Marijuana Used To Treat Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-used-for-withdrawl-issuesWhen someone first reads the title of this article, I'm sure that the first thought they have is "you can't treat an addiction to drugs with other drugs". But then what do you call methadone and suboxone? Those are two drugs that are used to treat patients with an opiate addiction. These two drugs by themselves have more negative side effects than the drugs they're supposed to be preventing. Not only that but the risk of dependency on these "helpful" treatments.
 
Cannabis has been found to dull the symptoms of withdrawal that people feel when quitting opiates. There was a study done at the Laboratory for Physiopathology of Diseases of the Central Nervous System that injected morphine addicted rodents with THC, showing suppressed behavioral, molecular, and biochemical dependance. The researchers said that cannabis should be looked at as a treatment for the symptoms of heroin/morphine withdrawal symptoms. The following is a quote from a heroin addict that used marijuana to treat their addiction;
 
“The marijuana helped me to sleep and eat and provided strength to continue detoxification. With the help of marijuana, I weaned myself off methadone in about four months. To this day I have continued to smoke marijuana, about three cigarettes per day and have never felt the desire to return to either heroin or methadone. My conclusion, based on this experience, is that marijuana is a potent medicine in the treatment of withdrawal from both heroin and methadone."
 
In addition, patients who are given cannabis to treat their withdrawal are more apt and compliant with the treatment that they go through. The cannabis using patients had an easier time getting themselves in order after fighting addiction, instead of remaining dependent on the drug and the drug that was supposed to treat it. If cannabis can be used to get people away from heroin and opiates, then we should really be using it for that particular purpose. Slowly, doctors are realizing the endless benefits of this plant and hopefully, the dangerous drugs used to treat addiction can be replaced with cannabis.

What To Get A Stoner For Christmas

Category: Fun | Posted on Tue, December, 17th 2013 by THCFinder

It’s December and for those the celebrate Christmas, it’s the season to buy a ton of presents. Stoners can sometimes be tough to buy for, especially for those who don’t feel comfortable buying a bag of weed from a street dealer. Even if you do feel okay buying bud for your friends and siblings, maybe your family isn’t 420 friendly and you need some more legal gifts to give while your aunts and uncles are around. If you’re looking for a stoner’s Christmas list, you’ve come to the right place. These gifts will be perfect for the pothead in your life, especially if you don’t feel like buying them a bag.

1. Growing equipment

This stuff can get pretty expensive so buying the pothead in your life some grow lights or soil might just make a stoner’s Christmas! Growing marijuana is very expensive so even the littlest bit helps! Buying things from a hydro store isn’t that sketchy either. After all, you’re just growing tomatoes in your house, right?

2. Stoner movie

There’s so many choices for this one that you may want to give something else! It’s almost impossible to pick the perfect stoner movie, although I’m sure that the receiver will love it no matter what. As long as it contains some sort of goofy humor, it’s sure to become a constantly watched DVD.

3. Cool lighters

Perhaps you seen an interesting pack of Bic lighters somewhere. There are awesome stocking stuffers, especially if you can find the really awesome rare ones. If you buy a cool lighter every time you see one at a gas station, you’ll have an abundance of stocking stuffers once Christmas comes around. Or you could just buy the Bic multipacks. Stoners always need lighters.

4. Rolling papers

And if you’re in the warmer areas of the world, there’s still t-shirts and tanks available!

6. Video games

From the simple Mario games to Call Of Duty, stoners love video games. No matter what you buy them, they’re sure to be amused by it. Just make sure that they already have the system that the game is made for. It happens far more often than it should, getting games for the wrong system!

7. Glass

This can include magazines as well! Stoners love books, especially books about bud. There are a lot of awesome books out there that are full of random stoner knowledge. Getting stoned and reading one of these silly novels is a great pass time that doesn’t involve technology.

10. Cash

If you don’t feel comfortable buying bud for your stoner friend and they possess all of the above items, you can simply just give them a card, some cash, and a note saying “you know what this is for”. Family won’t suspect anything and the stoner will be able to buy a bag later… Who knows, they might even smoke you up!

Canna Kaluha Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, December, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
kahulua-recipe
With winter here and the Christmas season upon us, there are plenty of Christmasy drinks and foods to be made. For those that like to be festive and drink lots of alcohol this time of year, I have located this recipe for cannabis infused Kaluha, which is a popular liquor for holiday drinks. Please enjoy responsibly!
 
What You'll Need
30 grams cannabis flowers
Cream
Sugar
15 ml vanilla extract
4 tsp instant coffee
Vodka
 
Keep in mind that this recipe will make about six bottles of this drink so be sure to adjust your amounts accordingly. Grind up your cannabis using a coffee grinder. Add the ground cannabis to a pan. Pour in 500ml of cream and simmer it for about 30 minutes. You can add in a bit of whole milk if you feel the need to, as some liquid is lost to steam. As always, be sure not to boil as you'll lose some of the THC that you're trying to extract. After the mix has simmered for half an hour, strain it in through a cheesecloth to a 750ml bottle. Pour in half a cup of sugar and add the vanilla extract. Then, put in the instant coffee. Now, fill the bottle to the top with the vodka and shake vigorously until everything is well mixed. Store in the refrigerator.
 
Drink Suggestion;
1.25oz cannakaluha
2 oz eggnog
Cinnamon/nutmeg/brown sugar mix
 
Rim the glass with the cinnamon/brown sugar/nutmeg mix. Add cannakaluha and eggnog to shaker with ice and shake together well. Strain over a few ice cubes in to the rimmed glass and enjoy!
