Research

Research Generally

Ok. What is it? Basically, you ask a question common in many minds and discover the answer beyond doubt through research. If you wanted to know the frequency of the local bus transit route to determine if it keeps a regular clock work schedule down to the millisecond for one example, you would have to do research with perhaps some equipment to monitor all hours it operates in all weather, at the stop outside your window if it exists or another you can monitor 27/7/365 at bus times. I would say that over a year, you would get a pretty specific result. That answer became no, it has some flexibility at arrival times per stop. It often adjusts time along the way so they don’t arrive too early at stops found ahead between the transfer stations at a specific clock work schedule for departure. All times listed are departures from stops and stations. I forgot to mention this study also involved riding many individual runs from a transfer station back to the same transfer station and timing the stops and time at. There are also speed calculations etc, breakdowns, sudden trip emergencies, they cater to public transit where anything can and usually happen tragically so often. This is a type of Citizen Study someone like me would undertake. It could be anything. It could be you ‘Studying’. You could study your life condition from any angle you question, even as far as your medical life. It’s basically the same as studying your boss’s schedule or the bus. A question you have needed an answer. If you use a scientifically proven and creditable checkable and verifiable method of answering, you become a Citizen Scientist

My latest research, in case you didn’t guess it already…

Cannabis has been a lifelong study of misinformation sounding truths, and law-abiding Reefer Madness encouraged in many of the societies’ influences. Now more recently since about 2005 with Medical because of MS and Recreational since legalization, it kind of took new angles. I was growing up around it and a Reefer Madness infected father, towards the very end of the 1970s in a small Northen British Columbia Town. I had my first puff there, behind the pool room as an early teen. According to one thought I’ve had on it, that’s where my ‘Weeducation’ began. My ‘discussions’ with my father on the subject met animosity fast, so I became a rebel without a clue for a lot of years, discretion saved lots of arguments. Tobacco was OK past 16 though, dad allowed that after ignoring it since I was 5. I ended that ‘study’ at 39.

A sea of results

Cannabis is a diverse study. It has many results, no end. The biggest thing I discovered about Cannabis and its effects on my body was that we contain a very important system in our body called an Endocannabinoid System. It’s this system recently discovered in almost all animals that control so much in bodies from the spark of life to its end and cannabis affects it positively. Yea dad, smoking the Marijuana did way more than not kill me. It ended the tobacco addiction in my body that was killing me 39 years after, actually longer. You and mom smoked tobacco when I was born 56 years ago as I type all MS’ed up now enjoying life as best I can. More than a huff and puff puts smiles on my face, I am free of Tobacco. It caused the Multiple Sclerosis and mental health challenges; That I figure resulted from the Tobacco and Alcohol studies I did with negative results that ended before my 40s.

Public Recreational Medicinal Cannabis

Public sales.  What’s the difference?

Since public sales started selling in 2018 Canada this question has been asked by many regarding Medicinal and Recreational Cannabis.  Canadians above a certain age were suddenly allowed with various restrictions, no medical restriction or reason needed.  People as a collective play with pharmaceutical grade drugs, some facing addictions with deadly consequences for nations.  It does not only affect addicts.  Pharmaceuticals sometimes kill simply by using as directed.  Canada was overly cautious about Refer Madness infused Cannabis.  It has undergone many changes and laws since that day, thanks in part by being spearheaded by Canada’s former ‘RCMP Drug Task Force‘ heads.  They and their staff were also called the Gestapo by many Canadians puffing and growing the weed through prohibition.  The force is funded by that Refer Madness infection affecting society at large thanks to educating youth fears about Cannabis among other not so natural drugs now killing young adults today with programs like DARE, and adult programs like MADD which focused Cannabis above other drugs when driving.

Medical beginnings to legalization and sales

Prior to 2018 medicinal allowances were considered confusingly legal for very few since the mid 1970’s at least, and had exploded to many patients by 2009 for many people with diverse life and medical experiences in Canada.  Strata’s and other multi family dwellings tried to ban Cannabis consumption inside and were successful by society restrictions banning Cannabis above any smoking laws in public or rented areas inside prior to legalization.  In years before legalization many patents had to provide the Doctor’s actual prescription for proof of need.  Civic properties outside like parks and courtyards post legalization imposed complete smoking bans, prior to legalization had the law backing them with draconian actions when enforced and allowed tobacco only.  It is a true medicine not restricted by any law when prescribed by forward thinking medical professionals above that all use is somehow medicinal in more than my thoughts.  For a short time after legalisation and long before that, a patient could authorize a grower to supply their daily amount locally.  Some patients could even grow their own according to their daily limit.  Since then, the patients have to go through a registered Licenced Producer or their personal LP became that foundation for the only legal way to obtain Medical Cannabis.  That same product filled the shelves for recreational public sales after 2018, from those LP’s.  More on that next para.  I saw that patient medicine was reduced from the federal supply, well at first.  There is a form on Health Canada’s website  which is the official medical document authorizing the use of cannabis for medical purposes.  It’s recognized Canada wide and another form is needed to authorize growing, it may only be submitted once the property is properly prepared with security through environmental design in mind focused on refer madness thoughts of high profile crime attractants.  Long term patients still have designated growers locked in thanks to an Injunction made by Cannabis Lawyer John Conroy before 2010.  The growers became federal Licenced Producers if they qualified.

One source for all legal Cannabis, Medical and Recreational

With Legalization, you are allowed to grow 4 Cannabis plants per household but they must not be visible to anyone public, particularly those under the legal age of the province.  Canada has a set of laws, provinces handle Cannabis laws provincially and local communities have their own regulations concerning sales and use.  Legalization became Prohibition 2.0.  Some Strata’s, other multi family dwellings and individual rented living spaces can outright ban growing even one plant, even as a regular attractive house plant. Only plants that grow is grown from ‘starter material’ (IE seeds and clones) must be from a licenced producer who’s starter material was from the same national stockpile of starter material.   I do think it’s the final version of that medical form, imho strictly used for research purposes with controlled subjects from a controlled supply.  There is a larger ‘weeducation’ research project using public with recreational Cannabis in the wild to which the conclusion may be proven ‘all use is medicinal‘.  Efforts to research it’s effects on the Opium epidemic in East Vancouver were halted by said Gestapo aka Community Safety Unit or other branch’s in the 2 police forces (City Police and RCMP) of Vancouver.

Prior to legalisation and public sales, this sight brought fear into the hearts of recreational tokers of all ages

 

Beyond Recreational and Medicinal

In previous posts, I covered some of the industrial benefits.  Housing, food, vehicles, fuel, replacing our demand on forests.  That’s just a start, way more products can be made.  The food and shelter forms of it will increase health, recreational may just provide a defence against the need to use it medicinally.  With society health, we can be more productive in many areas beyond the Cannabis field.

Where do we grow all this Cannabis?  Part ‘B’

Uses

Fuel

We suspect that Cannabis could reduce our dependence on “Big Oil“, with just one use.  Some call it a wasteful use, as there is information out there that claims a ton of dry biomass is burned to produce about 80 US Gallons of Gasoline type fuel and a pile of charcoal is produced referring to Cannabis Fuel.  The charcoal in that purpose is 100% useful as fertilizing material for new plants, it could also be used in heating to replace coal use, being very similar but being wasteful not worth thinking about. Same as for capacitor use where Carbon Graphite (from the remains of burned Cannabis fiber) rods make the components of that device.   However that is not how Hemp biofuel is made, that thinking is archaic and reminiscent of a Refer Madness infection.  Any vegetation could be our Biomass, but in this example our Biomass is Cannabis dba Hemp.  The pluses outweigh the negatives as far as I can see, just the seeds are used with the oils squeezed out.  This produces a ‘cold pressed seed cake’.  This Seed Cake is completely editable, it’s sold as domestic animal feed but it is edible for us as well.  The fuel itself is non toxic and can be consumed but is said to be unpleasant in taste, an alcohol stronger and less toxic than rubbing alcohol.  A spill would be good for the environment, fertilizing soils, leading to the next part where Cannabis will help.

The Forest Industry

It could replace the need to rape the forests industrially as another use.  Today, industry replants pure stands of Pine and Spruce trees after clearcutting, creating firestorms that grow humongous and some endanger communitiesDeciduous trees and shrubs are eradicated with prejudiced practices done by industry that threaten natural forests.  Feral animals are nature’s tools, the shrubs are berries and other seed bearing plants planted by nature in the circle of life.  Nature is out of balance.  Any non conifer plant growing near a ‘treated pure stand’ is growing in pesticide residue, usually deformed and is toxic to life.  It struggles to exist in a pure stand.  We do need big industry to step out of the forests for at least one generation of humans.  But…  We use forests for recreation, we use forests for employmentWe use the resources the forest produces in construction, paper products,school projects, hygiene (toothpicks) and way more even in some very wasteful ways, like toilet paper. With Cannabis:  Hempcrete, Hemp Lumber, Hemp Paper, Hemp Toilet Paper, napkins and more paper products, no toxic chemicals needed.  Everything wood can be replaced by a Hemp product in fact, all that can be safely tossed when its useful life ends.  It returns to the soil a lot faster than wood, most won’t have been preserved in toxic chemicals.  Every product employs an army in a sustainable workforce from seed to consumer.  There is much more it can do, I could describe Plastic and Food, The problems about Batteries and a Capacitor which is all it can be at present, but I won’t on this post.  I hope it inspired you to do some research and expand your ‘Weeducation‘, it isn’t always learned on the first puff.  The Industrial end of things is a whole other class in the school of Weeducation  Thank you for following so far, Hope you’ve been paying attention.  Keep reading for Cannabis Potential part 3-c, it needs not cut into agricultural land, well fertil soils overall excluding ferial…  Subscribe if you haven’t yet.  Next week that post will be uploaded

Cannabis Potential part 3 A

Where do we grow all this Cannabis?  Part ‘A’

If you need to start at the first post in this series, that is here.  This is part A of Where to Grow, Explaining “Feral Cannabis” which is beyond first generation growth and appears to be ‘naturally seeded’ by animal and bird droppings. Usually when I start a conversation about Cannabis and promoting my vast awareness of the plant with my limited understanding someone askes about land needed.  Most of my early knowledge I learned listening to the stories of weeducated individuals in all sorts of worlds during the last of the illegal years from about 1977 in a Northern British Columbia small town, then researching truths online after 2005.  The community I grew up in was rumored to have supplied the Cannabis to Prince George and points east west north and south of the hub city during many of the Prohibition years ending in 2018 in Canada.  In return, before the hype of today with the opiate problem, Cannabis was often traded for Cocaine and Heroin and the community was said to be layered a foot thick with those drugs.  It has grown up since then but that I feel it created the problems today, entirely created by an insane law that lumped Cannabis worse than those 2 drugs.  But that’s so far from the question I added it to show background as I listened to many stories that were proven as fact as I became as weeducated with no growing experiences.  I’ll break this in 2 parts so you see my reasoning of where to grow and how it adds, not takes away from, exising Biomass by filling a niche in agriculture today.

Cannabis in the wild

Early settlers to North America first settled here because the land was prime to grow Cannabis for the homeland and their own needs as they settled.  Land was hard to secure and grow Cannabis in the ‘Homeland’ due to conflicts changing borders and taking prime farmland during times of conquest.  In the decades before the ‘European invasion‘ created the United States which used Cannabis in part to break free from Europe and become independent, the plant was used diversely and for the most part, needed very little human intervention allowing settlers to shape the country.   Cannabis’s end product of Hemp was needed for war efforts at home and supplied material like rope and sails needed to explore, food and materials for settlements among all the other resources the new land offered.  Most of that early Cannabis escaped the plantations which were often abandoned and forgotten as generations progressed.  Speed further to 1899 to well after 2000 in North America, law enforcers took care of ‘ditch’ or wild Cannabis with prejudice where and when they noticed it.

It still grows all the globe including North America. Unseen in a ditch, spread free and proud perhaps on a remote mountainside or sheltered in an unseen valley it grows.  Studies show the Feral Cannabis to be very low quality and could be industrial class for at least the seeds, much more with awareness.  Seed eating small animals sitting around the bottom of the food chain and birds love Cannabis seed in their diet.  So do larger creatures who eat seed and those also eat those creatures.  Cannabis Seed survives the digestive track and is deposited in a smelly pile of nutritious fresh fertiliser, even when going through the predator as a second digestive track.  They found the plant most often in areas of disturbed and compacted soils like ditches and industrial lands abandoned, perhaps deposited by a rodent or bird chasing a rodent, perhaps by both while and after consumption of the smaller prey.  Where Feral Cannabis grew, it tolerated other species native to the environment and appeared to improve the soil and enhance surrounding biodiversity.  Refer Madness calls it invasive.  In the wild it exists peacefully coexisting naturally globally, flourishing strong without any human intervention.  Including in North America where Refer Madness laws calls it a ‘Noxious Weed’, but not officially as the Google keyword used on Google brought up all sorts of government websites and info suggesting toxic and noxious weed info links, but no mention of Ferial or wild Cannabis, Hemp at their websites on the subject.  Stay tuned for part ‘B’ in about an hour!
