More Than Buds is the creation of Alton and Ruth – @YourCannaBuds on Twitter. We are two long time friends and cannabis users who share our experiences with edibles, topicals, transdermals, and more in order to help you make informed choices.

We created a place to share our experiences to help others find information on these new and evolving products. We are based in California and Colorado, with access to products available in both states. We also travel and try products from other states when possible. Our goal is to help you enjoy cannabis edibles, topicals and everything else as much as we do!

If you’d like a more personalized experience, we offer private one-on-one chats for folks who want more tailored information. You can use our Chat Session payment page or feel free to email us for information.

I first started smoking cannabis in my early teens. I have many years of experience with using all forms of cannabis from brownies to bud.

I generally prefer Sativa strains for their more creative, energetic properties. I enjoy Indica primarily in the evenings since I am sensitive to Indica’s relaxing and sometimes sleepy effects. When it comes to other non-flower forms of cannabis such as oils, tinctures, edibles or transdermals, I greatly prefer use of specific types (Indica or Sativa) and love it when the edibles or other items are strain-specific. I understand that the experts disagree if that makes a difference, it seems to make a difference for me.

I live in Northern California with my sweet corgi Julie.

I started smoking pot in high school. I prefer Indicas. Recently, I began to experiment with edibles and patches. As I experimented, I realized that I needed a higher dosage to experience the desired results. Being a long time cannabis smoker, I wanted to try different ways to get high without damaging my lungs further and to be able to use outside of my home discreetly.

I live in the Rocky Mountain foothills of Colorado with my husband, Eddie, two exceptional children and a very spoiled basset hound named Lucy Pancakes.
