Cannabis Can Treat Prostate Cancer
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study using a compound meant to mimic the medicinal effects of cannabinoids has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – something which cannabis does naturally - can prevent, and treat hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. The study was published this month by the U.S. National Institute of Health.
According to researchers of the study; “In the in vivo treatment, compound 4 [a synthetic cannabinoid] at 2 mg/kg, blocks the growth of LNCaP tumors and reduces the growth of PC-3 tumors generated in mice.”
They continue, stating that cannabinoids are a “good potential anticancer agent against hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.”
The study was conducted at the Instituto de Química Médica, CSIC, Calle Juan de la Cierva in Madrid, Spain. It will appear in print in the European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.

How To Clean A Vaporizer
Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, October, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Smoking a vaporizer is a great way to get stoned. The high is completely different than smoking a bong or a bowl. Marijuana that has been through a vape can also be used in food, although you need a lot more of it as compared to unvaporized weed. There are so many different kinds of vaporizers that are sold these days. All of them are unique but most of them are pretty expensive. While it's nice to have an expensive piece of equipment like a vape around, it's something that needs to be cared for.
Cleaning a vape can be a difficult process, especially if you're unsure of what you're doing. Not only that but every vape is different and therefore, every vape has to be cleaned differently. The following steps are a general idea of how to clean most vaporizers and can be adapted in order to clean your personal equipment.
What You'll Need;
A Small Toothbrush
70-90% ISO Rubbing Alcohol
Gloves (There is still resin in a vape and it doesn't leave skin easily)
Put on your gloves and clear the vaporizer of any leftover bud that's left from your last baking session. Using the toothbrush, remove the fine dust that's produced when weed is vaped. Make sure that you thoroughly clean all parts of the vape that you can reach with the toothbrush. Also, if you're cleaning a handheld vape, be sure to remove the batteries before you begin cleaning and be very careful when using any sort of liquid in the chambers.
Every vape has a screen. Find where yours is located. Since these screens are interchangeable, you can remove this piece. Take it out now but be careful. Depending on how long it's been since your vape was cleaned, this piece may be extremely difficult to remove. You may need to use pliers but BE CAREFUL! Squeezing these pieces too hard can result in cracks. Be gentle but firm. Remove the dirty screen.
Take some rubbing alcohol and dip the Q-Tips in. Using the small cotton swabs, scrub every part of the vape carefully. Each piece of this device gets resin on it so be sure that you pay attention to where the buildups are. The alcohol should remove the resin fairly easily. Occasionally, it may seem like no amount of scrubbing will take this stuff off. If this happens, just lightly brush over the spot with the rubbing alcohol and let it sit for a bit. Don't soak any plastic pieces in rubbing alcohol? Only use this Q-Tip method, as sometimes the alcohol can sink in to the plastic and effect your smoking.
After scrubbing the resin from all parts of your vape, make sure to run them under hot water to clear off the remaining rubbing alcohol. If you want, you can fill a small bowl with hot water and Q-Tip the pieces again with that rather than alcohol. Now, set your pieces out to dry on the paper towels. After the vape has dried, reassemble it and you're ready to smoke! Be careful cleaning vapes that have the chambers on the same part as where the batteries are, if you're familiar with that kind of vape. This set of instructions should be done very carefully. A vaporizer is an expensive investment and it's no good if it happens to get flooded with alcohol or water. Just be careful!
Strain Review; Wonder Woman
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, October, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
Growers favor the Wonder Woman strain. Not only because it's a really good looking lady but because they believe that it's a plant that yields a larger harvest than most other strains. If this is the case, than this lady should be a favorite for all growers. This strain is an indica dominant but with a hint of sativa.
An odd smelling mixture of scents permeates the small, sugary looking buds of the Wonder Woman strain. I've heard that it's a mix of fruit and gasoline, so I'm not quite sure if that's accurate. I don't know if I would smoke gas-smelling weed. But not all weed smells like it smokes. This strain is amazing for those that have problems sleeping. Since it has a high indica percentage , it'll knock you out when you need to sleep and keep you asleep.
Indicia was always my preference, even for every day tasks. A strain like Wonder Woman should be tried before smoking a ton of it. It's always a good idea to test these strains a bit before you end up in a situation that doesn't go well with the strain you chose to use for your wake and bake!
