  6. Welcome to this new Medical sections, We hope to bring a lot of interesting information on the medical strains of Cannabis and their properties. This is a very complex work, there are thousands of varieties with medicinal benefits. Therefore, we hope that you too can collaborate, providing the information that you think interesting for the community. Together, we can create a fantastic base data for that people with medical needs, can consult. www.GHMedical.com Room Use: Create a new thread and expose its medicinal strain. All information or images that you can provide, is great. You can also support or provide more information to an existing strain.
  7. Just saw ABC, I reckon it would be cool as something different! Plus I was reading about it being high in CBD and other cannabinoids with medicinal properties.
  8. Hi, i'm from Uruguay. I suffer from chronic back pain, pills make go lazy and i need to sleep A LOT apart from other secondary effects like headaches and vomits. So I started to use marijuana and my pain level reduced. But here in Uruguay marijuana is illegal and street marijuana is mix with chemicals and it's not natural and doesn't have a medical effect. I can't grow, so i can't use this wonderful medicine. Next year i'm planning to go to a country that i can ask for a serious marijuana medical treatment because my pain level is growing. So where can i go?

  10. I found this article and thought it worth sharing. I think it provides another stream of hope for overall fight for proper cannabis laws globally............................................................................................................. "Evidence mounts as a growing number of papers published in scientific journals are establishing that cannabinoids have anti-tumor effects on the cellular level and in animals. Increasing numbers of people have been using Cannabis “oil” —plant extracts consisting of 50% or more THC and/or CBD— to treat conditions ranging from mild rashes to potentially fatal cancers. Reports of success are circulating among medical Cannabis users and on the internet. They gain plausibility from a parallel stream of papers published in scientific journals establishing that cannabinoids have anti-tumor effects on the cellular level and in animals. The anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids were a recurring theme at this year’s meeting of the International Cannabinoid Research Society, and also in a course for physicians presented Oct. 24, 2012, at the University of California San Francisco. One speaker, Jeffrey Hergenrather, MD, described a particularly dramatic case seen by a San Diego colleague: a 90% reduction in the size of an infant’s brain tumor achieved over the course of a year by parents applying hemp oil to the baby’s pacifier before naptime and bedtime. Aptly dubbed “MMJ13001A” on the UCSF website, the half-day course on cannabinoid medicine included talks by three researchers whose findings about cannabis and cancer have been under-reported, to put it mildly: Stephen Sidney, MD, director of research for Kaiser-Permanente in Northern California; UCLA pulmonologist Donald Tashkin, MD; and Donald Abrams, MD, Chief of Hematology-Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital. Some 60 doctors received continuing medical education credits for attending the half-day course at UCSF’s Laurel Heights auditorium, which was organized by the Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids, with help from Abrams and the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, and reprised the next day in Santa Monica (MMJ13001B). A very interested auditor at the UCSF session, Michelle Aldrich, had used cannabis oil as a treatment for lung cancer. Donald Abrams, who consulted on Aldrich's case, says, “The fact that Michelle didn’t have cancer that could be located [after using the oil] is a bit unusual in someone who started treatment with an advanced stage. I don’t usually see that in my patients. Did the cannabis oil make a difference? We don’t know because we don’t have a controlled study.” Abrams has met with a UCSF neurooncologist “to discuss whether or not we should do a clinical trial adding oil to chemo for patients with glioblastoma [a brain tumor that is usually fast-moving and fatal]. Manuel Guzman’s studies have shown that cannabinoids have great potential in treating brain tumors.” Undoubtedly Dr. Mahmoud ElSohly, who grows marijuana for the National Institute on Drug Abuse, can produce a uniform, highly concentrated extract for research purposes. But whether or not NIDA will let Abrams have some is uncertain. Abrams has jumped through bureaucratic hoops before. He has obtained all the necessary approvals and funding to conduct clinical trials involving cannabis, and published his findings in peer-reviewed journals. Because chemotherapy has a measurable benefit, he says, “There’s no way we could get approval for a study that evaluates cannabis oil as a cure for brain tumors without giving patients temolozide [the standard treatment for glioma].” “A ‘cure’ in cancer means five years of disease-free survival,” Abrams reminds us. So what Abrams has in mind is “a study of the pharmacokinetic interaction between cannabis oil and temolozide.” Participants would be patients undergoing treatment for glioblastoma. Researchers would measure the level of temolozide in their blood before and after adding cannabis oil to their regimen. The primary objective would be to establish safety —to confirm that large cannabinoid infusions do not interfere with the body’s ability to process temolozide. Another objective would be to document examples of cannabis oil expediting or promoting tumor reduction. Such a ‘signal’ might justify a trial of cannabis oil on its own. Abrams does not want to promote false hope. “I do integrative oncology,” he says, “so I hear about ‘miracle cures’ all the time. I hear about about noni juice and graviola and many products. What’s disturbing is to hear people talking about cannabis oil as a ‘cure,’ because a cure in cancer means five years of disease-free survival and people have not been using cannabis oil for five years. “I think it does a disservice to the cannabis community to make claims that are not supportable. I may be seen as a nay-sayer but I’m not. I say ‘Let’s study it.’”
  11. Time Magazine on "How Cannabinoids May Slow Brain Aging" by David Downs Time Magazine‘s Maia Szalavitz does good work Monday with a piece reviewing some clinical evidence on cannabinoids – the molecules in marijuana – and aging. The brain’s own cannabinoid system is responsible for stopping inflammation, and “a sort of anti-oxidant cleanse, removing damaged cells and improving the efficiency of the mitochrondria, the energy source that powers cells, ultimately leading to a more robustly functioning brain.” Stimulating it with cannabinoids increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor which protects brain cells and promotes neuron growth, and – bucking the stereotype – maintains normal cognitive function in old age. But politics keeps scientists from exploring pot for cures to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, researchers say. Gary Wenk, professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University wrote: “In my experience, working in this area is like touching the third rail. … I get hate and love mails that are bizarre and phone messages from people too high to talk. Some of my colleagues have left the area after seeing their names in the National Enquirer… I do not blame a war on marijuana but rather the public’s prejudice and extreme bias. I’ve now discontinued my research on this system.” “He and others in the field are not completely pessimistic, however,” Szalavitz writes. “He says, ‘I’ve been trying to find a drug that will reduce brain inflammation and restore cognitive function in rats for over 25 years; cannabinoids are the first and only class of drugs that have ever been effective. I think that the perception about this drug is changing and in the future people will be less fearful.’” copied and pasted from - http://blog.sfgate.com/smellthetruth/2012/10/30/time-magazine-on-how-cannabinoids-may-slow-brain-aging/ Peace Lams
  12. Here we go guys.... finally, and out of the blue, a new LIVE THREAD begins. Arjan, Olaf and myself arrived in Canada with a KLM flight 12 hours ago. We met on the early hours of wednesday at Schiphol Airport, got some breakfast and boarded the plane. The almost 8 hours daytime flight went smooth, with no delays. But by the time we landed I was craving a smoke. Real bad. Lucky for us clearing customs was fast and easy, and in no time we were in a taxi direction downtown Toronto. The sky deep blue, full sun, and a mild temperature around 24 degrees made our adjusting to the jetlag a lot easier. After checking in and leaving our stuff in our rooms we went for a triple-A Alberta beef burger, really tasty, and then we grabbed a cab to go to the recently opened but already famous Vape On The Lake, the first official Vapor-Lounge in Canada. Our friend Marco Renda, organizer of the Treating Yourself Expo, welcomed us in the Vapor-Lounge with plenty of drinks and of course plenty of local high-grade strains brought by licensed medical growers. Canada is known for the quality of its bud, but here we are talking prime-time weed. Top of the game. In no-time we are stoned, and the airplane ride seems really far away already. Things get hazy from there on. It's now past 11pm local time, and past 5am tomorrow morning for my biological-stoned clock, so I figure I'll upload some pics and pass out. I am loving Canada. Every minute of it, and every toke. Tomorrow it's time to build the stand for the expo. PS: sorry for the poor quality of the pics. I am NOT MrX. It's clear, I should stick to the plants. LOL PPSS: all pics made with iPhone
  13. Hello everyone, I am considering setting up in the Medical Marijuana business and was wondering what information you good people can give on the best countries, laws, permits, licenses etc. I am able to go pretty much anywhere in the world but Europe is preferable, as I'm not so sure putting on an Immigration Form "Cannabis Grower" will go down to well with the Authorities of some countries. I know there's lots of information about what's going on in California and other places but I'm not sure I'd get into the USA. How easy it to get into Canada where they are also quite liberal. Thank you, Toaor
  14. HELLO all, I seek the oportunity to grow and try MMJ for pain relief of trigeminal neuralgia. My questions on main website were not allowed because of all kinds of ignorant issues in USA. I was asked to post here for the possibility of better results. Help stop the pain http://www.fpa-support.org/ Message Subject: Trigeminal neuralgia patient starting MMJ inquiry Body: Hello, i was accidently hit in face with baseball bat on elementery schoolyard. Gives me trigeminal neuraliga. 30+ years traveling for pain relief, horrors of presciptions tried and doctors tortured me over years and since 2001 went to Denpasar, Kuta, Bali, Signapore, Hong Kong etc in search of pain relief from TN blinding pain. Massachusetts USA is set to make legal Medical maiuana in Nov 2012 and patient cards in 2013. With my pain increasing each day, I purchased a farm in MA 6 years ago in hopes to be prepared for legalization and has a 100' X 40' commercial greenhouse and land. I seach to find out how your marketing department works with new customer who will be using legal methods to provide medical cannibus for pain relief? And myself to try the strains seeking pain relief like I experienced in other countries that my 65 american doctors failed ot provide. Is it possible to start now to work with your empire to provide our hopefully new legal medical program with your samples packs and your incredable knowledge? Thank you

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
