Medicated Apple Treats
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, October, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
In the spirit of fall, this recipe seems to be extremely appropriate. Apple picking is a popular pastime for smokers in the fall. You can't argue with so many objects to make pipes out of, plus hiding in the apple tree fields can be a fun and lovely experience. Fall is a great time for stoners and these medicated apple treats can be made after a day of apple picking!
What You'll Need;
4 Cored Apples
2 tbsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Cannabis
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Using a coffee grinder, turn the cannabis in to a fine powder. Be sure to use bud that is more dry than normal. Sticky weed is not a benefit in cooking situations. Take the butter, warm water, cannabis, and sugar and add them together in a blender. Blend them together until they form a paste-like substance. Add what's in the blender in to the middle of the apples. Place apples on a cookie sheet and put them in the over for 25 minutes on 350 degree heat. Upon removing the apples from the oven, sprinkle cinnamon over the tops of the apples. You can add whipped cream as well if you'd like and possibly a cherry. Enjoy these apple treats on a nice fall night with friends or next to a bonfire! Where ever you choose to eat them, you'll love them!
New research shows marijuana compounds do fight cancer
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
Debate is just beginning in Washington over how medical marijuana will be grown and distributed now that the rules for the recreational market are established. Meanwhile, research into medical benefits of compounds within the cannabis plant continues to show effectiveness.
Effectiveness against pain in its many forms and other side effects of major diseases – or the palliative side of marijuana use – have been pretty well established, but can marijuana directly take on a disease as big, scary and deadly as cancer?
“What we’ve shown using just a few of these (cannabis) compounds is that the effects against cancer are really profound. They really are,” said Dr. Wai Liu, a senior research fellow at St George’s University of London.
Quick note: Cannabinoids are the chemicals in marijuana that have effects in the body, some have psychoactive (or make you high) effects such as THC, and others such as CBD don’t have psychoactive effects but do interact with the body’s “cannabinoid receptors.” There are more than 85 “cannabinoids” in marijuana.
Liu’s most recent published research “explored the activity of six cannabinoids, used both alone and in combination in leukaemic cells.” The research was published in Anticancer Research: International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment.
He said the anticancer activity of THC has been “known for sometime” but that THC’s psychoactive effect or tendency to get you high limits its use as a cancer-fighting agent. That’s partly due to the negative social stigma about getting high and, of course, not everyone wants to experience a high.
So, he set out to explore the cancer fighting ability of other cannabinoids that don’t get you high.
“We have shown that these six other agents that lack psychoactivity are also just as effective as an anti-cancer agent,” he said. Chief among the six was cannabidiol or CBD.
His research found that “if you were to use one or two of these on their own, that would inhibit cancer growth. However, we’re clinicians. Not only do we want cancer to not grow, but we’re also wanting to see cell death.”
