Medical Marijuana has higher treating potency for Women than Men

Medical MarijuanaDr. Rebecca Craft has good news especially for female medical marijuana patients. The plant’s potency to treat the pain is higher in women than men. A psychology researcher and professor at Washington State University, Dr. Rebecca Craft reports that the existence of estrogen hormones explains this difference.

            Definitely, it’s not wholly good news. Higher level of estrogen also leads women to some of its negative side effects. Crafts highlight much influential marijuana as a catalyst for the research. She stated that medical marijuana is so different than it was before (around 40 years ago). She furthered that now, it is considerably lower in cannabidiol(CBD) and so higher in THC. So, a little bit leads to quite long way.

            Craft’s research shows that female rates are at 30% more likely to get benefit from pain relieving effects of THC. Alas! The research also founded that the negative side effects of medical marijuana are also much common for females as compared to males. Craft added that Women are at great risk with negative effects like confusion, pain attacks, anxiety, extreme paranoia or hallucinations

            However, Craft has been doing research on drug sensitivities in women female medical marijuana patients for so many years. She has manipulated the level of hormones to track out the changes in drug sensitivities and has determined that estrogen hormone is the cause behind it.

            What she finds with THC is that we get a clear-cut spur in drug sensitivities when the female medical marijuana patients are ovulating – Just right when their estrogen level goes higher and then are coming down.

The research also explores that female medical marijuana patients develop more tolerance to THC than males. Even with reducing the dosage in the drug sensitivity, females were still continued to develop more tolerance than males.

            According to the research, increased desire for junk food or the munchies effect sets males apart from females when it comes to medical marijuana’s effect.

Medical Marijuana supporters march in front of Halifax police headquarters

Medical MarijuanaMedical marijuana created some ciaos; the Halifax police were nowhere in sight during the time when 50 people were passing around joints right on their front steps this Friday afternoon. The protest referred to as ‘smoke-in’ was for the recent raid of a medical marijuana shop in Gottingen Street known as the Farm Assists.

In front of the Halifax Regional police headquarters, the shop owner Chris Enns angrily shouted into the megaphone that when there are so many addictive, nasty drugs out there all over the province, why were the people using cannabis as a medicine targeted?

The 29 year old owner of medical marijuana shop, Enns and his girlfriend Sherri Reeve both were charged for the raid. Along with that, the charges included medical marijuana trafficking, possession for the purpose of production and trafficking.

Supporters were holding hand drawn signs and some of them were wearing masks. They all marched down from the shop to Gottingen, close to the corner of Buddy Daye Street, all the way to police headquarters which are at the corner of Cogswell Street.

Medical MarijuanaAs they were marching, a lot of drivers were honking and many people got out of the stores from Gottingen to show support by cheering and clapping. A Halifax Police cruiser passed by with a uniformed officer inside; he glared out the window before driving away. There were a number of people in the crowd who drove from outside Halifax. They said that they wanted to show support and say that a lot of medical marijuana users are living in instability due to Canada’s laws.

People’s Views:

A valley resident called Bert Martin said that we want to make people aware that Chris isn’t the only and anyone of us could have been in his shoes. They only targeted him because he obviously was an easy target. Martin and his wife, Lavina both grow their own pot and are approved medical marijuana users.

An 28 year old man, Chris who was seen pushing a friend’s baby stroller in the march said that even though he wasn’t a member of Farm Assists, he was here to support family and friends who use medical marijuana, which includes in brother-in-law. He said that they only thing that allowed him to stay healthy during chemo was marijuana.

The rules related to medical marijuana were changes by health Canada on April 1, and the new rules prohibited homegrown weed production when it came to people who grow and sell them to users. Health Canada is slowly approving applications for becoming commercial growers.

Ottawa appeals to Supreme Court for medical marijuana access regulations

Medical MarijuanaThe federal state is heading to the judicial Court of Canada to determine that either medical marijuana patients have a right to cannabis butters, teas, oils and lotions.

Last month, The Public Prosecution service appealed for the decision of B.C.’s in the Owen Smith case. On 14th of August, The appeal Court said that the medical marijuana legalization is Unconstitutional.

Two of the judges ignored the federal government’s appeal in the case of Owen Smith. Back in 2009, He was charged for the Illegalized possession of marijuana after the police officers found marijuana cookies, grape seed oil and olive oil in an apartment.

With Smith’s trial, Lawyer has argued that the access to medical marijuana is unconstitutional, and it did not raise the State’s interest to protect the public safety. But they forced the patients to smoke medical marijuana, which was very harmful to them.

Finally, Judge Robert Johnston ruled that it was unconstitutional right to medical marijuana patients to use dried marijuana plants alone. Johnson gave a year to Health Canada to answer to his ruling.

Smith was executed out of drug offenses, and the Crown has appealed Johnston’s decision. The appealing notice is based on two questions: Either Smith has to challenge the constitutional rights of medical marijuana access regulations or either such regulations are not consistent with the Charter of Right and Freedom. Tousaw Said, No date has been fixed yet. He finds it as heartbreaking that the government will spend a huge amount of tax dollars to fight against patient’s right to get approved marijuana drugs in the form of cookies. He looks forward to the defense of patients before the Supreme Court. This is an exceptional case because the Supreme Court has dealt with such case.

Smith felt proud that he has represented the many medical marijuana patients who find relief from edible pot extracts.
