“I found the presentation very informative and professional. Medical cannabis is very important to me because of the benefits it can bring patients. I want to help get it out into the general public as a real medicine.” – Dan Sullivan, Cannabis Advocate
Cannabis has been given a bad name throughout the years, but the evidence shown from years of extensive research shows how it can be used as a beneficial medical treatment to patients with a wide variety of physical and psychiatric conditions, making cannabis an effective and accessible form of treatment to patients in need of alternative forms of medical care.
Medicinal cannabis has been shown to be a helpful treatment that aids in alleviating pain, nausea, and even reducing symptoms entirely in patients who have certain disorders. Foregoing medical cannabis in favor of painkillers would only help perpetuate the opioid epidemic that grips America.
CBD, a major chemical component in cannabis, has non-psychedelic effects when used, but has been proven to successfully reduce patient symptoms just as potently as cannabis that contains high level of THC, making CBD-based treatments a powerful option to include for treating patients.
Not allowing patients access to this type of treatment, or providing them biased information based only on the negative stigma of cannabis and not sound, proven knowledge prevents them from receiving a treatment that has the potential to be life changing.
Incorporating this information into natural practice for doctors and nurses will ensure that patients are aware of all of their treatment possibilities, which will subsequently allow them to choose the treatment that is best for them. Patients who are receiving medical care have a right to the best treatment possible.
This is the kind of information that needs to be spread to the public to help medical professionals provide the best type of treatment possible.
