Does CBD have a viable role in fighting cancer, slowing Alzheimer’s, and managing diabetes? Will it curb osteoporosis and eventually become the conventional remedy for anxiety and pain?
With research emerging but still spotty, more immediate answers for what’s really working for particular health conditions may come as a consensus of self-treating consumers respond anecdotally to the benefits of CDB. They are turning the CBD-dispensary business into a multi- billion-dollar industry.
“If the customers buy it again, we know it’s helping them” the CBD shop owner murmured to me. His comment gives me pause. It strikes me that, at least in this moment in time, it might not be enough to trust researchers and lawmakers to determine the answers to the complicated questions surrounding medical cannabis. Maybe we just need to follow the money.
