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.

Georgia Senate Approves Bill To Legalize Medical Marijuana Oil

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
mj-oil-to-be-approved-by-georgia-senateGeorgia’s Senate has given unanimous approval to House Bill 885, a proposal to legalize cannabis oil for medical purposes. The measure passed the state’s House of Representatives earlier this month with an 171 to 4 vote.
 
Under the bill, academic medical centers in the state would be permitted to produce low-THC cannabis oil, which they would be authorized to distribute to those with cancer, glaucoma and seizures. The measure would also provide protection from arrest for anyone in possession of cannabis oil that was obtained from another state, as long as they have a recommendation from a physician.
 
Advocates of the measure acknowledge that it doesn’t go far enough (the whole plant, not just low-THC cannabis oil, should be legal), it’s still a major step in the right direction, and will help thousands of people in the state.
 
The bill, sponsored by Representative Allen Peake and supported by the Medical Association of Georgia, now heads back to the House for one final vote, before going to the governor.

A very sweet, earthy strain that is almost pure Indica. Bubba Kush provides an intense and relaxing high that starts in your head and moves down into your body. It is a cross between the two popular strains Bubble Gum and Kush, and distinct enough to earn its own name.

CBD Legality

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 21st 2014 by THCFinder

When people usually think of CBD, they associate it with THC and automatically think that CBD is illegal, since the two substances come from the same plant. Since CBD is the active ingredient in marijuana that makes the user feel less pain and that also fights disease. It is extremely powerful and a huge asset to human life but like I said before, there are a lot of people who believe this healing substance to be illegal. This isn't the case, however, and CBD is legal in all fifty states, letting patients who can benefit from it get their hands on the medicine without worrying about police tracking them down and arresting them.
 
Since the CBD that is available in states where cannabis is still illegal is derived from hemp oil, it is not classified as a drug. It contains no psychoactive qualities and give the user no side effects, other then the release from their pain and suffering. CBD is present in hemp plants and the oil can be produced to make medicine that everyone can purchase and use. The law states that CBD that comes from marijuana plants with a 3% or higher THC level is still a schedule one drug, yet CBD that is derived from hemp plants (or plants containing less then 3% THC) is completely legal. Slightly confusing, but the laws are still new and hopefully they'll become less cloudy as time passes.
 
If you're interested in adding CBD in to your daily routine, that's great! Ingesting this compound not only fights diseases like cancer, arthritis, and epilepsy but it also helps to cure headaches, nausea, and menstrual cramps. There are multiple ways to get a decent dose of CBD a day, for those in medical states and those who aren't;
 
The oil especially is a great help to those suffering. It can be found through various outlets on the web in a few different forms. First is Real Scientific Hemp Oil, which comes in a small applicator and is ingested orally. The next is the "high-less" vaporizer cartridge, which fits in a vape pen and is great for the person on the go who may suffer from headaches. There's also vaporizer hemp oil available as well. But brace yourself... If you're not local to a medical state, the prices of this oil can get extremely expensive. Hemp oil can be added to food, put in to drinks, or taken in a capsule form.
 
Making CBD tinctures are another way to get a good dose of this healing substance. They are typically taken under the tongue and are absorbed through the saliva glands, directly in to the user's blood steam, providing very quick relief.  These are possible to make at home on your own but the ones that can be ordered usually contain higher, concentrated doses of the desired effect. Plus, a lot of the tinctures that can be bought are flavored, making them much more enjoyable for those that don't like the kinds made with alcohol.
 
Capsules can actually be filled with two different substances when it comes to CBD. One is the oil and the other is the kind which is filled with powdered formula. These capsules have no negative side effects and are perfect for those who are constantly anxious but need to go about their day. The CBD doesn't hinder the user's ability to function so you'll feel better and be able to go about your day. The capsules come in varying milligram doses of CBD and those in medical states should investigate at their local clinic if they'd like more options.
 
Suffering from muscle pain? You can purchase hemp infused topical ointments that are great for muscle aches, headaches, rashes, and burns. Some ointments can only be purchased in medical states but others can be bought online, 100% legally. Topical ointments are great for those that don't really care for other methods or perhaps this just works for them. Again, since the CBD comes from hemp oil, these products can be ordered without fear of negative legal repercussions. It's very important to incorporate CBD in to your daily routine, as the substance is not only great for treating already present illnesses, it can prevent new ones from setting in as well.
