The cannabis compounds are proving to be miracle workers
The days of marijuana being seen as a “gateway drug” or of having “no medicinal value” are almost completely in the rear-view mirror. Studies are confirming what many have argued for decades – that certain ingredients found in marijuana have properties that provide a wealth of benefits in combatting health issues. The National Institute on Drug Abuse, part of the National Institute of Health, has even now admitted that there are positive medicinal uses for cannabis and its components. As studies continue to decipher the virtues of the plant, three areas, in particular, are perfect targets for cannabis use.
ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a disorder that affects as much as 11% of children between 4 and 17 years of age. Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found naturally in cannabis, can help to overcome the symptoms, which include depression, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety.
Anyone who has dealt with a migraine or severe headaches knows how debilitating they can be. Fortunately, studies have proven that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) counters the pain. The Food and Drug Administration has already approved a drug, Nabilone, to provide much-needed relief.
Phenobarbital has been used for decades to treat patients who suffer from seizures. However, as with any laboratory-created drug, there are long-term ramifications associated with its use. However, CBD is an effective alternative, especially for those who suffer from treatment-resistant epilepsy.
The world is witnessing a paradigm shift of massive proportions. There have been long-held beliefs that virtually any ailment, affliction or illness could be treated with products naturally found throughout the planet, and marijuana is proving those individuals to be correct.
