Using Marijuana for Parkinson’s Disease (Science Explained)

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder related to age, just after Alzheimer’s disease.

The stats are alarming — between 7 and 10 million people around the world live with this disease.

In fact, every year, about 6,600 people in Canada are diagnosed with the PD, meaning that it affects one in every 500 Canadians.

PD is a degenerative disease and usually gets worse over time. There’s still little known about its exact cause, and unfortunately, medicine does not have a definite cure for it right now.

However, it seems that marijuana and Parkinson’s share a connection we were not initially aware of, until just recently.

The synergy of cannabinoids and PD caught the eye of scientists and academic research, proving once again that there’s a reason why cannabis is so powerful:

Cannabis is useful in relieving Parkinson’s symptoms because cannabinoids modulate CB receptors (which improve motor and nonmotor symptoms) and protect dopaminergic neurons (which provides neuroprotection and a dopamine boost).

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

What is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is …

Vermont legalizes cannabis possession but not sales with historic legislation

Come July 2018, cannabis will be legal in Vermont. The Green Mountain State made history on January 22 as the first state to legalize cannabis through legislation- all other states that have legalized cannabis so far have gone through a ballot initiative, only legalizing cannabis after the majority of the population showed support for it […]

Ontario landlords want to ban smoking cannabis on their property

The situation for cannabis enthusiasts in Ontario is getting more drastic by the day, as smoking laws seem to be turning on the users themselves. Landlords in Ontario are now pushing for a right to ban smoking cannabis on their property, despite existing tenant agreements and laws.

Legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada brought on many challenges, and one of those challenges for people of Ontario this summer will be the fight against their own landlords for the right to smoke in the homes they rent.

Landlords all across Ontario are now demanding their right to be able to immediately ban the use of cannabis in rental properties before it gets legalized this summer.

The main argument of the landlords is that they should be allowed to change tenants’ existing leases in order to stop them from consuming cannabis in the units they rent.

John Dickie, president of the Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations, said that in some cases, until an existing lease runs out, landlords would be unable to regulate marijuana use in their properties.

“The province is not

What’s Inside Your Weed Cartridge?

The post What’s Inside Your Weed Cartridge? appeared first on High Times.

Due to convenience, the weed cartridge has become one of the most popular methods of consuming cannabis. Cartridges are more discreet and easier to use than actual cannabis flowers. They don’t smell as much and there’s no need for packing, grinding or carrying a pipe. You just need a 510-thread battery and the pre-filled cartridge attached. Then depending on your battery, you either hold down a button or inhale through the mouthpiece to activate heating. This method of consumption is much more friendly to novices. It is even appealing to more seasoned cannabis consumers looking for something simple on the go.

Prefilled cartridges are one of the fastest growing segments of cannabis products. In fact, for the first time in history, the number of sold “ready-to-use” products has surpassed flowers. Due to their popularity, tons of companies are pumping out their own weed cartridge. Every company has their own formula for what to put in them. Some contain flavoring, additives and cutting agents while others claim to …

Tips to Getting the Right CBD Oil Dosage

CBD Oil

One of the biggest concerns with medical marijuana is getting the correct dosage of healing cannabinoids. In most oils or dried flowers, it is almost impossible to determine the amount of active ingredients in each dose. Fortunately, there is a better, more precise alternative: CBD oil.

 

Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. Over the past few years, medical researchers have uncovered a wealth of potential benefits of CBD. One major breakthrough revolves around using CBD as a treatment for prescription drug resistant epilepsy.

 

Recent clinical trials of high dose CBD products have found that treatment successfully reduced epileptic seizures in almost half of those who were treated. The strong anti-inflammatory components of CBD also show tremendous promise as a therapeutic tool. Inflammation is actually one of the leading causes of pain and contributes to a large variety of ailments.

 

Inflammation is thought to be the reason behind conditions such as arthritis and depression. The results of these studies sound great so far, but how do you gain access to …

Ontario might have Amsterdam-type cannabis smoking lounges

As the provincial government keeps working on a system for both distribution and sales, the people of Ontario are presented with the opportunity to voice their thoughts on cannabis lounges.

Most provinces have not yet signed a supply agreement for their recreational cannabis markets, including the 4 biggest by population, Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Alberta.

Seeing how the legalization date is creeping up, the question of where will consumption of cannabis in Ontario be allowed will be answered by the public through an online survey.

Residents of Ontario will have the opportunity to weigh in on the idea until March 5.

Since Ontario’s government has decided to completely monopolize the distribution and sales of recreational marijuana, we can only assume that Ontarians will have several creative ideas which could shake up the system.

Call it little Amsterdam

The provincial government of Ontario has sent out a feedback request to the public which is centered around many big regulatory changes, one of which is the question of establishing “licensed and …

Many Benefits of a Marijuana Beer

Marijuana is often compared to alcohol, a substance which is legal almost everywhere. In comparison, Marijuana does not enjoy the same widespread legality that allows it to be sold or consumed. However, according to scientific research, marijuana is actually the less dangerous drug of the two. Alcohol is associated with a myriad of health and social ills. Regular consumption of alcohol could lead to liver disease, result in a serious DUI charge, or wreck normal cognitive functioning.

A Better Beer Future

However, the founder of Province Brands, Dooma Wendschuh believes marijuana could replace alcohol for the benefit of society. This company, Province Brands, is currently in the process of inventing a marijuana beer. It is not marijuana-infused beer, mind you, but an actual beer brewed using marijuana. The difference is that marijuana beer contains zero alcohol.
Mr. Wendschuh believes that a cannabis beer could have far-reaching consequences beyond selling within a niche market. The benefits could be seriously life-changing for many people. Here is a glimpse into some of the benefits marijuana beer could provide over regular grain beer:
