DOH Report: New York Should Expand Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

While the medical marijuana law in New York is often considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, the state could soon be persuaded to expand the reach of the program based on recommendations outlined in a new report from the state’s leading health agency.

Earlier this week, the New York State Health Department published a two-year analysis of the Compassionate Care Act, starting from the time the bill was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo. It insists the program is functioning better than other states with similar laws in place, at least in terms of the number of physicians and patients who are registered for participation.

Life Hack: Smoke Weed to Beat the Summer Heat… Really

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Unlike other substances, smoking weed actually does make you cool. Literally. Don’t let yourself roast in your AC-deficient apartment, just get baked and you’ll find it helps you stay cool when you most need to. That’s right, getting high lowers your body temperature.

Did you know hot drinks cool you down and cold drinks heat you up? Some remedies for the heat don’t seem to make sense, but others, like cannabis, are downright unexpected. You read that right, hot drinks cool you down. The heat from a hot cup of tea or coffee activates special receptors on you tongue that detect heat. These TRPV1 receptors communicate with the rest of your body and activate a cooling response from the inside out. This cooling response lowers you body temperature more than the hot drink heats it up. In a similar way chili peppers also activate TRPV1 receptors and cause the same cooling response.

For this reason hot drinks must have become popular in tropical climates like India where people drink cup after cup of hot tea and eat some of the spiciest foods in the world. Guess what other substance is also quite popular in India: cannabis.

Scientists Tell Time Magazine Their Marijuana Research Goals

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

In the wake of the DEA’s refusal to move cannabis from the list of the most addictive and non-medical drugs,TIME Magazine sought opinions on the future of canna-science from experts currently conducting research with marijuana.

The casual statements about the safety of cannabis made by the experts are noteworthy.

Scientists argue that studying marijuana is safe, and researching it shouldn’t be such a difficult process. “A question that is not on the lips of researchers is whether or not the consumption of cannabis-based medicines is safe,” says Gregory Gerdeman, an Assistant Professor of Biology at Eckerd College. “In the biomedical research community, it is universally understood that cannabis is a very safe, well-tolerated medicine.”
