Does Holding In A Hit Of Marijuana Longer Make You Higher?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
holding-in-bong-ripsI think we all have that friend that tries to hold in his/her hit of marijuana as long as they possibly can in an attempt to get higher. They swear that if you hold in your hit of marijuana longer, it will make you higher. I have always gone back and forth in regards to which side of the equation I fell into – whether or not I believed holding in my hit of marijuana longer would get me higher. I have many memories of smoking marijuana, hanging out with friends growing up, and watching my friends try to hold in their hit as long as they could. I even witnessed a couple of friends pass out because they held in their hit so long. Luckily, none of them were ever hurt.
 
We always debated whether or not holding in a hit of marijuana longer would make you higher growing up, and we didn’t have the internet to research things. Everyone’s arguments were usually based upon ‘a guy they heard it from’ which is not exactly a good source. These days we have the internet to shed more light on the subject. I found some
 
According to Steve Liebke’s 2001 ‘A Cannabis User’s Harm Reduction Handbook,’ “Take small, shallow tokes or pulls. About 95% of THC in cannabis smoke is absorbed in the first few seconds so breath holding is quite pointless. All it really achieves is a far greater amount of tar being deposited in the lungs.”
 
The excerpt from Steve Liebke’s book didn’t have citation itself, so take that information for what you will. It seems much more reliable of a source than ‘some guy I heard it from’ though. What do readers think? Do you hold in your hit of marijuana longer because you think it makes you higher? Or do you think that it doesn’t matter? I invite others to post links in the comments to other research if they have something good to share! I would like to see a study done about the difference between smoking dabs versus smoking flower, and how holding it in is different (if at all). Because I know when I hold in dab hits, that shiz has some bite!

Seattle cops to hand out Doritos instead of tickets at annual marijuana festival

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, August, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
doritos-to-be-passed-outSEATTLE — A few things will be different at this year's Hempfest, the 22-year-old summer "protestival" on Seattle's waterfront where tens of thousands of revelers gather to use dope openly, listen to music and gaze at the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
 
The haze of pot smoke might smell a little more like victory, after Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize marijuana use by adults over 21. Having won at the state level, speakers will concentrate on the reform of federal marijuana laws.
 
Oh, and the Seattle police — who have long turned a lenient eye on Hempfest tokers — don't plan to be writing tickets or making arrests. They'll be busy handing out Doritos.
 
"I think it's going to be a lot of fun," said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb, department spokesman and junk-food-dispenser-in-chief. "It's meant to be ironic. The idea of police passing out Doritos at a festival that celebrates pot, we're sure, is going to generate some buzz."
 
The idea isn't just to satisfy some munchies. The department has affixed labels to 1,000 bags of Doritos urging people to check out a question-and-answer post on its website, titled "Marijwhatnow? A Guide to Legal Marijuana Use In Seattle." It explains some of the nuances of Washington's law: that adults can possess up to an ounce but can't sell it or give it away, that driving under the influence of pot is illegal, and that — festivals aside — public use is illegal.

Dr. Manny: Medical marijuana for children should be approved by Governor Christie

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, August, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
gov-christie-mmjThere is overwhelming evidence to suggest that medical marijuana has helped thousands of patients that suffer from chronic medical ailments, whether you’re talking about management of chronic pain, nausea or GI problems or enhancement of appetite.
 
Additionally, there seems to be data suggesting that in certain neurological diseases, some of the chemical properties of marijuana might also be beneficial.  Such is the case with Vivian Wilson, 2, whose father is urging New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to pass a law making it easier for children to obtain medical marijuana.
 
Wilson suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a severe, difficult-to-control epileptic condition. Her father, Brian, has said that ingestible extracts of certain strains of marijuana high in a compound known as CBD and low in THC, the chemical that gets pot users high, have reportedly helped children with Wilson’s condition.
 
Now, Gov. Christie has said he will decide by Friday whether to sign the bill into law.

The King of Cannabis And The Search For Rare Marijuana Strains

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, August, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
hunt-for-mj-strainsArjan Roskam. Don't know who he is? He's behind a number of famous marijuana strains, like White Widow and Super Silver Haze—and behind the huge Green House Seed Company, which makes millions of dollars every year, all around an empire of weed. If you smoke pot, chances are, you're familiar with this guy's product without realizing it.
 
Here's a documentary on the man by VICE that follows him (and his associates) as he goes through Colombia. The mission? Finding "landraces," which are rare types of untouched marijuana strains. It's a fascinating, if not rather dangerous journey for sure. And yes, some of the stuff here isn't exactly legal—or as someone in the documentary puts it, "Our life is one foot legal, one foot illegal. We juggle on this fucking razor blade all our life."
 
So, how's it going? Feel free to talk about anything you'd like, either in this open thread or over at TAY. Have a good weekend, folks!

Do you Dab?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, August, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
dab-medical-concentrated-cannabis
It's become a daily occurrence. Customers visit Hugs Alternative Care, a medical-marijuana dispensary in Sacramento, Calif., and ask for "dabs."
 
They are referring to butane hash oil, an especially potent form of marijuana, also known as "honey," "honey oil," "wax" or "earwax" because of its sticky, amber-colored appearance.
 
"We don't carry oils or waxes," Hugs manager Cathy Romer tells them.
 
Nevertheless, it's clear that the demand for dabs is out there.
 
The marijuana industry's latest "it product," dabs has been moving from the fringe into mainstream consciousness for years, although many card-carrying medicinal-marijuana users and even some law-enforcement officials know little about it.
 
High Times magazine featured dabs on its July cover, teasing it as "pot's most powerful high." Vice — the media company that recently accompanied Dennis Rodman on a diplomatic trip to North Korea to meet Kim Jong-un — has released a mini-documentary on the subject.
 
What makes dabs unique is the concentration of THC, the chemical that gives pot users a high. Donald Davies, a former manager of Sacramento dispensary Canna Care, said dabs can be 70 percent THC, compared with high -end cannabis plants, which register between 15 percent and 25 percent.
 
Dab makers soak cannabis in butane or alcohol to extract THC from the plant. After collecting a liquid, they boil off the butane and the remains solidify into what looks like tree sap. Users then "dab" or prick the waxy substance with a needle to pick it up, place it on the tip of a special pipe and ignite it with a small blowtorch to release fumes.
 
Products loaded with THC have been available for decades, carrying the name hash oil or honey oil. But even "regular, old-school hash" was often limited to 50 percent THC, Davies said. The use of butane makes the difference.
 
Addison DeMoura, a co-founder of the cannabis-analysis lab Steep Hill in Oakland, Calif., said dabs' potency benefits many of the sickest patients who cannot smoke cannabis to manage pain and help with appetite.
 
Many collectives are selling more butane hash oil than weed, he added.
 
"If a patient cannot smoke and needs to get the medicine, they can simply put BHO into a cup of tea and consume it that way," he wrote in an email. "The fact that the product is a concentrate makes it easy to infuse and consume. Dabs are part of the progress and the future of consumption."

Vaporizer marijuana use popular with teens

Smoke shops selling everything from colorful bongs and pipes to incense and earrings line an entire block in Manhattan's East Village, a neighborhood popular with teens and the college crowd, and a magnet for young people from all over.
 
I found the G-Pen, a top-of-the-line vaporizer, for $90. They're used by patients who are prescribed medicinal marijuana so they can have the benefits without harmful smoke or the tell-tale odor. They're also used for aromatherapy.
 
Because they look like pens or electronic cigarettes and are discreet, they're becoming more popular with teens.That concerns Dr. Alan Ravitz, the director of Forensic Psychiatry at the Child Mind Institute.
 
The G-Pen's main website offers a vaporizer kit called The Game / G-Box, which is currently sold out. It's named after the popular rapper The Game, who is currently the star of his own VH-1 reality show. He's in his 30s, but appeals to a younger audience.
