Major medical marijuana trial going on in NZ

first_imgNZ  Herald 13 November 2016Family First Comment: And this is the way it SHOULD happen. Controlled, tested, safe, utilising the non-harmful but beneficial components. But definitely not liberalisation of drug laws.A major medical marijuana trial is underway in New Zealand – testing the effects of a new cannabis gel on epilepsy patients.The Ministry of Health has given the green light for Kiwis to be part of the ground-breaking clinical trial, investigating the effects of the newly-developed cannabidiol gel ZYN002 in stopping or reducing epileptic seizures.Across Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Christchurch, 12-week trials have been going on with the last wave of New Zealanders being recruited before the trial ends in late November. Also running across 10 centres in Australia, a total of 210 adult patients will be involved.Every 12 hours, patients rub the gel into their upper arms and shoulders. However, the randomised test means neither the recruits, or their doctors, will know which of three possible gels they are receiving – high dose, low dose or a placebo – until the trial is over.By being absorbed into the skin, it’s understood the gel’s cannabis-derived contents will hit the brain more quickly and powerfully than oral forms of medicines which must first pass through the gut and liver.READ MORE: read more

Hungry Warner still has ‘a lot to prove’

first_imgHYDERABAD Sunrisers coach, Tom Moody, credits mental resilience and preparation for star opening batsman’s flying start to IPL season.David Warner has been hailed for his mental resilience after returning to the IPL “with a lot to prove” following the expiry of his 12-month ban for orchestrating Australia’s ball-tampering scandal.Warner has made a blockbuster start to the IPL season, hitting 85, 69 and an unbeaten 100 in his three matches with the Sunrisers Hyderabad so far.Tom Moody, the Western Australian all-rounder who was part of Australia’s World Cup winning sides in 1987 and 1999, said Warner was as hungry for success as ever.“He is in a very good place. He has come back full of enthusiasm, full of determination and with a lot to prove,” Moody said, ahead of Hyderabad’s next match, against the Ricky Ponting-coached Delhi Capitals last night.“David Warner – and I think all top players are the same – they have got an unquenchable thirst for the game and to have success in the game. That thirst certainly hasn’t been withdrawn by any means.“He has always had a very positive mindset. He is a very determined and resilient individual.“I think to endure what he and (Steve) Smith and (Cameron Bancroft) had to over 12 months, there has to be a lot of mental toughness.“There has to be a lot of resilience. You could very easily find yourself down for long periods of time.”Moody also hailed Warner’s preparation during his ban to enable him to make a seamless reintroduction to the highest level of cricket he’s played since being suspended.“We’ve seen over his career what makes him unique as a player. Yes, he’s had to sit out of top-flight cricket, international cricket, for 12 months. But David Warner has been preparing for six months, too, for his comeback,” Moody said.“He’s played a couple of franchise tournaments over that 12-month period. He has obviously played club cricket in Sydney as well. Okay, it’s not the same standard, but he’s been preparing more mentally and technically.“His game technically is relatively sound, so it’s the case of getting him sorted mentally and he welcomed the start of this tournament and for him to get back on the horse, so to speak.”last_img read more
