OPIOID CRISIS: CURRENT BLOGS
PTSD: CURRENT BLOGS
By Kim Poole November 19, 2021This story originally appeared on The CannigmaAmid speculation on whether cannabidiol (CBD) can influence the intoxicating effects of d9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a new study supports this idea, along with another unexpected and interesting finding related to a serious mental health disorder. Published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology in September 2021, researchers concluded that CBD could lessen the psychoactive effects of THC when taken together. 1 The study found that consuming 65mg of THC was less intoxicating when combined with CBD in a 2:1 ratio than when taken alone, suggesting that CBD places a ceiling on some of the effects of THC. This is especially relevant for medical cannabis patients, who may need to medicate around the clock and for anyone who does not want the high for whatever reason.
Study Links Psychedelic Use With 55% Decrease In Daily Opioid Use
Following bleak mortality data published this week by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control that saw national overdose deaths exceeding 100,000 for the first time over a 12 month period, a new study linking psychedelic use and decreased opioid misuse is providing some hope.
While there’s certainly no magic pill to cure addiction and emotional ills, psychedelics can at times position people in the right frame of mind to reach for that lofty goal. And now scientific data is supporting the notion that psychedelics may decrease opioid dependence.

As you may have seen on the landing page of this website, 100 Million Ways and Weed for Warriors have agreed to collaborate on multiple fronts.
The Weed For Warriors’ Project is a social justice lifestyle brand supporting holistic rehabilitation for veterans through Community-based projects, proactive Care advocacy, Cannabis education and Compassion. WFW urges change for the empowerment of the people.
As 100MW examines the impact of cannabis-as-medicine on opioid use, to extend the research question to the impact of cannabis on PTSD symptoms, like anxiety and depression, and improve their quality of life. We are enlarging this online community to support people chronic pain and PTSD who are interested in cannabis-as-medicine as a wellness treatment option.
Together WFW and 100MW will bring services to online community members to help improve day-to-day quality of life. WFW will continue to drive for policy change to de-schedule cannabis at the federal level – to remedy social-legal inequities and support veterans' rights and 100MW will continue to support clinical data collection to inform the best uses of cannabis-as-medicine to treat diseases and disorders.
