What's the difference between
Indica And Sativa?
The main difference between Indica and Sativa is in the
leaves. Sativa leaves are much smaller and thinner then
Indica leaves. Sativa marijuana plants are mostly
outdoor plants which takes a longer time to grow and harvest.
The taste is more pure and mellow compared to the indoor
cultivated marijuana plants.
Cannabaceae family. A putative species of the genus Cannabis,
it is typically distinguished from Cannabis sativa. Schultes
described indica as relatively short, conical, and densely
branched, whereas Sativa was described as tall and laxly
branched. Anderson described Indica plants as having
short, broad leaflets whereas those of the Sativa species
were characterized as relatively long and narrow. Cannabis
Indica plants conforming to Schulte's and Anderson's descriptions
may have originated from the Hindu Kush mountain range.
Because of the often harsh and variable (extremely cold
winters, and warm summers) climate of those parts, Indica
well-suited for cultivation in temperate climates.
Broad-leafed Cannabis Indica plants in India, Afghanistan
and Pakistan are traditionally
cultivated for the production of hashish. Pharmacologically,
Indica landraces tend to have a higher cannabidiol (CBD)
content than Sativa strains. Most commercially available
Indica strains have been selected for low levels of CBD
(which is not psychoactive), with some users reporting more
of a "stoned" feeling and less of a "high" from indica when
compared to Sativa. The cannabis Indica high is often referred
to as a "body buzz" and has beneficial properties such as
pain relief in addition to being an effective treatment
for insomnia and an anxiolytic, as opposed to Sativa's more
common reports of a "spacey" and mental inebriation,
and even, albeit rarely, comprising hallucinations. Differences
in the terpenoid content of the essential oil may account
for some of these differences in effect.
Common Indica strains for recreational or medicinal use
include Kush and Northern Lights. A recent genetic analysis
included both the narrow-leaflet and wide-leaflet drug "biotypes"
under Indica, as well as southern and eastern Asian hemp
(fiber / seed) landraces and wild Himalayan populations.
Chronic marijuana is a plant for the new age. Developed
to be stronger, shinier crystals, and tastier than any other
plant. The indica highs are most often described as
a pleasant body buzz. Indicas are great for relaxation,
stress relief, and for an overall sense of calm and serenity.
Marijuana indicas are also very effective for overall body
pain relief, and often used in the treatment of insomnia.
They are the late - evening choice of many smokers as an
all - night
sleep aid. A few pure indica strains are very potent in
THC, and will cause the "couch lock"
effect, enabling the smoker to simply sit still and enjoy
the experience of the smoke.
Cannabis sativa is an annual herbaceous plant in the Cannabaceae
family. Humans have cultivated this herb throughout recorded
history as a source of industrial fiber, seed oil, food,
drugs and medicine. Each part of the plant is harvested
differently, depending on the purpose of its use.
Its seed, chiefly used as caged-bird feed, is a valuable
source of protein. The flowers (and to a lesser extent the
leaves, stems, and seeds) contain psychoactive and physiologically
active chemical compounds known as cannabinoids that are
consumed for recreational, medicinal, and spiritual purposes.
When so used, preparations of flowers (marijuana) and leaves
and preparations derived from resinous extract (hashish)
are consumed by smoking, vaporizing and oral ingestion.
Historically, tinctures, teas, and ointments have also been
common preparations. The sativa high is often characterized
as uplifting and energetic. The effects of a sativa marijuana
are mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and
well - being, as
well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain
symptoms. A few pure sativa's
are also very high in THC content. They are known to have
a quite spacey, or hallucinogenic, effect. Sativa's are
a good choice for daytime smoking.
Medical Marijuana and Insurance Companies
Given the newness of the Arizona Medical Marijuana program,
there are many outstanding questions that eligible patients
may have. One of the most prevalent questions remains
whether a patient can bill his or her insurance company
for the marijuana itself.
Several major insurance providers operating in Arizona including
Aetna, Humana, Cigna and Health Net have not commented about
whether or not they will cover medical marijuana. The reason,
at least according to Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Arizona
is that it’s not FDA approved.
On a federal level, marijuana is ranked as a schedule 1
drug, even though more than dozen
states permit the use of medical marijuana. The status of
cannabis would have to be changed
to a schedule 2 drug in order for insurance companies to
be willing to cover it. This issue is not exclusive to Arizona,
however. It’s an issue to all states in the US that permit
the use of medical marijuana for eligible patients.
For now at least, patients are forced to pay for the full
cost of medical marijuana out of their
own pockets, and only certain methods of payments are accepted.
While patients are not presently able to bill their insurance
companies, the growing statewide sentiment on this issue
may help to push through legislation that changes current
policies regarding this topic.
More than a dozen states allow their residents to smoke
marijuana if they’ve been diagnosed
with certain health conditions. Even so, major health insurers
don’t treat it like a prescription
drug and won’t pay for patients to buy it.
Marijuana is cleared for medical use in 15 states
including Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan and New
Jersey and the District of Columbia. As of April 2011, there
were 10 states
with pending legislation that would legalize medical marijuana,
Massachusetts, New York and North Carolina.
Still, not one major health
insurer covers medical marijuana,and there’s no indication that it will happen anytime
soon. That’s because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
has not given its seal of approval to medical marijuana.
POST - TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORER
Session 1 Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Session 2 Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD)
disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered
by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks,
nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable
thoughts about the event.
Many people who go through traumatic events have difficulty
adjusting and coping for a while. But with time and taking
care of yourself, such traumatic reactions usually get better.
In some cases, though, the symptoms can get worse or last
for months or even years.
Sometimes they may completely shake up your life. In a case
such as this, you may have post-traumatic stress disorder.
disorder symptoms typically start within three months of
a traumatic event.
In a small number of cases, though, PTSD symptoms may not
appear until years after the event.
Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms are generally grouped
into three types: intrusive memories, avoidance and numbing,
and increased anxiety or emotional arousal (hyper arousal).
Symptoms of intrusive memories may include:
Flashbacks, or reliving the traumatic event for minutes
or even days at a time
Upsetting dreams about the traumatic event
Symptoms of avoidance and emotional numbing may include:
Trying to avoid thinking or talking about the traumatic
Feeling emotionally numb
Avoiding activities you once enjoyed
Hopelessness about the future
Difficulty maintaining close relationships
Symptoms of anxiety and increased emotional arousal may
Irritability or anger
Overwhelming guilt or shame
Self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much
Being easily startled or frightened
Hearing or seeing things that aren't there
Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms can come and go.
You may have more post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms
when things are stressful in general, or when you run into
reminders of what you went through. You may hear a car backfire
and relive combat
experiences, for instance. Or you may see a report on the
news about a rape and
feel overcome by memories of your own assault.

This is a poison!
If your going to popular gatherings other than a trusted
caregiver or dispensary you are most likely getting duped.
The unfortunate fact is that you don't know what your getting.
Sure the medicine looks great and you like that tight nug,
you just may have purchased a deadly chemical called
Ask the vendor if regulators were used such as:
Top Load, Bush Master, Gravity, Flower Master or Phosphoload.
If you smoke or ingest this dangerous chemical you have
illness. These products are used by growers to enhance
the flowers looks and tightness of the bud, also it makes
the bud heavier when weighed, congratulations you just got
This contributes nothing to you and plenty to the vendor.
Only the dispensary's and
"some caregivers" make sure you are getting a natural product
without any chemicals or regulators.
Unfortunately there are no rules in place to require proof
of what you are buying. Demand that the vendor provide
you with verification (testing analysis) of the product.
There are plenty of products containing this chemical and
being given to YOU, the patient
without any concern to your protection. Once again
the all mighty dollar has extended its
greedy hand and put your health at the back of the line.
Clones are another iffy purchase. If you really don't
know what your looking for your clone purchase will most
likely not make it to maturity. You need a very strong
magnifier to see the parasites on a clone. They will
reside underneath the leaf not on top and are not visible
to the naked eye. BE INFORMED BE AWARE
Be pro active, hold the seller or organization accountable
- if possible have your medicine
tested or call for test results from the vendor before donation
or the purchase of raffle tickets.
What is the THC content and the CBD content. The same
goes with edibles. Find out what
your eating! Make sure your edible has the ingredients
listed and a way to contact the seller if something is not
right or you get sick. Use common sense when visiting
these gatherings, question everything and if you buy make
sure you get the vendor information and start
being pro active with your health.

As Halloween approaches we have read news of edibles are
being passed out to young children. An edible is the
same as if you gave the child a prescription drug. These
edibles are medicine and to be kept out of the reach of
children and not given or shared with anyone that does not
possess a program ID. Keep yourmedical
marijuana safe from everyone,
say in a locked medicine cabinet, or locked container.
Marijuana stocks could
be absolutely huge in 2013, as efforts to legalize the
drug in more states continue.
Already, marijuana possession and recreational use has
been made legal in two states (Colorado and Washington)
since the beginning of November 2012, and numerous senators,
organizations and voters in many other states are also
strongly in favor of the legalization of marijuana.

Consumer products: Bushmaster,Gravity,Phosphoload, Flower Dragon,
Gravity is poison and venders have been selling it to
the marijuana growing community for years and have been
getting away with it.
We now know that Gravity
is in fact a PGR called Paclobutrazol. This chemical
retards internode length and reduces maturation time
significantly. When used on
marijuana, this results in tighter flowering
tops that can be harvested earlier. This has made Gravity
an attractive fertilizer additive to many unsuspecting
While Phosphoload may contain “powerful earth elements”
it also includes; 17,800ppm Daminozide and 20.6ppm Paclobutrazol.
These two dangerous chemicals are not approved for crops
intended for human consumption, and should never be
used for growing medicine. Still want that super
The tight nug is perfectly alright if its natural to
the plant...you will have no smell though depending
on the strain, don't be confused about medicine that
has no smell, it is most likely organic. Adding
a regulator to your growing plant to make it heavier
for profit is not good for patients.
Example: Skunk #1 grown indoor or outdoor organically
or hydroponically will always smell like skunk.
Have you thought about ingesting medicine that uses
regulators in your edibles?
Products known to contain Paclobutrazol and Daminozide
have been banned for sale in California and Oregon but
are still readily available through Internet distributors,
and who knows how much is still in the hands of marijuana
growers. In truth this regional ban will have very little
effect on the availability if these PGRs. The good news
for users of medical cannabis is that companies now
offer testing for these dangerous chemicals. Know
your caregiver and what he/she is offering you.

about your edible!
I was hesitant to begin with and didn't much care for
smoking because I would hack myself into a coughing
frenzy. This Sour Grape is the smoothest most
wonderful medicine I have tried. I did not hack
and cough at all. The medicine worked on my chronic
pain do to arthritis.
The Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies are really super yummy.
Wasn't what I was expecting. Thanks!
Sciatic nerve making my leg hurt so bad to the point
of tears - took my medicine and the pain subsided.
Not a cure but it helped. Thank You
→ Pharmacology ←
Although the main psychoactive chemical compound in
Cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the plant is
known to contain about sixty cannabinoids; however,
most of these "minor" cannabinoids are only produced
in trace amounts. Besides THC, another cannabinoid produced
in high concentrations by some plants is cannabidiol
(CBD), which is not psychoactive but has recently been
shown to block the effect of THC in the nervous system.
Differences in the chemical composition of Cannabis
varieties may produce different effects in humans. Synthetic
THC, called dronabinol, does not contain CBD, CBN, or
other cannabinoids, which is one reason why its pharmacological
effects may differ significantly from those of natural
