Cannabis Ice Tea Review : Strange Products in Europe


C-ICE Swiss Cannabis Ice Tea is made of black tea with 5% hemp bloom syrup, and 0.0015% hemp bloom extract.

Promotional materials show a marijuana leaf and the slogan, “Feel Free” and “Drink It”.

However, the manufacturer doesn’t at all promote the low levels of THC in the hemp-based product. Instead, they seem to market it as a health drink, making claims that Cannabis…

…supports ideally the new formation of cells of the human body. Thus they serve preservation and stabilization of the immune system and decrease susceptibility in relation to many sticking on diseases.

Hemp is found in everything from your natural foods market to your favorite clothing store.  So, C+ Swiss Hemp Ice Tea should have a mass appeal, but the big pot leaf on the front makes this a super-hard sell. That is a real shame, as this is one of the best Iced Tea drinks I have had in a long while!

Regardless if you are a recreational pot smoker or a conservative republican politician (not that those 2 things are mutually exclusive), this drink has amazing health benefits, amazing taste, and is completely legal.

Hemp Tea Ingredients/Energy

There is nothing here that you would not want in your body. Everything is natural and delicious, and the caffeine rush from the black tea is strong and natural. This is non-carbonated, using hemp bloom syrup (5 %), plain old sugar, lemon juice, black tea extract and hemp bloom extract (0.0015 %)”, and the little tiny THC extract goes a long long way.

This really has the flavor of pot, but completely adds to the flavor of the tea. Everything in this tastes natural, delicious, and unique. In terms of energy, I would expect about 80-100mg in the small can, about as much as you would find in 8oz of strong black tea.  There is 90 calories in here from plain sugar.

Poland to build watchtowers along with Russia’s Kaliningrad border


Poland has reacted to reports that Russia is sending the missiles to its exclave of Kaliningrad by building observation towers on its border.

Poland will build six watchtowers to survey its 200-kilometre-long border with the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, border police have said.

They will cost more than 14 million złoty (3.7 million euros, $3.8 million), Mirosława Aleksandrowicz said, adding that 75% of the amount would come from an EU fund for external borders.

The six towers will be up to 50 metres (164 feet) high and ready in June for round-the-clock surveillance, the spokeswoman for Poland’s border police told the PAP news agency.

Kaliningrad is near the Baltic Sea, sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania, both EU members. Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaitė said last month that Russia had sent nuclear-capable Iskander missiles to Kaliningrad, which could “reach even Berlin”.

Russia’s seizure and annexation of Crimea, support for separatists in eastern Ukraine and stepped-up military drills have caused unease in the Baltic states and Poland, which lay behind the Iron Curtain a quarter of a century ago.

More than three million Russians and an equal number of Poles passed through border posts to heavily militarised Kaliningrad last year. Source: Theguardian.com

Israël a accueilli deux fois plus de juifs de France en 2014//France now leading source of immigration to Israel


Source: leparisien.fr

L’émigration de Juifs de France vers Israël a plus que doublé sur les dix premiers mois de 2014 par rapport à la même période de 2013, a indiqué jeudi l’Agence juive en France, qui fait état de 6237 départs au 31 octobre, contre 2555 un an plus tôt.

Au total, entre 6500 et 7000 «Sarfati» (Français en hébreu) devraient avoir fait leur aliyah («montée» vers Israël) sur toute l’année 2014, contre 3300 en 2013.

La France est en tête des pays d’émigration vers Israël cette année, une première qui jette une lumière crue sur ses causes, selon la communauté juive: une économie française en berne et la résurgence des actes antisémites comme la récente agression à Créteil (Val-de-Marne). Mais tout ne sera pas rose sur place car l’économie israélienne souffre elle aussi notamment après la guerre de l’été à Gaza et la campagne d’attentats à Jérusalem.

Un flux de départs historique

Entre 500 000 et 600 000 Juifs vivent en France, ce qui en fait la première communauté juive d’Europe, et la troisième mondiale derrière Israël et les Etats-Unis. «Dans le monde occidental ou libre, voir 1% d’une communauté juive qui fait son aliyah en un an, ça n’a jamais eu lieu», avait estimé en septembre le précédent directeur de l’Agence juive en France, Ariel Kandel, en soulignant que les Juifs sont «dix fois plus nombreux» aux Etats-Unis que dans l’Hexagone.

L’émigration juive de France en 2014 devrait représenter un quart de l’aliyah totale sur l’année, estimée à quelque 25.000 personnes, selon son successeur à la tête de l’Agence juive, un organisme paragouvernemental israélien, à Paris. Le directeur de l’Agence juive en France précise que ses chiffres sont «inférieurs à la réalité» car ils ne prennent pas en compte les migrants, certes très minoritaires, qui font leur changement de statut directement en Israël, sans passer par ses services à Paris.

France now leading source of immigration to Israel

Source: haaretz.com

France for the first time since the founding of Israel is the leading source of immigration to the Jewish State, the Jewish Agency for Israel announced Friday.

Some 4,566 French immigrants arrived in Israel from January through August 31, surpassing Russia, with 2,632 immigrants, and Ukraine, with 3,252 immigrants. The figure represents a 25-year high for immigration to Israel from France.

“France is today the leading country for Jewish emigration to Israel. It has never been before,” said Ariel Kandel, the Jewish Agency’s emissary in Paris.

The Jewish Agency is the quasi-governmental agency responsible for organizing Jewish immigration to Israel.

”We will get close to 6,000 departures from France in 2014,” said Kandel. He attributed the rise to a “climate of anti-Semitism that is losing its taboo” as well as economic difficulties in France, which is suffering from zero growth and record high unemployment.”

The United States, whose Jewish population is more than 10 times that of France, has sent 2,218 new immigrants to Israel so far this year.

The figures were published on September 1 by Israel’s Ministry of Immigrant Absorption. The number of French immigrants in 2014 is the highest on record since 1989 and already has surpassed last year’s record-breaking number of 3,263 French newcomers. In 2004, another banner year for French aliyah, there were 2,948 French immigrants to Israel.

Between 1989 and 2013, an average of 1,943 French immigrants arrived in Israel per year.

Immigration from Ukraine – where government troops are fighting pro-Russian separatists in a conflict that has produced thousands of casualties and tens of thousands of displaced persons – also increased dramatically this year.

The 3,252 immigrants who came to Israel from Ukraine since January constituted a 61-percent increase over the 1,270 Ukrainian immigrants who arrived in Israel during the corresponding months last year.
