World Health Organization Finds Cannabis To Be A 'Relatively Safe Drug'


World Health Organization Finds Cannabis To Be A 'Relatively Safe Drug'


The World Health Organization Expert Committee on Drug Dependence has come out with a rather positive outlook on cannabis. They recently released their pre-review report on cannabis and cannabis-related substances which found cannabis to have minimal adverse affects and established medical usage.
CBD


The WHO seems to be particularly confident in the non-psychoactive cannabis extract CBD, particularly in the medical space, saying, the potential therapeutic effects of CBD "[are] generally well tolerated, with a good safety profile." They cited CBD-based epilepsy medication as the premier example of this.
Whole Plant


The whole cannabis plant got off pretty easy, too. The WHO admitted that "cannabis is not associated with acute fatal overdoses."


Additionally, they found cannabis consumption to improve sleep, appetite and able to effectively treat chronic and neuropathic pain.


As far as adverse effects of smoking cannabis, the WHO didn't come up with much, listing "euphoria, laughter and talkativeness" as potential reactions. They did note, however, that cannabis consumption can lead to anxiety and even "psychotic reactions in vulnerable individuals."


Overall though, the WHO found cannabis to be a "relatively safe drug." One that around 231,000,000 people worldwide already use.

I wonder how that assessment compares to many pharmaceutical products released every year with the full endorsement of government .... Oxycontin for example :wassnnme:

They've certainly changed their tune, not so long ago they were listing the many drawbacks to the use of cannabis.

 

I've just googled  " WHO and cannabis - Facts and Figures " talk about a screeching u turn.

 

They've come out with so much shite over the years why should they be believed now anyway, even if they are finally seeing the light...

 

.....or is there another reason?.......:wassnnme:
