Learn More About The Avitas Cannabis Brand

For Pride Month, Avitas partnered with Equal Rights Washington and Basic Rights Oregon, organizations that battle for the rights of the LGBTQ community in the Pacific Northwest. A portion of profits from their pride-themed strain, Unicorn Glitter, will be donated to both of these organizations at the end of Pride Month. 

“It feels good to do good isn’t just a slogan for us. We’re always on the hunt for ways to put even just a little bit of tangible goodness into the world.”

Avitas is truly putting their money where their mouth is when they talking about a conscious cannabis company. They’re a pioneer in the recreational industry for their safety standards and obsession over quality. This obsession hasn’t gone unnoticed, as they’ve been featured in Dope Magazine, Culture Magazine, NW Leaf, Ganjapreneur, High Times, and Cannabis Business Times. RMR is excited to announce Avitas is a featured sponsor for our Hoopfest 502 VIP Party. 

Avitas wants their brand to stretch beyond just providing cannabis to people. They built their company with ingrained values of donating their profits and time to causes and the community. They donate profits to charity, and partner with several local food banks to supply the disenfranchised with groceries.

Avitas is widely known for their vaporizer cartridges (vape carts), but they offer the full gamut of cannabis products: flower, pull and snap, rosin, pax pods, flower, pre-rolls, pre-filled cartridges and cartridge refills. All of their products are pesticide and additive free.

Avitas’ vape carts are among the absolute best the industry has to offer. Their one-gram glass pre-filled cartridges have safe, high-quality oil and one of the smoothest draws in the Pacific Northwest. These things truly rip and I can personally say the hype is real. During my short time in retail we couldn’t keep their glass cartridges on the shelf, and now I see why.

Avitas continues to stay on the cutting edge of vaporizer technology by creating Pax Pods for the Pax Era vaporizer. Pax Era is one of the newest vape devices to be introduced to the market. It’s one of the most discreet devices on the market, easily sliding in and out of even the smallest pockets.

All of their cannabis oil is extracted with CO2, which makes it solvent free. CO2 is one of the most common gasses in our atmosphere, you’re breathing it in right now. All of their cannabis oil is crafted in small batches with single strains. Their full spectrum extraction methods ensure high amounts of cannabinoids and terpenes are present.  Knowing Avitas’ oil is solvent free when it hits your lungs adds another level of peace of mind when you’re using their products.

Avitas color coordinates their packaging based on sativa (red), hybrid (green), Indica (purple), and CBD (blue). These newer customers pick products when they’re unfamiliar with strains or terpenes. Sativa’s are for the daytime cannabis users, indica’s are made for those looking to relax after work, and hybrid’s are made for those looking to cut it loose at the club.  CBD cartridges contain little to no THC and are designed for people looking for the medicinal benefits of cannabidiol and don’t want to get high.

Avitas updates their blog regularly with the company’s latest happenings. There you can find product announcements, employee features, cannabis science blogs and more. The details don’t fall through the cracks at Avitas. Customers love what they do and they love making customers happy. Currently, on their blog, you can find a break down of their Pride Month charity partners, an interview with their Washington General Manager, terpene education and why Avitas takes pesticide testing so seriously.

Learn More About Myrcene, One Of The Most Commonly Found Terpenes

Consumer-based cannabis knowledge has greatly changed since the introduction of terpenes to the common stoner. Terpenes have only been common in the cannabis lexicon for four or five years and the information around the natural oils is exploding. Many brands list terpene percentages and terpene profiles on their packaging to educate customers about the chemicals that make a cannabis experience tick, terpenes. Myrcene is the most commonly found terpene in cannabis plants and has a wide array of characteristics.

Terpenes aren’t only found in cannabis, they’re present in all kinds of plants. Myrcene is a terpene cannabis shares with other plants such as hops, lemon-grass, basil, and mangos. Myrcene is named from a plant in Brazil named Myrcia sphaerocarpa, per sciencedirect.com. This terpene has been shown in scientific studies to have numerous medicinal effects, as well as varying effects depending on the dosage.

Through studies conducted on mice, heavy doses of myrcene resulted in strong sedative effects while light doses gave the mice an energetic/tonic effect. Sometimes these results do correlate with cannabis strains. Many indica strains like 9lb Hammer are known for putting users down and it contains high amounts of myrcene. Myrcene has gained the nickname “the couch-lock” terpene.

Myrcene is commonly associated with mangos for several reasons. Mangos contain high amounts of myrcene, but even before terpenes were commonplace in the stoner lexicon, there was an urban-legend about eating a mango to increase you high. Well, science may lend some information to back this up. One of the most important characteristics myrcene possesses is increasing transdermal absorption. Meaning, myrcene potentially helps cannabinoids like THC cross the blood-brain barrier, making the bioavailability of the psychoactive chemicals in cannabis much higher. This lends a lot of credence to eating a mango to enhance the effects of your cannabis high.

Myrcene is characterized as having either tropical and fruity aromas to something that is more spicy, closer to cloves. Myrcene features a wide spectrum of flavors and effects which make it one of the most interesting terpenes that are commonly found in cannabis.
