Marijuana-Stocks-Cannais On The Brain

Marijuana is most commonly known as a combination of the dried buds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. There are many ways of using the plant such as eating, vaporizing, smoking, brewed, and tons more, however the most common method remains smoking the plant in some sort of pipe-like device.

The chemical that provides for that intoxicating fuzzy-feeling is called tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. This chemical reacts with various neurotransmitters within our brain to produce the high we feel when we use marijuana. The average THC content of marijuana has soared from less than one percent in the early seventies, all the way to nearly thirteen percent in the past five to ten years. Some marijuana has been reported to reach THC levels of nearly thirty percent.

A recent poll found that one in eight people smoked marijuana regularly while forty three percent of U.S. adults have admitted to trying it. These numbers have steadily increased throughout the past fifty years and remain on the rise with the legalization of the plant.

Marijuana reacts with several of the same pleasure-chemical centers in the brain that can be targeted by other drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and alcohol. Marijuana can produce a feeling of euphoria, or what most refer to as the “high” which is strengthened or weakened depending on the quantity, quality and method of consumption. When smoking as opposed to other methods, the high is stimulated in the brain almost instantly. This is because our brain is naturally wired to receive and break down THC. After smoking, many report a feeling of overwhelming calmness and strengthened sensory perception. This is followed by an altered perception of appetite leading the user to get what is referred to commonly as the “muchies”.

Although marijuana use through smoking can cause similar respiratory problems experienced by tobacco smokers, the incidence of more serious diseases such as cancer and asthma remains low.

A recent study found that there may be a link between genetics and marijuana use. This suggests that some may have a predisposition for the drug which may or may not lead to addiction.

Marijuana has many amazing benefits and little to argue against it. With the country and world legalizing the plant and becoming more and more comfortable with recognizing its health benefits, the world of cannabis will only continue to grow.

Marijuana and sex are gifts of nature. There’s nothing synthetic about it. We enjoy both of them because our human biology is made for it, literally. We are physically equipped, in more ways than one, to enjoy marijuana and sex. But when you combine the two, holy crap is it life-changing. Our brains contain neurocellular circuitry (stuff) which can only be activated by substances with THC’s molecular structure. This makes the marijuana high a unique combination of feelings, and there are only two sources for the substances which activate THC’s very own neuroreceptor (thing). Our brain is one source: it generates something very similar to THC, called anandamide (another thing). Translated, the word means bliss. The only other source for this bliss-producing substance is the cannabis plant itself.

So you see, we were made to enjoy marijuana! Being stoned or sexually turned on both produce similar physiological responses, such as increased heart rate, heightened sensitivity, and changes in blood flow and respiration. Certain sections of our brain like the temporal lobe are affected by both marijuana and sexual arousal. Do you see where I’m going with this? Our bodies are hard wired to enjoy marijuana and sex together!

Sex and pot both provide us with euphoric experiences. And it is the enjoyment of the two with others that really ignite the fire. Whether you are having sex with someone or sharing a joint, or having sex with someone while sharing a joint, there is a certain feeling of comfort, intimacy, trust, and belonging. You are both on the same page and at that very moment in time nothing else matters. All your stress and problems disappear for that period of time leaving you in a state of utopia, which for some men may unfortunately only be a couple short minutes. But nonetheless, utopia it is!

Cannabis has been used in conjunction with sex for thousands of years, literally. Texts from Ancient India more than 3,000 years old show an inseparable relationship between marijuana usage and better sex. Indian medicine systems used cannabis to increase libido, conquer impotence, and cure various diseases. These systems also utilized opium, sometimes in combination with cannabis.

Dozens of formulations containing cannabis were prescribed as aphrodisiacs. Their names are delicious and extremely sexy, just reading them might turn you on so be careful: shrimadananda modaka, uttama vajikarana, majun falaskari, roghan bhang, among others. These formulations were said to produce long-lasting erections, delay ejaculation, facilitate lubrication and loosen inhibitions. Sounds like the recipe for a party to me.

Ancient sexual cannabis use rose up in a Hindu-Buddhist tradition known as Tantra. Those practicing Tantra believe that our bodies contain energy systems consisting of nerves, heart, and spiritual elements that are linked to cosmic and nature-based energies. Males and females have different types of energy and sex unites these energies, creating “circuits” which allow us to find new heights of intimacy. Tantric union of male and female energies (sex) is thought to balance out the energy of the cosmos. These Tantra cannabis rituals date back to at least 700 AD.

Don’t get me wrong, I love sex just as much as the next person, but balancing out the entire energy of the universe? That’s got to be some pretty serious sex. I must be doing something wrong then because when I have sex I’m lucky if I can balance my own body weight never mind the energy of the entire universe. But I digress…

In Tantra they actually rarely smoked the weed. They mixed weed with milk, ate it, and called it “bhang.” Such a perfect name. This bhang could also be made like a marijuana milkshake with cannabis flowers and leaves, milk, sugar, pepper, almonds, poppy seeds, ginger and other herbs. Doesn’t sound too bad. But back to the weird stuff. Listen up to what I’m about to say because this might help spice up your love life. You can thank me for this later. With Tantra cannabis rituals, the males would bathe their female partners, comb their hair, spray them with perfume, and lay them out on a silk bed. Then, the men would touch the women’s forehead, eyes, nostrils, mouth, arms and thighs, and eventually vagina. Couples went on to have sex and the men would give oral sex to the women while using cannabis the entire time. Now that’s a case of the munchies I’m sure no one will be complaining about.

Tantra would focus on prolonging sex for as long as possible. Yes ladies, that means for longer than 3 minutes. In fact, ancient texts describe some cannabis sex sessions lasting for seven to eight hours! And I quote from the texts, “…until a glow of fire envelops the lovers in total-body orgasms, which result in erasure of mental ideations and ego, the timeless freedom from self which equals Nirvana.” Wow. What the f*ck kind of marijuana were these people growing? As much as I want to call bullshit on this one, the facts are the facts. But girls don’t get your hopes up, there’s not a single one of us men that is going to have sex with you for eight hours. Sorry, not happening. Moving on.

Fast-forward to today’s world. Several research articles show that marijuana and sex can be a powerful combination. A majority of users reported that they got hornier when they were stoned, but explained that increased lust occurred in situations where a person would normally have felt sexy. Users said that not only was desire increased, their ability to appreciate sexual pleasure was enhanced when they were high. However, it has been found that too much cannabis can have an adverse effect so be sure to save a few hits for after playtime is over.

According to love doctor Lisa “Mamakind” Kirkman, marijuana enhances sex for both biological and social reasons. She said we experience a heightened state of arousal because oxytocin—which is naturally released during breastfeeding, sexual arousal and orgasm— is also stimulated when cannabis is consumed. Kirkman noted that some of the earliest recorded cannabis use is related to childbirth because cannabis strengthens contractions. So, the muscle-contracting properties of cannabis could be utilized to enhance sexual performance.

That said, here’s a sexy cannabis guide, derived from Kirkman’s most stimulating facts and tips in a recent interview.

1. Social Lubricant:

Socially, pot can amplify sex appeal because smoking is commonly a shared activity. Sharing pot creates an enjoyable, communal experience. Kirkman said it’s also a good way to meet other pot loving singles. Share your stash with a cutie at a party. Your mutual appreciation of pot will be an easy conversation starter as you puff, puff, pass with your new friend.

2. The Neck Rub of Pot Heads:

For some, the act of smoking is sexualized into a fetish. The use of the mouth, the spark of fire, lips on a piece of beautiful, ornate glassware and lilting plumes of smoke can be a turn on, Kirkman notes. She recommends sharing a joint, shotgun style (blowing the smoke directly one mouth to the next), with your lover. It’s the “neck rub for pot heads,” as Kirkman puts it, and can lead to much more.

3. Sexiest Strains:

So, what pot strains are especially good for sex? Kirkman said strains with a 70/30 percent hybrid ration are better than 100 percent pure strains. Pure strains can cause extreme effects like paranoia—in Sativas— and sleepiness—in Indicas, especially with inexperienced and occasional pot users. With the caveat that everybody is different and may not have the same reaction to these strains, here are few recommendations to boost male and female libidos, starting with the basics.

For energy- Sativa are uplifting and awakening. As Kirkman puts it, “Sativa get you going.” Any Sativa strain, good for physical activity like dancing, is also good for “horizontal dancing.” Kirkman’s Sativa favorites are “Flo” and “Skunk #1.”

For relaxation- Indicas relax the muscles, relax the mind, relax it all. Kirkman notes that sometimes just relaxing a little bit is what someone might need to have better, more fulfilling sex. Kirkman mentions “Blueberry” as a favorite relaxing Indica.

Just like Viagra- What strains are specifically heralded for their Viagra-like effects? For seduction and mental wooing, Kirkman recommends “Voodoo” as the key to unlocking unbridled passion. To unleash the sexual beast within, Kirkman recommends “Godbud,” and “Afghani Bullrider.”

4. Sex Pot Games

And for seasoned stoners who have smoked it all, Kirkman suggests fun “Sex Pot games.”
One game involves partner pain play with alternating licking exposed skin and teasing with the cherry ember of a smoking joint. (Safety note: do not use hash laced joints for any pain play games! Hash will melt on the skin and the goal is fun, OK?) Another game, The Human Hookah, happens when a woman’s partner takes bubbler hits from a bubbler strategically inserted inside the woman. The vibrations from the bubbler will make the woman giggle with outrageous pleasure.
Anddddd thank youuuuuuu Lisa Kirkman!

The discovery of cannabis’s medical properties can be traced back thousands of years, back to when its primary consumption was through eating the seeds for its high nutritional value. The seeds from inside the feminine flowers, their pollination referring to what we know as the buds. The buds hold the richest source of psychoactive and medically valuable cannabinoids.

About 2,800 B.C., a Chinese emperor who fathered a myriad of traditional Chinese medicines, praised cannabis as one its most valuable medicinal remedies. The flowers were used to overcome yin, rheumatism, malaria, constipation, memory loss, as well as menstrual cycle problems. In the second century, famous surgeon Hua To used a mixture of hemp resin and wine to compose anesthesia, performing complicated surgeries. References have been made to “kannabis” by the ancient Greeks. In 400 B.C., its use was documented for back pain, and in 70 A.C, Greek doctor Discordes wrote a book registering 600 plants, one of them being Cannabis Sativa L. Probably, the medical properties of cannabis were discovered when processing and consuming the seeds.

In 1621, Robert Burton suggested cannabis as an effective treatment for depression. In 1814, Nicholas Culpepper published a book that registered the medical uses of cannabis. He included ancient uses for cannabis as well as recent ones such as alleviating cramps, reduce head inflammation, and alleviating joint pain. Culpepper also believed that cannabis could be added as an ointment for the treatment of burns. With the augment of marijuana consumption among the youth during the 60’s, scientific research emerged. Its appearance became prevalent for chemotherapy and AIDS. After California and Arizona had legalized medical marijuana, President Clinton made an investment of $1 million to review the investigation done by the Institute of Medicine.

As a result, in 1999, a report was published where authors informed about the possible therapeutic value of the cannabinoids. Although all the possible benefits were not mentioned in this report, it had led to the final acknowledgment of cannabis as a medical resource.

Medical cannabis is currently subject to laws relating the growing, possession, transport, and use of marijuana, which change depending on the state. There is also a myriad of differences between marijuana for general versus recreational use and the same product for medical use. From the scientific point of view, the effect of marijuana in treating neurological problems, including multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and movement problems, is not clear.

Studies of the effects of cannabis for treating multiple sclerosis have produced varying results. Evidence also suggests that oral cannabis extract is effective for reducing patient-centered measures of spasticity. A trial of cannabis is deemed to be a reasonable option if other treatments have not been effective. Its use for MS is approved in 10 countries.

The U.S. National Multiple Sclerosis Society believes that the question of whether marijuana – produced from the flowering top of the hemp plant, called Cannabis Sativa – should be used for symptom management in MS, is a complex one. It says that there is general agreement that better therapies are needed for distressing symptoms of MS. This includes pain, tremor and spasticity, which may not be sufficiently relieved by available treatments.

Still, there are uncertainties about the benefits of marijuana relative to its side effects.The society supports the rights of people with MS to work with their MS healthcare providers to access marijuana for medical purposes in accordance with legal regulations where such use has been approved. The Society supports advancing research to better understand the benefits and potential risks of marijuana and its derivatives as a treatment for MS. Across the Atlantic, in the UK, the situation is different.

The MS Society says that people have claimed cannabis helps with some MS symptoms such as muscle spasms and stiffness as well as pain. Official surveys show that significant numbers of people with MS in the United Kingdom use cannabis to manage their symptoms. Because medically tested cannabis-based treatments aren’t widely available, some people with MS obtain cannabis from other sources.

A big issue in the upcoming election is legalization; who is going to do the most for the drug. Well, the country’s biggest organization supporting cannabis legalization has announced that they are formally endorsing the Libertarian Party’s nominee for President: Gary Johnson. The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), which sets out to change federal laws so that states can choose whether or not they would like to legalize, says that Johnson was the best choice if someone wished to legalize marijuana. They also added that their endorsement comes just from cannabis use and not from any of his other positions.

“We don’t take a position — and we, therefore, don’t take into account a candidate’s position — on other issues, such as abortion, guns, gay rights, Iraq, taxes, or Social Security,” MPP’s Executive Director Rob Kampia said. “Of the three presidential candidates who will appear on the ballot in all 50 states and D.C., Gary Johnson clearly has the best position on marijuana policy. When he first advocated for legalization in 1999, he was the highest-ranking public official in the U.S. to do so — as the sitting Republican governor of New Mexico, no less.”

“Legalization has been Johnson’s number-one issue for 17 years. MPP’s endorsement of Johnson was an easy call; the most difficult question is whether MPP should support a candidate who’s good on medical marijuana but bad on legalization, when the candidate is facing an opponent who’s bad on everything,” Kampia added. When speaking to The Hill earlier this month, Johnson said that he used cannabis as “recently as a month ago” but stated that he would not if he were elected as president of the United States in 2016. The presidential nominee has not drunk alcohol for three decades, and he used to be the executive of cannabis company Cannabis Sativa Inc.

There is a lot more to cannabis than people think. As legalization spreads, there are much more people smoking marijuana. These people assume that there is just marijuana to smoke, but that is not the case. Cannabis strains fall into three categories: Sativa, Indica, and hybrids. Let’s look at the three and their differences. These three strands are broken into three colors: purple, maroon, and green.

The purple stand for the Indica, the maroon stands for the Sativa, and the green represents the hybrid. The first main difference comes in the effects. For instance, Indica is usually known for being more relaxing and having an effect on the full-body. On the other hand, Sativa usually lifts you up and provokes creativity. Because of this difference, most people tend to look out for Sativa during the day and indica during the nighttime.

There are also difference medicinal benefits. Indica typically helps people that have insomnia or are suffering from some type of pain. On the other hand, Sativa is used for people suffering from depression, fatigue, or even ADD. Why are these differences there? Well, these differences exist because of the origins of the plants.

Indica plants are usually shorter and bushier and are found in rougher climates such as mountains. In addition, they also have higher resin production. Indicas are great for indoor cultivation for these reasons as well as shorter flowering time. Sativa is taller, take longer to grow, and survive in warmer climates. That’s why they are best found outdoors.

But what about hybrids? Hybrids can have various effects since it is a mixture of both Indica and sSativa. Some cultivators are even able to mix the two together and have the exact impact that a consumer may want or need. For instance, a hybrid can make you both relaxed and creative. Now, if you are ever looking to buy legal marijuana, you can know the differences and what you are going to experience.

With oddly random strain nomenclature such as “Trainwreck, Pineapple Express, AK-47, Chemdawg, and Black Mamba,” all of which are likely to be found on many shelves across the nation, medical and recreational smokers are both hopeful that a new cannabis genome project will bring about a larger understanding of the genetics put away in today’s cannabis strains.

From California to Colorado … Washington to Oregon, the descriptive labels on medical cannabis’s plastic bottles are usually seriously misrepresenting the strain they contain. As the thought of medical cannabis becomes more widely accepted and would-be politicians search for votes within the reform movement, the confusing parameters of today’s naming conventions are leaving many consumers not knowing what they are getting. This results in “Indica-dominant hybrids being labeled as Sativa-dominant strains and vice versa.”

As most in our world are as of now mindful of, there are three particular species inside of the cannabis family – Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis. Be that as it may, on account of the modern hybridization process of crossbreeding distinctive strains for their particular impacts or phenotypes, the strain’s definitive name is all the more frequently taking into account its potential for showcasing than its particular hereditary qualities. In any case, that is about to change on account of Mowgli Holmes, a microbiologist at Columbia University who will endeavor to outline whole cannabis genome.

“Once his DNA map is complete, it will give growers a better way to understand their horticulture and consumers a better way to understand their product,” Newsweek’s Winston Ross states.

With a specific end goal to finish this huge assignment, Holmes’ entangled and tedious examination will include investigating tests of cannabis accumulated from around the world and all through history. With more than 1,500 of the 2,000 gathered cannabis tests already in the system that plots out cannabis DNA, consumers and cultivators alike will soon have a vastly improved comprehension of what they’re inhaling and developing.

The first “Hi” branded dispensary opened on October, 2015 in Portland, Oregon.

“The “Hi” brand aims to help consumers find reliable, trustworthy products in the fast growing but highly fragmented cannabis industry,” according to Gary Johnson, CEO of Cannabis Sativa, Inc.

The “Hi” brand management and marketing solution will give dispensary and retail store owners the management and marketing tools for success in return for an affordable annual fixed license fee or other fixed periodic license fee in accordance with applicable state laws or, where allowed by state law, a royalty on sales.

The following components will be available to independents:

A complete graphics package suitable for signage, in store point of purchase materials, templates for collateral material, templates for promotional materials and templates for direct marketing materials in both print and utilizing social media channels;

-A set of “Standard Operating Policies” that cover management’s best practices:

The documentation and graphic design elements will be produced and the “Hi” brand turnkey management and marketing solution is expected to launch in March 2016.

CEO Gary Johnson said: “This is an opportunity for our Company to offer a management and marketing solution that enables local operators to have access to the very best practices, not typically available to small business owners, while at the same time producing a revenue stream for CBDS.”
