Morsel – The Most Versatile Spork Ever Created

Product design duo Hadron Gear has just announced Morsel, a versatile utensil that is putting a fresh new spin on the spork.

Hadron’s design team went through countless iterations to develop a truly revolutionary design, one that shined where other sporks disappointed. While camping stoves have made fantastic evolutions over the last 20 years, camping utensils have seen far less innovation. Morsel aims to change that.

Morsel’s long, asymmetric shape is combined with a soft rubber edge that allows it to clean and scrape surfaces of all shapes and sizes – “It’s like a spoon crossed with a spatula.” The ergonomic design makes it easy to scrape every last bit of food, whether it’s on your plate, in your bowl, or wedged down in the corner of a pot or food bag. The strong, full-sized fork includes safe serrated edges for cutting through tough foods.

“We wanted to design a better spork that solved all the shortcomings of conventional sporks and camping utensils. No more stubby forks. No more dripping soup. No more snapped handles. No more dirty hands from deep pots and bags. No more excess food waste on dirty dishes, and no more food scraps for wildlife. Our goal was to solve these problems and combine the solution into a single, elegant utensil.

… Eating should never be the crux of an adventure, so we wanted to make eating just a little bit easier. We always strive for more when we’re outdoors, even if that’s just scraping a much-needed last bite from the bottom of the dinner pot.”

Features of the Morsel Spork:

  • Rubber conformable scraping edge
  • Asymmetric spoon shape fits all shapes and sizes
  • Full-size fork with safe cutting edge
  • Extended length and deep reach
  • Boiling water and dishwasher safe
  • BPA-Free and FDA food-grade materials
  • Ships Spring 2018
  • MSRP $12

Want one? Morsel will be launching on Kickstarter in March 2018 with big discounts for early buyers. Stay up-to-date and learn more by joining Morsel’s email list through their website, ​morselspork.com

About Hadron:

Hadron is a product design duo based out of Portland, Oregon focused on creating better products through thoughtful design. Hadron believes that good designs should solve problems and enhance experiences. The result is Morsel, a clever utensil that makes eating just a bit easier and more enjoyable, allowing meals to be enjoyed until the very last bite.

Introducing Dr. Ganja, The Amazon of CBD and Marijuana Products

Introducing DrGanja.com, a one-stop-shop for over 400 of the best CBD-based products and brands, with weekly additions.

The launch includes the largest collection of Dr.Ganja CBD Hemp Flower, used for smoking, vaping, cooking and extracting to make your own CBD products. The shop is one of the first online retail marijuana marketplaces with the largest selection of products at the best prices. The project launched in 2009, when Egor and David Kolt, two brother entrepreneurs, were running a medical marijuana doctors office out of West Hollywood, where over 100,000 people were evaluated and gained access to a medical marijuana card, to legally obtain medical marijuana from a dispensary.

The dynamic duo later launched GrowSetup (growsetup.com), a one-stop-shop for building out and evaluating indoor hydroponic grow rooms, with over one million square feet built out and evaluated, including some of the largest government permitted facilities in Canada.

Egor says, “As global interest in cannabis grows, so does popular demand for a tool that will allow people to compare, contrast and buy the right cannabis-based products for their needs. That’s where DrGanja.com comes in. In becoming the biggest online marketplace of marijuana-related products with a focus in hemp-based CBD, Dr.Ganja’s goal is to give consumers an invaluable resource: a comprehensive offering of what’s legally available for sale.

Ours is a safe, reliable and easy-to-access online marketplace where both connoisseurs and casual users can confidently search, find and legally buy the cannabis products that work best for them. As the biggest marijuana retailer with the best prices, Dr.Ganja offers visitors a wide variety of peer-reviewed items such as dietary supplements, CBD hemp flower, body care products, oils, pet supplies and so much more all at the best prices, same day fast and free shipping, with affordable international shipping options available.”

The brothers can speak on the following cannabis/CBD hot topics:

  • how to grow the Biggest CBD Marketplace and vet products
  • The growing trend of CBD Hemp Flower and benefits
  • Not all CBD is created equal- what makes a good product
  • CBD Can Make You High – big misconception of it not making you high. CBD does contain trace amounts of THC
  • Dr.Ganja – Americas Favorite Drug Store – the secret of discreet shipping

David says, “All of these products are new– to have this much variety at the prices and service we offer is pretty unique. We also have a CBD Forum and the largest collection of CBD reviews for a variety of different brands and products from actual real people that use these products. I think there is no greater resource to learn about CBD then the Dr.Ganja CBD reviews page. All of our Hemp Flower is individually tested for pesticides, terpenes, and cannabinoids from an accredited lab. These tests are expensive and few people do them. You can also ask questions about products like you can do on Amazon, which is unique. No Hemp site has this option. In fact few eCommerce sites in general have this option”

Egor says, “I want people to understand that not all CBD is created equal. People these days create a CBD label, slap it on, and boom they have a CBD product. It’s just not the case with us. We go through a long vetting process before adding a brand to Dr.Ganja. I want to be the largest cannabis based marketplace out there, featuring the best brands and products and give the new quality brands popping up a voice. Via DrGanja.com/CBDReviews people are discovering new CBD medical benefits every single day. Pain and anxiety relief, beauty, health and so much more, even the best CBD products for pets that deliver results!”

Dr.Ganja the E-store has been open since 2017.

More about David and Egor

Egor was born in Moscow and moved to Los Angeles at a young age, founding Dr.Ganja which was initially a referral service to see an accredited MD, for a medical marijuana card in 2009, evaluating over 100,000 patients. He launched GrowSetup, a one-stop-shop to get a grow room built and setup, consulting over 1 million square feet of space for individuals and companies all over the world. DrGanja.com launched after the rise of CBD-based products and no reputable online store to showcase them. Currently over 400 products and adding more every day.

David’s youth, energy and unique marketing skills positioned DrGanja.com as one of the strongest & biggest online medical marijuana stores. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, and raised in Santa Monica, California, David grew up playing competitive sports on and off the field, in both athletics and in the corporate boardroom. A student of high finance, online marketing, and intricate business dealings for many years, David has worked and interned at several prestigious companies. His financial expertise and marketing skills were developed during these formative years. A master of website development, design and marketing as well as corporate financial matters, David’s position with and contribution to the Dr.Ganja portal is one of three major essentials to the business.

Spring Beauty Heroes at an Affordable Price

A new season means it’s time for a new skincare regime. With the official start to Spring, there’s no better time to begin prepping for the warmer weather. Where to start?  Derma Organics is made with the purest, highest quality, natural ingredients. Think African honey, papaya leaf, and plantain peel along with active vitamins and botanicals that heal your skin…naturally.

The brand was created by someone who knows a lot about challenging skin. Founder Adaaku Iwuajoku endured itchy, burning, weeping infected skin and scalp conditions caused by severe atopic eczema and seborrheic dermatitis. While she longed to use the products her friends used, they only aggravated her condition. Adaaku was in and out of the doctors’ offices with prescribed steroid creams and damaging chemical shampoos that made the conditions worse. However, she found opportunity in chaos with natural products and the healing began. At the tender ago of 9, her boarding school roommate suffered from severe weeping atopic eczema. Adaaku mixed up some creams with botanical oils and applied it every night until the condition improved. It sparked the motivation to help others by creating an affordable, holistic line for the face, body, and hair.

Derma Organics products are handmade, cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free and sourced by ethical trading.
