  1. Charlotte Figi, Colorado Girl Who Inspired CBD Movement To Control Seizures, Passes Away From Coronavirus April 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm DENVER (CBS4) — Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl who was among the first children to be treated with cannabidiol (CBD) to control seizures, has died from complications related to COVID-19, according to the Colorado Sun. She was 13 years old. Charlotte’s story changed the way people viewed the use of CBD and she appeared in a 2013 documentary by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “Charlotte’s story directly impacted thousands of families across the globe and has changed the face of cannabis in many ways,” The Realm of Caring Foundation, an organization co-founded by her mother, Paige Figi, stated. “Your work is done Charlotte, the world is changed, and you can now rest knowing that you leave the world a better place.” Charlotte was born with a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. With 300 seizures a week, she couldn’t walk, talk or eat, and no medications worked. Her family had almost lost hope. “I was wishing for no more suffering because we had nothing else to try,” Paige Figi told CBS4. Then her family learned about the type of marijuana that’s low in THC but high in CBD. Paige began giving Charlotte cannabis oil potent with CBD and her seizures nearly stopped. The strain of cannabis was renamed “Charlotte’s Web” — and when word spread about how successful it was, desperate families flocked to Colorado. The Charlotte’s Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014 was named after Charlotte. Last week, Charlotte was hospitalized, for the first time in years, Paige said. She was discharged two days later. Then, on Tuesday night, family members posted that she had passed. “Charlotte is no longer suffering. She is seizure-free forever. Thank you so much for all of your love,” a family member wrote on Facebook. If public health officials verify her death was related to the coronavirus, that would make Charlotte the youngest victim of the pandemic in Colorado so far.
  2. I checked out one of the spam posts recently and they also offered fake ID. I'm certain neither the cannabis or ID would be delivered.
  3. 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.

  6. I love this guys quote. "We have always put patients first when we make decisions regarding medical marijuana,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in the bulletin. “This phase out process is an important next step in implementing the will of Michigan voters and making sure that patients continue to have access to their medicine.” What a sense of humor! He meant to say, ..."making sure that patients continue to pay taxes on their medicine"
  7. I knew they would do it I just wasn't sure how or when. Detroit Metro Times By Steve Neavling Michigan is phasing out a significant source of medical marijuana sold at dispensaries. Licensed caregivers will be prevented from selling marijuana to the regulated market beginning on Oct. 1, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced in a bulletin Monday. The original intent of caregivers was to provide cannabis to up to five medical cardholders. But the state allowed caregivers to sell to licensed growers and processors to overcome a shortage in marijuana. Now that the state has nearly 200 licensed medical cannabis growers in Michigan, the MRA is beginning to cut off caregivers to allow the market to work itself out. “We have always put patients first when we make decisions regarding medical marijuana,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in the bulletin. “This phase out process is an important next step in implementing the will of Michigan voters and making sure that patients continue to have access to their medicine.” To make the transition smoother, the state is phasing out the use of caregivers in three steps. Beginning Sunday, growers and processors were prohibited from obtaining marijuana plants, concentrates, vape cartridges, and infused products from caregivers. Growers and processors will be permitted to continue buying unlimited flower from caregivers until May 31. From June 1 to Sept. 30, a commercial grower can only obtain caregiver-grown marijuana flower that weighs less than or equal to 50% of the total weight of flower that the commercial grower harvests. The final phase is Oct. 1, when growers can no longer obtain flower from caregivers. Caregivers were the source of marijuana cartridges tainted with vitamin E acetate, the potentially deadly additive that is to blame for the outbreak of lung injuries. The impact of the phaseout is not yet clear. If there is a shortage, prices could rise.
  8. I for one didn't respond because I had no pertinent information about the subject. But, if it makes you feel better; I've never heard of that strain and have no idea where one might obtain such a thing.
  9. Which high CBD strains do you prefer? I've never noticed much relief from CBD but it helps my wife.
  10. You can grow up to 12 marijuana plants per household. Twelve plants can give you quite a large yield. You can also "gift" up to 2.5 oz. or 15 grams of concentrate for free to another adult. My suggestion would be to grow your own cannabis and then you can give your uncle his meds from your supply as long as no money changes hands. The few years that the state infringes on your rights because of your age will give you a good opportunity to hone your growing skills so when you reach an age deemed proper by our brilliant leaders you will be able to supply patients with confidence.
  11. There wasn't much interest on this site. Grow Green Mi has had a couple of clone and seed swaps. They are becoming popular from what I understand. Keep an eye on their website for info on upcoming swaps. http://growgreenmi.com/
  12. I wouldn't bet the farm on it. Plain speaking and common sense has never been applied to cannabis laws in Michigan. When the medical law passed you were allowed to obtain it anywhere but no one could give you any unless they were your registered caregiver. The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.
  13. I just planted a freebee CBDurban seed. The seedbank says it tests 8% CBD and 8% THC. I don't have much experience with high CBD strains and haven't been particularly impressed by the results. My general impression has been that I get as much relief from my Marie Laveau mojo bag as I do from the CBD but it seems to work for my wife. Has anyone tried this strain or a strain with a similar ratio? I was wondering what sort of effects to expect from it. Will it get you high or just give you a headache?
