Medical Marijuana Reverses Tobacco Caused Ischemia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

I don’t think I am making a controversial statement here by saying that weed is probably safer than tobacco. Sure, we are still producing minor carcinogens when combusting cannabis—but without all of the gross additives in cigarettes.

Aside from the big one (cancer), smoking cigarettes can cause a whole plethora of other problems, one being Thromboangiitis obliterans (TO), a disease that displays itself as the clotting of capillary blood vessels in the arteries/veins of our digits (fingers and toes) from inflammation of surrounding tissue. A case study out of Israel found that extensive use of cannabis reversed the effects of TO.

Before we get into the nuts and bolts of how cannabis may be doing this, let’s quickly go over some of the medical terms we will be seeing. Though the patient exhibited signs of Buerger disease (another name for TO), it was found because of what is called ischemia.

VA Rolls Out New Medical Marijuana Policy For Vets

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, December, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

There has always been some disconnect between veterans and medical marijuana.

Although there has been plenty of evidence to suggest cannabis would be beneficial to veterans for a wide array of ailments, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has been reluctant to allow their doctors to formally recommend it as a treatment option. However, as the VA rolls out a new medical marijuana policy tor vets, it appears doctors are now permitted to at least discuss potential use with their patients.

A New Medical Marijuana Policy For Vets

No, VA doctors are still not permitted to recommend medicinal cannabis to their veteran patrons. However, under the new guidelines, doctors can discuss the possibility with their patients, who can then get a formal recommendation from another doctor.

Kidnapped Man—About To Be Traded For 30 Pounds Of Pot—Escapes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, December, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

It all starts with the victim, A.G., or otherwise known as “Ghost,” a man with a cartel bounty on his head. According to FBI reports, A.G. “had been involved in both alien smuggling and trafficking marijuana for the past few years.” A.G. estimated that he had partaken in around 30 such incidents over the years.

A 54-year-old criminal, Roxanne “Rocky” Marie Carpenter, was an acquaintance of Ghost’s and was approached by the cartel after, according to Carpenter’s testimony, an undisclosed amount of marijuana in which Ghost was responsible for went missing.  According to a court filing from Carpenter’s attorney, the cartel showed up at the defendant’s home with AK-47 assault rifles, demanding the whereabouts of Ghost.

“They were looking for the marijuana for which Ghost was responsible,” the report noted.

Carpenter then began negotiations regarding Ghost’s bounty. The initial asking price was for $37,000, but Carpenter would also have to produce the missing marijuana to receive that reward. The cartel then reportedly offered a truck, but Carpenter declined.

Florida Lawsuit Aims To Put Medical Marijuana Program Into Gear

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Over a year ago, the majority of voters across the Sunshine State put their seal of approval on a ballot initiative designed to legalize medical marijuana. Since then, there has been nothing but trouble. The state has failed to complete every aspect of the program in a manner that suggests they are taking the law seriously.

Right now, the complaint is about licensing.

The state was supposed to issue 10 cultivation permits by the beginning of October. However, it remains uncertain when that will actually happen. So far, authorities have only approved six licenses. It is for this reason that Miami grower, Bill’s Nursery, and epilepsy patient Michael Bowen are suing the state in federal court.

Their goal? To pressure officials with the Department of Health to get their act together.

Pot Inhaler Reportedly Puts Insomnia Sufferers To Sleep In Minutes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, November, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

A brand new cannabis inhaler is making waves in Britain for its ability to put insomnia sufferers to sleep in just a few short minutes.

Cannabis To The Rescue

The hand-held inhaler aptly named the ICANsleep device, squirts a small amount of cannabis into the user’s lungs without getting them high. The creators say there’s just enough of the drug to creative a sedative effect without any psychoactive effects typically associated with cannabis. It reportedly contains less than a quarter amount of THC found in a typical joint.

Human trials have already begun, with up to 50 participants involved. This comes on the heels of animal tests that proved that the inhaler worked in 10 minutes or less. Researchers claim just one single puff of the inhaler is necessary for a deep sleep.

Smoking For Your Health is a Real Thing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad?

We have been told our whole lives that smoking is bad for your health. We know that smoking increases cancer. We know that it coats our lungs in black soot - almost the same way as building a fire in the fireplace causes soot build up and can catch your house on fire except instead of a fire, it is our ability to breathe. Every doctor will tell you not to smoke. They will tell you to quit immediately if you do smoke. So when marijuana began to come up as medicinal, doctors were skeptical, with very valid reasons.
