“Nearly 100 Conclusions on the Health Effects of Marijuana and Cannabis-Derived Products Presented in New Report; One of the Most Comprehensive Studies of Recent Research on Health Effects of Recreational and Therapeutic Use of Cannabis and Cannabis-Derived Products
WASHINGTON – A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine offers a rigorous review of scientific research published since 1999 about what is known about the health impacts of cannabis and cannabis-derived products – such as marijuana and active chemical compounds known as cannabinoids – ranging from their therapeutic effects to their risks for causing certain cancers, diseases, mental health disorders, and injuries. The committee that carried out the study and wrote the report considered more than 10,000 scientific abstracts to reach its nearly 100 conclusions. The committee also proposed ways to expand and improve the quality of cannabis research efforts, enhance data collection efforts to support the advancement of research, and address the current barriers to cannabis research.”
Compassionate South Carolina strongly supports the patient doctor relationship and to believe a doctor should be allowed to recommend to their patients whatever they feel could help alleviate their suffering. This is why we support comprehensive medical legislation that removes law makers from this precious relationship. Below we have linked resources for medical practitioners to help you make a comprehensive decision on supporting medical cannabis to patients with debilitating conditions. Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions we will be happy to address them one on one.
