Marijuana Pill May Be Better for Pain
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, April, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
A pill form of marijuana may work just as well to relieve pain as the smoked form, but with fewer side effects, new research suggests.
In the study, people who either smoked marijuana or took the drug dronabinol — a pill that contains the active ingredient of marijuana — were able to hold their hands in a bath of ice water (showing that they could tolerate the pain of the cold temperature) for longer than participants who took a placebo.
What's more, the pain-reducing effect of dronabinol lasted longer than that of smoking marijuana, the researchers said. While smoking the drug decreased pain sensitivity for about 2.5, the pill continued to have pain-reducing effects for about 4.5 hours. However, analgesic effects of the pill took about an hour to kick in, compared with about 15 minutes for smoking marijuana.
Medical marijuana is legal in 18 states, and studies have suggested that smoking the drug relieves pain. For instance, a 2010 study found that smoking marijuana eased pain from nerve injuries.
However, more research is needed to confirm the results. Because the study involved healthy people, it's not clear if individuals who suffer from a condition such as chronic pain would experience the same effect from the pill. (But Cooper noted that, in the past, drugs that worked in early studies to reduce the pain of an ice bath ended were indeed later shown to relieve chronic pain.)

Dispensary Business Plan
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sun, April, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
To open a dispensary you will need a dispensary business plan. With the relaxing of the laws in some states relating to the cultivation, selling, and possession of marijuana for medicinal purposes there are now legal dispensaries in operation in many locations throughout the USA. These dispensaries provide a valuable service in local communities, as the alternative is for those in need to have to source their medicinal marijuana from illegal dealers. They help societies in other ways too, as they create jobs and provide opportunities for people to start their own business.
Opening a marijuana dispensary as a business venture can be a very rewarding and profitable experience. It is a recession proof business, as people will always have a need for medicinal marijuana. It is not an easy task, however, as there are still many objections to the legalization of medicinal marijuana, and as such there are very stringent rules and regulations in place to ensure that any dispensary is run ethically.
A dispensary business plan is absolutely vital for anybody who is considering entering this line of business. It should clearly set out in great detail every aspect of the proposed dispensary operation. It is only when certain legal parameters are met that state licensing boards will grant a dispensary license. A dispensary business plan is required to prove that those conditions will be met.
In particular, a dispensary business plan will have to state categorically where the dispensary’s supply of marijuana will be sourced from, and what the size of the expected customer base will be. It will also have to state what measures will be put in place to ensure that all marijuana will be dispensed legally, and that stocks of medical cannabis will always be stored securely.
Since Federal law still classifies marijuana as an illegal substance, any state which has legalized the drug must be seen to be extremely strict in their licensing for medical marijuana dispensaries. A state licensing board must therefore be impressed by a dispensary business plan in order to grant a license. They must also be satisfied that any proposed dispensary will be of benefit to the local community. As a consequence, this should be the focus of attention for anybody who would like to operate a dispensary business. A good dispensary business plan will not only allow them to be granted a license, but also to be granted a business loan from a bank.
Owning and operating a legal marijuana dispensary is a serious responsibility, and one which must be handled professionally. It must be run as diligently as any other business in order for it to be successful. For this reason the creation of a dispensary business plan is the crucial first step in the process of owning a licensed dispensary business.
