What If Cannabis Cured Cancer May 9, 2012 at 8:57 pm

“What if Cannabis Cured Cancer summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for prevention and treatment. If we need more evidence that our current policy on cannabis is counterproductive and foolish, here it is. An excellent film. ” -Andrew Weil, M .D

“What If Cannabis Cured Cancer brings to light a host of recent findings that have potentially game-changing implications for the future of marijuana as a medicine. A must-see film.” -Marijuana Policy Project, Washington, DC

What about you? What do you think about this word “cure”? Well, what impresses me is the number of people who claim to have done just that, eliminate cancer from their bodies by using cannabis oil as their treatment. Scientists are making it happen in the petri dish, so is it really so far fetched to believe that cancer killing with cannabis couldn’t also going on in the human body as well? What do you think?

Epsilon New World Apothecary Strain Project May 5, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Chef Dave is collecting strain data across California, and if you are growing the best, you may want to check out the Epsilon New World Apothecary website.  Here are the forward thinking words of the man himself, from Epsilon’s Facebook page: “Epsilon will be conducting private research on lineage purity in CA strains, as they relate to therapeutic benefit! WHY? 

Personally, we’ve seen a sharp decline in the overall therapeutic benefit of some truly amazing old school lineages, but the remarkable part is…we’ve seen a rise in average potency. After 6yrs of conducting out “LITE” research and clinical trials, we’ve discovered significant connections between common cultivation practices (both industrial and natural/organic) and the decline in therapeutic quality of the end product.

With that being said, Epsilon will be conducting a statewide search, for the best of the best. If you believe your cultivation practices produce the top therapeutic meds around, let us know. Please understand, this is NOT about big potency numbers (although we certainly enjoy R&D with those strains): this is about finding strains that have been cared for so naturally, that the therapeutic relief provided represents the lineage the way its MEANT to. 
STAY TUNED…MORE DETAILS TO COME in the following days. If you cannot wait, feel free to contact us for more info on this program. [epsilonapothecaries@yahoo.com, attention: Dave]

We’d like to hear from you.  What do you think of Chef Dave’s project?  Do you plan to participate by sending information about your medical marijuana strains?  How do you feel about the therapeutic benefits of high grade cannabis as it relates to growing practices?  Are you getting fantastic results that medical cannabis patients are raving about?  Are there a few strains that are working exceptionally well for you and your patients?  Give us a shout!  We’ll be sure to stay in touch with Dave and hope you do too.  Happy growing, my friends!

Method Seven Glasses For Cannabis Growers April 24, 2012 at 8:15 am

Looking for a sign of a mature cannabis industry?  Need sunglasses for your grow room?  Method Seven glasses were designed specifically for cannabis growers, and other indoor farmers who utilize High Pressure Sodium lights to grow their crop.  Stylish and functional, these glasses are going to fly off the shelf.  Happy growing!!

Check out what Method Seven has to say in their own words:  “Method Seven glass lenses were developed so people who work under High Pressure Sodium Lighting (HPS) can protect their eyes and see natural colors. HPS lights are the most efficient and powerful light sources on the market for growing indoor plants. However, because these lights make everything look yellow, it is nearly impossible to evaluate the well being of plants when viewed under this lighting. Using Method Seven lenses you can see the natural colors of plants being grown under HPS Lighting conditions. There are also benefits for glass blowers in some applications (when light intensity isn’t too high).”

Enjoy this informative video, and use the link below to grab your own pair of Method Seven glasses.  Overgrow the government!

Best Cannabis Growing Lights February 6, 2012 at 4:20 am

The Best Cannabis light is the sun. The second best cannabis lights may just be LED’s. Light Emitting Diodes are a cost effective way of lighting your marijuana grow room when considering the lifetime of the investment, cost savings from greater electricity efficiency, and cost savings from reduced heat in the cannabis growing space created by the lights, which means less required cooling. Air conditioning is extremely expensive for cannabis growers in warm climates like Florida, Georgia, California, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Texas.

Enjoy this video on LED’s for your ganja growing space, and let us know in the comments what types of lights you prefer. High pressure sodium? Metal Halide? Fluorescent? What works and why? Give us a shout!
