Cannabinoids Can Treat Neuroinflammation
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study published in the journal Cell Immunology has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors - something done naturally by cannabis and cannabinoids – has neuroinflammatory capabilities.
According to the study; “Here we showed that Gp1a, a highly selective CB2 [cannabinoid receptor 2] agonist, with a four log higher affinity for CB2 than CB1, reduced clinical scores and facilitated recovery in EAE [experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, a disease of the central nervous system] in conjunction with long term reduction in demyelination and axonal loss.”
The study continues; “This is the first report on the in vivo CB2-mediated Gp1a inhibition of Th17/Th1 differentiation. We also confirmed the Gp1a-induced inhibition of Th17/Th1 differentiation in vitro, both in non-polarizing and polarizing conditions. The CB2-induced inhibition of Th17 differentiation is highly relevant in view of recent studies emphasizing the importance of pathogenic self-reactive Th17 cells in EAE/MS.
Researchers conclude that “the combined effect on Th17 differentiation and immune cell accumulation into the CNS, emphasize the relevance of CB2 selective ligands as potential therapeutic agents in neuroinflammation.”

Best Winter Smoke Spots
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, December, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
For most people, this time of year includes a world full of cold snow. Even though the temperature may be freezing, stoners still love to smoke in different places, even if it means bundling up! Winter is a gorgeous time of year for some people and smokers who deal with this white stuff six months out of the year always have a favorite spot to chill and smoke when it's cold outside. These are the top five places to smoke during the snowy winter!
Of course smoking in front of the fire place would be on this list! While some stoners don't have the liberty of being able to do this, those that can take full advantage. There's nothing like sitting in front of a nice warm fire while a snowstorm rages outside and you share a joint/bowl/bong with someone you care about, whether it be a boyfriend, girlfriend, or group of buddies.
Most people who live in snowy areas know how to make an igloo. What else are you going to do with the four feet of snow on the ground? Making an igloo not only provides a dope spot to toke, but you will be enjoying nature but yet staying out of the real cold. You can make igloos big enough for friends or just yourself. Just make sure that you make a chimney or the hot smoke may collapse your creation!
Hotboxing a car in a blizzard is an epic experience. Watching the snow fall can become a seriously time consuming activity. This situation can also be spent driving around but it's not recommended if it's actually snowing. Best to wait until the storm stops if you're going to cruise, otherwise it's fun just to park somewhere and get high.
Skiers and snowboarders alike love to smoke weed on the chairlift and it's pretty awesome. Sharing a joint while the lift takes you above the treetops is seriously epic. The scenery is great, the feeling of being on the mountain is great, and it's just an awesome place to be getting stoned.
If you have the option, taking a hike can be a cool way to get high. Roll a joint or a blunt, bundle up, and travel along the snowy woods. If it's just snowed, the woods get eerily quiet and definitely beautiful. Hikes are a favorite of cold weather stoners.

Light green buds with orange hairs and plenty of trichomes characterize Mercury OG. It helps with clarity of mind, but can lock you on the couch if you overdo it. Great for stress relief and pain as well; works for fibromyalgia.

Holidays call for small snacks to be served, especially if you're having a party! These cute little cakes can be served wrapped in little bows and make a great alternative to the traditional chocolate chip cookies or brownies! The recipe is simple and quick, which means that you'll have time to rush make them before friends arrive or you can save them for the New Years parties that will be coming up soon! You'll need cannabutter for this recipe so make sure that you have some or can make some before getting started!
What You'll Need;
2 tsp. Almond extract
½ lb. Marijuana Butter
1 ¾ cups sifted flour
½ cup plus 1 Tbs. Powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 30 degrees first! Take the powdered sugar and the cannabutter and whip them together. The substance should turn a light green color. Once it turns that color, whip in the almonds, a little bit of salt, and the vanilla. After that, toss in the chopped nuts and blend in the flour very lightly! Taking the mixture, form small balls about half the size of a ping pong ball and place them on a cookie sheet. Put them in the oven and cook them for about 25 minutes or until they turn a lightish brown color. Remove the treats from the oven once they're done and let them cool. Then give them a light dusting of powdered sugar and you're finished! These delicious treats will make a great addition to every party or perhaps just might make a great snack for yourself!
Cannabis enhances the good things in life = )
