Aurora's First Marijuana Shop Opens

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
first-mj-shop-in-co-aurora-opens-upAURORA, Colo. (CBS4/AP) - Aurora’s first recreational marijuana store opened on Monday in a converted bank building that boasts built-in security.
 
Euflora, which has a downtown Denver location already, delayed opening by two weeks, as the company completed necessary renovations Aurora asked for, including parking lot and green space improvements.
 
“The fact that we were two weeks delayed was a little disappointing, but the fact that we’re going to be the first to open is extremely exciting to us,” owner Jamie Perino said. “There’s just a lot of details that they’re looking at.”
 
The first of two expected Euflora stores in Aurora debuted at 10 a.m. on Monday in the 6200 block of South Gun Club Road. The company plans to open another Aurora location on South Buckley Road and East Quincy Avenue.
Perino said the company will staff 30 employees once its third store opens.
 
Aurora has granted licenses to 21 recreational marijuana dispensaries. The city has not yet added a local sales tax onto statewide sales and excise taxes of 27.9 percent. But Aurora voters will consider extra 2 percent local sales taxes on ballots next month.
Statewide, Colorado has more than 250 licensed recreational pot shoyyps.
 
Aurora didn’t allow medical marijuana sales but has decided to allow recreational marijuana. Denver requires stores to close at 7 p.m., but Aurora allows stores to stay open until 10 p.m.

Alien Bubba - Hybrid

This hybrid marijuana strain is the result of crossing the stable Bubba Kush with Alien Kush. The Kush x Kush blending brought about a solid variety that can grow in both indoor and outdoor setting. It can also thrive in the use of other growing mediums like hydro as well as adjust to monster cropping techniques and training imposed by expert growers. Mostly indica in its genetics, this weed plant grows to a medium height and has the tendency to be bushy with side branches stretching sideways and might need to be trimmed periodically.

Local Cannabis Shops Boost Econom

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
local-cannabis-shops-boost-economyThe cannabis industry is set to make people a lot of money. From the trimmers to the growers to the dispensary owners, the leaves of the plant aren't the only green things flying around these days. There's hundreds of millions of dollars sitting out there waiting to be made and since Colorado made the move to legalize two years ago, they've really begun to see how the weed business is benefiting them in more ways than ever imagined.
 
Revenue wasn't something that people doubted but the amount of it wasn't expected. Raking in well over a million dollars in taxes within the first few days of the legal cannabis stores, people were shocked at how much money a single plant could make a state in such a short amount of time. And the money just keeps coming. With Denver being one of the hottest marijuana tourist spots in the US, surpassing even California in the "Places Stoners Want To Visit", it's no surprise that added benefits are coming from the pot shops located in the mile high city.
 
The Colorado Harvest Company is a marijuana shop in Denver and Tim Cullen, the co-owner, recently commissioned a study to find out how much his company was making Denver financially. Jack Strauss from the University of Denver helped to do the study and found that Cullen's two shops have generated more than six times the sales of average retail stores in the city. Not to mention the pot shop had eight times the economic impact as the regular retail shops. If we're going to talk about jobs here as well, we can't neglect to mention that Cullen's two storefronts manage to employ seven times more than an average retail store. Add in the fact that the average wage of the marijuana business is more than $17 an hour. That's more than most people working hourly jobs and that's just the average.
 
With more money going in to the economy, more people get to make more money as well. The benefit of the recreational cannabis shops is incredible. These companies are more apt to pay employees well and to put back in to the community in a positive way. Considering how much money has been put back in to the city of Denver, it would be silly to limit the potential of the recreational shops. Cannabis can fix a lot of the problems that the deterioration of society has caused. People just need to realize it's real potential.

How To Make Your Own Vape Pen Juice

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
how-to-make-your-own-vape-juiceGreetings, fellow crew members of Spaceship Earth. It’s Aarr Kellz here, coming at you from Spaceship Earth Farms with another installment. It seems like the tipping point has finally arrived, and vaporizer pens have gone viral. Back in 2009, I would attract many onlookers upon busting out my trusty ol’ Ce4 Clearomizer. People wanted to know if it worked, and most of all, how it worked. “You put this juice in the chamber and click this button 5 times…”
 
Being a soapmaker by trade it is my natural mentality and modus operandi to immediately break down ingredients in any product I enjoy, and attempt to make it for myself. Such was the case with Vape Juice. Below, you will find a recipe and process for making your own amazing, and safe, glycerine based tincture, that works wonderful as a Vape Juice in any of the juice based pens on the market. We are not talking wax or honey oil pens here, even though those are great as well. We are talking “juice” based vaporizer pens or e-cigs.
 
What is a Vape Pen or E-Cig?:
 
An electronic cigarette is made up of several pieces. Some models have more, some have less, and there seems to be lots of new ones coming out every week. But the basic components of a Vape Pen or E-Cig are:
the cartridge, the atomizer, and the battery. The cartridge is where you insert your tincture drop by drop. One end attaches to the atomizer, the other end to your lips. The atomizer is the heated element that turns your liquid hash tincture into vapor. The battery is the longer portion of the electronic cigarette. Some of these are manual, while some are automatic. Manual pens require some sort of ignition, like a button push, while  utomatic pens merely require the draw of your breath.
 
Vaporizer pens are a fairly new technology, and there is a lot of research and study that still needs to be done to determine the long term effects of using them. There are several types of pens available, but they’re all basically the same. However, there are some that are better made than others. A lot of vaporizer pen’s components are manufactured overseas in countries like China. Don’t go thinking you need to avoid foreign parts, because it can’t be helped. What you need to be aware of, is certain vendors, who may be selling you a $5 pen for $80. It’s best to check the manufacturer to be sure of what you are buying. Do your research. My suggestion would be to find a reputable brand, and use one of their licensed vendors. Buying from an unlicensed vendor can get you cheap knock-off vaporizer pens and e-cigs. Some of them may certainly be healthy and functional, but there are many copies that look almost exactly like their legitimate counterparts, only are manufactured with inferior (i.e. dangerous) metals and components. Components which can burn and emit smoke, rather than exclusively producing vapor from your Vape Juice.
 
What is Vape Juice?
 
The Vape Juice that we will be making is, in fact, a vegetable glycerin based oral tincture and it will take a few weeks to make it correctly. Great tinctures take good, quality ingredients and time. An oral tincture is a liquid that is usually alcohol or glycerin based and has been infused with herbs. They were originally intended to be taken sublingually, absorbed into the blood stream via an artery located under the tongue, using a dropper. Ingesting cannabis via oral tincture this way avoids the liver and first pass metabolism issue that some folks have when medicating with cannabis based edibles. Oral tinctures have been around for thousands of years. They are very safe and effective if made correctly.
 
Why make your own Vape Juice?
 
Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are both used together and independently in many traditional e-cig liquids. I would not recommend ever using non food grade propylene glycol or glycerin. Why? Both propylene glycol and glycerine absorb chemicals from any container that they are stored in. So, in order for it to be labeled food grade, it has to have only been stored in only non-toxic food safe containers since its creation. Non food grade propylene glycol and glycerin are intended for external use only, and should not be vaporized or taken internally. For this Vape Juice recipe, I use only 100% USP-FOOD GRADE VEGTABLE GLYCERINE. In my experimenting I find that it produces a superior amount of vapor compared to propylene glycol. Although, blends of propylene glycol and glycerine are appropriate for nicotine based e-cig liquids and juices.
 
How to make Vape Juice:
 
The following process can be used for any herb, including lavender, garlic, mint, milk thistle, tobacco, and many, many more. You can even make different tinctures and blend them together to make your own custom flavored juices based on your needs or ailments. Taking tinctures orally and vaporizing them is an excellent way of effectively getting these herbs into your body. Different herbs, of course, will require different recipes, though the process is for the most part the same. For this recipe we will use the herb cannabis.
 
First off, if you haven’t yet, take a look at my article “How To Make Dry Ice Hash” and get yourself 3.5 grams of the pure blonde powder. Using a flower tincture is great, but I would really recommend a hash tincture for vape pens, as it’s generally much more concentrated and contains fewer plant waxes and chlorophyll. If you do decide to use flower instead of hash though, then I’d use seven grams of the highest quality bud you can find. Grind it up by hand, about to the consistency of how you would break it up to go into a joint. Avoid a grinder though, if you can, as I find more chlorophyll can be absorbed if the buds are ground up too fine.
 
Next, you will want to get 2-4 ounces of the highest proof alcohol that you can. We’re talking 180 proof or higher. This is easier in some places than others I realize, so just get the safest, highest proof that you can. Make sure it’s drinkable alcohol though, not isopropyl or rubbing alcohol. If you are unable procure a bottle of high proof grain alcohol then make sure that you at the very least get something that is 100 proof or 50% alcohol.  Preferably vodka, as anything else will affect the flavor. Thirdly, you will need 2-4 ounces of 100% USP-FOOD GRADE VEGTABLE GLYCERINE and 1 sterile canning jar with a lid.
 
Place the hash or herbs into the canning jar and add alcohol until all of your herbs are covered at least by a ¼ inch and put the lid on and shake well. Sometimes the plant the material absorbs the alcohol and expands like a sponge. It may be necessary to add more alcohol at this point. Now comes an exercise in patience. Put the jar in a dark place away from light and let it sit and soak for 10-14 days, checking on it and shaking up the contents very well at least once a day. After 10-14 days (I usually wait 13 days), strain the hash or plant material away from the alcohol using a cheesecloth. Place the filtered alcohol tincture in a new sterile jar and mix in 3 parts food grade glycerine. Put the lid on and shake well for at least 2 minutes.
