Months of research and debate have come to an end and the World Health Organization has released a long-awaited report that addressed not only individuals and activist groups but also countries all over the world.
The respected organization dealt with medical marijuana, specifically cannabidiol abbreviated as CBD. After collecting sufficient scientific evidence, they have stated that medical marijuana does not have any health risk to the public and its prescription should not be limited. The WHO, in its published conclusions, underlined the fact that cannabidiol does not endanger people by creating addiction to it, and is therefore an effective treatment for epilepsy, and it also alleviates symptoms on various types of seizures.
The organization plans a broader analysis of the whole marijuana for the next year, not just the specific components mostly used in medical marijuana, so the ice may break even stronger, but the statement itself that marijuana does not have any health risk means a good building block for new initiatives in countries, where doctors can’t prescribe it.
Besides medical marijuana, the World Health Organization’s report also looked at fentanyl, recommending strict regulations, as the drug is currently causing major problems, mostly in the United States of America.
