Cannabis Receptors; An Evolutionary Mistake?
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, October, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
Smoking marijuana has been an accepted practice by many different cultures for thousands of years. Of course, some people try to keep cannabis from reaching the public. Cannabis is considered an eye opening substance, much like mushrooms. It broadens the acceptance of ideas in a person's head and allows people to accept other possibilities other than what they're told. While this seems like an incredibly amazing thing, there are those that don't want citizens to be able to think freely.
Getting stoned goes far beyond the fact that "it feels good". We get high because we're built to get stoned... Literally. Our bodies, as well as the bodies of every other animal with the exception of bugs, has a cannabinoid system built in. The brain automatically bonds with THC and produces it's own endocannabinoids. If you believe in evolution, then this system had to have appeared for a reason, right? We must have utilized cannabis much more at some point in our history, as the system is still present in every human that is born.
Oddly enough, the cannabinoid receptor in life forms seems to have developed long before pot was even around on the planet. 550 million years before, in fact. If the cannabinoid system and receptors in the brain were an evolutionary mistake, then there must be a reason as to why the system is still around. Evolution produces traits that make living easier. Life on this planet must need cannabinoids to make functioning better.
600 million years ago, when the cannabis system first appeared, the following 75 million years had a surge of evolution for life on the planet. Oddly, these events seem to coincide. It is suspected that the appearance of cannabinoid receptors and the accelerated rate of change in life are related. Evolution's sole purpose is to improve life by changing things. If the receptors improved life on earth that drastically, there is a very solid reason why we should be using the plant on a daily basis. It improves life and everyone knows that life is extremely difficult these days. If it's possible to improve the quality of life just by ingesting a plant to make our own endocannabinoids stronger and better equipped to help make us happy.
So if the cannabinoid receptors were an evolutionary mistake, then it was an extremely good mistake. The fact that our bodies can process CBD and THC so well that it can kill cancer cells and completely eradicate depression and anxiety, among so many other benefits, is incredible. People are afraid to accept that our bodies are ready to process cannabis in an extremely positive way.
No Super Bowl Ad For NORML
Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
In a move that seems unfair to say the least, Intuit is not advancing NORML to the third round of it’s Super Bowl Ad Contest. NORML received a ton of media coverage after it won first place in round one of the contest. One would think that taking first place in the first round, and the media love that ensued, would ensure that NORML would at least make it to the top 20 overall contestants for round 3, but sadly, that wasn’t the case.
Marijuana is more popular than just about anything right now, and it would have been a great thing to see a marijuana Super Bowl ad. Below is NORML’s reaction to the news. I encourage all TWB readers to tweet and post Facebook messages directed at Intuit:
Today, Intuit announced the 20 finalists who moved on to Round 3 of their “Small Business, Big Game” contest. Despite finishing first in the initial round of public voting (Intuit removed the ability to sort by vote popularity during the second round) and generating hundreds of media hits through Round 2, Intuit, for reasons not communicated to NORML, decided not to advance our entry to the latest round in the contest.
(NOTE: Intuit had opened the contest up to non-profit organizations, which NORML is. We also met their requirements in both staff and budget for being a “small business”)
“It is unfortunate that Intuit seems to be relying more on outdated political values instead of overwhelming public opinion when it comes to selecting which entries advanced in their contest,” noted NORML Communications Director Erik Altieri, “As demonstrated by the outpouring of support and positive media coverage for our entry, the country was ready and eager to see an ad for sensible marijuana law reforms during the most watched TV program of the year. This could’ve been a win for all groups involved, but instead Intuit will likely have only generated ill will for itself amongst the 58% of Americans who now support ending our country’s war on marijuana.”

Canna Goo Balls Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, October, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
Snacks are the best thing to make containing cannabis. Not only are you getting high but you're curing the munchies at the same time. By eating weed, you save time and manage to not eat as much because you're already full! This recipe for Canna Goo Balls is absolutely amazing. You're missing out if you don't give this recipe a try!
What You'll Need;
1-2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
3 tbsp Honey
3 Cups of Oats
1 1/2 Cups Cannabis
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
First, melt the cannabutter in the microwave. Do this in short increments. If the butter is exposed to too much heat, some of the THC will escape and the butter won't be as potent. While you're melting the butter, combine the peanut butter, oats, cinnamon, cocoa, and honey in a larger bowl. Once the butter has completely melted, add it to the bigger bowl and stir everything together.
This recipe is super simple and the only other step that you need to take is putting them in the freezer. You have two choices. You can put the whole bowl in the freezer and let them freeze in a large mass. This method is good if you prefer to eat ice cream right out of the tub. Just make sure that you have a good container that seals well. The other way that you can go about this is to roll the mixture in to small balls and freeze them that way. Whichever method you choose, this treat will cure hunger and get you baked!
