In the latest victory for those seeking Medical Cannabis oil for sale in the United States, Florida has approved a bill which will allow for the regulated cultivation and distribution of “Charlotte’s Web”, a low THC, high Cannabidiol (CBD) strain developed by the Stanley brothers out of CO. This strain has received major recognition over the last year due to high profile Television coverage as well as it’s purported effects on several conditions, epilepsy in particular. There have been some amazing stories of success from families of children using oils and extracts derived from this high CBD strain to regulate life threatening seizures and many reports of families uprooting their lives and making the pilgrimage to CO to begin a new life with safe access to this high CBD strain.
Florida’s move makes them the latest state that is looking to draw a line in the sand legally speaking, when it comes to looking at CBD outside of the specter of THC misinformation and regulation, and giving patients seeking medical cannabis oil for sale an option for trying this particular Cannabinoid as a holistic remedy for the treatment of some really horrible afflictions. Florida’s version is especially promising in that it makes provisions for a fixed number of dispensaries and nurseries to produce Charlotte’s Web plants, thereby negating the need to use inferior herb supplied from NIDA and the pot farm at UMiss, making for a better quality of medical cannabis oil for sale.
Once the understanding that CBD negates many of the effects of THC becomes more commonplace, hopefully the laws will begin to allow smaller amounts of THC to be present in the products, as it is ultimately dangerous to view medical marijuana oil as “good and bad” Cannabinoids, or one’s that get you “high” and one’s that don’t and ultimately the entourage effects of many of the cannabinoids working in concert will have to be understood and respected when discussing medicinal marijuana oil and medical cannabis oil for sale in the United States. But until then, these early laws mark important victories for families seeking safe access to this potentially life saving substance that has been cloaked in bad law for far too long now. Every single one of these laws that pass underscores the need for Cannabis to be moved from Schedule one status to a status that reflects its true medicinal value.
Another exciting development in the Florida bill is that it was amended to provide coverage for patients with both Cancer and ALS, recognizing the benefits of this marijuana oil for pain and other debilitating conditions where some of the other states bills have been a bit more narrow in scope, with the primary focus being on severe epilepsy. Making medical Cannabis oil for sale available to a wider spectrum of patients will be key in moving forward with new medical marijuana oil blends tailored for different patients with different needs.
