What cannabis actually does to your brain

What cannabis actually does to your brain
Like with all herbal remedies, they are just as serious as man-made meds but weed won't put a rational person in a psych ward. Yes, it can. I've seen it happen. There's also this episode of The Nature of Things (a Canadian science documentary program) that talks about it: [] [] Apparently there's a genetic marker that can cause an otherwise healthy, if sensitive person, to undergo a psychotic break with the overuse of marijuana. Ok, out of the millions upon millions of people who have used marijuana, how many do you know in a psych ward? If you are referring to folks who overuse, like alcoholics, drug addicts, quadruple espresso drinkers, pack of smokes a day smokers, or 10 hr internet surfers, then you are referring to individuals with problems....not a problematic substance. I agree genetically altering marijuana to be over stuffed with THC is bad, but a natural, untampered plant with it's original levels of THC is fine. I just ask, please stop blaming the marijuana.

How to Make a Simple Herbal Extract « Home Remedies How to Make a Simple Herbal Extract Hello there, people. Today, I am going to show you how to extract the essence from a useful plant, using either alcohol or olive oil. For those of you who know nothing about herbal medicine, let me explain it for you in a nutshell... Every plant has certain medicinal uses, if they are not poisonous, and so all you really have to do is find the right plant, and either ingest it, make a tea from it, or render it into a paste and put it on the afflicted area. That is basically it. The key that most people miss, however, is in knowing how to identify and find the right plants for the right purposes. Herbal medicine is, of course, the oldest form of medicine, and it is still one of the best. Which brings up the question...why not just use the herb itself in its natural form, instead of making an extract? The answer is that you can certainly do that if you want to, and if you are able. You are concentrating the medicine and thus, making it stronger. See Also

Evangelizing Cannabis: Praise the Lord and Pass the Pipe [All photos by Sharon Letts] The past few months I’ve covered thousands of miles in a state of Divine Intervention, with people suffering from real illness put in front of me like little animals to St. Francis of Assisi. I see Patients, I see Patients all the time. When I tell people Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, made my breast cancer disappear, most don’t believe it. But, when sitting on this kind of knowledge it becomes a responsibility to share. I sometimes feel like Theresa Caputo, “The Long Island Medium,” less the hair and nails. Buddy, Can you Spare a Pill? My story is not a new one. As my good friend Cynthia Johnston says, “Cannabis is my spa treatment.” Physician, Heal Thyself Recently I was traveling with lower back pain and severe spasms in my sciatica. She couldn’t have talked about this good medicine if she wanted to. My heart sank, but I shared what I could. A lot of information can make you sound like a conspiracy theorist, but you will make friends in the process. These are mine:

Using Everclear To Make Rick Simpson's Oil Hi, everyone, I'm new to this forum but I'm not new to herbal medicine. I have a degree in Botanical Medicine and a Masters in Herbal Medicine. I've made tons of extracts, tinctures, salves, oils, etc. for over 25 years. I stayed away from Cannabis only because I had two negative experiences with it when I was younger. But when I started to research it again for pain management for a patient of mine, I was impressed by the huge amount of data that had been released over the last 10 years. I had a big problem with the way Rick processed the oil with Naphtha. I prefer to call this oil SIMPSON'S OIL instead of Hemp Oil because I want to give credit to the man who created it and also I think hemp oil is misleading because people who are new to this think we are talking about hemp SEED oil. I have lots of photos but I'm not sure how to download them in small sizes. I started with 2 oz. of bud material from the Blueberry strain. P5290251.JPG 1.32MB 52 downloads

Smoking - BHO (butane extraction hash oil) Quote: To be factual, 'budder' is the term given to the honey oil extraction performed with buds only, hence 'budder'. Whipping the oil mixture from leaf or bud is sound sense as it purges the mixture of the remaining butane and moisture that forms in there. Storing the gooey mess would not make it stronger than one that was whipped and purged of butane and moisture. Also, when the oil becomes a solid, it gets a protective layer forming which acts as a natural 'seal' of sorts, trapping the THC within. For many Swims who might know someone who makes this oil, its likely small amounts are made by eager beavers who want to use right away. If you actually do the extraction this way the butane will likely be mostly evaporated in a few minutes. After whipping for a good five mins, you see the oil turn to a rich golden syrup or toffee like texture and colour.

Abiotic stress: Non-living environmental factors such as frost, drought, excessive heat, etc. that can have harmful effects on plants. Abscisic acid mediates stress tolerance responses in higher plants, is a key signal compound that regulates stomatal aperture and, in concert with other plant signaling compounds, is implicated in mediating responses to pathogens and wounding. In seeds, ABA promotes seed development, embryo maturation, synthesis of storage products (proteins and lipids), desiccation tolerance, is involved in maintenance of dormancy (inhibition of germination), and apoptosis.

Decarboxylating Cannabis 'bigpappa', on 07 Oct 2011 - 5:29 PM, said: oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy, i finally did it!!!!! i made my first successful batch of medicated coconut oil using our friend's instructions. But i didn't put any oil in there because i never saw the above post. =) Can i add it later? yes you can add to the point of saturation. the concoctions we, the skunk pharm, are making, are supersaturates and a little touchier, but simple, to do. but that is not what you are doing here. this is very easy. most cooked oils are much weaker. you can titrate (take small and increasing amounts) to find your dose of the cooked oil you have made so that you do not overdose yourself. from there you can determine how much hash oil to add. do tell us what you made and how it worked out, BP!
