MEDICAL MARIJUANA:

SCIENTIFIC MECHANISMS AND CLINICAL INDICATIONS

David Bearman, MD

ABSTRACT

Finally in the early 21st century, medicinal cannabis is being rediscovered by physicians

and patients alike. This paper discusses the current state of medicinal marijuana in the U.S. We’ll

look at contemporary medicinal use in the context of the 5000-year history of the therapeutic use

of cannabis. This includes cannabis use in ancient times, in patent medicines, its use in the early

20th century, and assess the modern medicinal cannabis research that started in 1949. The

paper will cover the current legal status of medicinal cannabis, recent research, the role of the

FDA, physician practice standards, medical indications, and mechanisms of action.

INTRODUCTION

We stand at the dawn of a new era for medicinal cannabis. Since 1964, when Dr.

Raphael Mechulam, of Jerusalem University, isolated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) we have

learned more about the marvels of the brain’s neurochemistry. There has developed a greater

understanding of the role of serotonin in depression and we have had the discovery of

endorphins, the naturally-occurring opiates, and the endocannabinoid system. In 1992, Professor

Mechulam described the endocannabinoid system. He characterized the endogenous

cannabinoid receptors and the endogenous cannabinoids that bind to these receptors.

We have crossed the threshold into exciting cannabis-related treatments for many

conditions and symptoms. Cannabis gives relief from chronic pain which arises from a myriad of

pain-producing illnesses; cannabis provides both analgesia and anti-inflammatory relief for

autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, complex sympathetic dystrophy,

and restless leg syndrome; and assists many with mental health problems, including attention

deficit disorder (ADD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and obsessive

compulsive disorder (OCD) – to name but a few conditions which have been shown to benefit

from cannabis and cannabinods.

My name is Tracy Dixon, All thanks goes to Doctor SHEKIRI for saving my marriage from toning apart. I feel so grateful and only have good words about a powerful spell caster named Doctor SHEKIRI who helped me bring back my husband. We had been apart for 2 years, at first I was thinking if I was doing the right thing by contacting a spell caster, but I so much love my husband and won't give him up for anything in this world. I decided to contact Doctor SHEKIRI through his mail address I found on several testifiers messages online,and I told him about my situation, he laughed and told me my husband will be back to me in the next 48 hours. I felt it wasn't going to happen at first until my husband called me and was so eager to have me back more than anything on earth.. Now we are together and he can't do without me and both of us are happy. I feel so happy sharing this testimony because there was no negative act attached to his work. His work was smooth and fast. Thanks to Doctor SHEKIRI for bringing back happiness to my life. I swear with my life that Doctor SHEKIRI is a man to trust and take your problems to. You can contact him on his e-mail if you really truly want your love back. Email: doctorshekiri@outlook.com TEL: +2348058260257)

rip off scam-cannamedsdispensary.net

This is crazy, they ripped me off for $2,200.
They claim to sell marijuana online with no card, I should of known when they wouldn't accept credit cards they advertise, and wouldn't take calls.
They just took my money, and never shipped, and when I called back, they wouldn't answer.
Yup, its a really big scam, and I was so pissed I called FBI, so be careful.

An amazing testimony on how to get lost love back
Reply #24 on : Thu May 14, 2015, 10:05:19
An amazing testimony on how to get lost love back even if you made some mistakes and i recommend this to everyone because am happy today, My name is Elizabeth Williams and I'm from UK, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {8}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/} and you can also reach Dr Brave through his mobile number +2348072370762,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. { bravespellcaster@gmail.com }, Thanks..
