    Do caregivers provide an allowance?

    So you agree that there are "good dispensaries" with "great cannabis". Not at all what you said earlier about how they all have watered down strains...

    Do caregivers provide an allowance?

    What are these "watered down strains" that "all" of these dispensaries are carrying (and why are so many folks therefore growing them)? I don't doubt that you grow excellent herb, but I have had few complaints with the many products I've purchased from dispensaries over the years. Certainly there is no way that any caregiver can compete with the sheer variety of items - whether flower, or concentrates, or edibles - found at even the most modest place.

    Assuming most of the "excess" grow is being sold to dispensaries, I don't understand how Michigan caregivers can break even - much less make a little profit - with the prices of herb being so low...
  4. Yeah, that's the thing, they DIDN'T define what abuse was. Since they have to rely on self reported info with such a study, I would have thought that would at least have recorded things like frequency over time, be it cannabis or alcohol (the latter which we KNOW can cause irresponsible brain damage). Very strange report... Edit: typo, but I sorta like "irresponsible" brain damage
  5. Yer not gonna like this one... https://www.iospress.nl/ios_news/largest-brain-study-of-62454-scans-identifies-drivers-of-brain-aging/ The full article (thanks to sci-hub) mentions "cannabis use disorder" but I don't know what the "How often and for how long" criteria are other than the general info that wikipedia says on it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_use_disorder
  6. I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on TV but I will say: do NOT inhale combusted plant material when you are pregnant. There is nothing "magic" about cannabis smoke - it has toxins like any other burning plant. http://www.canorml.org/healthfacts/Second-Study-Shows-Vaporizers-Drastically-Reduce-Toxins-in-Marijuana-Smoke

    Differences between these concentrates

    Yeah, I was surprised at how thin the stuff was. Please note I spoke with him and he is more circumspect. Says "he thinks it is more potent". Saw a FlavRX review that said up to 90% THC, however it is not so labeled on the packaging and I kinda doubt that number. I used to get the syringes to fill my vape, but it is SO much less a hassle & mess to buy pre-filled carts, & no more dealing with coils. And no cost premium. There's a tradeoff, for sure, in the quality of the cart itself, but that's a tradeoff I'm willing to make. If it sits for a bit and gets thick, I just blast it for a minute with a hair dryer.

    Differences between these concentrates

    Anyone have specific experience with commercial CO2-extracted oil in terms of potency differences? I've tried FlavRX, Hello oil, Mitten meds, and a couple others. I haven't found any major differences except for taste (I don't use anything with added flavors except for FlavRX which is supposedly from naturally derived terpenes.) However a friend just got back from Cali with an oil cartridge that he claims is much more potent, and the oil is much thinner than the aforementioned ones (which eventually get quite thick and then look more like a wax.)

    Investing in Cannabis

    Hmm, I wonder if this could have anything to do with the fact that Goldman keeps touting GW as a "buy"...
  10. UGH. When I see the acronym CRMLA it reminds me of NAMBLA.

    Investing in Cannabis

    Pretty good article discussing the ways in which one can "add some greenery to your investment portfolio". https://twocents.lifehacker.com/how-to-invest-in-legal-weed-1822368702 I like the concluding advice: "Treat cannabis investing like edibles: Start low and go slow."
  12. Abstract from the Economic Journal, Nov 16, 2017. Here is a news article that discusses it: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jan/14/legal-marijuana-medical-use-crime-rate-plummets-us-study The original journal can be found here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ecoj.12521/full (for fee, unless you use Sci-Hub)
  13. You like that fake news headline? Ok, what is really going on is that illegal outdoor grows in California (est 15,000 in Humboldt County alone) frequently use rat poison to protect their crops. Owls (spotted & barred, mostly) as the top predator eat the mice and eventually hemorrhage (which is how rat poison works, by inhibiting vitamin K and thus preventing blood clotting) and die. Here's an article about it. https://www.livescience.com/61403-marijuana-farms-dying-owls.html
  14. "Less fatal car accidents"? So the same number of accidents but they aren't as fatal? Methinks you meant "fewer fatal car accidents".

    CBD oil

    Haven't tried CBD tincture so can't help you, but please post here with any results you find (positive or negative) and for what conditions. We've tried high CBD herb with little success for addressing nausea or inflammation (and haven't had good results with THC tincture for recreational use.) Our best results for nausea has been with vaping THC oil. Note that you may be able to mail order CBD tincture so you should check out what is available online.
