Word of Mouth With Custom Rolling Papers

A group of friends sitting in a circle, chatting about their day….

This is their time for relaxing, getting rid of the worries of their day. Many will pull out their book of rolling papers and strike up a conversation about many different things. People with families talking about the latest vacation; A movie recently watched that was really enjoyed. Maybe even a story about their favorite shop, dispensary, or seed company.

Your company or business should be a topic of their conversation, with our help your custom designs can package your choice of rolling papers easily displayed on any counter. Free custom display boxes on orders over 1500 will show off your logo vibrantly.

Carrying different options in your store will show you are understanding of the different tastes your customers will have. We have both sizing options and also paper content options. Our very own blend was created for this reason. Our 50% Hemp and 50% flax pulp is organic and unbleached.

Design Tips for Your Custom Product Packaging

Make your design simple and concise

  • Less is more. The most appealing designs are usually quite minimalist.
  • With multiple packaging sizes, you need to contemplate whether your design will look appealing with all sizes. (different rolling paper sizes, as well as the individual packaging, and the display box)
  • Come up with a list of brand benefits – how does your brand help to sell your potential buyer. Don’t confuse a benefit with a feature! A feature describes an attribute of your brand, where a benefit tells a buyer what it will do for them.
    • Benefit – “Only Place around that does [cite a unique value] !”
    • Feature – “Located Right Next to [unique value to your location]. Come Find Us!”
  • Short, concise points make for the most effective product presentation. Rework sentences and points until they flow well with very few words.
  • Make sure your graphics and pictures support your points.
    • 3rd Party accolades
  • Possibly add a barcode to ease scanning and create a professionally created look

Segregate information

  • Put contact information on the back or inside flap of the packaging. (We recommend the inside flap)
  • Use vibrant colors to make your logo pop more
  • Think about using a quip or one-liner on the back of the package that will stick in your customer’s mind
    • Don’t Panic, Always bring a Towel, etc.

Tips For Adding Visual Spice

Use Custom Patterns

  • Patterns will stick in customers minds more than a generic graphic and can also influence how your customers see your brand
  • Maintaining Symmetry throughout your design can register your design subconsciously .

Consider Color Scheme

  • In marketing, colors have long garnered different emotions. When you consider color schemes while designing your custom rolling papers, think about what you want your design to say.
  • Here are some believed attached emotions to specific colors
    • Red implies energy, danger, passion, aggression, warmth, or heat. It has also been found to stimulate appetite, which is why restaurants and fast food chains use it.
    • Orange implies youthfulness, innovation, and forward-thinking.
    • Yellow implies sunny, warm, and friendly. It has also been shown to stimulate appetite.
    • Green implies freshness and growth, while it is also used substantially by the financial industry.
    • Blue has become synonymous with professionalism, integrity, authority, and calm. For this reason, many corporate and government logos utilize this color.
    • Purple throughout history has been tied to luxury and royalty
    • Brown has a masculine connotation and has been used in many outdoor or rural life designs.
    • Pink, with its feminine connotations, can be flirty or fun. It is generally not used unless you are specifically targeting females.

Consider Multiple Designs

  • Don’t stick with only one design option
  • Some businesses have created an overall brand motif that utilizes different aspects of that design depending on the packaging.
    • Using the same font and colors across all custom rolling papers packaging while varying graphics, accolades, and other information on different packaging.
  • Ask as many people, that you trust, as you can about what they think of the packaging. Feedback is precious!
    • Remember what you think is good isn’t necessarily what your customers think is good.

Redesigns of Existing Brands Can Increase Sales

You only have about 3 seconds to capture a customer’s attention while they are browsing. Too often, a company’s brand can become diluted, or fade out and become white noise compared to a newer, different brand.

      • Make sure to review how your brand is being perceived every few years
        • Maybe new competitors have started since your last design and you have too many similarities with each other that customers don’t recognize you as being unique
        • Maybe industry standards have changed and you want to display them on your packaging
        • Whatever the case, you shouldn’t feel like your design ever needs to be consistent throughout the years your business is open.

Information You Need Before the Design Process

  • Pictures and Graphics need to be 300 dpi
    • Most Internet images are usually much lower
  • Colors
    • CMYK values or Pantone Matching Values (PMS)
  • Fonts and Specific usage information
    • Fonts that you own, weight, or kerning (adjustments of the space between letters)
  • Logo
    • Make sure you have the correct format. Or if you can have a vector file ready.

walgreens rolling papers

Lessons from a toilet paper expert

As panic-buying increased, toilet paper was one of the first supplies to go. But why? Walgreens’ category manager of paper goods explains.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a lot about personal hygiene: how to wash your hands thoroughly while singing two rounds of “Happy Birthday.” How just thinking about not touching your face can bring on a sudden itch. And how toilet paper is worth its weight in gold.

The threat of coronavirus and the possibility of being quarantined inside for weeks or months has caused people around the world to behave differently. But they all have one thing in common: panic-buying toilet paper. The behavior has left many wondering – why toilet paper? Will we run out? And what happens if we do?

Walgreens News was determined to get to the bottom of it.

So we turned to Keith Loeffler, category manager of paper goods – our resident toilet paper expert – for his take on panic-buying, why customers rushed to toilet paper and how Walgreens is responding to the sudden demand. Here are nine things he’s learned so far:

  1. Panic-buying begets panic-buying. “It began on the West Coast. People were posting photos of empty shelves in California on social media, and it sent a panic throughout the country that spread like wildfire. People started thinking that eventually their local retailers would also be empty, and they rushed out to buy what they could. And that’s when the panic-buying really picked up nationally. Eventually, even the people who knew this behavior was irrational were hit with the fear of missing out, and so they stocked up, too. At the height of it, Walgreens’ paper goods category had three weeks of inventory sell in just three days.”
  2. Running out of toilet paper is a psychological fear. “It’s hard to explain, and I’m not sure anybody has a good reason for it, but I have to believe that psychologically, running out of toilet paper is just a fear people have in the back of their minds. Right or wrong, that fear is pretty strong, so it’s become high on the list of essentials customers are panic-buying. And now we’re at the point where people are just buying toilet paper any time they see it on a shelf, even if they don’t need it, because they haven’t seen a full paper department in so long.”
  3. People were more worried about running out of toilet paper than food. “It’s been unbelievable to see the panic-buying evolve. It started with gloves and masks, then moved to disinfecting products (another category I manage), then paper goods and then food. Surprisingly, one of the last ones to pick up was alcohol. It was crazy to see the surge on toilet paper happen in between disinfecting products and food – toilet paper was before food. And from what we’ve heard from our suppliers, the exact same thing happened in Italy, France and other countries where the outbreak occurred before ours did. So it’s not a U.S. thing – it’s a human thing.”
  4. Buying habits are changing. “Customers are now savvy enough to ask our stores when the next delivery truck will arrive, and we see people show up early that day in anticipation of the new goods coming in. They wait around near the back of the store until team members bring the items from the truck onto the floor. Sometimes customers take product right off the carts and buy it before it even makes it to the shelf.”

  1. Customers have limited options, so they’re trying new things. “Anything will do in an emergency, which means there’s no debating over one-ply or two, soft or strong, owned or national brand. And that can be a good thing. Walgreens has two owned brands of toilet paper, Complete Home and Big Roll, and this is a unique opportunity for our owned brands to gain traction. For a customer who hasn’t been willing to try one of our owned brands in the past, if it’s the only item on shelf, they’re going to try it because it’s there – and we expect they’ll be impressed with the quality.”
  2. We have to think differently in order to catch up. “The biggest key to success so far has been having daily calls with our top suppliers to talk through how inventory is getting out of their facilities and into our distribution centers, share new market observations, and brainstorm ways we can work together to close the existing and future supply-and-demand gap. In addition to thinking differently about distribution, we’re asking our suppliers to think differently about the way they manufacture – producing fewer variations of toilet paper, for example, and increasing production of certain types that are made most efficiently. We’ve also reviewed hundreds of potential suppliers that we’re not yet doing business with to see if we can source extra inventory.”
  3. We have to hold hands as an industry. “Whenever I’m talking to our suppliers about why we need inventory, I’m talking on behalf of the retail pharmacy industry as a whole. I think we have to be able to talk more broadly about what’s good for the customer, not just what’s good for Walgreens. There are immunizations and medications being developed right now to help fight COVID-19, and retail pharmacies are going to play an important role in the outcome of this whole situation. These are unusual times, but I think holding hands as an industry for the greater good of all is a really important part of the narrative right now.”
  4. The collaboration within Walgreens has never been better. “I’ve been with Walgreens almost 25 years, at the corporate headquarters for 18 years, and I’ve never seen the level of collaboration that we have right now. My team, like so many of our colleagues, has been under a ton of pressure, but they have responded exactly the way I knew they would. Stepping up, working tirelessly to get this thing right and finding new ways of doing things. Everybody is 100 percent focused on the exact same goal – getting product to our stores as quickly as possible – and I think it has made a tremendous difference in what we’ve been able to accomplish and how fast we’ve been able to accomplish it.”
  5. There’s enough toilet paper for everyone – but only if you buy what you need. “The world isn’t running out of toilet paper. There’s enough out there for everybody, but there won’t be if people are buying five, six, seven times what their family actually needs. Because of the scarcity complex that everyone has built up, I believe it’s going to be awhile before we return to a more normal state. We’ll probably see some items taper off, like paper towels, but things like hand sanitizer will continue to be in high demand. My advice is to think about your actual usage, and please buy in reasonable amounts.”

As panic-buying increased, toilet paper was one of the first supplies to go. But why? Walgreens’ category manager of paper goods explains.

CVS and Walgreens Ban an Issue of Rolling Stone

The chain stores CVS/Pharmacy and Walgreens said on Wednesday that they would not sell the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which features a cover photo that some critics and Massachusetts politicians say glamorizes the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

It was explicitly the cover image, a photo of Mr. Tsarnaev that he used online, which shows him with long hair and a trim mustache and in an Armani Exchange shirt — not the lengthy article inside — that has drawn criticism. Over the day, those objections gathered momentum, aided by social media.

Both CVS and Walgreens made their announcements on Twitter; their messages were passed on hundreds of times.

The cover of Rolling Stone has long been a sign for rock stars, celebrities and even politicians that they have arrived, and the sight of the bombing suspect receiving similar treatment has provoked strong reaction, especially from the Boston area.

By the afternoon, Mayor Thomas M. Menino had sent a letter to the publisher of Rolling Stone, Jann S. Wenner, objecting that the cover “rewards a terrorist with celebrity treatment.” And Gov. Deval L. Patrick of Massachusetts, responding to a question from reporters, said: “I haven’t read it, but I understand the substance of the article is not objectionable. It’s apparently pretty good reporting. But the cover is out of taste, I think.”

The bombings on April 15, which Mr. Tsarnaev is accused of carrying out with his brother, Tamerlan, killed three people and wounded more than 260 near the finish line of the race.

Mr. Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty to 30 federal charges contained in a sweeping terrorism indictment.

Another chain, Tedeschi Food Shops, which is based in New England, also said it would not carry the issue, dated Aug. 1, explaining on its Facebook page that while the company “supports the need to share the news with everyone,” it “cannot support actions that serve to glorify the evil actions of anyone.”

The magazine published a note atop the article that began: “Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families.” After defending the article, which was written by the investigative reporter Janet Reitman, as fitting the magazine’s tradition of serious journalism, the editors try to turn some of the criticism on its head.

“The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens,” they wrote.

Ms. Reitman reported the article over the last two months, Rolling Stone said, interviewing childhood and high school friends, teachers, neighbors and law enforcement officials. The result, the magazine says, is “a riveting and heartbreaking account of how a charming kid with a bright future became a monster.”

Ms. Reitman, who declined to comment when reached via e-mail, responded on Twitter before the full article was posted online, to a friend writing in support, “It’s kind of astonishing. No one has even read it yet!”

The cover image has drawn criticism that it glamorizes the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. ]]>

mangoes and marijuana

How mangoes can increase a cannabis high

If you are a person who smokes cannabis, you want to get the most out of your smoking experience. This means doing whatever it takes to increase the level of your high. There have been many theories over the years regarding what is the best way to go about doing this. These methods have varying levels of success.

However, one method that many people have had great results with involves an item that you can pick up at your local grocery store. We are talking about mangoes. Let’s take a look at how this common fruit has the ability to make your cannabis experience more enjoyable than you ever thought possible.

EAT A MANGO BEFORE YOU SMOKE CANNABIS FOR A BETTER HIGH

Mangoes are known for being a rich source of vitamin A. Along with being able to intensify a cannabis high, mangoes also have the ability to do something equally important. They can make it last longer. Mangoes have a wonderful fragrance that is caused by a chemical called myrcene and the terpenes which are located inside. These can also be found in cannabis and various other exotic plants. When a person eats a mango, the terpenes will go straight into the bloodstream. It does not matter if the person smokes cannabis before or after they eat a mango, the psychoactive ingredient THC will interact with the terpenes. Once this interaction begins to take place, the potency of the high the person experiences will be dramatically increased. The amount of time the person experiences this high will also last longer. However, the amount of time will vary from person to person.

While the THC in cannabis and the terpenes found in mangoes will increase the level of high a person experiences no matter when the mango is eaten, it has been shown that eating a mango before taking a hit is the most effective way to ensure the best and longest lasting high. Mangoes have also demonstrated the ability to be effective pain relievers. If you want to try the mango method for yourself, you should first check your own metabolism. If you have a metabolism that is slow, consume one mango roughly two hours prior to smoking your cannabis. If you have a fast metabolism, you should eat two or three mangoes to achieve the desired effect.

EAT MANGOES TO AVOID GETTING THE MUNCHIES

A single mango only has 130 calories, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. All cannabis users have experienced cravings for unhealthy junk foods that are loaded with fat. Instead of loading yourself up with garbage like potato chips to satisfy your cannabis cravings, eat a mango the next time you get a case of the munchies. It is good for you and it will help you to keep off the pounds. It should be noted that people who have a high tolerance for cannabis will experience a stronger and longer lasting high than those who do not.

CANNABIS USERS CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR WEIGHT

The binge eating commonly associated with smoking cannabis has caused many people to gain a large amount of weight. If you are trying to watch your weight, eating mangoes is a great alternative for people who are on a diet. They are a low glycemic index food that can help people to lose weight and regulate their level of blood sugar. Also, mangoes are made up of 82 percent water. Since they also contain 12 percent of a person’s recommended daily fiber intake, a person can feel full without consuming a large amount of calories.

MANGOES CAN DECREASE THE RISK OF CANCEROUS TUMOR

Elevating your cannabis high and helping you keep off the pounds are not the only advantages mangoes can offer. These fruits contain polyphenols that help to fight inflammation and lower blood sugar levels. In a study performed by Texas A&M University, the polyphenols in mangoes prevented an inflammatory response in breast cells that were cancerous. This means the growth of cancerous tumors and cells can be reduced.

If you are a person who smokes cannabis, you want to get the most out of your smoking experience. This means doing whatever it takes to increase the level of your high.

More Intense High When Combining Mangoes with Cannabis: Myth or Reality?

Can the widely available and so innocent-looking mango actually increase the effects of cannabis? Some sources suggest that a compound in mangoes can intensify the effects of THC. But how exactly does it do that? After a little bit of research, we discovered that it’s a little more complicated than you think!

There are many theories about how to intensify your cannabis high including hitting the gym before a session and taking a tolerance break. However, according to some exciting observations, it may be a lot easier to enjoy a longer lasting high than abstaining from weed for a while. The answer? Mangoes.

Yes, it sounded strange to us, too. But after a little bit of investigation, we found that the mango theory just might have some credibility. Mangoes contain a terpene also commonly found in cannabis that may significantly enhance the cannabis high, making it stronger and longer. In all fairness, the extent to which mangoes can have this effect is all just speculation. It probably varies from person to person. Let’s jump right in and see how this urban myth stacks up!

Mangoes, myrcene and the blood brain barrier (BBB)

Every time you pick up a mango and salivate over its sweet, delicious smell, you are reacting to the most prevalent terpene in mangoes: myrcene. Terpenes are almost always responsible for the aroma of a herb, fruit or vegetable. Even cannabis is packed with a variety of different terpenes. However, terpenes don’t just give off aromas. They cause a myriad of different physiological and psychological effects. Interestingly, terpenes are the active ingredients of essential oils, which are the grounding principle in which aromatherapy is based.

Mangoes have an extremely high concentration of myrcene, the same terpene that is responsible for intensifying the cannabis high. According to Neutraceuticals, myrcene supposedly does this by increasing the permeability of the blood brain barrier (BBB). The BBB is a protective mechanism of the brain, limiting the amount of intoxicants and foreign materials that can make their way to the brain.

By increasing the permeability of the BBB, myrcene allows THC to reach the brain faster, therefore making the effect more rapid and of course, more intense. Before you go running to the local grocery store, it’s worth mentioning that no hard data has been published thus far to support the claim that myrcene increases BBB permeability. While myrcene may have an effect in the way the brain and body process THC, the permeability of the BBB might not be the defining factor.

What does myrcene actually do?

The scientific enquiry into terpenes continues to increase, revealing a world of complexity behind these wonderful compounds. When it comes to myrcene and what it actually does, there seem to be 3 main hypotheses:

  1. To start with, Ethan Russo reported in his Handbook of Cannabis that one anonymous subject reported that THC mixed with myrcene produced stronger effects than without myrcene. It seems to be a common theme in scientific research, with myrcene medically yielding sedative like effects. With that being said, those observations were made on mice, and researchers don’t know if the sedative effect carries over onto humans.
  2. Another study showed that, in mice, myrcene produced anti-convulsant effects, supporting the sedative-like abilities of this terpene. This 2011 study might also offer an explanation of how myrcene might increase the THC high. The researchers were testing the effects of lemongrass essential oil, in which myrcene is a huge component. They found that the terpene’s effect on the GABAergic system produces anxiolytic effects (in mice, of course).
  3. Finally, one of the last suggestions for myrcene’s ability to intensify the cannabis high is that myrcene is a positive allosteric modulator of the human CB receptors. Simply put, the hypothesis means that myrcene might increase the activity of cannabinoid receptors. In March 2019, researchers discovered that in a simulated lab setting, myrcene does not directly activate the CB receptors. This doesn’t mean that the hypothesis is debunked, but that it has become a less likely explanation until more research has been done.

The most plausible explanation for mango theory is GABA

Let’s go back to Ethan Russo’s anonymous subject, who reported myrcene as an enhancer of the effect of THC. The subject described the enhanced effect as more “mellow” and “sleepy”, something like being couch-locked. Combined with the lemongrass research mentioned above, researchers attributed the relaxing effects of myrcene to its intersection with GABAergic systems.

GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter whose principle role is in keeping neuronal excitability under control. The more of this neurotransmitter that is floating around the brain, the more likely a person is to feel “relaxed” or “mellow”. What does this have to do with myrcene? Well, myrcene, along with pinene and linalool, enhance the activity of GABA. Now, at low doses and on their own, these terpenes probably have no significant effect. But the effect of these GABA enhancers is synergistic with the sleepy effect of THC. This is what may contribute to the couch-locked effect that users report when they consume mangoes in conjunction with THC.

In fact, the GABA system is the most plausible explanation for the mango-THC phenomenon. After all, THC’s effects are often mellow and somewhat sleepy. A person may experience those effects much more strongly with the additional synergistic effect of GABA enhancers such as myrcene. This means that if GABA truly is responsible for the intensified high, then the effect may not be limited to mangoes. Lavender is also a GABA enhancer, and its effects on a cannabis high could be well worth exploring as well.

Mangoes: A delicious, relaxing fruit

It may still be interesting for cannabis users to play around with combining cannabis and mangoes. Anecdotal reports, including those mentioned in Ethan Russo’s book, indicate that eating a fresh mango 60 to 90 minutes before smoking or vaporizing cannabis could lead to a stronger stoned effect. The metabolism of each individual may play a role in how strongly this effect is experienced, although for the time being, this has not been proven in a scientific setting.

The current evidence suggests that myrcene may not increase THC’s psychoactivity. Rather, it increases the sense of relaxation, mellowness or couch-lock. So in addition to being a delicious fruit, mangoes can increase the sense of relaxation that comes with your cannabis high. It can even be added to a cannabis smoothie to increase the effects. Plus, it’s a super healthy alternative to other munchies foods.

Unfortunately, most internet sources describe the mango effect in relation to the blood brain barrier, for which there is no solid scientific evidence to back it up. The more likely explanation is that myrcene affects the GABA system, working synergistically with THC for the couch-lock effect.

So next time you are wondering what to eat for dessert, choose a mango! Then, enjoy a nice long smoking session and bathe in the intensified feelings of couch-lock!
