Frequently Asked Product QuestionsOn this page you will find all frequently asked questions about all kinds of products.
When you scroll through the overview of long rolling papers, you may notice that there are many different size names instead of dimensions. So you see King Size, KSS, 1 ¼ rolling paper and so on. It can be difficult to tell the difference between King Size and King Size Slim just by looking at the packaging. At that moment you are still wondering: what size are my rolling papers actually? You can see this in the overview below. The rest of this article discusses the specifics.
IMPORTANT: To save you a lot of return hassle, we ask you to pay extra attention to the size name and the dimensions you require. As an extra check, we also recommend checking the total amount. If it is much higher or much lower than normal, please check your order again!
KING SIZE FAMILY LONG PIECES
The most popular lengths of long rolling papers in the Netherlands are the King Size papers. How long are those papers? The members of this King Size family are all 110 mm (11 cm) long. The biggest difference of this floor is in the width. It depends on your preference which width suits you best.
THE EXCEPTION: 1 1/4'' rolling papers
In addition to the King Size family, there are more residents in Grasscompany.com's Lange Vloeiland. Take the 1 ¼ rolling paper. This name makes you think that these are longer rolling papers than the King Size long rolling papers, but appearances are deceiving. However, when developing this name, not the leaves, but rolling tobacco were used as a starting point. This makes this flu shorter than King Size long rolling papers.
OTHER SIZES AND NAMES LONG BLANKET
Within the range of Grasscompany.com you will also find other sizes and names of long rolling papers. These Slim and Short flooring are close in size to the King Size family, but are slightly different. For people who like extra long joints, we also have foam rolls. These long papers can be torn to length.
So we cannot tell you what dimensions your favorite long rolling paper has . All size names of long rolling papers in our webshop are listed in this article. So always check carefully which size of rolling paper you purchase, because this cannot be determined from the packaging. Even though a product says 1 ¼'' rolling papers, this does not mean that they are larger than King Size rolling papers. You can see these types as an intermediate size between rolling papers for shag smokers and leaves for smokers.
You now know the different forms of long rolling papers. We're glad we could help you further, but now it's time for the next step. You can find the best rolling paper for rolling a weed joint or hash joint on the related pages. Do you already know your answer to that last question? Then go back to the Long Rolling Paper page and choose your favorite size name!
The most well-known rolling papers are made from wood fibers and are thinner than standard printing paper. In addition, bleach is added to many papers, which gives them the white color. In some cases, brown ink is also added to get brown colored papers. Unbleached rolling paper is also brown in color but does not contain ink, so make sure that you actually buy unbleached rolling paper without ink, for example from Greengo .
Some other rolling paper variants are hemp rolling paper , made from hemp fibers. This rolling paper will not get you stoned or high, because it contains no THC. Hemp blunt rolling papers from Hemparillo have been available since the beginning of 2018 and are becoming an increasingly well-known rolling paper.
A completely different type of rolling paper is transparent rolling paper, or glass rolling paper . This is transparent rolling paper from aLeda and is made from vegetable cellulose. Although it looks like plastic, it is definitely not. The nice thing about glass rolling paper is that it is transparent so you can see what is in the joint.
Long rolling papers for a hash joint are actually no different than long rolling papers for a weed joint. You also have the choice between Slim and Regular . Both sizes are characterized as 'long rolling papers' and are also known as 'King size'.
King size rolling paper is definitely the type of rolling paper you need when rolling the well-known joint. However, just like with a cannabis joint, it is a personal choice to choose the Slim or Regular size. One joint rollr prefers a wider rolling paper (Regular), while another prefers a narrower size (Slim) for making a joint.
The differences between Slim and Regular rolling papers:
Slim Regular Width 44 mm 53 mm Length 110 mm 110 mm
However, to choose the best rolling paper for your hash joint, you no longer just look at the size. There is also a preference for unbleached or bleached rolling papers. Bleached rolling paper is currently the best known and is generally best recognized by the white color of rolling paper. Not everyone has a preference for this and sometimes it is also for financial reasons, because bleached rolling paper is often cheaper than unbleached rolling paper.
Unbleached rolling papers are becoming more and more famous and that is not without reason. This type of rolling paper can often be recognized by its brown color, but the most important thing is that this is also stated on the packaging. Rolling papers can also be brown due to added ink during the production process. Unbleached rolling papers are often slightly more expensive, but this prevents you from smoking bleach.
A completely different type of rolling paper that is also becoming more and more known is glass rolling paper and this rolling paper can also be used for a hash joint. Transparent long rolling papers are made from vegetable cellulose and the nice thing about this is that you can look through the joint to see what is inside. However, rolling a joint with transparent rolling paper can be a bit more difficult, because the material feels different from the well-known paper long rolling paper.
King size rolling paper is the ideal type of rolling paper that you need when rolling a joint. Slim or Regular size, however, is a personal choice where the joint rollr prefers a wider rolling paper (Regular) or a narrower size (Slim) to roll a joint from.
The differences between Slim and Regular rolling papers:
Slim Regular Width 44 mm 53 mm Length 110 mm 110 mm
In addition to the difference in size, a preference has also emerged in bleached or unbleached rolling papers. Bleached rolling paper is currently the best known and is recognizable by the white color of rolling paper. Many users of this type of rolling paper have little to no knowledge about bleached or unbleached rolling paper. A choice for bleached rolling paper can also have financial reasons, because bleached rolling paper is often cheaper than unbleached rolling paper.
Unbleached rolling papers are becoming more and more popular and are becoming more and more famous. This type of rolling paper can often be recognized by its brown color, but the most important thing is that this is also stated on the packaging. Rolling papers can also be brown due to added ink during production. Unbleached rolling papers are often slightly more expensive, but it almost goes without saying that smoking bleach can never be a wise choice.
A completely different type of rolling paper that is also becoming more and more famous is glass rolling paper . This is transparent rolling paper made from vegetable cellulose. The nice thing about this is that you can look through the joint and see what's inside. However, rolling a joint with transparent long rolling papers can be a little more difficult, because the material feels different from the well-known paper long rolling papers.
Rolling a joint is not always easy. There are plenty of people who simply cannot do this (yet), because it is a skill that you have to practice. Of course, there are also natural talents among us who can do this with ease, but that is not the case for most people.
How you close a rolling paper depends on the type of joint you are rolling. Ultimately, it is important that the paper is tight enough, especially around the tip, and then closed using the adhesive edge. Regardless of whether it is a standard joint, an inside-out variety or one of the more spectacular varieties, what matters is that there is no gap along the sticky edge and that it is twisted tightly enough for smoking. If this is not the case, you will get false air when you take a hit, which will cause a lot of smoke to be lost and can even result in the joint going out continuously.
The most convenient way to see how to close a rolling paper is through photos or video. This way you can easily see which steps you need to take and see the result immediately. The video below shows how to roll an inside-out joint. This is a type of joint where you use less paper because you tear off part of it at the end.
The name Rice Paper originated from the Rizla brand. Lacroix is the original company behind Rizla and 'Riz' is the French name for 'Rice'. The name is therefore an amalgamation of: Riz La croix. Since 1860, Lacroix has been making cigarette paper that is reminiscent of rice due to its texture and color. Originally, Lacroix actually made the rolling paper with rice as a raw material. Nowadays, the Rizla brand is owned by Imperial Brands and rice is no longer used as a raw material.
Although the name Rice Paper is well known, this is actually no longer a justified name. There is no longer any rolling paper that uses rice as a raw material. White rolling paper is generally made from wood fibers with, among other things, bleach as an addition that gives the rolling paper a white color.
Smoking is by definition bad for you and inhaling burnt paper is no exception. That's why people choose to use the thinnest possible paper with little to no chemicals. Turning a joint inside out also ensures that you use less paper.
Not all rolling papers have the same thickness or materials used. The most well-known rolling paper is made of paper (wood fibers), with the white colored variant also containing bleach. Greengo unbleached rolling papers do not contain bleach and are free of other chemicals. Another type of rolling paper is flavored rolling paper , but due to the addition of flavorings, this is also more detrimental to your health. Nowadays there is also glass rolling paper , or transparent rolling paper, made from vegetable cellulose. It looks like plastic, but it's definitely not. However, smoking vegetable cellulose is also harmful to your health.
When you see a bong for the first time, you may quickly wonder how it actually works. Where should the herbs go? When do you light the herbs? From which part should you inhale? We have created a step-by-step plan in which we explain exactly when and what needs to be done to know how to smoke weed with a bong .
- Fill the tube or bulb part of the bong with (clean) water until the main part (the pipe) is slightly submerged;
- If necessary: Place a screen (sieve) on the end of the pipe, so that the herbs do not fall through the pipe into the bong;
- Place your herbs on the sieve on the end (dry part) of the pipe;
- Place your finger on the kick hole (the hole usually on the side of the tube;
Some bongs do not have a blow hole, but you need to remove the main part (the pipe) from the bong once the pipe is full of smoke
- Place your mouth on the top of the tube (your mouth does not have to go over the tube);
- Light the herbs while inhaling at the same time and do this until the tube is full of smoke;
- Then remove your finger from the hole and do not light your herbs any further;
- Now inhale as much smoke as possible that had collected in the tube;
- Congratulations, because you can now smoke with a bong!
A bong and a water pipe are very similar and many people often mean the same thing. However, there are some differences. The biggest difference between a regular water pipe and a bong is the thickness of the pipe through which you smoke. With a bong it is often extra large to absorb a lot of smoke.
A water pipe often also refers to a shisha, which was originally used for smoking flavored tobacco .
By adding ice to a bong you ensure that the smoke is inhaled cooled down. This makes inhaling feel less sharp on the throat.
Smoking hash with a bong is certainly possible. By placing a piece of hash on thescreen of the bong, the hash will not fall into the bong. Use a lighter to light the hash and use the bong immediately.
Please note that if hash is soft and very sticky, this can cause it to remain in the screen. Eventually this will mean that the screen will have to be replaced, but if this is not possible with the bong, the bong will no longer be usable.
Which bong is best depends on a number of personal preferences, so you can ask yourself a number of questions to choose the best bong.
- What is my budget for a new bong?
- What material should my bong be made of?
- Small, medium or large size bong?
- Bong for on the road?
By answering these questions you will quickly find a good bong for you. Use the filters on our Bongs category page to only show the bongs you are interested in.
Cleaning a bong can be an annoying job, but do this regularly so as not to let a dirty bong affect the taste of smoking. Cleaning a bong is not as difficult as you might think, but do this regularly so that smoke residues do not accumulate too much in your bong.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CLEAN YOUR BONG:
- Tap water (hot)
- Epsom salt, table salt or baking soda
- Cleaning agent
- Pipe cleaners, test tube brush, cotton swabs
- Kitchen towel
- Bowl or bucket to immerse the parts in
HOW TO CLEAN A BONG:
- Start by taking the bong apart so that each part can be cleaned. Remove all loose parts, such as the glass cone and the mouthpiece, if present;
- First rinse the bong as much as possible with hot water. Then let the bong dry;
- Then you continue with the cone and any mouthpiece. Pour Epsom salt or table salt or baking soda into these parts. For an average bong you need about 80 to 120 milligrams of salt. Tip: Use a funnel to easily pour the salt into the cone and mouthpiece;
- The next step is to use cleaning agent. Use a cleaning agent of your choice. For some this is isopropyl alcohol, for others it is vinegar or Listerine. All-purpose cleaner is not recommended. Pour a generous amount of cleaning agent into the bong. The amount obviously depends on the size of your bong, but a good amount to start with is 120 milliliters;
- Cover all openings with your hand so that the liquid does not come out and shake your bong. Do this for at least five minutes, and the more you shake the better;
- Then empty your bong into the sink and rinse it thoroughly with water. You can repeat this process if necessary, but with good maintenance, once is often sufficient;
- You can then clean the main part, the pipe. Use pipe cleaners, test tube brushes, cotton swabs or other tools so that you can properly scrub stubborn areas;
- Your bong is now clean and ready for use again!
- Use a bent wire clothes hanger with a piece of cloth or paper towel soaked in cleaning solution around it to clean difficult areas;
- Bottle brushes or teat brushes are also good tools;
- Do not use dishwashing liquid as this will make your bong taste like dishwashing liquid for a while;
- Most cleaners are flammable, so never use this while smoking;
- When using methylated spirits, it is advisable to do so in a well-ventilated area.
A grinder, also known as a crusher or crumbler , is intended for grinding cannabis or other herbs. This leaves you with a crumbled remnant of the originally larger parts, so you can easily distribute the crumbled remains. Especially when rolling a joint, crumbling the weed is a requirement so that it can be properly distributed over the entire (long) paper. The grinder, or crumbler, makes crumbling weed easier, faster and better than doing it by hand.
A grinder, or crusher , actually works very simply, but you just need to know how:
- Open the top part of the grinder.
- Place some cannabis buds or other herbs on the grinder teeth.
- Then place the top part of the grinder on the newly laid down buds.
- Carefully start turning the top part.
- Then turn with more force and keep turning until you feel there is no more resistance.
- Open the top part of the grinder and see if everything has crumbled.
- With a 2-piece grinder you can immediately see whether everything is properly crushed when you open the top part of the grinder.
- With a multi-part grinder, you then open the second part to see whether all the crumbled weed has been collected in the third part of the grinder.
Then use the crumbled contents as desired!
Crumbling weed works best with a grinder , i.e. a crumbler or crusher. If you want to crumble weed, it is useful to first make the weed bud slightly smaller by hand. This prevents crumbled weed from falling outside your grinder if the weed bud is too large to crumble in one go. In addition, you can immediately remove some twigs by hand before putting weed in the weed grinder. Branches are not good for your joint because they can pierce your rolling paper and also cause headaches when smoking them.
Once you put the non-crumbled weed into your grinder, move the top part of the grinder back and forth so that the weed is thoroughly ground. Repeat this until you feel there is nothing left to crumble. Remove the top part of the grinder to see if everything has fallen properly through the holes during crushing.
Depending on the number of parts your grinder has, open your grinder to remove the crumbled weed from the crumbler.
Some grinders have a so-called THC sieve. This will allow THC residues, created by the crumbling of weed, to pass through the sieve and be collected in the lower part of the weed crumbler. This sand-like substance can be used for various purposes, such as making hash. You can also use the THC powder yourself by rolling a THC joint.
With a 4-piece grinder, the distribution from top to bottom is as follows:
- Top part: moving crusher part with which you can crumble weed or other herbs by hand using rotating movements.
- Second part: fixed crusher part with rotating mechanism with which the upper part goes together to crumble the weed or other herbs.
- Third part: fixed collection part with rotating mechanism where the crumbled weed or other herbs can be collected after it has been crumbled by the two upper parts. This part contains a THC sieve through which THC residues can fall through and be collected by the fourth part.
- Lower part: fixed collection part with rotating mechanism in which the THC remains, a sand-like substance, can be collected.
It is possible to crumble hash with a grinder, but not without a struggle. First of all, we recommend a metal grinder , because a plastic grinder can easily break with the force you have to use to crumble hash. Hash comes in many different sizes and varies greatly in softness or hardness. Never put too large chunks of hash in the metal grinder, but first make the hash chunks a little smaller so that they fit properly in the crusher.
Then turn the top part of your metal grinder with enough force so that the hash starts to crumble. When the hash is softer you will notice that parts of the hash stick to the blades of the grinder . You can remove this with your fingers or a stick, but you can also soak it loose in boiling water.
Do not light the hash with fire to soften the hash, because that will cause a (large) part of the THC to burn immediately. To soften the hash, you can also warm it between your palms. This takes a little longer, but the quality of the hash remains best intact.
To crumble hash, it is best to use a metal grinder , also known as an aluminum grinder. This is because of the force required to properly crumble hash. A plastic grinder can easily break through this, so this is always not recommended. Depending on the hardness of the hash, in some cases it is possible to use a plastic grinder, but this is at your own risk. A metal grinder is strong enough for crumbling hash.
Which grinder is best depends on a number of personal wishes. Therefore, first ask yourself the following questions so that we can recommend the best grinder.
WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET FOR A GRINDER?
Depending on your personal budget, you often choose a cheaper grinder or a more expensive version. Of course, you must take the lifespan of a grinder into account. An acrylic grinder does not last as long as a metal or aluminum grinder. However, a metal grinder is slightly more expensive than an acrylic grinder .
DO YOU OFTEN USE A GRINDER?
If you often use a crusher, we recommend a metal grinder . Metal grinders last longer and generally run smoother than a plastic grinder.
DO YOU ONLY WANT TO GRIND WEED OR ALSO HASH?
A plastic crumbler and a metal crumbler are both suitable for crushing weed. However, if you also want to crumble hash, we recommend a metal grinder. A plastic crusher is often not strong enough to crumble hash, which can cause the plastic grinder to break quickly.
DO YOU ALSO WANT TO COLLECT THC RESIDUALS?
If you also want to save residues of THC, a sand-like substance, we recommend a 4-piece grinder . A 4-part grinder contains an extra collection part with a THC sieve. The THC that is released from the crumbled weed will pass through the THC sieve and be collected in the lower part of the 4-piece grinder. These residues can be used again over time by, for example, making hashish.
You determine the best grinder for you based on the above issues. If you still have a question, our customer service is of course ready to advise you further.
Cleaning a grinder ensures that your grinder lasts longer and can do its job better. After a long time, accumulations of THC and other residues ensure that your grinder no longer crumbles properly and the rotating mechanism becomes stuck. So clean your weed grinder regularly, but do this as efficiently as possible. That's why we divided it into cleaning a plastic grinder and cleaning an aluminum grinder (metal grinder).
CLEANING THE PLASTIC GRINDER
Cleaning a plastic grinder, or acrylic grinder , is possible using one of the methods below.
CLEANING PLASTIC GRINDER WITH VINEGAR
- Heat a pan with plenty of water and white vinegar in it.
- Place the grinder parts in the pan.
- Let it soak for about 10 minutes.
- Remove the parts (be careful: hot!).
- Scrub off the last residue with an (old) toothbrush.
- Rinse the grinder parts with (cold) water.
- The grinder is clean again!
CLEAN PLASTIC GRINDER IN THE DISHWASHER
Some plastic grinders are dishwasher safe. Make sure that your plastic crumbler is suitable for this, otherwise you run the risk of the grinder coming out of the dishwasher deformed. If your crusher is suitable for the dishwasher, make sure that all parts are placed separately in the dishwasher, so that each part can be cleaned properly. We recommend placing the grinder parts in the cutlery tray of the dishwasher, so that they do not get stuck in the dishwasher filter.
CLEANING METAL GRINDER
Cleaning a metal grinder, or aluminum grinder , can be done in different ways. It is not recommended to put a metal grinder in the dishwasher due to possible rust formation, which will make the crusher unusable. If your grinder does have rust, this can be removed with cola.
CLEANING METAL GRINDER WITH MILK
- Place a pan with milk (semi-skimmed or whole milk) on the stove.
- The milk does not have to boil, but it does have to be hot.
- Leave the grinder parts in the milk for about 10 minutes.
- Remove the crumble parts from the pan (be careful: hot!).
- If necessary, scrub off the last residue with an (old) toothbrush.
- Rinse the grinder parts with (cold) water.
- Your grinder is clean again!
CLEANING METAL GRINDER WITH ALCOHOL
- Place the grinder parts in a bowl or pan with a generous layer of alcohol.
- Let the parts soak for a few minutes.
- Remove the grinder parts from the bowl or pan.
- Scrub off the last residue with an (old) toothbrush.
- Your grinder is clean again!
CLEAN METAL GRINDER WITH BOILING WATER
- Place the grinder parts separately in a pan with water.
- Bring the pan of water to the boil.
- Leave it for 5-10 minutes.
- Remove the grinder parts from the pan (be careful: hot!).
- Scrub off the last residue with, for example, an (old) toothbrush.
- Rinse the grinder parts with (cold) water.
- The grinder is clean again!
Don't feel like cleaning your grinder? Then of course you purchase a new weed grinder from Grasscompany.com!
The hemp blunt wraps on Grasscompany.com do not have a sticky edge . If you often roll (hemp) blunts, you may already be used to this: it is not unusual to deliver blunts without a sticky edge.
HOW DO YOU SEAL A BLUNT?
There are several ways to make a 'dense' hemp blunt. You can choose to purchase special glue that does this for you, but the simplest way is very similar to the technique you know from smoking with long papers: licking and sticking.
LICK HEMP BLUNT WRAPS AND SEAL
Don't expect the hemp blunt to stick as quickly as a long rolling paper - otherwise the makers would have made a sticky edge. Give your product a few minutes to dry, check that everything sticks well and you can start steaming!
Can't do it in one go? No problem at all! Rome wasn't built in a day either, practice makes perfect and *insert your reason here why trying once is never enough*.
The hemp blunt wraps on Grasscompany.com do not naturally contain tobacco. To emphasize this once again, the makers of this hemp blunt have mentioned this again on the packaging.
ALMOST THE SAME AS CIGAR LEAVES
This is not always the case. If you know the history of these blunts, you know that this concept came over from the cigar trade decades ago. These blunts generally contain tobacco because they come from cigar leaves. Blunts naturally contain tobacco. In fact, in many cases this is still the case.
HEMP INSTEAD OF TOBACCO
This is different for Hemparillo blunts wraps. This blunt consists of industrial hemp plant leaves. The fact that hemp has been chosen as a raw material also means that there is no tobacco in these products as long as you do not add tobacco.
The flavor of your hemp rolling paper depends on which flavor you purchase. These hemp rolling papers, unlike 'normal' long rolling papers, have a wide choice of flavours. But even if you don't feel like adding a fruity or sweet touch to your (fun) cigarette, hemp blunt wraps can take your smoking experience to a new height thanks to, among other things, the 'Naked' blunt.
NATURAL HEMP BLUNT
If you normally roll and smoke with Greengo or Flamez, there are some differences when you start puffing on the 'Naked' (natural) hemp blunt. Hemp wraps are thicker than long rolling papers, which makes your weed or hash less spicy in terms of taste when you compare these two smoking products. These blunt wraps are 'naked' because no flavorings have been added.
HEMP BLUNT WITH FLAVOR
If you choose one of the flavored blunts, you will taste your herbs even less, but you will get a different taste experience in return. So it just depends on how you stimulate your taste buds. If you prefer to do this with a flavor blunt, your original smoking product will taste less like herbs than when you use a 'Naked' or regular long rolling paper.
Hemp Blunt Wraps are available in the following flavors:
- OG Kush
- Mango Haze
- Cali Fire
No, hemp cosmetics will not make you high. You get stoned from the substance THC , and Extravaganja products are THC-free.
INDUSTRIAL HEMP PLANTS
The hemp plant extracts used for Extravaganja hemp soap, shampoo and other care products come from industrial hemp plants. That is a different type of plant than the commonly known 'weed plant'. These hemp plants naturally contain less than 1% THC .
In Extravaganja care products, even that one percent of THC has been filtered out. This makes it impossible to get high from these products. Nevertheless, hemp shampoo, hemp soap and hemp hand cream do provide a shiny head of hair, supple skin and soft hands.
Extravaganja does get some help from the human body. Cannabidiols are already naturally present in the human body. This is due to the endocannabinoid system of the human body. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids. By adding these substances to the shampoo, your body gets a boost of body's own substances.
What benefits do these hemp cosmetics have? These 'CBD substances' kill bacteria and, for example, keep your blood sugar in check. In addition, hemp cosmetics are also ideal for skin and hair care.
You will not get high or stoned from Extravanganja, but that is also not the point of these products. Hemp cosmetics provide relaxation for body and mind without the use of THC – unless you smoke a joint, of course.
You would almost say that cannabis cannot be missing from hemp soap. Especially because this product is often called cannabis soap. We can be clear: there is no weed or hashish in hemp soap.
NO THC, ONLY HEMP OIL
The question is: what is in hemp soap? This care product is made up of various elements (link to product page), including one important cannabis extract: hemp oil. This oil is extracted from industrial hemp plants. These plants are known for their low THC levels.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant and is therefore also the substance that makes you 'stoned' or 'high'. Because this substance hardly occurs in industrial hemp plants - and certainly not in Extravaganja products - you can say that there is no weed in your hemp soap.
BODY SUBSTANCES WORK GOOD FOR YOUR BODY
Then the next question quickly arises: why should you use hemp soap? Just like Hemp hand cream, cannabis extracts in this soap protect your hand skin. In addition, the exotic fruit extracts incorporated into the soap give off a nice scent.
Besides the fact that there is no weed in your hemp soap, you also don't smell like a walking coffee shop. On the other hand, you really have to light up a joint if you want to get high. If you just want to relax your skin, then Extravaganja hemp cosmetics are more than enough for you.
Hemp shampoo is on par with the shampoos you get at the local supermarket or drugstore. Especially when you find out why this is a good hair care product for you.
The hemp oil in this shampoo has a positive effect on the keratin protein. This body's own substance is on the (scalp) skin of humans and animals. It makes your hair shine more than Rihanna's Diamonds in the Sky.
Maybe you already knew that keratin was important for shiny hair, but did you also know that hemp oil strengthens the production of this body's own protein?
It doesn't stop there: in addition to shiny hair, the hemp oil in this shampoo also ensures that your hairstyle is more elastic, has more volume and makes it easier to run a comb through it.
FOR FULL, SHINY HAIR
Hemp oil is therefore a very rich source of essential fatty acids for your scalp. It also ensures that your hair shines while you comb through your locks super easily. So yes: hemp shampoo is a good shampoo for everyone – read: every hair type .
You can use hemp hand cream very well if you have dry hands. This hemp cream not only works against dry hands, but also protects your two wearers against every other danger that daily life entails.
HEMP HAND CREAM?
How does a hemp hand cream actually work? Just like regular hand creams, hemp cream provides an extra layer on top of your hand skin. When you have dry hands, this actually means that the moisture in your hand skin has (partly) disappeared. This mainly occurs in warm summers or cold winters.
When dry hands strike really varies from person to person. We think it is better to prevent than to cure. If you choose to use hemp hand cream, you are at least choosing natural remedies to help you get rid of your dry hands.
What is the best thing to do about dry hands? Greasing is the best medicine against rough hand skin. If you do this with hand cream with hemp oil, you give your body an extra boost through the body's own substances that the hemp plant carries. As a result, your skin quickly absorbs the hemp oil, the arnica extract ensures that the dryness disappears and Shea Butter makes your hands supple again.
The Extravaganja hand care product that you will find in our range is a good hand cream with hemp extract. Is it the best choice for you? Only you can test this yourself in your own hemp hand cream test. In any case, it will not make you stoned or high: this hemp hand cream is THC-free .
In addition, Extravaganja's hand cream is suitable for daily use, you can apply it to all skin types and it is a hand cream without Vaseline and paraffin. For example, do you also suffer from dry foot skin or smelly feet? Then take a look at the Extravaganja foot cream .
Vaporizers are divided into two types, namely a convection vaporizer and a conduction vaporizer. Both types of vaporizers have their own way of working, where the end goal is the same: Herbs evaporate through heating instead of combustion.
Convection vaporizer , also known as a hot air vaporizer, has an indirect heating method. Such a cannabis vaporizer ensures that the herbs are evaporated by hot air. You put the herbs or oil in a separate room. You then set the temperature so that the contents of the separate chamber are gradually heated without burning them. Once the vaporizer is up to temperature, you can inhale the vapor. After this, wait again until the correct temperature has been reached before inhaling the vapor again.
Conduction vaporizer , also known as a hot plate vaporizer, has a direct heating method. This weed vaporizer has a hot plate on which you place herbs or oil. Due to heating of the plate, active ingredients in the herbs will evaporate. During a session you should stir the herbs so that not only the bottom herbs are heated.
A vaporizer is divided into two types, namely a hot air vaporizer and a hot plate vaporizer. Both types of vaporizers work in their own way, with the same end goal: evaporating herbs by heating and not by combustion.
Hot air vaporizer , also known as a convection vaporizer, has an indirect heating method. The big advantage of this is that the temperature is better distributed than with a hot plate vaporizer. In addition, a hot air weed vaporizer has a more precise temperature setting. The element that provides heating is located in a separate room in these vaporizers, which ensures that the hot air can slowly penetrate the herbs or oil without burning it. Because there is no combustion, the aromas come into their own better. Hot air weed vaporizers provide a soft, light vapor. The disadvantage of this type of vaporizer is that they are generally more expensive and complicated than a hot plate dry herb vaporizer.
Hot plate vaporizer , also known as a conduction vaporizer, has a direct heating method. These vaporizers have a hot plate on which you place herbs or oil. By heating the plate, active ingredients in the herbs will evaporate. This type of cannabis vaporizer often produces a full, dense vapor. A conduction vaporizer is often simpler than a hot air weed vaporizer, is easier to maintain and is usually cheaper to purchase. Unfortunately, this type of cannabis vaporizer also has disadvantages. During a session you should stir the herbs so that not only the bottom herbs are heated. And because the temperature is less easy to manage, there is a chance that the herbs will sometimes be slightly burned by the hot plate. However, the combustion remains less than when you actually smoke it.
Refilling a vaporizer differs per type. This is the biggest difference between a convection vaporizer and a conduction vaporizer.
With a convection vaporizer, also known as a hot air vaporizer, you fill a capsule or separate chamber with crumbled herbs. You can then start using the cannabis vaporizer.
With a conduction vaporizer, also known as a hot plate vaporizer, you place crumbled herbs on a plate in the weed vaporizer. The weed vaporizer can then be put into use.
With both models, when the herbs are brown to black, the herbs have been used up and new herbs are needed to continue evaporating.
How fast a vaporizer works depends very much on each model. The evaporator must reach temperature and with many models you can determine the temperature yourself. The higher the temperature, the longer the vaporizer needs. Some models can do this within a minute, other models need several minutes. However, the effect will not last longer than five minutes, so you can start vaping quickly enough.
A vaporizer is generally a very solid device that has a long lifespan. Because it is quite simple to use, a weed vaporizer is not likely to malfunction due to incorrect use. Place the herbs on the plate near a hot air vaporizer and turn on the weed vaporizer. With a hot air vaporizer, you put the herbs in the appropriate chamber and then turn on the vaporizer.
Make sure you maintain the vaporizer properly, as this affects the lifespan of a dry herb vaporizer. When using a vaporizer, tar is also released, which accumulates on the hot plate of a conduction vaporizer or in the separate chamber of a convection vaporizer. When transporting a cannabis vaporizer, you should handle it with care, because if used wildly, it can have a negative impact on the lifespan of your vaporizer.
Basically you can vaporize any dried herb you want. The most well-known of these are cannabis and tobacco, but there are also people who vape herbs other than cannabis . Please note that not every herb is suitable for inhalation and can even be dangerous. Find out about this carefully before you start experimenting with herbs yourself.
Vaporizing weed with a weed vaporizer is quite simple and a vaporizer is most commonly used for this purpose.
A weed vaporizer is available in two types, namely a hot air vaporizer and a hot plate vaporizer. For both dry herb vaporizers you start by crushing the weed. This is best done with a weed grinder. Once the weed is properly ground, it is time to apply the weed to the weed vaporizer.
With a hot air vaporizer, you put the ground weed in the separate chamber and close the chamber. After this, switch on the dry herb vaporizer and set the desired temperature. Once the set temperature has been reached, it is time to inhale the vapor. The vaporizer must then return to the set temperature to inhale vapor again. You can continue to repeat this process until there is no more vapor and the ground weed needs to be replaced. When you open the separate chamber you will see brown to black weed remains.
With a hot plate vaporizer, you place the ground weed on the plate. Then switch on the weed vaporizer and wait until it has reached the right temperature. Sometimes it is possible to set the temperature yourself with such models. Once the temperature has been reached, the vapor will come off the plate and you can then inhale the vapor. Every few times you vape, stir the weed on the plate so that you don't just vaporize the bottom part of the ground weed. Continue to repeat this until it is visible that all the weed has turned brown to black. Before a new vaping session, place new ground weed on the hot plate so that you can repeat the entire process.
Of course, the degree of stoned or high feeling is determined by the strength of the weed and personal tolerance. In general, experienced people speak of a different kind of high feeling than when using a joint, but that is because a vaporizer heats weed and does not burn it. Whether this is a pleasant or unpleasant experience is very personal and varies per person.
It is not recommended to use a vaporizer if you have asthma. Even though there are asthma patients who benefit from this, it has not yet been scientifically proven that using a vaporizer has positive effects on someone with asthma. Be well informed about this in advance and definitely discuss it with your doctor before experimenting with a vaporizer.
A vaporizer and an e-cigarette are both devices used to inhale a vapor, but they have different characteristics and purposes:
- Usage :
- Design :
- Mechanism of action :

Cannabis seeds are legal in the Netherlands. Cannabis seeds may be sold and purchased, but growing cannabis is not legal in the Netherlands.
As of March 1, 2015, a change has been implemented in the grow shop law. This law is mainly aimed at tackling large-scale and commercial cannabis cultivation. Cannabis seeds are excluded from list 2 of the Opium Act
Feminized cannabis seeds, or feminized weed seeds, are seeds that have a 95% chance of producing a female plant.
Feminized cannabis seeds are by far the most popular in contrast to regular cannabis seeds. With regular cannabis seeds you have an approximately 50% chance of a female plant and about a 50% chance of the male variant. Autoflowering cannabis seeds are also always feminized cannabis seeds.
Write content to help your customers to better understand your products or policies.
Autoflowering seed refers to cannabis seeds that come from plants that automatically transition from vegetative growth to the flowering stage over time, rather than depending on the light cycle. This behavior is a result of the genetics of Cannabis ruderalis, a strain of cannabis that naturally occurs in areas with short summers.
By crossing Cannabis ruderalis with Sativa or Indica strains, breeders have developed seeds that retain the autoflowering trait, as well as the potent effects and flavors of their Sativa and Indica parents. Here are some characteristics of autoflowering cannabis seeds:
- Time-dependent flowering : Autoflowering plants start flowering after a fixed period of approximately 2-4 weeks of growth, regardless of the light schedule.
- Short Life Cycle : Autoflowers have rapid growth and development, with the cycle from seed to harvest often completing within 8-10 weeks.
- Smaller plants : They often remain smaller in size, making them ideal for growing in small spaces or in discreet environments.
- Requires less light : Because they do not rely on light cycles to bloom, autoflowering plants can grow under almost any light schedule, although 18-24 hours of light per day can benefit them without affecting their flowering.
- Less yield : In general, autoflowering plants produce less yield per plant compared to traditional Sativa or Indica strains. Because autoflowering seeds are increasingly being cultivated, the yield has been increasing in recent years. Hence the increase in popularity.
- Resistance to cold and disease : The genetics of Cannabis ruderalis often make them more resistant to colder climates and certain diseases.
Autoflowering seeds are popular with both novice and experienced growers for their simplicity and speed of growth, but it is important to consider size and yield limitations when choosing seeds for your growing project.
CBD & CANNABINOIDS
CBD, also called cannabidiol, is one of more than a hundred organic substances found in cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica. These substances are also called cannabinoids.
The most well-known substance is probably THC, or delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol. People who use weed or hash mainly do so for the 'high' or 'stoned' effect it gives. THC is the substance that provides this effect, CBD does not provide this effect.
INDUSTRIAL HEMP PLANTS FOR CBD PRODUCTION
Many cannabis seeds are developed with THC and associated psychoactive effects in mind. In commercial cannabis (coffee shop weed), CBD is only found in small percentages, but there are also cannabis plants that have a high CBD content.
Industrial hemp plants are therefore used for the development of CBD oil . These contain very little THC, but a lot of CBD.
To explain how CBD can affect the body, we must first look at the cannabis plant where the CBD comes from. The female buds of a cannabis plant contain resin. This resin contains various substances that are also called phyto-cannabinoids (phyto=vegetable) or phyto cannabinoids. These phyto-cannabinoids protect the cannabis plant. This phyto cannabinoid system protects the plant against UV radiation, pests and diseases, among other things.
THE HUMAN BODY & CBD
The human body responds to CBD because we also have our own and natural version of CBD in our bodies. The human body has a similar cannabinoid system of proteins known as cannabinoid receptors. This is called the endocannabinoid (endo=in the body) system.
These proteins can be seen as cannabinoid receptors that are responsible for processing the body's own cannabinoids such as adrenaline, serotonin and melatonin, but also for processing cannabinoids such as THC and CBD . The body is actually already designed to process these substances effectively.
CBD OIL IS EXTRACTED FROM CANNABIS PLANTS
Hundreds of organic substances are found in cannabis plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is - after THC - the most common substance in cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica. CBD oil is produced from industrial hemp fields and is the most well-known and used form of CBD.
Unlike the cannabis plants used to produce coffee shop weed, cannabis plants used to produce CBD oil contain a lot of CBD and very little THC.
CLEAN INDUSTRIAL HEMP FIELDS
It is important that the plants used to make CBD oil grow safely and cleanly in industrial hemp fields. This is the only way to get the purest and best possible product. If the soil is not clean or there are still chemicals or pesticides present, the cannabis plant will absorb this and these substances will eventually end up in the CBD oil.
DIFFERENCE CBD & THC
CBD and THC are both organic substances found in Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. THC (delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol) has a psychoactive effect, CBD (cannabidiol) does not. THC is often used for relaxation and the psychoactive effect, while CBD is often used as a dietary supplement.
THC is the substance in cannabis that provides the psychoactive effect, which means that the user becomes stoned or high. In addition, THC also has narcotic effects. THC is often used to induce a feeling of relaxation.
Many cannabis and cannabis seeds are therefore developed with the psychoactive effect of THC in mind. This is the main reason people use cannabis. The weed you buy in coffee shops often contains a high level of THC and only a small amount of CBD.
CBD does not have a psychoactive effect. The hemp plants used to make CBD oil contain - unlike regular cannabis plants - a high CBD content and a minimal THC content. CBD is produced in many different forms and is often used as a dietary supplement.
THE EFFECT OF CBD ON THC
CBD has an effect on THC. CBD is said to counteract and weaken the psychoactive effect of THC. CBD inhibits these symptoms. If CBD is administered at the same time as or after the use of THC, the effect of the THC may be weakened. If the CBD oil is administered before using the THC, the effect of THC could actually be enhanced.
CBD oil is often based on hemp seed oil or olive oil to which a percentage of CBD has been added, easy to dose thanks to the pipette bottles. All CBD oils can be placed directly under the tongue or you can add them to food, such as a bowl of yogurt or a glass of orange juice.
In our range you will find CBD E-liquids from different brands. CBD E-liquids are available in different flavors and with varying concentrations of CBD.
CBD capsules - with CBD oil or powder - are often used by people who do not like the taste of CBD. CBD drops taste somewhat bitter. There are people who cannot tolerate the taste of CBD oil, become nauseous or even have problems with their esophagus. In these cases, the use of CBD capsules is a good solution. Cannabidiol capsules are also suitable for use when you are at work, on the road or traveling.
CBD is available in many different applications, including in paste form. CBD paste - also called cannabis paste, CBD ointment, cannabidiol paste, hemp paste or pure CBD paste - is thicker than oil and often has a high concentration of CBD.
CBD paste can be taken orally by placing it under the tongue, just like CBD oil . In addition, it is often used as a CBD ointment or cream by spreading the hemp paste on the skin. Just like the oil, our CBD paste is also made from industrial hemp plants that contain little or no THC, so our CBD products have no hallucinogenic effect.
CBD balm contains a high concentration of CBD. CBD cream - also called CBD ointment, balm or lotion - can be used on all parts of the skin and is available in different CBD levels and there are CBD sticks for difficult areas.
CBD TEA & CANDY
CBD food is available in various edibles. CBD food, also called CBD edibles or CBD foods, are often products infused with a certain amount of cannabidoil.
In our range you will find, for example, CBD tea. Cannabidiol tea is made from dried loose leaves of the hemp plant. CBD tea from the Landracer brand is infused with cannabidiol - 10% CBD on 100 grams of tea and contains a number of natural herbs in addition to CBD. Use a tea strainer to steep 2 grams of CBD tea in a 250 ml glass. If necessary, add CBD honey to taste. Other edibles such as CBD lollipops are also infused with CBD.
CBD OIL RAW
There are several ways to extract CBD from hemp: oil extraction, CO2 extraction and alcohol extraction. RAW CBD products are often extracted from hemp plants through a super critical CO2 extraction, so that the cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBV, but also terpenes are retained in the extract.
CBD can be cold and hot pressed from industrial hemp plants. With cold extraction the terpenes remain present, with hot pressing these are the first substances to evaporate. If you cold press these hundreds of cannabidoids from the hemp plant, a hemp paste is created with a high concentration of cannabidoids. This CBD paste contains the various active cannabidoids as they are naturally present in the plant, but in an increased concentration.
To produce CBD oil, this substance is diluted with a base oil, such as olive oil, hemp seed oil or coconut oil.
ENDOCA RAW CBD OIL
The Endoca RAW CBD products are the purest collection of cannabinoids and, in addition to CBD, also contain the molecule CBDa, also called CBD acid. CBDa is mainly found in freshly harvested hemp and CBD-rich cannabis strains. This RAW line is slightly more expensive than the standard line, as these CBD products are more intensive to produce.

VAPORIZING CBD OIL
It is possible to evaporate CBD oil with a vaporizer. An electric vaporizer has an electric heat source (a heating element) that heats the contents of the vaporizer. The vaporizer heats the CBD oil so that it will evaporate. This vapor must then be inhaled. Because no combustion occurs, no harmful substances are released.
CBD OIL VAPORIZER
To vaporize CBD you need a special CBD oil vaporizer. Not all vaporizers are suitable for use with oils. Many vaporizers have been specially developed for use with cannabis, for example, but nowadays more and more vaporizers are coming onto the market that have been specially developed for evaporating (CBD) oil.
The vaporizers for CBD oil are often supplied with special cartridges in which the CBD oil is placed. If the vaporizer only has a mesh in which the herbs are normally placed, this vaporizer is not suitable for vaporizing CBD oil.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF VAPORIZING CBD OIL?
The advantage of vaporizing CBD oil is that dosing the CBD oil is easier. In addition, evaporating CBD oil is a good solution for people who have difficulty taking drops or capsules of CBD oil orally.
You can easily consume cannabidiol in the form of edibles, the so-called CBD edibles. CBD edibles, also called CBD food or CBD edibles, are often products infused with a certain amount of cannabidiol.
CBD TEA, HONEY & CANDY
Cannabidiol tea is made from dried loose leaves of the hemp plant. CBD tea from our brand Landracer is infused with cannabidiol - 10% CBD on 100 grams of tea and contains a number of natural herbs that cleanse your body. Use a tea strainer to steep 2 grams of CBD tea in a 250 ml glass. If necessary, add CBD honey to taste. Just like our CBD lollipops, the CBD edibles are infused with CBD and do not contain THC. It therefore has no psychoactive effect.
SHELF LIFE CBD OIL
We regularly receive questions about how long CBD oil can be kept. CBD oil and other CBD products have the longest shelf life when stored in a cool and dark place. Both light and air have a detrimental effect on the shelf life, so keep the bottle of CBD oil out of sunlight and always close the cap tightly.
STORE CBD OIL
We recommend that customers store CBD oil with a closed cap in a dark and cool place. For example, store your CBD oil in the refrigerator, in a kitchen cupboard or in the basement. Preferably also in the closed packaging. After opening, CBD oil has a shelf life of approximately 1 year. All our bottles of CBD oil have an expiration date. If you stick to this expiration date, you are always in the right place.
STORE CBD OIL
It is not only important to use CBD oil correctly, but also to store the oil correctly. We recommend storing CBD oil in a cool and dark place. (Sun)light can cause the shelf life of the CBD oil to decrease. In addition, it is also important to always tightly close the cap of your bottle of CBD oil. Air also has a negative effect on the operation and shelf life of the oil.
You can store your CBD oil in a dark and cool place where the temperature never rises high, such as in a dark cupboard in the kitchen or basement. A very suitable place to store the CBD oil or CBD paste is in the refrigerator. Here the temperature is constant and cool. You should take into account that the temperature in the refrigerator causes the oil to become less liquid and may flake. This can easily be solved by warming the oil between your hands before use and then shaking well before use.
This is how you ensure that your CBD oil has the longest shelf life:
- Store CBD oil in a dark place away from sunlight
- Store CBD oil in a dark bottle - preferably in the packaging
- Always screw the cap back on the bottle properly, so that the oil becomes airtight.
