What Would a Trump Presidency Mean For Cannabis?

4

As more candidates announce their campaigns for the 2016 presidency, we couldn’t help but wonder what each politician’s presidency would mean for the state of cannabis in the U.S. Some candidates have openly shared their thoughts on cannabis while others are a little more shifty. For example, we know what Bernie Sanders would do for America if he became President – he emphasizes end the War on Drugs, decriminalizing cannabis nationwide, and helping reduce the prison population. Other candidates, like& Chris Christie, for example,would crack down on cannabis and even go as far as enforcing federal law in states with legal medical marijuana or…

Oregon Court of Appeals Doesn’t Find the Smell of Cannabis Smoke to Be “Unpleasant”

3

Earlier this summer, I wrote a Weekend Weirdness post about how the city of Pendleton, Oregon wanted to fine its residents up to $500 for any offensive cannabis smells that float over from their property onto someone else’s. The issue prompted a tongue-in-cheek letter to the editor of the East Oregonian calling for the city to also fine smelly farts. Instead, the Oregon Court of Appeals decided that the odor of burning cannabis does not actually smell that unpleasant, after all.  Last Wednesday the appeals court issued a ruling on the matter, disagreeing with some folks’ assertion that the smell of cannabis is equal to…

If a Wildfire Spreads to a Cannabis Field, Can You Get High from It?

5

It’s been a dry summer for much of the United States, leading to an increase in wildfires that can’t easily be fought due to droughts in areas like California. But what happens when a wildfire spreads to a cannabis field? Would the ensuing blaze result in an impressive contact high for anyone in the surrounding area? Well, there was that one time an Indonesian police force burned a bonfire’s worth of illicit drugs in West Jakarta and the resulting fumes made the locals a little headachey, but did they actually get high, meaning they experienced the psychoactive effects from the activated THC? Live…

5 Promising Cannabis Studies That Explore How Cannabinoids Interact with the Human Body

2

International Cannabinoid Research Society’s (or ICRS) recent 25th annual symposium proved to be a great place to share ideas and learn from a wide variety of highly accomplished scientists in the area of cannabinoid research. The 4-day conference was highly diverse, covering everything from novel chemical cannabinoid entities, to quality control methods for cannabis, to non-THC cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) and CBG (cannabigerol). Here are the 5 most promising studies that were highlighted. Remember, as with any scientific conference, it’s important to enter with an open mind to accept new ideas or to extend your understanding of previously held beliefs after critical evaluation. As…

Dealin’: Organized Labor Wants Its Piece of the Cannabis Industry

6

Cannabis was good to Debby Goldsberry. The time she spent in the late 1980s and early ’90s following the Grateful Dead on tour, passing out photocopied fliers that agitated for marijuana legalization, led to a high-paying career. After California legalized medical cannabis in 1996, Goldsberry cofounded one of the state’s first major marijuana businesses, Berkeley Patients Group. One of the most successful dispensaries in Northern California, BPG grossed more than $15 million in sales in 2009. That year, Goldsberry earned $263,299 — less than her fellow cofounders and co-executives (both men), but still good money, considering her job’s illegal origins…

Why the Media Can’t Get Its Story Straight About the Amazing Medical Potential of Cannabis

1

Judging from the disparate media headlines, last week’s meta-analysis of cannabinoid research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) contained something for everyone. Here’s a sampling of the mainstream media’s seemingly schizophrenic coverage: Toledo Blade: Studies support marijuana’s role for medical needs Sun-Journal: JAMA study finds scant evidence that medical pot helps many illnesses HealthDay: Evidence supports medical pot for some conditions, not others Los Angeles Times: Most uses of medical marijuana wouldn’t pass FDA review, study finds Yahoo.com: Huge review shows what medical marijuana may (and may not) help So what was the review’s actual takeaway message in regard to the…

The Medical Minute: How Does Cannabis Impact the Progression of ALS?

6

Based on some exciting new anecdotal evidence, the use of cannabis oil to treat ALS may actually prolong the life of the patient in addition to relieving many of the disease’s devastating day-to-day symptoms. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the baseball legend, is a debilitating disorder that affects an estimated 30,000 people in the United States at any given time. You might remember ALS from that craze last summer when everyone decided to dump ice on their heads to raise awareness for the disease and to raise money for ALS research. Even Leaflyhopped on…

Does Cannabis Use Automatically Make You an Unfit Parent? The Government Seems to Think So

4

The role of cannabis in a responsible parent’s life has unearthed some uneasy questions that many people find uncomfortable, and too often the knee-jerk reaction to discovering that a parent either responsibly consumes recreational cannabis or relies on medical marijuana is that he or she is an unfit parent and role model to raise children. It’s a dangerous response that has ruined countless lives and torn families apart over the course of the War on Drugs, and despite the U.S.’s increasingly softened stance on cannabis, many families are having their children removed from their care over simple possession charges, medical…

What is Limonene and What are the Benefits of This Cannabis Terpene?

3

Have you ever wondered what gives strain like Super Lemon Haze, Chernobyl, and Tangie a sweet citrus aroma? That’s limonene, an aromatic cannabis terpene produced in the flower’sresin glands as well as in many everyday items like fruit rinds, cosmetics, and cleaning products.Terpenes are fragrant oils secreted alongside cannabinoids like THC and CBD, and these terpenes not only dictate the smell of marijuana, they can also modify its effects.

Limonene’s Effects and Benefits Limonene has a history in medicine, so it…
