Thanksgiving Canna-Recipes; Medicated Gravy
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, November, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
Gravy is basically required for a Thanksgiving meal. It''s what makes the turkey taste that much better. Not feeling very motivated to medicate everything on your table this year? Simply medicating the gravy will get you and your family/friends stoned enough to still have room for dessert!
What You'll Need;
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
2 large onions, sliced thin
½ cup balsamic vinegar
Turkey, chicken or vegetable stock
1/3 cup flour
2 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
6 Tbsp cannabutter
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Grab a large skillet and melt your cannabutter over medium heat. Watch it closely. Add in your sliced onions and sauté them for about ten minutes. Then, toss in the rosemary and sage and cook for another ten minutes. Gradually add in the flour and whisk the mixture for a minute. Slowly whisk in the stock and begin to boil the mix until it begins to thicken. Stir everything frequently. Grab the pan that you used to cook the turkey in and pour the juices out in to a cup. Spoon off the fat that rises to the top and pour the juices in with the gravy.
In your roasting pan, add vinegar. Bring that to a simmer over medium, scraping up the browned bits left behind. Pour this new mixture in to a small sauce pan. Boil it for about 3 minutes and then add it in to the gravy. Stir it together well. Add salt and pepper for seasoning if you choose.

Study shows marijuana's potential for treating autoimmune disorders
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study from researchers at the University of South Carolina provides evidence that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a principal ingredient in marijuana, may be beneficial in treating those with autoimmune disorders.
The study, published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, is the first to explore how tiny, yet powerful molecules called microRNAs are influenced by THC. MicroRNAs are a recently discovered class of non-coding RNAs that play a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression. The ability to alter microRNA expression could hold the key to successful treatments for a whole host of autoimmune diseases, including arthritis, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes.
The study was performed by researchers from USC's School of Medicine by injecting laboratory mice with THC and analyzing 609 microRNAs. The researchers identified 13 unique microRNAs that were highly altered by THC.
MicroRNAs have profound effects on the immune system, acting as 'brakes' that target more than 60 percent of all gene expression. Since microRNAs normally suppress the expression of genes, when a microRNA is overexpressed, the affected gene gets silenced. But when microRNA is turned off, the affected gene is expressed at an elevated level.
The authors also studied how a specific microRNA—miRNA-690—that was highly overexpressed in response to THC functionally targets an important protein called C/EBPα. This molecule in turn triggers unique cells known as MDSC that suppress inflammation. When the researchers successfully knocked down miRNA-690, the effect of THC was reversed.
