Kings of Cannabis … RIP

John Oliver john@weedaficionadomag.com EDITOR

THERE IS A COMPELLING NEWS SEGMENT on VICE, which airs on HBO (and HBO Go for those with streaming devices), titled “Kings of Cannabis,” which outlines Green House Seed Company’s epic quest to find rare strains of marijuana across the globe. Not familiar with the Green House Seed Company (GHSC)? In 1992, GHSC founder Arjan Roskam opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since channeled his marijuana obsession and breeding skills into a multi-million-dollar empire. You might not know Roskam by name, but you’ve probably smoked his cannabis. For more than two decades, he bred some of the most popular weed strains in the world, including Super Silver Haze, White Widow and others. VICE traveled with Roskam and his crew of strain hunters into the Congo to search for the country’s rarest types of cannabis, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower’s terms, these pure strains are called “landraces” and they are incredibly valuable because their genetics have not been tainted by others. Roskam and crew undertake a perilous journey, trudging through jungles and over rugged terrain, and having to bribe local militias, police and tribesmen with cash. At any moment, you get the sense that his crew is only minutes from an unceremonious death at the hands of an angry warlord who was insulted by Roskam’s payola. Spoiler alert: After an arduous seven-day journey, Roskam and crew ultimately find a large field of adulterated Congo sativas and they rejoice. Hamilton Morris, the VICE correspondent who traveled with the weed hunters, posed an intriguing moral and ethical question. Does Roskam feel guilty for paying locals only a few hundred dollars, when his company stood to profit millions of dollars exploiting the new strain? It was tantamount to paying an oblivious 80-year-old woman $50 for a rare Babe Ruth card she was selling at her garage sale. But Roskam’s journey wasn’t without risk … financial, business and otherwise. On a return trip to the Congo, GHSC’s head breeder Franco Loja contracted Malaria and died days later. The 42-year-old Italian was sort of like the Crocodile Hunter of cannabis and, like Steve Irwin, Franco died doing what he loved most – hunting for rare marijuana strains. The VICE segment is a fascinating tale of the potential risks and rewards of combing the planet to find new strains of cannabis, and just how incredibly complex weed genetics can be … definitely worth a watch for weed connoisseurs. Please enjoy the issue and send me an email if you have any comments or questions. Best, Kind regards,

House Bill Seeks to Reclassify Marijuana BIPARTISAN LEGISLATION PROPOSED in the House during April would make marijuana a Schedule III drug, removing cannabis from its current standing as a Schedule 1 substance alongside deadly contraband including ecstasy and heroin. By reclassifying marijuana in the same category as anabolic steroids, Congress would “make it easier for ill patients and scientific and medical researchers to obtain marijuana,” according to the bill’s authors. On the heels of a bicameral effort to outright legalize weed offered a week earlier, the proposal by Florida Reps. Matt Gaetz, a Republican, and Darren Soto, a Democrat, aims to roll back the federal government’s ongoing pot prohibition to a lesser extent by removing existing hurdles said to be hindering researchers’ ability to understand the plant’s potential benefits. The federal government currently considers marijuana a Schedule I narcotic, a category prescribed to substances which “have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision and a high potential for abuse.” Nonetheless, 28 states and the nation’s capital have approved laws allowing for residents with certain conditions to be medically treated with marijuana. By reclassifying marijuana as a Schedule 3 substance, the bipartisan duo from Florida intend to put weed in a category reserved for substances that “have a potential for abuse less than substances in Schedules I or II and abuse may lead to moderate or low physical dependence or high psychological dependence.” According to Mr. Gaetz, the reclassification would also remove existing hurdles that make it difficult for researchers to work with marijuana, as well as obstacles that prevent the cannabis industry from doing business with licensed banks. “This drug should not be in the same category as heroin and LSD, and we do not need to continue with a policy that turns thousands of young people into felons every year. Nor do we need to punish the millions of people who are sick and seeking medical help — from pain, from muscle wasting, from chemotherapy-induced nausea” Mr. Gaetz said in a statement.

Public Support for Weed Legalization Surged in 2016 Public support for marijuana legalization surged in 2016, according to data released from the General Social Survey. Last year, 57 percent of Americans told the survey’s pollsters that they “think the use of marijuana should be legal,” up from 52 percent in 2014. The numbers from the General Social Survey — a large nationwide survey conducted every two years and widely considered to represent the gold standard for public opinion research — comport with other national surveys last year, which found support ranging from the upper 50s to low 60s. But the survey indicates two significant fault lines when it comes to marijuana policy: age and political party. Fully two-thirds of respondents ages 18 to 34 supported legalization in the survey, as well as majorities of those ages 35 to 49 and 50 to 64. But seniors 65 and older stood apart, with only 42 percent supporting legalization. On the other hand, support among all age groups has risen by similar amounts in recent years. In 2008, for instance, only 40 percent of the youngest respondents and just over 21 percent of seniors supported marijuana legalization.

CANNABIS IS DECRIMINALIZED IN PARTS OF DISNEY If your plans this summer include heading to the Disney property that covers land from Osceola to Orange County in Florida, and you get caught with anything less than twenty grams of cannabis, you might not face jail time if you’re in Osceola. Instead,


STATE GOVERNORS ASK FEDS TO MAINTAIN STATUS QUO

Breaking the numbers down by political affiliation tells a slightly different story. In the early 2000s, opposition to marijuana legalization was more or less a bipartisan issue. Only 29 percent of Democrats and 26 percent of Republicans voiced support for legal weed in 2000. Since then, support for legalization among Democrats and independents has risen much faster than among Republicans. In 2016, more than 60 percent of the former two groups supported legal marijuana. Among Republicans support stood at only 40 percent, a gap of more than 20 percentage points between Democrats and independents on the one hand, and Republicans on the other. Moreover, support for legalization among Republicans has leveled off over the past two years, rising just 1 percentage point since 2016. But support among Democrats rose by 3 points, and independents saw an even greater 8-point jump.

you may only be looking at a fine of $100, officials are saying, after an ordinance decriminalizing small amounts of cannabis was passed unanimously by Osceola County commissioners.

Four governors of states where voters have legalized marijuana for recreational use are asking the Trump administration to leave in place an Obama-era agreement that gave exemptions to the legal pot industry. In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the governors asked the Justice Department to maintain a 2013 agreement, known as the Cole Memo, and guidance issued by the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The Cole Memo, named for former Deputy Attorney General James Cole, laid out priorities for federal prosecutors in states where marijuana had been legalized for recreational use. The memo advises prosecutors to avoid strict enforcement of federal prohibitions on marijuana, in deference to state law. “Overhauling the Cole Memo is sure to produce unintended and harmful consequences,” the governors wrote. “Changes that hurt the regulated market would divert existing marijuana product into the black market and increase dangerous activity in both our states and our neighboring states.” The letter was signed by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) and Alaska Gov. Bill Walker (I). The FinCEN guidance lays out criteria under which financial institutions can provide services to marijuana-related businesses. Because federal law still considers marijuana a banned substance, many major banks are reluctant or refuse to do business with the marijuana industry. That has led some businesses to operate largely in cash, raising concerns about safety and crime, concerns the FinCEN guidance is meant to alleviate. The Trump administration has offered mixed messages, and no clear guidance, on its plans for marijuana regulation. Sessions is a marijuana hard-liner who once joked he objected to the Ku Klux Klan because they smoked pot. But during the presidential race, Trump said he was inclined to leave marijuana regulation up to the states. Governors in states where marijuana is legal have voiced concern that their states may be subject to federal lawsuits or crackdowns by federal agents. Most governors of states where pot is legal, including Hickenlooper and Inslee, opposed the ballot measures when they came up, though they now say their voters have spoken. Other state officials have said they would consider legal action to defend their laws in case of a federal crackdown. In an interview, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) defended the Cole Memo.

THE

Chronicles The Jupiter Hotel in Portland Announces it is Cannabis Friendly

OREGON NEWS

Oregon Issues First Recall for Tainted Marijuana The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) announced its first recall of pesticide-tainted recreational cannabis, a situation that underscores the need for reliable record keeping and clear communication about contaminated products. The commission said in a news release that samples of Blue Magoo cannabis grown by Emerald Wave Estate tested positive for excess levels of pyrethrins, a chrysanthemum-based insecticide that also can be made synthetically. The tainted cannabis was shipped to a retailer, Buds 4 U in Mapleton, Oregon, before the pesticide test results were recorded in the OLCC’s tracking system, the commission said. The retailer sold 82.5 grams of the contaminated product to 31 customers between March 8-10 before the store noticed on March 10 the tracking system results showing the marijuana had tested for pesticide residue. The store immediately halted sales of the product and issued a voluntary recall. No one who used the tainted marijuana has reported any illness, the OLCC stressed.

Recreational Marijuana Home Delivery Launched in Oregon Oregon’s recreational marijuana businesses are leading the way in the U.S. rec industry with the advent of a new service: delivery of adult-use cannabis to a customer’s home. According to Portland TV station KGW, Jupiter, located at marijuana customers can now order from licensed dealers and have product delivered to their home.

The Jupiter Hotel is a mid-century, renovated motor inn-turned-boutique hotel in the heart of Portland, Oregon. The 81 modern guestrooms connect guests to the vibrancy of Portland at affordable rates. The hotel has been featured by national magazines such as Elle Décor, Travel + Leisure, GQ and more.

Legal deliveries of adult-use cannabis are a new phenomenon. Medical cannabis deliveries, by contrast, are permitted in certain places in the United States. Oregon’s Liquor Control Commission has issued delivery permits to 117 retailers across the state, with 13 in Portland. The commission delayed the launch of delivery services until last month. According to WCSH, rules for delivery include: • Cannabis businesses can only deliver to residents in the city they’re licensed in. • Cannabis must be transported in a safe and secured to the delivery vehicle. • The vehicle can carry no more than $3,000 worth of cannabis. • Businesses can’t deliver to certain location, including motels, campgrounds or dorms. • Delivery customers must be at least 21. • Customers must sign for deliveries. • Deliveries can be made only between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Oregon Bar Now Recognizes Cannabis Law

“I am truly excited to work with the folks at Weed Aficionado Magazine. My philosophy is that I am a true believer in positive thinking, and hope to motivate others to see that their goals are achievable! I am a cannabis advocate; currently working with a local political issue committee, promoting legal medical and recreational cannabis sales in my community. I am in the process of opening a head shop, reopening my silk screening business and launching an apparel line all this summer! I embrace QeenBee as a mindset. An empowering reminder that you are strong enough to be a leader in your own life. In your own Hive.”

Some lawyers specialize in criminal law, some in family law, some in corporate law. Now, the Oregon State Bar has created a Cannabis Law Section to “assist lawyers in navigating this growing area of state and federal law,” according to a recent news release. The Bulletin reports that the cannabis section, whose organizers spent more than a year gathering support, already has 71 members, according to the state bar. Oregon is No. 3 behind Colorado and Michigan in recognizing a cannabis legal specialty. Cannabis businesses have the same legal needs as any other enterprise, from setting up agreements among partners, creating the business framework, navigating local land-use laws and staying in compliance with state laws on everything from pesticide application to product packaging. Plus, because marijuana remains illegal under federal law, marijuana businesses face further complications in banking, taxation and other areas. Oregon voters in November 2014 approved Measure 91, which legalized adult-use recreational marijuana. Oregon does not certify lawyers as specialists in a field. Creating a law section within the bar means giving lawyers opportunities to network, communicate with one another on emerging issues and schedule continuing legal education. The bar has 42 sections for other legal specialties, from aviation law to Indian law to taxation. www.weedaficionadomag.com

POTLIGHT GOING GREEN ALBANY Weed Aficionado took some time to sit down with the staff of Going Green Albany to see what makes them such a great location. WAM: What year did you open your doors for business? GGA: We opened our doors in early June 2014. WAM: What would you say is the reason behind your success in this area? GGA: Our knowledgeable staff, our friendly service and our wide selection of products. WAM: Do you service both medical and recreational now? GGA: Yes we do. We just recently opened up to recreational on February 9th; we were med only before then. We were the first and only shop for a while in the county and the first rec shop in the county when it went legal. WAM: What makes GGCC stand out from other dispensaries around town? GGA: Our convenient location right off the I-5 and our large selection of recreational products. We have four stores under the going green brand: Sweet Home, Grande Ronde, Albany and West Coast Inc. WAM: Are there plans to open any new locations this year? GGA: Nothing planned, but we are always looking. WAM: Your store has been in the middle of a relatively dry area. Do you think it’s your medicine, your location or your staff that brings people in? GGA: It would be a solid combination of all three. Our staff is really friendly and show genuine interest and concern for our patients. Our location is right off the I-5, so super convenient for any traveler passing through the area. And our flowers are fresh from some of the top recreational growers in the area. WAM: What’s new for GGCC in 2017 that we should look for? GGA: More potent products … and thoughts on a going-green fashion line are up in the air. WAM: How would you describe your relationship with the local Oregon growers and producers? GGA: We maintain strong and friendly relations with all of our vendors and work on consistently having strains on our shelves. WAM: Do you think that tax revenue from recreational is making a difference in Oregon? GGA: Absolutely. There were 11 million pounds of recreational marijuana sold in Oregon in the first quarter alone. The dollar amount is still being totaled, but 11 million pounds is definitely a great start for Oregon’s recreational sales. WAM: Do you believe that since the start of recreational sales it has impacted the criminal element in your area? GGA: It’s still too early in this young emerging industry to have statistics about the local crime rates. Recreational has only been legal since November 11, however we have seen a positive outlook in the local communities since opening our doors to recreational.

A Shepherd

OF THE

How natural forest ecosystems provide hope for surviving the post-modern epoch BY ANDREW MOUNT, THE GREEN MAN

IN

a  n idyllic 180-acre woods situated near Lake Selmac lives one of the great treasures of the ecology movement. Orville Camp is this singular pioneer of real solutions to all that ails our society and the environment. Of course, Camp will be the first to tell you that it is only by seeing through nature’s eyes that his state of profound awareness has been achieved.

Among champions of the wooded lands of Southern Oregon, Camp is no mere idealist or philosopher. He practices what he preaches, having been recognized by the Sierra Club and published in international Ecoforestry literature for his forefront stance on sustainability. With his long-time partner, Mary Camp – through a community organization known as Deer Creek Association – he has played a central role in arresting the industrial timber colossus from degrading lands and poisoning watersheds for well over 30 years. However, as we shall see, their crusade has only just begun … As a child in the 1930’s & 40’s, Camp never left the haven of his hunter-gatherer lifestyle until he was seven years old. By the time he was in high school, his memories center around being a slave to agriculture and forestry, and of killing every wild animal the family encountered because these creatures wanted everything they had. This was before the age of herbicides and mass-media. This was a simpler time, yet the writing of ecological deficits and debt slavery was on the wall. After serving in the military during the Korean War where he gained a knowledge of electronics, a brief stint at school in Corvallis, as well as being the owner/operator of several successful electronics businesses, Camp returned to his roots in Southern Oregon. In 1967, he established his own homestead on Camp Creek (named for his family) where he remains today. Going on to teach for 13 years the art and science of road-building for sustainable forestry systems, Camp employed a method he calls “Contour Concentric Looping Access” throughout the Pacific Northwest as far north as British Columbia. This practice retains the integrity of the woodland system, as opposed to typical forestry roads which, according to Camp, “do not work.” On land his family had worked since the early 1900’s, he also practices sustainable land stewardship and was voted Tree Farmer of the Year in 1978 by the Illinois Soil and Water Conservation District, and again in 1979 by Josephine & Jackson Counties. In 1984, Camp wrote the seminal pamphlet: “The Forest Farmer’s Handbook” of which 5000 copies were printed. His philosophy has since evolved to become ECOSTRY, an ecosystem approach to shepherding the woods defined as assuming responsibility for Natural Ecosystem Communities. “Forest Management doesn’t work,” says Camp. “Forestry externalizes costs, while Ecostry externalizes benefits.” The underlying mechanism of the forest community is what Camp calls “trait-environment compatibility” which gives rise to his Natural Selection Alternative to forestry, a genuine solution to the wicked-problem of industrial timber harvesting. It is Camp’s contention that all forestry practices are tantamount to agriculture in the forest, which is destructive to living systems. Whether it be thinning, so-called ‘regeneration,’ density management or fuels reduction, none of these practices respects Nature’s own principles in Camp’s view. For instance, it is known to keen observers of natural systems that Old Growth (late succession forest) is the most fire-resistant system. Whereas if we listen to the mythologies touted by the BLM or the US Forest Service,

www.weedaficionadomag.com

these systems must be “managed” to guard against catastrophic fire events. This is a clear deception in the eyes of Mary and Orville Camp that they have been directly challenging for years, and with the support of over 18 environmental organizations’ comments on the BLM, revised management plans for Western Oregon. In the modern day, we now “prioritize the pursuit of money over relationships that sustain natural ecosystems,” says Camp. In 2008, a clear-cut on adjacent land destroyed the Camps’ abundant spring-water source. In 2010, herbicide poisoning by the same company killed all the fish in their Coho spawning pond and thrust Camp into a 3-year battle with liver toxicity. All of this in the name of “sustained yields” from forestry practices, ignorantly denying the tremendous ancient life that resides under the forest floor. He calls the use of technology to achieve society’s narrow ends “Bio-leveraging,” and believes it is the foundation of the 6th Great Mass Extinction, now globally underway. “Economic health is synonymous with ecological health,” affirms Camp. “Most people have lost the Biosphere-Mind-Body connection. Humans are the most survival-illiterate species, and we have now likely destroyed over half of the planet’s forests. In the Illinois Valley alone we have easily lost 80% of our wildlife populations.” Camp’s Natural Selection Alternative to forestry respects the trait diversity of the forest, wherein some trees have greater adaptability than others due to their inherent environmental compatibility. In sustainably harvesting trees from the forest, Camp only selects those specimens that are already being selected-out by the forest itself. “Dead trees that have been naturally selected have up to 5 times the value of lumber in them

as fast-growing (farmed) species. You can achieve optimal productivity if you wait until the tree has died before harvesting.” Not only do natural arboreal ecosystems stand as a primary bulwark against climate change and ensure adequate water resources for communities that live near them, the potential economic benefits of ecotourism and human development are not insignificant. Natural Resource Economist Ernie Niemi has performed a thorough cost-benefit analysis on the value of Oregon’s forests to present and future generations. He shows that since harvests have stabilized in recent years, and due to the permanent decline of jobs in the timber sector, our state’s economy is no longer dependent upon forestry for its prosperity. Oregon’s unparalleled biological diversity contributes to the new wave of “amenity-driven growth” that increasingly attracts new residents to our quality of life, not specifically to find jobs or enhanced incomes. Studies have also shown that between 1 in 5 and 1 in 2 logs cut in Oregon today are exported to China, which most certainly does not create sustainable jobs or build the wealth of our communities. Camp’s view is that these ecosystems, when left intact, are so much more prosperous that his team of fellow advocates are forming an Ecostry Cooperative to combine small-scale wood product manufacture with recreational uses to provide a long-term sustainable model, restoring mutually beneficial relationships between natural and human communities. The Camps’ efforts along with the Deer Creek watershed community, Sierra Club and others, to propose alternative solutions and their fierce opposition to wholesale logging of

ORVILLE AND MARY CAMP, PIONEERS OF FOREST SUSTAINABILITY IN OREGON.


the ecosystems where they live, have been successful in stopping the piecemeal destruction of several areas of woodland over the past 30 years. Yet now there is a new threat on an entirely different scale… The recently proposed timber sale known as Pickett West is slated to destroy nearly 13,000 acres, including 2,500 acres of late successional reserve. The planning area encompasses a total of 200,000 acres, approximately half of this area being managed by Medford/Grants Pass BLM, which proposes to allow commercial logging and so-called ‘regeneration’ logging in sensitive areas along tributaries of the Rogue River from North Applegate to Galice. The potential devastation to both scenic areas and wildlife habitat are costs the industrial timber concerns have never properly accounted for in their own analyses of these activities. Several organizations, including the Applegate Neighborhood Network and Klamath Forest Alliance have been monitoring this project’s progress and are sounding the alarm that important Coho and Steelhead habitats will be adversely affected, as well as the health of the region’s watersheds. The BLM is scheduled to release an Environmental Assessment (EA) as early as May 2017 subsequent to which there will be a 30-day public comment period on preferred alternatives. The Pickett West logging plan includes the Deer Creek watershed and threatens the last of its late successional communities. Orville Camp makes it very clear that destroying canopy does not reduce fire risk. The carbon storage and other ecosystem functions of a mature stand of trees is dependent upon the ability of “plant roots to recycle topsoil energy back into living energy systems,” says Camp. “Dead organisms such as trees can sustain more life after death than before, and do so for a longer period of time.” Also, once the canopy is removed, microclimates that prevailed in the understory are lost and structures that sustain “species trait-environment compatibility” are disrupted. These structures cannot be rebuilt by humankind, nor can we randomly select healthy trees that are suitable for harvest as “dominant species are only determined by natural selection,” Camp asserts. “Unless a full life-cycle is observed, it is difficult to predict which trees have the dominant genes.” So how does one practice Ecostry and the Natural Selection Alternative to forestry? It is simple: identify areas where not to have any extraction; determine which resources can be extracted without degrading systems; and if access is needed, employ a Contour Concentric Looping Access system that retains natural infrastructure connectivity. The overall cost of such practices is far less, both in economic and ecological terms, overcoming liabilities to our communities. “We have no management costs,” insists Camp, “because we don’t manage the forest.” In these times of resource depletion and general economic uncertainty, a new paradigm of Natural Capitalism is needed. Orville Camp and his team of practicing Ecosters are links in a chain of 21st Century hunter-gatherers who continue to resist the predatory commercial logging practices of old because they are simply too destructive to living systems. When we preserve these systems for future benefit, everyone can be assured of prosperity, not merely the few in a single generation who have the temerity to fly in the face of Nature’s Law.

BUDOF THE MONTH PRIMO STOUT

HYBRID

Primo Stout

Ps

PRIMO STOUT was featured in our ‘Strain Report’ last issue for good reason to be selected as the ‘Bud of the Month’ in this 420 Issue! This strain will knock your socks off (figuratively speaking)! Crossed between Girl Scout Cookie and Primo OG then bred back to GSC giving this strain one of the highest levels of THC that we have seen at 29%. As a hybrid Primo Stout is an indica dominant flower that will relax you instantly! This Indica-dominant hybrid is known to be quite spacey, creating a bit of a cerebral mindwarp. This makes it difficult for some to focus on a task longer than a few moments without conditioning. When you first look at the buds, they appear to be dark and tight, with a great flavor that can be described as brown sugar and pepper spice with a slight nutmeg and earthy undertones. What Carl Spackler had to say about this strain … “This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.” …Ok so maybe it’s not the same cross, but the effects are spot on!

Purple Haze

Jimi Hendrix’s Legacy Lives on in his Brother … and Medicated Macaroons BY BUSTER BLAKENEY

30

APRIL/MAY 2017

www.weedaficionadomag.com


I

 w  asn’t really sure what to expect when I was asked to interview Leon Hendrix, brother of one of rock ‘n’ roll music’s greatest luminaries and newly-minted cannabis entrepreneur. They’d also asked me to take a tour of the Purple Haze Properties, the company through which Hendrix is launching a line of Jimi-inspired cannabis lifestyle products. I’m more than a fan of Jimi Hendrix; I’m a devotee. I can’t count the times I’ve watched his face-melting performance of “Like a Rolling Stone” at the Monterey Pop Festival, and it was a rare day in high school when I didn’t listen to Are You Experienced from start to finish at least once. So to say I was a little skeptical would be an understatement. But my skepticism started to fade as I waited in the Purple Haze Properties lobby in the heart of the Sunset Strip, not far from where in 1967 The Doors might be jamming at the Sea Witch, or Phil Spector’s limo would cruise by. Or if you were very lucky, run into the legend himself — Jimi Hendrix. On the walls of the PHP offices hangs multiple portraits of Jimi, many of them done by their in-house artists, alongside mockups for new products ranging from medicated macaroons (with aptly-named flavors like “Foxy Lady” Strawberry and “Purple Haze” Blueberry) to cannabis-infused olive oil (naturally punned “Burning the Midnight Oil”). The atmosphere is one of business, to be sure, but Jimi’s essence seems to permeate the place like so much weed smoke. And then I meet Leon. He greets me, his manner echoing that of Jimi’s playful coyness in interviews. “Hey man. What’s your name?” “Buster,” I tell him, expecting a laugh or the double take, a response I’ve come to expect. Instead, his eyes go wide. “That’s my brother’s name!” he exclaims. “He never answered to James.” He’s referring to Jimi’s confusing history of endless name changes. Jimi was born Johnny Allen Hendrix, but his father, upon return from the Army, changed it to James Marshall Hendrix. “Johnny was my mom’s boyfriend’s name,” Leon tells me. “My dad couldn’t stand it.”

But his longest-lasting nickname was yet to come. Leon and Jimi’s respite from relative poverty in Seattle came from the local movie house where, for a nickel, the brothers would watch Flash Gordon serials starring Buster Crabbe. Jimi decided then and there that his name would be Buster, and upon returning home, wrapped himself in a blanket for a cape and promptly jumped out a window. “Buster busted his ankle,” he laughs with a grin at the cherished memory. As I talk to Leon, it becomes clear that regardless of what history, the public, or lawyers say, he believes that he and his children are the closest thing to true descendants of Jimi, who died childless. Even Leon’s son, “Little Jimi”, who was born on what would have been Jimi’s 42nd birthday, believes there’s something cosmic tying the whole affair together. Though Little Jimi favors mixing boards to guitars, there’s something indisputably similar to his rock star uncle, and I realize that Leon and his family are continuing Jimi’s legacy the best way they know how. But if Leon is the soul of Purple Haze Properties, Andrew Pitsicalis, the company’s CEO, is the heart and the brains. Cheery and wide-smiling, Andrew greets me in his offices where a giant LED TV with the Purple Haze Properties logo splayed across it hangs on one wall, and several ornately-blown glass bongs lining another. “Functional art,” he corrects me before taking a rip from one of them that would make Willie Nelson balk. He grins again as he exhales, and for a moment, my brain has trouble reconciling the cloud of weed smoke billowing from the portly, maybe-middle-aged guy smiling back at me like a teenager. Quiet intelligence emanates from his eyes, drawing me in despite the obscurity of it all. Pitsicalis fires up the TV on the wall and starts to explain that Purple Haze Properties is much more than just a line of Jimi-branded weed paraphernalia and tchotchkes; a statement he soon backs up with his slideshow presentation on the large flat screen. He explains the multi-pronged affair in detail. There are three divisions — Jimi’s

www.weedaficionadomag.com

APRIL/MAY 2017

31


Edibles, Jimi’s Genetix, and Jimi’s Meds — each focusing on a different product line and revenue stream. Jimi’s Edibles is their culinary division, offering the aforementioned macaroons and olive oils alongside dozens of other products. I scan the designs and the names of each delicious-sounding, cannabis-infused treat: Maui Sunset saltwater taffy, New Rising Sun breakfast bars, Traffic Jam jelly spread, and Whammy Bar Ice Cream Bars. There are even cannabis-oil-infused Kale Chips, for the healthconscious stoner in your life. I silently resolve to ask Pitsicalis for samples of everything on the list before we move on to Jimi’s Genetix, the line of strains influenced by both Jimi’s music and the spirit of popular buds of the 60s and 70s. Leon tells me of the popularity of Panama Red, one of his and his late brother’s favorites, and possibly the most celebrated pot strain of the rock ‘n’ roll era. But Pitsicalis is no stranger to pot history, either, having displayed a green thumb at an early age to go along with his business acumen. Another grin spreads across Pitsicalis’ face as he tells me of his first horticultural endeavor, a backyard affair in the mid 90s when he was still an amateur enthusiast. “I still got a P out of it,” he whoops proudly. But the evidence of how far he’s come is plain to see as he tosses me a pack of prerolleds made from one of their Jimi’s Genetix strains. Adorning the pack is a hologram of Jimi waving to a crowd at Woodstock. As kitschy as it sounds, part of me can’t help but smile at how awesome the little touch is. It’s almost as awesome as the jar of Maui Sunset that Pitsicalis cracks open for me next. “You really smell those lovely floral, citrusy notes,” he swoons with the enthusiasm of a winemaker explaining one of his better vintages. I nod and smile and try to palm a particularly juicy nug. “You can just have that,” he says. I realize that his cheery demeanor isn’t entirely independent of the entrepreneur/ businessman running a successful brand.

The third division Purple Haze Properties is developing is Jimi’s Meds, a CBD-focused line of cannabis medications for patients such as cancer sufferers and those seeking a safer alternative to system-wrecking pain meds. Pitsicalis and Leon’s demeanor changes as they explain the Meds division, and the air of passionate, giggly enthusiasm is promptly replaced by one of serious commitment to care. Often skeptics hear the term “patient” to describe marijuana users looking to get around the law, but Pitsicalis assures me that a lot of these don’t have psychoactive effects. “That one is just CBDs. Just pain relief,” he says, passing me a beautiful pink macaroon. Other products still are designed to cater to the cannabisas-superfood market. “It’s like a wellness shot when you go to a smoothie place,” Pitsicalis explains. “You pay a little extra for the supplement that calms you or boosts your creativity.” But the crowning jewel in the Hendrix-Cannabis strata is Jimi’s Lounge, a planned property on the Hollywood Boulevard strip that will be a live music venue, cannabis lounge, and retail location. “We’ve already bought the building,” he beams. “It’s an awesome location right in the heart of Hollywood, and we’ve got guys putting up millions of dollars to build out the space.” The space he’s referring to sounds like a rock ‘n’ roll cannabis enthusiast’s Mecca. It’s no small wonder that his presentation decks project over $100 million in revenue by year five. “Imagine being able to check out awesome live music, then step into a medication lounge and being able to pick up some Captain Coconut and light up, hassle-free, then head back in to catch more rock ‘n’ roll.” He’s caught up in his vision, and for a minute, Leon and I dream along with him. “I think Jimi could get down like that,” I say. Leon and Pitsicalis nod knowingly, smiles playing along their faces.

I think Jimi could get down like that...

stoner 7

Magnificent

flicks

Well, it’s that time of the season again ... no, not Christmas. We’re talking smoking trees, not decorating them. 4/20 is just around the corner, and in order to celebrate that bowliest of holy days, we’ve compiled a list of our seven favorite movies dedicated to our favorite herb. Why seven movies for 4/20? I dunno, why do you ask so many questions? How about you just shut up, spark a J, and fire up your Netflix queue? OK, here we go.

7

Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, 2004. For a lot of us in the millenial demographic, this was one of the first real stoner movies that we could call our own. Roldy and Kumar, a square accountant and his fuckup best friend in their early 20s, were pretty perfect heros for the internet generation. More importantly, their weed-fuelled quest for White Castle is one that’s familiar to pretty much anybody who’s lit a J before: when you have your heart set on something, you’ll do whatever it takes to get it - even if it is something as mediocre as a White Castle burger. Oh, and it also features Neil Patrick Harris in his best performance ever as a coked-up, car-stealing version of himself.

6

Half-Baked, 1998. Dave Chappelle’s stoner opus is, honestly, pretty dumb. Basically, Chappelle’s friend kills a diabetic police horse by feeding it candy, so he has to pull a heist of the medical-grade cannabis labs where he works to raise money for his buddy’s bail. Twenty years later, it barely holds up. But watching Half-Baked is like finding some old-ass weed in your stash drawer — sure, it’s super dated, pretty weak, and doesn’t really compare to that fire you get from a dispensary, but in spite of all that, it still makes you giggle.

5

Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 1982. Sean Penn’s turn as high school stoner Jeff Spiccoli was so on-point that he basically created the persona that all future high school stoners would look to. It’s so iconic that subsequent movies like Dazed and Confused feel like the director just told his actors “Go watch Ridgemont High and do that.” The movie’s not really about weed, but given that it’s got pretty much the best stoners of all time (and Phoebe Cates’ boobs) in it, Fast Times at Ridgemont High has a special place in history, and our hearts.

Super Troopers, 2001. A hundred pounds of killer weed. A dead body with a chimp tattooed on her ass. A group of chronically-bored highway patrolmen. Who knew that the results would be so insanely funny? This is the movie that put Broken Lizard (the comedy group that gave us Beerfest) on the map, and with good reason. There are so many hysterical, quotable moments (“I don’t want a large Farva!”) that this movie is an almostguaranteed way to bond with anybody born after 1980.

Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie, 1980. OK, now we’re getting into the heavy hitters. Cheech and Chong are Zeus-level gods of the pot-movie pantheon, but their often-emulated pothead personas aren’t the whole story. When you cut through the haze of smoke, cheap laughs, and brief nudity, you actually get some pretty great social commentary from Chong, who’s half Chinese, and Cheech, whose exaggerated Mexican accent is one of the most famous in history. Then again, you also get classic lines like, “Man, I’m gonna be late for work again. That’s the fifth time this week – and it’s only Tuesday, man!” Of the Cheech and Chong franchise, Next Movie stands out as the best — it’s a more refined iteration of Up In Smoke, but it avoids the repetition of the rest of the franchise. Plus the whole thing’s worth it for the “space coke” sequence alone.

2

The Big Lebowski, 1998. Where do you even begin with The Big Lebowski? It’s more than just a stoner movie, it’s a cult movement. Twenty years later, people are still showing up to their local Lebowskifests, dressed as Jeff Bridges’ iconic, sweater-clad antihero, The Dude. John Goodman gives arguably the best performance of his career as gun-toting Walter, chiding nihilists and chomping ears, and the Coen Brothers’ writing and direction turn a stoner detective story into high art (no pun intended), with twists and turns (a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-you’s) aplenty. Fortunately, The Dude adheres to a pretty strict drug regimen to keep the strands together.

1

Friday, 1995. There is no greater tale of friendship, bravery, romance, and weed, than 1995’s Friday. Okay, that may be a little bit hyperbolic, but only slightly. Chris Tucker’s performance as Smokey is iconic, the soundtrack is a golden mixtape of R&B and Rap, and Ice Cube’s transition from screw-up to hero heartens us all. But Friday isn’t just a movie about two stoners trying to come up with $200, it’s also a pretty honest day-inthe-life look at ’90s Los Angeles that arrived when most movies were depicting it as hell on earth. Friday proved it wasn’t all drive-bys and murders (though they make an appearance), and they did it with a movie so funny it holds up twenty years later.

Theory Strain

BY NURSE COURTNEY

STRAIN THEORY: noun (pl. theories) a supposition or a system of ideas intended

to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained: i.e., Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Healing the Body with Hydration and Water

WITH THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER upon us, I thought I would speak about the life-enhancing, mindfulness-based self-care practice of hydration and healing with the spirit of water. In my humble opinion, dehydration is the most frequently overlooked cause of headache, fatigue, depression, dejection, frustration, anxiety and pain— easy to believe when you consider the human body is more than 70% water. Basic cellular functions of energy production, neurotransmitter signaling, thermodynamic regulation, and cellular waste removal are all fueled by water. In fact, all transport and communication systems inside and outside of the cell function in an environment of water. Dehydration, at the most basic level of the cell, dampens the cell’s internal ability to receive and respond to vibrational signals, including cannabinoid signaling. Why? Because dehydration stiffens the cytoskeleton, effectively dampening reception of the intracellular vibrational signals responsible for activating chemical processes occurring inside and outside of the cell. Stiff cytoskeletons reduce the total overall vibrational frequency of each being, and our ability to “tune” into the good stuff in our life. Did you know that the foggy or “heavy headband” feeling that is notorious with high THC strains like Headband is actually related to the pronounced dehydrating properties of this particular strain? In my practice, I encourage everyone to think critically about effect. Does the reader have an understanding of what a “headband” effect feels like? Next time you enjoy your medicine, pay close attention to any presence of a headband, then drink water and ask “has the headband decreased?” A yes answer is a positive affirmation of dehydration. Take note if strains are dehydrating and if after drinking water, the effect is different, because adequate hydration can increase symptom relief by providing more hydraulic energy to cells. Knowing how the strain feels on multiple levels of awareness helps the reader to avoid disagreeable strains while focusing on feel-good strains. This is especially important with integration of

chemotherapy, as these drugs are already extremely dehydrating. And of course let’s not forget to drink enough water. Divide your body weight in half to roughly calculate ounces per day needed for hydration. 1500ml/day will provide for basic hydration and is my daily goal for intake. My practice is to fill a 1500 ml mason jar with reverse osmosis water, add a pinch of Himalayan sea salt salt to support my sodium potassium cellular pump, then I give it a good blessing. I imprint my water with love, healing and happiness for my well being for that particular day. As a matter of fact whenever I drink anything, I bless it with love and gratitude. Dr. Masuru Emoto demonstrated in his book “The Hidden Messages in Water” that water is powerful conductor and carrier of energy. Dr. Emoto’s work demonstrates how the spoken word can help or harm by conducting energy through water. So mind what you say to water inside and outside of the body, as what we say to ourselves or others could harm as well as heal. Next time you drink a glass of water, hold it to your heart, fill yourself with joy, gratitude, and love and send it into your water. You will drink in the vibration of love and joy, of health and healing and living your greatest good. Enjoy your summer and remember to stay hydrated for health, healing and well being. In the next issue of Strain Theory, I’m going to talk more about body effect, stay tuned! I’m Nurse Courtney and my specialty is the holistic integration of Cannabinoid Science into population-based public health care. My purpose here is a deeper look at the effect of strains on our own experience of life and how we can best use cannabis plant medicine for healing and wellbeing. This all comes from my years of work helping patients identify and describe effects to choose the best medicine to treat their particular condition. I invite you to join me in deeper conversation about effect with Strain Theory.


STRAINREPORT AVAILABLE AT FINE DISPENSARIES IN OREGON TO INCLUDE:

J1 “J1” – Also known as Jack One — is a hybrid strain whose high-energy effects categorize it more on the sativa end of the scale. J1 is a cross between two sativas, Skunk #1 and Jack Herer, and is best known for its strong, uplifting, clearheaded buzz that allows for mobility. The flowers are emerald green and frosty with a sweet aroma resembling the unmistakable Jack Herer pungency.

PINK 92 Some purple strains darken only at the tips of the flower; this deeply colored bud is composed of a marbled purple and sage pattern that continues down to the stem. The medium density buds are coated in a thick sand of pale trichomes with a forest of orange hairs. The strain’s odor is pungent, but not reminiscent of a typical cannabis scent. Instead, it has a heavy, slightly bitter, earthy overtone reminiscent of brewing kava, with hints of spice that come through in the taste during combustion.

LUNCH BOX ALCHEMY DOSAGE: 100mg EFFECTS: long lasting warm body high with euphoria AS TESTED: Medical AVAILABLE FOR MEDICAL / RECREATIONAL: Both

These new CBD gummies don’t taste like a regular edible … there is definitely a medical taste where you can tell the CBD is present. The candy now comes in a log so to speak with a dosing measure printed on the back of the package that we thought was really cool. There are 10 doses in each product making the CBD the highest that we have seen in Oregon with pretty much zero THC. They are derived from hemp, making this a safe product for children with medical conditions that require CBD. There are a variety of other flavors for those that like variety. We highly recommend trying them all.

Lunchbox Alchemy does it again! Their consistency in potency and effectiveness are just as good as good can get! The Macaroons are light and airy with a phenomenal taste. If you enjoy coconut macaroons you will love these as the ‘medical taste’ is almost nonexistent.

One word to describe this edible … AMAZING! A flavor-rich bite that you should eat sparingly and very little hint of cannabis flavor. If you think the name is a little odd … trust us on the taste! With 65% cacao and a hint of cranberry and nuts, this bar will tantalize your taste buds, and leave you very satisfied medically.
