“No stems, no seeds that you don’t need, Acapulco Gold is bad-ass weed”, to plagiarize a jingle from Cheech and Chong, almost 50 years ago.  Never mind stems and seeds, or even bad-ass weed, but learn about cannabidiol– CBD.  It is one of the main cannabinoids that is not psychoactive but has powerful medical properties.  It is a very good anti-inflammatory agent.  Many seniors use it in ointment for arthritic hands, elbows, shoulders, even backs.  CBD also has anti-cancer properties and while rumors and anecdotes abound, scientific research has shown it to be effective for gliomas– a specific type of brain cancer.  Now, it may be useful for eye and vision issues:

I have first hand knowledge that this is untrue and was likely funded by Big Pharma to cast doubt about a plant that can reduce opiate use and promote sleep, not to mention that CBD is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory drugs available.  The blatant lies to get funding from Big Pharma just amaze me– scientists selling out the truth for money!

While smoking cannabis may be how researchers tested, or noted, the efficacy, eating cannabis provides a more even, time-release, and may therefore be a better alternative to smoking, which spikes blood content of the cannabinoids quickly, followed by a faster decline.

It may also help Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients, too.
