Ole Ole outs in free! The FTC, federal trade commission, just spread around a friendly message about unscientific claims in CBD marketing materials which are allowed no more. That’s important, I suggest for the blogs too, just in case to keep things white, shiny and in alignment to law, everyone wishes on oneself’s website of course
It’s Not The Wild West Out There
— says the saying in FTC official website. And it simply means but not limited to that (finally!!) no one can invent freely anymore the medical issues that cannabis solve, it’s over now, and it is a good news for us for the cannabis market.
In fact, health-related representations for CBD products are subject to the same established requirements of scientific substantiation the FTC has applied to any advertised health claim. So for sake of trustworthy information spread all around to end-consumers this enforcement is supposed to sweep any unproven representations that CBD products would treat diseases like cancers, diabetes and other serious medical conditions.
The Official List of Approved Claims
Despite what they say…(about CBD)
By far this is the official list of health conditions where Cannabis (and CBD in particular) DOES NOT help at all neither there is a scientific proof.
Colombian unit of “Forbes” suggests that Marijuana market in Colombia is reaching 166 million dollars in sales by 2025. The very weed-growing place on Earth this one was ever before, and even more it is now, the whole lot of cannabis companies, investors and private marijuana enterpreneurs appear in the country since the government has changed the strategy towards legal cannabis. The very milestone for the whole marijuana industry happened in 2016 when FARC (the, so called, cocaine syndicate, indeed it was a liberation army) negotiated peace with the government, bringing peace into the country after 50-year long civil war, and, also allowing the legal cannabis business in Colombia to continue ever since as the lawful enterprise.
Drug-dealing image of the past plays a positive role for Colombia now
Colombia obviously bears a certain image of the drug dealing place, mainly for its cocaine exports going out for half a century into all countries all around the planet. Panama channel, the biggest maritime hub of the world, played its role in it too, and the clashes on the border between Colombian syndicate force and government troops of both Colombia and Panama happened all the time, the babylon news say so, people in Panama say so, governments say so. That was the place where the war on plants went beyond “the cops surpressing children”, but more likely shaped into the form of a real fullscale war between the armed forces, far bigger than just a rebellion.
From the other side, no doubt, “the Colombian” became the synonim to “the Quality” in the street black markets of all countries, from those involved into consumption of drugs. The whole story is getting to be already the ancient history quite quickly, the war has gone, the Colombian government signed the historical peace treaty with the FARC syndicate, and the president is eventually got awarded by the Nobel prize for this. All is well. The peaceful new age arrived upon the beautiful country and it’s time to set the clock to 4:20.
Well, the past is the past, and now the un-intentinal strategy of making colombian quality trademark is a good card to play, the Canna World Congress takes place in Colombia, which is a good news for the nation, we shall hope it’ll grow into a big worldwide event influencing the industry. Here is the logic: the Colombian coffee, one of the best in the world, who may argue? and this fact clearly demonstrates the farming skills of the growers, the knowledge, the technology of the farming, along with Colombian soil and Colombian sun, are altogether the very proper combination.
Peace treaty with FARC
The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, also called FARC, from Spanish Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, was formed in 1964 as a Marxism-Leninism war unit to oppose the imperialism. Ever since, all the way till 2016, the country experienced the endless fullscale civil war between the government and the FARC. It’s not the editorial of this website to judge which party was right’er and which was wrong’er, but the history of the world says both were badasses, with the only difference that only one of them making the official stats for casualities among and violations against civilians.
Anyway, among other activities (like politically motivated kidnappings) the famous colombian drug trade was what FARC was doing to raise funds, having the well established taxation system in the territories of their control, allowing farmers to grow, mostly cocaine and weed also, and in exchange giving the effective protection from the government enforcement. So, in 2012, after 50 years of the civil war, the long-long negotiated started, resulting the national referendum and then the Peace Treaty signed by both sides in 2016 in Havana, Cuba.
It’s in your hands, of all Colombians, to decide with your vote to support this historic accord that puts an end to this long conflict between the children of the same nation, —President Juan Manuel Santos (of Colombia) said, according to an Associated Press translation, prior to the national referendum on the peace treaty with FARC
The part of the deal touched the drug trafficking, so that FARC should stop making cash out of worldwide cocaine trade, and by that allowing the government to develop the rural communities, whereto they have had quite a limited access in times of war. And the drug legislation of the country has been changing along with the peace negotiation, of course.
Marijuana Laws in Colombia
In 1994 the possession was decriminalized in Colombia, by decision of the Contitutional Court, making the country to be among the first countries, like Uruguay, Netherlands, Portugal, Argentina, not many but they are a number, loosing the tention of the globally histerical war on plants. Personal use has become legal de-juro, and possession of 20 grams of weed for personal use are not prosecuted since 2012, and also this includes 1 gram of cocaine. Home cultivation of 20 plants for personal use is legal since 2015.
However, the anti-plant activists applied another attempt to limit marijuana use back again, when the government quite suddenly disallowed the use of weed in public areas in 2018, also enabling police to perform personal search and confiscation of drugs, including those small decriminalized amounts of porro in violation of the existing laws. Half a year later the consitutional court acknowledged the mentioned “enforcement” being unconstitutional, in 2019.
Do not forget to check on all laws, decrets, latest news before doing anything in this regard in any foreign country, it is not yet a total nirvanna in the world yet, many changes apply continiously, and especially nowadays they are frequent everywhere.
Law 1787 is the main on Cannabis Business in Colombia
The Law 1787, dated: 6th of July of 2016, is now the main document for the cannabis market in Colombia, allowing production, trade, transport, import and export of medical cannabis, industrial hemp, or other scientific purpose, and by far not allowing explicitly the recreational trade except of the personal use (which is not the trade) with the 20 grams in personal possession, and 20 plants at home.
The business activity on cannabis should be licensed, this law suggests, by National Institute of Control on Medical Substances, and in Spanish, in case you need it for search to explore more on the topic, its name is: Instututo Nacional de de Vigilancia de Medicamentos y Alimentos.

Hey fellow site st’owners! How’s life. Have you already frightened all your readers about pains and cancers and all sorts of other spooky-schmooky stuff? If you say yes on that then you are not our fellow site st’owner, hahaha // You only remember this is a private web site and we suggest to stay away if you are here by any reason other than curiosity for reading my off-deck (or is it off-key?) opinion. This my polite ‘please stay away’ was for humans, and for anyone related to any sort of gügle bots for such I have my very special “Get away and never come back unless intentions change”, it’ll just make my access log stats better for reading // but for friends let me go on… Better call it a pothead’s fantasy rather than think it’s an attempt to ruin or alter anyone’s belief. I respect all beliefs, and personally I also support World Snake and Lady Yaga – it’s totally your own decision to choose what you are up to.
Pain is a Natural Mechanics
All because PAIN is a natural thing and we need it. And we’d very likely could NOT survive neither evolve without it.
A Question I have…
My friend, the patient reader of this train of thoughts, IF WE virtually find it too far stupid to protect a finger from a hammer by taking pills, why we wish so recklessly to disable the same protection mechanism (the pain) when it comes to the inner organs?
Feeling pain I need as a signal from my body to understand clearly that something went really wrong and how far it went. It might be a wrong food, or too cold, maybe a wrong armchair for one’s spine, or merely a tiredness which is the worst enemy. And to solve it I need to fix the wrong condition rather than a chemical to cheat my own body. I will know soon what exactly makes me feel pain less, naturally, and by that the knowledge is power and the knowledge is life.
Love yourself the most.
Cannabis Spirituality vs. Cannabis the New Pill
I have heard an opinion, a couple of times maybe, and it’s easy to find one, suggesting that Cannabis Plant is a gift given to Humanity for a pain relief. What a rare piece of shit it is, I think.
Cannabis is for Love — Ayurvedic medics used cannabis mostly as aphrodisiac, one grand master in it, who was from Sri Lanka, he told me, they used it for a million years until 2015 when eventually the liberation arrived to Sri Lanka. It’s a psychoactive plant and it hits thoughts, and there cannot be another reason to use “psycho” in the definition which simply means “soul” in Greek, not “pill” not “cancer” (god forbid).
Cannabis is for Communication — Spirituality is what makes one talking to God, by some means. Even tho you are the God by yourself, and some religions support the idea, or you better prefer some outer God, whatever. You communicate to people easily and with pleasure when stoned, and you can communicate to anybody and a god is not an exception.
Certain psychoactives, particularly hallucinogens, have been used for religious (spiritual) purposes since prehistoric times. Native Americans have used peyote cacti containing mescaline for religious ceremonies for as long as 5700 years – Wiki states. No “medicine” mentioned.
Psychoactives change the brain function and result in alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, or behavior; for ritual, spiritual, or shamanic purposes; or for research. No “medicine” again, at least not that much of it.
Love and Pain among Cannabis Websites
Try a small research, it’s fun. In search type “site:domain.com keyword”, and it will find the number of entries, I used ggl. Most of search engines will find also the variations of the words, so the method somewhat demonstrates the approach. Keywords are “Love” (L), “Pain” (P), “Cancer” (C) and “Spirituality” (S). Take a “Ranking Sum” (ΣR), where bad ones a negative, and good ones are positive, like this:
ΣR = L + S – P – C, then divide by total sum (ΣT = L+S+P+C) to get the shares rather than absolute numbers, like this: ΣR / ΣT.
The resulting Value shall be the rating of a Goodness, hahaha!
Herewego, what is in the end:
Love 7160, Pain 5200, Cancer 6200, Spirituality 816
Love 355, Pain 757, Cancer 435, Spirituality 50
Love 182, Pain 5, Cancer 0(zero), Spirituality 1
Love 938, Pain 1190, Cancer 587, Spirituality 73
Love 122K, Pain 69K, Cancer 3K, Spirituality 0.7K
Love 8840, Pain 3750, Cancer 1460, Spirituality 527
Love 129, Pain 77, Cancer 9, Spirituality 4
Still think Marijuana is a new pill? Hm, okay, it’s a free choice of a free man, after all.
