Treating Children with Cannabis: How Humanity has made a Big Mistake

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve made a mistake. You and I specifically? Perhaps not, but collectively we’ve shot ourselves in the foot. Treating children with cannabis is not a new concept, but when I grew up I was told quite the opposite. It was something that did only harm, it was a “drug”, but little did I know prior to prohibition, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines from 1840 to 1937, the “golden age” for cannabis medicine in North America.

The ultimate eye-opener was when I had encountered the children whose lives have been saved  (treating children with cannabis) from this plant. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be born into this world and to suffer mind crippling seizures over and over and over again, to endure hellish pain and utter confusion, with the faint presence of your loved ones nearby. I cannot imagine undergoing all of this and being robbed of the opportunity of play, learning, making friends and exploring the world absolutely carefree when all of this could have been prevented with just one plant- treating children with cannabis. Not 25 different complex pharmaceutical medications, but just one plant. A plant that was never made illegal based on medical sciences, but rather through racist fear-mongering and propaganda stemming from the 1920s and 1930s. When you read this quote from Harry J. Anslinger, the 1st Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics…

CURE Pharmaceutical Announces Collaboration with CannaKids to Develop Cannabinoid and Terpene Molecules

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Oxnard, Calif. –(March 7, 2017) – CURE Pharmaceutical (“CURE”), a leading disruptive drug delivery technology company serving the pharmaceutical, biotech, veterinarian, nutraceutical and medical foods markets, today announces a research collaboration with CannaKids in order to develop and research the delivery of various forms and components of cannabinoid molecules for both human and animal therapeutic use via CURE’s patented drug delivery technology.  Multiple human and animal studies have shown that endocannabinoids may play a key role in metabolic processes, lipolysis, pain, gastrointestinal and cancer.  

“This is a logical step for CURE, as the demand for cannabinoid therapeutics has already gained momentum, we have created an entire division of the company dedicated to the discovery and development of clinically proven and New Chemical Entities (NCEs), cannabinoid drug molecules integrated into our proprietary CureFilm and other delivery technologies,” said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. “Some of these drugs will be repurposed for new indications, delivered through alternate routes, designed as prodrugs, combined with other drugs and through the use of our proprietary delivery technologies titer the accurate dosage for optimal effectiveness.”

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Good news in the Peach State! Medical marijuana, now over a year old, is expanding its reach.

The Georgia State House recently decided to back a much broader version of Georgia’s MMJ law.

House Bill 65, sponsored by, yes, a Republican, state Rep. Allen Peake, would double the list of illnesses and conditions eligible for MMJ treatment. It will now include AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, autoimmune disease, epidermolysis bullosa, HIV, peripheral neuropathy and Tourette’s syndrome.

And it also removes the one-year residency requirement.

Advocates want medical marijuana in Florida, but not like California

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

Brightly lit and bustling, Harborside Health Center serves as something of a model for the medical marijuana industry — even as California’s freewheeling approach to cannabis is seen as an example of how not to do things.

As dozens of customers at Harborside pick their products, chatty budtenders talk knowledgeably about the selection, which includes cannabis for smoking, eating and vaporizing.

Business is booming: Between this store in Oakland and another location in San Jose, Harborside’s sales total $35 million a year. Sales are so strong that Harborside offers free yoga, tai chi and acupuncture to its customers, who must have a doctor’s permission to enter the store.

Jamaican Scientists Close in on Affordable CBD-Based Hepatitis Treatment

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

As we celebrate Black History Month, the contributions of black scientists, both men and women, often go unacknowledged in a world where the importance of science is being overlooked, even denied, by our own leaders.

Having said that, the beat goes on.

A group of scientists, led by noted Jamaican cancer researcher Dr. Henry Lowe, have discovered a breakthrough in the treatment of hepatitis C—using cannabidiol (CBD).

Dr. Lowe’s team from the University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica (UWI) announced that CBD is very destructive to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which is responsible for cirrhosis of the liver and also causes liver cancer.
