New Study Finds THC Can Treat Parkinson's Disease

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, October, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
thc-can-treat-parkinsonsAccording to a study being published in next month’s issue of the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, and published online early by the National Institute of health, has found that THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) can treat Parkinson’s disease.
 
According to the study’s introduction; “Cannabinoids such as Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) are neuroprotective in animal and cell culture models of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In a PD cell culture model we recently demonstrated that Δ9-THC is neuroprotective through activation of the nuclear receptor peroxisomal proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ)”.
 
Researchers, while studying the effects of THC on these cell-culture models of Parkinson’s disease, found that; “Δ9-THC resulted in significant inhibition of MPP+ induced oxidative stress”. They conclude that; “Δ9-THC induces PPARγ dependent mitochondrial biogenesis, a mechanism that may be beneficial for the treatment of PD.”
 
The study was conducted by researchers at the Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.

Strain Review; GSC

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, October, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
gsc-weed-girl-scout-cookies-thcfinder
I've never seen a strain blow up so quickly in the Instagram weed community as the Girl Scout Cookies strain. It's funny because when talking about it, there are still some people who don't know that it's weed. My boyfriend listened to me talk about this strain nonstop for days and probably had the suspicion that I might've been pregnant until saw a picture and realized that no, it's not cookies I'm after. It's this incredible strain of bud.
 
Girl Scout Cookies was bred by the Hemp Center and is a mix between OG Kush, Cherry Kush, and Durban Poison. Basically, this means that it tastes like cotton candy. It's a very sweet strain that patients love. THC in this awesome strain can reach up to 23%. It's powerful and smooth, with an absolutely beautiful appearance that's sure to have you drooling.
 
Since this strain is pretty strong, I must say that first time smokers shouldn't smoke too much of this the first time. But for the seasoned stoners, get this strain immediately. Seriously, stop reading and find a dispensary near you and go get it. Get stoned off of it and then come back and keep reading!

First Doctor Convicted For Improperly Recommending Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
doctor-arrested-for-mj-prescriptionThe distinction Dr. Joseph Montante now holds is something he does not welcome.
 
Montante is the first Colorado doctor convicted of prescribing medical marijuana without conducting a proper exam.
 
In the state of Colorado a doctor must find that the patient has a debilitating condition to recommend the use of marijuana. Many see that as being open for interpretation, so law enforcement has stepped in.
 
Montante’s problems started when an undercover officer visited his office in Loveland. He said he wanted to get a medical marijuana card but he did not have any of the required conditions.
 
In a tape recording obtained by CBS4 from the visit Montante can be heard asking if the undercover officer had any pain. The officer then told Montante that he hurt his ankle several years ago playing basketball in high school.
 
“So I guess I had better look at your ankle right?” replied Dr. Montante.
 
CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger traveled to Montante’s home in Northern Colorado and asked him if he ever recommended marijuana for anyone who didn’t need it.
 
“No, never,” said Montante. “And I never attempted to deceive anyone.”
 
Montante was sentenced to 30 days in prison plus 3 years probation for attempting to influence a public servant. His medical license was suspended as well. Montante claims he was entrapped.
 
“The undercover agent lied to get into my office,” Montante claimed.

Strain Review; Trainwreck

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
trainwreck-weedThe name really says it all. This strain will knock you on your ass after you cough up both of your lungs. You'll be stoned within the first few seconds of that first hit and is a strain that you can smoke whenever you feel like. It's an enjoyable high that will allow you to be productive and go about your day. Just be careful... This is one of the stinkiest strains on the market!
 
Wreck is good for pretty much anything. It depends on the person smoking it. Some say that this bud makes them highly social and extremely creative. Others state that it's a great bedtime bud and will relax you off in to dream land. It's a popular strain and also very stinky. Bagging this will not prevent people from smelling it. Make sure you're carrying it in a smell proof container.
 
The negative side to Trainwreck would probably be the overwhelming creativity that some people experience. While sometimes, it's good to have a lot of thoughts in your head, it becomes hard to focus occasionally in conversations because the weed causes far too many interesting ideas. It also may hinder sleeping, as a lot of people have issues when they try to sleep and have too much going on in their head. The first time that you try Trainwreck, do it during the mid-afternoon so that you know how it will effect you. If you end up taking a nap, it's not the end of the world. And if you start writing a story, chances are it'll be a good one!
 
Trainwreck is a Hybrid sativa-dominant cannabis strain that hits you as hard as a freight train that you don't see coming. Burns quick and produces thick smoke that will almost certainly get you coughing.

Strain Review; Master Jedi

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
master-jedi-strain-reviewAre you ready to feel the force? This strain will get you there. Master Jedi might've actually come from a planet in George Lucas's imagination... Or perhaps it's just a cross between Master Kush and Skywalker. Either way, this strain is dank. It yields a large harvest with musky smelling buds that is always associated with kush strains.
 
The Master Jedi is another indica (have you noticed that I seem to favor indicas? I'm totally a fan of couch lock, not going to lie) and is sure to make you feel like you're a Jedi. This strain has the unique trait that makes your body tingle, as if the Force was actually a real thing. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you're not going to be throwing people across the room by waving your hand after smoking a joint of Master Jedi. It's a bummer, I know. But that tingly feeling is sure to make you feel good! Not to mention that users of this strain have reported that it has an arousing effect on them. Date night? Grab some Master Jedi ;)
 
The primary effect of this strain in regards to a medical benefit is the fact that it helps with muscle spasms. In the documentary that was recently release by Dr. Sanjay, he spoke with a young man who had a spasming diaphragm. Master Jedi would be a strain that would help with that. It also helps with depression. Good strain to help people who would rather choose a natural medicine for their depression rather than turning to Zoloft. The users of this strain really have nothing bad to say about it. After reading positive reviews and consumer ratings on this strain, I suggest that you try it the next time you're looking for something new.
