Before normalization of cannabis use can happen, we must first plant the seeds of change.
This 4|20 season, Dixie Elixirs and the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) want to bring the community of cannabis together. “Pot & Prejudice” is a new campaign and video series that plans to change the perception of cannabis consumers through education, advocacy and giving back to the Marijuana Policy Project, the largest organization behind cannabis policy reform in the United States.
The “Pot & Prejudice” video series hopes to inform the public about the harmful effects of marijuana prohibition and pushes for activism to change the law so that cannabis can be seen without prejudice.
In Colorado and California, if you buy a Limited Edition 100MG Wildberry Lemonade Elixir at participating dispensaries, Dixie will donate $5 dollars to the MPP. For every crate of Wildberry sold Dixie is donating another $15. Not only are you helping educate yourself so you can educate others, you’re also giving back to a strong voice that fights prejudice for the cannabis community.
Buy a Limited Edition 100MG Wildberry Lemonade Elixir at a participating dispensary in CA or CO, and Dixie will donate real dollars to MPP while you enjoy your tasty cannabis freedom.
Give a Damn by sharing the video & taking a stand against #PotandPrejudice
Love and Marij is elevating the cannabis experience even further by using parties and pot to fight prejudice. They’re also giving inspiration for 4|20 parties, 4|20 weddings, dates and beyond. Invite your friends to your Lemonade Soiree, A 4|20 Garden Party, or even a legalization celebration!
Celebrate spring by grabbing a crate of Wildberry Lemonades and hosting a party with one of Love and Marij’s Pinterest Wildberry Party Boards. Invite all your friends; even the ones that don’t love to burn down and dare to use “Pot & Prejudice” to create a dialogue about normalization and to help fight outdated stereotypes.
Set up some healthy munchies, brings some varieties of edibles, concentrates, and then talk — really talk — about how cannabis has been a positive influence in your life. Or maybe how it made you nervous to use at first. It doesn’t have to be scripted but those philosophical thoughts tend to bloom when the smell of bud is in the air.
Be real; if using cannabis hasn’t always been a good experience, then definitely share to help promote responsible, educated consumption. Maybe someone has felt the same and can relate to your experience. It helps anyone engaged become more informed and the ripple effect begins.
Then share your Pot & Prejudice experiences on social media using the following hashtags:
So much has been learned from the legalization of the recreational marijuana markets in Colorado and Washington. One major point learned is that no matter what a person’s level of experience is with marijuana edibles and beverages, it is impossible to go back once too much has been consumed. Although, overindulging in ingestible cannabis will not result in death, it can result in extremely unpleasant feelings of disorientation, anxiety, paranoia, and nausea.
Colorado’s most popular edibles manufacturer, Dixie Elixirs and Edibles, released a new line of single serving THC-infused beverages to the Centennial State’s recreational market in an effort to help combat accidental overindulgence for tourists and residents alike.
This 1 ounce shooter, containing 10 active milligrams of THC, is ideal for both novice and experienced users who want to get the job done without having to consume a lot to get there. Dixie’s Boosted products contain ingredients that allow for sublingual absorption before gastrointestinal absorption, which promotes a quicker onset of effects. Users are encouraged to swish these products in the mouth for up to 30 seconds before swallowing to increase the rate of absorption. This information and more is explained below in the How Dixie Boosted Works section.
The Lift Dixie Boosted Citrus Acai Drink tastes similar to pomegranate lemonade with a sweet finish of citrus fruit. It is packaged in a small, sleek, and portable bottle that is discrete enough to fit in your pocket. Plus, the cap is replaceable, so it could be split into two servings if desired. All nutritional and ingredient information is provided in a clear and concise manner. The expected wait time and milligrams of active THC are also clearly marked and prominent to even the briefest of glances.
The warnings of quick onset of effects should be taken seriously. I drank the entire one ounce bottle before walking to the grocery store, and I began to feel subtle effects before I was through the checkout line (about 25 minutes). For me, the full effects settled in after about an hour, but it could take up to two hours for some consumers.
How Dixie Boosted Works
Research has indicated that Quercetin, Resveratol and D-Riobos, three ingredients in the Dixie Boosted Citrus Acai Drink, increase absorption into fatty tissues because they increase metabolism. When the body’s metabolism increases, the cellular uptake also increases, which accelerates the onset of effects felt from THC consumption. This means that consumers can expect to feel the effects from Lift Boosted Citrus Acai Drink more quickly than with most other forms of ingestible marijuana products.
As the label states, “Lift is Dixie Boosted with a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that enable your cells to absorb THC more quickly. This means a more pronounce ramp-up effect and a faster onset of euphoria. Due to the ingredients in Lift the effects of THC contained are enhanced, meaning that although it is technically an appropriate dose for a novice user, the rapid onset may not make it the most ideal option for the first time.”
