Home Testing for THC Potency Is a Viable Option
As anyone with even rudimentary experience using cannabis can tell you, potency can vary. A lot. Sometimes that can be half the fun—learning just what effects a new strain will have and how strongly you’ll experience them.
But if you’re a medical marijuana patient, cannabinoid potency can be a very important factor in your therapy. Cannabis from a MMJ dispensary, if you have access to one, will often be laboratory tested. The results from these analyses can help guide a patient in selecting a strain with the right cannabinoid potency and ratio to give the desired effect.
If you’re growing your own herb, or getting it from a source that hasn’t tested it, there are options available for you to determine its potency. If you live in a state that has legal weed, there may be a commercial lab near you that performs potency, contamination and other tests on samples you provide to them. But lab tests can be costly, running about $40 or more for each potency analysis.
Here's Why Puerto Rico Is the Newest Hot Pot Travel Spot
For many people, Puerto Rico, nicknamed, “The Island of Enchantment,” brings to mind images of sunny beaches, surf and the beauty of El Yunque—the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Parks system. You’re probably not thinking about weed.
One might assume all the good ganja in the Caribbean is in Jamaica, but that would be a mistake. Puerto Ricans love their marijuana, and it doesn’t seem hard to find good bud at decent prices, at least in San Juan.
Puerto Ricans enjoy weed so much that their 4/20 celebrations, events and political rallies spanned four days this year. From the west side of the island to the capital, residents came out en masse to enjoy, educate and fight for access to everyone’s favorite plant. Some of us in the States could use their energy and dedication to the cause as an inspiration.
Despite its aggressive name, AK-47 has many peaceful tendencies. First bred in 1992, the name suggests the power packed in its dark, resinous, compact buds that bristle with red hairs and glistening trichomes. AK-47 has a spiced aroma bordering on skunk, with a hint of sandalwood, but tastes sweeter and more floral than the smell would lead one to expect. The AK-47 buzz is immediate and long lasting with an alert but mellow cerebral effect. Lab tests have rated the THC content at over 20 percent, making it a "one hit wonder" for many smokers. This variety can be a little spacey, but is great for playing and listening to music, or other social activities. AK-47 helped put Serious Seeds on the map with a 2nd place finish in the hydroponics competition and a 3rd place in the overall category at the 1995 Cannabis Cup in the Netherlands.
Nevada Can Begin To Sell Recreational Marijuana Early
Licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in good standing with the state of Nevada can begin selling marijuana for recreational purposes as early as July 1, the state tax board voted Monday.
The Nevada Tax Commission voted 6-1 to approve temporary licenses for shops that qualify so sales can begin months before the Jan. 1 deadline for the commission to draft its rules. These temporary licenses will expire on Jan. 1, giving the state Department of Taxation time to test the regulations before the program goes into full effect in 2018
