A new study published in this month’s issue of the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis may treat schizophrenia.
 
“Clinical and neurobiological findings suggest that the cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system may be implicated in the pathophysiology and treatment of schizophrenia”, begins the study’s abstract. “We described that the spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) strain presents a schizophrenia behavioral phenotype that is specifically attenuated by antipsychotic drugs, and potentiated by proschizophrenia manipulations. Based on these findings, we have suggested this strain as an animal model of schizophrenia.
 
“The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of cannabinoid drugs on the deficit of prepulse inhibition (PPI) of startle, the main paradigm used to study sensorimotor gating impairment related to schizophrenia, presented by the SHR strain. ”
 
For the study, researchers used synthetic cannabinoids, as well as plant-derived cannabidiol.
 
They conclude that; “Our results reinforce the role of the endocannabinoid system in the sensorimotor gating impairment related to schizophrenia, and point to cannabinoid drugs as potential therapeutic strategies“.

Woven Blunts

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, February, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
woven-bluntsRolling a blunt is a skill that takes time and practice to learn. These days, it seems that stoners have taken rolling to a whole different level. Besides the traditional cross joint, pretty much any shape can be rolled, including animals, household tools, and geometric shapes. One roll in particular seems to be quite popular among potheads lately is the woven blunt, an intricate, well put together roll that takes a lot of patience and skill to put together. I was able to get a little bit of background on these amazing creations, thanks to a friend (@tonygreenhand on Instagram, who along with @QJRFM have been spreading the word of the woven blunts).
 
For making these weaves, @tonygreenhand recommends using Notorious BIG wraps, Kingpin or Juicy Jay, as their flavors can all really compliment each other. Plus, you need the two different colors to create the desired pattern. He also suggested using a thin pressed tobacco sheet by a company called Golden Wraps. Since the blunt wraps are so thick, they smoke heavy and the addition of the tobacco sheet makes them a little more smooth when smoked. Making these blunts can be fun when combining the different flavors, as there are so many kinds of flavors out there.
 
The appeal of these blunts is that they smoke at a more even rate and because they are thicker, they burn slower. This provides a lasting blunt for you and your friends (or perhaps just you). Not only that but if you show up at a friends house with a beautifully crafted weave, your friends are going to be shocked. The blunts are time consuming to create but once you get the hang of cutting up the strips and piecing them together, you can manage to make one of these beauties in about 15 minutes. Depending on how large or small the strips are, you can create almost any design, including letters, numbers, and eight-bit style pictures. For more information about the woven blunts, you can check out the Instagrams that are mentioned above. Good luck with your blunt weaving!

Five Places To Hot Box

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 27th 2014 by THCFinder

Finding an enclosed space to smoke in can be really funny and if you're with good friends, can provide an awesome bonding experience. Or maybe there just isn't a spot that you can smoke safely and somewhere enclosed is your only option if you wanna get high. Either way, hotboxing is a popular stoner activity and there are always favorite places for stoners. Here are five of the best places to hot box, depending on where you live and what you like to do!
 
- A tent is the perfect place to hot box. Camping under the sky is a great experience and can be enjoyed alone or with friends. Just be sure that you prepare for any sudden weather changes and be sure to save enough weed for an awesome, nature filled wake and bake!
 
- Living in a snowy region can benefit stoners in the sense that you can totally build an igloo and hot box it. These structures take a lot of work to build but when finished, provide a dope smoke spot. Make a chimney (or don't) and enjoy the fact that you created a sweet little hut to smoke in.
 
- If you know of a quiet spot where cops don't frequent, hot boxing a car can be awesome. No matter where you park, you can always seem to find something cool going on (unless you're weird and park in front of walls or buildings and such). From people watching to beautiful scenes, the car is a great place to get baked.
 
- Feeling nostalgic? Build a pillow fort... And the proceed to smoke in it. The perfect balance of childhood and adult life, these forts make cool little spots to hang out in. Listen to music or maybe just build the fort around the TV. But whatever you do, be sure to smoke a ton of bud in it!
 
- Perhaps if you've just got crappy neighbors, the bathroom makes a good spot to hotbox. It's a small, closed off room that can provide you with a sneaky smoking spot. Not the best spot to smoke but hey, you gotta get high somewhere.
