Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Charlotte Figi had her first seizure when she was three months old. It began after a warm bath, a common precursor to the first seizures in Dravet Syndrome. Within a couple of years, she was experiencing over 300 spontaneous grand mal seizures a week.

You may have heard of Charlotte’s story. She’s been featured on 60 Minutes, in a CNN documentary and is the namesake of a popular medicinal compound. The beginning of her story is common for children with Dravet Syndrome, a severe childhood disorder caused by a genetic mutation that impairs the brain’s neuronal “brake.”

CBD Treatment for Ischemic Stroke: New Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

There are over 200,000 cases of ischemic stroke – damage to the brain from interruption of its blood supply – each year in the United States. According to new research published in the journal Pharmaceuticals, cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in cannabis, may provide a potential CBD treatment option. 

“Cannabis contains the psychoactive component delta⁸-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta⁸-THC), and the non-psychoactive components cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol, and cannabigerol,” states the study’s abstract.

Hoosiers Want Medical Marijuana!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Indiana’s Republican-dominated legislature has all but refused to give any marijuana-related bill so much as a hearing. But now a new poll finds that this anti-pot attitude goes against the grain of the voters. An impressive majority of Hoosiers supports the legalization of medical marijuana.

That’s according to the latest WTHR/Howey Politics Indiana Poll, published last Friday, which shows 73 percent of Indiana residents believe marijuana should be legalized throughout the state for medicinal purposes. Only 25 percent of the respondents opposed this kind of reform to the state’s drug laws. Two percent were undecided.

Indiana lawmakers have been trying for years to get the state legislature to hear various proposals aimed at legalizing marijuana. But none of those measures, not even one pushing for the decriminalization of minor possession, have so much as received a hearing.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

When Lisa Mastramico needed relief for her ailing tabby, Little Kitty, she turned to an unlikely source: marijuana.

At 12 years old, the cat had arthritis. For a long while she spent her days hiding in a closet, where Ms. Mastramico had built her a bed of plush blankets. After trying various supplements that proved ineffectual, she went to a meeting forWomen Grow, an industry group for cannabis entrepreneurs.

She was not sold on the idea right away. “My concern was that it’s not my place to get my cat high,” said Ms. Mastramico, the director of a public access television network in Long Beach, Calif.

Germany: Medical Marijuana Program Expands—Cautiously

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

German authorities just took the unprecedented move of allowing a medical marijuana patient to cultivate at home.

The obscurely named Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) announced on Oct. 2 that a multiple sclerosis sufferer from Mannheim, in the Baden-Württemberg state, will be permitted to grow a maximum of 130 plants a year. But the grow must be confined to an extremely restricted space in his bathroom. Terms of the permit stipulate that any leftover plants or harvested herb must be destroyed, and the buds must be kept in a “secure storage unit.”

The Mannheimer, who was not named in media accounts, had to battle through the courts even for this, arguing that he could not afford the monthly 1,500 euros he had to pay at state-approved pharmacies. Germany’s Federal Administrative Court finally ruled in April that the BfArM must “allow the claimant to grow cannabis, harvest the drug, and use it for the medical purpose of his treatment.”
