With all the hype about cannabis these days, CBD has been complicated and controversial, but over the years, dozens of studies have found evidence to support the use of cannabidiol, and they can cure just about anything (e.g., chronic pain, PTSD, depression, anxiety, seizures). More importantly, nothing is more convincing than seeing the results.
For example, medical cannabis helped provide relief from pain and other symptoms for Ed Snider, who co-founded the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and owned the team for nearly 50 years. He died in 2016 of metastatic bladder cancer at his home in Montecito, California. He was 83. His daughter Lindy Snider, currently a cannabis industry investor, told Elevated Nation, “Toward the end, he had a lot of pain. He had a pump that delivered more traditional pain medicine to the body, but ultimately those were not really working. His nurses suggested cannabis. Now, this was in California where medical cannabis has been legal for some time. Eventually, our family spoke with the nurses and we thought this would be helpful to him.”
The Sniders are also good friends of Dr. Mehmet Oz, who’s very well known as a host of an eponymous television show on health and medical issues. “It changed his life. Instead of being on narcotics or completely in sleep all the time, he lived the last months of his life because he was on CBD to deal with the pain. It helped with cancer and anorexia,” Oz chimes in. “I have never used it personally but I have never had a chronic problem that wouldn’t be, well, manageable. I know of people, I’ve coved them on the show, that used CBD for their child’s seizures, and I have a very close family friend whose son had a traumatic brain injury. He couldn’t sleep and he used CBD to help. And, I had a relative with cancer, breast cancer, who got relief from CBD.”
“I think there is a lot of potential in using CBD in medicine. An FDA panel recently unanimously voted to approve a CBD-based drug for two seizure disorders. Since CBD has no psychoactive properties, it doesn’t carry the stigma associated with cannabis,” he adds. “What I think is going to happen is that we are going to have two different types of products. We are going to have those developed by pharma companies and they are going to be able to make claims that their CBD drug can treat certain conditions, and then we are going to have products that are marketed more like as supplements on a state-by-state basis and won’t be able to make specific claims. As a doctor, I would like to see more research so that we can prescribe cannabis as a treatment, but right now, that is very difficult to do without studies.”
