Research Shows Cannabis May Help Overactive Bladder

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

The latest research on cannabis shows how cannabigerol, or CBG, may help relieve symptoms of overactive bladder and similar disorders.

Scientists tested bladder contractility in specimens of mouse bladders as well as human bladders, and found CBG reduced contractions. Lowering bladder contractility improves symptoms of those suffering from urinary incontinence. In previous research on cannabis used to treat overactive bladder, a clinical trial on patients with multiple sclerosis and Neurogenic Detrusor Overactivity showed that administration of a high-THC cannabis extract improved urinary incontinence by 25 %.

A 25 % improvement is enough to make anyone’s life noticeably better, but that also came along with the potent psychoactive effect of the high-THC extract. While many cannabis users enjoy the feeling of being high all the time, people who never touched the stuff in their lives may not feel the same way. For this reason doctors have gone to great lengths to investigate other non-psychoactive cannabinoids that are still just as safe and non-toxic as good 'ol THC.

Colorado legislators working to draft marijuana DUI bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER - Driving high and driving drunk carry the same charge in Colorado, and that's a problem for those who want to track the impact, if any, of legalized marijuana on the safety of the state's roads and highways.

It's impossible to break out state-wide statistics about the number of convictions for driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. The charges and convictions are all lumped together under the same impaired driving statute.

That's a problem, says Rep. Jon Keyser, R-Morrison, who will propose a bill in the 2016 legislative session to enable marijuana-related driving offenses to be tracked.

 

"The motivation is really to be able to have a real discussion with real numbers and real data," Keyser said. "If this is a problem we definitely need to address it, but right now we can't even say if it's a problem."

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Round Table Open To The Public

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

pennsylvania john hanger marijuana governor candidateOn August 13, 2015, the Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce will host an open round table regarding the possible legalization of medical cannabis in the state of Pennsylvania.

On Thursday, August 13, 2015, a Medical Cannabis Round Table will be held at 7:00 pm in the auditorium of the Ellwood City Municipal Building. The event, sponsored by the Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce, will present viewpoints from both sides of the issues. The Chamber remains neutral on the topic, but is presenting the information so that individuals and businesses have a better understanding of the issues.

Lori Hilliard, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, explains, “We’ve been approached by various individuals and businesses who have had questions about the issue of medical cannabis and weren’t sure where to go to get accurate information. Earlier this year, Pennsylvania state senators approved State Senate Bill 3, which would legalize marijuana for medical applications. In fact, it passed with a 40-7 vote. It will soon go to the House for approval. There are strict limitations regarding how medical cannabis can be used and how it will be regulated, but many people aren’t sure of the details or how it will be monitored. In order to help people understand what’s happening and how it may affect them, we decided to host a round table.”
