This documentary is filled with great information for those people who are just learning about cannabis
“Using original and archival footage,”WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” presents highly convincing evidence that this forbidden herb has healing properties beyond any other plant on the planet— interacting as it does with the body’s own “endocannabinoid system” to keep us fit and disease-free. “WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the “endocannabinoids” inside us—along with any cannabinoids we ingest—fit together like a key in a lock, thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body’s healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis—and perhaps even the future of medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor, PETER COYOTE.
FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST “I recommend an excellent documentary film, ‘WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER,” by Len Richmond, which summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for cancer prevention and treatment.”- ANDREW WEIL, M.D.”
A possible one hundred and six billion dollars of new tax revenue could be generated as well as one million new jobs created by 2025 if cannabis is legalized across all 50 states of America, That’s according to new data published in New Frontier’s latest research paper on the issue, which you can get here https://newfrontierdata.com/product/us-economy-2018/
“Under the new business tax rate of 21 percent, the Trump tax cuts will come as welcome relief to cannabis business owners who already face tax hurdles because of 280E. Lower tax rates may provide cannabis business owners greater capacity to grow and create more jobs. New Frontier Data projects increased domestic and international expansion of new legal cannabis markets and $106 billion in tax revenue over an eight-year period in the U.S.,” said New Frontier Data CEO Giadha Aguirre De Carcer.
This report examines three aspects of what full legalization would look like in contrast to the current, state-by-state patchwork of legalized environments, and the anticipated impacts which full nationwide legalization would hold for the U.S. Treasury.
If full legalization occurred in all 50 states today, there would be an excess of 654,000 jobs, and would increase to 1 million jobs by 2025.
Full legalization would result in more legal businesses entering the market, more consumers participating in the legal market, and more employees on official payrolls, resulting in $3.3 billion in payroll taxes. By 2025, payroll deductions would increase to $5.3 billion.
Assuming a sales tax at the federal level was implemented at 15%, the total tax revenues from 2017–2025 would theoretically be $46 billion. This amount of revenue would be entirely new revenue to the U.S. Treasury, as there are currently no federal sales or excise taxes.
By combining the business tax revenues, the payroll withholdings based on the theoretical employment required to support the industry, and the 15% retail sales tax, one can calculate the total federal tax revenue potential of legalization: The combined total is estimated to be $105.6 billion.
The difference between the current structure and the theoretical model is a $61.6 billion increase in federal tax revenues.

If your new to the cannabis plant you may want to see how it grows from start to finish. These short videos will help you see the stages of growth in cannabis and hopefully encourage you to plant and grow your own seed
Passion Fruit is quite possibly the fruitiest cannabis strain around. It was created by crossing a Sweet Pink Grapefruit clone with Orange Bud. It is an indica/sativa hybrid strain with exceptional yields.
Passion Fruit can be grown in all growing environments taking just 8 weeks to flower indoors. If growing outdoors harvest will be in early October and will be more suited to warmer regions such as those of central and southern Europe. THC production is very high, in excess of 20% with correspondingly low levels of CBD at less than 0.5%. The overwhelming aroma and taste is, just as you would expect, clearly of passion fruit.
CBD Shark is a high CBD version of Shark Shock, itself a cross between White Widow and Skunk #1. The THC:CBD ratio of this strain is 1:1 at 6% each of these cannabinoids.
At 80% indica this is a plant for indoor and greenhouse cultivation, yields of 400 gr/m2are possible in 8 weeks of flowering but if higher yields are desired then this can be achieved by vegging. the plants for longer. In the greenhouse harvests will be in October (northern hemisphere). The predominant aroma is quite fruity but with onion and garlic back-notes. Recommended for pain relief and those suffering the effects of anxiety and inflammation.

Potcoin is, in my opinion, the cannabis industry’s very own version of bitcoin – using the blockchain technology that cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are based on. The main use of the currency has been to bypass the banks who are refusing to provide cannabis dispensaries with the same financial services that other legal businesses are accustomed to – like holding money. These policies by the big financial institutions have left cannabis businesses vulnerable to opportunist armed thieves, needing heavy security to hold the large sums of cash generated at weed shops
Potcoin, having been up against a few other cannabis themed cryptocurrencies early on in it’s life, has emerged as one of the leaders in becoming an industry standard digital payment method. The other cannabis based crypto currencies never really caught up with the spread of Potcoin and have slowly faded into the background. Potcoin has been adopted as the main cryptocurrency (or altcoin) by a vast number of cannabis industry vendors – even over more mainstream currencies like BitCoin, Dash, Etherum , Litecoin etc
Dash is seeking to do the same job for dispensaries as Potcoin so is there room for both? I’m guessing yes, with room for a few more altcoin. When you consider that most Potcoin owners are from the wider cannabis community and many businesses accept it then you can only assume it will be here to stay, albeit among others
If privacy is a concern for you – Potcoin, like other cryptocurrencies allows for you to remain anonymous when purchasing cannabis industry products and services as there is no personal details needed to own a wallet – *some websites offering wallets may require personal details* You can keep your anonymity if you need to as you can make as many different wallet addresses as you like
You can own a wallet on your computer and other devices or have an online website hold it for you…or both. Having your own wallet on your computer has some great advantages over online wallets. One being that Potcoin wallets can be moved to a portable hard drive for safe keeping. The other one is that keeping Potcoin in a wallet on your computer or other devices means your Potcoin isn’t vulnerable to being stolen or disappearing from the online wallets provided by websites who could come under attack from hackers. The other great advantage to having the Potcoin wallet running from your computer or device is that you can yield a 5% annual return on your Potcoin just by being a node on the network, which helps speed up the network and transactions, I like that part!
Here’s a brief introduction video on Potcoin, produced by PotWallet.com where you can download the PotCoin Wallet to keep on your computer or portable device or you can use one of their online wallets – Recommended if you’re a technophobe
What is Potcoin? – Digital Currency for the Cannabis Industry
“PotCoin www.Potcoin.com was designed to empower, secure and facilitate the legal cannabis community’s transactions by creating a unique crypto currency for this thriving industry. PotCoin removes the need for cash transactions and encourages buying through consumer incentives. On every level of the cannabis industry, users and supporters can entrust PotCoin to extend credibility, stability and security to this growing market” – Potwallet.com
I encourage all of the cannabis family to research the currency as well as the many other good cryptos out there. Potcoin is my first choice if my vendor accepts it as payment because I feel like it is ours – the cannabis community’s to use and value. The idea is that the more people who buy and use PotCoin the more the currency is worth and the more stable it becomes. Beware though, if you are trying to make some money through trading it remember that cryptocurrencies are volatile so can change in value very quickly. If you are taking the leap to buy and hold Potcoin for the long haul in a hope that the value increases then only gamble with a small amount of money, small enough that you won’t miss it if its lost, All currencies fluxuate in price so are a gamble, crypto is just a much bigger gamble with much bigger losses and gains to be had. Please do lots of research if your intention is to trade any crypto
