doglover: 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.


Once it hits the anus, they're bound to find out.

There are some who think sick people should just lie around in bed all day. Doctors overprescribing, I say. Sick people can perform useful work as doorstops, paperweights, wheel chocks, the list is endless. In a disaster, the desperately ill can be used as sandbags. Hurricane Sandy would have been nothing more than an abnormally high tide if the deathly ill among us were no longer molly-coddled by overedumacated doctors.

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

Everyone knows you're not supposed to drink wine while pregnant; why would grape juice be any different?

Hey now! Smoking is still smoking; it is known that smoking cigarettes is causal in birth defects. Why risk it? It could be harmless, but, how would you feel if that child had any adverse effects?

I don't know, one way or the other; but it seems like an unnecessary risk.


It's known that inhaling cigarette smoke is causal in birth defects. Why risk it? Who knows what inhaling oxygen could do?

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

There were several questionable statements in that article.

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.

Mock26: That means that nearly every single teenage boy in America is a dope fiend!


You know, if you apply the propaganda speech from fear and loathing in las vegas, it would apply to teenage boys almost wholly with the exception of tea-shades being out of fashion:

"KNOW YOUR DOPE FIEND. YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON IT! You will not be able to see his eyes because of Tea-Shades, But his knuckles will be white from inner tension and his pants will be crusted with semen from constantly jacking off when he can't find a rape victim. He will stagger and babble when questioned. He will not respect your badge. The Dope Fiend fears nothing. He will attack, for no reason, with every weapon at his command-including yours. BEWARE. Any officer apprehending a suspected marijuana addict should use all necessary force immediately. One stitch in time (on him) will usually save nine on you. Good luck. - The Chief"

Thank you.

/Plus it's amusing watching people responding to someone claiming to be a user when the real users can see right through the bullshiat story that person's slinging.

It is funny. My favorite is when people claim dealers lace weed with other shiat. All those other drugs are wayyyyyyy more expensive than weed, and criminal drug dealers don't operate on charity.

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.
