Ministry of Cannabis, an Amsterdam based cannabis seedbank, announces new initiatives to support legal medical marijuana users.

Ministry of Cannabis is a well known cannabis seeds (http://www. ministryofcannabis. com) bank, active in the Netherlands since 2007. In these 3 years the seeds of the Ministry have travelled the whole world. Looking at their website, it is possible to order 12 different marijuana seeds (http://www. ministryofcannabis. com) strains, which 10 are feminized cannabis seeds (http://www. ministryofcannabis. com/feminized-cannabis-seeds. html), and 2 autoflowering seeds (http://www. ministryofcannabis. com/autoflowering-feminized-cannabis-seeds. html). Reading the descriptions of these strains, it seems that they focus on the botanical and recreational aspect of the plant, rather the medical one.

“We are a commercial company and we propose our products in the most fascinating way for our customers, as it is normal to be” says Saskia, the director of the company, “but at the same time we cannot ignore the requests of those who suffer and cannot have yet an efficient access to the marijuana as medicine”.

The marijuana is the unfertilized flower of the female cannabis plants. There are many varieties of cannabis and only some of them contains enough cannabinoids (the active ingredients) to be used as medicine. The marijuana, consider as a medicine, should be rather evaluated like a “cocktail” of medicines, because its final effect is given by the interactions of several teens of substances, rather than one, like in a “normal” medicine.

The staff of the Ministry is since its foundation busy to give the best suggestions to the patiences that ask for their help. “We are of course not doctors” adds Saskia “so our suggestions are based mostly on our knowledge of every single strain that we produce and on the past experiences of other customers with similar diseases”.

The staff of the Ministry is now busy to rewrite all the descriptions of the strains, so each one will contain not only botanical and recreational info, but also an orientation about its possible medical use. Patiences with glaucoma, for example, will greatly benefit from the high THC content of strains like Carnival and White Widow (http://www. ministryofcannabis. com/feminized-cannabis-seeds/white-widow-feminized. html). Those who suffer of sclerosis can find beneficial the effect of a strong indica like Kandahar.

Many european countries (like UK, Swiss, Spain, Netherlands etc) already allow the prescription of marijuana for medical use. In many other countries the debate is opened. One element that is sure is, the prohibition till now didn't help the medical research. “We are not scientists and we don't wanna replace the role of the doctors” ends Saskia “but till there are proper scientific research programs, the best that we can do is to collect info on a practical base, and with those we help suffering people to feel a little better”.

The new, updated descriptions in the Ministry of Cannabis website will be available within the end of June.

Companies Join in the Wok Revolution to Save Earth's Precious Resources

Companies Join in the Wok Revolution to Save Earth's Precious Resources

Wok Water Saver has teamed up with Banner Beer Equipment Company and Omni Team, Inc in order to supply and fabricate a new wok table that will soon begin production. Find out why the Wok revolution is all about saving resources.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2009

The Wok Water Saver Company, the company behind the water-saving invention that promises to revolutionize the restaurant industry, has just teamed up with two companies for future wok productions: Banner Beer Equipment Company and Omni Team, Inc. These companies will help Wok Water Saver in the supplying and fabricating process involved in producing more wok tables. Production will commence in September 2009.

The wok table is the brainchild of Hector Delgadillo, who once worked as an air conditioning and refrigeration repairman. Delgadillo noticed along his daily travels that that traditional wok tables wasted literally thousands of gallons of water every week. He sold his first invention to a restaurant called the Asian Buffet in Rialto, California in the summer of 2009.

The man he worked with, Ven Cun of The Asia Buffet, stated that woks typically burn 200-300 degrees and are in need of constant cooling. This is why almost one thousand gallons of water will be used in the cooling process, demanding in excess of $3,000 a month from the average restaurant. The specially made wok water saving table cools the top of the cooker using only a minimal supply of water. Instead of water, the device uses a refrigeration system that is turned on whenever woks are first started. Therefore, there is continuous cooling in place of millions of wasted gallons of water.

Banner Beer Equipment Company and Omni Team, Inc have united with Delgadillo's Wok Water Saver, Inc. to start production on these tables stop in an effort to stop the waste of precious water resources. Additionally, Wok Water Saver is already working with the Metropolitan Water District, the Department of Water and Power for the City of Los Angeles and the City of Alhambra in an effort to help minimize the use of water for Chinese Wok Ranges.

All of these organizations and companies are coming together to help with the manufacturing of new wok tables and hoping to end the age of needless water waste. Wok tables waste more water than any other cooking device in the world. Wok Water Saver, Inc. is spouting that 90,000 gallons of water a month for one restaurant is simply too expensive for business and too harmful for the environment.
