A search of PubMed, the National Institute of Health's medical library reveals 1327 search results for Cannabidiol and 21330 search results for Marijuana. These substances have had extensive research showing positive results in treating many conditions.
With as much research that has been done, it is hard to believe anyone is opposed to it. Cannabidiol oil contains no THC and therefore creates no high. Cannabiniol oil is legal in all 50 states because it is classified as a nutritional supplement, so it's available to everyone.
Here in Colorado, THC-containing cannabis products are now also legal for recreational use as well.
However, there is also some advantage to using the whole herb because in some circumstances, the THC and cannabiniol work together synergistically to help some conditions. My question is, who cares if it causes a psychoactive effect? Why is that so bad?
People point to some possible bad side effects from the use of the substance. Well, all prescription drugs have side effects, and that hasn't stopped them from being used. Some of the side effects from prescription drugs are really horrendous, and yet they are prescribed. And we know there are very bad effects associated with alcohol and cigarettes, and yet they are legal. So apparently our government doesn't mind appearing hypocritical in that respect.
Our opinion is, there should be no government interference in a person's individual decision about what choices they can make for their own healthcare.
The PubMed search results referenced above show that Cannabidiol oil and or THC have the following positive health effects:
If you want a higher high, use the sativa strains as they have a higher THC content. If you want a more analgesic affect, for pain relief, use an indica strain.
