Cannabis-Based Medicine Dramatically Reduces Epileptic Seizures

“The results provide a boost for claims that cannabidiol, or CBD, can be an effective treatment for epileptic patients – a view supported by a growing body of evidence despite legal restrictions that have made it difficult for scientists to extensively study the substance, as well as reluctance so far among federal authorities to officially sanction use of the compound in medicine.”

Cannabis Compound May Restore Learning and Memory in People With Schizophrenia

“A chemical compound found in cannabis may improve working memory and recognition in people suffering from schizophrenia, according to a new study that adds a fresh twist to the complex relationship between marijuana and mental health.”

Psychoactive Cannabis Compound THC Shows Promise as Cognitive Aid

“Marijuana’s main psychoactive compound, THC, may improve memory, according to a new study in mice. However, more research is needed to see whether these findings would apply to people, the researchers said.”

  1. My dad makes his own…he says it helps him with sleep..but if he takes to much he gets stoned and gets stupid n lazy…..yes he uses the low THC STRAINS but you can still get stoned with a dropper full…if you want CBD only you use RUDERALIS

  2. Wouldn't it be great if people would stop using the slang term "Marijuana" which isn't a botanical term and is historically racist. It is called cannabis whether it's used for recreational, medicinal, or industrial purposes aka hemp. I hate that my patient card says medical marijuana instead of the correct botanical term, you don't go get your pain meds from the pharmacy and tell them you're picking up your hillbilly heroin, or your medical grade heroin. Medical cannabis not marijuana whether it's psychoactive or not it's all still cannabis. And just because medical marijuana rolls off the tongue a little easier is no excuse to be using slang when you're talking about medication if that's what you're using it for.

  3. Sceintists lie because they will loose money… in denmark a professor lied in tv and i wrote him where he said their study was only on thc where a girl was saying it didnt help on her pain…. Well she was smoking thc and not cbd thats why….. I no longer trust the so called sceintists or professors, cause they are dumb or not aware of wtf they are studying

  4. I need to ask somebody here. Anybody here. I am a HUGE THC SMOKER. Couldn't get any bud for like 4 days and just smoked some CBD Nugs and got a little paranoid/bugging. It was only on that first initial time though, afterwards I was fine and I actually think I might make the switch. Is that normal or am I just bugging because I felt high but I wasn't high? 😂 Lol

  5. Cannabis products are A-okay so long as you don't get high on them. That's the dumbest rationalization ever, what exactly about feeling high is so bad for you? The entire point of alcohol is the feeling and we know it's bad for us, so why does weed get scrutinized?

  6. CBD works different than THC…It doesn’t work because it has NO THC! Don’t waste your money. Buy the REAL thing! Hellweed! (As noted, it can cause panic attacks in some individuals.) Adjust dosage .
