Colorado Marijuana Remains Untested For Chemicals

marijuana-testing-in-coloradoOne of the expected benefits of having marijuana sold in stores is the belief that the quality will be outstanding. Some stoners that buy weed from street dealers know that the buds can sometimes be contaminated with mold, mildew, mite eggs, and possibly even the sour taste of a smell-masking agent that seeped in to the weed while in transit. But while Washington state has been testing their marijuana for contaminants for the last six months, Colorado hasn’t been. Washington marijuana enforcement could explain most of the details of the state testing, while Colorado’s couldn’t even inform USA Today of potency test results. 
The rocky mountain state has been struggling to define the criteria for testing contaminated marijuana and as of right now, there is only potency tests of marijuana products. As said above, even those results are somewhat iffy. “We made the decision from the beginning this was going to be an open and transparent system,” Washington State Liquor Board Spokesperson Brian Smith said. “We made it available so all of the people who really wanted this could have access to it pretty regularly.” If a tourist heading to Washington wants to know specifics of the marijuana business in the state, they can visit the website and find all sorts of information from the enforcement of the laws to the names of the edibles that are being sold. 
Colorado hopes to begin their testing of contaminated marijuana in early 2015. State officials are still working on implementing their testing structure. It also remains unknown if the state will allow the results of these tests to be published on their website. This includes the results of how much of the cannabis in Colorado is contaminated. “We need to highlight that,” Senator Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) said. “I think it’s our job to make that more important and I appreciate your work in making it more important too.” Hopes remain high that the marijuana in Colorado isn’t too shifty when it comes to contaminants.


Aspen Launches Marijuana Education Program For Tourists

Those that are flocking to Colorado and Washington to experience legal weed sometimes have never smoked a joint before in their lives. Not only that but edibles effect people far differently, depending on who you are. The sherifs in Aspen, Colorado are working on a solution to this problem however. They are implementing an educational program geared towards the skiers and snowboarders that crowd the area during the winter. This new program starts right when visitors get off of the plane, as the airport has added a brochure on marijuana legalization in the state. 
Pat Bingham, a spokesperson for the airport in Aspen, says “It’s the brochure rack and it has information on everything from trails on the ski areas to a day at the Aspen Club and now, the local guide to retail marijuana.” As of right now, the brochure doesn’t seem to be that popular but the busy season hasn’t started yet. The brochure contains the most frequently asked questions regarding the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, including how much tourists are allowed to consume, where you can consume it, and how long different highs take to set it. 
Joe DiSalvo is the sherif in Aspen and formed a coalition in 2012 with the hospital, school district, and the business community to push a heavy education program about pot. “When the legalization of marijuana happened, we all agreed that while we may not agree with it, we agree that we have to roll this out real responsibly with a heavy, heavy, heavy educational campaign,” DiSalvo says. The brochure is the coalitions first step towards educating people on marijuana when they come to Colorado. 
The goal of the group is to make sure that there are as many brochures as possible circulating the tourists hands this busy season. With many hotels in the area carrying the informational packets, there are also lodges, stores, and other public buildings that are stocking up to educate the people.

Can Consuming Marijuana Help Cure An Alcohol Hangover?

alcohol-and-mjCan Marijuana Help Get Rid Of That Alcohol Hangover?
Did you booze it up at a New Year’s party last night? Maybe you started with one drink. One drink became two drinks. Two drinks became many drinks, and so on. Hopefully you didn’t blackout, and whether you did or didn’t, hopefully you didn’t do anything you will regret because you drank too much. How do you feel today? Stomach a little queasy? Head hurt? If so, you are in the middle of a battle with an alcohol induced hangover.
A couple of years ago I wrote an article asking if marijuana could help cure a hangover, and I thought it would be worth revisiting this New Year’s Day. There’s always a spike in traffic to that article this time of year, and the reason for the spike is obvious. Let’s start by looking at what an alcohol hangover is, per the Mayo Clinic:
Alcohol causes your body to produce more urine. In turn, urinating more than usual can lead to dehydration — often indicated by thirst, dizziness and lightheadedness.
Alcohol triggers an inflammatory response from your immune system. Your immune system may trigger certain agents that commonly produce physical symptoms, such as an inability to concentrate, memory problems, decreased appetite and loss of interest in usual activities.
Alcohol irritates the lining of your stomach. Alcohol increases the production of stomach acid and delays stomach emptying. Any of these factors can cause abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting.
Alcohol causes your blood vessels to expand, which can lead to headaches.
There’s only one thing on the list above that marijuana doesn’t help – dehydration. To fix that you need to consume as much fluid as possible to replenish your body and flush out the toxins that are ravaging your body from the inside out. But, marijuana can help with everything else found above. Marijuana is great at treating neuroinflammation. Marijuana will help increase your appetite too. It is well known that marijuana can help treat nausea, which is one of the most common symptoms of an alcohol hangover. The other most common symptom is a headache, which marijuana can also help.
Probably the best thing that marijuana can help with is tolerating the hangover itself. Consuming marijuana will relax you, and provide euphoria, which will help you deal better with the hangover while fluids and cannabis work their magic. If you have a savage hangover, then you are likely learning the hard way why marijuana is safer than alcohol. Hopefully you don’t drink anymore in the future, but if you do, make sure to have some marijuana ready the next day to help you get over the lame after effects!


Vanilla Kush (Indica)

Category: Nugs | Posted on Thu, January, 1st 2015 by THCFinder





Vanilla Kush - Indica

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 heavily speckled with red and gold trichromes  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.
