UMass Professor Blocked From Growing Marijuana For Medical Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
BOSTON — Although Massachusetts is now the 18th state to allow the medical use of marijuana, scientists continue to grapple with understanding the properties of the drug and developing pot into medicine. Some researchers blame the federal government for blocking more study that could clarify marijuana’s medicinal benefits. The federal government says marijuana has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse, and it recently upheld marijuana’s classification in the same category of drugs as heroin and LSD.
 
Lyle Craker is an agriculture professor at UMass Amherst who studies medicinal plants. For more than a decade, he’s tried to get permission from the federal government to grow marijuana for medical studies. Rick Doblin is founder and director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, or MAPS, which is sponsoring Craker’s efforts.
 
WBUR’s Deborah Becker spoke with Craker and Doblin, who said that some 40 years after researchers first touted marijuana’s medicinal benefits, they haven’t been able to get very far.

Death Star strain review and pics

Category: Nugs | Posted on Fri, February, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder

 

Death Star - Indica

 

Strain Name: Death Star OG 
 
Date Acquired: July 22, 2011
 
Grade: B+/A-
 
Type: Indica
 
Looks: "Thick," fat deep green nugs fluffy nugs with ample orange/red hair. A real nice two finger sticky bounce.
 
Smell: A mix of Khuynh-Deip Eucalyptus oil and nutmeg
 
Taste: Very smooth with similarities to sour lemon and fuel on the top of the palate. Hints of pink lemonade on the after taste that changes up to sour lip puckering lemon causing dry mouth.
 
Buzz Type: Heady with full body tingle and a bit of pressure sensation (behind the eyes). Euphoric.
 
Buzz Length: Average to Above Average (1 to 1.5 hours)
 
Summary:
 
* Talk about an "interesting" strain... 
 
Death Star OG does not always hit right away. The moment you think, "Ah man... this bud is not..." then BAM! Out of nowhere I was encased in full body tingle quickly followed by dry mouth. This strain hit me more like a really solid hybrid with that kush quality of "eye pressure" relief combined with a tingly, euphoric full body experience that actually provided me with energy. Around half a hour into a bowl, I felt very "jumpy" - Full tingle experiences is most intense around this time.
 
But... not enough "legs," but at peak intensity "buzz" is very good. About half hour at most. The intensity of buzz varied slightly with the one larger nug not hitting as hard as the others.
 
Pinching the fresh nug left a stickiness on my fingers and when needing to clear my allergy ridden nostrils, all I needed to do is take a deep sniff of the jar that this strain was stored in. Death Star OG did give me a serious case of "Yuck Mouth," so make sure to have gum and/or liquid or hand. If at home and leaving, I just felt the need to brush my teeth if medicating with this strain.
 
Worth a try if a "Marijuana Connoisseur" to experience what I felt overall was an "interesting" and a bit of a "trippy" buzz.
 
Cheers (& Cough),
