    • The "Sativa Blend" has a bright and clear headed effect, probably from the Beta Caryophyllene, so there is probably less risk of the anxiety that sometimes accompanies the more energetic Sativa strains. 
      While it is not modeled after any strain specific profile, I found it's flavor pleasant and if I did not know, i would probably not identify it as "Terpene Enhanced."
      I have to say that I have yet to be disappointed with a product from this company, from packaging all the way to quality and effectiveness.

      December 7, 2017 — So much has changed in the last few months for OMMP patients and their growers that we thought a chart explaining some of these changes might be helpful (see below). From the new “12 plant” rule to tracking in METRC, this chart should help folks sort things out.
       
      The key things to remember are: 1) If you are growing for yourself at your own home, your grow site is limited to 12 plants. And, 2) If you are a couple growing for yourselves at your own home, you can grow six medical plants each but you cannot grow any recreational plants.....

    • See How Daily Doses Of CBD Oil Saved This Young Girl’s Life
      Sophie Ryan undergoes chemotherapy and cannabis helps her survive.
      Terry Hacienda
      Dec 06, 2017  
       
       

       
      Sophie Ryan has been a cannabis consumer for four years. She started when she was not quite nine months old when she was diagnosed with Optic Pathway Glioma brain tumor.
       
      Sophie’s heart-warming story was featured on Tuesday’s syndicated talk show The Doctors. On the show, the Ryan family share the story of how CBD oil helped save their daughter’s life.
      At 8 ½ months, Sophie was diagnosed with the brain tumor that was wrapped around her optic nerve. The doctors informed Sophie’s parents, Tracy and Josh, that the only treatment was chemotherapy. Tracy began researching CBD oil for use in pediatric cancer, and in consultation with her oncology team, they began dosing Sophie alongside the chemo.....

    • So I moved wrong, and a vertebra slipped out of place, along with the attached rib. That and the accompanying muscle spasms were all the excuse I needed to review TrueTerpenes "GRANDDADDY PURPLE" concentrate enhancers. 


      I had already been impressed with TrueTerpenes "Super Lemon Haze", so I jumped at the chance to try out the effects.
      I mixed a portion of a drop out by dipping the dropper and touching it to 4 or 5 good dabs in a petri dish and warmed it until they liquified, then mixed thoroughly. I set the dish in the fridge for a few moments so it would set up and took a good dab.
      The GDP has a very intense flavor, but I really enjoyed the way it painted my tongue.  It has a nice earthy/spicy kinda thing going on. 
      Within a couple of dabs I was starting to feel my muscles relax and the spasms fade till I was finally able to find a comfortable position.  The infamous GDP couch lock set in and I spent some time just watching a video game.  By the time I was wanting to get some food I had nearly no pain except for the occasional twinge when I turned wrong.   

       
      I have to say I'm convinced that the Entourage Effect is a real thing, and I couldn't be more excited that we can now customize our flavors, and even more importantly, the effects of our concentrates.

    • Among Heart Failure Patients, Cannabis Users Have Better Outcomes
      Marijuana users have lower risk of AFib, study suggests.

      Dec 04, 2017  
      As any cannabis enthusiast will tell you, all experiences with marijuana are not the same. While people use it for its pleasant effects and therapeutic benefits, the experience isn’t fail-safe.
       
      Cannabis is known to sometimes cause an excited, even nervous or anxious reaction depending on the user, sample composition, amount consumed and other elements. Doctors call it an adrenergic state. This state is known to increase the risk of atrial fibrillation, the irregular, chaotic beating of the heart’s chambers and is also known as AFib...

      Curing Methods


      Conclusion



       


      1) INTRODUCTION

      So you’ve finally harvested your plant. You think the process to make your own top quality Cannabis has finished. Well… think again. We’re here to inform you that you are just about half way there. After you have correctly harvested and dried your crop, the real work begins to obtain the highest quality of your harvest: the curing process.

       

      The most important post-production step is the curing process. If you’ve never heard of ‘curing’, you are not alone. Maybe you know the process under another name: ripening. Just like a ‘Chateau’ leaves its wines to ripen in barrels or a Scottish distillery ages its Whiskey, you’ll have to cure your harvest. The Cannabis inflorescences need time to reach their full potential.

       

      WHAT IS CURING?

      We cure Cannabis to obtain and preserve the best aroma and taste possible and to make sure the bitter tasting chlorophyll (green color) is broken down. This makes the Cannabis very smooth, tasty and ready for consumption through inhalation.

       

      As soon as the inflorescences are harvested, the curing process begins. For the first couple of weeks, the Cannabis inflorescences will be drying and curing simultaneously. When the harvest is almost fully dry, the relative humidity of the air surrounding the flowers has to be slowly brought down to a specific level. This will allow further curing without the risk of molds infecting the inflorescences during storage or your harvest becoming too dry. When an inflorescence is fully dried without being properly cured, the bitter chlorophyll is ‘locked’ inside the cells and cannot be broken down further. This will give the inflorescence a bitter taste that is very hard and near impossible to get rid of.

      The specific level of humidity is different for each strain but will generally be somewhere between 55 and 65%. Most strains are cured with a relative humidity of 62-65% to bring out the best aroma’s and retain the best structure of the inflorescence.

       

      There are many ways you can cure your harvest. Each strain has a specific method which will bring out the best aromas. Some strains are fairly easy to cure, but other strains can really lose their magic if you choose the wrong method or cure for too long. It is very important to remember that curing is a strain specific process and is dependent on the configuration and presence of the,....................

    • Medical Marijuana May Have Long-Term Advantages For Pets
      Cannabis could transform veterinary medicine.
       
      November 30, 2017
      Adam Drury

       
      Very little is known about the use, role or potential for cannabis in pets. There are hardly any veterinary researchers who have investigated the subject; schools of veterinary medicine have produced no significant research on it. But the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine hopes to change all of that. To do so, the school is conducting an anonymous survey of pet owners to find out if, how and why they’re giving medical cannabis to their pets. Researchers with the school say data from the survey suggest medical marijuana may have long-term advantages for pets.
      UC Davis School Of Veterinary Medicine Gathering Data On Cannabis And Pets
      There are just four states in the U.S. that have yet to pass a law legalizing some form of medical marijuana. Everywhere else, medical cannabis is available or will be soon—though some places still prohibit THC and/or only provide extremely limited access.....

    • 66 Congress members make plea to extend protection for medical marijuana states
      The letter about the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer appropriations bill provision that targets DOJ spending on marijuana prosecutions was signed by five of Colorado's seven House representatives
      Nov 29, 2017
       
       
      By Aleta Labak, The Cannabist Staff
      With the current federal appropriations bill set to expire Dec. 8, there’s a new bipartisan call for continuing protection of medical marijuana states.
       
      Two congressmen behind a namesake provision for medical cannabis, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California, and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, on Wednesday sent a letter co-signed by 64 of their peers to House and Senate leadership.
       
      The letter, addressed to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, urged them to extend the “Rohrabacher-Blumenauer” provision that has been in place since December 2014, which “has successfully protected patients, providers, and businesses against federal prosecution, so long as they act within the confines of their state’s medical marijuana laws.”
       
      The missive also listed the 46 states, along with two U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, which have enacted some form of legalization of medical cannabis, “from CBD oils to the full plant.”.........
