t-pain Posted November 5, 2013 Report Share Posted November 5, 2013 (edited) Smoked Marijuana is more effective and has less negative side effects than pharmaceutical cannabinoid based medicine. How come prohibitionists keep lying, and why wont they stop?Time and time again, every single prohibition lie has been defeated by the truth.Time and time again, scientific double blind peer-reviewed studies have disproventhe theories made by prohibitionists. This latest unscientific lie to be destroyedis that "smoked marijuana is not medicine".For years patients have been prescribed marinol and other pharmaceutical prescription synthetic cannabinoids. Many of these patients describe howsmoked or vaporized cannabis effects are much better than thier prescriptioncounterparts. Patients report that they are able to titrate their dosage whenusing marijuana in a smoked or vaporized form. Marinol in pill form is notpossible to titrate the dose.The latest study to confirm medical marijuana patients' testimonies is"The medicinal use of cannabis and cannabinoids--an international cross-sectional survey on administration forms."http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24175484Choice quote from the study's abstract? In general, herbal non-pharmaceutical CBMs received higherappreciation scores by participants than pharmaceutical products containingcannabinoids. FULL TEXT HERE: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/The+medicinal+use+of+cannabis+and+cannabinoids--an+international...-a0344393025 More interesting quotes from the full text: The sublingual product nabiximols required the highest number of administrations (mean 10.9) per day. Comparing CBMs in Group 1, subjects using inhalation (smoking and vaporizing) reported a first effect after about seven minutes. Although tea and baked goods/tincture are both taken orally, subjects using cannabis as tea reported more rapid onset of effect (mean 29 min.) than other oral preparations (mean 46 min.). Uptake of cannabinoids can be significantly delayed depending on the nature of the food present in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. For example, fatty foods can significantly delay absorption (Grotenhermen 2002). Patients using nabilone or dronabinol reported the longest time before first onset of effect, likely due to the delay in GI absorption, resulting in similar scores compared to cannabis taken in food or as a tincture. Participants using nabiximols experienced first effects alter an average of 13 minutes, suggesting that nabiximols may be absorbed (at least in part) sublingually, speeding up the process of absorption of cannabinoids. Duration of effects. The duration of effects experienced for each type of CBM was also assessed using the satisfaction score (Table 3c). A longer duration of effect reduces the need for frequent dosing. ... However the lowest scores were observed for nabiximols, followed by oral use of dronabinol and the inhaled use of pure THC. The oral use of cannabis in foods, tincture, or tea received the highest satisfaction scores for duration of effects. Ed note: Interesting sublingual spray sativex (nabiximols) has the worst duration of effects. Followed by dronabinol in pill form. Cannabis smoking, closely followed by vaporizing, scored highest for satisfaction with ease of dose titration, while oral use of cannabinoids scored lowest. The herbal cannabis-based products received mean scores in the range of 7.2 - 8.5 (meaning high overall satisfaction with side-effect profiles), while the pharmaceutical preparations scored notably lower with a range of 4.8 - 6.0. Now show me the scientific double blind peer-reviewed study that showssmoked marijuana is not useful as a medicine.
