  1. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/may/30/cannabis-oil-restaurant-shut-down-despite-police-go-ahead A south-coast vegetarian restaurant has become the first UK food business to be shut down for infusing its dishes with CBD cannabis oil despite its owners saying they were assured less than a year ago by police and trading standards that the products were legal. The Canna Kitchen, in Brighton, has been closed since a police raid at the start of May. The owners, whose slogan is “let food be thy medicine”, face losing hundreds of thousands of pounds and laying off 15 staff. Drug reform campaigners have described Sussex police’s action as “heavy-handed”. Sam Evolution, Canna’s director, said he had evidence that the police and the UK Trading Standards Agency had given him the go-ahead to open a restaurant that sold food infused with CBD oil last July. Speaking for the first time about the raid on 11 May, Evolution said he and his staff went out of their way to inform the police about what they were selling. “On 1 July 2018 we contacted the Met police via email in an attempt to verify the official UK legal position on the sale of CBD hemp flower. Their response [in the email] was, ‘As long as you have made reasonable inquiries and it has been said that they are legal, then there is no criminal offence.’ We made this inquiry to ensure that we were always operating well within the law. “We also made a separate inquiry to trading standards, who told us that as far as they could tell, there are no current legal issues posted by the sale of hemp-derived CBD products. It is clear CBD is not a controlled substance. It is freely available from many large high-street chains.” Separately in March, a police officer from the Sussex constabulary visited the Canna Kitchen and, according to Evolution, told them “he did not want to interrupt our business”. The officer was given samples of the CBD products, including items of food to take back to police headquarters for testing, Evolution said. “The products taken included legal [lab-verified] full spectrum organic CBD oils, capsules, pastes, balms and beauty products. As well, there were CBD teas and coffees, chocolates, cakes, pet treats, hemp seeds and hemp flower,” he said. Two months later up to a dozen officers carried out searches at the restaurant, ejected customers and forced staff to remain in one room for four and a half hours, Evolution said. “I was stunned to learn this in light of our prior full and open cooperation with the police … it felt completely over the top.” He said nothing on sale in the restaurant or in a dispensary shop above it involved illicit substances. Evolution added his business ethos was “wholesome, ethical, forward thinking and clean”. “We have always taken very stringent measures to ensure that we comply with the letter of the law.” Evolution stressed that Canna operated under Home Office guidelines, which stated that any CBD production containing less 0.2% of THC –tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical responsible for marijuana’s psychological effects is legally permissible. A Sussex police spokesperson said the 11 May raid was part of an investigation into “money laundering and the supply of class B drugs” in Brighton. They added: “At the shop in Duke Street a significant quantity of herbal cannabis was seized.” Evolution said the inquiry into money laundering had nothing to do with his business and was connected to a raid on other premises in Brighton. On the seizure of herbal cannabis, Evolution said: “It was industrial hemp that was seized from our Duke Street premises, which is imported legally with all taxes and duties paid. We have no connection to any other shop or residence raided in the police operation.” Transform, which campaigns to reform drug policy, said The Canna Kitchen had been the victim of a heavy-handed police response compounded by confusion over the legality of the cannabis products it was selling. “This is something that could have been dealt with as a civil licensing issue, rather than a criminal case,” said Danny Kuslick, the head of Transform’s external affairs. “It may also demonstrate some significant confusion on all sides regarding the legality of the sale of hemp products for consumption, CBD and provision of medical cannabis. This is a situation that requires urgent clarification and guidance to reduce police involvement to a minimum.” The Home Office said it could not comment on the raid as “operational policing decisions are a matter for chief constables”. Evolution said he and his family stood to lose £250,000 of an initial investment in what they maintained was a health food business, as well as investors who were ready to buy into an expansion of the Canna Kitchen concept. “I have a seven-month-old baby and a wife on maternity leave, so financially this has not been a great time to close my business. We fully cooperated with the authorities and even asked for advice from them in case there was anything we should remove from our store. The only conclusion I can come to is that I feel we have been targeted by the police as a test case.”

  3. Ongoing Dinafem Specific Diary - Going to be growing the new CBD Autos from Dinafem with a Remo Chemo that is currently mid veg. Thanks to @Dinafem-Markfor the opportunity. Never grown or tasted anything CBD related so pretty chuffed to sample the what CBD can do, hoping for some anti anxiety meds and help with Glaucoma.
  4. with my loft tent set up and ready to grow its about time I started my first diary Around the 1st May i dropped my Dinafem Critical Mass CBD seed into water and popped it into a mini heated propagator. 24h later and it'd cracked and the tap root was starting to emerge so i placed it carefully into a rootit sponge and placed the lot into my temporary veg cabinet. she had some difficulties throwing her shell off so after a day or two i eased it off and left her to get on with things - unfortunately i hadn't noticed that a bit of shell pith was still clinging on and this prevented the cotyledons from properly opening for another day or two before i worked up the courage to cut them free with a razor blade now 5 days from germination shes starting to spread her wings a bit - shes not coming on as quick as I'd have liked but i suspect i may have left her in the closed heated prop for a little too long, plus the closed cupboard with no ventilation is hardly a perfect environment - will definitely have to have to work out something better for next time plan is to let her settle into the rootit sponge, then once she's happy move her into a 4" rockwool cube and hand water for a bit before dropping her in the NFT tray... super excited (and a little nervous) to finally have my first grow on the go - looking forward to some home grown weed in T minus 12-16 weeks and counting

  6. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/golf/2019/05/01/tee-green-pro-golfers-using-marijuana-cbd-derivatives-should/ The rumours are rife, the whispers are becoming louder, the CBD is out the bag. Golf could be on the brink of a "drugs" controversy and the pathetic fact is it will prove to be nothing of the sort. Merely a storm in the clubhouse's teapot. Actually, "pot" is the appropriate word in this case as the hysteria is suggesting that some of the elite players - including at last month's Masters - are ingesting compounds of marijuana to soothe their nerves. Think of mellow golfers walking up the 18th, calmly keeping their heads when all about them are lifting theirs, and humming "don't worry about a thing" as they amble to the title, and you just about have the picture.
  7. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-04-cbd-impairment-cannabis.html The more cannabidiol (CBD) in a strain of cannabis, the lower the impairment to brain function, finds a new UCL-led brain imaging study. The research, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, is the first study using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to gauge how different strains of cannabis impact brain function. "Over the last two decades, rates of addiction and psychosis linked to cannabis have been on the rise, while at the same time stronger strains of cannabis with more THC and less CBD have become increasingly common," said the study's lead author, Dr. Matt Wall (UCL Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit and Invicro). "We have now found that CBD appears to buffer the user against some of the acute effects of THC on the brain." There is growing evidence that THC is implicated in addiction and cannabis-induced psychosis. CBD, on the other hand, is being researched for a range of therapeutic functions, but the interplay between THC and CBD is not yet well-known. In the present study, the researchers monitored brain activity at rest in 17 people after taking different strains of cannabis. The two strains have equal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but one of them also has high levels of CBD while the other strain, a high-strength cannabis commonly known as skunk, contained negligible levels of CBD. Both strains are comparable to the different strains of cannabis in common usage. The researchers found that the low-CBD strain impaired functional connectivity in the brain's default mode (particularly in the posterior cingulate area) and salience networks, while the high-CBD strain caused only a minimal disruption to the these regions, suggesting that the CBD counteracts some of THC's harmful effects. The salience network supports other brain networks and determines what sensory or emotional inputs we pay attention to, and disruptions of the network have previously been implicated in addiction and psychosis. The researchers also found that the THC-induced disruption of functional connectivity in the posterior cingulate was strongly correlated with participants' reports of subjective experiences, such as feeling more 'stoned' or 'high', suggesting that the brain area may be central to driving cannabis' subjective effects. This relationship between the posterior cingulate and subjective effects was also blocked by CBD. The researchers say their findings add to evidence that cannabis strains with greater CBD content may be less harmful, suggesting that CBD content of cannabis should perhaps be regulated in jurisdictions where it's legal. "As cannabis is becoming legal in more parts of the world, people buying cannabis should be able to make an informed decision about their choice of cannabis strain and be aware of the relative risks," said Dr. Wall. The findings also provide insight into why CBD holds potential for medicinal uses. "If CBD can restore disruption to the salience network, this could be a neuroprotective mechanism to explain its potential to treat disorders of salience such as psychosis and addiction," added senior author Professor Val Curran (UCL Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit).

  9. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/high-street-swansea-shop-selling-16095183 The Brain Box Shop - situated in High Street - opened in August last year after selling cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp-based products online for several months. South Wales Police said the visit to the shop was part of "Operation Hazardia" which, as well as targeting outstanding suspects, aimed to work with a range of colleagues and partners to detect and prevent further crime. One of the store owners, Karol Cegla, said police and trading standards visited the store last Friday afternoon, adding that he felt they were expecting to find cannabis was being sold from the shop. He said he wasn't sure if it was a full raid as police didn't take everything, just samples, adding that they were now waiting for the test results to come back. Mr Cegla said trading standards told them they needed to do an inspection of the products they were selling and needed samples of their products such as the hemp flowers or teas. Karol Cegla. A CBD and hemp shop "The Brain Box Shop" has opened in Swansea's High Street and they sell all sorts (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Some of the products available at the Brain Box Shop on Swansea's High Street (Image: South Wales Evening Post) "At the same time, police were going through everything in the shop," he continued. "At the moment we are waiting to hear back from them. "Both of them took samples as police wanted to know about the THC levels in the products." Hemp is a cannabis plant with trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the psychoactive substance in cannabis - and higher concentrations of CBD. Among the products they sell, it is the whole plant extract - in oil, raw or capsules - which they sell as a food supplement. They are not claiming any medical benefits, but say some customers are using them for therapeutic reasons such as to treat anxiety or depression. They sell edibles, tea and hemp flowers as well, which are some of their most popular products. At the moment, they sell several strains of hemp flowers - such as Strawberry Bubble (13.9% CBD), White Widow (15.3% CBD) or Spanish Sensi (6.9% CBD). Other products sold in the store include skin balms with hemp oil and lavender, which can be used for skin conditions or joint pain. Don, also of The Brain Box Shop, has previously said they called themselves a "CBD dispensary" and that, rather than specialising in one product, they were looking at all the possibilities the plant offered, selling all sorts of things. They sell tea and hemp flowers as well, which are some of their most popular products (Image: South Wales Evening Post) (Image: South Wales Evening Post) He claimed their flowers were first tested in Europe and then put through a further test in the UK to make sure the THC was not present. "We have worked as closely as possible with the police and we have been visited two or three times over the past year by them," he continued. "We were very surprised that they turned up - we are hoping to create a transparent relationship with them. "We believe being able to sell the full range of CBD products has benefited the area and our customers. "We feel we are being penalised wrongly and are now thinking of whether we should leave the High Street altogether. "We are working with the emerging market which clearly shows cannabinoids work but we live in fear constantly." (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Hemp tea on sale at the Brain Box Shop in Swansea (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Mr Cegla said they did not know when they would see anyone come back with the results, but trading standards had said it could be about two weeks. "They will let me know if we need to change anything about the labelling," he continued. "As far as I know, all my products are legal and I do not know what they will try to do. "This is a new industry and it isn't fully regulated so you never know what is going to happen next week - they could say that, from next month, it could only be bought on prescription, for example." A spokeswoman for South Wales Police confirmed a joint visit with Trading Standards was carried out at a premises in High Street, where a number of items were seized for further analysis. A spokesman for Swansea Council said: "Council Trading Standards officers recently supported local police during a routine visit to a business in the city centre. "This matter is ongoing."

  11. I’ve just started my training of my plants and I see people cut the bottom 1/3 of the plant away as light doesn’t get there. Im not at that stage yet but was wondering when I was would it be worth trying to get the cbd out of those leaves? The plants are now 5 weeks old i use morphine daily to get to work for back issues and I’m sick of using it. I’m 33, and the last 13 years have been lost to opiates. I don’t smoke at all so the plants are for oil only not to smoke. Was wondering would I be able to get some oil a bit earlier from the cuttings rather than waiting till the plants are fully done??

  17. Hi guys, I've been talking to a friend who uses cbd for joint pains, but is paying quite a bit for it - so I thought why not just grow some and give her a stack for free I plan to grow a plant, maybe chop the whole lot up and infuse into coconut oil before placing the oil into capsules for easy dosing. So I have two questions: 1st, primarily which strains do I have to select from? Ideally something indica so it won't take over my whole tent. Needs to be for someone who doesn't get high, so must comply with the legal amount of thc allowed - is this <.5%? 2nd is my thought of doing a coconut oil infusion going to be the best / easiest way to get what I want? Open to any suggestions here, so long as it doesn't involve any additional process - iso is out of the question as I don't have facilities to do a purge. I was going to pop this in a pm to @Dinafem-Mark, but I doubt I'll be the only one to ask this, so having it here for record may prove useful to others in the future. Cheers
  18. We recently announced the next CBD Spring promotion, in which we announced 3 new genetics coming. Here the first, Pink Kush being now availlable. Enjoy!! Pink Kush CBD Auto is the result of crossing Kush Rose CBD Auto with Afghan Rose CBD Auto strains. It is 90% indica, has a fast life-cycle and a CBD:THC ratio of at least 30:1. As an auto-flowering strain it will be suitable for just about all environments. Taking a scant 9 weeks from germination through to harvest yields are said to be good although we do not as yet have any exact figures. Outdoor growers in warm clinmates will be able to achieve 2 or even 3 harvests per year. It displays an attractive pink colour in the buds. The scent and taste resembles pine and damp forest with earthy hints of red fruits. CBD is rated at approximately 17% with just 0.5% THC. Its effect is a soft, light, relaxing body high. SEEDS & TEST LAB AVAILLABLES Cookies Chill CBD 2:1 is a high-CBD poly-hybrid strain. The mother is a cross of pure Girl Scout Cookies and LA Confidential while its father is a Totem CBD. It is a high-yielding medicinal strain with a CBD:THC ratio of 2:1. For indoor growers the recommended time for its vegetative growth phase is between 15 - 25 days. Flowering takes 70 - 75 days with the optimum temperature range for growth being between 22°C - 26°:C. It has been tested and found to survive down to 8°C and at levels as high as 38°C. These plants have a robust structure with many closely-spaced inter-nodes or bud sites. Its strong stems are thick and the buds are very dense and hard. Leaves are broad and large too. Typical yields are between 400 - 500 gr/m2 indoors or as much as 1000 gr/plant indoors. Recommended pH levels are as follows: Soil: pH range 5.5 - 6.8; EC 1.0 - 1.8ms. Hydro: pH range: 5.5 - 6.5; EC 1.2 - 2.0ms This strain has scents and flavours of lemon, earth, Kush and fruits. THC levels fall in the range 7% - 9% while CBD is rather higher at 15% - 17% giving a CBD:THC ratio of 2:1. Doctor Seedsman CBD is the crowning achievement resulting from a long and diligent effort seeking to discover a strain of cannabis with very high levels of CBD but with less than 1% THC resulting in healing effects without any psychoactivity. Many CBD-rich strains have been bred now have been but up until now the vast majority have virtually equal amounts of CBD and THC. Dr. Seedsman CBD is 80% sativa and is descended from a plant that its breeders named CBD Asia due to its provenance and high CBD levels. This amazing plant didn't even need the usual inbreeding in order to both emphasise and stabilise its desirable traits. It is a robust plant growing vigorously yet staying quite short and squat in the process. Indoor flowering lasts for 8 - 9 weeks while outdoor harvests should be ready in early October in northern latitudes. Yields are high and the buds nice and dense and covered with loads of resin. This plant is very aromatic but non-psychoactive. CBD production has been laboratory tested at 20% while THC comes in at less than 1%. This represents a CBD:THC ratio in excess of approximately 30:1. The effect is very deeply relaxing to the body with no cerebral effects whatsoever.
  19. Hi folks, Daily mail at it again The comments give hope though Cannabis oil sold as a health product in Britain can get users 'high', study finds Researchers found driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful' The products have soared in popularity amid claims they help combat ailments The legal version of cannabis sold as a health product in the UK can get users ‘high’ and even make it dangerous to drive, a study has found. Cannabis oils and capsules said to help reduce anxiety and pain are on sale in high street stores including Holland & Barrett and are used by more than 250,000 Britons. They are sold legally because they contain no more than 0.2 per cent of the mind-altering substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is found in the illegal version of the drug. But now scientists have found that the active ingredient in these products, cannabidiol (CBD), is also psychoactive. In the study, subjects used a vape to inhale different strains of cannabis. Those using the version containing CBD but not illegal THC reported levels of intoxication three times that of those who used only a placebo. In addition, experts said subjects felt detached from reality. Scientists from Wollongong University in Australia concluded that driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful’. The finding comes amid calls for the form of cannabis containing THC to also be legalised for medicinal and recreational purposes. Last night, Tory MP Craig Mackinlay, chairman of an All- Party Parliamentary Group investigating the effects of cannabis on the brain, said: ‘This is a startling revelation. For many years we have been told that THC was the key cause of cognitive issues stemming from cannabis, and that CBD held the “holy grail” of benefits. ‘These studies show that it is far more complex than simply isolating a few inherent compounds. Cannabis in its raw form contains more than 400 chemicals, so how long will it be until the next cure-all is miraculously discovered by pro-legalisers, only to be put down by science once again? ‘It is high time for there to be a full scientific investigation into the harmful effects of cannabis and its chemical compounds to put this misinformation to rest once and for all.’ Almost £6 million of CBD health supplements were sold last year. The products cost up to £60 and have soared in popularity amid claims that they help combat anxiety, insomnia and muscle and joint pain. There is also an emerging market of recreational CBD cannabis. Globally, CBD cannabis is expected to be worth almost £2 billion by next year, with dozens of companies poised to invest in the burgeoning industry. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6712725/amp/Legal-cannabis-oil-sold-British-health-shops-users-high-study-shows.html

  22. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/key-marijuana-chemical-called-cbd-can-no-longer-be-added-n968566 A key chemical in marijuana could spark trouble for a Brooklyn java joint owner who claims to be the first in New York City to have infused coffee drinks with the compound, cannabidiol, or CBD. Ian Ford, proprietor of Caffeine Underground in the Bushwick section, said business boomed when he started selling CBD Coffee and Trippin’ Tea. But now that the New York City’s health department has started cracking down on bars and eateries that sell food or drinks containing CBD, he expects to hear a health inspector to knock on his door. “We were the first ones in New York State to offer drinks with CBD and it became a big deal for us,” Ford told NBC News on Wednesday. “Now I don’t know what’s going to happen.” Ford said he’s aware of other establishments that sell such fare that have been told to cease and desist by the city. A CBD coffee prepared by Caffeine Underground.Ian Ford / Caffeine Underground “They know we sell this, but they’re not talking to us until they show up, apparently,” he said. “All of this is very confusing. It’s legal to buy it and stick it on your tongue, but it’s not legal to buy it and stick it in your coffee? It’s like there’s no rules and too many rules. “ The city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed in a statement that it was ordering restaurants and other establishments not to sell food or drink that contains CBD because it has not been deemed safe to consume. “Restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink that is not approved as safe to eat,” the statement read. “The Health Department takes seriously its responsibility to protect New Yorkers’ health. Until cannabidiol (CBD) is deemed safe as a food additive, the Department is ordering restaurants not to offer products containing CBD.” The Health Department supplied NBC News with a list of 11 restaurants — all but two of them in Manhattan — that have been “ordered not to use CBD as a food additive in products.” News of the crackdown was broken by the Eater blog, which mentioned that The Wild Son restaurant and cocktail bar in Manhattan’s trendy meatpacking district was serving cocktails with a dash of CBD. Paul Downie, who runs the establishment, said that for a time they did serve such concoctions. “It wasn’t a marquee thing for us, it was just something that came up because some of our people use CBD oil and we started offering it to see if it would take off,” he said. “It didn’t take off.” Downie said they haven’t heard from city health officials. “In any case, we’ve pulled it,” he said of the CBD-infused cocktails. “We don’t offer it anymore. “ New York City is not the only jurisdiction lowering the boom on CBD. The New York Times reported that states like Maine and Ohio are also barring the sale of food products containing the chemical. Unlike THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol and is the main component in marijuana, CBD doesn't get people high. Caffeine Underground, a coffee shop in Brooklyn, hosts an event with the Psychedelic Meetup Society in 2018.Courtesy of Ian Ford But it’s been touted by celebrities like Mandy Moore and Willie Nelson as a remedy for anxiety, insomnia, pain and a host of other ailments, although there’s little solid research on its effects on humans. Despite that, CBD increasingly showing up in supposed health products like skin creams and other topical oils. Besides the question of whether it is safe, another problem with CBD is that its legality is still, in some ways, TBD. The federal Food and Drug Administration last June approved the first-ever CBD drug to treat epilepsy. But the FDA, on its website, also says CBD cannot be sold as a dietary supplement or in food that crosses state lines. Meanwhile, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration still regards cannabis as banned schedule 1 drug and therefore illegal, despite the fact that marijuana is fully legal in states like California and Massachusetts. In New York State, marijuana for medical use is allowed. A recent investigation by NBC Miami found that certain manufacturers appear to be trying to cash in on the CBD craze — and the lack of regulation — by pushing products that are said to contain CBD but in fact don’t. “Patients are being duped,” said Chris Martinez, president of Evio Labs, which analyzed 35 CBD products and found that 20 contained less than half the amount of CBD advertised and some contained none. Back at Caffeine Underground in Brooklyn, the proprietor, Ford, said, “It’s not just drinks” he makes that contain CBD. He said he also has products with CBD from out of state. Ford said he has called the city health Department, but so far, “I’m not getting any answers.”
  23. Hi, I am from the UK living in the UK and looking to grow my own industrial hemp for personal pain use I suffer from PTSD...etc and other physical and painful health issues. I do not get on with THC and have tried CBD isolate which was ok , but found the full spectrum CBD oils better but at just crazy non affordable prices, I'm on a war widows pension and just looking for some non sterilized seeds that I can grow for my own use making my own oil. No feminized seeds, no THC or the 0.02% that is unavoidable but not illegal, no cannabis , just hemp.... and less pain physically and mentally. Thank you and thank you for having me here x ZB
  24. Heya Guys, I've been away for a while as my Mrs has been very sick indeed. She is in chronic pain and it is breaking my heart more and more each day. Unfortunately we are no way near a diagnosisis yet but I want to start treating at home with CBD oils and Edibles. I've had a quick look through the seedbanks and always have a preference towards Dinafem. But can anyone recommend a strain that is suitable for CDB extraction?
