TOP 10 DISEASES WHERE SMOKING WEED HAS IMPACT

Medical Marijuana used in recreational settings shows weed smokers benefit from it. So here are the top 10 diseases where use of marijuana can be benefited.

  1. AIDS/HIV

Also known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome / Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Scientists believe that the HIV started with a certain type of chimpanzee  in Central Africa which carries Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (the chimpanzee version of aids) .

Human hunted the chimpanzees for meat and came into contact with their infected blood that transformed into HIV.

Research shows that people with AIDS/HIV who smoked marijuana have better sleep, gained appetite, have better moods and showed less neuropathic pain.

  1. Alzheimer’s

This is a disease caused by brain cell death. This disease is also known as the most common type of DEMENTIA or the loss of mental ability due to the increasing death of cells in the brain.

Although, studies show that it is common on people 65 of age and older, approximately 200,000 individuals are under the age of 65. Someone develops this disease in every 67 seconds in the US.

Smoking marijuana and some of the plant’s chemicals have been used to help patients with Alzheimer gain weight and it also lessens some troubled or nervous behaviours of the patients.

Researchers found it slowed the development of protein deposits in the brain which scientists think may be a part of what causes Alzheimer’s although no one really knows what causes the disease.

  1. Arthritis

Arthritis  is informally known as joint pain or joint disease.

There was a study made on 58 patients who uses the by-product of marijuana found that they had less pain and that they can sleep better. Another review of studies said that marijuana may help fight pain-causing inflammation.

  1. Asthma

Is a “chronic inflammatory disease of the airway” that causes shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, coughing and wheezing.

Studies are contradicting, but some early finding suggests that it reduced exercise-induced asthma.  Other cell studies showed that smoking weed could dilate human airways, but some patients experienced tight feeling on their chest and throat.

  1. Cancer

Is a name given to a collection of related diseases which can start anywhere in the body which is made up of trillions of cells.

As a normal process, human cells prow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them and when cells grow old or become damaged, they die and new cells take place.

When cancer develops, this orderly process breaks down. As cells become old or damaged, they survive when they should die and new cells form when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form growths called TUMORS.

Animal studies show that some marijuana extracts may kill cancer cells and some other cell studies show that it may stop cancer growth. With mice, THC improved the impact of radiation on cancer cells.

Smoking marijuana can also prevent nausea on chemotherapy patients.

  1. Chronic Pain

Is a pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Signals of pain remain active in the nervous system and can also last for years. Chronic pain has impact on both physical and emotional state of a person.

The physical pain felt by the body, in the long run can cause depression, anger, anxiety and fatigue which interact in complex ways with chronic pain making it worse and can decrease the body’s production of natural pain killers; to add up, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that extend sensations of pain, resulting to a dangerous cycle of pain for the person.

People widely used cannabinoids for pain relief in the 1800s due to some animal and human studies which show that cannabinoids have a substantial analgesic effect.

Other medicine based on cannabis such as “SATIVEX” are being tested on patients with multiple sclerosis and used to treat cancer pain. This drug has been approved in Canada and in some European countries. Scientists also show a 30% in reduction in pain involving 56 human patients who smoked weed.

  1. Crohn’s disease

An inflammation that develops anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract (GI), from mouth to anus.

In a small initial study of 13 patients observed over three months, they found that inhaled cannabis did improve life of people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.  It helped ease pain, limited the repetition of diarrhea and helped with appetite.

  1. Epilepsy

This is a common brain disorder characterized by recurrent seizures.  Varied as 2 or more seizures diagnosed based on the description of episodes; person’s medical and family history and results of diagnostic tests.

Trials conducted at NYU Langone Medical Center showed a 50% of reduction in the frequency of certain seizures in 213 patients (children and adult) who took medical marijuana extracts.

  1. Glaucoma

Is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss.

This is one of the main causes of blindness.

Researches proved that THC’s effect on this disease and found that it can lower eye pressure. It may also lower blood pressure, which could harm the optic nerve due to reduced blood supply. THC can also help preserve the nerves.

  1. Multiple Sclerosis

This is a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord. This happens when the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. In the long run it can cause nerves themselves to decay or become constantly damaged.

There is no known cure for MS. Using marijuana or some of the chemicals in the plant may help avoid muscle spasms, pain tremors and stiffness. Side effect on a study involving 20 patients is that it may harm memory.

Toronto Dispensary Raid “Project Claudia”

Toronto Dispensary Raid

 

 

Thursday May 26th in Toronto Dispensary Raids took place in Kensington Market and on the Danforth. With warrants on locations, police officers forcefully gained access, confiscating  269 kilograms of dry marijuana, as well as other THC products. police charged 186 people as well as making 90 arrests.  Complaints had been made that these shops were causing a “broad impact ” on the neighboring area close to location. The target was on dispensaries that were claimed to have been distributing marijuana products that did not comply with the  marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.

While some bystanders made commits indicating that this was a good thing to have happen, others were not happy to have witnessed the Toronto raid take place.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in regards to this situation. Whether you agree or not, personally i dont think it was necessary to make a scene by smashing shop windows.  For those that used these shops to get their medication from, they are now forced to go else where. Having these shops open to the public allowed marijuana users to get their THC from a safe and reliable source. Having a place to be able to get your medication from is crucial for many people, not just marijuana users.

In these kind of scenarios its been voiced by citizens that this is a waste of authorities’ time. That they’re not putting their resources to any good. Some people believe that there are more serious things happening in Toronto that should be addressed before taking action the way the have . Actions like these have left some people with disappointment.

Before the Dispensary raid to place, Notices were given earlier on this month to 78 property owners out of the 83 known medical marijuana dispensaries. Contravening the city’s zoning bylaw, these dispensaries were informed in the notice.

If it wasn’t for events like 420 protests or people gathering to voice  their preference towards marijuana,  we wouldn’t have legalization. This is going to be a long going process to have legalization, as well as a costly matter. This is worth speaking up, and fighting for!

I have a strong opinion towards marijuana, and the good it brings to people. It has so many things to offer and not just smoking and getting high, the marijuana can bring so much more to the table!

Mail Order Marijuana- Don’t get ripped off online!

-+Ordering Weed online? Then be sure to read the following before ordering marijuana online.

For over a decade, Canadians have been able to order particularly potent strains of marijuana, hashish, and other cannabis products online and have them shipped via snail mail in Canada.

Several Canadian websites are known for delivering high-quality cannabis straight to the consumer. The ordering process is straightforward. You pay via Online Banking Email Interac money transfer. It is shipped via Xpresspost courier, Canada post, you will be emailed the tracking number, trackable, no signature required, product is vacuum packed, no odor, no telling return address, no one will know what you got from Vancouver. You will know the delivery date. If you so desire, your package can be delivered to a local post office outlet for pickup.

In the USA, with D.C. and four states having legalized marijuana for recreational use, more civilized ways to get weed are finally emerging. However, for those who don’t live within “legalized” borders, buying weed online is the next safest route.

Stay away from buying pot online through classified sites like Craigslist due to possible scams. You should really beware buying anything on the internet from a not reputable source. And realize that there is an added element when you are buying marijuana online. You can get ripped off,

I know that it’s tough when you can’t find marijuana. I can understand that it’s tempting to try out one of the people online to see if they are legit or not. But remember, there are bad people out there on the internet that are scamming people using all kinds of stories. Using promises to provide marijuana is just one of the latest scams. These are the same people that are pretending to be princes from Nigeria, or a long lost relative from Europe.

So, in Canada for instance, how do several, reputable online suppliers, in business for many years, distribute marijuana in a country where recreational use is still illegal? The answer lies in the structure of Canada’s medical marijuana program.

Thousands of Canadian medical marijuana users are legally eligible to order marijuana from federally-licensed growers online. The weed is then carefully packaged and shipped to recipients via Canada Post or private courier systems. Prescription cannabis must be shipped according to certain standards, therefore online mail order weed companies ship their products in the same manner to recreational users. With so much marijuana being shipped across the country, and there is a lot, it would be easy for ‘contraband’ packages to sneak in amid ‘legitimate’ packages.

In business for many years without a problem, one of the first Canadian online sellers to recreational users states,
We are a legitimate business whose goal is to provide high-quality products and good customer service. We have an excellent reputation for being trustworthy and reliable. We believe that marijuana should be made available to all Canadians in a safe and responsible way….Our goal is to provide a service for personal use only…We believe in the legalization of marijuana and ending the stupid war on drugs… We are discreet in our shipping and operations, we do not seek publicity, and we advertise mainly through word of mouth. So far, Canadian police have had higher priorities than going after us. However, there is certainly a risk involved for us in doing this. We have never had a customer suffer a legal problem due to ordering from us. However, marijuana is still illegal in Canada, and there is always some potential risk. You can do your part by advocating among your friends and relatives an acceptance of marijuana. When the time comes to vote it would be nice if we were organized and supported one another”.

Another Online Marijuana vender says,
We believe that marijuana should be made legal (and it will soon) and so do the majority of Canadians who have suffered from this ongoing witch hunt for the last 60 years. It should be your sovereign right to possess a plant that naturally grows on planet earth as long as you do not harm others….If you are not yet a repeat customer, you might be thinking…Is this real? It must be a scam. well…we are very real and here to help you and your friends acquire the finest bud, food, hash, and other products that might be difficult to find in your local city or town in Canada. Remember that some cities in Canada are very tolerant of pot….”

Always order from a reputable source.

Why would my friends go back to buying weed from people on the street or friends who usually have one kind of weed to sell, and the count might be low, quality sucks, and forget about variety of Grade AAA strains and products such as shatter, wax, extracts and hash.
