The department then has until early October to license the first Medical Treatment Centers. Until then, no one can start growing, much less selling. The first harvest might not come in until late 2015 or beyond. Regulations may forbid Treatment Centers from importing pot from other states or countries for resale. And even if Florida does allow that, postal regulations. airline rules and state laws probably would make importation impractical. Imagine a truck full of pot driving from Colorado to Florida. If it gets stopped in Arkansas, authorities will not care that the pot is legal in both Colorado and Florida. Buyers probably will have to await the first harvest.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 2) The regulations will fill in many missing details</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The amendment does not address the sale of medical marijuana to minors. The regulations will probably mimic other states and require parental consent, but those regulations remain to be drafted. Regulators will also decide whether caregivers can have criminal records, how much pot a patient could possess, whether Florida will honor a medical marijuana card from another state and dozens of other details. The amendment foresees that regulators will establish Treatment Center licensing fees and procedures, as well as rules about security, inventory control, testing and inspections. Local zoning laws could also come into play.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 3) Some issues are spelled out in the amendment</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The amendment specifically states that driving a car or boat under the influence of marijuana would remain illegal. Marijuana could still be banned from workplaces, schools and public spaces. No insurance company or government agency can be forced to cover the cost of medical marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 4) Regulations must be &quot;reasonable&quot; and ensure the &quot;availability and safe use&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> These two phrases in the amendment could determine the outcome of any court fights over regulations or any new laws passed by the Legislature. If the Department of Health issues regulations that are too strict &mdash; say limiting counties to only one dispensary &mdash; then any citizen could sue, arguing that the regulation is unreasonable and does not ensure availability. The same would apply to new legislation that tried to restrict the system unreasonably. The amendment puts medical marijuana into the Florida Constitution, which would take precedence in any court fight over laws or regulations.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 5) The amendment establishes new immunities</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Doctors and Treatment Centers and their employees could not be sanctioned criminally or civilly for acting in accordance with the amendment and the regulations. Patients could not be sanctioned civilly or criminally for using medical marijuana. Opponents worry that this immunity would protect a medical marijuana user who drove under the influence and caused an accident. Proponents say the civil immunity is designed to protect patients from losing custody fights or employment actions simply because they use medical marijuana. A pot user could still be sued for driving under the influence, they say, because that is negligent behavior, whether the driver has taken a prescription drug, alcohol or medical marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/elections/floridas-medical-marijuana-proposal-five-things-to-know-about-amendment-2/2190045" target="_blank">http://www.tampabay.com</a></div> What To Do When Your Marijuana Grow Room Gets Hot http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/what-to-do-when-your-marijuana-grow-room-gets-hot <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">What to do when you&rsquo;re marijuana grow room is very humid?&nbsp;The grow space will naturally be humid because the marijuana plants emanate moisture that collects in the garden space. To get rid of that moisture, the easiest thing you can do is ventilate the room and replace the moisture with drier air.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">For gardens that are closed systems, a dehumidifier must be used. Dehumidifiers have cold tubing that will condense the moisture in the air and make it less humid. Of course, they do release heat and can make the grow space too hot if you&rsquo;re not careful. To avoid overheating, just affix some air vent tubing to the dehumidifier&rsquo;s exhaust so that the heat is pointed outside the grow space.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">If the room is both hot and humid, an air conditioner could work toward removing the moisture while cooling the garden.&nbsp;Download my&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ilgm-deals.com/partners/partner.php?id=129&amp;url=http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/free-download-marijuana-grow-bible" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);" target="_blank">free marijuana grow bible</a>&nbsp;and learn more about growing marijuana.</span></span></p> <div class="gallery galleryid-35639 gallery-columns-3 gallery-size-thumbnail" id="gallery-1" style="margin: auto; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon landscape" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-1.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="hot marijuana grow room 1" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35640" src="http://cdn5.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-1-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon landscape" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-2.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="hot marijuana grow room 2" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35641" src="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-2-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon landscape" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn6.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-3.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="hot marijuana grow room 3" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35642" src="http://cdn6.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/hot-marijuana-grow-room-3-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">What to do when your marijuana room is too hot?&nbsp;There are plenty of ways to cool down an overheated grow room.

These coolers won&rsquo;t add too much moisture to the air and are ideal and extremely efficient during vegetative growth.

You can keep the plants cool even if it&rsquo;s technically hot outside. If the room temperature is somewhere in the 80&prime;s (27-30*C), try to keep the water temperature in the 60&prime;s (15-20*C).

While a lot of people are pointing towards states like Oregon or perhaps California, Alaska is working diligently to bring recreational cannabis to it&#39;s citizen. And while Alaska may be a bit out of the way, that doesn&#39;t mean that they won&#39;t be a hotspot for cannabis tourism.</span><br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Alaska was actually supposed to vote on the subject next month in August but the vote has been pushed back to November. The reason for the pushback? The August election will be a state primary election while the November one will be a general election. According to history, these general elections have a greater voter turnout and it is highly anticipated that the state will pass the legal cannabis ruling.</span><br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">The campaign to get people to vote for the plant is a simple one that provides what people need; information. The Alaskan Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol aims to argue that the legalization of the plant will boost the economy of Alaska, where life is tough for a lot since the state is so barren and cold, not to mention the issues that are discovered with drinking in this state. Not only that but a booming cannabis tourism industry will bring in new people, new money, and create new jobs for the people who already live there. Legal cannabis in Alaska would follow the same basic model as Colorado and Washington, where adults 21 and older would be able to purchase cannabis simply by showing their ID, much like tobacco or alcohol. This change would allow law officials to as always, deal with real problems that need attention and no longer target non-violent stoners.</span><br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" /> <span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Although the bill is backed strongly by numerous parties, there is always some sort of opposition. In the case of the Last Frontier State, Big Marijuana Big Mistake is a grassroots coalition dedicated to keeping the plant illegal in Alaska. The group states that this ballot would industrialize and commercialize marijuana and the other products associated with it, including edibles and concentrates. BMBM uses the fear of edibles and concentrates that has been instilled since reports started surfacing that people were dying due to over ingestion of marijuana edibles. However, both incidents of the deaths haven&#39;t been directly linked to marijuana and could have been caused by underlying problems. The group also goes on to state that corporations would take away local farmers business and cause problems with mass marketing and advertising.

Sisley was getting ready to conduct the first federally approved research on the effects of cannabis on PTSD, an affliction that our veterans deal with on a constant basis. There are very few studies regarding the subject available so veterans, scientists, and marijuana activists were greatly looking forward to the study when the university terminated Sisley via letter, which stated that the researcher was getting the boot because funding was running out and because &quot;the telemedicine program she worked with is shifting in a different direction&quot;. The school denies that Sisley was fired because state legislators opposed the work and were pressuring the school to fire her, something which the school claims wasn&#39;t happening. The spokesperson from the college said that they are trying to find someone to replace Sisley.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> People were outraged when the story began to circulate the internet. Firing someone who was so close to conducting such an important study? Not okay. The study would&#39;ve taken fifty vets, all suffering from the effects of PTSD, and tested those symptoms with different strains and smoking methods of marijuana. This study would&#39;ve been the first and only controlled study of the effects that marijuana has on the illness and the fact that it&#39;s not commencing has a lot of people hanging their heads.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> While the teacher is asking to be reinstated, Ricardo Pereyda said that ending the study is a huge disservice to military vets. Pereyda served in the Army in the Iraqi war and now suffers from the symptoms, which include serious depression, anxiety, and bad insomnia. &quot;It allowed me to get some much needed rest and sleep,&quot; he said. &quot;It reduced my anxiety attacks. It just allowed me to regain something that I had lost overseas during my deployment and allowed me to reconnect with people around me.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The process of getting funding and approval for research like this is difficult and Sisley had made it quiet far. With her termination, there is a great worry that the study will no be continued. That ominous feeling is only reinforced by a statement released by Matt Barden, a spokesperson for the Drug Enforcement Administration. He stated, &quot;In regards to medical marijuana, the DEA of course recognizes the pain and suffering of individuals with seriously illness and their need for medication. However, the FDA has repeatedly concluded that marijuana has a high potentially for addition and no acceptable level of medical use.&quot; Unfortunately for Barden, the DEA, and the FDA, the acceptance of medical marijuana is spreading like wildfire and the pressure to conduct studies like these will only increase the longer the &quot;War on Drugs&quot; is dragged out.</div> Are you HIGH right meow??? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/are-you-high-right-meow-3 <p style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="you-high-right-meow" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/are-you-high-right-meow-stoner-kitty-joint-fs-fun-highmeow.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 619px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></p> German Court Says Patients Can Grow Medical Marijuana http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/german-court-says-patients-can-grow-medical-marijuana <div> <img alt="german-court-says-you-can-grow-marijuana" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/german-court-says-you-can-grow-marijuana.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 158px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />This week a German court ruled that medical marijuana patients can grow their own medicine. Germany has a medical marijuana program, but up until the court ruling, most patients had to purchase their medicine through pharmacies. Per Leafly:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The ruling occurred after five people issued a complaint to a court in Cologne after they were refused permission to grow cannabis at home. These people actually had permits to purchase and consume medical cannabis, but they wanted the option to grow plants at home because the cost to purchase cannabis was too high and their health insurance didn&rsquo;t cover it.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Three of the five plaintiffs met requirements to grow plants at home because they were able to assure the court that their plants wouldn&rsquo;t be accessible to third parties. The approved applicants will have a permit to purchase and use cannabis for medical purposes and will be permitted to grow the amount needed to treat their chronic pain. However, the other two were rejected because one patient had a too-small apartment for safe cultivation and couldn&rsquo;t prove that third parties would be denied access to the plants, while the other patient had not exhausted other available treatment options before turning to medical cannabis.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The court ruling doesn&rsquo;t apply to each and every medical marijuana patient in Germany. The court ruling means that it&rsquo;s possible for a patient that is licensed to purchase, possess, and use medical marijuana to also be granted the right to grow their own medicine. Each patient will have to pursue their own case, and if they can prove that they meet stringent requirements, then they may be granted the right to grow their own medicine.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Being able to grow ones own medical marijuana is a very important right that I wish more medical marijuana states allowed in the United States. When home cultivation isn&rsquo;t allowed, it forces patients to pay high prices to dispensaries, or in the case of Germany, high prices at pharmacies. In some cases, due to supply shortages, there isn&rsquo;t any safe access at all, as in the case of New Jersey.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/german-court-says-patients-can-grow-medical-marijuana/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com</a></div> Abusive Skunk Wax Concentrate http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/abusive-skunk-wax-concentrate <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/abusive-skunk-wax-greenworks-wax-abusiveskunk-concentrate-thc-thcfinder-1919d.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="abusive-skunk-wax" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/abusive-skunk-wax-greenworks-wax-abusiveskunk-concentrate-thc-thcfinder-1919d.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Smoke Weed? Stay Out Of Philly http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/smoke-weed-stay-out-of-philly <div> When the Philadelphia City Council voted to pass the decriminalization of up to one ounce of marijuana, citizens who smoked thought that they would at least be safe from winding up with an arrest record. But thanks to a cop with a severely poor attitude and lingering issues with racism, Philly is still not a friendly place for stoners to be. The bill passed though the Council but Mayor Michael Nutter opposes it and the Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey says that he will continue to arrest those who choose to posses marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="smoke-weed-stay-out-of-philly" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/stay-out-of-philly-if-you-smoke-weed-thcfinder.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 259px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></div> <div> In a failing economy where people really need to be working and producing goods, hindering someone&#39;s life for being in possession of a simple plant is ridiculous. Due to a dime bag, a person can be screwed out of a job for the rest of their lives. Councilman Jim Kenney was the one who introduced the bill and with a 26% poverty rate in Philadelphia, Kenney doesn&#39;t see the point in arresting people who really aren&#39;t doing anything wrong.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> A magazine in Philly did a little study and researched the amount of arrests between June 19th of this year and last Friday, which was July 18th. In that time there were 264 arrests and of that number, there were 140 people that were charged with just marijuana possession. That means that they weren&#39;t speed, being rowdy, hitting their partner, or causing trouble. They were simply in possession of the plant. The remaining 124 people were charged with additional crimes that included other drugs. Among those remaining arrests, there were also two aggravated assault cases, a handful of gun and prostitution charges, and one litterbug. 200 of the arrests made and charged with cannabis possession were released without bail.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> So all of these arrests were basically useless and the only thing they did was tarnish the records of 140 people that didn&#39;t have prior offenses and didn&#39;t resist arrest at the time that they were charged for the plant. What also remains unknown at this point is the racial breakdown of the arrests. Kenney has previously pointed out in his speeches that about 83% of the people being arrested for marijuana possession in Philly back in 2013 were black. This suggests that there are still some seriously strong racism issues happening in this city and the War on Drugs has definitely not ended here.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> What happens next depends. Mayor Nutter will be forced to take action in September, where he will have to veto the bill, sign it, or do nothing, in which case the bill would go in to effect but without the mayor&#39;s go-ahead. Even then, it can&#39;t be certain as to what will happen since Ramsey still says that he wants to fill up Philadelphia&#39;s jails and prisons with completely nonviolent offenders while rapists, murderers, and animal abusers run rampant. Clearly, there are not more important things to worry about then people who want to smoke a plant.</div> Obama Claims Drug War Is Over http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/obama-claims-drug-war-is-over <div> <img alt="obama-drug-war-over" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/obama-says-war-on-drugs-is-over.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 185px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />I realize that it&#39;s difficult to read this title without laughing. Let&#39;s face it, the drug war is far from over and probably won&#39;t end for a good amount of years. Obama would like us to think that we&#39;re safe... But in reality, the DEA and law enforcement are going to continue to bust people for &quot;crimes&quot; when they could be focusing that energy elsewhere, on the countless other problems that plague the cities we live in.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The National Drug Control Strategy released last week said that officials were going to put on a more sympathetic and humane approach to drug users and the problem of addiction. There is talk of education and public health, rather than increased police forces and harsh punishments. Officials are also trying out this crazy new idea of using evidence to back up their claims and are trying to opt for compassionate messaging to the people. But is it for real or is this just a facade?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> If you&#39;re one of the 264 people arrested in Philly for marijuana possession in the past month or so, you&#39;re probably not buying the fact that the drug war is over. Most people aren&#39;t, for that matter. The government may be telling us that the drug war is over but their actions speak much differently. The White House and the Office of National Drug Control Policy have spent years using taxpayer money and other resources to imprison, abuse, and ruin the lives of the people who have happened to fall in the grasp of addiction (whether it is cannabis or something else). These people do not need jail.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> These people need help. And serious help, not the nonsense propaganda that anti-drug companies pump in to mainsteam media. Hey guys, here&#39;s a piece of advice. Your ads don&#39;t work and are the subject of massive ridicule in the stoner community (and I&#39;m sure other communities as well). If you make an ad of a dog telling it&#39;s owner to stop smoking weed, there&#39;s a strong chance that people will for the most part just brush your ad off, change the channel, and pack another bongload.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Even though Obama and his cronies claim that they&#39;re trying to get the negativity out of the drug addiction scene, it&#39;ll never happen. Since the use of these drugs is still a crime and those &quot;crimes&quot; are punishable with jail time, community service, and loss of personal property or children, there will always be negativity associated with drug abuse. And not negativity in the sense of sympathy which is what is needed. Negativity in the sense that these people need help and our government would rather lock them up in jail, while simultaneously killing thousands of people not only in this country but in places like Colombia and Mexico.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Arrest rates in the United States are so ridiculously high (700 per every 10,000) that research is beginning to show that the amount of people in prison and not working/contributing to society. Too many people are in jail and there are not enough people working in society. The release is also a problem, as families get broken up and those released are less likely to get rehired at a job.</div> Does Marijuana Help You Exercise? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/does-marijuana-help-you-exercise <div> <img alt="mj-help-you-exercise" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/does-marijuana-help-you-exercise.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 143px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />I like to exercise, especially playing basketball. Physical fitness is something that I have always tried to take seriously, although admittedly, I take it more serious at certain times compared to others. Currently, my physical fitness is not where it needs to be, but I&rsquo;ll try to get that figured out sooner than later. A question I have received at TWB from time to time is &lsquo;does marijuana help you exercise?&rsquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> I have lifted weights and played basketball after getting high, and it seems to put me in a zone that I don&rsquo;t get into when sober. I feel more focused, and more in touch with my body. Marijuana doesn&rsquo;t necessarily motivate me to workout, but once I&rsquo;m at the gym, it helps me get a better workout, if that makes sense. Leafly recently published an article that talks more about marijuana and exercise. A few excerpts are below:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;It&rsquo;s not news to the medical community that the human body stores tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), the main psychoactive in cannabis, in fat. However, a study put out this August in Drug and Alcohol Dependence has shown that this storage process can give exercisers an extra boost, even up to 28 days after consumption.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;Yet, contrary to popular thought, it&rsquo;s not just the endorphins (the compounds which make you feel excited after activities such as exercise and sex) that make physical activity so great. A 2003 study found that exercise actually activates the endocannabinoid system in the same way that the cannabis plant does. The endocannabinoid system is a group of lipids (types of fats) and cell receptors that cannabinoids (compounds like THC and CBD) bind to inside the body. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for easing pain, controlling appetite, and influences mood and memory. &rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;A recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine has found that regular cannabis consumers have fasting insulin (insulin in your body before eating) levels 16% lower than non-consumers. The study also found that cannabis consumers had 17% lower insulin resistance levels and lower average waist circumferences.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Next time, before you hit the gym, try getting high first. If that&rsquo;s not your thing, then by all means don&rsquo;t do it. But if you are looking to see how marijuana affects your workout, give it a try. Scientific studies suggest it could help you out!</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/does-marijuana-help-you-exercise/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com</a></div> Larry OG Buds - Indica http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/larry-og-buds-indica <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/larry-og-1-greenworks-nugs-larry-og-weed-larryog-cannabis-thcfinder-thcf-0109xx34d.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="larry-og-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/larry-og-1-greenworks-nugs-larry-og-weed-larryog-cannabis-thcfinder-thcf-0109xx34d.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3372_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="larry-og-1" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3372_1.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3372_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="larry-og-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3372_0.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3372_15.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="larry-og-weed.-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3372_15.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/larry_og" target="_blank">Larry OG - Indica</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Larry OG Kush by the Cali Connection Marijuana Seedbank.

Doctors have the sole purpose of being around to help the patients in their care, not make them miserable and make them choose between medicines. If there doesn&#39;t seem to be a dangerous side effect, then the patient should have access to what works. Not what doctors like to prescribe.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> I recently read an article about a man named Christopher*, a man in his 50s. This man is married, does volunteer work in the community, and runs his own business. None of these things are really expected of stoners it seems but Christopher seems to be managing pretty well... With the exception of his terrible migraines and the insomnia that has plagued him since he was a kid. These two issues combined make for a miserable lifestyle that has included taking Norco, a hydrocodone/acetaminophen combination that is far stronger than Excedrin or Tylenol with codeine. Christopher gets 15 pills per refill, which ends up giving him about seven doses of medicine. In addition to the pain killers for the migraines, Christopher has also been recommended a prescription for medical marijuana from a naturopath.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Christopher gets both medicines in the correct way, through the channels that are dictated by the law. However, the doctor that prescribes the Norco made Christopher sign an agreement, saying that if he tested positive for THC, he would lose his prescription. At the time, marijuana wasn&#39;t even a thought in Christopher&#39;s mind so he signed the paper. About six months later, a friend recommended that Christopher replace his no longer working Ambien prescription. Christopher gave it a shot, in hopes that the plant would help him sleep. It did. So Christopher continued to smoke in order to help him get to sleep at night.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> But earlier this year, Christopher&#39;s Norco prescriber asked that he submit to a urine test. Christopher immediately stopped smoking and continued with his plans, leaving for 2.5 weeks before the test in hopes that the cannabis would have left the system. However, when he returned and purchased an at home test, it came back positive for THC. For the next two month, Christopher survived off of stocked up pills and took more of the at home drug tests. Every time he took one, he failed. But because of a lack of supply in the prescription drugs, he had to go back for the test. Instead of the cannabis, Christopher had been taking shots of rum before bed in order to knock himself out but it definitely wasn&#39;t working, especially when compared to the marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Christopher went back to the doctor about getting a refill and even though he hadn&#39;t ingested any marijuana in two months, he still failed the test and the doctor refused to refill the prescription. In his absolute frustration, Christopher went back to using the cannabis to help him sleep. &quot;I gave up on trying to meet what seems to be an impossibly high standard,&quot; Christopher said. He recently submitted another urine sample, with urine that didn&#39;t belong to him. The results are still being anticipated. In the meantime, Christopher has had to resort to prescription sharing, something that is definitely illegal. In order to make himself feel better, he has to take pills from friends and family, again resorting to illegal activity since doctors can&#39;t seem to help people the way that they&#39;re supposed to.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Patients everywhere need to be aware of this treatment. Just because someone is recommended medical marijuana doesn&#39;t mean that they should be denied other prescriptions. Issues like this need to be addressed immediately. Otherwise, other patients will experience the same mistreatment that Christopher is dealing with. &quot;This is just not a choice that people should have to be making,&quot; Christopher said.</div> Alien OG Bubba nugs - Hybrid http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/alien-og-bubba-nugs-hybrid <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/aogb-greenworks-nugs-alien-og-bubba-aogb-aogb-thcfinder-thcf-001986g.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="alien-og-bubba-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/aogb-greenworks-nugs-alien-og-bubba-aogb-aogb-thcfinder-thcf-001986g.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_9.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="alien-og-bubba-1" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_9.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_8.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="alien-og-bubba-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_8.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_7.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="alien-og-bubba-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_7267_7.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><strong><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/hybrid/alien_og_bubba" target="_blank"><span style="color:#ff0000;">Alien OG Bubba - Hybrid</span></a></span></strong><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"></span></span></p> CO Edible Company Gets Shut Down http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/co-edible-company-gets-shut-down <div style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="co-edible-company-gets-shut-down" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/co-edible-company-get-shut-down-thcc-thcfinder-01919sx.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 216px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></div> <div> Most know about the current war raging between state officials and the use of cannabis infused food. The edible market has been hurting since reports started surfacing that people were really losing their minds when ingesting edibles. Some claim that the edibles themselves are the culprit and not underlying mental issues but that&#39;s besides the point... For now at least. The war on edibles has taken a shifty turn with the closing of Denver&#39;s At Home Baked, an edible manufacturing company located in Colorado.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The Denver Department of Environmental Health put out a recall on products made by At Home Baked on July 17th due to what they called a possible contamination. At Home Baked was using a machine to make their water hash that helped to make the marijuana edibles more smooth, with a better consistency and taste in the end result. But the Department didn&#39;t see it as a good thing and instead, shut the business down. No one got sick from eating the edibles, an important fact that should be noted, and it is suspected that the shutdown was based on a someone&#39;s personal opinion (AKA the war on edibles) rather than on something factual and important.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Co-owner A.J. Ashkar stated to the Cannabist; &quot;We&rsquo;re really frustrated with the entire situation,&rdquo; said A.J. Ashkar, the co-owner of At Home Baked who is known in the Denver marijuana industry as A.J. Hashman. &ldquo;They came in and the machine which we were utilizing to make water hash was not a food-safe machine. Food-safe machines to make water hash do not exist. They deemed the water hash that we were making unfit for human consumption even though nobody has gotten sick from our hash.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The products of the company were recalled when there was a food service safety inspection, even though no one has suffered ill effects from the products. The device that the company was using was basically a modified washing machine that was solely used to product the water hash for the edibles. Even though the machine was not being used for anything else, the Department still said that it wasn&#39;t fit for human consumption. But there is no machine on the market that is able to create water hash that is deemed &quot;food safe&quot;... So what exactly are these companies supposed to use if not these modified washing machines?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Since the war on edibles is just going to get worse (I mean really, did we all think that it was going to be so easy?), expect to see more edible making companies having problems with the Department of Health (and not just in Colorado). Edibles, while far more potent than smoking, are a great source of medicine for patients who can&#39;t smoke or vape. They are easy to transport, easy to eat, and subtle. By targeting edible companies, the government and it&#39;s officials are just targeting sick people and trying to make more money off of them, causing our positive industry to grind to a halt.</div> Would you roll around in this Truck? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/would-you-roll-around-in-this-truck <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/would-you-roll-around-in-this-weed-mobile-truck-thcfinder.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="would-you-roll-in-this-truck" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/would-you-roll-around-in-this-weed-mobile-truck-thcfinder.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 337px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Make Marijuana Butter, Oil Or Milk With Your Marijuana Plant Trim http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/make-marijuana-butter-oil-or-milk-with-your-marijuana-plant-trim <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">Most of the marijuana recipes require marijuana butter instead of normal butter. It is very easy to make and it can be used as normal butter. Another advantage is that it can also be made of marijuana leaves. Especially the small leaves close to the flowers contain a lot of resin.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">In order to make the THC in marijuana active it has to be heated in some way. Normally it is done by smoking it but it can also be eaten. THC resolves in fat, not in water. So it&rsquo;s important to use fat if you&rsquo;re cooking with marijuana. Oil, milk and butter are perfect to resolve THC and are used in many recipes. Simply replace the normal butter or oil with the prepared one.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">Eating cannabis is different from smoking. In the end the effects are the same but when you smoke marijuana the effects are noticeable gradually. When eating marijuana the effects take some time to be noticeable but it comes suddenly. So try a little bit and wait some time before taking more because it might take up to 45 minutes before you feel anything&hellip;&nbsp;Download my&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ilgm-deals.com/partners/partner.php?id=129&amp;url=http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/free-download-marijuana-grow-bible" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);" target="_blank">free marijuana grow bible</a>&nbsp;and learn more about what to do with your marijuana plant trim.</span></span></p> <h4 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 21px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 1.1em; font-weight: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">-Marijuana butter</span></span></h4> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">3,5 oz (100 grams) of butter<br /> 3,5 fl oz (100 ml) of water<br /> 3,5 oz (100 grams) of ground&nbsp;leaves or 0.2 ounce (5 grams) of grinded weed</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">Heat the water and the butter together in a sauce pan.
