Cannabis Oil

Already known for potent shatters, Gold Drop now also offers disposable 510 thread vape pen cartridges that feature their golden extracts. These super-slim vape pens have been growing in popularity and most large extractors are getting in on the market.

For our review, we were given Gold Drop’s Trainwreck vape pen. A classic strain that doesn’t come around dispensary shelves enough, it is nice to see it here in this ultra-portable pen. I immediately found hits of Gold Drop’s vape to be easy and smooth, with no irritation in the throat. The vapor was sweet with hints of lemon and a woody pine. Although not dab sized, I was getting surprising clouds from Gold Drop’s oil.

As mentioned above, Trainwreck is one of those highs that just isn’t available as much as you’d like. Trainwreck carries a sativa lean thanks to Mexican and Thai landrace sativas. To balance these cerebral genetics, Trainwreck adds the ever popular weighty Afghani indica.

Far too many strains get labeled euphoric by lazy reviewers (I’m guilty myself). But there is an absolute euphoria to Trainwreck’s high. Happiness abounds, leading to a more open and engaged outlook toward the world. Creative thinking is enhanced, and a jaunt around the museum might be appropriate, as would a first date or an educational seminar.

I found this happy rush best used for working. Lame, I know. But as a writer, the tilted thought process opens avenues previously barred, allowing for a more open engagement with my topic. The high THC content makes Trainwreck effective for depression, while the Afghani grounds it for anti-pain and anxiety effects.  At high doses or during long sessions, it can begin to slow you down, and a delightfully spacey couch-lock might be inevitable.

Ganja Gold SFV OG Honey Oil Review – by OCWeedReview.Com

From the people who bring you your favorite pre-rolled tarantula joints comes a pure, versatile way to get your medical marijuana. Ganja Gold’s new honey oil is extracted using an FDA approved iso-hexane extraction, considered much safer than some other solvents. The oil is then put through an additional purification process to ensure you are getting the cleanest oil possible.  There are no additives and the oil is in no way adulterated to alter its consistency.

The golden oil comes in an easy to dispense syringe. The premarked syringe also helps with measuring out your doses when on a specific routine. Our review sample was lab tested at 60% THC.  While not on the extreme side in potency, it is much higher than typical flower and even some pre-filled vape pens.

Ganja Gold’s oil has already been decarboxylated, making it a versatile product that can fill several roles. You can use the oil to bake with, crafting personalized edibles to fit your needs. You can also add the oil to joints and blunts when you smoke to enhance your high, and the oil works well dripped onto an atomizer in your vape pen. However, we found the most use out of it dabbed on our rig.

Each syringe is filled with strain specific oils, which helps patients who have a proven favorite strain for their ailments. For our review, we tried Ganja Gold’s SFV OG. A phenotype of the classic OG Kush, the SFV OG cut is said to be a more upbeat, sativa like version of OG Kush’s endless relaxation. What you are left with then is a stress relieving strain that keeps you moving all day long, perfect for weekend days out enjoying the California sun.

— Patients who have to go out of state to get cannabis oil say they will face risks and hurdles even after medical marijuana becomes legal in Georgia on Thursday.

Gov. Nathan Deal will sign a law that makes it legal to possess up to 20 ounces of cannabis oil in Georgia. But patients who need the oil still have to go out of state to get it, because it remains illegal to produce at home.

That means families have to travel out-of-state to get the oil, and it is unclear whether the federal government will tolerate that.

The U.S. Justice Department has said it will not stand in the way of states that want to legalize marijuana as long as there are effective controls in place. However, marijuana remains illegal under federal law and in every state between Georgia and Colorado.

That, according to Rep. Allen Peake, means families that have to drive or fly to Colorado could risk penalties if the marijuana extract is found by a federal officer or airport security, or a law enforcement official from a state where marijuana is illegal.

Peake, a Macon Republican who sponsored the original legislation, said two Colorado companies have agreed to ship cannabis oil, with no more than 0.3 percent content of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive ingredient. But the lawmaker contends the THC level is not high enough to help many patients. Georgia’s new law allows up to 5 percent THC.

“The product is not FDA approved,” Peake said. “You’d have to fly to Colorado or risk crossing state lines. … Until we have a safe product produced and cultivated in Georgia, we’re going to face challenges.”

Some 14 families from Georgia have moved to Colorado to get medical marijuana for their children. Blaine Cloud, 42, of Atlanta, hasn’t moved his wife and children just yet. Daughter Alaina, 9, has seizures, and he hopes the low THC content cannabis oil will help her.

“But we will do what’s best for her,” he said. “If we have to travel out there, then that’s what we’ll do. It’s ludicrous to have meds legal in Colorado and California and soon in Georgia but not in the states you have to travel through to get back home. It may take a few people getting caught to show the injustice of the system.”

The family of 3-year-old Jagger Cotte, 3, moved from Atlanta to Denver so the boy could have access to cannabis oil. They want to return home to Georgia but are wary.

Tennessee – House committee approves bill to legalize cannabis oil

A bill to legalize cannabis oil in Tennessee for medical purposes passed its first legislative hurdle Tuesday, but it did so with a slight change.

The bill, from Rep. Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, passed the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee with a few amendments. It now requires someone who wants to use the oil to have a letter from a doctor saying the person who needs the oil suffers from seizures.

Several weeks ago, families pleaded with the committee to support the bill. The families have children who suffer from, at times, thousands of seizures every day.

The bill advances to the full House Criminal Committee. Committee Chairman William Lamberth, R-Cottontown, said during the subcommittee meeting that he supports the bill.

Cannabis oil to be sold in Missouri legally

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – For the first time in nearly 80 years cannabis will be grown legally in Missouri.

Last July Governor Nixon signed into law the Missouri Medical Marijuana bill and this week licenses were granted by the Missouri Department of Agriculture to two non profits to grow cannabis plants for hemp extract.

The hemp extract law is extremely narrow. It allows people with severe, persistent epileptic seizures to use oil derived from cannabis plants as a medical treatment.

In an application process that took months, two non profits were chosen to grow the hemp. They must follow strict guild lines set up by the Missouri Health and Agriculture Departments.

Production is expected to begin in the summer and should be available by the fall.

The Missouri Health Department estimates about a thousand people will apply to use the treatment.

Although the treatment hasn`t undergone many clinical trials, many parents testified at state house and senate hearings last year, saying that using CBD oil has dramatically reduced the amount of seizures their children have. Like this little girl Charlotte who went from dozens of seizures a day to one a week.

With other broader medical marijuana bills being introduced in Jefferson City, Show Me Cannabis believes this could change the stigma associated with marijuana.

At Beleaf company that will grown cannabis in St. Peter’s they expect to initially employ 15 to 18 people.

Both company’s production will be allowed to dispense the oil at 3 different locations. Beleaf says they will likely dispense the oil in St. Louis, Columbia and the Kansas City area out of doctor’s offices.
