How essential oils enhance marijuana's entourage effect

The Western, reductionist approach to medicine often overlooks the holistic aspects of good health: Meaning that, for example, while exercise and a healthy diet each offer their own benefits, the combination of both is greater than the sum of the individual parts, writes Sarah Ratliff

This analogy applies to cannabis, too, and the relationship between cannabinoids (the plant's active compounds) and terpenes (aromatic compounds that give plants their flavor and smell).

Marijuana may boost risky effects of drinking alcohol

As the legalization of medical marijuana and marijuana use are both on the rise in the United States, people are not necessarily using alcohol less and may be unaware of the risks of combining alcohol and marijuana, according to researchers.

A new study from Penn State found that compared to people who only drank alcohol, those who used alcohol and marijuana simultaneously were more likely to drink heavier and more often. They were also more likely to experience alcohol-related problems -- like impulsive actions they later regretted.

How long does THC stay in your system?

THC is detectable for only a relatively short period, but how long does marijuana stay in your system? THC’s metabolites can stay around in the body for much longer than the duration of effects. In some cases, evidence of marijuana use can be detected for weeks, months, and even years, depending on the tests being used. In this article, we’ll explore exactly how long marijuana or “weed” can stay in your system and how long THC can be detected by drug tests.

While the euphoric effects of THC can fade rather quickly, lasting just a few hours when inhaled, the compound and its metabolites can stay in your system for weeks after consumption, in some cases even longer, putting you at risk to fail a drug test.

Cannabis could be the secret to anti-ageing

The use of cannabis in skincare is stepping up a notch.

Australian medicinal marijuana company Bod Australia has released findings of its research partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), which could see an anti-aging skin cream developed that incorporates cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive chemical compound within cannabis.

Under the research collaboration — which was been underway for the last three years — scientists discovered a family of proteins in human cells that act as anti-ageing agents. Now Bod and UTS are exploring the combination of those proteins with CBD in topical anti-ageing skin creams.

Michigan is experiencing a medical marijuana drought

Marijuana users have often been plagued by the August drought: those dog days of late summer that fall between harvests in Mexico or somewhere when there was simply no weed available, when you went down your list of dealers and struck out on every one with a "call me back in a week or two" response.

Yes, you can you be allergic to weed

 

If you’ve recently tried weed for the first time expecting medicinal relief but instead found yourself swelling, sneezing, or rubbing itchy eyes, you may have a weed allergy. 

 

 

Symptoms

The symptoms of a cannabis allergy are similar to the seasonal allergies and include the following: 

  • runny nose 
  • sneezing 
  • itching 
  • swelling
  • watery eyes
  • rashes
  • hives 

In severe cases, anaphylaxis can develop. This acute allergic response to cannabis most typically occurs after the ingestion of hemp seeds. So what exactly is anaphylaxis? It can result in swelling of the throat, difficulty breathing, and passing out.
