The Biology of CBD
Previously in “The Chemistry of CBD,” we looked at the subtle changes in the structure of CBD versus that of THC and the potential differences in the resulting conformation of cannabinoid receptor-1 (CB1).
We discussed how minuscule changes can have large multiplicative effects down the biological stream. As with all things in this world, structure determines function. The structure of the molecule determines how it binds to the protein, the movement of the protein determines the resulting cellular action and the structure of neuronal networks determines our physical behaviors which can be measured through science!
A claim that was made in the preceding article posed that CBD has the opposite effects of THC.
There have been a few studies that look at the differences in behavior, as well as the effect of CBD on the behaviors elicited by THC. One study in particular took advantage of a technique known as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Afghan Kush (Indica)
Tons of dull orange hairs gives this indica a orangish brownish tint. Soft green color that is overpowered by the thick hairs. Afghan Kush smells like a mango orange farm with a hint of funk to it that is comparable to an old musty basement. Does not have the trademark Kush smell, but it does have its own unique odor and it works well for night time use. Provides an energetic burst of energy right off the bat. After a few minutes it provides a very relaxed focus feeling. Keeps you right on the edge of energetic and couch locked. Great for anxiety and relaxing.
Clark County issues reminder about no marijuana in tour buses, limos, other moving vehicles
Clark County Business License officials are reminding Las Vegas-area residents and visitors that consuming marijuana in illegal in moving vehicles.
Officials have learned that some persons have sought to rent tour buses and limousines so that they may consume marijuana in them, which is illegal under state law.
The law states "a person who smokes or otherwise consumes marijuana in a public place, in a retail marijuana store, or in a moving vehicle is guilty of a misdemeanor punished by a fine of not more than $600.”
Banana Kush (Indica)
With genetics like Banana and the enormously legendary OG Kush, this strain is sure to be potent. With a THC content between 18% and 20%, Banana Kush not only packs a serious punch, but is arguably the best tasting California cannabis available. It is a favorite among dispensaries mostly in Southern California, but has recently expanded to be found in dispensaries throughout the state. This bud is one of those strains that tastes exactly how it smells, particularly when vaporized.
Massachusetts Governor to Review Marijuana Bill after Final OK in Legislature
BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker is promising to carefully review a bill that makes changes to the state’s voter-approved recreational marijuana law.
The legislation was formally sent to the Republican governor’s desk on Thursday after final procedural votes in the House and Senate.
Lawmakers earlier voted to accept a compromise hammered out by negotiators after the two chambers approved competing versions of the bill.
The compromise sets up different procedures for cities and towns to follow if they want to restrict marijuana stores, depending on how their residents voted on the November ballot question. Some argue that provision could leave the bill vulnerable to a constitutional challenge.
