Is cannabis the cure-all for migraines? Scientists think so
www.marajuananews.com

Cannabis May Help Rejuvenate An Aging Brain and Ward Off Dementia
www.marajuananews.com
THC has a beneficial influence on the aging brain, reversing the aging process and improving cognitive function, raising the possibility it might be useful for the treatment of dementia in the elderly 18-month-old mice given THC at 2, 12 and 18 months demonstrated cognitive skills equal to 2-month-old controls, while the placebo group suffered cognitive deterioration associated with aging Previous research has also shown low-dose THC directly impedes buildup of beta amyloid plaque in the brain (a hallmark of Alzheimer’s) and enhances mitochondrial function in the brain By Dr. Mercola Regardless of your views on the pros and cons of recreational marijuana, the body of scientific evidence about its medicinal value is getting more compelling as additional research is done. The cannabinoids in cannabis — cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — interact with your body by way of naturally-occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. In fact, scientists now believe the endocannabinoid system may represent the most widespread receptor system in your body.1 There are cannabinoid receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more, and both the therapeutic and psychoactive properties of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid activates a cannabinoid receptor. Your body actually makes its own cannabinoids, similar to those found in marijuana, albeit in much smaller quantities than you get from the plant. The fact that your body is replete with cannabinoid receptors, key to so many biological functions, is why there's such enormous medical potential for cannabis. The whole plant also contains terpenes that have medicinal properties. More often than not, medicinal marijuana is made from plants bred to have high CBD and low THC content. While THC has psychoactive activity that can make you feel "stoned," CBD has no psychoactive properties. However, recent research shows THC should not be written off completely just because it's psychoactive. It has valuable therapeutic potential in its own right. THC May Reverse Aging Process in the Brain According to recent animal research,2 THC has a beneficial influence on the aging brain.3,4 Rather than dulling or impairing cognition, THC appears to reverse the aging process and improve mental processes, raising the possibility it might be useful for the treatment of dementia in the elderly.5 To test the hypothesis, mice were given a small daily dose of THC over the course of one month at the age of 2 months, 12 months and again at 18 months of age. It is important to understand that mice typically live until 2 years old. The dose was small enough to avoid any psychoactive effects. Tests assessed the animals' learning, memory, orientation and recognition skills. Interestingly, 18-month-old mice given THC demonstrated cognitive skills equal to 2-month-old controls, while the placebo group suffered cognitive deterioration associated with normal aging.

dementia cure? – Chemical found in cannabis may REVERSE the ageing process
www.marajuananews.com
Olivia Lerche DEMENTIA is currently incurable - but scientists have revealed a chemical component of cannabis could boost memory in old mice. Experts said the finding opens up a whole new avenue of future research into the disease. How to spot if someone is suffering from dementia Results published today suggest that THC, a chemical component of cannabis, could improve the learning capabilities of rodents. Experts have said the whole new chemical system, called the endocannabinoid system could be a ‘potential target for new avenues of research which could include illnesses like dementia’. Dementia is a set of symptoms which can include memory loss, difficulty problem solving, thinking and can lead to behavioural changes such as a change in temperament or mood but it can affect people in very different ways. Low doses of THC were administered over a period of 28 days in young - two months old and mature - 12 months old and old 18 months old rodents. The researchers then tested the mice for their memory and learning skills and found that the older mice had their memory and learning abilities restored to similar levels to the younger mice. Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory They found that these changes appeared to affect the activity of certain genes in the hippocampus, an area of the brain important for memory and learning. However, there is as yet no evidence that THC would be able to work the same way in people. “This study shows that a component of cannabis, called THC, could have a beneficial effect on memory and learning in older mice,” said Dr Doug Brown, director of research at Alzheimer’s Society. “Though an interesting finding, the study does not shed light on the effect of THC on people with dementia, as it only looked at age-related memory decline in mice. “The study also does not reveal anything about the effect of cannabis on dementia, or memory problems in old age, as THC is only one of many chemicals that make up cannabis, and we don’t know what effects the other chemicals might have.“ Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Early signs of dementia This new study investigates this in old mice showing signs of age-related worsening of memory function. Dr Michael Bloomfield, clinical lecturer in Psychiatry at University College London and the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, said: “This new, well-conducted study published in the respected journal Nature Medicine investigated the effects of low doses of one of the major active ingredient in cannabis, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), on memory function and brain cells in mice. “It's been known for some time that regular high doses of THC during adolescence, a period when our brains are still developing, is potentially harmful for memory [...]

Top 5 Cannabis 420 Marijuana News Stories of the Week including Annie Dookhan on The Johno Show
www.marajuananews.com
Top 5 Cannabis News Stories of the Week including how chili peppers and weed can help your stomach to Pueblo County Colorado attempt at building a National Marijuana Museum to what happened at the Philly Smoke Session and finally to Annie Dookhan convicted of dry labbing test results. (18+) *LEGAL MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENT* In “Your Gut Needs Cannabis” News... Scientists trying to help people with irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and other stomach ailments are turning to an interesting combination of chili peppers and cannabis. They found that exposing immune cells to hot temperatures caused the cells to become highly activated. Meaning they went to work to protect the body very similar to how a fever can help immune cells work better. Surprisingly, immune cells exposed to chili pepper in a Petri dish behaved just like cells exposed to higher temperatures. To test this theory they gave mice capsaicin, which is found in chili peppers. That activated a special kind of cell that suppressed immune responses in the gut. In 1980, scientists discovered Anandamide when researchers were trying to make sense of why our body, especially the brain, has cannabinoid receptors. Scientists believe that nature didn't develop these receptors just so humans could get stoned. Anandamide is similar to the cannabinoids found in marijuana, but our body actually produces it naturally. The mice given capsaicin were shown to also have a stimulated production of anandamide, which helped heal their guts and suggests that other cannabinoids like marijuana might have a similar effect. In “Maybe social media isn’t the best place to promote that kind of thing” News... The underground party known as the "Philly Smoke Session" was busted by philadelphia police and 22 people were arrested at the event, 175 others were released without charge. The event was heavily promoted on social media as a Spring Fling. In addition to the arrests, police confiscated fifty pounds of marijuana and 100 pounds of THC-infused edibles, four handguns, and $50,000 in cash. Police say they also executed two search warrants on homes owned by the event coordinators where additional contraband was found. The following day, protesters stood outside police headquarters in support of the almost two dozen arrested. In “Her own husband called her a liar” News... The single largest dismissal of criminal convictions in U.S. history is taking place in Massachusetts as I speak. 24,000 drug convictions were tainted by a former state drug lab chemist who pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and falsifying tests. Annie Dookhan worked for Massachusetts law enforcement from 2003 until 2012. Dookhan pleaded guilty in 2013 to charges of obstruction of justice, perjury and tampering with evidence. She was sentenced to three years in prison and was paroled last year. Prosecutors said Dookhan admitted 'dry labbing,' or testing only a fraction of a batch of samples, then listing them all as positive for [...]

CBD oil helps autistic boy speak again
www.marajuananews.com
Tracey Watson At first, when Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico survived a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma, his parents, Abiel and Gladys, were overjoyed that the two years of grueling surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments had worked, and their little boy was going to be okay. But while he was in the hospital, they started noticing some behavior that disturbed them, like hand flapping and walking on his toes; worst of all, he was totally unable to speak. At the age of 3, little Kalel was diagnosed with severe autism. Abiel and Gladys gave themselves a crash course on everything related to autism, and were fortunate enough to get Kalel accepted to a special surf-therapy school in their area, where their little boy thrived. Though settled happily in his new school, Kalel was still totally unable to speak. Then the Santiago family read about the potential of CBD oil in the treatment of autism and decided to try it. The CBD oil they purchased was derived from hemp oil, which is legal in the U.S. After giving Kalel the oral CBD spray twice a day for two days, the results were nothing short of miraculous: After years of never hearing their child utter a single word, they received a call from Kalel’s teacher asking what treatment they were trying, because Kalel had suddenly spoken at school that day! At first, he was only able to say the vowels, A, E, I, O and U, but to the parents’ joy, very quickly added consonants, full words and complete sentences, even telling his mother he loved her. “He’s been connecting — like he’s awakening to seeing the world,” said Abiel. “He’s looking you in your eyes, he’s been trying to say different things and imitate what we are saying. He’s saying ‘uncle’, ‘aunt,’ the names of my two kids. It’s something amazing that I cannot explain.” Anecdotal evidence like this can be found all over the Web, with thousands of parents confirming the miraculous healing ability of CBD oil derived both from hemp and marijuana in the treatment of their children’s debilitating health conditions. (RELATED: For the latest in mental health be sure to visit Psychiatry.news) In 2013, researchers from Stanford University’s Department of Neurology conducted a survey to explore the use of CBD-enriched marijuana in the treatment of children with severe epilepsy. All the parents involved in the survey were members of a Facebook group dedicated to sharing information regarding this treatment method for their children. Nineteen of the responses met the criteria for the study: An epilepsy diagnosis and treatment using CBD-enriched cannabis. The causes of epilepsy varied: 13 of the children had Dravet syndrome, four had Doose syndrome, one had Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and the final child had idiopathic epilepsy. Over 80 percent of the parents (16 of the 19) reported a reduction in how often their children had seizures when using the CBD-enriched marijuana. Two of the children completely stopped having s [...]

DEA JUST ADMITTED TO SELLING DRUGS ON STREETS
www.marajuananews.com
Youth ‘Informants’ Forced To Help The War on Drugs, carried out by the DEA, continues unabated since its establishment in the 1970s during the Nixon administration era. For years, countless arrests have occurred, many of them for victimless crimes involving cannabis. Large sentences are dealt, some carrying hefty jail times. Only this week, Canada unveiled their legislation to fully legalize cannabis, acknowledging the War on Drugs is fruitless. “We know that criminal prohibition has failed,” said former police chief turned MP Bill Blair. “Legalization seeks to regulate and restrict access to cannabis and will make Canada safer.” But cannabis isn’t the topic for debate. Blair summoned up what is pertinent to the War on Drugs across every nation: that it has failed. The hypocrisy that is the DEA’s refusal to acknowledge the medicinal benefits of cannabis cannot go unnoted; yet, more importantly, they have been caught red-handed, admitting tacitly during a House Judiciary Committee Hearing that the DEA sells drugs to people on the streets with the goal of catching “bigger fish.” The War on Drugs is perpetuated by the Drug Enforcement Agency who insists on locking people up for years at a time, for possession of what is still scheduled as a Class A substance, though now legal in many US states. In the first week of April, the DEA was questioned over whether they allow shipments of drugs into the community for the sake of making a bigger bust down the track. The Washington Post reported on the transcript between Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric L. Richmond asking the DEA’s appointed acting director Chuck Rosenberg on the issue: “RICHMOND: This committee held many hearings, and was furious about the Fast and Furious program. At least from my knowledge of DEA and other drug agencies, oftentimes part of a bigger sting is letting transactions and other things go through. Now, it’s a very specific question. In DEA’s past, present, future, any times do you let drugs hit communities to get the bigger fish? ROSENBERG: We’re not supposed to, no, sir. RICHMOND: Okay. Are you aware of any instances where it may happen? ROSENBERG: I’ll have to check and get back to you on that.” Although Rosenberg didn’t outright confirm it, he didn’t deny the allegation either. If he had, he would have perjured himself at the committee hearing. The Washington Post notes Rosenberg’s unwillingness to be forthcoming unsurprising as there is “considerable evidence that DEA does allow drugs to enter communities in the hopes of bringing down major players in drug dealing and distribution.” Eighteen months ago, the DEA was also criticized by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General for approving illegal activities of sources. “These inadequate DEA policies and procedures related to OIA greatly increase the risk to the DEA, the U.S. government, and the public from the involvement of DEA confidential sources in OIA,” the audit repo [...]
