Marijuana Can Kill Colon Cancer Cells

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-kills-colon-cancer-cellsA new study published in the most recent issue of the journal Phytomedicine, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-based medicines may provide a cure for colon cancer.
 
For the study, researchers “investigated the effect of a standardized Cannabis sativa extract with high content of cannabidiol (CBD), here named CBD BDS, i.e. CBD botanical drug substance, on colorectal cancer cell proliferation and in experimental models of colon cancer in vivo.”
 
While conducting the study, it was found that; “CBD reduced cell proliferation in tumoral, but not in healthy, cells. In vivo, CBD reduced AOM-induced preneoplastic lesions and polyps as well as tumour growth in the xenograft model of colon cancer.”
 
Researchers conclude that “CBD attenuates colon carcinogenesis and inhibits colorectal cancer cell proliferation via CB1 and CB2 receptor activation. The results may have some clinical relevance for the use of Cannabis-based medicines in cancer patients.”

Illinois Medical Marijuana Law Takes Effect Today

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
law-goes-into-effect
It has been a long road for medical marijuana patients in Illinois, and unless you suffer from a very short list of qualifying conditions, the road will be even longer. Illinois’ very strict medical marijuana law takes effect today. Illinois doesn’t allow home cultivation, and doesn’t have any dispensaries open yet, so the law taking effect today is largely symbolic.
 
According to Illinois’ medical marijuana law, patients will eventually be able to obtain up to “2.5 ounces of usable cannabis during a period of 14 days and that is derived solely from an intrastate source.” The phrase ‘derived solely from an interstate source’ is going to be the sticking point for medical marijuana patients in Illinois. There currently are no interstate sources, and without home gardens, it’s going to be tough to get safe access, even after dispensaries open. Illinois will be a lot like New Jersey, where shortages are frequent, and safe access leaves a lot to be desired.
 
In order to become a patient in Illinois, you must suffer from one of the following conditions:
 
cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, cachexia/wasting syndrome, muscular dystrophy, severe fibromyalgia, spinal cord disease, including but not limited to arachnoiditis, Tarlov cysts, hydromyelia, syringomyelia, Rheumatoid arthritis, fibrous dysplasia, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and post-concussion syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Arnold-Chiari malformation and Syringomyelia, Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA), Parkinson’s, Tourette’s, Myoclonus, Dystonia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, RSD (Complex Regional Pain Syndromes Type I), Causalgia, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndromes Type II), Neurofibromatosis, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, Sjogren’s syndrome, Lupus, Interstitial Cystitis, Myasthenia Gravis, Hydrocephalus, nail-patella syndrome, residual limb pain, or the treatment of these conditions

Strain Review; Chocolate Chunk

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
chocolate-chunk-weed
I'll give you one guess as to what this strain will help. Well a lot of you probably read the blog about marijuana and PMS that I recently wrote. Here's one of the strains that will help the ladies deal with the cramps, fatigue, and annoyances that come with being a female. Chocolate chunk flowers fast, in 55 days, so it's a good strain to have around for a fast harvest.
 
Chocolate gives the smoker a lazy, elevated high. It'll make you sink in the that couch for the whole day so be careful. It is highly effective in fighting stress and the symptoms related with PMS. Not only that, but this particular strain also helps with depression, anxiety, and don't forget appetite loss. As most girls know, all of these things result from PMS. Your significant other will be extremely happy if you keep a jar of Chunk around.
 
You really can't argue with such a good tasting, beneficial bud. It has a high indica percentage and will help with sleeping as well, since it already makes you incredibly lazy. This weed is so powerful that it makes patients forget the fact that they're in pain. This strain is a GREAT one for medical benefits and not only can help PMS but I would assume would be excellent for people who play sports as well, with the high stress and possibly painful environment that they deal with every day. If you see Chocolate Chunk at your local clinic, at least try a bit of it or keep it around for one of those sick days!

Seed Vendors That Ship To The States

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-seeds-shipped
It's hard to find any sort of seed vendor that ships the the United States, since cannabis is still illegal here. Putting a seed in the ground will make you a felon in some states, an action that does nothing more then move along the course of nature. Finding good genetics can be hard, especially for those growing in less than desirable states. I've gone a head and done some research on the subject, providing the following list of five seed vendors that will ship stateside. Keep in mind that growing marijuana is still a crime in most states and you should be careful about what you do with these seeds. Just don't get in trouble.
 
These guys have a great selection and fast shipping, plus they tend to send surprise extras with your order. This site is highly recommended if you're looking for some good seeds.
 
Dr. Chronic is highly recommended for those looking to buy seeds in the US. There are tons of different strains to choose from, as well as good shipping times and fair prices. As of the writing of this blog, their website is under construction so keep that in mind if you decide to visit.
 
This site is extremely well put together and easy to navigate. Stoners that have ordered seeds from this site are extremely happy with the speedy shipping and good genetics. They sell almost any strain you can think of, from beastly indica strains to the "let's get shit done" sativas and everything in between!
 
Although these seeds will be a little bit more expensive, the quick arrival and the discreet packaging make up for it. Rhino Seeds is worth checking out if you're in the market for some new strains.
 
Free seeds with every order? Sign me up! Not only that but this site allows you to buy a single seed at a time, letting you test out the strains before you fill your grow room with them. Now if that's not awesome, I don't know what is when it comes to seed banks!

Cannabinoids Can Treat Neuroinflammation

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-treats-inflmationA new study published in the journal Cell Immunology has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors - something done naturally by cannabis and cannabinoids – has neuroinflammatory capabilities.
 
According to the study; “Here we showed that Gp1a, a highly selective CB2 [cannabinoid receptor 2] agonist, with a four log higher affinity for CB2 than CB1, reduced clinical scores and facilitated recovery in EAE [experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, a disease of the central nervous system] in conjunction with long term reduction in demyelination and axonal loss.”
 
The study continues; “This is the first report on the in vivo CB2-mediated Gp1a inhibition of Th17/Th1 differentiation. We also confirmed the Gp1a-induced inhibition of Th17/Th1 differentiation in vitro, both in non-polarizing and polarizing conditions. The CB2-induced inhibition of Th17 differentiation is highly relevant in view of recent studies emphasizing the importance of pathogenic self-reactive Th17 cells in EAE/MS.
 
Researchers conclude that “the combined effect on Th17 differentiation and immune cell accumulation into the CNS, emphasize the relevance of CB2 selective ligands as potential therapeutic agents in neuroinflammation.”

New Study: Cannabis Effective In Treating Chrohn's Disease

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, December, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-studyA new clinical study published in the journal Pharmacology and by the National Institute of Health has found that cannabis is effective in treating Chrohn’s disease, which is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
 
According to researchers at the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology at the Medical University of Graz in Austria; “In ancient medicine, cannabis has been widely used to cure disturbances and inflammation of the bowel. A recent clinical study now shows that the medicinal plant Cannabis sativa has lived up to expectations and proved to be highly efficient in cases of inflammatory bowel diseases.”
 
They continue; “In a prospective placebo-controlled study, it has been shown what has been largely anticipated from anecdotal reports, i.e. that cannabis produces significant clinical benefits in patients with Crohn’s disease. The mechanisms involved are not yet clear but most likely include peripheral actions on cannabinoid receptors 1 and 2, and may also include central actions.
