UK Government Acknowledges Medicinal Benefits of Cannabis
Medicinal Benefits of CBD Acknowledged in UK
The UK has acknowledged the medicinal benefits of cannabis. Specifically, the UK acknowledged the benefits of the cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol). According to the Independent, the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) has determined that CBD can have a restorative effect on physiological functions. In light of this acknowledgement, could this be the turning point?
Turning Point for Medicinal Benefits of Cannabis?
This may be a turning point in the effort to legalize cannabis in the UK. In addition, this may also be a turning point in a reclassification of the substance in the United States. Cannabis is currently a Schedule I drug in the US. One feature of Schedule I drugs is that they currently have no accepted medical use. At some point, in light of the evidence, the pendulum is bound to shift.
