PURPLE URKLE

PURPLE URKLE

Smoke This... Grandaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a stem from the Indica cannabis line and was introduced to the world in 2003 by Ken Estes. It is normally known as GDP and it has been created by a crossover between Purple Urkel and Big Bud. This would explain some of the characteristics that have been handed over to the child of the two big parents: it has inherited the grape and berry aroma from Purple Urkel and its oversized bud structure from Big Bud. It produces lovely flowers of purple where it grows in the state of California. The crystal white resin itself takes on a snowy white texture and color.

The effects that have been linked to Granddaddy Purple have been classified as ‘psychoactive’ and extremely potent. They can be detected from within the mind as well as from the physical characteristics of the body. The mind starts to fly and escape due to the heavy mental euphoria that it has experienced, but the body stays in one place in a state of total relaxation. People often use it for medical reasons because of these calming benefits. It has the ability to treat pain, stress, insomnia, and appetite loss. It has also been known to send the body’s muscles into a tranquil realm which is when it is used to treat things like muscle spasms.

The younger folks got in toward the end of last night and are all up at seven, being driven around the dusty grounds of the property in the early morning sun. They are as yet wearing their city garments—tight pants and sexy shoes—and as they rearrange over the earth and dry rock they talk energetically to each other, protecting their eyes from the splendid sun gradually finishes the mountain, effectively coming up to rebuff us.

This season, new younger kids are continually going to the property. It’s July in southern British Columbia, and the first round of the year’s pot collect—every one of the one thousand pounds of it—is hanging in the sheds or recently dried in temporary worker packs and cardboard boxes, prepared for us to begin trimming into attractive little pieces. From now until Christmas, we’ll cut 16 hours per day, consistently. We’ll set the entire time, break sparingly for sustenance, and just get up to the go to the washroom when we completely should. We’ll smoke always and progressively. Indeed, even with 30 of us, we’ll be pushing to complete everything before the finish of the year.

The kids are new; they don’t have the foggiest idea about any of this yet. In any case, I’ve worked in enough of these scenes to realise that to the extent trimming weed goes, this place is at least somewhat great.

I call our place the Farm, however, it isn’t our own: It’s Jim’s*. Jim’s homestead is two hours from the closest city, an hour and a half from a service station or a market, toward the finish of a long logging street high in the waterfront mountain scope of Northern Alberta. It’s difficult to get to; there isn’t much nearby movement put something aside for the intermittent work fix running sacks of soil up to the rock street to one of the many different develops in our little neighbourhood. No autos would try to journey in this far, which is an alleviation because Jim produces his weed illicitly. There’s no telephone and no web. Most evenings the main sounds you can hear are wind, coyotes, and the background noise generators.

Down on the street, or way out on the road, many different newcomers are flooding in, searching for a place simply like our own: explorers; drifters; retirees; packs of oil dim, hippy kids; flower child couples holding cardboard signs with just a pair of scissors drawn on them. “Trimmigrants,” local people protest.

Notwithstanding the way that the greater part of producers in BC is working illicitly, a huge number of regular specialists originate from everywhere throughout the world to work in the weed capital of Canada amid harvest season, gambling correctional facility time and criminal offence accusations to construct a little retirement fund with untaxed, unregulated wage. Indeed, even to me, the hazard appears to be justified, despite all the trouble. I feel fortunate to be here, regardless of the possibility that I am violating the law.

 

TASTE EVERY TERP

TASTE EVERY TERP

What Do They Mean When They Say “Taste Every Terp!”?

It’s been widely proven that cannabis shares many of the healing substances that other medicinal plants have. Things like sulforaphane, which is found in broccoli, is in cannabis, and resveratrol, found in dark berries, is found in marijuana as well. But what makes marijuana so useful of medicine is its ability to treat such a wide variety of conditions. This is in large part to the presence of terpenes. Terpenes are molecules that interact not only within the plant itself but with our bodies as well via the endocannabinoid system.

What is a Terpene?

The aromatics of plants are created by their terpenes. Terpenes give plants their unique smells, and they are the basis of aromatherapy. For instance, citrus has that fresh, lively scent which is from the terpene limonene. Plants also use terpenes to protect themselves in the natural environment. Terpenes are vital in protecting plants from grazing animals, fungus, and insects. As for humans, we need terpenes to maintain good health. Consumers use discreet dab pens and vapes to heat the terpenes at low temperatures to keep their health benefits.  Terpenes like pinene are found in pine nuts, caryophyllene is in oregano and peppers, and limonene in lemon zest. It is believed that Americans today are terpene deficient because of the poor standard Amercian Diet.

What makes cannabis unique is the fact that carries over 200 different terpenes, whereas most plants might have one or two, as is the case with lavender and rosemary. This allows an incredible amount of combinations to be formed from cannabis terpenes.

What makes this important to you?

For one, terpenes change the way THC impacts the body and actually increase its potency. If you eat mangoes an hour before using cannabis, chances are you will experience a stronger than conventional THC effect. Secondly, if you are interested in targeting a condition you have with the use of terpenes, you will need to know what terpenes are in the cannabis you have.

Scientists have coined the phrase The Entourage Effect to describe how terpenes and cannabinoids work together to help manage and treat specific diseases. In modern times, people enjoy vaping and dab pens to experience the terpenes found in cannabis. However, It is critical to vape at low temperature to maintain the quality of the terpene.There are at least 400 chemicals in the cannabis plant, and while terpenes aren’t the only factors that determine the effect marijuana will have, they play a huge part. When vaped at low temperature, terpenes maintain their healing qualities and are not broken down like they are when combusted.

Application of the terpenes can be hard to do, and it is a good idea to use an eyedropper. Just a single drop will add a lot of depth to the flavour of your smoke, and you may not be able to taste your flower at all.

So there you have it. You now have a clear idea of why the saying “Taste Every Terp” is so familiar!

 

5 Benefits of CBD Oil

5 Benefits of CBD Oil

Five Real Health Benefits of CBD

The health benefits of CBD Cannabidiol has been shown by science to be true. A component of the cannabis plant, Cannabidiol does not induce any of the psychoactive effects that recreational users often enjoy. CBD, which can be found in hemp plants, and contains hemp oil, or CBD oil,  instead produces medical and health-related benefits, typically in combination with other compounds found in cannabis. Health benefits include help with digestion, nausea, swelling, anxiety, plus a host of other ailments.

  1. CBD Aids in Digestion

A healthy appetite is essential to maintaining a healthy body, mainly when the body is healing. Some illnesses decrease the desire to the point of preventing the body from healing itself. In the human body, CBDs bind to cannabinoid receptors in the body. Scientists believe these receptors play an essential role in regulating feeding behaviour. CBD molecules stimulate the appetite by docking themselves with these micro receptors. Hemp CBD is a primary source of the oil that is used to these substantial gains.

  1. Analgesic

The CBD molecules will bind to CB1 receptors in the brain to relieve pain. CBD molecules also aid in reducing swelling and have anti-inflammatory features.

  1. Anxiety Relief

CBD oil, or hemp oil, has been scientifically tested to help with severe social anxiety. GSAD can impair living dramatically. THC, the other major component in cannabis often produces anxiety, whereas CBD counteracts the THC in what is called The Entourage Effect.

In a 2011 study of patients suffering from Social Anxiety Disorder, CBD patients showed reduced anxiety and cognitive impairment in their speech. When comparing the two, those in the placebo group presented higher distress, cognitive impairment and pain.

  1. Lowers Incidence of Diabetes

Researchers observed CBD receptors in bodily tissues. The results suggest that the CBD could be altered to fit different receptors. Therefore many various illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease could be treated efficiently. A study was conducted on rats that had blood supply failures, and when treated with CBD these failures were 30 percent less than without.

  1. Helps to Fight Cancer

Cannabis has been tested by scientists, and the finding was that it helps reduce the progression of certain cancers in mice. Researchers in lung cancers have also stated that there has been observations for a significant diminishment in focal adhesion complex. This complex plays an essential role in the migration of cancer. Medical marijuana significantly inhibited in vivo tumour growth and lung metastasis. CBD, found in CBD Oil plays a significant role in this. Other cannabinoids also contribute to cannabis’ anti-neoplastic effect and antioxidants have been shown to decrease the incidence of cancer. Another notable thing is that CBD molecules can help manage for people undergoing chemotherapy is nausea and vomiting.

The fact is hemp is a significant part of the whole CBD Hemp and the CBD Oil story. Hemp and hemp oil contain CBD in high amounts. However, hemp only contains small amounts of THC, the psychoactive drug. This makes hemp one of the most overlooked crops of the century. This is mostly due to criminalisation and prohibition which is slowly being lifted around the world, as the population becomes more educated on the medical benefits of CBD.

 

 

 

Terpenes, CBD, and “The Entourage Effect”

Terpenes, CBD, and “The Entourage Effect”

Most all cannabidiol studies done on animals use a single synthetic molecule CBD molecule which is produced by biochemical labs. These studies are lacking in accuracy because of the absence of other compounds found in plants containing CBD. A better way of performing these studies is with the whole plant extraction which will include CBD, THC, and over 400 other compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds interact together and form what we now refer to as “The Entourage Effect”. When heated using low temp vape pens, this phenomenon amplifies the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant, making the medicinal value much higher than if these compounds were used by themselves.

One of the things that are important to note during studies of the cannabis plant is this entourage effect, where 100 ml of a synthetic CBD is not the same as 100ml of a CBD-enhanced whole cannabis plant extract. The scientific community calls cannabis polypharmaceutical in that a synergy happens between the plant’s multiple components.

How Do Terpenes Add to the Medicinal Value of Cannabis?

In the case of terpenes, which are aromatic molecules that evaporate at low temperatures and produce aromas that we are all common with. Many scientists and researchers have noted the importance of these terpenes, as they are the basis for the holistic healing modality of aromatherapy. It is these terpenes that give cannabis its distinct flavours and aromas as well they play a part in the plants overall psychoactive effect. When discreetly vaporised at low temperatures, marijuana users can benefit from the entire “entourage effect”.

There are more than 200 terpenes in the cannabis plant, but only a few are in quantity enough to be considered aromatic. Some of these are diterpenes and sesquiterpenes, which are comprised of 5-carbon molecule isoprene which is the basis for all terpenoid compounds. These pungent terpenes give cannabis an evolutionary advantage by repelling insects and animals that might otherwise eat the plant.

And so it turns out, that these terpenes and the “entourage effect” are very beneficial to humans as well. A  study in the British Journal of Pharmacology discussed the therapeutic attributes of terpenoids, which are typically lacking in synthetic compounds used in testing.

How Are Terpenes Beneficial?

One example is beta-caryophyllene, which is a component found in many essential oils from black pepper and oregano, as well as many leafy vegetables and of course, cannabis. It is a gastroprotective compound that is fantastic at treating ulcers and also helps manage other inflammatory conditions and auto-immune disorders. Beta-caryophyllene is one of the reasons leafy green vegetables are such a healthy part of the human diet.

Terpenoids and cannabinoids also increase a persons blood flow. They enhance cortical activity and can be useful to at killing respiratory pathogens.

Cannabis’s particular bouquet of terps (terpenes) also plays another important role in the world of the cannabis plant. In combination with CBD, they can increase the benefits of marijuana while lowering the levels of anxiety users sometimes experience.

What Are the Benefits of Low Temp Vaping?

Terpene profiles are different in every strain. Patients should take care to use a vape pen, at times called a dab pen, to heat the terpenes only at low temperatures to obtain the full medicinal benefits. If a patient finds that one particular terpene profile is not agreeable, then they can talk to their local budtender who can recommend a different, more suitable profile. In some cases, it is simple trial and error, but with more and more studies showing the benefits of the “the entourage effect” taking place, we should soon have access to terpene profiles that are dialled in for the patient’s particular condition. Patient must take care to use only low temp vape pens to achieve maximum benefits.
