Marijuana Is A Powerful Medicine

Scientists have thoroughly proven that marijuana can be used to treat pain, inflammation, atherosclerosis, and osteoporosis thanks to a chemical found in the plant called beta-caryophyllene.  When smoked, this pushes a biological button, which then soothes the immune system, increases bone mass and blocks pain signals.

Since beta-caryophyllene may prove quite beneficial for users, the chemical itself could become an ideal  medication. This could lead to it being developed in pill-form, severing its connection with cannabis and becoming a standalone medication that won’t have you hearing the magic chord. Wait…this is supposed to be good news?

  1. Yes, it is medicine. Even the United States Government knows that (though they won’t admit it). But the fact the Dept. of Health and Human Services filed for and was awarded a patent (#6,630,507) all the way back in 2003 on the medical uses of cannabis, ought to tell you something. Remember, this is a patent awarded, not by, but TO the Government. Spread the word.

  2. the guy i house-shared with in my 2nd year of uni will smoke, or probably happily pill-pop to that. he had a rock climbing accident, and found that weed was the only thing that would dull the pain effectively enough for him still to be able to do stuff, without knocking him out so badly that he … well, couldn’t do stuff. though naturally it was then a bit of a battle finding the WILL to utilise this restored freedom of movement, rather than just veg out eating curry & chips and watching Buffy… you have to be careful with the dosage, like.
