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 3.4.11.1] 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)

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
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
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 ...

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..

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 ...

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 ...

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.
Ever wonder what the top 3 reasons women consume cannabis were? Luckily, a cannabis lifestyle brand has the answers you want.. A recent survey reveals the top 3 reasons women consume cannabis. This in-depth study of women and cannabis use comes from the female-focused cannabis lifestyle brand Van der Pop. Their goal was to learn more about the demographic they aspire to serve to the highest standard. Heres what else the survey found.. The Survey. While medical marijuana programs, and to a lesser extent legalized recreational weed, are spreading throughout the United States, our neighbors to the north gear up for a nation-wide lift on cannabis prohibition. It seems that both countries are moving toward a happier, greener future. But we cant make any meaningful changes without data!. The Seattle-based cannabis lifestyle brand, Van der Pop, primarily serves female clientele. To better understand the needs and concerns of their client base, they conducted a survey. The survey attracted a grand ...
It is a fact: Cannabis is one of the most popular drugs in the world. Some research shows that cannabis is actually the most commonly used drug in the United States. A 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows that there are 22.2 million past-month users among the United States populous. Simply put: that is a lot of people using cannabis. And with legalization happening in an ever-increasing number of states, that number will very likely continue to increase.
Hempy CBD Oil © 2020 - - The sale, production and distribution of CBD oils/products derived from imported raw material industrial hemp is not in violation of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). CBD, and even THC, when in industrial hemp oil, are legal. The importation of industrial hemp is lawful, as exempt parts of the "marijuana" plant such as industrial hemp fiber, stalk, seed and oils can be lawfully imported into the United States and these portions of an industrial hemp plant may enter into United States commerce. The DEA cannot regulate naturally-occurring CBD not contained within or derived from "marijuana," i.e., non-psychoactive hemp products, because non-psychoactive hemp from the stalks and fibers of industrial hemp are not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled/defined. Frontier Theme ...
fMRI study finds neural correlates to support cognitive model. Researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway have found new support for their theory that cannabis use causes a temporary cognitive breakdown in non-psychotic individuals, leading to long-term psychosis. In an fMRI study published this week in Frontiers in Psychiatry, researchers found a different brain activity pattern in schizophrenia patients with previous cannabis use than in schizophrenic patients without prior cannabis use.. The results reinforce the researchers model where cannabis users suffering from schizophrenia actually may have higher cognitive abilities than non-cannabis using schizophrenics. This difference may indicate that the cannabis-user group did not have the same mental propensity for psychosis.. "While brain activity for both groups was similar, there are subtle differences between schizophrenia sufferers with a history of cannabis use and those who have never used cannabis. These differences lead us to ...
Decarboxylation of cannabinoids and cannabis products is very crucial to understanding the power of cannabis as medicine. The cannabis plant only has the ability to produce cannabinoid acids, like THCA, and THC is only created by decarboxylation outside the plant. This decarboxylation is usually done by fire when smoking, or by baking in edibles. Most cannabinoids lose approximately 87.7 percent of their mass upon decarboxylation. This means that if you had 100 grams of crystalline isolate of a cannabinoid acid, such as THCA, after decarboxylation you would have 87.7 grams left of THC.. This is important for people decarboxylating their cannabinoids themselves, such as producers of cannabis infused edible products and hash oil producer that wish to sell decarboxylated oil. This is also important for advertisers of raw cannabis products such as cured cannabis flower, who must either report the value of the cannabinoid acid directly observed by the testing lab, use the theoretical conversion, or ...
For many of our parents, cannabis has been repeatedly described as a "gateway drug." Oftentimes, theyre convinced cannabis is a dangerous substance, reserved for drug addicts and hooligans. And, really, it is not their fault. For generations, cannabis has been portrayed in a negative (and false) light. Many people have been indoctrinated into believing that cannabis is unsafe. This has been reflected in the prohibition of cannabis, as well as its current Schedule 1 federal status.. Yet, as many of us now understand - after scientific studies and countless experiences - cannabis may be utilized in a positive and beneficial way. It has helped children manage severe seizures. It has given countless individuals their life back after coping with chronic pain for years. It is prescribed by physicians for cancer, arthritis, nausea and other serious conditions. For many of us, cannabis is as normal as it is for some people to use other medications. Yet, openly talking about our cannabis use, ...
Published February 29 2016. Over the years I have had a few people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions ask me if medical cannabis, also known as medical marijuana, can benefit their health. In the past I hadnt done much research on cannabis, but with the questions coming in more frequently I figured it was a good time to do some research and write an article on this topic. In addition to discussing whether cannabis can benefit people with thyroid conditions, Ill also discuss some of the other more common health conditions that may benefit from cannabis.. There are over 480 natural components found within the Cannabis sativa plant, and 66 of these have been classified as being "cannabinoids" (1). Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is the cannabinoid that is primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis (1). As for the mechanism of action of cannabis, this relates to the cannabinoid receptor system, which consists of CB receptors CB1 and CB2 (2). CB1 receptors are present ...
ABSTRACT: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of marijuana, is now regarded as a promising medicine because this cannabinoid has been shown to exert a variety of therapeutic activities. It has been demonstrated that THC is generated from the acidic precursor, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) by nonenzymatic decarboxylation, and that THCA is biosynthesized by THCA synthase, which catalyzes a unique biosynthetic reaction, the stereospecific oxidative cyclization of the geranyl group of the substrate cannabigerolic acid. Molecular characterization of THCA synthase has revealed its structural characteristics and reaction mechanism. THCA synthase is the first cannabinoid synthase to be studied and is potentially attractive target for various biotechnological applications as it produces the direct precursor of THC. This review describes the research history of this enzyme, i.e., purification, molecular cloning, biochemical characterization, and possible biotechnological ...
advice.. The bottom line is we press our hemp cbd oil from Certified Industrial hemp? the THC is all below03% thc so that why we legally have to call it Hemp CBD oil. ( again the HIA is saying e=we cant use the word hemp in describing our oil I think they are overstepping their hemp oil with no thc grounds According to the law as long as you are making your oil from certified industrial hemp 0.3% THC it is considered legal industrial hemp We have a proprietary process and use the soft green stalk and some seed in the pressing of the oil. The process has been developed over the past 4years and is high sought after. We have spent several million dollars developing this method during harvest.. For THC the cycle would look something like this. CBGA (Cannabigerol) converts into THCA in the plant while it is growing and is the precursor to Hemp Oil Healing Effects Psoriasis most cannabinoids produced in Cannabis including CBDA. THCA in turn converts into THC upon decarboxylation.. I am repeating this ...
What is THC?. Youve probably heard about this acronym and are wanting to know more about it.. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of daggas psychological effects.. Is THC only used for recreational purposes? Is this why people smoke dagga for these effects?. Or does THC also offer medicinal benefits for people who are using cannabis and/or cannabis oil in South Africa?. The first step to understanding THC is to understand cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that interact with receptors in the brain and body to create various effects. There exist dozens, and potentially more than 100, cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, but THC is most widely known among these due to its abundance and psychoactive attributes.. The isolation of THC came from an Israeli chemist by the name of Raphael Mechoulam. In 1964, Mechoulam isolated and synthesized THC from Lebanese hashish, marking the beginning of cannabis research that would lead to ...
By now most of you following this blog are well informed that in the US we have 22 states with a medical cannabis program two of which have adopted recreational cannabis as well. What most of you may not realize is that 11 of the 22 (50%) of all cannabis legalization has occurred since 2008. In six years we have seen a dramatic improvement in momentum in the overturning of cannabis prohibition and the future looks bright. Some of the biggest issues cannabis has faced in its newly found liberation is a lack of cooperation from important channels in the industry. One of those has been the banking industry. Due to the Federal Government keeping cannabis on a schedule 1 controlled substance designation rendering it illegal banks have not been cooperative in most cases in allowing bank accounts, merchant service accounts, and financing for small business. The reason being is these banks are all backed by the Federal Reserve and due to the Federal illegalities it makes it very sticky for banks to be ...
Hemp juice made from industrial hemp is a drug-free, non-psychoactive juice pressed with pressure from the Cannabis sativa plant. The juice is obtained through a large-scale industrial cold-pressing procedure using the upper parts of the hemp plant as well as the leaves. This procedure clearly distinguishes hemp juice from other hemp products such as hemp oil, hemp sprouts or hemp milk, which are solely obtained through the seeds of the hemp plant as opposed to the green hemp leaves used for the juice. The hemp juice production therefore makes use of a valuable part of the industrial hemp plant which has previously been neglected and not been used but instead been left on the fields to decompose. In particular, hemp juice offers a base for a variety of drug-free products in the areas of nutrition, medicine, cosmetics, and relaxing beverages. Moreover, its full-bodied umami flavor offers the ability to enhance dishes and drinks in their specific flavor, especially sweet or savory and harmonizes ...
Although industrial hemp, medical marijuana, and recreational marijuana are all members of the cannabis family, hemp is distinguished from other cannabis species by its extremely low THC content. While medical and recreational cannabis often contain THC levels upwards of 25%, hemp varieties contain less than 1%. Hemp is also cultivated in very different ways from medical and recreational marijuana, mostly at commercial scale for industrial purposes ranging from health food to building materials.. - Read the entire article at Leafly News.. ...

Cannabis sativa is a ANNUAL growing to 2.5 m (8ft) by 0.8 m (2ft 7in). It is hardy to zone (UK) 9. It is in flower in July. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required) and are pollinated by Wind.The plant is not self-fertile. It is noted for attracting wildlife. Suitable for: light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils. Suitable pH: acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils and can grow in very acid and very alkaline soils. It cannot grow in the shade. It prefers moist soil.
We anticipate that the cannabis genome and transcriptome sequences will be invaluable for understanding the unique biological properties and considerable phenotypic variation in the genus Cannabis. These genomic resources are applicable to the molecular analysis of both marijuana and hemp, as we sequenced a marijuana strain (PK) and two hemp cultivars (Finola and USO-31) grown in Canada and elsewhere. The high repeat content of plant genomes, coupled with the relatively high level of sequence variation in cannabis [47-49], complicates the assembly of the full genome into the anticipated nine autosomes and two sex chromosomes. We will continue to explore approaches that might facilitate assembly of the full genome sequence, including anchoring the genome using molecular markers or FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) [50]. A more complete assembly might provide the sequences of the × and Y chromosomes and help shed light on the mechanism of sex determination in cannabis. Nonetheless, ...

By Arjun Walia. The health benefits of Cannabis are vast, with multiple medical and scientific studies that confirm them. On the other hand, arguments against the use of marijuana is usually published in Psychiatric journals, which show no scientific evidence that Cannabis is harmful to human health. All psychological evaluations from the intake of cannabis are largely based on assumptions, suggestions and observations (1). When we look at the actual science behind Cannabis, the health benefits can be overwhelming. So what does one who opposes the use of cannabis base their belief on? Nothing, not scientific evidence anyways. The negative stigmatism attached to marijuana is due to its supposed psychotropic effects, yet again, there is no scientific evidence to show that marijuana has any psychotropic effects. Nonetheless, cannabis has recently been the focus of medical research and considered as a potential therapeutic treatment and cure for cancer.. Cannabis is a great example of how the human ...
Photo via Samantha Cohen. As access to medical marijuana spreads throughout the country, scientists are discovering more and more medicinal uses for the once-demonized plant. A new study recently accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed Liver International journal may have found yet another potential benefit of cannabis. Researchers investigating the outcome of chronic alcohol and cannabis use on the liver made the surprising discovery that alcoholics who used cannabis daily had a lower risk of developing progressive stages of liver disease than those who didnt.. The research team analyzed hospital discharge records from the 2014 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project to study the prevalence of progressive liver disease in adults with a past or current history of alcohol abuse. After identifying more than 300,000 individuals who met their criteria, the researchers classified the subjects into three groups: non-cannabis users, non-dependent cannabis users, and dependent cannabis ...
Differentiating between cannabis and hemp is daunting. There are many types of cannabis sativa and each and every one of them have varying amounts of THC and CBD. They have more than .3 percent content of THC that is referred to as marijuana. Hemp is a part of cannabis sativa that less than 0.3 THC. So, cannabis sativa and hemp belong to the same group. The only difference between the two is the content of THC.. This article focuses on the types of hemp CBD oils available.. ...
Cannabinoids are a group of active compounds found in marijuana. While most cannabis users understand the relationship between THC and getting high, understanding the chemistry behind it is another thing. First and foremost, cannabis is all about cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are responsible for marijuanas effects on the body - and the reason you get high. Theyre also the reason why medical marijuana works to alleviate so many symptom-related ailments. Different types of cannabinoids, along with similar compounds found in your body, come together to get you high or to help you heal. However, the relationship between cannabinoids and our bodies is complex. Because so many people use cannabis for recreational or medicinal purposes, a little information on cannabinoids can go a long way towards making healthier choices for your brain and body. Cannabis and Cannabinoids Cannabis, also known as marijuana, contains over 500 natural compounds. Cannabinoids make up at least 85 of those compounds. While ...

These results suggest that the respiratory effects of cannabis can decrease with the use of a vaporizer. The data reveal that respiratory symptoms like cough, phlegm, and tightness in the chest increase with cigarette use and cannabis use, but are less severe among users of a vaporizer. Because a sample this large can produce statistically significant effects that might not be clinically meaningful, a focus on odds ratios could prove fruitful. The odds ratio suggests that vaporizer users are only 40% as likely to report respiratory symptoms as users who do not vaporize, even when age, sex, cigarette use, and amount of cannabis consumed are controlled. The use of cigarettes in conjunction with cannabis exacerbated symptoms, as found in previous work [6]. The interaction between vaporizer use and cannabis consumption also appeared, suggesting that a vaporizer should have more impact on respiratory symptoms in people who use more marijuana. Odds ratios suggest that these effects are relatively ...
The effects of long-term cannabis use on adolescents have not been adequately addressed. This issue is of greater relevance with an increase in the prevalence of cannabis use among adolescents and young adults in Western society. In the first study of its kind with adolescents, Schwartz et al (1989) reported the results of a small controlled pilot study of persistent short-term memory impairment in 10 cannabis-dependent adolescents (aged 14-16 years). Schwartzs clinical observations of adolescents in a drug-abuse treatment program suggested that memory deficits were a major problem, which according to the adolescents persisted for at least three to four weeks after cessation of cannabis use. His sample was middle-class, North American, matched for age, IQ and history of learning disabilities with 17 controls, eight of whom were drug abusers who had not been long-term users of cannabis, and another nine whom had never abused any drug. The cannabis users consumed approximately 18g per week, ...

To Whom it May Concern:. My name is Colleen Keahey and I am the executive director of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA), which is the oldest and largest 501(c)6 association dedicated to industrial hemp, including 596 members. Industrial hemp is defined in the American Agricultural Act of 2014, Section 7606 as "the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis." One-third of the HIA memberships identify in the cannabidiol (CBD) category as business stakeholders, CBD-dominant plant growers and CBD experts and advocates.. The following response is submitted on behalf of our association to express that the naturally occurring chemical CBD does not have the potential for abuse and is beneficial. Also, it is our review that despite the Drug Enforcement Administrations claims, hemp-derived CBD is not a controlled substance which has never been designated as such by an ...

Hemp (Cannabis sativa) was most likely the first plant cultivated by mankind for its textile use11, 20. Fast growing and not very demanding as to climate, soil quality, and nutrients, hemp was farmed all over the world until its ban in the 1930s by most Western countries due to increasing drug-related problems. The recent development of new strains of non-narcotic varieties, however, has led to the approval of experimental cultivation of industrial hemp in several countries, such as England in 1993. Germany lifted the ban on industrial hemp in the fall of 199512, 15.. As a textile fiber, hemp is similar to flax, although the fibers are generally longer and stronger. Garments can be made from hemp that are indistinguishable from linen in comfort and appearance. Research efforts are presently concerned with the technological prerequisites and equipment modernization for processing hemp fibers1, 10, 17, 18, 22 and with exploring the advantages of blending hemp with other natural or synthetic ...
There arent any "buyer beware" signs to be found at Bay Area dispensaries, but perhaps there should be. After all, despite regulatory efforts to ensure the safety of cannabis products, question marks abound when it comes to the label on a jar of flower matching the contents within.. Thats where LeafWorks hopes to make a difference. The Sebastopol botanical-identification company has recently taken on cannabis, and for CEO Eleanor Kuntz and Chief Scientific Officer Kerin Law, testing the fidelity of pot genetics was a logical next step for their business.. "We are a value system that enters at all points along the supply chain," Law explains. "We use genetic tools - DNA-based tests - to tell people what theyre buying, selling, and growing.". As Kuntz notes, errant labeling and confusion over plant origins is not a phenomenon specific to cannabis.. "I think that theres a lot of fraud that occurs across the entire herbal market," she suggests. "This is something thats ubiquitous in plants. ...
Sil existait un gouvernement qui eût intérêt à corrompre ses gouvernés, il naurait quà encourager lusage du cannabis (If there were a government had interest in corrupting its citizens, it only had to encourage the use of cannabis). This saying of the French poet Baudelaire (1821-1867) is sometimes cited in France as an answer to the question why cannabis use is punishable.. It is characteristic of the French drug policy to use this kind of frightening arguments to prevent cannabis use, as the French policy regarding drug use is first of all prohibitive. Both the official policy, the drug law of 1970, and its application -although not following strictly the law- are quite severe.. For a number of years there has been a discussion in France on the cannabis policy. This debate was initiated by the Minister of the Interior Charles Pasqua, known to be partisan of a repressive zero tolerance attitude towards cannabis use. The reason Pasqua lanced this debate was that in his eyes law was not ...

Cannabis has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal aid to treatment numerous ailments. The entire cannabis plant is beneficial. There is archeological evidence that proves that humans have used cannabis for at least 10,000 years; recorded history, for at least 5,000 years.. Cannabis has been a source of food, fuel, paper, and building materials, a textile fiber, and a folk medicine remedy for thousands of years. THC and CBD are two popular cannabinoids, and have been used medicinally for centuries. But now, science has proven that theres far more to the cannabis plant than just those two beneficial compounds. Cannabis also has terpenes. Terpenes are can be thought of like the essential oils of the cannabis plant. These oils emit scents and flavors which contribute to the plants efficacy.. Terpenes are the chemical compounds within the cannabis plant that work concurrently with cannabinoids. The terpenes are responsible for the aroma, flavor and the specific effects within each ...

Even heavy cannabis use does not cause cognitive decline in adults. However, heavy use of the drug during adolescence may result in reduced intelligence in later life. These are the main results of a long-term study conducted by an international research team in New Zealand. Participants were members of the Dunedin Study, a study of a birth cohort of 1,037 individuals followed from birth in the years 1972/1973 to age 38 years. Cannabis use was ascertained in interviews at ages 18, 21, 26, 32, and 38 years. Neuropsychological testing was conducted at age 13 years, before initiation of cannabis use, and again at age 38 years. Researchers found that those who persistently used cannabis - smoking it at least four times a week year after year through their teens, 20s and, in some cases, their 30s - suffered a decline in their IQ. The more that people smoked, the greater the loss in IQ. The effect was only noticed in those who started smoking cannabis as adolescents. It is such a special study that ...
Cannabis users are prone to oral diseases. Generally, Cannabis abusers have poorer oral health than non-users, with greater decayed, missing and filled (DMF) teeth scores, higher plaque scores and not as healthy teeth gums. An important side effect of Cannabis abuse is xerostomia (dryness of the mouth brought on by malfunctioning salivary glands). Cannabis gum and smoking causes changes in the oral epithelium, termed cannabis stomatitis. Its symptoms include irritation and superficial anaesthesia of their oral membranous tissue covering internal organs. With chronic use, this may progress to neoplasia (expansion of a tumor).. Deweiko (2009), Gold, Frost-Pineda, & Jacobs (2004) point out that of approximately four hundred understood compounds found in the cannabis plants, researchers understand of over sixty that are considered to possess carcinogenic effects on the human brain. The most well known and powerful of these would be ∆-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Much like Hazelden (2005), ...

The cannabinoid makeup of cannabis has significantly changed over the past few decades. Efforts to increase the psychotropic effects of cannabis have resulted in a THC content for current strains of the crop of 30 to 40 percent compared with only 5 percent 30 years ago. Up-regulating the THC content of the plant causes a loss of other cannabinoids the plant is producing. Some of these other cannabinoids, such as CBD, are believed to be responsible for its medical benefits.. Furthermore, no pesticides can currently legally be used during the production process. However, a recent test showed that two out of three samples of legal cannabis samples had pesticide residues above the legal limit for an edible. Once sample exceeded the limit by a factor of 1,600. Such a sample poses a consumer health risk and clearly shows the potential for illegal growing procedures or unclear product streams in the marketplace..

The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009 is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives by Ron Paul ( R - Texas ) and Barney Frank ( D - Massachusetts ) on April 2, 2009. [1] Also known as HR1866, the bill clarifies the differences between marijuana and industrial hemp as well as repeals federal laws that prohibit American farmers from cultivating industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is the non- psychoactive , low- THC , oilseed and fiber varieties ...
Hemp is a commonly used term for high-growing varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fiber, oil, and seed. Hemp is refined into products such as hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel. Other variants of the herb Cannabis sativa are widely used as a drug,…
The market for cannabis products, both recreational and medical, continues to rise, and with this growth comes the need to test these products to ensure accuracy in chemistry and safety for consumers. Testing and analyzing cannabis products is not new to the industry, but as more people consume cannabis products and more companies strive to differentiate themselves in a crowded space, there is a current need for these tests to be advanced in design and accurate (valid) in assessment.. Accurate test results on cannabis products are important for a variety of reasons. A valid analysis of cannabis flower or extracts can reveal potency of different cannabinoid percentages, check for any impurities due to pesticides or other chemical contaminants, and reveal if a test batch has any evidence of mold or similar biological toxins. These test results can ensure a harvest of flower or batch of extract is safe for consumption while also revealing cannabinoid and terpene profiles that can impact how the ...

Washington, DC - The federal government continues to oppose allowing licensed farmers the opportunity to cultivate industrial hemp for fiber and other agricultural purposes, according to statements posted this week by Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske on the whitehouse.gov website.. Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa that contains only minute (typically less than .03 percent) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana. According to a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report, "The United States is the only developed nation in which industrial hemp is not an established crop." Farmers in Canada and the European Union grow hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products, including food..

As interest in the medical cannabis industry grows, science is dissecting the cannabis plant even further to understand just how the complicated plant can heal humans, and animals. There is archeological evidence that proves that humans have used cannabis for at least 10,000 years; recorded history, for at least 5,000 years. While the research catches up to the legacy of the cannabis plant, science is confirming what people have known and understood for centuries. Cannabis is a sophisticated plant, one that defends itself against pests, produces multiple chemical compounds and can heal a variety of ailments.. Cannabis has been a source of food, fuel, paper, and building materials, a textile fiber, and a folk medicine remedy for thousands of years. THC and CBD are two popular cannabinoids, and have been used medicinally for centuries. But now, science has proven that theres far more to the cannabis plant than just those two beneficial compounds. Cannabis also has terpenes. Terpenes can be ...
Cannabis use is becoming very popular for its increasing benefits in aiding various problems like leukemia, anxiety, depression, appetite and so on.. The medical use of marijuana has been legalized in various areas to help people cope up with their day to day stress.. But, this becomes complicated in the case of dogs.. The use of medical cannabis in dogs is unclear, and thus we need to dig deeper to understand it.. Veterinarians are not allowed to prescribe marijuana, even though they believe that CBD can help cure many ailments in dogs like anxiety, lack of appetite and so on.. However, the law does not give the freedom for the veterinarians to allow them to make use of cannabis.. Dr. Rob Silers book: Medical Marijuana & Your Pet: The Definitive Guide, has been trying to educate people on how using cannabis benefits, as well as the restrictions and risks associated with it..

Marijuana has been around for a long time. Its source, the hemp plant (cannabis sativa) is cultivated for psychoactive properties more than 2,000 years. Although cannabis contains at least 400 different chemicals, the main mind-altering ingredient THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). The amount of THC in marijuana determines the drug strength, and THC levels are affected by many factors, including plant species, weather, soil, and harvest time. Sophisticated cannabis cultivation of today produces high levels of THC and marijuana that is far more potent than pot of the past. THC content of marijuana, which averaged less than 1 percent in 1974, rose to an average of 4 percent until 1994. For a very popular form of marijuana called Sinsemilla (from the Spanish "without seeds"), only the buds and flowering tops of female plants, THC content averages 7.5 percent and ranges as high as 24 percent. ...
Given that psychoactive compounds within cannabis can cause or increase psychotic experiences secondary to intoxication effects, 2,3 and independently of such effects, 5 it is very plausible that cannabis might lead to increased positive symptoms and subsequently relapse or rehospitalisation in people with psychosis. Indeed, there is a widespread belief among psychiatrists that such a detrimental effect does exist. We were surprised how little empirical evidence is currently available to support this view. Our assessment of methodological quality suggests that although insufficient attention was paid to addressing overestimation of causal effects, low statistical power to observe associations was also likely to have been present in many of the studies.. Despite the clinical consensus and the plausibility of harmful effects, we believe it is important to establish whether cannabis is harmful, and if so, what the size of any harmful effect is. Trials of interventions for reducing cannabis use in ...
A cotton gin in northern NSW is being trialled as an industrial hemp processing mill. Hemp producer Phil Warner is trialling several varieties of hemp at various locations in a bid to identify which varieties do best, under what conditions, and where the best growing areas are.
Ive learned from experience that often, in the cannabis industry, consumers arent getting the best possible experience from the cannabis products they are purchasing.. Now, Im not saying that current patients are having bad experiences, quite the contrary. This is the best time in the history of our country to start or continue using cannabis. The access to and quality of medicine available has never been better. And though I and many others would argue that all cannabis use is medicinal, its increased availability means positive steps forward for both medical and "recreational" use. The issue with new products is that the average user hasnt been given enough information to make an informed decision on what is best for their specific needs.. When I talk to budtenders or dispensary managers about what drives most purchases, I get the same answer "consumers want the highest THC%". This makes sense. Many cannabis users and non-users alike have heard of THC and CBD. These two plant components ...
There are quite a few very large western states that have been draining the Ogallala Aquifer dry over the past century with wheat farming. Before mass-mono-crop agriculture took over the west Native Americans relied on this aquifer for thousands of years without putting it at any risk of drying up. Hemp crops dont burden the farmer with the same irrigation (or pesticide/herbacide) needs as wheat fields. Hemp can be grown practically anywhere without irrigation or chemical help. While wheat bread is an important staple food on practically everyones kitchen table, hemp bread is even better. Hempseed contains all the essential amino acids to form a complete protein. Grains such as wheat and rice need to be combined with legumes in order to provide a complete protein. While hempseed is feeding the nation and the world, the whole plant could be used for superior quality paper, clothing, rope, and most importantly, fuel. Methanol and bio-deisel can both be made from hemp.. Industrial, ...

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH PAPERS. The scientists at project cbd are doing a fantastic job of compiling the research around the many benefits of CBD.. For example, a good summary of the nutritional benefits can be found in this paper :. Hemp Seed as a Nutritional Resource: An Overview. Euphytica, January 2004, Volume 140, No. 1-2, Pages 65-72(8).. Dr. J.C. Callaway, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Kuopio, Finland. Summary:. The seed of Cannabis sativa L. has been an important source of nutrition for thousands of years in Old World cultures. Non-drug varieties of Cannabis, commonly referred to as hemp, have not been studied extensively for their nutritional potential in recent years, nor has hemp seed been utilized to any great extent by the industrial processes and food markets that have developed during the 20th century. Technically a nut, hemp seed typically contains over 30% oil and about 25% protein, with considerable amounts of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Hemp seed ...
Like many who are just now beginning to navigate the complex world of cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant-medicine, you may be wondering: whats the difference between Hemp and CBD?. Well, we were pretty confused too, so we thought wed lend a helping hand.. The hemp plant is pretty miraculous. Without getting into the nitty-gritty of hemp vs cannabis, we can broadly classify hemp into two different categories that we use to do very different things. The first type of hemp is industrial hemp, which people use to make clothes, rope, paper, and even plastic.. We love industrial hemp. There are so many environmentally friendly uses of industrial hemp and we believe it can play a big role in healing our planet from the catastrophes of global warming.. (In fact, its one of our goals for 2020 to start using 100% hemp-based paper for our packaging.). The second type of hemp and our favorite is medicinal hemp or the hemp flower, which we grow to get the active ingredient CBD and other beneficial ...
Smoking tobacco puts people at an increased risk for bladder cancer, a side effect that is well known in the medical community. Doctors in California set out on an 11-year study to track cannabis and tobacco users to compare the two substances effects on bladder health. While tobacco use continued to be unhealthy on all accounts, cannabis users were 45 percent less likely to develop bladder cancer.. Doctors from the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center used the medical records and questionnaire surveys from the more than 84,000 participants in the California Mens Health Study. Their statistical analysis found that "cannabis use only was associated with a 45 percent reduction in bladder cancer incidence." 41 percent of the entire group reported using cannabis, 57 percent reported tobacco use, 27 percent reported using both and 29 percent used neither substance. After adjusting for confounding factors like age, race, ethnicity and body mass index, doctors only found that tobacco use ...

Ever since the War of Hemp and the failed D.A.R.E program, generations of Americans have been taught that the high cannabis produces is dangerous. This has resulted in a long-standing stigma among many of the people that cannabis can help the most.. This is the biggest hurdle that the cannabis industry needs to overcome. When potential cannabis patients understand that they were not given the entire truth about cannabis, society as a whole will move towards a more nuanced, science-backed appreciation for its effects.. I recall the D.A.R.E program well. More than anything else, it provoked in me a curiosity to try illicit drugs. The police officer lectured my 6th-grade class with a large, friendly display board that made the drugs look like items on a menu. It almost felt like a scavenger hunt. Now, as my generation becomes the leader in science and research, we are realizing that some of these "drugs" were put here for us to use to expand our minds, to heal the wounds of inevitable emotional and ...
Its believed that cannabis can help provide comfort to patients who havent found success with conventional treatments. Cannabinoids found in the plant have immunomodulatory effects, meaning they prevent the immune system from releasing inflammatory proteins and instead they trigger anti-inflammatory compounds.. In 2013, Israeli researchers completed a study confirming this theory. The patients chosen had severe symptoms that did not respond to standard Crohns treatments. The patients where divided into two groups, a control group and cannabis group, and studied for a total of 10 weeks. The cannabis group received 115mg of THC twice daily via smoking and the control group was treated with extracted THC.. "5 of the 11 subjects in the cannabis group achieved complete remission of Crohns disease. 10 out of 11 patients had a clinical response that included improved symptoms," the study concluded. "The cannabis patients also reported no negative side effects and had improved appetite and ...
But in the case of medical cannabis, she actually went running to the feds to help her find a way to keep the dispensaries from opening. So, how did I get my medicine?. When I was seeing the doctor doing the medical cannabis exams, they also helped you fill out the paperwork for the state. I discovered that if there was no dispensary within 25 miles, you could check a box to get the right to culti- vate. In other words, you could grow your own medicine. I wisely checked that box. I figured, hey, if I can grow culi- nary herbs, I should be able to grow cannabis. Since I did- nt know when there would be a dispensary, or even if there would be any, this was a smart choice. I was also able to get some cannabis later that day from another patient I knew who had already gotten a card, which the law allows for. The law allows sharing between registered patients. I want to stress I did everything "by the book". I waited until I had my recommendation before even trying the cannabis. I went through about ...
Cannabis use disorders are an important public health problem in the United States, but no effective pharmacotherapies are available to treat these disorders. People with schizophrenia are more likely than healthy people to abuse cannabis. Cannabis use may worsen clinical outcomes in this group, making the identification of pharmacotherapy to treat cannabis dependence in those with schizophrenia important. The investigators intend to test the combination of dronabinol, a cannabinoid agonist, and the α2-adrenergic agonist clonidine, for cannabis dependence in subjects with schizophrenia. The combination of dronabinol and clonidine may alleviate cannabis withdrawal symptoms while allowing treatment-seeking outpatients to benefit from medical management (MM) sessions when they are trying to stop using cannabis. The investigators propose to assess the relationship of dronabinol and clonidine, when added to MM, on cannabis use patterns in cannabis-dependent patients with schizophrenia.. Hypothesis: ...
Abstract: A liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method was developed for quantifying ten cannabinoids in oral fluid (OF). This method utilizes OF collected by the Quantisal device and concurrently quantifies cannabinol (CBN), cannabidiol (CBD), Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), 11-hydroxy-Δ9-THC (11-OH-THC), 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-THC (THC-COOH), 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-THC glucuronide (THC-COOH-gluc), Δ9-THC glucuronide (THC-gluc), cannabigerol (CBG), tetrahydrocannabiverin (THCV), and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid A (THCA-A). Solid phase extraction was optimized using Oasis Prime HLB 30 mg 96-well plates. Cannabinoids were separated by liquid chromatography over a BEH C18 column and detected by a Waters TQ-S micro tandem mass spectrometer. The lower limits of quantification (LLOQ) were 0.4 ng/mL for CBN, CBD, THC, 11-OH-THC, THC-gluc, and THCV; and 1.0 ng/mL for THC-COOH, THC-COOH-gluc, CBG and THCA-A. Linear ranges extended to 2000 ng/mL for THC and 200 ng/mL for all other analytes. ...
Over the last few years, several states have either adopted or expanded their medical marijuana programs. Medical marijuana is legal in Nevada, and Nevada continues to be the only state that accepts medical marijuana cards from other states.. HARTFORD - The legislative committee that reviews new state regulations before they are adopted narrowly approved an expansion of the states medical marijuana program Tuesday, adding six conditions qualifying for treatment.. In an 8-5 vote, the regulation review committee approved all but one of the seven recommended conditions: ALS, or Lou Gehrigs disease; ulcerative colitis; sickle cell disease; severe psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis; complex regional pain syndrome; and post-laminectomy syndrome with chronic radiculopathy, which is recurring back pain after surgery.. "The six new conditions will allow other people with some really serious medical conditions to have access to the medicine to help them," Jonathan A. Harris, commissioner of the state ...
According to Beyond Pesticides recent report on state pesticide use on cannabis, California was one of six states silent on pesticide use on marijuana. Until now, the only discussion of the issue came from a 2012 report from the California Research Bureau, commissioned by CA Assembly member Linda Halderman, M.D. The report indicated that because no pesticide products were registered for use on cannabis by EPA, and given that applying a pesticide for an unregistered use is illegal under federal pesticide law, the state could confiscate any medical marijuana crop treated with a pesticide. However, it was noted that this conflicts with the states Compassionate Use Act, which guarantees ill Californians access to medical marijuana. Thus it was determined that growers could simply not spray pesticides in order to avoid potential confiscation. But because the state had not formulated any laws or regulations governing pesticide use on cannabis, the issue remained in a grey area.. The State Water ...
Among those states that already have regulations for the medical use of cannabis, there is a growing trend of decreasing incidence of prescription opioid overdose deaths. Recent evidence suggest that medical marijuana, when taken together with prescription opioid analgesics, can significantly control severe chronic pain at significantly lower doses of prescription opiates because of the synergistic effect of cannabis on opioids. This results in fewer incidence of prescription opioid analgesic overdose. Unfortunately, for the remaining 27 states in the country, such benefits are not yet seen. That is why West Virginia marijuana addiction treatment centers and the other 26 states continue to see increasing numbers of marijuana addictions.. Nevertheless, with or without medical marijuana legislations, the states many marijuana addiction treatment centers still have to provide the same kind of quality service that they are known for.. Generally, marijuana addiction treatment centers are similar in ...

This time next year, an investigational drug hailed as a breakthrough in the science of cannabidiol could be prescribed to children suffering from treatment-resistant epilepsy.. The prospect of its success, however, has caused some unease in the American hemp industry.. London-based GW Pharmaceuticals plc is steering its proprietary Epidiolex oral solution through the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations approval pipeline.. Unlike other FDA-approved drugs that emulate the properties of THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, Epidiolex (eh-pih-DYE-uh-lehx) utilizes another of the plants compounds: non-psychoactive cannabidiol. GWs pharmaceutical formulation of purified CBD is targeted for treating rare, early onset seizure disorders including Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes, as well as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex and Infantile Spasms.. The company is expected to wrap up its New Drug Application to the FDA in the coming weeks; the federal agency could conduct its Good Manufacturing ...
Tourette syndrome (TS) is a complex inherited disorder of unknown aetiology, characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics. Involvement of the central cannabinoid (CB1) system is suggested because of therapeutic effects of marijuana (Cannabis sativa L.) consumption and Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (-THC) treatment in TS patients. The central cannabinoid receptor (CNR1) gene encoding the CNR1 was considered as a candidate gene for TS and systematically screened by single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis and sequencing. Compared with the published CNR1 sequence, three single base substitutions were identified: 1326T A, 1359G A, 1419 + 1G C. The change at position 1359 is a common polymorphism (1359 G/A) without allelic association with TS. 1326T A was present in only one TS patient and is a silent mutation which does not change codon 442 (valine). 1419 + 1G C affects the first nucleotide immediately following the coding sequence. It was first detected in three ...
