NFL to Study Medical Marijuana Potential With Football Player’s Union

Uncategorized
The NFL’s longstanding hostility to marijuana use among its personnel could soon be relaxed, as the league and the union representing players have agreed to study cannabis as a method of pain management. As part of the agreement, the league and the NFL Players Association will participate in two committees designed to provide guidance on the matter; the study will also include an examination of the use of prescription drugs by players. “I think it’s a proud day for the NFL and the NFLPA to come together on these issues in a very public way,” Allen Sills, the league’s chief medical officer, told the Washington Post in an interview this week. “I think it demonstrates the spirit of cooperation we have around our health and safety issues. … Both of these committees are about providing

Texas Senate Advances Medical Marijuana Expansion Bill, Rejects Inclusion of PTSD

Uncategorized
Medical marijuana patients scored a tentative win on Wednesday when the Texas Senate passed a revised version of a house bill that would add several qualifying health conditions to the state’s requirements for access to medical cannabis. Now individuals with all forms of epilepsy, seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis, spasticity, ALS, terminal cancer, autism, and incurable neurodegenerative diseases would be able to access to the medicine with a doctor’s approval under House Bill 3703. Previously, the state’s Compassionate Use Program only allowed people with severe forms of epilepsy to access the drug. For all medical marijuana patients, the legislation cuts the requirement of two licensed neurologists for entry to the program in half. “This bill is about compassion,” commented S

UK Talk Show Hosts Under Fire For Cutting Off Conversation With Cannabis Advocate

Uncategorized
Fans of the UK morning talkshow This Morning are blasting its hosts for cutting short a segment featuring Charlotte Caldwell, a UK mother who has been at the center of a national controversy surrounding medical cannabis. Caldwell appeared on the show to discuss her ongoing difficulties accessing life-saving cannabis medication for her son Billy Caldwell, who suffers from a severe form of childhood epilepsy. But This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby abruptly ended their conversation with Charlotte Caldwell, turning instead actors who play doctors on the popular UK soap opera Doctors. Fans viewed the quick end to Caldwell’s heartfelt presentation as derailing an important conversation about life-threatening illness and propping up the anti-drug stigmas surrounding med

El viaje del cannabis: de la tierra al aceite

Fuego orgánico en la montaña No es secreto que el Triángulo Esmeralda, en el norte de California, ha sido el campeón reinante de la producción de cannabis en los Estados Unidos durante décadas. Sin embargo, con la llegada de la marihuana recreativa legal a California, las reglas del juego han cambiado. Los productores ahora están obligados a cumplir con las restricciones de legalización, sin perder de vista el objetivo: crecer una gran cantidad de marihuana. Para muchos de nosotros, esto es un soplo de aire fresco, literalmente, ya que los fertilizantes químicos y los pesticidas ya no volarán gracias a las pruebas de laboratorio. Si eres nuevo en la agricultura o en la transición de prácticas agrícolas no orgánicas, cultivar orgánicamente es el ideal más alto que un agricultor puede

The High Priestess: How to Connect to and Embody the Elements

Uncategorized
Are you ready to get wet, hot, and steamy this summer? We just experienced the transformative release of the Full Moon in Scorpio, and now we’re inching closer and closer to the peak of the year on the Summer Solstice on June 21st. Spring has sprung, and now we’re officially in Gemini season, the air sign represented by the glyph of the twins. This is a season of creativity, communication, collaboration, union, and expansion, where we get to embrace the freedom of air and its need to transform.   For this installment of the High Priestess, I was inspired by my current muses: the elements. Earth, air, fire, water, and spirit exist in nearly every spiritual tradition in some form. These elements speak of the physical, natural world around us, as well as of the subtle, spiritual world.

Canada Pledging $24.5 Million to Fund Research on Cannabis and Health

Uncategorized
The Canadian government wants to learn more about the health benefits and risks of marijuana use, ponying up a significant amount of money to help support research. On Wednesday, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research announced it would be dropping roughly $24.5 million to bolster cannabis research. The money will help support 26 projects throughout Canada “that cover topics such as the use of cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) oil for the treatment of pain and anxiety,” according to a press release from the agency. Additionally, the CIHR said the funding “will also support research teams that will explore the therapeutic potential of cannabis in areas such as cancer, chronic pain, and neurodevelopment.” “We are investing in research to provide the evidence needed to maintain po

Utah Cannabis Cultivators May Be Required to Pay Over $100,000 in Fees

Uncategorized
In what could be one of the most convincing financial arguments for the legalization of recreational marijuana yet, the state of Utah has announced that cannabis cultivators will face a licensing fee from between $75,000 to $100,000. “The program has to be self-sufficient and pay for itself,” said Andrew Rigby, who is program manager for the state’s marijuana industry. Utah’s Department of Agriculture and Food, the cannabis industry’s regulatory body, has estimated that legalizing medical marijuana will cost the state over $563,000 in 2020. All the same, at the current fee rates, applications and licensing has been forecasted to bring in $1.1 million. Regardless of the math, such high fees will certainly present a challenge to small marijuana businesses without a lot of capital wit

Cincinnati City Council To Vote On Marijuana Decriminalization Today

Uncategorized
Wednesday afternoon, Cincinnati City Council is scheduled to vote to decriminalize marijuana possession by adults 21 years and over within city limits. The vote will take place at Cincinnati City Hall. Last week, a majority of council said they supported marijuana legalization, suggesting that the decriminalization vote will likely succeed. But council will have three decriminalization plans to consider and choose from: one that would follow other Ohio cities by limiting possession to one ounce, and two others that would set limits much higher while also eliminating fines, jail time and court costs for possession offenses. Cincinnati is About to Become the Twelfth Ohio City to Decriminalize Cannabis On Monday, Cincinnati Councilman David Mann unveiled a plan to permit adults 21 and ...

The 2019 High Times Hydro Report

Uncategorized
Another year flashes by and we arrive back to the annual “High Times Hydro Report”—a place of learning for those interested in growing crops of buds without soil and for those already eyeball deep into cannabis water culture.  Why Grow in Water? Say what? Of course plants need water. Yes, but they don’t need soil! In hydroponics, an inert growing medium—if any is used at all—replaces the soil. All of the necessary elements or nutrients that a cannabis plant uses to complete its life cycle are supplied in a nutrient solution.  The word “hydroponics” is from ancient Greece, and it literally translates to “growing with water,” or, in this case, with a nutrient solution. There are plenty of advantages to growing with water. Here are just a few. Rockwell cubes allow plenty of oxy
