San Diego’s Best Marijuana Dispensary: Mankind Cannabis

Obviously, being a San Diego dispensary, we’re going to be a little biased about who’s the best, but there are a lot of really good reasons why we rate ourselves highest when we review the local dispensary options. You’ve got a lot of choices in this area, since medicinal cannabis use has been popular and locally supported for years, even before recreational cannabis came to be in the state of California. That means the local scene is active, competition is tight, and the products featured here are often imitated by brands in other locations. In that active scene, Mankind Cannabis still stands out for a lot of reasons, and once you see what they are, we’re pretty sure you’ll agree with our assessment.

Boutique Shopping for the Connoisseur

In any field, one of the hallmarks of a luxurious shopping experience is the ability to examine the product. Our sensory relationships to the things we enjoy are a big part of the process of figuring out whether we like the thing or not, and for those who are deeply in touch with the varieties of flavor and experience cannabis offers, this is just as true as it is for fans of microbrewing, fine coffees, or wine. Like those other experiences, our San Diego marijuana dispensary is built to put you in touch, smell, and sight of the product. A lot of places lock the stock up and cite security reasons, but a well-rounded approach to customer support and risk management offers a more welcoming environment for everyone, allowing you to get a real feel for the different choices available.

  • Edibles
  • Concentrate
  • Flower
  • Vaping products
  • Topical treatments
  • Unique offerings

In addition to the comfortable atmosphere and sense-indulging product presentation, the stock offered at the Mankind cannabis dispensary in San Diego features some of the newest and most unique offerings in the marketplace along with some of the highest-quality brands to define the standard for cannabis products in California. Among them are chocolate offerings from Kiva Confections, the brand that defined the luxury cannabis edible marketplace by offering the first cannabis chocolates in the state crafted by expert chocolatiers. That combination of new and known quantities makes the shopping experience easy, and the staff’s commitment to customer education helps with both short and long-term customer satisfaction.

Medicinal and Recreational Edibles at Mankind

In addition to the new and classic offerings from top brands like Kiva, the wide selection of edibles offered at our San Diego dispensary provide a few common threads that make controlling your dosage easy, so you can get the exact experience needed.

  • Gummies and edible bars in segmented doses as small as 5mg for micro-dosing
  • Branded recommendations for rejuvenation, meditation, fitness, or relaxation
  • Top fruit, candy, and chocolate flavors from the area’s hottest manufacturers, and baked goods too!

Whether you are looking for a snack that packs a satisfying dose of medicine like the caramel corn from Heavenly Sweet or a purely original treat like the popular honey sticks available from a variety of brands, there’s something for everyone.

Concentrates From Top Brands

Concentrates are in demand for a lot of reasons. Chronic pain patients and other medicinal users love them for their targeted relief that can last for hours or even days when used judiciously, and they pack a potent experience for recreational users as well. If you are new to concentrates, it’s worth learning about their various properties. Wax, shatter, and live resin each have different uses, and the best ways to work with them change depending on your goals. For the aspiring cannabis chef, the right concentrate is the key to infusions that bring both flavor and effective medicine to your home confections. Mankind staff are there to help you figure out the right combination of base strain, extract type, and brand for your needs, so it’s easy to figure out how to change your approach if you are trying a few different uses for your concentrates.

Flower Selection and Competitive Pricing

Even with all the innovation in the marketplace, cannabis flower remains ever-popular with medicinal patients and recreational marijuana fans alike. At the Mankind San Diego marijuana dispensary, you’ll find a variety of strains that rotates with the crop schedule of the area’s major suppliers, providing a rotating selection that always has a little something for every taste. You’ll want to check the top choices available today to find out what awaits you in the store. You can even place an order online now and residents nearby can even get delivery, so you don’t have to worry about whether it’s going to sell out before you get there.

Vape Solutions and Other Unique Offerings

No roundup of the services and selection at this cannabis dispensary in San Diego would be complete without talking about the wide assortment of vaporizer cartridges available from respected, state regulated brands. You’ll find new flavors and classics like watermelon and blueberry from a variety of providers, and medicinal patients will also find a wide range of CBD selections. That’s in addition to revolutionary products like topical treatments and other unique approaches to THC and CBD delivery. You’ll have to come in to see for yourself, and we’re pretty sure that once you get here, you’ll agree with us about who is the best.

How & When to Use Cannabis Tinctures

Tinctures are medications usually dissolved in alcohol. Many cannabis users imbibe via tinctures because they’re easy to take and dose. Plus, users don’t have to worry about the smell, and they receive the benefits of cannabis without having to smoke. Tinctures are often used to help with conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, inflammation, nausea and low appetite, among other issues. Keep reading for a deeper look into how to use cannabis tinctures.

Ease of Use

A cannabis tincture comes in a small bottle with an eyedropper tool. It’s incredibly easy to use. Many people dose with 1 milliliter at a time, putting the dose under their tongue for 15 to 20 seconds. Your dosage amount may vary depending on your weight and the severity of your pain/condition. The under-the-tongue method allows your bloodstream to directly absorb cannabinoids, and the tincture has a nearly immediate effect on your body. To maximize the effects, wait at least 15 minutes to eat or drink anything.

Over time, the alcohol in the tincture can lead to irritation on some users’ tongues. If you do not like the taste of alcohol, try diluting the tincture of cannabis in a small amount of water or juice. Fortunately, the possible irritation and potentially unpleasant taste are the only downsides to cannabis tinctures.

Other people prefer to add their tinctures to meals or snacks via sauces, soups, salad dressings or sherbets. Similarly, you can add one or two droppers’ worth of tincture to a glass of water. That turns the water into tea. These methods are not as instantaneous as the under-the-tongue approach, but they work. The time frame with edible tinctures is akin to that of regular edibles. The effects take longer to kick in, but they can last for hours.

The bottom line is that of choice. If you need instant relief, dose under your tongue. If you prefer for the effects to last a while and do not need immediate relief, take your dose with food or liquid.

Smell Contamination

Whether you take your dose under your tongue or add it to soup, there’s no smell like there is with smoking and vaping. Cannabis tinctures are incredibly discreet. No one should suspect you are using cannabis.

Ease of Dosing

Cannabis tinctures allow you to establish your minimum effective dose. That’s the least amount of tincture you need to help with your pain or condition. You are able to test with one drop at a time, something that is not possible with baked goods and concentrates. By using each drop to maximum effectiveness, you save money and heighten potency. This drop-by-drop dosing also keeps your cannabis tolerance low.

As touched on above, an average person with mild pain may prefer to dose with 1 milliliter at a time. However, new users should take it easy and start with half an eyedropper full for three days. This lets them evaluate how their body reacts. If discomfort occurs, they may want to lower the dosage for the next three days. On the other hand, if users feel no effect whatsoever, they should increase the amount they take.

New users should also wait at least an hour (60 minutes) between doses. Otherwise, they risk an aggregate effect that interferes with determining the minimum effective dose.

Before your first dose, try a tiny drop under your tongue to see how the alcohol tastes. If it’s seriously disagreeable, consider dilution.

Good Substitute to Smoking

Smoking or vaping cannabis can worsen certain health conditions such as asthma. Plus, substances such as tar are often present in smoked cannabis and can increase the risk of lung cancer. Tinctures have these advantages over smoking:

  • Discretion: You can take a dose of tincture at the dinner table, whereas you cannot smoke at the table without everyone knowing.
  • Healthier for Others around You: There is no risk of secondhand smoke.
  • Healthier for You: Your throat and lungs won’t get irritated.
  • Dosage: You’re able to figure out your minimum effective dose.

If you vape, it may take hours to recharge a vape. Plus, vaping can get expensive.

If you are weight-conscious, tinctures have a clear advantage over edibles. You consume fewer calories than you would if eating cookies, candy or baked goods (unless you end up putting the cannabis dose in a soup or sauce you might not have consumed otherwise). The alcohol is about 7 calories per milliliter (an average dose), while a cookie may have as much as 200 calories.

We make it easy to search for tinctures by categories such as pain and anxiety, lucidity, blues away, and vitality. There are also inner glow tinctures to help with the signs of aging. Tinctures mean flexible, accurate and discreet dosing.

Mankind buyers guide to the ultimate Danksgiving Gathering

Thanksgiving, the holiday enjoyed by stoners nation-wide. While some give thanks to things like health and wealth, I like to give thanks to how many different ways I can get the munchies to prep for the big feast!  Who ever thought eating THC-infused food would make you want to eat more food? If edibles aren’t your forte then smoking is always a great option! Rolling joints or taking rips from the bong are great ways to smoke but if you ask me Thanksgiving calls for vaporizing concentrates until all you can concentrate on is mashed potatoes and gravy! Any way you choose to get high, Mankind has your back for everything you need to make this Thanksgiving a Danksgiving!

Edibles – The Tasty Way To Fly

Since Thanksgiving is all about eating let’s start off by talking about edibles. Some people like to get up early and watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade.  If that’s you, why not pair your early morning with a tea? Specifically a Positivi-Tea from Kikoko! This caffeinated tea bag contains 10mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD which is sure to get your morning started on a high note! If 10mg of THC just isn’t enough for you, feel free to pair the tea with our THC infused Honey from Honey Pot.

This 4oz container of 100mg THC infused honey will leave you with plenty of honey to turn any tea into a THC infused one! As turkey day goes on you’re going to want something with a little more strength to it. Now there’s two ways you can go with this… you can take a shot of 100mg of THC with Kwik Ease and really get the day going! Or you can play it cool and microdose yourself into a cozy couch lock until dinner is served. There are plenty of edibles that offer the option to microdose! One of the favorites around Mankind are the Kushy Punches. They are available in Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid and they are amazing tiny little gummy squares of magic! Now if you want something that’ll get the entire dinner table high, we have the perfect thing for you… THC infused butter!! We have a 1000 mg container of butter from Heavenly Sweet that is perfect for making a butter roasted turkey! A THC turkey, I’d never thought I’d see the day.

Herb – Not Just For Turkey Seasoning

Now onto the good old herb. If you and your friends and family like to watch or play football on Thanksgiving, Mankind has the best joints to pass around the huddle. Infused Baby Jeeters are an amazing option because they are short little baby joints dusted in kief that are perfect to smoke during timeouts or halftime. They come in packs of 5 so you have one for every quarter and one extra just in case there’s some overtime.

If you’re watching the game sit back and relax with a Mimosa. Not the drink! Mankind has a flower option with the same name! Mimosa from KNBIS is a great selection. A winner of multiple Cannabis Cups, Mimosa is a new Sativa that has gained a lot of attention in the past year. Mimosa is born of Purple Punch and Clementine, which makes for a very unique flavor profile – strong citrus with hints of Hawaiian punch. Quickly becoming a favorite for many fans across the country, this strain has an uplifting, clear headed effect, often inducing a sense of focus perfect for watching a game. 

Vape – The Discreet Treat

If you’re trying to get high discreetly during the Thanksgiving party then vape cartridges are the way to go! Raw Garden and Outco are two favorites here at Mankind and for good reason. All of their stains have great flavor and equally as great effects. Sneak outside the back door and take a couple puffs of a Raw Garden or Outco cartridge and you’ll almost instantly be taken to a place of thankfulness to whoever made these lovely pens. 

Extract Salads

If you’re looking for a terpy appetizer this Thanksgiving, Mankind has a smorgasbord of tasty concentrates to choose from. Anything from Apex Extractions will fill your lungs with flavorful vapor. If you want something for right before the big meal that will last you for the entire meal, Blue Dream from Apex Extractions should be the one you grab. Blue Dream is a Sativa dominant Hybrid that gives you the best from both the Indica and Sativa side. You’ll be so happy and yet so relaxed as you chow down on everything Thanksgiving has to offer. If you want some true flavor from your concentrates, scoop up some 710 labs anytime you see it at Mankind. Their rosin is some of the most  flavorful and potent concentrates on the market. We must give thanks to all extraction companies but give a little extra to 710 Labs.

In conclusion, Mankind has the stuff that will make you feel extra thankful for a day filled with food and football. Sometimes all you need is a little weed to make you feel grateful. There really are so many options to choose from, you can’t go wrong with any of them. If you have any of the products I mentioned then you’re for sure turning Thanksgiving into a Danksgiving! Have a Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Mankind Dispensary delivers to a 20-mile radius in the San Diego area. Nice! No more traffic jams to sit in, and the benefits for medicinal users can be tremendous. Weed delivery in San Diego means that folks in pain from movement disorders, spasticity, inflammation or other conditions don’t have to put themselves through agony to shop for the cannabis that helps them.

Fast, Easy and Convenient

Whether you’re a recreational or medicinal user, having a San Diego dispensary that delivers means more convenience. Stay in your pajamas, take a longer lunch, spend more time with your family, start reading a new book…the choice is yours. If traffic is bad, it’s not on you to worry about.

We usually start delivery about 12:30 p.m. We deliver for most of the day, often until as late as 9 p.m. However, the cutoff time to put in an order for delivery is 7 p.m. Place your order, and it could be in your hands within hours.

For example, Platinum Vape Spacewalker delivers cerebral effects and relaxes your body. It has 92% THC and tastes of earthy pine and sweet and sour citrus.

You can shop by category (edibles, vapes, etc.), top sellers or price, among other categorizations. Many medicinal users prefer edibles. This form of cannabis tends to provide more pain relief and doesn’t require smoking. In any case, the category descriptions should help you decide which type of weed to order.

Great Option for Medicinal Users

Different ratios of CBD:THC from High Gorgeous

Many marijuana users have anxiety, depression, chronic pain, autoimmune disease or other conditions such as dystonia, multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury. Cannabis helps a good number of users with pain relief. They can sleep and move better, and they enjoy life more. However, they still deal with many issues. It may be nearly impossible or flat-out impossible for them to find the energy, stamina and range of motion to leave home and get in their car or on a bus, and head to a weed dispensary. Our cannabis delivery service means they don’t have to!

One major aim of Mankind Dispensary is to alleviate suffering one patient at a time. We’ll come to you so you don’t have to go out of your way to us.

You can even order online and come into the store to pick up your order. Do it this way, and you save 10%. Similarly, sign up to receive information, and you get $10 off your first visit.

Either way, we want to make it easy for you to arrange delivery, order online or come into the store to shop.

Mankind Kitchen – Brownies & Granola Bars

Homemade Marijuana Edible Treats

Homemade Edibles Done Right

We’ve all heard the horror stories of someone from the 1970s eating “magic brownies” and falling asleep for 3 days. It was a guessing game as to what you’d feel. But these day companies, and California law, have made it easier to dose out edibles. But still, wouldn’t you like to make your own?

The fun thing about making your own edibles is that you can be as creative as you want. Mix whatever flavors you like. Don’t want it to be so strong, dilute your butter or oil with regular butter or oil. The possibilities are endless! Dosing is simple – just divide how many milligrams are in your recipe by the amount you yield, and you should get a close estimate of how strong they will be.

It’s simple to infuse just about anything now a days, from butter, to oil, even honey. There’s the crock pot route, in which you can just throw in as much flower as you’d like (at least an 1/8th) along with some butter and let them get to know each other for about 8 hours. If you’re looking for an easier way, you can purchase butter which is already infused, such as Heavenly Sweet Medibles 1000mg cannabutter. Whatever you’re looking for, from ounces to infuse your own butter, to pre-made butter, Mankind has got you covered. Come in and let us help you become a master edible chef!

About the Author: Dianet is originally from Miami, Fl. She’s been residing in San Diego for about 5 years now.

“I got into baking because of my dad. He worked at a bakery when I was 9 and I’d often go to work with him and help him bake. He loves sweets, so when he stopped baking I started making cakes and other pastries for him. He taught me the joys of combining ingredients I love, and not always following the recipes, which is why I started cooking with cannabis.”
