Holidays giving you stress?!  Try these High-Vibe Spiced Persimmon Cookies to add some serious chill to your festivities.  Cannabidiol (CBD), is the major nonpsychoactive component of Cannabis sativa (marijuana plant).  

I purchased my bottle of The Daily Hit, CDB oil from Cap Beauty in Fred Segal on Sunset Blvd. Unfortunately, it seems Cap Beauty has this product currently backordered online.  So your next best bet to source CBD would be to personally speak with a local dispensary about a high-quality culinary CBD oil, or I’ve heard good things about HempMeds from their review by E...

Sometimes you just want "old man ice cream" as my sister dubbed it.  Rum raisin, butter pecan, pistachio... these flavors commonly ordered by old men named Marty would have totally grossed us out as a little kids.  Yet somehow their complex balance of dried fruits, warm spices, and aged liquors call out to me now as I grow further and further away from bubblegum, and closer and closer towards Neapolitan in the ice cream circle of life.  Let's be honest people, there's straight booze in this ice cream, and what self-actualized adult doesn't need a kick of aged rum in every bite?  Plus the addition...
