Many when faced with a serious illness fight for their life but ironically are prescribed medications that in fact not only cause harm but also are capable of taking their life. Many prescription side effects are quite lengthy. Those that are on prescriptions long-term end up requiring even more medication down the line to combat the side effects from the first drug. With all that in mind patients are looking for a safer alternative solution.
From cancers to anxiety many prescribed therapies are not only dangerous but can cause death. Chemotherapy has come a long way from the early days but it is still a drug that ravages the body. By contrast research has shown that cannabinoid therapies induce programmed cell death in cancerous cells. Cannabinoids as is widely known are praised for their ability to alleviate without any reported deaths throughout its historic, several thousand year use.
Although the official stance from the government is that cannabis has no accepted medical value science tells us otherwise. Below you will see a study that weighs the harm of accepted drug therapies such as opioids. As always I encourage all to do their own research and please feel free to share ~ Cherry Girl
Prescribing Cannabis For Harm Reduction 2012
Neuropathic pain affects between 5% and 10% of the US population and can be refractory to treatment. Opioids may be recommended as a second-line pharmacotherapy but have risks including overdose and death. Cannabis has been shown to be effective for treating nerve pain without the risk of fatal poisoning. The author suggests that physicians who treat neuropathic pain with opioids should evaluate their patients for a trial of cannabis and prescribe it when appropriate prior to using opioids. This harm reduction strategy may reduce the morbidity and mortality rates associated with prescription pain medications.
