The Growth of Summer
Like a feisty plant with strong roots, this network continues to grow. Most of the new
programs that were added in the spring are now finding loyal listeners. The statistics
surround the website and the many different social platforms Time 4 Hemp is found on are
quickly swelling. New sponsors have joined the family and 3 new programs were added
to the schedule in June.

I also want to give a BIG 'THANK YOU' to Paul Stanford, Mary Lynn Mathre, Al Byrne, Al
Graham, and Steve Danks for the cash donations they made to the network. Had they not
done what they did, we most likely would have gone silent in the wind never to be heard
from again. Even though we are growing stronger, we still need more sponsors to get our
strength up to where we can withstand the forces of Nature.

Joining our morning line up are Doug McVay with his program 'From Thought To Action'. It can be found at 9:00a.m.
(PST) each Tuesday and Thursday. Doug is considered a founding father of the Hemp Movement and brings a lot to
the table with his interviews and commentary. Starting June 30th, Emi Fantasia and John Lemmon will be
broadcasting a one-hour program all in Japanese. It will air at 7:00a.m. (PST) each Monday and Wednesday.

The series, 'Clearing The Fog' hosted by Kevin Zeese is being added to the Tuesday afternoon line up at 3:00pm
(PST) each week. Kevin and I met and became friends when he and I were invited to be guest speakers at the 1991
NORML Conference. I was there because of my work as the founder of 'Time 4 Hemp' and he was there because of
his work as the Co-Founder of The Drug Policy Foundation. We've been fighting shoulder-to-shoulder in the same
foxhole on the front lines in the War On Drugs ever since.

Monthly contributions to Joint Conversations now include the beautiful artwork of Gary (Odd) Edmund. Not only can
his work be enjoyed in the comic strip he creates, but he has promised some special surprises are in store for us here
as talented as he is, I can't wait to see what more he comes up with.

Sasha has been bustin' his hump on the website updates be sure to visit Time4Hemp.com often to keep up with all
he is doing. While there, please click on the banners of our sponsors and if you have time, let Hot Box Jamaica know
you think it rocks that they have become our newest sponsor. It would also be great if you would hit the 'DONATE'
button on the home page when you visit the site and put a few dollars into this network to help us grow.

During the last four years, the citizens of Toronto Canada and those
who would travelthere have gathered in the city during May for the
Treating Yourself Expo. This show was like no other in Canada as it
featured some of the top businesses in the cannabis movement.
All the major seed companies were present whether they were from
the Netherlands or South Africa. Almost every plant food product
was represented as well as some of the major and smaller advocacy groups. In the beginning there were
comedians and bands receiving their Global Marijuana Music Awards but by year four they were gone or
moved to another time during the weekend.

It was a place where people came from countries such as Spain, Germany, Italy, United States, France,
South Africa, Holland and many other locations including all across Canada. When you think about it and
add it all together it tells you that it was an event that brought the world-wide cannabis community together.

Advocates could meet, talk and share ideas. Discuss future plans and work on ideas together. Without a
doubt the Treating Yourself Expo connected people. An event that allowed people to converse face to face
or have Joint Conversations with many advocates at once.

In the fall of 2013 Marco Renda, the owner of Treating Yourself Magazine and the Treating Yourself Expo
shut them both down. Thus, there was no more therapeutic cannabis magazine or expo which was a major
loss of valuable research and information that many used. I personal heard from many about the loss and
how something had to be done. Many wondered if the Joint Conversations that the advocates from around
the world where having in Toronto where going to go silent?
With this being a big possibility of happening it was Time 4 CHAMPS to step in. At some point CHAMPS Trade
Show, a USA based counter culture show and expo stepped in and took over. Their website says that Since
1999, CHAMPS TRADE SHOW has established itself as the premier counterculture business-to-business
wholesale trade expo for the smoke shop industry. For 14 years, CHAMPS has been a global trailblazer as
a specialty gift show for contemporary smoking accessories, hand-blown glass, clothing, and all forms of
the specialty gift market.

Knowing that a business that runs a show that had over 510 exhibitor booths encompassing 180,000
square feet of floor space and had over 36,000 new product launches on display in Las Vegas that the one
with 100 hundred booths in Toronto wouldn't be an issue.

But was the CHAMPS Canada the same as the past TY Expos? Let's say it had many many similarities but it
wasn't the same. TY Expo was a public show and one that Marco wanted to impress people with and that he
did. While CHAMPS was as it's described as a trade show for vendors. This meant the layout and what was
used was different. Gone were the fancy walls and carpet but other than being dressed differently both had
educational speakers, a vapor lounge, advocacy groups and the list could go on. In the end the message
that cannabis prohibition has to end can be the same whether the person is
dressed in a tux or in a pair of dress pants.

While I know this was the first time that CHAMPS came to Canada and from
my understanding this was the first time that CHAMPS had a show go public.
Let's just hope enough of the public showed up to have them return next year.
For me I'm happy to see that CHAMPS came to Canada and kept the Joint
Conversations going.

Cathy Jordan of Florida Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS )

I used to be a hairdresser from New Castle, DE, but now I'm a medical marijuana patient &
activist, living near Tampa, FL. I was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS
or Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 1986 (I was 36), was told by my doctor not to smoke
anything, standard advice for a new ALS patient, suffered typical deterioration of my body
over the next two years and prepared for my death ALS is a terminal illness and I
probably had only another year or two.
Then, in 1989, standing on a beach in Sarasota, FL, I was passed a joint and said Why

Cannabis (the scientific name for marijuana) works for me by drying up my saliva (ALS patients often drown in their
own fluids), helping me cough and stimulating my lungs through its bronchodilation action.
Science now shows that Cannabis is actually a neuroprotectant, treating auto-immune conditions like ALS and MS by
suppressing excito-toxicity and the over-production of glutamate. Also, Cannabis has long been known to have an
anti-inflammatory effect and inflammation is now believed to play an important role in ALS.

Brenda L. of Ohio: Breast Cancer

Eight years ago, Brenda was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was in stage I when they
found it. She underwent the lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy.
A lumpectomy is where just the tumor is removed as well as the normal breast tissue that
closely surrounds the tumor. Sentinel node refers to the first lymph node(s) that drains from
the breast tumor area (found by injecting a radioactive dye).
They shoot radiation into your breast and they follow it up to the nodes to make sure that
you don't have cancer in your lymph nodes. And I did not, so all I had to have was
radiationand hormone therapy. Because my cancer was fed by the estrogen.
Tamoxifen is used to treat certain types of breast cancer that require estrogen to grow. It's
often used following surgery and radiation. (Drugs.com can provide more information on
this line of treatment.)
That's the drug from Hell, toothe hot flashes were like a hundred times worse. I mean you just break out into a sweat
all over. For no reason. I mean 25, 30 times a day. And the radiationit was..I don't knowit was a weakening. It didn't
hurt. It was completely painless. You wonder, what are they shooting through your body? But youcan't feel it. But you
can afterwards.
Brenda still has scars from the over-spray of the radiation, now, eight years later. It burned her skin. Brenda was lucky
that she's dark skinned. After the treatment, they were surprised because they said, most of the time, the skin peels
away. But I'm part Indian. They said I did very well.
One of her breasts is bigger than the other because of the effects of the radiation.
After the radiation, it left you very drained. And, so nauseous, you didn't even want to think about food.
Brenda had heard that cannabis was good for treating the nausea following cancer therapy. So she tried it. And I could
eat my dinner.
Maintaining a consistent weight was important. The wasting that follows this kind of treatment can kill just as easily as
the cancer it's self.
Brenda underwent thirty-five days of radiation. Boom, boom, boom. That's the deliberate way the treatments went.
Then, another type of radiation. They gave me two different kinds.
If I hadn't had the cannabis to get through the nauseousness, I would have lost weight and, I don't know, who knows
what would have happened.
Cannabis gives me a lift. It doesn't lay me back or anything. I want to do things, and it gave me energy that I didn't have
at that time. I could eat. That was the important thing.
Since she smoked her cannabis, she did have some respiratory irritation, but that was minimal and could have been
remedied if she would have known about vaporizers.
Brenda also suffers from arthritis in her knee and in her hip. In addition, she has chronic pain in her feet and has had
surgery in both of them.
I get around real well. Fifty-seven and I still mow the grass. I usually smoke cannabis before I do. It kind of lessens
the pain and keeps me going.
The anti-inflammatory benefit of cannabis helps her with her arthritic pain. It takes your mind away; away from your
Brenda sums up her feelings about cannabis by saying, They should let people grow their own medicine if they want
to. And it would be so easy. So easy for somebody. Plant a little seed. Get some medicine.

The Past, Present & Future of Cannabis

A disabled United States Air Force Veteran, Michael Krawitz served from 1981 to 1986 and
was injured in an accident in Guam that was deemed in the line of duty although not in any
way combat related.
Mr. Krawitz had 13 surgeries to put him back together including some done in the Air Force and some done by the
Department of Veterans Affairs. His job title in the Air Force was Electronic Warfare Systems Technician.
In Guam he worked on avionics equipment onboard B-52s. Since his disability - separation he attended college at
Virginia Tech and although attaining a 4.0 grade point average in his Junior year of Computer Engineering he had to
leave college because of his medical disability.
Since leaving college Mr. Krawitz tried to use his time well as an advocate and in 1997 he was part of a small team of
activists that protected Virginia's longstanding medical marijuana law from being repealed. In 1998 he was able to be
part of a United Nations drug summit. He gave testimony and presented information inside the UN General Assembly
Hall on the basic right to access required medicine. In 1999 Mr. Krawitz presented testimony to the National
Academy of Science, Institute of Medicine and his story and that of a patient he advocated for were both chosen as
reference patient stories and published in the reports written.
Since 1999 MrKrawitz has been a leader in this international field of NGO drug policy work and was a key player in the
Beyond 2008 UN NGO drug summit and was responsible for submitting the grants and the arrangements for the bulk
of the US drug policy reform leadership to attend and participate in the summit which can be viewed on this website:
MrKrawitz was responsible for a bill being submitted to Virginia's Legislature in 2009, and another in 2012, reforming
Virginia's long standing medical marijuana law.
In 2010 MrKrawitz's decade long fight inside the VA for adequate access to pain management paid off with his
negotiating the first ever favorable, medical cannabis policy within the VA.
The Policy: http://www.va.gov/
Mr. Krawitz has done many TV, radio and print media interviews in his advocacy work including a spot on NBC
network news just after the release of the landmark Institute of Medicine [IOM] medical marijuana report and another
on FOX network news just after the the new VA medical cannabis policy directive went into effect. Mr. Krawitz is on
the board of advisers of Patients Out of Time, a leading medical cannabis patient advocacy organization offering
continuing medical education credits to medical professionals and has recently taken over the job of running all
aspects of Veterans For Medical Cannabis Access.

Host Message MS situation in Britain
with Steve Danks - Hemp Works

Tens of thousands of Multiple Sclerosis sufferers

could be denied drugs which can stop sufferers
screaming out in pain, under new NHS
recommendations, experts have warned.

Neurologists said the decision by the National

Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) to
reject two drugs for symptoms of MS could leave
thousands of patients suffering horrendous
pain and immobility.

New draft guidelines on the diagnosis and care of

people with MS have rejected two drugs which
have been licensed in recent years to help
sufferers experiencing spasticity and mobility

In a letter to The Telegraph, the head of the MS Society and seven leading neurologists and pain
management experts attacked the decision, criticizing the rationing body for making decisions behind
closed doors without involving those affected.

Experts accused Nice of rejecting the drugs Fampyra and

Sativex, without taking proper account of the life-
changing difference the drugs could make to up to 40,000
MS sufferers who are likely to develop mobility problems or
painful spasms.

It's just showing that legalese cannabis in the UK is going to

only be for the rich? At 345 per 5grm or $100 a grm from
GW , who's cannabis is going to be coved by health
insurance? Our government is cracking down, raids on
sick people, busting up glass and grow shops, they
determined to keep that pot cash in their pocket.

The Case for Legalizing Extracts
BY OWEN SMITH Originally Published in Cannabis Digest

In my last article I described visiting the BC Court of Appeal, and laid out some of the arguments for
and against the legal extraction of medical cannabis in Canada. As we wait for a decision on my
constitutional challenge, south of the border, in the U.S., there is a growing movement pressing for
regulations that permit medicinal cannabis extracts. At the heart of this movement, a major cultural
valve has been opened as reports from first experiments in legal cannabis regulation ripple out across
the globe.

Colorado is making waves, becoming a hub for cannabis tourists who may spend a weekend touring
cannabis farms, sampling the finest extract products, and relaxing with a medicinal massage. In
Washington state, tours are a little more reserved. Kush Tourism takes participants to see glass
blowers, trim flower buds, do some baking, and get a general education on the plant.

These states are serving as social experiments for the possibility of a new un-prohibited cannabis
culture. Without the fear of prosecution, cannabis producers and manufacturers have unprecedented
abilities to craft unique and novel products. The immediate surge in popularity of concentrated cannabis
products shows us one thing we can expect in this 21stcentury cannabis revival. The process of making
concentrated cannabis oil has been known for a long time but legalization has brought a new rigor to
the cannabis chemist.

BHO, or Butane Honey Oil, is the most common and popular method of making concentrates, popularly
known as dabs. Butane extraction introduces a toxic solvent and then attempts to remove, or purge, it
at the end. Laboratories in California fail a BHO sample if the butane level is over 500 parts per million.
For medicinal users, contamination with butane may be detrimental, even though most may already be
getting a dose if they use a butane lighter.

If done poorly or without safeguards, the risks of making a solvent extraction include slowly poisoning
yourself or blowing yourself up. Due to the growth of interest and the need for a greater understanding
to prevent these occurances, companies like Extractiontek Solutions in Denver, Colorado are building
and patenting safe and effective extraction machines.

Larger companies are using CO2 extraction to provide solvent-free cannabis oil, but the equipment
prices are prohibitive. Meanwhile, the California Police Chiefs are attempting to ban physicians from
recommending high-concentrate derivatives such as Butane Hash Oil [a chemical derivative of
marijuana that can contain 80 percent THC] to anyone in their state, because of the risk of explosion
and a perception that concentrates are the hard liquor of marijuana.

Considering that concentrates currently account for 40 percent of sales in some California
dispensaries, a law that bans extracts could be overly punitive. It would make more sense to regulate
cannabis and its concentrates under proper industry standards, and ensure oversight so that
cannabinoid extraction could be done professionally in a controlled environment.
They're clean and consistent
Extract producers are striving to ensure cannabis users have access to clean concentrates, as well as
the proper tools to safely make their own. Secret methods, like that of BudderKing, have been revealed
so that the growing numbers of interested people can emulate his techniques. I have written articles
about some of the processes The same idea of standardization is applicable to extracts, as the
medicine can be blended into a more homogenous form. Patients have reported more consistent doses
with extracts than with dried bud.<cannabisdigest.ca/concentrating-on-cannabinoids> by which
cannabinoids are extracted from the plant to remove contaminants like mold, residues, and
unnecessary plant material. Fortunately, the trichome, which stores all of the cannabinoid compounds,
is built to easily shed from the plant surface, making the job easier.

Companies like Top Shelf and Pink House, who supply extracts to dispensaries in Colorado, have the
facilities to explore and develop the extraction process in greater detail. They use tools like a sonicator
to break open the trichomes and a vortexer to stir the compounds in the solution to evenly distribute the
cannabinoids. They winterize the extraction by keeping it at very low temperatures to isolate residual
waxes that make up the shell of the resin glands. They then filter this before continuing the process.

After the filtration and removal of unwanted non-cannabinoid material, you are left with a hard glassy
substance that melts into a resinous oil. A dab of this oil is plucked by a pin and placed on a heated
plate on an often elaborate piece of glassware, sometimes called an oil rig, which resembles a bong.

Eating &Vaporizing
To obtain THCA and other compounds that are decarboxyized by the heat of the vaporizer, it is
necessary to eat them. This is often done by putting the raw leaves into a juicer. The temperature can
be adjusted to include compounds such as THC and CBD but exclude CBN, which some people find
makes them dizzy or lethargic. To obtain THCV and CBC, and avoid Benzene, it may be necessary to
make vaporized material into an edible product.
Although our knowledge of these tools and the dynamic whole plant effects of cannabis are still
developing, Ron's ingenuity and creativity represent the community spirit of the Victoria Cannabis
Buyers Club, which strives daily to provide to its members. Ron has designed colorful tesseract balls
that hang from the ceiling of the vapor lounge, informing about the properties of different cannabinoids.

Inventors continue to seek new ways of ingesting cannabis. A sublimator resembles a bong, but has a
special kind of heating device that attaches to the medicine chamber. Instead of being vaporized, the
cannabinoids are sublimated, transforming them directly from a solid to a gas. The sublimator, among
other innovations, is slated to become a part of future cannabis users' toolkits.

A culture that governments have attempted to eradicate, marginalize, and stereotype for many decades
is slowly emerging from its protective shadows. Led by a need for this plant's medicinal qualities, new
voices are merging with the chorus, calling for compassion and reason. Under the spotlight, legal
regulations are helping make breakthroughs as the stigmatization of cannabis users goes up in a puff of
smoke. The long-entrenched underground is preparing to declare victory in the war on drugs.

Our monthly analytics are ALWAYS incorrect no matter how hard we try to get them right. WHY? Media
outlets understand that if you have 100,000 tractable listeners you most likely had 50,000 or more that
were not tractable because most people listen to a program WITH one or more other people in the room.

The numbers also fail to reflect listeners at the many DIFFERENT websites that have embedded our
Spreaker player onto their homepage. Some of our programs (like THE HAPPY HEMPTRESS HOUR) also
simulcast onto AM/FM stations from the 'TIME 4 HEMP' live feed and those listeners are also not tractable.

Below are the TRACTABLE numbers that we can locate. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that they are only a small
peek of the big picture.
