Arno Hazekamp PhD on Confronting the Unknown in Holland's Medical Cannabis Program

"So of course in the medical system you'll never promote smoking but then what while make tea or vaporize. It's what do we know about t. What do we know about pricing. Nothing but it's better than smoking. Right so i said no. Not if you're drinking disgusting green water with no active ingredients. Just wasting your expensive medicine. Yeah that's true too. So i had to go completely to the basis so that means isolate my own standards because i couldn't order them. Quantify my own standards purifying one thing chromatography. The second thing is to quantify them and you cannot easily do that by weighing because they're sticky and syrupy so i had to develop an methods to quantify it with an internal standard. There was not a cannabinoid that we had our cannabinoid than i had to learn. How do they behave. What what kind of spectroscopic and chromatographic behavior do they have. So i had to summarize that. And then i had to move on to. What's actually different between the varieties that we're growing here in holland. Are they really that different or should be more different. Cbd wasn't even the question back then that came even later but then you move onto administration forms. How do you make optimal cannabis t in a reproducible. Way where it's not suddenly way too strong when you forget about the boiling water for five minutes because the phone rings. What if in those five minutes your tickets and times stronger than there's all kinds of patients around holland are suddenly fainting and falling off the stairs because they're super high right so and we knew none of those things vaporisers. What's a good vaporizer. What's not so good vaporize and how what you know no standards for anything. No quality checks for anything. If you could make a vaporizer bring it to the market. You just sold it right. It's not really that much difference now. But then those things renew and then we had no idea what kind of toxins or or crap. They were spitting out to candidates so my question was always. Keep it simple Stick to the things that real people need to know now. No no large studies just for your signs buddies but focus on what patients need to know today and try to set up the study and also writes the results down in in an article in situation. Everybody can understand including the patient. You're doing it for so i. I called a national geographic style. You can't you can't watered down to science so much that it's not actually true anymore. It just sounds easy at nice but it's not actually true because then you're misleading people and i think you know if you get data from people you have to give it back to them so I i was interacting with users and prescribers and patient organizations. Like what are you dealing with. What is your life. Look like once you get that jar with cannabis and you go home then what you know. Where do you get stuck. What do you want to know. And that's been a very fruitful approach to my To my phd thesis. Because then not only a bunch of scientists around the world but basically everybody in my sphere of influence from from physicians to to patients to politicians to to family members. They wanted to know out his his work. Because i can actually read this teases and know what it means so with that i reached my goal of not just as a molecular biology. Just doing very fun stuff in the lab but also have one leg in in the real world and be

"Today's the day we have to MD's coming on today to talk r I n d is Dr Patel. Her new book is out. It's called the oil solution. Treat chronic pain, anxiety, and som- Neha and more without the high. So this is a book that includes over forty recipes for edibles and wellness products and wonderful things that you can do right in your own kitchen. And so Dr Patel has been internationally recognized as an expert in the field of medical medical cannabis. She teaches her patients how to use oil to relieve their symptoms transform their health and live a better quality of life. And it is such a pleasure. Dr welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. I have to just ask you a question. I don't know if you heard the news story that. Melissa McCarthy has been using her stylist recommended CBD oil for her feet after all of the awards the awards shows her feet were really really killing her and her stylist said, well, we just have to start using CBD oil on your feet, and so she's been using CBD on her sheep. Well. It became a featured segment on one of the morning shows this week where all the experts that they interviewed. Including many of your colleagues with with all due respect that said there's no evidence. This is absolutely at field that we just don't know enough about we need to have more evidence. It may sound good. But I couldn't believe that a major network. I would even say that at this point in time about the Canada. Dial portion the CBD the non high version of this plant, and I'd love for you to comment on that. Yeah. I mean, look granted there there. There is an EPA thicken amount of evidence. At the fact of the matter is it better work expect when it comes to muscular pink. He'll for multiple hours at a time. The muck are gonna hurt and. Been shown very affected force back. Tippety specifically in patients who have multiple imagine just have severe the cramping gives that they experience. Yes. Something like that. It's not certainly affected for for some cramping that you have in your heat treated, thousands of patients at this point. And for me. Know that the evidence is very obvious that my patients have experienced I I have to tell you have after doing this show for over two years. Now, I absolutely agree with you. But I also think that there is evidence we have been studying this plant for a very long time. Other countries are leaders and pioneers, as you all know as you are as you know, Dr. In Spain leading pioneers, Israel. Oh my gosh. They the forerunners in Israel. They are truly the pioneers. So we do have some studies. We do have evidence. We do have clinical. This is not just take this. This is also it is a lot of it is anecdote, but the question becomes who. Do you trust with the information, and it's very confusing when? Information is put out there. That's not correct. Yep. I agree with you. And it's actually important because it's an onion regulated industry. So anybody can you out any crap out of their mouth, and you know, there there's no one to say that hey that wrong or there's no one out there to regulate what they're saying. Okay. You have to turn to have knowledge and experience in the field, right knowledge faith on on research and experience from actually tweeting people your particular condition, and with move particular symptom the other area where what's important to go to knowledgeable company is in the quality of the product. Obviously product that you're purchasing. Yes. Show that seventy percent. New product little does. Could be buying overpriced bottle of Oliver coconut oil, and and and and get no effect from it. But that's another area where you've, you know advocates swimming is willing to pay attention because it's not a regulated industry. Okay. That's the main thing to look for are the are the main way to look for that. Laboratory tests results laboratory should be done a third party lab. One sec lights and five state. Okay.

"Because we don't have all those answers. We do know is paddock metabolize. And so there is a lot of side chrome P four fifty involvement in some of the subsets specifically. But the short answer is we don't have full known causality between which medicines clearly those medicines that we do prescribe and have a little bit better understanding about I always am very cautious particularly anti-coagulants or neuropathy agents things that can get people in trouble pretty quickly. Again, I go back to as we talked about some of the certify -able indications it's challenging because many of these people have chronic health conditions, and they're on chronic medications the old mentality. Always hold true though, start low and go slow, and that's usually when I'm talking with my patients. Let's just take it day by day week. Bye week month by month. If we're going to make a dramatic change. Let's be very mindful of when we're going to do that. So it sounds like we have a treatment option that really needs a lot more study. It was more information than how to use this. Yes. I think at the end of the day, we have a long way to go even though this medicines been around again from Eleni we still have a lot more to understand is medical marijuana approved for medication use in most states. Now, I think we're up to about approval us from medical purposes in about thirty three states and the district of Columbia, and this raises several interesting questions in my mind because again, we get back to there's differences between each state, and that's a little bit of a challenge for for many patients because here we're very fortunate to see many patients from around the world, and that does present some different conversation pieces with them because I can't certify somebody for the California, but they can go see a physician their concert affi-, and some of the qualifications are a little bit differently to you know, I think at the end of the day, it behooves us as providers to make sure we're really do an adequate history and. Physical exam making sure we're documenting all aspects of the physical care that we provided for folks particular for pain care because that can be a chronic condition for many folks, and that we're very comprehensive or the evaluation and thoughtful process moving forward for those folks do we need to warn patients about traveling if they're prescribed marijuana in a state where it is approved and traveled to a state where it is not are the at risk of being arrested for carrying an illegal substance. Yes. Okay. Again, it because it is federally illegal the. Current legislation really has not delved into this too much, and again as the sort of colorful political climate we live in continues to change. There may be some different implications around this. It's not very cost effective for the federal government to park officials at every state line to bust people moving from state to state that being said, it's still is a federal fence. If you're take a controlled substance from one stage to another state, and so really I caution my patients, you know, if they're gonna trip out to California where they have a medical cannabis program. I say just be careful because even flying on an airplane. It's still that's federally employed agents, and that sort of federal space, so it can be a little touching go. But I caution my patients just be mindful of the travel aspects, whether you're going by car by boat by plane and Finally, I think I know the answer to this question. But I'm going to ask it anyway is medical marijuana covered by insurance. No, I didn't think so it's all out of pocket. And I again, I. Cautioned my patients it can be quite expensive. And that's really where that sort of. Dispensary patient relationship does come into play. I caution. My patients not to get too involved in things because it can get pretty expensive pretty quickly.

"Has he FDA gotten involved in this as an FDA approved product. So the short answer is no again because it is still one hundred percent federally illegal for use of this medicine. It is the FDA involved absolutely very tightly controlled medication. And as a result of that. Certainly, I think that's that's inhibited a little bit of our progress. Moving forward with better understanding the medicine particularly from. A study perspective because there's very tightly controlled regulations again, depending on the state. You are presented very unique situation. Many folks in the medical cannabis community, particularly researchers are really struggling into their UCI big academic centers, and in many states now there is a recreational as well as medicinal component to this. And so because the federal standards put forth on the medical cannabis research efforts the medical cannabis research world, you're you're limited very small quantities. And this is actually all grown out of university of Mississippi is the main place with the FDA has sort of allowed medical cannabis to be cultivated grown and then sent to the research facilities. The joke is sort of on us right now, because of course, in the recreational communities folks can go to these recreational dispensaries and by as much product as they want is there willing to fork over the cash, and so it becomes a little bit of a challenging environment right now. Typically when we're trying to study very pure patient populations. And better understand things. Well, when you think about candidates canvas as a medication and medications have potential adverse effects, what adverse effects could we potentially see with these of cannabis. Again, I think has any medicine you read, there's there's a lot of different various facts, the big ones, I think that are always concerning to me, certainly the hot topics right now are deduct dependence sort of addiction, we do know that exists, and we know that exists particularly from early use for folks in the teenage years that prevents the biggest risk factor for lifelong dependence. You know, many of these folks that were actually the largest growing portions of population that are start us. A medical cannabis therapy are folks in the older generations fifty sixty seventies. Their likelihood of dependences significantly lower overall when I talk about dependence. So the interesting points are there are there are medicines. If you will that we can go walk down the street and vice nicotine and L Kahal those have much higher rates of dependence than Merrill. Wanna at this level, which again is roughly about ten percent when you kind of look at the general population, whereas is higher boat twelve fourteen and nicotine up nearly fifteen. Fifteen percent or so so that's the biggest thing I think that patients are concerned about you usually beyond that, I say. There certainly some cardiopulmonary effects. You know, the big big concern, particularly higher THC products that can alter some the cardiovascular function in risk of myocardial infarction or heart attack is very real the other big thing is that we do know that there are psychological aspects in clearly precipitation of schizophrenia or psychotic breaks, very real for many, folks. Again, this isn't products with higher concentrations are higher doses of THC that sort of union Yang effective, the CBD to teach is also nice because that's where I feel like a lot of the evidence looks at trying to find that balance between those two CD is help to attenuate some of those negative effects that the THC does offer patients. And so I try to counts my patients to say when you're talking with the pharmacist ask about the balancing effect because when you start to get off the extremes, whether it's high THC or high CBD, that's usual, you'll precipitate a little bit more of the potential unknown side effects. But clearly guest retested effects is also big. Worry and other mental health concerns anxiety depression. We've also seen that go back just a little bit to what you mentioned a few minutes ago in the fact that some of the conditions that we have that could maybe benefit from cannabis. Do those existent children and our pediatric patients being prescribed this. And then their risk for dependence..

What to expect from the expanding cannabis industry in 2019

"Seventy five million adults canal legally by cannabis legal sales of illegal drug a forecast by some analysts to grow by forty percent twenty nine hundred and this provides opportunities for business to capitalize on the new laws to discuss all this. I'm joined by Natasha loader, economists health policy editor hundred tasha Hal, as I'm and so what can we expect in what I suppose. One might call the cannabis space in twenty nineteen twenty nineteen is going to be really the to watch because although the legalisation happened last year, the actual sort of business and of setting up the distribution networks and setting up shops, a sort of happening now, and it won't be until two thousand nineteen that lots of people will have full access to cannabis legal best is human read. This is going to put pressure on governments outside places where it's very legal to. Suit or at the very least to downgrade cannabis is illegal. What often happens is that, you know, people who were opposed were very very opposed to legalization cannabis. They've they've seen that you know, this guy didn't fall in when medical cannabis was legalized quite the contrary. It had a lot of benefits in fact states that have legalized medicinal use of cannabis of God. Low rates have opioid desperate example because people using them for chronic pain. And so yes, there's a lot of pressure to first of all to allow medical use from any kind of legalization because there are real medical benefits. And then kind of beyond that there is also often a pressure for two full adult use. But usually it comes from the sort of medical use. I and our people to be consuming canvas. Because presumably we'll see innovation there will people still be rolling their own cannabis cigarettes will they be buying industrial packs of cannabis joints. Will they be drinking cannabis beer sucking cannabis? Peppermint. This is the most fascinating aspect to this story to me is just the sort of array of products that are coming out. And of course, people are going to be smoking joints in the same way that they used to. But one of the interesting elements to this is the millennials don't really want to smoke as much as the Habsburg generation Simon. And so, yeah, they may be vaping cannabis fluid, but equally there's been this sort of flourishing growth of edibles the problem with itching cannabis is that it takes a long time to sort of kick in. And so when you eat it, he's very slow to come on. And you're like have I eaten enough and you eat some more on the next thing. You know, you're under the table for the next day hours. And so that kind of profile has led a couple of companies to sort of develop technology to encapsulate the kind of. And so you get I know flavor, which is great because you don't really want to taste. This doesn't taste very nice. And also so that it releases very quickly and then in the sort of profile of the hit. Get is much more like alcoholic comes on quite quickly. That's all happening. And then on top of that, you've got all sorts of exciting products like, you know, sensual lubricants and sprays. And I mean, all sorts of things you name it somebody sort of it. There's been that's why. I think we've reached our climax Sharon, I have no more questions to ask. Thank you so much for joyless. Thank you very much.

However, the government so-called representatives have decided they are gonna go ahead and try their hand at changing things a little bit. Or maybe a lot. According to the story here at NPR dot org in early October, a coalition of Republican lawmakers joined by doctors, some pro cannabis advocates and leaders in the Mormon church announced that regardless of whether the measure passed they would be drafting another version of the law shortly after the election. They said they would address concerns about public safety in their version. The Republican Utah house speaker said that the unintended consequences include keeping the drug out of the hands of children and opening the door to recreational pot like in neighboring Colorado in Nevada the new billion all the by the way, the revenue to the states in those, you know, those areas they're making a bunch of money off of this stuff.

Is CBD Legal? We Asked the DEA

"CBD's legal status is murky even though it doesn't get anyone stoned the US Drug Enforcement Administration. That's the DA classifies it as a schedule one controlled substance just like cannabis, according to DA spokesperson, Catherine Pfaff the. Agency doesn't distinguish between CBD extracted from a high THC cannabis plant of the sort grown to produce marijuana and CBD that comes from hemp a form of cannabis the contains only tiny amount of THC, the CD that's available in health food stores is of the hemp variety in April. The DA's position on CBD that it should be a schedule one substance because it is extracted from cannabis was upheld by a federal appeals court. But the judges also noted that farm legislation passed by congress in two thousand fourteen which allows states to experiment with hemp production could give CBD marketers illegal out, providing they can verify that CBD was produced from hemp grown in states that have legal hemp programs and in September, the DA did announce that exception for pedia pediatrics the FDA approved seizure medication containing CBD, which it classified as schedule five the category for medications with a low potential for abuse. That says that the DA would do the same thing for other CBD drugs that. Come up through the FDA pipeline that didn't change CBD's overall classification though, although CBD technically remains a controlled substance. The DA is not going out of its way to enforce that prohibition. And it's not targeting CBD users Pfaff explained, quote were more focused on major drug traffickers and the opioid crisis. That leaves CBD up to individual states whose laws vary. According to Justin struggle, political director and federal lobbyists for the national organization for the reformation of marijuana laws. CBD is definitely in the clear in the nine states. Plus the district of Columbia that of legalized cannabis use for adults and in the thirty one states that have legalized medical cannabis CBD's legal. If a person has an authorization him from a physician to other states, Indiana, and Kansas have passed laws legalizing CBD from hemp, even though they don't allow medical or recreational. Use of cannabis struggle says there have been very few instances of consumers actually facing criminal charges for purchasing. CBD derived from hemp. And meanwhile, the bright field group a market research firm predicts that CBD will be twenty two billion dollar industry by the year twenty twenty two.

"medical cannabis" Discussed on This Unmillennial Life

"So it doesn't have the lung damage because it burns at a lower temperature. So some people might choose to date, but most of my clients choose to do a gel camper tincture or sobbed. There are also transdermal patches for people. This is sometimes used with kids with Wattez them that it's a slow release because also cannabis has been used in autism treatment and seizures I think most people have heard of seizures and how cannabis can help with seizures Sanjay Gupta did a special on CNN. And he was not for medical cannabis at all, and he did some research and did this documentary. And now he supports it. If you recall at our conference in Chicago, he was the keynote speaker, and you mentioned medical marijuana three times. I was cheering in the audience. It was great. So he's a believer now because he saw what it can do with kids with these incredible seizures they were having you know, a hundred. And two hundred seizures a day some of them and they took the medical cannabis. And now they're down to one seizure a day to seizures week. It's pretty remarkable. There are certain conditions that it is absolutely remarkable with canvas can do it is amazing. And that's one of the reasons I wanted to have you on the podcast because you know, we certainly as unbe lineal and the generation of people, I think primarily listening to this podcast or are maybe at a stage where people listening to the podcast have certain chronic conditions that they're dealing with or they have much like what you describe with your father. They have aging parents that maybe they see that the current protocol treatment. It's being offered isn't providing the kind of relief that you wanna see for the people that you love, and I just in talking to you. My eyes were very much opened that, you know, the preconceived notion that medical marijuana. Was just a way for people to get a card to go into a store and buy plot in smoke. It is really a very short-sighted viewpoint. And that's not to say that's not happening. And again, I don't want to politicize this too much. But the reality is that's not the only thing that is happening. And there are all these possibilities out here for like, you said the maintenance Dion droppers under the tongue and all the individual medicinal uses that completely bypassed that whole scenario. And I just I think that gives a lot of people a lot of hope especially for people who have not been able to find good either remedies or treatment or just end of life care that they haven't been able to find anything that works for them within the current framework of the medical system. Absolutely. In one thing that I want to mention his some people have said to me, oh, I had a bad experience which oftentimes that's with an edible because. The edibles. Oh, that's an easy way to, you know, get high or to get relief edibles or a little bit tricky. And you have to be careful because first of all in general with cannabis everybody responds differently. It depends on your own body. I might need to milligrams of CBD for relief. You might need twelve. It really depends on each person. But edibles in particular because it's going through the GI system. It goes through the liver, and there's an enzyme in the liver CYP four fifty and that's used in the metabolism. If you drink alcohol than some of that enzyme is being used to break down the alcohol, so therefore less of the marijuana or the cannabis is broken down. So you might hyper respond, so if you take an edible and someone says, oh, it's only five milligrams of THC, and you take it and you drink alcohol, you're going to have a much bigger. Response to that THC. So that is what people have said to me. Oh, you know, I tried it once so you really need to be educated. If you're going to use cannabis for health reasons, you need to be educated you need to look at the different modes of ingesting it or using it in be smart about it and work with someone who understands this. You can do some research online in the medical marijuana dispensaries. I some of them are very knowledgeable. When the first time when my dad went in by himself, they gave him a variety of cannabis that suppressed appetite now he was having a very hard time eating..

Marijuana is now legal for medical purposes in 30 states

"Recently the US food and. Drug. Administration approved a. Form of medical, marijuana after the treatment. Of seizures associated with two rare, and severe forms of epilepsy and it really seems like we hear more, and more about people using marijuana to treat all sorts of medical problems and to help overcome the side effects of some. Traditional medical treatments thirty states and the district of, Columbia currently, have laws legalizing medical marijuana in some form here to discuss as, internal medicine specialist and addiction expert Dr John Ebert welcome back to the program Dr, Ebert it's, great to see you thanks for having me back Dr Robert, thanks for coming, so medical marijuana legitimate for medical use since we last spoke about this the national academies. Of science came out with a report, in that report essentially summarizes all the available medical literature looking at the efficacy or the effectiveness of it in the safety of medical cannabis and what they found was that it is very effective for three specific conditions and one of them is specificity the other one is chronic pain what was that first one so asbestos muscle spasms so some people that have spinal cord injuries or some people who have multiple sclerosis can have incredibly painful specificity the muscles spontaneously spasm very painful it's like a charlie horse but constantly okay right it's effective for that it's effective for nausea and it's effective for chronic pain and specifically neuropathy pain or pain that comes from a nerve so what's interesting about their findings as they didn't have a lot of data that actually supported that it was truly effective for the indication that the new drug approved by the f._d._a. is indicated for which is which is epilepsy or the severe forms of epilepsy there is some existing data but but they didn't have a lot i think it's important for patients who are interested to to or interested in exploring this as a methodology to talk to their clinicians and and really asked the question would it seem like the condition that i have might be effectively treated by medical cannabis and those clinicians i think need to have that information or there is that information's available on the internet and can be searched and can be learned so that they can share that with their patients Is there some. Science behind it you know why it works yeah so there's been lots of science in the space which has somewhat been impeded by the fact that under federal law, medical cannabis is illegal so there's no research so there is there has been you can? Actually and there, has and is ongoing research it is possible to have approval to do research with medical cannabis so there's there's research suggesting that is for these conditions so why why does it work Well what's interesting about so I I. Sorta fi patients for medical cannabis and when I speak with these patients, a lot of. Them are interested in medical cannabis because they nothing else really seems, to have worked and most of the patients at up. Certified have been for chronic pain? They say I want to? Try. Something new and I say it might be effective for pain and one of the things that they they really struggle with some of those. Preconceived notions about what. It is to to smoke pot, if people traditionally, smoked tied in what it is to. Use medical cannabis very different experiences so if someone smoked a medical. Marijuana cigarette for non medicinal purposes you get a hundred. And four? Different chemicals in there States like Minnesota that we are in now have actually limited their program to two of those chemicals so of the hundred, and four possible. Chemicals that, you get when you smoke a joint, if you will you only get two, of them in Minnesota in those two are tetrahydrocannabinol which is the the molecule that gets people high. When they smoke in Canana dial now we think that the Kanana dial. Has some, very interesting and important therapeutic properties it doesn't work like tetrahydrocannabinol but it can actually. Help with pain as an anti inflammatory, it can actually help with pain to reduce nerve transmission which is how it might be working. For seizures and epilepsy that new medication approved by the FDA basically just, pure CBD or. Dial in most of the states have that as one of the, molecules that you can get when you are when you're Subscribed or your proof for medical marijuana in

"Get changed but in. The meantime what it's done is, it's essentially restricted all research into an avenue it's so if it's a schedule one narcotic it is deemed as harmful it's deemed as, not having any medical value at. All and is therefore blocked from research will I? Don't. Know, of any other substance on earth that has this profound of an effect to a person or an animal's health and wellness that is still considered partially illegal federal level so obviously, we love to see some change here and you, know when. People complain oh well there's not enough research we need more research. Well we're, not going to get much more research until we D. schedule cannabis and sadly what's happened when you look at the time line and the history of all this CBD was discovered or at least became largely well known in the. Public's mind, after cannabis was placed on the controlled substance act so now we have, is, a, completely non psychoactive substance. With profound medical value. Has, by default become a schedule one narcotic and that's crazy I. Can't disagree with you on that bridge a background on it you see the traction across the US with legalization of both medical and recreational marijuana you see that opening up a lot of future opportunities for where this class of I want to call it a drug probably. Putting a wrong label but classics absences becomes more readily available and better tested for therapeutic and medicinal purposes one would think, that you know The expansion of medical cannabis laws with lead to the federal government, actually rethinking this, but those two don't seem to, be going hand in, hand but what's happening instead. Which is probably counterproductive to what the federal government actually. Wants to happen is there simply strengthening the medical cannabis movement and keeping this. Federally illegal wallets legal on a state level has created all kinds of. Confusion and it hasn't necessarily moved the needle on research because as. Long as we've got cannabis as a schedule one narcotic federally that means they can. Restrict banking they can restrict research they can restrict interstate commerce there's all kinds of restrictions that come with that classification so, our biggest hope of all, the things that we'd like to see change the biggest change that needs to happen. Is removing it from the control It? Substance act, not just for the sake of CBD but so, that we can study all of. The canal and we can study them on all species there's so many questions we still don't have answered and? We, keep hitting roadblocks with research because of this federal classification not to mention how difficult it is for businesses like, ours and others to do banking I mean we've had so. Many challenges with regard, to that and it's it's absurd that we have to go through this. When we're simply trying to make our animals feel better with a completely safe and nontoxic substance that is grown on earth and has been, used by mankind and their animals for thousands and thousands of years I can only imagine being on your, side of the, fence and the challenges goes have, what about messaging I, mean you are a product. Company you have to market you have to message to. Folks what type of restrictions do you guys have with this class of products. That you have to be sensitive to well we can't make any claims At all which is tricky because we get reviews you, know all day? Long about, how effective the product is on all these different, conditions and yet we can't really. Provide that information on our website the FDA would not allow it we cannot make claims about any substance that? Hasn't, gone through proper FDA trials So if you look at our, website we've pared down substantially on that information. Out of necessity and for remaining compliant, it's not the way we want to go but it's the, way we have to go in our intention is to stay in business. Because. At this point we've got hundreds of thousands of animals, across the world using. Our product not just.

UK to review medical cannabis policy as Canada plans imminent legalisation for all uses

"Just a just during the week the uk government said it's reviewing its bomb on kind of a space medicines after medicinal cannabis oil was was confiscated from a boy with epilepsy who was later hospitalized with seizures a lot of countries are looking at legislation to legalise cannabis products what's what's behind that push you must remember that the vast majority of people who use cannabis for range of medical conditions and fortunately conventional medicine has has failed them and that's no fault of conventional medicine that's the way the world medications some of them work some of the dealt work many people have source kind this as a relief from the symptoms and in some cases it's been dramatic improvements in medical conditions as you say see people have been seizure kids been seizure phrase results taking count of soil treated things like multiple sclerosis chronic pain particularly effective in chronic pain and so there's a huge huge push now to use a product that is seems to be very safe and certainly far safer the many conventional medicines in terms of its side effect profile so weedy i don't know what the delay in this is to be honest i think i know what's behind the delay is unfortunately people still can't separate out the recreational use of cannabis on the medicinal use of cannabis every time i hear the word medicinal cannabis by detractors they talk about kind of psychosis this is completely separate issue the chance of them abusing thus i am getting mental illness but the idea that it'd be misused in some way our diverse or whatever is nonsense h c i mean how is the taken ice of the medicinal cannabis it's an interesting kind of distinction here between cd and thc is that it doesn't have any psychoactive properties for thc till's thc the psychoactive the people who recreationally use cannabis largely exactly cpg is meant to have actually antipsychotic properties and pain relief properties i'm actually cbgb's not illegal and see that he's actually been sold in sort of hemp shops and nobody breaks it all by by but a lot of research is is now on the wipes clean canada around getting the mixture of cbd and thc rice in terms of relieving symptoms of many conditions so thc remember in far lesser concentrations that won't be an enormous joined seems to be walk is people most medicinal relief there's a lot of companies who will sell sell cbd oil and they'll exporters around europe so if somebody was to order that into airland with a very low level of thc is still going to be a problem down stop they will be they will be prosecuted i mean simon harris who's the health minister in ireland he he could use some of the arguments that he used for the abortion referendum in that people are doing this anyway so let's legalize made up punch a number times i south it's interesting you've made the point people are doing it anyway quite rice and it really saddens me to think the people actually are breaking the law by actually trying to get symptom relief for for medical conditions and found equation it's inhumane and i think it really kinda needs to change and i think it will change and if you look at the reports in the uk today i think they're looking at changing because i think i think the there's a little bit of a groundswell now even people who don't particularly like cannabis as a drug or don't like illicit drugs an old fashioned jails i think they're beginning to realize now that the that the law does you know medicinal cannabis in some way we'll be a gateway into kind of wider drug use i think that lies really been mcgovern from the priority medical clinic in dublin thanks for joining us on inside europe thank you one of the world's biggest populations of child soldiers lives in the democratic republic of the congo about thirty thousand children are forced to serve armed groups of soldiers sexual slaves and laborers that's according to unicef lisa bryant caught up with one former child soldier at a new piece for forum in the french region of normandy which is not far from the d day beaches of world war two.

"You know medical cannabis shops and the people who own them and who are licensed to run them you know do tend to be the first ones in line for recreational shops if that if and when that goes live and sort of you know on the extreme stream end of things they're you know washington state merged their two programs in the two you know became subject you know largely to the same set of rules and regulations to sort of simplify things so on a state by state basis who issues licenses for dispensaries of recreational marijuana if a state like for example massachusetts has approved recreational use of marijuana how are the dispensaries approved community by community well the way that that happens varies state by state again patchwork that's sort of the name of the game the entire cannabis beat right now until things change federally it's just going to be a different approach you know state by state and then you know within jurisdictions but you know sort of broadly speaking you know dispensary licensees or or a dispensary licensee hopefuls you know have to meet a pretty strict generally speaking you know list of criteria you know they got to make sure that they're financially wellfunded so you know the last thing regulators one is to approve somebody and then that company goes bankrupt you know they gotta make sure that they're strictly adhering to zoning regulations meaning you know you can't be for example a thousand feet from school or a park or rehabilitation facility those are just some you know broad examples you know making sure that even even sort of some of the some of the things that you know somebody opening a bakery might have to consider if it's a processing facility where they're making edibles they often have to be licensed inspected to make sure that the kitchen is clean so some some of this is sort of just like run of the mill boring business stuff of creating a business and some of its you know special considerations like you know we really want to make sure that you're not advertising that you know you have a medical cannabis dispensary here so kids walking home from school even if it's thousand feet from the school you know see in bright big glaring letters this is where you might be able to find a joint that sort of thing let me get a caller in here charlie and burlington vermont hi charlie harder thanks for taking my call my question is pretty simple in states such as ours in vermont where we have a recreational law is there any other ways in any of the northern states for local governments to regulate other than not allowing dispensaries charlie thanks alison yeah actually there have been a couple of instances where you know localities have either put strict regulations around home cultivation or outright bandit i think you know this is a few years ago but i think the aclu sued fresno over medical cannabis cultivation so i mean i think a lot of this stuff is you know as the cannabis industry matures as these rules and regulations start to mature more this is going to come down to almost a you know what are my rights the voters passed this we have to adhere to the will of the voters here i mean i think that you know people will probably see you know local officials try to take a hard line approach in some areas for sure but how that plays out i think we'll we'll sort of depend on which locality it is and you know whether people frankly sue and push back i'm an example here of one community this taken a hardline approach joining me from north andover massachusetts is tell manager andrew mailer andrew welcome to one point nice to have you hygiene so the tone of north andover has opted for a ban on marijuana even though message chusetts has legalized recreational marijuana tell us how that came about one of the massachusetts will if a community voted on the referendum question to legalize recreational marijuana that if the committee voted self on a friend was in opposition of of legalizing recreational marijuana then they have the option to ban any of.
