Strain Review; Fire OG

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
fire-og-strain-review
With a name that contains "fire", this strain has some seriously high standards to live up to. Luckily, it makes the cut. The Fire OG strain is a highly prized bud to have in your jar and is a huge part of the cannabis scene in California. With a high price and an even higher effect, this strain is something that you definitely should keep around for that one awesome strain that's needed to pick your day up out of the gutter. Fire OG even lives up to it's name in it's scent, providing an odd charcolish smell, rather than the traditional weed smells like lemon and earth.
 
The buds of the Fire OG strain vary in appearance depending on who grew it and where. Depending on who grows it, the strain can look like two completely different plants. But when grown the correct way by an experienced grower can yield buds that sell for over $70 an eighth. The trichomes on Fire are amazing and are sure to get you extremely baked. The buds are sticky and at first contain the smell of lemon but that quickly vanishes once the buds have been broken open and stuck in to the grinder.
 
Fire OG has an amazing muscle and pain effect. This makes it perfect for patients dealing with migraines, arthritis, and other pain related injuries and illnesses. Any patient that has tried Fire OG knows that it contains incredible relief, much better than any pill that is sold at the drug store. The emotion effects consist of euphoria and tranquility, making Fire OG another amazing strain for patients in need of a mental leg up. The strain works quickly and is perfect for an immediate fix.

Cannabinoids Can Treat Multiple Sclerosis Better Than Pharmaceuticals

A study published in the journal Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found promising evidence that cannabinoids can provide a natural treatment for the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
 
“In an experimental mouse model of MS-related spasticity, Sativex [a product made entirely from cannabis] dose-dependently improved hind limb flexion/stiffness and a dosage of 10 mg/kg was shown to be as [or more] effective as the most widely established anti-spasticity treatment baclofen (5 mg/kg)”, claims the study.
 
According to researchers at the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry at Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche in Italy; “These findings with Sativex are very promising and offer encouragement for MS patients, the majority of whom will develop spasticity-related disabling and recalcitrant symptoms. Furthermore, research into the endocannabinoid system may offer potential in other neurodegenerative, inflammatory and pain disorders.”

New York Governor To Legalize Medical Marijuana Through Executive Action

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
ny-govNew York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has plans this week to announce an executive action that would legalize medical marijuana. Governor Cuomo’s plan is a strict one, but would be a step in the right direction. According to media reports out of New York the executive action would allow 20 hospitals across New York to prescribe marijuana to people with cancer, glaucoma and/or other conditions that meet standards to eventually be set by the New York State Department of Health.
 
No other state medical marijuana program was created by an executive action. The first ones were via the initiative process because politicians weren’t prepared to pass legislation to create medical marijuana programs. Then, slowly, state Legislatures created programs. This is definitely a welcomed third route for legalizing medical marijuana, and one that I hope other Governor’s will pursue.
 
According to the New York Times, “The governor’s action also comes as advocates for changing drug laws have stepped up criticism of New York City’s stringent enforcement of marijuana laws, which resulted in nearly 450,000 misdemeanor charges from 2002 to 2012, according to the Drug Policy Alliance, which advocates more liberal drug laws.”
 
Medical marijuana has had growing support in New York for quite awhile now. It’s a shame that it has taken this long for New York patients to finally get the legal protection they deserve. The fight is far from over. Just because the Governor issues an executive action doesn’t mean that there won’t be push back inside and outside of the state. And until every patient has safe access to safe medicine, activists in New York should remain as active as possible.

Marijuana Can Kill Colon Cancer Cells

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-kills-colon-cancer-cellsA new study published in the most recent issue of the journal Phytomedicine, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-based medicines may provide a cure for colon cancer.
 
For the study, researchers “investigated the effect of a standardized Cannabis sativa extract with high content of cannabidiol (CBD), here named CBD BDS, i.e. CBD botanical drug substance, on colorectal cancer cell proliferation and in experimental models of colon cancer in vivo.”
 
While conducting the study, it was found that; “CBD reduced cell proliferation in tumoral, but not in healthy, cells. In vivo, CBD reduced AOM-induced preneoplastic lesions and polyps as well as tumour growth in the xenograft model of colon cancer.”
 
Researchers conclude that “CBD attenuates colon carcinogenesis and inhibits colorectal cancer cell proliferation via CB1 and CB2 receptor activation. The results may have some clinical relevance for the use of Cannabis-based medicines in cancer patients.”

Strain Review; Berkeley

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder

A lot of people these days are under enough stress that it makes them physically ill. The most common effect of this increased stress is migraines. Everyone around me constantly seems to be suffering from a serious headache, especially my boyfriend. Does this sound like something that you deal with if? If it is, I highly (haha) recommend that you pick up a bit of Berkeley bud to cure that annoying pain in your skull.
 
This weed is said to be the product of a Berkeley University student. It has a very high THC content (up to 28%) and flowers in about four weeks, which is insanely fast and now I desire to get my hands on some of these seeds. The Berkeley strain is primarily sativa and is sure to give you an energetic high. Be careful though! Some smokers have reported some anxiety and paranoia related with this strain.
 
While paranoia may be a negative side effect, you'll be able to go about your day with a more manageable pounding inside of your head, rather than a full blown migraine. The Berkeley strain will also provide enhanced creativity, an uplifting high, and as well as some added energy. Since nausea is a side effect of migraines, this strain will also help with that problem!

Strain Review; Chocolate Chunk

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 1st 2014 by THCFinder

I'll give you one guess as to what this strain will help. Well a lot of you probably read the blog about marijuana and PMS that I recently wrote. Here's one of the strains that will help the ladies deal with the cramps, fatigue, and annoyances that come with being a female. Chocolate chunk flowers fast, in 55 days, so it's a good strain to have around for a fast harvest.
 
Chocolate gives the smoker a lazy, elevated high. It'll make you sink in the that couch for the whole day so be careful. It is highly effective in fighting stress and the symptoms related with PMS. Not only that, but this particular strain also helps with depression, anxiety, and don't forget appetite loss. As most girls know, all of these things result from PMS. Your significant other will be extremely happy if you keep a jar of Chunk around.
 
You really can't argue with such a good tasting, beneficial bud. It has a high indica percentage and will help with sleeping as well, since it already makes you incredibly lazy. This weed is so powerful that it makes patients forget the fact that they're in pain. This strain is a GREAT one for medical benefits and not only can help PMS but I would assume would be excellent for people who play sports as well, with the high stress and possibly painful environment that they deal with every day. If you see Chocolate Chunk at your local clinic, at least try a bit of it or keep it around for one of those sick days!
