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
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.... ...
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 ...
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.

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 ...

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).

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 ...

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.

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.

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), ...

(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.

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 ...

San Diego, CA: A history of cannabis use among people living with HIV is associated with a lower likelihood of neurocognitive decline, according to data published in the Journal of Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego assessed the association between cannabis use, neurocognitive impairment, and verbal and learning performance in patients with HIV and non-using controls. Investigators reported that HIV patients who used cannabis were significantly less likely to experience neurocognitive impairment as compared to those patients who had no history of marijuana exposure..

Full text of the study, Cannabis exposure is associated with a lower likelihood of neurocognitive ...
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, ...
