FDA Approves Trials For Marijuana-Based Epilepsy Medicine

fda-approved-medical-marijuana
The U.S. Federal Drug Administration has given unprecedented approval for two separate trials of Epidiolex, a liquid medicine made entirely of cannabis; the substance contains 98% cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive compound found in cannabis – the remaining 2% consist of various trace amounts of other cannabinoids.
 
The studies will be led by Orrin Devinsky, MD at New York University’s School of Medicine, and Roberta Cilio, MD, PhD, at the University of California.
 
Each study will involve 25 participants, all children.
 
Epidiolex is manufactured by GW Pharmaceuticals, the company behind Sativex, a cannabis-derived medicinal spray which has been approved for treating multiple sclerosis in multiple countries, including Canada.
 
According to Geoffrey Guy, MD, chairman of GW Pharmaceuticals, cannabidiol is more than just an anti-seizure agent. “It’s anti-inflammatory, neuro-modulatory, and has been shown in animals to counter neonatal hypoxic ischemia [oxygen starvation during delivery] —an important problem you see after seizures in these children.”

More Anti-Cancer Properties Of Marijuana Revealed

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-has-anti-cancer-propertiesStudies have shown that marijuana not only helps fight the symptoms of treating cancer but also the disease itself. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, often gets the credit for battling cancer cells, but a new study shows that THC isn’t working alone. The study conducted at St. George’s University of London, led by Dr. Wai Liu, examined six non-hallucinogenic chemicals found in marijuana, called cannabinoids. The study found that each of these chemicals showed anti-cancer properties as effective as THC. Furthermore, when these chemicals are used in combination, they have an even greater impact on cancer cells.
 
The anti-cancer properties of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary hallucinogenic component of cannabis, has been recognised for many years, but research into similar cannabis-derived compounds, known as cannabinoids, has been limited.
 
Of six cannabinoids studied, each demonstrated anti-cancer properties as effective as those seen in THC. Importantly, they had an increased effect on cancer cells when combined with each other.
 
Dr Liu said: “This study is a critical step in unpicking the mysteries of cannabis as a source of medicine. The cannabinoids examined have minimal, if any, hallucinogenic side effects, and their properties as anti-cancer agents are promising. These agents are able to interfere with the development of cancerous cells, stopping them in their tracks and preventing them from growing. In some cases, by using specific dosage patterns, they can destroy cancer cells on their own.”

Strain Review; Dutch Dragon

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
dutch-dragon-weed
I love when strains contain the word "Dragon" because smoking always reminds me of dragons, especially with the huge bong hits that people take these days! While this strain won't let you breathe real fire, she's pretty fire herself. The Dutch Dragon is a plant with huge potential... Literally. As a warmth loving plant, this strain can reach heights of 9ft tall if grown outside. That's no weed! That's a small tree!
 
This strain is something you'd smoke with a group of good friends. It creates a giggly, happy high that's sure to keep everyone in a good mood. It's highly effective in fighting pain and stress, while at the same time keeping you productive. The bud has almost a coffee-like high that people compare to their favorite morning drink. This is a great daytime smoker, definitely wake and bake material.
 
Reportedly, there are users who claim to feel slight headaches when the high from Dutch Dragon begins to wear off. Other than that, there really aren't any negatives aside from the normal dry mouth. The buds are dense, good looking, and contain a good amount of THC. Clear headed highs are the best kinds, especially for patients who are suffering but still want to go about their normal activities.

Marijuana Chemicals Help Protect Body's Nervous System From MS

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-compounds-help-fight-msAccording to a study reported in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology, chemical compounds which are found in marijuana could help treat multiple sclerosis.
 
Already being tested on mice, the study shows that marijuana helps prevent inflammation in the brain and spinal cord. "Inflammation is part of the body's natural immune response, but in cases like MS, it gets out of hand," says Dr. Ewa Kozela of Tel Aviv University, Israel.
 
Kozela continued by saying: "Our study looks at how compounds isolated from marijuana can be used to regulate inflammation to protect the nervous system and its functions."
 
Kozela also said that when marijuana is used wisely, it has a lot of potential, and that "We're just beginning to understand how it works."
