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: “Youth Hostile

Dearest Source, I found your "Youth Hostile" piece both ironic and offensive, to all women. With it's insulting references to older women (those over 35) going as far as comparing them to "antiques", its publication is especially insensitive in The Women's Issue, of all things.

Re: “Green Building: A Smart Investment?

You know what's even greener than green buildings? Building things close enough together so that people don't have to drive for *everything* in their lives:…

Of course that's not for everyone, but if the market will produce it, we should allow it.

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: “This Modern World

Medicare-for-all cost estimates exceed $32T over ten years. Total federal tax revenue for 2019 is estimated at $3.4T. Medicare-for-all thus would double taxes. Since not all citizens pay federal income taxes, it will become necessary to expand the tax base to include nearly everyone who does not pay federal income tax now. Effectively, those who are younger, healthier and who can least afford Medicare insurance premiums and contributions will subsidize older, less healthy retirees. Have at it. Just give Howard Schultz or Michael Bloomberg a ring for a bit of economic education.

Don't confuse health insurance with health care. The best way to reduce the cost of health care and expand its availability is to produce more doctors and health professionals. If you want to spend tax dollars to improve health care, consider subsidizing medical education costs to promote the desirability of a medical education to more students. This country can use more doctors and fewer cartoonists.

Re: “River Warrior

Always interesting to hear from our liberal citizens regarding climate change. I wonder how many natural climate changing events have occurred during this spheres billions of years, without man. To point to specific occurences such as wildly different weather patterns, that are normal, we conveniently point to climate change then live with guilt that every thing man touches has a direct and instant impact is ludicrous.

Funny, this crisis shifted from global cooling to global warming and now that neither of those can accurately cover nature - the catch-all is climate change.

I absolutely believe we should live responsibly with our lives and respect one another and the environment. But dont smear me with wild unsubstantiated arguments that lean left, policitally. Straw men only stand so long - so liberals, keep your your statements factual.

How may tons of carbon pollution from wildfires has been released into the atmosphere? How many of these fires could have been avoided by managing our forests responsibly as commercial companies do by thinning and harvesting?

Amazing thought process with our liberal friends that lack logic connectivity.
