Why are so many people turning to cannabis over modern pharmaceuticals?

Cannabis has been widely used as medicine for over 4000 years which as been well documented by the second Chinese mythical Emperor Shennong. Throughout this talk we will discover the past and modern day uses of Cannabis based medicines, the discovery and importance of the endogenous cannabinoid system and the receptors within.

This talk covers the history of Cannabis for medicinal use (173 years ago William O'Shaughnessy discovered that CBD — Cannabis oil was a wonder medicine for paediatric epilepsy). Today in Britain we have a 6 year old boy named Alfie and his family who are pleading with the British government for safe access to Cannabis oil based medicine, children like Billy Caldwell in Ireland have been able to gain access to medicinal Cannabis… so why not Alfie in Britain? Follow me on a journey as we dispel myths and lies answering once and for all the question, is Cannabis really medicine? Together we will grow in knowledge and understanding as the talk will also cover medical conditions that greatly benefit from Cannabis, delivered from medicinal Cannabis patients who wish to share their stories for the Benefit of others, come with an open heart/ mind as we re-discover Cannabis as medicine, together.
