Grapefruit - Sativa

Grapefruit is a high-yielding sativa with fast flowering times. A sweet taste and a nice tropical high. The guys from DNA Genetics are Southern California natives who migrated to realize their calling as breeders in the relative weed freedom of Amsterdam. But they didn't leave all that great Cali genetics behind. California Grapefruit combines three of the Golden State's favorite indicas: Northern Lights, Skunk #1 and Afghani.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Becomes Canada's First to Accept Bitcoin

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder

Mega Chill has become the first medical marijuana dispensary in Canada to accept bitcoin.
 
Since the formal announcement this September, Mega Chill has seen an overwhelmingly positive response from the community, both from patients familiar with bitcoin and customers who had never heard of the digital currency.
 
The relationship between bitcoin and the marijuana industry is long-standing due to bitcoin’s ability to offer an alternative to the traditional banking system and its still-prevalent use in online dark markets.
 
In the case of Mega Chill, however, the decision had less to do with sidestepping potential money problems and more to do with the growing popularity of bitcoin as a payment method. CoinDesk spoke with co-owner Matt Jung, who cited the public’s curiosity and enthusiasm for digital currency as the reason his business decided to accept bitcoin.
 
Jung said customers have begun using bitcoin regularly since Mega Chill started accepting it, telling CoinDesk:
 
“It’s been really good for our patients. One girl who comes in gets paid in bitcoin, so it’s perfect for her.”
 
Notably, the company manages its own bitcoin wallet rather than using a payments processor.
 
Ideal bitcoin merchant
 
For some, Mega Chill represents the ideal merchant for bitcoin – a business that is a relative newcomer to the technology but still sees the benefits of accepting it.
 
Jung told CoinDesk that Mega Chill, like other small businesses, is responding to grassroots support for the technology. He added his belief that bitcoin is an easy-to-use payment method and that the public ledger makes record-keeping simple as well.
 
Jung explained:
 
“It’s an interesting new step to take – a new emerging technology. It’s always good to have another payment method, to have more options for everybody.”
 
He added that from a financial management standpoint, bitcoin has helped reduced some of the friction Mega Chill faces as a marijuana business, including the hurdles it experienced when dealing with either card issuers or banking institutions.
 
“It eliminates a lot of the complications of dealing with the banks and dealing with the credit card companies,” Jung said.

United States House Passes "No Welfare For Weed" Bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
no-welfare-for-weedApparently the United States House of Representatives thinks there is an epidemic of people using welfare money to buy recreational marijuana. I personally haven’t heard of anyone doing it in Washington and Colorado. Welfare money is always a hot-button issue in Washington D.C. and throughout America. Late yesterday the House of Representatives passed a bill that would make it harder for people to use welfare money to buy marijuana. Per ABC News:
 
The House passed a bill Tuesday that could make it a little harder for people to use government welfare payments to buy marijuana in states where the drug is legal.
 
Supporters call it the “no welfare for weed” bill.
 
The bill would prevent people from using government-issued welfare debit cards to make purchases at stores that sell marijuana. It would also prohibit people from using the cards to withdraw cash from ATMs in those stores.
 
A 2012 federal law already prevents people from using welfare debit cards at liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs.
 
The bill is limited in that it only prevents someone from withdrawing money or making a direct purchase at a marijuana store. To get around the law, all someone has to do is withdraw money from an ATM that is not located at a marijuana store. I have a much more solid way to ensure people aren’t using welfare money to buy recreational marijuana – legalize marijuana cultivation for all Americans. If people could grow a few marijuana plants themselves, the need to buy marijuana at stores (with welfare money or otherwise) would be reduced dramatically. But I don’t think Congress will go for that. This bill targets marijuana consumers and those on welfare, two areas of American society that politicians love to go after. I don’t see them giving up on that anytime soon.

Marijuana ad campaign promotes responsible consumption

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-ad-consume-responsibleA new campaign urging responsible marijuana use is being rolled out Wednesday to counter hyperbolic anti-drug advertisements of the past — which were mostly blowing smoke.
 
"Consume Responsibly" is the first-ever comprehensive public education campaign about using — and not abusing — the drug.
 
"For decades marijuana education in this country has been based on scaring adults away from using marijuana. Now that marijuana is becoming legal in states around the country, it's time for a more realistic and honest approach," Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, told the Daily News.
 
MPP, the nation's largest pro-marijuana legalization group, is sparking the campaign in Denver with a billboard of a distraught woman and a warning for tourists.
 
"Don't let a candy bar ruin your vacation," it reads, alluding to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd's column about eating a bit too much of a pot candy bar in a Denver hotel.
 
People interested in trying edible marijuana products are encouraged to start with a low dose of THC and only take a small bite at first. The effects can kick in up to two hours after swallowing — but you wouldn't know that from the anti-marijuana ads from the past that were filled with scare tactics and misinformation.
 
Those advertisements — often produced by agencies are organizations dedicated to maintaining marijuana prohibition — warned that pot use will make you fry your brain, hurt your children, disappoint your dog and even support terrorists."These are essentially abstinence-only campaigns, which we know don't work when it comes to behaviors that millions of people choose to engage in," Tvert said.
 
Like many others, Dowd probably saw plenty of these zero-tolerance War on Drugs or Just Say No advertisements, but not a single one about how to safely engage in the marijuana consumption if that is one's choice as an adult in a state where the drug is legal.

Sour Grapes- Hybrid

A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.
