Colorado Health Officials Want To Ban Almost All Recreational Marijuana Edibles

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
colorado-wants-to-ban-marijuana-ediblesHealth officials in Colorado are calling for what is nearly a full ban on retail marijuana edibles in the state, just 10 months after the first recreational sales of marijuana began.
 
The Associated Press' Kristen Wyatt first reported Monday on the Colorado Department of Health and Environment's request for a ban on the majority of marijuana-infused food products in the state.
 
The call for a ban from the state Health Department comes as multiple lawmakers, state marijuana industry representatives and state officials have made recommendations to be included in a Colorado House bill that seeks additional restrictions on the sale of edible marijuana products, all of which will be discussed in a working group Monday.
 
"Prohibit the production of retail edible marijuana products other than a simple lozenge/hard candy or tinctures that are plainly labeled using universal symbol(s) and that users can add to their products at home," Colorado Health Department officials wrote in their recommendation, obtained by The Huffington Post. "Hard candy/lozenges would be manufactured in single 10 mg doses/lozenges and tinctures would be produced and labeled with dosing instructions, such as two drops equals 10 mg."
 
When reached for comment by The Huffington Post, Health Deputy Director of Communications Jan Stapleman said the agency will not be making a statement about the department's recommendations for the bill until after Monday's working group meeting ends.
 
The House bill's language requires that a working group be assembled before the bill's passage to discuss concerns, recommendations and requests regarding marijuana edibles in the state. The working group will not draft rules or conduct rule-making. Instead, it will produce a report with the recommendations and provide that to the state legislature so lawmakers can best understand the issues and range of available recommendations.
 
The Colorado Department of Revenue's Marijuana Enforcement Division, which oversees the state's marijuana industry including sales of edibles, will make the final rules based on the recommendations from the working group and state lawmakers after the 2015 legislative session.
 
"It is important to note that we will be collecting both supportive and dissenting opinions for each recommendation during the working group process and these opinions will be included in the Division's report to the general assembly," Natriece Bryant, communications specialist at Colorado's Department of Revenue, told HuffPost. "The Division views its primary role as a facilitator to the working group process and as drafter of the final report, it is our role, at this juncture, to ensure that all of the underlying issues and potential recommendations are identified, considered and included in the report.

Berry White - Hybrid

Berry White is a cross of BlueBerry x White Widow. The effects start off all cerebral with a mixture of warm, tingly fuzziness combined with light pressure. Before you break them open, the buds have a nice fruity fragrance. Once you break the buds open you get a massive whiff of a sour berry smell. This strain could be very good for those who suffer from migraines and also good for muscle spasms and restlessleg syndrome.

Marijuana and Ebola: Experts Weigh In

ebola-and-medical-cannabis
Cannabis Sativa, Inc. CEO Gary Johnson believes marijuana is "potentially an actual cure" for the Ebola virus. And his medical director predicts it "will help the survival of this deadly disease."
 
“We actually believe we have efficacy with regard to treating Ebola," Johnson recently said. “I am not a snake oil salesman. I’m not. You know, I’m the former governor of New Mexico.”
 
David B. Allen of Cannabis Sativa argues that cannabinoids inhibit VEGF and other Cytokines, which is critical to countering the effecs of Ebola. "Cannabinoids are emerging as a new class of drugs that treat infections of bacteria, fungi and virus by different mechanisms of action not found in any other class of drug." he writes. "Cannabinoids inhibit many different virus strains from replicating."
 
Allen calls on the "medical community to start human trials on survivability of Ebola infected patients" using cannabinoids, specifically cannabidiol (CBD), because  "cannabis is so very safe especially under doctor supervision."

Hemp Building Material Absorbs Pollutants And Improves Insulation

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
hemp-helps-the-environmentHemp never ceases to amaze me. Hemp is great for making clothes. Hemp seed is a great food source. Hemp is better to make paper out of than wood, although as we continue to transition to digital formats, that need is becoming less prevalent, but still prevalent enough to be relevant nonetheless. I read an article not too far back that showed hemp is likely to be used to make more efficient batteries in the future. It appears that hemp is a stellar building material too, creating a material that absorbs pollutants while also improving insulation compared to petroleum products. Per Green Optimistic:
 
Just because a building has to be solid and tough, it does not mean that the materials used to construct it have to be hard-core polluting steel and concrete. Not long ago we drew your attention to eco-friendly cement, which can be used in the making of concrete, now it is time to move on to other eco-friendly materials. A team of scientists from University of Bath, UK, working under the HIVE project, has set their eyes on using hemp as a replacement to oil-based products in insulating materials.
 
To be more precise, the guys decided to focus on hemp-lime and hemp fiber. Building materials made of these were found to have perfect insulating properties, they absorb moisture from the air, and can control the internal temperature of the building. To make the material suitable for construction, all that is needed is to mix the hemp with lime-based binder and turn it into highly resistant to fire and decay building panels.
 
Building with hemp materials is a win-win every way you look at it. It helps the environment, it’s cost effective, and it’s efficient. Petroleum based building materials are harmful to the environment, get more expensive all the time, and don’t work nearly as well as hemp based products. I can’t wait until someday when I can afford to build a house made out of hemp!
