North American research teams to study marijuana’s pain killing abilities

The current classification of marijuana in the United States has made it difficult for research to be done on its medicinal benefits, but this is changing as more states and countries move toward legalization. A research team led by Dr. Jeffrey Chen at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) will conduct an in-depth review of cannabis’ ability to treat pain.

“The public consumption of cannabis has already far outpaced our scientific understanding,” said Dr. Chen. “We really desperately need to catch up.”

The program was designed by Edythe London, a UCLA professor of psychiatry and pharmacology and will look specifically at patients who use opioid painkillers such as oxycodone or Vicodone for pain relief.

New Zealand awards first-ever medical cannabis growing license

Hikurangi Cannabis crowdfunded $1.8 million in small investments from 1,500 local residents who hope to benefit from the cannabis industry.

The island nation of New Zealand has never taken a very kind approach to marijuana, as evidenced by the military-supported drug raids New Zealand law enforcement agencies conduct every year over the country’s vast hinterlands. Under the 1975 Misuse of Drugs Act, possessing any amount of cannabis for any reason is illegal. There have been attempts to decriminalize it and even efforts to legalize medical marijuana. But all have failed to end the blanket prohibition on New Zealand weed.

Australia 'missing out' on nutraceutical cannabis extract market due to current federal laws

Key players in the emerging industrial hemp business say Australia is missing a golden opportunity to develop a nutraceuticals industry based on the non-psychoactive ingredients in the cannabis plant.

New research suggests that so-called cannabidiols or CBDs are found in plants grown for fibre or seed grain and they can treat a wide range of medical problems including serious forms of epilepsy.

But under Australian law, growers cannot harvest this material unless they are licensed by the Federal Office for Drug Control under strict security conditions.

Last January Health Minister Greg Hunt gave the green light for a medical cannabis industry in Australia.
