Marijuana May Delay Vision Loss

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-and-vision-lossOne of the most inspiring people I have ever met is a guy named Nelacey Porter. Nelacey is funny, talented, can roll a blunt better than anyone I’ve ever seen, and is an amazing athlete. Nelacey is also blind. Nelacey wasn’t born blind. His vision started deteriorating when he was 11 years old. I met him in college and he would always explain to me that he wished he could go back in time and use cannabis at an earlier age because he thought it would have slowed down the progress of his vision loss.
 
It appears that Nelacey might be right. Per Medical Jane:
 
For years medical marijuana has been used to help treat certain conditions that can cause vision loss. The most common example of this is glaucoma, but it is not the only condition for which cannabis may be beneficial.
 
In fact, a group of researchers from Spain’s University of Alicante published a study earlier this month in the journal Experimental Eye Research that supports this claim. It suggests that cannabinoids may help slow vision loss in the case of retinitis pigmentosa.
 
The marijuana plant never ceases to amaze me. Marijuana is medicine. If you know someone that is suffering from vision loss, you should recommend that they try cannabis. I look forward to more research involving vision loss and marijuana, and hope more states adopt vision loss as an approvable condition for medical marijuana.

If you're trying to quit smoking butts, you're probably familiar with the patches that are sold in order to ween the body off of nicotine. These patches are discreet and are the choice way to quit smoking... But if you're not looking to quit cigarettes but are instead, trying to find a sneaky way to medicate throughout the day, then these new patches are definitely something you want to check out. If you have a prescription for medical marijuana, chances are you can find these patches at your local dispensary.
 
The patches are made by a few different companies. Each one contains a 10mg transdermal patch that the user can put on their skin. There are instructions included but they are very simple. Gently clean the area that you want to place the patch on with isopropyl alcohol and then simply stick the patch on. The makers do recommend that the patch be applied to a venous part of your body, such as the ankles and wrists, so that there is optimum medication happening. With a lifespan of 12 hours, these patches are great for patients who have a long day of work/chemo/or are just feeling not so great.
 
Since a lot of patients can't smoke marijuana due to their illness, products like these THC patches are extremely beneficial. Without the questionable act of smoking involved, patients are able to medicate safely and in secret. They don't have to worry about smoke, smelling like the plant, or randomly setting off smoke alarms. Plus the long lasting effects are great for chronic ailments. And while the patches do contain THC, they don't make the users f

Marijuana And Schizophrenia

Remember how in Reefer Madness, they tried to convince us that cannabis would make us crazy? That, if you chose to indulge in the Devil's Lettuce, you would cackle like a madman and either kill your friends or go off on some sort of sex rampage. Anti-cannabis crusaders have also used the argument that cannabis makes you crazy, with some studies "proving" that cannabis would actually make you crazy. Not until now did anyone think that maybe, possibly, the theory could be reversed.
 
The connection between cannabis and possibly one of the most frightening of all mind effecting afflictions, schizophrenia, has been disputed for years. While those against weed claim that it's clear that pot makes people crazy, a new study released by the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College in London severely deflates the idea that cannabis causes psychosis. In the study, it was shown that a gene related to schizophrenia actually may lead to marijuana use and not the other way around. Robert Power, the man in charge of the study told Reuters in an interview, "We know that cannabis increases the risk of schizophrenia. Our Study certainly does not rule this out, but it suggests that there is likely to be an association in the other direction as well - that a pre-disposition to schizophrenia also increases your likelihood of cannabis use."
 
The official conclusions went as follows; "Although considerable evidence implicates cannabis use as a component cause of schizophrenia, it remains unclear whether this is entirely due to cannabis directly raising risk of psychosis, or whether the same genes that increases psychosis risk may also increase risk of cannabis use. Although directly predicting only a small amount of the variance in cannabis use, these findings suggest that part of the association between schizophrenia and cannabis is due to a shared genetic aetiology."
 
So basically what this says is that they're not sure what came first, the chicken or the egg? Whether or not marijuana causes psychosis is still unclear. Or perhaps there is something else causing both of the problems. Bottom line is that no one is sure if weed will cause a development of schizophrenia. So the next time that someone tries to use that argument that it does, you can tell them that they shouldn't be so sure.
