'Weed Fairy' Hands Out Free Marijuana Around Seattle
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
Was she working alone, or was this a joint venture?
A magical creature known as the “Weed Fairy” made her way to Seattle this past weekend to flit around and give away free marijuana to “keep spirits high.”
This illustrious weed fairy — who we’d also dare call a goddess of ganj — is really a 23-year-old woman named Yeni Sleidi. She visits various cities to post flyers with nuggets of pot taped to them:
Originally from California, the Weed Fairy is only in Seattle for a few weeks, she told local Fox affiliate KCPQ. She has done the same thing in New York a few months back, and positive feedback encouraged her to keep it going. Naturally, though, some people are skeptical.
“I think people are a little worried, because this is something new, and suspicious,” Sleidi said. “But it’s real weed and it’s not dangerous. It will get you high.”
Since weed is legal in Washington and not New York, this time around Sleidi didn’t have to worry as much about keeping anonymous. Over the weekend, she managed to give away around 40 nuggets.

Cannabis Food Truck In Seattle?
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
These days, everything is fast and on the go. Food, friends, jobs, everything. The internet has made everyone extremely impatient, not to mention the massive amounts of people that are just... Everywhere! So say that you work in a busy city, where traffic is always an issue, and you need to find a good spot to grab a bite to eat while still being able to get out of the office. For workers in Seattle that need some food (and maybe a little afternoon pick-me-up), there's the possibility of a cannabis food truck starting to patrol the streets, selling delicious cannabis treats.
The Seattle based company is called Magicalbutter.com. While the company spokespeople say that they're not quite ready for business, the truck is definitely in the works. The law in Seattle still bans public marijuana consumption as well as saying that cannabis businesses must have a set location and a legitimate address, neither of which a food truck would posses... Unless it was part of a storefront? The plan still needs work and the laws may make it difficult for the truck to become reality but the motivation of MagicalButter.com isn't going to stop any time soon!
In addition to the laws in Washington, there have also been reports of edible-related deaths in Colorado, causing an uprising of caution when it comes to ingesting cannabis in food. The reports say that the deaths were "related", not actually "caused" so there is still some speculation as to the events leading to the deaths, as there has never been a death caused by cannabis in the history of our society. There has also been an increase in child visits to the ER, having ingested food containing cannabis. Of course when the plant is put in to things like cookies, gummy worms, and peanut butter, it's extremely important to keep them far out of reach of children.
The truck is still in the works and may not appear on the streets for another few years. But don't worry, the company will host private events on private properties so those stoners that are interested in cannabis infused peanut butter and jelly sandwiches won't be let down! Even though a mobile cannabis eatery sounds great, the ideas of these companies are starting to exceed the development of the laws. Hopefully, politics will catch up with these innovative ideas sooner rather than later!

Why Children Deserve Cannabis
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
While giving kids cannabis for health issues isn't exactly common practice, it's these young people who need the plant more than anyone when they're suffering from epilepsy or cancer. The medicines that are produced by large pharmacy can have dangerous side effects, not to mention the rapid deteriorating effect that chemo has on a person. Kids especially need the healing power of cannabis because it virtually has no side effects, leaving the young one using it to develop and live a more normal childhood.
When a person is diagnosed with epilepsy, it means that the neurotransmitters in the brain are constantly firing. These transmitters are part of the encocannabinoid system that every human body possesses and are also connected to the psychoactive effects of THC. However, when high levels of CBD are introduced, it triggers a reaction in the endocannabinoid system and sends messages to the transmitters, telling them to stop firing off so rapidly. This effect drastically decreases seizing in patients and is being looked at as an incredibly effective medicine against epilepsy, especially in children.
CBD treatments on children with epilepsy were shown to be incredibly effective. Parents of these children were so happy with the results that they claimed the plant to be an actual miracle... Which, after trying multiple different pills, tranquilizers, and steroids, isn't a surprise. A study done by the National Institute of Health in 2013 showed that CBD treatments in children with epilepsy showed that 16 out of 19 children taking CBD showed drastic improvement. In two of those cases, the epilepsy disappeared completely.
The appeal of highly concentrated CBD cannabis products is overwhelming. Even though there are some people who still don't agree (there are many reports of families getting Child Protective Services called on them for using cannabis as a treatment rather then the "normal" way), the progress of the children who are taking cannabis now cannot be denied. Pills given to these kids can cause liver failure, developmental problems, and completely take away the child's lust for life, causing them to become zombified and sad. A child should not have to spend their younger years in hospitals or being shot up with terrible drugs with adverse effects. If there is a natural, side effect free cure out there, there's absolutely no reason why we shouldn't be using it, researching it, and benefiting from it.
Hundreds of families have relocated to the state of Colorado in order to get their hands on the strain of cannabis known as Charlotte's Web, named after a little girl with epilepsy that the strain was specifically made for. The stain contains only the very smallest amounts of THC, leaving almost no psychoactive effect when ingested. Instead, the strain has an extremely high CBD content. The waiting list for this particular strain is months long and full of hopeful parents that want nothing but health for their suffering children.
Five Lies About Cannabis
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
Cannabis has had a bad name since 1906. There are hundreds of lies about the plant, when it reality, the only bad thing about it is getting caught with it! Cannabis benefits all different kinds of people, from recreational users who just want to unwind to cancer patients suffering through chemotherapy. Of course we couldn't include all of the lies that people have made up about cannabis so we picked a few to debunk!
1. It'll kill you.
Chances are, you're not going to die from cannabis consumption. You have a higher chance of being eaten by a shark and even those odds are low. Most people who ingest a good amount of cannabis end up passing out on the couch or eating all of the food that you just bought at the grocery store. No, cannabis is less dangerous then most of the stuff you find in your medicine cabinet.
2. Cannabis is the gateway drug.
No, it's a person's inability to say "no thanks" that is the gateway. Cannabis has been given a negative name and is then associated with other negative things (people assume that every person that sells weed must also deal coke, heroin, and meth). This terrible misconception is taught at a young age, deterring young people from even giving the plant a chance. Cannabis is NOT a gateway drug but instead is used as a scapegoat for people who have no backbone.
3. It's illegal for a good reason!
What reason exactly? In all of my time blogging about cannabis, I have never heard a legitimate argument as to why the plant should be illegal. In fact, the hate towards cannabis makes me think that everything should be illegal. Did you know that 100% of people that drink water die? We should probably ban that shit too!
4. It's bad for you.
While smoking anything is sure to have a somewhat negative impact on your throat and lungs, there are many other ways to ingest cannabis that don't involve smoking it. Cannabis has actually been shown to improve brain function, the digestive system, and help manage pain relief in a safe, non-addicting manner. Not to mention that cannabis doesn't have the awful side effects that pills give certain people.
5. People who smoke weed are lazy, stupid, and unmotivated.
Absolutely not true! There are hundreds of upperclass people that are ripping bongs in their free time! Recently, there was a huge hype about the FBI having trouble finding computer hackers to fight cyber terrorists... Why? Because people that sit behind a computer all day, reading HTML and binary, are also smoking a joint at the same time. Since the FBI's policy states that an employee must be cannabis free for three years prior to their hire, they're having a huge issue finding employees and may be forced to remove cannabis from their policy or face falling victim to cyber terrorists. And if the FBI has to change their policy regarding pre-employment, hopefully other places will as well (including Wal-mart, CVS, and Sears).
Watering Tips And Techniques For Outdoor Marijuana Growers
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
Watering needs depend on your growing site’s location and the genetics of your crop. If you have a fairly humble-sized crop, then various hand-watering methods should suffice. Some marijuana growers haul water out to their site and then use watering pots or run hoses from a large container to their site. If you have been able to find a site that is fairly close to water, and you have a small number of plants, it may make the most sense to refill from the source and carry the water back and forth. This limits your liability since you’ll never be questioned as to why you are bringing 100 gallons of water into the woods.
If you have a lot marijuana plants you may have to consider more elaborate methods, such as using battery- or gas-powered pumps. These have drawbacks in that they are usually very loud and the sound of a motor can carry for milks: not ideal for stealth operations. These systems require a source of power and constant water supply and sometimes need to be set up in an intricate way involving many subsections like tubing and platforms. Once in place, they have the ability to deliver tremendous volumes of water, according to the exact schedule that you need.
Another method is to fashion a slow-drip irrigation system. Using a one-gallon milk jug, poke a couple of pinholes into the bottom, which allows a steady, but small amount of water to be released. The advantage to this is that you only need refill the jugs, which, once in place, will water your plants on a consistent basis. The marijuana plant never suffers from too much watering as can happen if you travel to your site only occasionally. If your plants aren’t getting enough water, then either add more jugs to water specific plants, or make the holes larger if the problem is the water retention abilities of the soil. Of course if you’re just growing a few marijuana plants, and they are on your property, using an ordinary garden hose works great.

One very cheap and readily available source of water is of course, rainwater. Clean rainwater is a good source for your plants because tap water can contain unwanted chemicals. A lot of water systems use chemicals to clean the water to make it potable, or drinkable. They can also add additional chemicals to neutralize the taste, so that you don’t taste the chemicals, just the water. Tap water PH may also be above or below 7. While this is great for humans and our finicky taste buds, it can be detrimental to the plants. One thing to watch out for is the amount of sodium (NaCl or salt) in the water. If you water your plants with overly salty water, their eventual size could be reduced by as much as 50%. Tap water can also contain chlorides, sulfates, and other solids, which helps to explain why the sales of water filtration systems are so brisk. It is also why using distilled water is recommended for young seedlings, before they are transplanted.
If you are concerned about the quality of water you are delivering to your plants (or drinking!) there are test kits available for sale at gardening and hardware stores. They will help you deter- mine water quality and let you know which chemicals are prevalent in the largest amounts.
If you don’t want to deal with this at all, then rainwater is an easy solution. The best way to catch rainwater is to place a large container under a drain spout during the rainiest months of the year. Usually this will happen in the spring so forethought is once again crucial to success. If the area being drained is generally clear of water-soluble chemicals, the rainwater should be perfect for the plants; Then your only problem is storing the water and transporting it to the site.
