Marijuana is effective in relieving nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite …
CAMBRIDGE – A new study in the journal “Neurology” welcome as conclusive evidence that marijuana is a valuable medicine. It is a sad commentary on the state of modern medicine that still we need “proof” of something that medicine has known for 5,000 years. The study from the “California” San Francisco (UCSF) shows that smoking marijuana is effective at relieving the pain of a debilitating condition known as peripheral neuropathy.
The study was conducted on patients with the HIV virus, but a similar type of pain caused by nerve damage affects people in many other diseases, including diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Neuropathic pain are known for resistance to treatment with conventional drugs to relieve pain.
As you must be conducted all the research in the US, a new study was done with marijuana provided by the government notoriously poor quality. It would probably underestimated the potential benefit. All this is good news, but it should not even be news. In these 40 years and a little more as you study the medical use of marijuana, recorded history of this medicine dates back to ancient times. In the 19th century it became a well-established western medicine whose versatility and security is undeniable. From 1840 to 1900, American and European medical journals published over 100 papers on the therapeutic use of marijuana, also known as cannabis.
Our knowledge has advanced greatly over the years. Scientists have identified over 60 unique ingredients in marijuana, called cannabinoids, and we have learned much about how they work. They have also learned that our bodies produce similar chemicals, called endocannabinoids.
The large number of accumulated personal experience that paves the way to today, and other clinical studies also strongly suggest that there are a number of other serious diseases and symptoms that marijuana used for centuries as a medicine. Although so far been few such studies, all showed what medicine already knew but largely forgotten or ignored: Marijuana is effective at relieving nausea and vomiting, spasticity, loss of appetite, certain types of pain and other debilitating symptoms. And it’s completely safe, safer than most medicines prescribed every day.
Marijuana is very popular in the US, where 57 percent of residents support the legalization, which is 25 percent more than in 2006, according to results of a study of “Pew Research Center”
Medical marijuana is already legal in 25 states and Washington.
The United States is among the countries with the highest consumption of drugs in the world, with the possible legalization of marijuana will end the decades-long “war on drugs”, mainly directed towards South America.
More than 20 states have legalized the use of medical marijuana for various states and 7 were still looking for it. Given the growing popularity, now is the time to critically evaluate its effectiveness in the clinical environment. Exactly what do researchers from the University of Bristol.
Denver is the first US city where the permitted use of marijuana restourants bars and other public places, such as art galleries and studios for yoga.
Customers have the right to smoke dope and facilities will need to obtain the consent of neighbors.
Denver residents approved a referendum measure.
It needed a week to publish the results that were very close and supporters of the campaign to declare victory, according to US media.
The new rule takes effect immediately. Customers will still have the right to smoke grass facilities but probably in special places with limited access.
And marijuana will have to carry yourself as restaurants and bars will not be able to simultaneously selling food and drinks and a light dope from another shitting.
