People spend a lot of money on the pieces that they want to smoke out of. Collections can be valued at well in to the thousands of dollars, depending on how dedicated the stoner is. Not only that but artists work hard to ensure that their products wind up in good hands, sometimes spending long amounts of time on custom pieces for people. Regardless of price, however, glass is very important to stoners and something like that should not be messed with.
Unfortunately, it seems as if there has been a lot of thievery of glass amongst the stoner community. Between random break ins at people's residences or those sneaky scammers that claim they're collecting items for a "giveaway". People like this are a disgrace to the cannabis community and don't deserve to call themselves stoners. Stealing in general is wrong but stealing from fellow stoners? That's the lowest of low. Your best bet is to spot thieves quickly. Knowing some key signs can help you from getting your prized pieces stolen.
If you're interested in doing a contest with someone on a social networking site, it's usually very easy to peg someone sneaky. Look at the person's feed. If they've already hosted contests, check out the winners. If previous winners have received their prizes and seem happy, the person behind the page is probably okay. However, a page that never showcases their contest winners is a definite red flag. And if you check out the winners and they don't have their prizes, another sign that the person you're thinking of dealing with is a bad choice.
For the real life situations, it's a good idea to keep your home a secret from certain people. Don't invite a friend of a friend of a friend over and if you have a big collection, don't be throwing parties or anything where the glass is in sight of lots of people. If you value your glass, you won't want to be showing it off. Use it as much as you like. But showing it off gives people the idea that you're lax about your pieces and they will think that it's easier to rip off your things.
Keep you glass collection close. Having a good amount of glass comes with a lot of responsibilities. By not being smart about your stuff, you're asking for your stuff to wind up stolen. Unfortunately, even the most careful stoners fall victim to this awful kind of person. Just be as careful as you can with the things that you work hard for. Successful stoners definitely deserve nice things!

New Study Finds Cannabinoids May Treat Osteoarthritis
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
A study published in this month’s issue of the European Journal of Neurosciencehas found that cannabinoids may be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis.
According to the study; “Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease associated with articular cartilage degradation. The major clinical outcome of osteoarthritis is a complex pain state that includes both nociceptive and neuropathic mechanisms.”
It continues; “Currently, the therapeutic approaches for osteoarthritis are limited as no drugs are available to control the disease progression and the analgesic treatment has restricted efficacy. Increasing evidence from preclinical studies supports the interest of the endocannabinoid system as an emerging therapeutic target for osteoarthritis pain. Indeed, pharmacological studies have shown the anti-nociceptive effects of cannabinoids in different rodent models of osteoarthritis, and compelling evidence suggests an active participation of the endocannabinoid system in the pathophysiology of this disease.”
“The ubiquitous distribution of cannabinoid receptors, together with the physiological role of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of pain, inflammation and even joint function further support the therapeutic interest of cannabinoids for osteoarthritis.”
Researchers for the study conclude that; “This review summarizes the promising results that have been recently obtained in support of the therapeutic value of cannabinoids for osteoarthritis management.”

Dry Weed Is No Good
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
Stoners pride themselves on their dank, sticky weed. But what if you've got to keep your buds stored for a long amount of time? Even a few days in the jar can cause your weed to crumble at the slightest touch. You want to be packing your joints with weed, not weed dust. Here are a few of the best ways to keep your weed in your jar and not blowing away at the faintest breath of wind.
These are super cheap and can be found at your local headshop or cigar store, depending on what's closest to you. Usually, they're around $1.00 a pack and last a good amount of time, providing that you don't leave your jar open all the time. These packs also come in different variations of humidity so you can keep your weed super dank or just at an acceptable level.
One Dense Nug;
Some stoners report that by taking a single dense nug and dropping it in to the jar with the dried out weed will eventually make the entire jar a little more humid, evening out the amount of dampness in the jar. This method isn't proven so don't hold me to this one!!
By adding in some peels of citrus, whether lemon or orange, you can gain some moisture back in to dry weed. Get a container smaller then your weed jar and put some holes in the lid (or cover it with plastic wrap). Put this smaller container inside the jar with your bud in it and let it sit for a few hours. After that amount of time, take the peels out to prevent mold. You should have added a little bit of dank back in to your weed and you won't complain about the citrusy smell (if you "burp" your jar intermittently, this smell will dissipate providing that you don't let the citrus peels touch your weed).
While this is usually a technique used to keep brown sugar from clumping together, it had been said that putting a piece of bread in the jar will get back just the right amount of moisture, giving you some good bud to smoke on rather then some ancient dusty nugs.
With no smell and no flavor, lettuce is great for keeping bud damp. Only leave the lettuce in jar for a short amount of time. If you leave it for too long, it can promote mildew growth in the jar and you can ruin all of your weed.
