What’s in Your Stash? Autumn Saylor, Stay-at-Home Mom, Treating PTSD With Cannabis

What’s in Your Stash? Autumn Saylor, Stay-at-Home Mom, Treating PTSD With Cannabis

Uncategorized
Stay-at-home mom, Autumn Saylor, is a true New Englander. Born and raised in Massachusetts, she loves her Dunkin’ Donuts and her cannabis and coffee breaks, once the kids are off to school.  Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in 2014, from a traumatic incident she’d rather keep private, Saylor said she actually first tried cannabis at 17, long before the diagnosis. “I was handed a spoon pipe at a party and was so nervous!” she shared. “Of course, I had no idea what to do and it showed. I drew too much and it was long and harsh. I remember a lot of coughing, followed by a lot of laughter.” It wasn’t until 2015, when she was in her late 20s, that she considered cannabis in a medicinal way.

Study Finds Legal Cannabis Reduces Illicit Grows in National Forests

Uncategorized
Conversations about the effects of legalizing cannabis frequently focus on a few key issues: economic opportunity, social justice, the potential for new medical treatments, and other health benefits. What’s less talked about, however, is how cannabis legalization impacts the environment. Researchers have long documented the ways unchecked outdoor cannabis cultivation can strain resources and negatively impact the environment. And data from the U.S. Department of Justice shows that a significant amount of illegally produced cannabis is grown on federal lands— especially, national forests. But what if legalization was making a difference? That’s exactly the question a new, first-of-its-kind study set out to answer. Do cannabis-related policies have any effect on illicit grow operations i

Estudio encuentra reducción de la tasa de consumo de cannabis en adolescentes en estados con cannabis legal.

Uncategorized
Un experto especula que la legalización dificulta el acceso al cannabis para los adolescentes. Un nuevo estudio ha encontrado que la tasa de consumo de cannabis entre los adolescentes ha disminuido en los estados que han legalizado la marihuana recreativa. Los resultados de la investigación fueron publicados en línea el lunes por JAMA Pediatrics. Para realizar el estudio, los investigadores analizaron los datos de la encuesta sobre el uso de marihuana por parte de 1,4 millones de adolescentes de 1993 a 2017. Durante ese período, 27 estados y Washington, DC, legalizaron la marihuana medicinal, mientras que siete estados legalizaron el uso recreativo del cannabis. El estudio encontró que los estados con leyes que legalizan el uso recreativo del cannabis vieron una caída del 8 po

Someone Planted 34 Cannabis Plants in the Vermont Statehouse Flower Beds

Uncategorized
At least 34 cannabis plants were removed from a flower bed at the Vermont State House last week after a visitor to the state capitol in Montpelier reported their presence to law enforcement. Capitol Police Chief Matt Romei said, after the plants were discovered, that he was unsure if the young plants were hemp or marijuana and that groundskeepers on the property may have found more plants after the initial discovery. The chief added that he was not surprised that the cannabis plants found a suitable home in the well-tended garden that lines a walkway in front of the statehouse. “You could plant a 2-by-4 piece of lumber in there, and it would grow into a palm tree,” Romei said. “So it is totally not surprising that if somebody would put some marijuana seeds in there, they would grow

El cannabis y la salud mental: la esquizofrenia.

Uncategorized
¿Se puede tratar la esquizofrenia con cannabis? Esto es lo que piensan algunos expertos. Alrededor del 1.1 por ciento de la población mundial es diagnosticada con esquizofrenia. Según la Alianza de Esquizofrenia y Trastornos Relacionados de América, la esquizofrenia es una de las principales causas de discapacidad en los Estados Unidos, que afecta a 3,5 millones de personas. La condición de salud mental puede borrar los recuerdos de las personas de sus días, pasado e incluso su realidad. El SRDAA establece que la persona debe tener al menos dos de los siguientes síntomas para ser diagnosticados con esquizofrenia, y uno de los tres primeros enumerados es que una persona sufre de forma: IlusionesAlucinacionesDiscurso desorganizadoComportamiento desorganizado o catatónico.Síntomas ne

New Bill Ensures Some Retroactive Drug War Justice for New Hampshire

Uncategorized
Governor of New Hampshire Chris Sununu has played a key role in the crafting of the state’s medical cannabis legislation. On Friday, in the latest of a series of cannabis vetoes, he struck down a bill that would have eliminated a requirement that patients have at least a three month relationship with their marijuana provider. But on the same day, he did sign into effect HB 399, which will have positive repercussions for those with past cannabis convictions.  The latter will make it possible for those with past offenses concerning quantities of up to three-quarters of an ounce to have their conviction annulled. The legislation will apply to those whose offenses happened before September 16, 2017, the date when the state enacted sweeping decriminalization measures (becoming the last New E

El Método Pechoti: ¿Puedes poner marihuana en tu ombligo?

Uncategorized
Si bien hay quienes juran que lo mejor son los porros, los consumidores de cannabis continúan encontrando nuevas formas de ingerir la planta. Hay comestibles, tópicos, vaporizadores, bongs, sodas, toques y sublinguales, por nombrar algunos. Tal vez sean los poderes creativos del cannabis en acción. Un método de ingesta, conocido como el Método Pechoti, le pide que ponga aceite de cannabis en el ombligo. Si bien el método Pechoti ha ganado atención en línea recientemente, está lejos de ser nuevo. Si bien no está clara la fecha exacta en que se creó el método de Pechoti, sabemos que se utiliza en las tradiciones ayurvédicas, un antiguo sistema médico indio conocido como uno de los más antiguos sistemas de atención médica. Entonces, ¿qué es el Método Pechoti, cómo funciona y quién deb
