If you search Medline for “cannabis” you will find 14,000 studies, which includes 814 total clinical trials.  Oftentimes the media and government harp the lack of research and knowledge about the use of this naturally occurring plant and its positive effects on the human body, however, there has been and continues to be a growing body of evidence to prove many of these long-time beliefs.

Cannabis, a plant that has varying species, including hemp, has gotten more and more attention for its potential positive health benefits, including the relief from pain in people with varying ailments.

From Natural Products Insider:

“In looking at a 2015 JAMA meta-analysis of 37 high-quality clinical trials on cannabis totaling 2,563 subjects, the eight trials that measured its effects on pain found it “very effective.” Evidence of cannabis’ benefits for nausea and vomiting was also found in three trials, mirroring its age-old use in folk medicines. The analysis also found cannabis was effective for spasticity in multiple sclerosis (MS), improving appetite in HIV/AIDS and wasting diseases, and ocular pressure in glaucoma.”

Cannabidiol, or CBD, from hemp is a promising alternative to the psychoactive strains, and is an option for people with balance and stability issues, as well as people that do not want to experience the “high” from THC.
