  • Growing Your Collection of Cannabis Seeds to Perfection

    Growing cannabis in many places is unfortunately still against the law. Growing a prized cannabis seed collection however in many of these places is not against the law. Regular cannabis seeds are what many collectors are after. There is talk that in the future cannabis seeds will only be available in the form of feminized cannabis seeds. If this becomes true, then only those who have regular cannabis seeds would have the ability to produce more seeds without buying from a licensed supplier.

    Could this really happen? Or, is this just another form of propaganda being used a cannabis scare tactic?

    If it were a scare tactic, what would be the reasoning behind it? Could it be to try and discredit the breeders and growers who produce cannabis seeds? If so why? Nobody is sure. Something that is clear about cannabis is that government officials in just about any place have no support for cannabis until it’s them or their loved one who needs it or the financial side of it presents an opportunity for them.  Collect your cannabis seeds because in the future you are going to need them. Just look at the seed collectors from decades gone by. Somewhere, someone has my holy grail of cannabis seeds. A pack of original Skunk seeds from the Sacred Seed Collective.

    Just think of what a joy it must have been when the Exodus Collective went to grow their pack of seeds and one of them phenotyped into what today is “reefered” to as Exodus Cheese aka UK Cheese! Who knows one day in the future this could be you. But, without a good collection on hand, you may not be able to sow the land when the time comes. When you want to build your cannabis seed collection with nothing but the best cannabis seed genetics on the planet there’s only one place you need to go. That place is the legendary purveyor of premium cannabis seed genetics, Midweek Song.

  • Medical vs Retail Cannabis Edibles

    Cannabis edibles are a great way for many people to enjoy the benefits that cannabis has to offer. For those who don't partake in the smoking or vaping lifestyle consuming cannabis edibles can be essential for them to receive valuable Phytocannabinoids. Cannabis edibles are available on both the retail/recreational and medical sides of the cannabis market.

    The average retail cannabis dispensary offers 100 mg cannabis edibles to the public 21 and up with a valid state-issued ID. Medical dispensaries however, are a little bit different. In Colorado, for example, you can get a chocolate bar called FUBAR that is 420 mg of THC. You can also get gummy like candies called Pucks that come in 250mg containers with 10 pieces, each with 25 mg of THC.

    Pucks come in fruit flavors like cherry, watermelon, strawberry, and assorted. They are a little bit different than other edibles as they use a method in making them called Nano-extraction. A 25 mg Puck may hit you much faster than what you would expect. A new consumer might feel a little too relaxed and end up taking a nap consuming one of these whereas a seasoned consumer will want to eat all 10.

    Always be vigilant and careful when consuming cannabis edibles. The best advice is to try them when you have some downtime, so you will know how they affect you. Enjoy your cannabis edibles and always remember to keep them out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Festivals, Cups, and Expos - Which Ones Do You Know?

  • A U.S. Retail Market Update – Where’s What Legal?

    Last November 4 states in the United States passed laws that would regulate and legalize a retail cannabis market for residents in and tourists to their states. California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Maine joined Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington in the ever-growing list of states within the US who have chosen to legalize retail cannabis markets for adults.

    Nevada has already opened up its doors to this market allowing adults over the age of 21 to purchase cannabis products from licensed dispensaries. California is working out the details, but they are not very far behind. The latest news coming out of Massachusetts predicts that the state will see legal retail cannabis dispensaries before next summer. Maine, however, is facing major opposition from the governor. This is despite the fact that the residents of the state voted yes on a retail cannabis market last fall.

    Governor Paul LePage was described by Merry Jane as being a "staunch prohibitionist" and this can be seen clearly in his continued opposition to any piece of legislation that would legalize a retail cannabis market in the state. Recently legislators passed a committee bill that will regulate the legal weed industry that was approved by voters.

    The House and the Senate have finally agreed upon licensing, limitation rules and tax structures thus far. Unfortunately, the bill has now been sent to the governor's desk and it is highly anticipated that he will veto it. He will have 10 days to either sign the bill, veto it, or it will pass automatically after 10 days which of course is what we're hoping for. If the bill is vetoed by the governor, legislators will not revisit the issue again until January. This means that legal retail cannabis dispensaries could still be a far reach away for adults in the state of Maine.

  • What Else Will The Cannabis Act Legalize?

    It has been a long rocky road to get there but next year adults in the country of Canada will have access to retail cannabis. Adults over the age of 19 will be able to purchase cannabis and cannabis products without having to have a physician or medical recommendation. There are many other things though that Canada will see with this change and the passing of The Cannabis Act.

    Not only will adults in Canada be able to purchase cannabis and cannabis products from licensed providers they will also be able to grow their own. This is something only a handful of patients and consumers in legal states in the US are able to do. Unlike states in the United States which allow adults to grow their own cannabis for recreational purposes, in Canada, there has been no cap placed upon how much a resident of legal age can possess in their own private residence.

    With the passing of The Cannabis Act adults will also be able to share cannabis with their adult friends. The only stipulation is the same as what stands in states such as Colorado in the US, no money is allowed to be exchanged but you will be able to gift cannabis to a friend.

    Under The Cannabis Act, Canadian adult citizens will also be able to make their own cannabis extractions using nonorganic solvents. This means that you will not be able to utilize butane or propane to extract and make cannabis concentrates. Alternatively, you will be able to utilize rosin presses to make heat press rosin which is said to be the purest cannabis concentrate available.

    We can't forget to mention that bongs, pipes, and other paraphernalia will finally be legal in the country with the passing of The Cannabis Act. That's right it's still illegal to possess a pipe or bong in the country despite your age and the fact that they've had legal medical cannabis laws in effect for years. This will change though, next summer.

  • Cannabinoid Profiles and What You Should Know

    Phytocannabinoids are plant-based cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. These are two of the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis. While these two are very effective and are truly the root of happiness for many consumers science and continued education about cannabis is teaching us there's much more to it than that. There are 80+ cannabinoids found in cannabis. While our bodies naturally produce endo-cannabinoids we do not produce Phyto-cannabinoids such as those found in the cannabis plant. The Phyto-cannabinoids found in cannabis attached to our endocannabinoid systems’ CB1 and CB2 receptors.

    These receptors are located throughout our body in our skin and tissues all the way to our internal organs and even our brain. A lot of the times unless you go to advanced schooling the endocannabinoid system is not something you will learn about. Education should never stop. Exercise the mind by obtaining knowledge and information allowing you to make informed decisions of your own about things such as cannabis.

    We are still learning the benefits that different cannabinoids offer. CBD, THC, CBD, CBN, THCa, THCv, CBC, and other cannabinoids are helping people who suffer from a wide variety of symptoms ranging from neurological and gastrointestinal to chronic pain, sleep, and behavioral disorders just to name a few. The more we learn about cannabis the better we will understand all this plant has to potentially offer not only the people but the planet as well. Cannabis research is fundamental to the future of humankind. While this research has been anchored by cannabis prohibition the world is finally starting to see the light, the green light! When we create a sea of green our world will be better for it.

  • Legalization Leads to Regulation and a Safer Environment

    Cannabis legalization in the UK faces many obstacles. One of the biggest obstacles is the abundance of misinformation. Much like that of the United States. Unfortunately, the media and those reporting on and or about cannabis have virtually no knowledge of the subject. You can tell that a quick Google search is what they did in order to write the articles they're producing as well as voice the opinions they are so naively putting out.

    Outlets across the UK have been talking about the high levels of THC compared to the low levels of CBD in cannabis. Their specific point is that one causes someone to get high being THC and the other CBD balances the effects of THC. This is only a partial truth. In actuality, something known as the Entourage effect occurs when the two are present together. This has to do with a wide cannabinoid profile. This means not just THC or CBD but also CBG, CBN, THCa, THCv, and many others.

    The negligence of the media is not their fault. They simply are misinformed. Research conducted in Israel provides some of the most accurate up-to-date information about cannabis currently found anywhere on the planet. Studies and research in the United States of America are faulted by the hand of private investors, corporations, and government officials. Cannabis is being considered and called a threat across the UK with reports of extremely potent new strains hitting the streets. These strains aren't new.

    They're only new to those reporting about them. Strains like Gorilla Glue, Old School Road Kill Skunk, OG Kush and many others have been around for several decades. This once again Shows that the media is only reporting off of Google reports they read. Unfortunately, they don't appear to be reading current facts. Cannabis is not the dangerous street drug they're making it out to be. In fact, cannabis is an all-natural plant that holds many different medical attributes. This plant has zero deaths linked directly to it ever.

    A valid point to remember is regulation promotes safety and consistency. A street dealer or grower nine times out of ten doesn't care about the quality of what they produced as long as it produces a lot of it and it looks and smells good. There's an abundance of additives that growers can pump into their plants that many people aren't aware of. This will change the taste, yield, aroma, and potency. When not done properly consumers can experience headaches, nausea, and dizziness amongst other symptoms.

    BHO or butane honey oil which is a form of cannabis concentrates can also be dangerous when not produced correctly. For example, someone blasting BHO through PVC tubes is putting the health of consumers at risk. Legalization helps implement regulation. Regulation helps produce funding and in return creates a safer environment. Regulation could prevent factors such as harmful chemical additions to plants as well as oversee the manufacturing of concentrates to ensure consumer and patient safety. Cannabis legalization is an issue that needs to be addressed in the UK. With the rest of the world moving forward with cannabis legalization it seems it's time for those who are falling behind to catch up.

  • Deathstar the Cannabis Strain

    Deathstar won't have you feeling like a Jedi but will leave you looking like a red eye. This potent powerful hybrid strain is an Indica dominant one. Though Deathstar is Indica dominant it shares Sativa effects from its lineage. The combination of Sour Diesel and Sensi Star come together to create the legendary strain known by the name of Deathstar.

    The Deathstar strain of cannabis is oftentimes a go-to for patients looking for relief from chronic pain, stress, depression, and anxiety. Due to the heavy Indica characteristics it also comes in handy for many people who suffer from insomnia and nausea. These are only a handful of the medicinal attributes this incredible strain offers. The cannabis plant itself with its many different strains holds a potential plethora of benefits for you. Deathstar might not destroy worlds but it will destroy the moisture in your mouth. Make sure you have something to drink on hand to cure cotton face.

    Deathstar makes a great strain for a newbie or beginner grower. Considered easy to grow with a large yield Deathstar will flower in an average of 7 to 10 weeks producing as much as six ounces per square foot. When flowered to perfection you can expect a potent pungent smell with skunky undertones. An earthy diesel like flavor will tantalize your taste buds while creating a party in your mouth.
