What Makes Marijuana So Medicinal

Marijuana naturally has medicinal and psychoactive qualities that we can experience by eating or smoking the plant. This is because the plant has cannabinoids, chemical structures that occur in nature and can be copied in a lab. We have identified 86 cannabinoids in nature, and the marijuana plant contains many of them within its structure.
One of the cannabinoids present in marijuana is well known by its common name- THC. THC (delta-g-tetrahydrocannabinol) is considered a psychoactive, but it is not the only one to have psychoactive qualities. It is simply the most powerful one in the marijuana plant. Some of the other cannabinoids are cannabichromene, cannabidiol , cannabavarin, cannabinol, cannabigerol, cannabielsoin, cannabicyclol and cannabitriol.
There are many of these chemical structures in the plant, but we generally classify a plant by how much THC it has. That is what is meant by potency. In hemp products, there is less than 0.5% of it, whereas a leaf will have 2 to 3%. A really potent plant could have up to 20%. The best part of the plant to find THC however is in the seedless buds- the sinsemilla. These buds have at least 10% (and up to 20%) THC.
Different marijuana plants will have different amounts of THC. They are separated into strains. You can read about some of the highest potency strains in the marijuana grow bible , a free downloadable ebook.
You can also create high potency THC in tonics, extracts and hashish made from the plants. Hashish is made from cannabis resin that has been concentrated.
When using THC for therapy, your dose could range from 2.5 to 20 milligrams, and this can be obtained by smoking or vaporizing the plant. It’s not that hard to get that much THC from a small part of a plant. If, for example, you roll a joint out of 1 gram of a 2.5% leaf you will receive between 3 and 12 milligrams of THC. You lose some of the THC in the process, but it is still enough to have an effect.
Unfortunately, we can’t simply eat the plant to get the THC that we use. This is because although the plant has a naturally occurring THC, it is in a form that is not psychoactive. It needs to be heated in order to become the THC we are familiar with. Occasionally, the plant will start to convert some of its THC into the THC we use when it starts to get old, but heating the plant or using the resin found in hashish is the best way to get the most THC. If you are looking for a great way to eat your marijuana plant, try creating some butter out of some of the leaves.
This is just an intro about some of the medical benefits of the plant. For a more detailed report about the other active ingredients in marijuana , read the full guide published on I Love Growing Marijuana.com.
To your health!

Memory Loss

Memory Loss

Steve had a seizure/fit last Sunday at home. I called emergency and he was taken by ambulance to Stoke Mandeville our local A&E hospital. He stabilized quickly but was left confused and appeared to have no memory of recent events. Stoke Mandeville hospital kept him overnight and then transfer him back to University College Hospital in London once they had talked to Steve’s doctor there.

Since then Steve has no memory of the past year and vague memories of the previous year or so. He often thinks that what happen a couple of years ago happened yesterday. Neither can he retain short term memory. Everyday is a new day to him. We have to repeat where he is, why he’s in hospital, his time and treatment in Australia, our sale of Dignity, our return to England etc. every day. Often what we tell him in the morning is forgotten by the afternoon. After four days of repeating the same facts, I have written down the events of the last year so that Steve can read it over and over again.

Many checks have been performed to work out why Steve had his seizure and memory loss.
The results of the MRI showed no difference between the scan from before and after his seizure. This is good news as there are no noticeable damage to his brain and no sign that his lymphoma is increasing and causing the problem..

The neurologist did a whole load of tests. All physical reactions and reflexes were good. Steve was able to read fluently, respond articulately, name all pictures of objects and famous people shown and do numerical recalls extremely well. He has complete memory of his birth date, place of birth, our children’s birthdays, our anniversary date, all the things that he’s known for many years. He just does not have recent memories.

The neurologist is incline to think that the seizure and memory loss are caused by an infection. So specific test are being made for brain infections. We should get some results by Monday. Steve also had some EEG done on his brain mainly to check that he not having mini stroke. If Steve has a brain infection than the doctors are pretty confident that once treated, most of his memory will come back.

Steve is still very much himself although I think he is more cheerful, optimistic, mellower and funnier. He said it’s probably because he can’t remember his worries, although not remembering is a bit of a worry!

For me it’s been pretty distressing but I’m beginning to come to terms with this new complication. So for the moment I’m making the most this funnier and sweeter Steve while it lasts.

Frustration -> JOY

In the space of the last hour or so there has been much news.  Much of it from a very long chat with the Prof.

  • I can be moved to oral treatment for my fungal infection but this requires a three day overlap with the daily intravenous.  That means I get to GO HOME SATURDAY EVENING.  It is now close to certain.  That’ll do.
  • I have another Rituximub treatment planned for tomorrow to address possible EB Virus root cause.
  • I will be booked back into the hospital next Thursday.  I will definitely stay for some day tests and day treatment of more Rituximub.  I may stay longer depending on test results.
  • Recent scans showed active sites in spleen and liver.  Hard to tell exact cause.  In fact the Prof declared my case to be the most complicated he has been involved with in the last 10 years.  Doesn’t exactly sound good or encouraging but I am so relieved I am with Prof Linch and noone else.
  • Turns out he lives about a mile and a half from our new place and knows the area well.

From other sources

  • I’ve been told I’ll get delivery tracking info for the TV (read very flat screen of joy) this evening once it’s on the overnight truck.  I’m feeling confident.
  • I now have email from the company recommending the insurance check.  The reference laptop is finally reasonable and the price acceptable.  I’ve agreed to the proposal.  Looks encouraging.

How things can change in a short period of time.  We can visit all the shops we want to on Sunday and I have a good game to play on my X-Box for my during my R&R.  I might just use the big screen.

Just did a deal with the daily nurse to bring in my evening meds a couple of hours early for Friday / Saturday.  Means I get to go home sooner.

It doesn’t escape me there are still many things that could interfere with this plan but at least we now have one and a few things I’ve working towards over the last few days are falling into place.

Incidentally, this timetable allows me to be present when the builder and possible also the engineer/architect visit our new property next week.  All good in the near term.  The long term, well I’ve promised the Prof a local beer when we’re all done.  I have faith.

Uruguay’s President Trying To Legalize Marijuana Even Though He “Doesn’t Know What It Is”

Uruguay’s President Trying To Legalize Marijuana Even Though He “Doesn’t Know What It Is”

Uruguay–who’s motto is “Freedom or Death”–is trying to choose freedom for its country’s cannabis policy. President Jose Mujica, who claims he’s never even smoked weed (yeah, right), is spear-heading the country’s push to legalize. The bill would allow anyone over the age of 17 to buy a little under an ounce and a half of marijuana a month–legally–from “state-sanctioned distributors.”

Based on this report, Mujica and his contingency are not (as is typically the case) just blowing hot smoke. Even if he has no idea what a cannabinoid is:

“I have never tried it in my life and I don’t know what it is,” Mújica told Radio Carve, a local radio station. He added that he’s aware “a lot of young people have tried it.”

Mújica’s somewhat surprising admission came shortly before he met with José Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), to discuss a recent report on drug consumption in the Americas. The report favored drug decriminalization of marijuana, an initiative that Uruguayan legislators have been discussing for nearly a year.

“We don’t have any objections against this process moving forward,” Insulza said in reference to a marijuana legalization bill in Uruguay. “We don’t support it openly because we don’t have a mandate from [OAS] member countries, but that is the road that is being followed. The marijuana debate is now open and it’s going to lead to changes.”

Mújica, a former guerrilla fighter known for his humility and kindness, and the Broad Front, a coalition of left-wing parties of which Mújica is a member, are supporting this bill, which would allow Uruguayans over the age of 18 to buy up to 40 grams of weed per month from state-sanctioned distributors.

The legislation was first introduced in 2012 in order to fight drug consumption and drug trafficking. Last December, the government had the necessary votes to pass the bill, but President Mújica asked parliament not to vote in the legislation after a poll revealed that most Uruguayans did not favor the initiative. (“Don’t vote on a law because you have majority in parliament,” Mújica said back then. “Support has to come from the streets.”)

The president then charged the bill’s leading supporters with convincing Uruguayans of the importance of marijuana legalization. Since then, the vote has been delayed and legislators both in favor and against the initiative have tried to court public opinion through media appearances and op-eds in the nation’s most important newspapers.

The vote is now set for July 31, 2013.

According to Uruguayan newspaper El Observador, the Broad Front now has 49 of the 50 required votes for the bill to clear the Lower Chamber. The coalition is still striving to convince Darío Pérez, who has met with Mújica to discuss the matter. Other options include José Carlos Cardoso, a legislator from an opposition party who agrees with the policy but who is still unwilling to go against his political organization. [ABC News]

Uruguay is one of the more progressive South American countries, and it already boasts a rather “agriculture rich economy” with a ton of exports (bananas!), so it’s a logical country to climb to the forefront of marijuana reform. Whether or not it actually happens, only time will tell. In the mean time, the entire marijuana industry has nominated President Mujica as their candidate of choice for the United States’ 2016  presidential election.

I’m Home

I’m Home

And happy with it. The place looks enormous after my hospital room. The new TV has exceeded our expectations and we haven’t tried everything out yet nor ran it with decent internet connectivity (which will have to wait). We did blow up the XBox power supply owing to it only running on 110V-120V. £10 dropped on Amazon and a UK power supply will be with us on Monday.

So I have a few days back home. On Thursday I go back to hospital and may stay for a while. I have some more treatment planned plus blood tests. I see three ways forward. 1) Blood tests show worrying signs so I’m kept in. 2) Blood tests show things are ok for now but more rest need. I come back home for a bit. 3) Blood tests so good they keep me in for round 2. I’m guessing it’s going to be 2). Mind you, it’s not like I’m not having treatment as I’m still being treated with multiple drugs including chemo. We have half the pharmacy at home for morning and evening doses of drugs. Helen is very good at looking after me in these circumstances.

General health position can only be described as good. Without very recent intervention my blood counts this morning were the best we’ve seen post-illness. I believe this means my body has the strength to recover and is doing so. I remain keen to get back into full chemo and see how I fare on another aggressive full round.

All Roads Point Home

Everything is now geared for my return home late afternoon. The drug schedule is running another 30 mins early so we could be away by 5pm. We have had a vaste bag of drugs given to take at home and walked through their application. The staff here are all excited I’m going home and pleased I have done so well recovering from the round 1 complications. The more I hear from people the more I learn they felt the situation then was quite dire. I’ll be looking in the mirror for a return of Mr Yellow Man diligently.

Thursday I am back for at least a day visit. I am booked in to stay indefinitely again but could be sent home again that day. We’ll see on the day.

As a complete aside I ran into a good bio for Professor Linch. Tells us where he is professionally.

John’s here now visiting so I’ll say more later. From home I hope.
