Stoners Smoking Gold

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder

There are fruity flavors all the way to just plain rice or hemp papers. Every stoner has a preference on what their favorite is. It’s all about the smoothness and the flavor. The kind of papers you use aren’t usually a huge topic of discussion. It’s mostly about how you roll instead. But with people always looking to look classy, one company targeted the not-so-health-conscious stoners.


Gold is a metal. Even so, it can be added in to food and drinks. Anybody familiar with Goldschlager? Well Shine Rolling Papers seems to have the idea that not only do lame club guys want to drink liquid with flakes of gold in it, stoners apparently want to roll gold joints. The company makes packs of rolling papers (12 sheets per pack) that are made out of gold leaf. For one pack of these flashy papers, the going price is $55. Most stoners pay that much for an eighth to a quarter of weed. Why would they want to spend that on papers?

The papers don’t exactly have the best attitude to avoid ridicule either, as their website states that “most people can’t afford it”, talking of course, about their product. Most people can probably afford it, no doubt. But most stoners are a little smarter with their money, opting to buy the cheaper, flavorful Juicy Jays or perhaps the natural roll of a Raw. There’s nothing wrong with saving money and there’s not a lot of people that will be impressed when you pull out a gold-leaf wrapped joint.


Looks aside, those who have smoked these papers don’t seem to thrilled with the taste. The gold leaf is harsh and who knows what that’s going to do to your lungs and throat while inhaling. It would be much more preferable to smoke something that’s flavored like cookies or cherries. There is a level of satisfaction that an individual feels after rolling a blunt. There are people who can’t roll at all (myself included), so managing to roll without the assistance of a roller is something that people pride themselves on. Why would you spend so much time and effort on rolling something that will ultimately taste like garbage?


If these papers make an appearance at a friend’s smoke session, give it a shot. Everyone has a different preference so who knows? You might end up developing a fondness for smoking a precious metal. However, it’s recommended that you stick to what you’re smoking now. Gold may look cool but a full wallet is cooler.

Cannabis and Exercise

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
While there is still the negative stereotype that stoners are lazy and can't seem to get off the couch, most stoners today are the healthiest people around. Not only does cannabis get you high but it's good for you to ingest the raw leaves in drinks, good for the skin, and apparently helps with exercising as well. Now, a plant that has medical reasons plus these should definitely be put to use in the American society, especially if cannabis would help reduce the amount of unhealthy people in the world.
A study done that was recently released stated that the body's storage of the THC chemical can give exercisers and extra boost, up to almost a month after smoking. As you exercise, you burn off fat. Since THC is a fat-soluble chemical, these bursting fat cells release small amounts of THC back in to your system. The body the starts to feel the effects of smoking a small bowl full of cannabis. Marijuana has constantly been in sports news lately, debating on if the plant helps or hinders athletes in their respective sport.
When you work out, do you notice that you feel good? Like you're happy, positive, and your body just feels amazing? That's because when you exercise, the brain activates the same system that releases endocannabinoids. So when you exercise, you're actually getting the same feelings as when you smoke a bowl. Scientists think that this bodily response to exercise is a way for the body to reduce the feeling of pain when working out. Obviously when you exercise, you stretch muscles and strain your systems. By producing these endocannabinoids, the body fights pain and gives you that "runners high" feeling.
Well, this information will be good for those of you with serious cases of munchies. Those who use cannabis on a regular basis have shown to have fasting insulin levels that are 16% lower than those who don't smoke (fasting insulin is the insulin in your body before ingesting food). The study also pointed out that cannabis smokers had a 17% lower insulin resistance level, not to mention lower waist size average. Basically, cannabis is being looked at as a way to help make the metabolism work faster.
One could definitely use this to argue that cannabis is definitely a help to those who play sports and smoke the drug. As more information on the subject comes out, we'll be able to tell for sure. One thing is clear. Cannabis has so many uses, some that we may not even be able to comprehend just quite yet. What this plant can do for our bodies is amazing and there's no reason that we shouldn't be utilizing it daily.


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
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
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.
