Canada Court Rules In Favor Of Marijuana Edibles And Topicals

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-edibles-and-topicals-canadaMarijuana infused products are not new, but they are certainly growing in popularity. Marijuana edibles like brownies and cookies are a great way to medicate. They don’t require inhaling anything, and the effects can be felt for a lot longer compared to inhaling vapor or smoke. Marijuana topicals are very effective at treating arthritis and tendinitis. I have bad tendinitis, and the only thing that works for me is marijuana topicals. Pharmaceuticals, over the counter or prescription, have done nothing for me.
 
Health Canada allows medical marijuana to be consumed by patients in Canada, however, the rules only allow consumption and sales of dried marijuana. That is, until a B.C. Court of Appeals judge ruled prohibition of marijuana infused products to be unconstitutional. Per CBC:
 
In her written reasons, Justice Risa Levine said this specification “is arbitrary and cannot be justified in a free and democratic society.”
 
Levine went on to state that when patients choose to use edible forms of marijuana, it “was a matter of necessity, or put another way, the restriction to dried marijuana interfered with their physical or psychological integrity.”
 
I have no idea why marijuana infused products were banned in the first place in Canada. Marijuana is medicine, whether it be in smoke, vapor, edible, or topical form. If a person is qualified as a medical marijuana patient, then they should be allowed to consume medical marijuana in whatever form they choose. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is harmful to patients. I’m glad the B.C. Court did the right thing.

Big Business's Marijuana Misconceptions

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
5-mj-misconceptions
Businesses are absolutely going to try to corporatize cannabis. They will attempt to take over the industry as is their fashion and push the "little guy" right out of the door. Stoners worry about the mom and pop operations that they have come to love so much. But as always, Big Business (much like Big Pharma) doesn't really care. It's all about the green to them... And by green, you know that I'm not talking about good old Mary Jane. These fat cats want to make money, not help people. And to make matters worse, they don't really understand what cannabis is all about.
 
- Cannabis is not tobacco. That's definitely clear. While they can be ingested in similar ways, the two substances couldn't be any different. While tobacco promotes lung, throat, and mouth cancer, marijuana has actually shown traits of anti-cancer properties and hemp oil has become one of the main ways to help chemotherapy patients. Tobacco claims the lives of around 480,000 people a year, far more than cannabis's measly 0 deaths, and even blowing alcohol right out of the water (88,000 deaths per year). Weed and tobacco aren't even close to being the same substance and should not be treated as such.
 
-  Cannabis is also not alcohol. Alcohol has very different effects when ingested as compared to cannabis. Both substances have survived prohibition which makes them both rock solid industries. But alcohol is used to escape problems most of the time, sometimes leading the user down a slippery slope that leads to alcoholism. Other problems stem from this, including cancer. The idea that cannabis and alcohol are totally different is only furthered by the fact that Washington state put their state Liquor Control Board in charge of handling the cannabis model and the state has been a complete disaster in regards to the marijuana set up.
 
- Growing cannabis sucks. It's true. It does. The plants become like children to the grower and when one gets sick, the world stops. Cannabis may be considered a weed but it definitely does not grow like one. To produce the large, fluffy, knock-you-off-your-seat buds that most growers aim for, there needs to be a lot of love and care that goes in to the growing process. Chances are you will not get rich off of growing cannabis and will instead spend your time trying to figure out how to pay your incredibly expensive light bill. To be successful in the marijuana business, you must think of it like the Gold Rush. People didn't really get rich off of gold... But the people who sold the tools used to obtain the gold made bank.
 
- People of all ages, races, careers, and backgrounds smoke weed. This is not a youth culture anymore. The marijuana community consists of parents, friends, families, grandparents, children, cousins, uncles, aunts, the librarian at your college, or the old store clerk that you paid for gasoline from. There is no "typical" pothead anymore. We are everywhere and people have no idea. No longer is weed a college outlet to hard drugs. It's our medicine, our pass time, our miracle plant.
 
- If you're going to talk about cannabis, you should probably know about cannabis. There are some people who bash the plant and don't even really know what they're talking about. In this day and age, there are still people who try to get away with using the "gateway drug" theory. No, we're far beyond that now. The technology surrounding cannabis is evolving so fast that you'll miss something if you don't pay the utmost attention. Those that attempt to involve themselves in the cannabis world without brushing up their knowledge first usually fail... Hard. Know the laws, know your product, and know what you stand for

La Confidential - Hybrid

LA Confidential is a commercial seed strain that captures the genetics of OG Kush. An Afghan strain grown from clones, OG Kush first became popular in the Los Angeles market in the 1990s, and then became world famous as California rappers like Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill name-checked it in their songs. OG Kush offers a hash-like experience from reefer: a resinous smoke, deep and spicy-sweet like nutmeg, that draws the smoker into a lush, slightly trippy dreamland. While "Authentic OG Kush" may be hard to find if you're not a rap star, DNA's LA Confidential brings the secrets of this celebrity smoke to the market.

Man Uses Cannabis Oil For Cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-oil-used-to-treat-man-who-has-cancer
Success stories are the best way to keep people positive about marijuana. Especially those stories that involve the scarier of the afflictions, such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and cancer. By reading the success that some patients have had once they begin to utilize the power of cannabis, we can point other patients in the right direction, towards a cure that really does work. These stories will also hopefully help people to see that cannabis is 100% beneficial to human life and we should be cherishing the plant, rather than sticking it in the shadows.
 
Trevor Smith is a 54 year old British man with three children. Back in 2012, Smith was told that he had bladder cancer. To make matters worse, the doctors informed this poor man that he would be dead in less than 24 months if surgery was not immediately performed to remove the cancerous nodes that had covered his bladder, prostate, and lymph nodes. With such an invasive surgery and the prospect of losing some of his organs, Smith decided to take matters in to his own hands and began researching alternative medicines on his computer. He stumbled across the cannabis oil cure and was immediately interested. Smith then made the choice to try oil rather then undergo the potentially life threatening surgery.
 
Ten weeks after Smith was supposed to have the surgery, the doctors say that Smith has gone in to remission, even though they previously warned him of imminent death if he did not go through surgery. Regardless, Smith has now been cancer free for over a year now and he claims that his life is owed to the healing properties of cannabis oil. Now that this 54 year old knows the positive benefits of this treatment, he is insisting that more people be aware of the medical cannabis benefits that most people turn a blind eye to.
 
Smith and his wife actually wrote a book to chronicle the events that they went through while using the oil. Over ten weeks, Smith ingested 60 grams of cannabis oil a day. The oil regimen was paired with a healthy diet and vitamin supplements that had also been recommended as an alternative to surgery. However, Smith had attempted this method without the oil prior to his discovery of the substance and the cancer was still managing to spread. He and his wife, 55 year old Carol, were not fond users of cannabis before this incident but they have had their minds drastically changed by the increase of life that Smith now possesses.
 
Studies produced by the National Cancer Institute state that there were anti-tumor effects contained in cannabinoids. When cannabinoids were given to rats and mice, the size of their cancerous tumors shrunk drastically. This happens because the cannabinoids inhibit the growth of new cancer cells, invasive tumors, and the development of new cells that are needed for cancerous tumor growth. The end findings of these studies done by the National Cancer Institute lead to one statement; cannabinoids appear to destroy only tumor cells, while not effecting the healthy cells present in the body, plus offer a form of protection against future attacks of cancerous tumors. The evidence is clear. Cannabis can help the sick and it's time to stop oppressing it.
