hemp seeds drug testing

Can hemp seeds make you test positive for marijuana?

DENVER — Forty percent of Americans buy organic foods, and one of the most popular items is hemp seeds. Controversy over whether hemp seeds can have the same effect as marijuana has some worried.

You can find plenty of hemp products at your local health food store. Seeds can be sprinkled on your favorite meal and there’s even a hemp shake these days.

Hemp is popular because it’s a great diet supplement for people allergic to soy, containing about 11 grams of protein in a single tablespoon.

Lani Banner of The Vitamin Cottage explains, “It is a complete protein, contains all of the essential amino acids in the ratio that the human body requires.” But some worry hemp contains THC, found in marijuana which is in the same family of plants.

This year, the military banned soldiers from eating products with hemp seeds. The reasoning was that the seeds might skew a soldier’s drug test. We decided to have the seeds tested at Forensic Laboratories in Aurora.

Our subject was a mother of three who doesn’t want us to use her name, but agreed to take part in our test.

She enjoys the health benefits of hemp, but wants to make sure she’s not making a mistake and says, “For my children, I want to set an example for them that it’s important what you put in your body and drugs are not the way to go.”

After eating a salad with three times the amount of hemp seeds usually found in packaged yogurt, our subject submitted a urine sample to the lab to begin the testing process, which was repeated twice.

She also used a good amount of hemp lotion.

Dr. Laura Bechtel revealed to us that the results were negative for THC. Bechtel says the lab does job drug testing on a routine basis and does not find THC traces in people who eat hemp as a health food but do not use marijuana and adds, “People have to realize it’s going to have to take a large amount of seeds, a bag of seeds or more to test positive.”

Experts say if you want to have confidence in what you’re buying, check the label every time. Since hemp seeds that are hulled lose their THC, make sure to buy seeds that are produced in Canada, where exported hemp products fall under tough standards.

Lani Banner of The Vitamin Cottage says, “You can look at the back of the label for the symbol for the test pledge, this is where the companies pledge that they are testing all of their hemp seed products to ensure that it has undetectable levels of THC.”

The symbol looks like a small circle or tear drop shape that says “test pledge.” Learn more information about the benefits of hemp products here.

logic reasons to smoke weed

15 Reasons Why Smoking Weed Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You

As more statesВ join the movement to legalizeВ marijuana, smoking weed is becoming more mainstream than ever.

Unfortunately, marijuana still tends toВ get a pretty bad rap.

But if you ask me, there are all sorts of reasons why smoking weed is actually really good for you.

And I’m not just talking about weed’s ability to make you feel more creative or the fact that it helps you chill out, either.

Apparently,В getting high can also have a myriad ofВ health benefits.

That’s right. Sparking up can improve your health in all sorts of unexpected ways, and research showsВ that marijuana can improve your mood,В boost your energy, help you lose weight and even prevent certain diseases.

If you’re looking for yet another reason to justify your weed-smoking sessions, here are 15В advantages to getting lit AF on the reg:

1. Cannabis unlocks your creative potential.

A study found that cannabis causes psychotomimetic symptoms, which could lead users to make connections between ideas that aren’t exactly related.

This type of thinking is often crucial to creativity, so grab some ganja, and get those creative juices flowing.

2. Trees can be used to treat depression.

A study conducted by Rudolf Magnus Institute of NeuroscienceВ found that THC “reduces the negative bias in emotional processing,” which means weed could be used to help people cope with depression and other psychiatric disorders.

Plus, a study published by USC and SUNY Albany found that “those who consume marijuana occasionally or even daily have lower levels of depressive symptoms than those who have never tried marijuana.”

So if you’re feeling blue, brighten up your day by packing a bowl.

3. Weed can help you lose weight.

Although marijuana is notorious for giving you a mean case of the munchies, aВ study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that pot smokers are less prone to obesity.

Another study in the American Journal of Medicine revealed similar results, finding those who light up on the reg are actually a bit skinnier than those who don’t smoke marijuana.

In addition to giving you a smaller waistline, researchers also discovered that marijuana may boost your metabolism, increase fat loss and lower cholesterol. So next time you’re tipping the scale, try swapping out your salads for a different type of green.

4. Lighting up can lower your risk of diabetes.

A study published in The American Journal of MedicineВ found that people who smoke marijuana had lower insulin levels and insulin resistance levels by 16 and 17 percent, respectively.

This suggests that cannabis may play a role in regulating blood sugar, which can decrease your risk of developing diabetes.

5. Cannabis keeps you calm, cool and collected.

Researchers interviewed Swiss inmates who regularly smoked marijuana in prison and found that marijuana made the inmatesВ calmer and less stressed. Plus, marijuana use among prisoners also prevented violence and acted as a “social pacifier.”

I guess they don’t call it a “peace pipe” for nothing.

6. Sparking up is a great social activity.

Weed serves as a great icebreaker since it reduces social anxiety, encourages you to open up and makes you more accepting of others.

Plus, let’s be real: There’s no better way to spend a night in with your friends than hotboxing your basement, ordering pizza and watching all of your favorite TV shows.

7. Pot can make your periods suck less.

When it comes to managing premenstrual symptoms, marijuana could be a natural alternative to Midol.

StudiesВ have found that THC is an analgesic and antinociceptive agent that can alleviate the pain of those killer cramps and pounding headache.

Plus, marijuana has also been found to have anti-inflammatory propertiesВ that can help with the bloating that occurs around that time of the month.

8. Getting high doesn’t give you a hangover.

A night of drinking beers with your BFFs will leave you feeling pretty shitty the next morning. However, unlike drinking, smoking weed doesn’t result in a deathly hangover.

So you can get lit with your squad and still feel pretty amazing the next day.

9. Marijuana makes food taste a million times better.

There’s nothing better than getting stoned and stuffing your face with an endless array of snacks. But have you ever wondered why marijuana makes food taste soВ magical?

A study published in Nature NeuroscienceВ found that, thanks to THC’s effect on the brain’s cannabinoid receptors,В food appears more appetizing as a result of a heightened sense of smell.

Therefore, it’s probably a good idea to stock up on bagel bites and Dino nuggets before you spark up.

10. Smoking a bowl can boost your energy.

There’s a stigma surroundingВ marijuana use that it makes you lazy. However, not all strains of cannabis turn you into a complete couch potato.

Research has supported a link between the brain’s CB-1 and CB-2 cannabinoid receptors and dopamine. Essentially, small doses of marijuana won’t hurt your efficiency level, and an increase in dopamine levels gives you the focus you need to get your shit done.

If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, swap out your coffee and smoke a Sativa-dominant strain like Sour Diesel or Jack Herer, instead.

11. Smoking weed can help you fall asleep.

Everyone knows weed helps you unwind.

While there is considerable debate over the long-term effect marijuana has on sleep cycles, someВ feel that smoking a bowl before bedtime actsВ as aВ better sleep aid than other substances, like alcohol and certain sleeping-inducing medications.

(Unfortunately, though, it’s said that marijuana’sВ effectiveness as a sleep aid decreases with increased usage.)

12. Marijuana can also eliminate nightmares.

Marijuana is also known to disturb the sleep cycle and suppress REM sleep.

Since dreams occurring during this type of sleep, marijuana can be used to interrupt this REM sleep and eliminate your full capacity to dream, thus eliminating your nightmares.

13. Everyone respects someone who can roll a blunt that’s lit AF.

Every pothead knows rolling the perfect joint or blunt is basically a form of art.

Learning how to roll an impressiveВ blunt takes a lot of time and practice to master, so people will always respect a stoner who has decent rolling skills.

14. Smoking weed makes you worry less.

An article published in a 2010 Harvard Mental Health Letter also suggestedВ marijuana alleviated symptoms of anxiety when administered in small doses.

The article also mentionedВ that small doses of THC act as a sedative, decreasing symptoms of anxiety. So the next time you can’t stop worrying about something, break out the weed.

15. Ripping the bong can actually be good for your lungs.

A study published in theВ Journal of the American Medical Association indicated that marijuana smoke is not detrimental to your lungs.

In fact, past studiesВ found lighting up can briefly increaseВ your lung capacity in the short term. you know, from all that inhaling you’re doing.

As more states join the movement to legalize marijuana, smoking weed is becoming more mainstream than ever. Unfortunately, marijuana still tends to get a pretty bad rap. But if you ask me, there are all sorts of reasons why smoking weed is actually…

liquid marijuana cocktail

How to Make a Liquid Marijuana Cocktail

Whenever I’ve had this drink, everyone around me wants to know what’s in it.

What Is a Liquid Marijuana Cocktail?

Whenever I’ve had this drink, everyone around me wants to know what’s in it. It looks so appealing, and it always strikes their curiosity. Then, once they have a sip, they love it!

The Liquid Marijuana is a delicious fruity cocktail that, contrary to its name, does not actually contain any marijuana. It’s the green color and the optional cannabis-shaped pineapple wedge garnish that gives it its tongue-in-cheek name.

When you order this drink at a restaurant or bar, it’s always hit or miss as to whether the bartender has even heard of it—let alone know how to make it—so it’s best to be prepared with the knowledge of how it’s made.

A Word of Caution

Depending on your personal tolerance level for alcohol, you might want to err on the side of caution if you’re away from home or if you don’t have a reliable means of transportation back to someplace safe. This drink can cause different reactions in people who are more sensitive to alcohol.

I say this from experience. After about two of these, I’m feeling pretty good and probably shouldn’t be allowed to drive. This drink contains a mix of several strong liquors, so please, keep that in mind when consuming it.

Please drink responsibly.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 oz Malibu or coconut rum
  • 1/2 oz Midori or watermelon liqueur (make sure it’s green)
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Captain Morgan or spiced rum
  • 3 oz pineapple juice
  • Splash Sprite or lemon-lime soda
  • Ice
  • Pineapple wedge and/or cherry (optional, for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Pour all ingredients into a shaker, or even directly into drinking glass.
  2. Mix or shake, and serve.
  3. Optional garnishes: pineapple and/or maraschino cherry.

Variations

Some other options could be to use vodka instead of rum or orange juice instead of pineapple. Or if you have a creative mind and a variety of liqueurs, there’s nothing stopping you from creating your own masterpiece! But if you want it to be some derivative of the Liquid Marijuana, you might want to keep it at least green in color.

Comments

Tawny (author) from Kennesaw, GA on February 05, 2020:

I’m sure if you get creative you could work some in there! Maybe soak some pineapple in oil or something and use it as a garnish 🙂

Kelley Marks from Sacramento, California on February 04, 2020:

It’s a shame not to put some THC in that drink, but I’ll bet a person or two will try! The color certainly matches the name, though. Love to try it some day.

This drink is always a winner with anyone who has tried it and likes fruity drinks. Disclaimer: It does NOT contain any marijuana.

types of pipes for weed

A beginner’s guide to glass

  2. Main types of glass pipes on the market today
  3. Glass made in U.S. vs glass made in China
  4. Scientific glass vs. artisan glass
  5. Choosing the glass that’s right for you

Whether you’re a seasoned stoner or newcomer to the world of cannabis, the fact remains the same: glass is an integral part of the consumption experience. It is one of the best, most commonly used materials for smoking out of, and glass pipes range from small and simple handheld pieces to huge, wildly intricate artistic creations, and everything in between.

What makes glass such a perfect medium for smoking cannabis? What are the different types of glass you’ll find on the market today, and which ones are the best for you? Here’s everything you need to know about glass, helping you to become a cannabis glass connoisseur the next time you visit your local head shop.

Why glass?

The primary reason glass is used for smoking cannabis is that it is a very clean material. To be more specific, when you heat a piece of clean glass, the only thing that really happens is the glass gets hotter. It doesn’t begin to smoke or vaporize, it doesn’t create toxic fumes, and it doesn’t emit odors or flavors. This makes glass perfectly suited for smoking cannabis flower and concentrates.

On the other hand, pipes made out of materials such as metal, plastic, or wood usually end up contaminating the cannabis smoke in one way or another, whether it’s changing the taste of the smoke, altering the odor of the smoke, or worst of all, emitting toxic fumes into the smoke.

Aside from maintaining the purity of the cannabis smoke, there’s an added bonus to using glass: style.

Glassblowers often mix in color pigments to create interesting patterns, adding artistic flair to the smoking experience. Artists who specialize in high-end glass pipes also make large, elaborate pipes in a dizzying array of shapes, sizes, and designs.

Main types of glass pipes on the market today

Glass is used to make a wide variety of smoking devices. The most common are:

Spoons

Spoons are widely used and are recognizable for their simple design. One end is a spoon-shaped bowl into which you pack your cannabis. There is a small hole at the bottom of the bowl that allows smoke to travel from the spoon end down into the body of the pipe. Somewhere adjacent to the bowl is another small hole, called a “carb.” You control airflow inside the pipe by covering or uncovering the carb with your finger. Finally, the body of the pipe extends out away from the bowl and carb, ending in a third opening, which is the mouthpiece.

Bongs

Bongs are defined by the inclusion of a water chamber. As smoke bubbles through the chamber, the water simultaneously cools the smoke and filters out heavy particulates, producing smoother, cooler, and all-around better-tasting smoke.

Bubblers

Bubblers are essentially a mash-up of a spoon pipe and a petite-sized bong. In shape and function, they are just like a spoon pipe. They also include a small water chamber that cools and cleans the smoke. For many consumers, bubblers produce more enjoyable smoke the way a bong does, but with the smaller, more convenient size that a spoon offers.

Chillums

Glass chillums can essentially be described as a small cylinder of glass you can smoke out of. You pack one end of the cylinder with flower, ignite it, and pull the smoke through the other end of the cylinder.

Steamrollers

Steamrollers are basically extra-large chillums that often include a small depression for packing cannabis, a carb for controlling airflow, and a much larger-diameter glass cylinder. The idea is to let you fill the pipe with tons of smoke before clearing it all at one time for a powerful punch of cannabis smoke.

Dab rigs

Dab rigs typically use the same water filtration system as a bong, but they include a number of additional features and components designed specifically for vaporizing super-potent cannabis concentrates at higher temperatures than those for smoking flower. Instead of a bowl, for instance, a dab rig typically utilizes a nail or banger made from glass, quartz, or titanium. Once the heated chamber reaches the desired temperature, the concentrate is dabbed and filtered through water before being consumed.

Glass made in U.S. vs glass made in China

A common debate in the world of cannabis is whether glass pieces made in the United States are fundamentally different from or of better quality than glass pieces made in places such as China.

One camp maintains that mass-produced Chinese glass is inherently inferior to American glass. According to this perspective, because Chinese glass is mass-produced and is intended to be much more affordable, manufacturers cut corners and don’t create products with as much care or quality assurance as manufacturers in the U.S.

As seen on numerous online discussion boards and cannabis forums, common complaints about Chinese-made glass include:

  • Lower-quality glass
  • Thinner glass
  • Glass that is not carefully hardened through a process called annealing, thereby making it more susceptible to stress fractures and breaking
  • Unoriginal designs, with many claiming that Chinese glass manufacturers essentially rip off designs created by smaller glassmakers and then mass-produce them

Another camp tends to be much more open to glass pieces made in China. In general, this cohort sees the quality of Chinese glass as close enough to the quality of any other glass that it doesn’t really make a noticeable difference.

Further, this group often argues that because Chinese pieces are mass-produced for lower cost, they actually serve a valuable function within the cannabis industry, giving people access to very affordable smoking implements. For many, this affordability outweighs whatever drop in quality consumers might get with a piece made in China.

As expert glassblower Luke Wilson put it: “The only difference is [Chinese manufacturers] take everything they make from other people and make it a million times over. . There’s nothing wrong with China glass as far as I’m concerned. So if you need a high-filter piece for your money, then go buy a China piece. But if you want something that’s collectible and that you’ll appreciate, go buy a personal artist piece.”

Scientific glass vs. artisan glass

The other key distinction in the types of glass used for cannabis pipes is if it’s made from scientific glass or artisan glass.

According to The American Scientific Glassblowers Society, scientific glass is specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands and specifications of the scientific community. Per the Society’s website: “Scientific glassblowers provide highly specialized glass apparatus for all universities with graduate research programs, government, private, and industry-research laboratories, production facilities, the semiconductor industry, and many other aspects of scientific research.”

Scientific glass is primarily focused on function, precision, and consistency. And smoking devices made out of scientific glass are much the same. These pieces tend to use thicker glass, are typically more heat-resistant, and have minimal issues with stress fractures or other manufacturing defects.

Scientific glass pipes are primarily focused on function rather than style. As a result, they typically do not have a lot of color or decorations, and the designs are simple and minimal, more in line with something you’d expect to see in a research lab than a stoner’s dorm room. One big advantage of focusing on function is that many scientific glass pipes include high-performance percolators that require a high degree of precision to make well.

On the other hand, artisan glass — often called “heady glass” — is focused much more on design and style elements. Artisan pieces are often one of a kind, made by established artists with recognizable aesthetic styles and a cult following of high-end glass collectors. As such, these pieces can be very fun to smoke out of and many enjoy the sense that their pipe is more aligned with a piece of art than a smoking apparatus.

Artisan glass is focused much more on design and style elements. Photo by: Gina Coleman/Weedmaps

Image lightbox

The process of adding colors, crafting pipes into funky shapes, and executing complex designs often requires artists to use a slightly “softer” glass than a scientific glass piece. Additionally, the exclusive nature of artisan pieces often means that they carry heftier price tags than scientific glass pieces.

Choosing the glass that’s right for you

There are three main factors to consider when buying a glass piece:

What type of smoking experience do you want?

Do you want to smoke out of a simple spoon or chillum? Are you interested in the cooler, smoother, better-tasting smoke of a bong or bubbler? Do you want the hard-hitting, massive hits of a steamroller? Answering these questions will help narrow down the types of glass smoking devices that fit your personal criteria.

Form or function?

If you want consistently high-quality, precision performance, you can’t go wrong with a scientific glass piece. If you’re all about personal style, creativity, and flair, then you’ll love exploring the world of artisan glass. And remember, function and style are not mutually exclusive. Many people who like minimalist designs find scientific glass to be very aesthetically appealing.

What’s your budget?

If you’re on a tight budget and you simply need a piece that will get the job done, you might want to experiment with an affordable piece made in China. Don’t be surprised if you run into problems or if the piece breaks — at least replacing it won’t be too expensive. But if your budget gives you more room to shop around, have fun exploring the diversity of glass pieces made in the US by more hands-on glassblowers and artisans.

blue cheese strain review

Flavor
Effect

Lineage

Big Buddha Cheese x DJ Short’s Blueberry

Story

Bred by Barney’s Farm by pollinating a Big Buddha Cheese female with a pair of Blueberry males

Appearance

Compact, purple-tinged flowers with average resin coverage

Aroma

The high point of this strain for sure, the aroma was a wonderfully pungent mix of sweet blueberry and sharp, musky, putrid elements… which, yes, can be described as smelling like cheese. It’s a very strange and unique taste that you really only find in Cheese strains — alternately appealing and revolting, like many fine cheeses

Flavor

The taste took on more of the cheese elements than the smell did, while the berry sweetness fell to the background. One reviewer commented that there was even an iron/mineral-like taste, similar to what is found in very “goaty” cheeses, while others mainly picked up on peppery, sharp notes. The sweetness was still present, but the sharp tastes were stronger for sure.

Qualities

We had one outlier reviewer in our results that had a very uppy, motivational experience full of energy, exaggerated hand motions, and laughter… this contrasted with the experiences of the other reviewers yet was repeated on a secondary review, so we felt it worth mentioning. Sometimes meds simply affect people differently, so keep that in mind with this one, as we don’t normally have one review sticking out so much from the others.

The majority of staff felt that this was a wonderful relaxing med that served to take all the troubles and pains of the day and put the brakes on them. Starting off with a buzzing, warm body, strong forehead/temple pressure, and an immediate mood elevation, this strain felt really potent early on. It was a torquey med that stayed at medicinal levels for around 1.5 hours, only tailing off around hour 2. The dominant state was one of engaged but inactive focus, where the couch and a movie or video games were the perfect accompaniment. It was a great “stealth med” though, as the reviewer’s physical appearance was unaffected despite the potency. A soft drop (or perhaps a rise, since it was a “down” med overall) back to sobriety made this a smooth experience overall.

Blue Cheese is a strain of marijuana. Learn about the effects and characteristics of Blue Cheese, and view our collection of cannabis photography.

can you buy weed on amazon

How to Buy ‘Pot’ On Amazon

As California takes a big step toward legalizing marijuana, a synthetic—and legal—form of pot is getting attention. Kia Makarechi on why “K2” is feared by potheads and conservatives alike.

Kia Makarechi

“I trust marijuana,” says Craig X Rubin, outspoken pot-legalization advocate and marijuana consultant to the Showtime series, Weeds. “I don’t trust K2.”

It’s not often that Rubin finds himself in the same camp as conservative lawmakers, but that’s where he landed this month when a drug called K2 found its way into the national spotlight. An herbal mixture sprayed with a synthetic drug that is supposed to approximate the effects of marijuana, K2—legal and available online—has local legislatures racing to criminalize it.

“Why would you trust chemical corporations to spray some mystery substance on some mystery plants?” asks one pot smoker.

And in a rare bit of synergy, pot smokers seem to agree that the new drug offers few positives for all of its risks. For people who like their drugs organic and chemical free, K2 is the narco equivalent of a high-fructose, down-market energy drink.

“I would never smoke mystery shit—are people aware of what they’re buying?” asks a film and television producer in Los Angeles. “Why would you smoke some synthetic substance when one of the most appealing factors of marijuana is that it is all natural?”

Rubin agrees, noting that “while the herbs in these mixes might be legal, that doesn’t mean that can’t kill you. Why would you trust chemical corporations to spray some mystery substance on some mystery plants?”

“Mystery” is a word that pops up often when pot smokers talk about K2, and indeed, the manufacturers and distributors of drugs like K2 are, not surprisingly, shrouded in secrecy. Rubin says no one really knows who they are. “These are real quiet individuals that are just trying to make some cash, and they’re not going to brag about it.” Bouncing Bear Botanicals, a company that was raided by officials after news reports revealed it as a purveyor of K2 (despite the fact that the substance was not yet illegal), was “not interested” in providing comment, and emails to K2-Incense.com received no response.

How dangerous K2 actually is remains murky. The drug became news when it reportedly spurred 59 calls to U.S. poison centers since the beginning of this month. Then a toxicologist in Missouri announced he’d seen thirty teenagers in six weeks flow through local emergency rooms, tripping on the drug. On March 10, Kansas became the first state to ban the substance, and similar bills in other states are working their way toward law.

Unfolding against the backdrop of California’s bid to legalize and tax marijuana, the ballot initiative for which was approved on Wednesday, the K2 madness has illuminated America’s schizophrenic drug policy. If the reports about some of K2’s effects are true—hallucinations, severe agitation, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, vomiting and, in some cases, tremors and seizures, according to the Missouri doctor—it appears to be far more harmful than weed.

The science of JWH-018, the synthetic chemical sprayed onto most of these “herbal blends,” has been around for about 15 years. First synthesized by Clemson University chemist and professor John W. Huffman (hence the “JWH”), the chemical was created to see if the therapeutic effects of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, could be mimicked. Eventually, the recipe was stolen and the substance began turning up in incense that supposedly produced a calming effect in those who enjoyed it, mostly in Canada and across Europe. It wasn’t long, of course, before someone decided to smoke it.

The science behind the psychotropic effects of the JWH-018 compound is not yet complete. JWH-018 appears to excite the same CB1 and CB2 receptors that THC does. Unlike natural weed, however, the synthesized version is four times more potent when binding with CB1, and seems to have a three-fold preference for the CB1 over the CB2 receptor. This is relevant because it is the CB2 receptor that gives marijuana its medical properties—it affects pain and inflammation levels in the body. It thus appears as though K2 may provide a potent high, it lacks the medicinal properties that helped legitimize the pot-legalization movement.

For all these reasons, it’s hard to imagine that K2 would exist if it weren’t for marijuana being illegal. One 23-year-old former drug user notes that someone would only choose a “fake” alternative, even a legal one, “if it was cheaper, and worked as well or better than the illegal stuff.” For drug users of most levels, she noted, “Cost, effectiveness, and availability are far more important than the legality.”

It should be noted that fake marijuana is nothing new. “‘Fake pot’ has appeared in High Times magazine for over 20 years,” Rubin says. “What’s different is the whole chemical side of it—but the marketing engines, the publicity strategies are always the same.”

Even family-friendly Amazon.com sells a handful of “premium incense” blends through its Marketplace sellers. Incense has always served as a smokescreen for substances that are not just lit in the corner of a room, but also rolled-up in a sheet of Zig-Zag. An herbal mix called Passion Flower is the number one seller in the “Everything Else” category on Amazon, along with “tobacco” pipes, rolling paper, and bongs. Another product, called Blueberry Haze, is marketed as “the new standard in legal herbal hybrid buds.” The product description reads, “This isn’t the haze your [sic] gonna want to share with your friend once you smoke it.”

Many of the reviews for the “Premium Blend Smoke Herbal Incense” mentioned K2 by name, and one reviewer even equates the two. “I have bought K2 Summit in the past and I felt it was too strong for my liking (and a little pricey). I recently tried the Premium Blend K2 and I was pleasantly surprised by it’s effects.”

K2 has spurred typical posturing on the part of politicians. (Missouri State Rep. Ward Franz’s statement, “We don’t know much about this, but it’s going to end up killing somebody,” is, in itself, an oxymoron.) But the real reason that K2 has caught people’s interest is because of how reflects back on regular marijuana, or what dedicated smokers refer to as “God’s herb.”

The DEA, despite its haphazard raids on clinics in states where medical marijuana is legal, is fighting a battle it and everyone else knows it will never win. And since marijuana and cannabinoid substances can be patented (the federal government already owns a few), some are musing that marijuana could be America’s next big agricultural boom. But for now it’s clear that K2 or any “alternative marijuana” is not going to overtake the real thing. As Rubin notes, “I’m not going to trust chemical corporations to spray unknown plants to give me a ‘weed-like’ effect when I can have real weed. This ‘alternative herbal weed’ isn’t herbal at all, and it’s hardly an alternative.”

Great strain, earthy and fruity, 22% thc,starts off like a nice indica, euphoric yet kinda couch locked, but eventually turns on you. Becomes uplifting and energetic almost. Definitely a must try. I’d rate 4.5 stars if I could.
