Anti-Inflammatory Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles
At Humboldt Apothecary, the herbalists take the guesswork out of medicating with cannabis. Using CO2 oil rendered from sun-grown, organic flowers farmed in Humboldt County, the company offers a line of herbal tinctures designed to alleviate conditions ranging from anxiety to inflammation. Most of the tinctures are crafted in a blend of organic honey and grain-free alcohol, which means the organic compounds in cannabis are released directly into the bloodstream. This is a significant benefit over the guesswork sometimes involved in consuming edibles. Knowing that many of their customers are first-time cannabis consumers, Humboldt Apothecary tests all of their products for exact cannabinoid content. The THC and CBD levels of each tincture are printed on each bottle, and even formulated per dropper.
As the laws governing cannabis continue to shift under our feet in California, the female business partners behind Humboldt Apothecary look forward to sharing their healing tinctures with larger audiences. Though the tinctures can be used recreationally, Humboldt Apothecary gets much more excited talking about plant synergy in action and “keeping love and vibrancy in their products.”
Featuring turmeric and black pepper, the Inflammation Soother is packed with the spicy, verdant flavor of honey, spice and cannabis. Formulated to nourish our immune system and combat inflammatory imbalances, the Inflammation Soother blended seamlessly into our Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles, a healthy summa’time treat for grown-up boys and girls.
