Cannabis And the Flu

cannabis-and-the-flu

Cold season is still upon us, even though most people are itching for their summer clothes. The flu in particular seems to be a real problem this year and many people have suffered that terrible sickness already. But for those who have managed to stay healthy (or those that are over it and want to stay that way), it seems as if marijuana can help with that. Since getting a flu shot creeps some people out, many are seeking alternative methods to keep their bodies in good shape this season.

The substances that fight the flu and strengthen the immune system are known as flavonoids. They are found in all kinds of plants and are responsible for plant colors, including red, orange, blue, green, etc. There are twenty different varieties of flavonoids found in the cannabis plant as well. But while there are only a few varieties of these flu fighting agents in some plants, the cannabis plant contains flavonoids that are not found in other plants, like the cannaflavins. This is also what acts as part of the anti inflammatory effects of the cannabis plant.

If you're getting sick a lot, it means that your body is lacking in the important flavonoid department. Marijuana can help to fix that imbalance. The plant helps to protect blood cells from rupture, as well as increase the power of your body's vitamin C supply. Benefits of cannabis in this aspect also include the anti-inflammatory agents and it also functions as an antioxidant. As you can see, the plant has amazing benefits when fighting the flu, with the last one being that it provides the body with antibiotic activity and disrupts the function of microorganisms, such as viruses like the flu and bacteria.

On the off chance that you do end up getting sick, try to avoid smoking. Medicate by ingesting your cannabis through edibles. If you smoke, you're only going to further irritate your throat and lungs. You want to be getting better, not worse. You can also make tea, which can always make a person feel better when they're sick. Stay high and healthy!

Study Concludes Marijuana Increases Appetite By Enhancing Sense Of Smell

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, February, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
sense-of-smell-enhancedA new study published this week in the journal Nature Neuroscience has revealed why cannabis can act as an appetite stimulant.
 
A group of European scientists examined the standard smelling and eating patterns of mice, and compared them to patterns exhibited by mice given THC.
 
Both groups of mice were offered almond and banana oils; while the mice in the control group sniffed the oils and eventually lost interest, the group of mice who were administered THC just kept sniffing. When offered food, the mice who were given THC also ate substantially more than the control group.
 
Upon examining another group of mice that had been fasted 24 hours, the researchers found results similar to those seen in the mice given THC.
 
The scientists genetically engineered a group of mice without CB1 receptors in their olfactory bulb (the part of the brain responsible for sense of smell), and found that administering THC no longer had the same effect; the mice reacted to smells the same as the control group, and no longer exhibited an increased appetite.
 
Researchers determined that cannabinoid receptors located in the olfactory bulb were triggered by the THC, which acts as an imitation of the endocannabinoids naturally produced when experiencing hunger – thus, enhancing the sense of smell and increasing the appetite of the mice.

Blackberry Kush - Indica

Blackberry Kush is a mostly Indica Kush with a strong blackberry smell and pink and red hairs. It truly lives up to its name, with a remarkably strong blackberry / piney / hashy smell. As a potent Indica, Blackberry Kush is couchlock weed, and so it is not recommended for high-activity moments.

Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers
 
These things can be a real treat that's usually reserved for a night out at a bar but now, you can make them yourselves at home. Whether you're by yourself or making them for friends, these medicated spicy bites will definitely halt your munchies and make you even more stoned. But be prepared and have a drink close by, otherwise you're in trouble! Cotton mouth mixed with spicy food can be a disaster if you're not ready!
 
What You'll Need;
3/4 cup peanut butter
10 jalapeño peppers
1/4 cup green onions (only the white part), chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp THC oil
 
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and begin to cut the tops off of the jalapeños and set them aside. Take a small knife and remove as much of the seeds and pit as possible. The peppers need to be holly in order to hold the stuffing. Next, rinse the pepper out with water to make sure that you get all of the seeds out. Grab a small sauce pan and put it over medium heat, slowly adding in the THC oil. Let the oil warm for about 30 seconds before you add in the chopped up onions. Cook them for about a minute and then add in the garlic. Sauté everything for about a minute and a half and then add the peanut butter. Add in 2-3 tbsp of water if needed to thin the consistency. The contents of the pan should stir together easily. Once it gets to this point, remove it from the heat.
 
Using a spoon or a small funnel, fill the jalapeños with the peanut butter sauce that you've just finished making. Carefully place the tops back on and stick toothpicks through them to keep the peppers together. Put the peppers on a foil lined baking sheet and put them in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Serve when they're still warm. Enjoy!
