    Hi guys, this is the official blog on SAB!

  1. I'm a long time opiate survivor and I got sober then I was diagnosed with cancer and had to be treated with opiates no matter how much I refused I was basically told my life depended on it because I couldn't sleep because of pain, now I desperately need to get off it but am scared the trauma of withdrawals will unlock the cancer again as this is what happened last time I withdrew, of course drs won't listen. I'm currently looking into Ibogaine treatment, so any suggestions help experienced info would be very much appreciated.

  2. 4/20/2013 - Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell releases an Orangeburg man has been arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana.

    Ravenell explains "Federal officers and Investigators from the Sheriff's Office conducted an undercover investigation on Luis Tyler and observed him accept delivery of full-size video game with 55 pounds of marijuana hidden inside the machine on Tuesday, April 16. Officers conducted a traffic stop seizing the Pac-Man video game, the marijuana, and Tyler's vehicle."

  3. Hey yáll, Ive been a cactus/ succulent fanatic for years, and cannot ever truly stop learning more and obtaining more of them.

    plants I offer;

    -kalanchoe "mother plant" cuttings and rooted, two-five types

    -crested epiphyte (since died)

    -yellow opuntia microdasys monstrosa (spiraly type)

    -pereskia aculeata or grandiflora(or both)

    -possibly pereskiopsis as mine is not doing too well

    Recently planted Coleus Blumei seeds from two different sources, I've separated them by made-up strain names, Aztec and Mutant. Germination was quick taking a few days to pop up, lighting is indirect so some colour loss is expected.

    A couple of weeks in and they are already showing their differences in pattern and colour, the Aztec strain developed it almost immediately after the first true set of leaves appeared, whereas the mutant strain took a fair while longer.

    Snapshots will be taken at approximately 2 weeks apart,

    Aztec Strain, Coleus Blumei


    Mutant Strain, Coleus Blumei

    'Men who regularly drink coffee appear to have a lower risk of developing a lethal form of prostate cancer, according to a new study led by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. What's more, the lower risk was evident among men who drank either regular or decaffeinated coffee.

    "Few studies have specifically studied the association of coffee intake and the risk of lethal prostate cancer, the form of the disease that is the most critical to prevent. Our study is the largest to date to examine whether coffee could lower the risk of lethal prostate cancer," said senior author Lorelei Mucci, associate professor of epidemiology at HSPH. Lethal prostate cancer is cancer that causes death or spreads to the bones.

    The researchers chose to study coffee because it contains many beneficial compounds that act as antioxidants, reduce inflammation, and regulate insulin, all of which may influence prostate cancer. Coffee has been associated in prior studies with a lower risk of Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstone disease, and liver cancer or cirrhosis.'

    The study was published May 17, 2011, in an online edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.


  6. Hi Guys, i guess i´m a gonna use this feature a lot more in the future as it gives me the opportunity to show some of my crosses and newly produced seed. This year, i started growing lots of diffrent things and i´ll definately be able to give away some stuff to others in the future. Mostly down to earth botanicals like cacti, fruit trees and everything that has any value.

    First thing that might be interesting is the Rhododendron crossing experiments that i started this year! You can find the Thread here:

    Im pretty confident there will be lots of seed available in fall 2011 so please feel free to pm me if you want to trade against something else that might be interesting. The plant in the picture is exteremely frost and drought tolerant and survives in germany without almost any care. Very easy plant. See ya! bye Eg

    Unseasonably cool summer probably means they could be larger by now. Moving them somewhere warm and sheltered for their first winter.

    This blog is a growing log to document my first attempts at gardening; growing native and other plants from seeds and perhaps, in future; cuttings! Thus far, all of my seeds have been obtained from the following, reliable sources: Shaman-Australis Botanicals, Herbalistics and from the friendly lot on The Corroboree's Seed and Plant Exchange sub-forum.

    Last night i smoked some Calea and Mugwort before bed and this brought on a deep sleep and dreams. I should have written my dream down as I have forgotten most of it but I remember in this dream smelling some freshly baked bread and trying some. The smell and the taste were so real that in the moment I had lost track that I was in a dream and this was the best bread that I had ever had. Also in this dream had some ice cream that was among the best i'd tried but funnily enough not as good as the ice cream I had enjoyed at a certain gelateria up at Noosa. I don't know why my dream seemed to be largely about food but it was very realistic and it was the deepest and best sleep I had had in a long while. Tonight I would like to have another really deep dream if I can. Two of my favorite herbs for dreaming that I used last night, Calea and Mugwort are known dream herbs. Tonight in addition to just smoking I have a pot of tea brewing with a couple of large pinches of loose Mugwort herb and 2 heaped teaspoons of Calea. I have a fair bit to smoke and will do so while sipping the tea. I will go to bed right away.
