Medical marijuana patients ask review panel to add post-traumatic stress disorder to Michigan law

trying-to-get-ptsd-added-to-mi-rulesLANSING, MI -- Lillith Gwener survived sexual and physical abuse as a child, but she couldn't make it through a PG-13 movie this week without shaking and sobbing.
 
Gwener, 46, has lived most of her life with post-traumatic stress disorder, and her symptoms can be triggered by a variety of stimuli. Wednesday night, a violent scene in "The Butler" set her off.
 
"You're always in fight or flight," she said. "You're always afraid. Like me going to see this movie last night. I'm sitting in a movie and all of a sudden I'm shaking, I'm hyperventilating and I'm going through a pure anxiety attack."
 
Gwener was one of roughly 20 patients, activists and entrepreneurs who testified Thursday afternoon at a public meeting of the Michigan Marihuana Review Panel, which is considering a citizen petition to add PTSD to the list of debilitating conditions suitable for treatment under the state's voter-approved law.
 
The Holland resident is certified to use medical marijuana for chronic pain, but she said the medication also has proved effective for her PTSD and insomnia.
 
"It gives me a moment between the event -- the trigger -- and what my brain does. It lets me take that minute and realize, 'Hey, this is just a movie. I'm not under attack.'"

New Study Finds Cannabis May Provide Treatment For Skin Diseases

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-good-for-skin-disesesA new study, recently published online in the British Journal of Pharmacology, details how cannabinoids can play a role in the treatment of skin diseases.
 
Researchers looked at the impact of phytocannabinoids (plant-derived cannabinoids, rather than synthetic counterparts) on epigenetic regulation of skin differentiation genes.
 
The study found that both cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG), “significantly reduced the expression of all genes tested via increased DNA methylation for keratin 10 gene”.
 
The CBD was found to reduce keratin 10 mRNA through stimulating type-1 cannabinoid (CB1) receptors, while the CBG was found to act through a secondary method that did not engage the CB1 or CB2 receptors of keratinocytes (HaCaT cells). It was also revealed that cannabidiol increased global DNA methylation levels.
 
The study concludes that cannabis could act as a primary treatment for epidermal ailments:
 
“These findings identify the phytocannabinoids cannabidiol and cannabigerol as transcriptional repressors that can control cell proliferation and differentiation, suggesting (especially for cannabidiol) a possible exploitation as lead compounds to be used in the development of novel therapeutics for skin diseases.”
 
This report was conducted by researchers at the University of Teramo, the Campus Bio-Medico University and the Santa Lucia Foundation, all located in Italy.
