REVIEW The Prometheus Pocket Pipe by PYPTEK



We all know the chilling sound of cracking and breaking glass. My experience has been that most of my breakage was the result of a tip-over or a short drop from a coffee table. Sure, I’ve knocked a couple off the kitchen counter-top and had pieces crushed or broken in transit, but it’s the simple little tips and drops that have done the most damage.

The glass Prometheus Pocket Pipe parts would probably not withstand a drop from a hot air balloon or being thrown from a moving vehicle but the aircraft grade aluminum exoskeleton can save you grief in quite a few less extreme situations. Because the glass pathway and bowl pieces are held snuggly within the exoskeleton by shock absorbing rubber gaskets the Pocket Pipe has an added advantage over an unprotected glass piece. 

The all glass path of the Pocket Pipe hits nice and smooth while preserving the taste of the smoke. The convenient carb helps the Pocket Pipe deliver a bigger hit than expected. The large glass bowl piece makes this pipe great for sharing and the silicone Save A Bowl band makes it a truly pocketable pipe.

Not only is this pipe aesthetically pleasing with a good substantial feel of quality, but the well thought out engineering is obvious. The Pocket Pipe disassembles quickly for easy cleaning and the easy to clean or replace screen is positioned precisely to not only to keep burning embers out of your mouth but also to keep the screen away from the flame preserving taste and enjoyment.

The Prometheus Pocket pipe is available in five colors (Black, Blue, Green, Red and Purple) with several choices of concentrate attachments. You might as well go to www.pyptek.com and check out all the accessories like Titanium nails and Oil kits.

The Prometheus Titan, Pocket Pipe and Nano are all Proudly made in the U.S.A. and are available online at www.pyptek.com as well as stores and outlets nationwide. Visit the Store Locator and find Prometheus Pipes near you.


MMJ Medicinal Marijuana vs Lupus


Cannabis is effective against lupus for several reasons. Many of the anti-inflammatory benefits it delivers are closely related to the relief gained by rheumatoid arthritis sufferers who medicate with the herb. Chiefly, marijuana is a very effective analgesic (pain killer) and anti-inflammatory agent. Because the inflammation associated with lupus can produce considerable pain in the hands and knees, cannabis can both treat the source of the symptom — the inflammation and swelling — while also decreasing one of the main symptoms — pain.

Some lupus patients report gaining the most efficacy from their symptoms from strains and extracts of cannabis that are high in the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol). Others claim relief from juicing the leaves of cannabis plants, with CBD-rich strains being indicated as more therapeutic. Most strains and concentrates of cannabis are extremely effective at dealing with the nausea experienced by some lupus patients. Those suffering from insomnia should consider smoking or vaporizing a potent indica before sleep.

The fact that lupus sufferers gain the greatest relief from cannabis strains high in CBD is no surprise. The disease affects the immune system, the areas of the body in which the greatest number of CB2 receptors are found. CB2 receptors are the microscopic chemical parking spaces located throughout the body that feature what researchers label a “high binding affinity” for the CBD cannabinoid molecule. THC, the cannabinoid most responsible for the psychoactive effect of cannabis that’s so great for depression and PTSD, binds with a different cannabinoid receptor, CB1, which is found mostly in the brain and nervous system.

Because so many lupus patients suffer from skin conditions, the use of cannabis topicals is one of the most effective treatments for varieties and symptoms of this disease that affect the epidermis. This is especially true based on the stigma of highly visible skin conditions in western cultures that value physical beauty. Topicals and the improvement of skin quality is also an approach that considers psychological, emotional, and self-esteem issues, especially in young and middle aged women typically afflicted with lupus.

Conventional pharmaceutical treatments from lupus include steroids and immunosuppressants, such as methotrexate. In some patients, methotrexate can cause pulmonary fibrosis, among many other negative and severe side effects. Many drugs used to treat lupus also result in extreme nausea and abdominal cramping.

Cannabis, on the contrary, conveys no severe or negative side effects, unless one considers an improved mood, an appetite, and better sleep undesired results of one’s medicine. Given the extreme efficacy of cannabis for inflammation and pain, especially top-shelf strains high in CBD — and the almost complete lack of negative side effects from the herb — one must question the moral and ethical validity of the anti-cannabis stance of the medical establishment.

In some cases, chemotherapy (and, specifically, a pharmaceutical drug called cyclophosphamide [Cytoxan] that is also used to treat cancer) is used to treat patients suffering from lupus. This avenue of therapy brings a slew of negative and controversial side effects to lupus patients, including severe nausea and vomiting, hair loss, lack of energy, and depression, among many others.

THC Tetrahydrocannabinol vs Alzhemer's Disease


Alzheimer’s disease may now be added to a list of diseases with promising treatment from cannabis compounds, a new study from the Salk Institute says.

While there has been research and trials to use compounds to treat chronic pain, cancers, epilepsy, and other diseases and illnesses, this laboratory study is the first of its kind to test tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a main component in marijuana, against the plaque buildup of the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

The researchers took human neurons that they grew in a lab and altered them so that they created the plaque buildup (comprised of proteins such as beta-amyloid). The researchers then subjected the neurons to amounts of THC and other marijuana compounds.

What they found was that not only did the THC cause a breakdown of the protein buildup, but a reduction in inflammation in the cells. ​Inflammation is bad because it makes it harder for your neurons to communicate with one another correctly.


"Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer's, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells," says Salk Professor David Schubert, the senior author of the paper said in a statement.

This study is also novel because the research also provides a stronger link between protein buildup and the inflammation of the neurons. Some past hypotheses had thought that other immune-like cells had been inflamed, and not the neurons themselves.

The researchers believe that the THC was able to reduce the protein buildup and inflammation by working in the brain’s endocannabinoid receptors, which are naturally occurring in the body. Scientists had already known that exercise engages these receptors, and physical activity can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Schubert and his fellow researchers had found in a previous study that the endocannabinoid receptors were involved with the removal of protein buildup and inflammation when testing a new drug. The researchers then decided to investigate the relationship with THC and Alzheimer’s plaque.


Much more study must be conducted before a causal link can be suggested between THC and beta amyloid, the researchers say, including human clinical trials. These exploratory laboratory models are just the beginning.
