    Hi Hunter's, I wanted to make this topic for a while but haven't had the courage to word it out, i do feel tho however that it could possible help someone as it helped me. so i will explain just what i mean when i say using White family Genetic's to treat opiate and cocaine addiction. those of you who know me or check out my grow's would probably be surprised to find out i am an EX heroin addict and was addicted to opiate's for a long time. I have a disease known as IBD or inflamed bowel disease. I had been self medicating with pain killer's all through high school and for the majority of my adult life. For the longest time i could remember i felt hopeless. I used methadone to try and quit with zero success i would use heroin on top of the methadone because the methadone alone was sufficient to treat the pain it was a cycle of let down after let down and i truly felt trapped. For the longest time i thought there was nothing i could do and that i was destine to be an addict for the rest of my life. Until the day my doctor suggested i try marijuana for pain and the methadone for addiction. i thought she was crazy i already smoked marijuana in my teen's like crazy tho i had stopped for the most part by then because i found that smoking marijuana when i was in withdrawal gave me panic attack's and made my situation worse. She told me that different strain's can have different effect's so try a numasber of them till you find one that work'. and SO i went to the dispensary and bought a bunch of different type's of marijuana. For me i was like a kid in a candy store and it renewed my love for weed. so i got to smoking and trying as many strain's as possible, i found personally that many of the strain's helped my pain some even better then the opiate's. But the most amazing thing was when i smoked a strain called GWS again this strain used to be very popular when i was a kid so it was a blast from the past for me to try again. when i smoked it tho i found something incredible happened all my urge's to use opiate's just went away almost like i forgot about it ( which any addict will tell you is impossible) i couldent believe it the more of it i smoked the less i relapsed. eventually i was able to stop taking heroin all together around the time i joined this forum i actually started to come off my methadone. everyone i know has seen the change in my condition both my doctor's on the medical side and my parent's family and friend's. my mom to this day thank's god that i found marijuana again and it has completely changed her view's on marijuana. But here's the thing i knew it worked for me but until recently i had no clue as to why? i had a lot of questions like why did GWS and white widow have this effect? i remeber watching a video from drug inc around this time where aryan mentioned his time in laos and thailand treating heroin junkies with marijuana. http://www.growhd.tv/video/Drugs-Inc-Amsterdam/7aca827bcd85ebc72fda1bd3d72a7b19 It prompted me to look further into the medical literature on cannabis. I found a few thing's i think can answer these question's and help many other's suffering from addiction. i am now comming up to my 1 year anniversary (november 17) of being off heroin completely , within the next 6 month's i plan to be completely off methadone at which time i will be completely off opiate's a feat i have never successful accomplished in the 8 + year's of using intravenous hard drug's. Now this isent a miracle cure but with addiction there are no miracle cure's, i may only have 1 year of being clean from heroin but i have been seriously trying for over 2 year's to get here. But the marijuana helped greatly i doubt i could have even gotten this far without it. and i finally found out why it helped which is something i feel i should share with everyone and is why i am describing this personal story.... my first clue came in the form of the grow session's video's from green house tho it took me a while to put the two together, i did rescearch on cannabinoid's and still couldn't find the answer then i heard franco and aryan talking about terpene profile's and said hey i need to look into these terpene's. I then went to Green House's website where they profile the terpene's of almost all of there strain's and looked specifically at white widow and just started going down the list of most abundant terpene's.... Once i looked into the second and third most abundant terpene i had my answer Caryophyllene!!!! this terpene is one of the most amazing in my mind, for one it's the only terpene that is known to activate CB2 receptor's and the only non cannabinoid that is known to do so. and lucky for me it has been shown to improve the symptom's of colitis but it also appear's that this terpene is the perfect natural dietary full CB2 agonist. Now this part need's alittle exsplaining. in around 2011 a study was done using a new potent selective CB2 agonist, a chemical called JWH133 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JWH-133) in the study Mice where given a drip to self administer cocaine after a period of time half of the mice where given this CB2 agonist JWH133. the result's where that the mice given the CB2 receptor agonist stopped self administering the cocaine while the other mice just continued on taking the cocaine. Here is a link to pubmed's publication of the finding's (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21785434) This study has amazing implication's, a scientist out of switzerland has been studying terpene's and specifically beta - Caryophyllene and he say's that Beta Caryophyllene is an even more effective selective CB2 agonist then the JWH133 as you can read here - http://gertschgroup.com/blog/entry/2198093/the-cb2-receptor-involved-in-cocaine-addiction So it seem's the CB2 receptor is directly involved in addiction and have an effect on the reward center of the brain. This is really fascinating when you consider that it can not only help those with one of the hardest addiction's to treat cocaine addiction but also in other form's of addiction as most addictive behavior is linked to the reward center and the regulation and production of dopamine. i can confirm the result's in the mice study from my experience with the widow family genetic's most specifically the White widow and GWS from Green house seed company. i would smoke the strain whenever i felt the craving for a fix and by the time i finnished the joint my craving's had completely subsided. This could be extremely useful in treating opiate addiction especially in the crucial few week's and month's after kicking the drug. but also in a number of other addiction's. On a side note, cannabis high in beta caryophllene might also be good for smoker's who report panic attacks from marijuana, Beta caryophllene is found in a certain type of black pepper. Black pepper is one of the ingredient's in an ancient cannabis antidote used to curb the intoxicating effect's of THC Ancient cannabis antidotes. (A) Lemon (Citrus limon). ( Calamus plant roots (Acorus calamus). © Pine nuts (Pinusspp.). (D) Black pepper (Piper nigrum) all of these item's contain Terpene's found in cannabis the lemon rind's have lemonene , the pine nut's pinene, the black pepper has both pinene and beta caryophyelle, and the Calamus root has mycrene among other terpene's . So in conclusion while i hope that no one look's down on me for my past, i feel that it's important that if we find some sort of medical use for cannabis to make it known. i know Cannabis helped me greatly during the hardest time's of my life and continue to help me to this day which is why i grow it and try to show other's how to grow it at home easily. i hope someone find's help with this info. i would like to hear more about Aryan's experience's with this man treating heroin addict's as it was part of what brought me to find this info. anyways until next time stay green!

    Hey'all, Little update. I've been looking all day and night on forums to understand what is going on with the dried buds on the living plants. It could be either 4 things: 1. It is rotting 2. It is infected with diseases'n'shit 3. It was burned 4. Not enough C02 to process light Since the situation IS spreading on another bud, i've decided to Harvest the plant today, instead of 2 weeks from now. I don't want to lose the second plant, and don't care if i'm harvesting it a bit early. By the schedule, i could start harvesting her from 2nd of December. Another thing i wanted to spurt out: i tested S2. Since S2 (like S3) is not from a known strain (bagseed) i'm writing my review. I'll colour the categories in this way: Green means "great", Yellow means "good but could be better", Orange means "Mehh" and Red means "dude the fuck is this shit". Look: the bud is airy, blasted with resin, and a few reddish pistils. Her leaves show little purpling. Smell: the smell isn't very strong, but it has that grape scent i talked about in previous posts. Smell-touched: Touching a bud will make your nose go haywire. Grape smell is completely overwelmed by a strong orange - candy smell. Taste: Light taste of oranges, a bit of pine. High: Since when smoking it you don't feel too much flavours, you'll keep smoking it until you realize, after 5-6 hits, that you've fucked up and she wasn't joking around. The effect is indeed hybrid. You get really, really creative in the first hour or so of the high, and then subsides in a calm, relaxing stone that will keep you sleepy for another hour and a half. After the stony-phase, be sure you have munchies around, or you'll starve. Half a joint made me hungry like i didn't eat for a week. I'll see you this evening for the Harvest session. Peace!

    All the girls in their final 46 litre pots now. SS and IC the last to go in theirs today. Watered/fed as the other earlier with half a veg week three feeding in 12 litres (ppm 450 ph 6.2), the second 6l of those 12l having some molasses mixed in. It's day 50 (from germination) for DD & Nebula. It's day 37 (from germination) for IC & JW. It's day 33 (from germination) for SS. The switch to flowering is a week or two away. My LSTing & lollypopping means they don't grow as fast as they could, but they've all got some lovely side training on them so I'm very happy with my LST investment. I this photo we have SS (top left) DD (top right) JW (middle) IC (bottom left) Nebula (bottom right). Each plant has four shoot levels (including the top), level 1 has first two shoots nipped off (early lollypopping), level 2 has first side shoots nipped off. Levels 3 & 4 have also been topped. I won't be SCRoGing for a while until they have some height (another 12 inches). As an example, JW (middle plant) is 3 inches tall from ground to level 4 (top) node. The level 4 nodes stretch 4 inches, level 3 nodes stretch 6.5 inches and is 2 inches from side of pot and ready to head upwards (level 2 & 1 are 5.5 inches & 5 inches respectively).

    Hello! Sometimes I add a little olive oil to the mixture with beeswax, just a little, so it is smoother and more appealing. Also some essence of eucalyptus, this makes the sensation of freshness in the skin is very rewarding. Regards!

    Nice stuff Robbo! The finest screen I have for making dry sift is 180 micron so don't get the best kief out of it but I combine it with decent oil to make a nice black hash that smokes well and really kicks butt.

    High #Robbo#420# A press isn't really going to get you oils out of unflowered plants and isn't the best way to extract oils even from top bench buds. A small hobbyist steam distillation unit will get oils but will only do small batches so you might be at it for a long time to get much. Solvent extractions would be the way to go but then you are messing with large quantities of highly flammable liquids. I used to boil the ground up leaves and tops to make a crude pot oil using isopropanol in a 4L plastic milk jug back in '82. Further processing would be needed with something like naphtha to separate the oil from all the junk you get from such a method. A lot of work for what will be very little product. As to making your own fiber suitable for making clothing that will prove to be even more work. Better off just buying a pair of hemp shorts online. Good luck!

    Like to try smth new. Most of the time, I use homemade creams with natural ingredients (oils, vitamins, etc). I keep all my creams in special cosmetic jars ( found them at http://allinpackaging.co.uk/containers/jar/ ). It's very convenient. My fav ingredients for massage cream are coconut oil, argana oil and yiang ylang.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
