Lighters Or Hemp Wick
Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, October, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
Most people are aware that when they smoke weed, they get some of the residue from the butane in their lighters. This makes up a lot of what's left in your bowl after a while (resin... which is why it's not that good to smoke). Butane definitely messes with the taste of the weed that you're smoking. It's also not that good for you. To avoid getting that gross butane taste, there's hemp wick.
Hemp wick is a wick coated with beeswax. It's natural, so there's none of that butane taste because it's just a wick. It works best when wrapped around a lighter so that you can easily light the wick and hold it to light the bowl. This way, instead of inhaling harmful chemicals, you're getting a much cleaner hit. When you take a hit of some dank with wick instead of a lighter, it's amazing. You can totally taste the weed, without that sour/harsh butane taste.
By choosing to use hemp wick rather than a lighter, you're smoking healthier and cleaner. You don't need to use the lighter are much when smoking a bowl because the wick stays lit when it's passed from person to person. You're also able to actually taste the buds the way they're supposed to be tasted. There is no harsh aftertaste when you smoke with hemp wick.
While most people do use lighters because they're convenient, it is definitely healthier to use the wick. Inhaling butane has serious effects on the lungs and can give massive headaches when too much is ingested. That applies more to badly made BHO but either way, this chemical isn't good for you. Smoke healthier by using hemp wick, which can be bought at almost every head shop. I promise that you'll enjoy smoking with wick much more than a lighter and your lungs with thank you!

New Study Finds THC Can Treat Parkinson's Disease
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, October, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
According to a study being published in next month’s issue of the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, and published online early by the National Institute of health, has found that THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) can treat Parkinson’s disease.
According to the study’s introduction; “Cannabinoids such as Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) are neuroprotective in animal and cell culture models of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In a PD cell culture model we recently demonstrated that Δ9-THC is neuroprotective through activation of the nuclear receptor peroxisomal proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ)”.
Researchers, while studying the effects of THC on these cell-culture models of Parkinson’s disease, found that; “Δ9-THC resulted in significant inhibition of MPP+ induced oxidative stress”. They conclude that; “Δ9-THC induces PPARγ dependent mitochondrial biogenesis, a mechanism that may be beneficial for the treatment of PD.”
The study was conducted by researchers at the Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.
