The flavour and uniqueness of the flowers keeps you wanting more.
Mexico legalized the use of marijuana for medical and scientific needs in June but has maintained a ban on recreational use and cultivation. Mexico will legalize sales of marijuana-based medicines, foods, drinks, cosmetics and other products early next year, its health regulator said on Wednesday, bringing some forms of cannabis into legal commerce even as…
The medical marijuana program isn’t expected to be operational for another two years, but in the meantime NZ will decriminalize cannabis for patients in their last year of life.
Bermuda joins few Caribbean islands to decriminalize marijuana Bermuda has passed a bill decriminalizing the possession of cannabis after years of lobbying by advocates of the psychoactive drug which is used for both medicinal and recreational purposes. The island nation’s Misuse of Drugs [Decriminalization of Cannabis] Amendment Act 2017 removes criminal prosecution for the possession of not more…
Efficacy, Tolerability, and Safety of Cannabinoid Treatments in the Rheumatic Diseases: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
Extremely small sample sizes, short study duration, heterogeneity of rheumatic conditions and products, and absence of studies of herbal cannabis allow for only limited conclusions for the effects of cannabinoids in rheumatic conditions. Pain relief and effect on sleep may have some potential therapeutic benefit, but with considerable mild to moderate adverse events. There is currently insufficient evidence to recommend cannabinoid treatments for management of rheumatic diseases pending further study.
“There’s a big stereotype that herbalists are just weed-obsessed hippies. But in my three years of training at MASH, cannabis came up only once in a protocol for glaucoma. I’ll never forget our instructor’s response when asked about it. She called cannabis a persecuted herb.
Harvesting the biosynthetic machineries that cultivate a variety of indispensable plant natural products
Plants are a sustainable resource for valuable natural chemicals best illustrated by large-scale farming centered on specific products. Gaps in our understanding of how economically important compounds such as cannabinoids are produced are being identified using next-generation ‘omics’ to rapidly advance biochemical breakthroughs at an unprecedented rate.
The Terror and violence in Jerusalem’s eastern neighborhoods has become a routine, but it turns out that in between throwing stones and Molotov cocktails the local youth are trying to maintain the balance with a cold beer and a little something to burn…
One hypothesis suggests that tinnitus is a form of sensory epilepsy, arising partly from neuronal hyperactivity in auditory regions of the brain such as the cochlear nucleus and inferior colliculus. Although there is currently no effective drug treatment for tinnitus, anti-epileptic drugs are used in some cases as a potential treatment option.

Recently, cannabis has been suggested as a potential alternative therapy for refractory epilepsy, which affects 30% of epilepsy, both adults and children, who do not respond to current medications. There is a large unmet medical need for new antiepileptics that would not interfere with normal function in patients with refractory epilepsy and conditions associated with refractory seizures. The two chief cannabinoids are Δ-9-tetrahyrdrocannabinol, the major psychoactive component of marijuana, and cannabidiol (CBD), the major nonpsychoactive component of marijuana.
