#467557 Scam Alert - Aussie Medicinal Seed & Don Medicinal Cannabis

Posted by MongyMan on 16 September 2015 - 08:09 AM

One word that fits this Don asshole is FRAUD.

 

I think he lives up to this name quite well what do you crew all think.????

 

regards,dingo-2008.

 

I think it should be pointed out that The Don (Langdon Brown) is not the only one out there profiting from the sick whilst claiming compassion.

The Hemp Embassy, The Wellness Clinic, Church of Ubuntu and there are many others whose oil prices are similar to and in some cases higher than The Dons prices.

IMO anyone profiting under the banner of compassion should all be named and shamed.

 

I'll be backing those who give their cannabis away or charge a small nominal charge to cover costs if it's under the banner of compassion, not the profiteers and scammers.

Well Joan, I personally think you are telling jolly big furphies... but if you have $500-600 a week to drop on the Don's oil - go for it, but I'd like it if you stop pontificating about how you are happy to pay... most of Australia doesn't have that sort of money to blow on a product of dubious effect.

#466405 Scam Alert - Aussie Medicinal Seed & Don Medicinal Cannabis

Posted by The Rose of Darkness on 25 August 2015 - 10:53 AM

I was trying to keep my nose out of this thread, but here is how things ACTUALLY work for people that make and donate medical oil.


You get a group of people and growers who have genuine, non profit motive to supply people with medical cannabis oil that are suffering.

These people you see every day, they work next to you, serve you at counters, mow your lawns... they are everybody.

They work normal jobs, pay taxes and follow every other law in this country except this one.

They take a portion of their legal, tax paid wages and pool it together as a collective to pay for a site to grow.

They pay for the capitol, the equipment, the electricity and all consumables with legitimate tax paid income.

They all share the workload and donate their time to growing and oil extraction and it is passed on to be given to across the country to those in need.


There is no illegitimate, illegal money or profit made from the production.

Every dollar paid for the production is from hard earned work of a normal paying job. These people donate their time and money to give something to those in need for 100% free.

There are no exceptions, this is strictly non profit.

The problem the government has with people like this is that financial motive has been removed from the equation, and this makes somebody very dangerous when they cannot be bought, seduced or corrupted by money.

This is what cannabis oil is all about.

Making your life about something more.

Hollywood movies mock the notion that "One person can change the world" by showing heroes that are beyond our capabilities.

This makes us feel like "Im just one person, what can I possibly do?"

One plant has the power to save a life. Save one persons life out of compassion and you will realize YOU DO have an amazing power.

Combined as growers, one plant each, we can save the lives of thousands.

Dont underestimate yourself, you are so powerful and you dont even realize it :)

Rose.

#469366 NCPIC - Where do we stand on medical cannabis?

Posted by Naycha on 19 October 2015 - 04:38 PM

...there's no gold-standard research on whole-plant, so we can't comment on its potential...there just isn’t enough evidence...

 

It would be nice if they defined what they mean by 'gold-standard'. The lack of definition makes it hard for anyone to weigh up their claim and provide evidence to back up the argument that there are peer-reviewed scientific journal articles on whole Cannabis and that imo is the 'gold-standard'.

 

Our name is the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre. This is a legacy of a less confusing time when medical cannabis wasn’t under debate.

 

It was very much under debate then and previous to that time. This is an intentionally misleading statement.

 

We don’t have any influence over the law. None at all.

 

I would argue that your organisation (due to the political motivations behind its creation and the associated affiliations) is in a unique position to have influence over the law. That this influence is not enshrined in legislation is irrelevant.

 

We provide information and education, we analyse research

 

In a biased, non-scientific fashion.

 

the dosage can’t be controlled, contaminants are unknown and you can’t be sure how much THC and CBD is in what you’re taking.

 

This is due only to the laws in our country that prohibit the general public from utilising laboratories to test their Cannabis. This is of course at a detriment to the health of the public.

 

research is so important

 

I agree. There is a plethora of scientific research in the public domain that the NCPIC refuse to acknowledge because it does not agree with their dogma.

 

 

 

Nailed it! lol

There are false conjectures needlessly thrown around in this thread by unqualified people who do not receive medicinal cannabis from Don nor do they know anything about the way his products are produced or the results from patients using his products. 

actually I am quite qualified to speak in regards to scientific issues, including "chemistry" and 'compounding' - I have the education and experience to prove it... "the Don" has a finance background.

 

I have used screen shots from the don's own Facebook page to back up my points

I have met The Don, I was unimpressed, as were many people at the Tamworth symposium the Don did everything in his power to derail the symposium to meet his agenda (imo)

 

this is all I need to know about how "the Don" produces his products,these shots are from HIS Facebook page

#459533 Scam Alert - Aussie Medicinal Seed & Don Medicinal Cannabis

Posted by Matanuska Thunder on 13 May 2015 - 12:10 PM

Looks like another medical cannabis scam is making the rounds on Facebook...

aka SCAMMER ALERT

 

“Don Medicinal Cannabis” is changing his spots and has begun to specialize in "Medical Cannabis Seeds". 

 

DO NOT trust Don Medicinal Cannabis nor Aussie Medicinal Seed Co... as they appear to be one in the same person/company.

 "the Don" has a reputation (on Facebook) for inferior products and not delivering what he promises (taking money and not sending products), he is in the medical canna business for money, zero compassion in his business plan.

 

 If by chance these two 'companies' are not both being run by "the Don", then Aussie Medicinal Seed Co is steeling photos, and that is crap/un-ethical business practice.

 

The post by Aussie Medicinal Seed Co has been taken down already, got to love a screen grab (however crappy it may be)!

 

Be smart peoples!

#457160 Ganesh Spirit in Review

Posted by louise on 14 April 2015 - 10:30 PM

I'm crap at strain reviews so the TL;DR up first...
 
This strain is fucking brilliant and you all should most definitely run out and grab a prepaid credit card and buys yourself some!!!!!!! :good:
 
 

Fast flowering indica/sativa hybrid, developed from a very stable sativa elite clone, pure and aromatic from the mountains of northern India, one of the primary centers of origin of the different varieties of cannabis.

These mountain sativas are compact and branched, Similar to the Indica, with hard and resinous buds, a good adaptation to cold. Flowering time of this mountin Sativas is much faster than most of the sativas.

We have crossed this North Indian sativa with one of our sweet and aromatic indica, getting a big vigor hybrid plant with high yield and psychoactive high. The aroma of this plant is sweet, fruity and spicy. On the palate the flavor is very intense and discovers citrus tones, fresh and anise.

During the flowering she produce very large and fully loaded buds with aromatic trichomes and shiny resin, having improved significantly with cross-pointing at the buds/leaf-ratio, flowering time, internodal distance and aroma.

Ganesh Spirit is a highly psychoactive plant, soft disruptive and well balanced; imaginative, lucid and relaxed at once.

40% Indica / 60% Sativa
Yield Indoor: 400-600 gr/m2
Yield Outdoor: 400-700 gr / plant
Flowering time Indoor: 8 weeks

THC: 18-20%; CBD: 0.8%; CBN: 0.4%
Sweet Seeds - Ganesh Spirit

 
 
Growing Ganesh Spirit well... it eats like an indica, branches like an indica, flowers like an indica, but damn, consume a little and you very quickly find out that it is not an indica. I have found it very good for managing pain, the high is both creative and motivated and I have no trouble getting through the tasks that must be performed and feel pretty good about along the way.
 
Through the vape the taste is close to divine, complex fruity flavour with an edge of licorice, even smoked the taste is something special.  It is very fast flowering but doesn't stretch very much, mine barely doubled in height during flower, so you might want to grow it to a larger size during veg than you would say for an indica dom skunk.
 
Some pics from the switch to 12/12 and the second month of flowering...

edit... added a couple of extra pics.
 
I harvested at 58 days of 12/12 due to logisitics, but having broken a branch at 45 days, I was by harvest quite aware that the buds were strong enough for my purposes.
 
I have one plant revegging as I type and I expect this strain to feature in my garden for some time to come.
 
So yeah, go get some, and thanks Sweet for making some mountain genetics available... I'm going to refill the vape again... :D

#432211 Another compassionate plea!

Posted by Oz on 12 May 2014 - 06:53 PM

He wouldn't be hard to track down at all. You already have his name and home town.

 

The truth is there are hundreds of people out there in the same position as Dan Haslan desperate for help and access to cannabis oil before their cancers kill them. I have hundreds of emails from people asking for help on where they can legally obtain cannabis oil, all of which I cannot help or direct anyone else to due to the stupid arcane profit orientated cannabis laws we live under... How ridiculous it is that a plant like cannabis is illegal which regardless of what some ignorant people believe is full of goodness for us both externally and internally.

 

The biggest tragedy in this story in my opinion is the fact that it had to affect their family and friends personally before adjusting their attitude towards cannabis, as I'm sure his father has raided and locked up plenty of cannabis growers some of which could well still be in gaol...

#416738 Global Drug Survey 2014 - includes section on your ideal cannabis!

Posted by mjbarratt on 15 November 2013 - 10:31 AM

Hello to the OzStoners community - here's an introduction to the latest GDS 2014, which has a focus on cannabis this year.

 

Drugs are a funny thing. Lots of people take them, lots of people talk about them – often not knowing much at all about what they are talking about. The media sometimes does a fantastic reporting on drug issues, other times it’s just not useful or accurate. Sometimes it’s just plain rubbish. Researchers do some interesting stuff but most of it‘s focused on the harm that drugs cause – not the pleasure they can bring to people’s lives. Global Drug Survey hopes to change that.

Collaborating with over 20 media partners and host of researchers and harm reduction networks across the world, translated into 10 languages and running with hubs in 17 countries we are about to under take the biggest survey of everyday drug use (inducing alcohol, tobacco and of course prescription medication – they are drugs to!) that the world, has ever seen.

From what would be the perfect cannabis and life after the Silk Road, to what happened when you’re caught with drugs or being drug-tested in work place; from nitrous oxide balloons and ecstasy pill testing to value for money and finding out what people do to keep themselves safe while high – this is going to be huge and relevant for people who use drugs, who drink, drop, get high, get low, gets scripts, grow their own or are just curious about the world around them.

If you are interested in drugs help us get the best information out to everyone. Our results will be published exclusively with our global media partners in March and April 2014.

Take part in Global Drug Survey 2014 at http://www.globaldru...vey.com/GDS2014

Everything is anonymous and confidential.

(GDS is headed up by Dr Adam Winstock, email adam@globaldrugsurvey.com. The survey has ethics approval. N.B. I have had a role in designing parts of the survey!)

 

AND in relation to your favourite plant: Here's what GDS is asking about it -

 

What we will ask
Cannabis remains the most commonly used illicit drug in the world and the first to have its growing to be industrialized in every country - it's probably the most profitable drug in the world. With the dominance of high potency strains, there has been little assessment of whether what people are offered is really what they want to use. Work done by GDS2013 identified high potency herbal strains as being the most popular, the most available and giving the best high but also the type most associated with memory problems and paranoia. GDS2014 is asking the consumer to rank different forms of cannabis on potency and preference and describe the perfect cannabis high and how this compares to what they experience with their currently used preparations. We will also identify how cannabis users go about trying to reduce their risks of harm and how many use it for medical reasons. We will also compare how many of them end up seeking emergency medical treatment each year (and why) compared to those who have used synthetic cannabis products which GDS2013 identified as being associated with a wide range of unwanted effects.

Why this is important
– We hope to challenge the dominance of the high potency market based on consumer feedback and provide cannabis users with the best harm reduction advice based on the experience of 10s of thousands of users across the world.

#380198 NSW parliamentary inquiry into medical cannabis - due Feb 15

Posted by mjbarratt on 06 December 2012 - 02:33 PM

I thought contributors to this part of OZStoners would be very interested in this inquiry. Here is a quote from NSW parliament media release:

On 22 November 2012, the NSW Legislative Council referred an Inquiry into the medical use of cannabis to General Purpose Standing Committee No. 4. The Committee, chaired by the Hon Sarah Mitchell MLC of The Nationals, includes representatives of the Australian Labor Party, the Greens and the Liberal Party.

The motion to refer the Inquiry to General Purpose Standing Committee No. 4 was put forward by Labor member the Hon Luke Foley MLC, and was agreed to without opposition from Council members.

The Committee Chair, Mrs Mitchell said, 'The Committee will be examining the safety and efficacy of cannabis for medical purposes as well as considering if and how cannabis should be supplied for medical use. In addition, the Inquiry will investigate the legal implications of cannabis use for medical purposes, as well as any other related issues.'

'There is a diverse collection of views held on this issue by the community, and the Committee wishes to hear from the widest possible range of stakeholders.'

Submissions are now being called for by the Committee from interested organisations and individuals. The closing date for submissions in Friday 15 February 2013.

The Committee will to hold two Sydney hearings, in March 2013. Detailed information about the dates and times of these hearings will be advertised on the Committee website following the closing date for submissions. The Committee is scheduled to report to the House by 14 May 2013.

For further information about the Inquiry, including its terms of reference, and for more on how to make a submission, please visit the Committee's website at: www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/gpsc4, or call the Committee Secretariat on (02) 9230 3081

#473827 Drug driving: One in four test positive on day six of Christmas holida

Posted by Veronicanna on 30 December 2015 - 01:51 PM

someone needs to learn basic maths

 

"More than 200 drug driving tests were performed on Monday, December 28, with 46 tests coming back positive, yet to be analysed.

The figures represent a dramatic increase on last year's numbers with 41 drug driving tests performed on the same day returning nine positive results."

 

200 tests with 46 positive = 23% (ok so there were more than 200 tests)

220 tests with 46 positive = 20.9% (220 is just a random number)

41 tests with 9 positive = 21.95%

 

so where is this "dramatic increase"?

#425396 HTCC Winning Strains

Posted by Cyclone on 27 February 2014 - 05:56 PM

High Times Cannabis Cup...

 

Where to start mate.

 

Well, firstly, I have grown several different Cannabis Cup winning strains over the last couple of years,

using a couple different hydro methods. One was an abomination, some others decent quality bud, but not what I would expect

from a HTCC winner, not close. I have also grown other non HTCC winning strains during the same grows and in others and most of them have been much better, including a random bag seed. 

I got some Super Silver Haze and White Russian last year, with it a bunch of free 'Delicious' seeds.

I'm growing the delicious seeds again this year and dropping the others because of both yield and overall quality. 

 

Now that's just growing HTCC winning strains, 

mate, I've been to the HTCC in Holland.

Nothing to see here, was an overpriced money sucker by High Times.

 

The coffee shops themselves were amazing, but the shops that had a chance of winning,

and the winner that year were giving everyone really good deals.

Like the kind of deal for weed and hash that you either lose or make no money from.

They win because they almost paid to win through a range of different promotional means,

not because they had the best weed this year. This industry is a massive global business,

yes people will spend a lot of money to make sure you smoking up their bud. 

 

 

So I respect that your trying to have a bit of fun here with the whole HTCC thing,

but you also are naive to the fact that most people don't care.

 

I too, alike you used to think these award winning strains were the holy grail of cannabis,

but through time and my own life experiences, I found that not to be so. 

 

I can't say I have grown them all, or that I grow the best bud.

But I have been all around the world including Colorado, BC, Spain, England and Holland and smoked some of the best bud,

and the best bud didn't have a cup associated with it. 

 

Good luck with it though, I'm sure you will crop some nice tasty heads that would 

be 1000 times better than the shit you get from Joe Blogs.

#391759 Baking Brownies with Decarboxylated Bubble Hash in Coconut Oil

Posted by The Hash Nibbler on 25 March 2013 - 05:46 PM

Have Been playing around with using bubble hash in edibles, and made some shit hot brownies......

 

Have worked out a good ratio of 2 tablepoons of Coconut oil to 2 grams of Bubble Hash.

For one Pack of these Brownies, I used just 2 grams of good Bubble hash....... the effects were VERY suprising.

Attached File  P1070063.JPG   284.14K   16 downloads

Oh and this mix is like a chocolate Vortex... lol

 

I recommend an eighth of the whole slab to start, effects start after 25 minutes, much quicker delivery than butter mixes.

 

We tried another 1/8th 2hours later, and ended up all munted and passed out an hour after that..... 3 seasoned smokers. lol

1/2 of 1/8th is a good buzz, which is what I'm on now and the after affects of last night still linger. :bounce:

Here's some info I'm sure most of you know, but for those that don't, Welcome to edible's.......

 

Some info from an Edibles Guru.......

 

"Ingesting marijuana and hash, aka eating it, brings very different affects compared to smoking. Veteran smokers are often floored by a standard strength edible. Why is this? What about tolerance? Why do high tolerance smokers get so high from standard edibles?

The simple answer is that smoking Cannabis creates delta-9-THC, and eating it makes 11-hydroxy-THC, which is 10x more psychoactive than delta-9-THC.
 

To get high from Cannabis we first use heat to break the "-A" off of the "THC-A" and "CBD-A". For smoking marijuana, this happens as you burn, the heat of the fire breaks the "-A" off and we get high from THC and CBD. The process of removing the "-A" group is known as decarboxylation. The "-A" is a carboxyl group (COOH). Enough nerd talk. In simple terms, you have to activate the THC before you eat it."

 

Matt Rize
Cooking Marijuana & Hash: Part 1 :signthis:



Decarboxylation: :yahoo:
The general rule for decarboxylating THC-A into THC is 90 minutes at 100 C degrees. That's the temperature of boiling water. The idea is you double boil your hash in Coconut Oil for 90 minutes,  stirring occasionally and use that  oil to cook, or even better eat without further cooking.
Use a Pot of boiling water with a bowl inside, or double boiler.

 

Baking temperatures of 200C aren't even usable as that is way too hot for THC.

Bake Brownies at 140C for 1 hour. No higher or you will start to vapourize the THC.

There is a slight taste of cannabis, but I must say, its the cleanest tasting edible i've had.

 

This is what happened, after 24 hours of Canna tripping.........

Ok, thats it, just waiting till harvest so i can make some more bubble for some baking, but get into it!

 

It's not just for Baking, theres Hot drinks, pastas, Stews, anything you can eat, you can use it in.

Just remember to keep the cooking temps under 140C and you wont Vapourize the THC ya wanna eat. :doh:

#468897 What is NCPIC for?

http://www.unharm.org/whats_ncpic_for

 


What is NCPIC for?
0468a7cf0aacedf9bc8fa6f142fa2a808ce8cba3
by Will Tregoning
99sc
on October 08, 2015

The National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre's conferenceis on right now in Melbourne. (Follow the action on #cannabisconference15) You might be wondering to yourself, how did NCPIC get started, and what is it actually for?NCPIClogo.jpg?1444280035

Well, it was 2006 and John Howard’s Commonwealth government was on the slide. Christopher Pyne was practicing for his more recent performance, bungling in the dying days of an underperforming government.

That time round he was Minister for Health and Ageing. Illegal drugs were in his crosshairs. ‘The message that the Commonwealth thinks should be sent to the community’ wasn’t being sent and he wasn't happy about it. Take cannabis, for example.

‘I don't think any state right now has a perfect set of cannabis laws,’ he said. ‘We have to treat it as an illicit drug as dangerous as heroin, amphetamines or cocaine.’

At another point he called cannabis 'a poison’ that was ‘destroying our young people.’

Accordingly, in the 2006-7 Budget, $14 million was allocated to establishing a ‘National Cannabis Control and Prevention Centre’. Budget papers explained that

‘The centre will implement Government objectives under the National Cannabis Strategy. This strategy establishes national priorities for improving community understanding of the dangers of cannabis use and for preventing and responding to the use of cannabis and associated problems.’ (you can read the press release here)

Kevin was the man in 07, and in April 2008 Health Minister Nicola Roxon cut the ribbon on what was by then renamed ‘the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre’. It was established at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre at the University of New South Wales.

Two years on, the Department of Health and Ageing asked an organization called Urbis to evaluate the performance of NCPIC.

‘The Centre is considered to be highly efficient’ they said after three months research, but ‘it is not clear why the activities conducted will make a difference.’

‘It would have been beneficial' they observed, 'for NCPIC to have undertaken further and stronger strategic planning at [the] initial stage, and then on a continuing basis.’

The consultants pointed the finger at the way the Centre had come about, explaining that

issues in relation to insufficient strategic planning are perhaps not surprising given the context in which NCPIC has come into existence and operated. The tender to run NCPIC was developed in a very short time frame… When NCPIC became fully operational… there was reportedly no strategic planning process… to reconsider whether what had been proposed in the tender was the right kind and mix of activities

Early in 2015 (when this report was not yet public) I became curious about NCPIC and via Facebook I asked them whether the Centre had been evaluated. They said it had been evaluated so I asked what objectives it was evaluated against. ‘As it was an external review,’ I was told, ‘We don't actually know.’

'Sorry, can't help you on that front,' they said when I asked for a copy of the evaluation report. It was 'being used in ongoing decision-making processes’ and so 'had not been made available yet (even to us)’.

That didn’t sound like a great situation, especially five years after the report was written. So using the Right to Know website, I made a Freedom of Information request to the Department of Health and Ageing. For your pleasure, you may now download the report yourself right here (It's called Report 1)

Let’s hope that strategic planning process gets underway soon.

#465570 Scam Alert - Aussie Medicinal Seed & Don Medicinal Cannabis

Posted by Katton on 13 August 2015 - 05:54 PM

 

There are false conjectures needlessly thrown around in this thread by unqualified people who do not receive medicinal cannabis from Don nor do they know anything about the way his products are produced or the results from patients using his products. As I am a patient using Don's medicinal cannabis oil I feel the need to set the record straight once and for all and I do speak on behalf of a number of people (with their permission) who also purchase medicinal cannabis oil from Don. Don mails his products without fail every week so delivery is consistent and dosage can be accurate to the last drop, This is important, particularly for cancer patients (my close friend is one of them). Additionally I know for a fact that Don uses professional chemists to make his products, hence why I obtain my oil from Don as the results speak for themselves - improved health. 
 
I am disgusted that a rumor mill, such as this thread may cause a sick person not to purchase Don's products (or others) leading to further ill health and possible death. Is this what you guys are all about? Preventing people becoming well with medicinal cannabis just so your egos can be thrown around perpetuating rumors for self gratification? You carry on your shoulders the possible ill health and death of people who may heal if they were to take the medicinal cannabis course of better health. You should be disgusted in yourselves. If you cannot prove your rumors then that is all they are - rumors. I can prove that I have been using Don's products and he is prompt, professional and always accommodating to those in need with special requests.

 

You must have more money than sense.

Before we had all these fancy grinders and mullers we have to day.

 

We chopped with scissors or a parsley grinder, the ones we use to get back then where mostly plastic and would brake easy or ware out after a few months use.

 

Kitchen shop in town having a sale went and had a look see and got a full stainless steel "Parsley Grinder" for $9.

 

I got it to mull up for my BHO runs :D

I found this very interesting read on another forum and thought it was too good not to share. It in no way promotes any sites or anything of the sort. Just some great info for those out there, and personally i think its great to hear storys from these kinda people, without them wanting others to fund thier retirement in some exotic island. Enjoy.
