Is the implication cannabis oil is 10x stronger than cannabis?

There were several questionable statements in that article.

Frederick: Is the implication cannabis oil is 10x stronger than cannabis?


No. Plant leaves contain a small amount of oil along with many other things like cellulose and chlorophyll. The oil will always be more concentrated.

Look at menthol. It literally burns your eyes. Meanwhile you eat a whole stalk of mint and it won't even tickle your nose.

Hot peppers like Habenero are painful, but fun to eat. Pure pepper oil is used by the police to drop criminals.

Oil, how the hell does it work.

Purchase believes marijuana heals, and credits the drug for curing her stepfather's skin cancer.
She herself is an Oregon medical marijuana patient, and her boyfriend is Mykayla's grower. She is so convinced of the drug's safety that she consumed it during the pregnancy and while breastfeeding her second child.


Sounds legit.

Thats a confusing reply; you say "no", and then go on to explain "yes". Also, for what its worth joints are rolled from the fruit (buds) of the plant -the leafs are discarded.

Frederick: "no", and then go on to explain "yes".



Oil is not 10 times stronger, it's concentrated to an unknown level above the leaves but the strength of the THC is the same; joints are not a standardized unit of measurement; and 1.5 x 10 does not equal 10. I stand by no.

you could make cannabis oil 1100% stronger and it wouldn't do any permanent harm. the body uses what it can, then stores the rest in fat cells. and when THOSE fill up, it flushes the leftovers.

it's literally impossible for cannabis to damage the human body.

Seriously? She smoked while pregnant? And no one has called child protective services? There's a causal link between smoking anything and birth defects.

fark, I'm jealous of those Washington and Colorado guys with their legal recreational weed. Up to an an ounce without a problem. And I'm absolutely for driving-while-high laws. That's reasonable.

It just really depends on the THC concentration. I've seen oils that are extremely high concentration (70-80% +), and some that are very low (less than 10%). So unless they did a chemical analysis on the oil, there's no way to know.

Heh, so less damage than if you were to smoke a "pack" of joints.

I don't know anyone who goes through 10 joints a week, but plenty of smokers go through a pack or two per week. Would do it daily, except for New York's draconian tobacco tax.

It sounds like a case of overprotective father meets addicted mother. The real truth actually lies in the middle here (what else is a chemotherapy patient going to do, gymnastics??), and both sides are pretty extreme. Dad's probably getting his information from AM radio and mom's probably too far gone up her own ass to listen to anybody but her biased boyfriend.
 
2012-11-25 11:14:23 AM  
I am for using whatever is best to reduce the ill effects of chemotherapy. But I am not for parents just deciding what medicine will be best for their kids and administering at will.

Also, I don't think one parent has the right to give the kid some non doctor approved treatment without consulting the other parent.

I'm not against medical marijuana but the mom sounds a little irresponsible to me. They aren't even telling their doctor about this treatment.

And according to all of the research I have seen marijuana is harmless to adults, but it has not undergone any testing on children, learning, or specifically to be used to treat a child's chemotherapy symptoms. Medicine is not as simple as 'well it worked for adults so there will be no ill effects for anyone!' Unless there have been studies, in which case I take back everything I said and good for mom for trying to make her kid feel better.

iheartscotch: Everyone knows that you aren't supposed to smoke cigarettes while pregnant; why would pot be any different?


Because it's different?

I smoked my last hit a couple days ago from my one-hitter. I used to love weed, started smoking in junior high and usage peaked in college...there was no downside, everything was just better high. A few years after college the effect on me changed and it gradually made me more and more non-functional with use, and I'd start passing out sooner, especially when combined with alcohol. The last few years the only time I'd smoke it was if I knew I was staying home and there was nothing to do that required any thought. So the other night I took a few hits, thoughts became scrambled, and I passed out about an hour later. Maybe I'm gettin' old but I'm done wit it!

I had the same argument with a guy at work (I thought it was irresponsible that my mother smoked pot while pregnant with me). He played devils advocate. Turns out that study has actually been done. It was done in Jamaica since it needs to be socially acceptable. Turned out the not only did it not seem to have negative effects on the child, but it seemed to slightly improve intelligence.

To her credit it doesn't say she smoked while pregnant, it says she consumed while pregnant. As to whether that's better or worse I honestly don't know.
