Things That Separate Weed Noobs from Weed Veterans
In stoner culture, there are a lot of unspoken rules. One of them, which I will speak of now, is that you should never have to pay cash for your first joint. Another is that you always pass the joint around, even if you don't like that person.
10 Health Benefits of Juicing Cannabis
There are so many ways you can use cannabis. From smoking it, to baking it in edibles, and even eating it raw, like some people do, people find ways to incorporate cannabis in their diet. While certain people find simply smoking it to suit them the best, there are others who can only gain the benefits of cannabis by eating it in baked goods. But have you ever thought of juicing cannabis?
The Hypocrisy of UK Marijuana Laws
Ah, the UK. Great Britain. Good old Blighty. Home of tea obsessions, crumpets, queuing etiquette, Yorkshire puddings (savoury,) and Spotted Dick, (sweet dessert,) poor dental hygiene, plummy sounding vowels and Hollywood villains.
The Benefits of Hemp
So lately, the world—yes, the world—is all about legalizing weed, which I am totally OK with. The thing is...everyone is so hung up on the medical side of this, which, in itself, is good. What about all the benefits of hemp, though? These benefits are things we should also be looking into for an example, and I will delve deeper into some others, but an example would be creating a combustible fuel using hemp. What? Don't you think that's possible? I think some research should be done on your half, because this is completely possible. Just look up Henry Ford's all hemp car that ran on hemp fuel and was completely made up of hemp made steel, which is stronger than our normal steel.
Benefits of Microdosing Cannabis
Like a newly rendered version of the ancient "tea break," microdosing only recently began to sweep across the culture of marijuana consumption, delivering a newfound method of not only getting you higher than a space shuttle, but rendering yourself protected on both mental and physical fronts (for far longer than even your natural high). As all things marijuana, be careful before you attempt microdosing on your own. While I may be using evidences and various concepts found from prolonged research, it's still a tested concept that needs a little more professional insight by industry leaders before it's actually set into stone. Plus, cannabis illegality weighs heavily upon scientific data and progress in adapting consumption methods of marijuana.

Stoners: The Architects of Medicinal Cannabis
It’s 7am on a blustery Tuesday. I’m in peak flare and I can’t stop throwing up. I don’t want to go to the hospital—they can’t do anything for me anyway, this is just my Crohn’s and Fibro acting exactly like they do. I made the mistake of trying to clean and now can’t make it upstairs to bed by myself and have to wait. My husband, who works a night shift, is racing home with something he thinks will help.
Cannabis Tourism in Canada
As Canadians and the rest of the world await this coming summer when Canada will become the 1st G20 Country to legalize cannabis for recreational use, there are some things the “herbal tourist” should know before booking their weed trip to the Great Green North!
Great Ways to Conserve Your Weed Stash
The trouble with Mary Jane is she's so damn expensive! There are plentiful ways you can conserve your weed stash, from cutting down on smoking in general to switching up how you smoke. It’s as simple as knowing how much you want to conserve and how willing you are to save your marijuana. Dankruptcy is a real concept and an important thing to avoid when you're just beginning to enter into the cannabis industry, or even if you're a long time subscriber.
DIY Smoking Devices You Can Make with Household Items
Did you know that smoking weed pretty much requires only three valuable elements? These would be air flow, or oxygen, pyrotechnics, or simply a controlled flame, and earth (or, Mary Jane, that is). While you don't always need it, there is room for the good ole H2O, especially if you're attempting something like a gravity bong or DIY bubbler. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to design them, but understanding how they work before delving into your own highdea labors ensures immediate success and limited injuries. As I'm sure you can see, all of those elements (besides maybe fire) are relatively abundant and acquirable with absolute simplicity. All you need now is a utensil, tool, catalyst, or homing beacon, if you will.
The Trouble With Mary Jane
Introduction With many people around the world smoking Cannabis for the purpose of pain relief of all types, one can easily see that it provides very clear benefits. Though, as with all forms of medication, there always arises a high chance of encountering undesired side-effects. The most well-known detriment smoking marijuana can have on an individual: the weakening of synapses in the hippocampus, an area of the brain crucial to memory formation. You can read more in thearticle "How marijuana makes you forget," published by the journal Nature in 2012. Having said this, it shocks me to see how quick some misinterpret marijuana as a "golden bullet" of sorts, and the level to which people promote its disproportionate use.
