The Bliss Gene: Some People are Naturally High

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

Most of us know someone who always seems laid back, free of anxiety and does not to cling to negative memories.

How do they do it?

According to recent neuroscience research, 20 percent of Americans and Europeans were born with a lucky genetic mutation. They naturally produce higher levels of anandamide, a neurotransmitter in the brain that binds to the THC receptor, the psychoactive component in marijuana.

Anandamide, which comes from the word ananda and means bliss in Sanskrit, is the body’s own version of weed.

New Medical Marijuana Study on Executive Functioning Lauded as First of Its Kind

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, November, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

There are already over 1.2 million medical marijuana users in the United States who seek treatment for a variety of debilitating symptoms from pain to epilepsy. That number may grow on Tuesday when voters in a number of states will decide whether or not to legalize marijuana possession for medicinal purposes. This may feel like a modern-day issue, where generations of Americans are afforded legal access to medical marijuana for the first time. And beyond legalization, this move may validate marijuana’s medicinal utility to many individuals.

But of course, this is not a new idea.

From 1851 to 1942, marijuana was included in the U.S. Pharmacopeia, which identified and standardized the identity, strength and quality of medicines. Regular submissions detailing the medicinal utility of marijuana were made until pressure from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (an early predecessor of the DEA) forced its omission. Then, all was quiet.

New Study Suggests Cannabis Improves Night Vision

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

As we all know, weed can have some strange effects on our minds and bodies. New research now suggests an added benefit we could all use—better night vision.

This theory is not totally new but proof has been lacking.

Twenty-five years ago, a pharmacologist at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica noted that a local fisherman who smoked weed and drank rum made from cannabis leaves and stems seemed to have “an uncanny ability to see in the dark.” And back in 2002, a team of researchers from the U.S. and Spain set out to confirm rumors that Moroccan fishermen and people living in rural mountain areas who smoked hash had an extraordinary ability to visibly see objects in the near dark.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

According to a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, purified CBD can lead the full remission of seizures in those with epilepsy.

The study, which was published online by the National Institute of Health, is titled “Δ9-THC Intoxication by Cannabidiol-Enriched Cannabis Extract in Two Children with Refractory Epilepsy: Full Remission after Switching to Purified Cannabidiol”.

According to the study’s abstract; “Animal studies and preliminary clinical trials have shown that cannabidiol (CBD)-enriched extracts may have beneficial effects for children with treatment-resistant epilepsy.” However, these compounds “are not yet registered as medicines by regulatory agencies.”

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Charlotte Figi had her first seizure when she was three months old. It began after a warm bath, a common precursor to the first seizures in Dravet Syndrome. Within a couple of years, she was experiencing over 300 spontaneous grand mal seizures a week.

You may have heard of Charlotte’s story. She’s been featured on 60 Minutes, in a CNN documentary and is the namesake of a popular medicinal compound. The beginning of her story is common for children with Dravet Syndrome, a severe childhood disorder caused by a genetic mutation that impairs the brain’s neuronal “brake.”
