California: Nestdrop Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Launches GoFundMe Campaign

Be drunk forever with the new Keurig for Jell-O shots

The dawn of the Keurig has made getting your morning cup of coffee faster and more efficient than ever before. Now, that same phenomenon can happen with Jell-O shots.

The Jevo is an automated Jell-O shot maker, marketed as being able to create 20 Jell-O shots in just 10 minutes. College party houses everywhere rejoice: a new, drunken dawn is on the horizon.

The machine is being marketed mostly to bars, because, you know, regular consumers probably don't need 20 Jell-O shots every 10 minutes. It is currently available for pre-order.

LEDs have the potential to change how crops are grown

The use of LEDs to provide specific light wavelengths could allow growers to increase nutritional values of edible crops, enhance the intensity of foliage and flower color and improve the postharvest longevity of ornamental and edible crops.
 

Improvement in the light intensity delivered by light emitting diodes (LEDs) is helping to expand their use for the production of both edible and ornamental crops. Research with LEDs has been going on for about 30 years. Only within the last 10 years have increases in the light intensities of LEDs allowed researchers to study the direct effects of narrow wave bands of light on plant physiology.

A Marijuana Breathalyzer Might be Hitting the Streets Soon!

One of the major pushbacks that federal marijuana reform faces is the difficulty associated with detecting marijuana on drivers. Marijuana intoxication typically requires a blood test to confirm that the driver has marijuana in their system.

Tougher to detect marijuana than alcohol

Police officers find it much more difficult to detect marijuana on drivers than alcohol. A Durango county police spokesman said that officers will often charge a driver with an alcohol DUI if both alcohol and drugs are suspected because it is the same charge in the eyes of the courts.

One downside of marijuana legalization: major energy use

Across the country, there’s a growing trend toward the legalization of marijuana. Four states — Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Alaska — have voted to allow people to possess limited amounts of marijuana use for personal use and also to let producers apply for licenses to produce and sell it. D.C. also just voted to allow personal possession. All of this is on top of the 23 states that allow it for medical reasons.

Why Test Cannabis?

Higher Standards

Weedmaps seek to educate and encourage our industry toward a higher standard of service, where potency testing, standardized dosage, and Quality Assurance testing (pesticides/fungicides and microbiological contamination) become the accepted and acknowledged industry standard.

Microbiological testing allows dispensaries to identify known human pathogens, determine potential shelf life of medicine, and actively seek to provide patients with the highest quality medicinal Cannabis available.

Safety

All Medicines as well as any alcoholic beverages have information regarding the strength or dosage of the product, it should be no different with Medical Cannabis.

Abou Dhabi: Experts defend the electronic cigarette to an anti-smoking conference

Health experts have defended the electronic cigarette during a Friday anti-smoking conference in Abu Dhabi, dismissing concerns that she could promote adolescent addiction to nicotine. Most of these experts, however, agreed that it should regulate the use of e-cigarettes because its effects are still too little known.

A real support tool for weaning?

Konstantinos Farsalinos, researcher at the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center in Athens, AFP quoted a study which nearly 19,500 respondents, mainly the United States and Europe, 81% reported having stopped smoking thanks to the electronic cigarette. "On average, they quit in the first month of using the e-cigarette," he said. "We do not see that with any other method to help stop smoking."

World’s first hemp airplane under construction

Hemp and resin panels are replacing fiberglass in an experimental plane project that seeks to raise $500,000 on Kickstarter.

Ontario resident and former organic restaurant operator Derek Kesek intends to fly a 75 percent hemp plane that runs on hemp-based bio-diesel from Kitty Hawk, N.C. in Spring 2016, Outside Magazine reports March 16.

Hemp — the non-euphoric form of cannabis (aka marijuana) — has been used for millennia as a food, fuel and fiber. The ultra-tough fibers of the fast-growing, cane-like weed could also support newer, lighter aircraft.
