“rock-star kush – seeds”
I saw this post i posted a few years back.. i went through quitea few strains trying to find something that had the kind of smell i was looking for. Well i did finally find a great strain that stinks with the kind of pungeant smell i was looking for. I popped a bagseed i found in a bag of rockstar kush a couple years back and am still growing it today. Im so glad i found a strain that i can stick with without having to switch from strain to strain all the time. It is nice to grow the same strain always as you get to know the strain really good and know what to expect. This rockstar kush comes from medi man and is really a great strain. I have been smoking nothing but rockstar for a couple years, except i did run out recenlt because i moved and didn’t have z room set up until recently, but i can honestly say that i have no problem at all with smoking this same strain every single day and not having a variety. I would rather smokenthe same shit for the rest of my life if i found my old afghi strain again then jump from one weak ass smelless strain to another like i was doing before i got my hands on this rockstar.
I forgot to mention all good on the other beans I order smile emoticon I’m stoked to flower them out. Patiently waiting lol Also, I recently harvest two purple pain killer and it was one of the best strains I’ve ever grown and it had a great yield ! Very potent and dank! Highly impressed ! Thankful for your work on the medicine man.. Anyways Talk soon, it’s like almost 2 here and I gotta be up in few hours lol or I’d probably talk all night haha talk soon man.. And thanks for ur knowledge and really appreciate all u do , Goodnight man!

To stop in and say thanks.. just haven’t had the time. Sorry I don’t have pics..I had 2 females that I kept (only 6 of the seeds made it, probably my fault.) One I gave to somebody who ran it outdoor and loved it..grew with a rare vigor, thaistick style colas that were so leafy and abundant they didn’t turn out well indoors with limited space. The original plant from seed busted one of my RDWC buckets (root mass), the stalk/stump nearly filled solid a 3.75″ net pot by the end. The other I cropped probably a dozen times. Tiny purple extremely frosty nuggets, showed tons of frost at 4 weeks. Looked done at 6. Cured quick due to being so much frost vs. plant material. It didn’t end up making the cut (got some good clones..and mites lol) due to yield and mild terpines but the trichome/kief ratio still beats anything that I have including GG#4 and GGG’s Frost Boss. So even though I got tiny nugs sometimes I miss that stuff..always wanted to break it up on a piece of glass to admire the dusting.

Cannabis and PTSD: Cannabinoids & Trauma Recovery
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological condition that occurs in response to severe or protracted stress, such as experiencing warfare or interpersonal violence (which may be physical, emotional or sexual). Numerous PTSD sufferers self-medicate with cannabis, and several studies indicate potential benefit.
As the name suggests, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) comes as a direct result of experiencing a traumatic event., Symptoms include flashbacks of the traumatic event, avoidance of associated triggers, anxiety, depression, anger and hyper vigilance.
Conventional therapy for PTSD mainly includes psychotherapy, with a focus on cognitive therapy, exposure therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EDMR). Depending on the severity of symptoms, some PTSD sufferers are also prescribed anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.
Global prevalence of PTSD
The US National Comorbidity Survey Replication estimates the lifetime prevalence of PTSD in the USA to be 6.8%. Within this, the lifetime prevalence of PTSD among American men is 3.6%, and among women, 9.7%.
According to a 2019 study published in the European Journal of Psychotraumatology, it is estimated that around 354 million adults worldwide experience PTSD, with 117 million suffering from comorbid PTSD and major depression. These figures are the result of analyses of those affected by war between 1989 and 2015, and who were still alive in 2015. According to this meta-analysis, around 33% of PTSD sufferers will also be diagnosed with major depression.
Not every individual that experiences a traumatic event will go on to develop PTSD. One study determined that 17% of Iraq veterans would go on to develop PTSD, generalised anxiety disorder or depression. Another study estimates that around 25% of children exposed to trauma will go on to develop PTSD. Another concluded that monozygotic (identical) twins have a greater risk of developing PTSD after combat trauma if their twin also suffers from the disorder, pointing to a genetic predisposition.
PTSD and substance dependence
Research has demonstrated a high incidence of substance abuse among those with PTSD. In one study, women in particular showed higher rates of PTSD and substance abuse comorbidity — between 30% and 59%. For women in this category, PTSD is most commonly caused by repetitive childhood physical and/or sexual assault. For men, comorbidity rates are two to three times lower, and usually stem from combat or violence related trauma.
Another small-scale study including 91 participants attending a community based substance abuse program found that up to 52.8% of participants had some form of PTSD. While 37.4% were considered to be sufferers of PTSD, the remaining 15.4% were found to have “possible PTSD”.
Whether cannabis can be truly seen as a treatment for PTSD remains in question, as affected individuals may seek solace in such substances whether or not they are truly effective medications.
Although there has been significant research into substance use among those suffering from PTSD, studies relating to the effectiveness of cannabis as a treatment are relatively sparse. Up until relatively recently, the consensus among the medical community generally was that PTSD was a contributing factor in cannabis use disorders, and little investigation was undertaken into the brain mechanisms by which such disorders develop.
What Are Cannabinoids and What Do They Do?
The role of the endocannabinoid system in PTSD
Understanding of the complexities of the endocannabinoid system has increased in recent years, and the role that it may have to play in regulating the symptoms of PTSD and similar disorders has come into focus. An article published in 2012 noted that stress-tolerant individuals exposed to acute stress in the form of a parabolic flight experiment demonstrated significantly increased endocannabinoid concentration in the plasma. Non-stress-tolerant individuals experienced no increase.
However, these individuals were healthy, and not suffering from any chronic stress condition. PTSD (and other chronic stress) sufferers, on the other hand, showed consistently elevated levels of endocannabinoid concentration compared with non-sufferers, even in ordinary, non-stressful situations. This implies that the endocannabinoid system plays a role in the stress response, but the exact mechanism is still unclear.
Interestingly, in another 2015 article published in Nature Reviews Neuroscience, researchers touched on the role of the endocannabinoid system in several aspects of fear-memory processing. The analysis suggests that “repeated re-exposure to a fear-related stimulus in the absence of the threat increasingly activates endocannabinoid signalling”. The researchers argue that this incessant endocannabinoid signalling may lead to extinction of the fear response.
This research shows a possible biological marker for diagnosing PTSD, which in most cases, is done through questionnaires. While the study itself does not specifically refer to PTSD, it refers to the psychological phenomenon underpinning PTSD: the repeated fear response in the absence of a threat.
Genetic phenotype of CB receptors could increase predisposition to PTSD
Another 2012 study by Alexander Neumeister supports the findings of the Nature Reviews Neuroscience study mentioned above. The article describes the role of the CB1 receptor in the experience and memory of stressful events. Normal endocannabinoid signalling through the receptor assists in extinction of fear, and impaired signalling is associated with a failure to eradicate memories of trauma. This was also linked to chronic anxiety and depression (in animal subjects).
The article also noted that existing medications for PTSD have been implemented “opportunistically” when their benefits were discovered, and that such medications had usually been originally designed for other conditions. Often, such drugs are of limited effectiveness and may occasionally cause serious side-effects.
Overall, there is a common thread in academic literature that there is a link between endocannabinoid signalling, fear processing and the development of PTSD. While PTSD relies on a traumatic event to occur (without the trauma, the condition is not PTSD), there may be a genetic predisposition to the condition.
THC and Nabilone as possible treatment options
Neumeister concluded in his research that THC may provide temporary relief of PTSD symptoms, but long-term use could lead to impairment of CB1 receptor signalling. This could cause an increase in the severity of anxiety, irritability and sleep disturbance in PTSD sufferers.
A 2009 study also investigated the efficacy of a synthetic cannabinoid as an adjunctive treatment for PTSD. An adjunctive therapy is one that is prescribed in addition to a primary medication. In this case, the primary medications were antidepressants and hypnotics, and the synthetic cannabinoid used was Nabilone. This study found that 72% of patients experienced cessation or reduction in nightmares, improvement in sleep time and quality, and a reduction of daytime flashbacks.
Although the results of this study are promising, the small sample size of just 47 individuals means that further research must be done to determine the effectiveness of nabilone. As interest in use of cannabinoids as treatment for PTSD is increasing so rapidly, we are likely to see the results of further research in the future.
