According to polls, about 88% of all Americans agree that marijuana does have medicinal value. Many doctors agree on the same as well, and say that cannabis should be legalized as it can help reduce symptoms of many diseases and conditions. Now, even the WHO admits that CBD oil does have potent medicinal value, which contradicts everything we’re heard from government organizations until now.
Recently, the WHO released a report which contradicts the DEA’s position that cannabis has no medical value or use. The WHO recently investigated this claim, and the results were stunning. Experts from the organizations and the ECDD found out that cannabis can help epilepsy patients treat their symptoms with no potential for abuse, and claim that there’s no reason for the oil to be banned for therapeutic use.
Health benefits of CBD
CBD is a compound in marijuana which gives it its amazing health benefits. It is one of the two well-known components of the herb along THC. However, THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana, and offers no health benefits at all. On the other hand, CBD has antibacterial, muscle-relaxing and anti-inflammatory properties, and won’t get you high like THC. In fact, CBD oils are highly recommended as an alternative treatment to muscle problems, epileptic seizures and neuropathy as well.
A few months ago, the National Health Institute released reports on CBD oil which were similar to those released by the WHO. This organization highlighted the oil’s therapeutic value, and before there’s sufficient evidence for drug approval, there’s need for further research.
At the moment, the Justice Department is pushed to reclassify marijuana, and many legislators are trying to make the congress repeal the Schedule I designation. Many countries around the world and some USA states as well are allowing their citizens to use cannabis for medical purposes, so maybe it’s time we all change our stance on the herb.
