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.

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. In countries and states where medical cannabis is legal, scientists and doctors are able to research the benefits of CBD for epilepsy – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is not a good cannabinoid for seizures as it is psychoactive. CBD is also an anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory, with the added benefits of being a good […]
