So, What is Medical Marijuana?

A marijuana dose - What is the right dose for Medical Marijuana?Written references to the use marijuana as a medicine date back nearly 5,000 years. Western medicine embraced marijuana’s medical properties in the mid-1800s, and by the beginning of the 20th century, physicians had published more than 100 papers in the Western medical literature recommending its use for a variety of disorders. Cannabis remained in the United States pharmacopoeia until 1941, removed only after Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act which severely hampered physicians from prescribing it. The American Medical Association (AMA) was one of the most vocal organizations to testify against the ban, arguing that it would deprive patients of a past, present and future medicine.

What can medical Marijuana help with?
Modern research suggests that cannabis is a valuable aid in the treatment of a wide range of clinical applications. These include pain relief-particularly of neuropathic pain (pain from nerve damage)-nausea, spasticity, glaucoma, and movement disorders. Marijuana is also a powerful appetite stimulant, specifically for patients suffering from HIV, the AIDS wasting syndrome, or dementia. Emerging research suggests that marijuana’s medicinal properties may protect the body against some types of malignant tumors and are neuroprotective.

Currently, more than 60 U.S. and international health organizations-including the American Public Health Association, Health Canada and the Federation of American Scientists-support granting patients immediate legal access to medicinal marijuana under a physician’s supervision. (Click here for a complete listing of organizations.) Several others, including the American Cancer Society and the American Medical Association support the facilitation of wide-scale, clinical research trials so that physicians may better assess cannabis’ medical potential. In addition, a 1991 Harvard study found that 44 percent of oncologists had previously advised marijuana therapy to their patients. Fifty percent responded they would do so if marijuana was legal. A more recent national survey performed by researchers at Providence Rhode Island Hospital found that nearly half of physicians with opinions supported legalizing medical marijuana.

  1. leider haben wir wegen der nutzlosen cdu und den rest der politik keine chance! hinzu kommt das wir in deutschland in der pharma hochburg leben. der dreck wie bayer und damals die nazipharmagang ig farben die heute unter anderen namen noch aktiv ist, mit menschen die damals soweit ich weiß im krieg auch aktiv waren, teils heute noch da arbeiten bzw nachdem krieg auch noch da waren. wir werden hier wegen diesen tatsachen erstmal kaum eine chance haben. bis jetzt sind es ca 160 leute in deutschland die es bekommen, doch meistens todkrank sind. deutschland ist das dümmste land in der hinsicht, weil die meisten ärzte ihren beruf hier nicht können und richtig kennen. hier wird nichts aus berufung gemacht, sondern wegen dem beruf und das geld, ansehen usw. ich würde gern cannabis als medizin nutzen, da ich chronische pankreatitis habe und es helfen würde bei darmerkrankungen, schmerzen verdaungung hunger usw. leider sind hier zu 90% nur pharmaleute am start, die nur gierig sind und keinerlei menschliche züge haben. zudem helfen die meisten schulmedizinischen präparate nicht viel. im gegenteil, sie machen das meiste schlimmer und töten einen im schlimmsten fall. die beste medizin bei schmerzen und chronischen erkrankungen bis hin zu tödlichen krankheiten sind immer noch cannabis und opiate. danach kommen heilkräuter und enzyme. den rest kann man knicken! bei uns in deutschland sind leider noch dinosaurier am werke und wollen den status quo am leben erhalten, um mehr profit zu machen. medizin ist hilfe und medikamente, wenn es die richtigen sind auch und lieber soll es mir besser gehen und selbst wenn sich daraus eine sucht ergibt. solang man an seine medizin jeden tag kommt, gibt es auch keine nebenwirkungen “kriminalität” genannt. auch medikamente die man ein lebenlang nehmen muss, sind wie eine sucht. ergo ist das meiste von verboten heuchlerei um schwarz mehr geld zu erzielen, was der totale schwachsinn ist. menschen werden hier in deutschland lieber als dreck behandelt und leider wird das auch so bleiben. bestes beispiel unsere politik. sie ist nicht fürs volk, sondern für hässliche menschen die geld haben wollen!!!

    english- Unfortunately, we have no chance because of the useless cdu and the rest of the policy! We moreover that in Germany in the stronghold of pharma live. the dirt like bayer and at that time the nazipharmagang ig colors that today under another name still is active, with people at the time as far as I know in the war were also active, partly because work still today or after war were also still there. We’re here for now little chance because of these facts. so far, there are ca 160 people in Germany who have it, but are mostly terminally ill. Germany is the stupidest country in this respect, because most doctors their occupation here right know and can not. here nothing from appeal is made, but because of the occupation and the money, watch, etc I would like to use cannabis as medicine because I have chronic pancreatitis and it would help with bowel disease, pain unfortunately, only pharmaleute are verdaungung hunger, etc. here 90% at home, which are just greedy and have no human traits. In addition most allopathic drugs don’t help much. on the contrary, they make the most worse and kill one in the worst case. the best medicine for pain and to deadly diseases, chronic diseases are still cannabis and opiates. then come the medicinal herbs and enzymes. You can bend the rest! We in Germany still dinosaurs are most works and want the status quo most live get to make more profit. medicine is help and, if there are the right also and rather it should go better medicines and even if one finds it yields. as long as one of his medicine every day comes, there is also no side effects ‘crime’ called. also medicines that a long life must take, as one searches. ERGO is the most of prohibited heuchlerei to achieve black more money, what is the total bullshit. people are treated here in Germany rather than dirt and unfortunately the also remain that way. the best example of our policy. It is not for the people but for ugly people who want to have money!
