Cannasexuality Part 1

It is the goal of modern civilization’s invention for the necessities, such as food, sex, and other basic needs, to elevate the quality to the highest steps possible. Many tools have been developed from this desire for enhanced pleasure: the culinary world, toys and dolls, and otherwise. One such tool is becoming legalized further by the day, and has become today’s fastest growing industry. While cannabis is currently being explored within the realms of culinary expertise and enjoyment, there are various applications of such substances towards the realm of intercourse. Sex, intercourse, whatever the title, it is a healthy and natural action in the world we live in. How can it be enhanced in quality with the aid of the green wave?

When regarding the world of cannabis, there are a large variety of strains of which hold an entire spectrum of effects on the system, and that of the experience of sex. As with any medicine, it affects each individual differently, and may completely alter the feeling and mood of the interaction.

A strain for more peaceful intercourse, the feeling of looking into each others’ eyes and interacting gently, is commonly known as Bubblegum Kush. This certain strain is light, and provides pleasant tingling sensations, as well as a more relaxed feeling after a while. This citrusy aroma presents a more comfortable atmosphere during intercourse, and lessen the innate barriers from intimacy we people commonly employ.

Of course, more sensual and calm atmospheres are not for everyone. There are times in which subtlety is no longer an option, in which what matters is fiery energy and intensity. Perhaps the ‘Trainwreck’ strain is for you. It is a mostly cerebral high that induces a strange state of euphoria, and inhibits some amount of pain. Earthy and citrusy, this particular plant is quite useful to experimentation that may prove discomforting, such as BDSM, or otherwise.

Although, when referring to more relaxed encounters with one another, perhaps there are a fantastic amount of strains to be had. A destressing substance might be the tool that provides the ease and buzzed intimacy you seek. Granddaddy Purple is the name, a grape and berry aromatic sensation, and it boasts quite a reputation. Known as ‘green Viagra’ in some circles, the plant provides a stress-free, yet pleasure-enhanced mood.

Perhaps it is not the sensation of sex you seek, but to instead enhance the quality of the foreplay and buildup into the act itself. This might indicate a preferred strain for this use is the Jack Herer, named for a famous activist for legalization. Despite it’s honors, it is an enjoyable strain in it’s own right. It initially provides a powerful rush of adrenaline, that eventually declines into enjoyable tingling throughout the body. It provides excitement, and building tension to elevate the quality of foreplay involved in your exploits.

Within the scope of sexual sensations, there is a world that can be taken even further beyond with the aid of cannabis as a medicinal enhancement. This is, of course, experimental, kinky sex. These kinds of encounters, however, can be particularly nerve wracking to those of the more vanilla alignment. If such boundary-testing activities are your thing, consider the Jillybean strain. Mango pineapple scents serenade your loose tongue, and evokes feelings of euphoria that make that kink you’ve always sought to try seem that much sweeter.

These are not the limits of the green wave on sexual life, however. There are plenty of strains, and plenty of effects from each individual one. Luxury is merely the elevation of enjoyment. Perhaps it may be time to join the green wave, and attempt to elevate yours?

How to Grow Weed Book Review

How many of you guys have tried your hand at growing your own marijuana (legally, of course)?

How many of you have spent several hours designing a grow room, purchasing lights, fertilizers, pots, growing mediums, seeds?

Have you ever tried to sort through the wealth of marijuana growing information on the internet?

We’ve cracked the code to true wellness with the most accurate DNA test available, giving you exact details on which cannabis products will help you the most.

I must admit that one resource we are seriously lacking at Weed Smoker’s Guide is information about growing marijuana quickly and correctly.

The internet is full of so-called ‘grow guides’ that may teach you a thing or two about marijuana, but they don’t really go into the details and in-depth descriptions that one would need to have a successful marijuana harvest every time. I have scoured the internet for countless hours researching marijuana growing and all it is is a scavenger hunt to find the correct and non-conflicting information you need to grow marijuana well for your situation and the amount of space you have available. What is really ridiculous when how-to guides and books start telling you you can grow 20 pounds of marijuana in 5 foot by 5 foot closet in only a month.

Growing Elite Marijuana: The Complete Guide by Ryan Riley is a complete source for growing beautiful buds of medicinal marijuana. It is authored by Ryan Riley, a medical marijuana connoisseur, grower and teacher. He has spent several years learning how to grow potent medical marijuana plants from the best of the best in the medical marijuana industry.

First Impressions

When first cracking open Growing Elite Marijuana, I was immediately surprised by the amount of the information piled into this eBook. It has information for the absolute beginner marijuana grower and smoker as well as containing lots of advanced growing techniques and methods for the experienced marijuana grower. I must admit though, the book tops out at around 720 pages, which certainly isn’t something I had expected from a marijuana growing book, it is hands down the biggest, most comprehensive guide out there that has a lot of time put into it. Most of the books and guides I have seen for growing marijuana range from 10 pages to 300 pages. At first, it was troubling for me as I was trying to wrap my head around what exactly was in this book to make it be so long. Honestly, everything anyone would absolutely need to know is in Growing Elite Marijuana. It takes just about every concept related to the cultivation and growing of cannabis and explains it in an easy to read and easy to understand format so anyone can do it.

Content

Growing Elite Marijuana is full of good, high quality content that anybody just starting out will appreciate as well as tons of advanced growing techniques for those marijuana growers that have been around the block and already have a few harvests under their belt. The book is divided into 12 specific chapters, each one covering a specific area of marijuana growing: Marijuana Basics, Cannabis, Lighting, Growing Marijuana, Growing With Soil, Cloning, Hydroponics, Your Grow Area, Growing Outdoors, Cannabis Maintenance, Harvest, and Advanced Growing. Each chapter is then sub divided into separate sections covering a specific topic. For example, Lighting has the follow sections: The Lighting System, Light Sources, High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lighting, Lighting Your Plants, Electricity, Electrical Safety, Lighting Schedule. As you can tell from the titles of the sections, Ryan Riley goes into great detail about all aspects of lighting for marijuana growing.

The last chapter in the book includes several advanced techniques that are quite important to an advanced or a commercial grower. It features sections relating to marijuana genetics, breeding, strain creation as well as providing CO2 for better yields and eliminating odors. One thing I particularly like about these advanced sections is that just because they are for advanced growing techniques they are not explained using advanced terminology and abstract ideas. Just about anybody can pick up this book and head over to the advanced growing section and understand what is being explained.

Conclusion

There was one downside that I think would be pretty easy to include in the eBook. You cannot navigate to the topics/chapters listed in the Table of Contents by simply clicking on them. Instead you have to actually navigate to that page number and there is no PDF built-in table of contents that would solve that problem also. I don’t know if this is for compatibility reasons or what, but it would be much easier to be able to navigate the book through the table of contents instead of having to search for the page number of the chapter you want to go to.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Growing Elite Marijuana: The Complete Guide by Ryan Riley is as in-depth as it needs to be in an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand format for learning how to grow your own weed. The sheer volume of pages in the book may scare some of you, but it includes everything you would need to know and would need on hand to start a marijuana grow from seed to harvest. It sure beats scouring forums on the internet for that little bit of information or any clarification you need. Head on over to grab your copy of Growing Elite Marijuana: The Complete Guide. If you’re unsure about purchasing this book and have any questions or concerns feel free to ask and we will be happy to answer them.

4 Methods For Cannabis Learning & Design

Generally, Learning and Development (or L&D) professionals ask themselves the question when developing training for the cannabis industry: “How can I deliver services as quickly as possible in accordance with the wishes of the customer?” On the other hand, others ask a more fundamental question: “Does the service actually work?

To determine the effectiveness of any service, the L&D professional looks for scientific evidence. Scientific evidence will help decision-making about learning services. The question is, is this evidence-based or evidence-informed?

Evidence-Based Medicine

For physicians, evidence-based medicine in the cannabis industry is the norm and can be described as striving to base diagnosis and treatment on scientific research. Guidelines and protocols for diagnosis and treatment exist on the basis of evidence-based medicine.

This increases the quality of diagnostics and treatment and supports the culture to improve existing practice, guidelines and protocols. It also helps to renew each of these based on new scientific research. Evidence-based research is also used by doctors to develop a better do-not-do list.

Under the motto: “if it does not help, it will harm,” for example, the university medical centers in the Netherlands are working together to build this list of 1,300 pointless medical procedures for the time being. Similar programs are running in the US and other countries.

The better do-not-do list supports physicians in making informed choices about implementation or omitting diagnostics and therapy. Doing nothing is certainly an option if it is scientifically proven that a certain treatment does not work or is even harmful.

The better do-not-do list is good for the patient and the doctors and is cost-effective. Nurses have developed similar initiatives. Yes, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Medicine has been working with evidence-based processes and work for more than 100 years.

There is much to learn for educational science for the cannabis industry from the approaches medical science has been taking for many years. For example, in medical science, despite the lively debate, the principle of evidence-based medicine is not under discussion.

There are, however, questions about how to improve scientific research for the cannabis industry, how to guarantee the autonomy of doctors, how to guarantee patient participation and so on. Moreover, there is still a lot of work to be done, because around half of current diagnosis and treatment is not (yet) evidence-based.

Evidence-Informed Educational Science

It is difficult to compare educational science with medicine in terms of the disciplines and possibilities for scientific research in the cannabis industry. Tougher scientific research is the norm in medical practice. An example of this is the randomized controlled trial method with quantitative outcomes.

Educational science is a social science and measuring effects are more difficult due to changing circumstances and studies that cannot be repeated (under comparable, controlled conditions). In evidence-based research, processes are more rigorous and outcomes more distinct. It is also possible to use treatment guidelines and protocols for better outcomes.

Restraint is important in educational sciences because the research is less rigorous. That is why the medical community talks about ‘evidence-informed’ research. This refers to scientific research in educational sciences as the basis for decision-making about the effectiveness of learning solutions.

Evidence-based’ provides fairly hard results so that doctors can use research to develop with guidelines for care provision. ‘Evidence-informed’ is less hard, but still very useful with a higher chance of success if applied, the importance of evidence-informed work as follows:

Use the evidence in the cannabis industry to increase your knowledge and expertise so that you can have conversations with clients or partners, parents and colleague teachers, directors or school principals/headmasters, and so further on WHY you recommend certain design decisions.

It will improve your expertise, our value in cannabis organizations, and, the most important our designs so that our learners can learn more effectively, efficiently, and enjoyable! In the cannabis industry learning world, there is a practice that leading professionals contribute and actively recommend evidence-informed work.

How To Promote Evidence-Informed Working?

It is no exaggeration to state that the practice of corporate learning (or L&D) is still far removed from consistent evidence-informed research and work.

Take, for example, the persistent myth about learning styles that have existed for many decades. Scientifically, there is no evidence that people learn better when the instruction is tailored to someone’s learning preference or style.

Nevertheless, in many countries, 80 – 95% of education professionals and people, in general, believe that learning styles matter to educators. It seems difficult for scientific evidence to penetrate into L&D practices. In this case, despite the many articles and tweets from scientists and L&D professionals that learning styles are not effective.

In addition to learning styles, there are more myths in education that are relevant to L&D professionals. Two (2) more examples are:

  • Self-discovery learning (insufficient evidence) versus direct instruction (lots of evidence).
  • People remember 10% of what they read (no evidence of the percentages and misuse of experience).

More information about myths is available to promote evidence-informed working within L&D. As is often the case in evidence-informed work, it is clear that being accepted practice is not the same as being right. Below are four recommendations to promote evidence-informed L&D practice.

 

1. Unlocking Research And Identifying Myths

The proceeds of scientific research in the cannabis industry are not always accessible to L&D professionals in practice. This has to do with pressure, focus (work in progress), background knowledge and the often-inaccessible nature of research studies.

That is why it is to be welcomed that more and more books, articles and blogs are being published to make the academic knowledge of educational sciences accessible to a larger audience. People put a lot of effort into making academic knowledge available for L&D practice.

Signaling of myths often goes on through social media (TwitterLinkedIn, etc.) The nature of the messages varies greatly. Signaling can easily be done by pointing out to people that, for example, learning styles are not effective or that direct instruction works better than self-discovery learning.

In fact, the signaling function is intended to support people to work in a more evidence-informed way. This is not always reflected in the tone of social media expressions. Tweets and other messages are occasionally characterized by frustration, cynicism, irritation or personal attacks.

This is dysfunctional and does not fit with the principles of educational sciences, where development is core business – and this applies not least to the development of evidence-informed L&D practice.

 

2. Integrate Into Education

The L&D function in organizations can be found throughout the world. As a result, there are different systems of cannabis industry training in every country and continent that qualify people to work as a trainer, coach, educationalist, educational technologist, learning data analyst and so on.

The field of study of training is broad and diverse. Moreover, the large multinationals particularly employ not only people professionally qualified in L&D roles to develop formal educational services. This makes the challenge of working in evidence-informed ways even greater.

Nevertheless, it is crucial to integrate evidence-informed work into educational qualifications for L&D professionals. This is an important task and responsibility at the national level.

 

3. Implement And De-Implement In Practice

Collaboration is required to bring evidence-informed educational sciences to L&D practice. This can be done by giving scientists, professional associations, policymakers, managers and L&D professionals their own role and responsibility in initiatives such as the following:

  • Policy and practical promotion that evidence-informed working is the new standard for L&D practice.
  • Developing a database (copy from the doctors) with an overview of the evidence-informed learning solutions to support L&D professionals in practice.
  • Give L&D professionals access to online databases of scientific publications.
  • Pay attention to de-implementation through a better do-not-do list drawn up to reduce inappropriate learning solutions. Work smarter by copying by doctors and nurses.

 

4. Work Together With Other Scientific Disciplines

Learning in organizations is not limited to educational sciences. Professionals do not only learn in an educational setting but also by working (together).

Learning is also not limited to individuals. Organizations (teams and individuals) also learn and that affects disciplines such as knowledge management, economics, and organizational development.

Evidence-informed working can benefit from the output of scientific research in other disciplines. The proponents of evidence-informed educational science form the basis for the further professionalization of our cannabis industry. That is also necessary because there is still a world to be gained with regard to the quality of designing, implementing and evaluating learning solutions.

To this end, it is necessary to join forces and to support L&D practice through a coherent set of measures to make evidence-informed working the new standard. This goes further than merely signaling that L&D is not yet working well, or not sufficiently evidence-informed.

This is a responsibility for everyone who wants to contribute to a golden future for L&D in organizations.
