  1. A giant Canadian cannabis producer has agreed its maiden foray into the British market by buying a vast Lincolnshire greenhouse in a deal worth tens of millions of pounds. Sky News has learnt that Spalding-based Bridge Farm Group will announce on Friday that it is being bought by Sundial Growers, a leader in the burgeoning provision of cannabis for health and medicinal usage. Sources said that the deal would be among the largest cannabis-related corporate transactions involving a UK-based company. Sundial plans to use the Lincolnshire site to grow hemp for the production of CBD, which is now being widely used by consumer brand manufacturers for its restorative properties. Molson-Coors and Heineken, the brewers, have announced plans to sell cannabis-infused drinks, with Coca-Cola among those to have said they were monitoring the market. Bridge Farm is due to be expanded from its current size to roughly 3.8m square feet in the coming years, making it one of the largest fully automated such growing structures in Europe. Sundial's acquisition of Bridge Farm underlines the extent to which traditional plant and flower-growers are utilising the explosion of CBD usage to diversify their businesses. CBD is hemp extract already commonly sold as a supplement in wellness products in a number of UK mainstream retailers. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the UK regulator for medicines and medicinal products, has authorised the use of CBD, although it continues to face some resistance in Britain and elsewhere. Sundial is understood to have identified Bridge Farm as an attractive takeover target several months ago. The deal will entail an exit for NorthEdge Capital, which bought a stake in Bridge Farm just under two years ago. A spokeswoman for Bridge Farm declined to comment on Thursday.

  3. Like nearly everyone on here i have campaigned for the legalisation of cannabis for years, i helped do a smokey bears picnic in norwich about three years ago and have sent my local mp/pm home office and anyone else that might listen many emails, twitter posts about cannabis, today i got another response from my local mp the same old story here is the response.... There is strong scientific evidence that cannabis is a drug which can harm people's mental and physical health, and damage communities. However recent cases have shown the need to look more closely at the use of cannabis-based medicine in the healthcare sector in the UK. This is why the Government decided it was appropriate to review the scheduling of cannabis. The decision of the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to reschedule these products is welcome. This decision means that senior clinicians will be able to prescribe the medicines to patients with an exceptional clinical need. Following short term advice issued in September 2018 the ACMD are to review the current rescheduling and its appropriateness by November 2020 and provide further initial advice on synthetic cannabinoids by summer 2020. It is crucial that this country keeps in step with the latest scientific evidence, so that patients and their families have access to the most appropriate course of medical treatment. My Ministerial colleagues have also been clear that given the nature of the medicine, it should only be prescribed be specialist doctors and on a case-by-case basis. I believe these strict controls are necessary to develop clinical expertise and an evidence base for this treatment effectiveness. The decision whether to prescribe an individual with medicinal cannabis is therefore not a political or financial decision, but a decision by a medical expert, who will have considered whether it is the most effective treatment based on an individual's particular condition. I will continue to closely monitor the roll-out of medicinal cannabis and I will certainly look at the report you mention. Thank you again for contacting me.
  4. So how did you guys get into growing in the great outdoors? What made you come up with the idea? Why did you start? Did you make any vital mistakes? What strain? How many plants? What was your yield? What year did you start? Just curious Provocateur.
  5. Cannabis has been used as a medicine for millennia, writes David Nutt, who charts its relatively recent prohibition, the effect on patients such as Billy Caldwell, and the failure of legal reform to make much difference Cannabis is arguably the world’s oldest medicine, with evidence of such use from 3000 year old tombs in Egypt and Siberia. It had a place in Indian and Chinese medical writing from nearly as long ago. It didn’t enter the UK until the late 1600s, but by the 1800s it was widely used, sold over the counter as an alcoholic tincture for problems such as tetanus and seizures. Its efficacy more broadly became apparent, and the definitive overview was published in the Lancet in 1890 by John Russell Reynolds.1 Because he was the Queen’s physician it is believed that Queen Victoria used cannabis medicines, particularly for period and childbirth pains. The demise of cannabis as a medicine began rather surprisingly when in 1933 the US Senate voted to rescind the law on alcohol prohibition. This left the threat that 35 000 officers of alcohol prohibition enforcement (now the Drug Enforcement Administration) would lose their jobs, along with their director, Harry Anslinger.2 So Anslinger created a new drug scare in alcohol’s place: cannabis. He used its Mexican name, marijuana, to associate its use with unofficial immigrants. Then, working with the less scrupulous media, he created scare stories about the damage wrought by cannabis: that its use would destroy Americans’ lives and result in white women being raped by drug crazed foreigners, and so on. Though fanciful and dishonest, these stories created the intended public moral panic. Public enemy number one Cannabis became public enemy number one among drug threats, and the DEA was saved.2 To further vilify cannabis, and to prevent its cultivation for medical use, cannabis was removed from the US pharmacopoeia in 1934. The rest of the world was encouraged to support the ban: in its 1934 report the League of Nations’ health committee agreed with the US that cannabis medicines had no value. This report was relied on to control cannabis under the 1961 United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and amazingly persisted as the international medical guidance on cannabis until 2018, being used as the justification by the World Health Organization for keeping cannabis a schedule 1 controlled drug till then. Even more absurdly, the 1934 report has been lost, so we can’t explore its evidential base or reasoning.3 At first the UK held out against this outrageous denial of the value of medical cannabis, just as it did when the US similarly attempted to eliminate heroin as a medical treatment. Cannabis continued being used as a medicine in the UK until the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act, when it was relegated to schedule 1, for harmful drugs with no unique medical value. Pressure from the US The driver for this ban was continued pressure from the US, which still cherished the illusion that, by disallowing medicinal use, recreational use could be restricted. The ban’s pretext was misuse of cannabis medicines by two GPs in Ladbroke Grove in London who were prescribing tincture of cannabis to patients. Rather than just having the GPs struck off the medical register, the government decided to accede to decades of US pressure. Subsequently, many states in the US and now 20 countries have reinstated cannabis medicines, but UK governments, Conservative and Labour, resisted this trend, despite the remarkable 1998 House of Lords report that recommended that cannabis again be made a medicine.4 At first Tony Blair’s Labour government was supportive. Then, for reasons still unclear but probably in response to pressure from certain newspapers, it made a sharp U turn. Cannabis possession offences were made a target for the police. Hundreds of thousands of people—mostly black or other ethnic minority young men—were convicted in the decade of the 2000s.5 Significant political benefit A common justification for ignoring the Lords’ recommendations was that, because WHO hadn’t changed the status of cannabis, for the UK to do so would breach international protocol. There was also significant political benefit in keeping cannabis illegal. Medical cannabis was sucked into this policy on the grounds that it might leak into the black market and that its use could be seen as a route to legalisation. Attacks on medical cannabis were relentless, and thousands of self medicating patients were prosecuted. Worse, when patients started to justify their use of cannabis through the common law defence of necessity, this was abolished by Labour under Gordon Brown.6 Magistrates hated this decision because it removed any latitude in their decision making: everyone brought to court was guilty. It also gave enormous power to the police: they could guarantee a conviction simply by making an arrest. To justify keeping cannabis illegal, claims of harms, such as from use while driving, were publicised, and the danger of its causing schizophrenia was repeatedly raised. Sanctions for possession and selling were cranked up and efforts made to stop imports from abroad. Supplies began to dry up, but this had the disastrous perverse result of cannabis use becoming more harmful. Paradox of prohibition This paradoxical effect of zealous prohibition increasing harms is not a new phenomenon. For more than a century attempts to prohibit drugs have led to the development and use of more harmful alternatives. So, when in the early 1900s smoking opium was banned, users switched to injecting morphine and heroin. Alcohol prohibition in the US led to hooch and methanol substitution. History repeated itself with cannabis. When customs agencies cracked down on importation, suppliers started growing their own in the UK. But to maximise their investment they grew a new form known colloquially as skunk. This contains much higher amounts of Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (d9THC), typically over 10%, and the plant is depleted of the other major bioactive ingredient, cannabidiol (CBD). CBD acts as a functional antagonist to the most problematic effects of d9THC, and especially it can attenuate the psychotomimetic and cognition impairing effects of d9THC.78 For this reason, recently, CBD has been used successfully as an adjunctive treatment for schizophrenia.9 The double whammy of losing CBD and increasing d9THC content in skunk was the worst possible outcome, as it engendered more psychotic-like experiences and more dependence. A recent analysis by researchers at King’s College London found that traditional herbal or resin cannabis, with its balance of d9THC and CBD, doesn’t cause schizophrenia—but that skunk might.10 The harshest penalties The absurdity of the prohibition of medical cannabis was clearly exposed by data on cannabis use. When medical cannabis was banned in 1971 fewer than half a million UK adults had used cannabis, yet by 2005 this number had risen 20-fold to over 10 million.11 The UK had some of the highest rates of cannabis use in the world despite some of the harshest penalties. The ban on medical cannabis certainly hadn’t reduced recreational use but had almost totally denied access for patients. Two exceptions were nabilone, a synthetic form of d9THC, which is licensed for nausea and vomiting induced by chemotherapy and for cachexia, and later nabiximols (marketed as Sativex), containing equal amounts of d9THC and CBD, licensed for pain and spasticity in multiple sclerosis. However, neither was much used, partly because of their controlled drugs status and, in the case of Sativex, the high cost. These preparations also lack the many other components of the cannabis plant, such as the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabivarin, which preclinical studies indicated could be a potent anti-epilepsy agent12 and which was predicted to boost the therapeutic effects of d9THC and CBD. Although most of the world fell in line with the 1961 UN convention banning medical cannabis, the Netherlands decided to allow medical and recreational use despite US pressure not to do so. More recently, 30 US states have now allowed use of medical cannabis. By 2018 more than 200 million US citizens had access to medical cannabis—but not a single UK resident. In 2017 German authorities allowed medical cannabis for 57 different indications. Case of Billy Caldwell The UK government resisted any softening of approach until 2018, when the case of the boy Billy Caldwell became public. Caldwell has a rare form of childhood epilepsy, Dravet syndrome, which results in thousands of seizures a month that are unresponsive to conventional anticonvulsant drugs. His mother tried to obtain medical cannabis in the UK but was denied, so she took him to the US and Canada to seek treatment. This was remarkably successful. With CBD Billy’s seizures reduced hugely, and with the addition of full extract cannabis oil they disappeared completely, probably because the oil contained some d9THC and tetrahydrocannabivarin. He was able to stop his other medications, and his cognitive and motor abilities markedly improved. When his mother returned home to Northern Ireland Billy’s GP was so impressed by the transformation that he agreed to prescribe the cannabis oil. But when local medical authorities found out they threatened the GP with a charge of gross medical misconduct if he continued to prescribe an “illegal” drug, so he stopped. To prevent Billy’s condition deteriorating, his mother took him back to Canada for more supplies and tried to import them into the UK, declaring them at Heathrow airport customs. The drugs were confiscated, and Caldwell’s condition rapidly worsened. His seizures returned, and he went into status epilepticus that required his admission to the intensive care unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, where he was sedated and ventilated. The public outcry to this cruel denial of a proved therapy, coupled with the possibility of Billy experiencing more brain damage or even dying, was profound. It persuaded the home secretary to give Billy a special licence to use cannabis oil, so his supplies were returned and his seizures stopped. Clearly a medicine The chief medical officer for England then reviewed the schedule 1 status of medical cannabis. She stated that cannabis was clearly a medicine, so on 1 November 2018 cannabis products were moved into schedule 2 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, but limiting prescription to specialists, or a GP acting under the instructions of one. There are no specified medical indications for medical cannabis in the UK: as long as the specialist has evidence of efficacy—from published reports or personal patient testimony—a prescription as a “special” can be offered. However, the roll out of medical cannabis has been much slower than patients and parents had hoped. Still only a tiny number of children with severe juvenile epilepsies are being treated, and many others continue to have multiple seizures because neurologists will not prescribe. There are several likely reasons for this. One is ignorance of the value of cannabis medicines, because few doctors have any training or experience in this area and are fearful of prescribing them off licence. Another reason for resistance could be that parents and patients lead this initiative rather than the medical profession. Some doctors fear that medical cannabis will lead to severe adverse effects such as psychosis, and others that it will lead to more recreational use, which seems unlikely given the current wide use and availability of black market cannabis. Additionally, some pharmacists and clinical commissioning groups are refusing to pay. Another substantial challenge is obtaining supplies, because currently all medical cannabis has to be sourced from foreign producers in the Netherlands and Canada. Cancer research model We must hope the situation will soon improve. One way forward would be to use the cancer research model, where small expert groups aligned to a specific indication, such as Tourette’s syndrome or adult epilepsy, are set up. These could conduct open effectiveness studies in this indication all using the same form and strength of medical cannabis and all collecting data on outcomes and adverse effects in the same way. Something similar has already been developed for ketamine for depression.13 Because such studies would come under the ambit of clinical audit rather than be a formal clinical trial they would be much easier to start and much less expensive than traditional trials. Any practitioners interested in joining such groups should email me. One final point: about 70 years ago another natural medicine came into the medical arena. This was welcomed enthusiastically by UK doctors even though there had been no placebo controlled trials of its efficacy because it was seen to fulfil a major clinical need. That drug was penicillin. If today’s medical profession could embrace cannabis in the same way as it did penicillin then the true value of this plant medicine should rapidly be realised. Biography David Nutt is the Edmond J Safra professor of neuropsychopharmacology and a psychiatrist at Imperial College London. He trained in the UK at Cambridge, Guy’s Hospital, London, and Oxford University, and at the US National Institutes of Health. His research focuses on the use of positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imaging to understand how drugs work in the brain and the mechanism underpinning psychiatric disorders, particularly addiction, depression, and anxiety disorders. In 2008-09 he chaired the government’s independent Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs.

  6. I found someones plot today I'm sure! I was out "walking my invisible dog" when I came across it. There was about 30 holes all dug out. I searched the area and found a spade, some bags of manure, chicken wire and half a bottle of Lucozade lol. If this is a guerilla grower preparing for this season then I'm not sure what to do? I personally think this area is way too easy to come across and wouldn't bother if it was me. Advice lads?? Provocateur.

  8. 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

  10. Hi Novel FAAH Inhibitor May Reduce Cannabis Withdrawal Symptoms in Men The investigational fatty acid amide hydrolase inhibitor (FAAH) PF-04457845 may decrease cannabis withdrawal symptoms and dependence in men, according to phase 2 study results published in Lancet Psychiatry. Researchers conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled parallel group trial of 46 men between age 18 and 55 who were diagnosed with cannabis dependence using Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) criteria. Study patients were randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to receive either 4 mg daily of PF-04457845 or placebo by means of a fixed block size of 6 patients, stratified according to degree and willingness to cease cannabis use. The co-primary end points were the difference in withdrawal symptoms after 4 weeks of therapy in addition to self-reported cannabis use and urine THC-COOH measures. After statistical analysis, the investigators found that compared with placebo therapy with PF-04457845 was associated with a significant reduction in cannabis withdrawal and accompanying mood symptoms (mean symptom score difference, 4.96; 95% CI, 0.71-9.21; P =.048) after treatment day 1. In addition, participants in the PF-04457845 arm saw a significant reduction in self-reported cannabis use after 4 weeks of treatment (mean joints per day difference, 0.88; 95% CI, 0.29-1.46; P =.0003) and lower urinary THC-COOH concentrations (mean difference of 657.92 ng/mL; 95% CI, 17.55-767.18; P =.009) . The primary study limitation was the enrollment of only male patients, which limited the generalizability of results. https://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/addiction/investigational-faah-inhibitor-may-reduce-cannabis-withdrawal-symptoms-in-men/article/825448/ Bongme
  11. Hi guys, so im doing some fastbuds auto flowers and everything seemed to be running completely fine. I did a foliar spray with 1ltr warm water to 2ml neem oil 1 teaspoon of dish soap. stupidly enough i did the spray whilst the lights was still on without thinking about the leafs maybe dehydrating or burning under the lights. The following next morning i came back to my girls looking like they're on deaths door. can anyone clarify what i did here.. whether i burnt them or its a deficiency which im not picking up as a first time grower. Im running, just normal compost soil with a 400w hps light, biobizz grom and bloom. 60/40 soil to perlite. I thought maybe over watering as my leafs are really drooping. just any advice would be lovely! they've been like this for about 2-3 days now. they've carried on growing in height but doesnt look like the leafs are repairing also struggling to upload my photos -.-
  12. Hi everyone, I recently directed a project at an event in parliament where patients spoke about how cannabis helps them, along with a quick update from the United Patients Alliance. Thought this community may appreciate it. Positive vibes, Mike.
  13. So here maybe a new idea for you all. ive come across something called the Kratky method. A hydroponics system with is just a bucket filled with water and a basket In the lid filled with perlite. Plant in the middle add nutes to water and grow outside. And it works! People have mentioned that stem rot and things would be likely but from what I’ve seen it works amazing and the buds come out beautiful. gas anyone else done this or is it just a lucky break he had? Also thing for Guerilla Growing purposes it’s amazing. Hang a bucket in a tree with an auto.
  14. Anyone tell me if this light "LED Grow Light, 600W Dual Chips Full Specturn Grow Lamp Red Blue Plant Light for Indoor/Garden/Hydronics/Vegetable/Flowers Growth,UK Plug(10W leds)" on amazon will do for 2 plants?
  15. Hello I have recently come across the new idea for Guerilla Growing. I have seen people are growing in the top of trees. Such an amazing idea. I just wanted to ask has anyone done this in the uk? Any advice and mistakes that can be minimised? And also do I still need to protect from slugs? I will be surrounding the plant with a bet for birds but I’m not sure what pests need to be worried about up trees
  16. My daughter shared this with me, as she is following Jeff Ditchfield and Bud Buddies (as I don't facebook).
  17. If you had the chance to help legalisation of cannabis what would you want in/not home growing of 12 plants, ban on strong skunk, would you want it sold in shops with edibles,

  20. Hey y'all. I have a question to everyone who travels and consumes cannabis and has insomnia. I was recently traveling to a country where cannabis is still not legal, so had to face my insomnia, a thing that I forgot about ever since I started using cannabis. I think the SPAM link removed I was struggling with, were enormous. And when I had to travel for a longer period and not have cannabis on my way, my insomnia was again torturing me. Is there any idea of what I can do in those cases? Has anyone tried using yoga? Or do you have any other ideas?
  21. What i don't gree with is to stigmatize cannabis and label it as something that doesn't make you "sleep at night" with a clear conscience and producing wine is a good thing. We all know that alcohol is responsible for more deaths than cannabis every year. So i don't understand and don't agree with those who want to demonize a plant. Alcohol intoxicates as much as cannabis do. So why cannabis is "bad" and alcohol is "good"?
  22. Seems like some1 got close to the real thing! Check this out! The colour is amazing! https://www.maxim.com/maxim-man/weed-wine-2016-10
  23. Case Reports: Cannabinoids Improve Speech In Patients With Tourette Syndrome Hannover, Germany: The daily administration of cannabinoids is associated with improved speech fluency in patients with Tourette Syndrome (TS), according to a pair of case reports published in The International Journal of Molecular Sciences. A pair of researchers from the Hannover Medical School in Germany assessed the impact of daily cannabinoid treatment in two TS patients with treatment-resistant vocal blocking tics. One patient underwent therapy utilizing THC-dominant whole-plant cannabis. The other utilized dronabinol (oral THC). In both cases, authors reported that treatment resulted in "significant improvement not only of simple and complex motor and vocal tics, but also in the overall symptomology including comorbid conditions and most importantly significantly improved patients' quality of life including their social contacts and performance at school without side effects." They concluded, "[C]annabis-based medicine appears to be effective in treatment-resistant TS patients with vocal blocking tics." Prior studies and case reports have similarly demonstrated that the administration of either inhaled cannabis or oral synthetic THC is associated with substantial improvements in TS-related symptoms. sauce
  24. Hi there, pretty new to growing, but I know how to, but usually I just stick to autos. I am growing this Purple Bud strain from SensiSeeds and I am having a few problems with it. I have noticed my leaves looked kind of krinkled and shiny just in the krinkled bits. They are canoeing (this has got better over the days as I started flushing) and I have notices these yellow marks on the leaves (In pictures) and I have seen 3 tiny holes in 3 of my leaves. Also the plant is 4 weeks old and it's quite short and very very bush and stubby with the thickest stem I've ever seen on a plant this old. I was just wondering whether the stubbiness size, bushiness and thickness of this strain is normal? How can I treat the leaves? And also, When should I switch to 12/12? I'll try and upload some photos via another website and enter the URL here. Thank you.
