Cannabis Corp with Libertarian Views Buys Town

Published / by GreenDesk

Company with libertarian views has bought a small town and expects to turn it into a “weed paradise,” according to this curated news note:

NIPTON, Calif. — Now that one of the nation’s largest cannabis companies has bought the entire California desert town of Nipton, a question remains: Will the new owners rename the place Potsylvania?

The name Weed already belongs to an old mill town in Northern Calfornia.

American Green Inc. announced Thursday it is buying all 80 acres of Nipton, which includes its Old West-style hotel, a handful of houses, an RV park and a coffee shop. Its plans are to transform the old Gold Rush town into what it calls “an energy-independent, cannabis-friendly hospitality destination.”

The town’s current owner, Roxanne Lang, said the sale is still in escrow, but confirmed American Green is the buyer. She declined to reveal price before the sale closes, but noted she and her late husband, Gerald Freeman, listed the property at $5 million when they put it up for sale last year.

Asked what her husband would think of the buyers’ plans to turn Nipton into the pot paradise of the California desert, she laughed heartily.

“I think he would find a lot of humor in that,” she finally said, adding that as a Libertarian Freeman had no problem with people using marijuana, and as a proponent of green power he’d be all in favor of energy independence. Over the years he’d installed a solar farm himself that provides much of the tiny town’s electricity.

American Green says it plans to expand that farm and also bottle and sell cannabis-infused water from Nipton’s plentiful aquifer, joint moves that would make the town green in more ways than one.

The buyers are also reaching out to edibles manufacturers and other pot-industry businesses, hoping they’ll be interested in relocating to Nipton and bringing jobs with them.

The town’s current residents number fewer than two dozen and one of its major sources of revenue is the California Lottery tickets the general store sells to people who cross the state line from Nevada because they can’t buy them there.

“We are excited to lead the charge for a true Green Rush,” David Gwyther, American Green’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “The cannabis revolution that’s going on here in the U.S. has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century.”

Indeed it was a gold rush that created Nipton in the early 1900s when the precious metal was found nearby.

But by the time Freeman, a Los Angeles geologist who liked to look for gold in his spare time, discovered the place in the 1950s it was already a ghost town. Even worse it was 60 miles south of Las Vegas and 10 miles (16 kilometers) off the major highway that connects that city to Los Angeles.

“I like to say it’s conveniently located in the middle of nowhere,” jokes Lang.

Freeman bought the town in 1985 anyway and spent the next 30 years lovingly restoring its boutique hotel and general store, building canvas-covered “eco cabins” and stocking them with wood-burning stoves and swamp coolers.

The small hotel has become a popular destination with desert aficionados and fans of the Old West, even though it’s located so close to a major rail line that moves freight between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City that guests are handed earplugs with their room keys.

Carl Cavaness, who works at the hotel, said Thursday the sale caught him by surprise. He said he hopes the new owners will let him and his wife stay.

“We like the quiet and solitude,” the 53-year-old handyman said.


Using Weed and Natural Sleep Spray Products for Better Rest

Published / by GreenDesk

Curated recent article excerpt touching on using weed and natural alternatives to improve sleep, with products comparable to sprayble melatonin, and similar sprayable sleep products:

…PROBLEM: You stay up late at night scrolling through your news feed, kept awake by the endless litany of horrific new executive orders and bizarre tweets. Every time you close your eyes, you see an orange-headed, hollow-eyed Cheeto monster. He haunts your nightmares.

You’ll definitely want to lean toward indica strains—known for their deeply relaxed, glued-to-the-couch-type effects and a great salve for insomnia. Sara Fletcher, the procurement manager and “resident sleep doctor” for Dockside Cannabis, recommends what she calls “sleep-forward strains.”

“Sleep-forward strains,” she explains, “are products that are going to help you kick your feet up a little bit more and promote relaxation.” Strains like Granddaddy Purple, Afghan Kush, and Purple Kush will blanket your senses with calming effects and, possibly, stop those racing Trump-train thoughts.

“Sometimes one of the greatest things that keeps us from falling asleep is us,” she says. “Just our brain turning in circles and trying to figure things out—sleep-forward strains help stop your treadmill of thoughts.”

It’s all in the terpenes, you see—chemical compounds that provide the flavor and aroma of the plant, like in a bouquet. Terpenes attach themselves to various receptors in the brain, yielding various effects. Strains high in the terpene linalool, which occurs naturally in flowers and herbs like lavender and coriander, help promote serenity.

“It has a really similar effect,” explains Fletcher, “to imbibing actual lavender by tea or even just smelling the essential oil.” Grape Ape is also a great sleep-forward strain—”a classic,” Fetcher says, that “smells like candy and tastes like an IPA.”

For those times when you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, Fletcher recommends keeping a spray like the Enchantmint Breathspray on your nightstand. Spray it under your tongue—it will absorb sublingually and be in your bloodstream within 10 minutes.

Another option is a tincture called Deep Sleep, which has herbal extracts, a touch of sweet orange essential oils, and a high CBD-to-THC ratio. For a more sustained effect that will take longer to set in, eat some Swifts truffles an hour before bedtime.

And stay away from the news, Fletcher recommends. “Watch some Netflix,” she says. “Or silly baby-animal videos.”

Forskolin Products Lack Toxicity, Says Study

Published / by GreenDesk

Recent study demonstrates a popular GNC forskoline supplement shows no negative effects when ingested in the amounts recommended.

East Windsor, NJ—The International Journal of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Research recently published a paper about a branded ingredient’s safety record in a small-animal study.

Sabinsa Corporation and Sami Labs founder Muhammed Majeed, Ph.D., lead researcher, concentrated on his company’s patented Coleus forskohlii extract (ForsLean). Groups of five male and female rats took 10% forskolin (as Forslean) at 2,000 mg/kg body weight and were observed for two weeks for any sign of toxicity. In a separate 28-day arm of the study, daily doses of 100, 300 and 1,000 mg/kg body were administered. Last, in another segment, groups of 20 male and 20 female rats took 10% forskolin for 180 days at daily dose levels of 500 mg/kg and 1,000 mg/kg body weight.

After all testing, no rats died and no major changes in hematology and serum biochemistry values were found between the active and control groups. In addition, body weight changes were normal, no organ damage was found and no signs of toxicity were uncovered.

The authors state, “In conclusion, the ‘No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL)’ of CF extract was determined to be above 1,000 mg/kg b.wt/day.”

Providers React to CBD Oil Regulatory Changes

Published / by GreenDesk

With Alabama joining Virginia this month in passing legislation that approves or regulates the medicinal use of cannabis oil (cannabidiol, or CBD), and other states already following suit, increasing numbers of providers are preparing to meet the demand for the compound. These 17 states, among them Colorado, Texas, along with a pending bill in Oklahoma, join an expanding list of countries (including Brazil, and New Zealand) who have recently granted expanded access to medical marijuana derived compounds.

According to Quadratum, a producer and advocate of medicinal CBD oil use based in Alamosa, Colorado, there is a rising awareness of its therapeutic benefits, and growing need for modern, environment-CBD Oil Capsulesfriendly production facilities to capitalize on its legal status. “What we’re finding is there’s a wide open frontier, in terms of what it can do, and what we’re seeing in terms of treatment of patients. People with a wide variety of diseases and ailments are seeing real, true healing,” reports Emmy award winning journalist Ben Swann.

“There’s actually not nearly enough people (producing) it right now. There are enormous backlogs of cancer patients, people with Crohns disease, and people with epilepsy who are on waiting list to receive the CBD oil. There’s not enough production going on, to meet the demand right now. Which of course makes the cost of CBD higher than it needs to be.” Swann suggests the federal government may also be holding up production, as it has not moved as quickly as many states in approving it for medicinal use.

CBD oil currently remains on the Schedule I drug list due to its derivation from the marijuana plant. There is also a concern, in light of the expanded access, that new producers should conform to a higher standard of practice and quality control when generating cannabis oil products. Quadratum on its site has announced “we currently use no pesticides or herbicides on our farm, and we are in the process of acquiring USDA Organic Certification. We want our customers to be able to buy the best, most wholesome CBD oil and hemp products possible.”
