Medical marijuana helps senior sleep, contend with other problems of aging

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Before Cherie Scott goes to sleep every night, the 86-year-old has a sweet bedtime snack: a marijuana cookie.
 
With her chic bob hairstyle and tweed blazer, Scott — who prefers to be addressed as “Mrs. Scott” — doesn’t exactly fit the stoner stereotype. Admittedly, before she tried it, she was totally against the drug.
 
“I thought the whole system, it was evil and addictive and you were a little cuckoo with it,” the Burnaby senior told The Province.
 
But when she found herself in a dire situation, unable to sleep after her husband died of lung cancer in 1980, Scott said she was desperate for relief. Fearing she would become addicted to sleeping pills, Scott’s son suggested she try marijuana.
 
Mitch D’Kugener, who has a doctor’s prescription, smoked pot to alleviate symptoms of his attention deficit disorder and arthritis pain, and he thought it might also help his mom.
 
“Now she’s having the best sleep that she’s had in the last 30 years,” he said. “Her quality of life has improved.”

N.H. Senate to vote on amended medical pot bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire could be on its way to joining 18 other states and the District of Columbia in legalizing the medical use of marijuana by people with serious illness.
 
The Senate will vote this week on a heavily amended version of the House passed medical marijuana bill, which among other changes strikes a home grow provision advocates said was crucial to providing timely access for patients who have waited years to use marijuana legally.
 
The Senate version also removes PTSD from the list of approved conditions, decreases the number of dispensaries from five to four, and requires patients to have a state-issued ID card.
 
The changes were requested by Gov. Maggie Hassan, who supports medical use but wanted tighter regulations.

Study: Hemp Seed Oil May Help Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, May, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director
 
The consumption of legal hemp seed nutritional oil, in conjunction with the intake of evening primrose oils and a restricted diet high in Hot-natured foods (such as pepper) and low in saturated fats and sugars, is associated with “significant improvement” in symptom management and immunological characteristics in subjects with multiple sclerosis, according to clinical trial data published this month in the scientific journal BioImpacts.
 
Researchers at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in Iran assessed the impact of hemp seed oil, evening primrose oils, and a restricted diet for a period of six months in 23 patients diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS. Researchers reported that participants at the study’s completion “were healthier in comparison to baseline,” concluding that “clinical and immunological parameters showed improvement in the patients after the intervention.” They noted that hemp seed oil possesses potent antioxidative properties and also likely acts on specific signaling pathways that regulate inflammatory responses — two characteristics that would presumably make it beneficial in the treatment of MS.
