The hysteria that arose in the last century around the hemp, does not modern medicine to fully assess the therapeutic potential of this unique plant.
Despite the fact that both the US
and Mexico are now active in the fight against drugs, the situation with the use of cannabis for medical purposes
is slowly but surely changing. For example, Mexico has recently decided on the legalization of therapeutic cannabis. A series of laws proposed by President Enrique Nieto Penh, is aimed at enabling physicians to use psychoactive cannabis for medical purposes
In particular, by the Californian company Medical Marijuana Inc. and the Government of Mexico a few months ago was contracted to import into the territory of the state of oils containing cannabidiol (CBD)
. Subsidiary Medical Marijuana Inc., a company Hemp Meds, officially delivers on the markets of Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile
and Argentina are cannabis extracts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
. This product is made from the hemp plants grown according to the rules of organic farming - without using any fertilizers and pesticides. In addition, recently the Mexican government at the legislative level legalized the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes. Many experts, and local residents themselves, are confident that the medical reform will be the starting point in the fight against drug cartels.
Terms of the new system do not differ from those for the dissemination of therapeutic cannabis in the form of oils
. For example, is strictly prohibited the import of products with a high content of THC
, the psychoactive effects can have in their hand.
Director General of Medical Marijuana Inc Stuart Titus said that in 2014 a similar agreement was signed with the Government of Brazil. Hemp oil
is used by patients with chronic pain, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. As a result, the authorities were convinced that conventional drugs do not have such a positive effect, as medical cannabis. Also in Brazil, it was decided to use a cannabis extract for therapeutic effects on women infected with the virus Zika.
Unlike the United States
, Latin American countries welcome the use of homeopathic remedies based on local flora. In the case of recovery of positive reputation of cannabis considerably tainted by drug traffickers, this plant can be an excellent means of traditional medicine.
Mr. Titus himself considers hemp one of the most underrated of medicinal plants on the planet. Do not forget that most modern drugs contain herbal ingredients. The hysteria that arose in the last century around the hemp, does not modern medicine to fully assess the therapeutic potential of this unique plant. Stuart Titus confident that we are now obliged to return this, reckoning Drugs, the world culture.
