Cannabis Reports Gets a Big Shout-Out from Developers Who Build with Our Open API

Late last May, Josh Pardee and Kelly Martin of CannaFo.com and DaKine420 sat down for an interview with Time4Hemp. While the entire hour-long discussion is fantastic, the Cannabis Reports team was humbled by an amazing shout-out to our team, our platform, and our mission.

We take great pride in supporting the developer community, and have helped hundreds of individuals and dev teams since we opened up our API in June of 2015.

It was evident early on that Mr. Pardee and the CannaFo team were committed to building an exceptional tool to disperse cannabis information, and their project is getting a lot of wonderful attention.

If you are unfamiliar with CannaFo, you should definitely take a minute to explore the information throughout their site. CannaFo lists top quality strains, products, and cannabis services in an easy-to-use format, and also serves as an encyclopedia and marketplace.

Since both of our teams have spent a good amount of time bonding together over open technology, Cannabis Reports could not be happier to see such a successful application like CannaFo making solid use of the data we offer through our open API.

Transcription of Time4Hemp Interview Shout-Out [49:00]

[Kelly]: And I would like to make one shout-out, because these guys were very, very helpful in sharing their data, and that’s Cannabis Reports. They allowed us to actually use a bunch of their data that they have been compiling for a number of years, and they share it. They are big advocates, they want the information out there, they want to help people, and just a great group of people. I thank them very much for them helping us with our project too…

[Josh]: Yeah, for all those developers out there, when Leafly shut down their developer options, Cannabis Reports has definitely got their hands on quite a bit more data. They are more like me and Kelly are, they are really trying to take this information and they want to see things like CannaFo branch off of that, or cool app ideas, and they are out there to definitely help you get access to information like CannaFo is, and build your own projects and put back into the cannabis community, and that’s wonderful, so definitely check them out.

The Cannabis Reports team is happy to help any and all developers build off of our open API. Please each out to us through our Contact Page to request an API key. For the most up to date info on Cannabis Reports, follow us on Twitter, and like us on our Facebook page.

Recipe: Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric CBD Tonic

This article was originally published by the editorial team at GetSava.com.

Based on the Ayurvedic recipe for “Golden Milk”, this tea combines turmeric, ginger, coconut oil, honey, and CBD to provide relief from inflammation, arthritis, sore muscles, hangover, and a range of other maladies.

Turmeric has long been used in South Asia for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

On the Japanese island of Okinawa – where the population has one of the longest average lifespans – turmeric tea is a staple of daily life. In India, turmeric was first used in food and was then discovered to have a range of medicinal benefits – antiseptic, anti-inflammatory detoxifying.

It has also been shown to prevent and reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s,[1] and is currently being studied for its anti-cancer effects.

curcumin

Curcumin, the ingredient in turmeric that makes it yellow and gives it spice, is what science attributes many of its healing properties. In order for your body to absorb the curcumin, it is paired with both a fat and with black pepper.

black-pepper

Piperine, a compound found in black pepper, has been shown to increase the bioavailability of otherwise hard to absorb curcumin by 2000%.[2] Without the piperine, curcumin is metabolized in the liver and intestinal wall. When I make this tonic, I either add in or leave out black pepper based on how I feel.

If I want my liver and intestinal wall to receive the benefits – maybe after a large rich meal or one too many glasses of wine – I leave the pepper out.

If I want relief from joint or muscle pain or want my entire body to reap the effects, I add pepper in. Fat also assist with absorption,[3] hence coconut oil which has its own host of benefits.

Ginger-Root-Benefits

Ginger, another powerful root with a big reputation, has been shown time and time again to have strong anti-inflammatory properties without the side effects of pharmaceuticals[4] as well as anti-oxidative and anti-cancer effects.[5], It has also long been used to soothe the digestive system.

cbd

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is an important medicinal cannabinoid that produces no “high.” CBD relieves pain and anxiety, and research has shown it to have antibacterial, anti-convulsive, anti-carcinogenic, anxiolytic, antidepressant, analgesic, antiemetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-ischemic, antispasmodic, antipsychotic, anti-insomnia and neuroprotection properties.

Mix all of this together with a spoonful of honey and you have a delicious health tonic that can be used for specific ailments or as an everyday preventative medicine.

Ingredients

  • ½ to 1 inch of turmeric root (or a tsp of turmeric powder)
  • ½ to 1 inch of ginger root
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup of your favorite milk (almond or hemp is delicious!)
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Sprinkle of black pepper
  • Drops of high CBD tincture

How-To

Warm the milk. Add all other ingredients to a blender. Combine in your favorite mug and enjoy!

Alternately, all ingredients can be blended together cool and served over ice.

This can be made in a larger batch and store in your refrigerator for several days or you can combine all ingredients, aside from milk and water, into a paste that you keep for up to a week adding to hot water and milk when you want a cup. Adjust the honey, pepper, ginger, and turmeric depending on your flavor preferences – whether you like things spicy or sweet – and drink to good health.

Since our first article announcing Drake’s involvement in the Entrepreneur Summit, many of our readers have asked about the topic he has chosen to discuss. Drake’s insights into the cannabis industry have resonated with the community, which was especially evident during his keynote speech at the SF Seed Series event in March 2016.

For those who missed the Seed Series/Direct Cannabis Network presentation, you can view the video below, or on the Cannabis Reports Youtube channel. Drake discusses a future of cannabis business that is based on openness, transparency, and responsibility.

Keeping in stride with that sentiment, Drake agreed to give us all a preview of his upcoming speech for the Green Flower Entrepreneur Summit.

David Drake: Founder and CEO of Cannabis Reports

“Businesses operating in cannabis have to get around tons of different obstacles, and they don’t have a whole lot of resources available to learn about best practices for technology.

I want to provide information so that businesses feel like they have a checklist to implement solid technological practices into their company’s operations.

I will be going through everything from setting up a secure website to establishing complex internal tracking tools, and lots of other points in between.

It is incredibly important for our industry that we build good technology, and be careful to maintain trust by never exposing personal information.”
