On Tuesday, Arkansas gave approval to Issue 6, which makes medical cannabis legal. Now, patients are waiting for the process to begin. Despite Arkansas’s approval, along with several other states, the stigma surrounding medical cannabis is very much still alive. From being called a loser to a pothead, the insults never seem to end. However, what many are failing to realize is that it’s not just about getting high. On the contrary, it’s about healing the individuals that so desperately need it. Check out the video below by KHBS to hear from patients themselves as to why medical cannabis has nothing to do with getting high. 

Arizona patients await medical cannabis

As a result of Arkansas approving Issue 6 to legalize medical cannabis, patients in the state are now waiting for the medication they so desperately need. Indeed, it’s an exciting time for the individuals that fight for their lives every single day. However, they still want everyone to know one thing: it has nothing to do with getting high.

During the video by KHBS, two patients share their stories and how medical cannabis can make their lives better. Moreover, they discuss the alternatives that are currently failing to heal them.

Corey Hunt, educator, advocate, and co-founder of Illegally Healed stresses the importance of doctors and medical professionals stepping up to learn about the medicine. Moreover, he says this is a huge deal for residents in Arkansas,

It is now our constitutional right as Arkansans to have safe and legal access to medical cannabis. Gone are the days where patients are considered criminals. It’s time to move out of the shadows and into the light. – Corey Hunt

Ultimately, the patients awaiting their medical cannabis want everyone to understand it’s about improving the quality of their lives, not getting high. Don’t forget to listen to their stories and how medical cannabis will help in the video below.

War vets with PTSD 2 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

Veterans Day is one of those holidays that doesn’t get as much attention as other holidays. It’s not a commercial holiday, and there are no cute cards. No one thinks of the gifts we are given this day. But Veterans Day is all about gifts. The gift of Freedom, the gift of Protection, the gift of Life. Our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, & Marines have given us a gift with their service. They step up and do the hard jobs, fight the fights, and defend our nation and its people with a sacrifice that can include their very lives. 

Veterans Day: Honor the brave

As a nation, we need to honor these men and women by taking care of those that have come back from the battlefield, and honor those that never got to see home again.

Right now, one of the most effective treatments for pain, depression, PTSD, and many other conditions is being kept from our Veterans, while more and more people across the nation vote for access.

This Veterans Day, HERB wants to honor those that have fought our fights and found healing through cannabis, so we can raise awareness that all Veterans need cannabis as medicine.

A Sailor’s Story

2 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

Joseph Elrod grew up in the small West Texas town of Odessa. An oilfield town, it was a hard place to grow up, and like many of his peers, he chose the military as a way to see the world and try to build a life. Joe joined the Navy, as so many other had before him.

He attended boot camp in the Great Lakes, served in Groton, Connecticut, Norfolk, Virginia and saw the world.

During my tenure in the Navy, I was a high pressure pipe & plate welder, as well as firefighter, overseeing and helping weld on nuclear piping as well as hulls of submarines. It was a lot of work, but I helped keep our guys afloat, and our ships running.

Joe received two Navy Marine core achievement medals, and numerous citations for exemplary professionalism & service.

I was on the USS Theodore Rosevelt, and shipped to the Middle East, Turkey, Spain Greece, Italy, Dubai, Bahrain, Japan, Malaysia, and Okinawa. I gave 12 years of my life to this country, from 2001 to 2012.

In February of 2012, my service ended, due to downsizing, and I tried to go back to being a civilian and build my life with my family.

A life changing event

3 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

Only a few months later, in April of 2012, Joe’s life came to an abrupt halt. After an argument with his wife, he went to sleep on the couch. He didn’t wake up until June. While he slept, two bullets ripped through his skull, one from underneath his jaw, and another from the top of his head going down.

The bullets shattered half my jaw, broke every bone in my face, one bullet went through the center line of my brain, the other went out my left eye. A metal dental partial reflected the second bullet, saving my life. The rounds were hollow points, I know, because the police told me the shots had come from my own gun.

When he awoke, his entire world had changed. His family hovered over him in tears, sure that he was going to die.

The person who actually fired the shots has never been identified or arrested, but when he came out of his coma, the police only compounded the tragedy.

The damage was so extensive, initially, it appeared to be one shot, and he was accused of attempting suicide.

The deepest injury

6 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

While Joe was in a coma, his wife left him, sold his vehicle, tried to cash in his life insurance policy, and moved into a boyfriend’s place, taking Joe’s son with her.

She told their son that Joe was dead. The police were trying to blame him for attempting suicide. But eventually, the doctors managed to piece together what actually happened, as they also tried to put Joe back together.

As of today, I have had 14 surgeries, transplanting bone into my face with four bone grafts, five skin grafts, and numerous complications as well as refining to get me where I am today, but it is a long way from where I was before all this.

Struggling with VA care and addiction

They had me heavily medicated on morphine and Oxy when I got out fo the hospital, and they kept me on it for over two years at a very high dose. I got hooked on it.

I was prescribed 30mg of oxy three times a day, and 90mg of morphine three times a day. During my heaviest abuses, I wouldnt’ mix them, but I was using 200mg or more of oxy, and morphine over 500mg, crushed up and eaten.

My body became so tolerant, that when I had follow on surgery, none of the pain meds worked. They had to give me seven shots of Dilaudid just to take the edge off the worst of the pain. I became virtually immune to the effects of opiates.

Healing through cannabis

5 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

I had a friend I met from working in Pennsylvania that gave me some marijuana to try and help me. It curbed my pain, helped me cope with the cravings to take pills and opiates.

Now, I use cannabis for multiple symptoms, and it helps with my PTSD, as well as depression, and also helps distract me from the chronic pain, as well as make the pain more tolerable.

When I was using opiates, I had a lot of family problems. My head wasn’t clear, and the withdrawals and pain strained my relationships.

Now that I am using cannabis, I have a better connection with my family, a better relationship with my son, and I can function throughout the day without that foggy drug haze that opiates cause.

Thanks to cannabis, I am on a fraction of the medications I once was, and my quality of life is far better.

Giving meaning to a second chance

1 Real Life Heroes: #herbheals On Veterans Day

Joe has seen the ins and outs of veteran care through the VA from every angle through his ordeal of recovery. Now, he takes that wealth of experience and tries to help others.

My activism was basically spurred on by living for months on end in the VA hospitals, hearing the stories of other veteran’s. So many have given up on the system. They feel that the VA has lost touch and forgotten about it’s primary focus of helping, and gotten bogged down in the bureacracy of it all. Many vets feel forgotten about.

I now help run a Facebook page to share my experiences with the VA, and help others navigate that complicated process, because knowledge is power, and the VA doesn’t tell you certain things, you have to find them out on your own.

Growing up, Joe never partook of the herb, but now, it is vital to his everyday life. You can share your experiences with other veterans, and help each other make the most of what the VA offers, by checking out OEF/OIF Veteran’s Collective on Facebook.

 

Are you a Veteran who uses cannabis to help with PTSD or as an alternative to other medications? Tell us your story on Facebook and use the hashtag #herbheals. We want to hear your stories of how cannabis has helped heal you.

Snoop Said He’s Moving To Toronto After Trump’s Win

Snoop Dogg Says Hero Snoop Said Hes Moving To Toronto After Trumps Win

Before the election, many American’s were threatening to leave the country if their candidate didn’t win the presidency. After a surprise Donald Trump victory on Tuesday, many of those celebrities haven’t commented on their plans to leave the United States yet. If anyone was going to follow through on their plans to leave, it’d be Snoop Dogg. Almost immediately after the election, Snoop took to Instagram to gain some insight into the Toronto real estate market from his Canadian buddy, Drake. Could Snoop truly be leaving?

Drake and Snoop in the 6ix

Shortly after the election, Snoop posted a whole wack of photos to his Instagram account. But it wasn’t all negative, with California’s Prop 64 being passed, it could give him a reason to stay in California.

Snoop posted a photo of the Toronto skyline after the election and he tagged Drake in it. With the caption “My new home”, it leads one to believe that Snoop is 100% serious about leaving. Only time will tell if he stays true to his word.

If Snoop is really trying to find property in Toronto, who would be better to point him in the right direction than the Canadian icon Drake? Whether Snoop was just venting, or his plans to move to Canada are serious, it just goes to show how much this election has divided Americans. Check out all his post-election Instagram posts below!

Good Chemistry Nurseries enters Nevada market

PRESS RELEASE

“a logical next step for us based on public support”

Reno, NV (November 10, 2016) – On the heels of Nevada’s decision to legalize recreational Cannabis use, Good Chemistry Nurseries is bringing its award-winning nursery system and world-class product to Nevada with the launch of a new Reno production facility that will service dispensaries throughout the state. The announcement was made today by company founder & CEO Matthew Huron.

“Launching Good Chemistry Nurseries in Nevada was a logical next step for us based on public support and proximity to our operations in Colorado,” Huron said. “Our company is known for product excellence and Nevada Cannabis users and dispensary owners have strongly encouraged us to bring our high quality flower to the state.”

Good Chemistry Nurseries’ award-winning Cannabis will be located in dispensaries throughout the state of Nevada. Some of the company’s highly acclaimed strains include the legendary exclusive strains Ingrid and Mr. Good Chem, as well as their renowned Sour Diesel, Gorilla Glue #4, Amnesia Haze, XJ-13, OG’er, Durban Poison, Novacaine, Alien Dawg, LSD, Master Kush and Orange Bubblegum.

Huron became involved in the medical marijuana industry when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. In 1996, when medical marijuana became available in California, Huron saw firsthand the symptomatic relief patients experienced from this alternative medical treatment. In 2000, he began growing medical marijuana for AIDS patients throughout the state, founding and operating a nonprofit medical marijuana co-op that became one of the most respected and well-known facilities in San Francisco.

After 10 years operating the Elmar Lins Compassion Co-Op, Huron moved to Colorado to co-found Wellspring Collective, which caters to seniors with health challenges and provides alternative health services. In 2010, he launched Good Chemistry Colorado, planning the facility infrastructure design and construction, acquiring the necessary financing and directing the resulting work. It is considered to be one of the finest vertically integrated cannabis companies in the state.

Today, Good Chemistry employs a staff of more than 100, operating dispensaries in Denver and Aurora, as well as its new Nevada cultivation. Huron has developed and implemented best practices in the medical and retail marijuana industry, including a Compassion Care Program that enables patients with limited resources to obtain medical marijuana at little or no cost. His enforcement of policies and procedures throughout the company has ensured strict compliance with state and local regulations. Huron has collaborated with local leaders and law enforcement to enhance neighborhood safety and security.

Since 2010, Good Chemistry Nurseries expanded cultivation operations in two large Colorado facilities that are devoted solely to the production of more than 60 strains of marijuana. In addition, they optimized the production of extracts and concentrates through solvent-less processing. Huron is a founding board member of the Cannabis Business Alliance (CBA) and a founder and former board member of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). He has served on the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division’s (MED) Licensing Authority Advisory Committee, which was charged with advising regulators on the development of production management, tax and other policies pertaining to the use of marijuana.

Good Chemistry Nurseries Chief Production Officer Duncan Cameron says,  “Good Chemistry Nurseries is the perfect fit for Nevada, as the state prepares to kick off adult-use operations in the coming year. Our cultivation facility brings together sophisticated cultivation techniques, the latest technology, and a dedicated nursery team to ensure Silver State consumers will find the most consistent highest quality cannabis when they look to Good Chemistry Nurseries.”

Marijuana Business Daily estimates Nevada’s 2016 marijuana sales to be between $25 million and $35 million, up from $4-6 million in 2015. Nevada’s medical marijuana market is poised for tremendous growth. The patient base will likely continue to expand, while the ability for out-of-state patients to purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries could provide a huge boost to sales.

For more information about Good Chemistry Nurseries Nevada operations, visit http://goodchem.org/nevada/. To schedule an interview with a Good Chemistry Nurseries representative, please contact Shawna McGregor at 917-971-7852 or shawna@rosengrouppr.com.

Good Chemistry’s dispensary locations in Denver and Aurora offer customers an award-winning lineup of medical and recreational marijuana products and outstanding service from our highly educated and passionate staff.

10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veteran’s Day

Top 10 Strains Hero 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

Men and women of service are brave, noble, and have risked all that they have in honor of something much larger than themselves. These actions deserve the most sincere gratitude. Yet, all too often, veterans return to an environment that cannot support their needs. Those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) know first-hand the challenges that come with trying medication after medication with no relief. Thankfully, there’s medical cannabis. In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are 10 top strains for PTSD.

1. Blue Dream

Top Ten Strains 1 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

By now, many cannabis enthusiasts have grown tired of hearing about Blue Dream. However, when it comes to ease of access and reliable relief, Blue Dream is one of the best strains around. A balanced and easy hybrid, Blue Dream is a cross between tasty Blueberry and Haze.

The result is a mellow and relaxing strain that provides a sense of bodily calmness and mental ease. Slightly sativa-dominant, Blue Dream promotes a strong mood uplift and cultivates a sociable mood. Many medical patients use it for relief from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

2. OG Kush

Top 10 Strains 2 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

For those who need something a little heavier, OG Kush is another easy-to-find and effective strain. The exact genetics of this strain are a little obscure, but OG Kush is thought to have a stronger indica heritage than Blue Dream. This means that physical sedation and a heavy-bodied experience will be more predominant.

Many find this type of sedation useful during an anxiety attack. OG Kush is also popular among those with insomnia, which is perfect is PTSD symptoms are getting in the way of some quality shut-eye.

3. Bubba Kush

Heavier still is Bubba Kush. The genetics are also mysterious in this strain, but it is thought to be a cross containing OG Kush and Afghani. Afghani is a pure indica landrace strain, the sedative effects are ramped up in this indica flower. This means that sleep is almost guaranteed.

Bubba Kush is famous for producing a euphoric and giggly vibe. Perfect for whenever you’re in a funk, the upbeat nature of this strain lifts spirits and helps lift the burden of a stressful day.

4. Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express may have become famous thanks to the film with the same title, but this strain is milder than is often expected. The THC content can reach up to 20%, but the overall effects are easy and mild.

A sativa-dominant hybrid, it inspires a lovely upbeat attitude and is perfect for daytime consumption. If you do well with THC during the day, this strain can provide effective relief without overpowering the consumer.

5. Headband

Headband has earned its name for a reason. This popular hybrid reportedly makes you feel like you’re wearing a headband. It produces a pleasant yet distinct pressure around the crown of the head. While it may sound odd, the potent effects of this strain are well-balanced between cerebral euphoria and bodily relaxation.

The winning combination provides a true head-to-toe experience, relieving both psychological and physical stresses. A cross between OG Kush and Sour Diesel, Headband is a great way to wind down when you’re feeling a little too keyed up.

6. Northern Lights

Top 10 strains 6 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

Northern Lights is one of the most popular indicas around. Sleepy and mellow, this strain is very popular among those with conditions like PTSD, bipolar disorder, severe anxiety, and depression.

It’s a go-to sleep aid for many medical cannabis patients out there. Heavy-hitting and fast-acting, this is a strain you grab when you find yourself in a real rut and need to de-stress pronto.

7. Master Kush

Master Kush is an insomnia crusher. Though, this strain is certainly no flower for cannabis beginners. The effects can be heavily sedative and can induce a serious case of couch-lock. A cross between Hindu Kush and an unknown Skunk variety, Master Kush can be a little more euphoric than your standard indica.

Yet, landrace lineage makes the physical effects of this strain dominate. If you suffer from muscle tightness or have lingering pain from an old injury, Master Kush provides the perfect dose of herbal medicine to both the body and mind.

8. Cannatonic

Top 10 Strains 8 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

It’s not uncommon for PTSD patients to opt for high-CBD strains during the day and high-THC strains in the evening. Why? CBD has potent anxiolytic and mood-stabilizing effects. Yet, THC is a far more powerful sleep aid. For those looking for a daytime strain that won’t cause a “high”, Cannatonic is a perfect strain.

Cannatonic is fairly popular and fairly easy to find in states with legal medical cannabis. The CBD levels in this strain can reach up to 20%, but you are far more likely to run into a 1 to 1 phenotype of this strain. This means that dried Cannatonic bud that contains a THC to CBD ratio that is about even.

9. Golden Goat

Top 10 Strains 9 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

Golden Goat is a popular Colorado strain, but it’s gaining attention in other parts of North America as well. A potent hybrid, Golden Goat is best saved for consumers who know how to handle THC. The psychoactive content in this strain often reaches 23%.

There is some evidence that this higher THC levels may be more beneficial in PTSD than in other conditions. So, the potency alone may be one of the reasons why so many post-trauma patients love this strain. Yet, the balanced mind/body effects from this strain provide consumers with a well-rounded, enjoyable experience overall.

10. Super Silver Haze

Top 10 Strains 10 10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veterans Day

While this list is dominated by hybrids and indicas, there are plenty of reasons to appreciate sativa strains as well. Super Silver Haze is one of the most popular and easily accessible sativas around. A cross between Northern Lights, Haze, and Skunk No. 1, Super Silver Haze provides an energizing and spirited daytime high.

Yet, thanks to the smidge of indica heritage, the typical sativa raciness is calmed down in this strain. Instead, patients are left with a focused, happy, and creative experience. In high doses, however, this strain may inspire some paranoia. If you are sensitive to cannabis-induced anxiety, start slowly with Super Silver Haze.

Does Cannabis Help Ease The Pain Of Fibromyalgia?

Does Cannabis Help Hero Does Cannabis Help Ease The Pain Of Fibromyalgia?

The pain from fibromyalgia can be debilitating. For those who suffer from the illness, it can seem like nothing will help alleviate the symptoms. However, cannabis has been shown to reduce inflammation, target specific areas of pain and, due to the reduction in symptoms, allow for more mobility than previously possible. With much of the country able to gain legal access to medical cannabis, soon, many sufferers will be given a new option for medical treatment.

Fibromyalgia, a severe “sickness”

Many with fibromyalgia will not call themselves sick because their symptoms do not induce vomiting or fevers.

Instead, they’re plagued with constant muscle pain, chronic fatigue, tension migraines and a whole host of other debilitating symptoms they must learn to live with.

Until the introduction of medical cannabis, many have found little to no relief from these harsh symptoms.

Looking for an alternative treatment?

But, what about those suffering in states where cannabis remains strictly prohibited? What are they do to?

Why The NFL Needs To Allow Players Access To Medical Cannabis

Survey Two Thirds Hero Why The NFL Needs To Allow Players Access To Medical Cannabis

The discussion about NFL players using cannabis as an alternative to addictive painkillers is surging in popularity. Beginning with When the Bright Lights Fade last March, NFL players both former and current, are standing up for their rights. Not their right to vote, not their right to remain silent, but their right to know and choose what substances they put in their bodies.

ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports and…cannabis?

Survey Two Thirds 1 Why The NFL Needs To Allow Players Access To Medical Cannabis

In a recent ESPN video, former NFL player Eugene Monroe (who famously donated $80,000 to When the Bright Lights Fade) discussed his growing frustration with the NFL and its policies on cannabis use.

Monroe is not alone in his mission to reform the NFL’s cannabis policy. In fact, he is joined by athletes, politicians, news companies, and non-profits who also want to advance the research on cannabinoids like CBD and THC.

I’d love to see an atmosphere where we push away from the opiate drugs, and use marijuana as a healthier more natural way to heal from pain. – Eugene Monroe

NFL players deserve pain relief from cannabis

Survey Two Thirds 2 Why The NFL Needs To Allow Players Access To Medical Cannabis

Monroe touches on the long-term side effects of using opiate based painkillers. The immediate relief provided from these addictive painkillers comes with hidden pitfalls.

The stories are sad about how players went down a dark path. Players talking about taking dozens of Vicodin on a daily basis. Currently, the NFL bans the use of cannabis for any reason, saying they are waiting on the science. Even though it (cannabis) is safer than what the team doctors are prescribing. – Eugene Monroe

A recent survey of NFL players showed that two-thirds believe cannabis use equals fewer painkillers. Just like a majority of states have now enacted pro-cannabis legislation, the majority of players desire the same in the NFL.

Professional athletes are often reduced to the status of entertainers. We depend on them for fun and competition on game day but often forget they are human too. Life after sports can be difficult for many professional athletes.

With our support, our favorite players may be able to shed the pitfalls of taking opiate based painkillers.

Allow them to consume cannabis. Let them win. Permit them to be healthy. Isn’t that what we all want for ourselves anyhow?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a nonpsychoactive component of the cannabis plant. While psychoactive cannabis is federally illegal, new laws allow consumers to CBD extractions that contain less than 0.3% THC.

THC is the component that produces the cannabis “high”. Cannabis without THC is classified as hemp and is legal in all 50 states.

Based on these laws, companies like BE LABS the makers of CBDLuxe can offer pharmaceutical-grade, organic, non-GMO CBD products online and in stores to consumers all over the country.

CBDLuxe is third-party tested to ensure the quality, purity, and safety of all their products. All of their products were designed with the highest standards in mind, from their Sublingual/topical sprays to their disposable vapor pens, which are comprised of proprietary blends of CBD and terpene-rich essential oils.

The therapeutic applications and beneficial effects of CBD are broad and deep. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has shown through extensive pre-clinical research that CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, relieving a myriad of symptoms caused by inflammation.

The NIH has also shown that CBD has tremendous anti-anxiety potential as well. In anecdotal cases, consumers often report feeling relaxed and relieved of stress and anxiety after consumption.

Other studies show CBD promotes the growth of new brain cells. More research still articulates that CBD potentially aids in the treatment and prevention of age-related illness such as Alzheimer’s, neurodegenerative disorders, and certain types of cancers.

For Will A. Spillo, co-founder of BE LABS, it was pain relief that led him to CBD.

Being an international heli-ski guide and big moutain snowboarder has exacted its toll on my body.

Throughout his career, Spillo sustained many ailments, aches, and pains. Then he discovered the immediate and all-encompassing pain-relief that CBD provides. He articulates that this relief and success inspired BE LABS,

[…] the key reason we developed our line of products was, at first, purely selfish. But, after experiencing first hand how CBD also brought relief to my friends, we decided to bring our proprietary solution directly to a much wider audience of consumers.
