Letter From The Editor

As always, advocacy and activism plays an important role over at Edibles List. I had the privileged opportunity to participate in local advocacy last month. For this issue’s Letter From the Editor, I wanted to share with you my letter to the Mayor of El Monte presented at a City Council meeting in late September. Dear Mayor of El Monte and City Council members, First and foremost, I would like to thank you for opening up the floor to discuss the possibility of licensing medical cannabis businesses in the city of El Monte. My name is B. Le Grand and I am the CEO and President of Edibles List, LLC, a Los Angeles-based business. I run an educational magazine and several medical cannabis websites and events. I have seen the many changes occur in the cannabis industry over the last 7 years. Most importantly, we’ve seen progress, acceptance, licensing, taxation and the overall evolution of the only new industry since the tech industry, established less than 30 years ago. I started my company with a need for information, and I began filling that gap with a Yelp-like website for edibles in 2009. I quickly learned that there was a severe lack of education about cannabis and its known medical benefits. There was no where to go for patients looking for real starting information when it came to edibles and using cannabis for cancer and chemotherapy. So I launched Edibles Magazine to help educate the growing cannabis community. My magazine is now in 5 medical states with subscribers worldwide. What I’ve seen in this industry is the stabilization of the dispensary and manufacturing markets as well as economic benefits and improvements to funding for local infrastructure. While Los Angeles is still figuring out their licensing structure, places like Colorado have now sold just short of 1 billion dollars of legal cannabis last year, of which $135 million went to taxes, and $35 million of that went to schools. Not only does cannabis provide and create an array of new jobs, in Colorado crime went down nearly 20% since the legalization of cannabis. Closer to home we have San Francisco, which has allowed for licensing to dispensaries for over a decade. In 2012, San Francisco reported an estimated $41 million in medical cannabis sales, of which $3.5 million went to taxes, and this is before the marijuana dispensaries zoning recently opened up allowing for more pot shops and before the sales tax rate went up.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

While LA officials have shown its reluctance to open up licensing to marijuana businesses, between 20112013, $8.6 million dollars in marijuana taxes from dispensaries were taken in and reported by the city of Los Angeles. Imagine what the overall tax revenue will be for the 6th largest economy in the world, let alone local tax to the cities that open up licensing.


In the areas that have allowed licensing and dispensary storefronts, I consistently have dispensary managers and owners testifying that the mandatory heightened security has cleaned up the streets and unwanted trespassers, rather than attracting crime like some would believe. While numbers and statistics may turn a skeptic into a believer, the most compelling arguments are the success stories associated with cannabis. Many of the feature stories I’ve highlighted in my magazine involve I


the extreme and almost overnight success with cannabis infused products and CBD (cannabidiol - a nonpsychoactive profile of the plant) for children, veterans, and cancer patients alike. Some of the most amazing stories I have are: •Cannabis taking a 4 year old’s 600 seizures a month (from Dravet Syndrome) down to 1 a week •Cannabis miraculously shrinking both benign and malignant brain tumors in innocent children •Cannabis allowing Veterans with PTSD to live a normal life •Taking my Uncle’s Lymphoma from Stage 4 terminal to complete remission •Nearly curing my 12 year old Husky’s degenerative arthritis •Cannabis curing my beautician’s dementia and other Uncle’s dementia •Cannabis personally helps my debilitating back pain, debilitating menstrual cycles and PTSD The list goes on of success stories with cannabis. While we might not have the Federal green light on cannabis medical studies, everyone in the cannabis industry has seen exactly what the medical benefits are. Furthermore, while the government and DEA says there is no medical benefit to marijuana, the Federal government currently issues federal medical marijuana to two patients, and has been from 1976 to today. Additionally, the Federal government owns the patent on CBD, domestically and internationally, for cannabis as an antioxidant and as a neuroprotectant. That patent is licensed out to a pharmaceutical company producing the test drug Epiodilex for epilepsy, which is soon to be released in the public markets, but can’t until cannabis gets rescheduled. The proof that there is medical benefit to cannabis is there. And with all these facts and all this passion for cannabis and its benefits, I still can’t get my own Veteran father, with PTSD, diabetes, extremely bad heart health, blood clots in his lungs and in his legs, a hernia, early onset dementia and more, to try CBD or any form of natural medical cannabis to help improve his health. Until elected officials like yourselves begin to allow licensing and permitting for local dispensaries, manufacturers and distributors, there will still be a stigma associated with cannabis, its production and its medical usage.

I hope that I have made a compelling argument in considering the allowing of licensure in El Monte. Understand that if El Monte moves forward with cannabis licensing, it will produce a domino effect in Southern California. We have seen it work in places like Colorado, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska. Locally we know it works in places like San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, San Diego, Adelanto and Desert Hot Springs. How much longer will it be before the rest of California jumps on the bandwagon?

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

While cannabis permitting will not be an easy task, it would be better to be a leader, setting an example on this forefront, helping other municipalities understand that there is tax, economic, and health benefits to medical cannabis.

U.S. Attorney General Says Cannabis is NOT a Gateway Drug LC Squared The federal government’s leading law enforcement official took a popular anti-legalization fallacy to town by openly declaring that cannabis does not open doors to try harder drugs. U.S. Attorney General Loretta was a special guest speaker at a town hall for heroin awareness on Sept 20th in Richmond, Kentucky where she discussed this issue with a group of high school students. When a student asked her if she believed that recreational use of cannabis would lead to opioid abuse, she responded, “When we talk about heroin addiction, we usually, as we have mentioned, are talking about individuals that started out with a prescription drug problem, and then because they need more and more, they turn to heroin. It isn’t so much that marijuana is the step right before using prescription drugs or opioids.” She also added, “it is true that if you tend to experiment with a lot of things in life, you may be inclined to experiment with drugs, as well. But it’s not like we’re seeing that marijuana is a specific gateway.” To build on this argument, she stated earlier that the leading cause behind the heroin epidemic is in fact, prescription drugs. “When you look at someone that, for example, has a heroin problem, it very often started with a prescription drug problem. Something totally legal. Something in every medicine cabinet. Something you can have prescribed to you in good faith by a doctor,” she said. This is a remarkable turn of her views on cannabis since she was first sworn into office in January of 2015 when she vocally declared her opposition to marijuana legalization. Furthermore, her admission coincide with the findings of the National Institute on Drug Abuse which states that the majority of people who use cannabis do not go on to use other, harder drugs. Further research and studies back her declarations in which the Journal of the American Medical Association reports a 25% decrease of opioid related deaths in states with cannabis legalization and that Monitoring the Future found that more college students who are using cannabis have become less reliant on painkillers. With countless government sanctioned studies debunking the gateway myth that demonized the plant for almost a century, this long awaited public confirmation from one of our highest ranking law enforcement officials may indeed be the closest thing yet to an official stamp of approval by the federal government.

TALKING TOPICALS with Gar Gar Souders As topicals gain more notoriety, many people have questions about how to get the most of their medicine. Gar Souders has been researching the effects and formulations of cannabisinfused topicals for over a decade. He is here to help and educate us with a little Q&A. Dear Gar, I can't smoke and would like to find something in addition to edibles that I could use for pain to help with my severe neuropathy. Sheila, West Covina, CA Hi Sheila, You are certainly on the right track.  Topical preparations with high dosages of both THC and CBD have been shown to have excellent effects with neuropathy.  Topicals are capable of relieving pain quickly, as well as improving blood flow to the area.  Add a high quality lotion or salve to the area and massage gently.  Apply as needed for relief.  Keep using your edibles, but add a good infused topical lotion to your daily care for pain management. Hey Gar,  My job requires a lot of detail, so I need to know if I can use a topical without getting high at work.  Dale, Medford, OR Hi Dale, I get that question a lot.  A topical is not processed by the body in the same way that it is by using edibles or smoking.  Topicals work via the body's natural CB2 receptors, which are responsible for the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis.  CB2 receptors work to reduce inflammation, whereas CB1 receptors control the psychoactive effect and are not found externally on the body.  That makes infused topicals a great way to go for your pain relief at work or at home. 

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

Dear Gar, I am 82 years old and just got a medical recommendation.  My grandson said that I should try a topical on my hands for arthritis.  Elvie, Salinas, CA Dear Elvie, Your grandson is right.  A topical cream, rubbed on your hands when they hurt, can bring amazing relief.  There are many choices, but find one containing both THC and CBD.  Try more than one if you need to.  Find the ones you like that ease or stop the pain.  It should bring you surprising relief with no side effects.  If you have a question for Gar, please write to us at Gar Souders has been researching the effects and formulations of cannabis- infused topicals for over a decade.  He is the founder of CannaTopics and also a member of several procannabis organizations.

In this month’s Policy Update, we take a closer look at the California Adult Use Marijuana Act (also known as AUMA or Prop 64). Spanning 62 pages, AUMA takes a comprehensive approach, covering personal use, medical use, regulation and safety, taxation, criminal offences, and industrial hemp.


Edibles Magazine Issue 28

makes it legal for adults 21 years or older to POSSESS or transport up to 1 OUNCE of flower, or 8 grams of concentrate, as well as GROW up to 6 PLANTS


While covering the entire initiative would likely fill up this entire magazine, instead we’ll cover the main sections, focusing on pros and cons, and try to dispel as much of the misinformation that is being passed around. We will also raise a few questions which are not explicitly covered by the initiative, and may have to be decided in the courts.

Adult Use Marijuana Act

legalized cannabis, it conflicts with the definition of the word legal, and perpetuates the cannabis stigma, especially when compared to alcohol. When a single person can go to the liquor store and pick up as much alcohol as they need to cater a 30 person party, but if they wish to bring cannabis they would need to bring several people with them, or risk a misdemeanor charge if they go alone. There is no clear indication of an edibles possession limit, and how the 8g concentrate limit will be calculated with edibles. The Medical Use section is one of the most controversial of all, because it solidifies sections of the recently passed Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA), thus invalidating any other previous voter initiatives, i.e., Prop 215. This changes who can write a recommendation letter and under what conditions. We have tried to get clarifications from several lawyers on why this section was included, as it only reiterates parts of MCRSA, and were not able to get an explanation.

The Regulation and Safety section creates an infrastructure very similar to the medical market regulating the cultivation, distribution, transport, storage, manufacture, processing and sale. From the administrative aspect, to enforcement, appeals, quality assurance, testing as well as local control, making sure as much of the intent of the initiative is spelled out, Pros: This is a welcome change from rather than left to the legislators to decide for us. the status quo, as one would not need to get a recommendation letter Pros: Has strict anti-monopoly provisions, meant to in order to possess small amounts of prevent a big tobacco takeover. It allows for vertical cannabis or grow at home. It goes an integration (holding more than 1 type of license), as extra step to say that cities cannot ban well as creates microbusiness and delivery licenses, indoor personal cannabis growing, which will help the smaller cottage industry and even however it does allow for outdoor individuals enter the market without a large amount bans. It also has no limit on how much of capital up front. your 6 plants can yield, and you are allowed to keep everything you grow. It allows for on site consumption licensing, which opens up the possibilities of cannabis clubs, and other Cons: While a possession limit is the cannabis friendly businesses, as long as they do not practice in every other state which serve alcohol or tobacco. Starting off with Personal Use, Prop 64 makes it legal for adults 21 years or older to possess or transport up to 1 ounce (28.5g) of flower, or 8 grams of concentrate, as well as grow up to 6 plants. I

The Taxation section has a great deal of rumors and misinformation surrounding it, from the tax rate, to what the money will be used for, including fears it will turn into a slush fund. There will be a new 15% excise tax that any retail shop (medical and recreational) will have to pay, that is in addition to the state sales tax - medical patients will not need to pay sales tax - as well as any city or county tax which they can impose, and an additional cultivation tax ($9.25 per oz of flower, and $2.75 for leafs). We’ve seen how high taxes in some states contributed to a flourishing black market, and the effect these taxes could have on the effort to eradicate the black market in California is unknown.

Perhaps the biggest implication of the initiative is decriminalization and retroactive sentencing. Anyone currently serving a sentence for a cannabis conviction, who would not have been guilty of an offense or who would have been guilty of a lesser offense under AUMA, would be able to apply for re-sentencing or dismissal of their offenses. This is regardless of if their conviction was by trial or by open or negotiated plea.

We’re already starting to see the ramifications as some lawyers have pushed their cannabis cases till after the election in hopes that what would be a potential felony charge now, would only be a misdemeanor, and is therefore more The money from the taxes, as well as licensing fees will likely to get dismissed. first go to funding the regulation and enforcement.

Master Grower, Author, Activist, and Philosopher... meet Ed Rosenthal, the "Guru of Ganja".

Freak Out! with the "Guru of Ganja!"

Rosenthal is a horticulturist, who has risen to prominence in the cannabis world. Originally from New York, his dedication to the craft of cultivation is well known and respected. Ed is heralded worldwide as a top authority on cannabis. With more than 45 years in the industry, he has written more than a dozen books about marijuana cultivation and social policy that have collectively sold more than one million copies. His writing on cannabis was the first of this subject to be reviewed by the highly regarded New York Times. Most noteworthy is his passionate activism for standing up for the right to consume. I

Who is Ed Rosenthal? Many of those within the cannabis world know him as the author of the Bible on growing, “Ed Rosenthal Marijuana Grower’s Handbook”, which has sold thousands of copies. If you wanted to learn how to cultivate, this was the one book you needed in your cannabis library. With his work as a master grower, activist, and philosopher, he became an inspiration to those who were part of the ganja lifestyle. But who is Ed? We hope that we can all experience the “Freak Out” with Ed and what aspects are meaningful to him and what makes him the Guru of Ganja. On a mild sunny day as the summer season was coming to an end, we found ourselves along the border of Oakland and Piedmont, California. We were invited into an outdoor garden that included a lovely Koi pond as we sat down with The Guru of Ganja, Mr. Ed Rosenthal.



With his experience and passion Rosenthal was a contributor to High Times Magazine back in the 1980’s and 90’s, where his outlook and insight resonated with the MJ aficionados. Many of us became in awe of his deep knowledge of cultivation. I asked him for today’s tip for anyone seeking to grow; Rosenthal says to “grow on the backs of others”. Meaning learn from other growers to expand your experience in cultivation, learn and pass it on as we all should know how this plant is able to proliferate with excellence. His favorite strain to personally partake in would be “one he could take in an IV”, he stated with a twinkle in his eye.

myriad of outlets, Ed has a disdain for the corporations of cannabis and feels the green “boom” of business is taking us away from the heart of the plant.

He sees himself as a consultant and recovery master, assisting those whose grows need an overhaul. After taking on the responsibility of restructuring many companies to success, both across America and internationally, Rosenthal has garnered leagues of devoted followers. The demand for his time and knowledge as a consultant is abundant and he has contributed his knowledge to many publications, websites, and many speaking engagements throughout the country. But as he is in high demand by a

could not sentence him as his first conviction had been completed. The heinous aspects of the charges turned into a five year ridicule of the so called judicial system and in 2007 the final convictions were stated and Rosenthal attorneys did appeal.

As part of his journey, back in the early 2000’s Rosenthal was deputized by the City of Oakland, California to grow Cannabis for medical use. But so ironically in 2002 the Federal government arrested Ed for cultivation of cannabis, as the Feds did not choose to recognize the authority of each state to regulate the use of medical cannabis. As we know medical cannabis was voted to legal fruition back in 1996 for California. Even more of a social debacle they convicted him on the charges as the Feds denied the facts to the jury that Rosenthal had the proper authority by the City of Oakland to cultivate. With an appeal it was overturned, but the Feds once again choose to convict Rosenthal and in the end they

At this time in Ed’s life his expansion of his outreach is an exciting revelation as he has developed a new exciting edible. “Stardust” is a cannabis powder that is in nitrogen packets of 15 milligrams. The nitrogen keeps It fresh for up to a years and on the packet it shares how mixing in with coffee, teas and foods are simple, no fuss and effective. We were in the Rosenthal Garden amongst the array of light deprivation plants I

Each of us there were instructed about the best ways to infuse with the new edible and how it assimilates into the system. We were told that in most cases it takes about 30 minutes to take effect and that adding “Stardust” to most anything from drinks, sauces, most any type of food product would be beneficial to the ingestor. On to the pizza it was sprinkled and we enjoyed the taste as well as the stimulating conversation with the Guru of Ganja. In his development Ed wanted to see something that would be convenient to ingest by anyone and

in a milligram count that could be easy to adjust for most people. The price point was a factor as well and a suggested retail for the packet is around $5. Rosenthal could see the growth of acceptance of infused products and knew that the supporters would be seeking items that would work into an active lifestyle. Cannabis users are expanding their desire to infuse responsibly in different situations and something such as “Stardust” seems to be a great addition for the consumers. It is well packaged, with a great shelf life and being that it will blend by taste to most any flavor and mixes in just about any food or drink products, what more could you ask for.

Regarding the state of cannabis through the Guru’s eyes, Ed see’s there should be no police overseeing the use of cannabis, Growing, distribution and consumption of cannabis should be in the future civilly regulated, what a revelation! That we as cannabis supporters should be self-reliant of the responsible acts of consumption and not look to municipal or Federal authorities to govern personal cannabis use. Remember it was a medicine for thousands of years until the 1930’s when our right to consume was restricted and the prohibition of cannabis was established. By the way it is only a plant and does the system

At this time Ed feels that in the future concentrates will become more popular with consumers. and dabbing activity will overtake the desire for flower based smoking. But he does expect respect for the flower bud to continue. As we observe how the levels of intensity in concentrates creates, over a period of time, a dependency for a higher level of infusion.

With this personal mantra of civil selfreliance, Rosenthal has been inspired by the words and music of the singer songwriter Pete Seeger, whose song “Good Morning America” became an anthem for America, freedom and grass roots pride. Seegers’ heartfelt words resonated with a generation of down to earth people. Ed is inspired by music and the power of the words and while sitting by the Koi pond discussing the community and direction of cannabis he had an intense thought. Whether it was the “Stardust”, Ed Rosenthal pre-rolls or internet connectivity we had a hard time linking to a website that he was intent of showing us. We went inside to his private office and he proceeded to log on to his computer to search for The Mothers of Inventions song Freak Out!

Stardust by Ed Rosenthal. California. Keiko Beatie. Instant THC

Ed wanted to make edible infusion simple and easy for everyone to enjoy and he has achieved his goal. I tried it with a fruit smoothie and it took about 30 minutes for the effects to take place with an enjoyable level of infusion. I also had it sprinkled on a cheese pizza while spending time with Ed at his home in the Oakland area. The Stardust powders were so easy to use, sprinkle, and appreciate, for the effectiveness of the product as well as the ease of the application. The retail price will be at close to $5 pre-packet and they do have a case package with a number of individual packets available to keep you on top of things. A big plus with Stardust is the travel aspect, you’ll be able to pack and go with your Stardust tucked away in the secret places. So when you’d like to make it easy with a clean, well tested product that will mix with most anything, use Stardust! I

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

The innovation of Master Grower Ed Rosenthal has come forth with an exciting new edible. Stardust is a powdered THC in 15 mg packets. Stabilized with nitrogen to remain fresh for over a year, the THC powder can be mixed in most any food or drink. Coffee and tea are the most convenient items for infusion, and that is what the packaging suggests. There is not a specific flavor or taste to the Stardust, so sprinkle, mix, or blend it as you wish.



Nature's Nurse. California. Tanganyika. Blossom Bar.

I couldn’t wait to try the Nature Nurse Blossom Bar, simply based on the fact that an actual nurse made the product I was testing. I felt confident that America’s most trusted profession wouldn’t let me down and it definitely didn’t. The packaging is absolutely going to be distinctive and I can already see this turning into a trustworthy brand. I thought it was medicated deodorant when I first grabbed the Blossom Bar, but after carefully reading the label I realized it was a topical that you can put wherever you have aches or pains. The first place I tried it was on the bottom of my feet because I had been on them all day filming, and it seemed to work relaxing my entire body and relieving the burning sensation I was having. I absolutely love how simple it is to apply the topical. I didn’t have to stick my hand in a jar or tube, rub it together and then apply. All I had to do was take the top off, wind the bottom, and apply more. It was so effortless and I really appreciated that. The scent is faint, and can easily be worn by itself or underneath your favorite fragrance. Apply anytime anywhere, and voila…bye bye pain. Of course there are many topical products to choose from, but if you want one that is made with an extra dose of love then try Nature Nurse today.

Nature Nurse. California. Tanganyika. Chocolate.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

Obviously one of the perks of this job is to try all of the latest greatest products of this amazing industry. Well chocolate is a constant staple on my taste buds, so reviewing them has become like a second language for me. When I saw Nature Nurse, and all of its packaging glory I knew I couldn’t wait to try this brand. This deep dark chocolate is all natural and 100% organic, which is what I love the most about it. I also love the fact that you have a CBD option for those lovers of the plant who don’t necessarily like the psychoactive effects of cannabis, and it also has CO2 extract infused version with THC for those who don’t mind the effects at all. Everyone seems to walk away happy from this amazing line of confections.


For me the best part of the product was that knowing that the entire package was only 75 mg. Micro dosing is becoming increasingly popular. I can eat a 1000 mg brownie in one sitting and be down for the count the rest of the day, or I can slowly eat a piece of Nature Nurse throughout the day and still be extremely productive. This product is great for the elderly, children, veterans, and also for those suffering from debilitating illnesses. It even gives you information about your endocannabinoid system to read, right on the back of the package that everyone should know, but sadly, usually don’t. If that made you curious enough to seek out these products just to see what they say and you end up buying them, then I not only have I done my job, but you’re sure to end up feeling happy too. I


Kings Blend Citrus Drink. California. Tanganyika. Kings Blend Citrus hybrid drink is the latest cannabis infused thirst quencher to hit the market. When I first got the bottle I thought we had finally reached that pivotal moment that we all know is coming where cannabis infused beer is going to be the new trend. Well even though the glass has the traditional beer look it is so completely far from the beer taste, which had me doing a standing ovation in the middle of my living room. This tasty concoction powered by Apple Farms smells like a lime/ginger ale soda almost. Fizz and the gingery scent were the first impressions that I got of this intriguing drink. Heavily Carbonated with the consistency taste of a Sprite including that bite that hits the back of the throat as it glides down to belly-land. This really does make you feel grown like you're drinking a beer, but it won’t get you sloppy wasted or have you sweating when you really shouldn’t be. The fact that this is 100 mg of a hybrid strain of awesomeness just seemed to call out to me over and over again. I drank this over dinner and conversation, and before I knew it the whole thing was gone. It has a slight cannabis aftertaste that reminded me of a baby dab, so that helped me anticipate or gauge what my high would be like by the end of the night. I wouldn’t be saying it if it wasn’t true, but I really enjoyed this drink. Knowing that the Kottonmouth Kings stand behind it with their reputation helped seal the deal for me. I can’t wait to try the other flavors, so if you know where to find them be sure to let me know how they taste!

Tanganyika. Believe me when I tell you that good hash makes the world go round. It doesn’t really, but I know It helps out a lot. Bone Head Hash are my new best buds mostly figuratively, but I’m working on the physical part as I type this. There hash smells so dank when you open the jar. It just smells like it was taken from a strain that was sticky, dense, and super dank all at the same time. The potent strain that I reviewed was called Royal Hawaiian, but I’m so incredibly curious to see what other options they have available. It comes in 1-gram jars that are so cute and perfect for travel. It fit right into my purse for those days I want to spice up my joints when out and about.   Opening the jar not only greets you with an aroma of cannabis, but it has this brown crumble that you can keep in big chunks or easily break down even more. The way I consumed it was by sprinkling some of the brown crystals over a bed of fresh JFK or Juicy Fruit Kush, rolled it up, and the marriage was something completely out of the Ganja Gods playbook. I’m so serious guys, this had me putting out my perfectly rolled joint after a few puffs, and trust me I do THIS for a living so my tolerance is higher than most. All in all thanks for sharing, and I definitely want to try more, so check them out guys and tell them Edibles List sent you. I

Bone Head Hash. California.



Cannavis. California and Oregon. Patrick Ian Moore.

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Cannavis I recently had the opportunity to try out the Cannavis Syrups in the 0.5FL OZ size test tubes, which each contain 50MG of THC. I wasn’t totally sure what to expect before tasting these. They’re certainly titled correctly, as Syrups, because they’re thick, sticky, and sweet. It looked like the kind of thing that would taste be the flavoring poured over shaved ice and snow cones and that’s exactly how it tasted — with a semi-subtle cannabis aftertaste that was not exactly unpleasant. This product is sugar free, gluten free, kosher, vegan, Non-GMO, and lab tested. First I tried the Peach flavored syrup. It’s strong tasting and very sweet. This might be a bit too powerful on the palette for some users, and it really is quite a bit like drinking the Slurpee flavoring all by itself. If you don’t happen to have a snow cone machine on hand at home, the syrup can easily be added to ginger ale, or any lemon-lime soda to help tone it down. The effects are very nice. The relaxing feelings come on slowly and in a time release fashion, especially if you consume by sipping on a cocktail instead of shooting the whole tube. I tried the Blackberry flavor next, about two hours later. Doubling the dose put me on the couch for the rest of the evening and enabled me to mellow out and enjoy a few hours of Netflix uninterrupted. If you’re an extremist, you’ll probably just do the test tubes as super sweet shots, and that’s great. If you’re a bit more reserved when it comes to sweetness, I’d recommend pouring it into soda over ice, stirring it up, and enjoying the drink as you casually sip it. As it says right on the label: “Lean Back, and Relax”.

Drip Ice Cream. Oregon. Keiko Beatie.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

Recently while visiting the beautiful area of Portland, Oregon we met with the makers of Drip Ice Cream. The handmade, pure, organic, infused ice cream that is taking the Pacific Northwest ice cream lovers to a blissfully chilly new nirvana. Drip Ice Cream has homespun, heartfelt thought put into each cup with every item procured directly from the source. Farmers, dairies, beekeepers, and other natural and organic purveyors is what Drip Ice Cream gathers together to make an incredible, infused frozen treat. When ice cream melts it drips, and that’s exactly where Drip Ice Cream gets it’s name!


The flavors I was delighted to try were Salted Caramel and Lemon Zest, which is a vegan version. The creamy texture of the vanilla was wonderful and the handmade salted caramel is one of the best I’ve ever had. This was infused for the cup at 15 mg and it was labeled in 5 mg increments. You could taste the care in the making of this fine dessert and I was excited to taste the vegan Lemon Zest. The list of ingredients for this frosty vegan treat are: coconut milk, coconut cream, agave nectar, lemon juice, vanilla paste, cannabis extract, vanilla extract, lemon zest, salt, and guar gum. The Salted Caramel contents are: milk, cream, sugar, dairy blend (whey, milk protein, fat free dry milk), unbleached flour, palm oil, cannabis extract, vanilla extract, cocoa, and chocolate. They also have 75 mg cup sizes and I’m looking forward to trying the Cookies and Cream, and the Honey Lavender flavors in the future. I


Casa Luna Organic Chocolate Bar. California. Lindsey Hitt.

This was a top shelf chocolate bar, even without the cannabis. Smooth and slow melting as all fine chocolate should be. The Casa Luna bar is segmented into six 20mg pieces. Each piece is about 5 grams of chocolate and enough to medicate for a little over an hour. Savory dark chocolate tang is followed by a minty cannabis taste. This chocolate bar is almost reminiscent of Andes Mints with a smoother texture. As a chocolate lover, my immediate desire was to eat the entire bar. Personally experiencing menses and slight dysmenorrhea (PMS) this was the perfect solution. I am a big believer that mental stress can put further stress on physical problems. I found this chocolate bar to lighten the mental stress, almost balancing hormones and releasing tension — possibly both at the same time. This is my personal experience at 5’5” early 30s, and 125 lbs. Dosage can always vary based on the varying sizes of individual patients.

Iris Gummies: Bears on Clouds. California. Lindsey Hitt.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

Jerry Garcia would light up the clouds over these candies. These sugary fluff ball gummies will put your head in exactly the right spaces. The sweetness hits first, as the taste experience begins sinking in and the light fruit flavor with overlapping floral hints from the cannabis CO2 oil blend together to make this a delightfully medicated treat. A mellow and easygoing high lasting at least 3-4 hours can be expected per single, 20 gram weight, 25mg THC gummy bear. The tapioca base of this edible makes it the chewiest of textures and distances it’s taste from the gooey density of something like Swedish fish. Prepare to delve into a magically creative mood, productive and artistic, as well as making already enjoyable tasks even more pleasurable: like gardening, music, reading and movies. I went for a Sunday walk enjoying nature in the park and stretching through some minor neuropathy I have in my feet. Napping was also appealing, and that’s always better on a Sunday. Bears on Clouds are a simple, sweet, and convenient way to enjoy your medicine. I

The BCCC plans to set up shop inside Amoeba Music, the city’s historical record store which has had ailing business as of late.

On the night of Sept 21, the Berkeley City Council just approved the licenses of the city’s fifth and sixth dispensaries, just four months after approving their fourth. As of now, the Berkeley Compassionate Care Collective (BCCC) and the Apothecarium are now free to establish themselves in the city to distribute medicinal cannabis. This decision came after a three hour session with the council members listening to testimony from the applicants for the two dispensaries as well as public support for their establishment.



START LOW, GO SLOW Precautions for edible consumers Dr. Robert Setari When it comes to medical marijuana it is important to be well informed on the benefits and the side effects. Regardless of whether you are using cannabis for medicinal or recreational purposes... Knowledge is power and safety! This is especially applicable to edibles. Smoking marijuana releases the active ingredient Delta-9 TetraHydroCannabinol (THC). Ingesting marijuana follows a different pathway - consumed cannabis is metabolized by the liver into 11-Hydroxy TetraHydroCannabinol. This ingested marijuana metabolite is twice as strong and lasts at least twice as long as the inhaled metabolite. Furthermore, smoking marijuana brings on effects within minutes. Ingesting marijuana can take several hours before you feel the effects. It is easy to misjudge the effects of an edible and overdose. Now a marijuana overdose will not kill you, but you may feel like you’re going to die or almost wish you were. So here we are going to lay down some absolute golden rules that you should read, follow, and use as a reference.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

While exact dosages will vary based on individual body weight and metabolism it seems that for the majority of the population 10 - 25 milligrams of THC will relax muscles and give you a blissful feeling of euphoria. In fact, you may laugh easily and for no apparent reason. You should get a great restful night of sleep.


These effects can last from 4-6 hours, sometimes longer. Remember that everyone has a different rate of metabolism and weight, general health, and built up tolerance (from extended use through time) can be key factors. To ensure consumer safety we suggest that you treat marijuana edibles like any other medication. Safety, safety, safety! And to help you get the right education we’ve compiled list of absolute rules for cannabis edibles. This article was brought to you by Dr. Robert Setari at: I

! ! ! ! !

Go Low and Go Slow

Start with a low dose of 10 milligrams of THC and wait two hours before consuming any more cannabis. Your digestive system processes food, including pot, slowly. It usually takes about 90 minutes - 2 hours for food to make it to the small intestine where it is absorbed. It can take even longer if you’re eating a substantial meal or a fatty meal. After absorption the cannabis oil will be metabolized by the liver; THC is converted into another chemical called 11-hydroxy-THC and released into the bloodstream. This metabolite is actually very potent, which is why edibles have such a strong effect.

Always Label Marijuana Edibles

Cannabis-infused foods are essentially medicated foods. Like any medication you should always label your edibles with warnings that they are medicated foods, the date they were made, the dosage of marijuana contained within. There are countless stories of a roommate or house guest who has accidentally consumed a medicated food. Be responsible and protect everyone’s safety.

Never Mix Marijuana Infused Edibles with Alcohol or Other Prescription Medications

Marijuana use has never had any reported deaths when used by itself. That’s because it is essentially impossible to overdose. However, when marijuana is combined with alcohol or other substances there can be an additive reaction which can cause very uncomfortable side effects, such as vertigo/dizziness/”the spins” and even more dangerous effects such as respiratory distress or even death.

DO NOT Drive or Operate Heavy Machinery

Marijuana is a drug and has some potent effects on the brain. Driving while “high” is the same as driving while drunk; and it is considered a DUI. Be smart and be safe. Do not endanger yourself or the public.

DO NOT Consume Medical Marijuana on an Empty Stomach

Marijuana edibles have a much stronger effect when consumed on an empty stomach. So make sure to eat a good portion of non-medicated food along with your medicated food.

Keep Away From Children and Pets

You must treat your medicated foods like any other medication. Keep it locked up or at least away from children and animals. Common sense is the rule here. As your children grow explain to them that these foods have medicine in them and are exclusively for your use.

Even if you are using cannabis or CBD for your pets, it’s important to keep it in a safe place.

Have Normal Non-Medicated Food Available

The “munchies” are a well-documented side effect of marijuana. Make sure you have normal non-medicated food around so you can snack on something other than more marijuana edibles.

Have CBD available

Another important cannabinoid is CBD. It has less of the psychotropic effects of THC which means that CBD can be used to lessen the paranoid, panicky feelings that can occur with an overdose of THC. Even with your precautions errors can happen and having some CBD capsules or CBD rich flower around for vaping can save you hours of misery. Think of CBD as a sort of antidote that will take the edge off and reduce the bad side effects of too much THC. If you do not have CBD readily available you could try citrus fruits as a weaker substitute.

Stay Calm and Carry On

Too much THC can cause anxiety, vertigo, nausea, hallucinations, and even a panic attack. Keep reminding yourself that YOU WILL NOT DIE! Have a friend talk you down and help ease your paranoia. If you are alone lay down and try to fall asleep. If you have taken your marijuana food with other substances like alcohol or other drugs then you should consider going to the Emergency Room. Always better safe than sorry!

Never “Trick” Anyone with Medicated Foods Without Their Consent!

Marijuana edibles are not a joke! They are medicated foods and there are many laws in place which make it illegal to medicate someone without their knowledge. This is actually a criminal offense. You can be prosecuted for assault and battery. Medicated foods are not for playing around. They should be treated with the same respect as any other medication. They may be more “fun” and “natural” or “organic” to take than prescription medications, but that doesn’t make them any less serious. I

GROWING is Easy, Fun and Exciting! Keiko Beatie Do you have the desire to grow a cannabis plant? It’s not easy, but with the right materials and attitude you can set out on the path of cultivation. Each cannabis plant starts from either a seed or a clone. The difference is by the time you get a clone you’ll know if it is a female or male. From a seed, you wait for it to germinate and sprout before you know if it’s a female or male, and you will want a female by the way.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

Plus growing from seeds is more of a challenge, and the joy of seeing it pop open and have a root grow can be easy, fun and exciting.


With seeds you’ll want to start out by taking the seeds and placing them in a container with a small piece of sandpaper. Shake the seeds in the container for just a minute to slightly break down the surface of the seeds. This will assist with making it easier for the seeds to germinate. Next, soak the seeds in cold water until they split open. This can take 2 to 6 days, and during this time you’ll need to change the water every two days. Once they open and a root starts to grow to 3 to 5 mm in length, you can begin to transplant them into soil. This can take up to between 10 to 14 days to reach this exciting and critical point.

Without being in soil there are plenty of nutrients within the seed for it to proliferate as long as you keep it well moisturized. Some of the vital nutrients of proteins and carbs transform into glucose,which is exactly what the seeds need for strong growth. You should use a soil with fewer nutrients to start, as you could burn the plant with too much added nutrient content. Soil made specifically for seedlings and clones that have low nutrient quantities is best. Depending on how large you’d like your plant to grow is how big your pot should be. Consider the lighting as well and where you’ll be growing this plant at. Indoor or outdoor? I don’t like to transplant as who wants to run the risk of having a plant go into shock when transporting from small to big pot. Place your rooted seed in a ½ inch hole in your pot with organic seeding soil. Each seed should have its own pot. Since the roots will always grow down, you don’t have to worry how you place the seeds inside the soil. Place the seed in the hole, and gently cover it with the soil. Spray the soil with water, it will settle down on its own so there is no need to press the soil down further. Sit back and wait as the germination process will begin, and if elements are right you should see sprouts within about a week. It’s so much fun when you get to this point! Continue to spray water a little every day or when you see the soil getting dry on top. I would use a sprayer to water during this delicate time. It’s a perfect balance you’re seeking in watering as, too much water can cause the plants to lose out on valuable oxygen and too little can stop the germination process. The soil needs to stay adequately moist, not too dry, and not overly soaked. The seedling won’t use much water, but a lot of the water evaporates fast. This is the major reason why seedlings should never go on a windowsill or near a heater. Spraying the plants 1 or 2 times throughout the day should be plenty. Lighting is the second most important item when it comes to growing. Light and water help convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose — necessary resources for plant growth, and hat’s photosynthesis. If your plant doesn’t receive enough light, the root, branch, and stalk development will not occur as it should. Once the stalk I

LC Squared On Saturday, September 24th and October 1st, Colorado’s Denver and Boulder will both play host to the newly innovated 420 Games, which is a series of athletic events held to dispel the myth of cannabis users being nothing but lazy stoners, and to show they are capable of using said drug to lead healthy, active, and responsible lives. Prior to its move to Colorado, the 420 Games have been held in California and Washington, and they’ll make their way to Oregon in late October. Participants can reserve a spot to partake in a 4.20 mile fun run around scenic areas alongside hundreds if not thousands of other fellow cannabis users. However, participants will be asked not to smoke cannabis or eat edibles on the day they participate as it is designed to be a family friendly event.

THE 420 GAMES WILL BE HELD AT : Berkeley Lake Park in Denver on Sept 24th and Boulder Reservoir in Boulder on Oct 1st before moving on to Portland, Oregon on the 29th. Tickets are on sale now on the official website at

These games were organized by cannabis entrepreneur and gym owner, Jim McAlpine, who created them to be the antithesis of the Cannabis Cup. “I look at those events as consumption-based events. They’re really focused on weed, on ‘Let’s get high.’ My events from the outside look like your average 5K run.” He is advertising the events as a “fitness first, cannabis second,” as he sees that consumption based events “give the industry—and cannabis—a bad name.” He elaborates, “There’s always going to be a place for the stoner lifestyle. And I don’t look down on stoners. I was a stoner once, and I don’t want to see stoners ostracized or chastised. I want to be a beacon of hope to show people that you can still use cannabis and change your lifestyle and be very active. I use marijuana every day, and I’m very successful. It’s not the plant that holds them back — it’s their lifestyle, and they need to rearrange their priorities.” I

"I’m not going to file – What’s the worst that could happen?" Elizabeth Sheldon, Esq.

The Question — To file or not to file

We all know that the federal government has continued to refuse to make the canna-business easy. No one is skipping down the path of stress free commerce- not the growers, the product manufacturers, the dispensary owners, or even the consumers, but what does this mean for taxes? The current trend toward not filing tax returns for those in the canna industry, is both an interesting one, and a troubling one. As a tax attorney whose emphasis includes the cannabis industry, I am often told, not asked, that my client is choosing not to file tax returns – “let them find me,” is the common +phrase. My response – “they probably will.” So, what happens next? Let’s find out.

You have to file — it’s the law

I’m sure we all know people, well before entering into the world of canna-business, who never paid taxes. Who claimed that there were exempt from filing or paying taxes, and that income tax was just illegal. Suffice it to say, this is not correct – these people are tax protesters. I had a sitting Tax Court Judge tell me that every tax protester will get their day in court, and every tax protester will lose. I can quote passages from the Internal Revenue Code and related Court decisions, but instead, please believe me when I tell you that the law says that you have to report your income, regardless of the source (legal, illegal, everything in between), and pay the requisite tax. If you really want the details, call me.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

What if you don’t file — what next – civil enforcement path

The IRS has a number of resources at their fingertips, with the most commonly used tool being the “Substitute For Return,” or SFR. This is where the IRS “guesstimates” your income, allows only a single standard deduction, and taxes you at the highest rate available to them. All eyes then turn to you, the taxpayer, to prove them wrong. In the meantime, the penalties, and the interest assessments, continue to accrue, and perhaps IRS eyes start looking at more and more years to “file for you,” you know, as a courtesy – you’re welcome. Meantime, you’re digging through your closets, shoe boxes, and recycle bins looking for receipts, pay stubs, income statements, proof of expenses, to try and limit the damage, but the cat is long out of the bag and you’re left sweeping grains of litter into a pile hoping for relief. This isn’t a good feeling. I


I can live with the civil review process, I’m STILL not filing. Up next, criminal prosecution

The IRS toolbox doesn’t stop at SFRs or civil enforcement, sometimes this can just be the beginning. They have an entire unit specifically charged with investigating taxpayers and referring them for criminal prosecution; they are called the Criminal Investigation Division or CID. Let me toss a few names your way: Lauren Hill, Wesley Snipes, Martha Stewart, Richard Pryor, Ja Rule, Chuck Berry, Darryl Strawberry, Pete Ross, and of course, Al Capone. These are people you have probably heard of and you may even know that they all have served time for tax evasion. I would like to tell you that only famous people are prosecuted, but simply put – nope. CID is a very busy unit within the IRS. I have received calls from “special agents” (those employed by the CID), investigating ex-clients, everyday Joe’s and Jane’s like yourselves. They don’t discriminate and they don’t back down. They also won’t limit

their investigation to you and your finances, but can and generally will subpoena friends, family member, neighbors, anyone they think can help shed light on their investigation and further their case. It is a process to be avoided at all costs if possible. How do you do that?

Maybe it’s time to consider filing after all

A brief recap of our path may be helpful here: If you choose not to file your returns, you take your chances, and you’ll probably lose. You may not be tagged today, or even tomorrow, but most likely in the months and years ahead, when records are no longer available and the additional assessments (penalties and interest assessments – remember those?), are skyrocketing, they’ll come calling. The IRS has filed SFRs for you and presented you with a bill that might mean selling your car, or even your home just to try break even. CID has reached out to everyone you know, and the US Attorney General is reviewing your case. Since you’re a canna-professional that likely won’t go well. Here is the game you’re playing, the risk you’ve decided to take with your financial future and your very freedoms. On the other hand; you can file your returns, take charge of the process, and have a hand in steering your own fate. There are tax professionals in the cannabis industry who are ready to help you and make sure that your returns and your tax life are set up in your best interest, and to help protect your position with the IRS (ah-hem!).

The decision to file is yours, so make an informed choice! I

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

So, now that the IRS is your new tax preparer, it seems likely that they’ll want to review older returns you’ve already filed, as a courtesy to assure you that you were correct when filing; they can audit already filed returns within their statutory window. If they find fraud, there is no time limit and the IRS is now examining your tax returns with a microscope looking for things to question. They usually find something and the entire process can take months or even years to resolve. More likely than not, once done, you’re left with a Notice of Deficiency, or a bill for unpaid taxes, plus the penalties & interest already discussed. Rest assured that they may keep an eye open on future returns as well, again, as a courtesy. Keep in mind, this is only the less invasive path of civil review.

B. Le Grand In many new cases in the media, we are seeing veterinarians and emergency room doctors counting their arising weekly intakes of overdoses on cannabis infused edibles. In each story they say, “There’s nothing that can be done.” We are here to let you know that this is not true, something absolutely can be done. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) inhibitor, which means that a CBD dose can be administered to any patient or any that is feeling “too high.” No matter where you stand or how you feel about the cannabis plant, the medical research shows definite evidence of THC metabolizing at a different rate when cannabidiol was administered. In 1996 a study was conducted by the Department of Pharmacy, at the University of California, San Francisco determining that cannabidiol inhibited the metabolization of tetrahydrocannabinol and cyclosporine (an immunosuppressive drug used to prevent the rejection of grafts and transplants), in mouse and human microsomes. The study found that cannabidiol selectively decreased THC levels in human cells, specifically the group of metabolizing enzymes in the human liver. Another study was conducted early last year in January of 2013 that found CBD inhibited paranoid and psychotic symptoms in human test subjects when administered prior to dosing intravenous THC.

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

The Beckley Foundation also conducted a study on a female human. In this two day study, on one occasion, she was given a mixture of intravenous THC + CBD and on the other day she was administered pure THC. With the CBD mix she was euphoric, coherent and happy. In contrast with the pure THC, she was paranoid, couldn’t form thoughts, couldn’t remember things, and was extremely mentally uncomfortable with how she was feeling. THC is the psychoactive compound that makes you feel “high” and sometimes too high if ingested in concentrated forms. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the answer when a human or animal “overdoses” on marijuana. On a molecular level, CBD inhibits and decreases THC levels in the body. It is a statistical fact that there have been zero deaths in history from cannabis alone. Do not let a doctor tell you that nothing I



continued from page 56

can be done for your dog that accidentally ate your roach, hash, or brownie. Cannabidiol or high CBD oils, including extractions from the legal hemp plant are available at your local cannabis dispensary or you can purchase sublingual products online and have it shipped to you for your medicine cabinet. The dosing for a pet or a dog will not need to be nearly as high for a human, but it’s important to spread the word and knowledge about this so that eventually veterinary offices and hospitals have cannabidiol on hand as the antidote for a THC overdose. There are many CBD drops available at shops and legally online. HempMeds Px makes an affordable sublingual tincture called Cibdex, which usually runs about $30. Valley Hi in Woodland Hills, Calif. carries it, so do many other shops.

Inhibition of cyclosporine and tetrahydrocannabinol metabolism by cannabidiol in mouse and human microsomes. [W Jaeger, L Z Benet, L M Bornheim. Department of Pharmacy, University of California, SF] “ABSTRACT 1. The in vitro and in vivo effects of cannabidiol on mouse and human liver microsomal metabolism of the immunosuppressive drug cyclosporine and the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol have been examined. 2. Preincubation of mouse or human liver microsomes with cannabidiol decreased the formation of all detectable cyclosporine metabolites by 73-89%. 3. In vivo cannabidiol treatment of mouse similarly decreased the formation of all detectable cyclosporine metabolites by 60-86%. 4. Preincubation of human liver microsomes with cannabidiol selectively decreased the formation of tetrahydrocannabinol metabolites catalyzed by cytochrome P4503A by 60% but had no effect on P4502C9-catalyzed metabolites. 5. Cannabidiol has the potential to clinically affect cyclosporine metabolism which may result in increased cyclosporine blood levels and an increase in its toxic side effects, and likewise may also affect tetrahydrocannabinol and its metabolite levels in man.” I



The First City in Tennessee to

Decriminalize Cannabis

Edibles Magazine Issue 28

LC Squared Tennessee has taken its first progressive step in which the capital city of Nashville has finally passed a decriminalization measure for cannabis possession. The Metro Council voted 35-3 to give the approval of legislation that allows police officers the option of giving offenders who possess half-an-ounce or less a more lenient civil penalty which includes a $50 fine and 10 hours of community service. The lead sponsor of this bill, Councilman Dave Rosenberg, has said, “All this bill does is give police the option of not treating someone with a little pot like a hardened criminal. Because when you start treating good members of our society like criminals they begin acting like criminals.” Nashville’s mayor Megan Berry is set to sign the bill into law and has been supportive of measures to decriminalize cannabis. “This legislation is a positive step forward in addressing the overly punitive treatment of marijuana possession in our state that disproportionately impacts low-income and minority residents,” she said. However, despite this mitigation, police still get the final say on whether or not offenders will face either a mere fine or criminal charges which are some of the grievances that opponents

of the bill have expressed. State Rep. William Lamberth likened the new ordinance to a “Russian roulette situation” in which offenders would be unsure of what penalty they’ll face. Initially, when the bill was drafted, the measure would’ve made minor possession of cannabis an automatic civil penalty. But after some opposition from the Nashville Metro Police, the bill was changed to make the civil penalty an option. In spite of these misgivings, supporters of this bill see this as a rewarding first step as other cities around the state are taking note of this measure as Memphis is expected to follow suit this October. Should the results be favorable, Nashville may indeed explore options to that allow more leniency for cannabis possession. I
