If Your Pet Eats Weed...

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
if-your-pet-eats-weedAnimals as well as humans have THC receptors in their brains. However, the plant effects them far differently as compared to humans and it's not a good idea to give your furry best friend some of the pot brownie you're mowing down on. But anyone who owns animals knows that pets can usually get in to places that they're not allowed and the kitchen is one of those places. Pets are far smarter when there's food involved and if you happen to either leave your medicated treats out or if your pet managed to break in, it's important to know what to do if they've ingested some cannabis.
 
If you think that your pet has gotten in to your stash, you should be aware of the symptoms that are associated with cannabis over-consumption. These symptoms include but aren't limited to things such as low heart rate, lack of activity, anxiety, disorientation, tremors, vomiting, and diarrhea. In more severe cases, the pet can have seizures and potentially die if there's been too much cannabis ingested. Most of these symptoms are the worst case scenario and typically, the pet will experience lethargy or possibly go the other way with hyperactivity and anxiety.
 
When the terrifying experience happens, where you find that your cat or dog has managed to devour a plate of cookies, brownies, or vat of butter, there are two options. Depending on the symptoms, you can induce vomiting and try to get your pet to excrete whatever it's gotten in to. However, this can be extremely expensive and most stoners don't have the money to afford it. The second option, and what happens more often than not, is to let the bud dissipate in your pet's system. Be sure that they're comfortable and have lots of water. Keep an eye on them and be sure not to leave them alone until you're sure that they're feeling better. In the future, be sure to hide your weed from your pet so this situation doesn't happen again.
 
Pets can ingest cannabis to help with the same problems that humans have, including arthritis and pain in the heart, stomach, spine, and eyes. But they're much smaller than we are and that needs to be taken in to account when giving your pet bud. It's recommended that you only use cannabis on your pet if recommended by a vet and don't EVER blow smoke in your animal's face, as the smell to them is much stronger and can be overpowering and painful for their sensitive noses and ears. Love your pets, don't let them get a hold of your weed!

Does Marijuana Make Food Taste And Smell Better?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-making-food-taste-and-smell-betterIf I am about to eat some fantastic food, I almost always consume marijuana first. It’s something I have always done, and so do most of my friends and family. I have always felt that I find the food more enjoyable when I consume marijuana first. It’s no secret that marijuana can induce ‘the munchies’ but there is now scientific research that explains why. Per Vice:
 
Led by Giovanni Marsicano of the University of Bordeaux, a team of European neuroscientists proved that THC—the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana—fits into special receptors in the brain’s olfactory bulb, allowing users to smell and taste food far more acutely while high. Since these scientists study neurological diseases, rather than write a column on the intersection of cannabis and cuisine, their report tends to focus on practical medical applications of this exciting new discovery, rather than its role in giving rise to what the New York Times has dubbed haute stoner cuisine.
 
“Many feeding disorders [like anorexia] are accompanied by altered perception in general,” Marsicano noted. “Smell is particularly linked to food intake and is particularly altered in different diseases…so smell and its regulation by the endocannabinoid system could represent a future target for therapies against these and other diseases.”
 
Marijuana never ceases to amaze me. If you know someone that wants to enjoy food more, recommend marijuana to them. Also, if you know someone that suffers from an eating disorder, or needs to eat more to help a health condition, also recommend marijuana.

Blackberry Kush is a mostly Indica Kush with a strong blackberry smell and pink and red hairs. It truly lives up to its name, with a remarkably strong blackberry / piney / hashy smell. As a potent Indica, Blackberry Kush is couchlock weed, and so it is not recommended for high-activity moments.

Washington Banning Pot In Cars?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
wa-banning-smoking-in-cars
In the cannabis legal state of Washington, you would think that with the insane amount of tax revenue pouring in, there would be no one complaining about the legality of a plant. But of course, there's always going to be a problem, especially with such a new industry. Unfortunately for those in Washington, there may be a serious problem with obtaining any kind of weed in the future, whether it be recreational or medical. Thanks to the people who deem cannabis comparable to alcohol, even though the two substances aren't even in the same league.
 
We all know that cannabis and alcohol have a lot in common. Both have been prohibited, fought against, and gradually accepted (although weed in still working on that one). But most smart people are beginning to realize that comparing the two isn't as easy as previously thought. While newbie stoners shouldn't be toking and driving, absolutely no one should be drinking and driving. The Washington Traffic Safety Commission wants to end cannabis carrying in cars if the container is open, making things a bit tougher for patients who travel to work, school, or other places that required having cannabis in the car. The new rule would ban the driver as well as passengers from having open cannabis containers in the car.
 
The reason behind this change? Since the legalization measure passed, more and more drivers have tested positive for marijuana use. In 2012, 18.6% of "suspected" impaired drivers tested positive for THC, says the Washington State Toxicology Lab. In 2013, that number increased to 25% of tested blood samples, which was the first year that I-502 was put in to effect. Additionally, there has been an increase in people testing positive for 1 metabolite of THC, which shows the use over the last few days. But while these numbers are increasing, Darrin Grondel, the director of the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, says that there aren't any traffic accident or fatality increases this far, showing that while people may be smoking more, stoners aren't exactly veering off in to ditches on the regular.
 
Washington state bases much of the marijuana laws off of the pre-existing alcohol ones, according to Alison Holocomb, the lawyer who drafter the I-502. While it is important to keep people safe while in this changing time, it's also important to know that cannabis and alcohol are two completely different substances. Not to mention the fact that since I-502 passed, more individual blood samples have been tested... So wouldn't that mean that the number would increase because the amount of samples increased?

Marijuana Lowers Risk Of Domestic Violence

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-use-and-domestic-violenceSome people will probably try to tell you that you're going to hit your girlfriend is you smoke weed. Yeah I know it's crazy. Which is why it makes sense to debunk that nonsense now. If you look at the numbers, as people always seem to do, you'll notice that the use of alcohol greatly increases the risk of domestic violence in today's house hold. It increases both the risk of being a perpetrator or the victim, up to and including intimate partner violence. And keep in mind that this substance is legal and served in almost every corner store in America.
 
Most turn a blind eye to the alcohol link to violence in the home, blaming it instead on other factors like television. Or marijuana, as is the case sometimes. But according to a study that was just published in the journal Psychology and Addictive Behaviors, couples who continuously use cannabis in their relationship are much less likely to engage in partner violence, putting them at a considerably lower risk of domestic violence.
 
The study, done at Yale University, Rutgers, and the University of Buffalo, took 600 couples and assessed them, determining whether the husbands' and wives' cannabis use was contributing to domestic violence at any time within the first nine years of marriage. The findings were obvious (at least to some), saying "In fully adjusted models, we found that more frequent marijuana use by husbands and wives predicted less frequent domestic violence perpetration by husbands. Husbands' marijuana use also predicted less frequent IPV (intimate partner violence) perpetration by wives. Moderation analyses demonstrated that couples in which both spouses used marijuana frequently reported the least frequent IPV perpetration". In stoner terms? If you and your partner are smoking weed, chances are that you're less likely to be involved in a violent relationship.
 
Other studies have been released regarding the topic of cannabis and domestic violence. A previous study of the subject was published in the journal Addictive Behaviors which studied alcohol  and cannabis. The study concluded that alcohol increases the chances of violence in a couple, while cannabis use did not. The study assessed whether cannabis or alcohol use by college age men was associated with the risk of physical, sexual, or psychological violence over a period of 90 days. This study also took in to effect the number of drinks that a person had, concluding that on days with more heavy alcohol use, the odds of physical and sexual aggression increased drastically. Marijuana use, the report stated, did not find that marijuana increased the chance of violence in the relationship.
 
People, as said in the above paragraphs, have long since assumed that cannabis contributed somehow to domestic violence. These studies successfully eliminate that stereotype. Years ago, something like this would have never appeared in print, says Dr. Mitch Earleywine, a professor at the State University of New York at Albany. "I commend these authors for writing up these results. There was a time when investigators with these data might not have bothered to write it up at all for fear that it would never appear in print, because it contradicts the federal anti marijuana sentiment. Times have really changed."
