Oxford University To drop 10 Milli into Ganja Studies

in World by

Oxford University is jumping on the Ganja train too. This month the historic UK university announced its intent to engage in new studies into the medical use of cannabis for treating conditions like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and arthritis as well as for dealing with nerve pain.

It follows calls from some MPs for a law to allow medical use of cannabis, with polls suggesting  58 per cent of people would back such a move. source:telegraph.co.uk

Why Does Cannabis Work for Epilepsy and Seizures?

source:medicaljane.com

Cannabis’ chemical constituent of CBD (cannabidiol) not THC is the star of this game. FDA approved clinical trials are becoming more and more common as more states and countries open-up to the economic and medicinal value of the plant. Epidiolex, a nearly pure CBD preparation (98%+) is a prime example. Its release is an astounding leap forward for cannabis and medicine.

A pure CBD formula was the safest way to begin trials on epilepsy patients because of its lack of psychoactivity. The trouble with developing a single pure CBD formula is that epilepsy has never been a one-size fits all disorder. Of the 200,000 children living with treatment-resistant epilepsy, only a fraction has access to clinical trials investigating CBD. This leaves most parents and patients to acquire their own CBD-rich cannabis, which always contains some percentage of THC. … Early results from clinical studies on GW’s Epidiolex clearly show a beneficial effect of CBD on some types of seizures, but more research is needed to fully understand whether a combination THC/CBD product can reduce the seizure burden in those patients who don’t respond to CBD alone. source

The remarkable attribute of weed stems from the fact that the human body actually produces its own “endogenous” cannabinoids (chemicals otherwise unique to the cannabis plant).  These cannabinoids—whether formed in your brain or inhaled via a nice fat joint, pipe, vaporizer etc—fit neatly into a series of receptors located throughout the human body. Their greatest concentration occurs in the hippocampus (which regulates memory), the cerebral cortex (cognition), the cerebellum (motor coordination), the basal ganglia (movement), the hypothalamus (appetite), and the amygdala (emotions). Cannabinoid receptors are similarly found in every species of animals on earth. Vice goes in on this here

It’s obvious that the more scientific study that goes into the cannabis industry the more the consumer and pharmaceutical companies will benefit hence the 11 million pound Oxford study. Now you have a broader over-standing into the recent High Times/ Damian Marley linkup. Raspect.

Damian Junior Gong Marley, Stoney Hill and High Times

in Reggae News by
High Times also had me daydreaming of so many beautiful strains that at the time I had not yet had the chance to experience….It is now an honor to be a part of the High Times legacy that I’ve been a fan of for so many years. Damian “Junior Gong” Marley confirmed that his company has acquired 60 percent interest in Trans-High Corp. The new company will operate as High Times Holding Company.

“It’s an exciting day,” said Adam Levin, the company’s new CEO. “We have really the largest brand in cannabis, really the trusted brand, that we’ve been able to acquire at a time when obviously legalization trends are burgeoning and the industry as a whole is exploding.”

With marijuana legal in some form in 26 states and the District of Columbia, Levin and his partners believe it’s the perfect time to acquire the company with a mainstream brand name and a colorful reputation.

While many magazines have struggled in recent years, High Times says it has retained a loyal print subscriber base of more than 200,000 with millions more following it online. “We’re the Wine Aficionado of the cannabis industry,” he said. source: nbc.com
