Can You Overdose On Marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
overdosing-on-cannabisFatal cannabis overdose in humans is a thing that simply doesn’t exist. The scarcity of cannabinoid receptors in the medullary nuclei (the part of the brain that controls respiratory and cardiovascular functions) is largely the reason why there have been no reports of fatal cannabis overdose in humans,
 
Nevertheless, heavy doses can produce certain unpleasant reactions. In some rare cases, moderate doses could result in acute panic reactions characterized by anxiety, paranoia, self-consciousness, loss of self-control, wild racing thoughts, and disorientation. Fortunately, these reactions tend to subside with a few hours with no medical treatment required. Sufferers need to be reassured that their pain or discomfort will be brief. More often than not, you’ll experience both pleasant and unpleasant episodes in alternating waves as thoughts ebb and flow.
 
Of course, panic reactions are most likely to occur in novice users who have tried excessive doses in unpleasant surroundings. First-time users should be especially careful and start out with small amounts of cannabis to allow themselves plenty of time to experience the drug comfortably.

Occasionally, marijuana can produce physical symptoms that are quite unpleasant. For instance, some individuals have experience headaches, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting all of which might be spurred by the mental anxiety incurred from a large dose. Some people actually experience these symptoms regularly almost like an allergic reaction.
 
Frequently, however, adverse physical reactions result directly from an overdose. Heavy overdoses can be remarkably unpleasant and temporarily debilitating, but never fatal. Symptoms range from anxiety, panic, excitement, hallucinations, and a racing heartbeat at the beginning to immobility, torpor, and even unconsciousness after a while. Again, though, the effects are all temporary and tend to wear off after a few hours of sleep with no antidote or medication required.
 
Overdoses are less likely with inhaled marijuana than with oral ingestion, because smokers will be able to sense instantly when they have had enough or when the psychoactive content of the drug is too high. Occasionally smokers might step “one toke over the line” prior to sensing that they are too high and need to stop. Oral doses are harder to quantify because you can eat several “doses” of brownie and not feel any different until an hour or two later.
 
Cannabis poisonings were considerably more common at the turn of the 20th century when medicinal preparations would be dispensed in potent tonics containing hundreds of doses per fluid ounce.

Prosecutors Can't Go After Family Treating Child's Seizures With Marijuana Extract, Judge Rules

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
family-treating-child-with-cannabis-oilFive-year-old Zander Welton was able for the first time to hold a fork on his own and sleep through the night last year, after his doctor treated his seizures with a medical marijuana extract. But after several county attorneys in Zander’s state of Arizona threatened felony prosecution for using the marijuana in extract form, Zander’s parents stopped giving him the treatment.
 
An Arizona court ruled Friday that Zander’s parents could start treating him again, finding that Arizona’s medical marijuana law allows consumption of the plant in extract form.
 
Zander’s parents turned to medical marijuana after pharmaceuticals and even two brain surgeries failed to heal Zander. Like many children with debilitating seizures, Zander was unable to perform even simple tasks like speaking and running. After taking the marijuana extract, Zander’s parents say in their lawsuit that he made “striking developmental progress.” But the treatment works best for young children when in extract form. Heating it — when smoked or infused in a tea — releases the plant’s psychoactive properties, which is precisely what his parents are trying to avoid. And simply crushing up the dried leaves and putting it in his food has proven difficult to ingest and imprecise.
 
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery had argued that the 2010 medical marijuana law passed by ballot initiative prohibits “concentrating the chemicals in the marijuana flower” and had threatened to prosecute those like the Weltons who use the extract. But Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Katherine Cooper concluded not only that the statute contains no such prohibition, but that “[c]onstraining patients’ medical marijuana options contradicts the stated purpose of the AMMA [Arizona Medical Marijuana Act] — to ‘protect patients with debilitating medical conditions . . . from arrest and prosecution, criminal and other penalties and property forfeiture if such patients engage in the medical use of marijuana.’ ” The ruling is what is known as a “declaratory judgment,” meaning it clarifies the law, rather than rules on a particular prosecution.

Alabama lawmakers approve medical marijuana measure

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, March, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
approving-mmj-measure(Reuters) - A medical marijuana bill unanimously passed both the Alabama House and Senate on Thursday and is headed to the desk of Gov. Robert Bentley, who has said he will sign it into law.
 
The measure makes it legal to possess only a prescribed medical grade extract known as CBD or cannabidiol, which is non-intoxicating.
 
The U.S. Congress in 1972 deemed the oil to have no accepted medical use and banned it.
 
However, some studies have shown it to be useful in treating a number of conditions, including seizures, and it has been legalized for use in 20 states, according to the Medical Marijuana ProCon website.
 
Called Carly's Law, the bill in Alabama originated to help control violent seizures suffered by a toddler with a severe neurological disorder.
 
The girl's family won the backing of Republican state Rep. Mike Ball, sponsor of the bill, and the governor, who has indicated his support.
 
The bill includes $1 million in funding for a neurology research project into cannabidiol oil at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
 
"UAB will undertake research into the mechanisms underlying cannabidiol to learn more about its function and effect on seizures," said David Standaert, chairman of the university's Department of Neurology.
 
The extract is low in tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive compound that gives users the feeling of being high.
