Buying CBD Online? You May Be Getting Ripped Off

Buying CBD Online? Cannabidiol is a major component of marijuana, and is gaining popularity for its medicinal qualities nationwide.  But a study published on Tuesday reports that people trying to treat themselves with cannabidiol products that were purchased online may not be getting what they’re paying for. The study is led by the University of Pennsylvania, which purchased 84 CBD products from 31 online companies and found that less than a third were properly labeled. About 43 percent of the products, including oils, tinctures, and vaporization liquid,  contained less cannabidiol than their labels advertised. The findings indicate that they weren’t potent enough to give their […]

Medical Marijuana Patient Registry

Medical Marijuana Patient Registry Launches in Pennsylvania

Even though registered patients will have to wait another six months before legally obtaining their medication, the final obstacle between The State of Pennsylvania and those who choose to medicate with cannabis has finally been overcome. The state’s decision comes after the successful pilot program which was begun after Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program was passed into law on April 17 of 2016. The launch of the patient registry is part of the state’s steady implementation of the 2016 law. Over the next six months, the state will review applications for registration with the new medical cannabis program. Doctors, caregivers, growers and dispensary operators now have […]

World Anti-Doping Agency Approves CBD

World Anti-Doping Agency Approves CBD

The World Anti-Doping Agency recently published their 2018 list of prohibited substances and methods–and CBD is no longer included on the list. This is a major move forward; sports have generally disallowed all forms of cannabis including the infamous case of Michael Phelps and a picture of him using a bong resulting in suspension from competition and loss of sponsorship. These new guidelines wouldn’t have helped Phelps avoid that suspension, however: THC and whole-plant marijuana are still on the list of prohibited substances provided by WADA. Previous versions of the list of prohibited substances under the cannabinoids section included “Natural, e.g. cannabis, […]

THCA

Study: THCA May Help Treat Huntington’s Disease

The compound THCA, an acidic precursor to THC which is found in cannabis, could one day be used to treat the neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory effects of Huntington’s and related diseases, according to scientists in a study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. In the study, researchers found that THCA reduced inflammation and acted as a neuroprotectant when they analyzed the effects of cannabis compounds in animals. They concluded that the compound improved motor function and prevented brain degeneration. “I think we have something here and it’s pretty exciting,” said Gaetano Morello, a co-author of the study and a cannabis researcher and naturopathic […]

THC & CBD May Decrease Viability of Melanoma Cells

THC & CBD May Decrease Viability of Melanoma Cells Says Study

rotecMelanoma is considered to be the most serious form of skin cancer: a cancerous tissue that can form as moles or from already existing moles, it is considered to be caused by overexposure to UV rays or tanning beds. This is something that has affected many and it’s not exactly easily avoidable, as humans we require some time in the sunlight for our mental and physical health. Though results were created in a laboratory petri dish and not in the complex system of a human, recent research does offer a potential solution: THC and CBD seem to discourage these cells from forming.

Endocannabinoid system

The Endocannabinoid System Part 1

This article is the first in a series on the topics of cannabis, the endocannabinoid system, and cannabinoids, by Adam Pfister. Part 1 – Your Endocannabinoid System Can you guess who possesses hair, a neocortex, three middle ear bones, and an endocannabinoid system? Every mammal on the planet, that’s who. The endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in regulating pain, inflammation, appetite, mood, memory, and stress. This system is able to down-regulate (decrease) stress-related signals that lead to chronic inflammation and certain types of pain(1). Chronic inflammation can cause all sorts of health problems, including allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and […]

In a recent survey, 42 percent of people taking CBD said that they had stopped taking traditional medications, including pain-killers and stronger prescription pain killers after successfully transitioning to CBD. This is hopeful news in an era seeing an epidemic in opioid overdoses, the addiction to which often begins with prescription opioids. “We are seeing an exponential rise in the interest of CBD products from our patient community—particularly among women,” said Dr. Perry Solomon, the chief medical officer of HelloMD “While we still have much to learn, we cannot ignore this one fact; the majority of those using CBD products today receive great […]

THC Microdosing

THC Microdosing Gaining Popularity

THC Microdosing is something one normally associates with psychedelics like LSD, but the practice has recently gained popularity with THC, with some Oregon companies starting to produce products specifically with microdosing in mind. Most people these days think of LSD when they think of microdosing, a practice that the creator of LSD,  Dr. Albert Hofmann, recommended for a variety of ailments and has been used to apparent effect to treat things like anxiety and depression. Studies are ongoing, but anecdotal evidence suggests that the practice can be beneficial without creating the psychedelic high often associated with lysergic acid diethylamide. Now the trend […]

CB1 Receptor Research

Understanding the Receptor That Makes Us High

Scientists are a little bit closer in CB1 receptor research and understanding how CB1 receptors function in conjunction with cannabinoids and endocannabinoids, with newly published research showing that the receptors are more flexible than previously thought. Our endocannabinoid system is built throughout the entire body, which can produce its own endocannabinoids which are used to regulate things like appetite, mood, memory, pain, and more. It can also interact with cannabinoids, compounds found outside the body, which are found naturally in cannabis. This is why weed has so many medicinal benefits and is the cause of the high we feel during […]
