Cannabis Use Significantly Reduces Frequency of Migraine Headaches, Study Finds

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Cannabis use significantly decreases the frequency of migraine headaches, according to a study published in the journalPharmacotherapy. The study, which is the first clinical trial to demonstrate the effects of cannabis use on human migraines, was e-published by the National Institute of Health.

“No clinical trials are currently available that demonstrate the effects of marijuana on patients with migraine headache”, the study’s abstract begins; “however, the potential effects of cannabinoids on serotonin in the central nervous system indicate that marijuana may be a therapeutic alternative”.

With this in mind, “the objective of this study was to describe the effects of medical marijuana on the monthly frequency of migraine headache.”

Researchers examined 121 adult migraine sufferers and found that; “Migraine headache frequency decreased from 10.4 to 4.6 headaches per month with the use of medical marijuana. Most patients used more than one form of marijuana and used it daily for prevention of migraine headache.” They continue; “Positive effects were reported in 48 patients (39.7%), with the most common effects reported being prevention of migraine headache with decreased frequency of migraine headache (24 patients [19.8%]) and aborted migraine headache (14 patients [11.6%]). Inhaled forms of marijuana were commonly used for acute migraine treatment and were reported to abort migraine headache.”

Bill Permitting California Landlords to Ban Medical Pot is Dropped

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

The California legislature agreed on Wednesday to drop a proposed bill that would have allowed landlords to evict tenants for smoking medical marijuana in their homes.

The bill, proposed by Democratic Assemblyman Jim Wood from Northern California, sought to ban medical marijuana use in rented apartments, claiming that secondhand smoke is unhealthy and could seep through the windows or ventilation systems to other people’s apartments.

However, Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, chairwoman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and other medical marijuana advocates argued that the proposed bill severely narrowed the rights of patients to use MMJ as they or their doctors see fit.

US court upholds ban on gun sales to marijuana card holders

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal government ban on the sale of guns to medical marijuana card holders does not violate the Second Amendment, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court's jurisdiction, including California, Washington and Oregon.

It came in a lawsuit filed by S. Rowan Wilson, a Nevada woman who said she tried to buy a firearm for self-defense in 2011 after obtaining a medical marijuana card. The gun store refused, citing the federal rule banning the sale of firearms to illegal drug users.
