Letter from the Editor.

What kind of media outlet would the NY Cannabis Times be if we didn’t focus on what matters.

We don’t publish drug raids. Some of those arrest are being done to the first dispensaries (the OGs).

We don’t publish Cannabis tragedies we have plenty of the negatives in the Industry and plenty of outlets to share that kind of information. We share information that is pertinent to legalization, updates on harmful vapes and stigmas that hinder progress.

This hinders progress!

What Cannabis Media outlet would we be if we did not insist in a wake up call. If we did not insist that we need change. Praying is getting nowhere our gate leaders are toying with our planet. An organized #peaceful #protest in the name of our #planet right now! the planet is more important than your vote for 45 46 and what have you; Hence this apparently is a Truman show.

How the hell are you going to vote if we don’t have a planet?

#justdoit #riseup #change #earth #cannabiscommunity

We really have our priorities collectively distorted for lack of better term.

In the midst of the chaos

One kinetic evening CHHBA (pronounced chaba) was born. On an evening of fun and gala one of the writers of the NY Cannabis Times had a small incident in which a group of strangers came to the rescue twice.

First while in an award gathering an executive blatantly told her and the award winner to be quiet and later that evening with another shocker. To make a long story short. It’s not what happens its how you take it. It’s not an obstacle it’s an opportunity.

The writer heads back out the next day to find these people and thank them and to continue with the expo. She arrives dissapointed the event proved; just as she knew, that some corporate events are more dangerous than the ghetto she grew up in.

Meanwhback at the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo ranch. The strangers where in the midst of inquiring prices for a booth. The writer spots one of them grateful, she thanks them exchanges numbers, she is stopped. In comes the woman that did the intervening the night before.

Gracefully she states how all things are for a reason. This booth she was window shopping inquiring prices about quickly turned in to a contract.

It so happens that the CWCBEXPO has never had a Hispanic Cannabis and Hemp organization or corporation exhibiting at the expo in the 6 years that it has been at rhe Javitz center in NYC. Keyword Hispanic.

The writer throwing herself at her own dreams thinks the idea of being part of this, is historic and a privilege. The truth the writer is the owner of the NY Cannabis Times. The owner of the start up about to go digital. Not only did she become a co-founder of the Cannabis and Hemp Hispanic Buisness Alliance, The NY Cannabis Times is also a sponsor. Help us continue to be the voice of the Gotham city’s cannabis and hemp community in a larger scale and venue.

Dear Governor Cuomo, decriminalization isn’t enough.

Why #decriminalization won’t be enough.

First off Govenor Cuomo, you not only have to expunge everything since 1977, yes since 1977 you have been able to walk around with .22 grams cannabis In your pocket.
The issue was based on stop and frisk, it was suddenly in public view; when your officers (assuming the citizens of the city are all cut from the same cloth) removed the weed out of our pockets.
(No pun intended, to those that are of that Cloth, you were the first dispensaries). I salute you for holding it down while this clown plays the city like a poker game. Cuomo you have to delete all those DNA’s you took for weed #smoking infront of there homes #misdemeanors, delete all of it, give back all those surcharges and fines, delete, delete, delete.

We are fed up with your #lies delaying legalization to feed your DNA data bank with the lambs of the city getting paid off of federal funding; give to the communities hit hard with your operation open wide. This clown left NY wide open. My peoples if you didn’t know now you know. Give us what we deserve #equity #intheknow

On March 19, 2012, Governor Cuomo signed a controversial bill into law that states that any New Yorker that gets convicted of a crime, their DNA shall be taken.
The database will include everything from misdemeanors to felony convictions, yes, even minor convictions such as fare evasions, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct, even urinating in public.
DNA will be swabbed from a person’s cheek with a thirty dollar test, once you are proven guilty or if you plead guilty, ( which is usually the case to get shit over with) you get your license suspended, given community service, a fine of up to two-hundred dollars, a surcharge and to make matters worse, you will be asked to go drop off your personal and private genetic code at your neighborhood precinct.

Decriminalization isnt enough if you ask me.

When it comes to New York “The Home of The Haze” you would have to give back with an abundance of blind retribution. #socialequity #cannabiscommunity #nyccanbistimes #ny #nyc #Cuomo #giveback #expunge #cannabis #abc7ny

Advertising with The NY Cannabis Times.

Advertising with the NY Cannabis Times, is not difficult if you are from another state. Although that isn’t the case here for NY state Licensed dispensaries.

The advertising laws for cannabis industry businesses in NYC advertising laws are harsh this is why the NY Cannabis Times has decided to add several company logos for 90 days to our site.

We believe in giving back to our beloved cannabis community. We also believe in doing things the unconventional way; Advertising regulations are especially strict, as many marketing platforms restrict or outright ban cannabis advertisements due to the substance’s federal status. As the cannabis industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, it can feel overwhelming to keep up-to-date with the constantly-changing federal and state regulations below are the links of the winners, and above you have a link with the latest in NY state regulations.

The companies that won the the 90 day promo give away won in accordance with raising awareness that is all you have to do to be chosen. Raise awareness.

Lethal Bacteria “Mold” found in Cannabis.

What are you really lighting up? Cannabis isn’t hazardous to your health, but its contaminants are.

Twenty unidentified Northern California Cannabis Dispensaries contained bacterial and fungal pathogens, that may cause serious even fatal infections if smoked or vaped by people with impaired or compromised immune systems, according to a new study by UC Davis Scientists.
The tested cannabis – collected and cataloged, by Berkley’s Steep Hill Labs, with DNA extraction by MO BIO Labs in Carlsbad – contained a wide Diversity of microorganisms, many of which are implicated in serious lung infections, including Cryptococcus, Mucor, and Aspergillus fungi and Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria

Twenty-Eight States have decided to recreate or medicate, in one way or another The Infamous “Cannabis” Mary Jane Roses have gone mainstream, bringing with it fungus and allergies, I recall in the Nineties In My professional Endeavor, I had notice a Nice “Green Crack” that always arrived excessively moist and some were tainted, with fungi I would end up trying to return it. Ended up being bad business. Meanwhile back to the future, twenty dispensaries came up riding dirty (for lack of a better term).

This Investigation came about when a Cancer patient developed a rare and incurable fungal infection after using aerosolized marijuana, (inhaled as a mist). Such unusual lung infections are usually attributed to hospital or community exposure, he noted. As it does not occur to most patients. Several doctors concluded that the source could be marijuana.

There were several cancer patients, they were undergoing intensive chemotherapy and also a stem cell therapy, so their immune systems were weak. In one particular patient the fungal infection became lethal. Now what about the users whose immune systems are healthy? “There aren’t any specific recomendations” said Dr. George Thompson, associate professor of the clinical medicine at UC Davis who also contributed to the study.

“One particular young man had used recreational cannabis before his diagnosis with lukemia, and may be acquired the infection before he knew he was even sick”, said Dr Joseph Tuscano. “Any type of marijuana inhaled has its given risk inhaling provides direct portal of entry into the lungs where infection can easily take hold” he said.

“The only way to avoid microbes is to plant in a sterile environment, like a “clean room” “said biologist Anthony Torres of Steep Hill Labs. “With proper irrigation the plant can reduce Risk” he added. Microbial testing can detect the levels of contaminants, it is important for individuals who utilize cannabis to make sure it has been tested for pesticides, mold and mycotoxins and microbiological contaminants”. said Torres.

As a patient, it helps if the dispensary that you are in attendance at, would have these reports available, to practice transparency, I am a proud patient and I hope to find a test report in one of these dispensaries. I personally started smoking what I call Co2. I too have an experience with the fungi in the bud, I am actually allergic to some strains. As I stated earlier, Due to my bout with cannabis in the nineties. I suffer from allergies to 5 different types of mold. This has become a pressing Issue, with me I am in constant search of Good Bud it is Important that the market Standardize we need to know what we are getting, as much as I love my black Market dealer, Co2 saves the day plus it is more versatile. The downer of being in this Elite Group of Cannaseurs, is that it smells, everything that burns smells, its aroma is pleasant at times of stress, but the Vapor Pen, is so much fun I blaze every where with no smell, no skunk in the room. Saves the day in every occasion, although cannabis is more acceptable the smell still carries it’s stereotype.

In conclusion I may add that you examine your flower carefully. We need no casualties in the process of legalization.

Pregnancy & CBD.

There has not been much research done on pregnancy and CBD, but studies done with CBD show that it does assist with some of the many uncomfortable symptoms of pregnancy. There has always been a taboo towards women using cannabis, it still exist and women are still hiding their cannabis use. First and foremost Child protective services is a good reason to hide it, but there is always that faithfull urine test.  As Cannabis goes more and more mainstream more lab test more research is done. Although this too is a taboo research; How many women will really undergo cannabis testing to see if it harms the pregnancy, also keep in mind that due to the federal law making it federally illegal, lab testing for this must be done at a private scale if the bold dare to explore this taboo ridden self medication. In the meantime I can however that CBD the medical component in cannabis that relieves many ailments is good for the following.

 

 

The following symptoms can be made easier with CBD, and are proven to have zero side effects.

  • Backache/ Chronic Pain – Scientific Studies concluded CBD was effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects
  • Vomiting – CBD can assist the body by activating the neurotransmitter known as hydroxytryptamine. This is the neurotransmitter that assists the body in slowing down the expulsion reflexes which decreases the vomiting and nausea.
  • Post-Par-tum Depression – A common symptom of pregnancy is post-par-tum depression and anxiety, CBD induces rapid-acting antidepressant – like effects and also helps reduce anxiety.
  • Premature Contractions – According to “The Journal Of Reproduction and Fertility”, CBD, as well as THC can reduce uterine contractions.
  • Morning Sickness – The 1st trimester of a pregnancy is normally accompanied by morning sickness. Preliminary findings show that CBD activates 5-HT1A. This is the mono-amine neurotransmitter, also known as serotonin. When the neurotransmitter is activated , it results in decreasing nausea sensations. Researchers not that CBD reduces nausea and vomiting considerably.
  • Finally briefly after giving birth, cannabinoid CB1 receptor activation appears to play an essential role in the initiation of suckling, which is necessary for successful postnatal development and growth.

Cannabis “Made In Colombia”

Colombia has been known for its legendary black market; Therefore Colombia is now building a repertoire as a respected Cannabis Brand, participating in the growing number of countries and states with a legal medicinal cannabis program, allied by a supportive government.

Colombia with in the last few years, developed and achieved the most comprehensive and sophisticated medical cannabis framework in Latin America. Colombia has yet to be as advanced as Canada.

Cannabis & Cancer, To Be Or Not To Be.

 

In 1974 a group of scienists in the National Cancer Institute, published their findings that  Cannabinoids – delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), delta-8-THC, and cannabidiol (CBD)– were all able to suppress the growth of lewis lung adenocarcinoma cells in vitro and in mice. A body of pre-clinical evidence from spain and italy also supports the possibiliy of cannabinoids having anti cancer effects, but to date there has only been one human study. The human brain is enriched for the cannabinoid-1- receptor, it makes sense that gliomas are a particulaarly responsive to the antineoplastic effectts of cannabinoids.

This lead to other studies done in the Canary Islands, where scientists tested patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme, and the results were not very good.

So where is this idea and or notion that Cannabis cures cancer is coming from? it is a debate that has been boggling minds for 4 decades. we have examined and heard of numerous reports from several sources, one of them being a Canadian in 1974 heard that cannabis suppresses tumors, He was a boiler maintenance worker, 30 years later he had to deal with his own cancer experience. Three basal cell carcinomas, he treated them with a highly concentrated cannabis oil. When the lesions disappeared, the oil concentrate took on his name and before you know it the flood of theories and cures have invaded social media.

In 1993 the Siberian Ice Maiden was unearthed revealing a well preserved remains of a young woman that was alive over 2500, years ago.she had metastatic breastfeeding cancer and was found buried with a pouch of cannabis. In other words the young lady had been treating her symptoms with cannabis

A landmark study in 2010, found that earlier initiation of palliative care led to better outcomes for patients with aggressive non-small cell lung cancer.

In all this, yes further testing must be concluded and have, we also must remember the famous placebo effects, above all, educate your selves and others, which will be the basis of this News Magazine. All humans have body systems: cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, musculoskeletal, and reproductive homeostatically regulated by the Marijuana like compounds that we all produce, known as endocannabinoids.

In human terms…every time you get hungry ..it is because your brain made endocannabinoids that gives them the “munchies” “hunger” as if you were consuming cannabis. These facts weren’t created by weed advocates, but by years of science and evolution.

In the end better quality of life is what people are usually seeking, during diagnosis of the cancer. If you have a medicine, that can decrease pain, reduce vomiting and nausea, enhance appetite, improve sleep and mood. I would consider that to be, the cure to the worst of the evils,  if a patient’s disposition can be assisted, if there mood can be made to seem hopeful, not all is lost. In many cases that is when survival kicks in, and kicks ass.
