Ice Extracts Vs BHO
Category: Concentrates | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
More people hurt themselves trying to make BHO every day. Considering most of the people that are getting hurt are simply just not educated enough to be doing what they are, it's an extremely frustrating situation. If people are getting hurt using marijuana products, it doesn't look that good for the rest of us. But now, with more simple ways of making the extracts with ice rather than butane, it's time people made the switch.
Not only is BHO extremely dangerous to make for those without experience, it can be very unhealthy. Since the substance is made with butane fuel, it can cause major damage to the human body if not purged properly. Inhaling too much butane can cause severe headaches and issues with the lungs. It'll make you sick, basically. This method of obtaining a substance with a higher THC content should only be attempted by those who know what they're doing. The cannabis community can't handle more mistakes made by those who don't know what they're doing. From making the material in small, confined spaces to using the wrong amount of butane, amateur BHO makers need to stop... Now.
Since BHO can be made in a such an awfully unhealthy way, it can be very dangerous. Personally, I believe that if you're going to be looking to get stoned off of some sort of extract, you need to be aware that BHO is bad for you when made in the wrong conditions. If you're getting it from a reputable source, by all means, go for it! But your friend's backyard or kitchen for that matter is not a good place to be making this substance. That is the stuff that will make you ill.
Ice extracts are completely different. They are more difficult and time consuming to make but the end result is worth it. Instead of using the butane fuel to get the THC extracted, this method uses cold water and ice. In making hash this way, you eliminate the danger of an explosion. There's no gasses or flames involved. You won't blow yourself up using this method, even though it's going to be a time consuming matter. The taste of ice extract will also be a higher quality, as well as the high that you get from it. Since the end result contains no toxic substances and is only made with ice and water, there is no risk for the butane sickness that can come with BHO.
Even if the ice method takes more time and is more complicated, the level of risk is extremely low. Making ice extract is the smarter way to get concentrated THC. It won't make you sick if made improperly. If more stoners were using the ice method to get their extracts, then there would be a lot less of this negative attention that the bad BHO runners are getting the cannabis community. Ice is the way to go.
Study: Daily Marijuana Use Is Perfectly Healthy

I smoke marijuana daily, and have for about two decades now. Every time I have ever gone to the doctor during the last two decades I have always been given a clean bill of health. I know a lot of people that use marijuana on a daily basis. Jay Smoker probably smokes marijuana every fifteen minutes if he can. Marijuana opponents will always say that daily marijuana use is harmful. However, a new study suggests otherwise.
“Researchers from Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine examined 589 drug users, more than 8 out of 10 of then pot smokers, and determined that the weed aficionados among them were no more likely to go see the doctor than non-drug consumers.” According to the study, which was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
Do you use marijuana on a daily basis? If so, how many times a day do you consume marijuana? How would you rate your overall health? I’d like to see a study that went even further to compare different methods of consumption. Eating marijuana and vaporizing marijuana would be the healthiest, but just how much healthier is something that I’ve wanted to know for awhile now.
Do you believe that ‘all marijuana use is medical?’ There are many people out there that think so. I once saw a guy on TV explain that he doesn’t use marijuana because he’s sick necessarily, but that he uses marijuana to ‘be well.’ I personally don’t think that all marijuana use is medical. For me personally, there are times that I use it to alleviate pain, while other times I just want to get very, very baked. Different strokes for different folks I suppose!

Cannabis and Exercise
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
While there is still the negative stereotype that stoners are lazy and can't seem to get off the couch, most stoners today are the healthiest people around. Not only does cannabis get you high but it's good for you to ingest the raw leaves in drinks, good for the skin, and apparently helps with exercising as well. Now, a plant that has medical reasons plus these should definitely be put to use in the American society, especially if cannabis would help reduce the amount of unhealthy people in the world.
A study done that was recently released stated that the body's storage of the THC chemical can give exercisers and extra boost, up to almost a month after smoking. As you exercise, you burn off fat. Since THC is a fat-soluble chemical, these bursting fat cells release small amounts of THC back in to your system. The body the starts to feel the effects of smoking a small bowl full of cannabis. Marijuana has constantly been in sports news lately, debating on if the plant helps or hinders athletes in their respective sport.
When you work out, do you notice that you feel good? Like you're happy, positive, and your body just feels amazing? That's because when you exercise, the brain activates the same system that releases endocannabinoids. So when you exercise, you're actually getting the same feelings as when you smoke a bowl. Scientists think that this bodily response to exercise is a way for the body to reduce the feeling of pain when working out. Obviously when you exercise, you stretch muscles and strain your systems. By producing these endocannabinoids, the body fights pain and gives you that "runners high" feeling.
Well, this information will be good for those of you with serious cases of munchies. Those who use cannabis on a regular basis have shown to have fasting insulin levels that are 16% lower than those who don't smoke (fasting insulin is the insulin in your body before ingesting food). The study also pointed out that cannabis smokers had a 17% lower insulin resistance level, not to mention lower waist size average. Basically, cannabis is being looked at as a way to help make the metabolism work faster.
One could definitely use this to argue that cannabis is definitely a help to those who play sports and smoke the drug. As more information on the subject comes out, we'll be able to tell for sure. One thing is clear. Cannabis has so many uses, some that we may not even be able to comprehend just quite yet. What this plant can do for our bodies is amazing and there's no reason that we shouldn't be utilizing it daily.
