Five Health Issues That Marijuana Helps
The most talked about disease that cannabis helps with is definitely cancer. However, the plant treats multiple afflictions that people suffer from. Not only that but cannabis is far healthier for people as compared to the drugs made for treatment. With cannabis being a natural way to benefit lives. it makes sense that we should be using it to treat these ten awful health problems.
This is the big one. Cancer has effected more people that is necessary. The treatment for it is painful and some sufferers don't even survive that. If marijuana can help cancer patients (whether it be a complete cure or at least assistance to the dreaded chemotherapy), it should definitely be accessible for them.
Since marijuana allows muscles to relax and the user to think more slowly, those who have Tourette's greatly benefit from marijuana. Their speech improves greatly after smoking and you can literally see their bodies unwind. Cannabis has a much longer lasting effect of the symptoms of Tourette's as well, as compared to the placebo in a study done at Hanover Medical College in Germany.
This is being proven again and again in younger patients who have severe seizures. If the cannabis ingested is high in CBD, rather than THC, it seems to completely eradicate the symptoms from daily life. While it's not perfect yet, it seems that CBD will be able to help hundreds if not thousands of seizure sufferers.
4. ADD & ADHD
Especially in young children, ADD and ADHD are a big problem. Some argue that this disease is just kids being kids but whatever the case, medicines that are used to treat this affliction should not be given to kids. Adderall, Concerta, and Ritalin are all extremely powerful drugs that have scary effects on even the adults that take them, sometimes causing death. These drugs shouldn't be given to adults, forget giving it to kids. Marijuana has a calming effect on those that suffer from ADD and ADHD, without the loss of appetite and sped up heartbeat from the prescription pills.
Why Vaporizing Medical Cannabis Is Getting Popular

Many people using medical cannabis, for obvious reasons, are very worried about their health. For some people, smoking is just out of the question. Even though cannabis isn’t associated with the cancer risk that smoking tobacco is associated with, smoking still does have effects on the lungs that may be undesirable for some people. Particularly if the patient is an avid runner or engages in some other vigorous fitness routine, smoking may diminish their performance and make them feel like medical cannabis might not be accessible.
The first option here is usually to get marijuana that is baked into food. This completely eliminates the need to draw anything into your lungs. The other option is to try vaporizing. There are good reasons why many people are turning to vaporizers as a way to use medical cannabis.
In order to smoke anything, you have to combust it. According to some information, a burning joint can reach over 2000°F. There is also research to show that most of the smoke that is produced when you combust marijuana does not actually contain the cannabinoids you want, but contains a great many more other components.
For some people, this makes smoking far less than ideal. Vaporization has qualities that make it more attractive.
Some information holds that vaporizing marijuana produces a vapor that is more than 95% free of smoke. The vaporization takes place at a much lower temperature than combustion. At approximately 340°F, the cannabinoids in cannabis start to vaporize.
With cannabinoids in excess of 90%, vapor can be very effective at delivering the desired effect from medical cannabis. For many people, vaporization is simply a more modern, more effective and more desirable way to use medical cannabis.
The drawbacks to vaporizing principally have to do with cost. Vaporizers cost a great deal more than a simple bowl or bong and, because of that, some patients may not be able to afford the equipment used to vaporize.
Additionally, it is very difficult to tell based on sales information whether a vaporizer is actually good. The best way to make certain that any vaporizer you’re considering purchasing is worth the money is to talk to people at a dispensary. In some cases, they may even be able to recommend some brands that they know work very well. Because of the cost involved, you don’t want to waste your money on a substandard vaporizer that comes at a low price precisely because it doesn’t measure up to standards.
Vaporizing medical cannabis is one of the most popular ways to use it. For some people, it’s much better than smoking because of the reduced smell, because it’s easier on the lungs and, according to some people, because the effects that they experience are more intense.

Medicated Blueberry Biscuits
Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, November, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
Want to keep your cabinets stocker with medicated treats for those days before work where you don't have time to smoke? This blueberry muffin recipe would go great with the vanilla coffee recipe that was recently posted on the site. Put these two together in the morning and you'll be sure to have a wonderfully elevated day.
What You'll Need;
2 - 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 - 1 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cannabutter
3 tablespoons of milk/water mix
The first step is to preheat the oven to 345 degrees. After you've done that, add the flour and sugar in to a bowl and mix them together well. Then, add your cannabis butter to the mix. Don't melt the butter prior to adding it. If the butter is rock hard, you can let it sit to soften up a bit but you have to keep it in a solid form. Now, beat the butter in to the flour and sugar mix until most of the chunks have disappeared. Then add your blueberries!
Next, add the milk. Mix the milk in well until the substance has turned in to a dough. Make sure that it's not too soupy. You can add more flour if necessary or more milk if it's too thick. But it should be more like dough, not like muffin mix. Lay out some flour on a flat surface and begin to knead the dough.
When the dough has been thoroughly kneaded, get a cookie sheet and grease it well. You don't want the dough to stick to the pan when you're trying to eat it. Take pieces off of the dough and mold them in to small round shapes, 1/2" thick and 2" wide. You must remember to watch them carefully while they cook, as they might end up getting too big. Cook them for 10-20 minutes but keep a close eye on them.
The biscuit muffins shouldn't be brown on the top. To see if they've finished cooking, lift one up with a knife and inspect the bottom. If the dough has a golden color, then they're done.
In order to make the awesome glaze for these treats, keep reading! If you prefer them just the way they are, get to cooking! To make the glaze, take your powdered sugar, as well as the milk/water mix that you have prepared. Add them together and stir well. The end result should be a soupy kind of substance. Using a cooking brush, cover the biscuits with glaze once they have cooled off from the oven. Enjoy!
