Science Says: What's known and not known about marijuana

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, May, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

A new marijuana study joins a limited record of scientific knowledge about the harms and benefits of pot.

The research published Wednesday is the first rigorous test of a marijuana compound in treating a certain form of severe epilepsy. It found that an ingredient of marijuana — one that doesn't give pot smokers a high — reduced the number of seizures in children.

In the U.S., more than two dozen states allow medical use of marijuana. Federal drug regulators have not approved marijuana itself, but they have allowed man-made, chemically related medicines to treat loss of appetite in people with AIDS, and nausea and vomiting caused by cancer therapy. A marijuana extract is sold in Britain for nerve pain and other problems from multiple sclerosis.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your System?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, May, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve covered how to pass a drug test for marijuana before. But, how long does marijuana stay in your system is the most frequently asked question that we receive. While there is no definitive answer, we have presented some guidelines.

The data used to create this infographic is gathered from research on drug testing methods and the information presented by drug screen manufacturers. Some resources include Redwood ToxicologyCannabis Drug TestingCalifornia NORML. The information presented is only a guide or estimate since drug testing has many variables that can influence a positive or negative outcome. The only way to really know if you are positive is to test yourself. You can test yourself with a cheap test by buying a THC urine drug test.

Grandmas, Execs, Athletes: BDS Analytics Consumer Research Upends Pot Stereotypes

Category: Tokers | Posted on Thu, May, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

A sweeping new report by BDS Analytics finally illustrates who is buying marijuana and for what reasons, with immense implications for topics like women’s health and wide range of industries. These findings come at time where lifting the canna-stigma and continuing to hold the line on cannabis policy reform might be more critical than ever.

Some of the biggest take-aways from the report include:

The cannabis market is a consumer driven market. Consumers in CA and CO are already starting to leave behind the stigmas and acceptance is on the rise:
80% of Rejectors (those who say they would never consider using marijuana themselves) in CO and 70% in CA believe there should be some form of legal marijuana
85% of Rejectors in CO and 81% in CA say they would want an ill loved one to use marijuana if it eased their suffering

What is the DUI Limit for Marijuana in States Where It’s Legal?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Tue, May, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

What is the DUI limit for marijuana in states where it’s legal?

As everyone is aware, recreational cannabis is now fully legal for adults up and down the West coast, as well as in Colorado, Nevada, Massachusetts, Maine, and D.C.  Psychoactive marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes in twenty other states, and counting.

Critics of legalization have complained that there will inevitably be a spike in drugged driving in these “green” states, due to increased availability and reduced social stigma.  The numbers do not necessarily prove naysayers’ predictions correct – at least not yet.  Nevertheless, some states (like Washington and Colorado) elected to pick a “per se” DUI threshold for THC similar to the .08 level for alcohol, presumably to assuage such concerns and get their legislation passed.

The Mental Health Benefits of Marijuana

Category: Tokers | Posted on Mon, May, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Many people have experienced the mental health benefits of marijuana. Using marijuana can decrease symptoms of several mental health issues, which demonstrates just one of the mental health benefits of marijuana. It gives those with mental health disorders the relief they need after experiencing even the most severe symptoms of their condition. Studies have shown that marijuana usage has several benefits, including the following from Mental Health Daily:

It can give you a much-needed mood boost.

When you smoke or ingest marijuana, your brain releases anandamide and dopamine. This means that it serves as an antidepressant and relaxes you. If you’re feeling stressed and are prone to anxiety and panic attacks, then marijuana could curb the side effects for you. A common mental health benefit of marijuana is to use it to boost your mood if you suffer from depression.

Finding the Best Life Insurance Companies for Marijuana Users

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, May, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

The national attitude toward marijuana is changing. Some states have legalized weed, others have it on their docket for 2017, and you can even invest in cannabis stock. Finding the best life insurance companies for marijuana users is important too. 

But where does that leave life insurance for marijuana users?

Marijuana’s legality is still hazy, and so are the guidelines that carriers use to rate applicants who use marijuana. Insurance carriers set policy premium rates – the amount you’ll pay every month – largely based on your health. The worse your health, the more you pay. Obviously they take smoking status and drug use into account, and that’s where marijuana can complicate things.
