All about Marijuana and Health.
What Makes Hash Oil Good
With marijuana becoming legalized worldwide, it is not surprising to see the stunning evolution it has taken. But one of the most exciting advancements in the cannabis community goes to hash oil. Although it still derives from the original form of cannabis flowers, hash oil yields higher potency when it comes down to ingesting thc.
Mushroom Scientist Paul Stamets Interview
The simplest and least informative way to describe Paul Stamets is that he is a scientist who studies mushrooms—a mycologist. But like the visionary engineer Buckminster Fuller before him, Stamets is a fountain of constant, innovative thought; his revolutionary view of the world is testament to his comprehensive understanding of applied design within dynamic systems. Stamets shares his intensive fascination with the fungal kingdom through his many books, published papers, patents, and deep online presence. He has advanced the field of applied mycology and research while at the same time forging the craft of his science to reflect his greater holistic views. Over the years, he's also grown a dedicated global audience from the more fantastic claims he attributes to the powers of mushrooms and their kin.
Driving Stoned Experiment
Uber changed the lives of stoners. As marijuana becomes more accepted as a lifestyle drug, so does driving stoned. The precedent for the driving stoned experiment was set in 1978 by Car and Driver . They staged the Great Carry Nation Memorial Drunk Off, which was an attempt to test objectively the effects of alcohol on driving ability. That test broke new journalistic ground. Real live people familiar to millions of readers, drank real booze, had their blood-alcohol levels checked on a breath tester, and then performed a simple slalom test. The results were dramatic. Not unexpected, but very dramatic, and the original drunk-off story has been one of the most frequently requested articles from the archives of Car and Driver. First forays into the world of scientific research on the subject of driving stoned quickly revealed some problems. The biggest problem would be quantifying the high. In other words, how high is high, and when is a driver there? With booze, a blow into a breath meter and the degree of drunkenness, as determined by law, flashes on an app you can purchase online. The amount of alcohol in the blood is instantly determined. Not so with marijuana. The amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the stuff in pot that makes you high, can only be determined by sophisticated blood tests, and even then there is no legal determination of what constitutes a “legally drunk” toker.
Peyote is the Original American Trip
Peyote, known botanically as Lophophora Williamaii, is the great American high. For the past almost 5,500 years, Native American tribes of the Plains such as the Navajo, Comanche, Sioux and Kiowa, have used the spineless, tufted, blue-green, button-shaped cactus as the centerpiece of enhancing their religious rituals. It is known for its psychoactive properties when ingested.
Medical Marijuana for Dogs
As more and more states legalize marijuana for both medical and recreational use, America is experiencing an unprecedented marijuana business boom. The number of Americans in support of the legalization of marijuana is continually increasing. When asked why they support legalizing cannabis, many supporters claim the herb has exceptional medical benefits.
How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card
Ever since the growth in medical marijuana legalization across many American states, more and more people have been left wondering how to get a medical marijuana card. The use of marijuana for medical purposes seems to be a great alternative for those in need of relief from various medical conditions. It's use has hit mainstream films and TV series, and pop culture references to medical marijuana are abundant.
Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds
Despite the similarity in appearance to marijuana, hemp is an entirely different strain of cannabis. Hemp contains a much lower concentration of the active ingredient Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), present in marijuana, which gives weed its most notable mind altering effect. Studies have shown that this has been limited to less than 1 percent in the hemp plant, while marijuana contains a whopping 20 percent. So one can relinquish any fear they may have that they are daringly tip-toeing into the world of a drug addict, once they have consumed this hemp in any form.
What Are the Dangers of Synthetic Marijuana?
Imagine we could take a time machine back to before the political scene was so ridiculous. I'm not talking about a Trump and Clinton election, but rather the short-winded feud of the Obama/Romney election. Who could forget Romney? America's favorite handsome Republican nominee named after an important piece of baseball equipment. Romney, being the quintessential poster boy for American progress, had quite the stance on the evils of marijuana. In an attempt to argue against the advent of medical marijuana, Romney had only this to say: "People talk about medicinal marijuana. And you know, you hear that story that people who are sick need medicinal marijuana. "But marijuana is the entry drug for people trying to get kids hooked on drugs. I don't want medicinal marijuana; there are synthetic forms of marijuana that are available for people who need it for prescription. Don't open the doorway to medicinal marijuana."
Trippy Drugs of the Future
It is the future. Paul Reeves, twenty-eight, energetic, and successful, is the sales manager of a company that sells underwater real estate. He sits at his desk in his company’s offices in a steel-and-glass office park outside of Central Park, planning his day. On the walnut-veneered desk top, ready to be manipulated at finger-tip touch, are a computer and a TV-telephone console with worldwide communication facilities.
How to Beat the Marijuana Munchies
All of us who have ever smoked weed know about “the munchies," defined as that desperate craving for sugar and carbohydrates which can send otherwise sane individuals rushing out in the middle of a snowstorm to purchase candy bars and pizza. Obviously, one does not need to be a doctor to suspect that years of overloading the bloodstream with sugar can have a deleterious effect on a person's health. But how serious a health hazard is the munchies?
Can Cannabis Oil Cure Cancer?
With the legalization movement finally starting to make some headway globally, more and more claims are being made about the therapeutic properties of the world's most controversial plant, cannabis. But can cannabis oil cure cancer? Anyone's who's ever smoked a joint can attest to some of the less spectacular claims made by those who advocate it's medicinal use, aiding with sleep, relaxation and appetite. However, the most grandiose assertions about the cannabis plant are a little harder for the average user to relate to, most of all being the claim that cannabis oil can actually cure cancer.
Rise of Magic Mushrooms
British author Simon G. Powell is well known for his time spent studying psilocybin and its relationship with human society. Powell documented the history of mushrooms for an article in Weed World Magazine.
