"Researchers now are trying to nail down CBD's effects.⠀

'I think there's good evidence to suggest that CBD could be an effective treatment of anxiety and addiction" and other disorders, says Dr. Esther Blessing, a psychiatrist and researcher at New York University. "But we need clinical trials to find out.'⠀

Now, with funding from the National Institutes of Health, Blessing and group of collaborators are about to begin a clinical trial to test whether CBD can help people with post-traumatic stress disorder who also have moderate or severe alcohol use disorder.⠀

During the study, 50 otherwise healthy participants will be given either 400 milligrams of CBD daily, or a placebo. The goal is to see if the participants who take CBD end up drinking less and whether this leads to an improvement in PTSD symptoms. The participants will be given a pharmaceutical-grade CBD, which is more reliable in strength and purity than the supplements that are currently available for sale to the public.⠀

Another Phase 2 clinical trial (to test efficacy and side effects) is exploring whether CBD might help prevent relapse in opioid abusers by reducing craving for the drug. The study's led by Yasmin Hurd, a neuroscientist who directs the Addiction Institute at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine."⠀

"The legislation, which Schumer’s office expects will be released within the next week, has six main points. First, it would remove marijuana from Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of controlled substances, which would end federal prohibition and leave it up to states to decide how to regulate the drug. Schumer stopped short of calling it legalization, but de-scheduling would essentially make marijuana legal at the federal level.⠀

His bill would also create some funding for minority and women-owned marijuana businesses, provide money for research into overall effects of marijuana and it’s specific effect on driving impairment. And lastly, it would “maintain federal authority to regulate marijuana advertising in the same way it does alcohol and tobacco,” which Schumer said is to make sure marijuana businesses aren’t targeting children with their ads."⠀

"John Boehner, of all people, is now a proponent of cannabis perfectly illustrates the ironies of the way Americans think about weed as the industry slinks out of the gray market. The people positioning themselves to profit from the nominally legal weed boom are overwhelmingly white, but the people who continue to be punished for its illegality — in part, due to policies that Boehner has supported — are most likely to be black.⠀

Marijuana currently occupies a curious, paradoxical position in American life. As cannabis use has lost much of its stigma — nearly six in 10 Americans believe it should be legalized — it has also become an ever-larger focus of drug enforcement policy: today, more than half of all drug arrests in the United States are marijuana arrests.⠀

But even before cannabis gained wide acceptance, the stigma attached to —and its consequences — have never been evenly distributed. As we've explored on the Code Switch podcast, anti-immigrant lawmakers in the early 1900s both exaggerated the cannabis's deleterious effects and began purposely using the name marihuana in order to link the drug's dangers with Mexicans. ⠀

And those disproportionate arrests for weed-related crimes mean that Black people with experience in the underground weed economy are much more likely to be locked out of participating in the burgeoning legal marijuana industry, since investors are wary of getting into bed with people who have been caught. Black people bore the brunt of the drug war; now they're now being shut out of the weed boom.⠀

Of course, absolutely none of these obstacles is a problem for the lachrymose John Boehner, a millionaire who was until recently one of the most powerful elected officials in the country. From that perch, he was uniquely positioned to change the legalization debate in Washington; he voted instead for the status quo."⠀

"For an increasing number of athletes, two of the commonwealth’s signature features — the Boston Marathon and legal marijuana — make for a brilliant combination. Athletics and pot might seem like an odd mix for the uninitiated, but it’s common enough to have generated a term, “cannathlete,” which you can find trending on twitter. And while it’s impossible to say just how common the practice is, high achieving cannathletes are coming out of the “cannabis closet.”⠀

Rebecca Kelley says that adding cannabis to her training helped her qualify for the Boston marathon in 2016. But she’d never combined cannabis and running before her training to qualify for Boston. “I don't necessarily consider cannabis a performance enhancing drug in terms of like, ‘Oh, I could have never qualified without it,’" she said. "I do think it really helps me with some of the motivation aspects and the post workout care regimen.”⠀

Greg Gerdeman, who has studied the pharmacology of cannabis for more than 20 years says its use “for an endurance sport is a real natural fit." It can also provide relief for the nausea that can hit athletes after a long run. "Cannabis is a good anti-inflammatory," he added. "It has analgesic properties, pain inhibiting effects.”⠀

Some runners say it helps them with their focus and rhythm, or just makes a race more interesting. As more athletes turn to cannabis for a variety of reasons, they look to different strains of marijuana for those desired effects."⠀

"Touting the benefits of ‘being present’, some parents claim marijuana helps with their job – but the facts are uncertain.⠀

An Oregon mother posted a photo last year of herself breastfeeding her baby while she took a bong hit. Naturally, the image went viral.⠀

Amid the expected backlash, some much milder criticism came from Jenn Lauder, an Oregon cannabis activist who co-founded Splimm, a newsletter on pot and parenting, with her husband. Lauder chided the breastfeeder for exposing the baby to smoke and for the “optics” of the image.⠀

“That mom could have made better choices,” Lauder told me recently. The former teacher has said that while she did not use cannabis when pregnant with her daughter, she resumed shortly after giving birth, and while breastfeeding, to mitigate postpartum depression.⠀

Yes, it’s jarring to see a woman in a quintessential act of motherhood, with her face in a bong. But the reality is some parents believe cannabis improves their child rearing. That number is bound to increase as cannabis use becomes more acceptable with legalization. And vape pens and edibles make it easy to do discreetly.⠀

No cannabis brand I’m aware of directly markets to pregnant women, but scores promote themselves as health and “wellness” products, a message pregnant woman can absorb as easily as anyone else.⠀

Aside from the more fraught area of breastfeeding, marijuana, as cannamoms and cannadads see it, relieves the tedium of parenting while helping them engage with their children. The phrase that keeps coming up is “being present”.⠀

The drug’s complex legal status makes it difficult for researchers to study the phenomenon of parents who use cannabis or what it might mean for the children. As with so much else in the marijuana world, supporters see parenting and interactions with other parents as an opportunity to de-stigmatize weed and draw a favorable comparison with alcohol."⠀

What are your opinions on using Cannabis and parenting? 🤔⠀
