Florida: No Doctors to Prescribe Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

After spending two long years trying to figure out how to operate a restrictive medical marijuana program, one that allows only a handful of patients to gain access to low-THC strains of the herb, Florida officials announced last week that they were finally in the businesses of selling weed. However, while the news of this development may sound encouraging, some of the latest reports indicate that seriously ill patients are still struggling to get their hands of the state’s version of cannabis medicine because many doctors have simply refused to write recommendations.

In accordance with the Compassionate Cannabis Medical Act of 2014, patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy and a few other severe conditions can get a doctor to certify them to purchase a non-intoxicating brand of cannabis from any of the state’s licensed dispensaries. But, so far, the trick has been in locating a physician willing to sign off on this new therapy. A report from the Tallahassee Democrat indicates that there are currently only 25 doctors in the entire state of Florida that are authorized to make these recommendations. That is a substantial shortage of doctors, considering the state estimates 125,000 people will qualify for the program.

Big Weed Enters California’s Emerald Triangle

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Consisting of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, the area known as the Emerald Triangle holds a reputation for its ongoing history as a hub for cannabis cultivation. Now, nearly 20 years after California’s Medical Marijuana Program roll out, the region’s first licenses for commercial cannabis production have been issued.

Mendocino county approved licenses for two substantial grow operations – Honeydew farms LLC and Blessed Coast LLC – seen by some as the start of a new era for the cannabis industry.

Unsurprisingly voices of concern were raised, in particular those of some cannabis advocacy groups concerned the county is catering largely to big businesses.

New Research Shows Promise In Cannabis Fighting Dementia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Do you know someone suffering from dementia?  Chances are, you do (or have) because the sad statistic is that one in three seniors dies with dementia.  And the incidences are expected to triple in the near future.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.  The most promising research for Alzheimer’s disease?  Marijuana, but sadly, cannabis is illegal in most places.

EVERYONE SUFFERS BECAUSE OF DEMENTIA (WELL ALMOST EVERYONE)

Dementia is expensive.  The US estimates that in 2016, dementia will cost the country $236 Billion.  That’s a “B”. Billion.  (*Sheesh. With that much money in play, I imagine someone is profiting, somewhere?)

City OK’s Medical Marijuana – Instantly Erases Debt

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

“What a long strange trip its been…’ we listened to the citizens and created a package that was reflective of the population…”

This from Mayor Patrick Keogh of the central California city of Coalignia summing up six months of intense debate over marijuana policy. Now, with the allowance of cultivation and processing within the city, Coalinga was able to finalize a deal with Marijuana producer Ocean Grown Extracts regarding the sale of a dormant prison for use as a production facility.

The $4.1 million sale “will immediately bring Coalinga’s general fund into the black,” according to a report from The Fresno Bee. “City Manager Marissa Trejo said Coalinga was $3.3 million to $3.8 million in debt.”

Next Stop For the CBD Oil Industry: Dog Treats

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil, is one of the most common cannabinoids found in marijuana, along with THC. This oil is extracted from industrial hemp instead of recreational marijuana and sold in states across the country where it has already been legalized.

Although it is still not legally permitted in every state, it has risen in popularity over the last few years because of its medicinal uses. Consumers use CBD oil to alleviate general aches and pains, headaches, anxiety and other common ailments. It can currently be found in many forms including capsules, topical creams and tinctures. But, manufacturers have now found a new way to use CBD oil and wholesale distributors, retailers and consumers may be surprised to learn that it’s in dog treats!

FLORIDA’S FIRST MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARY WILL OPEN NEXT WEEK

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

It has been two years since Florida Governor Rick Scott put his signature on a modest bill legalizing low-THC cannabis products for the state’s seriously ill patients, an act that spawned more trials and tribulations than productivity, causing many of the people who qualify for the program to abandon all hope. However, the wait for medicine is apparently over – the state’s first medical marijuana dispensary is scheduled to open next week.

On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Heath gave permission to Trulieve, the state’s chosen cannabis company of the north, to begin selling medical marijuana in its Tallahassee dispensary and making deliveries to patients all over Florida. The dispensary will reportedly provide those people who qualify for participation in the program with non-smokeable cannabis products ranging from capsules to vapor liquids.
