Salvia (also known Diviner's Sage, Ska María Pastora or Seer's Sage) is an interesting psychoactive plant containing Salvinorin A, one of the most potent hallucinogens known. Within a few years Salvia divinorum has become a very popular product in smartshops.
Azarius offers standardized salvia extracts. A standardized extract contains pure crystalline salvinorin A, a very rare compound that few people have ever seen and even fewer people have ever produced. It takes a fair amount of chemistry knowledge and skill to produce pure salvinorin A, so a standardized extract may cost a little more, but it is well worth it.
HERE IS THE LINK WHERE TO PURCHASE THE PRODUCTS.
Many of the other salvia extracts on the market are crude extracts. Crude extracts are made by soaking salvia leaves in toxic solvents to dissolve the salvinorin A out of the leaves. The trouble is, a lot more than just the salvinorin A gets dissolved out of the leaves, much of the plant lipids get dissolved in the solvent as well and end up in the salvia extract.
Salvia divinorum brings you into a dreamy, trip-like state of consciousness, high doses give a real trip with visions and possibly timetraveling and out-of-body experiences.
Salvia sage extract 5x
5X extract salvia divinorum, contains 12.5 mg salvinorin, the strongest natural hallucinogen which exists.

We, from TurismoAssociati, have begun to create free apps for WP8 (here is the LINK to our Store). Here are all the information you need to create, insert and post a Windows Phone application with ads:
The Google Mobile Ads SDK allows developers to easily incorporate mobile-friendly text and image banners as well as rich, full-screen web apps known as interstitials. An ever-growing set of "calls-to-action" are supported in response to user touch including direct access to the App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone 8 Marketplace, iTunes, maps, video and the dialer. Ads can be targeted by location and demographic data.
For Windows 8 you will need to meet these requirements:
Windows Phone SDK 8.0
Visual Studio 2012 or later
You can get the SDK by downloading the zip.
Incorporate the downloaded DLL
1. Right-click the References node in Solution Explorer and choose Add Reference.
2. Select the Browse button to find the unzipped Google Mobile Ads SDK.
3. Choose the downloaded GoogleAds.dll file and click Add.
4. Make sure that GoogleAds.dll is selected and click OK.
With the SDK, you will need to select mandatory and optional capabilities for your app.
You can modify your app's capabilities by opening WMAppManifest.XML and selecting the Capabilities tab.
ID_CAP_NETWORKING Access to network services is required when requesting ads.
ID_CAP_WEBBROWSERCOMPONENT Required since the AdView is a web browser.
ID_CAP_MEDIALIB_PLAYBACK Provides access for currently playing media items.
ID_CAP_MEDIALIB_AUDIO Provides read access to audio items in media library.

Banner ads use a small portion of the screen to entice users to "click through" to a richer, full-screen experience such as a website or app store page. This guide shows you how to enable your app to serve a banner ad.
Windows Phone 8 apps are composed of controls the user sees, such as text areas, buttons and other UI elements. AdView is simply another control displaying ads that respond to user touch.
Adding a banner ad
Locate the AdView control in the Toolbox menu. Note that this is different from the AdControl control. Skip to step 2 if you've already got the AdView control in your toolbox.
Right click in the Toolbox and select Choose Items.... Click Browse on the menu that pops up and select the GoogleAds.dll file you previously downloaded (if you downloaded the package using NuGet, you should be able to find it in the packages folder in your project). Make sure the AdView control is selected from the GoogleAds namespace, then click OK.
Like many controls, AdView is most easily specified in XAML markup. One way to do this is to drag the AdView control from your Toolbox into the pane that shows the output of your XAML markup.

How to modify the app manifest file for Windows Phone 8?
The app manifest file, WMAppManifest.xml, contains properties and settings that are required when you submit your app to the Windows Phone Store. Windows Phone SDK 8.0 includes a Manifest Designer that is integrated with Visual Studio. Manifest Designer makes it easy for you to update the manifest file without editing the raw XML of the file.
You can use Manifest Designer to modify the manifest file for apps that target Windows Phone OS 7.1 as well as apps that target Windows Phone 8.
How to modify the manifest file in Manifest Designer?
To modify the manifest file you use Manifest Designer.
1. In Visual Studio, close the manifest file if it’s already open in XML code view.
2. In Solution Explorer, expand the Properties node of the open project.
3. Double-click the manifest file, WMAppManifest.xml. Or, right-click the file and select Open or View Designer from the context menu. If the manifest file is already open in XML code view, Visual Studio prompts you to close the file. Then Manifest Designer opens in a new Visual Studio tab.

As you noticed already, in Windows 8 you did not find IE in the Programs and Features so you can downgrade it like you did in Windows 7 and still test and use websites and interfaces that in IE8 won't work...
What do I do to still use Internet Explorer 8 instead of IE 11? Our blog, for example, requires IE8 for the citizen journalists that post their original articles free of charge on our dBlog Open Source CMS. If you have any other version of the Microsoft Corporation's browser like IE 9 or 10, the HTML Editor (visual WYSIWYG) just will not load.
So, you want to know how to emulate any other older version of the IE browser?
First, you have to open Internet Explorer in desktop mode and press F12 to bring up the Developer Tools at the bottom of the page.
How to open Internet Explorer 11 in Desktop Mode on Windows8? Well, the desktop mode gives you visible tabs, the address bar and easy access to the IE options. Contrary to the Desktop mode is the New User interface (Metro mode), called a Chromeless mode because it uses all the screen and is without borders. From within the New User Interface, to pass to the Desktop Mode, go to Control Panel (just start typing it), and select Internet Options. Go to the Program tab, and from the drop down box, choose how you open links: Let Internet Explorer decide, Always in Internet Explorer or Always in IE on the desktop.
In the Developer Tools, after pressing F 12, down on the left you will search for the Emulation (Ctrl+8) Tab. Just select Document mode: 8 and the USer agent string: Internet Explorer 8.
Of course, you can emulate as a User agent string: Internet Explorer 10, 9, 7 and 6, IE10 - Windows Phone 8, IE9 - Windows Phone 7, IE - Xbox One, IE - Xbox 360, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Apple Safari (iPad) and Big Bot. As Document mode you can choose: Edge, 10, 9, 8, 7 and 5.
That's all folks!

Crust Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour I teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar 6 tablespoons cannabutter (marijuana butter) 6 tablespoons shortening 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water
1. Warm the cannabutter in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it (not melted).
2. Combine all other ingredients into a large bowl. You may use your hands or a Dough Blender here.
3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Apple Filling Ingredients:
5 Tart Peeled Apples 1 Cup Sugar 2 Tablespoons Flour 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon 1/4 Teaspoon Salt 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
Apple Filling Instructions:Peel and slice apples and soak in water with a tablespoon of lemon juice for 10 minutes. Mix everything except the apples in a large bowl.Remove apple slices from water and place in the bowl with with the other ingredients. Mix them around in order to coat the apples as much as possible.
Putting it all together:Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Roll one portion into a flat circle 1/8 inch thick.Place and shape into baking pan. Put apples in crust and top with some butter to enhance the flavor of the apples (you may use cannabutter here if you'd like). Roll out the remaining portion of dough and place on top of pie. Use the back end of a knife to press the top to the bottom crust. Wrap tinfoil over the pan so it covers just the other portion of the top crust, so the edges do not burn. Bake at 400°F for 55 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown. Enjoy!
Serve with hot apple cider! Mmm.
It's still illegal in most areas of the world, but the cannabis plant boasts some incredible benefits – not just as a healing medicinal, but as an eco-friendly source for clothing, energy, and even food.
But the legalization of the plant is still a highly debated topic – despite the many case studies that support its use in treating cancers, including Leukemia. Social stigma is now the predominant factor inhibiting its use and legalization, but that perception is being changed by the many pro-cannabis supporters speaking out from various fields.
Insight into how THC (the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant) cures Cancer is explained by molecular biologist, Dr. Christina Sanchez, in the video above. A scientist at the Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, she relayed her long-time studies and enlightening findings with Cannabis Planet TV.
Cannabinoids refer to any group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. The compounds activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, and in effect the body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids. These play a major role in many processes within the body that help create a healthy environment.
But one does not have to go out of their comfort zone to experience the effects – as cannabis has been shown to treat cancer without any psychoactive effects.
In many situations, cannabinoids have been proven to reduce Cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While the rate of success still varies (depending on the strain of the plant used), many patients are experiencing a profound reduction of cancer in a short period of time.
A lot of debate surrounding the medicinal use of the plant is based on the perception that cannabis must be smoked for it to be beneficial; this is actually false, and could be a relief to some. Contrary to popular notion, smoking the weed does not assist a great deal in treating disease within the body, as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through such method. Instead, using the oil from the plant or eating it is the best way to go about obtaining the necessary ingredients from the cannabinoids.
The Earth offers many remedies to assist the human body in re-gaining balance. As mankind has evolved and implemented modern ways of survival, a disconnect with natural living was created, and in effect, many issues have rapidly manifested in the last few hundred years. But deriving plant-based medicines and treating food, as well as lifestyle habits, as preventable medicine will ensure that body balance is regained.
Social acceptance of the use of the cannabis plant is growing, although it is still held in different regard than chemotherapy. But as its medicinal properties are more deeply explored and shared, the world can continue to re-shape its opinion and allowance of its use.

While clinical trials are lacking, surveys of patients have helped researchers identify the most common reasons for using medical marijuana.
Recently, a team at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System surveyed 217 patients at a dispensary in California to find out what cannabis might be helpful for.
These were the results (patients could choose more than one):
The survey also revealed a much longer list of uses, but reported less commonly. The entire list of benefits reported by patients were:
"HIV/AIDS, nightmares, arthritis, glaucoma, cancer, attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, neuropathy, asthma, seizures, bipolar disorder, Crohn's disease, epilepsy, hepatitis C, emotion regulation, restless leg syndrome, broken back/spinal cord injury, diabetes, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, sciatica, recovery from surgery, alcohol over-consumption, allergies, borderline personality disorder, boredom, breathing, symptoms related to being burned, carpal tunnel, tendinitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, cyclical vomiting syndrome, dermatomyositis, digestions/polyps, Dupuytren's contracture, fibromyalgia, former lateral epicondylitis, gastroparesis, Grave's disease, hydrocephalus, intestinal bleeding, lack of motivation, leg cramps, loss of arm, neuralgia, post-viral refractory fatigue, tapering off opiates, tenosynovitis, anger and mood swings."
Contrary to popular belief, it appears it's not just pain that marijuana can be good for.
Researchers at the Medicinal Chemistry Institute of the Spanish National Council for Research (CSIC) believe a class of chemicals found in marijuana, called cannabinoids, hold promise in improving the lives of Alzheimer's patients.
The team, led by Concepción Pérez, PhD, explained last month in the European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry why cannabinoids are "very attractive candidates" for new treatments.
Cannabinoids act on specific pathways in the brain called cannabinoid receptors, which are responsible for the effects of marijuana. According to the team, previous studies on the role of cannabinoids in Alzheimer's suggest a number of benefits.
Between the two cannabinoid pathways, CB1 activity seems to preserve cognitive function while CB2 activity may help protect and repair the brain.
"Taken together, these results suggest that CB1 receptor agonists may interrupt the mechanism of excitotoxicity and CB2 receptor agonists may suppress neuroinflammation and lead to plaque removal."
Cannabinoids can target not only the endocannabinoid system, they note, but other disease-related systems as well.
The most widely prescribed drugs today help boost levels of acetylcholine, with the assumption that a lack of acetylcholine underlies Alzheimer's. However, these drugs have proven to be ineffective.
More current research instead points to chronic inflammation as the cause of Alzheimer's.
The team is currently working on developing CB2 agonists that can prevent the build-up of beta-amyloid plaque in the brain – a key marker of the disease.
The build-up of plaque is believed to block neuron signaling and trigger cell death through inflammation.
Likewise, researchers in the U.S. have identified cannabinoids as promising candidates for preventing inflammation in Alzheimer's.
Gary Wenk, PhD, a professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University, told TIME that in his 25 years of researching ways to combat brain inflammation, "cannabinoids are the first and only class of drugs that have ever been effective."
Published in the American Journal of Public Health, a group of economics researchers found that medical marijuana laws led to a sharp drop in suicide rates among young men.
The results seem to support the belief that marijuana can be used to cope with stressful life events, says study co-author Daniel Rees, PhD, professor of economics at the University of Colorado Denver.
"In keeping with what advocates of medical marijuana would argue, that is, if you're depressed, if you have to cope with a stressful situation, marijuana actually helps."
Rees notes that some research suggests marijuana works as an anti-depressant, but the evidence isn't conclusive. On the other hand, medical marijuana laws have also been linked to less alcohol consumption – particularly among young men.
Less alcohol consumption following medical marijuana legalization could also explain the drop in suicide rates, he says.
But the study was the first time researchers have looked at medical marijuana laws and suicide rates. Rees believes more research needs to be done to be sure.
"The relationship really does seem to exist. But we don't have a lot to say about mechanism."
Rees, along with co-authors D. Mark Anderson of Montana State University and Joseph Sabia of San Diego State University, compared changes in annual suicide rates between 1990-2007 of states that legalized medical marijuana and states that did not.
Suicide rates seemed to decline overall among the 12 states that passed laws during this period. But the only statistically significant decrease was in men 20-39 years old.
The team's previous research has also shown a strong correlation between medical marijuana laws and reduced traffic fatalities.
