Medical Marijuana

Cannabidiol —CBD— is a compound in Cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “stoned.” After decades in which only high-THC Cannabis was available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown by and for medical users. The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich Cannabis strains may make it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and/or anti-spasm effects, without disconcerting euphoria or lethargy. Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored at several academic research centers in the U.S. and around the world. The scientists whose research inspired us to evaluate the effects of CBD have also found that other plant compounds —notably terpenoids— exert significant effects, too. Project CBD is not about trading one monomolecular focus for another. It’s about widening our perspective to learn how Cannabis actually affects us.

Our Intentions  Project CBD is a not- for-profit educational service dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the Cannabis plant. It was conceived by two journalists who have been covering the medical marijuana movement / industry in the pages of O’Shaughnessy’s. We think the reintroduction of CBD-rich Cannabis into the grassroots supply warrants special focus. With guidance from the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and support from California NORML, we intend to collect, aggregate and publish data from patients to determine patterns of efficacy—or lack of efficacy.

The Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC) was formed in the Autumn of 2004 by the member physicians of CCRMG to aid in the promulgation of voluntary standards for clinicians engaged in the recommendation and approval of cannabis under California law (HSC §11362.5).As the collaborative effort continues to move closer to issueing guidelines, this site serves as a public venue for airing and discussing these guidelines.

    Many thanks
