  • The most important cannabis studies and events
In today's article, we will summarize the absolutely essential research on the effects of cannabis . These studies can be included among the top of modern marijuana research. These are studies confirming therapeutic effects against diverse diseases, as well as studies refuting general myths such as "cannabis smoking is guaranteed to cause lung cancer as well as cigarettes ."

It is important to realize that cannabis research data is always only half the story - it can be true or misleading. Even before we get into really good surveys offering valuable insights intoFor the healing spectrum of cannabis , let's take a look at the most typical unsupported "proof" that anti-cannabis propaganda has tried to put into the heads of potential consumers for the last century.

Demystification of the effects of cannabis

The story of perhaps the most misleading "evidence" which was long used to damage the image of the therapeutic cannabis, beginning in 1974 when Dr. Robert Galbraith published the results of a study conducted at Tulane University . Dr. Galbraith is a well-known controversial figure in neurology today. He has built his reputation mainly because of the enthusiasm for "shock therapy" during which he used electric shocks to achieve deep-brain stimulation.Galbraith, for example, tried to convert homosexuals back to heterosexuals.

Doctor Galbraith also willingly participated in secret experiments conducted by the then CIA agency during which there were illegal experiments with a hallucinogenic drug called bulbocapnine in an effort to invent a highly functional ' brain washer '. But at that time, Galbraith's reputation remained unblemished.

So when the results of Galbraith's study of the effects of cannabis came to the surface , the media took on responsibly responsibly and proudly published "THC kills brain cells" or "Marijuana causes brain damage" headlines. Moreover, as you can imagine, the articles were presented as a factual claim without a drop of skepticism. Meanwhile, the then US president Ronald Reagan seized the results and immediately began to claim that the legalization of cannabis was not even a hint.

Indian Commission for Cannabis Drugs (1894)

During 1893, India was under British rule. The then colonial government began to be concerned about the amount of cannabis (at that time, the name of the cannabis)Yvan "cannabis" ) that local people consume on a daily bases. It was therefore decided that it is time to send out teams of British and Indian doctors across the country to see how their cannabis influence on not only on health but also on the morale of the company .

The result was a massive, more than 3,000-page research study containing authentic records of over 1,200 " ogins , doctors, fakirs , foolish leaders, villagers using bhang drink , smugglers, army officers, cannabis dealers, managerganja palaces as well as clergy representatives. ”All the data collected in this seven-chapter explorer dataset led to two fundamental assumptions: " moderate cannabis use is harmless, rather beneficial, and its prohibition would be a fundamental violation of justice."

Propaganda against hemp Vs " La Gu ardia Report "(1944)

A period of disinformation led predominantly by Harry J. Anslinger (head of the former US Department of Narcotics Control) and " Reefer " propaganda films Madness has taken a spirited and unbearableMajor New York's outrageous response to Fiorella La Guardia, who commissioned a division of prestigious doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, pharmacologists, chemists and sociologists at the time to review and investigate all available scientific literature on cannabis effects.

The results of the revision were published under the title "La Guardia Report . " The study immediately gained enormous respect for university land and was awarded the prestigious New York Academy of Medicine Award.

"FiLa Data of La Guardia Report claims that cannabis prohibition is a clear and clear failure.

"Marijuana, like alcohol, has no effect on the lasting changes in personality," researchers conclude. "Marijuana itself does not cause antisocial behavior. Furthermore, there is no evidence that regular use of marijuana directly leads to the subsequent use of opioids. Long-term cannabis use does not lead to physical, mental or moral degeneration. On the contrary, we can conclude from the results that substances derived from plantsmarijuana may in certain cases offer potential therapeutic benefits that deserve further in-depth research. ”

Study 1: Discovery of the THC Molecule (1964)

In 1964, when a team of Israeli scientists led by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam first identified and described the THC molecule as the primary psychoactive substance in medicinal cannabis plants , there was not only a fundamental shift in understanding the effects of marijuana, but also a series of consciousness in how we understand the whole human body.

Study 2 .: Cannabis Reduces Tumors (1974)

The primary purpose of the 1974 study, which demonstrated a positive effect of cannabis substances on tumor growth, was paradoxically to prove that cannabis is damaging the immune system. A study sponsored by the National Drug Control Agency (NIDA) and the American Cancer Organization was conducted at the University of Virginia, where researchers implanted tumors of the mice and subsequently "treated with delta-9-THC for 10 consecutive days" since the first day of tumor implantation. ”

"The intention was to prove that THC is accelerating the growth of tumor cells, but the opposite was true."

The results of the study were subsequently published in the scientific journal " The Journal of the National  Cancer Institute " and illustrate how " THC and CBN helped reduce the overall tumor size in mice treated for 20 days. " Great and progressive results, right?

The authors of the study were excited about the results and were already looking forward to the next phase of the investigation. But to their disappointment, they were told that NIDA was putting an end to all other funding, not just that - it was actively trying to fog and suppress the results of its first research. In the end, the whole thing went so that the only publication talking about a possible slowdown in cannabis cell growth was the article in the Washington Post, published August 18.

Until one of the scholars decided to follow up on this "forgotten" study, nearly three decades had passed, but fortunately Dr. Manuel Guzman , a professor of biochemistry at the University of Madrid, seized the task. he was able to replicate his results.
