It’s official! Thailand Gov’t is now buying weed from home growers, Forbes says

Thailand fresh update is here. As said in Forbes, and I believe it’s already anywhere else said, that Thailand government shows again very serious intentions toward medical marijuana market, and they are doing fast! Thai Officials already promised few months ago, that the whole Thailand shall gain from legalization, now it is surprisingly coming true. Recently the Minister of Health of Thailand stressed twice in a speach, that “We are in the process of changing laws to allow the medical use of marijuana freely. We have high confidence that marijuana will be among the major agricultural products for Thai households. We are speeding up the law changes.” (due to Forbes)

The Thai Weed

Sweet! I’m checking tickets to Thailand. I ever loved this country from my first visit, and now they are going to trade weed freely. Of course, I think, the households may obviously lack in growing technology, they could hardly hold a very accurate thc limitation. I think, we are having beautiful Thai weed all around for the next couple of seasons hopefully. Don’t be much in a rush, no deadlines set yet, but they speed up, speed up, speed up. Check where the situation is now before going to Thailand if weed is the purpose, don’t go tomorrow morning asking marijuana in airport – still the bad plan.

According to Asia Times, Maejo University researchers planted 12,000 new medical marijuana seedlings in northern Thailand’s Chiang Mai, while government’s Department of Medical Service officials have provided provided the seedlings and are now supervising the grow.

Officials expect the plants will produce medical marijuana within six months, Forbes says.

Longterm Thailand Visa

Here is the hint for staying in Thailand longer: In Thailand many backpackers stay for long to try their fortune. Freelancers, online workers, like writers, designers, developers and stuff. If anyone meets a coin miner, ask him how’s Thailand in his field, we can add coin miners to the list )) It may be something changed, but as for my last check it was always extremely easy to have an education visa in Thailand. You apply to one of Thai language schools, which are numerous in the country and in Bangkok specifically, and I think it’s even fun to learn Thai a little, and by such they allow you to stay in the country for few months while the course lasts, there is some minimal requirement for a visa-run, like you need to make it once in a while but not often (requires a double-check). Having this permit you’ll be visiting the immigration office monthly or bimonthly, they may ask some “how are you” in Thai to see that you really study it, even if badly. They also perform random checks in class that you really attend it. Pretty much a system like we all have had in school, hahaha. And the good news that instead of Thai language you can alternatively apply to an English course, or some Thai Food Cooking course, and still you are having the same educational stay permission. I think you can do either in your own country, or right from the country. All works. Tested. Very easy.

CBD Edibles vs Vaping: Bare Facts

The abundance of methods to use cannabis that have come up recently can even put seasoned cannabis users in a dilemma. While there are conventional methods like smoking the herb straight away or using its oils or butter-based products, the next generation is getting more experimental with methods like vaping and edibles, that let you discreetly enjoy the benefits of CBD. If you are not able to decide which is the most suitable method for you among the two, here is all you need to know.

What Are Edibles?

The term edibles can have a wide array of meanings, but what exactly is a cannabis edible? In simple terms, a CBD edible is any food item or drink that has CBD in it. The market is brimming today with alternative food products infused with CBD that may help you reduce stress, or something. The ones who are new to it, ideally prefer to start consuming cannabis through edibles. On the other hand, the people who have a keen interest in cooking and cannabis, decide to combine it together. They make food dishes of their choice and then add CBD oil to it. If that’s not enough, restaurants are opening up in the States where it is legal. They offer an entire menu of cannabis-infused food and drinks. All you have to do is place your order and enjoy the delicacies with the goodness of some CBD.

Edibles give a lasting high

If you are seeking a more prolonged high, edibles are certainly the best way. When you ingest CBD (or THC) with food, your body takes time to digest the edible. After that, the THC (or CBD) goes through the liver and then into the bloodstream. It ensures that their effect lasts anywhere from 3 to 7 hours, many sources suggest. A medicated brownie however starts hitting in about 40-60 mins, that’s from personal tries, yet it holds long. As for a Cambodian happy pizza, it starts slower, indeed, and it reaches its best in, yes, about 3-4 hours. And it’s really-really high!

You get a variety of them

From gummy bears to chocolate, coffee to beer, cheesecakes, pancakes, pretty everything, and even smoothies; you can get some cbd ideas here, for example: cbd-infused products.

Yet, if you wish to cook, you can turn any dish into an edible by adding cannaoil or cannabutter into it. See these edible recipes, it’s a cookbook app, very handy and it’s free.

Edibles suit the medical purpose

Are you suffering from asthma? Or maybe you are not comfortable smoking? Edibles can become the best way for the people who cannot smoke the plant either due to health issues, age, or maybe by personal choice. It is a completely discreet method: From the looks of it, no one can tell if you are eating a typical thc-brownie or one that has CBD in it. So, edibles allow you to get your daily dose of CBD (or THC, or both) discreetly, even if you are in public.

The Cons

Takes longer to show effects

Since your body first has to digest the food, before the cannabinoids can get to your bloodstream, it can take a long time until you see the effects of CBD or THC. It can get a little troublesome if you are using the edibles to treat pain.

Difficult to regulate dosage

You can never accurately know how much CBD is there in the readymade edibles. And even when you make it yourself, it can get accumulated in a particular portion while the other might not have any CBD. Keeping a tab on the dosage is tricky with edibles.

There is a chance of over-indulgence

Do you love brownies and tend to finish the entire box in one go? Well, you can’t do that with cannabis-infused brownies, so you have to stop yourself from overindulging, which we all know is quite a challenge.

Vaporizers

Vaping is the latest trend among teenagers. A vaporizer is a tiny, compact, electronic device that lets you inhale the vapor that consists of cannabinoids. It consists of a rechargeable battery, a coil, and has a compartment that holds your weed, CBD oil, or vape juice. The vaporizer heats up the material to a temperature that it starts producing vapor that you can inhale.

What are the pros

Gives an instant effect

A vaporizer can provide immediate relief. When you inhale the vapor, the cannabinoids go first to your lungs and then into the bloodstream, pretty immediately, and it helps to relieve whatever you have to relieve.

Allows you to measure dosage

With a vaping device, you can measure the level of CBD you are going to smoke. It is solely upon you to pick a vape juice, decide the content of CBD, and how much time you are going to smoke it for. Once you start feeling the effects and get better, all you have to do is press a button to turn it off. 

Pocket-friendly

To start vaping, you have to invest in a quality vaping device that will last for a good time. The only recurring expenditure is of vape juice or CBD oil, but if you use it smartly, even that can go on for months. So, in the long run, a vape will not burn a hole in your pocket.

Takes time to get used to it

A vaporizer is a unique product based on technological advancement. While some are basic, many new devices have high-tech features as well. It can take a little time to get accustomed to the basic functioning and then make use of the many features.

Final Takeaway

CBD is a versatile compound, and the ways to consume it far exceed the benefits that it offers. Nonetheless, if you are looking for long-lasting effects, you can always either opt to buy it or make edibles. But, if you are using as a cure for pain, then you may choose to go for a quick hit of CBD, and a vape can give you exactly that. You can get a high-grade marijuana vaporizer from online stores and enjoy the therapeutic effects of CBD.
