CBD oil is same minus the THC - or the 'high' element. If you dig a little further you will find those who have cured themselves of cancer, have used oil containing both.
never killed anyone ?
True. Although there was one reported issue of a guy who's heart slowed down so much it stopped, but the jury was out as he had a heart issue prior to. So the general consensus is that cannabis has never killed anyone. Though it is rumoured if you can ingest 750 KG in one sitting, it is theoretically possible
And never led to taking different drugs ?
Alcohol is the worst gateway drug, because it reduces your ability to say no! I would go as far to say as Alcohol is really the only and true gateway drug as it reduces your commonsense level to do stupid things, some of which can be dangerous to you and others around you. Cannabis usually has a calming affect, you don't see people stab each other after a joint! When was the first time I tried cannabis, when I was drunk
And doesn't lead to paranoia ?
This is an interesting one - I think the answer is if you have any mental health issues I suspect any use of any drug will not help, this is true with Cannabis - does it affect mental health of those without mental health issues, probably not - I know a lot of middle-aged business men, who are hardworking, sucessful and do not have mental health issues after using all of their adult life. I also know of someone in their 70's who has been doing since their 20's and are perfectly fine. There is more of an issue if you use from a young age, before the brain is fully developed. Alcohol / Cocaine / Heroin / New China cheap drugs MCAT? way-way worse.
I've just got from the states,where it is legal,
I have never seen so many people with mental issues.
I think the jury is still out on. This one ?
No the issue in the states is the Americans (they voted a crazy person in, which should tell you something) - people been using it in Canada for some time and it's been used for 100's years below the radar. America has a massive problem, cuased by financial inequality and the opiate issue - pain killers - in fact it's been said a lot of the states bought in the cannabis legality to try to help with the opiate issue - pain relief etc. The optiate issue is a horrible one, people hooked on pain killers, denied renewal policies for health providers - have even turned to street dealers to use Heroin for pain relief, unbelievable. So the president cuts medicaid and 12-13 million poor people cant get presecriptions. That's America's problem Healthcare and the other Guns.
No drug is perfect - but cannabis has shown health benefits. I have a digestive issue which causes me immense pain at times, feels like a knife been stuck and twisted in my guts at times, 2 lugs on a vaporiser and I can move again. Microdose, not walking around like a stoned zombie! I also know someone with fibromyalgia - a muscle pain issue, he uses daily and it's the only non drastic medical option that will work for him.
So, nothings perfect - but Cannabis in general, which is a natural herb, is nowhere near as bad as alcohol which destroys lives, health and causes the most mental health issues. Don't make the mistake of because we are all acclimatised to alcohol, it's not a drug and ok - as it ruins more lives than anything else.
Goverments have not liked 'weed' simply because it can be grown at home, not easily taxble on that basis and big pharma spent years lobbying cannabis to be illegal, as theyt wanted to produce their own 'synthesized version'. When you have a situation where the American medical board has finally stated Cannabis can help with curing cancer (note they won't state Cannabis will cure cancer), but have taken a step to saying it as mounting evidence of positive medical benefits is forced out into the public arena.
We also are genetically programmed with receptors for Cannabis within our bodies, which people believe are related to key health triggers?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_system
Ultimately though, if you are already paranoid or suffer mental health issues, then Cannabis, Alcohol or anything that can alter your state of mind, won't help.
I find it quite odd, that people who can go to a bar most days, drink a few a day, think people who have a little cannabis are 'drug users', when they themselves are not only drug users *alcohol is a poison you know, it's toxicity is the bodies response! and more to the point, there's alcoholics everywhere here - definition if you need or have just one drink most days....It's all about perception & what we are told or grown up believing - whether it is true or not, is a different coversation entirely
Wendy - My dad is 'anti drugs' mae him try CBD oil for his arthritis and claims it has helped him more than any medication from the doctor. Couple of drops under the tongue every day.
