Cannabis Misconceptions Still Common Among MS Clinicians Nancy Melville June 05, 2020 https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/931872?nlid=135873_425&src=WNL_mdplsfeat_200609_mscpedit_psyc&uac=292598PZ&spon=12&impID=2413707&faf=1   Despite the ever-increasing acceptance of medical cannabis and its notably common use in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), clinicians treating those patients still may be poorly informed about risks, benefits, regulations, and proper uses, experts say. "There is evidence of a 'clinical void,' with clinicians on one side and people with MS and other conditions on the other that doesn't usually exist regarding therapies that people with MS are using," said Allen C. Bowling, MD, PhD, director of the NeuroHealth Institute and clinical professor of neurology at the University of Colorado, in Aurora. His [...]

Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ?, Aurélien Bernard, Newsweed.fr, 12 mai 2010

Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ? Publié le 12 mai 2020 NEWSWEED.fr , Par Aurélien BERNARD https://www.newsweed.fr/comment-terpenes-affectent-effets-variete-cannabis/     Lorsqu’on entend le mot terpène, la première idée qui vient à l’esprit est l’odeur d’une plante. La recherche scientifique a pourtant montré que les terpènes remplissent plus qu’une unique fonction sensorielle. Les terpènes produisent ainsi des effets spécifiques sur le corps, qu’ils soient anti-inflammatoires, antibactériens, relaxants ou anxiolytiques. C’est d’ailleurs aussi pour cette raison que certaines variétés procurent un sentiment de calme et de bien-être, alors que d’autres favorisent l’énergie. Les terpènes s’insèrent ainsi complètement dans l’effet d’entourage, qui suppose que les composants [...]
