Jacob Vigil: the truth about medicinal cannabis

From Sunday Morning, 11:24 am on 17 March 2019

Associate Professor Jacob M. Vigil at the Department of psychology at the University of New Mexico has been looking at the effects of medicinal cannabis products, in particular the marijuana compound CBD, or cannabinol. The product's enjoying a surge in popularity throughout the wellness community being touted as having numerous health benefits with the side effects normally associated with marijuana, such at getting high. The evidence uncovered by Doctor Vigil and a new report's co-authors, casts doubt on those claims, as they've discovered marijuana's main ingredient, THC, which also gives users a high, is actually what is responsible for the plant's therapeutic effects. He explains to Jim how they have researched the effects of both CBD and TCH and what they've discovered.
