The Next Generation of Medicinal Cannabis: High-CBG Strains

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

Cannabigerol, a small non-psychoactive component of cannabis, shows significant promise as atreatment for glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and skin diseases, but its mostly unavailable in the medical marijuana market. Does a cheap and natural source exist for this rare medicinal cannabinoid?

All the major cannabinoids in marijuana come from cannabigerol (CBG); enzymes in the trichometurn CBG into THC, CBD and CBC. Since it’s the precursor for the major compounds, very little of is left over in mature flowers. Harvesting early doesn’t necessarily lead to high amounts of CBG; trichome scientists believe CBG gets turned into THC, CBD or CBC almost soon as it gets made.

Medical marijuana patients have access to high-THC and high-CBD cannabis, but what about high-CBG strains? They are rare, but they exist.

Certain strains of European hemp (which produces high CBD) can carry a genetic mutation that causes the “CBD-gene” to become inactive, and the plant accumulates cannabigerol instead of CBD.Botanists have shown this is a recessive trait, but it’s still possible to harness CBG-producing genetics for patients and dispensaries around the world.

Arrest of 94-year-old Veteran for Felony Marijuana Charges Highlights Absurdity of Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

The War on Drugs may have reached its pinnacle of absurdity when 94-year-old World War II veteran Douglas Ponischil was arrested for felony marijuana charges earlier this year.  The pot had been mailed to his home on someone else’s behalf, and law enforcement swept him up with no further investigation.

The case against Mr. Ponischil, who miraculously survived a Nazi U-Boat attack, was dismissed on June 30 after months of negotiating with prosecutors by attorney Christopher Connelly.

Only in a thoroughly immoral and baseless system of prohibition can something like this happen.  What began in the late 1970s as a crusade against “the devil’s candy” is now well-known as a miserable failure.  That is, unless you are interested in giving the State tremendous power and billions of dollars in civil asset forfeiture.  The shell of purported righteousness has fallen away from the War on Drugs to reveal its sickly core.

An analysis released five days ago by the Pew Charitable Trusts confirmed the ineffectiveness and waste of the drug war.  The report, titled “Federal Drug Sentencing Laws Bring High Cost, Low Return,” describes how mass incarceration, mandatory minimums, and billions of dollars per year have done nothing to curb drug use or supply, while caging tens of thousands for minor roles in trafficking.

Would Donald Trump Be A Marijuana Friendly President?

If you follow politics, or for that matter if you follow any media outlet in America, then you know that the 2016 Election is in full swing, and there are a number of candidates that are running for President of the United States. The candidate that has been receiving the most attention lately, for better or worse depending on how you feel about him, is clearly Donald Trump. Donald Trump has been a long time businessman, has been a reality TV star, and is one of the most controversial figures in America right now. Putting all of his other political views aside, how does he feel about marijuana?

As seems to be the case on a lot of things with Donald Trump, the answer is not exactly clear. Donald Trump has made conflicting statements over the years in regards to marijuana. Tom Angell highlighted some of those statements in an article that he wrote for Marijuana.Com:

In 1990, Trump called for legalizing all drugs. ”We’re losing badly the war on drugs. You have to legalize drugs to win that war,” he said. “You have to take the profit away from these drug czars… What I’d like to do maybe by bringing it up is cause enough controversy that you get into a dialogue on the issue of drugs so people will start to realize that this is the only answer; there is no other answer.”

But at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump stated that he’s against the legalization of marijuana. ”I think it’s bad, and I feel strongly about that,” he said. “They’ve got a lot of problems going on right now in Colorado, some big problems.” However, when asked about the states’ rights aspect to marijuana laws, Trump said, “If they vote for it, they vote for it.

“Medical marijuana is another thing,” he added. “I think medical marijuana, 100 percent.”
