Poland has legalized medical marijuana! But…

The Republic of Poland has legalized medical marijuana, which can help to treat symptoms such as epilepsy, chronic headaches and nausea caused by chemotherapy.

The law allowing Polish doctors to prescribe marijuana preparations was adopted by the Diet in the preceding week. However, it appears that it only works on paper, because at present no marijuana-based preparation is registered in the Republic of Poland. The Ministry of Health assures that it is working on a regulation that will determine what documents will be needed to release it.

Cannabis helps in the treatment of diseases such as drug-induced epilepsy, but there are many reports of people who use marijuana in various forms to treat other diseases, including cancer.

Polish pharmacists, however, say that the Act is in fact dead, because the first preparations will appear in Poland at the earliest in a year. This is due to the fact that even if the Ministry of Health determines what documents are needed to commence the marketing authorization process, the politicians have given themselves over 200 days to take over.

Another problem is the prescription of curative marijuana, which can only be written by a medical specialist. They have special prints on which they can prescribe such a preparation.However, according to the authors of the law, marijuana may also be prescribed by a family doctor. It is not known for a moment how it will actually look like because there are more questions than answers in the entire bill.

In the original proposal, the Act assumed that the plants from which the preparations will be grown will be grown in Poland. However, MEPs have made amendments to make ready plants to be imported from the Netherlands or Canada. This poses another problem, because the lawmakers state that the breeders will not be able to provide sufficiently high levels of marijuana.

And it may be needed a lot because only people suffering from drug-resistant epilepsy in Poland are more than 300,000, and if you add to those who suffer from other conditions that can also be treated with marijuana, the demand can increase drastically.

Authors of the original draft law on medical marijuana are already thinking about amendments to this law, which would include a provision permitting the cultivation of cannabis in Poland.However, if MEPs refuse to plant the plant in the country, the medical marijuana will simply be too expensive to be widely used. According to the calculations, the monthly therapy will cost up to 2 thousand. What can not afford most patients?

Sami patients in Poland despite the fact that the law does not really give them, they enjoy it, because so far law has treated them as criminals. According to the makers of the law, including deputy Peter Liroya Marc, the full legalization of medical marijuana is still a long way off.

DIY Massage For Active Bodies

“Dear Body, Im sorry Ive neglected you, not giving you the rest you need, I promise to rejuvenate you so you can function at your best level. – Me”

On an active level and on a sedentary level of being at a desk all day, our muscles need to be nourished with not only the foods we fuel ourselves with, but with massage – as it increases circulation and just feels dam good to be rubbed on! Especially for active bodies, massages ease pain and looses up the knots. And for beginners, they’re most likely experiencing an increased amount of pain due to their muscles unaccustomed to the depletion that’s happening. But … massages and regular bodywork can be pricey, so let’s go discuss what types of oils to use and how we can DIY massage in between professional bodywork sessions.

More specifically here, I’m referring to Ayurvedic Massage known as “Abhyanga”. It is said to enhance overall well-being and restores the balance of your doshas. If you’re unfamiliar with the Ayurvedic lifestyle, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine both have their roots in Ayurveda and is a combination of our 5 elements Air, Space, Water, Fire, and Earth encompassing everything around us from our Minds, Environment, Nutrition, Bodies and Interactions. It is also known as the sister science to Yoga. (We will explain this more in a blog to come).
