Qualifying Condition Focus

Tourette’s Syndrome is pending approval to become a qualifying condition for the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program. Tourette’s Syndrome is a nervous system disorder that causes sudden movements or sounds, called tics. The two types of tics are motor tics and vocal tics. Motor tics include arm or head jerking, blinking, making a face, mouth twitching or shoulder shrugging. Vocal tics include shouting, grunting, barking, yelping, clearing throats, repeating someone’s words and others.

 

Anecdotal evidence shows cannabis
to be helpful in treating symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome.

More than 100,000 Americas have mild to severe Tourette’s Syndrome. The cause of Tourette’s syndrome is still widely unknown, but it’s thought that genes play a role in the disease. This syndrome has been linked to different parts of the brain, one of which is known as the basal ganglia, which helps control body movements. Treatment for Tourette’s Syndrome include pharmaceuticals that work with dopamine levels in the brain, blood pressure medicine and antidepressants.

Anecdotal evidence shows cannabis to be helpful in treating symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome.
Muller-Vahl et. al found that cannabis sativa and THC had beneficial influences on the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome including a significant reduction of motor and vocal tics and obsessive-compulsive disorder using the self-rating scale.

Raising Awareness and Helping The Community Around Us

CSATC has been active these past months, raising awareness of medical cannabis and helping out the local community. We discussed different aspects and benefits of medical cannabis with Bancroft NeuroRehab, a rehabilitation and assisted living center for those with neurological disorders, and HollyDELL, an organization that serves thousands of children and adults with Cerebral Palsy and other physical and medical challenges. We believe that organizations like these can add cannabis to their broad spectrum of treatment options, and we will continue advocating to increase patients’ access to cannabis for its amazing palliative effects!
 

We have also recently contributed to the Bellmawr War Memorial that will open on Veterans Day and to our local Bellmawr Police Department. Our donation to Bellmawr PD was for a heroin field tests to verify a person’s possession of the drug.

What patients are saying:

Blueberry is the strong indica strain you’ve been looking for.
Producing a heavy and sustained body high, it reduces pain within the body and mind.In my case, it is a lot of gastrointestinal and cervical spine pain. Blueberry takes care of all of it! If anxiety has its grip on you,
let this strain help you relax as it couch locks and slowly sedates you.

Tranquil is the only word that I can truly describe this strain.
Definitely a nigh strain! My new favorite for sleep!
