Cannabis

Cannabis has been a part of human civilization for as long as writing has, and archaeology has proven that it has actually been with us longer than that. The Ancient god Shiva represents Marijuana, and it's presence in society, and Shiva can be traced back to ”Pashupati”, the god of the very first human civilization in the Indus Valley. And they have found hemp and Amanita Muscaria mushroom cigars in cavemen grave yards.

  • Sativa

The word “Sativa” literally means “To Cultivate”, and considering Cannabis' close relation to human society, I believe it may have been the first ever purposely cultivated plant. For it's fibers which can be used to make basically anything (we would not have made it to America in the 1600's without hemp rope and sails), and its seeds, which are considered a “super food” because of their nutritious value.

  • Indica

The word “Indica” translates to “From India”, and it was believed by traders in the past that these strains were developed in India, by the worshipers of Shiva.

Marijuana/Cannabis

Early in the 1900's Marijuana was 100% legal, and it was either known as “Cannabis”, or “Hemp” to most people in America, if they even knew about it at all. It was really just known about in the Sticks, and it was just commonly known about as a weed, like “Jimsonweed” is today. The only people that may have referred to it as “Marijuana” are people in the very southern parts of states such as Texas, New Mexico, California, and any other state that used to be part of Mexico, and of course it was known as Marijuana in Mexico. At this time there was some scientific breakthroughs with Marijuana, and it was about to take over the paper industry. The big paper companies didn't want that, and one man began using his multiple News presses to begin printing stories about people smoking a new drug called “Marijuana”, and it was described as much much more terrible for society than it actually is. They wanted people to really hate it, and most Americans at that time didn't care for Mexican immigrants, and did not like that they were bringing their drug “Marijuana” into our country. Giving “Cannabis/Hemp” that Mexican twist, made it possible for them to make it the way it is today. But the people of America didn't know they were talking about Hemp, they didn't know it was hemp that was going to be made illegal.

Chemistry

The family of alkaloids that can be found in Cannabis that are known to get you 'high' are called Cannabinoids. Not all Cannabinoids get you high, and not all cannabinoids can be found in every strain of Marijuana. The most active and common cannabinoid in Cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydracannabinol. There are other active cannabinoids, including: THCv, THCa, CBD, CBN and many more.

Some people believe that the Marijuana plant has developed THC to keep water away from its flowers, so that mold can not kill the part of the plant that makes the seeds, so it is thought to be a defense mechanism against water, that just so happens to effects humans the way it does.

Maybe that's why it's there, maybe that's how it got there in the first place. But it has been with us for a long time, and I think that there is another reason it is here now. It knows that we enjoy being high, it understands that we will plant its seed, protect it, and harvest it, if it produces a strong chemical signal through cannabinoids. I think it feels like it needs us to survive since we have taken over the planet, and more-so now since half of the humans love the plant, while half of the humans hunt it, as if it has done some terrible crime against humanity. (Less than half hunt, and over half smoke in the world. But somehow the hunters still get their way)

I think the Marijuana plant contains THC, at least partially, because it wants to survive and it wants us to love it so that it can. There are plants that have developed to be poison to humanity and that poison says “GO AWAY!”. But Marijuana says something completely different.

Should we Allow Male Marijuana Plants in Nature?

  • Yes,

We should allow plants to do whatever they want in nature, so they can spread rapidly, and be abundant naturally.

Some people complain that their outdoor grows get pollinated by nearby male plants that must be somewhere. But there is no reason to complain about this, Bees carry pollen, the wind carries pollen. Male pollen, is meant to make it to the female flower.

If we try to take the male plants out of nature, then it wont spread naturally. It will stay only where humans grow it, or clone it to. Future generations may only have indoor plants to smoke, and it may end up being gone from nature. If you don't want to deal with nature, don't grow in it.

And if you get seeds, Plant them. Even if you can't take care of them. Try to find a nice place with a sprinkler, or creek, or anything. If 25% of people that came across seeds planted them, it could change the country.

  • Some people don't know that half of Marijuana plants don't grow buds.

The male Marijuana plants grow 0 buds. They just grow pollen sacks, they could still be made into a small amount of hash, but a male Marijuana plant will produce no buds, and very little Cannabinoids. Some people may be thinking “Why grow males?” and most people don't. If you are growing indoors, and your goal is to make some dank “Dro/Sensimilla” or “Seedless” buds, then you'll want to chop out any males (George Washington has diaries describing having done this…Now…why did we decide to killing males was a good idea a second ago? What must George have been doing?) So most people would rather kill all males, and not have to deal with the males producing pollen, and making the females grow seeds. And so that they can get plants with buds. But some people like to breed. So their is a VERY important purpose for the males. Once you have a female you like, you pick a male plant that is similar to the traits you desire (Ex:Lots of haits, Trichombs, and Resin. Purple buds, or a certain high) and grow them together, with a fan or with your hand moving the pollen from male to female. Her buds will fill with seeds, and you will have a new strain of weed if you mix two kinds that have never been mixed before. Now doing all of this successfully involves knowing a little about phenotypes and breeding. There will be posts on those also.

Growing

  • Best Lights to Grow with

The 2 most bad ass lights available. 1 for veg, 1 for flower. Are “Metal Halide”, and “High Pressure Sodium” (HPS).

You want at least 100W per plant, but more is suggested. You might also want to get a “large” (200-400W) florescent fixture to reach your bottom branches, because with these lights your top canopy with be so full, that it will block out a lot of light, so that the bottom gets very little, to none.

Now if you have like 5-6 plants, and 400W of HPS/Metal Halide, you'll get a nice harvest, and pretty buds. But all at the top. If you plan to grow a normal medical grow of 5-6 plants, and expect them ALL to have even flowering from top to bottom, you're going to need a lot of Mylar, and maybe 1000W or more (the “more” can be CFL, or FL) of light.

Use the Metal halide for veg, and either have it on for 18 hours light, 6 hours dark (18/6) or 24 hours light, 0 hours dark (24/0).

Then when you're ready for flowering (It's up to you, how big do you want your plant? Vegging determines that) switch to HPS, and 12hours of light, 12 hours of dark. (12/12). Do this for 60-80 days depending on strain, or if you can tell, just whenever it looks ready.

And those are the 2 best lights for growing :D

Remember, you WILL need good fans you cool these lights. They get HOT!! And don't touch the bulbs with your fingers, just like a photography bulb, the heat of the light can boil the oil from the skin, and shatter the glass of the bulb.

  • Growing with CFL's

CFL's (Compact Fluorescent Lights, (The curly light bulbs)) are not the best thing to use to grow, but they are the easiest, and by far the cheapest way to go. And they will get the job done, some people get some awesome buds from a good number of CFL's.

The first cycle of growing, it is called the “Vegging” cycle. For Vegging you want to imitate noon. The best CFL light spectrum for this is 6000k. It will be on the package of lights, and these are best for the most growth, in the shortest amount of time. You should have at least 100Watts on each plant, but I suggest more. And when Vegging you can either do a 18/6 Light Cycle or 24/0 Light Cycle. Which means 18 hours of light, 6 hours of dark. Or 24 hours of light, 0 hours of dark. People say that a plant cannot absorb more than 18 hours of light a day, but 24/0 never hurts.

The second cycle is known as “Flowering”. For Flowering you want to imitate morning, or evening. The best CFL lught spectrum for this is 2700k. Look for it on the back, it will be printed as “2700k” probably with nothing labeling what that means. But these are the best for getting good buds, and not just leafy, loose buds… Again, you should have at least 100Watts on each plant, but to start with 100Watts in veg, and move up to say 150-200W will make your plant VERY happy :D The light cycle you want to use for flowering is 12 hours light, 12 hours dark, or 12/12. This should be done for about 50-80 days depending on your strain.

For best results use 200-400W CFL per plant. For BEST BEST results, spend all your money, and energy on 1 plant. Without the hassle of sharing with other plants, it can grow to be huge in height, bud mass, and bud quantity. Just get or make a HUGE container for it to grow in. Most strains (online) claim to yield about a pound if you give them 1Square Meter to grow in. And if you're a new grower, it would also be easier to manage that way.

  • Mother Plant

When people say that they have a “Mother plant” in their grow/grow room, they are referring to a large female plant that is in a constant state of vegetation. What is special about it is, usually you pick your favorite plant, from your favorite strain to be you mother plant (once you have seen how fast/tall it grows, or if you've seen it's mother grow), and you make a clone. That clone will be the mother plant, and all your other plants can go into flower, get harvested and be gone.

But what the mother plant allows you to do, is make clones of not just any plant, but your favorite plant. And a guaranteed female, since you cloned it. You just keep the “Mother plant” in veg, and clone it whenever you want. (I'll make a thread on cloning next grow I visit, or of my own, I need pictures or video for that). Mother plants can get very big, and you might even want to just keep a mother plant through 2 or 3 grows, then make a new one, and see what she flowers into after all that veg time :D If you give her a big enough bucket, it'll be something beautiful, and huge

  • Germination

Once a seed is fertilized by it's mother and father it is still not ready to grow. It still has to “Germinate”, this means that it needs water. Before water soaks into the seed it is basically nothing more than a rock (with DNA and stuff in it) before the water enters it, but as soon as the water enters and “germination” starts, the seed is now a plant. It starts growing its root, then releases it's first leaves from the seed, and has begun life

  • Hydroponic

Hydroponic means “Working Water”, to put it simply: Growing IN water. No soil, the nutrients go directly into the water.

There are ups and downs to a Hydro system. Space is a bonus Easier to tell when to water You can directly decide how much nutrients your plants get Less chance of fungus, since water moves.

But… It's expensive Plants are easier to kill in water, if you don't know what your doing And you HAVE to know what your doing, nute levels and everything, are critical in a hydro grow. The water is much less forgiving to the MJ plant than soil is

  • Outdoor

Outdoor growing starts in the Spring. If you're growing indoors, there is no limit to when you can grow, and how long you can Veg or Flower your plants. But outdoors, you must be in the correct season. And the seasons only last a certain amount of time. The big plus with growing outside though is the light. You don't have to pay for it, and there's enough there for any number of plants, to be as beautiful as they can. February, March, and April are your key planting seasons. You don't want to try much later than this because: 1.The plant won't have much time to grow before it starts flowering 2.Won't have much time before summer comes, and in some states, the sun isn't nice to tiny baby plants

So those are your key months for planting, and harvest will be between late August, and early November depending on the strain of weed you have. And, Outdoors plants are said to yield between 1-2lbs/SquareMeter.

  • Watering

When should you water your plant?

The key to watering well, is knowing your soil. Check it once a day, or at least every few days. Just touch the tips of your fingers to the top of the soil, and press firmly. If the soil seems to be damp AT ALL, like any wet squishiness in there at all, even if it's layers of dry dirt beneath your finger. If you can feel that water, you don't need to water any more. But if it feels dry. Like if the phrase “Dry as a bone” could be used. THAT is the time to water. Now some people like to call watering like this “Making it rain” because after letting your soil dry, and watering it, the plant shoots up in growth that day. As if getting rained on after a dry spell. But this shouldn't be referred to as “Making it rain”, it should be called “Watering properly”. Because if you are watering before your soil is dry, you are risking fungus. And no one wants mold or anything like that in their grow. It can stunt growth, turn a plant nasty colors, effect THC content, gender, or yeild, and may kill the plant.

So water when your soil is dry, that is your plant saying it is thirsty. Just don't drown (Over-water to the point of fungus) your girls

  • Harvesting

The best way to tell when it is time to harvest is to buy a “scope”, they run kind of expensive, but are the only true way to tell that your THC is at the right point. About 20% of your trichombs will turn from their Milky white color, to an Amber color. This is when you should harvest, because it means that a good portion of the THC has become Delta-9-THC, and the rest of the work can be done during the curing process.

Now if you don't have a scope all I can say is, give your plant at least 60 days. And do it when you think it's right. That's all there is, unless you can post pictures here to ask, or get a family member or something that really knows what growing bud looks like, to look for you.

The Difference Between Indica and Sativa

There are actually 3 species of Marijuana. But right now I'll just be talking about the 2 kinds for smoking. Indica, and Sativa. The third is Rudaralis, but that's for hemp fiber mostly.

Indica is a heavier high, more in your body, your limbs, maybe in your head, but it'll be a heavy, maybe drowsy feeling. Not an excited or giggly. They're best for night time, like when you are going to bed, and for patients that want a “couch lock” high to forget about their pain. It grows short, and compact, and the buds are usually huge and dense, with very thick sometimes rounded leaves. Indica originally meant “From India”, but I am almost certain that you can't trace all Indicas back to India. The phenotypes for both are in most plants, but this isn't a post about phenotypes. That's for another time.

Sativa is lighter. More of a head high. You could go to work, and function alright, but it might also provoke great thoughts, and good meditative states depending on the strain. But this is the species that will have you giggling your ass off, and thinking happy thoughts. It grows tall, stretches a lot, and the leaves are thin. The buds grow close to the stem, and don't get to big, and they aren't big yeilders usually, but the highest THC contents that get bred, are always Sativa.

How to tell when you're just buying buds: If there are some leaves, you can maybe tell from that. But dried leaves look too similar to the untrained eye to really decide. You can try by smoking… Knock out, Couch lock, Body High= Indica Happy, Uplifting, Head high=Sativa

But there are some strains that will do things their species isn't supposed to…So you can never really know for sure. The only sure fire way to know is to grow it yourself…Or know the grower well enough to not be lied to. Or like I said before, you could try to gauge the smoke.

Otherwise just assume everything is Hybrid, most stuff is anyways. Even in dispensaries…

What is Hybrid?

A “Hybrid” means that it is a mix of Indica and Sativa. If there is Ruderalis in there, it isn't considered a Hybrid, it is considered an “Autoflower”.

Most Hybrids are at about 50/50 or 60/40. Some are 80/20 though, which depending on whether the 80 is Indica or Sativa, will give it a strong lean towards that strains high.

Most strains that are in the “Black Market”, and even in dispensaries are Hybrid. There are very few Pure strains left…

What is AutoFlower?

There is a third species of Marijuana aside from Indica and Sativa known as “Rudaralis”. This species contains no THC, and is useless medically as far as I know, except in one way. Breeders have bred Rudiralis plants with Sativa and Indica plants to make strains that can flower, without ever going into a flowering cycle. Most plants “veg” on a 24hr cycle (meaning never turn the lights off) or 18/6 (which means 18hrs with lights on, 6 off), and then must be put in flower for 50-80 days for a “flowering” cycle, which is 12/12 (12hrs on, 12 off), strains bred with Rudiralis and one of the others only need about a month to flower, and don't have to be switched into flowering, they will flower while in their “Veg” cycle.

These are called “Autoflower” strains, and are good for new growers. Some even have pretty high THC contents

What is Bagseed?

  • Many people have seen bagseed in their lifetime, but aren't sure what the term means.

“Bagseed” is the seeds that you may find in the bag, when looking through a sack of weed. Some people think of these as completely worthless, and in the case of the super compact, dark brown, crushed seeds bud. They are right. These seeds are worthless, and if you got one to grow, it probably wouldn't be to pretty. But bagseed can grow, and if your bud isn't super super compact, enough to crush all the seeds, then the seeds will probably germinate. And if the bud is green, and gets you pretty high, then it will probably grow into some pretty good bud.

I've grown seeds from Texas (But grew them in a MMJ state), and gotten buds that are just as frosty as any dispensaries, and got me higher than some :D Just random “Reggie” TexMex bagseed :D Turned into some Dank dank :D

So plant your bagseed, you never know what your going to get You could have some master phenotype for all weed that will take us into the next age of weed smoking. Plant your seeds, even if just outside, to never be taken care of again. You never know where these seeds will thrive. They originate from some of the worst deserts in the world.

  • If buds have seeds in them, it means that the buds have been fertilized by a male Marijuana plants pollen, and it grew seeds in the flowers. Which is the point of the plant even having flowers…In nature at least, and for breeding.

The effort that it took to grow these seeds, including: time, light, nutrients, etc. Could have been used on the flower, and THC production. When male and female plants are kept separate, or if you kill the male plants all together. All females will be purely seedless buds unless they “Hermie”.

Low Tolerance Experiences

marijuana can cause some pretty amazing effects when you have no tolerance. I have a story of some crazy shit that happened to me. I was 15 years old. It was THE DAY I got off probation. I had some weed and my friend stole some from his dad. We mixed the two together in a baggie and me and my friends younger brother went to the back yard to smoke it, while my friend stood at the back door and made sure his parents weren't coming while he smoked a cigarette. I forget why he wasn't smoking with us, he must have been on probation or something. I can't remember. But me and his brother go to the back of the yard and sat by the fence at the VERY back away from the house. I had just been on 6 months probation PLUS 8 months lockdown rehab, and before that I had only EVER smoked weed for 2 weeks before getting arrested. So we had NO idea how much we should smoke and we decided we would just keep loading bowls until we felt high. It was only a little metal pipe but we smoked 8 bowls and we had NO tolerance so we got BLAZED as shit. We finally recognized that we were high and walked over to my friend who was “guarding” the door. When we walked over he motioned “Shhh” and went to open the door. Then he turned to his brother and said ”[name] you're pants fell down!!”. And his little brother was so high he freaked out and started grabbing his pants. Then realized everything was fine. Then he SLOWLY opened the door. And quietly, he walked in. Then quietly, I walked in. Then his brother JUMPED into the house, slamming into the door and making a LOUD banging noise, then the blinds bounced back on the door like 3 times, banging even more. So we ran towards the stairs and my friend made sure his parents didn't wake up while me and his brother went upstairs to my friend room. His little brother was freaking out trying to hide under the bed and shit because he knew his older brother would be mad, but when he walked upstairs he wasn't mad at all. Then he turned on some music and we chilled. He wasn't high so he was just doing funny stuff to make us laugh, so he could laugh at how easy it was to make us laugh. Then eventually I closed my eyes. And the CRAZIEST shit happened. I felt like I was sliding UP the wall, then into the air. Eventually I was in the sky and could see towns and houses and shit. Then I got higher and higher until I was like outside the atmosphere. I was breathing in white light and when I breathed out it was blue. I felt amazing. Then my friend nudged me and said “are you awake?” and fucked it all up. Then we went in the garage and smoked a cigarette and I started to feel sick, and threw up in the trash can. Then we went upstairs and listened to more music, then I stared throwing up in the toilet. And I did that for about 30 minutes before I came back out, just chilled for a minute and went to sleep.

First Time Experiences

First time I got high

So I was, and was at a friends house…

Before that week, I thought I would die if I smoked ANYTHING, because I have asthma. But I found a pack of cigarettes, opened, but full and unharmed on the side of the road, with the foil part still closed

Once I smoked that, and weed was offered. I was SOO ready to smoke weed So I was at my friends house, and his mom an brother (that was the rest of the family) went to sleep. He started looking around for something, searching in drawers, behind books, everywhere…

I asked what he was looking for and he said “My Mom's weed, it's in a little baggie” So I started helping him look. We ended up finding it in the drawer in front of/under the computer. It was a little baggie, with about 7g of Reggie in it…He pulled out maybe .1-.2

We both tried out best to roll a joint out of it(Using Christmas bag stuffing paper that his mom had cut perfectly shaped sitting with the weed, and ended up smoking his joint which we declared was better, but still was shitty. He had smoked before, with and without his mom. But I had never ever smoked before at all. So he told me to hold it in, and how long it was going to take and everything.

I didn't really feel anything, so we went and got a little more weed(like .3 this time), and used an Eclipse tin, gum container, with holes in strategic places, instead of a joint.

So after about 10 minutes it REALLY started to kick in I was just laughin, and watching him play Zelda (The Twilight Princess). He was at the part where you sumo wrestle the mayor…There are three options while fighting…It's like slap, grab, sidestep. And it's essentially rock, paper, scissors. But he didn't know that, and he kept losing the match, and once I notice it was Ro,Pa,Sc I told him ” … is paper … is rock … and … is scissors.” He said “Here, you do it.” So I tried, but I never play Zelda, I watched my 10-year-older-than-me step sister play when I was little, but I had never really played Zelda. So when I tried it, I lost too.

But I explained it to him again, and told him to do it. So he did, and won. After that we played Time Splitter, and everything seemed like it was going is slowmotion, which made me REALLY good at sniping

After that we went to sleep, because it was already pretty late when we smoked This next story is the 2nd or 3rd time I got high…

So we smoked in the woods, before our walk to Wednesday youth group at the church We smoked a couple bowls, and were properly toasted, so we decided to start our walk (Me and one other friend)

We were walking through the very suburby neighborhood, and as we were walking. It felt as if we were walking, but the houses were staying still. As if we had a treadmill in the middle of the street, and no matter HOW fast we ran, or how weird we jumped, there was no way to out run it. And we were both just being weird, trying to make the houses move as we walked, but the wouldn't. It felt like were weren't moving at all…

By finally we made it to the fence by a golf course we had to cross. We hopped the fence, and started walking…. All the sudden I stepped in quick sand, I was sinking. Then I realized, it was just a sand trap…

Then my friend yelled as if something crazy were happening, and I said “It's just a sand trap.” So he stopped freaking out, and we laughed about it…

So we finally got tot he other side, and jumped the fence. When we jumped, I looked and the neighborhood we were in was THE SAME one as before, we never even went on the golf course… But then I realized we HAD gone on the golf course, and this was another neighborhood, that just looked the same to me as the other one.

My friends jumped the fence right after me and was like “WHATTT?!?!” And I told him, “It's a different neighborhood, it just looks the same.” And he says, “That's like the second time, you can read my fuckin mind ” But then I told him the same things had just happened to me moments before, and we laughed.

Then we got to the church and met up with another friend. Him and the friends I had came with, noticed a jacket laying int he middle of the parking lot, and decided to go get it. But I didn't want to walk that far. But then sitting there, it felt like it had been 10 minutes, so I went to catch up with them… I was kinda jogging across a semi constructed new part of the church, when all the sudden I died… In front of me was black, beside me on both sides was back, and I assumed behind me was black. But I was trapped, and didn't even have enough room to turn my body or anything… Then I looked up

I had fallin in some kind of ditch in the construction site, that was really thin because they were probably just going to bury a pipe there or something. But I climbed out, and met up with them… We got the jacket went to church, and that's it…

Hash/Extractions

  • Things that can be used to extract the Cannabinoids from Cannabis:

Alcohol (Isopropyl & Drinking/Grain)

Acetone

Naptha

Butane

Water/ice

Dry Ice

Butter

Cooking Oil

Resin

ALL smoke creates tar. The tar that gets in your lungs from cigarette smoke, is a form of tobacco resin.

But there is more to Marijuana resin than that.

The second element of resin is a form of butane extraction. The solvent from the lighter is released, and together with the Cannabinoids in the smoke, stick to the walls of a pipe.

And one more thing that makes it up, Ashes. Anything that sucked through while you were smoking. Mostly ash from smoked material, but possibly some crumbs of unsmoked weed.

Resin is fine to smoke, in the 60's some people actually added ash to solvent hash to make it solid. It's not any worse for you than weed, in fact it's possible that it can (not will) get you higher as it is a form of concentrate.

Difference Between Hash and Resin

Hash is clean. The THC has not been burned, and their is no ashes (scoobie snacks) in hash, but there is in resin. Hash is done by grade, and you can actually see the difference. Hash will smell and taste different than resin, but not necessarily better. Some tar hashs are just as nasty.

Basically:

Resin=Dirty as shit, but works

Hash=Clean, and AWESOME

Dro Misconception

I want to clear something up.

Most people think that when they say “Dro”, and think that the buds they call “Dro” have been grow “Hydroponically”. This makes sense, or would…If all weed that was called “Dro” was “Hydroponically grown”. But it's not. Most people call ANY seedless bud “dro”, but what it really usually is, is “Sensimilla” which means “Seedless”, or you could simply call it “Dank weed”, or even better, EVERY seedless weed usually has a strain name (But many are lies in Illegal states, some are even lies in legal states).

This is never going to change, I just wanted to let people know, when some people say dro, maybe even you reading this right now, they don't actually mean it. Most weed is grow in soil though, seedless or not. And in my opinion, soil grows the best weed.

Disproving Myths with Science

Contrary to the common belief that smoking the drug destroys memory, researchers have found that it could actually keep the brain young. The team at Ohio State University found that specific elements of marijuana can be good for the ageing brain by reducing inflammation there and possibly even stimulating the formation of new brain cells. The research suggests that the development of a legal drug that contains certain properties similar to those in marijuana might help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

The research, which was presented to the Society for Neuroscience, involved giving rats a constant dose of a cannabis derivative for three weeks. A control group of rats received no intervention. In follow-up memory tests, in which rats were placed in a small swimming pool to determine how well they use visual cues to find a platform hidden under the surface of the water, the treated rats did better than the control rats in learning and remembering how to find the hidden platform.

Alzheimer's disease is the leading cause of dementia among the elderly, and with the ever-increasing size of this population, cases of Alzheimer's disease are expected to triple over the next 50 years. Consequently, the development of treatments that slow or halt the disease progression have become imperative to both improve the quality of life for patients as well as reduce the health care costs attributable to Alzheimer's disease. Here, we demonstrate that the active component of marijuana, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), competitively inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) as well as prevents AChE-induced amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) aggregation, the key pathological marker of Alzheimer's disease. Computational modeling of the THC-AChE interaction revealed that THC binds in the peripheral anionic site of AChE, the critical region involved in amyloidgenesis. Compared to currently approved drugs prescribed for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, THC is a considerably superior inhibitor of Aβ aggregation, and this study provides a previously unrecognized molecular mechanism through which cannabinoid molecules may directly impact the progression of this debilitating disease.

A 2008 study even demonstrated that a THC-like substance reduced brain inflammation and improved memory in older rats.

The latest review, published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, suggests that activating the brain’s cannabinoid system may trigger a sort of anti-oxidant cleanse, removing damaged cells and improving the efficiency of the mitochrondria, the energy source that powers cells, ultimately leading to a more robustly functioning brain.

Prof. Yosef Sarne in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Tel Aviv University says that [cannabis] … has neuroprotective qualities. He has found that extremely low doses of THC — the psychoactive component of marijuana — protects the brain from long-term cognitive damage in the wake of injury from hypoxia (lack of oxygen), seizures, or toxic drugs.

Previous studies focused on injecting high doses of THC within a very short time frame – approximately 30 minutes – before or after injury. Sarne’s papers in Behavioural Brain Research and Experimental Brain Research say that even extremely low doses of THC – around 1,000 to 10,000 times less than that in a conventional marijuana cigarette – administered over a wide window of 1 to 7 days before or 1 to 3 days after injury can jump-start biochemical processes which protect brain cells and preserve cognitive function over time.

… In the lab, the researchers injected mice with a single low dose of THC either before or after exposing them to brain trauma. A control group of mice sustained brain injury but did not receive the THC treatment. When the mice were examined 3 to 7 weeks after initial injury, recipients of the THC treatment performed better in behavioral tests measuring learning and memory. Additionally, biochemical studies showed heightened amounts of neuroprotective chemicals in the treatment group compared to the control group.

… This treatment, especially in light of the long time frame for administration and the low dosage, could be applicable to many cases of brain injury and be safer over time, Sarne says.

The lower education levels of the pot smokers — and their greater likelihood of being male — had made it look like marijuana had significantly affected their intelligence. In fact, men simply tend to do worse than women on tests of verbal intelligence, while women generally underperform on math tests. The relative weighting of the tests made the impact of pot look worse than it was. The adverse impacts of cannabis use on cognitive functions either appear to be related to pre-existing factors or are reversible in this community cohort even after potentially extended periods of use. These findings may be useful in motivating individuals to lower cannabis use, even after an extensive history of heavy intake.

[b]This study builds on previous work by Harvard researchers[/b] demonstrating that the learning and[u][b] memory impairments of heavy marijuana users typically vanish within 28 days of “smoking cessation.”[/b][/u] (The slight impairments still existed, however, one week after smoking.) While several days might sound like a long hippocampal hangover, heavy alcohol users typically experience deficits that persist for several months, if not years. In other words, heavy marijuana use appears to be a lot less damaging than alcoholism.[/i]” http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/08/does-marijuana-make-you-stupid/
