Delaware Governor Signs Bill Allowing those with Terminal Illness To Use Medical Cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed into law today legislation that allows those with terminal illnesses – including those under 18 with terminal illness-associated pain, anxiety or depression – to become legal medical cannabis patients.

Under Delaware law, medical cannabis has been legal for around five years. Patients who receive a recommendation from a physician and register with the state are entitled to possess, use and purchase medical cannabis, given they have a qualifying condition. The list of qualifying conditions includes ailments such as multiple sclerosis and seizures, though it doesn’t specifically include terminal illnesses. In three months, when the law takes effect, that will change.

The measure was named after Bob Jester, who was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer on his 62nd birthday.

Doctors Complain about Medical Marijuana Knowledge Gap

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

CNN recently interviewed a physician in Maine who said she would like to counsel her patients on the use of medical marijuana but feels unprepared.

And Maine passed its Medical Marijuana Act in 1999.

Dr. Jean Antonucci told CNN that she still feels “completely in the dark” about whether marijuana is the right way to treat an ailment, what the dose should be and whether a patient should smoke it, eat it, apply it or vaporize it.

Most physicians have never been trained to deal with these issues, which are still not covered in medical schools.

DOH Report: New York Should Expand Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

While the medical marijuana law in New York is often considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, the state could soon be persuaded to expand the reach of the program based on recommendations outlined in a new report from the state’s leading health agency.

Earlier this week, the New York State Health Department published a two-year analysis of the Compassionate Care Act, starting from the time the bill was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo. It insists the program is functioning better than other states with similar laws in place, at least in terms of the number of physicians and patients who are registered for participation.

Life Hack: Smoke Weed to Beat the Summer Heat… Really

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Unlike other substances, smoking weed actually does make you cool. Literally. Don’t let yourself roast in your AC-deficient apartment, just get baked and you’ll find it helps you stay cool when you most need to. That’s right, getting high lowers your body temperature.

Did you know hot drinks cool you down and cold drinks heat you up? Some remedies for the heat don’t seem to make sense, but others, like cannabis, are downright unexpected. You read that right, hot drinks cool you down. The heat from a hot cup of tea or coffee activates special receptors on you tongue that detect heat. These TRPV1 receptors communicate with the rest of your body and activate a cooling response from the inside out. This cooling response lowers you body temperature more than the hot drink heats it up. In a similar way chili peppers also activate TRPV1 receptors and cause the same cooling response.

For this reason hot drinks must have become popular in tropical climates like India where people drink cup after cup of hot tea and eat some of the spiciest foods in the world. Guess what other substance is also quite popular in India: cannabis.
