The Science of Cannabinoids
In the face of great controversy, medical marijuana (or MMJ) has proven effective in the treatment of chronic pain and inflammation, as well as diseases like cancer and diabetes. Last October, it became legal to buy Medical Marijuana Cannabidiol (CBD), a potent MMJ nutraceutical that just might be the greatest anti-inflammatory medicine known to man. An October 21, 2012 60 Minutes segment titled “Rocky Mountain High” covered the burgeoning MMJ industry in Denver, Colorado, highlighting companies like Dixie Elixirs, Medical Marijuana Inc., and Edibles Brand, which exist outside of the medical industrial complex.
MMJ advocate Dr. Mark Sircus, the director of the IMVA, returns to It’s Rainmaking Time!® to discuss the health benefits and industry implications of CBD. We will explore how CBD’s inability to produce an intoxicating effect shifts the debate about using illicit drugs as medicine, and how it can be used in combination with magnesium, baking soda, and iodine for safe and effective self-treatment of chronic pain and inflammation. Tune in as Dr. Mark Sircus guides us through the changing face of medicine and the promise of THC-free medical marijuana.
