A recently published scientific study, “Joints for joints”, has, in somewhat cautious terms, stated that “cannabis could be an appropriate treatment for RA (rheumatoid arthritis).
Being a plant medicine with a high safety profile and a molecular composition that is difficult to copy for large pharmacological companies, cannabis is increasingly becoming”the medicine of the people”.
Those born after the end of World War II, the so called Baby Boomers, and other elderly people suffering from inflammation of the joints already enjoy relief thanks to cannabis, whether or not science is entirely on the score.
An American doctor -Dr. Benjamin Caplan – who is also a cannabis specialist – has founded the CED Foundation in Boston. There, thousands of patients over the age of 65 have been helped with their arthritis thanks to cannabis.
