THC In The Body

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, August, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
Even though the laws are beginning to change, some people are still stuck on the idea that marijuana should be illegal. What's worse is that some of these people happen to be the ones that sign our paychecks. That's right, the employers. Even residents of legal states still stand to lose their jobs if they're found to be using marijuana. Those who are looking for jobs need to refrain from smoking just in case their future employer requires them to pass a drug test. It's severely unfair and incredibly frustrating, especially those who use their cannabis for medical reasons that have no other alternative medicine.
When someone smokes, the THC is stored in their fat cells. So that means that almost everyone is different. Some people can pass a drug test within a few days of smoking while others will smoke, abstain for two months, take the test, and still fail. I personally have failed a drug test after more than two months of not smoking, something that I didn't think was possible (or my parents fudged it and lied to make me admit to smoking... Oh yeah did I mention my parents used to drug test me when I lived at home with them? Awesome...). But other times, I have been required to test for work related reasons and passed within a week of toking up. So even the individual varies from themselves. This makes it incredibly hard to pass drug tests for stoners, even those who just smoke to relax a bit at the end of each day.
There are three main ways that people will test an individual for cannabis use. The most common is the urine test. Pee in a cup, they tell you, so we can see what you've been doing by studying your bodily waste. If you're a light smoker, the THC usually will stay in your system for up to six days. Those that use a little bit more will have THC in their systems for up to thirteen days, daily users will test positive up to fifteen days or more after their last use and heavy users may take more than thirty days to clear the compound from their bodies. There is no designated time because, as said before, everyone is totally different.
Other ways that test for THC are the saliva test and the hair test. The saliva test will show THC use providing that the substance has been ingested no more than twelve hours prior. This method is probably not the one that will be used to test for jobs, seeing as how it's not as accurate for longer time frames. The hair follicle test is also something that occasionally gets used to test people for THC consumption. This method involves taking hair from the person that is in question and testing it for THC. Since THC doesn't always bind to hair follicle, this method isn't looked at as the most accurate but a hair test will show THC use after seven days and stay in the hair for up to (or possibly more than) ninety days.
THC testing is an invasion of patients rights. If employers are not testing for alcohol or tobacco use, there should be no reason why employees can't get stoned when they're not working (or when they are, depending on what job it is). To deny people jobs simply because they enjoy lighting a plant on fire is completely unconstitutional. Even the government is having issues with their THC testing policy, seeing as how they tried to hire computer geniuses to fight cyber terrorists and couldn't hire the best of the best because (you guessed it), they were potheads. If you're worried about passing a drug test, the best advice that I can give you is to use fake urine. Other methods may work for some and not others so the fake stuff is the best bet.

Purple Kush - Indica

This pure indica medicinal strain comes from California. In that state's medical community she is considered an "elite clone", meaning that it is only available as a cutting. Not to worry if you are a medical marijuana patient in California - this strain can be found at various dispensaries throughout the state. Patients there praise Purple Kush's deep body stone as a good treatment for pain and depression.


Chronic Chai Drink Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Wed, August, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
When you're trying to relax, or just need a dope drink for your daily grind, the chronic chai is sure to be a good choice. The drink can either boost your mood or chill you out, depending on what situation you're in and can be served both hot and cold. The recipe is super simple and you can multiply or divide the recipe as you need to, in order to make ore of less of this delicious drink (but of course you're making double, right?!).
What You'll Need:
1 tbsp instant coffee
6 cardamom pods
1-2 grams finely ground hash
4 cups of milk
3 cinnamon sticks
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon allspice
Take all of your ingredients and put them in to a medium sized saucepan. Simmer everything together, making sure to avoid the liquid boil. If it does boil, you risk losing the effects of the hash that you've added, therefore making your drink less potent. Only keep it on the heat for about 5 minutes and be sure that the burner is on low while you do this. After the 5 minutes is up, let the mixture steep for 25 minutes, letting everything soak together. Then strain everything through a clean strainer. You can either store the mixture cold or drink it hot, whichever you prefer. Enjoy!


The Culture of Marijuana in 1969

Which State Smokes The Most Marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, August, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
smoking-marijuanaThere’s a new ‘National Survey on Drug Use and Health’ out, which shows how many citizens in each state reported smoking marijuana monthly. Which state has the highest marijuana consumption per capita? It’s not the state you would think. I would have guessed a West Coast state or Colorado. However, it turns out that Rhode Island has the highest marijuana use per capita in the United States. Per the Washington Post:
State-level statistics from the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health (rather unfortunately acronymed NSDUH) show that just over 1 in 8 Rhode Island residents over age 12 smoke marijuana monthly. This is more than three times the rate in Kansas, where only 4 percent of residents regularly indulge.
Nationally about 7 percent of Americans over age 12 have used marijuana in the past month. Western states tend to have the highest rate of usage, at 9 percent, followed by the Northeast. The South has the lowest overall rate at 5.83 percent.
I was pleased to see that Oregon and Alaska have the highest rate of consumption per capita for people over the age of 25. 11.18% of Alaskans over the age of 25 reported that they consumed marijuana in the last month. Oregon came in at 10.25% in the same category. Why does this please me? Because Oregon and Alaska will be voting on marijuana legalization this November, and a higher consumption rate among those over 25 could translate to ‘yes’ votes in November. There’s no way to know for sure, but it’s encouraging.
This report does not mean that Rhode Island consumes more total marijuana than any other state. It’s per capita, and considering how small Rhode Island is, there’s no way it smokes the most total marijuana. I would suspect that California still has that title, due to the fact that they not only have the largest population, but also marijuana is everywhere in California. I don’t know how easy it is to get marijuana in Rhode Island, but it’s extremely easy in California. All in all, it’s still surprising to see Rhode Island at the top of any list for marijuana, per capita or otherwise.

It is a very potent and powerful variety of cannabis, available on the top of all Dutch coffee shop menus. The buzz is powerful and energetic yet social, be prepared for a strong high.
