Case to Get Medical Marijuana for PTSD Heads to Court in Colorado

Denver, CO –  The law firm, Hoban & Feola’s Denver team filed a historic case in the Colorado Court of Appeals on behalf of Plaintiffs who wish to obtain medical cannabis recommendations for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is not currently recognized as a qualifying condition for which medical cannabis can be prescribed in Colorado. The firm is set to bring national attention with this case, similar to the 2009 Centennial case which led to creation of the commercial cannabis market in Colorado and beyond. Similarly, the ruling in this current PTSD case could set a national precedent, affecting the entire industry.

Marijuana Product Review - The Dr. Dabber Boost

I was in Las Vegas in November for all of the industry shows that took place. I saw a lot of products, and heard a lot of ideas, but the one that I was the most impressed with was the Dr. Dabber Boost electronic dab rig. I was consuming various forms of marijuana with friends while I was there, and one of the guys in the session whips out a black case that says ‘Boost’ on the lid. He asked if I had ever seen or used one before, and I admitted that I hadn’t. The guy showing me the

Study: Vaporizers Deliver Safe And Reliable Doses Of Cannabinoids

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director Electronically driven vaporizers deliver cannabinoids in a relatively safe and reliable manner, according to data published in the journal PLOS ONE. Swiss investigators evaluated the ability of various types of vaporizer technologies to safely and effectively release THC and CBD (cannabidiol) in vapor. Researchers reported that electronically driven devices, which allow for precise temperature control, were able to provide for relatively safe and uniform dosing. By contrast, gas-powered devices performed in a more unreliable manner and “cannot be recommended for therapeutic purposes.” Authors concluded, “[T]he four electrically-driven and temperature-controlled vaporizers investigated in this study

Marijuana Product Review - Haze V3.0 Vaporizer

I recently got my hands on a Haze V3.0 Vaporizer, and it is amazing. The first thing that I noticed about the vaporizer was the way it looked. The design doesn’t look like any other handheld vaporizer that I’ve ever seen. The one I got is black, and it reminds me a lot of a smoking device that Batman would use. The design definitely doesn’t look like others on the market which makes it stand out, but it still looks discrete because people don’t know what it is. I have shown mine to several veteran consumers and not one of
