Weed May Treat Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder may be one of the world’s oldest known illnesses with records dating back thousands of years.

But today, doctors are challenged when it comes to treating the condition. The challenge is drug abuse; a problem that affects only 6% of the general population yet plagues more than half of all patients with bipolar disorder.

Interestingly, weed appears to be the drug of choice for these patients, which has led many to see a possible treatment of this disorder. Formerly known as “Manic Depression,” the symptoms of bipolar disorder may include poor temper control, poor judgement, little need for sleep, reckless behavior, lack of self control and sufferers being easily distracted, among other things. Millions suffer from these symptoms every day, and many of them use marijuana to treat their disorder.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder causes drastic mood swings, alternating between states of depression and mania. Mania can range from moderate levels of energy and excitement to symptoms of psychosis, such as erratic and delusional behaviors.

Researchers say that approximately 4% of the population will fit the criteria of bipolar disorder at some point in their lives. And while the underlying cause has yet to be identified, there are a variety of treatment options available.

The first-line of treatment is lithium which acts to reverse symptoms of mania, but other mood-stabilizers (anticonvulsants) and anti-psychotics are commonly used as well.

On the other hand, current pharmaceutical treatments subject patients to a wide range of side-effects, which can sometimes outweigh the benefits of the treatments themselves. As a result, many are beginning to turn to medical marijuana – a rarely recommended treatment option that is gradually becoming more noticed as research progresses.

How Can Weed Help?

Marijuana acts on the  endocannabinoid system– a homeostatic regulator that is present in all humans. Interestingly, research suggests that certain cannabinoids found in marijuana (i.e. THC and CBD) may have significant mood-stabilizing properties that could be beneficial for patients with the disorder.

Studies have shown that THC, under certain conditions, can have anti-anxiety, anti-hypnotic and antidepressant effects, resulting in improvements in mood and overall well-being. CBD seems to counter the psychoactive effects of THC and may also possess anti-anxiety, anti-hypnotic and anti-convulsant properties of its own.

Researchers have also identified a link between marijuana use and cognitive improvements in patients with schizophrenia – a finding could explain evidence of similar improvements in bipolar disorder.

What Studies Say

A number of recent studies have set out to determine the effects of marijuana use on patients with bipolar disorder and have provided some thought-provoking findings.

In 2010, researchers at the University of Oslo in Norway published the results of a study conducted on 133 bipolar patients. What they found was that patients who used cannabis regularly actually performed better than non-users on tests of verbal fluency and learning, although improvements in learning were not statistically significant.

In another study, published in 2012 by researchers at the Zucker Hillside Hospital in New York, regular marijuana use was linked to higher levels of attention, processing speed and memory among the 200 bipolar patients that the researchers followed over a 9 year span. Interestingly, the study also found that they were still more engaged in social activities than non-users. Furthermore, the study identified no significant differences between cannabis use and independent living or work impairments.

Anecdotal Evidence

Despite the overall lack of clinical research available on marijuana use and bipolar outcomes, case reports provide an abundance of evidence that seem to support its usefulness.

study published in 1998 by Harvard university documented 5 cases in which patients obtained major relief from their bipolar-related symptoms through the use of marijuana. One of these patients, a 47-year-old woman, found weed to be more effective than other drugs in controlling her manic episodes. “A few puffs of this herb and I can be calm… this drug seems harmless compared to other drugs I have tried, including tranquilizers and lithium.”

In another case, the husband of a bipolar sufferer told of numerous ways that weed seemed to help his wife in dealing with the disorder. “My wife functions much better when she uses marijuana. When she is hypomanic, it relaxes her, helps her sleep, and slows her speech down. When she is depressed and would otherwise lie in bed all day, the marijuana makes her more active… Lithium is also effective, but it doesn’t always keep her in control.”

These cases were also cited alongside others in a review study conducted by a team of British researchers. The review, published in 2005 in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, presented evidence from a 1996 report that described 5 cases in which marijuana seemed to have a direct effect in countering depression. The researchers also cited 2 surveys conducted in 2003 which found that 15-27% of medical marijuana patients in California were prescribed the drug for various mood disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and ADHD.

What exactly is Weed Wax and Shatter?

Cannabis Extracts/ Concentrates

Things have changed regarding marijuana since I started toking in the 70’s. Nowadays there is lingo such as Shatter, Wax, Honeycomb, Crumble, Sap, Budder, Pull-and-Snap, Taffy, Dabbing, Vaping and others, WTF? These are just some of the slang words that cannabis extracts or concentrates have earned through their popularity in recent years. Marijuana concentrates are a complicated issue in the ever-expanding weed marketplace nowadays.

For those of you who are new to the concentrates game, a cannabis extract is any oil that concentrates weed’s cannabinoids like THC and CBD. These concentrates are extremely potent (they typically hover around 75% but can allegedly go as high as 90% ) and are also extremely difficult to heat up. Concentrates are the product of  cannabinoid extraction processes using a solvent such as butane. The goal of concentrates is to eliminate all plant matter and extract the resin from the plant matter. Concentrates are made by mixing cannabis plant matter with a solvent. Then, the solution is usually strained and purged to remove all plant matter and any dangerous solvents from the product. Once the extract is purged of the solvent, usually butane, you’ll generally have a shatter-like oil. Agitating the oil through various methods makes this into a wax. It can be a dangerous process since flammables are used, so leave it to the professionals my friends.


Shatter is the product of butane hash oil extraction. It’s achieved through skillful purging of the butane and cannabis solution, often employing the use of a vacuum. The product is a clear, often yellow or orange hue. It’s very malleable, almost like taffy.

Shatter, with its beautiful amber glass transparency has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality – the consistency and texture of oil comes down to different factors entirely. The reason shatter comes out clear has to do with the molecules which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap). Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap or taffy”

Weed Wax

Wax is also the product of a butane hash oil extraction. It’s often the product of a failed shatter extract, as there are still residual fats, lipids, and possibly butane left due to improper purging techniques. Weed Wax refers to the softer, opaque oils that have lost their transparency after extraction. Unlike those of transparent oils, the molecules of weed wax crystallize as a result of agitation, often through whipping the oil into a more stable consistency. Light can’t travel through irregular molecular densities, and that refraction leaves us with a solid, non-transparent oil.

Just as transparent oils span between shatter and sap, wax can also take on different consistencies based on heat, moisture, and the texture of the oil before it is purged (the process in which residual solvents are removed from the product). Runny oils with more  moisture tend to form gooey waxes often called “Budder,” while the harder ones are likely to take on a soft, brittle texture known as “crumble” or “honeycomb.” The term “wax” can be used to describe all of these softer, solid textures.

Shatter can turn to wax

Sometimes shatter will ‘wax-up after being stored over a period of time. The agitation that turns shatter to wax is occurring either because of residual solvent trying to evaporate or because of terpenes trying to evaporate. Shatter is slightly unstable and tends to degrade into budder over time. THCA molecules tend to crystallize by coming together, but the viscous nature of the oil slows this down. Still, it eventually happens to a lot of shatter at room temperature or higher. Refrigeration is key for preserving extracts, but it needs to be done right. Improper handling upon thawing can lead to the introduction of moisture and quick  degradation of all your product.

There’s a reason cannabis extraction is now as big a part of competitive Cannabis Cups as flowers; the knowledge and care that goes into extracting oils is as complicated as the art of growing the plants they are derived from. Every step of the extraction process demands a balance of art and science, beginning with the selection of starting material and ending with the purging and storage process.

Dabbing, Vaping and more

There are many ways to consume concentrates. There are many options. It can be overwhelming to someone who just wants to give it a go, especially when it comes to purchasing equipment costing $100-plus. Also, not all ways of consuming concentrates are created equal, they all have their pros and cons for different types of users.


Vaporizing is one of the healthiest methods for inhaling marijuana concentrates. You can vaporize almost any form of concentrate. Many kinds of vaporizers are sold online and at head  shops. Vaporizers are specifically manufactured to heat THC to the optimal vaporization point so you can experience the purest high without unnecessary waste or toxins.


Dabbing is quickly becoming one of the most popular methods for consuming marijuana concentrates. Special ‘dab rigs‘ provide all of the required attachments you will need to “dab” with. You can also purchase bong and water pipe attachments at most head shops that replace the bowl with a “skillet” or “hash nail.” To dab, heat up the skillet using a torch, drop the concentrate onto the heated glass surface and then inhale the smoke through the chambers of the bong or rig. Dabbing burns concentrate at temperatures very close to THC’s vaporization point — making dabs one of the healthier smoking methods. However, dabbing often results in a very intense high, so we recommend only those who are veterans with marijuana to try this specific method.


You can find concentrate bowl attachments for ‘bongs and ‘bubblers in most head shops or online. Place the extract at the bottom of the concentrate bowl and then heat it using a stick, known as a glass wand, which vaporizes the concentrate upon contact. Glass wands are just one form of the burning tools used for smoking concentrate out of bowls. Other heating methods fail to vaporize efficiently, which causes combustion and carcinogenic smoke. These alternatives include soldering irons, butane lighters and hemp wicks. While hemp wicks don’t vaporize, they can help you avoid the harmful chemicals released from butane lighters.

This simplified explanation of oil consistencies and how to consume them is only a scratch on the surface of this product cannabis extracts, and it’s exciting to imagine how much further science and technology will carry its potential.

Weed can be very, very destructive, to young minds!

Weed is very bad for teens.

The more weed that teens consume at a younger age, the more problems they tend to have later in life. Adolescence is a sensitive time for brain development, if a teen introduces use of marijuana at that point in their life, it could very well have serious consequences for their ability to problem solve, for their memory and for critical thinking in general and those consequences are permanent, and irreversible.. Teenagers who smoke weed damage their brains for LIFE and may be more likely to develop such mental illness’s such as schizophrenia!

Why? Because the brain is still forming during teenage and young-adult years. The tissue itself is still developing connections between brain regions and producing the cells that process information. Neurodevelopment is particularly active during childhood and adolescence. Regular use of weed during that time has been linked to permanent problems with memory, learning, perception, impulse control, and more. It is true that a very clear relationship between teenage pot use and decreased cognitive function and mental health is demonstrated across the scientific community. Researchers say that marijuana is particularly dangerous for a group of teens who have a genetic susceptibility to the mental health disorder schizophrenia – and it could be the trigger for it.

What Kind of Research Has Been Done? Lots.


The study in the link above, which appeared in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, sought to distinguish the effects of daily marijuana use on the adolescent brain from the effects of schizophrenia on the deep regions of the brain that are necessary for working memory. Schizophrenia is a very disruptive illness on working memory, and a kid using weed regularly, produced many similar effects on the brain to schizophrenia. Researchers found that teens who smoked a lot of weed had abnormal changes in their brain structures related to working memory — a predictor of weak academic performance and impaired everyday functioning — and that they did poorly on memory-related tasks. The scientists noted that these effects were still apparent two years after their subjects had stopped using marijuana.

While the study focused on heavy marijuana users — specifically, those who indulged daily for about three years — one of its most crucial findings related not to the amount of weed an adolescent smoked, but when he or she started: The earlier the drug was taken up, the worse the effects on the brain.

Marijuana is the ideal compound to screw up everything for a kid, If they are into athletics, a chess player, on the debating team or an artist, you need working memory, and marijuana hurts the brain circuitry in that area if it is still developing, permanently.

Researchers at Duke University concluded a study a couple of years ago of more than 1,000 people from the time they were born until they reached the age of 38. Studies were performed periodically throughout their lives, and were carefully controlled to ensure test subjects did not have any other drug or alcohol addictions or psychological disorders, and were not high at the time of the test. They found that those who used pot more than once weekly before age 18 displayed more severely impaired intelligence, slower reaction times, shorter attention spans, and poorer listening skills than those who began using marijuana after age 18. https://today.duke.edu/2012/08/potiq

The Lancet Psychiatry‘ reported the following statistics on teens who smoked marijuana daily …
60% less likely to complete high school than those who never use.
60% less likely to graduate college.
18 times more likely to become dependent on marijuana.
8 times more likely to use other hard illegal drugs in the future.
7 times more likely to attempt suicide.

It’s not just daily use. According to the researchers behind the study, teens who used cannabis just monthly were also at risk of underachievement.

According to a recent study at the University of Maryland Medical Center, published in the Neuropsychopharmacology, the study’s senior author Asaf Keller, Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology, “Previous research has shown that children who started using marijuana before the age of 16 are at greater risk of permanent cognitive deficits, and have a significantly higher incidence of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. There likely is a genetic susceptibility, and then you add marijuana during adolescence and it becomes the trigger.”
“Adolescence is the critical period during which marijuana use can be damaging,” says the study’s lead author, Dr Sylvina Mullins Raver, Ph.D. in Anatomy and Neurobiology,
The scientists began by examining cortical oscillations in mice. Cortical oscillations are patterns of the activity of neurons in the brain and are believed to underlie the brain’s various functions. These oscillations are very abnormal in schizophrenia and in other psychiatric disorders. The scientists exposed young mice to very low doses of the active ingredient in marijuana for 20 days, and then allowed them to return to their siblings and develop normally.
“In the adult mice exposed to marijuana ingredients in adolescence, we found that cortical oscillations were grossly altered, and they exhibited impaired cognitive abilities,” says Dr. Raver. “We also found impaired cognitive behavioral performance in those mice. The striking finding is that, even though the mice were exposed to very low drug doses, and only for a brief period during adolescence, their brain abnormalities persisted into adulthood.”

The scientists repeated the experiment, this time administering marijuana ingredients to adult mice that had never been exposed to the drug before. Their cortical oscillations and ability to perform cognitive behavioral tasks remained normal, indicating that it was only drug exposure during the critical period of adolescence that impaired cognition through this mechanism. The researchers took the next step in their studies, trying to pinpoint the mechanisms underlying these changes and the time period in which they occur.

We looked at the different regions of the brain,” says Dr. Keller. “The back of the brain develops first, and the frontal parts of the brain develop during adolescence. We found that the frontal cortex is much more affected by the drugs during adolescence. This is the area of the brain that controls executive functions such as planning and impulse control. It is also the area most affected in schizophrenia.”

Dr. Keller’s team believes that the results have indications for humans as well. They will continue to study the underlying mechanisms that cause these changes in cortical oscillations. “The purpose of studying these mechanisms is to see whether we can reverse these effects,” says Dr. Keller. “We are hoping we will learn more about schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders, which are complicated conditions. These cognitive symptoms are not affected by medication, but they might be affected by controlling these cortical oscillations.”

Many groups of scientists have studied the brains of teenagers, too. Compared to those who never used pot, the tissue in the brains of young pot users has been shown to exhibit structural changes. Specifically, the white matter (the cells in our brains that connect different areas) is more porous in subjects that began regularly using pot at a young age, a physical state associated with slower mental processing. Gray matter (the cells in the brain responsible for processing information) showed changes in shape and size, alterations that are associated with executive dysfunction, mood issues, and poor memory. In addition, the brains of teenagers who are heavy pot users have lower blood flow, develop abnormal neuron connections, and show inefficient brain activation patterns. All of these physical features are associated with poor memory, attention, impulse control, organization, and time management.

Teenagers who use weed daily have increased rates of depression, anxiety, and psychosis later in life. (Psychosis means someone has lost connection with reality—i.e., they see and/or hear things that don’t exist.), psychosis and heavy pot use in adolescence are linked.

Teens and Dopamine

For the same reason weed makes adults feel good: It releases dopamine into the brain. When you get high, dopamine signals tell your neurons that it feels good and you should do it again. Dopamine does the same thing when you have sex, listen to music you enjoy, or eat junk food. Dopamine is part of the pleasure/reward system in the brain, which is actively developing until adulthood; messing with it during adolescence can cause damage. Decreased dopamine signals in teenage pot smokers’ brains have been observed after prolonged use, meaning getting high becomes more difficult. In other words, the more weed a teen smokes now, the less happy weed will make him or her over time. And without weed, definitely unhappy, for his dopamine levels are low, permanently. It takes the joy of life away. This can make teenagers who use heavily more prone to depression, anxiety, addiction and even suicide..
So What About Adult Weed Users?

After the brain has finished developing, it is not vulnerable since neurodevelopment is basically complete. Toking up at a young age has a different effect on the brain than toking up as an adult. So have no worries, all is good.

McChronalds very strict policy – 21 years and over only- Let me tell you about Ron…

Let me tell you just a few things about Ron, the CEO, CFO, COO, GM, Quality control officer, Chief Buyer, bookkeeper, Picker, packer, shipper man of many hats. He is a very, very busy man (Honestly, he needs a vacation, bad), he had a disaster a few months back, leaving him short staffed (Also feeling betrayal), to say the least. Now, one of the things that sets McChronalds apart from the competition, is the initial phone call you must have with him, personally. One of the major reason’s for the call is to make sure you are at least 21, due diligence, and he has his ways of knowing, from what you say, or answer. You can’t con the man, you can’t fuck around with a guy who has gone through ‘the school of hard knocks’, and has been around the block several times. HE WILL KNOW YOU ARE UNDER 21, PERIOD, in a second. Woe is he the punk who tried to con Ron on the phone, I can almost hear his wrath now, berating the kid, telling him why, from authority, the truths about weed and his young mind. He doesn’t have to take all that extra time on the phone weeding out the brain damaged punks when he is running shorthanded a very busy, challenging business that is  very customer service oriented requiring same day shipping on all orders. He can make a lot more money by turning a blind eye, no vetting call, no registration required, yes, cash is OK.

Now you know why he also has the policy of never shipping to college or university residence’s, those immature, morally fucked up places at times, with most students being under 21. Yep, he wont be part of fucking up a college kids head up for life either. Ron won’t ship to a school address for the same reason as the phone call. Why? Because he cares, it isn’t about the money with him, the business is his passion, he wants to do the right thing, period. He don’t want to be even partially responsible for fucking some kids brains up for life, for money.

Now, all I will say about the competition out there, well, check out their sites, no registration, they take cash, no phone call. What does that tell you my friends? Who is the honorable one, who do you want to do business with.

Ron will never short count you, in fact, weigh your order, I will admit I have a couple of times scaled it, only because by eye, I saw there was extra, and there was. After almost 40 years buying weed, I can eyeball a good 1/4 oz count or a short count. That’s Ron. Any problem you might have, he will rectify it, plus some. The weed; It is what it is, and nothing else, guaranteed. The other sites, they sell B-grade and even C-grade, wtf? Only AAA+ with Ron.

Many others seem to realize that Ron is a busy man, I hear it in the forums when you are understanding why Ron might be a little late on a phone call or email, or whatever, Most of you are understanding and have been cool, you are all good people. Emailing and Phone calls are difficult at times when you are the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, General Manager, Chief Buyer, Quality Assurance officer, Human Resources, Picker, Packer, Shipper, HR manager and 15 more hats and training 2 people to boot, running McChronalds, basically solo. My friends, that’s what sets McChronalds apart from the others. This is why I ask you my friends, to be loyal, to make that 2nd or 5th order because it says to Ron, Thank You bro, for being there for me, for being honorable.

I think that parents have an obligation — to be even more pointed with our children by saying to them: “If you’re tempted to smoke weed, please hold off as long as you possibly can. Your beautiful brain is still developing.”
