  • Medical marijuana.

    There is a special report on the subject in the cover story of the Sept issue of the AARP Bulletin.
    I am unable to provide a link to the article, except for Part I. (The Basics),
    Part II (The Research) does not seem to be available on the internet, but I am now able to provide a link to Part I. in my comment #4 of this thread.
    I will be quoting from the AARP Bulletin about Part II.

      Quoting from the Research Section of the report:

      "More than 600,000 Americans turn to cannabis for relief from chronic pain - and the scientific evidence for its effectiveness is substantial. In gold-standard randomized clinical trials of people who had agonizing health concerns - peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain from diabetes), spinal cord injury, HIV or complex regional pain syndrome, cancer, chemotherapy, muscle and joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis - cannabis reduced pain by 40%, according to the 2017 NASEM report.
      "In a recent Canadian study, cannabis even soothed arthritic lab rats. Surprisingly, there's little evidence (yet) from human studies for the most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis - the wear-and-tear joint disease affecting 50% of adults age 65-plus. Clinical trials are underway. But who's waiting? Arthritis was the top reason older adults used cannabis in a 2019 Colorado survey, followed by back pain. Overall, 79% said it helped.

          Thank you very much for the link, I started reading right now. Nice forum btw. I have around 25 magazines. I like reading them in my room, especially when nobody is home and I can listen to my favourite music, and relax. This pandemic giveth me harsh time, and my budget is not good at all, work is less. Well, we can make it. I smoke less and drink less. I have only one thing that keeps me calm not to “crush something” it’s https://baeys.com very useful thing. I like to take these sweet cbd gummies before bedtime with my girl. At that time I want to hug her and feel relaxation as possible as it can be.
