    Are CBD Dog Treats The New Wave Of Cannabis?

    Are CBD Dog Treats The New Wave Of Cannabis? We tried some on a senior pup. This is what happened. Danielle Guercio Jan 08, 2018 Like humans, dogs have an endocannabinoid system. Since we’re not 100 percent sure of all of its functions and finer details, all we can really decipher is that it’s under-serviced for the time being. In humans, that often means throwing the broad spectrum of cannabinoids at a concern, but this strategy does not work with dogs. THC is never a good idea for a pup, as it makes them nervous and anxious. We do know that non-psychoactive in humans CBD is also not psychoactive in dogs, so many have been seeking it out to help with various canine issues. My babe Chaco is a senior Boston Terrier/Beagle mix and she’s got her share of quirks. A licking fixation paired with a traditional Beagle food obsession combines to make her one misbehaved mess if the conditions are right. For this reason, she is crated when alone and we keep anything she would eat out of reach. With such a high energy and potentially destructive set of anxieties, she’s a great candidate for something of this nature...... https://thefreshtoast.com/cannabis/are-cbd-dog-treats-the-new-wave-of-cannabis/
  4. Experimental blood test accurately spots fibromyalgia March 18, 2019 by Misti Crane, The Ohio State University For the first time, researchers have evidence that fibromyalgia can be reliably detected in blood samples—work they hope will pave the way for a simple, fast diagnosis. In a study that appears in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, researchers from The Ohio State University report success in identifying biomarkers of fibromyalgia and differentiating it from a handful of other related diseases. The discovery could be an important turning point in care of patients with a disease that is frequently misdiagnosed or undiagnosed, leaving them without proper care and advice on managing their chronic pain and fatigue, said lead researcher Kevin Hackshaw, a professor in Ohio State's College of Medicine and a rheumatologist at the university's Wexner Medical Center. Identification of biomarkers of the disease—a "metabolic fingerprint" like that discovered in the new study—could also open up the possibility of targeted treatments, he said. To diagnose fibromyalgia, doctors now rely on patient-reported information about a multitude of symptoms and a physical evaluation of a patient's pain, focusing on specific tender points, he said. But there's no blood test—no clear-cut, easy-to-use tool to provide a quick answer. "We found clear, reproducible metabolic patterns in the blood of dozens of patients with fibromyalgia. This brings us much closer to a blood test than we have ever been," Hackshaw said. Though fibromyalgia is currently incurable and treatment is limited to exercise, education and antidepressants, an accurate diagnosis has many benefits, Hackshaw said. Those include ruling out other diseases, confirming for patients that their symptoms are real and not imagined, and guiding doctors toward disease recognition and appropriate treatment. "Most physicians nowadays don't question whether fibromyalgia is real, but there are still skeptics out there," Hackshaw said...... https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-03-experimental-blood-accurately-fibromyalgia.html
  5. Florida medical marijuana patients face choice: guns or cannabis? July 31, 2019 Newsroom Staff TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – More than 200,000 patients in Florida say medical marijuana is helping them. But it’s also forcing them to make a choice. Jamie Meade has struggled with rheumatoid arthritis and spinal stenosis for 15 years. “I was in constant pain well over 20 years,” he said. “…vertebrae to vertebrae, so they had to go in…” Back and neck surgeries and prescription drugs helped, “But still I have, at the end of the day, agonizing pain,” Jamie explained. “So I started looking into medical marijuana not knowing much about it.”.... https://kobi5.com/news/florida-medical-marijuana-patients-face-choice-guns-or-cannabis-107606/
  6. Hemp grower tries straw, not plastic, for his plants by Damian Mann of the Mail Tribune Tuesday, July 30th 2019 Hemp fields covered in a layer of straw may be the wave of the future, potentially replacing the acres of plastic that have become a public eyesore in Southern Oregon. A local grower began an experiment last week to cover three-quarters of an acre with straw before planting hemp, using a giant blower that fires straw through a swiveling turret that looks like an agricultural field cannon...... https://ktvl.com/features/in-the-weeds/hemp-grower-tries-hay-not-plastic-for-his-plants
  7. How Marijuana Could Help Migraine Sufferers 0 By Kate Kasbee on June 5th, 2018 If you’re not sure if you’ve had a migraine, you probably haven’t. Those who suffer from the condition know a migraine is more than just a headache – it’s a multi-symptom ordeal that seriously affects a person’s quality of life. Luckily, new research has revealed that cannabis can provide relief from the debilitating pain and nausea that accompany migraines without the side effects of prescription drugs. How do I know if I’ve had a migraine? Migraines usually progress through several stages. The first phase, prodrome, starts with neck stiffness and mood swings a few days beforehand. Some people experience flashes of light or vision loss, called an aura, just before the headache kicks in. The actual migraine is often marked by throbbing pain on both sides of the head, sensitivity to light and sound, vomiting, and blurred vision. This misery can last anywhere from four to 72 hours if it’s not treated. The final phase, postdrome, happens the day after a migraine and brings confusion, dizziness, and weakness..... https://www.marijuana.com/news/2018/06/how-marijuana-could-help-migraine-sufferers/

  10. Broad legalization cuts into medical marijuana, analysis finds by GILLIAN FLACCUS and ANGELIKI KASTANIS | Associated Press Tuesday, June 11th 2019 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — When states legalize pot for all adults, long-standing medical marijuana programs take a big hit, in some cases losing more than half their registered patients in just a few years, according to a data analysis by The Associated Press. Much of the decline comes from consumers who, ill or not, got medical cards in their states because it was the only way to buy marijuana legally and then discarded them when broader legalization arrived. But for people who truly rely on marijuana to control ailments such as nausea or cancer pain , the arrival of so-called recreational cannabis can mean fewer and more expensive options....... https://ktvl.com/features/in-the-weeds/broad-legalization-cuts-into-medical-marijuana-analysis-finds

  12. Oregon Senate takes steps to allow marijuana exports by Lincoln Graves, KATU News Wednesday, May 15th 2019 SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would allow Oregon-grown marijuana to be exported and sold in other states. Senate Bill 582 would allow the governor to enter into agreements with other states as soon as the federal government allows it in some way. Cannabis advocates say it's a possible solution to the over-abundance of weed in Oregon. If we could access even a few of the other markets that are legal now,.... https://ktvl.com/news/local/oregon-senate-takes-steps-to-allow-marijuana-exports?fbclid=IwAR3_PTHl_SrYKfM9g-ISdnX9d5jZgf3V-NLq03i9hsDh70v9yjdWdOKK2O0

(AP) — Oregonians won't be smoking joints at legal cannabis lounges anytime soon. The Statesman Journal reports that a bill to legalize cannabis lounges is "100% dead," according to Sam Chapman, legislative director for the New Revenue Coalition, the group behind Senate Bill 639.

    RIP Copper 2013- 5/3/2019

    R.I.P. COPPER 2013-5/3/2019 As anyone who has followed this link .....knows my dog Copper came from a very bad past. Whoever that 1st owner was destroyed Copper, and there is a special place in Hell for them. I had Copper for a little over 3 years trying to heal him. Physically he was healed, but his demons got the better of him. He just couldn't let go of the past. Over the last year, something in him was starting to snap. Even though he was trained, he attacked a hens (no marks I was next to her), a few months ago my kitten, Midnight ( I was next to them, and stopped it asap) then last week Copper turned on his best friend Chloe who still doesn't understand why that fight happened. She was trying to play. He tried to bite her eyes multiple times and wouldn't obey commands like Chloe was trying to. He growled showing teeth at me a few days ago. As a responsible dog owner, I know for a fact its just a matter of time before he bites someone. I know this with 1st hand knowledge with my brother's dog, Thor. I have the scars to prove it. I knew this may happen once I realized how badly damaged Copper was. I was just hoping he could recover. I had him the longest out of all the owners, and did everything I could think of. While here, Copper was never starved. He got to play, be well fed, and be loved. This morning at 7:30am, Copper left this world to go to rainbow bridge. He's at peace now and those demons can't get him anymore. I'm sorry boy, I tried my best to stop them. I was with him when he died. I didn't want him to be alone like he had been most of his early life. I wanted him to know I still cared for him and it hurt doing what had to be done. He had a bad life before I found him and did everything I could to save him. My son buried him in a field with the forest close by, a nice peaceful place for him. I just wish he could of found that in life. R.IP. COPPER I'm sorry I couldn't do more for you
  18. Medford considers how to spend $1.3 million marijuana tax revenue by Genevieve Grippo Wednesday, May 1st 2019 MEDFORD, Ore. — Marijuana tax revenue put big bucks back into the state's hands, and some of that money trickled down into Medford's local government. The city expected to collect about $1.3 million dollars by June 30th, and another $1.15 million in the 2019-2021 budget cycle. But city council has yet to decide how to spend it. The city sent out a survey asking Medford residents how they would like to see that money spent. More than 2,000 people responded, ranking the importance of eight different options. The most popular choice was money for a new aquatic center - something Medford's Parks and Recreation Department said is desperately needed. "This pool leaks about 3,000 gallons per day," said Parks and Recreation Director Rich Rosenthal as he pointed to the Jackson Pool. "You multiply that by 365, and that's a fairly substantial amount." The pool is nearly 60 years old, almost double its expected lifetime, according to Rosenthal. He said he expects it will last a couple of more seasons. After that, he said, it faces the same destiny as the Hawthorne Pool, which closed after officials found it was leaking tens of thousands of gallons of water a day near the Bear Creek Greenway...... https://ktvl.com/news/local/medford-considers-how-to-spend-13-million-marijuana-tax-revenue

    New chicks,...... and a frustrated cat

    A few days ago, Nut Nibbler noticed some birds at the feeder She was meowing and jumping at them for a bit. One bird watched her. Today, I got some new chicks. One of each: Red sex Link, Rhode Island Red, and a Plymouth Rock. Next week, I'll be getting some more These cute little fluffy balls are about the size of an egg. Enjoy how cute they are, they'll go through a ugly duckling phase. It didn't take long for Nut Nibbler to hear the chicks chirping and come out I'm sure she's plotting, she watched them for 2 1/2 hours straight until she went for a nap Her eyes kinda look glazed over,.... or is that the frustration building up? Moose came out and looked where all the chirping was coming from then went back to bed. A few years ago, he ran scared (fluffed and run low to the ground) from a baby chick roughly the same size as these. I still don't know if I should feel bad for him,.... really a 20lb cat running for a chick the size of an egg,.... or just laugh at him.

    One of my hens laid a type of egg I've haven't seen since I was a kid and it only happened once. They are called fairy eggs. They are tiny. the yolks are normally clear, but this one had a little coloring. the pics below are the same, the second one I outlined the yolk for you
