Trichomes Are the Key to Most Potent Cannabis Flowers
Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 29, 2020 by Mike Adams - Cannabis Now

For the diehard cannabis connoisseur, one whose only mission in life is the quest for the eternal buzz, tracking down that one marijuana strain that really kicks them in the boo-boo can be tough. It means visiting one dispensary after another, where, often, none of the staff ever seems willing to break out the secret stash from the back.

Antibodies against polyethylene glycol in healthy subjects and in patients treated with PEG-conjugated agents
Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 29, 2020 by Taylor & Francis - Abstract

In contrast to the accepted general assumption that polyethylene glycol (PEG) is non-immunogenic and non-antigenic, animal studies clearly showed that uricase, ovalbumin and some other PEGylated agents can elicit antibody formation against PEG (anti-PEG).

Scientists build whole functioning thymus from human cells
Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 14, 2020 by Scienmag

Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute and University College London have rebuilt a human thymus, an essential organ in the immune system, using human stem cells and a bioengineered scaffold. Their work is an important step towards being able to build artificial thymi which could be used as transplants. The...

Fragments of energy - not waves or particles - may be the fundamental building blocks of the universe
Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 13, 2020 by Larry M. Silverberg - The Conversation

Matter is what makes up the universe, but what makes up matter? This question has long been tricky for those who think about it - especially for the physicists. Reflecting recent trends in physics, my colleague Jeffrey Eischen and I have described an updated way to think about matter.

Revolver Exclusive Study: COVID-19 Lockdowns Over 10 Times More Deadly Than Pandemic Itself
Science & Medicine Blogs · Oct 24, 2020 by Revolver

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization officially classified COVID-19 as a global pandemic. In the following weeks, the countries of the world began implementing previously unthinkable measures to prevent the spread of the virus. In the United States, some states quickly locked down nearly all physical businesses, venues, and public areas.
