Five women who are members of the Hollywood Knockouts, bikini-clad female oil wrestlers who travel throughout the country for events, were arrested on marijuana charges while driving to Fort Worth for a performance on Tuesday, according to social media posts.

The performers were expected to be at Whiskey Garden on West 7th on Tuesday night when the event was canceled “due to some unfortunate circumstances with the wrestlers,” the venue said on Facebook Tuesday evening, about four hours before the event.

Whiskey Garden is trying to reschedule the event, according to the post. The bar did not explain what the circumstances were and did not respond to a request for comment.

Does smoking weed help you concentrate and improve productivity?

It’s important to know the potential adverse effects of weed before you run to your local dispensary and pick up a strain that’s supposed to help you focus.

One of the most common and exaggerated marijuana stereotypes is the image of a thoughtless and lazy stoner. This is because weed has been historically associated with a lack of motivation, forgetfulness and an overall unambitious state of being for decades. 

As marijuana has gone more mainstream, these stigmas have, at least partially, been broken. This is especially true as more high functioning individuals admit that they regularly get high to help achieve their successful feats. Still, limited research has been conducted on marijuana’s ability to help improve concentration and stimulate productivity.

Is sticky weed a good or bad sign?

One good rule of thumb to determine if your cannabis is sticky or wet is a quick smell test. Properly cured and sticky weed should smell potent and fresh. 

There are so many types of marijuana on the market these days that many consumers have stopped trying to keep up with which strand is which. In fact, it can feel like every time you go to a dispensary there’s a brand new list of strain names you have never heard of.

The whole process of choosing from all these new types of weed can be a bit overwhelming. If you don’t want to choose by name, you might use your nose to smell through the variety of buds and see what perks your nostrils.

Few options exist at MSU for prospective cannabis students

Thousands of students attend Michigan State University to study biology, chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, business and agriculture. While these programs might not seem all too similar, an uncommon link creates a connection between them all — cannabis.

Its multi-disciplinary nature and wide variety of uses have resulted in a multi-million-dollar industry, especially since its legalization for recreational use in 2019. This has resulted in a student population that is seeking to focus on entrance into this industry.

But these students won't find any level of cannabis-focused education at MSU.

How to prevent uneven burning in your rolled joints

Canoeing is a term used to describe the uneven burning of a joint. The blunt burns more on one side than the other, which takes the fun out of smoking. Here’s how to avoid it.

Regular and occasional smokers would have had a joint at least once since they commenced their smoking journey. The few who might deny it probably have no clue what canoeing means, or they’ve been fortunate.

Canoeing has nothing to do with experience because even the most experienced smokers occasionally have their blunts shaped like canoes.

TAC allows you to experiment with different product ratios to decipher the concentration that gives you the best cannabis experience.

Cannabis is a highly versatile herb. As the world continues to embrace it, millions of people are being introduced to the various cannabinoids that make up the plant. Often, the tag “TAC” can be found written on the packages of cannabis products. But very few understand what this “TAC” is all about.

First of all, TAC stands for Total Active Cannabinoids. It refers to the cannabis profile of a strain. When purchasing a cannabis product or seed, consumers are able to have more insight into the total cannabinoid content of the strain. With TAC, users can customize their cannabis sessions.

Shining a light on the Thailand cannabis community

women

In a country known for cannabis exports, the Thailand cannabis community thrives despite legislative challenges.

Thailand hasn’t always prohibited cannabis; it’s part of the culture.

Ganja plants were typically grown on the side of the house and used in traditional Thai medicine and Thai massage. Even today, some grandparents cultivate a few plants and toss a couple of leaves in their Tom Yom (traditional Thai soup).

The U.S. illicit market fueled Thai Stick exports, which came from U.S. soldiers based in the Kingdom during the Vietnam War. At the time, there was no legal or moral taboo surrounding the plant in Thailand.
