[Canniseur: Medical doctors tend to stick their heads in the sand and not keep current on many of today's current medical affairs. They tend to be stay with old and outdated modalities (good fats, sugar feeding cancers, probiotics & prebiotics, etc). It's great that...read more
[Canniseur: If true, this is good news indeed for those who have traumatic brain injuries. If there is a correlation with CTE as well, the news becomes fantastic. In spite of the Federal ban on cannabis research, we're beginning to see lots of new research and ideas.]...read more
Below is an abstract from the most important AIDS conference in the US. It's a bit scientific, but important reading. The whole paper was presented at the recent HIV conference in Seattle at the beginning of March. The Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) is a difficult issue in...read more

Ed. Note: Why would anyone trade a drug that works and costs about $200 per month for one they don't know and costs almost $3000 per month. The logic escapes us. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June approved a cannabis-derived drug to treat severe seizures...read more
Ed. Note: This is a start. We firmly believe that science based research and knowledge based on science, not emotion. This is a terrific start.
World-class scientists, researchers and physicians will gather at the University of Michigan to discuss cannabis and “separate fact from fiction.”
Ed. Note: This is kind of a duh. But there are a few misrepresentations and other issues with this article. CBD is not an antagonist of THC is the first one. THC in cannabis does not cause or make psychosis worse. That’s a fallacy and a perception that ‘high’ is a bad thing. It is not. It is bad to some people, but not everyone. Bias in science writing is not a good thing. Good science writing calls for a very even handed view of the facts and not an inserted bias that this reporter is doing. Sorry Alexandra.

A recent study published by a team of researchers from Lancaster University and The University of Lisbon indicates long-term cannabis use could result in damage to the human brain. We’re not sure how they managed to come to that conclusion however, because the study...read more
