Tips for a First Time Marijuana User


icon  09 Jan, 2017  /  icon  0        Author: Anne Fred

Marijuana has had a dubious reputation in the past, and while people have become more aware of it in the recent years, many are intimidated by the drug. There’s a lot of misinformation out there so people find it difficult to determine whether marijuana is right for them. Here are some tips that a first time marijuana user or a person who wants to try marijuana medication and are hesitant to.

Research
Before you purchase marijuana, it’s important to do you research. There are many reliable sources on the Internet that provide authentic information on different strains, forms, effects, etc.; this helps you make a more well-informed decision. A brief search on Google will reveal a large collection of articles, videos, and infographics that you can freely access to get more information. You can also browse through blogs and articles on our website to know more. Here are some of the points you need to research before you commit to a purchase:

  • Types of strains and subspecies of marijuana, including different types of indica, sativa, and hybrids.
  • Different forms of consumables available, including flowers, oils, edibles, shatter, etc.
  • THC and CBD and their effects.
  • Levels of THC and CBD in different strains and types of marijuana.
  • The effect of different forms of marijuana on your specific medical condition.

How to Purchase Marijuana?
Once you’ve determined what kind of marijuana you require and have all the documentation, license, and prescriptions with you, you need to think about purchase. There are several ways you can go about it. Many people walk into their local collective, talk to the sales team, browse through the available products, and make a purchase in the dispensary. While that is a good plan, some people are hesitant to do so. Not many want to purchase marijuana in public and would prefer the privacy that online purchase offers.

Online dispensaries are quite reliable and will deliver your medication directly to your doorstep in unmarked packages. If you don’t want your neighbors to know, you can purchase your medication from a discreet online service. Here are some things you must keep in mind if you intend to purchase marijuana online:

  • Make sure that the website is legal and legitimate. A website that asks for ids, prescriptions, and permits, operates within the confines of the law and therefore will sell legal products.
  • The website will verify information before they accept you as a member of their collective. This can take some time and until the verification is complete, you won’t gain access to marijuana.
  • You can ask for assistance from customer service. Some websites might even offer a live-chat feature to ensure you get a quick response.

Best Ways to Consume It
Once you have your marijuana, you should determine when and how you’ll consume it. It’s a good idea to start slow and choose the mildest way to consume marijuana, which is through smoke. A joint is the best way to start because it’s easy, especially if someone teaches you how to roll the cannabis. You can also try smoking through the bowl. All you need to do is grind the marijuana, place it on the rim of the bowl, and light it.

That will produce enough smoke for you to inhale so all you need to do is breathe it in and hold the smoke for a short period of time. This will help you experience your first marijuana high safely.  Other forms of marijuana like edibles and shatters can be too intense for first time users and some people may end up consuming a little too much.

If you do consume more than you can handle, don’t panic; try to keep a level head. You might feel paranoid and panicked but bear in mind that it’s impossible to overdose when you’re on weed. All you need to do is put your marijuana away, sit back, and just drift for a while. Eventually, you’ll come down from the high and find yourself back in your regular mindset.

What You Can Expect
So what can you expect from your first experience with marijuana? It largely depends on the type of marijuana you smoke. Indica has comparatively high levels of THC so you’ll feel high, lazy, and relaxed. Experienced marijuana smokers will only consume indica in the evening or night time unless they intend to laze around during daytime. Sativa has low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. You’ll feel energetic and creative so it’s an ideal day-time medication. Here are some other things you can expect from marijuana:

  • You’ll feel hungry.
  • Your eyes and mouth will become dry.
  • The effect will last for about two hours.
  • Your perception of time will slow down.

If you choose the right marijuana, you’ll also get relief from any pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, etc, you might have. If you don’t feel the effects, feel free to smoke a little more to get the desired results.

It’s a different Ball Game altogether for Legal Marijuana Growers in California

It’s a different Ball Game altogether for Legal Marijuana Growers in California


icon  21 Dec, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Jack

Legal marijuana cultivators are driving a different kind of success in California. The decriminalization of recreational weed in California is forming a gold rush for warehouses to host weed grows. Investors don’t have a lot of options to directly cash in on California’s recent move to legitimize weed. Presently, there are no marijuana producing organizations publicly trading the substance. On the other hand, cannabis remains unlawful under the federal government. All the same, they wait in anticipation for a lift in the demand for warehouses as legitimate weed companies continue to look for space to cultivate their marijuana supply. In the coming few months, the demand for weed is expected to shoot up and that is why marijuana delivery companies are committed to increase the weed grows for a steady supply.

Company shares such as those of Rexford Industrial Realty Inc, Terreno Realty Corp and Prologis Inc that have enormous exposure to the market in California must benefit even if they do not lease to cannabis firms directly.  This is for the reason that, marijuana companies should pay above-set market rates for outmoded facilities that are ideally appropriate for the indoor cultivation of weed plants and for storing marijuana products as well. Apparently, this takes out some of the space in an already competitive market and pushing general rents higher than expected. Marijuana companies will find several distressed properties and still use them. In most cases, they will have the money to make payments for the same regardless of the cost. This way, it permits companies with contemporary facilities to even charge more. The real estate asset trusts for warehouses based in California are attractive to many investors.  This emerging demand is somewhat expected to be of great benefit to the owners.

In November 2016, California legalized recreational cannabis for adults. This achievement was first made in Colorado and Washington D.C. Other states that have passed recreational weed laws are Alaska, Oregon, Nevada and Massachusetts. The increasing demand for warehouse space in the state of California for cannabis-related firms comes as customers are searching for marijuana for sale online. Some of the retailers are placing another demand through the establishment of distribution centers. In 2014, the rent for warehouses increased by 10% in Colorado following the start of legal cannabis sales, according to CBRE, a real-estate data organization.  The First Industrial Realty Trust Inc. shares that at 5% of assets had the largest allocation of its portfolio in Colorado increased to 25% within the same year. This resulting figure was twice that of the broad S&P 500 Index.

Marijuana cultivated indoors is basically more consistent and contains a higher concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than any other grown elsewhere. Well, the fund ownership is steadily increasing in a falling market. The number of funds with shares of warehouse companies in California is increasing as the wide real estate sector starts to slip. For instance the number of funds holding Prologis, which is the biggest warehouse REIT generally, has about 20% of its portfolio in California. According to the Morningstar data, this was an 11% increase over the last quarter of the year.  Fund ownership of Terreno and Rexford, smaller firms that have 20% or more of their portfolios in California increased by almost 2%. Generally, the MSCI U.S. REIT index has slipped by 4% over the last 3 months. This has occurred as investors left companies focused on dividends in search of higher rates of interest. The Rexford and Terreno shares are both up roughly at 9% and Prologis shares are also up at 4% over the same period of time even with lower yields compared to the 3.6% of the S & P Real Estate segment.

According to analysts, the increasing power of pricing from a highly competitive market must help the warehouse companies focusing on California to counter the rising rates of interests. The growth of rent is very robust and there is some occupancy that can be leased out at higher rates. As of now, about 90% of Rexford’s inventory has been given out for rent. Looking at the 96% lease for all warehouses located in Southern California, the company should get a stronger rent and a growth of occupancy more than its competitors.

This Year’s Emerald Cup Event in California Recorded a High Turn-out


icon  14 Dec, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Anne Fred

Continued marijuana reforms all over the United States are yielding great results for the industry. Today, users can buy marijuana online without the need to leave their houses. These are some of the benefits that have been experienced in California since 1996 following the establishment of medical cannabis laws in the state. Moreover, the passing of Proposition 64 is also great news in California’s marijuana industry. Definitely, the industry is expected to continue growing even the more, now that marijuana for recreational use is decriminalized.  This was very evident as a yearly event dubbed the Emerald Cup attracted about 30,000 people from around the United States for celebrations at the Santa Rosa fairgrounds. This was the 13th year that the event was taking place and in many occasions, it has been taking place in secret. People came out in large numbers to see the winners of the competition in 2016. The event organizer, Tim Blake reported that the change noticed in the last two years was much more than what was experienced in the last two decades or so.

The Emerald Cup is usually a 2-day festival conducted annually following the outdoor cultivation season and marijuana growers drawn from all around the state meet together to contend for the prize. Ideally, the Emerald Cup is the marijuana equivalent to an Oscar for cultivators in California. In this year’s event, there were more than 1,100 various marijuana flowers, edibles, concentrates and many others that were included in this year’s competition. This was double the number of those taking part in the competition compared to last year. It proved to be a defining moment for the event as it continues to grow in notoriety and popularity.  Hotels were really sold out inside 30 miles of the fairgrounds, with individuals coming from different states specifically to attend the event. No one, including the event organizer thought that they would come to this level. Pat Bakalain, one of the lobbyists for marijuana thought that the event would continue underground for years. Those who attended the event noticed that the people in attendance were very friendly and that the scale was very great.

There was once a “medication region” where cultivators were giving out free joints as dealers continued to trade their weed products. In such occasions, lines formed for every food seller available and growers were in a position to go to educational panels where they were able to learn more concerning the new laws being established for the cultivation of recreational and medical marijuana. There are also marijuana growers from such places as Colorado, who attended to sell weed seeds to cultivators who joyfully restocked them for the coming season. This award was the highlight of Sunday according to the marketing director, Jordan Caballero. It is the main reason why owners of marijuana delivery service owners were in attendance along with other cannabis entrepreneurs. It is every person’s commitment for the whole year and season congregating and ending with the cup. People treasure this event so much and they say that it is like winning the Emmy or Grammy awards in marijuana.

The winner in this year’s Emerald Cup was a strain known as Zkittles. It was explained as a tropical fruit cannabis strain that had a very high potency. One judge was convinced after smoking the strain.  The judges had tested more than 650 entries only for the “flowers” category over a period of one month before the final event.  This specific strain stood out for most of the judges. It will definitely be one of the strains many people will be looking forward to try given the opportunity to do so. With the recent developments in this event this time round, there is a growing popularity and it is even expected to grow more in the future. As of today, the Emerald Cup is the largest marijuana event in the state and it will certainly continue to remain at the top following this year’s success. It is very exciting to see the weed industry begin to thrive and people coming out of dark-corners to participate in festivities. This is also promoted through the terrific number of cultivators and manufacturers getting into the contest for the title of the best weed in the state.

Should Cannabis Entrepreneurs in California be worried about the Tax Man?


icon  01 Dec, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Jack

The legal cannabis industry in California is expected to include everybody: store front sellers, backyard growers, dealers offering marijuana for sale online and the farm belt as well. Meanwhile, California state tax collectors are making the initial moves to get a hand into this increasingly growing industry. The state treasury seeks to benefit from the billions of dollars that are at stake in California’s future. State analysts estimate that both the local and state governments may end up collecting more than $1 billion per year from the manufacturing and sale of legitimate marijuana. Still, no one can tell how big this industry will become. For the state, there is no sure way of predicting the number of retailers that will join the market place as the business kicks off in the coming months. However, it is estimated that cultivators could be to the tune of 25,000. These will be required to register and start paying taxes accordingly. Experts believe that there will be some marijuana business operations that will endeavor to remain in the black market, probably to evade these tax issues that they are not used to. Jerome Horton, a member of California’s tax-collecting Board of Equalization says that it will be the wild west out there.

The Board of Equalization panel began structuring its job. The panel approved on a divided vote, an application to request money for gradually adding staff members in anticipation of collecting revenue tax from the legitimate sale and growing of cannabis. The action taken by the board came in barely three weeks following the passing of Proposition 64 in the 2016 elections. Proposition 64 decriminalized recreational marijuana use in California, a state considered to be the most populous in the United States. State organs concerned with the business of marijuana prepare to police the cannabis industry and ensure that every dealer pays up. All the same, there still are a number of uncertainties. Some of the board members saw the need to update these figures in the coming months. In the meeting that was held in Culver City, California, Horton felt that the projections were understated. One of the board members, Diane Harkey made a suggestion to take what has been mainly an illegitimate marketplace and transfer it to operate under state government. There is the will even though there is not much to tell how this will work.

Legal medical marijuana was first embraced in California in 1996 and the board makes estimation that there are about 1700 marijuana dispensaries that exist in the state today. The vote legalizing recreational marijuana use represented the biggest victory for the national legalization movement. This recent development sets the platform for a sweeping transformation for people to buy marijuana. The new regulations seek to tame the weed market that includes both legal, medicinal manufacturing and sales to the immense illegal cultivations that are conducted through drug cartels. Ideally, California will start treating marijuana and alcohol the same. The law will come into effect by 2018 where adults aged 21 years and above will legally possess a maximum of an ounce of marijuana and also be allowed to cultivate six marijuana plants per household. The law also allows counties and cities to impose their own controls and taxes on the use of recreational weed.

Proposition 64 defines two new taxes by the state of California where marijuana consumers will be required to pay 15% excise fee on the retail selling price. This excise tax will apply to both medical and recreational marijuana. Again, there will be a cultivation tax that will be imposed on all harvested weed that goes into the commercial market. Local governments can also impose their own taxes and many other communities are prepared to establish new regulations and tax levies. With the growing of marijuana business, there are fears concerning possible violence from cartels and criminal gangs protesting against tax investigators in their search for hidden cultivations. At the same time, weed remains illegitimate at the federal level and the position taken by the newly elected Trump administration cannot be told. Along with other marijuana-friendly states, California could face some hurdles. Trump’s appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions sends fears among states that have decriminalized cannabis because he has over the years spoken ill of this herb.

Well, the state’s $1 billion annual tax collections on marijuana as predicted by state analysts may be an obscure target. It could take some years before the system gets streamlined with fears of the illegal market failing to conform.  There is a need to design new systems. With the federal government still terming weed as illegal, tax payments may end up being paid in cash. It is a challenge for the agency especially when such payments are to be made on a large scale. There is a chance that some may not pay up.

Better days are coming: Cause Cannabis Workers get Support from Labor Unions


icon  29 Nov, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Jack

One of the biggest labor unions in the United States, the United Food and Commercial Workers union is now compelling California to draft laws to safeguard the interests of cannabis workers. This is part of the moves made by several other organizations to enable users to buy marijuana from a well organized industry. In 1996, California voted in the use of medical marijuana and continued changes have seen more access to marijuana for sale online to this date. Today, the United Food and Commercial Workers union continues to positively impact the cannabis industry. The union was part of the bodies that pushed for weed legalization and made recommendations for further reforms. Proposition 64, which demands for the strictest packaging, labeling and testing of cannabis got huge support. It was finally passed during the 2016 elections. The provisions of Proposition 64 also touched on medical marijuana and the weed patients are happy with it knowing that they can still buy marijuana without much hassle.

The labor union’s work is highly commendable so far. Still in the marijuana industry, the union was able to organize California pot employees in 2010. It was the first organization to take this bold step. From records, it has about 1200 duly registered members across San Francisco and Los Angeles. If weed users will be able to afford to buy marijuana without experiencing hikes in price, that will be a great achievement for the union. It all starts with taking care of the employees’ welfare. Still on the same efforts, regulators will give out growers’ licenses come 2018 under the new directives. All the cannabis workers in the state will get the same cover. The Occupational Health and Safety Division of California can enact legal protections for the cannabis industry. However, this can only be possible following the receipt of public views that should be submitted by end of November 30, 2016.

With the current pace of marijuana legalization throughout the United States, the United Food and Commercial Workers union says that there won’t be many protections for weed workers. However, marijuana delivery services hiring individuals that can legitimately smoke weed for medical reasons should also be ready for the pending legal developments. Just like in the past, employers should be able to address the risks of safety and possible impairment amongst workers in their premises. This is particularly for the company drivers and employees working with heavy machinery. Normal drug testing procedures are still in force. However, as laws change concerning the legitimate nature of the drug, policies could be adjusted to reflect the growing decriminalization.

 What this Means for the Cannabis Industry
Things are slowly taking shape in the marijuana industry. While the focus by the labor union is on the safety of the workers, the same effect will trickle down to positively impact on those who buy marijuana for whatever reason with respect to their regions. Improved working conditions and motivation for workers will translate to improved quality on cannabis products. That is why the labor union has continued to organize pot workers in California. There are a lot of benefits that will come through training on safety and health. Now that the marijuana industry is becoming a fully legalized business in California, normal business practices must be allowed to take course. No customer would want to engage a weed service that is not fully compliant or get help from uninformed workers. Therefore, the action taken by the labor union is bringing together all stakeholders take a holistic approach towards cannabis business.

The need to put order in marijuana industry cannot be over emphasized. Legal businesses need to be protected from those operating the black market. The strict laws provided through Proposition 64 must be implemented in full force and protect all workers and customers who want to buy legal marijuana. Marijuana delivery services are therefore called upon to respond in a timely manner and embrace the change that is coming through the state laws and regulations. Presently, the labor practices in the marijuana industry have not been followed to the latter. The United Food and Commercial Workers union hopes that things will change for the better.

The call for streamlining marijuana businesses in California will go a long way in promoting the industry in the end. The push by this labor union is just a sign that times for marijuana are changing.  Under the new legislation, regulators will start to issue licenses to cultivators in 2018. All protections for the workers in California will also apply. Adjustments will also be made to protect those working as bud trimmers and the pot workers in general. By enacting regulations particularly for the cannabis industry, the marijuana delivery will be greatly enhanced. It is a win-win situation for all interested parties including the business owners. If there is no motivation for workers and good regulation in the industry, the businesses may fail to achieve their objectives.

Medical Marijuana could be Tax-Free for a While in California. Was it an Oversight through Proposition 64?


icon  25 Nov, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Jack

Laws are usually very definitive and any unclear statements could be interpreted otherwise to favor one party. With the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in California, there could have been an unforeseen error. Before the 2016 elections, a number of states had already decriminalized the use of cannabis for medical reasons. In that case, there were well-laid out laws and regulations that govern the production, distribution and sale of medical cannabis. There has been a lot of anticipation from marijuana advocates that improved laws would be enacted to make the situation even better for them. For sure, continued reforms on marijuana kept their hope alive. The greatest developments in recent times, particularly during the 2016 election were characterized by the decriminalization of recreational weed in Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts and California. Still, these four states had already existing medical marijuana programs that had exhibited potential revenue from tax collections. In a bid to expand their programs, these states gave the voters a chance to continue on with marijuana reforms.

On the Election Day, California reported to have passed marijuana for recreational use. This was great news to all involved in the marijuana business considering how long the journey has been. The California government too had something to smile about considering the amount of tax revenue coming out of marijuana. It is such a huge business in California. However, recreational marijuana use is guided under strict laws and regulations, and in California, they were well documented in Proposition 64. In this particular case, it was not only about recreational marijuana. The proposition has touched on issues involved in the regulation of medical cannabis. This is where a probable error might have occurred especially on laws of taxation concerning this hotly contested subject of marijuana.

Was it an Oversight in Regulating Medical Marijuana Use?

California was so eager to pass marijuana for recreational use. Apparently during the process, a small oversight could have been made. Interestingly, most of the oversights that have been experienced in the past have been found to harm customers. This time round, it was a probable mistake that could be of benefit to medical marijuana users, at least for some time if not in the long-term. As provided for in Proposition 64, the California state would impose a 15% excise duty on both medical and recreational weed.  For recreational marijuana, there would be an extra 7.5% sales levy included on top of that. However, there was somewhat interesting news to the ears of medical marijuana patients coming from California’s high court. According to this court, Proposition 64 removed the already existing medical marijuana sales levy. This would see medical weed patients benefit from cheap marijuana up to and until the new laws take effect in 2018.

The entire idea of exemption from sales tax for medical marijuana patients was to have a balance between medical and recreational marijuana users. According to a spokesman for California’s Proposition 64, Jason Kinney, there was an effort made to make medical cannabis a little more affordable than recreational weed following the implementation of the new excise levy. These latest developments coming from the high court in California continue to send new messages around the state. Such a ruling could imply that California medical marijuana sales will be exempted from tax for the whole of 2017.  Looking at the San Francisco Chronicle, this may lead to a loss of about $50 million of tax proceeds. However, interpretations coming from the high court of California concerning these tax issues were not well-received by Jason Kinney. Speaking on behalf of Proposition 64 committee, he reiterated that they did not agree with such explanations of the measure concluding that medical weed patients are in a way exempted from paying sales tax on marijuana. This could continue to impact more on the state’s market for recreational marijuana as many more Californians obtain medical marijuana cards to take advantage of this situation to get cannabis medicine free of tax for about a year or so.

There are a number of uncertainties in the marijuana market. This situation is compelling businesses from such places as Colorado among other recreational states to keep off California until this issue is resolved. There is yet another issue of the enormity of the state and the many different laws that marijuana dispensaries and other weed-based businesses will have to address. Speaking on the same issue, a co-partner of Wana Brands, Nancy Whiteman said that California is such a big state to an extent that if anyone is operating in a given situation where he or she has a patchwork of various laws in various municipalities, it would hamper production due to the disparity in regulations. Well, it is not yet determined but we don’t know what could happen before all the stakeholders agree on the way forward.

The Best Way to Buy Marijuana Online


icon  22 Nov, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Jack

For many years, getting marijuana has been quite challenging. However, technology and internet has made it easier and today, you can easily order marijuana online. You don’t have to leave your house anymore.  All the same, you should make sure that you don’t buy marijuana illegally. For this reason, it is important to find out the authorized dealers in the market. Even though marijuana has been legalized for both medical and recreational use in some places, there are laws and regulations governing its trade. Therefore, online weed delivery services are not a shortcut to getting pot illegally. It could be a very dangerous move to buy weed from an illegal entity. In that case, your first priority is to establish the legitimacy of your marijuana delivery service. After that, you can go ahead to find out the quality and variety of cannabis products offered by your chosen weed service. All the same, you don’t have to be worried about the bad guys in the market because the good ones still exist. With good research, you will definitely come across reliable marijuana services.

Reputable online marijuana companies are the choice you should go for. Weed delivery services gain reputation through the quality of their products and customer experience with delivery times and useful information regarding their order. Look at various customer reviews online especially taking note of how long they waited before their cannabis products were delivered. How was the quality? Was the marijuana delivered safely and conveniently at customers’ preferred location?  Well, these are things you should consider before you proceed to order marijuana online. All successful buyers have taken time to read through websites for pot delivery companies before engaging them.

Choosing Your Preferred Online Marijuana Dispensary

 There is no debate about choosing a formally certified marijuana delivery outlet. If you have been careful to search through the internet, you will definitely come across many individual sellers and not the dispensaries alone. It is highly advisable to deal with dispensaries especially if it is the first time you are trying marijuana for sale online. This is very important in order to avoid getting scammed. Therefore, you must ensure that you are getting marijuana from someone you can question should anything go wrong. While marijuana may be partially or fully legalized based on your region, it doesn’t not mean that the black market is out of existence. There are smart minds out there that can really mess up with your budget and fail to deliver quality cannabis products. Therefore, when the deal is too good, think twice. These are traps to plunge you into real problems and make your life difficult. Scammers are getting a good niche and if you are not careful, you may not be able to differentiate between them. You obviously do not want to buy from such people. The most challenging bit is that, they don’t hide and will openly approach any willing buyer to get weed from them.

If you want to buy marijuana in a safe way, make sure you do your homework very well. Understand the types of cannabis products available in the larger market. This will help you differentiate good deals from the raw ones. For medical cannabis patients, having a medical card doesn’t protect you in case you buy marijuana from an illegitimate marijuana delivery service. Other than facing legal charges, you may also get poor quality weed that will affect your health. Giving out your personal details online is a very risky thing to do especially when you are not sure of the person you are dealing with. The underlying principle here is not to buy marijuana from anyone who appears online.

The US Federal Government Feels the Heat Coming from Marijuana Votes


icon  08 Nov, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Paul

Marijuana is gaining popularity in the United States and many more states are considering its legalization owing to the many benefits seen with its use. Apparently, the number of marijuana votes is increasingly steadily and the federal government cannot ignore them despite its stand against marijuana legalization. For places like in Colorado, recreational marijuana uses have been legal since the start of 2014. During this time, an entirely new crop of business in the name of cannabis tourism took off. For many travelers to the state, it is a remarkable development following years of hiding the habit of using marijuana. Despite having been smoked for the longest time, marijuana has been voted down in recent times but things are slowly changing. Previous literature presented marijuana as an herb that led to horrors such as suicide and murder. What lacked in these reports is the medical value of marijuana in treating pain among other disease symptoms.

The tone is now changing and it is amazing how people can order marijuana online in some of the states where it has been legalized. Initially, a lot of money was spent to track suppliers and enforce laws against the drug. Despite all these measures put in place, Americans are still rehabilitating the rug. As of today, medical marijuana has been legalized in 25 states in the US. Others like Alaska, Oregon, Washington, the District of Columbia and Colorado have gone ahead to even permit the use of recreational weed. Recreation use of marijuana is also being pursued in places such as Maine, Nevada, Massachusetts, California and Arizona. Other propositions seeking to permit the use of medical cannabis are also underway in such places as Florida, North Dakota, Montana and Arkansas. This is indeed pressure mounting on the federal government to consider reviewing its stand on the cannabis industry.

Interesting Trends on Marijuana
State governments seem to be reaping millions of US dollars from taxes imposed on the sale and use of marijuana. Colorado being one of them, states where recreational and/or medical marijuana has been legalized have experienced an increased revenue collection from marijuana proceeds. However, the operations in the business are not getting a fair treatment and advocates are still dealing with a lot of stigma. There are a number of hoops in the regulatory structure that are hampering progress. This is especially from federal regulatory framework that seems to restrict the use of bank accounts for businesses related to cannabis. With the state taking over in controlling the marijuana business, there is hope that success will be attained in the end.

Effects on public health, public safety and youth outcomes are stands held by the federal government that has made it go slow on the herb. However, these fears have been rubbished by reports from such bodies as the Colorado Department of Public Safety stating that there is no enough proof to warrant making any conclusions against the use of marijuana. Medical marijuana benefits have been a major development in spurring the much anticipated legalization of weed over the years. Looking at what research has presented in recent times, and the insignificant result that has resulted from fighting drugs, legalization seemingly remains as the only viable option.

Reforms on marijuana are turning on the masses in the United States and there is hope for its full fledged legalization looking at the measures taken by different states to support it. It is no longer about medical marijuana alone. Apparently, it is getting past that and despite the government’s failure to federally legalize it even for medical use, recreational use will soon be realized.

Hope for Marijuana Legalization in California as Law Enforcement gives Way for Voting


icon  05 Nov, 2016  /  icon  5        Author: Paul

The push for full fledged reforms on marijuana has been on the run for some time now and California seems to edge closer by the day. Based on the much advertised Proposition 64, the people believe that time has come for California to decriminalize and freely regulate both recreational and medical marijuana. Back in 2010, voters in California failed to make recreational marijuana legal where it narrowly lost to the opposition who won with a majority 54%. It was such a close decision that sent the message that the battle was still on. Voting was based on Proposition 19, which was mainly opposed not because the idea of legalizing pot was bad but only because the proposition was not drafted well. Those who voted against it had fears on the manner in which the herb would be regulated.

Today, things have changed a lot. Led by Washington and Colorado, four states have now legalized the recreational use of cannabis amongst adults. No major challenges have been experienced. On the other side, almost half of the states have now accepted the use of medical marijuana and Canada is working towards the use of marijuana among the adults come 2017. With the ongoing campaigns for the upcoming elections, the key presidential candidates consider this a wedge issue. In that case, they have promised not to frustrate the legalization efforts taken up by the individual states.

Over the years, they have been a big shift on perception towards drug policy. This has been prompted by the questions posed concerning the effect that has been realized with the fight on drugs over the decades. Ideally, there have been a lot of expenditures, marginalized communities, abusive drug cartels and overcrowded prisons. That is all that has been achieved significantly. Today, the idea that has been embraced by many is that, the enforcement of prohibition is more costly and yet has produced few benefits. Looking at these mixed outcomes, the federal government has apparently surrendered on its role. The work has now been left upon states to make decisions by themselves concerning the use and regulation of marijuana and in the end enact a national marijuana policy.

Efforts taken through Law Enforcement in California
In a move to legalize recreational marijuana amongst adults, concerned authorities have considered giving the people another chance to vote this November. This will be realized through Proposition 64, which is “the Adult use of Marijuana Act”. It is time for the voters to determine whether the hard stand on marijuana will be removed and left to control drugs such as heroin alone. If successful, this will see the recreation use of pot among adults with proper regulation frameworks.

The take by the law enforcers in California is to give voters a chance to make marijuana legal in the state. However, there are provisions made in proposition 64 that allows the legislatures to make amendments from time to time based on the results of its use. This move is considered better on issues of public health, for maintaining law and order and for the society in general. Well, the proposition is not believed to be perfect but it gives the issue a good standing. It is a very pragmatic and logical strategy of engaging in a process that would see a sober way of legalizing marijuana. The flexibility of regulators and lawmakers to make changes as may deem necessary is much welcome by all interested parties and stakeholders. The stand taken by the Californian governing authorities is that, the process of legalizing marijuana will continue to be in check even if the proposition 64 gets a “Yes” vote.

Although not official, California has ideally legalized marijuana. Almost any adult can access medical marijuana through recommendation and purchase the pot products in a legal manner from medical dispensary. Well, some users have not even bothered to fake any ailment and have bought the herb on the black market without any concern that they may go to jail. To end this, the law enforcement authorities give a chance to proposition 64 to tame the illegal market. In the event that this proposition passes, the law enforcement bodies will allow any person aged 21 years and above to grow, purchase and have marijuana for their own use. This will be allowed in businesses with licensing to warrant on-site use or in private homes.

Essentially, the state will continue to be in control especially on issues to do with licensing and regulation of the marijuana industry. Regulation will be right from the growth of weed, its processing, delivery channels and the selling process. The law enforcement authorities have also expressed interests owing to the revenue that will be collected following the commercial growing and sale of marijuana. It is expected that revenue collections may go up to $1 annually. Looking at the issues highlighted here, the law enforcement takes a soft yet strict stand on marijuana legalization in California. It hopes to fully control and regulate the use should Proposition 64 pass.

Medical Marijuana Regimen for Kidney Stones Patients


icon  03 Nov, 2016  /  icon  9        Author: Paul

One of the common diseases known to inflict pain in a patient’s body is kidney stones. Many women and men suffer from this condition. Additionally, there is an increasing number of these patients every year. This has largely been contributed by the diets people take nowadays. In the United States, about 10% of the population will have a kidney stone in the course of their life. It has also been reported that over a million people make trips to hospitals for kidney stone related complications. Owing to this state of affairs, a number of patients have turned to the use of medical marijuana to treat kidney stones. The latest buzz in medicine is centered on the proposition that medical cannabis can treat this condition. The only question has been: what is the effectiveness of the method?

Kidney Stones! What are they?
Well, a proper application of the benefits of marijuana requires a good knowledge of the condition that needs intervention. Ideally, kidney stones result from an increased content of crystal-forming substances such as oxalate, uric acid and calcium. They become solids when they cannot be diluted anymore by the fluid contained in urine. Kidney stones also forms when urine does not contain enough substances that prevent such crystals from sticking together. This kidney problem can be caused by high sodium diets, dehydration and a poor lifestyle.

So, how do you tell that you have kidney stones and that you can consider visiting a cannabis dispensary for treatment? Here are common kidney stones symptoms: acute pain in the groin area, back, ribs and/or lower abdomen, Nausea, a brown, cloudy, red or brown urine color, high frequency of urinating. Having encountered these symptoms, some of the patients have turned to the medical use of marijuana for a solution and apparently, there have been positive results.

Medical Benefits of Marijuana on Kidney Stones
Kidney stones illness is a serious condition and may require surgery in some cases. There are quite a number of options to address the situation including allowing the stones to go through the urinary tract with the help of large intakes of water. However, in recent times, uses of medical marijuana have extended to the treatment of this condition. Cannabis is one of the home remedy used by patients in the treatment of kidney stones. There are medical professionals who are now prescribing medical cannabis for the treatment of this kidney condition. Even though it is an unconventional approach, it has worked and many now believe that it is a viable regimen.

The main relief through Medical Marijuana
The administration of treatment in every kind of illness is aimed at dealing with certain signs and symptoms. For medical uses of marijuana, the focus has been in the treatment of pain and the management of nausea amongst kidney stones patients. This condition leads to back pain and owing to the pain relieving characteristics of medical cannabis, healing can be attained through its proper use. Other benefits can be realized in the event that the patient feels nauseated. California medical marijuana dispensaries particularly in San Francisco have reported patients who have used marijuana for the treatment of kidney stones. According to one Aden Patrick, patients have reported positive response from the harsh side effects of the condition after taking medical marijuana. Ideally, most patients have opted for natural home remedies and apparently, marijuana is taking the lead among these solutions. Cannabis is helpful in the treatment of kidney stones owing to its analgesic properties and deals with pain just like the common aspirin would do. It has muscle-relaxing properties that are very useful to the strained urinary tubes. With a decreased number of spasms, patients are most likely going to experiene less pain.

Business in the USA gets Tougher with Medical Marijuana: Here is why?


icon  18 Oct, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: David

The fact that 26 states allow the sale of cannabis does not change things for those in the medical marijuana business. This is because the federal law does not in itself allow the sale of marijuana. Even though it does not prosecute those that are licensed by the state, some lawyers, investors and accountants still cannot act against the federal law. This leaves the whole situation even more complicated and tricky. One Pete Kadens, a partner based in Chicago recorded the difficulties that they face when making simple financial transactions. He states that even the most straightforward transactions suddenly become very complicated where medical marijuana is involved. Mr. Kadens is a partner with the Green Thumb Industries which operates two dispensaries and two cannabis cultivation sites in Illinois. He also claimed that it took them four months to open a bank account which normally takes a day.

These complaints have been raised by several dealers and the number is an adequate sample to represent those involved in medical marijuana business. Mr. Tim McGraw who is the founder and president of Downers Grove-based Revolution Enterprises also has his side of the story. He said that all their transactions however minor must be audited by the bank. It is now close to impossible to get a traditional mortgage from a bank. Taxes have become another thorn in the flesh for those doing the weed business. Even though the Federal government has put anti-marijuana laws in place, it has written tax rules to govern those who still sell it. These laws cover all other prohibited drugs. Anyone dealing in such drugs cannot make usual business deductions and this means that taxes go over 50%. Lawyer Hilary Bricken says that the tax situation is not expected to change any time soon.

The medical law in Illinois has been noted to be one of the most restrictive. This is because only forty conditions have been approved for medical marijuana treatment. The main issue is that chronic pain is not among those conditions and this is definitely a big blow. A great percentage of patient bases are made up of those with chronic pains. Consequently, if one doesn’t offer treatment for chronic pain then their client base suffers a great deal. One judge has however ordered that the state should include migraines in the list. Due to lifestyle changes, most people suffer migraines almost daily. Convectional medication has not been very effective in treating this condition. Medical marijuana could be the solution that has been sought for long. Even though Mr. Bricken is practicing towards the cannabis law, his hopes on the situation are not very high.

As at 30th September, the state had only approved 11000 patients to purchase marijuana for medication. This figure was way below the anticipations of the growers and distributers. As it stands, the state seemingly gets more benefits from the medical marijuana business than the growers and distributers. From the growers, the state collects 7% fee and 1% sales tax from the retailers. When businesses apply for cultivation licenses, they each pay a certain amount as application fee. Then out of all the applicants, those who win are again required to pay a permit fee that has to be renewed every year. Those seeking dispensary licenses also go through the same. However, Jack Campbell seems to have a positive view of the situation all together. Being the one who oversees medical marijuana program in Illinois, he says that there is progress. He has urged all to be patient since this is a new program that must take time to be established.

Now Buy The Ultimate Feminized Marijuana Online In California


icon  04 Oct, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

Medical Marijuana is of great benefit for those who have medical problems and prefer to treat their condition naturally. In California, there is now a simple way to order and receive marijuana, the natural medication, through www.potvalet.com.

An interesting Fact
Marijuana is closely related to a product that is used and legal in all states. Some may think tobacco but they would be wrong. Hops have been found to smell, taste, and in some cases, look similar to cannabis! That light-headed feeling you get from drinking alcohol has to do with the common terpenes in the hops.The terpenes that they have in common are myrcene- which also shares this terpene with mangos, beta-pinene, and alpha-humulene. The chemical compound (myrcene) is found in several plants. Now, that is taking science of the molecular structure of plants to a different level!

Strains of Cannabis
The strains of Marijuana can determine whether you will feel energized or relaxed. Sativa is commonly the energizer and stimulant. This strain can make you feel focused. The strain most commonly used for medical marijuana is Indica. It relieves pain and relaxes the patient, making them want to sleep. It is helpful with many pain conditions and helpful with seizures and sleep disorders, as well. The third type of marijuana is the hybrid. These are strains that combine the Sativa and Indica, and produce a different plant that takes the properties that the two different types of cannabis to produce the strain.

Government’s Medical Interference
Unless you are a marijuana aficionado, or are old enough to remember this medical miracle in medication, it was used in over the counter medicines until 1937, Eli Lilly, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Smith Brothers, and Merck had incorporated this plant in medicines. We realize that we had medical marijuana and it was taken away. Our government (U.S) incorporated a tax on marijuana. In 1942, the medical of marijuana disappeared, as it was deemed illegal, and became a Schedule 1 drug, where it was not something that would be allowed to be used in medication. It was considered as bad as LSD and heroin. What was left for medical use was opium, cocaine and morphine when they received a lesser drug Schedule of 2.

Hope for Marijuana’s return to Glory
There are several states in the U.S that have decriminalized marijuana, either fully or for medical purposes. Medical marijuana should be allowed to be used nationwide, like other countries. States that have legalized marijuana in some way, are becoming inundated with requests to open dispensaries. Other states are learning from them by studying models of those who have put different types of dispensaries in place. California has a local delivery service for the Hollywood, Burbank and Santa Barbara areas. Other areas in California can order and receive their delivery within 48 hours for medical marijuana. There are several places on the internet that will ship seeds to buds across the country and beyond the borders. Medical marijuana is natures’ gift and should be used for that purpose, as it was intended. Every plant has a purpose. Marijuana is sorely under-utilized in this country!

Marijuana Delivery Services

A Layman understands of the difference between Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa and why it’s important.


icon  27 Sep, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

The last time I bought Marijuana was after I returned from Vietnam in 1972. My only thought was could I trust the seller and was it good enough to get high on. My choices were dictated as much by cost as it was on quality. Typically, we had Mexican, Panamanian or some that the seller claimed to be from Thailand. One never knew really what you were getting and only by going home and smoking it would you know if you received quality for your money. Home or laboratory grown was virtually unheard of at that time as acquiring seeds was a daunting task.

As many people may have in their youth smoked Marijuana (cannabis) recreationally now find themselves requiring Medical Marijuana for health reasons they suddenly find that it is not just a matter of looking to your local connection to purchase something to get you buzzed. You are now seeking a product to save your life or to enhance the quality of your life.

Today we need to look to individual growers and suppliers such as the Pot Valet to provide us this much-needed product and information. Growers such as Pot Valet offer the most common strains and have also moved into the Cannabis Hybrid market that has proven to deliver the best of both the Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa plants in entirely new strains. This allows the grower to cross breed the plants to produce the best product to address specific medical issues.

So I will attempt in this article to help you understand today’s market in Medical Marijuana and the choices that you have when purchasing it.

The Medical Marijuana products are broken down into three main categories or strains of the plant. Each one has different qualities and offers different degrees of benefit to the user. Choosing the correct product for you is a lot like shopping for fresh produce or fresh flowers. Each person has his own preference and you look for something that appeals to your taste. You look for color, aroma, and texture that you find appealing. We will discuss two of those strains in this article.

It is important that you understand the effects of each strain as a medical product to treat the symptoms you have and the other effects that come along with the medical relief. Your day to day schedule will dictate what you choose because the effects can be diametrically different. One strain may make you want to crash on the couch and binge on popcorn and Netflix while another may give you a feeling of need to get busy and do something.

1st Let’s learn the different strains by name and the history of its development. Through genetic manipulation and cross plant pollination, individual growers such as the Pot Valet have produced unique strains of each product.
Cannabis Indica:

In 1785, a famous biologist published a description of a species of Cannabis, named Cannabis Indica. Discovered in the Hindu Kush mountain range was a hearty cannabis plant that can seem to be able to grow in almost any climate condition.

Cannabis Indica resembles a tall bush with wide fat leaves primarily dark green with a hint of purple at the edges. Usually, cone-shaped, bushy, densely branched plant with dark green, broad fat leaves often times tinged with purple. Indica has a shortened flowering growth life because of its chlorophyll content. Making this a favorite for indoor cannabis cultivation because of its bush-like growth patterns and for the outdoor growers they benefit from an early flowering season.

Cannabis Sativa:
Sativa has its first evidence of historical roots in Asia, the Middle East, China and parts of North Africa.

There is a vast recorded history of Cannabis being used as a source of strong fiber, oil, food, and medicine. There is early evidence of it being used for medicinal purposes as ointments, potions, and teas. The paper was another product that was made from Cannabis. If you have every rolled a joint from a good strain of Marijuana you would have noticed it was high in oil content. This allowed Cannabis to also provide many essential oils. I have been told the seeds are a good source of protein however, for now; it is just hearsay to me.

Growing wild in nature the Cannabis Sativa plant can grow and invade like weeds. Sativa plants are quite tall, sparsely branched and tend to have long, narrow leaves. Better grown outdoors as they can reach heights of up to 20 feet. The time necessary for the flowering stage usually spans 9 to 15 weeks. The buds grow long and narrow, and not too densely packed. The bud may be tinted slightly purple if it was grown in a cooler climate a warmer climate may produce a dark orange or even red tint.

Now that you understand a bit about the history of the two main strains of Medical Marijuana, Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa and its growing properties you need to make a decision which one is best for your situation.

Cannabis Indica is thought to be the better hereditary qualities for restorative cannabis due to development periods and unrivaled inebriants. Today, a therapeutic cannabis cultivator can deliver any qualities required for a specific kind of pharmaceutical. An illustration is an amnesia, better treated with a cerebral high that a substantial headed body stone buzz, in this manner a producer can pick certain hereditary attributes suited to particular restorative conditions.

Some alleviation has been found for Anxiety, Insomnia, Pain and Muscle Spasms.

Cannabis Sativa hereditary control has brought about a greater amount of an inebriant use. The cerebral impacts of sativa now prompt medicinal achievements for side effects like amnesia and low vitality levels.

Some alleviation can be found for Depression, ADD, Fatigue and Mood Disorders.

Cannabis Sativa my influence heart rate, circulatory strain, and transient memory.

Cultivators, for example, Pot Valet have additionally moved into the Cannabis Hybrid market that has demonstrated to convey the best of both plants in an altogether new strain. This permits the cultivator to breed the plants to create the best item to address particular therapeutic issues.

Sativa and Indica have been reproduced together for quite a long time making energizing new cross-breed strains of cannabis with fabulous individual hereditary traits. The decision of cannabis hereditary qualities develops each day.

I will address the Cannabis Hybrid products available at Pot Valet in my next article

Should I be in the Marijuana Business or just a supplier?


icon  14 Sep, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

With the advent of more and more states legalizing the production, delivery and dispensing of marijuana, one would think that it is a very profitable business in a free market. Sure, maybe the black market was to some degree taken out of the equation this does not remove the principles of supply and demand.

As more and more people are jumping in to grow the product and deliver it to the dispensary it will result in too much supply and not enough demand. This will force the price of the product down. So those who simply love the product and are not interested in profit, they can grow their own or enjoy the price benefits of an oversupply! This appears to be the case in Oregon and Washington State.

It should be noted that in the United States it is still a Federal Crime to grow and sell marijuana. This is true even if it is legal in your state for both recreational and medical purposes. So it would be well advised to follow the laws of your state before investing time and money in growing, delivering and dispensing marijuana.
All states that have legalized it have laws in place. Some even limit the number of licenses that will be issued every year. It is best to look at your states laws and get an attorney to help you in starting. It also includes the type of marijuana business – are you wholesaling to dispensaries or retailing?

If you take Colorado for example, if you grow more than 6 plants or produce more than 2 ounces, you have to get the license. It will require a separate city and state license with additional license depending on if it is recreational or medical operation.

As with any business, you need to do your research. Do not assume that you will get rich overnight or at all. It is still market forces. So what is the cost to open up a marijuana store? One source has it at a low end of about $43,000 to a high end of about $135,000. One has to consider the long-term return on investment.

This is similar to the gold rush in the 1800’s in America. There were a few that became wealthy by striking gold, and there were much more who became wealthy supplying picks and shovels to the want to be minors. Maybe it would be advisable to look at all aspects of this business, see what your niche is. Supplying the paraphernalia that goes with marijuana industry or even being an information source such as a marijuana membership website might be a good alternative. A good example is Medical Marijuana Business News. They have a handbook you can buy.
Whatever you decide, enjoy the product if that is your choice in life. We are just glad that governments are starting to realize it should be a choice.

Will Marijuana users see more Freedom this Election Year?


icon  06 Sep, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

During the Regan administration, Nancy Regan announced the “War on Drugs”, but the demand for the product far outweighed the politics.  This year could turn out to be a monumental year for marijuana to be on the ballot. More states than ever before will vote on easing the restrictions on the use of marijuana. States are voting on allowing medical marijuana and other states are looking to fully legalize its recreational use.

This may seem like a blast from the past, but investors are seeing dollar signs in a new industry.  This situation may hinder more than help the movement as big companies may be looking to cash in. So what about the crime rate as some have argued? What about big business monopolizing the industry?  In Colorado, which legalized buying cannabis, the law enforcement and courts are no longer wasting the taxpayers’ money going after people for smoking pot.  Actually there has been an 80% drop in charges for marijuana related crimes and a 23% drop in all drug related charges. And arguably the issue for taxes has far outweighed expectations in Colorado with $125 million, yes, million, collected in 2015.  This was not just derived from the pot industry but also from the tourists that it brings to the state.  With the laws changing this year to allow tourists to purchase as much as a Colorado resident, that tourism industry will continue to grow.

Colorado has adopted a public approach to marijuana by funding local public schools, youth services, and behavioral health programs.  Many opponents have a hard time arguing when the money going to help schools, communities and the youth. Additionally, Colorado businesses have earmarked cannabis money for cleaning up highways and communities.

Statistics don’t lie and according to The Free Thought Project out of Colorado; teen cannabis use has declined, deaths related to painkillers has declined, prescription drug use has declined and even violent crimes have significantly decreased.

However, marijuana businesses are finding the financial world not as receptive to their line of work.  Many business owners are finding it harder to get lines of credit from local banks.  Even checking accounts are hard to come by for fear of retaliation from the federal government. Many banks are reluctant to accept the responsibilities associated with the risk of accepting or housing money from a deity whose business is still illegal under federal law.  Another major issue is the tax code that forbids businesses from taking normal business deductions.  Will this year’s federal and national elections chance this?  That is yet to be seen.

These businesses are facing tough decisions about their finances.  The Treasury Department even issued guidelines that go so far as to say that if the banks are involved with a marijuana business, the bank should monitor that customer for “suspicious activity”.  So, why are banks not going to bars to monitor the alcohol activity?  Banks and financial institutions are not willing to accept the obligations associated with the marijuana businesses.

A credit union in Denver went as far as to try to set up the first financial institution serving exclusively to the cannabis business.  However, the obstacles from regulations set up by the government has made it impossible to move ahead.  Again, we will have to wait to see if a change in elected officials will transform this awkward situation.

So, all of this leads us to the questions surrounding this election season.  According to Fortune magazine, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree that they are both pro pot, to a certain extent. This has the advocates for medicinal marijuana hoping that eventually a federal bill will legalize medical use in all states.  Trump also endorses medical use and goes further to say that the recreational use of cannabis should be determined by each state.

Yes, this election season will be interesting.

My Funniest Marijuana Delivery Story


icon  20 Aug, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

Delivering marijuana isn’t exactly a job that many people have across America.  With the federal government still keeping strict laws on the use of marijuana, many people, even those in states where marijuana is legal, do not feel that they should order it in case people think badly of them or in case they end up breaking a law.  Because of that, you don’t really see many funny pot delivery stories, so here, I’ll share a funny moment or two with you.

Bush Baby
There was the time I took a pot delivery to a client quite late at night. I didn’t think much of the late night order, after all, I deliver until midnight every day that I work.  This time however, I was not prepared for what happened.

As I approached the address and thought to myself what a nice home it was, I heard a noise from the bushes beside the garden path.  I looked over and to my amazement, there was a man there.  He motioned to me to come over so I did – with some caution.

“Put it over there” he hissed in a loud whisper like he was trying not to draw attention to himself.  I looked over to where he was pointing and I saw a drain chute that was just the right size for the parcel I was holding to fit.  I did as instructed and then he signaled to me to come back.

I went over to him so that he could sign for the delivery and as he was signing, he quietly explained that he was staying over at his mothers, who didn’t approve of marijuana use.  The guy was a frequent visitor at his mother’s home and would stay there for a few days at a time, so when he’d run out of his marijuana edibles, he’d order some more late at night after she’d gone to sleep and wait in the bushes for the delivery so that his mother would never find out.

I was amazed.  Now that was pretty funny.  But it wasn’t the funniest story.  I’m just getting you warmed up.

Don’t Order Pot When You’re Drunk
Whilst many medical marijuana users are sensible about making their orders, we do have the odd one or two that make their order when they’re really drunk, late at night.  There was one time, where one particular customer must have drank the entire liquor store before he ordered with us.

I turned up at his door, around 30 minutes after his order had come through and I confirmed that he was the customer.  He was so drunk he could barely stand.  He looked at me out of one eye, and slurred, “are you the delivery guy?  Where’s my pizza?”

I explained that I wasn’t there with pizza and that I was delivering his marijuana order.

At this point a woman came to the door and apologized for her husband’s state.  She explained that he’d had a little to drink to try to unwind after work and had had a few too many.

That’s when the guy handed me 70 bucks!

I was in shock.  I told him to take the money back and that he’d already paid for his order.  He was quite insistent that I keep my $5 tip.  He kept saying over and over “No, I always tip the delivery guy.  That’s your $5”.

I told him he’d made a mistake and he got a little louder.  He started to explain his math.

“$20 and $20 that’s 2 plus 0 plus 2 plus 0, so $4….” Dramatically grabbing the notes back out of my hand again and waving them in the air.

“$10, $10, $10….” Grabbing the 3 remaining $10 bills out of my hand”

“So this is three.”

“I put these with those, and you’ve got 5 bills there.  So $5.”

Until this point, the guy’s wife had stood there looking a little perplexed and she suddenly looked at me and said, “He’s not going to let you go without taking it.  He thinks he’s some kind of wizard.  Just take the tip and have a good evening”.

To which the guy stuffed the money back into my hand and got pulled back indoors by his wife who had taken the parcel off me whilst her husband was doing his sums.

That was funny.  And it meant that I made the biggest tip that I think I’ve ever made in my life.

Marijuana Legalized States In 2016


icon  01 Aug, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Paul

Already in 2016, there have been plenty of missions around the country in the fight against legalization of marijuana. So far, there have been over 50 initiatives in place around the United States in an effort to legalize or at least decriminalize the substance for either medical or recreational purposes.

So far, cannabis is legal for both recreational and medical use in Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska. In Washington DC, it is legal to use for recreational and medical use too but it is not available to purchase.

There are a further 20 states who have opted to legalize marijuana for medical purposes too. These states are:
• Arizona
• California
• Connecticut
• Delaware
• Hawaii
• Illinois
• Maine
• Maryland
• Massachusetts
• Michigan
• Minnesota
• Montana
• Nevada
• New Hampshire
• New Jersey
• New Mexico
• New York
• Pennsylvania
• Rhode Island
• Vermont

Despite so many states choosing to legalize the substance to some degree, these decisions have done nothing to alter the viewpoint of the Federal Government who maintains that using marijuana for any purpose is still a federal offense.

It looks like, over the remainder of the year, an additional 10 states could see pot legalized for recreational use as well as medicinal purposes. This would be a major breakthrough for supporters. There were an additional 7 states that had been in talks about the legalization for recreational use of the drug, but unfortunately, those states missed the deadline or they didn’t make it past the consideration stage. It’s thought that medical marijuana could be allowed in Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Tennessee before 2016 is out.

There are big hopes that 2016 will be a successful year for marijuana legalization, especially as it is an election year. According to the Marijuana Policy Project, a group backing six of the states aiming to legalize marijuana, presidential election years encourage more young people to get involved. With more young people thinking about politics and learning more about legislation and other issues, 2016 is likely to be a good year for marijuana legalization.

In addition to the states considering legalizing medical or recreational marijuana, there are also 15 states that have considered decriminalizing marijuana this year. Although 6 of these states have missed their deadlines to put forward a change in this law, this could still mean benefits for those states. It would mean that although the states may not have laws in place for citizens being allowed to use marijuana, people would not be prosecuted for possessing small amounts of the substance or using it. It should be noted however, that although there are 15 states considering decriminalizing marijuana, this does not mean that those states are any closer to legalizing it and are more than likely not even considering it. This makes the possibility of legalization for either medical or recreational purposes a little less hopeful for citizens of those states.

Despite some believing that decriminalization will do very little for those states considering it, some believe that both decriminalization and legalization are both highly advantageous to the state’s economy. Even President Barack Obama has identified the costs that would be saved by the United States if fewer people were incarcerated due to minor cannabis related offenses. Even if marijuana isn’t legalized at all in certain states, simply decriminalizing it could still be enough to make big savings across the US.

In recent months, it’s not only been Liberal Democrats who have been seeing the economical and ethical reasons why prohibiting marijuana isn’t a sensible idea. Even some from the Republican Party have admitted that it is expensive to incarcerate individuals. With more people in the government understanding the cost implications that criminalization has on the country. This could mean a shift in focus from complete prohibition to at least decriminalization.

Although there have been significant changes in the opinions of members of the US government when it comes to marijuana, the marijuana movement has still lost one of it’s main supporters. The chairman of Progressive Insurance, Peter Lewis has donated over $40 million to multiple marijuana campaigns over the years since the 1980s passed away in 2013. Whilst there are still several generous investors stepping forward to try to fill his place, we still don’t yet know if they will be able to offer enough to keep the motion moving forward towards success. Despite three of the main marijuana project groups and 6 deep-pocketed individuals donating as much as possible towards the cause, there still doesn’t seem to be nearly enough money available to fight the federal government.

It would seem that the only thing to do now is to wait for the result of the Presidential Election to find out what the future holds for cannabis within America.

Pot Valet Service for Marijuana

What is the Best Part about Using a Pot Valet Service for Marijuana?


icon  21 Jun, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

In order to purchase medical marijuana online, you need to be very savvy. There are lots of websites out there that may deceive people by saying that they are legitimate marijuana selling companies when actually they are not.

The problem with purchasing marijuana online is that you cannot legitimately verify the products until you get hold of them and try them out. Most of the time, the buyers end up frustrated with the products delivered because the quality they received is not what they expected. To avoid this from happening, it is best to buy marijuana products only from a trusted Pot valet company. How will you know if a cannabis valet company is reputable or not? The best way to know this is by asking someone who has purchased the product online and was satisfied with the products delivered to them. You can also ask local dispensaries for recommendations on what website to buy medical marijuana from online.

Pot Valet Service

Purchasing Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana is used by individuals to treat pain for some major illnesses. But, there are some buyers who are having a hard time purchasing the prescription or don’t have any idea of how to get started with the process. First, your need to be an eligible buyer and/or your present condition is covered to be able to get medical marijuana.

Some treatable conditions include multiple sclerosis, muscle spasms, anxiety, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, sleep disorders and others. You are also eligible for medical marijuana if you use it to treat pains or stress disorders due to an accident.

If you think you are eligible, your next step is to discuss this with your family physician so that they can assess if you should take the medical marijuana or not. Your physician may then issue you a prescription indicating the dose, the amount you need and instructions on how you should take it. As soon as you get approved, a card will be issued. You can then use this card when purchasing the medical marijuana you need.

Getting Medical Marijuana through a Pot Valet Service

There are different ways to access medical marijuana. First, you can grow your own cannabis up to a certain amount allowed by the government. For instance, Santa Barbara only has a limited number of medical marijuana dispensaries so they urge card-carrying patients to grow their own marijuana.

Another way to get access to medical weed is to visit a dispensary in your city where you can buy certain amounts of medical marijuana as well as other cannabis paraphernalia.

And lastly, you can have it delivered right at your doorsteps through a registered delivery cannabis valet service. You can do this by ordering your items online. Your items will be delivered to you safely and easily any time of the day to your home.

Pot Valet is certified and guaranteed to meet the best standards of medical marijuana in different parts of the United States. Why bother going to your local collective if you can have it conveniently delivered to your home safely and discreetly? Medical marijuana delivery has never been easier with a pot valet service.

Marijuana, Its Various Names and Options for Purchase and Growth

Marijuana, Its Various Names and Options for Purchase and Growth


icon  31 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

Marijuana has, and still is, becoming increasingly popular, not just with millennials, but with those in all age groups from Generation X, to baby boomers, and even in some cases those from the Silent Generation. With that said, general interest in the various products offered to consumers has grown right along with this increase in popularity, and interest in the different strains and their names has reached an all time high.

Its no wonder people are interested in all the various strains however, because some of them have down right interesting names. Some of the most famous strain names include: Purple Haze, White Widow, Pineapple Express, Kush, Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, Grape Ape, Durban Poison and more. How these strains got their names however, is another question all together, though one with a relatively simple answer.

3 Factors to Choose From

 Most cannabis strains obtain their name based off of one of three factors: the way they look, (specifically in relation to coloring), the way they taste and/or smell, and where they originate from. For example: the strain of weed known as Purple Haze, gets its name from the clearly purplish ting it exhibits, while the strain of weed known as Pineapple Express gets its name from the very pineapple like aroma it expels both before and during smoking and the strain of weed known as Durban Poison gets its name by originating in Durban, South Africa.

Regardless of which strain and/or name strikes you as most desirable however, mmj is fast becoming a standard within society, especially in regards to medical marijuana. In fact, consumers are now able to buy medical marijuana more easily than ever before, with more states legalizing medical marijuana every year and more dispensers opening up all the time. Furthermore, with the influx of business, many medical marijuana dispensaries are now even offering marijuana delivery services, which is great for those who may be unable to leave their home for various medical or personal reasons.

Overall however, no matter what your reason for smoking is, nor which stain you choose to enjoy, mmj is clearly on the rise and options for purchasing, as well as the number of products and strains available, are increasing every day. In fact, many of the strains we know and love today are being bred to create new and even more inventive strains, ensuring there really is/will be a strain for everyone’s liking.

How to Buy Legal Marijuana Online

How to Buy Legal Marijuana Online


icon  27 May, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Demo Editor

So you’ve made the decision to venture into the medical marijuana scene. Congratulations, it’s a big decision. A decision that requires a lot of research in order to determine what your best options are. When it comes to medical marijuana there are plenty of dispensaries at your disposal. But did you know that you can order your marijuana products and have them delivered to your residence in an hour? Yep, that’s totally possible. And legal.

The Process of Buying Marijuana Online

  1. Like we mentioned before, research is key. Some sites claiming to sell legal cannabis can actually be scamming you. Weedmaps is a great tool to use when looking for a reliable delivery service. The site offers information the many services that offer delivery, as well as ratings from people who have used the service before. Take a look a few to compare their products, service areas, and prices before deciding.
  1. Once you’re done deciding most sites as you to register. Be sure to have your doctor’s recommendation on hand because you’re going to have to upload it to the site in order to complete your order, along with your state-issued ID. As soon as you’re verified the registration process is complete, meaning you are free to order at any given time between the operating hours.
  1. Deciding what to order can be a bit overwhelming. Some sites over popup chats with Budtenders who can answer any questions you may have. If you pick a service that doesn’t have a chat available read through each of the products thoroughly. Know the difference between different strains- sativa, indica, and hybrids. Product selection varies by service but spend time viewing the edibles, concentrates, topicals and prerolls to decide if any of those options appeal to you.
  1. Once you’ve filled your cart you simply enter your number and address and wait for your product to arrive. Most dispensaries operate on a cash only basis because of the struggles to obtain access to a banking system. Some sites offer you location updates while you wait. Others provide you a timeline for when you can expect delivery. Most companies advertise delivery in an hour while others can be expected to arrive as soon as 10 minutes after ordering. You’ll have to show the delivery person your ID for verification, then you’re off with your purchase.

The Future of the Cannabis Industry

Nationwide, pot delivery services have nearly tripled in three years, from 877 to 2,617, according to Weedmaps. It’s easy to see why. Weed on wheels allows patients the advantage of not needing to get out of their homes to obtain medication. Thus, avoiding the stress and, discomfort of manually going into a dispensary. The act of delivery services isvery smooth and can be completed within a matter of a few clicks of a mouse. Marijuana delivery is the future of the cannabis industry, are you ready to leap into the future?

Where to Purchase Your Medical Marijuana

Where to Purchase Your Medical Marijuana?


icon  18 May, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Demo Editor

It is no secret that marijuana as a whole has become increasingly more accepted by the general public, as well as by the courts, in the United States over the past few decades. In fact, in many cases, states all across America have begun to legalize the use of marijuana, if not for recreational purposes, then at least for medical, with the number of states which have legalized the substance in some form or anther reaching 24.

With that said, the more readily available marijuana becomes, the more consumer demand for being able to buy legal marijuana online increases as well. Therefore, various medical marijuana delivery services have begun to crop up all over the nation, offering customers the benefit of being able to buy and consume marijuana, without ever needing to leave the comfort of their homes.

How to Get Medical Marijuana Online

The question then arises however, where can I get medical marijuana and how can I get medical marijuana, including online? The answer to these is fairly simple. First, one needs to be at least eighteen years of age and see a doctor who is licensed to give out “red cards” (i.e. prescriptions which prove the user is afflicted with an illness and/or injury that is treated via medical marijuana).

Then one would need to find a dispensary to buy from — there are plenty of physical dispensaries all over as well as sites (such as WeedMaps), which specifically map out where top rated dispensaries are. However, if one wishes to purchase their marijuana online they will need to do an online search. Also it is important to note that if one does opt for delivery services, they need to make sure it is legal within their city as well as within their state, as various cities prohibit the delivery of cannabis products, regardless of whether it is for medical or recreational use. Lastly, one would need to choose and order the product they desire, then present their red card and ID upon the product’s arrival.

Overall, this really is a relatively easy process to go through, weather you are planning to purchase your marijuana in a dispensary or have it delivered to you via online services. Furthermore, if you are interested in finding out which illnesses/injuries qualify for legal medical marijuana purchase and consumption, there are numerous sites that make this information available to the general public. So if you find yourself in pain and believe marijuana may help you, find a local doctor who will be able to examine you and determine if this is indeed the case, get your red card, and become a part of the cannabis movement today.

How Can I Get Medical Marijuana

How Can I Get Medical Marijuana?

Most people read or hear about using marijuana as a way to handle their illnesses, yet they have no clue how to go about getting the prescription or how to even begin the process of having access to medical marijuana. In order to be able to get medical marijuana, you have to make sure that you are eligible or rather your condition is covered under those in which medical marijuana can be prescribed.

Some of these conditions include: arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, muscle spasms, sleep disorders, anxiety, Crohn’s disease, etc.  If you have also been in an auto accident, and experience some pains or stress disorders as a result, you might be eligible to be prescribed medical marijuana as a way to treat your condition.

Once you fall under the category, the next step is to speak to your family physician or a doctor so that the risk can be assessed. After this, your doctor will prescribe the medical marijuana as they see fit in its ability to control or reduce the symptoms of your condition. Once approved, you are then given a card. With this card, you are now eligible to use medical marijuana as a means of coping with your sickness or symptoms.

In terms of getting the cannabis, there are a variety of ways. Firstly, you can grow your own up a certain amount, depending on what city you live in. For example, Santa Barbara does not have a lot of medical marijuana dispensaries so they encourage card-carrying patients to grow theirs.

The second way to get it is to visit a dispensary in your city in which you can purchase amounts of medical marijuana and other cannabis paraphernalia.

Thirdly, you can have it right at your doorsteps by using a registered delivery service and finally there is always the option of buying medical marijuana online.

The marijuana industry in America is booming. People have started to take cannabis very seriously and are open to its medical benefits. By no means has this been an easy struggle. To reach this point, proponents have battled against a stubborn system and unconvinced people for several years. Unfortunately, the struggle hasn’t ended yet. While many states have taken a positive step towards medical marijuana legalization, there are several that haven’t. But some people are unwilling to give up and they are:

 Ricardo Baca is the world’s first marijuana editor and the creator of The Cannabist. Everyone who likes or consumes marijuana has read ‘The Cannabist’ at least once. This publication is a major force in the industry and looks to enlighten people about local marijuana, analysis of the industry, and its regulations.

Justin Gover

There are many people who believe that marijuana can’t be used to treat medical ailments. Justin Gover would prove them wrong. He’s the CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals; it’s based in the U.K and is a biopharmaceutical company that has experimented with cannabis-derived medications, for several years now. Recently, the company developed a drug called Epidiolex that treats a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. This medicine uses cannabidiol, which is found in cannabis. He clearly proves that marijuana does have medical benefits.

Steve Deangelo

Steve Deangelo is a well-known name in the medical and recreational marijuana industry.

Medical marijuana in Los Angeles and other areas of California can be obtained easily upon prescription. It is one of the most sought after drugs in the state and is easily available online as well as in various dispensaries.

California boosts the highest sales of medical marijuana in the US. Los Angeles being the largest city of the State has a fair share of these sales.

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder
Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

 

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical marijuana is often used to address high levels of pain in different kinds of illnesses and for patients with serious problems like cancer and other such problems. However, recent evidence suggests that medical marijuana can be used to treat neurological disorders as well. Research conducted by several institutions has shown that medical marijuana has a positive effect on patients suffering from depression, anxiety disorders and other problems. It can also be used to treat bipolar disorders.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is when you alternate between extreme depressive phases and elation without warning. It affects your energy levels, mood, and your activity levels to an extent that day-to-day tasks can become very difficult. This disorder shouldn’t be taken lightly. In many cases, people just dismiss it as being moody and don’t take steps to treat it. That can harm your health and well-being, personal life, and your professional life as well.

What is Bipolar Disorder

Does Medical Marijuana Help?

 

There’s considerable debate about this, but there has been enough positive response from research participants to consider medical marijuana a valid option for treatment. This plant influences the body’s endocannabinoid system. This particular system is present in all mammals and is involved in processes like pain sensation, mood, appetite, and memory. It also mediates the effect of cannabis like marijuana.

Does Medical Marijuana help

According to researchers, the THC and CBD cannabinoids found in medical marijuana can stabilize your mood and address the symptoms of bipolar disorder. THC can, under the right dosage and circumstances, have an antidepressant and anti-anxiety effect on patients. CBD has similar effects as well. There is potential here and researchers are busy trying to understand how to utilize it safely.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing


icon  27 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

 

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

Dabbing is a method through which people medicate themselves with cannabis concentrates. PotValet is committed to offer only the safest and cleanest concentrates. The oils for dabbing are obtained through numerous extraction methods, giving the dabs different names such as BHO (butane hash oil), rosin, CO2 oil, budder and wax. All of these products are powerful medicines for those dealing with chronic pain and nausea.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

You have probably heard some concerns regarding dabbing. While the process itself is not at all dangerous, some extraction methods may carry the potential to harm the consumer. For example, chemical contaminants like butane may have some hazardous consequences. PotValet offers the best concentrates, which are only RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) and CO2 based. Let’s see what each of these extraction methods has to offer.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The RSO extraction method is preferred to the one of water or alcohol. It involves the use of naphthalene and it is prepared with the intent of delivering high amounts of 100% bioavailable THC that will fight cancers and other severe illnesses. This is why the RSO extraction is preferred amongst those who suffer from serious diseases. It should be noted that traditional RSO is a high THC product.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The CO2 Extraction Method

This method used carbon dioxide under extreme pressure. The result is the separation of cannabinoids from the plant. More than this, the CO2 extraction decarboxylates the cannabis completely, meaning that anything obtained is 100% bioavailable and can be consumed in any way – eaten, smoked or vaped. It doesn’t matter how you consume this concentrated, it will be super effective.
The RSO and CO2 extractions are preferred by PotValet because they offer better results than the water or alcohol extractions. As said earlier, the THC obtained after such extractions is more effective and more bioavailable than the one obtained through other methods.

How Does Dabbing Work?


icon  23 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Does Dabbing Work?

In case you are somehow involved with cannabis, whether medically, recreationally or from a business point of view, then you have probably heard about “dabbing”. It’s been over a decade since this method of consumption has been around, but the onset of more progressive extraction methods has brought on more cannabis concentrates, making dabbing more popular than ever.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate. The dabbing method involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling it through a dab ring. The dabs are obtained by extracting cannabinoids, including THC, with a solvent, which is usually butane or carbon dioxide. The final result is a sticky oil that is commonly known as shatter, wax, budder or BHO (butane hash oil). The good news for some is that there is the possibility of extracting only the THC, which is the really medicine in marijuana.

The Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Concentrates are so beneficial because they give the patient a powerful dose of the medicine. Those who suffer from chronic pain or nausea have reported that dabbing gave them immediate relief. The quantity of flowers to be smoked in order to get the same results would not be possible in patients who really need the medicine.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Are There Any Dangers?

The answer to this question is yes. Making extracts can be very dangerous if not controlled in a professional environment. Professional extractors shy away from the precarious “open” extraction method that can be conducted at home. They opt for the “closed” extraction method, which is safer, done in professional environments, with sophisticated equipment. More than this, there are many other extraction methods available. For example, the CO2 or the ice-water extraction; these are much safer and reduce the possibility of an explosion.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

While dabbing may be in an awkward phase at the moment, there are many advantages associated with this method. All in all, cannabis concentrates have a lot to offer patients and cannabis consumers. Dabbing is just one ingenious method amongst others.

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana


icon  20 Jan, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana

At this point, only 6% of medical studies about marijuana are analyzing its medicinal properties. It seems there are at least 2 active chemicals with medicinal applications in this plant. These chemicals are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD impacts the brain without the high, the THC provides the high and pain relief, plus other properties. With that being said, let’s have a look at the top 3 most popular uses for medical marijuana.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Can Be Used to Treat Glaucoma

The eye disease known as glaucoma causes the pressure in the eyeball to increase. This damages the optic nerve and ends up in loss of vision. Marijuana can be used to treat and prevent glaucoma, as it decreases the pressure in the eye, according to the National Eye Institute. The effects of marijuana slow down the way the disease is progressing, and in the end, it may prevent blindness.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Helps Control Epileptic Seizures

A study conducted in 2013 shows that marijuana can prevent the seizures epilepsy is causing. Robert J. DeLorenzo from the Virginia Commonwealth University experienced with marijuana on epileptic rats. The results of the study showed that marijuana can rid the rats of seizures for about 10 hours. Like THC, other active chemicals in marijuana, bind to the brain cells that control excitability and regulate relaxation.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Stops Cancer From Spreading

The researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco informed in 2007 that CBD prevent cancers from spreading. The study was published in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal, and explained how cannabidiol turns off a gene known as Id-1. Cancer is triggered by the fact that cancer cells make more copies of this gene than of non-cancerous cells, and this way the cancerous cells spread through the entire body. The scientists studied breast cancer cells in the lab, which after being treated with cannabidiol, had lower Id-1 expression and were less aggressive spreaders.

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs


icon  18 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs?

In spite of all the health benefits medical marijuana has to offer us, scientists and medical professionals have always wondered if smoking marijuana will damage our lungs. After all, we know for sure that smoking in general (cigarettes or tobacco) can have a negative impact over the lungs; so perhaps the smoke of marijuana also does. However, according to a study conducted at Emory University, this may not be the case.

Marijuana

A NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys) cross sectional-analysis discovered that adults between 18 and 59 years old, who smoked one joint (a marijuana cigarette) a day, were able to exhale the same FEV1 (forced expiratory volume, also known as the expiratory volume of air), in one second. Spirometry, which measures a person’s ability to exhale, is the method through which doctors diagnose respiratory illnesses that impair lung function. It was the method applied to the subjects involved in the NHANES study.

Marijuana smokers who smoked more than one joint a day were more likely to develop minor symptoms that were similar to those of bronchitis. These symptoms were a cough and a sore throat. These symptoms seemed to be from very minimal to non-existent, and appeared less often, in subjects who used vaporizers instead of joints.

Marijuana

Vaporizers are used by many marijuana smokers. They heat the plant up just enough for it to release the active chemicals. This means the plant doesn’t need to be combusted. This means it wasn’t the marijuana causing the minor symptoms, but more so the papers used by the subjects to roll their joints.

The current studies confirm what previous studies have proven. In a study performed in 2012, scientists identified that persons who smoked weed each day, for 7 years, experienced absolutely no adverse effects in their pulmonary function. Another study from 2013, conducted by Donald P. Tashkin from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA found out that habitual use of marijuana doesn’t lead to abnormalities in lung function.

Marijuana

More studies will continue as marijuana and medical marijuana are becoming ever so increasingly popular. If you have any questions about getting access to medical marijuana, contact our team for help today.

3 Big Marijuana Myths Busted


icon  16 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Cannabis opponents have, for decades, controlled the message around this popular plant, and have spread a few lies about its actual effects. This caused the use of marijuana to be a stigmata, a cause with effects that haven’t still worn off. The failed and expensive US war on drugs continues, and it seems the criminalization of cannabis users and distributors is a main priority in this war. Some of the governmental agencies continue to stubbornly classify marijuana as dangerous and with no medical value, in spite of the stacks of evidence that prove the contrary.

cannabis

While many know the truth about cannabis (that it is more effective than some prescription drugs in treating some illnesses and that it is healthier than alcohol) and while more than half of Americans want it legalized, the marijuana myths are still around in some mainstream circles. Those who oppose legalization are determined to ignore the evidence.

Here are 3 of the marijuana myths that persist to some degree today, and the facts that debunk them:

cannabis

Myth 1 – Marijuana Causes Brain Damage

This myth surfaced only of late, and it is only based on one study in France. The study examined the brains of 20 heavy cannabis users and 20 non-smokers. There were differences in their brains, in the areas of cognitive and emotional processing. The media took these results to the open public, saying that marijuana reorganizes your brain, while the authors of the study clearly explained the results do not show this.

Cannabis

Myth 2 – Marijuana is Addictive

9% is the number of cannabis users who become addicted, according to a study from the 1990s. This still puts marijuana dependence risk below alcohol, which is 14% and tobacco, which is 24%, according to the same study.

Myth 3 – Marijuana is Worse than Tobacco for Your Lungs

Some argue that, because it is smoked without a filter, marijuana can cause damage to the lungs. A 2012 study on marijuana’s effects over the lungs came up with the conclusion that the marijuana use is not associated with adverse effects on pulmonary function. On top of that, cannabis can be ingested and not smoked. You can inhale it as a vapor, take it in tablet or food form, or rub it on your skin as a lotion or an oil.

The Latest Science Behind Medical Marijuana


icon  14 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Latest Science Behind Medical Marijuana

Until now, almost half of the states in America have legalized medical marijuana. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not regulated it since the drugs remain at the federal level. This forces medical users to search for treatment by themselves.

There are thousands of years since humans have used cannabis, yet only in the past few decades have science professionals begun to really have a grasp on how the wide range of chemicals in cannabis function for the human health.

Medical Marijuana

Ingredients in Medical Marijuana

Among other ingredients, in marijuana there are at least 104 active cannabinoids.  These mimic the action of the brain’s signaling chemicals, which are known as endocannabinoids. These dock with some of the receptors that are situated on the surface of cells. For example, some of the cannabinoids dock with the receptors of adrenaline and serotonin. The most famous chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, substance that is mainly responsible with cannabis’s intoxicating side effects.

Medical Marijuana

Each and every one of these chemicals has a different reaction with different receptors in the brain. As an example, let’s take THCV. This substance blocks the mind-altering effects of THC while in the same time it combats inflammation in the body. These effects may help relieving the Parkinson’s disease’s symptoms and in the same time protect against liver damage. More than this, the same substance changes how the receptor for serotonin acts during psychosis episodes, thus making it a potential treatment for schizophrenia.

In the meantime, the unique activity of CBG at adrenaline and serotonin receptors makes medical marijuana a main candidate for dealing with pain. On the other hand, CBD and CBDA  are great candidates at dealing with nausea. Other possible uses of the cannabinoids in the plant include dealing with epilepsy, PTSD, stroke and even drug addiction.

Medical Marijuana

Besides the ingredients mentioned here, cannabis also contains 400 other compounds. Amongst these ones, some of them are flavonoids, limonenes and terpenes. These can also be found in herbs like oregano, and they have aromatic purposes, giving different marijuana strains their scents, tastes and distinctive colors.

More and more medical circles are accepting the use of medical marijuana, as scientific evidence shows that marijuana helps in the treatment of some illnesses. After cannabis has been legalized in some areas of the country, more and more people are starting to view this plan differently. The health benefits medical marijuana has to offer are more evident than ever. Many remarkable medical professionals have come to support the use of the plant as a treatment helper for many conditions.

Medical Marijuana Slows Down Alzheimer’s Progression

Studies revealed there has been an increase in the number of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This has determined a renewed interest in studies that search for medical solutions against the illness. The legalization of cannabis is seen by many as a new ray of hope for those showing early signs of Alzheimer’s. Marijuana has the ability to block the enzyme responsible with the progression of the disease. More than this, it helps with the prevention of protein clumps, which affect cognition and memory.

Medical Marijuana Stops HIV From Spreading Throughout the Body

Those who are HIV positive can also see benefits from medical marijuana.  Research performed on monkeys has revealed how the active ingredient in cannabis is instrumental in preventing the HI-Virus from spreading. This active ingredient is THC, which when received in daily dosages, leads to healthier cells in the body. Besides, marijuana also helps to improve the appetite, which is good news for those suffering from HIV.

Medical Marijuana Slows Down the Spread of Aggressive Cancer Cells

Research has shown that a substance contained in cannabis can hinder cellular metastasis in a few types of cancer. Related research has as well proven reductions in cellular viability if there is an existence of leukemia cells. The reductions take place at different cellular sequence stages, which signifies that individuals at different phases of the illness may rip off the health benefits. Based on certain records, scientists have utilized substances present in marijuana to exterminate the cancer cellular material, offering relief for leukemia sufferers.

Medical Marijuana for Migraines


icon  24 Dec, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Medical Marijuana for Migraines

Before knowing all about medical marijuana for migraines, it is essential to first identify what a migraine is. The chronic headache that is most likely caused by the spasm and narrowing of blood vessels carrying blood to the brain is known as a migraine. The headache is so intense and can happen from once a year to as often as a few times a week. Besides the pain, other symptoms of a migraine may include nausea, sensitivity and vomiting. The identified factors of a migraine may be stress, caffeine, anger, hormonal imbalances or nicotine.

Finding a solution to cure the pains from migraines is essential. Medical marijuana has been one of these solutions that has helped migraine sufferers release some of the tension and relieve some of the pain from these painful headaches.

Why Use Medical Marijuana for Migraines?

There is scientific proof medical marijuana is an effective treatment for migraines. The main component in marijuana, which is THC, is known to have neuroprotective and analgesic effects that relieve the pain brought on by migraine attacks. With marijuana’s history of being illegal, this surely has not been advertised much as a highly effective treatment for migraines.

More than this, people have also been a little bit scared of using medical marijuana for migraines, thinking the only way to use medical marijuana is by smoking it. This is the wrong idea as there are many other delivery methods that can be used: vaporization, putting cannabis in your foods, or taking it sublingually (in the form of tinctures).

Medical Marijuana for Migraines Being Made Legal

Medical marijuana being made legal should be a welcomed development to those who suffer from migraines and avoid taking prescription drugs because they don’t want the side effects these drugs have. The most common side effects of the medicine for migraines are: sleepiness, fatigue, nausea, racing heartbeat, having difficulties thinking and also numbness. Not to mention some patients become addicted to their painkillers.

Medical marijuana is an alternative treatment for migraines, which doesn’t present any known side effects and it is proven to not develop addiction.

Marijuana and Cancer Treatment

Those interested in marijuana cancer treatment should have a look over the next few paragraphs, and see what this miraculous plant can do.

Marijuana has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. Scientists have discovered cannabinoids, the biologically active components in marijuana, to be biologically active and effective in treating some diseases, including cancer. At present, the US Drug Enforcement Administration has listed marijuana and the cannabinoids under the Schedule I controlled substances, which means is only legal to treat some of the medical conditions in many states.

Marijuana and Cancer Treatment Studies

Marijuana and Cancer

 

Several scientific studies of smoked marijuana discovered that it could be useful in dealing with vomiting and nausea from the cancer treatment of chemotherapy.

A number of reports have discovered that inhaled (used to smoke or perhaps vaporized) marijuana could possibly help in the therapy of neuropathic pain (aches brought on by damaged nerves).

Testing has also proved that smoked marijuana has also helped improve the diet in HIV sufferers. Research has long demonstrated that individuals who used marijuana extract in medical testing tended to require much less pain medication.

Cannabinoids in Marijuana Cancer Treatment

Marijuana and cancer

 

Recently, researchers disclosed that THC along with other cannabinoids like CBD cause slow development and/or trigger death in some forms of cancer cells growing in a laboratory. A few animal scientific studies also suggest that particular cannabinoids can slow growth and also decrease spread of some types of cancer.

There have been a few early medical tests of cannabinoids in the treatment of cancer in human beings and more scientific studies are planned. As the tests to date demonstrate that cannabinoids could be safe in dealing with cancer although, they cannot prove that they assist control or treat the disease.

As of yet, counting on marijuana for cancer treatment as your only means for therapy while staying away from or postponing conventional medical care for cancer could have severe health implications.

Marijuana Can Fight The Fight Against Glaucoma


icon  19 Dec, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Can Marijuana Help Treat Glaucoma?

It is estimated, according to World Health Organization, that glaucoma is the second cause of blindness and about half of Americans with glaucoma are not even aware of it. Studies reveal that glaucoma could be genetic, yet science continues to be uncertain on what causes glaucoma to build and worsen. It’s been debatable over the last several years whether or not marijuana can help treat glaucoma, let’s look at some facts below and  put this discussion to rest.

Medical Marijuana

How Does Marijuana Impact Glaucoma?

What has been discovered is that, together with other treatments, marijuana has significantly diminished vision loss caused by glaucoma. Usually, what causes glaucoma is pressure in the eye. Studies have shown some chemicals in marijuana have the positive effects of reducing the intra-ocular pressure, also known as IOP, by as much as 25%.

Some would say this is an insignificant gain when you are thinking of the side effects of marijuana, but that conclusion doesn’t hold any weight. While marijuana is known to cause some elevated heart risk to some aged patients, the majority of users report little to no side effects when it comes to regular, medicinal use of the plant.

Medical Marijuana

Is Marijuana a Treatment for Glaucoma?

Marijuana is not an all-in-one magical treatment for glaucoma. There are other medicines and remedies such as drops that reduce the pressure in the eye by diluting and other processes. However and unfortunately, these other methods may not be as effective as they are still in the research process. Since there are no other treatments or cures for glaucoma, alternative treatments such as treating glaucoma with marijuana, is not only to be preferred, but may be absolutely necessary at this point.

Medical Marijuana

The research and testing will continue but the next steps are to find a solution so that a new delivery system gets put in place for glaucoma sufferers, which will let them benefit and treat their glaucoma with medical marijuana without the need to smoke it.

Business owners in Colorado have claimed for a while now that legalization of the cannabis drug has improved tourism in the area, but now there is proof.

It has been found in a recent study by the Colorado Tourism Office that many tourists are drawn to Colorado due to its relaxed weed laws and due to the easy accessibility to the substance. For a long time, it had been suggested that the increase in visitors was due to the marketing campaigns put in place, but the study shows that contrary to this belief, the increased marketing spending has not caused the tourism industry to succeed.

 

Ad Campaign And Marijuana Dispensaries Responsible For Tourism Rise

 

Cannabis drug

More than 48% of the time, it was found that tourists cited that Colorado’s relaxed laws on cannabis were the main attraction although the ad campaign has been relatively successful.

Al White, the former boss of the Colorado Tourism office says that the relaxed laws are certainly a significant influence on tourism, although he said that it would be interested to know if the influence was a positive or negative one. Only 8% of those who took the survey said that they had obtained marijuana from a marijuana dispensary.

After having spent $5.3 million to launch their ad campaign, which resulted in 11.1 million households across America seeing the ad, Colorado received around 2.1 million visitors. These leisure tourists brought an estimated $2.6 billion. This is some proof that the advert also helped the tourism trade.

The ad however does not mention marijuana once, although 48% of those who took the survey said that marijuana was influential to a degree.

The legalization of the sale of recreational marijuana was passed on January 1st 2014 and in the first year the same survey was carried out. In that year, 64% of those asked claimed that marijuana had nothing to do with their decision to vacation there. Even those who had traveled due to the relaxed laws in 2014 did not seem to be entirely drawn to Colorado due to the laws. This year, 20% said that they would be more likely to return to Colorado due to the relaxed laws.

 

Future Looks Promising For Colorado’s Tourism

The increased tourism to Colorado has done wonders for the economy. By increasing the sales of marijuana, the substance continues to pour taxes into the economy. Colorado businesses also benefit from the increased income brought by the additional tourists. It is also evident that the relaxed laws on marijuana have not caused any increase in crime rates. If anything, crime in Colorado has seen a marked improvement. It remains to be seen however, how the increased tourism trade could affect Colorado’s crime levels in the longer term.

Interesting Facts About Marijuana That You Should Know

Some Interesting Facts About Marijuana That You Should Know

There Is No Evidence That Young People Will Be Affected By Relaxing Marijuana Laws

Medical Marijuana

Many people who oppose the legalization of recreational or even medical marijuana often try to make the claim that adolescents and young people will suffer as a result of the slacker laws. It has actually been proven however in the states where marijuana has already been legalized that this simply isn’t the case. If anything, there has been a decrease in marijuana abuse amongst younger adults in those states. This is probably because of the legalization taking away the glamor and taboo from the substance and greater availability via legitimate means such as marijuana dispensaries. The decriminalization of marijuana in these states has also seen a decline in the numbers of marijuana related crimes committed by adults.

Marijuana Is Certainly Not A Gateway Drug

Medical Marijuana

Most people who have used marijuana for recreational or medicinal use have never used any other drug apart from those medically prescribed to them. It is the most easily accessible illegal drug however across America, so it is not at all surprising that people who have taken dangerous drugs such as heroin, cocaine and LSD may have used marijuana at some point or another. Trying to say that everyone who uses harder drugs also used marijuana at some point however is like trying to say that everyone who develops a life threatening illness drinks coffee. It means absolutely nothing and certainly doesn’t mean that those who use recreational or medical marijuana will eventually move onto stronger substances.

Marijuana Can Have Effects On Driving

Medical Marijuana

Even though the effects of marijuana on driving are quite slight, marijuana can impair a driver’s sense of awareness and alertness. Whilst it is not as bad as driving under the influence of alcohol, driving whilst smoking marijuana is something that should be avoided. The problem however is that it is very difficult to tell how much of the cannabis drug a driver has used and how recently as marijuana chemicals stay in a user’s system for a long time, even after the effects of the drug has worn off. It is therefore important that users understand the implications of driving within a short time of using marijuana. Even with the mild danger that can be posed due to using marijuana shortly before driving however, there are not many driving offenses that have been recorded as a result of the driver being under the influence of marijuana and those that have been are generally under the influence of another substance such as alcohol at the time.

Cannabis Drug Not Likely Cause For Traffic Accidents


icon  11 Nov, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Cannabis Drug Is Not Likely A Cause For Traffic Accidents

 

Colorado made the decision to legalize the cannabis drug for its
residents in 2012. The opposition to the vote predicted an increase in those driving under the influence of marijuana, and in turn an increase in traffic accidents whilst under the influence of the drug. Some claim that the substance can cause response times to suffer and that the user’s judgment may become impaired when under the influence.

According to statistics published when cannabis was first legalized in Colorado in 2001, there was a spike in traffic accidents involving drivers who had tested positive for marijuana, which campaigners attribute to the relaxed laws. Pot supporters however, argue that before marijuana was legalized, a third of drivers involved in accidents tested positive for marijuana anyway.

Medical Marijuana Detectable For Weeks After Side Effects Wear Off

 

Cannabis DrugEven though statistics do exist, it is actually next to impossible to get realistic statistics from testing. Whilst it is possible to accurately detect how much alcohol a driver still has in their system, when it comes to pot, things are very different. The test for recreational or medical marijuana simply tests for metabolites in the body, which can actually linger for days and sometimes even weeks after marijuana has been used. If a driver tests positive for marijuana, all this tells the police is that they have used marijuana at some point over the past few days. Side effects from using marijuana wear off after a few hours so the driver may actually be perfectly safe to drive.

Legalizing The Cannabis Dispensary Gives Explanation For Surge In Cannabis Users

 

Explaining the statistics of the 2001 statistics for road traffic
accidents becomes simple considering the public’s response to legalization. As marijuana became legally available, it was only to be expected that more drivers would be likely to have used the drug within the days or weeks before their accidents. Of course, the increase in numbers of drivers with pot in their system also means that other groups of people at the time would have had a similar increase in the use of the drug. These statistics do not mean that marijuana is a contributing factor in accidents or fatalities on the roads.

Proving that a driver is ‘stoned’ or not continues to be a difficult case to prove. If highway officers want to pursue any punishments for using marijuana bought legally from a cannabis dispensary and then driving under the influence, then congress will need to have many more debates before they can come to a decision that is fair for the driver. A zero tolerance policy would clearly be unfair, as it is difficult to ensure that your body is completely free from cannabis before driving, especially if you take the drug for medicinal purposes on a regular basis. This would mean that people would not be able to drive for weeks after using the drug.

Medical Marijuana and the 2016 Presidential Election


icon  20 Oct, 2015  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

Looming Election Could Mean Disaster For Marijuana In 2016

The upcoming 2016 presidential elections are looming, Medical Marijuanaand with them come many questions about what this could mean for Americans. Supporters of marijuana legalization are wondering just where the current candidates stand when it comes to the subject of the cannabis drug reform. Is it likely that they are going to support the use of medicinal marijuana or even marijuana legalization for recreation use?

 

Why Are Supporters Of The Cannabis Collective So Concerned?

 

The debate about marijuana has more to do with simply support or opposition to the drug. It is important for candidates to make themselves clear about what will happen when it comes to federal and state legislation. The current laws allow states to make their own rules when it comes to state-wide marijuana legislation, whilst the federal government has its own guidelines too. It is important for voters to know each candidates views so that they can make an informed decision about which candidate best supports their views.

 

Which Candidates Are In Favor Of Legalization?

 

Bernie Sanders and Lincoln Chafee are both democratic candidates. They have both made it clear that they are in supMedical Marijuanaport of allowing citizens to use and carry small quantities of pot without penalty. They also support medicinal use of marijuana. These candidates have even expressed an interest in creating federal decriminalization of cannabis, which would be a huge step for the future of marijuana in America. Other democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley have shown an interest in legalizing the drug.

The republican camp however still shows resistance against the drug as far as federal legalization goes, but they largely are in support of states having the right to create their own laws. There are some candidates however that are fully opposed to the legalization of cannabis such as Mike Huckabee, and who don’t want to see legalization for either federal or state legislation.

 

What’s In Store For The Future?

 

It is a worrying thought for supporters that there could be a huge Medical Marijuanaimpact on medical marijuana reform if the wrong candidate is chosen. There have been many slow but steady changes in accepting the benefits of cannabis with the current president, but if a new candidate is chosen, all of that progress could become undone. The future is uncertain for those businesses that rely on marijuana trade, whilst state economies that have improved since marijuana legalization could also suffer.

Marijuana reform remains an important subject for cannabis collective supporters. It is hoped that the best candidate will be chosen so that those whose health relies on it can have access to this useful substance. So far, it looks like there’s a 50/50 chance that a president will be elected that supports cannabis legalization for America.

Just How Medical Is Medical Marijuana?

How Medical Is Medical Marijuana?

Medical Marijuana is becoming more readily available to those who live in states that are lifting the Medical Marijuanalaws on the substance. Whilst the federal government are sticking stubbornly to their guns that weed is dangerous, many states have now taken advantage of their rights to decide independently on the matter so even if marijuana isn’t legalized across the board, more and more Americans are finding that if they have the correct paperwork, they can legally access prescription cannabis from a marijuana dispensary or buy medical marijuana online.

Whilst some argue that giving medical access to marijuana simply leaves the market open to abuse from those who want to use it for recreational use, there is plenty of research to show that it has many useful medical properties.

Should People Be Allowed To Buy Medical Marijuana Online With These Medical Benefits?

Medical MarijuanaImpressive research statistics show that medical marijuana can effectively remove the nausea and vomiting side effects from chemotherapy treatments.  There is also evidence to show that pain that is experienced whilst undergoing treatment can also be dramatically relieved with this use of cannabis.  Although there are many findings that show that marijuana is effective in dealing with pain, medical professionals still stress that the drug should only be used as a last resort when other medication has been found to be unsuitable or ineffective.

Marijuana has also been shown to improve the sleep routines of users and to significantly reduce the feelings of anxiety in those who suffer from mental health conditions.  It has been so effective in doing this that marijuana is frequently prescribed for those who suffer from PTSD.

Overuse Of The Cannabis Drug Can Lead To Misuse

Even though there are some important benefits to being able to buy medical marijuana online, it isMedical Marijuana still important to treat it with some caution and to ensure that it is regulated to some extent. Marijuana also has many side effects that can be experienced when using it, either for the first time or over prolonged amounts of time. These side effects extend to dizziness, dry mouth, dizziness and fatigue, along with the possibility of addition and abuse. As well as considering allowing those who need the drug to have access to it, the government have recently started to think about how they could possibly reach out and help those who have become dependent on the drug.

As more studies are carried out, many of which are funded by the federal government, it is expected that results will show that marijuana has even more benefits that we are not yet aware of, or that claims will be backed up. Supporters are hoping that new research will help sway the federal government’s minds and encourage them to downgrade the dangerous status of the cannabis drug.

Breakthrough For Marijuana Cannabis Users on Oregon Flights

Breakthrough For Marijuana Cannabis Users on Oregon Flights

On July 1st 2015, a new law was passed in Oregon, making it one of the few states to allow the use of 29894895_Stillmarijuana as a recreational drug, not just for medicinal purposes. This cannabis news means a dramatic change in culture for Oregon and airport security is beginning to see some changes too. Those who are traveling via plane through Oregon will no longer be subjected to penalties if they are caught carrying marijuana cannabis onto planes.

Security More Important Than Passengers Who Buy Marijuana Online

marijuanaPortland International airport is Oregon’s largest, and it has now declared that officials will not be on the look out for passengers carrying small amounts of pot anymore. In the past, passengers traveling through the airport who were caught in possession of even the smallest amounts of pot were criminalized and faced severe consequences. Now, the Transportation Security Administration have explained that they want to place their focuses on the biggest threats to the safety of aviation, and that a passenger will not face any penalties as long as they are following the rules and keeping the amount of marijuana on their person to under one ounce. If you are an Oregon resident, you should be aware that you can purchase up to an ounce when you buy marijuana online when you want to travel.

This new move will see a change in the way that marijuana is handled within the airport. The new procedure that will be followed by officials is for security staff to contact airport police, who will then verify that the passenger in possession of the marijuana has less than one ounce with them and that they are of the legal age for ownership. As long as this checks out, they will be permitted to continue with their travels without further incident.

Warning For Those Traveling To States Who Have Not Legalized The Cannabis Dispensary20131107122201-Marijuana-States-of-America-2011-05-Full

It should be noted that even though Oregon allows the recreational use of the drug, passengers should remember to leave their pot at home if they will be traveling to any other state, as not many states have approved the drug for full recreational use. If you want to simply fly to another airport within Oregon however, then keeping the marijuana with you will be fine.

New Cannabis News Not Pleasing Everyone

The legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes within the state of Oregon was celebrated in Portland on July 3rd with a ‘Weed the People’ rally, however the new guidelines for traveling with the substance on planes, which is usually purchased from an online cannabis dispensary, has not pleased everyone. Whilst passengers haven’t complained about the right to carry pot on board, they have been drawing attention to the seemingly ridiculous rules that although marijuana cannabis is permitted, a canister of hairspray or a bottle of shampoo is still not allowed on flights.

NBA Players want Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief


icon  15 Jul, 2015  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

NBA Players Call for Permission to Use Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief

Medical Marijuana

The federal government is currently taking one, pretty stubborn stance on marijuana, whilst some states are locally legalizing marijuana either for regulated medicinal use or even for full recreational use. This is making the whole subject of marijuana quite complicated.

Whilst there are state relaxations on marijuana, the National Basketball Association, like the feds, are maintaining a full ban on the use of the substance. At present, those players found to be using marijuana, by means of testing or otherwise face suspension amongst a range of other penalties. The question now arises – should the NBA continue it’s blanket ban on the substance for medicinal use now that 23 states and counting have legalized Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief or for other medicinal purposes?

Players Unanimously Agree They Should Be Allowed Access to Medical Marijuana Benefits

10 NBA players have spoken anonymously to express their desires to have the NBA reassess their views medical-marijuana-pain-managementon Marijuana.   Ultimately, the players wish to have marijuana removed from the NBA’s list of banned substances, if for nothing else, for the Medical Marijuana Benefits for those players who have a valid medical prescription for the drug.

The players have a valid point. If a person has a prescription for any drug, then why shouldn’t they be allowed to take it? Medical treatments are given for a reason and the ethics should be questioned when an organization chooses to bar a person from taking something that has been prescribed by a medical profession. Whilst players agree that the NBA shouldn’t necessarily shout about allowing marijuana use amongst players, they believe that players should have the right to access medical marijuana without penalties from the Association.

Changes Wont Come Overnight For Those Who Want To See Medical Marijuana Allowed in the NBA

Medical MarijuanaWhilst the players seem to unanimously agree that the NBA should relax their attitude towards medical marijuana, they understand that the changes won’t come quickly. The NBA works on a bargaining session system, the next of which wont be until 2017. This will be the next possible time that the NBA Players’ Association will be able to discuss the matter of marijuana and its future within the NBA. Whilst this seems a long way off, it does give the Players’ Association, which has the players’ rights as their highest priority, the time they need to put a case together for the safe use of medicinal marijuana in the NBA.

Although there is still a long way to go, and a lot of time in the way, it does seem that there is the possibility for players in the NBA to have the right to use medical marijuana without punishment from the organization. As it seems that players feel strongly about having the right to use medicinal marijuana, it is hoped that when the panel does meet, it will vote in favor of the player’s requests.

New research finds Cannabis Drug to be safer than alcohol

New research finds the Cannabis Drug to be safer than alcohol

Contrary to federal government beliefs, it would seem that the cannabis drug could be even less cannabis-vs-alcoholdangerous than previously thought. The substance remains on the federal government’s list of dangerous drugs, classed as a schedule 1 substance although there have been no recorded cases of any deaths being directly attributed to the use of marijuana. In comparison to other drugs, including legal alcoholic beverages, it looks like marijuana by a long shot is the safest.

Interesting Cannabis News for Supporters of Legalization

In one research study carried out earlier this year, it was found that the risk of death associated with any known drug could be quantified with the use of charts. The effects were quite startling. Alcohol seems to be the leader as the most deadly abused substance, with heroin following closely behind. Tobacco falls somewhere in the middle, but by a long shot, marijuana is a very low risk substance, according to the study,

imrs.phpWeed has been found to be around 114 times less likely to cause death than alcohol. This is the result considering the lethal dose required for death in comparison to the actual amount that a user of any given substance may actually use. Marijuana was in fact the only substance tested that gave almost no risk of death at all.

Considering the many bills and debates centered around the legalization of marijuana at the moment, this Cannabis News comes at a good time, although it’s by no means new news. Around a decade ago, a similar experiment was carried out, which used very slightly different calculations. The findings of that experiment yielded almost identical results to this most recent test. This research, along with other research of a similar caliber could be what the government and lawmakers need to make their decisions regarding the drug.

Hope for the People to Legally Buy Medical Marijuana

Whilst the findings show that marijuana is safer than alcohol, this does not mean that it is perfectly safe,illegal-marijuana-deaths-compared and it is important that the government comes up with ways to ensure that it is being used safely and produced lawfully. Legalizing marijuana could assist with this as marijuana dispensaries and legal retailers of the cannabis drug could give users safe and regulated means to use the drug and Buy Medical Marijuana.

It is interesting to consider the red tape that still blocks people from using marijuana throughout some parts of America, given its low risk status, whilst alcohol and nicotine remain to be regulated but legal. Supporters of legalization hope that in the very near future there will be a universal understanding of the drug, to not only allow people to Buy Medical Marijuana, but that the criminalization associated with it will soon be a thing of the past.

$3 Million Boost For Marijuana Cannabis Drug Addiction

$3 million boost for Marijuana Cannabis drug addiction research as Obama supports legalisation

It has been announced that the National Institute of Health is pledging a huge $3 million to help find Marijuana Cannabis drug addictiontreatments for those who suffer from Marijuana Cannabis addiction.  It is estimated that over 4 million Americans are addicted to the substance and as president Obama helps fight with more states to legalise marijuana across the board, the assistance for those who want to get over their addiction shows a greater understanding from the government.

The proposal for the grant outlines the concern to the public’s health, suggesting that this is an issue that demands attention.  Marijuana is a popular drug and users rely on it for a number of reasons, from Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief to treating health problems and because of this, it is becoming increasingly important to find a way to safely provide marijuana to the public.

A better understanding to help those who are addicted

Marijuana Cannabis drug addictionThe $3 million proposal will assist three planned projects that are focussed on controlling marijuana dependency.  To date, no medication has been approved to assist with those who are addicted to the drug.  It was noted that marijuana is the drug that is most likely to be used amongst Americans, with the highest probability that this will be the substance of choice for abuse or dependency amongst those who illegally Buy Marijuana Online.

The president was recorded in March to have stated that he believed marijuana to be no more dangerous than alcohol and has admitted to having used it himself in his younger years.  Since Obama came to power, the Department of Justice has pledged to not enforce any laws in specific States, and to instead allow the states themselves to decide what action they wish to take when it comes to the handling of marijuana use and sale.  So far, 23 states have allowed marijuana for medicinal use, whilst 4 states, and the District of Columbia have fully legalised marijuana for recreational use as well as for medicinal use and Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief.  This latest move toward the acceptance of marijuana amongst US citizens has removed bans on applications for research into the substance.

Bad Vibes From the Media Considering The Government’s Reluctance to Allow the Public to Buy Marijuana OMarijuana Cannabis drug addictionnline

The proposal to plunge $3 million of taxpayer’s money into marijuana developments however hasn’t exactly proven a hit with the media though.  A waste of money, fraud and hypocrisy have been just some of accusations made by the media with flames of disgust being aimed directly at the federal government and it’s barres to prevent the public from being able to Buy Marijuana Online.  Even so, the government is striving to move forwards, insisting that as well as the benefits of marijuana, people need to accept that there are problems too and that it is possible to help tackle these problems with the right research and knowledge.

Effects Of Medical Cannabis On Cancer


icon  02 Jul, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Research Continues Into The Effects Of Medical Cannabis On Cancer

 

Whilst most of America debates the advantages and disadvantages of  Medical Cannabis use, more benefits of the substances are beginning to resurface, and none more so than it’s ability to actually reduce the likelihood ofa patient developing lung cancer.

Medical Cannabis

 

Buy Marijuana Online To Protect Against Lung Cancer

 

Whilst some may feel that marijuana use in treating lung cancer is counter productive, since there is so much evidence to suggest that smoking tobacco can cause cancer itself, more research is emerging that dispels these old beliefs.  It is becoming more and more apparent that being able to Buy Marijuana Online could help people reduce their risk of developing lung cancer.

 

Medical Cannabis Fights Multiple Myeloma

 

Medical CannabisNew research also shows that marijuana can be instrumental in fighting multiple myeloma.  This is a cancer that attacks the bone marrow and is found in one per cent of those who suffer from cancer around the world.  It also claims the lives of 2% of those who die from cancer each year.

Studies into the cancerous cells in bone marrow have been positive so far.  If the research company that is studying it at the moment, One World, is successful, it will be able to look into the effects of different strengths of CBD and THC to help treat the cancer and even help reduce it’s effects.

 

New Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Options

 

The research company, One World, is also looking at a new Medical Marijuana Delivery Service that would help doctors to safely prescribe marijuana for medicinal use.  A tablet form looks to be one of the best options to do this, as it allows doctors and medical professionals to control the dosage and frequency of the substance that is taken by the patient.

 

FDA Barricade To The Healing Benefits Of Marijuana

 

Whilst there are many pharmaceutical companies trying to investigate the effects that marijuana has on not only cancer but also many other life threatening illnesses.  A major barricade to research however is the federal government, who still has marijuana listed as a Schedule 1 drug.  Ironically, despite its healing abilities, it’s position on the dangerous drugs register, marijuana lies beside the likes of heroin and cocaine, with the feds claiming that it has no medical benefit.  For this reason, it looks like many medical breakthroughs that have been made so far will never be able to be of use to the general public.

 

Whilst there is still some way to go, almost half the states of America have now legalized marijuana for Medical Cannabisat least medicinal use, and it can be used by those suffering from certain medical conditions in these states, providing that they have the relevant paperwork.  2 states have even gone as far as completely legalizing marijuana for recreational use, with added benefits such as reduced drug related crimes and better economy for these states.  There is light at the end of the tunnel however, as many states that still impose criminal labels on those who Buy Marijuana Online are actually considering new bills that would lift current bans if they are fully approved.

5 Benefits for Cancer Patients Using Medical Cannabis


icon  26 Jun, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

5 Benefits for Cancer Patients Considering Using Medical Cannabis

Whilst lawmakers and scientists struggle to agree on the validity of any claims that Medical Cannabis is a miracle cure for cancer, it is evident that those who are already undergoing medical treatment for cancer can benefit from taking the substance. Chemotherapy is a long and traumatic procedure for anyone to have to go through, and the side effects that this can bring are debilitating.

Having Access to Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Can Help Ease Nausea

Chemotherapy can cause nausea and vomiting in patients but using marijuana during chemo treatment can ease this symptom. The FDA have even accepted that marijuana can assist in easing nausea and vomiting and have approved a tablet form of THC that can be used by patients. This has been available through Medical Marijuana Delivery Services since 1985.

Medical Cannabis

Medicinal Marijuana Can Control Mental Health Problems

Chemotherapy treatments can often cause depression as one of its many side effects. Marijuana is known for its ability to lift the user’s mood, and studies show that it is effective in alleviating the symptoms of anxiety and depression in users.

Marijuana can Help Sufferers Get More Sleep

There are many issues that cancer patients can suffer from when it comes to sleeping, including struggling to fall asleep, stay asleep and feeling as though they have not had a good night’s sleep even if they do manage to fall asleep. The THC in marijuana can improve the user’s ability to sleep and can be used by those undergoing chemotherapy treatments who are struggling to sleep as a result.

Marijuana is Great for Pain Relief

Cancer and chemotherapy can produce high levels of pain for a patient, and sufferers often find that prescribed medications to help give pain relief do little to help with the pain without causing further side effects. Marijuana can help block the pain receptors in the body, so if cancer sufferers use the substance, they can find that they receive the pain relief that they need.

Buy Medical Marijuana to Help Fight Cancer

Whilst the jury is still out on this one, there have been plenty of scientific studies that show that weed is effective in attacking cancerous cells and for some forms of cancer it would appear that marijuana can slow, reverse and even prevent cancerous cells from forming. Even if a patient finds that they do have cancer before they’ve even ever tried toBuy Medical Marijuana for any reason, they can find that using the substance can limit the disease and stop it from spreading.

These are just 5 of the many benefits that using marijuana can offer to those suffering from cancer. To limit, control, treat and even prevent cancer in patients, the FDA and the scientists should continue to research the drug to discover more ways that it may be used to help those who are living with the disease.

Louisiana Close to Seeing Medical Marijuana Legalized

Louisiana Close to Seeing Medical Marijuana Legalized

2015 has been a great year for supporters of medical marijuana legalization in the state of Louisiana. So far, a new bill that proposes access to medicinal marijuana for all those who need it has made it’s way a long way through the ranks of local governmental approval. Now, the fate of this new legislation lies in the hands of Governor bobby Jindal. If the bill is passed, it would make Louisiana the 24th state in America to allow it’s citizens to legally access the substance.

The next step of the approval process looks positive for citizens of Louisiana. Jindal has already outwardly confirmed that he is in support of legalizing marijuana for the good health of those who would benefit from it. He has even gone so far as to admit that he was already had a chance to look at the bill and that if he had the chance to approve it, he would.

Medical Marijuana

How Would Louisiana’s Cannabis Dispensary System Work?

The bill would only allow medical marijuana in a form that it could not be smoked in. That means that it would need to be made into a pill or oils. There would then be 10 Cannabis Dispensaries at various locations around Louisiana where citizens could Buy Medical Marijuana. There would only be one authorized area for growing the marijuana for this purpose.

It is likely that the Louisiana State University is going to be the location that would have the highest chance of obtaining the license to cultivate the drug, along with the Southern University. If neither of these locations are interested in the project, then other companies would be able to enter a bidding process to try to find a suitable location.

Who Could Access Marijuana in the State?

There would only be a number of conditions covered under the new bill. These include Glaucoma, quadriplegia and those undergoing treatment for cancer. This would not remain the case forever though, as the University of Louisiana would be given the power to give their own recommendations for further conditions or diseases such as epilepsy, that could potentially be added to the list.

10 Marijuana Dispensaries Could be Chosen Where Citizens Could Buy Medical Marijuana

The locations for the 10 authorized cannabis dispensaries around the state would be existing pharmacies. Each pharmacy would be subjected to a review and the staff would need additional training and medicinal marijuana would be given under prescription to those patients who have been prescribed the drug by their doctor. All sales of the substance would be tracked to protect the safe distribution of the drug and to ensure that the only people who access the drug would be those authorised to Buy Medical Marijuana.

The bill would expire after 5 years, which would force Louisiana to assess the system and how successfully it performs. This would determine whether the state chooses to maintain the legislation or to ban the drug again.

Marijuana Delivery for Veterans Could Help PTSD


icon  30 May, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

How The Feds Are Learning That Marijuana Delivery for Veterans Could Help PTSD

Whilst 23 states and counting have locally legalized the use of marijuana delivery services to some extent, with more following suit, it seems strange that the federal government are still having a hard time believing that there is any truth behind research about medicinal marijuana. Whilst studies have shown that marijuana has helped veterans who are suffering from PTSD, it has not been enough for the federal government to accept the truth, until now. Finally, the feds have approved a study, and if the results prove to be positive, this could see a move towards Marijuana Delivery being approved as a viable treatment for the strains of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Colorado Backs PTSD Study In Step Towards Vets Being Allowed To Buy Medical Marijuana

Recently, members of congress actually voted out the possibility of veterans discussing the possibility of being offered a Medical Marijuana Delivery Service to help them with their PTSD, but hopes are high now that the new study that has been commissioned by the government will change the minds of those who previously voted ‘no’.The study has been backed by the state of Colorado, who is one of the only states in America to have fully legalized marijuana for recreational use. Colorado raised the $2million to get the study off the ground.

In addition to the years it has taken to reach this breakthrough, the process has not been without its setbacks. The research team have already been challenged by congress about the reliability of the samples when they Buy Medical Marijuana that they will be testing. The team admitted that the quality of the cannabis that they had planned on using for the study couldn’t be determined. Instead, the study has had to go on hold whilst a special order of cannabis is grown in a controlled environment by the University of Mississippi.

Step Towards Legalization of A PTSD Medical Marijuana Delivery Service

The study,however, is now almost ready. There will be 76 subjects, all veterans suffering from PTSD, who, over 6 weeks will be given 4 different varieties of cannabis, each with varying levels of THC and cannabinoids to see which elements of the substance work the most effectively with PTSD.

Whilst veterans are the subjects of this study for now, there is nothing to say that if successful, the scope for treating PTSD would not be extended to the wider population.

It is not likely that the federal government will change their mind completely on their stance when it comes to marijuana, but hopefully, this study will be another step in the right direction in breaking down the defences that the feds have built up, blocking invaluable research into marijuana and its many benefits.

icon  28 May, 2015  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Legislation Points Louisiana in the Right Direction for Legalizing a Marijuana Delivery Service

Whilst Louisiana has been known to have overly strict policies on marijuana related offenses, new laws that are being taken into consideration would drastically reduce the effect of the penalties imposed on marijuana related arrests. New legislation was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee in Louisiana just last week, which focuses on re-evaluating the current laws in the state that are inflicted on those offenders who have offended in the past. The next step for the bill is to go to the full senate for consideration. Whilst citizens would still not be able to use a Marijuana Delivery Service legally, it is possible that they could experience lesser penalties.

Marijuana delivery

Lower Sentences for Those Who Order Medical Marijuana Online

It was only last year that a bill that had been proposed by Senator J.P. Morrell that had similarities to the current proposition. That bill didn’t get too far, so this most recent approval is certainly a step in the right direction. It’s hoped that this sudden change in attitude towards such bills is due to the shift in opinion of law enforcement groups who so far are not interjecting with the approval of the bill.

This bill, if it goes all the way to being fully approved, will mean that there will be some significant changes to the way that minor pot offenses are handled. One-time offenders would no longer face prosecution and instead would be given a warning. So long as they didn’t commit another minor offense for just 2 years, they would have the offense removed from their criminal record.

8 Years Max for Those Who Order Marijuana Online

Even those who have offended in the past would see more relaxed punishments. Previous offenders may still face jail time, however the time that they are expected to be incarcerated for would be much less than they would at present. For example, at the moment, a person who was on their third offense could expect to get up to 20 years in jail. In addition to this, up to $5000 in fines could be imposed too. This is quite excessive and a strain on the prison system. The new bill, HB149 would see the maximum jail term for repeat offenders reduced to just 8 years at the most.

Whilst the new bill does not promise complete relaxation in the laws regarding marijuana, the approval of the bill would see Louisiana begin to leave behind it’s negative and old fashioned outlook on marijuana. Non-violent offenders would spend less time in prison, giving a better criminal system where those who do commit violent offenses could be pursued without worrying about these minor offenders. Whilst it may not be advisable to Order Marijuana Online, the penalties if caught would be much less.

Many believe that the state’s lack of compassion and understanding of the benefits of marijuana are detrimental to it’s citizens and hope that this bill may bring a change in feeling towards the substance, paving the way for legalization to orderMedical Marijuana Onlineand maybe one day, full legalization across the state.

Bob Marley’s Important Argument For Medical Marijuana

Bob Marley’s Important Argument For Medical Marijuana

One of the world’s most iconic musicians, and leading advocate for medical marijuana legalization would have been 70 years old this past February. Bob Marley, who was well known for composing and singing numerous memorable hits in the reggae style was remembered earlier this year to mark the occasion. In his home country of Jamaica, citizens celebrated by holding reggae jam sessions and his family commissioned a video in his name too to remember his ideals for making the world a better place.

Medical Marijuana

Herbs From Nature, The Planet’s Natural Medical Dispensary

One of the most memorable traits of Marley was how he publicly spoke out about Medical Marijuana and how much he believed in its many healing benefits. Bob Marley fiercely believed that there are spiritual, healing and meditational benefits to using the pant and defiantly opposed those who would try to use marijuana to incite fear and negativity amongst the public for political gain.

Bob’s Argument For The Legalization Of The Cannabis Drug

Marley would refer the Cannabis Drug as an herb and as an herb is a plant, he argued that herbs are good for everything and that something that is naturally occurring can’t possibly be as bad as politicians tried to make out. He made the point that politicians should have the public’s best interest and health as their highest priority, and by blocking the use of marijuana, even those who safely purchase it from a Medical Dispensary, this gives a very different message about their motives.

Whilst some may believe that Bob Marley’s message was simply to spread love and peace by getting high, his son believes differently. Ziggy Marley says that his father was a revolutionary. He explains that Bob was searching for social justice and acceptance. He wanted to encourage people to stand up for everything that they believed in, not just using marijuana. People should be entitled to basic human rights, and this was what Bob supported most of all. His message is just as relevant today as it was all those years ago.

A Chance For A Global Marijuana Delivery Service

Now, it is Bob Marley’s family who is working hard on his behalf to continue his efforts with marijuana legalization. They joined with a private company in 2014 to create a global Marijuana Delivery Service, using Marley as the mascot. The move, whilst intended to help everyone around the world to have access to marijuana if they require it, has also helped reawaken the memory of Marley for his family. His daughter remembers how her father used to feel that his mind opened whenever he used the drug, allowing his creativity to flow. He considered marijuana to be a gift.

Medical Cannabis Use For Kids

How Science Is Strengthening The Case For Medical Cannabis Use For Kids

Whilst it has been the argument of those who oppose the use of medicinal marijuana that children could be put in danger, new evidence suggests that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Studies show that the use of Medical Cannabis could actually help treat some illnesses for sick children.

 

How Can The Cannabis Drug Help Sick Children?

Two particularly life altering conditions, Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, are childhood epilepsy forms , which although rare still affects thousands of children across America. These illnesses can cause the sufferer to have hundreds of seizures a day, often with dangerous levels of severity. To date, all prescribed medications for the condition have been inadequate in treating the illness. Allowing parents to Buy Medical Marijuana Online however may be the answer.

Thankfully however, it would seem that the FDA are opening their minds to a new kind of treatment for sufferers of these conditions as they have approved a clinical trial for a Medical Cannabis based drug. Epidiolex is a new drug that is uses one of the 85 cannabinoids that are found in marijuana, namely cannabidiol or CBD, which is the drug’s main active ingredient. The FDA approved the trials last year and results so far have been positive. 54% of the patients in the trial had reported that they had had far fewer seizures after just 12 weeks of usage, whilst a further 9% actually said that their seizures had stopped altogether. The success of this study has left the path open for the second stage of the trials, which involves placebo-based methods of testing.

Strengthening The Case For Allowing People ToBuy Medical Marijuana Online

As well as the studies for Epidiolex, research in laboratories is quickly evolving in an effort to unlock the science behind CBD. THC is another of the various cannaboids of weed and has also been used in medicines although, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. One of the industries greatest breakthroughs as a result of research and discovery is the way in which cannaboids are perceived. These days, people are beginning to recognise that cannabinoids are separate entities and that each one has different properties that can be harnessed for different benefits.

Research has now clarified that the cannabidiol cannabinoid is the sole ingredient of cannabis that can provide the best relief for seizure sufferers. The great news is that because this is known, with careful cultivation, special strains of the cannabis drug can be grown to produce higher quantities of CBD, meaning a better effectiveness of the cannabinoid a greater yield. Careful cultivation can mean better safety and piece of mind for those who Buy Medical Marijuana Online

Facts You Didn’t Know About The Cannabis Drug

10 Facts You Didn’t Know About The Cannabis Drug

With so many US states legalizing cannabis in one form or another, it’s becoming much more socially acceptable to talk about the cannabis drug. If you find yourself discussing marijuana frequently with your friends and colleagues, then have a look at these uncommonly known facts about marijuana, so you have something interesting to chat about, next time the subject arises.

Cannabis Drug

1. Cannabis Has Been in Space

A weather balloon holding 95 seeds, a cloned plant and a joint were sent 19 miles up into the air, and there are even stories of NASA spacemen throwing cannabis seeds out into space during a mission.

2. Word Up!

There are estimated to be around 2000 different words that can be used instead of the word ‘cannabis’. Ganja, marijuana, weed and pot are just a handful.

3. Decriminalizing Marijuana Delivery Doesn’t Mean No Arrests

Although marijuana has been decriminalized in many states, there are still many arrests made for cannabis related crimes, with an estimated arrest every 42 seconds. It would appear that despite all the legislation that has been passed, little has actually changed when it comes to the police’s view on the drug.

4. Medical Marijuana No New Invention

It’s quite surprising to know that marijuana has actually been in use since around 2737 BC, with the Emperor of China, Shennong recommending marijuana use to manage a variety of ailments.

5. Modern Medical Marijuana

In 2003, Canada became the first modern country to legalize medical cannabis, with cannabis dispensaries offering the drug to patients with qualifying health complaints.

6. US Cannabis Dispensaries Not New Either

Until 1942, American cannabis dispensaries offered the drug to treat conditions such as rheumatism, nausea and labor pains.

7. Probability of Overdose Very Low

1500 pounds of weed would need to be consumed within just a quarter of an hour to actually overdose on the drug, making it completely safe and impossible to create any fatalities from it’s consumption alone.

8. Even Presidents Have Had a Toke

Rather ironically, presidents have actually admitted or implied that they have used pot for themselves in the past. George W. Bush commented that he wouldn’t answer the questions about cannabis, because he didn’t want youngsters making the mistakes that he did. Obama, has openly admitted that he used cannabis recreationally throughout his youth too.

9. Cannabis Smoothies, Anyone?

In India, a yogurt and cannabis blend of smoothie is sold. Whilst it is reported to taste quite awful, it has some wonderful effects.

10 Beer Hops and Marijuana

Did you know that hops that make beer and cannabis come from the same plant family and people have even tried making marijuana beer due to the similarities with the two plants.

Cannabis Drug Advert Set for Screens

Cannabis Drug Advert Set for Screens

In the month of May, decision-making panels in Texas have been assessing the viability of a new bill that has been proposed to decriminalize marijuana, giving more lenient treatment to those in possession of the drug. To go hand in hand with this, an advert is due to appear on the television sets of thousands of Texans across the state, telling residents just what decriminalization of marijuana would mean for Texas. A marijuana support group who are broadcasting the clip on major channels until the decision is made on bill HB 507 backs the advert. This bill proposes that those carrying less than one ounce of the substance will receive a reduced penalty. Currently, if you are caught in possession of less than two ounces of the cannabis drug, you could face up to a $2000 fine and a jail term of up to 6 months.

Cannabis Drug

New Rules for Recreational Use and Not Just Medical Marijuana

To date, Texas has the second highest arrests for marijuana related crimes, and according to statistics, white people are half as likely to be arrested for possession of cannabis as black people are. The proposed bill was approved last week by the Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence and was initially put forward by state representative Joe Moody. The new bill would apply to those who use Medical Marijuana as well as those who use it for recreational use only.

Russell Jones, who was once a police officer for the State of Texas and a detective for narcotics, narrates the advert, comparing the dangers of alcohol to those of marijuana. This is a common comparison that is drawn when discussing the prospect of legalizing marijuana, which is an interesting debate, as it is a well-known fact that alcohol is attributed to many more violent crimes and accidents than cannabis ever has.

In his narrative, Jones explains “I know of no instance in my entire career where someone was acting out under the influence of marijuana.” He goes on to say that “People under the influence of alcohol are much more problematic. Law enforcement officials have more important things to do with their time than arrest people for marijuana possession.”

Of the 11 bills concerning marijuana that Texas officials have been considering, HB 507 is the one that has made it past the most hurdles so far. Supporters of the legalization of the cannabis drug are excited that Texas lawmakers are finally taking marijuana more seriously and having more of an open mind when it comes to the drug.

New Bill Could Legalize Pot Delivery for Texans

With the outlook on the bill looks promising so far, there is more hope for the bill, as it was only last week that another bill was approved, that would permit the sale and distribution for pot delivery across the state. The bill was approved by a bipartisan House committee, which, if that bill goes further, could mean Texas would be a step towards being the fifth state to allow the recreational use of cannabis.

Promising Cannabis News For Pennsylvania

Promising Cannabis News For Pennsylvania

There has been some great Cannabis news in Pennsylvania this week for the supporters of legalizing marijuana for medicinal use. Senator Mike Folmer submitted Bill 3, which calls to legalize the use of marijuana in the state for medicinal uses. The state senate passed the bill, which would mean legal access to medicinal marijuana services for many citizens who suffer from a multitude of severe health problems. This is an attractive prospect to many who feel that this naturally occurring medication has a bad public image that it doesn’t deserve.

Cannabis news

Enabling Patients to Use A Medical Marijuana Delivery Service

The proposed bill would ultimately ensure that the use of cannabis for medical use is safely and fully regulated. Not everyone would be able to access a medical marijuana delivery service, but instead, the legal use of the drug would be restricted to those who have a valid medical condition that is on the list of approved conditions for use of the drug. The bill would also ensure that the State Board of Medical Cannabis Licensing under the Department of State would be able to oversee the safe use of the drug and appropriately license it.

When the bill was passed on April 21st, the panel voted it in unanimously. It was amended slightly however, with detailed rules that medical cards permitting the use of the drug should be kept up to date to the minute. Those businesses licensed to grow, process and sell the drug for medicinal purposes should also be tracked carefully to ensure that no additional marijuana products could be illegally released from these outlets. Whilst no edible cannabis may be produced, it would be possible for medical cardholders to mix their cannabis into their food or to turn the cannabis into an inhalable steam to make using the drug more manageable for the individual. In addition, the list of allowed medical conditions was amended to add AIDs, HIV and the painful eye condition, glaucoma.

Medical Marijuana Benefits Finally Being Recognized

Senator Folmer expressed his relief following the acceptance of the bill by his colleagues. “This bill has had many individuals working hard to help the broadest group of people we possibly can without further delay,” said Folmer. He was happy that the amendments have been made in favour of the use of the drug and that the list had been expanded to provide relief to a wider group of patients.

The use of marijuana has been legalized, decriminalized or is partially allowed for medicinal use across just under half the number of States in America. Bill 3, which has been brought forward a little more is a step in the right direction to give Pennsylvanians the chance to use medicinal marijuana to treat their various health problems. Finally, it looks as though America is waking up and realising the many medical marijuana benefits that can be provided by the drug.

Medical Marijuana Should be Legalized


icon  11 May, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

77 year old a-list actor Morgan Freeman has expressed his desire to see cannabis legalized ‘across the board’. The actor doesn’t hide the fact that he uses medical marijuana for his own use and has done for a good few years.

Recent moves by some states to partially or fully legalize marijuana have been praised by Freeman who says that he uses the drug for his own personal pain control and acknowledged that he feels that it has many other uses.

Marijuana is beginning to have more understanding in not only the public eye, but also in the medical world too. It’s also a well established fact that alcohol is far more dangerous than marijuana, causing thousands of fatalities each year, whereas marijuana is not known to have ever caused a single fatality.

 

Medical Marijuana Should be Legalized

Not Just Medical Marijuana Benefits Says Freeman

Morgan Freeman suffers from the pain-inducing medical condition, fibromyalgia. There is no known cure for this health ailment, and it causes pain and joint swelling amongst several other symptoms for sufferers, many of whom are prescribed harsh pain medications that can cause further side-effects even though it deals with the pain. Fibromyalgia sufferers like Freeman however can take medicinal Marijuana Pain Relief without the harsh side effects of extreme pain medication.

Even though he has been prescribed many medications, Morgan Freeman claims that Medical Marijuana is the only thing that has ever helped ease the symptoms of his fibromyalgia. He suffers the most pain in his arm and this is Morgan Freeman’s main reasoning behind using the drug. He strongly supports those who believe in legalizing cannabis, although he does not believe it should end at using the drug forthe medical marijuana benefits only. There are many other benefits of marijuana, including the fact that it is safer to use than it’s legal recreational alternative, alcohol.

Marijuana Pain Relief a Clear and Possible Alternative

Marijuana has proven itself in trials on children who have seizure, and studies show that the drug can actually minimise the severity of seizures so that the children do not need to suffer and as such can enjoy being children and live a happier life. The drug has also been successful on multiple occasions in relieving previously untreatable pain in other conditions, showing that Marijuana Pain Relief may be the way forward.

Even though Marijuana has been legalized for medicinal use in California for around 19 years now, industry regulations for it’s safe use have been barred by some governmental groups who won’t back down on their statements that there are no such thing as medical marijuana benefits as such, the federal government still keeps marijuana on the list of schedule 1 dangerous drugs. Whilst Californians can access medical marijuana in Los Angeles for example, elsewhere in America, there are still states that have severe legal implications for those who use the drug for any purpose and we are the best online store dealing in Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara.

New Medical Marijuana Bill Means Full Legalization for Texas


icon  10 May, 2015  /  icon  4        Author: Support Pot Valet

New Marijuana Bill Means Full Legalization for Texas and Not Just For Medical Marijuana

On Wednesday, new legislation was approved that means a small victory for the marijuana users of Texas. Members of the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee have allowed new laws that will allow Texans to use not only Medical Marijuana, but to access a marijuana delivery service for recreational purposes too.

The 7-person panel voted 5 to 2 in favor of the bill, which would mean that Texas could become the fifth state in America to legalize cannabis for the public’s recreational use. It’s a little early to start toking quite yet though as the bill has several more crossroads to clear and it is unlikely for the bill to get any further this year. It is still a step in the right direction, with officials showing support for marijuana, which is still classed by the federal government as a dangerous schedule 1 drug.

medical marijuana

Great Cannabis News For Marijuana Supporters

Only 2 days before, this panel had voted on the decriminalization of marijuana, which again was a successful 4 to 2 vote on that bill. This first victory was the first time that a bill to legalize marijuana has ever been approved at this stage, so for two to be approved is certainly good news for cannabis supporters.

The current law means that those caught in possession of marijuana face jail time, which many believe is unfair, unnecessary and a waste of money for the taxpayer. New laws aim to reduce the numbers of people incarcerated for marijuana possession across Texas. Instead, law enforcement will have the power to give citations to individuals caught in possession of marijuana. There are other benefits for decriminalizing marijuana, with obvious reasons being the reduced rates of drug related crimes, an economy boost and a regulated system to make marijuana safer for those who do use it for recreational or medicinal purposes.

One particular member of the committee voting for the bill to legalize marijuana for recreational use gave his reason as “I don’t believe that when God made marijuana he made a mistake that government needs to fix.” David Simpson, a republican has conservative views and gave his support for the bill gladly.

Hopes For A Legal Marijuana Delivery Service To Be Available for All

The bill wont legalize the recreational use of marijuana completely however. Maintaining responsibility, the committee in making their final decisions decided to make a few amendments to the bill before voting. Unless they have parental supervision, minors will not be able to use cannabis, so this will still remain legal. Changing this section of the bill resulted in another yes vote from the panel.

The next group of voters to receive the bill will be the State House Floor Calendar committee, so marijuana users who are still waiting for a legal marijuana delivery service will no doubt be waiting with baited breath to hear the outcome of their decision.

Marijuana Laws Removing the Cannabis Dispensary


icon  27 Apr, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

On April 24th, Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill to reform the rules for the use of marijuana, and specifically the cannabis dispensary in a move that is sure to improve the way in which marijuana is regulated across the state.  The proposed bill featured seven aspects that the governor ruled out as he signed the bill, although the majority was kept as it had been originally proposed.

The governor’s decision to sign the bill was not made lightly, however he acknowledged that legalization is the way forward in order to create a more regulated system that is safer for the public and users of the drug, especially those who currently rely on visiting marijuana dispensaries for their health problems.

cannabis dispensary

What Does the Bill Mean For the Cannabis Dispensary?

Rather than using the regular marijuana dispensaries, the bill will mean that from next summer, the sale of medical marijuana will be facilitated via the recreational pot stores that began to be used over the past year.   Some changes will need to be made by the stores if they wish to sell medicinal marijuana, such as stocking certain products and ensuring that staff members are sufficiently trained to be able to advise and sell marijuana for medicinal purposes.

How Can Patients Use Recreational Stores Now Instead of A Marijuana Dispensary?

By joining a patient registry, those who have a doctor’s recommendation to use marijuana to access a marijuana dispensary will be able to purchase more marijuana than they would be able to for recreational use, whilst not needing to pay tax on the product either.  It is hoped that changing the law for both recreational and medicinal uses of marijuana will ensure that the current medical system will finally be regulated better than cannabis dispensaries are at present, bringing it more in line with the current and so far successful implementation of laws for recreational use.

The new bill states that it is up to the medical practitioner as to how much and in what dose marijuana is prescribed to the patient.  Whilst this could mean that patients can now have access to as much treatment as may be necessary for their condition or illness, it would have an alternative consequence, as doctor’s are still regulated by federal laws as well as state laws, and prescribing a substance that is not legal across the country could lead to a doctor losing their license to practice medicine.  To overcome this issue, the governor allowed for small cultivation of the drug by patients for their own use, rather than having crops killed when they are discovered, as was part of the proposed bill.

What Was Omitted From The New Cannabis Dispensary Bill?

Amongst the parts of the bill that the governor decided to rule out of the final bill that he signed was removing the ability for medical centers to prevent their staff from advising for cannabis dispensaries to be used.  It was argued that if all medical professionals are allowed to advise without regulation about the usage of marijuana, then this could lead to the overuse and unnecessary use of the substance, and that the theory behind the suggestion wasn’t exactly well researched at the time of proposition.

Obama backs the use of the Cannabis Drug


icon  22 Apr, 2015  /  icon  9        Author: Support Pot Valet

4/20 is the unofficial celebration day for the cannabis collective to unite and hold protests to legalize marijuana across the globe.  The evening before, on April 19th 2015, President Obama appeared on a report for CNN news claiming to back the use of medicinal marijuana in support of the controlled usage of it rather than criminalizing all who use the cannabis drug.

cannabis drug

Support for the Cannabis Collective

Whilst Obama didn’t quite state that he was behind the complete legalization of the drug, he seemed to be very supportive of backing the bill to legalize it for its medicinal use.

Obama believes that the science behind medicinal marijuana is too strong to ignore and that if patients are professionally and carefully prescribed the use of medicinal marijuana to help with their health issues, then this could be a viable option for at least partially legalizing the cannabis drug.  He said that he believes strongly that it is time that the public and officials stopped looking at marijuana from a criminal perspective, and looked instead at how marijuana could benefit the health and lifestyle of those who live with health problems that marijuana could help to treat.

Although he is a little shy about the subject, this is not the first time that the president has addressed his views on the use of marijuana.  In his youth, Obama has claimed to have used marijuana, and has admitted that he does not believe that it is any more dangerous than alcohol.

Policy Similar to That for Tobacco Could be Used For the Cannabis Drug

Just as guidelines for the safe and responsible use of tobacco, with warnings and public service announcements have helped spread the message of the dangers of the prolonged use of tobacco, Obama suggested that a similar tactic could be used for allowing members of the public to use marijuana safely.  Presently, if someone has an addiction to tobacco and cigarettes, then the government has options for them to help fight the addiction and offer help and support.  Rather than looking at the overuse of the cannabis drug as a criminal matter, offering help and support if it is required to the cannabis collective could be a better option.

The Stance on the Cannabis Drug in America

At present, Colorado has seen a huge financial benefit from the legalization of cannabis, with crime statistics being unaffected, and the taxes coming into the state due to legal cannabis drug sales giving a real boost to the economy.  The District of Columbia, Oregon and the State of Washington have also seen the legalization of the recreational use of the cannabis drug with no adverse problems.

Objection to the Use of the Cannabis Drug Still a Problem

Despite the present success of legalization across parts of America, and the statistics that the use of the drug amongst the cannabis collective is much less deadly than the abuse of alcohol, just this past week, a Californian judge has ruled not to take it off the list of federally recognized dangerous drugs.

People with arthritis can buy marijuana online


icon  20 Apr, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

Arthritis is among those  that people try to cure or at least relieve with marijuana. And given the fact that it affects namely the bones and joints, the option to buy marijuana online seems adequate and applicable.

buy marijuana online

Why bother visiting a dispensary when you can order marijuana online?

It’s like this – this disease is already too hard to handle let alone going out and visiting a dispensary just to buy what’s necessary to relieve the pain. Many scientific studies have proven and confirmed the pain-relieving effects that cannabis has. The case with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis is no different.

These are the two most common diseases that affect the musculoskeletal system. They consist in bone deformations that cause quite unpleasant pain to the patients and distort their everyday activities. Simple things like shopping become a rather obnoxious activity and patients with arthritis prefer to limit all sort of movement.

Cannabis is an effective and reliable treatment so expansion of the market is no surprise for anyone: welcome the marijuana online business.

The wave of legalization is literally flooding the world – US States as well as developing countries are discussing the liberalization of either medical marijuana or cannabinoid-based medications. But for the patients the decision is simple – they’ll do whatever is necessary to relieve their pain. In this particular case authorities must consider the financial influx from taxes from dispensaries and also from buying marijuana online. It’s harsh to admit that for some people the health and life of others is measured in bills and coins.

The risk of arthritis is higher for obese people, yet 30% risk while maintaining a healthy weight is just too much.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 19 million Americans “report limitations because of arthritis”. This number sounds more than disturbing – 19 million only in the USA is just too many people suffering this awful pain. That’s why it’s a bit surprising when you think about marijuana online.

To order marijuana online may sound ridiculous to some just because of the fact that arthritis is closely related to unhealthy weight and sedentary lifestyle. Unfortunately the problem with the skeletal deformations and diseases is that they can’t be cured, just relieved. This briefly means that if it’s already too late to reason “To eat or not to eat that pizza?”, then getting rid of the pain is more than welcome.

To order marijuana online is not only easy but a reliable way to provide the necessary treatment.

We buy food online; we buy clothes and shoes online; why not buy marijuana online then? Once we escape from the social stereotypes of what’s “good” and “bad” for us and go for “what makes us feel better” , only then we can really affirm that health is a top priority for humanity.

Marijuana delivery – salvation for two hundred Delawareans


icon  15 Apr, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

Another major hit on the medical marijuana accessibility in Delaware – the opening of First State Compassion Center has been rescheduled for June. This is the second delay that disturbs the treatment of approximately two hundred patients and a reasonable solution might be the marijuana delivery.

Constant troubles for the sick Delawareans since the medical cannabis law was passed in 2011 but marijuana delivery may save the day.

It was first the Governor – Jack Markell who hampered the implementation of the new law under the threat of possible federal intervention. For four years patients were forced to seek alternative sources to relieve their condition. Quite more often than we’d like, these sources were not only illegal, but unreliable and hide many dangers.

Marijuana delivery

Marijuana delivery seems like a good choice since it was announced that Delaware’s first medical dispensary will open doors later than expected. The initially scheduled start was for April, but as a result of electrical issues and seed-growing related difficulties, this date has been changed. Now the 200 registered patients of the state will have to wait until June to purchase their first and legal, Delaware medical marijuana.

Marijuana delivery is not only quicker but also a safe way to provide the patients with treatment.

Since the beginning of the cannabis legalization wave, the number of registered patients in Delaware has tripled. Yet, these people don’t have the necessary access to relief their suffering. Marijuana delivery was a disputable option that raised many questions (mainly concerning regulation) but so far it turns out it works quite well for many patients in other states. While cross-state delivery is forbidden, Delawarean authorities might consider the fact of a temporary solution to the dispensary delay problem.

Many have expressed their concerns about a potential shortage of the medical cannabis. The governor’s spokesman affirmed that supply-related issues won’t occur. Unfortunately, after so many troubles that accompanied the Delawarean medical marijuana legalization, patients just can’t be patient anymore.

According to Health Officials, the current number of people in possess of medical cannabis ID cards is 200. At the same time about 170 more are waiting in line for their applications to be approved. Considering the state law regulations, allowing the cultivation of not more than 150 plants and a reserve of 1,500 ounces, the total number of people who’ll need weed will exceed the ability of supplying.

Despite the relentless efforts of medical cannabis communities, even a marijuana delivery service won’t fix the problems permanently and entirely. More efforts and even more devotion are needed from the authorities in order to meet the needs of patients whose last chance of treatment was delayed again.

Cannabis News: Marijuana for 2016 Election


icon  13 Apr, 2015  /  icon  11        Author: Support Pot Valet

Latest cannabis news shows that the politicians have been discussing marijuana policy. And the marijuana policy will most likely be addressed in the 2016 election, as it is a very hot topic. This means that whether it’s Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton or Scott Walker, marijuana policy will be up for debate. In other cannabis news, both the republicans and democrats have reasons to address marijuana cannabis issues.

Cannabis news: Republicans Talk Marijuana

Marijuana policy gives republicans a chance to distinguish themselves. It is an issue that they need to take a stand on. They have to speak about it. Cannabis is too popular for any politician to avoid. It also helps candidates to make a link with the younger and more liberal voters. While some republicans accept and openly address marijuana policy, some don’t. For some republicans they “just say no.”

Cannabis news: Democrats Talk Marijuana

Democrats find it far less difficult and seamless to talk marijuana policy. Again, like with the republicans, it helps in connecting to the younger audience, the younger voters. It also helps democrats to lead into a discussion about health and family. After all, most cannabis news tell us that cannabis drugs have several medical benefits. This topic also provides another lead in that benefits the democrats. It provides a lead in to criminal justice reform, economic disparities, discrimination and the job implications of marijuana arrests.

Why Cannabis News will Increase

Many states have come on board to legalize marijuana. This list includes states like Washington and Colorado. And they have already started gaining quite a few benefits. In Colorado, the governor’s budget office estimate they will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of recreational pot sales. In the first year alone Colorado earned $53 million in marijuana sales tax revenue. And, more recent reports state that Colorado has made $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales.

Scientists have learnt that medical marijuana benefits for treatment of various medical issues. And as more states legalize marijuana more research will be done to uncover new uses. Cannabis news talk about some illnesses that marijuana is used to treat, illnesses such as marijuana cancer treatment, marijuana for migraines, marijuana for glaucoma and many more. The benefits of marijuana are quite many. Scientists also say marijuana users are smarter and more open minded. It has also been said that marijuana is less toxic than alcohol and tobacco.

So not only will cannabis drugs help to raise tax incomes in each state, but it will also help persons who need the herb for treatment. Medical marijuana is used for a number of illnesses and diseases. Legalizing marijuana will mean a boost in business for medical marijuana delivery service suppliers and a host of medical advantages that many persons will benefit from.

Marijuana dispensary, Marijuana taken to the federal level as Bill awaits decision in House


icon  10 Apr, 2015  /  icon  18        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana has been the centre of attention recently. And, the federal government has gotten more involved. The positive thing about this effort is that it is bipartisan. It means that both sides are pushing for the law to be passed. This will improve the odds of the bill being passed. This may also affect how long it takes.

The bill is also very likely to be passed because of public opinion. Currently, polls say that 86 per cent of Americans are pro medical marijuana. This is a big advantage for the bill. This will open the doors for the marijuana dispensary businesses and other suppliers in the industry.

 marijuana dispensary

The Reason for Support for Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana benefits are quite a few. Aside from its recreational use, marijuana cannabis has a number of medical advantages. It is used for insomnia, pain relief, asthma, anxiety and many others. There is marijuana cancer treatment, marijuana multiple sclerosis, marijuana AIDs and marijuana HIV treatments. The marijuana dispensary and medical marijuana dispensary industry will increase when legalization is set at a federal level.  They will make it more convenient and accessible for persons who need medical marijuana to treat their illnesses or disease.

Marijuana move from Schedule I to II

Marijuana is currently under the Schedule I category under federal government. Under this category drugs are not recognized for having any medical benefit. However, clearly, this is not the case with cannabis drugs. It has a variety of medical benefits. And, as more research is conducted the current list of benefits may well increase. Being under Schedule II will mean that the medical qualities of marijuana will be officially recognized. Representative Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee and Don Young, R-Alaska, introduced the bill recently that proposes reclassifying marijuana to Schedule II.

The New Bill will Free up Medical Marijuana

Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 23 states. Moving marijuana to Schedule II at the federal level would then allow each state to set the law with regards to medical marijuana. The new bill will also allow a marijuana dispensary, for medical treatment, to use the traditional banking system. This bill will also allow doctors at the Department of Veterans Affairs to recommend medical marijuana to veterans. Cohen spoke fervently about this issue, he said, ” VA Doctors should not be muzzled,” he said. “The idea that veterans who go to war and see life squashed out can’t talk to doctors about marijuana is absurd. It’s crazy.”

The marijuana industry will turn around, but it may take some time. The marijuana dispensary and medical marijuana dispensary business will be opened up for persons to acquire marijuana for medical treatment. And political affiliates will come together to get marijuana mainstreamed.

Irish healthcare Firm Discusses Cannabis Collective for Multiple Sclerosis Patients


icon  08 Apr, 2015  /  icon  11        Author: Support Pot Valet

Like other countries worldwide marijuana cannabis is being legalized in many European Union countries. Unfortunately Ireland is lagging in this regard. Dr. James Linden, the managing director of a Dublin-based research firm called GreenLight Health has been examining the medical marijuana benefits and particularly as it relates to multiple sclerosis patients. 176 years ago Irish Doctor William Brooke O’Shaughnessy lead the initiative in researching the medical benefits of cannabis drugs. Now, Dr. Linden is reigniting this research to help thousands of patients who suffer from multiple sclerosis. A cannabis collective, a place that provides medical marijuana to those who don’t grow or have their own supply, will be a source for multiple sclerosis patients.

cannabis collective

Regulations against Pot in Ireland

Unfortunately, cannabis collective facilities are not yet readily available for patients in Ireland. Using marijuana in Ireland could mean a criminal record. Persons could also be required to pay a fine of 2,700 Euros and possible a prison sentence of up to 12 months. Other countries such as United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Austria and France have legalized marijuana cannabis for medical purposes. They have allowed cannabinoid type treatments to be used in their health system. On the other hand, in Ireland, legalization was to have been drafted in 2013 to allow for the selling of medical cannabis, however, it has not gone any further. According to Dr. Linden, it is a grey area on whether he would need a change in the law to produce cannabis medicine in Ireland. He can get a license to grow marijuana for research. However, a cannabis collective and selling it would make that grey area somewhat darker.

Cannabis Collective for Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Though research is continuing to uncover the how medical cannabis can help treat multiple sclerosis patients, according to Dr. Linden “cannabis gives relief from some of the symptoms of MS which are muscle plasticity which helps prevent inflammation and it helps the joints from stiffening.” Dr. Linden also says that cannabis could do more for MS patients, this can only be uncovered through more extensive research. The laws and regulations against marijuana would have to change to make way for this research to take place without any limiting restrictions.

As more research takes place, the benefits marijuana cannabis will more likely increase. Medically we are still only in the early stages of discovering the many medical marijuana benefits. Marijuana treatment is used for other illnesses and diseases such as diabetes, anti-aging, anxiety and there’s even marijuana cancer treatment. Medical dispensary, online medical dispensary and cannabis collective businesses will make cannabis medical treatment more easily available to patients. First the laws will have to make way for cannabis, but in time it will no longer pose a problem.

New Jersey's Christie Admin Scolded for Marijuana Delivery Criticism


icon  06 Apr, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

The New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, has made some comments about the medical marijuana program in the state that hasn’t been well received. This has displeased lawmakers so much so that they took their sentiments a step further. The lawmakers endorsed a resolution that said the Health Department, under Governor Christie’, put “arbitrary and unnecessary” limitations on the medical marijuana program. The marijuana trade is changing; marijuana delivery, other suppliers and stakeholders are looking forward to the legalization of Pot

Christie Calls it ‘Blood Money’

The lawmakers made that resolution, named the ACR224 a day after Christie’s comment. The Governor condemned the legalization of marijuana that would gain tax revenue; he called it ‘blood money.’ That may be Christie’s opinion, however, tax revenue from marijuana delivery and sales can be used for good in the state. Colorado legalized the cannabis drug for over a year now. The benefits have been quite good for the state. The state gained $53 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales. Also, the governor’s budget office estimate that Colorado will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of pot sales. $40 million to public school construction, $85 million on youth prevention and substance abuse treatment, $12.4 million on public health, $3 million on law enforcement and public safety and almost $2 million on industry oversight, according to money.cnn.com. This just shows how growing the marijuana industry can provide much needed benefits. More recent reports show that Colorado also generated $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales.

marijuana delivery

More importantly the medical marijuana benefits are plenty. Pot is used to relieve a wide number of illnesses and diseases. There’s marijuana cancer treatment, medical marijuana for migraines and a host of other medical marijuana benefits.

Marijuana Delivery Status in New Jersey

The resolution now says that there are regulations that were passed by the Department of Health that are in opposition to that legislature that was enacted in 2009, this was the Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act of 2009. This was also before Governor Christie took office. That legislature said that marijuana delivery by doctors who prescribed medical marijuana be part of a public database. It also stated that edible marijuana cannabis was prohibited and it could not be delivered to homes. Christie won’t have the chance to refute this resolution because it is not like other resolutions. It is a concurrent resolution. This means that if the Assembly and Senate pass it then the Department of Health will have to abide by what is stated.

With policies like this being pushed from the top marijuana legalization will happen in New Jersey, with any luck it will be sooner than later. Decriminalizing marijuana will only open up the industry to more possibilities.

Order Medical Marijuana Online in Ohio: Legalization A Possibility


icon  02 Apr, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

There’s an opinion shift happening in the marijuana industry. The times are changing. Marijuana cannabis is becoming more free and open in America, one state at a time. Experts are hoping Ohio will be the fifth state to join the list of states that have legalized cannabis drugs. This will cause a shift and result in big changes for the economy in Ohio. Order medical marijuana online, legally, may not be as far fetched as it in now. “We definitely support replacing the status quo. Marijuana prohibition is a colossal failure, and it needs to go,” says Chris Lindsey, a legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project. And this is exactly what is taking place.

Groups Working to Legalize Marijuana in Ohio

ResponsibleOhio is the group pushing for marijuana legalization on the November 2015 Ohio Ballot. The group projects Ohioans would annually buy more than $2.2 billion in legal marijuana by the year 2020, and when the market has stabilized.

order medical marijuana online

An investor group in Ohio has put up $20 million into developing 10 marijuana farms in Ohio. This will definitely help to grow the industry rapidly, and with new advances that allow users to order medical marijuana online, the earnings from the industry could even exceed forecasts.

Making Order Medical Marijuana Online a Reality

306,000 signatures are needed by July to make the requirement for the November 2015 ballot. Supporters and investor groups are working to get those signatures in time. Getting these signatures is very likely. In 2014, the Quinnipiac University reported that 51% of Ohioans supported a law that would allow adults to have limited amounts of cannabis for personal, whether recreational or medical, use. The law will mean that adults over 21 can use Pot, minors will have access to medial marijuana with parental consent and there would be a few commercial stimulations to marijuana growth.

On the political side, some experts say this may not be the best time to get a decision on legalizing marijuana because it is an off-off-year electorate. But campaign manager Ian James says it is all about appealing to the voters. According to James said: “when you talk with older voters and you talk about marijuana being able to treat Alzheimer’s, arthritis, assisting the children who suffer from dozens of seizures a day, rather than ravaging their bodies with opiates … old, young, black, white, men, women come to the point of saying, ‘I want to provide the compassionate care that this amendment provides. And I want to treat adults who are 21 and older as adults and allow them to purchase, possess and consume marijuana just the same way we do with alcohol.”

When Ohio legalizes marijuana, it will join states like Colorado and Washington that have already made the change and have astounding results. This and other industry innovativeness that allows users to order medical marijuana online continues to provide encouragement to other states and naysayers to do the same.

Buy Marijuana Online & Other Cannabis Benefits for Nevada 2016 Ballot


icon  31 Mar, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Marijuana Policy Project group has made strides in marijuana acceptance in the state of Nevada. The group collected more than enough signatures to put forward marijuana legalization for the 2016 ballot. This is the first state on the books for marijuana cannabis legislation ballot for next year, 2016. Mason Tvert, the communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project group made a comment on this development. Tvert said “Voters will have the opportunity to end marijuana prohibition next year and replace it with a policy that actually makes sense.”

The policy of choice is, of course, to legalize marijuana. Make cannabis open to patients who need it. Make cannabis open to persons who want to use it for recreational purposes. When persons are able to buy marijuana online and in stores freely, without fear of prosecution, that will be a big deal. Make the marijuana industry grow and add to the economy. This policy will change Nevada and other states that decide to legalize marijuana.

Work of the Marijuana Policy Project Group

The group has been working on pushing forth marijuana legalization. They have been working on the language on the ballot. To make sure it is comprehensive and correct. The group will also make sure that all marijuana issues are all addressed. Marijuana issues such as whether it is recreational or medical will be addressed on the ballot. They addressed whether it can be home grown or not by persons in the state. Making sure businesses can allow persons to buy marijuana online and access it by other means. The marijuana policy project group has worked on other state initiatives to make it possible and legal for persons to buy marijuana online and anywhere legally.

The marijuana policy project group has also worked on getting the marijuana industry free and opened up on other states. They were behind the successful legalization process in Colorado in 2012 as well as in Alaska in 2014.

Marijuana will Mean Big Things for the Future

When patients are able to buy marijuana online in Nevada, to use for diseases and ailments it will be a notable accomplishment. Cannabis news record several illnesses that marijuana is used to treat such as marijuana cancer treatment, marijuana for migraines, marijuana for glaucoma and many more. The medical marijuana benefits are quite many.

Tvert also had this to say, “law enforcement officials will be able to spend their time addressing more serious crimes, and adults will no longer be punished simply for using marijuana.” The marijuana policy project group will also be pursuing marijuana legalization ballots in other states. These states include Arizona, Maine and Massachusetts. Hopefully these states will come on board to legalize cannabis drugs. And, as Tvert says, start spending more of their time addressing serious crimes instead of making it hard persons from using the very potent, useful and beneficial cannabis.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Providing Solutions for Patients


icon  29 Mar, 2015  /  icon  8        Author: Support Pot Valet

It’s not a surprise that marijuana cannabis is being sought out to treat depression and bipolar. Even without medical evidence, marijuana users can tell you that having cannabis drugs get you in a very good mood. Just having marijuana makes you feel different and usually users feel better and more positive after having a dose of Pot. Aside from the recreational use there a large number of medical benefits that are derived from the herb. Many scientists and researchers have conducted a variety of experiments and tests to find what medical marijuana benefits exist. Now that new studies show the marijuana can help with depression and bipolar it just adds to the list of medical benefits. Findings like this will continue to boost and encourage the legalization and growth of the marijuana industry. Medical marijuana dispensary businesses will benefit greatly, and more so the patients who need the cannabis drugs to treat their ailments.

Studies Linking Marijuana to Depression and Bipolar Disorder

Imagine that you are suffering from depression, and you are able to go to a medical marijuana dispensary for treatment? Wouldn’t that be great? It certainly would for those who suffer from depression. According to patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com “neuroscientists from the University of Buffalo’s Research Institute on Addictions found that endocannabinoids — chemical compounds in the brain that activate the same receptors as THC, an active compound in marijuana — may be helpful in treating depression that results from chronic stress.” The source also reports that Pot may improve cognitive functioning in bipolar disorder “there was a general pattern of superior cognitive functioning in the group with a history of cannabis abuse. These patients performed better than their drug-free cohort on all significant measures, such as processing speed, attention, and working memory.” These studies give encouraging results to patients who probably need to find a medical marijuana dispensary to get their cannabis treatment.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary will Benefit from These Results

One study made a comparison between persons who had marijuana on a daily basis and those who had it less frequently or had never had it. The results showed that those who had marijuana at least once a week had a less depressed mood than the infrequent or non-users. They also tended to have a more positive outlook against their counterparts in the study. These studies will result in increased business for medical marijuana dispensary businesses and other suppliers in the industry.

“With the expansiveness that occurs with marijuana, the subject may begin to notice infinite possibilities to raise the quality of his/her life that would otherwise have remained hidden from normal, defensive consciousness. And feelings of health and happiness naturally lead to hope, which of itself can be curative.” – Joan Bello

Medical Marijuana Delivery Service for Patients with HIV/HCV


icon  27 Mar, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana has countless medical benefits that are still being discovered today. Persons use marijuana cannabis for pain relief, insomnia, diabetes and a number of other ailments. Marijuana treatment has also been linked to HIV and AIDS. Recent studies show that marijuana use can lower the risk of insulin resistance in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or Hepatitis C (HCV). As more and more research is conducted HIV/HCV patients and maybe other illnesses as well may find a viable treatment in marijuana. As more of these studies are done, the marijuana industry will grow. A medical marijuana delivery service will be very advantageous to these patients.

Lowering the Risk of Insulin Resistance

Reports from healio.com described findings from INSERM in France. According to the researchers “the results found were robust as they were confirmed in three sensitivity analyses, one of [these] also including patients with diabetes.” The team included M. Patrizia Carrieri, PhD and other team members. The information for the research was collected from 703 patients in France. All the patients had HIV and HCV. During the course of the study the patients did a few self-administered tests. Some of these tests included questionnaires. They asked the patients about consumption levels of items such as coffee and alcohol. And these questionnaires were done every 12 or 60 months. This helped researchers to keep track of the patient’s activity and monitor results.

medical marijuana delivery service

The results indicated “at the first available visit, 54.6% reported no cannabis use in the previous 4 weeks, where as 20.6% reported occasional use, 11.7% regular use and 13.1% daily use.” A medical marijuana delivery service would have been quite useful to the patients. The researchers measured insulin levels using a homeostasis model that would measure the insulin resistance also known as HOMA-IR. 46% of the patients had a HOMA-IR that was more than 2.77 or over. And 30% was over 3.8.

The researchers found that in a univariate analysis patients who used cannabis drugs had a smaller risk of insulin resistance. The study also showed that this was the case for persons who had several cups of coffee, if the patient was a female and if they had detectable HIV viral load.

Medical Marijuana Delivery Service for the Future

A medical marijuana delivery service will definitely help patients with HIV/HCV diseases in the future. It will make it more convenient for them to get cannabis drugs and treatment to keep their illness under control. Though this research on insulin resistance has provided much needed knowledge, there is more work to be done. The researchers also had this to say, “The benefits of these products for patients concerned by increased risk of insulin and diabetes need to be evaluated in clinical research and practice.”

Marijuana Delivery for Delaware State May be Years Away


icon  25 Mar, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

Delaware Governor Jack Markell has been supportive of quite a few controversial issues. However, when it comes to legalizing marijuana cannabis he has been uneasy. Markell agreed to legalize the cannabis drug for medical purposes in 2011. But now he is not supportive of the law. “It’s not going to happen while I’m governor,” says Markell in a recent WHYY’s First interview. The University of Delaware conducted a recent poll. The poll stated that 56 percent of Delaware citizens are in support of legalizing marijuana. However, this was not enough to persuade the Governor. This is not the best cannabis news. Quite a few states, laws and legislations are tending towards marijuana. Less of them are tending away from it. The marijuana industry, marijuana delivery and dispensaries are growing around the world. And hopefully Delaware will not be left behind.

States Benefit from Legalizing Marijuana

Delaware stands to benefit immensely from making marijuana delivery legal in the state. Other states that have done so have begun to reap the benefits. The governor’s budget office estimate that Colorado will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of recreational pot sales. In the first year Colorado earned $53 million in marijuana sales tax revenue. And, more recent and positive reports state that Colorado has generated $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales. This cannabis news is even more encouraging for the marijuana industry. However, Governor Markell doesn’t think it is enough. Markell believes more research and study needs to be conducted to uncover societal costs that may be hiding.

Also, not only will cannabis drugs help to raise tax revenues, but it will also help persons who need marijuana cannabis for treatment. Medical marijuana helps with pain relief, diabetes, migraines and so much more. Making marijuana delivery legal and convenient to patients in need will be very beneficial to Delawareans. Decriminalizing marijuana will only open up the industry to more encouraging and beneficial possibilities.

The Future of Marijuana for Delaware

Governor Markell has two years left in his term. As it is now, he will not be legalizing marijuana anytime soon. Maybe the next Governor will think differently. Maybe that person will be the one to open up marijuana in the State and start reaping benefits. Or, maybe more studies will be conducted during Markell’s tenure that will convince him to legalize marijuana in Delaware. Only time will tell the future of when marijuana delivery will be legal in Delaware.

While Markell awaits more research, hopefully existing studies will steer the Governor in the marijuana direction. Scientists have done tests that indicate marijuana can help to cure cancer. Some research also found a correlation between open-minded intelligent persons and marijuana usage. Marijuana clearly has a lot to offer. One can only hope Markell will realize that sooner rather than later.

Finance Sector Accepts Medical Marijuana Delivery


icon  23 Mar, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana cannabis has gained quite a bit of spotlight in recent times. Some states have legalized the drug for medical marijuana. While other states legalized for both medical and recreational use. The marijuana industry is in a period of growth. As the growth occurs the industry gets more profitable. As the industry becomes more profitable, it produces more money. In the past, the financial industry had hesitated to accept medical marijuana delivery businesses, dispensaries and others in the industry. However, things have changed in recent times. As states like Colorado and Washington have legalized Pot, more laws and regulations are being made to accommodate the industry. Banks are now able to keep accounts for marijuana businesses without any fear of prosecution.

Financial Sector Opened up to Medical Marijuana Delivery Businesses

The legal marijuana suppliers, sellers, dispensaries and the like are able to freely use banking services. The Director for the National Cannabis Industry Association Aaron Smith made a statement on the move. Smith said “this is a huge victory for our members, our communities, and the banks that take this opportunity to serve a thriving new market”. And huge it is. In Colorado alone, the state received about $53 million in sales tax collected from marijuana. This was in the first year that marijuana was made legal in Colorado. In addition to that Colorado has made $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales. This just shows how big and profitable the industry is becoming. As cannabis drug become legal in more locations the industry will continue to boom.

This boom will mean an increase in medical marijuana delivery businesses, dispensaries and suppliers. And other support businesses will arise. Based on how profitable the businesses have been there will be a lot of revenue coming in. This cash needs to be in a secure place. Now that banks can offer their services to the industrymedical marijuana delivery the business owners will not have to worry about saving their revenue securely. Being able to bank their earnings will also help to open up more investment opportunities for the marijuana business owners.

Aaron Smith also said “no legitimate business should be forced to manage its payroll, taxes, utility bills, and licensing fees entirely in cash.” And nothing is truer. These businesses should have equal avenues available to them as other businesses that are contributing to the economy. And banks should not have to worry that they are in the wrong.

More Medical Marijuana Delivery Benefits to Come

This is just the beginning. Banks being opened up to the industry is only in the first phase. As the marijuana industry grows more and more opportunities will open up. Cannabis news is in the headlines. And more of this news is positive for the industry.

Senators Discuss Federal Pot with Families


icon  21 Mar, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana, weed, Pot, ganja, whatever name you call it, it has come a long way. The herb is a very potent plant that has been tried and tested by many researchers and medical practitioners. There are a wide variety of medical marijuana benefits. It is used to provide treatment to several diseases and illnesses. And caregivers of family members and loved ones who need medical marijuana treatment have lobbied with senators to get a legal change that allows them to access Pot without the fear of federal punishment.

Recently, Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and New Jersey’s Cory Booker joined in with the families to petition support for the bipartisan Bill that will remove the restrictions for patients in need of medical marijuana.

Patients Get Access to Pot Without Fear of Prosecution

Senators Gillibrand and Booker introduced the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act. This new Act will bring several changes to the legislation of the cannabis drug. Firstly, it would allow each state to set their own policy in regards to medical marijuana. Secondly, marijuana cannabis would be removed from Schedule I and placed in Schedule II. Drugs under Schedule I have no benefit. And clearly this is not the case with marijuana. The changes would mean that marijuana would now be under Schedule II. Under Schedule II, these drugs have been identified as having medical benefits. Thirdly, CARERS would allow each state to import Cannabidiol as a treatment for epilepsy and seizure disorders.

The CARERS Act would also allow doctors in the Department of Veteran Affairs to prescribe cannabis to military veterans. Under this new Act, marijuana dispensaries will be able to access financial and banking services. Finally, the Act will remove bureaucratic red tape that prohibited research on Pot.

Medical Marijuana or Pot Benefits are Countless

Scientists have discovered marijuana benefits for treatment of various medical issues. Marijuana treatment is used for diabetes, anti-aging, anxiety and there’s even marijuana cancer treatment. A few parents and caregivers who joined in to support Senators Gillibrand and Booker spoke to how marijuana helped their loved ones to battle illness. And how they were looking to try cannabis to treat them. Dravet Syndrome, an epilepsy condition, the Aicardi Syndrome and childhood epilepsy known as Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome are a few of the diseases that were mentioned.

Hemp.org reported: “I am proud to stand alongside Senators Gillibrand and Booker to support their leadership in ending the federal ban on marijuana as a medicine,” said Paula Notari, whose daughter Emma was diagnosed with a rare form of severe epilepsy, Ohtahara’s Syndrome and passed away a few weeks after her birth. “No family should have to endure the loss of a child like we did with our precious Emma Rose.”

Cannabis Cures Cancer; Order Cannabis Online Today


icon  19 Mar, 2015  /  icon  7        Author: Support Pot Valet

Medical marijuana has made strides in the past couple years. Quite a few researchers have conducted multiple researches on the potency, effects, benefits and uses of marijuana. Over the years researchers and some medical practitioners have found that marijuana has an effect on cancer patients. Marijuana cancer treatment has been made available to patients and some have benefited from using it. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist from Compultense University in Madrid, Spain is one of the researchers that have been conducting experiments on the cannabis drugs. Sanchez has been researching marijuana cannabis for over 10 years now. In particular she has been studying the molecular activity of cannabinoids.

Research like these help to grow the marijuana industry. It identifies and promotes the many benefits of the herb. This will help to decriminalize the drug even more, and make it easier for persons to order cannabis online and through other means.

order cannabis online

Study of the molecular activity of cannabinoids

According to Worldtruth.tv, Sanchez and her team discovered that the tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, for short, which is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis causes cancer tumor cells to self destruct. The cannabis drug was found to have anti-cancer properties from research that the team conducted. The research they did used lab tests and animal trials. When the THC was introduced they found that the tumor cells destroyed themselves. They committed suicide. While chemotherapy affects all tumors, this research also found that the THC effect only affected the cancer tumors but did not interfere with the other normal cells. This is great news for cancer treatment. Order cannabis online for cancer treatment, would be great news for patients.

How the endocannabinoid system works

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that react to cannabinoid receptors. The endocannabinoids is indigenously present in our bodies. It works on cannabinoids receptors that are a target of the THC in cannabis. The THC, endacannabinoids, and other cannabinoids, are synthesized, through enzymes, to bind to the cannabinoid receptors. This is called the endacannabinoid system. This system regulates a lot of body functions such as appetite, food intake and reproduction. This shows the wide therapeutic potential of the herb. When cannabis enters the body, whether its consumed or inhaled the endocannabinoid system works on the cannabinoid receptors and causes the cancer tumor cells to self-destruct.

This research is groundbreaking and will support the case for legalization of medical marijuana globally. To order cannabis online and be able to treat diseases such as cancer would be a great accomplishment for researchers, scientists, and the medical and marijuana industry. One can only hope the research will find more supporting results for the plant. This will allow more patients, of various ailments and diseases to order cannabis online and provide much needed relief and treatment.

Medical Marijuana Benefits , $2.3 Million Generated

Marijuana’s popularity is growing. As time goes by more countries are legalizing the marijuana industry. It is becoming legal to grow, buy and use marijuana. The times are changing. It is marijuana’s time to show its vast benefits. Colorado was one of the first states to legalize marijuana cannabis. And they have started to see the effects of medical marijuana benefits, and marijuana benefits on a whole. Several weeks ago it was reported that Colorado earned $53 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales. And they expect this number to grow based on projections. Those results helped to show other undecided states that the medical marijuana benefits are real and tangible. Now more recent and positive reports that Colorado has generated $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales is even more encouraging.

Colorado’s Encouraging Marijuana Sales Results

Colorado’s Department of Revenue reported around $36.4 million of recreational marijuana sales in January, according to Thecannabist.co. In comparison to last years January sales from marijuana, which was $14.69 million, this years sales has risen immensely. Though the medical marijuana benefits are almost limitless. In January 2014 the state earned more from medical marijuana sales than in January 2015. In 2014, which was the year that Colorado legalized marijuana, the marijuana earnings were at $700 million. That amount included $385.9 million for medical marijuana and $313.2 million for recreational marijuana.

This provides plenty of positive results to other states that need a push to legalize medical marijuana. The recreational and medical marijuana benefits are beginning to show more these days. Other states and countries cannot deny these benefits. The tax revenue benefit is almost a bonus. “The real benefit of these laws is that it’s taking marijuana sales out of the underground market and ensuring the product is controlled” says legalization advocate Mason Tvert.

Other States to Legalize Marijuana

The governor’s budget office estimate Colorado will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of recreational pot sales. $40 million to public school construction, $85 million on youth prevention and substance abuse treatment, $12.4 million on public health, $3 million on law enforcement and public safety and almost $2 million on industry oversight, according to money.cnn.com. If states are looking for tangible economic benefits, Colorado has shown them what is possible.

Not only will cannabis drugs help to raise tax revenues in each state, but it will also help persons who need the herb for treatment. Medical marijuana is used for several illnesses and diseases. It helps with pain relief, insomnia, migraines and so much more. There is also marijuana cancer treatment. Decriminalizing marijuana will only open up the industry to more positive and beneficial possibilities.

icon  14 Mar, 2015  /  icon  9        Author: Support Pot Valet

The world is finally catching up with marijuana. A bipartisan Senate legislation will remove federal prosecution for users in states where the drug is legal. Several states have legalized medical marijuana. And a few states have included recreational use. This Bill will be quite useful for many states. This is a step in the right direction. The benefits of medical marijuana are undeniable and this new Bill proves it. As the marijuana world becomes more open, more and more persons will benefit from the healing component in the cannabis drug.

This new Bill will protect marijuana patients, doctors and businesses. All states that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes can no longer prosecute. Persons who need marijuana will no longer need to fear using the drug. It will be federally legal to use the drug because of this new Bill.

Also, for years now marijuana has been classified as a most-dangerous drug. It has been under the Schedule I category for years. Drugs under Schedule I have no benefit. And clearly this is not the case with marijuana. The changes would mean that marijuana would now be under Schedule II. Under Schedule II, these drugs have been identified as having medical benefits. This is a big move for marijuana. It is also a bold statement from the Senate as it recognizes the value of medical marijuana.

Decriminalized marijuana

Michael Collins, policy manager for the Drug Policy Alliance shared his sentiments on the Bill: “This bipartisan legislation allows states to set their own medical marijuana policies and ends the criminalization of patients, their families, and the caregivers and dispensary owners and employees who provide them their medicine.” It will be decriminalized for users. Decriminalized for growers. Decriminalized for medial marijuana dispensaries. Decriminalized for patients. Decriminalization of marijuana will also mean fewer restrictions on researchers. This will enable researchers to find out more about its potency and uncover more benefits of medical marijuana.

Will the Bill come to life?

The passing of this Bill will only be confirmed when it is passed. The good news is that this is a Bipartisan Bill. That should mean fewer naysayers. But, only time will tell.

Medical marijuana benefits are truly undeniable

This Bill is only on the table because of the numerous benefits of medical marijuana. Recreational users will talk about how marijuana helps them to relax. Some might not say relaxation is a benefit, but it is. Aside from recreational use, marijuana has many medical benefits.

Marijuana Potency Truth & Medical Marijuana Delivery Service


icon  12 Mar, 2015  /  icon  9        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana is used for the effect it gives. The effect is determined by the plant’s potency. For many years the potency level of marijuana cannabis has baffled researchers. The stronger the potency, the better the marijuana effect.

Testing for marijuana potency
In marijuana, the main psychoactive ingredient is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. The THC level determines the marijuana potency. The Kahn lab uses a special method to test potency. It is called liquid chromatography. This method uses special solvent with the test subject to determine potency. Another method is gas chromatography. This method heats up the test subject. However, doing this affects the results. The THC level is also affected by prolonged storage. That is something a marijuana delivery service and a medical marijuana delivery service should consider.

Some Pot users may simply test various cannabis drugs. Currently, the Bruce Banner #3 strain is considered one of the strongest. Bruce Banner, the scientist who turns into a green monster called Hulk. With such a name, one can only imagine the marijuana’s strength.

History of marijuana potency
Marijuana has been around for a long time. The Bruce Banner #3 might be the strongest now, but it hasn’t always been. Different strains come and go. New plants. New seasons. And different potency levels. The marijuana potency level has changed a lot over the years. In the 1970’s there was an increase in the marijuana potency. There was an increase in potency level in 1977. But in 1978 and 1979 there was consecutive decline. Then in later years there was another fluctuation. In the years 1993 to 2008 researchers found a slight increase in marijuana’s THC levels. Then in 2010 researchers stated that marijuana potency had a penchant to move upwards. So marijuana potency mostly increases over the years.

However, comparisons may have been slightly compromised. This is because in the 1970’s, researchers tested potency using different amounts. In the 1970’s they tested far fewer than they did in the 2000’s.

Good news for marijuana
Even with the discrepancy in testing, marijuana potency may very well be increasing. Everyone can grow marijuana. And more importantly more states and countries are legalizing the drug. With persons growing marijuana that increases the chances of more and more stronger strains being grown. Someone did a Bruce Banner #3, maybe someone else will do an Incredible Bruce Banner strain.

The marijuana industry is growing and changing. Not only is it being legalized around the globe but it is also helping to treat illnesses and diseases. Medical marijuana benefits are quite a few. It is used for pain relief, insomnia, and diabetes and there is also marijuana cancer treatment.

The stronger marijuana gets, perhaps the better it will be.

There are several methods you can use to grow marijuana; one of them is by growing it indoor hydroponically.

How to Grow Medical Marijuana Hydroponically

It’s known by many names, marijuana, cannabis, pot, weed, whatever you call this herb is used for various purposes and ailments. You can buy marijuana online or order marijuana online through an online medical dispensary or a regular medical dispensary. Or you can grow medical marijuana, long as it’s legal to do so, where you are. There are several methods you can use to grow medical marijuana; one of them is by growing it indoor hydroponically.

The word hydroponics originates from Latin and means ‘working water’, in other words it means growing plants without soil.

grow medical marijuana

First things first, get all the items you need to start this process: pots, white paint or mylar, hydroponic nutrients, potting medium e.g. coco coir, compact fluorescent lights, a timer, pH soil test and of course the marijuana seeds or clones. Once you’ve gotten all these things you can move on to the next step.

Select the room you’ll be growing in, the grow room, and get the walls ready by painting them white, either semi-gloss or flat. Flat white paint is better because glossy white will reflect about 55% of the light source. Mylar is also very reflective.

Take a look at the steps:

  • The next thing to do is set up the grow lights in the room.
  • The light should only be a little higher than the height of your pots with an ideal temperature of around 80 °F (27 °C) and 85 °F (29 °C).
  • Your grow room also needs proper ventilation.

And now that your room is ready you need to germinate the marijuana seeds. Once the germination process is complete, move the seeds to the potting medium and feed it with water and nutrients. You’ll need to watch it carefully to make sure you’re giving it enough water and nutrients.

Right now the plant would be in its vegetative stage, when it is focused on growing. Give the plants about 18-24 hours of light daily to keep it in the vegetative stage until they are half the intended height. And when they’ve reached that height you start the flowering stage by giving the plant about 12 hours of light daily.

Get rid of the male plants, which do not have usable buds. It will take a couple weeks, 6-12 weeks, for the flowering stage to complete, focus on feeding it with pH’ed water and then a couple more weeks before harvest time. Then it will be time to trim and cure your hydroponically grown marijuana.

Using the hydroponics method has the advantage of producing higher yields of medical cannabis and it also has a shorter grow time when compared to growing it in soil. So whether you need marijuana for migraines, anxiety, diabetes or any other of the numerous medical marijuana benefits, growing hydroponically is an option to consider.

Typically, when someone is hungry their body lets them know. Some stomachs start grumbling. Mouths get dry. Food appears in dreams. Some even get weak. And with all these outward signs the brain and the body are sending signals too. Signals that make the body show that state of hunger.

Pot smokers may say they are not hungry before they take a dose. But they are definitely hungry after. So what does marijuana cannabis do to send signals of hunger?
