Fourth Species of Marijuana?

fourth-species-of-marijuana-possibly-foundWhile new strains of the cannabis plant pop up daily, there are only three species of the plant that have been known to us this far. However, scientists in Australia think that they have stumbled upon a new type of cannabis plant, deep in the Blue Mountains. The scientists say that while the plant underwent many tests in order to prove it’s relation, it looks nothing like the cannabis plant when it comes to the leaves. The plant somewhat resembles cannabis and that’s why it was turned over by the hikers who found it to the scientists. 
After the tests were done, the results showed the the species is resistant to freezing temperatures and grows more like a shrub, without the shape of most cannabis plants. According to researcher Christopher Pool, countless cannabis breeders have been offering up to $2,000 per seed but the issue is that there are no seeds. “We only have one plant,” Pool said. “We’ve exhausted our funding trying to find another like it.” With a bleak outlook on finding another one of these mysterious cousins of cannabis, it is unsure whether another plant will even be found that is the same kind. After searching the area around the plant, there were no more to be found. Considering that seeds can be moved quiet easily through nature, the seed could’ve come from a bird dropping, wind, or other means. The rest of this species could be hundreds of miles away in a different location.
So even though stoners everywhere are clamoring to get their hands on the new species of cannabis that’s out there, it may be some time before we get some crazy couch locking plant that’s nothing like what we’ve been smoking. It will take a while for scientists to comb through the mountains to find a new one, if they even do. The seed could have come from miles away and not even be native to that part of the continent. While the new mystery plant remains shrouded in smoke, we’ll keep our fingers crossed for some beast species of marijuana to be stuck inside of our jars some day soon.

Grape Ape - Indica

Wide purple leaves cover the Grape Ape marijuana plant, surrounding some of the world's most unique buds. The leaves, stems, stalks and buds are coated with a thick layer of THC crystals and these lovely ladies give off a strong smell of grape. You'll also notice some very nice undertones of skunkiness. The nuggets, when cared for properly, are tight and dense. They are super sticky and make you feel guilty for placing your fat little fingers on them directly.

Former NFL Players Want Research For Marijuana And Brain Injuries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 27th 2015 by THCFinder
nfl-players-want-brain-injury-researchNumerous NFL Players have experienced brain injuries during their careers. There have been many tragic stories in recent years about how the NFL didn’t do enough to educate and warn players about what repeated injuries could do to their brains. There have been a number of studies suggesting that medical marijuana can help people with brain injuries recover and heal. The NFL of course frowns upon all things marijuana, which is something that former NFL players want to see changed. Per New York Daily News:
In a column posted Monday on The Huffington Post, the three NFL retirees urge commissioner Roger Goodell and the league to finance research pot’s effectiveness in treating traumatic head injuries.
First and foremost, the NFL should allocate financial resources to advance medical research on the efficacy of medical marijuana in treating brain injuries. In the case of trauma, a lot of inflammation occurs, which affects cognitive functioning and neural connectivity. A compound in marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) has shown scientific potential to be an antioxidant and neuroprotectant for the brain. In a sport where closed head injuries are common, the league should be doing everything it can to help keep their players healthy during and after their careers. If the NFL wants to continue to grow its game, it must investigate potential medical solutions for its industrial disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Even the federal government holds a patent on marijuana for this purpose.
Washington, Ayanbadejo and Fujita also call for the league to abandon drug testing and punishing players for the use of marijuana, as well as take a “leadership role” in addressing racial disparities in marijuana law enforcement and other problems caused by the War on Drugs.
The NFL does not have any valid reasons for why they prohibit any consumption of marijuana, medical or recreational. All players have a lot of aches and pains, in addition to some experiencing brain injuries. If they want to use marijuana to help them deal with those ailments, they should be allowed to do so. An NFL player can get as drunk as they want off the field, so they should also be allowed to use marijuana if they want, because after all, marijuana is much safer.

Blackberry Kush - Indica

Blackberry Kush is a mostly Indica Kush with a strong blackberry smell and pink and red hairs. It truly lives up to its name, with a remarkably strong blackberry / piney / hashy smell. As a potent Indica, Blackberry Kush is couchlock weed, and so it is not recommended for high-activity moments.


Former Buffalo Cop Gets Five Years For Marijuana Grow Charge

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 27th 2015 by THCFinder
former-cop-gets-years-for-growing-mjIn May 2012, Jorge Melendez was arrested along with Jason Elardo and Robert Osika after prosecutors said that they saw a surveillance video showing the men tending to a marijuana grow operation in a warehouse on South Park Avenue in Buffalo. Melendez was specifically observed going to the warehouse in his patrol care, while on duty, to tend to the plants. The officer was working for D District but the warehouse was in A District. Upon searching the warehouse, officers also found Melendez’s badge and other credentials, which he had previously claimed to be lost. 
With the discovery of this warehouse, officials found two other marijuana grow ops, one on Clinton Street and the other on West Woodside. Both of the grows were owned by Jason and Gale Elardo. Osika and Elardo are currently awaiting sentencing and are convicted of conspiracy. Jason Elardo died about a year after he was charged in this case, another casualty of the drug war on marijuana. When Melendez faces sentencing, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years with a maximum of forty years behind bars.
Events like this just go to show you how many people are involved in the marijuana trade. Even police officers that are on active duty are growing pot. The business is too tempting and too profitable not to get involved. With such severe consequences for getting caught, it’s surprising that people are still growing and selling marijuana, even with full time jobs that pay well and have benefits. No matter what profession a person has, it’s still possible that they’re involved in the marijuana business. It just seems so awful to think that there are police that are arresting non-violent offenders for possessing marijuana while they themselves are growing it.
