Emerging Research on the Medical Use of Cannabis

06/30/2019 6:07 AM

..."How did Israel become a cannabis empire? Prof Dedi Meiri is the head of the world’s leading cannabis lab in the Technion. In TEDxTelAviv he showed us how they beat cancer with drugs, so world leaders come to his lab to watch the wonder."...

Well worth watching!

It is incredibly unfortunate that the classification as a forbidden substance has prevented scientific research on cannabis and its compounds here in the USA for many years.

Self righteous do-gooders have plagued this country from the beginning...but science marches on and they can no longer manufacture their own truths to inflict on the people without retribution and exposure.... Every day cannabis remains illegal, is a slap in the face of reason....

Thankyou for this.

My friends son with brain damage after accident showed improvement after treatment with cannabis.

But did show side effects when homeopath increased dosage.

It seems it can be a very effective method of treating various ailments.

But as per your video there needs to be more research to identify and target particular needs..

How is this off topic, as it agrees with post one?

Johny_Bonny's answer is not off-topic, but is not a very good answer. We need a way to rate answers that are on-topic but poor or wrong without using the off-topic label.

There's anecdotal evidence here and there, but we need large well funded clinical trials and research such as Prof Dedi Meiri is performing, to get conclusive proof and identify what combination and types of cannabinoids work for which cancers..That is pretty much impossible as long as it's illegal...

Truth is not sour grapes.

Can you refute any of the cites I posted, or do you just want to whine?

There are plenty of medicines that are prescribed by doctors that cannot be bought over the counter (OTC). I don't understand why compounds found in the cannabis plant should be treated any differently.

Prof Dedi Mein's method makes a lot of sense, correlating the ingredients found in different formulations with the success in treating various diseases. I wish him luck.

Well it's a long story....

..."Medicinal preparations of cannabis became available in American pharmacies in the 1850s following an introduction to its use in Western medicine by William O'Shaughnessy a decade earlier in 1839.[6]

Cannabis fluid extract medicine bottle...

Around the same time, efforts to regulate the sale of pharmaceuticals began, and laws were introduced on a state-to-state basis that created penalties for mislabeling drugs, adulterating them with undisclosed narcotics, and improper sale of those considered "poisons". Poison laws generally either required labels on the packaging indicating the harmful effects of the drugs or prohibited sale outside of licensed pharmacies and without a doctor's prescription.

Those that required labeling often required the word "poison" if the drug was not issued by a pharmacy.

Other regulations were prohibitions on the sale to minors, as well as restrictions on refills. Some pharmaceutical laws specifically enumerated the drugs that came under the effect of the regulations, while others did not—leaving the matter to medical experts. Those that did generally included references to cannabis, either under the category of "cannabis and its preparations" or "hemp and its preparations."[7]

A 1905 Bulletin from the United States Department of Agriculture lists twenty-nine states with laws mentioning cannabis. Eight states are listed with "sale of poisons" laws that specifically mention cannabis: North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Vermont, Maine, Montana; and the District of Columbia. Among those states that required a prescription for sale were Wisconsin and Louisiana. Several "sale of poison" laws did not specify restricted drugs, including in Indiana, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Nebraska, Kentucky, Mississippi, and New York. Many states did not consider cannabis a "poison" but required it be labeled.[8]

In New York, the original law did enumerate cannabis, and was passed in 1860 following a string of suicides allegedly involving the substances later categorized as poisons. The first draft of the bill 'An act to regulate the sale of poisons' prohibited the sale of cannabis—as with the other substances—without the written order of a physician.[9]

The final bill as passed allowed the sale without a prescription so long as the purpose to which it was issued and name and address of the buyer was recorded, and in addition, all packaging of such substances—whether sold with a prescription or not—had to have the label "poison" on them in uppercase red letters.

In 1862, the section which enumerated the substances was repealed with an amendatory act, though cannabis was still required to be labeled.[10]

...and on and on....
