Jake the Professor Twenty22Many

  It was an Extreme honor to be welcomed by Patrick Saint and the Twenty22Many at their first Annual fund raiser. Patrick ask me to be his invited guest. A huge honor indeed. The Twenty22Many raised money through an art auction Twenty22Many is a Veterans group born out of the old Medical Marijuana Collective model proceeding recreational cannabis in Washington state. Patrick Saint and the other volunteer veterans continue to help American Veterans by bringing awareness the extremely high suicide rates among our military veterans. Patrick became aware of the 22 daily suicides reported from the VA in 2013 is life’s mission would be set in a new direction. It is reported that 22 daily suicides occur daily in America, it became clear to Patrick and his group of Veteran volunteers, help was needed from our new Washington State recreational cannabis community. Born of need and necessity, Patrick and the all veteran volunteer group set out to develop a program the Washington State i502 Recreational Cannabis Shops can participate in. Twenty22Many Veteran Support Depot Program Veteran Support Depot, in short will offer a safe haven and access to resources and help from participating i502 Retail shops. Most importantly if a veteran walks through their door in need of anything they Will be given a flyer with valuable contact information on it and Twenty22many will promptly dispatch another veteran volunteer to be able to get resources to that veteran in need… essentially opening up little Veteran hubs all over the state in an attempt to service veterans needs from our cannabis community. I am a military family member growing up. I have a Father and a Sister who served in the armed forces. This is why I was especially excited to join Twenty22Many at Heylo Cannabis Extractions in Sodo Seattle. Heylo Cannabis Extraction host several cannabis industry events at their i502 Cannabis Processing business. There were several Industry leaders in attendance. I was humbled to be in such great company. We started off with an art auction. The featured artist attending was the arrest, Adream. Adream work is so detailed and inspiring. These works are like DMT meet LSD they are both colorful and spiritual in some mystical way. We loved Adream and the spirit and enlightenment he demonstrates in his work and in his presents. Earlier in the day, I attended a glass blowing event earlier, hosted by Weekend Unlimited and Jerome Baker Designs and Leafly. Jason Harris of JBD Glass so graciously donated a wonderful JBD bong to Patrick and the Twenty22Many. It was also my extreme honor to present Patrick with a Challenge Coin. In the military, challenge coins are often offered to visiting dignitaries or guest of a unit or platoon. This particular coin was given to me by a Four Star General “Skip” Dreps a well known Veterans advocate who works with the Disabled Veterans of the Pacific Northwest. General Dreps is a good friend of Jake The Professor. General Dreps always jumps at the chance to help his fellow brothers in arms. I want to encourage all the recreational cannabis dispensaries to consider what you and your crew can do to help these brave men and woman who served our US Military. Patrick Saint and the Twenty22Many need our help and support to carry out this very important mission. We can work together to reduce suicide rates within the Veterans community. Please reach out to Twenty22Many in Olympia to participate in this life saving program. Thank you Heylo Canbabis Extractions the Space Shuttle and Twenty22Many for hosting such an important, bringing awareness, type of gathering to help us understand the needs of the veterans community and offering us an opportunity help. The mission of the Twenty22Many, “By All Means Necessary – End Veteran Suicide” Thank you Twenty22Many for inviting me to such a wonderful Cannabis industry event with purpose. Thank You. Jake the Professor

HOW TO MAKE HEMP JEWELRY

These instructions will teach you how to make a basic piece of hemp jewelry. Depending on the length of your jewelry, you can either make a bracelet or a necklace.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Picture of Materials
Picture of Materials

1. Hemp twine –
2. Large Metal binder clip –
3. Heavy object to weigh down your piece (free weight or pile of books)
4. Scissors –
5. Flat surface (table)

Step 2: Getting Started

1. Cut one piece of hemp, about 7 feet long.

2. Cut a shorter piece of hemp, a little over twice as long as the length of the jewelry you want to make. An example of the two pieces is above.

Step 3: Getting Started (Cont’d)

Fold both pieces in half, with the smaller length in the center of the longer length. Both halves should be symmetrical. Hold the two pieces together in the center.

Step 4: Making the Initial Loop

Picture of Making the Initial Loop

Where the fold in the hemp is, place your finger. With your finger on the inside of the U-shaped fold, grab the excess hemp as if it were one string. You should be holding a simple loop like the one pictured below.

Step 5: The Overhand Knot

Tie off the loop as if you were tying a shoe. This is also called an overhand knot. The size of the loop should be small enough to fit snug around your index finger. Use the video for reference.

Step 6: Setting Up Your Work Station

1. Now that the loop is established with the knot, you can begin the necklace. Weigh down the loop part with a heavy object such as a free weight. You will need to pull the hemp tightly during the creation.

2. The ideal place to do this is on a desk. The loop of the hemp should be held down with the weight (Where the finger is pointing). On the end opposite of the weight, fasten down the hemp to the edge of the table. Fastening it down with a metal binder clip is the best method.

3. After these steps, the short piece of hemp should be tightly fastened to the desk and the two long pieces should be free on each side. For your reference, the picture below gives an overhead view of the hemp not fastened down so it is easier for you to see the shorter pieces in the middle and the long pieces free on each side.

Step 7: Begin Weaving 1st Knot

To begin weaving, take the hemp on the right side (red) and fold it over the center pieces, but under the long piece on the left side (blue).

Step 8: Weaving 1st Knot

Picture of Weaving 1st Knot

1. Take the long piece on the left side (blue), which now has the hemp from the right underneath it, and run it under the center pieces and through the loop that the long piece on the right (red) made from the previous step. It should come out of the loop that the piece on the right made. Pull tight on both pieces.

2. After pulling both strings tight, the first knot should form after the initial loop. Now you will see the same set up as you had before you made this knot (two short strings in middle, long strings on each side).

Step 9: 2nd Knot

Picture of 2nd Knot
Picture of 2nd Knot

The second knot is the same as the first, except you start with the left string (blue) crossing over to the right side (red). With the string on the left side, cross over the two center strings, and under the string on the right.

Step 10: 2nd Knot

Picture of 2nd Knot
Picture of 2nd Knot

Now cross the right side string (red) under the center pieces and up through the loop on the left (blue). Pull tight, and this is the second knot. The next knot will be the same as the first (Steps 7 & 8). Continue to alternate knots until you are satisfied with the length of your jewelry.

You can add beads, stones, and charms. Get creative!

*After this step, go back and repeat steps 7 through 10 until you reach your desired length of jewelry.

Step 11: Finishing the Piece

Once you have reached your desired length of jewelry, you need to tie off the excess. To finish the piece, tie a knot with the excess hemp at the end of your jewelry. You may want to double or triple knot this, depending on how big you made your loop. You want the knot to fit through the loop at the beginning. This will fasten the jewelry onto your neck or wrist. After tying the knot, cut off the excess with a scissors.
