FDA-approved medical marijuana clinical trial gets underway next month for kids with epilepsy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, December, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-trial-approved-by-fdaA nationally renowned pediatric neurologist at Saint Barnabas has gotten FDA approval to study whether a cannabis-based drug could prevent seizures in children diagnosed with severe forms of epilepsy.
 
The development is sure to be watched closely in New Jersey, where a number of families whose children have Dravet syndrome, a potentially deadly form of epilepsy, say they cannot obtain yet a useful form of medicinal marijuana through the state Department of Health.
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave Orrin Devinsky, director of the New York University and Saint Barnabas Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, Roberta Cilio of the University of California - San Francisco's Neurology Department, and GW Pharmaceuticals of the United Kingdom permission to use the experimental drug, Epidiolex, to treat 125 children with seizure disorders for whom traditional medicines have failed.
 
Enrollment in the trial will begin next month, Devinsky said.
 
"I think this is a big step forward in the science of Cannabidiods," said Devinsky, referring to the spectrum of active ingredients in marijuana. "We will finally get some some data on epilepsy, and this should provide the basis to plan a randomized double-blind study."
 
The drug is a liquid form of pure cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant that according to anecdotal reports has shown to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures in children. The FDA's Nov. 15th approval also gives Epidiolex "orphan drug" status, providing GW full marketing rights to be the lone producer of the product for seven years, the company said in a statement.
 
Orphan diseases are rare, occurring in less than 200,000 of people in the nation. There are 5,440 documented cases of Dravet syndrome in the United States and 6,710 in Europe, although the actual number may be higher because the condition is under-diagnosed, according to a statement from the pharmaceutical company. The seizures can damage the brain, delay development and cause lifelong intellectual disabilities.

Cannabis Can Treat Osteoarthritis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-can-treat-osteoarthritis
A new study published in the journal PLOS One, as well as by the National Institute of Health, has found strong evidence that activation of our body’s cannabinoid receptors – something done naturally by cannabis – can treat osteoarthritis (OA), which, according to the study’s researchers, is “a prevalent disease accompanied by chronic, debilitating pain”. It’s the most common joint disorder.
 
While studying the effects of cannabinoid receptor activation on OA-related pain, researchers found “new clinically relevant evidence that joint damage and spinal CB2 receptor expression are correlated combined with converging pre-clinical evidence that activation of CB2 receptors inhibits central sensitization and its contribution to the manifestation of chronic OA pain.”
 
They conclude that; “These findings suggest that targeting CB2 receptors may have therapeutic potential for treating OA pain.”
 
The study was funded by Arthritis Research U.K., as well as the National Institute of Health.

Cannabis May Improve Attention And Memory

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-may-help-improv-memoryA new study published and funded by the National Institute of Health has found that poor working memory and attention control is associated with a lower efficiency of the endocannabinoid system, indicating that cannabis could improve these functions as it activates and positively regulates this system.
 
“Our results suggest that.. a lower efficiency of the endocannabinoid system, probably due to a lowered expression of CB1R, produced a reduction in the performance of these subjects when attentional control and working memory processing is challenged.”

Super Sour OG Strain Review

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
super-sour-og-weed
 
A cross between Sour Diesel and OG Kush, the Super Sour OG strain is a relaxing high but will also allow you to feel energetic. This strain will allow you to sit back and laugh with friends. And if you feel like using it for sleep? It works for that too. It's not a one hit and you're done strain but falling asleep will be a pleasant experience. The strain is a sativa hybrid but with a hard indica punch that will really knock you out if you're not careful.
 
super-sour-og-weed-3
 
Super Sour OG is a strain that is excellent for patients that suffer from pain or afflictions like epilepsy. The strain won't give you couch lock and will instead give relief. The primary positive effects are euphoria, with the only real negative being dry mouth, which is common for most marijuana strains and be easily be cured.
 
super-sour-og-weed-2
 
The buds of Super Sour OG are on the bigger side, with tons of glittering trichomes and an abundance of orange hairs in a background of bright green. This strain is on the fluffier side, although all of this depends on the way that the plant was grown. With a fruity aroma that will draw anyone in, Super Sour OG is a strain that patients and recreational smokers a like will enjoy.
