The Medical Minute: How Does Cannabis Impact the Progression of ALS?

Based on some exciting new anecdotal evidence, the use of cannabis oil to treat ALS may actually prolong the life of the patient in addition to relieving many of the disease’s devastating day-to-day symptoms. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the baseball legend, is a debilitating disorder that affects an estimated 30,000 people in the United States at any given time. You might remember ALS from that craze last summer when everyone decided to dump ice on their heads to raise awareness for the disease and to raise money for ALS research. Even Leaflyhopped on…

Can Cannabinoids Positively Impact Your Body’s Orthopedic and Musculoskeletal Health?

Musculoskeletal symptoms and orthopedic conditions are the second-most common reason for physician visits in the United States at a staggering annual cost of close to $1 trillion. Finding safe, cost-effective therapeutic options is quickly becoming a top priority for those concerned about health and productivity, from practitioners and patients to government institutions. Cannabinoid compounds and the endocannabinoid system (ECS) have been making waves for optimizing health and restoring balance related to mood, anxiety, sleep, pain management, neuroprotection, and even metabolic health. However, there is emerging science paving the way for the application of cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) in the world of orthopedic…

Do Cannabinoid-Mimicking Compounds Affect the Endocannabinoid System As Well As Cannabis?

When reading up on cannabinoids, you may have come across some resources insinuating that some non-cannabis compounds work as well as the cannabinoids they emulate. Not so fast, friend!

US House Renews Protection For Medical Marijuana Businesses In DOJ Budget

For the second year in a row, and with 23 more votes in support than last year, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to protect state-legal medical marijuana businesses, caregivers, and patients from federal interference and prosecution. With 242 Members of Congress, including more than 65 Republicans, voting in support of an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill offered by Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Sam Farr (D-CA), the House once again forbade the use of federal funds to raid, harass, or otherwise interfere with medical cannabis patients or providers in states where medical marijuana is…

Delaware House Of Reps Approves Bill To Remove Criminal Penalties For Marijuana Possession

The Delaware House of Representatives approved a bill 24-14 on Tuesday that would remove criminal penalties and potential jail time for possession of a small amount of marijuana and replace them with a civil fine similar to a traffic ticket. The bill, which was amended on the floor to apply only to adults, will now be sent to the Senate. HB 39, introduced by Rep. Helene Keeley (D-Wilmington South), would make possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by an adult a civil violation punishable by a $100 fine with no possibility of jail. Under current Delaware law, possession…

Which Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Will Be Forced To Close In Seattle?

The City of Seattle is planning on shutting down quite a few medical marijuana dispensaries. The plan comes after the passage of Senate Bill 5052, which makes drastic changes to the medical marijuana program in Washington. Below is a brief explanation of the plan, via an earlier article that I syndicated from The Joint Blog: Under this proposal – which is designed in response to the passage of Senate Bill 5052– the first tier would include those distributing medical cannabis to patients under 21 (which is now illegal), and those with a business license obtained after January 1st, 2013. The…

The Medical Minute: Women Are Using Cannabis a Little More, but Drinking a Lot More

Want to hear an alarming statistic? Between 2005 and 2012, binge drinking rates among women climbed 17.5%. That’s the estimate University of Washington researchers arrived at after reviewing a decade’s worth of data. Compare that to the 4.9% growth in men’s binge drinking and you can see that we have a problem here, ladies. As you might imagine, the number of women who binge on cannabis instead is much less staggering. Daily marijuana use among both sexes increased just 2% in that same 2005-2012 timeframe, and considering women are about 50% less likely to consume cannabis than men, we can assume that females make…

Maine Could Legalize Children’s Use of Medical Marijuana in Schools

A remarkable breakthrough for medical marijuana patient rights just passed a hurdle in Maine, a state with one of the most progressive medical marijuana programs in the country. Their latest move comes in the form of an unprecedented bill that has not been introduced in any other state yet. Legislative Document 557 is a bill to allow children to take prescribed medical marijuana on school grounds if a parent or guardian comes to the school to administer the medication. This approach will allow children to attend school who otherwise might be too ill. It also removes liability from school nurses and…

AAA Releases Another Flawed Study About Cannabis Use and Driving

A new study just put out by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has once again proven that Americans are misinformed, and therefore easily confused, when it comes to cannabis use and driving a car. As cannabis reform sweeps the nation, so too does a new round of the same stale talking points about the supposed dangers of marijuana use that have been regurgitated for decades, always muddying the waters of the debate. If the numbers revealed in the AAA study are anywhere near accurate, all it would prove is that you can probably train a monkey to hate bananas…

What Is CBN and What Are the Benefits of this Cannabinoid?

Do you remember the first time you heard about cannabidiol, or CBD? Remember how the national opinion of medical marijuana changed drastically once we gained knowledge of CBD’s non-psychoactive compounds? And who could forget how this discovery impacted the lives of children suffering from seizures and patients with chronic pain and inflammation? What you may not know is there are many other medicinal compounds like CBD unique to cannabis that we’re only just now getting acquainted with, and cannabinol, or CBN, is one such compound. Allow us to introduce you to yet another one of marijuana’s therapeutic offerings! What Are CBN’s Effects and…
