In a landmark new study, The New England Journal of Medicine just confirmed what thousands have attested to anecdotally for years (http://dtn.fm/zTW93). Cannabidiol, which is found in marijuana plants, dramatically reduces the number of convulsive seizures in children with a severe and often fatal epilepsy disorder. Dravet syndrome is a rare, genetic form of epilepsy diagnosed when otherwise healthy infants start having unexplained seizures. The syndrome is a complex childhood drug-resistant disorder with uncontrollable seizures and a high mortality rate. Recurrent grand mal seizures, sometimes dozens even hundreds a month, literally take over and convulse the entire body. Most patients don’t live to reach adulthood and of those who do, most are unable to live independently.
The results of this latest study follow a sweeping 400-page report released in January by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine which covered more than 10,000 scientific studies on marijuana and medicine. The far reaching report reached multiple conclusions, among those, the firm verification that marijuana does have legitimate medical uses. The report’s resulting conclusions are supported by high-quality scientific studies that show cannabis and cannabinoids are effective at treating chronic pain, particularly pain related to multiple-sclerosis, also, that cannabinoid substances were effective for treating chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting in cancer patients.
Cannabidiol, also called CBD, is one of more than 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in the marijuana plant, which unfortunately is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance by the federal government. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, CBD does not produce euphoria or a high, and multiple states have legalized its medicinal use. Anecdotal no more, two major studies released in the last four months have scientifically validated the efficacy of medicinal marijuana. To hear some tell it, the flood gates of hell have opened to allow this scourge of a drug credibility in this country. Those who suffer give thanks for access to their medicine.
With medical efficacy questions put to bed, smart money is now looking for avenues to profit from this explosive new medical market. With a projected 60 percent annual growth rate in the U.S. alone, it makes sense to look globally and to population density for an even stronger strategic play.
