Lab Testing Cannabis


So, you got a fat sack from your friend, do you have any idea what’s in there besides those choice nugs?

Did you know there’s a huge chance that it’s got a fair share of mold spores, fungicide residue and most likely some pesticide. The kind of thing a lab can test for, and prevent you from getting sick from the use of it.

Sad, but it’s true. Since California passed it’s ‘legalization’ law last year, many dispensaries and manufacturers of cannabis products have begun testing their cannabis. Some have in fact quietly pulled product from… Continue reading

Cannabis Revitalizes Brain in Older Mice

A new scientific study on the effects of cannabis on mice of varying ages showed that mature and older mice exhibited vastly improved memory and cognitive abilities when given a daily dose of cannabis extract.  The change was so drastic, the older mice performed as well as drug-free young mice in memory tests.

Unexpectedly, younger mice who were given the same dose, performed worse on the same tests than the older mice who were given cannabis.

“These results reveal a profound, long-lasting improvement of cognitive performance resulting from a low dose of THC treatment in mature and old animals,” the scientists write. The boost in brain function was linked to an apparent restoration of gene expression in the brain to more youthful levels.

Tubingen, Germany: The administration of FDA-approved synthetic THC (dronabinol) induces death in leukemia cell lines and offers a “low-toxic therapy option” for patients with cancer, according to findings published online in the journal BMC Cancer.

German researchers evaluated the impact of dronabinol on leukemia cells. Investigators reported that synthetic THC displayed “remarkable anti-proliferative as well as pro-apoptopic efficacy … in a broad spectrum of acute leukemia cell lines.” These findings “provide a promising rationale for the clinical use of cannabinoids … in distinct entities of acute leukemia,” they concluded.

Preclinical data dating back over four decades has consistently documented the… Continue reading
