Dabs; Good or Bad?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
dabs-yes-or-noIf you don't know what dabs are, you're definitely behind the times on what's going on in the cannabis word. Dabs are a form of concentrated THC that is smoked. It is called numerous names, just like our dear Mary Jane (wax, shatter, oil, errl, etc). Unfortunately for those who indulge in this new form of getting stoned, parents and anti-marijuana campaigners are making dabs out to be the new heroin.
 
I have never tried to dab. It is not something that I am interested in, mostly because I have seen the results of badly made oil that looks like chunks of tar taken directly off of the road. Dabs are normally made with butane, which extracts the THC from the flowers and creates the concentrate, which can range from 70-90% THC. The concentrate can also be made with ice and water but takes a bit more effort but produces a MUCH better and much more desire result; ice wax.
 
The benefits of dabs include the following; They don't smell like weed does. Everyone who's transported weed in their car knows that that shit stinks. It's potent and cops can sniff it out better than doughnuts. Dabs don't give off that unmistakable odor. Another benefit is that since the THC is so concentrated, there is no need to have large amounts on you. It makes it easier to hide the substance in a purse or pocket. The best benefit (I think) is the fact that there are devices available to smoke dabs out of that are easily mistaken for an e-cigarette. Law enforcement won't know if you're exhaling water vapor or THC.
 
Now for the negative side. Whenever peoples tolerance to a drug gets too high, they seem to want to create something stronger to get the desired effect. While it may make sense to us as stoners, others don't see it that way. The making of dabs is extremely dangerous and should only EVER be attempted by a person who knows exactly what they are doing. There are numerous reports from all over the place of stupid kids trying to make BHO inside their house and blowing themselves up. Does that sound like meth to anyone else? That's how the anti-marijuana people view it. Uneducated kids are making the mistake of turning marijuana in to something that's actually harmful.
 
As I stated earlier, the area I live in does not produce quality shatter and I've seen severe butane headaches and people completely unable to function because they're literally too stoned. I'm not about that at all and would rather wait to try dabs when I have the opportunity to get well made product. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I think that it is a serious issue in the marijuana community. While the majority of stoners are getting higher than ever, there are people getting hurt trying to make this stuff. Obviously, since we know the conditions needed to produce this product, we have an inside perspective. Parents of the children who have hurt themselves by making BHO see it very differently than we do and will continue to use arguments like this against marijuana legalization.

National Cancer Institute: Cannabis Has Antitumor Capabilities, Is An Appetite Stimulant And Painkiller

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-has-antituor-capabilitiesIn claims that are in vast contrast to those of the Drug Enforcement Administrationand other government entities, the government-funded National Cancer Institute has a report published on its website which proclaims several benefits of cannabis and cannabinoids, citing numerous scientific studies to back their claims. The page was updated last month.
 
The report starts by explaining what cannabinoids are;”Cannabinoids are a group of 21-carbon-containing terpenophenolic compounds produced uniquely by Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica species”, the report continues, “These plant-derived compounds may be referred to as phytocannabinoids. Although delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive ingredient, other known compounds with biologic activity are cannabinol, cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene, cannabigerol, tetrahydrocannabivarin, and delta-8-THC. CBD, in particular, is thought to have significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity without the psychoactive effect (high) of delta-9-THC.”
 
The report then goes on to talk about the potential antitumor capabilities of cannabis and cannabinoids.
 
“One study in mice and rats suggested that cannabinoids may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors.” They continue; “Cannabinoids may cause antitumor effects by various mechanisms, including induction of cell death, inhibition of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion and metastasis. One review summarizes the molecular mechanisms of action of cannabinoids as antitumor agents. Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.”
 
The NCI clearly doesn’t agree with the government’s stance that cannabis has “no accepted medical value”.
 
According to the report; “An in vitro study of the effect of CBD on programmed cell death in breast cancer cell lines found that CBD induced programmed cell death, independent of the CB1, CB2, or vanilloid receptors. CBD inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor-positive and estrogen receptor-negative breast cancercell lines, inducing apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner while having little effect on nontumorigenic, mammary cells.”
 
In addition, the report states, “both plant-derived and endogenous cannabinoids have been studied for anti-inflammatory effects.”

Marijuana: The Next Diabetes Drug?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-the-new-diabetes-drugPatient comments were that: "Marijuana alleviates my pain," and "I started smoking marijuana to help my pain and it cured my Diabetes". With these two comments, I decided that I must browse the web to see if anybody else found that marijuana really did alleviate the Diabetes neuropathy pain.
 
It has been known in Great Britain where Cannabis as medicine was first introduced for obstetrical pain with Queen Victoria about 1850 that Cannabis/marijuana was effective for pain. The news got to the U.S. in a few months and the greatest use was in our Civil War to get wounded Veterans off opium and alcohol, which it successfully did.
 
In addition to its medical use, "Turkish parlors" (hash parlors) sprung up like mushrooms and were presumably used mostly by women who back in those days did not work outside of their homes. This was in the pre-"wine in the afternoon days".
 
Most people today are not aware that marijuana was very much socially acceptable, especially in the United States, between 1880 and 1941. Here is an excerpt from DrugLibrary.org: "...New York City, where marijuana "tea pads" were established about 1920. They resembled opium dens or speakeasies except that prices were very low; a man could get high for a quarter on marijuana smoked in the pad, or for even less if he bought the marijuana at the door and took it away to smoke.
 
"Most of the marijuana, it was said, was harvested from supplies growing wild on Staten Island or in New Jersey and other nearby states; marijuana and hashish imported from North Africa were more potent and cost more. These tea pads were tolerated by the city, much as alcohol speakeasies were tolerated. By the 1930s there were said to be 500 of them in New York City alone."
 
Getting to the subject, I looked up Marijuana for Diabetes and found a few references to pain (neuropathy) but when I punched up marijuana for diabetic neuropathy I discovered a tsunami with maybe about 35,000 posts. What I found was astonishing!
 
I found that millions of patients are afflicted with Diabetic neuropathy and it can affect almost every body system with neuropathy in the feet being the most troublesome. I also discovered the most common medications were, in a word, ridiculous. Those were: Tricyclic anti-depressants, other anti-depressants, anti-convulsants, opiates and opioids, and gabapentin (neurontin). None of these work well for the pain, and in effect cause Zombification.
 
Another list from 1999, by Dr. Aaron Vinik, included: Capsaicin (from chili peppers), Clondine, a brain depressant, Gabapentin (neurontin), Carbomazpine (an epilepsy drug), Dialantin (another anti-epileptic), and anti-depressants, again. I shuddered at this list.
 
The next oldest reference was from 2003 by Dr. Derrick Wade, at Oxford University, who wrote about neuro-genic symptoms which I conclude is "pain".
 
It is interesting to me that Dr. Sanjay Gupta in his "WEED epiphany" mentioned that marijuana was used in the U.S. to treat neuropathic pain until 1943. No reference was given. One reference in Nat Med Talk stated that the U.S. Government has a patent for the use of Cannabis for the treatment of neuropathic pain.

Medical marijuana faces uphill climb to be legalized in N.C.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
medical-marijuana-legalization-ncIt didn’t get a lot of attention, ended abruptly and took a back seat to the likes of tax reform and the budget, but the issue of medical marijuana legalization in North Carolina did get a hearing this year in the Republican-controlled legislature.
 
Rep. Kelly Alexander Jr., D-Mecklenburg, sponsored a bill he said would have “permitted dispensaries to be created in North Carolina, and would have permitted it (medical marijuana) to be taxed and appropriately regulated.”
 
His efforts were quickly shut down – but not before a brief hearing.
 
“It got one of the fastest hearings in the Rules Committee of the long session, and it was reported out unfavorably from Rules after about 15 to 20 minutes of discussion,” Alexander said. “By putting it on the ‘unfavorable calendar,’ that pretty much meant you’d have to get a two-thirds vote to pull it off the calendar and get it considered on the floor, which of course didn’t happen because the majority leadership wasn’t in favor of that.”
 
Parking the bill on the unfavorable calendar also means it cannot be considered again during the two-year session, though a restructured measure could get a hearing if there is political will.
