Topical Cannabis

For those patients that work 8 hour days or just don't have time to sit around and smoke, it can be difficult to mediate properly. Sometimes, people just can't get enough weed in to their system to feel better, such as some people that are afflicted by PTSD. Some are beginning to discover a better way for extreme sufferers to mediate. A patch, put on one's skin, that puts THC and CBD in to the bloodstream via transdermal delivery.
 
As with smoking or eating cannabis, the amount of patch used depends on the patient using it. Everyone has a different tolerance to THC and CBD so the size of the patch depends on the user. The cannabinoids in the patch are directly delivered to the bloodstream, creating extreme relief. The patch releases the stored cannabinoids over the course of 8 hours. Even after the 8 hours are up and the patch is removed, the effects are still felt. This benefits people who work long hours yet still need to medicate or patients that deal with extremely high tolerances and apparent resistance to smoking THC.
 
Not only is cannabis effective in the patch form, but other methods are equally effective in treating symptoms by transdermal delivery. Soaps and lotions are very effective for people with joint pain and arthritis. The lotions especially are good for specific areas of pain, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. The patch is recommended for patients that need higher doses of medicine continuously. This method is extremely fast acting and effective, allowing the patient to go about their day normally.
 
Basic medicine, such as using cannabis as a topical treatment, would be so beneficial to people. Not everyone can afford health insurance or to even go to the doctor in the first place. Having a plant like cannabis that can grow virtually anywhere would save thousands, if not millions, of dollars that people are forced to spend on costly medical care. Cannabis medicine can be virtually free to people who need it. Products like topical cannabis can help immensely and it's so sad that it's not being utilized to it's full potential.

Government Funded Study Using Human Subjects Finds THC May Treat PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
study-shows-cannabis-helps-treat-ptsdA new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, and conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan, Harvard Medical School and the University of Illinois, have found promising evidence to suggest that cannabis can treat the primary symptoms associated with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
 
“This study provides the first evidence that pre-extinction administration of THC modulates prefrontal-limbic circuits during fear extinction in humans and prompts future investigation to test if cannabinoid agonists can rescue or correct the impaired behavioral and neural function during extinction recall in patients with PTSD”, says Dr. Christine A. Rabinak, an author of the study who works at the University of Michigan’s Department of Psychiatry.
 
She continues; “Ultimately, the cannabinoid system may serve as a promising target for innovative intervention strategies (e.g. pharmacological enhancement of exposure-based therapy) in PTSD and other fear learning-related disorders.”

Four Medical Studies That Say Marijuana Prevents Breast Cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
studies-show-marijuana-helps-prevent-breastcancer
Most people know that cannabis is a huge benefit to people suffering with cancer. But as always, there are still some disbelievers. More studies are done on cannabis every day, proving again and again that the plant helps more than hurts. As the doctors and scientists continue to release information, it gets harder for people to deny. The following four studies are medical and show proof the cannabis prevents breast cancer.
 
1. The US National Library of Medicine found that CBD inhibits human breast cancer cell formation. This study also showed that CBD reduces tumor size.
 
2. Published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, this study determined that THC and CBD drastically reduce breast cancer cell growth.
 
3. The medical Journal Molecular Cancer stated that cannabinoid treatments have a great impact in managing breast cancer. It went on to say that THC reduced tumor size and number.
 
4. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States said that cannabinoids inhibit breast cancer cell proliferation, or the production of the cancer cells themselves.
 
If this doesn't convince people, then I'm unsure of what it would take to actually convince people that cannabis is not only a cure but a preventative matter. These studies are held in high regard and have been tested multiple times. Those that are still convinced that "marijuana is a gateway drug" and that stoners are "lazy and unproductive" will eventually realize that their opinion isn't valid anymore. Either way, more than half of American citizens back marijuana legalization, for all purposes medical and recreational. All we can do is keep moving towards that goal by education.

Cannabis & Diabetes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, November, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-and-diabetes-helpMany people assume that marijuana and munchies go hand in hand. Not anymore, it seems. Although marijuana makes people hungry, not only are stoners trying to be more appetite conscious but there are new (and old) studies being released showing that marijuana might be keeping stoners slim. So perhaps stoners like snacks but their cannabis usage is actually helping to keep them slim. Not only that but the plant actually lowers the risk of diabetes in stoners.
 
Marijuana can prevent people from being diagnosed with diabetes. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey showed that cannabis users had fasting insulin levels that were 16% lower than people who were not regular smokers. The stoners also had a 17% drop in a different measure of insulin resistance. Both of these tests are used by doctors to diagnose Type II diabetes if the levels of these tests are too high. The smokers in this survey also seemed to have higher levels of lipoprotein, the "good" cholesterol, which can protect people from heart disease. Add in the fact that the results showed regulars marijuana users had an average 1.5 inches smaller than people who had quit smoking marijuana or have never smoked it.
 
There isn't a whole lot of research from solid scientific sources on this topic. The survey stated above was based on reported marijuana use from the users themselves, which can possible be unreliable. However, since marijuana is mostly still illegal, those that reported their marijuana use seemed to be somewhat truthful and may have even held back slightly, so the effects of the plant may be underrated. Whatever the case, marijuana could be a great way to prevent diabetes, if these tests can be redone and studied more carefully.
 
Marijuana is beginning to really show it's true colors for what it is; a miracle cure and preventer. To have the knowledge that this medicine exists and we're not utilizing it is so sad. More people begin to come forward and say that marijuana helps them, whether it's with cancer, epilepsy, diabetes, and everything else that's out there. Once the ball really gets rolling in Colorado and Washington, we should begin to see more scientific information being released, regarding what cannabis can help us with.

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.”
