Cannabinoids, natural and synthetic are in daily use in medicine worldwide.
From epilepsy in children to spasticity in multiple sclerosis and nausea in cancer patients – the use of Cannabinoids is growing. The immunological effects of CBD are some of the most interesting – along with the research into the protection of neurodegeneration of the brain in diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Cannabis oils, such as the ones you can buy without prescription on this website, are being used for all the diseases listed above, but also Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and even some cancers – with some pretty heavy (but preliminary) research being completed showing mechanisms of action.
