Did You Know?
Little Known Facts in the Medical Marijuana Debate
- Marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, meaning it is considered to have a “high potential for abuse,” “no currently accepted medical use,” and “a lack of accepted safety.” Rescheduling marijuana to the less restrictive Schedule II or III (45 KB) remains a contentious issue.
- The University of Mississippi has grown marijuana (including a placebo with virtually no THC) for US government-approved research since 1968. Each year the university grows 1.5 acres, 6.5 acres, or none, depending upon demand.
- The first cannabis-based prescription medicine, Sativex, was launched in the United Kingdom on June 21, 2010. Sativex is a mouth spray approved to treat spasticity in patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
- Eight of the 10 states that had legalized medical marijuana by 2006 saw a decrease in teen use of marijuana from 1999 to 2006.
- The states with the three highest possession limits among the 17 states with legal medical marijuana are Oregon (24 plants), California (18 plants), and New Mexico (16 plants).
- Smoked or inhaled marijuana takes only a few minutes to reach the brain, where a series of cellular reactions occur that ultimately produce the “high” feeling. When eating or drinking marijuana, this process can take up to an hour.
- When swallowing marijuana (in teas, brownies, etc.), the main active ingredient, Delta-9-THC, is transformed by the liver into the more psychoactively powerful Delta-11-THC.
- In 1978 the US government started the Compassionate Investigational New Drug (IND) program. Although closed for new patients in 1991, it still supplies 320-360 marijuana cigarettes monthly to each of the four seriously ill patients remaining in the program.
- According to FDA data obtained by our filing of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, marijuana was not reported as a primary cause of death at all between Jan. 1, 1997 to June 30, 2005 (the time for which the data were available).
- The US Department of Justice, in an Oct. 19, 2009 memo, advised federal prosecutors not to target medical marijuana patients whose actions are in compliance with the law in states that have legalized medical marijuana.
- Marijuana contains over 400 different identifiable chemical constituents, including steroids and Vitamin A.
- The British Lung Foundation reported in Nov. 2002 that 3-4 marijuana cigarettes a day are as dangerous to the lungs as 20 or more tobacco cigarettes a day.
- A UCLA study presented on May 24, 2006 found no association between marijuana and lung cancer, and it suggested that marijuana may even have “some protective effect.”
- Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrative Law Judge Mary Ellen Bittner ruled on Feb. 12, 2007 that “there is currently an inadequate supply of marijuana available for research purposes.”
- The 1999 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, commissioned by the US government, recommended that under certain narrow conditions marijuana should be medically available to some patients, even though “numerous studies suggest that marijuana smoke is an important risk factor in the development of respiratory disease.”
Major Components of Cannabis
- Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC) – It is the main psychoactive component of cannabis with mild to moderate painkilling effects. It also helps treat nausea associate with cancer chemotherapy and to stimulate appetite. It induces feelings of euphoria. Potential side effects include accelerated heartbeat, panic, confusion, anxiety and possible paranoia.
- Cannabidiol (CBD) – It is a major, non-psychoactive component of cannabis that helps shrink inflammation and reduce pain without inducing the euphoria effects of THC. It has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, psychotic disorders and epilepsy. Larger amounts of CBD can relax the mind and body without causing negative side effects associated with THC.
- Cannabinol (CBN) – It is a secondary psychoactive component of cannabis. It is not associated with painkilling effects of THC or CBD. CBN is formed as THC ages. Unlike the euphoria effects of THC, CBN can induce headaches and a sense of lethargy.
- Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) – It is found primarily in strains of African and Asian cannabis. THCV heightens the intensity of THC effects and the speed in which the component is delivered, but also causes the sense of euphoria to end sooner.
Making Brownies at home with all of the normal items in your kitchen!!!!!!!!!
For brownies everyone suggests a different amount of marijuana to use but I think that really just depends on the quality of the meds; I prefer to use very potent meds and some people have left over trimmings or some are using mid-grade meds.
If you are going to use really potent marijuana be sure to a half ounce of your best and a full ounce if it is of trimmings and leaf or of a lower quality than what we would consider to be medical grade.
Always have a really clean grinder to grind up the meds as much as possible into a very fine almost powdery-like texture.
Grab your wooden spoon and spread the marijuana into your 12 inch frying pan. Try to match your pan size to the size of whatever burner your stove has; that way it is cooked evenly throughout. In regards to how much oil, be sure to just follow what the recipe asks for. Take that oil and pour it onto your powdery meds. Use a medium setting to get it to simmer; once it begins to simmer lower the burner to the lowest setting and leave it there for 2-6 hours- most patients do 2 hours first time around due to lack of patience… if you go a little longer, even just to 3-4 hours- I do believe the results are slightly more potent. Be sure to stir every 30-45 minutes!!!!!!
When it is done cooking you must now strain it through your coffee filter or a thin pasta strainerto remove any excess
Once done straining you will have a medium to dark brown color oil and it should have no plant matter in it.
(The reason we filtered out plant matter was because there is no THC left ; it was extracted into the oil during the cooking process.)
Bake and Enjoy!!!
I have been getting my
Nails done for about 15 years. I am definitely a fanatic for colors and different designs that express
My personality and fit my lifestyle.
I saw a girl with a set similar to what I have (below) at kushexpo a couple of years back; I always wanted to do it , just finally got around to finding the decals and whatnot! So happy with how it came out.. Although, the girl who does my nails was mad that I wanted to get a fill and have all my nails be white- almost offended!! So random! Anyway.. Hope you like!
