CBD: The Cinderella Molecule

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

“This changes everything!”

That was the immediate reaction of Bay Area journalist Fred Gardner as he stood in the office of Steep Hill Laboratory in Oakland and eyed a chromatogram showing the unusual cannabinoid content of a hitherto unknown marijuana strain. The year was 2009, and the strain of interest, an oddity called Soma A-Plus, didn’t top the charts for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a.k.a. the high-causer, unlike the several thousand other bud samples that Steep Hill had previously tested for California’s medical marijuana dispensaries and growers.

Soma A-Plus was the first of a handful of soon-to-be-discovered strains imbued with a significant amount of cannabidiol (CBD), a compound with intriguing medical properties. One of these strains, Women’s Collective Stinky Purple, tipped the scales at over 10 percent CBD by dry weight, with little THC. This genetic anomaly wasn’t hemp—it was a drug plant, a high-resin, CBD-rich marijuana strain brimming with medicated goo. But anyone who smoked it or consumed it as an edible wouldn’t get high, because CBD isn’t psychoactive. In fact, CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the THC high, depending on how much of each compound is in a given strain or product.

Former NBA Player Stephen Jackson Used Marijuana While Playing

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, February, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson used marijuana before hitting the court throughout his career, and at least one of his coaches was well aware.

The admission came during an appearance on the I Am Rapaport podcast.

“We’re in Utah and the drug test people are around, you know, to get our last drug test, so we can smoke, right? And Don Nelson, we talked about weed all the time, he was cool with talking about weed. We got our last test in Utah, right? So me and [teammate]Baron [Davis] are coming out the locker room just screaming, excited, right, with our last pink slip saying we could smoke for the rest of the season. And Don Nelson hauls ass down there giving us high-fives like, ‘Yeah, we can smoke now!’ It was cool, the fact that he knows what’s going on and off the court with his players, which was great, man. We enjoyed it. And that’s why we were a great team.”

New Study Shows Pot Can Help Kick Tobacco and Other Habits

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Canada recently concluded a study on the benefits of medical marijuana and found that it was not only effective in pain management but that it also helped overcome addiction to more harmful vices.

The study, published in the International Journal of Drug Policy, found that marijuana use can diminish a user’s dependency on tobacco, alcohol and, in some cases, painkillers.

The researchers said this study was the first comprehensive survey of patients enrolled in Canada’s MMJ program.

The study, which involved 271 participants, is also viewed as one of the first major studies to make the connection between cannabis and substance addiction.
