Marijuana Can Treat Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia According To Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 31st 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-fight-cancersA new study published in the journal Case Reports in Oncology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis can treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the white blood cells.
 
According to researchers; “Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a cancer of the white blood cells and is typically well treated with combination chemotherapy, with a remission state after 5 years of 94% in children and 30-40% in adults. This case study is on a 14-year-old patient diagnosed with a very aggressive form of ALL (positive for the Philadelphia chromosome mutation). A standard bone marrow transplant, aggressive chemotherapy and radiation therapy were revoked, with treatment being deemed a failure after 34 months.”
 
They continue; “Without any other solutions provided by conventional approaches aside from palliation, the family administered cannabinoid extracts orally to the patient. Cannabinoid resin extract is used as an effective treatment for ALL with a positive Philadelphia chromosome mutation and indications of dose-dependent disease control.”
 
Researchers conclude that; “The clinical observation in this study revealed a rapid dose-dependent correlation”, indicating that the higher the dose, the better the results.

Strain Review; Berry Kush (Or Kush Berry)

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 29th 2014 by THCFinder

berry-kush-weedThis strain has two names so please don't bite my head off if you think one is the correct one. I've heard the strain called by both Kush Berry as well as Berry Kush so say it how you will. This strain is highly prized, with huge buds that are dark green in color, with some more highlighted tones as well. Overall, the bud looks pretty much the same throughout. Definitely a good looking strain and one that will surely catch your eye. The smell is very woodsy and earthy, with a somewhat citrusy scent as well. As for taste, it is aromatic and very floral. A very enjoyable strain.

For patients, Kush Berry is extremely good for patients that have issues with sleeping, nausea, pain, and stress. It is primarily prescribed to patients that have high anxiety and bad migraines. It gives the smoker a very happy, tingly high which is extremely good for patients in pain. Kush Berry is a strain that is recommended for people going through chemo, as it helps with the appetite issues, pain, and weakness that these patients in particular suffer from. It's is definitely a sought after strain and worth a shot if you see it at your local dispensary.

Overall, this strain is something that you should try, whether it's just to get stoned (it's a very beloved kush) or if it's needed for medical reasons. Give it a try if you see it on the shelf and I promise you'll have found one of your new favorite strains! Although, it is pretty safe to say that most marijuana strains are very well loved but this one in particular will not only make you feel better but will continue to make you feel great even after you get better!

Could Cannabis Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-arthritisA study published by the National Institute of Health has found that cannabinoid receptor activation – something done naturally by cannabis – may provide a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term disease that causes inflammation of the joints and tissues.
 
“Recent studies have suggested immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2R) activation”, states the study’s abstract.
 
Despite these recent studies, researchers say that the connection between these cannabinoid receptors and rheumatoid arthritis has been much less observed, leading them to conduct this study.
 
According to their researchers, data suggests that “CB2R may be a potential therapeutic target of RA [rheumatoid arthritis].”
 
The study will appear in this month’s issue of the Oxford journal Rheumatology. and was conducted by researchers at Changhai Hospital, the Second Military Medical University and Shanghai Guanghua Hospital, all in China.

New Poll Finds 65% In Florida Support Medical Marijuana Initiative

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
florida-mmjA new poll released Wednesday from Public Policy Polling has found that 65% of voters in Florida would support a ballot measure legalizing medical cannabis; considering they are almost certain to have such a measure on this November’s ballot, these high approval ratings may offer a promising prediction of Florida’s near future.
 
Participants were asked, “Would you support or oppose a ballot initiative allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes?”, and offered a simple choice: “Support”, “Oppose” or “Not sure”. While 12% responded that they were unsure, a clear majority were in favor: “Though marijuana possession is still criminalized in Florida, voters overwhelmingly support legalizing its use for medical purposes (65/23). Even 50% of Republicans support the medical marijuana initiative, with numbers highest among Independents (77/9)”, according to Public Policy Polling.
 
Even those who identified as “very conservative”, the group voicing the strongest opposition, polled at just 50% opposed, with 40% in favor and 10% unsure.
 
United for Care, the organization behind the initiative to legalize medical cannabis in Florida, recently submitted over 1 million signatures to put the measure to a vote this year (with just under 700,000 being required to put the issue to a vote); once validated, the initiative will be secured on this November’s ballot (pending a review by the Supreme Court).
 
The medical cannabis initiative Floridians may be voting on this year is a constitutional amendment, so it requires a 60% majority – but with months to educate the public and build even more support, 65% in favor this early on bodes well for its chance of passage.

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-can-help-prevent-suicideOne of the arguments against marijuana is that it may contribute to depression and suicide. Anti-pot smokers like to argue that stoners are seriously lazy and depressed but unfortunately for them, a study from Germany has been released saying that places where marijuana laws are lax and the plant is well loved, rates of suicide have actually decreased, rather than increase. Since suicide is most often caused by stress and marijuana takes away stress, it definitely makes sense that cannabis would allow people to release their stress, causing a drop in suicide rates.
 
California supplies anxiety patients with medical cards and both Delaware and New Mexico have PTSD listed on their lists of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. In these areas, there's been a 5% reduction in suicide rates, especially in males age 20-29, according to this study. The results suggest that since those that use marijuana drink considerably less alcohol, which is a serious depressant. If stoners drink less, that would also mean that the amount of drunk driving accidents may decrease in these areas as well and that the benefits aren't just restricted to those suffering from depression.
 
Most subjects tested were male, since females are four times less likely to commit suicide and succeed, according to researchers. The bottom line of this study? Legalizing marijuana leads to an improvement in the mental well being of most young adult males, resulting in fewer suicides. So the next time that some tries to tell you that cannabis promotes depression and suicide, just remember that depression and suicide are caused by stress. Marijuana is used as a treatment for both of those illnesses so it only makes sense that places with lax cannabis laws would have lower rates of suicide.
