6 ways marijuana affects men and women differently

man and woman

Marijuana interacts with a variety of hormones, producing different effects in men and women. Here are 6 differences that researchers have noticed.

Men and women are very similar, yet there are key differences in their systems. Like many other substances, marijuana affects them in different ways. While some differences can be explained due to different body types and sizes, cannabis has an interesting relationship with a variety of hormones, including estrogen, thus producing different responses in people.

What happens if you try to sneak edibles onto a plane?

You cannot bring edibles or any form of cannabis on a plane. Even a legal prescription from a licensed medical practitioner might not be accepted.

The full resumption of commercial flights after the long pause across the world means many people plan to get into the skies soon.

We can all admit that the acceptance of cannabis and its derived products soared throughout the pandemic. So, it is expected that thousands of cannabis lovers are unaware of the laws regulating the use and possession of cannabis in United States airports.

4 anti-cannabis myths (and how to bust them)

cannabis

The cannabis narrative may be changing at a rapid pace worldwide, but here in the UK, we’re seriously lagging behind. Even with the public backing of cannabis legalisation reaching new heights, the same old rhetoric claiming the apparent dangers to health and society reign supreme in our national press and in conversation. 

In a recent article, we covered ways you can help end the stigma surrounding cannabis. One of the points made (perhaps the most important point) was about education – educating yourself so that you are able to educate others on what is true and what is misinformation.

Illicit vs. legal: What are the real benefits of buying weed from a licensed dispensary?

weed

If you buy from a dealer or someone that you don’t know very well, there’s no real way of telling if the pot you’re about to smoke was synthetically produced.

Many of us have had a close relationship with our cannabis dealers especially before weed was legalized. Dealers are often the first point of contact in buying pot from someone that you have known for a while. Even better, if you’ve had a long relationship with them, then they are probably giving you good prices for decent weed — even if you already have several dispensaries in your area and access to online cannabis deliveries.

In many cases, dispensary cannabis is slightly or much more expensive, depending on the variety. So why should you buy weed from one?

L.A. cultivators, Jungle Boys, raided over bogus late fees

swat

TLC, home of the Jungle Boys, was raided by law enforcement over $66,000—which the collective had already disputed, and had a hearing date for.

Tuesday night saw one of Los Angeles’s most storied dispensaries have a rough run-in with law enforcement and The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration.

TLC is famously the headquarters of the Jungle Boys. They are one of the premier examples of urban farmers bootstrapping their way to success in the modern cannabis industry, which has seen so many tragically fall short and have to sell a piece, or sell out completely. So as one of the culture’s best success stories in a world of corporate dogs, the community was pissed to see what they had to go through last night.

How cannabis has been used in times of war

The relationship between the U.S. military and weed seemed to diminish completely with the prohibition of marijuana in America. But this all changed during the Vietnam War.

The United States Armed Forces and cannabis have had an adversarial relationship since the two met more than a century ago. Still, even with current zero tolerance rules within the military, there are some strides being made to make cannabis accessible on a medical level to those who have previously served.

Few subjective differences between LSD and psilocybin trips, study finds

LSD

Subjects in a study had trouble telling LSD and psilocybin apart, when taken in common doses.

A new study published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology provided results from one of the first modern clinical investigations of its kind to compare the effects of psychedelic drugs lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and psilocybin. Researchers recorded few qualitative subjective differences between the two drugs, as test subjects had trouble distinguishing them.

While LSD is much more potent than psilocybin and other psychedelic compounds at lower doses, comparable common doses of the two drugs caused similar effects, as participants had a tough time separating the two from one another. Nor were they able to easily distinguish between medium and higher doses.

Clones versus seeds: What's the best way to grow a cannabis product?

Wondering whether a clone or a seed produces the best harvest is likely not a thought that occurs to the layperson, but it’s one that cannabis producers spend significant time considering. (Originally appeared on Benzinga )

Picking between seed and clone affects almost everything about the final cannabis product. The source of the cannabis plant affects the potency of the flower, the quantity and size of the buds, and the growth-to-maturity process, all components crucial to creating a quality cannabis product.

woman

Keep an eye out for a scripted feature adaptation and a non-scripted series spinoff of the documentary, ‘Lady Buds.’

Lady Buds is a 2021 film that looks deep into the lives of six diverse women in the cannabis industry, and the victories and challenges they have endured as entrepreneurs and members of the community. On February 23, it was announced on Deadline that Lady Buds’ success has inspired two more film projects.

The first project is being produced by Hellcat as a cannabis-related comedy feature, which has been compared to the 2011 film Bridesmaids. Hellcat was founded in 2020 by Pippa Lambert, whose resume also includes roles at Endeavor Content, WME, ICM Partners, and more.
