- Medical Marijuana for Seniors
Seniors, the fastest growing demographic among medical marijuana patients, are discovering that cannabis is helpful for treating degenerative, age-related conditions -- Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, heart disease, diabetes, sleep disorders, stroke, and more. Scientific research validates anecdotal reports that cannabis can do wonders for the aging brain.
- Cannabis and Epilepsy
Marijuana has a rich history as a medicine for quelling seizures and convulsions going back hundreds of years. In the mid-19th century, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as a treatment for pediatric epilepsy, and subsequent scientific studies have documented the anticonvulsant effects of CBD, THC, and whole plant cannabis.
- Smoke Signals: A Cannabis History Primer—From Prohibition to Legalization
A discussion of why the U.S. government banned “the evil weed” during the Great Depression and how a decades-old grassroots countercultural movement for marijuana legalization evolved into today’s widespread populist revolt against conventional medicine and extra-constitutional authority.
