Blowing Smoke?: The CNBC/High Times Medicinal Marijuana Slideshow
CNBC recently did a story on cannabis culture entitled Marijuana, Inc. Their promo site includes a very interesting slide show. Included are photos of many different strains of pot with descriptions of price and medicinal value attached. I highly recommend this piece for both complete neophytes and growers alike. The information comes from industry insider, High Times Cultivation Editor Danny Danko. I’ve never seen specific desired effects assigned to certain strains ie a local specialty is listed with a photo and this:
A Nor-Cal staple, Trainwreck is easy to grow and very powerful. Patients suffering from nausea, headaches or chronic pain call it a godsend.
1 ounce: $350-400
1 pound: $4000-4500
The high price is probably based on summer deals which are usually higher then after the fall harvest. I would love to hear others take on this piece. Is the talk about certain strains working better for different ailments realistic or is it is blowing smoke?
Hat tip to Highboltage–he has a great blog packed with snippets of info.
