More Evidence that Medical Marijuana Can Reduce Opioid Dependency.

medical marijuana

It has long been argued that medical marijuana can be an effective tool in the fight against opioid dependency. Now a new study, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, has found what it describes as  “behavioral economic evidence” that this can be true is patients using it for pain relief. By using an online survey the researchers were able to assess the frequency and dependency of both opioid and cannabis use in adults.

Medical Marijuana Strongly Beneficial Compared to Opioids

The Survey showed, “Adults reporting current use of opioids for pain management and past 30-day cannabis exposure…completed two hypothetical purchase tasks in which only grams of cannabis or units of participants’ index opioids were available for purchase, and two hypothetical tasks in which both were concurrently available and the price of one drug increased whereas the other was kept constant.” 

This is terrific news for advocates of medical marijuana use.

5 of the Best CBD Strains of Cannabis

Best CBD Strains

Even the most newbie of all will, by now, of heard about THC and CBD in Cannabis. But what are the differences? And what is are the best CBD strains and THC strains good at. In this article, we are concentrating on CBD. The main differences are that it is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is what gets you high and Cannabidiol (CBD) that has the medical properties.

THC is a phytocannabinoid that was first discovered in 1940. It is thought to be part of the plant’s self-defense system. It is involved in the fight against insect predation, ultraviolet light, and environmental stresses.

CBD is just one of 113 cannabinoids that have thus far been identified. They account for up to 40% of cannabis extract.

What are the Best CBD Strains used for?

The best CBD strains contain high levels of CBD and are now accepted by the main health organizations in the world as useful tools in the fight against many medical disorders. In 2018 The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex for the treatment of two types of epilepsy: Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in children with refractory epilepsy. 

For Dravet syndrome, the use of the Charlottes Web strain was shown to have particularly good efficacy. The strain was named after Charlotte Figi who sadly passed away on April 7th, probably as a result of Covid-19, though this was not fully diagnosed. See the obituary posted on The Mary Jane Website on April 9th. 

Over the years CBD has been used to successfully treat or alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, anxiety disorders, stress, insomnia, acne, and heart disease. It is widely accepted now as a major help in general pain relief, in some cases people suffering conditions that cause constant pain, have been helped tremendously by taking medical marijuana. Cancer sufferers, in particular, are stating that CBD has helped in the management of their condition.

We must look at this responsibly. Medical marijuana is not a wonder drug that will be a panacea for all ills. However, it is also imperative that we look at this with an open mind, guided by the testimonies of those who are gaining valuable help by its use and the doctors who support them.
