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.

Why Marijuana Gives You The Munchies

Why Marijuana Gives You The Munchies

Have you ever wondered why you were so hungry after that fat bowl you just smoked? Well ponder no more! In this documentary Health Decoder explains the science behind the hunger, otherwise known as the munchies.

I’m so hungry I could eat an elephant!

eating-an-elphant

To explain why marijuana gives you the munchies we must take a close at the human brain. Marijuana contains a substance called Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, which is responsible for getting you high. THC trigers the part of your brain that says, “Hey we need food man!” Normally your brain would send out that message to an empty stomach but not in this case. THC is making you hungry.

Munchies-Stoner-Food-2

THC also makes the foods we love taste that much better. Like that bomb ass grill cheese your mom makes. Scientists have found out that THC increases the pleasurable response to eating or drinking sugar. Normally when you eat sugar it induces a rewarding feeling due to the release of dopamine. In the presents of THC significantly more dopamine is released inside of the brain making you feel incredible happy eating that big juicy hamburger. It’s the same hamburger you normally eat but when you’re totally baked it’s so much better!

Munchies-Stoner-Food

Let’s get super high and raid the kitchen. Go fill your taste buds with that ultimate delicious concoction that you made up, let it carry you away. Can you taste it yet? What are you waiting for? Dig in stoners dig in.

A Toddlers Medical Marijuana Miracle

A Toddlers Medical Marijuana Miracle

Mike Hyde, a resident of Montana, noticed his son Cashy acting quite differently than his normal happy self. It was shortly after that Cashy was diagnosed with cancer at the age of just one and half. The little boy, Cashy, had a 4.5cm brain tumor – bigger than the size of a golf ball. The Hyde family was crushed with the devastating news, how could their precious little boy have this life threatening disease? It was time to take action and find a solution.

cashy-sick-cancer

He was transferred to Salt Lake City Children’s Hospital where surgeons could only remove 10% of the brain tumor. They were hoping that aggressive treatments such as kemo and stem cell research could remove the rest but sadly the attempts to rid the cancer was making Cashy deathly ill. Cashy could not eat anymore and was coming close to death. Mike was in desperate search to find a cure for his son.

cannabis-oil-medicine

 

Cannabis oil was the answer! Cashys doctors would not even discuss the oil with the family. Mike knew he had to get authorization. Once authorized they were able to give him the oil through a feeding tube connected to his stomach and told the doctors to stop all the nausea drugs. Almost immediately Cashy was miraculously recovering, able to eat and gain back his strength to fight. Cannabis oil saved Cashys life and now he is cancer free.

It is amazing how much cannabis is over looked for its medical benefits. I believe it is our responsibility as a human race to use Gods given plants such as cannabis for our own well being. Let’s step up and fight back for our own rights! Cannabis is not harmful drug, it is a useful drug that provides safe living and growth. Marijuana saves lives!

Reefer Madness – original trailer

Reefer Madness – original trailer

In 1936 the film Reefer Madness was released in the theaters to the public. It was originally released under the title Tell Your Children by a church group but soon fell into the hands of movie producers. It was intended to show parents the dangers of the “immoral drug” known as cannabis.

Weed-madness-poster

As told in the movie, smoking marijuana will lead to: paranoia, madness, rape, manslaughter, and suicide. Before the movie actually begins a warning is released: “The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you. It would not have been possible otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Marihuana is that drug — a violent narcotic — an unspeakable scourge — The Real Public Enemy Number One!” Can we all just take a minute to laugh…haha that is great! Stoners are murders and weed is the public enemy? Come on, really? That is so hilarious!

reefer-madness-smoking

If the claims are true well shit man I’m fucked!!

So wait you’re telling me that stoners are menses to society? I don’t know what kind of potheads those people were associating with but I must report back that most reefers are peaceful individuals. Peace and love baby, that’s my motto!

Reefer-Madness-1936

Hippies will tell you the same, make love not war. It wasn’t until the 1970s did the film recirculate and gain a new audience (a.k.a. the hippies) and was some great comedy for the stoners. Reefers, let’s roll out a fatty and pass it to the right while we laugh are paranoid minds off to this clip and become reefer mad! Let’s become insane in the brain!

Don’t Forget Your Medicine

drug use

Don’t Forget Your Medicine

Through out the course of history man has been searching for new ways to connect with God, nature and mental clarity.

Everything from eating to drinking natural planets that can provide a gate way to another realm, or flat out creating hallucinogenics, methamphetamine’s and opiates.

Drugs have destroyed many lives, have left millions homeless, orphaned, abused and dead. With so many wrongs about drugs what good can come out of them?

LSD:

Many people that grow up during the fifties and sixties knew the government experimented with LSD on human subjects to test its properties as an agent of war. Few people know that the psychiatric community also took a huge interest in this psychoactive drug.

LSD

Studies in the fifties showed that using LSD to treat alcoholism resulted in a 50% success rate.

Compared to the 10% success rate from Alcoholics Anonymous. In the Spring Grove State Hospital in Maryland, researchers provided terminal cancer patients with LSD to see if it could help reduce their anxieties about death. One third of the patients said they felt less tense, less depressed, less afraid of death and in less pain. Another third reported these conditions reduced moderately and the last group said their condition did not improve at all, but also did not worsen.

We know how drugs are harmful to the body, but do we understand that these same drugs used with the proper supervision can not only help but maybe even save lives.

 Test To See If Your Marijuana Is Flushed Properly

Next time you’re burning a bowl of Kush or whatever your favorite bud of the day is, pay attention to how hard it is to ignite the bud and keep it lit. Also look at whether the bud burns to a fluffy white ash, or something darker and denser.

If your bud is properly dried/cured but hard to light, it’s full of fertilizer salts, natural compounds and/or chemical compounds.

In fact, your marijuana can absorb and store heavy metals, radioactive materials, fertilizer salts and other materials that aren’t good for you to smoke.

Why is it illegal to grow hemp in the United States of America when many other industrialized nations have embraced the many economic uses and benefits of industrial. non-cannabis hemp? It’s only a matter of time before hemp becomes a mainstay of our economy and helps to clean up our environment.

The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross’s flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp.

Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces four times as much pulp with at least four to seven less pollution.
