The Relationship Between CBD and the Human Brain and What it Means for the Future

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

The cannabis plant has several different cannabinoids. One of them is CBD, or cannabidiol, and there is a profound relationship between CBD and the human brain.

Originally from Central Asia, cannabis is grown in many parts of the world today. The buds of the Cannabis sativa plant are covered in a sticky dusting of crystal resin, that contains therapeutic compounds known as cannabinoids.

There are far more cannabinoids than have been discovered. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has classified cannabinoids as a Schedule I controlled substance, the same as LSD and heroin. Owing to such regulatory barriers, the scientific inquiry and research of cannabis is difficult. However, earlier this year, the National Academy of Sciences released a new report that reviewed 10,000 scientific abstracts and reached almost 100 conclusions regarding the medical uses of marijuana and cannabis- derived products. The report suggests, "Political and non-political strategies to resolve regulatory barriers to cannabis research, an objective and evidence-based analysis of cannabis policy is necessary.”

Man Faces 15 Years After Stealing House Plant He Thought Was Pot

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve all heard the old adage, “crime doesn’t pay.” Well, in the case of this Pennsylvania man, who faces up to 15 years in prison after stealing a house plant he thought was pot, no phrase has ever rung truer.

A Costly Mistake

The bizarre string of petty robberies committed this past March, courtesy of one Maico J. Rosado Jr., makes the 21-year-old man an arguably pathetic figure.

This past Wednesday, Rosado was sentenced 7.5 to 15 years in prison, after pleading guilty in August to robbery and three counts of burglary. Prior to his plea, Rosado was facing 15 criminal charges due to the series of robberies. It’s what was taken, however, that makes this case so outlandish.

Let’s go back to the beginning.

Another Group of Scientists Aim to Map Marijuana’s DNA

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

America’s cannabis renaissance represents more than just a sea change in cultural and political attitudes toward the plant. It also presents an unprecedented opportunity for bringing scientific knowledge about weed into the 21st century. So much about cannabis is simply under-studied. But with legalization, the sudden surge in demand for weed is quickly turning the business of cannabis into an industrial-scale enterprise and hurling agriculture companies into a technological arms race to stay ahead of the curve. Now, one leading bioscience firm is joining forces with university researchers to map marijuana’s DNA.

Scientists Aim To Map Marijuana’s DNA

DNA sequencing, the process of mapping an organism’s genome, has been central in agriculture for decades.

Mapping plants’ DNA gives scientists a way to obtain new and crucial insights into the processes that create healthy, sustainable and desirable crops.
