Getting ovarian cancer causes depression and anxiety and the cannabis oil treatment can be incorporated into the protocol of general treatment.

The WHO Agrees Medical Cannabis Does Not Have Dangerous Side Effects

The WHO Agrees Medical Cannabis Does Not Have Dangerous Side Effects In a lengthy and comprehensive document published late in 2017, the World Health Organisation (WHO) agrees that medical cannabis does not have dangerous side effects. This is a huge milestone in the cannabis world as the WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is concerned with international public health. It was on 14 December 2017, to be precise, that the WHO agreed that the cannabis cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) be removed from controlled substances registers worldwide.

The Benefits of Cannabis Oil For Epilepsy

The Benefits of Cannabis Oil for Epilepsy After years of research and studies into the benefits of cannabis oil for epilepsy, scientists are approving the use of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), to treat epilepsy.

Some doctors are adding cannabis oil to existing medication for people who have seizures which then subdues the side effects of their daily drug intake. Their conclusion is that the CBD-infused cannabis oil benefits epilepsy as it is safe and natural. Cannabis Oil as A Therapy for Seizures For nearly 200 years, cannabis oil has been used to treat and prevent seizures but it is only recently, in modern times, that the use of cannabis oil to treat epilepsy has come to light as a common discussion.
