The 'Marijuana Moms of Beverly Hills' who throw cannabis-infused dinner parties

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
beverly-hills-momsA group of mothers in wealthy Beverley Hills, California, is trying to change the perception that drugs and parenting don't mix.
 
These 'marijuana moms' meet regularly for lavish cannabis-infused dinners. Many of them smoke marijuana several times a day to relax and cope with chronic pain. 
 
They say the drug, which is legal with a prescription in the state of California, makes them better parents and better wives. 
 
Many of the women in the group are married. Most have young children. Some are wealthy stay-at-home mothers. Others work part-time as bartenders or in the service industry. One is the wife of a police officer.
 
We've all come up against people who say marijuana is for dirty druggies, but we are proof you can be good parents and productive members of society and use it,' Cheryl Shuman, a 53-year-old mother of two, said. 
'I like to think we are bringing some glamor and exclusivity to marijuana use.'
 
She compared ingesting marijuana on a regular basis to mothers in the 1960s who took 'mother's little helper' pills - Valium - to help them cope with the daily strains of motherhood and running a household. 
 
'Taking marijuana is just the same, it helps us get through the day,' she said. 
 
Shuman throws marijuana-themed dinners every month for her friends, most of whom are mothers with children. She even enlisted the help of top Beverly Hills chef David Schanhals to craft menus. 
 
Past meals have included cannabis leaf salad, chicken fried in cannabis oil and marijuana milk shakes.

Vaporize Cannabis, the healthier way to smoke!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
Why vaporize_alt

Smoking is the definitive delivery method for inhaling cannabis and has begun to stagnate real research efforts, simple because no doctor can endorse smoking. Vaporization has emerged as a safer, viable delivery method for inhaling the active compounds from cannabis. But don’t take our word for it.

One of the studies conducted by the University of California, San Francisco under the umbrella of the CMCR pitted smoking versus vaporizing as a delivery method. The study, entitled “Vaporization as a Smokeless Cannabis Delivery System: A Pilot Study” used medical cannabis supplied by NIDA-grown weed at the University of Mississippi and the Volcano Classic vaporizer. The study illustrated that not only is vaporization equally as effective at delivering the same beneficial compounds of cannabis, the same compounds stay in the system for a greater duration than from smoking. Meaning, you get the best of the medicinal effects longer.

Smoking has been reviled as a cannabis delivery method because of the harmful by products of combustion.  When asked point blank, Dr. Atkinson, Co-Director of the Center for Medical Cannabis Research (and coordinator of a decade long series of studies on the effects of cannabis) could not openly endorse the medical benefits of cannabis strictly based on smoking as the delivery method. Combusting cannabis produces carcinogens, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), tar, and other compounds that lose ground among medicinal research experts quickly.

VAS High_Smoked vs. VaporizedCannabis research hinges on the quantifiability of the delivery into the system. Initial response favored smoking for rapidity of delivery, but only by a matter of minutes. Blood saturation levels were taken at regular intervals among control groups for THC after smoking/vaporizing equal amounts of cannabis of varying concentrations (1.7%, 2.4% 6.8% – VERIFY). Vaporized cannabinoids, once absorbed into the bloodstream through inhalation, do not degrade as quickly as combusted cannabinoids. The difference is a more rapid onset with a quicker deterioration (and often more side effects) versus an only slightly more gradual onset with longer lasting effects.

This is largely based on the fact that volatilization (vaporization) of the glandular trichomes (the resinous oils that contain cannabinoids – the active agents in cannabis) produces a purer derivative in the vapor than the smoke from combustion. Smoking via combustion denatures the herbal content, and over half the compounds are destroyed when ignited. As an added bonus, because the vaporized cannabis is not denatured, it continues to volatilize/vaporize cannabinoids at varying temperatures to produce up to 4 times more vapor than smoking the same amount (your bud lasts longer).

Nevada Becomes the 14th State to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
nevada-medical-marijuanaGov. Brian Sandoval signed SB374 into law Wednesday evening, which authorizes and regulates medical marijuana dispensaries to serve Nevadans with medical marijuana cards. The bill also contains provisions to continue to allow home-growing until 2016. (It’s currently legal for Nevada medical marijuana card holders to grow the plant in their homes.)
 
The tax revenue created will first fund the regulation of the dispensaries. Any remaining revenue will be funneled to education.
 
Nevada is the 14th state to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries, and one of 19 states to allow medicinal pot, along with the District of Columbia.
