  2. Cannabis reverses ageing processes in the brain Researchers at the University of Bonn restore the memory performance of Methuselah mice to a juvenile stage Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these ageing processes in the brain. This was shown in mice by scientists at the University of Bonn with their colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Old animals were able to regress to the state of two-month-old mice with a prolonged low-dose treatment with a cannabis active ingredient. This opens up new options, for instance, when it comes to treating dementia. The results are now presented in the journal Nature Medicine. Like any other organ, our brain ages. As a result, cognitive ability also decreases with increasing age. This can be noticed, for instance, in that it becomes more difficult to learn new things or devote attention to several things at the same time. This process is normal, but can also promote dementia. Researchers have long been looking for ways to slow down or even reverse this process. Scientists at the University of Bonn and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel) have now achieved this in mice. These animals have a relatively short life expectancy in nature and display pronounced cognitive deficits even at twelve months of age. The researchers administered a small quantity of THC, the active ingredient in the hemp plant (cannabis), to mice aged two, twelve and 18 months over a period of four weeks. Afterwards, they tested learning capacity and memory performance in the animals – including, for instance, orientation skills and the recognition of other mice. Mice who were only given a placebo displayed natural age-dependent learning and memory losses. In contrast, the cognitive functions of the animals treated with cannabis were just as good as the two-month-old control animals. “The treatment completely reversed the loss of performance in the old animals,” reported Prof. Andreas Zimmer from the Institute of Molecular Psychiatry at the University of Bonn and member of the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation. Years of meticulous research This treatment success is the result of years of meticulous research. First of all, the scientists discovered that the brain ages much faster when mice do not possess any functional receptors for THC. These cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors are proteins to which the substances dock and thus trigger a signal chain. CB1 is also the reason for the intoxicating effect of THC in cannabis products, such as hashish or marihuana, which accumulate at the receptor. THC imitates the effect of cannabinoids produced naturally in the body, which fulfil important functions in the brain. “With increasing age, the quantity of the cannabinoids naturally formed in the brain reduces,” says Prof. Zimmer. “When the activity of the cannabinoid system declines, we find rapid ageing in the brain.” To discover precisely what effect the THC treatment has in old mice, the researchers examined the brain tissue and gene activity of the treated mice. The findings were surprising: the molecular signature no longer corresponded to that of old animals, but was instead very similar to that of young animals. The number of links between the nerve cells in the brain also increased again, which is an important prerequisite for learning ability. “It looked as though the THC treatment turned back the molecular clock,” says Zimmer. Next step: clinical trial on humans A low dose of the administered THC was chosen so that there was no intoxicating effect in the mice. Cannabis products are already permitted as medications, for instance as pain relief. As a next step, the researchers want to conduct a clinical trial to investigate whether THC also reverses ageing processes in the brain in humans and can increase cognitive ability. The North Rhine-Westphalia science minister Svenja Schulze appeared thrilled by the study: “The promotion of knowledge-led research is indispensable, as it is the breeding ground for all matters relating to application. Although there is a long path from mice to humans, I feel extremely positive about the prospect that THC could be used to treat dementia, for instance.” Publication: A chronic low dose of delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) restores cognitive function in old mice, Nature Medicine, DOI: 10.1038/nm.4311 Media contact: Prof. Andreas Zimmer Institute of Molecular Psychiatry University of Bonn Tel. +49 (0)228/6885300 sauce THC good!
  3. Hi We have a new video on our Vimeo channel... Green Poison XL Auto®: We hope you enjoy it! jaypp
  4. Morning all, i always do greenhouse grows as i work away too much and an indoor grow is a no go. I normally grow autos as to be fair they need very little care although i tend to do 1 or 2 fems just see how they go. This year, as always, i have Sweet Seeds as i have yet to have a failed grow and have only ever lost 2 seeds due to not sprouting along with very uniform plants. This year i have 2 each of Mohan Ram, Black Cream, Blow Mind, Cream Mandarine, S.A.D. Will be 3 phased runs of this over the year with the last chop in September'ish weather dependent. On top of this i had a few freebies around so i thought why not use them up - 2 x G13 Auto Gigabub, 2 x THC Seeds Berry Bomb. All seeds were popped mid March and spent a few weeks under a cfl then popped in a warming house outdoor for a week to let them acclimatise to the colautos being uniform as alwayser temps, yes i know its early but i want a 3 phase planting so made an early start All look very healthy with the Sweet Seeds being like sets of twins other than the Blow Mind that look the complete opposite and to be fair i struggled with them last year too. The big surprise is thatthe GigaBud and the Berry Bomb are awesome looking, being bushier, taller and well into the fluffy top stage !! The SS have started but nowhere near as far on. The SS is generally the first to show and furthest on ! Very surprised. The Berry Bomb looks simply stunning yet its a breeder i generally wouldnt give a secong look, very happy and may do some more. My fems this year will be 2 x Samsara Holy Grail 69's and 2 x Delicious Seeds Sugar Black Rose fast version and finally 2 x Blimburn Grandaddy Purple. Having never done them and getting them as freebies i thought why not Hopefully it will be a decent year and be able to put some stock into the jars. Anyone having done any of the above mentioned outdoors please chime in with feedback Pics to follow. Thanks
  5. Hi everyone. I'm new here (Registered mainly for this specific post but after having browsed the site, I'll be sticking around) I'm about to start making THC Capsules (CannaCaps). I've had a bit of experience making a few homemade goodies before but these seem a bit more complicated to make (specifically with dosage). I have all the equipment needed for the process but I need some advice or clarification on how potent the caps may be. I've done a lot of research prior to this post but the conclusion is, unless you get the product lab tested, you'll never know for sure how much mg of THC is in a capsule. The weed I have supplied is said to contain roughly 15% THC per gram (Which is 150mg THC per gram) so once decarboxylated and added to either 1 or 2 teaspoons of extra virgin coconut oil and baked I'd roughly want to create 10 capsules which I estimated would have around 11-12mg of THC per capsule. Doe's this sound about right? I'm only an occasional weed user so I wouldn't want something that completely messes me up but people I'll be introducing to capsules are everyday smokers so I want something that'll give them a high also so it's finding the correct balance. I know these things are usually trial and error but hopefully someone on here can maybe cut out some of the errors and make it a smoother process. Cheers
  6. I've heard a couple of people claim that pollinating a single flower site on a female will globally increase it's resin production greatly.... Has anyone here done this to notable effect? interested in potentially taking this on as a breeding method....
  7. I don't need no thought control.......Sorry, got ahead of myself there. What if? If I'm just looking for the medicinal benefits and not really looking to get high, would I skip the decarboxolation step? I read that THCa has all the medicinal attributes of THC without the stony, but I'm not sure it's true. I need all the cannaboids, terpenes, all the factors that help with pain, but I need to function too. Thoughts? Respect.........As Always Cmoon

  9. The FDA Quietly Approved a Synthetic Form of Marijuana as Medicine Though FDA's stance on marijuana has remained notoriously under wraps, the government agency recently embraced the drug's main psychoactive ingredient. Last month, the agency approved Syndros, a synthetic form of THC, for treatment of ailments suffered by AIDS and Cancer patients. What is Syndros?Even though it's just now making headlines, Syndros is really nothing new, Motherboard reports; it's merely a liquid version of the drug Marinol, which was approved in 1985 as a synthetic cannabinoid pill, to treat the same conditions as Syndros. What are the advantages of Syndros over marijuana? Researchers have suggested that heavy marijuana use "could exacerbate the course of illness in patients who have schizophrenia," the New York Times reports. However as Paul Armentano, deputy director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, points out to ATTN:, "none of those warnings appear on the warnings of synthetic THC." What are the drawbacks of synthetic THC? The answer to this question boils down to the "entourage effect," as it's been dubbed. The botanical version of marijuana flaunts a number of positive side effects that are absent in its synthetic versions, which contain only THC. As Armentano explains, "Some of the plant's components are greater than the individual parts." Why does the FDA approve of synthetic THC but not marijuana? Armentano says it's rare for the FDA to approve or reject a botanical drug for therapeutic use, but not completely unheard of. He explains that it's not up to the FDA to reschedule or deschedule marijuana; that falls in the realm of the DEA. What the FDA does do is green-light clinical trials for drugs; however, the agency rarely receives applications for trials on marijuana. "There is no inducement for private pharmaceutical companies to invest hundreds of millions of dollars on a drug they would have no proprietary control over," he explains. They have no control over it because they can't legally grow it or market it because of its federal Schedule 1 status. Still, the FDA's current stance on marijuana is not one pro-marijuana crusaders would be happy with. Michael Felberbaum, press officer for the FDA, tells ATTN: via email: What do marijuana advocates think of synthetic THC?"The FDA has not approved any product containing or derived from botanical marijuana for any indication. ... the FDA has not found any such product to be safe or effective for the treatment of any disease or condition." Ultimately, groups like NORML simply want patients to have access to marijuana in whatever form best aligns with their medical needs. Armentano tells ATTN: "I think patients ought to have the legal option to choose which therapy is safest, most efficient, and most cost-effective for their particular needs. ... Patients should have access to a wide range of cannabis-specific products, including access to herbal cannabis." http://www.attn.com/stories/10340/fda-approves-thc-liquid-form
  10. Hello all! Just wondering if anybody here has had experience with the various test kits out there? Most of them rely on thin layer chromatography. Thanks
