alternative medicine

I have read many articles about medical cannabis and how it can help you in terms of chronic pain, bone injuries, eating disorder/anorexia, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Like this article www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/honey-boo-boo/. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don’t even smoke. Alternatively, they’ve also found new ways to infuse cannabis on food and beverages. If this is true I can’t find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

    Good morning all, this is a fascinating topic and an important discussion in our culture, at this time. I do want to share a research study that was released at the 2016 Scientific Sessions, "Marijuana use may be linked to temporarily weakened heart muscle."   What are your thoughts on this topic? Thanks Katie

    Interesting article and one that doesn't really surprise me. We know the dangerous effects of smoking cigarettes on the heart so smoking anything would likely have a negative effect. Although the article talks of immediate short term effects, not long term. Often times studies can be contradictory to other studies so I think you have to evaluate each one carefully. That said, there seems to be enough evidence here that would convince me to avoid marijuana use. But we need to proceed cautiously with anything we ingest that could be deemed to be harmful. After my heart surgery, I posed a question to my cardiologist about drinking wine with dinner which is something I enjoy. She told me that if it's red wine, have two glasses. 

    Thanks for sharing.
