Pot Illuminati Temple Indiegogo Launched

Cannabis and enlightenment Legalization of the world’s most valuable medicine is sweeping the nation, and that’s a very good thing.

The Rick Simpson Protocol by Jindrich Bayer

I always suggest to patients that they should ingest the oil by mouth for internal conditions, or to just bring their bodies back to a state of good health. After a few decades of being exposed to toxins in our dayto-day lives, even those who think of themselves as being healthy should consider ingesting a full 60g treatment to detoxify their bodies before these substances can cause problems with their health. To treat many illnesses such as hemorrhoids or bowel cancer etc., it may be best to use the oil in the form of a suppository. Most...

The Case for Stronger Medibles by Steven Hager

Did you notice right after Abakus announced the Munchie Cup in Aspen, the New York Times published a reefer madness story saying the medibles in Colorado are too strong, all based around a famished reporter eating an entire medible candy bar on an empty stomach? Consequently, the medible industry was thrown into a fake crisis, and several companies started reducing active ingredient levels in products, a great tragedy, while state regulators discouraged bite-sized products containing the maximum 100 milligram dose. In fact, people with...

Remembering Hunter, by Paul Krassner

When Hunter Thompson’s first book, Hell’s Angels, was published in January 1967, I assigned him to write for The Realist a behind-the-scenes article about his promotional tour. He was broke, so I paid him $200 in advance, and I offered to send him some LSD if it would help. He replied, “You can send me some acid to help me level out. And I’ll send you a dozen just-born marijuana weeds. You can plant them in Central Park.” On a visit to New York in February, Hunter arranged for me to meet him and his copy editor, Margaret Harrell — an...

GEt mE SomE Pot by Ken Babbs

Running Magazine, based in Eugene, Oregon, sent Hunter Thompson to Honolulu to cover the Honolulu Marathon. They put him up in a fourstar hotel, paid all his expenses and waited for the story. And waited for the story. Finally, panicked, for the deadline was near, they flew him to Eugene and put him up in a motel and wouldn’t let him out until the story was done. They were dealing with a force of nature and not necessarily a benign force. The days passed, Hunter stared at the typewriter, paced the floor, tried to open the drapes, look out the...

Conversation with Paul Stanford

Posted by on Nov 11, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Conversation with Paul Stanford

Few activists have been involved with cannabis legalization longer than Paul Stanford, who worked with Jack Herer and Gatewood Galbraith in the early days of the hemp movement. After Oregon installed one of the most enlightened medical marijuana laws in the country, Stanford created a multimillion dollar company servicing the medical community, one that has recently gone public. Stanford stopped by the New York offices of Abakus and was impressed enough with our debut issue that he agreed to become publisher. He also spoke about his close...
