Proposal Aims For Medical Marijuana Legalization In North Carolina

A recent proposal aims to legalize medical marijuana in North Carolina. The bill lays out the development of a medical marijuana supply system and aims to create a program administered by the UNC system called the North Carolina Cannabis Research Program. The program would conduct studies to determine the safety and efficacy of cannabis as medical treatment and then develop guidelines for the appropriate physician administration and patient use of medical cannabis.

Industrial Hemp Project At The University Of Minnesota

University of Minnesota students may do double-takes this summer if they spot what looks like marijuana plants growing on the agricultural testing fields at the St. Paul campus. However, the dark green foliage with jagged leaves will actually be industrial hemp, a close look-alike and cousin to marijuana that’s useless for getting high but potentially valuable for certain foods, cosmetics, and oil.

Texas One Step Closer To Decriminalizing Marijuana

Texas is one step closer to eradicating the criminal penalties associated with minor marijuana possession. The House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee recently put its seal of approval on a proposal (House Bill 81) that would allow police all over the state to simply slap those people caught in possession of up to an ounce of weed with a small fine instead of dragging them to jail. The state currently deems this offense a Class B misdemeanor, which carries the potential for marijuana offenders to serve up to six months behind bars.

Marijuana Stocks

Marijuana Testing labs are the mystery of the marijuana / cannabis industry.  Marijuana Stocks / Cannabis Companies rely on these labs to determine the level of THC in their products or give them a pass with regards to mold, pests, or pesticides.  The problem is that not all labs are created equal.  The labs themselves aren’t inspected or graded by any agencies and customers have no idea whether products were tested at a reputable lab.  Some believe that the problem is standardization, but there are plenty of state standards.  The real problem is enforcement.

Marijuana consumers tend to equate THC levels with price.  They believe if an edible has a low THC level, it should be cheaper and conversely, if it has a high THC level, it should cost more.  They are looking for more bang for their buck.  Can I get something with 25 mg of THC as cheaply as possible?  The producers know this is just plain wrong.  The process for extracting THC is the same whether the amount is small or not

Many customers prefer a smaller level of THC in order to go about their day without being extremely impaired.  However, because of this developing value trend, some producers are incentivized to get their products listed with higher THC levels and some labs are willing to help them get there.

Dylan Hirsch, executive vice president of a lab corporation said, “Many of the labs will sometimes say they can get better results. It can be so subjective for results on THC.” Sometimes, it’s the growers who are unscrupulous.  They may bring a different product than their own to the lab for testing, one that could have higher THC.  He stated, “There is no assurance that what the lab tested and what they are now selling to someone else is the same product.  Hirsch suggested that there needs to be a tighter supply chain.

Part of the challenge is that the lab’s business model makes it difficult to be profitable.  The machinery is expensive and their staff scientists are well-paid professionals.  For example, testing equipment may cost $600,000, but then they may only be testing 2 samples a day for maybe $100 each.  Hirsch also pointed out that the lab may have expensive testing equipment, but then the testers might not be that great.

Garyn Angel, CEO an infuser machine company, said that different testers give different results.  He believes that another part of the problem is that there are no standard operating procedures for testing marijuana and infused products.  Angel said, “Everything in science works on standard operating procedures.  True science is repeatable.  Testing cannabinoids though is not like testing blood.”  He believes the problem is that the labs don’t want to share their methods and feel it is proprietary because of the competition among labs.

Can CBDs Found in Marijuana Be an Alternative Treatment to Diabetes


The combination of CBD and THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) looks to have significant therapeutic potential in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. Research concerning THCV and Type 2 diabetes has been making scientific news for at least three years. THCV is what chemists call the propyl variant of THC. While THCV is psychoactive, it’s a shorter, more intense high than THC. THC is a few hours at the amusement park; THCV is an hour on the roller coaster.

HempLife Today set to capitalize on recent retired NFL players and Celebrity endorsements of Cannabidiol (CBD), and the awareness generated

Over the last 12 months many notable NFL athletes and celebrities have spoken about CBD (Cannabidiol), and how it gave them relief from pain and ailments both common and more serious, and this publicity is helping to fuel the awareness of CBD in the US and around the world. Below is just a sample of these statements and endorsements;

“I was open for anything at that point to try. And once I tried it and was consistent on CBD, that’s when I realized, ‘Wow, this stuff works” Jake Plummer/ Former Denver Broncos starting quarterback / CBSnews.com

“I’ve had friends, guys I played alongside, whose mood changed from night to day. I know others who’ve replaced hellacious amounts of painkillers with CBD” Jake Plummer/ Former Denver Broncos starting quarterback / Denver Post

“For me, I feel like if you don’t want to get high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort” Whoopi Goldberg
“It’ll [CBD Oil] make your life a better place” – Nate Diaz Lightweight and Welterweight UFC fighter.

In addition to Nate Diaz, Lightweight and Welterweight UFC fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone talks about the benefits of CBD and how he uses it for training and pain relief on The Joe Rogan Experience episode number 699, one of the largest Podcasts in the world today.

Other notable celebrities who have publicly endorsed the use of CBD are; Morgan Freeman, Montel Willliams, Tommy Chong, and Mellissa Etheridge.

Even Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN has been endorsing the benefits of CBD on his many episodes of “Weed” since 2013, and this first public endorsement of CBD by a well known doctor has continued to resonate.

HempLife Today™ sees a direct correlation of these endorsements and an increase in Internet traffic and searches for CBD and related links. With its solid footprint on the Internet and the ever growing awareness of CBD and the CannazALL™ CBD product line, the Company believes that as more notable people publicly talk about their CBD use this trend will continue and it will result in increased sales for the company.

“We are starting to see that CBD awareness is going above the 5% mark in the general public” Said Luke Dreyer, Operations manager “and this means that the tide is rising and CBD awareness is increasing. This is what boosts our monthly and quarterly sales apart from our other major marketing initiatives. This is free publicity for a product that people want and you can’t get better than that.”

“We definitely see the increase in awareness benefiting our company” adds James Ballas, CEO “and this is why we built our company the way that we did, to constantly take advantage of the massive free publicity about this product that grows daily. So let’s add it up…We have developed the finest Hemp derived CBD products that we can, in a legal alternative to medical marijuana that we can deliver to all 50 states. Traffic to our site is growing daily and all of our marketing efforts are off the scale in profitability, plus, we get a ton of free publicity by doctors, celebrities, athletes, and more, not to mention the incredible word of mouth by our customers. Not bad, and we will continue to grow the Company in this manner.”

Biomedical research is teaming up with the University of Oxford to set up a lab to research the effects of medical marijuana on various health conditions. The school’s Cannabis Research Plan will study the use of cannabinoids to treat cancer, inflammatory diseases, neurological disorders, and pain.

Doctor Ahmed Ahmed, professor of gynecological oncology at Oxford recently stated, “Cannabinoid research has started to produce exciting biological discoveries, and this research program is a timely opportunity to increase our understanding of the role of cannabinoids in health and disease. This field holds great promise for developing novel therapeutic opportunities for cancer patients.”

The school will be paired with Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies (OCT), a bio-med startup funded by venture capital firm Kingsley Capital Partners. Neil Mahapatra, a managing partner at Kingsley, explained the strategy behind the company’s initial funding of $12.5 million to the lab. He stated, “Medical cannabis and cannabinoid medicine is already helping patients with some of the most distressing conditions across the world. However, research into the specific pathways and mechanisms that create this benefit is limited and long overdue. Through OCT, we hope our strategic partnership with Oxford will support the development of innovative new therapies to help millions of people around the world. The partnership gives the UK a global leadership role in this fast-growing field.”

Even though the use of medical marijuana is still not legal in the UK, a drug containing cannabinoids THC and CBD, Sativex, is legal to treat multiple sclerosis. The Green Party and Liberal Democrats support the legalization of medical marijuana. Members of the Labor and Conservative parties, and even Sir Patrick Stewart show their support, as well. The actor stated, “Two years ago, in Los Angeles I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannabis-based products, which I was advised might help the osteoarthritis in both my hands.” He continued, “As a result of this experience, I enthusiastically support the Oxford University Cannabis Research Plan.”

Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies currently plans to bring in investors for the next round of funding to the lab, and recruiting volunteers, both patients and healthy subjects, to participate in clinical trials. The group will also be hosting the International Cannabinoid Biomedicine Conference later this year.

Proposal In Nevada Aims To Loosen Cannabis Regulations

Senate Bill 329, introduced by Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, would loosen some medical marijuana regulations, an idea Governor Brian Sandoval has stated his opposition to. Senate Bill 329 proposes a plethora of changes to how the state deals with cannabis. It would allow veterans to obtain a medical marijuana card, add PTSD to the list of conditions that qualify for those cards and even make it so cards do not need to be renewed. Medical cards now last 12 months in Nevada.

Florida Marijuana

A proposal that would award $2.5 million for UF to study medical marijuana recently moved forward in the Florida House of Representatives. The proposal states that money from the General Revenue Fund will be used to fund UF’s study on the safety and efficiency of medical cannabis. The bill, which passed through the Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee, moved into the Appropriations Committee on Friday.

If the bill is passed in the committee, it will go to a full House vote for final approval. If it passes through the House, the proposal states the one time fund will be finalized in July. House member Dane Eagle, a republican who represents District 77, sponsored the proposal, which was first submitted February 7. Janine Sikes, spokesperson for UF, wrote in an email that the money would fund UF’s proposed Cannabis and Safety Outcomes Surveillance System, a program which would monitor the safety and effectiveness of medical cannabis on 25,000 enrolled patients throughout the state.

Florida’s Amendment 2, a constitutional amendment that allows stronger cannabis to be used for a broader list of conditions, took effect in January. Of the six medical cannabis dispensaries licensed in Florida, two are in Alachua County, according to the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Compassionate Use. Sikes said the UF program would monitor treatments that haven’t been approved by the FDA. UF would create a secure Data Warehouse to track patient data as part of the program.

She said the $2.5 million would be for costs such as faculty salaries and data processing. She stated, “Evidence is lacking to evaluate risk/benefit of medical marijuana. It is pivotal that the state establishes a system to monitor emerging safety concerns, especially for use in children.” She said the proposal is related to the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014, which requires physicians to submit a quarterly patient treatment plan to the UF’s College of Pharmacy for research on the safety and effectiveness of low-THC cannabis on patients. The details of the proposal state that it would offer funding to implement research provisions in the 2014 act.

A UF nursing senior, Alicia Ciliezar, said she supports the use and research of medical cannabis. The substance helps improve pain levels for individuals with issues such as neurologic conditions and digestive disorders. She said, “I’m very eager to see the aims of the study, the objectives and the outcomes. I’m sure it will be fascinating and shape our perception on the substance.”
