Cannabis can be great for smoking but it can also be great for assisting with skin problems like eczema, severe dry skin, and uneven skin tone. While some people have a lot of trouble finding these products, others have been generous enough to share their methods on the web, providing us with a very basic recipe that pretty much anyone can make! The following recipe will give you a great cannabalm that will improve your skin and leave you feeling refreshed!
 
What You'll Need;
1.0oz liquid vegetable glycerin
.3oz essential oil of your preference
24.0 oz distilled H2O
1.2oz cosmetic grade stearic acid
1.2oz emusifying wax
.3oz germaben
4.0oz strong cannabis oil or fat
Small amount of menthol crystals (optional but will do a sunburn wonders if applied!)
 
Take all of the ingredients with the exception of the menthol crystals (if you choose to add them) and the essential oils and put them in to a double boiler that you have set up (remember the double boiler?). Whisk them together until they're blended together very well. The mixture should be creamy in texture. Once everything is blended, you can add in the last two ingredients if you want to. While the substance is still warm, pour it in to bottles. This recipe will give you 32oz of lotion. Trust me, using this on your skin will keep you moisturized, fresh smelling, and free of the dangerous chemicals that some lotion companies use!

Could medical marijuana be a 7-year-old's cure?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-7-year-olds-curePITTSFORD, Vt. —A Vermont mother believes medical marijuana could be the remedy her daughter, who suffers from epilepsy, needs to stop seizing.
 
Seven-year-old Lexi’s beaming smile suggests she is just like every other little girl.
“She was born fine,” said mother, Allison Rodgers. “She was born the day before her due date and there were no issues.”
 
But at 18 months, things changed. Allison found Lexi with a 103-degree fever. She was suffering from a grand mal seizure.
 
More than a half-decade later, doctors still are not sure exactly what triggers her seizures.
 
“Every specialist we see is completely baffled and sends us on to another one,” Allison said.
 
Lexi has never had another grand mal seizure, but doctors said she is constantly seizing while she sleeps. She has lost her ability to speak and functions at the cognitive level of a 2-year-old, Allison said.
 
Lexi takes three different medications and the nighttime seizures have not stopped.
 
That’s led Allison to explore other options. Talking with parents across the country, she discovered the Realm of Caring, a Colorado-based dispensary claiming to have developed a marijuana strain benefiting children with epilepsy.
 
WPTZ was there when the Realm of Caring’s founders visited the University of Vermont in November 2013. In that talk, one of the strain’s creators, Josh Stanley, said it has a nearly 90 percent effective rate in epileptic children.
 
“She’s not getting high on it. That's the main key. She's not getting high,” Allison said.
 
This type of marijuana is not smoked. Instead, droppers filled with the plant’s oil are put in food. The strain also does not make children high, as the psychoactive part of the cannabis, THC, is low.
 
Allison is not giving the strain to her daughter, but she would like to. She hopes some Vermont dispensaries engineer something similar. Federal law prohibits the transfer of marijuana or plant seeds across state lines.
 
“She's been on all these other medications. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work,” Allison said. “It's just something else we've tried for her.”
 
“We are talking to several parents in the state at this point,” said Shayne Lynn, executive director at Champlain Valley Dispensary in Burlington. Lynn runs a second medical marijuana dispensary in Brattleboro.
 
He said he will not dispense to children, pointing to a federal Department of Justice memo stating the first priority in the department’s marijuana enforcement initiative is to prevent “the distribution of marijuana to minors.”

Colorado Lawmakers Approve First Cannabis Banking System In The World

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
co-bank-systemWe recently posted that Colorado lawmakers shot down marijuana banking rules. We added ‘for now’ to the title, because we felt that marijuana banking rules in Colorado was far from a dead issue. It didn’t take long for the issue to come up again in the Colorado Legislature, and we here at the ICBC are happy to say that this time banking rules were approved.
 
Per the Huffington Post:
 
“The bill approved Wednesday would allow marijuana businesses to pool money in cooperative s, but the co-ops would on take effect if the U.S. Federal Reserve agrees to allow them to do things like accept credit cards or checks.
 
Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper supports the pot bank plan and is expected to sign it into law, though a spokesman said Wednesday the governor had yet to review the final language.”
 
This is a big thing for not only members of the Colorado cannabis industry, but members of the industry throughout the United States and the rest of the world. No other country has a banking system dedicated to the marijuana industry. We’re hopeful that when the banking industry (and federal lawmakers) see how well this works, that national reform will be soon to follow.
 
There are still some questions that need to be answered. The first of which is ‘how will this work?’ It looks great on paper, and is certainly better than nothing, but how will it work out in reality? Also, how will the federal government react to this bill if/when it’s signed into law? How do the federal guidelines affect the Colorado rules, if at all? Only time will tell, but it is great to see legislators take up this very important issue. At our conference in September, we will have a panel devoted to banking. Stay tuned as more states make similar moves and we continue to work at the federal level to bring about real banking reform.
