There is no doubt that cannabis use is a widely debated topic, with many individuals on both sides arguing both for and against legalizing the sale and distribution for various reasons. One of the largest arguments for the legalization of this substance however, comes in the form of legalization for medical purposes. In fact, medicinal marijuana has been used for centuries as a remedy to heal the sick, and has recently been shown to ease chronic pain, help reduce seizures in those with epilepsy, bring back appetites for those who are in chemotherapy and more. Because of this, many states have begun to listen to the pro-cannabis activists and have made medical marijuana legal (22 states in all as of the 2015 election period)[1]. It is no secret that there has been a lot of talk lately surrounding the theory that cannabis can actually help to aid in the treatment …

How Does Dabbing Work?


icon  23 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

In case you are somehow involved with cannabis, whether medically, recreationally or from a business point of view, then you have probably heard about “dabbing”. It’s been over a decade since this method of consumption has been around, but the onset of more progressive extraction methods has brought on more cannabis concentrates, making dabbing more popular than ever. A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate. The dabbing method involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling it through a dab ring. The dabs are obtained by extracting cannabinoids, including THC, with a solvent, which is usually butane or carbon dioxide. The final result is a sticky oil that is commonly known as shatter, wax, budder or BHO (butane hash oil). The good news for some is that there is the possibility of extracting only the THC, which is the really medicine in marijuana. The Medical Benefits …

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs


icon  18 Jan, 2016  /  icon  4        Author: Support Pot Valet

In spite of all the health benefits medical marijuana has to offer us, scientists and medical professionals have always wondered if smoking marijuana will damage our lungs. After all, we know for sure that smoking in general (cigarettes or tobacco) can have a negative impact over the lungs; so perhaps the smoke of marijuana also does. However, according to a study conducted at Emory University, this may not be the case. A NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys) cross sectional-analysis discovered that adults between 18 and 59 years old, who smoked one joint (a marijuana cigarette) a day, were able to exhale the same FEV1 (forced expiratory volume, also known as the expiratory volume of air), in one second. Spirometry, which measures a person’s ability to exhale, is the method through which doctors diagnose respiratory illnesses that impair lung function. It was the method applied to the subjects involved …

3 Big Marijuana Myths Busted


icon  16 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Cannabis opponents have, for decades, controlled the message around this popular plant, and have spread a few lies about its actual effects. This caused the use of marijuana to be a stigmata, a cause with effects that haven’t still worn off. The failed and expensive US war on drugs continues, and it seems the criminalization of cannabis users and distributors is a main priority in this war. Some of the governmental agencies continue to stubbornly classify marijuana as dangerous and with no medical value, in spite of the stacks of evidence that prove the contrary. While many know the truth about cannabis (that it is more effective than some prescription drugs in treating some illnesses and that it is healthier than alcohol) and while more than half of Americans want it legalized, the marijuana myths are still around in some mainstream circles. Those who oppose legalization are determined to ignore …

The Recent Science Behind Medical Marijuana


icon  14 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

Until now, almost half of the states in America have legalized medical marijuana. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not regulated it since the drugs remain at the federal level. This forces medical users to search for treatment by themselves. There are thousands of years since humans have used cannabis, yet only in the past few decades have science professionals begun to really have a grasp on how the wide range of chemicals in cannabis function for the human health. Ingredients in Medical Marijuana Among other ingredients, in marijuana, there are at least 104 active cannabinoids.  These mimic the action of the brain’s signaling chemicals, which are known as endocannabinoids. These dock with some of the receptors that are situated on the surface of cells. For example, some of the cannabinoids dock with the receptors of adrenaline and serotonin.

Since August 2015, the Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara Program has benefited from one approved Medical Marijuana Dispensary, located in the Outer State Street area.

The city of Santa Barbara needs to take action before March 1, 2016 if it really wants to manage its dispensaries. Governor Jerry Brown signed 3 laws in October that have to do with the cultivation, transport and also the selling of medical marijuana in Santa Barbara. They would not substitute for local laws that municipalities make before the deadline. As the suggested ordinance is created at this point, Santa Barbara will permit as much as 3 dispensaries yet no commercial farming. Just citizens with a doctor’s notice can cultivate medical marijuana at home. There are as much as 25, 000 medical marijuana patients in the South County, Howe stated, however it is going to be important to not grow very rapidly. The Architectural Board of Review has recently approved the proposal for the Milpas region, and the application for 2609 De la Vina St. continues to be criticized. Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara …

Those interested in marijuana cancer treatment should have a look over the next few paragraphs, and see what this miraculous plant can do. Marijuana has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. Scientists have discovered cannabinoids, the biologically active components in marijuana, to be biologically active and effective in treating some diseases, including cancer. At present, the US Drug Enforcement Administration has listed marijuana and the cannabinoids under the Schedule I controlled substances, which means is only legal to treat some of the medical conditions in many states. Marijuana and Cancer Treatment Studies Several scientific studies of smoked marijuana discovered that it could be useful in dealing with vomiting and nausea from the cancer treatment of chemotherapy. A number of reports have discovered that inhaled (used to smoke or perhaps vaporized) marijuana could possibly help in the therapy of neuropathic pain (aches brought on by damaged nerves). Testing has also proved that smoked marijuana has also helped improve the diet in HIV sufferers. Research has long demonstrated that individuals who used marijuana extract in medical testing tended to require much less pain medication.
