Studies have shown that cannabis has the ability to:
- Slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
- Reduce the number and severity of debilitating epileptic seizures
- Reduce muscle spasms experienced by those with multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Kill or limit the growth of cancer cells
- Provide anxiety relief and reduce nightmares for those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Minimize neurological damage following spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries.*
- In addition, cannabis has long been shown to effectively mollify both pain and nausea, making it a potentially powerful therapeutic for numerous medical conditions, including patients having to undergo chemotherapy or traditional AIDS/HIV treatments.
More than 15,000 modern peer-reviewed scientific articles on the pharmacology of cannabis and its cannabinoids have been published by medical journals, according to Americans for Safe Access.
