Granddaddy Purple - Indica

Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because it%u2019s such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.

Oncologists In India: Lift Ban On Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
lift-ban-mmjMarijuana is medicine, whether it be in the United States, India, or any other part of the world. That’s a fact that has been backed up by a mountain of scientific evidence and countless personal testimonies by suffering patients. Anyone who claims that marijuana is not medicine needs to have their head checked. More and more states in America are realizing that marijuana is an effect for of medicine, and many other nations are starting to realize it to. One of those nations is India, where leading oncologists are lobbying the government to allow medical marijuana. Per the Times of India:
 
Marijuana or ganja may be frowned upon as a banned recreational drug, but could offer an effective cure for cancer, say top oncologists of Bengaluru. They have now decided to lobby with the Centre to lift the ban on cannabis to allow them to explore the medicinal uses of the plant.
 
They point out that the US allows its use for medicinal purposes, following several validations of the plant’s derivatives giving a healing touch to cancer patients.
 
Their interest in cannabis research was stirred up during recent debates on tobacco farming. “We are encouraging cultivation of tobacco that causes various types of cancer. At the other end, we are ignoring the medicinal properties of a plant that can help cancer patients. We are not even able to take up research as procurement of the plant is illegal in India, whereas oncologists in 21 states of the US are prescribing derivatives of cannabis for cancer treatment,” Dr Vishal Rao, surgical oncologist, HCG, told TOI.
 
I always feel that banning medical marijuana research is proof in itself that marijuana is medicine. If opponents truly felt that the opposite was true, they would allow research to be conducted in order to debunk claims by supporters. However, they know that research will unlock the truth, and that the only debunking that will occur is the debunking of reefer madness. Fortunately, there is more than enough research already out there which creates enough momentum that medical marijuana research is inevitable whether opponents like it or not.

Dabs Snowball In Maine

Category: Concentrates | Posted on Tue, January, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
dabs-in-maineFor those who may possibly live under a rock, dabs are a concentrated form of marijuana that can sometimes leave a user rocked. Seasoned smokers love dabs. They hit hard and last a long time. Their discreet odor and small amounts make them easy to transport and ingest sneakily, regardless of where you are. In Bangor, Maine, where medical marijuana laws changed to allow concentrated cannabis, dabs are gaining an extremely large amount of popularity in the medical marijuana community. 
 
 
Since the explosion of e-cigarettes, the use of concentrated cannabis product has been on the rise. Since smoking them is so easy to conceal, people have been adding cannabis oil to their e-cigarettes, giving them an easy and portable way to get high. But while stoners are excited about the long lasting euphoria that comes with the concentrated product, law enforcement is worried about the effect that it might have on the people of Maine.
 
 
“Like methamphetamine labs, the production of the hash oil using this process can be extremely hazardous due to the chance of fire or explosion,” said Peter Arno, the northern commander of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. “The butane honey oil process produces a hash oil which can have extremely high THC content… If/when we run in to one of these types of extraction labs, MDEA’s lab team will respond in a similar fashion to meth labs.” While Arno has a point that the extraction process is dangerous, it isn’t completely fair to say that cannabis is comparable to meth. The extraction process can be dangerous and should only be done by professionals who know what they’re doing but comparing the two substances is just slightly unfair. 
 
 
Even advocates of marijuana are voicing concern for those who aren’t experienced in the marijuana world. “Because it is more potent, there is more of a public health issue,” said Paul McCarrier, a former spokesman for Caregivers of Maine. “Concentrates are much stronger than leaf marijuana and new users should take note.” McCarrier now leads the Legalize Maine public action committee, a group working towards legalizing recreational marijuana statewide. 
 
 
Concentrated cannabis holds large benefits for patients using medical marijuana. If people continue to act blindly and create their own products, therefore resulting in negative consequences, the possibility of concentrates being eliminated from the marijuana industry becomes larger. San Jose, California recently banned the sale of concentrates after fear of the negative effects got the best of people. In short, it is best to leave production of cannabis concentrate to the people who genuinely know what they’re doing

Massachusetts Schools To Offer Course On Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, January, 5th 2015 by THCFinder
mass-to-offer-schools-on-marijuanaThere are many people that probably thought that they would never see the day where a positive class about marijuana would be taught in schools. Not only that but never did people think that there would be fully established schools that are dedicated to teaching about marijuana. Jeanne Ficcardi-Sauro was one of the first students that enrolled at the new Northeastern Institute of Cannabis or NIC. The school is a two classroom school that is located in an office park that prepares people for positions in the marijuana business. Teachings range from jobs like dispensary workers to medical marijuana educators. Seeing as how dispensaries are set to open within the next year in Massachusetts, NIC has already graduated 12 students and 64 more have enrolled for the next bout of classes.
 
 
Help wanted ads are beginning to pop up on Monster.com, according to Keith Saunders, a sociology professor who oversees the curriculum at NIC. He figures that with each of the state’s 15 approved dispensaries, there will be a need for at least 35 to 40 workers, continuing to hire more as the businesses expand. “When the dispensaries roll out, it will happen quickly,” he said. There are other schools like NIC in the Massachusetts area. New England Grass Roots Institute in Quincy, MA caters to the medical marijuana patients and the Cannabis Career Institute occasionally offers business training sessions in Boston, regarding marijuana. 
 
 
NIC students receive a certificate of completion when they graduate the school. Each student must complete twelve four-hour courses, which includes medical marijuana 101. This class covers the basics of marijuana as a medicine, the law regarding cannabis in New England, an overview of the laws, and cultivation techniques. The only downside is that there is no actual marijuana on site. Instead, the school is strictly academic. Additionally, students must pass two hour long exam and pass with a 70% or higher on each of the 12 sections, with a final grade of 75% or higher. The length of the program is four to six weeks and as of right now, costs $2,000. The price will drop on January 1st to $1,500. 
 
 
Predicting exactly how many jobs will be created by the new program is hard to say but it will most likely be a significant number. With the call for growers, bud tenders, trimmers, managers, delivery services, etc, the marijuana business will create hundreds if not thousands of new jobs in the Massachusetts area.
