Without clinical evidence doctors are reluctant to prescribe medicinal marijuana to patients, even if they are permitted by a government. This is due to the lack of clinical evidence that shows the effectiveness and safety of marijuana plant as a medicine.

This is also the main excuse given by politicians and others as to why they are stalling and staggering the roll out of medicinal marijuana for many illnesses in Ireland and across the world, and one of the reasons why they are recommending synthetically derived pharmaceutical products. Through trials on these products, it has been observed that these products have side effects and are not the same as using the whole plant and does not have the same effects on the patient.

Its clear we need human clinical trials to study the benefits of whole plant marijuana in treating many illnesses, not just a select few. There is plenty of anecdotal accounts and animal based trials that show the potential of marijuana, but not enough human trials. People like Rick Simpson, Dr Christina Sanchez, Dr. Jason McDougall and Dr. Sheng-Ming Dai to name but a few, have done amazing work to date, let them and others do more so that there is facts and no doubt to hide behind!

Let us see the truth and evidence when it comes to using this plant as medicine. Not hearsay and doubt. So start these trials so people can get on with their lives, let the doctor decide based on facts, not what product is pushed by big pharma, so people can treat themselves in a more natural and healthy way!
