About me

Not dead. Gratitude to all for caring. Might re-emerge sometime in a different form.

I would also like to know if you are OK.

How's it going? Are you OK?

Yes. If there is no doi don't worry about converting the PMID (you can't). Just put it at the end of the cite :)

(on MDMA).

As for your serotonergic psychedelics point, well, it's a good point. I was actually thinking about it the other day. I will discuss the matter with the team and get back to you :)

Just wanted to say I've been loving your edits so far dude. Congrats on being made Scholar!

herewith you are being promoted to being a scholar. This grants you special rights, including editing restricted articles like Heroin and Fentanyl. The decision is based on a review of your contributions, which we have found to be of high quality. We don't usually promote any contributor in such a short timeframe - and we hope that this trust meets responsibility.

Thank you for being a contributor. Together, we can save many. Everyday.

"Under normal conditions, THC appears to passively diffuse from fat back into blood, thus explaining its long elimination half-life. However it is possible that under conditions of enhanced fat metabolism (lipolysis), THC might be released from fat at much higher concentrations than normal."

"We have also received recent anecdotal forensic reports of high THC levels in the blood of ex-cannabis users who have lost significant body weight immediately prior to test sampling. Stress and food deprivation (FD) are reliable promoters of lipolysis, and this can be largely ascribed to activation of the sympathetic nervous system (Meisner and Carter, 1977; Palou et al., 1981; Nonogaki, 2000). Activation of the sympathetic nervous system increases the release of hormones such as adrenaline and adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), which in turn interact with adipocyte membrane-bound receptors such as β-adrenoceptors and melanocortin receptors (MC) that stimulate hormone-sensitive lipases (HSL) to hydrolyse triglycerides into free fatty acids (FFA) and glycerol (Meisner and Carter, 1977; Langin, 2006)."

"Collectively the data obtained in the present study demonstrate that lipolysis significantly enhances the release of THC from fat tissue resulting in increased levels in the blood. The lipolytic agent ACTH enhanced the release of THC from adipocytes previously treated in vitro with THC. This effect correlated with ACTH-induced lipolysis. Similarly, ACTH enhanced the release of THC from ex vivo adipocytes of rats that were repeatedly pretreated with systemic injections of THC. Complementary in vivo experiments showed that systemic ACTH or 24 h of FD both increased the blood concentrations of THC and its metabolite THC-COOH in rats pretreated in vivo with THC."

^^ From the source I found, if you can find a better one feel free to change it! And thank you for taking the time to check these things out, it's a pretty small group of people making edits and yours are really worthwhile, coherent, and useful (:

P.S. - never wish me opioids, I'm a recovering heroin addict (: I appreciate the sentiment though

above the physical/chemical classes I meant. From the most abstract to the most specific, is the idea :)
