With the 2021 NFL Draft underway, the popularity of the league remains incredibly high. The draft, which began Thursday April 29th, 2021 and concludes on Saturday May 1st, 2021, begins the NFL careers of hundreds of young athletes. These athletes, fresh out of college, will be entering the NFL hoping to have fruitful careers with both athletic and financial success. Though the typical roadblocks to success in the NFL that come to mind are injury or lack of ability, there is another issue that has derailed a number of pro-football careers. Drug policy in the NFL has always been notoriously strict, with a number of players testing positive each season. One of the most common positive tests in the NFL is for marijuana, specifically THC. In an effort to grant its players more freedom, NFL marijuana testing policy will be drastically altered under the updated collective bargaining agreement.
Issues Caused By The NFL’s Outdated Marijuana Policy
NFL marijuana policy has long caused more problems for its players than it has solved. One of the more obvious stories that comes to mind is that of star running back Ricky Williams. Williams, a former Heisman Trophy winner who was drafted 5th overall, had his career interrupted several times by positive THC tests. After his first positive test, Williams decided to retire and study holistic medicine rather than paying a six figure fine and serving a four-game suspension.
Though he did return to football, Williams faced multiple other marijuana-related suspensions and was scapegoated throughout his career for his marijuana use, which was largely medicinal. Had Williams not been faced with marijuana-related career derailments, he very likely would be in the Hall of Fame. His story is a prime example of the damage that has been caused by a misguided and outdated view of marijuana. Williams is now an advocate for medical marijuana and has even started his own marijuana company.
Updated NFL Marijuana Policies
Though the drug policies that the NFL has forced players to adhere to for years have been incredibly strict, the changes being made this year do provide a breath of fresh air. The in-season threshold for a positive THC test has been 35 nanograms but will now be raised to 150 nanograms. Previously, the penalties for positive tests were harsh and ranged anywhere from a fine of two game checks to a full one-year ban from the league. Now, instead of immediately taking the route of punishment, the league will determine based on a player’s THC level if treatment may be needed. This player health focused approach is the right way to go and will most likely be welcomed by NFL players.
The league’s random drug testing period typically begins on April 20th (a total coincidence, not a joke) and runs through the beginning of training camp on August 9th. During this period, the NFL tests for anything from cocaine to performance enhancing drugs. One of the biggest changes to the NFL’s marijuana testing policy is that THC will no longer be tested for during this offseason period.
The changes being made to NFL marijuana testing policies will likely be welcomed by most in the league, players and team personnel alike. The policies should no longer seek to prevent players from using marijuana and punish them when they do. Instead, they will not lead to the demonization of players that consume marijuana to treat the many injuries caused by playing a violent game for a majority of their lives.

Cannabis Honey – The Benefit of Bees
With all the talk of the current devastation to the honeybee community, and the possible repercussions to humanity in general, it makes the small, buzzing creatures a rather important feature in our ecosystem. Honey, much like cannabis, provides all kinds of benefits to health and nutrition, and with a growing interest in cannabis honey, the two are coming together to create some of the best products on the market. If you were unaware of how cannabis and honey go together, read on.
The best thing to hit the world of cannabis isn’t shatter, or live resin, or even THC distillate. It’s delta-8 THC. Unlike delta-9 THC, the standard THC of marijuana, delta-8 THC actually produces slightly less psychoactive effect, causes less anxiety and paranoia, and provides a clear-headed, energetic high. It’s all the good stuff about THC, with less of the issues that cause people problems. If you’ve only heard about it, and never tried it, we’ve got great delta-8 THC deals so you can experience it for yourself.
A little bit about bees
The first thing to know about bees, is that they’re not all the same. When whizzing past your face, they may look the same, but a wasp, a yellowjacket, and a honeybee are all very different species of flying bug. We are most interested in honeybees. There are several types of honeybees, with the most common being Apis mellifera. This specific honeybee is also referred to as the European honeybee, or the Western Honeybee.
As social insects, honeybees reside together in hives, and actually have a pretty intricate communication system between them consisting of dancing movements, which can go in depth enough to explain to other bees exact locations of food sources, their size, and even quality. Each honeybee community has a queen bee, worker bees, and drone bees. Worker bees are female bees that never reach sexual maturity, with the queens being females that are bigger in size. Male bees are called drones.
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED DELTA 10 THC DISPOSABLE VAPES?
I could go on talking about the particulars of honeybees, but it’s not terribly important. Here are a few things that are. Bees require two kinds of food. The first is honey, which is made from nectar from flowers. The second is pollen, which comes from the anthers of a flower. This nectar and pollen is individual to each species of flower, and each flower within the species. Most bees will only collect one or the other, pollen or nectar. While collecting, nectar gets stored in a stomach specifically for nectar, from which it is transferred to other bees in the hive to use for honey production. This is separate from the bee’s own regular stomach, however, a valve exists between the two so that the bee can use some of the nectar for energy if needed.
The honey is produced by the bees passing the nectar from mouth to mouth until the water in it has evaporated out – going from approximately 70% to 20%. The result is a concentrated syrup, honey. The honey is then stored within the cells of the honeycomb with a layer of beeswax on top. Pollen has a different purpose. Pollen is mixed with the pre-honey nectar to create ‘bee bread’. This high protein food is then fed to larvae, which require such high protein levels to survive and grow. When looking at the difference between pollen and nectar, pollen is high in protein and also contains fats and other nutrients for growth, whereas nectar contains sugars, salts, oils, and vitamins.
