Strawberry Kush - Indica

Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high

Colorado; One Year Mark

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, January, 7th 2015 by THCFinder
colorado-one-year-markJanuary 1st will mark the one year anniversary of legal marijuana in the state of Colorado. They have been working extremely hard to regulate the sale and taxation of marijuana over the course of the year and the sales have constantly been through the roof. People lined up for blocks on the first day in order to get their hands on some of the legal weed. There have been plenty of ups and downs of the last year but the state is standing strong, even after neighboring states Oklahoma and Nebraska sued Colorado, hoping that the US Supreme Court will rule that legalized recreational cannabis is unconstitutional since it effects the neighboring states. 
 
 
“I think myself and almost every elected official in the state of Colorado, we didn’t want to be the social laboratory but our voters passed it by a large margin - 55 to 45,” states John Hickenlooper, the governor of Colorado and someone who actually opposes marijuana legalization. “And we accept that this is going to be one of the great social experiments of the next 50 years.” 
 
 
The state of Colorado has more than 800 outlets that allow the sale of marijuana. In Denver, there are more weed stores than Starbucks. But the state is seeing the benefits of such heavy marijuana sales. The tax revenue in the first nine months of legalization made the state $43 million in taxes. Local municipalities collected millions more than that. Taxing cannabis has proven to be extremely beneficial for the state, even though there have been issues like the edible regulation and dosing. 
 
 
Another low point of the Colorado legal weed trade is the fact that testing has been tough. Genifer Murray, the founder of Cannalabs, says that she’s found ecoli, mildew, and mold in some of the strains that she’s tested in her lab. It is extremely important that the strains coming out of the shops are the highest of quality. But there are some growers out there that happen to be producing less than desirable products.
 
 
But while the lows have been low, the highs are pretty high as well. The Colorado symphony made pot pay, raising money with bring-your-own-bud parties. The taxes from the plant are still making bank and the people keep visiting the state in order to get a glimpse at one of the most successful marijuana business states. All in all, Colorado is doing pretty well.

The Road To Marijuana Acceptance

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, January, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
road-mmj-acceptanceEven though people have been using marijuana for many different purposes for thousands of years, President Nixon still decided to start the war on drugs in 1970, signing the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act, which includes the Controlled Substances Act, as part of the “war”. Congress then proceeded to mark cannabis as a Schedule 1 substance, saying that it has a high potential for abuse, no medical use, and no safety standards in medically supervised treatments. So the government made cannabis and everything to do with it illegal. 
 
 
Starting in 1996 in California, people began to fight back. When the sunny west coast state passed the Compassionate Use Act Initiative, it amended the California Constitution. More states followed California’s move, allowing the use of medical marijuana. Now, there are 23 states that allow patients to ingest, cultivate, and purchase marijuana. Then, in 2012, Colorado and Washington took the next step and made marijuana fully legal in their states, meaning anyone over the age of 21 could possess the plant and ingest it in their homes. 2014 brought more changes in the states, with Alaska, Oregon, and Washington DC legalizing recreational marijuana as well. 
 
 
Unfortunately for states, the federal government still interfered with the laws that were passed. Even after a series of changes to the Controlled Substance Act, saying that the states could enforce their own laws, there were still issues with federal officials butting their heads in to marijuana businesses. Raids were at an all time high and even those people who were allowed to use marijuana according to state law were worried for their legal safety. But on October 28, 2014, the Department of Justice issued a memorandum saying that Native American tribes will be permitted to grow and sell marijuana on their land. This includes tribes that are located in illegal states. The tribes are required to put forth a strict regulatory system that will protect federal priorities, like the distribution of the plant to minors. 
 
 
Following the passing of that memorandum, December 14, 2014 brought more change with Congress passing the 2014 Continuing Resolution Omnibus spending bill. It actually prevents the Department of Justice, which includes the FBI and DEA, from interfering with medical marijuana laws. The DOJ is also prohibited from using any federal funds to prevent states from creating medical marijuana structures that include cultivation, distribution, and consumption of medical marijuana.

Granddaddy Purple - Indica

Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because it%u2019s such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.

Oncologists In India: Lift Ban On Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
lift-ban-mmjMarijuana is medicine, whether it be in the United States, India, or any other part of the world. That’s a fact that has been backed up by a mountain of scientific evidence and countless personal testimonies by suffering patients. Anyone who claims that marijuana is not medicine needs to have their head checked. More and more states in America are realizing that marijuana is an effect for of medicine, and many other nations are starting to realize it to. One of those nations is India, where leading oncologists are lobbying the government to allow medical marijuana. Per the Times of India:
 
Marijuana or ganja may be frowned upon as a banned recreational drug, but could offer an effective cure for cancer, say top oncologists of Bengaluru. They have now decided to lobby with the Centre to lift the ban on cannabis to allow them to explore the medicinal uses of the plant.
 
They point out that the US allows its use for medicinal purposes, following several validations of the plant’s derivatives giving a healing touch to cancer patients.
 
Their interest in cannabis research was stirred up during recent debates on tobacco farming. “We are encouraging cultivation of tobacco that causes various types of cancer. At the other end, we are ignoring the medicinal properties of a plant that can help cancer patients. We are not even able to take up research as procurement of the plant is illegal in India, whereas oncologists in 21 states of the US are prescribing derivatives of cannabis for cancer treatment,” Dr Vishal Rao, surgical oncologist, HCG, told TOI.
 
I always feel that banning medical marijuana research is proof in itself that marijuana is medicine. If opponents truly felt that the opposite was true, they would allow research to be conducted in order to debunk claims by supporters. However, they know that research will unlock the truth, and that the only debunking that will occur is the debunking of reefer madness. Fortunately, there is more than enough research already out there which creates enough momentum that medical marijuana research is inevitable whether opponents like it or not.
