Medical Cannabis Treats Everything
Medical cannabis cures date back thousands of years. In fact, cannabis was a treatment for everything from headaches and joint pain to fever and gout. Infants, children, adults and the elderly were all treated with different forms of cannabis in the past. If your baby cried, cannabis extract would make them sleep. Ladies with menstrual cramps smoked cannabis to relieve the pain. Many other common symptoms were treated with one form of cannabis or another.
We’ve all hear stories of marijuana curing cancer or stopping seizures.
In the last hundred years, “modern” medicine has come a long way and treatments have drastically changed. Thankfully, mothers are no longer giving infants any form of marijuana.
More recent research has indicated history was correct about some cannabis treatments. Epilepsy, cancer, chronic pain, and many other diseases have symptoms that can be treated with cannabis.
Whether or not cannabis cures cancer may not be known for another 20 years, but the symptoms of cancer are certainly minimized with many forms of this natural and organic herb.
Thousands of seizure-ridden adolescents have been treated with marijuana cannabidiol (“CBD”) oil. Some patients have gone from hundreds of seizures a week to fewer than a dozen. Other children have become seizure-free with the correct dosage of CBD. This miracle compound has been called the “Twenty-first century wonder drug” and can be found in all 50 States and the District of Columbia to treat many different symptoms in adults, children and adolescents.
The US Government and FDA is being slow to change and Federal Law continues to reject cannabis as a legitimate medication, although every state and DC has allowed the use of CBD and more than 30 states have created some type of medical cannabis legislation. Thankfully, many states have stood against the Fed and decided to enact their own laws regarding medical cannabis.
