I believe it’s time to admit that cannabinoids have more redeeming qualities that are beneficial than harmful. Unlike many of the prescription drugs with a multitude of dangerous side effects, it is safer to use for arthritis, glaucoma, after effects of chemotherapy as well as seizures and Parkinson’s disease. I suffer from arthritis and have been using a topical cream to relieve the pain. It works! The pain is gone! It is temporary but I can reapply as needed. I mentioned it to my doctor and she agreed that it was better than the medication she had prescribed. I realize I am just one person and that it might not work as well for others, but we should be pursuing research in more natural remedies and move away from synthetic drugs that are costly and dangerous.
