Rick Simpson Oil or RSO is named after a Canadian medical marijuana activist known for sharing a simple method for extracting oils from cannabis. He was motivated to share his technique after using cannabis oil to cure his own skin cancer. Since then, many have used cannabis oil in combination with lifestyle and diet changes to put their stage 4 cancer into remission.
Rick Simpson Oil is dark in color and usually stored in syringes for easy dosing by mouth.
Terpenes give cannabis plants their unique flavours and smells. Research now shows that they may also play a role for the effects of each strain, so we take a look at what they are and how they work.
‘Smart city’ is a buzzword, a term that is still quite a fuzzy concept and is used in a variety of ways. Definitions range from the simple city that “has digital technology embedded across all city functions” (Smart Cities Council) to the more detailed city that “brings together technology, government and society to enable the following characteristics: smart cities, a smart economy, smart mobility, a smart environment, smart people, smart living, smart governance” (IEEE Smart Cities). We asked Guus Derks of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency for his take on smart cities.

Many of cannabinoids have therapeutic value and CBD is no exception.

THC and CBD are different compounds that are found in marijuana.
Marijuana contains over 113 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. These compounds interact with our bodies via the endocannabinoid system.
The two most well-known cannabinoids are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). For decades, researchers have known that THC is responsible for the famous cannabis high. But until recently, very little was known about the effects of CBD. We now know that CBD can serve to balance the effects of THC, and provides a range of symptom relief and medical potential.
Here, we explore the major differences between THC and CBD.
The problem: Setup a virtual TLD (.dev) on Ubuntu with Apache Virtual Hosts and DNSMasq
For a development area I wanted to setup a virtual TLD (Top Level Domain) that would enable all underlying domains. Be careful; this will disable DNS lookup and will make the existing domains unavailable. So choose a TLD that does not exist in real life. For this tutorial we use .dev . The goal is to point all .dev domains to a local directory. My usecase is that I develop multiple sites from the same codebase. I pickup the domain name with php and load the site that is requested.
When the cities that we live in today were build, we did not have access to the technology that we have nowadays. Therefore the question is; How can we make our cities healthier, safer and more pleasant to live in? In my point of view; Smart Cities is a mean to instead realise these goals of a goal in itself.

Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, has generated significant interest among scientists and physicians in recent years—but how CBD exerts its therapeutic impact on a molecular level is still being sorted out. Cannabidiol is a pleiotropic drug in that it produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. The scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD.
Here's the original article, as posted on RXLEAF.com: https://www.rxleaf.com/post/8135/the-power-to-treat-serious-pain-rests-in-two-terpenes-caryophyllene-and-myrcene
When you are looking for the right strain for your chronic pain, you must consider these terpenes.
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of cannabis strains can be attributed to the presence of two terpenes: β-caryophyllene and β-myrcene.
The problem; adding audio http streams to TVHeadend to be able to run them on KODI
I wanted to pickup http streams in KODI. This can be done directly offcourse, but they will not show up in the "Radio" section of KODI. This because the "Radio" section is a view of the radio stations offered by the PVR. I want to do this, because at our home we use Music Pump as a remote and I want to add radiostations in a consistent way, so that the rest of the family does also accept this setup. The problem is, TVHeadend only recognises MPEG-TS streams, and no aac, mp3 etc. This means we have to convert it.
