Windu OG Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Windu OG Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Windu OG marijuana strain is a cross between Master Kush and Hindu Kush I’m told. The Windu OG strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid. As is the case with most Indicas, the Windu OG strain gives a great body high and calms the soul. After consuming some Windu OG, I was ready for a long nights sleep. The nugs look like green popcorn pieces, with some pieces being the size of golf balls. The strain I got was light green and covered in trichomes. I’ve heard of some samples out there that have purple

How To Stop Snails And Slugs From Eating Your Marijuana Plants

By Robert Bergman Snails, slugs and Cannabis We all know what they look like.  Slugs are slimy creatures about an inch long with long probing antennae.  Snails are slugs in a mobile home.  Their shells are spiral shaped.  The snail can completely withdraw inside the shell when threatened. You know you have a slug or snail problem, even if you don’t see them, by the tell-tale glistening silvery trail they leave behind when passing through the area.  These slimy nocturnal mollusks attack seedlings and carve holes in older leaves. Providing a mulch layer to house frogs and toads offers a

Do Health Insurance Companies Cover Medical Marijuana?

A question that I often get asked is ‘does my health insurance company cover medical marijuana?’ Unfortunately, the answer is no. Medical marijuana has been proven to be an effect form of treatment for numerous conditions. There are well over 20 states in America that allow some form of medical marijuana. Exactly how many states allow medical marijuana depends on your definition of a medical marijuana program. Some states allow many forms of medical marijuana, while other states only allow CBD-only forms of medical marijuana. In the case of Minnesota, smoking medical marijuana is prohibited – you have to vaporize

Barcelona Passes One Year Ban On New Cannabis Clubs

The Barcelona City Council passed legislation Friday that bans the opening of new cannabis clubs for one year. The ban seeks to halt the spread of cannabis clubs in Barcelona until more regulations can be passed. There are currently an estimated 160+ cannabis clubs in Barcelona. Cannabis clubs in Barcelona, Spain are only legal for club members. However, there have been alledged issues with some clubs serving cannabis to anyone that frequents the establishments, and that the cannabis was purchased illegally, rather than grown by the club. A club was recently shut down for suspected illegal activity. The club was

County In Washington May Block Electricity To Marijuana Businesses

The roll out of marijuana legalization in Washington has been very slow. It seems like there are new roadblocks and hurdles around every corner. Many cities and counties have put in place moratoriums and bans to prevent marijuana businesses from operating. Cowlitz County in Washington may try a tactic that I haven’t ever heard of before. The Cowlitz County Public Utility District is considering blocking electricity from marijuana businesses. Anyone that has ever maintained an indoor marijuana garden knows that electricity is vital to success. Without electricity, there are no lights, and with no lights, there are no harvests. It’s

Medical Marijuana Could Help Treat Sickle Cell Disease

People who suffer from sickle cell disease have to deal with a lot of pain. Patients with sickle cell disease have crescent shaped blood cells, compared to disc shaped blood cells in people who don’t suffer from sickle cell disease. These cells block blood flow, which causes pain, fatigue, and organ damage. I’ve heard people that suffer from sickle cell disease describe the pain as being like nails poking their entire body. Doctors usually prescribe opiate based pain killers like morphine for sickle cell disease. Opiate prescriptions have a lot of side effects including respiratory issues, damage to organs, and

How Much Will Legal Marijuana Cost In Washington?

Washington State will finally start legal recreational marijuana sales next month. Implementing legal recreational marijuana sales has been a very slow process in Washington. Both Washington and Colorado legalized marijuana during the 2012 Election. However, Colorado started legal sales in January of this year, over half a year before Washington. As an Oregon resident, I have been eagerly awaiting the rollout of sales in Washington. I plan on heading up there for weekend trips on a regular basis, and plan to frequent the marijuana stores as much as possible. The main question I have, which is a question I’m sure

Will Seattle Get Its Own 'Marijuana District'

I have always loved Seattle. Growing up in Oregon, I have traveled to Seattle numerous times with friends and family. Before Bo Jackson ran over Brian Bozworth, I was a huge Seattle Seahawks fan, and my dad took me to games at the King Dome a lot. I always enjoyed walking around Seattle before and after games and seeing all of the typical tourist destinations. Seattle will no doubt get even cooler once legal recreational marijuana sales start here soon. There is one particular area of Seattle that will be home to the largest concentration of stores according to the

Jim Greig Inducted Into The Weed Blog Hall Of Fame

I received some outstanding news and some very sad news today while I was at work. The good news is Oregon’s marijuana legalization initiative ran by New Approach Oregon has surpassed the 100,000 signature mark. The sad news is my good friend Jim Greig has passed away and won’t get to see the initiative on the 2014 Oregon ballot. Jim Greig is one of the hardest working activists I have ever met, and the marijuana reform community will never be the same without him. I first met Jim Greig during the 2012 Election, during which he led the campaign against
