Medical cannabis is on the rise – but does it work? | Epilepsy, Chronic Pain & Sleep

It’s thought as many as 100000 Australians self-medicate with marijuana illegally – for everything from back pain to sleep problems. But when it comes to the …


  1. All is well and good in trying to find evidence for the benefits in cannabis but why don't we instead try and find any evidence that cannabis is dangerous because my hypotheses is that it's harmless compared to many of the other prescribed pharmaceuticals available, let alone Tobacco or Alcohol.

  2. Non THC cannabidiol works for my sleep issues with out the nasty side effects the over the counter sleep aid type drugs you buy at the store. It also has helped for my anxiety with the combination of Gingko Biloba. CBD at night and Gingko Biloba for day time has been working quite well

  3. I believe that cannabidiol is the smartest solution to pain relief because the body recognizes the substance so the inhabition of pain signals is biologically organic. The key would be dosage. That is completely individual. I struggle with osteoarthritis. I have tried both the CBD oil and a cream independently and in combination. The combination worked within minutes. And lasted several hours and these were just products from a health food store. My friend who had been prescribed opioids, doesn't feel any affects of pain relief from the CBD oil. Lots of factors to consider for dosage.

  4. The reason research in cannabis plant is not being properly done is because the cannabis plant is competition to big pharmaceutical companies.

    Countles artificial drugs would be useless as people get well by using natural cannabis. This means BILLIONS of $$$ losses for Big Pharma, so they use corrupt governments to make cannabis illegal.

    I am against using cannabis for recreational use. It affects people negatively in many ways. But each to their own.
    Each individual should decide what to do with their lives, NOT corrupt politicians.
