Cannabis Science – CBD & Epilepsy
Today in our science segment, we talk about CBD’s effect on Epilepsy. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and it affects people of all ages. Abnormal electrical activities in the brain result in a sensory disturbance. This disturbance inevitably ends in seizures. It is usually diagnosed after a person has had at least two seizures that were not caused by another known medical condition.
Nearly one in three people who suffer from Epilepsy are classified as having drug-resistant Epilepsy. However, CBD use may help! Fortunately, new studies indicate that CBD usage can result in a decrease in seizure frequency. Additionally, there are no adverse effects of using CBD. But that’s not all. CBD use has shown to heal some adverse effects caused by traditional medicines used to treat Epilepsy. Finally, if a patient must continue taking Rx medications, CBD may reduce the dosage or frequency in which such meds are consumed. This is great news for producers of CBD like Experience Premium Cannabis in Las Vegas.
Hash It Out! – Interview With John Hudak (Part 2 of 2)
Today we continue our conversation with John Hudak. Over the years, public views of cannabis use have continued to change. At the start of the new millennium, support for cannabis law reform hovered in the low 30% of public approval. Now, nearly 88% of the public say they support some kind of cannabis law reform. In fact, cannabis law reform is one of the most universally accepted movements in the country. Support crosses gender, age, and political party lines. The shift in views on cannabis use and the increase in approval rating continues to grow as more and more states successfully implement policy.
However, one of the initial topics which were not addressed was racial injustice related to past failed drug policy. John Hudak believes this was an initial failure. Some states got it better than others, but none have gotten it completely right. On the other hand, John doesn’t recommend throwing the baby out with the bathwater. After all, that’s not how good public policy works… most of the time.
Nugs of Knowledge
This week, we discuss dabbing 101. Ah, dabbing… the flash vaporizing of cannabis concentrates. There are a variety of tools you can use to dab. Frequently, the apparatus used to dab is called a rig. This helps to vaporize cannabis. Wax, rosin, oils, and more are used in dab rigs.
Dab rigs have an element called a nail. The nail is heated up with a torch and then a tiny bit of cannabis concentrate is added to the nail. Usually, a very small crumb-sized dab is used in the rig. Upon vaporization, you inhale the smoke. This is not for low-dose users. Dabbing is one of the most efficient ways to consume large concentrations of cannabis in a short amount of time.
Leafly has a helpful guide to dabbing. If you’d like to learn more about dabbing, please check out this link for more information.
