John Oliver Rips Apart Federal Marijuana Laws

7 Apr

Posted by: Michelle Pancake

This past Sunday John Oliver ripped apart the dated issue of marijuana remaining illegal at a federal level. Oliver used the classic satyrical humor of his HBO late night show ‘Last Week Tonight’ to truly defend reason, highlighting just how widely marijuana is accepted by the US population yet remains criminalized under federal law.

He sharply pointed out just how ridiculous it is that marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, while at the same time 8 states have fully legalized and 28 states have legalized medical marijuana. The majority of US States have some form of legalized marijuana, and on top of that a Gallup pole shows over 60% of Americans favor legalization.

This inconsistency between the public’s opinion and federal marijuana laws really raises the question, what is keeping the federal government from decriminalizing marijuana? Thank you John Oliver for so clearly articulating the dissonance many of us already feel about federal marijuana laws; that the future is green, and federal laws need get with the times. Looking for some Green?

You may be wondering, if Marijuana is legal, why do I still have to vote for regulations?

Though prop 64 made cannabis legal, it still requires local governments to create legislation dealing with local taxation, regulations, and enforcement before any recreational shops can open.

Check out this article published today by LA Daily News, as it details why it is still so important to hit the polling places next month on March 7th.  It differentiates Measure M from Measure N, explains how marijuana laws are currently positioned under Proposition D, and why it is so important to vote for Measure M for fair and responsible regulations in Los Angeles.

Vote YES on Measure M! Cannabis Regulations for LA

21 Feb

voteyesmeasurem

While recreational marijuana was made legal with Prop 64 last November, it didn’t detail who can grow, sell, and run pot businesses in Los Angeles. Measure M does this by providing thoughtful and fair taxation, enforcement, and regulations crafted by cannabis business-owners and City Council collaboration. The Los Angeles Times just released an informative endorsement ARTICLE supporting Measure M, which will be on the LA Ballot in two weeks Tuesday, March 7 2017.

Measure M is the only measure supported by the larger marijuana industry and City Council alike. We urge everyone to vote for Measure M because it lays out an inclusive, responsible, and comprehensive plan for marijuana laws and regulations in Los Angeles.

Measure M gives the city of Los Angeles the power to replace Proposition D, a now outdated and restrictive marijuana law, with new regulations. It also gives City Council the power to tweak and change regulations as necessary, allowing smooth adaptation of the marijuana industry to this community.

Under Measure M, the local Los Angeles gross receipt tax would go down from 6% to 5% for medical cannabis, be set at 10% for recreational cannabis, and set at 1-2% for delivery, transport, research, and cultivation of cannabis.

Measure M would also apply civil and criminal penalties to those who break the laws. The department of Water and Power is authorized to shut off utilities in illegal pot shops.

Measure N (as in No!) is another marijuana regulation initiative on the ballot however it is no-longer supported. It unfortunately remains on the ballot due to timing, as it was too late to remove from the ballot. Measure N excludes most existing marijuana businesses and delivery services, hindering access to medicine, and ultimately failed to gain support. Use caution while voting, however, as the two measures will be close together on the ballot. Be sure to choose Measure M.

Don’t forget to send in your vote-by-mail, or go to your local polling place Tuesday, March 7th to vote YES on Measure M to bring LA comprehensive marijuana laws! Only two weeks until voting day!

THE END!

How to Medicate with Hash or Wax

5 Jun

How do you medicate with Bubble Hash, Hash Oil, Shatter, or Wax?

hgh extracts

Warm It, Don’t Burn It:

Bubble Hash, Hash Oil, Wax, and Shatter are better consumed by controlled heating rather than burning. Cannabinoids vaporize at 356ºF (180ºC) so it is unnecessary to heat them up to the point where inhalation might burn the lungs. It is easy for a long term smoker to simply pack a concentrate on top of a bowl, but this isn’t a viable choice for a patient who is suffering from a smoking aggravated lung condition.

However one study indicate that Cannabis may help with certain lung conditions.

A 2002 study found that cannabinoids appear to stabilize breathing in sleeping patients. So even if smoke inhalation isn’t optimal for lungs in the long term, studies indicate cannabis imbibed in a different manner can be helpful for breathing conditions.

What do you do if you want your concentrates without smoking them?

Hand-Held Vaporizers:

Vapor pens are a fantastic, portable way to take concentrated medication. Vapor pens, pre-loaded hash oil cartridges, honey oil syringes, and other forms are all available to current patients through the Goddess website. They look exactly like e-cigarrettes, so are easier to use in uncertain social situations.

Refills are available in a variety of strains and flavors which include Indicas, Sativas, CBD, and Hybrids.

Stationary Vaporizers

Standing vaporizers like the Volcano are powerful options for patients with at home medical needs, and most can be utilized for hash, oils, and waxes. Even vaporizers which are intended for use with dry bud can be modified for use with certain concentrates.

However, when it comes to simplicity, stealth, and mobility – hand-held vaporizers are a more multi-use choice.

Eat it

Concentrates are powerful when eaten.

However, they aren’t guaranteed to taste good.

Oils can be melted or mixed into drinks or food. Some patients have tried eating them straight by using a toothpick to scoop up small doses. Other patients go a different direction and make their their own edibles with Ganja Goddess Butter or Ganja Goddess Oil.

Our Mint Meltaway chocolates are edibles that are made with CO2 extracted medication.

With any method, patients trying a concentrate or edible for the first time should consume with caution in a comfortable environment. Use in small increments until the appropriate dosage is understood.

Direct Application

Some patients have called in and reported taking concentrated CBD or Hash oil and applying it directly to the area in question, for example in the case of skin or prostate cancer.

Goddess Delivers could not find any scientific studies supporting the effectiveness of direct application. Please let us know if you find any!

Dabbing

Wax, Shatter, and Hash Oil can all be dabbed. The process refers to taking a small portion of the concentrate and heating it on a hot surface, such as a nail or knife, and inhaling the vapor.

It is similar to vaporizing and is an effective method for medicating with shatter and waxes.

If a patient needs to medicate in a public or business environment, using a portable e-pen vaporizer might be a more discrete choice than dabbing, but that is entirely up to the medium used.

New Patients are Welcome

The Goddess Delivers knows that medicating can be a daunting task for new patients with no experience with medical marijuana. We’re here to serve you. If you have any questions that can’t be answered by these articles, please feel free to call in and speak to one of our representatives.

We won’t give you medical advice, but we will offer our personal opinions.

Talk to your doctor to see what medication is right for you.

Hash vs Kief vs Wax?

6 May

What is the difference between the different types of concentrates?

Kief

Kief is an unprocessed raw medication.

Particles of trichomes that fall right off the plant are collected and packaged into this powerful product. It is concentrated and fluffy in consistency. Often placed on top of bowls or joints, Kief is often used to increase the potency of the inhalation. This method of use is most effective for patients with extreme pain or physical discomfort, whose condition requires the most powerful result possible.

Hash

Human use of hash, both recreationally and medicinally, has been dated back to 3,000 BC. Purified stalked resins glands (the same as kief), also known as tri-cones, are compressed with heat. Water purified hash is known as “bubble hash” and has a paste like consistency that varies widely in color and texture.

It’s high THC content it is most effectively utilized through a vaporizer.

Hash comes in a variety of forms, including Bubble Hash and Hash Oil.

Bubble Hash is a solid, sometimes crumbly form of the medication, easy to manipulate as it holds it shape. Hash Oil is more fluid, making it easier to apply when it comes in a syringe.

Hash Oils are processed in a variety of different ways, including cold water, butane, and CO2 processing. With CO2 extraction, pressure is applied to carbon dioxide to turn the gas into a liquid which is then used as an inert liquid solvent. When the temperature is brought back up the CO2 evaporates, leaving behind clean and solvent free medication.

One of our favorite solvent free oils is the HGH solvent-free.

Wax

Processed with methods often involving butane, wax is a dense paste from yellow to dark brown. Butane processing involves first infusing dehydrated cannabis with butane then purifying with hot water immersion or a vacuum pump. It is a highly concentrated form that is broken off in small chunks to smoke.

Wax is difficult to use in a dry bud vaporizer due to the fact that it often melts when exposed to temperature. There are specific vapor pen cartridges that have heat coils inside them that are more optimal for vaporizing wax.

Why use concentrates?

Kief, Hash, and Wax all come from the marijuana plant and are powerful forms of medication. The differences range in how they are created, from the raw Kief to extremely processed Wax.

Talk to your doctor to see if concentrates are right for you.

420 – The Origin Story

20 Apr

Macro_cannabis_bud
In the 70s the athlete spoke the word and the word was 420.

The term originated with a treasure hunt.

A group of high school athletes coined it when they took trips off into the forest to look for a hidden marijuana patch theoretically abandoned by a Coast Guard service member. The followed their treasure map, loaded their pipes, and went on adventures that would define language and expand communication.

They never found the patch.

Instead their forays into the wild found the gold in a term that launched a new national holiday. April 20th is the day that consumers celebrate a plant. With uses in textiles, nutrition, eco-fuel, and medication, it’s no surprise that this life sustaining plant has earned it’s own holiday even in the face of federal prohibition.

Yet hemp has been a part of humanity long before the failure of prohibition.

Evidence of hemp use has been found as far back as 2,000 BC.

That means that cannabis could be one of the original crops.

Cultivation of crops is how early humans moved from tribes into cities. Higher food production capability led to a denser population which led to increased scientific research and technological advancement. Modern society wouldn’t be possible with the development of agriculture.

Carl Sagan wrote: “It would be wryly interesting if in human history the cultivation of marijuana led generally to the invention of agriculture, and thereby to civilization.” (Carl Sagan, The Dragons of Eden, Speculations on the Origin of Human Intelligence p 191 footnote)

If cannabis was one of the original crops, as suggested by archeological finds, that would mean that it evolved with humanity. That would mean it’s genetic biology adjusted over time to best suit our needs for nutrition, healing, and textiles.

So what is the point of 4/20?

It isn’t just about getting high.

April 20th is the day we celebrate the joy of life and the evolution of human enterprise. It is a step towards a growing economy that is sustainably in alignment with scientific advancements in medicine and comfort. It is a day when medical patients take the time for gratitude for legalization.

4/20 is a day when we are grateful for nature.

It is a day we celebrate our symbiosis.

CBD without the THC

8 Apr

This opinion article is based on the cited research and is not offered as medical advice. See the provided resources for more information. Talk to your doctor about what medication and dosage is right for your condition.

Looking for a CBD medication without the THC?
GuruDevInstagramShot
The Guru Dev CBD is the first tincture we’ve found that offers a huge dose of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC. This has it’s upsides and downsides. Both CBD and THC cannabinoids have their medical benefits, they’re just useful in different cases.

What is CBD?

CBD, like THC, is a cannabinoid that is a natural component of cannabis.

The cannabis plant produces CBD. It is a crop that shows evidence of being cultivated by humans for textiles, nutrition, and spirituality as far back as 2,800 BC. Scientists have recently studied the CBD element of the plant to test it as a preventative and possible healing aid for a variety of ailments.

What is CBD useful for?

CBD does not get you high.

There currently exists preclinical research, some of which is sponsored by the US government, that suggests that CBD has anti-spasmodic, anti-convulsive, anti-psychotic, antioxidant, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective effects. (See below for research citations and links).

CBD also activates serotonin receptors, which leads to a gentle anti-depressant effect.

Research into the medical properties of CBD are piling up, making it impossible to argue against this potentially life saving, positive side effect, all natural medication. Yet CBD can’t do it all. Dr. Sean McAllister’s research at the Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found CBD to reduces breast cancer cell proliferation, invasion and metastasis by inhibiting Id-1 gene expression.

His best results happened when he combined CBD with THC.

The Goddess Delivers also provides medications with a healthy balance of the two cannabinoids, such as our 35% CO2 CBD Hash Oil and our Cannatonic CBD strain.

What is THC useful for?

THC gets you high, which is a medically beneficial effect.

One of the common uses of THC is an anti-nauseant for cancer patients going through chemotherapy, which contains cellularly destructive chemo drugs that make it difficult to maintain a healthy appetite. The Catch-22 of the situation is that the body needs proper nutrition to make it through the difficult process of chemo.

THC is used by chemo patients as an appetite stimulant and anti-nauseant.

Along with it’s uses for minimizing the negative side effects of manufactured drugs, the THC found in the nature provided cannabis plant has been used for pain relief and sleep aid in different countries throughout human history. The uplifting side effects of sativa strains are often used for creative stimulant and a general state of well being and happiness. The relaxing and sleep aid side effects of indica strains are often used for pain and muscle relief.

Since the 1950s, these effects have been vilified in US media and law.

There are many speculations as to why this happened, though the strongest arguments lie in the fact that at the time the plant was widely used to create a variety of environmentally sustainable products. The illegalization of cannabis removed a powerful economic competitor. Lucky for patients, this stigma against valuable medication and economic stimulant has faded in the face of scientific evidence and government studies.

Why use a product with only CBD and no THC?

Patients that use CBD only products like the Guru Dev CBD Tincture make that choice because of their medical needs. They are often concerned about the psychoactive effects of THC which can cause interference in everyday activity in patients that are not used to them. CBD only products offer medical benefits with a mild mood stabilizer without the stigmatized “high”.

For serious pain relief, a CBD only product will not work as well.

Indica vs Sativa vs CBD

23 Jan

What is the difference between Indica, Sativa, and CBD heavy strains?

CBD – Cannabidiol

CBD is one of the 85+ cannabinoids found in cannabis. Unlike THC, on average it has no psychoactive properties. Current medical studies suggest that it has medical applications to conditions such as epilepsy, anxiety, bipolar disorder, nausea, convulsion and inflammation, and multiple sclerosis spasms. It has also been observed inhibiting cancer cell growth.

In layman’s terms, CBD is more medical and less intoxicating.

Sativa

Unlike CBD, the term Sativa doesn’t always refer to a balance of cannabinoids in the plant. The two terms Indica and Sativa refer to differences in genetic breeding. Sativa dominant marijuana strains tend to grow taller and thinner, with a grassier smell to them.

Sativa strains are thought to be better for mental cognition.

Effects attributed to Sativas include:
Energy to accomplish tasks
Creative stimulation
Positive thoughts
Clear mind

Patients report using Sativas strains when they need medication during the day and need to be productive in a variety of environments. The chemical composition of Sativas generally are higher in THC with little to low levels of CBD.

Indica

Indica dominant strains tend to be shorter and thicker, better for confined spaces such as indoor grows. They often have a sweet or sour oder. Cannabis Indica have a broader thicker leaf that distinguish them from the Cannabis Sativa plant.

Indica strains are thought to be better for physical pain and relaxation.

Effects attributed to Indicas include:
Treatment for headaches and migraines
Relief from spasms and seizures
Reduced Anxiety and Stress
Pain relief
Relaxation

Patients report using Indicas when they need to go to sleep at night and don’t have to be highly functional. The chemical composition of Indicas are generally made up of moderate levels of THC and CBD.

6 Steps to Becoming a Cannabis Connoisseur

12 Dec

Cannabis tasting is a sophisticated process.

Similar to wine tasting, Cannabis evaluation is based on the complex elements of it’s texture, appearance, strength, and flavor. The composition of the soil that nourishes the plant, the cleanliness of the air, the temperature shifts throughout the season all influence the final qualities.

So how does a Cannabis Connoisseur evaluate quality?

Step One: Keep a journal.

With each new strain record the effects.

Each individual patient reacts to the medication differently. No two bodies are the same. They act and react to medications in personal ways. So it is up to the doctor and patient to work together to find the right balance. It is also up to the collective member to take the time to learn which plants fit their needs.

Keeping a dedicated record is the best way to optimize the experience.

Step Two: Vaporizing.

Some of the flavor are lost in the burning process. For full enjoyment of the tasty trees, vaporization is a cleaner way to evaluate the complexity of cannabis. Vaporizers come in a variety and shapes and sizes, including ones that can also serve as e-cigarrettes such as the Gentleman’s Brand Vapor Pens.

Step Three: Categorize

Wines can be labeled into broader categories, such as Reds and Whites, then smaller ones such as Cabernet or Pinot Noir.

The larger categories for marijuana are Indicas, Hybrids, Sativas, and CBD heavy strains.

For smaller groupings you can label them by genetics, such as Thai Stick, Purples, OG Kush, or Afgany, but there is so much crossbreeding that the strains are constantly benefiting from diversity and evolving into stronger and more effective medications.

Another classification is the individual’s interpretation.

This can include the full range of fruit flavors, such as grapes, citrus, blueberry, melon, strawberries, etc. It can also include savory elements such as honey, coffee, woody, tea, etc. There are also qualities that might not be quite as appealing, such as hints of chemicals, diesel, or ammonia.

Products such as the Ganja Goddess Capsules can’t be categorized by flavor, but they can be organized based on their effects.

Step Four: Engage the soft palate

When tasting, use deep breaths to inhale slowly and deep into the solar plexus, focusing on bringing the medication to every corner of your respiratory system.  Breathe out through both the nose and mouth so that the pallets of both scent and taste are activated at the same time. Exhale all the way, attempting to make the exhale even longer

Step Five: Space them Out

Proper wine tasting involves spitting the wine out, so that the evaluator doesn’t get drunk. Excessive intoxication desensitizes the taster to the subtleties of the strains. So for more accurate evaluation of the effects of each strains, the patient should follow the recommended dosage instructed by the doctor.

Step Six: Share Your Knowledge

Share your knowledge online with your collective! Post comments to this blog or email us your findings so that we can parse them out to the rest of our members.

The more knowledge we share, the more we have together.
