MADE OF ONLY NATURAL FOOD INGREDIENTS, R.Y. ORIGINALS CANNABIS VITAMINS ARE A LITERAL GODSEND. GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT CANNABIS VITAMINS? ASCLEPIUS, THE GREEK GOD OF MEDICINE WILL HELP WALK YOU THROUGH IT.

WELCOME TO A NEW PATH OF CONSUMING WHOLE PLANT CANNABIS, ACTIVATED WITHOUT EXTRACTION. THIS TRIP WILL BE A GENTLE ONE. ENJOY! YOU’RE RECEIVING NUTRIENTS THAT WILL SOOTHE AND LIVEN THE BODY, MIND, AND SOUL. WE WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND TALK TO YOUR MIND. THINK OF ME AS YOUR SHAMAN, GUIDING YOU ON THIS PATH TO WELLNESS.

THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS STUDIES AND PATENTS ON THE INGREDIENTS FOUND IN THESE PRODUCTS (R.Y. WANTS TO CONTRIBUTE AND ADVOCATE FOR EVEN MORE RESEARCH). NATURALLY, THESE PEER-REVIEWED STUDIES AND PATENTS WILL BE REFERENCED BUT REMEMBER:

THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE.

Will RY Vitamins Get Me High?

NO. THE R.Y. ORIGINALS’ CBD BLENDS SOLD ON THIS SITE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH THC TO INDUCE STRONG PSYCHOACTIVE EFFECTS. (BUT R.Y. DOES HAVE OTHER PRODUCTS AVAILABLE IN CALIFORNIA THAT DO GET YOU HIGH.)

EACH SERVING CONTAINS UP TO 2 MILLIGRAMS OF THC. SO YOU MAY FEEL MELLOW CHANGES IN YOUR MOOD, COGNITION, PERCEPTION, AND BEHAVIOR. BUT THAT IS THE INTENTION, BESIDES FEEDING YOUR CELLS THE MICRONUTRIENTS THEY NEED. IF YOU WANT THE HIGHER THC VERSIONS AND LIVE IN CALIFORNIA, SEARCH FOR RY VITAMINS ON WEEDMAPS FOR DELIVERY IN YOUR AREA.

THE EFFECTS OF THC DEPEND ON THE SIZE OF YOUR BODY, HOW YOU CONSUME IT (DIGESTED OR INHALED), HOW FREQUENTLY YOU CONSUME IT, AND HOW MANY CANNABINOID RECEPTORS ARE IN YOUR BODY. CONSUMPTION OF CANNABIS PRODUCTS CAN IMPAIR YOUR ABILITY TO DRIVE AND OPERATE MACHINERY, PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION.

Is This Legal Where I Live?

IF YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YES.

RY DOES NOT EXTRACT OR ISOLATE THC OR CBD. INSTEAD, THE CANNABIS PLANT’S FLOWERS, LEAVES, AND SEEDS ARE SIMPLY GROUND INTO A POWDER AND THEN BAKED AT A LICENSED MANUFACTURER’S TEXAS-COMPLIANT FACILITY. IN LEGAL TERMS, “MARIJUANA” IS THE TYPE OF CANNABIS PLANT THAT CONTAINS MORE THAN 0.3% THC AND “HEMP” IS THE DRIED PARTS OF THE CANNABIS PLANT THAT CONTAIN LESS THAN 0.3% THC.

HEMP AND CANNABIDIOL (CBD) PRODUCTS WERE REMOVED FROM THE FEDERAL CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE SCHEDULE BY THE AGRICULTURE IMPROVEMENT ACT OF 2018 AND THEREFORE, NO LONGER PROHIBITED FROM BEING SOLD AND SHIPPED ACROSS STATE LINES. MARIJUANA, ALTHOUGH MEDICALLY LEGAL IN 36 STATES AND RECREATIONALLY LEGAL IN 15, REMAINS A SCHEDULE I SUBSTANCE EVEN THOUGH THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES HAS A PATENT FOR IT TITLED “CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS.”

R.Y. TRIES TO HELP FOLKS RECOVER FROM THE FAILED WAR ON DRUGS. RY WILL CONTINUE TO ADVOCATE FOR MORE CANNABIS RESEARCH AND SMARTER DRUG POLICIES. THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS DONE DAMAGE TO COUNTLESS COMMUNITIES AND LIVES AND NON-VIOLENT DRUG OFFENSES LINGER WHEN TRYING TO FIND A DECENT JOB AND PLACE TO LIVE.

R.Y. DONATES TO AND HOPES YOU CAN BENEFIT FROM THE FOLLOWING NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS:

CODE FOR AMERICA IS A NONPROFIT AND NONPARTISAN ORGANIZATION THAT MAKES EXPUNGING DRUG OFFENSES EASY.

THE DRUG POLICY ALLIANCE IS A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION WORKING TO END THE WAR ON DRUGS AND PROMOTE NEW DRUG POLICIES GROUNDED IN SCIENCE, COMPASSION, HEALTH, AND HUMAN RIGHTS.

MARIJUANA POLICY PROJECT RAN MORE WINNING CAMPAIGNS THAN ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION (9 OF THE 15 RECREATIONAL STATES).

MULTIDISCIPLINARY ASSOCIATION FOR PSYCHEDELIC STUDIES IS A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT RESEARCH AND EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATION THAT DEVELOPS MEDICAL, LEGAL, AND CULTURAL CONTEXTS FOR PEOPLE TO BENEFIT FROM THE CAREFUL USES OF MARIJUANA.

FEEDING AMERICA PROVIDES OVER 4.3 BILLION MEALS ANNUALLY, HELPING 1 IN 7 AMERICANS FACING HUNGER LIVE MORE SECURE AND STABLE LIVES. R.Y. DONATES 1 MEAL FOR EVERY BOTTLE SOLD.

How Many Could I or Should I Take?

START BY TAKING HALF OF A SERVING (1 CAPSULE) WITH FOOD. WAIT 2 HOURS BEFORE TAKING MORE. THE AVERAGE DOSE FOR MOST PEOPLE IS ONE SERVING (2 CAPSULES).

THINK OF THEM AS VEGETABLES, JUST MORE ENJOYABLE. BUT KEEP IN MIND, THE MORE CAPSULES YOU TAKE AT ONE TIME, THE MORE CANNABIS YOU ARE CONSUMING. PLAN ACCORDINGLY. IF YOU WANT HIGHER LEVELS OF THC, WEEDMAPS CAN TELL YOU WHERE TO FIND R.Y.’S HIGHER DOSED VITAMINS. YOU CAN ALSO ASK YOUR LOCAL DISPENSARY IF THEY CARRY R.Y. CANNABIS VITAMINS.

DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 12 R.Y. VITAMIN CAPSULES DURING A 24 HOUR PERIOD. EVERY SERVING CONTAINS 600 IU (INTERNATIONAL UNITS) OF VITAMIN D WHICH IS 100% OF THE RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE. VITAMIN D2 IS NEEDED FOR NEW BONE AND MUSCLE TISSUE. BUT TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING CAN BE HARMFUL, 4000 IU IS THE UL (UPPER INTAKE LEVEL OR THE LARGEST DAILY INTAKE OF A NUTRIENT CONSIDERED SAFE FOR MOST PEOPLE. TAKING MORE THAN THE UL IS NOT RECOMMENDED AND MAY BE HARMFUL).

THE FDA HAS APPROVED CBD AS A MEDICINE. BASED ON INDIVIDUAL CLINICAL RESPONSE AND TOLERABILITY, EPIDIOLEX CAN BE INCREASED UP TO A MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE DOSAGE OF 10 MG/KG TWICE DAILY (20 MG/KG/DAY). MOST PEOPLE WEIGH BETWEEN 45-136KG, SO MOST PEOPLE CAN HAVE 900 TO 2700 MILLIGRAMS OF PURIFIED CANNABIDIOL (CBD) MADE FROM PLANTS EACH DAY. R.Y. IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH EPIDIOLEX, BUT THERE IS 15 TO 30 MG OF NATURALLY OCCURRING CBD (NOT PURIFIED CANNABIDIOL) IN EACH RY CAPSULE, AND 450 TO 900 MG OF NATURALLY OCCURRING CBD IN EACH BOTTLE. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION, ARE PREGNANT, LACTATING, TRYING TO CONCEIVE, UNDER THE AGE OF 18, OR TAKING MEDICATIONS, CONSULT YOUR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT. DO NOT START OR STOP OTHER MEDICINES WITHOUT TALKING TO YOUR DOCTOR. TELL YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT ALL THE MEDICINES YOU TAKE, INCLUDING PRESCRIPTION AND OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICINES, VITAMINS, HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS, AND CANNABIS-BASED PRODUCTS.

AS FAR AS THC GOES. THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE STUDIES ON THC TO LET SCIENCE ANSWER THIS. BUT MOST FOLKS SAY 1-5MG IS CONSIDERED A MICRODOSE. 5-10MG IS CONSIDERED A LOW DOSE. 10-20MG IS CONSIDERED A MODERATE DOSE. ANYTHING MORE THAN 20MG IS CONSIDERED A HIGH DOSE. THERE IS UP TO 30 MG OF THC IN EACH RY ORIGINALS BOTTLE, WITH ONLY 1-2 MG THC PER SERVING (BUT THERE IS 20 MG OF THC IN EACH R.Y. VOYAGER CAPSULE, JUST SAYIN).

Why RY Instead of Smoking or Edibles?

SMOKING IS A GREAT WAY TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF THC AND CBD ALMOST INSTANTANEOUSLY. BUT IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO ENTER MORE GENTLY INTO AN ELEVATED STATE OF BEING, R.Y.’S VITAMINS ARE THE BETTER OPTION. PLUS, YOU CAN GIVE THOSE VITAL LUNGS A BREAK WHILE ALSO FEEDING YOUR CELLS THE MICRONUTRIENTS THEY NEED.

CANDY AND DESSERTS ARE DELICIOUS, & THERE ARE PLENTY OF CONFECTIONERIES OUT THERE ADDING EXTRACTED THC AND CBD TO SUGAR. BUT THERE SHOULD ALSO BE OPTIONS THAT ARE FREE OF SUGAR, FAT, CARBS, SODIUM, AND CALORIES THAT ALSO CONTAIN NON-EXTRACTED THC & CBD. RY’S ONLY OTHER INGREDIENTS BESIDES BAKED CANNABIS POWDER ARE PURPOSEFUL VITAMINS, MINERALS, & HERBS. NO FILLERS OR SWEETENERS.

OTHER CANNABIS PRODUCTS USE CBD OR THC THAT HAS BEEN ISOLATED FROM THE PLANT’S NUTRIENTS AND OTHER CANNABINOIDS BY USING ENERGY-INTENSIVE MACHINES AND CHEMICALS. R.Y.’S CAPSULES CONTAIN THE PUREST FORM OF CANNABIS & ALL ITS NATURALLY OCCURRING MICRONUTRIENTS, CANNABINOIDS, & TERPENES THAT ALL WORK HAND IN HAND TO CONNECT WITH YOUR BODY’S CELLS AND ENDOCANNABINOID RECEPTORS.

IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT HOW HEMP IS MORE NUTRIENT DENSE THAN “SUPERFOODS” LIKE BROCCOLI, KALE, OR RASPBERRIES. THIS CHART CONTAINS INFORMATION TAKEN FROM THE USDA DATABASE.

OKAY IF YOU’VE MADE IT THIS FAR, TAKE A FEW DEEP BREATHS & IMAGINE YOURSELF IN A WARM, SOAPY BATH … ACTUALLY, TAKE A BREAK AND GO DRAW YOURSELF A BATH RIGHT NOW.

What in the Gods” Name is Cannabis?

CANNABIS IS A NATURAL PLANT THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR MOOD, COGNITION, PERCEPTION, AND BEHAVIOR WHEN CONSUMED.

CANNABIS SATIVA AND CANNABIS INDICA ARE THE LATIN SCIENTIFIC NAMES FOR WEED, MARIJUANA, POT, DEVIL’S LETTUCE, GRASS, GANGA, DOPE, HERB, REEFER, MARY JANE, BUD, FLOWER, NUGS, SKUNK, CHRONIC, 420, BLAZE, HEMP OR WHATEVER YOU’VE HEARD THIS PLANT CALLED.

LEGALLY SPEAKING, “MARIJUANA” IS THE TYPE OF CANNABIS PLANT THAT CONTAINS MORE THAN 0.3% THC AND “HEMP” IS THE DRIED PARTS OF THE CANNABIS PLANT THAT CONTAIN LESS THAN 0.3% THC. HEMP PRODUCTS WERE REMOVED FROM THE DEA’S CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE SCHEDULE BY THE AGRICULTURE IMPROVEMENT ACT OF 2018 & THEREFORE NO LONGER PROHIBITED FROM BEING SOLD AND SHIPPED ACROSS STATE LINES.

THIS WONDERFUL PLANT CONTAINS AT LEAST 144 PHYTOCANNABINOID COMPOUNDS THAT BIND TO THE G-PROTEIN RECEPTORS (GPCRS) CB1 & CB2 THROUGHOUT YOUR BODY. YOUR BODY MAKES CANNABINOIDS (ENDOCANNABINOIDS) THAT ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE ONES FOUND IN PLANTS (PHYTOCANNABINOIDS). YOUR BRAIN ACTUALLY CONTAINS MORE CANNABINOID RECEPTORS THAN ANY OTHER GPCR, WHICH SHOWS HOW IMPORTANT THESE COMPOUNDS ARE TO US. GPCRS ARE TARGETS FOR ABOUT HALF OF THE DRUGS CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET, MAINLY DUE TO THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN SIGNALING PATHWAYS RELATED TO MANY DISEASES I.E. MENTAL, METABOLIC INCLUDING ENDOCRINOLOGICAL DISORDERS, IMMUNOLOGICAL INCLUDING VIRAL INFECTIONS, CARDIOVASCULAR, INFLAMMATORY, SENSES DISORDERS, AND CANCER.

THIS PLANT ALSO CONTAINS AT LEAST 120 TERPENE COMPOUNDS THAT GIVE PLANTS THEIR SMELL BUT ALSO HAVE MANY BENEFICIAL FUNCTIONS IN THE BODY. THE MOST FAMOUS TERPENE IS VITAMIN A, WHICH IS INVOLVED IN IMMUNE FUNCTION, VISION, REPRODUCTION, AND CELLULAR COMMUNICATION. THE MOST ABUNDANT TERPENES IN CANNABIS ARE PINENE, CARYOPHYLLENE, HUMULENE, LIMONENE, LINALOOL, MYRCENE, AND TERPINOLENE. THEY ALL PLAY DIFFERENT ROLES AND EACH STRAIN OF WEED CONTAINS VARYING CONCENTRATES LEADING TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF EFFECTS.

So What Gets Me High?

THC GETS YOU HIGH, CBD DOESN’T.

DON’T WORRY THOUGH, THE CAPSULES SOLD ON R.Y.’S WEBSITE DO NOT CONTAIN ENOUGH THC TO SEND YOU TO THE MOON…JUST ENOUGH TO ELEVATE YOUR EXPERIENCE & ACTIVATE ALL THE BENEFITS OF THE CANNABIS PLANT (BUT IF YOU DO WANT TO VISIT SPACE, TRY RY’S VOYAGER BLEND FOUND ON WEEDMAPS). THC IS OFTEN CALLED “PSYCHOACTIVE,” MEANING IT IS A SUBSTANCE THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR MOOD, COGNITION, PERCEPTION, & BEHAVIOR WHEN CONSUMED. MANY FOLKS REPORT THEY NEED A LITTLE THC TO ACTUALLY FEEL THE EFFECTS OF CBD. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW THC & CBD WORK TOGETHER READ THE PAPER TITLED, “CANNABIS AND CANNABIS EXTRACTS: GREATER THAN THE SUM OF THEIR PARTS.”

R.Y.’S CENTRAL TENET COMES FROM THIS PAPER. IT IS WHY R.Y. DOESN’T EXTRACT OR SEPARATE THE CANNABINOIDS FROM ONE ANOTHER. INSTEAD THE WHOLE FLOWER, LEAVES, AND SEEDS ARE SIMPLY GROUND INTO A POWDER THEN LIGHTLY BAKED TO ACTIVE THE CANNABINOIDS. R.Y. BELIEVES BOTANICAL REMEDIES WORK BECAUSE HERBS CONTAIN MANY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS, AND THE PRIMARY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS MAY BE ENHANCED BY SECONDARY COMPOUNDS.

CBD HELPS WITH OVER A THOUSAND “THINGS”. UNFORTUNATELY, THE FDA DOES NOT ALLOW ANYONE SELLING CBD PRODUCTS TO DISCUSS THE PEER-REVIEWED MEDICAL STUDIES ABOUT CBD (OR ANY OTHER NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR THAT MATTER). THE FDA’S STANCE IS THAT CITING STUDIES IS A WAY OF SAYING THAT CBD HELPS WITH DISEASES. THEREFORE, WE CAN ONLY RECOMMEND YOU GOOGLE “CBD” TO LEARN WHAT IT IS CAPABLE OF.

IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THC COMES FROM THCA, AND CBD COMES FROM CBDA. THAT “A” STANDS FOR “ACID” BUT IS JUST A GROUP OF CARBON MOLECULES. THCA & CBDA ARE FOUND NATURALLY ON THE CANNABIS PLANT DURING HARVEST & WHEN CONSUMED DO NOT GIVE YOU NOTICEABLE EFFECTS. WHEN CANNABIS IS BAKED THE “A” FALLS OFF, LETTING THC AND CBD DO THEIR THING.

What Does R.Y. Stand For?

RAPHAEL MECHOULAM & YECHIEL GAONI ISOLATED THC IN 1964. THOSE LAW-ABIDING, ISRAELI CHEMISTS TREATED CANNABIS WITH DILIGENCE AND HIGH REGARD. R.Y. WILL FOLLOW THE TRAIL RAPHAEL & YECHIEL BLAZED BY PUTTING THIS PRODUCT THROUGH CLINICAL TRIALS.

WHAT DOES R.Y. SELL? CANNABIS VITAMINS. HOW DOES R.Y. MAKE THEM? GRIND THE PLANT INTO POWDER, BAKE IT, THEN MIX IT WITH OTHER HERBS, VITAMINS, AND MINERALS. BUT WHY? BECAUSE THIS PLANT IS TOO GOOD TO NOT INCLUDE IN OUR DAILY LIFE. PROHIBITION ON THIS PLANT IS ENDING. IT IS TIME FOR CANNABIS TO JOIN ALL THE OTHER SAFE AND EFFECTIVE HERBAL REMEDIES ON SHELVES AROUND THE WORLD.

R.Y. STANDS FOR SCIENCE. THAT IS WHY RY DOUBLE LAB TESTS EVERY BATCH. SCIENCE IS “OUR WHY”.
