REVIEW The SLX v2.0 Herb Grinder



The Connoisseur’s Herb Grinder

     At first glance, the SLX v2.0 is a good looking machine. Completely coated with a ceramic, non-stick and 100% FDA certified coating, this grinder is as slick as it looks.

    Because of the never stick coating, there will be no more cross threading or jammed up sets of teeth stuck together with the results of your last dozen grinds.

    One of the best features is the grind basket. Unlike most other grinders, there is no need to unscrew a kief collector before collecting your ground herbs. You need only lift out the basket that fits neatly on top of the kief collector.

    I refer to the SLX v2.0 as a “Connoisseur’s Grinder” because of it’s non-stick abilities. With the SLX v2.0 you can grind up a new strain or an old favorite while not picking up any results of your last grind as well as not leaving anything more than some kief behind.

    Just try the SLX v2.0 once and you will see what I am talking about. Or take my word for it and you will need only too pick between two sizes and seven colors.

    The SLX v2.0 is on my “best of” list and I know with our friends at SLX backing up their grinders with their “We’ll Make It Right” promise, the SLX v2.0 will remain on the list.

MMJ vs Atherosclerosis and Heart Disease


Atherosclerosis is a complex inflammatory disease that plays a significant role in the development of heart disease and stroke. In the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death and claims more lives than cancer. We typically think heart disease and stroke can hit without warning; actually, these diseases develop gradually over time. 

Atherosclerosis is characterized by progressive deposition of atherosclerotic plaques (immune cells laden with oxidized low-density lipoproteins/Ox-LDL) followed by the narrowing of blood vessels (arteries) and impaired blood supply to vital organs, such as the heart and brain. Subsequently, inflammation in the intimal regions of the arteries occurs as a result of uncontrolled immunological injury and formation of free radicals. Sedentary lifestyle and bad dietary habits can worsen the disease. The existing treatments are moderately effective, albeit with side effects. 

The discovery of endocannabinoids and their functional roles in the brain and other parts of the body has had tremendous implications in medical science. Cannabinoid receptors are widely present all over the cardiovascular system and that’s the reason researchers believe the endocannabinoid system might play a key role in the regulation of blood circulation and cardiac functions. 

Expression of CB2 receptors in the cardiovascular system, such as myocardial cells, blood vessels and smooth muscle cells, are now confirmed. 

Studies have reported variations in the expression of CB2 receptors in carotid artery plaques among stroke and asymptomatic patients. Therefore, CB2 receptor expression and signaling appears to be a protective response against acute and chronic pathological events. Additionally, the protective role of CB2 receptors has been documented in various events of atherosclerosis, including restenosis, myocardial ischemia and cerebral ischemia or reperfusion injury

Studies are now zeroing in on biologically active molecules that influence the cannabinoid system, particularly phytocannabinoids. These studies preferentially employed cannabidiol (CBD) as it lacks psychoactive effects.  

Due to ongoing research studies, the therapeutic role of cannabinoids in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, is now recognized.

THREE A LIGHT The Ultimate MMJ Growers Guide


Author Joshua Haupt embarked on his journey to innovative cultivator at the age of 15. With nothing more than a few seeds found in a baggie of schwag, he planted his hopes in the family garden and watched them grow. Once his cannabis was large enough to be a recognizable plant Haupt’s secret was out. His dad pleasantly shrugged his shoulders and said, “well we can’t kill it now” and it’s been game on around growing ever since.

After years of perfecting his craft in the mountains near Breckenridge, CO., with a great deal of help from local growers and friends along the way, Haupt began to understand and identify the key steps to achieving bigger and better yields. As Haupt was making a serious name for himself as an excellent cultivator and growing consultant, he reached a philosophical crossroad. Many people in his community urged him to guard these secrets. Still, others told him he would be foolish not to capitalize on the opportunity to share what he knows with the global cannabis community. In the end, a battle with epilepsy led Haupt to the decision to share his secrets with the world. Haupt has been seizure-free for 4 years without the use of any traditional pharmaceutical medications; he has much more success using cannabis and exercise to treat his epilepsy. He sleeps easy knowing the secrets he is sharing will lead to larger quantities of higher quality cannabis for all.

“Three A Light” is the definitive book for the indoor cannabis cultivator; it will change the way you think about growing marijuana indoors. As most smokers know, there are some key differences between growing cannabis indoors and outdoors. While outdoor grows are traditionally associated with higher yields, the controlled conditions of indoor grows are ideal for producing the highest quality cannabis. “Three A Light” bridges the gap between outdoor and indoor by sharing the secrets of achieving the greatest yield without sacrificing any quality. While there’s no shortage of how to grow marijuana books on the market today, no other book can provide such extensive information in an easy to understand step-by-step guide like “Three A Light.” 

Accompanied by lavish illustrations and stunning photography, “Three A Light” covers the Nine Vital Components of growing marijuana indoors in order to produce the highest average yield per light.

MMJ vs Heroin and Opiate Addiction



Can you treat a drug addiction with another drug? Many medical cannabis patients in recovery, as well as their caregivers, think it’s possible. 

Studies have already shown a decrease in opioid overdose deaths in states where medical cannabis has been legalized. On a more personal level, it’s showing unprecedented potential as an alternative treatment option for addiction to opioids, like heroin and prescription pain pills.

Maine’s patients and caregivers want the state to seriously consider the use of cannabis as a treatment for opiate addiction. Along with many other states seeing epidemic levels of opiate abuse and overdose deaths, Maine is searching for viable alternatives to incarceration, and is willing to hear out the cannabis community if it means a solution to this painful problem.

Officials from the state’s department of health considered the advocates’ request at a public hearing lasting over three hours. Caregivers who made public comments in favor argued that cannabis therapy had significantly eased the painful symptoms of withdrawal for their patients, such as nausea, diarrhea, muscle spasms, insomnia and anxiety. They also claimed that the build-up of cannabinoids in the body reduced the chance of relapse.

Patients themselves gave emotional public testimony that cannabis had helped them break the cycle after years of failure. Some even said that the court-ordered methadone clinics actually worsened the cycle of addiction.

In opposition stood the decidedly less understanding Maine Medical Association, who question the amount of science behind the request, and would probably oppose the use of cannabis for most purposes anyway. The addiction recovery community and the pro-cannabis movement have long been at odds, and until more objective research proves that cannabis works, the opposition will remain an obstacle for those seeking safe access.

The support is mounting as more recovering addicts turn to cannabis and share their stories online.
