More Studies Prove the Effectiveness of Cannabis in Lowering Blood Pressure

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

It’s still early, according to researchers in England, but studies are showing evidence that suggest cannabidiol (CBD) may be an effective treatment for stress.

We already know that the too-stoned feeling, which may cause a sense of discomfort, or even paranoia, can be mellowed out with CBD.

Researchers are now digging into some of the other chemicals in the complex plant, and they report that there is a lot more to it than the we have previously known.

CBD’s calming effect might extend throughout the body, all the way down to the very vessels through which blood flows.

Maryland’s medical marijuana is finally growing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

At long last, Maryland’s first legal marijuana crop is growing.

With 19 companies cleared to grow, process and sell the plant, the seeds of the medical marijuana program have literally been planted, four years after the state legalized cannabis for medical use.

In coming months, plants will flower in heavily secured facilities, and be harvested and taken to an independent laboratory for quality testing, with some processed into oils, creams and capsules. They’ll end up available for purchase on dispensary shelves around the start of the new year, according to industry officials.

Doctors and Patients In Florida Are Embracing Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

While much of the marijuana news has focused on potential federal interference with legalized marijuana and California joining the ranks of legal recreational marijuana states, Florida has started what should become a mammoth medical marijuana business.

Projections vary on the size of the Florida market for medical marijuana but the consensus estimate is that it will exceed $1 billion by 2020.

Sales started this year and business has rapidly expanded across the state. A list kept by the state shows that more than 1,200 doctors have been authorized to prescribe medical marijuana. When voters approved legalized medical marijuana in November 2016, that number stood at fewer than 300. The state Office of Medical Marijuana is granting licenses to doctors at the rate of about 20 per day.

Medical Marijuana Miracles: Everything You Need to Know about RSO and Cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

One of the things that attracted me most to the cannabis industry were the stories of cancer patients who used cannabinoids to help in the treatment of their disease. As an entrepreneur in the cannabis sector, I always try to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in medical marijuana; however, the product that’s most recently peaked my interest has been around for a long time—Rick Simpson Oil (RSO).

With the aid of RSO, along with lifestyle changes and an accompanying diet, many cancer patients, some of whom are now in remission, are living a much healthier life. It has been long established that weed can be a vital weapon in the fight against cancer, but I wanted to understand what makes it so effective.

Cannabis’ well-documented anti-inflammatory properties may play an important role. You might not have learned about this in school, but every human cell contains an endocannabinoid receptor, so the anti-inflammatory benefits of cannabinoid can be felt throughout the body.

Marijuana may help ease nerve pain

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana may be slightly effective at reducing chronic nerve pain known as neuropathy. But there's little evidence on whether pot helps treat other types of pain or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a pair of new studies suggests.

The findings on neuropathy "fit generally well with what we know," said Dr. Sachin Patel of the Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital in Nashville. Patel wrote a commentary accompanying the review in a recent online edition of Annals of Internal Medicine.

Medical marijuana is legal in almost all states for certain medical purposes. Some states may have laws that haven't yet been implemented, according to NORML, a pro-marijuana legalization group. But research into the medical uses of marijuana remains controversial. Plus, it's difficult for scientists to study the drug because it’s illegal on the federal level.

Where Are All the Medical Marijuana Doctors?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

It’s one thing that 29 states have legal medical marijuana, but quite another to find a doctor to recommend it so patients can purchase their medicine.

Physicians can discuss and safely recommend, although not prescribe, cannabis to patients as a health care option, under state or federal law, thanks to a 2004 Federal Court decision that relied on the First Amendment.

“An integral component of the practice of medicine is the communication between a doctor and a patient. Physicians must be able to speak frankly and openly to patients,” read the decision.

Medical cannabis statutes in most states, going back to California’s Proposition 215 in 1996, choose this “recommendation” language carefully.
