420 with CNW – Federally Funded Journal Reveals How Prohibition is Endangering Marijuana Consumers

It is ironical that federal dollars were used to publish a journal report which blames the federal prohibition of marijuana for putting cannabis consumers at risk since there is no federal guidance on the safety standards that the industry should adhere to.

Environmental Health Perspectives, an open access journal whose work is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health, published this damning report in its..

The range of CBD products is constantly growing. Currently, it includes oils, creams, supplements, analgesics, beverages, edibles and various others. CBD can also be inhaled to deliver anti-depression benefits, anti-inflammatory effects, pain relief and relief from the symptoms of neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

CannabisNewsBreaks – MustGrow Biologics Corp. (CSE: MGRO) Developing Natural Biopesticide Products to Ensure Compliant, Pest-Free Cannabis Production

Agricultural biotech company MustGrow Biologics (CSE: MGRO) is engaged in the development and commercialization of a portfolio of natural biopesticides and biofertilizer products for the cannabis industry. A recent article discussing the company reads, “Canada’s licensed producers (‘LPs’) are required by law to demonstrate that no unauthorized pesticides were used on their products or contaminated them (http://cnw.fm/QFu7L), and mandatory testing is underway to ensure that LPs comply. Failure of Health Canada’s sampling and testing program for unauthorized pest control products could result in product seizure or destruction, recall of products sold, suspension or revocation of the firm’s license, or a monetary penalty of up to C$1 million, according to Health Canada. . . . Through MustGrow’s eventual suite of biostimulant/biofertilizer offerings, Canadian cannabis license holders may have access to products that aid in the production of compliant, pest-free cannabis. MustGrow’s science-based suite of signature products have already demonstrated control of many soil-borne diseases and pests that affect cannabis production, including Botrytis (grey mold), Pythium root rot, Rhizoctonia fungus, Fusarium, nematodes, Verticillium wilt, Phytophthora root rot and Sclerotinia. MustGrow’s products are recognized as safe and are EPA- and PRMA-approved for use on fruits and vegetables.”

MustGrow Biologics Corp. (CSE: MGRO) Building Suite of Natural Biologic Products for Cannabis and Other Industries

  • MustGrow Biologics is developing mustard-based pest control products that can be sold on an industrial scale to help cannabis, fruit & vegetable, turf & ornamental and tobacco producers
  • MustGrow’s non-synthetic focus on alternatives to chemical pesticides grants it a position of responsibility during an era when pesticide poisoning reports are increasing
  • The company is turning its attention to the needs of the tobacco industry and the burgeoning cannabis industry in Canada

The ever pressing need to make produce available to people rather than the insects that prowl gardens and agricultural fields has led to the development of a wide array of pesticides since ancient times. Sacred Hindu text the Rigveda from about 4,000 years ago mentions the use of poisonous plants for pest control, for example (http://cnw.fm/1c9RG). However, chemical pesticides have caused alarm in modern times because of their association with illnesses that may afflict agricultural workers (http://cnw.fm/Jcwd2), unborn children (http://cnw.fm/KxFA7), beneficial insects (http://cnw.fm/NkQp6) and food consumers on an international scale (http://cnw.fm/IPjb7).

420 with CNW – Thai State Hospitals Start Distributing Marijuana Oils

Thai state hospitals have stocked up on cannabis oils and are ready to start dispensing them to patients, according to a press release by Anutin Chanvirakul, the Public Health Minister who also doubles as the Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand.

Chanvirakul revealed that Thai state hospitals received a total of 4,500 bottles of marijuana extracts starting on August 7 as a result of the law which was passed in December to make medical cannabis legal in the Asian country.

Under this new law, the government will be responsible for regulating the production, processing and sale of medical marijuana products. Companies will have to apply and be granted licenses before they engage in any activity connected to this new medical marijuana industry.

The Government Pharmaceutical Organization (GPO), an agency run by the Thai government, will work with other state agencies to avail a total of 200,000 bottles of marijuana oil on a monthly basis starting in the month of September. To meet this requirement, the GPO intends to start growing marijuana in greenhouses next year so that supply shortages don’t jeopardize the implementation of the medical marijuana program.

The marijuana oils being stockpiled in state-run hospitals will be given out free of charge to the qualifying patients who are enrolled in the state’s universal health care scheme (the Gold Card) or any of the other health insurance schemes available in the country.

Thai doctors will first diagnose each patient and then recommend the particular cannabis oil formulation that is best suited to help that patient. Based on this prescription, the hospital pharmacy will dispense the oil to be used by the patient.

The addition of medical marijuana to Thai law is widely seen as a boost to the agricultural sector of the country since its favorable conditions can position Thailand as a leader in marijuana production in the region and internationally.

Prohibition Partners, a marijuana research company, estimates that the marijuana industry in Thailand could be worth at least $661 million by 2024.

However, this potential can only be turned into reality when marijuana cultivation and processing is ramped up quickly enough to meet the expected high demand among patients in the country with a 300-year history of using marijuana as a medicine before the drug was outlawed in the 1930s.

The country hopes to develop its own cannabis strains that will compete favorably on the world marijuana market. Laos, Malaysia and the Philippines are currently considering to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Experts welcome the bold step taken by this Asian country to embrace medical marijuana and they believe that industry participants like VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTCQX: VVCIF) and VPR Brands LP (OTCQB: VPRB) may be thrilled that the Asian medical marijuana market could soon open up.

420 with CNW – Study Finds Cannabis Flower Tops Other Cannabis Products in Providing Pain Relief

A study whose findings were published towards the end of July has found that dried marijuana flower provides the highest level of pain relief when compared to other marijuana products. This conclusion was made after analyzing the data collected by an app which allows medical marijuana users to track the effects of the different medical marijuana products and dosage for different health conditions.

The New Mexico University researchers wrote that higher THC concentrations in marijuana flower and other cannabis products were associated with better pain relief outcomes among the patients who used the Releaf App to track their medical cannabis usage.

In contrast, CBD showed pain relief effects only up to a certain level, while the additional concentration was associated with no additional benefit yet gastrointestinal complaints increased among the patients who used products with higher concentrations of CBD. This is in line with research that shows the benefits of CBD start leveling off when patients consume higher doses of the compound.

Overall, the study looked at 20,513 sessions of marijuana use logged in the app by 2,987 patients for more than two years (June 6, 2016 to October 24, 2018). 95 percent of all the patients reported marked relief from pain and the average reduction was 3.1 points on a self-reported pain scale ranging from 0-10. The starting level of pain was an average of 5.87 and this average dropped to 2.77 after the patients had used marijuana for their pain.

Another highlight of this study was that cannabis concentrates were linked to more side effects than dried cannabis flower. The researchers suspect that those negative side effects could have been caused by the residues of the solvents used to extract the concentrates, or because other cannabis compounds, such as terpenes and flavonoids, are lost during the extraction process.

The research also revealed that marijuana products which were hybrids of sativa and indica marijuana strains exhibited better pain management when compared to those that were either purely indica or purely sativa in nature.

It was also noted that the patients who said that they had pain in the stomach or gastrointestinal system benefited most from products with lower concentrations of THC than from products high in THC.

Interestingly, the patients who used marijuana tinctures, pills and edibles reported less relief from pain when compared to those who used cannabis concentrates, dried flower and topical products.

This research done on a large population of medical marijuana users provides some of the best proof so far available regarding the role of THC in pain management. Industry watchers are eager to see how different entities like Therma Bright Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) and TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FRA: TH8) will make use of these research findings in their products.
