Cannabis in Modern Medicine

Dr. MercolaGuest
Waking Times

Dr. Allan Frankel, a board-certified internist at GreenBridge Medical in Santa Monica, California, has treated patients with medical cannabis for the past 13 years. The first time I interviewed him back in 2014, cannabis laws in the U.S. were quite different, so in this interview, he provides us with a much-needed update. Not only is recreational use of cannabis now legal in California and several other states, but hemp is also legal nationwide, thanks to a change in the farm bill passed at the end of 2018. As noted by Frankel: →

Arthritis? Try cannabis to improve your condition — NaturalNews.com – August 18, 2019

(Natural News) There is a system within the human body that regulates pain and modulates the immune system. This little-known system of the body is a major gateway for regulating inflammation in the cells. This body system is often left out of human anatomy textbooks. This system is like a door that connects the nervous system with the immune system. This innate portal of healing is called the endocannibinoid system. The key to unlocking this door is found in cannibinoids, which are plant-based or endogenous compounds that bring down inflammation in the cells and communicate healing to the body.
