Why I Do Not Smoke Or Vape, The Magic Butter Machine And A Perfect Cup Of Coffee

February 15th, 2024

I smoked for decades. Since 1966 and then since 1975 in Boulder. I got my education in the East, and then came West. My delivery systems ranged from joints and bongs, to a  coconut water pipe with the farmer of Negil on Xmas Eve some decades ago, and more. Hotels all come with rolling papers if you get stuck. The Gideon’s Bible has several blank pages in each volume, and it works fine. Then I read the list of the 100 plus chemicals that were added to my inhale by the combustion of the flower. While vaping was convenient, I had ongoing concerns. First, the cartridges, in a legal state (assuming... Read More

We are always looking for ways to take care of our physical health, whether it’s with a new supplement or exercise routine, or simply living a better lifestyle.

Recently, a show aired on Viceland called “Bong Appetite.” It is all about cooking with weed and all the amazing recipes weed can be incorporated into. In order for weed to have it’s psychoactive effects, the THC needs to be prepared certain ways, but I am curious about the non psychoactive benefits of eating raw cannabis and if ingesting raw cannabis has medicinal benefits as many other raw herbal medicines.

Evidence is pointing towards weed being great for easing chronic pain, however, it can be overwhelming selecting the most effective strain. My research this week began with the question in mind, “ What are the best strains for pain, and is there scientific evidence to make a determination?” As of today, there’s no official database on the thousands of new strains being created when it comes to cannabis, but scientist, Mowgli Holmes is currently undertaking the huge task of marijuana DNA sequencing. According to an article in Newsweek, Holmes has collected close to 2000 different specimens... Read More

It consists of fat Endocannabinoids and their receptors, cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1), cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2), and the enzymes that regulate Endocannabinoid levels.

Cannabis and Kratom: Natural Medicinal Plants Demonized by the DEA

May 16th, 2017

In August of 2016, the DEA made an announcement that they would be rescheduling the herb Kratom as a schedule I narcotic right along with Cannabis.
