Brits Certify CBD As Medicinie
Funny how a totalitarian state like England can be so far ahead of us on medicines. From the S.F. Chronicle:
"The British government has acknowledged that marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes. Officials from the U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) recently announced that products containing cannabidiol (CBD) can be considered medicine, reports the Huffington Post. 'We have come to the opinion that products containing cannabidiol are a medicine,' said the MHRA, in a statement to the press. 'Products for therapeutic use must have a medicines' license before they can be legally sold, supplied or advertised in the UK. Products will have to meet safety, quality and effectiveness standards to protect public health.' The review came as a result of discussions with the CBD vaporizer company MediPen, and concluded that CBD has a 'restoring, correcting or modifying' effect on 'physiological functions' when administered to humans."
