Recent progress in the neurotoxicology of natural drugs associated with dependence or addiction, their endogenous agonists and receptors. (1/374)

Nicotine in tobacco, tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 9-THC) in marijuana and morphine in opium are well known as drugs associated with dependence or addiction. Endogenous active substances that mimic the effects of the natural drugs and their respective receptors have been found in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS). Such active substances and receptors include acetylcholine (ACh) and the nicotinic ACh receptor (nAChR) for nicotine, anandamide and CB1 for delta 9-THC, and endomorphins (1 and 2) and the mu (OP3) opioid receptor for morphine, respectively. Considerable progress has been made in studies on neurotoxicity, in terms of the habituation, dependence and withdrawal phenomena associated with these drugs and with respect to correlations with endogenous active substances and their receptors. In this article we shall review recent findings related to the neurotoxicity of tobacco, marijuana and opium, and their toxic ingredients, nicotine, delta 9-THC and morphine in relation to their respective endogenous agents and receptors in the CNS.  (+info)

Cannabis use and cognitive decline in persons under 65 years of age. (2/374)

The purpose of this study was to investigate possible adverse effects of cannabis use on cognitive decline after 12 years in persons under age 65 years. This was a follow-up study of a probability sample of the adult household residents of East Baltimore. The analyses included 1,318 participants in the Baltimore, Maryland, portion of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area study who completed the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) during three study waves in 1981, 1982, and 1993-1996. Individual MMSE score differences between waves 2 and 3 were calculated for each study participant. After 12 years, study participants' scores declined a mean of 1.20 points on the MMSE (standard deviation 1.90), with 66% having scores that declined by at least one point. Significant numbers of scores declined by three points or more (15% of participants in the 18-29 age group). There were no significant differences in cognitive decline between heavy users, light users, and nonusers of cannabis. There were also no male-female differences in cognitive decline in relation to cannabis use. The authors conclude that over long time periods, in persons under age 65 years, cognitive decline occurs in all age groups. This decline is closely associated with aging and educational level but does not appear to be associated with cannabis use.  (+info)

Nail analysis for drugs of abuse: extraction and determination of cannabis in fingernails by RIA and GC-MS. (3/374)

Fingernail clippings were evaluated as analytical specimens for the detection and quantitation of cannabinoids. Specimens were obtained from consenting adults attending a drug clinic, along with information concerning the drugs which they had used over the previous six months. Methods for the surface decontamination and extraction of the specimens were evaluated. Detergent, water, and methanol washes followed by alkaline hydrolysis and liquid-liquid extraction were selected for use in the study. Extracts were analyzed by radioimmunoassay (RIA) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to detect and quantitate cannabinoids present in fingernail clippings. Positive RIA results were obtained from specimens from six known cannabis users. The mean cannabinoid concentration in fingernail clippings determined by RIA was 1.03 ng/mg. Using GC-MS, the mean delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration in fingernail clippings from a further 14 known cannabis users was 1.44 ng/mg. Using GC-MS, the average 11-nor-delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol-9-carboxylic acid concentration in fingernail clippings from three known cannabis users extracted in acidic pH was 19.85 ng/mg. Based on these results, fingernails are potentially useful biological specimens for the detection of past cannabis use in cases of medicolegal interest.  (+info)

Urinary excretion profiles of 11-nor-9-carboxy-delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol: a delta9-THCCOOH to creatinine ratio study. (4/374)

Monitoring the major cannabinoid metabolite (delta9-THCCOOH) to creatinine ratio (M/C) has been used to predict new drug use. According to Huestis and Cone, the best accuracy (85.4%) for predicting new marijuana use was a ratio > or = 0.5 from two urine specimens collected at least 24 h apart. Manno et al. recommended an M/C ratio of > or = 1.5. Subjects with a history of chronic marijuana use were screened for cannabinoid use by immunoassay (50-ng/mL cutoff), and presumptive positives were confirmed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for delta9-THCCOOH (15-ng/mL cutoff). Creatinine was analyzed with a cutoff concentration of 25 mg/dL. The study objective was to apply the criteria from both groups of workers to determine if consecutive urine specimens (collected at least 24 h apart) positive for cannabinoids could be used to differentiate new marijuana use from the excretion of residual cannabinoid metabolite (delta9-THCCOOH) in an uncontrolled setting. Serial urine specimens (826) were collected from 26 individuals. Huestis and Cone and Manno et al. ratios indicated new drug use in 83% and 33% of serial urine specimens collected at least 24 h apart, respectively. Clinically, the Huestis and Cone ratio is recommended because of a lower false-negative rate (7.4%) than the Manno et al. false-negative rate (24%). In legal situations, we recommend using the Manno et al. ratio because of its lower false-positive rate (0.1%) as stated by Huestis and Cone.  (+info)

Marijuana: medical implications. (5/374)

Over 50 percent of people will use marijuana sometime in their life. While intoxication lasts two to three hours, the active ingredient in marijuana, delta-9-tetrahydro-cannabinol, can accumulate in fatty tissues, including the brain and testes. Adverse effects from marijuana use include decreased coordination, epithelial damage to the lungs, increased risk of infection, cardiovascular effects and cognitive deficits. Unexplained behavior changes, altered social relationships and poor performance at school or work can signify a drug problem. Treatment requires a combination of education, social support, drug monitoring and attention to comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions.  (+info)

Detection of drug misuse--an addictive challenge. (6/374)

It is now accepted that drug misuse is a large and growing problem in the United Kingdom, some estimates of the number of regular illicit drug users being as high as three million. The aim of this paper is to provide insight into the methods used to detect drug misuse. The strategy adopted by one laboratory is described and methods of screening for, and identification of, a wide range of compounds are provided. No claim is made that this is the best approach or that the list of drugs detected is comprehensive; the range of drugs encountered is always increasing and the lists are constantly updated. It is hoped that users of toxicology laboratory services will gain an appreciation of the capabilities and limitations of the techniques available; and that those who may wish to provide such a service will find the necessary information in a readily accessible format.  (+info)

Purification and some properties of an aminopeptidase from the seeds of Cannabis sativa. (7/374)

An aminopeptidase (HSA) with a molecular mass of 78 kDa was purified from hemp (Cannabis sativa) seeds. The activity was inhibited by monoiodeacetic acid, p-chloromercuri-phenylsulfonic acid, and Zn2+ ion. The specificity of HSA was similar to that of a leucyl aminopeptidase [EC] from mammalian cytosol. However, other enzyme properties were different from these of leucyl aminopeptidase.  (+info)

Marijuana smoking and reduced pressure in human eyes: drug action or epiphenomenon? (8/374)

Normal pressure within the human eye was reduced after smoking a socially relevant dose of marijuana (12 mg. delta9-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), but only for light to moderate users who experienced a substantial "high" and a state of peaceful relaxation from the experimental dose. Analysis suggests an indirect effect of the drug associated with relaxation-a psychophysiologic state that can be produced by drug and nondrug means.  (+info)

N2 - Δ1-Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) synthase is the enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative cyclization of cannabigerolic acid into THCA, the acidic precursor of Δ1-tetrahydrocannabinol. We developed a novel expression system for THCA synthase using a methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris as a host. Under optimized conditions, the transgenic P. pastoris secreted ∼1.32 nkat/l of THCA synthase activity, and the culture medium, from which the cells were removed, effectively synthesized THCA from cannabigerolic acid with a ∼98% conversion rate. The secreted THCA synthase was readily purified to homogeneity. Interestingly, endoglycosidase treatment afforded a deglycosylated THCA synthase with more ...

Mediavilla, Vito and Simon Steinemann 1997. Essential oil of Cannabis sativa L. strains. Journal of the International Hemp Association 4(2): 80 - 82. The aroma of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) could be of considerable commercial value if evaluation of varieties and development of extraction methods led to a pleasing scent in the resulting essential oils. We compared the composition and smell of some fiber hemp and drug Cannabis essential oils isolated by steam distillation. The essential oil of some hemp strains contained particular monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes that imparted to the specimen a desireable scent. These preliminary one-year results do not take into account the influence that harvest time and the weather just-before-harvest could have on the quality of the essential oil. The Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration in the essential oils was very low and varied between 0.02% and 0.08%. The ratio of this compound to cannabidiol showed only small changes during steam ...

Hemp, Cannabis sativa, is one of the worlds oldest sources of food and medicine, with a history that dates back ten thousand years. It relieves glaucoma, epilepsy, migraines, insomnia, asthma, the nausea associated with AIDS and chemotherapy, and a host of other conditions. It was once a staple in every American medicine cabinet, but because hemp is the plant from which marijuana is derived, it has been unavailable to consumers until recently. Now products made from imported hempseed are sold by stores and mail-order companies across the United States to satisfy a growing demand. Hemp for Health reveals the developments that have returned this ancient plant to the forefront of health and nutrition and that have doctors calling for its legalization.The author provides everything from recipes using hempseed, and an analysis of cannabiss therapeutic effect on the nervous system, to current information on bills that are currently moving through several state legislatures to legalize domestic hemp
For many anesthesiologists, discussions with patients and colleagues about cannabis have been occurring more often. Cannabis, also called marijuana, contains various components that activate the endocannabinoid system, including delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), both of which have been topics of national discourse.1,2 The need for better evidence regarding the effects of cannabis and its various cannabinoid and noncannabinoid components that impact the health of patients is especially heightened as cannabis is increasingly viewed by patients as an alternative to opioids. One question relevant to the anesthesiology community is whether patients who have a diagnosis of active cannabis use disorder have an increased risk of negative outcomes after surgery. Here, it is important to differentiate use of cannabis from cannabis use disorder, in which patients have problems from cannabis use that lead to significant impairment.... ...
Historical cannabis. The cannabis was restricted by the early Islamic world during the 14th century. And by the 19th century is started to restrict in foreign countries. At that time cannabis also results in racial discrimination. By the 20th century, it was found to be restricted approximately all over the world. But in this 21st century, some nations changed their session regarding the usage of cannabis. Netherland became the first nation for the legalizement of cannabis. After that Uruguay recreates cannabis and in 2015 it legalizes cannabis. It also ties up with Canada in this process. South Africa establish its legalizement in 2018 but with the rule that cannabis should be used at home alone. Cannabis is considered to be an indigenous product of India and Asia. Hemp is used instead of cannabis during the early periods. From 8000BC cannabis is found to be cultivated in Japan. It was proved by architecture in the Islands. It was used for its fire character and for its psychoactive ...
We determined the prevalence and correlates of cannabis use in Massachusetts after recreational use was passed, but before recreational cannabis stores opened. A cross-sectional, population-based survey of Massachusetts adults, age 18 years or older, (n = 3,022) was conducted in November-December, 2017. We estimated population-level prevalence and correlates of past 30-day cannabis use. 21.1% [95% CI: 18.6, 23.6] of Massachusetts adults reported past 30-day cannabis use. Among cannabis users, 56.0% [CI 49.1, 62.9] reported non-medical cannabis use, 15.5% [12.1, 18.9] reported medical cannabis use, and 28.5% [CI 22.3, 34.8] reported both types of use. Men were more likely than women to use cannabis (Risk Ratio: 1.3 [CI 1.1, 1.6]), as were young adults (18-25 years old), those with lower socioeconomic status, non-parenting individuals, those who used alcohol (1.9 [CI 1.4, 2.6]) or other substances (1.7 [CI 1.3, 2.4]), and residents of Western Massachusetts (2.0 [1.3, 3.0]; ref: Boston area), the ...

New Jersey Cannabis Legislation Dissected by Charles X Gormally of Brach Eichlers Cannabis Law Practice. After reviewing the proposed adult-use cannabis legislation on March 12, 2019, Co-Chair Cannabis Practice Group Charles X Gormally of Brach Eichlers Cannabis Law Practice has several thoughts on the bill. He and his colleague John Fanburg have compiled these thoughts to help better understand and make sense of the bill. Charles X Gormally has been part of the cannabis discussion for a decade, representing medical cannabis clients since 2009.. 1. The key obstacle to previous versions of the adult-use cannabis bill was urban legislators, who did not feel there was enough attention on social and economic justice issues. The current bill provides encouragement if minority- and women-owned businesses. However, Charles X Gormally said creating micro-markets is unrealistic. The bill doesnt limit the number of licenses, perhaps in an attempt to make their value low enough to attract entrepreneurs, ...
Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit substance in the world (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2018). Despite past criminalization, various states have begun to decriminalize cannabis for recreational and medical use; however, research on the effect of cannabis use on mental health is divided. Research on specific mental health disorders, like generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and cannabis use is lacking. This study aimed to understand whether cannabis use affected individuals likelihood of meeting criteria for GAD by using a nationally representative longitudinal dataset. Results indicated that the inclusion of cannabis use did not explain additional variability in meeting criteria for GAD, suggesting that the relationship between GAD and cannabis use is not a straightforward causal relationship. Secondary analysis indicated history of anxiety or mood disorder and seeking mental health were significant predictors at all levels of GAD. Findings highlight the need to further explore the
Biologically speaking, cannabis and hemp plants fall under the same single plant species. However, two distinct variants of Cannabis sativa L. exist. The difference can be seen in their outward appearance, at least to some extent. Cannabis plants are usually grown for their full flower buds rich in resin glands. These specimens are usually broad-leaved with compact buds or colas. Hemp plants, by contrast, are usually thinner and stretchier, and often much taller than their non-hemp cannabis relatives. In addition, their buds are usually smaller, with less resin covering the flowers. Still, the difference can be hard to tell, so the best way to keep these two variants apart is by looking at how they are used. The main difference between hemp and non-hemp cannabis is the THC content of both kinds. Cannabis sativa L. plants can only be called hemp plants as long as they contain less than .3% THC. That is far too little to cause a high effect. Just for reference: marijuana cannabis available in ...
for individual ingestion.. Cannabis Science and Pot is Quite Different. You use a plant from which THC may be expressed. THC could be your component thats accountable for thehigher that many users knowledge. With Cannabis Science you might be simply searching for the genes thatll get the plant to grow in a manner that is particular out.. In the event you tried to cultivate Cannabis that you have to always masterpapers do it the tricky way. Always remember that the key to Cannabis Science will be to cultivate Cannabis plants in an identical way everytime because this is going to lead to development patterns.. Know what each one develops best and Now, you would need to research the genetics of ones plants. This is going to make your Cannabis Science much easier. But, you might need to perform slightly more research in order to locate.. When it arrives to Cannabis Genetics, Something else you should consider when analyzing Cannabis Genetics is that there are no true tell tale signs. This means ...
M lleken, H. and H. Husmann 1997. Cannabinoids in seed extracts of Cannabis sativa cultivars. Journal of the International Hemp Association 4(2): 73, 76-79. Cannabinoids are of great interest for pharmaceutical and medical purposes. However, as some of them are also used as recreational drugs, forensic and economic problems could result if they occur in food products made from hemp seeds with cannabinoid concentrations that are high enough to have a psychoactive effect. We have therefore (a) developed a method to determine cannabinoids in microgram quantities in every hemp product or in any part of the plant within 15-30-minutes analysis time and (b) analyzed various hemp oils and plant extracts of Cannabis cultivars from the EU and other regions to determine their cannabinoid content. Our investigations have proven that the active substance cannot be found inside the achene, but may be attached to the shell (pericarp) of the fruit. Thus, the content of THC in hemp oil can come only as a result ...
What is the difference between Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (also called Hemp Seed Oil), and CBD?. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (or Hemp Seed Oil) and CBD are not the same thing. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (or Hemp Seed Oil) comes from cold pressing the seeds of the Hemp plant and contains no Cannabinoids because theyre not present in Hemp seeds. CBD, on the other hand, is extracted from the flower and leaves of the Hemp plant, which are high in Cannabinoids. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (or Hemp Seed Oil) is great for moisturizing the skin, but that is all it does. While the Cannabinoids found in CBD are responsible for skin saving benefits such as its anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the appearance of acne and redness (and have been reported to help soothe rosacea, psoriasis and eczema), along with antioxidant and neuro-regenerative properties that help to slow the visible signs of aging. ...
Passage of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (commonly known as the Farm Bill) into law on Thursday, December 20, 2018 is anticipated to encourage rapid growth in the burgeoning U.S. hemp industry. The $867 billion Farm Bill legalizes industrial hemp, a boon for cannabidiol, or CBD oil. Under the Farm Bill, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will regulate hemp, which will no longer be considered a controlled substance under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). The Bill will go into effect January 1, 2019.. Industrial hemp is considered any part of the cannabis plant with no more than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabibol (THC) on a dry weight basis. Farm Bill Sec. 10113 (amending 7 U.S.C. 1621 et seq.). Section 12619 of the Farm Bill formally removes hemp-derived products from Schedule I status under the Controlled Substances Act, although it does not legalize CBD more broadly. The Farm Bill authorizes CBD only to the extent that it is contained in hemp ...

Botanically speaking, marijuana and hemp are derived from the same plant: Cannabis sativa.. However, they are both different varieties but the major differentiator is in how they are used. Hemp is widely cultivated and harvested for its seed and stalk, which are then used to create a wide range of industrial products including paper, textile, building materials, body care products, and even food.. Hemp isnt generally smoked, although a small niche of CBD users are staring to try CBD pre-rolled joints and CBD hemp flower, because it only contains roughly 0.3% of THC, which is what gets you high.. Meanwhile, marijuana is used recreationally or medicinally for its other chemical compounds such as THC and CBD. It contains 5% or more THC, sometimes as much as 25% THC.. Industrial hemps low THC content is what makes it legal throughout the country, largely in part because of the 2018 Farm Bill. Because of the many uses of hemp, the market is estimated to grow 34% annually, reaching a valuation of a ...
For many new medical Cannabis patients in South Africa, Cannabis and Cannabis terminology may be quite daunting. From words such as the Entourage Effect, Endocannabioid system to Cannabinoids, a lot of these terms might as well be a foreign language. But dont fear were here to help you understand more about the Cannabis plant and its many medicinal properties.. The field of cannabis research is vast and diverse. From biochemical studies of the plant itself to physiological and chemical studies of its pharmacology to psychological and social research into its effects, researchers studying cannabis produce the knowledge at the foundation of industry innovation and public policy. Yet perhaps the most important research being done in this new era of expanded access to legal Cannabis pertains to just one facet of the plant: the humble cannabinoid. Cannabinoids, the chemicals that qualify the plant as a drug, are the sine qua non of the commercial and medical significance of Cannabis.. Cannabis ...
This is a list of the annual prevalence of cannabis use by country (including some territories) as a percentage of the population aged 15-64 (unless otherwise indicated).

Aims To assess if cannabis use is a risk factor for future psychotic symptoms, and vice versa, in adolescents and young adults from the general population.. Design Cohort study.. Setting/participants Zuid Holland study, a 14-year follow-up study of 1580 initially 4-16-year-olds who were drawn randomly from the Dutch general population. Because cannabis use is generally condoned in the Netherlands, false-negative reports of cannabis use may occur less frequently than in countries with stricter drug policies, which supports the value of the present study.. Measurements Life-time cannabis use and psychotic symptoms, assessed with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI).. Findings Cannabis use, in individuals who did not have psychotic symptoms before they began using cannabis, predicted future psychotic symptoms (hazard ratio = 2.81; 95% confidence interval = 1.79-4.43). However, psychotic symptoms in those who had never used cannabis before the onset of psychotic symptoms also ...
abstractNote = {Cannabis is a drug derived from hemp plant, Cannabis sativa, used both as a recreational drug or as medicine. It is a widespread illegal substance, generally smoked for its hallucinogenic properties. Little is known about the adverse effects of postnatal cannabis exposure throw breast feeding because of a lack of studies in lactating women. The active substance of cannabis is the delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Some studies conclude that it could decrease motor development of the child at one year of age. Therefore, cannabis use and abuse of other drugs like alcohol, tobacco, or cocaine must be contraindicated during breast feeding. Mothers who use cannabis must stop breast feeding, or ask for medical assistance to stop cannabis use in order to provide her baby with all the benefits of human milk ...
Along with legalizing cannabis comes the need to legislate its use, and one potential safety issue that lawmakers grapple with is the effect of cannabis on drivers. But is criminalizing cannabis use while driving worth the effort?. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can produce mind-altering effects on its consumers which some say presents safety concerns for those on the road. To date, eleven states plus Washington D.C. have legalized recreational cannabis, with other states contemplating their own legislation.. According to data acquired by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) from surveying cannabis users in Colorado and Washington - two states where recreational cannabis is legal - THC levels increased in drivers on the road and among drivers involved in collisions since its legalization. Fatal crashes involving cannabis use also increased in both Washington and Colorado.. These results reflect a correlation but not a causation. If more people were using cannabis, other statistics would ...

Cannabis use can be documented as far back as 2700BC(1) in ancient Chinese writings. These writings tell us that cannabis was used by the Chinese for a variety of uses. These included fiber, oil, and as a medicine. By 450bc history tells us that cannabis was being cultivated in the mid-east region. From Afghanistan to Egypt hemp was cultivated for its fiber, medical and recreational use. It appears that Cannabis was first introduced into Europe around 500AD. It is known that cannabis was in wide cultivation in Europe by the 16th century. It was cultivated for its fiber and seed. The seed was cooked with barley and other grains and eaten.. In 1537 Dioscorides called the plant Cannabis Sativa, the scientific name that stands to this day as the plants true name. He notes its use in the stoutest cords and also its medicinal properties(2). Cannabis was introduced into Chile about 1545(3) where it was grown for fiber. Cannabis was introduced into New England soon after Puritan Immigrants settled, ...
Objective: Comorbidity between anxiety and cannabis use is common yet the nature of the association between these conditions is not clear. Four theories were assessed, and a fifth hypothesis tested to determine if the misattribution of stress symptomology plays a role in the association between state-anxiety and cannabis.Methods: Three-hundred-sixteen participants ranging in age from 18 to 71 years completed a short online questionnaire asking about their history of cannabis use and symptoms of stress and anxiety.Results: Past and current cannabis users reported higher incidence of lifetime anxiety than participants who had never used cannabis; however, these groups did not differ in state-anxiety, stress, or age of onset of anxiety. State-anxiety and stress were not associated with frequency of cannabis use, but reported use to self-medicate for anxiety was positively associated with all three. Path analyses indicated two different associations between anxiety and cannabis use, pre-existing and high
Cannabis dispensaries in the United States or marijuana dispensaries are a local government regulated physical location, typically inside a retail storefront or office building, in which a person can purchase cannabis and cannabis related items for medical or recreational use. First modeled in Amsterdam in the late 1970s where they were innocently called coffee shops, it would take the Americans more than a generation to successfully duplicate the idea of a retail cannabis storefront. Unlike the Dutch coffee shops, today dispensary customers are prevented from consuming cannabis on the site of a regulated dispensary in all known markets. In a traditional Medical cannabis dispensary store a patient receives cannabis medication as allowed per the patients doctors recommendation.[1] These dispensaries sell cannabis products that have not been approved by the FDA and are not legally registered with the federal government.[2] As of 2016 there are state regulated marijuana dispensaries in ...

Amsterdam, The Netherlands: The regular use of cannabis by young people is not associated with hippocampal volume alterations, according to case-control longitudinal data published online ahead of print in the Journal of Psychopharmacology.. Investigators from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom conducted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans at baseline and at follow up (average of 39-months post-baseline) in 20 habitual cannabis users and in 23 non-using controls.. Authors reported: Compared to controls, cannabis users did not show hippocampal volume alterations at either baseline or follow-up. Hippocampal volumes increased over time in both cannabis users and controls, following similar trajectories of increase. Cannabis dose and age of onset of cannabis use did not affect hippocampal volumes.. They concluded, Continued heavy cannabis use did not affect hippocampal neuroanatomical changes in early adulthood. … These data suggest that cannabis users show the same developmental trends ...
pain pills.. The promising benefits of medical marijuana have caused a 15-fold increase in veterans seeking cannabis for treatment. However, Veterans Affairs Canada is known to discourage veterans from using medical marijuana and is reluctant to pay for the treatment.. The federal government has recently announced the former 10 gram limit will be reduced to three grams, which is primarily due to the increasing cost. Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr explained that in 2016, about $75 million was set aside for medical cannabis because of the increase of veterans who want to use medical marijuana to treat PTSD. Henry believes the Canadian governments unwillingness to provide medical marijuana to veterans is also because of the governments official position on cannabis, which was made known in a report by Michael Ferguson, Canadas Auditor General.. It is thought the governments stand on medical marijuana may make it difficult for veterans to get a prescription, which is because doctors are now ...
According to a new study, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), a compound found in cannabis, may be useful in treating neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases.
Beware 2020 Could Be A Banner Year For IRS Audits Of Cannabis Businesses. We previously reported in our blog that the Trump Administration organized a committee of federal agencies from across the government to combat public support for marijuana and cast state legalization measures in a negative light while attempting to portray the drug as a national threat. The IRS appears to be following the agenda of the Trump Administration when it comes to Cannabis and has formed special audit groups that are tasked with conducting cannabis tax audits on medical and recreational cannabis businesses. Yes - Cannabis Businesses Have to Report Income To IRS And Pay Taxes!. While the sale of cannabis is legal in California as well as in a growing number of states, cannabis remains a Schedule 1 narcotic under Federal law, the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) 21 U.S.C. § 812. As such businesses in the cannabis industry are not treated like ordinary businesses. Despite state laws allowing cannabis, it remains ...
Cannabis, like other drugs, can be harmful to your health. The risks are increased when use begins in the teen years and when cannabis is used on a daily or near-daily basis. People with a history of drug and/or mental health problems are also at an increased risk for experiencing harms related to cannabis use.. What are the short-term risks of using cannabis? Cannabis has different effects on different people which vary depending on many factors including the type and amount of product used. Some people who use cannabis may feel relaxed and happy. Others may become quiet and withdrawn or experience anxiety, panic attacks, fearfulness and paranoia. Some of the immediate physical effects of cannabis are red eyes, increased heart rate, drop in blood pressure, and light-headedness. When high on cannabis people may also experience altered senses (for example, seeing brighter colors), altered sense of time, reduced balance and coordination, difficulty with thinking and problem-solving and difficulty ...

A common classification is the chemotypical division into a drug type, an intermediate type and a fiber type (Brenneisen 1987). The content of the most important psychotropic compound, the cannabinoid THC, is high in Cannabis of the drug type and low in the fiber hemp (Table 1). The THC content in industrial hemp that farmers may cultivate for subsidy in the European Union, and are permitted to grow in Canada, is restricted to a maximum of 0.3% with CBD:THC ratio of ,2:1. Australia has recently raised this level to 1%. Cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic compound, is the predominant cannabinoid in these hemp varieties. The median THC concentration of confiscated marijuana in the USA in 1997 was 4.2% (ElSohly 1998). Hemp with a THC-content lower than 1%, and also with a CBD-content higher than it s THC, was not classified as marijuana in this analysis of 35,312 samples confiscated in the USA between 1980 and 1997, but as ditchweed (ElSohly 1998). Ditchweed is feral hemp, wild-growing and weedy ...
The scheduling under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs assumes a scientific justification. However, cannabis and cannabis resin have never been evaluated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) since it was mandated the review of psychoactive substances in 1948. The last evaluation for the international substance control conventions were therefore when the League of Nations evaluated them in 1924 and 1935.. In 80 years since that decision, both the social context of cannabis use and the science of drug dependence have dramatically changed. Yet, because there has never been a formal review, both herbal cannabis and cannabis resin continue to remain under the strictest drug control regime possible. As a result, in the absence of a recent scientific assessment, the continued prohibition of cannabis is completely illegitimate even though it may be legal.. With this wide ranging report (discussing topics from its effects on cognition and learning to mental health and therapeutic benefits), ...
Individuals will be recruited who are currently users of cannabis and alcohol to participate in this study. They will undergo a physical exam at screening. There will be six study visits where the subject will arrive at the Clinical Research Unit(University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics) the night before dosing. At each visit subjects will be receive one of the following six dosing regimens: placebo alcohol with placebo cannabis; placebo alcohol with low-dose cannabis, placebo alcohol with higher-dose of cannabis, low dose alcohol with placebo cannabis; low dose alcohol with low dose cannabis, low dose alcohol with higher-dose of cannabis. After dosing, participants will have provide saliva samples and blood drawn periodically to check cannabis levels and will complete a driving simulation. After completing the drive, additional saliva samples and blood draws will occur and participants will be monitored until it is safe to transport home ...
(Prevalence of Daily Cannabis Use Among Youth in Canada) Eight of the nine provinces with student drug use surveys ask about daily or almost daily use of cannabis in the past month. Overall, 2.2-5.3% of students report smoking cannabis every day or almost every day in the past 30 days (Table 31 and Figure 31). In four of the eight provinces, the prevalence of daily or almost daily cannabis use was significantly greater among males than females (Table 32 and Figure 32). When examined by grade, the same pattern as noted in all previous indicators emerges.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Residual Effects of THC via Novel Measures of Brain Perfusion and Metabolism in a Large Group of Chronic Cannabis Users. AU - Filbey, Francesca M.. AU - Aslan, Sina. AU - Lu, Hanzhang. AU - Peng, Shin Lei. PY - 2018/3/1. Y1 - 2018/3/1. N2 - Given the known vascular effects of cannabis, this study examined the neurophysiological factors that may affect studies of brain activity in cannabis users. We conducted a systematic evaluation in 72 h abstinent, chronic cannabis users (N=74) and nonusing controls (N=101) to determine the association between prolonged cannabis use and the following neurophysiological indicators: (1) global and regional resting cerebral blood flow (CBF), (2) oxygen extraction fraction (OEF), and (3) cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen (CMRO 2). We found that cannabis users had greater global OEF and CMRO 2 compared with nonusers. Regionally, we found higher CBF in the right pallidum/putamen of the cannabis users compared with nonusers. Global resting CBF and ...

Abstract Objective: Cannabis use is associated with a younger age at onset of psychosis, an indicator of poor prognosis, but better cognitive function, a positive prognostic indicator. We aimed to clarify the role of age at onset and cognition on outcomes in cannabis users with first-episode schizophrenia as well as the effect of cannabis dose and cessation of use. Methods: Ninety-nine patients without alcohol or substance abuse other than cannabis were divided into lifetime users and never-users of cannabis and compared on measures of premorbid function, cognition, and clinical outcome. Results: Cannabis users demonstrated better cognition at psychosis onset, which was explained by higher premorbid IQ. They also showed better social function and neither measure changed over the subsequent 15 months. Cannabis users had an earlier age at onset of psychosis, and there was a strong linear relationship between age at first cannabis use and age at onset of both prodromal and psychotic symptoms. ...
Marketing Cannabidiol (CBD) in the EU has become more complex and, in some cases, is subject to national restrictions. Shops selling products containing Cannabidiol (CBD) are popping-up across Europe drawing more and more attention on the legality, write Katia Merten-Lentz and Manon Ombredane of international law firm Keller & Heckman. Cannabis sativa L is a well-known plant made up of more than 480 compounds, including over 100 cannabinoids composed of both psychoactive and non-psychoactive compounds including CBD. CBD contained in food products like tinctures is often derived from the industrial hemp variety cannabis sativa L. which contains low level of Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (|0,2%). Setting aside the question of the classification of cannabis under International Drug Control Conventions and the possible safety issue related to the presence of THC, food containing CBD must - as any other foodstuff - comply with the food legislation. This includes Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 on
Persistent cannabis use over 20 y was associated with neuropsychological decline, and greater decline was evident for more persistent users. This effect was concentrated among adolescent-onset cannabis users, a finding consistent with results of several studies showing executive functioning or verbal IQ deficits among adolescent-onset but not adult-onset chronic cannabis users (8, 10, 14, 15), as well as studies showing impairment of learning, memory, and executive functions in samples of adolescent cannabis users (11⇓-13, 32).. The present study advances knowledge in five ways. First, by investigating the association between persistent cannabis use and neuropsychological functioning prospectively, we ruled out premorbid neuropsychological deficit as an explanation of the link between persistent cannabis use and neuropsychological impairment occurring after persistent use. Second, we showed that the impairment was global and detectable across five domains of neuropsychological functioning. ...
A high prevalence of cannabis use disorder has been reported in subjects suffering from schizophrenia, fuelling intense debate about whether schizophrenia with pre-onset cannabis use disorder may be a distinct entity with specific features or whether cannabis use disorder can precipitate schizophrenia in genetically vulnerable subjects. We retrospectively assessed schizophrenia subjects with and without pre-onset cannabis use disorder on the basis of their clinical features, assessed categorically and dimensionally with the operational criteria checklist for psychotic illnesses (OCCPI). We also investigated whether the two groups could be differentiated on the basis of a history of psychiatric disorders in first-degree relatives. A principal component factor analysis of the OCCPI items was used to identify specific symptom dimensions. The relationships between symptom dimensions and cannabis status were analysed by point-biserial correlation analysis to control for sex and age at time of the
A new Washington law has school districts across the state coming up with new marijuana measures. The law requires school districts to allow students with prescriptions to receive medical marijuana on campus from a parent. The Mukilteo School District is one of the first in the state to create and implement a policy regarding medical marijuana for students after the new law went into effect in July. So how does their policy work? The Mukilteo School District tells us parents have to put in a request with their students school administration and then prove that their child is a medical marijuana patient. As part of the new state law, smoking or inhaling marijuana is not allowed. However, parents will be able to come to the school and give their students medical marijuana products in a discreet location. The school district will not handle or store the marijuana medication at any point. Mukilteo School District officials say their goal is to make sure their students medical needs are met in a safe ...
There are both male cannabis plants and female cannabis plants. Because an unpollinated female plant produces far greater concentrations of drug substances than a male plant, these unpollinated females are cultivated for medicinal use. The cannabis plant concentrates its medicine within the female flower clusters. Each flower consists of a curled single leaf known as a calyx. Each calyx is covered with vast numbers of tiny hair-like gland cells called trichomes.. Under magnification, a trichome resembles a golfball sitting atop a tee. The ball is the trichomes resin head, a waxy pillow of oils filled from secretory cells in the trichomes tip. When these delicate resin heads rupture, they release the intense aromatic chemicals called terpenes that are associated with the distinctive smell of cannabis, while cannabinoids such as THC are odorless. The resin heads contain the most medically interesting chemicals produced by the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids and terpenes. Both cannabinoids ...
Here is the appended abstract taken from our CBD supplier, Nuleaf, telling you about our CBD origins for our Carolyns Facial Fitness, cbd Cream. About CBD Oil. What is CBD?. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.. Whats the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana?. Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (cannabis sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.. How do you know how much CBD is in your products?. Our CBD ...
I was just in California and was recently informed by a doctor that I have a condition called cannabinoid-induced peripheral neuropathy.. The disease affects my legs, arms, hands, feet and face.. This has led to my doctor recommending cannabis oil for me.. I was shocked.. Cannabis is legal and available in most places.. It is legal to grow it, to consume it, and it is widely available.. I have had no problems with the drug, and I do not want to get this one-time recommendation.. It was my first time talking to a doctor about cannabis and I am very grateful.. This doctor is not a medical cannabis advocate, but he told me about cannabis oil.. The doctor is a licensed clinical psychologist and is not affiliated with any cannabis dispensary.. He also recommended a cannabis oil that I could not find in California, called Cannapetrol.. Its not recommended by any medical or other organizations.. Cannapeterol is available from specialty cannabis dispensaries in California.. I asked my doctor if I could ...
A small number of studies have looked into the concept of cannabis dependence, comparing frequent (1) or daily cannabis users with and without dependence (Looby and Earleywine, 2007; van der Pol et al., 2013), or populations with self-perceived treatment need to populations without this perception (Copeland et al., 2001). Depending on the population studied, somewhere between 25% and 50% of daily cannabis users will fulfil the criteria for dependence (NIDA, 2012). A general conclusion that can be drawn from these studies is that, while frequent to daily use of cannabis is a strong predictor of cannabis-related problems (Fischer et al., 2011), these accumulate even more in users with (probable) dependence.. Although the above-mentioned studies have found relatively small differences in the frequency or intensity of use or quantity of cannabis used between dependent and non-dependent frequent or daily users, marked differences were identified between dependent and non-dependent users in the levels ...

To the Editor: Cannabis use is implicated in serious social disruption in many Northern Territory Aboriginal communities.1 Rising levels of cannabis use were first reported in Aboriginal communities in Arnhem Land in 2002, along with associated concerns about escalating social impacts and mental health effects compounded by other substance use.2. A random sample of 164 people in Arnhem Land initially interviewed and assessed in 2004 were followed up between October 2005 and June 2006. Their cannabis use was measured using health worker assessments and self-reports from interviews. Ethical approval was granted by the NT Health Department, Menzies School of Health Research, and James Cook University.. Despite a modest decline in cannabis use in this population between 2002 and 2004,3 the 2005-2006 data indicate persisting high rates, with 61% of males and 58% of females (aged 13-34 years) using cannabis at least weekly.. In a subsample of 60 cannabis users opportunistically recruited for in-depth ...
Frisher and colleagues compared the trends of cannabis use with general practitioner records of schizophrenia. They argue if cannabis use does cause schizophrenia, then an increase in cannabis use should be followed by an increase in the incidence of schizophrenia.. According to the study, cannabis use in the UK between 1972 and 2002 has increased four-fold in the general population, and 18-fold among under-18s. Based on the literature supporting the link, the authors argue that this should be followed by an increase in schizophrenia incidence of 29% between 1990 and 2010.. But the researchers found no increase in the diagnosis of schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders during that period. In fact some of the data suggested the incidence of these conditions had decreased.. This study does not therefore support the specific causal link between cannabis use and the incidence of psychotic disorders, the authors say. This concurs with other reports indicating that increases in population ...
A total of forty (40) male wistar rats randomly divided into four groups of ten (10) rats per group were used for this work. Group 1 served as the control and was treated with distilled water, group 2 was the low dose group (exposed to cannabis smoke for 5minutes daily), group 3 was the high dose group (exposed to cannabis smoke for 10minutes daily) and group 4 was the high dose + ascorbic acid group (exposed to cannabis smoke for 10 minutes and orally gavaged with ascorbic acid at 2.8mg/kg body weight daily). The rats were weighed weekly and the administration lasted for 28days. The animals were sacrificed on the 29th day and blood was collected by means of cardiac puncture. Serum was obtained for hormonal assay. The result showed a significant increase in the body weight (p|0.05) in the high dose group compared to low dose and high dose + ascorbic acid group, while the control group recorded the least body weight gained. There was significant decrease in testicular weight (p|0.05) in the experimental
Regardless of how much momentum the medical marijuana reimbursement movement gains or how many states legalize the substance, there is still one giant problem: The federal government classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug - a designation it uses on substances like heroin, LSD and ecstasy.. This classification gives marijuana the harshest range of criminal penalties and is the reason why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration hasnt approved medical marijuana and, in all likelihood, wont until it is reclassified to a lower schedule.. The Schedule I tag is also why, even if employers would like to offer medical marijuana reimbursement, they will likely have a difficult time finding an insurance provider thats willing to offer health insurance or workers comp plans that cover medical marijuana.. Self-insured plans can cover medical marijuana. However, the patchwork of state and local regs combined with the uncertainty of the feds stance, makes this a far from easy proposition for employers, ...

Paul Nichols, Bergen Dispatch. Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) today stood with patients, their families and advocates to announce new bipartisan legislation that will allow the use of medical marijuana in states where it is legal without fear of federal prosecution. The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act would reschedule marijuana from a Schedule I to Schedule II drug to recognize it has accepted medical use, and would amend federal law to allow states to set their own medical marijuana policies.. The bill would also permit VA doctors to prescribe veterans medical marijuana to treat serious injuries and chronic conditions. The legislation would not legalize medical marijuana in all 50 states, rather it would respect the states that set their own medical marijuana programs and prevents federal law enforcement from prosecuting patients, doctors and caregivers in those states. Currently, 23 states plus the District ...
As an example, the phrase (or cannabis) is made use of when defining a Cannabis Sativa plant that is bred for its own effective, resinous glands (known as trichomes). These trichomes include high volumes of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid very most known for its psychedelic properties., however, is used to illustrate a Cannabis Sativa plant that has merely indication quantities of THC.. Merely products produced from commercial hemp (lower than 0.3% THC) are legal to market, purchase, consume, as well as ship. This singular factor (0.3%) is actually how most individuals compare what is identified as hemp as well as what is categorized as cannabis. This limitation has actually resulted in mass controversy (forever reason), which our team will plunge right into a little later.. From hemp apparel and also devices to diet plans and also hempseed oil cosmetics, the plant is actually seemingly found just about ...
All the cannabis users in the study had experienced psychotic-like symptoms (strange sensations, such as strange sensations or having feelings of paranoia) while smoking pot.The investigators anticipated their dopamine production to be elevated since increased production of the chemical has been linked with psychosis. However, to their surprise, they found the opposite effect.. Experts attribute drug use to the difference in dopamine levels. Users who met the diagnostic criteria for chronic cannabis abuse displayed the lowest dopamine levels, an indication that it could be a marker of severe addiction. Earlier research has revealed that the risk of mental illnesses such as schizophrenia is more pronounced in chronic cannabis users.. Bloomfield explained, It has been assumed that cannabis increases the risk of schizophrenia by inducing the same effects on the dopamine system that we see in schizophrenia, but this hasnt been studied in active cannabis users until now.. Although we only looked ...
Following the passage of Proposition 64 in California, the Center for Medical Cannabis Research at UC San Diego will receive two million dollars in funding per year for the study of medical marijuana. The money comes from two new taxes levied on the cultivation and sale of cannabis. The proposition, which legalized marijuana, also authorized local governments to place additional taxes on marijuana. The Center for Medical Cannabis Research at UCSD studies the effects of marijuana on alleviating neuropathic pain stemming from a variety of causes such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis and chronic back pain. Neuropathic pain is caused when nerves are damaged or dysfunctional. The CMCR is currently conducting research on the effects of cannabis on driving ability as well.. To test the effects of cannabis on driving, healthy volunteers are placed in a driving simulator and undergo performance assessments after being exposed to cannabis. Trials measuring the pain-relieving effects of marijuana may use ...
CANNABIS CULTURE - The techniques of preparation for disease fighting, life preserving elixirs was the core for many medieval and renaissance alchemists, and this was an adaption from Islamic influences that came into Europe following the Crusades.. In references to figures such as Lully, Paracelsus, Jerome Cardan, etc Albert G. Mackey in his Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, wrote that these figures were not occultists…They had been physicians and chemists; the alchemy they studied was chemistry, and they studied it for medical uses… (along with botany, etc.) (Mackey, 1873). Interestingly, as I have found while researching my forthcomign book, Liber 420: The Cannabis Arcanum (Trineday, 2018), all 3 of the figures mentioned by name have associations with cannabis elixirs, Cardano and Paracelsus both left recipes for cannabis preparations, and cannabis appears in a number of Lullian texts.. For now, lets just take a quick look at Paracelsus recipe for a cannabis infused arcanum, a name given ...

Considering the advantages of using medicinal herbs as supplementary treatments to sensitize conventional anti-cancer drugs, studying functional mechanisms and regulatory effects of Echinacea purpurea (as a non-cannabinoid plant) and Cannabis sativa (as a cannabinoid plant) are timely and required. The potential effects of such herbs on lung cancer cell growth, apoptosis, cell cycle distribution, cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) level, caspase activity and their cannabinomimetic properties on the CB2 receptor are addressed in the current study. The cytotoxic effect of both herb extracts on the growth of lung cancer cells (A549) was assessed using the MTT assay. The annexin-V-FITC staining and propidium iodide (PI) staining methods were applied for the detection of apoptosis and cell cycle distribution using flow cytometry. The cellular level of ROS was measured using 7′-dichlorofluorescin diacetate (DCFH-DA) as a fluorescent probe in flow cytometry. The caspase 3 activity was assessed using a

It has been widely reported that WHO officially recommended on December 14, 2017 that cannabis compound cannabidiol (CBD) not be internationally scheduled as a controlled substance.. What is Cannabidiol and is it safe?. Cannabidiol is one of several (probably 200) compounds of the cannabis plant.. At its November 2017 meeting, the WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) concluded that, in its pure state, cannabidiol does not appear to have abuse potential or cause harm. As such, as CBD is not currently a scheduled substance in its own right (only as a component of cannabis extracts), current information does not justify a change in this scheduling position and does not justify scheduling of the substance.. However, where CBD is produced for pharmaceutical purposes as an extract of cannabis, cannabis extracts and tinctures are included in the 1961 UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. A fuller review of extracts or preparations containing almost exclusively CBD will take place in June ...

Although cannabis comes from the female flower, cannabis has been marketed to and perceived to be used mostly by men. The tides are turning as more women, especially older women, are turning to cannabis as an alternative to opioids and over-the-counter medications. Women have different health needs than men, and certain medical marijuana products can prove to be effective in both preventative and reactive medical treatments.. As cannabis is well-known for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, its little wonder that women have used it to combat menstrual pain and soreness for centuries. Most famously, Queen Victoria was prescribed a cannabis indica tincture by her personal physicians for spasmodic dysmenorrhoea, aka menstrual cramps. As early as the 11th century, the Old English Herbarium recommended a hemp-infused topical for soreness of breasts.. More recently, actress Whoopi Goldberg has advocated for dysmenorrhoea as a qualifying condition for medical cannabis. Both New York and ...
A bill introduced in Congress would allow Department of Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend medical marijuana for their patients.. The Veterans Equal Access Act. Introduced Thursday by Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) with 10 bipartisan cosponsors, would lift a ban on VA doctors giving opinions or recommendations about medical marijuana to veterans who live in states where medical marijuana is permitted. Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury are just as damaging and harmful as any injuries that are visible from the outside, Blumenauer said. Sometimes even more so because of the devastating effect they can have on a veterans family. We should be allowing these wounded warriors access to the medicine that will help them survive and thrive, including medical marijuana, not treating them like criminals and forcing them into the shadows. Its shameful.. Nearly 30 percent of veterans who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer from PTSD and ...
As part of the trial, three diets were made to contain either soy oil, industrial hemp oil or cannabis oil and offered to tilapia for 8 weeks. At termination, survival, growth, feed conversion and blood parameters were assessed.. In this way, they observed that the cannabis extract increases tilapia metabolism and thus, the feed conversion.. On the other hand, cannabis had no effect on blood cell counts, total plasma protein, haematocrit or lysozyme activity.. The results thus obtained suggest that cannabis does not improve immune response of tilapia or body composition but does reduce growth rate by increasing metabolic rate.. Therefore, the Lebanese scientists found that the pot pellets did not quite have the mood-altering effect they had hoped for.. The trial showed that fish fed THC (the main psycoactive cannabis ingredient)-laden edibles did not seem to be surviving any better than fish fed a control diet, which the researchers took to mean that the drugs were not helping the fish deal with ...

CBD. Since its existence, the cannabis plant has always come in handy for a wide array of uses. As such, some researchers opined that the high feeling associated with that plant was termed a spiritual by the people of old and medium or gateway to communicate with their ancestors.

As the baby boomer generation who grew up with marijuana continues to age, there may be increased pressure on legislative bodies to make medical marijuana more widely available.. In most states where medical marijuana is legal, a doctors prescription is required. Patients who have received medical ...

Santander, Spain: Cannabis use is associated with sustained effects on weight and metabolism, including lower body mass index (BMI) and lower overall cholesterol levels, according to the results of a three-year longitudinal study published in The Journal of Psychopharmacology.. Spanish researchers assessed the relationship between cannabis and weight over a three-year period in a cohort of 510 subjects. Participants in the study were classified as either continuers, discontinuers, and non-users. At the studys initiation, cannabis users presented lower weight, body mass index, total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol compared to non-users, investigators reported. Differences in weight, BMI, and LDL levels remained consistent over the three-years among those subjects who continued to consume cannabis.
