Cover STORY:

The Dangers of
Synthetic Cannabis

PRODUCT FEATURE:

Easy Butter Maker

NATHAN FOISY
STAFF EDITOR
People across the nation are falling prey to a new and
potentially dangerous artificial drug: synthetic cannabis,
primarily sourced from the Middle East and China.
Synthetic cannabis comes in small pots, and according
to a spokesperson from the DEA, comes in 400 different
varieties and goes by hundreds of names like Spice, K-2,
fake weed, Yucatan Fire, Bliss, Blaze, Skunk and Moon
Rocks. Synthetic cannabis, unlike pot however, can cause
a huge variety of symptoms, which can be severe including:
Agitation, vomiting, hallucination, paranoia, tremor, seizure,
tachycardia, hypokalemia, chest pain, cardiac problems,
stroke, kidney damage, acute psychosis, brain damage
and even death.
Synthetic cannabis is made in underground labs, often
in China and the only constant is that there is no quality
control in the formulation process. Without regulations the
results can be deadly since the drug can be up to 100 times
stronger than marijuana.
The process for extracting and creating this synthetic drug
seems complicated and unnatural (dissolving chemicals in
acetone and spraying them on plants to dry) leaving active
ingredients found in painkillers, cancer treatments, and
fertilizers.
Dr. Sherri Kacinko, a toxicologist with NMS Labs, commented,
(I joke) if youre going to use fake pot, please give me a call.
Give me your blood and urine for research testing, because
were not even allowed to give it to rats.
Though many of us would object to anything other than
marijuanas natural form, the drug is more widely available
sold in smoke shops and is cheaper than pot. Additionally,
one reason for its popularity is that it does not show up
in drug testing. The latter is particularly advantageous
for military members, as drug tests cannot pick up the
synthetic cannabis in their systems thus, often making them
regular users.
Synthetic cannabis is another unfortunate concoction
created by man for reasons of profitability, convenience
and availability, but with the complications of using synthetic
cannabis, it should be strictly regulated (if not illegal). The
dangers are overwhelming, not to mention the mere thought
of consuming synthetic cannabis seems to be opposing
everything natural not fake and synthetic.

Ever want to make your own edibles? Our featured product of
the month is the Easy Butter Maker. With edibles emerging
as a hot new market in many medical marijuana states,
and especially recreational cannabis states, it is becoming
the norm to make your own edibles whether medical or
recreational.
One of the most classic ways to infuse butter or oils with
cannabis, is by using the age old tried and trusted method
via crockpot. Some potential downsides that come with this
infusion method are: this is a time consuming and lengthy
process (minimum of a 4 hour slow low steep), it permeates
the resonating smell of cannabis profusely, and you have to
strain the flower out from the liquid at the end of it all.
Now with the Easy Butter Maker, you can infuse butter or oils
within a short 10 minute time frame and cook immediately
without having to wait hours for an extraction to take place.
Unlike their competitors, the Easy Butter Maker comes in
a 1 stick (quarter cup) and 2 stick unit (half cup). You can
use trim or bud flowers, for highest potency we recommend
using bud flowers ground up. With the 1 stick unit, you can
infuse up to 5 grams of cannabis into butter or oil and the
2 stick unit infuses up to 10 grams (slightly over a quarter
ounce).
You can run the process through up to 3 times to get a
90% cannabis extraction from the flower. The process is so
simple, all you have to do is put the butter or oil in the lower
unit compartment that screws off, add a half cup of water
to the butter compartment, put the cannabis in the strainer,
put the strainer in the butter compartment, reassemble the
unit and put on medium heat on a stove. Within less than 10
minutes you will hear a gurgling sound (not quite a boiling
sound from a tea kettle) but when the steam comes out you
know its done.
Clean up is even easier and requires minimal effort. While
we have seen some edible companies use similar devices to
produce edibles for dispensaries, its more for the at home
recreational user or medical patient. The Easy Butter Maker
price points make the product easily accessible to everyone
($49.95 and $69.95 - with $5 shipping), whether you are a
newbie to cannabis or a seasoned veteran.

Stoner has been a negative title for cannabis users for


generations, skewing all the positive effects of use to the
negative. The issue with this title, all the bad press, and
adverse effects of such a title cannot be changed overnight,
but must come from the people that use cannabis.
Presenting positive stories to the world of their experiences
as a cannabis user will help take away the bad rap and
inflammatory nicknames. The power lies with the people,
and a breakthrough evolution is on its way with your help!
The marijuana industry will gain a much needed fresh
perspective and title, as the next generation of minds begin
to assert their presence in all aspects of society. Many
young adults (and many of their parents), are attempting
to eliminate the stigmas attached to societys perception of
lazy and unintelligent pot smokers. A large majority of those
who now work in the industry realize the market potential,
and are becoming increasinly motivated to spend long hours
working in the industry due to the potential for substantial
rewards. Marketing firms are presently attempting to push
cannabis into the well-rounded category by trying to create
respectable views of it and how we as consumers use it.

Former Alaska United States Senator Mike Gravel, has been
appointed head of the cannabis company Kush, and will be
overseeing the marketing and developing of its marijuana
products. The 84 year old, former Senator who ran for U.S.
President in 2008, will now be working to give patients the
medicine they need for medicinal and recreational use,
including a lozenge called Kubby.
Gravel served as the US Senator for Alaska from 1969 to
1981. He has been a prominent and proactive voice in the
war on drugs, as well as a respected cannabis advocate
(partly due to his own medical reasons for using marijuana).
Steve Kubby, current Chairman of the Board for Cannabis
Sativa, Inc., stated, Senator Gravel stood up to Nixon, stood
up to the Pentagon, and now he is standing up to those in
power who would keep the healthful benefits of cannabis
from those who need them. Hes been a director of Kush
since its inception and brings invaluable perspective and
connections to our group. Hes a true American hero and
were excited to have him serving in this capacity.
Senator Gravel has worked on several committees,
including the Public Works, Interior, Finance, and
Environmental branches, as well as being instrumental
in getting Congressional approval for the Trans-Alaska
Pipeline in 1973. His political experience, innovative and
forward-thinking mindset have no doubt given him invaluable
knowledge to bring to cannabis reformation and his work
with the Cannabis Sativa, Inc. Gravel said, Im anxious to
assist in bringing this important resource to a broader
market in a serious and credible way.
Cannabis Sativa, Inc. researches and develops a number of
specialized cannabis products from topicals to edibles, as
well as cosmetics and oils.

Jennifer DeFalco, co-owner of the Denver-based advertising


company Cannabrand, commented on one way to view this
issue. She spoke up to address the evident rift in cannabis
culture, she went as far comparing Colorado dispensaries
to underground abortion clinics. Though this view may be
a little harsh and she could risk losing some clientele and
support, new supporters have also been brought to the
forefront.
Next year, Cannabrand intends to launch its new marketing
campaign Destigmatize to Legalize, aimed at changing
skeptics and the overall societys perception of cannabis and
to show that people of all occupations and lifestyles partake.
DeFalco told the Denver Post, Theres a whole range of
casual consumers, there isnt one single cannabis culture.
And baby boomers, women and moms are changing their
minds because theyre experimenting with it on their own
and realizing its not as harmful as the stigma has portrayed
it to be for so long.
The Colorado Symphony Orchestra, shares similar goals
by hosting summer events rightfully named Classically
Cannabis. Sponsors from inside and outside the industry
attended last summer, resulting in raising the cannabis
normality awareness as well as fund raising for the cause.
Evan Lasky, executive vice president of the CSO, remarked to
the the Denver Post, Look around; this is not stoner town,
we have to build new audiences because the old people are
dying off. We have to fight this perception of elitism.
A new title for the cannabis culture is sorely needed, but
it isnt easy to remove the enigma of Stoner references.
Reorganizing societys discernment of cannabis culture
will indeed be a difficult and daunting task. Its time to take
cannabis in the positive direction we all know we can achieve
if everyone that uses speaks of the positive and medicinal
effects of cannabis use. We dont want to be seen as lazy
stoners but as responsible enlightened users for the pain
relief, relaxation, and happiness without the use of the more
dangerous and addicting alcohol.

The Pirate Candy Company line of


chocolate includes a milk chocolate,
white chocolate, dark chocolate and
sugar-free milk chocolate. They use
a tasteful blend of belgian chocolates
and high concentrations of hash oil
infusion. My favorite thing about their
product is that they have perfected the
process of getting more milligrams per
8

The dosing is 60mg silver dollar pucks,


120mg silver dollar pucks, and a 240mg
Quadzilla mini bar which is scored into
4 doses of 60mg each. They have a new
CBD lines of chocolate bars coming out
later this year, and they are also working
on a 10mg low dosage edible as well.

They hope to marijuana become


accepted recreationally for what its
worth in the next 5-10 years, which is
less severe than alcohol or tobacco.
They also hope to see the medical
research expand in the cannabis sector.

We at Pirate use the RSO method


because its what weve always used
in our edible creations over the years.
Tried and true, as they say. BHO and
Co2 extraction methods are being
exacted and perfected everyday,
yet both are in the early stages of
commercial/mainstream function and
there is a lot to explore. That being
said we are looking into both BHO and
Supercritical Co2 extraction for other
applications outside of our chocolates.
In 5 years, they hope to be successfully
licensed in several other medical
marijuana states. They are currently in
the process of penning a deal to license
their brand to both Washington and
Nevada. Additionally, theyve landed a deal
with Apple Box Distribution. They seek
to be perceived as a trusted brand that
people can count on, and a constantly
forward-moving progressing company to
meet the demands of their patient base.
Its pertinent to our lives and the
people around us. Its the beginning

Pirate Candy Company promotes


medicating responsibly. Just as its not
okay to leave an open bottle of alcohol
around small children or teenagers,
its not okay to leave edibles out for
easy access to pets or kids. They
believe education is paramount at
this stage of our cannabis revolution.
Explain what it is, a medicine,
rather than something to abuse.
While we currently lack regulations
on infusions, extractions, edibles and
testing in the California market, Pirate
Candy Company believes regulation
creates stabilization. They point out that
we can follow industry standards in our
crossover food, beverage and medicine
markets. Why wouldnt we adhere this
industry to other industry standards?
Until California has a body of
government dedicated to regulating
marijuana, edible vendors in all other
states aside from Colorado must
stay ahead of the curve and follow
strict health and safety guidelines.

Pirate Candy Company is making a


big splash in the California medical
marijuana market. It all began as
cannabis advocacy, for personal reasons
and patient needs. They found a need to
make good medicine available, where
there was most certainly a lack thereof.
Ten years ago, Pirate Bill was a patient
at a single club, supplying edibles on a
private basis to his collective. He ended
up running that collective when another
club with a 55+ patient base asked him
to make Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) infused
chocolate. It was originally something
small that turned into a great thing
that has helped numerous patients.
