THC Gummy Flavors

Summer calls for some refreshment that can be soothing enough for the body and mind. The transitional period between winter and summer demands a change in lifestyle and food habits. After a chilling winter, the sudden variation in temperature becomes difficult for people to adapt to the new weather.

During summer, due to extreme sweat among some people, the human body undergoes the problem of dehydration. Dehydration, in turn, leads to dizziness, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. In such cases, foods with high water content stand fruitful in maintaining the body’s average temperature. Experts suggest the intake of foods that are low in calories and are rich in antioxidants.

Numerous brands these days market Oral Rehydration Solutions claiming that they contain essential vitamins and nutrients that seek to maintain the body’s pH levels and regulate temperature. Doctors also suggest Vitamin C supplements to prevent damage from extensive sun exposure.

In addition, the use of refreshment drinks, peppermint chewing gums, and chilled mocktails are in demand these days to beat the heat instantly. People prefer to consume products that may provide a cooling sensation and a sudden energy boost. In this context, the use of THC Gummies emerges as studies show they may function in reducing the physical and mental irritation that follows extreme heatwaves by inducing a natural coolness to the body.

Why Are THC Gummies On Trend?

As an on-the-go solution, gummies are the new day solutions. From boosting energy levels to increasing appetite, Cannabis edibles are hassle-free to consume. Its delicious taste has generated a craze among all age groups. The unique selling point of these gummies lies in their organic composition. While talking about herbal gummies, one factor becomes essential- the price point and availability become an issue. THC Gummies attract consumers for their action on the neural receptors of the consumer.

Can They Help In Cooling Down The Temperature Of The Human Body During Summer?

Though earlier people used to associate them with making an individual high, recent studies indicate that they may outdo themselves in their act of cooling down the body’s temperature. In a study with albino mice, experts used intrahypothalamic injections containing Tetrahydrocannabinol to study the effect of THC in altering the temperature of the animal body.

Experts used the injections at regular intervals on the anterior hypothalamus to check the oxygen production. As we know, oxygen production is vital to the body’s metabolism. An increase in metabolic rate increases energy production, thereby raising the temperature. Experts supposed that THC-infused edibles might help limit excess oxygen production and help maintain a balance between metabolic rate and blood circulation.

THC is a cannabinoid found in Cannabis. Studies show that as a Cannabinoid, THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system and influences the Vanilloid receptors. Vanilloid receptors are responsible for sending back the sensations of pain and heat. Under the influence of THC, these receptors may slow down the ability to sense. As a result, the feeling of extreme heat gets delayed. Tetrahydrocannabinol triggers the cooling sensation by restricting the function of TRPV1 receptors.

Flavors You Should Try This Summer.

The contemporary world puts forward the concept of customization. It means that customers are selective in purchasing their products. THC Gummies offer multiple options to choose from a pile. But the point of confusion is which flavor can serve a better function in providing refreshments during summer. The summer season is when people prefer the intake of fruity flavors, whether in mocktails or milkshakes. The reason being they are light and suitable to try.

Customer survey reports claim that youth demand for peppermints and tropical oranges is high. The craze for lemon, strawberry, watermelon, and raspberry is common among middle-aged people. The flavors that the brand uses are naturally derived. They contain fruit extracts and no artificial colors. Thus apart from taste, it also offers nutritional benefits. Let us dig into the numerous flavors that the brand manufactures.

  • Peppermints

Mint flavors have always been the most preferred flavor in summer. Mint leaf extracts come to the rescue to induce a cooling sensation instantly. They are great as immunity boosters and prevent one from viral infections due to weather fluctuations. Peppermint THC Gummies provide fresh breath. They also relieve an individual from sweat rashes and etching, scars, and blemishes due to clogged pores during summer. They promote oxygen circulation and blow flow, promoting a bearable body temperature.

  • Lemonade

Lemon is a natural source of antioxidants, fiber, and Vitamin c. The consumption of citrus fiber may help with high cholesterol levels. Lemons are great detaining agents. Studies show they brighten skin, provide intense hydration, and control extreme sweating and body odor. Lemon is fruitful in detoxifying the body and thus maintains ph levels. Gummies in lemonade variants can provide instant refreshment by relieving the body from toxins.

  • Watermelon

People hardly know that watermelon may fight cancerous cells. As they have a rich content of Vitamin A, C, B, lycopene, and carotene, they function in preventing cell damage. This nutrient actively participates in the renewal of cells and dead cell removal. The freshness that watermelon gummies provide remains unmatched by other flavors like raspberry and strawberry.

  • Tropical orange

Tropical orange

During summer, people from hot and humid countries sweat a lot. Extreme sweat causes huge potassium loss in the body. As a result, people feel tired and lazy. Oranges are a rich source of potassium. Experts claim oranges contain 75 per cent of the water that instantly cools and nourishes the body. Orange flavored gummies are popular among many people.

Conclusion

Summer freshness associates itself with a light breeze and the blossoming of juicy fruits. In temperate zones, it is an appropriate time to relax. But in tropical weather, it becomes unbearable. As we all know, the earth is witnessing a steady rise in daily average temperature.

To get rid of this extreme summer heat, people these days depend on refrigerants, air coolers, and air conditioners. Greenhouses gases that generate out of cooling agents thereby contribute to global warming. But they are not a healthy way to save ourselves from heat. The harmful carbon monoxide radicals that float around the atmosphere impact our health.

As we breathe, they get trapped in the lungs. Sun exposure causes skin allergies, rashes, and redness. Extreme loss of salt from the body lowers energy levels. In a nutshell, tetrahydrocannabinol-infused gummies may function in helping with the adverse effects of heat on the body. We may incorporate THC Gummies in our diet in general as they can have long-term benefits.

SERAP Drags Buhari to Court for Missing N11trn Electricity Funds

Published

on

SERAP

By Adedapo Adesanya

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit against President Muhammadu Buhari for his refusal to probe allegations that over N11 trillion earmarked for the provision of regular electricity supply since 1999 which it believes “may have been stolen, mismanaged or diverted into private pockets.”

According to the body in a statement, Nigerian cities have repeatedly been plunged into darkness as the electricity grid has reportedly collapsed at least three times in 5 months, and 130 times in 7 years.

According to the World Bank, epileptic power supply costs businesses in Nigeria about $29 billion yearly.

In the suit number FHC/L/CS/1119/2022 filed last week at the Federal High Court, Lagos, SERAP is seeking “an order of mandamus to direct and compel President Buhari to investigate how over N11 trillion meant to provide regular electricity supply has been allegedly squandered by governments since 1999.”

SERAP is also seeking “an order of mandamus to compel President Buhari to ensure the prosecution of anyone suspected to be responsible for the missing electricity fund, as appropriate, and to ensure the tracing and full recovery of any missing public funds.”

It is arguing that, “It is in the public interest to ensure justice and accountability for alleged corruption and mismanagement in the electricity sector, which has resulted in the failure of governments to solve Nigeria’s perennial power problem,” noting that “The staggering amounts of public funds alleged to have been stolen over the years in the sector have had catastrophic effects on the lives of millions of Nigerians, akin to crimes against humanity against the Nigerian people.”

The group noted that, “The failure to trace, find and recover the missing electricity fund is antithetical to the public interest, the requirements of the Nigerian Constitution 1999 [as amended], and the country’s international obligations,” arguing that, “Nigerians have for far too long been denied justice and the opportunity to get to the bottom of why they continue to pay the price for corruption in the electricity sector–staying in darkness, but still made to pay crazy electricity bills.”

SERAP is also arguing that, “Investigating the allegations of missing N11 trillion electricity funds, prosecuting suspected perpetrators and recovering any missing public funds would end a culture of impunity. It would also address persistent collapse of the electricity grid, and improve access to and affordability of electricity in the country.”

It stated that, “Corruption in the electricity sector and the lack of transparency and accountability in the use of public funds to support the operations of DISCOS have resulted in regular blackouts, electricity grid collapse, and unlawful hike in electricity tariffs.”

SERAP is also seeking “an order of mandamus to direct and compel President Buhari to refer to the International Criminal Court all unimplemented reports of corruption in the electricity sector gathering dust on the shelves, and to arrest and surrender those named in the reports to the court for prosecution.”

Joined in the suit as Respondent is Mr Abubakar Malami, SAN, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, while the suit was filed on behalf of SERAP by its lawyers, Mr Kolawole Oluwadare and Ms Adelanke Aremo.

SweepSouth to Battle Fichaya, Others for Market Share in Nigeria

SweepSouth

By Adedapo Adesanya

Johannesburg-based SweepSouth, the home cleaning service startup that was launched in 2014, is looking to hijack some customers from its competitors in Nigeria by offering quality services.

SweepSouth allows people to book home cleaning services at affordable prices and connects them with cleaners they call SweepStars, who are carefully vetted and are professionals with extensive experience in home cleaning.

Traditional domestic service agencies in Nigeria are mostly informal, and people who use these cleaners often have to find them by asking around their neighbourhood but the problem with this approach is that it is difficult to know if the cleaner is experienced.

Things are about to change as SweepSouth’s value proposition will help its customers find a cleaner in minutes and will deliver the best services.

The startup’s expansion in Nigeria is led by its new country manager, Ms Awazi Angbalaga, an operator who has worked across industries in the past eight years.

Ms Angbalaga noted that SweepSouth has been test-running its services in Nigeria for the last two months and that the uptake has been exciting.

“Although we’ve largely been testing out our service here, we have already had our first 300 bookings, and the feedback we’ve received backs our belief that our proposition is compelling to Nigerians. While we’re growing our bookings every week, our focus continues to be providing the best service to our customers,” she said.

At the moment, SweepSouth charges a base fee of N3,400 ($8) for cleaning a one-bedroom apartment and around N7,500 ($18) for cleaning a 3-bedroom apartment. The pricing is at par with what is obtainable with traditional domestic service agencies, which is important for a service which is aiming for mass-market adoption.

But SweepSouth will face competition from those traditional domestic service agencies and newer startups such as Fichaya which are now targeting Nigeria’s young working-class population.

Remote work and a growing class of young tech workers, who are willing to pay gig workers for services that make their lives easier, are powering the home services industry. Other startups in this space even offer home-cooked meals and laundry.

To break into the market, SweepSouth may also look to provide additional services such as its SweepSouth Connect, which links people with a wide range of professional artisans. SweepSouth Connect is already available in Kenya and South Africa.

The startup did not confirm if it will launch its Connect service in Nigeria but it stressed that for now, the focus is to reach mass adoption and provide exceptional service to customers.

At the moment, customers can only make bookings from the SweepSouth Nigeria website, but the startup shared that it will launch its app this month. The app will improve customer experience across the entire process from booking to leaving reviews for the SweepStars they’re matched with.

Buhari Loses Suit to Challenge Electoral Act at Supreme Court

Electoral Act 2022

By Adedapo Adesanya

The Supreme Court has struck out a suit filed by President Muhammadu Buhari and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mr Abubakar Malami, challenging Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act.

On Friday, the case was expunged on the grounds that it lacks the jurisdiction to entertain it and is an abuse of the court process.

A notice for the judgment delivery was served on President Buhari and the National Assembly on Thursday, inviting them to appear before the court today for the judgment.

The President and the Minister of Justice had filed a suit at the Supreme Court, seeking an interpretation of the controversial clause in the Electoral Amendment Act 2022.

In the suit filed on April 29, President Buhari and Mr Malami, who are the plaintiffs, listed the National Assembly as the sole defendant.

There have been several debates regarding Section 84 (12) of the amended Electoral Act 2022 which was assented to in February.

Upon assenting to the act, President Buhari had asked the National Assembly to delete the contended clause, however, the parliament declined the president’s request.

Section 84 (12) of the legislation holds that “no political appointee at any level shall be a voting delegate or be voted for at the convention or congress of any political party for the purpose of the nomination of candidates for any election.”

In their suit marked SC/CV/504/2022 and filed on April 29, 2022, President Buhari and Mr Malami sought an order of the apex court to strike out the section of the Electoral Act, which they argue was inconsistent with the nation’s constitution.

According to the court document, the plaintiffs contend that the Section 84(12) of the Electoral (Amendment) Act, 2022 is inconsistent with the provisions of sections 42, 65, 66, 106, 107, 131, 137, 147, 151, 177, 182, 192 and 196 of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, (as amended), as well Article 2 of the African Charter on Human and People and Peoples Rights.

The plaintiffs further contended that the constitution already makes provisions for qualification and disqualification for the offices of the President and Vice President, Governor and Deputy Governor, Senate and House of Representatives, House of Assembly, Ministers, Commissioners, and Special Advisers.

They urged the Supreme Court to make: “A declaration that the joint and or combined reading of section 65, 66, 106, 107, 131, 137, 147, 151, 177, 182, 192 and 196 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, (as amended), the provision of Section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act, 2022 which also ignores Section 84(3) of the same Act, is an additional qualifying and/or disqualifying factors for the National Assembly, House of Assembly, Gubernatorial and Presidential elections as enshrined in the said constitution, hence unconstitutional, unlawful, null and void”.

However, in its decision on Friday, the Supreme Court held that President Buhari, having assented to the bill on February 25 2022, cannot turn around to challenge the same act.

In a unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the court said allowing the suit to have its way will amount to approbating and reprobating at the same time and no court of law shall allow that.

The apex court unanimously agreed that President Buhari lacked the jurisdiction to bring the suit before it because of the nature of the reliefs sought.
