Scientific curiosity has spurred decades of experimental research and clinical trials that show the complex relationship between cannabis and the inner workings of the human body.
Long before Big Canna came along and made medical marijuana a booming business, a small number of scientists toiled in relative obscurity on shoestring budgets in universities around the world.
These brave souls often suffered ridicule at the hands of colleagues doing “real science.”
Undaunted, and unfettered by the strings attached to funding from Big Pharma and other multinationals, these men and women of science, these pioneers of cannabis research, have collectively produced a rich body of work over the past 50 years.
These fascinating findings have been mainly confined to scientific journals.
Today, it’s becoming more difficult to find scientists who ridicule medical research aimed discovering new medications derived from cannabis extracts.
With legal marijuana soon to be sold in corner stores all over Canada, this research deserves a closer look.
Bank-rolled, investor-owned cannabis companies are quietly doing their own research and clinical trials. We can expect them to take the credit for this “ground-breaking research.”
Let’s hope they follow the example of Sir Issac Newton – who famously said: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders on giants.
Yes – we do stand on the shoulders of those early scientists who have come before us.
Now let’s shine a light on what these giants of cannabis research have been quietly discovering all along.
It’s the right thing to do.
