    Marijuana: Toke Up on Mold, Insects and Manure

    Some may tout marijuana as a safe, recreational drug with valuable medicinal properties, but toke up your joint and it likely contains mold, pesticides, even dead insects, according to researchers at the University of New Haven in Connecticut.

    In their genetic studies of marijuana, the researchers found a variety of nasty byproducts in the plant: fungi, mildew and even such bacterial contaminants as e-coli and salmonella.

    not sure if I put this in the right forum; but if ew are going to use marijuana for medical uses - it's time for the states to provide some quality control.

    I would imagine Big Pharma is working on things like Sativex to crowd out the plant market -
    afterall much more profits in pill forum then going to all the trouble of ensuiring pharmaceutical grade weeds to be sold.

    But until the "whole plant" ( ALL or MOST of the cannibinoids) can be delivered in an oral spray, or pill - smoking marijuna is still the only way to get the benefits of the hundreds of canninbinoids.

    Time for the states to step up, and time for the Fed's to just re-schedule marijuana down from a Schedule 1 drug.

    The reason you should use a pill instead of a plant is that the exact dosage and absorption of the drug can be much more readily controlled, with minimal contaminants and variations. Smoking is actually one of the worst ways to deliver medicine.

    You just want to smoke weed. Be honest about it. Your interest isn't medical.

    We have medical "marijuana" through marinol which is quality controlled. It's a specific dose of synthetic canabinoid by prescription only. We have legal "medical marijuana." It's just not something that you smoke or provides an easy way for backdoor legalization.

    Uhm so do most canned foods, though through cooking they are deemed harmless. So let's see, is the end of a joint as hot or hotter than cooking?

    Actually inhaled medications are better than those that go through the gastrointestinal tract, with the exceptions of course of ones intended to work therein. The gasteic juices and the slow absorption make pills one of the least effective from anything I've ever read.

    Re: Marijuana: Toke Up on Mold, Insects and Manure

    Safety is over-rated in this nation of pussies. Every week I read an article telling me that my cats poop will kill me. Well, I ain't dead and heaven knows I handle cat poop, they stick their butts in my face and AFAIK, pot is probably cleaner than my cats asses.

    Light up. You'll be fine.

    You did not just get lucky, in order to create the smoke you lit the mj of fire and guess what, heat makes those things harmless.

    look at it; an extensive graph of the phytocannibinoids ( plant delivered, as oposed to endocanibinoids synthesized by the body).

    This is breakthru medicine, the hundreds of cannibinoids are not easily stabilized, nor proportioned like the various strains of the plant in an oral spray
    Eventually they WILL be but they are NOT now.

    here is another chart, shows some of the therapeutic uses.

    That's not true for all drugs. Some drug particles can't be adequately absorbed and delivered through the lungs or might irritate the lungs. We formulate pills to work and be bioavalable through the GI route. We can enteric coat them, put in place delayed release medications, formulate the drug in a salt form to aid in absorption and numerous other things.

    Re: Marijuana: Toke Up on Mold, Insects and Manure

    The OP is correct in that the medical benefits are a dynamic combination of cannabinoids and terpenes.

    While it is theoretically possible to determine what complexes work best for what conditions, it won't be just one. And as extremely low thc strains already exist, and side effects are minimal, why make it necessary to pay some corporation hundreds of dollars for something you can adequately approximise with simple strain genetics and grow yourself for almost nothing?

    The Israelis have let the cat out of the bag. Cannabis works. NOW big pharma will stop trying to keep it out and try to control it instead.

    Better than the previous needless suffering, I guess.
