Mary’s Medicinals secures patent for transdermal marijuana gel

The topical technology took a step forward as Colorado-based Mary’s Medicinals received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for their cannabis-infused gel, used in the company’s Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Pen…

Smith’s offerings are among the most diverse in the sector, focused on a wide variety of cannabinoids and delivery methods, including the now-patented gel.

Sorkin also touts a recent deal with distributor The Green Pet Shop for their Mary’s Pets CBD Gel Pen, which he calls a “customer favorite.” The concept of medical marijuana for pets isn’t new; A Nevada senator actually introduced a bill in 2015 to cover animals who could benefit from cannabis…

Alicia Keys is tired of society’s bullsh*t, unspoken makeup requirements, and she’s not gonna take it anymore. In a recent essay published for Lena Dunham’s feminist website/newsletter Lenny, Keys got personal about her choice to turn to a #nomakeup lifestyle…

Love, love, love this video!
