves. This is similar to how U.S. states do it, except it is currently federally illegal. 

Even though the laws in Canada are liberal when it comes to cannabis use, you still need to avoid treading on the toes of local law enforcement according to where you are. This article will set out the basic laws on cannabis purchase and consumption, province by province.

A 420 Holiday in Jamaica?

Posted by Anthony D on

Land of the Rastafari and paradise on Earth for the 420 enthusiast, Jamaica is a perfect holiday island for those who want to just chill! As with everywhere in the world where cannabis is legal, you can't just bust up a fat cone and chill in the street, as the local police may have a word. Let's look at cannabis laws in Jamaica and then make some suggestions as to what you could do with your Focus V CARTA e-rig in your day pack. Cannabis Laws in Jamaica Anyone over 18 can consume cannabis in Jamaica. Yes, that's younger than in any U.S. state where it is legal. You can also drink alcohol at 18 too, which is why you might find a few younger people getting a little over-excited on the rum cocktails! Two ounces of weed is a large amount to consume in a day, and that is the maximum you're allowed to possess at any one time. You can buy it at licensed dispensaries at a fair price. It should be noted that there is a large illicit trade in cannabis on the island, though the majority of the illegal stuff is for export. The climate is about as perfect for outdoor growing as you can get, so in your wanderings, you may run into a few gardens with nice herbs in them. Locals are allowed to grow it at home. Don't smoke weed in a public place, or within 20 or so feet of a public place, as you could be fined 500 Jamaican Dollars. This is exactly the same law for cigarettes, so it's something to bear in mind if you like tobacco as well. A public place includes hotels, bars, restaurants, and government offices. As ever, discretion is advised —if you smell it somewhere and people are relaxed about it being used, don't be anxious and enjoy it yourself. 

Three 420-friendly Things to Do in Jamaica The cannabis culture of Jamaica runs so deep, it's even part of the sacraments of the island's most famous religion, Rastafarianism. Here are three suggestions for 420-friendly trips you can do while on the Caribbean island. 1. The Pelican Bar The Pelican Bar is unique, as it's a bar on stilts in the sea. It's shallow enough that you can walk the five meters required to enjoy your pure Jamaican variety weed and a rum cocktail. Access is by boat, and from Jake's Resort, it's just a 20-minute boat ride. Don't forget your CARTA e-rig! 2. Watch Cliff Diving at Rick's Cafe Rick's Cafe in Negril is one of the best places to chill out and enjoy the sunset in Jamaica.

To add to the fun, locals and visitors alike love to dive off the 35-feet-high cliffs into the sea below. You may need a blast on a bustee before taking the leap yourself. Even if you're not in the mood to jump off a high cliff, it can be fun watching the experts and amateurs alike jumping with a rum cocktail in hand. 3. Visit Bob Marley's Home! In the parish of St Anne's, you will find the home of arguably the world's most famous Rastafari and reggae artist. This is an opportunity to see the real Jamaica close up and explore what made the great man tick. Enjoy the sweet-smelling air as you absorb yourself in the music and atmosphere. Don't Forget Your CARTA! Remember, your Focus V CARTA e-rig can be used for bud as well as concentrates, so you should bring it with you on any 420-friendly holiday. One of the machine's greatest assets is that it can give you the most flavorful hit, and when exploring the Jamaican varieties of cannabis, this can be a major asset.

Tips For Cleaning Your CARTA

Posted by Content Team on

With CARTA taking over the e-rig market there is one question on every CARTA owner's mind;

How do I keep my CARTA clean to get the most out of it? Well I am here to share my secret tips on how I kept my Magna CARTA and atomizers running smoothly for over a year!

DO NOT Take Big Dabs!

This is the biggest mistake most new e-rig users make. Overdoing it with the dab size can cause spill over into the heating plate and into the connections. Spill over onto the heating plate potentially causes build up and even worse, thermal shock. Which will burn it out.

Take Long and Soft Rips!

Hitting your CARTA hard, like ripping a bong or a pipe, is the second most common reason for spill over. Like stated in the previous tip, spill over can cause buildup and thermal shock. Both of which can burn out your atomizer. On top of that a hard draw can pull the spill over into the connection area. Blocking out airflow potentially causing misread errors or more severe damage.

Swabs are Your Cartas Best Friend!

High end cotton swabs, like the Focus V Cleaning Swabs should be an essential item to keep with your Carta. Consider them best friends, they should always be together. Swabbing out your quartz inserts or titanium inserts after each session is one of the best ways to ensure their and your atomizers longevity. Swabs easily fit into the tighter spots in the atomizer and down into the connection on the base. You will want to keep these areas free and clean of any residual material. Soaking your swabs in iso will help a lot but it is essential that you dry the area with the dry end of the swab before using the rig.

Keep Iso Wipes With You!

Good iso wipes are important items to keep with you Carta at all times. Iso wipes are perfect for cleaning all the threadings on the atomizer and the base. The more you use your CARTA you will notice these areas will gradually build up with residuals from your sessions. This can cause them to get stuck onto your rig and trying to forcefully unscrew or screw in these pieces can cause damage to the threading on the device. Not to mention they can get stuck which is frustrating. They are also perfect for cleaning the ceramic lid or any silicone part of the device.

Keep to a Maintenance or Cleaning Routine

This tip may seem pointless to most but keeping to a maintenance or a cleaning routine with your CARTA is the best way to ensure you ensure the longevity of your CARTA. This routine should include regularly soaking inserts, the atomizer lids, and bubbler in iso to clear all gunk and build up. If you keep to a routine of cleaning and following all the aforementioned tips you will be ripping your CARTA for quite some time to come.
