The Effects Of Bad BHO

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
effects-of-bad-bho
By now, the majority of the stoner community is familiar with dabbing, the process of inhaling concentrated THC material that can be used as an incredibly powerful and potent medicine. Unfortunately, the process of making this substance can be extremely dangerous for those attempting it that aren't professionals. The end result can also cause problems for those that use the dabs, as the purging process can sometimes be overlooked, leaving large amounts of butane left in the product.
 
First of all, the process of making BHO can be extremely dangerous. The conditions need to be perfect, not in a kitchen, garage, or storage closet in your apartment building. All of the equipment used must be high grade. Skimping on things like tubes can result in breaking glass and explosions, leading to serious injury. If you don't know what you're doing, don't attempt to make BHO. Explosions like this are what is causing such a negative light to be shed on dabs, which are being called the "crack of marijuana".
 
If BHO is not properly purged of the leftover butane, the product can cause extreme headaches. Most people seem to think that this is the worst side effect but others do argue that the inhalation of the excess butane gas is severely harmful to the lungs and throat, causing terrible side effects. There was one report of a young girl that was dabbing when her throat suddenly swelled up, causing her to have trouble breathing. Fortunately, she was rushed to the hospital in time and was treated for chemical epiglottitis , a condition that effects the flap of skin between the esophagus and trachea. This skin flap becomes inflamed when an irritant is introduced, such as certain chemicals or high levels of heat. However, it is not thought that butane was the cause of this but some other irritant in the product of perhaps the inhalation of the heated air.
 
Products like this need to be made well, especially if it's patients that are using the substance for medical reasons. Always be sure to make BHO correctly, in well ventilated areas, and with the proper equipment. If you're going off of a YouTube video, you should probably not try to accomplish this process. Only those that are experienced should be making BHO, just to be on the safe side.

Cannabis Helps Stop HIV

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-fight-aidsYes you did read the title right. A recent study has found that our beloved cannabis plant has a positive effect on yet another negative affliction. A study done at Louisiana State University had it's results published last week. Published in the AIDS Research and Human Retrovirus journal, the study was conducted over the course of 17 months. Monkeys that were infected with the animal form of HIV were given a daily dose of THC. Over the time period, scientists discovered that the damage to the immune tissue in the stomachs of the primates decreased. Since the stomach is one of the most common areas of the virus to spread in, this discovery is big news. Also found in the study was a higher maintained level of healthy cells in their bodies, as compared to the monkeys that didn't receive the THC treatment.
 
In another study done in 2011 by Molina, infected monkeys were treated with THC and ended up having a higher survival rate than those monkeys that didn't receive the doses. More information regarding studies such as this include a report written in 2012 provided evidence that marijuana-like compounds can fight HIV in late-stage AIDs patients. Add on the fact that an oncologist in the UK found that marijuana can kill cancer cells and the California Pacific Medical Center has conducted research showing that those same compounds can fight other forms of aggressive cancer and you can't deny the fact that it's a miracle plant.
 
THC targets the CB2 receptors in our brains. These receptors manifest in the cells that are connected to our immune systems, which includes both the gastrointestinal tract as well as the spleen. The CB2 receptors are responsible for the anti-inflammatory and pain relieving qualities of cannabis. When cannabis is ingested, something called a "microbial translocation" takes place. When HIV infects a person, it spreads rapidly through the body and kills a good amount of cells in the intestines and stomach. It's this initial attack of the virus that breaks though the cell walls of the intestines and allows the virus to spread in to the bloodstream.
 
If THC is introduced in to the HIV environment, the CB2 receptors in the intestines begin to build new, healthier bacterial cells that begin to prevent the leaking of the cellular wall. Basically building a barrier against the virus' attempt to infiltrate the blood stream, the receptors keep HIV inside of the intestines and out of the bloodstream of the patient. Keeping the virus contained in the intestines would be a huge step in keeping uninfected people from getting infected, putting a stop to the spread of the virus.

New Study Finds Cannabinoids An Effective Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
ms-treatmentA new study published in this month’s issue of the journal European Neurology, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health, has found that muscle stiffness multiple sclerosis marijuanaSativex - a medicinal spray made from the cannabis plant – is an effective and safe treatment option for “moderate to severe multiple sclerosis spasticity (MSS)”.
 
According to researchers: “Nabiximols (Sativex®), a cannabinoid-based oromucosal spray, is an add-on therapy for patients with moderate to severe multiple sclerosis spasticity (MSS) resistant to other medications. The primary objective was to provide real-life observational data of clinical experience of nabiximols in contrast to formal clinical trials of effectiveness.”
 
Researchers used an “observational, prospective, multicenter, non-interventional” research method with “a follow-up period of 3-4 months”; in total, 335 patients were assessed.
 
After conducting the study, it was concluded that; “Real-life data confirm nabiximols as an effective and well-tolerated treatment option for resistant MSS in clinical practice.”
 
The study was conducted by researchers at the Neurological Rehabilitation Center Quellenhof in Germany.
