Advice For Newbie Weed Buyers
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
We all have to start somewhere! With legalization slowly crawling over the US as well as the rest of the world, it's possible that more people will begin to smoke weed (or not, we still aren't really sure as to what's going to happen with that). But even if you're not new to smoking, buying weed in a store for the first time might be a bit weird... So here's a list of things to pay attention to when you're going to shop for bud, according to experts in Colorado.
- Don't start with the strong stuff! Edibles and concentrates aren't for the weak, newbie stoner! These products are strong and have the potential to really mess your day up so if you're not used to smoking flower, don't run in to the legal stores and buy an armful of medicated Rice Krispy Treats.
- Ask the budtender questions! Don't be afraid, they're not going to bite! It's like asking what's the best shot of vodka to order at the bar. While you may know what you like, there may always be something better for you to try. Ask questions, learn new things!
- Driving out of legal states? Don't. Troopers are watching the borders of Washington and Colorado closely to make sure that people aren't taking the legal weed elsewhere. While it's okay for you to have it inside the states, as soon as you leave, it's illegal. Don't transport weed out of the legal states if you want to avoid getting caught!
- Just like shopping for clothes, be sure to shop around for bud prices! Some stores will have sky high prices (sometimes over $600 an ounce for top shelf strains) and others will have the same strains for way less (around $100 an ounce). If you think you may be able to find a better price, try it! You don't want to spend all of your rent money on bud, right?
- Keep calm! It's just buying bud! At least now, you won't have to fret over the people in the parking lot watching you buy weed from your friend. There's no more sketchy meet ups, no more freaking out about sirens chasing you on your way home. Just chill out and smoke your legal weed. Enjoy it!
Cannabis Farmers Markets Are A Great Idea
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
One of my favorite things to do is visit local farmers markets to purchase fresh, local produce and meats. In America, we moved away from purchasing produce and meat locally over the last few decades. Farmers markets are reinventing how we get food, and I personally would rather support a local farmer directly, rather than go to a chain grocery store and purchase items that I have no idea where they originated.
The same theory of supporting local farmers directly is now being applied to the cannabis industry. Over Fourth of July weekend a farmers market was launched in Los Angeles. The goal of the farmers market is to provide safe, reliable access to cannabis. Prices tend to be cheaper at farmers markets compared to other safe access avenues because the cannabis is being purchased directly from the farmer. There’s no third party involved other than the farmer having to pay for their table at the market. Per The Hollywood Reporter:
“This is an opportunity that unfortunately is not seen as much as we would like,” California Heritage Market executive administrator Paizley Bradbury said of the chance for patients and growers to interact. “We’re hoping that the California Heritage Market can bridge this gap and provide a new and affordable experience for those who need safe access they can trust.”
The cannabis farmers market in Los Angeles is not the first of it’s kind, contrary to mainstream media reports. There have been small farmers markets in Oregon for a handful of years now, and I have also heard of ones in Washington. But despite not being the first to do it, the farmers market in Los Angeles is still a stellar idea that I hope will be continue. I also hope to see other ones pop up all over California and beyond.
Arizona To Allow Medical Marijuana For PTSD
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
One of the conditions that would most benefit from the effects of marijuana is PTSD. Post traumatic stress disorder effects many of the people who are whisked overseas and fight for our freedoms... Which should include the freedom of getting the best medicine possible when they return from duty. However, that's not the case most of the time. Instead, the vets get told that they are not allowed to use a natural medicine like marijuana but instead are fed Vicodin and morphine. When vets ask for the plant, they are scorned at the VA hospital, being told that no, marijuana is still illegal.
Officials in Arizona, however, are beginning to think differently regarding their residents that have fought in wars. On Wednesday, the Director of the Department of Health and Services Will Humble, announced that PTSD sufferers will be able to utilize marijuana for their symptoms starting January 1st. Not only in this a great step for the vets who reside in Arizona but for marijuana advocates everywhere. Most states and laws do not recognize PTSD as a valid condition for medical marijuana and pro-potters have been trying to convince people that cannabis is extremely good for veterans and helps relieve their worst symptoms.
Humble published a blog post on the health department's website on Wednesday, stating, "Today, I issued a Director's Decision that will authorize the use of marijuana for patients that are currently undergoing conventional treatment for a diagnosis of PTSD. Physician certifications would be valid only for the palliative care of PTSD symptoms (not treatment). Certifying physicians will be required to attest that they have reviewed evidence documenting that the patient is currently undergoing conventional treatment for PTSD before signing the medical marijuana certification." The announcement from Humble comes as a surprise, as he previously said that there was insufficient evidence on cannabis' effects on PTSD. Humble seemed to change his mind about the subject when an administrative law judge suggested that state officials allow the use of cannabis for PTSD.
Those that are suffering from PTSD will be able to use the plant this January, after the state has time to work out official rules and regulations. The dispensaries also need to prepare their educational literature as well as up their stocks, as there are many people that suffer from PTSD and will probably end up needing the plant to help assist them sleep, eat, and live normally. Hopefully the new ruling will allow PTSD sufferers to get the help and treatment that they need.
