Medicated Stir Fry
Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, January, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
Healthy eating is important in the life of a stoner! Stir fry has always been a favorite of mine and now you can make it medicated! It's a far cry from the food we made in Home Ec in middle school but it tastes even better, now that we're old enough not to burn the veggies to the pan. You can add in veggies or meats if you feel like it and of course, more bud if you feel inclined. Just always remember that eating cannabis is much different than smoking cannabis and you should always know your tolerance before eating too much!
What You'll Need;
1/2 oz fresh herbal seasoning of your choice
1 Green Pepper
2- 4oz butter or cannabutter
1 Yellow Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1/2 small onion
First, take the three peppers and cut them in to strips, about 1/2 inch wide and the proceed to chop the onion in to small pieces. Put all of the veggies (and meats if you so choose) in to a skillet and add in your Cannabutter. You can replace the butter with cannabis infused olive oil, as well, if you want to be a little more health conscious. Sauté everything until cooked well and then serve the mix over rice or noodles or alone if you'd like. As for the leftover oil in the pan, you can pour it over the rice/veggie/meat mix to ensure that you get the most out of your meal! Enjoy your medicated stir fry!
Could Cannabis Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
A study published by the National Institute of Health has found that cannabinoid receptor activation – something done naturally by cannabis – may provide a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term disease that causes inflammation of the joints and tissues.
“Recent studies have suggested immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2R) activation”, states the study’s abstract.
Despite these recent studies, researchers say that the connection between these cannabinoid receptors and rheumatoid arthritis has been much less observed, leading them to conduct this study.
According to their researchers, data suggests that “CB2R may be a potential therapeutic target of RA [rheumatoid arthritis].”
The study will appear in this month’s issue of the Oxford journal Rheumatology. and was conducted by researchers at Changhai Hospital, the Second Military Medical University and Shanghai Guanghua Hospital, all in China.

Agent Leaves DEA For Medical Marijuana Business
Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
Facts and studies are hard to deny. As more information about marijuana is released, it becomes harder for those that doubt to continue their disregard for the simple truth; that cannabis can help to better life for the human race. Ever so slowly, the enlightenment of this fact spreads not just in the US but all over the world, a fact which has been made apparent by Patrick Moen, a former DEA agent who's genuinely switched side because he didn't feel like he was fighting the right fight. Moen, among others, are beginning to realize that fighting against marijuana is a losing battle.
While most DEA members are very vocal about their disdain for marijuana, Moen recently decided to abandon his position at the DEA to work with a Seattle. Washington based company called Privateer Holdings. It's an investment firm that primarily deals in the cannabis industry, funding small businesses that are trying to get in to the legal weed business. Privateer Holdings has been working with these new companies since 2010 and Moen saw it as a chance to get involved with a positive change. Even after ten years with the DEA, he realized that this change is inevitable and he wanted to help.
Moen said that over the course of his years spent at the DEA, he began to realize that "targeting marijuana was not an effective use of resources". Common knowledge to stoners everywhere, as arresting the basically harmless potheads while hardcore drug addicts rob pharmacies and get away with it seems to be a common occurrence. Moen actually supervised teams of DEA agents in both Washington and Oregon, working to put cannabis users behind bars. However, Moen told the Wall Street Journal that "the potential social and financial returns are enormous".
Support like this is what the cannabis community needs to convince the more stubborn people about the benefits of the plant. Having a DEA agent that has been in the business for over a decade, learning and listening to the war on drugs, decide that he would rather support the marijuana industry is huge. Others have changed their views on the subject as well, like the highest ranking DEA agent in Oregon until 2010, Paul Schmidt, another officer that quit and is now working as a medical marijuana business consultant. If more people like Moen and Schmidt come forward, it could really help to boost the positive light that cannabis seems to be basking in lately.
