New York Physician Assistants Can Now Recommend Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

New York physician assistants (PA’s) are now allowed to recommend marijuana to medical marijuana patients, they are the newest group of professionals allowed to do so – after nurse practitioners became eligible to legally prescribe back in November.

New York physician assistants can also register with the state Department of Health (DOH) to certify patients to take part in New York’s medical marijuana program, the DOH is to announce tomorrow.

There is a catch – only those working under a supervising physician who is also registered to certify patients are eligible.

Puff, Puff, Pass: New Vaccine Could Help Herpes-Suffering Stoners

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Communal joints and blunts have long been a pillar of the weed tradition, and even if you grew away from them toward bongs and pipes, there is always the memories of rolling and passing blunts late at night with friends. You probably also remember the negative side—a wet blunt from someone’s lips, passed around to multiple people, accumulates and spreads germs.

Generally, we assume there’s low risk here—sure, you might catch the sniffles that your buddy has been nursing for a week or two, but that’s a low risk compared to the high return of friendship and camaraderie. However, there’s a more sinister risk lurking beneath your friends’ skin: oral herpes.

“If you have oral herpes and a cut on your lip, you could easily spread the disease by sharing blunts or joints,” said Dr. Carolyn Cegielski, a gastroenterologist from Mississippi.

Can Medical Marijuana Help Treat Liver Disease?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Can medical marijuana help treat liver disease? As more scientific research is being done on the cannabis plant in general, so is more research on the endocannabinoid system.  There have been articles written about what the endocannabinoid system is, and even articles about how endocannabinoid deficiency can affect the human body.

Research has also found that liver disease, a disease that inflicts more than 400,000 people each year and is ranked among the top 10 leading causes of death in the U.S., can be treated with medical marijuana because of the endocannabinoid system.  This very system regulates not only the nervous system, but the immune system as well. Because of this, researchers have concluded that cannabis may possibly be able to help people suffering from certain forms of liver disease because of our preexisting cannabinoid system.  This followed a study in 2005 that researchers at the Hebrew University Medical School did, which concluded that our body’s own internal endocannabinoid system has receptors that bind with cannabis’ most active ingredient, THC.

Mormons and Medical Marijuana: Utah’s Plan to Study Pot Goes Forward

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Utah is a weird place. Coffee and alcohol are hard to come by, but in a state where politicians measure each other in shades of conservative, more and more Republicans are pushing for access to medical marijuana.

Utah lawmakers pushed hard to legalize medical marijuana this year, but a combination of uncertainty over what President Donald Trump’s administration planned to do and plain, old delay-and-obstruct tactics delayed the issue. But things are moving forward again after a plan to spend this year “studying” medical marijuana advanced to Gov. Gary Herbert’s desk for his signature.

And its only opponents are some of the state’s lone Democrats, who say that the plan is an unnecessary delay tactic—and that more than enough to justify legalizing medical cannabis is already known.

Doctor’s Orders: Put Marijuana In Your Butt, Don’t Smoke It

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

WARNING: PREDICTABLE AND JUVENILE ATTEMPTS AT HUMOR FOLLOW.

Canada is further along than nearly every other country in embracing cannabis as a legitimate medicine. Health Canada currently licenses 38 companies to produce and distribute medical marijuana. But as for how this medicine should be taken? We’re doing it wrong, all wrong.

Most cannabis is smoked, of course, and both Health Canada and the Canadian Medical Association are both formally opposed to the inhalation of anything burned. This is why “[m]ost” doctors in Canada absolutely “hate” medical marijuana, association spokesman Jeff Blackmer told CBC. After all, one doctor pointed out, we know opiate-based painkillers reduce pain—but we don’t have doctors suggesting we should legalize smoking opium.

So what to do?

NFL Players Association to Negotiate for Medical Marijuana Access

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

The NFL and NFL Players Association continue to discuss the pros and cons of a basic question: Why can’t football players use medical marijuana, approved in over half the country and proven to help with pain and dangerous brain swelling caused by concussions?

In that the National Football League stubbornly remains on the conservative, anti-scientific side on the issue, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) is being obliged to make concessions at the bargaining table.

“What will we ever give up for marijuana?” NFLPA president Eric Winston asked recently on NBC’s PFT Live. “We get tested once per year, 99 percent of them know it’s coming.”

Winston indicated the instead of concessions, the NFLPA will use science to prove that pot is a better alternative for pain management than opiates.
