Medicated Butternut Squash Soup
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, March, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
For a mix of something that will medicate you and at the same time, be healthy, this recipe is for you! Butternut squash has awesome health benefits and especially with this cold weather, you can definitely enjoy a bowl of this on a cold night. Although the squash is definitely the best when bought from the local farmers market, you can find it during all seasons at the grocery store. The soup is very simple and doesn't take that long to make, plus you can freeze anything you don't eat for a easy snack later on!
What You'll Need;
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
5 cups of vegetable stock
1 tablespoon chopped sage leaves
1 large onion, diced
3 tablespoons of cannabis-infused oil or butter
1 cup chopped carrots
1 ½ tablespoons of cannabutter to finish
1 cup chopped celery
3 lbs butternut squash
1.5 teaspoons of sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
Start by peeling the squash and cutting it in to two halves, making sure to remove the seeds. Cut the squash in to chunks and place them in a steamer basket for about 40 minutes. While that cooks, heat the oil in a large pot and add in the carrots, diced onion, and celery, along with the herbs that you have set aside. Sauté these veggies on medium for 20 minutes until they begin to brown.
Add the squash, vegetable stock (or water), and the salt to the pot. Simmer everything together for another 20 minutes, making sure to cover the pot. After the soup is done cooking, puree it in the blender in batches to make sure that everything gets blended together well. Put the soup back in the pot and add in the salt and pepper to taste, if you'd like. The salt and pepper are both optional.
Looking for a soup with a little more of a kick? Take the cannabutter than you have set aside and set it atop the soup. The butter will melt in to the meal and will give you an extra boost of stoned! You can also serve the butter on a slice of bread if you don't want to add the butter in to the soup itself! This recipe serves four but as said above, you can either share with friends or freeze and save the rest of the soup for a snack later! Enjoy!

Five Important Things To Know About CBD
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
There are over sixty different compounds that are found in the cannabis plant which we have grown so fond of. Out of these sixty, however, it is THC and CBD that are found in the highest levels and therefore the most studied. When medicating with cannabis, it is the substance know as CBD that treats illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy, and arthritis. CBD is not psychoactive and doesn't get the user stoned, making it a good option for children suffering with diseases that don't want to use the harsh medicines put out by big pharma. There is a lot to know about CBD but these are the five most important things that you should know about this beneficial substance.
1. CBD levels vary from strain to strain. Some kinds of cannabis have higher CBD content and lower THC content, giving them a not so high feeling but relief from certain symptoms. Cannabis breeders have been able to breed cannabis strains with almost no THC but high amounts of CBD, making them awesome for medical uses.
2. Since CBD is non-psychoactive, it doesn't get the user stoned. This makes the CBD strains much less desired among the recreational users but highly sought after in the medical field. Since cannabis has virtually no negative side effects, it makes for a very desirable treatment.
3. With a wide range of medical benefits, the effects of CBD really can't be brushed off. This was proven by a study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology that showed that CBD contained the following medical uses; it combats nausea and vomiting as well as seizures. In addition, CBD is anti inflammatory and combats psychosis disorders. The study goes on to state that CBD fights neuro-degenerative disorders and cancer cells/tumors, plus it fights anxiety.
4. Most stoners know that the negative side effects of THC seem to be paranoia and a slight impairment of memory. CBD actually negates these effects and reduces them. There are multiple studies that show CBD counteracting these negative effects from THC. Both substances have also both been shown that they contain no risk of overdose, lethal or not.
5. Even with all of this positive information regarding CBD, it is still considered an illegal substance and a Schedule I drug in the United States and a Schedule II in Canada. However, due to the overwhelming amount of information regarding CBD, the FDA recently approved a pharmaceutical version of CBD to begin trials in pediatric epilepsy.
Washington DC City Council Passes Marijuana Decriminalization
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, March, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
Washington, DC, is set to become the next entity to decriminalize small-time marijuana possession after the city council Tuesday gave final approval to a decriminalization bill. The bill must still be approved by Mayor Vincent Gray, who has signaled support for decriminalization.
But even after the mayor signs off, the measure will not become law until Congress has completed a required legislative review. That process could last into the summer.
The “Marijuana Possession Decriminalization Amendment Act of 2014″ (Council Bill 20-409) removes the threat of arrests for the possession of less than an ounce and replaces it with a $25 fine, the lowest fine in any state that has decriminalized. In setting the fine so low, council members cited homelessness in the District and high poverty rates in areas of the city that have seen the highest numbers of arrests.
Police still can, however, seize your marijuana and whatever you used to smoke it. And public use of marijuana remains a criminal misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail.
“This is a big step forward for our nation’s capital, as well as our nation as a whole. Clearly, marijuana prohibition’s days are numbered in the United States,” said Dan Riffle, director of federal policies for the Marijuana Policy Project, which supported the bill. “We should not be saddling people with criminal records simply for using a substance that is less harmful than alcohol,” Riffle said. “Law enforcement resources should be used to address serious crimes, not to arrest and prosecute adults for possessing small amounts of marijuana. Neither the District nor any of the states can afford to continue criminalizing adults for marijuana possession.”
“For far too long, people of color have been disproportionately and unfairly arrested and marginalized for marijuana possession in the District of Columbia. DC council members took the first critical step today toward ending the selective enforcement of marijuana prohibition policies that have perpetuated racial disparities in the criminal justice system for decades,” said Grant Smith, policy manager with the Drug Policy Alliance, which also supported the bill.
