“Patients’ Perceptions and Use of Medical Marijuana”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 22 luglio 2019

The Global Healthy Living Foundation urges 2020 Presidential candidates to support the rescheduling of marijuana so that it, along with CBD products, can be tested under controlled parameters and with peer review to assess their safety, dosing, and effectiveness, arming both patients and doctors with the best available evidence to make informed treatment decisions. Presently, cannabis remains illegal and classified as a Schedule 1 drug under federal law (defined as being “of no medical use”). Following passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, however, which legalized the regulated production of hemp, along with 33 U.S. states that have legalized the usage of marijuana for medical purposes, many chronic disease patients are trying tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) products to treat serious conditions, such as rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease.
According to the “Patients’ Perceptions and Use of Medical Marijuana” study conducted and presented by CreakyJoints®, a Global Healthy Living Foundation patient community, 57 percent of arthritis patients have reported trying marijuana and/or CBD products for medical purposes. Despite the study finding that 62 percent of those who use marijuana medically regularly use it at least once daily, a third of regularly using participants chose not to tell their healthcare provider about their use of these substances.
It’s time to reschedule marijuana so that it can be studied with the same rigor as other treatments and we urge 2020 Presidential candidates to make this an important objective of their healthcare platform,” he added.To help inform medical decisions, the Global Healthy Living Foundation also asks that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) develop and approve clinical trials and conduct proper research to provide doctors and patients with adequate data on the effects of THC and CBD on arthritis and other conditions.
