Recent Study Shows That Cannabis Fights Osteoarthritis Related Cartilage Breakdown

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

osteoarthritis cartilidge breakdownOne of my favorite things to do in life is play basketball. I’m not the best at it, and definitely don’t possess the genetics and talent that I wish I had in order to have pursued my dreams as a basketball player growing up, but it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed. It was the only form of exercise that I could do that came naturally. Running around a track gets boring. Trying to make it rain at noon ball open gym was always much funner.

I have played in a lot of city basketball leagues, and play in a basketball tournament every summer, and have for over a decade.

Ingesting cannabis helps the pain too, which is particularly hardcore some days. A recent study found that the use of synthetic cannabinoids reduced cartilage breakdown related to osteoarthritis.

Federal lawmakers gathered on Capitol Hill this week in a continued effort to prevent the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration from sabotaging statewide medical marijuana programs.

On Thursday, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee approved a rider designed to stop the Department of Justice from spending federal funds to shakedown any state or U.S. territory that has legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The rider, which was introduced by Senator Barbara Mikulski, would accomplish this goal by simply prohibiting the department from using federal tax dollars “to prevent any [state] from implementing their own laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
