The Challenge Medical Marijuana Patients Probably Didn't See Coming

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

While the United States government refuses to admit the cannabis plant has any real medicinal benefit, its position has not prevented federal health agencies, over the years, from approving synthetic versions of the herb’s psychoactive component to be used by Big Pharma in the treatment of serious conditions.

The beauty industry loves new ingredients — as witnessed by the use of such gems as Cochineal beetles (skin creams, lipstick, etc.), bird poop for a Geisha facial and whale vomit – or ambergris – for making perfume.

“Growing support for legalization and an increased awareness of the potential benefits of cannabis are the driving forces behind this ingredient,” said Victoria Buchanan, trend analyst at The Future Laboratory, to The Telegraph.
