Everest Delivered My Cannabis and I’m Never Turning Back

Everest Apothecary’s Delivery service started out during COVID-19 as a response to increased demand, here is the experience you get as a customer.

There is nothing more satisfying than clicking a few buttons and having something delivered to your doorstep. In the pre-COVID world, the only time you could get something delivered in Albuquerque was when you ordered food. In a post-COVID world, you can get marijuana delivered to your doorstep. 

Did you hear that? You can literally sit at home, order your medicine from your computer, and never have to leave your house to pick it up. Okay, that was a bit of a lie. You WILL have to leave go to your front doorstep to sign the receipt, but I digress.

I feel like there are two types of people during this pandemic, the ones who are working (and feel so grateful that they’re able to work, that they are working overtime to prove their worth to their team/company or growing their personal business) and the ones who are not (shout out to all of you that have been making masks and making the most of this time). 

I fall into the former in fact, so much so that I currently have a semi-permanent indent of my chair pattern in my butt. That being said, I NEED some cannabis but don’t seem to have the time to GET said cannabis. I saw an email from Everest Apothecary about their cannabis delivery and decided I had nothing to lose. I tried it out so you don’t have to. I’m going to go over the entire process so you know what to expect. Hold on to you Pantalones because it’s about to get….

Incredibly Simple.  

I am not a paid sponsor. I am just an individual who either doesn’t have a lot of spare time or has terrible time management skills (I’ll let you be the judge). Either way, I needed something that was simple, easy, and convenient. Below, you will find the 10 steps I experienced when ordering my medical marijuana delivery. I hope this outline gives you a better idea of what to expect when you order online from Everest Apothecary. 

  1. Delivery Menu: The delivery menu from I Heart Jane was easy to maneuver. I like to stick to 1:1 CBD: THC strains because I have low tolerance, and I was able to find the high CBD strains quickly. I was even more excited to see that one of their new CBD dominant strains, B4 was also available. Initially, I was bummed when I scrolled through the edible options and couldn’t find a 1:1 so I added a 200 mg chocolate bar (more on that later).
  2. Add To Cart: I added everything to my cart and made sure to add in my FREE ½ gram pre-roll. Everest is constantly offering different promotions for those using the delivery service. Who am I to say no to a free pre-roll?! 
  3. Decision to Order: I’m a cart camper. I put hundreds of dollars of items in my online carts and then I let it sit them sit for an undisclosed period of time until I forget about them. I put items in my Everest cart a few days before I actually ordered. Big mistake, this was the most simple online delivery I’ve ever done. 
  4. Delivery Time: You get to pick your delivery time slot. ARE YOU LISTENING, PAPA JOHNS? Everest isn’t here to play games with you. They aren’t going to make you guess when your order will be delivered, they’re waiting for you to tell them when to deliver it. Talk about convenience. It was about 3:30 when I ordered and I chose to have it delivered between 5:00 and 6:00 pm (that was the earliest option).
  5. Enter Information: You can order online even if you’re not a current Everest patient. All you need is a photo of a government-issued ID, and a front and back photo of your medical card. They do remind you that if the address they’re delivering to is different than what’s on your ID, you will have to provide proof of residency. AKA you can’t get your medical marijuana delivered to your friend’s house, just your own. 
  6. Debit or Credit: You don’t pay until you receive your order. They don’t take cash (I mean, who has cash these days anyways? Sigh… we miss you, bartenders) but, you can pay with any debit or credit card. 
  7. Delivery Tracker: You know when you order Dominoes and then you get to watch the updates live on your computer? Well, guess what. Everest Apothecary has the same thing. I watched as they verified my identification, prepared my order, and then sent it out the door. For someone claiming to be as busy as I did earlier, was this worth watching the tracker fervently? Perhaps not, but while in a pandemic…
  8. Quicker Delivery: As soon as my order was verified, I received a text confirmation and a phone call from my new friend, Marc. He told me that he got my order and wanted to know if I wanted him to drop off my medicine even earlier. “HELL YES I DO, MARC!” I told him excitedly. He told me he would be there around 4:20 pm (I know, the irony). He also double-checked my order, I told him I would have loved to order a Pax Pod vape along with the green apple 1:1 cartridge. (The Pax Pod is one of the coolest vape pens I’ve ever seen. You can control your temperature, dosage, and more from an app on your phone. Plus it’s incredibly discrete.) Do you know what Marc did? He was able to customize my order and switch my total so that I got the pax pod, the cartridge, and the B4 flower. That is what I call customer service!
  9. Discretion: I live in a condo with a bunch of 60-70-year-old conservative busybodies that still believe marijuana is a gateway drug so I didn’t want my new friend Marc pulling up in a delivery car that screamed: “I AM GOING TO SMOKE THIS” since my nosey neighbors would see it and complain that I was ‘using drugs’ in the condo. (Karen, you don’t want to come across me in the elevator if I’m on a high anxiety level and I don’t have my medicine. I will rip your wrinkly old ear off with my teeth and I won’t even feel bad about it.) Thankfully, Marc informed me that their deliveries are discrete. The cars are unmarked and the entire process is incredibly low key. My medicine even came in a brown sandwich bag. For all they know, Everest Apothecary could just be delivering a special snack. 
  10.  Accurate Delivery Time: At about 4:10 pm, I received a text message alerting me that my order was 10 minutes away. I put on my mask, grabbed a squirt of my hand sanitizer, and walked downstairs. At 4:20 on the dot, Everest called me to tell me what car to look for. Marc and his delivery buddy get out of the car. We say our pleasantries through our masks as they double-check my ID and my medical marijuana license. They swipe my card, hand me my receipt and we parted ways. 

I was able to go from ordering to receiving my order in less than two hours. I didn’t have to leave my house and more importantly, I didn’t have to take more than a 5-minute break from working to pick up my order. This delivery service is convenient, simple, and incredibly discrete. I cannot wait to finish my medication and do another online order. This is the first time I will not be cart camping. See you soon, Marc!!

What to Expect When You’re Getting Your Medical Marijuana Card

If you have thought about getting a medical marijuana card but didn’t know what to expect at your appointment (and beyond) this article is for you.

Getting a marijuana card can be nerve-wracking if you’ve never done it and you don’t know what to expect. I (27-year-old female, nonsmoker, nondrinker) decided to get a medical marijuana card to help with chronic lower back pain. I did extensive research to look up what to expect but realized there was nothing that answered all of the questions I had.

This article is going to take you through the process of getting a medical marijuana card for the first time. I asked the doctor a bunch of questions so you can go into your medical marijuana prescription appointment knowing things that I wish I had known before.

You’ll learn about why I decided to get a medical marijuana card (even though I don’t drink or smoke), what conditions certify you for a medical marijuana card, what medical marijuana doctors can diagnose you with on the spot, how long your medical marijuana card is good for, and how long it takes your medical marijuana card to ship. I’m hoping that this article can be as useful to you as learning this information was for me.

Let’s get to know each other a little bit better.

If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you don’t have your medical marijuana card and you’re interested in learning more. We already have that in common.

I’ve had lower back pain since I was a teenager. When I was younger, the doctors told me it was from the sports I had been playing and my posture. When I got to college, each doctor I went to told me a different story. I tried acupuncture, chiropractors, stretching and yoga, muscle relaxers, you name the ‘solution’, I’ve tried it. Every doctor told me their diagnosis was the correct one and each time I would be filled with hope… until I tested out the solution that didn’t work. The back pain would sometimes be so intense that I would have to take a break from work until the wave passed.

Finally, a friend suggested that I try to get my medical marijuana card. Perhaps instead of medication or pill acting as a bandaid to the problem, medical marijuana would help relieve some of that chronic pain by allowing my body and muscles the chance to relax. For someone who doesn’t smoke, drink or really do much else besides work and explore the outdoors (I know, I’m probably really selling you on how fun I am), one might wonder, is a medical marijuana card the right choice for my chronic pain?

There are many reasons to go with legal cannabis usage, here are 6 of them:

  • Safe Products – You know these flowers and products are being cared for in a safe, state of the art facility, and regulated for potency. You won’t have to worry about any harmful additives or special surprises (not the good kind).
  • Natural Treatment – Everyone is different but cannabis offers a natural way for your muscles, body, and mind to relax. Cannabis buds (flowers) are from a strain of hemp plants, which can be found in nature.
  • Variety of Treatment Options – You can ingest your marijuana in whichever way is the most comfortable for you. There are salves, vape pens, edibles, pills, tinctures, prerolls, oil, wax, and much more.
An Everest Apothecary Display Case
  • Educational Staff – The staff at any dispensary (I may be biased, but the staff at Everest is some of the best) is incredibly educated on the products they offer. You can go in, explain your symptoms and what you’re looking for. They will always answer any questions you have and give you their recommendation. Trust me when I say I stress tested the number of questions one could ask. They answered ALL of them.
  • Daily Deals – I can’t speak for the other dispensaries, but I joined Everest’s email list and they offer different discounts for every day of the week. I’ve never worked with an outside cannabis consultant, but I just have a feeling that they aren’t as big on ‘Happy Hour Pricing’ as a regulated dispensary. They also offer deals on their other products, such as vape pens and tinctures.
  • Better Than Pills – When I went to get treatment for my chronic pain, the suggestion was always a pain killer or muscle relaxer pill with a laundry list of side effects. Each had a warning about becoming addicted, suicidal, nauseous, depressed, drowsy, anxious, and a handful of other fun side effects. Marijuana was presented as an a la carte option. No side effects, except the ones you’ve been looking for.
  • Specific Dosage – You can get super specific dosages with anything you’re looking for. You can do CBD/THC hybrid EVERYTHING. If you’re concerned about too much THC, you can get a product that has more CBD than THC for a more relaxing effect without the head or body high. (Pst. I was told to ask about custom chill pills at Everest… passing it on)

There are so many more reasons why getting your medical marijuana card is a great option but let’s move on.

I nervously made my appointment with a recommended Nurse Practitioner, Kathy. Getting an appointment was simple. I just called the number on Everest’s website, left a voicemail letting them know I was interested in getting my medical card and received a call back from 420 Connect after about 4 hours.

Once my appointment was set, I felt nervous. I felt like I was cheating the system by getting a medical marijuana card. Did I really need it?! With great power comes great responsibility… I felt like the nerdy kid sneaking into the college party. Can I get in trouble for this? Will people be able to sense that I have my card? I tried to let the nervous nerdy, straight edge kid doubts wash over me and waited not-so-patiently for my appointment.


One week later, I walked into Everest Apothecary was instantly greeted by a friendly staff member that led me over to the waiting area. Not even 5 minutes later, Nurse Kathy came to get me.

We sat down and I explained some of my symptoms, lower back pain transferring into abdominal pain so severe that it would distract me from work. I had 6 years of doctor visits and recommendations on solutions. I gave her approval to access my medical history so she was able to validate and qualify me. She explained to me that in order to qualify for a medical marijuana card, you must have chronic pain or have had at least one of the symptoms below for 3 months or more.

Here is the list of symptoms that qualify you for a medical marijuana card:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease,
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS),
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Damage to the Nervous Tissue of the Spinal Cord (with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity)
  • Epilepsy/Seizure Disorder
  • Friedreich’s Ataxia
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C Infection currently receiving antiviral therapy
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hospice Care
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Inclusion Body Myositis
  • Inflammatory autoimmune-mediated Arthritis
  • Intractable Nausea/Vomiting
  • Lewy Body Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Opioid Use Disorder
  • Painful Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder:
    • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is the only symptom that can get diagnosed during your medical marijuana appointment. What that means is that if you don’t have records that indicate you have been suffering from PTSD, you can get diagnosed in house.
    • As of right now, you do not qualify if you have PTSD from COVID-19 BUT if you do have PTSD that has lasted over 3 months and has been retriggered by COVID-19, you could qualify.
  • Severe Anorexia/Cachexia
  • Severe Chronic Pain
  • Spasmodic Torticollis (Cervical Dystonia)
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

As she pulled my medical records, she explained the process and the medical marijuana card in more depth so I fully understood what I was getting myself into (Spoiler: It’s even better and cooler than I thought).

  1. Medical Marijuana is a Prescription – She started by letting me know that having a med card is like having a prescription for a medication. Your card is discreet and although they do not protect you from drug testing at a job, you get the same discretion as you would picking up medicine from CVS. The only people who know your subscription are the people who need to know, and those filling it.
  2. New Mexico Medical Marijuana Cards are Good for Three Years – Kind of. They used to distribute you a new card every year with your renewal, but they wanted to save on plastic. Now, your card is good for three years BUT you still need to recertify once a year. You will see your recertification dates on your card.
  3. You can Recertify Over Video – Recertifications don’t need to be in person anymore (I guess there are some silver linings from COVID). 420 Connect has a video option. You cannot do a video visit if you’re using them for the first time, but if you’re an existing patient you have the green light.
  4. All You Need to Renew Your Card is a VALID Drivers License – Seems simple enough (some people are having issues because of COVID and MVD shutdowns), but those license expirations can sneak up on you. Make sure your license is valid before going into to get your medical marijuana card.
  5. Once You Qualify, You ALWAYS Qualify – The state grandfather’s you in no matter how long it’s been since your card has expired. What that also means is that if you qualified because of PTSD, you don’t have to go through any past trauma again just to get recertified. You are set for life.
  6. Your Card Takes 30 Days on Average to Ship – I know, this one kind of sucks. You get to check out the dispensary when you go in for your appointment but then you don’t get to go back until you have your card (wamp WAMP) but note that it’s coming from the state health department so there isn’t much anyone can do to expedite that. Thankfully, you only have to do this every three years.
  7. Appointments Are 30 Minutes or Less – Renewal appointments are 15 minutes and first-time patient appointments are 30 minutes. You can come in and get qualified on your lunch break! In a world where going to the doctor’s office can take up an entire day, this is a well-welcomed change.

She pulled my records, printed off some paperwork that I signed that verified everything I had told her, addressed it, and sent it off. 30 minutes later, I was trying to catch a glimpse of all the products Everest had to offer on my way out. I am currently in the waiting period for my medical marijuana card but I hope to keep you updated when I receive it in the mail, when I go into the dispensary and purchase my first few items, and then when I test out Everest’s new delivery service.

Stay tuned for more of my journey into the world of medical marijuana!

CBD 101: The Basics You Need to Know

We can agree that CBD has popped up EVERYWHERE these past few years, right? Right. Ok, we’re all friends here now, so let’s jump right in with the burning question…

“What on EARTH is CBD and why do I keep seeing it everywhere?”

Not to worry, you are not the only one who has noticed an uptick in CBD products outside of cannabis products. 

Recently, CBD products have been popping up everywhere. From your local Whole Foods featuring CBD lotion at the registers to the coffee shop down the street bragging about their CBD lattes to salons and spas offering CBD soaks and facials, these products have become the next big trend in health.

“But isn’t CBD a type of weed?? How can they sell it in regular stores??”

Well, yes and no. Although CBD is derived from the same plant, it is completely different. So what is CBD exactly?

That’s what we’re here to discuss. After this article, you will understand what CBD is, the benefits of CBD, the difference between THC and CBD, how to use CBD daily, and the different types. 

Let’s start with the origin story. Where did CBD come from?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, was first discovered in 1940 and is one of and over 100 known cannabinoids in cannabis plants. It makes up to 40% of the plant extract, and unlike its cousin, THC, it’s non-psychoactive, which means that it doesn’t cause the high THC does. Many people prefer CBD because there is no ‘high’ associated with the CBD products, making them the go-to for people who just need pain relief, or who want to relax a little. 

Did you know that CBD was discovered about 20 years before THC but that THC has dominated research until very recently? 

Now that we are spending more on researching CBD, we are finding that there are a multitude of ways to use CBD to assist in finding non-invasive and natural solutions for mental and physical ailments. 

These studies have assisted in the fight to end the stigma around CBD and as the studies (and potential benefits) become more publicized, CBD products have exploded. It seems like just overnight, you can get everything from a CBD Bath Bomb to a CBD coffee at your local coffee shop. 

So, why can you purchase CBD everywhere but not THC?

That’s a great question. Let’s look at the differences between CBD and THC. 

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of the cannabis plant. It can be extracted from hemp plants (cannabis plants that contain less than 0.3 percent THC) or marijuana plants (cannabis plants that contain higher concentrations of THC). 

Although both THC and CBD interact with your brain and body receptors, they do so in very different ways. CBD does not bind with your receptors in a way that can make you feel ‘stoned’ or ‘intoxicated’ like THC, and it can actually lessen the effects of THC on your body!

CBD can be ingested or smoked, just like THC but offers a solution to those who want the benefits of cannabis without having to get high. 

However, CBD is still not available everywhere, but you will be able to find it in any states that have marijuana legalized medically and/or recreationally. Additionally, CBD and THC are used to treat different conditions. 

CBD is used to help with conditions such as seizures, inflammation, pain, psychosis or mental disorders, IBS, nausea, migraines, depression, and anxiety. THC is used to help with conditions such as pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea, and anxiety. Obviously there is a little bit of overlap (they both come from the same plant!), but one you can find browsing the aisles of a Whole Foods and the other (THC) you still have to go to a specific store or make sure you are legally allowed to purchase it. 

If you are specifically looking for a CBD product, it will be marked as such. Anything containing THC will have a warning label letting you know that there is THC in the product. 

You should now be able to understand the difference between THC and CBD. With that knowledge, let’s dive deeper into learning about what CBD can do for you.

What CBD Can Do For You

There are many ways that CBD can help you. Are you noticing muscle pain? Perhaps you have anxiety or depression? 

Many people claim that CBD products can help with physical and mental issues such as muscle pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Often times, those claims are backed up by non-scientific anecdotal evidence, but some research facilities (like Harvard and the University of California) are finding hard scientific proof that CBD can help with mental illnesses and pain. In 2018, the FDA approved of CBD medication called Epidiolex, meant for the treatment of certain types of epilepsy. That is the first medication to market that has CBD in it as part of treatment. 

CBD products can be used to help ease the aches and pains that are generally caused by injuries and diseases. Which is why about 40% of people who use CBD are using it to manage pain. CBD’s anti-inflammatory effect makes it perfect for people with arthritis and general muscle soreness. It has also been known to help ease aches and pains from treatment for cancer patients. 

CBD has also helped those suffering from mental illnesses, such as anxiety and depression, manage their symptoms. CBD has been shown to have a natural calming effect that helps with relaxation. There have also been studies that have shown the benefits of CBD in those suffering from autism, schizophrenia, and alcoholism. has a natural calming effect that helps people relax and can calm their minds. 

In case that isn’t enough, there have also been some claims of specific CBD creams helping with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, while specific oils and tinctures have been found to help with slow digestion or IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome).

There are so many CBD products, and most of them are constantly being hailed for the variety of positive benefits they offer. So now comes the big question, what CBD product is right for you?

For the most part, the CBD product you use comes down to personal preference. Asking yourself these questions can help you figure out what you want: 
  • Do I want to ingest the CBD, or would a topical be okay? 

Some people don’t like the idea of eating or drinking CBD. In this case, you might prefer a topical CBD product, rather than an oil, vape or pill. 

  • What do I want to achieve by using CBD? 

Some people use CBD for anxiety and depression. Others use it for pain relief, and other people use it to relax, find a calm headspace and get to sleep. What you need it for could determine what the best CBD product is for you.

  • How quickly do I need to see results? 

If you’re in pain or you can’t sleep, you might want to find relief in ten minutes rather than an hour. However, if you just want to relax, it can sometimes be beneficial to wait a little while.

As you choose your CBD product, just keep in mind that the main difference between all these different forms of CBD is the speed in which you’ll feel relief. Now that you know what CBD can do for you, it’s time to pick the right product.

There are five main CBD products. 

CBD can be delivered orally and topically. Of those two delivery methods, there are five basic forms of CBD products. The first is oils and tinctures, the second is vape, the third is edibles and the fourth is capsules/pills. The fifth is the only topical method: creams and lotions.

  • Oils and Tinctures

Oils and Tinctures are one of the easiest ways to take CBD and are a good choice for those who aren’t able to take pills or capsules but don’t want to vape, however, it can take anywhere from one to six hours before taking effect but can last from four to six hours. 

 Generally, these are placed under the tongue because the oral mucosa (the slightly rounded area where your tongue meets the floor of your mouth) has hundreds of tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds, which allows the CBD to take effect quickly. These oils are made primarily of CBD oil, but they also often include other essential oils, vitamins, and extracts for added benefits.

This is a great option for those looking for a quick and easy way to enjoy CBD.

  • Vape 

Vape is probably one of the most popular CBD products. This is a good choice for people who want immediate relief, and don’t mind smoking CBD. It takes as little as ten minutes for CBD to take effect, but it only lasts about two to three hours. 

Vaping involves inhaling vaporized CBD directly into your lungs through a vape pen or e-cig. You can get CBD to vape in a variety of flavors and dosages, but you do have to have your own vape pen. 

This is a great option for those who are interested in smoking something less intense than THC.

  • Edibles

Edibles are a fun, casual, and discreet way to take CBD. Often times, CBD oil is used to create CBD butter or jam, but it can also be added directly into things like pasta, lattes, brownies, and more. Edibles take anywhere from two to three hours to take effect but can produce some of the longest-lasting effects. Some have mentioned experiencing effects for up to FIVE days after ingesting the CBD edibles.

This is a great option for someone interested in taking CBD but wants to enjoy the benefits without any of the taste. 

 *With Edibles, it’s important to keep track of your dosage, so never take a CBD edible that doesn’t have the amount of CBD in it on the label.*

  • Pills/capsules

CBD pills and capsules are not the most common method, but still a great alternative for those who want to effortlessly incorporate CBD into their daily lives. CBD pills can help stomach and bowel issues and more recently, the treatment of seizure disorders (The Food and Drug Administration recently approved Epidiolex, the first high-potency CBD drug to treat seizure disorders.)

It’s incredibly easy to manage dosage with pills and capsules, but it takes around five to six hours to start feeling the effects of CBD. 

This is a great option for those who want continuous and prolonged effects of CBD.

  • Topicals

CBD topicals are everywhere! They come in the form of lotions, balms, salves, and ointments for facials, bath soaks and scrubs. CBD oil is infused into these products and they are absorbed through your skin where the CB2 receptors in your skin cells (a specific receptor that’s designed to accept cannabinoids) absorb the CBD.

CBD-infused topicals are generally used to treat muscle pain, muscle spasms, and joint pain. They tend to take longer to take effect, but the pain-relieving effects last for at least five hours. All you have to do is apply the CBD lotion, cream or ointment to an area to get a localized release. Studies have shown that some topicals can also treat some skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.

This is a great option for those who enjoy baths or others can use CBD for topical issues. 

Time to wrap it up.

You’ve learned about the different ways to ingest CBD and you know now that the biggest difference between these five CBD products is the speed of delivery and how long the effects last. We just have one last note…make sure you know how many milligrams of CBD you are taking before consuming a CBD product and ask a doctor before proceeding with the use of any CBD in combination with prescribed medicine.

It’s important to know that CBD is not a treat-all-end-all. Much like common painkillers, different forms of CBD may have different results depending on the person. It may take some time for you to explore what CBD product works best for your body.

We hope that this article helped you learn a little bit more about CBD and which CBD products are right for you.

If you have your medical card and are looking to purchase either CBD, THC or Hybrid products please find an Everest location nearest you (or scope us out online). We are always happy to answer any additional questions.

Everest Apothecary Opens Third Location

ALBUQUERQUE – Everest Apothecary announced the opening of its third location and the only medical cannabis dispensary in the South Valley.

“Medical cannabis has been proven to provide relief to people with a variety of conditions including epilepsy, cancer, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, MS and many others,” said Rich Miller, Everest Apothecary Director of Sales.

“The South Valley has been grossly underserved, and we are thrilled to be the first medical cannabis company to open in the area. Our experienced team will be able to provide education as well as product knowledge to the residents of the South Valley.”
