YG Launches Branded Strain Of Marijuana Called 'YG OG'

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, May, 12th 2011 by THCFinder
Marijuana is early fully accepted by society these days. In most states, medical marijuana dispensaries are everywhere. And, of course, hip-hop stars have their patient cards so they may take part in its availability.
However, not many rappers can boast what Compton newcomer YG has recently done, which is launch his own strain of weed.
The rapper, best known for his hit single "Toot It and Boot It," has been promoting his own branded marijuana strain called "YG OG," which he created alongside an Orange Country, California dispensary called Green Aid.
"Having my own weed makes me feel like the motherf***in'," YG said in a statement. "It gets you higher than every other weed."
Apparently, the idea of "YG OG" came about following a chance meeting with Green Aid's general manager, Brooks Johnson, who mashed out a deal to carry the strain exclusively at their dispensary, located in Anaheim, California.
According to Johnson, since Green Aid became carrying YG OG, it's been in non-stop demand.
"As soon as we featured the new YG OG medicine it became an overnight demand amongst our patients," said Johnson, who revealed that the store has already sold out, although new product would be back on shelves in two weeks.


Healing power of pot: Medical marijuana changes local man's life

Marijuana turned Chris Gee’s life around.
The 34-year-old Coleman resident was in two auto accidents in 2003. He had more than 13 surgeries to rebuild parts of his face, back and ribs. He was taking eight 80 milligram OxyContins a day, weighed nearly 250 pounds and was not the man he wanted to be.
After medical marijuana was legalized a friend told him to try it out, Gee said.
“Everybody would tell you today, ‘If you took that away from him you’re probably making the biggest mistake of your life’,” Gee said. “That was like a 180, I lost all my weight, I had the fastest recovery ever on one of my surgeries... I gained my life back, I gained my family back.”
Taking medical marijuana helped Gee start a business and stop collecting disability unemployment, he said.
After seeing the change medical marijuana could make in his life, Gee opened the first Twinn Bridges Compassion Club about seven months ago in Cadillac, he said. Six weeks ago he opened another Twinn Bridges Compassion Club in Midland County, 559 E. Isabella Road.
“We’ve done over 200 certifications in Midland alone,” Gee said. “There is no doubt in my mind you’re helping people.”
One person he helped is now one of his employees, an Everett resident who requested to go by the name Dee.
She was a massage therapist at his Cadillac store who has voluntary movement tremors; when she tries to move her hands they shake, she said.
“I was taking a prescription. It kind of just made me really, just, out of it, all the time,” she said. “Everything that (the doctor) would give me was just putting me to sleep. I didn’t like that anymore.”
Medical marijuana is a natural alternative to the chemical substance used in pills, Dee said. So it eliminates the potential problems caused to the liver, stomach and kidney by prescription drugs.
She, like Gee, began reading a lot about medical marijuana once she saw its impact on her life, Dee said.
The compassion club offers several strands in bulb and edible form, Gee said. One large area of business is people who come in to try a different strand and see how it treats their symptoms, since it could take them months to grow the plant on their own.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced today that Israel Cavazos, 38, of Bakersfield, was sentenced Monday by United States District Judge Anthony W. Ishii, to 42 months in prison to be followed by a term of three years of supervised release. On January 25, 2011, Cavazos pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute marijuana.
This case is the product of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Kern County Sheriff’s Office, Bakersfield Police Department, Southern Tri-County High Intensity Drug Task Force, and the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen A. Servatius is prosecuting the case.
According to evidence introduced at the sentencing hearing, Cavazos worked as a manager for Nature’s Medicinal Inc., a business engaged almost exclusively in distributing marijuana.

All Healing, No High: San Jose Medical Cannabis Collective Offers High-CBD Medicine

San Jose, CA
Medical marijuana is known as an effective treatment for many ailments, but it's also known as a psychoactive agent. For people who could benefit from the medicinal properties, but need to stay alert and focused, San Jose medical cannabis collective, Elemental Wellness has good news: high cannabidiol (CBD) strains deliver the benefits without the buzz.
The most powerful medicinal compound in marijuana is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has been shown to be helpful for a range of diseases such as glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and side effects of chemotherapy and AIDS treatment such as nausea and loss of appetite. But THC is also responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis, and while many patients benefit from a sense of reduced anxiety and mood elevation, other users experience drowsiness, altered perception of space-time, sensory alterations, and disorientation.
Luckily, another compound found in cannabis, CBD, has many of the same healing effects of THC, but doesn't have its psychoactive effects. Studies have demonstrated CBD's effectiveness in relieving pain, convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea; inhibiting cancer cell growth; and treating schizophrenia, among other things. Many breeders are creating strains of medical cannabis with higher CBD content for patients who need the medical benefits, but don't want the high.
"We want to provide our patients with as many treatment options as possible, and the advancement of CBD strains allows us to do just that," says Elemental Wellness Executive Director, Ariel Loveland.


Need for weed: Seniors smoking marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 6th 2011 by THCFinder
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.  --  There is a growing trend of seniors lighting up and smoking marijuana because they believe it is better than their prescription drugs, with less dangerous side effects.
"I call it the new don't ask, don't tell," said Amy Cavinaugh.
Cavinaugh started using marijuana five years ago after having a double mastectomy from breast cancer. She used the illegal drug to fight off nausea from chemotherapy.
"I did find it to be very effective," said Cavinaugh.
At the time she was living in a retirement community in Ocean Ridge called Crown Colony, and behind the gates, she says more seniors are using pot than you might think.
"I knew people who were 90-years-old and 70-years-old and were getting it from their children or grandchildren," said Cavinaugh.
The topic of medical marijuana is taboo. Those who use it usually bake with it. Smoking is too smelly and obvious and rarely is it discussed openly.
"It's very common and if they are sitting around having a cocktail hour they will talk about it amongst themselves," said Cavinaugh.
"I have the dubious honor of being America's longest serving prisoner in federal prison for a non-violent marijuana offense," said 68-year-old Robert Platshorn.
Platshorn served a nearly 30 year sentence. He was released three years ago and moved into the 55-and-over community of Golden Lakes in West Palm Beach.
"After a week or two playing tennis and meeting people, they began to come to me one by one," said Platshorn.
People would tell him they use medical marijuana to help with everything from arthritis to terminal illness. One 72-year-old man asked Robert for help because his wife was suffering from MS.
"He begged me, he said please I don't want to go to the street, if I go to the streets to find marijuana and I get arrested who is going to take care of my wife," said Platshorn.
Platshorn felt helpless, so he's now creating the Silver Tour. It is a seminar targeting seniors teaching them about medical marijuana. His goal is to create a large voting block that will support it at the polls.
However, attitudes are already changing. Last month the Pew Research Center asked people about medical marijuana, overall 73 percent are in favor of legalizing it. 77 percent of 50 to 64-year-olds support it and 63 percent of 65-and-older want it legal.
"I have met people from all different walks of life using it," said Platshorn.
