🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 ••• #TrinidadandTobogo 🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹 #PrimeMinister #DrKeithRowley and members of his Cabinet have been invited to attend an international cannabis conference to be held in #Jamaica next month, to help in their ongoing discussions on decriminalisation and possible legalisation of marijuana. Douglas Gordon, founder of CanEx Jamaica Business Conference and Expo, extended the open invitation to T&T’s policy makers during a telephone conversation with Guardian Media. The third annual CanEx conferences takes place in #MontegoBay , Jamaica, September 27 to 29. Keynote speakers for the event are former president of #Mexico , Vicente Fox, former television host in the #UnitedStates , #MontelWilliams , and Bruce Linton, founder of Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC). Gordon said he believes if government officials attend the conference their eyes will be opened to the medicinal and economic benefits of #marijuana and the need to address the laws surrounding it. “I had people who gave me a mouthful the first time I held this conference as to why what I was doing was anathema to good sense or being raised properly and these people have come full circle. “These people are now huge advocates for the industry. They understand not just the power of the medicine which is significant and that really is the main point but they also understand the economic opportunities to be unlocked by countries that have been otherwise challenged for a very long time,” Gordon said. “And when you put those two things together it is an incredible, not just compelling, argument that says you cannot wait any longer. I would encourage not just government ministers but also members of the medical fraternity, business people, potential investors, healthcare practitioners, cultivators, farmers, people in agriculture a wide section of individuals who should be looking at this industry,” he said. Gordon said especially given the medicinal benefits of marijuana, we have a “moral obligation” to move it forward responsibly. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 ••• #CBD coffee could be the perfect morning treat to get your day started without the worst parts of the #caffeine buzz. Did you know that 83% of Americans drink coffee regularly? In a fast paced world, with the pressures of life pulling us down, it is no wonder we need coffee, but also carry anxiety. Not only does coffee help wake you up in the morning, but it actually has more lot of health benefits than you might realize. However, adding a little CBD oil can increase those benefits even more. If you haven’t tried the blend of coffee and CBD oil, get ready to set your anxiety on snooze and energize your moods with a CBD latte that you’ll want to try tomorrow morning. Simply adding a dose of #CBDoil to your coffee can give you increased health benefits for your body, mind, and spirit. Both coffee and CBD oil can help you feel better, and when combined, they offer you more than just the average coffee! When you mix the benefits of coffee and the benefits of CBD oil, you get an incredible morning regime that is good for your whole body! It really is a match made in heaven. Although coffee has many benefits, the caffeine can increase stress hormones called cortisol. However, CBD oil can cause drowsiness in some people. Therefore, when you combine the two to create CBD coffee, you get the best of both worlds. #Increases energy while decreasing anxiety. While coffee increases your mood and energy, CBD oil relieves anxiety and stress. #CBD coffee could boost your mood. Both CBD oil and coffee boost your overall mood by increasing your serotonin levels (happy hormone). #Both have #antioxidant properties. #Antioxidants are needed to get rid of toxins in your body. They protect our #DNA and cells from damage, aid with cell regeneration and aging; The more antioxidants, the better. #CBD coffee is good for your brain. As coffee increases your brain function, CBD oil protects your neurons from degeneration in your brain. Therefore, coffee and CBD oil together could be even better for your mind. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 #HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 #Israeli researchers have found more compelling evidence that medical cannabis is an effective therapy for children on the autism spectrum. In this soon-to-be-published study in the journal #Neurology , researchers treated autistic children with high concentrations of #CBD , a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Conditions in 80% of the children improved. Alternatively, the children had not shown improvement with conventional drug therapies. The study was led by the director of pediatric neurology at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Hospital, Dr. Adi Aran, who treated the 60 children with a high-CBD #cannabisoil (20% CBD and 1% #THC ). The children were treated for at least seven months with the oil. After the treatment period, parents answered assessment questionnaires to characterize their child’s condition. Questions were asked about behavioral changes, #anxiety levels and ability to communicate Here’s what they reported: #80 % of parents noted a decrease in problematic behaviors, with 62% reporting significant improvements. #Half of the children had improved communication. #40 % reported significant decreases in anxiety. (Note: one-third of the study participants began the study with no anxiety.) Just as Israel is a pioneer in medical cannabis research, Aran is a pioneer in cannabinoid therapy for autism. Aran originally began a 2017 project to test 120 autistic children. It was the first study of its kind worldwide, and was made possible by the Israeli government’s funding and progressive approach to cannabis research. #AutismSpectrumDisorders are neurodevelopmental in nature, usually appearing in infancy or early childhood and lasting a lifetime. More severe cases have debilitating symptoms including compulsive, repetitive behaviors and impaired social skills and communication. Some children cannot speak at all. #Autism affects around 1% of people worldwide. The causes of autism are not understood and there is no cure and the prevalence is climbing. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com

In Glasgow, Scotland, an apartment door is kicked in by the drugs squad. In Afghanistan, a field of poppies is incinerated from the air. In Mexico, police corrupted by drug cartels are implicated in disappearances and massacres #TheWaronDrugs is generally presented as a global phenomenon. Each country has its own drug laws and enforces them as they see fit. Despite small regional differences, the world we are told has always been united in addressing the dangers of illicit drug use through law enforcement. This is a lie. When one traces back the history of what we now call the War on Drugs, one discovers it has a very specific origin: the United States. The global development of the drug war is inseparable from the development of #US imperialism, and indeed, is a direct outgrowth of that imperialism. Prior to the 19th century, drugs now illegal were widely used across the world. Remedies derived from opium and cannabis were used for pain relief, and less widely for "#recreation ." Queen Victoria herself was fond of both opium and cannabis, before being introduced to cocaine later in life. In the #American debate, drug addiction had been framed as an infection and contamination of white America by foreign influences. Now, that vision was internationalised. To protect white American moral purity, the supply of drugs from overseas had to be curtailed at their source. As the campaigner Richard P Hobson had it, "like the invasions and plagues of history, the scourge of narcotic drug addiction came out of #Asia " #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com

The Central African Republic has sworn in a new president. But many people still wonder what would have happened to the country if Barthelemy #Boganda had not been killed in a plane crash just before independence in 1959. Boganda was a Catholic priest who campaigned for freedom from the French. The country has suffered from political instability since independence and its leaders have failed in various ways. Many look back to Boganda and wonder how the Central African Republic might be different had he lived. According to current laws #Cannabis is illegal and there is only a limited amount of information about the drug laws in Central African Republic but it has been documented that the Aka (#Pygmy ) people regularly smoke cannabis to prevent internal infections. #HBCannU ~ Shifting the culture by expanding legal cannabis literacy amongst #HBCU students and alumni worldwide. 🌱 #BlackInCannabis ~ To connect, fertilize and grow the black entrepreneurial presence within cannabis by bringing awareness to the global black cannabis experience.🌱 #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 #HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 •••••• The #CentralAfricanRepublic , a landlocked country, borders Sudan to the east, the #DemocraticRepublicoftheCongo and the Republic of the Congo to the south, #Cameroon to the west, and #Chad to the north. Its land area is 240,000 sq. mi. The capital is #Bangui . The country is mostly savannas, but includes a #SaheloSudanian zone in the north and a southern equatorial forest. Two thirds of the CAR sits in the #Ubang River basin, which flows into the #CongoRiver . This, in turn, flows into Lake Chad. Adamawa-Eastern speakers settled in the CAR’s territory between 1,000 BD and 1,000 AD. Bantu speaking people settled in southwestern CAR. Along the Oubangi, Sudanic speaking populations also settled the area. Most who live in the CAR speak Adamawa-Easter or #Bantu languages. A minority speak Sudanic languages. Until the 19th century, people in the CAR had little contact with Abrahamic religions due to them living beyond Africa’s Sudanic zone. During the early 1800s, Muslim traders began to penetrate the area and developed relationships with local leaders for trade purposes. This arrival was peaceful. After 1850, well-armed soldiers and slave traders arrived, mostly from Sudan, Cameroon, Chad, Dar al-Kuti, and #Nzakara . Much of eastern Central Africa Republic’s population was “#exported ” and the area is still sparsely populated. Central Africa Republic’s most important export is #diamonds which account for 40-55 percent of exports. It is estimated 30-50 percent of the diamonds that are produced are secretly exported. #anthropologist say the #Pygmy people of the Central African Republic use cannabis to ward off parasitic intestinal worms. Ed Hagen of Washington State University Vancouver surveyed almost all the adult Aka about 400 "pygmy" people living along the #LobayeRiver in one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes to determine how non-Western populations use marijuana and found about 70% of the men and 6% of the women smoked. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com

He forms a political party, #MESAN or Mouvement pour l'Évolution Sociale de l'Afrique Noire (Movement for the Social Evolution of Black Africa), which he left the priesthood for Ana is well placed to win control of the country after independence in 1960. #Boganda hopes that the new nation will comprise the whole of French Equatorial #Africa , but #Chad , #Gabon and the #RepublicofCongo reject his proposals for union. He therefore accepts the proposed #French constitution for the Central African Republic on its own. But Boganda dies, in 1959, before full independence is achieved. After Boganda’s death in March 1959, David Dacko, a government member who claimed a family relationship to Boganda, became president. #UbangiShari , renamed the Central African Republic, was granted independence on August 13, 1960. Dacko permitted the French to provide the new country with assistance in the areas of trade, defense, and foreign relations.

🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 •••• #Marijuana products for #Ohioans with a medical need were supposed to be on dispensary shelves in less than a month. Though that deadline won’t be met, state officials say the new program remains on track, just moving slower than outlined in the law Gov. John Kasich signed in June 2016.  The program authorizes use by patients with 21 conditions, including #cancer or #chronic pain, in the form of #edibles , #oils , #patches and #vaporizing . Patients and their caregivers will be allowed to possess up to a 90-day supply. Smoking or home growing it is barred. Here’s where key parts of Ohio’s #medicalmarijuana program stand:  Few growers inspected: Just three of 26 licensed growers have received their operations certificates from the state, while five more have inspections scheduled this month. Processor applications await checks: Only seven processors have been licensed, while six more licenses are awaiting background and tax compliance checks. The state expects to license up to 40 processors.  Dispensaries given licenses: In June, pharmacy officials announced 56 dispensary licenses where medical marijuana would be sold, but it’s unclear when and how much product will be on shelves for patients.  Area university could house testing lab: State regulators in June issued provisional licenses to #CentralStateUniversity (@centralstate87 ) and #HockingTechnicalCollege to set up medical marijuana testing labs. The two were the only public institutions to apply for testing lab licenses. Seven private companies have also applied for testing licenses. Doctors continue to be certified: As of this week, 222 physicians are now approved by the state medical board to recommend marijuana for patients. Patient registry on hold: The #OhioBoardofPharmacy has yet to open an online patient registry.  #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 • The #prohibition of cannabis and even hemp comes with an evil twist. As history now shows, the ban was born of overt racism. One man, #HarryAnslinger , appointed the first commissioner of the #FederalBureauofNarcotics in 1930, was almost singularly responsible for making cannabis illegal in America. Dive into his life story and it becomes clear that the petty, small-minded ex-Prohibition cop used his own deep-seated racism to transform a small, underfunded, undermanned, more-or-less purposeless federal agency into a personal fiefdom through which he dispensed his skewed version of justice to those he wrongly felt deserved it. So what is the blunt truth about why marijuana was made illegal? Was it really even a problem demanding prohibition? Spoiler alert: It wasn’t. So, why has cannabis been kept illegal ever since? By making it and keeping it illegal, who, exactly, was and is the law really trying to punish – and for what? According to the #NAACP 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health that studied disparities in drug sentencing, “About 17 million whites and 4 million #AfricanAmericans reported having used an illicit drug within the last month. Though African-Americans and whites use drugs at similar rates, the imprisonment rate of African-Americans for drug charges is almost six times that of whites.” Further, the report found that African-Americans represent 12.5% of illicit drug users, but 29% of suspects arrested for drug offenses and 33% of inmates incarcerated in state facilities for drug offenses. That disparity is not a coincidence. It was built into the marijuana prohibition laws at the start. As future Blunt Truths installments will describe, Anslinger wasn’t the first person to use racism to justify instituting marijuana prohibition laws. But he was the first to use racism effectively, creating a powerful racist myth about cannabis. Then he manipulated the media to indoctrinate that myth into America’s hearts and minds, crafting a dark reality about cannabis that persists today. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #WEAREBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 •••• A health store with cannabis-only products is coming to the capital region next week. Aurora 225 #CBD & #Hemp will be located on the corner of #HighlandRoad and #AirlineHighway . "All of our products come from hemp so you don't need any medicinal license or anything like that," said store manager Hunter Poiencot. Industrial hemp is in the same species as marijuana but with almost none of the intoxicating chemical #THC . The store's products are imported from outside Louisiana and are made with another chemical found in both hemp and marijuana, CBD. Outside of #Louisiana CBD oil is a popular therapy for a number of ailments from anxiety to epilepsy. Poiencot shop even offers products for pets. "They sell #CBDoil in head shops but we have the first CBD boutiques in the state," he said. When the state legislature legalized marijuana-derived CBD oil two years ago, the law specifically limited production of the oil to #LSU and @SouthernU_br. From there only a small number of licensed pharmacies would be allowed to fill prescriptions. Poiencot may have found a way around the regulations. He said he's not limited by state law because his products are derived from hemp instead of marijuana. "Our products are just as good," he said. Poiencot's family also owns and operates a CBD boutique in #Houma . #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
🍃 @HBCannU 🍃 #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy 🍃🍃✊🏾✊🏾🍃🍃 •••• Professional athlete-turned-cannapreneur isn’t a new story. However, the way one approaches the cannabis game is. We’ve seen @NFL Veteran Eugene Monroe’s advocacy with his emphasis on cannabis education; you’ve got @NBA Veteran @AlHarrington3 making huge moves with his brand, @Violalabs ; and now we’ve got #NBAChampion @Matt_Barnes9 doing special things with, well, everything and everyone. Matt Barnes recently kicked off his 5th annual @ATHLETESVSCANCER All-Star Weekend: a three-day event aimed at raising awareness for cancer research and helping its many victims. Started in 2008, the year after his mother died of cancer, #ATHLETESVSCANCER has evolved over time through a three-stage process. “We’ve done multiple screenings and health fairs. Then we transitioned to paying for anything #cancer related, whether that be hospice, funerals, surgeries, medications, or bills. And now we’re transitioning to the final step, which I’m most excited about: Creating a scholarship program for kids who beat cancer and want to go to college,” Barnes tells Leafly. While this is the 5th #AVC All-Star Weekend, it’s the first year that’ll include a cannabis component, #Smoke4ACure , a celebration of the cannabis plant and its medicinal benefits. Considering his passion behind #cancerresearch and the search for a cure, it makes sense that Matt, a 23-year user of the plant, would gravitate towards the cannabis industry, a business he has learned can be dirty, yet rewarding. Since his 4/20 round table for Bleacher Report, Matt’s phone has been constantly ringing with opportunities. “People are really starting to come to me to endorse their brands and help get the message out.” As a brand ambassador of #Viola , as well as being the first athlete ever endorsed by RAW Papers, a deal he (BREAKING!) inked just last month, it’s clear that Barnes is already making some serious moves within the industry. #HistoricallyBlackCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com

The ribbon-cutting ceremony signified the start of a new era for the use of medical marijuana in Jamaica, with brothers Karibe and Dwayne McKenzie at the helm. The first company named #EPICAN was granted a license to cultivate, process and retail medical grade marijuana by the #CannabisLicensingAuthority (#CLA ) in Jamaica. EPICAN offers a product rooted in Jamaica soil, the newspaper reported. The McKenzie brothers spent three years educating local farmers in methods that meet international growing standards in an effort to bring marijuana farming in Jamaica out of the shadows and on the global stage.
