The Effects Of Bad BHO
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
By now, the majority of the stoner community is familiar with dabbing, the process of inhaling concentrated THC material that can be used as an incredibly powerful and potent medicine. Unfortunately, the process of making this substance can be extremely dangerous for those attempting it that aren't professionals. The end result can also cause problems for those that use the dabs, as the purging process can sometimes be overlooked, leaving large amounts of butane left in the product.
First of all, the process of making BHO can be extremely dangerous. The conditions need to be perfect, not in a kitchen, garage, or storage closet in your apartment building. All of the equipment used must be high grade. Skimping on things like tubes can result in breaking glass and explosions, leading to serious injury. If you don't know what you're doing, don't attempt to make BHO. Explosions like this are what is causing such a negative light to be shed on dabs, which are being called the "crack of marijuana".
If BHO is not properly purged of the leftover butane, the product can cause extreme headaches. Most people seem to think that this is the worst side effect but others do argue that the inhalation of the excess butane gas is severely harmful to the lungs and throat, causing terrible side effects. There was one report of a young girl that was dabbing when her throat suddenly swelled up, causing her to have trouble breathing. Fortunately, she was rushed to the hospital in time and was treated for chemical epiglottitis , a condition that effects the flap of skin between the esophagus and trachea. This skin flap becomes inflamed when an irritant is introduced, such as certain chemicals or high levels of heat. However, it is not thought that butane was the cause of this but some other irritant in the product of perhaps the inhalation of the heated air.
Products like this need to be made well, especially if it's patients that are using the substance for medical reasons. Always be sure to make BHO correctly, in well ventilated areas, and with the proper equipment. If you're going off of a YouTube video, you should probably not try to accomplish this process. Only those that are experienced should be making BHO, just to be on the safe side.
Banks To Accept Marijuana Money
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
Good news for all dispensary owners! Banks are beginning to relax their standing on accepting money that was used in the marijuana industry. The government recently release a set of rules for the banks to follow regarding this industry and they are going to allow the financial institutions with banking services, just like any other business. With such large amounts of cash being handled, marijuana establishments being barred from banks creates a huge public safety problem, not to mention an inconvenience for customers and patients.
According to the rules that have been set forth, the banks must be labeled as "suspicious" and will be investigated after the bank files a report (Suspicious Activity Reports is what they'll be called). Transactions that are believed to be legal will be reported as "marijuana limited" transactions. For other transactions that the banks believe the be illegal, they will be labeled as "marijuana priority" and will be further investigated by the bank's cannabis industry regulators.
While the new rules aren't going to solve everything, at least the government is taking steps in the right direction. Dispensary owners will be able to store their money in a safe place, as compared to stuffing it in their mattresses to keep it guarded or having to leave it in the safe at the store. Cannabis may still be illegal under federal law but forbidding these large amounts of money from entering bank accounts is only going to promote black market activity and other money related crimes.
Cannabis And Bodybuilding
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, February, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
Lifting weights is popular these days, even among stoners. Especially with winter on it's way out, getting in to shape for the summer season is very important to some people. But those that are lifting weights sometimes have the worry that cannabis will decrease their desire to work out and only promote their cravings for munchies snacks that won't help to gain any muscle mass. The key for people that love lifting their minds as well as weights is moderation and to avoid actually smoking their cannabis and to enjoy it in a form like edibles, oils, and THC pills.
In an article published on www.illpumpyouup.com, the subject of cannabis ingestion and testosterone was brought up. In a study published in 1972, there arose concern that marijuana was connected to gynecomastia, or "male breasts". In studies conducted on animals, an inhibiting effect took place on both testosterone as well as luteninzing hormone (LH) production. But the human body reacts far differently, with more studies showing that there is no decreased testosterone levels. In 1989, another study was conducted on 17 male volunteers that were given high and low doses of THC. The results showed that there was no hormonal changes at all. Basically, there is no effect on testosterone levels if one chooses to ingest THC.
As always, juicing cannabis leaves also provides an amazing health benefit for the body, not to mention adding hemp seeds in to your diet. The antioxidants and amino acids contained in the seeds and leaves help to boost bodily function, immune system, and digestive health. For those bodybuilders that juice, adding a couple cannabis leaves to your recipes won't even get you stoned nor will it appear on a drug test. Just add about an ounce of juiced cannabis leaves to your smoothies or maybe half a cup of hemp seeds. You won't even be able to taste either one and your body will thank you.
Marijuana can be a great way for bodybuilders to relax after a tough workout. These days, even healthy foods can be turned in to amazingly uplifting dishes that will chill your body out. For bodybuilders especially, eating cannabis would be a benefit because of the body effects it provides. Simply look up healthy recipes online that can include marijuana and get to cooking! There are recipes online that are even vegan and gluten free for those that really go all out for a healthy life style.
Topping Vs Tying Down
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, February, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
There are many methods to growing cannabis and one that is largely debated upon is whether to top the plants or to tie them down. The two methods are both used to get the same end result, a stronger, healthier plant that will yield a greater amount of buds at the end of the grow season. Some growers even combine methods and both top and tie the plants. This gives them a shorter, bushier appearance, with many tops, resulting in a large amount of product.
Topping is a very easy process. The grower simply waits until the plant is about three or four nodes tall and then begin to pluck the new growths from the tips. You'll be able to see the part that you're supposed to remove, nestled in between the leaves. Remove this piece and in it's place, two tops will start to grow. Some growers only prefer this method, especially if hight is an important factor to them. Primarily used singularly by outdoor growers, since the plants can get so large this way.
When the grower decides to tie the plants down, a cotton string is wrapped around the tops, dragging them downwards and promoting an outward growth, rather than upwards. Since this method doesn't include physically damaging the plant, some growers think that tying down the plants is far less stressful. But then again, as said above, there are plenty of growers that use both to maximize their yield. Tying plants down is perfect for micro grows because of the horizontal growth and is even reversible if you decide against it. Simply remove the strings. Be sure that if you choose this method, you do no tie the strings too tight. The plant will grow around the string, eventually cutting through itself and you can lose entire branches to this mistake.
Every grower has a different method of getting their plants to the correct place. Since every grower is different, every strain has the potential to be different. The choice in how the plants are grown is very important and greatly effects the outcome of the buds. Large amounts of stress and poor growing conditions will never give a good end result so be sure that you care for your plants in the best way that you see fit.

Smoking a lot can lead to complications in a stoners life. While weed is great, as with everything, too much is not good. But while a recreational stoner usually has no problem taking a break, those who use the plant for medical reasons face complications. This includes the return of symptoms like chronic pain, nausea, and anxiety. Add this to the sometimes experienced loss of appetite and trouble sleeping when one stops using cannabis and you can have a seriously cranky human on your hands.
When you overload the cannabis receptors in your brain, it takes more THC to activate them. This means that you need to smoke more in order to get stoned. This can present an issue, especially for those who don't have a lot of money to be spending on bud. Patients especially need to get their usual dose of THC or they can't function normally throughout their daily tasks. And if more THC is needed to get the desired effect, then people are going to have to smoke more, meaning that they're going to spend more money that they may not really have.
If you're experiencing issues with the effect of THC, a tolerance break might be required. From what I've read, you're not supposed to intake any THC in this period but for some, the not sleeping and the problems with food are too much to bear. But instead of smoking the copious amount that you normally do, you should only be taking one or two hits and THAT'S IT! If you continue to smoke, you're not helping yourself. But cutting down this considerable amount should help to get you to a spot where smoking a bong load will get you blasted.
Feeling up to a challenge? Stop smoking for a week and then report back to me with your findings at firstname.lastname@example.org or Contact@thcfinder.com . Tolerance breaks are really tough for some stoners so if you find it too frustrating, you don't have to test the theory.
Study Concludes Marijuana Increases Appetite By Enhancing Sense Of Smell
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, February, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
A new study published this week in the journal Nature Neuroscience has revealed why cannabis can act as an appetite stimulant.
A group of European scientists examined the standard smelling and eating patterns of mice, and compared them to patterns exhibited by mice given THC.
Both groups of mice were offered almond and banana oils; while the mice in the control group sniffed the oils and eventually lost interest, the group of mice who were administered THC just kept sniffing. When offered food, the mice who were given THC also ate substantially more than the control group.
Upon examining another group of mice that had been fasted 24 hours, the researchers found results similar to those seen in the mice given THC.
The scientists genetically engineered a group of mice without CB1 receptors in their olfactory bulb (the part of the brain responsible for sense of smell), and found that administering THC no longer had the same effect; the mice reacted to smells the same as the control group, and no longer exhibited an increased appetite.
Researchers determined that cannabinoid receptors located in the olfactory bulb were triggered by the THC, which acts as an imitation of the endocannabinoids naturally produced when experiencing hunger – thus, enhancing the sense of smell and increasing the appetite of the mice.
