How Medical Marijuana Can Improve The Quality Of Your Sleep

Submitted by Marijuana News There is an extensive, ever-growing body of peer-reviewed medical research which attest to the efficacy of cannabis in aiding restful sleep for patients of all ages. Chronic insomnia and other sleep disorders are extremely common in the United States, affecting an estimated 50 to 70 million adults.  While some are able to find relief in conventional medications, such as Lunesta and Ambien, pharmaceutical sleeping aids are not effective for every patient. Moreover, prescription sleep medication can have bothersome side effects, have dangerous interactions with other medications, lead to physical dependence, and even pose a risk...

Leukemia and medical marijuana: Here are the facts

Submitted by Marijuana News Few experiences are more devastating than a cancer diagnosis. A leukemia diagnosis can be especially jarring, given that we typically hear of it in movies as a predator of children, even though the medical community has found that children have the highest state of remission at 94 percent, with adults at up to 40 percent after five years. A cancer of the blood, leukemia affects the bone marrow, red blood cells, white blood cells and the cells that cause clotting. Its symptoms include chills, weakness, susceptibility to infection, weight loss, bruising, swollen lymph nodes and bone...

Worldwide cannabis sales to grow 853% by 2024, new report estimates

Submitted by Marijuana News It’s no secret that cannabis is considered one of the hottest investment trends of this generation on Wall Street. Although selling a processed plant isn’t exactly what you might call innovative, the black market for global weed sales generates tens of billions of dollars each year. This means there are clear-cut reasons to believe that these illicit sales can be moved to legal channels in the years to come. Since 1996, we’ve seen two-thirds of all U.S. states give medical marijuana the green light, with 11 of these states also allowing adult-use consumption and/or retail...

Global CBD market expected to grow by 40 percent this year

Submitted by Marijuana News CBD is the new sliced bread, toilet paper on rolls, and bottled spring water. And we can expect to see more traditional business sectors getting into CBD in the near future. If the non-intoxicating marijuana compound cannabidiol (CBD) were a deadly virus sent to Earth by the Devil himself, it would be well on its way to rendering the global population extinct within the next few years. If it were a stark-raving mad serial killer fresh out of the asylum, there would be a murderous rampage underway that would later be revealed as the largest...

Olivia Newton John Claims Cannabis Has “Helped Me Greatly” With Cancer Battle

By Heather Finn The actress was hesitant to try the alternative treatment at first, but her husband convinced her to take the leap. Ever since Olivia Newton-John’s first breast cancer diagnosis in 1992, the pop icon’s family, friends, and fans have been there cheering her on. But even as she’s publicly battled the disease, she’s never let it define her: In fact, since her cancer came back in 2013 (and again in 2017), she’s used it as inspiration to help others by opening her own public hospital: the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in Australia. This week...

CBD and hemp may be legal but discrimination continues

Submitted by Marijuana News It’s a problem that virtually all cannabis professionals have had to face at least one time—or a succession of times—in their careers. For Sabina King, 42, CEO of Ashland, Oregon-based Hempure CBD, a maker of hemp-derived CBD products, the industry’s prevalent banking challenge has been the scourge of her once promising startup. But this balm of familiarity has done little to ease her dilemma. “If somebody told me all about the obstacles I would encounter [in the CBD space], I’d say no way,” she said. Although Hempure CBD does “have a proper bank to hold...

How to talk to your doctor about cannabis use

Submitted by Marijuana News Have you had a bad experience disclosing cannabis use to a doctor? Did a doctor’s attitude toward cannabis impact the quality of care you received? You’re not alone. Unfortunately, a prevailing stigma, lack of exposure to current marijuana research, and confusion about the legality of discussing cannabis with patients are still barriers within the medical community that keep doctors from treating their cannabis-using patients accurately and fairly. One thing medical and non-medical cannabis users have in common with the rest of the world is that all need access to medical care. So what is a...

Cannabis ingredient CBD could one day become an antibiotic

Submitted by Marijuana News As scientists work to stem the tide of antibiotic resistance, the authors of a study believe an ingredient in cannabis could one day form the basis of a new drug. Antibiotic, or antimicrobial, resistance is where bugs such as bacteria can survive drugs created to kill them, making infections difficult, or impossible, to treat. Scientists in Australia found cannabidiol—the non-psychoactive ingredient marijuana— killed all the strains of bacteria they tested in a lab, including some which are highly resistant to existing antibiotics. What’s more, the bacteria did not become resistant to the drug after being...
