Study: Daily Marijuana Use Is Perfectly Healthy

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
smoking-weed-dailyI smoke marijuana daily, and have for about two decades now. Every time I have ever gone to the doctor during the last two decades I have always been given a clean bill of health. I know a lot of people that use marijuana on a daily basis. Jay Smoker probably smokes marijuana every fifteen minutes if he can. Marijuana opponents will always say that daily marijuana use is harmful. However, a new study suggests otherwise.
 
“Researchers from Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine examined 589 drug users, more than 8 out of 10 of then pot smokers, and determined that the weed aficionados among them were no more likely to go see the doctor than non-drug consumers.” According to the study, which was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
 
Do you use marijuana on a daily basis? If so, how many times a day do you consume marijuana? How would you rate your overall health? I’d like to see a study that went even further to compare different methods of consumption. Eating marijuana and vaporizing marijuana would be the healthiest, but just how much healthier is something that I’ve wanted to know for awhile now.
 
Do you believe that ‘all marijuana use is medical?’ There are many people out there that think so. I once saw a guy on TV explain that he doesn’t use marijuana because he’s sick necessarily, but that he uses marijuana to ‘be well.’ I personally don’t think that all marijuana use is medical. For me personally, there are times that I use it to alleviate pain, while other times I just want to get very, very baked. Different strokes for different folks I suppose!

BHO Explosions On The Rise

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, November, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
bho-explosions
Butane hash oil has been around for quite some time but only recently has gained popularity among the young and stupid. With two totally different opinions on the benefits of marijuana, some people seem to be getting confused to how to properly obtain BHO. The amount of explosions due to stupid people trying to make their own shatter is on the rise. With no one around to educate these people, the number of injuries resulting from BHO explosions will continue to grow. People really need to pay attention on how to PROPERLY get BHO out of their marijuana.
 
The biggest thing to remember about BHO... Don't EVER make it indoors. Keeping butane fumes locked in a small space while simultaneously using a stove is the stupidest idea ever. Even without saying that marijuana is involved, the lack of common sense that goes in to planning these BHO runs is unbelievable. People don't mix bleach and ammonia in small, cramped spaces. What gives individuals the idea that butane gas isn't dangerous and extremely flammable? Trying to make BHO inside is asking for disaster.
 
Even those who are attempting to run BHO outdoors are blowing themselves up. A 25-year-old in Santa Rosa got busted with over 100 pounds of marijuana in different forms when her backyard hash lab exploded, scorching her backyard and some of the surrounding buildings. She was arrested and charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. There were other individuals in the house at the time, one of which was released from the scene and authorities believe that there was more involved but managed to escape before police arrived.
 
What it comes down to is that only professionals that are educated in the subject should attempt to be making BHO. It is a dangerous action and people need to be cautious. The only way that we can prevent more people from hurting themselves is to try to educate them before they try to make shatter by taking instructions from a YouTube video. Not saying that all of the BHO makers that record their processes are idiots but most of the videos shown online of people making BHO are in bad conditions, little light, and cramped spaces.
 
Butane hash oil is a benefit for patients that are in extreme pain. The highly concentrated THC is amazing for pain. Unfortunately, these people blowing themselves up looks extremely bad for the concentrated THC community. By making marijuana look like a cousin of meth, the media and anti-cannabis parties are able to use this as a weapon against medical marijuana, regardless of the positive outcome for patients. BHO is an excellent way to medicate but this reoccurring trend of stupidity will only bring negative attention

New Study: Cannabidiol Can Help Cigarette Smokers Quit

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, November, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-you-quit-smoking
A new placebo-controlled study published in last month’s issue of the journal Addictive Behaviors has found that cannabidiol – a cannabis compound – can significantly reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by those wishing to quit.
 
For the study, participants were given cannabidiol (CBD) through an inhaler – the CBD was derived entirely from the actual cannabis plant. Participants were separated into two groups, one which received the inhaler containing CBD, and one which contained a placebo.
 
Researchers found that those in the placebo group showed no difference in the amount that they smoked. However, those in the CBD group smoked, on average, 40% less after just a 1-week period.
 
“We found that CBD seems to reduce the salience of cues. It also can reduce anxiety and may affect a memory process called ‘reconsolidation,’ which is where when a memory of the reward of smoking is re-activated by seeing someone smoking, it is rendered vulnerable to destruction”, says Dr. Celia Morgan, co-author of the study. “CBD might mean these positive smoking memories are gradually erased,”

Marijuana And Aggression

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, November, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-helps-with-aggressionViolence and aggression are a large part of the society that we live in. As we're constantly surrounded by war and negative messages, it's difficult to keep calm and relaxed. A lot of people have trouble containing their anger, as they just don't have the time to beat up on punching bags or get any sort of physical exertion (One of the most healthy ways to deal with aggression). But if you don't have time to exercise, what other option is there other than medicine?
 
Marijuana is an incredible way to just chill. One hit of this magical herb and not only does your adrenaline level plunge, but it becomes hard to remember what you were angry about in the first place. While marijuana is actually a stimulant, it does have sedating effects on the users. Anyone who's had a bad day and comes home to a packed bowl knows that cannabis is a great way to just unwind at the end of a long, tiring day.
 
However, there is a negative side to this argument. Some believe that since some smokers experience extreme paranoia, anxiety, and fear, this could lead to aggressive outbursts. This tends to happen more in young smokers, who have other issues factoring in to their aggressive behavior. In these younger users, the cannabis can actually promote an aggressive response if there are other emotional low points in the person's life. However, it isn't just cannabis that causes the aggressive emotions. Those that are panicky before smoking will get even worse after smoking.
 
Smoking should be an enjoyable experience. If you experience anxiety and stress when you're high, you need to be trying a different strain. Look for indicas that will chill you out and make you be more concerned with how comfortable your couch is, rather than what's going on with schoolwork or friends. Also, younger smokers need to be careful when ingesting marijuana. While I do believe that everyone should be able to smoke, there needs to be more research done on the effects of marijuana on adolescents.

Stoner Guide; Passing Your Piss Test

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder

Smokers these days are not the typical closet stoner. The stoners of today are proud and have no problem discussing their cannabis use to anyone who will join the conversation. There is still one issue with being obvious. Jobs. Even though more and more people accept cannabis in to their lives, employers are still screwing stoners over like no other by drug testing for THC prior to employment.

Doctor

First of all, if there’s no trace of any harder drug, there should be no issue. THC does not impair job performance if you’re working at Sears or Walmart or Target (All of which test for drugs upon employment). Seriously, how hard is it to sell electronics to eager consumers? Not that difficult. It is extremely difficult to fool these tests too. Now, they test for dilution of the sample so no more mixing in water, as well as tests that show how much water you’ve been drinking in efforts to cleanse your system. How is a stoner supposed to get a job if everyone deems THC as a job stopping hazard?

DrugTesting-br

Here’s what you need to know if you get stuck in a position where you’re required to pee in a cup in order to make some money (This system is so flawed). Every method will fail except the synthetic urine. The drinks will not work. They are a money making scheme that preys on the hopes of passing their drug test. There is one way to successfully scam the doctors testing the sample and that’s to use synthetic urine or some from someone else who doesn’t smoke.

S5-Belt-Kit-Contents

Synthetic urine can be purchased online or at smoke shops. It can be in liquid or powdered form. Since most clinic use blue toilet water, get the liquid form if you don’t feel like mixing the powder. These products come with a temp gauge as well, so be sure that you warm it up to the correct body temp of 92-100 degrees. Be aware that the liquid synthetic urine does not bubble when poured, nor does it smell like urine. Depending on how thorough the lab is, they may reject the sample if it doesn’t look enough like urine. The powdered synthetic pee has both bubbles and a smell, so there will be no suspicion there.

o-WELFARE-DRUG-TEST-facebook

Someday, this problem will be of no concern to stoners and we’ll be able to apply for all sorts of jobs and not be limited because marijuana helps us. It’s pretty unfair that a lot of jobs are so adamant about drug testing. If the person has a good work history, what does it matter what they’re doing in their spare time? It shouldn’t be an issue. But if you do get caught in a situation where you’re going to get tested, remember that the synthetic urine is the only way to go.

Why Texting Your Dealer Sucks

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
texting-your-drug-dealer
Texting a drug dealer is always a pain. Some are hard to get a hold of and other times, you just have a hard time figuring out what to say. Whatever your problem is, talking to a dealer via text can be a seriously frustrating endeavor. This list is ten of the most annoying situations when texting someone who has marijuana that you want.
 
- "Hey I got your number from FRIEND A. I'm FRIEND B."
Texting someone you've never met before is weird in the first place. Texting someone who you've never met that you're trying to buy bud from is even worse. It's best to meet these people before you text them if possible. Have a mutual friend introduce you. Meeting up with dealers that you don't know well can be extremely annoying (I had some punk 18-year-old continuously call me for days after I bought bud from him... It got to the point where I almost changed my number!!!)
 
- "Do you have fishing tackle?"
Talking in code makes absolutely no sense. It's tough to understand what people are referring to sometimes. While it may be smart to talk in code if you're worried someone will get your phone and read it but it's easier to just put a passcode on the phone instead. Talking in code can wind up being too confusing to even want to deal with. If being straightforward makes you feel weird, just ask the dealer if they're free to get coffee and then just meet them where ever. Keep it simple if you're going to talk in code. Making things complicated not only gets confusing but annoying.
 
- "Hey what's up?"
The first text that gets sent to a dealer is the most frustrating one. I don't know if I'm the only one that does this but I spend at least five minutes with my fingers above my phone's keyboard, trying to think of the best way to tell my dealer I need weed. Of course, coming right out and saying it isn't the best idea. You have to go through the formality of saying hello first.
 
- "Hey what's 3.5?"
Trying to establish the amount of bud that you need can be a very tricky maneuver if you're trying to be inconspicuous. Eighths, quarters, half ounces, etc are pretty obvious terms. I suppose that using the numbers makes the most sense, unless you and your dealer have worked out another system of amounts.
 
- Drug dealers don't work on normal people time
This is a proven fact that dealers do not work in the same time zone as the rest of us. They never get anywhere on time and "I'll be there in fifteen minutes" means that they won't show up until tomorrow night. Dealer time is also never convenient for the buyer and the only time they ever seem to be free is when you're busy.
 
- Where is the line between "annoying" and "I want some damn weed!"?
Since dealers don't work on our time, they also don't really answer their phones when they're needed. So how many times do you text a dealer before you're deemed annoying? Who knows. Sometimes, repeat texting is the only way for a dealer to pay attention to you.
