The Challenge Medical Marijuana Patients Probably Didn't See Coming

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

While the United States government refuses to admit the cannabis plant has any real medicinal benefit, its position has not prevented federal health agencies, over the years, from approving synthetic versions of the herb’s psychoactive component to be used by Big Pharma in the treatment of serious conditions.

In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), one of the primary barriers in the grand scheme of nationwide legalization, recently approved a liquid variety of synthetic tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) that will be sold to people suffering from AIDS and cancer.

Researchers: Cannabis Will Be the Next Hot Skincare Ingredient

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

The beauty industry loves new ingredients — as witnessed by the use of such gems as Cochineal beetles (skin creams, lipstick, etc.), bird poop for a Geisha facial and whale vomit – or ambergris – for making perfume.

And now, according to UK-based The Future Laboratory, cannabis will be the next big ingredient of choice for the beauty industry, including skin- and hair-care products; as well as makeup and perfume.

“Growing support for legalization and an increased awareness of the potential benefits of cannabis are the driving forces behind this ingredient,” said Victoria Buchanan, trend analyst at The Future Laboratory, to The Telegraph.

Pot’s anti-aging and protective capabilities alone are enough to make it a primary ingredient in skin care, according to two dermatologists interviewed by the Huffington Post.

We have all had a headache before, right?  Many of us will reach for ibuprofen or acetaminophen (or something stronger) to treat the pain.  However, if medical cannabis  were legal for everyone, we could be treating this ailment far more naturally with cannabis.

Chronic headaches, migraines and tension headaches are all painful conditions which can have debilitating effects on patients’ lives. An estimated 50% of the world’s population suffers from headache disorders, with over 2.7 million migraine sufferers reported in Canada.

Doctors Using Cannabis to Treat Autism in First-of-Its-Kind Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

After seeing marijuana’s success in treating epilepsy, an Israeli pediatrician has launched a clinical trial to study the effects of medical cannabis on autistic children and adults.

According to Haaretz, Dr. Adi Eran, head of the pediatrics neurology department at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, will be heading up the endeavor, which is in the process of obtaining permits from the Health Ministry. The study will reportedly involve 120 autistic individuals, male and female, aged 4 to 30, who are defined as low to medium functioning. Participants will be given cannabis oils free of THC but rich in CBD.

“Per the norm in proper clinical research, participants will be divided into two groups: the test group that actually ingests the oil, and the control subjects who will be given placebos,” Haaretz reported. “After a test period during which the effects on the patients will be recorded, treatment will be halted for a month, then the groups will be reversed—the test group will become the control group and vice versa. Again, as is typical in such research, at no point will subjects or their families know whether the patient is receiving CBD or a placebo.”

New Medical Marijuana Documentary Reveals Hidden Medical Marijuana Uses

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana is a myth. Or so say the Feds. Recently the Federal Government upheld the notion that medical marijuana delivers no medicinal value keeping it a schedule one drug in line with heroin and other lethal drugs. What’s funny is that while the feds claim that medical marijuana is a myth they have patterned marijuana as medicine. That’s why you’ve seen #6630507 scribbled on the hands of stoners all over the interwebs. Did you also know that under the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program the US Government mails several people medical marijuana every month? Every 30 days our buddy Irving Rosenfeld receives 9 ounces of weed rolled into joints. And he has for the past 33 years. Imagine what a rad monthly smoke box subscription that would be? Oh by the way—Irving, who has smoked more joints than anybody on the planet, rehydrates the government’s ol’ dried out weed, then re-rolls ‘it. We recently sent him a couple packs of Stuff Stoners Like roiling papers hoping to sponsor the guy. Anyhow as a result of all that government supplied medical marijuana Irv’s led a happy and productive life as a stockbroker in spite of being afflicted with a rare and painful bone disorder. He even chronicled his use of government chronic in a fascinating book.

A BIG QUESTION remains however—if the government has a patent on medical marijuana, grows medical marijuana and sends medical marijuana to medial marijuana patients across the country—how can they claim that marijuana has no medical value? According to Green Flower Media it’s because of one simple fact—ignorance.

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.”
