LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Greetings my friends,

Lately it almost feels like we’ve been busier than ever. Since last month we’ve been to Oklahoma for The Green on Greenwood, Long Beach for NCIA, San Francisco for New West Summit, The Los Angeles Comic Con, Santa Monica for The Civilized Games, and Jamaica for The Grand Opening of Doc’s Place International. Next month we’ll be in Las Vegas for MJBIZCon and having another awesome party so maybe we’ll see you at that. Rob Van Dam and Ta Smallz will be there so there’s definitely going to be some good pictures.

Going to Jamaica was a transformative experience. We rode horses that swam in the ocean so it almost felt like riding a Pegasus. You can read all about Jamaica, Negril, Montego Bay, Doc’s Place, Patsy’s Coffeeshop, The Rastafari Indigenous Village, and all the food and cannabis that was consumed here in our travel issue. There’s also our list of the top seven cannabis hotels, bed and breakfasts, and travel/tourism destinations for infused adventurers. It’s a very magical place made even more magical with all of the great ganja they grow there. If you’ve been watching South Park lately than you know that Tegridy’ Farms has come to play a very big and very important role in the show. We couldn’t believe we heard them mention Med Men in an episode of South Park, and it was in a really negative context. They really manage to always have their finger on the pulse of whatever is actually happening out there and the skill that they were able to blend cannabis controversy with the new plant based burger craze happening at mainstream fast food restaurants is really impressive. It seems like Tegridy Burgers, the cannabis based vegan burgers Randy

Marsh creates, would actually sell quite well if they were real. One of our cannabis hotel destinations is in Denver, Colorado and they might always do a Tegrity Farms Pop Up there. At least we hope we can dream that they might. Our new travel issue contains some very coolcontent,includingthesamegreatnews, recipes and product reviews we feature every month and a new canna crossword puzzle that’s travel themed too. We also got super stoned and saw the Zombieland feature to celebrate the Halloween season and reviewed it here. Enjoy the Travel Issue and pleasant journeys! As always, smile at your budtender, tip your delivery driver, and know your dose. “Truth is not obliged to stick to possibilities.”

CannabCo Pharmaceutical Corp., an Ontario-based company, has claimed that it has developed, PureCann, an odorless type of cannabis. But what kind of cannabis doesn’t have a smell? Cannabis typically has a distinct flavor and scent as a result of its naturally occurring terpenes. Terpenes are found in the cannabis trichomes and can also have additional health benefits, depending on which one is more prominent in the flower. Terpenes like limonene, that gives citrus fruits their specific scent/flavor, can boost your immune system, alleviate heartburns, and lower cholesterol. The CEO of CannabCo, Mark Pellicane, claims that the terpenes are affected, but does not disclose the process or its effects.

The White House Approves USDA Hemp Production Rules B. le Grand

In October, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) federal hemp production rules.

The OMB must sign off on new regulations from any federal agency. With this approval, the release of interim production hemp production regulations could come any day.

At a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing on October 17th, Agriculture Deputy Secretary Steve Censky said he expected the administration to issue hemp regulations within a few weeks.

The USDA’s federal rules are expected to include:

• Biomass transportation regulations.

While the USDA is in charge of agricultural regulations, it is unclear how the production of hemp or CBD products will be regulated. If the cultivator is licensed, will a CBD product manufacturer also need to obtain a permit to operate? Will the FDA be overseeing CBD products through the supplement market?

Despite the 2018 Farm Bill's language that states nothing in the bill authorizes ‘interference with the interstate commerce of hemp,’ law-enforcement officials in states like South Dakota and Idaho, that still consider hemp and hemp-derived CBD to be controlled substances, have prosecuted hemp transport drivers. States will have to get USDA approval first, a step in the process that won’t happen The delay in releasing federal rules for until the national guidelines are finalized regulating the cultivation of hemp are and made public.

Doc’s P lace: Jamaica’s First Federally Licensed Medical Cannabis Wellness Center & Resort Celebrates Grand Opening in Negril

heal /hi:l/ verb to become sound or healthy again.

Health, wellness and cannabis go hand-inhand, and for those cannasseurs that want to incorporate cannabis into their travel plans, there are many options becoming readily available. A few years ago, cannabis travel was just starting to become a thing. Bud and breakfast experiences became commonplace in legal states like Colorado, Oregon and Washington. If Barcelona or Amsterdam seem too far or unrealistic as short-term #goals, Jamaica is perfect

for the adventure lover or retreat seeker. It is cannabis friendly in so many ways, especially now with the opening of Doc’s Place Wellness Center and Resort and Apollon Formularies. Doc’s Place is a wellness resort that allows the consumption of medical cannabis anywhere in the resort for patients who obtained their medical cannabis from a legal licensed medical cannabis dispensary. Apollon Formularies is a federally legally licensed dispensary which leases space from Doc’s Place to provide the medical cannabis I

COVER STORY TEXT HERE products on site. Translated as, "The Land of Wood and Water," Jamaica is known for its pristine beaches, laid back island attitude, Red Stripe, exquisite rum, spicy jerk soul food, Rastafarianism, love of ganja, Reggae music, Bob Marley and the other musician Marley members of their very large family (Damien, Ziggy, Julian). Originally called Xaymaca by its indigenous inhabitants, the Arawaks or Tainos from South America, Jamaica sits just above the equator, south of Cuba, in the Caribbean Sea. Less known is the fact that the pirate history in Jamaica was very real and helped shaped the Jamaica of today. Port Royal was once known as the "Wickedest City in the World". Captain Morgan was a real pirate that pillaged and plundered, then took back his booty to share and spend in the harbors and bays of Jamaica, along with many other notorious pirates, and the lesser known Jewish Pirates. Christopher Columbus landed in Discovery Bay in 1494. He soon took over the island claiming it for Spain, only to have Spain neglect the island nation. Britain took control in the 1600s until 1962 when Jamaica was granted their independence. If you're fascinated by pirates it is most definitely a place to see at least once in your life. Jamaica amasses a total of 4.240 square miles, with two major international airports, Montego Bay and Kingston. The island vibe and way of life is highly sought by tourists around the world and outside of the flight it's more affordable than a lot of other popular tropical island destinations. Clean, fresh air and the negative ions of the ocean shore breeze make it a naturally healing environment.

in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Agriculture (who is responsible for the Cannabis Licensing Authority) as the keynote speaker, along with other dignitaries from both Jamaican political parties, international medical cannabis press, media and influencers, and live music and food. It was an amazing experience to witness how many international visitors, as well as local Jamaicans who came to show their support for the opening of such a unique place.

Doc’s Place is the only federally licensed wellness resort with a legal retail (therapeutic) dispensary on site. On the property, there are four large studio boutique hotel rooms, a seaside restaurant, a rooftop bar with a DJ, a yoga studio area, a massage area (all overlooking the ocean), a dispensary, a manufacturing and processing laboratory, and a garden plentiful with local Jamaican healing plants and herbs, all with medicinal benefits. Featured in the center of the property is a sea water infinity pool, not a salt water pool, a sea water pool that required special permission from the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA). They obtained a special permit and had to prove that by using and recirculating the sea water they weren't polluting or dumping in the ocean.

Nestled on the Caribbean sea in the cliffs of Negril, about an hour and a half drive from the Montego Bay airport, is Doc's Place International and Apollon Formularies. We wrote about their venture last year in 2018 and now they're officially open for business. October 25th, 2019 was the official Grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony, with the Honorable Floyd Green, Minister of State

This particular pool is especially great for travelers or patients who are looking for the healing properties of the sea but are unable to withstand some of the dangers of the open ocean. There is also a sea water jacuzzi. Apollon Formularies Jamaica is a legal retail dispensary on site at Doc’s Place with world class products that have won first place awards from the Best of Edibles List Awards, High Times Cannabis Cup, and the Jack Herer Cup.

Tour buses filled with tourists get dropped off on bar hopping adventures to enjoy the rooftop ocean view saloon experience at Doc's Place International. While there, patients can get a medical cannabis prescription/recommendation from licensed medical doctors and then purchase medical cannabis and infused products from the Apollon Formularies Jamaica Dispensary. If you have a medical card anywhere else in the world, it qualifies you for approval of a medical cannabis prescription/recommendation in Jamaica. Alternatively, if you don't feel like smoking or consuming medical marijuana, you can simply come by to enjoy a tropical smoothie and soak in the healing energy of the sea water pool, have a massage, enjoy a yoga class or dine in the health conscious restaurant. When you get there, you can expect a warm and friendly check-in, staff with smiles on their faces, and a breathtaking view overlooking the ocean that makes the long journey down there worth the trek. Travelers are able to request whatever they would like from the restaurant kitchen and every meal of the day is healthy, organic and preservative free. Transportation can be arranged for each guest, both to and from the airport as well as for any adventures during your stay. It's a soul transforming experience to head to another country like Jamaica to escape and relax by the sea while smoking cannabis legally and without hassle. The famous Negril sunsets are picturesque


and colorful, yet serene and inspiring. Healthy plants on site include Soursop fruit, (also known as graviola, guyabano, and in Latin America, guanábana) is the fruit of Annona muricata, a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree, is thought by some to have cancer reducing properties. It grows in tropical countries in the Americas and Carribean and is only available where it may be imported. Fresh soursop juice is made available for guests seeking extra antioxidants, helping to heal the body from the inside out.

If you're a bride or groom-to-be and qualify medically, you could have the most epic cannabis wedding or bachelor/bachelorette party. Doc's place is adults-only 18 years of age and up, which is nice because you don't have to worry about smoking etiquette in the open. The Apollon Formularies CLA (Cannabis Licensing Authority) approved processing lab is stocked and housed with over a half million dollars of state of the art extraction equipment. They use an ethanol extraction method for their processing because Apollon produces full spectrum medical cannabis oil for patients. Getting that equipment to Jamaica wasn't easy, but once they did, they immediately set themselves apart from any other lab on the island.

While ganja is medically legal in Jamaica, and can be used legally anywhere on the property of Doc’s Place, recreational use in Jamaica is decriminalized, but not legal. Possession of less than 2 ounces (56 grams), without a medical prescription/recommendation, is punishable by a fine but not incarceration. This is not an issue at Doc’s Place, since all medical cannabis products are federally legal and they are purchased with a physician provided medical prescription/recommendation at Apollon Formularies’ legal licensed dispensary. It is not legal in Jamaica to smoke in public spaces and private facilities that allow children, but it is allowed in federally legal private adult only wellness facilities like Doc’s Place. In order to legally obtain medical cannabis a doctor has to write a prescription/ recommendation and then the cannabis can be purchased at a legally licensed dispensary like Apollon Formularies. Doctors are always

In America, because cannabis is still federally illegal, medical studies and clinical trials are not generally allowed.

Miami Beach Bans Smoking Cannabis in Public

Lynn Young

Since the decriminalization of hemp in Miami, many minor Marijuana charges have been dropped or will no longer be prosecuted. Though hemp has been decriminalized, public officials have taken to banning the use of cannabis and hemp in public, since hemp and cannabis are practically indistinguishable. The city has opted to make smoking cannabis in public a criminal offense rather than using a civil citation system, which could result in the arrests of more youth and people of color. The ACLU, among other organizations, opposed the new law because of its criminal charges, claiming it should be akin to a traffic ticket. According to Miami Beach Times, “Under the city's new law, anyone observed smoking cannabis, hemp, or marijuana on a public right-of-way is subject to a fine of up to $500 and up to 60 days in county jail.” Before this the Miami Beach police had no real precedent for dealing with public cannabis consumption. Citing a specific incident, "During Columbus Day weekend, we had an individual that chose to stand on top of a police vehicle while openly consuming marijuana," Miami Beach Capt. Daniel Morgalo stated. "So had that individual not been doing that — had he not been standing on top of the police vehicle and breaking other laws — we would not have a mechanism in place at this point to deal with this specific type of behavior." With Miami being such a party destination, it will be interesting to see how it unfolds (and whether or not they’d actually be able to enforce them) and how tourists will react to the new laws.

CBD for the Season of Giving Thanks Catherine Goldberg

Edibles Magazine™ Issue 59

As we enter into the season of getting high on goodwill and gratitude, let’s talk about the part of the cannabis plant that doesn’t get you high: CBD! While it’s sourced from the cannabis plant and shares many of the same benefits of cannabis, CBD’s non-psychoactive properties can make it a great fit for healing and therapeutic uses. Thanksgiving is a time for opening our hearts, receiving blessings, and giving thanks for all that we have. A time to make the most of those things that you do have control over, and practicing being at peace with the things you don’t. This Thanksgiving season, how can you take control of those areas of your life that often have the biggest impact on our physical and mental health? That’s right, I’m talking about stress and sleep. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of constant busyness and productivity, but a shift towards slowing down and more self-care is just right as we move towards the shorter days and longer nights of the winter season.


When you’re not sleeping, your body can’t heal itself, which is the whole point of sleep! A brain that consistently isn’t getting enough sleep has a harder time making decisions, reacting to stimulus, and staying on task: all things that ultimately lead to even more stress. Stress is the biochemical reaction in your brain when things don’t go your way. As we know, life is full of things not going our way (all those pesky things we can’t control!) so we can choose to suffer, or make a change. I believe cannabis can absolutely help heal the world. But how can we help to repair the world if we aren’t taking care of and repairing ourselves? Getting a healthy amount of sleep and working to reduce stress opens up the potential for living your best life. CBD is a daily nutritional supplement. You can drink it, you can eat it, you can apply it to your skin. It doesn’t matter how you use it or when you use it, as long as you use it each day. And as companies continue to innovate, keep an eye out for the application that works for you. “Product developers all over are already trying to find the correct place that CBD fits,” said

Andrew Paladino of CBD Living, makers of the first CBD water. “Whether in a shampoo or a sucker, face cream or cotton-based bodysuit, products are already testing the market to gauge consumer affinity in the attempt to find that ‘make sense’ application.”

A daily CBD regimen can make a huge difference in the ease of falling and staying asleep, as well as the daily baseline stress level that impacts how we react to anxietyprovoking incidents and interactions small and large, all without the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD reduces inflammation, which is at the root of most of our dis-ease. Inflammation is even linked to stress, as well as side effects of autism, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, and depression. Whether you’re exploring CBD (or cannabis) in topical, edible, or any other form, it’s worth seeking out Koshercertified products. With so many counterfeit and unregulated products on the market, it’s important to be extra vigilant. Don’t be afraid to ask for a Certificate of Authorization. Any I


reputable company will be thrilled to share their lab findings with you, the consumer. "Everyone knows how important third party lab testing is when it comes to cannabis and CBD products,” said Shifra Klein, Founder of Mitzva Wellness, a company that makes CBD tinctures and lotions. “Kosher Certified products have that extra set of eyes on them. It’s an assurance that what is listed on your product is actually in your products and the procedures during production are supervised, clean and compliant." This winter, as we think about approaching each interaction with more compassion and gratitude, consider taking the time to forgive yourself for not always prioritizing your own health and wellbeing. Maybe you’ve heard of CBD and were curious to try it, but you were scared about what your friends would think. Or maybe you’re scared of how your life will be different once you’re suffering less and able to re-engage with friends and family. Either way, letting go of fear and exploring your openness to trying something new can be a great way to practice all there is to be grateful for. As the days grow shorter, the nights grow longer, and the autumn leaves give way to snow before the gift-giving holidays of winter, why not consider giving your loved ones the gift of less stress, better sleep, and overall well being? CBD lotions or salves make thoughtful gifts for those dealing with inflammation or chronic pain, while CBD water is the perfect present for someone who’s looking to destress with alternatives to alcohol. Treat your friends, family, and yourself this season. Heal yourself, then heal those around you. Together, we can do our best to help heal the world.

A Rastafari Indigenous Village in Montego Bay, Jamaica

Edibles Magazine™ Issue 59

Patrick Ian Moore


On one of our last days visiting Jamaica we had the extreme pleasure of visiting The Rastafari Indigenous Village. Located just outside Montego Bay, Rastafari Indigenous Village is a living cultural center that offers an opportunity to experience the Rastafari way of life. Whether you choose a half or full-day tour, you'll have the unique opportunity to connect with Rastafarians, and learn more about their culture and values. You'll be introduced to drum makers who create traditional drums by hand, using techniques that have been passed down through generations and you can tour an organic vegetable and herb garden and learn more about why the Rastafari choose to follow a vegan diet, and what the benefits are. You can then have a meal with the Rastafari, and taste for yourself. A small gift shop offers traditional handicrafts and jewelry. The tour concludes with a performance of traditional drumming and singing in the center of the village. Drumming and chanting ceremonies are an important ritual in the elevation to the spiritual world of Rastafari. The Rastafari village was created 10 years ago as a cultural sharing center, healing ground, and sanctuary.

or Remi mansions. The word derives from the English word "vital", with the initial "v" removed. This emphasis on the letter "I" is done to many words in the Rastafari vocabulary to signify the unity of the speaker with all of nature. The primary goal of adhering to an Ital diet is to increase liveliness. Livity, or the life energy that Rastafari generally believe lives within all human beings, as conferred from “The Almighty”. There are several different interpretations of ital regarding specific foods, but the general principle is that ital food should be natural, or pure, and from the earth, so Rastafari usually avoid food which is chemically modified or contains artificial additives like color, flavourings, and preservatives.

The food was some of the best we had to eat anywhere in Jamaica and was all Ital. Ital is food often celebrated by those in the Rastafari movement. It is compulsory in the Nyabinghi mansion though not in the Twelve Tribes of Israel

Rastafari is religious and political movement that combines Protestant Christianity, mysticism, and a pan-African political consciousness. Rastafari is an Abrahamic faith that adheres to much of The Bible, though Rastafaris worship Haile

As stated at the village: “Rastafari is rightly associated with Jamaica, and the religion was born there back in the 1930's. Rastafari view on horizontal society, equality with an identity where each is an owner onto themselves based on ability, with tourism as a tool to promote, protect and preserve the culture, an authentic Jamaican conscience for humanity.” I

CANNA TRAVEL Selassie I, former emperor of Ethiopia. Technically speaking, Rastafari is a religious movement of Jamaican origin holding that blacks are the chosen people, that Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia was the Messiah, and that black people will eventually return to their Africa. Rastafarians have distinctive codes of behavior and dress, including the wearing of dreadlocks, the smoking of cannabis, the rejection of Western medicine, and adherence to a diet that excludes pork, shellfish, and milk.


Arguably the best-known Rastafari is the late Bob Marley. The international music star introduced much of the world to the tenets of Rastafari, including the smoking of ganja, which the Rasta consider a sacred spiritual act. The sacramental smoking of ganja became legal in Jamaica in April 2015. While many Rastas choose not to cut their hair, and wear dreadlocks, it is not necessarily an absolute for believers. Irits is the village’s monthly acoustic gathering curated with the aim of creating balance by harmonizing music, food, healing, and art, with culture, preserving living aspects of Jamaican heritage, blending live music, an ital vegan cuisine and local artists and is an afternoon of healing therapies, African dancing, Kumina, traditional folklore and more. We bought some Ganja grown in the village from one of the Rastafarian artists who live there and got to taste his cold pressed coconut oil THC tincture. We also got to taste some special Ganja soaked rum that had been brewing in a jar for over two years. It was insanely strong and tasted quite good. It also felt great when we rubbed it on our skin. Ganja soaked in rum and then used in tea is another traditional Jamaican cure-all. This special mixture fixes anything from headaches to bellyaches and some swear it also relieves cancer pains. We also picked up some Ganja soap that happens to be some of the best soap we’ve ever used. This is a one of a kind experience that we cannot recommend enough. If you are ever anywhere even close to the area it is a must-visit type of place and you won’t regret it. You can check out the website at to make your own arrangements for visiting the village.

Core Peanut Butter CBD Dog Treats

Hemp Zone Filtered Smokes

Daisy Dahlia

Tommy Knowledge

At this year’s Civilized Games on The Santa Monica Pier, we met the team from Core CBD. They offer a wide range of hemp based CBD products including different flavors of dog treats. Dog Treats are the perfect way to pamper your companion while giving their bodies the support they need for happier, healthier lives. pet-safe formulas use the highest-quality CBD oil possible so they can experience the full benefits of hemp. Age and stress can have a negative impact on your four-legged buddy, from reduced mobility due to arthritis pain, to anxiety-induced behavior. Luckily, just like humans, our canine friends also have an endocannabinoid system, which can be affected by CBD products. If you want your pet to experience all the potential benefits that CBD has to offer, consider giving them Peanut Butter CBD Dog Treats from Core CBD. Each jar of Core treats contains 30 pieces that are 5mg per treat, for a total of 150 mg. Anecdotal evidence from pet owners points to an overall positive experience in using CBD to promote their pets’ health and wellness. Core Peanut Butter CBD Dog Treats have the potential to: Reduce anxiety and stressrelated behaviors such as incessant barking and destructive tendencies, increase appetite, reduce pain associated with arthritis and other joint issues, and promote overall health and wellness. These treats are 100% THC-free and independently lab tested to make sure they’re free from pesticides and insecticides. Core’s delicious peanut butter CBD Dog Treats don’t just taste good, they’re also made from top quality, organic hemp grown in the USA. They are also: 100% free from psychoactive ingredients, meaning these treats won’t get your dog “high” but they can make them feel better. Our dogs Mystie and Buddy both enjoyed them very much and certainly seemed to be in better moods after eating them.

Hemp Zone Smokes are one of the products we were introduced to while in Long Beach at The National CannabisIndustryAssociation conference at the convention center. Side note, there’s a mummy on display in a glass case if you go downstairs at The Long Beach Convention Center. I’m still not sure what it’s doing there. We couldn’t find any information whatsoever on site or online so we have no clue as to why there’s a mummy there but there is, so check it out the next time you’re stoned and wandering the LBCC. It’s very interesting. Hemp Zone smokes are made with hemp leaves instead of tobacco, making them non-addictive. Certificate of Analysis from Integrated Laboratory Solutions with the Cannabinoid Profile & Potency is available on their website. Made from both hemp and CBDoil,thesenon-psychoactivecigarettesaremuch safer than tobacco and a good alternative option for smokers. A Certificate of Analysis from Integrated Laboratory Solutions with the Cannabinoid Profile & Potency is available on their website that you can search for by batch number by scanning the code on the bottom of the box. Hemp Zone are packaged just like regular cigarettes. There’s twenty smokes per box and there all the same size as traditional cigarettes. If you never smoked cigarettes these might not exactly seem all that appealing but if you used to smoke, or are currently a smoker then you might actually find this product very interesting. They burn at the same rate and produce the same amount of smoke as normal cigarettes but they don’t smell anywhere near as strong. If this product was available back when I quit smoking I would have found it incredibly useful. Vaping and e-cigarettes aren’t for everyone and there’s some controversy surrounding vapes these days so hemp smokes are a nice alternative for those who want to give up tobacco but would like to keep blowing smoke rings.

Because they’re THC-free you can get these pets treats online, delivered to you at

Apollon Formularies Jamaica: Ringo's Gift and Lemon Haze Vape Carts - 500mg Patrick Ian Moore

high quality of the oil makes it seem even stronger. It’s the high THC product and was soothing, delicious, and really works well getting a person pleasantly high with just a few puffs. The Ringo’s Gift (RG4) is the high CBD product and is incredible at relieving pain, stress, and anxiety. Although it’s a high CBD strain there’s still a small amount of THC in the RG4 so if you don’t have a very high tolerance, there’s a good chance it will make you feel a bit stoned until your

RG4 is their 4th phenotype of Ringo’s Gift that is a 12:1 CBD to THC ratio with a 70% total cannabinoid weight containing 12% native terpenes. Ringo's Gift is a high-CBD strain that crosses Harle-Tsu and ACDC. It is named for the late Lawrence Ringo, a cannabis activist and CBD pioneer. Apollon LH02 is their 2nd phenotype of Super Lemon Haze and it’s 80% THC with 14% native terpene profile. All with an average of 42 different identified terpenes that have all been beautifully blended by nature. These two strains went incredibly well together and compliment one another perfectly. The Super Lemon Haze (LH02) has a very potent amount of tetrahydrocannabinol and the

endocannabinoid system is fully activated. Both are delicious and even more delicious when consumed together. Check out to see about visiting the dispensary and trying these amazing products when you’re in Jamaica. I

Cloud 9 Moonrock 'N Edibles: 100mg Vegan Brownie

Edibles Magazine™ Issue 59

Patrick Ian Moore


Recently, as you can see in the cover story, we went to Negril, Jamaica for the grand opening of Doc’s Place International. While there, we met two of the coolest people on the island, a husband and wife couple, Mohamed and Sativa, from Cloud 9 Green Market Delivery Service. They have an awesome heart warming story, of leaving the United States behind to seek out a healthy, organic, and community way-of-life. A lifestyle that we are losing touch with every day. They moved to Jamaica wanting to eat food they grow and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Even in the country parts of America, you might find that people are more concerned with helping themselves than helping someone in need. They left it all behind and have been in Jamaica pursuing their edibles, yoga and rastafarian. Sativa, originally from Missouri, is now a yoga instrcutor and Muhammad, originally from Sudan Africa, runs their edibles and delivery operation.

brownies are among the most classic of edibles but we always say the classics are classics for a reason.

There’s a lot available on their cannabis infused menu, including pizza, nachos, cookies, ice cream, and coffee drinks. We had their 100mg Vegan Brownie, from the “Cloud 9 Moonrock ‘N Edibles” line. Pot

They also do cannabis tours on the island, ganja infused yoga, and more. Follow them on Instagram @Cloud9_GreenMarket. You can also book a yoga class with Sativa through

The Cloud 9 brownie was very delicious. Dark, moist, full of almonds and very potent. We split it between two people and we definitely both felt the full 50mg of THC. After we ate the brownie, we spent the evening smoking and drinking blue mountain espresso at Patsy’s Cafe by the beach and listened to a lot of Bob Marley and Celine Dion. I had always assumed Bob Marley was popular in Jamaica but I never would have guessed how popular Celine Dion is, it’s very interesting. We were told that Jamaicans appreciate the best of everything and that they love Celine because she is the best and that’s logic you can’t argue with and speaking of the best, the Cloud 9 Moonrock ‘N Vegan Brownie is one of the best infused brownies we remember ever eating. If you visit Negril, you can try some of these brownies for yourself. I

Bernie Sanders Pledges to Legalize Cannabis via an Executive Order if Elected Lynn Young

Edibles Magazine™ Issue 59

With the 2020 elections coming up, Cannabis is a big factor in how candidates are framing their campaigns.


Bernie Sanders (VT) is leading the pack when it comes to cannabis legislation. He recently revealed that he plans to legalize cannabis via Executive Order. On Oct 24, at 4:20pm the senator released his extensive plans for the cannabis industry in order to keep it localized and diverse. Sanders tweeted: “Too many lives were ruined due to the disastrous criminalization of marijuana. Today I am releasing my plan to: Legalize marijuana with executive action, expunge past marijuana convictions, [and] invest in communities most affected by the War on Drugs.” Many cities and states throughout the nation have attempted to create a fair and diverse industry, but the public has yet to see the positive impacts of these programs. Sen. Sanders has always been active in pushing Cannabis legislation and in 2015 was the first to introduce a bill to the senate for the legalization of Cannabis. He also sponsored a bill with fellow

Democratic candidate and Senator Cory Booker (NJ) to declassify cannabis as a schedule 1 drug in 2017 and re-introduced the bill in the House of Rep. this past February. Though most of the present democratic candidates are for the legalization of cannabis, save former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders is the only dem with a detailed

and purposeful plan. You can find his full plan on his campaign website, but his key points are as follows: • Legalize marijuana in the first 100 days with executive action. • Vacate and expunge all past marijuana-related convictions. • Ensure that revenue from legal marijuana is I

reinvested in communities hit hardest by the War on Drugs. • Ensure legalized marijuana does not turn into big tobacco. Most of his plan involves reversing the impacts of the War on drugs in communities of color (primarily AfricanA m e r i c a n / B l a c k communities), and ensuring that those communities have access to resources that allow them to participate in the industry. His plan also involves structuring Cannabis companies like nonprofits in order to avoid the corruption and influence of the tobacco industry. Within the current industry, it is nearly impossible to start or maintain and cannabis business because of high costs, investor strong arming, and severe lack of banking solutions. Sanders’ plan addresses these issues and creates serious groundwork for national legalization. If he can fully follow through with his plan, he’ll be creating a more equitable industry that allows small business owners and people of color to participate and succeed.

In 2018, the World Health Organization released a 28 page report on CBD (cannabidiol). The general summary of the report was that CBD had no adverse side effects and is regarded as “generally safe.” They also concluded that there was do dependence or abuse potential with the use of CBD. Below is an excerpt of the report: 6. Adverse Reactions in Humans As noted above, CBD does not produce the effects that are typically seen with cannabinoids such as THC. It also failed to produce significant effects in a human 14 study of abuse potential discussed below. [34] Across a number of controlled and open label trials CBD of the potential therapeutic effects of CBD it is generally well 15 tolerated, with a good safety profile. [39, 53] Clinical trials involving use of CBD for treatment of epilepsy will be discussed in Section 9: Therapeutic Applications. 7. Dependence Potential A. Animal Studies Male mice were injected i.p. once a day for 14 days with either CBD (0.1, 1, or 3mg/kg) or delta-9-THC (1, 3, or 10mg/kg). Tolerance to the effects of THC was observed, however no tolerance to CBD at any of the dosages was observed. [54] No studies of the physical dependence potential of CBD in animals were identified. B. Human Studies Controlled, human studies regarding the potential physical dependence effects (e.g. withdrawal and tolerance) of cannabidiol

have not been reported. 8. Abuse Potential A. Animal Studies In male Sprague-Dawley rats, administration of low dose (5 mg/kg) CBD did not change the threshold frequency required for intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS). However, high dose (10 mg/kg and 20 mg/kg) CBD resulted in an elevation of the threshold suggestive of diminished reward activity. This effect is opposite to that of drugs of abuse such as cocaine, methamphetamine and opioids which lower the threshold. [55] Increased dopamine release in cells of the mesolimbic ventral tegmental area – nucleus accumbens pathway is a common effect characteristic of almost all drugs of abuse. While THC has been shown to increase the firing rate of these cells, cannabidiol had no effect. [56] It appears that CBD given alone has little effect on conditioned place preference (CPP). For example, Long-Evans rats treated with 10 mg/kg CBD showed neither CPP nor CPA. [57] However, rats treated with increasing doses of CBD and THC (1, 3, and 10 mg/kg) exhibited a trend towards CPP not seen in those given THC alone. [58] The authors attributed this to a pharmacokinetic interaction leading to higher THC concentrations rather than a change in receptor action. CBD appears not to exhibit THC-like discriminative stimulus effects. For example, in rats trained to discriminate THC from vehicle, CBD did not substitute for THC at any dose tested [57]. CBD also failed to substitute for THC in pigeons trained to I


discriminate THC from vehicle. [59] B. Human Studies While the number of studies is limited, the evidence from well controlled human experimental research indicates that CBD is not associated with abuse potential. 16 Single dose administration of cannabidiol has been evaluated in healthy volunteers using a variety of tests of abuse potential as well as physiological effects in a randomised double blind placebo-controlled trial. [34] An orally administered dose of 600mg of CBD did not differ from placebo on the scales of the Addiction Research Centre Inventory, a 16 item Visual Analogue Mood Scale, subjective level of intoxication or psychotic symptoms. In contrast, THC (10mg oral) administration was associated with subjective intoxication and euphoria as well as changes in ARCI scales reflecting sedation and hallucinogenic activity. THC also increased psychotic symptoms and anxiety. While THC increased heart rate, CBD had no physiological effects.

The authors of the study then undertook a second analysis of this data to examine the abuse liability profile of oral cannabidiol in comparison to oral placebo and active smoked cannabis. The results of this analysis demonstrated that CBD was placebo-like on all measures (including visual analogue scales, psychomotor performance such as the digit symbol substitution task, heart rate and blood pressure) compared to active cannabis, which produced abuse related subjective effects as well as a range of other effects. [61] To read the entire report visit the World Health Organization’s website to download the pdf: CannabidiolCriticalReview.pdf I

Edibles Magazine™ Issue 59

A randomized, double-blind, within-subject laboratory study was undertaken to assess the influence of CBD (0, 200, 400, 800mg, p.o.) pre-treatment on the effects of inactive (0.01% THC) and active (5.30–5.80% THC) smoked cannabis. Healthy cannabis smokers (n=31) completed eight outpatient sessions with CBD administered 90min prior to cannabis administration. Under placebo CBD conditions, active cannabis was self-administered by significantly more participants and produced significant, time-dependent increases in subjective ratings and heart rate relative to inactive cannabis. CBD alone produced no significant psychoactive, cardiovascular or other effects. Cannabis self-administration, subjective effects, and cannabis ratings did not vary as a function of CBD dose relative to placebo capsules. These findings suggest that oral CBD does not reduce the reinforcing, physiological, or positive subjective effects of smoked cannabis. [60]

Zombieland Double Tap: Cannabis Friendly Zom Com

The original Zombieland was released 10 years ago in 2009, back when the world was a much different place. The first episode of the first season of The Walking Dead on AMC was still a full year away. Jesse Eisenberg's performance as Mark Zuckerberg wouldn't be seen for another year either. Little Miss Sunshine was only a three year old movie and Emma Stone’s highest profile role at the time was “Superbad” and it would be 8 more years before she won an Oscar for La-La Land. Obama had only been president for a year at the time and cannabis in California was still very much medical. Donald Trump was still hosting The Apprentice, which was in season 8. Yes, it was a very different time and a different place to be alive but Zombieland was a hell of a movie. Beloved by both the comedy and the horror community, it was like an all American, steroid fuelled “Shaun of the Dead’ featuring Woody Harrelson, considered by many to be ‘stoner royalty’, in what may be his best role ever. Making a sequel a full 10 years later was risky, despite almost everything in theaters being a sequel, remake, or part of a franchise. I don’t remember ever thinking about a Zombieland sequel. Were there unanswered questions from the first one? Sure there were but I’d never really thought about that. I loved the first movie but hadn’t seen it since it was new. When they did announce the sequel we all got excited. The original cast was back in full force and

they added some new comedically gifted performers like Zoey Deutch, Luke Wilson, Thomas Middleditch and Rosario Dawson. It’s safe to say that if you liked the first one, you’ll like Doubletap too. It’s got everything good about the original but more of it. More guns, gore, zombies and comedy. It also has something the first film didn’t feature and that’s cannabis. Cannabis always seems like it belongs in a Woody Harrelson movie and it’s good to know they can grow good weed in the post apocalyptic wasteland even if it isn’t explained how they do it. It’s good to see people on screen with giant bags and bowls of ganja instead of just little kush bottles. We ate Oasis cannabis gummies and paired them with Budease infused tincture so we’d have some good time release effects happening as we sat and watched the movie. We still find edibles ideal for the movies for the same reason we do airplanes. You’re stuck sitting for a long time and you can’t smoke but you need to be high to get through the flight or the film. If you haven’t seen the first Zombieland, watch it before you see Double Tap. We were going to re-watch it but never got around to it but it was fine anyway. The original was easy enough to remember and the cast hadn’t lost a step. Everyone was even funnier than before, especially Woody Harrelson. It’s ironically enjoyable to see Woody playing a hippy hating antipacifist gun lover and he plays the role incredibly well. This was the best movie I’ve seen in a while and is definitely one of my very favorite sequels I never knew I wanted in my life. See it while it’s still playing or watch it once it’s streaming and don’t forget to be nice and high for it. Remember Rule Number 32: “Enjoy the little things” like eating edibles and watching zombie comedies. Go to to see clips and check showtimes/release dates. I

Edibles Magazine at The Los Angeles Comic Con

Patrick Ian Moore

This was the third year in a row The Edibles Magazine team had a booth and did a panel at The Los Angeles Comic Book Convention. This year we were once again selling rolling trays, silicone and glass pipes and bongs, cannabis themed baseball hats and it was better than ever. We had a full staff this year so doing our special Cannabis panel was easier than in years past. Returning panel guests from last year included rapper Ta Smallz and artist Richard Bell, and we welcomed first time guest Brett Carreras to The Edibles Magazine panel. Brett is the creator of The Virginia Comic Con and is one of the nation’s leading experts on comic books and it was great having him there.It was also great having Edibles Magazine creator B. Le Grand back on the panel this year. We discussed a lot of cannabis in pop culture topics and and realized there are no hip-hop songs about CBD. There are more people who attend our panel every year so it’s nice to be experiencing exponential growth that way. LACC is one of the biggest events we attend with over 100,000 guests coming every year, so it’s extra cool being the only cannabis company there. This year we brought Speed Weed with us so if people really wanted to order cannabis or infused products they could go through them and pick them up right off site. We even had some special LA Comic Con promotions that featured products by The Mystery Baking Company and Budease. It was a pretty special service to be offering. We’re already getting excited about next year and hopefully we can find some other comic cons to set up our booth at between now and then.Watching all of the mind-blowing costumes is the highlight every time. You never know what character might walk by next, might be Batman or it might be Mario, but regardless of who there’s a strong chance they might want to buy a Deadpool bong or a Family Guy rolling tray and that’s why we go back and have so much fun every year. Hopefully we’ll see you there some day. Issue 59 I Page 56 I


Crazy Rich Asians Continued from PG 55

relate to these scenarios directly, as my mother was an immigrant that came to America to escape a life of martial law and communism where she was from. My grandmother had stories of having to swim through dead bodies in a sea stained red by blood, to get to the boat, filled with more dead bodies, as a 5 year old with her family escaping to Taiwan from the Chinese war. My grandparents immigrated after their children did, so I was lucky enough to have the memories of making dumplings as a family together. My Chinese grandparents didn’t speak any English so I had to learn broken Chinese to communicate with them, and everytime I would speak Chinese they would tell me how American my accent sounded. But even in my own Chinese family, I am half-white, and even being Americanborn like my cousins, I’m still looked at as different. Not only does Crazy Rich Asians accurately tackle Chinese culture, and the guilt and judgment that takes place within their own families, it shatters any stereotype or mold that Hughiearen’t Stonefish Asians marketable in a Romantic Comedy. I actually can’t remember the last time I paid to see a rom-com in the theaters. I usually try to spare my boyfriend and we’ll stream on Amazon or Netflix some rom-com that had been released earlier this year, and we’ll save the movies like superhero films for the big screen. There was something very special about this film, and it was beyond a great cast, good acting, it really had a great storyline that expanded beyond just a boy meets girl, and happy ending. They say the best movies are based on books, and this one comes in a 3 part series. We hope that they will get greenlight for the next two studio releases, and we hope this sets a new precedent on casting with representation. They also say there are no bad actors, just bad casting. Henry Golding plays handsome and charming, so believably well in his first movie role. Constance Wu plays a perfect “banana,” a term used in the film to reference her as “yellow on the outside and white on the inside.” Awkwafina plays the comic relief so well, I feel like everyone has a friend like her in their group they can relate to. I don’t want to give too many spoilers, but its funny, it’s moving, it’s believable and takes place in a modern day setting that feels real to the viewer. It is just one culture tackled, and hopefully so many more to come. It feels like a special time in history for films like Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians to be made. In Crazy Rich Asians, you could replace Asians with black, Greeks, latino, white, etc. and it would still be relatable because the story is about identity, knowing who you are, tradition, approval from your family and following your heart. I read and heard other press interviews about the movie before I saw it, and the best way it’s been put but John Chu the director himself, by the end of the movie you don’t even notice you’re watching a film about Asians, you’re watching a great story. That’s why you should see it, it’s a great film, it’s making history, and you get to see the 1% of the 1% of the opulence in Asia. Issue 59 I Page 58

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.
