WOMEN AND WEED

Women love weed, and they’re not afraid to show it! Stoner girls, celebs, and working moms alike are loving the leaf, loud and proud. Here are 10 ways in which marijuana is good for you, girlfriends.

1. Marijuana is medicine.

Marijuana can soothe menstrual cramps, headaches, and lessen the discomfort of period-related bloating. Not to mention, it can de-stress you from PMS! Keep a tincture in your bag to medicate when you’re on your moon cycle. A woman knows: every little thing helps.

2. It’s an equal-opportunity substance.

Stoner girls are representing more and more nowadays, banishing the outdated stereotype that smoking pot is for boys. Weed is for women, weed is for men… weed for everyone!

3. Smoking weed unlocks creativity.

From William Shakespeare to Willie Nelson, creative types throughout the ages have used weed to free their minds, dreaming up plays, paintings, poems, novels and songs. Famous contemporary creative women who celebrate the herb include Patti Smith, Roseanne, Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman, and Susan Sarandon. Burn one down, sisters.

4. Pot brings you closer to your girlfriends.

Smoking weed with other women can be a magical experience, often resulting in amazing, hilarious conversation accompanied by crazy amounts of delicious food. There are invariably deep, emotional moments as well, since we like to be in touch with our feelings. That’s not to say that we don’t get just plain goofy. Roll a fatty for your next dinner party and enjoy the lady palace magic!

5. It can help you feel good about your place in the world.

Smoking can be uplifting. An Hightime Magazine writer says this experience “After sharing a joint with a friend, I took an evening bike ride across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a heart-opening experience following a hard day’s work in the city; the breeze off the water, the moon in the sky, the clatter of a passing train, and a beautiful high made me feel perfectly at ease in the moment”

6. Lay claim to time that’s just for you.

It’s difficult to set aside time for oneself while balancing work, family, friends and lovers. Smoking weed isn’t a replacement for spending time with loved ones, but it can help you cherish the time you take for yourself. Turn off your phone, put on a favorite album, and float away on your own for a while. It will rejuvenate you.

7. The right weed can energize you.

Not all weed makes you lazy. Try smoking or vaping a sativa like Jack Herer in the morning; its lemony, refreshing scent and heady high will have you running circles around your espresso-addicted friends.

8. Being high can put you on the same wavelength.

Good weed can bring you closer to the one you love, if you’re sharing your stash. On the other hand, if you and your significant other are smoking different strains, you may feel distanced from one another. Be aware, and share.

9. It can help you see things from another standpoint.

Sometimes, when you’ve over-thought something, a toke is all it takes to freshen your perspective and allow you to see it in a different light. This can be especially helpful when you’re having an argument with someone important to you. Stop fighting for a moment, and pass the peace pipe.

10. It can help you test your own limits.

As Reggie Watts says in our upcoming December feature interview, “I think that weed is kind of like when you see sports people training, where they have a parachute behind them or they’re in a swimming pool, and they’ve got all this resistance. That’s what weed is for me: It poses a challenge to be able to focus and let go at the same time, so you’re letting go but focusing in on a kind of pure connection to creativity.” I can’t put it any better myself.

How Hemp Oil Cures Cancer And Why No One Knows

Cannabis extract medicine, also known as “hemp oil” when referring to the type pioneered by Rick Simpson, is a concentrated formulation of cannabis that is ingested orally. By eating large quantities of the oil over a three to six month period, nearly any disease you can imagine can either be cured or completely controlled. This is possible because cannabis medicine works fundamentally through the endocannabinoid system, the superregulatory system of our bodies that maintains homeostasis in the other systems. 

You can see the reality of cannabis medicine’s effectiveness in all the things that smoking it is good for. It is widely known and observable that people with cancer, chronic pain, inflammatory conditions, and other conditions smoke cannabis with remarkable efficacy. 

When you think about that, it’s pretty crazy that setting something on fire and inhaling the resulting smoke (thus getting the cannabinoids in a low-concentration form through the lungs, which are not meant to ingest things) works better than many expensive pharmaceuticals. 

But with cannabis extract oil, there are two primary differences. 

First, the cannabinoids are much more concentrated than with smoking, so it has a more powerful effect on your system. 

Second, the oil is ingested, not smoked, meaning it is digested through the system that is meant to absorb nutrients. 

Essentially, you are feeding your body the pure molecules that enable it to stay balanced, and since all disease is an imbalance of some kind, this medicine is effective against nearly anything. At least, that’s what the bulk of science and real experience show.

Scientific Evidence 

There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of scientific studies showing that cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), as well as whole plant formulations, are effective against nearly any disease you can think of. Click here to see an incredibly extensive list of peer-reviewed scientific studies and news reports about cannabis medicine. Here are just a few conditions that science has proven cannabinoids are therapeutically active against: 

– Arthritis
– Cancer
– Crohn’s
– Diabetes
– Fibromyalgia
– Multiple sclerosis
– Parkinson’s

Run From The Cure: How Cannabis Cures Cancer And Why No One Knows 
Cannabis sativa hemp, the miracle plant, contains the cure for cancer and other ailments 

By Rick Simpson 

My name is Rick Simpson. I have been providing people with Hemp Oil medicines, at no cost, for about three years. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Throughout man’s history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge, hemp has always been used as a political and religious football. I want this knowledge out there for everyone to learn! Watch the documentary Run From The Cure to understand more about using cannabis as a cure for cancer and other medical problems! 

The current restrictions against hemp were put in place and maintained, not because hemp is evil or harmful, but for big money to make more big money, while we suffer and die needlessly. Look at a proposal such as this; if we were allowed to grow hemp in our back yards and cure our own illnesses, what do you think the reaction of the pharmaceutical industry would be to such a plan? 

Many large pharmaceutical companies that still exist today sold hemp based medicines in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. They knew then what I have recently found out. Hemp oil if produced properly is a cure-all that the pharmaceutical industry can’t patent.

RUN FROM THE CURE: A Film By Christian Laurette 

After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. When Rick discovered that the hemp oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge, curing and controlling literally hundreds of people’s illnesses… but when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine – leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments – and leaving Rick with unconsitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana! 

Canada is in the middle of a CANCER EPIDEMIC! Meet the people who were not allowed to testify on Rick’s behalf at the Supreme Court of Canada’s Infamous Rick Simpson Trial on September 10, 2007… INCLUDING A MAN WHO WAS CURED OF TERMINAL CANCER USING HEMP OIL!
