Oxycodone: What You Need To Know
Oxycodone is a popular member of the opioid class. It is widely used in medical settings for acute and chronic pain. Outside of those settings, it has long been used recreationally, with its effects compared to morphine and heroin. The drug is sold either on its own or in combination with acetaminophen (primarily). When acetaminophen is present, the dose must be limited. The general recommendation is to avoid using over 1,000 mg of acetaminophen at once or 3,000 mg per day. An oxycodone overdose can be very dangerous and even deadly, with a notably problematic effect being respiratory depression. It is more risky when combined with other CNS depressants (e.g. benzodiazepines and alcohol.)

Top 9 Cancer-Causing Foods
Learn more about cancer-causing foods here: https://draxe.com/cancer-causing-foods/?utm_campaign=42767&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=cancercausingfoods According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 39.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. In this episode of Ancient Medicine today, Jordan Rubin and I are talking about what foods you need to get out of your pantry and off your dinner plate to help prevent a cancer diagnosis and stay healthy. Ingredients in ultra-processed foods are blamed for everything from cancer and diabetes to reduced kidney function and bone loss, but sometimes even the way we cook otherwise healthy foods puts them in the cancer-causing foods category.

Illicit Drugs: How Do They Work?
Drugs of all varieties are very interesting from a biochemical standpoint, as they produce an incredible array of physiological effects. These effects are due to the shape of each molecule, which determines the cellular components they interact with. Let's learn a bit about some of the common illicit drugs from an academic standpoint.

All rights reserved. Support us on Patreon and get FREE downloads and other great rewards: patreon.com/AlilaMedicalMedia Marijuana, also known as cannabis, among other names, is a preparation of the Cannabis sativa plant - the hemp plant, intended for recreational and medicinal uses. The main psychoactive chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydro-cannabinol, or THC. The Cannabis plant preparation also contains other compounds that are chemically related to THC, called cannabinoids. THC is chemically similar to a class of substances found naturally in our nervous system called endogenous cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids, of which anandamide is best known so far. The endocannabinoids are part of a newly discovered system named the Endocannabinoid system, or ECS. How the ECS works The ECS acts as a modulator of neurotransmission. When the postsynaptic neuron is activated, endocannabinoids are produced, released, and travel back to the presynaptic neuron where they activate cannabinoid receptors. By doing so, they control what happens next when the presynaptic cell is again stimulated. The general effect is a decrease in the release of neurotransmitters such as GABA or glutamate. In other words, the ECS acts as a “brake”, slowing down neuronal activities, preventing neurons from excessive firing. Some examples of ECS functions include: - Pain modulation: cannabinoids suppress pain signal processing, producing pain relief effects. - Stress and anxiety reduction: The ECS has been implicated in the habituation the body’s response to repeated exposure to restraint stress. - Mood regulation: the ECS promotes “good feeling” by inducing dopamine release in the brain reward pathway. This explains the euphoria, or the “high”, experienced by marijuana users. THC mode of action is however different from other drugs: it induces dopamine release INDIRECTLY by removing inhibitory action of GABA on dopaminergic neurons. The ECS is also involved in many more bodily activities, including appetite, memory, learning, sleeping patterns, immune functions and fertility. So how can marijuana be harmful if it does exactly what our body already does to itself? The endocannabinoids are short-acting transmitter substances. They are synthesized on demand and their signaling is rapidly terminated by specific enzymes. Marijuana users consume a much higher amount of THC. THC is also much more stable and can persist in the body for a longer period of time. THC overwhelms the EC system, overriding normal brain functions. Because cannabinoid receptors are present in many parts of the brain and body, the effects of THC are wide-ranging. It can slow down a person’s reaction time, which could impair driving or athletic skills; disrupt short-term memory and higher thought processes, which could affect learning capabilities and judgment ability. Higher doses of THC may also lead to reverse effects. Consuming marijuana by smoking may also damage the lungs to a similar extent as smoking cigarettes. Long - term effects of THC Substantial evidence from animal research indicates that marijuana exposure can cause long-term adverse changes in the brain. Long-term effects of marijuana in human are still debatable mostly due to difficulties of conducting research in human beings. Medical uses of marijuana While recreational use of marijuana is without doubt harmful, the Cannabis plant may be a valuable source of medicines. Currently, the two main cannabinoids from the marijuana plant that are of medical interest are THC and cannabidiol, or CBD. These chemicals are used to increase appetite and reduce nausea in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy. They may also be useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and possibly even treating autoimmune diseases and cancers.

Top 10 Health Benefits of Marijuana
Top 10 Health Benefits of Marijuana In 2737 BC It has been described that during that period, the first direct reference was found in China in the writings of the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung. The first use of cannabis product was used for psychoactive agents. In the writings, the focus was mainly on its power as a medication for rheumatism, gout, malaria, and funny enough, for absent-mindedness. The importance of medicinal value was focused mainly than the intoxication properties. Gradually its use spread from China to India, and then to North Africa, and reached Europe as early as AD 500. Marijuana was listed in United States Pharmacopeia from 1850 till 1942. It was prescribed for different medical uses such as labor pain, nausea, and rheumatism.From 1850s to 1930s cannabis started to grow famous for recreational purposes. As the intake of this drug increased over time, The Controlled Substances Act of 1970 classified it as a Scheduled I Drug. So naturally controversies aroused surrounding the medical use of marijuana. To make it more medical-friendly, its active ingredient THC was synthesized in 1966, and finally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1985. A 1999 a U.S. Government sponsored study by the Institute of Medicine uncovered the beneficial properties of marijuana in certain medical conditions such as nausea caused by chemotherapy, and wasting caused by AIDS. Since 1999, a number of studies have been done to show that smoked marijuana has pain reducing effects. In 1996, California became the first state to legalise the use of marijuana for medical objectives, and about 24 of the states now have some sort of medical marijuana legislation. You will be surprised to know why studies have been done on this herb, and for your favor, here is the list of 10 medical benefits of marijuana you probably never knew.

Psilocybin for Anxiety and Depression: What the Latest Research Shows
A pair of studies published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology have supported psilocybin's apparent efficacy in the treatment of cancer-related anxiety and depression. Based on the results, psilocybin seems to offer immediate and long-lasting positive effects when administered in a controlled setting to a carefully selected population.

But scientific research shows that there are risks, especially for teens. Marijuana affects a person’s judgment and can impair his or her ability to drive." What Is THC?: http://www.livescience.com/24553-what-is-thc.html “THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)." Smoking Too Much Cannabis Causes Dopamine Deficits In The Brain: http://www.iflscience.com/brain/smoking-too-much-dope-causes-dopamine-deficits-brain/ “There’s no doubt that getting high can make you do some pretty dumb stuff, although the scientific community remains split over whether or not smoking too many joints causes lasting cognitive impairment." How Does Marijuana Produce Its Effects?: https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana/how-does-marijuana-produce-its-effects “THC and other cannabinoid chemicals in marijuana are similar to cannabinoid chemicals that naturally occur in the body. These endogenous cannabinoids (such as anandamide; see figure) function as neurotransmitters because they send chemical messages between nerve cells (neurons) throughout the nervous system." The Science of the Endocannabinoid System: How THC Affects the Brain and the Body: http://headsup.scholastic.com/students/endocannabinoid “After several decades of research, scientists studying the effects of marijuana made several important discoveries. Not only did they identify the active ingredient in marijuana, they also discovered where and how it works in the brain—via a new system they called the endocannabinoid (EC) system." Pot Science: Top Marijuana Findings of 2015: http://www.livescience.com/53218-top-marijuana-scientific-findings-2015.html “Researchers who study marijuana made a number of findings in 2015, from learning about the health effects of using the drug frequently and recreationally, to figuring out which diseases and conditions are most likely to benefit from the substance's use."

Legalized Pot: Smoke It or Eat It?: http://www.livescience.com/24714-marijuana-edibles-colorado-washington.html “The recreational use of marijuana is now legal in both Colorado and Washington, which means that (state) law-abiding Americans might soon have the choice to use a substance whose long-term health effects are still not well understood by science." Smoke vs. Snack: Why Edible Marijuana Is Stronger Than Smoking: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/13/smoke-vs-snack-why-edible-marijuana-is-stronger-than-smoking.html “Eating marijuana tends to produce a stronger and much longer-lasting high than smoking it—one that is often scary to inexperienced users and can be disconcerting to regulars. This has created some controversy in Colorado, as cannabis neophytes consume newly legal “edibles” ranging from ganja brownies to pot-infused salsa." How Long Does Cannabis Stay In The Body After Smoking?: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/2287.aspx?CategoryID=53 “It depends on how often and how much cannabis a person smokes and the potency (strength) of the cannabis.

Cbd also known as cannabadiol, is a non-psychoactive (it won't make you feel high) compound found in cannabis. It is one of over 60 different compounds present in cannabis. CBD is usually present in cannabis in high concentrations along with THC (the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive and makes you feel high). It’s non-psychoactive because of its lack of affinity and attraction for CB1 receptors (the receptors that cause one to experience a cerebral high). There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in the human body; CB1 and CB2. Both are naturally found throughout the body but are most common in the brain and immune system. CB1 receptors are responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects. These receptors affect memory, mood, sleep, appetite and pain sensation. CB2 receptors have anti-inflammatory effects and are found in immune cells. Cbd does have a great affinity and or attraction for CB2 receptors making it a great natural anti-inflammatory and immune system enhancer. Cbd benefits? Cbd has been proven to be highly beneficial in the treatment of seizures, neurological conditions such as MS and cerebral palsy and anxiety disorders. Studies have found that cbd can…. Relieve nausea and vomiting making it a great digestive aid Help control and reduce seizures Help Fight tumors and cancer cells (it's a powerful anti-oxidant) Help relieve anxiety and depression Calm and protect the nervous system Promote relaxation and deeper sleep Help reduce stress Help relieve insomnia Anti-inflammatory effects which help reduce swelling Help relieve muscle and joint pain tags: ✓how to buy cbd oil ✓hemp oil benefits ✓cbd oil side effects ✓buy cannabis oil online ✓cbd oil for anxiety ✓side effects from using cbd hemp oil ✓what are the side effects of cbd oil ✓medical cannabis oil ✓marijuana cbd oil ✓legal cbd oil ✓how to use CBD hemp ✓the truth about cbd oil -------------------- ABOUT DEVIN -------------------- Devin Burke is a wellness educator, and passionate health coach.

Pregnancy and Substance Abuse - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- When you are pregnant, you are not just "eating for two." You also breathe and drink for two, so it is important to carefully consider what you give to your baby. If you smoke, use alcohol or take illegal drugs, so does your unborn baby. First, don't smoke. Smoking during pregnancy passes nicotine and cancer-causing drugs to your baby. Smoke also keeps your baby from getting nourishment and raises the risk of stillbirth or premature birth. Don't drink alcohol. There is no known safe amount of alcohol a woman can drink while pregnant. Alcohol can cause life-long physical and behavioral problems in children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Don't use illegal drugs. Using illegal drugs may cause underweight babies, birth defects or withdrawal symptoms after birth. If you are pregnant and you smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs, get help. Your health care provider can recommend programs to help you quit. You and your baby will be better off. Dept. of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health

What's Crystal Methamphetamine Feel Like? Why Is It One Of The The Worlds Most Addictive Drugs?
My experience with smoking methamphetamine (drug) and the high it produced. The meth high is extremely alluring, crystal meth has a extremely intense action on the brain amping dopamine to a alarming level and maintaining that level for a extended period of time. Quitting meth was one of the hardest things I've had to do. Others looked at my addiction with astonishment wondering why I didn't want a sober life. Addictive drugs have a strange way of engaging the user like no other activity. Hopefully this video can shed some light for people who've never tried it before so they can get a small glimpse at why loved ones are using meth. This is not to condone the activity, just to help you understand that meth usage should not be taken personal. Using addictive drugs doesn't mean the person doesn't love you, or that they lack morals, it means that they suffer from a brain disease that anyone who try's this substance would suffer. The statistics are 19/20 people who try meth become addicted. Of those 19/20 only 2% will manage to get sober from meth and stay sober for a extended period of time. If you struggle with crystal meth or know someone struggling feel free to text me or reach out to me on Facebook. Name: Philip Phone: 2147349667 Social Media: https://www.facebook.com/CGKid219/

It’s Time for Substance Abuse to Graduate | David Anderson | TEDxGeorgeMasonU
Drugs and alcohol surround us. Unfortunately, abuse of these substances also surrounds us. Further, each of us knows one or more people about whom we are concerned with their use of drugs or alcohol. The deaths and injuries are, to a large extent, preventable. We have lots of resources at our disposal; what’s important is to harness the passion to prevent and intervene more effectively. David Anderson, Ph.D. serves as a Professor and Director, Center for the Advancement of Public Health, School of Recreation, Health and Tourism, College of Education and Human Development, at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. He serves as project director and researcher on numerous national, state and local projects, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on drug and alcohol issues, community health, and health communications; conducts needs assessments; prepares evaluation and analysis; and assists with strategic planning. Specialty areas include drug/alcohol abuse prevention, strategic planning and mobilization, communication and education, health promotion, and needs assessment and evaluation.

Why Do People Get Addicted to Drugs and Alcohol?
https://www.InspireMalibu.com How Does Addiction Work in the Brain? Drugs and alcohol cause dopamine to surge in the brain's reward and prefontal regions. These areas control pleasure, decision making, judgment, and self-control. That is why we feel pleasure and lose a bit of our self control when we drink or use drugs. When drugs or alcohol are used repeatedly over time, the brain adapts and becomes less sensitive to the effects of dopamine. We build up a tolerance and need to increase the amount of drugs or alcohol to feel the same amount of pleasure. Eventually, repeated use causes the brain to stop functioning normally and the effect of dopamine becomes almost nonexistent. The only way to feel pleasure is by taking more drugs or alcohol. When we reach this stage of use, we become addicted. So why can’t we just decide to stop using drugs and alcohol? Is it because we don’t want to stop? Most people think we chose to start so we can choose to stop and everything will just return to normal. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Once we become addicted to drugs or alcohol, we lose self-control, judgment, decision making, and no longer feel pleasure. Using drugs or alcohol is the only way we can feel normal. What began as a harmless way to feel good, becomes something that we can't control because we have altered the way our brain functions. This is called addiction and it's a disease of the brain that must be treated like other diseases. We can't fix addiction by wishing it to go away any more than we can fix cancer or diabetes. They all must be treated medically. Like other chronic diseases, addiction can't be cured, but with proper treatment it can be successfully managed so people can have a healthy quality of life.

Substance use among 15- to 16-year-old students (ESPAD 2015)
(20.9.2016) Smoking and drinking among 15–16-year-old school students are showing signs of decline, but there are concerns over challenges posed by new drugs and new addictive behaviours. And while overall illicit drug use is stable in this group after previous increases (1995–2003), it continues at high levels. These are among the findings released today in the latest report from the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD). The study, published in collaboration with the EU drugs agency (EMCDDA), is based on a 2015 survey in 35 European countries, including 24 EU Member States.

Smoking is Injurious to health
my channel:- https://www.youtube.com/user/shinith100 my facebook:-https://www.facebook.com/ShinuuSuryanarayanan Smoking is a practice in which a substance is burned and the resulting smoke breathed in to be tasted and absorbed into the bloodstream. Most commonly the substance is the dried leaves of the tobacco plant which have been rolled into a small square of rice paper to create a small, round cylinder called a "cigarette". Smoking is primarily practiced as a route of administration for recreational drug use because the combustion of the dried plant leaves vaporizes and delivers active substances into the lungs where they are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and reach bodily tissue. In the case of cigarette smoking these substances are contained in a mixture of aerosol particles and gasses and include the pharmacologically active alkaloid nicotine; the vaporization creates heated aerosol and gas to form that allows inhalation and deep penetration into the lungs where absorption into the bloodstream of the active substances occurs. In some cultures, smoking is also carried out as a part of various rituals, where participants use it to help induce trance-like states that, they believe, can lead them to spiritual enlightenment. Smoking generally has negative health effects, because smoke inhalation inherently poses challenges to various physiologic processes such as respiration. Diseases related to tobacco smoking have been shown to kill approximately half of long-term smokers when compared to average mortality rates faced by non-smokers. Smoking caused over five million deaths a year from 1990 to 2015. Smoking is one of the most common forms of recreational drug use. Tobacco smoking is the most popular form, being practiced by over one billion people globally, of whom the majority are in the developing countries.[2] Less common drugs for smoking include cannabis and opium. Some of the substances are classified as hard narcotics, like heroin, but the use of these is very limited as they are usually not commercially available. Cigarettes are primarily industrially manufactured but also can be hand-rolled from loose tobacco and rolling paper. Other smoking implements include pipes, cigars, bidis, hookahs, and bongs. Smoking can be dated to as early as 5000 BCE, and has been recorded in many different cultures across the world. Early smoking evolved in association with religious ceremonies; as offerings to deities, in cleansing rituals or to allow shamans and priests to alter their minds for purposes of divination or spiritual enlightenment. After the European exploration and conquest of the Americas, the practice of smoking tobacco quickly spread to the rest of the world. In regions like India and Sub-Saharan Africa, it merged with existing practices of smoking (mostly of cannabis). In Europe, it introduced a new type of social activity and a form of drug intake which previously had been unknown. Perception surrounding smoking has varied over time and from one place to another: holy and sinful, sophisticated and vulgar, a panacea and deadly health hazard. In the 20th century, smoking came to be viewed in a decidedly negative light, especially in Western countries. This is due to smoking tobacco being among the leading causes of many diseases such as lung cancer, heart attack, COPD, erectile dysfunction, and birth defects.[2] The health hazards of smoking have caused many countries to institute high taxes on tobacco products, run ads to discourage use, limit ads that promote use, and provide help with quitting for those who do smoke.

The talk goes into a degree of detail about the short- and long-term effects of psychedelic substances, and seeks to outline the potential these substances have in medicine and self-development. Simeon Keremedchiev comes from a legal background, but his interest in different scientific disciplines and human consciousness led him to attaining a degree in Psychology. He is currently involved in the development and launch of a comprehensive online informational platform, directed at self-development, human consciousness and conscious living. Simeon's work gravitates around the genetic potential which lies within the human genome and our innate ability to unlock it. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction: Drugs & Addiction
In this episode of his new weekly video series, Dr. Aaron Spitz discusses drugs and addiction as causes of erectile dysfunction. Dr. Spitz explains the how drugs and addiction have a negative impact on male sexual function - despite the somewhat popular belief that drugs positively enhance it. Watch the full video for all the details.

You know, since ancient times, people have been fascinated with the idea of a love potion or aphrodisiac, something to increase or enhance their sexual experience. Many people turn to recreational drugs to enhance their sexual experience, but do these substances really enhance the sexual experience? To tell the truth, they do not. In fact, over time, they ruin a man’s ability not only to desire sex, but to have it. I’ll take you through some of the most common substances and how they hit you below the belt. Alcohol is the most widely used substance, and although a little is okay, heavy use will result in erectile dysfunction, also known as “whiskey dick.” Alcohol is a depressant, and it depresses or blunts the nerves that are important in causing erection. Even Viagra won’t work when there’s too much alcohol on board. In fact, very heavy use of alcohol eventually causes the liver to produce too much estrogen—female hormone—and this deteriorates the ability to have erections, takes away sex drive, and makes it hard to reach climax. So, too much Dos Equis and you definitely won’t be the most interesting man in the room. Cigarettes—well, by now you must know that cigarettes are bad for you. But did you know that the nicotine actually constricts the blood vessels that go to the penis? And those blood vessels are really small to begin with, so narrowing them down results in difficulty reaching an erection. This is true, also, of the nicotine in vaping. So either way, where there’s smoke, there eventually won’t be fire in the bedroom. Chronic use of marijuana also has negative effects on sex. Over time, it acts like the female hormone estrogen and results in increased breast tissue, decreased sexual desire, and decreased ability to have erections or reach sexual climax. So yeah, no woman no cry. And too much ganja—no woman. Pain pills. There’s an epidemic of pain pills in this country—Vicodin, OxyContin, etcetera—and pain pills, if taken over a long period of time, actually shut down the central control of testosterone production: the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland gets blunted down and stops stimulating the testicles to produce testosterone, and with low testosterone, you lose your ability to have erections, your desire for sex, and your ability to have sexual climax. Heroin also works at the level of testosterone. It creates an increased amount of molecules that bind up testosterone and take it out of your system—so, similar problem. Amphetamines and cocaine: they seem to increase sexual desire and sexual performance initially, but pretty quickly you burn out. Meth users notice they have increased sexual desire but an inability to keep their erection. They call it “crystal dick.” And after a while, they actually lose their sexual desire, lose their ability to have erections, or to even have sexual climax, and this is true for most classes of amphetamines, and cocaine as well. Fortunately, all these dysfunctions can be reversed and improved, once a person stops abusing these substances. The body really has a remarkable ability to heal itself and repair itself. But the best course of action, of course, is to avoid abusing these substances in the first place, and instead, derive maximal pleasure from the biggest sex organ in your body: your brain. I hope this has been helpful. Don’t forget to continue to follow me on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
Sean Beeman Genesis Pharms Suppositories CSP Feb 2017 Pt4 Delivery Tools
Cannabis Science Pub is a free monthly event sponsored by OG Analytical Lab and other monthly sponsors in Eugene Oregon with the goal of spreading awareness in the burgeoning cannabis industry for the state of Oregon and beyond. Each month features a theme chosen to help bring the industry to the next level and help protect the safety of cannabis consumers. The theme for the month of February 2017 is Delivery Tools for Cannabis. These are all the tools used to consume cannabis products including smoking, vaping, infusing, etc. Part 4 is Sean Beeman from Genesis Pharms and his discussion about some of the best methods for using cannabis for serious conditions. Cannabis isn't just a recreational substance there are methods to use it which don't involve getting "high" or physically altered AT ALL even with high THC extracts which have proven to help normalize issue with chronic pain and help avoid considerable suffering. He also discusses how his company went about developing a cannabis sexual enhancement product for topical application. This involved pH balancing to prevent disruption of vaginal pH balance. This month's Cannabis Science Pub was geared for both those "in the industry" as well as consumers. As a consumer it's nice to know how to consume your medicine regardless of whether you are into smoking or not! Do you agree with the opinions of the professionals on this video?

The science behind Ketamine as a possible cure for depression - Albert Dahan
Like many other drugs, ketamine has multiple effects rendering it suitable for various indications including anesthesia, sedation, acute and chronic pain relief and treatment of therapy-resistant depression. Ketamine is a complex drug with a high affinity for various receptor systems including the NMDA receptor, opioid receptor system and cytokine receptors such as the Innate Repair Receptor system (IRR). The activation of multiple receptor systems is translated into a variety of wanted effects that are useful in clinical practice. Clinical effects include anesthesia due to a dissociation between thalamus and limbic system (ie. Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic), relief of acute pain due to inhibition of excitatory NMDA receptors at spinal and supraspinal sites, relief of chronic pain due to activity at NMDA, opioid and cytokine receptors (e.g. the IRR), rapid antidepressant effects, due to enhancement of synaptogenesis at prefrontal cortical areas. Notorious are ketamine’s side effects including addiction, psychedelic or schizotypical effects (hallucinations, paranoia, anxiety/panic attacks), cardiovascular, liver and urogenital toxicity. In clinical practice the occurrence of psychedelic effect is worrisome and various approaches are being developed to counteract these effects. As a recreational drug or drug of abuse, ketamine is prone to addiction and development of damage to various organs (liver, the urogenital system). Research in volunteers and patients in the LUMC has led to a wealth of information on ketamine’s analgesic and antidepressant behavior which will be discussed. Dr. Dahan is Full Professor of Anesthesiology at Leiden University Medical Center. He graduated from the Free University (VU) in Amsterdam (MD) and Leiden University (PhD). He is head of Research at the Department of Anesthesiology. He founded and heads the Anesthesia & Pain Research Unit since 1995, a non-profit academic institute that performs outcome research in anesthesia and pain management aimed at improvement of care in anesthesia and pain treatment and the wide distribution of gained knowledge, in close cooperation with non-academic partners. The research on opioids and ketamine are among the major research topics of the Anesthesia & Pain Research Unit. With respect to ketamine these studies focus on wanted effects (eg in depression and pain) and (psychedelic) side effects. Prof. Dahan has published over 300 papers in peer-review journals.

Drinking Everclear - Cannabis Oil & Rick Simpson Oil Dosage
FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. The only downside to Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) or many other cannabis and CBD oils is the human ego. Too many times people think that because they have a tolerance for alcohol, pills or even weed that the same tolerance applies to cannabis oils. Too many times people think that if they end every day on a bar stool or begin every day with a bong that new, trendy cannabis products like Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) should have little or no effect on them. This unintentional but repeated over-dosing of cannabis oils creates unnecessary stigma. Recreational users turn their nose up at substances they took too much of then they spread negative stigma about the oil. Medical patients hear the horror stories and refrain from dosing enough... then they think it does not work. Along with providing basic canna-oil dosing information this video applies that same "drug for drug" tolerance to pure grain alcohol. Any daily cannabis user should be able to drink Everclear straight... right? Check out How to make RSO video - https://youtu.be/rbXeAJvBKXs

But artificial sweeteners can be as addictive as recreational drugs, nicotine and alcohol … And it doesn’t help you lose weight. Artificial sweeteners seem to confuse the body’s natural ability to manage calories based on tasting something sweet. People tend to then overeat.

Weed Could Literally Replace These 5 Prescription Drugs. Another investigation distributed in the diary Drug and Alcohol Review found that individuals are progressively substituting physician recommended pharmaceutical, liquor, and unlawful medications with cannabis, flagging a move in general society's comprehension of maryjane's restorative advantages. Of the 473 grown-up cannabis clients overviewed by the Center for Addictions Research of British Columbia, more than 86 percent of respondents detailed surrendering at least one of the substances for pot, with the larger part (80.6 percent) renouncing pharmaceuticals for the non-lethal option. Those under 40 were likewise more inclined to substitute every one of the three for cannabis, showing its dynamic interest for both recreational and restorative purposes. Individuals experiencing perpetual torment may be especially disposed to utilize cannabis rather than physician endorsed prescription in light of late investigations that set up its viability at treating torment, enhancing the nature of patients' lives, and representing no danger of genuine antagonistic symptoms.
