Indica Vs Sativa By Sight, Not Smoke

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
indica-vs-sativaThere's always a constant battle between indicas and sativas, most of the time just ending with a hybrid of the two. But the two plants differ in a lot of ways when they're growing, not just when they're being smoked. Seeing as how there are now jobs that are popping up where knowing whether a cannabis plant is indica or sativa, this is definitely something that you should familiarize yourself with now so that you can jump on awesome jobs that include you testing cannabis all day and writing reviews about it.
 
We'll start with the indica (since it's my personal favorite). The indica plant grows in a short, wide stature with a better genetic makeup for being grown indoors. The leaves of these plants are shorter and stouter as well, when compared to the leaves of the sativa plants. Indica strains tend to have a seriously strong, sweet odor with the flowers. This specific kind of cannabis is great for relieving body pain, reducing stress and anxiety, and helps to reduce seizures. These are the strains that give the smoker couchlock and prevent you from ever getting anything done.
 
Sativa plants tend to get much bigger then the indicas and are better suited for those who are able to grow outdoors. These plants can reach height of 25ft high, making them more like trees then weeds. Leaves of the sativa plants are long and stringy, just like the plant. Sativa dominant strains usually contain the earthy odor that people like, more along the lines of grass. The high is uplifting and allows the user to get shit done. It provides feeling of well being and is extremely uplifting, making sativa strains prime for artists and those who are dealing with depression.
 
The strains that you smoke are totally up to you. Everyone has a preference and it's good to mix the two different kinds of bud every once in a while to make sure that you're getting a good dose of all of the different kinds of cannabis. If you want to create a painting or write a song, smoke a little bit of sativa. Looking to pass out or just sit at home all day and be lazy? Grab an indica. Whatever you're smoking, enjoy it!

Girl Scout Cookies - Hybrid

If you live in the Bay Area, you've likely heard of Girl Scout Cookies. Whether it's from one of the songs by the famous San Francisco rapper, Berner or actually trying it yourself, Girl Scout Cookies is a can't-miss strain that will medicate you beyond your wildest dreams. A potent mix of an OG Kush x Durban Poison x Cherry Kush mother backcrossed with a prime-looking OG Kush father created possibly one of the best Northern California strains of all time. For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you%u2019ve likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner.

Cannabis And Credit

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, February, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-and-creditAs most people know, there has been a large amount of controversy regarding the purchase of legal cannabis with a credit or debit card. While there are a lot of people who think that the laws are still pretty stiff, there has been a slight relaxation in the credit/debit marijuana crisis. To the surprise of some recreational users, their cards are now being accepted at certain stores, giving marijuana one more small step towards acceptance.
 
Both Visa and Mastercard started off in the cannabis business with a lot of reluctance and at first, the cards weren't accepted. But seeing as how both companies have polices regarding "illegal transactions" (and cannabis isn't technically illegal anymore), the two massive corporations are leaving the choice up to the individual banks, saying that while "the federal government considers the same of marijuana illegal but has announced that it will not challenge state laws the legalize and regulate marijuana sales". The credit card companies just realized how much money they stand to make, allowing legal cannabis to be purchased with plastic.
 
Owner of the Denver Kush Club, a dispensary located in Denver, Darin Smith, said that his store sold an estimated 45% of it's sales in credit/debit cards since New Years Day. There are numerous other stores that have reported that they're taking plastic. However, they refuse to release the names of the banks that they are currently working with. Either way, at least people are getting to smoke what they want, when they want it. They won't have to worry about their credit cards being declined when they want to get their smoke on!

New Study: Marijuana May Treat Schizophrenia

A new study published in this month’s issue of the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis may treat schizophrenia.
 
“Clinical and neurobiological findings suggest that the cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system may be implicated in the pathophysiology and treatment of schizophrenia”, begins the study’s abstract. “We described that the spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) strain presents a schizophrenia behavioral phenotype that is specifically attenuated by antipsychotic drugs, and potentiated by proschizophrenia manipulations. Based on these findings, we have suggested this strain as an animal model of schizophrenia.
 
“The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of cannabinoid drugs on the deficit of prepulse inhibition (PPI) of startle, the main paradigm used to study sensorimotor gating impairment related to schizophrenia, presented by the SHR strain. ”
 
For the study, researchers used synthetic cannabinoids, as well as plant-derived cannabidiol.
 
They conclude that; “Our results reinforce the role of the endocannabinoid system in the sensorimotor gating impairment related to schizophrenia, and point to cannabinoid drugs as potential therapeutic strategies“.

Very Special OG - 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.
