Scientists claim the US Government is still limiting cannabis research

Scientists claim the US Government is still limiting cannabis research. Patients now have better access to cannabis than researchers do.

A group of scientists have just published an article claiming that the US government is holding back proper research into cannabis due to its overzealous regulation of the substance.

While millions of patients are already using medical cannabis – and more and more states are decriminalizing the drug,  scientists are still denied access to high-quality marijuana, which makes it hard to properly investigate the risks and benefits of consuming the plant.

“This has created a unique and unnecessary paradox in modern medicine, in which doctors are authorizing treatments to patients and patients are regularly using medication without a scientific basis of knowledge on patient outcomes, forced rather to rely only on scientifically invalid or anecdotal information,” say Sarah Stith and Jacob Vigil (the University of New Mexico)

In a letter published in Science, the researchers claim that while we have compelling evidence that marijuana has a whole range of therapeutic benefits, users report that it is capable of easing symptoms of chemotherapy, chronic pain, and post traumatic stress disorder – many of these effects haven’t been tested in externally valid, randomized clinical trials.

That is because the US government continues to list Cannabis sativa as a Schedule 1 drug. A category limited to drugs with “no currently accepted medical use” and “high potential for abuse” – despite the fact that more than 75% of US doctors polled think medical marijuana is a safe and effective treatment.

Due to its classification, researchers can only access cannabis through the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) – and NIDA only supplies product that’s significantly less potent than the cannabis available on the street.

“Millions of patients have been granted the authorization to use medical marijuana and cannabis-based products by their respective state health departments and 4 states have begun taxing and regulating cannabis sold for ‘recreational’ purposes,” said Vigil and Stith.

“However, the federal government continues to categorize Cannabis sativa as a Schedule I Drug under the Controlled Substances Act, a more restrictive categorization than that used for cocaine, methamphetamine and PCP.”

The big problem with this NIDA-controlled drugs is that, despite multiple proposals from other universities, the government only supplies cannabis grown at the University of Mississippi. And their plant is a lot weaker than the product prescribed by doctors.

For example, the highest content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana – available to researchers through NIDA is 12.4%, the researchers reported. Last year, the only two clinical studies funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) used products with potency levels between 3.5% and 7% THC.

To put that into perspective, the medical marijuana now sold in Colorado averages 18.7% with some strains as strong as 35% THC. Some states, including New Mexico have given permission for edibles and vaping products to contain up to 70% potency.

“Clearly, results from studies using Cannabis sativa obtained from the University of Mississippi offer little insight into the effects actually experienced by medical cannabis patients in terms of both therapeutic benefits and negative side effects, if any,” say Vigil and Stith.

The researchers call for government control over marijuana research to start easing up alongside their regulation of medical cannabis, so scientists can make sure everything available to the public is actually safe and effective.

“As long as clinical research on marijuana is controlled by regulators expressly opposed to any increase in its consumption, health care cost reductions may be missed, and intoxication and long-term effects will remain unknown,” they write.

“Most important, many severely ill patients may suffer unnecessarily because no one knows the true benefits or risks of consuming Cannabis sativa.”

Heavyweight seeds

When Heavyweight Seeds were originally set up in Spain in 2008, their interest was carrying out the development of strains that would satisfy the tastes of all consumers.  All of the effort and dedication ended in 2010 and as a result, they produced a delicious and important range of strains which came from the most stable and pure genetics. It was time to release their strains into the European Market in 2010 after 2 long years of dedication, ongoing research and development.

Heavyweight Seeds are specialized in plants that have particularly strong effects and, of course, with a very high yield … they are the source of a new age.

In their catalogue you will find the most powerful feminized seeds and auto flowering strains that are making history worldwide. Their seed bank offers a full menu of flavours and tastes contained in totally brutal crops.

Try their Sativa strains and have a lot of laughs with your friends! Or if you are looking for more introspection and finding yourself … try with their Indicas, if you dare!

Have you heard of their Fast & Vast? It’s the strain that changed the history! If you are looking for maximum performance and maximum power in an auto flowering strain, look no further!

Fast was the first hurdle for Heavyweight, taking a sturdy White Dwarf and crossing it with an auto Skunk that would reach its full potential in 7 careful weeks, and then the Vast came when further crossing with a powerful Afghani auto. Great care has been taken to ensure that the high yields are not at the expense of quality, the long thick buds covered in sparkling crystals produce a high quality soft and sweet smoke with spicy undertones. The effect is very fast and knock out, leading to a long relaxed stone.

If you would rather try our feminised seeds you can start growing our Fruit Punch which is fast becoming a legend around the globe. This quickly flowering sativa dominant plant produces both big yields and the sweetest of smokes. The high is uplifting and creative; perfect for social occasions, daytime toking and pain relief without couch lock. Fruit Punch is a breeze to grow and a great choice for beginners. Commercial growers also love this plant for its rapid and trouble free reliability, producing big crops time and time again. Once you’ve tasted the Punch, you’ll be sure to come back for more!

As you see, no matter which option you choose, we will always have a strain you love, you just have to try them!

Heavyweight Seeds will be attending different shows this year over Europe. Heavyweight Seeds is a consolidated company, building a name for consistency and quality, time and time again. They are not ordinary seeds, they are the Heavyweight Seeds!

regulating cannabis

A report by Radboud University researchers which says legalizing cannabis production would have benefits for public health and human rights will not have an impact on government policy, Justice Minister Ard van der Steur has told MPs.

The report’s findings are no reason to change policy on cannabis cafes, known as coffee shops, the minister said in answer to questions from the Socialists and D66. The study found that illegal cannabis production was linked to criminal violence, fires, environmental and noise pollution and the spread of legionella bacteria, the Volkskrant reported last month.

Legalising the process, they argued, would potentially improve health and safety and therefore be justified on human rights grounds. Local authorities would have more scope to reduce the harmful effects of cannabis, for example by limiting the level of the active ingredient THC in legally grown plants.
