You'll Never Guess What Marijuana Is Being Blamed for Now

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

We're less than three weeks away from the calendar ticking over to a new year -- a year that very well could be the most important for the marijuana industry to date.

We can certainly look back on some of the milestone events within the marijuana industry over the past two decades and argue that they've been pivotal moments in the advancement of the currently illicit drug. California becoming the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, and both Washington and Colorado legalizing recreational marijuana in 2012 are two events that come to mind. However, the 2016 elections could feature in the neighborhood of a dozen ballot referendums or amendments to legalize recreational marijuana in states where the drug is currently legal for medical use.

For example, California, the most populous state in the country and the one that could arguably have the biggest impact on an eventual legalization of the drug, is expected to offer a referendum for residents to vote on the legalization of the drug for recreational purposes. President Obama has previously suggested that the best way to get the attention of federal lawmakers who believe marijuana legalization is an issue of low importance is to continue to pass recreational and/or medical laws on a state-by-state basis. If the numbers are clearly in favor of legalization, and states demonstrate that they can safely and effectively regulate the drug, Congress may be more likely to act.

'Grandma's magic remedy:' Mexico's medical marijuana secret

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Mexico City (AFP) - When her legs ache, this Mexican grandmother rubs them with marijuana-infused alcohol. She is well aware the homemade remedy defies the country's cannabis ban, but her family has used the concoction to treat ailments since she was a child, handing it down the generations.

 

"I really have a lot of faith in it," said the slender 53-year-old, a housewife and amateur dancer who spoke to AFP about her cannabis use on condition of strict anonymity.

"When I'm very tired, I spread it on my legs, feet and body. It's really good. I can go without salt but not without marijuana with alcohol. My grandmother used it," she said, holding a plastic bottle filled with the leaves and liquid.

In turn, she used the family remedy to care for her three children, and three grandchildren. For the kids, a piece of cotton soaked in the liquid is placed in the bellybutton to fight fevers. When they're congested, the alcohol is rubbed on the chest and back.

Largest Study Ever On Marijuana And Epilepsy Shows Effectiveness Of Cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, December, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

epilepsy marijuanaMarijuana has been proven to be tremendously effective when it comes to treating epilepsy. It seems like most of the time that I see medical marijuana being talked about on the news or in print media, it’s almost always talking about how CBD can help epilepsy, with countless success stories. There are a lot of uses for medical marijuana, all of which I support. But I especially support cannabis for the use of epilepsy because of how many personal success stories I’ve personally witnessed.

The largest study ever conducted on marijuana and epilepsy recently released results, and as expected, the results were favorable to using medical marijuana to treat epilepsy. Per The Joint Blog:

The largest study ever conducted on cannabis and epilepsy was presented this week at theAmerican Epilepsy Society’sannual meeting in Philadelphia.

For the study, 313 children from 16 different epilepsy centers around the United States were put on a regimen of the cannabis compound cannabidiol. After a three-month period, 261 of these children had the amount of convulsive seizures (also called grand mal or tonic-clonic seizures) they experience reduced by an average of nearly half, while experiencing little to no side effects.

In addition, some patients experienced an 100% reduction in seizures; “In the subsequent periods, which are very encouraging, 9 percent of all patients and 13 percent of those with Dravet Syndrome epilepsy were seizure-free”, says Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist at theNew York University Langone Medical Center, noting that; “Many have never been seizure-free before”.
