Medical marijuana plants growing in Maryland
BALTIMORE (AP) – The first legal crop of marijuana has started to grow in Maryland. And industry officials say products should be available in medical marijuana dispensaries by 2018.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that at least two licensed cultivators have marijuana plants growing. They are ForwardGro in Anne Arundel County and Curio Wellness in Baltimore County.
The cannabis seeds have been planted four years after Maryland legalized the plant for medical use. Since then, nearly 20 companies have been cleared to grow, process and sell the plant.
The marijuana will be harvested and taken to an independent laboratory for quality testing. Some will be processed into oils, creams and capsules.
Patrick Jameson, executive director of the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission, said “the market will determine how this moves forward.”
Marijuana Seeds in Maryland
Since marijuana seeds are classed as an adult novelty item in Maryland, you’re free to purchase these kinds of seeds – however, you might only be able to use them if you’re registered as a medical marijuana recipient. In these cases, you’ll be able to use prepared Cannabis products to help with a number of ailments and issues; such as PTSD, anorexia, chronic pain, and more.
While you might not be permitted to grow and use the plants in this state, you won’t be doing anything wrong by owning their seeds – and since we properly pack each and every one, you’ll be able to display them, store them ready to use when you’re out of state, or even give them to a friend or family member without having to worry about them staying fresh.

The difference between CBD and THC
Many individuals across the U.S are switching to Cannabis to help them manage and even overcome health issues and other problems, which is one of the main reasons why medical weed was introduced.
CBD (Cannabidiol) seeds often enhance the health properties of Cannabis, whilst reducing the level of psychoactive compounds found within the plants (namely Tetrahydrocannabinol). Since this is the composite that causes the unwanted side effects found within illegal cannabis strains, the medicinal plants can be a great option for those who want to experience the health benefits of weed, without the negative issues that THC can cause.
Without the psychoactive affects that the drug has become well known for, countless people have experienced a range of benefits with the use of cannabis.
Can marijuana use reduce nausea?
Cannabis, both the medical kind and the regular form, contain a number of medicinal properties; although enhanced strains will work to improve specific ailments. Because of this, different seeds are often able to help with a range of different issues, including nausea. While marijuana can be used to manage the symptoms of cancer treatment and ease chronic pains, many individuals are finding that it can be great for alleviating feelings of sickness, too.
One of the most notable strains we offer that can help those who are feeling nauseous is the Jack Herer seed – and alongside a number of other useful effects, it’s not hard to see why so many people choose this strain of weed.

The Cyber Threat
Malicious cyber activity threatens the public’s safety and our national and economic security. The FBI’s cyber strategy is to impose risk and consequences on cyber adversaries. Our goal is to change the behavior of criminals and nation-states who believe they can compromise U.S. networks, steal financial and intellectual property, and put critical infrastructure at risk without facing risk themselves. To do this, we use our unique mix of authorities, capabilities, and partnerships to impose consequences against our cyber adversaries.
The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating cyber attacks and intrusions. We collect and share intelligence and engage with victims while working to unmask those committing malicious cyber activities, wherever they are.

Combating the Evolving Cyber Threat
Our adversaries look to exploit gaps in our intelligence and information security networks. The FBI is committed to working with our federal counterparts, our foreign partners, and the private sector to close those gaps.
These partnerships allow us to defend networks, attribute malicious activity, sanction bad behavior, and take the fight to our adversaries overseas. The FBI fosters this team approach through unique hubs where government, industry, and academia form long-term trusted relationships to combine efforts against cyber threats.
Within government, that hub is the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force (NCIJTF). The FBI leads this task force of more than 30 co-located agencies from the Intelligence Community and law enforcement. The NCIJTF is organized around mission centers based on key cyber threat areas and led by senior executives from partner agencies. Through these mission centers, operations and intelligence are integrated for maximum impact against U.S. adversaries.
Only together can we achieve safety, security, and confidence in a digitally connected world.
