Could Marijuana Enhance Your Stamina?

There is no other state in the union where hiking 14,000-foot mountains is an unexceptional hobby, or where most of the population understands the phrase “baggin’ ’teeners.” On top of being a state filled with trim bodies, we are also a state full of trim marijuana. But how does recreational marijuana, a substance typically associated with lazy, pot-bellied stoners eating potato chips on bean bag couches, fit into our self-image of a state filled with sexy hiker bodies with abs as solid as the rocks we climb?

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice signed a bill that makes his state the 29th to allow medical use of marijuana. West Virginia is the sixth state to legalize medical marijuana in the last year and the third (along with Ohio and Pennsylvania) to do so through the legislature. In the other three states: Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota, voters approved ballot initiatives authorizing medical marijuana last November.

West Virginia’s new law recognizes marijuana as a treatment for patients with terminal illnesses or any of 14 specified conditions, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, and intractable pain. Patients whose doctors recommend marijuana will be able to obtain it in the form of pills, oils, gels, creams, ointments, tinctures, liquids, and vaporizable extracts from state-regulated dispensaries. The dispensaries will not sell buds for smoking or marijuana edibles, although patients can prepare their own at home. The law does not allow home cultivation, and patients can legally possess no more than a month’s supply at a time.

Matt Simon of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) stated, “This legislation is going to benefit countless West Virginia patients and families for years to come. Medical marijuana can be effective in treating a variety of debilitating conditions and symptoms. It is a proven pain reliever, and it is far less toxic and less addictive than a lot of prescription drugs. Providing patients with a safer alternative to opioids could turn out to be a godsend for this state.”

One downside to West Virginia’s law is a new standard for driving under the influence of marijuana that erroneously equates impairment with a blood THC level of three nanograms per milliliter. That’s even lower than the unfair and unscientific five-nanogram cutoff that Colorado and Washington adopted when they legalized marijuana for recreational use. As MPP notes, West Virginia’s DUID standard “could make it illegal for some patients to ever drive, since many patients have THC levels at this amount or greater many hours or days after last administering cannabis.”

West Virginia’s rules put it on the less liberal end of a medical marijuana spectrum that ranges from highly permissive (e.g., California) to highly restrictive (e.g., New York). Eight of the 29 medical marijuana states also allow recreational use. Medical use was approved by ballot initiative in 14 of those states, beginning with California in 1996. In the rest, as in West Virginia, medical marijuana laws originated in the state legislature.

Researchers at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a federal health council, found that people over the age of 60 are consuming more alcoholic beverages than they were two decades ago. These findings, which were published in the latest issue of the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, shows that the older generation appears to be more hell bent than ever on drinking themselves into an untimely grave.

An examination of 145,000 responses from the National Health Interview Survey from 1997 to 2014 found a steady increase in the number of people who are now hitting the bottle. Traditionally, men have been more likely to be die-hard boozehounds than their females counterparts, but the most recent analysis shows women are not far from catching up.

Lead study author Rosalind Breslow stated, “The prevalence of drinking has been higher in older men than in older women. It still is, but the gender gap has been narrowing over approximately the past two decades.”

The study found that roughly 54% of men and 38% of women over the age of 60 claimed to be “current drinkers” back in the late nineties. By the time 2014 rolled around, both group’s booze-soaked endeavors experienced a significant increase. Now, nearly 60% of men and 48% of women drink at least 12 alcoholic beverages a year, the report shows.

Sadly, the binge drinking mentality among the older demographic is spiraling out of control. Both groups are now engaging in this risky behavior more than ever before, the report found. Although the majority of the discussion today surrounds how marijuana might help tame the opioid epidemic, there is some evidence that shows medicinal cannabis can also be used as a substitute for booze.

A study of California medical marijuana patients published in a 2009 edition of the Harm Reduction Journal found that around half of these people were using pot to stop drinking in excess. The study was later replicated twice, each time coming up with similar results. It is also worth mentioning that marijuana has been proven to be much safer choice than alcohol.

The windows will soon open on the Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru, the nation’s first legal drive-thru marijuana dispensary. Located in a converted car wash space in Parachute, Colorado, the dispensary will sell weed from 4 p.m. to midnight on the weekends, giving buyers late-night access. Naturally, the shop is planning to open on April 20, better known as 4/20.

CEO Mark Smith stated, “I didn’t set out thinking this would be national news. I didn’t have some big epiphany. I just saw a need for our customers.” Smith is the latest in a line of cannabis entrepreneurs, including celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Snoop Dogg, taking advantage of increasing mainstream interest in weed consumption.

The drive-thru counter is subject to the same strict regulations as all other recreational marijuana dealers. No one under the age of 21 is allowed on the premises; in this case, that includes the back seats of cars. And the substance is not allowed to be visible from outside the dispensary. Security measures must also be in place. However, for the town of Parachute, population 1,100, marijuana sales are an important component of the local economy, accounting for nearly 30% of the 2016 sales tax revenue. Cannabis sales have also been contentious, with a ban in place prior to 2015. With the weed market booming across the state, however, Parachute appears to be joining the bandwagon.

Parachute Town Manager Stuart McArthur said in February, “We think the drive-through is a very creative and innovative idea.” The state’s Marijuana Enforcement Division added that it was not aware of this business model “ever coming up before,” giving the shop its claim to fame. Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru’s big opening day is set to coincide with the unofficial national holiday celebrating cannabis culture.

There is no other state in the union where hiking 14,000-foot mountains is an unexceptional hobby, or where most of the population understands the phrase “baggin’ ’teeners.” On top of being a state filled with trim bodies, we are also a state full of trim marijuana. But how does recreational marijuana, a substance typically associated with lazy, pot-bellied stoners eating potato chips on bean bag couches, fit into our self-image of a state filled with sexy hiker bodies with abs as solid as the rocks we climb?

Local marijuana expert and former pharmacist Dean Frankmore was very excited to try to answer that question, continually describing the substance’s interaction with the body as a relationship. He said, “Cannabis isn’t just gonna hand you everything, there’s gonna be some give and take there. If you use it for depression, I recommend you do therapy as well. One toke or one session, you can’t judge just from that whether or not it’s gonna be helpful for you.”

If you are going to start using marijuana as an athletic performance enhancer, then you have to ask yourself what exactly you’re trying to get from it. What does he get from it? Frankmore said, “For me it feels like my mind turns on a little bit more. I feel more receptive and absorb what’s around me more.”

Contrary to popular stereotypes, Frankmore believes consuming marijuana can be a motivator. Getting high can get us off the couch and to the gym when we’re feeling lazy, he says, but we have to be open to it. Asked which strains he finds motivating, he recommends sativas, as they are generally more of an upper, more of a head high. Though Frankmore himself prefers indica/sativa hybrids, when it really comes down to it, he pays less attention to strains and more to intent. He said, “If I want to go hike a mountain, any strain will really help.”

Anecdotally, Frankmore’s take rings true. He is hardly the only marijuana activist extolling the benefits of the long-stigmatized plant. However, where’s the concrete evidence? There hasn’t been much scientific research to clarify the effect of cannabis on athletic performance. In fact, there is not much research on human consumption of cannabis at all; it’s still being a federally illegal substance.

That’s where Jennifer Mullen, interim director of the Cannabis Research Institute of Colorado (CRIC) steps in to talk about what direction the science of cannabis is heading. Located at Colorado State University at Pueblo, CRIC was founded in June 2016. It is funded primarily by the state of Colorado and Pueblo County, with 10 multidisciplinary studies on various aspects of cannabis now underway. “We think the [Institute] is uniquely positioned to do pressing research into cannabis applications,” Mullen said.

Being the oktober-fest of marijuana smoking, 420 has been a worldwide holiday for stoners and business men alike. Although there are far more myths surrounding the date than there are facts, why out of all the other 364 days of the year did this magical day fall on the 20th of april?

Thanks to the people at los Angeles Times and Huffington post, we were able to find out the true story behind 420, for the sake of clarity lets look at the false reasons behind 420.

420 is not the number of compounds in marijuana.
420 is not police code for marijuana violations
420 is Adolf hitlers birthday, but just trust that it is not where the word tradition comes from

the real beginning of this wonderful tradition started with a group of teens from Marin County, California called the Waldos. The group consisted of Mark Gravitch, Dave Reddix and Steve Capper, who initially concealed their identity to protect their adult lives. To do so they used Ramones-style code names such as Waldo Mark, Waldo Dave and Waldo Steve, they even created a 420 flag that dates back to the 1970s, which dates way back than a lot of the reasoning behind the number 420(except for hitlers birthday).

The real reason why the Waldo’s chose this number was because 4:20 was the time they would meet up every single day to search for a legendary lost marijuana crop near the point Reyes coast guard station.

According to the Waldos, they were just typical marijuana-lovin’ high school students that heard about some guy in the coast guard who was forced to abandon a plot of marijuana plants in a field in Point Reyes.

They agreed to meet at a statue at 4:20 every single day, where they would smoke and wander the wilds of point Reyes looking for this mystical field.

Despite this wondrous approach, they never uncovered the hidden field, but they did manage to create a code that allowed them to hide their marijuana use from parents and teachers alike.

It is very likely that 420 would have ended as a legacy between those 3 friends, but luckily Waldo Dave’s older brother was a great friend of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh.

After learning the phrase from the group of teens, Phil and the rest of the grateful dead co-adapted the term and ended up spending the next 35 years touring and promoting the number 420 and smoking pot.

420 and pop culture

After it had finally been adopted by the stoner community, the famous number began to find its way to all kinds of funny places.

For example, every single clock in the film pulp fiction was set to 4:20, a new marijuana legislation bill in California was called state bill 420. The Denver interstate mile marker 420 was stolen so frequently that they had to replace it with mile marker 419.99.

Although it ended up taking almost half a century, 420 has made it into the big-leagues, way further than those kids in Marin county could have every imagined.

2017 has really been the year for marijuana in the united states, 28 different states have led the initiative in the legalization of its medicinal use. The real beauty starts to exert itself when you look at all the goods that are a product of its harvest, because when broken down weed can be used as hemp for physical products or for its medicinal cannabinoid but either way they are becoming more and more present in households today.

Without adieu here are the top 10 marijuana trends in no particular order

1. Personal Home grow solutions

As marijuana continually becomes more accepted in households, people are starting to grow their own marijuana. This opens a new market for companies that create solutions for home growing. States are also becoming more lenient as to the amount of plants you can have. for example, in Maine each household is allowed to have 12 plants and in Alaska it is double that. Since growing marijuana indoors is extremely heavy on the utility bills a lot of companies have been trying to create different methods for us to harvest marijuana without racking up a hefty electricity bill.

2. Delivery

The next big thing that is growing a lot in recent news are marijuana delivery services, just as companies like uber-eats and grub hub make food delivery a one-click mission. Companies like California cannabis delivery startup Eaze have gathered more than 25 million dollars in multiple rounds of financing in order to become the largest provider of on-demand cannabis. As they do remain ahead numerous delivery services are trying to copy Eaze’s business model to service what will be the worlds largest recreational cannabis economy.

3. Weed TV shows

Aside from marijuana having the most famous cameos in television today. This makes a lot of room for marijuana based television shows. Unlike weeds, these shows are taking place in a different America meaning that they have a vast consumer base which will facilitate its growth. Who doesn’t like a good stoner tv show.

4. Synthetic CBD

Another market that is growing rapidly is the harvesting of synthetic CBD, although this technically doesn’t have marijuana in it, it is a product of the controversy against CBD products. Every single day companies like Corbus pharma(OTC:CBRP) struggle with the FDA in attempting to green light synthetic CBD based medicine. Their drug Resunab, currently in phase 3 testing, is said to be released in 2019 as one of the best CBD alternative medicines today.

5. Craft marijuana

Like alcohol, people are beginning to see the differences in different marijuana depending on its source. This opens up a new lane for artisanal medicinal marijuana as people are beginning to smoke lavishly packaged strains and medicinal products. Companies like défoncé chocolates make luxury chocolate bars that just so happen to be medicated with quality cannabis. Every day more cannabis companies are beginning to embrace the farm-to-table approach for marijuana, this will continually open a path for craft-weed.

6. Safer/easier consumption

the biggest controversy today with marijuana is the methods of which it is consumed. Because smoking is so shunned upon in todays world. Many companies have been making the move to safer consumption both for recreational and medicinal relief. Portable vaporizers like the PAX 3 and the Puffco plus allow consumers to discretely inhale marijuana while on the go. As edibles also provide longer/more therapeutic doses a lot of companies are moving to uniquely packaged and marketed edibles for mass-consumption.

7. Micro dosing

Micro dosing is a great way to receive a lot of medicinal marijuana benefits without the high that is usually associated with THC. Companies like Kiva Confections have been creating micro-dose friendly products that are uniquely packaged for the masses. Recent studies have actually indicated that micro dosing might actually have more of a positive effect than macro dosing, that being said this market is poised for growth during 2017.

8. Sports

Today many athletes like Ronda Rousey and Ricky Williams have become advocates for stopping marijuana testing in sports leagues to allow athletes to use marijuana as medication. Many professional athletes turn to the use of medicinal marijuana to treat pain and head injuries as they continue to reject opiate-based prescribed medicine

9. Product design

Although most of the products in this industry were made based on utility , the tables are beginning to turn as style becomes more present in a variety of products. The world of glassware is also receiving a makeover as visionaries like marijuana activist jane west recently raised a million dollars in capital for a new glassware collection, it’ll be very interesting to see the stylistic choices of vendors as marijuana gets more trendy by the day.

10. Los Angeles as the new marijuana capital

Its time for Denver to move over, there’s a new capital for marijuana according to Medmen capital CEO Adam Biermen. As the marijuana market in Los Angeles amounts to roughly 1 billion dollars, easily overshadowing the mile high city. The city is actually expected to pass a law that clears the path for a proper marijuana licensing program which will open up the flow into the recreational market.

Future Farm Sold Out of Its Scorpion Grow Lights and Receives ETL Certification

With its ETL certification, Future Farm’s Scorpion line of LED indoor grow lights is approved for retail sale across all of North America, which opens up its biggest market for rapid growth. Future Farm’s ETL approved LED COB Grow Lights cover a broad spectrum of wattages (including 120W, 245W, 315W, 375W, 495W, 560W) for growing clones or flowering plants. The Company is well positioned to satisfy any cultivator’s needs, from the small grower to the large industrial scale grower.

With twenty-six U.S. states and the District of Columbia broadly legalizing marijuana use, the increased demand on energy consumption in pro-cannabis territories is expected to skyrocket, continuing the trend towards LED “grow light” solutions that reduce energy costs while increasing yields. Analysts forecast the global LED lighting market for horticulture application to grow at a CAGR of 22.55% during the period 2016-2020.

“The cultivation of cannabis is an energy-intensive industry,” said William Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. “A recent study revealed that legalized indoor marijuana-growing operations account for 1% of total electricity use in the United States, at a cost of $6 billion1annually. As the cannabis industry continues its rapid global expansion, cultivation facilities are increasingly turning to LEDs to reduce energy costs and boost profits, and we intend to be a part of this growing market.”

“Our Scorpion Grow Lights have been in high-demand, and having ETL certification means Future Farm can carry the needed inventory to meet the demand,” says Rob Huston of Future Farm’s LED Canada Division. “A lot of time and research has gone into this product and I am very happy that we have passed Intertek’s high certification standards. We have had amazing feedback from many experienced cultivators considering the switch to LED, and are impressed by the results of our Scorpion COB fixtures. Now that the certification is complete, we can move forward with our distribution plans.”

About Chip On Board (COB):
LEDs compete with traditional lighting sources in a number of ways, including greater energy efficiency, longer lifetime, and smaller size. However, the one drawback that has vexed many lighting designers is cost, which is a key reason why LED manufacturers continue to innovate to improve economies of scale. One of the newest packaging solutions designed to help lower costs is Chip on Board (“COB”) light source modules, in which the LED chips are in the form of a semiconductor chip that is neither encased nor connected but directly mounted onto a PCB or, more generally, a substrate. This packaging style also provides several related benefits, such as greater design flexibility, better light distribution, and simpler manufacturing processes.
