Low doses of marijuana component can protect brain against injury

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
Though marijuana is a well-known recreational drug, extensive scientific research has been conducted on the therapeutic properties of marijuana in the last decade. Medical cannabis is often used by sufferers of chronic ailments, including cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder, to combat pain, insomnia, lack of appetite, and other symptoms.
 
Now Prof. Yosef Sarne of Tel Aviv University's Adelson Center for the Biology of Addictive Diseases at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine says that the drug has neuroprotective qualities as well. He has found that extremely low doses of THC—the psychoactive component of marijuana—protects the brain from long-term cognitive damage in the wake of injury from hypoxia (lack of oxygen), seizures, or toxic drugs.
 
Brain damage can have consequences ranging from mild cognitive deficits to severe neurological damage. Previous studies focused on injecting high doses of THC within a very short time frame—approximately 30 minutes—before or after injury. Prof. Sarne's current research, published in the journals Behavioural Brain Research and Experimental Brain Research, demonstrates that even extremely low doses of THC—around 1,000 to 10,000 times less than that in a conventional marijuana cigarette—administered over a wide window of 1 to 7 days before or 1 to 3 days after injury can jumpstart biochemical processes which protect brain cells and preserve cognitive function over time. This treatment, especially in light of the long time frame for administration and the low dosage, could be applicable to many cases of brain injury and be safer over time, Prof. Sarne says.

200 pounds of marijuana found at north Phoenix home

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
PHOENIX - Phoenix police are investigating a large scale marijuana bust in north Phoenix.
 
Police were called to a townhouse complex near 20th Street and Beardsley Road just after 3 a.m. Wednesday for reports of a fight.
 
When they arrived, police reportedly found dozens of bails of marijuana inside a garage.  
 
Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said officers found five males bound with zip ties inside the house. One of the men had been struck and injured.
 
Police on scene estimated the marijuana was around 200 pounds worth. Martos referred to it as a "stash house."
 
Martos said between six and 10 Hispanic males forced their way into the townhouse, loaded up three vans, and fled the scene. He said one of the suspects was wearing a police "raid" shirt, posing as an officer. Two of the vans were white, the third was gray, Martos said.
 
Martos said investigators believe the packages taken contained marijuana.

Marijuana helps mitigate Chron's disease

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, May, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
Over the past several years, I have had my share of stomach cramps, lack of appetite and sleepless nights due to Crohn’s disease. I am thrilled the Illinois legislature passed a bill that can bring me relief in the form of medical marijuana. My doctor and I are now both waiting for Gov. Quinn to sign the bill and make it into law.
 
I have tried steroids and other drugs, and none of these drugs helped my condition. Battling Crohn’s is a daily challenge. Medical marijuana helps reduce the incredibly painful swelling in my intestines, keeps my appetite up and helps me sleep at night. Medical marijuana addresses all these things.
 
A very recent study by Israel’s Meir Medical Center found that use of medical marijuana can even result in complete remission of my disease. It’s hard to put into words how good that news is.

I would like to thank the legislature for seeing the wisdom in a well-run medical marijuana program and how it can make all the difference to people like me. I hope the governor signs the bill soon. It is time to let doctors and patients, not police and prosecutors, make medical decisions.
