Cannabis Indica/Cannabis Sativa:

The Essential Guide to the

World’s Finest Marijuana Strains

edited by: S. T. Oner

Intro by: Greg Green

If you are new to the different varieties (strains) of cannabis and new to the families (cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are the main ones, they do speak of auto-flowers as well) then this book sent to me to review by green candy press is great for you. ( http://greencandypress.com/ )

It is rather commercial with many links to seedbanks printed and source images from their websites. that being said, for a beginner’s education, its a nice read.

If you are a experienced grower/toker/strain connoisseur, don’t waste your time unless you want some budporn for guests on the coffee table.

Alisa Christensen was a stunt performer and actor in Los Angeles from 1988 to 2001. She enjoyed a long, crazee, love-hate relationship with the entertainment industry. Ironically she was injured in a camping accident. She was taken to USC where she received a stroke while under anesthesia. Brain damage was much more tricky to navigate than burn damage. 5 years and 20 operations later she escaped LA. Nomadic wandering through existential miasma finally settling down, she now lives in Portland with Foxy The Little Dog.

This biography was provided by the author or their representative.
As a chronically ill woman, I keep a copy of this book by my bed in my rotation of positive literature to read when I am confined to my bed. It is a source of laughter when I feel like crying, understanding when I feel misunderstood, and strength when I feel that I cannot go on. It is my privilege to own a copy signed by the author.

Beyond Tears

By: M. A. Marks

Book Description

Publication Date: January 22, 2003
The book Beyond Tears is a true story of what one family had to deal with when their eleven-year-old daughter was diagnosed as being mentally ill.The writer attempts to share a variety of issues that a family may have to address while living with a child who is emotionally disturbed (ED). He explains how the illness caused his daughter to become so dysfunctional, that she could no longer attend regular classes in school. The book also tries to explain how the Special Education Program tries to accommodate her special needs. As the issues escalated, his daughter had to be placed in a residential treatment center far away from the home environment. This placement created many new concerns for the family.The author has attempted to present his story in a way that most parents could relate to if they were in a similar situation. The story was written in a chronological order of events beginning with some family history, moving to the school years up through high school graduation. He tries to explain some of the methodology, logic and sometimes, just plain common sense of how his family worked through these issues.The book encompasses the dynamics of family life, social relationships, school systems, finances, community services (mental health centers, social services, courts, etc.), and the medical establishment. Each year there are more and more children being placed into our Special Education Programs, who have been diagnosed as emotionally disturbed (ED) or learning disabled (LD). There have been many books written about these children by doctors, social workers, therapists and educators. This is one of the few books that are written by a parent, who wanted to share with other parents, how the illness of his child effected their family. It is hoped that by reading this book you will have a better understanding of what a family has to address relating to a child with mental illness.

A father’s unconditional love for a unique child expressed in wordsMay 23, 2012

I was on the outside of this tale looking in where real life is concerned. That being said, this book allows you to take up my position as an observer and takes you deep into the world of a troubled child and a loving parents journey to find answers, hope and strength for themselves and their child.

Golden Goat Cannabis Strain

10 of 10 Medical Leaves


Golden Goat was created by accident in Topeka Kansas when a male Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated
Mr. Dank’s freak Island Sweet Skunk mother. The strain is often light green and pink in color,
which is indicative of its Hawaiian sativa side. The scent is described as being a combination of sweet, sour and spicy with a tropical fruit flavor. Effects are strong, and felt from head to toe with a high lasting 1-2 hours.
Flowering time is 9-11 weeks with a golden appearance closer to harvest.

Medical marijuana strains and Fibromyalgia

Medical marijuana strains and Fibromyalgia

by Breezy Kiefair on Monday, January 24, 2011 at 8:02am ·

Hi I wanted to provide some information to help out others who are on or considering use of medical marijuana for fibromyalgia. Marijuana that is used for medicine is divided into two general families. They are referred to as indicas and sativas (there are hybrids that are described as a percentage indica and a precentage sativa)

Indica strains tend to be sleepier and are better in my opinion for nighttime, however for me, indicas are also more effective for deep pain.

Indica medical marijuana strains are short, bushy plants with wide leaves. Indica plants typically grow faster and have a higher yield than the sativa variety. Medicine produced from cannabis indica plants have higher CBD and lower THC counts therefore a pure indica strain will produce a heavier, sleepy type of high. The flowering stage lasts between 6 to 8 weeks.Plant Origins: Afghanistan, Morocco, and Tibet.

Sativa strains are more for daytime. The feeling is more social, more antidepressant, creative, more energetic, and clearer headed. Sativas are also good as a “distractor” from the pain, they will help you get interested in whatever it is you are doing to help you not notice how much pain you are in.

The sativa strain of marijuana is the complete opposite of the indica strain. Sativa medical marijuana pants are tall, thin plants, with narrow leaves, and generally are a lighter shade of green then their counterpart, the indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. Medicine produced from cannabis sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC counts which produces a more clear headed, energetic type of high. The flowering stage lasts between 10 to 16 weeks. Plant Origins: Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

The best advise I can give is to change your strains up often! I usually keep at leat one form of indica and one sativa around, but like to keep two forms of each on hand. If you find you are becoming tolerant to one strain and you have another lying around, try mixing them, sometimes it can overcome the tolerance to an inividual strain. Also I keep a jar around that I put shake of different strains in. It is my emergency jar. This way, I always have something on hand that I should get at least some relief from smoking.

Another point… you don’t have to smoke it! You can make butter and then cookies, bread, brownies, etc. There are also teas available as well as tincture (a liquid placed under the tongue), and more options are available all the time.
