Five Great Stoner Movies
Category: Fun | Posted on Sat, December, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
Movies are a large part of pothead culture. Let's face it, getting baked and watching movie sounds like a good time, especially if you're stocked up on munchies. There are some classic films out there that every stoner loves. The following is a list of five of some of the best ones. If you have a suggestion for a further film, feel free to share it with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll start making up a second part!
1. Grandma's Boy
This film was fantastic. Hilariously funny, it follows the hazy story of a pothead video game designer who's constantly battling his nemesis JT, a dude who thinks that he's a robot. With an epic cast, if you haven't seen this one yet, you should probably get to it!
2. Half Baked
Dave Chapelle makes this one perfect with his loud humor. When one of the members of a group of friends murders a diabetic police horse, the other three members start stealing medical marijuana to sell and help bail their friend out. While at the same time, Chapelle falls in love with a girl who hates marijuana... Ironically named Mary Jane.
3. Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke
The most famous stoner duo obviously needs a mention on this list! Up In Smoke is about the adventure that Cheech and Chong take in the marijuana van (It's actually made of marijuana!). The two are trying to get from Mexico to LA with the ever annoying Sgt Stedenko on their trail.
4. Evil Bong
While it's not the most convincing movie ever made, it is pretty amusing to watch. This film is about a bong that traps the soul of the user in a crazy strip club fantasy where the strippers are killers, among other strange things. This movie also features Chong as the voice of the haunted piece.
5. Fast Times At Ridgemont High
A favorite of stoners of all ages! This movie follows a few different stories of teens in their high school years. The ups, downs, and everything else. Everyone's favorite is Spicoli, the super pothead orders pizza while in class. Definitely a stoner classic, watch this movie if you haven't already.
Music In The Grow Room
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
For anyone who grows any kind of plant, they've probably heard the idea of playing music near the plants stimulates a positive response from the plant. Depending on the kind of music, the plants grow bigger and stronger, giving the grower a bigger yield. But the growth of the plant depends on the kind of music that is played for the plant, with some genres producing extremely satisfying results in the plants.
The original experiment was done in different rooms, where single tones were played. The first room had a steady tone playing for multiple hours. In the second room, the tone was played for a few hours and then shut off for a few hours. The third chamber had no tone playing. It was found that the plants in the first chamber not only died, but died quickly, while the plants in the second chamber grew the fastest and most healthy. The plants in the last chamber grew at about a normal rate. When the tones were changed to smooth relaxing music compared to rock music, the smooth music plants actually grew towards the radios in the room, while the rock music plants died within 15 days.
There are vineyards around the world that are installing speakers above their grapes that play classical music. The grapes next to the speakers are growing larger than those away from the speakers. It's an incredibly positive response but only happens with the classical, more calming music. So if you can, putting a music playing device in the grow room probably isn't such a bad idea. Even if the plants don't show a huge difference in growth, at least your grow room will be ambient and calming.
Remember that if you're going to play music, it should be played intermittently throughout the day. Continuous music may have negative effects on the plants and you don't want that. With some low volume classical, hopefully your plants will respond in a good way. There are skeptics who disbelieve the experiments done to test this theory, so trying it out for yourself is probably your best bet.
Worlds Leading Experts Issue Standards On Cannabis, Restore Classification As Botanical Medicine
Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
In an historic move, the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) released the first installation of a two-part Cannabis monograph yesterday that classifies cannabis (marijuana) as a botanical medicine, alongside many other widely accepted Complementary and Alternative Medicines. Written and reviewed by the world’s leading experts, the Cannabis monograph brings together an authoritative compendium of scientific data, including long-awaited standards for the plant’s identity, purity, quality, and botanical properties. The monograph provides a foundation for health care professionals to integrate cannabis therapy into their practices on the basis of a full scientific understanding of the plant, its constituent components, and its biologic effects.
“The inclusion of cannabis in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia returns the plant to its place alongside as a proven botanical medicine, which has been used for centuries by countries and cultures around the world,” said Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, which helped support the development of the Cannabis monograph. “Health care professionals, researchers and regulators now have the tools to develop effective public health programs for medical marijuana and to further explore its therapeutic benefits.” ASA will host a Google Hangout on Thursday, December 12th at 5:30pm PT, featuring a panel of experts discussing the ramifications of the Cannabis monograph and a new Cannabis certification program.
The first Cannabis monograph was introduced in the 3rd edition of the U.S. Pharmacopoeia in 1851, where it remained until the 12th edition in 1942, making the AHP monograph the first of its kind in more than 70 years. Cannabis medicines were produced by Eli Lilly and other American pharmaceutical companies until the federal Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 sharply reduced U.S. cannabis production and prescriptions.
AHP began development of a Cannabis monograph in 2011 in part because of a need for validated standards to guide laboratory analysis for quality control of cannabis and related products. However, AHP also recognized that the expanding use of medical marijuana makes accurate information regarding appropriate use and safety important for health care decisions. Patients, providers, and regulators will also benefit from proven testing standards that can quantify the key chemical compounds, or cannabinoids, that are tied to the plant’s therapeutic effects, as well as identify potentially harmful pesticides, metals, and microbes.
