Hemp Building Material Absorbs Pollutants And Improves Insulation

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
hemp-helps-the-environmentHemp never ceases to amaze me. Hemp is great for making clothes. Hemp seed is a great food source. Hemp is better to make paper out of than wood, although as we continue to transition to digital formats, that need is becoming less prevalent, but still prevalent enough to be relevant nonetheless. I read an article not too far back that showed hemp is likely to be used to make more efficient batteries in the future. It appears that hemp is a stellar building material too, creating a material that absorbs pollutants while also improving insulation compared to petroleum products. Per Green Optimistic:
Just because a building has to be solid and tough, it does not mean that the materials used to construct it have to be hard-core polluting steel and concrete. Not long ago we drew your attention to eco-friendly cement, which can be used in the making of concrete, now it is time to move on to other eco-friendly materials. A team of scientists from University of Bath, UK, working under the HIVE project, has set their eyes on using hemp as a replacement to oil-based products in insulating materials.
To be more precise, the guys decided to focus on hemp-lime and hemp fiber. Building materials made of these were found to have perfect insulating properties, they absorb moisture from the air, and can control the internal temperature of the building. To make the material suitable for construction, all that is needed is to mix the hemp with lime-based binder and turn it into highly resistant to fire and decay building panels.
Building with hemp materials is a win-win every way you look at it. It helps the environment, it’s cost effective, and it’s efficient. Petroleum based building materials are harmful to the environment, get more expensive all the time, and don’t work nearly as well as hemp based products. I can’t wait until someday when I can afford to build a house made out of hemp!

New Marijuana Possession Laws Go Into Effect In Philadelphia

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – New laws go into effect on Monday relaxing the punishment for some types of marijuana possession in Philadelphia.
Police will now issue a $25 fine to anyone caught with less than an ounce of pot. Someone caught smoking marijuana in public will receive a $100 fine and up to nine hours of community service.
Officials say the new policy does not legalize marijuana use or possession, but it allows law enforcement to focus on more serious offenses.

Can Smoking Marijuana Can Protect You From Ebola?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 17th 2014 by THCFinder


Not a day has gone by in the last few weeks without a mention of Ebola. Having made its way into North America, Ebola has become reached the top of the “to fear” list, making many worry that it will only be a matter of time before the disease dominates the continent. Effective vaccines and treatments for Ebola have yet to be discovered, though one may be hiding in plain sight: cannabis.

Cannabinoids in marijuana have gained more and more of a reputation as a way to control and aid one’s immune systems, specifically with diseases that target a body’s natural defense measures against viruses, like HIV. Dr. David B. Allen, medical director of Cannabis Sativa, Inc, and Brad Morehouse, founder of, both believe cannabis can combat Ebola in the same way.

First, a rundown on what Ebola is and does, so everyone understands the argument. Ebola is a virus that targets the RNA (which creates proteins) in cells, takes over, then begins to replicate itself. The virus is able to hide itself from virus killing cells by creating indivisibility cloak-like surface proteins, which makes fighting Ebola especially difficult for the body.

Another consequence of Ebola being an RNA virus is that it makes each strain unique to the individual infected, thus making the creation of a widely applicable vaccine incredibly difficult.

What makes Ebola deadly is the way in which one’s immune system reacts as time goes on. Aside from creating hemorrhaging and leaking between cells, Ebola primarily kills when a person’s body releases a massive amount of enzymes (a cytokine storm) and an overabundant, and fatal amount, of immune cells being activated.

That’s where marijuana comes in as a potential saving grace to those afflicted with Ebola. As Joe Martin points out, cannabis is contains natural antiretrovirals and is also an anti-inflammatory able to reduce the harm to the body caused by a cytokine storm.

Dr. Allen also notes that cannabis has already become a legitimate regulator of immune system processes for those infected with HIV, with the same processes being applicable to Ebola. Being a natural virus killer, Allen also notes how cannabis can prevent the other harmful consequences of Ebola, namely hemorrhaging and cell leaking.

Strong evidence suggests that cannabis can be a positive treatment for those suffering from Ebola, but all of which should be taken with a grain of salt. These are hypotheses, based on research involving other viruses, and not proven fact. Still, the argumentation is enough to warrant a clinical trial. Worst to worst, Ebola sufferers will smoke a bit of weed, which won’t make things worse…we hope.
