VSOG - Sativa

The "Ocean Grown" OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today. OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes.

Study Finds Cannabis-Infused Microparticles Effectively Inhibit Tumor Growth

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-stop-tumorsA study published recently by the journal PLoS One, as well as the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-infused microparticles can be an effective anticancer agent.
 
For the study, researchers “analyzed CBD- and THC-loaded poly-ε-caprolactone microparticles as an alternative delivery system for long-term cannabinoid administration in a murine xenograft model of glioma [a type of tumor]”
 
According to the study; “In vitro characterization of THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles showed that this method of microencapsulation facilitates a sustained release of the two cannabinoids for several days”, it continues; “Local administration of THC-, CBD- or a mixture of THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles every 5 days to mice bearing glioma xenografts reduced tumour growth with the same efficacy than a daily local administration of the equivalent amount of those cannabinoids in solution”, demonstrating that the microparticles may be more effective at combating tumors than standardized forms of administration (such as inhalation or ingestion).
 
Researchers found conclusive evidence that “cannabinoid-loaded microparticles enhanced apoptosis and decreased cell proliferation and angiogenesis in these tumours.”
 
They conclude: “Our findings support that THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles could be used as an alternative method of cannabinoid delivery in anticancer therapies.”

Ice In The Bong; Yes Or No?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
ice-in-your-bong-for-cold-hitsIce In The Bong; Good Or Bad?
 
Most bongs that are on the market today come equipped with ice catchers. This added tool makes it possible for you to put ice cubes in your bong, which people like because it cools the smoke before you inhale it. However, there are some rumors surrounding ice in bongs. While it may cool the smoke, you're also inhaling a ton of water vapor from the ice cubes. This can lead to severe bronchitis and lung problems, as inhaling too much water vapor isn't good for your lungs.
 
When the hot smoke from the bowl passes over the cubes in the bong, the ice melts in to the smoke, which goes straight to your lungs. It's extremely difficult for me to find any sort of studies relating to this issue. Mostly, it's all forums of stoners bickering back and forth about their opinions. I turned to the E-cigs that people are smoking these days. While the Cigs aren't the same as ice in a bong, the selling point is that you're inhaling water vapor, rather than smoke. Unfortunately, Dr. Mike Feinstein - a spokesman for the American Lung Association - says that these products are unsafe and are potentially worse than actual cigarettes.
 
In my personal experience, ice in a bong hurts the hell out of my lungs. As someone who has suffered from severe bronchitis due to over inhalation of second hand smoke, I can definitely feel the difference between a bong with ice and one without. When I smoke a bong with ice in it, it's almost like the smoke freezes in my lungs, making it extremely hard to breathe. When I smoke without ice, this feeling doesn't happen. I'm not sure if my lungs are just damaged because I used to smoke cigarettes and because of the bronchitis but I do not smoke with ice in my bongs... Ever. If I want to cool the smoke down, I fill my bong with water that's been in the refrigerator. That way, I'm inhaling just the smoke, without the vapor from the cubes.
 
As I stated before, there really is no right answer to this question. My personal belief is that you shouldn't put ice in your bong. But that's just me. Smoking itself can be argued about whether or not it's healthy. There are most certainly healthier ways to get high other than smoking. It all comes down to what you think you should do. Cold water in the bong works perfectly for me although I definitely prefer to eat my weed over anything else. Be healthy and safe, fellow stoners! :)
