A student from Oakton Community College submitted a compelling answer to the question: what is the real difference between indicas and sativas?
Candida albicans is a common fungal pathogen in humans. Biofilm formation is an important virulence factor of C. albicans infections. We investigated the ability of the plant-derived cannabidiol (CBD) to inhibit the formation and removal of fungal biofilms. Further, we evaluated its mode of action.
Epidermolysis bullosa is a rare blistering skin disorder that is challenging to manage because skin fragility and repeated wound healing cause itching, pain, limited mobility, and recurrent infections. Cannabidiol, an active cannabinoid found in cannabis, is postulated to have antiinflammatory and analgesic effects.
To evaluate the safety, efficacy, and tolerability of highly purified cannabidiol (CBD) for the treatment of seizures in children and adults with treatment-resistant epilepsy (TRE) in an open-label, expanded access program (EAP).
The newly discovered endocannabinoid system (ECS; comprising the endogenous lipid mediators endocanna- binoids present in virtually all tissues, their G-protein- coupled cannabinoid receptors, biosynthetic pathways and metabolizing enzymes) has been implicated in multiple regulatory functions both in health and disease.
Preclinical data suggest some cannabinoids may exert antitumour effects against glioblastoma (GBM). Safety and preliminary efficacy of nabiximols oromucosal cannabinoid spray plus dose-intense temozolomide (DIT) was evaluated in patients with first recurrence of GBM.
Sarah Mann, MD analyses the knowledge gap in medical schools on cannabis therapeutics and how education can empower both healthcare professionals and the patients that they serve.
Some men worry that they are not manly enough, and wonder if a lack of testosterone is the reason. Others comment, like a reader recently did, on the age-old fearmongering, unscientific propaganda about Cannabis (specifically THC) that it is a “potent suppressor of testosterone.”

Medical cannabis use is increasing rapidly in the past several years, with older adults being the fastest growing group. Nevertheless, the evidence for cardiovascular safety of cannabis use is scarce. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of cannabis on blood pressure, heart rate, and metabolic parameters in older adults with hypertension.
