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.

Strain Review; Berry Kush (Or Kush Berry)

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 29th 2014 by THCFinder

berry-kush-weedThis strain has two names so please don't bite my head off if you think one is the correct one. I've heard the strain called by both Kush Berry as well as Berry Kush so say it how you will. This strain is highly prized, with huge buds that are dark green in color, with some more highlighted tones as well. Overall, the bud looks pretty much the same throughout. Definitely a good looking strain and one that will surely catch your eye. The smell is very woodsy and earthy, with a somewhat citrusy scent as well. As for taste, it is aromatic and very floral. A very enjoyable strain.

For patients, Kush Berry is extremely good for patients that have issues with sleeping, nausea, pain, and stress. It is primarily prescribed to patients that have high anxiety and bad migraines. It gives the smoker a very happy, tingly high which is extremely good for patients in pain. Kush Berry is a strain that is recommended for people going through chemo, as it helps with the appetite issues, pain, and weakness that these patients in particular suffer from. It's is definitely a sought after strain and worth a shot if you see it at your local dispensary.

Overall, this strain is something that you should try, whether it's just to get stoned (it's a very beloved kush) or if it's needed for medical reasons. Give it a try if you see it on the shelf and I promise you'll have found one of your new favorite strains! Although, it is pretty safe to say that most marijuana strains are very well loved but this one in particular will not only make you feel better but will continue to make you feel great even after you get better!

Could Cannabis Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-arthritisA study published by the National Institute of Health has found that cannabinoid receptor activation – something done naturally by cannabis – may provide a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term disease that causes inflammation of the joints and tissues.
 
“Recent studies have suggested immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2R) activation”, states the study’s abstract.
 
Despite these recent studies, researchers say that the connection between these cannabinoid receptors and rheumatoid arthritis has been much less observed, leading them to conduct this study.
 
According to their researchers, data suggests that “CB2R may be a potential therapeutic target of RA [rheumatoid arthritis].”
 
The study will appear in this month’s issue of the Oxford journal Rheumatology. and was conducted by researchers at Changhai Hospital, the Second Military Medical University and Shanghai Guanghua Hospital, all in China.
