    After his pedicure and chewing some treats (antler, horn, hoof and rawhide), Copper spent most of the day like this,..... Nibbler spotted my drying rack inside. Normally its outside or in the garage, but I think the throw rugs will freeze before they dry. I think the birds enjoy taunting my cat. I know she's hoping one day a bird gets in the house for her to play with.

    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.

    November 30, 2017 PORTLAND, Ore. – Pacific Power is prepping for a colder than average winter in the Pacific Northwest. “It’s a law of physics,” representatives of the power company wrote. “The colder it gets outside, the more energy it takes to keep your house warm.” With the chill beginning to set in, many residents will start paying more to heat their homes. However, not everyone has the money to stay comfortable this winter. But Pacific power is trying to help those customers in need with the energy assistance programs..... https://kobi5.com/news/energy-assistance-programs-help-keep-needy-warm-66323/

    Continued Protection Sought For Medical-Marijuana States An Oregon Congressman and one from California who are the namesakes of an amendment that prevents federal officials using public funds to enforce federal laws against medical marijuana are pushing to ensure the protections remain for another year. Posted: Nov. 30, 2017 5:12 PM Updated: Nov. 30, 2017 5:13 PM Posted By: Emma Balkenbush AddThis Sharing Buttons SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon Congressman and one from California who are the namesakes of an amendment that prevents federal officials using public funds to enforce federal laws against medical marijuana are pushing to ensure the protections remain for another year. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in May told congressional leaders that it would be "unwise" to renew the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment, saying marijuana is harmful and is banned by federal law. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, an Oregon Democrat, said the leadership of the House didn't allow a vote on any marijuana-related amendments. But the Senate Appropriations Committee included the provision in its bill...... http://www.kdrv.com/content/news/Continued-Protection-Sought-For-Medical-Marijuana-States-461147073.html

    I recently had the opportunity to sample some of True Terpene's products. When they arrived I just couldn't wait to try these out, so I enhanced a small sample of some so-so dabs with some super lemon haze by True Terpenes. WOW!!! Now the label says to let the flavors cure into the concentrate for 24 - 48 hrs, but I couldn't wait. Right off I noticed a major improvement. Limonene was the obvious flavor, but there are many others in there, creating a complex flavor experience. I am excited to taste the fully cured product. The flavor was very intense, but I used too much of the product, (it is difficult to get the dosage right on a small amount of concentrate since the dosage is 1-4 drops per gram), and I expect the flavors to mellow and blend as it cures. That being said...I noticed an immediate change in the effect, seriously improving and tuning the high into a bright and energetic buzz, with a clear head. I absolutely believe that the added terps upgraded my so-so dabs to a much more effective and pleasant experience.If the rest is anywhere near as good I will be well on my way to being a true believer of this product. https://www.facebook.com/TrueTerpenes/?ref=br_rs True Terpenes website

    Very interesting. I have used terps to enhance the flavor of CO2 oil for carts. I see they also make a liquidizer to make pens with shatter. Might have to give theirs a try as I do not like the one I have now (tastes like cloves). Nice strain choices too. Thanks for the share.

    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.

By: Al Olson Nov 25, 2017 ted Marijuana has long been used medicinally as an anti-nausea tool, most notably for cancer patients going through chemotherapy treatments and AIDS sufferers looking for relief. But a puzzling, counterintuitive syndrome is making headlines that suggest chronic cannabis consumers are becoming violently ill. Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, according to researchers in Colorado, can trigger stomach pain and nausea in a small number of patients.

    Among Heart Failure Patients, Cannabis Users Have Better Outcomes Marijuana users have lower risk of AFib, study suggests. Trey Reckling 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... https://thefreshtoast.com/rx/among-heart-failure-patients-cannabis-users-have-better-outcomes/

    For 2 of my hens (Sweet & Sour), they've seen fall and winter. For the rest, this is their first season change to cold and seasonal molt. Out of 7 hens, only 2 are laying (Pecker and the Barred Rock). There are things to look for when a hen stops laying besides no eggs. There are a few things that can cause this as well: health, hours of light, molting, and age. All of my hens are young and healthy. Most of my hens are molting. There's an increase of lose feathers in their coop and yard. Lot of the wild birds have been grabbing them for their nests. When hens are laying, they will come up to you and squat. This is what the do when there's a rooster around, so he can jump on and do his thing. Without a rooster around they'll go to you cause you are viewed in the rooster top position (protecting the flock). Just give them a few pets on their back and ruffle their backside neck feathers, they will stand up and fluff and go back to whatever. When they stop laying, they'll stop doing this. A quick winter tip for chickens: when it gets cold/freezing put some balm on their comb....and get ready for a fight, they hate their comb being messed with since its what they peck when dealing with pecking order disputes. This will protect it from frostbite. This is more for red combs. The comb is how they cool off. Before my young hens start looking really sad with their molts, here they are. Feisty is a winter hardy breed, so she should lay during the winter. She doesn't run up to me, so I think she's starting a molt. Golden Nugget is the furthest into her molt. With the missing feather pattern, it almost looks like a rooster was with her Pecker is still laying Sweet hasn't been laying well this year and 1/2 of the season before. She's 3 years old and should still be in her prime for laying. Her box buddy Sour is the same breed and age and lays normal. I'll be getting some chicks of her breed in a few months. I'll let her be a mommy, but if her egg production doesn't improve; I already have a new home set up for her and Sour. Sour is molting. She's lost her tail feathers and when she flaps her wings, fluffs, or runs. There are feathers everywhere. Road Runner is molting and usually leaves a trail of feathers as she runs. Her breed normally lays during the winter. Barred Rock is laying. Notice her comb. It's big, floppy, and bright red. It's going to be a blast to catch her to balm on her. I get my hens feed from a local company/store. I feed my ladies All in One. It has : Crude Protein, 18% Lysine, 0.92% Methionine, 0.34% Crude Fat, 3.0% Crude Fiber, 4.0% Calcium (minimum), 3.5% Calcium (maximum), 4.5% Phosphorus, 0.58% Salt (minimum), 0.3% Salt (maximum), 0.5% Ingredients: Grain Products, Wheat Millrun, Plant Protein Products, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, DL Methionine, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D-3, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement,Riboflavin, Niacin, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Choline Chloride Supplement, Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinal, Bisulfite (Source of Vitamin K3), Folic Acid Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Manganese Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Potassium Iodide, Zinc Sulfate, Zine Oxide, Sodium Selenite, Ground Rice Hulls, and Mineral Oil. They also get the hen scratch, veggie scrapes, and whatever else they find (plant, scrapes, bugs, worms, etc). Their hen scratch is A Blend of Cracked Corn and Whole Wheat for Poultry and other Fowl. Guaranteed Analysis Crude Protein, 9.0% Crude Fat, 3.0% Crude Fiber, 5.0% Crude Ash, 3.0% Ingredients: Cracked Corn, Whole Wheat My hens always have Oyster Shell around. I have a few bird feeder in the yard, so my hens get bird seed too. While I was growing up, my parents had 20 hens (10 barred rocks and 10 Rhode island reds) and one lucky/happy rooster dad named Charlie. Charlie showed up at one of my friends places. They didn't have chickens nor could they find the owner, so we took him in. My main complaint with Charlie was he crowed under my window every morning starting around 5:30 am til about 7am. My dad always kept the barn light on, and we got nearly 20 eggs a day...less if they moved their nest (3 story barn, mult pole barns, under bushes, in garage, etc) or were molting. I know hens are affected by light when it comes to laying. My coop doesn't have electrical, so I've been looking into solar power. Below is what I got them. LightMe 2016 Newest Multi-functional Super Bright 20 LED Bulb Light Dimmable Solar Powered Lamp with Remote Controller for Outdoor Hiking Fishing Camping Tent(White-20LED) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CL71KIA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 so far my hens seem to like it. least they complain loudly before I turn it on in the evening and quiet down after. I'm hoping after they are done with molting, egg production will go up.

    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..... https://hightimes.com/culture/medical-marijuana-may-long-term-advantages-pets/

    California Pot Farms Hit By Wildfires Receive Neighborly Aid Buds without borders. November 30, 2017 Adam Drury Natural disasters, for all the havoc and devastation they bring, tend to bring out the best in people. Faced with such overwhelming loss, the normal “every person for themselves” mentality that normally prevails is cast aside, and people come together to organize for mutual aid. When hurricane Harvey ripped through Texas, for example, reports that some vultures were trying to sell cases of bottled water for $400 generated enormous outrage, even though the “logic” of supply-and-demand would demand nothing less. The point is, ideas which usually generate ridicule in a capitalist society—redistributing resources, organizing mutual aid, breaking down borders—suddenly become not just a possibility, but a necessity for survival. So when we see California pot farms hit by wildfires receive neighborly aid from Oregon, we smile inside. The cannabis industry is looking out for its own.... https://hightimes.com/news/california-pot-farms-hit-wildfires-receive-neighborly-aid/

    Josephine Co. Commissioners still working on cannabis ordinance November 29, 2017 Elizabeth Ruiz Josephine County, Ore. — Josephine County Commissioners are continuing to look at ordinances relating to pot grows in rural areas of the county. They held a public hearing Wednesday which resulted in heated debate from both sides. Josephine County Commissioners heard from nearly 50 Josephine County residents about their concerns. It’s a very controversial topic with strong opinions on both sides. “It’s a group of growers here in Josephine County who have decided they need to protect their property rights,” Attorney Ross Day said. Ross Day is an attorney representing those who feel their private property rights would be violated if new rules regulating marijuana are passed by commissioners. “The law says that the rights you have at the time you acquire your property are the rights you have until you sell it,” Day said. Many from the newly created organization called F.A.R.M.S. — or Farming and Agricultural Rights Management Society — attended the public hearing for the ordinance Wednesday morning.... https://kobi5.com/news/local-news/josephine-co-commissioners-still-working-cannabis-ordinance-66226/

    Hawaii Police Order People With Medical Pot To Surrender Guns To The State Nick Givas Media Reporter 12:37 PM 11/28/2017 Hawaiian authorities have asked medical marijuana users to “voluntarily surrender” firearms due to their medicinal status. This may mark the first time a law enforcement entity has moved to confiscate guns from cannabis patients. Marijuana users in Honolulu are expected to turn over all firearms and ammunition to the state within 30 days of receiving the notice, according to a letter signed by police chief Susan Ballard, reported the website Leafly. The state’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened in August, but federal law prevents patients who ingest cannabis from owning a firearm. Marijuana is still categorized as a Schedule I drug by the government and is considered in the same league as ecstasy and heroin..... http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/28/hawaii-police-order-people-with-medical-pot-to-surrender-guns-to-the-state/

    Hello everyone if you don't know me yet my name is Aaron and I am known as Redmud online. I have been building and remodeling small businesses and homes for almost 30 years its one of my passions another passion of mine has been cannabis. When i moved to the Eugene area I had already decided to go a slightly different direction, when I met a young man with over 10 years growing experience in all types of environments from closets and tents to warehouses. He wanted to start building grow rooms, warehouses, and greenhouses so we teamed up to see what we can accomplish. Built 2 Grow Our goal is to create efficient and easy to operate growing environments tailored to the crop and customers. From single plant tents and closets to automated warehouses and greenhouses tailored to grow your crop or crops fruits, veggies, forest products, houseplants, and of course cannabis. We can build your cloning or seed breeding business or put together your bomb proof extracts room. We have our first build under our belts. We built a 14,000 watt medical grow space in a garage of a commercially zoned house. We still have a few details to finish up in one of the flower areas but it is already vegging some clones from stocks he already had. The build. We sectioned off three seperate areas with Panda plastic IDK being from the NW it reminds more of an Orca lol. We also plumbed them all for hydro fill and drain lines Area 1 is the veg area its roughly 8' x 12' it has 2 double end 1000 watt full spectrum HPS hoods with adjustable click lock pulleys an 8" vortex exhaust fan and carbon filter pulling air through the lights and pushing the air through the filter and out to our exhaust port. Area 2 is 10' x 18' a flower area with 6 double end 1000 watt lights attached to a common rack that is adjustable. This room had the only window so we stuffed a 10,000 btu air conditioner in it, then built an exhaust box around it to exhaust the spent oxygen rich air. During the cold or hot months we have it set up to flip flop with area 3 with thermostatic dampers and exhaust fans as well as being a sealed room during lights on for CO2. The owner also intends to scrog in this room is why a movable rack system made sense. The lights fan pulls air through a carbon filter from the other flower area and is exhausted through the box in the window. Area 3 is a 10'x 18' area with 6 1000 watt double end lights hung with ratchet pulleys independent of each other. The lights 8 " exhaust fan pulls air through a carbon filter in the common/trim and storage area pushes air through the lights and is exhausted out the box Everything was installed to have a minimal impact on the existing walls and structure so everything can be removed and put back to regular use if the owner decides to. Here are a few more pics of the structure and parts.The veg area is on the right in this one area 2 flower area 3 flower lights clone and hydro equipment I plan to update with new projects and follow ups if possible. If anyone has questions about anything you see just ask I'll do my best to answer them asap. Sent from my Z959 using Tapatalk

    The Huge Profits, And Questionable Benefits, Of Urine Testing Until the feds step in, the profits will keep flowing.

That’s nice, surely—but more to the point, it generates serious profits for the country’s healthcare-industrial complex.

    5 Ways Cannabis Helps Keep The Peace Suck it, Jeff Sessions. November 18, 2017 Mark Miller Attorney General Jeff Sessions believes that legalizing pot increases crime and violence. The evidence proves that he’s wrong. Here are five ways cannabis helps keep the peace. 1. Dispensaries Keeping the crime rate down in America’s second-largest city is no mean feat; however, that’s exactly what medical pot dispensaries have accomplished in Los Angeles. After a 2013 ballot measure closed hundreds of pot shops, the crime rate in neighborhoods that were deprived of their dispensaries actually increased: Larceny, property crimes and auto break-ins all went up after the dispensaries went down. 2.

    Couple Handcuffed, Placed In Police Cruiser For Hours After Insurance Agent Mistakes Hibiscus Plants For Marijuana November 16, 2017 6:31 PMBy Paul Martino BUFFALO TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A Buffalo Township couple says they were handcuffed and placed in a police cruiser for hours while police searched their property after an insurance agent mistook the couple’s hibiscus plant for marijuana. The incident started back in September when a large tree from neighboring property fell onto the side of Edward and Audrey Cramer’s home, causing damage to the house and an antique garden tractor. (Photo Credit: KDKA) A press release alleges that when the Cramers’ insurance agent, Jonathan Yeamans, arrived at the home to assess the damage, Yeamans took photos of flowering hibiscus plants in their backyard and sent the photos to police, believing the plant was marijuana.

The recent PLOS One study found motorists in France under the influence of marijuana increase their probability of causing a fatal car accident by 1.65 times – while “drivers under the influence of alcohol are 17.8 times more likely to be responsible for a fatal accident.” The study examined the specific correlation between fatal car accidents and driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana.

    Can Marijuana Help Lower Blood Pressure? Looks like it works better than most current treatments. By: Kent Gruetzmacher Nov 15, 2017 During the late ’70s a study by J.C. Merritt detailed the relationship between blood pressure and marijuana, and how the plant can help those with elevated levels, especially patients who are hypertensive. The study explained that the cannabis component Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol was able to lower blood pressure in subjects and it consistently made them feel better within 3.5 hours of use. Studies during the ’90s were lacking due to the federal strict guidelines regarding studying cannabis and its properties, leading to an abandonment of a promising experiment that would have benefited a large portion of the population. These strict federal guidelines have affected recent researches as well, most recently in 2013...... https://thefreshtoast.com/news/marijuana-helps-lower-blood-pressure-easily/

    Here’s How Marijuana Can Make Your Bones Stronger CBD. It does a body good. Richard Faulk Nov 10, 2017 In recent years, the lion’s share of attention to (and funding for) medical marijuana research has gone to test the herb’s potential to relieve tremors, inflammation, and pain. But for about 20 years, Israel has been the center of a small body of research in a very different direction: the effect of cannabinoids on bone health. A study from the summer of 2015 has provided some of the clearest evidence so far that the cannabinoid CBD “significantly” helps heal bone fractures. A research team, led by Yankel Gabet of Tel Aviv University, treated broken limbs in lab rats (OK, let’s just try not to think about that part…) with either THC or CBD, the two primary active compounds in cannabis. Dr. Gabet summarizes his team’s observations: “We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing [and] provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue.” In other words, CBD—but not THC—not only heals bone, but makes it “harder to break in the future.”..... https://thefreshtoast.com/cannabis/marijuana-can-make-bones-stronger/

The project will be led by Dario Cantu, a viticulturist and enologist at the University of California at Davis. Colorado-based Front Range Biosciences will be a partner in the study. “We have successfully applied cutting-edge DNA sequencing technologies and computational approaches to study challenging genomes of diverse crops and associated microorganisms. We are now excited to have the opportunity to study the genome of hemp,” Cantu said in a statement. “Decoding its genome will allow us to gain new insight into the genetic bases of complex pathways of secondary metabolism in plants.”.... https://thefreshtoast.com/cannabis/how-much-do-we-know-about-weed-scientists-mapping-cannabis-dna/

    The FDA Supports Marijuana Research By Jessica Leone - November 10, 2017 A recent article, published in Forbes has shed some light on the FDA and its position on marijuana. According to experts, the administration is open to further research and study of the plant and its medicinal uses when it comes to treating veterans. There is an abundance of research available, showing the plant’s ability to effectively treat many conditions suffered by veterans, including chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder. Nonetheless, the VA and its doctors and hospitals are not at liberty to review the plant as a possible form of treatment due to federal law. Schedule I Classification Marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I drug which places it alongside heroin as the highest risk drug. The category is for substances that are considered to be highly addictive, unsafe for human testing, and contain no medicinal properties. As a result, research on the plant has been banned. Last August, the DEA lifted the ban for scientists willing to go through the rigorous application process. However, the Department of Justice has not approved any applications and government approved medical research of the plant remains blocked..... http://www.marijuanaresources.com/fda-supports-marijuana-research/

    Here’s a Really Bad Marijuana Study Thor Benson August 10, 2017 A marijuana study that was published on Wednesday is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. The study, done by a doctoral student of epidemiology and biostatistics at Georgia State University, claims marijuana users are three times as likely to die from high blood pressure. The reason it’s such a bad study is that anyone who had ever used marijuana in their entire life was labeled a “marijuana user.” “Steps are being taken towards legalisation and decriminalisation of marijuana in the United States, and rates of recreational marijuana use may increase substantially as a result,” lead author Barbara A Yankey said in a statement. “However, there is little research on the impact of marijuana use on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular mortality.” It would seem there is still little research on this, because Yankey’s study does not address this issue.... http://the420times.com/2017/08/heres-a-really-bad-marijuana-study/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+The420Times+%28The+420+Times%29
