What People Over 55 Should Know About Marijuana and Healthcare 

October 23rd, 2017

Are you over the age of 55?  (If you’re not, share this with your parents or grandparents, please.)  How do you feel about marijuana?  You’ve probably grown up in the post baby boomer generation when the war on drugs included marijuana labeled as the gateway drug. That probably sounds crazy, given the fact that 28 states now have laws in place for legal access to cannabis, while ten states have measures on the 2018 ballot.  While scientific evidence shows the medical benefits of cannabis, beware of political scare tactics that use the word “marijuana” as they are often inaccurate, false,... Read More

Lady Loves Cannabis, But She’s Not Human!

June 12th, 2017

There’s a new girl in the garden and she knows how to eliminate those pesky little aphids.   Who is she? Drum roll please…The Ladybug!  Did you know ladybugs are the organic alternative to chemical pesticides for your garden or grow? You got it, those little red beetles can eat up to 5,000 aphids in their 2-3 year lifespan.   As the name might imply, the ladybug is not a bug at all. In fact, considered a beetle, there is a hard shell under the polka dot red camouflage, to protect the delicate wings.  The ladybug is particularly popular in commercial cannabis cultivation facilities... Read More

MexiCannabis Revolution

May 5th, 2017

Photo Credit: History.com   Today in Mexico, communities host military parades to honor an improbable Mexican Army victory, under General Ignacio Zaragoza’s command, against French forces at the Battle of Puebla, May 5, 1862. While in America, Cinco de Mayo has assimilated into a party-focused holiday, celebrating (in some cases, appropriating) our country’s Mexican-American culture. However, a totally different Mexican congregation has those within the cannabis community celebrating with extra incentive this year. Just last week, with only 11 votes against and 371 votes in favor,... Read More

Teach the Children Well!

May 1st, 2017

Hey parents, when was the last time you sat down and read your child a story about the benefits of medical cannabis?  Chances are, never.  Parents and educators hesitate on the inclusion of “benefits” of medical cannabis in their discussions, however, they highlight risks and abuse of marijuana instead.  We continue to confuse children with mixed messages on the topic of medical cannabis so parents are left to their own creativity to teach their kids compassion and respect for those who suffer and use cannabis as treatment. According to a Denver Post article,  there are over 350... Read More

The Shield vs. MMJ

April 29th, 2017

As 2017’s NFL Draft closes this evening, let’s take a look at the league’s policy regarding players’ cannabis consumption. Yesterday, Commissioner Goodell – welcomed by steady boos throughout the draft, every year (sparked, perhaps, by resentment toward his ~$35 Million salary, and his catering billionaire owners over player welfare and safety) – made a public statement on marijuana use, consistent with his previous rhetoric on the issue. Goodell basically maintains that the league will remain consistent with current medical research, and continue exploring potential... Read More
