    This is why I try to keep tabs at this site. Does anyone remember the 9&10 news story about the young man selling chocolate and gifting flowers online out of Detroit. What's that follow up story I truly hope a happy one. No B.S. I just wish it could be transferred like a roadside veggie stand it would be the biggest job creation in History and a Dime on time if You ask Me

    Yup, 75 is too cool for the hard rooters. They will root eventually at 75, much quicker a little warmer. Also, if the room is cold you need warmer water. I read that a few years back and it holds true. Always noticed that my clones took longer to root in the winter when my rooms are cooler. Went a little warmer and they came back up to speed.

    Up the heat a few degrees if they are slow to grow roots. I went from 79 to 82 and my slower rooters caught right up.

    If you already grow your own, and you just want protection of a medical card, why not just pay the $40 to the state and keep your card? Are you just greedy and want someone to pay your way and give you an ounce a month? Will you be donating for meds outside of that ounce? Just seems like you want to take advantage, good luck finding a sucker!... Oops I mean caregiverūü§£

    We pay the piper because of the lobbyists that legally bribed the politicians to make it legal. Go around that and find out what they have dreamed up to keep their cash cow. If you keep in mind what the businesses pay to be able to grow and sell you realize why everyone doesn't get to sell. It all has to add up and make sense. It doesn't make any sense for one person to pay a huge amount to sell and another does it because they want to.

    Dude, can't you tell that English is their second language? Does it talk/write like any real American you have heard? It's important to be able to tell the difference. NEVER pay these types of ads any attention whether it comes in on your email, text, or a post. Nothing good will ever come from a SPAM like this. Asking them questions just gives them hope they found someone to rip off.

    I have a disease that makes my immune system get out of control like the cytokine storm. I have used a combination of Enbrel and vaping cannabis to control it. The disease has attacked my lungs. I have been diagnosed with asthma because of it. After years of my combination of Enbrel and vaping cannabis I no longer have asthma symptoms. That would be anecdotal evidence that anti inflammatory drugs could very well save people from dying of the COVID 19 virus. We may never have the kind of evidence one would need to recommend it. All we can do at this point is observe and try to make sense out of it.

    I live in Ferndale and for years my water came out of the tap at 6 ph. A couple of years ago they put in new water lines and it wiped out my whole hydro system overnight. My guess was some additive they put in for the new pipes. Ever since this happened the water from the tap is now 8 to 8.5 ph. Definitely let the water sit before using it and adjust the ph as needed.

    Don't have royal oak water, but I suggest you do some research on it. Check with the municipality, and see if they use Clorine or cloramine. Clorine evaporates, Cloramine does not. Check your ppm with a meter, over 300ppm, also not good. The Detroit Water Only will require more than what's in it. I strongly suggest heavy use of teas, and/or topdressing. You can make it through without, but really does need more. A neighbor went down this road. After 4 runs, it's dialed, but just soil and water did not do the trick for him. Edit: just a thought, maybe mix the bottom half of soil with a packaged supersoil mix. This could give enough umph, to make it on just water. only an idea, not tested

    All of these outlandishly priced Cannabis-Only vaping devices are unnecessary. The E-Cig industry has developed everything needed to vaporize cannabis in ANY form ... and do it cheaply and stealthily. It's On the Shelf ... and there is good competition ... resulting in Price Wars ... and THAT benefits ... US!!! There's no magic to "vaporizing" cannabis ... in any form (dry herb, wax/shatter/liquid, etc). You simply need to apply heat in the correct temperature range to "vaporize" the cannabis ingredients that we all want, without Combusting all the crap we don't want or need. All ya need are three things: 1. A Power Source/Device 2. A Heat Source (like a wire coil) 3. A Tank/Bowl to hold vaping material (dry herb, waxes, liquids, etc) ... well MAYBE one more thing ... {pssst ...} NEVERMIND! ...trust me ... ya don't wanna know ... Let's look at each necessity individually ... and what we already have readily and inexpensively available in the E-Cig realm. 1. Power Source: We just need a battery powered device to supply energy to heat a simple coil, which in turn applies heat to whatever substance you want to vaporize. The E-Cig Industry already has a wide assortment of these power sources ... better and MUCH CHEAPER than ANYTHING in the Cannabis Industry. More importantly, a great many E-Cig Power Devices allow us to simply switch out weakening batteries with fully charged batteries as needed so that we can continue using the Power Source quickly. We don't need to recharge the power device before using it again. Nor do we need to throw away the entire Power Device when it's battery goes stone dead. We just buy a new rechargeable battery. For a marathon group session down by the lake, just throw a couple charged batteries in your pocket, and you're good for the entire day or weekend. Changeable Batteries are rechargeable when it's convenient, or disposable if stone-cold dead ... the more expensive Power Device need not be discarded simply because a battery went belly-up. Perhaps more importantly, we now have inexpensive E-Cig Power Devices which allow us to precisely select the Temperature that our Heat Source (coil) operates at. THAT is HUGE! It means that we can easily optimize the Temperature that is applied to whatever we want to vape. Whether it's Dry Herb, Waxy, or Liquid we can CHOOSE the optimal Temperature to suit both the substance being vaporized as well as to our personal preferences. Believe it or not, some people PREFER to Combust rather than vaporize ... or mix Vapor with combusted stuff. We already have that inexpensive Option with today's E-Cig Power Sources/Devices. 2. Heat Source (typically a resistant wire coil): No magic here. The Power Source pushes electrons to and through a Heat Source (usually a resistant wire coil) ... heating that coil. That coil heats your vaping material (yada, yada ... herb, wax, liquid, etc). This is the most inexpensive piece of the equation, and the piece most likely to fail. But replacing that failed Heat Source (coil) costs mere pennies to replace, and can be switched out within a minute by even a couched stoner within a minute. 3. Tank/Bowl/Reservoir: The tank/Bowl/Reservoir contains whatever stuff you want to vaporize. It's a bit like an oven ... or a pot on top of a stove. It contains the stuff you want to heat and vaporize. Tanks with wicks work for liquids. Ceramic Bowls for Dry Herb and waxy stuff. It's a bit like putting a pot, a dutch oven, or a broiler grill in a heated oven. What's interesting is that the same OVEN can accommodate a wide variety of tanks, bowls, pots, grills, steamers, etc. With the ability to adjust the Power and the HEAT, we can cook anything from Pudding to Pot Roast in an oven. The E-Cig Industry has ALREADY provided all the pots, pans, and steamers we need ... and VERY inexpensively. Why don't we see the Cannabis Vaping Industry consolidating with, and standardizing these three basic components with the far more Evolved E-Cig Industry? Simply put ... Profit. The Cannabis Industry is smaller ... and more Elitist (consolidated in the hands of the Profit-Oriented Few ... rather than in the hands of the many). And .. let's be honest ... stoners ain't all that into research. THINK about it! Stoners pay $600 to $800 to lung-bust on cannabis farts that they suck from a massive Volcano Bung-inflated CONDOM. That's GREAT for schmidtz an' giggles ... but VERY Expensive, and UNNECESSARY on a daily basis! Me? I'm after those same lovely cannabis farts ... but, I'll gladly sacrifice the Schmidtz & Giggles of Gold-Plated Volcano Farts in favor of a highly portable, STEALTHY, INEXPENSIVE, and equally satisfying E-Cig-ish alternative. Don't be silly. Don't be stOOpid. Don't be the stereotypical Stoner. Git yer meds and/or highs conveniently, stealthily, and inexpensively ... with the more EVOLVED Off-the-Shelf E-Cig hardware. BTW ... this is my second post here ... sooooo ... please don't Trump me. A friend of mine asked me: "Did 'stoners' exist before the invention of the remote control?" I said that I didn't know. All that I could say was ... that stoners have PROBABLY existed ... at LEAST ... since a plush SOD was invented and was widely available. ...DimWit

    Perplexed? The people who get legal bribes and sell grow licenses would have to pass it. You think you can bamboozle them Bozo? They pay close attention to their cash cows. People have been trying to bamboozle their way into the cannabis market puffing smoke about hemp for a long time now. It's soooo old. The costume is tattered and doesn't hide anything anymore.

    I use a volcano vaporizer on a low heat setting for a breathing treatment. Always works great for my wife and I. We both have asthma although mine is in remission now since the breathing treatments, no more inhaler. I had a virus back in October that mimics the symptoms reported from COVID 19 infected individuals. I was working out of town at the time and wasn't near anyone while I was sick. I had been near some folks that had recently been to China. The wife of the man I was near had just died of an 'illness'. Never thought that much about it until it hit the news in December. By that time I was completely over it.

    Actually, they were buying from the black market and saying it was caregivers. This will be a boon to truth in marketing. Grow your dam weed yourself and sell it dispensaries. Quit lying for money. Do a little work for a change. Find out what work for money is.

    Marijuana for a Concussion

    Post-Concussion Syndrome ‚Äď Medical Marijuana Research Overview Share Post-concussion syndrome is symptoms that can linger following a concussion. Studies have shown cannabis reduces damage caused from brain injuries and can help patients manage the symptoms of the syndrome. Overview of Post-Concussion Syndrome Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a variety of symptoms, including headaches and dizziness, that continue for weeks and sometimes months following a concussion. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that typically occurs after a direct blow to the head. Not all concussions lead to post-concussion syndrome, which doesn‚Äôt seem to be correlated to the severity of the initial blow. What causes post-concussion symptoms to develop following certain concussions is yet to be identified. According to Mayo Clinic, some experts believe the symptoms come from structural damage to the brain or the disruption of neurotransmitter systems. Others believe that psychological factors may contribute. In addition to headaches and dizziness, post-concussion syndrome commonly causes fatigue, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, loss of concentration and memory, and noise and light sensitivity. Typically, symptoms associated with PCS develop within the first seven to 10 days after a concussion and eventually alleviate within a three-month period. In some cases, however, the symptoms can persist for a year or longer. Treatment for post-concussion syndrome depends on individual symptoms. Headaches are commonly treated with medications. Time, however, is often the best therapy for treating memory and thinking problems. Findings: Effects of Cannabis on Post-Concussion Syndrome While research on cannabis‚Äô direct effect on post-concussion syndrome is lacking, preclinical findings have shown that cannabis offers therapeutic benefits following brain injuries. Studies have shown that the cannabinoids found in cannabis, most specifically cannabidiol (CBD), activate the body‚Äôs cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), though evidence also suggests that the neuroprotective effects from CBD come from the cannabinoid‚Äôs activation of the 5-hydroxytriptamine1A (5-HT1A) receptor (Mishima, et al., 2005). When these receptors are activated, they provide protection against neural damage following acute and chronic brain damage (Lopez-Rodriguez, et al., 2013). For example, in one study, the administration of cannabinoids following a traumatic brain injury decreased brain swelling and inflammation and was shown to improve recovery (Shohami, et al., 2011). Another showed that CBD alone provided neuroprotection and limited brain cell death in newborn mice following a hypoxic-ischemic event (Castillo, et al., 2010). Others have showed that cannabinoids, through the activation of the endocannabinoid system, prevent glutamate excitotoxicity, intracellular calcium accumulation, activation of cell death pathways, microglia activation, neurovascular reactivity and circulating leukocytes following a brain injury. Researchers concluded that modulating the endocannabinoid system is an effective way to provide neuroprotection and prevent and reduce brain injury (Fernandez-Lopez, Lizasoain, Moro & Orgado, 2013). Addition research has shown that cannabis‚Äô cannabinoids provide brain and neuroprotection caused by disorders. One found that CBD reduces the oxidative stress and Alzheimer‚Äôs hallmark protein (ő≤-amyloid), thus limiting nerve damage caused by the disorder and improving cell viability (Harvey, et al., 2012). An animal study showed that CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) treatments were effective at delaying and limiting neural damage caused by Huntington‚Äôs disease (Sagredo, et al., 2011). Another found that CBD, in addition to providing neuroprotective effects and reducing long-term brain injury, also helped restore neurobehavioral function following a hypoxia-ischemia event (Pazos, et al., 2012). Studies have also shown that cannabis can help post-concussion syndrome patients manage the symptoms associated with the disorder. CBD can lower stress, help combat depression, improve sleep and reduce pain (Abush & Akirav, 2013) (Campos, et al., 2012) (Chagas, et al., 2013) (Russo, Guy & Robson, 2007) (Baron, 2015). States That Have Approved Medical Marijuana for Post-Concussion Syndrome Currently, only the state of Illinois has approved medical marijuana for the treatment of post-concussion syndrome. However, in Washington D.C., any condition can be approved for medical marijuana as long as a DC-licensed physician recommends the treatment. In addition, a number of other states will consider allowing medical marijuana to be used for the treatment of post-concussion syndrome with the recommendation from a physician. These states include: California (any debilitating illness where the medical use of marijuana has been recommended by a physician), Connecticut (other medical conditions may be approved by the Department of Consumer Protection), Massachusetts (other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient‚Äôs physician), Nevada (other conditions subject to approval), Oregon (other conditions subject to approval), Rhode Island (other conditions subject to approval), and Washington (any ‚Äúterminal or debilitating condition‚ÄĚ). Also, fourteen states have approved medical marijuana specifically to treat ‚Äúchronic pain,‚ÄĚ which can develop from post-concussion syndrome. These states include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. The states of Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Vermont allow medical marijuana to treat ‚Äúsevere pain.‚ÄĚ The states of Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington have approved cannabis for the treatment of ‚Äúintractable pain.‚ÄĚ Recent Studies on Cannabis‚Äô Effect on Post-Concussion Syndrome CBD shown to reduce neural damage and improve recovery following a brain injury.
