Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about showing others love, but what about yourself? Valentine's day is a day set aside to let others know how much we love and care about them. It’s a nice gesture, but how often do you make a special occasion out of loving yourself? And what is self love?

What is the Endocannabinoid System? People that are familiar with legal cannabis have likely heard of the Endocannabinoid system (ECS). You may have heard of it and know what it is, but many still don’t. As a retailer of hemp infused CBD, we at CAASI believe that it’s our job to share information and educate.

We’re vendor members of a non-profit, Leaf411.org. They are...
