TREATMENT WITH THE USE OF

MARIJUANA

By: Elsha Ghina Novtaress

What is marijuana?
Marijuana is the word used to describe the dried flowers, seeds and
leaves of the Indian hemp plant. On the street, it is called by many other
names,
such
as:astro
turf, bhang, dagga, dope, ganja, grass, hemp, home grown, J, Mar
y Jane, pot, reefer, roach, Texas tea and
weed.
Hashish is a related form of the drug, made from the resins of the Indian
hemp plant. Also called chocolate, hash or shit, it is on average six times
stronger than marijuana.Cannabis describes any of the different drugs
that come from Indian hemp, including marijuana and hashish.
Regardless of the name, this drug is a hallucinogena
substance which distorts how the mind perceives the world you
live in.
The chemical in cannabis that creates this distortion is known as
THC.(Tetrahydrocannabinol). The amount of THC found in any given
batch of marijuana may vary substantially, but overall, the percentage of
THC has increased in recent years.

6 EFFECTS LONG-TERM USE OF


MARIJUANA (CONTRARY
EVIDENCE)
1. Abuse / Addiction
Chronic marijuana use can lead to physical and
psychological dependence, and experience withdrawal
symptoms shortly after stopping use. These symptoms may
occur after chronic use for at least 3 weeks. These symptoms
peaked on day 4, and began to be resolved within 2 weeks
calculated from the last time use traditional cannabis.
characteristic withdrawal symptoms are restlessness,
decreased appetite, nausea, irritability and sleep disruption
(Pope & Yurgelum-Todd, 1996). In general, these symptoms
will only make the user feel uncomfortable but no threat to
life.

2. Cognitive Dysfunction
Chronic Cannabis Syndrome, better known by the term
Amotivational Syndrome is cognitive impairment in chronic users
which resulted in a decrease in the ability to plan or get the
purpose of life; then causes the user is placed in a job that
requires only low-level cognition.
Research on humans and animals indicate that the use of
cannabis at an early age long impact on cognition and increase
the likelihood neuropsikis disorders (Schneider, 2008). Wilson et
al. (2000) compared the long-term marijuana users who start use
a marijuna at the age of 17 years and below 17 years and above.
In marijuana users which began at the age of 17 years and below
shows the low percentage of gray matter (neurons and dendrites,
where the thought process occurs) and the high percentage of
white matter (myelinated axons) compared with whole brain
volume.

3. Mental illness
Many studies show that there is a correlation between the use of cannabis with
high risk of psychosis and some studies have found a link between the dose
response of psychosis (Fergusson, Poulton, Smith, & Boden, 2006; Zammit,
Allebeck, Andreasson, Lundberg, & Lewis, 2002). after browsing through the
available evidence, of the many results of published research can be concluded
that cannabis use may increase the risk of psychosis in young people, but it
has a significant effect on those who have a predisposition psychosis.

4. Cancer
Research in this area manunjukan many contradictions. Sidney, Quesenberry,
Friedman, & Tekawa (1997) found that smoking marijuana is not at all
associated with an increased risk of cancer. Meanwhile, in different places,
Fligiel (1997), found that histological and molecular changes in the bronchial
epithelium similar between smoking cannabis with tobacco smoking. The
conclusion that can be drawn while, there have not been enough studies to
provide an evaluation that is strong enough to suggest that smoking marijuana
associated with cancer risk.

5. Reproduction
One study found that marijuana use is associated with decreased
testosterone levels, sperm count and sperm motility in chronic users /
intensive cannabis (Kolodny, Masters, Kolodner, & Toro, 1974). One result,
until recently known as a substance that marijuana can cause male
infertility. In fact, no study has ever seen a link between the use of
cannabis and male fertility.

6. Respiratory Effects
Gong, Fligiel, Tashkin, and Barber (1987) showed that smoking marijuana
rolled 3-4 in the same day with a 20-rolled tobacco smoked in a day and
cause cough, wheeze, and sputum production. Recent research has failed
to find a link between long-term marijuana pengggunaan with FEV1 / FVC
(forced expiratory volume in the first secondsetelah take a deep breath),
diffusion capacity, or hyperactive breathing as occurs in tobacco smokers
(Tetrault, Crothers, & Moore, 2007).

CBD protection against Ebola


virus
There is good scientific evidence that cannabis
compounds in particular Cannabidiol the possibility to
control the immune system and protection from viral
infection. Cannabis has been known as inhibitors of fungi
and bacteria and is considered as a new class of
antimicrobials for work differently from other
antimicrobials.
Ebola is a virus RNA complex organism that causes cells
to "eat" pinocytosis [events liquid intake into the cell] and
then the virus hijacks the cell to replicate itself.
Replication involves can involve many mutations in the
RNA code that would make it difficult if not impossible to
make an effective vaccine. There is a US patent that
shows evidence that the anti-viral activity of compounds.

Usually the virus-infected cells will produce a surface protein


that is identified as a foreign body and the immune system will
attack the cells were infected with this. Ebola virus infection
causes the cells to produce proteins that hide the virus from
the immune system. This mechanism allows the viral RNA to
hide the infected cells by the immune system to protect dr.
The cause of death by this virus is the immune system
responds to the virus inveksi. This is the cause of mortality and
morbidity from this inveksi. Furthermore, the virus triggers the
immune cells to release enzymes [cytokines: a protein made
by cells that affect the behavior of other cells] that they hold.
The release of this enzyme causes lymphocytes [a type of
white blood cells in the immune system of vertebrates being]
the other to release more cytokines. This process is also called
a cytokine storm.

Small blood clots in the blood vessels of the socalled DIC [Disseminated Intravascular
Coagulation] cause coagulopathy [blood clotting
disorders or excessive bleeding] where blood
would not clot simultaneously with DIC [bleeding
and clotting occurs at the same time]. Symptoms
of shock against toxins [Toxic Shock Syndrome]
occurs when cytokines are released causing blood
vessels to dilate in such a way.Marijuana
compounds proven to reduce and prevent against
toxic shock and DIC (2)

against toxic shock and DIC

Ebola virus also attacks the attachment of the cells caused by killer
cells immune to release VEGF [vascular endothelial growth factor:
signaling proteins produced by cells that menstimulasivasculogenesis
and angiogenesis. It is part of a system that restores oxygen supply to
tissues when blood circulation is inadequate] which resulted in the
destruction of the tight relationship between the cells and lead to
leaking of fluid between cells until bleeding.
Cannabis compounds can inhibit VEGF processes that occur in the
relationship between cells. Obstructing VEGF by cannabis compounds
may prevent bleeding such cells.Cannabis compounds can inhibit
VEGF and inhibit glioma brain tumors [type of tumor that begins in the
brain or spinal cord]. Very reasonable to estimate that cannabis
compounds that inhibit VEGF and other cytokines when Ebola virus
attack will help the survival of this deadly virus. Stopping the release
of cytokines aka a major feature of the treatment of this deadly
disease.

The discovery and application of the endocannabinoid


Signalling System is proven to control almost all of the
disease to humans. Compounds of medicinal marijuana
emerge as a new classification that is capable of treating
infections from bacteria, fungi, and viruses are different which
is actually the way it works is not found in the classification of
other drugs.
Cannabis compounds are clearly shown to have activity of
killer viruses including Hepatitis C and HIV. Regulate
marijuana compounds inhibiting the immune response to
infection. Excerpts from US patent is evidence that cannabis
compounds can inhibit many different types of viruses of viral
replication process itself. The patent also proves that cannabis
compounds can decrease the immune response stimulated by
virus infection.

The claims made in US Patent is as follows:(refer to the patent


for the proper citation and clear)
- A method for treating HIV disease by directly inhibiting viral
replication process using derivative cannabidiol [CBD]
- Compounds CBD cannabis which is used to treat HIV disease
by directly inhibiting the virus replica
- A method for treating diseases of the immune function that
produces an infection such as Simian Immunodeficiency Virus,
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, Herpes Simplex virus, EpsteinBarr virus, cytomegalovirus, hepatitis B and C, influenza virus,
rhinovirus and inveksimikrobakteri use Cannabidiol derivative
claim
- US Patent this, proving that cannabis compounds to treat
disorders of the immune system called a cytokine storm
caused by different viruses

- In the description, the patent US proved that the regulation


of the immune system may be the key to the survival of
people with HIV and can be applied to the survival of
patients with Ebola. The process of direct lethal marijuana
compounds [virus infection] proved in HIV infection but not
on Ebola. However, inhibition of VEGF is essential to
prevent leakage of endothelial [lining cells that line blood
vessels and lymph, liver, and other body cavities] and
bleeding.
Because marijuana is very safe to eat, especially under the
supervision of a doctor, the authors believe that snagat
important for the medical community to begin human trials
for the sake of the survival of the Ebola virus survival
regardless of political obstacles.
