FDA Has Approved MDMA Trials for PTSD Treatment

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved several phase-3 trials of 3, 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), otherwise known as ecstasy, for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Researchers believe the drug could be the best new treatment for the disorder.

The American Psychiatric Association published an article last week that said researchers have already done 16 years of trials on the drug and have come to believe that it could be a breakthrough therapy for people suffering from severe PTSD.

The founder of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) Rick Doblin said that “For the first time ever, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy will be evaluated in Phase 3 trials for possible prescription use, with MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD leading the way. Now that we have agreement with FDA, we are ready to start negotiations with the European Medicines Agency.”

Imagine the NBA possibilities with legal marijuana: David Stern

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, October, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

David Stern has come around to a drug he used to campaign hard against. The only problem for players and medical marijuana advocates is he’s three years removed from his spot atop the NBA’s governing body.

Appearing in a documentary on “Uninterrupted,” a media site founded by LeBron James and driven by the players, the former NBA commissioner argued for marijuana to be taken off the league’s list of banned substances. Studying up on the physical benefits of using the drug, the 75-year-old Stern said, has convinced him “there’s universal agreement that marijuana for medical purposes should be completely legal.”

Stern was of the opposite mindset during his 30-year tenure, placing more restrictions on the use of marijuana as players’ secret treatments were coming out.

Study Finds Marijuana Decreases Pediatric Seizures and Treats Chemo-Induced Nausea

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, October, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

A new study by the Massachusetts General Hospital has found that medical marijuana is an effective treatment for children who suffer from seizures or going through cancer related chemotherapy. The study was published Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics Journal.

The researchers conducted 11 studies of medical marijuana on epilepsy and 6 on chemotherapy. The findings showed that cannabidiol (CBD) from the cannabis plant decreased seizures in young patients. Dr. Shane Shucheng Wong and Dr. Timothy Wilens, both psychiatrists at Massachusetts General Hospital, concluded that medical marijuana has two therapeutic uses for pediatrics; seizure reduction and nausea relief from chemotherapy, according to the Science Daily. The doctors also found that medical marijuana worked better on chemotherapy patients than anti-nausea drugs.

Here’s Why Scientists Gave Fish Weed

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Everyone knows cannabis is big business. And this prospect of economic growth and opportunity, of course, is one of the most persuasive arguments in the case for legalization. From seed to smoke, the cannabis industry stretches across multiple sectors of the economy. But who could have guessed that weed would attract the attention of the aquaculture industry as a means to increase profit margins?  But some in the aquaculture, or fish-farming industry, are hoping cannabis can help their bottom line. Here’s why scientists gave fish weed.

Fish Farmers Hope Weed Will Help Fish Chill Out

Like other food industries, the aquaculture industry is fast-moving toward a large-scale, factory-style production system. Where once fish were farmed from extensive pond systems, now they’re grown and harvested from what are essentially barrels.

7 Arrested in San Diego Medical Marijuana Delivery Sting

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department reportedly arrested seven medical marijuana delivery providers last week, after a sting, in which officers placed orders and lured the drivers to a golf course in Santee, California.

How The Sting Was Set Up

Dan Shook, who manages the MMJ delivery services, San Diego Organics and San Diego Native, said that several other operators received orders over a span of several hours on October 12.

All of the requests for cannabis were accompanied by a digital copy of a medical marijuana recommendation signed by a physician licensed by the State of California. A verification service was used to confirm the recommendation as valid, and photos of a California driver’s license in the same name as the patient were also provided with the orders.

How Legal Cannabis Is Saving Lives in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

New research published in the American Journal of Public Health says legal cannabis is saving lives in Colorado. How exactly is weed saving lives in the state? Since marijuana legalization, Colorado has seen a decrease in the number of opioid-related deaths. Monthly opioid deaths in Colorado were on a steady rise until legalization in 2014.

Recreational Cannabis Impacts Opioid Mortality Rate

Researchers examined the association between Colorado’s legalization of recreational cannabis use and opioid-related mortality.

Using data from the years 2000-2015, the authors of the study found a decrease in opioid-related deaths in the two years following Colorado’s legalization.

“After Colorado’s legalization of recreational cannabis sale and use, opioid-related deaths decreased more than 6 percent in the following 2 years,” wrote authors Melvin D. Livingston, Tracey E. Barnett, Chris Delcher and Alexander C. Wagenaar.
