Medical Marijuana Research

What is Cannabinol (CBN)?

Cannabinol, or CBN, is one of the compounds unique to marijuana plants, and it has only recently gained some traction of understanding. Like cannabidiol, it is considered to have many medicinal benefits that do not include the psychoactive results of THC, making it yet another reason that medical marijuana should be legalised.

Cannabis Oil Dosing

Medicinal cannabis therapy is said to be dose dependent. That means the healing rate is dependent on the dose rate. The more cannabis in your blood the faster you will heal. The aim of medicinal cannabis therapy is to ingest marijuana oil orally and as much as your body can tolerate as often as you can tolerate it.

How to Make Cannabis Tincture

Place a bottle of 95% ethanol in the freezer over night. Chop the raw plant material up and place it in an empty bottle no more then 3/4 full and put that in the freezer too with the lid off. The next day pour the freezing cold ethanol into the bottle of frozen herb until covered by 1/4 to a 1/3 over the top of the herb, put the lid on tight and shake for three minutes then stop.

Medicinal Cannabis Therapy

When preparing a tincture or whole plant medicinal extract many solvents will take up cannabis resin, meaning a mix of cannabinoids and terpenes. A complete medicinal extract is a three part synergy of cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids, which is the third component of cannabis synergism of the entourage effect.

The Endocannabinoid System

It is a perfectly natural and healthy system that our bodies need. Discovered less than thirty years ago by an American scientist by the name of Dr. Allyn Howlett, the endocannabinoid system is responsible for a number of biological processes, perhaps least of which include the reception and interaction with compounds found in cannabis.

What Are Cannabinoids?

If you know anything about marijuana plants, then you are probably already familiar with the term “cannabinoids.” You may even think about the common cannabinoid, THC, and perhaps your thoughts even jump to CBD. However, what about the lesser known cannabinoids? Are they important too? Better yet, how do they all fit together within the cannabinoid system?

The History of Medicinal Marijuana

Medicinal Marijuana has been used for thousands of years and records in China exist from 5000BC documenting its use. Medicinal Marijuana is now legally recognised in Switzerland, Holland, United States of America, India and France. The THC molecule is the most powerful of natural medicines.

Growing Marijuana

When deciding to grow marijuana some people suggest it's best to consult the internet. Personally I am very fond of the book - deluxe edition 'Marijuana Growers Guide". It covers everything in good detail and costs under $20.00.
