How to Make Your Own Cannabis Capsules

Cannabis capsules are an easy, discreet, and super effective way to medicate. Taking a pill blends more seamlessly into most people’s daily routine than smoking, vaporizing, or eating an edible. Making cannabis capsules at home is a simple way to ensure you’re ingesting clean medicine that’s created to suit your individual needs. A daily low-dose of cannabinoids can help ease a wide variety of ailments, and when you’re treating a chronic disorder it’s important to consistently flood your body with healing cannabinoids. There are two routes to take when making your own capsules — infused oil or decarboxylated dry cannabis flower. Some prefer to have an oil base because raw cannabis can be slightly harder for sensitive stomachs to digest. …

The Cannabis Shortage Plaguing German Pharmacies

At present, Germany is experiencing massive delays in the delivery of medical cannabis. The supply at most pharmacies is limited to three or four of the 16 available medical strains. More than 10 of Germany’s medically-approved strains originate from the Canadian medical cannabis program, but currently, only smaller stocks of Pedanios’ 18/1 are available — the other five Pedanios Strains are sold out. None of the five strains produced by Tweed are available in German pharmacies. Due to the lengthy import and export process, Canadian cannabis could return to the German market in September, at the earliest. Shortages from Canada are not the only problem, Dutch producer Bedrocan has not been able to deliver all of its six available medical …

Massachusetts High Court Rules On Work and Weed; Gov. Prepares to Sign Legalization Into Law

Massachusetts’ medical marijuana patients receive legal cover from state Supreme Court ruling as Gov. Charlie Baker prepares to sign legalization into law.

Poland Legalizes Medical Marijuana | Marijuana

Yesterday, President Duda signed Poland’s medical cannabis bill into law, making Poland the latest European Union member country to permit the use of medical marijuana.

This approval effectively paved the way to the office of President Andrzej Duda who signed the bill into law on July 20th. Pharmacists …

45% of Americans Say They Have Tried Marijuana

A poll conducted by the research-based consulting company Gallup finds that 45% of Americans say they have tried marijuana on at least one occasion. When Gallup presented the same question to Americans in 1969, only 4% of those surveyed said they had tried pot. Gallup’s study on “American’s consumption habits” is based on telephone interviews conducted on July 5-9 with a random sample of 1,021 adults. However, the results from the marijuana-related questions are based on responses from approximately 500 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. 12% of Americans Enjoy Marijuana Regularly When Gallup first explored “marijuana usage and experimentation” by Americans in 2013, they found that 7% of those …

The Activist on the Inside — MP Paul Flynn on U.K. Pot Reform

One of the most inspiring aspects of watching a country emerge from the bowels of prohibition is witnessing the advocates of cannabis rush to its defense. These outspoken reformers come in many shapes and sizes, including people from the “illicit” cannabis industry, patients who need marijuana, and even parents who are desperately trying to secure important medicine for their children. Possibly the most fascinating activists are the representatives of government who encourage people to challenge the status quo, despite the consequences. An 82-year-old Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom, Paul Flynn, is one of these outspoken individuals. Earlier this week, MP Flynn was supremely disappointed with the U.K. Conservative’s Drug Policy plan, and during the debate, he encouraged cannabis …

South America: Legal Pot Goes On Sale in Uruguay

Uruguay rolls out recreational marijuana sales! In 2013, the tiny South American country put the world on notice. They were done fighting the losing battle against recreational marijuana consumption and decided to try a novel approach – legalizing it. On Wednesday, the long-awaited national experiment was fired up and the sale of recreational marijuana began in earnest for residents of Uruguay. Legalized by the tiny South American country more than four years ago, the initial implementation has been agonizingly slow. Since announcing their historic marijuana reform policy, several other countries have jumped on the reform bandwagon. Adults over the age of age of 18 can register to buy their recreational cannabis that’s available at 16 pharmacies throughout Uruguay. Already permitted …

Know Your Medicine: CBDA | Marijuana

Cannabidiolic acid or CBDA is one of the non-intoxicating phytocannabinoids found in the raw unheated cannabis plant. CBGA, cannabigerolic acid, is the parent compound to both THCA and CBDA. As the cannabis flower matures, CBGA is converted to CBDA by the enzyme CBDA synthase, first discovered in 1996 by researchers in Japan. CBGA is also the parent compound to THCA, via the enzyme THCA synthase. Unfortunately, there is very little research on CBDA despite recent studies showing potent anti-inflammatory effects and anticancer potential. CBDA is a potent anti-inflammatory, working by selectively inhibiting an enzyme in our bodies called COX-2. This enzyme is triggered when you experience injury or infection, and it produces compounds called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins promote inflammation, and although …

Dosidos Marijuana Strain Review | Marijuana

Strain Overview The Scoop: If you bought stock in Dosidos a year ago, you struck gold. Thanks to the popularity of the Jungle Boyz and the strain’s massive bag appeal, Dosidos has become the darling of the boutique cannabis scene. But the Jungle Boyz are no longer the only farmers highlighting Dosidos — this Indica comes from Denver’s The Herbal Cure. The Result: A strain that typically tests into the mid-high 20% THC range, Dosidos is the heir apparent to the Forum Cut. One of if not the most photogenic strains out there, these nugs looks like they were soaked in kief and smeared with blueberry jam. Highly sought after, she’s the most popular girl in school. The Verdict: If weed …
