May you R.I.P
I was just informed that Glen Brown passed away this morning.
Born in Kingston, Brown began his musical career in the 1960s as vocalist with Sonny Bradshaw's jazz group, subsequently recording duets with Hopeton Lewis, Lloyd Robinson and Dave Barker for producers such as Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd.[2][3] In the early 1970s, he began working as a producer, initially for the Shalimar label,[3] and recorded Augustus Pablo-influenced melodica tracks,[5] such as 1972's "Merry Up".[6] He also recorded for Prince Buster, Leslie Kong, and Derrick Harriott. He formed two record labels; Pantomime (or Pantomine), and South East Music, and produced tracks by U Roy, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, I-Roy, Prince Jazzbo, Johnny Clarke, Lloyd Parks, and Little Roy. Due to low funds, his early releases were pressed in limited runs,[3] but have since become more widely available on various compilations, such as The Way To Mount Zion (featuring material from the 1969-1976 period), and Termination Dub (featuring material recorded with King Tubby between 1973 and 1979). Although he had fewer hits in the latter half of the 1970s, he maintained his profile with hits from the likes of Wayne Jarrett and Sylford Walker.[2]
In 2000, Small Axe and Terminal Head remixed Brown's work for a single release that included remixes of fellow reggae artist, Yabby You.[1]. In 2002, Glen Brown's single produced by Ras Kush, "We Dem A Watch," was the first release on New York's Black Redemption label.[7]
In July 2013 Brown was reported to be in a New York nursing home, suffering from renal failure, diabetes, loss of vision, dementia, and a heart condition.[1] Like many Jamaican musicians, he has not benefitted greatly from sales of his recordings, limiting the treatment that he can receive.[1]

Listened to "Dub from the South East" while trimming herb this weekend. Classic tunes from way back. Got the vinyl a bit sticky. Like the music. Respect.

That CBD flower looks really attractive. 20(cbd):1(thc)

For the last year or so, I've decarbed lbs of CBD flower/shake(Suver Haze).
Place the decarbed material in single 200mg capsules, and dose a cap two times per day.. or more as needed.

Before my workouts, I used to slam 800mg of ibuprofen.
Since I've been capping my own decarb'd flower, I havent touched a bottle of ibuprofen.
Long gone are my daytime 'power naps' and also long gone are my pre-workout ibuprofen doses.
Coupled with a zero-carb diet, inflammation markers have gone down, and my cardio endurance has skyrocketed.

Every morning upon waking, I pour a tablespoon of MCT oil, and down that with a single 200mg capsule of my decarbed flower... at 15-20% CBD, that yields about 30-40mg per cap. THC is probably less than 1mg.. but it's enough to get my mind right, and sooth my aches..

I've tried CBD isolate, in a tincture carrier, from some online vender, and felt zip(no pun).

I then decided to buy flower and make my own CBD 'medicine'
Full spectrum combined with terps is the only way to go..

So yeah... as you say, 'good stuff.'

Just seeing this now. Wow! Heartbreaking! South East Music and Pantomine…. reggae music quite simply would not be what it is today without this man. Rest in power.
