FACTS ABOUT MARIJUANA YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
1. Medical Marijuana was legal during Prohibition (1920-1933)
However, you could buy Whiskey during prohibition – if and only if – it contained Medical Marijuana! Then when Alcohol was legalized, Marijuana became illegal. Like we said, you just can’t make this stuff up.
The times are changing again as 40% of the US population can get Legal Access to Medical Marijuana
Marijuana is America’s favorite quasi-illegal drug. Non-psychoactive Marijuana (CBD and other Cannabinoids) are legal in 80% of the country. Only 9 states have full on prohibition. Medical Marijuana is legal in about 50% of the states in the union. Recreational Marijuana use is now legal in Oregon, Colorado, Washington, Alaska, California, Nevada, Main, Massachusetts. We expect that 75% of the country will have access to MMJ in the next 5 years. You still need a medical cannabis card from medical marijuana doctors in California until 2018.
2. Origins of Hemp use Dates Back to the Ice Age
Hemp fibers were used in Taiwan dating back 10,000 years. At that time, Mastodons were still roaming about the icy plains of North America. Who would know that this Herb would be demonized as a dangerous substance by “modern man”, in all his fucking technological glory. Yeah, right, Cavemen can use hemp, but it’s too dangerous for us evolved folk with our huge brain.
Just as Al Gore invented the internet, a Chinese Emperor Shen Nung first discovered Marijuana’s medicinal uses. That story line goes up in smoke as Medical and Ritual Marijuana use artifact evidence from digs across Asia show that most every great culture used Cannabis and hemp.
Chinese script that translates into Hemp has been found on bones and turtle shells dating back 3000-3500 years.
In Western China, a European type person’s (Caucasian) remains were found beside a large Cache of Psychoactive Marijuana. LCMS testing revealed an excellent Cannabinoid profile too. Some so called intellectuals think it was difficult for early man to figure out if a herb was psychoactive. But these kinds of thoughts are not founded in the historic record nor common sense. The minute you make a campfire from psychoactive herb, there will be no question whether it gets you high or not. The invention of fire by the way, dates back more than 500,000 years. .
3. Hemp and the Racket of War – Napoleon, Russia and the War of 1912
Hemp was the original and most sought after military material for hundreds of years. Hemp was used for sales, ropes, rigging and fiber for clothing. George Washington was well trained in the Traditions of British Hemp technologies. Upon independence, Washington decreed that in the interests of the country, every farmer had to grow Hemp. Imagine what the look on Washington’s face would be if he knew that future Presidents would declare, with a straight face, that Marijuana and Hemp illegal, in the “best interests” of America.
The English Navy, which conquered much of the world relied on Russian Hemp to keep the Empire afloat, literally. A primary objective in Napoleon’s invasion of Russia was to cut English Naval Hemp and timber supplies and weaken their fleet that were a thorn in the French side for a couple of centuries. Sadly for Napoleon and more sadly for the nearly 1 million soldiers that died, the greatest Marijuana raid in history failed miserably. Dito, the War of 1812 was designed to cut off North American timber supplies.
Of course War is full of scoundrels, a lot of New Englanders made a fortune supplying Napoleon’s wars. The arms racket goes way back.
4. Marijuana is a Super-Duper Food
If you believe the nutritional reports from Food testing laboratories, Hemp seeds are among the healthiest food choices out there!. Hemp Seeds are an excellent source of protein, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, minerals, and fiber. They contain about 40-45% of oil and fatty acids,30-35% % protein and only 12% carbohydrates The amino acid composition of the protein includes every essential amino acid required by man. Almost no other plant can make this claim (if they could talk).
Vegans should note because a Hemp seed protein contains all the amino acids found in meat – that most vegetarians are deficient in. Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids that man requires to exist. Hemp oil has a superior fatty acid profile. It contains the somewhat rare fatty acid gamma linolenic acid, which is used normalize women’s periods and to balance emotional swings.
- 45-60% Linoleic acid – Omega-6*
- 20-25% Alpha Linolenic acid – Omega-3*
- 7-9% Oleic acid – Omega-9*
- 2-3% Gamma Linolenic acid
- 1-2% Stearidonic acid
- 8-10% Saturated Oils
There is zero chance of getting busted on a drug test because hemp oils are very low in THC, the psychoactive ingredient of Cannabis. With hemp products you can make milks, smoothies, salad oil.
5. Hemp as a Building Material and Fuel for Cars!
Hemp is an incredible building material, not quite accurately advertised as 10x stronger than Steel. Example: At the turn of the last century (1900) making bio-fuel from Hemp was no secret as well. This is why both alcohol and Marijuana were prohibited – to kill competition with Big Oil. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Believe it or not, none other than Henry Ford wanted to make his own fuel Bio-fuel supply for his customers.
“Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONSTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel.” – Popular Mechanics
In another incredible happening, researchers were able to show that 20 people using hemp rope alone could move a 10,000 stone thirty meters in an hour!. This explains how Easter Islanders were able to move 5 ton statues a mile or more. The crazy shit people do!
6. A Woman’s Medicine?
According to the latest research, smoking pot delivers substantially different physiological effects to females and males. In animal trials, rats were found to be more sensitive to Cannabis’s pain killing properties. It seems that estrogen plays a role in these sex-specific effects. At ovulation, when estrogen is highest (by far) marijuana appears to magnify its effects, which makes it a miracle medicine for PMS sufferers.
MMJ is also recommended by medical doctors to treat anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight management up and down, and keep you chillin when you would have been bitchin. None other than Queen Victoria, head of the world’s largest Empire physicians prescribed Cannabis elixirs and creams and rubs to keep her royal highness at the peak of her powers.
Is a relaxed woman a sexy woman?
Scientists think so. “Studies have shown that during arousal and orgasm, parts of the female brain [associated] with high anxiety and stress deactivate, and many women I know smoke marijuana to help with this process of mental deactivation,” – Sex therapist Ian Kerner
Women are generally more sensitive to Cannabinoids (the active ingredients of Marijuana) than men. It would be wise to know a good budtender that is an expert on Women’s issues. Choosing the right strain of cannabis is very important. Some strains are high in very THC so look out. These marijuana strains may get rid of the pain, but if you smoke too much – you also might end up higher than a kite. Some strains contain CBD (non-psychoactive, highly medicinal component of marijuana) and little THC. These are the strains that deliver superior all round medicinal effects while keeping you chill but not stoned. Probably the best strain to start for most women would be a 5% THC with 15% CBD content.
7. Pot for your Dog?
“Marijuana toxicity is no laughing matter and if people note their dogs have gotten into it they should seek veterinary care immediately, When you get to the vet, tell them the truth right away? – Dr. Robert
Dogs that are indoors and eat junk food (puppy chow) suffer from many of the disorders that humans do. Marijuana users who know if their Pets are happy, say, yes feeding a bit of Pot edibles to kitty or doggy makes a big difference their behavior. They are more lovey dovey and affectionate, more like their old selves.
“Increasingly, owners of dogs with chronic pain, nausea, or appetite problems have begun asking if medical marijuana could help their dog’s quality of life, like it has done for some people. ” – Los Angeles Veterinarian Doug Kramer
People have used medicinal marijuana to ease everything from glaucoma to the side effects of chemotherapy. So why shouldn’t man’s best friend give medicinal pot a shot? Pot owners that give weed to their pets warn, be careful, don’t get them stoned. Stoned animals simply don’t function, at all.
“I grew tired of euthanizing pets when I wasn’t doing everything I could to make their lives better, I felt like I was letting them down. I think it’s pretty bad that there are a number of veterinarians that are giving a variety of different products by a variety of different roots without any basis behind it at al” – Kramer, Vet
8. Naming in the Tradition of Horse Racing Stoned
The naming of a strain of Marijuana and a Racehorse is very similar. The name often pays homage to the parents with a twist of some sort. Sometimes the name of the strain has nothing to do with the parents, kind of like Prince’s name has nothing to do with Mom and Pop.
Likewise, Marijuana can be named after a rock band or a gun, as in AC/CD and AK47 as if to imply jokingly, the pot variety will electrify or maybe blow your brains out..
Horse breeders and Marijuana growers must both be naughty by nature. Check out the evidence in the names they conjure up.
- Ghost Zapper
- Hoof Hearted
- Bad Hair Day
- Beer Belly Bob
- Beer Gut
- Behind Belly Button
- Between The Sheets
- Bird Brain
- Blame The Dog
- Bruce The Horse
- Bubble Gum
- Green Crack
- Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze
- Hog’s Breath
- Train Wreck
- Rolling Thunder
- Strawberry Cough
- Love Lettuce
- Hilltown Tumbleweed
- Foxy’s Rhinofuck – Matanuska Thunderfuck
Can you see it now? The Horse Marijuana Owner Hybrid?
You’re at Santa Anita Park. And the various Medical Marijuana billionaires are there with their horses, named Love Lettuce, Rolling Thunder etc. And these nouveau riche name their new MMJ hybrid California Chrome (the Kentucky Derby winner).
9. The Soapy Marijuana Caper
Did you know that Cannabinoids like THC and CBD are fat soluble? If you prepare infused cannabis edibles, the answer is, of course you did. But did you know that THC is also soap soluble. Well, if you know a bit of chemistry you would quickly say yes also. However, what happened in this story freaked some mothers right out.
A number of babies were tested positive for Marijuana in their urine. You’d think that secondhand smoke would be the cause. But to get that kind of a response, the Mother’s in question would have to be smoking not grams but ounces of pot per day. It turned out that an ingredient in a Johnson & Johnson soap was giving a false THC response. A better test using HPLC confirmed that the guilty party was Johnson & Johnson and not the mom. We wonder, exactly what exactly does that THC mimicking chemical do to babies? Is it toxic or what?
10. Suicide Rates Decreased in areas where Medical Marijuana became Available
A Colorado study found that suicides went down after Medical and Recreational Cannabis were legalized.
“Our results suggest that the passage of a medical marijuana law is associated with an almost 5% reduction in total suicide rate, an 11% reduction in the suicide rate of age 20-29 males, and a 9% reduction in the suicide rate of 30-39 males.“
The segment of the population most at risk are young men. It is theorized that a sizable portion of these the 20-30 year olds switched from binge drinking to Marijuana smoking.
“Our results suggest that the passage of a medical marijuana law is associated with an almost 5 percent reduction in the total suicide rate, an 11 percent reduction in the suicide rate of 20- through 29-year-old males, and a 9 percent reduction in the suicide rate of 30- through 39-year-old males.” – German Study on the Effects of Medical Marijuana in California
11. Illegal Marijuana Operations can be Foul for Man and Beast Alike
Illegal operators are not necessarily bad nor stupid. But some definitely are bad and or stupid. Outdoor operations that spray toxic chemicals and set out poison have been implicated in the deaths of owls, fischers (mammals), birds,
Outdoor grow operations have their downsides, too — particularly illegal plots of pot plants. Endangered spotted owls in California’s Mendocino County are threatened by the rat poison put out by people who grow pot illegally on isolated stretches of public land. In 2012, two spotted owls found dead in Mendocino County tested positive for rat poison, as did the bodies of 85 percent of dead mammals called fishers.
The people who harvest illegal pot might be exposed to toxic chemicals that cause serious health problems. A few years ago, hospital workers in Albania admitted a cluster of illnesses that turned out be related to illegal marijuana farming. More than 700 patients treated at one village alone. Workers who had prolonged skin contact with the cannabis symptoms of vomiting, cramps, gastrointestinal pain and irregular heartbeats.
