Medical marijuana now legalized in 33 states and the District of Columbia, and many of you probably have questions about its uses. I came cross this excellent article published this week in the British Medical Journal, and I want to pass it on.
The article reviews the available types of medicinal but also non-medicinal cannabis products and by-products, both natural and synthetic. It reviews how these products may be helpful or harmful to you and for which illnesses they may be effective.
Just to give you a taste of the information, one table lists detailed information about the prescription medicinal products including the natural derivatives Sativex, Epidiolex, Bedrocan, Tilray, the synthetics Dronabinol, Nabilone, and the non-medicinals CBD oil, White Widow, and Spice. Another table reviews the evidence for effectiveness of cannabinoids for the treatment of chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting.
If you have an interest in the medical uses for weed, do check this reference.
