Other Sources of THC?
Posted 01 August 2007 - 05:12 PM
I dunno... it just seems pretty strange to me.
I did find on some obscure website that szechuan peppercorns contain small amounts, but I really don't find that too dependable, though ironically the FDA had banned the import of the pepper from the mid 60's to 2005. (Wikipedia)
What are your thoughts?

From 1968 to 2005, the United States Food and Drug Administration banned the importation of Sichuan peppercorns because they were found to be capable of carrying citrus canker (as the tree is in the same family, Rutaceae, as the genus Citrus). This bacterial disease, which is very difficult to control, could potentially harm the foliage and fruit of citrus crops in the U.S. It was never an issue of harm in human consumption. The import ban was only loosely enforced until 2002. In 2005, the USDA and FDA lifted the ban, provided the peppercorns are heated to around 70 degrees Celsius (160 degrees Fahrenheit) to kill the canker bacteria before importation.
Let me just say that I did not intend to make it seem that it was banned because of it's thc content. It was a fault of my own that I did not include that information. I just thought it was ironic that it just happened to also contain small amounts of thc.

I think if it were to be found anywhere, it would probably be in Asia in the more tropical areas... but who knows. Maybe there is and it's just a very well kept secret.... nah.

and thc is a cannabinoid....
if another plant created vast amounts of cannabinoids, wouldnt that plant
have to have some genetic relation to the cannabis plant,
meaning relation to the species...
or be human...hmmm.

Cannabinoids exist in your brain as well though, its just delta 9 THC that is especially psychoactive and unique. Yet without the other cannabinoids in the plant it doesn't have the same effect (see marinol).
Check this out though, from what I can gather on wiki the lineage of cannabis was believed to be something like this.
But now scientists say its in the family of plants that look like this
Kinda just seems like they are looking at plants and guessing by what kinda looks like herb.

I would like to think that cannabis is the only thc producing plant, but if someone could prove me wrong, it would be interesting as fuck..
