Assuming you haven’t lived under a rock for the last year, CBD has been claimed to be THE medicinal wonder product of 2019. Following the legalisation of medicinal cannabis in the UK during November 2018, the controversy and popularity about both CBD and THC products have grown exponentially. And now, the cannabis plant is even a star of the small screen.
On Wednesday night, BBC 2’s Horizon documentary series gave us the low down on the clinical opinions surrounding cannabis and its proclaimed uses. The documentary, “Cannabis: Miracle Medicine or Dangerous Drug?”, hosted by Dr Javid Abdelmoneim, investigates the latest medical and scientific research into the effects of cannabis on the brain and body.
Since November 2018, the global cannabis market and other such products like CBD oil has boomed. It is now one of the fastest-growing global markets of recent years with an estimated worth of $19 Billion by 2027.
Dr Abdelmoneim gives us a thoughtful and pragmatic view of the plant and its potential medicinal values. The Horizon documentary even breakdowns the stigma surrounding cannabis-derived products, showcasing the differences between products based on either THC and CBD and what the potential medicinal purposes are.
