Cannabis oil as an alternative medicine

I have read many articles about medical cannabis 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 www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/ray-charles/. 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

re: Cannabis oil as an alternative medicine

The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (NCBI) offers research and clinical trials information. You can view each States medical marijuana approved laws; however, states can change laws according to what the Legislators decide and may change the law that was voted in by public vote, therefore this link may not be updated with current information. This law was changed recently in one State. According to The Salt Lake Tribune “Utah has a new medical marijuana law- but not the one approved by voters in the recent election."

I'm a patient

In my state of CT marijuana is legal for medical use for a list of conditions including the chronic pain condition fibromyalgia which I have. I use medical marijuana to combat pain and to aid with sleep which I ingest in a combination of edibles (infused brownies) and using a vaporizer that basically slow roasts dried flower. I also have a cbd cartridge pen that is considered 1:1 cbd:thc for daytime no high use. I chose those route to maintain a higher level of functioning without opiate use. I have actually been able to stop other sleep aids and reduce ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and naproxen need for myself down to rarely. More research is definitely needed as it hasnt been permitted to be researched because of its federal ban. As a medical professional and a patient I feel it's far safer than adding to the opioid crisis this nation is facing. Proof in the pudding is that it works and WHO is looking to take it off its ban list as well because of it.
