CONGRATULATIONS – 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS WINNERS!

XMAS WIN BLOG

 

It’s over and, apart from the mess that Facebook made of the competition, it was a huge success. We enjoyed tons of entries and all the breeders’ pages had an overwhelming boost in likes, comments & shares from the Gorilla Army. Well done, guys!

Unfortunately, we had to end the comp prematurely at day 8. The remaining prize list will be dealt with at a later date. We still need to honour the remaining breeders by giving them a decent promotion as promised, and we need a larger following to do that.

LET’S NOT DWELL ON THE NEGATIVE AND GET DOWN TO THE BRASS TACKS AND THE FUTURE!

We asked you to jump through a few more hoops than usual this time. Using the “sign up for free shit feature” had a few bugs if you used a mobile device, so we have taken the data collected and included some wins from that, too. We only asked you to do this for day 12, but as the comp is over at day 8, it’s only fair we include those that took part.

THE WINNERS ARE

DAY 1 ROYAL QUEEN SEEDS – ANDREW TEDDY PERRY UK

DAY 2 FEMALE SEEDS – PATRICK CHALIFOX USA

DAY 3 ADVANCED FEMALE SEEDS – MARTIN RAINSFORD IRELAND

DAY 4 HELLS CANYON GENETICS – JESSICA LEE ANN STEWART USA

A MASSIVE THANKYOU TO ALL THE BREEDERS THAT TOOK PART

PLEASE NOTE

We will honour the rest of the days as soon as we can get our Facebook page strong again. The breeders have donated a lot of seeds and deserve our best efforts. Please be assured this will be done as soon as possible.

We have lots more upcoming competitions and promos scheduled for 2016. The current mess on Facebook has already pushed us behind schedule and we won’t compromise by rushing through our promotions – they are the best about and we don’t plan on changing that!

Facebook won’t allow us to notify you through Facebook! So you must contact us directly by PM or email us at [email protected]. We will need your full postage details and include the day number and breeder you won in the heading. This will help us find you quickly.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

This won’t be the traditional 12 days of Christmas. We may skip a day or even take a day off if we have a rough night. Plus, Big G needs to unwrap his own gifts, peel the potatoes, carve the turkey and nurse his hangovers too! We will give away all 12 gifts at the end of the holiday period. It’s gonna be super busy but we hope to get them all done early in the New Year.

The 12th day will be a very special multiple breeder gift and will include lots of seeds and goodies!

Read this very carefully or you will lose out*

  1. Like, share & comment on both the Gorillas daily competition post and the breeder’s Facebook page. You MUST like, share & comment on the breeder’s page too. Obviously, we would like to see a thank you on breeders pages so they’ll give us more seeds to hand out in 2016.
  2.  

  3. It’s also best to sign up “for free shit” you can see this under our timeline banner on a PC. If you’re using a mobile device – email [email protected] so we can add you manually. You will only ever need to do this one time. Some winners will be chosen from the list.

*All entrants will be verified. Don’t just comment on the post – you won’t win!

Bonus 12th day Prize

Enter every day PLUS THE 12th DAY and a BIG PRIZE can be yours. This will be a mix of seeds from the previous 11 days and will include some really nice gifts from The Gorilla himself.

That’s it! It couldn’t be simpler. We won’t tell you what’s coming until it’s posted on Facebook, but there are 500 seeds, t-shirts, grinders, keyrings, stickers and a shit load more. Winners will be announced at the end of the competition – make sure you enter every day!

Gorilla loves giving you cannabis seeds, especially for Christmas. Just because they’re a gift doesn’t change the fact they’re for collection only. You can do whatever you want with them as long as you don’t get them intentionally wet. In fact, they’d probably prosecute you for wetting them by mistake!

Santa’s little helpers will steal these weed seeds too! We will ship them by recorded delivery, but just because your postie or customs guy wears a Christmassy hat, doesn’t mean he’s a nice guy or lover of da ganja with sticky fingers. If they go missing, we will help you trace them with the delivery numbers, but that’s as far as we can help! Competition seeds are excluded from The Gorilla’s guaranteed delivery service.

University of Vermont to Hold Class on Pharmacology of Cannabis

vermont

This is a first, but hopefully not the last, official course at an accredited US university that will delve into the science behind the medical benefits of marijuana.

Officially called Pharm 372: Medical Cannabis, this class use several professors, each recognized experts in their respective fields, to cover the following topics:

  • History of Marijuana Use & Current Laws & Policies
  • The Chemistry of Cannabis & How the Brain’s Cannabinoid Receptors are Affected
  • The Properties of Different Strains of Cannabis
  • The Human Body’s Responses to THC
  • THC’s Toxicology as Compared to Other Drugs

Enrollment has already started for the first session being held during the Spring 2016 semester, just weeks away, and the class is almost full. In addition to upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, the roll is expected to include some doctors, police officers and legislatures.

Unlike some other “cannabis colleges” that have operated outside of the accredited educational system, the professors teaching this class plan to take a no-nonsense approach to the subject, just like it was any other pharmacology topic, separating the science from the current social and political aspects of weed as well as eliminating any stigma.

To assist with the class, an new text book will be developed that other schools may be able to use and the participating professors are considering the development of a shorter class designed for physicians who are interested in the topic as part of a continuing education program.

Humboldt Seeds and Kit Giveaway

HUMBOLDT BLOG

 

While we’re getting ready for the massive 12 Days of Christmas giveaway, we’re running this quick Humboldt competition to help us test a new email signup feature we’re using for Facebook comps. This will help us keep offering you the best comps on the Internet, not just Facebook!

It will also help you in the future by allowing us to send you details on the next competition directly to your inbox. If this works, it will be a MUST to be a Gorilla winner in the future.

We won’t give out any of the details you provide to anyone else and we won’t spam you every day with our discounts, new breeders/strains or BOGOF offers. We may, however, send you a monthly newsletter at some point in the future with links to a blog or something else you can read at your leisure, but you’ll be able to opt out at any time or let it go to your spam folder.

It’s no big deal and only a few extra clicks, so give it a try & help us out!
