Green Friday

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
green-friday-thcMarijuana is legal in a few states now, showing how popular this plant has become. With votes stacking up in favor of the weed, people are beginning to wonder what effect the pot shops will have on events such as Black Friday, the most popular shopping day of the year. Considering that Black Friday can actually be dangerous (more dangerous than marijuana, actually, with some people actually dying in order to get that $300 flat screen TV), those that work in the marijuana shops in legal states are hoping to catch some of that shopper craziness. 
 
 
Especially in Denver, it will be the first holiday season that cannabis has been legal. Many shops have begun to advertise sales for the upcoming “Green Friday”, working on drawing more customers in to get nice and stoned before going off to Wal-Mart or the mall to get Christmas presents. The holidays are known for creating a deep sense of depression, unfortunately, and hopefully those that indulge in a little extra green this year will have a happier few months. At the Grass Station in Denver, owner Ryan Fox has high expectations, no pun intended. “Now we’ve got the legal means for people to give marijuana as a gift, and that’s never really been something that was feasible in the past.” Fox’s plans for Green Friday? Sell ounces of cannabis for a mere $50 to the first 16 customers through the door on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This price is five time cheaper than what the market currently sits at.
 
 
Fox, who sold medical marijuana before opening his recreational shop after the laws passed, says that he noticed that the largest amount of sales came from on Thanksgiving or close to it. As a holiday that’s mostly based around consuming food, this makes sense that stoners would like to stock up on bud for such a pigging-out holiday. Not only that but the ability to now give marijuana as a gift is sure to resonate with a good amount of people. What better to get your best friend than a big jar of weed to smoke together while you laugh at silly Christmas movies? 
 
 
“Christmas sales, day after Thanksgiving sales, your family is in town and you need help dealing with that sales?” Says Sam Kamin, a law professor at the University of Denver. “None of that would surprise me now that the industry has come out in to the open. I would expect to see the industry behaving like any others to the extend that it can.” Even though the cannabis market is new, the people involved are expecting record sales this coming Friday.

LA Confidential - Indica

LA Confidential is a commercial seed strain that captures the genetics of OG Kush. An Afghan strain grown from clones, OG Kush first became popular in the Los Angeles market in the 1990s, and then became world famous as California rappers like Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill name-checked it in their songs. OG Kush offers a hash-like experience from reefer: a resinous smoke, deep and spicy-sweet like nutmeg, that draws the smoker into a lush, slightly trippy dreamland. While "Authentic OG Kush" may be hard to find if you're not a rap star, DNA's LA Confidential brings the secrets of this celebrity smoke to the market.

Why Stoners Should Love E-Cigs

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 26th 2014 by THCFinder
why-stoners-should-love-e-cigsVapes and e-cigarettes are the new rage. So much so that the Oxford Dictionary made “vaping” the word of the year. Almost everywhere you go, you see people holding on to these crazy looking electronic cigarettes. With thousands of flavors to choose from, these oil filled mechanisms are incredibly popular in culture today. But since most of the time, the oil contains nicotine, why should stoners be so amped on the social acceptance of electronic cigarettes?
 
 
Considering that three years ago, you would be stopped and questioned for carrying such a device, the social acceptance of these cigarettes only gives the clever stoner a better cover. Considering that there are oils available with no nicotine, one could even mix the cannabis oil with oil that smelled like chocolate or vanilla. This would give the stoner a much better cover while out and about, if that’s the kind of stoner that you are. The e-cigs are discreet, small, and can be tucked pretty much anywhere. Not only that but they can be smoked everywhere (almost). You may encounter some people that will refuse to let you smoke them inside but considering the e-digs expel vapor rather than smoke, you can be sneaky and still smoke as long as you’re careful.
 
 
Even though there are arguments saying that smoking a vape may be just as bad as smoking a cigarette, the social acceptance here is the important part. As said above, people smoking a vaporizer in public a few years ago would have certainly been grounds for police suspicion. Now, thanks to the fact that vapes are considered “mainstream”, stoners can load up pens full of pot instead of nicotine oil and enjoy the effects of THC throughout the day, with minimal risk of getting attention from people you’d rather avoid. 
 
 
As more states legalize the plant, there is sure to be e-cigs made and sold that look exactly like the ones on the market now but will only contain cannabis oil. There are companies right now watching the vape market, studying the trends, and preparing themselves for the legalization of cannabis so that they can promote and sell their 420 e-cig. And seeing as how the vapes are so popular now, you can only imagine how much attention they will gain in the next few years.

Colorado Health Officials Recommend Grants For Marijuana Research

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 26th 2014 by THCFinder
colorado-officials-recommend-mj-research-grantsSomething you hear marijuana opponents say over and over is that ‘there needs to be more marijuana research conducted’ before they support reform. That of course is usually only a delay tactic, proven by the fact that these same marijuana opponents fight marijuana research efforts as much as possible. I think deep down they know that research will be favorable to the marijuana movement. Fortunately for marijuana supporters, Colorado health officials have announced their recommendations for 8 marijuana research grants. Per the Denver Post:
 
Colorado health officials have recommended funding two studies on childhood epilepsy, two studies on post-traumatic stress disorder and four other studies as part of the largest-ever state research program on medical marijuana.
 
The studies — totaling about $7.5 million in cost — would be paid for by a surplus of registration fees paid by medical marijuana patients. The grants need final approval by the state Board of Health in December. Research could begin early next year.
 
“We hope the studies will contribute to the scientific research available about the use of marijuana in effectively treating various medical conditions,” Larry Wolk, the executive director of the state health department, said in a statement.
 
Marijuana is medicine. It sounds like such a simple statement, but it’s a statement that marijuana opponents seem to try to refute as much as they can. I can’t wait until these studies are concluded and the results are released. The results will be added to the mountain of evidence that backs up the claim that ‘marijuana is medicine.’ Future generations will look back on the marijuana opponents of this generation and wonder why there was so much fuss, and why anyone ever believed them in the first place.
