Legal(ish): benign MJ full-spectrum CBD oil potency levels too low for neuro patients
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
An edible, viscous marijuana product called full-spectrum CBD oil has been scientifically proven to help with a wide variety of conditions that effect the brain such as neurodegenerative disorders, depression, chronic pain, dimensia, schizophrenia, and seizure disorders, to name a few. By putting a cap on the potency of edible full spectrum CBD, the government effectively denied a vulnerable group of people vitally important medicine.
Full-Spectrum CBD oil is the most benign, medicinally beneficial, scientifically- proven effective product from the marijuana plant. This medicine needs to be taken on a daily basis at very high levels of potency to be effective for those suffering from neurological issues.
"In view of the very low toxicity and the generally benign side effects of [Cannabinoids], neglecting or denying their clinical potential is unacceptable.." Cannabinoids in health and disease, Natalya M. Kogan, MSc & Raphael Mechoulam, PhD. (from US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health website. See link below for description of the study.)
In 2015, a study at the Lautenberg Center for Immunology and Cancer Research found that full-spectrum CBD worked best as potency levels increased, especially compared to CBD Isolate. Most of the products available in Canada are CBD isolate or Hemp CBD. While these are effective for some people with pain up to a certain potency, they are ineffective for those who use it to treat the brain.
Why does the public need protection from a benign substance that has consistently been shown to be promising medicinally in studies?
1. Immediately remove regulations restricting potency of full spectrum CBD oil in edible products to 28mg/mL. Remove regulations restricting CBD to liquid form as viscous oil can have higher potency. Require LP's to clearly label "hemp derived" or "marijuana derived" on product listing online (many of them want you to register before you can get this info!).
2. Put a price cap on ALL medicinal marijuana products. Require LP's test their edible extract products through independent, non- biased labs.
3. Publicly give your blessing to marijuana activists, dispensaries, naturopaths, medicinal marijuana users, and pharmacists and chemists to openly exchange ideas and information to streamline production of this vitally important medicine.
4. Allow naturopaths to produce and sell marijuana full spectrum CBD oil as herbal medicine. *This is a plant based product with benign levels of THC, this is a no brainer.*
My name is Gayle. I was injured in a trauma seven years ago that left me with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, and severe chronic pain. I do everything I can to function well, to be well, but it is a daily struggle. I am in therapy, neurofeedback therapy, I get trigger point injections every 3 weeks, I work out 3x/week, walk every day, eat well, and full spectrum CBD (was) is my primary source of pain relief. I am not on any pain killers, I am not on muscle relaxants or anti- inflammatories. I pay for my own treatments, I trained my own BC Certified Service dog, I have never been a public nuisance. None of my treatments are subsidized by the gov't.
I don't know when or where I can get my meds and it is terrifying. There are people who need this medicine to function, and I am one of them.
