We’ve all heard about some of the miraculous ways that Cannabidiol (or CBD) oil can help in the medical field. The cannabinoid has famously been linked to the alleviation of seizures and more recently has been associated with reducing anxiety and pain in patients.

CBD has some pretty amazing attributes… especially when it comes to the symptoms of a hangover. It’s known to reduce inflammation, help with chronic pain, and has shown to reduce nausea in some individuals.

While there haven’t been too many studies that look into the effects of CBD on excess alcohol consumption, a 2013 cannabis study performed on lab rats did take a look to see if CBD could alleviate alcohol’s toxic effects.

The rats were given enough alcohol that caused life-threatening seizures as a result of extreme neuro-degeneration (think killing brain cells, something that happens when we drink to excess). CBD was applied to the rat’s skin. This transdermal skin application using cannabis decreased neuro-degeneration by close to 50%. The rats that took CBD basically lost half as many brain cells as the rats that didn’t.

Mice are not men, but this study might show some promise when it comes to mitigating the effects of that hangover.

But Hangovers?

Black coffee, a greasy breakfast, and a LOT of sleep are traditional ways of “curing” a hangover, but can CBD help in this department? If so, what role can it play in helping with hangovers? Hangovers are certainly not very pleasant.

The headaches, drowsiness, dehydration, extreme fatigue, nausea, and general malaise that typically accompanies hangovers make us swear to ourselves that we’ll never drink again. But in addition to popping some ibuprofen and chugging water all day, CBD might play a role in helping hangovers subside a lot faster.

How Can CBD Oil Help With Hangovers?

If you’ve ever had a hangover, then you’re likely familiar with all the nasty side effects that typically come with it. Here are some ways that CBD oil may be able to target some of these symptoms to help you get over your hangover a lot faster.

Nausea

Nausea is often a highly unpleasant side effect of hangovers, and CBD oil has been shown to alleviate this symptom. The non-psychotropic cannabinoids interacts with serotonin receptors, and when consumed in specific doses, it has been shown to reduce both nausea and vomiting.

It can be tough to eat or drink anything when experiencing nausea, which can cause a hangover to drag out even longer. Rehydrating the body after drinking too much alcohol is important to start feeling better, but it can be tough to keep anything down when you’re feeling nauseous. With CBD oil, however, nausea can subside faster, making it easier to drink more water.

Liver Damage

CBD may also play a role in minimizing any damage done to the liver from consuming large amounts of alcohol. More specifically, studies have shown that CBD may be able to reduce the degeneration of the liver as a result of alcohol consumption in half. CBD is a potent antioxidant and neuro-protectant which can help to repair cells that alcohol consumption may have damaged.

Headaches

Anyone who’s ever had a little too much to drink knows all too well how a headache can quickly ensue. Headaches are predominantly the result of the body’s inflammatory response that is triggered as a result of too much alcohol. CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can thereby help to reduce the effects of headaches by alleviating inflammation in the body.

Impaired Motor and Cognitive Functioning

Having too much alcohol in the system can cause a person to lose motor control and cognitive function. Brain fog, blurred vision, and lack of motor control are all common side effects of drinking too much alcohol.

CBD may be able to have a positive effect on improving cognitive function after a hangover, given its association with restored cognition in several studies of impairment. That said, further studies are needed to solidify this link.

CBD Oil: A Hangover Cure?

The next time you’ve had a few too many alcoholic beverages and wake up with a hangover, you’ll certainly want to rehydrate and drink plenty of water, and maybe even take an ibuprofen or two (2). But there might be another remedy that you may want to add to your hangover cure: CBD oil.

Thanks to its medicinal properties and its ability to ward off inflammation, CBD oil could be a viable way to treat your hangover and get over your uncomfortable symptoms much faster.

4 Steps to Ensure Successful Cannabis Training

Ensure Success Of Your Cannabis Training Strategy

In today’s highly competitive cannabis industry, a highly skilled and motivated workforce is essential to meet your cannabis business goals and keep your organization ahead of the competition.

Innovative and immersive training that can engage dispensary employees and effectively address the identified gaps or upskill them are critical to the organization’s success.

To support the business in this endeavor, dispensary training teams are on a constant lookout to identify and implement new techniques and trends that will help them deliver a successful cannabis industry training strategy. Selecting the right approaches that can help employees perform better are vital for the success of your learning strategy.

Charting Your Cannabis Industry Training Strategy

As we know, a learning strategy helps define a clear roadmap to achieve the targeted learning and performance support goals for your cannabis business. It covers the actions required to meet the specified goals and has the measures to track the performance.

While the basic tenets of what a learning strategy should outline and accomplish haven’t changed over the years, the charting of the learning strategy has certainly become more complex. For instance:

There has been a rapid change in the way learners want to learn (evident in the transition of traditional eLearning to mobile learning).

You also have an added challenge of addressing the multi-generational workforce (this requires that the adopted learning strategies should resonate well with all diverse learner profiles).

This is not all; there is a wide spectrum of tools and technologies that you can pick from, but these keep changing year on year. So, which ones should you pick?

As a result, even if you have a well thought through learning strategy, many other aspects need to be taken care of so that its implementation can deliver the required results. Selecting the right eLearning trends to refine or enhance your learning strategy will certainly go a long way in helping you succeed.

Successfully Meet Your Learning Strategy

Step 1: Where Should You Start?

One of the first things you should do is to look at the last three (3) years of eLearning trends in the cannabis industry. A quick comparison will show which trends have delivered value and impact. You will also get to see which trends were talked about but didn’t pan out.

This is a great starting point for your cannabis business, as you now have a set of trends that are certainly worth your consideration.

Step 2: How To Validate The Trend?

While several trends are clearly delivering the required value, the next step is their suitability in the context of your cannabis business. For instance, within the mobile cannabis training solutions, there are two (2) flavors:

Mobile-Friendly or Adaptive Format:

These courses can be used on mobile devices, but they are not optimized for them. However, they run across the spectrum of devices learners may opt for (laptops/desktops to smartphones and tablets). The courses do not adapt dynamically to the viewable area (for instance, they would shrink in the portrait mode on a smartphone). Also, the learning interactions are aligned to laptops/desktops rather than the way learners access information on smartphones.

Mobile-First or Responsive Format:

Here, the designs are dynamic and respond to adjust to the viewable area of each device (from laptops/desktops to smartphones and tablets). The learning interactions are optimized for mobile devices.

Which of these should you opt for, or if you are currently using the adaptive format, should you look at the responsive format? The answer lies in how the content is likely to be consumed. If your users are on the move and will pick up training predominantly on the go, you should look at the responsive design.

Otherwise, the adaptive format works. The world is abuzz with microlearning; should you move your entire training to this format? Not quite; several trainings would still require the format when the granularity of the microlearning format may make the learning experience rather disruptive.

This crucial process helps you validate if your needs match the selected trend. It also helps you validate which of these trends will address your requirements optimally and must be part of your learning strategy.

Step 3: Which Trends Should Be Adopted?

Look for the following five (5) aspects to ensure the success of your cannabis business’ learning strategy:

Keep the learners engaged.
Ensure knowledge acquisition happens.
Facilitate the application of the acquired learning on the job.
The desired performance gain and Return-on-Investment (or ROI) occur.
A positive ROI on training spend is established.

Based on this compass, they identify which trends can help them achieve success and you can use these cues to determine which of the trends should be adopted or updated in your cannabis industry training strategy.

Step 4: Successful Implementation Of Training Strategy

Even if you researched and arrived at the right set of trends, you have validated their relevance in the context of your cannabis business; yet, successful implementation hinges on several other factors. Here are two (2) significant ones that have a direct bearing on successful outcomes:

Selection Of Partners:

The partners you choose (for the platform or for content development)

Even if you have existing partners, it may be a good idea to assess new partnerships that may be better aligned to your mandate.

Internal Focus On Tracking And Checkpointing:

Effective tracking and timely checkpointing of the following aspects will go a long way in a successful implementation of your learning strategy.

Accurate Training Needs Analysis (or TNA):

Piloting new initiatives and using their feedback to update or refine the learning designs.
Change management initiatives (as you adopt radically different approaches).
Focus group testing (for validation of training effectiveness and impact).
ROI determination and using the results to fine-tune the way forward.
The process of crafting a learning strategy is a tough one, and its successful implementation is even tougher. Adopting the right trends is a significant aspect that can certainly help you succeed in this endeavor.

Cannasexuality Part 2

Is there perhaps a singular, defined limit to the ingenuity humans have, and the desire for, elevating our enjoyment of necessary and commonplace functions in life? Is there lacking in the ambition of human intellect in order to push past the limits of modernity into the future, mind-shattering realm of entertainment? No, there is no limit to this. There is not a lack of drive or desire for this. Let us continue in discussing the many applications of cannabis in elevating sexual play into this second level of pleasure.

In the conversation with popular, famous options, this strain succeeds. Although less enjoyable tasting, hence the name ‘Sour Diesel’, it provides a particularly insatiable feeling. Do you seek the feeling of hot skin, intensity, and continuous intercourse? This will provide that feeling, elevating desire to no end. However, it is quite potent, so be wary of dosage.

In almost complete foil to the prior strain, there is a certain kind of cannabis strain that is specifically inclined to lower, more subtle effects to achieve a general sense of higher elevation, during actions such as foreplay. Purple Princess is a stealthy strain, that truly gives you buzz and a fascinating high after a while. This stirs about a general feeling of contentment that resonates throughout the body. It’s general scent of that of cannabis, but a faint note of fruit snacks along with it.

Have you experienced surrealism, and desire it to influence the reality around you? Atomic Northern Lights might be the particular item of your wishes, however it may be a tad unclear as to how it affects the world of sexual sensation. This certain high will add a hint of exaggeration and psychoactivity to your session, enhancing the stimulus of light and sounds. Perhaps you may like the deep end of it, and delving into the ‘trippy’ rabbit hole of intercourse? If so, this may be worth a taste.

There is a certain passion to be had in the chess game. Each piece methodically placed, each thought with careful clarity few can recall except when under the pressure of this play. Sex can operate like this, and lead to a satisfying interaction, an attractive clash for dominance. This sort of play, of the rival Switches can be quite elevated with the assistance of the Strawberry Cough. This plant is named for its extraordinary taste and aroma, resembling that of sweet berries, as well as it’s proclivity to making even the most active of users cough. It stirs about a powerful, heightened senses that usually invoke deep conversations, and erratic wild thoughts.

In all of the serious tones of intercourse, mayhaps in the dominance, may be in the sexual chess game played, or just the heavy opening of hearts, some might lose the original, fundamental reason for the popularity of sex and it’s throes. It is a fun time. Enhancing this aspect of giggly, surprising, and fun times of sex can be properly achieved through the use of Kali Dog. It provokes a sense of sociability, excited attitudes, and a massive effect of the munchies. People using this particular strain engage in food play, perhaps strawberries, chocolate, or whipped cream. The options are endless, as well as cravings for food after a dose of this strain.

And yet the possibilities remain aplenty. These are but a few more possibilities to be had with the tool of the green wave at your disposal. Use responsibly, and let your imagination run wild as you explore the elevated pleasures to be had in weed-enhanced intercourse.

The dispensary maintains a check-in area outside the shopping space for the customers. It ensures that the visitors of the dispensary are carrying the necessary paperwork and documents for a smooth transaction. In the case of States legalizing medical cannabis, the presence of at least a State ID to validate identification and a doctor’s recommendation for the prescription is deemed necessary.

To properly facilitate the process, it is significant to focus that this area is sufficiently operated. The low workforce at this point can lead to excessive delays, which the customers would not appreciate. Hence, the motive should be to cater to the requirements set for the purchase of cannabis and ensure the best possible experience for the visitors.

The entire process of showcasing relevant documents at the check-ins by the customers, enquiring about the products, and finally buying the appropriate one can take some time. Hence, it becomes imperative to arrange for the parking of vehicles.

Not only will this ensure the avoidance of traffic jams but will also help prevent the blocking of roads and nuisance for the public. However, there have been cases where the parking lots at dispensaries tend to become places for cannabis consumption. If this happens, the dispensary can even lose its license, if found out by the patrolling officers.

That means you will make $32.49 per sale!

Let’s do some simple math:

1) One of your friends purchases through your link, you make your first sale.
2) The next week, he has a party and 2 of his friends notice his new light, he shares your link with them, there’s 2 more sales.
3) A week later, those 2 friends all realize that they have 2 friends interested in new grow lights: 6 more sales.
4) This common situation occurs for, lets say, 2 months. You’ve now made 256 sales. 256 sales at $32.49 each unit is: $8,317.

So by simply helping a friend grow better marijuana and letting his chain of friends see the results, you just made $8,317. Now if you made $8,317 every two months for a whole year, that’s $50,000.

$50,000 isn’t too shabby for an extra income stream.

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.
