Hemp Fibers Make Better Supercapacitors Than Graphene

bkcallahan Re:Oh, come now (178 comments)

Indica has chemicals that are antagonists to THC and help counteract it; Indica gives the "body buzz: or "Couch lock" feeling. CBD also helps with pain. Sativa has very little CBD and gives the "Dude, have you ever looked at your hands" type high.
Hemp and marijuana are the same thing; the difference is which traits are emphasized. Ruderalis is a small plant with little production; it is also auto-flowering (Doesn't need a change in light cycle to flower)

If you haven't guessed, I have my card.

Here's WIkipedia's version:
A total of 46 varieties of hemp with low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are certified by the European Union (EU).[56] They have, unlike other types, a very high fiber content of 30-40%. In contrast to cannabis for medical use, varieties grown for fiber and seed have less than 0.2% THC and they are unsuitable for producing hashish and marijuana.[57] The most important cannabinoid in industrial hemp is cannabidiol (CBD) with a proportion of 1 to 5%.

The variety of appearances for cannabis. Only C. sativa (left) is suited for industrial hemp, but it also has medicinal varieties.
Cannabis sativa L. subsp. sativa var. sativa is the variety grown for industrial use, while C. sativa subsp. indica generally has poor fiber quality and is primarily used for recreational and medicinal purposes. The major difference between the two types of plants is the appearance and the amount of 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) secreted in a resinous mixture by epidermal hairs called glandular trichomes, although they can also be distinguished genetically.[58] Oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis approved for industrial hemp production produce only minute amounts of this psychoactive drug, not enough for any physical or psychological effects. Typically, hemp contains below 0.3% THC, while cultivars of Cannabis grown for recreational use can contain anywhere from 2% to over 20%.[59]

bkcallahan Re:Freedom of Speech? (328 comments)

"The only freedom which counts is the freedom to do what some other people think to be wrong. There is no point in demanding freedom to do that which all will applaud. All the so-called liberties or rights are things which have to be asserted against others who claim that if such things are to be allowed their own rights are infringed or their own liberties threatened. This is always true, even when we speak of the freedom to worship, of the right of free speech or association, or of public assembly. If we are to allow freedoms at all there will constantly be complaints that either the liberty itself or the way in which it is exercised is being abused, and, if it is a genuine freedom, these complaints will often be justified. There is no way of having a free society in which there is not abuse. Abuse is the very hallmark of liberty."

Federal monies to influence State elections?

bkcallahan bkcallahan writes  |  yesterday

bkcallahan (2515468) writes "Seems a taxpayer-subsidized tour is coming through Oregon — one of the states voting on legalizing marijuana this year — and it seems they're trying to influence a ballot Measure — #91. Regardless of which side you are on with respect to the Measure, shouldn't there be more outrage at this? Why isn't this on the news. Kevin Sabet has been caught on a local forum with an unequivocal message: Vote No On measure 91"
