hemp lotion scents

The Hemp lotion is becoming increasingly popular

Hemp lotion

The Hemp lotion is becoming increasingly popular due to current research that shows hemp oil to contain high amounts of omega-3 and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) oils, known as Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). EFAs help prevent moisture loss in the skin and may play a regenerative role in the skin aging process. Hemp lotion is a natural skin and body care product that utilizes the beneficial properties of hemp oil. Hemp lotions come in many varieties, from hand lotion to body cream .

Repeated use of hemp body care products has been reported to result in softer and healthier skin and may even help with dry skin conditions such as eczema , since hemp oil has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp skin and body care products are readily available from a wide variety of vendors, including health food stores and online retailers. Other manufacturers are using hemp oil along with vitamins and other natural substances to create body care products that combine the beneficial properties of hemp with other potent compounds.

Legality

Marijuana is still an illegal product in most states, except where its medical use is allowed. This makes some people and retailers wary of using and selling hemp lotions and other hemp products. This makes the hemp lotions and products completely legal.

Moisturizing Effects

The universal claim of hemp lotion producers is that it has an ability to moisturize your skin better than the average lotion. For this reason, many tanners are beginning to use hemp lotion before and after their tanning sessions to prevent their skin from drying out.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is the main ingredient in hemp lotions, which gives these lotions a distinct scent. Your nose will ultimately determine whether or not you deem the scent pleasant or pungent. And if you are concerned about any psychoactivity resulting from hemp lotions, there is nothing to worry about; the mind-altering portions of the cannabis plant are separate from the oil-producing portions.

Many authority on health and nutrition note that hemp oil contains linoleic and linolenic acids in the exact ratio that our body needs. These oils are called Essential Fatty Acids because we cannot manufacture them ourselves and they must be gained from an outside source. Applying these EFAs, such as those found in hemp lotion, to skin is a way to naturally supplement the body’s own protective barrier of moisture.

The hemp oil that is used to make hemp lotion is cold pressed from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant, commonly called marijuana. The seeds of the plant do not contain the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is only found in significant amounts in the flowering tops of the female plant. Hemp oil is not only non-toxic for external use in lotions, moisturizers and creams, but it is also safe and even healthy for internal ingestion. Hemp seeds are currently illegal in some countries, such as the United States, unless they have been sterilized to prevent germination, but hemp oil and hemp skin care products are perfectly legal.

The Hemp lotion is becoming increasingly popular. Hemp lotion is a natural skin and body care product that utilizes the beneficial properties of hemp oil. Hemp lotions come in many varieties, from hand lotion to body cream. ]]>

cannabis ballot 2020

Election Day: Here Are the 2020 Cannabis Ballot Measures to Watch

Voters in New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota, Montana, and Mississippi will see cannabis legalization, for medical or adult use, on their ballots. And in a twist, South Dakota voters will see both, an historic first.

Election Day 2020 could be a windfall for cannabis. Voters in four states — Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, and New Jersey — will decide on legalization for either medical or adult use. And voters in South Dakota will be the first ever to see both medical and adult use measures on their ballots.

Presidential elections are often targeted by legalization advocates because of the higher-than-average voter turnout. In 2016, voters passed cannabis measures in eight of nine states where cannabis was on the ballot.

In fact, if not for the COVID-19 pandemic, which presented restrictions on in-person events and signature gathering, voters in several other states could have decided on medical or adult use legalization. For example, advocates in Arkansas and Oklahoma failed to gather enough signatures, Cannabis Wire reported in a comprehensive analysis on how COVID-19 disrupted cannabis efforts this year. In addition, advocates in Florida, Idaho, Missouri, North Dakota, and Ohio suspended their cannabis campaigns amid the pandemic.

Another twist: anti-legalization advocates called on state supreme courts to pull cannabis measures from ballots. This unprecedented tactic was deployed in three states this year, Nebraska, Montana, and Mississippi. In Nebraska, it worked, and a medical cannabis measure that qualified for the ballot was subsequently pulled. In Mississippi, the top court won’t decide until after the vote. And in Montana, the court rejected the challenge.

Here’s more on the cannabis measures voters in five states will see on their ballots:

Arizona is a bit of a wildcard. In 2016, voters in Arizona were alone in rejecting adult use legalization, which passed in four other states: California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada.

Proposition 207, the 2020 measure that voters will see, would tax and regulate cannabis sales for adults twenty-one and older, allow for individuals to grow up to six plants at home, and provide for the expungement of some cannabis-related convictions. The framework would also direct money from the 16% excise tax on cannabis sales toward schools, law enforcement, fire departments, and a “highway user revenue fund.” In a revised draft, it also sets aside twenty-six licenses for applicants from communities disproportionately affected by the war on drugs.

“We’re obviously ecstatic that we got through this hurdle. But our excitement is tempered by the fact that we still have hearts and minds to win over between now and November 3,” Samuel Richard, executive director of the Arizona Dispensaries Association, told Cannabis Wire.

Polling on legalization in Arizona has been mixed, though support appears to be on the rise. An October Monmouth University poll showed 56% support for legalization, while 36% said they were opposed, up from only 51% support in September.

Mississippi voters will see two medical cannabis measures. Initiative 65A, presented by lawmakers, is a far more conservative approach to regulating medical cannabis. It would restrict legal medical cannabis access to only terminally ill patients. Initiative 65, the grassroots effort, would allow medical cannabis patients who qualify with one of more than twenty conditions to register with the Department of Health and buy medical cannabis at a licensed entity. Initiative 65 would also tax medical cannabis sales at the broader current sales tax rate of 7%, and allow the possession of up to 2.5 ounces of medical cannabis.

Polling suggests that the majority of Mississippi residents support the effort to legalize medical cannabis, though some fear that voters might be confused by seeing two initiatives.

Jamie Grantham, the communications director for the Medical Marijuana 2020 Campaign for Initiative 65, said at a final hearing hosted by the Secretary of State’s office at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in Jackson that she thinks the potential confusion is by design. Grantham also highlighted that medical cannabis has been brought before lawmakers “more than twenty times.”

“When they put 65A to be on the ballot, they robbed the voters a fair up or down vote in an effort to split the votes so that neither measure makes that required threshold to pass,” Grantham said.

Montana’s Secretary of State certified two initiatives for which the New Approach Montana campaign submitted, combined, more than 130,000 signatures in June.

I-190 would legalize cannabis for adult use, while the second, CI-118 would amend the state constitution to “allow the legislature or the people by initiative to establish the legal age for purchasing, consuming, or possessing marijuana,” which I-190 sets at 21.

If voters approve these initiatives, adults age 21 and older will be able to buy and possess up to an ounce of cannabis. Residents would also be allowed to grow four mature plants (and four seedlings) at home. Further, individuals who are “currently serving a sentence” for activities permitted by I-190 will be able to “apply for resentencing or an expungement of the conviction.”

A cannabis retail tax would be set at 20%, and 10.5% of that tax revenue would go toward the general fund, while the rest will be divided among “conservation programs, substance abuse treatment, veterans’ services, healthcare costs, and localities where marijuana is sold.”

Roughly 54% of voters polled said they will (or have) vote “yes” on Initiative 190, which would legalize cannabis for adult use in Montana, while 39% said they already have, or will vote “no,” according to the annual Mountain States Poll.

New Jersey will be perhaps the most widely watched state as voters decide on Public Question 1, the Marijuana Legalization Amendment, which would legalize the possession and use of cannabis for adults 21 and older, and regulate cultivation, processing, and sales of cannabis.

The state’s borders with New York and Pennsylvania, where Governors Andrew Cuomo and Tom Wolf have long urged legalization, could also put pressure on lawmakers in those states to move a legalization bill sooner.

Recent polling by Fairleigh Dickinson University shows that 61% of likely voters plan to cast their votes to legalize.

Days before Election Day, state records showed that the New Jersey state ballot question that would legalize cannabis for adult use pulled in $2.1 million in contributions. Top contributors included American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, and Weedmaps.

Why are voters deciding on legalization, and not lawmakers? Lawmakers voted in December, 49-21-1 in the Assembly and 24-16 in the Senate, to send legalization to voters.

“Putting the issue to a referendum is both sensible and equitable. While not our preferred method of legislating, public questions allow voters to affirm or deny massive shifts in public policy,” Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin said in a statement after the vote.

This came after lawmakers failed in somewhat dramatic fashion last March to agree on legalization. At the time, Senate Majority Leader Stephen Sweeney said that lawmakers changing votes “was like Whac-A-Mole,” and that some lawmakers are “just philosophically opposed.”

“Legalization of marijuana will get passed one way or another. I might have underestimated the challenge in getting this passed. The governor made one hell of an effort himself and we’ll be back at this,” Sweeney said last March.

South Dakota voters could make history as the first in the nation to legalize cannabis for both adult and medical use at the same time.

Voters will decide on Amendment A and Measure 26 at the ballot box. Amendment A is a constitutional amendment that would legalize cannabis for adult use and require the state legislature to craft regulations for medical cannabis and hemp by April 1, 2022. Measure 26 would establish a medical cannabis program.

Brendan Johnson, former US Attorney for South Dakota, spoke during a June news conference on the economic and criminal justice implications of the state’s legalization push.

“I think what we’re going to see in South Dakota on this issue is really a coalition of both Democrats and Republicans coming together and [saying] prohibition does not work. It has not worked in the past. And it’s time, for the interest of our economy as well as the next generation, to get this right,” Johnson said.

The South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws, the campaign behind Amendment A and Measure 26, released a report, based on U.S. Department of Justice’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program data, that showed that found that one out of ten overall arrests were tied to cannabis. Showing the racial disparity in arrests in the state, Native Americans and Black residents were arrested at five times the rate of white residents between 2007 and 2016.

Public Opinion Strategies and marketing firm Lawrence and Schiller recently conducted a poll on behalf of “No Way on A,” a group opposed to adult use cannabis, that found that roughly 70% of voters support Measure 26, which would create a statewide medical cannabis regime, and about 60% of respondents would cast their vote in favor of Constitutional Amendment A, which would legalize adult use cannabis.

Voters in New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota, Montana, and Mississippi will see cannabis legalization, for medical or adult use, on their ballots. And in a twist, South Dakota voters will see both, an historic first. ]]>

CBD Oil Review rates the Hemp Victory Garden Brand with two stars because it qualifies for the Quality and Mission Badges.

User Review

Hemp Victory Garden: 60-Second Summary

Hooray for hemp! Hemp Victory Garden is a nostalgic brand that celebrates the history of cannabis in America, specifically the fighting spirit behind production efforts during WWII. We love their enthusiasm, and their CBD product line isn’t too shabby, with over 20 options that cater to most genres of cannabidiol enthusiasts. If Hemp Victory Garden can get on board with testing protocols and charitable giving, they’ll really have something to celebrate.

Hemp Victory Garden Brand Review

Hemp Victory Garden has a great backstory behind their namesake. They draw from two different campaigns launched by the U.S. government during WWII. The first, the Hemp for Victory campaign, sought to encourage industrial hemp production (previously illegal) to provide American troops with rope, clothing, and other necessities. The second, Victory Gardens, involved the planting of communal produce in yards and parks to help address the food shortage and take the burden off commercial producers.

Thus, Hemp Victory Garden maintains the battle cry for legal hemp production and community involvement in the 21st century as a proud purveyor of CBD oil products. They source their industrial hemp domestically, and utilize both ethanol and CO2 extraction methods. Quality? Check and check.

Hemp Victory Garden offers a lucrative wholesale program, and their online CBD selection contains a nice variety of full spectrum offerings that are reasonably priced. Overall, we like the product line, but Hemp Victory Garden is one of those brands that throws around the word ‘organic’ a lot without the certified ingredients to back it up. Their CBD hash is indeed USDA certified organic, but for the rest of the line, take the term with a grain of salt.

The online catalog includes:

  • Water-soluble CBD oil tinctures (full spectrum)
  • CBD oil tinctures with MCT and hempseed oil
  • CBD gummies – There’s an interesting division here between two gummy products. The first, simply labelled ‘gummies’, is a CBD edible we can totally get behind. These gummies have natural fruit juice for color, all-natural flavors, and organic cane sugar and honey instead of high fructose corn syrup. The second product, ‘CBD-infused gummies’, has the stuff we DON’T like to see: artificial colors and flavors, corn syrup, and titanium dioxide. So, if you’re thinking about getting CBD edibles from HVG, we highly recommend the first option.
  • CBD capsules
  • CBD syrup
  • CBD for pets
  • CBD vape cartridge (clean ingredients)
  • CBD e-liquid (not-so-clean ingredients like PG and artificial flavoring)
  • CBD bath bombs and bath salts
  • CBD hash (certified organic!)
  • CBD hemp roll
  • CBD topicals – The HVG CBD topical line is relatively clean, and we give it an overall grade of B+ (lack of safety tests is a factor here). Most of the options have all-natural ingredients, the marked exception being the CBD face lotion which contains stearic acid, a form of polysorbates. Some of the products also include DMSO, an ingredient we don’t love but that technically can be argued as natural.

Hemp Victory Garden has yet to post any tests for potency or contaminants, and they don’t mention conducting them at all. However, they have a page called ‘Lab Report’ apparently coming soon. Hopefully, this is the case.

Bottom Line – Hemp Victory Gardens uses quality cannabidiol in their CBD product line, and while they use a few artificial ingredients, many are natural. Their nostalgic branding is infectious, and we recommend they get on top of comprehensive testing as a next step

growing hemp indoors

Indoor-Grown Hemp vs. Outdoor-Grown Hemp—Pros & Cons

There are lots of different ways to grow hemp flower. For thousands of years, Cannabis sativa flourished in Central Asia and other parts of the world as a common weed growing under the sun. It’s only recently that humanity has applied its vast botanical knowledge toward hemp flower production, but the results we’ve achieved in so short a time have been nothing short of incredible.

Modern technology has made it possible to tailor indoor horticultural environments for hemp so perfectly that they have transformed this lanky weed into one of the most beautiful, fragrant flowers the human race has ever encountered. There’s truly nothing more fascinating than the relationship that has blossomed between hemp and humans over the last few decades, and in this guide, we’ll help you understand why Secret Nature places such an emphasis on the importance of growing hemp indoors.

Why does Secret Nature prefer indoor hemp production?

First, a word about Secret Nature and what makes our company different from the competition. We founded Secret Nature in 2017 after experiencing success in the California medical and recreational cannabis markets. While other fledgling CBD flower companies were focusing on high-yield, low-quality outdoor crops, we decided to apply the same top-shelf ethos to growing CBD flower that allowed us to dominate the California THC industry.

By growing our CBD-rich hemp flower indoors using the same equipment and methods that result in connoisseur THC-rich cannabis, we’re able to provide the type of quality that CBD consumers are used to enjoying in the hemp industry. All too often, outdoor-grown CBD flower results in disappointment, so we angled our brand to be both the solution to common quality concerns and the ray of hope rekindling faith in the hemp flower industry.

Indoor-grown vs. outdoor-grown hemp

If you’ve taken a look at some of our competitors and compared their offerings to the CBD buds we offer at Secret Nature, you’ve probably scratched your head in puzzlement. Why does Secret Nature flower look so much better than anything other brands have to offer? There are a lot of reasons, actually, but it all starts with our firm commitment to the benefits of indoor hemp.

In most cases, hemp producers grow their crops outdoors in giant fields. When mature, these hemp crops are usually harvested by a machine, and in many cases, outdoor buds are also trimmed by a machine called an auto-trimmer.

It’s certainly less expensive to produce CBD flower this way, but the results are remarkably poor. Outdoor-grown (or “sun-grown”) CBD bud is fluffier and has fewer trichomes. It neither tastes nor smells as good, and it’s more prone to contamination.

Full disclosure: We use extract from sun-grown bud to make our tincture and some of our other non-flower products. In these applications, using outdoor hemp is appropriate since bud used for extracting doesn’t need to be as high-quality or attractive. Brands that market outdoor-grown hemp bud for smoking, however, will always lose out to competitors like Secret Nature who grow their hemp in ideal indoor conditions.

Benefits of growing CBD indoors

For experienced cannabis horticulturalists like ourselves, there are a variety of impressive benefits of growing CBD inside. Like all true artists, we can sometimes be control freaks, but total control is actually ideal when you’re growing hemp. The more variables you can control and adjust during the Cannabis sativa growth cycle, the better your results will be, and here are a couple of examples of the factors you can exert perfect control over when you grow hemp inside:

Light spectrum control

When you cultivate hemp outdoors, you are dependent on the sun for all of the energy your plants need to grow. During the early days of the Cannabis sativa growth cycle (from around May to July), a certain duration and angle of daylight is available, but this light availability changes later in the growth cycle (July to September).

As a result, it’s difficult to provide hemp plants with ideal lighting duration and angles when growing outdoors, and it goes without saying that you’re limited to a single growing season per year. When you grow hemp indoors, however, you can easily control the exact angle your plants receive light from and how long they’re illuminated, and that’s only the beginning of the light control that’s available with indoor hemp cultivation.

The international cannabis community has recently learned that hemp responds better to higher levels of UVA and UVB light , and with the advent of LED grow lights, it’s now possible to provide illumination in the exact frequency that hemp needs to thrive. With the addition of high-pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) indoor hemp grow lights, it’s possible to deliver incredibly high yields indoors while maintaining total control over illumination levels and durations.

Climate control

In addition to providing consistent, targeted lighting at each stage of the growth process, it’s also necessary to control the climate where your hemp is grown to deliver impeccable results. Hemp only achieves its true potential when it’s grown in the right temperature and humidity ranges, and growing hemp indoors also allows you to control CO2 levels, which hemp plants need to grow and thrive.

Outdoor conditions can often be too dry for hemp, which thrives in more humid environments. Dryness, however, is only the beginning of the issues that can occur when you don’t grow hemp in climate-controlled, indoor conditions. When you grow hemp outdoors, it’s also more likely to be exposed to toxins like pesticides and heavy metals, and pests are much more prevalent in large-scale, outdoor operations.

Why indoor-grown hemp flower is superior

Increased quality control naturally leads to better results in any industry, and nowhere is this more clearly the case than in hemp horticulture. Here are some of the benefits that perfected climate control and improved lighting provide in indoor-grown hemp:

Higher cannabinoids

Whether it’s grown hydroponically or in soil, indoor-grown hemp always has higher concentrations of cannabinoids than outdoor-grown bud. With indoor-grown flower, it’s rare to see yields higher than 10% CBD, but here at Secret Nature, we consistently harvest flower with between 20% and 25% CBD. Cannabinoid concentrations this high can only be delivered with indoor-grown hemp, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that we’re Cannabis sativa experts as well.

Better terpene expression

Outdoor hemp plants receive less love and they’re under more stress, so it’s the little things, like terpenes, that disappear the most notably. Even if outdoor-grown hemp yields relatively high concentrations of cannabinoids, it either won’t express very many terpenes or the terpenes it does express will be damaged during processing.

There’s a reason that Secret Nature bud smells and tastes so amazing. It’s cultivated with care in a climate-controlled, perfectly lit indoor environment that’s like paradise for hemp plants.

Denser flower

Because it doesn’t have the energy it needs to grow effectively, outdoor-grown hemp flower is consistently low-density. Density in hemp flower isn’t everything, but if you can see clear through a bud that you’re holding, there’s something wrong. Secret Nature buds are dense and juicy partially because we grow them indoors, and we also use the best nutrients and substrates on the market to make sure our non-intoxicating bud is especially dank.

Fewer contaminants

Growing hemp in soil can deliver great results when you use the right type of soil and nutrients. Hemp that’s grown outdoors, however, is usually just unceremoniously planted in the dirt, and many hemp fields are located in areas where other crops were grown previously. Our modern agricultural model strips soil of nutrients, so the soil in fields that have been recently repurposed doesn’t have what hemp plants need to thrive.

Furthermore, many hemp fields are located in the middle of large agricultural sectors. Even if a hemp farmer doesn’t spray their crops with pesticides, that’s no guarantee their neighbor won’t, and agricultural runoff carries pesticides, fertilizers, and heavy metals along with it. It’s almost impossible to prevent contamination in outdoor environments, but indoor hemp cultivation has the potential to be completely contamination-free.

Better-looking buds

Hemp buds that were grown indoors simply look better. They’re denser and frostier, and they express more of the delicate orange hairs and other colorful components that make Cannabis sativa such a beautiful plant. Especially when you hand-trim your buds like we do at Secret Nature, indoor-grown hemp nugs become such a sight to behold that it almost seems a shame to break them up and smoke them.

Smoother smoke

Because they express more terpenes and cannabinoids while remaining free of contaminants, hemp buds that were grown indoors taste better and produce milder smoke or vapor. Maximizing and retaining the terpenes that flowering hemp expresses is a big part of helping hemp smoke stay smooth, but trimming excess leaves and ensuring that no pesticides or fertilizers made their way into your bud also plays a big role.

Get the best indoor CBD flower with Secret Nature

As our lab results show, Secret Nature indoor-grown CBD flower is free of contaminants, and our cannabinoid concentrations are significantly higher than what you can achieve with even the highest-quality outdoor-grown hemp. That’s the difference industry experience and top equipment make, and we’re always pushing the limits of what’s possible to provide even higher cannabinoid concentrations and even danker non-intoxicating hemp bud.

If you have any lingering questions, check out our FAQ page or contact us for answers, and remember that we’re always standing by to assist you in your quest to find the perfect CBD flower solution for your needs. Take a look through our top-shelf, indoor hemp flower catalog to find a strain that suits your fancy, and remember to use the code “Secret 15” to save 15% at checkout.

marijuana liver disease

Marijuana May Protect the Liver from Alcohol — But Experts Urge Caution

Share on Pinterest Researchers are actively exploring cannabinoids that could be used to prevent or treat liver disease. Getty Images

The negative health consequences of misusing alcohol are becoming clearer every day.

Regularly exceeding the recommended daily limits of one drink for women and two drinks for men is associated with an increased risk for high blood pressure, stroke, and numerous cancers, including liver cancer.

Recently, researchers sought to understand the effects of regular alcohol and cannabis use on the liver.

While it may not be a good idea to combine intoxicating drugs, recent research finds that using alcohol and cannabis regularly has an unexpected effect on your health.

A 2018 study looked at about 320,000 people with a history of both misusing alcohol and using cannabis to discover what effect, if any, using both drugs had on liver health. What they found out was surprising.

Dr. Terence Bukong of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier Research Centre told Healthline: “The primary aim of our study was to assess the impact of cannabis use and the development of alcoholic liver disease.”

“Given that no clinical studies had previously evaluated the impact of cannabis use and the development of progressive stages of alcoholic liver disease in humans, we thought that this was an important research area which needed urgent investigation,” he added.

Dr. Hardeep Singh, gastroenterologist at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California, told Healthline, “Alcohol increases fibrosis in the liver, it has a direct toxic effect to liver cells and causes them to become inflamed. This causes scarring to the liver — advanced scarring of the liver is cirrhosis.”

He emphasized that the effect was very individual, with some people harmed by much lower alcohol intake than others.

But Bukong and team found that regular users of alcohol and marijuana significantly reduced the risk of alcoholic liver disease (ALD), and the heaviest cannabis consumers benefited the most.

The anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis are well-documented. Previous research had already found that cannabinoid receptors in the liver are potential targets for new ways to treat liver disease.

Activating these receptors with cannabis reduces the inflammation that happens early in ALD, slowing the progression of the disease.

However, Bukong cautioned, “Our studies could not ascertain which cannabis strains were used. So we couldn’t determine the cannabinoid content of what each individual ingested. We also couldn’t ascertain the dosage or modes of use, although it’s most likely through smoking.”

Singh emphasized, “However, some of this scarring goes away as the healthy liver regenerates, so cirrhosis can improve if an individual simply stops drinking. But, some scarring will remain.”

“My research group is currently working to discover which cannabinoids or cannabinoid formulations will provide the best therapeutic benefits for specific liver diseases,” Bukong said.

These anti-inflammatory properties are already being used to relieve pain, colitis (inflammation of the colon), multiple sclerosis, and arthritis.

“Our findings revealed that cannabis users were less likely to develop alcoholic liver disease, and cannabis-dependent individuals were the least likely individuals to develop alcoholic liver disease,” said Bukong.

He’s confident that “specific formulations of cannabinoids might soon be used [to] prevent or treat liver disease. My research group is actively working on important cannabis formulations which we hope will be important drug leads for future testing in the prevention and treatment of liver disease from inflammatory, metabolic, and even viral causes.”

Dr. Singh cautioned that one liver disease, hepatitis, is made worse by cannabis.

“Patients with hepatitis C who used cannabis had way more liver scarring than those who didn’t and more progression of their liver disease. Something in the cannabis could actually be increasing fatty liver disease and fibrosis,” he said.

Singh theorizes that some people have sensitivity to cannabis that influences whether they can benefit from it or not. “You can’t just tell the public marijuana is good for your liver, because there may also be people whose liver is harmed by it.”

He said current treatment, in limited cases, consists of “a short course of a steroid drug called prednisolone, for about eight weeks, which can help combat the effects of alcohol on the liver.”

He added that in some people with fatty liver disease, drinking two to three cups of black coffee per day has helped reverse scarring in the liver, although it’s not known which ingredient in coffee is providing the benefit.

According to National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), drinking is responsible for roughly 88,000 deaths per year.

Could cannabis help reduce alcohol dependency to prevent liver disease?

A 2017 study looked at a clinical population of people with depression and alcohol use disorder (AUD) to find that marijuana had no beneficial effect, and could have worsened their depression.

The study concluded that — at least in people with depression — marijuana isn’t an effective treatment.

More evidence that cannabis won’t help wean people with AUD off alcohol is demonstrated in research that found that people treated for AUD, who also used marijuana, relapsed sooner than people who didn’t use marijuana.

There is strong evidence that stimulating the natural cannabinoid receptors in the liver can slow or even prevent the development of cancerous liver tumors. The health benefits associated with marijuana and cannabis products in general has created a lot of buzz.

Singh insists that, right now, too little is known about what effects cannabis compounds have on health.

“There are many substances in cannabis and it could be that one is really bad for the liver while another is beneficial. The take-home point is that more research is needed because we need data on both sides, good and bad,” he said.

The fact remains that cannabis is illegal in many parts of the United States and the world. It’s also important to remember that cannabis, like almost all drugs, is not harmless.

However, in a nod to the growing evidence that cannabis has medical benefit, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it will hold a public hearing May 31 to gather more information on the science, manufacturing, and sale of cannabis compounds.

Recent research finds that marijuana use is associated with a reduced risk of alcohol-related liver damage — including liver cancer.

However, there’s scant evidence that people who drink excessively can use marijuana to overcome a disorder. Research actually shows that it can worsen depression in some people with an alcohol use disorder.

As evidence grows that cannabis and cannabis-derived products can treat or prevent a broad range of health issues, it’s important to remember that marijuana is still illegal in many parts of the world.

Cannabis is a drug, and like any other drugs, has the potential to cause harm if misused.

A recent study shows that certain components in cannabis may help reduce inflammation associated with alcohol use and serious liver health issues. ]]>
