FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN California has experienced devastating fires over the last decade. These fires seem to be intensifying as 2018 was a particularly destructive year in the Golden State. The Camp Fire, the state’s most destructive, spread over 142,000 acres and razed 18,000 houses and buildings. Last summer, the Mendocino Complex Fire, which includes both the Ranch and River fires, burned an incredible 458,000 acres, while only destroying 280 structures. Unfortunately, several of those structures belonged to Aster Farms, a cannabis grow founded by husband and wife Julia Jacobson and Samuel Ludwig. Now, the Upper Lake cannabis company is rebuilding from the ashes of the Mendocino Complex Fire, calling their garden “a little oasis of green amidst moonscape.” It’s true the surrounding area has suffered utter devastation. Fortunately, Jacobson and Ludwig…

mind, body & soul

AS CANNABIS GAINS ACCEPTANCE legally and socially, more and more people are experiencing its myriad benefits. Athletes in particular are benefiting from marijuana’s ability to protect and restore the body. This month, we investigate the role of cannabis in athletic training and how it can reduce pain and inflammation, stimulate appetite, promote the quality and quantity of sleep, and even protect the brain from traumatic injury. The right training regimen, which includes cannabis, proper nutrition, stretching and a holistic approach to healing, can help athletes at any level achieve better results. And speaking of sports and pot, this month we talk to former NFL running back Ricky Williams, who was one of the first major sports figures to advocate for the medicinal benefits of cannabis. While playing in the NFL, Williams…

LEARN FROM ISRAEL When I read about how Israel is breaking ground in treating autism with cannabis [I was encouraged]. A neurologist in Jerusalem had begun experimenting with medical cannabis as a treatment for those with autism [based on the] marijuana plant’s two primary compounds: the psychoactive agent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), which works with the autistic mind. Israel has been at the forefront of medical marijuana research since modern health care began considering its merits. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, first identified THC in the early 1960s. It gives me hope as I myself am autistic. As a self-identifying hippie, I wanted to find a more natural way of controlling pain, as well as my anxiety, which is how I found my way to weed. Marijuana…

the price of doing business

NOW THAT JUST about everybody in America is growing cannabis, in their closets or on gigantic commercial farms, the price of weed is dropping everywhere. This is good news for consumers and patients, but it’s been a mixed bag for industry professionals and for the states in which they operate. Since Colorado first broke ground on legalization in 2014, the price of weed per pound has dropped a whopping 70 percent. In July 2017, in an effort to maintain revenue from cannabis sales, the state bumped up tax on all retail marijuana and marijuana-infused products, from 10 to 15 percent. Because the price of weed continued to fall, the expected gains from the tax hike were all but wiped out in the subsequent year. In Oregon, weed production has been through the…
