Reducing Side Effects from Cannabis with a Smartphone App

Have you ever experienced side effects from cannabis? Common cannabis side effects include paranoia, dizziness, red eyes, cottonmouth, and more. In this article, we will discuss side effects from cannabis and explore how you can use the Jointly app to mitigate or eliminate them.

Purposefully Consume Cannabis to Eliminate Side Effects

Weed is about more than getting high. For example, have you ever used cannabis to help you sleep at night? What about to stimulate your appetite?

The cannabis plant produces a variety of compounds that you can help you achieve your wellness goals. Whether you want to sleep better, eat more, replace other substances, melt into your couch at the end of a long day, or energize and uplift your mind, there is a cannabis product that is perfect for that goal. And the Jointly app can help you find it.

Jointly is a new cannabis wellness app that helps people discover purposeful cannabis consumption so they can achieve their wellness goals with cannabis and CBD. On the Jointly app, you can find new cannabis products, rate products based on how well they helped you achieve your goals, and track and optimize your cannabis consumption so that you can enjoy your ideal experience every time.

To enjoy your ideal experience every time, you need to figure out how to eliminate or mitigate adverse side effects from cannabis.

How the Jointly App Improves Your Cannabis Experience

Have you ever noticed that the same cannabis product can produce different effects (or side effects) from one day to the next? Or that a weed strain that consistently stimulates your mind has a sedating effect on your friend? How is it possible that the same product has such varied effects?

Cannabis experts believe that there are at least 15 factors that can impact your cannabis experience. These factors include your dose, your hydration level, how much sleep you got the night before, whether you are alone or with friends, whether you are using cannabis in the morning or at night, and more.

When you track your cannabis consumption on the Jointly app, you can report on these 15 factors to determine how each factor impacts your experience. Over time, the Jointly app will use your reports to make suggestions that will help you get more consistent results and eliminate adverse side effects from cannabis.

How Does the Jointly App Help You Eliminate Marijuana Side Effects?

Cannabis can help you sleep better, eat more, relax after a long day at work, stimulate and uplift your mind, enhance your creativity and focus, and reduce mild daily stress. Purposeful cannabis consumption is a highly effective wellness tool that can help people improve their health and wellbeing.

However, some people might experience adverse side effects when using cannabis to achieve their wellness goals. The Jointly app can help you mitigate these side effects by teaching you how to turn the dials on the 15 factors that can impact your cannabis experience.

For example, perhaps you will notice that when you consume cannabis after a night of poor sleep, you are more likely to experience anxiety and paranoia from weed. Or you may find that when you exercise before, during, or after consuming cannabis, you don’t experience any disorientation or coordination issues from weed.

Does Smoking Weed Have Side Effects? Do Edibles Have Side Effects?

Most marijuana side effects are caused by THC. So, any cannabis product that contains THC may cause these side effects.

However, different weed ingestion methods have different pharmacokinetics, meaning that different ingestion methods can produce distinct effects and side effects, and even objective measures like levels of THC in the blood.

When you eat an edible, you digest it. As a result, the THC goes through first-pass metabolism in your liver, where it is converted into a more potent compound: 11-OH-THC. This metabolite has greater and longer-lasting psychoactive effects, which may cause you to experience greater or longer lasting side effects.

In short, different ingestion methods may produce different side effects, but any product with THC has the potential to cause adverse side effects for some individuals. You should choose the ingestion method that is best suited for your wellness goals.

Does CBD Have Side Effects?

While the side effects of CBD are much milder than marijuana side effects, there are still some potential side effects to watch out for. Some people have reported experiencing gastrointestinal distress, dry mouth, reduced appetite, drowsiness, and fatigue after using CBD.

How to Mitigate Side Effects from Cannabis

Here are some general suggestions on how to mitigate side effects from cannabis, and then we will explore some specific suggestions about how to fix cottonmouth.

Try a new product

Different cannabis products will contain different chemical compounds like cannabinoids and terpenes, which may exert distinct effects. Use Jointly’s Product Finder to discover new top-rated products.

Try a new ingestion method

Additionally, the way you ingest a product will change how it affects you. Smoking a joint of cannabis flower may produce slightly different effects from vaporizing it, although both ingestion methods involve heating cannabis and inhaling the active compounds.

Each ingestion method has its own advantages and may produce different effects or side effects. To learn how different weed ingestion methods produce different effects, read our article The Best Way to Take Cannabis for Wellness Purposes.

Add in a companion food

Did you know that weed companion foods can enhance your cannabis experience in different ways? Mangoes, dark chocolate, green tea, and thyme are all weed companion foods. Chemical compounds in these foods may alter your cannabis experience, and potentially mitigate adverse side effects like drowsiness.

To learn about these foods and how to add them into your cannabis wellness routine, check out our article Do These Foods Get You Higher?

Find your minimum effective dose

Most adverse side effects from cannabis are caused by ingesting too high of a dose of THC. While you cannot die from ingesting too much cannabis, a THC overdose is a real risk. The single most effective way to mitigate side effects is to microdose and titrate up your dose until you find the minimum effective dose of cannabis to get the effect you want.

Turn the dials on 15 factors

According to cannabis experts, there are at least 15 factors that can impact your cannabis experience and play a major role in whether a cannabis product is giving you the feeling you want, or producing adverse side effects like cottonmouth. These 15 factors include your dose, the time of day you ingest, how much sleep you got the night before, and more.

The Jointly app lets you to track the 15 factors that can impact your cannabis experience. As you optimize how you consume cannabis, your favorite cannabis products will perform better for you.

BriaR Breathe Fire Cover Art from Nick Ponisi for use by 360 Magazine

BriaR Releases Single and Video – Breathe Fire

Rising singer, lyricist, and performer BriaR has released her debut autobiographical single “Breathe Fire” along with its intergalactic, trance-inducing music video. The first single off of her debut EP Finding BriaR out this fall. Stream “Breathe Fire” here. Press here to watch the music video. The track details BriaR reminiscing about leaving a message on her lovers answering machine, revealing her deepest secrets and expressing her fear of being misunderstood. Finding BriaR is the debut EP from the multi-talented newcomer who grew up in a family of artists, musicians and entertainers, an ambitious musical hybrid that coins a brand-new genre – psychedelic soul – combining R&B, hip-hop and dance with art-rock, punk and hooky pop. BriaR’s breathy vocals are at once sensuous and intimate, creating a vibe that seduces our ears, while stimulating the body’s instincts to get up and move.

“The song came about during the pandemic. I was going through a tough time and I felt as though I wasn’t being heard. I created ‘Breathe Fire,’ an autobiographical record, explaining who I am and what I can bring to the table,” shares BriaR. “Although the record contains personal lyrics, I still wanted this to be a groovy track that makes you want to dance, hence the bass heavy record in the background.”

The daughter of legendary rapper Mack 10 (also known as part of Westside Connection alongside Ice Cube and WC) who also has a stepmom in T-Boz of TLC, BriaR can dream big because she comes from a family that has turned their own ambitions into reality. Growing up in the environment she did helped mold BriaR’s eclectic musical tastes, which incorporate not only the vintage old-school gangsta rap – but also New Wave (“Alanis Morrissette was a big influence in middle school”), grunge (Nirvana), punk (Green Day), pop (Gwen Stefani and No Doubt), rock (Fleetwood Mac), R&B (Michael and Janet Jackson, Aaliyah was “a big influence,” Beyonce, Shakira, TLC).

BriaR wrote the lyrics for the songs on the EP, recording them at home with her younger brother, rapper District 21, very much in the style of personal favorites like Billie Eilish and Finneas or, as she notes, fellow Calabasas residents Willow and Jaden Smith. “I have been obsessed with music since I was two years old,” she says of her upbringing around Topanga and Calabasas. “I remember Ice Cube coming to the house and me wanting to sing for him on the little karaoke machine my dad bought. For my brother and I, there was no other option. This is who we are.”

With Finding BriaR rolling out its five individual tracks this fall, BriaR is ready for the next step of her rise to stardom. “Recording this was like my therapy and it still is my therapy,” says BriaR. “The EP is about discovering the different sides of this individual. These songs helped me realize everything I want.”

MOLD! × I CAN SEE THE GHOST!

MOLD! Shares New Single “I CAN SEE THE GHOST!”
The track is the second single off the band’s upcoming album NO SILENCE!

Watch the video on YouTube.

Miami-based psych-rock outfit MOLD! shares“I CAN SEE THE GHOST!, the sophomore single off their debut full-length effort NO SILENCE!, due out in August. The track features fast-paced garage-infused guitars and dreamlike vocals. I CAN SEE THE GHOST! has a lysergic visual counterpart, featuring animations by Peruvian artists Bruna Denegri and Tomàs Del Prado.

Most of the tracks included in NO SILENCE! were written by founding band member Carlo Barbacci and former bassist Bronto Montano. The songs express their emotional conflict about leaving their home in Lima, Peru back in 2017, to embark on their journey to the United States–and the existentialism that arises from leaving everything behind to start anew.

The album was recorded and mixed at The Bull Recording Studio in Miami by sound engineer Ryan Haft (Torche, Wrong, Jacuzzi Boys), and produced in a collaborative effort between Barbacci and Haft. Mastering engineer Dave Cooley, whose credits include DIIV, Tame Impala, Stone Temple Pilots and J Dilla, to name a few, took the reigns for mastering duties, putting the final touches on the powerful and moreish record.

“I CAN SEE THE GHOST! Is a special song because most of the song’s harmony and structure came out naturally during a band jam session. As usual, I worked on structure, melody, and harmony later on using a DAW. Essentially This song follows the mood of the past single. The lyrics are very connected to it, the nostalgia and the anger are still very present. The difference is that this song is a better ’sample’ of what the rest of the album is like. The mood is darker. But this is still not the album! Every single will be more revealing of the band and of what we really are and represent. Hopefully, the listener will feel many different things and catch different meanings/messages listening to it! The song has all these textures and interesting sounds that really mean to hypnotize the listener. Step into this new portal away from mundane life just for a couple of minutes!” – Shares Carlo Barbacci

About MOLD!

MOLD! is a psych-rock collective based in Miami, Florida. The band was incepted in 2019, after founding member Carlo Barbacci moved from Lima, Peru to Miami. Since their formation, the outfit’s following has proliferated, allowing for them to become a staple on local bills, alongside some of the best underground bands the Magic City has to offer. To date, MOLD! has made there way across countless South Floridian stages, including the legendary venues Las Rosas and Churchill’s Pub.

With the release of their debut self-titled three-song EP in November, 2019, the
band embarked on a statewide tour, and performed alongside CLONE (members of DIIV, Habibi and Dead Leaf Echo) for their live-streamed release party at The center For Subtropical Affairs during Art Basel Week. Today the band gears up to release their first LP titled NO SILENCE!

OSCAR LANG – 21ST CENTURY HOBBY

Oscar Lang Shares Video For 21st Century Hobby, debut album Chew The Scenery Out August 13 on Dirty Hit

“Oscar Lang’s lo-fi pop tunes will worm their way into your brain and take up residence for the foreseeable future” – The Fader

“Much-needed sonic sunshine” – Notion

“Oscar Lang is the nonchalant guitar nerd about to conduct a quiet coup of bedroom pop” – The Line of Best Fit

“Oscar Lang may just be the sound of the summer we are all hoping to have” – Clash

“Ethereal sunshine pop” – The Guardian

Fast-rising London based artist and multi-instrumentalist Oscar Lang has released the video for his latest single, 21st Century Hobby, off his debut album Chew The Sceneryout August 13 on Dirty Hit. The video sees Lang surrounded by a mirage of the elements and advertisements that inundate you on social media and the toxic effects it creates. 21st Century Hobby is currently featured on a variety of top playlists including Spotify’s All New Indie, The Indie List, and Today’s Indie Rock as well as Apple Music’s New Music Daily and New In Alternative.

21st Century Hobby is a tune based on the idea of society’s obsession with sharing your life online and comparing yourself to other people,” Lang shares. “There was one point where I was spending 13 hours a week on social media, which equated to about a month every year. That was a really dark time for me – I always thought that it would never affect me, but it took some time to realize that it was subconsciously affecting my mental health.”

21st Century Hobby joins Stuck, which was written to capture the emotions and complicated feelings that are often attached to the embarrassing situations we replay in our minds, and Are You Happy?, written about a friend having a really hard timein building on the cohesive blueprint of Lang’s debut album. Chew The Scenery is his most ambitious release to date, which spans topics such as growing pains, love, romance, friendships and the pitfalls of social media on our collective mental health.

All three singles demonstrate Lang’s versatility and growth as a songwriter, highlighting Chew The Scenery’s scuzzy indie rock dynamics, psychedelic flourishes, and orchestral grandiosity. “Over the past two years the sound of my music has changed a lot, from bedroom pop to rock” Lang explains. “We recorded the album over a month up in Liverpool. It was a nice break away from the tedious lockdown in the UK as I got to spend a month away with my mates doing what I love. I think you can hear that built-up boredom being released on the record.

Chew The Scenery furthers Lang’s rise following a momentous 2020 for Lang which yielded the release of three EPs, Antidote to Being BoredHand Over Your Head and Overthunk. Lang’s Apple Juice has been featured in EA Sports game FIFA 2021 while She Likes Another Boy has found an audience on TikTok – the platform where coffee, the track Lang produced for beabadoobee, has found viral legs in Powfu’s death bed (coffee for your head), which has collected over 998 million streams on Spotify alone. Along the way, Lang has also gathered praise from SPINOnes To Watch, All Things Go, BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Annie Mac, and Huw Stephens, The FADERThe Line Of Best Fit, NME, CLASH, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and others.

Duke Dumont × Channel Tres Release Alter Ego

Internationally renowned DJ and producer Duke Dumont has dropped the official video for his latest single, Alter Ego, featuring Channel Tres, out via Astralwerks. 

Directed by US director George Nienhuis, who has done work for 2 Chainz and Major Lazer, Alter Ego is taken from Duke Dumont’s latest installment of his ‘For Club Play Only’ series. Featuring Channel Tres in a trippy, psychedelic environment, the video is a reimagining of club surroundings and lends itself perfectly to the cinematic soundscape and deep dance vibe of the track.

With a back-catalog that includes international chart no. 1 hits, multi-Grammy nominations, and underground house music productions, Duke Dumont’s ability to defy genres is a testament to his artistry. Over the past decade, he has been honing his skills and immersing himself in the infinite world of possibility that can be accessed through key, rhythm, tone, melody, and harmony. Duke Dumont has amassed over 3 billion streams across his portfolio of previous anthems, scoring several platinum-selling worldwide #1 singles in the process. His songs I Got You and Need You (100%) were nominated for “Best Dance Recording” at the Grammy Awards. They also consistently topped the UK Singles Chart, along with Ocean Drive and Won’t Look Back.

The official video of Alter Ego is an invigorating vision for the future of club culture and is set to be this summer’s hottest track. Duke Dumont continues to earn his calling card as the “King of Club House” with entrancing visuals, head-bopping rhythms, and contagious beats.

DJ Tennis x Life and Death

DJ Tennis has spent the past decade molding Life and Death into an extension of his own multidimensional mind. Refusing to adhere to trends and maintaining a strictly DIY approach, the label and roving events brand has become one of the foremost tastemaking platforms among the electronic underground. Now, longtime followers and curious newcomers alike are offered a fresh glimpse into Life and Death’s psychedelic world via the launch of a brand new Twitch channel and partnership. The inaugural broadcast takes place on June 1, with new episodes aired everyday.

Life and Death TV adds a new dimension to the brand’s technicolor universe—and for the first time, giving us a glimpse of the world behind some of the most influential artists and collaborators—building upon the mission of its website launched last year to breed community connection. It’s as multifaceted in character as the brand itself; segments range from emo carpet tufting and psychedelic art creation sessions, to bike tours around the world, to charting the transformation of Robot Heart resident Benjamin Alexander from a DJ to Jamaica’s first Olympian skier. The channel even pays homage to left of center cuisine, with a deep dive on the art of cooking insects by renowned Mexican chefs Tomás Bermúdez and Sergio Meza—both of whom have Michelin star experience under their belts.

Music remains at the core of Life and Death, and its ethos of cutting edge curation radiates across its Twitch channel programming. Juba’s “Global Dancefloor” examines the African diaspora within dance music alongside model and artist Exocé Kasongo. Peruvian artist Umoid will be tufting a special Life and Death mural rug in her home country to her soundtrack of carefully curated electronica. Marvin & Guy’s Marcello Giordani heads up the “Master Program,” where the Italo Deviance founder will explore disco and Italo’s past & present from his 10,000+ vinyl collection. “Focus,” hosted by Portuguese maverick Mike Stellar, is a talk show pairing the finest Brazilian music with wine tasting. Inspired by his hiking expeditions in Los Angeles, Daron Sassounian digs into the city’s underground with a mixtape/visual series, “Between the Ridge,” meant to stimulate emotions, memories, and ideas within its listeners.

Psychedelia plays a large influence in both DJ Tennis and Life and Death’s sounds ad visions. To honor this, the label boss will host his own show dedicated to mind expanding music and equally out-there accompanying visuals. He’ll also show off his inner quirk via his dog Frida the Husky working on her treadmill and other surprises. Jazz aficionados will enjoy Life and Death’s weekly Virtual Fireplace, while those needing an afterparty soundtrack can tune into the channel each weekend for a selection of music paired with footage of cute and rare animals from Miami’s Canine 101 sanctuary.

The Life and Death crew has kept itself plenty busy of late, focusing on various community oriented projects including the launch of their website, storytelling blog, and cut & sew clothing line which has already seen collaborations with indie artists Father Akki and Tony Tafuro. Come December 4, the label will once again join with Innervisions to bring their iconic Art Basel bacchanale, Rakastella, back to Florida’s Historic Virginia Key.

With the launch of Life and Death TV, the label’s legacy of pushing creative boundaries across mediums and the world.

RITT MOMNEY – PUT YOUR RECORDS ON

By Cassandra Yany

Ritt Momney released the music video for his version of Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Put Your Records On” Thursday. In the video produced by Overcast and directed by Daniel Jordan K, a young boy’s daydream is brought to life and he sees himself as a future pop star in a psychedelic dreamscape.

The audience sees the pop star in a field filled with colorful roses underneath a pastel sky. This scene then starts to morph back into reality as the tone of the song changes. The serene, yet exciting vibe of the visuals perfectly encapsulates the feel-good mood of the track.

The cover first gained popularity as part of a TikTok trend where creators would put random swatches of makeup on their face and then jump to a clip where they have designed a full look using those colors. Social media influencer Ian Roley was invited on set as a makeup influencer to recreate the trend’s butterfly look for the music video.

“In 2006, Corinne Bailey Rae released one of the greatest pop songs of all time with ‘Put Your Records On,’” said Momney. “It was one of my mom’s favorites. She’d blast it in the minivan on the way to soccer practice and we’d all sing.”

“Fast forward to March 2020 when I got the idea to do a fun little cover of this song I’ve loved my whole life to combat some of the dreariness I was feeling. With this being my first real music video, I was really lucky to work with a bunch of professionals who were also around my age. They did a really good job capturing the essence of the cover, and I’m stoked that I got to work with Ian, the makeup artist who started the TikTok trend.”

Momney plans to donate a portion of the music video’s proceeds to a charity of Rae’s choosing. His rework of the song has become the 21-year-old’s breakout hit of the year. It has earned him over 120 million global streams to date with over two million TikTok videos made with the sound. This also marks Momney’s first Billboard Hot 100 entry, currently holding the no. 82 spot, and his Pop radio debut, charting at no. 39 less than two weeks after its impact.

The song topped Spotify’s US and Global Viral 50 charts in September and currently holds the no. 17 and no. 23 spots on the Us and Global Top 50, respectively.

About Ritt Momney

Ritt Momney is the solo project of Salt Lake City native Jack Rutter. The project first began as an indie rock band with his high school friends, but later became a personal outlet for the 21-year-old after his bandmates left for Mormon missions and his girlfriend went to college. He began writing, recording and producing his upcoming debut album in his bedroom. In the LP, titled “Her and All of My friends,” Rutter struggles with loss, loneliness and a drift away from Mormon culture.

DEF JAM × KANYE WEST, ALESSIA CARA, YG, 2 CHAINZ, & MORE

MOVING THE CHARTS AND MOVING THE CULTURE: OVER 1 BILLION STREAMS GLOBALLY; FOUR CONSECUTIVE TOP 5 ALBUM DEBUTS IN JUNE; 6 NEW TRACKS ON SHAZAM’S US FUTURE HITS CHART; EIGHT TRACKS SIMULTANEOUSLY IMPACTING AT RADIO

Fueled by an aggressive slate of new albums and singles and led by a new executive team – has launched into the summer season with ever-increasing heat. Ignited by Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music, Def Jam artists have generated over 1 billion cumulative streams globally in the past month, and new music from Alessia Cara, Logic, YG, 2 Chainz and Jeremihis poised to dominate the charts all summer long.

“We’ve been very fortunate to be treated to this unprecedented schedule of game-changing releases from the inimitable Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music label,” said Paul Rosenberg, chairman and CEO of Def Jam Recordings. “I’m very pleased with how the team has responded and the success we have shared so far.”

With his historic five album run – yielding an unprecedented four consecutive Top 5 chart debuts in as many weeks from Pusha T, Kids See Ghosts, Nas, and his own #1 album yeKanye has once again grabbed control of the culture and shifted the paradigm. By releasing five 7-song albums, including the most-recent, critically acclaimed K.T.S.E. from Teyana Taylor – in consecutive weeks, Kanye has changed the concept of the album rollout, at once impossibly shortening the runway and elongating the news cycle, while unspooling the narrative with each release. In effect, the five albums have created a 35-song “playlist” across multiple genres: old school, sample-heavy rap, progressive, melodic hip-hop, R&B, psychedelic rock-rap, and more.

In addition to five albums lodged in the Top 25 on Apple Music, songs by Def Jam artists have also netted 19 debuts on the Billboard Hot 100. Charging headlong for the charts, Alessia Cara’s “Growing Pains,” #1 Most Added at Top 40 radio for two weeks running, and one of six new Def Jam tracks on Shazam’s US Future Hits Top 20 chart, including: “Yikes” and “All Mine” by Kanye West, “Bigger Than You” by 2 Chainz, “The Light”by MihTy (Jeremih & Ty Dolla $), and “Cops Shot The Kid” by Nas.

Def Jam’s seasoned promotion staff has an astonishing 8 tracks going for adds across multiple formats at radio – including “If You Know You Know” by Pusha-T, and “Big Bank” by YG. Propelled by an acclaimed BET Awards performance and the new music video trending at #3 on YouTube, “Big Bank” has exploded at Apple Music, Spotify, and Shazam.

At the same time, multi-platinum, Grammy®-nominated Def Jam artist Logic is headlining a sold-out tour in support of his #1 mixtape Bobby Tarantino II, the follow-up to Everybody, recently certified platinum. The mainstream worldwide success of Logic’s 4x-platinum “1-800-273-8255” is still reverberating more than a year after its release: last week 1-800 was awarded a Gold Lion for Artist as a Cause Ambassador at the annual Cannes Lion global brand conference.

Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko’s life-affirming album TRIP is also on the verge of RIAA gold certification, after spinning off two global hit singles, the gold “While We’re Young,” and platinum “Sativa” featuring Rae Sremmurd, each with over 100 million streams.
Behind the scenes at Def Jam Recordings, the company’s amazing new digital team has implemented new strategies to grow social followers and engagement. Def Jam now boasts the #1 social following of all major record labels, with an Industry-leading 400+K followers on Instagram, over 900+K followers on Twitter and growing. The five G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam releases alone have amassed over 70 million mentions and counting.

In another first for the label, Def Jam has employed an aggressive Direct-To-Consumer strategy to become the#1 D2C label within the Universal Music Group (UMG). This has been driven largely by the new G.O.O.D. Music releases, with creative, robust offerings of merch, vinyl, and special products including lithographs, cassettes and more.

While rolling out new projects from its heavy-hitting roster of stars, Def Jam is bringing a fresh crop of talent into the marketplace, with new music from recent signing like YK Osiris, Bobby Sessions, G.O.O.D. Music’s 070 Shake & Valee, PVRX, Fetty Luciano, and more.

Electric Pussycat

Electric Pussycat is a psychedelic bar lounge with major Austin Powers’ undertones. Situated near the Glendale Galleria on 103 E. Broadway. It’s definitely bringing ‘SexyBack’ into LA County as we have all been thirsty for something novel, something exotic.

Once again BNG (the makers of Supperclub Los Angeles × Project LA) has struck gold as this semi-ghost bar adorns high-end decor: floating chairs w/ tube lights, swirl murals throughout and a firefighter pole (which descends from the second level).

It’s Groovy Baby!
