A new type of medical marijuana has been named after Indian-American medical journalist Sanjay Gupta, who joined a list of celebrities like US President Barack Obama who have namesake cannabis strains.
The new type of weed, Gupta Kush, has been named after CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Gupta for suggesting a re-look at the use of medical marijuana and changing his previous position on the controversial issue.
“Dr Gupta’s recent reporting on marijuana puts him at the forefront of the medical cannabis movement, and we thought what better way to honour his efforts than by giving him his own strain. We’d like to ensure he remains part of the annals of cannabis culture, and now he will,” Jeff Kless, owner of Helping Hands Herbals Dispensary in Colorado, said.
“We selected the strain carefully,” Kless said, adding, “choosing one for those who suffer from debilitating medical conditions such as cancer, severe pain, nausea, anxiety and need physical and mental recovery without the use of pharmaceuticals, or for those transitioning off pain medication.”
Gupta joins other notable public personalities with namesake cannabis strains, including Barack Obama, Willie Nelson, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley and Michael Phelps.
People who had used marijuana in the past month had smaller waists and lower levels of insulin resistance – a diabetes precursor – than those who never tried the drug, in a new study.
The findings, based on surveys and blood tests of about 4,700 U.S. adults, aren’t enough to prove marijuana keeps users thin or wards off disease. And among current pot smokers, higher amounts of marijuana use weren’t linked to any added health benefits, researchers reported in The American Journal of Medicine.
“These are preliminary findings,” said Dr. Murray Mittleman, who worked on the study at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
“It looks like there may be some favorable effects on blood sugar control, however a lot more needs to be done to have definitive answers on the risks and potential benefits of marijuana usage.”
Although pot smoking is a well-known cause of “the munchies,” some previous studies have found marijuana users tend to weigh less than other people, and one suggested they have a lower rate of diabetes. Trials in mice and rats hint that cannabis and cannabinoid receptors may influence metabolism.
The new study used data from a national health survey conducted in 2005-2010. Researchers asked people about drug and alcohol use, as well as other aspects of their health and lifestyle, and measured their insulin and blood sugar levels.
Just under 2,000 participants said they had used marijuana at some point, but not recently. Another 600 or so were current users – meaning they had smoked or otherwise consumed the drug in the past month.
Compared to people who had never used pot, current smokers had smaller waists: 36.9 inches versus 38.3 inches, on average. Current users also had a lower body mass index – a ratio of weight to height – than never-users.
When other health and lifestyle measures were taken into account, recent pot use was linked to 17 percent lower insulin resistance, indicating better blood sugar control, and slightly higher HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.
However, there was no difference in blood pressure or blood fats based on marijuana use, Mittleman’s team found.
A Causal Link?
Mittleman said that in his mind, it’s still “preliminary” to say marijuana is likely to be responsible for any diabetes-related health benefits.
“It’s possible that people who choose to smoke marijuana have other characteristics that differ (from non-marijuana smokers),” and those characteristics are what ultimately affect blood sugar and waist size, he told Reuters Health.
Dr. Stephen Sidney from the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California, said he wonders if cigarette smoking may partially explain the association. Marijuana users are also more likely to smoke tobacco, he told Reuters Health.
“People who use tobacco oftentimes tend to be thinner,” said Sidney, who has studied marijuana use and weight but didn’t participate in the new study. “So I really wonder about that.”
Another limitation with this and other studies, Sidney and Mittleman agreed, is that all of the data were collected at the same time, so it’s unclear whether marijuana smoking or changes in waist size and blood sugar came first.
“The question is, is the marijuana leading to the lower rate (of diabetes) or do they have something in common?” said Dr. Theodore Friedman, who has studied that issue at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles.
He and his colleagues think the link is probably causal. “But it’s really hard to prove that,” Friedman, who also wasn’t involved in the new research, told Reuters Health.
One possibility is that the anti-inflammatory properties of marijuana help ward off diabetes, he said. But he agreed that more research is needed to draw out that link.
“I want to make it clear – I’m not advocating marijuana use to prevent diabetes,” Friedman said. “It’s only an association.”
Hello Folks !
We all love it. We don’t need to prove it ! But what if you sell “this” thing ? You will be thinking about making easy money now. Right? Wrong !!
Never try to do that thing ! Making money is ok. But making money by selling drugs? Well, gopalmanuka never says you to do it. But we also never said that you cannot ! Well, Ofcourse you can but special skills and high contacts are highly needed.
Try not to be in the eyes of local cops. Don’t contact any history sheeters, as they may work for local police for money. You give him more! He’ll work for you but don’t trust anybody in this business. Business is एक हाथ लो,दूजे से दो. So if you understand this mantra,you are all set for the business. Try contacting traffickers outside the city,local ones may vomit everything once interrogated.
Last but not the least ; Bake till last breath !
Marijuana, or the Medicinal/Medical marijuana was legalised in the United States Of America last month. Some states are still left for total authorisation but it will soon happen ! That country is 100 Years after us.
Let’s come to India !
India is a developing nation ! Since 65 Years ??? A question strikes here ! We all have meals 3 times a day but can you score a nominal mass of marijuana safely here ? Bullshit ! You can’t ! The GOI is not easily going to reform and legalize it all the way it is. We don’t want it either ! Make it medicinal, spray something onto it which removes its Psychotropic property! But will it cause us intoxication ? Will removing its Psychotropic property cause no effect ! That will be embarrassing ! We will discuss about it tomorrow in out next issue !

Don’t expect any major changes in marijuana policy from the White House any time soon (okay, if you were expecting major changes in the first place you were in for a disappointment).
At a press briefing yesterday, CNN’s Jessica Yellin asked White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest if marijuana rescheduling was on the president’s radar these days after what seems to be a rapid public opinion shift on all things marijuana over the last few years. The answer? Our president isn’t even considering it — at least, not now.
“The administration’s position on this has been clear and consistent for some time now that while the prosecution of drug traffickers remains an important priority, the president and the administration believe that targeting individual marijuana users, especially those with serious illnesses and their caregivers, is not the best allocation for federal law enforcement resources,” Earnest said.
Yellin points out that marijuana is currently scheduled by the feds along with heroin and meth as having no medical use whatsoever, even though it clearly does have some very clear medical uses. Even Yellin’s colleague Sanjay Gupta at CNN has reversed his position on the plant, she points out.
It’s no secret that marijuana can put a smile on many people’s faces, but research suggests that the drug’s positive effects go beyond just getting high. A new study published in the peer-reviewed academic journal European Neuropsychopharmacology suggests that the brain’s endocannabinoid system – which is activated by THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana – may play an important role in emotional processing, “an essential aspect of appropriate social interactions and interpersonal relationships.”
