Women and Marijuana, What Role do they Play

She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it.) Lewis Carrol “Alice in Wonderland”


What Role do Women Play in the World of Marijuana

When you think of drug use you rarely consider who it is behind the seens. For 100’s of years women have played a part in the marijuana industry.

Women have been a part of the marijuana industry as anyone. Women are not thought of in a lot of regards. As we all know, women are a huge part of the Eco system and I’m going to introduce you to some of the women behind marijuana and the impact they have had threw out time.

Together we have more power. As the cannabis industry grows on a national and global scale, women have the opportunity to build a new American industry from inception and redefine the workplace to create environments in which we can flourish and define our own destiny, and cultivate the next generation of industry leaders.

In 2018, The Stoner Babe’s Coloring Book became a cult classic almost overnight, and cannabis-centric, women-led entertainment, like Comedy Central’s Broad City and Olivia Milch’s 2018 Netflix movie Dude, have never been more popular.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, cannabis-loving women writers are publishing more books than ever about women and weed, including Feminist Weed Farmer by Madrone Stewart and Tokin’ .

Among these writers are also seven other women who In the past wrote their thoughts about cannabis.

Hildebrand von Bingen

Hildegrad von Binger 1098-1179

Hildegrad von Bingen may have been the most awesome nun you’ve never heard of. Supposedly experiencing visions since childhood. She began pursuing a religious life at the age of 15. She became the first nun in recorded history to write about consuming cannabis.

In Physica, the German Abbess, writer, composer, and visionary mystic writer about the medical benefits of cannabis, citing the plant as an effective pain reliever for headaches and poulitice to treat wounds.

She also wrote about prophetic and apocalyptic ideas on topics such as church, redemption, and relationship between God and humanity, plus dozens of lyric poems and two treatises on medicine and natural history.

Hildegrad von Binger was not declared a saint until 2012, but a biographer proclaimed her a saint and miracles were supposedly reported during her life and at her grave.



Harriet Martineau 1802-1876

An ancestor of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Harriet Martineau embraced atheism at a time when most English folks didn’t, and she was an active member of abolitionist movement when it was unpopular.

Martineau helped found the beloved genre of “The School Story”, when she published the Cofton Boys in 1841, and she pioneered “Back to the Land” journalism with her writings about her garden in England’s Lake District.

As a woman who spent the majority of her life breaking barriers and fighting for Social and economic justice, it’s no wonder Martineau was cool with Cannabis, most notably in her memoir Eastern Life Present and Past, in which she writes an account of enjoying cannabis in a harem during her traverse in the Middle East.

Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott 1832-1888

Louisa May Alcott, was, as you probably already know, the author of “Little Women” as well as the sequels, “Little Men”, and . But Louisa May Alcott also wrote some pretty incredible short stories about cannabis as well. “Perilous Play” tells the tale of two would be lovers getting lifted and lost in a boat, and then inexplicably ended up engaged.

In the story, one character explains the effects to another: “A heavenly steadiness comes over one in which they move as if on air, everything is calm and lovely to them, no pain, no care, no fear of anything, Ann’s while it lasts one feels like an angel half asleep”. Even better, the story ends with: Heaven bless Hashish, if its dreams end like this!”

And like A lot of cannabis consumers, it seems Alcott might have experienced one or two unfortunate freak outs while high. In “A Modern Mephistopheles, ” Alcott heroine takes an infused candy and fibds that “an inward excitement possessed her, a wild desire to sing her very heart out came over her , and a strange chill which she thought a vague presentiment of coming ill crept through her blood. ”


Alice B. Toklas 1877-1967

While we can’t say for certain itf Alice B. Toklas maintained her own personal stash, it’s safe to say she endorsed cannabis. She published The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook in 1954, eight years after the death of her lifelong partner, writer Gertrude Stein. She included a now-infamous recipe for a Moroccan cannabis confection made with dried fruit, nuts, and spices.

Although Toklas is widely credited with creating the dish, the recipe was reportedly contributed to her cookbook by one of her many creative friends, writer and avant-garde artist, Brion Gysin. (Apparently, Toklas kicked it with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso on a regular basis as well.)

In an interview on Pacifica Radio in 1963, Toklas said she included the recipe in her cookbook without realizing that cannabis was the highlight of the dish. But her description of the infused dessert tells another story: “This is the food of paradise. Euphoria and brilliant storms of laughter; ecstatic reveries and extensions of one’s personality on several simultaneous planes are to be complacently expected.”

American publishers wouldn’t include the controversial recipe in the book’s first edition, but a second edition containing a hashish fudge recipe was published in the US in the early 1960s. The dish was instantly embraced by hippie culture and referenced in the 1968 film, I Love You Alice B. Toklas.



Isak Dinesen 1885-1962

The Danish writer who penned the classic memoir-turned-Hollywood film Out of Africa (1985) was born Karen Blixen, but she’s more widely known by her pen name, Isak Dinesen. Dinesen’s finely crafted short stories, set in the past and infused with gothic supernaturalism, incorporate the themes of eros and dreams.

In Out of Africa, Dinesen wistfully recalls her years owning and operating a coffee plantation in Kenya, until mismanagement, drought, and the falling price of coffee forced her to return to Denmark. According to a book on her life, Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller, Dinesen’s plantation was just one of the places where the writer and her companions “liked to experiment with the sensations hashish, opium, or miraa could give them.”

She also wrote numerous essays and a novel, The Angelic Avengers, under the pseudonym Pierre Andrézel. She apparently hung out with Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, Timothy Leary, and Aldous Huxley for a while too.

In a letter to her mother in 1924, she wrote: “The greater part of humanity needs excitement, some slight intoxication, pleasure, and danger too. I think that if it were in my power to do anything at all for humanity, I myself would like to amuse theml.”

Ok, so far there are 5 women who wrote or had something to do with marijuana. I hope I’m not boring you with this. Being a mam I’m finding all my research on this subject very fascinating. It appears that women had quite a bit to do with the business of marijuana. This is just a little bit of womens involvement in the cannabis world.

Maya Angelou 1928-2014

As an iconic poet dancer, actor, civil rights activist , and an award winning author of “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” Maya Angelou wasn’t known for keeping her opinion to herself including her thoughts on cannabis.

The celebrated novelest wrote extensively about her relationship with cannabis in her 2nd autobiography, “Gather Together in My Name. ” While detailing her first time taking cannabis at a dinner party, Angelou recalls, “The food was the best I’d ever tasted. every morsel was an experience of sheer delight . I lost myself in the haze of sensuel pleasure, pleasure, enjoying not only the tastes but feel of the food in my mouth, the smells and the sound of my jaws chewing.

The writer reportedly enjoyed the plants many benefits in a variety of ways, whether having dinner with her mother or taking a long walk.

Susan Sontag 1933-2004

An intellectual, a mother, and sexually progressive woman who competed with men for bylines in rhe 1960’s. Susan Sontag challenged all kinds of traditional norms. The Harvard Alumni had a private relationship with renowed photographer Annie Leibovitz for a time, and won the National Book Award in 2000 for her novel “In America”.

Sontag also published the play “Alice In Bed” as well as several non-fiction works like “Illness as a Metaphor” and “Where the Stress Falls” before passing away in 2004. On top of that, she reported on many of the issues and conflicts that plaguex her generation, such as the Vietnam War, the AIDS epidemic, and the Bosnian War.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the author, journalist, playwright, and native New Yorker was also pro-cannabis. In an interview with High Times, Sontag said: “I think marijuana is much better than liquor. I think a society which is addicted to a very destructive and unhealthy drug—namely alcohol—certainly has no right to complain or be sanctimonious or censor the use of a drug which is much less harm industry.

Conclusion

The Cannabis Industry is Exploding

It appears that the U.S. Government is starting to take a closer look into the legalization of cannabis and its health benefits. Ten years ago the U.S. Government had been getting false information about cannabis and its health benefits. Since the 29 States have legalized the use of marijuana medical and recreational it has opened a flood gate for jobs around the United States such as farming, merchants, as well as the medical field. The revenue aspects in the cannabis industry are off the charts. At the present time the cannabis industry is at $10.8 Billion annually and it is going to continue keep to rising.

According to a 2019 Cannabis Harvest projection says that California has to many marijuana farms and if something isn’t done about it that it will devastate the industry.

Vessel Logistics, a San Francisco based cannabis distribution company, discovered that more than 1,142 acres of cannabis farms hold state permits. If, you were to do the math it adds up to about 9 million pounds of crops every year. Now that is a lot of pot smoking. Even if, that number were cut in half California would still have an over supply which is unavoidable.

California isn’t the only state with over production of the tasty bud plant. It seems that Oregon growers are producing two times what the market can support and that there is a six years supply of weed sitting on Shelves and farms.

Over production is just one of the problems that California is facing. Temporary licensing is becoming a major problem and could send growers back into the black market unless the Legislature passes a law to that will push back the dead line for an extension. Also, legal statuses for cannabis cultivation and sales have become a messy business as well.

As if that wasn’t enough problems, city and county government are also restricting retail and delivery businesses within their jurisdiction. As I understand it, when medical marijuana became legal in some States the federal government left it up to the states to outline their own amendments and enforce any laws prudent to that particular state. This was the federal government’s way of giving themselves time to Chang their minds.

elves time to make up their own minds about the legalization of marijuana. Which they’re coming close to making up their minds in favor of marijuana because they are now realizing the financial explosion associated with marijuana, and that marijuana has many health benefits. And now they want their piece of the pie too. Everybody is cashing in.

Job Market

The cannabis industry has opened up a huge job market all over California. So this is just one more of the benefits surounding the cannabis industry. From what i have seen in my research there are a lot of cannabis based jobs out there and they’re are some pretty good jobs that pay very well. There are jobs such as financial controller, teimer/packager, bud tender, dispensary associated, and the list goes on.

Since the legalization of cannabis in 29 States the job market has begun to flourish in California. I don’t know anyone out there who wants to work in the cannabis business or not, but if you do, then your only a search and a mouse click away. I’ll tell you, if your looking for a job, may I suggest you turn your attention toward the cannabis work force. What’s the worst that could happen? They could say “NO”. In that case you won’t be any worse off. But I have a good feeling about this. The beauty of this is that you have a lot to choose from. You don’t have to be a pot smoker to work in the cannabis industry, and there are a lot of career oriented businesses.

Cannabis Health Benefits

Cree c

Is Cannabis Healthy for You?

There has been a lot of controversy in regards to whether or not cannabis has health benefits. There are now 29 States that have legalized the use of marijuana, either for medical use or recreational use, in some cases both.

Upon my own personal research I’ve discovered that there are quit a bit of proven health benefits that marijuana contributes to.

The Food and Drud Administration (FDA) still refuses to recognize marijuana as a use for medical reasons. However CBD (Cannabidoil) has been recognized by the FDA to have properties that are beneficial to people with epilepsy, social anxiety, post traumatic  stress disorder just to name a few.

CBD has no psychoactive effects but is beneficial in certain types of ailments as I have previously outlined. I’m also going to outline some other health benefits that marijuana has for those that suffer from other ailments other than what I’ve already outlined.

Cancer

Cannabis is known to slow or even stop regenerating cancer cells. Also, marijuana helps with nausea associated with chemo therapy.  I remember my aunt when she went threw chemo therapy, let me tell you, it wasn’t a pretty sight when she would come home after her dose of chemo. My cousins and I finally talked her into smoking some weed and it did seem to have a relaxing effect on her and she didn’t have the urge to puke as a result.

Chronic Pain

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicines said that there was  definite evidence that cannabis or cannabinoid, found in the marijuana plant, can be an effective treatment for chronic pain. Commonly, that is by far the primary reason people use medical marijuana.

So if your in chronic pain, I can only suggest smoking a joint or taking a couple hits off your bong or pipe. I’m sure it will make you feel much better. It does for me, who knows it just help with other shit that may be ailing you. Kind of like killing two birds with one toke, lol.

Alcohol and Drug Addiction

It’s been revealed that using marijuana may help people with alcohol or opioid addiction. So with that being said, I’m afraid that I would have to strongly disagree with that first sentence. In my personal opinion I would have to say that marijuana does not help when it comes to alcoholism or other drug use. It’s been said that marijuana is a gate way drug, Bullshit! IF your an alcoholic then there is no amount of marijuana that is going to diswade you from drinking. A person has to want to quit drinking. And there is no way you can substitute one for the other. Of course that’s only my opinion. And if you can then my hat is off to you.

Social Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

CBD (Cannabidoil) has  recently grown in popularity as being the cannabis chemical that aids in the therapy for Social Anxiety and Stress disorder. CBD has several mechanisms of action including CB1- acting in the mind and CB2- acting in the body receptors found in the peripheral organs and skin.

Lung Capasity

So I read that marijuana can be helpful with lung capasity. This has nothing to to do with any of the chemicals in the marijuana plant itself. The fact that when smoking marijuana and you breath in the smoke deeply into your lungs and hold it for a period of time helps to improve lung capacity. I’ll call it sreching exercise for your lungs. Unless your a tabacco smoker, then you can toss lung capacity out the window. There are no documented case’s, that I have ever heard of, to prove that marijuana causes lung cancer. So you none tabacco smokers, I say exercise that lung capasity and do some stretching exercises.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is caused by pressure on the optic nerve which impaired vision and possible blindness if not treated. Back when marijuana was being considered for medical use Glaucoma was one of the primary reasons for that. The use of marijuana is known to relive the pressure on the optic nerve.

Because customary methods of treating Glaucoma, such as laser surgery, eye drops, etc. had unacceptable results. Marijuana became an alternative to conventional treatment. So it is marijuana to the rescue.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a condition that effects the joints and surrounding tissue. There are several types of arthritis. Arthritis is known to be painful and makes everyday tasks very difficult to manipulate.

As an alternative to conventional treatment marijuana is known to relieve pain and reduce inflammation caused by arthritis.

Arthritis usually happens in people 65 and older. Arthritis doesn’t discriminate, and anyone no matter their age can have arthritis.

Summery

So, as you can see, cannabis has many benefits to one’s health. Anywhere from psyco to muscular disorders. As scientists continue to study the chemicals in cannabis as to the health benefits are discovering that there are many health benefits associated with the marijuana plant.

THC’s chemical structure is similar to the endocannabinoid anandamide which transmits chemical messages between nerve cells. The THC binds with cannabinoid receptors CB1 like a key in a lock, forcing the

As you can see, marijuana has many health benefits and this article only scratches the surface. Marijuana has been used for 1000’s of years, 3000 to be more precise, for medical use. Also, marijuana was legal until 1937 when the government stepped in and made marijuana illegals. This I don’t understand when the use of alcohol is much more deadly.

I hope you got something out of this article. Please comment or leave a message if there is any way I can help with your cannabis needs. Just remember, it’s always 420 somewhere.

Bongs

Today I want to talk about bongs. I want to talk about all kinds of different bongs. I would have to say that out of all the ways there are to smoke marijuana, the bong in my opinion is the best to get stoned with. I’ve always gotten a much much better high from smoking from a bong.

threw out my life I have had a lot of bongs. I’ve seen bongs come and go. Back In the day when I was younger, much younger I worked down in Texas on the Kings Ranch in search for oil and natural gas. Boy was that a fun job. We had to use helicopters to get out to where the job was on the ranch because it had rained down there for two weeks straight. The pilots were super cool and would let us smoke weed while in flight. Talk about being high. Hell I’ve smoked a joint at 35,000 ft. going threw clouds and shit.

Of course that’s a lot of what we did when I was on that crew down there. Every night was a Saterday night. We would get up before the sun and get back to our motel after the sun went down and we would party. Then get up and do it again.

I use to have this really cool bong that I carried with me while was out of town working. That bong went everywhere with me. The bong was a ceramic bust of a wizard smoking a pipe. The pipe the wizard smoked was the bowl you put the weed in, it stood about 10″ tall but after trying to force a cube of ice into the mouth piece I broke the top off the bong and had to take a hacksaw and cut off about 2″ off the top making it an 8″ tall bong.

Anyway I really loved that bong. You see back in thoughs days Texas didn’t have head shops but Arizona did and I had given a friend of mine 20 bucks who was going home to Arizona for a few days during our time off from searching for oil and natural gas to get me that particular bong.

I had known someone else that had the same exact bong and I wanted one. Back then we didn’t have the internet to order things we wanted so we had to choose different methods of getting thing that were hard to get.

A few days later when we were all back to work my friend came threw with my brand new wizard bust bong. I was so proud of that bong and I wouldn’t smoke weed any other way except that bong. Although I never took it out to the field with me so I had to smoke joints instead. Which is another good way to smoke weed.

I can’t remember how that bong got away from me but I lost it. I hung on to that bong for a number of years before I lost it. Since then bongs have come and gone. Some I’ve made myself others I acquired in other ways.

Today bongs are more sophisticated with all kinds of chambers, others with little slits in the water chamber in order to cause a type of Wirral pool effect. I think that was an attempt to get an even mix of smoke and air. Nonetheless, it worked very well and it was cool to watch the water turn into a vortex as you sucked in the smoke air mixture.

There are still bongs that are made the traditional way. Nothing fancy but still effective just the same. Water at the bottom and a straight tube up to the mouth and into the lungs. Now you can get bongs with multiple water chambers and smoke chambers, there are tall bongs, short bongs, bongs that have dragons on them, any kind of bong you could imagine or think up, it’s out there.

Of course, we all know what the main purpose of a bong aside from the obvious is to cool the smoke in order to get a much smoother bong hit and also get more smoke in the lungs so you can get the full effect of your favorite cannabis strain.

What Chemicals are in Marijuana & Byproducts

This according to The Mayo Clinic in its Aug. 25, 2006 article “Marijuana as Medicine: Concider the Pros & Cons”.

‘Marijuana contains at least 60 chemicals called cannabinoids. Researchers are evaluating how effective some of these cannabinoid might be in controlling symptoms of certain conditions, for example:

  • THC. An abbreviation for Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol-cannabinol. THC is the main component responsible for marijuana’s mind- altering effects. It also may help treat signs and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting that are associated with a number of medical conditions.
  • Cannabinol and cannabidiol. These compounds have some of the properties of THC, but cause less psychoactive effects — the high. …
  • Also, marijuana smoke contains 50 percent to 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke and has the potential to cause cancer of the lungs and respiratory tract. Marijuana smoke is commonly inhaled deeper and held longer than is tobacco smoke, increasing the lungs’ exposure to carcinogens.”

Ok, I have to say that as many years as I have been smoking weed and all the people I know that also smoke weed, I have never known or heard of anyone getting cancer from smoking marijuana unlike tabacco. You see, marijuana is sold in its natural form- with no added chemicals-pro, on the other hand, tabacco is full of all kinds of man made chemicals that people wouldn’t normally take and in my personal opinion causes cancer over all-con. I would say at best from personal experience that smoking marijuana is the cause of shortness of breath.

I’m no doctor and I can tell you this, I can’t take a hit off of a joint or a bong or whatever without coughing my ass off. Been doing it for as long as I’ve been smoking weed, and I see other people who don’t caugh at all. But cancer, very slim chance compared to tobacco. Because if that we’re the case, then why hasn’t the Surgeon General put warning lable on the packaging of marijuana? I have never seen a warning lable on my packageing when i go to the dispensery to buy weed. However I do see it on a pack of cigarettes and the cigars I smoke (Warning: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.) That is what is written on a pack of cigars that I  smoke.

The Institute of medicine published in its Mar. 1999 report titled “Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Sience Base”.

“The most recent review of the constituents of marijuana lists 66 cannabinoids. But that does not mean there are 66 different cannabinoid effects or interactions. Most of the cannabinoids are closely related and they fall into only 10 groups of closely related cannabinoids, many of which differ by only a single chemical moiety and might be midpoints along biochemical pathways — that is, degradation products, precursors, or byproducts.

Now, here we have 66 marijuana cannabinoid. What I’m understanding here is that cannabis is just like any other plant that is a positive to our health one way or another. Because marijuana was illegal at one time and still is in some States and other countries, its gotten a bad rap. Fact of the matter marijuana has just as many attributes and has a positive contribution to our health in many ways.

Some people use cannabis for its THC properties because they enjoy the high they get from it or that it helps in some capacity of health benifits. As with CBD the health benefits are different such as aiding to improve anxiety and stress among other health benefits without the affects that THC provides.

Cannabinoid Identified in Marijuana

I’m going to break it down as we move down this list of different cannabis chemicals. The first chemical identified on this list is:

  • 9_THC (Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabis) there are 9 known variants in this group. The next chemical in this list is vary closely related to the first:
  • 8_THC (Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabis) there are 2 known variants in this group.

In regaurds to these first 2 chemicals are what I believe made marijuana famous due to the fact that THC is the chemical that gives you that intoxicating feeling you get when smoking or eating cannabis products.

  • CBC (Cannabichromene) there are 5 known variants in this group. This chemical was discovered over 50 years ago. CBC is considered one of the “big six” cannabinoid prominent in medical research. It doesn’t get as much attention, but CBC’s benifits are extremely promising. CBC has the same origins as both THC and CBD do in that they all stem from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA).
  • CBL (Cannabicyclol) there are 3 known variants.Cannabicyclol, also called CBL, is one of the least known and studied cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Although it is commonly found in many varieties, in particular those with a higher content of CBC (Cannabichromene), the amount of CBL produced in trichomes is always very low, so it doesn’t usually receive the attention given to other, more plentiful compounds of the plant with a much more noticeable presence, such as THC, CBD or CBN.

  • CBD (Cannabinoil)  there are 7 known varents in this group. CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound – meaning it won’t alter a person’s mental state – that can come from two different cannabis plants: The hemp plant (with less than 0.3 percent THC present) or marijuana plant (where there’s much more psychoactive THC). CBD products tend to be derived from hemp
  •  CBE (Cannabielsoin) there are 5 varients in this group. That’s just to name a few of the chemicals in the cannabis plant. There are more but there isn’t much to go by as far as research is concerned.

It’s kind of hard to believe that as long as the marijuana plant has been in our lives that there very little known about this very popular plant.

Final Thought

I hope that this blog is helpful to better understand this powerful little plant that we are just starting to try and understand. More so now that more than half of the States have made marijuana legal and we’re beginning to try and get better understanding about. I’m going to do my best to keep everyone up to date on our little plant in every way.

Leave a comment with up date that you know about and I’ll pass on that news. Stay mellow

CBD Oil Anxiety and Stress

“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two day’s at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of it’s sorrow, it empties today of it’s strength”.                              Corrine Ten Boom

CBS OIL ANXIETY & STRESS

CBD has become one of the most sought after cannabis products on the market today. CBS is an all natural health supplement with antianxiety properties, that’s right, CBS is now known to help with anxiety and depression.

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)—despite its name—is a specific type of anxiety disorder. The hallmark feature of GAD is persistent, excessive, and intrusive worry.

Women are about twice as likely to develop GAD in their lifetime as men. Though the median age of onset is 30 years, later than that of other anxiety disorders, GAD can occur at any point in the life cycle.

Studies have also shown that first degree relatives of someone with GAD are more likely to develop mood and anxiety disorders, in general, with a specific increased risk for developing GAD. First degree relatives would include family members most closely related to you, such as a parent, sibling, or your child.

Finally, women are more prone to anxiety disorders in general. In fact, statistics from the ADAA show that women are actually twice as likely to be impacted by generalized anxiety disorder. Although the condition typically begins around 30 years old, many of those who are diagnosed are found to have been struggling with symptoms for years before seeing a professional and being properly diagnosed. GAD comes on gradually, with the greatest risk between childhood and middle age.

Brain Structure

The limbic system is a collection of brain structures that, among other functions, is involved in the regulation of many of our basic emotional reactions. Although it is generally under the control of the “thinking” part of our brain, it can respond to stimuli on its own as well.

The Benifits of CBD

Cannabidiol is a compound derived from cannabis plants. It may help people with anxiety reduce their symptoms with few or no side effects.

CBD oil is rich in chemicals called cannabinoid. I know, it’s kind of hard to pronounce. Anyway, the cannabinoid binds to specialized receptors in the brain. The Best known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, talk about a hard to pronounce word, which the short of it is (THC), which causes the effect people feel after taking marijuana either by smoking it or ingesting the THX based product orally.

However, THC is just one of many cannabidoils. CBD binds to the receptors but does not produce the same effect as THC. There are many benefits to the health that range from slowing the growth of cancer to improving mental health.

or perhaps some of you may want to put some cannabutter on your toast in the morning. This should surely relieve any ANXIETY concerning the days up coming events. That is if one chooses this method for treating anxiety. Self medication to say the least. Of course, you would have to weigh the process it would take to make this buttery treat. It’s great if you have plenty of time on your hands. Frankly I would much rather smoke a joint or take a couple of hit off my bong. Nonetheless, if this is your thing then I say knock yourself out.

CannaButter Crok-Pot Method

Crock-Pot CannaButter Recipe in just 10 Easy Steps

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups (4 sticks) of unsalted butter (DO NOT use margarine as a substitute!)
  • 8 Cups water
  • 3 Ounces Marijuana (trim, bud, or keif)

Equipment:

Time: 6 hours

Directions:

  1. First, start by adding 8 cups of water to the crock pot, cover, and let the water heat for 1 hour.
  2. Then add 3 ounces of marijuana (trim, bud, or keif) and let heat for another hour.
  3. Melt 2 cups (4 sticks) of butter in the crock pot on low.
  4. Keep crock pot on low for 4 hours to let the cannabis combine with the lipids from the butter.
  5. Now that the CannaButter has had plenty of time to incorporate with the weed place the cheese cloth over a heat-proof bowl and pour the liquid through the cheese cloth to strain out the plant material. Or place all of the weed
  6. Squeeze to extract as much of the CannaButter/water solution as possible.
  7. Cover the bowl with plastic or aluminum foil and put into the fridge overnight.
  8. You will have a solid layer of marijuana CannaButter on the top of the murky green/gray water.
  9. Use a knife to cut in between the bowl and the hardened CannaButter, you will have one solid chunk of incredible CannaButter. Then toss water.  (DO NOT USE the leftover water, it’s just the waste of chlorophyll).
  10. Place the cannabis CannaButter in air tight containers and place in the freezer (This keeps the marijuana CannaButter fresh and potent).

*Important Tips:

  1. Don’t grind any of the marijuana. This breaks down too much of the plant matter and will lead to a chlorophyll taste
  2. Don’t decarboxylate.“Decarboxylation” is a complex word to describe heating herb to cannabinoid acids into a form that is readily usable by the body. Cannabinoids are chemicals found in the cannabis plant that bind to cells in the body to produce effects. Sometimes decarboxylation is called “activating” or “decarbing.” I have seen many weed-CannaButter recipes that recommend baking the herb in the oven to decarb. It is not necessary to decarb using this recipe because you are heating up the marijuana and decarbing using the crock-pot

 

Final Thought: 

I hope that this article is helpful to those of you who suffer with ANXIETY and stress. I have a clear understanding of what it is like to have ANXIETY since I live with one that from time to time suffers an ANXIETY attack now and then. So with that being said, just remember don’t not to panic, instead just smoke a joint ant you will find yourself in a much more calmer light.

THE BEST CANNABIS ACCESSOIES

As I’ve said before there are a wide variety of accessories for smoking your favorite weed. Since marijuana has been legalized there are more and more people enjoying their 420 happy hour. People who are trying to find the best cannabis accessories, better ways of getting stoned. And I can tell you that there are a lot of different ways people can get stoned.
Anything from rolling papers, bongs, and vaporizer. Along with these products are other accessories. Back In the 70s it was joints and 5′ bongs. In this article I’ll be discussing a few of the best cannabis accessories that those of us use today.3

Rolling Papers & Blunt Wraps

For as long as I can remember rolling papers, in my opinion, have been the most convenient way to smoke weed. The reason for this is that rolling papers were, and still are, easy to conceal and carry. They were great on the go because all you would have to do is pull out your rolling papers out and sprinkle your favorite cannabis in one and roll it up. All that’s left to do now is lite it up and get stoned to the bone.

The history of the Rolling Paper according rollingpaperdepot.com the earliest company to produce rolling papers was a company by the name Pay-pay which was formed in Spain in 1703. But it is said that rolling paper had really began in 1532. It was believed that rolling papers began in France. Realistically rolling papers began in Spain by a company called RizLa+ Rolling Papers. The company produced rolling papers up until 1978 when the company was sold by the Lacroix family to Fernand Painblanc.

Between 1532 until now there have been other rolling paper company’s as well. Such as Job Brand which makes their rolling papers with rice, Zig Zag rolling papers and they use wood and flax to make their rolling, and there is RizLa+ and they use rice to make their rolling papers. There are many other rolling paper brands as well. Brands like Elements, Butler, and Raw just to name a few.

Blunts came along later on. In case, you don’t know what a blunt is: it’s a cigar that has had the tobacco removed from the inside and what your left with is the outer part of the cigar known as a “wrap”. You take the wrap and put your favorite cannabis into it and roll it up. All that’s left to do now is lite it up, take a few really nice tokes off of it and of course getting stoned to the bone.

Blunt Wraps often in a variety of different flavors such blue barry, and vanilla, just to name a couple.

Blunts also come as ready-made tobacco wraps with hundreds of flavors across numerous brands.

In the tobacco industry, a blunt is defined as a cigar that is wider than a cigarillo and not quite as wide as a Corona. A cigarillo that has been split and re-rolled with marijuana is called a blunt in cannabis culture.

Due to the tobacco content in the wrapper leaf, blunts carry with them the risks of tobacco use, including nicotine addiction. In addition to using cheap cigars and cigarillos to smoke cannabis, cigar wraps or “blunt wraps” are also used.

Water Pipes Known as Bongs

A bong (also water pipe, billy, bing or moof) is a filtration device generally used for smoking cannabis, tobacco, or other herbal substances.

In construction and function a bong is similar to a hookah, except smaller and especially more portable. A bong may be constructed from any air and water tight vessel by adding a bowl and stem apparatus (or slip) which guides air downward to below the water level whence it bubbles upward (bubbler) during use. To get fresh air into the bong and harvest the last remaining smoke, a hole known as the carburetor, carb, choke, bink, rush, short, kick hole, or simply hole, that is somewhere on the lower part of the bong above the water level, is first kept covered during the smoking process. Then opened to allow the smoke to be drawn up into your lungs. On a bong without such a hole the bowl and stem are removed to allow air from the hole that holds the stem.

Bongs have been in use by the Hmong, in Laos and Thailand, and all over Africa for centuries. One of the earliest recorded uses of the word in the West is in the McFarand Thai- English Dictionary, published in 1944 which describes one of the meanings of bong in the Thai language as, “A bamboo water pipe for smoking kancha, tree, hashish, or the hemp plant”.

Glass Pipes

Glass pipes are used by smokers who want a pure taste from their cannabis or tobacco. Because the glass is non-porous and non-combustible, it adds nothing to the smoke.

They are also prized for their artistic designs. Glass can be clown into truly fantastical shapes, and smokers often purchase designs that have a special meaning for them. Dragons, unicorns or serpents are common fantasy motifs. Mushrooms, animals, trees or flowers speak to naturalists. Beautiful colors, patterns or curved forms draw artistic smokers. If someone wanted the shapes, glass pipes could even be blown into complex gears or engineering designs

Glass pipes eliminate the need for the paper used to roll traditional cigarettes. They provide not only purer flavor, but also smoke that is free from whatever toxins burning paper, which is made from wood, brings to the smoking experience. They could be said to be healthier than conventional rolled smoking products.

Glass pipes are also great for germaphobes. Because the glass is non-porous, it has no cavities where bacteria could gain a foothold. It is also easy to clean.

So if you prefer to smoke your weed from a glass pipe I encourage you to check out what Smokea has in the way of all your smoking needs. https:23686463.kckb.st
