AVOID Synthetic Marijuana—It Can Be Deadly!

What is Synthetic Cannabis and why is it dangerous?

Essentially, the products are a blend of herbs and spices laced with synthetic cannabis-like chemicals meant to mimic the highs marijuana produces. The main attractions of synthetic marijuana are that it is cheaper than recreational marijuana; it is more widely available in smoke shops, online, gas stations, and in paraphernalia shops; and it typically does not show up on a drug test.

The drugs originally come from (India and the Middle East, but mainly) China, and are in powder form. They come in little pots, in smaller quantities, and (are) very potent,” said Carreno.

Synthetic marijuana is killing people, AVOID Synthetic Marijuana—It Can Be Deadly!

According to a recent Time Magazine feature, synthetic marijuana is the second most popular drug among teens and young adults, behind pot itself. Most people don’t realize how dangerous synthetic marijuana can be. The synthetic powder is mixed in a lab and shipped to the US, where retailers spray it onto a leaf—often an herb or a spice—that can be smoked, just like pot. It binds to cannabis receptors in your body up to 1,000 times more strongly than real marijuana, as well as producing gripping effects on serotonin and other receptors in your brain.

You can’t overdose on real pot, but you CAN overdose on synthetic version

You can’t overdose on real pot, but you CAN overdose on synthetic versions—and it doesn’t take very much. Synthetic marijuana is killing people, why? What is this stuff? It was declared illegal in July 2012 after President Barack Obama signed legislation that banned five of the chemicals commonly used to make synthetic marijuana and bath salts, another dangerous drug, but manufacturers have evaded the ban by using different chemicals in their mixture, which adds to the dangers inherent in the drug: From one manufacturer to the next, and from week to week, doctors and drug-enforcement officials aren’t sure what’s in the stuff. An issue with synthetic is its potency, which is huge. Its potency can be up to one hundred or more times greater than THC, that is how much drug it takes to produce an effect. So it takes much less of them to produce maximal effects in the brain. So these things have higher efficacy and potency…they are very different from THC and not surprising that their use may result in development of life-threatening adverse effects.

An additional concern is that synthetic marijuana use can’t be detected by urine tests, partly because the chemicals used in the drug change regularly. “You’re hearing some pretty bad things with the synthetic cannabinoids — part of that has to do with the potency,” U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Barbara Carreno “It can be 100 times more potent than marijuana.”. Another concern, it’s growing in popularity: One in every nine high school seniors admitted to having used synthetic marijuana in 2011.

Synthetic Marijuana Is Hazardous, Toxic And Deadly

So called synthetic marijuana or Spice is a designer drug in which plant material is sprayed with synthetic cannabinoids. These products are often marketed as “smoke-able herbal incense”, “exotic herbal incense”, “legal highs” or as alternatives to marijuana, smoked or eaten by users to produce a ‘high’ despite the fact that they are often labelled as “not for human consumption”. The drug mimic’s the effects of THC and can be far more potent. The drugs are known as synthetic cannabinoids because they affect the same brain receptors as the active ingredient in marijuana. The drugs are many times more powerful than natural cannabis and can result in symptoms that range from restlessness, agitation, dizziness, anxiety/panic attacks, tachycardia, hypokalemia, chest pain, memory loss, acute psychosis, seizures, rapid or irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, shortness of breath, chest pain, changes in blood sugar and electrolyte levels, nausea/vomiting, convulsions and even death. There has been a recent increase in people winding up in hospital after smoking the drugs. And it is addictable. “It is like Russian roulette to use these drugs, we don’t know a darn thing about them for real. It shouldn’t be out there. For the DEA, tasked with controlling hundreds of subtly different chemical compounds, it’s an uphill battle. “

New derivatives, new concoctions are being developed as we speak. We’re just trying to keep up,

Most of the chemicals were found to cause serious side-effects

Synthetic cannabinoids were developed by scientists who wanted to study how they affect brain function and whether they could offer potential relief for chronic pain. Most of the chemicals were found to cause serious side-effects. Since then, there’s been little research on the toxicity of synthetic cannabinoids or their long-term effects on physical and mental health. It is illegal to market this so-called cannabis alternative but until recently it was sold openly in some convenience stores, specialty tobacco stores and head shops where it’s often promoted as a natural or herbal product. While recent police raids may have driven sales in Canada underground, the synthetic cannabinoids are widely available on the internet.

Synthetic cannabinoids will lead to serious adverse health effects

Consumers don’t know what chemical compounds are in them, so toxicity and health effects vary widely. They are rarely labelled with an accurate ingredient list and using them may lead to serious adverse health effects, There has been a recent increase in people winding up in hospital,
Health officials are mulling over how to best deal with the surge in hospitalizations, calls to poison control centers, spike in overdoses and incidents of violent crime.and deaths as a result of people using this crap.
Examples of products that should be avoided include: “IZMS”, “Herbal Highs”, “Spice”, “Yucatan Fire”, “Earth Impact”, “London Underground”, “Crazy Clown”, ‘Black Mamba’, and ‘K2’. Do not use products labelled as “synthetic marijuana”, “smokeable herbal incense” or “legal high”. The synthetic marijuana products sell for between $30 and $40 per 3-gram bag.

Despite the evident dangers, synthetic marijuana is becoming more and more popular among teens and young adults.The problem is growing so fast that a major medical journal issued a warning about about t he substance, often referred to as K2 or Spice.
New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan declared a state of emergency on recently in response to 44 reported overdoses linked to people smoking or ingesting “Smacked,” a synthetic marijuana-like product sold in convenience stores as potpourri.

My friends, this stuff will eventually fuck you up. Stick with what is God given, God approved,  and natural. Order your Bud here, you will have no problems with potency, McChronalds sells top shelf bud, stay healthy my friends.

Marijuana Now tax deductible

Medical marijuana is now tax deductible in Canada.

More big news on the medical marijuana front, now the Canada Revenue Agency — the nation’s tax collector — says it’s cool with medical marijuana users claiming the costs of their weed as a medical expense, so long as they buy their pot from a licensed producer. Medical marijuana patients in Canada now have a reason to celebrate. Have times changed.

Medical marijuana is now on  the CRA’s list of eligible medical expenses.

Medical marijuana is now on  the CRA’s list of eligible medical expenses. Yes, Canadians, you can expense your legal medical marijuana if you’re a valid patient purchasing products from a licensed producer under Health Canada’s guidelines. The Canada Revenue Agency has confirmed that medical cannabis purchased under prescription is an allowable medical expense at tax time. The CRA website includes medical marijuana and marijuana seeds on its list of eligible medical expenses. http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns300-350/330/llwxpns-eng.html#marihuana

The Canadian Cannabis Industry

The news, according to wawa-news.com, came in an August 24 letter from the CRA to the Canadian Medical Cannabis Industry Association, which has been lobbying the CRA to clarify the issue. http://www.cmcia.ca/ , Specifically, the letter notes “that while amendments to the Income Tax Act have yet to be introduced to recognize the MMPR, “[T]he CRA will not disallow eligible medical expenses claimed for the purchase of medical marihuana allowable under these new regulations”.

Write off medical marijuana, CRA says

This is an important step in acknowledging the legitimacy of the way patients use medical marijuana, to help manage the symptoms of a range of health conditions. It’s very good that the CRA is recognizing medical marijuana as eligible since it is clearly a physician prescribed remedy. “This is an important step,  because it allows patients to write off a major component of their health-care costs,” CMCIA spokesperson Cam Battletold CBC News. Neil Belot, Executive Director of the CMCIA. “We have been working with the CRA and the Department of Finance for several months to clarify this issue, and we’re extremely pleased that cannabis regulated by Health Canada has been recognized as an allowable tax expense. It’s very good news, and will help make the use of cannabis as medicine more accessible and affordable for patients.”

Medical marijuana could be covered by insurance, experts say

Canadians who have been prescribed medical marijuana could one day see their insurance company footing the bill, experts predict, following the introduction of new Health Canada rules that allow for the sale of cannabis oils.

Cannabis Oil now legal

Health Canada announced revamped medical marijuana regulations earlier this month after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that users of the drug should be permitted to consume it in other forms, such as oils and edibles, rather than having to smoke dried buds. Health Canada has been clarifying its rules for licensed medical marijuana producers to allow them to produce and sell cannabis oil.

Health Minister Rona Ambrose had initially said she was outraged by the Supreme Court of Canada decision, which lets patients consume marijuana, not just smoke it. The government had tried to limit medical pot use to dried marijuana only.

But the ruling left a grey area with producers being limited under the law to selling dried forms of marijuana even though patients were allowed to consume other forms.

In a recent statement, Health Canada said the new interpretation was effective immediately and intended to eliminate uncertainty.

Producers are not allowed to sell plant material that could be used to grow pot, the statement said. It also reiterated that compassion clubs and dispensaries are illegal.

Health Canada ‘Dragged kicking and screaming’ to court

Ambrose said her department was meeting “the requirements dictated by the Supreme Court of Canada.”

“Health Canada is doing so in a manner that respects the rule of law, protects public health and public safety, and reflects the serious health risks with marijuana, especially for youth,” Ambrose said in a statement released by her office.

Ambrose’s statement makes three separate references to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who has called for marijuana to be legalized and regulated. The Conservatives frequently attack Trudeau’s position on marijuana, alleging he would make it easier for teens to get pot.

Kirk Tousaw, the lawyer who represented the respondent in the Supreme Court case, said he was surprised Health Canada is taking small steps to progress, but noted the federal department had to be “dragged kicking and screaming” by the court.

Edibles are illegal in Canada and maybe for good reason.

Tousaw said he’s concerned the licensed producers still aren’t allowed to sell products other than oil and fresh bud and leaves — for example, it remains illegal for them to sell brownies, tea or other products that are now legal for medical marijuana patients to consume. Vancouver Coastal Health’s chief medical officer is reiterating her support for a ban on edible marijuana baked goods and other treats as city council finalize regulations on Vancouver’s illegal pot dispensaries. Dr. Patricia Daly says she supports the city’s proposed regulation. however she wants a ban on edibles that are packaged as candies or baked goods because they pose a health danger to youth. “There’s no other medicine — including medicine used for people in intractable pain or cancer — that companies are allowed to format in the form of candy or baked goods that might appeal to children,” Daly, who supports legalizing and strictly regulating marijuana, says recent evidence from the United States noted that edible pot was responsible for at least 2,000 reports of poisoning of children under the age of six. Edible pot can cause serious effects in children, like coma, seizures, and even stop their breathing, said Daly. “That’s occurring even in states that require childproof containers and labeling on their products, so that’s clearly not sufficient,” she said.

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association, however, is calling for the regulation of edible pot, saying the proper packaging and labeling would make the products as unattractive and inaccessible to children as possible.

How to Write off Medical Marijuana

Canadians legalized medical marijuana in 2000 via the Marijuana Medical Access Program (MMAP). In order to legally deduct medical marijuana as an expense on their taxes, Canadian residents must do two things: have a physician’s authorization and have purchased their medicine from a licensed producer. The agency says a taxpayer can write off “the amount paid to Health Canada or a designated producer for a person authorized to possess or use the drug for medical purposes under the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations or exempt under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.” The CRA states that, “the amount paid to Health Canada or a designated producer for a person authorized to possess or use the drug for medical purposes under the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations or exempt under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act” will qualify. Medical expenses for a taxpayer, spouse or common-law partner, and his or her dependent children can be declared on Line 330 of the T1 tax return. A CMCIA spokesperson told CBC the average per-patient cost of the drug is about $7.60 a day, or $2,774 per year, depending on dosage and type. For 2014, CRA’s threshold for allowable medical expense deduction is 3% of a client’s net income or $2,171, whichever is less.

Kush And Roger

Kush And Roger

Kush refers to a subset of strains of indica cannabis. The name “Kush” originates from the Hindu-Kush mountains where it was cultivated for thousands of years located in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan and is the westernmost extension of the Himalayan Mountain Range, perfect for growing Indica.

The area has long been known for its ongoing conflicts as well as its history of marijuana and hashish production. The fertile valleys and hillsides of the Hindu Kush have, for centuries, produced the world’s finest hash. Years of natural and human selection make the most resinous plants have resulted in short, stocky bushes covered with huge, shiny trichomes.

Hindu Kush

The passes across the Hindu Kush have been of great military significance for centuries, providing access to the northern plains of India, once used by Alexander the Great, Timur, and others in their invasions of India. The name ‘Hindu Kush’ itself tells us about the fate of the Hindu’s in this area from about the 13th to 15th century, unlike the Jewish holocaust, the exact toll of the Hindu genocide suggested by the name Hindu Kush is not available. However the number is easily likely to be in millions, millions were slaughtered or died of exposure when travelling into slavehood through the Hindu Best Kush CanadaKush by Muslum conquerers partly to teach a lesson to the future Hindu generations of India and also because of religious prejudice and many Hindu slaves died when they were transported through the Hindu Kush to central Asia because of the harsh climate. ‘Hindu Kush’ in Persian means ‘Hindu Slaughter’ opr ‘Hindu Killer’ means literally ‘Kills the Hindu’. It is significant that it is one of the only place names on earth that reminds us not of the victory of the winners but rather the slaughter of the losers. However, Indians in general, and Hindus in particular are completely oblivious to this tragic genocide because the Government of India does not teach them about Hindu Kush. The Indian government does not want the true history of the Hindu Muslim conflicts during the medieval ages to be taught in schools. Often the official governmental historians brush aside questions such as those that Hindu Kush raises. They argue that the British version is the product of their ‘divide and rule’ policy’ hence their version is not necessarily true. India’s memory is short and partially blames Britain because of resentment over past British colonial rule over them – The British who happened to be the ones who eventually saved them from Muslim rule. Hindus have suffered a terrible Holocaust, probably without parallel in human history, probably, one of the biggest genocides history. There has practically been no serious research on the subject or mention in history books.

How Did Kush Get To Canada?

In the 1960s and early ’70s, bold and brave travelers on the “Hippie Trail”, part of which runs through the Hindu Kush, returned to the US, Canada and Europe with primo seeds and began growing Kush strains in earnest. The indica-dominant genetics, the shortened typical flowering times, allowed Kush to be grown all the way up to Alaska. Because of Kush, “homegrown” was at that time a point of pride, as opposed to now, as a term of derision.


Kush has become a genetic anchor for many of the strains we know today … much like Skunk #1 was for 2 decades and still has a strong influence today. Kush has also taken on another meaning. The word “Kush” seems to have lost some of its meaning – but those who know can immediately discern that particular lemon-fuel odor and telltale tiny nuggets as the real deal.
In some places, slang for good weed is simply called Kush, used to suggest that the weed being sold is highly potent, rather than to indicate any particular genetic heritage. Here in Ontario, all the dealers tell you it is Kush, when in fact it is obviously not.

Medical Marijuana Kush

Many medical-marijuana dispensaries specialize in carrying as many varieties of Kush as they can get their hands on, and there are literally hundreds to chose from. The Kush strain is popular in the medical marijuana industry and has been used as a patented treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) under the name ‘Sativex’. It’s good for pain, spasms, insomnia, anxiety, appetite, inflammation, glaucoma, relaxing, creativity, nausea, depression, sleep apnea, sex drive, Epilepsy, overactive bladders as well as other benefits, overall a great strain for anything. They say this strain helps “Kush” the pain.
We haven’t had anyone jump way out ahead of the pack in a while in sheer, mind numbing stupidity (at least no one new), so let me introduce you to U.S. Representative Mark Kirk, In the USA, Strains with “Kush” in their name boast such a reputation for potency that Republican Congressman Mark Kirk of Illinois introduced a bill to increase penalties for the distribution of “Kush.” he was heavily influenced by the reputation of Kush at that time, the incredibly ignorant Mark Kirk (R-IL) introduced a bill in 2009 to dramatically increase prison sentences for marijuana trafficking offenses if the pot in question had THC levels over 15%, with penalties of up to 25 years in prison for a 1st-time offense. Warning that “kush super-marijuana” was invading the country, a country with a prison population at an embarrassing 25% of the world’s total (that’s the whole world),”Kush is a modified marijuana that delivers up to ten times the THC level of the marijuana we may have seen in the 1960s and 70s,” What a Nut, it just goes to show you that any fool can be a politician. all you have to do is take bribes and pass foolish laws in the land of the prisons.

This Indica Will Put You In-Da-Couch

This is the bud known for its “couch-lock” – a perfect strain for an evening nightcap, but also one capable of changing all your plans when puffed at mid-day. The intense, extremely long-lasting stone aren’t soon forgotten. At marijuana competitions, Many Kush varieties have won prizes for their breeders at our annual pot-tasting festival in Amsterdam each November. From the original Skunks of the 1980s to the Kushage, Vanilla and Kaia Kush of the current era, the strain’s potency and flavor are undeniable. While Haze varieties dominate the sativa category, Kushes traditionally prevail among the indicas. Kush strains have also provided the genetic basis for many perennial winners that don’t have the word “Kush” in their names, such as White Widow, Sensi Star and AK-47. And regarding Hash, much of the best hashish in Holland continues to be made from these Kush strains. The High Times Cannabis Cup is the world’s foremost cannabis festival and they have 6 events each year around the US and in Amsterdamn. These events allows judges from around the world to sample and vote for their favorite marijuana varieties, indica cannabis products that contain the genetic traces of Kush are the predominant winners’.

What OG Kush Can Do For You!

OG Kush is known to be fairly difficult to grow; producing low yields if not grown correctly. This also makes it a risky investment for growers, which tends to drive down the supply. The debate over the genetics of OG Kush and what exactly ‘OG’ stands for has been a heated topic of discussion for many years. Here is what we do know. Despite that fact, OG Kush is highly sought out for because of its unique taste, scent, look, feel and high, which is definitely not for the feint of heart. The compact buds are almost neon green in color, with heavy crystallization that will leave your fingers extremely sticky after handling. When grown properly, the strain is a delicacy that deserves a spot on every marijuana enthusiast’s wish list. In late 93’ a grower in northern California got his hands on the famous Chemdawg strain. He goes on to say (summarized from Seedfinder), that this was shared with a fellow grower from Sunset Beach who claimed he had a male that was the, “secret ingredient,” for breeding. The male was a cross of Lemon Thai and an Old World Paki Kush (possibly where the ‘Kush’ came from), and was an ideal mix for the Chemdawg. The buds became wildly popular in Los Angeles by ’95.
The urban myth is that the original grower of the new strain was handed a bowl when his friend mentioned that the Kush he was about to smoke was “so good because it was mountain grown.” Upon further inspection, the grower detected the recognizable scent of his own crop and corrected the man by saying, “This Kush isn’t mountain grown, its Ocean Grown Kush, Bro!” From that point on the name Ocean Grown Kush caught on and was shortened to OG Kush over time. Some theries, Some people believe that the ‘OG’ is a memorial to OverGrown.com, which was the world’s largest cannabis grow site until 2006 when they were shut down by the Canadian police for, “illegally distributing seeds.” another theory, Others believe that ‘OG’ stands for, “Original Gangster,” which was a strain from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. It is thought that this is the plant that produced the OG’s that became so famous in southern California, putting the area on the medical marijuana map. The specific genetics of OG Kush will most likely forever remain a mystery, and honestly this is all right with us. The mysterious reputation makes it even more desirable; like a forbidden fruit.

Southern California Kush

Nowhere are Kush strains more prevalent than in Southern California. Many medical-marijuana dispensaries specialize in carrying as many varieties of Kush as they can get their hands on, and there are hundreds to chose from. Pure indicas tend to knock people out, but Sensi’s famous Hindu Kush has a more desirable quality to it, as well as a rich, hashy smoke that enlightens the senses. This strain has a super-short flowering time, coupled with the ablity to start filling out right away for big, fast yields. Great for beginners and experts alike, Hindu Kush is known for its pungent notes of sweetness followed by hints of sandalwood, which distinguish it from the Kush we know and love in the USA.

Pure 100% Indica

Pure Kush is a OG Kush phenotype that medical marijuana patients should know about. Medically used for pain therapy, this Indica provides instant and full-bodied pain relief. Pure Kush is a truly pretty lady. The flowering time indoors is 9 weeks, producing up to 900 grams per square meter (under 1000 Watt of light per square meter). It’s a good plant for SCRoG (growing through a net). Outdoors it finishes by end September, and can produce up to 900 grams per plant (with very large plants). It has a very nutty, sweet flavor, and a stoned couch-locking effect. It is a good plant for beginners. Thd positive effects are a good Body Buzz, Calming, Cerebral Creative Euphoria.Pridominant
relieved symptons are anxiety, depression, pain relief, and sleepiness, but there are many other symptons relieved.

Pure Kush Is Great For Sleep

This strains main purposes seem to be rest and relaxation inducement. One pressing of Pure Kush will last well into the 1 hour range before it’s effects begin to dull. You can expect to get 3 good pressings from one whipful without much drop off between pressings making Pure Kush a wise economic choice. Kush goes a long way, so do not be concerned about its premium price, it is well worth it. Pure Kush is an indica w/ prominent levels of CBD giving the Pure Kush marijuana user with a sedated body-type “stone”. Pure Kush is an effectual treatment for the symptoms of medical conditions like anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, muscle spasms and tremors. While the presence of CBD in indica’s like this Pure Kush may moderate the “euphoric” effects of THC, these two components do however work in conjunction to treat chronic pain effectively. CBD in indica’s like this Pure Kush also have anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-oxidant, sedative, as well as immunomodulatory properties; and it also works well to relieve convulsions, anxiety, inflammation, and nausea.
