An intriguing new study being published in next month’s issue of the journal Critical Care Medicine, and published online early by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabinoid-based medicine administered through IV may provide a method of helping an individual resuscitate from cardiac arrest.
According to researchers, who examined rate models of cardiac arrest, “Blood temperatures decreased from 37°C to 33°C in 4 hours in animals in WIN55, 212-2 [cannabinoid receptor agonist] hypothermia group.. There was a significant improvement in myocardial function in the animals treated with WIN55, 212-2 hypothermia beginning at 1 hour after start of infusion.”
They continue; “WIN55, 212-2 hypothermia group was associated with significantly improved neurologic deficit scores and survival time when compared with placebo control group and WIN55, 212-2 with normal body temperature group.”
They conclude that; “In a rat model of cardiac arrest, better postresuscitation myocardial function, neurological deficit scores, and longer duration of survival were observed by the pharmacologically induced hypothermia with WIN55, 212-2. The improved outcomes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation following administration of WIN55, 212-2 appeared to be the results from its temperature reduction effects.”

Cinnamon bun's are everyone's guilty pleasure. They're so delicious and no one can resist a well made one. The lone smell of just one of these delicious treats is enough to make a stoner's mouth water. But the best part is, now you can make your own and medicate them too! Now, you can get stoned while you eat them and have a legitimate excuse to eat multiple cinnamon buns and not feel AS guilty as you normally would!
What You'll Need;
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup marijuana butter/margarine, melted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon salt
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
2 eggs, room temperature
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
1 cup warm milk
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Place the ingredients in a bread machine in the order recommended by the directions on the bread machine. Select the appropriate dough cycle and push start. When the fought has doubled in size, turn the bowl upside down on a floured surface and cover the dough. Leave it for ten minutes. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Then, take the dough and roll it in to a 16x21 rectangle on your flat surface. Take 1/3 cup of cannabutter and spread it over the dough, followed by a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll the dough up and cut it in to 12 slices. Place the rolls on to a greased baking sheet and cover until they double in size (about 30 minutes). While these are rising, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Once the rolls have been cooked for about 15 minutes, they should be an even golden brown. As they cook, you can make the frosting that goes with them. Beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup cannabutter, confectionary sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Warm this mix up for a few seconds in the microwave and then spread on your rolls once they've finished cooking in the oven. Enjoy!

Who's The Better Driver

Driving while under the influence of marijuana is a big deal right now. But if driving while stoned is so dangerous, why is driving drunk promoted by establishments like bars and clubs? Even if you don't think that that's promoting drunk driving, there are far more people who do it then there should be. Driving while drunk is absolutely nothing like driving stoned.
Alcohol greatly effects the motor skills, as well as the way your brain process information. Some drunks see double, as well as slur their speech and stumble around their own feet. Getting behind the wheel of a car in this state is deadly. The individual has a slow reaction time and is unable to process the quickly changing surroundings. There really is no benefit to driving while drunk. It is extremely dangerous to yourself and the people around you. The alcohol greatly inhibits the decision making part of the brain as well, so that even if you do get in to an accident, there is a chance that your drunk self will tell you to bail, rather than staying behind to deal with the consequences. Seriously, read up on some of the drunk driving accidents that have happened. You will be shocked.
The drivers that are under the influence of marijuana aren't going to swerve suddenly and take out an oncoming car. Driving stoned can help some people to deal with the crazy drivers that seem to overtake the road. It decreases some peoples' anxious feelings about driving and can be a good way to tone down stress on trips. However, it is highly recommended that you take driving stoned very seriously. Learning to drive high is like learning how to drive all over again. There have been studies released saying that driving while under the influence of cannabis is comparable to driving while taking allergy medicine. While some say that cannabis is a mind altering substance, the only altering I feel that is does is alter road rage out of the driver's mind. No one has time to be mad when they're high.
It's safe to say that driving while stoned is far safer. There has never been an accident proven to have solely been caused by marijuana. Drunk driving kills hundreds of people a year, both those that are driving and the innocent bystanders that suffer from it. It's always best to drive sober but if you must pick one, I would have to say that driving stoned is a better option than driving while drunk. In general, I suggest picking up a blunt and putting down the bottle.
