Re: “Know Your Grow

I They use Co2. High terpene/flavonoid retention is achieved through a proprietary process they've developed called Terp-Lock, where they often see terpene yields in the double-digit percentages.

I had very specific effects dependent upon which edible I consumed, so I don't find your belief rregarding strain type having no impact to be correct.

The article is in reference to one producer, so most of the time these brands has no bearing on what Peak is producing.

I think the depth and breadth of knowledge of the principles described in the piece negates your assertion that Peak is promoting misinformation and have a lack of R&D. Their position in the market also underscores that.

I agree there are some garbage products in all lanes of the cannabis market which do a disservice to consumers. But I didn't find Peak to be such a brand.

Re: “Know Your Grow

Strain specific within edibles doesn't matter as the effects felt during smoking or vaping cannabis come from the entourage effect & specifically the activation of terpenes & flavonoids. Those two items are what makes a strain "specific", or a better term here would be a cultivar. When you eat or drink cannabis, the entourage effect still works with the other 4,000 or so chemical compounds but your body is much much less influenced by the terpenes & flavonoids. Ratios (1:1, 4:1, 2:1) and dosage matter over everything else. Also, most of the time these brands are not decarbing flower at the minimum temp then adding it to the product (the only true way to keep the essence of that cultivar intact). Also, if they are using BHO Distillate which essentially rips out the goods of the flower, then it really has no effect as far as making you motivated or sleepy. Again, dosage & ratio AND your own body's chemistry are what is going to make you feel what you feel. Brands like Peak are promoting mis-information due to market demand and the lack of their own R&D research.

Re: “County Board vs. Marijuana: Axes are grinding

The only politics involved here is with the reporter. Must be from The Source, a left-wing rag in Central Oregon. Obviously, this county like others in the state, are going through growing pains with a myriad of items regarding marijuana production. I say, take it slow and easy folks. Once these farms are online itll take monumental action to amend and stop any counterproductive impact on a county. I commend the commissioners for their deliberate, precautionary actions.

Re: “County Board vs. Marijuana: Axes are grinding

This is the beginning of what I would define as "poor governance" by the two Republican County Commisoners. Both have a biased political agenda with little regard for the county regulations that are in place.

If the Rhinestone Ranch wants to be an actual children's activity center then it really should have a permit and be open to inspection for safety.

Re: “Canada's Legalization, Four Months In

Canada created communist cannabis. Its all big money! You could learn about freedom from the USA! Also enjoy the fame while you have it, because as soon as we can export cannabis, west coast weed will continue to dominate global sales. O and thats just 1 of our 50 states. It will only take 1 American state to put to shame the entire country of canada. You may have got a head start on export, but you forgot one key factor in the long run.... Cali weed is a global cannabis brand, it has been for years. No one gives a fuck about about canada's shity weed!

Re: “The Commodity that is Cannabis

Like you said in your title, cannabis is now a commodity and will be treated as such. The CEOs and investors of steel companies generally know nothing of welding, fabrication, or truly anything that has to do with steel other than buying and selling it. Why should it be different for cannabis now that it is being viewed as a commodity?

I wish it was different, as I do not feel cannabis can be thought of as a commodity the same way as steel, but we activists had our moment and it has been co-opted by business interests.

Re: “Deschutes County's marijuana blues turn a darker hue

How can businesses know what to expect when rules keep changing? This seems rather foolish to keep changing things when people are trying to get their businesses up and running.

Re: “Skyrocketing Number of Cannabis Studies

Lovely with more reseach. But what kind of research. It'll be a waste of money not to focus many studies into fewer clinical trials of the 'Golden Standard' with placobo, blinded, cross over etc. and with more patients. We have enought small clinical trials, meta analyses, lab research - it dosen't help us to convince the sceptical health community .

Re: “Deschutes County's marijuana blues turn a darker hue

Patty Adair is an idiot. But, so-called "moderate" Republicans in Deschutes County--including Knute Buehler, Cheri Helt and Tammy Baney--deserve some credit for allowing her and the Tea Party Trumpers to takeover the Deschutes County Republican Party. I defy any of them to tell us how they fought to prevent this from happening. Republican "moderates" caved to extremists in their party even as they tried to distance themselves from Trump and the extreme right. That allowed someone like Adair to successfully challenge Baney and turn the County Commission to the extreme right. Now, watch all these so-called moderates cozy up to Adair. They deserve what they get, but they have screwed everyone else in Deschutes County, too. --Michael Funke

Re: “Celebri-weed

I think your comments about Gene Simmons are ridiculous. As a businessman, if he sees Cannabis as a good investment...what is wrong with that? He also speaks highly about the medicinal value of Cannabis. Regarding recreational use...even if he does not smoke weed, he clearly feels that people are free to make up their own minds about what they want to do. So...your comment is simply stupid! And to reference a negative article in another publication seems irrelevant. What a joke!

Re: “Should We Legalize All Drugs? Discuss

"selling drugs with no benefit and a high risk of death seems a poor solution". This is a flawed argument. First of all, all drugs have at least one benefit, they get you high.

Also, who told you it was a high risk of death. Actually, cocaine isn't physically addictive and opium is less dangerous than alcohol and has more medical properties, it's a pain killer. Heroin can kill you with overdose, but only if you use it irresponsibly, which you're more likely to do if you aren't told how to use it properly. In fact, morphine is still used in hospitals, I had a friend who had brain cancer who actually bragged to me that they let her have morphine.

All drugs should be made legal because the drug laws are immoral and unjust. This was never about whether or not drugs are dangerous, drugs are usually pretty safe when used correctly. Some are worse for your body than others, like donuts are worse for you than kale, but donuts taste better.

The drug laws should be repealed. I mean, not only are punishments racist, but they were racially motivated to begin with. "the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races", said Harry Anslinger. This worked to convince people to outlaw it in 1937. The laws capitalize on the supporting ideologies that blacks have a different physiology so they react to the drugs differently than whites, by raping white women and murdering people.

So keeping the laws around keeps this idea that blacks have a different physiology around. It's where they come from, it's what they do. It doesn't keep them around in the way that not everyone knows that, just people smart enough to look up some history on google and every person still in favor of these laws. The idea that there are medical reasons is unfounded not just when it comes to marijuana, although marijuana does have numerous health benefits, but unfounded for other drugs as well.

Just look at alcohol. Alcohol is a dangerous drug. Drink too much of it at one time and you can die. It has no health benefits, actually it's hard for the body to digest and makes you puke if you drink too much as well. It makes you pee a lot.

Despite all this people enjoy drinking it, and can do it relatively safely and live a long healthy life. Or they won't stop, we loved them, and they drank themselves to death that selfish bastard.

Despite this medical reasons to outlaw it and simply not allow it, don't necessarily work. This is because arresting people for hurting themselves when they're doing no harm to others, is fundamentally wrong. Also, the person could be using the drug in moderation. You could have arrested a person who is an occasional alcohol user. Arresting and killing people isn't a solution to the people who drink themselves to death.

I mean, we have enough medical reasons to outlaw guns too, and certainly arsenic, but both those things are legal. I mean, a gun was designed to kill things it doesn't do anything else using it safely is a ridiculous idea you'll just destroy something not alive how's that better. Meanwhile you may kill yourself with alcohol, or you may not, you may be a responsible adult and understand the danger involved.

All drugs, are safer than letting people walk around with guns, yet guns are perfectly legal. That's because drugs are made to get people high, to give them pleasure, not to kill them. Marijuana simply can't kill you. Yet still, people are arrested, killed, and ostracized from society for it. This is about the rights of the drug user to be a person again, who sought pleasure for pleasures sake, in an innocent enough way, by taking a strange plant cooked up by a mad scientist friend, and giving them respect, and not dehumanizing them. So quit dehumanizing me the drug user, and never arrest a drug user again.

Re: “Leafly, the Book

I am suffering from insomnia, I hardly want to sleep all night but my insomnia doesn't want too.. I woke up early for work having 2hrs of sleep only because of this matter. I came across this article saying that this strain induces full-body relaxation. It helps soothe the muscles, thus relieving chronic pain and nausea.. Did someone already use this kind of treatment? Thankyou
