New Study: Marijuana May Treat Addiction To Hard Drugs

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
mj-helps-treat-addiction-to-hard-drugsAccording to a new study published last week by the National Institute of Health, cannabis may be an effective treatment in curing people of addiction from hard drugs such as cocaine and amphetamines.
 
According to researchers, this study “presents an up-to-date review with deep insights into the pivotal role of the ECBS [endocannabinod system] in the neurobiology of stimulant addiction and the effects of its modulation on addictive behaviors. They state that; “A growing number of studies support a critical role of the ECBS and its modulation by synthetic or natural cannabinoids in various neurobiological and behavioral aspects of stimulants addiction.”
 
For the study, researchers found that “cannabinoids modulate brain reward systems closely involved in stimulants addiction, and provide further evidence that the cannabinoid system could be explored as a potential drug discovery target for treating addiction across different classes of stimulants.”

Mom Chooses Medical Marijuana Over Chemo As Treatment For 3-Year-Old Son's Cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
medical-mj-over-chemoOne year ago, 3-year-old Landon Riddle was diagnosed with leukemia. Under doctors' orders, his mother Sierra Riddle began treatment for her young son: aggressive chemotherapy and radiation.
 
But while still living in Utah, Sierra watched her little boy become violently ill from the chemotherapy -- Landon suffered nerve-damage in his legs, nausea that led to vomiting dozens of times a day, intense pain and at one point went 25 days without eating following the treatment, according to CNN.
 
"Around the clock, he was usually on liquid morphine, Ativan, Promethexane," Sierra told CNN back in July. "And it just really didn't seem to be helping."
 
Feeling like her family "didn't have anything left to lose" she looked into medical marijuana treatment. She moved her family to Colorado Springs, Colo. to benefit from the state's marijuana laws and started to give Landon liquid forms of both Cannabidiol, or CBD, and Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC.
 
"Within four weeks we could see the improvement," Sierra told KRDO.
 
Users of medical marijuana have said that THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that is associated with the "high" sensation, can also be an effective pain killer as well as inhibit feelings of nausea.
 
And research from a pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco suggests that CBD, the non-toxic, non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, could actually stop metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer.
 
Sierra swapped chemotherapy for cannabis therapy and has seen her son return to his old energetic self and his cancer go into remission. Her decision to use medical marijuana as treatment for her son's cancer has raised some eyebrows in the traditional medical community -- so much so, that one Colorado doctor reported Sierra to Human Services for refusing chemotherapy for Landon.

Weed Wyoming ready to file Wyoming initiative for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
wyoming-medical-marijuanaWeed Wyoming will file a state ballot initiative for 2016 to permit medical marijuana use.
 
The nonprofit group drafted an initiative that focuses on medical rather than recreational uses of cannabis. Members believe it has a better chance than an all-or-nothing approach, according to a Weed Wyoming press release.
 
The initiative would allow people to cultivate up to 10 marijuana plants and possess up to 10 ounces. Smoking of marijuana would be permitted in any location that allows tobacco smoke.
 
The Wyoming chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is also attempting to place an initiative on the 2016 statewide ballot to legalize hemp and cannabis.

Study Finds Cannabis-Infused Microparticles Effectively Inhibit Tumor Growth

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-stop-tumorsA study published recently by the journal PLoS One, as well as the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-infused microparticles can be an effective anticancer agent.
 
For the study, researchers “analyzed CBD- and THC-loaded poly-ε-caprolactone microparticles as an alternative delivery system for long-term cannabinoid administration in a murine xenograft model of glioma [a type of tumor]”
 
According to the study; “In vitro characterization of THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles showed that this method of microencapsulation facilitates a sustained release of the two cannabinoids for several days”, it continues; “Local administration of THC-, CBD- or a mixture of THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles every 5 days to mice bearing glioma xenografts reduced tumour growth with the same efficacy than a daily local administration of the equivalent amount of those cannabinoids in solution”, demonstrating that the microparticles may be more effective at combating tumors than standardized forms of administration (such as inhalation or ingestion).
 
Researchers found conclusive evidence that “cannabinoid-loaded microparticles enhanced apoptosis and decreased cell proliferation and angiogenesis in these tumours.”
 
They conclude: “Our findings support that THC- and CBD-loaded microparticles could be used as an alternative method of cannabinoid delivery in anticancer therapies.”
