Colorado Issues New Marijuana Edible Rules

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
co-issues-new-mj-edible-rulesMarijuana edibles are nothing new. They have been around for decades, most commonly in the form of brownies and cookies. Marijuana edibles, if prepared properly, can be much stronger than marijuana in flower form. Whereas marijuana consumed in smoke or vapor form goes into your nervous system via the lungs, eaten marijuana goes into your blood stream via the digestive process. That’s why the high from eating marijuana can last so long, and can be felt throughout your entire body. Veteran marijuana consumers know this, and either take it easy on edibles, or if they are like me, prepare ahead of time for a mega-high.
 
I don’t like weak edibles. I have never consumed an edible that was ‘too strong.’ However, I am willing to recognize that not everyone is like me. A lot of people are either trying marijuana for the first time right now, or are trying marijuana again after a very long break. People that fit into those two categories should proceed with caution when consuming marijuana, in edible form or smoke or vapor. Unfortunately some people have tried to go from zero to hero on edibles in Colorado, which has resulted in some unfavorable media coverage for the industry.
 
New rules out in Colorado surrounding marijuana edibles will hopefully calm the media down and give opponents like Kevin Sabet less to talk about. The new rules include:
 
Products still have a 100 mg THC limit, but they have to be able to be separated into 10 mg or less servings.
 
Manufacturers have to put single serving edibles into child-resistant packages before shipping, instead of relying on retailers to do so.
 
Liquid items also have to be in similar packaging, with serving sizes clearly displayed.
 
Changes will become effective on November 1st after public comment has occurred. Even more changes may happen after public input. While I personally think that the individual consumer has a lot of responsibility to know what they are consuming, I don’t see the rule changes having that much affect on things and don’t think they will be a problem for the industry. I’m hopeful that now if a rookie eats too much, they can no longer play dumb and act like it wasn’t their fault that they got too high and acted the fool, and then try to blame it on an industry that is doing everything it can to be responsible.

A Matter Of Life And Death

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
a-matter-of-life-and-death-cannabis
Children suffering with seizure disorders are dealt a rough hand. They cannot develop mentally due to the overwhelming amount of seizures they have, their speech is halted, and sometimes, the parents are informed that their child is going to die. Of course parents aren't going to just stand by and let their child die because the doctors can't figure their shit out and that's exactly what Cherie did after she heard that her two year old daughter Abbey might not survive her diagnosed CDKL5, a disorder that causes violent seizing, mental, and physical disabilities.
 
When doctors told Cherie that Abbey wasn't going to live, the caring moth started researching everywhere. She eventually stumbled upon the Facebook pages dedicated to parents that appreciated the effects of healing cannabis oil. The oil, Cherie read, was a great alternative to legal, yet ineffective, medicines given out by doctors. Cherie read through the pages, deciding that this was indeed a treatment option that she wanted her daughter to pursue.
 
Upon making her choice to treat her daughter with the oil, Cherie smuggled a vial of the oil in to Abbey's hospital room and poured a designated amount in to the feeding tube that her daughter ate through, washed the oil down, and waited. Immediately the effects were apparent. The seizures began to decrease and the child's doctors were seeing improvements on the brain scans they were doing. The doctors were amazed.
 
Unfortunately, the supply of medical cannabis available for Abbey was limited as her supplier was recently raided after they had written to the ACT Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, about the amazing recovery of this young girl. So basically, in return for saving a life, the person helping was punished. Gallagher was the one who tipped off the police, not even giving the curing plant the time of day.
 
Although suppliers aren't safe, mothers refuse to let their children suffer for long. Banding together, there are many who say that they will grow their own cannabis and make the oils themselves if necessary. When fighting for their child's life, they will try whatever they can to save them. In Abbey's case, the supply of cannabis oil that her mother has saved is running low and the prognosis doesn't look good. If the oil supply is not found, Abbey will most likely revert back to having seizure filled days and the disorder may eventually kill her. Children deserve a chance at every medicine, especially one that works as well as cannabis does.

Canna-bacon Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, August, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
canna-bacon-recipe
I'm not one of those people that really loves bacon... But I acknowledge the stoner love of this greasy food. Potheads love bacon and I've been seeing a lot of bacon related posts pop up on social media so I wanted to share this cannabis bacon recipe with you all. Get the best of your weed and the best of bacon in one snack. It's easy to prepare and you'll be feasting on bacon in a short while. You can also add this treat to sandwiches as an added boost of awesome!
 
What You'll Need:
1 tbsp cannabis flour
24 toothpicks
12 strips thick-sliced Canadian bacon
1 cup diced cantaloupe (optional)
 
Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees F and placing the bacon well spaced on a cookie sheet. Take your flour and shake it over the bacon that is now laid out. You can be as stingy or as generous as you want but for the stronger effects, you should add a good amount of flour to each strip. Place the strips in the oven on the sheet and cook them until the bacon starts to crisp on top. Take the sheet out and flip the strips over so that the other side can cook as well and put them back in the oven.
 
Degrease the bacon with a paper towel once you've gotten the crispiness that you need. The next part of this is totally optional, especially since you may end up saving some of the bacon to add to other dishes later. But if you want, you can take the strips and wrap them around a cube of cantaloupe, securing the creation with a tooth pick. If you're planning on storing the bacon, just stick it in the fridge for a short while. Then, you're ready to enjoy your medicated canna-bacon!
