Which State Has Better Marijuana; Colorado Or Washington?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
The Super Bowl just ended, and it’s clear which state has the better football team, as the Seattle Seahawks crushed the Denver Broncos. The game was not that exciting, but I did participate in an interesting conversation with some of my friends and family during the game. Colorado and Washington both legalized marijuana. Which state has the best marijuana, Colorado or Washington?
I have had the benefit of attending events in both areas, and have smoked a lot of marijuana in both states. I live in the Pacific Northwest, and bought A LOT of marijuana from Washington State in my lifetime. It’s definitely some of the best in the world. However, in my humble opinion, I think that Colorado has the better marijuana. There of course is no way to prove it, so it’s purely just my opinion, but I think it’s an educated opinion.
I absolutely invite anyone and everyone from Washington to try to change my mind. When I come visit, I can assure you that I’m more than willing to smoke all of your top shelf marijuana ha ha. But based upon my experience in both states, I’d have to give the slight edge to Colorado. What do readers think? If you have visited both areas, which one had the better product? Let the debate begin!

More Health Benefits of Hemp
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
Ingesting hemp is very good for the health of the human body. Leaves and seeds provide high doses of essential acids and benefit the body in many ways. Although it is so good for us, it's still banned as a Schedule 1 because it's so closely related to cannabis, even though most people know that you can't smoke it. As an industrial substance and a health benefit, however, hemp's global economic market is valued at $100-$200 million annually.
While hemp is great for making money, the benefits it give us in relation to health are awesome. Hempseed oil has been analyzed by researchers and has been shown to scientifically promote good health. Containing Omega-3 fatty acids, hempseed oil could help to prevent people from developing coronary heart disease. Ingesting this product could also potentially lower cholesterol and a lower risk of heart attack. Basically, having hemp as part of your diet is nothing but good for you.
In addition to being extremely heart healthy, hempseed oil contains what is called aliphatic alcohols. These assist not only in the reduction of cholesterol levels but also contains anti-cancer benefits. Aliphatic alcohols are also found in vegetables like beans and asparagus. Tocopherol is another antioxidant contained in hempseed oil, which helps to protect the body from degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. Hempseed oil also has positive effects on dermatological issues and lipid metabolism or when the fatty acids are broken down by the body.
Forget about getting high for a second and read over what just hemp can do for the body. Health is a constant worry these days and people want to do everything they can to keep their bodies free from dangerous disease... Or possibly just the common cold! Eating hemp products is definitely something that you should be researching and if you can, adding in to your diet on a daily basis.
The Cost Of Bud
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, January, 31st 2014 by THCFinder
Buying marijuana is pretty much a permanent fixture on the stoner's monthly expenses. Bills get paid first (or at least they should) and then the remaining bill money is spent on buying bud. Depending on where you live, this could be a decently large amount of money. The prices of cannabis differ in different geographical locations, providing stoners with either a little bit of extra weed or a little less. In some areas, this may be a lot less, as there are some states that have terrible grow conditions or are just difficult to sell in due to laws, so the prices are jacked up in order to even out the risk involved.
Place in California sell ounces for as little as $150. While the weed obviously isn't top shelf, it's still smokable and of better quality then most states end up receiving. High end strains end up going for $200 and up, depending on what the strains is and the dispensary. California seems to be the place with the lowest prices for cannabis because even though Colorado has legal bud, their tax rate brings the total price up a considerable amount. And for those stoners that are on a budget, price of bud is everything. Not only that but getting decent quality is important, especially when you don't have a lot of money to spend. There are so many stoners out there that manage to spend some money on bud and end up with a bag of Brown Frown!
The farther north you go in the states, the price gets higher. States that border Canada can see ounces go anywhere from $225 for alright stuff to over $400 for what is supposed to be the best but as said above, the kind of quality you get is always a risk. Even small amounts get frustrating when you manage to find an extra $20 that isn't going towards electricity, rent, or some other form of necessary bill, head to your dealer's place, and leave with a bag of what could pass as the stuff that gets scraped from lawnmower blades. The middle southern states also have problems with their weed prices and not only that, but finding the bud is extremely difficult in the first place.
If you happen to live in a spot that has decently priced bud as well as good quality, don't take it for granted. There are people that struggle to find something to smoke every single day. As legalization continues to take strides, the price of legal weed will hopefully level out, letting stoners smoke without endangering their bills. But even if they do't, stoners will always find a way to smoke if they really want to, even if that means saving spare change to buy a gram.
Alligator Found Guarding Weed
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 30th 2014 by THCFinder
Remember in Grandma's Boy when the dealer friend says that he's getting a lion to protect his shit from being stolen? Well something similar was found in Castro Valley, CA when cops found a five food long alligator keeping watching over 34 pounds of cannabis. The alligator, named Mr. Teeth, belonged to Assif Mayar, a 32 year old parolee. The police entered the house as part of a routine parole check in and found the alligator in the bedroom. When found, the alligator was in seriously poor health, as you can imagine if it was being kept in a small apartment bedroom.
Mayar told officials that he bought the alligator in 1996 in honor of rapper Tupac Shakur and was using the animal to deter marijuana thieves. Mr. Teeth was kept in a plexiglass container and would become incredibly irritated if the enclosure was approached by any humans. It seems like the alligator was trained to dislike humans. Sgt, J.D. Nelson was part of the investigation and said that while pit bulls tend to be the normal guard for cannabis stashes, an alligator is extremely rare.
Mayar ended up getting booked for possession charges, as well as the sale of marijuana. The alligator was taken to the Oakland Zoo and was put in the veterinary clinic on site. However, Mr. Teeth unfortunately passed away. Keeping such an animal in an enclosed space is definitely not okay. A dog makes sense but an alligator needs to be in the wild, hunting and being able to grow to it's full potential. A five foot long alligator is a huge animal, probably weighing at least two hundred pounds. Don't keep alligators to guard your weed.
Marijuana Poisoning In Pets On The Rise
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, January, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
All animals possess THC receptors in their brains, allowing the body to process the chemical and use it to it's advantage. But while humans are able to take large doses of THC, animals can't handle the large amounts that we can. That's why it's extremely important that you keep your animals away from your medicated treats, avoid leaving flowers or concentrates where a pet could get them, and obviously never blow smoke in your pets face. Animals are meant to be our companions. If you're smoking up with an animal, you could be putting your furry friend at a high risk of bad reaction to the marijuana.
Since 2009, calls to the Animal Poison Control Center have drastically increased by about 30%. A veterinary clinic in Boulder, CO states that they see roughly one case of a pet that had ingested marijuana. The majority of these cases are accidents, although if the animal was given marijuana on purpose, the sheer embarrassment and stupidity of their actions is enough to deter anyone from admitting that. An emergency veterinary clinic in La Mesa, California says that they see at least one or two cases a week. The uncontrolled doses of marijuana can cause effects that resemble drunkenness. Mostly effecting dogs, the animal sometimes even staggers around wetting itself. Yeah, the reaction is that severe.
Since edibles are highly concentrated, due to the fatty acid that has absorbed the THC (usually butter or oil of sorts), they are the most dangerous form for animals. An owner can turn away for a second and a sneaky dog can scarf down a medicated cookie without their owner even knowing. Not only that but a lot of edibles are made with chocolate, raisins, and other ingredients that aren't good for dogs. We all know that pets should eat chocolate. So a double reaction, both to the sweet treat and the cannabis can be extremely devastating, sometimes even fatal. Raisins are also quite dangerous for dogs, causing kidney failure.
The best advice I can give? Unless you're working with your vet to give your animal measured, doctor recommended doses of cannabis, then your pet shouldn't be ingesting it. Even if you're just trying to make them feel as awesome as you do when you're high, they don't handle it like we do and it's best to keep them away from your stash. Don't leave edibles where a pet can get them and don't leave buds, dabs, or any other form of marijuana within reach of animals.
East Coast Dominos
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, January, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
I know that I constantly bring up the east coast/west coast battle and the absurdness of it. Unfortunately it is a huge divide in the cannabis community. The elitist California attitude is ultimately frustrating, especially since we're all supposed to get along. Everywhere can have good weed and everywhere can have bad weed. It just depends on who you know. But while California may still be basking in it's head start, officials believe that the east coast is going to enter the cannabis industry extremely fast, following the Colorado/Washington standard of marijuana.
Former Long Island Representative, Patrick Kennedy, is one of the nation's most driven anti-cannabis supporters and is making claims that "legalization of marijuana is moving fast in parts of the US and it looks as though the domino effect could quickly move towards other states such as Vermont". How could states resist the allure of such stacks of money? With the potential of such great gain, a lot of states are rethinking their laws regarding the plant, in order to hopefully make the same amount of revenue that Colorado is making.
What it comes down to is that the east coast is right on the west coast's coattails. The measures all face some serious odds. Since politics are all about popularity, a lot of politicians think that allowing such a measure to pass would reflect them as being easily swayed and supporting a nation of pot smoking people... Doesn't really sound like such a bad thing, does it? Of course, politicians are continuing to use the same airy arguments, like marijuana is a gateway to harder substances and that it's the wrong message to send young people.
Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin says that they just want to get drug dealers out of the state, leaving the marijuana market to be controlled by the government. Of course, the idea the legalizing will completely eliminate the black market is a shifty one, seeing as how the marijuana tax is so high. If dealers have lower prices than the clinics, there is a strong chance that people will continue to buy from street dealers. At least the east coast is getting somewhere. We will hopefully see more states continue to rethink their laws as marijuana gathers support.
