The Purps (Hybrid)
This scrumptious purple plant comes out of Mendocino County, in northern California, where it began as a clone-only plant among the medical marijuana community. The Purps high soars into a long-lasting purple haze of playful euphoria. It produces an active, awake feeling with a very low burnout factor.
Sparks fly over marijuana legalization
Politically influential opponents of Delaware's marijuana legalization bill voiced their concerns Thursday in a roundtable conversation with Gov. John Carney and the bill's sponsors.
A gaggle of cannabis legalization activists watched on and many offered opinions during a comment session, resulting in a lively and largely measured debate about the future of marijuana in Delaware.
At question is House Bill 110, or the Delaware Marijuana Control Act, which would regulate the recreational use of less than one ounce of marijuana "in the same manner as alcohol."
Kimbo Kush (Indica)
A strain developed by Exotic Genetix, it's a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid of Platinum Blackberry Kush and Starfighter (itself a phenotype of Tahoe Alien OG). Kimbo Kush is an excellent overall pain reliever and worked well for spasms and stress. Everything about its looks and tastes screams “indica” what with its very dark green hues and berry flavors, but there's just enough sativa in its blood to keep it from inducing sleepy-headedness. Use this one on weekends and evenings and you should get everything you need in a medicine.
Positive Effects of Medical Marijuana on Alzheimer’s Prevention
A preclinical study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that very small doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can slow the production of toxic clumps of beta-amyloid proteins in the brain, which are thought to kick start the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
In a healthy brain, these protein fragments are broken down and eliminated. For those with Alzheimer’s disease, the fragments accumulate to form hard, insoluble plaques.
The study supports the results of previous research that found evidence of the protective effects of cannabinoids, including THC, on patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
Back in 2006, Kim Janda, a chemistry professor at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, and his colleagues published the first study showing that THC might have a positive effect in fighting Alzheimer’s.
