New Study Confirms That Marijuana Can Help ADHD

Cannabis can help improve symptoms of ADHD, according to the results of a new study.

Many people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) find marijuana helpful for managing their symptoms, such as trouble focusing and being impulsive. But few studies have looked at marijuana as a treatment option, until now.

In a 2016 study by researchers at King’s College London, treatment with a cannabis-based spray was shown to reduce symptoms in patients with ADHD. The study involved 30 adults with ADHD, who were given either Sativex or placebo over a four-week period.

Sativex is a pharmaceutical spray made from extracts of the whole cannabis plant. It contains a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD and is one of the very few cannabis-based treatments to be approved as a prescription drug.

Is This Why Only Organic Fruit and Veggies Stop Cancer?

By Makia Freeman, guest Natural Blaze

Salvestrols are the wonder nutrients found in fruit and vegetables that hold potential as yet another safe, effective and natural cancer cure. In 1995,Professor Dan Burke accidentally discovered that cancer cells contained an enzyme that was not found in normal healthy cells. Later on in 1997, after conducting extensive research with Professor Gerry Potter, he discovered that a certain type of polyphenyl (plant nutrient) found in fruit and vegetables was able to bind with this cancer enzyme – and subsequently destroy the cancer cell.

The researchers decided to call this group of phytonutrients salvestrols (salvemeans to save and strol is derived from resveratrol, the first salvestrol). Being the medicinal part of the plant, theses salvestrols taste bitter, which unfortunately means they have been bred out of existence in some strains of fruit (e.g. apples) by large-scale agro-corporate farming, which constantly tries to make everything sweeter to sell more product. Salvestrols belong to another subcategory calledphytoalexins, which are substances produced by plants to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses, fungi, insects and ultraviolet light.

Montana House Passes Bill to Legalize Some Raw Milk Sales

By Michael Maharrey

Today, the Montana House passed a bill that would legalize limited raw milk sales in the state. Passage into law would take an important step toward rejecting a federal prohibition scheme in effect.

Rep. Nancy Ballance (R-Hamilton) introduced House Bill 325 (HB325) on Jan. 26. The legislation would authorize limited sales of raw milk from producer to consumer.

Current Montana law prohibits raw milk sales.

The House passed HB325 by a 69-30 vote.

Under the proposed law, a “small dairy,” would not be required to obtain a license to produce dairy products. This would allow them to sell raw milk direct to the consumer. The amended bill defines a small dairy as a place with no more than five lactating cows, 10 lactating goats or 10 lactating sheep. Under the original bill, a small dairy would have been allowed to have twice as many animals.
