This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me (Laura Geftman). 

The possession and use of cannabis remain federal crimes, and neither The Calm, Cool & Collected nor any of its partners or affiliates may be held liable for any criminal arrest or prosecution you may experience as a result of your possessing, using, cultivating, manufacturing, or distributing cannabis. Cannabis also remains illegal in many states, and even in those states in which it is legal, there are restrictions on what is and what is not legal as related to cannabis. It is your sole responsibility to determine and comply with all applicable legal or regulatory requirements and restrictions imposed by your locale.

The Calm, Cool & Collected provides information for consumers to educate themselves on cannabis. We use a set of organizing principles designed to enable consumers to better identify cannabis products that are high in cannabidiol (CBD), and low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and showing a preference for consumption without requiring inhalation. We partner with licensed retailers and we encourage retailers to organize their product selection around these principles. However, The Calm, Cool & Collected does not test or certify specific cannabis products, and the retailers shown on this site are solely responsible for the products they sell.
