[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • This means, according to some of the most respected experts in the field, that cannabis is absolutely a psychedelic substanceand thats a good thing.
  • LSD pioneer Timothy Leary believed cannabis to be a psychedelic.

  • She wrote a book on MDMA and another on cannabis, and is serving as the medical monitor for the research sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) studying whether marijuana can be a balm for military veterans struggling with PTSD.
  • Cannabiss value for someone struggling with conditions like PTSD, Holland told Business Insider, derives from its ability to bring about dehabituation, the process of looking at something with fresh eyes.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • According to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health, cannabis use among Colorado teenagers aged 12 to 17 is only slightly higher than nine percent.
  • The Reason For Reefer Reduction – – One of the authors of Colorados Amendment 64, Brian Vicente, attributes the drop in teen cannabis use to the role that the state now has in the business.
  • Implications For Other States – So if teen drug use is down in Colorado since weed legalization, what does this mean for other states?
  • Final Hit:Teen Drug Use Is Down In Colorado Since Weed Legalization – We cant ignore or dismiss these results.
  • While it may be jumping the gun to conclude that teen drug use will absolutely and without a shadow of a doubt decrease simply by legalizing cannabis, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health is a good starting point for the information and data we need.

See You In Court

  • While I do not believe I will ever see products like T-shirts manufactured solely out of hemp made in North America (mainly because foreign manufacturing costs are lower), that does not mean we should not be actively exploring the economic value of diversified hemp products.
  • Plus, the equipment needed to harvest and process 1,800 acres of hemp can cost millions, and this is the companys fourth year in operation.The crew was already hard at work when I arrived at the farm, and large equipment was already rolling.
