It may not be surprising that the one of the main active chemical compounds in cannabis, Cannabidiol (CBD), is helpful in healing some sick people. It has known anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, even anti-psychotic properties.
For years the government told us marijuana has no medical value and it especially bad for children.
But now it turns out that marijuana high in cannabidiol (CBD) is the ONLY medicine that helps people with seizure disorders or autism.
In another article here at BigBudsMag.com, you read about a mass migration of people to Colorado. They're seeking medical marijuana high in CBD so they can save their children's lives with it.
In clinical and case studies, CBD has been amazingly helpful in mitigating extreme forms of autism, and halting seizures in children with epilepsy.
The LA Times covered the story of a child who suffered from terrible seizures:
In the 14 months since, the little boy has been swallowing droppers full of a solution made mostly of cannabidiol, or CBD, the second most prominent of marijuana's 100 or so cannabinoids. Unlike the dominant THC, cannabidiol is not psychoactive, so the sweet-tasting infusion Jayden takes four times a day doesn't make him high.
Down from 22 prescription pills per day to four, he now eats solid food, responds to his father's incessant requests for kisses and dances in his Modesto living room to the "Yo Gabba Gabba!" theme song. The frequency and intensity of his seizures have been greatly reduced.
The drug warriors and their friends in the chemical medical industries are scared that marijuana is going to take their market share and profits because it works better and is safer than the drugs commonly used for autism and seizture disorders.
It's nice to see that what we "stoners" have said for years is proven true: marijuana is a great medicine.
