THC and CBD | Cannabis Effects THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical in cannabis that makes you stoned. There can be a huge difference in the amount of THC in the cannabis you buy, sometimes it will be hardly anything, and other times it can go up to 40%. When THC enters your brain it has many effects – it can make you happy, relaxed and giggly. It can also make you feel stressed, paranoid, forgetful and sometimes make you see things that aren’t there. It can also make your heart beat faster and give you red eyes, because it makes your blood vessels open. It can give you a dry mouth and the 'munchies' as well. CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most common chemical in the cannabis plant after THC.
The myth of the Islamist winter In Tunisia, as in Egypt, the Islamists who came to power through the ballot box are seeing their popularity erode and are tempted to hold on to power by recourse to authoritarian measures. But they have to deal with the legacy of the Arab spring. They face a new political culture: now, one where people who disagree with the government take to the streets; where there is no reverence for established power and the army and the police no longer inspire fear. The Islamists are obliged to search for allies, as they control neither the army nor the religious sphere. It is interesting to consider the precise nature of this authoritarian turn because it bears little resemblance to the “Islamic revolution” often associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and al-Nahda, the Renaissance Party, in Tunisia. The electoral and social base of the Egyptian regime is not revolutionary. Morsi’s economic model is neoliberal: he is surrounded by “Chicago boys” who swear by the free market. Wider stage
EL MARIHUANO EN LA NARRATIVA MEXICANA DEL SIGLO XX Por Carlos Martínez Rentería No cabe duda que el personaje más simbólico del movimiento a favor de la despenalización de la marihuana en México, al menos durante los últimos 20 años, ha sido el activista Juan Pablo García Vallejo, quien inició sus andanzas culturales en la legendaria revista La Guillotina (1983). Fue precisamente en esa irreverente publicación en la que Juan Pablo dio a conocer su desmadrozo Manifiesto Pacheco y a partir de entonces no ha dejado de publicar decenas de artículos y varios libros independientes en torno al tema de la cultura de la marihuana y la pertinencia de su despenalización. Además de libros como La desconocida historia de la marihuana en México 1492-2010 y Manifiestos Cannábicos 1923-2011, Juan Pablo también es editor de la intermitente Gaceta cannábica (Publicación cultural sobre la planta amiga), cuya más reciente entrega es El marihuano en la narrativa mexicana del siglo XX (Eterno Femenino Ediciones, 2014). foto Neal Preston CORBIS Foto Milenio
The Future of DMT Research 8th March 2016 By Luke Sumpter Guest Writer for Wake Up World N-dimethlytryptamine, or DMT, is a psychedelic tryptamine that is structurally similar to serotonin. In 1990 Dr. The book raised just as many questions as it offered answers, antagonizing the philosophical and scientific arenas of human consciousness, perception and even dabbling in the realms of alien abduction and dark matter. I spoke to Dr. Luke Sumpter: Dr Strassman, you work at the University of New Mexico is the most detailed DMT research in existence. Dr. Positing a spectrum of inner/outer in this regard, one may be seeing only a reflection of one’s own mind-brain complex in the DMT visions at one end, and at the other, apprehending previously invisible but objectively real and freestanding alternate levels of reality. Luke Sumpter: Based upon these conclusions, how do you envision the future of DMT research? Dr. Luke Sumpter: Do you regard DMT might harbor a clinical and therapeutic potential?

Valium Is Killing Scotland's Drug-Taking Poor One filthy grey evening in February, I meet Jack and his friends in a dank bar near The Cowgate. Strewn with broken glass and smattered with the acrid remnants of stomach bile, red cabbage and whatever else made up that particular meal before it found its way on to the street, this delightful area of Edinburgh is known to locals as "The Street of Shame". That's maybe because, despite being very pleasant during the day, come evening it's flooded by hordes of lads on tour, bedraggled students in fancy dress and cackling hen parties, who swarm towards the cheap bars on this side of the city, leaving streams of vomit running in their wake. Jack begins by telling me about the evils of methadone and the legend of how it came to Britain, care of German chemists, American soldiers and Adolf Hitler himself. In the last days of the Second World War, Hitler relied on amphetamine to stay awake and, according to urban legend, then took methadone to help him sleep. Watch – Swansea Love Story
¿Por qué no hay narcos en Cuba? La política cubana de “Droga cero” se inserta en un modelo donde lo humano es primero. El narco es un fenómeno absoluto del sistema político y económico de un país. Quien diga que puede hacerse frente al tráfico de drogas y a su terrible entorno, sin revisar la manera en cómo se hace dinero y se organiza la sociedad en una nación, está mintiendo. En México, por ejemplo, la violencia del narco se disparó en la década de 1980 cuando el Estado abandonó sus funciones de protección social. En México el narco existe porque se abandonó el desarrollismo para dar paso al libre mercado; una tesis que propone dejar en manos de los capitales la regulación de la economía, pero también de las relaciones entre personas, basadas no en la solidaridad sino en la ganancia. Bajo esa estructura, es lógico que prolifere el narco pero también el secuestro, la piratería, la extorsión, la trata de personas. Lo contrario a todo eso es lo que ha convertido a Cuba en un país libre de narcotráfico.
Rivea Corymbosa Shamanic Extracts The sacred Aztec hallucinogen " Ololiuhqui " is perhaps the best kept secret for the outside world today, strange enough Ololiuhqui is widely used among the local Indians in Sierra Madre, Oaxacan Mexico. The local Mazatecas use the Rivea corybosa seeds for divination when the Teonanacatl Mushrooms are not available. Rivea corybosa grows easily and abundantly in the mountains of southern Mexico. Traditional uses : The seeds are used for their psychedelic purposes by the Aztec priests in order to commune with their gods. Hoffman reported in 1960 that he had isolated d-lysergic acid amide (LA) and d-isolysergic acid amide from the seeds of Rivea corymbosa and Ipomoea violacea. ref : Rivea corymbosa (L.)
The price of a drink: survey reveals cost of alcohol abuse | Society Glass darkly: nearly half of people surveyed said they knew someone with a drink problem. Photograph: Andy Rain/EPA The toll that alcohol takes on many people's lives is laid bare in a survey which has prompted fresh calls for action to tackle widespread chronic drinking across Britain. Alcohol's role in everything from injury and relationship breakdown to trouble with the police, emerges in a poll commissioned by a group of senior doctors. Some 11% of people polled have seen a friend or relative's relationship end as a direct result of heavy drinking. The survey also found that 14% of children are being brought up in a family where at least one adult has a drink problem. The YouGov poll, commissioned by the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG), paints a graphic picture of alcohol's many negative consequences. • 14% admit they have injured themselves while drunk; 2% have injured others. • 43% know at least one person with a drink problem, and 5% say they know more than five people.
