I know, I need to really jump our here and fully incorporate cannabis into my diet. Cannabis is an amazing SuperFood and should be in your diet. I have a goal to get cannabis into my diet more but we need more access. Cannabis is an amazing superfood and gives your body essential nutrients to survive.
Amendment 3 to make Marijuana Recreational is on the ballot. Sadly many will see it as a great thing and “Making Cannabis legal” it does NOT do such a thing. It really just shuffles prohibition around so adults can “legally” carry more. No protections if you get up and drive the next day or month! The THC will still be in your blood when you get in an accident, and it will go towards you – even if not your fault. No considerations of that are taken in.
This regulation really only goes to assist in the moving the Cannabis profits to a system they can try and regulate.
Expunging past offenses get us NO WHERE as it only moves your offenses to a system “physically and electronically segregated“!
Costs on cannabis go up, taxed to add 6% more and another 3% if the locality it’s in wants in too.
Punishment for having this SAFE plant get added – it is safe as FOOD, in fact, is a superfood! Even though maybe medical necessary and is safe penalties get ADDED! – “Purposefully possessing amounts in excess of twice the legal limit shall be punishable by imprisonment of up to one year and a fine of up to two thousand dollars as an infraction under applicable law.”
Another makes a fine for making concentrate in your home! What if this is medically needed? You’ll have to not DIY and take it commercial instead! “$1000 FINE FOR PRODUCING CONCENTRATES IN YOUR HOME“
This isn’t real legalization, its a total shift for the dispensary business and NOT in favor of the cannabis consumer. A Fellow advocate breaks it down much better detail and links to the details of the law he made for the state. We need to free cannabis, restore it back to the time before 1937 when it was a free commodity.
I read today a take from Leafy discussing the use of the word “Marijuana” and does it end up being racist to use?
I was glad to see this article and their perspective. I often run into this and prefer to not use “Marijuana” often if I can help it. I tend to less see it as racist, but a jab to fog up the meaning of the word and give a negative spun perspective. As mentioned in the article, many under 20 or so know and use the word, while those 50 and older would prefer to avoid the word.
I prefer to use the words Cannabis or Hemp as they are the same plant and important to our history and health. Prior to 1937 Cannabis and Indian Hemp we’re the terms used for Cannabis in a Medicinal form!
Infact the other day I picked up a Stedman’s Shorter Medical Dictionary and found it listed there:
(It also lists it’s in the U.S.P which is the United States Pharmacopeia (official medicine sourcebook)
Anyways, enough on my tangent. It’s just important to me that Marijuana has been a word to confuse as those who used medicine knew what cannabis was. We now today pretend it’s a cousin. If you want to learn the history of cannabis I recommend reading Emperor Wears no Clothes by Jack Herer and http://antiquecannabisbook.com as well to see the history of cannabis.
Well check the link below for Leafly’s input –
Read the article on Leafly: https://www.leafly.com/news/politics/is-the-word-marijuana-racist
It was found in an Appeals court that Δ8 Delta-8 Cannabis is legal and separate from “Marijuana” classification. They found that the Farm Bill of 2018 classified it as Hemp, “expressly applies to ‘all’ such downstream products so long as they do not cross the 0.3 percent delta-9 THC threshold.”
Delta-8 (Δ8) hemp has been found to have similar effects to the psychoactive and other effects of Delta-9 (Δ9) which is active in Cannabis that has been deemed regulated by the DEA. Allowed in some states medically*.

*Cannabis is legal for Religious use but that’s another story! See Temple 420!
I’m often telling people about the amazing power of cannabis. It’s a super food and an essential product to our bodies.
Now further research shows both the “Marijuana” and “Hemp” forms contain acids that attack and stop the SARS COV-2 from being able to enter the cells.
I tried out the Hello Products Hemp toothpaste. I’d give it a 9/10. As seemed to be great quality! Great taste. It doesn’t foam too crazy but seems to work and clean my teeth well. Reasonable price point!
Video Review –
I’ve got my HempMyLife store up with products coming. I’ll update the link here soon too. However I have Hemp, Shirts coming, got a mask, more incoming!
Here’s also a fun package I made for my Cannabis (Hemp) – Its not included in the product.
A “Sample” theoretical package for the Amazing Amish Grown Super Silver Haze. With a CBD of 21% that blows so many more away. Quality Cannabis at way lower the price than other!
Who would have imagined! (ME) Cannabis hemp is the best material to make your COVID-19 face mask out of. It also seems like it may help fight it. Studies as linked below say that Hemp is best material for being able to breathe and stop germs! It has been shown to be anti-microbial so id expect as much. See the details of the study at the link.
I did a video review for HempVana’s 100% Hemp Oil. Its posted to my channel on YouTube.
I’ll provide some data here.
I’d give it an 8/10 score. Its much better “Hemp” than other HempVana products, as some where 6% and they claimed that would do something.
It did appear though the bottle had leaked a bit when I took off the cap from the dried oil. To me this was concerning on quality but it didn’t taste rancid or bad. However it does seem to have an lingering aftertaste I don’t remember from others. It did seem like instant energy feeling once consumed like the other I’ve tried. I’d recommend it if you need some super-food in your diet and could use EFAs or Cannabis products to help you.
Chemistry World: Handheld device weeds out cannabis from hemp | Research.
I know from efforts in my community that Cannabis can be checked with a Spectrometer. It appears now we’ve got a
hand held portable
Raman spectrometer that can check your Cannabis for THC now. It used to be a big machine that could do it in a lab. Now you can bring it with you!
I think this is a good thing for the part that we’ve had so many people trying to move cannabis CBD/Hemp products and getting nailed and detained as they can’t figure out it’s not ‘Marijuana’ (0.03< THC really only difference). They are both a superfood and amazing for you. If the feds will allow the ‘Hemp’ variety the be used while we’re sorting the medical laws we should be able to access it. Hopefully this helps that plight.
