I received the following article from Anthony Franciosi, founder of The Honest Marijuana Company out of Colorado, and felt it was worth passing along. Exercising is important, and I think that cannabis is also important. Below are six reasons to combine the two:

The words “marijuana” and “exercise” may not go together upon first glance, but they actually go hand in hand. The marriage of the two is something you may have not considered, but if you’re looking to get ripped–you really should.

Listen up.

Did you know that weed is actually the best thing you can do for your workout routine?

Sure, we know pot has the power to relieve pain and stress, but did you know it can also improve focus, increase metabolism, and make you BETTER at your favorite sports?

Let’s look at the facts.

Some of the most incredible athletes are actually pot smokers.

Don’t believe me? Hmmmm.

I mean, this may sound crazy, but think about it. Remember Michael Phelps? He has (had?) 22 Olympic medals and, as we all know, he’s a big fan of the reefer.

Marijuana Use May Lower Sperm Counts 'Quite a Lot'

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Smoking marijuana more than once a week may lower men's sperm counts by about a third, according to a new study.

Researchers found that the men in the study who smoked marijuana more than once a week had sperm counts that were 29 percent lower, on average, than those who did not smoke marijuana, or used the drug less frequently.

The researchers thought that amount of reduction in sperm count "was quite a lot," said study author Tina Kold Jensen, of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.

They also found that the sperm concentrations (which is measured slightly differently than sperm count) were 28 percent lower in the men who smoked marijuana more than once a week.

It is not clear why marijuana use may decrease a man's  sperm count and concentration, but it may have something to do with how THC — marijuana's psychoactive ingredient — interacts with certain receptors in the testes, the researchers said.

Marijuana TV Commercial Airs In Eugene And Medford After Portland Rejects It

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

oregon medical marijuana business conference ommbcI think that it is well known that Portland, Oregon is one of, if not the, most liberal city in America. Virtually everything is tolerated there, and in many ways Portland is a leader in marijuana culture and in the marijuana industry. The late great Jack Herer owned a headshop (which is still there and ran by his family) in Portland for a reason. With that being said, marijuana discrimination still occurs in Portland. Case in point is the refusal by a Portland media outlet to air a TV commercial for the upcoming Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference. Per Marijuana Politics:

Even after marijuana is legalized in a state, the fight for true equality continues. The fight can be personal, such as the unjust firing of a TV news anchor, or it can be on behalf of a business, or industry as a whole, like KATU in Portlandrefusing to air a commercial for the Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference (OMMBC). Portland is known as being one of the most cannabis-friendly cities in the world, so it comes as a great surprise to me that a marijuana commercial airs in Eugene and Medford after Portland TV rejects the ad. The OMMBC commercial is currently playing on KMTR in Eugene and KTVL in Medford, both network stations are playing the commercial during prime time, including the news.

A commercial for a cannabis vaporizer was supposed to air in Colorado, but was pulled at the last minute recently and some medical marijuana clinics, like Ashland Alternative Health, have advertised on television, but this is, I believe, the firstmarijuana business commercial to mention “recreational” marijuana on network television in Oregon, or anywhere in the country (if there are other “recreational” marijuana commercials airing on network television, please let me know in the comments). It is a shame that KATU, broadcasting in a progressive place like Portland, Oregon, would refuse to run the ad, especially when TV stations in Eugene and Medford were happy to air the commercial.

Does Drinking Coffee Improve Your High?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

Coffee and cannabis are the peanut butter and jelly of the drug world; they complement each other so well it’s unreal. But what makes them a match made in drug heaven? Does smoking marijuana while drinking coffee actually improve your high? There seems to be a relation to places with premium coffee also demanding top quality cannabis like Seattle and Portland—or it might be the rain, who knows. However, turns out there may be some science surrounding your brain, marijuana and coffee and how they all interact when being consumed at the same time.

Caffeine is the world’s most used drug to encourage brain activity and keep you alert. Caffeine doesn’t give you energy, but it does block receptors in your brain from receiving adenosine which is the chemical compound that causes your brain to relax and get sleepy. Because the chemical compound of caffeine is so similar to adenosine, this switch is seamless, but after 6 hours the effectiveness of coffee decreases by 50 percent.

Unlike many other intoxicants available (like alcohol), cannabis contains cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the brain. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) also highly resembles anandamide, which is natural transmitter to the neurones in your brain. After a neuron fires, there is a break in the transmission of thought to not overwhelm the mind and keep you calm and controlled in thought. However, cannabis stops these breaks and allows the user to amplify their thoughts and imagination.

Illinois doctor fights charges he misled patient about marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

Supporters of an Illinois doctor who's in trouble for a marijuana recommendation say his case could have a chilling effect on other doctors' participation in the state's medical cannabis pilot program.

Dr. Joseph Starkman, 36, faces possible suspension or revocation of his license or multiple violations of the Medical Practice Act. Starkman finished his testimony Friday, said Stephanie Wolfson, an attorney for Starkman who was at the hearing.

State regulators allege Starkman misled a 79-year-old patient by issuing a bogus medical marijuana certification for a $250 fee. They claim Starkman told the patient he qualified for marijuana after learning the man had a previous diagnosis of glaucoma, but that Starkman didn't perform an eye exam himself.

"The Department will investigate complaints of illegal or unprofessional behavior by physicians, including those involved in the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program, and, if the evidence clearly demonstrates non-compliant actions, intends to discipline violators," said Terry Horstman, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.

Higher Learning: Colorado County Mulls Scholarship Pot Tax

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) -- Talk about higher learning. A Colorado county may create the world's first public college scholarship program funded with marijuana money.

Pueblo County is considering a 5 percent excise tax on marijuana growers, with half the proceeds designated to a scholarship fund that boosters say would be the first of its kind.

County Commissioner Sal Pace, the sponsor of the tax measure, says it could produce a couple million dollars a year. The full commission will vote on his proposal next week, and if approved, voters would have to approve the excise tax in November before it would take effect.

"What the concept is, is to create the world's first college scholarships funded by marijuana growers," Pace said.

Fifty percent of the proposed excise tax would be divided among Pueblo County high school graduates who stay in the county for college.

Pace called his proposed pot scholarship a natural next step for marijuana legalization. The statewide pot-legalization measure specifically mentioned schools as a beneficiary of pot taxes.

"These are the type of promises folks expected when they approved" marijuana, Pace said.
