A Consumer Cannabis & CBD Brand

Thorne A Long-Time Cannabis Enthusiast
Embodies the Brand’s Creative, Captivating and Rebellious Free Spirit

Bella Thorne, the artist, actress, musician, best-selling author, director, entrepreneur, and long-time cannabis enthusiast, has joined forces with Glass House Group, one of the fastest-growing, privately held, vertically integrated cannabis and hemp companies in the U.S., through its cultivation division Glass House Farms, to launch Forbidden Flowers, a new cannabis and CBD brand.

The initial launch will officially kick off with a “Forbidden Flowers Tour”’ which will take place over the next seven weeks. Starting on Thursday, October 10, 2019, on the forbiddenxflowers Instagram page at 10:00 a.m. PT, the first retail location, where consumers can purchase products from the following day on Friday, October 11, 2019, will be revealed. Each Thursday at 10:00 a.m. PT following through Thursday, November 21, 2019, the forbiddenxflowers Instagram page will reveal a new retail location in California, where Forbidden Flowers products can be purchased that following Friday. At the end of the seven weeks, additional retail locations across the Golden State California, which will carry Forbidden Flowers, will be announced to fans.

“I have struggled with anxiety for many years, and weed was the one source I found for me to do the most healing. Because of the properties in weed, I have been able to cope with my anxiety in a natural way, rather than my doctors trying to fix it using prescription drugs,“ said Artist Bella Thorne

“It’s been great spending time with Bella and getting to know and understand her as an individual before we created her brand together,” said Glass House Group Chief Marketing Officer Groovy Singh. “Her creative direction on Forbidden Flowers has been absolutely artistic and impressive. We’re proud to join forces with Bella in rolling out this sexy, enticing, high-quality brand that embodies her captivating spirit. The authenticity of what we are bringing to market together with Forbidden Flowers is what Bella handpicked at our grow, consumed and loved. At a time when more people are exploring the power of cannabis, we look forward to introducing a whole new community to the benefits of cannabis and to Bella sharing with her fans and consumers the ways she incorporates cannabis and CBD into her daily lifestyle.”

Bella worked intimately with Glass House Group to create Forbidden Flowers, which aims to give consumers the same rebellious, empowered feeling many consumers get when they consume cannabis. Today, despite the plant being legal in more than two-thirds of the U.S. in some form, cannabis consumers still face a variety of outdated stigmas. Recognizing that more new consumers are eager to become better educated about cannabis and CBD, Thorne plans to share the various ways she incorporates cannabis and CBD into her lifestyle, health and wellness regimes with her more than 21 million social media followers.

“Bella’s entire product line has been cultivated at our sun-powered, state-of-the-art facility in California using the same high-quality control and earth-friendly approach we are known and respected for,” said Glass House Group President Graham Farrar. “We brought some genetics that we grew for Bella for this launch and we are confident that both our long-time and new consumers are going to love these new product lines.”

To fit any mood or setting, Forbidden Flowers’ Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and CBD varieties will be available in stylish: glass jars eighths of flower; pre-roll five-packs; and pre-roll singles. Each Forbidden Flowers variety has been cultivated exclusively at Glass House Farms in Santa Barbara using coastal sun, organic standards and environmental sensibility to deliver uncompromising quality to consumers.

“We set out to engage a whole growing community of consumers embracing the cannabis and CBD market,” said Glass House Group CEO Kyle Kazan. “We’re pleased to have Forbidden Flowers join our growing portfolio of brands and to bring these products to consumers. We also look forward to rolling out more strategic brands and announcing partnerships in the future.”

How can vaping improve your life?

90% of smokers sooner or later decide to quit the addiction. But keep your promise to yourself not to smoke is sometimes tricky. It has long been proven that smoking is not so much physical as psychological dependence. No nicotine patch or special chewing gum will replace the exits to the smoke break. And here a vape or, in simpler terms, an electronic cigarette enters the arena, replacing the usual one both psychologically and physically, satisfying the body’s need for nicotine.


It should be noted that nicotine is not a carcinogen, and its toxicity is in the same group as caffeine and many kitchen seasonings. By the way, for those who want to eliminate nicotine consumption completely, electronic cigarettes are the best option. Why? Read on.


How to choose an electronic cigarette?


Although our society is considered modern and advanced, for the vast majority of people, the look, and even more so the soaring of an electronic cigarette, causes bewilderment and fear. We hasten to reassure you, set up and use the best wax pens (https://vapingdaily.com/vaporizers/weed-pens/best-dab-wax-pen/) no more difficult than, for example, with an elementary mobile phone. To do this, it’s worthwhile to clarify the principle of operation of an e-cigarette.


An electronic cigarette consists of a battery pack, it is a battery, and an atomizer is a tank. The atomizer, in turn, consists of a reservoir for storing liquid and an evaporation element – the heart of an electronic cigarette. The evaporator is a structure composed of a spiral and cotton. And then ordinary physics: the battery supplies voltage to the spiral, which in turn heats the cotton soaked in a special liquid for soaring. This is where we get the fragrant steam. By the way, this very liquid is for soaring and can be either nicotine-free or with nicotine content.


Everything else regarding the electronic cigarette, appearance, and form factor is a matter of the buyer’s taste. The only things worth paying attention to are the presence of Varivatt, Varivolt, and thermal control modes (regulation of power, voltage, and steam temperature, respectively).
There are the best dab pens with and without these options. In the first case, the user sets the indicators suitable for him, but in the absence of these modes, the supplied voltage, and therefore the amount of steam, will depend on the battery charge level. If you want to use these settings, you can buy a vape mod.


What is the harm and benefit of vaping?

There are no large-scale studies that would demonstrate a clear and unified point of view on the effect of electronic cigarettes and vapor devices on human health and those around them. This is because people began to smoke (wipe) relatively recently – about 3-5 years ago.
Such a short period is not enough for serious research about the harm of vaping. Nevertheless, some centers and universities still decided to trace the people who smoke electronic cigarettes and draw the first conclusions. For example, researchers at Lawrence Berkeley Labs found that liquids in electronic devices contain 31 toxic chemicals, including acrolein, diacetyl, and formaldehyde, whose levels increase depending on the temperature and type of wax vaporizer.


At the same time, researchers at The Roswell Park Cancer Institute concluded that smoking (vaporizing) electronic devices have a less pronounced carcinogenic effect than regular cigarettes. But wait, vapers, it’s too early to triumph. The study was published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research in 2016, but it was conducted in 2011.


Therefore, it is difficult to judge its relevance. Another study reports the following: using electronic cigarettes can reduce mortality due to regular smoking by 21%. The lead author of the study, David Levy, a professor at Georgetown University in Washington, says that electronic cigarettes can improve a person’s health if he uses them as a replacement for regular smoking. These different results only prove what we talked about: vaping is a new phenomenon, and so far too little time has passed so that scientists can decide whether this hobby is harmful or not.


From the pluses: in electronic devices, there are no combustion products – particles of soot and tar. These substances usually settle on the mucous membranes of the lungs, bronchi, and upper respiratory tract, which causes a violation of their functions and ultimately leads to the development of many diseases of these organs. Because of the products of combustion, smokers of regular cigarettes turn yellow their teeth, worsen their sense of smell and taste.
Those who prefer a wax pen can avoid these troubles. Another advantage of electronic cigarettes can be considered the absence of exposure to the respiratory organs of hot burning smoke. In combination with nicotine, high temperatures increase the risk of carcinogenic processes.


In general, most scientists agree on one thing: vaping is much less harmful than smoking, but it cannot be called safe. Of the additional bonuses: the ability to vape in the rooms, the absence of the pungent smell of smoke from clothes and hair and the mouth, and “pleasant things” due to quitting smoking: restoration of smell, improvement of well-being, and so on.


But it should be remembered that sometimes the transition to steam can be accompanied by unpleasant sensations. They arise, as a rule, due to quitting smoking. The “withdrawal syndrome” is launched, the body, accustomed to the products of tobacco burning, begins to rebuild in a new way. In some cases, even nausea appears. As a scapegoat, vaping is logically chosen, the person starts smoking again, the body returns to normal, and the smoker forever refuses to use a wax vape pen again.
With reasonable expenses, vaping is cheaper than cigarette smoking, but this is not always the case. Very often, a person quickly retracts, and soon the “smoker” apartment begins to resemble an alchemical laboratory: everywhere there are strange bubbles with markings on them, various devices, and above all this rises a collection of multiple devices filled with colored liquids.
