Marijuana compound may slow, halt progression of Alzheimer's

Neuroscientists found that extremely low doses of a compound found in marijuana may slow or halt the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
 
A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease reported that neuroscientists using a cellular model of Alzheimer's found low doses of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) reduced the production of amyloid beta, and prevented abnormal accumulation, which is one of the early signs of the memory-loss disease.
 
“Decreased levels of amyloid beta means less aggregation, which may protect against the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Since THC is a natural and relatively safe amyloid inhibitor, THC or its analogs may help us develop an effective treatment in the future,” said lead author Chuanhai Cao, a neuroscientist and PhD at the Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute and the University of South Florida College of Pharmacy.
 
Neuroscientists also found THC enhanced mitochondrial function which is needed to supply energy, transmit signals and maintain a healthy brain.
 
“THC is known to be a potent antioxidant with neuroprotective properties, but this is the first report that the compound directly affects Alzheimer’s pathology by decreasing amyloid beta levels, inhibiting its aggregation, and enhancing mitochondrial function,” Cao said.
 
The research noted that the therapeutic benefits of THC at low doses appear greater than the associated risks of toxicity and memory impairment.  
 
“Are we advocating that people use illicit drugs to prevent the disease? No,” study co-author Neel Nabar said. “However, these findings may lead to the development of related compounds that are safe, legal, and useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.”
 
As many as 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, with the numbers projected to reach 14 million by 2050, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Washington entrepreneur creates, bottles marijuana-infused soda, coffee

Call it pop, call it soda — it’s all made with weed.
 
A new line of cannabis carbonated beverages brewed by a Washington state entrepreneur promises a different kind of buzz to go along with your sugar rush.
 
“Legal” sparkling sodas infused with marijuana hit shelves at legal weed dispensaries around the state Monday, as did bottles of cold brewed coffee meant for pot aficionados looking for a different kind of edible.
 
 
It could even replace the traditional bottle of wine presented at dinner parties.
 
"It's much more approachable, as opposed to 'Hey, mom and dad, do you want a joint?'" drink creator Adam Stites told KGW-TV.
 
The drinks provide a pot kick, along with natural ingredients.
 
Stites’ company, called Mirth Provisions, provides the first marijuana drinkables to hit the market nearly two months after pot became legal in Washington on July 8. The cold brew coffees will allow you to “take on the day with a smooth buzz and a grin a mile wide,” the company’s website promises of the drink, which contains 20 milligrams of THC, the ingredient in marijuana that gets you stoned.
 
Cherry, Lemon Ginger or Pomegranate provide 10 milligrams each of locally grown cannabis extract with all natural ingredients and are created specifically for different activities, be it “couch, meet butt,” or “riding through the clouds on the back of a mythological beast.”

Federal Government To Grow 30 Times More Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
fed-goverment-to-grow-30-times-more-mjThe federal government has been growing marijuana for multiple decades at the University of Mississippi. The marijuana is grown ‘for research’ and to supply four federal medical marijuana patients. The federal government also owns several patents for marijuana. The sad irony of course being that the federal government prohibits all forms of marijuana outside of their monopoly, and actively enforces marijuana prohibition, even in states that have legalized it in various forms.
 
Recently the federal government decided to ramp up production of marijuana at the University of Mississippi. And they are not just ramping it up a little, they are increasing production more than 3,000%. Per the Federal Register:
 
The DEA received one comment on the notice with request for comments. The commenter supported the adjusted 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana. The DEA appreciates the support for this adjusted 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana which will provide for the estimated scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States.
 
The DEA has taken into consideration the one comment received during the 30-day period and the Administrator has determined, pursuant to Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826), based on all of the above, and for the reasons stated in the May 5, 2014, notice, that the adjusted established 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana to be manufactured in the United States in 2014 to provide for the estimated scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, shall remain as follows:
 
Previously established 2014 quota – 21,000 g. Adjusted 2014 quota – 650,000 g.
 
There isn’t a clear reason why the federal government is ramping up production. For a government who’s official stance is that marijuana doesn’t have any medical value, they sure do plan on producing a lot of marijuana for medical research. It’s beyond time to give up the sham, and reschedule marijuana, or even better, eliminate marijuana prohibition altogether.
