Top 5 Marijuana Cryptocurrencies

The fight to legalize pot is gaining ground. As of November 2020, medical marijuana is legal in 36 states and D.C, while 15 states and D.C. have legalized recreational usage. These numbers are expected to grow as more states explore ways to decriminalize the plant. Keep in mind, though, that marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, which makes it complicated for anyone conducting financial transactions even in states where pot is legal.

Businesses and operators selling and/or distributing recreational and medical pot are still barred from using banks for their transactions because of federal legislation. The development and use of marijuana-specific virtual currencies have ramped up in order to fill the hole in this market. Cryptocurrencies make it easy for people in the marijuana industry—or simply those who want to buy some weed—to carry out transactions. While Bitcoin has become widely popular in the virtual currency space, there are a few alternative cryptocurrencies catering specifically to the pot sector. Read on to find out more about the top five cryptocurrencies on the market.

Key Takeaways

  • Although marijuana is legal in many states, the federal government hasn’t decriminalized the drug.
  • Pot-based operators and consumers can use marijuana-specific cryptocurrencies for their transactions since banks cannot legally conduct pot-related business.
  • Popular marijuana-based cryptocurrencies include PotCoin, CannabisCoin, DopeCoin, HempCoin, and CannaCoin.

PotCoin (POT)

Launched in January 2014, PotCoin was one of the earliest cryptocurrencies for the marijuana industry. It was designed to solve banking problems for people looking to transact in legal marijuana. Trading of Potcoin takes place directly between people without using a bank or clearinghouse. Its creators wanted to capitalize on Colorado’s legalization of marijuana and even installed a PotCoin automated teller machine (ATM) at a marijuana dispensary in Colorado.

But the currency failed to make a huge mark, remaining in the shadows until June 12, 2017. A press release and a video of NBA star Dennis Rodman sporting a potcoin.com shirt in North Korea gave PotCoin a shot in the arm. By funding Rodman’s trip, not only did PotCoin re-enter the media spotlight, but its value also shot up 76% in just one day, according to Coinmarketcap.com. As of November 2020, its market cap was close to $1.5 million—a big jump from $81,547 in February 2014. One PotCoin was worth $0.006564 on Nov. 9, 2020. The coin was up about 21% year-to-date.

The supply of PotCoin is limited with, you guessed it, 420 million coins. More than 224 million are in circulation. It trades on three markets and also transitioned to proof-of-stake, which allows people to mine or validate block transactions according to the number of coins they hold. An important caveat is that PotCoin claims transaction speeds of 40 seconds, which are pretty impressive compared to those for Bitcoin.

The cryptocurrency announced some new features at the beginning of 2019 including HD Wallets, a reduction in synch times, promising a faster network synchronization to help boost the user’s experience.

CannabisCoin (CANN)

CannabisCoin was also developed in 2014, just a few months after PotCoin. It is a proof-of-work, peer-to-peer open-source currency and, like Potcoin, was aimed at easing transactions for medical marijuana dispensaries. While it initially gained popularity, it has failed to deliver for investors.

So how does it work? CannabisCoin promises to convert cryptocurrency directly into marijuana. Under the name CANNdy, there is a line of medicines and marijuana strains grown for the specific purpose of exchange at the rate of 1 CannabisCoin to 1 gram of medication.

Marijuana-specific cryptocurrencies also use virtual wallets to hold and store coins, just like regular cryptocurrencies.

The total supply of CannabisCoin is set at 91.8 million, with over 77 million in circulation. The currency’s market cap was $366,005 as of November 2020, according to coinmarketcap.com.

DopeCoin (DOPE)

DopeCoin was founded by Adam Howell—also known as Dopey—in February 2014. Little is known about the specific markets the currency serves except that its “mission is to provide marijuana enthusiasts with a modern and secure way of doing business for the 21st century.”

According to its website, DopeCoin users can transact pseudo-anonymously in under a minute, and don’t pay any fees or transaction costs.

Started with a vision of creating a Silk Road for transactions in marijuana across the world, DopeCoin supply is limited with about 117 million in circulation. It is also a proof-of-stake currency, giving investors a chance to earn 5% in annual interest. The currency has a market cap of close to $250,074 as of November 2020, according to coinmarketcap.com.

HempCoin (THC)

HempCoin also came into existence in 2014, although its focus is less on individuals using it to buy weed. Instead, this cryptocurrency was designed for use by the farming industry and medical/recreational dispensaries. HempCoin’s website claims it can be used to “facilitate transactions between marijuana farmers and the local dispensary shops” as well as purchasing gear and tools used to farm marijuana.

It’s interesting to note that HempCoin is used in all areas of agriculture, not limited to ones involving weed. As of November 2020, the price for one HempCoin was $0.004770, and its market cap was $1,235,775 million.

CannaCoin (CCN)

CannaCoin runs on a decentralized blockchain using Peer2Peer tech. The currency was developed in 2014 but transitioned to proof-of-stake at block 370,000. Cannacoin, as described by its founders is a “group of cannabis enthusiasts working towards the future development of cryptocurrency applications related to cannabis production, seed production, extract production, glass blowing facilities, vape and dab station manufacturing, crypto development, and more”

As of November 2020, CannaCoin has a price of $0.000081 and a market cap of $130,958. There’s a circulating supply of 1.6 billion CannaCoins.

Marijuana focused cryptocurrencies have taken on a life of their own with currencies like Potcoin and Dopecoin. Learn more about these cryptocurrencies, and how they're trading.

blueberry snow strain

Blueberry

A true A-List cannabis strain, Blueberry’s legendary status soared to new heights after claiming the High Times’ Cannabis Cup 2000 for Best Indica. The long history of the strain goes back to the late 1970s when American breeder DJ Short was working with a variety of exotic landrace strains. However, throughout the decades of Blueberry’s cultivation, the genetics have been passed around, due in large part to DJ Short working with multiple seed banks and breeders. The sweet flavors of fresh blueberries combine with relaxing effects to produce a long-lasting sense of euphoria. Many consumers utilize Blueberry to help contend with pain and stress, while connoisseurs and growers admire the strain for its colorful hues and high THC content.

About Emerald Triangle

Emerald Triangle Seeds are so named after the region in northern California comprising of Humboldt, Trinity and Mendocino counties. In the early 70’s and 80’s, a growing number of city dwellers decided to move to northern California into these areas to develop communes, homesteads and other alternative lifestyle communities that broke away from the norms of society. This new found lifestyle was influenced greatly by the use of cannabis. Geographically, it happens to be one of the most optimal places in the world to grow cannabis. This region is special as it falls under the same parallel as where cannabis originates from, in the middle-east. With all that in mind it has allowed many different aspects of worldwide genetics to settle here, furthering their development.

Emerald Triangle Seeds are a group of seven breeders from the aforementioned famous area of California. They have over two decades of cultivation experience between them.

A relatively new seedbanks, Emerald Triangle aim to bring quality and stability to every strain. Their passion is focused on providing meticulous care and quality for their strains and to ensure genetic stability through nature. This means that they refuse to discount the role of a male chromosome in their breeding techniques and gene pool. Emerald Triangle state that they are aware of the fact that 80% of the European market is feminised, so don’t disregard it completely. However, the seedbank stand by the fact that regular breeding maintains long term stability, and that’s what you can expect from Emerald Triangle Seeds.

The strains in Emerald Triangle’s comprehensive library are not just from California. In fact, they have put a lot of energy into collecting quality genetics from all over the globe.

Emerald Triangle Seeds are trying to carry the torch for their generation to preserve and improve the quality of genetics, so that in the future, people will have the same access to the healing and medicinal properties that cannabis has to offer.

betty crocker weed brownies

Marijuana Brownies: The Best Way To Make Them

by Robert Sietsema

For its batch of oil, this was the correct size brownie for maximum enjoyability.

Few drugs are as rewarding as cannabis cooked up in brownies. You’ve got the rich brownie itself as a fitting sendoff, then a half-hour to an hour-and-a-half later, the thing descends on you like a ton of feathers, pouncing rather than creeping. The time discrepancy is the result of whether your stomach is empty or full when you eat the thing, and the rate of your metabolism, too. Either way, the effect is far more visceral than smoking weed, you feel it in your body even more than in your cranium. And as the brownie descends your alimentary tract, it has a slightly differing impact at every stage. The effects last longer, and you can expect to be intoxicated for four hours or more.

My method results in cheap brownies, but it’s a giant mess.

There are a lot of myths going around about how to make brownies. As a trained chemist, I believe I’ve come up with the best method. I’ve written it down in narrative form for the special recipe I use, but there’s a quicker version at the end of this post that may be more in keeping with your inclinations and your supply of combustible intoxicants, as I call them.

The saint of the cannabis brownie is Alice B. Toklas, Getrude Stein’s main squeeze. Her method actually involved macerating the pot with dried fruits and eating it raw. While this may have been effective, cooking the weed is more so. And her method must have resulted in horrible gas.

I’ve heard gastro-hippies go on and on about how you’ve got to take butter and poach the pot in it for many hours or even days at low temperature. This is total bullshit. In my experience, all the active THC is extracted from the plant in 15 minutes or so. I’ve heard others go to great lengths to buy French chocolate and make the brownies from scratch. This is also bullshit. What people really want is a boxed brownie mix, a familiar flavor modified in a positive way by the exotic taste of the oil.

Years ago, like you, I used expensive bud to make brownies. This is a mistake, but often an unavoidable one. A friend from Pratt had a boyfriend who was a grower in eastern Pennsylvania. She convinced him to give us the unsalable outer leaves of his plants at a steep discount. The discount was also because the leaves had already been used to make “bubble hash,” a locally produced soft hash that’s made by washing the marijuana in an actual washing machine to mechanically remove the THC crystals (THC doesn’t dissolve in water). The rinse water is saved and evaporated and Voila! – bubble hash.

For the boiling step, a wok was hilariously pressed into service.

The finished product, waiting to be cut up into the appropriate size pieces

For $100 on that first occasion, we got about 15 pounds of the outer leaves post-washing machine, packed in two plastic garbage bags. It was still sopping – about half of the weight was water, we estimated. But that much pot was far more than we needed.

As a first triage step, we simply grabbed big wads of weed and wrung it out, discarding the brown water. Remember that the THC we wanted was actually in the leaves. We then took about a pound of wrung leaves and put them in three big pans along with 64 ounces of the cheapest corn oil product we could find.

You’ll need spatter screens for the next step, because there’s still plenty of moisture in the leaves. Put the plants in at room temp, pour in the oil, and gradually bring the pot to a boil. Let it bubble for 30 minutes, which is when most of the water will be evaporated. Boil longer if need be to evacuate the water, but at this point maximum THC will be extracted. Further heating will not denature it, in my experience.

Merge the oil from the three pots, filtering it through coffee filters into a big jar or jars. At this point it is ready to use.

Buy a box of brownies (I prefer Betty Crocker) and make them in a 9 X 14 pan using the oil. Use the maximum number of eggs specified in the recipe on the box. Cut the pan into 24 brownies of equal volume.

Betty Crocker is The Man!

Cut the brownies to the desired size and store them in the freezer in an air-tight container. Gosh they taste good frozen!

Now here is the most important step. You are the guinea pig. Eat as much of one brownie as you dare, and wait two hours. This should give you a good idea of how strong the baked goods are. You are now prepared to specify the dosage: one-half brownie, one brownie, one-and-one half brownies, and two brownies being the most common dosages.

You now know just how potent your THC oil is, and can behave accordingly, making perfect dosage brownies every time.

You can use the same method with any other form of marijuana, and with retail bud, too. If the latter, I’d begin with a quarter ounce, and boil it in 24 ounces of oil for 10 minutes. Make a batch of brownies, which usually require around 6 ounces of oil. You can then make five futher batches with the same potency. I’m betting, if you have good pot, you’ll find that a half brownie is plenty.

legal alternatives to weed

There’s A ‘Legal High’ You Can Buy Online, And It Isn’t Cannabis

Tweet This

A recent study by a group of scientists in Bern, Switzerland examining a cannabinoid extracted from a rare moss-like plant–a member of the liverwort family–growing only in Japan, New Zealand, and Costa Rica has revealed potentially useful properties that may be valuable for people suffering with inflammation and chronic pain.

Liverwort (Radula perrottetii)

University of Bern/Stefan Fischer

What’s even more interesting is that this moss is distantly related to a plant we are quite familiar with–Cannabis Sativa which has more recently emerged as a potential approach for treating seizures, multiple sclerosis, inflammation, and many chronic medical conditions.

Thus far, the researchers do not understand why this specific liverwort–which has a different way of living and reproducing compared with Cannabis—would harbor a compound so similar to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component found in marijuana. (It was previously believed that the only plant that produces THC was Cannabis Sativa.)

What they do realize is that the cannabinoid isolated from this liverwort, and THC found in Cannabis are chemically similar , but also produce quite similar effects in the brains of mammals.

President-Elect Biden Names New Covid-19 Task Force – What’s The Enthusiasm About?

CVS CEO: Pharmacies Ready To Distribute Covid-19 Vaccines Once Approved

The study was recently published in the Journal, Science Advances.

PET was first described in 1994 by the Japanese phytochemist, Yoshinori Asakawa. But it wasn’t until Jürg Gertsch from the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the University of Bern, evaluated the similarity of this compound in structure and activity to THC in the brains of mammals that the significance became more relevant.

Several years ago, Gertsch noticed that liverworts were being promoted online as “legal highs”, used by recreational and medicinal users in Switzerland, New Zealand, as well as other areas of the world. But no research had been done to evaluate the pharmacological properties of the cannabinoids contained in the plant. Gertsch joined forces with his colleague, Erick Carreira, from the Department of Chemistry at the ETH Zürich, and proceeded to compare THC and PET.

Using an animal model (mice), the team demonstrated that PET reaches the brain relatively easily, but activates cannabinoid receptors– CB1 and CB2 receptors–to a much weaker degree compared with THC. As a result, a key difference between the two compounds is that PET is much less psychoactive compared with THC, making it more attractive for medicinal as opposed to recreational purposes. But PET’s more potent anti-inflammatory effects, compared with THC, based on initial studies, certainly became a point of further interest.

Gertsch believes that PET’s more robust anti-inflammatory effect in the brain compared with THC, makes it noteworthy, especially if you consider its potential medical applications.

“It’s astonishing that only two species of plants, separated by 300 million years of evolution, produce psychoactive cannabinoids,” said Gertsch in a press release.

And it turns out that the Maori people, indigenous to New Zealand, have utilized the liverwort plant for centuries as a traditional medicine for treating abnormalities of the liver or digestive issues.

“The work of Jürg Gertsch and colleagues is a prominent advance in understanding the role of plants beyond cannabis on the endocannabinoid system,” said Ethan Russo M.D., a neurologist, and Director of Research and Development for International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute (ICCI). “Perrottetinene from the liverwort, Radula marginata, has proven to stimulate weakly the CB1 receptor where THC and the endocannabinoids, anandamide (ANA) and 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG) also bind.

“Although this activity was proven via positive effects on the mouse tetrad of hypothermia (lowered temperature), catalepsy (frozen behavior), hypolocomotion (decreased movement) and analgesia (pain reduction), and was demonstrated to enter the brain, it is unlikely to become a major target of recreation users because of its relatively low potency and especially since liverworts are very slow growing and difficult to cultivate.” added Russo.

Russo also explained that “perrottetinene differs from THC in a key way that makes it potentially useful medically, in that it reduces levels of prostaglandins D2 and E2 in the brain without producing COX inhibition, and thus may provide an effective anti-inflammatory and pain killer with a low risk of intoxication, formation of ulcers, or production of heart attacks or strokes.

Russo explained that this finding should prompt additional biochemical prospecting in other liverwort species in this frequently overlooked group of “primitive” plants.

Jeffrey C. Raber, Ph.D., a chemist with expertise in cannabinoid physiology and CEO of The Werc Shop, an independent testing laboratory in Southern California, also sees the potential upside of perrottetinene from a clinical standpoint as well, but realizes that cultivating and extraction of the compound may be challenging, but could be overcome with creativity and ingenuity.

“The stereochemistry of this compound suggests it may possess interesting clinical potential with minimized psychoactive side effect,” explained Raber. “Obtaining significant quantities of pure compound may be challenging initially, but viable natural based or synthetic routes may both be developed should it prove of interest to do so.”

PET less psychoactive compared with THC

It’s well known that low doses of THC may offer therapeutic potential when it comes to treating various chronic illnesses. But THC is limited from a therapeutic standpoint due to a strong psychoactive effect at higher doses, other than being illegal at this time.

As previously mentioned, in contrast to THC, PET inhibits the production of inflammatory prostaglandins in the brain. As a result, PET likely has an effect on cannabinoid receptors which interact with our endogenous endocannabinoids. Certainly more preclinical studies of various models of chronic and inflammatory pain will be necessary to better understand its role in this setting.

To obtain adequate amounts of PET from the liverwort plant, Gertsch collaborated with his colleague, Erick Carreira, whose team developed a new synthetic way to preserve the 3-D structure of the compound on a molecular level.

“The present study is a prime example of how new synthetic concepts can make a contribution towards enriching our pharmacological knowledge of biologically-active natural substances”, said Michael Schafroth, PhD, who studied and worked under the direction of Dr. Carreira, in a press release.

“Both solid fundamental research in the field of biochemical and pharmacological mechanisms as well as controlled clinical studies are required to carry out cannabinoid research”, added Gertsch.

With recent legalization of Cannabis in Canada helping to support ongoing support for research and patient interest in using combinations of CBD and THC to treat common conditions such as endometriosis, fibromyalgia and IBS, it’s becoming more apparent that the endocannabinoid system and its associated deficiencies may hold the key to relieving pain and alleviating bothersome symptoms that are difficult to treat.

Use of CBD (Epidiolex, GW Pharmaceuticals) to treat intractable seizures associated with Dravet syndrome and Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, along with THC (2.7 mg) and CBD (2.5 mg) per spray (nabiximols, Sativex, GW Pharmaceuticals) to treat spasticity associated with MS is supported by published research and has emerged as a viable way to manage these difficult-to-treat conditions when available and standard approaches yield minimal improvement.

Market aspects of cannabinoids

As clinicians seek less harmful modalities than opioids for treating chronic pain, PTSD, gastrointestinal, and autoimmune disorders, liverwort and its derivatives may hold promise as a safer therapy. The road to get there will involve not only refining methods of extraction and purification, but a significant amount of preclinical studies in animal models, before it’s ever tested in humans.

“2018 has seen the phenomenal rise of Cannabis and hemp (CBD) as an alternative therapy to alleviate the symptoms of pain, epilepsy, PTSD, MS, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, GI disorders, and many other chronic conditions,”said Rich Able, a medical device consultant based in Seattle.

“This is a very exciting time as big liquor and big pharma companies have invested billions of dollars into Cannabis ventures and clinical labs throughout the year,” offered Able. “This trend will continue as clinicians potentially investigate safer plant-based alternative therapies such as liverwort.”

“Known plant-based compounds like this one [PET] can be challenging to protect with patents, which is one reason why they may not be prioritized by industry,” said Greg Wesner, Chair of Lane Powell’s Intellectual Property Litigation Team, based in Seattle. “Nevertheless, even if the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) itself is not patentable as a chemical entity, it may be possible to obtain patent protection for a drug candidate that combines the API with an effective, patentable drug delivery technology.”

“Moreover, the API could be the subject of a method of treatment patent if the API is discovered to be a novel treatment for a disease indication,” added Wesner.

A recent study revealed that a moss-like plant known as a liverwort harbors a cannabinoid with remarkable chemical similarities to THC found in Cannabis, and also yields quite similar effects in the brains of mammals.

Does Hemp Seed Contain Phytic Acid?

What Is the Healthiest Bean to Eat?

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, but before you get too concerned or excited, you should know that it’s not the same as marijuana. The hemp plant and its seeds contain only tiny amounts of THC, which is the compound in marijuana that produces a high. Consequently, eating hemp seeds will not mellow you out or give you the munchies. Hemp seeds are also unlikely to cause many gastrointestinal problems because they don’t contain any phytic acid.

Hemp Seeds

The hemp plant has been used by various cultures around the globe for thousands of years. It can be made into paper, clothes, soap, fuel and food. Hemp plants produce seeds, which are very high in nutrition. They are an excellent source of complete protein, which means they contain all the essential amino acids your body cannot produce. Hemp seed is also a very good source of fiber and essential fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, and it contains many vitamins and minerals in trace amounts. Possession and consumption of hemp seeds is legal in the United States and Canada, but using them to grow plants is a gray area due to their association with marijuana. That’s why many hemp seeds are sterilized by radiation before they are sold or imported into the U.S.

Easily Digested

Unlike many seeds, nuts, beans and legumes, your body can easily digest and absorb hemp seeds and derive nutrients from them. Most seeds, grains and legumes need to be soaked, dried, cooked and/or sprouted to deactivate toxins and compounds usually referred to as anti-nutrients. Toxins and anti-nutrients, such as phytic acid, often cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, flatulence and diarrhea. They can also interfere with the absorption of nutrients.

Phytic Acid

Phytic acid is called an anti-nutrient because it’s indigestible and prevents your body from absorbing nutrients, especially minerals needed in small amounts such as zinc and iron but also macro-minerals such as calcium and magnesium and the B vitamin niacin. Phytic acid makes minerals and niacin unavailable to your body because it chelates or attaches to them and drags them out of the body. Phytic acid plays important roles for the seeds and grains that it’s in, but it can wreak havoc in human bodies and contribute to mineral and vitamin deficiencies. Hemp seeds are unusual in that they contain no phytic acid, so you can eat them raw without any special preparations.

Rich Sources of Phytic Acid

Foods that contain high levels of phytic acid include sesame seeds, linseed, Brazil nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans and pinto beans. Consequently, these foods are typically prepared in same fashion before consumption. For example, sesame seeds and peanuts are usually roasted to destroy phytic acid and render it harmless.

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, but before you get too concerned or excited, you should know that it’s not the same as marijuana.

About Heavyweight Seeds

Heavyweight Seeds started in mid-2008, when their team visited a local cultivator who had obtained incredible results from his latest crop. They purchased clones of his mother plants and bought them back to Spain with them.

The resulting strains created of the cross between the aforementioned mother plants was truly mid-blowing. To preserve these special phenotypes more efficiently, Heavyweight Seeds decided to create their own gene pool. It took about a year to ready their products for the market and create a brand, which has become Heavyweight Seeds.

Heavyweight Seeds put much of their focus on creating strains with incredible resin production. Their genetics produce a return in resin between 10% and 20% grown under normal conditions with generic nutrients.

Heavyweight Seeds use extreme germination methods during the breeding process. They put the seeds in places where humidity and temperature variables are adaptable, forcing them to germinate in poor conditions. They then work with the plants that have passed the first stage. This selection process guarantees that the individuals Heavyweight work with will produce seeds that can germinate anywhere.

The philosophy of Heavyweight Seeds is simple; they only breed strains with high production (flowers and resin) and strong effects. If a grower wants a product of the highest quality and bountiful crops, they needn’t look any further than the Heavyweight Seeds range.

The library of seeds that Heavyweight Seeds has created is expanding all of the time but some of their classic, original strains remain favourites with their customers.
