Psychedelic Research Chemicals: What You Need to Know

Research chemicals, also known as designer drugs, synthetics, or RCs, are synthetic or semi-synthetic molecules that are explicitly designed to circumvent drug laws.  They are created to mimic the effects of the “parent drug” or otherwise prohibited substance. Most of these are functional analogs of the banned drug they are made to mimic, meaning they have similar physical, chemical, or pharmacological properties. These research chemicals can range from synthetic marijuana, hallucinogens, designer steroids, opiates, and amphetamines. Due to their constantly evolving nature, their potential dangers are unknown compared to the substances they intend to mimic.

Are Research Chemicals legal?

The primary purpose of creating these synthetic versions of prohibited drugs is to avoid breaking the law. In the United States, the DEA passed the Federal Analogue Act in 1986. This law treats any controlled substance analog, with the intention of human consumption, the same as a controlled substance classified as a Schedule I. By labeling their products as “Not for Human Consumption,” synthetic drug manufacturers can bypass this law, sell their research chemicals legally, and avoid legal liability. Most countries have similar loopholes creating space for the creation of new research chemicals. A well-known example of this is synthetic cathinones, or artificial stimulants, marketed as “bath salts” in convenience stores to be sold legally.

The United Kingdom attempted to ban research chemicals with the Psychoactive Substances Act in 2016, which prohibits the sale or production of any psychoactive substances or “legal highs.” Canada has a similar drug regulation law called the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

As soon as a synthetic drug is made illegal, another can be altered chemically to take its place. This circumstance creates a rapidly changing market with little time, or care, for efficacy or safety testing to take place. Unfortunately, unlike their parent drugs which have had years to be studied, these synthetic versions, although chemically similar, can vary widely in the drug’s effects. Even small chemical variations of known drugs can change how the body processes them. Due to the unpredictability of these substances, it can be hard to determine the dosage, side effects, and drug duration, making these substances potentially dangerous. In many instances, although they might be illegal, the parent drugs are safer to consume than the synthetic version.

Synthetic cannabinoids, such as Spice or K2, are a prime example of this. Many individuals that have used synthetic cannabinoids experience them to be much more potent than THC. They also had considerably more adverse effects such as anxiety, seizures, paranoia, heart palpitations, and aggression.

Many popular research chemicals are substances that mimic classic psychedelics like LSD and MDMA. Here, we’ll run through some well-known research chemicals, and we’ll tell you everything we know about their legality.

Disclaimer: Research chemicals are potentially illegal substances, and we do not encourage or condone the use of these substances where it is against the law. However, we accept that illegal drug use occurs, and believe that offering responsible harm reduction information is imperative to keeping people safe. For that reason, this guide is designed to ensure the safety of those who decide to use the substances. We do not encourage using these drugs outside of a legal or traditional context.

1P-LSD

1-propionyl-lysergic acid diethylamide, or 1P-LSD, is a popular alternative to LSD and is a common choice for microdosers who don’t want to break the law.

Its chemical structure is similar to that of LSD, with a small propionyl group added to the indole ring. According to various threads and forums online, the psychological effects of 1P-LSD are almost indistinguishable from LSD. There is not much scientific literature available on the actual pharmacological properties.

Evidence shows that 1P-LSD acts as a prodrug to LSD, and metabolizes as LSD in the body.

LEGALITY

Several countries have specifically banned 1P-LSD, including Germany, Sweden and Switzerland.

Other countries have banned analogs of LSD, which 1P-LSD falls under if marketed for human consumption. Examples are the United States Federal Analogue Act and Latvia’s amendment on tryptamine derivatives. However, we have heard of no cases of people prosecuted for 1P-LSD possession under these laws.

The United Kingdom’s Psychoactive Substances Act means that 1P-LSD is illegal to sell, although you can still possess it. There have been no cases of people charged for anything related to 1P-LSD.

1P-LSD is legal to purchase and possess in  Canada. If your country doesn’t have a specific regulation against 1P-LSD or LSD analogs, then it is probably legal to buy and possess – but always check your local laws. We don’t recommend illegal activities.

2C-B

2,5-dimethoxy-4-bromophenethylamine, or 2C-B, was designed by an American chemist named Alexander Shulgin in his research of phenethylamines. 2C-B shares structural similarities to mescaline (peyote) but possesses slightly different effects. It is the most popular of the 2C-x group.

Its effects include a body high and ’empathogenic’ properties similar to that of MDMA, combined with the psychedelic visuals of LSD.

2C-B is considered a milder psychedelic and is relatively short-lasting.



LEGALITY

Due to its inclusion in the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs in 2001, 2C-B is prohibited in most countries. It is considered a schedule I substance in the United States. In the United Kingdom, it is a Class A, meaning it is punishable under the most severe drug crime penalties.

AL-LAD

6-allyl-6-nor-lysergic acid diethylamide, or AL-LAD (also known as Aladdin), is an analog of LSD, with the difference being the use of allyl bromide as a reactant in synthesis.

Reports suggest that this chemical has similar psychological effects to LSD, although with a shorter duration. It’s reportedly less likely to provoke anxiety and people describe it as a less intense version of LSD; the ideal ‘starter psychedelic.’



LEGALITY

In the US, AL-LAD falls into the same legal grey area as 1P-LSD, where possession and supply are prosecuted under the Federal Analogue Act if marketed for human consumption.

In the UK, AL-LAD was added to the Misuse of Drugs Act and is considered a Schedule I drug.

AL-LAD is also illegal in Sweden, Switzerland and Latvia.

ALD-52

1-Acetyl-N, N-diethyllysergamide, or ALD-52, is a derivative of LSD, with the addition of an acetyl group to the indole ring.

The subjective psychological effects on humans are not well established, although they’ve been reported to be similar to those of LSD.



LEGALITY

In the US, ALD-52 falls into the same legal grey area as 1P-LSD, where possession and supply are regulated under the Federal Analogue Act.

In the UK, ALD-52 was added to the Misuse of Drugs Act and is considered a Schedule I drug.

ALD-52 is also illegal in Latvia.

ETH-LAD

6-Ethyl-6-nor-lysergic acid diethylamide, or ETH-LAD, is a derivative of LSD. The main difference between the compounds is an addition of an ethyl group in ETH-LAD.

The subjective effects of ETH-LAD are not well known, although user reports suggest that the effects are somewhat similar to those of LSD.



LEGALITY

In the US, ETH-LAD falls into the same legal grey area as 1P-LSD, where possession and supply are prosecuted under the Federal Analogue Act if marketed for human consumption.

In the UK, ETH-LAD was added to the Misuse of Drugs Act and is considered a Schedule I drug.

ETH-LAD is also illegal in Sweden, Switzerland, and Latvia.

LSZ

Lysergic acid 2,4-dimethylazetidide (also known as Lambda or LSZ) is an LSD derivative created by David Nichols and fellow researchers at Purdue University. It differs from LSD with the addition of an azetidine group.

Its psychological effects are reported to be similar to those of LSD. There is very little research or toxicity information available related to this research chemical, so it is recommended to start with small doses and use harm reduction practices with use.



LEGALITY

LSZ is illegal in Switzerland and Sweden.

It could fall under the US Federal Analogue Act, although there have been no prosecutions so far.

In the UK, LSZ was added to the Misuse of Drugs Act and is considered a Schedule I drug.

PRO-LAD

6-propyl-6-nor-lysergic acid diethylamide, or PRO-LAD, is an analog of LSD. Its main difference from LSD is the addition of a propyl group.

The psychological effects of PRO-LAD are relatively unknown, although users report a general similarity to the effects of LSD. It is described by Andrew Shulgin in his book TiHKAL, to be about as potent as LSD, with an adequate dose between 100 and 200 micrograms. As with other research chemical psychedelic lysergamides, very little data exists about the pharmacological properties and toxicity of PRO-LAD, as well as the history of human use.



LEGALITY

In the United States, PRO-LAD falls into the same legal grey area as 1P-LSD.

In the United Kingdom, PRO-LAD falls under the Misuse of Drugs Act and is considered a Class A drug.

PRO-LAD is also illegal in Sweden, Switzerland, and Latvia.

4-ACO-DMT

4-AcO-DMT is a semi-synthetic tryptamine with a similar molecular structure to psilocybin. Like psilocybin, 4-AcO-DMT is  a prodrug of psilocin, and as such appears to be metabolized by the body into psilocin. Some claim the effects are similar to psilocybin mushrooms, while others state it is closer to DMT.

4-AcO-DMT is different from other synthetic drugs because it wasn’t originally created to bypass drug laws. Albert Hofman first synthesized it at Sandoz laboratories in Switzerland, where he patented it in 1963. It wasn’t until the ban of many psychedelic substances that it sold alongside other “legal” research chemicals in the 1990s. Due to its origin, of the many “grey-market” research chemicals available, 4-AcO-DMT is probably among the safest.

There is no known toxicity or addictive potential of 4-AcO-DMT.



LEGALITY

4-AcO-DMT is illegal in the UK, Brazil, Italy, and Sweden.

In the US, 4-AcO-DMT may fall under the Federal Analogue Act, which would make its sale illegal.

In most other countries, it is legal to possess 4-AcO-DMT for personal use.

4-HO-MIPT

4-HO-MiPT is a designer psychedelic with structural similarities to psilocin. As such, it produces psychedelic effects that are virtually indistinguishable from psilocybin mushrooms.

There is no known toxicity or addictive potential of 4-HO-MiPT.



LEGALITY

4-HO-MiPT is illegal in Sweden and the UK.

In the US, 4-HO-MiPT could fall under the Federal Analogue Act, which would make its sale illegal.

Due to their ambiguous legality, many of these research chemicals are available for purchase online. These can be from online marketplaces, overseas pharmacies, or on the dark web. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have aided in the anonymity of these sales online. Depending on the type of synthetic drug, some sell in convenience stores and head shops, under the labeling of ‘Not for human consumption.’

The use of research chemicals ultimately comes down to a personal decision. Due to the lack of information available on these drugs, it can be harder to educate oneself on what to expect. As with any psychedelic, it is highly recommended to have a sitter present and to be mindful of set and setting.

Arguably, research chemicals exist to explore the psychedelic potential of different substances. The reason they are popular is that they circumvent drug laws and can be financially lucrative for illicit manufacturers. Prohibition is the primary source of fuel for these substances.

Historically, prohibition pushes people to find more dangerous ways of exercising their cognitive freedom. With the legalization of psychedelics, these drugs could be thoroughly tested, creating access to safer substances.   Read More

2F-Viminol is new legal alternative to Viminol. Viminol is an opioid analgesic developed by a team at the drug company Zambon in the 1960s. Viminol is based on the a-pyrryl-2-aminoethanol structure, unlike any other class of opioids. Viminol has both antitussive (cough suppressing) and analgesic (pain reducing) effects. Viminol has additional effects similar to other opioids including sedation and euphoria. [Citation needed] It has six different stereoisomers which have varying properties. Four are https://primenaturalpharme.com/buy-psychedelics-online/inactive, but the 1S- (R, R) -disecbutyl isomer is a μ-opioid full agonist around 5.5 times more potent than morphine and the 1S- (S, S) -disecbutyl isomer is an antagonist. Since there is a mixture of isomers, the overall effect is a mixed agonist antagonist.

USER EXPERIENCE

FIRST USE 

This is not a fun chemical to insufflate. I dosed 10mg intranasally and immediately began to retch. My very first thought as soon as I completed the act was “this tastes/smells like gasoline.” Honestly, immediately after consuming it this way, I was instantaneously met with the thought or flavor of gasoline. However, the taste does not linger long. There is moderate discomfort when consuming 2-methyl-AP-237 intranasally — the sting doesn’t last too long eithe though.

2-Methyl-AP-237

Buy 2-Methyl-AP-237 online

5 minutes after insufflating 10mg, I began to notice subtle effects. Kind of a “glossy” feeling in the eyes. Slight muscle relaxation in the back of the neck and shoulders. Not overwhelming at this dosage, but I feel as if there is something going on.

I’ll continue to report back as I conduct more experiments.

SECOND USE –

This stuff is definitely potent.

After that 10mg intranasal dose, I decided to ingest ~23mg orally in a gel capsule.

Its been about an hour and a half since I’ve ingested the ~23 mg capsule and its hitting me hard. Keep in mind, I have absolutely no tolerance whatsoever.

My body is relaxed, my thoughts are slowed significantly. My attention to detail and awareness of things around me is definitely hindered. Oddly enough, there is a deafening effect going on at the moment… Everything sounds hollow and quiet. Slightly worrisome. Is this a normal side effect from opioid use? opioid

THIRD EXPERIENCE

vet supply

It has now been 6 hours since I ingested the capsule and I am almost back to baseline. The deafening effect I mentioned in my second edit dissipated slowly over the course of 2 hours or so. Odd. I also felt dizzy while I was peaking (about 2.5 hrs after ingesting ~23mg capsule), and pretty light-headed. All the while, I felt very calm and content. Additionally, I worked out a bit harder today than most other days — yet it still feels like it’s been a very relaxing day today. This is a very interesting compound.

FINAL EXPERIENCE

It has been two days since the experience above. Today I ingested a capsule containing 25mg of the 2-methyl-AP-237, and it is definitely active at this dosage. It kicks in very hard all at once and quickly diminishes into a mellow sedation that lasts easily 4-5 hours. This is with no tolerance to chemicals of this class. Buy 2-Methyl-AP-237 online

The best place to order Harvoni online

The best place to order Harvoni online

Original medication produced by the USA (Gilead) for highly effective (98% cure) antiviral therapy of .

buy-harvoni

One pills contains two active components Sofosbuvir + Ladipasvir. In one package, 28 pills.

On this site you will find a web link to the online pharmacy! There you can order (buy) the drug Harvoni without a prescription. On the over-the-counter!

Harvoni is an innovative drug for the treatment of the chronic form of hepatitis C genotype 1. It does not require a combination with ribavirin and interferon. He is the third approved cure for hepatitis C of this kind. Harvoni greatly simplifies the treatment of the disease and gives patients the opportunity to choose the appropriate course of therapy.

Hepatitis C is a serious disease that leads to irreversible changes in the liver – there is cirrhosis, liver failure, infections in the abdominal cavity develop, cancer is diagnosed. With the advent of a new drug, it became easier to fight the disease, and unpleasant reactions in patients began to occur less frequently.

The active substances of the drug – sophosbuvir and lepidasvir, entering the body, block the enzymes that cause the reproduction and development of the hepatitis C virus.

hepatitis-C

The effectiveness of the drug is proved by clinical trials! They were attended by more than 1500 people, who were randomly divided into two groups. In each fell patients, the first time treated, people with cirrhosis and those who had previous treatment with other drugs did not give a positive result.

One group within 12 weeks received Harvoni with ribavirin, the other – just Harvoni. The goal was to buy – to achieve a stable virologic response after the end of the course of treatment.

The first trial involved patients who had not previously been treated. After 8 weeks, 95% of them received a stable virologic response, which indicates a complete recovery. After 12 weeks, positive results were recorded in 97% of patients. In 99% of patients with cirrhosis, a persistent virologic response was obtained after 12 weeks of treatment. In the third case, the effect was achieved in the same period of time in 95% of patients with and without cirrhosis.
Thus, it has been established that Harvoni is good at curing genotype 1 hepatitis C without the use of ribavirin.

Indications for use:

The drug Harvoni is intended for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C of genotype 1, in patients with cirrhosis and without it. Harvoni is effective for patients who are being treated for the first time and for patients with ineffective experience of treating hepatitis C with interferon and ribavirin or if there is intolerance to these medications.

Mode of application:

Harvoni is taken one tablet a day with meals. The pill is not recommended to chew or grind, it is better to swallow it and drink a little water. The medicine gives the best effect, if it is taken every day at the same time.

If, for some reason, the drug is missed, take the medicine as soon as you remember it or skip the dose and take it at the usual time. The use of a double dose is not allowed !!!

Take Harvoni even if you feel good or, conversely, there are minor side effects in the form of headaches, fatigue. For patients diagnosed with hepatitis C genotype, 1 course of treatment is 12 weeks. Patients with compensated cirrhosis should take the drug for 24 weeks. The same applies to patients undergoing re-treatment.

The most accurate recommendations for dosage and duration of treatment can be obtained from the attending physician, who prescribes the medicine based on the individual characteristics of the patient.

If, after the end of the 12-week course of therapy with the drug, there is no sustained virologic effect, the patient does not feel better, the treatment should be discontinued, since further treatment with Harvoni will not work. If the remedy is ineffective, you should choose and order another medicine for treatment. Perhaps you are more suitable price (cost).

Side effects:

Reception Harvoni (Harvoni) can cause a number of side effects:

  • Headache;
  • General fatigue.

In rare cases, severe allergic reactions.

At the first reception of a preparation it is necessary to listen attentively to the sensations. If there is severe itching, swelling of the face, tongue, lips, severe shortness of breath, therapy should be urgently interrupted and no longer treated with this medication.

Most often after the beginning of the course of taking Harvoni, the patient feels mild ailments in the form of headaches, lethargy, so it makes sense to bring the treatment to an end in order to achieve full recovery. If the drug is used in combination with ribavirin, the number of side effects increases.

The drug is safe enough for patients with cirrhosis, but treatment should be prescribed by a doctor and treated with caution. In general, the drug is transferred easily and gives a greater chance of recovery.

Contraindications:

Contraindications to the use of the drug Harvoni are: an allergic reaction to one of the components of the drug, pregnancy and the period of breastfeeding, children under 18 years.

It is forbidden to take another medication containing somosbuvir – an overdose, an increase in side effects.

Do not take drugs with elvitegravir, tenofovir, emtricitabine.

Treatment of hepatitis C Harvoni

REVIEWS

James

The virus of hepatitis C was received a year ago. Treatment is known to be long-term. I try to use all new products. This medicine was discussed with the attending physician. There are contraindications, but there are many positive things. One of the pluses is the price.

I took the drug for 12 weeks, very scrupulously – I started the alarm clock to take medicine at the exact same time. Recently handed over analyzes – there is a positive dynamics. I will continue taking the drug for another 12 weeks.

Matthew

No one needs to explain what grief comes to a family when one of its members is given a terrible diagnosis – hepatitis C.

His brother discovered hepatitis C, blood tests, damage to the body was great, the virus put the liver, and the liver undermined immunity, according to the results of the virus analysis there were 8 million pieces.

But the doctor reassured that the diagnosis of Hepatitis C is not yet a sentence, the body is young and the chance is not bad, I prescribed a lot of drugs, I honestly never saw such prices for medicines, and I had to treat at least six months.

Our family is not rich, even on credit, we could not scrape together such a sum. Appealed to another doctor, he advised Generic Harvoni, a drug with the same spectrum of action, but the price was lower at times, this amount we mastered.

My brother took this drug for 7 months, pobochki, of course, were in the form of nausea and dizziness, weakness, but the brother’s reception continued, after 4 weeks it became more and more normal, and after 16 weeks, and the disease began to gradually recede, the analysis showed that the amount of the virus was reduced to 600 units.
After a full course of treatment, the virus was not found in the body. Now it’s been 6 months since receiving the last Harvoney tablet, my brother recently did an analysis – the disease did not return. The doctor said that with a probability of 90%, it can be argued that this recovery, I hope it will.

Health to you!

Lillian

When she found out that I had hepatitis C, she was in prostate for two months, then she regained control of herself, started antiviral therapy. I decided to start with generics – the effect, as they say, is the same, and the cost is several times lower. Acquired Indian “Harvoni” as the most suitable for my genotype. Three months of treatment lasted, and regular tests were given, at week 10 the load was already 500 units. And after 12 weeks came the results, which I waited with a sinking heart. And, here is happiness – negative, the virus is not found! Now I am in remission, I regularly take tests.

Daniel

Firstly, it is Harvoni generic, the brand value reaches several thousand per tablet. So it’s a generic. But pharmacologically this is an exact copy of the Harvoni. And the effect is the same, so I do not see any reason to overpay for the brand. Secondly, it is much more convenient in taking many similar drugs, because it contains in its composition sophosbuvir with lepidavir. Prior to this, I, for example, planned to take Sowaldi, in which only sophosbuvir, eventually had to buy more lepidavir, and find him yet, usually he is in the complex. And in general, do not forget about the admission at a certain time, two different tablets would have to be, and then just once a day, drink one tablet of water.

During the treatment, planned blood tests were carried out: general, detailed and biochemistry. The degree of viral load decreased, especially in liver enzymes, at the end of the planned treatment period, 12 weeks, hepatitis was not detected in the assays under the stamp.

The peculiarities of treatment can be attributed only to the refusal of a number of medicines, including natural origin, for example, St. John’s wort is generally prohibited, because it blocks the action of the drug, worsening the general condition.

THE 5 BEST CANNABIS STRAINS AGAINST DEPRESSION

THE 5 BEST CANNABIS STRAINS AGAINST DEPRESSION

There is growing evidence that cannabis can help offer a respite from the symptoms of depression, so here are our top 5 strains to lend a hand.

Cannabis Strains Against Depression

It’s no secret that smoking cannabis can be a very uplifting and rewarding experience, and it is harnessed everyday by thousands of people for just that – helping to relieve the symptoms of depression. It is something that has been acknowledged by both anecdotal reports and science, and research institutions are even looking to how it can be harnessed as a prescribed drug.

However, although cannabis certainly has potential to help, it is important to understand that it is not a cure for depression, but rather, a temporary relief. Beating depression is not just about feeling energized and active, if it was, curing it would be as simple as drinking an energy drink. It is about relieving a weary mind, soothing it, and allowing it to relax.

Sativa strains are stereotypically seen as the go to strains for this; but for many, a pure sativa can actually be too much. For this reason, a sativa dominant hybrid, that is both activating and a bit sedating at the same time, tends to be the most preferred choice. Also, generally speaking, you want to stay away from pure indicas, as couch-lock can be pretty counter-productive where depression is involved.

At the end of the day, everyone is different, and will need to find their own balance, but the following 5 strains are all great places to start.

5 BEST CANNABIS STRAINS AGAINST DEPRESSION

1. BLUE DREAM (HUMBOLDT SEEDS)

Blue Dream - Humboldt Seeds

Blue Dream is a high yielding sativa dominant hybrid that both uplifts the mind whilst easing tension, anxiety, and stress. It is the child Blueberry x Haze, and produces some of the tastiest, fruitiest bud around. It is a fast grower, taking roughly 65-70 days to flower, and produces yields that should keep you stocked up for quite a while to come.

2. AK-47 (SERIOUS SEEDS)

AK47 - Serious Seeds

Dubbed the “one-hit wonder”, AK-47 is a strain of cannabis that can take even the most season of smokers by surprise. It is an extremely potent sativa dominant hybrid that has won various awards for its quality (it is one of the most decorated strains of all time!). With a flowering time of 53-63 days, AK-47 is a strain with both fast turnaround, and high that relaxes both body and mind, relieving anxiety, and whisking you away far up into the clouds.

3. AMNESIA HAZE (ROYAL QUEEN SEEDS)

Amnesia Haze - Royal Queen Seeds

A coffeeshop favorite, Amnesia Haze is well known for its potent potential to relax the mind (the name kind of gives it away!). Expect high yields of some tasty top shelf stuff; with a flowering time 63-70 days, this bud turn your consciousness off, giving your mind an opportunity to recuperate.RELATED STORYTHE TOP 10 MEDICAL CANNABIS STRAINS

If you’re lucky enough to live in an area where medical marijuana is legal, you’re likely familiar with the abundance of cannabis strains out there.

4. JACK HERER (GREENHOUSE SEEDS)

Jack Herer - Greenhouse Seeds

Another classic, the Jack Herer strain of cannabis was named after one of the most prominent and influential cannabis activists of our time. It is a mix of Haze x Red Skunk, and has a flowering time of roughly 56 days. As a testament to its genetics, Jack Herer has become an extremely sought after strain the world over – having won at least 12 awards. Much like the other sativa dominant strains of this list, it is both activating and relaxing at the same time, affecting both mind and body.

5. GIRL SCOUT COOKIES (CALI CONNECTION)

Girl Scout Cookies - Cali Connection

Last but not least, Girl Scout Cookies is a West Coast legend shrouded in mystery. What we do know is that this beauty can really blow your troubles out of the water, easing tension, relaxing the mind, and melting away anxiety. She is well worth a go, especially when you consider she flowers in as little as 55-63 days.

There is no one-stop, easy cure to depression, but hopefully the above strains can offer some degree of comfort in the fight against it.

Cannabis And The American Economy

CANNABIS AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY

Americans share an expansive border with Canada, where cannabis has been legalized on a federal level. If the United States followed suit, there would be substantial savings for its law enforcement. In 2013, the ACLU estimated the annual cost of enforcing federal laws against cannabis to be approximately $3.6 billion. There has already been a lot of investment into the cannabis industry, even without the approval of the federal government and major financial institutions. The industry has pressed on, conducting transactions mostly through hard cash, or sometimes industry-specific cryptocurrency.

Arcview predicts North American cannabis sales to surpass $20 billion by 2021, if not sooner. The grey area of federal prohibition in the US casts uncertainty on the industry. Yet, there is confidence in the industry’s benefits on the ground. In 2015 alone, Colorado collected more than $135 million in tax revenue from the cannabis industry. The industry itself has knock-on effects, aside from creating thousands of jobs. Residents of Denver who lived near a cannabis dispensary found their local average home value raised by $27,000.

Arcview Market Research reported $6.7 billion in North American cannabis sales for 2016. This was before lucrative markets in Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts, and California were established. California’s reforms are particularly significant, not just for the state’s long-standing cannabis culture, but for the size of its economy, rivalling that of most G20 nations. According to a study from ICF International, Californian cannabis could could exceed $15 billion in sales revenue and $3 billion in tax revenue.

WORKING IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

With so much growth in the industry, it may seem like the perfect time to get a job in cannabis. California serves as an interesting case though, with farmers now facing more regulations and taxes than they did under California’s previous laws. While regulations are generally there to protect consumers and improve product quality, Californian cultivators are now earning less. Steve Schain of the Hoban Law Group recently told The Guardian, “Presently, no one in legalized marijuana is getting rich”.

Established names in pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and alcohol are financing huge farms of hundreds of thousands of feet to compete against small farmers. If such cannabis floods the market, the average price should drop over time. This outlook is concerning for some cannabis advocates, especially if it means the corporatisation and gentrification of the cannabis industry pushes out smaller craft cultivators. Activists in different states are looking for ways to stop the spread of corporate monopolies. The business world presses on. Businesses of all sizes are getting into a crowded game, so they’re now looking for advantageous resources in the staff they hire.

“Budtender” is the term that has arisen for those who sell cannabis in dispensaries. Advising customers according to their needs does not just require skills in customer service and salesmanship; the in-depth knowledge of a strain connoisseur will make your job application stand out. There is demand for more budtenders in the industry. Forbes reports that American budtenders are paid between $12–16 per hour. That’s not bad, as long as neither the cost of living nor the minimum wage go up. Mike Adams at Forbes argues at least one of those definitely will at some point soon, putting those wages in some perspective.

DIVERSITY OF THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

CANNABIS AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY

But then, budtender is just one role in an industry requiring skilled workers in science, agriculture, marketing, PR, and so much more. Forbes highlights a report revealing different pay grades in the cannabis industry. Highest earners include Director of Cultivation (up to $250,000 per year), Director of Extraction (up to $191,000 per year), and Outside Sales Representative (up to $150,000 per year). Taking the industry as a whole, the average hourly wage in Colorado is around $23, according to the Denver Business Journal. The Sacramento Business Journal concluded the average hourly wage in California’s cannabis industry is closer to $25.

Entering the cannabis industry requires you to bring your skills to the game. With so many different aspects to the industry, you can find a role that appeals to your strengths. Cultivation, production, quality control, financial services, copywriting, and so many other areas need passionate workers with focus and drive. The novelty of legal cannabis will attract a lot of interest, so the business will be competitive—especially if North America is the first domino that spreads legalization throughout the world. Then there will be opportunities for many countries who are likely to legalize in the 2020s. Who knows what we’ll be looking back on at the end of the next decade!

THE BEST AMERICAN STRAINS

So, we have discussed the influence of cannabis on the american economy. Let’s see how it affected the development of american strains!

Over the past decade, some incredible new cannabis strains from american origin have been introduced such as the Bruce Banner, Gorilla Glue and, the latest addition: the amazing Monster Zkittlez. Next to that, the United States brought us some true iconic strains. We have listed the top 10 classic cannabis strains from the USA, so take a look if you are interested in American Strains!

Is CBD Safe for Kids?

Is CBD Safe for Kids?

Can you give CBD to kids and what are the proper doses?


Is It Safe To Give Your Kids CBD?

can kids have cbd

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been gaining steam in the United States, with more people starting to incorporate it into their lifestyle each day.

It isn’t surprising, considering that this powerful cannabinoid has potent healing properties for adults. People use CBD as a supplement for overall wellness, but it can also help treat a great deal of debilitating conditions.

But parents might be wondering if the health benefits of CBD can also be applied to kids. The answer is yes: only if you are giving your kids hemp-derived CBD.

CBD can not only help adults with anxiety and epilepsy, but it can also help kids as well. We also know that CBD is safe for adults to take without worry of side effects, and the same applies for kids. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) says that there are no adverse health risks found in kid who use CBD.

There are many reputable companies online that sell CBD products in various forms, which can be used to administer on children. These include oils, tinctures, sprays, edibles, capsules, balms, and many more. Parents just need to take the extra precaution in researching which companies you’re buying from, as well as the product. It’s important that you are giving your child hemp-derived CBD and not cannabis-derived CBD; the best way to be sure is to look up laboratory tests or talk to a trusted doctor who knows their way around CBD.

Having said that, here are some common conditions for which you can give your child CBD:

  • Anxiety: More and more people are getting affected by anxiety, and it isn’t just adults. Kids are affected by anxiety too. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 5% of kids between 3 to 17 years of age have anxiety and depression.

Studies show that anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications are among the most addictive out there, and they have horrific side effects. These are even worse when you give it to children who are more vulnerable because they’re still growing. Just don’t. Give your kids CBD instead to help them deal with mental conditions.

  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD): ADD and ADHD are typically treated using Adderall and Ritalin. Again, these have serious side effects that can even have long-lasting implications on your children.

The medical community believes that attention-deficit disorders are usually triggered by a lack of dopamine production in the brain. Instead of turning to pharmaceuticals, you can give your child some CBD because it works with the serotonin receptors in the brain to reduce anxiety while addressing the symptoms of attention-deficit disorders.

  • Sleep disorder: In some cases, your kid isn’t faking being unable to fall asleep. There could be a real, underlying sleep disorder there. It can be painful for parents to see kids struggling with anything including falling asleep because the lack of proper rest can seriously impede your child’s physical and cognitive development.

Pediatric sleep disorders vary based on severity and the good news is that many of them can easily be treated. CBD oil is known for its relaxing properties; studies also show that CBD oil in particular is helpful for treating anxiety and insomnia among children. 

  • Epilepsy: Perhaps the most widely documented condition of CBD’s efficacy on kids is epilepsy. Studies have been done all around the world, and they all come back with the same results: CBD is safe and effective for treating pediatric epilepsy. For many parents, it’s the only thing that’s worked for their children, making CBD a truly life-saving medication that gives kids the ability to enjoy life once again.

In fact, there has even been a documented case of an infant who has successfully been treated with CBD oil. Amylea Nunez, who was born in December 2015, had a rare case of epilepsy that triggered frequent seizures throughout the day, sometimes preventing her from waking up. She was given CBD oil treatment when she was just 2 months old, and by the time she turned half a year old, she showed significant improvements in her condition.

There you have it! Parents, if there’s one thing you can do as early as possible, it’s to never (or at least stop) make your kids walk down the path of Big Pharma to treat their conditions. The answer lies in all-natural, safe, and non-addictive CBD.

My Kid Ate My Weed

My Kid Ate My Weed


Raw Cannabis Digestion May Be The Next Super Food


My Kid Ate My Weed

Nothing makes you feel like a shitty human being more than walking into the living room to find your 1 year old daughter scooting around with your drugs hanging from her mouth.

Before you call social services on me, at least let me explain.

When I say drugs, I mean raw cannabis. A little bud must have fallen out of my sack, onto the ground and found its way into her snaggle toothed mouth whilst she was crawling around during play time.

My first reaction when I found her chowing down on my stash was to rush over, snatch it from her mouth and then viciously berate myself over how low I’ve come in life…. So that’s what I did.

I beat myself up. I called myself a drug addict. I wondered how I could be so careless as to put my own child in harms way.

Why though? If I believe in the healing properties of marijuana with such resolve as I claim, did I have a reason to hold myself in such contempt? 

If we think alike, when you hear the word drug, the first image that pops into your head is a needle. Not a clean one either. I’m talking about a scabby, overused heroin needle. If we are going to evaluate my reaction based upon the view of the popular majority, it must be understood that a filthy needle, (or similar alternative ), is exactly the representative that appears before most people’s minds when the word “drug” is presented because the representation of a needle reflects the mainstream view of marijuana demonization. The needle represents an abysmal level of addiction that a drug user has stooped to and the inferred apparition is a diluted belief that any person, who uses any drug, in any form or by any means, has a serious problem and plays Russian Roulette daily with a loaded gun of severe health penalties.

KIDS IN HOSPITAL

Children shouldn’t play with guns, right?

No they shouldn’t; and while all these thoughts passed through me in the blink of an eye, if you’re reading this article chances are fair that you don’t need me to inform you about the prejudicial victimization that has been shown by government institutions, wealthy corporations and religious organizations worldwide, bringing the planet’s most useful herb into disrepute. We’ve been deceived for most of our lives, having been warned repeatedly of the illusory dangers of cannabis. Decades of lies cannot be forgotten overnight can they?

They cannot, but the best way to dispel the darkness is to introduce it to the light, so step into the light with me. See, what I found after my stash was happened upon by my child flies in the face of literally everything I have ever been told about cannabis and the way it interacts with the human body.

What did I find then?

Raw weed. If your kids accidentally eat it, should you call the poison control center?

The simple answer to this question is no, but be that as it may, in light of the above understanding of the word “drug” you may desire more than a one word answer, (a lifetime of disinformation and all that), so sit tight- the following information may change your entire view on one of the world’s most dangerously hyped illicit substances.

The first positive about consuming raw cannabis, especially when viewed in the context of accidental consumption by children, is that it cannot get you high. Since heat is necessary to convert the THC-A, (THC Acid), in raw cannabis into THC, its psychoactive component, ingesting marijuana through methods such as juicing provides a way of obtaining an overload of the plant’s benefits, without getting stoned.

“That’s positive; no high?” You ask.

Sure it is. That’s not only great news for kids who eat their parents weed, but for athletes, businessmen and parents on the go.

JUICING CANNABIS

Juicing raw cannabis is actually a popular method for many people who desire to take advantage of the plant in its raw form daily. Juicing it enables the user to take advantage of the medical properties of the most useful cannabinoids found therein, without exceeding the tolerable limit. The plants most powerful medicinal property, CBD, is made more readily available to your body through this raw consumption method by giving the chemical a significant advantage as a medicine; offering all of the pluses delivered at higher doses with minimal side effects. Basically what I am getting at is this: you don’t have to be sick to reap the benefits of raw cannais and you are able to administer it at far higher doses than with edibles or oils.

Essential Amino Acids, anti-microbial and anti-oxidizing… these may all be alien words associated with cannabis, but believe it or not, there are moves being made in the medical community that are advocating for this association to be recognized worldwide. Along with the trio of fancy words above, there’s a whole congregation of trusted names that add to the credibility of cannabis as a nutritional powerhouse.

Flavonoids- a plant metabolite attributed to an array of health benefits joins rockstar couple Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that are also introduced with the consumption of raw cannabis.

STRAWBERRY COUCH STRAIN

Medical professionals like Dr. William Courtney recommend the use of raw cannabis as a nutritional supplement to be taken in the interest of general good health just as one might take a vitamin to try ensure that all that their body’s internal systems are running smoothly. 

“Five years ago,” he explains in an article detailing the power of raw cannabis, “I wouldn’t prescribe cannabis for follow on to medical school because I was such a skeptic and now it’s really clear to me that cannabis is a vegetable. It’s not psychoactive until humans alter it, so the whole psychoactive thing is a human aspect of the plant and has nothing to do with 34 million years of evolution that plant has… it’s a dietary essential so I never even refer to it as medicine anymore.”

If you’re like me you just reread that quote a couple of times over. The implications of all that cannabis can do for us as a continually evolving species is astounding and advancements like the ones Dr. Courtney and his team are responsible for present us with an exciting picture of the role cannabis is to play in all of our futures.

On a much smaller scale however, in the role of continually evolving parenthood, there is no reason to beat yourself up if your kid eats your weed. On the contrary,  you should probably be patting yourself on the back for promoting good health…but as much as I hate to cut this conversation short, I’ve been sitting here writing while my daughter plays and now lunchtime is upon us… has anyone seen my bag of weed?

Stay responsible folks.

Peace,

Medications and Treatment Approaches for Management of Anxiety

Medications and Treatment Approaches for Management of Anxiety

How to Relax With and Without Medications

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

More in Generalized Anxiety Disorder

If you have persistent anxiety that is impacting your life on a recurrent basis, your symptoms may be caused by an anxiety disorder. Often, anxiety disorders are treatable with medication, counseling, and therapy techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy. There are also a number of lifestyle methods that you can use to reduce your anxiety level.

Anti-Anxiety Medications

Anti-anxiety medications have physical effects on the brain and the body, which can help reduce the symptoms of anxiety, such as worry, fear, and panic attacks. These medications must be prescribed by a doctor, often by a psychiatrist.

Anti-anxiety medications are not cures for anxiety disorders, but they can help manage some of the symptoms.

There are a number of different anti-anxiety medications available, and the right medication for you depends on your type of anxiety disorder and whether you have other health problems or take other medications.

Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines such as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin(clonazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) are sometimes used to treat anxiety for a short-term period. They are used for generalized anxiety disorder and may be used as a second-line treatment for panic disorder and social anxiety disorder, with antidepressants being the front-line choices. Benzodiazepines induce muscle relaxation and reduce other symptoms related to anxiety. These medications are not typically used long-term because they can cause addiction.

Beta-Blockers

Beta blockers are used to control heart disease. They help reduce your heart rate and blood pressure by blocking the effects of epinephrine, a stimulant that your body naturally produces. Beta-blockers can help control trembling, sweating, and other physical symptoms of anxiety. They may be prescribed for the short term when used for anxiety. Sectral (acebutolol), Tenormin (atenolol), Inderal LA (propranolol), are a few beta-blockers. Common side effects include weight gain, fatigue, and cold hands and feet. Beta-blockers are not recommended if you have asthma or diabetes.

Buspirone

BuSpar (buspirone) may be prescribed for long-term treatment of chronic anxiety, and it’s recognized as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder. It increases the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps improve mood and reduce anxiety. Buspar takes one to two weeks for initial effects to be felt and can take four to six weeks for the full effect. Because of this, it is not considered effective for the treatment of anxiety attacks, and it must be taken consistently in order to have an effect on symptoms. It is less sedating than many of the other commonly used anti-anxiety medications, and it is non-addictive and has a low risk of overdose. Possible side effects include dizziness, headache, nervousness, and trouble sleeping.

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs)

Often used as a first-line treatment for anxiety disorders, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) include medications like Paxil (paroxetine), Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline) and Lexapro (escitalopram). SSRIs are considered antidepressants and they increase the amount of serotonin in the brain, which helps improve mood. Side effects include headaches, dry mouth, drowsiness, sexual dysfunction, diminished sex drive, and weight gain. As with many antidepressants, they can increase the risk of suicidal ideation (thinking about or planning suicide), particularly in children, teenagers, and young adults.

Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs)

Another common category of medications used for anxiety are the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), which are antidepressants, and include medications like Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (duloxetine), and Pristiq (desvenlafaxine). SNRIs increase the levels of serotonin and norepinephrine to help boost mood and are similar in effectiveness to SSRIs. Side effects are similar to those of SSRIs.

Tricyclic Antidepressants

Tricyclic anti depressants are also used in treating anxiety. Common medications in this class are Tofranil (imipramine), Elavil (amitriptyline), Pamelor (nortriptyline) and Anafranil (clomipramine). Side effects may include constipation, dry mouth, blurry vision, a decrease in blood pressure when standing, and urinary retention (decreased ability to urinate).

Use as Directed

All of the anti-anxiety medications have side effects, and they can have serious adverse events if they are overused or used incorrectly. Many of them can affect your heart rate, blood pressure, and level of alertness. They may cause loss of consciousness or even death when used in excessive amounts, in combination with other medications that interact with the central nervous system, or with alcohol or recreational drugs. Many of the antidepressants that are used for anxiety can also induce suicidal ideation.

Anti-Anxiety Lifestyle Strategies

A mental health professional can help you identify the specific coping strategy and lifestyle changes that can help you manage your symptoms. Some examples of strategies a professional may encourage you to try may include:

  • Exercising
  • Meditation
  • Spiritual practice
  • Dancing
  • Going for a walk
  • Writing and journaling
  • Sitting down for a few minutes
  • Watching the sunset or sunrise
  • Spending time with a friend
  • Practicing gratitude
  • Focusing on the positive aspects of your life
  • Planning a day to do nothing and following through with it
  • Taking a nap
  • Indulging in your favorite food
  • Doing a crossword puzzle or sudoku
  • Watching a comedy or funny online video
  • Spending time with your dog or cat
  • Planning a vacation and visualizing the setting
  • Massaging your temples for a few minutes
  • Chewing gum
  • Stretching out
  • Writing a poem or a song
  • Coloring, painting, or drawing
  • Cleaning
  • Cooking

A Word From Verywell

If you have anxiety, medication can help because the medications used for anxiety alter the chemicals in your body and brain, reducing symptoms, and often helping you calm down and focus on other things. Other approaches to symptom relief, such as counseling and developing relaxation techniques, can also reduce your anxiety. Often, a combination of approaches is needed to alleviate your symptoms.
