Seven Terpenes Found In Cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 18th 2014 by THCFinder

seven-terpens-in-cannabis

The first thought in your head is probably "what the hell is a terpene?" Fair question. Terpenes are a widespread group of what's called organic hydro carbons and are produced by many plants that we find in the world today. Also, there are terpenoids that are terpenes that have been chemically modified. This chemically modified group includes the cannabinoids. When you light the plants on fire, this causes the chemical reaction, leading the plant to cause an effect on the person that is inhaling.

Effects of the terpenes and terpenoids to animals vary but are widespread and extremely positive. From characteristics like anti-microbial, anti-oxident, anti-carcinogenic, painkillers, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and in the case of our favorite plant, psychoactive, terpenes are definitely an asset... For the most part. It's important to be aware that there are some poisons ones out there that act as natural pest control but can also be dangerous to pets, such as the poison hemlock tree.

In cannabis alone, there are 120 different kinds of terpenes. The levels of each one varies, from just a little bit found to a whole lot. The terpenes are located in the trichomes, which is also the spot where the THC resides. The trichomes give weed that glittery shiny look that stoners love so much and also harbor the psychoactive ingredients that are needed to achieve pothead bliss. For those of you that grow, this is why harvest should happen early in the morning! As the day goes on and light/heat increase, there are more and more terpenes being vaporized by the sun. Here are seven of the 120 terpenes that are found in the cannabis plant.

1. Caryophyllene gives off a spicy yet sweet aroma that could also be called woodsy, maybe with a hint of pepper. It's a very homey smell that permeates some buds and once you crack them open, you get a whiff of what smells like a secluded little cabin tucked away in the woods of Colorado somewhere. It's definitely a great smell. In addition, it can be used topically in clove oil to assist with inflammation as well as a treatment for toothache. Caryophyllene is also the terpene that drug dogs are taught to smell for, since THC doesn't actually smell like anything.

2. Borneol is very menthol, laced with traces of camphor and pine. Borneol is found primarily in cinnamon and wormwood and is used as a calming sedative in Chinese medicine. The borneol terpene is directed to assist with recovery and fatigue, improving the energy of the user.

3. Limonene resembles that citrus smell, which is definitely craved in the pothead community. Weed that smells like fruit? Hell yeah. Limonene is what causes this with it's lemon/lime/orange scent. With a slight hint of peppermint as well, limonene repels predators and is what is found in the rinds of citrus fruits, among others. When paired with other terpenes, limonene becomes anti-bacterial and can also fight off fungus, cancer causing agents, and depression. It also promotes the absorption of other terpenes in to the body by allowing them to quickly penetrate cell membranes. One more thing? This terpene may be the reason that physically smoking marijuana doesn't cause cancerous problems in the lungs.

4. Myrcene is very earthy and resembles cloves but also with a tropical mango-ish scent. This makes a lot of sense, as Myrcene can also make the smoker more high if ingested prior to the session. It is suggested that you ingest a mango one hour prior to smoking to get the best experience possible from your weed.

5. Delta3Carene is used a lot in aroma therapy to dry excess liquid such as tears, runny noses, perspiration, and menstrual cycles. It smells sweet and piney, something definitely comforting. This terpene is what causes the dry eyes/dry mouth (cottonmouth) that some stoner experience after smoking.

6. Cineole/Eucalyptol smells of spicy mint but leaves you feeling pretty refreshed. Thought to be the cause of the cannabis creativity effect, cineole and eucalyptol are used to increase circulation and pain relief. It is fast acting, crossing the blood brain barrier to trigger a response in the brain faster than other terpenes.

7. Linalool smells of lily, citrus, and candied spice. This terpene is the calming effect of cannabis, giving the user the sedative and anti-anxiety effects that are so sought after in cannabis consumption. This effect is also cause by lavender.

Why Stoners Will Love Lucy

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, August, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
stoners-will-love-lucy
Movies are a huge part of the pothead society. We love to watch flicks, what can we say? There are tons of movies out there that people consider stoner classics but the market is a cutthroat one and rivaling for the short attention span of smokers is tough. But thanks to the director of The Fifth Element (another awesome stoner movie that you should watch if you haven't by now) Luc Besson, the new Scarlett Johansen movie may prove to be something that stoners really enjoy. Be careful reading though... This contains some spoilers that you won't want to read if you haven't seen it!
 
"Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?" is what Lucy says during the opening scenes, over the prehistoric dawn of man. A question that stoners seem to ask a lot, this would definitely appeal to most of the potheads that I know. Be sure that you've got your weed stocked up before watching this movie, as I heard that it's not as good if you're not baked. But with the futuristic cityscape of Taipei, the movie does a good job of drawing you in so at least they've got your attention. It's a little futuristic, a little "today", and definitely for stoners.
 
Lucy is basically forced to work for Korean gangsters and starts to smuggle drugs, something that a lot of stoners may be able to relate to (not smuggling so much but almost everyone I know that smokes weed has also sold it at some point in their lives). Against her choice, Lucy is forced to ingest bags of magical drugs that look like blue crystals, called CPH4. The drugs cause mind bending experiences, rivaling the drug that the movie may or may have not been subliminally named after.
 
When the drugs enter Lucy's system, not only does she suddenly defy gravity as the transformation happens, her eyes begin to flash in crazy cosmic shifts, including galaxies, animal eyes, and other strange images projected. She begins to see how the trees grow, how cell phones operate, and how the human body functions. Flashback to the Matrix and Neo, the One, who could see bodies made of binary code. Lucy also gains the ability to slow down and speed up time, basically making her a remote control to the universe.
 
You may like the movie or you may not. Whatever the case is, it's definitely recommended that you give it a shot. Be sure that you get nice and baked to ensure that you have a somewhat good time. Grab your popcorn (medicate that shit if you can), maybe a medicated lemonade drink, and get to watching!

Anti-Medical Marijuana Group Suggests Marijuana Edibles Will Lead To Rape

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 15th 2014 by THCFinder

The battle to legalize medical marijuana in Florida has been contentious. Both sides have raised millions of dollars. The ‘No on 2′ campaign, which opposes medical marijuana, has used some shady campaign tactics to try to scare voters into voting ‘no’ on Election Day. For instance, anti-medical marijuana supporters in Florida have suggested that marijuana leads to gay sex and AIDS. That’s despicable, even for politics.

The ‘No on 2′ campaign has rolled out a new tactic which is something right out of the Reefer Madness movie. The ‘No on 2′ campaign released an image suggesting that if medical marijuana is legalized, then marijuana cookies will become the new date rape drug of choice by predators. Below is the image:

I wish I was making this stuff up, but unfortunately, I’m not. Never mind that patients are suffering in Florida. Never mind that medical marijuana can help many of these people, and reduce their dependency on harmful pharmaceuticals. Instead of focusing on the facts and the science, the ‘No on 2′ campaign is relying on outright scare tactics in an attempt to trick voters into thinking that medical marijuana will lead to date rape. To say I’m disgusted is a huge understatement.

The new tactic, and every tactic for that matter, used by the ‘No on 2′ campaign is a disgrace, and highlights just how desperate they are. Almost half of the United States has already legalized medical marijuana, yet I have never heard of a ‘cookie date rape epidemic’ happening anywhere. This campaign strategy is wrong, offensive, and should not be tolerated. Vote yes on 2!
