Marijuana does have a long history in the world of human health. Many experts and research institutions in the world have long studied the benefits and dangers of marijuana for health. The New England Journal of Medicine, for example, reveals facts about the use of marijuana for health. Data in the journal shows that 90% of patients with Dravet’s syndrome can be treated with the Medical marijuana. The Dravet’s syndrome is a high level of epilepsy that is difficult to cure.
Research on the benefits of marijuana was carried out by Greenwich Biosciences who later discovered extracts of marijuana medicine named Epidiolex. This marijuana drug is believed to be able to treat the Dravet syndrome. The study revealed that treatment using Epidiolex was faster than other drugs.
This is also agreed by other medical experts. Quoted from Washington post, Orrin Devinsky said medical marijuana had been declared a treatment for epilepsy sinced 3,800 years ago. Cannabidiol or another term for substances in marijuana is used as a nerve receptor to prevent tension. Cannabidiol is said to be very useful for some treatment therapies such as overcoming the effects of chemotherapy.
Other findings were also written by IOM (Institute of Medicine), Washington DC, in the book Marijuana and Medicine. The book reveals some of the benefits of substances in marijuana as well as the risks and side effects. From the benefits revealed, proving marijuana has a clinical effect.
