    It has been shown to help with the side effects of chemo.

    Any claims that it helps fight cancer, that's just BS.

    The "other" active ingredient in cannabis, CBD (cannabidiol) has shown promise in some research papers. For instance, this study below regarding prostate cancer. As I posted above, CBD has no THC, and does not get you "high". But it does come from cannabis. CBD is normally low in concentration with strains bred to be high in THC. So it's misunderstood, but you can get it mail order no problem in most states.
    Treatment with Cannabis extract containing high CBD down regulates CB1, CB2, VEGF, PSA, pro-inflammatory cytokines/chemokine IL-6/IL-8. Our overall findings support the concept that cannabidiol, which lacks psychotropic activity, may possess anti-inflammatory property and down regulates both cannabinoid receptors, PSA, VEGF, IL-6 and IL-8. High CBD cannabis extracts are cytotoxic to androgen responsive LNCaP cells and may effectively inhibit spheroid formation in cancer stem cells. This activity may contribute to its anticancer and chemosensitizing effect against prostate cancer.

    what I await to see is how many acres being slated for wine production will instead be used for weed. Cheaper, easier to grow, no 5-7 years of $ loss while they grow and more $ per acre @ harvest

    Got to agree 99%. Light pot has just been legalized in my country and I have to say I'm reaping some rewards out of it. I've been having troubles falling asleep for years now and finally with cannabis oil I can fall asleep in a matter of 15 minutes instead of the usual 2/3 hours.
    Still,I'm not a pothead and I can't stand pot evangelists much..

    that's how i always start, by simply enjoying its deliciousness.

    if i drink enough the get a buzz, that's just a wonderful bonus.

    This article predicts that people, especially women, will switch from wine to weed to avoid unnecessary calories. But they are ignoring the "munchie factor".
    Completely absurd. Smoking anything is prohibited in most public places and in nearly all mid-level apartment complexes--even in your apartment. Further, those with brain cells really are not likely to tolerate being in the same space with those who are blowing smoke. While wine also makes you stupid, it does not impact the air that others in the area are breathing.


    Further, for whatever reason, casual wine use doesn't carry the stereotype that pot users enjoy/endure/earn.

    That's why edibles are so great.
