9 of 10 Docs Unprepared to Prescribe Marijuana

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

Although it's becoming more commonplace, medical marijuana is rarely discussed in U.S. medical schools, a new study shows.

"Medical education needs to catch up to marijuana legislation," said senior author Dr. Laura Jean Bierut, a professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

"Physicians in training need to know the benefits and drawbacks associated with medical marijuana so they know when or if, and to whom, to prescribe the drug," she explained in a school news release.

Marijuana is now legal -- at least for medical purposes -- in more than half the states in the country, the researchers said.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Contrary to the popular image of stoners as party animals, many cannabis users may just want to go to sleep, if a Denver-area survey is a reliable indicator. The survey, conducted by Consumer Research Around Cannabis, found that only pain relief rivals sleep as a reason for using marijuana.

Consumer Research surveyed 1,258 marijuana users in the Denver metropolitan area and nearby parts of Wyoming and Nebraska.

7 Diseases Medical Marijuana Can Treat 0 BY TWB ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Even though marijuana is approved for medical use in nearly 60% of U.S. states, there’s still somewhat of a stigma attached. However, doctors and patients agree that marijuana can be medically beneficial to many people.  Here, we will explain 7 diseases that medical marijuana can treat.  

2013 New England Journal of Medicine study found that nearly 8 out of 10 doctors approve the use of medical marijuana. A survey of California residents found that 92% of patients agree that marijuana is helpful for their symptoms of chronic pain, migraine headaches, and cancer.  

Medical marijuana has shown promise in treating many conditions, including the following seven diseases:

Ohio: College to Test Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

It has been a year and counting since Ohio passed its medical marijuana law in June 2016, and nobody has yet received any cannabis under the program. The logjam is due to the failure of the state to issue licenses to any cultivators, processors, dispensaries or testing labs. 

Finally, the first sign of progress is reported as a college has come forward to offer cannabis testing services.”

The problem is that the law stipulates a one-year moratorium on commercial laboratories being licensed—and the clock started ticking last September, when the program was officially launched. That leaves it up to universities. And, as Cincinnati.com puts it, “many university officials are wary of losing money from a federal government that still labels marijuana as among the most dangerous, illegal drugs.”

But on Sept. 5, Hocking College, in the southeastern Ohio town of Nelsonville, stepped up to the plate.

Texas Medical Marijuana Patients Caught in Catch-22

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Texas’ medical marijuana patients are still finding themselves in a classic Catch-22 situation. The Lone Star State is the only one in the union where its medical marijuana law requires that doctors “prescribe” MMJ rather than “recommend” it—like the rest of the country.

This is obviously a problem because doctors are not permitted by law to prescribe a Schedule I substance, which sadly marijuana is, according to the DEA’s absurd system of classification.

But it’s never been easy in Texas.

When Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the Compassionate Use Act in 2015, the law was meant to allow neurologists and epileptologists (epilepsy experts) to prescribe low-THC, cannabis-based medicine to people with untreatable and intractable epilepsy.
