medicinal marijuana benefits

I dont know if this will help, but I have read many articles about medical marijuana and how it can help you in terms of chronic pain, bone injuries, eating disorder/anorexia, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Like this article about a marijuana strain from blimburnseeds.com/blue-dream. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. Alternatively, they've also found new ways to infuse cannabis on food and beverages. If this is true I can't find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

A friend of mine has ms and uses it regularly for pain management. Thereís no question itís of huge potential medical value to many, looking forward to full decriminalisation as we seem to be creeping towards. I used to smoke it regularly but havenít done for about 15 years. I found it to be non addictive unless mixed with tobacco, but smoking anything and inhaling canít be too good for you.

You won't get high on medicinal weed if that's what you are hoping. If you are going to smoke marijuana then please don't drive.

I think that its efficacy with regards to some illnesses is indisputable, especially in terms of pain relief, and I believe it should be legalised and therefore regulated. There are, however, charlatans out there at present. My Dad was hopeful when he bought some to help with his stage 4 cancer. You read all sorts of miracle stories online and this stage, you're willing to try anything. However, he paid a lot of money and it didn't help. I believe that it can definitely work with some illnesses, but those taking advantage of people in the last stages of cancer need to be held to account.

Its efficay as an anagesic has been known for a long time, though actual solid evidence is hard to come by as it is unique, I believe, in not being permitted to be researched in clinical trials.
It was prescribed in the 1980s to a neighbour in Paddock Rd as an anti-emetic to counter the effects of cancer chemotherapy, but this apparently needed a one-off licence from the Home Office.
Dr John Snow (the one who established that cholera was spread in drinking water) administered it to Queen Victoria as a pain-killer.

"You won't get high on medicinal weed", of course you will, weed is weed not hemp, CBD extract (which is what you're thinking of) is an extract from weed not weed.
@MS, we were creeping towards full decriminalisation (we were pretty much there with it a class C under new labour), however Camoron's first act as PM under the coalition was to move it back to a class B, a spectacular waste of the police's time and resources.
They need to legalise it and tax it, not decriminalise it.
Whatever the rights and wrongs of it are, it's better for you than drinking (there are many safe ways to take it that don't involve smoking) and keeping it as an illegal drug (it's very easy to grow) is fuelling organised crime and gang violence (again wasting more of the Police's time).

You can try CBD oil, it contains way less THC comapring with medical marijuana. You can add few drops in your water, coffee or tea. It won't make you high and it works as a pain killer

Actually, I would like to add to what I have written above. I understand your concerns about medical marijuana, especially if you are not a smoker. I have tried CBD oil myself, and I would say that it magically worked on me. Sometimes I suffer from headaches, especially after long working hours without breaks. Iíve tried CBD oil and vape pens that contain it, and both helped me a lot. Vape pen makes you feel relaxed, but not high. You need to know the difference between CBD and marijuana to make your decision.

"You can use CBD to treat any chronic illness that can cause pain. This could be cancer, inflammation, trauma, or depression.
CBD is a natural cannabinoid that has been shown to work as a pain reliever for conditions such as chronic pain, migraine, fibromyalgia, cancer, and others.
It is also used to relieve depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, knee pain, chronic pain, and other conditions. My grandmother, for example, takes CBD with melatonin tillmanstranquils.com. It helps her relieve joint pain and sleep better."

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
