Poll Shows Majority Support For Medical Marijuana In Kentucky

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
kentucky-weed-gets-supportAccording to a Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll which asked voters whether they favored or opposed medical marijuana in Kentucky 52 percent were in favor and 37 percent were opposed. Support was highest in the 18-34 age group, which isn’t shocking considering that tends to be the case in just about every poll in most states. Support was the lowest among older voters (65 and older), which also is not a shock, especially in Kentucky.
 
“That is a trend that is developing nationwide. It’s actually on the ballot to be voted on in Florida,” House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said last week. “There does seem to be in the public a growing awareness that the medical marijuana issue is different from the drug issue, legalizing the drug for recreational purposes.”
 
I dream of a day when states like Kentucky get a real medical marijuana bill passed. By real, I mean one that allows home cultivation, allows safe access points where patients who can’t grow can buy their meds, and that there are no ‘CBD only’ restrictions. I also hope that anyone who is suffering can get approved for medical marijuana, not just those on a very small list.
 
I like that there are so many states that have medical marijuana programs now, but so many of them ban home grows, don’t allow enough safe access points (if any at all), and have such strict qualifying condition lists. More states need to adopt a model like Oregon’s, rather than adopt a model like New Jersey. I understand that some concessions have to be made in order to get the bill/initiative passed, but keep in mind that there are people suffering, and they should be able to use a form of medicine that is safe and effective.

New Study Finds Cannabinoids May Treat Osteoarthritis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-treat-osteoarthritisA study published in this month’s issue of the European Journal of Neurosciencehas found that cannabinoids may be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis.
 
According to the study; “Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease associated with articular cartilage degradation. The major clinical outcome of osteoarthritis is a complex pain state that includes both nociceptive and neuropathic mechanisms.”
 
It continues; “Currently, the therapeutic approaches for osteoarthritis are limited as no drugs are available to control the disease progression and the analgesic treatment has restricted efficacy. Increasing evidence from preclinical studies supports the interest of the endocannabinoid system as an emerging therapeutic target for osteoarthritis pain. Indeed, pharmacological studies have shown the anti-nociceptive effects of cannabinoids in different rodent models of osteoarthritis, and compelling evidence suggests an active participation of the endocannabinoid system in the pathophysiology of this disease.”
 
“The ubiquitous distribution of cannabinoid receptors, together with the physiological role of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of pain, inflammation and even joint function further support the therapeutic interest of cannabinoids for osteoarthritis.”
 
Researchers for the study conclude that; “This review summarizes the promising results that have been recently obtained in support of the therapeutic value of cannabinoids for osteoarthritis management.”

Strain Review; Ghost OG

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
ghost-og-weed
Ghost OG Kush is a very highly rated strain of cannabis, primarily an indica dominant hybrid with a ratio of about 70/30. It is characterized by it's dank nugs which are extremely hairy. The nugs are super dense, with a satisfactory covering of trichomes that give this bud an amazing look. Just based on sight alone, you'll want to pack this in your bong and smoke it. If the look of the bud doesn't get you, the smell will. Ghost OG Kush has a very citrusy smell and while still remaining pleasant, you can definitely catch the hint of that familiar OG smell.
 
This strain is one of the ones that you should be careful with. If you're not a heavy smoker, you should probably build up to this one. This bud tastes amazing, providing that it's well cured and has been flushed before harvest. Providing a smooth hit for the user, Ghost OG Kush is sure to become a favorite of yours if you can get your hands on a good batch. But as said before, be careful. With such heavy indica properties, this bud will cause you to become seriously couch locked if you don't know what you're getting in to. It's best to start with this strain in a bowl rather than the bong.
 
For patients with medical needs, Ghost OG Kush is a great medicine to have in the cabinet. Those suffering from depression and anxiety can greatly benefit from the strain's ability to calm people down. Not only that but it's amazing indica effects are great for those in pain as well as those suffering from eating issues. It also means that insomnia patients will be able to sleep if they choose to utilize Ghost OG Kush. So if you do see this strain on a shelf at a dispensary, it's suggested that you snag some, at least just to try it!

Marijuana Can Treat Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia According To Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 31st 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-fight-cancersA new study published in the journal Case Reports in Oncology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis can treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the white blood cells.
 
According to researchers; “Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a cancer of the white blood cells and is typically well treated with combination chemotherapy, with a remission state after 5 years of 94% in children and 30-40% in adults. This case study is on a 14-year-old patient diagnosed with a very aggressive form of ALL (positive for the Philadelphia chromosome mutation). A standard bone marrow transplant, aggressive chemotherapy and radiation therapy were revoked, with treatment being deemed a failure after 34 months.”
 
They continue; “Without any other solutions provided by conventional approaches aside from palliation, the family administered cannabinoid extracts orally to the patient. Cannabinoid resin extract is used as an effective treatment for ALL with a positive Philadelphia chromosome mutation and indications of dose-dependent disease control.”
 
Researchers conclude that; “The clinical observation in this study revealed a rapid dose-dependent correlation”, indicating that the higher the dose, the better the results.
