More Anti-Cancer Properties Of Marijuana Revealed
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
Studies have shown that marijuana not only helps fight the symptoms of treating cancer but also the disease itself. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, often gets the credit for battling cancer cells, but a new study shows that THC isn’t working alone. The study conducted at St. George’s University of London, led by Dr. Wai Liu, examined six non-hallucinogenic chemicals found in marijuana, called cannabinoids. The study found that each of these chemicals showed anti-cancer properties as effective as THC. Furthermore, when these chemicals are used in combination, they have an even greater impact on cancer cells.
The anti-cancer properties of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary hallucinogenic component of cannabis, has been recognised for many years, but research into similar cannabis-derived compounds, known as cannabinoids, has been limited.
Of six cannabinoids studied, each demonstrated anti-cancer properties as effective as those seen in THC. Importantly, they had an increased effect on cancer cells when combined with each other.
Dr Liu said: “This study is a critical step in unpicking the mysteries of cannabis as a source of medicine. The cannabinoids examined have minimal, if any, hallucinogenic side effects, and their properties as anti-cancer agents are promising. These agents are able to interfere with the development of cancerous cells, stopping them in their tracks and preventing them from growing. In some cases, by using specific dosage patterns, they can destroy cancer cells on their own.”

Instagram Series; Blunt Rollers

Recently, I wrote a piece regarding the appeal of the blunt. All of the people that read it seemed to really enjoy it so here is a list I've compiled with the help of my Instagram followers of the best blunt rollers on Instagram. Whether they're rolling the straightest, most perfect blunts or rolling in the shape of... well... whatever they feel like! These five rollers are incredibly talented and smoking a blunt with any of them would be an honor!
His page was mentioned more than once when I asked my followers who they thought had the best roll. Seriously, he's on top of the roll game. With perfect pearls every time, @sirgoofy deserves the utmost respect for the blunts that he puts up.
Geometric shapes? Flowers? Arrows? Animals? If it's an object, @powerpuff_kid can roll a blunt to look at it! Watching the videos on this page will make your jaw drop. The talent it takes to roll these masterpieces is incredible. Well done!
It makes me extremely happy to have a lady on this countdown! Her feed is total fire and the blunts she rolls are straighter than rulers. They're rolled so well that they can stand straight up on their ends without loosing a bit a bud and without falling over. Can't argue with a girl who knows how to roll.
A newer feed to the Instagram scene (at least for me), he's got his rolling skills pretty perfected. Whether it's a cross blunt or a pearl, @boppin954 is sure to impress you with his rolling skills. He even makes blunts that look like pipes!
Blunts with joint papers rolled on the end? Yes please! Combining joints and blunts is like the ultimate fruit salad! Not only are these beauties nice to look at but they're big too! There's plenty of other awesome rolls on this Instagram feed!
Rolling a blunt is skill that few will learn to master in their smoking lifetime. Most people are just content with glass. I have to admit that a good blunt is totally required every once in a great while, when people are with a large group of friends or it's just a solo sesh but you feel like getting super high. Blunt rolling is an art and these five have it mastered.
