Poor Orphan Crops...So Valuable, So Neglected | Inter Press Service

Poor Orphan Crops...So Valuable, So Neglected | Inter Press Service | Ancient Future Plants: Amaranth, Bamboo, Cannabis, & More | Scoop.it
Why? Simply because these species have been overshadowed by those in greater demand. For example, of the 30,000 edible plant species, a mere 30 are used to feed the world.

“Yet these neglected and under-utilised crops can help to increase the diversification of food production, adding new species to our diets that can result in better supply of particular nutrients, i.e. essential amino acids, fiber, proteins.”

The UN agency also notes that, in addition to diversifying nutritional intake, orphan crops provide economic and environmental benefits–farmers can grow them on their own, as part of crop rotation systems or inter-plant them with other crops, protecting and enhancing agro-biodiversity at the field level.

Sativa vs. indica: Is there really a difference? - The Cannifornian

Sativa vs. indica: Is there really a difference? - The Cannifornian | Ancient Future Plants: Amaranth, Bamboo, Cannabis, & More | Scoop.it
Sativa and indica. Even people who aren’t steeped in cannabis culture probably have heard of these classifications.

As anyone with even a working knowledge of marijuana will tell you, sativas have uplifting effects, and indicas promote full-body relaxation.

But is that actually true?

“It all depends” according to Los Angeles-based JeffThe420Chef, the mononymous edible guru who The Daily Beast called “The Julia Child of Weed.” “There’s a lot about sativa and indica that we don’t know.”

California voters legalized pot. Are psychedelic mushrooms next? - The Cannifornian

California voters legalized pot. Are psychedelic mushrooms next? - The Cannifornian | Ancient Future Plants: Amaranth, Bamboo, Cannabis, & More | Scoop.it
State voters, though, could be the first to legalize psychedelic mushrooms under a recently filed proposal from a former candidate for mayor in the Central Coast city of Marina.

Decriminalizing psilocybin-containing mushrooms for people 21 and over is a natural step after voters’ legalization of pot, said Kevin Saunders, who filed the measure.
“What I want to do is take the shackles off. I want to have an adult conversation,” he said. California voters are ready for that, he added: “Not only are the soccer moms high now, but some of them are taking mushrooms.”

Cannabis Banking Working Group Meets - California State Association of Counties

Cannabis Banking Working Group Meets - California State Association of Counties | Ancient Future Plants: Amaranth, Bamboo, Cannabis, & More | Scoop.it
The Cannabis Banking Working Group met for the first time this week, convened by California Treasurer John Chiang. The group includes representatives from local government, law enforcement, regulators, banks, taxing authorities, and the cannabis industry. The focus is on addressing the conflict between state and federal laws that limit the industry’s ability to participate in traditional banking and commerce services.

At this week’s meeting (agenda and recording available here), members heard feedback from panels representing the cannabis industry, banking institutions, and public agencies with responsibilities for tax collection on the question “what impact has the lack of banking access had on your group, organization, or industry?”

Harvest like Our Ancestors: The Resistance is Fertile - Indian Country Media Network

Harvest like Our Ancestors: The Resistance is Fertile - Indian Country Media Network | Ancient Future Plants: Amaranth, Bamboo, Cannabis, & More | Scoop.it
It’s time for the harvest. Traditionally, the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation) are hunter gatherers. For generations, our children have gotten excited when the chokecherries turn black, because that meant they were ripe for picking.

Buffaloberries and wild plums are ready when the chokecherries are. Wild strawberries and raspberries were ready a month previous, along with wild onions; prairie turnips (timpsila) were picked two months before that. The berries and plums can be eaten fresh picked, and are made into jams and jellies. Wojapi is a delicious dessert made from honey or sugar and berries, usually chokecherries. Chokecherries mixed with kidney fat and dried meat are also used to make wasna, ceremonial food. My father, who is a wild game hunter, loves pemmican. We gather first. Hunting will come in another month’s time.

Also, Big Pharma won't like this:

 

People with Medicaid coverage who live in states with medical marijuana laws are less likely to take medications commonly prescribed to treat conditions like nausea, pain, and depression, according to a new study.

 

The research, published last week in Health Affairs, looked at nine conditions and found reductions in prescriptions of medications used to treat depression (13%), nausea (17%), psychosis (12%), seizure disorders (12%), and pain (11%). There was no statistically significant difference for drugs used to treat anxiety, glaucoma, sleep disorders, and spasticity.
