  1. The Daily Mail and Guardian lost their shit over weed stories this week. If cannabis was legalised we wouldn’t see the same news. The answer to increased cannabis psychosis rates is to legalise. The best weed doesn't get you crazy stoned - let's get some good legal stuff on sale. Read more at: https://feed-the-birds.com/news/legalise-weed-reduce-psychosis-rates/
  2. Interesting. There’s me totally convinced by the daily fail that super strength killer skunk was responsible for all our fucked up teenagers. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/psychosis-air-pollution-paranoia-teenager-mental-health-diesel-a8842106.html

  4. Worth a read, taken from the British medical journal.... psychosis, adversity, trauma, meta-analysis, abuse, neglect Topic: child psychotic disorders wounds and injuries bullying death of parent Issue Section: Research article Introduction Adverse childhood events including trauma is a common experience worldwide, with some estimates suggesting that about a third of the general population may be affected.1 Evidence suggests that its effects in adulthood may include a range of negative social outcomes, including higher criminality,2 a lower educational level3 and lower general health and well-being. Adverse childhood events have also been related to a greater risk of psychiatric disorder1,4,5 and, especially given its high prevalence, it is likely that it is an important determinant of mental ill-health.6 A growing number of methodologically sound studies have examined child maltreatment (eg, sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional/psychological abuse and neglect), peer victimization (eg, bullying), and experiences of parental loss and separation as risk factors for psychosis and schizophrenia. Nevertheless, the association between adverse childhood events and psychosis has been a topic of enduring controversy. Only narrative reviews have so far attempted to synthesize these findings, with inconsistent conclusions.7–9 Therefore, a systematic quantitative synthesis of the existing data is required. The present study presents a quantitative review and meta-analysis of the available empirical literature, examining the magnitude and consistency of the effects of different, widely-examined types of adversity and trauma observed in: (i) prospective cohort studies, (ii) large population-based cross-sectional studies, and (iii) case-control studies. Methods Search Strategy We followed the Meta-analysis of Observational Studies in Epidemiology guidelines (see supplementary table S1).10 Search terms regarding exposure to adversity were chosen based on the most widely studied types of traumatic experiences in the psychosis literature and represented overall exposure, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, physical and emotional neglect, bullying, and parental death. A systematic database search from 1906 up to 2011 was performed on PsychINFO, PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science using the following search themes: (“child abuse”; “physical abuse”; “sexual abuse”; “psychological abuse”; “emotional abuse”; neglect*; trauma*; advers*; maltreat*; bully*; bullied; victim*; “expressed emotion”; “communication deviance”; “parental loss”; separate*; discrimination) combined with psychosis-related search terms (ie, psychosis; psychoti*; schizo*; hallucinat*; delusion*; paranoi*) using the Boolean operator “and.” Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) were used to further expand the results of the database search, to identify all relevant studies (table 1and supplementary table S2). The present analysis focused exclusively on childhood trauma (defined as sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional/psychological abuse, neglect, parental death, and bullying). Other psychosocial adversities included in the original search (parental communication deviance, expressed emotion and discrimination) were not eligible for the present analysis.

  16. Evening folks, has anyone done the psychosis bx2 from kg beans ? Thinking about ordering some from there site but can't find much info about them. I did read the kg beans journal but that's about all I could find. Is kg still about round here? Thanks
  17. Ok so yesterday I hit a problem. My cuttings started to claw I'll give youse a quick bit on info so you can help diagnose. I was given 5 cuttings under the promise they were rooted. So they've been sitting on my windowsill ( lack of equipment). I don't know what soil they were in, but yesterday I covered the top layer with bio bizz soil just to cover the little bits of the jiffy that were exposed. After that I watered them. However they are in my kitchen, and yesterday I was cooking dinner and went back into my kitchen to notice how sweltering the heat was in there. So I opened the windows and put on my extractor fan ( weak kitchen one). But by that time they had started to claw up like a nitrogen toxicity. They're looking less clawed this morning but are still clawed and a couple of the other leaves have started to claw. Sorry about the poor quality pictures it's because I had to reduce the size of them to post them...
  18. Hi guys, im new round here and need some advice. Ive just been given 5 Psychosis Cuttings from a friend. Ive currently got them on my windowsill just because I haven't got a propagator or my light/tent setup yet. I think that all 5 have rooted, so what's my next plan of action? I know they need to go into bigger pots soon, but I was going to wait until I could see visible roots through the drainage holes. Furthermore how often should I water? Just when It seems dry? Thanks in advance

  21. A controlled family study of cannabis users with and without psychosis. Proal AC, Fleming J, Galvez-Buccollini JA, Delisi LE. SourceHarvard Medical School, 25 Shattuck St, Boston, MA 02115, United States. Abstract BACKGROUND:Cannabis is one of the most highly abused illicit drugs in the world. Several studies suggest a link between adolescent cannabis use and schizophrenia. An understanding of this link would have significant implications for legalization of cannabis and its medicinal value. The present study aims to determine whether familial morbid risk for schizophrenia is the crucial factor that underlies the association of adolescent cannabis use with the development of schizophrenia. METHODS:Consecutively obtained probands were recruited into four samples: sample 1: 87 non-psychotic controls with no drug use; sample 2: 84 non-psychotic controls with cannabis use; sample 3: 32 patients with a schizophrenia spectrum psychosis with no drug use; sample 4: 76 patients with schizophrenia spectrum psychosis with cannabis use. All cannabis using subjects used this drug during adolescence, and no other substance, with the exception of alcohol. Structured interviews of probands and family informants were used to obtain diagnostic information about probands and all their known relatives. RESULTS:There was an increased morbid risk for schizophrenia in relatives of the cannabis using and non-using patient samples compared with their respective non-psychotic control samples (p=.002, p<.001 respectively). There was no significant difference in morbid risk for schizophrenia between relatives of the patients who use or do not use cannabis (p=.43). CONCLUSIONS:The results of the current study suggest that having an increased familial morbid risk for schizophrenia may be the underlying basis for schizophrenia in cannabis users and not cannabis use by itself.

  22. I know this has been covered before on the origin and parents of cheese and psychosis but I hear of a few more crosses made in the exodus rooms back in the late eighties early nineties (nelly), (nl x haze) , (nl x cheese)(possibly blues/livers)(stilton cheese) (blue cheese) etc and I would like to get to the bottom of just how many of these amazing strains/cuts there are or whether in fact some are indeed the same cut which have adapted differently to environments,growing practices etc some sort of genetic dna test would probably do the trick now I was on the understanding that a fellow known as wing commander blue was the man responsible for the planting and mothering of the original cheese seed plant and the reason he named it this was because the stench of it reminded him of a smell of blue stilton cheese he was working with in a food processing factory at the time.this man wrote an article in a ww magazine I read a long time back to try and clear up some of the mystery and confusion around the cheese in this article it was said (if I remember correctly) that cheese was from a pack of sensi seeds skunk no1 seeds planted in 1988 by himself and a few friends (exodus rooms related not sure)?now when big buddah was writing for red eye and he decided to make cheese available in seed form it was said that he obtained the cut from friends of the red eye mag in batley (if I remember correctly?). after this I heard/read this was not the real deal cut (again not sure?) as there was so many others. now psychosis is in my opinion closer to some of the phenos ive found in bbc seeds from the cannabis cup last year(2012)so could it be that psychosis is in fact the cut used by big buddah ? who knows ?(again this is just a thought not a fact) it is said by some that psychosis is an exodus cut of northern lights 5 x haze from sensi seeds perhaps but wheres the haze not in the flavour or smell in my opinion perhaps in the high yes and it definatly is quite sativa dominant but then so is the cheese in my opinion. I also have heard/read that psychosis is a northern lights x cheese hybrid now this makes more sense to me as it is so similar to the cheese in growth pattern, bud structure, smell, flavour, and perhaps the high ? again this is only my opinion many people may say psychosis is cheese x afghan but is northern lights not ov afghan origin anyhow ? then I hear theres blues thrown in the mix to add to the confusion however this to me also makes sense as im sure there is a bit of a berry hint behind the sharpness of the northern lights and the cheese smell/taste (again my opinion) but doesn't the original blues cut come from Liverpool hence also having the name livers and not the exodus rooms where I believed were on the haz manor estate in luton again only going on what ive read and heard etc. now reading more on here about the psychosis and cheese trying to make head or tail of it for myself a strain called nelly is mentioned quite often (is this an exodus cut?)if so what is the origin of this strain seed company etc ? what are the parents ? was it a cross made by the exodus lot or a cut or seeds given to them made by someone else ? then the blues/livers cut ? is this an exodus cut or from Liverpool. nl x cheese (which I believe to be the psychosis)as it smells like northern lights to me till about 5 week flowering then week six comes and bang the cheese smell kicks in strong and gets stronger and stronger as the peak approaches.(my opinion) stilton cheese I hear of next ? perhaps the original cheese after the man saying the stilton at work ? or separate cut ? the same for an exodus blue cheese I read of and again is it maybe the man saying blue stilton cheese is why his strain was named cheese and people got confused as cuts were passed further and further away from luton? or is there in fact an exodus blue cheese aswell as all the rest if anyone has the truth rather than aww my mate knows a guy who knows a guy who spoke to a cat who spoke to a dog and he says then it would be great to get all this confusion cleared up and im sure many would agree what would be good here is if sir wing commander blue himself could come along and clear all this up with him been the man in the know now I know someone on here knows this guy so come on now lets be having you please p.s the reason theres so many in my opinion and just a thoughts and if I remember correctly's in brackets is I don't want executing for saying the wrong thing any help here is greatly appreciated many thanks kushalicious
