Allergic To THC?
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
Have you ever had a friend that turns down the bowl when it's their turn in the rotation? Every time someone denies the ganja, the entire group needs a viable reason as to why. Sometimes, the person has smoked too much or maybe they're just not in the mood. There is always that one chance though that you'll get the friend that says "No thanks, I'm allergic."
Whoa... What? Allergic to pot? While a lot of stoners will laugh at their friend, call them a wimp, and try to pressure them to take a hit, stop and think. Marijuana is a weed and the human body can develop allergies to every single thing that exists in the world. There are other people who are allergic to apples. It's not a joke. Our bodies are mysterious and sometimes, our cells just aren't feeling the substances we eat, touch, or smell. Since marijuana is a plant that produces pollen, it is completely logical that there is a percent of the population that will develop a cannabis allergy. The pollen from the plant can cause red eyes, itchy nose, and sinus problems as well as skin rashes in certain cases.
While touching the plant cause cause reactions in the body, so can smoking it. To those who develop a cannabis allergy, the inhalation of the plant can cause severe asthma, as well as hives. Not only is the plant itself always the cause of this issue but buds that haven't been cured properly can develop types of mold that some people are allergic to as well. So the person may not be allergic to the marijuana itself but the other allergens that have infected the bud. The type of mold, named aspergillus, causes allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
It gets even worse when it comes to the medibles aspect of marijuana. Eating weed is a different way to utilize the cannabis plant but those who may be allergic, beware. Ingesting marijuana while knowing that an allergy exists is not a good idea. The effects of ingested marijuana of an allergy afflicted person are the same as if someone with a peanut allergy indulging in a peanut butter sandwich. The treatment of a marijuana food allergy is treated how any other food allergy is treated; with an Epi-Pen.
So before poking fun at a friend that claims to be allergic to ganja, remember that it is possible. There are people in the world that allergic to water. The human body is made of water so these poor people are technically allergic to themselves. Since cannabis is a plant and produces pollen, it's totally possible for people to develop allergies to it.
Michigan Legislators Propose Pharmacy Marijuana Sales

LANSING (AP) - Five years after Michigan voters legalized marijuana use for medical purposes, lawmakers say it’s time the drug is brought into the fold of the health care industry so patients can buy it at their corner pharmacy.
A bill approved last week by a Senate committee would pave the way for the production and sale of “pharmaceutical-grade” cannabis. The measure essentially would create a second medical pot system in the state, one that proponents say would not interfere with the existing law under which patients can grow their own pot or obtain it from caregivers.
“Marijuana, if it’s to be medical marijuana, should be held to the standard of medical safety, dosage predictability,” said Sen. Roger Kahn, a Saginaw Township Republican and cardiologist. “Our medical marijuana (law) does neither of those. Yet it uses the word the word `medical’ predominantly or prominently in its claims.”
Kahh is sponsoring legislation, now pending on the Senate floor, to move marijuana from a Schedule 1 drug in the same category as heroin and other drugs with no accepted medical use to a Schedule 2 drug like cocaine and morphine that are addictive but also used for medicinal purposes. The reclassification could not occur without federal approval.
Such a reclassification would lay the groundwork for pharmacies to dispense marijuana. The legislation would allow doctors to recommend that patients be issued “enhanced” pharmaceutical-grade cannabis cards differing from those now carried by 129,000 residents.
To get a card, the patient could not have been convicted of a drug offense, would have to surrender his or her ID card issued under the existing law and could not be under 18 years old. Suppliers and participating pharmacies would undergo annual inspections.

Cannabis Milk Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, November, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Hey, it's an easy way to get stoned while eating cereal, Mac & Cheese, or maybe you're just keeping your bones strong. Whatever the case may be, milk can be better by adding a little bit of bud to it. It's suggested that you use chocolate syrup if you drink it straight though. It'll mask the cannabis taste if you're just drinking it straight.
What You'll Need;
1 cup of milk
1/8 chopped cannabis
This is an extremely easy recipe for people to make. Be sure that you have your handy coffee grinder ready because you need to get the cannabis ground as finely as possible. Put the milk in a pan and heat it up until it is simmering. When it begins to bubble slightly, lower the heat and slowly stir in the cannabis. Allow this mixture to simmer on the stove for about an hour Remember to stir it and be careful because milk can overflow a pot if there's too much heat.
After an hour has passed, strain the milk through cheese cloth after allowing it to cool. Make sure it's strained well. No one likes cannabis sediment in their milk, right? After you strain it, put it in an airtight container in the fridge. Remember the date that your milk expires too. Wasting cannabis milk is no good!
