    Weed For PTSD?

    Weed For PTSD?

    Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, most commonly known as PTSD, has long plagued veterans. Whether it's flashbacks, nightmares, or something more sinister, PTSD has been a definite mental health problem that veterans have dealt with for decades; in the early 1900s, the closest thing to PTSD would have been what was commonly known back then as shell shock. Shortly after that, it was known as that or battle fatigue, and then PTSD became the standard term for anyone who deals with the burden of trying to cope with what may have been seen in an operational theater such as Iraq or Afghanistan.

    Benefits of CBD Oil

    Benefits of CBD Oil

    Until recently, the study of the positive effects of marijuana has been relatively overlooked, as have the benefits of cannabidiol, or CBD oil, a non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Besides the still-evident stigmatization of cannabis, specific government legislation and funding constraints have made it all the more difficult for scientists to focus on CBD research.

    Rise and Fall of Cannabis Culture in Amsterdam

    Rise and Fall of Cannabis Culture in Amsterdam

    Years ago, if you imagined a place that embraces unrestricted self-expression, a place unencumbered by narrow-minded norms and conservative legislation, what might have instantly popped into your mind was: Amsterdam. Amsterdam is still a choice destination in Europe that allows people to enjoy the many hedonistic pleasures that life has to offer. They have the most progressively liberal laws and have continued to blaze the trail in enactment of legislation that accommodates diverse interests–euthanasia, gay marriage, legal prostitution, and cannabis among others–which make Amsterdam a place for everyone.

    Mushrooms In Bali

    Mushrooms In Bali

    It is that time before dawn when the sky is still dark. Awakening to the sense that the sun is coming, feeling the chill of the wind that travels round the earth with the sun, I rise, smelling the scent that says morning is here. The birds outside feel it and sing their songs to it.
