Greetings,

Hope everyone came out of the Holiday weekend okay. One last 420 before I move on in another musical direction.

Things you may not know and I didn’t tell you during the 20 Days of Cannabis

  • Adolph Hitler’s birthday – Apr. 20th (1889)
  • Bay of Pigs attack – Apr. 20th (1961)
  • Columbine High School Massacre – Apr. 20th (1999)
  • Deep Water Horizon catastrophe – Apr. 20th (2010)

Nevermind…

I have been doing Smile Jamaica Reggae Radio since Oct. ’89; under George “Ganja” Bush the Elder’s term. History degrees and working in a Research Library also from about ’88’-89.

So I combine my “vocation with my avocation” through little segments I like to call Reggae History Lessons. I am going to add a category of these short sound clips from the Ark-Ive Edition podcasts and a description.

Here is what I “harvested” (pun intended) from the Apr. 19: 20th Annual Cannabis Service Show:

Cannabis History Lessons (4/19/2014 Ark-Ive of Smile Jamaica) ; #1

Kif – Author Paul Bowles, who lived in North Africa, talks to the kif seller. I said, “Kif. From the Arabic kayaf. “To make high”. The sticky trichomes that shake loose from buds and are pressed into bricks of hash in Morocco and North Africa” (53:46-54:31 on sound file)

 Cannnabis History Lesson #2:

Sensimilla – From the Spanish “without seeds”. Buds without seeds have higher potency or so I’ve heard.  I laugh sometimes at the grocery store when I see watermelon labeling in spanish “Sandia sinsemillas”. Seedless. Makes sensi to me! (54:56 in sound file)

Cannabis History Lesson #3: Lambsbread

I said, “a type of flavor in Jamaica so called because of the fluffy nature of the buds on the stalk looked like a lamb’s tail. From lamb’s tail to lamb’s breath to lambsbread.
