Forget Powered Alcohol, Is Powdered Weed Next?

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, March, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

The same technology that allows you to store a mix drink in powdered form, works for THC as well. “Powdered alcohol,” as it's called, was first patented in 1972 but didn’t gain approval by the FDA until March 10, 2014.

Palcohol” takes advantage of a clever class of chemicals known as cyclodextrins. These cyclic structures of sugar molecules are known to absorb other compounds into the center of their rings. Like the Kirby of pharmacology, cyclodextrins absorb other molecules and adopt their power. A cyclodextrin can absorb up to 60% of its weight in alcohol; it maintains itself as a powder but if you dissolve it in water the alcohol gets released making an alcoholic drink.

Just as cyclodextrin can absorb the powers of booze, it can also absorb the powers of THC: experiments with THC-cyclodextrin complexes increase THC water solubility by 1000 times. THC can simply insert itself into the middle of a modified cyclodextrin complex, allowing it to be dissolve in water almost just as well as sugar on its own.

While “powdered alcohol” just facilitates people getting drunk more easily, when “powdered weed” hits the market it will be there to help victims of cancer, AIDS, MS and other debilitating illnesses that benefit from cannabinoids. THC’s poor water solubility makes it difficult to prescribe to patients who need a constant dosage. Stay tuned for the latest research updates on “powdered weed.”

My Sheep Ate My Pot

Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, October, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
my-sheep-ate-my-potYou read the title right. A herd of sheep recently made news when they discovered a dump of cannabis on the side of the road. And I’m not talking about a single baggie or anything. This pile of plants was huge and the police estimated that it was worth about $5,500. The sheep managed to eat a great amount of the pot before their owner, Nellie Budd (no pun intended but funny right??), stopped them and informed the police.
 
 
When the police arrived, they weren’t previously aware of the scene and were baffled as to where such a large amount of cannabis had come from. The plants had been tossed off near one of the grazing areas in large black trash bags. The flock wasn’t deterred and managed to chew through the bags and get to the weedy goodness inside. But while they had no knowledge of the pile of pot, the cops assured Budd that they would investigate the case fully. They’re still on the hunt for the person who left the weed on the side of the road. There are no leads as of right now.
 
 
Ms. Budd inspected the sheep and discovered that there were no ill side effects from the absurd amount of weed that they ate, which is good. Some animals do develop adverse effects when too much bud is eaten. While animals do possess cannabinoid receptors in their brains much like us, they handle the substance much differently. Some animals pass out, throw up, and seize when given too much cannabis. But the farmers said that the flock is fine.
 
 
“My sheep weren’t quite on their backs with legs in the air but they probably had the munchies,” the sheep owners said.

Diamonds Or Bud?

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, October, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
diamonds-or-bud
We all love cannabis. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this and I wouldn’t be writing it. The plant helps a lot of us get through our daily grind, whether helping us eat, ease pain, laugh, sleep, or just deal with people in general. But most of us probably wouldn’t steal a $160,000 diamond from a UPS plane and trade it for $20 worth of bud… But Walter Earl Morrison, age 20, did just that and got caught, go figure.
 
 
Morrison was working to UPS while unloading planes in the cargo area of Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, when he stuffed one of the packages under his shirt. He believed that the package contained cash but instead, he discovered that the box held an extremely valuable hunk of diamond. Instead of buying a ton of cannabis, Morrison allegedly traded the single stoned (again, valued around $160,000) for $20 worth of cannabis. The quality of the cannabis purchased wasn’t stated in the report but we can assume that it was probably substandard and not nearly worth what the diamond was.
 
 
According to the owner of the House of Diamonds, Brent Taubman, any single stone worth more than $100,000 is a very sought after piece. Imagine even holding a single piece of geographical fragment that was worth such a staggering sum. Most stoners would be too afraid to even touch such an object but Morrison didn’t think so. The diamond was recovered from the person Morrison traded it to and returned to the original recipient. UPS fired Morrison and he is being charged with felony theft. 
 
 
If faced with such a choice, which option would you choose? The diamond worth enough to buy three brand new Mercedes plus a trip to Las Vegas for a weekend or maybe a gram of marijuana? Whatever you would choose theoretically, please be sure to avoid stealing $160,000 diamonds and trading them for things that are valued at far less.

Man Arrested After Cops Find Pot WHERE?!

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, October, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
man-arrested-after-cops-find-weed-in-his-fat-folds
My mother works in a hospital as a security officer. She's a tough lady, having to oversee things such as patient admittance, problematic psychiatric patients, and autopsies. Needless to say, she's definitely seen some crazy stuff at her stint in this hospital. But it's a job and my mom is a tough lady so she handles the challenges like no other.
 
One time, she told me a story about a woman that was very overweight, to the point where she was brought to the hospital for fear of severe health issues. The nurses in the hospital noticed a bad skin rash on the woman while they were giving her a sponge bath and upon further inspection, noticed that a single Oreo cookie had lodged itself in the woman's skin and had begun to cause the rash to flare. It's kind of a gross story but you'll understand this somewhat awkward introduction in a second.
 
Police officers pulled over Christopher Mitchell, 42, and Keithian Robers, 38, early in June for not wearing seat belts in their vehicle. When the cops asked why the two weren't wearing the belts, Mitchell stated that he was too big for the seatbelt, being a very robust man. But the men apparently didn't appear to confident in themselves and their nervous behavior caused the cops to summon a K-9 unit to check for drugs in the car.
 
The dog alerted the cops to the presence of narcotics in the car and the officers searched the men and the vehicle. When they searched Mitchell, they found more than they bargained for. The man had stashed not only 23 grams of marijuana in his stomach folds but also uncovered a handgun, $7000 cash, and a baggie of cocaine as well. Roberts was charged with possession in addition to Mitchell getting a ticket for not wearing his seatbelt. The report didn't state whether the weed was bagged or not.

Deputies say Rodney Brown allowed them to search the property. They found 10 marijuana plants outside and drug paraphernalia inside the house.
 
Rodney Brown was taken to jail and posted bail. It wasn't clear whether he has an attorney and a phone number was not available for him.
