Does A Strain Name Mean Anything Anymore?
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
For a lot of people, strain names are a huge part of picking what medicine they want to smoke. Different strains come with different benefits for certain ailments. But for those in illegal states who still buy their bud from a street dealer, and even those in medical states, run the risk of getting different bud than what it's said to be. Not necessarily a totally different strain name but different grow conditions contribute to the bud in the end result!
Getting weed from a street dealer means that you have absolutely not idea what the strain is, nor if the bud is quality. When in the situation of buying weed off of a less than reputable person, one learns to disregard strain names and stick to "good" and "bad". In my personal experience, I have seen Blue Dream look bright and fluffy, while other times I've gotten what was said to be the same strain, yet condensed and with an abundance of orange hairs. Very little similarities in what was said to be the same strain prove that strain name doesn't always matter.
At the same time, dispensaries get their weed from different growers as well. And as said before, every grow room is different. Different conditions produce different buds so not all medicine is alike. This is really apparent in purple strains, which can be more or less purple with hotter or colder temperatures. Even the different types of growing (hydro, soil, air) can effect the outcome of the flowers. Even a sad looking bag of nugs can have good genetics but the growing process effects the plant greatly and can make or break a harvest.
Basically, while strain names may be an asset to cannabis, some people just can't depend on them. Which is fine! Just be sure that you know what you're getting. Those with medical access don't have to watch out for it as much because the dispensaries are so meticulous about the bud they sell. But those still buying from a street dealer should be aware that the name given isn't always what it is and it's better just to go with "nameless" sometimes, rather than saying it's a certain strain and then getting your head bit off because you were "wrong".

Maine Legislative Council To Vote Today On Introduction Of Marijuana Legalization Measure
Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
On Thursday, November 21st, the Maine Legislative Council will be voting on whether or not to allow the introduction of LR 2329, a measure sponsored by Rep. Diane Russell (D-Portland) which would legalize the cultivation, possession, and use of marijuana by individuals over the age of 21 in addition to establishing retail outlets to sell marijuana and marijuana products.
It is extremely important that we cross this first hurdle at the Legislative Council tomorrow. We have a very real chance of passing this legislation if it is introduced. This is why we are asking all Maine residents to please take a minute of your time to contact the members of the council and urge them to support the introduction of this legislation.

Final language will be released soon, but you can see an overview of the legislation below. NORML believes this legislation presents a smart approach on marijuana for the state of Maine. It would allow anyone over the age of 21 to possess up to 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana, cultivate up to 6 plants, and purchase marijuana from established retail outlets. It also has key provisions in place that ensure individuals with several years residency in Maine and experience as a current medical marijuana dispensaries or caregiver are given priority on business licenses, explicitly leaves the current medical marijuana law in place for patients, and directs tax revenue to help low income patients be able to afford their medicine.

Cannabis Fruit Snacks
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, November, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
For those that are trying to stay healthy, edibles can be dangerous! Thankfully, there are still a few healthy recipes out there, although it's pretty hard to track them down. This recipe creates a sort of fruit-nut-spice ball. It' not the healthiest thing in the world but it is better than a brownie or Rice Krispy treat, right?
What You'll Need;
1 tsp coriander
1 handful stone dates
1 tsp black peppercorns
4 average size cinnamon sticks
1 handful shelled almonds
1/4 oz cannabis
1 cup sugar
1 whole nutmeg
1 handful peanuts
1 handful dried figs
1 pat butter
Take the black peppercorns, cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg and grind them in to a powder. A mortar works well for this step or you can use a coffee grinder if it's clean and you're feeling lazy. Then, chop up the almond, peanuts, dried figs, and stone dates. Mix them together well. Then, take the cannabis and grind it with your mortar or coffee grinder. Dissolve the sugar in to the pat of butter. Take the cannabis and spices, mix them together very well, and dust it over the fruit and nuts. Then, using the butter mixture, knead everything together thoroughly.
At this point, you can either cut the pieces in to shapes with a cutter or just roll them in to small golfball sized balls. Since edibles are stronger than smoking, be sure that you know how the pieces will effect you before engulfing the whole plate of them. I'm also sure that you could cut down the amount of sugar in these as well. Enjoy!
Rose joint for that special someone in your life = )
