Pot Not as Bad as Tobacco … Duh.

Nice to finally see in the news what pretty much every stoner has known at least as long as I’ve smoked pot. ABC News published an article today entitled “Marijuana Smoke Not As Damaging As Tobacco, Says Study.” Here are some excerpts from the article that I found interesting:

Occasionally puffing the magic dragon does not appear to have long-term adverse effects on lung function, according to new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Measuring participants’ lung function for air flow and lung volume five times throughout the study period, the researchers found that cigarette smokers saw lung function worsen throughout the 20-year period, but marijuana smokers did not. Only the heaviest pot smokers (more than 20 joints per month) showed decreased lung function throughout the study.

…researchers actually saw a slight increase in lung function among marijuana users…

While an adult male blows out about 4 liters of air in one second, those who occasionally smoked weed could blow out those 4 liters, plus another 50 milliliters…

“I think what is most striking about the results is that we are so accustomed to studies emphasizing, and sometimes exaggerating, how dangerous marijuana is for users’ health,” said MacCoun. “So this study is a cautionary note that we still have a lot to learn about this complex psychoactive plant.”

Yes, please continue to learn about it! The more the medical industry and the government learn about marijuana…THE TRUTH, NOT THE USUAL SKEWED STATISTICS…the closer we come to legalization.

Best Weed in the World?

I was watching this interview, in which members of Cypress Hill discuss their influences, President Obama and where is the hardest place to get good weed. Evidently, it’s really hard to get good weed in Prague. This made me wonder, where are the BEST places to get good weed? Let’s Google it!

Ok, first thing I found was this: 10 Best Ways to Smoke Your Weed. Nothing to do with the search, but interesting.

Another completely off-topic, but VERY INTERESTING…How to Buy Weed Online…points out that, while many states have laws against the purchase of marijuana, they generally don’t have laws against purchasing hybrids. Check it out!

OK, here is what I was looking for. The Best Weed in the World!

Cannabutter

If you have ever tried edibles, you may be familiar with the use of weed butter. If not, check this out. Edibles give you a wonderful, all-body high. However, adding straight weed to, say, brownies can give the edible a grainy, fibrous texture. Creating edibles with weed butter solves this problem. Plus, you can just keep a supply around and spread it on toast if you want ­čÖé

How to Make Kief

Making Kief with a 4pc. grinder

Kief or keef, sometimes kef or kif…refers to the resin glands (or trichomes) of cannabis which may accumulate in containers or be sifted from loose dry cannabis buds with a mesh screen or sieve. Kief contains a much higher concentration of desired psychoactive cannabinoids, such as THC, than other preparations of cannabis buds from which it is derived. Traditionally kief has been pressed and baked into cakes as hashish for convenience in storage and shipping, but can be vaporized or smoked in its powder form. Wikipedia definition of Kief

Marijuana Farmer Discloses Patch

This one kinda cracks me up. This is a newspaper article from 1951. He “went on the weed” as a GI in Europe, and “He returned to Pittsburgh, planted three patches of marijuana, and has manufactured reefers ever since.”
