How a Federal Raid, a Brutal Home Invasion & Over-Regulation Sunk Southern Oregon’s Best-Known Grower
Everybody in southern Oregon knew James Bowman. That was the problem.
A lifelong grower who’d been cultivating cannabis in multiple states since he was 16, the 57-year-old Bowman and his “High Hopes Farms,” in unincorporated Applegate in Jackson County, boasted of serving more medical marijuana patients than any other cannabis farm in Oregon.
He’d been growing there for 11 years, just a few years after Oregon legalized medical cannabis. Maybe he was right. Either way, that reputation was one big reason why Bowman was raided in 2012 by federal agents. Feds seized his entire 800-plant crop and 400 pounds of processed cannabis, the supply intended for 200 Oregon medical marijuana patients.
Stoned Science: Interactions Between THC and CBD
Often when people smoke marijuana, all of the credit for the high is given to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but this isn’t the whole story. Through previous discussions you might recall that cannabidiol (CBD), alone, does not get you high. While this is true, there are some important interactions to consider.
Does CBD affect the high that THC provides and how does it do so?
Our bodies are broken up into many systems (i.e. cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, etc.), but one important system that doesn’t get much attention is the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
As you may have guessed, our ECS interacts with cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD. But it is more involved than you might imagine. The ECS is imperative to the body’s normal functioning—assisting in the regulation of pain and hunger to name a few.

Vanilla Kush is an incredible new Indica-dominant strain and is one of the most fragrant, full-flavored and potent plants that Barneys Farm has ever offered. Vanilla Kush genetics come from Kashmir and Afghan. The intense aromas from large, dense colas %u2013heavily speckled with red and gold trichromes %u2013 bring to mind wild vanilla and lavender, accented with lemon and orange peel. Once lit, the floral and herbal aromas become more concentrated and the smoke offers sweet flavors. Outdoor harvest time is the end of September. The THC is strong of 22%. The long lasting high allows the mind to relax and eases muscle tension.
