    <p style=”padding-left: 40px;”>With the development and acceptance of CBD we can find that more and more doctors and physicians are opening up to the medicinal benefits of cannabis in general despite all the false negativity spread around it.</p>

    <p style=”padding-left: 40px;”>Could CBD be considered “regular” medicine ? Whatever that means… Are there any negative sides to CBD alone, I know cannabis altogether has some, allegedly, it’s all healthy to me</p>

    I think that there should be rigorous reproduceable peer reviewed research on the safety of CBD.  That being said, my guess is that it is safer than most “approved” over the counter medicines.

    Research on cannabis in general is STILL hampered by the insane federal scheduling of marijuana as a Class 1 narcotic.  Jimmy frickin Carter was in favor of the decriminalization of marijuana.  But, STILL! ALL OF THESE YEARS LATER, the federal standards stand in the way of full and effective research.

    Medical marijuana is pretty much the same product that is used for recreational use. The only difference is that in this context, it is taken for medicinal purposes.

    Marijuana has over 100 types of chemicals called cannabinoids. Of these, it’s Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol that have medicinal effects.

    Although the FDA only approves marijuana for the treatment of Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes, there are a handful of other conditions that it can be used to treat including Alzheimer’s, cancer, appetite loss, eating disorders, pain, wasting syndrome, and mental health.

    Unfortunately, despite its great medicinal benefits, cannabis also has a number of side effects that you should understand. Here is a low down of the worst.

    I only wish the benefits actually got the recognition they deserve

    The studies referred to as supporting the possibility that cannabis leads to depression, all could probably be interpreted, alternatively as:  Persons more likely to become depressed, are also more likely to use cannabis as a self medication.

    I agree that our system for approval of medicines is rife with profit motivated dysfunction.

    Nicky, Using the forums to market products is against the rules.

    Funny how prevalent it has become…I am eating my lunch reading this thread while two strangers sit down at a table next to me and are in mid conversation about CBD, where to get it, dose age, etc. The fact is, we don’t know why/how it works, it used to be believed that it blinded with the endocannabinoid system, but that has pretty much been debunked. It does alleviate seizures in a few forms of epilepsy, and has anecdotally been linked do reducing anxiety, pain and helping sleep, but this is very possibly due to the placebo effect. The problem is it’s very difficult to get govt funding to do studies on this. Cannabis is a natural substance and should of course be used in medical need. And once I was really curious how to get a medical card in california online. But I think smoking is the worst way for this movements supporters to show how great this plant can be. Vaping and edibles and topical (maybe; needs more testing but reports show it works) seems to be the most logical route to embellish and push as the best way to get this medicine.

    Some really stealth spam on this thread. But spam, spam, CBD and spam is still spam.

    I found useful text https://cbdee.com/best-cbd-cream-for-pain/

    It seems, that CBD cream can be helpful to people with pain issues. What do you think about this type of CBD? Have you ever tried it? Did you experience positive changes?

    The investigations alluded to as supporting the likelihood that cannabis prompts sorrow, all could most likely be deciphered, on the other hand as: Persons bound to get discouraged, are additionally bound to utilize cannabis as a self prescription. I concur that our framework for endorsement of prescriptions is overflowing with benefit roused brokenness.
