    I'm happy to say that in the last months of 2016, Italy has started to sell Medical Cannabis in drugstores. It surely costs too much for now, but it's a step forward that can help research, cultural tolerance and so the total legalization process that we all dream and deserve..!

    What?
    Do you need a prescription from a doctor or a medical card?

    @Pimpslapper Well, friend... NO, sorry. But if you travel north about 1000 km you will find Amsterdam. But they call it Coffee Shop, not drugstore... ;)

    I'm a farmer. I'm starting to experiment legal EU cannabis cultivation with a strain called Carmagnola, a dioecious variety. As other EU permitted strains, it has nearly no THC (0,2%) and a content of CBD around 4%. I will grow it for many purposes, but it is also very good to vape and to chase clouds since it produces good amounts of vapor and has a nice taste. I've bought a 5kg bag, and so I have quite a lot of seeds to share if someone is interested. Only shipment costs. PM me for more info.

    edit: I don't know if this announcement is legit for FC rules :\... act in consequence.

    Sorry but I really wasn't in the mood to add more in that moment. Someone broke into one of my storages and took everything... seeds, tools... I work in a difficult area and these sabotages make my work even harder, if not impossible...
    Cutting short, no seeds for anyone at this time.

    Well... since I've been able to retrieve sufficient seeds for my project and the loss in terms of money is pretty low, let's have fun of it.
    Today part of the stolen (and not only my stuff) have been found near a wood. A very strange phenomen was happening that drew the attention of a ranger: dozens of crows of various "strains" were battling for a treasure... my bag of seeds... :argh:

    Cannabis is the revolutionary culture (funny... the word "culture" in english can be related to both cultivation and culture with learning acceptation...).
    A pretty famous man (most known for the cannabis strain I guess... oh yes... hard times...) talked extensively about the importance of this, and in my country hemp cultivation was a tradition before the oil conquest. In these days my region is suffering from a strong water poisoning... PFAS is the substance found in drinkable water: it is a waste of the industries that produce water-repellent coatings and fibers (teflon, gore-tex...) and it's VERY harmful. This kind of properties and materials can be made with hemp along with many, many other things... from building materials, to dresses, and almost anything that is made of plastic... and these are only some of the industrial uses of "legal cannabis".
    So remember... the cannabis revolution is not only battled with shots of THC & CBD... that's why I'm so happy that the crows let some seeds also for me! But sorry, not for you...

    Things that help Cannabis Culture (and the sanctification of the Holy Herb), from our swiss cousins:

    ""The new trend in Switzerland is to smoke the "light cannabis" (the legal EU cannabis with 0,2-0,4% THC) and this is driving crazy the police""
    It is called Cpure, and looks like and smells nearly like an illegal one. Police started to confiscate it to analize it... but as we know, analysis have high costs. Schools are debating the possibility to consider it as a cigarette. Police is demanding portable devices to check the quality on the fly, but for now what reign is an embarassed chaos.

    New law for "Industrial Cannabis" approved in Italy

    In short, anyone can now grow his "medical" cannabis and there's no need to declare it to the local forces anymore, and every cannabis product that comes from certified legal seeds can be produced and sold. From my point and my work the more interesting is the female unfertilized flowers, that in some strains can reach a concentration of CBD of 5%.

    What a fuck. It seems that animals LOVE cannabis, just like us!
    I've planted my 500 legal seeds about one week ago in small jars, because I knew that in open field from the start it would be a tragedy. Well today I've opened the greenhouse and there were traces of digging on most of the jars: those little bastards (rats I presume) passed through some little holes and had a party last night. They digged for the seeds that were blooming and accurately discarded shells and roots to get the sweet sprouts..!
    Luckily, I have some spare seeds but hey! Thieves, crows, rats... enough. I'm preparing an armored greenhouse and, I'm really sorry but Arnold, the Schwarz Terminator cat, is coming for you...

    I wonder if CBD and the other oils contained (also) in legal cannabis strains could have positive effects on the health of these fragile, foundamental creatures... It will need some times but I will experiment this!
