Cannabis-Infused Tea Is Effective in Treating Chronic Pain

Have you experimented on drinking cannabis-infused tea? Tea in itself has a calming effect and is a great alternative to traditional edibles.

According to a new study published in the Journal of Pain Research, it can help patients suffering from chronic pain. Italian researchers assessed the use of cannabinoids for intractable pain in over 600 patients. Study subjects were typically over the age of 60 and consumed cannabinoids via infused tea. They reported that no subjects in the study complained of severe side effects and that only a few patients discontinued cannabis treatment.

In conclusion, researchers said that “The treatment seems to be effective and safe in the majority of patients.”

The result was not a surprise. Infusing tea with cannabis has been around since 2737 B.C.  A Chinese emperor prescribed the concoction to combat a host of illnesses. Aside from pain, cannabis tea may help relieve anxiety, nausea, and symptoms of autoimmune disorders.

Cannabis-Infused Tea Dosing

You can start off with 1 cup of cannabis tea each day. For new patients, you can take even smaller amounts (half cup). Then gradually increase the dose (up to two cups per day), also known as microdosing. The effects usually become noticeable after 30-90 minutes and may last up to 4-8 hours. This mode of administration is well-suited for patients with muscle spasms, nausea, and rheumatoid pain because of the slow-acting, but long-lasting effect.

You can make your own infused tea with a few drops of tinctures or consume a ready-made tea from BrewBudz.

California Now Offers Recreational Proposition 64

Before recreational law Prop 64 passed, there has been a successful medical use program through Prop 215.
Since 1996, Californians have known a freedom that the rest of the country often envied or feared. When enacted, Prop 215 provided safe medical access and protection from prosecution; for medicating by smoking, eating, vaping or any other intake method your health malady requires.

This movement was more than the hippies who just wanted to grow and smoke flowers for health. In 1996, Prop 215 laid the foundation for the rest of the country to begin to understand and accept this path to alternative remedies. Slowly, state-by-state, medical compassionate use laws have been enacted, and people are beginning to heal. Currently, over half of the states in the US, have voted to allow home medical grows and safe access through dispensaries.

Historically California Set the Medical Bar

Patients and providers used California legalization of safe medical access; to pave the way and set standards for access and care for two decades. That proactive stance has become medical use standards across the nation.

Setting standards for things like, online medical recommendations and online medical access cards. California created these services that have allowed sick people in rural areas, who are bedridden and otherwise unable to get the care they need; have safe access to natural plant based health care.

Prop 64 will not affect the medical system, including, online medical recommendations. For those who are sick online sources and dispensaries, should be considered the foundation for safe medical access through California’s legalization of medical.

This medical charge in the 1990s, allowing patients to help patients heal, teach and grow as a community helped show the citizens that this plant was not as bad as they thought. This knowledge showed this plant contained more health and recreational value than the public knew. As the public perception and fears subsided and became based in hands-on reality, the people began to relax.

Over the last number of years, several other states have allowed recreational use to exist along side of medical access. In each of these states, the use differences are obvious between medical and recreational. For those who need medicine, they need to continue with the system that has been in place for so many years, helping, protecting and healing patients. The recreational market, as great as it is, is not designed to help sick people. Prop 64 is designed to give access to all adults; the medical market is still how the ill will find care.

Prop 64 Adult Use, Rights to Recreate

California voted yes on historical change this November. The yes nod to Prop 64, now gives all adults in California rights to possess one ounce and grow six plants per household. Allowing for all people over 21 to decide how they relax and recreate.

California legalization through, Prop 64, will take effect immediately, but that does not mean you will have access right away. As of right now, anyone 21 or older can possess an ounce, have six plants (but they must be hidden and protected by a lock) and you can still only smoke in the privacy of your home or a private residence.

Immediate for All Users

For now, recreationally, you cannot buy it, you cannot sell it, but you can give up to one ounce away as a gift.

Seeds are not for sale yet, but if someone offers you some for free, you can plant them.

Possession of concentrates up to 8 grams for recreational use, but there is a current conflict with the wording of the law. Part of the law refers to your recreational concentrate limit at 4grams; this conflict will be handled in court, soon. These rules for recreational use will be the system until the laws and regulations are in full effect in 2018.

It will not be until Jan 1, 2018; that stores are allowed to open for access to recreational use and purchasing through Prop 64.  Medical safe access collectives and dispensaries will remain open for medical patients and will not be affected by the 2018 date. Unfortunately, dispensaries will not be selling anything recreational to anyone. You cannot have access to your local clinic without a medical recommendation from your doctor.

The medical compassionate use rules have not changed for now. Through the next couple of years, the medical use system will be subject to licensing and further regulations. For now, Prop 215 is business as usual.

Medical patients should remain using the patient helping patient access model that has been in place for 20 years. Your doctors are still going to know what is best for your conditions. Doctors using online medical systems will still be there to provide you with quality care and protection from persecution for your medical use.

As the dust settles and all adult Californians have equal access to the flowers, edibles, tinctures and oils of their choice; there will be a collective sigh of relief. As a medical patient, you should celebrate your system that has been taking care of you for decades. Soon enough the sick and the well will lift a joint in toast and toke for freedom for all.

Medical Cannabis for Chronic Pain

The most common reason that people use cannabis is for chronic pain. Both THC and CBD in cannabis have analgesic effects and studies backing this show astounding results.

For instance, a clinical trial conducted in Canada has found that three puffs a day of cannabis help people with chronic nerve pain due to injury or surgery feel less pain and sleep better. Mark Ware, MD, assistant professor at McGill University in Montreal, and his team evaluated 21 men and women with neuropathic pain. They tried different cannabis strains with varying potencies – 9.5 percent being the most potent, the next concentration at 6 percent THC, and the least potent was 2.5 percent THC. The participants used all three strains including placebo and they didn’t know which they were using.

The cannabis was put into gelatin capsules, then put into the bowl of a pipe. Each person was told to inhale for five seconds while the cannabis was lit, hold the smoke in their lungs for 10 seconds, and then exhale.

They did this single puff three times a day for five days for each of the doses and the placebo. The participants were allowed to continue on their routine pain medications.

After five days of clinical trials, the participants rated their pain on a scale of zero to 10, with 10 being the worst. The dose with 9.4 percent THC provided the most relief, with their pain down to 5.4, whereas the placebo had the relief at 6.1.

5 Physical Illnesses That A Medicinal Plant Could Cure

Earth’s own natural medicine has many benefits to its patients, whether it’s mental or physical, for pain relief or for healing of the immune system.

Yes, believe it or not, this medicine can indeed help patients heal and improve their immune system. Here are five different examples of physical illnesses where this plant can have a huge impact regarding pain relief and healing:

Cold/Flu

Yes, you can indeed cure your cold or flu just with this medicinal plant. Flavonoids are substances that exists in all plants and helps with fighting the flu and strengthen the immune system, but when it comes to pot, this plant contains flavonoids that are not found in others, which acts as part of the anti-inflammatory effects. It can also help protect your blood cells from rupturing and increase your levels of vitamin C.

Multiple Sclerosis

Research has shown that CBD (Cannabidiol) can be used to treat multiple Sclerosis (MS)-like symptoms. CBD assists with preventing immune cells from mutating and attacking the nerve cells in the spinal cord, which stops the disease from spreading across the body.

Type 2 Diabetes

In May of 2013, a study done by the American Journal of Medicine displayed that this plant could indeed play a key role in controlling people’s blood sugar levels. The study looked at 4657 people, both active and former users of this medicine, and showed that those who were currently still using it had a 16% reduction in fasting insulin levels and a 17% drop in HOMA-IR, which is what measures the insulin resistance and the beta-cell function.

Cancer

The Cannabinoids that exist in this plant can help defeat cancer by inhibiting the tumor growth and killing the cancer cells. The CBD helps with destroying the metastasis, the gene that spreads the cancer to other organs, and the THC, the main ingredient of the plant, naturally activates the endocannabinoids in your body, which further helps destroying the cancer.

HIV

It has been shown that this medicinal plant can help with HIV/AIDS patients with their appetite, mood and pain relief. Now, it has been discovered that daily doses of THC also had some impressive results when treating animals suffering from HIV. There was a decrease in the damage of the immune tissue on the gut; A vital area site for HIV infection.

5 Mental Illnesses That A Medicinal Plant Could Cure

Earth’s medicinal plant contains ingredients that makes it one of the most natural medicines on the planet. Not only is there no risk for an addiction: It’s also one of the top medicines against many different kinds of mental illnesses. To give a further of explanation of the strength of the medicine, here are five different mental illnesses that can be treated by this plant:

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also more famously known as PTSD, is an anxiety condition caused after experiencing a disturbing event, such as military combat, sexual assault. One major contributor of PTSD is endocannabinoid deficiency, in which the body stops producing enough endocannabinoids to fill receptor sites, which leads to difficulties in relief of painful memories. The cannabinoids in this plant play a therapeutic role in replacing these missing endocannabinoids, which then can help bring relief of bad memories.

Insomnia

If you’re suffering from insomnia, then taking a hit before bedtime could do wonders for your sleep. In general, Indicas tends to be the better option when looking for a strain to smoke before bed because of the higher amount of CBD which allows the body to become more relaxed and sleepy.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Very small doses of THC can slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins, one of the main contributors to Alzheimer’s Disease. This was discovered by a preclinical study made by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in 2014, which also supported the effectiveness of THC and how it prohibits the growth of toxic amyloid plagues that can also contribute to Alzheimer’s.

Depression

Similar to PTSD, this medicinal plant has been shown to be an effective treatment against depression caused by chronic stress. In a 2015 study done by the University of Buffalo, the results showed that stress caused by a decrease in natural cannabinoids molecules found in the brain can lead to depression, which the plant can replace.

The Benefits of Possessing a California Medicinal Card

Everyone’s favorite drug is getting legalized across the country, but if you’re a resident in California, you’ve probably already had access to Mary-Jane and are familiar with its medicinal effects. If you’re suffering from illnesses such as cancer, anorexia, HIV/AIDS, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, migraines, or other chronic illnesses, possessing a medicinal card will greatly benefit both your health and your budget, as you will no longer require to purchase many of the expensive drugs sold by the pharmaceutical industry, and no longer risk addiction as this plant offers no risk of addiction.

Outside of having access to this medicine, by possessing a California medicinal card you will finally have access into all of California’s 500 medical dispensaries. These dispensaries are very similar to the coffeeshops in Amsterdam, with dozens of strains to choose from and choices of sativas, indicas, and hybrids. There will also be staff and budtenders that will guide you in finding a strain that suits you and your desire of medicinal effects, and some dispensaries even offer rooms with Volcano vaporizers, so you can medicate with fellow patients at the location and in a safe space.

If you’re unable to grow plants at home, then a compassionate use card is definitely the best option.
