Medical Marijuana: A Rapidly Evolving Field of Interest

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States[1]; globally, it is the most widely cultivated, trafficked, and abused illicit drug,[2] and it has the longest recorded history of human use. As early as 5,000 years ago, early Chinese texts documented the medicinal benefits of Cannabis sativa extracts unrelated to its psychoactive properties, including alleviation of pain and cramps.[3,4]Cannabis was also familiar in the Old World (eg, ancient Greece, Rome, the Middle East, North Africa) and its use gradually spread to the New World (Western Hemisphere, including the Americas).

How Safe is Your Vape Pen? Project CBD

The Hidden Dangers of Propylene Glycol

Jahan Marcu, PhD, reports on the hidden dangers of propylene glycol and vape pens that smolder.

Portable electronic devices, known as “vape pens,” are increasingly popular among medical marijuana patients and others because they provide a convenient, discreet, and presumably benign way to administer cannabis. But how safe are vape pens and the liquid solutions inside the cartridges that attach to these devices? Who knows what’s actually being inhaled?

It’s generally assumed that vaping is a healthier method of administration than inhaling marijuana smoke, which contains noxious substances that may irritate the lungs. Since a vaporizer heats the cannabis flower or oil concentrate without burning it, the active ingredients are inhaled but no smoke is involved. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work.

Skunk-like cannabis’ increases risk of psychosis, study suggests

Smoking potent cannabis was linked to 24% of new psychosis cases analysed in a study by King’s College London.

The research suggests the risk of psychosis is three times higher for users of potent “skunk-like” cannabis than for non-users.

The study of 780 people was carried out by KCL’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience.

A Home Office spokesman said the report underlines the reasons why cannabis is illegal.

Scientists found the risk of psychosis was five times higher for those who use it every day compared with non-users.

They also concluded the use of hash, a milder form of the drug, was not associated with increased risk of psychosis.

Psychosis refers to delusions or hallucinations that can be present in certain psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
