White Diesel Haze Automatic (White Label)

White Diesel Haze feminized autoflowering seeds are the perfect choice for lovers of sativa cannabis varieties who are restricted by the height of their growing areas from cultivating many of these typically tall tropical strains.

Azarius has painstakingly searched the globe for only the finest genetics, with viable cuttings and live plants of Salvia divinorum, Iboga and more.

And no collection would be complete without our sacred mescaline cacti: Peyote (Lophophora williamsii), San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi) and Peruvian Torch (Trichocereus peruvianus). These cacti are cultivated, not taken from their natural habitat (where they have become quite scarce). Available in pots, cacti cluster, cuttings and in the form of grow kits for cultivating your own cacti. Cacti connoisseurs will be especially interested in the San Pedro crestate and Trichocereus bridgesii monstrose mutations; rare and beautiful varieties.

FURTHER PRODUCTS AND ORDERS ARE PLACED HERE.

Iboga (Tabernanthe iboga) cutting

Native to western Central Africa, Iboga is a perennial rainforest plant and hallucinogen that can stimulate the central nervous system and induce visions. Tabernanthe Iboga can grow up to approximately 2 meters; in the right conditions it can grow up to 10 meters.

The Iboga plant has small leaves and its flowers are white and pink. The fruit can be oval or round spherical shaped and has an orange colour. The root bark has the highest concentration of the alkaloid Ibogaine.

The Bwiti of Central Africa use Iboga, or more accurately the psychoactive component Ibogaine as part of their spiritual practices as they regard Iboga as the true tree of knowledge. Traditionally, small doses of the Iboga root bark are eaten or used for tea to reach stimulant and aphrodisiac effects. In higher doses a visionary state can be reached. In western society Ibogaine is used in treating chemical dependence.

Note: When your cutting arrives it may differ from our photograph and seem withered, but if you follow the steps below you'll quickly see it liven up again.

Growing Iboga

This Iboga cutting allows you to grow an Iboga plant at home. The cutting is shipped in a glass tube with agar, to ensure it survives the journey. As soon as you receive it, carefully take the cutting out of the casing and wash all the agar from the roots. Next, plant it in a pot and put it in the filter bag (included) to let it harden. Keep the Iboga moist at all times and slowly poke holes in the bag to let it acclimatize to dryer air. If the plant becomes stressed, you can cover up the holes with tape until it recovers.

The agar in this tube is naturally black due to added nutrients.

Mexican Tarragon (Tagetes lucida) live plant

A live plant of Mexican Tarragon (Tagetes lucida), to be planted in your outdoor garden or balcony pots. Tagetes Lucida, also known as Sweet marigold, is a member of the Sunflower family. It is a beautiful, bright green perennial plant from the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.

The first known use of Mexican Tarragon was as a ritual incense by the Aztec, who called it yauhtli or 'plant of the clouds'. The Huichol Indians used it in vision ceremonies. The Maya also believed the Tagetes species to have magical properties and used a variety in their sacred balché drink.

Nowadays the fresh herb is used worldwide. For example, one can easily find a bundle of fresh Tagetes lucida flowers at markets in Mexico. Locals use it as a spice, as a remedy for various ailments or as a ritual herb.

Peruvian Torch (Trichocereus peruvianus)

Another beautiful member of the "San Pedro" family, also known as the Peruvian Torch (Trichocereus peruvianus). This cactus has been used as a religious sacrament by a small number of Indian tribes in northern Peru. It’s probably the most powerful and magical specie from the Trichocereus family. The spines from this cactus are brown, but they turn grey as they get older.

T. peruvianus contains about the same concentration of mescaline as the San Pedro T. pachanoi cactus.

This cactus is a rapid and easy grower. It can be easily grown from seed. It tolerates a lot when it comes to its ideal growing circumstances. Therefore this cactus is perfect for the beginning cultivator. Under normal circumstances it will grow about 30 centimetres each year. In the summer it needs a lot of sun. A few hours of direct sunlight and the rest of the day indirect sunlight is the optimal sun exposure. When the roots have fully grown it needs only a little bit of water. Standard cactus soil will do for growing this species.

The small thornless Peyote cactus (Lophophora williamsii) originates from the south of Texas and northern Mexico. The plant is a very important religious sacrament in many native American cultures of Central and North-America. In Mexico the cactus is also sold as a medicine against blindness, fever and many other diseases.

The active alkaloids of the Peyote cactus are:

mescaline (3,4,5- trimethoxy-B-phenethylamine)
n-methylmescaline
n-acetylmescaline
lophophorine
thyramine
hordinenine
anhalaninine
anhalonidine
pellotine
o-methyllanhalonidine
The most important active alkaloid is mescaline.

Only one in a thousand San Pedro cacti (Trichocereus pachanoi) will grow into a crestate mutation. This large and beautiful entheogenic cactus is a lust for the eye. Don't be ashamed to get this cactus into your home only for decoration!

The San Pedro cactus is the oldest known magical plant from South America. Originally, this plant comes from Ecuador and Peru, where it still grows on the highlands at 2000 - 3000 metres.

The cactus can be grown under dry and wet circumstances, it grows quicker when it's watered regularly. However, without water the plant can survive for years and even produce new sprouts.

Semi and full crestate San Pedro

Two forms of the San Pedro crestate are available: a full crestate and semi crestate. Both forms are shipped in pot. The height varies between 20 to 30 cm.

The full crestate is a cactus that has immediately developed into a large fan shape, while the semi hasn't mutated until later, showing a crestate form on top of an otherwise (somewhat) regular San Pedro stem. Either form is quite a collector's item, but also equally potent as the regular cactus.

Effects - San Pedro Crestate

Mescaline cacti allow you to explore your inner fantasy world. They will give you a trip with spiritual, colourful visions and feelings of inner tranquillity, oneness with life, heightened awareness and rapid thought flow. The subject-object consciousness disappears, en you feel you are melted away in the sensory (mainly visual) perception. This comes mostly together with indescribable feelings of happiness.

The San Pedro trip is less heavy and 'friendlier' on the body than the Peyote trip. The nausea during the first hour after consumption will be less than with the Peyote.

Usage

The San Pedro crestate can be consumed just like the regular San Pedro, either fresh or dried.

FURTHER PRODUCTS AND ORDERS ARE PLACED HERE.

Try not to eat at least 6 hours before consuming the cacti. Remove the skin and thorns. Make sure you peel thinly as most of the active substances are concentrated just beneath the skin. You can now eat the meat around the wooden core. Beware of splinters. This cactus also tastes very bitter. The best thing to avoid the bitterness is to drink it with sour fruit juice, just as pineapple or grapefruit juice.

A tastier way of consuming the cacti is to make tea of them. Remove the thorns and cut the cacti in small pieces. Boil them for 2-3 hours in a closed pan with low heat. After letting it cool down you can mix it with fruit juice or honey.

The cacti can be dried by cutting them into slices and putting them in an oven on 50°C for 4 or 5 hours. Then you can eat the slices. An often occurring first effect is nausea. Some people say eating ginger helps to avoid the nausea.

Mescaline dosage

Remember that potency can vary greatly. Therefore it is best not to take the dosage all at once, but to build up the dosage gradually: take half of the dosage, wait an 60 to 90 minutes to see what the effect is, then if desired take half of what is left over and if necessary repeat. A San Pedro trip takes about two to two and a half hours to peak.

Mescaline dosages:
150 mg threshold dosage
150 - 300 mg light to moderate dosage
300 - 400 mg strong trip, last 6- 12 hours
450 - 500 mg possible ego dissolution, trip will last about 12 hours
500 - 600 mg definite ego dissolution, trip can last up to 24 hours
Fresh Cactus to mescaline ratio:
400 g contains about 480 mg Mescaline - 0.12% mescaline per gram of cactus (according to Schultes & Hofmann)

Dried Cactus to mescaline ratio:
100 g contains about 200 - 300 mg Mescaline - 0.2 - 0.3% mescaline per gram of cactus. Dry weight is 25% of the fresh weight (75% water)

Warning

Do not combine with alcohol, MAO-Inhibitors or other stimulants.
Do not use when pregnant, depressed, on medication, driving motorized vehicles, under 18 years old. When you're using San Pedro make sure there's someone with you to assist you when necessary.

Salvia sage extract 40x
 
A high quality standardised 40x extract of Salvia divinorum. The strongest one available at Azarius!

The Blue Lotus (Nymphaea caerulea) is also known as Blue water lily or Egyptian lotus. In the time of the ancient Egyptians, the plant was considered sacred. The Egyptians appreciated the flower not only for his pleasing smell, but also for its healing qualities. Many scenes depict women holding the flower, smelling its divine fragrance.

HERE YOU CAN TRY THESE PRODUCTS.

A standard dose is 6-10 drops in a liquid drink or under the tongue. You can also add the tincture directly to an alcoholic beverage such as wine. The benefit of using a tincture instead of flowers is that you don't need to steep the flowers in the wine. With the use of a tincture the wine can be drank immediately.

Kanna UC extract contains a higher amount of the alkaloid mesembrine than other extracts, making this version much more potent! Mesembrine is responsible for the sedative effects all Sceletium tortuosum extracts are known for.

Without the energizing part of Kanna which can make some feel slightly out of tune, this extract is really something else. Completely mellowing, and with the ability to make your surroundings funnier, kanna is nice to use in all sorts of circumstanes. Enjoy the stress-reducing and relaxing buzz of this potent extract, but make sure you only take small amounts at once (however regular you like), or else a slight nausea could occur.

What is Kanna?

Kanna is a South African narcotic plant also known as Sceletium Tortuosum. It's soothing sedative effect was discovered by the Hottentots (Khoikhoi) over 300 years ago. The tribesmen would chew, smoke or sniff Kanna for pleasure and inebriation.

Sakae Naa (Combretum quadrangulare) is a relatively unknown herb made from the leaves of the tree with the same name. The tree is found in various jungles and wetlands throughout Southeast Asia.

The extract is used in China as herbal medicine for common colds, sore throats and mild pain relief. Independent studies have confirmed the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Properties which the Combretum quadrangulare tree shares with other species in the Combretum family.

HERE YOU CAN TRY THESE PRODUCTS.

Sakae Naa is used by many people in Thailand and Myanmar though it is reportedly seldom sold. Farmers pick the leaves themselves and chew or smoke them, using it as a substitute for Mitragyna speciosa because Sakae Naa is remarkably similar to it in both look and taste. The effects are energizing and mildly sedating and last up to 4 hours. However, the Sakae Naa is less potent then mitrigyna Speciosa, which makes this extracted form quit interesting.

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.

Investigators at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York have found evidence that cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive component of marijuana, can prevent the accumulation of fat caused by alcohol – known as fatty liver disease.

Over time, elevated fat levels in the liver can lead to more severe problems such as hepatitis and cirrhosis.

Published online Jan. 4th in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, the researchers conducted the study by injecting mice with ethanol twice a day for 5 days to model the impact of binge drinking on the liver. Mice in the test group were given CBD prior to ethanol.

The results confirmed that CBD could prevent fat accumulation and other signs of liver injury. Molecular analysis pointed to multiple factors, including CBD’s anti-oxidant properties and its ability to stimulate pathways involved with fat breakdown.

The authors add that CBD can act as both an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, and has been suggested to block the progression of arthritis and type 1 diabetes, among other things.

The hope is to develop a potential drug for the prevention of fatty liver disease, they write, noting that CBD has recently shown promise in blocking alcohol-induced brain damage as well.

The study was funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Materials you will need:
- A strong grinder to grind the Cannabis material.
- A stove to heat the CannaButter.
- A medium sized heavy duty sauce pan/pot with lid. It's important to have the pot the same size as the element that it is on to ensure even heat distribution.
- A measuring cup.
- A whisk or a large fork to mix the material with the water/butter solution in the pot.
- Cheese cloth to strain the material before cooling.
- A bowl large enough to hold and cool the CannaButter material.
- A space in your refrigerator to cool and separate the water from butter.
- A heavy duty plastic wrap to handle and compress the CannaButter into a smaller, easier to handle shape.
- A freezable container to store the material
- A space in your freezer to store the finished product.

Please Make sure you have all these things before you begin and have them set aside as you will need them immediately during and at the end of the CannaButter making process.

Note:
To make a strong CannaButter you will need to adjust the amount of Cannabis you use in accordance with the strength of butter you would like. It is not recommended to make weak CannaButter or reduce the Cannabis:Butter ratio as you may feel "ripped off" after you've tried the butter.
This recipe will make about 350g of medium-grade strength CannaButter.
Remember you will have a small loss when handling the material.

So with that being said,

Ingredients you will need:
- 1lbs of unsalted butter.
- 2cups of water.
- 1 ounce of premium,middle or low grade Cannabis. Obviously the better product you use the better the butter will be.

That's it!
Okay, Now go get your shit together and let's cook!

To Prepare:
We'll begin by grinding the Cannabis material very very fine.
Way beyond the extent that you would grind it if you were smoking it. Make your Cannabis a fine powder. Using an electric coffee grinder dedicated to the purpose of grinding Cannabis or cleaning one VERY, VERY well. It's suggest buying a rinky dink coffee grinder if you do not have one as cutting the Cannabis with scissors or grinding it with a space case grinder will not make the Cannabis fine enough.
You basically want a bowl of very, very fine Cannabis material.

Cooking:
Bring 2cups of water to a covered boil. Once the water is boiling, add your butter and melt it in the water. Once the butter is melted, reduce the heat to a very low setting so that when covered the CannaButter will simmer but not boil. We will now add the ground Cannabis material to the water and butter solution... Once you add the Cannabis powder you will whisk and mix it into the pot thoroughly, so that there are no clumps and nothing stuck to the bottom. Now that you've made sure there are no clumps in the solution, place the lid on the pot and leave the heat on a minimum temperature.
The CannaButter is now ready to simmer and cook for 22-24 hours.
This amount of time is important. It is required to extract the THC from the finely ground Cannabis. However, you do not want to cook the CannaButter any longer than 24 hours. NO MORE THAN 24 HOURS.
After 24 hours the THC will degrade and the butter will go bitter.
During this 24 hour cooking period you will need to check on the CannaButter every few hours to ensure that the boil is not to strong and to ensure that the butter has not reduced to much. If you find the solution reducing faster than expected it does not hurt to add a few table spoons of water over the 24 hour period.

Extraction:
Once you have simmered the CannaButter for long enough, turn the heat off.
Let the solution sit for 2-4 minutes and remove it from the heat.

USE APPROPRIATE CLOTHING AS THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN BURN YOURSELF... in other words... don't do this next step in your boxers.

You are now ready to extract the used Cannabis material from the CannaButter solution...
Place the cheese cloth over an open bowl and ensure that when the liquid is poured through the cheese cloth will not go with it. The idea here is to strain the solution using the cheese cloth so that you will not have bits of cannabis in the solution. Most of the THC is extracted by now. Once the solution has been strained through the cheese cloth and the material collected, you will have a solution in a bowl and cheese cloth full of soggy Cannabis material.
Squeeze and extract as much of the solution from the cheese cloth and material as possible. The butter solution is what you want, not the bi-product which is the soggy Cannabis.
Remove as much of the solution as possible into the bowl.


Cooling:
Place the bowl with the CannaButter solution into your reserved space in your refrigerator and let it cool for a few hours, even overnight. This process will separate the fats from the water. The fat being our CannaButter. During this process you will be able to see the progress of the butter as it cools, much like watching Jell-o go firm. However, you want to let it sit long enough to ensure the complete separation of the fats from the water.

Removing Your Butter and Storing:
Removing the butter from the bowl may seem a bit tricky...but will be considerably less messy if you use the Heavy duty plastic wrap to handle the now solid butter. Simply remove enough plastic and use it like a doggy bag to remove the top slab of CannaButter from the bowl. Pat dry the CannaButter to remove any excess water. Now use the plastic wrap to compress the CannaButter into a smaller more manageable size. Store in a freezable,airtight container or mason jar.
Note:
Depending on the amount of CannaButter you make, it may be better to use a slotted spoon or spatula instead of your hands.

KEEP FROZEN AT ALL TIMES.
If kept frozen the butter will not go bad or lose any potency before you get around to using it.
The butter will melt quickly once it warms up.. so handle it quickly and keep it in the freezer as much as possible.
And that's it! Now go lick clean some utensils and enjoy your CannaButter.

CannaButter can be used in a range of things and can even be used to bake goods like muffins,cookie and brownies. Some simply enjoy CannaButter on toast. Whatever you decide to use it in or on, remember that you do not want to re-cook it but baking it into something for a short period of time (about the length of time it takes to bake cookies or muffins) will not harm your CannaButter at all.  Enjoy!

Purpose and character of the use: The purpose and character is non-commercial, transformative use. No money is being earned or asked from the video, and the use of the music in the video qualifies as transformative because it adds new meaning and message to the song.

Nature of copyrighted work: Artistic (sound recording)

The amount and substantiality of the portion used: No more than necessary for the purpose used.

The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the original work: There is no negative effect on the value of the original work as my use does not substitute for or compete with the original. Moreover there is no negative effect on any licensing for the original song, as the major music labels have not provided any means to license music for use in YouTube videos.

This video shows how to use YouTube's new process for appealing reinstated Content ID copyright claims against your videos. YouTube established this new process in October 2012 after facing increasing criticism for allowing copyright claimants to unilaterally reinstate copyright claims effectively claim videos they had no rights in. The appeals process adds yet another hoop to jump through to get illegitimate copyright claims against your videos removed, but it is a step in the right direction. Since the process is fairly complicated, I created this tutorial to walk people through the process of appealing a Content ID claim based on fair use.

 

The fact that everyone ignores a human being fallen on the sidewalk, doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do! It is by simple and heroic actions that we begin to appreciate the true meaning of the word "humanity".

Share this video to spread awareness and put an end to this phenomenon... once and for all!

I got into a nasty bike accident the day before I saw this. I'm so grateful people came to my aid and prevented a bruised rib from getting much worse. Now I wonder what would have happened if I looked different...

Experiment: Importanta aparentelor. Ce se intampla cand lesini pe strada? Experiment: The importance of appearances. What happens when you fall down on the street?

La mai bine de 5 minute dupa ce pici jos pe strada... oamenii continua sa treaca pe langa tine fara sa faca nimic.

Faptul ca toata lumea ignora o fiinta umana ce a cazut pe trotuar, nu inseamna ca acesta e modul corect de a proceda! Tocmai prin actiuni simple si eroice incepem sa apreciem adevaratul semnificat al cuvantului "umanitate".

Condivide acest video pentru a difuza constientizarea si pentru a pune capat acestui fenomen: o data pentru totdeauna!

Experiment: The importance of appearances. Almost 5 minutes later after you fall down on the street... people just keep walking by and doing nothing.

The fact that everyone ignores a human being fallen on the sidewalk, doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do! It is by simple and heroic actions that we begin to appreciate the true meaning of the word "humanity".

unfortunately that is a reality these days - we humans - especially in the west - only want to hear "a" truth that fits our own limited perspective rather than one that is open & is truth in many ...
