We have the garden of remembrance boxed off for a lot of the day and we can use the space to entertain from 3-6pm. We will wait till 6pm to allow working people to join us and from 3-4:20 we will have music, game’s and poster making. There will be a few stalls set up for Cannabis related businesses to share information and products with the public.
Their will be 2 speakers from 4pm this will build up to the crowd making a #cloudinthegarden at 4:20 pm.

After which games and music will continue till 5:50 and we move at 6pm down O’Connell st across the Liffey to Kildare street. ETA at Leinster house 6:50, then we have at least 3 more speakers and a possible open mic for any crowd member to give their brief story.

We have the idea for a best dressed competition and will give away a prize at the end of the event.

We will have flyers printed and can send them to any club who wants to promote the event in their local area. In Dublin we plan to be out on the street handing out flyers to the public every weekend in April.

Irish Cannabis union clubs meeting 420 invitation

Join us in coming out of the cannabis closet at 420 in Dublin

Meeting details:

Time: 1.30 – 2.30pm

Location: To Be Decided:

Objective: Bring together a core group of like minded cannabis clubs to ensure our right to legally run our clubs to grow, consume and share cannabis with other members.

Agenda: Irish Cannabis union established as legal organisation.

Cannabis Clubs Call to action:

If you are traveling up to join the “420 Could in the Garden” celebration please join us for a Cannabis Club’s meeting before hand for an hour. 1.30pm – 2.30pm and then off to join the celebrations before they start.

If you are involved in or would like to set up your own local Cannabis club with the intention of becoming part of a national organisation of Cannabis club’s Please join us on 420 in Dublin.

We would like to get together clubs and people that are interested in creating a legal organisation that will allow the cannabis clubs and their members grow, consume and share their cannabis with other members.

It would be great to get at least one representative of existing clubs to join us.

This legal organisation  would work on behalf of member cannabis clubs to ensure the right to directly access cannabis for medicinal, therapeutic and personal needs.

Back Ground:

My name is Thomas O Connor.

On behalf of myself and the Irish Cannabis Union I would like to host this meeting to meet like minded people.

My cannabis back ground is, Im involved in Kerry Cannabis Club, have my own pro cannabis website http://www.freemyweed.info and Im currency director of http://www.norml.ie

I want to ensure my right to grow and consume my own cannabis and have the right to share it with my family and friend’s if they want it.

I know to do this that we need to fight for our right’s and the best way I think we can do this is by setting up a legal entity.  That can represent us by creating a vision, plan and structure that will allow the Cannabis Club model to be part of any future cannabis regulation or official licensing model’s that will be in upcoming legislation .

The Endocannabinoid System

Cannabis has an amazing influence on the human body and this is because of our endocannabinoid system. This system consists of a series of receptors that are configured  to accept only cannabinoids.

Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. Two examples of cannabinoids would be THC and CBD. Cannabinoids found naturally in the body are called endocannabinoids. ‘Endo’ stands for endogenous, meaning within the body.

The two known cannabinoid receptors we have are called Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2). Both are found throughout the body. When cannabinoids activate CB1 or CB2 receptors, they change the way the body functions.

Research shows that THC is specifically keyed to the CB1 receptor so this means it is responsible for the psychoactive effects. Its most important effect is its ability to moderate the perception of pain. The Intensity of the pain feelings is reduced when THC is present in the CB1 site.

The CB2 receptors are keyed to CBD which has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic qualities. Another effect of CBD is that it reduces the effects of THC. It actually cancels the THC from the CB1 receptor. This is a good way to help anyone that suffers the short term side effects of THC like paranoia or anxiety. Some CBD will help calm those unwanted feelings.

The main job of the endocannabinoid system is to promote homeostasis. Homeostasis is the body’s attempt to maintain a constant and balanced internal environment. It controls and regulates pain, appetite, inflammation, sleep and cell metabolism. When the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly this can cause disruption to multiple systems in the body leading to illness.

The fact that we have a system in our body that produces cannabinoids, and is specifically designed to accept them, should be more than enough proof that cannabis is medicine yet medical schools don’t teach it and most doctors have never heard of our endocannabinoid system. Natural cannabinoids keep you healthy and happy. This piece of information doesnt even scratch the surface on the abilities of the cannabis plant and our endocannabinoid system.   To find out more click here.

 

The Irish Cannabis Movement Continues

The HPRA report on medical cannabis has finally been released and it is very disappointing to say the least. While we appreciate this is a step in the right direction for Ireland, it is only a baby step and nowhere near enough.

“ The HPRA advises that cannabis should only be made available for the treatment of patients with specified medical conditions which have failed to respond to all other previous treatments, and where there is at least modest evidence that cannabis may be effective. Such patients should be under the direct supervision of an appropriately trained and experienced medical consultant. The specified medical conditions (medical indications) are:

1. Spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis resistant to all standard therapies and interventions whilst under expert medical supervision;
2. Intractable nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, despite the use of standard anti-emetic regimes whilst under expert medical supervision;
3. Severe, refractory (treatment-resistant) epilepsy that has failed to respond to standard anti-convulsant medications whilst under expert medical supervision”.

The government have now announced that you may be able to have access to medical cannabis, BUT only after you are pumped full of pharmaceutical drugs first and only if you fit into their criteria. The government will decide if you are sick enough to try this safe, effective medicine. Thousands of people in Ireland die every year from prescription medication while cannabis has been used safely for thousands of years. Ever since mankind has known cannabis not one single death or overdose has been recorded. Why is this fact being ignored?

Our hearts go out to the people that already know cannabis works and are having success illegally healing themselves. They will remain “criminals” because those we are supposed to rely on for our health and welfare haven’t done their jobs properly. Medical cannabis has not been legalised in Ireland. Patients will still be punished for using cannabis and they still face the worry of their homes being raided by authorities. They will still have to face court, convictions, fines and punishments just because of their health and lifestyle choices.

Countries that have legalised cannabis have seen a drop in prescription drug deaths, suicide rates have dropped and they have generated billions in tax. Youth usage has not increased and crime rates have also fallen. Treating cannabis users like criminals creates more problems for the individual and their families.

If you feel cannabis will or already does improve your quality of life then It is your fundamental human right to have safe access. It is down to the adult or patient to use cannabis responsibly. Talk to your doctor. Education is key for the cannabis movement.
