Herpes, also known as the herps, the dreaded god smack, the love bumps, and the Jersey shore special is an all too common disease that unfortunately has no cure. Even though the virus that causes herpes in humans is mainly thought of as a sexually transmitted disease, it can still be passed from person to person within your smoking circle quite easily even without more intimate types of contact. When you think about it, most of us don’t even think twice about sharing a joint, bowl, bong or vaporizer with fellow enthusiasts even though we are basically passing our germs back and forth between each other. With the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimating that by 2018 nearly half of Americans between fourteen and forty nine will be host to the virus, it can be a bit of a concern to most marijuana users.
However this doesn’t necessarily mean the end of social marijuana use. With marijuana legalization spreading like wildfire around the country, more and more innovative entrepreneurs are creating different types of marijuana products that can help with this situation. Check out these creative products for the cannabis enthusiast who wants to avoid any potential risk of contracting this unpleasant disease.
Toast – For The Smokers
Toast is a cannabis cigarette built for the germaphobe. The company devised these fancy low-THC joints to mimic the experience one might have while sipping on a cocktail. Its Original Slices and Gold Pack contain a 2:1 and 4:1 CBD:THC ratio, which provides the user with around 4-6 percent THC per cigarette. Toast is an “all-natural, mildly potent, 100% Cannabis cigarette,” according to company’s website. “While a Slice is designed to be consumed entirely by you, share your pack with friends for a social experience.”
Keef – For The Drinkers
In the same way that members of civil society do not share their beers with others, Keef Brands has taken this concept to cannabis. The company has a variety of THC-infused soda’s and flavored sparkling water. Each beverage contains 10mg of of the intoxicating compound, so they are perfect for moderating a buzz, sip by sip, without getting too stoned, too fast. It is also the low dose of these concoctions that prevents party leeches and deadbeat friends from gaining any benefit whatsoever by stealing a swig when you’re not looking. Of course, we advise never leaving a drink unattended.
