Cannabis Can Treat Bladder Pain, Inflammation

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, November, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-treat-diff-ailementsA new study published in the Journal of Neurology has found that activation of the body’s CB2 receptors has the potential to treat bladder pain and inflammation, and can increase bladder urinary frequency.
 
For the study, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison used mouse models to examine whether or not activation of CB2 receptors (something which cannabis does naturally) can treat serious bladder issues; the results were quite clear that it does.
 
“Treatment with a selective CB2 agonist reduced severity of established acrolein-induced cystitis and inhibited bladder inflammation-associated increased referred mechanical sensitivity and increased bladder urinary frequency”, states the study’s abstract.
 
Researchers conclude: “Our data indicate that CB2 receptor is a potential therapeutic target for treatment of painful inflammatory bladder diseases.”

Why Vaporizing Medical Cannabis Is Getting Popular

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
more-people-are-vapingMany people using medical cannabis, for obvious reasons, are very worried about their health. For some people, smoking is just out of the question. Even though cannabis isn’t associated with the cancer risk that smoking tobacco is associated with, smoking still does have effects on the lungs that may be undesirable for some people. Particularly if the patient is an avid runner or engages in some other vigorous fitness routine, smoking may diminish their performance and make them feel like medical cannabis might not be accessible.
 
The first option here is usually to get marijuana that is baked into food. This completely eliminates the need to draw anything into your lungs. The other option is to try vaporizing. There are good reasons why many people are turning to vaporizers as a way to use medical cannabis.
 
Versus Smoking
 
In order to smoke anything, you have to combust it. According to some information, a burning joint can reach over 2000°F. There is also research to show that most of the smoke that is produced when you combust marijuana does not actually contain the cannabinoids you want, but contains a great many more other components.
 
For some people, this makes smoking far less than ideal. Vaporization has qualities that make it more attractive.
 
Some information holds that vaporizing marijuana produces a vapor that is more than 95% free of smoke. The vaporization takes place at a much lower temperature than combustion. At approximately 340°F, the cannabinoids in cannabis start to vaporize.
 
With cannabinoids in excess of 90%, vapor can be very effective at delivering the desired effect from medical cannabis. For many people, vaporization is simply a more modern, more effective and more desirable way to use medical cannabis.
 
Drawbacks
 
The drawbacks to vaporizing principally have to do with cost. Vaporizers cost a great deal more than a simple bowl or bong and, because of that, some patients may not be able to afford the equipment used to vaporize.
 
Additionally, it is very difficult to tell based on sales information whether a vaporizer is actually good. The best way to make certain that any vaporizer you’re considering purchasing is worth the money is to talk to people at a dispensary. In some cases, they may even be able to recommend some brands that they know work very well. Because of the cost involved, you don’t want to waste your money on a substandard vaporizer that comes at a low price precisely because it doesn’t measure up to standards.
 
Vaporizing medical cannabis is one of the most popular ways to use it. For some people, it’s much better than smoking because of the reduced smell, because it’s easier on the lungs and, according to some people, because the effects that they experience are more intense.

Five Health Issues That Cannabis Help

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
medical-cannabis-helpFive Health Issues That Marijuana Helps
 
The most talked about disease that cannabis helps with is definitely cancer. However, the plant treats multiple afflictions that people suffer from. Not only that but cannabis is far healthier for people as compared to the drugs made for treatment. With cannabis being a natural way to benefit lives. it makes sense that we should be using it to treat these ten awful health problems.
 
1. Cancer
This is the big one. Cancer has effected more people that is necessary. The treatment for it is painful and some sufferers don't even survive that. If marijuana can help cancer patients (whether it be a complete cure or at least assistance to the dreaded chemotherapy), it should definitely be accessible for them.
 
Since marijuana allows muscles to relax and the user to think more slowly, those who have Tourette's greatly benefit from marijuana. Their speech improves greatly after smoking and you can literally see their bodies unwind. Cannabis has a much longer lasting effect of the symptoms of Tourette's as well, as compared to the placebo in a study done at Hanover Medical College in Germany.
 
This is being proven again and again in younger patients who have severe seizures. If the cannabis ingested is high in CBD, rather than THC, it seems to completely eradicate the symptoms from daily life. While it's not perfect yet, it seems that CBD will be able to help hundreds if not thousands of seizure sufferers.
 
4. ADD & ADHD
Especially in young children, ADD and ADHD are a big problem. Some argue that this disease is just kids being kids but whatever the case, medicines that are used to treat this affliction should not be given to kids. Adderall, Concerta, and Ritalin are all extremely powerful drugs that have scary effects on even the adults that take them, sometimes causing death. These drugs shouldn't be given to adults, forget giving it to kids. Marijuana has a calming effect on those that suffer from ADD and ADHD, without the loss of appetite and sped up heartbeat from the prescription pills.

Arizona parents sue state to treat son, 5, with marijuana extracts

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, November, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
parents-sue-az-for-cannabis-useTUCSON -- The parents of a 5-year-old Arizona boy are suing the state, seeking to treat their son’s seizure disorder with marijuana extracts under the state’s medical marijuana law.
 
The American Civil Liberties Union filed the suit on behalf of Jennifer and Jacob Welton, parents of young Zander. The Weltons, of Mesa, want to force the state to include marijuana extracts, such as oil resins, as legal substances under a law approved three years ago by voters.
 
The boy’s severe epilepsy is one symptom of a rare, congenital condition. This year, Arizona Department of Health Services officials approved a medical marijuana application for Zander, issuing the child a medical marijuana patient identification card. 
 
However, some state officials have suggested that only the marijuana plant — not its extract — is legal for medicinal purposes, ACLU officials said.
 
Fearing criminal prosecution, the couple stopped giving Zander the extract even though it had successfully treated his disorder, the complaint stated.
 
State officials targeted in the lawsuit, including Gov. Jan Brewer and the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, declined to comment.
 
 “When Arizona’s voters said 'yes' to legalizing medical marijuana for seriously ill patients in 2010, they certainly meant the plant as well as extracts from the plant,” ACLU attorney Emma Andersson said in a statement. “Casting a cloud of criminality over medical marijuana extracts is wrong and cruel.”

Arizona PTSD patients to be considered for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-for-ptsd-patientsPHOENIX - The Arizona Department of Health Services  is considering making medical marijuana available to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder patients.
 
The decision comes after the ADHS accepted a petition to list PTSD as a debilitating condition under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act on Oct. 6, according to a report from the Arizona Cannabis Nurses Association  (AZCNA).
 
During a public hearing Tuesday at the ADHS, the majority in attendance were in favor of the petition's goal including Vietnam veteran Gerold Deyoung who uses medical marijuana for other conditions but feels in the process, it has helped take away the pain of his PTSD.
 
However, one speaker, Dr. Leland Fairbanks, did not think it would cure veterans of PTSD completely and suggested that "they should join their veteran support groups" or "go to their veterans' hospital" instead.
 
According to the 2012 Department of Veterans Affair Report, 239,174 veterans were reported to have PTSD on Veterans Health Administration rosters.
