LETTER FROM THETEXT EDITOR HERE TEXT HERE Greetings my friends,

advocacy will never be forgotten.

Edibles Magazine Issue 32

We also cover The Top 10 Innovations and Inventions Using Hemp and the History of Cannabis in Kazakhstan. Our own Siouxsie Q was in Las Vegas for The AVN Awards and let us know just what was going on there when it came to cannabis and edibles.

We’re now well over a month into the first year of Legalized Adult Recreational Cannabis Use in California, and what can i say? It’s weird and we aren’t sure how we feel about it. There aren’t a lot of shops left and the edibles are getting weaker. There’s an extra 45% in new taxes and many of everyone’s favorite brands are gone, on hold or underground. This is the Legalization Issue and we’re joined in covering what’s happening with the always enigmatic Charlo Greene. We joined Ms Greene in DTLA on the night of the extremely rare Super Blue Blood Moon, (the meet-up of a Blue Moon, super-moon and total lunar eclipse). She’s got a 2nd Season of The Weed on the air and she’s got a great new line up of guests joining her every day. Dennis Peron lost his battle with cancer at age 72 on January 29th, 2018 and the cannabis world had to mourn one of our most important pioneers. It’s sad to see a legend pass and the work he did for patients Issue No. 42 I Page 10

It’ll be interesting to see what the future brings. Four twenty is only a couple of months away and we aren’t sure what will be allowed yet so it’s hard to say exactly what we’ll be doing in mid-April. Keep reading this magazine to know for sure. We’ve also got product reviews of some truly new innovative ways of medicating and it is fascinating to see what science keeps coming up with. The same great recipe section is here as always and this time we’ve included how to make cannabis butter at home to help you infuse your foods perfectly. We just got back from San Francisco and this month we’ll be back in Hawaii for The Hawaii Cannabis Expo. Cheech and Chong will be there too so we’re extra excited. It has been interesting to see the vast differences between San Francisco and Oakland in The Bay, and what’s happening in Los Angeles. In The Bay there are lots of legally licensed adult shops with lines going out the door and it’s a totally different vibe. As always, smile at your budtender, tip your delivery driver, and know your dose. “Truth is not obliged to stick to possibilities.”

The Birthplace of Cannabis: Kazakhstan’s Chuy Valley

Edibles Magazine Issue 42

Jack Paradise

The heartland of cannabis in Kazakhstan is the Chuy Valley, lying in between Kazakhstan and its neighbor Kyrgyzstan. The Chuy Valley is a large valley located in north Tian-Shan. It extends from Boom Gorge in the east to Muyun Kum Desert in the west. The valley has an area of around 32,000 square kilometers, and borders Kyrgyz Ala-Too in the south, and the Chu-Ili mountains in the north. It is estimated that up to one million acres of wild cannabis grows there, accounting for around one third of the available fertile soil and over 10% of the total area of the valley making it the largest cannabis field in the world. Chu River is the major stream of the valley which helps make it all possible.

interesting methods of extracting and manufacturing concentrate, this story has been hard to verify and there wasn’t much more information to support it. Of course, that doesn’t mean it isn’t true, but it doesn’t seem to be depicted much at all in artwork or folklore that can be found.

Cannabis in the Chuy Valley can be dried and smoked in the regular fashion, or may be processed into hashish known as ruchnik, which translates to made by hand, made by rubbing the leaves between the hands in order to collect the resin. The resin is then scraped off the fingers, pressed and molded to form sticky, dense hashish, and packed into matchboxes to be sold. The hashish is renowned for its potency, and has occasionally been known to make it as far as Europe where it is often mislabeled as being made in Pakistan, although the majority is destined for sale in Russia as well as the Central Asian region. It has yet to gain popularity or to make its way into the US. Merkhet Sharipzyanov, writing for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, published the following unusual story about the traditional production method for this particular locally made product:

Cannabis is illegal in Kazakhstan under the Law of the Republic Kazakhstan of No. 279-I, About drugs, psychotropic substances, their analogsandprecursorsandmeasuresofcounteraction to their illicit trafficking and abuse of them. This Law regulates the legal basis of state policy in the sphere of drug trafficking, psychotropic substances, their analogs and precursors and establishes measures of counteraction to their illicit trafficking for the purpose of rendering the narcological help and protection of public health and state security. Prison in Kazakhstan should be avoided at all costs. Dozens of prisoners across Kazakhstan have injured themselves to protest against prison conditions and their treatment.

“The most concentrated and popular form of marijuana is so-called "plastilin" (plasticine), and the way it is harvested and produced has not changed for centuries. It begins with a freshly showered person riding naked for hours on a clean, washed horse inside a two-meter-high "forest" of marijuana. Afterwards, the human body and that of the horse are covered with a thick layer of resin mixed with sweat.” Although a fascinating tale, and one of the more

The primary birthplace of cannabis, Kazakhstan enjoys a vibrant culture of cultivation and use, as well as abundant wild growth of cannabis. As the homeland of cannabis, the large and diverse Central Asian gene pool could be of huge importance in research as it may provide clues as to the plant’s early evolution and development. Furthermore, the sturdy, two meter tall Kazakhstani type is an ideal backbone for breeding high quality indoor genetics, and throughout the world, we are losing these land races at an alarming rate to habitat fragmentation, eradication, and the introduction of foreign genetics.

Kazakhstan may have a long and rich history of cannabis cultivation but the lingering effects of the Soviet Union make it difficult for anyone in the area to benefit much in any way without serious risks and consequences. Riding horses naked through fields of wild cannabis to make hash is probably the most innovative production process i’ve heard of, we just aren’t sure it’s true. If Kazakhstan ever finds a way to use their natural cannabis resources to their advantage they could have one of the most profitable and abundant natural cannabis markets on the planet.

With California cannabis legalization taking place, Charlo Greene shares her message, not to be made an example of. She suggests not making yourself a target when it comes to the gray parts of the regulations. She thinks we should take Jeff Sessions threats seriously, and knows from watching other states that legalization can make it not worth the cost of doing business.

The Cole Memorandum was adopted in 2013 and is a policy of non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws that offered protection from federal prosecution for cultivation, distribution and possession, and created a safe harbor for the cannabis industry to operate in those states. Over the last four years since her infamous, joint sparking send off. Greene has been a prominent figure in the Cannabis Community for speaking her mind, standing her ground and not being swayed by mainstream media. After her departure from KTVA, Greene opened an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for marijuana reform, which raised over $10,000. She also worked with the Minority Cannabis Industry Association. In December 2016, Greene moved to Los Angeles, where she hosts The Weed, formerly The Weed Show. The Weed is a variety show for the cannabis community. It features news,

The Weed is now in its second season and features some changes. The livestream is 1-2PM on Facebook and Youtube and has a new look as well. Charlo mentioned one of the biggest changes is, “I’m smoking a LOT less now during the show, keeping the product as polished as possible and staying focused on delivering the information we’re tasked on sharing.” She mentioned that keeping up to date on the information can be a challenge, “Because it changes on a daily basis, so you never know!”

Greene has been relatively vocal on The Weed with her criticisms of Prop 64. For those not fully aware, The Adult Use of Marijuana Act is the 2016 voter initiative to legalize cannabis in California. The full name of the measure is the "Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act". It’s only been happening since January 1st, but so far there seems to be a fair amount of problems with how legalization is being implemented in California. Greene is more guarded now and with good reason. Unlicensed and non-compliant shops and

dispensaries are at a high risk in the current climate and there seems to be a new era of rule enforcement happening within the industry. A certain amount of patience will be needed to see where we’re really headed here in the Golden State. Cannabis is now available legally to anyone over 21 years of age but the taxes make it much more expensive than before and high dose edibles are being phased out. Charlo Greene is definitely here to stay, but it’ll take time to see what the landscape she’ll be inhabiting is really going to look like once the dust settles. To stay caught up with everything Charlo is up to and to see what she’s doing next, go to TheWeedShow.co for new and archived episodes of The Weed with Charlo Greene. While she might be smoking less weed on air, we thought we should mention, her joint and blunt rolling skills are superb!

CANNABIS COMMUNITY

Fat Flower Media Siouxsie Q

Milcah Halili and April Flores are on a mission to make the mindful use of cannabis more accessible to minority communities, which is why they founded Fat Flower Media last year, a blog aimed to help minorities grow beyond the glass ceiling with the use of medical cannabis. “We are a queer couple of color,” says Hilali. “April is from the Mexican community, I’m Filipino.” The couple spoke to me on speaker phone while driving down the freeway. Flores is a Los Angeles native and Hilali is from the Bay Area. We talked about the necessity of the cannabis industry to have a reparationaist agenda and prioritize entrepreneurs from communities who have been disproportionately affected by the war on drugs. Fat Flower Media amplifies products and services that share the values that the couple believe in, which include cultivating a minimal carbon footprint, investing in an inclusive and diverse community, and limiting the use of harsh chemicals. Fat Flower Media also aims to educate their readers about the healing properties of cannabis, especially surrounding trauma associated with the aggressions and micro-aggressions that queer people of color face regularly. The real life couple, who met while working in the adult industry, say they fostered their relationship while using cannabis medicinally and recreationally together. Much of their blog is devoted to how cannabis can enhance connection and intimacy with a partner--from practical advice such as, “Cannabis can help with lack of appetite and can prevent fights,” to recommendations for a sweet stoney date night with joints on the beach, a shared edible, and some infused lubricant. Fat Flower was founded on the belief that you can be your best self “while being high as fuck” on high quality cannabis, and the picturesque power couple behind the blog are living proof of just that.

FEATURED STORY

Dennis Peron, Patient Advocate, Cannabis Activist, Father of Prop 215, Passed Away Following Legalization Jakki Hernandez

Edibles Magazine Issue 42

On Saturday the Medical Cannabis industry lost another relentless advocate. Dennis Peron, 72 lost his battle with cancer on January 29th, 2018 sending social media into a spin as every person that either knew him or admired him shared touching messages of how Dennis positively impacted their lives. In the cannabis industry Peron is an icon. Dennis was one of the pioneers in recognizing the health benefits of cannabis directing the public to begin seeing the plant as the medicine it was. He was the first to highlight its medicinal benefits in the early 80s during the Aids epidemic. His story is one of heroism from being a vet to advocacy pushing for medical cannabis freedom in San Francisco. Dennis Peron not only co-wrote Prop 215 he was the also the 1st in the nation to open up a public marijuana dispensary. Without the efforts of Dennis Peron, we would not have had medical cannabis in California, which later paved the way for Prop 64 adult use in California. In order to get to know the legend, its important we recognize his path.

22

Prior to starting his infamous cannabis crusade in San Francisco and teaming up with Harvey Milk to protect gay rights, Peron was drafted in 1966 to serve during Vietnam. Once Peron arrived he spoke of his military supervisors handing him a gun, “I can’t take a gun, I close my eyes when I shoot” he stated with no hesitation. That probably had something to do with him continuing the rest of his time in Vietnam serving with the United States Air Force. His deployment ended up playing a vital role in Peron learning and connecting with his deepest secret. Peron recognized he was gay while serving in the USAF. As he served he would fondly look back at the month before he was deployed where he visited San Francisco for the first time, a town that actually accepted him for who he was. Dennis promised himself he would return. In a 2014 interview conducted by acclaimed

journalist Bruce Barcott, while sitting in front of Castro District Peron declared, “I came to San Francisco to find love and to change the world.” “I found love, in my husband Jonathan West, only to lose him through AIDS, together we changed the world through legalization of marijuana.” It was his love for both the gay community and cannabis that he continued to spread his wisdom even upon his battle with cancer. Cannabis helped his then dying husband with the side effects from Aids and now it was helping him with his appetite and pain levels due to cancer and in the beginning, he believed it helped him with his depression. There was always a medical connection to the plant. His story with cannabis starts as his deployment ends. Peron once revealed he returned to the U.S after his service with 2 lbs of cannabis strapped in his military gear, little did he know that was the start of him entering the California cannabis culture. Shortly after arriving in San Francisco he visited, Napa State Hospital for his Psych studies, where he met patients that were admitted there solely because they were gay. Peron is quoted saying, “during this time in our history, being ‘gay’ was practically against the law”. Many of the patients at Napa were admitted by the court or family members to a hospital with insane asylum standards to change them into heterosexual Americans. Peron learned here upon speaking with many of the patients who were suffering that their symptoms were eased by the use of cannabis. Peron felt a kinship with these patients, feeling the stigma himself; being an Italian, church going Veteran. He believed there should be a place for people to obtain this medicine for whatever ailed them. Peron believed every cannabis user was a medical patient whether or not they knew it. Peron became a marijuana dealer after returning from Vietnam to San Francisco in 1969. In the 1970s, he ran the Big Top marijuana supermarket out of his home where met and developed a close relationship with Harvey Milk, who would later become the 1st openly gay man elected into public office in San Francisco, CA. In the 1970s, Peron

This relationship was very special to Peron, Harvey was known as the, “Mayor” of Castro Street where in 1995 Peron ended up creating the, Cannabis Buyers Club. This was the nation’s 1st public marijuana dispensary. With his love for activism and protecting others right to choose both their medicine and their partner. Like many activists their accomplishments are recorded and Peron is no different. According to Ballotpedia, he was a major contributor to 3 important cannabis propositions.

with the pronouncement that Peron is the “Father of medical marijuana.” A title and honor that Peron accepted with humble gratitude and ironically, if it was about legalization he may have rejected. Although Peron was a proponent and advocate for the medical use of cannabis he was a staunch opponent to all the recent efforts to legalize it. Even taking his hatred against taxing the plant to a personal level when he left his job at Amsterdam University. As the leaders expressed the intention of endorsing and funding the support campaign for an initiative to tax and regulate marijuana. His bio in Ballotpedia also mentions that in August 2009, Peron expressed opposition to the taxation of medical marijuana, arguing that other medicine wasn't taxed and that giving in to the idea of taxing marijuana was a compromise that would ultimately harm the medical marijuana movement.

In recent years, Peron even drove to Humboldt County where growers were already prepping their greenhouses for the commercial cannabis market and told the growers that tyranny and taxing marijuana Ballot measures meant giving up control and calling it 1978: Peron organized San Francisco Stop Prosecuting “recreational” was the worst of all, as he Marijuana Offenses, Proposition W (1978).

even offered space in one of his business, “Island” a restaurant on the corner of 16th and Sanchez that always smelled like pot. In his years involved in the cannabis industry Peron was arrested 26 times but he never saw significant trouble. Except for once during a raid, where he was shot in the leg by an officer who was later quoted saying,” I wish I would have killed the faggot.” Words that only fueled Peron’s fight against the bigotry and ignorance around him. In 1978 Peron was sentenced to 6 months in prison after being charged with possession of 200lb of cannabis. Sadly, it was during this time that Harvey Milk was assassinated. Proving the unfortunate reality, equality and acceptance had still not reached the gay community.

FOOD SCIENCE

MAKING EDIBLES SUGAR-FREE Rachel Zemser

M

ost edible products on the market are high in sugar, like brownies, gummy candies, cookies, cakes and caramel popcorn. They are popular with both the developers and dispensaries because the high sugar content allows them to be sold and stored at room temperature. However, as the variety and type of edible options increase, buyers are searching for lower sugar options so they can have their cannabis cake and eat it too- and not throw off their blood sugar levels! Unfortunately, healthier lower sugar foods like vegetable smoothies, beef jerky, yogurt, and juice all must be refrigerated and have a short shelf life. Edible makers are searching for ways to create shelf stable, diabetic friendlier baked goods with less sugar.

D

evelopers have lots of alternative sweetener options available to them. There are high intensity sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit, similar to sugar intensity sweeteners like sugar alcohol and soluble fiber syrups and non-sweet easily digestible bulking agents like maltodextrin. All of these ingredients can be found online in bulk or through specialty ingredient suppliers. They can get pricey (versus the price of sugar) but they can add sweetness to the product while allowing the developer to lower the sugar content.

Edibles Magazine Issue 42

H

igh intensity sweeteners include stevia, monk fruit, sucralose, saccharin, and aspartame. These are all 100-600X sweeter than sugar and used in tiny amounts to add sweetness to food products. Stevia and monk fruit are natural and come from plants and are preferred sweeteners in the natural food space. Because stevia and monk fruit are so much sweeter than sugar, the developer needs to use much less of it to flavor the food item. If your cake recipe calls for 40% sugar, you will only need about 1% stevia or monk to create a similar sweetness. This presents a unique problem of finding a way to add “bulk”—if your original cake recipe has eggs, milk, sugar and flour- and you

remove the sugar, replacing it with a fraction by weight of stevia, you need to somehow make up the difference. This scenario would call for using a maltodextrin, a bulking agent that is made of easily digestible carbohydrates that have very little sweetness. They act as the carrying agent. Some companies sell their stevia already combined with a maltodextrin already.

M

altodextrins are great bulking agents and while they are not exactly a sugar, they are high on the glycemic index scale so they can still be problematic for diabetics. Bulking ingredient alternatives include sugar alcohol or soluble fibers like chicory root, inulin and inulin. Sugar alcohols, also known as polyhydric alcohol are natural sweeteners that are absorbed slowly by the body and have almost no calories. They are sold as mannitol, sorbitol, lactitol and erythritol. These should be used and consumed with caution, they can cause gas, stomach cramps and diarrhea if consumed in large amounts. Soluble fibers are high in fiber and low in sugar but have a slightly sweet taste. They do have calories but their fiber content portion is not as digestible and can be better for those who are watching their glycemic index.

W

orking with sugar replacers involves some research and development. It’s important to find just the right combination of bulk plus sweetness to ensure your finished product tastes great and doesn’t leave a high intensity sweetener aftertaste. Consider your market and those who you hope will buy your product. If you want your product to be diabetic friendly, try to avoid maltodextrin and explore inulin. Review your finished product with a food scientist and nutritionist to ensure you meet your grams of sugar per serving goals.

Convenient Home Canna-Butter Ingredients: 1 cup of water 1 lb. of butter, unsalted 1 oz. of high quality lightly ground cannabis bud, or trim You will also need the following equipment: Container with lid, Twine, Glass or ceramic bowl, refrigerator and heat safe, Pot, Stove, Spatula Knife, Cheesecloth, Baking sheet or oven pan Instructions: Preheat oven to 215 degrees Fahrenheit. Buds should be in small pieces. Spread evenly over the surface of the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. This is a preliminary step called decarboxylation: heating the cannabis to release active natural substances, making it much stronger. The cannabis will be light brown, dried out, and the active ingredients will be concentrated. Add 1 lb. of butter and 1 cup of water to your cooking pot and simmer on low. The water will prevent the butter from

burning. As the butter melts, add your 1 oz. of ground cannabis. This is a potent cannabutter recipe. For a gentler canna butter, add less cannabis to get a less potent ratio of cannabis to butter. Keep the mixture simmering on low for 3 hours stirring occasionally. Make sure it doesn’t reach a boil. Then remove from heat and let it cool enough to safely touch. Strain out plant material with cheesecloth Tie your cheesecloth with twine to make a lid covering your glass or ceramic bowl or other container. Carefully pour the hot mixture into your bowl while straining it with the cheese cloth to remove all plant substance. You can also use a permanent coffee filter or mesh for straining. Refrigerate for hardening Remove the cheesecloth. Cover the mixture and place it in the refrigerator for hardening. The butter will separate from the water and you will remove it with your spatula or other tool and place it in a storage container for use. Dispose of the remaining water.

Baba Ganja Ganoush rimmed baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionally, until charred on all sides and completely tender, about 1 hour. Eggplants should be very tender when cooked. Test near the stem and bottom ends. If a toothpick or skewer meets any resistance, continue cooking. Remove from oven and gather up foil, crimping it around the eggplants to form a sealed package. Let the eggplants rest for 15 minutes. Open foil package. Working one eggplant at a time, use a sharp paring knife to slit it open lengthwise. Carefully scoop out soft flesh with a large spoon and transfer to a strainer set in a large bowl. Once all eggplant is scooped, pick out any stray bits of skin and blackened flesh and discard.

Instructions: If using a gas burner or grill (recommended): Preheat a gas or coal grill to medium heat and place eggplants directly over heat source. Cook, turning occasionally with tongs, until completely tender and well charred on all sides, 30 to 40 minutes. Wrap with foil and let rest 15 minutes. If using the broiler: Adjust rack to 6 inches below broiler element and preheat broiler to high. Place eggplant on a foil-lined

The Top 10 Innovations & Inventions Patrick Ian Moore

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the origin of the word “Hemp” is from the Old English word henep, originally hænep, is of Germanic origin; and related to the Dutch hennep and German Hanf. The OED defines hemp as: “The cannabis plant, especially when grown for fibre, or the fibre of the cannabis plant, extracted from the stem and used to make rope, strong fabrics, fibreboard, and paper.” We’ve been using hemp since the dawn of civilization and continue to discover new applications and uses every day. Hemp might be a miracle plant and may just save this planet some day, so please enjoy, in no certain order:

Hempcrete

Hempcrete is a bio-composite made of the inner woody core of the hemp plant mixed with a lime-based binder. The hemp core has a high silica content which allows it to bind well with lime. This property is unique to hemp among all natural fibers. The result is a lightweight cementitious insulating material weighing about a seventh or an eighth of the weight of concrete. Fully cured hempcrete blocks float in a bucket of water.

Edibles Magazine Issue 42

Hemp Clothing

40

Hemp clothing absorbs and releases perspiration quickly and breathes well, absorbs dye easily and retains color well, holds up to repeated washings and never needs dry cleaning. Hemp clothing is naturally antimicrobial, is resistant to mold and mildew, and Hemp fabric gets softer, the more it's washed and worn. Hemp is also much kinder to the Earth than conventionally grown cotton.

Hemp Seed Foods

The leaves of the hemp plant can be eaten, but the part of the plant best known for nutritional value is the seeds. These small seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. Hemp seeds also contain complete, high-quality protein and all eight essential amino acids. Hempseed is considered by leading researchers to be one of the most nutritious superfoods known to man.

Hemp Seed Oil

Refined hemp seed oil is primarily used in body care products. Industrial hemp seed oil is used in lubricants, paints, inks, fuel, and plastics. Hempseed oil has found some limited use in the production of soaps, shampoos and detergents as well as feedstock for the large-scale production of biodiesel. The oil is of high nutritional value because of its 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids, which matches the balance required by the human body.

Hemp Fiber Bio Composites

Hemp fiber is used most as reinforcement in composites. The blending materials range from thermoplastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene to thermoset fiber such as polyester. Plant based resins from soy or canola are also used so that a 100% biocomposite is feasible. Applications include automotive interior substrates, furniture and other consumer products. Hemp fiber is also used to produce mineral based composites.

DID YOUTEXT KNOW? HERE

Throughout History Using Hemp Hemp fabric was smashed down into thin sheets to make the world's first paper. The Gutenberg Bible, Thomas Paine's pamphlets, and the novels of Mark Twain were all printed on hemp paper. Both the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were drafted on hemp. Hemp makes paper stronger and lasts centuries longer than wood paper, which could be very valuable for people who want to keep records aside from on computers.

Hemp Milk

Hemp milk, or hemp seed milk, is a plant milk made from hemp seeds that are soaked and ground in water, yielding a beanynutty cream-flavored substance. There are various options available for sale including organic, non-GMO, and conventional: unsweetened, original, vanilla, and chocolate flavored. The essential fatty acids, vitamins & nutrients that are contained in organic hemp milk provide a wide variety of health benefits.

Hemp Biofuel

Hemp can provide two types of fuel, Hemp biodiesel – made from the oil of the pressed hemp seed, and Hemp ethanol/ methanol – made from the fermented stalk. Ethanol is made from such things as grains, sugars, starches, waste paper and forest products, and methanol is made from woody/pulp matter. Using processes such as gasification, acid hydrolysis and enzymes, hemp can be used to make both ethanol and methanol.

Hemp CBD Isolate

Hemp CBD Isolate is cannabidiol in its purest form possible. In the crystalline form, CBD isolate crystals are a fine white powder that only contains the Cannabidiol chemical compound. CBD isolate powder and CBD isolate crystals are the purest, most powerful CBD available. The CBD isolate extraction process produces a botanical concentrate that includes the cannabinoids and fatty acids found naturally in hemp plants.

Hemp Rope

Hemp rope was used in China as far back as 2,800 B.C. Historically, hemp ropes were used for climbing, shipping, fishing, horsemanship and construction. Hemp fibers make good ropes because they are strong, durable, resistant to mold and ultraviolet light. The manufacture of hemp ropes is more environmentally friendly than the manufacture of synthetic ropes. Because hemp rope is made from natural fibers, it is completely biodegradable. Fun fact: The United States Navy still uses hemp rope today. It is superior in its strength and durability to any other material. Historically, sails also were made from cannabis hemp. During World War II, it was mandated by the United States Government for farmers to grow hemp so they could use it for rope for the war. There is a 1942 short film titled, "Hemp for Victory," that documents this, which was originally discovered by Jack Herer.

PRODUCT REVIEWS The AeroInhaler Patrick Ian Moore

This product is one of the more scientifically innovative and advanced ways of consuming cannabis, and it’s certainly been a long time coming. The AeroInhaler is a brand new device hitting the market and probably the most medical looking product we’ve seen. The AeroInhaler aerosol inhaler delivers refined THC , using pure cannabis distillate while maintaining the flavor profile by adding live resin terpenes back into this product, making it possible to taste the profile of live resin with every

puff. This inhaler is made with pharmaceuticalgrade components containing 100 puffs per canister. Each puff dispenses 10mg of distillate packing 7mg of THC directly to your lungs with no heat, no combustion, and no throat burn. It works by simply placing the plastic actuator into the mouth and pressing down like any other inhaler. The mist is cold and you feel the tetrahydrocannabinol immediately. It’s a good feeling and is slightly different than traditional methods of consumption. I felt very productive after taking my initial 3 hits and was relaxed without experiencing any heavy head or couch lock. The packaging is very childproof and a bit like solving a cardboard puzzle box. Exciting and futuristic, this space age design is the most modernized way of getting high you’ll find right now and it is thoroughly fresh and new just like the homepage says. Get all the details at aeroinhaler.com.

Jack Paradise

Let me start by first mentioning that this vape pen is a beautifully designed little piece of equipment. Elite Vapes have brought the bling to the vape game and it glitters like gold. This 0.5g all-in-one disposable vape pen is glass tipped and gold bodied. The EV logo on the end lights up bright blue when you inhale and the puffs and plumes come out in rich flavorful white clouds. It’s a serious aesthetic and should be appreciated. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the flavor but the peppermint was actually very subtle and more like a pleasant aftertaste. The hybrid oil is premium distillate processed using Co2 and a nice golden clear color that matches the hardware perfectly. The potency is just over 90% and can start being felt within seconds. This was a smooth and mellow experience that was thoroughly enjoyable. The Elite Pen tastes very nice, feels good and you look great using it. Sleek and modern without exactly being subtle, it’s pure California without a doubt. Go to the Elite Vapes website at elitevapesca.com to see what else they offer and to learn more about them.

Nternal Micro Dose Cannabis Suppositories Patrick Ian Moore

The Nternal line of cannabis suppositories is made by the same experts from Xternal brand topicals, sprays, balms and creams. I’ve seen Xternal’s founder Ed Breslin speak on panels before and heard his company and product history as well and I’ve always been a fan of everything from the analgesic spray to the thc massage oil, but I never expected myself to be a big cannabis suppository user despite how obvious the medical benefits clearly are. I rectally inserted one of the Nternal brand suppositories on a Sunday evening a few weeks ago thinking I’d give it a try so I could properly write an honest review. These contain a full spectrum of cannabinoid profiles containing THC, THCA, CBD, CBNA, CBN and CBG. They come 5 to a pack and

are recommended for nighttime use. After the insertion I actually kind of forgot I’d done that and then remembered the Edibles List team was signed up to compete that evening in The Big LeBongski Bowling Tournament. It was only after we’d started to bowl that I even remembered I’d tried it and then realized I also wasn’t desiring to go outside and smoke so clearly something was working. I hadn’t bowled for years and I can’t say for sure that cannabis suppositories are performance enhancing substances but I felt very relaxed and rolled a 165 the very 1st game. Our whole team did great and we actually won the tournament as well as the coveted bowling pin bong trophy and advanced to the Championship game on 4/20 weekend. The medicine was released slowly and evenly in a nice and steady time-release fashion throughout the night. I highly advise giving these a chance especially if you’re seriously suffering, though they can totally be used recreationally as well.

Everything That Is Wrong with California’s Current Legal Cannabis System B. Le Grand

Yes, cannabis is legal, but at what cost? Besides small businesses being pushed out of the industry and manufacturers not being able to find licenses available in their municipalities, the main things wrong with the California state system is the tax structure, driving of the black market, patients losing access to their medicine and the end of cannabis events.

involved.

CANNABIS TAXES

Let’s break it down so we can see it in front of us clearly:

Edibles Magazine Issue 42

A 15% excise tax doesn’t sound so bad, until you do the math on the taxes added on to the raw cost of goods before they got to the retailer. Let’s take for example a 100mg edible. Prior to 2018 the wholesale rate on that type of cannabis infused product was about $6. The shops then doubled the cost and you have a 100mg edible at $12 retail, with some shops having charged their taxes on top and some shops factoring the tax into the cost.

46

Now, under the current state laws, cannabis is taxed at every stage in the game, 15% on cultivation, 15% on manufacturing, and 15% (“on an expected 60% markup”) on distribution activities. That means if a micro-business cultivates, manufactures and self-distributes, vape product and edible makers must charge 45% tax to the retailer. If you just manufacture and distribute the tax is 30% to the retailer. It's a flawed tax system because no one knows who is responsible to collecting each stage of taxation. Furthermore, retailers always keystone their markup, which is a 100% markup as opposed to what the state is estimating a typical 60% markup. With increased costs of licensing fees, compliance, attorney’s fees, and most especially new child-proof, resealable, tamper-evident, and single packaged for each 10mg dose requirements, it drives the cost of producing up severely. That $6 100mg edible just became $7 at its best lowest possible cost before all taxes

We haven’t even gotten to the city, county, state cannabis excise tax and state cannabis sales tax, which all absolutely get charged to the consumer at a legal adult-use cannabis store. The exact tax rates vary from city to city and county to county, but the range of additional combined taxes out the door goes from 24-35%.

$7.00 edible 100mg wholesale X 45% to retailer = $10.15 with taxes $10.15 X keystone pricing (double from wholesale to retail) = $20.30 retail price before excise tax $20.30 X state excise tax + city tax + county tax + sales tax (averaging a total of 29.75%) = $26.34 Let’s do the same math for a single dose 10mg edible at it’s average current cost: $2.00 edible 10mg wholesale X 45% to retailer = $2.90 with taxes $2.90 X keystone pricing (double from wholesale to retail) = $5.80 retail price before excise tax $5.80 X state excise tax + city tax + county tax + sales tax (averaging a total of 29.75%) = $7.53 I don’t know anyone that wants to pay $8 for 10mg. At that rate, it cost less to score opioid prescription pills on the street. While some democrats predict the average increase of cannabis products to go up 45% in the next year and level out down the road,

CALIFORNIA UPDATE TEXT HERE

We can’t exactly be mad at taxes, everyone wants their piece. Many, including ourselves foresee taxation being lowered as we have seen occur in the other legalized states over time. We’ve also seen Colorado issue a tax refund to Colorado residents for a surplus of cannabis taxes. Tourism is a driving force behind the lines around the block at legal adult-use dispensaries. While out of towners don’t mind paying all the taxes and increased prices, there is the rest of the population who were patients before don’t have the funds for the increased cost of their medicine. This leads us to our next two points of how these increased prices drive the black market and affect actual patients. PATIENTS AND THE BLACK MARKET Beyond the increased cost with taxes, there is almost no benefit to going through the trouble of getting your medical recommendation, state or county card. The best the medical identifier gets you is 5% off. The entire genesis of this program is based on medical patients, so why would we tax cannabis as medicine when opioids and prescription pills don’t get taxed. Even in Colorado they offer a lower rate for state registered medical patients, and in Arizona they actually acknowledge it as a medicine and do not tax medical cannabis sales. Currently there is no difference in products if you’re in an adult-use store, and all edibles are supposed to be 100mg. While tinctures and capsules will allow 1000mg max dosages for medical patients, there are thousands of patients out there that have found products and brands that worked for them they have either already lost access to or are going to lose access to. People with debilitating illnesses that require high-dose edibles will find a way to get their medicine regardless. Even Colorado set their medical edible limits to 500mg. Making your edibles will be the only option legally, which

will drive black market sales of high-dose unlicensed products. Counties that have issued bans are cutting off access to homebound patients as well. With the California Emergency Regulations dropping in late November, only allowing a month and a half to get legal and licensed, many producers and cannabis businesses are scrambling to get their ducks in a row or find a city that will offer a license. There are 488 cities in California, less than 20 cities have issued licenses. That’s not a very strong foundation for a legal cannabis adult-use market. It basically puts a monopoly on adult-use sales for the few cities that had the foresight to enact regulations before the state did, like San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego and Sacramento. If you’re based in city or county like Los Angeles or San Luis Obispo, you’re for lack of a better term SOL (shit out of luck). Many people who adhered to legal practices under Prop 215 and SB 420 prior to 2017 are now faced with the reality of shutting down their business and waiting until their city issues official cannabis licenses or face fines, misdemeanors and get blacklisted for not being able to apply for a license. Even Colorado and Oregon had longer lead times to get the municipalities on board and transfer to the new regulations. One and a half months to get licensed and legal when most cities were just waiting to see what the state wanted so they could figure out what their local government was going to do, is just complete absurdity. We applaud the state for pushing through legalization, there may have been better ways to do it. So now you have small business owners, some who have been in the cannabis game for 10-20+ years, who now don’t know how they’re going to feed their families and pay their bills or employees. Some shops are losing business because they’re charging taxes and customers would rather pay the lower price regardless if a shop is legal

the math here clearly denotes a 200% increase in what the consumer used to pay $14 out the door. Literally half of the new $27 product goes to taxes. Kiva Bars are a prime example which now cost $32 out the door for their 100mg bars which used to be 180mg. But what kind of market does that create if all edibles are 100mg?

Others are shutting down to avoid the risk of losing the opportunity for a license, while others are relocating their businesses to entirely different cities hours away just to get a license. Which brings me to my next point about finding a city allowing an event license. THE END OF CANNABIS EVENTS It’s as if the state threw in the event licenses as a complete afterthought and rather than leaving it gray they wanted to regulate and tax events in this space. The fee for a state license for cannabis events (1-10 per year) is $5,000, but you must get a city to approve the event in writing, and it must take place at a location tied in with the Agricultural Association. In short, that basically means cannabis events can only happen on fairgrounds. San Bernardino’s National Orange Show Event Center was the most cannabis friendly venue in Southern California, but with San Bernardino’s recent ban on everything cannabis and no potential for any legal cannabis microevent, it puts legal cannabis events to an end. Even if the fees were more accessible and local municipalities were open to it, issuing letters of approvals, the state laws require that only retailers vend or distribute at a licensed cannabis event. The reason anyone ever put on cannabis events and bought booths was because the manufacturer was getting directly in front of the consumer, cutting out the middle man and educating the patient directly about their product. If a licensed cannabis event is nothing but dispensary retailers, what’s the point and what’s the difference between doing that and just going to a bunch of licensed shops (saving the drive to the fairgrounds)? To throw insult to injury, there is only one location in the Bay Area that will approve a cannabis consumption event, and one in Victorville.

48

HEMP CBD PRODUCTS Outlined in Prop 64, hemp CBD products are defined as non-cannabis products. If that is the case, then manufacturers would not be allowed to produce hemp CBD products in the same facility as a THC manufacturing facility. Distributors aren't allowed to distribute hemp CBD products, but yet there's a shortage on the chain of supply currently, so we are seeing licensed retailers selling hemp CBD products. It becomes unclear who will be the one to fulfill those orders after June 30th, 2018, following the end of California's emergency regulation grace period. If the consumer can acquire hemp CBD products from the health food store or any store online, paying less sales tax and no marijuana tax, what would be the incentive to buy a hemp CBD product at a licensed cannabis retailer? There are thousands of businesses that are just dying to be legal and compliant but are stuck between a rock and a hard place with either city woes or lack of clarity from the state guidelines. While the kinks will indeed be worked out eventually, this is most certainly the most uncomfortable time in the California cannabis industry. We were hoping that seeing what the other states did would give Californians the best advantage for creating the best cannabis legal system, for arguably where the best cannabis in the world is grown, sadly that's not the case. What we do know from observing the transition in other legal states, is that we are in for a wave of continuous change for the next few years, making it difficult and costly to comply.

CANNABIS STORIES

Sex, Candy & Cannabis at the AVN Awards Siouxsie Q

The Adult Video News Awards and the Adult Entertainment Expo, which take place every January at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, is more than just the largest gathering of adult industry fans and stars—for those of us who work in the industry and attend year after year, it serves as more of a perpetual trial by fire that is 20% convention, 25% family reunion, 40% senior prom, and 15% weird sex party. The only way to survive the annual ordeal and come out unscathed by the infamous “AVN flu” bug that claims dozens of new starlets each year, is to wash your hands often, keep a stash of vitamin c gummy candies in your hotel room, and swap alcohol for cannabis as much as possible. While there are plenty of folks at these events who are happily sober, I personally don’t recommend taking on such a behemoth of stimuli without a few medicinal interventions, and now that recreational use has come to Nevada, cannabis products are more accessible than ever in Sin City. For me, utilizing edibles, vapes, and good old fashioned flower are important for mitigating the anxiety that often comes with being around so many people, and topical CBD infused remedies help with the pain associated with clomping around a convention floor in six inch heels for days on end. I took the advice of thirty year adult film veteran Nina Hartley who told me on the first day of the show how important it is to always walk to your next location in flats and put heels on only once you’ve sat down to sign. I followed her strategy as best I could during the Expo, but there’s no escaping the mile long promenade down the red carpet for the awards show on Saturday night. The walk is long, and if you don’t have the right heels, or the right company, you’ll get grouchy fast. To prepare for the main event, I was gifted some Threat’s Aftercare Balm, an artisanal cannabis salve infused with lavender and arnica, that transformed my tired tootsies and got me ready for the long high heeled hike. On my way to the elevator, I ran into Ashley Manta, the Cannasexual, a sex educator who specializes in the intersections between sex and cannabis. She was kind enough to kidnap me into her room for a quick dab courtesy of Lemon Larry rosin from The Hawgs Breath Company before the madness ensued. When I arrived at the line to get in, I was greeted by a small gathering of Christian Evangelicals from the Westboro Baptist church who had come to protest the event and to remind us all what disgusting godless sinners we were. Luckily one of my red carpet compatriots had smuggled some high dose edibles from 2017 in her purse, and we peacefully munched on bites of a 1000mg Korova Bar while sending a friendly “Hail Satan” over to the haters. Between the edible, the dab, and the salve, I was set. I made it down the red carpet in one piece and even managed to make it onstage to dance with Lil Wayne right as my edible started peaking. As I made my way up to my room at the end of the night, I looked down at my high heels, still firmly planted at the end of my legs, and I felt like a champion. I had managed to avoid the fate of so many other young women who were now walking barefoot through the casino, their blistered hooves crying out for mercy. Nina Hartley’s wisdom from earlier in the week echoed in my ears. Aftercare is just as important as preparation, and in the days following the convention, I’ve been so grateful for the way fellow LGBT adult film performer Buck Angel’s product Buck’s Balm has been able to bring relief to my inflamed joints and muscles. This was my fourth time attending the event, and honestly it was the best yet. I know I’ve still got a lot to learn when it comes to surviving and thriving in the adult industry long term, but this year I learned that flats and cannabis are absolutely essential to the process. Though the Westboro Baptist Church may disagree, a weekend of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll can also be a time to reconnect with my community, grow my business, and have a blast without totally destroying my body. The moral of the story? Smoke weed and listen to Nina Hartley, always. Issue No. 42 I Page 51

Ask DR. MIKE about

MICRODOSING people are associated with early microdosing LSD around this time. But, it was probably Albert Hoffman, who not only invented LSD, but used it in small doses as a young man and encouraged this approach to others who used a potent medicine like LSD in very small doses.

WHAT IS MICRODOSING? Microdosing is taking the minimum effective amount of a drug. Which means taking the smallest amount of medicine that can positively impact the physical or mental condition of a person. WHEN DID MICRODOSING START? It could be as early as 1960, numerous

WHY IS MICRODOSING CANNABIS IMPORTANT? If you are new to it and you don’t know how much cannabis to take you can FREAK OUT...Really freak out...and not in a good way. IS MICRODOSING THE BEST WAY FOR FIRST-TIME CANNABIS USERS? Yes. It’s the best way to establish a baseline and prevent drug abuse. Once someone knows the minimal effective amount of an edible, vape pen...really any cannabis product for that matter, they can gradually

ASK DR. MIKE

HOW DO I DO IT? If you are smoking or vaping, inhale/exhale a small amount, wait 15 minutes, see how you feel‌ If you feel your body needs more, go for it. When taking edibles start with 1 5 milligrams, wait 2 hours (I know this sucks, but edibles have an extremely delayed response time) then take more if needed. DOES DOSING TRANSLATE BETWEEN SMOKING/ VAPING AND EDIBLES? No!!! Not really. A 20 mg dose of a vape pen is a much smaller dose than a 20 mg dose of an edible. This is because your body absorbs cannabis differently in your stomach and in your lungs. Be advised the effects of smoking and edibles vary drastically!!! ARE THERE DRAWBACKS TO MICRODOSING? You may not get high...real bummer right. However, starting small provides a timeline for patients to measure improvement in their condition.

Microdosing allows you to maximize therapeutic effects while minimizing side effects. WHAT ARE THE EASIEST PRODUCTS TO MICRODOSE? An easy way to microdose is with something that can be measured in very small amounts. Tinctures can be measured by the drop. Edibles like Kiva mints, are only 2.5 milligrams each providing another efficient way. Products like vape pen cartridges can also be taken in small amounts, but it is a lot more difficult to know your exact dosage. IS CANNABIS THE ONLY PRODUCT THAT PEOPLE MICRODOSE? Indigenous cultures have microdosed psychotropics for wide-ranging reasons over the millennia. The concept seemed to reach mainstream apex when doctors recommended that persons over 50 and sometimes 40 take a 25 mg aspirin daily to promote a healthy heart. While not psychotropic, small doses of aspirin can maintain healthy heart function.

US NEWS

Mainstream Media Acknowledges Cannabis Safety is About User Responsibility Megyn Kelly at the TODAY Show on NBC recently covered a segment with Jacob Soboroff covering California's Green B. Le Grand Rush. Jacob goes to Desert Hot Springs interviewing new licensees and reporting on the increase in "green zoned" real estate. In the last minute of the segment, Megyn acknowledges that cannabis safety, regardless of packaging, is about user responsibility. She uses my favorite analogy about how guns are allowed in our homes, and it's up to the parents to keep their children safe. This appears to be a major windfall of overall cannabis acceptance especially after Jeff Sessions repealed the Cole Memo, revoking protections from the Obama era for Federal prosecution in states with medical marijuana regulations. Cannabis has become quite the hot topic. Last week Jimmy Kimmel sent Guillermo to MedMen in West Hollywood to check out their recreational store, licensed and legal for adult use cannabis purchases. Netflix also premiered a documentary titled "The Legend of 420," which features all of our friends in the industry and gives a great 101 to the start of the end of prohibition, but fails to ever tell you about the actual Legend of 420 and how that started. We are going to start seeing an influx of celebrity names and more mainstream acceptance now that legalization is taking place in California. I refer to it in the current tense as most of the industry is going through a growing pain phase where only a handful of cities are actually online for adult-use. Issue 42 I Page 59

KIND B. Le Grand

The citizen-sponsored initiative prohibits growing cannabis in residential zones, authorizes and regulates medical marijuana dispensaries, and limits commercial cultivation sites to industrial and manufacturing zones with a permit issued by the city. Opponents said the measure doesn’t do enough to protect the community, while the supporters said Measure U will provide oversight and transparency. La Mesa rejected a similar ballot measure in 2012, and banned the cultivation and manufacturing of medical marijuana, and the operation of dispensaries.
