Even though the cold weather is coming, people still crave some chilly beverages. And we all know that bananas are delicious. As well as milkshakes. People love milkshakes. What’s better tasting when you’re stoned than a milkshake from McDonalds? While this shake is a bit more healthy than the stuff you can get from the drive through, it is medicated and will surely give you a nice buzz. Keep in mind that for this recipe, you will need THC infused milk, which is very easy to make and that recipe is also on the THCFinder website for your convenience!
What You’ll Need;
1 large scoop of ice cream
2 cups of THC milk
3 small bananas
The recipe is incredibly easy! First, take your apple and peel it. After it’s peeled, be sure to core it and remove all of the seeds. Once you’ve prepared the apple, peel the bananas as well. Take most of your ingredients (except for the milk and ice cream) and place them in a blender for 30 seconds or until the mixture is smoothly blended. Add in the ice cream and the milk. Mix everything together with a spoon until it is the right consistency. You can also blend again for another 30 seconds if you wish. Pour the mixture in to a glass and top with whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry. Drink slowly, as to not get a brain freeze, and enjoy the awesome feeling you get from this amazing drink!
Marijuana Use Not Associated With Deficits In Intelligence Quotient

Moderate cannabis consumption by young people is not positively associated with changes in intelligence quotient (IQ), according to data presented this week at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology annual congress in Berlin, Germany.
Investigators at the University College of London analyzed data from 2,612 subjects who had their IQ tested at the age of eight and again at age 15. They reported no relationship between cannabis use and lower IQ at age 15 when confounding factors such as subjects’ history of alcohol use and cigarette use were taken into account.
“In particular alcohol use was found to be strongly associated with IQ decline,” the authors wrote in a press release cited by The Washington Post. “No other factors were found to be predictive of IQ change.”
Quoted in the Independent Business Times, the study’s lead author said: “Our findings suggest cannabis may not have a detrimental effect on cognition, once we account for other related factors particularly cigarette and alcohol use. This may suggest that previous research findings showing poorer cognitive performance in cannabis users may have resulted from the lifestyle, behavior and personal history typically associated with cannabis use, rather than cannabis use itself.”
The investigators acknowledged that more chronic marijuana use, defined in the study as a subject’s admission of having consumed cannabis 50 times or more by age 15, was correlated with slightly poorer exam results at the age of 16 — even after controlling for other variables. However, investigators admitted: “It’s hard to know what causes what. Do kids do badly at school because they are smoking weed, or do they smoke weed because they’re doing badly?”
Commenting on the newly presented data, the meeting’s Chair, Guy Goodwin, from the University of Oxford, told BBC News: “This is a potentially important study because it suggests that the current focus on the alleged harms of cannabis may be obscuring the fact that its use is often correlated with that of other even more freely available drugs and possibly lifestyle factors.”
In a recent review published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the NIDA Director Nora Volkow alleged that cannabis use, particularly by adolescents, is associated with brain alterations and lower IQ. However, the IQ study cited by Ms. Volkow as the basis of her claim was later questioned in a separate analysis published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That paper suggested that socioeconomics, not subjects’ cannabis use, was responsible for differences in IQ and that the plant’s “true effect [on intelligence quotient] could be zero.”
A previous assessment of cannabis use and its potential impact on intelligence quotient in a cohort of young people tracked since birth reported, “[M]arijuana does not have a long-term negative impact on global intelligence.”

Mother Skeptical Over Cannabis Oil Trials
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
Cannabis oil has been used by many parents to help keep their children seizure free. Cassie Batten is one of those mothers, who uses cannabis oil on her son Cooper to keep his episodes at bay. At the young age of just 3, Cooper suffers from severe brain damage, cerebral abscesses, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy. That’s a long list of ailments for such a tiny human being. Without the oil, Cooper suffers through multiple seizures a day, stunting his growth both mentally and physically. With the oil, the little boy is able to function a bit more normally but because the oil is still illegal, the family faced a police raid in July. The police confiscated the life saving oil from the home, leaving Cooper without medicine.
Victorian Health Minister David Davis has said that ministers have agreed to work collaboratively to share knowledge regarding the appropriate use of therapeutic products derived from cannabis for medical purposes. This will allow a nationwide approach to exploring the benefits of medical cannabis, especially on those patients that suffer from terminal and debilitating illnesses, like Cooper. But his mother is extremely skeptical and she is worried that not only will she not be able to afford this pharmaceutical version of a natural medicine but that it will contain other chemicals that aren’t good for her son.
“What we use is a natural plant absorbed in olive or coconut oil and then strained,” Batten said. “In the pharmaceutical compound version, they add other chemicals to it.” The government funded substance will also cost far more, around $1000 a month, which for some is higher than the cost of rent on an apartment. Batten has applied for an exemption for her son, which would continue to allow him to use the oil that he has been using and not the jacked up version that she thinks will be put out by the government.
For these children, cannabis may be the only cure. It’s definitely unfair for these families to have to face police raids and other consequences for simply trying to help their children. When doctors suggest giving small kids dog tranquilizers in order to stop seizing, there’s a problem. If human medicine isn’t working, why make the natural cure so hard to get a hold of? Cooper, along with many other children, is proof that cannabis can help with the life threatening illnesses that afflict the human body. These children deserve a cure that works and they deserve to have their childhood like every other kid, spent running, jumping, and laughing. Not tranquilized out of reality with medicine made for canines.
