How Combining Cannabis with Meditation can Benefit Your Mental Health?

Science’s developing help of contemplation as an adapting/recuperating system gives us the inclination that marijuana and meditation may very well be a characteristic mix. Research has indicated long haul meditators display changes in the mind, and constructive outcomes on compassion, meta-psychological abilities, and wellbeing. Exactly how contemplation delivers these impacts isn’t totally seen, yet these advantages correspond with diminished movement in the mind’s default mode network (DMN). A lower level of activity in the DMN is suspected to imply a mind very calm and still. One of the most important parts of the marijuana plant is CBD, which is thought to have an incredibly soothing impact on the mind. So when taken while meditating, the CBD can enable you to loosen up further, clean up your brain, and have a positive, more profound effect on your reflection.

Meditation directly affects the brain, mainly helping with sorrow and anxiety. However, it appears that cannabis from feminized marijuana seeds may help in making you head towards those advantages a lot faster. It requires investment for meditators to achieve a reasonable dimension of understanding for those advantages to happen, yet with cannabis, the outcome is accelerated.

There are many other ways as well in which this combination will benefit you. Our mind can bear psychological harm because of age, injury, and dependence on certain harmful substances. An undesirable personality implies that you are progressively powerless to emotional wellness issues. CBD shatter decreases subjective harm by advancing neurogenesis – a procedure in which new neurons are created in the mind. These new neurons supplant the old and harmed neurons to guarantee that your brain continues performing great. The following are the conditions that cannabis will help you prevent in the long run.

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is an emotional well-being issue that influences individuals’ translation of the real world. A portion of the manifestations of schizophrenia incorporate daydreams, fantasies, thought issue, and discourse issues. Cannabis has been known to have antipsychotic consequences to the mind. It causes the neurons to effortlessly interface with the goal that they can send proper messages to the body. This empowers you to keep up a hold on reality as the body is conjoined with the mind.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

How-Combining-Cannabis-with-Meditation-3

This is a psychological wellness issue that creates when you experience an alarming occasion. A portion of the side effects includes sleep deprivation, flashbacks, and uneasiness that is serious. Modifying in the wake of encountering a terrifying occasion is typically precarious, regardless of whether it happened quite a while back. This is the reason war veterans still battle to adjust to society long after they have returned home. The treatment of PTSD requires the bringing of serotonin step up in the body as indicated by an examination. Cannabis has characteristics that impact the generation of serotonin in the brain. The raised serotonin levels diminish and in the end fix PTSD.

The Importance of Strains

How-Combining-Cannabis-with-Meditation-2

Strains can have a major effect as far as you can tell. For instance, a few patients report feeling to a greater degree a body unwinding with indica strains. Finding the best strain for your reflection might be a touch of experimentation, however, the advantages unquestionably make it justified, despite all the trouble. Vaping these strains using herbal vaporizers like Firefly 2 plus, etc. can be vey beneficial for mental health.

Sativa strains often bring out merriment and profound reflection in the individuals who let this strain accompany their contemplation. They encourage inspiration, helping you overlook the day’s burdens and spotlight on your training. The best strains for reflection are dependably the ones that make you feel most loose physically and rationally. A decent spot to begin might be the kinds of weed that give assistance with rest. These strains commonly work so well for rest since they can help loosen up your body physically and rationally an extraordinary mix for some nice and calm meditation, too!

This game relays on “honesty” so be honest. Start with both players holding a loaded bong or pipe. Next, ask your competitor a question about them selves, for example “Have you ever J-Walked”? or “Have you ever puked at a party”? Unlike my examples, creativity is the key.

Benefits From Taking A Tolerance Break

Benefits-From-Taking-A-Tolerance-Break

Benefits From Taking A Tolerance Break

I need space.. I need a break from life.. I need a vacation.. I need some time away to bring back life into myself.

stonerdays-space

We all say it, we all do it. If it’s turning off your phone and having a relaxing bath. Spending the money jumping on a plane to Mexico. Every human needs a break. But what about breaks from cannabis? I know a bit weird but it does go hand in hand. Marijuana relieves stress and anxiety. It can make you playful and help you sleep.

So it can be an odd thing to hear someone say take a break from the weed man. When was the last time you took a break from life? Even if it was playing sick from work. Or going on a vacation. Now. When did you last take a break from weed? And I don’t  mean you ran out and had to wait for payday. I mean you consciously decided to not buy weed for a certain amount of time. You actually said to yourself. Time to just reset.

stonerdays-space-addiction

As much as you want to say cannabis is not addictive. It is. Think about this first. It takes 21 days to make or break a habit (addiction). What makes an addiction an addiction? The fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. That’s it. That all an addiction is anything that gives you pleasure. Addiction is like the word success. We tend to put that word to the dollar signs in your bank account the status of your name or your job/career. Anything that really we see in the celebrity rich status. Will Smith is successful. But guess what. So is the garbage man. If the garbage man loves his or her job and sees it as their passion. As their purpose. Then they are indeed successful.

So let’s get back to the word addiction. If it gives you a feeling of pleasure it is an addiction. I am addicted to coffee. It gives me pleasure. It makes me happy. Two very different addictions. But, nevertheless it is still something that gives me pleasure. We could go deeper into the world of addictions positive and negatives, but we don’t need to go down that rabbit hole.

alice-stonerdays

So now that we have established the meaning of addiction. You can probably understand the difference between positive and negative addictions. We can now move on to why we should take the space we need from cannabis just like taking the space we need from life.

Smoke should not enter your body​ – The function of the lungs is to take in oxygen feed our bloodstream and then exhale carbon dioxide. Cannabis smoke dose contain bronchial irritants, tumor promoters and carcinogens. Therefore, long term use can lead to respiratory problems. This can be harmful to people with lung cancer or problems.

Stoner Problems​ – This could be anything from remembering where you put the very item that’s in your hand to impaired speech. In school its a lot easier to get  away with, mainly because teachers are asking you to shut up anyways. But when you hit the real adult life people actually want to engage in conversations with you. At times it’s like your deer in the headlights and that is rather off putting and just makes you look rather immature.

Overload On The Munchies​ – Yes thanks to cannabis the craving to eat food is such a positive thing but also can be such a negative. Positive for newly pregnant women who have a hard time with food due to hormones. People who have problems with wanting to eat food. It can also be great aid to making food. If you love to cook or bake. It can help you become a little more creative. But the negative effects is the over eating and money spending. Put the stoner problems of becoming lazy mix it with the munchies and voila! You have gained 10 pounds in 1 months.

stonerdays-munchies

The Bank Account​ – Constantly spending money to buy weed adds up. From the “black market” to the cannabis shops. It adds up. For many people, $60 is the difference between putting food in their fridge or buying a box of diapers. Life was easy as a kid (teen).  Living at home you don’t pay rent you don’t pay utilities. You freeload off your parents and all you have to do is have a job. Fast Forward to your adult years. Now you have rent, utilities, car insurance, gas, food and maybe you even have a kid or two. That $60 is now looking more like a means to survival then the means for fun.

​You Owe It To Yourself​ – Just like life. You need a break. You need to shut your body down and just enjoy your own space. It’s a self care self love thing. You owe it to yourself to lay off the weed. Just like you would lay off the workouts. Let your body reset for awhile.

stonerdays-keep-smoking

When it’s all said and done time off anything is huge for your mind and body. But remember this, all things in moderation. When it’s time and you’ll know, don’t be afraid to pick up that blunt and take a fat ass rip!

7 Silly Myths About Weed – Presented By StonerDays

7 Silly Myths About Weed – Presented By StonerDays

There is a ton of myths about weed floating around. There have always been debates concerning its associated benefits. A lot of evaluations have been made on marijuana which has brought on board the possible benefits and its life changing effects.

Well grounded facts have confirmed that weed is an essential product for health. It has been widely available in marijuana dispensaries and various seeds shop. But regardless of all these approvals, there are still several myths and rumors about it. And therefore to clear the air, here are the 7 myths about weed.

  1. Weed affects Brain Cells

To be much précised and without any fear of contradiction, weed cannot be tied to the damage of brain cells. The brain cells remain fully protected against any form of damage that could be associated with smoking of weed. This is a fact that has been proven by several studies. Therefore, dismissing any kind of information about weed damaging the brain cells. Moreover, many trains help treat mental instabilities and physical pain.

Myths About Weed

  1. Smoking Pot is highly dangerous for your Lungs

Not even a single form of smoking is good for the lungs’. But comparing any of them, concoctions of marijuana are less harmful than that of a normal cigarette. And this does not end here since the rate of smoking these two is usually very different. For example, an average smoker can smoke a whole pack of cigarettes in a single day while an individual who smokes from a pot can spend the best part of the day smoking. According to a comprehensive study by researchers at RAND Corporation, it was found that more people aged 21′ years are smoking weed from the pot.

  1. Weed is no Longer Strong as Before

According to Ryan Vandrey.Ph.D a professor studying nicotine and cannabis at Johns’ Hopkins University, the dirty and quick summary is that THC concentration in weed is even more than it used to be. A good number of nations around the world have embraced cannabis, and they are selectively breeding plants that have high levels of THC.

Well, it should be understood that none is becoming higher compared to their parents in the 60s because potency will never equal a dose. In other words, current pot smokers smoke a low amount of weed to get high.

  1. You can Never Overdose on Weed

First of all, you need to have a good understanding of what overdose is. It simply means taking a higher amount than normal or the actual amount. And therefore, it is very possible to overdose weed. The symptoms associated with marijuana overdose are paranoia, anxiety, reduced coordination, and dizziness.

Well, it’s not possible to ingest a lethal weed overdose. In the petition in the year 1988, a judge ruled that for one to die he or she must take an approximate of 15,000 pounds of marijuana within a period of 15 minutes. This is an individual weighing 154 pounds ingesting more than 46 pounds of weed into the body. Either way, you can try, but it is difficult to die of weed.

  1. Smoking Marijuana is Cancerous

Well, if cigarettes smoking can be the causative agent of cancer, so is the weed. But this is not the case. Any substance smoked can give way to cancer, although it highly depends on the risky levels or the harmful effects of the substance. Carcinogens found in marijuana are also not really good for health. But they are less when compared to those contained in cigarettes. An individual who engages in smoking the pot smoke is less vulnerable compared to a cigarette smoker. Therefore, the risk is less. In fact, marijuana can help in treating the symptoms of cancer. It can be helpful in managing the side effects of chemotherapy.

7 Myths About Weed

  1. Weed Turns you into A Criminal

The fact is that, despite the ongoing stereotypes, taking a significant amount of weed cannot subject you into a criminal life. It should be noted that there is no verifiable connection between violent crimes and weed. A recent study revealed that weed cannot be predictive of higher rates of crime. On the opposite, it can even be linked to reduced rates of homicide and assault.

Of course, it is very illegal to smoke weed in a state where it’s illegal, although this cannot declare you as being criminal. Therefore, beyond this, there exists no reasonable sense that should make anyone conclude that any criminal activity takes place because of weed smoking.

  1. Weed Can’ Cause Psychosis and Mental challenges

marijuana-clothing-420-stonerdays

Only a very small percentage of the population have to deal with mild and temporary anxiety associated with weed smoking and consumption of microdosing psychedelics. Scientifically, there’s no existing evidence to prove that weed smoking should be tied to causing mental illness.

A study at Emory University found that the states which have legalized marijuana have generally increased the number of users. On the opposite, weed smoking has some calming effects on the body. This, therefore, encourages the feel-good flow neurotransmitters into the brain. In fact, strains like black diamond, tuna kush, etc., relieves anxiety and stress and fights depression.

Conclusion

Weed is an amazing herb which has both positive and negative effects. There are a lot of stories regarding weed smoking. A bigger part of it is very true while the rest is a mere myth and propaganda.

Perception & Time – Cannabis and The Mind: Part 2

cannabis-and-mind

Cannabis and The Mind: Part 2

Time: who even created it? Who decided the numbers on the cock indicated what time it was? This is our second study of cannabis and the mind. 60 seconds in a minute. 1440 minutes in 24 hours. And at least 480 of those minutes are spent in a 8 hour work day. Time is this illusion. We wake up we human and then we go to bed. Wiggling in and out of the hour. Scheduling our lives out to time.

Cannabis and The Mind

The brain working on realms like experiences and memories. studies found – That the brain works on memories. Working with time as a complete concept. Taking memories and creating them into a day. There is a network of cells that bring together the experiences we have. Where we can connect them to a certain time of day. Giving the perception of time. But when really it’s an experience that we are having. Turning into a memory.

This happens in our code decretory. Like a storage unit. Tiny receptors shooting off to. Passing through our brain. Logging each day, week, month and year. Times keep a neat a schedule. As we see the time of 12pm. We can store that moment in our brain, categorize it with the daytime month and year.

So what happens when you smoke weed? Time is now a open vast space of lost memory.

In my recent article on the cannabis and the brain – The brain fires on over 100 billion neurons. Complex series of tracks connecting to other millions upon millions of cell receptors. Telling your body to do the most indiscreet things. Like breathing. Blinking.

Cannabis-And-the-Mind

In 1958 – African Physician Frames Almes. Studied the effects of cannabis extract. Finding that it disorders the time perception. Others called it “altering the state of mind”. For people who smoke weed. We know that time can either speed up while staying slow or create the feeling of time slowing down. For some we could argue that THAt is the exact reason to smoke weed. Losing time and learning to enjoy the small moments that are easily forgotten in our every day-to-day life.

Cannabis and the mind. The memories we store – Help us to adapt to the concept of time.

But does not but not defined on how long the memory happens. Right now your brain is cataloging a memory. The memory is all different for each person but the common one is.

You are reading this article about time. click . clock says 2:57pm. Click. Its Thursday. Click and sunny out. Click.click. Your brain firing off millions of neurons to replay what happened in your day. Working in memory not mathematics. Anyone who has smoked cannabis has been affected by the time lapse. The moments between now and then, that almost become forgotten or lost. Where time is slow or fast but never exact. Some people smoke for this exact fact. Forgetting the moments. Others are freaked out over the idea of losing the time. Some need order. Organized well laid out day. The idea of anything outside that plan can bring instant stress.

Everyone is affected differently by cannabis. It’s hard to nail down the exact amount of cannabis it takes to have this effect happen. But why does it happen. Why do we lose or gain time when we smoke up. One theory suggested that the chemistry in the brain that gets affected. As the THC floods into the brain it activates an overstimulation of neurotransmitters. Glutamate.

Glutamate refers to the anion of glutamic acid in its role as a neurotransmitter: A chemical that nerve cells use to send signals to other cells. It is by a wide margin the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system”

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or delta 9-THC. The main psychoactive ingredient. Some studies suggest that. It does not act as a dopamine trigger- But effects the glutamate signaling in the brain. This chemical reaction can differ between human to human.. Enjoying that cannabis is legal now allowing more information right up front. And less seedy back alley deals. I’ve been looking into different strains and how the effect the mind. Really working with the strains in the way they are intended to. Stay away from time loss in the middle of a work day. Or wanting time loss at the end of the day. In the last month i’ve been enjoying 2 brands.cannabis clothing crop tops

Trail Blazer and Kinky Kush. Cannabis and the mind

These are two combinations on opposite ends of the scale. Tail blazer is a high stimulating combination of City Lights & La Strada. These strains together don’t necessarily affect the time laps in my day. But it does heighten my creativity and my production for the day. Unlike the kinky kush where all i wanted to was sex and then go to bed. And even while high on kinky kush. I often woke up at random parts of the night. Wondering what time it was. Only to find my playlist was still going. iIt was not in fact 5am.. Even though i woke up well rested, energized and ready for the day ahead of me. I felt my sleep was constantly interrupted on the idea of time.

Trail Blazer I couldn’t smoke before bed. It was not a sleepy time strain. It was an active get shit down strain. The perfect smoke for an afternoon list of chores. The second i smoked Trail Blazer and crawled into bed. Instant regret. Instead of sleeping, I was now cleaning my kitchen, doing some yoga, reading. Waking up the next day feeling annoyed and restless. And maybe that is the beginning chemical reaction to slowing down Alzheimer’s and cancer cells.

The human brain. Complex organ that carries over 85 million neurons, the control center for every action. Rather unbelievable cannabis and the mind. To think that as i’m writing this right now my brain is coming up with the words and ideas. Telling my fingers to move across my keyboard. Type the letters to create the word. To hit the spacebar in between each word. While my fingers are typing, my brain is telling my eyelids when to blink, my lungs to inhale and exhale. My toes to twitch and my throat to swallow.

1975 – National Cancer Institute says that THC inhibits the growth of lung cancer tumors. That bone marrow treated with cannabinoids showed a dose dependent resistance to cancer. What is cancer – Disease caused by abnormal cells in the body. To break it down. Cells grow old they die and new cells are born.

When cancer develops. The process breaks down and become abnormal – Eventually leading to a kind of tumor. The body is one weird factory. So how does cannabis inhibit or stop the growth a cancer? It blocks replication of cancer causing viruses.

Think of it like getting a c***** block by a girls best friend in a bar.

So this disconnection will start affecting your everyday life . Like you keep putting your keys in the fridge or food in the bathtub. You forget where you are going and you maybe even forget what a spoon is. In some cases. Forget how to use the bathroom. At least the upside to cancer (most cancer) is there is a cure. You can get a tumor cut out or take multiple radio session and get yourself to “remission”. The point where the cancer is acting positively to any treatment.

Cannabis And the Mind

Alzheimer’s has no cure. It’s a “progressive disease”. It just gets worse with time. BUT cannabis could be the answer. THC has been found to slow down production of the “ beta- amyloid”. The best friend of alzheimer’s. So may just maybe if you did get diagnosed with this. And you smoked a shit ton of weed you could possibly win Alzheimer’s.

Cannabis was brought to Western medicine by Dr. William O’Shaughnessy. Physician for the British East India Company. He learned about the uses of cannabis and created a vast number of experiment to bring truth to the plant. Learning about its many benefits like; Arthritis, Spasticity & Pain. After his discovery the Queens Dr. apparently said that cannabis is in fact the best medicine for period pains. If the queen saying that. Then you think that it has to be true. But the cannabis prohibition continued until 2018.

CB1 CB2 are main focuses when using cannabis for cancer.

4 Ways Marijuana can Help You reach Your Weight Loss Goals

4 Ways Marijuana can Help You reach Your Weight Loss Goals

Marijuana is quickly becoming the go-to fitness “aid” among professional athletes and their amateur counterparts around the world. Boasting numerous benefits for your overall health and performance. Cannabis should definitely become a part of your daily life, and your fitness lifestyle as a whole. However, regular marijuana consumption may be able to help you lose weight and stay on track with your weight loss routine?

Mind you, there is no causal relationship between cannabis consumption and a slimmer physique. But what we can say with a dose of certainty is that marijuana can complement your weight loss journey in a positive way and allow you to reach your goals just a little bit faster.

Here is how you can balance cannabis intake with your fitness regime to maximize weight loss.

marijuana fitness 1

De-stress and minimize cortisol

No matter if you’re exercising to reach a certain goal or compete in the professional realm, or if you’re just hitting the gym to stay healthy, you should know by now that cortisol (the catabolic stress hormone) has a direct causal relationship with obesity. Quite simply, if you stress too much or if you put too much strain on your body, your immune system is going to respond in a negative way.

The result is oftentimes subpar performance, and worst of all, muscle loss accompanied by unwanted visceral fat gain. This is where the calming and mentally-restorative nature of cannabis comes in as your guide and savior. By consuming marijuana in moderate amounts, you can benefit from its de-stressing properties, lower cortisol production, and keep mental angst to a minimum. In turn, you will have improved your chances of keep unwanted fat at bay.

Cannabis and healthy eating

Marijuana is notoriously famous as an appetite-inducing agent, and so you will probably never hear anyone recommend it for weight loss. After all, how are you going to support a healthy diet if you’re constantly hungry? First off, understand that eating junk food is your choice, and your choice alone. If you’re experiencing the “munchies”, that doesn’t mean that you should indulge in sweets and processed foods. Instead, use these cravings to your advantage to stay on track with your eating routine, and get the right amount of calories in every single day.

Use it to focus on healthy foods as well. Use it in combination with other natural weight loss supplements. In order to keep your metabolism high and your calories in check. Remember, don’t use marijuana as an excuse to eat junk food. But rather use it to support your healthy eating habits and maximize your time in the kitchen. Also, don’t forget that lifting weights and doing cardio is taxing on your body. So craving just a bit more food than usual can help you keep precious muscle mass on while losing fat in a steady fashion.

marijuana fitness 2

Eliminate inflammation and build muscle

Speaking of precious muscle mass. Did you know that weight training is one of the best ways to lose unwanted fat? The more lean mass you put on your frame, the more will you emphasize your shapely physique instead of the fat stores on your belly and things. This is due to the fact that muscle mass creates the illusion of having less fat. Also due to the fact that keeping muscle on your body is very energy-demanding.

You want to use this to your advantage and complement your time in the gym with regular cannabis consumption. Why? Because weight training is extremely taxing, and you are bound to get sore one way or another. Instead of lowering the weights or skipping the gym altogether, you can use cannabis as your go-to post-workout recovery tool that will allow you to come back to the gym stronger than before.

Get a better workout in every time

It’s no secret that a pre-workout puff can help you banish performance anxiety. Will even get your head in the game, provided that you skip the psychoactive cannabinoid THC and stick with CBD. The ability to take your every workout to its maximum in a safe way without imposing mental limitations on yourself will give you that much needed boost and help you shed more fat with every workout.

Keep in mind, though, you need to be smart with your consumption if you want to maximize the desired effects. If you want to improve lung function over the long term, you can smoke marijuana as it will not reduce your lung capacity. However, don’t smoke it right before your workout. But rather consume it an hour or half an hour prior to hitting the gym in order to acclimate your body and let the strain enter your system.

In closing

There is no denying that cannabis is a powerful fitness aid for a myriad of reasons. Even though it doesn’t directly melt fat off your body, it does have a positive effect on your fitness lifestyle as a whole. Through its complementary role, marijuana can help you speed up the weight loss process. This helps you stay on track with your weight loss regime.

Over-watering can lead to root rot, this happens when the roots become drenched, or stay in a constant state of dampness because the grower is watering much to frequently. Giving her roots a chance to fully dry between watering cycles is essential and can be achieved through “bulk” watering. Basically making sure you get them nice and juicy during watering then letting them breathe for the next few days.

-Killer Soil Blend

Everything begins from the soil so the composition you use is very important. Tons of cultivators choose to use an original blend that they customize themselves, if this sounds like the path for you should make sure to include a rich potting soil for your base. Bat guano, sand, and a natural mix with things like tree bark and roots to really nourish the crops.
You’ll want to use this mixture for all of your seeds and especially during the pre-plotting phases ass not to stress or shock your babies, less stress equals better smoking plants

The molasses works great for getting a dank aroma and robust taste that smokers crave and love.

CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory properties in it, which makes it ideal to fight against inflammation for your pet. It is common for dogs to suffer from inflammation in the muscles and bones, which may likely cause them problems in the times ahead. This might even curb their movements and put them into confines. You can help your pet get rid of the inflammation by including CBD in their diet on a regular basis.

CBD consists of analgesic properties, which shall enable your dog to achieve a calming effect on the peripheral and central nervous system.

You can help them avoid pain associated with the problem of arthritis with the consumption of CBD as well. According to an article, CBD induces the release of a chemical called anandamide in dogs that suppresses the pain and plays the role of dampening it.

Tackles Anxiety

If you think only humans can experience anxiety disorders, you are in for surprise. Dogs are also likely to suffer from anxiety, stress, and depression according to a study. The most common causes for the onset of anxiety in dogs include traveling to a new location, deprivation of a loved one, and noise. This is where CBD can be put into use, owing to its ability to soothe the nervous system. It stimulates the growth of the happy hormones in the body, which acts as an antidepressant in the dogs.

However, it is still important you consult your veterinarian or a doctor to know about the dosage and other details. One of the best ways by which you can ensure the consumption of CBD by your dog is by feeding them with CBD infused dog treats. Since the CBD is normally derived from the hemp oil for pets, it is safe for the pets due to low levels of THC in it and provides a holistic improvement in health.

CBD is not psychoactive

CBD and THC are one of the main ingredients of the marijuana plants. An article suggests that it is THC that gives the cannabis its psychoactive abilities.

7 Ways That Marijuana Can Help Your Workout

7 Ways That Marijuana Can Help Your Workout

A happy stoner is a healthy stoner, given a little exercise of course. The medicinal benefits of cannabis continue to astound medical and scientific communities around the world. Smoking or vaping the right strain or weed can indeed help your fitness & health on many levels. Here we’ll be taking you through a look at 7 ways that marijuana can improve your workout so that you know exactly how to boost & support your performance.

Runner’s High and the Endocannabinoid System

runners high

The pain relief, euphoria, and escape from anxiety which many feel after a long session of aerobic exercise have been found to be connected to the brain’s endocannabinoid system. The reason that a “high” is only felt after an extensive period of exercise is that these opioid peptide endorphins cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier. By smoking or ingesting low doses of marijuana before a workout, you’ll quicken the time it takes to reach a runner’s high due to fortifying anandamide levels within the body.

Anxiety Relief and Its Effect on Performance

Anxiety impacts everything from our ability to focus on the performance. While anxiety-based performance programs do exist, there has been a shift towards recognizing how debilitating stress and anxiety actually are. Cardiorespiratory rate, fear response patterns, and anxiety which starts building from a pre-competition level can cripple gymnasts. As self-confidence wanes, cognitive anxiety stacks cumulatively which makes it hard to escape the rut. Low doses of cannabis provide anxiety relief which alleviates much of the latent stress holding you back from reaching peak performance.

Pain Mitigation and HIIT

pain mitigating

The benefits of cannabis as a pain mitigating treatment are widespread. Almost 50% of all cannabis users report considerably less pain. High-intensity interval training supplies an athlete with massive gains but the toll that it can take on your body can cause quite a lot of pain. Cannabis use enables you to reap the full cardiovascular and healthy blood glucose benefits of HIIT while minimizing the pain perceived after an intense workout. This useful for both ends of the spectrum.

Improved Recovery During Restful Sleep

improved sleep

Short-term use of cannabis has proven extremely valuable to our quality of sleep. THC has alleviated the dissatisfaction of sleep quantity and quality experienced by insomnia sufferers. These benefits extend to recovery, as the body releases the largest amount of growth hormone during REM sleep. The therapeutic effect on sleep spans sleep onset latency and affects slow wave sleep in short-term use. Our REM sleep cycle is largely blocked by latent anxiety. Cannabis helps us sleep deeper for longer, giving our body the optimal time to release growth hormone. The only other time the body releases a significant amount is directly after an intense/extensive workout.

Cannabis, Terpenes & Inflammation

cannabis inflammation

Every workout causes a degree of damage to your muscles and tissues. Inflammation then arises which notifies the body that it needs to begin its repair process. Your muscles and tissues then grow back fitter and stronger. A slight degree of inflammation is inevitable and essential to triggering the response. From strains to sprains, torn muscles to ligaments, inflammation is at the root of many exercise injuries.

Athletes often integrate antioxidant and anti-inflammatory foods and therapeutics to help their workout. Whether you take an ice bath or load up on ibuprofen to ease joint and muscle pain, easing inflammation always helps. Even conditions stemming from inflammation such as arthritis find relief from cannabis’s therapeutics. Regular use of marijuana will lower inflammation while also mitigating pain, working perfectly for anyone who exercises regularly.

Cannabis and Temperature Regulation

temperature regulation

THC interacts with the temperature effects of the body causing hypothermic action which resembles that of diazepam. Your body’s natural reaction to small dosages of THC helps you maintain a lower core heat for longer. Whether you’re doing the whole circuit or pushing a HIIT cycle hard, the cooling effect on your body is invaluable to gains and recovery.

Enthusiasm, Energy & Focus

Certain strains of marijuana particularly good varieties of Sativa like black diamond strain, blueberry strain, etc.are excellent for boosting focus and motivation. Uplifting strains will give you the drive that you need to get your workout going. Many people resort to arming themselves with a range of supplements. Yet all that top athletes, mass builders, and lifters have proven to need is a range of good anabolic steroids and a way to grow marijuana naturally. The Phytocannabinoids, cannabinoids, and THC present in marijuana help your body maintain energy levels.

Grow Your Own

Grow marijuana naturally and you’ll be rewarding yourself with a healthy supplement to your workout and total wellness. With an average time of from seed-to-harvest of just three months or less when growing hydroponically, you can start reaping the many benefits without a need to source a supplier or drive to a marijuana dispensary.

Weed and Sex: Lose your mind and find your pleasure

Sex and Weed Lose your mind and find your pleasure

Weed and Sex “Lose your mind and find your pleasure”

Everything is heightened when high. Sense of smell, touch & eyesight. It could be sunset and you may have smoked enough of the herb that you need your shades on. Colors are amazing and music hits your soul. So right it has you hitting the replay button more than your neighbors like. Sex and weed. Hand in hand. Not even a question. But whats the make up behind why it’s so damn good? The human brain is the command center of the nervous system. It contains over 86 billion nerve fibers and a trillion connections. You probably know the brain to have 4 sections. The frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital. So where is sex located in the brain? located in the limbic system. the euphoric and pleasurable zone.

Did you know there has been testing done giving humans orgasims by touching different parts of their brain?

The brain is the largest sex organ ( sorry boys dicks don’t count) controlling the biological urge. All thoughts and feelings. The act of sex (emotions feelings) comes from many different parts of the brain. The most known chemical reactions to sex. Euphoric pleasures comes from the limbic. The limbic is responsible for the key functions of the human body. Which can also be apart of a cannabis and human creativity.

Sex and Weed Lose your mind and find your pleasure

No doubt that sex becomes quite a complicated action and can be am extremely hard action for many people.

Many women experience “ painful penetration” or are even “ allergic” to their partners. This allergic reaction to their partner can come in a few forms but the most common is. Allergic to ones sperm. Although it is quite uncommon it is also very common. Men can have erectile dysfunction and the most uncommon ( but again quite common) can ejaculate early. Bringing it around to how weed plays apart in sex. This has been quite an unscientific scientific factor for many Drs. And specialists.

Word of mouth. Is the he said she said when it comes to the missing equation of weed in the bedroom. Many say they feel a deeper connection to their partner others say once they smoke, they lose all ability to perform the easiest tasks. Others say that it helps them relax making sex more enjoyable if they do happen to experience a sexual dysfunction. There is a company that does make weed lube. Its weed and coconut oil to help make sex more pleasurable for women who experience painful penetration by losing/ relaxing the walls.

Because the limbic system is the control center for all emotions and weed is a trigger to emotions

Where you can have the greatest time of your life or the worst time in your life. It really becomes a he said she said. In this case my suggestion is “ a little goes a long away”. Find your perfect high. If that’s 6 blunts and a bong toke or a small hoot off a one hooter. Find your perfect high. Begin the act sooner than later. While the energy is high. Where it may be a challenge for you to be full focused on one act at a time. You may enjoy the fact that sex allows you to have many actions going at once. Use this to explore your body. Work with hot and colds. Maybe this is the time to add in some toys.

The great thing about weed is that it does allow you to “ lose your mind”. In the sense of it allows you to forget and just live. This might be the perfect time to explore your sexual fantasies. Instead of letting the “loss of focus” hinder you. Use it in a positive way and let it allow you to explore different parts of yourself or your partner all at once. A hand to the foot while your mouth explores a nipple may create a new feeling for you. If you happen to not like something. Let it go. Again because of the nature of weed and the lack of focus it can bring. Letting go of an action that did not serve you can be easier high then not.

If you experience anxiety around sex – For whatever reason – Maybe it is a past trauma leaving a sour taste in your mouth. Adding weed into the bedroom could help you relieve that unwanted tension. If this is you, then you may want to explore weed and sex in a slow movement way. Smoke a little with your partner again finding your perfect high relax sip some tea ( i suggest a nice calming tea) Allow your partner to explore your body with a nice erotic massage. While the muscles relax you may feel yourself feeling lighter/carefree. Allowing your lady parts ( or manly parts) relax, and do what they were made to do. Create a natural lubrication to make penetration easy and enjoyable. Or. Increase blood flow to the penis.

There are many many different ways you can add weed into the bedroom.

And many ways to create a wonderful experience for you and your partner. The beautiful part of weed. Is that it allows you to “ lose your mind”. As an artist myself i can 100% say that once you find your perfect high anything on weed is simply more enjoyable. I am personally loving the fact that weed is now legal in Canada. Because it lets me explore myself with the different varieties of weed. Putting each strain to action on the different parts of my brain.

Sex is art. It is the purest form of art you can have. It’s an expression of yourself.

Being able to lose a sense of stress associated with having a peak performance during sex. Is a weight off many people’s shoulders. From porn stars to mum and dad just trying to enjoy a night with no kids.

The Ancient History of Cannabis

the-ancient-history-of-cannabis

Weed Let’s Get Real

Let’s face it. We all get caught up in the hype of calling it some romantic name like cannabis, marijuana ganja. We all get caught up in the cannabis jobs. We end up thinking that what we are doing is so special. That no one has ever done with before. We hold are heads high roll the prettiest blunts, pack the biggest bowls and blow clouds the size of hurricanes for the world to see. Our ultra ego says. Hey check me out I’m fucking awesome. But really…. Its just weed. And thousands of people have been doing what we are doing today years and years before us. And even before some of us were even created. So why do we think we are so special. Why do we think that right now. We are the first humans to ever think of making a rose joint. Or a 6 foot bong? Why do we forget that we are only one small part of a very large puzzle?

the-ancient-history-of-cannabis

Alter ego. Every human that walks this earth has thought that they are the shit. That they are doing something that no one else has ever thought of. And we praise ourselves. We praise ourselves for our creativity, our drive, or vision. We walk with an entitlement. And are we wrong to do so? No not at all. Our alter ego is what people use to get to top. It’s what feeds our souls. It’s what encourages us to create a world worth fighting for. Without it. We would all walk the world as the person next to us. Identical. But we must not forget the people before us who created the path that we decide to walk on. And add to. We know the names of Cheech & Chong basically the godfathers of cannabis. We know Snoop Dogg, WIz Khalifa ( who has his own strain of weed) & Bob Marley. But who are the great ones before them?

Chinese Emperor Shennung: Found cannabis in 2727 B.C. The name transfers to “Divine Farmer ” or ” Agriculture God”. Quite cliche that he found cannabis. He was known for his medical work in herbs, plants, agriculture and died from his own experiments on himself. It is said he ate a stem of a yellow weed and his intestines burst before he could drink his antidote.

the-ancient-history-of-cannabis herdodtusGreek & Roman: Translation from Latin to old Arabic to old English gets a little confusing. Dates from 500B.C to 350 A.D. It can be hard to tell what exactly they were referring too in the scrips. BUT nontheless there are a few scripps from the ancient texts that do come back to “cannabis”.

HERDODTUS ( THE GREEK HISTORIAN 490-425B.C) He was the first to talk about cannabis in western literature. But the down fall. He was also the most misquoted. 

PLINY( THE ELDER 77AD) – Most known for his work with cannabis. He found it as an healing remedy for muscle pain & headaches.

Africa: In my research i did not come across a name for who found cannabis in Africa. But what i did find is that it was definitely used. Not only was it used but it was sold at local farmers markets & you could find postcards with paintings of people holding and smoking cannabis. Where did it all go wrong? another topic of another day. Evidence from 1300 BCE – Pollen collected from lake sediments and hemp fiber found in tombs. Cannabis found in Madagascar as old as 300 BCE and all the way to Kenya 1500 CE.

As for us not going into 2019 ( article written in December 2018). We are NOW just making cannabis legal. We are NOW just creating medical cannabis for many countries around the world. It seems so surreal that you could walk around a famers market and pick up hemp without a care. Or buy a postcard with a person smoking it up. Write “happy birthday blaze up”. We seem to forget who the real FATHERS of cannabis are and what they did to bring it to life. As we continue to legalize cannabis world wide lets not forget who were the founders of the plant and what they did for us. And the struggles they overcome. Lets step our ego back and pay some homage to the fathers before us.

Well don’t worry if you haven’t because we have put together the perfect New Year resolutions list for you. Let us know what you think in the comments below. Enjoy!

MARIJUANA-STONERDAYS

#1- Smoke Marijuana strains you’ve never tried before (New Strains)

When you’re a certified Stoner it can be easy to get stuck in a Mary Jane rut so to speak. Smoking the same flower strains day in and day out, dabbing the same honey resin, and feeling the same awesome high. Marijuana is all about chemistry down to the science, so knowing what works well with your body is key, but what if, just what if, you could find a strain that not only speaks to your hyperactivity but turns it into creativity while at the same time curving depression and placing you gently right where you need to be, In your own skin. Well there is one! Starting off 2019 getting better acquainted with members in the Cannabis family feels like a great jump start.

#2- Gravitate towards healthier snacks when stoned

MUNCHIES-STONERDAYS

The Munchies Monster is a real entity and does not live under your bed, but inside those nifty green Med bottles you get from the dispensary. More centered on being health conscience than body conscience this season, reach for the trail mix Instead of the cream filled jelly Donuts this time. That doesn’t mean cutting yourself off completely from Candy Land, just cruising past it on some occasions instead of ALWAYS stopping for dinner. Eating endless veggies with ranch or a tomato sandwich until you pop instead of fast food could be the energy booster you need to truly conquer this year, and more to come.

#3- Practice your Craft when high

CRAFT-STONERDAYS

One of the best qualities of weed is how it enhances our creative mind making every task an interesting one. When we take the time to use MJ as a conductor to fuel our crafts and passions it truly opens doors unimaginable. Making time to relax and do what makes you truly happy when you’re experiencing a ground breaking Stone, is something we should all make room for as often as we possibly can. Tinker with your bird houses, paint those model cars, re-vamp your business outlook, and so much more. You never know, your Sativa stash might just end up paying for itself in due time.

#4- Attend a Festival or Concert

FESTIVAL-STONERDAYS

Us Stoners have a deep connection with music, and somehow we effortlessly embed them into our own unique culture no matter what walk of life you’re from, the common denominator being Sweet Cheeba. Make an effort to stack some cheese with intentions of buying dope tickets to a festival or concert to one your favorite artist or bands. Buying new and innovative life experiences and building life memories can sometimes feel more fulfilling than purchasing material stuff. If music doesn’t tickle your cerebral pickle try a museum exhibit, or maybe even a play. Any social gathering you feel would hold your attention while your high.

#5- Start your own Grow Operation

GROW-WEED-STONERDAYS

If you had a bag of sticky for everytime you mentioned the need to grow your own bud you’d be swimming in it. Well get to it Pot Heads! There’s no better time like the present… Or future rather so this season get some soil in those pots! All it takes is time, some Stonerdays research, and the will to develop the green thumb that will nourish your green lung. Dedication to the vision is what moves mountains so talk to your plants people!!

#6- Roll a Blunt every day

ROLL-BLUNT-STONERDAYS

Do what you have to but get er’ done! This is one Stoner resolution that is sure to benefit you the entire year. If you’re rolling a blunt everyday, you’re smoking a blunt everyday, what more could you ask for? You’ll begin to see progress in your Rolling skills in just a matter of a few months not to mention the feeling of accomplishment you’ll feel knowing you were high 365 days out of the year. Get rolling friends!

#7- Start one, or add new pieces to your Smoking Accessories Collection

BONG-STONERDAYS

Put a little spice back into your smoking sessons by creating a shrine so to speak. Adding colorful and useful peices to your collection creates a new vibe when you’re getting lifted and is always sanitary especially for the social stoner. Bubblers and bongs are a great way to really taste your flower, not to mention grinders, Vapes, and pipes. All these cool Mary Jane toys waiting to be chose by you this smoking season

#8- Smoke in a new Place

NEW-SMOKE-SPOT-STONERDAYS

Let’s start off, as well as finish the year with a bang. Smoking someplace new doesn’t necessarily mean with others, this resolution could become a great Solo project for you. Getting blitzed and taking the time to explore the city around you or simply your back yard. Emerge from the batcave ( your basement) if only for a while and smoke outside or in a different room in your house even. It’s been said that moving your “get high” place also changes the “get high” effects. New environment equals a new altitude.

#9- Learn a new MJ fact every day

NEW-LEARNING-STONERDAYS

This is definitely a win-win resolution for the Cannabis lover. It’s important that we stay educated and informed on Mary Jane in every aspect. As mentioned before weed is all about chemistry and this includes body chemistry as well. The more you know about the bliss you’re inhaling into your being the healthier you can be as an all around productive person.

#10- Start using the “Buy a Bag, Save a Bag” Method

SAVE-MONEY-STONERDAYS

If you’ve never heard of this particular method it’s just as simple as it sounds; whenever it’s time to purchase your next THC products the amount you’re spending in cash, also save that same dollar amount. Put it away for a rainy day and let it accumulate the entire 2019, not only will you add a touch of discipline into your bud spending habits, but it’s also a great way to see how much money you ACTUALLY spend on your number one lady Mary Jane.

Best Games Fro Ganja Lovers Presented By StonerDays

BEST-GAMES-FOR-GANJA-LOVERS

Best Games Fro Ganja Lovers Presented By StonerDays

Just as amazing as it sounds there are ways to make getting stoned even more interesting and upbeat. Keep scrolling to unveil some of the coolest Ganja Games perfect for any stoner gathering!

Puff Puff Pass

Yes, we realize this is the universal stoner code for smoking with others, but we also know that very few actually follow this code word-for-word. Most stoner circles are constant and solid and depending on what circle you’re walking into, you already know how “y’all get down” so to speak. Puff Puff Pass is a game played exactly how it sounds but in fast motion as well. This consists of only taking two hits per turn and passing as fast as your lungs will let you. You’re sure to be surprised how high you and your buds will be just halfway through the blunt. Through the haze of chronic coughs and laughs you see smiles and swirls of light so beautiful you might just roll another one.

Hold the Hit or “Train”

This is one that can be played with just two stoners and also very simple in the way it’s played. When you hit the bong, blunt, joint, etc… you do not exhale, but hold your smoke for the duration of the next person’s hit before you release. The game continues in this way around the entire cypher until shapes, lines, and boundaries are no longer a thing. A classic game of “Hold the Hit” will have you in a blitzed up head high before you can realize what you’ve done. Releasing gusts of smoke and air through chokes that sound exactly like a locomotive train. All ABOARD!

Stoner Stiff Face or “Don’t Smile”

We’re all guilty of playing a good game of whoever smiles first loses.. well this is that on a whole different plain. Mary Jane has the ability to make you smile even when you weren’t expecting it which is one of the many things we love about her. Chilling out getting faded at the same time trying your hardest not to move your facial muscles and raise your endorphins is just as kick-ass as it sounds. The bud is blazed and as you watch the smoke waft closer to the ceiling fan you feel the vibe has just shifted… You look over to your stoney homey seeing the high dash across her features too. Once the two of you lock eyes it’s over, you loose! But the smile engraved on your mug as well as hers is that of two number one winners.

Video Games

Hell yeah! Video games hits the Ganja Games list last but not least. Any console quickly becomes the gateway to different dimensions when paired with THC, allowing you to surpass levels with ease, even on difficult mode. Experiencing a stone alone is sometimes just what the doctor ordered, taking the time to meditate indoors and letting the exhale really take a hold of your inner being.

Cannabis Jobs Are The New Dream Job!

Cannabis Jobs Are The New Dream Job!

For the everyday cannabis enthusiast, working in a pot shop is the dream job.  Surrounded by the best of green, being able to educate others on your passion.  The dream job. When Canada legalized cannabis back in October. Many  Canadians across the country took up careers in cannabis. Just like any  business, there is more to the industry than meets the eye. Like an iceberg. 90% of  the iceberg is underwater, we only see 10% of the actual structure in front of us.  How much are we not seeing when it comes to cannabis jobs? And are you  applying for the right job for you and your lifestyle.

Starting out the people we see first, the people behind the counter. The people  who greet your happy ass right off the get go, and put a smile on your face. It’s  the people who say thank you, hand you your legal bag of green and may even  shake your hand. It’s the people who remember your name, your face, your  favorite strain, your story. It’s the retail people. This job is for the people who are  people oriented. Able to keep a smile on their faces 8 hours of the day. For the  people who love to put themselves in the public eye, out i the open.

Retail jobs aren’t  for the faint of heart. Its long hours of constantly pleasing people. Knowing when  you cannot win an argument and solving problems before a problem happens.  But yet without the people behind the counter a store wouldn’t really function. If  you are looking to get your foot in the door. Retail is a great way to start, the pay  is good the job is good. Your hands on learning without going to school. And of  course this can all lead you to some pretty high end jobs. Where you may or may  not need schooling.    As for retail experience – When it comes to cannabis the better knowledge the  better chance at receiving a job offer. But you can find some businesses are more the happy to take on a willing and dedicated individual to train. But with  standard retail job. Having some experience in sales, POS (point of sales) and a  good retail reference is asked for.   And you can’t forget about the AGLC. The cannabis licensing stamp of approval.  Basically saying that you are not an immature 18 year old (or older) and can  handle working in this kind of environment. With the right experience you could  land one of the higher job titles. Manager, shift manager, key holder, assistant  manager or if you played your cards right you could even have the title. Store  owner.

Retail isn’t the only job that is booming in  this amazing industry. If you have a green  thumb, you may want to look into being a  clipper. In other words a marijuana  trimmer. For this sweet smelling job, you  have to be someone who likes getting  their fingers sticky. This is the job for the  person who would rather sit back behind  closed doors out of public eye. Touch,  smell and eye f*** every blessed bud that  comes his or her way.And with grace, ease  and skill trim down.

This is definitely the job for the person who is looking to gain the skills and  knowledge of growing and or starting their own cannabis crop. This is a great hands on learn as you go job. But it doesn’t hurt to have a little knowledge in how  to trim, how to handle properly, how to accurately weigh and not to mention a  long day at a “ tedious task”. Mental preparedness for this job.   If your shooting for the big time jobs. And i don’t mean working for anyone. I  mean working for yourself. Owning starting and creating a business. This is what  people dream of doing. But can’t actually do because of the hard work that  comes with owning and creating their own business. This is the job for the  creators. For the visionaries. For the people who are sick of working for someone  else. For the people who want to say “ This is MY business”.  If this is your dream you can do it.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you you cannot. But  this take a little more than just being people friendly, trimmer smart or manager  qualified. This job is about being able to see what your target market needs, what your special gift is and how to stand out amongst all the corporate owned  businesses across the country.  Are you online based? Small town based? Do you specialize in one strain only?  Do you specialize in a new waky form of trimming that makes the bud pop out so  hard it makes you cream your panties? There are a few hoops you have to get  through to get to the top of the charts in the business world. But if you have what  it takes you can rise to any corporate owned business and come out as number  one. You have to have that something special that no one else has. That drive  that push that uniqueness to bring to world.   Like finding any carrier. Knowing what you want out of your job, what your willing to put up with and the hours you want to work.

All play a factor on finding the perfect job for you and your lifestyle. Once you narrow it down to the perfect fit, you now have the pleasure of finding the
perfect business to work for. Or take over. Somethings to think about when you begin your search. Are you looking to relocate? Are you willing to
relocate? Are you looking for a large company? Or would you rather work for a  small locally owned store where you see the same 5 people every day?

Choose  wisely my friends. Your job is where you spend a good 80% of your life.

Cannabis & The Quality of Self Awareness

Cannabis & The Quality of Self Awareness | Stonerdays

Natural healing, home remedies, organic eating and all around health awareness can be found all over Earth. In today’s society tiny homes are the new frenzy, bus living and now hobbit homes! Over the years, people have used cannabis to help themselves reach a state of creativity with beautiful sounds of music, art and dance. Has giving them the anxiety relief instead of harmful pills.

Spirituality and Cannabis

Many yogis, spiritual believers say that it “ helps them become one with self and the universe”. Everything has its own frequency and if we truly listen and let go of our stubborn ways, we can learn many valuable lessons. In turn giving us all a better direction in life. I myself am a spiritual believer. I believe in karma.

Spirituality and Cannabis stonerdays

From the words of the Bible the 10 commandments “Do unto others as you would have them do to you”. in other words treat others as you would have them treat you, easy enough and yet most people have the hardest time with this simple concept. I am often told how forgiving and kind I am, as though this were a bad quality to have. Smoking cannabis helps me forgive. It takes aggression towards an action, slows it down and allow me to sort through each emotion without acting on impulse. This in itself can help with relationships, work and personal health.

When I practice yoga while high. I forget about what my body should look like, and focus in on what my body feels like it needs. Yoga like dance is very in-tuned with personal alignment. I find that adding cannabis to yoga helps me tune into myself and allows me to move the way I feel I need to move. Connecting to every nerve, sound, color, and thought. After all, each natural bodily function is in its own sense a brain.

Cannabis and The Arts

It’s not shocking to hear that an artist smokes cannabis. It really just seems to be apart of that lifestyle. Smoke weed, drink coffee. smoke cigarettes. drink wine. art. It’s the vision of the painter sitting at their blank canvas. With a cigarette hanging out of their fingers and a bottle of wine on the floor deep in thought. But there is a method behind their madness. Dr. Alice Weaver Flaherty, a neurologist. Found this.

– People with a higher creativity, end up having more activity in their frontal lobe than 55 others with less creativity-

Cannabis and The Arts Stonerdays

Other researcher have led to these findings. When it comes to music you can discover hidden beats that you may not have heard if you were not high.

Cannabis and Work

Now that cannabis is legal in most states and the legalization date of Canada. October 17 2018. There are places of business that do accept smoking at work. Or don’t have a problem with associates being high at work. But just like alcohol or any Dr. prescribed medication. You need to be smart about t. If you plan to start or continue smoking before work or while at work. There are plenty of job opportunities where cannabis is
welcomed and almost encouraged. Other than working in your local retail shop or learning cannabis though cannabis education classes. You can enjoy your favorite plant while working your own job in your own home.

Cannabis and Work Stonerdays

Entrepreneur – maybe something you would want to explore.

Cannabis and Health/Fitness

The munchies – The upside and downside of being stoned. The sudden need to eat everything. I have noticed how much i enjoy preparing and cooking foods. Turning the finished dish into art on the plate. Already being a creative person i enjoy this time. Also practicing health, I enjoy the change in taste when i’m stoned and eating the same meal time and time again.

Cannabis and Health Fitness Stonerdays

I get more experimental with spices, i’m currently playing with the taste of pear. As for fitness – Moderation is key. I wouldn’t suggest taking a massive bong toke or 4 and then hitting a heavy session. For myself, I found that cannabis helped me zone out when i went for a run, but made me look like an idiot in the gym. I would get to into my music and start dancing.

Cannabis Sex & Beauty

Cannabis Sex & Beauty Stonerdays

Yes! yes to it all. Again and again and again. It’s a feeling that is quite indescribable. It puts the spiritual aspect and the arts together. Creating a feeling that is pure euphoria. And every time can be different. Its beautiful. I highly suggest playing with cannabis and the bedroom. For the green thumb. Cannabis is beautiful. The crystals on the leaf, the bushy or the tall. The colors. Green purple, brown, blue. There is a beauty in cannabis. But can it also make you feel beautiful? I smoked a j took a shower and then applied my makeup. I felt really really good. Beautiful yes. I don’t quite know if it was the relaxation in my face the effortless motion of my mascara brush? The fact that i really didn’t care too much to try. But what what ever it was. I found i had an easier time with make up when i was high then when i wasn’t. I struggled with my eyeliner, mascara, face powder. Everything was concentrated and frustrating. Even though i felt pretty. There is something relaxing about cannabis when it comes to beauty.

Top 10 Halloween Munchies Presented By StonerDays

10-HALLOWEEN-MUNCHIES

Top 10 Halloween Munchies Presented By StonerDays

StonerDays presents the Top 10 Halloween Munchies. Being a stoner means being accustomed to having the munchies. Munchies, the subtle and sometimes aggressive hunger that hits your entire solar plexus. So naturally us seasoned smokers already have our go-to’s on deck, or ready to soar to the store with no list needed. Why is that you might ask? Well because your high, but this mouth watering study should shed some fluorescent light on the subject. Take a look at a pot heads most beloved candies.

halloween-munchies

#1- SOUR GUMMY WORMS- A staple in almost everyone’s childhood and a tokers best homie. The tangy crunch of granulated sugar hits your flavor receptors and wakes them the funk up! Very similar to the look and feel of the THC crystals gleaming on the prettiest sativa nug. Once the sour fades you’re left with a sweet chewy treat.

#2- REESE’S CUPS- There might not be a better combination than chocolate and peanut butter… EXCEPT both of these paired together with Mary Jane of course. Going beyond the taste for a second the economics make sense; butter cups are thick, creamy, and somewhat filling. Cop yourself a king size and you might find yourself satisfied and skipping that extra trip to the 7/11… more cash for Garcia Vegas to start the process from scratch.

#3- MARSHMALLOW PEEPS- Multi-Colored and ready to brighten your day with soft pillow like goodness, it’s the unforgettable Marshmallow Peeps; and they’ve earned they’re spot on this list. These goofy, gooey, pastel pals are perfect for any get high session.Don’t make the mistake of limiting these sweet treats to only decorative baskets. Bong rips become a bridge between stoner and peep as you witness your munchies fly out of the package and into your soul.

pixy-stix-halloween-munchies

#4- PIXY STIX- Obviously a pure sugar candy with all the flavors of your favorite Kool-Aid will make you smile as well as exhale a big “OH YEAH”. Straight to the point thinking is preferred when we travel to the moon. Pixies allow you to grab, tear, pour, and enjoy.

Chronic Class On Halloween Munchies

Cannabis Sativa is multi-dimensional almost literally, having many properties and more active ingredients than just THC. One of these being cannabis sugars. Cannabis naturally has a small percentage of sugar within the bud. When we ingest these sweets they have a reaction with these sugars as well as other cannabinoid receptors in your stoned system letting you know these snacks are not only delicious but decadent, not just blueberry but bliss. Depending on your strain of the day your taste buds will dance to the indica, sativa, or hybrid munchies; stoner scientists unite!

#5- JELLY BELLIES- These beans are not the Mexican kind but will jump straight into your belly. Jelly Bellies have been a chronic favorite since the 1860’s. Jelly Bean began manufacturing and pushing for these hand full of happiness to be shipped to the soldiers during the Civil War. Toke up don’t tote guns, munch treats instead of shooting up the streets. Jellies come in multiple flavors and special edition variety bags. Get as faded as you’d like because you’re safe, you’ll never trade your life savings for beans… You’ve already got the best ones!

#6- NERDS- By now we know nerds are awesome and the candy is no exception. Like yin and yang the link and purple pebble like crunch is balanced, giving off mostly sweet and at the same time tangy sensations. Some pour them down their throats all at once. Others suck every ounce of goodness until all that remains are the tiny translucent nuggets and memories.

#7- HARIBO GUMMY BEARS- Purchasing a bag of these bears and a bag of Kush simultaneously is second nature. The perfect representation of Candy Land meets Willy Wonkas trippy factory come to life and in your loft. Gummy bears sing and scream on the way down as you smile in a Nirvana like high state. Munchies that catch your eye while captivating your tounge sensors.

#8- CRISPY M&MS- A rare delicacy that’s hard to spot on the shelves these days, but worth the extra detective work. M&Ms are a staple for most chocolate lovers and these crunch with the goodness of Whoppers. Crispy and colorful and all one flavor but far from a monotone bite. It’s no wonder Detroit stoners will loose 2-10 minutes at the grocery search for the family size of this classic.

#9- STARBURSTS- Ganja takes the body and mind to infinity and beyond. Every stoner is their own honorary astronaut, Buzz Light-year in the flesh. Starbursts just by the name take you to foreign nebulas and galaxies of energy. Endlessly juicy and tropical, perfect to take on hikes and beach trips every stoner and their Mama loves Starbursts. It’s one of those rare occasions when you can say every flavor tastes like a dream. Pocket size and ready to party.

halloween-munchies-airheads

#10- AIR HEADS- We are them and they are us! Stoners, aka Pot heads, aka Air Heads love these harder than we love melted cheese on toast. Air Heads have the possibility of being manipulated into so many combos it’s ridiculous; suck, chew, roll into a ball, hot dog, intertwine flavors, virtually limitless possibilities. The mystery flavor pairs well with any flower, concentrate, or vape choice. Low, exotic fruity notes will carry you to a destination far beyond the cerebral reach.

How CBD Hemp Oil Relieves Stress

How CBD Hemp Oil Relieves Stress

How CBD Hemp Oil Relieves Stress

Scientists are discovering new therapeutic uses for CBD Hemp Oil almost daily, with headline news announcing their findings on a regular basis. Research concludes CBD safe to use for a variety of medical conditions, and most especially, for stress relief. Stress is a killer, the underlying cause of most modern diseases today. It is possible to eliminate it safely and effectively.

Understanding Stress

Stress is the body’s reaction to any particular request made on it. By definition, it is not synonymous with tension or apprehensive pressure. Stress provides the opportunity for us to express our energies, our talents, and our pursuit of happiness. To much stress can cause sickness and depletion, as well, either physically or mentally. It can wreak havoc on the body and mind, leading to medical illness.

The most important factor to remember about stress and anxiety is that certainties, such as sure structures in our lives, remain fundamental and ordinary. They just become overwhelming. So, now that you know exactly what stress is and how it works, we can talk about how to get rid of stress naturally and without any harmful side effects, such as those commonly associated with anti-anxiety medications.

How CBD Hemp Oil Relieves Stress

Understanding Cannabidiol, or CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the most important cannabinoids found in marijuana plants. There are over 100 of them. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and cannot make you high. This organic compound is all about relaxation, but without any of the inebriating effects on body or mind. You will just feel calm, content, and very relaxed.

The Effects of Cannabidiol on Stress

The biological mechanisms that are responsible for controlling fear, stress, mood, anxiety, and other emotional reactions have been the sole job of specific neurotransmitters, called monoamines. While certain monoamines, such as norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, play a crucial role in regulating mood and anxiety, most drug therapies targeting these neurotransmitters are not particularly viable.

Recently, science has been uncovering the role of other neurochemical systems, including bioactive lipids, peptides, and cytokines in emotional behaviors. By analyzing the workings of bioactive lipids, we start to discover the essential role of the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, in responding to fear and stress triggers, as well as the role that CBD can play in supporting the endocannabinoid system.

Surprisingly to many, the scientists in one particular study concluded that the ability of CBD to relieve stress is largely due to neurogenesis. In English, neurogenesis is the process of developing new neurons in the brain. The study showed that consuming CBD increases neurogenesis and hippocampal progenitor proliferation. It also promotes cell cycle progression.

More importantly, CBD imitates the proliferative effect seen when cannabinoids activate the endocannabinoid system’s CB1 and CB2 receptor cells. It is also a must-note that the non-psychoactive nature of CBD makes it a natural anti-stress molecule. Researchers recorded these findings after administering 30 milligrams of CBD per kilogram of bodyweight to participants two hours before putting them through an especially stressful event.

CBD Helps Save Lives!

CBD hemp oil is a marijuana extract with an abundance of health benefits, including stress relief, inhibition of psychosis and pain relief. Science proves CBD safe and without any side effects. It is fully capable of relieving all stress and anxiety, and most effectively too.

Canadian Cannabis Laws – The First G7 Country To Legalize

canadian-cannabis-laws

Canadian Cannabis Laws- The First G7 Country To Legalize 

BIll C-45 was passed to the house of commons early July- it will be the first of many passes between the two parties as Canada gets ready for the legalization of cannabis. There are many countries that have legalized the use of cannabis, although Canada will be the first G7 country to legalize nationwide. What makes Canada a G7 country and what is so fascinating about this place.

A G7 country is one of the “7 advanced nations” such as; France, Germany, Italy, Japan United Kingdom United States. These have the most advanced economies in the world. To pause here, cannabis use is legal in America, BUT America is not cannabis legal nationwide. Over 20 states are legal but, not all 20 plus states are legal for open use. Many of them are only legal for medical purposes.

Justin Trudeau

The Canadian bill was approved in the upper house, and is now sent back down to the House Of Commons where ot will be reviewed. Here is what we call the “bill dance”. The bill came with only 12 amendments & now has over 40 “potential” amendments. This bill will go back and forth until both parties are happy with the outcome. Something that is said to be done before July 1 2018. Will that happen? We are all questioning that part. One of the amendments is the number of plants you can grow in home.

Provinces Manitoba and Quebec

Manitoba and Quebec want to ban the number of in home plants to zero, in BC a few laws already exist, being a more lenient provence. Lenient as in Vancouver is known for its 4/20 annual event, as well as its many markets on the island as well as on the “mainland”. A few rules are. ( many provinces are also moving to these laws) No one under the age of 19 can have cannabis on them ( legal drinking age in BC and most provinces is 19). Cannabis can be publicly used in places where tobacco smoking/vaping is allowed ( some provinces want to ban public use completely). You can grow up to 4 plants in home.

Canadian Cannabis Legalization

Canada is the leading fastest growing country in the G7 – with the biggest metropolitan areas – Toronto Vancouver & Montreal. More than one- third of Canada’s population call these cities home. As a G7 country we are moving fast and forward with new growth. Turning all eyes on us as we play the “ bill dance”. Canada is known as an “melting pot” for cannabis connoisseurs. Cannabis apparel is showing up in all provinces in Canada.

Canada, a place where people all over the world come to make this ever growing country home. We are known for our beautiful rocky mountains our wide spread of the prairie farm lands and our many national parks. Canada is a beautiful country fast paced and never stops growing. We are a G7 country through ad though. It’s what makes us special and unique. Although this “ bill dance” is confusing,frustrating and time consuming we are all excited to be the first G7 country to make cannabis legal nationwide.

1- Artwork

Calling all pot head Picasso’s, all dank Dali’s! Picking up a pencil after putting down a blunt is like drawing pictures of what the herb whispered to you while you inhaled her.

2- Cooking

This one makes perfect sense and I’m sure we all know why. The munchies are going to hit you anyway bro. Why not have a delicious meal or savory snack ready to cuddle up to. Our pallets change over time as we mature and adapt to new flavors. Now as adult stoners we’re ready to puff the green but taste the rainbow. Look up an interesting dish while elevated on cannabis. See how well the high you can follow step by step instructions. Also there are many foods (such as mango) that when paired with marijuana can actually make you higher. Try incorporating these into your cooking sessions until you’ve become a chronic culinary champion. Sweet treats come in clutch when you’re visiting the moon as well. Check out our stoner cookbook for amazing recipes.

3- Play video games

Look left, look right, check map and weapon inventory, now make a run towards head quarters. You’re officially in full survival mode ready to take on the worst. In this stoned moment it’s about much more than beating the high score, its life or death and we choose life! Video games when you’re blowed is like watching movies on an adrenaline shot. Being that you’re engaged on so many levels (visual, mental, physical)  when you play Mary makes this an overwhelmingly good time. Gaming is awesome for times when you want to Zone out in your high and be alone, but is also perfect for a super litty social smoke sess. Often times as smokers the act can be enhanced when you’re enjoying the company of a fried friend, or just anyone you vibe with. Hooking up the controllers during your next get up is sure to make for some interesting convo and belly laughs by he bong load.

4- Meditation while elevated on cannabis

One of the great attributes medical marijuana brings to the table is the ability to chill you all the way out. Many stoners soley medicate for stress relief and incorporate it into their daily lives for therapeutic reasons. Pairing these and other weed practices with meditation can help you reach heights you never thought you could. A huge part of meditation revolves around centering yourself and your thoughts to be in the “now”. Ganja takes you to a place where there is no space or time, opening your pineal gland to allow the most Nirvana like meditative state. It’s definitely worth a few Doobie hits and incense sticks to give it a try. Pot heads have hella busy lives too, taking a moment to stop the orchestra in your mind is a great way to reboot and recharge your soul. Namaste.

Getting elevated on cannabis and meditating is crucial when you’re stressed out or having a bad day.

5- Watch cartoons

Making it to the list of terrific trippy activities is of course watching cartoons. You can go in so many directions with this it’s insane. Whatever mood the herb puts you in will dictate whether you end up watching black and white classics, vintage nicktoons, anime, Tom and Jerry, or Rockos modern Life. Guaranteed you’ll pick up on things you never noticed, chuckle harder than you thought possible at Felix the Cat, and have a dope ass time. Cartoons are like a weed sproutlet they get danker and doper with time and age. So kick back and flip to some boomerang while you roll up. Nothing beats gorilla glue and Magilla Gorilla together in one room.

6- Cleaning

We know exactly what you’re thinking, “say whaaaa? Why would I waste a good buzz cleaning?” And that my stoner friends is where you’re wrong, you wouldn’t b wasting a good buzz you’d be making it better by using it to fuel your cleaning. Most would agree there’s nothing better than a productive pot head. So get to those dishes in the sink and blow the dust off your vacuum cleaner; but not before you get stoned to the bone. Once you’ve reached your level the tasks you were dreading an hour ago become busy work for your hands while you’re vibing out to your favorite playlist. Chronic cleaning in mist cases will have your living area sparkle like an open house, books arranged in alphabetical order as well as color coded. All thanks to that hybrid you finished earlier. Now that it’s clean and you can breathe sit back and be proud of yourself, a job this well done deserves another joint.

7- Work out

You are now being introduced to the end all be all when it comes to a pre workout. When you work out, or the release of sweat in general increases the blood flow in turn making you higher. It’s cool science stuff like this that could turn your next trip to the gym from epic fail to eternal win. If getting stoned before a good sweat just isn’t your jiz, then by all means grab yourself a killer Indica and blaze afterwards. Sore or rigid muscles don’t stand a chance against THC and CBD. Living your best life is a 360° effort and the fact that you’re even willing to get your heart pumping is a giant first step; paired with your first love you might surprise yourself with just how much iron you can really pump.

8- Listen to music

Now is the time to re visit all your favorite tunes so you can dance to them as if it’s your first time hearing. Having a soundtrack to your life makes any situation bearable at least, but when under the influence of Mary Jane you’re instantly in a movie, playing the lead role and not dying at the end. Not to mention there are several songs that water directly to a higher state of mind. One being the Weeknd’s “High for this.” Layers of sound have been compacted into one track that takes you beyond everything else. It’s one you most definitely have to enjoy. Bumping toons while high can lead to nothing but a good time maybe some dancing and memories to last a lifetime.

Get elevated and let the music set your mind free

9- Outside activities

Hotboxin with the homies is life, but let us not forget about our old friend oxygen. Get out and get stoned as often as possible. Sun kissed cheeks smiling in a full blown high is a sign of good things to come. Playing frisbee is an excellent source of vitamin awesome and an activity that Fido can enjoy as well, we can’t forget our pot head pups. Some even say they experience a better stone when they’re outside getting all one with nature and what not. Take that book on the porch, send those emails from the hammock, grab that soccer ball collecting dust in the garage and bust a move. The time is here to put that Sour D to work, use the bud as a sort of battery and remind yourself that life is full of sunshine.

10- Set life goals

Your soul and thoughts have taken flight. As the smoke still lingers in the air ideas begin to flow through your being. Think of good ones that actually make sense this time. Don’t just sit on it! Pull up the note pad on your phone and write them down. From this starting point there’s really no stopping you. Remembering life goals you set eons ago, they were never forgotten. Only in hibernation waiting for you to rip the bong and reminisce. Putting pencil to paper may seem a bit archaic now but the mere motion can get wheels spinning. Before you even realized it you completed a full year plan complete with your self esteem on 1000%. You may just want to get a simple to do list out of the way. Sparking a doobie beforehand will have you writing as well as finishing your honey do list before your honey dip can even ask.
Have fun, be active, and always stay stoned. Check out our awesome collection of weed clothing.

Mary Jane’s Deep Roots in Hip Hop

Mary Jane’s Deep Roots in Hip Hop

It’s no secret that taking hits of Mary Jane can stimulate and enhance your creative juices in a number of ways, one being the ability to spit hot fire. Hip hop and pot go together like hippies and VW wagons. A match made in heaven or a fatal attraction? Hip hop culture is constantly changing and evolving much like the medical marijuana industry, and the music hitting the airwaves definitely reflects this.

In 1995 the hip hop group Crucial Conflict had everybody bumping their hit “Hay”, with the chorus singing proudly “smoking on hay (hay) in the middle of he barn!” It was off the wall creative analogies like these that kept smoke floating through the streets. In most recent years though, lyrics have become much more straight forward embracing the fact that more and more people are being able to live their best stoner lives. Falling into the hip hop genre and a perfect example of how medicinal marijuana partakers have hit mainstream and aren’t ashamed to belt about it, would be Jhene Aiko and Swae Lee’s “Sativa”.

mary-jane-hip-hop

The title alone let’s you know some interesting lyrics are sure to follow. “I know you won’t leave me hanging, smoking weed out the container”…”is it hot in here it is it just me? I’m so high in here been smoking on this weed”. The straight forward delivery makes the hit you take while listening to this hit so much sweeter. Even still the stigma of Mary Jane being a negative has to constantly be proven wrong the best way to do this is to educate. On March 27th there was a Marijuana rally in Washington DC bringing together multiple activists in favor of legalization of medical Mary in the capital.

One of hip hops pot heavy hitters Cypress Hill headlined the event. The hip hop culture knows how much MMJ is a positive force, and when the two work together the force becomes unstoppable Musicians are individuals with mass influence able to reach millions; millions of stoners of course, and they love to share they’re high stories and experiences alongside dope beats. Progression is key and as long as Mary keeps reinventing herself through lyrics we can have nothing but high hopes for the future.

Pot Like a Boss

Pot Like a Boss

The idea of stoners/potheads is not what it use to be. Times have changed and so have the views, but some views are still the same. Some people still believe “pot-heads” are like that show “The 70’s Show”. Just a bunch of kids hanging out not doing much. And for some, that idea isn’t too far off but for some it was quite the opposite. When I hit my early teens I was introduced to pot – it was around christmas time and I was with my older brother. That was the first time I’ve ever smoked weed. I remember it hit me like ton of bricks.

Burning my lungs making me cough until I thought I was doing to die. Then I sat and laughed way to much about everything, everything was funny. My brothers friend drove me home, where I continued to the kitchen and then somehow made it to my bed without waking my parents and passed out. From there the cycle never really changed – I would get high have a burst of energy, the giggles, the munchies, and then the dreaded burn out. Moving into my late teens I took time away. Would come back here and there. One phase in my life where all I did was smoke weed and quit drinking and other drugs. The only thing that seemed to change was my tolerance, I was able to stay up more and the burn out get easier to deal with.

When I moved to Fernie BC a small ski town. I quit for about 3 seasons. I never bought it but if it was offered I would toke up. When I started smoking again I learned how to smoke and work. In other words “ pot like a boss”. Everyone did it – they would wake up take a toke while the coffee was brewing, get on with the day. If that was going to work, heading to the ski hill or getting ready for a bike ride.

As the seasons pasted, I continued to smoke up and do my thing. When I moved back home, had my son and returned to the work world was when I started toking up again. I took a year after the birth of my son. The reasoning was different it was to help with anxiety, stress, made the single working mom lifestyle seem a little more easier. As I started to create my business, branched off to other work, blog writing, radio work. Pot become a health benefit as well as a creative opener. I could feel it opening & expanding my mind when I started to work. The possibilities were endless. I could feel magic being created while I worked away. I’ve said it before pot will never make me a better person, but it does help me create a better artistic result. Which is more than 80% of my work.

I created this for a few different reasons. To tell you that it can be done!

Pot like a boss stonerdays

You can toke up and not sit on your ass all day long. Bending to the social stigma. To encourage you to activate the creative parts of you. To encourage you to use pot for its benefits not to just look “cool” or solely for the purpose that you like to get high. We are at such a beautiful time where we can speak out about the things we believe/ love. People are coming together, creating communities that support and educate. We can change the idea the social stigma others have on pot. But in order to change the minds of others, we must first change ourselves.

History of Cannabis – April 20 4:20

history-of-cannabis-by-stonerdays

History of Cannabis – April 20 4:20

History of Cannabis 4/20 – 1971 five boys got together to find an abandoned cannabis crop. They called this the “4:20 Louis”. Later “Louis” was dropped and  4:20 was born. After numerous attempts the boys never did find the crop and they eventually gave up. The “time” still lingered, over the years cannabis users across the world, used it as a time to toke-up. Talk about being a legend. Countries started coming together, creating events for the cannabis community. For those who smoked for its health properties, to the ones who smoked it just because they liked to.

Being an active festivaler myself, it was easy to understand that being around this environment brought a sense of belonging. For many cannabis enthusiasts 4:20 is a day to stand together and to fight for a change in the drug policy.

Ancient China – Cannabis was used in taiwan, for fiber 10,00 years go. Cannabis was referred to “daman” and was used for its many medical benefits. A Dutch sinologist Frank Dikotter said “ the medical uses were heightened in a pharmacopoeia of the tang, witch prescribed the root of the plant to remove a blood clot, while the juice of the leaves could be ingested combat tapeworm”

Ancient Egypt – Cannabis was used to help sore eyes . 1550 bc – ancient Egypt described it as “medical cannabis”

Medieval Islamic – From the 8th to the 18th century it was used exclusively for medical reasons.

Modern history – In the 19th century cannabis was commonly used as a secret ingredient called “plant medicine”. There was around 2000 cannabis medicines by 1937. In the 20th century Scandinavian Maltose – and cannabis drink was a popular drink in Denmark. The drink was advertised as a “great lunch drink for young and old”. 1964 Dr. Albert Lockhart began his study as cannabis the medical plant. 1996 California became the first state to legalize cannabis for medical purposes. Since then over 20 countries have legalized cannabis for medical purposes.

Can’t we all just get a bong? James Bong

Can’t we all just get a bong? And can’t we all just get along? Well, maybe if we all got a bong, we could all get along. And that is the mission of Bong. James Bong. To make sure that everyone gets a bong. And that everyone gets along.

We all know that the world governments seem to have the hardest time just getting along. So what if they all just got a bong? What would happen? In this latest installment of the cannabis crusaders comic adventures, James rolls through some sticky spots to find out.

Can’t we all just get a bong

Can’t we all just get a bong. Stoner comics

Agents of J.O.I.N.T. are sworn to believe that the world’s problems can be solved with cannabis. It’s a solution we can all share and pass along through the generations, and hopefully, one day, something that we can all agree upon. I mean, it’s okay to disagree a little. Some people like to smoke it, some people like to eat it. There’s room for everybody. Because either way, you will probably get the munchies.

As usual, James Bong is brought to you by a consortium of the world’s most talented artists, delivered with a creativity the worlds governments would do well to apply to their activities and governance. But the message is clear and translates across any and all boundaries.

Whether it’s a joint, a blunt, a bowl, or a bong, whether it’s indica or sativa, indoor or outdoor, the important thing is that we share. Because sharing is caring. And caring is the first step to getting along. And it all begins with a bong. James Bong.

Mothers and Weed: Living, Parenting, and Smoking Weed

#1 Reason why Moms Smoke: Another One of those Days…

(Written by a mom who tokes up)

Mothers and weed go together and for a day like this its like PB&J. Punching out at the office just meant clocking into my other job as mom. Another day where I pick up my crying child who also had a bad day. Another day where I’m driving home thinking about dinner, work, and more importantly; how am I going to unwind? Arriving home and all I want to do is take off my bra, change into my pajamas and get into bed, but that’s not what good moms do. So I start dinner, change my sons diaper, turn on the Disney Channel, and take a deep breath resisting the erg to throw a tantrum myself. I declare “mommy time” and I go to my special cabinet and pull out my special little box, open it, and pull out my joint and lighter.

Mothers Who Smoke Weed

This is the moment where I lose most people and get one of those looks of shame. They stop caring to hear more of what I have to say. Others do the, “been there” looks. Either way, mothers and weed go together for “mommy time.”

Let’s back up here. We all know that being a mom is hard, and this comes from a mother who smokes weed.

Moms have much to do, and more to remember. We’re hero’s, cooks, day planners, and human. Mothers and weed help. Moms listen to endless stories that make no sense, and we make it our number one interest. The fact is, its hard work, but we love them. I am a firm believer in the words and believe that you have to put on your oxygen mask before you can help others. In other words, you have to take care of yourself to take care of others around you. I couldn’t help my son and myself at the same time. I’m tired, still in work clothes, hungry and my glass of wine is not helping. In fact, it’s now doing the complete opposite of helping and making me want to cry. Forget parenting and wining, mothers and weed sounds like a pairing I need.

Real Life Parenting With Mothers Who Smoke Weed

I have always known the health benefits of smoking marijuana, but I didn’t smoke for those reasons. I smoked marijuana because of the enjoyment of being stoned. Now as a single mother of one, I smoke marijuana for health & wellness.

I will tell you that marijuana makes you or me a better mother, but I will say that it does help in my day to day life. It helps me be more creative, patient, relaxed, and not to worry about the small things. When its, “another one of those days” it helps me to take a breather and to prioritize what needs to be done before the days end. I can then go to bed hoping for a great nights rest. All things you need as you climb the parent latter. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy smoking recreational but the health benefits as a mother is much more appealing.

Mothers Who Smoke Weed marijuana 420 pregnancy

I can step out for 20 seconds, take care of myself, and know my son will be okay.

Mothers are no good for there kids in a bad mood. Children are smarter than we think, and pick up on things such as our moods and energy. Smoking weed of course has its stigma, and even today, as the laws are changing people still pin it as a drug that shouldn’t be consumed. The problem for most mothers, is it makes us ashamed. So why should we be ashamed for doing something that helps us? I conducted a research I found that 6/10 woman I talked to where marijuana users. All 6 mothers felt ashamed of what they were doing. All 6 said the reason was is that its illegal. Another study showed 9/10 mothers I talked to who didn’t smoke weed and drank alcohol, said that they don’t feel at all guilty for drinking. Most claimed “ mommy time” as drinking with other mothers venting about their kids.

As a mother who smokes marijuana and drinks wine, I found it oddly sad. Where were the proud marijuana smoking mother groups?

Why is drinking more “accepted” then pot? Especially in this day and age how the laws are changing. I could not wrap my mind around the fact that woman who smoked pot were still considered some what of an “outcast” or the “ hippy” mom who was also labeled “the bad mom.”  While the other mothers who get together with their bottles of wine and cases of beer are celebrated. There are groups on facebook, but when I reached out to the members no one answered not even one like, when I reached out on my personal facebook I got messages of negativity. A few positive but even the ones who were sending good vibes didn’t want to share.

Back inside with my little one. Im calm, and he is sensing the stillness in my body. My calming energy and soft voice, cradling him in my arms, sitting on the floor and rocking him back and forth. His tears stop and his soft sobs now turn into regular breaths. Taking his bottle he starts to slip into a nap. And at this very moment I say “thank you weed”. Thank you for helping me get through the ugly times. We applaud you for giving us the extra patience. We love you for helping open the hidden creativity zones in our minds, so that we can be children again. Thank you cannabis for lowering our anxiety and stress. You also help us see that a burnt dinner is really no big deal.

All the love from a mom who smokes pot and doesn’t see a single problem with it.

Marijuana Comic James Bong Cannabis Crusader

Well, it’s been over a year since the passing of the torch from the nation’s favorite cannasseur-in-chief, Budrock Obama, to President Tweet and his ironically named, super anti-cannabis Attorney General Joint, I mean, Jeff Sessions. Everybody at the JOINT Agency, Justice Organization Involving Nugget Technology, misses our Bud very much. So on this marijuana comic we decided to celebrate the cannaversary, or rather mourn the passing, and share this cannabis comic about the time Mr. Bong, James Bong, painted the White House green.
There’s a saying around the JOINT. It’s a saying that’s been at the core and the heart of the agency since the sparking of the very first JOINT, a saying that rhymes, and that saying is: puffsnotcuffs. And this mantra is more relevant every day, as activists and patients and freedom fighters everywhere struggle to remove the cuffs and take more puffs.
JAMES-BONG-STONERDAYS-COMIC-MARIJUANA
With a zealously corrupt organization enforcing unjust laws. JOINTS mission is more clear than ever. Luckily, James was able to coax his way into the Oval Office. Making an ally with the power of his words and the potency of his buzz, just before the changing of the guard.
As usual, Mr. Bong’s adventures are brought to you by a global coalition. Talents converging from across borders to spread the buzz, and our good weed ambassadors at stonerdays deliver the message.
Let’s work together to make America High Again. Truly One Nation Under Bong. A Land of the Free and Home of the Buzzed. Enjoy!”
Danks, I look forward to your reply!

How Does Smoking Marijuana Affect Weightlifting?

MARIJUANA-WEIGHTLIFTING

How Does Smoking Marijuana Affect Weightlifting?

We’re living in times of big changes. How does marijuana affect weightlifting?  Well, as technological progress occurs faster, the first AI has been granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia. The number of people living in urban areas is increasingly rising. People are turning their focus from fossil fuels to find ways to utilize renewable energy sources. Another big change is the legalization of marijuana in several states of the U.S. More than half of them deemed it illegal by 1931 (the massive unemployment during the Great Depression led to an increased fear of Mexican immigrants who introduced the recreational use of marijuana, having the American government condemn cannabis as dangerous).

cannabis and weightliftingNowadays, the plant’s medical benefits are being acknowledged, even by professional athletes. Cannabis helps increase our appetite, pain threshold, and helps with post-workout recovery. When it comes to using cannabis to improve weightlifting efforts and results, the effects actually vary depending on the person using it. We are here to explore the dilemma regarding the plants’ potential effects on hormones, behavior, and cognition.

The endocannabinoid system and weightlifting

One of the most important and far-reaching systems in the human body is the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which refers to a series of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. The two main cell receptors, CB-1 and CB-2 are bound in our brains and bodies by cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), through marijuana consumption. The binding of CB-1 and CB-2 by exogenous cannabinoids impacts several metabolic processes.

The ECS controls pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, sleep, immune function, and many other processes. Muscle and fat tissues utilize these cell receptors as well to control their own processes. Thus, a marijuana smoking habit can be perceived as a way to hack into our metabolism and affect certain processes.

Appetite

Weightlifters pay much attention to their nutrition, as it’s highly important for their muscle building goals. When activated by dronabinol CB-1 prompts the release of hormones that promote hunger. This can mean the world to all the weightlifters out there. The effects can be produced only by short-term cannabis use. Chronic marijuana users usually experience a decrease in appetite. THC has a weaker impact on appetite than 2-AG (a naturally-produced endocannabinoid molecule). Cannabis binds the CB-1 receptor, which results in an appetite decrease due to downregulation of CB-1 receptors, and eventually – weight loss.

Physical performance

There are several studies that showed how marijuana impairs human psychomotor abilities. Today, certain pro athletes have become major cannabis advocates, claiming that it also helps them with post-workout recovery, making it one of the cannabis trends in the industry that needs to be considered responsibly.

Muscle building: Kush Ups

We mentioned performance enhancement with runners and extreme athletes, but what about weightlifters? How does cannabis consumption affect muscle building? This requires a discussion of its effect on human hormones. The human growth hormone (HGH) and testosterone as two of the most important hormones that influence muscle growth.

When it comes to testosterone, there are studies that found a decrease in testosterone, as well as those that found no effect on testosterone levels, in addition to normal levels of follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin, and luteinizing hormone.

The legalization of cannabis in the U.S. hasn’t been conducted across the entire country, with a few ridiculous laws pertaining to cannabis still remaining. Weightlifters may benefit from appetite increase and post-workout recovery. The fact is that cannabis won’t impair your body’s ability to perform and build muscle. Just keep yourself disciplined when enjoying the herb. Don’t let it affect your dieting and training plans. You’ll manage to break through your physical plateaus and build muscle.

Starting Your Edibles Business the Proper Way

Starting Your Edibles Business the Proper Way

The marijuana industry has been growing rapidly since the legalization of medical marijuana in states like California and Alaska in the ‘90s. Now, nearly 60 percent of Americans live in a state where marijuana consumption is legal in some form. The edibles market alone is responsible for nearly $10 billion of the profits earned in the marijuana industry for 2017.

Edibles are now one of the fastest growing markets, making it an extremely lucrative business opportunity for entrepreneurs thinking about joining the market. Whether you run a subscription-based business in Colorado or open a storefront in downtown Seattle, you can almost guarantee you will make a profit if you are following the state laws and keeping up with ordinance amendments.

 

Know the Local Marijuana Laws

Each state in the U.S. varies in its marijuana laws, from states that offer medical and recreational sales to those 21 and older, states that only allow medical marijuana with a prescription, and states that allow no consumption of marijuana and punish marijuana users similarly to heroin users.

Because of the wide variety of legalization that spreads across the country, it is important to have a broad knowledge of the local laws in your area. Marijuana businesses have been known to be shut down for failure to follow state ordinances, so being one with the law is vital in this industry.

Establish a Kitchen or Shop

One of the many ordinances laid down for the edible industry is the requirement to cook your edibles in a commercial kitchen. Not only do you have to find a commercial kitchen, the kitchen itself also has to be sanctioned for marijuana use. This makes finding a space somewhat more challenging, but not impossible.

There also comes the additional burden of affording a space. Commercial kitchens are by no means cheap and often require money down for security deposits, insurance and other fees which can cut into your overall profit. The benefits of combining a kitchen and a shop means you don’t have a middleman to sell your treats; instead you make them in the back, bring them to the front and sell them.

The Financials

cannabis hangover

Money is the most stressful aspect of starting a new business. In fact, finding funding for your marijuana startup can be nearly impossible, especially when there are only a few financial institutions that will give business loans to companies that work in the marijuana industry.

Many entrepreneurs joining the market start their companies with their own money that they have saved. This is a smart option for doing business and avoiding debt, but it can make your profit potential feel low to start off. Though startup loans are difficult to come by depending on the state you operate out of, there are some places that will work with you.

Grow Your Own Cannabis

The best way to ensure you are using the highest quality buds is by growing them on your own. Nowadays, getting a license to grow your own plants is not too difficult in states where recreational use is legal. The most difficult aspect of growing your own bud in bulk is finding the land to grow it and the employees to maintain it.

Consider purchasing a cheaper piece of land that requires some maintenance. Spend some time working on the land, leveling the ground, tilling the soil, and fertilizing the dirt. Once you have a nice area to begin growing, it will only take a few short weeks before your plants start to turn out buds and you can begin baking.

Build Your Cannabis Brand

Your brand is one of the most important elements to perfect before you begin selling your products. In this industry, there has to be some element of purity and rarity to your product. Most edible businesses that have found success have done so by honing in on a specific niche like gluten-free treats, sugar-free treats and all-natural treats.

Recognizing the potential for profit based on your aesthetics is also vital. For example, if you want to sell an edible that looks like the real thing, you must present it thusly in the packaging by using earth tones and slogans like, “Tastes like home,” or “Like mom used to make.”

Another element of packaging to keep in mind: packaging regulations and standards. For instance, it is now required to have packaging and colors that are not attractive to children, as well childproof to avoid dosing your underage children with CBD and THC.

Develop Relationships

Relationships are important for any new and upcoming business, weed-related or not. If you haven’t created the proper connections and developed your professional network, it can be difficult to gain momentum in the market and build a reputation for your company. The edible industry is a market where developing relationships is especially important.

 

As a business-owner, you want to find people who work in similar fields to you and learn about their successes and how they achieved them. In the marijuana industry, the best way to build your network is by attending legit and professional marijuana conferences where you can test other products, learn about new trends and market your products to thousands of people.

If you are an entrepreneur hoping to join a market with massive growth and even more massive growth projections, the edibles industry can be an excellent choice for you if you live or are willing to move to a state where recreational use is legal.

Bud bakers are always welcome.

Cannabis Sleep – 10 Things For Your Herbal Nightcap

Cannabis Sleep – 10 Things For Your Herbal Nightcap

Before bed, many people choose cannabis sleep. Marijuana is offering new hope for those who suffer with chronic sleep issues. With 88% of Americans approving the medical use of marijuana, according to a 2017 CBS News poll, it may be time to change up your current nightcap of choice.

With more than 60 million people in the United States currently experiencing issues with their sleep patterns according to American Sleep Association, it’s never been a better time to take advantage of the changes in legislation. Instead of a glass of wine or a sleeping pill, cannabis before you sleep will have you catching your zzz’s. If you’re an insomniac who’s weighing their options, here are some things to consider before you decided to give it a try. Guilhem Vellut. Marijuana. 2005. Flickr.com. Web. Nov 7. 2017.

A Small Dose

It’s easy enough to think that a few puffs will do when it comes to inhaling cannabis and sleep, but it’s important to be aware that there can be too much of a good thing and using marijuana as a sleep aid is no different. Taking a few too many inhalations can easily lead to early-morning grogginess, so you’ll want to wade into your pre-sleep use slowly and get familiar with the drug’s impacts first.

Consider the Strain

cannabis and sleep marijuana nugIf you’re interested in marijuana as a sleep aid, it might seem like it’s all the same, but there are a number of strains to choose from and you’ll want to be informed about which one will work best for your needs. Indica can be a comforting, relaxing strain while a Hybrid is a combination of different strains, but it’s important to consult with your doctor or a healthcare professional first to determine what they would recommend.

Timing is Everything

The impact that inhaling marijuana will have on cannabis and sleep depends on many factors. Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly when it will hit you. Much like determining the proper dosage, you’ll need to time it as best you can. According to Harvard-trained physician Dr. Jordan Tishler, “They are unreliable about when they’ll kick in. Sometimes it’s about one hour, other times it can be more like two to three hours.” As a result, Tishler suggests taking your dose about one hour before bed to avoid upset.

Don’t Overdo It

With legalization occurring in many places, marijuana can certainly be a viable way of dealing with insomnia, but it’s important not to take its sleep-savvy abilities for granted. Prolonged use can cause changes to the brain that have an impact on cognitive functioning, so ensure that you use it in moderation and not as a daily antidote to ongoing sleep issues.

Reducing REM Sleep

There are two strains of cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and according to study by NCBI, using marijuana with a higher amount of THC will lead to less REM sleep. REM is important when it comes to regular cognitive functioning and feeling well rested, so it’s important to be aware of what you’ll be inhaling.

Try Some Tea

Cannabis and sleep – try some tea!

Once you’ve figured out the ideal dosage you may want to consider pairing it with a cup of chamomile tea. Because chamomile possesses sedative qualities, it can actually add a little bit of kick to your herbal nightcap. If chamomile doesn’t do the trick, you may want to try lavender oil or a melatonin supplement instead.

Cannabis and Sleep – Reducing Pain

Many people may not have to endure the effects of a troubled sleep. Dealing with chronic pain can be just as problematic when it comes to counting sheep. Fortunately, with its inherent medicinal qualities, a little bit of strains of the leaf can work to reduce pain and help users enjoy a more restful sleep.

Lengthening Your Rest

While cannabis can improve the nighttime hours for insomniacs, it’s also possible that it can lead to longer periods of uninterrupted sleep for those who use it. It’s just important to determine the dosage that will give you the required result so that you don’t have to deal with any inhalation hangovers or other symptoms associated with ingestion.

The Ideal Ingestion

Alongside dosage, you’ll want to determine the ideal way to ingest marijuana for maximum impact before you go to bed. Smoking it may lead to an instant reaction, while edibles can take a little bit of time to kick in. Before deciding on one or the other, do some bedtime experiments to see what gives you the best result.

Use Cannabis and Sleep With Caution

It’s important that marijuana isn’t the only solution to chronic sleep issues for a variety of health reasons. However, it’s also important to know that the effects of the drug can actually wear off overtime. While a little bit of use can help, some studies have shown that daily use gives way to more sleep disturbances in the long term.

Stoner Days Top Ten Celebrities Who Love the Leaf

Stoner Days Top Ten Celebrities Who Love the Leaf

There was a time when being a stoner wasn’t so mainstream, but with changing legislation and the health benefits of CBD and CBD oil, a zest for pot has become more common. According to a survey by Yahoo News and The Marist Poll, “Weed & the American Family”, 56 percent of Americans now think that using the green stuff is socially acceptable. Fortunately, as the tides change for the popular leaf, there are many celebrities already on the bandwagon. From pop stars and famous actors to comedians and American rappers, here are some of pot’s most prominent proponents.

Rihanna

Rihanna may have rose to fame as the Barbados- ‐born Queen of Pop. And, while she’s well known for songs like “Umbrella” and “S & M”, she’s also a big stoner and fan of the green stuff. It’s said that Rihanna’s slowed down on her affection for the substance. The snaps are out there for all to see of her rolling a blunt on the bald head of her bodyguard at 2012’s Coachella Festival. When the mood strikes, you can always bet that Rihanna’s on the search for the best Marijuana seeds around.

Snoop Dogg

stoner snoop dogg weed gifThere are few purveyors of pot as well known as Snoop Dogg, but what’s not as well known is that the famous rapper now has his own line of strains and edibles, Leafs By Snoop . As if that weren’t enough, the rapping roller also went to the White House in 2015 to meet President Obama, and supposedly got stoned with an unknown staff member during his visit.

Lil Wayne

He may be one of the best selling American hip- ‐hop artists of all time, but that doesn’t stop Lil Wayne from knowing when it’s time to chill out. As he said to Rolling Stone magazine in 2010, “I’m a very successful addict. And a very smart one. A very charismatic one. One stoner that just won four Grammys, and one that sold a million records in a week.” Well, no one said that a love for the leaf made one modest!

Joseph Gordon- ‐Levitt

One of the young actor’s first gigs might have been on the creative and quirky television show 3 rdRock from the Sun , but The Dark Knight Rises alumni finds his own inner creative spark with a little help from the green stuff. Referring to the inspiration for his movie Don Jon , he has pot to thank, stating to Howard Stern that, “I pace around and have all sorts of good ideas, I was stoned when I first thought of Don Jon as a comedy.”

Morgan Freeman

stoner-morgan-freemanFrom The Shawshank Redemption to Seven , Morgan Freeman is a Hollywood heavyweight famous for his list of films and his silky, smooth voice. Fortunately for Freeman, after an accident in 2008 that led to chronic pain, he started using CBD products in order to deal with the pain. Not only has it made his life a little easier, he’s become a proponent for the legalization of medicinal marijuana.

Willie Nelson

Outside of Snoop Dogg, there are few pot lovers as famous as Willie Nelson, the American artist behind hits like “On The Road Again” and “Always On My Mind”. Of course, Nelson’s love of the stuff isn’t limited to just smoking it. While he’s been arrested on a few occasions for pot- ‐related infractions, the stoner singer has long been an advocate for the drug, even telling Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently that he should “try it” before judging it.

Kristen Stewart

The well- ‐known actor may have burst upon the scene and become a near- ‐household name with the release of Twilight in 2008, but one of the first impressions the world had of her was a picture taken the day the movie came out. In it, the then 18- ‐year old Stewart smokes a pipe on her front porch with her dog and her ex- ‐boyfriend. Unfortunately, while there was some blowback, Stewart has mentioned that she doesn’t care what people think of the habit.

Bill Maher

The comedian Bill Maher is very well known for his former show, Politically Incorrect , and his sometimes- ‐snide zingers, but the famous talk show host also happens to be a great supporter of pot. While Maher works at understanding the right and the left on the political spectrum, he also wrote in an Op- ‐Ed for Rolling Stone saying that, “For all our political rancor, it turns out, what ultimately unites us is pot. Puffing weed with friends is one of the few things that both hillbillies and hippies like.”

Woody Harrelson

stoner woody harrelson gif

While Harrelson has confessed to giving up smoking pot in recent years, he has long been an advocate for changing the stoner policy. In addition to serving on the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, Harrelson was among the first to apply to open a dispensary in Hawaii when medical marijuana production was first approved.

Kirsten Dunst

Dunst may have had a bad experience on the set of her latest movie, Woodshock, when she smoked an entire blunt. Not realizing it was the real thing – but the actress still professes an affection for marijuana. According to Dunst, who indulges on occasion, “If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.” With the social acceptance of marijuana hitting the mainstream, there’s a lot less reason to hide a fondness for weed.

Your Favorite Bouquet: Cannabis Flowers

Your Favorite Bouquet: Cannabis Flowers

With all the hubbub (for good reason) that surrounds hash oil, mega concentrates, and even gourmet quality cannabis cuisine, our old favorite standby, flower, AKA bud, may get lost in the shuffle. Some of the world’s greatest natural beauty exists inside cannabis buds. You don’t want to miss out on high quality medicinal flowers. So let’s review some of our favorite ways to enjoy this tried and true classic. Put down that blowtorch, pull out a Bic, and let’s get started.

The Benefit of Cannabis Flowers

If you search “dabbing videos” on youtube you will see people torturing their lungs with heavy duty cannabis concentrates. Seems a bit wasteful doesn’t it? Moreover, when weed is concentrated into hash oil it loses an incredible amount of terpenes (aroma, taste) for the sake of potency. When you smoke flower you appreciate cannabis in its most sincere form, with accompanying scent and taste. Moreover, you avoid the increase in tolerance that comes with dabbing, and other more potent mediums.

Pipes/Bowls: What makes them so popular for cannabis flowers?

Bowls, pictured above, are popular because of their simplicity. They are cheap, easily made, and can even be created from scratch using a few household items. Moreover, many people enjoy how reliable and easy pipes are at achieving their purpose. You don’t need to conduct an extensive process, like baking an edible or preparing a dab, to use your cannabis. Even a weed novice can pack a bowl, when they can’t roll a joint or use a bong. Just be sure to keep bowl’s clean to ensure good airflow and quality taste. Too much resin and your pipe will be clogged, and offer dirty tasting hits. Dirty pieces compromise a flower’s terpenes and taste.

Bongs/Bubblers

bong gif ted cannabis flowers

 

The first bongs date back around 2500 years ago, possibly even earlier. Today, the bong, or waterpipe, still finds it way into stoner dens and smoke spots the world over. Many people claim bongs actually get you higher, and protect you from harmful carcinogens by filtrating the smoke through water. While there will always be some harm contributed by smoke, the water in water pipes does filtrate smoke enough to cool it down when it hits your lungs. When the smoke is cooler more can be inhaled, thus contributing to the user’s high. This is why bongs seem to get users higher than other mediums of cannabis use. Also, because bongs filter with water, user’s can taste their cannabis more clearly. Bongs are a great way to enjoy cannabis in its most natural form. 

Joints/Blunts – Why they are so popular

The Joint may be the most recognizable, iconic way to enjoy cannabis, and references to joints litter popular culture. Its mechanism of action is pretty straightforward: the user rolls cannabis in a paper, making a cylindrical shape. The blunt is a varied form of the joint where the rolling medium isn’t paper but a cigar wrapper. Joints and blunts are equal to bowls when it comes to smoke temperature, because the filter is more of a mouthpiece than a filtration device.

Blunt and Joint enthusiasts laud the medium due to its simplicity and ease of use. Once rolled, you only need to light the joint once and draw. Moreover, the joint’s cultural footprint makes it a staple in stoner culture. The only downside to the joint/blunt is that burning paper, and tobacco, have many carcinogens. Like it or not, there is no denying the joints popularity amongst new age stoners and cannabis purists alike.

marijuana-bouquet-flowersAs more states begin to legalize recreational/medical cannabis there are many options to consume your favorite plant out there. However, don’t forget about the humble cannabis flower, because without it there are no extracts, concentrates, and delicious gourmet edibles. Getting back to basics can help you rediscover your love of cannabis. So get out there! Roll a joint, pack a bowl, smoke a bong, and enjoy cannabis in its most sincere form.

What Is a Weed Hangover? How Do You Survive It?

What Is a Weed Hangover? How Do You Survive It?

Anyone who wakes up feeling extra foggy and out of sorts after a heavy night of smoking may have a cannabis hangover. It is common, and any serious user knows exactly how it feels. Similar to drinking too much alcohol, weed hangovers are a very real thing. Although the symptoms are never as severe as drinking too many shots of Jack Daniels, the explanation is exact – you took too much and overdid it.

Symptoms of a Marijuana Hangover

As with alcohol, weed hangovers are not something that everybody gets all of the time. Some people get hangovers after drinking excessively, but do not experience the same from weed. Waking up stoned and groggy is still widespread though, and those that eat edibles, use tinctures, or take concentrates may feel the after-effects more severely. So, what exactly are the symptoms of a cannabis hangover?

·      Headaches

weed headache

The most common side effect of excessive consumption of marijuana is a throbbing head. Dehydration typically causes headaches, and this is the primary complaint of those describing what a weed hangover feels like. If you struggle with headaches in the mornings, then your natural instinct may be to drink more water. Listen to this gut instinct and keep well hydrated when smoking weed in the future.

·      Red Eyes

red eyes gif

Red eyes are another widely reported symptom of a pot hangover. Smoking causes red eyes in most people, many of which rely on using copious amounts of eye drops and fitful sleep to clear it. However, when your eyes are still fiery the next day, it can be a clue that last night’s shenanigans maybe went too far. The cannabinoids in weed slow tear and saliva glands, which causes red eyes and “cotton mouth.”

·      Mental Fogginess

mental marijuana

If you wake up and wonder, for even a second, where or who you are, then you had too much fun the night before. Morning confusion is a classic symptom of a weed hangover. Jump-starting the brain after a deep cannabis-induced sleep can take several time-precious moments, which many claim impossible without a shower, breakfast, and good, strong coffee. Your head should clear as the day progresses.

Surviving a Cannabis Hangover

cannabis hangover

Marijuana hangovers can affect anyone using weed, regardless of whether they are new to it or old connoisseurs. Critics claim that weed cannot give anyone a hangover, and that people are simply still high when they wake up after a night of heavy use. This does make perfect sense but, being a problem of the night before, the effects of a weed hangover are still undeniable. This is what to do about it:

Drink Water

Because headaches are typically the result of dehydration, drinking water often helps to make them go away. Hydrate yourself if you have a marijuana hangover. You will feel much better after two or three big glasses of good old H20, and keep drinking as much water as you can stomach during the day.

Consume Caffeine

coffee and weed

Being a stimulant, caffeine might just be what you need to wake up properly and clear any lingering fogginess from your head. If you do not enjoy coffee, consider other caffeinated drinks. Anything that acts as a stimulant should help you to jump-start your day after a long night of heavy weed use.

Eat Breakfast

wake and bake breakfast

Breakfast will always be the go-to cure for any hangover, including a cannabis one. The sight and smell of a big, greasy breakfast resolves the problem for most people. Vegetarians or grease-avoiding folk may not find this solution appealing. Regardless of your preferences, make sure that you eat something solid.

Stay Active

Keeping yourself busy will help you forget about your cannabis hangover. It will also help your body to recover quicker, as exercise always does. If you cannot handle the idea of jogging around the block on such a morning, then do not despair. Even if you choose a low-key activity, just keep yourself active.

Smoke a Joint

Many do not recommend consuming marijuana again until the effects wear off totally. Others disagree and believe the “hair of the dog” approach the only real solution. If you do decide to smoke another joint or nibble another edible, then choose a Sativa-dominant strain for energy and motivation.

Conclusion

If your weed hangover is severe and you do not have work obligations, then you can simply sleep it off. This is the best option for most people, but it is not always practical. Fortunately, a weed hangover does not usually last as long as an alcohol one will, so if you drink enough water to manage the headache, you should be feeling great again in no time at all. Just remember not to overdo it too much in the future.

MARIJUANA USERS ARE HEALTHIER THAN NONUSERS

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers

Marijuana Users Are Healthier Than Nonusers

A recent study published in the Journal of American Medicine has shows marijuana users are healthier than nonusers. This is exciting results for marijuana advocates. Along with the huge list of marijuana benefits listed below, marijuana actually helps to reduce weight. This might not make much sense at first. Appetite may develop after smoking pot, and the end result is called “the munchies”. After smoking, this state is inevitable and overeating is a definite consequence.

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers2

This is mainly due to the THC content, which sends signals to the brain that trigger the release of certain hormones. These hormones tell your body that you need to eat, regardless of the fact that you may have just eaten. To add to this, marijuana actually increases sense of touch, taste and smell, so the food tastes even better and is even harder to resist. By controlling the release of insulin, marijuana regulates metabolism in a way that promotes weight reduction, despite the fact that marijuana users may still consume more calories. This really is the best of both worlds, you eat more but actually lose weight because of a quicker metabolism.

The study was quite large, consisting of over 4,600 people. Previous research had shown that marijuana users had lower instances of diabetes and obesity. But this is the first study of its kind to establish a relationship between insulin and marijuana consumption. Studies show insulin is a key hormone linked to heart disease and metabolism.

In addition to weight loss, the study found that marijuana users in general are healthier than their nonsmoking counterparts. Most of the key variables indicate health is better for marijuana users than nonusers. Marijuana users have smaller waist to hip ratios, lower blood sugar, higher levels of HDL (“Good”) cholesterol and a lower risk of insulin resistance. The most pronounced results were in those who smoked regularly. In other words, marijuana could soon be up there with fruit and vegetables in terms of health and wellbeing.

Marijuana Health Benefits

Marijuana-Users-Are-Healthier-Than-Nonusers

The findings of this study should not come as such as surprise, given the numerous health benefits associated with marijuana. Studies suggest that marijuana consumption increases creativity and problem-solving skills, and even helps focus in certain areas. The component that gives cannabis its health benefits is THC, which works on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for emotional processing, sleep and cognition.

The health benefits of marijuana are endless. Cannabis shows to alleviate Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, glaucoma, schizophrenia, insomnia, bi-polar and more. It helps to regulate metabolism and weight, by controlling the release of insulin. Not to mention the fact that it also happens to be a superfood. The leaves of the marijuana plant are full of beneficial compounds and vitamins. All leafy greens have the same characteristic of being full of vitamins which are incredibly beneficial. The biggest superfoods on the planet are usually green – Kale, Spinach, Spirulina, Marine Phytoplankton.

Cannabis research is making it a top superfoods across the web. Cannabis is used as a supreme muscle relaxant for athletes after sporting events, or to help them to get a restorative sleep. There is a large variety of topical cannabis products being release on the market as legalization continues.

How does Marijuana Work?

When marijuana is heated the THC rises in the form of smoke or vapor. THC is an element that gives the euphoric highs that cannabis is renowned for. Cannabis above 23% is judged to be of a high THC content. The range is generally from 19% to 23%. With the ongoing marijuana legalization, expect to see many THC infused products with a variety of benefits.

There is a large difference between vaporization and combustion. When marijuana is combusted, plant matter and filter paper is turned to smoke, and all the harmful chemicals from these substances end up being in your system. Numerous scientific studies indicate that vaporization is healthier than combustion. Materials heat to a lower temperature, which means that only the essential oils containing the THC and other compounds gets released. Chemicals get left behind as the heat is not strong enough to release them to gas.

Endocannabinoids

Cannabinoid receptors can be found throughout the body and play a role in practically all bodily functions, including sleep, appetite, mood, emotions, immune function, fertility and reproduction, hunger, temperature, memory, pain, pleasure and motor control. Endocannabinoids are chemical messengers that tell these receptors when to start and stop functioning. With many neurological disorders, endocannabinoids can help to get things moving again.

The Wonders of Marijuana

Research indicates the effects of marijuana on health are overwhelmingly positive. That said, it is still important to use responsibly. Excessive consumption, just like anything else, will result in unfavorable consequences. The real danger lies for children and young adults who might overuse. Marijuana has become one of the most illegitimately criticized foods in the world. The fact of the matter is that it does lower motivation, and there is a possible link between lower IQ and cannabis consumption.

It is also worth noting that while marijuana is generally good for neurological disorders, there are going to be instances where it will produce adverse effects. But if you are avoiding cannabis because you might put on weight, then you are doing so for the wrong reason.

As organic matter, cannabis decomposes. You can prevent this from happening for as long as you store it properly. In fact, marijuana is much like wine: If you store it correctly, it will actually get more potent and tasty with time. Here are 10 ideas to help you get cannabis storage right:

  1. Keep It Dark

All cannabis storage must occur in the dark. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, light will quickly degrade your harvest. Choose a place where very little light can get to it, preferably none.

  1. Keep It Dry

If there is moisture in your weed when you store it, mold will grow and destroy it. Make sure you dry it properly before putting marijuana in storage. Stash it in a dry place free of damp and mold.

  1. Store It Airtight

Do not let any oxygen near your weed. According to the National Institutes of Health, oxygen triggers decomposition. Anything you put in glass will stay fresh for a long time. Use glass jars with airtight lids.

  1. Store It Cool

Warmth can denature trichomes, stimulate bacterial growth, and severely reduce quality. Keep your stash away from any heat. Store it in a drawer, closet or cabinet.

  1. Keep It Large

Do not break your buds down for marijuana storage. Keep your buds as big as possible. Breaking them into smaller pieces will accelerate decomposition and destroy precious THC crystals.

  1. Leave It Untouched

Do not handle your weed at all during storage. You will damage trichomes and lose THC and cannabinoids. Leave your stash untouched until you are ready to use it.

  1. 10 BEST CANNABIS STORAGE IDEASBurped It

It is crucial that you “burp” during cannabis storage. During curing, you should do this daily. During storage, do it only monthly. Open the jar for 10 minutes to let it air. Close it and put it back when done.

  1. Keep It Unfrozen

Freezing works if you are storing cannabis for years, but almost nobody stores stash for that long. Unless you are, avoid freezing. Defrosting reduces quality. If kept cool, it will stay fresh for at least two years.

  1. Hide It

Although the legalization movement is sweeping across towns and cities, you should still be discreet. Hide your stash from other eyes, and do not advertise that you have any.

  1. Store It Safe

Storing cannabis should occur in a safe place. Do not put it where something can knock it over, such as a cat. Store glass jars where they cannot fall over and break.

Although it may sound complicated, marijuana storage is actually very easy. Keep it dry, cool, and airtight in a safe, discreet place. Burp it once a month, and do not handle it unless you have to. What is the worst thing to happen to you when storing cannabis? Let us know in the comments below.

BUYING CANNABIS – THE SMART WAY

buying-cannabis-the-smart-way-1

Buying Cannabis – The Smart Way

Buying Cannabis, The Smart Way has us thinking how the rest of the stoner community purchases the sweet mary jane. Here is a quick glance at some of the certain types of buyers out in the stoner community.

There’s the individual buyer, the one who has his own connect and picks up Han Solo. There’s also the I Got 5 On It buyer, a stoner with no connect but is always ready to throw down on a sesh. One of the more consistent buyers is the Eight or Quarter at a time buyer. This buyer picks up larger perhaps to nickel some off or purely to blaze a large ass sack. Last on our list is the stoner that picks up an ounce or two at a time. When the herb is good you should always think about getting a larger amount. The next batch may not be what it use to be if you know what we mean.

In this article we are going to break down the purchase of an ounce. An ounce is what most stoners should strive to purchase. No matter who you are picking up from, no dealer wants to see the same guy every day for a dime bag. Buying an ounce can be done a couple ways. Purchase the whole wad yourself or get a couple friends together and go in on it.

You can’t go wrong buying an ounce of cannabis at a time

weed-chart-1

There is no dealer out there who want to see the same person day after day picking up a dime or dub sack. This creates traffic and interruption. As a buyer not one wants to over time purchase 10 dub sacks when in all reality they could have picked up an ounce for the same price. Thats 8 extra grams of the sweet mary jane for the exact amount.

Awesome Ice Bong

The story for this epic ice bong goes like this:

I harvested the ice from a frozen river. Using a chisel and a hammer I shaped two smaller blocks (one for the base and one for the neck of the bong)

I used a 3/8in drill bit to drill the downstem. I used a 1 1/2 inch forstner bit to drill the ice away where the neck will be. To join the two pieces of ice I melted the ends flat on a wood stove and then stuck them together and let them freeze.

The bowl is a normal bowl that I froze to the ice. You can’t remove it to clear the bong because it is frozen in place

As far as the ripability goes, it’s great. Smooth rips every time

New Study Claims Cannabis Inhibits Creativity

New Study Claims Cannabis Inhibits Creativity

cannabis-creativity

Currently sitting in a shop full of tattoo artists that enjoy using cannabis in their off time, I conducted a quick survey and asked them if they think the plant has an effect on their ability to tattoo or pierce people in creative ways. Being a tattoo artist or piercer (a good one) is probably one of the most creative careers that one can have. So when a study popped up saying that stoners aren’t as creative as non stoners, we all kind of stopped and laughed.

The study (which some media outlets are claiming has “busted the myth that marijuana makes you more creative”) was conducted by dividing cannabis users in to three groups of 18. One group was given cannabis via vape (but again, media outlet twists this by saying the THC was “injected with a vaporizer”) with a high dose of THC (22mg), one was given a low dose of 5.5mg, and the control group, which was given no THC. The study stated the that highest dose was equal to three joints (averaging at .5 grams of THC per joint, totaling at 1.5 grams of THC) and the low dose was equal to about a single joint. The groups were then asked to complete two tasks that tested their creative thinking.

Researchers said that the smokers who consumed low amounts of THC and no THC did the best at these tasks. They had the highest amount of cognitive thinking during the test. The group that had consumed the higher amount of THC didn’t do as well and they claimed that it actually hindered the ability to quickly identify as many possible solutions to the problem at hand. The conductors of the study said that there was no evidence of increased creativity in their actual performance.

tattoos-marijuana

Psychologist Lorenza Colzato held a press release and stated to the media “The improved creativity that they believe they experience is an illusion. If you want to overcome writer’s block or any other creative gap, lighting up a joint isn’t the best solution. Smoking several joints one after another can even be counterproductive to creative thinking.” Yet in the information on the study, not one sentence mentioned if the high THC group was full of regular smokers. If you give a new smoker three joints to the face, chances are that they will pass out and that’s the end of it. Heavy cannabis users can power through a day at work, a long drive, math homework, or writing a paper. Seasoned stoners know how to handle themselves and this “study” may have neglected to remember that fact.

Unfortunately, stoners everywhere will disagree with this fact, myself included, as well as every person currently sitting within ten feet of me at the moment. As a writer, I can say that smoking cannabis helps me to think of more possibilities for subject matter and also helps me to slow my thoughts down in order to focus on the task at hand (the complete opposite of what this study claims). Bottom line? Stoners are the best people to ask about whether they think cannabis hinders their creativity, not a study that may or may not be biased.

Hemp Greeting Cards

Hemp Greeting Cards

StonerDays presents Hemp Greeting Cards made out of American made Hemp. Lets stop with deforestation and all rally behind making more products out of hemp. Our world is truly a beautiful place and we plan on keeping it that way for all generations to come.

 

Hemp Greeting Cards

Our world and StonerDays are constantly changing. With U.S. States and a few countries legalizing hemp and marijuana, doors are now reopening for production of textiles made from hemp. StonerDays is taking on this taboo plant and making Hemp Greeting Cards out of them. Our goal is to provide our fans with a hemp card that expresses their true feelings for that special person and for any occasion.

Write someone a card to wish them happy birthday or to just tell them that they’re your best bud. Some card stuffer ideas would be to add a dime bag inside or a joint/spliff. What could make someones day any better than some good vibes and some cannabis. Let StonerDays be the orchestrators of your next event such as a 4:20 sesh. Use our Let’s Get High Checklist hemp greeting card to rally the troops and make sure nothing is left out. Hemp Greeting Cards are available individually or in packs of 3, 6 or 12.

Marijuana and Sports

Marijuana and Sports 

I can imagine that the first argument against marijuana leniency in sports would be “well you smoke it so it’s obviously bad for sports players”.

stoner-days-sports

Well not these days. As most people know, there are numerous ways to get a dose of cannabis. You can vape it, smoke it, eat it, use tincture, etc.

So what if guys like gold medalist Michael Phelps want to enjoy a pot brownie, does it really matter? The guy won a gold medal I think he can choose what he wants to do. Since marijuana has effects that would seem to inhibit sports performance, I believe that it should be a less punishable offense for a player to test positive for THC than if they tested positive for steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Now there’s this; IS marijuana a performance enhancing drug?

stoner-weed-athlete-rob-van-dam

The plant relaxes people and improves concentration. Would that give pothead players an unfair advantage over sober players? While steroids promote a physical change, marijuana assists more in creating a calm mental state. Personally, I don’t see this as cheating. So you’re more calm. That doesn’t mean you’re now suddenly stronger or can run or play for longer. It just means that you’re chill. There really shouldn’t be a problem with that, right?

joe-rogan-DMT

Joe Rogan makes a very good point that working out while stoned is an awesome feeling. You can focus and relax during your workout. You don’t feel as stressed when you’re pedaling on the bike. Not to mention getting stoned and hitting the punching bag is quite liberating if you’ve had a bad day at work or school!

stoner-sports

I strongly believe that marijuana can assist us in most aspects of our lives and that sports could definitely be one of them. The relaxing qualities of the plant help to create a chill environment for you to work out in and play your sport. How many of you out there are stoner athletes?

Stoner Stereotypes

STONER-STEREOTYPES

Stoner Stereotypes

For years, stoners have been thought of as unmotivated, underage teenagers who can’t seem to accomplish anything more then eating their parents out of house and home. Others believe that stoners are daisy throwing hippies, running around hugging trees. I’m sure some of those statements might be true, but can we really assume that all stoners are the same?

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS STONER | StonerDays

These silly cliche’s are so ingrained in American media and portrayed in all stoner movies it would be extremely hard not to be influenced by television. But let’s admit it, they are pretty damn funny when your stoned. Everyone enjoys relaxing with a movie, good company, lots of weed and something to munch on. There’s nothing wrong with a day of relaxation no matter how you find it, and usually it’s found after a long day of work.

stonerdays construction workers | StonerDays

Stoners are extremely smart people who choose to smoke pot. There are people who choose to smoke a joint before a tests because they believe it helps them achieve higher grades. Others choose to smoke before they go to the gym saying it helps them focus on each rep. These same people will not only go to work with a better attitude but a want and drive to accomplish the most of each and every day. When all others feel the effects of a full days work and no release at home. With the days worries on their shoulders they never really forget about the day. This can cause stress, fights, drinking and really who want’s that.  I always smoke while I write. Stoners have become very familiar with the laws and benefits of marijuana. These days, we have to be smart in order to educate the people who still think that marijuana is a harmful gateway drug mmmkay?

South Park - Drugs are bad mmmkay | StonerDays

I don’t have anything against hippies but it seems like everyone still thinks that stoners are obsessed with tie dye and Jimmy Hendrix. Not every pothead likes that kind of stuff. I know plenty of stoners that own nothing tie dye, including myself. The image of stoners from the 70s and 80s seems to have followed us all the way to 2013. Some stoners appreciate the music of Hendrix, while others enjoy the sweet melody of a violin, piano etc. and let’s not forget about dubstep by far the easiest music’s to  loose yourself in. More to the point we all have our taste in music and most of us our set in our ways. Marijuana can help an individual truly let go of those old habits we all become accustomed to. This allows you to look at the world with a different perspective.

Stoner Pictures | StonerDays

Not only are stoners very creative, we like to consider ourselves energetic, alive, individuals. Smoking a blunt on top of a mountain on a beautiful winter day while snowboarding with your buddies is an experience unlike anything else and I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone. But the possibilities are endless swimming, hiking, simple throwing your headphones on, grabbing a skateboard, rolling a joint and hitting the streets can completely relax your mind and workout your body. It’s far more fun to get stoned and do these things. So, the next time anyone tells you stoners are lazy, show them otherwise not through angry or aggression but simple through your life, handle what needs to be done in life. Don’t talk about it, be about it.

skatepark and skaters | StonerDays

There’s also the paranoid stoner stereotype. Not all of us are worried that the cops are going to bust down the door and get arrested for having an eighth of weed. Some people do get slightly paranoid when they smoke but usually, you relax after a while and you realize that nothing bad is going to happen as long as you chill out and relax.

This stoner is the stoner who is always trying to quit smoking the ganja. He’s gotta get clean for that new job he wants, his girlfriend is always threating to break up unless he quits, he’s trying to become “healthier” and the list goes on.

10 Different Types of Stoners

Behind The Rasta Colors

Rasta Color StonerDays

Behind The Rasta Clothing Colors

This is the story Behind The Rasta Colors. There are some things that are extremely popular to stoners. Particularly aspects of the Rastafarian religion, which is most often associated with cannabis culture. More specifically, I’m referring to the three color combination that seems to follow the pot leaf every where it goes. The rasta clothing colors are super popular among the members of the stoner community. How many people know their origin? Even if you already know where the colors come from, it’s always good to brush up on cannabis related knowledge, just in case someone decides to test your know how.

Sometimes, black is included in the rasta colors but most stoners stick to the green, gold, and red. The famous color combo is shown on the Ethiopian flag. They stand for the loyalty that the Rastafari feel towards the state of Ethiopia during the reign of Haile Selassie, who was an emperor of Ethiopia that inspired great men such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela with his civil disobedience views. Rasta colors are interpreted differently but are shown on the Ethiopian flag (from bottom to top) as red, gold, and green. These colors are sometimes mixed up, sometimes even reversed. It all depends on the person viewing them, although that is genuinely the way that they are displayed on the flag.

the lion of judah stonerdays

Behind The Rasta Colors And The Flag

The colors each have their own meanings which are interpreted as follows (although again, some people may have different views on this). Red stands for the blood of martyrs, people that have given their lives to help others. The green represents the beauty, fertility, and green vegetation that Ethiopia holds within it’s boundaries. The gold, or the yellow, stands for the wealth of Africa. So these colors have a lot of meaning behind them and it’s important to know their history so that they become much more respected than they already are.

Rasta Higher State of Mind StonerDays

More then just a stoner symbol, the Rastafarian colors will be respected when used. The colors symbolize a lot more than just stoners. Things like this are important to know in the community. For more information on the Rastafarian religion, as well as the colors themselves, you can visit www.religionfacts.com

Stoner Guide; Four Creative Uses For Seeds And Stems

Stoner Guide; Four Creative Uses For Seeds And Stems

Every stoner knows the best buds can wind up having seeds and stems in it. Cannabis is a plant after all. Most stoners end up storing their seeds and stems for long amounts of time, acquiring huge collections of plant matter that’s not smoke-able. Eventually, these seeds and stems end up getting tossed in the trash. You should be utilizing your stem stash to it’s full potential. But if you aren’t, here are four ways that you can get high off of that so-called trash.stoner seeds and stems marijuana

  • Make Topicals

    Cannabis based topicals are extremely helpful for those with areas of concentrated pain, like arthritis in the wrists, pain in the ankles, etc. By simply using your stem collection, you can craft easy topicals right at home. To start, make some cannabis coconut oil. Grind your stems up in to a powder. Mix it with the appropriate amount of coconut oil (it will vary depending on the amount of stems you have).

    Let the two simmer together for about 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. Strain the mix (let it cool a bit before attempting this, oil is very very very hot!) through a coffee filter in to a Pyrex container. While the mix is still warm, add in equal parts of beeswax and a double part of almond or olive oil. Add in additional ingredients like Vitamin E oil and essential oils for extra skin benefits and a good smell. Essential oils like lavender are a good pick. Pour the mixture into a reusable jar and store in a cool, dark place.

  • Create A Hemp Wick

    There are a great deal of stoners who prefer not to smoke using a butane based flame. Butane flames clearly leave a strong taste on the cannabis. The wicks, however, burn much cleaner. Using a knife, shave down the long stems until they are very thin fibers. Twist the fibers together tightly, over and over. Then, fold the rope in half and twist it together some more. Dip the rope in beeswax and wipe off the excess, hang the rope somewhere safe to dry.

    stoner seeds and stems marijuana

  • Extract Stems For Bubble Hash

    Bubble hash is a solvent-less hash that is obtained by washing resin off of cannabis plants with freezing water. This water/cannabis mix is then filtered through numerous layers of special bubble bags. The final product is a very concentrated form of THC. It is possible to make using the buds of the plant, the shake from trim, or a large collection of stems.

  • Brew Tea (Classic!)

    In my early years, everyone used to say that the best way to use your stem collection was to make them in to tea. You simply decarb the stems first. Grind the stems up until they are almost a powder. Add the cannabis teabag in with another of your favorite teas. The cannabis tea adds a nice flavor to things like chamomile. Be sure to try stem tea before you knock it!

Kingston Jamaica stonerdays

Jamaica is the home of ganja and is very popular in the stoner community. Cannabis is loved in this area and is grown by many farmers. Not to mention the sun is always shining and the water is beautiful. Most people are extremely friendly but be warned if thinking of visiting; do your research before visiting! Marijuana is still illegal on the island but everyone will try to sell it to you. Don’t get arrested abroad!

2. Amsterdam

amsterdam stonerdays

Continuously referred to as the mecca of marijuana use, Amsterdam is not only a 420 place but a beautiful destination that people will enjoy. Unfortunately, the 2012 ban put a stop to tourist marijuana usage in three of the country’s provinces and is expected to crawl across the rest of the state by 2013.

3. Toronto, Canada

While it’s pretty cold up there, the Canadians have been working on getting their marijuana laws set up for a while now. They’ve been putting in to effect a huge plan to get medical marijuana to hundreds if not thousands of patients that currently can’t get medicine now.

4. Manama, Bahrain

Manama Bahrain Stonerdays

The laws here are still kind of strict but if you have the connections, the hash here is rumored to be amazing. While the majority of the population indulging in hash smoking, the residents are pretty intent on keeping the hash quiet. Not only that but you could end up paying $50 for a piece of hash as big as your thumb.

5. Barcelona, Spain

barcelona-spain-stonerdays

With possession being up to 40 grams, Spain is a great place for cannabis lovers. For the most part, you can smoke weed pretty much anywhere as long as you’re not making a scene. With awesome events such a Spannabis being hosted here, it’s a beautiful destination spot for traveling stoners!

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings

super-baked-buffalo-wings

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings

Super Baked Cannabis Buffalo Wings are on point for every stonerA great addition for any party! The prep time is really only 15 minutes. Cannabis Buffalo Wings do have to be refrigerated for at least one hour so the flousuper-baked-buffalo-wingsr coating gets firm before baking them. We like to prep them the night before and refrigerate them over night. If you like your wings really spicy you can always add more cayenne pepper to the dry mixture and/or use a spicier hot sauce. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 1 hour 45 min

Cook Time: 60 min

Ready In: 2 hours 45 min

Ingredients

  • 20 chicken wings
  • ½ cup melted cannabis butter
  • hot pepper sauce ½ cup (we like to use Franks Red Hot)
  • salt ½ teaspoon
  • garlic powder ½ teaspoon
  • cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon
  • onion powder ¼ teaspoon
  • paprika ¼ teaspoon
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • Dash of black pepper

Directions

downloadSqueeze and pat dry your thawed wings until you have them as dry as you can get them. Combine all of your dry ingredients (salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, paprika, pepper, and flour) into a gallon sized sealable plastic bag. Once you have all the dry ingredients mixed in your plastic sealable bag add your wings, seal the bags, and toss until the wings are evenly coated with your flour mixture. Now place your coated wings on a cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour. This step can be done the night before which is awesome!

Once your wings have been chilling in the fridge and you’re ready to bake them preheat your oven to *425 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil or cooking spray and set aside.  Melt a ½ cup of cannabis butter on low heat. Once your cannabis butter is melted turn heat off and whisk in ½ cup of hot sauce. Separate your hot sauce and cannabis butter mixture equally into 2 separate small bowls and set aside.

Place your wings onto greased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes on one side. Flip them and bake for another 18-25 minutes. When wings are done remove from oven. Dredge wings in one of the sauce mixture in bowl and place on a new ungreased cookie sheet. Place wings in the still hot oven on broil for 5 minutes. Flip wings and broil for another 2-5 minutes. Remove wings and toss in the remaining cannabis hot wing sauce and serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.

What To Get A Stoner For Christmas

It’s December and for those the celebrate Christmas, it’s the season to buy a ton of presents. Stoners can sometimes be tough to buy for, especially for those who don’t feel comfortable buying a bag of weed from a street dealer. Even if you do feel okay buying bud for your friends and siblings, maybe your family isn’t 420 friendly and you need some more legal gifts to give while your aunts and uncles are around. If you’re looking for a stoner’s Christmas list, you’ve come to the right place. These gifts will be perfect for the pothead in your life, especially if you don’t feel like buying them a bag.

1. Growing equipment

stoner gifts stonerdays

This stuff can get pretty expensive so buying the pothead in your life some grow lights or soil might just make a stoner’s Christmas! Growing marijuana is very expensive so even the littlest bit helps! Buying things from a hydro store isn’t that sketchy either. After all, you’re just growing tomatoes in your house, right?

2. Stoner movie

half-baked-movie-stonerdays-stoners

There’s so many choices for this one that you may want to give something else! It’s almost impossible to pick the perfect stoner movie, although I’m sure that the receiver will love it no matter what. As long as it contains some sort of goofy humor, it’s sure to become a constantly watched DVD.

3. Cool lighters

StonerDays-Stay-Blazed-Marijuana-420 (3)

Perhaps you seen an interesting pack of Bic lighters somewhere. There are awesome stocking stuffers, especially if you can find the really awesome rare ones. If you buy a cool lighter every time you see one at a gas station, you’ll have an abundance of stocking stuffers once Christmas comes around. Or you could just buy the Bic multipacks. Stoners always need lighters.

4. Rolling papers

And if you’re in the warmer areas of the world, there’s still t-shirts and tanks available!

6. Video games

From the simple Mario games to Call Of Duty, stoners love video games. No matter what you buy them, they’re sure to be amused by it. Just make sure that they already have the system that the game is made for. It happens far more often than it should, getting games for the wrong system!

7. Glass

10. Cash

Project “I Will Walk Again”

Project “I Will Walk Again”

This is Wes Bandemers story. On June 10th 2006, his life would change forever.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
― Frank Herbert, Dune

About Wes Bandemer

I was born in San Diego California. At age two my family and I moved to Wyoming where my cousins lived. They had been racing and riding dirt bikes for as long as I can remember. My love for motocross started after my uncle and cousins took me out riding in the Badlands of Northern Wyoming. I was on an old white Z50 riding around enjoying every moment of it not knowing motocross would one day be the most important thing in my life. Many years went by with the occasional ride day, watching my cousin and uncle race, watching races on TV and building tracks in the dirt for our toy bikes.

wes-will-walk-again-(7)

My uncle and cousins quit racing and the motocross life dwindled as us kids just moved to the next thing that caught our attention. When I was 10 my family moved to the southern Louisiana town of Morgan City. I remember being bored one day and thinking about those days going out riding and it made me want to ride again. The next day I asked my parents if I could get a dirt bike. They said the common parent reply, “We’ll see”. My birthday or Christmas must have been coming up because not long after asking for a dirt bike, I got one! It was an old 95′ Honda XR100R that had been used as a pit bike by a racing family. Not long after that the whole family had bikes and we were going riding every other weekend or so. We would go to motocross tracks, trails, and sometimes just to a friend’s house near a levee with some nice sized jumps. I loved jumping more than anything. I knew some kids at school who raced and I decided that I wanted to get into racing.

wes-will-walk-again-(9)

I was getting bigger and that XR100R wasn’t the best bike for a motocross track. I ended up moving up to a 03’ CR85 Expert. That bike was crazy fast and was a huge difference from the 95’ XR100R. I adapted fast and felt that I was ready to race. My dad and I got up early one Sunday and started getting ready when it started pouring down rain. I called the track and the race had been canceled due to rain. Something about my first ever race being canceled did something weird to me. I was in Junior high school and the football season was about to get started. Dirt bikes took a backseat to football and before I knew it I was finishing up my freshmen year in high school with zero races under my belt. Before freshmen year was over my mom told me we were going to Wyoming over the summer to visit our family. We took all of our bikes with us. My brother and I rode with our cousins every chance we got on the trip. We went from different towns riding with different cousins.

wes-will-walk-again-(8)

One of our cousins had really gotten into racing motocross. He was in a championship series and invited us to a race just outside of the town we were staying at. After watching him race that day I realized how much I was missing out on. At the end of the day my Uncle asked me if I wanted to race the next day on my cousins KX125. I said I would just ride my 85 and didn’t want my first race to be on an unfamiliar bike. It’s funny though because I was 15 standing at 5’11” weighing 185lbs and my big CR85R had turned into my little CR85R. I felt awkward in the start gate lining up to kids who had to have blocks under their feet to hold their bike up, while I’m sitting there with my knees bent almost at 90 degrees. I ended up 4th in the 1st moto and 2nd in the 2nd moto for a 3rd overall out of a full gate in both motos.

wes-will-walk-again-(6)

That would be my last race for a whole year. When we got back to Louisiana I was pumped up to start racing, but definitely needed a bigger bike. My dad’s friend ended up having a CR250R for sale. My first race day on the 250 I entered the 250 C class and the 250 open class. I ended up getting 1st in the 250 C class and 3rd in the 250 open class. People from the race told me I was a natural and If I applied myself I could be pro in 2 years. So that was my goal and I started racing local races every weekend that I could.

The accident:

wes-will-walk-again-(5)

One day I got an invite in the mail to the top dog shootout race. I had raced the top dog shootout the year before and finished 8th in the final race so I definitely wanted to do it again. The top dog shootout was a 3 moto of 5 laps each per class format. The top 3 from every class were put into an 8 lap race winner take all. In order to train harder and get as much time on the bike every race day I always entered 2 classes and this meant 38 laps for me that day not including practice. In the 2nd moto of the 250 c class I wasn’t doing to great and decided to hold the gas a little longer on the right sweeping turn before the finish line jump which put  me at the far left of the jump face. That was the side where everyone who didn’t jump it, rolled it. This caused there to be no lip and when I jumped I was thrown in the air wrong. The front of my bike dropped right off the top of the jump. While I was in the air I was able to level out the bike, but when I landed I was thrown from the bike and landed on my face. My body bent over my neck backwards shattering the C4 vertebra. That was June 10th 2006.

Now:

wes-will-walk-again (2)

Prior to the accident, I tried to be the best athlete I could be and live as actively as possible. Now I’m doing whatever I can to regain some movement and hopefully some day, my independence! I do use marijuana for pain and for many reasons, I’m very strict on myself cause I have to be healthy in order for my body to recover and not damage any of the stem-cells I got in India. I don’t drink alcohol, I work out every day and I’ve been vegan for the past 2 years. I take one prescription pill a day from being paralyzed for 8 years. Doctors are pretty shocked by that, this only happens in raw cases and I am one. During my last trip to India I found an article about how cannabis and it healing the brain after an injury http://www.theweedblog.com/new-study-cannabis-may-grow-stem-cells-repair-the-brain-after-injury/ I feel like it then can also help repair my spinal cord. It also mentions how cannabis has neuroprotective and immunomodulatory capabilities and it is a nervous system stimulant. I feel more connected to my body after ingesting cannabis. I’m doing everything I can to get back on my feet.

Stoner News; Vets For Cannabis

Stoner News; Vets For Cannabis

For the vets that have served and come back from war (we thank you for your service!), smoking medical marijuana may be heading towards an uneasy patch for treating PTSD. Those that suffer from post traumatic stress disorder suffer from multiple problems. Sleep disorders, eating issues, fits of rage… The list goes on and on. Cannabis really helps suffers to alleviate symptoms of PTSD, especially the super strong strains that are coming out these days. With higher THC and CBD percentages, this medicine is crucial to these patients daily lives. But all of that could change with the oncoming legalization of marijuana.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays

One of the issues that has been presented regarding legalization is the fact that the government will take control of the marijuana production. If that happens, there is a chance that marijuana will become… Well… Crappy. If the government takes control, they may create a “generic” marijuana, if you will. The pot will all be the same potency, with no real taste of flavor. Kind of like the lamest cigar on the shelf… It’ll do what it needs to but it’s not going to impress anyone, you know? This presents a huge problem for PTSD sufferers. If the marijuana becomes substandard, then patients will have to smoke more of it to get an effect.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays 2

Augustine Stanley, an Iraq war veteran was actually fired from his job at Bernalillo Metropolitan Detention Center for holding a medical marijuana card. Not only is that incredibly awful morally, but seeing as how the man was prescribed a medical card by a doctor, it’s completely unfair for him to lose his job over it. The facility, located in New Mexico, apparently missed the memo that PTSD is included in the medical cannabis laws. Stanley, however, will continue to take cannabis to treat his PTSD, as he claims that the plant has given him his life back.

cannabis for ptsd stonerdays 1

These people fought for our freedom. They have seen horrible things in their lifetimes. We cannot imagine what they have been through. That being said, there is absolutely no reason why cannabis should be held out of reach for PTSD sufferers. Seeing as how the pharmaceutical medicine used to treat PTSD has a high risk for suicide and severe withdrawal, cannabis presents itself as a much safer alternative. Vets fought for us. We can give them the same courtesy and fight for their right to medicate the safe way.

Canna Turkey

Canna Turkey; Stoner Cookbook

canna-turkey

Thanksgiving is almost here! So here is a great danksgiving turkey recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized (12- to 15-pound) turkey
  • 1/2 cup marijuana butter
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage

Directions:

Melt the cannabis butter in a small saucepan over low heat and blend in remaining ingredients. Stuff the turkey and/or season it with salt and pepper, if desired. Make a small incision in the skin of the turkey. Force a finger through the slit and break the contact between the skin and the meat. Using a meat injector, squirt half the butter mixture under the skin. Cook the turkey according to your favorite method, basting it with the remaining butter mixture every half hour until it’s done. We cooked it on a Traeger grill and it was juicier and more moist than any turkey I have ever had before.

Stoner Halloween Costumes

Stoner Halloween Costumes!

STONED-HALLOWEEN

It’s October! A great time of the year stoner or not. Halloween a night full of candy, laughter, parting a night of wonders for a ages.  A holiday with an extremely interesting history.  If you’re not going out for candy, chances are you’re going to a party. Parties on Halloween require a costume. So before you head out into the night with your red eye’s here are some dope Halloween costumes that you can do alone or with a friend! Enjoy.

1. Cheech And/Or Chong

cheech-and-choong6

Whether you go with someone or by yourself, everyone knows these two. They have that classic stoner look that’s easy (and cheap) to pull off! I definitely recommend this one for a duo but as I said, you can pick one and totally go solo!

2. A Bong

stonerdays-halloween-bong
It’s a pretty simple costume that can be bought or make yourself with some foam and paint! Just make sure that you air it out first. There’s a few for sale on eBay. People are sure to get a kick out of the dancing bong at the party. Just make sure that no one tries to light your bowl. Maybe you should wear a sign that says “No Smoking…”

3. Weed Leaf/Weed Princess

marijuana Halloween stonerdays
This is something that could work for both genders. If you’re a guy, you can decorate with foam, green clothes, and spray paint. It’s a pretty simple costume. But for ladies, Halloween is definitely about less being more. Since places like Spencers sell weed leis, you can purchase some of these and glue them to some booty shorts and top. Get some cool green body paint and go to town! Also, don’t forget the crown! 😉

4. Scooby & Shaggy

shaggy scooby stonerdays
Here’s another duo one. Or you could go as just Shaggy because his character is fairly well known in the stoner community. Definitely much better as a duo. And plus, you can go around asking everyone for Scooby Snacks and hopefully some of those snacks have bud in them!

5. The Dude

the dude stonerdays
People definitely know the Dude! The sweater can be found on eBay and Amazon and his baggy pants and sunglasses are everywhere. Not only that but you know that the Dude can handle whatever happens and so can you this Halloween!

As always, be safe and stay blazed.

Five Dope Stoner Bongs

Five Dope Stoner Bongs

Glassblowers deserve the ultimate respect from stoners everywhere. They work extremely hard to make beautiful glass art for us so that we can smoke our weed in style. There are thousands upon thousands of designs of glass and I’ve found five that I think are absolutely amazing.

1. The Rainbow Monster

Stoner pictures marijuana bongs | StonerDays

I made up that name because I think it fits this piece perfectly. It’s hard to tell what goes where but I would love to add something this intricate to my glass collection. This piece i so crazy, with the chain link piece and the amazing bubbled out parts that may or may not contain some other universe. The colors are vibrant and mesmerizing. A bong this beautiful would be hard to smoke out of, for fear of getting it dirty!

2. Lungs of Glass

Stoner marijuana bong | StonerDays

The title says it all! An incredibly eye catching piece of art, this bong is perfect for someone who loves the human anatomy. While delicate and complicated, I can imagine how hard a piece like this would hit! My only issue with something like this would solely be cleaning it! This is something that someone would love to show off at a smoke session to really impress their friends!

3. Brainnnnnns!!

brain bong

Everyone loves zombies. I hate horror movies but damn, do I love zombies! What better way to show your fandom of the living dead than this dope brains bong? With a perc that’s shaped like a half eaten zombie head and a bowl that’s shaped like a brain, this piece is the perfect Halloween surprise present… To a friend or yourself! Now pack it up in a case, bring it somewhere spooky and get stoned… October 31st is fast approaching!

4. Finn & Jake?

finn and jake bong

I saw this piece and immediately thought of Adventure Time. I think that it might be the color scheme of orange, black, blue, and white. Even so, the design is amazing, with the swirls and loops and an almost crown-like perc. Again, I bet this thing is a heavy hitter and could definitely combat any distress you’re feeling, just like Finn & Jake! 😉

5. Bang! Your Stoned.

bang bong

Enjoy this life sized AK-47 bong at your own risk… Of suffering far too long from couch lock. This piece was created by Mickelsen Studios and is fully functional. It even looks like it has bullets in the magazine. The things that people create with glass are absolutely amazing!

Always remember to respect the glassblowers! It’s their hard work that makes it possible for us to buy amazing pieces like those pictures above.

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide | Stoner Blog

One of the arguments against marijuana is that it may contribute to depression and suicide. Anti-pot smokers like to argue that stoners are seriously lazy and depressed but unfortunately for them, a study from Germany has been released saying that places where marijuana laws are lax and the plant is well loved, rates of suicide have actually decreased, rather than increase. Since suicide is most often caused by stress and marijuana takes away stress, it definitely makes sense that cannabis would allow people to release their stress, causing a drop in suicide rates.

636024217934235765164951305_suicide

 

California supplies anxiety patients with medical cards and both Delaware and New Mexico have PTSD listed on their lists of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. In these areas, there’s been a 5% reduction in suicide rates, especially in males age 20-29, according to this study. The results suggest that since those that use marijuana drink considerably less alcohol, which is a serious depressant. If stoners drink less, that would also mean that the amount of drunk driving accidents may decrease in these areas as well and that the benefits aren’t just restricted to those suffering from depression.

suicide2

Most subjects tested were male, since females are four times less likely to commit suicide and succeed, according to researchers. The bottom line of this study? Legalizing marijuana leads to an improvement in the mental well being of most young adult males, resulting in fewer suicides. So the next time that some tries to tell you that cannabis promotes depression and suicide, just remember that depression and suicide are caused by stress. Marijuana is used as a treatment for both of those illnesses so it only makes sense that places with lax cannabis laws would have lower rates of suicide.

Blunt Pipe

The Blunt Pipe | Stoner Blog

There’s a strong chance that if you have Instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen photos floating around of a blunt rolled in the shape of a corncob pipe. Not only that, but there are also photos of the blunt with joints stuffed in to what would be the bowl, creating an epic time bomb blunt that is sure to knock a novice stoner on their ass. The blunt pipe was born in to social media hysteria by the Instagram page @boppin954, definitely an architect stoner. The process for rolling the blunt pipe is much more simple then you think and can be done quite easily, thanks to a video sent to me by @boppin954 that breaks down the process.

2807b4f63cf411e3995622000a1f9812_8

The materials that you’ll need include the following; weed, two blunt wraps of your choice (or cigars I suppose… I’m not 100% sure what was originally used but I’m sure you could manage it with either), and scissors. To start the blunt pipe, the first step is to just simply roll a blunt. The amount of weed that you want to use it up to you but remember that you’re going to be adding weight to the end. Be sure that you account for the extra weight if you feel like rolling a monster blunt. It’s recommended that you roll a fairly average size blunt, about the length of a normal pipe.

4e64032c1bf511e3b07922000a1fbd9b_7

Once you’ve rolled the blunt, cut the second wrap to form a sort of bowl. Try to make as few cuts as possible, as reattaching everything might get a little bit difficult. Form the bowl but be sure to leave a hole large enough for the blunt at the bottom of the bowl. Once you have formed the entire bowl and attached the paper together, gently slide the end of the blunt in to the hole that you left in the bowl. Using a strip of blunt wrap, gently attach the bowl to the blunt by wrapping the strip around the part where the two meet.

e770d5861a6511e3ab4322000a1fa430_7

The last step is to fill the bowl of the blunt pipe with freshly ground up bud. Don’t pack it too tightly or it won’t burn. Fill it almost to the top with bud and you’ve finished your very own blunt pipe. This roll is incredibly popular right now and it’s definitely something that all blunt loving stoners should try out. Much thanks to @boppin954 for providing the tutorial. If you have any questions of the roll of the blunt pipe, you can contact him via Instagram! Enjoy your blunt pipe!

Marijuana and Weight Loss

Marijuana and Weight Loss | Stoner Blog

 Stoner Ladies listen up. Marijuana and Weight Loss are now being put together in the same sentence! So go ahead ladies, take another hit off that beautiful bong!

A new research study on marijuana reports that regular use of marijuana consumption may in fact be a contributor in weight loss. This conclusion comes from a report published in the American Journal of Medicine. This is great news to all of us Stoner Men and Women out here in the cannabis community.

green-tea-weight-loss

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Nebraska, Harvard and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, examined 4,657 adults, 579 of whom regularly smoked reefer.

“We found significant associations between marijuana use and smaller waist circumferences,” the researchers report.

A significant amount of potheads had 16% lower levels of insulin than the non-smokers in the study. Awesome news, you got to love to hear this stoners. Thumbs up!

The hormone Insulin, regulates metabolism of fat and carbs. Maybe that’s why smokers of the miracle plant marijuana are less prone to diabetes. Good thing because I’m sure none of us cannabis users want to develop diabetes.

lead_large

Well I may not be a doctor folks but all signs point to continuing to smoke the reefer goodness. Stoners pack up those bowls and make sure they’re filled to the top with that good kush. Smoke weed, be happy, and Stay Blazed!

Stoner Commandments

Stoner Commandments | Stoner Blog

The weed gods have spoken and set forth Ten Commandments that stoners everywhere should follow!

These commandments are important to the stoner community and should be followed! Disregarding the Stoner Commandments is obviously a violation and is grounds for some serious attitude from your fellow pothead buddies. Be sure to remember these ten things next time you’re getting baked!


 

1. Don’t hog the piece!

Hit it and pass it! It’s unfair if you’re telling a longwinded story and your poor, sober friend next to you is salivating over the bowl that you keep waving around in front of his face. Hogging the bowl is a surefire way to get your friends mad!

article-2312248-196781A6000005DC-313_634x423


2. Avoid asking for fronts.

If someone is selling weed in your circle of friends, don’t start begging for ones and fives from your buddies. If you don’t have money, then you don’t smoke. Unless you have nice friends that’ll smoke you up. Just make sure to return the favor the next time they need help!marijuana-generic-in-bag


3. Thou shalt waketh & baketh… EVERY DAY!

The wake and bake is a crucial part to every pothead’s day and without that first bowl, nothing is possible. Make sure that when you wake up in the morning, you be sure to fit “smoking” in to your morning routine!

4. Torching the bowl means someone is going to take it away from you.

It’s not hard to corner a bowl, even if there is a fan in the room. Just make sure to keep the lighter or wick to one side of the bowl, rather than just shoving the whole flame in to the center of the bowl. Give everyone the chance to enjoy that fresh green taste!

5. If you take a hit from the bong and can’t manage to clear it.

Try not to waste the smoke by handing it to the person next to you without covering the top. Wasted smoke is wasted THC and no one likes to waste that!

6. So you finally bought that super dope lighter that’s been taunting you at the gas station for a week.

Now it’s your job to keep track of it. Your best bet is to buy a boring lighter for smoke sessions. Using your favorite Bic while smoking at a party will get your lighter stolen and that’s no one’s fault but yours. Keep track of your Bics!

7. No stoner shall disrespect another stoner without instigation… AND DON’T INSTIGATE.

Causing issues with other stoners is definitely a no-no. Respect is a huge deal in the pot community. Get along or get out is my motto.

8. Don’t… EVER… Rip off a fellow stoner.

This not only means stealing weed but stealing glass, smoking utensils (dabbers, nails, grinders, etc), and papers. This also means that you should never sell weed for more than you know it’s worth. That means don’t sell your little brother a gram for $40. That’s absurd and completely immoral.

9. Never waste perfectly good marijuana!

Throwing out vaporized weed is included in this. If you prefer to smoke out of a vape, please make sure that you are saving your vaporized weed. You can still make food with it and you get to use your weed twice! Please tell me why this would be a bad thing for any stoner?!

10. Don’t panic.

Some stoners get paranoid but you just have to chill out! Getting riled up while around your friends will earn you a black check mark and no one will want to smoke with the paranoid pot head. 😉

Stoner Couples Finding the Time

Stoner Couples Finding the Time | StonerDays

Relationships these days can be difficult, most people are just to busy with work, school or just daily tasks,  finding the time to invest in a relationship can be a pain. With the world constantly changing in technology social medias have made it easy, giving those that are busy the time to meet people on the go. Thankfully for stoners, smoking with friends can be a great way to meet new people and if you’re single or perhaps you just need to make new friends in general. Basing a relationship on weed can lead to a very awesome partnership between two people, your conversations will be simple and you’ll both more then likely get a couple of good laughs in.

stoner-couples-stonerdays-1

 

Smoking together gives couples a nice pass time. The process of rolling up together or perhaps just packing a bong together is something that is much better when in the company of another person. Having a partner there with you almost always guarantees you have a wake and bake partner, someone to share stoney stories with, or someone to make late night fast food runs with. Even stoners who tend to be more on the anti social side can’t say that they dislike smoking with a significant other. You can relax easier, laugh more, and you can just enjoy each others company.

Cannabis is also said to be an aphrodisiac of sorts, considering that the substance increases blood flow and makes the body more sensitive to touch. The plant is often used as a sexual stimulant, increasing not only the great feelings that accompany sex but the connection to your partner as well, giving you both a feeling of oneness. There are tons of books on this subject, all claiming that cannabis is a great way to spice up a couple’s sex life, simply by being smoked beforehand. And once you’ve experienced this, chances are that you won’t want to ever have sex without cannabis again.

stoner-couples-stonerdays-3

The couples that smoke together tend to stay together. Not just because the plant advocates for great sex but also because stoners tend to be less violent and more apt to discussions rather than fights, allowing the relationship to be less turbulent than say, a couple that constantly drinks alcohol. Two stoners definitely make a great match!

Study To Begin On Veterans With PTSD

Study To Begin On Veterans With PTSD | Stoner Guide

Of all of the patients that need cannabis, veterans are some that need it the most. Suffering from PTSD and other after effects of the wars they’ve been in lead to some of the highest suicide rates in the country. With very limited VA medical options, our soldiers are forced to ingest Oxycontin, Xanax, Percocet, and other heavy drugs to combat their symptoms. This leads to high addiction rates among vets, showing that there needs to be another way to treat PTSD in the people who fought for our country. But finally, a bit of good news for vets hoping to have PTSD recognized as a qualification for medical marijuana.

Researchers in Maryland and Arizona are on the lookout for veteran volunteers that are willing to smoke up to two joints worth of pot a day in a new study that is aimed at finding out if cannabis actually relieves the symptoms of PTSD. “We’re not arguing that cannabis is a cure but our hypothesis is that is will at least reduce symptoms,” said the study organizer Dr. Sue Sisley. The $2.2 million study was paid for by a grant from the state of Colorado to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies will be conducted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland as well as Sisley’s Scottsdale Research Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. More than 100 veterans have already volunteered for the study.

The selected participants will be the first randomized, controlled trial in the United States to objectively test cannabis as a legitimate treatment for PTSD. After the subjects undergo a two week screening and assessment process, they will be assigned to smoke one out of four types of cannabis. One will have high levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Another will have high levels of CBD, which is the suggested antidepressant in cannabis, as well as reducing anxiety. The third will be an equal balance of both CBD and THC. This is the group that the Veterans Alliance for Medical Marijuana reports is generally the favored kind of cannabis among combat veterans who are using cannabis to relieve PTSD. And the final group will be a placebo and will get no significant levels of either THC or CBD.

For the first two days, the veterans will be observed for four hours after smoking to ensure that they have no negative reactions to the cannabis they’ve ingested. In addition, they will have to take a physical exam and an in-depth psychological assessment, once in the beginning of the study and again at the end. There will also be regular blood tests and other body monitoring throughout the study. But after all of that, the participants will be given their weed to smoke (up to 1.8 grams a day). They will be able to smoke as much as they want within that limit, although electronic vapes cannot be used. The participants will also be given an iPad to track their use, both writing about the experience and providing a video journal. They will also wear a watch designed to track their sleep patterns.

After the three weeks is up, there will be a two week washout period in which the vets will not smoke at all and then begins the next set of tests and assessments. At the end, they will be asked if they will continue to use medical marijuana or if they will find another method of treatment for their symptoms. If this trial is a success, officials at the California based Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) says they intend to seek use of smoking botanical cannabis as a federally approved prescription drug.

A New Study On Cannabis/Alcohol Aggression Shows…

A New Study On Cannabis/Alcohol Aggression Shows… | Stoner Blog

Alcohol and cannabis are placed side by side for comparison constantly. People are always talking about how “cannabis is more dangerous than alcohol” or “alcohol is more dangerous than cannabis”. There are those who suggest cannabis laws reflect alcohol laws, ie public intoxication, open container laws, and in those horrible states, internal possession. But are alcohol and cannabis even in the same league? The same sport? The only reason anyone compares the two is because alcohol also had to go through prohibition before it became widely accepted/advertised/used. A new study produced from the Netherlands and published in the journal Psychopharmacology takes a shot at shooting down the “cannabis is more dangerous than alcohol” myth once and for all.

The study was pretty simple, actually. Take three groups of people. One group of twenty individuals who drink (three drinks a day per man and two a day per woman), twenty-one heavy cannabis users (those who smoked at least three times a week), and a group of twenty control subjects who didn’t partake in either substance. The researchers got the alcohol group drunk enough so that they’re BAC measured at 0.08, which is the level at which you become impaired. And then the researchers got the cannabis users high, giving them 300 micro-grams of THC per kilogram of body weight, ingested via vaporizer. The control group just sat around and did nothing.

Each group then underwent a series of tests. First, they started with the “single category implicit association test”, meaning the subjects had to match positive and negative words to photos that showed aggressive behavior, such as punching or kicking. The second test consisted on the subjects playing a game on a computer. In the game, they had an opponent that they were told was winning money away from them but their adversary was only a computer. Aggression in each subject was measured before and after the test by asking each participant how angry they felt on a 1-100 scale. To be sure of their findings, the researchers had the alcohol and cannabis groups complete the tests a second time, a week later and sober, just to gather all possible information.

The results? Alcohol users rated themselves as more angry when they were drunk and they also tried harder to undermine the computer opponent in the game. The stoner group, on the other hand, showed less aggression toward the computer game and overall, less anger throughout the entire test. This study falls in with the others of it’s kind, including the one done in 2014 that showed couples who smoke have a lower rate of domestic violence. It just goes to show that those dramatic headlines that shout about stoners in psychosis jumping off of buildings or shooting themselves (while tragic) probably contain other factors and are not commonplace to begin with.

Millennials Are The New Hippies

Millennials Are The New Hippies | Stoner Blog

When I was in high school, my algebra teacher always told me that if I had been born when she was, I would’ve been one of the flower crown wearing hippies of the time. It was never something I thought much about seeing as how I didn’t even really smoke weed until I had left high school (I tried once or twice but we were young and the aluminum can wasn’t that appealing to me). But she made that comment a few times over the course of my last year in high school and it never really struck me as anything important until now.

The hippies were the “rebels” of their generation. They weren’t going to be forced in to going along with mainstream culture and they didn’t listen to their parents. War wasn’t something they wanted a part in, they just wanted to chill and do drugs with their friends. They lived in small studio apartments in the city with obnoxiously high rent and mostly lived paycheck to paycheck, not far off from what the millennial generation does today. Us millennials call things by different names; ecstasy is called Molly, LSD is acid, and people love mushrooms again. Even those of us who went out and got “real” jobs still enjoy a blunt after a long day of work and those who don’t have “real” jobs spend time goofing off and still trying to figure out what to do with their lives (we’ll hopefully have that figured out by age thirty).

Millennials always reminisce about the 60s and 70s. Those were the times to be alive but if you really think about it, those times are repeating themselves now. We have serious issues to deal with now just like there was then, such as the approaching election in November or the racial issues that still divide our country. But when we aren’t having panic attacks about the future and the violence in the world, we spend our time at festivals and parties or with our friends, trying as hard as we can to continue to feel young for as long as possible and trying to avoid letting the sourness of the world engulf us.

It’s 2016. The millennial generation will soon be the ruling force in the country and hopefully, we can do some things better than the Baby Boomers before us. We’ve already done big things; we made weed legal after years of prohibition. We have lobbied for cannabis and have been arrested for it. We have seen our friends and family go to jail for trying to help themselves and others by providing natural medicine. But we’ve seen studies released that show cannabis can help to treat cancer, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, depression, migraines, anxiety, ALS, multiple sclerosis, and the list keeps going. We’ve proven that stoners aren’t lazy, stay at home losers. We’ve changed the minds of Baby Boomers and those suffering from Reefer Madness. We’ve come a long way.

Cannabis Use and Donating Blood

Cannabis Use and Donating Blood | Stoner Blog

Recent tragedies have called for the community to rise up and donate blood. The shooting in Orlando, Florida specifically required a large amount of blood and many people rose to help the people who lived through this horrible event. But, as some know, there are conditions for donating blood. Such as the fact that if you have gotten a tattoo or piercing in the last six months, you can’t donate blood. So what about stoners? People who smoke tend to be very generous but could being a pothead prevent you from helping your fellow humans?

The answer seems to be no. The American Red Cross, the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the US, collects and processed 40% of the blood supply. They distribute it to about 2600 hospitals and transfusion centers around the country. In their Common Questions pamphlet for those new to donating blood, the Red Cross states that while they do not encourage the use of controlled substances, “marijuana or alcohol use does not necessarily disqualify you from giving blood as long as you are feeling well. If you have EVER injected any illegal drugs, you can never give blood.”

When the American Red Cross was asked directly about cannabis users giving blood. They stated that they do not test for THC but they will not accept someone who is under the influence at the time of the donation. They suggest that people who are donating are well rested, well fed, and “feeling well”, which basically translates into “not high”. If the Red Cross staff believe you’re stoned when you show up to donate blood, they will turn you down. If you smoked the night before, you’re good to go.

Since your body breaks THC down in to 11-OH-THC and 11-nor-Carboxy-THC, which is non-psychoactive. Enzymes in the liver break the 11-OH-THC down even further in to the 11-nor-Carboxy-THC. The process takes a few hours but when it’s done, you’re no longer high.

Cannabis will not prevent you from donating blood. If you just take a night off from smoking and wake up, eat breakfast, and give blood, you could save a life. Being a stoner doesn’t mean you don’t have to get involved and now you have no excuse to (unless you a have gotten a new piercing or tattoo). It’s important to remember that the summer months are the hardest for blood drives, as people partying on vacation are less able to donate. Get out there and donate blood!

Cannabis and Music

Cannabis and Music | Stoner Blog

Stoners will tell you until they’re blue in the face that smoking cannabis makes music sound much better. From the beats to the lyrics, potheads swear that tunes sound better and mean more when you’re high. Weed is a popular concert-going item and many people smoke a joint while jamming to their favorite musician, whether it be at a hip hop concert or a basement metal show. But why do stoners like music so much? Why do these two always seem to go hand in hand?

Music has been proven to have positive effects on the mind. Back in high school, the “cool” teachers used to let kids listen to their iPods while taking tests or some would play Mozart or Bach from a CD player. Even plants know that music is healthy, studies have shown that plants will react in positive ways (depending on the vibrational frequencies) to music that is played for them during growth. New Scientist, a medical journal, among others have shown studies that prove music is beneficial to all kinds of medical situations. It can be used to focus the mind, calm down, or energize, depending on the kind of music. Cannabis has been shown to help with these things as well, so perhaps the two form some sort of amazing effect when combined?

A study conducted in 2011 regarding the modulation of auditory and visual processing where the subjects were given THC and CBD showed that THC activated and deactivated certain areas in the brain which controlled the hearing and seeing senses. CBD did not have an effect on these areas. So THC has an effect on the way we hear music as well as the way that we process visual items. It was stated by Nina Kraus (Northwestern University) that the brain uses neruons that communicate sensory information through electrical pulses. In this case, it’s the sound of the music. The increased sensory perception in the endocannabinoid system is caused by the binding of the receptors to the brain. Dopamine is released and less anxiety-causing signals are sent, which lets the stoner chill out and enjoy the music more carefully and with less internal (and external) distraction.

But since cannabis is still considered a schedule 1 drug by the federal government, there aren’t many more studies regarding the connection between cannabis and music. As the two seem to have similar effects on the human body, they could be used as a kind of therapy for people suffering with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and a multitude of other afflictions. In the meantime, it’s suggested by Stonerdays that you roll up a joint or pack your bong and smoke to some of your favorite songs. Doctors orders.

Five Reasons To Watch The Lego Movie Stoned

STONED

Five Reasons To Watch The Lego Movie Stoned | Stoner Blog

Let’s face it, kids movies these days aren’t just made for kids. They’re cute and flashy, with the occasional underlying adult themes. One of the best things about being an adult and watching kids movies? Watching them stoned. Rolling a fat joint and watching the Lego Movie sounds pretty great right? If you don’t think so, here’s five reasons why you should view this hilarious (and somewhat dark) movie that was definitely made for both kids and adults a like.

stoned-lego-sd

  1. The Colors: This movie is incredibly bright and fun to look at. Since the characters are constantly jumping through different Lego worlds, the scenery changes constantly. From the Lego Wild West to Cloud Cuckoo Land (it’s as strange as it sounds), your stoned mind will be mesmerized by the bright colors and different architecture.
  2. The Actors: If you aren’t attracted to the colorfulness of the movie, you should know that it has some hilarious talent in it as well. Chris Pratt (Parks And Recreation, Guardians of the Galaxy) voices the main character, while Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) plays another. Throw in the fact that Nick Offerman (Parks And Recreation) and Will Ferrel (you know who Will Ferrel is) also make an appearance and you have a cast full of people who are going to make you laugh, especially if you’re stoned. The movie also features Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson.
  3. The Nostalgia: Considering that this is an entire world crafted out of Legos with very few real life scenes, this movie is great for the stoned mind. Most of the adults that are smoking now used to play with Legos back in the 90s. The Lego Movie brings back memories of times when we didn’t have to pay bills and go to work. You’ll feel the nostalgia even more when you’ve had a few bong rips and start thinking about Silly Putty, Polly Pocket, and that creepy crawler oven that allowed you to freak out your family and friends with rubber insects.
  4. The Adult Jokes: Right in the start of the film, we are greeted by the main character, Emmett, going about his daily business. He pays $42 for a coffee at a shop that resembles Starbucks and if you can’t sadly laugh at that while you’re stoned because it’s so relate able, I don’t know what to tell you.
  5. The Underlying Message: The Lego Movie is definitely cute and it will make you laugh but the message that the movie really seems to want to drive home? Society’s desire to stamp out creativity and imagination. The characters are all working for The Man, which is a common reoccurring theme in a lot of stoner-geared movies. Since stoners usually think of themselves as being open minded, this movie is a great visualization of the breakaway from traditional thinking and doing your own thing.

Government Neglects Medical Marijuana As PTSD Explodes

Government Neglects Medical Marijuana As PTSD Explodes

According to the Veterans Administration, which is responsible for the PTSD care of the nation’s vets, there are currently over 3 million service men and women suffering from PTSD. From flashbacks and insomnia to anxiety, nightmares and depression, veterans are coming home to America in need of help on many levels, and the last thing they need is “chemical” medicine. Though “psych” meds are prescribed almost across the board for “psychological” issues, the psychiatric manual DSM-5 doesn’t say a word about nutrition and herbs.

PTSD-7

It doesn’t have a section on Cannabis sativa either. In many states, post-traumatic-stress-disorder or PTSD is one of the many conditions that patients are hoping will be approved for medical marijuana. A growing number of veterans, however, are tired of waiting for the law to catch up with what they know in their hearts and minds to be the answer.

Veterans & Cannabis: Government neglects Veterans as PTSD epidemic explodes

PTSD-1

The number of military personnel and veterans diagnosed with and living with PTSD is higher now that it has ever previously been (Veterans and PTSD 2015). Another astounding fact is that half of these individuals never seek medical treatment for various reasons. Some argue that the Veterans Affairs Department insufficiently handles the treatment of PTSD by simply using trial and error through a list of psychoactive medications and therapy with psychiatrists who don’t seem to really care.

The combination of a feeling of hopelessness and a lack of viable treatment options often lead to suicide among those with military-related PTSD, specifically those from the Afghanistan-Iraq War. Currently, there is an average of 22 suicides a day, up from a low of 18-a-year in 2007, based on a 2012 VA suicide Data Report.

While looking for alternative treatments, many have asked the question can cannabis treat PTSD? The answer is yes, and thousands living with PTSD have found that cannabis has been a more effective treatment than any medication prescribed by the VA. Smoking it can relieve anxiety, help individuals sleep deeply and without disturbance, and also help to stave off depression. Some medical professionals even argue that the Cannabidiol (CBD) can actually help repair the brain, healing those pathways that facilitate the symptoms of PTSD.

But is it better or worse?

PTSD-2

The effects on PTSD in studies on cannabis are limited and sometimes contradictory. The VA is also concerned with a rise in the number of veterans they have documented as having what they term “marijuana dependence”. While it can help with mental health problems, it has also been suggested by some studies to cause latent or subdued pre-existing mental issues to come to the surface, such as hereditary schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

For some veterans, what is known as “cannabis use disorder” can have a negative effect on their road to wellness. Described as an inability to sleep or increase in irritability after ceasing use of the substance, this occasionally seen withdrawal symptom is far milder than that of many prescription painkillers, let alone dangerous drugs like heroin or meth. For a sufferer of mental anxiety like PTSD, however, sometimes even this mild withdrawal after steady use to treat their condition can cause negative outcomes.

A Life-Long Struggle: Demand relief now

PTSD-3

For those who fight for their country and, in the process, for their lives, the trauma inflicted is far deeper than just physical injury. The scars of war can affect the human psyche for years, for decades, for life.

Hidden PTSD amongst our culture: Natural solution

PTSD-4

In today’s modern times of self-help, therapy, and emotional understanding, health professionals have discovered an epidemic of hidden PTSD patients amongst our civilian culture. In its true definition, PTSD involves lingering negative feelings that can result from any adverse experience- getting fired, the end of a relationship, chronic illness, or even just a time when you feel like you failed at something- and that limits a person in any way.

However, even with the mounds of evidence supporting Cannabis as an all-natural solution, in November, the U.S. Senate passed an amendment that would allow VA doctors to recommend medical marijuana to vets in states where it’s legal, but that proposal failed to pass the House. So depending on the state you live, if you’re a veteran you can potentially lose access to your pain medications and treatments for testing positive for cannabis.

On average, 22 veterans commit suicide every single day and many veterans turn to medical marijuana to ease the symptoms of PTSD, but what happens when medical marijuana isn’t effective, poses legal risks or isn’t an option for you?

Well, we’ve found an effective all-natural solution for you. It’s called 1Hour Break®, and it will change how the world handles PTSD.

Kava Kava spray, saves the day

PTSD-5

1Hour Break® is a California-based company providing all-natural remedies for PTSD and anxiety. They’ve spent the last few years perfecting a breakthrough sublingual tincture made from highly concentrated extracts of organic KavaKava, Passion flower, Lemon balm, and Lobelia herbs.

Taking 1Hour Break® to relieve PTSD, anxiety, or panic attacks is simple. Anytime you feel anxious, all you do is spray 5 sprays (about 1ml) of 1Hour Break® beneath your tongue, wait ten seconds, and then swallow. Because it is absorbed underneath the tongue, it bypasses the digestive system, so the effects are felt immediately. Kava Kava, sourced from the South Pacific, is the main ingredient and has been proven safe and therapeutic for relieving anxiety. It works by binding to various receptors in the amygdala that regulate feelings of fear and anxiety, and in turn promotes calmness, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. It’s like getting a big hug from Mother Nature herself.

1Hour Break with cannabis: Supercharge your buzz

PTSD-6

As someone who has suffered from PTSD and feelings of fear, doubt, panic, avoidance, anger, irritability, sadness, shame, vulnerability, nightmares, and distrust for most of my adult life, I have tried everything available to relieve my anxieties. I have never used a natural anti-anxiety medication that has worked… Ever. So, believe me when I tell you, I went into this a skeptic. So without anything to lose, I had the chance to try 1Hour Break® Version 2.0 in Mint flavor and I was surprised by the effects.

After just five sprays I noticed a pleasurable tingling sensation under my tongue and I quickly felt my heart tempo slow, my panic subdue, my mind release its tension and I felt a warm blanket of calmness over me. It was a familiar calm associated with Xanax but a million times better. The taste was minty and fresh, and the numbness lasted about 20 minutes and assured me it was working, and I remained calm and relaxed for well over an hour. I’m truly thankful that a product like this exists, it will now be an integral part of my “tool kit”. I’m certain 1Hour Break® is effective and can benefit the thousands of people currently dealing with PTSD related issues

1Hour Break® along with cannabis is simply the perfect all-natural combination – a no-brainer, in fact. Imagine experiencing a strong, uplifting, clear-headed buzz without any anxious side effects. You’ll experience only the positive feelings of a supercharged buzz, and none of the negative.

Are Dabs Really The “Crack” of Cannabis?

dabs-crack

Are Dabs Really The “Crack” of Cannabis? | Stoner Blog

Some of the old school stoners or some that haven’t really been on the internet (or people that are still stuck in reefer madness) genuinely think that cannabis concentrates are comparable to crack. Confusing to say the least, especially since cannabis concentrates (and “dabs”) have been around since the 80s. The only reason we’re now hearing about this now is that cannabis in the spotlight… And the people who don’t like it need something to complain about.

If you don’t know, dabs are a concentrated form of THC. The honey/wax/crumble like substance in place on a heated piece of titanium, glass, quartz, or ceramic and the heat vaporizes the concentrate. Dabs are stronger than buds, testing anywhere between 50 to 90% THC. Flower usually tops out at around 29% THC. Some people, the high from a dab lasts far longer than a bong rip, which leads some people to prefer dabs, for the fact that you need less coupled with the purity.

stonerdays-logo-smallWhile these side effects are blamed mostly on dabs, it does also happen with cannabis flower.

On one hand, you have people who will smoke dabs and freak out. They will get extremely paranoid and anxious. There are those who will even get sick from the dabs.They will throw up, have panic attacks, and feel weak/dizzy. While these side effects are blamed mostly on dabs, it does also happen with cannabis flower. Every once in a while, you will encounter someone who has smoked a bowl and had a massive panic attack. There are also people who smoke dabs and freak out. Seeing as how every individual processes THC differently, this fact isn’t surprising.

Justin Kander, the head of research and development at Aunt Zelda’s (a cannabis concentrate company that craft edibles), says that cannabis concentrates are not like heroin or crack but that the high doses should be taken properly. From what he has seen in his time in the industry, Kander says that continued use over a long period of time can potentially cause permanent paranoia and anxiety. Even longer use may even increase the risk of brain damage but that is incredibly rare and almost unheard of. Another thing to be aware of is the increased tolerance. Prolonged use of cannabis concentrates can cause extremely high tolerances, which will ultimately result in you having to take a break.

stonerdays-logo-smallSome people handle substances differently and there are always people who will end up getting really unlucky.

Dabs are not like crack or meth or heroin. Some people handle substances differently and there are always people who will end up getting really unlucky. The high dose of cannabis concentrate may cause negative effects but for patients with cancer or other severe illnesses, it can be lifesaving. The general consensus? Dabbing every day might end up having negative side effects. Sometimes it’s good to just take a concentrate-tolerance break.

Does Marijuana Give You Anxiety?

Does Marijuana Give You Anxiety? You’ll Need This | Stoner Blog

Anxiety can be completely debilitating, just ask anyone who suffers from the mind-numbing, pulse-racing mental disorder. As a person suffering with anxiety for over 14 years I can attest that there are a variety of prescription drugs that can help tame the unrest, but most life-long suffers worry about the long term effects of Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications. Many patients turn to medical marijuana as a way to ease the symptoms of anxiety, but what happens when marijuana isn’t effective, triggers irrational paranoia, or you feel it’s not appropriate to medicate, such as at work, at school, or with family?

Well, now we have an all-natural solution for you. It’s called 1Hour Break®, and it will change how the world handles anxiety.

Anytime you feel anxious, all you do is spray 5 sprays (about 1ml) of 1Hour Break® beneath your tongue, wait ten seconds, and then swallow. Because it is absorbed underneath the tongue, it bypasses the digestive system, so the effects are felt immediately. Kava Kava, sourced from the South Pacific, is the main ingredient and has been proven safe and therapeutic for relieving anxiety. It works by binding onto various receptors in the amygdala that regulate feelings of fear and anxiety, and in turn promotes calmness, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. It’s like getting a big hug from Mother Nature herself.

1Hour Break with cannabis: Supercharge your buzz

 image

I had the pleasure of trying 1Hour Break® Version 2.0 in Honey flavor. As someone who has suffered from anxiety since my teens, I have tried everything available to relieve my symptoms. I was pleasantly surprised by the effects of 1Hour Break®; after just five sprays, I instantly noticed a numbing sensation under my tongue and felt my pulse slow down and my mind got that familiar calming sensation associated with Xanax. The numbness lasted about 20 minutes and assured me it was working, and I remained calm and relaxed for well over an hour. I have never used a natural anti-anxiety medication that has worked… ever. So, believe me when I tell you, I went into this a skeptic, but came out beyond satisfied. I’m certain 1Hour Break® is effective and can benefit both cannabis users and non cannabis users alike.

1Hour Break® along with cannabis is simply the perfect all-natural combination – a no-brainer, in fact. Imagine experiencing a strong, uplifting, clear-headed buzz without any anxious side effects. You’ll experience only the positive feelings of a supercharged buzz, and none of the negative.

Cannabis & Memory

cannabis-and-memory

Cannabis & Memory | Stoner Blog

For years, people have believed that cannabis effects the memory formation in the human brain. Those against the plant have insisted that long term use (or even short term) will kill your brain cells and make you dumb. This fact is highly contested, with supporters arguing that some of the smartest, most successful people have admitted to smoking (and enjoying) cannabis. Not only that but memory is a difficult thing to measure and there are different types of memory, such as short term memory and long term memory, among others. So what does cannabis do to memory?

The main compound in cannabis, THC, has shown to have an effect on short term memory. It creates a difficulty in encoding memories. Those who use cannabis sometimes show trouble in forming new memories while under the influence. While this is like being “black out” drunk, the effects are not as severe as cannabis. Short term recall is also effected by THC. Stoners have difficulty recalling events while high and even after the high wears off. But those who continuously indulge in cannabis have shown in studies to develop a tolerance to these effects of THC. The more cannabis is smoked, the less difficulty the user had recalling the memory.

Studies show that the memory impairments tend to be temporary. One of these such studies showed that while THC can effect memory for two hours after consumption, there are no lasting effects after 24 to 48 hours. It was also shown that cannabis will not effect the ability to recall existing memories, like your high school, your address, your siblings, or your parents.

As for cannabis and long term memory, a study published by JAMA Internal Medicine, it was shown that people who consume more cannabis over five or more years developed worse verbal memory recall as compared to those who consumed less cannabis or none at all. The study consisted of nearly 3400 Americans over a period of twenty five years. Verbal recall was tested and Reto Auer, a professor at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, was the study’s main author. The results showed that those subjects who smoked every day could recall 8.5 words out of 15. Subjects who smoked less or none at all could recall 9 out of 15 words. While .5 words doesn’t seem like a whole lot, Auer suggested that the longer someone used cannabis, the worse their memory would become. But only 8% of those in the study considered themselves heavy smokers and they also didn’t find that the 8% had any other cognitive abilities impacted by their cannabis use, such as the ability to focus and process information.

New studies are being released that are suggesting that cannabis may actually benefit memory and the plant is being studied for use in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and Parkinson’s. CBD, one of the other compounds found in cannabis, has promise of being able to also fight the brain damage caused by alcohol abuse and binge drinking. CBD reduced alcohol induced cell death in the brain by up to 60%, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. So does cannabis have an effect on memory? More research is definitely needed to gain a definitive answer but as of right now, the effects don’t seem nearly as bad as someone who drinks a lot of alcohol.

Pizza Box Turned Pipe

Pizza Box Turned Pipe | Stoner Guide

Stoners know how to create something out of nothing… Or better yet, how to create something out of a list of seemingly non-related items. There are hundreds of jokes about how a stoner can grab anything around them and turn it in to a smoking device. Pipes have been made from fruits, vegetables, recyclables, candy, and many other objects. But a new company called Push For Pizza is taking this stoner creativity to a whole new level with their new app.

14-push-for-pizza-pipe.w560.h560

It’s called Push For Pizza and it’s revolutionary in stoner pizza ordering. Not only does the app offer legitimate one click ordering but when your pizza arrives, the box can be taken apart and reassembled as a pipe that you can actually smoke out of. Part of the cardboard box that the pizza comes in makes the pipe itself, while the little pizza holder that’s normally found in the center of the pie makes the bowl. And while those little pizza toppers are usually plastic, Push For Pizza went the extra mile and made theirs out of a temperature resistant ceramic. The Pizza Box Pipe is totally legit and deserves the utmost stoner respect.

pizza-pipe

The co-founder of Push For Pizza, Cyrus Summerlin, has figured out the simplest (yet most ingenious way) to corner the stoner market. “It is common to crave food when one gets high,” he says. We are all quite familiar with the munchies. “It is also typical practice to order a quick pizza to satisfy this craving. We are aware of these trends and decided to combine these two interests in to an actual product.” Summerlin apparently knows that stoners can sometimes be strapped for cash and the Pizza Box Pipe materials come at no extra charge. So buy your pizza, get a pipe. And these brilliant things can be used more than once as long as you’re careful with the lighter.

Pizza-Box-Weed-Pipe-by-Push-For-Pizza_2-800x396

Even though the Pizza Box Pipe is only in the prototype stage, we can expect to see it begin to surface for the general public soon. So brace yourselves for one of the greatest stoner/food mashups ever. Let’s face it, there’s nothing better than having your pizza and smoking the box too.

Why Choose a Stoner Chick

Why Choose a Stoner Chick | Stoner Blog

Life is hard enough with the stress caused from bills, work and even kids, so lighting up at the end of a long stressful day can be your way of release. And as for finding a worthy mate thats a challenge in itself as well. Although this article is mainly speaking to men, we would like to take the time and say thank you to all our stoner women out there doing the most with life. So from everybody at StonerDays “Thank You!” Let’s get to it. Here are 10 reasons we choose stoner women over non smoking women.

01 Smoking during PMS. Chicks that smoke weed will defiantly be lighting up during their time of the month. Simply summed up by the health information outlet Medic8:

“Marijuana can cause irregular or missed periods. However, some women claim that it increases blood flow which reduces painful cramping.”

Anyway you look at it your stoned lady friend will feel so much better about herself and life if she is smoking that sweat Mary Jane while menstruating.

stoner-chicks-10


02 Easy to let go of the small things in life. At times life gets rough and stressing on the small things only makes it harder. Stoner chicks can let go of the small issues that arise in life by lighting up a bowl, kicking back and realizing that life is going to go on no matter what you do, but stressing about it will never help.

stoner-chicks-14


03 Sex will be awesome! Everybody enjoys getting it on. Well with a stoner chick your sex life will be more likely to improve. Not only does sex feel great while stoned but marijuana can actually help your partner achieve orgasms easier and more intense. A great combo for anyone.

stoner-chicks-17


04 Stoner Chicks are less likely to get physical. Fighting is to be expected in any healthy relationship. But according to The Daily Mail, the use of weed in any relationship is actually linked to lower rates of domestic violence:

“Findings suggest that marijuana use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards one’s partner.”

In other words, she will find it easier to forgive you.

stoner-chicks-18


05 She is more likely to be low maintenance. Not to say it’s a bad thing to pamper your stoner girl with a nice dinner and movie, but she will be more likely to understand and even suggest going somewhere chill, and not so fast pace. Allowing the both of you to really enjoy each others company.

stoner-chicks-9


06 Stoner chicks always have weed. We have all been there, no weed to smoke and it’s been a long stressful day. Well, having a stoner chick in your life will help that situation. She will not only have a rolled joint for you but a good dinner the both of you can get down on together.

stoner-chicks-19


07 She will be way easier to talk to. Which is great when your at your friends house trying to smoke and chill. She won’t drive you crazy hanging on your arm, but more likely to engage with your friends and start a conversation. Allowing you to just chill.

stoner-chicks-21


08 Stoner chicks are always up for pizza. You will never hear a stoner chick turn down a good pizza, which is awesome because how can anyone say no to pizza? Believe it or not their are those “non smoking chicks” that will say no to a pizza dinner. Crazy.

stoner-chicks-22


09 More then likely she will be generous. A good stoner chick will be more likely to buy and bring you home things you might need. So when she is out and about taking care of business you know she will be thinking of you. Just be sure to pay it back guys. Let her know she is also on your mind when your taking care of shit and buy her some flower.

stoner-chicks-8


10 Stoner chicks know how to enjoy a good laugh. Laughing is a great way to release stress and what better way then to get really baked and laugh at a good flick.

stoner-chicks-23

Of course not everyone will smoke weed in life and we get that all we’re suggesting is to make life easy and get yourself a stoner chick.

Legal State Teen Use And Cannabis

Legal State Teen Use And Cannabis | Stoner Guide

One of the heaviest arguments against cannabis legalization is that teenagers will be able to get their hands on the plant more easily than they have been able to in the past. Even though people may put a lot of faith in to this argument, you can’t argue with numbers. A Washington study done recently from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that minors, in fact, don’t feel that cannabis is any easier to obtain now than it was back in 2012 in Washington state. The survey polled tens of thousands of teens across a hundred schools each year and in 2010, 55% of teens said that it was “easy” to obtain marijuana. But in 2014 (two years after Washington legalized recreational marijuana), 54% of teens think it’s easy to get a hold of marijuana. While a 1% difference doesn’t seem like much, it’s still a decrease and not an increase, showing that cannabis is not more obtainable for young kids.

The list of the other things that have occurred in the legal states that go against the “cannabis is now easier to get a hold of for kids” theory is long. From 2012 (the year Colorado legalized cannabis) until now, the monthly teen cannabis use has fallen from 22% in 2011 to 20% in 2013. Additionally, the percentage of teens who had used cannabis at all had fallen from 45% to 39%, a considerable drop. In 2014, the Monitoring the Youth survey and the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use found that nationwide underage cannabis use had decreased slightly. The decrease occurred as the first wave of recreational laws went in to place. This decrease is chalked up to the nationwide conversations that were happening about cannabis, which promoted knowledge instead of scare tactics.

A national analysis of teen cannabis approval ratings also showed that between 2002 and 2013, teens approval of the cannabis plant didn’t increase and an NIH-funded study looked at data from 1991 to 2014 and concluded that the “passage of state medical marijuana laws does not increase adolescent use of marijuana”. Tack on the fact that a few months ago, a study released put to rest the myth that underage consumption had increased, and you have to admit that the youth of today seem much more educated when it comes to cannabis than past generations.

Colorado recently released the findings of a long running report that gives us the most detailed data on the mile high state’s recreational marijuana laws. The surveys were given out to about 40,000 Colorado students before and after cannabis legalization. The information collected showed that the students had “no significant change” in marijuana use by children under the age of 18. The number of high school students using cannabis also dropped from 23% in 2005 to 20% in 2014. But while these numbers seem promising, it was said that Colorado youth are much more likely to use cannabis than children in other states that haven’t legalized. About 13% of Colorado minors 12-17 has used cannabis in the 30 days prior to the survey, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health said. That’s 13% compared to 7% of minors the same age nationwide. So while nothing really changed, the numbers of teens able to get a hold of marijuana is higher than the national average.

The main key to keeping kids away from cannabis without the supervision of a doctor is educating them. Scare tactics won’t work, as children are always interested in what’s forbidden. Kids are very smart and it would benefit everyone if we just gave them the facts. Teaching the youth about marijuana when they’re young is the key to them using it responsibly when they’re older. By keeping them in the dark about it, they will only have to discover the plant for themselves and who knows what age that will be at. It is up to the parents to teach the kids about the wonderful plant and to make sure that kids aren’t getting a hold of it without the correct supervision.

How To Roll A Diamond Joint

how-roll-diamond-joint

How To Roll A Diamond Joint | Stonerdays

The diamond joint, one of my personal favorites, is one of the simplest, yet most elegant techniques to roll a trick joint. Although it looks like a complicated roll, with ample practice, this joint can easily be mastered.

Materials Needed:

  • Rolling Papers
  • Scissors
  • Lighter
  • Sticky strip from the rolling paper
  • Marijuana

Step 1:

Begin by rolling a fully-packed standard joint (preferably king size) with a crutch.

Step 2:

Roll two identical crutchless joints. Leave both ends untied with a few centimeters (one finger nail length) of open paper.

Step 3:

Take both crutchless joints and set them parallel to each other. Pick a side and place one sticky strip two finger nail lengths down on the joints and wrap the remaining sticky around the joints. Twist together the ends closest to the sticky strip. This will be the top of the Diamond Joint.

Step 4:

Place a thumb on the sticky strip. Gently form a gap between the joints and carefully bend the middle of each joint, away from one another, to resemble the shape of a diamond.

Step 5:

Flip the combined joints over to continue to the next step. This time, stick a second sticky strip one-finger nail length down the end of the two joints (leaving room to add the fully-packed standard joint).

Step 6:

Take a third sticky strip and place it directly above the previous sticky strip, leaving half a fingernail length left of the open paper. This purpose of this step is to seal off any potential gaps, without distorting the open paper’s shape. Again, carefully bend the middle of the two joints to adjust the diamond form.

Step 7:

On the same side, use a pair of scissors to cut out the section of open paper that merges at the base of the diamond, creating a larger hole where the fully-packed standard joint will be inserted. After clearing out the base of the diamond, insert the fully-packed standard joint while using a sticky strip to secure the junction of the joints.

Step 8:

Place another sticky strip one finger nail length below where the joints merge. Once in place, alternate looping the rest of the sticky strip through the center of the diamond then around the base. Repeat for the other side of the diamond (If the diamond joint is still not sturdy, or contains air holes, then simply repeat step 8 until fully secure).

Step 9: 

Finally, skim the flame of a lighter across the wet sticky strips to reinforce bond of the rolling papers; reshape the diamond form, and that’s how you roll a diamond joint.

Why Couples Should Smoke Together

Why Couples Should Smoke Together | Stoner Guide

We live in a society that definitely doesn’t hide violence. It’s pretty sad how much you see it on the news. Especially domestic violence, which seems to be more common every day. Couples that have the occasional fight aren’t that bad. In fact, studies have shown that arguing can be healthy. But a fight is different than bickering and it’s definitely not okay when things get violent. However, thanks to a study partially funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse, it has recently been discovered that couples who smoke cannabis together have more marital success as compared to non smoking couples.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-8

Smoking cannabis is a relaxing activity when shared with a significant other. We all know that relationships are work and our partners all do something that bothers us. After smoking, these small annoyances fade away and it is easier to communicate the way you feel about certain things getting done around the house or certain things in the relationship. By smoking together, you relax better as a couple and it is easier to laugh and to stop dwelling on the little things.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-7

Additionally, cannabis enhances feelings during sex, making the whole thing feel that much better. THC is known for containing euphoric properties that are heightened during intercourse. In this sort of intimate setting, the plant also allows you to relax and enjoy the moment that much more. It doesn’t impair the senses like alcohol but it will also let you loosen up a little bit.

Studies have shown that couples who smoke together have considerably lower levels of domestic abuse, contrary to the legal substance alcohol, which has been known to heighten violence.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-4

It allows people to be happier and to experience the relationship in a healthy way. Not only that but a study done in 2013 discovered that THC lowers the brain’s reaction to negative stimuli. So in serious debates, couples that smoke weed together are able to keep their cool longer and better than couples who don’t smoke, making their arguments more productive and less explosive.

couples-smoke-stonerdays-6

In short, it’s a good idea to smoke weed with the person you love. It will help you listen to each other, love each other more deeply, and understand one another better. It’s worth a try, am I right? Now roll up a joint and share it with that special someone!

Cannabis Talk On Mother’s Day

Cannabis Talk On Mother’s Day?

Stoners have a tough time with the parental discussion on marijuana reform. For some, the talk is extremely easy and some parents even raise their kids and actually teach their children about marijuana in the positive, truthful way. Other stoners don’t get so lucky and wind up getting taught the negative side of cannabis, which can prove extremely difficult when the child becomes a cannabis enthusiast. Even parents can shun their kids based on the simple opinion of a particular plant. It’s not fair and it’s definitely not right but it does happen. If you’re going to talk to your mom about cannabis reform, it’s recommended that you pick Mother’s Day to do so.

mothers-day-stonerdays

 

Some people are lucky enough to smoke with their mom and that’s awesome! But for others, it’s not so easy. Some stoners still hide the fact that they smoke from their parents, afraid of what their elders might say or do. On the other hand, you have stoners like myself, whose parents just can’t seem to bring themselves to get over the fact that it’s simply just a plant. The best way to talk to your mom about cannabis on Mother’s Day? Nicely. Simple enough! Keep the conversation upbeat and positive. If your mom starts to get frustrated, just kind of let her talk. It may be tough to hear what she has to say (parents tend to not know a whole lot about our good old Mary Jane and their arguments can sometimes be face-palm worthy, but it’s the only way she’s going to let you get a word in… And listen.

mothers-day-stonerdays-1

Moms are important. Without them, you wouldn’t be here. Sometimes, we disagree with them. But it’s so important that you talk to your mom (and your dad) about marijuana reform. The legalizing of cannabis will probably happen in our lifetime and it’s important to prepare them for the booming industry that’s slowly creeping across the country. And if you do plan on speaking with your mom about cannabis on Mother’s Day, it’s highly recommended from the Stonerdays team that you bring along some flowers… And not the kind stoners like either!

What Is Rosin | StonerDays

What Is Rosin?

If you haven’t heard of rosin yet, you might be living under a rock. This “new” way to make cannabis concentrates is making stoners‘ lives easier all over the world. With no solvent and a super easy process, rosin is something that even the most basic stoner can make with zero risk of blowing themselves up. All that’s needed is a hair straightener, parchment paper, and some nug. It’s so silly easy, it’s almost impossible to mess it up. By placing the nug in the parchment paper and folding it in half and applying heat and pressure by squeezing the nug in the straightener, the concentrated THC is pressed from the flower, providing you with a totally solventless, absolutely lovely final product.

ROSIN-2

But when you make this beautiful cannabis concentrate, you’re left with flattened little weed chips. What to do with those? Some people would let them go to waste and just throw them in the trash. There are others that save these chips and store them in a jar until they find something to do with them. Of course there are stoners that will smoke them. The chips don’t taste that bad; they are slightly harsher than bud so just be aware of that before you load them up in your bong. But if you don’t feel like smoking them, the best thing that I’ve found to do with your leftover rosin chips is bake them in to edibles.

ROSIN-CHIPS

 

Now I’m sure you’re asking if the chips have enough THC left in them to get you high. The answer is a firm yes. The chips, while considerably less potent than they were in nug form, are still quite usable in edibles. You need to use more than you would use if you were using bud but they still work… And they work well. The most amount of rosin chips that I’ve put in to a batch of coconut oil brownies was 22 grams of pressed buds. These treats were so strong that people could only eat half of them or risk sleeping for 16 straight hours.

So here’s a very simple recipe for my coconut oil canna-brownies using rosin chips!

Five Marijuana Myths

Five Marijuana Myths

Everyone these days is familiar with the tactics used by DARE and films like Reefer Madness. This ridiculous propaganda leads many to believe that cannabis is a killer plant, something that will make you stupid and slow. But in reality, that’s not true. So much new information has flooded the media regarding cannabis, making these awful arguments look even worse. With little factual backing and even less logic, these myths no longer scare anyone away from looking at marijuana with an open mind.

01 Marijuana Will Make You Lazy

marijuana-myths-1
I know that this myth is one that is pretty well engrained into our modern society, although it is very slowly starting to crack under the weight of all the new information we get on a daily basis. It has long been said that stoners lack motivation and left to their own devices will sit on a bean bag chair on the floor, unless harassed by their talking dog. However, with star athletes such as Michael Phelps (who has enough gold medals to smelt a sweet gold toilet), coming out as marijuana smokers, it is only a matter of time before this myth goes the way of the gumby fade.

02 Marijuana Will Get You Pregnant

marijuana-myths-2
This one is a bit confusing to me and takes a very closed mind to even work at all. Some people argue that smoking pot will lead to pregnancy (pause to ponder). It is more likely that if someone is high and having sex, they would forget to finish the job and prematurely make a sandwich. Considering weed is not made of sperm, and is not injected into the female anatomy with a turkey baster, I am at a loss and will leave you to make your own conclusions on this one. P.S. Alcohol seems like it should be the real target on this one. Attend a high school party and see my point.

03 Marijuana Will Make You Stupid

marijuana-myths-3
I will start this by saying my father was a daily weed smoker and was one of the smartest people I have ever met. This man could grab a joint and a puzzle and solve it in minutes while everyone else gave up half way though and smashed it on the floor in defeat. The idea that weed could actually make you less intelligent is one of the myths most under fire today. To suggest that a daily or even casual toker is less intelligent than a non smoker seems all the more damned when you read what the non smokers believe happens when you introduce the sticky into your life.

04 Marijuana Is As Dangerous As Heroin

marijuana-myths-4
I will leave the statistics out of this and just say that I live in a state that has a serious heroin problem at the moment. Every single day there are shootings and overdoses and the numbers are only going up. I have people with less teeth in their head than eyes asking me for change every time I walk into any store with a door. On the flip side of this coin are the stoners. Never in my life have I seen someone on the corner begging for weed and there’s a simple reason for this. Weed makes most jobs easier to deal with while the people on heroin are falling asleep in traffic. I will take the dude confused about which snacks to buy over the guy begging for “gas money” to get back to his “sick aunt” any day.

05 Marijuana Has No Medicinal Use

marijuana-myths-5
The myth here is particularly common and convenient with Big Pharma behind it and it is not hard to see why. There is a TON of money to be made with weed being illegal. Marijuana is easy to grow and comes out of the ground basically ready to go, so any company that say, makes millions by testing and selling harmful pills, will not like a medicine that anyone can grow in their own back yard. As someone that suffered from not only migraines but anorexia, I can tell you that marijuana pretty much saved my life. I watched my mother go through radiation treatment as well eat a pallet of pills that did everything from make her hair fall out to make her food taste like ash in her mouth, all while draining her entire bank account and will to live. Anyone that says that marijuana has no medical applications has never tried it, and therefore has no business entering the discussion.

How To Talk To Children About Cannabis

How To Talk To Children About Cannabis

Kids these days are the future of our generation, obviously, much like we were fifteen-twenty years ago. Unfortunately for us, the youth is more preoccupied with how many followers they have on Twitter rather than the real issues that are at stake. One of these such issues being the state of cannabis in society. As the self-proclaimed green generation, it is up to us to teach our children the truth about weed, instead of the scare tactics that most of us grew up with. Programs like DARE still exist and aim to deter children away from cannabis with “facts” that primarily comes from Reefer Madness.

teenagers-cannabis

For a lot of twenty one to thirty year olds, their parents spent most of their time talking about the negative effects of cannabis. Not once when I was growing up did either of my parents mention any benefits to ingesting marijuana. Instead, I was repeatedly told that the plant was harmful, whether the “information” came from my parents, teachers, or the cop that taught us DARE back in fifth grade. What is unfortunate is that none of these people once suggested that marijuana might benefit me. In reality, I could’ve used marijuana a lot earlier on in life, had people told me the truth about the plant.

teenagers-cannabis-1

When it comes to kids and cannabis, the bottom line is that the truth needs to be told. No scare tactics or telling them that they’ll be stupid if they choose to smoke. What needs to be done is very simple; let them make their own choice. Cannabis use by those under eighteen years old has shown decreased myelin formation in the brain. Myelin being the protective coating around the human brain that shields it from trauma. If this layer doesn’t form correctly, it can lead to issues later in life. But with the supervision of doctors and other professionals or after a child turns eighteen, it should be up to them on whether or not they want to try smoking marijuana. It is with this idea that the child should grow up with as well, rather than having parents who constantly tell the child that marijuana is a terrible plague upon the human race.

teenagers-cannabis-2

There’s no point in hiding marijuana from kids; chances are they will get a hold of it at some point before they turn eighteen. It’s up to the parents to inform their children with knowledge that will help them to make their own choices once they’re presented with cannabis.

Five Reasons Patrick Star Is The Smoking Man’s Smoking Man

Five Reasons Patrick Star Is The Smoking Man’s, Smoking Man..

Cartoons like Spongebob were once pitched to adult TV show networks… And rejected. So when the writers changed the script for the younger minds, they failed to take out a few of the more adult references. Watching Spongebob as an adult will show you how many of these references we miss as a child and now understand. Patrick Star is a great example of an adult reference in Bikini Bottom… His attitude, demeanor, and overall existence shout “STONER” and here are five reasons why we think Patrick Star is more than fond of (sea)weed.

01 Wake and Bake Under the Sea 

SPONGEBOB SMOKING WEED

We have all woken up early in the morning to wake and bake and decided to snack, but Patrick Star takes it to a whole new level. The ever forgetful Patrick actually sets an alarm and has a Crabby Patty in a drawer next to his bed to ease the munchies in a way that most of us could only dream. Patrick seems as though he is just a piece of brain coral away from being a marijuana Mcguyver.

02 Patrick’s Family

patricks-family

There are times when someone from your past will walk up and you will have no idea who they are and Patrick is no different. However, while some of us might forget a childhood acquaintance or class mate, the pink star spends an entire episode with two star fish that he believes to be his parents. We find out at the end of their visit that they are in fact, total strangers. Patricks real parents were standing in front of Squidward’s pad confused but happy. It’s worth noting that the two star fish that did visit Pat also thought they were his parents (even though they admit to never having children).

03 Life Under a Rock

patrick-star-house-1
I don’t know about you, but there are days when I want to be out and about and days I want to just chill. Patrick is often found doing the latter, barely moving under his rock home. It is often shown that Pat does very little while waiting for his always over the top happy friend Spongebob not so “square” pants (wink,wink). The relationship reminds me of Seth Rogan and James Franco in Pineapple Express. One working and the other just making it work.

04 Highdeas

patrick-star-stoner-ideas
Everyone in Bikini Bottom seems to live in a house with furniture and drive a car, except Patrick. However, Spongebob can’t seem to pass his drivers test no matter how many times he tries. We see Pat’s abode change shape many times, sometimes it’s a rock with his legs hanging out. Other times, it’s changed to include sand furniture and even a bed. Seems to me that our pink friend is getting lifted and creative with his surroundings. I know I have done it many times.

05 Forgetting He Already Ate

giphy
A favorite episode of mine is when Pat and Bob steal a balloon on free balloon day and go on the lamb. While trying to decide what they will do with their lives, SpongeBob divvies up two candy bars, one for himself and one for Patrick. Before SpongeBob can even open his candy, Patrick has inhaled his and immediately forgotten about it. Pat goes on to suggest that SpongeBob stole his and ate it while he wasn’t looking. S-Bizzle as he is called in some circles, tries to then share his with Pat but that just won’t do. Patrick is having a serious case of the munchies that no single candy bar will get rid of. Looked like a good candy bar too.

Pot Use and Pregnancy

Pot Use and Pregnancy

By Paul Armentano

[Author’s note: This essay originally appeared in article form in the June 2007 issue of Heads Magazine. It has been updated for publication by NORML.]

Few issues concerning cannabis and health evoke more disparate opinions than the question of maternal pot use during pregnancy. It’s easy to see why. Logic presumes that if pre-natal exposure to intoxicants such as alcohol and tobacco poses proven health risks to the fetus, then exposure to pot would likely pose similar risks to a child’s health and development. Nevertheless, much of the science surrounding this issue says otherwise – though a definitive answer remains elusive.

Reasons for this are two-fold. One, it is virtually impossible for investigators to obtain permission to conduct any type of prospective clinical trial that knowingly exposes pregnant mothers – and their future offspring – to cannabis. Two, because women often face severe legal sanctions (such as the loss of child custody or incarceration) for admitting that they have smoked pot while pregnant, most mothers refuse to divulge such information – even to researchers conducting anonymous surveys years after the fact. Moreover, among the handful of surveys that have been conducted, several fail to adequately control for mothers’ use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs during the course of their pregnancy.

As a result, much of the published data assessing the extent of maternal pot use and its health implications remains limited to historical texts, studies from non-Western cultures (where the use of cannabis has gained greater social acceptability), and retrospective survey data.

POT FOR MORNING SICKNESS?

Morning Sickness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Historic references regarding the use of therapeutic cannabis for a variety of female medical conditions, including difficult childbirth, date back to the 7th century BC. According to “Cannabis Treatments in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Historical Review” by Dr. Ethan Russo, various parts of the plant – including cannabis flowers and seeds – were used by Chinese and Persian societies to induce contractions, prevent miscarriages, and reduce incidences of post-partum hemorrhage. By the mid-19th century, the use of cannabis tinctures became prevalent in Western cultures to hasten pregnancy and reduce pre-partum nausea. The historical use of cannabis use for pregnancy-associated pain and other complications is also referenced in African, Indian, and Southeast Asian cultures.

More recent documentation of the therapeutic use of cannabis by mothers-to-be is less prevalent – no doubt because of pot’s outlaw status in most parts of the world. Nevertheless, some notable references stand out in the modern literature. Writing in the journal Pediatrics in 1994, Dr. Melanie Dreher and colleagues reported that the use of cannabis to treat nausea and increase appetite during pregnancy remains customary among women in southeast Jamaica. Though Dreher acknowledges that such use is discouraged at government-sponsored pre-natal clinics, she found that many women nonetheless consider ganja to hold therapeutic benefits to themselves and their unborn children.

More recently, Dr. Wei-Ni Lin Curry published a first-person account documenting her own use of therapeutic cannabis to alleviate symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by severe nausea and vomiting, malnutrition, and weight loss during pregnancy. (While general nausea and vomiting, colloquially known as ‘morning sickness,’ is experienced by an estimate 70 to 80 percent of all expectant mothers, approximately 1 to 2 percent are struck with the persistent vomiting and wasting associated with HG.) Curry recounts:

“Within two weeks of my daughter’s conception, I became desperately nauseated and vomited throughout the day and night. … I vomited bile of every shade, and soon began retching up blood. … I felt so helpless and distraught that I went to the abortion clinic twice, but both times I left without going through the with procedure. … Finally I decide to try medical cannabis. … Just one to two little puffs at night, and if I needed in the morning, resulted in an entire day of wellness. I went from not eating, not drinking, not functioning, and continually vomiting and bleeding from two orifices to being completely cured. … Not only did the cannabis save my [life] during the duration of my hyperemesis, it saved the life of the child within my womb.”

Most recently, survey data collected by the directors of the Vancouver Island Compassion Society (The VICS) and the BC Compassion Club and published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice reported that cannabis is therapeutic in the treatment of both morning sickness and HG. Of the 84 women who responded to the anonymous questionnaire, 36 said that they had used cannabis intermittently during their pregnancy to treat symptoms of vomiting, nausea, and appetite loss. Of these, 92 percent said that cannabis was “extremely effective” or “effective” in combating their symptoms. Investigators noted that although most women chose to self-administer cannabis by smoking, many (31 percent) also reported consuming hempen edibles, and eight percent reported using cannabis-based oils or tinctures.

PRE-NATAL POT EXPOSURE AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT

 

Though several retrospective, self-report surveys have been conducted regarding pre-natal exposure to cannabis, not all of these properly control for the use of alcohol or other substances. Among those that do, most report cannabis’ apparent impact on birth-weight and other adverse perinatal outcomes to be minimal. (Though adverse reproductive outcomes have been reported in rodents given synthetic THC, these results are typically only reported after the administration of extremely large doses of the drug at specific times during pregnancy. Therefore, these results likely have little relevance to humans.)

Writing in their 1997 book Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts: A Review of the Scientific Evidence (The Lindesmith Center), Drs. John P. Morgan and Lynn Zimmer assert, “Marijuana has no reliable impact on birth size, length of gestation … or the occurrence of physical abnormalities” among infants. Large-scale surveys appear to back up their conclusion.

A 2002 survey of 12,060 British women did not demonstrate significant differences in growth among newborns exposed to cannabis in utero versus those with no exposure, when controlling for co-founding factors such as the mothers’ age, pre-pregnancy weight, and the self-reported use of tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, and other illicit drugs. A 1999 survey of 12,885 Dutch mothers reported similar findings after controlling for maternal tobacco use. “The use of cannabis is not a major prognostic factor regarding the outcome of pregnancy,” the authors concluded. A 1997 Australian study of 32,483 mothers also reported, “There is inadequate evidence that cannabis, at the amount typically consumed by pregnant women, causes low birth weight.” Most recently, a large-scale case-control study published in the journal Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology determined that mothers who reported using cannabis during pregnancy suffered no increased risk of bearing children with acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer known to strike adolescents under age 15.

Arguably the study most often cited on the subject remains Dr. Dreher’s work from Jamaica, which examined the birth weights and early development of babies exposed to cannabis compared to non-exposed infants. (Mothers in the study reported that they occasionally mixed cannabis with tea as an alternative to smoking.) Her study reported no significant physical or psychological differences in newborns of heavy marijuana-using mothers at three days old, and found that exposed children performed better on a variety of physiological and autonomic tests than non-exposed children at 30 days. (This latter trend was suggested to have been a result of the socio-economic status of the mothers rather than a result of pre-natal pot exposure.)

By contrast, longitudinal data assessing the potential impact of pre-natal cannabis exposure on neurobehavioral and cognitive functioning is ambivalent. Two cohorts have examined this issue, both of which assessed the impact of heavy marijuana exposure on offspring outcome. Both studies remain ongoing.

The first cohort, known as the Maternal Health Practices and Child Development Study, examines the offspring of so-called “high-risk” mothers of low socio-economic status who reported using pot, alcohol, and other intoxicants. Investigators report an association between daily cannabis use in the first and third trimesters and adverse neurobehavioral and cognitive outcomes, such as lower verbal and reading scores and increased depression. However, due to the study’s methodological limitations, researchers cannot conclude whether these outcomes are due to cannabis exposure or other pre-natal or post-natal environmental factors.

The second cohort, known as the Ottawa Prenatal Prospective Study (OPPS) examines the outcomes of prenatal exposure to cannabis and tobacco smoking in a sample of low-risk, white, upper-class families in Ontario, Canada. So far, results of the study have been mixed – showing an association between maternal pot use and higher incidences of adolescent impulsivity, overall poor behavior, and decreased “executive function” (an integration of cognitive processes) at certain ages, but not at others. (By contrast, investigators have not noted any negative association between pre-natal pot exposure and IQ scores.) Recently, a comprehensive review of both studies published in the journal Neuroscience and Behavioral in 2005 concluded that if an association between pre-natal cannabis exposure and certain neurobehavioral and cognitive deficits exists, it is a “subtle” one and appears to be primarily associated with children exposed to heavy amounts of cannabis as well as alcohol and/or tobacco.

More recently, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine published findings in 2008 from a prospective study assessing the effects of prenatal marijuana exposure in 648 children in a low-income population at a six-year follow up. Researchers reported: “There was a significant nonlinear relationship between marijuana exposure and child intelligence. Heavy marijuana use (one or more cigarettes per day) during the first trimester was associated with lower verbal reasoning. … Heavy use during the second trimester predicted deficits in the composite, short-term memory, and quantitative scores. Third-trimester heavy use was negatively associated with the quantitatives core. … These findings are of concern, but they do not by themselves demonstrate causality.” Most recently in 2009 investigators at the University of Bristol in Great Britain assessed whether maternal use of tobacco, alcohol, or cannabis during pregnancy increased the risk of psychotic symptoms in their offspring. Researchers examined the drug use habits of the mothers of over 6,300 adolescents – approximately 12 percent of which exhibited some symptoms of psychosis.

Authors concluded: ʺFrequency of maternal tobacco use during pregnancy was associated with increased risk of suspect or definite psychotic symptoms (in offspring.) Maternal alcohol use shows a non-linear association with psychotic symptoms, with this effect almost exclusively in the offspring of women drinking >21 units (approximately a half-pint of beer or a glass of wine) weekly. Maternal cannabis was not associated with psychotic symptoms.ʺ

THE OCCASIONAL TOKE: SAFE FOR MOMS OR NOT?

Unfortunately, there is not a definitive answer to this question available at this time. Nevertheless, with a reported three percent of US women of reproductive age reporting that they occasionally use marijuana, it may be arguable that potential pre-natal and post-natal dangers posed by maternal pot use – particularly moderate use – are rather minimal, especially when compared to the in utero exposure of alcohol and tobacco. Ultimately however, any decision by the parent regarding the maternal use of cannabis should be made in consultation with a physician. In addition, any decision to potentially use cannabis carries with it serious potential legal ramifications, including temporary loss of child custody.

Finally, it should be noted that scientists today are just now beginning to understand the role of endocannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system in reproduction, including their role in pre-natal and post-natal development. Whether the future understanding of this system will shed additional light on the health implications of maternal pot smoking remains to be seen. Regardless, let’s hope that it is science — not rhetoric — that ultimately is the final arbiter in this decades-long debate.

Why Hotels Are Getting Rid Of 420

Why Hotels Are Getting Rid Of 420

You check in at the front desk at your hotel and you’re given room 420. To any stoner it feels like you have hit the lottery! You and your friends giggle to each other, knowing it’s going to be one hell of a weekend because the hotel gave you the stoniest room in the building. First thing any stoner does when getting to your room is drop your bags and fire up that sweet kush.

This is all going to change because hotels have been getting the room 420 signs stolen across the country. Stoners just can’t resist having that 420 sign as their own souvenir from their awesome ganja getaway.

Some hotels have been changing room 420 to room 419+1 to detour people from stealing the signs.

Just like floor 13 in most hotels, their even getting rid of room 420 altogether. As security guards walk the halls on the fourth floor they can’t help but smell the stinky kush billowing out of room 420 as we hot-box the shit out of it. Some hotels in Denver Colorado have even gone as far as to stencil out the numbers four twenty to avoid replacing it all together.

Other hotels even remove room 420. As you can see in the picture below, this hotel has a clever way of hiding the fact that the room doesn’t even exist.

We all know this will not stop any of us from smoking when entering our room’s, but this will definitely take a lot of the joy out of getting that one room you couldn’t wait to tell your friends about.
