Scientific Evidence for Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis is backed by extensive scientific research, highlighting the diverse therapeutic potential of its cannabinoids. As one of the few U.S. cannabis companies with a schedule 1 DEA license for research, we proudly collaborate with universities and healthcare systems to advance the science of medical cannabis. 

By pushing these boundaries of knowledge, we are actively contributing to medical cannabis research, ensuring better treatment options for all.

Pain Relief
Medical cannabis has been found to be effective in treating chronic pain, including neuropathic pain, which is often difficult to treat with traditional painkillers.

Anxiety and Depression
Cannabinoids have been shown to have anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects in animal models and clinical trials.

Nausea and Vomiting
Cannabinoids have been found to be effective in reducing nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Cannabinoids have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, which may be useful in treating a variety of conditions such as Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions.

Sleep Disorders
Cannabis has been found to be effective in treating sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea. Georgia patients who suffer from sleep disturbances due to a qualifying condition may benefit from this type of cannabis therapy.

The History of Medical Cannabis

The historical use of cannabis for medicinal purposes spans thousands of years across various cultures. However, restrictions and bans arose in the 20th century due to concerns about abuse. In the 1970s, research resumed, leading to the legalization of medical cannabis in countries like the Netherlands and Canada. California was the first U.S. state to legalize it in 1996, followed by many others.

Today, medical cannabis treats a wide range of conditions, including those recognized by Georgia state law. Ongoing research suggests cannabinoids hold therapeutic potential. Despite challenges, medical cannabis enjoys increasing acceptance from patients, healthcare providers, and policymakers worldwide.
