woman in street

Whether it is by pending court challenge, legislative change, or religious ruling, the impetus behind medical cannabis reform is cresting in Indonesia—and the campaign is being spearheaded by mothers.

Moms for medical cannabis reform is a powerful political and legal concept. Such campaigns have managed to change cannabis laws all over the world—from the United States and the U.K. to Israel and now, apparently, Indonesia.

Bill Clinton

A study on the effectiveness of CBD as a potential pain reliever has gotten the attention of former President Bill Clinton.

The clinical trial, conducted by researchers at the NYU Langone Health and Baptist Health/Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute, found that an orally absorbed tablet containing cannabidiol (CBD) “safely managed pain after minimally invasive rotator cuff surgery, and did not produce side effects sometimes associated with CBD use, such as nausea, anxiety, and liver toxicity.”

woman being massaged

When mindbodygreen was first developing its line of vitamins and supplements, we knew we wanted to include a product that could tackle one of today's most common barriers to health and well-being: stress. After many iterations, we landed on calm+: a thoughtful blend of full-spectrum hemp oil with CBD, ashwagandha, and lavender oil designed to ease everyday anxiousness and foster a positive mood.*

At this point, you might be thinking, "There are so many supplements for stress relief out there these days. Why is this one different?" Here's a quick overview of what makes calm+ stand out from the rest of the pack:

Medicinal cannabis sector deserves celebration not criticism

woman

 

The latest Ministry of Health data on medicinal cannabis uptake paints a positive picture. This comes despite ongoing criticism on the availability of local products, price, and doctors’ willingness to prescribe.

Yes, challenges around access continue, but New Zealand’s newest industry is making good strides. Let’s not forget Parliament only legislated to enable a local medicinal cannabis industry three and a half years ago. The Medicinal Cannabis Scheme has been in effect for just over two years, or less than a year, if you take into consideration the transition period.

When will the price for medical marijuana go down in Ohio?

medical cannabis

Within a minute of one another are two Cincinnati medical marijuana dispensaries — Sunnyside (formerly Verdant Creations) at 5149 Kennedy Avenue, and Verilife, at 5431 Ridge.

When interviewed in 2019 by WVXU, Verilife customers had high hopes prices would come down since an increasing number of dispensaries were popping up in Southwest Ohio.

It’s unclear if they’ve seen much of a decrease in price, and plenty of people are still driving to surrounding states where it’s cheaper. But that might be changing.

The city of Monroe will have four dispensaries after recently being awarded three more provisional licenses.

The Journal News reports two of the provisional licenses in Monroe were granted to Shangri-La Dispensary Ohio and one to Deaver Ohio.

cannabis testing

Further testing on pesticides used to cultivate marijuana is one way to ensure all the consumers are safe from harmful chemicals.

As Rhode Island gears up for its recreational sales debut this December, it now requires all of its cannabis pass pesticide testing. This process is common, as nearly all legal states have some form of pesticide testing in place. With cannabis being illegal on a federal level, however, one is left to question exactly how rigorous this testing is.

Should cannabis products come with mental health warnings?

smoking joints

I think that cannabis products, particularly those with over 10mg of THC, should indeed have warning labels — the same way that we regulate tobacco products. Here’s why.

Over the last few years, high THC cannabis has caught the attention of medical  professionals and parents alike, but not in a good way. There has been an increased incidence of schizophrenia and psychosis cases attributed to consuming high THC cannabis, particularly among the youth.

woman

A study funded by Quantified Citizen, co-authored by Paul Stamets, proves that psilocybin treatment can help boost mood and mental health.

A study published in Scientific Reports on June 30 has presented evidence that psilocybin mushrooms have a noticeable effect on the mood and mental health of participants.

The study, called “Psilocybin microdosers demonstrate greater observed improvements in mood and mental health at one month relative to non-microdosing controls,” analyzed 1,133 subjects between November 2019 to May 2021. Baseline assessment was conducted at the beginning of the study, and then again between 22-35 days later.

Countless people already benefit from using cannabis before, after, and even during their workouts. The key is finding the right dosage that works for your unique needs and athletic lifestyle.
