Could Cannabis Cure Crohn's Disease?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
Smoking cannabis may be key in treating Crohn's disease, research suggests.
 
In a recent trial marijuana was shown to induce 'complete remission' for patients suffering from the condition, which is also known as inflammatory bowel disease.
 
Scientists at Meir Medical Center, Israel, studied 21 people with severe Crohn’s disease who did not respond to various therapies.
 
They split the patients into two groups: 11 were given a joint to smoke twice a day for eight weeks, while 10 were given a placebo cigarette which contained no trace of cannabinoids.
 
A 'complete remission' of Crohn's disease was recorded in 5/11 (45%) of the cannabis group and 1/10 in the placebo group.
 
A total of 10/11 patients in the cannabis group responded to the clinical trial with Crohn's symptoms (which include pain, diarrhoea, tiredness and weight loss) significantly reduced.
 
In addition, study authors wrote: "Subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects."
 
"Further studies, with larger patient groups and a non-smoking mode of intake, are warranted," they added.

Cancer sufferer turned to cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
A "LONELY" bachelor has been spared jail for growing and supplying cannabis to deal with sleep deprivation while he battled cancer – and repay people who helped him out.
William Burton, 68, of Lancaster Avenue, Grimsby, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009 and spent months in chemotherapy which left him depressed and alone.
 
He suffered from extreme sleep deprivation – he was lucky to get a few hours of rest, and when he did, he was plagued by nightmares.
Mr Burton heard from friends that cannabis would help and turned to the drug to aid his sleep and lift his mood.
 
But Mr Burton, who was in the Merchant Navy for more than 30 years, is now living on benefits and found it too expensive.
 
Virtually housebound, he started growing it for himself and others with health problems – and to reward the growing number of people he was relying upon.
 
Mr Burton said: "When you spend all that time feeling ill and sleeping after chemotherapy, people soon stop coming round – but you need help because you're ill.
 
"A worse thing was not sleeping so I started smoking it before I went to bed and I could actually get a full night's sleep.
 
"I wasn't making money – I would give it to other people like me who were in need and they would do the same for me."

Thiago Silva Addresses Marijuana Use: 'It Doesn't Change Your Performance'

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
The role of marijuana as a performance-enhancing drug (PED) has garnered much attention since Pat Healy lost a fortune (and a win) for testing positive after his victory over Jim Miller at UFC 159. 
 
Thiago Silva, a UFC fighter who knows a little something about being disciplined for marijuana consumption, recently spoke to bjpenn.com to add his two cents to the discussion.
 
The light heavyweight combatant, who is scheduled to welcome Rafael Cavalcante to the Octagon on June 8, provided the following perspective:
 
You know, it’s very complicated what to say about that. A lot of guys, they like to drink, you know; I don’t drink, I like to smoke.  I don’t smoke any more, because I really can’t, but I used to like a lot because it helps me to relax. It’s not like a drug like everybody say[s]. So actually, it’s legal in California, you know.  To be honest, I don’t think it’s fair, you know, because it doesn't change your performance.
 
Silva's sentiments echo those of handfuls of fans and fellow fighters who recently came to Healy's defense. While the legality of marijuana varies from location to location, many feel that its impact on athletic performance is negligible and that testing for it in MMA is arbitrary and pointless.
 
Counter arguments focus on the safety of the user, citing slowed reflexes and general lethargy as effects of consumption. Other arguments claim that marijuana use dulls pain, granting the user an unfair advantage in a sport where pain is so prevalent.
