Do you Dab?

It's become a daily occurrence. Customers visit Hugs Alternative Care, a medical-marijuana dispensary in Sacramento, Calif., and ask for "dabs."
 
They are referring to butane hash oil, an especially potent form of marijuana, also known as "honey," "honey oil," "wax" or "earwax" because of its sticky, amber-colored appearance.
 
"We don't carry oils or waxes," Hugs manager Cathy Romer tells them.
 
Nevertheless, it's clear that the demand for dabs is out there.
 
The marijuana industry's latest "it product," dabs has been moving from the fringe into mainstream consciousness for years, although many card-carrying medicinal-marijuana users and even some law-enforcement officials know little about it.
 
High Times magazine featured dabs on its July cover, teasing it as "pot's most powerful high." Vice — the media company that recently accompanied Dennis Rodman on a diplomatic trip to North Korea to meet Kim Jong-un — has released a mini-documentary on the subject.
 
What makes dabs unique is the concentration of THC, the chemical that gives pot users a high. Donald Davies, a former manager of Sacramento dispensary Canna Care, said dabs can be 70 percent THC, compared with high -end cannabis plants, which register between 15 percent and 25 percent.
 
Dab makers soak cannabis in butane or alcohol to extract THC from the plant. After collecting a liquid, they boil off the butane and the remains solidify into what looks like tree sap. Users then "dab" or prick the waxy substance with a needle to pick it up, place it on the tip of a special pipe and ignite it with a small blowtorch to release fumes.
 
Products loaded with THC have been available for decades, carrying the name hash oil or honey oil. But even "regular, old-school hash" was often limited to 50 percent THC, Davies said. The use of butane makes the difference.
 
Addison DeMoura, a co-founder of the cannabis-analysis lab Steep Hill in Oakland, Calif., said dabs' potency benefits many of the sickest patients who cannot smoke cannabis to manage pain and help with appetite.
 
Many collectives are selling more butane hash oil than weed, he added.
 
"If a patient cannot smoke and needs to get the medicine, they can simply put BHO into a cup of tea and consume it that way," he wrote in an email. "The fact that the product is a concentrate makes it easy to infuse and consume. Dabs are part of the progress and the future of consumption."

Vaporizer marijuana use popular with teens

Smoke shops selling everything from colorful bongs and pipes to incense and earrings line an entire block in Manhattan's East Village, a neighborhood popular with teens and the college crowd, and a magnet for young people from all over.
 
I found the G-Pen, a top-of-the-line vaporizer, for $90. They're used by patients who are prescribed medicinal marijuana so they can have the benefits without harmful smoke or the tell-tale odor. They're also used for aromatherapy.
 
Because they look like pens or electronic cigarettes and are discreet, they're becoming more popular with teens.That concerns Dr. Alan Ravitz, the director of Forensic Psychiatry at the Child Mind Institute.
 
The G-Pen's main website offers a vaporizer kit called The Game / G-Box, which is currently sold out. It's named after the popular rapper The Game, who is currently the star of his own VH-1 reality show. He's in his 30s, but appeals to a younger audience.

Tips on How To Be A Stoner

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 31st 2013 by THCFinder

So hopefully some of these tips come in handy for you all and if you have any tips of your own, feel free to email (missbotwin42o@gmail.com) them to me so I can prepare for a second round of stoner secrets!

teally-high-people-(28)

1. Ladies, nail polish is a flammable substance. Beware of lighting bowls while in windy areas or in moving cars with the windows down.

2. If you think you’re going to get hungry, make a healthy snack a head of time. I don’t know about you but I love pizza more than any other food and it’s just SO convenient when I’ve been smoking for hours…

3. Don’t fake inhale. I’ve had so many “friends” that blow through my weed because they don’t actually inhale it in to their lungs. While ghosts and tricks are cool, if you’re just going to spew spit and smoke all over the place after you take a hit, give up before you start, ESPECIALLY if it’s not your weed!

4. Corner the bowl! If you get caught torching the whole bowl by sticking the entire lighter right in to their center, someone is going to take away the bowl and you will be in sober quarantine because no one wants to smoke with a noob.

5. Learn to roll… And learn to do it well. People are always impressed with dope rolling skills, even more so if you can produce a strawberry banana split blunt covered in keif. There are some crazy blunt wrap flavors out there and when I smoke a lot of blunts, that combination was always my favorite. But yes, learn to roll and you will have captivated the hearts of all of your stoner friends.

6. Try not to fall asleep. Everyone has a limit of how much they can smoke before they curl up in to a ball and fall into a deep sleep. Know your limit and when you think you’ve had enough, just say pass. If someone calls you names for doing that, you have every right to tell them off. While smoking yourself in to a coma is totally acceptable when it’s 1am, it’s not so much when you’re at a friend’s on his couch.

7. Don’t sit on the joint. It’s cool that you’re sharing the hilarious story of how your best friend got hammered and fell in a shallow river last weekend but there are other people in the room that want to get high and you’re roadblocking them.

8. Carry a bottle of water with you at all times, especially when your going to hang out with friends and smoke. When you take a hit and cough for days, it’s easier to have a bottle of water right next to you than attempting to ask someone for a glass of something.

9. Always clean the bong water after smoking! That water in there gets nasty and can begin to grow mold if you let it sit for too long. It’s not that hard to dump the bong out and refill it. Plus, how good to fresh water bong hits taste? There’s an insane difference between clean and dirty bong water.

10. If someone smokes you up, you are not allowed to complain about the quality of the weed. Someone is nice enough to share their stash with you. If the weed isn’t the dankest dank, at least you’re with good people.

Remember, you can submit stoner tips to me via email for my next round of stoner tips. I hope that you took something away from this list that you didn’t know before and that it benefits your smoking experience. Stay blazed!

The NFL's drug testing double standard - marijuana vs. HGH

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
nfl-marijuana-issuesANDERSON, IND. — This is a column about two drugs, one recreational, one that’s a performance enhancer.
 
And it’s a column about the strange double standard that exists in the National Football League and all of sports.
 
On the one hand, you have LaVon Brazill, who tested positive twice for marijuana and will be suspended the first four games of the season.
 
On the other hand, you have human growth hormone (HGH), a drug that’s more prevalent in sports than anybody wants to admit. The NFL Players Association has been taken kicking and screaming into the first round of tests this training camp.
 
To his credit, Brazill came clean (in a matter of speaking) Monday morning at Colts camp, laying out the simple calculation in front of him.
 
“It’s either money or marijuana,” Brazill said after the team’s training-camp walk-through. “I know any one of you would choose money any day. That’s gone. I’ll choose money any day.”
 
It’s really that simple, isn’t it?
 
Regardless of your world view on marijuana decriminalization or legalization, the fact is, it’s still illegal, it’s still tested for and it’s still a strike against you in the eyes of the NFL. One more positive and he’s done for a season, and maybe for his career.
 
Money or marijuana?

Study Finds Marijuana Grow Operations Do Not Significantly Affect Child Development

A new study found that the health of children is not significantly affected by living in houses where marijuana is grown, a conclusion that challenges current child care policies.
 
The University of British Columbia study examined the effects of living in cannabis grow operations on about 180 children and did not find significant differences between the children living with marijuana and the children in a controlled setting, according to The Weed Blog.
 
The study aimed to analyze the merit of the laws that enable child protection services to strip parents of their children, founded in the belief that the presence of marijuana can harm a child’s health, according to the International Journal of Drug Policy. 
 
Parents have lost custody of their children — both temporarily and permanently — because of contemporary marijuana laws relating to child care, according to the Daily Mail.
 
Some parents and marijuana rights advocates have claimed that even the possession of small quantities of weed have allowed law enforcement officials to move children to foster care and to entangle parents into child-neglect cases, according to the New York Times.
 
Advocates have said parents who lose their children to foster care for different time periods sometimes face no criminal charges for possession, just those for child neglect.
