Cannabis Use Significantly Reduces Frequency of Migraine Headaches, Study Finds

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Cannabis use significantly decreases the frequency of migraine headaches, according to a study published in the journalPharmacotherapy. The study, which is the first clinical trial to demonstrate the effects of cannabis use on human migraines, was e-published by the National Institute of Health.

“No clinical trials are currently available that demonstrate the effects of marijuana on patients with migraine headache”, the study’s abstract begins; “however, the potential effects of cannabinoids on serotonin in the central nervous system indicate that marijuana may be a therapeutic alternative”.

With this in mind, “the objective of this study was to describe the effects of medical marijuana on the monthly frequency of migraine headache.”

Researchers examined 121 adult migraine sufferers and found that; “Migraine headache frequency decreased from 10.4 to 4.6 headaches per month with the use of medical marijuana. Most patients used more than one form of marijuana and used it daily for prevention of migraine headache.” They continue; “Positive effects were reported in 48 patients (39.7%), with the most common effects reported being prevention of migraine headache with decreased frequency of migraine headache (24 patients [19.8%]) and aborted migraine headache (14 patients [11.6%]). Inhaled forms of marijuana were commonly used for acute migraine treatment and were reported to abort migraine headache.”

Delaware Governor Signs Bill Allowing those with Terminal Illness To Use Medical Cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed into law today legislation that allows those with terminal illnesses – including those under 18 with terminal illness-associated pain, anxiety or depression – to become legal medical cannabis patients.

Under Delaware law, medical cannabis has been legal for around five years. Patients who receive a recommendation from a physician and register with the state are entitled to possess, use and purchase medical cannabis, given they have a qualifying condition. The list of qualifying conditions includes ailments such as multiple sclerosis and seizures, though it doesn’t specifically include terminal illnesses. In three months, when the law takes effect, that will change.

The measure was named after Bob Jester, who was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer on his 62nd birthday.

Doctors Complain about Medical Marijuana Knowledge Gap

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

CNN recently interviewed a physician in Maine who said she would like to counsel her patients on the use of medical marijuana but feels unprepared.

And Maine passed its Medical Marijuana Act in 1999.

Dr. Jean Antonucci told CNN that she still feels “completely in the dark” about whether marijuana is the right way to treat an ailment, what the dose should be and whether a patient should smoke it, eat it, apply it or vaporize it.

Most physicians have never been trained to deal with these issues, which are still not covered in medical schools.

DOH Report: New York Should Expand Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

While the medical marijuana law in New York is often considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, the state could soon be persuaded to expand the reach of the program based on recommendations outlined in a new report from the state’s leading health agency.

Earlier this week, the New York State Health Department published a two-year analysis of the Compassionate Care Act, starting from the time the bill was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo. It insists the program is functioning better than other states with similar laws in place, at least in terms of the number of physicians and patients who are registered for participation.
