Ebony Costain is Changing the Way You Buy Cannabis

While the marijuana legalization battle continues to brew in Federal courts, innovative cannabis startups have begun to crop up. From cannabis-infused household products to mac 'n cheese, cannabis seems to be everywhere. Well, almost. It is only legal for people over the age of 21 in a handful of states like Colorado and Maine. States like these have become breeding grounds for cannabis entrepreneurs racing to become a leader in the new, burgeoning industry. However,…

Canadian Military Trying to Decide How to Handle Marijuana Legalization

The military is currently wrestling with the implications of legalization, Canada’s top general says – including time restrictions on using the drug before going on duty. “We’re going to try to be smart about it,” chief of defence staff Gen. Jonathan Vance said on Monday. “But in the end, this is dangerous duty, this is serious duty for the country, and we don’t want people doing it stoned.” Vance’s comments came during an appearance before…

Freeze Drying rosin....Can it be done?

My wife and I do a lot of pickling/freezing our garden crops each year and I'm thinking about investing in a freeze dryer ($$$$) to extend our ability to store our harvest through the winter.

I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with freeze dryers and also wondering about the concept of using one to freeze dry some very sappy rosin to see if I can get it to sugar or crystallize.

What do you think?

Best brand of 510 thread vape pen battery?

I have been vaping for about a year now, using the standard vape pen that you can find in just about any headshop. I'm not sure of the brand but it's a plain white 510 thread battery with no buttons or switches of any kind. Just twist your cartridge into place and begin breathing in. I enjoy their simplicity, but they are terrible when it comes to durability, as I have been through several and treat them as basically disposable.

MY QUESTION IS-- can anyone point me in the direction of an...

Cannabis news worldwide -- Judge tosses lawsuit challenging federal marijuana laws

Judge tosses lawsuit challenging federal marijuana laws

A judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit challenging federal laws criminalizing marijuana as unconstitutional, saying the five plaintiffs had failed to pursue changes in the drug's legal status by first going through the Drug Enforcement Administration.U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein did not address the plaintiffs claim that marijuana has medical benefits, but said the DEA has the authority to make that decision and not the courts.The plaintiffs included former NFL player Marvin Washington, the co-founder of a company that sells hemp-based sports products, Army veteran Jose Belen, who said the horrors of the Iraq War left him with post-traumatic stress disorder, and two young children who use marijuana to treat medical conditions.Michael Hiller, lead attorney for the plaintiffs, said they would appeal the decision."Resigning the plaintiffs to the petitioning administrative process is tantamount to a death sentence for …

Kief Grinder?

Hello all,
I am looking for a kief grinder, not a herb grinder that has a kief catcher, but a small palm sized grinder that is made to make kief.
Everything I have seen (tumblers, sifters, etc...) are for huge amounts, I only need to make small amounts.
Does a company make anything like this?

Thank you

Pot Parties: How Legalized Weed is Fueling New Kinds of Fun

Nightlife has long been synonymous with alcohol – but party planners can’t assume any booze-friendly event will work as well with cannabis. Coco Ono, wearing only hot pants and pot-leaf pasties, prepared an overstuffed and dripping peanut butter sandwich and suggestively ate it on stage. In front of a less supportive crowd, her cabaret performance would risk being unwatchable. But on this night, the crowd – and almost everyone on stage – was high. The…

Cannabis news worldwide -- 5 facts about cannabis laws in Germany

5 facts about cannabis laws in Germany

Germany's drug laws have evolved over the past 30 years, with punishments becoming more severe, and, paradoxically, the definition of "drug offender" becoming more pliable.The private consumption of cannabis, for example, is commonly known to be relatively relaxed. A police officer stops someone on the street for smoking a joint, and — as many people during lazy summer months can confirm — it will probably be taken away without further repercussions.However, the law clearly prohibits cannabis with few exceptions. So what does it say?Here’s a look at the status of cannabis in German law and politics in five key points.1. Cannabis is illegalGermany's Narcotics Act classifies cannabis as an Appendix III drug: neither too dangerous to market, nor too dangerous to prescribe. LSD and heroin fall, by contrast, under Appendix I — not to be distributed for any reason, while Appendix II narcotics, such as cocaine, may not be prescribed.Adv…

Forbes Senator Calls Out Big Pharma for Opposing Legal Marijuana

A prominent Democratic U.S. senator is slamming pharmaceutical companies for opposing marijuana legalization.

Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said. "It's not the same thing. It's not as highly addictive as opioids are." "On the federal level, we really need to say it is a legal drug you…

Cannabis to become legal? Weed bill set for UK parliament this week

The UK parliament will debate a proposal to partially legalize cannabis this week, as campaigns in favor of using the drug for medicinal purposes gather momentum.

On Friday, politicians will revisit the issue in the first debate over the introduction of a right for sick people to use the cannabinoid drugs.
The second reading of the Legalisation of Cannabis (Medicinal Purposes) Bill will take place after it first appeared before MPs in October 2017. The bill proposes to “allow the production, supply, possession and use of cannabis and cannabis resin for medicinal purposes; and for connected purposes.”

Boy With Epilepsy Denied Medical Cannabis in the UK

Epilepsy doesn't have an age requirement. However, in the United Kingdom, there sure is an age requirement for treatment.According to The Guardian, a six-year-old boy with a rare form of epilepsy—who suffers from up to 30 seizures a day—was denied cannabis oil for medicinal purposes.Why? No one is allowed cannabis oil, says a statement by the Home Office, a ministerial department in the UK's federal government. The agency stressed the drug could not be prescribed in good conscience to citizens. The government does not recognize cannabis as a legitimate medical treatment, and so, it continues to be regulated like a street drug.The child's mother, Hannah Deacon, stressed that the dosage was minimal. While being treated in the Netherlands, doctors prescribed her son cannabis medication. Just three drops of cannabis oil were enough to help her son significantly reduce epileptic seizures. In fact, her son once went 24 whole day…
