Marijuana Blog: Animals and Stoners Go Hand in Hand

StonerDays is the best marijuana blog on earth and we love animals worldwide! We know that stoners come in every shape and size from all walks of life and corners of the earth.

Chances are if you’re a stoner, your pet is too.

Canadian Cannabis Laws – The First G7 Country To Legalize

Canadian Cannabis Laws- The First G7 Country To Legalize 

BIll C-45 was passed to the house of commons early July- it will be the first of many passes between the two parties as Canada gets ready for the legalization of cannabis. There are many countries that have legalized the use of cannabis, although Canada will be the first G7 country to legalize nationwide. What makes Canada a G7 country and what is so fascinating about this place.

A G7 country is one of the “7 advanced nations” such as; France, Germany, Italy, Japan United Kingdom United States. These have the most advanced economies in the world. To pause here, cannabis use is legal in America, BUT America is not cannabis legal nationwide. Over 20 states are legal but, not all 20 plus states are legal for open use. Many of them are only legal for medical purposes.

Justin Trudeau

The Canadian bill was approved in the upper house, and is now sent back down to the House Of Commons where ot will be reviewed. Here is what we call the “bill dance”. The bill came with only 12 amendments & now has over 40 “potential” amendments. This bill will go back and forth until both parties are happy with the outcome. Something that is said to be done before July 1 2018. Will that happen? We are all questioning that part. One of the amendments is the number of plants you can grow in home.

Provinces Manitoba and Quebec

Manitoba and Quebec want to ban the number of in home plants to zero, in BC a few laws already exist, being a more lenient provence. Lenient as in Vancouver is known for its 4/20 annual event, as well as its many markets on the island as well as on the “mainland”. A few rules are. ( many provinces are also moving to these laws) No one under the age of 19 can have cannabis on them ( legal drinking age in BC and most provinces is 19). Cannabis can be publicly used in places where tobacco smoking/vaping is allowed ( some provinces want to ban public use completely). You can grow up to 4 plants in home.

Canadian Cannabis Legalization

Canada is the leading fastest growing country in the G7 – with the biggest metropolitan areas – Toronto Vancouver & Montreal. More than one- third of Canada’s population call these cities home. As a G7 country we are moving fast and forward with new growth. Turning all eyes on us as we play the “ bill dance”. Canada is known as an “melting pot” for cannabis connoisseurs. Cannabis apparel is showing up in all provinces in Canada.

Canada, a place where people all over the world come to make this ever growing country home. We are known for our beautiful rocky mountains our wide spread of the prairie farm lands and our many national parks. Canada is a beautiful country fast paced and never stops growing. We are a G7 country through ad though. It’s what makes us special and unique. Although this “ bill dance” is confusing,frustrating and time consuming we are all excited to be the first G7 country to make cannabis legal nationwide.

CANADA-LOVE

10 Fun Things to do while Feeling Elevated on Cannabis

All stoners know that everything and we mean everything is better when you’re elevated on cannabis. Still some activities help you really get into an extremely focused and fun state of mind. Throwing you into a wave you never knew you could ride.

Coming up is a list if interesting activities to get into while lifted. If you see one you haven’t tried yet I’m sure the grinder isn’t too far from reach, let’s get busy stoners!

1- Artwork

Calling all pot head Picasso’s, all dank Dali’s! Picking up a pencil after putting down a blunt is like drawing pictures of what the herb whispered to you while you inhaled her. Even if you’re just an occasional doodler, the process of art while elevated on cannabis is mad refreshing. Colors vibrant and giving good vibes, paint strokes curving beautifully each one more eloquent then the next. Maybe you’re the hands on type and arts and crafts is your main squeeze, bird houses built from bud hands make the happiest Blue Jays hands down. THC makes the tinkering seem effortless as you Zone out in your living room or workspace creating your very own hobby lobby. Channel any left over stress you may be feeling into whatever work of art. Regardless of medium or materials used you and Mary will have masterpieces to display when it’s all said and done.

2- Cooking

This one makes perfect sense and I’m sure we all know why. The munchies are going to hit you anyway bro. Why not have a delicious meal or savory snack ready to cuddle up to. Our pallets change over time as we mature and adapt to new flavors. Now as adult stoners we’re ready to puff the green but taste the rainbow. Look up an interesting dish while elevated on cannabis. See how well the high you can follow step by step instructions. Also there are many foods (such as mango) that when paired with marijuana can actually make you higher. Try incorporating these into your cooking sessions until you’ve become a chronic culinary champion. Sweet treats come in clutch when you’re visiting the moon as well. Check out our stoner cookbook for amazing recipes.

3- Play video games

Look left, look right, check map and weapon inventory, now make a run towards head quarters. You’re officially in full survival mode ready to take on the worst. In this stoned moment it’s about much more than beating the high score, its life or death and we choose life! Video games when you’re blowed is like watching movies on an adrenaline shot. Being that you’re engaged on so many levels (visual, mental, physical)  when you play Mary makes this an overwhelmingly good time. Gaming is awesome for times when you want to Zone out in your high and be alone, but is also perfect for a super litty social smoke sess. Often times as smokers the act can be enhanced when you’re enjoying the company of a fried friend, or just anyone you vibe with. Hooking up the controllers during your next get up is sure to make for some interesting convo and belly laughs by he bong load.

4- Meditation while elevated on cannabis

One of the great attributes medical marijuana brings to the table is the ability to chill you all the way out. Many stoners soley medicate for stress relief and incorporate it into their daily lives for therapeutic reasons. Pairing these and other weed practices with meditation can help you reach heights you never thought you could. A huge part of meditation revolves around centering yourself and your thoughts to be in the “now”. Ganja takes you to a place where there is no space or time, opening your pineal gland to allow the most Nirvana like meditative state. It’s definitely worth a few Doobie hits and incense sticks to give it a try. Pot heads have hella busy lives too, taking a moment to stop the orchestra in your mind is a great way to reboot and recharge your soul. Namaste.

Getting elevated on cannabis and meditating is crucial when you’re stressed out or having a bad day.

5- Watch cartoons

Making it to the list of terrific trippy activities is of course watching cartoons. You can go in so many directions with this it’s insane. Whatever mood the herb puts you in will dictate whether you end up watching black and white classics, vintage nicktoons, anime, Tom and Jerry, or Rockos modern Life. Guaranteed you’ll pick up on things you never noticed, chuckle harder than you thought possible at Felix the Cat, and have a dope ass time. Cartoons are like a weed sproutlet they get danker and doper with time and age. So kick back and flip to some boomerang while you roll up. Nothing beats gorilla glue and Magilla Gorilla together in one room.

6- Cleaning

We know exactly what you’re thinking, “say whaaaa? Why would I waste a good buzz cleaning?” And that my stoner friends is where you’re wrong, you wouldn’t b wasting a good buzz you’d be making it better by using it to fuel your cleaning. Most would agree there’s nothing better than a productive pot head. So get to those dishes in the sink and blow the dust off your vacuum cleaner; but not before you get stoned to the bone. Once you’ve reached your level the tasks you were dreading an hour ago become busy work for your hands while you’re vibing out to your favorite playlist. Chronic cleaning in mist cases will have your living area sparkle like an open house, books arranged in alphabetical order as well as color coded. All thanks to that hybrid you finished earlier. Now that it’s clean and you can breathe sit back and be proud of yourself, a job this well done deserves another joint.

7- Work out

You are now being introduced to the end all be all when it comes to a pre workout. When you work out, or the release of sweat in general increases the blood flow in turn making you higher. It’s cool science stuff like this that could turn your next trip to the gym from epic fail to eternal win. If getting stoned before a good sweat just isn’t your jiz, then by all means grab yourself a killer Indica and blaze afterwards. Sore or rigid muscles don’t stand a chance against THC and CBD. Living your best life is a 360° effort and the fact that you’re even willing to get your heart pumping is a giant first step; paired with your first love you might surprise yourself with just how much iron you can really pump.

8- Listen to music

Now is the time to re visit all your favorite tunes so you can dance to them as if it’s your first time hearing. Having a soundtrack to your life makes any situation bearable at least, but when under the influence of Mary Jane you’re instantly in a movie, playing the lead role and not dying at the end. Not to mention there are several songs that water directly to a higher state of mind. One being the Weeknd’s “High for this.” Layers of sound have been compacted into one track that takes you beyond everything else. It’s one you most definitely have to enjoy. Bumping toons while high can lead to nothing but a good time maybe some dancing and memories to last a lifetime.

Get elevated and let the music set your mind free

9- Outside activities

Hotboxin with the homies is life, but let us not forget about our old friend oxygen. Get out and get stoned as often as possible. Sun kissed cheeks smiling in a full blown high is a sign of good things to come. Playing frisbee is an excellent source of vitamin awesome and an activity that Fido can enjoy as well, we can’t forget our pot head pups. Some even say they experience a better stone when they’re outside getting all one with nature and what not. Take that book on the porch, send those emails from the hammock, grab that soccer ball collecting dust in the garage and bust a move. The time is here to put that Sour D to work, use the bud as a sort of battery and remind yourself that life is full of sunshine.

10- Set life goals

Your soul and thoughts have taken flight. As the smoke still lingers in the air ideas begin to flow through your being. Think of good ones that actually make sense this time. Don’t just sit on it! Pull up the note pad on your phone and write them down. From this starting point there’s really no stopping you. Remembering life goals you set eons ago, they were never forgotten. Only in hibernation waiting for you to rip the bong and reminisce. Putting pencil to paper may seem a bit archaic now but the mere motion can get wheels spinning. Before you even realized it you completed a full year plan complete with your self esteem on 1000%. You may just want to get a simple to do list out of the way. Sparking a doobie beforehand will have you writing as well as finishing your honey do list before your honey dip can even ask.
Have fun, be active, and always stay stoned. Check out our awesome collection of weed clothing.

Mary Jane’s Deep Roots in Hip Hop

Mary Jane’s Deep Roots in Hip Hop

It’s no secret that taking hits of Mary Jane can stimulate and enhance your creative juices in a number of ways, one being the ability to spit hot fire. Hip hop and pot go together like hippies and VW wagons. A match made in heaven or a fatal attraction? Hip hop culture is constantly changing and evolving much like the medical marijuana industry, and the music hitting the airwaves definitely reflects this.

In 1995 the hip hop group Crucial Conflict had everybody bumping their hit “Hay”, with the chorus singing proudly “smoking on hay (hay) in the middle of he barn!” It was off the wall creative analogies like these that kept smoke floating through the streets. In most recent years though, lyrics have become much more straight forward embracing the fact that more and more people are being able to live their best stoner lives. Falling into the hip hop genre and a perfect example of how medicinal marijuana partakers have hit mainstream and aren’t ashamed to belt about it, would be Jhene Aiko and Swae Lee’s “Sativa”.

mary-jane-hip-hop

The title alone let’s you know some interesting lyrics are sure to follow. “I know you won’t leave me hanging, smoking weed out the container”…”is it hot in here it is it just me? I’m so high in here been smoking on this weed”. The straight forward delivery makes the hit you take while listening to this hit so much sweeter. Even still the stigma of Mary Jane being a negative has to constantly be proven wrong the best way to do this is to educate. On March 27th there was a Marijuana rally in Washington DC bringing together multiple activists in favor of legalization of medical Mary in the capital.

One of hip hops pot heavy hitters Cypress Hill headlined the event. The hip hop culture knows how much MMJ is a positive force, and when the two work together the force becomes unstoppable Musicians are individuals with mass influence able to reach millions; millions of stoners of course, and they love to share they’re high stories and experiences alongside dope beats. Progression is key and as long as Mary keeps reinventing herself through lyrics we can have nothing but high hopes for the future.

Pot Like a Boss

pot-like-a-boss

Pot Like a Boss

The idea of stoners/potheads is not what it use to be. Times have changed and so have the views, but some views are still the same. Some people still believe “pot-heads” are like that show “The 70’s Show”. Just a bunch of kids hanging out not doing much. And for some, that idea isn’t too far off but for some it was quite the opposite. When I hit my early teens I was introduced to pot – it was around christmas time and I was with my older brother. That was the first time I’ve ever smoked weed. I remember it hit me like ton of bricks.

Burning my lungs making me cough until I thought I was doing to die. Then I sat and laughed way to much about everything, everything was funny. My brothers friend drove me home, where I continued to the kitchen and then somehow made it to my bed without waking my parents and passed out. From there the cycle never really changed – I would get high have a burst of energy, the giggles, the munchies, and then the dreaded burn out. Moving into my late teens I took time away. Would come back here and there. One phase in my life where all I did was smoke weed and quit drinking and other drugs. The only thing that seemed to change was my tolerance, I was able to stay up more and the burn out get easier to deal with.

When I moved to Fernie BC a small ski town. I quit for about 3 seasons. I never bought it but if it was offered I would toke up. When I started smoking again I learned how to smoke and work. In other words “ pot like a boss”. Everyone did it – they would wake up take a toke while the coffee was brewing, get on with the day. If that was going to work, heading to the ski hill or getting ready for a bike ride.

As the seasons pasted, I continued to smoke up and do my thing. When I moved back home, had my son and returned to the work world was when I started toking up again. I took a year after the birth of my son. The reasoning was different it was to help with anxiety, stress, made the single working mom lifestyle seem a little more easier. As I started to create my business, branched off to other work, blog writing, radio work. Pot become a health benefit as well as a creative opener. I could feel it opening & expanding my mind when I started to work. The possibilities were endless. I could feel magic being created while I worked away. I’ve said it before pot will never make me a better person, but it does help me create a better artistic result. Which is more than 80% of my work.

I created this for a few different reasons. To tell you that it can be done!

Pot like a boss stonerdays

You can toke up and not sit on your ass all day long. Bending to the social stigma. To encourage you to activate the creative parts of you. To encourage you to use pot for its benefits not to just look “cool” or solely for the purpose that you like to get high. We are at such a beautiful time where we can speak out about the things we believe/ love. People are coming together, creating communities that support and educate. We can change the idea the social stigma others have on pot. But in order to change the minds of others, we must first change ourselves.

History of Cannabis – April 20 4:20

history-of-cannabis-by-stonerdays

History of Cannabis – April 20 4:20

History of Cannabis 4/20 – 1971 five boys got together to find an abandoned cannabis crop. They called this the “4:20 Louis”. Later “Louis” was dropped and  4:20 was born. After numerous attempts the boys never did find the crop and they eventually gave up. The “time” still lingered, over the years cannabis users across the world, used it as a time to toke-up. Talk about being a legend. Countries started coming together, creating events for the cannabis community. For those who smoked for its health properties, to the ones who smoked it just because they liked to.

Being an active festivaler myself, it was easy to understand that being around this environment brought a sense of belonging. For many cannabis enthusiasts 4:20 is a day to stand together and to fight for a change in the drug policy.

Ancient China – Cannabis was used in taiwan, for fiber 10,00 years go. Cannabis was referred to “daman” and was used for its many medical benefits.

Can’t we all just get a bong? James Bong

Can’t we all just get a bong? And can’t we all just get along? Well, maybe if we all got a bong, we could all get along. And that is the mission of Bong. James Bong. To make sure that everyone gets a bong. And that everyone gets along.

We all know that the world governments seem to have the hardest time just getting along. So what if they all just got a bong? What would happen? In this latest installment of the cannabis crusaders comic adventures, James rolls through some sticky spots to find out.

Can’t we all just get a bong

Can’t we all just get a bong. Stoner comics

Agents of J.O.I.N.T. are sworn to believe that the world’s problems can be solved with cannabis. It’s a solution we can all share and pass along through the generations, and hopefully, one day, something that we can all agree upon. I mean, it’s okay to disagree a little. Some people like to smoke it, some people like to eat it. There’s room for everybody. Because either way, you will probably get the munchies.

As usual, James Bong is brought to you by a consortium of the world’s most talented artists, delivered with a creativity the worlds governments would do well to apply to their activities and governance. But the message is clear and translates across any and all boundaries.

Whether it’s a joint, a blunt, a bowl, or a bong, whether it’s indica or sativa, indoor or outdoor, the important thing is that we share. Because sharing is caring. And caring is the first step to getting along. And it all begins with a bong. James Bong.

Mothers and Weed: Living, Parenting, and Smoking Weed

#1 Reason why Moms Smoke: Another One of those Days…

(Written by a mom who tokes up)

Mothers and weed go together and for a day like this its like PB&J. Punching out at the office just meant clocking into my other job as mom. Another day where I pick up my crying child who also had a bad day. Another day where I’m driving home thinking about dinner, work, and more importantly; how am I going to unwind? Arriving home and all I want to do is take off my bra, change into my pajamas and get into bed, but that’s not what good moms do. So I start dinner, change my sons diaper, turn on the Disney Channel, and take a deep breath resisting the erg to throw a tantrum myself. I declare “mommy time” and I go to my special cabinet and pull out my special little box, open it, and pull out my joint and lighter.

Mothers Who Smoke Weed

This is the moment where I lose most people and get one of those looks of shame. They stop caring to hear more of what I have to say. Others do the, “been there” looks. Either way, mothers and weed go together for “mommy time.”

Let’s back up here. We all know that being a mom is hard, and this comes from a mother who smokes weed.

Moms have much to do, and more to remember. We’re hero’s, cooks, day planners, and human. Mothers and weed help. Moms listen to endless stories that make no sense, and we make it our number one interest. The fact is, its hard work, but we love them. I am a firm believer in the words and believe that you have to put on your oxygen mask before you can help others. In other words, you have to take care of yourself to take care of others around you. I couldn’t help my son and myself at the same time. I’m tired, still in work clothes, hungry and my glass of wine is not helping. In fact, it’s now doing the complete opposite of helping and making me want to cry. Forget parenting and wining, mothers and weed sounds like a pairing I need.

Real Life Parenting With Mothers Who Smoke Weed

I have always known the health benefits of smoking marijuana, but I didn’t smoke for those reasons. I smoked marijuana because of the enjoyment of being stoned. Now as a single mother of one, I smoke marijuana for health & wellness.

I will tell you that marijuana makes you or me a better mother, but I will say that it does help in my day to day life. It helps me be more creative, patient, relaxed, and not to worry about the small things. When its, “another one of those days” it helps me to take a breather and to prioritize what needs to be done before the days end. I can then go to bed hoping for a great nights rest. All things you need as you climb the parent latter. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy smoking recreational but the health benefits as a mother is much more appealing.

Mothers Who Smoke Weed marijuana 420 pregnancy

I can step out for 20 seconds, take care of myself, and know my son will be okay.

Mothers are no good for there kids in a bad mood. Children are smarter than we think, and pick up on things such as our moods and energy. Smoking weed of course has its stigma, and even today, as the laws are changing people still pin it as a drug that shouldn’t be consumed. The problem for most mothers, is it makes us ashamed. So why should we be ashamed for doing something that helps us? I conducted a research I found that 6/10 woman I talked to where marijuana users. All 6 mothers felt ashamed of what they were doing. All 6 said the reason was is that its illegal. Another study showed 9/10 mothers I talked to who didn’t smoke weed and drank alcohol, said that they don’t feel at all guilty for drinking. Most claimed “ mommy time” as drinking with other mothers venting about their kids.

As a mother who smokes marijuana and drinks wine, I found it oddly sad. Where were the proud marijuana smoking mother groups?

Why is drinking more “accepted” then pot? Especially in this day and age how the laws are changing. I could not wrap my mind around the fact that woman who smoked pot were still considered some what of an “outcast” or the “ hippy” mom who was also labeled “the bad mom.”  While the other mothers who get together with their bottles of wine and cases of beer are celebrated. There are groups on facebook, but when I reached out to the members no one answered not even one like, when I reached out on my personal facebook I got messages of negativity. A few positive but even the ones who were sending good vibes didn’t want to share.

Back inside with my little one. Im calm, and he is sensing the stillness in my body. My calming energy and soft voice, cradling him in my arms, sitting on the floor and rocking him back and forth. His tears stop and his soft sobs now turn into regular breaths. Taking his bottle he starts to slip into a nap. And at this very moment I say “thank you weed”. Thank you for helping me get through the ugly times. We applaud you for giving us the extra patience. We love you for helping open the hidden creativity zones in our minds, so that we can be children again. Thank you cannabis for lowering our anxiety and stress. You also help us see that a burnt dinner is really no big deal.

All the love from a mom who smokes pot and doesn’t see a single problem with it.

Marijuana Comic James Bong Cannabis Crusader

Well, it’s been over a year since the passing of the torch from the nation’s favorite cannasseur-in-chief, Budrock Obama, to President Tweet and his ironically named, super anti-cannabis Attorney General Joint, I mean, Jeff Sessions. Everybody at the JOINT Agency, Justice Organization Involving Nugget Technology, misses our Bud very much. So on this marijuana comic we decided to celebrate the cannaversary, or rather mourn the passing, and share this cannabis comic about the time Mr. Bong, James Bong, painted the White House green.
There’s a saying around the JOINT. It’s a saying that’s been at the core and the heart of the agency since the sparking of the very first JOINT, a saying that rhymes, and that saying is: puffsnotcuffs. And this mantra is more relevant every day, as activists and patients and freedom fighters everywhere struggle to remove the cuffs and take more puffs.
JAMES-BONG-STONERDAYS-COMIC-MARIJUANA
With a zealously corrupt organization enforcing unjust laws. JOINTS mission is more clear than ever. Luckily, James was able to coax his way into the Oval Office. Making an ally with the power of his words and the potency of his buzz, just before the changing of the guard.
As usual, Mr. Bong’s adventures are brought to you by a global coalition. Talents converging from across borders to spread the buzz, and our good weed ambassadors at stonerdays deliver the message.
Let’s work together to make America High Again. Truly One Nation Under Bong. A Land of the Free and Home of the Buzzed. Enjoy!”
Danks, I look forward to your reply!

How Does Smoking Marijuana Affect Weightlifting?

MARIJUANA-WEIGHTLIFTING

How Does Smoking Marijuana Affect Weightlifting?

We’re living in times of big changes. How does marijuana affect weightlifting?  Well, as technological progress occurs faster, the first AI has been granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia. The number of people living in urban areas is increasingly rising. People are turning their focus from fossil fuels to find ways to utilize renewable energy sources. Another big change is the legalization of marijuana in several states of the U.S. More than half of them deemed it illegal by 1931 (the massive unemployment during the Great Depression led to an increased fear of Mexican immigrants who introduced the recreational use of marijuana, having the American government condemn cannabis as dangerous).

cannabis and weightliftingNowadays, the plant’s medical benefits are being acknowledged, even by professional athletes. Cannabis helps increase our appetite, pain threshold, and helps with post-workout recovery. When it comes to using cannabis to improve weightlifting efforts and results, the effects actually vary depending on the person using it. We are here to explore the dilemma regarding the plants’ potential effects on hormones, behavior, and cognition.

The endocannabinoid system and weightlifting

One of the most important and far-reaching systems in the human body is the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which refers to a series of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. The two main cell receptors, CB-1 and CB-2 are bound in our brains and bodies by cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), through marijuana consumption. The binding of CB-1 and CB-2 by exogenous cannabinoids impacts several metabolic processes.

The ECS controls pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, sleep, immune function, and many other processes. Muscle and fat tissues utilize these cell receptors as well to control their own processes. Thus, a marijuana smoking habit can be perceived as a way to hack into our metabolism and affect certain processes.

Appetite

Weightlifters pay much attention to their nutrition, as it’s highly important for their muscle building goals. When activated by dronabinol CB-1 prompts the release of hormones that promote hunger. This can mean the world to all the weightlifters out there. The effects can be produced only by short-term cannabis use. Chronic marijuana users usually experience a decrease in appetite. THC has a weaker impact on appetite than 2-AG (a naturally-produced endocannabinoid molecule). Cannabis binds the CB-1 receptor, which results in an appetite decrease due to downregulation of CB-1 receptors, and eventually – weight loss.

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers

Physical performance

There are several studies that showed how marijuana impairs human psychomotor abilities. Today, certain pro athletes have become major cannabis advocates, claiming that it also helps them with post-workout recovery, making it one of the cannabis trends in the industry that needs to be considered responsibly.

Muscle building: Kush Ups

We mentioned performance enhancement with runners and extreme athletes, but what about weightlifters? How does cannabis consumption affect muscle building? This requires a discussion of its effect on human hormones. The human growth hormone (HGH) and testosterone as two of the most important hormones that influence muscle growth.

When it comes to testosterone, there are studies that found a decrease in testosterone, as well as those that found no effect on testosterone levels, in addition to normal levels of follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin, and luteinizing hormone.

The legalization of cannabis in the U.S. hasn’t been conducted across the entire country, with a few ridiculous laws pertaining to cannabis still remaining. Weightlifters may benefit from appetite increase and post-workout recovery. The fact is that cannabis won’t impair your body’s ability to perform and build muscle. Just keep yourself disciplined when enjoying the herb. Don’t let it affect your dieting and training plans. You’ll manage to break through your physical plateaus and build muscle.

Starting Your Edibles Business the Proper Way

Starting Your Edibles Business the Proper Way

The marijuana industry has been growing rapidly since the legalization of medical marijuana in states like California and Alaska in the ‘90s. Now, nearly 60 percent of Americans live in a state where marijuana consumption is legal in some form. The edibles market alone is responsible for nearly $10 billion of the profits earned in the marijuana industry for 2017.

Edibles are now one of the fastest growing markets, making it an extremely lucrative business opportunity for entrepreneurs thinking about joining the market. Whether you run a subscription-based business in Colorado or open a storefront in downtown Seattle, you can almost guarantee you will make a profit if you are following the state laws and keeping up with ordinance amendments.

 

Know the Local Marijuana Laws

Each state in the U.S. varies in its marijuana laws, from states that offer medical and recreational sales to those 21 and older, states that only allow medical marijuana with a prescription, and states that allow no consumption of marijuana and punish marijuana users similarly to heroin users.

Because of the wide variety of legalization that spreads across the country, it is important to have a broad knowledge of the local laws in your area. Marijuana businesses have been known to be shut down for failure to follow state ordinances, so being one with the law is vital in this industry.

Establish a Kitchen or Shop

One of the many ordinances laid down for the edible industry is the requirement to cook your edibles in a commercial kitchen. Not only do you have to find a commercial kitchen, the kitchen itself also has to be sanctioned for marijuana use. This makes finding a space somewhat more challenging, but not impossible.

There also comes the additional burden of affording a space. Commercial kitchens are by no means cheap and often require money down for security deposits, insurance and other fees which can cut into your overall profit. The benefits of combining a kitchen and a shop means you don’t have a middleman to sell your treats; instead you make them in the back, bring them to the front and sell them.

The Financials

cannabis hangover

Money is the most stressful aspect of starting a new business. In fact, finding funding for your marijuana startup can be nearly impossible, especially when there are only a few financial institutions that will give business loans to companies that work in the marijuana industry.

Many entrepreneurs joining the market start their companies with their own money that they have saved. This is a smart option for doing business and avoiding debt, but it can make your profit potential feel low to start off. Though startup loans are difficult to come by depending on the state you operate out of, there are some places that will work with you.

Grow Your Own Cannabis

The best way to ensure you are using the highest quality buds is by growing them on your own. Nowadays, getting a license to grow your own plants is not too difficult in states where recreational use is legal. The most difficult aspect of growing your own bud in bulk is finding the land to grow it and the employees to maintain it.

Consider purchasing a cheaper piece of land that requires some maintenance. Spend some time working on the land, leveling the ground, tilling the soil, and fertilizing the dirt. Once you have a nice area to begin growing, it will only take a few short weeks before your plants start to turn out buds and you can begin baking.

Build Your Cannabis Brand

Your brand is one of the most important elements to perfect before you begin selling your products. In this industry, there has to be some element of purity and rarity to your product. Most edible businesses that have found success have done so by honing in on a specific niche like gluten-free treats, sugar-free treats and all-natural treats.

Recognizing the potential for profit based on your aesthetics is also vital. For example, if you want to sell an edible that looks like the real thing, you must present it thusly in the packaging by using earth tones and slogans like, “Tastes like home,” or “Like mom used to make.”

Another element of packaging to keep in mind: packaging regulations and standards. For instance, it is now required to have packaging and colors that are not attractive to children, as well childproof to avoid dosing your underage children with CBD and THC.

Develop Relationships

Relationships are important for any new and upcoming business, weed-related or not. If you haven’t created the proper connections and developed your professional network, it can be difficult to gain momentum in the market and build a reputation for your company. The edible industry is a market where developing relationships is especially important.

 

As a business-owner, you want to find people who work in similar fields to you and learn about their successes and how they achieved them. In the marijuana industry, the best way to build your network is by attending legit and professional marijuana conferences where you can test other products, learn about new trends and market your products to thousands of people.

If you are an entrepreneur hoping to join a market with massive growth and even more massive growth projections, the edibles industry can be an excellent choice for you if you live or are willing to move to a state where recreational use is legal.

Bud bakers are always welcome.

Cannabis Sleep – 10 Things For Your Herbal Nightcap

Cannabis Sleep – 10 Things For Your Herbal Nightcap

Before bed, many people choose cannabis sleep. Marijuana is offering new hope for those who suffer with chronic sleep issues. With 88% of Americans approving the medical use of marijuana, according to a 2017 CBS News poll, it may be time to change up your current nightcap of choice.

With more than 60 million people in the United States currently experiencing issues with their sleep patterns according to American Sleep Association, it’s never been a better time to take advantage of the changes in legislation. Instead of a glass of wine or a sleeping pill, cannabis before you sleep will have you catching your zzz’s. If you’re an insomniac who’s weighing their options, here are some things to consider before you decided to give it a try. Guilhem Vellut. Marijuana. 2005. Flickr.com. Web. Nov 7. 2017.

cannabis-and-sleep-marijuana-420-weed

A Small Dose

It’s easy enough to think that a few puffs will do when it comes to inhaling cannabis and sleep, but it’s important to be aware that there can be too much of a good thing and using marijuana as a sleep aid is no different. Taking a few too many inhalations can easily lead to early-morning grogginess, so you’ll want to wade into your pre-sleep use slowly and get familiar with the drug’s impacts first.

Consider the Strain

cannabis and sleep marijuana nugIf you’re interested in marijuana as a sleep aid, it might seem like it’s all the same, but there are a number of strains to choose from and you’ll want to be informed about which one will work best for your needs. Indica can be a comforting, relaxing strain while a Hybrid is a combination of different strains, but it’s important to consult with your doctor or a healthcare professional first to determine what they would recommend.

Timing is Everything

The impact that inhaling marijuana will have on cannabis and sleep depends on many factors. Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly when it will hit you. Much like determining the proper dosage, you’ll need to time it as best you can. According to Harvard-trained physician Dr. Jordan Tishler, “They are unreliable about when they’ll kick in. Sometimes it’s about one hour, other times it can be more like two to three hours.” As a result, Tishler suggests taking your dose about one hour before bed to avoid upset.

Don’t Overdo It

With legalization occurring in many places, marijuana can certainly be a viable way of dealing with insomnia, but it’s important not to take its sleep-savvy abilities for granted. Prolonged use can cause changes to the brain that have an impact on cognitive functioning, so ensure that you use it in moderation and not as a daily antidote to ongoing sleep issues.

Reducing REM Sleep

There are two strains of cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and according to study by NCBI, using marijuana with a higher amount of THC will lead to less REM sleep. REM is important when it comes to regular cognitive functioning and feeling well rested, so it’s important to be aware of what you’ll be inhaling.

Try Some Tea

Cannabis and sleep – try some tea!

Once you’ve figured out the ideal dosage you may want to consider pairing it with a cup of chamomile tea. Because chamomile possesses sedative qualities, it can actually add a little bit of kick to your herbal nightcap. If chamomile doesn’t do the trick, you may want to try lavender oil or a melatonin supplement instead.

Cannabis and Sleep – Reducing Pain

Many people may not have to endure the effects of a troubled sleep. Dealing with chronic pain can be just as problematic when it comes to counting sheep. Fortunately, with its inherent medicinal qualities, a little bit of strains of the leaf can work to reduce pain and help users enjoy a more restful sleep.

Lengthening Your Rest

While cannabis can improve the nighttime hours for insomniacs, it’s also possible that it can lead to longer periods of uninterrupted sleep for those who use it. It’s just important to determine the dosage that will give you the required result so that you don’t have to deal with any inhalation hangovers or other symptoms associated with ingestion.

The Ideal Ingestion

Alongside dosage, you’ll want to determine the ideal way to ingest marijuana for maximum impact before you go to bed. Smoking it may lead to an instant reaction, while edibles can take a little bit of time to kick in. Before deciding on one or the other, do some bedtime experiments to see what gives you the best result.

Use Cannabis and Sleep With Caution

It’s important that marijuana isn’t the only solution to chronic sleep issues for a variety of health reasons. However, it’s also important to know that the effects of the drug can actually wear off overtime. While a little bit of use can help, some studies have shown that daily use gives way to more sleep disturbances in the long term.

Stoner Days Top Ten Celebrities Who Love the Leaf

Stoner Days Top Ten Celebrities Who Love the Leaf

There was a time when being a stoner wasn’t so mainstream, but with changing legislation and the health benefits of CBD and CBD oil, a zest for pot has become more common. According to a survey by Yahoo News and The Marist Poll, “Weed & the American Family”, 56 percent of Americans now think that using the green stuff is socially acceptable. Fortunately, as the tides change for the popular leaf, there are many celebrities already on the bandwagon. From pop stars and famous actors to comedians and American rappers, here are some of pot’s most prominent proponents.

Rihanna

Rihanna may have rose to fame as the Barbados- ‐born Queen of Pop. And, while she’s well known for songs like “Umbrella” and “S & M”, she’s also a big stoner and fan of the green stuff. It’s said that Rihanna’s slowed down on her affection for the substance. The snaps are out there for all to see of her rolling a blunt on the bald head of her bodyguard at 2012’s Coachella Festival. When the mood strikes, you can always bet that Rihanna’s on the search for the best Marijuana seeds around.

Snoop Dogg

stoner snoop dogg weed gifThere are few purveyors of pot as well known as Snoop Dogg, but what’s not as well known is that the famous rapper now has his own line of strains and edibles, Leafs By Snoop . As if that weren’t enough, the rapping roller also went to the White House in 2015 to meet President Obama, and supposedly got stoned with an unknown staff member during his visit.

Lil Wayne

lil wayne stoner smoking weed gif

He may be one of the best selling American hip- ‐hop artists of all time, but that doesn’t stop Lil Wayne from knowing when it’s time to chill out. As he said to Rolling Stone magazine in 2010, “I’m a very successful addict. And a very smart one. A very charismatic one. One stoner that just won four Grammys, and one that sold a million records in a week.” Well, no one said that a love for the leaf made one modest!

Joseph Gordon- ‐Levitt

One of the young actor’s first gigs might have been on the creative and quirky television show 3 rdRock from the Sun , but The Dark Knight Rises alumni finds his own inner creative spark with a little help from the green stuff. Referring to the inspiration for his movie Don Jon , he has pot to thank, stating to Howard Stern that, “I pace around and have all sorts of good ideas, I was stoned when I first thought of Don Jon as a comedy.”

Morgan Freeman

stoner-morgan-freemanFrom The Shawshank Redemption to Seven , Morgan Freeman is a Hollywood heavyweight famous for his list of films and his silky, smooth voice. Fortunately for Freeman, after an accident in 2008 that led to chronic pain, he started using CBD products in order to deal with the pain. Not only has it made his life a little easier, he’s become a proponent for the legalization of medicinal marijuana.

Willie Nelson

Outside of Snoop Dogg, there are few pot lovers as famous as Willie Nelson, the American artist behind hits like “On The Road Again” and “Always On My Mind”. Of course, Nelson’s love of the stuff isn’t limited to just smoking it. While he’s been arrested on a few occasions for pot- ‐related infractions, the stoner singer has long been an advocate for the drug, even telling Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently that he should “try it” before judging it.

Kristen Stewart

The well- ‐known actor may have burst upon the scene and become a near- ‐household name with the release of Twilight in 2008, but one of the first impressions the world had of her was a picture taken the day the movie came out. In it, the then 18- ‐year old Stewart smokes a pipe on her front porch with her dog and her ex- ‐boyfriend. Unfortunately, while there was some blowback, Stewart has mentioned that she doesn’t care what people think of the habit.

Bill Maher

The comedian Bill Maher is very well known for his former show, Politically Incorrect , and his sometimes- ‐snide zingers, but the famous talk show host also happens to be a great supporter of pot. While Maher works at understanding the right and the left on the political spectrum, he also wrote in an Op- ‐Ed for Rolling Stone saying that, “For all our political rancor, it turns out, what ultimately unites us is pot. Puffing weed with friends is one of the few things that both hillbillies and hippies like.”

Woody Harrelson

stoner woody harrelson gif

While Harrelson has confessed to giving up smoking pot in recent years, he has long been an advocate for changing the stoner policy. In addition to serving on the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, Harrelson was among the first to apply to open a dispensary in Hawaii when medical marijuana production was first approved.

Kirsten Dunst

Dunst may have had a bad experience on the set of her latest movie, Woodshock, when she smoked an entire blunt. Not realizing it was the real thing – but the actress still professes an affection for marijuana. According to Dunst, who indulges on occasion, “If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.” With the social acceptance of marijuana hitting the mainstream, there’s a lot less reason to hide a fondness for weed.

Your Favorite Bouquet: Cannabis Flowers

Your Favorite Bouquet: Cannabis Flowers

With all the hubbub (for good reason) that surrounds hash oil, mega concentrates, and even gourmet quality cannabis cuisine, our old favorite standby, flower, AKA bud, may get lost in the shuffle. Some of the world’s greatest natural beauty exists inside cannabis buds. You don’t want to miss out on high quality medicinal flowers. So let’s review some of our favorite ways to enjoy this tried and true classic. Put down that blowtorch, pull out a Bic, and let’s get started.

 

Combusted dried flower, or buds, have been used by weed lovers for centuries
Combusted dried flower, or buds, have been used by weed lovers for centuries

 

The Benefit of Cannabis Flowers

If you search “dabbing videos” on youtube you will see people torturing their lungs with heavy duty cannabis concentrates. Seems a bit wasteful doesn’t it? Moreover, when weed is concentrated into hash oil it loses an incredible amount of terpenes (aroma, taste) for the sake of potency. When you smoke flower you appreciate cannabis in its most sincere form, with accompanying scent and taste. Moreover, you avoid the increase in tolerance that comes with dabbing, and other more potent mediums.

Pipes/Bowls: What makes them so popular for cannabis flowers?

Bowls, pictured above, are popular because of their simplicity. They are cheap, easily made, and can even be created from scratch using a few household items. Moreover, many people enjoy how reliable and easy pipes are at achieving their purpose. You don’t need to conduct an extensive process, like baking an edible or preparing a dab, to use your cannabis. Even a weed novice can pack a bowl, when they can’t roll a joint or use a bong. Just be sure to keep bowl’s clean to ensure good airflow and quality taste. Too much resin and your pipe will be clogged, and offer dirty tasting hits. Dirty pieces compromise a flower’s terpenes and taste.

Bongs/Bubblers

bong gif ted cannabis flowers

 

The first bongs date back around 2500 years ago, possibly even earlier. Today, the bong, or waterpipe, still finds it way into stoner dens and smoke spots the world over. Many people claim bongs actually get you higher, and protect you from harmful carcinogens by filtrating the smoke through water. While there will always be some harm contributed by smoke, the water in water pipes does filtrate smoke enough to cool it down when it hits your lungs. When the smoke is cooler more can be inhaled, thus contributing to the user’s high. This is why bongs seem to get users higher than other mediums of cannabis use. Also, because bongs filter with water, user’s can taste their cannabis more clearly. Bongs are a great way to enjoy cannabis in its most natural form. 

Joints/Blunts – Why they are so popular

The Joint may be the most recognizable, iconic way to enjoy cannabis, and references to joints litter popular culture. Its mechanism of action is pretty straightforward: the user rolls cannabis in a paper, making a cylindrical shape. The blunt is a varied form of the joint where the rolling medium isn’t paper but a cigar wrapper. Joints and blunts are equal to bowls when it comes to smoke temperature, because the filter is more of a mouthpiece than a filtration device.

Blunt and Joint enthusiasts laud the medium due to its simplicity and ease of use. Once rolled, you only need to light the joint once and draw. Moreover, the joint’s cultural footprint makes it a staple in stoner culture. The only downside to the joint/blunt is that burning paper, and tobacco, have many carcinogens. Like it or not, there is no denying the joints popularity amongst new age stoners and cannabis purists alike.

marijuana-bouquet-flowersAs more states begin to legalize recreational/medical cannabis there are many options to consume your favorite plant out there. However, don’t forget about the humble cannabis flower, because without it there are no extracts, concentrates, and delicious gourmet edibles. Getting back to basics can help you rediscover your love of cannabis. So get out there! Roll a joint, pack a bowl, smoke a bong, and enjoy cannabis in its most sincere form.

What Is a Weed Hangover? How Do You Survive It?

What Is a Weed Hangover? How Do You Survive It?

Anyone who wakes up feeling extra foggy and out of sorts after a heavy night of smoking may have a cannabis hangover. It is common, and any serious user knows exactly how it feels. Similar to drinking too much alcohol, weed hangovers are a very real thing. Although the symptoms are never as severe as drinking too many shots of Jack Daniels, the explanation is exact – you took too much and overdid it.

Symptoms of a Marijuana Hangover

As with alcohol, weed hangovers are not something that everybody gets all of the time. Some people get hangovers after drinking excessively, but do not experience the same from weed. Waking up stoned and groggy is still widespread though, and those that eat edibles, use tinctures, or take concentrates may feel the after-effects more severely. So, what exactly are the symptoms of a cannabis hangover?

·      Headaches

weed headache

The most common side effect of excessive consumption of marijuana is a throbbing head. Dehydration typically causes headaches, and this is the primary complaint of those describing what a weed hangover feels like. If you struggle with headaches in the mornings, then your natural instinct may be to drink more water. Listen to this gut instinct and keep well hydrated when smoking weed in the future.

·      Red Eyes

Red eyes are another widely reported symptom of a pot hangover. Smoking causes red eyes in most people, many of which rely on using copious amounts of eye drops and fitful sleep to clear it. However, when your eyes are still fiery the next day, it can be a clue that last night’s shenanigans maybe went too far. The cannabinoids in weed slow tear and saliva glands, which causes red eyes and “cotton mouth.”

·      Mental Fogginess

If you wake up and wonder, for even a second, where or who you are, then you had too much fun the night before. Morning confusion is a classic symptom of a weed hangover. Jump-starting the brain after a deep cannabis-induced sleep can take several time-precious moments, which many claim impossible without a shower, breakfast, and good, strong coffee. Your head should clear as the day progresses.

Surviving a Cannabis Hangover

Marijuana hangovers can affect anyone using weed, regardless of whether they are new to it or old connoisseurs. Critics claim that weed cannot give anyone a hangover, and that people are simply still high when they wake up after a night of heavy use. This does make perfect sense but, being a problem of the night before, the effects of a weed hangover are still undeniable. This is what to do about it:

Drink Water

Because headaches are typically the result of dehydration, drinking water often helps to make them go away. Hydrate yourself if you have a marijuana hangover. You will feel much better after two or three big glasses of good old H20, and keep drinking as much water as you can stomach during the day.

Consume Caffeine

coffee and weed

Being a stimulant, caffeine might just be what you need to wake up properly and clear any lingering fogginess from your head. If you do not enjoy coffee, consider other caffeinated drinks. Anything that acts as a stimulant should help you to jump-start your day after a long night of heavy weed use.

Eat Breakfast

wake and bake breakfast

Breakfast will always be the go-to cure for any hangover, including a cannabis one. The sight and smell of a big, greasy breakfast resolves the problem for most people. Vegetarians or grease-avoiding folk may not find this solution appealing. Regardless of your preferences, make sure that you eat something solid.

Stay Active

Keeping yourself busy will help you forget about your cannabis hangover. It will also help your body to recover quicker, as exercise always does. If you cannot handle the idea of jogging around the block on such a morning, then do not despair. Even if you choose a low-key activity, just keep yourself active.

Smoke a Joint

Many do not recommend consuming marijuana again until the effects wear off totally. Others disagree and believe the “hair of the dog” approach the only real solution. If you do decide to smoke another joint or nibble another edible, then choose a Sativa-dominant strain for energy and motivation.

Conclusion

If your weed hangover is severe and you do not have work obligations, then you can simply sleep it off. This is the best option for most people, but it is not always practical. Fortunately, a weed hangover does not usually last as long as an alcohol one will, so if you drink enough water to manage the headache, you should be feeling great again in no time at all. Just remember not to overdo it too much in the future.

MARIJUANA USERS ARE HEALTHIER THAN NONUSERS

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers

Marijuana Users Are Healthier Than Nonusers

A recent study published in the Journal of American Medicine has shows marijuana users are healthier than nonusers. This is exciting results for marijuana advocates. Along with the huge list of marijuana benefits listed below, marijuana actually helps to reduce weight. This might not make much sense at first. Appetite may develop after smoking pot, and the end result is called “the munchies”. After smoking, this state is inevitable and overeating is a definite consequence.

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers2

This is mainly due to the THC content, which sends signals to the brain that trigger the release of certain hormones. These hormones tell your body that you need to eat, regardless of the fact that you may have just eaten. To add to this, marijuana actually increases sense of touch, taste and smell, so the food tastes even better and is even harder to resist. By controlling the release of insulin, marijuana regulates metabolism in a way that promotes weight reduction, despite the fact that marijuana users may still consume more calories. This really is the best of both worlds, you eat more but actually lose weight because of a quicker metabolism.

The study was quite large, consisting of over 4,600 people. Previous research had shown that marijuana users had lower instances of diabetes and obesity. But this is the first study of its kind to establish a relationship between insulin and marijuana consumption. Studies show insulin is a key hormone linked to heart disease and metabolism.

In addition to weight loss, the study found that marijuana users in general are healthier than their nonsmoking counterparts. Most of the key variables indicate health is better for marijuana users than nonusers. Marijuana users have smaller waist to hip ratios, lower blood sugar, higher levels of HDL (“Good”) cholesterol and a lower risk of insulin resistance. The most pronounced results were in those who smoked regularly. In other words, marijuana could soon be up there with fruit and vegetables in terms of health and wellbeing.

Marijuana Health Benefits

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers

The findings of this study should not come as such as surprise, given the numerous health benefits associated with marijuana. Studies suggest that marijuana consumption increases creativity and problem-solving skills, and even helps focus in certain areas. The component that gives cannabis its health benefits is THC, which works on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for emotional processing, sleep and cognition.

The health benefits of marijuana are endless. Cannabis shows to alleviate Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, glaucoma, schizophrenia, insomnia, bi-polar and more. It helps to regulate metabolism and weight, by controlling the release of insulin. Not to mention the fact that it also happens to be a superfood. The leaves of the marijuana plant are full of beneficial compounds and vitamins. All leafy greens have the same characteristic of being full of vitamins which are incredibly beneficial. The biggest superfoods on the planet are usually green – Kale, Spinach, Spirulina, Marine Phytoplankton.

Cannabis research is making it a top superfoods across the web. Cannabis is used as a supreme muscle relaxant for athletes after sporting events, or to help them to get a restorative sleep. There is a large variety of topical cannabis products being release on the market as legalization continues.

How does Marijuana Work?

When marijuana is heated the THC rises in the form of smoke or vapor. THC is an element that gives the euphoric highs that cannabis is renowned for. Cannabis above 23% is judged to be of a high THC content. The range is generally from 19% to 23%. With the ongoing marijuana legalization, expect to see many THC infused products with a variety of benefits.

There is a large difference between vaporization and combustion. When marijuana is combusted, plant matter and filter paper is turned to smoke, and all the harmful chemicals from these substances end up being in your system. Numerous scientific studies indicate that vaporization is healthier than combustion. Materials heat to a lower temperature, which means that only the essential oils containing the THC and other compounds gets released. Chemicals get left behind as the heat is not strong enough to release them to gas.

Endocannabinoids

Cannabinoid receptors can be found throughout the body and play a role in practically all bodily functions, including sleep, appetite, mood, emotions, immune function, fertility and reproduction, hunger, temperature, memory, pain, pleasure and motor control. Endocannabinoids are chemical messengers that tell these receptors when to start and stop functioning. With many neurological disorders, endocannabinoids can help to get things moving again.

The Wonders of Marijuana

Research indicates the effects of marijuana on health are overwhelmingly positive. That said, it is still important to use responsibly. Excessive consumption, just like anything else, will result in unfavorable consequences. The real danger lies for children and young adults who might overuse. Marijuana has become one of the most illegitimately criticized foods in the world. The fact of the matter is that it does lower motivation, and there is a possible link between lower IQ and cannabis consumption.

It is also worth noting that while marijuana is generally good for neurological disorders, there are going to be instances where it will produce adverse effects. But if you are avoiding cannabis because you might put on weight, then you are doing so for the wrong reason.

10 BEST CANNABIS STORAGE IDEAS

10-BEST-CANNABIS-STORAGE-IDEAS

10 Best Cannabis Storage Ideas

10 BEST CANNABIS STORAGE IDEASHere are the 10 Best Cannabis Storage Ideas for every stoner. Because marijuana is organic, it will degrade over time, particularly if exposed to the elements. Storing cannabis properly is vital. So, how do you do it?
As organic matter, cannabis decomposes. You can prevent this from happening for as long as you store it properly. In fact, marijuana is much like wine: If you store it correctly, it will actually get more potent and tasty with time. Here are 10 ideas to help you get cannabis storage right:

  1. Keep It Dark

All cannabis storage must occur in the dark. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, light will quickly degrade your harvest. Choose a place where very little light can get to it, preferably none.

  1. Keep It Dry

If there is moisture in your weed when you store it, mold will grow and destroy it. Make sure you dry it properly before putting marijuana in storage. Stash it in a dry place free of damp and mold.

  1. Store It Airtight

Do not let any oxygen near your weed. According to the National Institutes of Health, oxygen triggers decomposition. Anything you put in glass will stay fresh for a long time. Use glass jars with airtight lids.

  1. Store It Cool

Warmth can denature trichomes, stimulate bacterial growth, and severely reduce quality. Keep your stash away from any heat. Store it in a drawer, closet or cabinet.

  1. Keep It Large

Do not break your buds down for marijuana storage. Keep your buds as big as possible. Breaking them into smaller pieces will accelerate decomposition and destroy precious THC crystals.

  1. Leave It Untouched

Do not handle your weed at all during storage. You will damage trichomes and lose THC and cannabinoids. Leave your stash untouched until you are ready to use it.

  1. 10 BEST CANNABIS STORAGE IDEASBurped It

It is crucial that you “burp” during cannabis storage. During curing, you should do this daily. During storage, do it only monthly. Open the jar for 10 minutes to let it air. Close it and put it back when done.

  1. Keep It Unfrozen

Freezing works if you are storing cannabis for years, but almost nobody stores stash for that long. Unless you are, avoid freezing. Defrosting reduces quality. If kept cool, it will stay fresh for at least two years.

  1. Hide It

Although the legalization movement is sweeping across towns and cities, you should still be discreet. Hide your stash from other eyes, and do not advertise that you have any.

  1. Store It Safe

Storing cannabis should occur in a safe place. Do not put it where something can knock it over, such as a cat. Store glass jars where they cannot fall over and break.

Although it may sound complicated, marijuana storage is actually very easy. Keep it dry, cool, and airtight in a safe, discreet place. Burp it once a month, and do not handle it unless you have to. What is the worst thing to happen to you when storing cannabis? Let us know in the comments below.

BUYING CANNABIS – THE SMART WAY

buying-cannabis-the-smart-way-1

Buying Cannabis – The Smart Way

Buying Cannabis, The Smart Way has us thinking how the rest of the stoner community purchases the sweet mary jane. Here is a quick glance at some of the certain types of buyers out in the stoner community.

There’s the individual buyer, the one who has his own connect and picks up Han Solo. There’s also the I Got 5 On It buyer, a stoner with no connect but is always ready to throw down on a sesh. One of the more consistent buyers is the Eight or Quarter at a time buyer. This buyer picks up larger perhaps to nickel some off or purely to blaze a large ass sack. Last on our list is the stoner that picks up an ounce or two at a time. When the herb is good you should always think about getting a larger amount. The next batch may not be what it use to be if you know what we mean.

In this article we are going to break down the purchase of an ounce. An ounce is what most stoners should strive to purchase. No matter who you are picking up from, no dealer wants to see the same guy every day for a dime bag. Buying an ounce can be done a couple ways. Purchase the whole wad yourself or get a couple friends together and go in on it.

You can’t go wrong buying an ounce of cannabis at a time

weed-chart-1

There is no dealer out there who want to see the same person day after day picking up a dime or dub sack. This creates traffic and interruption. As a buyer not one wants to over time purchase 10 dub sacks when in all reality they could have picked up an ounce for the same price. Thats 8 extra grams of the sweet mary jane for the exact amount.

Awesome Ice Bong

The story for this epic ice bong goes like this:

I harvested the ice from a frozen river. Using a chisel and a hammer I shaped two smaller blocks (one for the base and one for the neck of the bong)

I used a 3/8in drill bit to drill the downstem. I used a 1 1/2 inch forstner bit to drill the ice away where the neck will be. To join the two pieces of ice I melted the ends flat on a wood stove and then stuck them together and let them freeze.

The bowl is a normal bowl that I froze to the ice. You can’t remove it to clear the bong because it is frozen in place

As far as the ripability goes, it’s great. Smooth rips every time

New Study Claims Cannabis Inhibits Creativity

New Study Claims Cannabis Inhibits Creativity

cannabis-creativity

Currently sitting in a shop full of tattoo artists that enjoy using cannabis in their off time, I conducted a quick survey and asked them if they think the plant has an effect on their ability to tattoo or pierce people in creative ways. Being a tattoo artist or piercer (a good one) is probably one of the most creative careers that one can have. So when a study popped up saying that stoners aren’t as creative as non stoners, we all kind of stopped and laughed.

The study (which some media outlets are claiming has “busted the myth that marijuana makes you more creative”) was conducted by dividing cannabis users in to three groups of 18. One group was given cannabis via vape (but again, media outlet twists this by saying the THC was “injected with a vaporizer”) with a high dose of THC (22mg), one was given a low dose of 5.5mg, and the control group, which was given no THC. The study stated the that highest dose was equal to three joints (averaging at .5 grams of THC per joint, totaling at 1.5 grams of THC) and the low dose was equal to about a single joint. The groups were then asked to complete two tasks that tested their creative thinking.

Researchers said that the smokers who consumed low amounts of THC and no THC did the best at these tasks. They had the highest amount of cognitive thinking during the test. The group that had consumed the higher amount of THC didn’t do as well and they claimed that it actually hindered the ability to quickly identify as many possible solutions to the problem at hand. The conductors of the study said that there was no evidence of increased creativity in their actual performance.

tattoos-marijuana

Psychologist Lorenza Colzato held a press release and stated to the media “The improved creativity that they believe they experience is an illusion. If you want to overcome writer’s block or any other creative gap, lighting up a joint isn’t the best solution. Smoking several joints one after another can even be counterproductive to creative thinking.” Yet in the information on the study, not one sentence mentioned if the high THC group was full of regular smokers. If you give a new smoker three joints to the face, chances are that they will pass out and that’s the end of it. Heavy cannabis users can power through a day at work, a long drive, math homework, or writing a paper. Seasoned stoners know how to handle themselves and this “study” may have neglected to remember that fact.

Unfortunately, stoners everywhere will disagree with this fact, myself included, as well as every person currently sitting within ten feet of me at the moment. As a writer, I can say that smoking cannabis helps me to think of more possibilities for subject matter and also helps me to slow my thoughts down in order to focus on the task at hand (the complete opposite of what this study claims). Bottom line? Stoners are the best people to ask about whether they think cannabis hinders their creativity, not a study that may or may not be biased.

Hemp Greeting Cards

Hemp Greeting Cards

StonerDays presents Hemp Greeting Cards made out of American made Hemp. Lets stop with deforestation and all rally behind making more products out of hemp. Our world is truly a beautiful place and we plan on keeping it that way for all generations to come.

Our goal is to provide our fans with a hemp card that expresses their true feelings for that special person and for any occasion.

Write someone a card to wish them happy birthday or to just tell them that they’re your best bud. Some card stuffer ideas would be to add a dime bag inside or a joint/spliff. What could make someones day any better than some good vibes and some cannabis. Let StonerDays be the orchestrators of your next event such as a 4:20 sesh. Use our Let’s Get High Checklist hemp greeting card to rally the troops and make sure nothing is left out. Hemp Greeting Cards are available individually or in packs of 3, 6 or 12.

Marijuana and Sports

Marijuana and Sports 

I can imagine that the first argument against marijuana leniency in sports would be “well you smoke it so it’s obviously bad for sports players”.

stoner-days-sports

Well not these days. As most people know, there are numerous ways to get a dose of cannabis. You can vape it, smoke it, eat it, use tincture, etc.

So what if guys like gold medalist Michael Phelps want to enjoy a pot brownie, does it really matter? The guy won a gold medal I think he can choose what he wants to do. Since marijuana has effects that would seem to inhibit sports performance, I believe that it should be a less punishable offense for a player to test positive for THC than if they tested positive for steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Now there’s this; IS marijuana a performance enhancing drug?

stoner-weed-athlete-rob-van-dam

The plant relaxes people and improves concentration. Would that give pothead players an unfair advantage over sober players? While steroids promote a physical change, marijuana assists more in creating a calm mental state. Personally, I don’t see this as cheating. So you’re more calm. That doesn’t mean you’re now suddenly stronger or can run or play for longer. It just means that you’re chill. There really shouldn’t be a problem with that, right?

joe-rogan-DMT

Joe Rogan makes a very good point that working out while stoned is an awesome feeling. You can focus and relax during your workout. You don’t feel as stressed when you’re pedaling on the bike. Not to mention getting stoned and hitting the punching bag is quite liberating if you’ve had a bad day at work or school!

stoner-sports

I strongly believe that marijuana can assist us in most aspects of our lives and that sports could definitely be one of them. The relaxing qualities of the plant help to create a chill environment for you to work out in and play your sport. How many of you out there are stoner athletes?

Stoner Stereotypes

STONER-STEREOTYPES

Stoner Stereotypes

For years, stoners have been thought of as unmotivated, underage teenagers who can’t seem to accomplish anything more then eating their parents out of house and home. Others believe that stoners are daisy throwing hippies, running around hugging trees. I’m sure some of those statements might be true, but can we really assume that all stoners are the same?

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS STONER | StonerDays

These silly cliche’s are so ingrained in American media and portrayed in all stoner movies it would be extremely hard not to be influenced by television. But let’s admit it, they are pretty damn funny when your stoned. Everyone enjoys relaxing with a movie, good company, lots of weed and something to munch on. There’s nothing wrong with a day of relaxation no matter how you find it, and usually it’s found after a long day of work.

stonerdays construction workers | StonerDays

Stoners are extremely smart people who choose to smoke pot. There are people who choose to smoke a joint before a tests because they believe it helps them achieve higher grades. Others choose to smoke before they go to the gym saying it helps them focus on each rep. These same people will not only go to work with a better attitude but a want and drive to accomplish the most of each and every day. When all others feel the effects of a full days work and no release at home. With the days worries on their shoulders they never really forget about the day. This can cause stress, fights, drinking and really who want’s that.  I always smoke while I write. Stoners have become very familiar with the laws and benefits of marijuana. These days, we have to be smart in order to educate the people who still think that marijuana is a harmful gateway drug mmmkay?

South Park - Drugs are bad mmmkay | StonerDays

I don’t have anything against hippies but it seems like everyone still thinks that stoners are obsessed with tie dye and Jimmy Hendrix. Not every pothead likes that kind of stuff. I know plenty of stoners that own nothing tie dye, including myself. The image of stoners from the 70s and 80s seems to have followed us all the way to 2013. Some stoners appreciate the music of Hendrix, while others enjoy the sweet melody of a violin, piano etc. and let’s not forget about dubstep by far the easiest music’s to  loose yourself in. More to the point we all have our taste in music and most of us our set in our ways. Marijuana can help an individual truly let go of those old habits we all become accustomed to. This allows you to look at the world with a different perspective.

Stoner Pictures | StonerDays

Not only are stoners very creative, we like to consider ourselves energetic, alive, individuals. Smoking a blunt on top of a mountain on a beautiful winter day while snowboarding with your buddies is an experience unlike anything else and I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone. But the possibilities are endless swimming, hiking, simple throwing your headphones on, grabbing a skateboard, rolling a joint and hitting the streets can completely relax your mind and workout your body. It’s far more fun to get stoned and do these things. So, the next time anyone tells you stoners are lazy, show them otherwise not through angry or aggression but simple through your life, handle what needs to be done in life. Don’t talk about it, be about it.

skatepark and skaters | StonerDays

There’s also the paranoid stoner stereotype. Not all of us are worried that the cops are going to bust down the door and get arrested for having an eighth of weed. Some people do get slightly paranoid when they smoke but usually, you relax after a while and you realize that nothing bad is going to happen as long as you chill out and relax.

10 Different Types of Stoners

Everyone’s different. We learn this from a very young age, we are constantly trying to figure out what we like and what we don’t like. Each person has their own way of doing things, this makes the world go round.

The same goes for stoners, there are 10 Different Types of Stoners and we are all unique in our own special way.

10-DIFFERENT-TYPES-OF-STONERS

Next time you’re in rotation with your friends or maybe even just randomly smoking with fellow stoners, take a look around. Decide for yourself who is who. It can be quit interesting and fun realizing your friends unique traits of smoking the marijuana goodness. The 10 Different Types of Stoners are:

1. The Paranoid Stoner

marijuana-pictures-(32)

Oh my, this stoner! Haha. He/she can’t stop thinking somethings going wrong. “Everyones looking at me, why? Why, Am I laughing too much? What should I say? Should I just say nothing? Ah, I’m too high!” Just calm the down and chill out. Everything is going to be all right. Ride it out.

2. The Klutz

stoner-weed-girls-blazed (249)

This stoner is somehow always managing to break the piece. He reaches for his Gatorade and knocks over your most treasured bong. Best bet is to keep your beloved pieces outta harms way from his guy, maybe bubble wrap the bong when it’s his turn to rip.

3. The Mcguyver

types-of-stoners-mcguyver-stonerdays

Awesome stoner! This stoner is always coming up with new ways to smoke the reefer. He makes his own bongs, pipes and any other smoking creation he can master up. Be prepared to get hella stoned in new ways!

4. The Chemist

happy-420-stoned-marijuana (12)

The Stoner Chemist loves to smoke dabs. He’s got his gear with him and he’s ready to torch this shit. Items he brings along: his torch, his dab tool, his nail, and not to forget his bong. He’s a true mad scientist! Take a dab and get blown away. This THC is gonna knock your socks off. “A Dab Will Do Ya!”

5. The Contact High Guy 

types-of-stoners-contacthigh2-stonerdays

This guy/girl really isn’t a “true” stoner. Although they call them self’s a stoner, they never actually takes a hit. They just sits in the room with everyone and get “high” from a smoke filled room. Make em’ actually take a rip next time and show them the beauty of sweet Mary Jane.

6. The Coach

types-of-stoners-coach-stonerdays

The Coach is the type of stoner who is always explaining the best way how to take a hit, how long to hold it, and what kind of strand gets you the highest. He goes on and on about sativas vs. indicas and don’t forget your hybrids. Just humor this guy and shake your head. Most likely he probably does have a few good pointers up his sleeve.

7. The Closest Smoker Dad 

types-of-stoners-closet-dad-stonerdays2

Give it up for this Stoner! He deserves a gold metal. He’s the ultimate OG Stoner, he created the art of smoking pot. He’s a hippy at heart and will always have a love for marijuana. Now that he’s older and wiser he just hides the fact of being a pothead. Always listen to what he has to say and remember to respect your elders!

8. The Sneak A Toker

type-of-stoner-sneak-a-toker-stonerdays

Oh man, oh man! This stoner is poping up in rotation again and again. He’s stealing the next persons hit but no one seems to notice. He is a true master in disguise – The Sneak A Toker Smoker. Keep your red eyes open for this sneaky son of a gun!

9. The Quitter 

types-of-stoners-quitter2-stonerdays

This stoner is the stoner who is always trying to quit smoking the ganja. He’s gotta get clean for that new job he wants, his girlfriend is always threating to break up unless he quits, he’s trying to become “healthier” and the list goes on. The problem with this guy is he never seems to understand he’s just giving excuses. Dude your a stoner! Just be cool with it and get over the bullshit.

10. The Story Teller 

Man Smoking Joint

You’re in for trouble! Ha ha. This stoner never passes the blunt. they continuously talk aimlessly about “this one time” and “you gotta try this new..” He talks and talks and talks some more while chiefing on that blunt he’s suppose to pass. You’re gonna just have to grab the blunt out of his hand and be like dude… really? Puff, puff, pass!

10 Different Types of Stoners

Behind The Rasta Colors

Rasta Color StonerDays

Behind The Rasta Clothing Colors

This is the story Behind The Rasta Colors. There are some things that are extremely popular to stoners. Particularly aspects of the Rastafarian religion, which is most often associated with cannabis culture. More specifically, I’m referring to the three color combination that seems to follow the pot leaf every where it goes. The rasta clothing colors are super popular among the members of the stoner community. How many people know their origin? Even if you already know where the colors come from, it’s always good to brush up on cannabis related knowledge, just in case someone decides to test your know how.

Sometimes, black is included in the rasta colors but most stoners stick to the green, gold, and red. The famous color combo is shown on the Ethiopian flag. They stand for the loyalty that the Rastafari feel towards the state of Ethiopia during the reign of Haile Selassie, who was an emperor of Ethiopia that inspired great men such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela with his civil disobedience views. Rasta colors are interpreted differently but are shown on the Ethiopian flag (from bottom to top) as red, gold, and green. These colors are sometimes mixed up, sometimes even reversed. It all depends on the person viewing them, although that is genuinely the way that they are displayed on the flag.

the lion of judah stonerdays

Behind The Rasta Colors And The Flag

The colors each have their own meanings which are interpreted as follows (although again, some people may have different views on this). Red stands for the blood of martyrs, people that have given their lives to help others. The green represents the beauty, fertility, and green vegetation that Ethiopia holds within it’s boundaries. The gold, or the yellow, stands for the wealth of Africa. So these colors have a lot of meaning behind them and it’s important to know their history so that they become much more respected than they already are.

Rasta Higher State of Mind StonerDays

More then just a stoner symbol, the Rastafarian colors will be respected when used. The colors symbolize a lot more than just stoners. Things like this are important to know in the community. For more information on the Rastafarian religion, as well as the colors themselves, you can visit www.religionfacts.com

Stoner Guide; Four Creative Uses For Seeds And Stems

seeds and stems marijuana

Stoner Guide; Four Creative Uses For Seeds And Stems

Every stoner knows the best buds can wind up having seeds and stems in it. Cannabis is a plant after all. Most stoners end up storing their seeds and stems for long amounts of time, acquiring huge collections of plant matter that’s not smoke-able. Eventually, these seeds and stems end up getting tossed in the trash. You should be utilizing your stem stash to it’s full potential. But if you aren’t, here are four ways that you can get high off of that so-called trash.stoner seeds and stems marijuana

  • Make Topicals

    Cannabis based topicals are extremely helpful for those with areas of concentrated pain, like arthritis in the wrists, pain in the ankles, etc. By simply using your stem collection, you can craft easy topicals right at home. To start, make some cannabis coconut oil. Grind your stems up in to a powder. Mix it with the appropriate amount of coconut oil (it will vary depending on the amount of stems you have).

    Let the two simmer together for about 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. Strain the mix (let it cool a bit before attempting this, oil is very very very hot!) through a coffee filter in to a Pyrex container. While the mix is still warm, add in equal parts of beeswax and a double part of almond or olive oil. Add in additional ingredients like Vitamin E oil and essential oils for extra skin benefits and a good smell. Essential oils like lavender are a good pick. Pour the mixture into a reusable jar and store in a cool, dark place.

  • Create A Hemp Wick

    There are a great deal of stoners who prefer not to smoke using a butane based flame. Butane flames clearly leave a strong taste on the cannabis. The wicks, however, burn much cleaner. Using a knife, shave down the long stems until they are very thin fibers. Twist the fibers together tightly, over and over. Then, fold the rope in half and twist it together some more. Dip the rope in beeswax and wipe off the excess, hang the rope somewhere safe to dry.

  • Extract Stems For Bubble Hash

    Bubble hash is a solvent-less hash that is obtained by washing resin off of cannabis plants with freezing water. This water/cannabis mix is then filtered through numerous layers of special bubble bags. The final product is a very concentrated form of THC. It is possible to make using the buds of the plant, the shake from trim, or a large collection of stems.

  • Brew Tea (Classic!)

    In my early years, everyone used to say that the best way to use your stem collection was to make them in to tea. You simply decarb the stems first. Grind the stems up until they are almost a powder. Add the cannabis teabag in with another of your favorite teas. The cannabis tea adds a nice flavor to things like chamomile. Be sure to try stem tea before you knock it!

STONER TRAVEL DESTINATIONS STONERDAYS

Top 5 Stoner Travel Destinations

There are plenty of stoners that love to travel. The world is a huge place, full of wonders and interesting people that stoners can’t help but want to meet. But how does one know what places are 420 friendly and where to stay away from?

Easy… Read the following list! These awesome places will provide a great vacation spot where you can smoke and not worry about the stuff at home!

1. Kingston, Jamaica

Kingston Jamaica stonerdays

Jamaica is the home of ganja and is very popular in the stoner community. Cannabis is loved in this area and is grown by many farmers. Not to mention the sun is always shining and the water is beautiful. Most people are extremely friendly but be warned if thinking of visiting; do your research before visiting! Marijuana is still illegal on the island but everyone will try to sell it to you. Don’t get arrested abroad!

2. Amsterdam

amsterdam stonerdays

Continuously referred to as the mecca of marijuana use, Amsterdam is not only a 420 place but a beautiful destination that people will enjoy. Unfortunately, the 2012 ban put a stop to tourist marijuana usage in three of the country’s provinces and is expected to crawl across the rest of the state by 2013.

3. Toronto, Canada

skyline-canada-toronto-night-scenery-1080x19201

While it’s pretty cold up there, the Canadians have been working on getting their marijuana laws set up for a while now. They’ve been putting in to effect a huge plan to get medical marijuana to hundreds if not thousands of patients that currently can’t get medicine now.

4. Manama, Bahrain

Manama Bahrain Stonerdays

The laws here are still kind of strict but if you have the connections, the hash here is rumored to be amazing. While the majority of the population indulging in hash smoking, the residents are pretty intent on keeping the hash quiet. Not only that but you could end up paying $50 for a piece of hash as big as your thumb.

5. Barcelona, Spain

barcelona-spain-stonerdays

With possession being up to 40 grams, Spain is a great place for cannabis lovers. For the most part, you can smoke weed pretty much anywhere as long as you’re not making a scene. With awesome events such a Spannabis being hosted here, it’s a beautiful destination spot for traveling stoners!

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings

super-baked-buffalo-wings

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings are on point for every stonerA great addition for any party! The prep time is really only 15 minutes. Cannabis Buffalo Wings do have to be refrigerated for at least one hour so the flousuper-baked-buffalo-wingsr coating gets firm before baking them. We like to prep them the night before and refrigerate them over night. If you like your wings really spicy you can always add more cayenne pepper to the dry mixture and/or use a spicier hot sauce. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 1 hour 45 min

Cook Time: 60 min

Ready In: 2 hours 45 min

Ingredients

  • 20 chicken wings
  • ½ cup melted cannabis butter
  • hot pepper sauce ½ cup (we like to use Franks Red Hot)
  • salt ½ teaspoon
  • garlic powder ½ teaspoon
  • cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon
  • onion powder ¼ teaspoon
  • paprika ¼ teaspoon
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • Dash of black pepper

Directions

downloadSqueeze and pat dry your thawed wings until you have them as dry as you can get them. Combine all of your dry ingredients (salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, paprika, pepper, and flour) into a gallon sized sealable plastic bag. Once you have all the dry ingredients mixed in your plastic sealable bag add your wings, seal the bags, and toss until the wings are evenly coated with your flour mixture. Now place your coated wings on a cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour. This step can be done the night before which is awesome!

Once your wings have been chilling in the fridge and you’re ready to bake them preheat your oven to *425 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil or cooking spray and set aside.  Melt a ½ cup of cannabis butter on low heat. Once your cannabis butter is melted turn heat off and whisk in ½ cup of hot sauce. Separate your hot sauce and cannabis butter mixture equally into 2 separate small bowls and set aside.

Place your wings onto greased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes on one side. Flip them and bake for another 18-25 minutes. When wings are done remove from oven. Dredge wings in one of the sauce mixture in bowl and place on a new ungreased cookie sheet. Place wings in the still hot oven on broil for 5 minutes. Flip wings and broil for another 2-5 minutes. Remove wings and toss in the remaining cannabis hot wing sauce and serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.

What To Get A Stoner For Christmas

It’s December and for those the celebrate Christmas, it’s the season to buy a ton of presents. Stoners can sometimes be tough to buy for, especially for those who don’t feel comfortable buying a bag of weed from a street dealer. Even if you do feel okay buying bud for your friends and siblings, maybe your family isn’t 420 friendly and you need some more legal gifts to give while your aunts and uncles are around. If you’re looking for a stoner’s Christmas list, you’ve come to the right place. These gifts will be perfect for the pothead in your life, especially if you don’t feel like buying them a bag.

1. Growing equipment

stoner gifts stonerdays

This stuff can get pretty expensive so buying the pothead in your life some grow lights or soil might just make a stoner’s Christmas! Growing marijuana is very expensive so even the littlest bit helps! Buying things from a hydro store isn’t that sketchy either. After all, you’re just growing tomatoes in your house, right?

2. Stoner movie

half-baked-movie-stonerdays-stoners

There’s so many choices for this one that you may want to give something else! It’s almost impossible to pick the perfect stoner movie, although I’m sure that the receiver will love it no matter what. As long as it contains some sort of goofy humor, it’s sure to become a constantly watched DVD.

3. Cool lighters

Perhaps you seen an interesting pack of Bic lighters somewhere. There are awesome stocking stuffers, especially if you can find the really awesome rare ones.

Stoners always need lighters.

From the simple Mario games to Call Of Duty, stoners love video games. No matter what you buy them, they’re sure to be amused by it. Just make sure that they already have the system that the game is made for. It happens far more often than it should, getting games for the wrong system!

7. Glass

10. Cash

Project “I Will Walk Again”

Project “I Will Walk Again”

This is Wes Bandemers story. On June 10th 2006, his life would change forever.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
― Frank Herbert, Dune

About Wes Bandemer

I was born in San Diego California. At age two my family and I moved to Wyoming where my cousins lived. They had been racing and riding dirt bikes for as long as I can remember. My love for motocross started after my uncle and cousins took me out riding in the Badlands of Northern Wyoming. I was on an old white Z50 riding around enjoying every moment of it not knowing motocross would one day be the most important thing in my life. Many years went by with the occasional ride day, watching my cousin and uncle race, watching races on TV and building tracks in the dirt for our toy bikes.

wes-will-walk-again-(7)

My uncle and cousins quit racing and the motocross life dwindled as us kids just moved to the next thing that caught our attention. When I was 10 my family moved to the southern Louisiana town of Morgan City. I remember being bored one day and thinking about those days going out riding and it made me want to ride again. The next day I asked my parents if I could get a dirt bike. They said the common parent reply, “We’ll see”. My birthday or Christmas must have been coming up because not long after asking for a dirt bike, I got one! It was an old 95′ Honda XR100R that had been used as a pit bike by a racing family. Not long after that the whole family had bikes and we were going riding every other weekend or so. We would go to motocross tracks, trails, and sometimes just to a friend’s house near a levee with some nice sized jumps. I loved jumping more than anything. I knew some kids at school who raced and I decided that I wanted to get into racing.

wes-will-walk-again-(9)

I was getting bigger and that XR100R wasn’t the best bike for a motocross track. I ended up moving up to a 03’ CR85 Expert. That bike was crazy fast and was a huge difference from the 95’ XR100R. I adapted fast and felt that I was ready to race. My dad and I got up early one Sunday and started getting ready when it started pouring down rain. I called the track and the race had been canceled due to rain. Something about my first ever race being canceled did something weird to me. I was in Junior high school and the football season was about to get started. Dirt bikes took a backseat to football and before I knew it I was finishing up my freshmen year in high school with zero races under my belt. Before freshmen year was over my mom told me we were going to Wyoming over the summer to visit our family. We took all of our bikes with us. My brother and I rode with our cousins every chance we got on the trip. We went from different towns riding with different cousins.

wes-will-walk-again-(8)

One of our cousins had really gotten into racing motocross. He was in a championship series and invited us to a race just outside of the town we were staying at. After watching him race that day I realized how much I was missing out on. At the end of the day my Uncle asked me if I wanted to race the next day on my cousins KX125. I said I would just ride my 85 and didn’t want my first race to be on an unfamiliar bike. It’s funny though because I was 15 standing at 5’11” weighing 185lbs and my big CR85R had turned into my little CR85R. I felt awkward in the start gate lining up to kids who had to have blocks under their feet to hold their bike up, while I’m sitting there with my knees bent almost at 90 degrees. I ended up 4th in the 1st moto and 2nd in the 2nd moto for a 3rd overall out of a full gate in both motos.

wes-will-walk-again-(6)

That would be my last race for a whole year. When we got back to Louisiana I was pumped up to start racing, but definitely needed a bigger bike. My dad’s friend ended up having a CR250R for sale. My first race day on the 250 I entered the 250 C class and the 250 open class. I ended up getting 1st in the 250 C class and 3rd in the 250 open class. People from the race told me I was a natural and If I applied myself I could be pro in 2 years. So that was my goal and I started racing local races every weekend that I could.

The accident:

wes-will-walk-again-(5)

One day I got an invite in the mail to the top dog shootout race. I had raced the top dog shootout the year before and finished 8th in the final race so I definitely wanted to do it again. The top dog shootout was a 3 moto of 5 laps each per class format. The top 3 from every class were put into an 8 lap race winner take all. In order to train harder and get as much time on the bike every race day I always entered 2 classes and this meant 38 laps for me that day not including practice. In the 2nd moto of the 250 c class I wasn’t doing to great and decided to hold the gas a little longer on the right sweeping turn before the finish line jump which put  me at the far left of the jump face. That was the side where everyone who didn’t jump it, rolled it. This caused there to be no lip and when I jumped I was thrown in the air wrong. The front of my bike dropped right off the top of the jump. While I was in the air I was able to level out the bike, but when I landed I was thrown from the bike and landed on my face. My body bent over my neck backwards shattering the C4 vertebra. That was June 10th 2006.

Now:

wes-will-walk-again (2)

Prior to the accident, I tried to be the best athlete I could be and live as actively as possible. Now I’m doing whatever I can to regain some movement and hopefully some day, my independence! I do use marijuana for pain and for many reasons, I’m very strict on myself cause I have to be healthy in order for my body to recover and not damage any of the stem-cells I got in India. I don’t drink alcohol, I work out every day and I’ve been vegan for the past 2 years. I take one prescription pill a day from being paralyzed for 8 years. Doctors are pretty shocked by that, this only happens in raw cases and I am one. During my last trip to India I found an article about how cannabis and it healing the brain after an injury http://www.theweedblog.com/new-study-cannabis-may-grow-stem-cells-repair-the-brain-after-injury/ I feel like it then can also help repair my spinal cord. It also mentions how cannabis has neuroprotective and immunomodulatory capabilities and it is a nervous system stimulant. I feel more connected to my body after ingesting cannabis. I’m doing everything I can to get back on my feet.

Stoner News; Vets For Cannabis

Stoner News; Vets For Cannabis

For the vets that have served and come back from war (we thank you for your service!), smoking medical marijuana may be heading towards an uneasy patch for treating PTSD. Those that suffer from post traumatic stress disorder suffer from multiple problems. Sleep disorders, eating issues, fits of rage… The list goes on and on. Cannabis really helps suffers to alleviate symptoms of PTSD, especially the super strong strains that are coming out these days. With higher THC and CBD percentages, this medicine is crucial to these patients daily lives. But all of that could change with the oncoming legalization of marijuana.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays

One of the issues that has been presented regarding legalization is the fact that the government will take control of the marijuana production. If that happens, there is a chance that marijuana will become… Well… Crappy. If the government takes control, they may create a “generic” marijuana, if you will. The pot will all be the same potency, with no real taste of flavor. Kind of like the lamest cigar on the shelf… It’ll do what it needs to but it’s not going to impress anyone, you know? This presents a huge problem for PTSD sufferers. If the marijuana becomes substandard, then patients will have to smoke more of it to get an effect.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays 2

Augustine Stanley, an Iraq war veteran was actually fired from his job at Bernalillo Metropolitan Detention Center for holding a medical marijuana card. Not only is that incredibly awful morally, but seeing as how the man was prescribed a medical card by a doctor, it’s completely unfair for him to lose his job over it. The facility, located in New Mexico, apparently missed the memo that PTSD is included in the medical cannabis laws. Stanley, however, will continue to take cannabis to treat his PTSD, as he claims that the plant has given him his life back.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays 1

These people fought for our freedom. They have seen horrible things in their lifetimes. We cannot imagine what they have been through. That being said, there is absolutely no reason why cannabis should be held out of reach for PTSD sufferers. Seeing as how the pharmaceutical medicine used to treat PTSD has a high risk for suicide and severe withdrawal, cannabis presents itself as a much safer alternative. Vets fought for us. We can give them the same courtesy and fight for their right to medicate the safe way.

Canna Turkey

Canna Turkey; Stoner Cookbook

canna-turkey

Thanksgiving is almost here! So here is a great danksgiving turkey recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized (12- to 15-pound) turkey
  • 1/2 cup marijuana butter
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage

Directions:

Melt the cannabis butter in a small saucepan over low heat and blend in remaining ingredients. Stuff the turkey and/or season it with salt and pepper, if desired. Make a small incision in the skin of the turkey. Force a finger through the slit and break the contact between the skin and the meat. Using a meat injector, squirt half the butter mixture under the skin. Cook the turkey according to your favorite method, basting it with the remaining butter mixture every half hour until it’s done. We cooked it on a Traeger grill and it was juicier and more moist than any turkey I have ever had before.

Stoner Halloween Costumes

Stoner Halloween Costumes!

STONED-HALLOWEEN

It’s October! A great time of the year stoner or not. Halloween a night full of candy, laughter, parting a night of wonders for a ages.  A holiday with an extremely interesting history.  If you’re not going out for candy, chances are you’re going to a party. Parties on Halloween require a costume. So before you head out into the night with your red eye’s here are some dope Halloween costumes that you can do alone or with a friend! Enjoy.

1. Cheech And/Or Chong

cheech-and-choong6

Whether you go with someone or by yourself, everyone knows these two. They have that classic stoner look that’s easy (and cheap) to pull off! I definitely recommend this one for a duo but as I said, you can pick one and totally go solo!

2. A Bong

stonerdays-halloween-bong
It’s a pretty simple costume that can be bought or make yourself with some foam and paint! Just make sure that you air it out first. There’s a few for sale on eBay. People are sure to get a kick out of the dancing bong at the party. Just make sure that no one tries to light your bowl. Maybe you should wear a sign that says “No Smoking…”

3. Weed Leaf/Weed Princess

marijuana Halloween stonerdays
This is something that could work for both genders. If you’re a guy, you can decorate with foam, green clothes, and spray paint. It’s a pretty simple costume. But for ladies, Halloween is definitely about less being more. Since places like Spencers sell weed leis, you can purchase some of these and glue them to some booty shorts and top. Get some cool green body paint and go to town! Also, don’t forget the crown! 😉

Five Dope Stoner Bongs

Five Dope Stoner Bongs

Glassblowers deserve the ultimate respect from stoners everywhere. They work extremely hard to make beautiful glass art for us so that we can smoke our weed in style. There are thousands upon thousands of designs of glass and I’ve found five that I think are absolutely amazing.

1. The Rainbow Monster

Stoner pictures marijuana bongs | StonerDays

I made up that name because I think it fits this piece perfectly. It’s hard to tell what goes where but I would love to add something this intricate to my glass collection. This piece i so crazy, with the chain link piece and the amazing bubbled out parts that may or may not contain some other universe. The colors are vibrant and mesmerizing. A bong this beautiful would be hard to smoke out of, for fear of getting it dirty!

2. Lungs of Glass

Stoner marijuana bong | StonerDays

The title says it all! An incredibly eye catching piece of art, this bong is perfect for someone who loves the human anatomy. While delicate and complicated, I can imagine how hard a piece like this would hit! My only issue with something like this would solely be cleaning it! This is something that someone would love to show off at a smoke session to really impress their friends!

3. Brainnnnnns!!

brain bong

Everyone loves zombies. I hate horror movies but damn, do I love zombies! What better way to show your fandom of the living dead than this dope brains bong? With a perc that’s shaped like a half eaten zombie head and a bowl that’s shaped like a brain, this piece is the perfect Halloween surprise present… To a friend or yourself! Now pack it up in a case, bring it somewhere spooky and get stoned… October 31st is fast approaching!

4. Finn & Jake?

finn and jake bong

I saw this piece and immediately thought of Adventure Time. I think that it might be the color scheme of orange, black, blue, and white. Even so, the design is amazing, with the swirls and loops and an almost crown-like perc. Again, I bet this thing is a heavy hitter and could definitely combat any distress you’re feeling, just like Finn & Jake! 😉

5. Bang! Your Stoned.

bang bong

Enjoy this life sized AK-47 bong at your own risk… Of suffering far too long from couch lock. This piece was created by Mickelsen Studios and is fully functional. It even looks like it has bullets in the magazine. The things that people create with glass are absolutely amazing!

Always remember to respect the glassblowers! It’s their hard work that makes it possible for us to buy amazing pieces like those pictures above.

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide | Stoner Blog

One of the arguments against marijuana is that it may contribute to depression and suicide. Anti-pot smokers like to argue that stoners are seriously lazy and depressed but unfortunately for them, a study from Germany has been released saying that places where marijuana laws are lax and the plant is well loved, rates of suicide have actually decreased, rather than increase. Since suicide is most often caused by stress and marijuana takes away stress, it definitely makes sense that cannabis would allow people to release their stress, causing a drop in suicide rates.

636024217934235765164951305_suicide

 

California supplies anxiety patients with medical cards and both Delaware and New Mexico have PTSD listed on their lists of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. In these areas, there’s been a 5% reduction in suicide rates, especially in males age 20-29, according to this study. The results suggest that since those that use marijuana drink considerably less alcohol, which is a serious depressant. If stoners drink less, that would also mean that the amount of drunk driving accidents may decrease in these areas as well and that the benefits aren’t just restricted to those suffering from depression.

suicide2

Most subjects tested were male, since females are four times less likely to commit suicide and succeed, according to researchers. The bottom line of this study? Legalizing marijuana leads to an improvement in the mental well being of most young adult males, resulting in fewer suicides. So the next time that some tries to tell you that cannabis promotes depression and suicide, just remember that depression and suicide are caused by stress. Marijuana is used as a treatment for both of those illnesses so it only makes sense that places with lax cannabis laws would have lower rates of suicide.

Blunt Pipe

The Blunt Pipe | Stoner Blog

There’s a strong chance that if you have Instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen photos floating around of a blunt rolled in the shape of a corncob pipe. Not only that, but there are also photos of the blunt with joints stuffed in to what would be the bowl, creating an epic time bomb blunt that is sure to knock a novice stoner on their ass. The blunt pipe was born in to social media hysteria by the Instagram page @boppin954, definitely an architect stoner. The process for rolling the blunt pipe is much more simple then you think and can be done quite easily, thanks to a video sent to me by @boppin954 that breaks down the process.

2807b4f63cf411e3995622000a1f9812_8

The materials that you’ll need include the following; weed, two blunt wraps of your choice (or cigars I suppose… I’m not 100% sure what was originally used but I’m sure you could manage it with either), and scissors. To start the blunt pipe, the first step is to just simply roll a blunt. The amount of weed that you want to use it up to you but remember that you’re going to be adding weight to the end. Be sure that you account for the extra weight if you feel like rolling a monster blunt. It’s recommended that you roll a fairly average size blunt, about the length of a normal pipe.

4e64032c1bf511e3b07922000a1fbd9b_7

Once you’ve rolled the blunt, cut the second wrap to form a sort of bowl. Try to make as few cuts as possible, as reattaching everything might get a little bit difficult. Form the bowl but be sure to leave a hole large enough for the blunt at the bottom of the bowl. Once you have formed the entire bowl and attached the paper together, gently slide the end of the blunt in to the hole that you left in the bowl. Using a strip of blunt wrap, gently attach the bowl to the blunt by wrapping the strip around the part where the two meet.

e770d5861a6511e3ab4322000a1fa430_7

The last step is to fill the bowl of the blunt pipe with freshly ground up bud. Don’t pack it too tightly or it won’t burn. Fill it almost to the top with bud and you’ve finished your very own blunt pipe. This roll is incredibly popular right now and it’s definitely something that all blunt loving stoners should try out. Much thanks to @boppin954 for providing the tutorial. If you have any questions of the roll of the blunt pipe, you can contact him via Instagram! Enjoy your blunt pipe!

Marijuana and Weight Loss

Marijuana and Weight Loss | Stoner Blog

 Stoner Ladies listen up. Marijuana and Weight Loss are now being put together in the same sentence! So go ahead ladies, take another hit off that beautiful bong!

A new research study on marijuana reports that regular use of marijuana consumption may in fact be a contributor in weight loss. This conclusion comes from a report published in the American Journal of Medicine. This is great news to all of us Stoner Men and Women out here in the cannabis community.

green-tea-weight-loss

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Nebraska, Harvard and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, examined 4,657 adults, 579 of whom regularly smoked reefer.

“We found significant associations between marijuana use and smaller waist circumferences,” the researchers report.

A significant amount of potheads had 16% lower levels of insulin than the non-smokers in the study. Awesome news, you got to love to hear this stoners. Thumbs up!

The hormone Insulin, regulates metabolism of fat and carbs. Maybe that’s why smokers of the miracle plant marijuana are less prone to diabetes. Good thing because I’m sure none of us cannabis users want to develop diabetes.

Well I may not be a doctor folks but all signs point to continuing to smoke the reefer goodness. Stoners pack up those bowls and make sure they’re filled to the top with that good kush. Smoke weed, be happy, and Stay Blazed!

Stoner Commandments

Stoner Commandments | Stoner Blog

The weed gods have spoken and set forth Ten Commandments that stoners everywhere should follow!

These commandments are important to the stoner community and should be followed! Disregarding the Stoner Commandments is obviously a violation and is grounds for some serious attitude from your fellow pothead buddies. Be sure to remember these ten things next time you’re getting baked!


 

1. Don’t hog the piece!

Hit it and pass it! It’s unfair if you’re telling a longwinded story and your poor, sober friend next to you is salivating over the bowl that you keep waving around in front of his face. Hogging the bowl is a surefire way to get your friends mad!

article-2312248-196781A6000005DC-313_634x423


2. Avoid asking for fronts.

If someone is selling weed in your circle of friends, don’t start begging for ones and fives from your buddies. If you don’t have money, then you don’t smoke. Unless you have nice friends that’ll smoke you up. Just make sure to return the favor the next time they need help!marijuana-generic-in-bag


3. Thou shalt waketh & baketh… EVERY DAY!

The wake and bake is a crucial part to every pothead’s day and without that first bowl, nothing is possible. Make sure that when you wake up in the morning, you be sure to fit “smoking” in to your morning routine!

stoner-ganja-pothead-reefer (207)


 

4. Torching the bowl means someone is going to take it away from you.

It’s not hard to corner a bowl, even if there is a fan in the room. Just make sure to keep the lighter or wick to one side of the bowl, rather than just shoving the whole flame in to the center of the bowl. Give everyone the chance to enjoy that fresh green taste!

stonerdays marijuana bongs-(2)


 

5. If you take a hit from the bong and can’t manage to clear it.

Try not to waste the smoke by handing it to the person next to you without covering the top. Wasted smoke is wasted THC and no one likes to waste that!

passing a bong stonerdays


 

6. So you finally bought that super dope lighter that’s been taunting you at the gas station for a week.

Now it’s your job to keep track of it. Your best bet is to buy a boring lighter for smoke sessions. Using your favorite Bic while smoking at a party will get your lighter stolen and that’s no one’s fault but yours. Keep track of your Bics!

StonerDays-Stay-Blazed-Marijuana-420 (3)


 

7. No stoner shall disrespect another stoner without instigation… AND DON’T INSTIGATE.

Causing issues with other stoners is definitely a no-no. Respect is a huge deal in the pot community. Get along or get out is my motto.

funny stoner pictures stonerdays


 

8. Don’t… EVER… Rip off a fellow stoner.

This not only means stealing weed but stealing glass, smoking utensils (dabbers, nails, grinders, etc), and papers. This also means that you should never sell weed for more than you know it’s worth. That means don’t sell your little brother a gram for $40. That’s absurd and completely immoral.

selling weed marijuana-pictures stonerdays (6)


 

9. Never waste perfectly good marijuana!

Throwing out vaporized weed is included in this. If you prefer to smoke out of a vape, please make sure that you are saving your vaporized weed. You can still make food with it and you get to use your weed twice! Please tell me why this would be a bad thing for any stoner?!

stoner-ganja-pothead-reefer (466)


 

10. Don’t panic.

Some stoners get paranoid but you just have to chill out! Getting riled up while around your friends will earn you a black check mark and no one will want to smoke with the paranoid pot head. 😉

Stoner Couples Finding the Time

Stoner Couples Finding the Time | StonerDays

Relationships these days can be difficult, most people are just to busy with work, school or just daily tasks,  finding the time to invest in a relationship can be a pain. With the world constantly changing in technology social medias have made it easy, giving those that are busy the time to meet people on the go. Thankfully for stoners, smoking with friends can be a great way to meet new people and if you’re single or perhaps you just need to make new friends in general. Basing a relationship on weed can lead to a very awesome partnership between two people, your conversations will be simple and you’ll both more then likely get a couple of good laughs in.

stoner-couples-stonerdays-1

 

Smoking together gives couples a nice pass time. The process of rolling up together or perhaps just packing a bong together is something that is much better when in the company of another person. Having a partner there with you almost always guarantees you have a wake and bake partner, someone to share stoney stories with, or someone to make late night fast food runs with. Even stoners who tend to be more on the anti social side can’t say that they dislike smoking with a significant other. You can relax easier, laugh more, and you can just enjoy each others company.

stoner-couples-stonerdays-2

Cannabis is also said to be an aphrodisiac of sorts, considering that the substance increases blood flow and makes the body more sensitive to touch. The plant is often used as a sexual stimulant, increasing not only the great feelings that accompany sex but the connection to your partner as well, giving you both a feeling of oneness. There are tons of books on this subject, all claiming that cannabis is a great way to spice up a couple’s sex life, simply by being smoked beforehand. And once you’ve experienced this, chances are that you won’t want to ever have sex without cannabis again.

stoner-couples-stonerdays-3

The couples that smoke together tend to stay together. Not just because the plant advocates for great sex but also because stoners tend to be less violent and more apt to discussions rather than fights, allowing the relationship to be less turbulent than say, a couple that constantly drinks alcohol. Two stoners definitely make a great match!

Study To Begin On Veterans With PTSD

Study To Begin On Veterans With PTSD | Stoner Guide

Of all of the patients that need cannabis, veterans are some that need it the most. Suffering from PTSD and other after effects of the wars they’ve been in lead to some of the highest suicide rates in the country. With very limited VA medical options, our soldiers are forced to ingest Oxycontin, Xanax, Percocet, and other heavy drugs to combat their symptoms. This leads to high addiction rates among vets, showing that there needs to be another way to treat PTSD in the people who fought for our country. But finally, a bit of good news for vets hoping to have PTSD recognized as a qualification for medical marijuana.

Researchers in Maryland and Arizona are on the lookout for veteran volunteers that are willing to smoke up to two joints worth of pot a day in a new study that is aimed at finding out if cannabis actually relieves the symptoms of PTSD. “We’re not arguing that cannabis is a cure but our hypothesis is that is will at least reduce symptoms,” said the study organizer Dr. Sue Sisley. The $2.2 million study was paid for by a grant from the state of Colorado to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies will be conducted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland as well as Sisley’s Scottsdale Research Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. More than 100 veterans have already volunteered for the study.

The selected participants will be the first randomized, controlled trial in the United States to objectively test cannabis as a legitimate treatment for PTSD. After the subjects undergo a two week screening and assessment process, they will be assigned to smoke one out of four types of cannabis. One will have high levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Another will have high levels of CBD, which is the suggested antidepressant in cannabis, as well as reducing anxiety. The third will be an equal balance of both CBD and THC. This is the group that the Veterans Alliance for Medical Marijuana reports is generally the favored kind of cannabis among combat veterans who are using cannabis to relieve PTSD. And the final group will be a placebo and will get no significant levels of either THC or CBD.

For the first two days, the veterans will be observed for four hours after smoking to ensure that they have no negative reactions to the cannabis they’ve ingested. In addition, they will have to take a physical exam and an in-depth psychological assessment, once in the beginning of the study and again at the end. There will also be regular blood tests and other body monitoring throughout the study. But after all of that, the participants will be given their weed to smoke (up to 1.8 grams a day). They will be able to smoke as much as they want within that limit, although electronic vapes cannot be used. The participants will also be given an iPad to track their use, both writing about the experience and providing a video journal. They will also wear a watch designed to track their sleep patterns.

After the three weeks is up, there will be a two week washout period in which the vets will not smoke at all and then begins the next set of tests and assessments. At the end, they will be asked if they will continue to use medical marijuana or if they will find another method of treatment for their symptoms. If this trial is a success, officials at the California based Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) says they intend to seek use of smoking botanical cannabis as a federally approved prescription drug.

A New Study On Cannabis/Alcohol Aggression Shows…

A New Study On Cannabis/Alcohol Aggression Shows… | Stoner Blog

Alcohol and cannabis are placed side by side for comparison constantly. People are always talking about how “cannabis is more dangerous than alcohol” or “alcohol is more dangerous than cannabis”. There are those who suggest cannabis laws reflect alcohol laws, ie public intoxication, open container laws, and in those horrible states, internal possession. But are alcohol and cannabis even in the same league? The same sport? The only reason anyone compares the two is because alcohol also had to go through prohibition before it became widely accepted/advertised/used. A new study produced from the Netherlands and published in the journal Psychopharmacology takes a shot at shooting down the “cannabis is more dangerous than alcohol” myth once and for all.

The study was pretty simple, actually. Take three groups of people. One group of twenty individuals who drink (three drinks a day per man and two a day per woman), twenty-one heavy cannabis users (those who smoked at least three times a week), and a group of twenty control subjects who didn’t partake in either substance. The researchers got the alcohol group drunk enough so that they’re BAC measured at 0.08, which is the level at which you become impaired. And then the researchers got the cannabis users high, giving them 300 micro-grams of THC per kilogram of body weight, ingested via vaporizer. The control group just sat around and did nothing.

Each group then underwent a series of tests. First, they started with the “single category implicit association test”, meaning the subjects had to match positive and negative words to photos that showed aggressive behavior, such as punching or kicking. The second test consisted on the subjects playing a game on a computer. In the game, they had an opponent that they were told was winning money away from them but their adversary was only a computer. Aggression in each subject was measured before and after the test by asking each participant how angry they felt on a 1-100 scale. To be sure of their findings, the researchers had the alcohol and cannabis groups complete the tests a second time, a week later and sober, just to gather all possible information.

The results? Alcohol users rated themselves as more angry when they were drunk and they also tried harder to undermine the computer opponent in the game. The stoner group, on the other hand, showed less aggression toward the computer game and overall, less anger throughout the entire test. This study falls in with the others of it’s kind, including the one done in 2014 that showed couples who smoke have a lower rate of domestic violence. It just goes to show that those dramatic headlines that shout about stoners in psychosis jumping off of buildings or shooting themselves (while tragic) probably contain other factors and are not commonplace to begin with.

Millennials Are The New Hippies

Millennials Are The New Hippies | Stoner Blog

When I was in high school, my algebra teacher always told me that if I had been born when she was, I would’ve been one of the flower crown wearing hippies of the time. It was never something I thought much about seeing as how I didn’t even really smoke weed until I had left high school (I tried once or twice but we were young and the aluminum can wasn’t that appealing to me). But she made that comment a few times over the course of my last year in high school and it never really struck me as anything important until now.

The hippies were the “rebels” of their generation. They weren’t going to be forced in to going along with mainstream culture and they didn’t listen to their parents. War wasn’t something they wanted a part in, they just wanted to chill and do drugs with their friends. They lived in small studio apartments in the city with obnoxiously high rent and mostly lived paycheck to paycheck, not far off from what the millennial generation does today. Us millennials call things by different names; ecstasy is called Molly, LSD is acid, and people love mushrooms again. Even those of us who went out and got “real” jobs still enjoy a blunt after a long day of work and those who don’t have “real” jobs spend time goofing off and still trying to figure out what to do with their lives (we’ll hopefully have that figured out by age thirty).

Millennials always reminisce about the 60s and 70s. Those were the times to be alive but if you really think about it, those times are repeating themselves now. We have serious issues to deal with now just like there was then, such as the approaching election in November or the racial issues that still divide our country. But when we aren’t having panic attacks about the future and the violence in the world, we spend our time at festivals and parties or with our friends, trying as hard as we can to continue to feel young for as long as possible and trying to avoid letting the sourness of the world engulf us.

It’s 2016. The millennial generation will soon be the ruling force in the country and hopefully, we can do some things better than the Baby Boomers before us. We’ve already done big things; we made weed legal after years of prohibition. We have lobbied for cannabis and have been arrested for it. We have seen our friends and family go to jail for trying to help themselves and others by providing natural medicine. But we’ve seen studies released that show cannabis can help to treat cancer, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, depression, migraines, anxiety, ALS, multiple sclerosis, and the list keeps going. We’ve proven that stoners aren’t lazy, stay at home losers. We’ve changed the minds of Baby Boomers and those suffering from Reefer Madness. We’ve come a long way.

Cannabis Use and Donating Blood

Cannabis Use and Donating Blood | Stoner Blog

Recent tragedies have called for the community to rise up and donate blood. The shooting in Orlando, Florida specifically required a large amount of blood and many people rose to help the people who lived through this horrible event. But, as some know, there are conditions for donating blood. Such as the fact that if you have gotten a tattoo or piercing in the last six months, you can’t donate blood. So what about stoners? People who smoke tend to be very generous but could being a pothead prevent you from helping your fellow humans?

The answer seems to be no. The American Red Cross, the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the US, collects and processed 40% of the blood supply. They distribute it to about 2600 hospitals and transfusion centers around the country. In their Common Questions pamphlet for those new to donating blood, the Red Cross states that while they do not encourage the use of controlled substances, “marijuana or alcohol use does not necessarily disqualify you from giving blood as long as you are feeling well. If you have EVER injected any illegal drugs, you can never give blood.”

When the American Red Cross was asked directly about cannabis users giving blood. They stated that they do not test for THC but they will not accept someone who is under the influence at the time of the donation. They suggest that people who are donating are well rested, well fed, and “feeling well”, which basically translates into “not high”. If the Red Cross staff believe you’re stoned when you show up to donate blood, they will turn you down. If you smoked the night before, you’re good to go.

Since your body breaks THC down in to 11-OH-THC and 11-nor-Carboxy-THC, which is non-psychoactive. Enzymes in the liver break the 11-OH-THC down even further in to the 11-nor-Carboxy-THC. The process takes a few hours but when it’s done, you’re no longer high.

Cannabis will not prevent you from donating blood. If you just take a night off from smoking and wake up, eat breakfast, and give blood, you could save a life. Being a stoner doesn’t mean you don’t have to get involved and now you have no excuse to (unless you a have gotten a new piercing or tattoo). It’s important to remember that the summer months are the hardest for blood drives, as people partying on vacation are less able to donate. Get out there and donate blood!

Cannabis and Music

hommie-cannabis-stonerdays

Cannabis and Music | Stoner Blog

Stoners will tell you until they’re blue in the face that smoking cannabis makes music sound much better. From the beats to the lyrics, potheads swear that tunes sound better and mean more when you’re high. Weed is a popular concert-going item and many people smoke a joint while jamming to their favorite musician, whether it be at a hip hop concert or a basement metal show. But why do stoners like music so much? Why do these two always seem to go hand in hand?

Music has been proven to have positive effects on the mind. Back in high school, the “cool” teachers used to let kids listen to their iPods while taking tests or some would play Mozart or Bach from a CD player. Even plants know that music is healthy, studies have shown that plants will react in positive ways (depending on the vibrational frequencies) to music that is played for them during growth. New Scientist, a medical journal, among others have shown studies that prove music is beneficial to all kinds of medical situations. It can be used to focus the mind, calm down, or energize, depending on the kind of music. Cannabis has been shown to help with these things as well, so perhaps the two form some sort of amazing effect when combined?

A study conducted in 2011 regarding the modulation of auditory and visual processing where the subjects were given THC and CBD showed that THC activated and deactivated certain areas in the brain which controlled the hearing and seeing senses. CBD did not have an effect on these areas. So THC has an effect on the way we hear music as well as the way that we process visual items. It was stated by Nina Kraus (Northwestern University) that the brain uses neruons that communicate sensory information through electrical pulses. In this case, it’s the sound of the music. The increased sensory perception in the endocannabinoid system is caused by the binding of the receptors to the brain. Dopamine is released and less anxiety-causing signals are sent, which lets the stoner chill out and enjoy the music more carefully and with less internal (and external) distraction.

But since cannabis is still considered a schedule 1 drug by the federal government, there aren’t many more studies regarding the connection between cannabis and music. As the two seem to have similar effects on the human body, they could be used as a kind of therapy for people suffering with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and a multitude of other afflictions. In the meantime, it’s suggested by Stonerdays that you roll up a joint or pack your bong and smoke to some of your favorite songs. Doctors orders.

Five Reasons To Watch The Lego Movie Stoned

STONED

Five Reasons To Watch The Lego Movie Stoned | Stoner Blog

Let’s face it, kids movies these days aren’t just made for kids. They’re cute and flashy, with the occasional underlying adult themes. One of the best things about being an adult and watching kids movies? Watching them stoned. Rolling a fat joint and watching the Lego Movie sounds pretty great right? If you don’t think so, here’s five reasons why you should view this hilarious (and somewhat dark) movie that was definitely made for both kids and adults a like.

stoned-lego-sd

  1. The Colors: This movie is incredibly bright and fun to look at. Since the characters are constantly jumping through different Lego worlds, the scenery changes constantly. From the Lego Wild West to Cloud Cuckoo Land (it’s as strange as it sounds), your stoned mind will be mesmerized by the bright colors and different architecture.
  2. The Actors: If you aren’t attracted to the colorfulness of the movie, you should know that it has some hilarious talent in it as well. Chris Pratt (Parks And Recreation, Guardians of the Galaxy) voices the main character, while Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) plays another. Throw in the fact that Nick Offerman (Parks And Recreation) and Will Ferrel (you know who Will Ferrel is) also make an appearance and you have a cast full of people who are going to make you laugh, especially if you’re stoned. The movie also features Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson.
  3. The Nostalgia: Considering that this is an entire world crafted out of Legos with very few real life scenes, this movie is great for the stoned mind. Most of the adults that are smoking now used to play with Legos back in the 90s. The Lego Movie brings back memories of times when we didn’t have to pay bills and go to work. You’ll feel the nostalgia even more when you’ve had a few bong rips and start thinking about Silly Putty, Polly Pocket, and that creepy crawler oven that allowed you to freak out your family and friends with rubber insects.
  4. The Adult Jokes: Right in the start of the film, we are greeted by the main character, Emmett, going about his daily business. He pays $42 for a coffee at a shop that resembles Starbucks and if you can’t sadly laugh at that while you’re stoned because it’s so relate able, I don’t know what to tell you.
  5. The Underlying Message: The Lego Movie is definitely cute and it will make you laugh but the message that the movie really seems to want to drive home? Society’s desire to stamp out creativity and imagination. The characters are all working for The Man, which is a common reoccurring theme in a lot of stoner-geared movies. Since stoners usually think of themselves as being open minded, this movie is a great visualization of the breakaway from traditional thinking and doing your own thing.

Government Neglects Medical Marijuana As PTSD Explodes

According to the Veterans Administration, which is responsible for the PTSD care of the nation’s vets, there are currently over 3 million service men and women suffering from PTSD. From flashbacks and insomnia to anxiety, nightmares and depression, veterans are coming home to America in need of help on many levels, and the last thing they need is “chemical” medicine. Though “psych” meds are prescribed almost across the board for “psychological” issues, the psychiatric manual DSM-5 doesn’t say a word about nutrition and herbs.

PTSD-7

It doesn’t have a section on Cannabis sativa either. In many states, post-traumatic-stress-disorder or PTSD is one of the many conditions that patients are hoping will be approved for medical marijuana. A growing number of veterans, however, are tired of waiting for the law to catch up with what they know in their hearts and minds to be the answer.

Veterans & Cannabis: Government neglects Veterans as PTSD epidemic explodes

PTSD-1

The number of military personnel and veterans diagnosed with and living with PTSD is higher now that it has ever previously been (Veterans and PTSD 2015). Another astounding fact is that half of these individuals never seek medical treatment for various reasons. Some argue that the Veterans Affairs Department insufficiently handles the treatment of PTSD by simply using trial and error through a list of psychoactive medications and therapy with psychiatrists who don’t seem to really care.

The combination of a feeling of hopelessness and a lack of viable treatment options often lead to suicide among those with military-related PTSD, specifically those from the Afghanistan-Iraq War. Currently, there is an average of 22 suicides a day, up from a low of 18-a-year in 2007, based on a 2012 VA suicide Data Report.

While looking for alternative treatments, many have asked the question can cannabis treat PTSD? The answer is yes, and thousands living with PTSD have found that cannabis has been a more effective treatment than any medication prescribed by the VA. Smoking it can relieve anxiety, help individuals sleep deeply and without disturbance, and also help to stave off depression. Some medical professionals even argue that the Cannabidiol (CBD) can actually help repair the brain, healing those pathways that facilitate the symptoms of PTSD.

But is it better or worse?

PTSD-2

The effects on PTSD in studies on cannabis are limited and sometimes contradictory. The VA is also concerned with a rise in the number of veterans they have documented as having what they term “marijuana dependence”. While it can help with mental health problems, it has also been suggested by some studies to cause latent or subdued pre-existing mental issues to come to the surface, such as hereditary schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

For some veterans, what is known as “cannabis use disorder” can have a negative effect on their road to wellness. Described as an inability to sleep or increase in irritability after ceasing use of the substance, this occasionally seen withdrawal symptom is far milder than that of many prescription painkillers, let alone dangerous drugs like heroin or meth. For a sufferer of mental anxiety like PTSD, however, sometimes even this mild withdrawal after steady use to treat their condition can cause negative outcomes.

A Life-Long Struggle: Demand relief now

PTSD-3

For those who fight for their country and, in the process, for their lives, the trauma inflicted is far deeper than just physical injury. The scars of war can affect the human psyche for years, for decades, for life.

Hidden PTSD amongst our culture: Natural solution

PTSD-4

In today’s modern times of self-help, therapy, and emotional understanding, health professionals have discovered an epidemic of hidden PTSD patients amongst our civilian culture. In its true definition, PTSD involves lingering negative feelings that can result from any adverse experience- getting fired, the end of a relationship, chronic illness, or even just a time when you feel like you failed at something- and that limits a person in any way.

However, even with the mounds of evidence supporting Cannabis as an all-natural solution, in November, the U.S. Senate passed an amendment that would allow VA doctors to recommend medical marijuana to vets in states where it’s legal, but that proposal failed to pass the House. So depending on the state you live, if you’re a veteran you can potentially lose access to your pain medications and treatments for testing positive for cannabis.

On average, 22 veterans commit suicide every single day and many veterans turn to medical marijuana to ease the symptoms of PTSD, but what happens when medical marijuana isn’t effective, poses legal risks or isn’t an option for you?

Well, we’ve found an effective all-natural solution for you. It’s called 1Hour Break®, and it will change how the world handles PTSD.

Kava Kava spray, saves the day

PTSD-5

1Hour Break® is a California-based company providing all-natural remedies for PTSD and anxiety. They’ve spent the last few years perfecting a breakthrough sublingual tincture made from highly concentrated extracts of organic KavaKava, Passion flower, Lemon balm, and Lobelia herbs.

Taking 1Hour Break® to relieve PTSD, anxiety, or panic attacks is simple. Anytime you feel anxious, all you do is spray 5 sprays (about 1ml) of 1Hour Break® beneath your tongue, wait ten seconds, and then swallow. Because it is absorbed underneath the tongue, it bypasses the digestive system, so the effects are felt immediately. Kava Kava, sourced from the South Pacific, is the main ingredient and has been proven safe and therapeutic for relieving anxiety. It works by binding to various receptors in the amygdala that regulate feelings of fear and anxiety, and in turn promotes calmness, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. It’s like getting a big hug from Mother Nature herself.

1Hour Break with cannabis: Supercharge your buzz

PTSD-6

As someone who has suffered from PTSD and feelings of fear, doubt, panic, avoidance, anger, irritability, sadness, shame, vulnerability, nightmares, and distrust for most of my adult life, I have tried everything available to relieve my anxieties. I have never used a natural anti-anxiety medication that has worked… Ever. So, believe me when I tell you, I went into this a skeptic. So without anything to lose, I had the chance to try 1Hour Break® Version 2.0 in Mint flavor and I was surprised by the effects.

After just five sprays I noticed a pleasurable tingling sensation under my tongue and I quickly felt my heart tempo slow, my panic subdue, my mind release its tension and I felt a warm blanket of calmness over me. It was a familiar calm associated with Xanax but a million times better. The taste was minty and fresh, and the numbness lasted about 20 minutes and assured me it was working, and I remained calm and relaxed for well over an hour. I’m truly thankful that a product like this exists, it will now be an integral part of my “tool kit”. I’m certain 1Hour Break® is effective and can benefit the thousands of people currently dealing with PTSD related issues

1Hour Break® along with cannabis is simply the perfect all-natural combination – a no-brainer, in fact. Imagine experiencing a strong, uplifting, clear-headed buzz without any anxious side effects. You’ll experience only the positive feelings of a supercharged buzz, and none of the negative.

As a special promotion, 100 lucky Stoner Days readers will have a chance to try 1Hour Break® Free on us, you only pay for shipping. Click HERE to redeem your Free Bottle! ($29 Value).

Are Dabs Really The “Crack” of Cannabis?

dabs-crack

Are Dabs Really The “Crack” of Cannabis? | Stoner Blog

Some of the old school stoners or some that haven’t really been on the internet (or people that are still stuck in reefer madness) genuinely think that cannabis concentrates are comparable to crack. Confusing to say the least, especially since cannabis concentrates (and “dabs”) have been around since the 80s. The only reason we’re now hearing about this now is that cannabis in the spotlight… And the people who don’t like it need something to complain about.

If you don’t know, dabs are a concentrated form of THC. The honey/wax/crumble like substance in place on a heated piece of titanium, glass, quartz, or ceramic and the heat vaporizes the concentrate. Dabs are stronger than buds, testing anywhere between 50 to 90% THC. Flower usually tops out at around 29% THC. Some people, the high from a dab lasts far longer than a bong rip, which leads some people to prefer dabs, for the fact that you need less coupled with the purity.

stonerdays-logo-smallWhile these side effects are blamed mostly on dabs, it does also happen with cannabis flower.

On one hand, you have people who will smoke dabs and freak out. They will get extremely paranoid and anxious. There are those who will even get sick from the dabs.They will throw up, have panic attacks, and feel weak/dizzy. While these side effects are blamed mostly on dabs, it does also happen with cannabis flower. Every once in a while, you will encounter someone who has smoked a bowl and had a massive panic attack. There are also people who smoke dabs and freak out. Seeing as how every individual processes THC differently, this fact isn’t surprising.

Justin Kander, the head of research and development at Aunt Zelda’s (a cannabis concentrate company that craft edibles), says that cannabis concentrates are not like heroin or crack but that the high doses should be taken properly. From what he has seen in his time in the industry, Kander says that continued use over a long period of time can potentially cause permanent paranoia and anxiety. Even longer use may even increase the risk of brain damage but that is incredibly rare and almost unheard of. Another thing to be aware of is the increased tolerance. Prolonged use of cannabis concentrates can cause extremely high tolerances, which will ultimately result in you having to take a break.

stonerdays-logo-smallSome people handle substances differently and there are always people who will end up getting really unlucky.

Dabs are not like crack or meth or heroin. Some people handle substances differently and there are always people who will end up getting really unlucky. The high dose of cannabis concentrate may cause negative effects but for patients with cancer or other severe illnesses, it can be lifesaving. The general consensus? Dabbing every day might end up having negative side effects. Sometimes it’s good to just take a concentrate-tolerance break.

Does Marijuana Give You Anxiety? You’ll Need This | Stoner Blog

Anxiety can be completely debilitating, just ask anyone who suffers from the mind-numbing, pulse-racing mental disorder. As a person suffering with anxiety for over 14 years I can attest that there are a variety of prescription drugs that can help tame the unrest, but most life-long suffers worry about the long term effects of Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications. Many patients turn to medical marijuana as a way to ease the symptoms of anxiety, but what happens when marijuana isn’t effective, triggers irrational paranoia, or you feel it’s not appropriate to medicate, such as at work, at school, or with family?

Well, now we have an all-natural solution for you. It’s called 1Hour Break®, and it will change how the world handles anxiety.

Cannabis & Memory

cannabis-and-memory

Cannabis & Memory | Stoner Blog

For years, people have believed that cannabis effects the memory formation in the human brain. Those against the plant have insisted that long term use (or even short term) will kill your brain cells and make you dumb. This fact is highly contested, with supporters arguing that some of the smartest, most successful people have admitted to smoking (and enjoying) cannabis. Not only that but memory is a difficult thing to measure and there are different types of memory, such as short term memory and long term memory, among others. So what does cannabis do to memory?

The main compound in cannabis, THC, has shown to have an effect on short term memory. It creates a difficulty in encoding memories. Those who use cannabis sometimes show trouble in forming new memories while under the influence. While this is like being “black out” drunk, the effects are not as severe as cannabis. Short term recall is also effected by THC. Stoners have difficulty recalling events while high and even after the high wears off. But those who continuously indulge in cannabis have shown in studies to develop a tolerance to these effects of THC. The more cannabis is smoked, the less difficulty the user had recalling the memory.

Studies show that the memory impairments tend to be temporary. One of these such studies showed that while THC can effect memory for two hours after consumption, there are no lasting effects after 24 to 48 hours. It was also shown that cannabis will not effect the ability to recall existing memories, like your high school, your address, your siblings, or your parents.

As for cannabis and long term memory, a study published by JAMA Internal Medicine, it was shown that people who consume more cannabis over five or more years developed worse verbal memory recall as compared to those who consumed less cannabis or none at all. The study consisted of nearly 3400 Americans over a period of twenty five years. Verbal recall was tested and Reto Auer, a professor at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, was the study’s main author. The results showed that those subjects who smoked every day could recall 8.5 words out of 15. Subjects who smoked less or none at all could recall 9 out of 15 words. While .5 words doesn’t seem like a whole lot, Auer suggested that the longer someone used cannabis, the worse their memory would become. But only 8% of those in the study considered themselves heavy smokers and they also didn’t find that the 8% had any other cognitive abilities impacted by their cannabis use, such as the ability to focus and process information.

New studies are being released that are suggesting that cannabis may actually benefit memory and the plant is being studied for use in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and Parkinson’s. CBD, one of the other compounds found in cannabis, has promise of being able to also fight the brain damage caused by alcohol abuse and binge drinking. CBD reduced alcohol induced cell death in the brain by up to 60%, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. So does cannabis have an effect on memory? More research is definitely needed to gain a definitive answer but as of right now, the effects don’t seem nearly as bad as someone who drinks a lot of alcohol.

Pizza Box Turned Pipe

Pizza Box Turned Pipe | Stoner Guide

Stoners know how to create something out of nothing… Or better yet, how to create something out of a list of seemingly non-related items. There are hundreds of jokes about how a stoner can grab anything around them and turn it in to a smoking device. Pipes have been made from fruits, vegetables, recyclables, candy, and many other objects. But a new company called Push For Pizza is taking this stoner creativity to a whole new level with their new app.

14-push-for-pizza-pipe.w560.h560

It’s called Push For Pizza and it’s revolutionary in stoner pizza ordering. Not only does the app offer legitimate one click ordering but when your pizza arrives, the box can be taken apart and reassembled as a pipe that you can actually smoke out of. Part of the cardboard box that the pizza comes in makes the pipe itself, while the little pizza holder that’s normally found in the center of the pie makes the bowl. And while those little pizza toppers are usually plastic, Push For Pizza went the extra mile and made theirs out of a temperature resistant ceramic. The Pizza Box Pipe is totally legit and deserves the utmost stoner respect.

pizza-pipe

The co-founder of Push For Pizza, Cyrus Summerlin, has figured out the simplest (yet most ingenious way) to corner the stoner market. “It is common to crave food when one gets high,” he says. We are all quite familiar with the munchies. “It is also typical practice to order a quick pizza to satisfy this craving. We are aware of these trends and decided to combine these two interests in to an actual product.” Summerlin apparently knows that stoners can sometimes be strapped for cash and the Pizza Box Pipe materials come at no extra charge. So buy your pizza, get a pipe. And these brilliant things can be used more than once as long as you’re careful with the lighter.

Pizza-Box-Weed-Pipe-by-Push-For-Pizza_2-800x396

Even though the Pizza Box Pipe is only in the prototype stage, we can expect to see it begin to surface for the general public soon. So brace yourselves for one of the greatest stoner/food mashups ever. Let’s face it, there’s nothing better than having your pizza and smoking the box too.

Why Choose a Stoner Chick

Why Choose a Stoner Chick | Stoner Blog

Life is hard enough with the stress caused from bills, work and even kids, so lighting up at the end of a long stressful day can be your way of release. And as for finding a worthy mate thats a challenge in itself as well. Although this article is mainly speaking to men, we would like to take the time and say thank you to all our stoner women out there doing the most with life. So from everybody at StonerDays “Thank You!” Let’s get to it. Here are 10 reasons we choose stoner women over non smoking women.

01 Smoking during PMS. Chicks that smoke weed will defiantly be lighting up during their time of the month. Simply summed up by the health information outlet Medic8:

“Marijuana can cause irregular or missed periods. However, some women claim that it increases blood flow which reduces painful cramping.”

Anyway you look at it your stoned lady friend will feel so much better about herself and life if she is smoking that sweat Mary Jane while menstruating.

stoner-chicks-10


02 Easy to let go of the small things in life. At times life gets rough and stressing on the small things only makes it harder. Stoner chicks can let go of the small issues that arise in life by lighting up a bowl, kicking back and realizing that life is going to go on no matter what you do, but stressing about it will never help.

stoner-chicks-14


03 Sex will be awesome! Everybody enjoys getting it on. Well with a stoner chick your sex life will be more likely to improve. Not only does sex feel great while stoned but marijuana can actually help your partner achieve orgasms easier and more intense. A great combo for anyone.

stoner-chicks-17


04 Stoner Chicks are less likely to get physical. Fighting is to be expected in any healthy relationship. But according to The Daily Mail, the use of weed in any relationship is actually linked to lower rates of domestic violence:

“Findings suggest that marijuana use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards one’s partner.”

In other words, she will find it easier to forgive you.

05 She is more likely to be low maintenance. Not to say it’s a bad thing to pamper your stoner girl with a nice dinner and movie, but she will be more likely to understand and even suggest going somewhere chill, and not so fast pace. Allowing the both of you to really enjoy each others company.

stoner-chicks-9


06 Stoner chicks always have weed. We have all been there, no weed to smoke and it’s been a long stressful day. Well, having a stoner chick in your life will help that situation. She will not only have a rolled joint for you but a good dinner the both of you can get down on together.

stoner-chicks-19


07 She will be way easier to talk to. Which is great when your at your friends house trying to smoke and chill. She won’t drive you crazy hanging on your arm, but more likely to engage with your friends and start a conversation. Allowing you to just chill.

stoner-chicks-21


08 Stoner chicks are always up for pizza. You will never hear a stoner chick turn down a good pizza, which is awesome because how can anyone say no to pizza? Believe it or not their are those “non smoking chicks” that will say no to a pizza dinner. Crazy.

stoner-chicks-22


09 More then likely she will be generous. A good stoner chick will be more likely to buy and bring you home things you might need. So when she is out and about taking care of business you know she will be thinking of you. Just be sure to pay it back guys. Let her know she is also on your mind when your taking care of shit and buy her some flower.

stoner-chicks-8


10 Stoner chicks know how to enjoy a good laugh. Laughing is a great way to release stress and what better way then to get really baked and laugh at a good flick.

stoner-chicks-23

Of course not everyone will smoke weed in life and we get that all we’re suggesting is to make life easy and get yourself a stoner chick.

Legal State Teen Use And Cannabis

Legal State Teen Use And Cannabis | Stoner Guide

One of the heaviest arguments against cannabis legalization is that teenagers will be able to get their hands on the plant more easily than they have been able to in the past. Even though people may put a lot of faith in to this argument, you can’t argue with numbers. A Washington study done recently from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that minors, in fact, don’t feel that cannabis is any easier to obtain now than it was back in 2012 in Washington state. The survey polled tens of thousands of teens across a hundred schools each year and in 2010, 55% of teens said that it was “easy” to obtain marijuana. But in 2014 (two years after Washington legalized recreational marijuana), 54% of teens think it’s easy to get a hold of marijuana. While a 1% difference doesn’t seem like much, it’s still a decrease and not an increase, showing that cannabis is not more obtainable for young kids.

The list of the other things that have occurred in the legal states that go against the “cannabis is now easier to get a hold of for kids” theory is long. From 2012 (the year Colorado legalized cannabis) until now, the monthly teen cannabis use has fallen from 22% in 2011 to 20% in 2013. Additionally, the percentage of teens who had used cannabis at all had fallen from 45% to 39%, a considerable drop. In 2014, the Monitoring the Youth survey and the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use found that nationwide underage cannabis use had decreased slightly. The decrease occurred as the first wave of recreational laws went in to place. This decrease is chalked up to the nationwide conversations that were happening about cannabis, which promoted knowledge instead of scare tactics.

A national analysis of teen cannabis approval ratings also showed that between 2002 and 2013, teens approval of the cannabis plant didn’t increase and an NIH-funded study looked at data from 1991 to 2014 and concluded that the “passage of state medical marijuana laws does not increase adolescent use of marijuana”. Tack on the fact that a few months ago, a study released put to rest the myth that underage consumption had increased, and you have to admit that the youth of today seem much more educated when it comes to cannabis than past generations.

Colorado recently released the findings of a long running report that gives us the most detailed data on the mile high state’s recreational marijuana laws. The surveys were given out to about 40,000 Colorado students before and after cannabis legalization. The information collected showed that the students had “no significant change” in marijuana use by children under the age of 18. The number of high school students using cannabis also dropped from 23% in 2005 to 20% in 2014. But while these numbers seem promising, it was said that Colorado youth are much more likely to use cannabis than children in other states that haven’t legalized. About 13% of Colorado minors 12-17 has used cannabis in the 30 days prior to the survey, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health said. That’s 13% compared to 7% of minors the same age nationwide. So while nothing really changed, the numbers of teens able to get a hold of marijuana is higher than the national average.

The main key to keeping kids away from cannabis without the supervision of a doctor is educating them. Scare tactics won’t work, as children are always interested in what’s forbidden. Kids are very smart and it would benefit everyone if we just gave them the facts. Teaching the youth about marijuana when they’re young is the key to them using it responsibly when they’re older. By keeping them in the dark about it, they will only have to discover the plant for themselves and who knows what age that will be at. It is up to the parents to teach the kids about the wonderful plant and to make sure that kids aren’t getting a hold of it without the correct supervision.

How To Roll A Diamond Joint

how-roll-diamond-joint

How To Roll A Diamond Joint | Stonerdays

The diamond joint, one of my personal favorites, is one of the simplest, yet most elegant techniques to roll a trick joint. Although it looks like a complicated roll, with ample practice, this joint can easily be mastered.

Materials Needed:

  • Rolling Papers
  • Scissors
  • Lighter
  • Sticky strip from the rolling paper
  • Marijuana

Step 1:

Begin by rolling a fully-packed standard joint (preferably king size) with a crutch.

Step 2:

Roll two identical crutchless joints. Leave both ends untied with a few centimeters (one finger nail length) of open paper.

Step 3:

Take both crutchless joints and set them parallel to each other. Pick a side and place one sticky strip two finger nail lengths down on the joints and wrap the remaining sticky around the joints. Twist together the ends closest to the sticky strip. This will be the top of the Diamond Joint.

Step 4:

Place a thumb on the sticky strip. Gently form a gap between the joints and carefully bend the middle of each joint, away from one another, to resemble the shape of a diamond.

Step 5:

Flip the combined joints over to continue to the next step. This time, stick a second sticky strip one-finger nail length down the end of the two joints (leaving room to add the fully-packed standard joint).

Step 6:

Take a third sticky strip and place it directly above the previous sticky strip, leaving half a fingernail length left of the open paper. This purpose of this step is to seal off any potential gaps, without distorting the open paper’s shape. Again, carefully bend the middle of the two joints to adjust the diamond form.

Step 7:

On the same side, use a pair of scissors to cut out the section of open paper that merges at the base of the diamond, creating a larger hole where the fully-packed standard joint will be inserted. After clearing out the base of the diamond, insert the fully-packed standard joint while using a sticky strip to secure the junction of the joints.

Step 8:

Place another sticky strip one finger nail length below where the joints merge. Once in place, alternate looping the rest of the sticky strip through the center of the diamond then around the base. Repeat for the other side of the diamond (If the diamond joint is still not sturdy, or contains air holes, then simply repeat step 8 until fully secure).

Step 9: 

Finally, skim the flame of a lighter across the wet sticky strips to reinforce bond of the rolling papers; reshape the diamond form, and that’s how you roll a diamond joint.

Why Couples Should Smoke Together

Why Couples Should Smoke Together | Stoner Guide

We live in a society that definitely doesn’t hide violence. It’s pretty sad how much you see it on the news. Especially domestic violence, which seems to be more common every day. Couples that have the occasional fight aren’t that bad. In fact, studies have shown that arguing can be healthy. But a fight is different than bickering and it’s definitely not okay when things get violent. However, thanks to a study partially funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse, it has recently been discovered that couples who smoke cannabis together have more marital success as compared to non smoking couples.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-8

Smoking cannabis is a relaxing activity when shared with a significant other. We all know that relationships are work and our partners all do something that bothers us. After smoking, these small annoyances fade away and it is easier to communicate the way you feel about certain things getting done around the house or certain things in the relationship. By smoking together, you relax better as a couple and it is easier to laugh and to stop dwelling on the little things.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-7

Additionally, cannabis enhances feelings during sex, making the whole thing feel that much better. THC is known for containing euphoric properties that are heightened during intercourse. In this sort of intimate setting, the plant also allows you to relax and enjoy the moment that much more. It doesn’t impair the senses like alcohol but it will also let you loosen up a little bit.

Studies have shown that couples who smoke together have considerably lower levels of domestic abuse, contrary to the legal substance alcohol, which has been known to heighten violence.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-4

It allows people to be happier and to experience the relationship in a healthy way. Not only that but a study done in 2013 discovered that THC lowers the brain’s reaction to negative stimuli. So in serious debates, couples that smoke weed together are able to keep their cool longer and better than couples who don’t smoke, making their arguments more productive and less explosive.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-6

In short, it’s a good idea to smoke weed with the person you love. It will help you listen to each other, love each other more deeply, and understand one another better. It’s worth a try, am I right? Now roll up a joint and share it with that special someone!

Cannabis Talk On Mother’s Day

Cannabis Talk On Mother’s Day?

Stoners have a tough time with the parental discussion on marijuana reform. For some, the talk is extremely easy and some parents even raise their kids and actually teach their children about marijuana in the positive, truthful way. Other stoners don’t get so lucky and wind up getting taught the negative side of cannabis, which can prove extremely difficult when the child becomes a cannabis enthusiast. Even parents can shun their kids based on the simple opinion of a particular plant. It’s not fair and it’s definitely not right but it does happen. If you’re going to talk to your mom about cannabis reform, it’s recommended that you pick Mother’s Day to do so.

mothers-day-stonerdays

 

Some people are lucky enough to smoke with their mom and that’s awesome! But for others, it’s not so easy. Some stoners still hide the fact that they smoke from their parents, afraid of what their elders might say or do. On the other hand, you have stoners like myself, whose parents just can’t seem to bring themselves to get over the fact that it’s simply just a plant. The best way to talk to your mom about cannabis on Mother’s Day? Nicely. Simple enough! Keep the conversation upbeat and positive. If your mom starts to get frustrated, just kind of let her talk. It may be tough to hear what she has to say (parents tend to not know a whole lot about our good old Mary Jane and their arguments can sometimes be face-palm worthy, but it’s the only way she’s going to let you get a word in… And listen.

mothers-day-stonerdays-1

Moms are important. Without them, you wouldn’t be here. Sometimes, we disagree with them. But it’s so important that you talk to your mom (and your dad) about marijuana reform. The legalizing of cannabis will probably happen in our lifetime and it’s important to prepare them for the booming industry that’s slowly creeping across the country. And if you do plan on speaking with your mom about cannabis on Mother’s Day, it’s highly recommended from the Stonerdays team that you bring along some flowers… And not the kind stoners like either!

What Is Rosin | StonerDays

What Is Rosin?

If you haven’t heard of rosin yet, you might be living under a rock. This “new” way to make cannabis concentrates is making stoners‘ lives easier all over the world. With no solvent and a super easy process, rosin is something that even the most basic stoner can make with zero risk of blowing themselves up. All that’s needed is a hair straightener, parchment paper, and some nug. It’s so silly easy, it’s almost impossible to mess it up. By placing the nug in the parchment paper and folding it in half and applying heat and pressure by squeezing the nug in the straightener, the concentrated THC is pressed from the flower, providing you with a totally solventless, absolutely lovely final product.

ROSIN-2

But when you make this beautiful cannabis concentrate, you’re left with flattened little weed chips. What to do with those? Some people would let them go to waste and just throw them in the trash. There are others that save these chips and store them in a jar until they find something to do with them. Of course there are stoners that will smoke them. The chips don’t taste that bad; they are slightly harsher than bud so just be aware of that before you load them up in your bong. But if you don’t feel like smoking them, the best thing that I’ve found to do with your leftover rosin chips is bake them in to edibles.

ROSIN-CHIPS

 

Now I’m sure you’re asking if the chips have enough THC left in them to get you high. The answer is a firm yes. The chips, while considerably less potent than they were in nug form, are still quite usable in edibles. You need to use more than you would use if you were using bud but they still work… And they work well. The most amount of rosin chips that I’ve put in to a batch of coconut oil brownies was 22 grams of pressed buds. These treats were so strong that people could only eat half of them or risk sleeping for 16 straight hours.

So here’s a very simple recipe for my coconut oil canna-brownies using rosin chips!

Five Marijuana Myths

Five Marijuana Myths

Everyone these days is familiar with the tactics used by DARE and films like Reefer Madness. This ridiculous propaganda leads many to believe that cannabis is a killer plant, something that will make you stupid and slow. But in reality, that’s not true. So much new information has flooded the media regarding cannabis, making these awful arguments look even worse. With little factual backing and even less logic, these myths no longer scare anyone away from looking at marijuana with an open mind.

01 Marijuana Will Make You Lazy

marijuana-myths-1
I know that this myth is one that is pretty well engrained into our modern society, although it is very slowly starting to crack under the weight of all the new information we get on a daily basis. It has long been said that stoners lack motivation and left to their own devices will sit on a bean bag chair on the floor, unless harassed by their talking dog. However, with star athletes such as Michael Phelps (who has enough gold medals to smelt a sweet gold toilet), coming out as marijuana smokers, it is only a matter of time before this myth goes the way of the gumby fade.

02 Marijuana Will Get You Pregnant

marijuana-myths-2
This one is a bit confusing to me and takes a very closed mind to even work at all. Some people argue that smoking pot will lead to pregnancy (pause to ponder). It is more likely that if someone is high and having sex, they would forget to finish the job and prematurely make a sandwich. Considering weed is not made of sperm, and is not injected into the female anatomy with a turkey baster, I am at a loss and will leave you to make your own conclusions on this one. P.S. Alcohol seems like it should be the real target on this one. Attend a high school party and see my point.

03 Marijuana Will Make You Stupid

marijuana-myths-3
I will start this by saying my father was a daily weed smoker and was one of the smartest people I have ever met. This man could grab a joint and a puzzle and solve it in minutes while everyone else gave up half way though and smashed it on the floor in defeat. The idea that weed could actually make you less intelligent is one of the myths most under fire today. To suggest that a daily or even casual toker is less intelligent than a non smoker seems all the more damned when you read what the non smokers believe happens when you introduce the sticky into your life.

04 Marijuana Is As Dangerous As Heroin

marijuana-myths-4
I will leave the statistics out of this and just say that I live in a state that has a serious heroin problem at the moment. Every single day there are shootings and overdoses and the numbers are only going up. I have people with less teeth in their head than eyes asking me for change every time I walk into any store with a door. On the flip side of this coin are the stoners. Never in my life have I seen someone on the corner begging for weed and there’s a simple reason for this. Weed makes most jobs easier to deal with while the people on heroin are falling asleep in traffic. I will take the dude confused about which snacks to buy over the guy begging for “gas money” to get back to his “sick aunt” any day.

05 Marijuana Has No Medicinal Use

marijuana-myths-5
The myth here is particularly common and convenient with Big Pharma behind it and it is not hard to see why. There is a TON of money to be made with weed being illegal. Marijuana is easy to grow and comes out of the ground basically ready to go, so any company that say, makes millions by testing and selling harmful pills, will not like a medicine that anyone can grow in their own back yard. As someone that suffered from not only migraines but anorexia, I can tell you that marijuana pretty much saved my life. I watched my mother go through radiation treatment as well eat a pallet of pills that did everything from make her hair fall out to make her food taste like ash in her mouth, all while draining her entire bank account and will to live. Anyone that says that marijuana has no medical applications has never tried it, and therefore has no business entering the discussion.

How To Talk To Children About Cannabis

How To Talk To Children About Cannabis

Kids these days are the future of our generation, obviously, much like we were fifteen-twenty years ago. Unfortunately for us, the youth is more preoccupied with how many followers they have on Twitter rather than the real issues that are at stake. One of these such issues being the state of cannabis in society. As the self-proclaimed green generation, it is up to us to teach our children the truth about weed, instead of the scare tactics that most of us grew up with. Programs like DARE still exist and aim to deter children away from cannabis with “facts” that primarily comes from Reefer Madness.

teenagers-cannabis

For a lot of twenty one to thirty year olds, their parents spent most of their time talking about the negative effects of cannabis. Not once when I was growing up did either of my parents mention any benefits to ingesting marijuana. Instead, I was repeatedly told that the plant was harmful, whether the “information” came from my parents, teachers, or the cop that taught us DARE back in fifth grade. What is unfortunate is that none of these people once suggested that marijuana might benefit me. In reality, I could’ve used marijuana a lot earlier on in life, had people told me the truth about the plant.

teenagers-cannabis-1

When it comes to kids and cannabis, the bottom line is that the truth needs to be told. No scare tactics or telling them that they’ll be stupid if they choose to smoke. What needs to be done is very simple; let them make their own choice. Cannabis use by those under eighteen years old has shown decreased myelin formation in the brain. Myelin being the protective coating around the human brain that shields it from trauma. If this layer doesn’t form correctly, it can lead to issues later in life. But with the supervision of doctors and other professionals or after a child turns eighteen, it should be up to them on whether or not they want to try smoking marijuana. It is with this idea that the child should grow up with as well, rather than having parents who constantly tell the child that marijuana is a terrible plague upon the human race.

teenagers-cannabis-2

There’s no point in hiding marijuana from kids; chances are they will get a hold of it at some point before they turn eighteen. It’s up to the parents to inform their children with knowledge that will help them to make their own choices once they’re presented with cannabis.

Five Reasons Patrick Star Is The Smoking Man’s Smoking Man

Five Reasons Patrick Star Is The Smoking Man’s, Smoking Man..

Cartoons like Spongebob were once pitched to adult TV show networks… And rejected. So when the writers changed the script for the younger minds, they failed to take out a few of the more adult references. Watching Spongebob as an adult will show you how many of these references we miss as a child and now understand. Patrick Star is a great example of an adult reference in Bikini Bottom… His attitude, demeanor, and overall existence shout “STONER” and here are five reasons why we think Patrick Star is more than fond of (sea)weed.

01 Wake and Bake Under the Sea 

SPONGEBOB SMOKING WEED

We have all woken up early in the morning to wake and bake and decided to snack, but Patrick Star takes it to a whole new level. The ever forgetful Patrick actually sets an alarm and has a Crabby Patty in a drawer next to his bed to ease the munchies in a way that most of us could only dream. Patrick seems as though he is just a piece of brain coral away from being a marijuana Mcguyver.

02 Patrick’s Family

patricks-family

There are times when someone from your past will walk up and you will have no idea who they are and Patrick is no different. However, while some of us might forget a childhood acquaintance or class mate, the pink star spends an entire episode with two star fish that he believes to be his parents. We find out at the end of their visit that they are in fact, total strangers. Patricks real parents were standing in front of Squidward’s pad confused but happy. It’s worth noting that the two star fish that did visit Pat also thought they were his parents (even though they admit to never having children).

03 Life Under a Rock

patrick-star-house-1
I don’t know about you, but there are days when I want to be out and about and days I want to just chill. Patrick is often found doing the latter, barely moving under his rock home. It is often shown that Pat does very little while waiting for his always over the top happy friend Spongebob not so “square” pants (wink,wink). The relationship reminds me of Seth Rogan and James Franco in Pineapple Express. One working and the other just making it work.

04 Highdeas

patrick-star-stoner-ideas
Everyone in Bikini Bottom seems to live in a house with furniture and drive a car, except Patrick. However, Spongebob can’t seem to pass his drivers test no matter how many times he tries. We see Pat’s abode change shape many times, sometimes it’s a rock with his legs hanging out. Other times, it’s changed to include sand furniture and even a bed. Seems to me that our pink friend is getting lifted and creative with his surroundings. I know I have done it many times.

05 Forgetting He Already Ate

giphy
A favorite episode of mine is when Pat and Bob steal a balloon on free balloon day and go on the lamb. While trying to decide what they will do with their lives, SpongeBob divvies up two candy bars, one for himself and one for Patrick. Before SpongeBob can even open his candy, Patrick has inhaled his and immediately forgotten about it. Pat goes on to suggest that SpongeBob stole his and ate it while he wasn’t looking. S-Bizzle as he is called in some circles, tries to then share his with Pat but that just won’t do. Patrick is having a serious case of the munchies that no single candy bar will get rid of. Looked like a good candy bar too.

Pot Use and Pregnancy

Pot Use and Pregnancy

By Paul Armentano

[Author’s note: This essay originally appeared in article form in the June 2007 issue of Heads Magazine. It has been updated for publication by NORML.]

Few issues concerning cannabis and health evoke more disparate opinions than the question of maternal pot use during pregnancy. It’s easy to see why. Logic presumes that if pre-natal exposure to intoxicants such as alcohol and tobacco poses proven health risks to the fetus, then exposure to pot would likely pose similar risks to a child’s health and development. Nevertheless, much of the science surrounding this issue says otherwise – though a definitive answer remains elusive.

Reasons for this are two-fold. One, it is virtually impossible for investigators to obtain permission to conduct any type of prospective clinical trial that knowingly exposes pregnant mothers – and their future offspring – to cannabis. Two, because women often face severe legal sanctions (such as the loss of child custody or incarceration) for admitting that they have smoked pot while pregnant, most mothers refuse to divulge such information – even to researchers conducting anonymous surveys years after the fact. Moreover, among the handful of surveys that have been conducted, several fail to adequately control for mothers’ use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs during the course of their pregnancy.

As a result, much of the published data assessing the extent of maternal pot use and its health implications remains limited to historical texts, studies from non-Western cultures (where the use of cannabis has gained greater social acceptability), and retrospective survey data.

POT FOR MORNING SICKNESS?

Morning Sickness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Historic references regarding the use of therapeutic cannabis for a variety of female medical conditions, including difficult childbirth, date back to the 7th century BC. According to “Cannabis Treatments in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Historical Review” by Dr. Ethan Russo, various parts of the plant – including cannabis flowers and seeds – were used by Chinese and Persian societies to induce contractions, prevent miscarriages, and reduce incidences of post-partum hemorrhage. By the mid-19th century, the use of cannabis tinctures became prevalent in Western cultures to hasten pregnancy and reduce pre-partum nausea. The historical use of cannabis use for pregnancy-associated pain and other complications is also referenced in African, Indian, and Southeast Asian cultures.

More recent documentation of the therapeutic use of cannabis by mothers-to-be is less prevalent – no doubt because of pot’s outlaw status in most parts of the world. Nevertheless, some notable references stand out in the modern literature. Writing in the journal Pediatrics in 1994, Dr. Melanie Dreher and colleagues reported that the use of cannabis to treat nausea and increase appetite during pregnancy remains customary among women in southeast Jamaica. Though Dreher acknowledges that such use is discouraged at government-sponsored pre-natal clinics, she found that many women nonetheless consider ganja to hold therapeutic benefits to themselves and their unborn children.

More recently, Dr. Wei-Ni Lin Curry published a first-person account documenting her own use of therapeutic cannabis to alleviate symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by severe nausea and vomiting, malnutrition, and weight loss during pregnancy. (While general nausea and vomiting, colloquially known as ‘morning sickness,’ is experienced by an estimate 70 to 80 percent of all expectant mothers, approximately 1 to 2 percent are struck with the persistent vomiting and wasting associated with HG.) Curry recounts:

“Within two weeks of my daughter’s conception, I became desperately nauseated and vomited throughout the day and night. … I vomited bile of every shade, and soon began retching up blood. … I felt so helpless and distraught that I went to the abortion clinic twice, but both times I left without going through the with procedure. … Finally I decide to try medical cannabis. … Just one to two little puffs at night, and if I needed in the morning, resulted in an entire day of wellness. I went from not eating, not drinking, not functioning, and continually vomiting and bleeding from two orifices to being completely cured. … Not only did the cannabis save my [life] during the duration of my hyperemesis, it saved the life of the child within my womb.”

Most recently, survey data collected by the directors of the Vancouver Island Compassion Society (The VICS) and the BC Compassion Club and published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice reported that cannabis is therapeutic in the treatment of both morning sickness and HG. Of the 84 women who responded to the anonymous questionnaire, 36 said that they had used cannabis intermittently during their pregnancy to treat symptoms of vomiting, nausea, and appetite loss. Of these, 92 percent said that cannabis was “extremely effective” or “effective” in combating their symptoms. Investigators noted that although most women chose to self-administer cannabis by smoking, many (31 percent) also reported consuming hempen edibles, and eight percent reported using cannabis-based oils or tinctures.

PRE-NATAL POT EXPOSURE AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT

 

Though several retrospective, self-report surveys have been conducted regarding pre-natal exposure to cannabis, not all of these properly control for the use of alcohol or other substances. Among those that do, most report cannabis’ apparent impact on birth-weight and other adverse perinatal outcomes to be minimal. (Though adverse reproductive outcomes have been reported in rodents given synthetic THC, these results are typically only reported after the administration of extremely large doses of the drug at specific times during pregnancy. Therefore, these results likely have little relevance to humans.)

Writing in their 1997 book Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts: A Review of the Scientific Evidence (The Lindesmith Center), Drs. John P. Morgan and Lynn Zimmer assert, “Marijuana has no reliable impact on birth size, length of gestation … or the occurrence of physical abnormalities” among infants. Large-scale surveys appear to back up their conclusion.

A 2002 survey of 12,060 British women did not demonstrate significant differences in growth among newborns exposed to cannabis in utero versus those with no exposure, when controlling for co-founding factors such as the mothers’ age, pre-pregnancy weight, and the self-reported use of tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, and other illicit drugs. A 1999 survey of 12,885 Dutch mothers reported similar findings after controlling for maternal tobacco use. “The use of cannabis is not a major prognostic factor regarding the outcome of pregnancy,” the authors concluded. A 1997 Australian study of 32,483 mothers also reported, “There is inadequate evidence that cannabis, at the amount typically consumed by pregnant women, causes low birth weight.” Most recently, a large-scale case-control study published in the journal Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology determined that mothers who reported using cannabis during pregnancy suffered no increased risk of bearing children with acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer known to strike adolescents under age 15.

Arguably the study most often cited on the subject remains Dr. Dreher’s work from Jamaica, which examined the birth weights and early development of babies exposed to cannabis compared to non-exposed infants. (Mothers in the study reported that they occasionally mixed cannabis with tea as an alternative to smoking.) Her study reported no significant physical or psychological differences in newborns of heavy marijuana-using mothers at three days old, and found that exposed children performed better on a variety of physiological and autonomic tests than non-exposed children at 30 days. (This latter trend was suggested to have been a result of the socio-economic status of the mothers rather than a result of pre-natal pot exposure.)

By contrast, longitudinal data assessing the potential impact of pre-natal cannabis exposure on neurobehavioral and cognitive functioning is ambivalent. Two cohorts have examined this issue, both of which assessed the impact of heavy marijuana exposure on offspring outcome. Both studies remain ongoing.

The first cohort, known as the Maternal Health Practices and Child Development Study, examines the offspring of so-called “high-risk” mothers of low socio-economic status who reported using pot, alcohol, and other intoxicants. Investigators report an association between daily cannabis use in the first and third trimesters and adverse neurobehavioral and cognitive outcomes, such as lower verbal and reading scores and increased depression. However, due to the study’s methodological limitations, researchers cannot conclude whether these outcomes are due to cannabis exposure or other pre-natal or post-natal environmental factors.

The second cohort, known as the Ottawa Prenatal Prospective Study (OPPS) examines the outcomes of prenatal exposure to cannabis and tobacco smoking in a sample of low-risk, white, upper-class families in Ontario, Canada. So far, results of the study have been mixed – showing an association between maternal pot use and higher incidences of adolescent impulsivity, overall poor behavior, and decreased “executive function” (an integration of cognitive processes) at certain ages, but not at others. (By contrast, investigators have not noted any negative association between pre-natal pot exposure and IQ scores.) Recently, a comprehensive review of both studies published in the journal Neuroscience and Behavioral in 2005 concluded that if an association between pre-natal cannabis exposure and certain neurobehavioral and cognitive deficits exists, it is a “subtle” one and appears to be primarily associated with children exposed to heavy amounts of cannabis as well as alcohol and/or tobacco.

More recently, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine published findings in 2008 from a prospective study assessing the effects of prenatal marijuana exposure in 648 children in a low-income population at a six-year follow up. Researchers reported: “There was a significant nonlinear relationship between marijuana exposure and child intelligence. Heavy marijuana use (one or more cigarettes per day) during the first trimester was associated with lower verbal reasoning. … Heavy use during the second trimester predicted deficits in the composite, short-term memory, and quantitative scores. Third-trimester heavy use was negatively associated with the quantitatives core. … These findings are of concern, but they do not by themselves demonstrate causality.” Most recently in 2009 investigators at the University of Bristol in Great Britain assessed whether maternal use of tobacco, alcohol, or cannabis during pregnancy increased the risk of psychotic symptoms in their offspring. Researchers examined the drug use habits of the mothers of over 6,300 adolescents – approximately 12 percent of which exhibited some symptoms of psychosis.

Authors concluded: ʺFrequency of maternal tobacco use during pregnancy was associated with increased risk of suspect or definite psychotic symptoms (in offspring.) Maternal alcohol use shows a non-linear association with psychotic symptoms, with this effect almost exclusively in the offspring of women drinking >21 units (approximately a half-pint of beer or a glass of wine) weekly. Maternal cannabis was not associated with psychotic symptoms.ʺ

THE OCCASIONAL TOKE: SAFE FOR MOMS OR NOT?

Unfortunately, there is not a definitive answer to this question available at this time. Nevertheless, with a reported three percent of US women of reproductive age reporting that they occasionally use marijuana, it may be arguable that potential pre-natal and post-natal dangers posed by maternal pot use – particularly moderate use – are rather minimal, especially when compared to the in utero exposure of alcohol and tobacco. Ultimately however, any decision by the parent regarding the maternal use of cannabis should be made in consultation with a physician. In addition, any decision to potentially use cannabis carries with it serious potential legal ramifications, including temporary loss of child custody.

Finally, it should be noted that scientists today are just now beginning to understand the role of endocannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system in reproduction, including their role in pre-natal and post-natal development. Whether the future understanding of this system will shed additional light on the health implications of maternal pot smoking remains to be seen. Regardless, let’s hope that it is science — not rhetoric — that ultimately is the final arbiter in this decades-long debate.

Why Hotels Are Getting Rid Of 420

Why Hotels Are Getting Rid Of 420

You check in at the front desk at your hotel and you’re given room 420. To any stoner it feels like you have hit the lottery! You and your friends giggle to each other, knowing it’s going to be one hell of a weekend because the hotel gave you the stoniest room in the building. First thing any stoner does when getting to your room is drop your bags and fire up that sweet kush.

This is all going to change because hotels have been getting the room 420 signs stolen across the country. Stoners just can’t resist having that 420 sign as their own souvenir from their awesome ganja getaway.

Some hotels have been changing room 420 to room 419+1 to detour people from stealing the signs.

stonerdays-hotel-room-420

Just like floor 13 in most hotels, their even getting rid of room 420 altogether. As security guards walk the halls on the fourth floor they can’t help but smell the stinky kush billowing out of room 420 as we hot-box the shit out of it. Some hotels in Denver Colorado have even gone as far as to stencil out the numbers four twenty to avoid replacing it all together.

Other hotels even remove room 420. As you can see in the picture below, this hotel has a clever way of hiding the fact that the room doesn’t even exist.

room-420-stonerdays

We all know this will not stop any of us from smoking when entering our room’s, but this will definitely take a lot of the joy out of getting that one room you couldn’t wait to tell your friends about.

Fox News Releases Poll That Supports Marijuana Legalization

Fox News Releases Poll That Supports Marijuana Legalization

Before you call me crazy, yes I am talking about the Fox News that we’re all familiar with. The one that refused to show support for marijuana… Up until now. With the public pressing for more marijuana information, the media giant Fox had no choice but to release something that they’re not too fond of; FACTS. But even Fox can’t argue with what the people are saying. And the people are saying that they want to see marijuana legalized.

In a poll that was recently done by Fox News, 51% of Americans want to see marijuana legalized like in Colorado, Washington, Alaska, etc. Since the internet provides such a great outlet to find information, people are beginning to see that marijuana is more than just some gateway drug that makes teens deflate like sad balloons.

Since 2001, the number of people that oppose marijuana legalization has dropped drastically. At the same time, the amount of people who support marijuana legalization has risen at the same rate. Back in 2001, only 26% of people supported legalization and even though the 51% is only a 1% jump from last year, the number is still climbing. Other polls have different results, however, as is to be expected of surveys like this. A similar poll done by CBS News found that there were 53% of Americans that supported marijuana legalization. In March, the General Social Survey released the information that 52% of Americans supported cannabis legalization. Numerous other polls had different results but the numbers usually rested around 51-54%.

Support of marijuana legalization should continue to grow over the next few years, even though some polls show that the numbers dropped over the last year. This is probably due mostly to scare tactics and the media focusing on the mostly negative news about marijuana. Although, as said above, the ability to connect to the internet gives people the ability to fact check for themselves. When they learn something new about marijuana, they can double check the information in a split second. With the help of the internet and the people who are working hard to get marijuana accepted, we can hope that the plant will be legalized soon.

Cannabis In The NFL

Cannabis In The NFL

Major league sports aren’t exempt from drug use. But most players involved in heavy contact sports such as football usually aren’t using marijuana. Instead, it is found that a lot of these players have issues with painkillers and prescribed drugs. Since they are always getting hit so hard, players need something to take that terrible edge off. After broken bones and concussions, the doctors really can’t give the players any other option. The players are taking matters in to their own hands in order to avoid the inevitable road to addiction that most of them end up suffering from. The players are turning to cannabis.

Even though the NFL drug tests the players and still considers marijuana to be illegal, more and more players are testing positive for the plant. Players that haven’t even gotten drafted yet are testing positive for cannabis and the NFL is at a loss. By preventing the players from using cannabis, they are hurting themselves by keeping talented athletes off of the field. In the 2015 draft, one player tested positive for cannabis in a drug test and another from a different state was charged with possession of marijuana. After these two incidents, an NFL general manager stated that there is probably a good 30% of players using marijuana even though they’re not supposed to.

STONERDAYS-NFL-CANNABIS

The NFL tests their players once a year, around April 20th go figure. So the players have a time frame in place to try and beat the drug test system. They have virtually all year to smoke and do whatever other substances they feel like ingesting. But marijuana is something that the players are using to cope with the stress of the career that they’ve chosen. Rather than take Percocet or Oxycontin, the players are beginning to take the medical effects of marijuana seriously.

Marijuana is questionable when it comes to sports. Some people believe that those players that smoke weed actually have an advantage over others. While simultaneously, there are others who claim that it’s a hinderance on performance. Whether it not it helps or halts the talent of a player, there’s no reason there should be such a hefty penalty for these players using cannabis. Even though it’s just a few games suspension, these players legitimately put their health on the line to amuse us. If they want to smoke, let them.

Cannabis Compared To Epilepsy Drugs

Cannabis Compared To Epilepsy Drugs

As the cannabis plant becomes more researched for its properties relating to epilepsy, more parents of epileptic children are opening their minds to the possibility of what this plant can do for their families. There are hundreds of children that are suffering from epilepsy and the complications that arise from it. If you’ve never seen a small child have a Grand Mal seizure, look it up on YouTube and try not to tear up. These parents deal with this every single day, watching their child shake and suffer while they stand by and do nothing.

It’s not like these parents aren’t trying to help. Many of these parents have done everything that they can in order to help their children. But modern medicine still hasn’t caught up to how terrifying the affliction of epilepsy is. Even though the doctors are telling people that these drugs will help their child, chances are it isn’t going to help. Instead of being strung along indefinitely and watching their kids suffer, there have been many parents that turned to medical marijuana as an answer to their child’s problem.

Marijuana has been shown to have a positive effect on epilepsy. The CBD in the plant calms the body and mind. Within the first few days of a child on CBD treatment, most parents report that the seizures almost or completely stop. Some children are even able to begin speaking, eating solid food, and walking. Take for example, young Jayden Davis, a child who is suffering from severe epilepsy. The young boy was having 1,200 seizures a month and with the use of CBD in liquid form, he is now down to about three. Accompany that with the fact that the doctors Jason Davis took his son to said that the boy had no chance of learning to walk or talk. Contrary to what they said, Jayden is functioning just fine and has begun walking and is now learning to talk.

When Jayden was just 16 months old, the doctors prescribed him benzos, an anti-convulsion drug that is described by Wikipedia in the following blurb;

“The benzodiazepines are a class of drugs with hypnotic, anxiolytic, anticonvulsive, amnestic and muscle relaxant properties. Benzodiazepines act as a central nervous system depressant. The relative strength of each of these properties in any given benzodiazepine varies greatly and influences the indications for which it is prescribed. Long-term use can be problematic due to the development of tolerance to the anticonvulsant effects and dependency.”

Now in all honesty, would you give a child a drug with a description like that? I wouldn’t. Jayden was addicted to benzos since he was just 16 months old. With the help of CBD, he no longer needs benzos or any other substance that “normal” doctors will prescribe. Jayden is a growing, developing child thanks to the help of cannabis.

Whats Your Smoking Style?

Sometimes the mind might wonder, is there really a reason for everything? Every action and reaction?

Think about this in terms of your Mary Jane actions. Why do you hit the blunt the way you do, or hold a bong in that certain way you like, or why do you only roll Little John’s when you’re smoking papers? THC Thursday Whats Your Smoking Style?

Are these random ticks, or maybe tricks of the trade.

What’s Your Smoking Style is ready to investigate a few of these habits to see what’s really poppin’.

How you hold your blunt/joint is important because it controls your smoke flow and sets you up for the inhale. Do you pinch or “square hold it?” Pinching looks like putting your index finger and thumb together with the piece in the middle.

This way gives easy control as not to burn your lips or be a butterfingers and go droppin’ smoke all around town.

Square holding is more a mirror of the way you would smoke a “square” or cigarette. Even though this way may not be as common, there are some who like to puff this way. Which one you go for doesn’t really matter as long as you’re smoking.

The flame you choose is just as important as what toilet paper you use.

Delicate decisions require delicate thought, so don’t burn your ganja with just any ol’ kerosene lamp.

There are matches, lighters, vapes, hemp wicks, so many things to get the herb heated to appropriate temperatures.

Hemp wicks are said to burn slower and eliminate harmful chemicals getting into your smoke, lighters are fast, matches are vintage and cool, and vaporizers are life savers.

Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg | Stonerdays

Long Beach, California couldn’t have wished for a better marijuana spokesperson than Snoop Dogg.

The LBC isn’t the only place Snoop gets lots of love, he’s given the up-most respect everywhere he travels.

This is because of his overly addictive, feel good, laid back gangsta jams.

The fact that he burns down the tree like a forest fire has done wonders for him in his musical career. Snoop Dogg deserves every bit of recognition he gets or being such a fantastical stoner and lyrical genius.

For years he’s managed to give us quality get high and ride out music to be cloaked in a cloud of smoke to, thanks Dogg.

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. better known as Snoop D-O Double G was born October 20,1971 and boy are we glad. Things began to take a successful twist for Snoop in 1992 when a hip hop producer guru by the name of

Dr. Dre discovered Dogg’s untapped talent and decided to help him take his talents to infinity and beyond.

It’s true that his image has changed continuously over the years and is still evolving, still Snoop has never failed to keep in touch with his fans. He has been the star of his own reality T.V. show and many philanthropic endeavors. All the while supplying our high minds with good music.

Snoop’s first album entitled, “Doggystyle”  went 4x Platinum so winning is nothing new to this man.

He’s a champion through and through that knows how to stay true to himself, no matter what prosecution he may face or slashes from internet trolls and media.

In 2013 Snoop is so much more than an inspirational stoner but an icon, an icon that also happens to love smoking ganja and enjoying life, sucking all the sweet juices out of it in fact.Now it’s time to throw on some Snoop Dogg and light the Indo because really, there is nothing else that you should be doing.

Tokin Tuesday Weed Talk

Tokin Tuesday Weed Talk

In our society we love to be entertained, we love things to talk about that connects us with others like sports, politics, music, or art.

Within all of these categories there is a language that can only be decoded if you are knowledgeable in that subject. Marijuana is exactly the same way, and some people feel it’s actually more entertaining to talk about than all those other subjects combined.

This Tokin Tuesday Weed Talk edition is all about our lingo and what it means to us as a people.

For more beyond awesome lingo check out the Stoner Dictionary!

Code words for MJ have been being used fo centuries as a way to stay under the radar but still remain high at all times.

It also adds flare to the already awesome and laid back personalities that stones have.

They have so many meanings and can be used in some pretty diverse situations, for example:

Dealer Talk

You might want a quarter, dime, nick, half, eighth, watevs. Chances are you’ll say one of these things and no need to elaborate because of course he or she will know what you mean.

Friend Talk

“Aye Bro, let’s blow some trees after work and roll up that fire! Scored a blunt and a few bowls worth too, shit’s gonna be dope!”

Authority Talk

“I think 4:20 pm would be a great time to take a walk and admire the greenery”. “Yes honey, the trees are in bloom and the flowers are so high”.

These are a few ways that you can incorporate cannabis conversation into your everyday life.

You may not even notice that you’ve been having a 45 minute conversation with your sister about marijuana because you never actually said the word “marijuana”.

How sweet is that?! Thanks for reading stoners! Flip through the StonerDays Stoner Dictionary for more smokin’ slang.

Best Places to Get Stoned

Best Places to Get Stoned

So it’s officially 4:20 and you’re ready to burn it down!

Everything you could have ever wanted is just a puff away, and the anticipation building up inside of you is thicker than smoke.

What scenery shall have the privilege to bask in the presence of you and MJ, such a beautiful couple. 

This StonerDays feature is all about the best places to get stoned. Lighting up is ritual and should be thought about to some degree to make sure you get the most out of your session.

The Bathroom

Yes people, the restroom is the perfect place for a toke. It’s a bit secluded and most have at least one window if you need to air out, or just small enough for a killer hot box.

There’s also multiple places you can ash in the powder room like the sink and the toilet.

Don’t forget to wash your hands!

The Car

The original hot box is always in the top places to toke up. You get to enjoy the passing or still scenery from high eyes, and you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

Throw on the radio and freak out to your favorite artists while you’re at it.

Roll up all of the windows, lock the doors, and proceed to get trippy mane.

Outside

Marijuana is as natural a thing as birds flying in the sky.

Smoking a doobie in the wide open fresh air gives you a connection with the bud like no other.

Smoking earth while enjoying earth is something that every cannabis lover should treat themselves to.

Night-time smokes are the best as you star gaze into the darkness blunted up and carefree, searching for UFO’S

or shooting stars because you’re feelin’ it and know they’re out there staring back at you. Just as amazed as you are to be alive in such a wonderful time in history…..see what we mean, trippy.

These are just a few places where cannabis sativa can be intensely enjoyed. Of course you realize that 24/7, 365 anywhere, anyplace is the perfect time to burn the bowl….

except maybe in front of a police station, don’t do that. Stay Fly Stoners!

The beautiful Stoner Girls of this world play a huge role in the evolution of the future, and these Stoner Girls have a brand new outlook for life, a view of the universe that to them can only be seen though the smoke of the ganja.

stoner-girls-stonerdays (4)

Back in the day there seemed to be the perception that smoking, and smoking weed was just an all male sport. Classic movies from the yesteryear and other forms of media portrayed the “proper woman” as a stuffy, fluffy dress wearing, great cook that only prepared the tobacco for her husband and dared not to take a puff for herself. Well guess what everyone, times have changed and

we’ve also found something way more beneficial to our lives than a bit of snuff in a can.

stoner-girls-stonerdays (1)

This is Mary Jane, a girl that every pot head chic looks to for guidance and peace of mind.

It’s true that the Stoner Girls can smoke it down just as hard as the fellas and sometimes even harder.

With all the different lanes there are in the marijuana alley Stoner Girls from every crevice of the world have been able to find the right niche for them and it seems to be working out perfectly.

stoner-girls-stonerdays (5)

Not only do they inhale it but there are countless female growers an scientists that devote their delicious pink time an energy to various beautiful shades of green an sparkling trichomes.

 

Being able to sit in the presence of a lady while she’s getting high is one of those experiences that is captivating and stunning.

The allure of a beautiful soul consuming buckets an buckets of smoke is sexy and seductive, it does something to the psyche that touches a place deep inside you.

stoner-girls-stonerdays (2)

Being able to watch her unwind slowly, and you see it all from the beginning witnessing the relaxation of her shoulders and neck as she exhales an then inhales deep again and again, only not for you… this is for her,

Stonerdays Radio For Stoners By Stoners

It’s common knowledge that stoners love music more than anyone else.

 StonerDays Stoner Radio Smoke Weed Every Day

It relaxes, chills, and lightens the mood of any smoking sesh. Unfortunately, most of the stuff on the radio and on MTV is absolute garbage (We’ve all seen Miley’s chicken butt by this point… Ugh!). So if you’re smoking and you want to hear some stoner tunes, what do you do? Most people start using Slacker and looking up their favorite videos on YouTube.

How To Make Cannabis Popsicles Presented By StonerDays

What better stoner treat to make in the summer for when the heat really hits? Popsicles are always a hit, it doesn’t matter what age you and your friends are or what time of year it is for that matter. If you whip these babies out at a backyard gathering in the summer, you’re sure to be a huge hit. Plus, since they’re medicated, people will be able to enjoy your party that much more. And if you don’t feel like sharing, you don’t have to and you can eat this tray of six popsicles all to yourself.

Step 1. Take a Bong Load

cannabis popsicle stoner days marijuana

What You’ll Need (makes six);

  • Popsicle molds
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • Blender
  • 1/8 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup cannabis almond milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup cannabis honey
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • Six popsicle sticks

How To Make Cannabis Popsicles Presented By Stoner Days

Start off by pureeing the raspberries along with 1/8 a cup of the water and the lemon juice. About halfway through the puree, add in 1/8 cup of the cannabis honey. Blend everything together until it is smooth. Pour the raspberry mixture through the sieve in to a clean bowl. You can discard the seeds (or eat them… I chose to eat them). Fill each of the popsicle molds about 1/3 of the way full with the raspberry mix. Freeze them for an hour.

While you wait, mix together the cannabis almond milk, sugar, and the yogurt. Stir together well in a clean bowl. Once the raspberry mix is frozen and the yogurt mix is smooth, remove the raspberry pieces from the freezer and fill them with another 1/3 of the yogurt mix. Place them back in the freezer for another hour.

When about an hour has passed, you can puree the blueberries, along with the lime juice and 1/8 of a cup of water. Once the mixture is about halfway done pureeing, you can add in the rest of the cannabis honey just like you did with the raspberry mix. Continue to blend everything together until it is smooth. Pour the mix through the clean sieve in to a clean bowl. Again, you can choose to eat or discard the seeds. Take the molds out of the freeze for the last time and (before pouring the blueberry mix in), put a popsicle stick in each mold. Then, fill them until they are less than 1/2 an inch from the top. Stick them back in the freezer for a solid two hours. Once they’ve completely frozen, remove them and quickly run them under warm water to loosen the sides. Serve to yourself or your friends. Enjoy your lovely medicated, homemade popsicles!

Top 10 most popular Autoflowering Marijuana Strains 2015

Top 10 most popular Autoflowering Marijuana Strains 2015

As the name suggests, autoflowering cannabis plants automatically produce blooms without the need to regulate light levels to trigger bud production. This feature alone makes them ideal for a wide variety of growing environments.

On top of this, they also possess a rapid growth rate that makes them adaptable to cooler climates and provides early crop harvesting. In fact, this type of cannabis will often complete its cycle in slightly over three months at the most. Also, since they’re not dependent on fluctuating light levels, they can handle outdoor urban and suburban settings. Not all autoflowering strains of cannabis are created equal, though, so here’s some examples of the best in this category.

Northern Light Automatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Northern Light Automatic
A favorite for medical marijuana, Northern Light is a mix of primarily indica cannabis with some sativa added. As such, the strain is particularly abundant in cannabidiol or CBD. This is the drug usually responsible for producing the couch-locked or relaxed effect associated with many types of marijuana. Northern Light is great for pain relief and insomnia but also for anxiety or just as a way to relieve the tension from a rough day at work. While being a bit tall for an indica-derived variety, it generates a plethora of sweet-tasting buds in only two-and-a-half months.

Northern Light is one of the best-known strains of cannabis in the world. It’s a mostly Indica strain bred in the 1970s in the USA from Afghani genetics. In the 1980s, the plant came to Holland. It soon become the standard for indoor growing. Over the last few years, there have been many changes in growing and breeding techniques. Our Northern Light Automatic is a perfect mix of new and old.

Now this strain is both autoflowering and feminized. Northern Light Automatic is great for growing indoors but can also been grown outdoors in most climates. The plant starts growing and producing flowers almost immediately, and is ready for harvest in only 9 to 10 weeks from planting the seeds.

Northern Light Automatic gives a generous harvest and might be one of the highest-yielding autoflowering strains available. Growing to a height of around 90-120 cm, it is quite a large plant for an autoflowering variety, but this is matched in its yield. Outdoors in Spain some plants have produced upto 200 g, though around 90 g is the average in good conditions indoors.

Much like the original Northern Lights, our Northern Lights Automatic has a nice, sweet taste and a comfortable physical effect. It’s the same classic strain, just with an autoflowering twist. Which also makes it a great plant for medical users.

Amnesia Haze Automatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Amnesia Haze Automatic
Spice things up with Amnesia Haze. This strain is descended almost entirely from the sativa family. Sativa marijuana is strong in tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the drug in marijuana that produces the classic euphoric high. While not as favored for medicinal uses, THC-rich sativa cannabis strains can be used to relieve depression and stimulate appetite. Many people with attention-deficit disorder also claim THC helps them focus their attention. With its sativa ancestry, Amnesia Haze is quite large, reaching up to one-and-a-half meters or five feet. With this size, though, this strain rewards you with anywhere from 40 to 150 grams of spicy-sweet buds in just under three months.

The Amnesia Haze Automatic is the result of many years breeding. A cross of the Amnesia Haze, bred in The Netherlands in the 1990’s by Hy-Pro Seeds. The original Amnesia, aka Amnesia Haze, Champagne Haze, The Bomb, Ultra Haze and many others names is classic Sativa strain, popular everywhere.

The biggest downside of Sativa strains like Amnesia is that it can take a while to flower, 12 weeks on average, but some phenotypes can take up 20 weeks. This is simply too long for many growers. She can also grow quite tall; this can be another issue for some growers with limited space.

The Amnesia Haze Autoflomatic aims to solve these problems. Offering the same euphoric high and spicy, sweet taste as the original Amnesia but with a heavily reduced growth time and a much smaller height. This means she can be grown by many growers who before would not be able to grow her.

Indoors she will take around 80 days from seed to bud. In this time she can grow quite large, especially when compared to other autoflowering strains. This is a clear sign of her Sativa dominant genetics – tall plants, large thin leaves and long stretching buds. The Amnesia Haze Automatic is a vigorous plant that can grow to heights of around 80-150cm. This large Sativa dominant autoflowering strains, much like the original Amnesia, gives generous yields of high quality hazey buds. She likes to be fed well, but be careful not to over feed her, as like as Hazes she can be sensitive to nutrients.

After 80 days of growth and flowering you will be left with a good yield, around 40 grams on average and up to 150 grams in ideal conditions. She gives long, fox tail like buds with a sweet, spicy, musky aroma. All in all she has the classic Amnesia aroma, flavour and effect. The Amnesia Haze Automatic is the perfect autoflowering variety for lovers of the Haze.
Royal Dwarf Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Royal Dwarf
Royal Dwarf provides the best cannabis seeds for anyone with limited space. These plants rarely exceed 60 cm or just under two feet. Don’t let this small stature fool you. Royal Dwarf can potentially churn out 60 grams of buds in no more than just over a month. While its form strongly suggests an indica background, this strain contains enough sativa to provide both an energetic high and a tranquil feeling.

With a similar genetic background to our Easy Bud but crossed with Skunk to create a new autoflowering feminized variety. We call this bonsai-like autoflowering variety Royal Dwarf.

Royal Dwarf is a very compact plant. This compact structure, along with its tight buds, make it ideal for growing indoors or outdoors in reduced spaces. It is a mix of some of our best autoflowering strains crossed with an exceptional skunk female, which was then was crossed back to the autoflowering parent to retain its amazing autoflowering ability.

The skunk has given it a different flavour and slightly larger yield than other autoflowering varieties. This compact plant can produce up to 60 g a plant. Like most Skunk hybrids, Royal Dwarf has a very strong aroma and hard resin-covered buds.

Small and mighty, Royal Dwarf grows quickly, reaching an average height of 40 to 60 cm. Ready for harvest in just 8 to 9 weeks. The effect is much like a good old Skunk variety. It gives a mild social high and relaxing body stone. Small and easy to grow, this plant is great for any grower wanting to try out a different autoflowering variety.

Royal AK Automatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Royal AK Automatic
Despite a mainly sativa background, Royal AK Automatic is actually fairly compact at just one meter or nearly 40 inches, making it among the best cannabis strains for anyone looking for euphoria. From start to finish, Royal AK can sometimes generate 160 grams of blossoms within two-and-a-half months. This strain gives both a sweet flavor and a creative rush that’s tempered by a bit of mellow relaxation.

Originally a hybrid of Columbian, Mexican, Thai and Afghani, AK47 is classic strain of cannabis. This mostly Sativa strain is known and loved by many for its heavy-hitting effects and good yields. The many awards the strain has won over the years goes to show this.

Now this potent strain has been upgraded to a full automatic, the Royal AK Automatic. We crossed the classic AK47 with our best autoflowering genetics. Much like the original, this autoflowering hybrid produces potent resin-covered buds, with a somewhat spicy yet sweet taste. The aroma is almost like musky, sweet incense.

Royal AK Automatic’s high is happy and active, giving a nice up high balanced with a gentle body stone. Strong and smooth just like the original. The only real difference is that the Royal AK Automatic is easier to grow and can be harvested in just 9 to 10 weeks after planting the seed.

It will grow to a maximum height of around 80 to 100 cm, this allows Royal AK Automatic to be grown almost anywhere. This potent autoflowering strain gives great yields in the right conditions, producing up to 160 g per plant! Like all of our strains, the Royal AK Automatic seeds are feminized, making them even easier to grow.

White Widow Automatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

White Widow Automatic
With clear indica dominance, White Widow Automatic provides some of the best weed seeds for medical cannabis. The plants are great for indoor production, yielding a usual height of only half a meter or just over one-and-a-half feet with the occasional plant growing twice this tall. An amazingly productive strain, White Widow Automatic generates 190 to 240 grams of lemony-tasting, pain and anxiety-relieving flowers in just a month and two weeks.

The White Widow Automatic is a new cross of a classic Dutch strain, White Widow, recognised by most smokers and growers as an absolute classic strain. We got our hands on a great clone of the original White Widow variety and crossed it with our finest autoflowering strains.

Like the non-autoflowering original White Widow, this strain has wide, dark green leaves and is dusted with a heavy coating of resin. The White Widow Automatic replicates the original White Widow very closely but only takes around 75 days to grow from seed to bud. The only real difference is the autoflowering growth, smaller size and slightly more physical stoned effect.

The buds, despite their hybrid genetics, have a mainly Indica appearance and effect. The White Widow Automatic has a sweet and sour, citrus-like aroma and taste, similar to but not as strong as White Widow. This strain was bred for a few years to ensure stability in the genetics. Indoors it will grow to an average height of around 50 cm, with some larger plants reaching 100 cm. Its yield is quite good for an autoflowering strain and it will produce around 190 to 240 grams per plant depending on conditions.
Royal Haze Automatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Royal Haze Automatic
Haze has always been a famous line of sativa cannabis plants with the usual drawbacks of being too large and taking too long to grow. Now you can buy cannabis seeds that’ll produce a manageable version with all the benefits. Royal Haze Automatic maintains a compact form of no more than one meter or just under three-and-a-half feet and is ready to harvest in just three months at the most. The resulting crop can total 180 grams of THC-laden blooms that will supply a generous number of mind-expanding trips.

If you’ve ever visited the coffeeshops of Amsterdam, you’ll know that the haze varieties are some of the most popular. They have a fresh taste and an uplifting high which everyone loves. The problem is they take a long time to grow and flower. Royal Haze Automatic offers a solution to this problem.

We crossed Amnesia Haze, one of Amsterdam’s finest hazes, with a Skunk and then crossed it with our autoflowering varieties. The result is an amazing autoflowering feminized variety which you can grow to harvest in just 10 to 12 weeks.

It will grow to a height of around 60 to 100 cm. This short size and quick flowering means that Royal Haze Automatic can be grown in places where normal haze varieties wouldn’t grow. Grown in good conditions, each plant will generally produce around 180 g.

Royal Haze Automatic has all you would want from a haze variety, but without the difficulty of growth and long flowering times. It doesn’t taste like a normal autoflowering variety, but just like a regular haze. This is the perfect strain for people who love Haze but want something easier to grow.
Royal Creamatic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Royal Creamatic
Two months is all it takes to reap the bounty of Royal Creamatic. These compact plants won’t exceed one meter or just under three-and-a-half feet and are smothered in buds. In fact, 165 grams of bless is not an unreasonable expectation. The high they produce is a powerful sedating effect that makes them perfect for medicinal needs. As great as their effect is their flavor. This new edition to the Royal Queen seed bank has a unique caramel flavor that makes them worth it alone.

The newest member of the Royal Queen Seeds Autoflowering seed collection. The Royal Creamatic brings a new flavour to the autoflowering family. We took our best autoflowering genetics and crossed them with Cream Caramel, a popular Spanish Indica strain which is a cross of BlueBlack, Maple Leaf Indica and White Rhino.

Known for its intense, sweet caramel flavour and strong physical effects. The result is our Royal Creamatic, a strain that retains the sweet caramel aroma and strong effects but is much quicker and easier to grow.

The Royal Creamatic is a small-to-medium sized autoflowering feminized variety, which means you’ll have only bud-producing female plants and no unwanted male plants taking up space.  Generally, it will grow one main big bud and just a few small side branches. This is a powerful plant that flowers quickly, growing to a maximum height of around 70-100 cm. This makes it ideal for smaller indoor gardens where more plants can be placed in the area.

Even though small, The Royal Creamatic can produce from 165 g if treated right. Ready for harvest just 8 weeks after planting the seeds.  This is a top quality autoflowering variety that produces dense, resin-covered buds with a great taste and a heavy, relaxing physical effect .
Royal Bluematic Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Royal Bluematic
Blueberries were the inspiration behind this strain. Royal Bluematic is a new member of the Royal Queen cannabis seeds bank that exudes a fragrant blueberry taste. After only a week into the third month, Royal Bluematic’s buds are relatively few but considerably large, totaling 120 grams. With plenty of CBD, the flowers are perfect for both medical purposes and everyday stress relief.

This is our feminized autoflowering version of the famous Blueberry, known worldwide for its sweet berry flavour and aroma. We already had a great version of this plant in our Blue Mystic but now we have an autoflowering variety to give you even more choice.

We crossed our autoflowering strains with the best genetics from the Blue Family, the classic cross of Thailand races, Thai hybrids and an old school Afghan bred by legendary breeders in California and Oregon. This produced our Royal Bluematic. Thanks to the autoflowering genetics, this plant is now easier to grow and you can harvest just 8 to 9 weeks after planting the seeds.

Royal Bluematic grows to a medium-to-tall height for an autoflowering variety, averaging around 60-75 cm. Like most autoflowering varieties, it will grow very few side branches and dedicates all its energy to producing one large main bud. It will produce on average around 120 g per plant.

Due to its mostly Indica genetics, Royal Bluematic has a smooth, relaxing stoned effect. The flavour is much like our Blue Mystic, a sweet smell and blueberry-like taste. It is an easy plant to grow, with a good taste and effect; the perfect combination.

Quick One Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Quick One
This plant strain earned its name by usually only taking two months to give up its treasure. Quick One is both fast and compact. They rarely go past a height of 60 centimeters or two feet. With a mixed ancestry of indica, ruderalis, and some sativa, Quick One has a moderate calming high and a subdued, refreshing relish. In spite of its little size and quick growth, you can count on 150 grams from each plant at harvest time, the result of it being feminized like all other varieties offered by Royal Queen Seeds.

Quick One is a fast-growing autoflowering strain. This was one of the first autoflowering strains developed. When it was first released, it was one of the quickest growing strains on the planet.

Coming from Canadian genetics, Quick One is based on the original autoflowering strain, Lowryder. This strain was created from a cross between Williams Wonder, Northern Lights and Ruderalis. The Ruderalis genetics gave the plant its autoflowering ability, which means it will flower automatically without a change in the light schedule. These genetics have given birth to almost all autoflowering strains available today.

Quick One seeds are all feminized and, when planted, will grow into strong female plants, flower automatically and be ready for harvest in around 8 weeks. Some plants may take up to 9 weeks to be fully mature, but that’s still pretty quick. Especially when you consider that some varieties of cannabis can take up to 20 weeks just to flower.

Quick One is a small, compact plant. Generally, it will not grow any taller than 50 to 60 cm. If grown well, it can yield up to 150 g per plant, and some growers have achieved even more. The plants have a fresh, herbal, almost citrus-like aroma. The taste is mild but good, and comes with a pleasant physically stoned effect.
Easy Bud Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Easy Bud
It’s particularly true that anyone with a medical marijuana need probably doesn’t want too many hassle with growing it. This is what makes Easy Bud a fantastic choice for both pain sufferers and those just looking for some quality couch-lock time. Not surprisingly, this capability comes from the strain’s indica pedigree. After just a couple of months of growing cannabis seeds like these, you can look forward to 165 grams of sweet-tasting pleasure from 60cm or two-foot plants that can fit practically anywhere with minimal effort.

Most of our autoflowering feminized strains are easy to grow. This one, however, is so easy to grow that we had to call it Easy Bud.

Easy Bud is very similar to the autoflowering strain White Dwarf. It is a cross between autoflowering Ruderalis and strong Indica strains. The autoflowering  Ruderalis genetics mean it can grow almost anywhere. And it will flower automatically after just a few weeks. The Indica genetics have given it a stronger smoke and a relaxing physical effect.

Easy Bud will grow and flower from seed in just 8 to 9 weeks. The plants stay small, growing to an average height of 50 to 60 cm. This allows it to be grown in small grow rooms or areas that may not accomodate larger plants.

For such a small, easy-to-grow plant, Easy Bud gives fair yields and, in good conditions, will yield around 165 g per plant. The buds have quite a strong, skunky smell and a sweet taste. This is a great variety for people who just want a nice and easy grow. Whether you are a first-time grower or just looking for something different to grow, it’s easy with Easy Bud.

Five Things That The Drug War Has Accomplished

Five Things That The Drug War Has Accomplished

Ronald Reagan was so proud of himself for starting the war on drugs. It’s almost painful to watch older footage and watch his face as he talks about how he’s going to stomp out drugs and keep the American people safe. Unfortunately for him, the war has only hindered the inevitable explosion of support for the freedom to ingest substances. The drug war hasn’t helped to keep drugs out of our society. Instead, the support for substances like marijuana is at an all time high… No pun intended. The war on substances has done many negative things for the American people, contrary to Reagan’s original nonsense idea that the war on part of the people’s freedom would be a successful venture.

1. By keeping the black market alive and well fed, the drug war has created deep roots, especially in the communities closer to Mexico that are heavily involved in gang activity. 60% of drug cartel profits come from marijuana itself. If the supply of black market marijuana were to vanish, cartels would lose more than half of their profits to a legal, taxable business. Not to mention cutting down on gang related crime in those same areas.

2. While the cops are out trying to bust some teenager for having a gram of weed, there are real criminals escaping the eye of the law. Recently, there has been an explosion of heroin use among general population. But the police don’t seem to be dealing with it and are paying more attention to nonviolent pot smokers.

3. In the olden days, there were no cops driving around in armor plated tanks. There were no heartbeat skips when a police car cruised by. It used to be that the police were there to protect the people when they were needed. Now, the police are put in place to scare people in to complying with laws. Since the start of the drug war, police no longer feel compelled to act like citizens. They are now above the law, breaking in to houses, harassing people, and shooting innocent people who simply want to light a plant on fire and inhale the smoke.

4. These days, if you get caught with marijuana, the government doesn’t want you to get away with it. Instead of letting you go with a warning, lawyers would rather lock you up. Why? Privatized prisons rake in money from prisoners. By putting small time criminals in jail, the government and the state make money for that person being there. Do they care that you have no foundation when you get out? Do they care that you might be homeless and without any way to make money? No because you’re no longer a dollar sign.

5. One of the biggest effects of the drug war is that people no longer respect the people who enforce the laws or make the laws. Most people will obey laws that are put in to place without question, as long as the law makes sense to them. While marijuana support snowballs and continues to reach new minds, the government will no longer be able to uphold the illusion that the plant is bad. If people refuse to believe that marijuana is bad, it will no longer hold that negative stigma.

Five Things That The Drug War Has Accomplished

San Diego first legal marijuana dispensary

SAN DIEGO — An appeal of a conditional use permit granted to a San Diego State University business professor to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Otay Mesa was unanimously denied by the city’s Planning Commission today.

In October, a city hearing officer granted a conditional use permit to David Blair to open A Green Alternative in a 1,400-square-foot space in a strip mall at 2335 Roll Drive, near the Brown Field airport. It was the first permit for a legal dispensary to be granted by the city.

The hearing officer’s ruling was appealed by Barbara Gordon, a North County drug prevention specialist.

Blair applied for the permit under rules established by the City Council earlier this year. The regulations require prospective dispensary owners to go through a lengthy permit application process, and also specify zoning and distances to keep the operations away from residences, schools, churches and the like.

In the case of A Green Alternative, the neighborhood is zoned “heavy commercial” and includes a fast-food restaurant, a filling station and a warehouse.

Commissioner Susan Peerson said A Green Alternative “meets and exceeds” the requirements of the permit.

Blair and his representatives told the commissioners that they have hired a security firm to provide guards at all times for the facility. They also said the nearest neighborhood is 4.9 miles away and the nearest residence, which is just under 2 miles away, is a prison.

“We know right from wrong, we know what the ordinance says,” Blair said. “The reason that we floated to the first position (among permit applicants) is because every time the city requested something of us, we doubled it.”

Opponents of the dispensary contended that “heavy commercial” doesn’t adequately describe the area because the businesses are patronized by families with children.

When A Green Alternatives does open, it will be the first legal medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego and the second in the county. One opened on unincorporated land near El Cajon in July.

The rules set by the City Council will allow up to four legal marijuana dispensaries per council district within city limits.

A couple of other dispensaries have been approved by the hearing officer. City planning staff is still processing other permit applications.

Police and code enforcement officers have worked with the City Attorney’s Office to get court orders to shut down numerous pot shops operating illegally.

Four American Dad Stoner Moments

Four American Dad Stoner Moments

11419077_434570173393192_359436998_n

Marijuana has long been snuck into cartoons and movies as hidden references, but the cast of American Dad has some of my favorite and most blatant stoner references this side of Langley Falls. Since the cartoon has the same type of humor as Family Guy and South Park, there is no holding back when it comes to illicit references. The entire cast of American Dad (including CIA father, Stan Smith) has indulged in the Devil’s Lettuce… Some on more than one occasion!

Joint Custody
Stan and Roger
Stan, the always-against-everything-illegal guy, finds out that his daughters boyfriend Jeff has an outstanding warrant for pot smuggling in Florida and decides to trick him back into the sunshine state so he can be rid of him for good. After a string of leprechaun and Dog the Bounty hunter type hijinks, Stan finds himself tied up in Jeff’s dad’s barn that just so happens to be full of “the kind”, as Roger so eloquently put it. After starting a fire in the barn, they become incredibly high and get lost in a convenient store looking at snacks and cat food. Classic stoner move.

Stoners love American Dad

The People Vs Martin Sugar
Francine and Jeff
Jeff moves into the Smith home and is told that he can no longer smoke weed which he initially agrees to, but we soon find out that he will chronically masturbate without it. Francine catches Jeff multiple times everywhere from the bathroom to the pantry before she decides she has had enough and agrees to allow Jeff to smoke. We are treated to a final scene with Francine sporting the hair style from there’s something about Mary in a smokey room while she downs a full 2 liter of orange soda, much to Jeff’s surprise.

11428698_721119437992548_186618894_n

Son of Stan
Roger
Stan and Francine put out a fifty thousand dollar reward to anyone that can stop Jeff and Hayley’s wedding so, of course, Roger decides that he wants the money for himself. Roger decides that to catch a stoner, you have to be stoned. He gets super high while Clause watches in horror. Once the high takes hold of Roger, we are treated to a MGMT fueled trip through time and space on a skateboard that ends right at Jeff and Hayley’s feet. Annoying noises and hilarity ensues (if you are also high, that is).

It’s Good To Be the Queen
Clause and Jeff
This episode focuses on Francine’s high school reunion and Stan’s shame of his own prom. Stan is obsessed with dancing with the prom queen. However, there is a small back story of Hayley and Jeff about to eat pot brownies when Clause accidentally eats one without realizing. Any episode with Clause being out of his mind is a favorite of mine, especially when he feels threatened by the little scuba diver in his bowl and tries to flush himself down the toilet like so many peoples’ stashes before him.

Ten Illnesses That Marijuana Helps

Medical-Cannabis1

potential.therapeutic.medical.marijuanaTen Illnesses That Marijuana Helps

Marijuana has been proven to help patients with certain illnesses, including the most severe like cancer. Big Pharma is notorious for giving people prescriptions to drugs that aren’t actually helping. Who wants to take a pill to treat depression where the side effects include increased risk of suicide? While doctors and drug makers stock their pockets with green, a different shade of the color is beginning to take the medical community by storm.

1706ST1

1. Depression
There are many Americans (and others worldwide) that suffer from the cold draw of depression. With a bleak outlook on life, these patients have trouble even getting out of bed in the morning. While some people will argue hand over fist that marijuana increases depression, those that have switched from Zoloft to Mary Jane know that the plant makes life seem much more bright.

2. Nausea
Feeling like you’re going to vomit? Most chemo patients have severe problems with nausea, making it hard for them to maintain a healthy weight while enduring the harsh radiation treatments. Other people deal with bad nausea as well, including people who simply come down with the flu. While doctors will prescribe hard drugs like Anzamet (which lead users to terrible nightmares and side effects similar to Parkinson’s), marijuana is a miracle plant when treating nausea. One bong hit and your stomach never felt better.

3. Glaucoma
When the watery surface of the human eye deteriorates, doctors are quick to prescribe topical eye ointments/drops to their patients. The drawbacks of these medicines? Constant blurry vision is one, which would make driving or functioning in public extremely difficult, not to mention a permanent eye color change, transforming the iris from whatever color it currently is to brown. Studies dating back to the 70s show that marijuana is extremely effective at treating intraocular pressure in people suffering with glaucoma.

4. Insomnia
If you mention to your doc that you’re having trouble sleeping, expect that they’re giving you something heavy like Benzos, tranquilizers, and sedatives. While these pills may help you sleep, the chance that you develop a dependency in high, no pun intended. Marijuana has been lulling people in to a healthy sleep since before most people knew what insomnia was.

5. Asthma
Bronchial spasms plague a good deal of people world wide. Having trouble breathing can be a terrifying experience and most people who suffer from asthma carry an inhaler with them at all times. Most doctors will prescribe Salbutamol for such an affliction. Side effects Potentially death if used wrong, not to mention extreme anxiety and tremors. So you’ll be able to breathe if you can get past your fear of everything around you and the fact that your hands no longer stay still. Marijuana actually opens the airways in your lungs and doesn’t have such a high mortality rate.

6. Cardiovascular Issues
High cholesterol becomes more of a common issue every day. Doctors tend to prescribe statins for these disorders and sometimes recommend Aspirin for it’s anti-clotting properties. But while pregnant women can’t ingest statins and Aspirin can cause bleeding in the stomach, these methods aren’t exactly perfect. Studies done on mice, however, show that marijuana reverses artery clogging and can even protect the heart from heart attacks in the future.

7. PTSD
Post traumatic stress disorder is something that more and more people seem to be diagnosed with. Considering how traumatic the world is getting, this makes sense. But with the doctors sticking to prescribing debilitating anti-depressants to treat this disorder, many people are suffering even more. Side effects stemming from these medicines include sexual problems, worsening depression, and dependency. The cannabis plant work to regulate the memories that trigger PTSD and the sativa strains that are available induce euphoria, making the user forget (even temporarily) what is causing their PTSD.

medical-marijuana

8. Alzheimer’s Disease
This degenerative disorder is not only painful for the person who has it but for those around them. There are no well known treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease. With only four drugs known to slow the progression of the disease, the treatments’ effectiveness isn’t well measured. Not to mention the drugs used can cause anorexia and a slower heart rate, leading to other problems. Those patients with Alzheimer’s that have used marijuana are shown to have reduced inflammation in the brain tissue. Add in the fact that marijuana also prevents cell death by anti-oxidation and you have a far better medicine for this terrible affliction.

9. Cancer
Most people will argue until they’re blue in the face that chemotherapy is the only treatment for cancer. But with a high relapse rate, the radiation treatment leaves more families without one of their members more often than not. Those who go through chemo will lose their ability to eat and sleep, plus they will lose their hair and quite possibly their will to eve live anymore. There are many reports of people using cannabis oil to treat their cancer as compared to chemo, with far more positive results from the plant than the radiation treatment. Not only do some people believe that marijuana can actually cure cancer, the plant also helps those undergoing chemo to eat, sleep, and function more normally.

10. Chronic Pain
Whether you’re suffering from an accident that happened years ago (or recently) or you happen to get serious migraines, chances are the doctor will hand you a bottle of opiates, tell you to take two, and call him in the morning. What presents a problem with this is that for one, opiates don’t always work for people and can cause bad nausea and sickness in some. Oh and don’t forget the unbelievable amount of overdoses and addiction to opiates that the US is dealing with. More people die from opiate overdoses these days than traffic accidents. Guess how many people have died from marijuana? Still zero. And taking a bong hit will help any headache without the risk of becoming heavily addicted.

Five Reasons Smoking Marijuana Is Better Than Drinking

Five Reasons Smoking Marijuana Is Better Than Drinking

It’s Friday night stoners. You’re smoking marijuana in the process of making plans with your friends. Some of them want to head to the bar and drink until whenever the bars close. But on the other hand, your other buddies are planning on getting together and smoking blunt after blunt while pigging out on pizza and popcorn. What group of friends are you going to hang with? The potheads or the drinkers? Here’s five decently good reasons as to why you should choose the potheads. (Note; you’re obviously free to do what you want. We are in no way shaming people who like to drink and have a good time. But, let’s face it, marijuana is safer than alcohol and we want our readers to be safe!)

Don’t Drink And Drive. Smoke Marijuana And Fly!

1. If you choose to drink, there is a chance that you may end up passed out somewhere unpleasant. And by that, I don’t mean in an uncomfortable position in your buddies arm chair. I mean hugging the toilet/on the ground in an alley/random person’s car unpleasant. Even if you make it to your own bed, you still risk the chance of waking up in a puddle of whatever you ate before you started drinking… Or realizing that you karate chopped your air conditioner out of your second story window.

Cannabis-v-Alcohol

2. Hanging out with potheads tends to be a much less dangerous venture. Drunk people can get extremely rowdy and that can cause a spike in testosterone (or estrogen, depending on your gender). Recently, in a club in New England, a fight broke out at a popular club and when the police arrived to break it up, they found three people with stab wounds, one of which ended up dying. The club was so busy that the assailant still hasn’t been found. Chances are slim that your baked friends will try to stab you or anyone else and will instead focus on debating the best way to smoke weed for four hours while watching cartoons.

3. The term “weed hangover” mostly pertains to the feeling of still being high one gets when waking up after a night of heavy smoking. There is no headache or gross feeling in your stomach. Instead, you wake up groggy and find it hard to roll out of bed to get a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Alcohol not only dehydrates your body, but you get immediate withdrawal symptoms (the dreaded hangover). Some people who drink even start to get these withdrawals within minutes of their last drink.

marijuana vs alcohol

4. Going to a bar almost guarantees that your wallet will be empty when you wake up. Not only are drinks extremely expensive but you have to tip the bartender or server that’s taking care of you. And if you don’t tip these people, you absolutely should not be drinking at the bar. You don’t have to tip the weedman, unless you feel like giving him a pack of stickers from your favorite 420 friendly company.

alcohol-vs-marijuana-420-cannabis-weed-thcfinder

5. If you’ve ever had one too many drinks in your life, you know how possible it is to wake up in bed with someone that you may not find as attractive as the night before. Drunk goggles get people in to a lot of uncomfortable situations. Maybe you hook up with someone you don’t find attractive, your ex, or your best friend’s significant other. Alcohol makes people make some questionable choices. But smoking a few blunts probably won’t bring you down this path and you’ll most likely end up cuddling a pillow (or, you know, your boy/girlfriend) instead of someone (or something) that you shouldn’t be.

Stoner Jobs: An Inside Profile At Firefly

Stoner Jobs: An Inside Profile At Firefly

Having at least one or two stoner internships before getting a real job seems normal. Leading into the summer of ‘15, I definitely felt like I had to get out there and have my own internship. It sounds a little bit ridiculous right, but that’s truly what I was thinking during my first year of college.

I searched around and spoke to some connections through my mom, and eventually found an internship. But, this was not the job that I ever dreamed I would have had. The company was Firefly, an SF-based vaporizer start-up

I went to high school in the bay area, so I had quite a bit of exposure to stoners and I thought I knew a lot about the industry. But after working for Firefly I realized just how wrong I was.

stoner stuff

Now I want to share with you what I saw and learned about the industry from the inside. This article is about being a teenager and seeing the industry from the inside of one of the most technologically advanced companies in the business. I went from having a normal street education to actually knowing the truth of the legal dope industry.

What do I mean by the truth? Well for example, golden clear wax isn’t actually the best. The best wax is red gold and totally see through. But that’s for another time. Let me take you back to before summer.

When I met the founder of a vaporizer company at a business seminar I was pretty excited. Mark and I really kicked it off, and I ended up having an interview with Firefly to be their intern. And to my surprise, I got the job.

Now, at this point, I had never been to keen on vaporizers. Sure, there were like 5 kids that owned Pax’s on my floor in the dorms, but hitting a Pax is no fun. It’s basically an overpriced, ,simple, and flashy vaporizer . In my opinion, it’s best suited for girls who like weed but not smoking it, or for people that want something that looks ‘cute’.

But still, I didn’t have to like the product, I just had to work with it. I honestly had no clue what to expect. Was I going into an office that was seshing all day? Was I going to be working with fat stoners? I certainly hoped so! Well, it ended up being the opposite. I wouldn’t even see weed in the office until two months into my internship! I was working with real professionals. Take this for instance, one of our co-founders, Mark Williams was one of the lead product designers for Mac OS software until he joined the vaporizer industry. Yea, so this was legit shit.

The thing that I loved from the very start was how seriously they took me. I was basically given a list of projects that I had to finish. The assignments ranged all over the place and were really interesting. I had/have to catalogue every dispensary in California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado, I had to go through a modeling catalogue and write about all the up and coming talent:), I also had to find a ton of popular weed instagrams to work with on advertising. And that’s just a small snippet of my work, not even including going to dispensaries all over the bay area.

Have you ever seen the backroom of a stoners dispensary? Literally pounds of fire weed everywhere.

My third day on the job a coworker and I headed down to SPARC, a dispensary that we really like and work closely with. It’s an incredible place, really clean, high end, and friendly. They have a lounge with Volcano Vaporizers and Fireflys to use, and once a month they even have live jazz to vape to!

Places like Sparc were another cool perk about Firefly. Firefly doesn’t waste time on mediocre (I don’t want no mediocre, from the head to the toe they so far from mediocre). We literally only work with the most high end places you can think of. Sparc and Apothecarium in SF, Native Roots in Colorado, and Nectar in Portland, just to give you an idea.

That day we were at Sparc to teach the budtenders how to properly use the Firefly (it was fun smoking people out all day), because if you don’t have proper instruction, it can be a challenge. For instance, a lot of people will finely grind their weed but the Firefly works better with a coarse grind.

It’s built with a dynamic convection system. Currently, every other portable vape uses conduction to vape which has a pretty high risk for combustion and loss of active ingredients in the plant. Not exactly the smartest way to vape.

You put weed in the oven and it heats the metal up which burns the weed. Firefly’s convection system heats up the air that passes over the herb, giving you real vapor. That’s why you want to have a coarse grind, so that the air can flow through the bowl smoothly.

stoner cannabis

This dynamic convection system has a lot more implications than you think. The reason it was made like this is to give the user the “full plant experience”.

This is one of those things that average stoners just don’t get, but will become well known in a few years.

From Strawberry Cough to Trainwreck, every cannabis strain has a unique blend of over 85 cannabinoids and 100 terpenoid flavors. Each of these compounds activate at a different temperature. Each strain has it’s own unique combination which results in unique flavors and effects.

Due to the fact that all these ingredients release at different boiling points that range from 200°F to a little bit above 400° F the problem becomes capturing all of them. This little dilemma is what the Firefly was built around. The Firefly only heats up when you are inhaling. Meaning that every single hit you get is going from room temperature to 400° catching every single ingredient on the way. The outcome is incredible flavor and the most pure high.

I literally did a full 180 this summer going from bong rips to vape hits because the Firefly is just the best. Remember, I was never even a vape fan to begin with, I thought it was weak shit. But the Firefly is different.

You just read my first article that didn’t even cover more than my first week in my internship. I am going to be releasing new articles throughout the year all about life with Firefly and being a young person involved. You will read some crazy stuff, like when I met a lady that was on her deathbed for ten years and then healed herself with dabs. True. You will learn the shit that companies aren’t telling you. You’ll learn about the chillest companies that are coming out. Like a dab rig that requires no setup or butane, it’s fully electrical, you just turn it on, it heats up, and you dab.

Those and many more coming soon…

Stoners Magical Northwest Adventure

On Instagram there are beautiful pictures of lost mountain passes and forgotten, dew-dripped highways that lead out into the sunset. Mixed with wandering pictures of lost hippy girls are their long slender fingers dripped around an expertly wrapped blunt. In order to achieve your perfect Instagram-worthy North-Western adventure, there are a few things you should know.

Stoners Love the Forest

Remember to bring everything, being the most prepared person is the name of the game when enjoying your day here. Bring your fire, bring your tent, you can also reserve your campground ahead of time if you know where you want to stay. There are rainforests to see, and hot springs to hit up, from Bagby hot springs outside of Portland, to the Olympic hot springs in Washington, and nothing would ruin a day more than coming back to your tent only to find you forgot your towel. If you have a surplus store, or discount camping store near you, I would get what you need before you go or just turn your car into the ultimate tent. Don’t joke around with rain gear in the NorthWest, dew-dropped mornings come from thunderstorms all night. For camping I highly recommend bringing along edibles of some sort, as they will survive the trip easier, and you won’t have to worry about blocking for the wind when trying to light a pipe.

stoners-pacific-northwestStoners Along the Coast

(pictures coutesy of goway.com)

Think about renting a yurt. Many are heated and available by the coast for cents on what a hotel room will cost. Along the coast you can spend a whole day creeping on the edges of tidepools and touching the edge of nature. I would recommend spending time along the Pacific highway, cruising the rock touched shores in Oregon. While possessing weed is legal in Oregon, you cannot purchase it until October 01, and transporting it across state lines is technically a federal crime. That being said, while along the coast and ending your nights indoors, I would recommend going for long walks along the beach, away from any other guests visiting the beautiful Oregon coast, and taking a reefer-cigarette when you do. It is easier to dispose of and can be neatly tossed away, and it can also be easier to travel with just a small grinder, like this one, and some wraps rather than with a glass piece.

 

Getting Fresh in Seattle, or Grimy in Portland

 

Lose yourself in the beauty of Seattle, at the fish markets, in Chinatown, or in the museums, like Tacoma Glass museum. You could spend months crawling the streets of Seattle and just staring at things, but what you need to know before you go is where to get  your filling, I found a fairly easy to follow map with dispensaries and reviews about each of them here. I would recommend starting at China Town, and getting either a steaming cup, or milky boba tea in your hand before adventuring down to the wharf and looking through all the hidden shops and nooks and crannies hidden below it.

stoners-northwest

Portland is a grimier scene, like if Seattle was punk rock. You can’t buy weed here, but Vancouver is just over the bridge. Smoking there and enjoying the food trucks, and crazy donut scene in Portland is magical. I would also recommend going  Powell’s bookstore if you have a day to lose yourself among the mountains of books.

 

There are a thousand and a half places to lose yourself in the Northwest, it all depends on what real-life instagram picture you want to wander into. Where do you lose yourself into?
