Cannabis is Key to Good Health When We Eat it vs. Smoke it

                            It is no secret that our world is seeing a huge increase in poor health and cancer cases. It should come as no surprise when we look at what we eat daily, the condition of our environment and the types of body care products we use daily that contain a ton of cancer causing agents. Mainstream medicine suggests that chemotherapy and radiation are the best means to go about treating cancer, but there is a growing body of evidence to suggest there exist much better cures. Cannabinoids may…

Outdoor Cannabis Growing Reminders

                          Search for an area where you would like to grow weed. This is the most critical thing you need to do. Pick out a location where the sun is consistently exposed. The most typical locations growers pick out are their backyards, rooftops, and greenhouses. First, you may consider a backyard. A backyard may perhaps be the most readily available among the three. If you opt to have your garden in your own backyard, there would not be a problem relating to giving the plants adequate good care and focus. You will generally be cognizant of the most recent changes in them. You will be aware at once if they are struggling with dehydration, mold, or insect infestation. A second option is a rooftop. A rooftop is good for the ones that would like…

Hemp is Effective in Cleaning Nuclear Disasters

Most people, especially cannabis advocates, understand that hemp is an incredibly diverse and useful plant, which produces thousands of products, even things like hempcrete – concrete made almost exclusively from hemp, which is actually stronger than typical concrete. However, few people understand how useful hemp can be in something as drastically important as cleaning up nuclear disaster sites. Recent research has indicated that hemp is one of the most useful plants we have for phytoremediation, which is the process of cleaning areas suffering from nuclear contamination, by using plants to absorb the toxins out of the soil and water.  …

Study: Hemp Seed Oil May Help Multiple Sclerosis Patients

The consumption of legal hemp seed nutritional oil, in conjunction with the intake of evening primrose oils and a restricted diet high in Hot-natured foods (such as pepper) and low in saturated fats and sugars, is associated with “significant improvement” in symptom management and immunological characteristics in subjects with multiple sclerosis, according to clinical trial data published this month in the scientific journal BioImpacts.

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper Changes Stance on Cannabis, Says Legalization Can Work

To say that Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has been less than enthusiastic about presiding over the legalization of recreational cannabis in his state would be quite an understatement. During campaign season last fall,he called legalization “reckless.” Of course, that opinion hadn’t stopped him from courting  funding from NORML for his re-election. His inability to take a firm, positive stance on something with a broad base of support in his state has been frustrating for cannabis activists, in Colorado and elsewhere. In a pleasant turn of events, it looks like Hickenlooper may have finally come around on the issue of marijuana legalization. On…

California State Appellate Court Rules That Concentrates Count as Medical Marijuana

An important state appellate court decision was just announced that may have just set a major precedent in how California cannabis law will view concentrated forms of THC. Until now, hash makers and lovers alike felt as though they were operating in a very, very grey area of California’s 18-year old medical marijuana laws. But on Wednesday of last week, one man’s day in court gave Cali’s cannabis enthusiasts a rare occasion to cheer. Back in 2013, a 22-year old named Sean Mulcrevy was serving probation and was subsequently searched by a Cameron Park sheriff’s deputy. Even though he presented…
