Colorado rejects medical marijuana use for PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Citing scant research, Colorado health officials voted Wednesday against adding post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of ailments eligible for treatment with medical marijuana.

The 6-2 vote came despite a recommendation from the Colorado Chief Medical Officer and a panel of physicians to make PTSD the first condition added to Colorado's medical pot eligibility list in 15 years. Board members said they weren't swayed by the recommendation because studies on using pot for PTSD are lacking.

"We can't have physicians counseling people in favor of it because we don't have data to show it's correct," said Jill Hunsaker-Ryan, one of the board members who voted no.

The vote was the third time the board has rejected petitions to add PTSD to the list. About five dozen PTSD sufferers attended the hearing, some loudly jeering. A few were asked to leave.

"They just told every patient here, 'We don't care about you,'" said patient advocate Teri Robnett after the vote.

Colorado allows adults over 21 to buy recreational pot, with no doctor's recommendation needed. But medical pot is taxed at 2.9 percent, compared to at least 19 percent for recreational pot.

UFCW Praises Passage Of Marijuana Regulation Bill By California Senate Committees

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

united commercial food workers ucfw marijuanaUnited Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Western States Council Executive Director Jim Araby has made the following statement on the approval of AB 266 (Bonta/Cooley/Jones-Sawyer) by the Senate Health and Senate Governance and Finance Committees today. The UFCW is the only union in California representing cannabis industry workers, with 1,200 members statewide.

“Licensing and training go hand in hand with public safety. That’s why medical cannabis workers have come together to advocate for standards in their industry, just like other health care professionals. AB 266 improves workforce training and professional standards and, importantly, protections for workers when they speak up for patient safety.

“Although consumers increasingly believe that medical cannabis is harmless, few have expertise in varieties, dosages and other critical information needed to consume cannabis products safely. Cannabis workers are leading the charge for workforce training and licensing provisions contained in AB 266.”

Recent studies have uncovered improperly labeled edible cannabis and high levels of pesticides in some medical cannabis products in California. The regulations contained in AB 266 will provide significant help in correcting these unacceptable threats to consumer safety. A licensed, professionalized workforce is a consumer’s first line of defense every day. Regulators cannot always be there.

Juicing Raw Marijuana Yielding Positive Results

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

One young woman, diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis three years ago, was fed up with the side effects and ineffectiveness of the liver-destroying anti-rheumatic drugs her doctors were giving her so she decided to take matters into her own… blender.

Katie Marsh’s daily relief is a smoothie with fruit, yogurt and thawed, juiced cannabis.

After trying other natural anti-inflammatory remedies like turmeric and ginger, her pain continued to worsen and she became more and more debilitated.

“It got so bad that I had trouble getting out of bed, getting off and on the toilet and even dressing myself,” according to a Fox News article.

Upon a friend’s advice, Ms. Marsh decided to try juicing marijuana. She soon sought out Dr. William Courtney, co-founder of the International Cannabis Foundation a leading expert in raw dietary cannabis.

“When it’s consumed as a leafy green vegetable, you get the whole profile of the plant,” said Dr. Courtney.
