The substances contained in cannabis plants are not harmful to humans, have health benefits and are not potentially abused. Thus, the latest facts revealed by a team of WHO experts who are members of The WHO’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence.
The WHO’s expert committee is focused on studying and revealing the beneficial facts of cannabidiol or CBD that are naturally present in cannabis plants.
After reviewing various studies conducted on animals and humans, the committee concluded that in humans, CBD inhibits the effects of abuse from marijuana or potential dependence.
The team also said the CBD is likely to be used to treat epilepsy and some other diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, anxiety, depression and so on. CBD can also help relieve inflammatory processes, have antioxidant effects and relieve pain. But the use of marijuana should be in accordance with the doctor’s prescription in order not to happen negative things.
In the United States, marijuana has been legalized in 30 states, both as a treatment and as recreational. Even in the state of Georgia, the CBD has been legalized as a remedy for some specific health disorders. For more details information about cannabis or marijuana, you can look at this Weed Blog.
Then what about in Indonesia? Until now in Indonesia, marijuana is still classified as group 1 narcotics. Meaning, marijuana belongs to the most dangerous narcotics, highly addictive power and can only be used for research and science purposes.
Well, now after the research and it turns out the addictive power of cannabis is not as big as previously said and it turns out marijuana is also not harmful to humans, whether the classification of narcotics marijuana will be changed? Let’s wait.
