My Dabs Taste Like PureGold

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 05/20/2013 - 08:21 pm

PureGold is an oil derived without using any chemicals to extract cannabinoids from Medical Marijuana Plants. Although the lab doesnt share its technique, the company ensures quality with 93% pure cannabinoids. Also a small percentage of Limonene (a natural terpene that grows in citrus fruit). The limonene actually enhances the flavor and smoke-ability of the oil. The taste is very citrusy but smooth. PureGold smells fresh and can be identified by its sleek packaged design. Most wax/oils are rather sticky and hard to manage when scooped into a small container. Whereas the PUREGOLD is in a gel capsule. You snip the top of the dropper, heat up your nail from your dabber and then squ ...

“Right to Obtain” means cities can ba...

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 05/14/2013 - 02:24 pm

By Theodore Hartman 
On Monday May 6th  2013 The California Supreme Court handed down by a unanimous ruling stating that "While some counties and cities might consider themselves well-suited to accommodating medical marijuana dispensaries, conditions in other communities might lead to the reasonable decision that such facilities within their borders, even if carefully sited, well managed, and closely monitored, would present unacceptable local risks and burdens.” and that cities can use their zoning authority to ban storefront dispensaries. Now this decision has been a long time coming and a ruling wasn’t expected until June. The ruling means that any city that wants t ...

Blazin’ Artists #1 : Adam Roth

Blazin’ Artists #1:  ADAM ROTH
By Daniel Rolnik
When you mix together the right amount of 80’s action figure knowledge and a talent for drawing, you get an Adam Roth . He’s an LA-based artist currently creating a series of science fiction adventures, featuring loose narratives like you would create in your head as a child while playing with your favorite toys.
His mental catalog of every designer, manufacturer and story behind the action figures made in the late 80s and early 90s puts the Travel Chanel’s toy hunter to shame. Plus, he owns most of the good ones. I know because I helped him move once and nearly pulled my back lifting the endless array of ca ...

Can Hemp Help Cure Bed Bug Problems?

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 04/20/2013 - 05:48 pm

As I was looking up about cannabis and its use as a medicine in the Ayurvedic medicinal tradition I happened upon a curious common use of hemp that may be very important.
 The last few years have seen a surge in gigantic Bedbug infestation has spread to most if not all of the country; especially within hotels and plaguing major cities. According to an article from 2010 by Lynn Bruno on MSNBC.com back then in 2010 exterminators were getting 57% more calls for the last 5 years till then. I remember distinctly the curious news stories devoted to bedbugs and chuckling at all the “don’t let the bed bugs bite.”
 Bedbugs are small tiny little insects that like to bite ...

Depression vs. Marijuana - A Personal...

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 04/11/2013 - 11:44 am

Depression. One of the many misunderstood and misused words in the English dictionary. What exactly causes depression? How does it effect a person's daily life? And the biggest question of all, how do you get rid of it? For me, I turned to good ol' marijuana.
 
I've lived with depression for practically my whole life. I grew up with a rough past, but then again who hasn't in this day and age? For years I battled the ever growing sadness that threatened to engulf and drown me on a daily basis. Soon that sadness grew into hatred and then finally, suicidal tendencies. I hated my life, I hated every aspect of it. The thought of waking up every morning to do nothing but fake a smile on my ...

Dabbigail Blogs On Dabs

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 04/03/2013 - 02:57 pm

I've got my metal dab stick in one hand and 2 grams of some golden flake lavendar cheese wax extracted from a long process involving butane and a vaccuum purge in the other. The texture is that much like of brown sugar, with patience and a steady hand I'm able to scoop about .2 grams onto the end of my dab stick being sure not to let any of the wax fall off. I take my blue propane torch and spark a flame. As I gently take off the shroud of my bong to heat my titanium nail, the whitest point of the flame directs me. The nail gets hot. I carefully shut the valve on the torch, pick up the shroud to place back over the nail, all while dabstick and wax still in hand. As I bring the stick down wit ...

Does Marijuana Affect Your Dreams?

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 03/23/2013 - 02:31 pm

 
    It has been known for quite some time that marijuana is a wonderful tool to use for insomnia. Many medical marijuana patients smoke cannabis for precisely this reason, and rolling up a fatty before bedtime has become a must. Still there are some stoners that report that during their continual use of marijuana although the sleep is blissful, they have lost the ability to dream. Could this be a coincidence, or is there a deeper meaning linked between Mary Jane and good ol’ sand man?
 
There have been studies done to test this exact theory, and in 1975 a scientist by the name of Feinberg conducted a series of tests in which he recorded how much eye moveme ...

by Find Medical Marijuana Dispensaries at Nugs.com on 02/16/2013 - 09:22 pm

The Problem:
 
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is believed to be an autoimmune disease that affects the nervous system.  Damage to the protective coating of the nerves causes disruption to nerve impulses and symptoms of MS include fatigue, mobility problems, cognitive difficulties, pain, and dizziness.  In patients with multiple sclerosis, spasticity is also a common symptom which is hard to control by conventional medications (some of which have harmful effects of their own). 
 
The Test:
 
The study was completed with 30 patients with MS and spasticity who were otherwise mentally and physically healthy.  Previous reports have suggested that cannabinoid rece ...
