Seattle's Only Pot Store Too Busy?
Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
Washington has just recently allowed legal cannabis and with the harsh rules and regulations governing the green, there aren't a lot of shops around. In fact, Seattle only has one, called Cannabis City. The shop is the only recreational store in the city and has been since the initiative took effect this year. Even though the idea of being the only recreational store may seem awesome, the high demand is overtaking the supply, as Cannabis City realizes the problems that come with being the only pot shop in Seattle.
Cannabis City has an influx of over 600 customers PER DAY. This number is incredible and it's clear that the business might have trouble handling such a high volume. With that many customers coming through the door a day, Cannabis City runs out of bud at least once a week. They just can't keep their shelves stocked in order to supply Seattle with recreational weed. Amber McGowan, the owner of Cannabis City, says that another pot shop would be welcomed and they impatiently wait for the opening of a second store, Uncle Ike's, any day now.
Something else the shop didn't expect? A crazy amount of business on football Sunday. Although, seeing as how majority of stoners don't seem to drink and would rather toke, this crazy inflow of business makes sense. Last Sunday, the shop pulled in an extra 250 customers. With the average being 600, you have to imagine that Cannabis City potentially serviced almost 1,000 customers just on that Sunday alone. The shop ended up completely selling out, something that McGowan said was a great surprise.
With so many customers coming in the door, the shop has to cap the amount bought at a mere five grams. "People can't even come in to buy an ounce of whatever product they want," McGowan said. "We need a couple more retailers to stay afloat." It's not like the growers can grow the pot faster, so hopefully some relief will arrive for Cannabis City and they'll be able to continue selling their products to the stoners in Seattle.

If Your Pet Eats Weed...

Animals as well as humans have THC receptors in their brains. However, the plant effects them far differently as compared to humans and it's not a good idea to give your furry best friend some of the pot brownie you're mowing down on. But anyone who owns animals knows that pets can usually get in to places that they're not allowed and the kitchen is one of those places. Pets are far smarter when there's food involved and if you happen to either leave your medicated treats out or if your pet managed to break in, it's important to know what to do if they've ingested some cannabis.
If you think that your pet has gotten in to your stash, you should be aware of the symptoms that are associated with cannabis over-consumption. These symptoms include but aren't limited to things such as low heart rate, lack of activity, anxiety, disorientation, tremors, vomiting, and diarrhea. In more severe cases, the pet can have seizures and potentially die if there's been too much cannabis ingested. Most of these symptoms are the worst case scenario and typically, the pet will experience lethargy or possibly go the other way with hyperactivity and anxiety.
When the terrifying experience happens, where you find that your cat or dog has managed to devour a plate of cookies, brownies, or vat of butter, there are two options. Depending on the symptoms, you can induce vomiting and try to get your pet to excrete whatever it's gotten in to. However, this can be extremely expensive and most stoners don't have the money to afford it. The second option, and what happens more often than not, is to let the bud dissipate in your pet's system. Be sure that they're comfortable and have lots of water. Keep an eye on them and be sure not to leave them alone until you're sure that they're feeling better. In the future, be sure to hide your weed from your pet so this situation doesn't happen again.
Pets can ingest cannabis to help with the same problems that humans have, including arthritis and pain in the heart, stomach, spine, and eyes. But they're much smaller than we are and that needs to be taken in to account when giving your pet bud. It's recommended that you only use cannabis on your pet if recommended by a vet and don't EVER blow smoke in your animal's face, as the smell to them is much stronger and can be overpowering and painful for their sensitive noses and ears. Love your pets, don't let them get a hold of your weed!
Does Marijuana Make Food Taste And Smell Better?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
If I am about to eat some fantastic food, I almost always consume marijuana first. It’s something I have always done, and so do most of my friends and family. I have always felt that I find the food more enjoyable when I consume marijuana first. It’s no secret that marijuana can induce ‘the munchies’ but there is now scientific research that explains why. Per Vice:
Led by Giovanni Marsicano of the University of Bordeaux, a team of European neuroscientists proved that THC—the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana—fits into special receptors in the brain’s olfactory bulb, allowing users to smell and taste food far more acutely while high. Since these scientists study neurological diseases, rather than write a column on the intersection of cannabis and cuisine, their report tends to focus on practical medical applications of this exciting new discovery, rather than its role in giving rise to what the New York Times has dubbed haute stoner cuisine.
“Many feeding disorders [like anorexia] are accompanied by altered perception in general,” Marsicano noted. “Smell is particularly linked to food intake and is particularly altered in different diseases…so smell and its regulation by the endocannabinoid system could represent a future target for therapies against these and other diseases.”
Marijuana never ceases to amaze me. If you know someone that wants to enjoy food more, recommend marijuana to them. Also, if you know someone that suffers from an eating disorder, or needs to eat more to help a health condition, also recommend marijuana.
