3 Pros and 3 Cons of Eating Edibles
 
02:36
Every marijuana user has his or her preferred way of consuming cannabis whether is be a joint, pipe, bong, edible, or vape. Edibles are a tasty and popular way to consume cannabis, so much that some consumers prefer it to any other way of ingesting marijuana, simply because it doesn’t require any kind of smoking. Edibles also create a different high experience than when smoking because the THC goes through a different system before effecting a consumer. The effects do take time to feel, which is also why some people don’t consume edibles, so just like any other method of consumption, edibles have a list of both pros and cons. First, edibles create a longer lasting high experience that can last anywhere from three to seven hours. This is caused by a number of factors, but mainly because the edible must be digested before the THC goes into the bloodstream. Then because they’re digested differently, edibles create a stronger high because the THC passes through the liver, which converts THC to a different psychoactive form than when smoked. Once high, the feeling lasts anywhere from three to seven hours, making for a more constant high that lasts all three to four hours, compared to the high from smoking, which constantly spikes and falls.

The 5 Most Popular Home Grown Marijuana Strains
 
02:14
Like any other plant, growing marijuana is a challenge and task that requires a number of skills. Cannabis plants come in all forms, requiring specific care depending on the particular strain. Some strains are easier to grow than others, because they produce a higher yield or require a shorter flowering period. Unfortunately, many beginner growers opt for the more budget friendly strains, though they may ultimately cost more because they may be more difficult to grow. For this reason, there are a number of popular home grown marijuana strains that yield some of the best flowers. In addition to being one of these popular home grown marijuana strains, Jack Herer is arguably one of the most popular and best strains in the industry. This particular strain is great for beginners because Jack Herer requires a fairly effortless growing process. Jack Herer is also a heavy yielding plant, so with little effort, growers will produce plenty of flowers. Purple Kush is another popular home grown strain that is slightly more challenging to grow, yet it thrives in both indoors and outdoors. These distinct, dense purple buds produce flowers with THC levels as high as 27%.

The 5 Marijuana Strains with the Largest Buds
 
01:58
When choosing a particular cannabis strain to grow, cultivators take into consideration a number of factors, like the plant’s flowering period, yield rate, and flower size. For this reason, cannabis plants are like snowflakes, because each strain has a unique size, shape, structure, color, and high. Now that so many options are available, consumers pay close attention to how their bud looks and feels. Some particular strains may produce buds that are more dense, while other plants may produce more colorful flowers. There are specific marijuana strains that growers and consumers choose when looking for a flower with the largest buds. Strawberry Kush is a strain that produces some of the largest flower buds. This strain is popular among indoor cultivators because for such a short and small plant size, Strawberry Kush produces a large amount of flowers. The plant will remain small, only reaching roughly 37 inches, over the span of its lifetime, but it produces dense buds that create a calming, heavy body high. Another popular strain that produces some of the largest buds is Sour Diesel. Unlike Strawberry Kush, Sour Diesel is both tall and high yielding. Experts recommend growing outdoors to produce larger quantities and buds.

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Waking and Baking
 
02:49
Morning routines typically set the tone for the rest of the day, because if someone wakes up and is very productive, then they will most likely be just as productive for the rest of the day. The same is true if someone wakes up and decides to stay in bed instead, then the remainder of their day will most likely be just as lazy and relaxing. Many cannabis consumers actually have a morning routine of their own that involves marijuana and sets the tone for the rest of their day, known as the classic morning ritual, the wake and bake. For those who are unfamiliar with the wake and bake, it’s as simple as the title, consumers wake up and immediately smoke marijuana. Some consumers enjoy performing this morning ritual every morning because it helps them throughout the day, but like any other form of consumption, waking and baking has both its pros and cons. First, many consumers enjoy waking up and smoking because it helps them start their day on a high note because if they smoke a sativa, it often gives them the energy boost they need to keep going strong all day. Many consumers actually prefer to smoke a sativa rather than drinking coffee in the morning, so in a way waking and baking is their caffeine. Marijuana users also enjoy waking and baking because it is the only quiet and peace they have before they have to get up and start working. The effects of the cannabis creates this relaxing ritual because it helps ease anxiety when stress from work really hits, so consumers who wake and bake are more prepared for the rest of their day.

5 Marijuana Strains with the Prettiest Flowers
 
02:01
Marijuana legalization is spreading and becoming more favorable across the world, which is proving to be great for the United States, but isn’t necessarily great for the plant itself. As more state have legalized marijuana, it has become more politicized so it’s easy to forget that it is still just a plant, and just like any other plant, marijuana is both beautiful and unique. Marijuana has hundreds of different strains though, so there are a number of types of marijuana plants that have some of the prettiest flowers. Northern Lights is a popular strain that is beautiful with green and gold flowers that blend together, nearly to the point where they appear woven. This is also a popular strain because of its appearance, which is also coated in crystals and hues of purple. Rainbow Kush is another popular strain with some of the prettiest flowers because the plant produces many compact flowers that come in an array of colors. These colorful flowers are green and purple buds with red and blue crystal hairs, which certainly may be the reason by ‘Rainbow’ is in its name. Purple Berry Kush is also a strain that produces colorful flowers that stay true to its colorful lineage, with green flowers streaked with purple, blue, and sometimes orange. Like all beauty though, the beauty of marijuana truly comes from what’s inside the plant.

6 Facts About How Cannabis Was Used in Ancient Egypt
 
01:32
In recent years, cannabis has been considered one of the most widespread medicinal herbs. Before, in ancient times, the plant, medicine, and drug’s reach was much wider as its use was much more common in different aspects of regular life. For thousands of years, cannabis has been part of Egypt’s cultural and religious practices, which many modern laws now prohibit. First, yes, Ancient Egypt used cannabis as we do today, for medicinal purposes, but the Egyptians uncovered and used these medicinal properties far beyond what today’s medical science has been able to. The Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical textbooks found, mentions a number of formulas that help with pain relief caused by various diseases and injuries including depression, glaucoma, inflammation, hemorrhoids, cataracts, and even cancer. In addition to its medical properties, cannabis was used for Egyptian religion and culture. When the mummy of Pharaoh Ramesses II was uncovered, traces of cannabis were found in the remains. Similar traces of the plant have been found in a number of other mummies, which confirms that marijuana was a regular part of Egyptian culture during ancient times. One of their gods, Seshat, the goddess of wisdom, is even often depicted with a marijuana leaf above her head in ancient paintings. Many worshippers may have used cannabis in religious rituals for this reason.

The 6 Strongest Strains of Marijuana Today
 
01:24
While marijuana continues to become more accepted and more people become marijuana consumers, the demand for new strains increases. Consumers are particularly demanding more potent strains with higher THC concentrations. Now, there is quite the wide selection of these potent strains available because more growers are cross-breeding and producing hybrids with high levels of THC. A few years ago, some of the most potent strains had 22% THC and now, some of the world’s most strongest strains contain as high as 35% THC. Nova OG is one of the strongest marijuana strains, and possibly one of the highest testing strains in history. Manali West, a grower that specializes in rare and unique strains, produces this flower with 35.6% THC. This extremely potent strain is a hybrid between Top Dawg Seeds’ Stardawg Guava and an OG/Diesel cross. Godfather OG is another potent hybrid that crosses Cherry Pie, Granddaddy Purps, and OG Kush to produce 34.04% THC. This potency broke the previous Cannabis Cup record of 32.13% THC. At this rate, in another year, strains will be double as potent. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/civilized.life/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/civilized.l...

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Smoking From a Bong
 
02:21
Bongs can be made from basically anything that creates an air- and water-tight vessel, making them one of the most popular pieces in which to smoke marijuana. The bubbling water, smoke chambers, and bowls aren’t quite as intimidating as they seem because bongs come in all shapes and sizes, each smoking and pulling in a unique way. For this reason, some bongs are better than others, but overall, even though they are common among users, bongs aren’t always the best way to smoke marijuana, because every piece has its pros and cons. First let’s start with a positive, which is that water in bongs trap heavier particles, so water-soluble molecules and toxins don’t enter the airway, which makes for a cleaner and smoother smoke. This does come with its fault though, because this water filtration process traps THC, “Water pipes filter out more psychoactive THC than they do other tars, thereby requiring users to smoke more to reach their desired effect,” according to 2000 NORML-MAPS study. The water has more pros though, because it cools the smoke, which makes it easier to inhale, especially the bongs with ice chambers, making for an even colder and smoother smoke.

The 6 Rarest Marijuana Strains Ever
 
02:00
As commercial cannabis continues to grow, hybrids and high potency strains are becoming more popular due to a high demand for more THC. While hybrid popularity is increasing, the number of new strains being produced is also growing. The industry is growing so fast that it seems like a new strain is introduced every week. Due to this high demand for hybrids and higher potency, strains that we smoked in the 1960s are becoming rare, almost to the point where some don’t even exist anymore. Other rare strains are also becoming less available because the cannabis can only grow in certain regions. Colombian Gold is one of these strains that was popular during the 1960s but is hard to come by today. In the ‘60s, most people were smoking leaves, stems, and seeds but Colombian Gold revolutionized that with its dense, fresh, and healthy flower buds. When consumed, it produces a classic sativa high that is both powerful and cerebral. Although Colombian Gold was the first strain smuggled out of Colombia’s Santa Marta valley into the U.S., it is rarely found in the U.S. or anywhere for that matter. Those who seek the strain have to rely on their memory of their high from the ‘60s.

The 5 Strongest Edibles Ever Produced
 
01:44
As a result of the growing cannabis industry, there are more regular cannabis consumers than ever before. While the number of marijuana users continues to grow, the demand for more potent cannabis is also on the rise. The more people smoke, the higher their tolerance, which explains why they are asking for more potent strains and now, why they are also asking for more potent edibles. The larger consumer of these high-dose edibles are older adults who are consuming the edibles in small amounts, or micro-doses, ideal for medical purposes. Most producers don’t recommend consuming edibles in one sitting anyway, so micro-dosing is a smart strategy to gage the edible’s potency. The Venice Cookie Company makes one of the most potent edibles, “The Elvis”. The cookie is made with cacao, peanut butter, banana, white chocolate, sea salt, and of course cannabis, with 1,000 mg of THC. This cookie is so potent that it warns new edible consumers to choose an edible with a lower potency. Another potent edible is Korova’s Black Bar which contains double the chocolate and double the potency with also a full 1,000 mg THC. The chocolate bar is recommended only for those with extreme pain and a high tolerance. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/civilized.life/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/civilized.l...

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Smoking Weed with a Pipe
 
02:19
Every marijuana consumer has a preference for how they like to consume their cannabis. Some users enjoy smoking a classic joint because they’re portable and simple. Other consumers enjoy smoking from bongs because they are smooth and cool to smoke from the water or ice. Another common and favorite way users smoke their cannabis is from a pipe. Now, consumers can go to any smoke shop and buy a cheap and easy-to-smoke pipe, but the more costly glass pipes pull and look the best because each is unique. Pipes are frequently used by consumers, though they certainly have their pros and cons. First, pipes are common to smoke with because they’re easy to clean. Pipe cleaners are mostly used for arts and crafts now, but they’re called pipe cleaners for a reason, because they don’t leave any residue behind. Most marijuana pipes are made of glass, so they also don’t add any taste to the flower, so there’s no way the actual pipe will taint the bud. The glass material can also be considered a con because glass is so easy to break. Many users don’t travel with their pipes though, so they’re certainly a favorite way to consume marijuana among consumers.

5 Facts About How Cannabis Was Used by the Mayan People
 
02:14
Marijuana is one of the oldest known psychoactive drugs that has been used for thousands of years by a number of different cultures and religions. The drug has been used all across the world for all different purposes, like in Ancient Egypt for example, cannabis was used as a pain-reliever, and traces of it is found in the remains of several mummies. Marijuana was also grown and consumed in Early America, where colonists cultivated sativa L, which contains less than 1% THC, not nearly enough for anyone to get high. The Mayan people was another civilization across the world that grew and consumed cannabis as part of its culture as well. The Mayan people actually grew large marijuana farms that were only just recently discovered, as they were previously mistaken for pyramids, “They’re not Maya pyramids. They’re either abandoned cornfields, or active marijuana fields.” Since the Mayan people had so many marijuana farms, it’s fair to assume that they consumed the plant like they consumed tobacco, by grinding the flower into a powder to make a powerful alcoholic drink. There is also plenty of evidence of this in much of their art, which has a long suspected history of smoking depicted pictorially on murals, showing Mayans used cannabis for all purposes.

While marijuana legalization continues to spread, more growers are introducing and creating new strains for cannabis users to enjoy. Although users can easily purchase low-grade strains or shake for a cheap price, the THC content and quality is much higher in the more expensive top-shelf strains. Typical top-shelf cannabis can go for as low as $45 an eighth, but the price for high quality bud is rising. Some of the most expensive strains sell for up to $800 an eighth, including one of the most expensive strains, Isla O.G. Canned Cannabis by Top Shelf THC. One can containing an eighth of cannabis sells for $100, making an entire ounce of Isla O.G. a whopping $800.

Millions of people use “Leafly” to explore thousands of marijuana strains and access maps to find a dispensary nearby that carries a particular cannabis strain. The app is described as “The World’s Cannabis Information Resource” because it has the largest database of marijuana information. “Weedmaps” is another popular app among cannabis consumers because it is the Google Maps for marijuana dispensaries. Weedmaps is the largest and most comprehensive marijuana directory and discovery resource with the most up-to-date and accurate dispensary listings.

5 Weed Strains You’ve Never Heard Of
 
02:02
The marijuana industry is growing at an unpredictable rate as more businesses, manufacturers, growers, and distributors enter the market. Now that there are more farmers growing, there is also more marijuana than ever before. Cannabis consumers now have more choices because growers are constantly introducing new strains of marijuana. Some of these strains fall through the cracks, simply because they aren’t quite as popular, so most people haven’t even heard of them. Purple Molokai Frost is one of the strains you’ve never heard of because it is a real challenge to find, often sending users on a scavenger hunt. The strain was popular during the 1960s when it was mostly smoked by “hippies”. Amphetamine is another strain you’ve never heard of because it’s named after the actual drug Amphetamine, which is typically used to treat ADHD. Just like the drug it’s named after, this strain is known as nature on speed, because after smoking Amphetamine, your heart will be racing, but unlike the real stimulant, the feeling won’t be too overwhelming. Chernobyl is also a strain consumers haven’t heard of because it is named after the famous catastrophic nuclear accident. Fortunately, smoking these strains is more relaxing and energizing than what their names may indicate.

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Smoking Joints
 
02:25
Joints are one of the most classic and common methods of smoking marijuana. Every marijuana consumer has his or her preferred way of smoking though, so some users don’t enjoy this old school method. For this reason, in the industry you either love joints or hate joints, because like any other method of consumption, joints have both pros and cons. First, joints are great to smoke on the go because they are discreet since they’re small and look like cigarettes, plus they’re easily disposable, so users don’t have to carry around a joint butt all night. Joints are also very popular because they progressively get stronger the more they are smoked because the weed becomes stickier as more resin builds up. This makes for bigger pulls of tastier, harsher weed that hits users harder. Many users don’t like smoking this way though because it wastes weed faster because joints burn the same amount of cannabis at a faster pace. There is also a learning curve to smoking joints that many users don’t have the patience for because not only do they need to learn how to smoke properly, but they need to learn how to roll a joint. Rolling joints requires flimsy papers, so rollers have to be extremely delicate, or all their work will be destroyed. Many consumers still prefer the classic joint to anything else though, so they will always remain popular.

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Getting a Medical Marijuana Card
 
02:53
A number of states are moving forward with marijuana legalization, and depending on the state, some dispensaries require medical marijuana cards. Even in legal states, many marijuana consumers purchase their marijuana from the black market because they don’t want to go through the process to get a medical marijuana card. Some legal states, like California, have a simple process to receive a medical marijuana card though, so there are many positives and negatives to getting a medical marijuana card. Many marijuana consumers get medical cards because they provide extra protection to patients and marijuana businesses. Marijuana is still illegal on the federal level even though many states provide medical and recreational cannabis, so a medical card affords legal protection for patients under the state’s marijuana laws. A medical marijuana card can also help consumers save money depending on the state, because some have established tax benefits for those with medical cards. Medical patients purchase marijuana for a cheaper price than recreational users, so there are many positives to getting medical marijuana cards. The process to actually get a medical marijuana card isn’t always simple though, so many consumers and patients don’t bother getting cards.

6 Most Beautiful Dispensaries
 
01:31
Before marijuana became legalized and before dispensaries began selling legalized marijuana, cannabis consumers were forced to hit up their local weed dealers to buy some black market bud. Now that it is legalized, many dispensaries across the country have introduced their own unique way to sell cannabis. It may seem simple; show them your medical card and pick the strain you want to smoke, but dispensaries are demonstrating new ways for cannabis consumers to purchase their weed that are just as simple, but more of a heightened experience. Some of these unique and innovative dispensaries inhabit historic buildings and some embrace modern, ultra-minimalist spaces with lots of white-on-white color schemes. The Barbary Coast dispensary, located in San Francisco, California, is the definition of a beautiful dispensary. Other than providing high quality, lab-tested, clean, and potent cannabis, Barbary Coast provides an experience for its patients. First, the decor features exposed brick, mahogany accents, brass-studded bar stools, and Oriental style rugs that create a luxurious and yet relaxed environment for patients. The dispensary also features, “The most decadent pot smoking lounge in the West.” Entry into the lounge is granted with a marijuana purchase but it’s open entry when product demos are taking place in the lounge.

The History of Marijuana in Oklahoma
 
01:58
Oklahoma is known for having some of the strictest marijuana laws in the United States, with a history that dates back as early as 1933, when the state outlawed all forms of marijuana. This prohibition came as part of the nationwide trend to restrict cannabis. By 1983, Oklahoma introduced a program to rid the state of marijuana, "Back in the early 80's, we were getting hundreds of thousands of plants. Now we're cut down a little bit, and a I think this year we have got 92,000 plants." The State Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs saw a few early busts when the program first began that shaped Oklahoma’s position on marijuana. Jim Montgomery, a paraplegic from the waist down, is an example of one of the most extraordinary cases in Oklahoma. Montgomery was arrested with two ounces of cannabis, which he consumed to relieve muscle spasms, though he was tried and convicted with intent to distribute, for possession of paraphernalia, for unlawful possession of a weapon, and for maintaining a place for users of controlled substances. The jury sentenced him to life in prison, plus sixteen years, which the judge and prosecutor found appalling, reducing his sentence to ten years. Now, Oklahoma continues to punish possession with jail time, so the state continues to fight for legalization.

13 Budtenders Tell Us Their Favorite Cannabis Strain
 
03:29
A budtender is the person behind the counter at a cannabis dispensary, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products will be best for their wants and needs. California budtenders have seen a lot of traffic since cannabis became recreational in January 2018. Both medical and recreational consumers are now visiting dispensaries for their very first time, entering a world of weed products including edibles, extracts, and flower that inspire a number of questions for the budtenders. Every dispensary is different, so budtenders are a valuable resource for both new and old consumers browsing the assortment of cannabis products that may seem overwhelming without a budtender to guide them. Fortunately, Civilized sat down with budtenders from all over Los Angeles to learn about cannabis culture and dispensaries in our weekly series Ask A Budtender. In this episode of the series, the budtenders discuss their favorite strain of cannabis.

The Pros and Cons of Edibles, According to Edibles Company Kushy Punch
 
03:50
Kushy Punch hopes to make its consumers healthier and happier by crafting the world’s best edibles. To create the best cannabis products, Kushy Punch uses the highest quality locally grown flower, the finest ingredients, and the safest cooking methods. Professional confectionery chefs make each edible without using any chemicals, but rather all-natural handmade organic lemon extract, which is found in every product. Their line of medicated gummies comes in six different varieties and potencies, which includes sativa, indica, hybrid, and CBD, which have up to 200 milligrams of THC. Recover is a Kushy Punch Super Potent Gummy Formula, which contains 60 milligrams of THC and 30 milligrams of CBD. This particular variety is popular among athletes, MMA fighters, and consumers who exercise because it helps with clarity, focus, mood, and social anxiety. Another popular gummy flavor is TKO, which just as the name suggests, is a technical knockout with 200 milligrams of THC. Kushy Punch recommends TKO for experienced users with a high tolerance and severe pain, because the gummy contains a high dosage of medical marijuana. In the same way that users can purchase flower, by choosing a particular strain and amount, Kushy Punch hopes to offer similar choices with its variety of flavors.

Does Arnold Schwarzenegger Smoke Weed?
 
01:58
Arnold Schwarzenegger is an actor, producer, businessman, politician, and former professional bodybuilding known for his role in “The Terminator”. Before Schwarzenegger became the star that he is today, he grew up in Austria before moving to the United States. At a young age, Schwarzenegger had an interest in fitness and bodybuilding, so he competed in several minor contests in Europe. Then, when Schwarzenegger moved to the United States, his star continued to rise because he became the poster boy for bodybuilding. Beginning in 1970, Schwarzenegger dominated the bodybuilding competition, winning five Mr. Universe titles and seven Mr. Olympia titles, which transformed him into a sports icon. Schwarzenegger’s talents went far beyond bodybuilding though, so he appeared on screen as Arnold Strong in “Hercules in New York”, then director Bob Rafelson cast him in “Stay Hungry” alongside Jeff Bridges and Sally Field. This then led him to star in “Pumping Iron”, a docudrama covering the 1975 Mr. Olympia contest in South Africa. Schwarzenegger continued his acting career in the now famous movie franchise “The Terminator”, but then he later pursued a career in politics as the Governor of California. During his prime bodybuilding days, Schwarzenegger was one of the healthiest men in the world, which included smoking cannabis. Schwarzenegger’s friend Tommy Chong confirmed that the sports icon used to smoke cannabis, "I would work out with Arnold Schwarzenegger when he first came over to America. When he was the golden boy of bodybuilding, and he was probably one of the healthiest guys on the planet… but he would smoke a joint because he knew it was healthy." Schwarzenegger himself later confirmed this when he revealed that he really smoked a joint in “Pumping Iron”, "I did smoke a joint and I did inhale. The bottom line is that's what it was in the '70s, that's what I did. I have never touched it since.” Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/civilized.life/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/civilized.life/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Civilized_Life LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company-beta/10198314/ Website: https://www.civilized.life/

The History of Marijuana in Indiana
 
01:59
Indiana is known for having some of the strictest marijuana laws in the United States, though the state’s history with the drug wasn’t always so harsh, since it started as early as 1821. Hemp was commonly grown in the state at the time, so much so, that some farmers even had two separate patches of hemp, one for clothing and one to smoke after a long day of work. These farmers certainly earned their second patch, because the United States soon launched its "Hemp for Victory" program, encouraging growers to grow more hemp, so by 1943, farmers registered in the program harvested 375,000 acres of hemp. By that time, even though many Indiana farmers were cultivating hemp, the state had already outlawed the plant. In 1913, Indiana prohibited all forms of marijuana in the state. The state law also didn’t stop the pharmaceutical companies from growing, because the local company Eli Lilly listed a number of cannabis products in 1919, prescribed for a variety of ailments including epilepsy, mental health, and more. The state soon adapted some of the harshest marijuana laws, punishing anyone in possession of a single joint with a year in prison. The majority of Indiana voters support legalizing medical marijuana though, so progress is possible.

Things We Love: MedMen
 
02:27
Here at Civilized, there are many things that we love, and one of those many things that we love is MedMen. According to Daniel Yi, the Director of Communications, MedMen is a management company that oversees a number of facilities on behalf of the license holder under the MedMen brand. With the simple vision that cannabis is a consumer product, MedMen began in 2010, two years before Colorado became the first legalized state, so they are pioneers in the cannabis industry, which Yi knows is the next big “tech boom.” There is no other industry that is growing at the pace that the cannabis industry is, “We’re talking about you know, 40% a year, right. I think a couple years ago, by some estimates it was a little less than $5 billion and in the space of two years, it went from $5 billion in sales to $7 billion in sales.” To boast the industry even more, the number of states that legalized marijuana doubled in the 2016 Election. Even though the War on Drugs is still a major threat to further this growth and the industry, companies like MedMen are leading the way in creating a new cannabis culture that is focused on the consumer.

The History of Marijuana in China
 
02:21
China has a history with marijuana that dates back to 2900 BC, when Emperor Fu Xi referenced "ma", the Chinese word for cannabis, as a popular medicine. Other emperors continued to reference cannabis as a plant with "healing" properties, but these healing properties weren’t written into the Chinese Pharmacopoeia until 1500 BC. The text also referenced cannabis for shamanistic purposes, so medicine men were also practicing “magic”, but the crop was mostly used for its strong fibers to make rope, fabric, and paper. Unfortunately, this long history with cannabis was soon forgotten when the People’s Republic prohibited the drug in 1985. The Communist Party-led government outlawed cannabis by classifying the plant as an illicit drug and introducing some of the world’s toughest cannabis laws. Under the new Chinese criminal law, anyone found in possession of marijuana faced the death penalty, though many authorities turned a blind eye to farmers growing their own cannabis. Cannabis became an important source of income for farmers, so they have largely been spared in drug crackdowns, which is why China has quietly become a superpower in the plant’s production and research.

5 Facts About How Cannabis Was Used in the Vietnam War
 
02:25
The Vietnam War was a long, costly, and divisive conflict between the communist government of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, which had help from its principal ally, the United States. The war was especially intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and Soviet Union. With multiple wars and conflicts to fight and keep soldiers safe and protected, the Military, Navy, and Air Force required all resources, including marijuana which many soldiers relied on in Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, cannabis was consumed because the plant grew in the wild in Vietnam. For that reason, many soldiers had their first experience smoking the drug, and it helped them continue fighting, “You get really stoned…. Then, you know, who like, who cares about the war?” Many military leaders also encouraged cannabis consumption when there were problems among their soldiers. Unlike alcohol, which was still the drug of choice, marijuana kept the soldiers mellow and focused, which helped resolve conflicts between men. When the soldiers smoked together, they used an unorthodox method involving a firearm by packing a bowl of marijuana in a shotgun chamber, soldiers smoked long drags together. We do not ever condone attempting this method to smoke, but we do condone smoking marijuana.

5 Things Newbies Should Know About Buying Their First (Legal) Recreational Marijuana
 
02:25
Canada is currently preparing for marijuana legalization while many states in the United States are just opening their doors to recreational cannabis. California welcomed recreational marijuana dispensaries in the new year, so now most of these shops have lines out the door. Most of the patients waiting in line are new to the industry, so there are a number of things these newbies should know about buying their first (legal) recreational marijuana before going to a dispensary. First, newbies should still expect to be carded because even though you don’t need a medical marijuana card, you still need to show some form of identification. Like alcohol, there is a legal age requirement to buy legal recreational marijuana in the U.S., so dispensaries ask for an ID. Before showing your identification, newbies should also expect to wait in line. In many states, regulations require dispensaries to serve one patient at a time so depending on the dispensary, expect to wait in line or the waiting room before purchasing your products. Once you get inside the dispensary, newbies should expect a selection even bigger than they expect. Now that recreational marijuana is legal, new products are being introduced into the market, so dispensaries now have a wider selection of flower, oils, concentrates, edibles, and tinctures. Lastly, ask questions. Budtenders are available to be your guides and answer all questions, even the most simple questions about cannabis, so ask away.

The Weed Nuns Are the Build-A-Bear Of Pot Religion
 
03:54
The Sisters of the Valley is medical marijuana cultivator and business run completely by nuns. Founded by Sister Kate, who compares what they’re doing to Build-A-Bear, “We are like building our own religion… and we’re doing it together. We are trying to combine three things - spirituality, activism, and service to the people.” Just like sisters, the nuns pray, work, and live together while running their cannabis business in a number of departments. The Sisters’ most popular product is their CBD Salve, a multi-purpose topical that alleviates pain and promotes health, “The Salve is a topical, you put it on anywhere you’re hurting, or if you have a burn… I’ll just put a little bit on, I don’t need that much for a burn, and the next day it won’t even be there.” The Sisters have set themselves apart from other cultivators by bringing back the ancient practice of combining spirituality with cannabis.

Roger Stone On The Legalization Of Marijuana
 
03:13
Roger Stone has been a well-known voice in politics for forty years as a top Republican strategist, lobbyist, and longtime advisor to Donald Trump. Stone has also served as a senior campaign aide to three Republican presidents: Nixon, Reagan and, to his regret, Bush. He's known for being outspoken in his lobbying, and in fact, is the subject of the popular Netflix documentary, “Get Me Roger Stone”, which explores the life and career of strategy and public policy. Recently, Stone has had a change of heart on one hot-button issue in modern politics: Marijuana. Stone sat down at this year’s Politicon to discuss the legalization of marijuana, and whether it is in fact just a transfer of wealth from the black market to big corporations. While on the panel, Stone clarifies his stance on the War on Drugs, “It’s important to understand that the War on Drugs was an expensive, ignominious, racist failure.” Now, Stone believes that this is an issue that Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, and progressives and libertarians need to work together to solve. Stone also believes that his candidate, Donald Trump, will honor his promise to allow states to decide whether to legalize marijuana and to reclassify marijuana to take it off Schedule I. Stone was joined by the likes of our very own Derek Riedle, Krishna Andavolu, Kellen Russoniello, Kevin Sabet, Roger Stone, Roy Wood Jr., and Xeni Jardin.

5 Facts About How Cannabis Was Used By Native Americans
 
01:24
Although marijuana is certainly at a high right now with the industry booming, the plant dates back thousands of years. Before marijuana was the popular drug and medicine that it is today, cultures all around the world used and consumed the plant in all aspects of their lives. Though there are a number of different tribes, each with different cultures and religious practices, there is evidence that marijuana was consumed by Native Americans in varying tribes. First, like we do today, Native Americans recognized marijuana’s healing medical powers, “This plant is good for things other than merely making rope. Soaked and softened, the seeds are very good against wind in the stomach… A decoction of the root is good for inflammations in the head or other areas, gout, joint or hip pain, and muscular atrophy.” After recovering from an illness, many people smoked cannabis as well because, “This plant will get you going.” The Native Americans also regarded cannabis as a stimulating agent and psychological aid, fitting with the concept of the peace pipe that those who smoke together make peace. Some claim that the great visionaries packed their sacred pipes with cannabis because smoking increased the intensity of their visions.

The History of Marijuana in Britain
 
02:13
Britain has a history with marijuana that dates back to the 16th century, when cannabis cultivation in Britain had reached its peak. During this time, there was a high demand to build and maintain ships, which created a boom in the hemp market because the strong fibers were crucial for building. By 1533, King Henry VIII actually issued laws requiring British farmers to grow hemp, and thirty years later Queen Elizabeth I increased this amount farmers were obligated to grow. These requirements eventually became difficult to hit because the British were quickly running out of land to grow enough hemp, which actually became a dominating motive behind England’s colonization of the world. By the 18th century, cannabis was gaining attention in the medical world so much that even Queen Victoria was given it by her doctor to relieve pain. This eventually changed when cannabis was outlawed at the turn of the century following the international drug conference in Geneva in 1928, which convinced Britain that marijuana was a threat to society as dangerous as opium. The law did little to stop the recreational use of the drug, because it gained more popularity in the ‘50s when Caribbean immigrants moved to the UK, which flooded into the counterculture in the 1960s. Now, there are no plans to legalize cannabis in the UK, though many are fighting for it.

5 Least Expensive Strains of Marijuana on the Market Today
 
02:08
While marijuana legalization continues to spread, more growers are introducing and creating new strains for cannabis users to enjoy. For users who are on a budget, they can easily purchase low-grade strains or shake for a cheap price, though quality and size of the flowers on the top-shelf are certainly better. Typical top-shelf cannabis can go for as low as $45 an eighth, and the price for the same strain on the bottom-shelf might go for $25 an eighth. Going to a dispensary and choosing what strains to buy is the fun part, even when on a budget and searching for the least expensive strains of weed on the market today. Blue Magoo is one of the least expensive marijuana strains today because it goes for $10.70 a gram. This hybrid is a favorite among patients because it combats a number of symptoms by delivering that familiar high sativa energy with a relaxing indica body high. Pennywise is next in line for least expensive strains because it goes for $10.94 a gram. This hybrid is a high-CBD strain that’s a cross between Harlequin and Jack the Ripper, making more a milder and more relaxing cerebral focused high. Even though these strains don’t have as much THC as the more expensive strains, they create a fun a healing high experience for the cannabis consumer looking to save money.

The History of Marijuana in Russia
 
02:05
Russia has a history with marijuana that dates back to 600 BCE, when the Scythians, a nomadic Indo-European group first introduced hemp to southeast Russia. Like many other ancient cultures, Russia used the plant for its hemp fibers, “Hemp is cultivated throughout the greater part of Russia, and it is one of the principal crops in the provinces of Orel, Kursk, Samara, Smolensk, Tula, Voronezh, and Poland.” The hemp became an important crop in Russia, so by the end of the 19th century, cannabis was a main source of revenue for some. In addition to its strong fibers, Russia was also using cannabis for medical purposes when immigrants moved from Asia to the Russian republics to find the “exotic” cannabis. In the 1970s, most Russians still considered smoking as something alien and strange that only the Russian “bohemia” smoked. Smoking cannabis became even more common among young people after the Soviet Union fell, but it’s still very unlikely Russia will legalize marijuana, according to the Russian Health Ministry’s top drug specialist Yevgeny Bryun.

3 Pros and 3 Cons of Using Vape Pens to Smoke Marijuana
 
02:30
Every marijuana consumer has his or her preferred way of ingesting cannabis whether is be a joint, pipe, bong, vape, or edible. Vape pens are a portable and popular way to consume marijuana, so much so that some users prefer vape pens over any other method of consumption. This form of ingesting marijuana is becoming more common among users because they look just like pens, so they’re easy to transport and use. Consumers can simply keep their pens in their pockets and vape on the go whenever they please. This simplicity and portability isn’t without a glitch though, because like every other smoking method, vape pens have both pros and cons. First, vape pens are a favorite among users because there is no combustion. The flower or oil that is inhaled doesn’t burn, so users don’t inhale any of the toxins associated with smoking. For this reason, vaping is also healthier than smoking, because there’s no risk of inhaling tar or lighter fluid. This lack of chemicals inhaled might also be the reason why vapes pull smoother than smoking. Some vapes also allow users to control the temperature, so they can adjust if it’s too harsh. Even though these vape pens seem very simple to use, they certainly take time for users to adjust to because each battery has different features that make for an interesting high experience.

Prank Bar is Los Angeles' first walk-up bar with floor to ceiling glass doors that reveal the best locale for drinks and food in Downtown L.A. Dave Whitton is one of the creators and founders of Prank Bar, where he hopes to break the stigma surrounding cannabis with terpene cocktails. Terpenes are oils extracted from the cannabis plant that provide flavor and offer the myriad health benefits of THC's non-psychoactive cousin, CBD. Some of these flavonoids include A-Pinene, Linalool, and Beta Caryophyllene, which also provide health benefits like antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, sleep aid, muscle relaxant, and more. Each of the terpenes in Prank's cocktails has either a sedative or energizing effect, which make them the perfect daily-use oil to add that extra bit of flavor to any cocktail.
