There’s been a lot of popularity surrounding the more recent Delta-8 THC, but what exactly is it?
Delta-8 THC, or delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the four main cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
In the cannabis that the majority of cannabis enthusiasts are used to using, it is the compound delta-9 THC that provides most of the desired effects.
Delta-9 and delta-8 are two very similar cannabinoids, but have some differences. Delta-8 provides effects of less potency and intensity than delta-9, which, on the other hand, means less adverse effects as well.
Delta-8 is legal in many areas due to the fact that most of it that is on the market is manufactured from hemp-derived CBD- this makes it legal, technically.
Delta-8 is known to be a safe compound, as it naturally occurs in all cannabis, just at smaller amounts. The effects that delta-8 provides, although less potent, are the same as delta-9 offers.
There are many medical conditions that can be treated by using delta-8, also.
Delta-8 THC is a trend that is still young, and many questions still exist regarding its effects, origin, and legality.

Many state that there are tricks on sexing a cannabis seed by its overall appearance. A popular photo shows on the Internet quite frequently, and a lot of cannabis growers use this photo as reference to sex their seeds.
Most cannabis growers would much rather know the sex of their seed immediately, but is this possible?
Here, we will go over this theory, as well as the photo.
Contrary to what many think, you cannot sex a cannabis seed simply by looking at a seeds characteristics. Furthermore, you cannot sex a cannabis seed, period.
Cannabis growers and cannabis enthusiasts alike- beware of this well-known myth.
If this were the case, the process for feminized cannabis seeds would not exist, and would not be such a “hit” in the cannabis seed market.
The Photo Behind the Myth
Here is that photo that is widely recognized by many tokers and growers as a genuine guide to sexing cannabis seeds.
This photo displays five seeds (which honestly, may not even be cannabis seeds)- the photo states that two of the seeds are male, while the remaining three are female.
According to this photo, if there is no “perfectly round” crater present at the bottom of the seed, it is surely a male seed. This is purely myth.
In addition, you cannot sex a weed seed by the way it rolls on a flat surface. This photo should be considered nonsensical, however, there are still far too many who side with these false statements.
There are also many seed banks online who are currently selling seeds that they claim to be certain are feminized seeds, however, use the seeds’ characteristics as determination that the seeds are female.
There are even some seed banks who offer “free male seeds” to customers as a promotion.
JustCannabisSeed.com may not offer feminized seeds, but we do offer you the guarantee that your seeds’ genders are unknown- which is much better than having your hopes let down by a falsely-informed seedbank.
We would much rather tell you that we are unsure of the sex of your seeds, than to promise that they are either female or male cannabis seeds, and later find out that the exact opposite is true.
There is no surefire, 100% guaranteed way of sexing a cannabis seed by its appearance. If anyone tells you otherwise, please let them know that this is a common myth. Stay informed with JustCannabisSeed.com.
Marijuana is a plant that grows into the ground with no added ingredients added to it.
Other drugs have things added to them to make them more effective to the alignment to help with aches, cancer and many other illnesses.
I know as a person who has had seizures, marijuana has helped me get off of the seizure meds and be able to function to raise my kids. The seizure meds had me loopy and not all the way there for my kids. I can focus more on them then having to worry about if I am able to take care of everyday needs for them.
They have their mother back!
Just like everything thing else you have to do in moderation and always be aware of your surroundings.
Now that I can’t get any help with trying to get a medical card because the new Dr, I am seeing is saying she will not give me one because she feels it will not help my seizures.
But after taking that medicine that makes me not alert for my kids. I don’t want to have to back track all the hard work I been through in the last year.
I can function better for them when I have smoked a little marijuana, and it doesn’t make me sick from taking it. And, it doesn’t take much to realize the effects! I am able to hold down food and do other things to keep me going through the day.
My grandmother had cancer and while she was going through her chemo, she lost her hair and no appetite she smoked some marijuana and was able to eat and feel a whole lot better about herself.
My mother has arthritis with no cure or surgery to help the pain in her joints but with marijuana she is able to cope with the pain from it.
I don’t write this to receive pity, I write this so other people with the same health issues as me and my family can at least find a faster, better way to help with their pain and and receive the best help possible for them.
Not a lot has worked for us, even when we tried the meds that the Drs gave us.
I can actually focus on the day ahead of me after i have smoked a little marijuana.
I remember being pregnant with my oldest daughter. I wasn’t gaining weight and not holding food down so I smoked a little marijuana while still early in my pregnancy. I was able to keep food down and not be sick because my Dr thought he was going to have to have me on hospital rest because of the weight loss. I told him I smoked some marijuana and was able to gain the weight back, and my Doc happily allowed me to continue to use cannabis in moderation.
Fast forward to 20 years later, my daughter is now in college, and on the dean’s list every year since she entered college! Cannabis has been in the forefront of treating my illnesses, and improving my quality of life!
My first encounter with Cannabis was through a story I was told by my father who grew up in Fez, Morocco.
The story, which dates back to 1942, is a tale of young boys ? my father and his brothers – who decided to horse around with their mother. Somehow, the three oldest brothers managed to buy Hashish and on Friday night dinner they put the hashish on their mother?s plate. She ate it with her dinner without noticing anything at all.
The food she had prepared for the family was enough for both Friday and Saturday for 9 people (parents and 7 children) since cooking on Saturday ?the Sabbath- is prohibited in the Jewish religion.
The family woke up on Saturday only to discover that both the entire prepared and raw food had disappeared from the house. All the pots and pans were empty.
It turned out that the mother of the family, under the influence of the Hashish she had eaten at dinner, woke up in the middle of the night and ate everything in sight ? without knowing it.
For a long time I was against marijuana under the influence of all who opposed it without offering any good reasons why. I have since changed my mind.
Last summer my wife went to Europe and I asked her to buy a few cannabis seeds. She bought three and brought them back on August 4th.
On August 5, 2019, I planted one seed in my garden. It grew into a beautiful plant. I showed it to a few people who commented that it was a model plant that could be on a poster.
Unfortunately, frost came very early in 2019 and before the frost I dug out the plant (very carefully) and put it in a huge planter. It continued to do beautifully indoors but I noticed that its growth had slowed.
I did not provide special lighting to the plant.
It also did not help that my little 12Lb dog started feasting on the bottom leaves and behaving very strangely! Eventually I did put a fence around the plant to protect it from the dog.
The winter in New York is very long and although the plant survived for another 3 months indoors it stopped growing and eventually died.
I did realize I needed 2 more months for the plant to mature but I did not have that time. Now some of my seeds are in the ground, two full months earlier than last year?s experiment.
Phytocannabinoids accumulating in the resin of cannabis plants are made naturally in the human body.
That’s actually the reason why humans have such strong interactions with cannabinoids. There is a network of receptors in our body that cause all of the different things that you experience.
The two most common and researched chemicals are THC and CBD.
Anecdotal evidence shows that THC is the most psychoactive of the two, while CBD is more relaxing and homeopathic.
Today?s genetics provide THC content levels hovering around 30%. New users that aren?t used to the intoxicating effects of THC may want to start with lower levels and or a higher mix of CBD.
CBD seems to have a leveling out effect on THC intoxication. Studies have shown remarkable positive effects for people who ingest the acid form of THC and CBD.
These effects typically take 3 to 4 weeks which is typical of your current SSRI?s. Consuming this raw form from juicing or capsule form has even show positive impacts on the behavior of ?rowdy? children.
However, smoking or decarboxylation of cannabis is the traditional form of ingestion and produces a unique high dependent on the levels of THC. THC acid preparations tinctures are a great way for people to try cannabis for the first time. THC acid has some pretty substantial anti-inflammatory properties and may have some antispastic properties as well.
If you’re juicing flowers you do need to add a little bit of water into your blender as well or some juicers can actually get hot and activate the THC acid.
THC as a therapy, you have to try it for a while to make sure you’re actually experiencing a benefit. For many patients is actually up to three to four weeks after daily use that they truly start to experience the benefits.
Daily use of THC acid and CBD (acid or decarboxylated) and then decarboxylated THC for flare-ups, usually works best for most patients regardless of the chronic condition.
Using opioids for the least amount of time necessary to treat pain and then switching to THC is changing the landscape of opioid addiction.
If you are in the bipolar Spectrum, you will definitely need to discuss THC use with your doctor beforehand as it can make anxiety worse. However, there is anecdotal evidence that CBD is very helpful for anxiety.
Since we still know so little about brain chemistry, you may need some guidance and experimentation to find what ratios of THC and CBD work for you.
The culmination of these symptoms and the use of chemical extraction techniques has made high CBD strains a hot commodity.
What?s not to love about cannabis cooking? I know I love everything about it, and I?m here to share a simple but sweet favorite. These little 3 ingredient gems are sure to get a smile from your cannabis consuming friends. Keep it simple or spruce it up; leave it alone,
or layer it with a cannabis-infused chocolate coating. The possibilities are absolutely endless for these sweet, healthy, flourless, dairy-free and oh so simple chewy peanut butter bites . . . and you might just have everything you need to make them now.
1 cup peanut butter (Your favorite or course). I use a healthy natural peanut butter like Maranatha Organics or a Jiff Natural, but it’s your recipe now, so it’s really up to you to have fun with. 🙂
1/3 – 1/2 cup medicated infused natural sweetener (or up to 1 cup medicated sugar or a combination of medicated and regular sugar to suit your medical needs). Feel free to taste the batter when you mix the sugar and peanut butter together to get your desired sweetness. I prefer not so sweet, but if you have a sweet tooth that needs craving or want your cookies to pack a bigger punch, add a little more.
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla (optional. I opt-in, because I make my own vanilla extract, but if you don’t have any on hand, don’t let it stop you from baking up a batch of delicious meds.)
Add-ins like Chocolate chips, jelly, nuts, flavored baking chips, (optional)
Also needed: Cookie sheet and baking spray or parchment paper.
Preheat the oven to 350?F and spray a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter and sweetener to taste, (Yes, taste it if you want to now for desired sweetness, keep adding until you are happy with the taste.)
Add the egg and mix.
Optional add ins , 1 tsp of vanilla, and/or chocolate or flavored baking chips, nuts, or jelly on top in the center like a thumbprint cookie ). Remeber tHC likes FAT to bond, so do not be scared to layer a little if you want.
Scoop out a tablespoon of dough at a time and roll it into a ball and set it onto the cookie sheet. – Flatten the cookie balls by pressing your finger into the middle (If making jelly thumbprint cookies add a small spoon of jelly on top prior to baking) – Or, use a fork and lightly press on top of them to make a classic criss-cross pattern.- Maybe add some Peanut butter, chocolate chips, or another Flavor if you prefer.
These will not spread like a traditional peanut butter cookie, so they can be spaced close together on your cookie sheet. You should fit all 12 to a pan, with no problem.
Bake these babies up for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies have golden brown edges or are done to your liking.
Remove from baking sheet and cool before you enjoy the bite sized buzz.
Store in airtight container up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Approx 12 cookies depending on size.
Be sure to label these cookies and store them safely. Little fingers shouldn’t find these, so please keep them out of reach of children without a medical card, and pets who might overindulge and not be able to help themselves.
Storing Canna (have another) Peanut Butter Cookies
I am a believer of fresh is best, so I make these regularly. These cookies will last up to 5 days If they are stored at room temperature in an airtight container, but I bet that they won’t last that long.
Saving some for later, planning a party, or just doubling the batch? You can even freeze these babies. If you want to freeze them, here are a few tips and tricks.
First let them cool completely. (This is very important.)
Next, lay them out in a single layer on a small cookie sheet or plate and freeze them until they are frozen solid. (We do this so that the cookies don?t stick together.)
Once these gems are frozen, you can transfer them to an airtight container or zip-top freezer bag. They store nicely for up to 3 months. Thaw them ahead by leaving a few out overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter, and then enjoy them at your leisure. In fact, I have a few in my fridge, and I am off to enjoy one now with my morning coffee. What a wonderful way to start a morning! Wishing you Peace and Love, and Prosperity to All
The Next Recipe will be today?s treat. I call it Monkey Business (chocolate deliciousness made infused butter or coconut oil) with the chefs choice of coconut, candy, and or nuts)
Thing first step in making your own cannabis-infused coconut oil is weighing out 7 grams of marijuana.
Preheat your oven to 215?F, then break up the weed using a cannabis grinder or a pair of scissors.
Cover the bottom of your baking dish with the ground cannabis, and seal tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake the cannabis in the 215?F oven for 30 minutes to activate the cannabis. This process is called decarboxylation, and it helps to create a more potent oil infusion.
Remove from the oven, leaving the aluminum foil tight over the top. Keeping it sealed helps prevent cannabinoid-rich vapor or steam from escaping the container, and allows it to settle back into the herb ? again, helping with potency.
Melt your coconut oil in a medium-size pan over low heat while the baking dish filled with herb cool.
After the herb dish has been left to cool for about 15 minutes, uncover and pour the melted coconut oil over the cannabis. Use a spoon to mix until combined; the goal is to coat all of the dry herb with oil.
Cover tightly with the aluminum foil once more, and return it to the 215?F oven for an hour and a half. If possible, it?s best to stir/agitate the mixture once or twice while it?s baking. Doing so helps the cannabinoids distribute more evenly.
Remove the dish from the oven, and let cool with the aluminum foil cover on for 15-20 minutes ? until you can comfortably handle the dish.
Place a double layer of cheesecloth over the opening of whatever storage vessel you will be using to store your infused oil. Carefully pour your infusion over the cheesecloth, straining out all chunks of plant matter in the process.
Gather up the sides of the cheesecloth into a bundle, and squeeze out as much remaining oil as possible….You?re all done! It is that easy to make your own cannabis-infused coconut oil.
You?ve just created a batch of activated cannabis-infused coconut oil, and now you can make a delectably potent batch of cookies, edibles, or you can use this anywhere you would use ?regular? coconut oil, making it perfect for multiple use possibilities with this infusion are endless!
It helped me with the pain in my leg after having 16 pins and 2 plates to put me back together. The infused cannabis oil helps with my debilitating backaches as well.
Looking into buying a butter machine to make it easier till then this my old recipe.
Hope this recipe helps you create your own cannabis infused medicine to improve your quality of life!
Four Ways Our Bodies Take in This Marvelous Medication.
Smoking and Vaping
The seemingly easiest and perhaps most popular method of absorption is inhalation. It is also the shortest acting.
THC, CBD and other cannabis compounds are absorbed into the body through the lungs by inhaling combusted or vaporized cannabis.
There are many methods of combustion and various levels of vaporization. Each carries its own benefits and effects.
Smoking a joint is very different than smoking a pipe, and both are different than smoking a bong. Vaporization is its very own glorious beast.
Ingesting edibles is becoming increasingly popular and with dispensaries becoming more legalized, this is becoming an even more popular prescription for medical patients.
Although this absorption method takes time because the Thc and cbd molecules have to travel through the digestive system where they are absorbed and metabolized. The medical benefits last substantially longer and are generally worth the wait.
Just like inhalation, the types of ingestion vary. Simplified, the most popular forms of edibles are candies and baked goods, although cooking and meals with meds and infused fats and oils as well as raw plant materials are becoming increasingly more popular.
Beverages like weed wine and Green Dragon are also great choices. Cbd drinks and juices are also trending.
Absorption Through Mucus Membranes
Absorption of THC and CBD through mucus membranes found in the mouth is arguably the fastest, most discrete, and most effective method of med absorption.
The effects of only a few drops of your favorite cannabis medication in your mouth is sure to please most medical and recreational users (and save your lungs a little).
Consider making or trying: ? your tincture of choice (Typically alcohol, oil, or glycerin) under the tongue, ? a spoon full of some special sugar, or my preference a healthier monk fruit version)(like an adult version FunDips). ? Make some HealTHC Honey, or ? try a tiny dab of RSO
Transdermal Absorption of Cannabis
Finally, transdermal absorption. This is the absorption of cannabis medicine like Thc and CBD through the skin. This method is not psychoactive and results only in localized effects.
Making these creams and lotions can be a fun project for the scraps growers and even recreational users may inevitably have.
The wonderful thing about cannabis is that it can be tailored to you and to fit your needs.
As a grower, a cook, a baker, and a cannabis meds maker, I can tell you the possibilities are endless, and they are not one size fits all.
It?s all about finding out what works best for you in your state, that also fits with your lifestyle, and most importantly your body and it’s chemistry.
My ?Journey” to, from, and back to Cannabis as a medication is what I personally call an exciting one and I am so grateful I have finally been afforded the opportunity to share it publicly.
As some of us have experimented with marijuana in our younger years, my generation always split the gap between pro and anti-marijuana legislation.
There was always a debate in social gatherings and political platforms alike. Sometimes leading to unfair stigma and judgment.
Naturally, I was elated when my state legalized the herb for medicinal use and small grows.
About a year ago I was approved and started using cannabis to treat PTSD, severe depression, and anxiety.
The results were amazing compared to the pharmaceuticals that were being pushed to me and changed almost like the weather.
Using the right combination of relaxing and focusing strains for day/night use has cut my prescription drug usage down to half and still dropping with every checkup.
Most people can’t afford to pay outrageous prices for designer flowers in pretty packages! Thay is where Jerry comes in, great genetics, fresh cannabis seeds with a high germination rate, for cheap…steeply discounted prices.
Growing your own medicine is easy on your wallet, while providing a fulfilling hobby for a great payout.
I’ve started growing in a small grow tent and have found the whole endeavor to be pretty fun and fulfilling.
Though it took some research and beginner’s mistakes to get the ball rolling, I’m able to produce my own medicine without hassles of lines and prices.
As you gain experience growing cannabis it will become like second nature.
Providing things keep improving at their current level I hope to be pharmaceutical free by the end of the year. Thanks to this gift of a plant my life has changed for the better on all fronts. I feel the best I’ve felt in years and have more focus and energy than I could hope for with the most refreshing rest to recharge the old battery.
So I guess the point to all this rambling is to keep an open mind and remember that what works for you may be different from the next person.
Give yourself the chance to improve by means that others may find controversial.
Our dependency on pharmaceutical pills to make everything better, is a fallacy for most, as the side effects can prove to be worst then the conditions they treat. Don’t let your dependency on these pills prevent you from the progress of refining the natural gifts we have used for millennia…..CANNABIS!
With daily life comes incredible stress and it is more important than ever to be able to make an effort to improve our quality of life. If marijuana can give you that relief and let you relax and enjoy your life, I’d say you deserve it.
Times are crazy enough and people need to keep in mind that mental health is just as important as physical health. Just a little time to kick back and listen to music or listen/read a book, maybe take a hike and enjoy a little fresh air and sunshine can change your perspective completely.
I honestly have to thank the people that are trying to make this treatment more mainstream and cutting the stigma away.
They put in amazing work and provide us with a resource far better than years ago.
In short, my life is much more enjoyable because of medical cannabis.
I’m happier, healthier, and more fun to be around.
I’m able to enjoy more social interaction and be around people for the first time in what seems like forever.
Thanks for reading my story of medical marijuana success, and my opinions regarding cannabis in general.
