Muscle Tension and Cannabis

How did it get to this? A plant, not created by man, but the most condemned. By the way, it is not created by man, it grows by itself and like all living things, it has something to contribute. It is for man to decide if it is beneficial or not. There is no evidence that anyone ever died of an overdose, but it is still considered illegal in a great part of the world.

Now there is an interesting question that is at the moment scientifically hard to prove. It is more common knowledge that smoking pot increases appetite, hence the munchies where everything is craved.

Pharma Drugs and Cannabis

It seems that cannabis almost has to resurrect the dead before prohibitionists accept that it has medical benefit. Unlike pharma drugs, cannabis is expected to go through rigorous testing, studying and longevity research before prohibitionists accept it.

Modern Day Marijuana Reefer Madness

The dark ages of Reefer Madness leading up to the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, the original measure for outlawing the plant, only changed faces over the years but have remained a constant factor in the way the mainstream media presents information.

Why do you get hungry when you smoke pot and more importantly, why does it taste so damn good? Recent research has shed some light on this issue as they observed a cluster of neurons that might be responsible for this behavior. The POMC Neurons Within the hypothalamus is a cluster of neurons known as the POMC neurons. The POMC neurons tell the brain when you are full and to stop eating. When... Read more

Not enough Research on Marijuana – Blame the Government!

02-27-2015

Marijuana and the Lack of Research

Every now and then, we hear about prohibitionists claiming that we shouldn’t legalize cannabis because there is “too little research” on its long term effects. They say they want more research to be conducted however does not bar the Federal government from stalling cannabis research. In turn, they prolong prohibition and millions more wind up in jail over a plant. We have... Read more

Cannabis doesn’t increase likeliness to crash

For most of us, we have driven stoned. While mainstream media outlets like to talk about the dangers of “drugged driving”, it seems they have completely missed the mark on cannabis. It is still not recommended to drive under the influence as you can get a DUI and in turn can taint the good name of cannabis legalization. Nonetheless, the next time someone tries to tell you that pot... Read more

While there are plenty of studies that suggest that cannabis has neuro protective capabilities and actually stimulates neuro genesis, whenever a ‘study’ that finds the opposite is published, you’ll see it on every major publication in the world. In 2014, a study was plastered on all media... Read more
