cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids(manufactured artificially). The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant. There are at least 113 different cannabinoids isolated from cannabis, exhibiting varied effects. ~ Wikipedia

WSL’s Mavericks Challenge Window Reopens 1/3/2019
ARTICLE / PHOTOS. Mavericks Season. Here is the Surfline forecast for Mavericks this weekend. Look for Big swell, from west with low wind.
Contest is off until the holiday blackout period ends on January 3. But come on down and walk the beach and the bluffs and cheer on the big wave surfers.

Rip Currents 101 ~ Mavericks Big Wave Season

VIDEO. Watch for sneaker waves like the 2010 Mavericks Contest wave. Share these Rip Current videos with your friends who like to go to the Beach.

Local CERT trainer, Michelle Dragony, has curated 3 videos that will bring you up to speed.

If you see someone who is not paying attention, or does not seem to understand the danger, do take the time, to gently nudge them with the fact that at least one person dies every year at our beaches. Sneaker waves are an unanticipated coastal wave that is much greater in force and height than the waves preceding it.

Drowning can happen with one wave.

Bedtime Stories ~ ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

PODCAST. ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas was recorded on December 12th, 2016 by Michelle Dragony who hopes everyone has a very Merry Christmas Day!!

One of the oldest and most popular Christmas poems ever, commonly referred to as “Twas The Night Before Christmas,” was written in the early 19th century.

“Though its author is disputed, with the poem being attributed to both Clement Clarke Moore and Henry Livingston Jr. over the years, it was definitely first published on Dec. 23, 1823 in the Troy Sentinel newspaper in upstate New York.

It is also referred to as “A Visit From St. Nicholas” or “The Night Before Christmas.”

Below are the original lyrics to the poem (see how the poem looked in the Troy Sentinel here)”
