Response: Marijuana through history may well represent thousands of different strains, grown in uncontrolled back yards and environments, with pesticides, molds, and “additives”. However, we are in a new age in which strains are cultivated specifically to address specific health conditions. These strains are pure, clean and more importantly… they can be reproduced. Doses can be controlled and calculated while vaporizers can deliver a known amount of product. Newer formats of product will be even better, as they become available from “Health Canada” or FDA.
Components of high grade medical cannabis have been defined. These include more than just THC, but also antioxidants, terpenes and CBD levels. Even brain receptors responses to these products are now well defined. Neuro-feedback technology can also “map” the brain’s response to such products. The natural marriage of components in medical cannabis have not been reproduced by the pharmaceutical industry, much to their dismay as this fact has denied them of billions of dollars in profit.
