Colorado MMJ: Bringing Conventional Medicine Back to the Basics

It shocks me how concerned society is today about pesticides and additives in the foods we eat, but how little we care about the additives in pharmaceutical drugs. Colorado is known among other states as a state with plenty of organic and natural stores, farmer’s markets and options for those who want to eliminate additives from their diet. While many are turning to natural vitamins and herbs to boost metabolism and ensure their bodies receive ample nutrients, we are still ignoring the amount of processed drugs we consume for pain.


Medical marijuana is one of the only pain subsiding options that is grown naturally, as an herb. Instead of manipulating the symptoms of your illness, medical marijuana can completely get rid of the pain of a dulling sickness like cancer, AIDS or other chronic diseases. Medical marijuana is an all-natural medicine, free of additives, colors and preservatives.


For those who find themselves at the local natural food store, peering down the drug aisle at thousands of options to relieve pain, medical marijuana is the only logical solution. No other drug can be completely grown without adding a pill coating or some other unnatural substance to make consuming it easier.


With additives in unnatural pharmaceutical drugs, many patients see addition side effects. For example, Tylenol can lead to liver damage and aspirin has been linked to gastric bleeding , and even death. With medical marijuana, patients are consuming an herb in its natural form, leading to zero added side effects.


Moreover, countless pharmaceutical drugs have resulted in death as a result of the drug being misused, overused, mis-prescribed, due to adverse or unforeseen side effects, etc. Not a single known case exists of a man or woman dying solely from marijuana use. Now, with the legalization of medical marijuana in 15 US states and DC, this ancient herb that has become a modern medicine, is more pure, effective and safe than ever before.  To ensure safty and quality, medical marijuana is normally lab-tested before mmj dispensaries or caregivers can sell the meds to medical marijuana patients. In addition, registered medical marijuana patients in Colorado and other states that have legalized medical marijuana, now have safe and professional places to obtain meds and seek consultation at marijuana dispensaries or from caregivers.


As with other natural remedies and foods, we need to turn back to the basics. Medical marijuana has been used as a natural pain relieve for over 5,000 years. Its simplicity and organic nature brings medicine back to the basics—and can be used to help us avoid synthetic properties in modern medication.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.



Recreational Dispensaries in Colorado If you're coming to Colorado from out of town to experience the legal weed scene you're not alone. Thousands are flocking to the state to buy weed at one of the hundreds of recreational marijuana shops now open for business in the state.

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…

Dragon Chewer Marijuana Stash Jar | Cannabis Grinder Container Review

Dragon Chewer Marijuana Grinder Jar / Container Review While stopping by the +The Herbal Center, a Denver Dispensary on Broadway I came aross this MMJ innovation in the blossoming Colorado cannabis industry.  After requesting an eighth of White Shark medical marijuana, a caregiver onsite at the time handed me my cannabis in a Dragon Chewer medical marijuana grinder jar.  At first site the Dragon Chewer bud grinder container appears no different than the standard, plastic squeeze top cannabis jars used by most medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.  

Closer examination of the bud grinder jar reveals that the Dragon Chewer cannabis container is in fact much more than a simple plastic, squeez-top medical marijuana jar.  In fact, with the introduction of the Dragon Chewer medical marijuana grind container, the days of paying $40+ for a quality stash jar are over.    


As you can see in the pictures, the side of the pop top that faces the inside the Dragon Chewer stash jar has jagged tee…
