Best Treatment for Migraines? Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
migraines-fixed-cannabisMarijuana is the best treatment for migraines, writes the father of internal medicine, Dr. Sir William Osler in “The Principles and Practice of Medicine” first published in 1892.
 
“Cannabis indica is probably the most satisfactory remedy [for migraines],” Osler wrote, agreeing with Edward Constant Seguin – the president of the New York Neurological Society and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons professor.
 
Such stunning endorsements for pot come courtesy of a new online medical cannabis study program initiated by TheAnswerPage.com, which is sponsored and accredited by the Massachusetts Medical Society – the oldest continuously-operating state medical society in the United States.
 
Founded in 1998, TheAnswerPage began offering Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses on medical marijuana July 9. While the information on TheAnswerPage is designed mainly for physicians and healthcare professionals, a daily Q&A on medical marijuana is written for the lay person.
 
For example, The Answer Page asks: “How many overdose deaths have occurred from cannabis?”
 
The answer? “Zero. Cannabis, even in concentrated forms, is incapable of causing overdose in humans.”

IL: Medical Marijuana Will Have to Wait for Now

SPRINGFIELD, IL — The Illinois state legislature adjourned last week without addressing a medical marijuana bill that some lawmakers hoped to push through before the end of the legislative session.
 
The bill will be reintroduced when the new legislative session begins later this month, and could see a vote within the first few months of the year.
 
“While disappointing, the news doesn’t come as a shock. We’ve been operating under a time crunch and against some competing issues all along,” said MPP legislative analyst Dan Riffle. “While this shouldn’t be a partisan issue, Illinois Democrats do tend to support medical marijuana more than their Republican counterparts.”
 
Following the November elections, Democrats now hold super-majorities in both the Illinois House and Senate.
 
Could this super-majority be the key to making Illinois the 19th medical marijuana state?
 
“It won’t be a slam dunk by any means, but we’re more optimistic heading into the next session than we were going into this one,” said Riffle.
 
Some Republicans in the Illinois House said they opposed legalizing medical marijuana because it could be a “gateway drug” to abuse of other illegal substances.
 
Democrat Rep. Lou Lang, sponsor of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, said in early November that he was closing in on enough votes in the House to pass the bill, but then delayed a late November vote on the bill because he did not want the bill to fail.
 
If passed, the bill would create a three year medical marijuana trail program in the state. Qualified patients would be allowed to buy and use up to 2.5 ounces of medical cannabis during a two-week period.
 
Illinois would become the second most populous state in the nation after California to allow medical marijuana.
 
Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana.

Can NH patients get medical marijuana in other states? Not really

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
nh-patientsWhile New Hampshire patients wait for marijuana dispensaries to be established in this state, a process that may take years, it’s easy to wonder whether they could just drive over the border and get their doctor’s order filled at dispensaries already up and running in neighboring states.
 
The answer? Not really.
 
The only possibility is Maine, whose medical marijuana law includes a “reciprocity clause” that allows out-of-state residents to get marijuana.
 
However, this is allowed only if you have a medical certificate from a physician or osteopath certified to practice in Maine. It’s not enough to have a certificate from your own doctor in New Hampshire; you’d have to establish a relationship with a Maine doctor, which at a minimum would include office visits.
 
That clause was designed “to allow people who summer in Maine, or college students, to get (marijuana),” said Marietta D’Agostino, director of the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. “We’re certainly not looking to have people drive up for the day to get it.”
 
Heading west instead of east won’t help: While Vermont’s medical marijuana law allows certificates from New Hampshire doctors, it is limited to Vermont residents only.
 
Massachusetts may have dispensaries operating by next year, but it is also limited to state residents.

Brandon Krenzler defends giving marijuana to ill 7-year-old daughter MyKayla

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
father-gives-child-marijuanaSHORTLY after MyKayla Comstock, 7, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia, her father Brandon Krenzler began administering marijuana to her.
 
The family live in Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, however the use of it by children remains controversial.
 
"She was very sick, she was in a lot of pain ... she was basically experiencing everything you wouldn't want your daughter to experience," Mr Krenzler told the Huffington Post.
 
Doctors initially suspected lactose intolerance before discovering a mass in her chest and making the cancer diagnosis. Her parents sought approval from her oncologist for cannabis use ten days after her diagnosis.
 
"The doctor’s response was not very good at all," Mr Krenzler says. "She called us, basically, criminals."
 
The family sought a new oncologist. Mostly, however, he says the medical professionals the family deals with will not be drawn on the subject, some asking that he "refrain from discussing their opinions with the media or anyone else at all."
 
Writing on his CannaDad blog, Mr Krenzler describes some of MyKayla’s symptoms in the weeks leading up to her diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia: fevers and spotty rashes, constantly coughing, severe stomach pain, a lack of appetite and night sweats.

You’ve got the green lungs, but now you’re ready to acquire the green thumb.

The joy you feel from growing your own smoke is amazing and the benefits are never-ending.

Growing can be confusing at first but with proper guidance and a good attention to detail anyone can be a successful MJ farmer.

Seeds

mj-grow-2

Starting out with quality seeds is where it all begins, there are plenty of websites that allow you to go on their site and pick which seeds you want and get them shipped to you. Some of these can have great seeds and others not so much, getting them from a grower or someone else you know with good seeds is another option to explore.  The next step is to germinate the seeds to get them ready for planting, you can do this by placing 4-6 seeds in- between a few moist paper towels and waiting for the little sprouts to pop out from the seeds, once this happens they’re ready for the soil.

Soil

  mj-grow-3  

You want to get the best soil you can get your hands on, the soil plays a very important role in the success of your grow.  Mixing the soil with sand or sponge rock would be a good idea to help the soil breathe.  The PH balance of your soil should be between 6.5 and 7.5, you don’t want overly acidic soil. Another issue some people run into is nutrients, you have to be careful not to add too many seeing as this will damage your plant and could burn your MJ roots. The best way to start nutes, is to add them gradually, letting the Mary get adjusted to them.

Lighting

   mj-grow-4   

Fluorescent lights work the best when growing some dank. Position the lights about 2 inches from the plant as not to burn them and give them room to grow up. The wattage and how long you need to have your lights on depends on where in the growing stage you are, though natural light is the best environment you can still get the job done with lights of your own

Water and Humidity

     mj-grow-5     

Watering is a crucial part of growing as well, over watering can lead to mold and mildew problems, which is also why you have to maintain the proper humidity in your growing area. Feel the plants to see if they’re moist, if so you can wait about 2-3 days before watering again. During light hours temperatures should be between 68-78 degrees Fahrenheit and dark hours about a 15 degree drop difference in temperature. Investing in a dehumidifier is a smart move that will help you regulate crop temps.

Now all there’s left to do is watch the green begin to roll in and to wait patiently for your crop to mature so you can let the drying process begin. You’ve done all the proper steps to getting yourself a higher than life stone…Be proud pot head.

What are Cannabis Concentrates

What are Cannabis Concentrates

mj-concentrates-1

The world of Cannabis Sativa is filled with millions of little ins and outs that help us pin point that million dollar high.

Cannabis Concentrates are a gift that keeps on giving, and in short concentrates are the pure form of the main active ingredients in MJ.

The first form of concentrates to hit the scene was the ever so talented hashish. Usually extracted by beating dried MJ and sieving it through nets to collect the fine dust that falls off, this can range in percentages of up to 70% THC content.

Though now days creative pot head minds have come up with brilliant new ways to get the stuff we love so much.

 mj-concentrates-2 

By using different solvents and chemicals is how many of our concentrates are made today.

Solvent made treats have been around since the 60’s and have only grown in popularity since then. One of the more popular ways to do this is by using Butane. The liquid butane dissolves trichomes on the buds turning them into oil called “Budder”. The process is a long one that involves evaporating the butane after use to remove it from the oil.

Though it’s a tedious process the efforts are greatly appreciated.

Medicinal patients find concentrated great for instant pain relief and peace.

Wax or “Earwax” is another of these that packs a hard punch and the THC content can spiral up to 80% and really get you feeling at home.

   mj-concentrates-3   

Kief is fine and powdery in consistency and is the loose dry resin glands or trichomes of Mary after you sift the buds through a mesh screen. Many grinders already come equipped with a screen for you to collect the kief after you’re done grinding.

The light brown snow that falls from the buds is heavenly, and very potent in THC content.

For a person dealing with chronic medicinal issues concentrates are a God send, the pure cannabinoids navigate through pain and get you feeling like yourself again. For the chronic toker looking to spice things up, wax, hash, or oil will be there to ride into the sky with you, happy experimenting!.
