I was in absolute shock when I witnessed it. The seizure was real and the patient was a kid. He wasn’t suffering “grand mal” seizures, but they were convulsions alright, this was no joke or fake. A kid lies in bed while his brain is shooting “incoherent” electric impulses that cause the convulsions that we see. Those sparks in the brain cause all the muscles in the body to move without the patient wanting them to. Also, while that electric storm takes place in the brain, the body is trying to keep all the basic vital functions working, i.e. breathing, in order to stay alive. That’s what seizure means.

Cannabis workbook: Indoor growing XXVI

Good morning friends of Cannabis.es,

Welcome on board to resume our journey through indoor growing. This time we will start a comparison between two parallel crops, with same varieties and using white reflective layers in the grow boxes. On one of them we will use LED lighting and 2 MaxSpect R420R screens  –new model, still on trial, it needs 180 watts per screen, total 360w consumption. Creates, according to the manufacturers, a luminosity that equals 600w, but I’d say it’s more on the lines of 500w, as we saw in other chapters-, and another one of HPS 400w and Xtrasun luminaire.

This morning, while searching on the internet for an oatmeal recipe to make my children for breakfast (experts say it's good for their bones), right after the first options I came across a video called Narco Crops (Narco Cultivos, in the original Spanish), by Azucena Sánchez and Maria Degand. It is quite a beautiful little film, fresh to the point of bordering on the type of visual poetry  that reminds one of certain scenes from Tarkovski's Stalker or, more obliquely, of Peter Greenaway's Water Wrackets. The content of the video consists of a map of Mexico drawn on the bottom of what appears to be a teflon-coated container, with the silhouette well outlined in white on a dark background.

Facebook's double standards: censorship, legality, sensitivity and good taste

The other day, I posted on my Instagram account a picture of my daughter in a bikini, standing on a swing in the garden. A few hours later, the image was deleted from my profile. It seems that the folks at Instagram considered the content of the image, which simply showed the innocence of a child happily playing on a swing on a sunny summer afternoon, to be offensive or inappropriate. Recently, a friend of mine who works for the Spanish Cannabis seed bank, Buddha Seeds, was telling me how Facebook had censored a contest he had organized on social media because apparently it went against their policies or “community standards.”

Africa, the new promised land for drug traffickers

Africa has been presented to us for decades as the continent of hunger, tribal wars, lions and elephants in the savannah, diamonds and explorers. These are all small categories that try to simplify a vast territory that contains 54 countries, around a thousand million inhabitants and exceeds the 30 million square kilometers, more or less 60 times the size of Spain. Africa, after the economic meltdown in the beginnings of this century, is living a slow but unstoppable transformation thanks to neoliberal globalization. What was once a big container of slave workforce and raw material during the early stages of capitalism is now becoming an emerging market for investors and companies who can reach new potential consumers and spaces to “develop”.

One of the problems associated with cannabis consumption is known as the “amotivational syndrome”. According to some scientists, frequent consumption of cannabis can lead to a symptom picture that includes apathy, indifference towards things, loss of the spirit of improvement, lack of curiosity…
