Breaking News: New Study Confirms CBD is Effective Medicine

Please Share CBD Medical JournalNEJM Medical Study: CBD has been found effective in reducing seizures in young children with severe, drug-resistant forms of epilepsy. Over a 14 week trial, 120 patients where given either a placebo or a 20 mg does of cannabidiol (CBD). Those that received CBD during the trial, reported a 50% drop in the number of weekly seizures. The median average number of seizures dropped from 12.4 to 5.9 per week.

 

Moreover, 5% of patients saw total remission – 0 seizures!

Among those that received CBD, 5% stopped having seizures altogether. Consider this: there is currently no FDA-approved treatment for Dravet syndrome. None. And now CBD has the potential to become the first and only medicine found effective to treat a form of epilepsy so severe that it kills 1 in 5 by age 20.

Vermont Gov Veto Marijuana Legalization

Vermont NOT to be 9th state to Legalize Marijuana

 

Breaking News


Update: Gov. Phil Scott Vetoes marijuana legalization!

In a highly anticipated press conference in Montpelier, Vt., Gov. Phil Scott announces he will veto the legislation that would have made Vermont the 9th state to legalize marijuana!

 

The House only passed the measure by 13 votes two weeks ago. Given the tight margin, it is unlikely that Vermont lawmakers will muster the support to override the governor’s veto.

Vermont Legislature Legalizes Marijuana  | Will Governor Veto?

Last week, Vermont legislators approved legislation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. If not vetoed (Gov does not need to sign law), Vermont will become the ninth state to legalize marijuana and the first to legalize via legislation as opposed to the ballot box.

The measure is set to take effect in July 2018 and would allow adults (21+) to purchase and possess marijuana. Although Gov. Phil Scott can still veto this measure, he has indicated that he is not opposed to the legislation. The governors’ principle concern has been in regards to public safety on the states roads and highways.

Governor Scot has until tomorrow, May 24th – Wednesday to veto the measure, or it will become law.

Five Low-THC Marijuana Strains

Five Top Low-THC Marijuana Strains

What do the elderly, sick children, military veterans, professional athletes and possibly even mom and dad, all have in common?

They are all part of a growing number of Americans who look to cannabidiol (CBD) from marijuana and hemp as an important daily nutrient that they believe can keep them healthier, stronger and better protected and able to take on what life throws at them.

Be sure to check our companion article (Five Top High-CBD Marijuana Strains), for background on CBD, THC and the potential medical benefits they offer. You will also find great advice on which high-CBD marijuana strains you might want to try for back pain, anxiety, or even to strengthen your bones.

Medical Marijuana in Two Minutes, by Dr Sanjay Gupta

For the elderly, low-THC marijuana can be a great way to scale back the number and/or potency of the prescriptions they take on a regular basis. A recent study published by Health Affairs, authors Bradford and Bradford suggest that the U.S. could save several billion dollars annually if marijuana where legalized nationwide.

 

The notion is rooted in the fact that medical marijuana availability is strongly correlated with a significant decline in the overall number of prescriptions filled in a particular community. The authors found that a 2% drop in medicaid prescription expenses could be achieved by simply legalizing medical marijuana across the nation.

 

A 2% drop in prescription costs translates into big savings for state and federal government, and underscores the powerfully positive impact marijuana can have on society. For more details on how this is possible, check out this article I wrote on the subject for the CBD Business Blog in April (READ: Federal Legalization of Medical Marijuana Could Save Government $3.8 Billion).

Five Top High-CBD Marijuana Strains

Let me introduce you to my little friends…

 

Marijuana contains two dominant cannabinoids,
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is known to produce the ‘high’ associated with consuming marijuana, along with providing several medical benefits such as pain control, relief from severe nausea, and powerful appetite stimulation. It’s also being studied for use in insomnia, glaucoma and as a potential asthma treatment.

CBD, on the other hand, is considered to be non-psychoactive (it won’t get you high) and has few known side-effects. CBD too has many known medical benefits, including neuropathic pain control, as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-epileptic, and it has significant neuroprotective qualities. CBD is even being investigated as a possibly bone strengthener.

CBD is also known to counteract ‘THC-induced’ anxiety, anxiety some users experience when consuming high-THC marijuana.

A high-CBD marijuana strain is a cannabidiol rich variety of cannabis that may or may not contain high levels of THC. And not every harvest of a particular strain will consistently produce identical CBD-rich phytochemical profiles. CBD and THC levels are strongly influenced by the environment within which they are grown. Subtle changes can produce dramatic changes to a plant’s phytochemistry.

Marijuana for Pets

Is Your Pet on Pot? | Maybe it should be.

Dog Medical Marijuana CBD
Medical Marijuana | Hemp CBD for Dogs?

“Max is a great dog. I wouldn’t trade him for the world. The poor guy has got aches and pains that make it tough for him to get up and move around. I just hate to see him in any pain…
I’ve tried prescription medications, but all they seem to do is make him sleep all day.

Help, what can I do?

Many dogs and cats suffer from nervousness, joint pain, stiffness, and poor appetite – especially as they get older. Your veterinarian does have medications that Fido and Buttons can try. Americans spend billions of dollars each year on veterinarian services for their ailing pets. Unfortunately, all too often these medications are costly, prove ineffectual and come with a host of unpleasant side-effects.

 

Pet lovers are looking to natural remedies and nutritional supplements as an alternative to harsh pharmaceuticals. For chronic pet problems like pain, joint inflammation and poor appetite, marijuana seems like a natural alternative. Using marijuana as a medicine is nothing new for conditions like these. The Cannabis plant, derived originally from Central Asia, has been widely used for a variety of medicinal purposes for many, many thousands of years. However, things get a bit more prickly when it comes to treating your pet, responsibly, with marijuana.

 

Cannabis contains a cornucopia of powerful, biologically active phytochemicals, including cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, and THCV (and others), as well as potent terpenes and flavonoids. Perhaps, that’s a little much to throw at your little Puddles, just because he tinkles when he gets stressed?

So, Should Mr. Bentley try Pot or not?
