Path clears for Hawaii's first medical marijuana dispensary
HONOLULU -- Dispensary sales ofin Hawaii are beginning after patients waited 17 years for a legal way to purchase the drug.
The state Department of Health on Tuesday gave Maui Wellness Group, LLC dba Maui Grown Therapies the "green light" to begin selling medical marijuana to registered patients and their caregivers, CBS affiliate KGMB-TV reports.
The station adds that registered patients and caregivers can purchase up to 4 ounces of medical marijuana during a 15 consecutive day period and purchase a maximum of 8 ounces over a 30 consecutive day period.
God Bud (Indica)
The memorably-named God Bud rose from underground fame in Canada's medical pot community to international acclaim when BC Bud Depot debuted it as a commercial strain in 2004. The heavy yields and strong effect have made BC God Bud an indica worthy of praise. BC God Bud delivers a musky, tropical flavor with herbal edges and hints of lavender, berry, and pine. The high is well balanced, a slight creeper with long-lasting effects, starting with a calm, pleasant feeling and increasing to a more surreal, nearly hallucinogenic buzz.
Homeless People Used as ‘Guinea Pigs’ to Test Synthetic Marijuana
“Synthetic marijuana” is the catch-all term used to describe plant material dosed with some kind of chemical concoction, ingestion of which has some kind of psychoactive effect on the user.
Vague? Absolutely. Potentially hazardous, a bad idea and a strong argument for legalization of actual marijuana? Right all around—but in the meantime, the market inefficiency presented by human beings’ universal demand for cannabis coupled with a lack of access means there will always be room for unscrupulous sellers of spurious chemical cocktails to make a profit.
At the same time, drug sellers are like any other legitimate merchant: They need repeat customers. They also need, if not quality-control exactly, some kind of data on their product.
Study Shows Nearly Half of CBD Users Stop Taking Traditional Meds
A new survey, the largest to date, on cannabidiol (CBD) suggests that a growing number of patients are finding more relief from CBD than from traditional pharmaceuticals and they’re acting on this good news—especially the women.
Conducted by the Brightfield Group and HelloMD and covering 2,400 of HelloMD’s community of 150,000 members, the survey found that 55 percent of CBD users were women, while men preferred THC-dominant products.
The most common reasons people used CBD, according to Dr. Perry Solomon, the chief medical officer of HelloMD, were to treat insomnia, depression, anxiety and joint pain.
“We are seeing an exponential rise in the interest of CBD products from our patient community—particularly among women,” said Solomon. “While we still have much to learn about CBD, we cannot ignore this one fact; the majority of those using CBD products today receive great benefit. This has the potential for far-reaching consequences.”
