Top Tips for Shopping Your Local Cannabis Dispensary in Seattle

Cannabis-Dispensary-Seattle

Visiting a cannabis dispensary is a great place to source all the cannabis products you need, but you may not be getting all the benefits you could from this experience. Check out these three tips to make the most of your next trip.

Talk to the Budtenders

No one knows the products carried by the dispensary as well as those who work there, and it’s wise to share what you’re looking for when one of the sellers offers you assistance. Save time by allowing them to show you the joints, edibles, tinctures or vape aligned with your goals for relaxation or pain relief. 

Be Open-Minded

Today’s cannabis users are fortunate to have a broad range of strains available, and your dispensary is a great place to try something new. Because these products are selected by the dispensary staff, you can have a high level of confidence that these strains are worth your time and effort to explore.

Join a Loyalty Program

If your local shop offers any kind of loyalty program, you could enjoy all kinds of perks by participating in it. Benefits often include special offers and discounts, which makes trying new strains or products even easier. Loyalty program members may also get advance notice about new cannabis products and the opportunity to share feedback used in deciding what to stock in the shop.

Cannabis Lotion Recipe: Your Choices in Seattle

cannabis lotion recipes seattle

Topical body care products enhanced with cannabis are a popular way to achieve greater relaxation and pain relief. Lotions, salves and body butters are a great way to use cannabis discreetly and with no tell-tale odor. If you’re interested in learning more about developing your own cannabis lotion recipe, here are some easy suggestions.

Use the Body Care Products You Already Love

The great thing about cannabis oil, concentrates and tinctures is how versatile they are. Many users of topical skin care products enjoy mixing oils, tinctures or concentrates directly into your favorite body butter, lotion or salve. 

Make Your Own Salve or Lotion From Scratch

For a basic recipe, gather coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax and a cannabis tincture. Mix the oils in a double boiler over low heat to protect the quality of your final product. Gently stir in the cannabis, then the beeswax until smooth. Cool the mixture for a cannabis-infused salve or add shea butter or cocoa butter while it’s still warm for a customized lotion. Once it’s cooled completely, transfer the mixture to sealable containers. 

Shop Your Local Dispensary

While perhaps not technically making your own, buying pre-made cannabis lotions, body butters and salves has considerable time, quality and financial benefits. Experimenting with homemade recipes takes time and guesswork to identify the ideal proportions for maximum effectiveness, which can be expensive when buying high-quality cannabis tinctures and concentrates. A reliable dispensary offers quality and selection.

Double Chocolate Chip Cannabis Cookies

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

It’s starting to feel a lot like fall, the combination of school starting and the cloudy (hazy) look outside. Because of the wild fires all around Washington and Oregon we are stuck in doors trying to pass the time. This is literally the perfect time to try a new tasty chocolate chip cannabis cookie recipe ?.

This recipe will come with an overview of how to make chewy, mouth watering chocolate chip cookies and provide some additional tips that’ll help you bake!

[/fusion_text][fusion_title margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” size=”3″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=””]

WARNING… You Will Need to Make Cannabutter First!

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

The main ingredient in our chocolate chip cannabis cookies is cannabis-infused butter, or commonly known as cannabutter. This butter is how you will manage to get high while enjoying these tasty treats. Cannabutter does take some time to make but is very easy, we even have a free recipe.

Our 6 steps to yummy cannabutter should be completed before making these cookies or most other baked edible desserts.

Gathering Your Ingredients

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Once the cannabutter has been made, it is time to get our other cookie ingredients together. The difficult part is already over, the rest of this recipe is simple and easy to follow. If you follow our exact recipe you should be able to bake around 30 cookies in ~45 minutes to a hour.

Here are the necessary ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cannabutter (can add more: will make cookies more potent)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspon fine salt
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flower
  • 2 bag of different chocolate chips (you will use half of each bag)
    • 1/2 bag of Nestle semisweet
    • 1/2 bag of Hershey milk chocolate
  • Optional: 1 cup walnuts

 

[/fusion_text][fusion_title margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” size=”3″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=””]

Cooking Steps

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

With regular butter grease two cookie sheets or line your sheets with parchment paper. If you only have one baking sheet available, make sure to allow the sheet to cool down before adding another batch of cookies.

Step 2

In a small saucepan, melt the cannabutter about 3/4 the way done. I usually use the oven or microwave to melt the butter. Let the butter cool and reach room temperature.

In a large bowl, add your eggs, sugars, vanilla and melted butter. Whisk until the contents are smooth.

Step 3

In a second separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt. When the dry ingredients are combined, slowly stir the first bowls wet ingredients in with the dry.

Important: Do not over mix, this will change the texture of the cookies.

Step 4 

Add your two different types of chocolate chips and our option walnuts, if you so do choose.

Scoop about 1/4 cup of cookie dough, or a little larger if you’are like me and enjoy big cookies! Make sure to keep 2-3 inches between each cookie

Step 5

Bake your Double Chocolate Chip Cookies for about 12-16 minutes, but check frequently and cook to desired softness. The shorter you allow the cookies to bake the chewier they will be.

Additional Baking Tips

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

If you want the best possible cookies follow these three tips:

  1. Bake in smaller batches – reducing the amount of cookies that can get burnt and with more space they should cook evenly
  2. While baking, look for the first signs of “barely browned spots” this is when you should pull the cookies. Unless you want crunchy cookies!
  3. If time isn’t a factor refrigerate the cookie dough before cooking it. This helps soften the dough.

There ya have it! A recipe and fun activity to do while waiting for the sun to break the clouds!

Enjoy!!!

5 Little-Known Uses for CBD

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Cannabidiol, known to most as CBD, is one of 113 different cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD is a cannabis compound that provides a significant amount of medical benefits, while also not making users feel “stoned” like THC.

CBD is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains making it a more appealing of an option for those who are only looking to relieve medical issues.

Lets take a look at 5 uses for CBD that you might not have known about:

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

1) Reduces THC side-effects

THC affects users in different ways over time and with more usage. Some of the more common “negative” side effects of THC are paranoia, anxiety, social anxiety, and memory impairment. CBD consumption on the other hand has been shown in studies to counteract the negative effects of THC. For someone who enjoys the positive effects of THC but not the negative ones could simply go for a hybrid.

To learn more click here.

2) Cigarette Addiction 

In a 2013 study testing the effect of CBD on nicotine addiction was done by the Clinical Psychophramacology Unit in London, UK. This randomized double blind placebo controlled study was done to assess the impact of CBD usage in smokers who wanted to stop smoking.

24 smokers were randomized to receive an inhaler of either CBD (12) or placebo (12) for one week. After the week there would also be some continued follow-up.

The results were as shown:

What you see in the graph is that those who smoked the CBD inhaler decreased cigarette usage by ~40% and those who had the placebo had no significant change in cigarette usage.

You can read in more depth about this study here.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

3) Helps with Fibromyalgia

Studies have shown that CBD has effectively reduced pain better than the three FDA approved medicines for Fibromyalgia. The FDA approved drugs are Cymbalta, Lyrica and Savella. These drugs generate billions of dollars each but patients have long said the medications don’t work for them.

The National Pain Report came out with a study comparing these three drugs to CBD and how it helped those with Fibromyalgia.

Patients were asked to rate the effectiveness of each drug… Here are the results:

Cymbalta – 60% of those who tried the drug said it did not work, only 8% said it was very effective and 32% said it helps a little.

Lyrica – 61% said it did not work at all, only 10% said it was very effective and 29% said it helps little.

Savella – 68% said it did not work at all, only 10% said it was very effective and 22% said it helps a little.

CBD – 5% said it did not work at all, a whopping 62% said it was very effective and 33% said it helps a little.

The difference in these statesments is crazy. A drug is obviously not working if over 60% of people say they don’t feel a difference.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

4) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

One pillar of PTSD is an endocannabinoid deficiency, meaning the body stops producing enough to fill receptor sites, and this is where the cannabinoids found in marijuana play a therapeutic role.

The point of CBD treating PTSD is to reduce stress and anxiety. A veteran and current CBD user described his experience as such,

It helps with daily tasks like school, work and relationships. My mind races and cannabis helps me slow down and think through the trauma rather than hide from it. I can tell it’s helping me because my sleeping patterns are normal and I don’t have anxiety attacks.

There are many veterans who are trying to accomplish the same but aren’t allowed to use CBD. Dr. Mike Hart an advocate for the use of CBD, believes this isn’t fair for our troops coming home, not fair for them to not be able to choose how to be medicated.

Dr. Hart explains that PTSD is a learned fear and when you have more learned fear its going to induce a state of hypervigilance and that can also cause nightmares and terrors at night. CBD helps these veterans get through the night by reducing learned fears.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

5) Helps with Acne

A few causes of acne are stress and inflammation, it just so happens that CBD helps reduces both of those traits. Not only does it help reduce those receptors but the hormones conducive to outbreaks.

The Journal of Clinical Investigation and the Nation Institute on Health also found that CBD offers antiproliferative effects (meaning its able to stop the spread of cells) skin regenerating properties.

The study was based around the use of CBD on sebaceous glands, these glands are what secrete oily sebum, which is what obstructs your pores and causes outbreaks. In clinical studies CBD reduces sebum and in the process acne.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

Conclusion

This is only the tip of the iceberg for what CBD and other cannabinoids can do to help medical patients. There is still a long way to go to fully prove the effectiveness, but hey you have to start somewhere. 🙂

Homemade edibles can be a delicate activity that come with questions, for example:

  1. How am I supposed to know the strength of the brownies?
  2. Will I be able to taste the cannabis?

To answer these questions simply, everyone is affected by cannabis differently and there is no way to know for sure how you will react until you give’m a try. The strength of the brownies will be affected by the kind of cannabis and the potency of the cannabis used. The Cannabist, has written an article about how to calculate the THC in edibles.

When it comes to being able to taste the cannabis, we are positive that you will taste nothing but brownie goodness :).

How to Make Cannabutter in 6 Easy Steps

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Ever wonder how some people can make the perfect cannabis baked goods? The answer is simple and extremely easy to replicate. The baking pros use cannabutter, a cannabis infused butter that can be used for cookies, brownies, toast and so much more.

What you will need:

  • Single layer baking sheet
  • Medium sauce pan
  • 1 Quart of water
  • 4 Sticks of butter
  • 1 Ounce of your favorite cannabis (ground)
  • Cheesecloth
  • Plastic bowl/container

[/fusion_text][fusion_separator style_type=”none” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” sep_color=”#dddddd” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” /][fusion_text]

Steps for the perfect cannabutter:

Step 1

First, we must heat our cannabis to truly activate the THC, this is called decarboxylation. To do this, preheat the oven to ~240 degrees.

Next place the cannabis into a single layer baking sheet, make sure the sheet has sides.

Allow the cannabis to bake for 38-40 minutes, rotating the baking sheet a few times to ensure the cannabis is heating evenly.

This will cause the cannabis to become dry and very crumbly, this is how you know you are done with step 1 and getting closer to adding your butter!

Step 2

Grab your medium sauce pan and bring 1 quart of water to a rapid boil.

Once the water is boiling add the proportional amount of butter. Allow the butter to melt all the way.

For the purpose of this recipe use 4 sticks of butter. You will typically want to use 4 sticks of butter for every 1 ounce of ground weed.

Step 3

When the butter has melted completely, add the cannabis.

Reduce the heat to about the lowest setting, we should see a slight simmer. Let the cannabis simmer for about the next 3 hours.

This step is finished once the top of the cannabutter mix is glossing over and starting to become thick.

Note: A finished mix will not be watery!!!

Step 4

While the butter is simmering use this time to set up the bowl that will house the finished cannabutter. Use a heatproof bowl or plastic food container big enough to hold the contents.

Next, place a double layer of cheesecloth over the top of the bowl, make sure the cheesecloth is securely fastened down with string, elastic or tape.

Stick with me we are AlMOST DONE!!!

Step 5

Strain the cannabis butter over the bowl. When the pan is empty, undo the elastic, string or tape.

Pick up the cheesecloth from all four sides and squeeze out as much of the remaining butter as possible.

Allow the cannabutter to cool for a hour. Place in the fridge until the butter has risen to the top layer and is solid.

Don’t worry we are almost finished! I promise!

Step 6

Use a knife around the edges to allow yourself to lift the butter out of the container.

Place upside down and scrape off any of the remaing cooking water.

There you have it! Your professional do it your self cannabutter is now complete and ready for use!

Enjoy 🙂

The Nation Football League: When Will Pain Be Enough To Help The Players? 

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

The National Football League season officially starts this week with the first preseason game of the year. For majority of the country this is a time of excitement, as we get prepared to passionately watch our team and favorite players compete on the largest stage. But what happens behind the scenes is another story.

Over the last three decades the NFL has been giving their players a copious amount of dangerous drugs ranging from opioids to anti-inflammatory medication. Instead of trying to help make the game safer they have continued to mask the pain these players feel daily.

Newly retired All-Pro Offensive Tackle Eugene Monroe made buzz last year (March 9, 2016) as the first active NFL player to openly advocate for the use of cannabinoids to treat chronic pain and sports-related injuries. Lets just say the NFL didn’t appreciate this advocacy.

Eugene Monroe made headlines when he donated $80,000 to a group in Colorado that is studying the effects of cannabis on those who sustain multiple concussions.

Monroe wrote an article for The Players Tribune titled Getting off the T Train. The T Train? What in the world is that? Monroe describes it in this manner,

“Before kickoff on game day, in NFL locker rooms all over the country, players wait in line to drop their pants. We call it the T Train… The T Train is nothing more than a bunch of really large guys waiting to pull their pants down to get shot in the butt with Toradol, a powerful painkiller that will help them make it through the game and its aftermath.”

The use and distribution of Toradol is to make the players feel numb so they can take the punishment they are inflicted during the NFL season. Feeling numb causes more injuries than it protects, how are the players expected to know when they are injured if they can’t feel it.

 

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

NFL Drug & Toradol Abuse

In July of 2016, a California judge allowed a lawsuit filed by over 1,500 former players alleging that NFL teams have been illegally procuring and distributing painkillers for decades.

This is how the stories of Toradol abuse were first discovered publicly.

Former tight end Tory Sadowski has spoken out to SB Nation about how trainers and coaches handled this painkiller, not only endorsing the drug but saying it was good for him to use. SB Nation reports this complaint:

“In Pittsburgh, syringes full of Toradol were lined up in the locker room labelled with the player’s number. Mr. Sadowski was never told of the side effects of any of these drugs. In fact, he was told by a number of trainers that Toradol was good for his long-term health – it cleaned out his organs.”

Sadly, this isn’t a rare event in the NFL, even my favorite team the Seattle Seahawks have complaints from former players in the same light.

Retired offensive tackle Jerry Wunsch who played with the Seahawks from 2002-2005 is now involved in two lawsuits against the NFL. According to SB Nation, Wunsch alleges that in 2003, then Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren pressured him into taking painkillers before a game.

Coach Holmgren asked Mr. Munsch if he could play, to which Mr. Wunsch replied “I do not think so.” Coach Holmgren then called for Sam Ramsden, the Seahawks’ trainer, and asked “what can we do to help Mr. Wunsch play today.”

From the report Wunsch had allegedly been given Vicodin twice, once before kickoff and again at halftime, to make matters worse he was also given Toradol. Wunsch has claimed he received Toradol before every game and now has an unhealthy kidney with no family history of kidney disease.

Studying For An Alternative

For the NFL to truly care about the safety of its players it should exhaust every possibility, and leave no rock unturned. For the sake of this blog lets dive into CBD and the potential benefits it could hold.

CBD also known as Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD used to be called “hippie’s disappointment” because it doesn’t give you the high traditional THC would.

CBD Benefits:

  • Anti-inflammatory: Fights inflammation and pain
  • Anticonvulsant: Suppresses seizure activity
  • Antiemetic: Reduces nausea and vomiting
  • Antipsychotic: Fights psychosis
  • Anti-oxidant: Fights neurodegenerative diseases
  • Anti-depressant: Fights anxiety and depression
  • Anti-tumoral: Fights tumor and cancer cells at the stem cell

According to Dr. Suzanne Sisley member of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation (DFCR) board and president of the Scottsdale Research Institute, that they have found CBD to also play a role in neuroprotection. Dr. Sisley told the San Francisco Chronicle:

“The bottom line is that cannabinoids are clearly neuroprotective. We have preclinical data at the receptor level that cannabinoids and cannabis are not only involved with brain repair but neurogenesis, the development of new neural tissue. It’s one of the most exciting discoveries of modern neuroscience.”

This seems rather important in helping treat CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), which in a Boston University study was found in 99% of brains of former NFL players.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of healthiness

Football players just like anyone else deserve the right to be able to choose how to cope with their pain. They should be able to ask for second opinions and be given real research, instead of being doped up by their employers whom make millions of dollars every day in association to their pain.

Hopefully the NFL learns that times are changing, we no longer should wait for the status quo to break, we must attack this head on.

If the NFL truly cares about its players they must be proactive, not reactive.

CannaLaw in Washington is About to Change

What does that mean for weed in Washington State?

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

When we, as a state, helped pioneer recreational cannabis law in 2012, we already knew it wasn’t perfect. Without any other states as a model of how to safely legalize the herb, Washington did its best. But we always understood changes to legislation would come. And it’s beginning! Last month, Governor Jay Inslee signed Senate Bill 5131, offering the first set of legal adjustments to CannaLaw.

What’s new?

Quite a bit. From homegrowing, passing the pipe, and limiting advertising, get excited for new possibilities in the pot industry. Check out these changes to CannaLaw:

[/fusion_text][fusion_title margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=””]

Remember the old days of legal recreational cannabis? When twenty-one-and-uppers would get together, individually pull out their own supply of weed, roll their own joints, and smoke up separately together? Yeah, we definitely followed that law too. Up until recently, passing the pipe could have landed you in a sticky position legally if the wrong folks saw you.

But thanks to the new law changes, stoners are finally allowed to share their stock with other adults over the legal age. So spread the love with confidence and puff up with your pals–it’s legal now!

(Sometimes, it’s the small victories…)

Organic-esque Standards for the Conscientious CannaConsumer

[/fusion_title][fusion_builder_row_inner][fusion_builder_column_inner type=”2_3″ layout=”2_3″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” dimension_margin=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no” border_position=”all”][fusion_text]

Despite consumers’ demand of regulation on the pesticides and chemicals used on their cannabis products, as a federal organization, the United States Department of Agriculture cannot certify any cannaproduct as “Organic.” But many consumers feel it’s critically important to know how their weed was grown and cared for. SB 5131 lays the groundwork for Washington State to develop its own version of an organic certification, including the marketing term used for qualifying products.

This sounds like great news for several producers and processors in the state who have previously gotten into hot water for trying to follow the specifications of Certified Organic standards, which deviates from current Washington growing requirements.

It will still take time to create the certification program for the Washington CannaIndustry, but public input is encouraged. If you have an interest in participating on an advisory board, contact WSDA Organic Program at organic@agr.wa.gov.

Medical Patients Can Actually Get Starts, Clones, and Seeds

[/fusion_title][fusion_imageframe image_id=”2087″ style_type=”none” stylecolor=”” hover_type=”none” bordersize=”” bordercolor=”” borderradius=”” align=”center” lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” alt=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=””]https://thejointllc.website/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Clones.jpg[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_text]

Medical cannabis patients in WA have long known about the ridiculous Catch-22 in our laws: though qualifying patients have been legally allowed to grow from home, there has been no way for medical patients to get their hands on clones, starts, or seeds since recreational cannabis took over, besides a seedy sack of something bunk.

Now licensed growers and producers can sell seeds and starts directly to patients. Many patients have been waiting for the ironing out of this law loophole for years. No one quite understood how you were supposed to grow your own weed if no one was allowed to sell you the plant. Within the next year we’ll see patients regaining access to their medicine across the state!

[/fusion_text][fusion_title margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=””]

And it Won’t Just be Patients Growing from Home

[/fusion_title][fusion_imageframe image_id=”2089″ style_type=”none” stylecolor=”” hover_type=”none” bordersize=”” bordercolor=”” borderradius=”” align=”center” lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” alt=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=””]https://thejointllc.website/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Home-Grow.jpg[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_text]

Finally following in the footsteps of other legalized states which allow homegrows, SB5131 allows for the eventual, one day, maybe-kinda-sorta-it’ll-happen of non-medical patients producing their own pot in the privacy of their home. It may not sound like much (and for the immediate future, it isn’t), but it lays important groundwork to get us there.

By the beginning of December 2017, we’ll see the outcome of the state run study looking into the viability and practicality of legalizing recreational homegrows. We’ll have to wait and see how WA intends to regulate private growers, but it seems like personal grow operations are peaking over the horizon!

Easily the most disappointing aspect of the changing laws.

In an attempt to keep cannabis away from the kiddos, WA plans to crack down on advertising. That includes restrictions like banning cannabusinesses from advertising with things like mascots, inflatable dancers, toys, cartoon or movie characters, sign shakers or spinners, or anything else that could entice America’s youth. (There goes this author’s lifelong dream of sign shaking for a pot shop. Sigh.)

Other restrictions on advertising inlude restricting signs and billboards to only brand names or logos, no ads on or at public transit stations or vehicles, and no advertising to those outside of the state (sorry Canadians).

Are There Any Other Relevant Changes Happening?

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Yes! And irrelevant changes. But the most notable are these:

> Now business license owners in the state can hold up to five locations, where they could otherwise only own three.

> The State will also set up a study into the feasibility of allowing industrial hempwhich could be a major boon in the state’s ability to produce an affordable and renewable raw material for plastics, papers, fabrics, and other textiles. Hemp grows in a variety of climates and soil types, is naturally resistant to most pests, and grows very tightly spaced allowing it to outcompete most weeds. A natural substitute for cotton and wood fiber, hemp can also be pulped using fewer chemicals than wood because of its low lignin content. Its natural brightness can obviate the need to use chlorine bleach.

Medical producers and processors will no longer be allowed to blast oil using butane as a solvent. BHO-lovers, fear not: recreational producers can still use butane when they make their concentrates.

> PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries will now be considered qualifying conditions to receive a medical cannabis recommendation. (Finally.)

> A single housing unit cannot produce more than 15 plants, regardless of how many patients or designated providers live there. That sounds a little lame, but don’t forget: it doesn’t matter how many plants you have, it matters how large your yield is.

Cancer and cannabis have been connected for a long time. Though its Schedule One status makes cannabis hard to study, both anecdotal and clinical research have shown that cannabis can kill cancer cells.

Rick Simpson has been lauded for helping provide education and treatment with his recipe for high-cannabinoid dosed oil extracts designed to address myriad symptoms. Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, has helped countless medical patients find relief for years. But who is Rick Simpson? And how did he become such a leader in cannabis advocacy?

Rick Simpson was working in a hospital in Canada in 1997 when he fell and sustained a serious head injury. His doctors prescribed medication after medication, leading to symptom upon symptom and still more medications. His head grew cloudier with each added chemical and his symptoms never seemed to subside. His family and friends watched his light diminish and his faculties begin to fail.

After a while of suffering and struggling, Rick remembered he had seen research in the ’70s that indicated that cannabis could help mitigate some of the symptoms of his medications and condition. Though his doctors conceded that there could be potential, they still would not prescribe him the herb.

So, he sought it out illegally.

[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column_inner][/fusion_builder_row_inner][fusion_text]

Did it work?

            I think you already know the answer to that one. It didn’t just help ease the symptoms of his medications, it helped ease the symptoms of his condition! Through smoking cannabis daily, Rick Simpson returned to good health. His friends and family watched in amazement as he weened himself off every medication and his personality returned.

            But this wouldn’t be the last time Rick had to rely on the healing properties of the cannabis plant.

In late 2002, spots had popped up on Rick’s face and neck. By January, the doctors had surgically removed a spot next to his eye. The biopsy concluded: basal cell carcinoma—skin cancer.  They scheduled Rick for another surgery to remove the other two lesions.

But Rick couldn’t stop thinking about cannabis. He had long ago learned of cannabis killing cancer cells in mice. He had been told about a product called “hash oil.”

 

[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column_inner][/fusion_builder_row_inner][fusion_text]

            Taking the sticky, thick substance, Rick liberally smeared hash oil on the remaining two cancerous growths and covered them with Band-Aids. Four days later, Rick returned to the doctor.

The growths were gone.

The doctors were baffled, but agreed Rick was cancer-free! But when he told them he had treated his cancer with cannabis oil, they shut down. The receptionist even went so far as to begin shaking her head rigidly repeating, “The doctor won’t go there, the doctor does not prescribe [cannabis].”

Rick was baffled by the response. Here were medical professionals—who specialize in oncology—refusing to hear about a potential breakthrough for curing a devastating disease.

When he reached out to contacts from the Canadian Cancer Society and their only response was “The society does not endorse or support medical products or dietary supplements.”

After trying to work within the medical community to legitimize cannabis as a potential cure for cancer, Rick became a major advocate for access to the plant.

The Path of Advocacy

            By 2003, Rick had begun growing his own cannabis plants and processing it into hash oil. He had developed a recipe that provided the highest quality yield with the most consistency batch to batch. Reaching out to anyone suffering, not just from cancer, but from glaucoma, chronic pain, insomnia, blood clots with pain and swelling, hemorrhoids, arthritis and more, to provide free hash oil and education to anyone who needs it.

            Despite his outreach to help those suffering, the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) came for him. Raids confiscated over 2500 plants from 2005 to 2006.

  In 2009 they came after him again, raiding his property and claiming to have found 70 pounds of cannabis. How did they get such a radically high number? They included the weight of his compost, which did have cannabis plant material decomposing along with the rest of his gardening waste.

They also claimed Rick had weapons on the premises, which was actually a perfectly legal pellet gun. The best claim? Booby traps. Those were curtesy of Rick’s son, who had hammered nails through a couple boards and left the boards around the garbage on the porch. Because when you live in the woods in Canada, bears are a thing.

The charges were eventually completely dropped, but it still meant that Rick had to replant and start over several times—denying patients relying on his oil access to their medication.

What are terpenes? Where are they found? And what do they do?

Most seasoned stoners know that different strains of cannabis produce different effects. Some strains boost your energy and stimulate your mind. Others unlock unknown creativity. Still others can make your limbs tingle pleasantly or help you drift off to sleep. Often, the cannabis community uses terms like Indica, Hybrid and Sativa to differentiate between effects. But some experts have indicated that terpenes actually account for many of the effects and benefits of the plant.

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants. Basically, they’re everywhere. They give plants their distinct flavors and smells, like citruses, florals,  pine, or eucalyptus.

Terpenes makeup essential oils from plants and flowers. Western and alternative medicines use terpenes for their healing benefits. Aromatherapy, fragrances, and flavorings often use terpenes for scent and flavor and effect. Fun fact: Vitamin A is a terpene!

Aromatherapy works by targeting the specific effects of certain terpenes to affect the body in different ways:

  • Lemon and citrus can be stimulating.
  • Lavender tends to relax and calm.
  • Mint can help open airways in the lungs, benefiting respiratory function.

Terpenes in cannabis play major roles in contributing to the effects of each strain. Several factors can influence the development of terpenes like genetics, climate, soil type, age and maturation, and soil conditions.

Some terpenes also bind to the receptors in the brain responsible for the production of psychoactive effects, leading many to believe that terpenes play a key role in determining the high the consumer experiences. That means there are a lot of contributing factors to strain potency, beyond total cannabinoid percentage labels.

While THC content can certainly suggest a stoney product, terpene profiles also affect how stoney and the specific qualities associated with a strain. Some terpenes can modify how much THC passes through the blood-brain barrier–the more, the stonier. Certain terpenes can affect dopamine and serotonin by changing their production and destruction.

So how do you know which products will provide the stoney outcomes you’re looking for?

Check out this breakdown of commonly found terpenes, their characteristics, and their medical benefits:

*Note: Not every batch of any given strain will have high levels of these terpenes as they are subjected to variable growing conditions. The only way to be sure is through a lab’s terpene analysis.
