Indica-dominant Hybrid-

A NEW BC CREATION: Cherry Pie X Linsday OGEMI’s Breath!!!

Cherry Pie is a indica dominant hybrid of Grand Daddy Purple and Durban Poison. In structural composition, it has dense buds with orange hair all over and displays a slight tint of purple. Inspiring the name of this medical marijuana strain, the aroma is that of cherry pies. It is most commonly used by patients who are suffering from evident symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, migraines and other stress-oriented syndromes.

Lindsay OG is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the infamous OG Kush X another unknown hybrid strain. A favourite of hybrid lovers, Lindsay OG packs a full-bodied high that will hit both mind and body with a high level of potency. It starts in the head with a sense of clarity, clearing your mind and filling you with a lifted happiness and ease. As your mind settles into this clear-headed state, a deeply relaxing body high will wash over your physical form, locking you to the couch and leaving you pretty sedated. Thanks to these effects and its high average THC level, Lindsay OG is often said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, chronic stress or anxiety, cramps or muscle spasms and appetite loss or nausea. This bud has a classic pungent skunky flavour with a lightly sweet exhale. The aroma is earthy and herbal with a heavy skunky pungent that lingers long after the nugs are burned away.

Bushman Salve CBD

Bushman Salve

We’re probably stating the obvious here, but pain is a drag! Whether it’s chronic (no pun intended) or acute, pain can make your life unbearable. Up until recently, the solution for a pain that just won’t go away has been powerful opioids.

These drugs often cause more problems than they’re worth. Thankfully, a new, non-addictive treatment for pain is taking the medical community by storm: CBD cream.

CBD cream is just a cream with CBD extract mixed in. Big Pharma makes creams and lotions with lots of additives and preservatives, but the best CBD creams contain ingredients you can find in your kitchen—nothing more.

CBD cream can be used to treat a very specific area of your body that’s experiencing pain. If you take CBD oil for a sore muscle, you’ll get a general pain relief throughout your entire body, but the muscle pain itself may not completely disappear.

On the other hand, if you apply CBD cream to your sore muscle, all of CBD’s pain-relieving effects will focus on that one area.

CBD has been used to treat a long list of medical issues, including cancer and diabetes. More specifically, CBD cream works to treat the following disorders:

  • Chronic pain
  • Acute pain
  • Sore muscles
  • Sore joints
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin infections
  • Rashes
  • Burns

What is CBG?

Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid typically most abundant in low-THC and high-CBD cannabis strains, including hemp. Like THC, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBG, however, acts as a buffer to the psychoactivity of THC by working to alleviate the paranoia sometimes caused by higher levels of THC.

CBG works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. Research has shown it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Strains high in CBG will be beneficial treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.

Effects and Benefits

Research has shown that CBG is effective in the treatment of a variety of symptoms and conditions. Examples of conditions for which CBG is particularly effective in providing symptom relief are listed below:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

I started taking CBD in April of 2019 for my sciatica. The pain from the sciatica was from my lower back, down the back of my back of my left leg. When I would get up to walk, I would have a lot of pain. I was diagnosed with a sciatica in December of 2015. I suffered for 3 1/2 years, then MJPC introduced me to CBD. I Take CBD everyday, One drop in the morning, and now i'm able to walk without pain or no limping anymore. CBD started working the first week in April of 2019.Thankful to MJPC consultant for providing expert advice.

Last September I went to my doctor, and within two weeks I had a ultrasound and a catscan. what the catscan found was that I have a growth going from my colon to my bladder, I was in extreme pain. At the end of October I went back to see the surgen, and when he walked into his office and looked at me and said "wow, I don't know what you have been taking or what you have been doing, but keep it up, because you're certainly not the same man that I looked at a month ago, So what have you been doing or taking?" I showed him the CBD nano shots that I've been taking, and he said "if things are okay and you're not in acute pain, just keep it up, because the only other alternative is major stomach surgery, and that I would be put on a colonoscapy bag, and that could become permenant". So now I've Been taking CBD nano shots for a year, and the growth has shrunk to a third of the size. I will keep taking CBD nano shots, and I thank my son for getting this to me, it's like it's given me another chance and that is something that I will forever be greatful for, it's turned me into a believer. Many Hych'qas.

I just want to explain I also got a strong pain on my left side I went to see dr at the health centre and she gave me a pill to cut down pain for my partial amputated hand to ease the muscle pain. But I had to wait for prescription a day and I thought I would try a small like a 1/4 of a dropper in the morning but man it eased that pain. So I have been just taking the pill 1/4 of the prescribed time to ease swelling in my muscles. I was happy tho that cbd helped me She sounded against cbd but I told her in the two years after the last big escapade w seizure I burned my hand which is reason why I ended up w amputation. so I opened my mind to try cbd As much as I had been closed minded to marijuana. But in the two years I have not had bad seizures or any seizures for that matter Plus I’ve been slowly weening myself off prescriptions which makes me feel happy. One big eye opener to me was when I shared a ride w a couple of elderly women on the granny go go service before handidart got in our area. One asked her friend have u tried cbd and the other said no have you. She answered yes I swear by it it helps me more than my pills. Man did my head turn so quick to look behind me because I was in the front seat, that lady opened my eyes,heart and mind to cbd. So I gave it a try and have no regrets for the choice. Those elderly ladies would have been my parents or grandparents ages. But cbd has been a great help in my health care in many ways

A ‘Red Market’ would create an industry standard by and for Indigenous people running cannabis dispensaries on their sovereign land, says Thomas Tyler Bob. Digital Art by Kelsie Kilawna
‘We are starting to flourish here and it’s our time … to step up and start providing for our own,’ says Snaw-naw-as dispensary owner.

 

Thomas Tyler Bob is working with other Indigenous dispensary owners across different territories to establish a “Red Market” — an economically-viable industry by and for Indigenous Peoples. 

“This is modern-day First Nations business, understanding the complexities in laws and opportunities within nations,” he tells IndigiNews in an interview on April 15. 

Bob is Snaw-naw-as, a member of Nanoose First Nation. His traditional name is Hulp’put stun, which he says means “to bring it home to the family.” He’s also the owner of Mary Jane’s Pure Cure (MJPC).

Bob says he launched MJPC “just over two years ago” as a consulting company because he wanted to help people understand how cannabis can be used. He says he was inspired to start the company after his dad used hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products as part of his cancer treatment. 

With permission, Bob says he hit the road, and began attending pow wows to educate people about cannabis. For the most part, he says he was “welcomed with open arms,” and when people shared concerns, he was able to ease them by sharing his intentions. 

“We explained that we were just trying to teach people what it is and how to use it in a safe manner,” he says. “Elders started opening up and seeing that we were trying to come in a culturally safe manner, and that we were there to teach and not sell.”

Bob has since expanded his company to do “local delivery, mail-outs, web work, in-store shopping [and] curbside pick-up.”

Now he says he’s working with other Indigenous industry leaders — like Cory Brewer from Timxw Wellness in Syilx territory, as well as First Nations leaders and Elders across various territories.

“The whole big thing is creating a regulated Red Market where you have stores that are running on sovereign lands in their own nations so they can create laws and regulations, bylaws, and understandings of how to legally trade this product through various different routes and networks,” says Bob.

With a goal of helping other nations, his team created Mary’s Maps, “a digital app for Indigenous businesses — sovereign dispensaries operating on sovereign territories.” 

“It doesn’t include the provincial locations, just the Indigenous stores,” he explains. “Right now we have 200 registered businesses and we’re climbing, and Google Maps is behind us for advertisement.”

“This is just the start of it,” he says. “Once nations start to understand that we can do this together as a collective group.”

“The sovereignty is the most beautiful part,” he says. “I think with land restrictions we struggle to become economically viable being subject to reserve lands … We don’t need to be subject to listening to governments enforce their laws in our territories where we have our own land codes or have our sovereign rights. 

“We are starting to flourish here and it’s our time … to step up and start providing for our own and stop sticking our hands out. It’s time to work, put our people through school, learn to grow and supply with other nations through trade.” 

Bob’s hope for the future is that this will become an industry led by Indigenous Peoples as sovereigns of the land, as protected by various founding documents such as the Royal Proclamation of 1763.

“Over the long term each nation will have an opportunity to own their own share and be open to trade with other nations. We need to keep it as our own so we can teach that to the young ones,” he says.

Education Is Key

BC college to offer province’s first cannabis retail course

British Columbia college is looking to supply a fresh batch of professionally-trained budtenders to the province’s growing cannabis retail market.

Okanagan College announced last week a new online Cannabis Retail Sales course set to launch Feb. 17 — increasing the total number of cannabis-related courses it offers to eight.

As recreational cannabis has only been legal since Oct. 2018, it can be hard for aspiring employees to verify they have legitimate experience in the industry.

 To help hop that hurdle, the cannabis retail course is designed to provide the formal training required to equip new workers with the skills required in the growing field.

Students will be provided with an in-depth knowledge on legal products, dosing expertise, cannabis retail regulations, and an overall understanding of plant strains, cannabinoids, terpenes and flavanoids, according to the college website.

Over the years, cannabis oil has been used as an effective treatment for anxiety and depression. In fact, CBD effects on anxiety is one of the most intriguing areas of modern cannabis research. 

What’s the Best CBD Oil for Anxiety Relief?

The best CBD oil to explore CBD’s potential for anxiety relief is any CBD oil that contains a full spectrum of:

  • Cannabinoids, and;
  • Terpenes

Cannabinoids like CBD and terpenes are associated with countless health benefits. Plus, some researchers suggest that CBD works best in combination with other hemp-derived compounds like other cannabinoids and terpenes, through a process they call ‘the entourage effect’.

A full spectrum or full-plant extract CBD oil makes the best case for the entourage effect.

CBD for Insomnia: Can it help?

CBD For Insomnia

What most of us wouldn’t give for a good night’s sleep. Without it, we can’t function at peak emotional, physical, and mental levels, yet in today’s high-stress, plugged-in world, so many of us don’t get decent sleep.

Ailments like insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and excessive daytime sleepiness cause consumers to turn to over-the-counter and prescription pharmaceuticals for relief, yet many of these medications have their own serious side effects and adverse risks. 

For that reason, many consumers are exploring natural sleep aids like cannabis. We know THC-rich varieties can help people achieve sleep, but what about those sensitive to or afraid of its intoxicating effects?

Can cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating cannabis compound, also offer sleep benefits?

ResearchTrusted Source published in 2019 looked at whether CBD could improve sleep and or reduce anxiety. The study involved 72 subjects, with 47 experiencing anxiety and 25 experiencing poor sleep. The subjects were each given 25 milligrams (mg) of CBD in capsule form each day. In the first month, 79.2 percent of the patients reported lower anxiety levels and 66.7 percent reported better sleep.

Pain, which may also cause sleep problems, can be helped by CBD as well. A 2018 reviewTrusted Source in Frontiers in Pharmacology noted that there’s a fair amount of evidence to support the claim that CBD soothes pain. The authors note that by reducing chronic pain, CBD can improve sleep.

Other research tells us that CBD affects the sleep cycle. Research from 2014Trusted Source looked at four patients with Parkinson’s disease. It found that CBD improved the symptoms of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), a disorder in which a person acts out their dreams. RBD is associated with poor sleep and nightmares.

2017 review also noted that CBD may be helpful in treating RBD, and that it shows potential for treating excessive daytime sleepiness.
