High End Glass Vs Cheap Glass

Category: Glass | Posted on Wed, January, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
Everyone knows that there's a large difference between the cheap glass and the expensive glass. There's many factors that go in to picking glass. All of these factors must be accounted for if you're going to end up with a quality piece of glass that won't only last long but will get you super stoned. Buying glass is a very important part of the stoner lifestyle, even if you prefer to smoke papers as compared to glass. All stoners have some sort of glass collection and most take serious pride in their fragile soldiers of smoking.
The origin of the piece is very important. Glass made in the States tends to be extremely well made, more so by local glass artists as compared to larger companies. Other reputable glass companies come from Canada and occasionally Germany, among other locations. Glass that comes from China, however, is something that you need to look out for. Chinese glass pieces are usually sold in gas stations and are extremely cheap, not to mention easily breakable. While these pieces are good for on-the-go smoking (because they're easily disposable) or to be used for party pieces, something that won't break your heart if it happens to break.
Glass weight is extremely telltale of a bad piece. Lighter pieces mean fragile glass which eventually means an easy break. These lightweights may look similar to their expensive counterparts but don't be fooled. Once you pick a piece up, you'll be able to tell if the glass will shatter with the next speck of dust that lands on it. The heavier the piece, the better. The piece that you pick should be heavy and thick, with minimal bubbles (some people are very offended by bubbles... I believe that as long as they're not in the path of flame, they're an acceptable imperfection). Opting for a lighter piece only guarantees the inevitable break.
The last piece that factors in to the purchase of your new smoking device is where you get it. Buying a piece that says ROOR at a gas station doesn't mean that it actually is a Roor. It means that someone stuck a sticker on a cheap piece of garbage that won't last the ride home. Glass should come from licensed dealers that take pride in the glass that they sell, not from the dusty shelf next to the register where you buy a Redbull before work. Always remember to take pride in your glass. Keep it clean and use it carefully!

NFL might legalize medical marijuana for players

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
nfl-mj-playersAs more US states move to consider marijuana legalization, the country’s most popular sports league is indicating it may one day allow its players to light up.
Speaking to ESPN, National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell suggested the sport’s ban on medical marijuana could be lifted in the future if the practice has already been legalized in a player’s state.
"I don't know what's going to develop as far as the next opportunity for medicine to evolve and to help either deal with pain or help deal with injuries, but we will continue to support the evolution of medicine," he said.
Although multiple teams play in states where medical marijuana is legal – not to mention that Colorado and Washington have legalized the drug outright – use of the substance remains prohibited under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement. The 10-year agreement isn’t set to expire until 2021, leaving no opportunity for players to renegotiate the policy in the short term.
As CBS News noted, Goodell’s words are the first time the NFL has commented on marijuana use since Colorado and Washington passed ballot initiatives legalizing the drug back in 2012.
"The NFL's policy is collectively bargained and will continue to apply in the same manner it has for decades," league spokesman Greg Aiello said at the time. "Marijuana remains prohibited under the NFL substance abuse program."
Still, the collective bargaining agreement’s content is not as black and white as the NFL may believe. According to Pro Football Talk, the CBA only bans the “illegal use” of marijuana, meaning a potential gray area exists concerning situations and states where legal/medical marijuana is permitted.
Complicating the situation is that many NFL players suffer from significant pain borne from concussions and brain trauma, the symptoms of which could be eased by marijuana.
“Medical marijuana is recommended by doctors for headaches, light-sensitivity, sleeplessness and loss of appetite—all of which happen to be symptoms associated with concussions,” the Nation noted on its blog in 2012. “The idea that the league would deny a player their legal pain relief of choice seems barbaric.”

Marijuana May Protect Liver From Alcohol Related Damage

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-protect-alcohol-damageA new study published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine has found that cannabidiol, a compound found in cannabis, can prevent damage to the liver caused by alcohol consumption.
According to the study’s abstract; “Acute alcohol drinking induces steatosis, and effective prevention of steatosis can protect liver from progressive damage caused by alcohol. Increased oxidative stress has been reported as one mechanism underlying alcohol-induced steatosis.”
It continues; “We evaluated whether cannabidiol, which has been reported to function as an antioxidant, can protect the liver from alcohol-generated oxidative stress-induced steatosis. Cannabidiol can prevent acute alcohol-induced liver steatosis in mice, possibly by preventing the increase in oxidative stress and the activation of the JNK MAPK pathway. Cannabidiol per se can increase autophagy both in CYP2E1-expressing HepG2 cells and in mouse liver. Importantly, cannabidiol can prevent the decrease in autophagy induced by alcohol.”
Researchers conclude that these results “show that cannabidiol protects mouse liver from acute alcohol-induced steatosis through multiple mechanisms including attenuation of alcohol-mediated oxidative stress, prevention of JNK MAPK activation, and increasing autophagy.”
