Moving for Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis helped relieve my PPMS when I lived in California. Here in Florida I have no legal access to it and my body is getting worse.

Scientists target new painkillers from spider venom

Scientists in Australia have made an important discovery about spider venom that could lead to a new class of painkillers.

Spiders use their venom to immobilize or kill their prey. Researchers from the University of Queensland isolated seven peptides—the building blocks of proteins—in spider venom that blocked the molecular pathway responsible for sending pain signals from the nerves to the brain. One peptide in particular, from a Borneo orange-fringed tarantula, had the right structure, stability ...
