The Science of Medical Cannabis for Arthritis

The Science of Medical Cannabis for Arthritis Jason J. McDougall, Ph.D Mark A. Ware, Ph.D Quebec Forum on Arthritis 2016 65% of Canadians taking medical …


  1. Dr. Ware' claim that "cannabis is not a medicine" is bogus.

    "From 1850 to 1937, cannabis was used as the prime medicine for more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases in U.S. Pharmacopoeia.

    During all this time (until the 1940's), science, doctors, and drug manufacturers (Lilly, Parke-Davis, Squibb, etc.) had no idea of its active ingredients.

    Yet from 1842 until the 1890`s, marijuana, generally called Cannabis Indica or Indian Hemp extractums, was one of the three items (after alcool and opium) most used in patent and prescription drugs (in massive doses*, usually by oral ingestion).

    * Doses given during the 19th century to American infants, children, youth, adults, women in childbirth, and senior citizens, in one day, were, in many cases, equal to what a current moderate-to-heavy American marijuana user probably consume in a month or two, using U.S. government's 1983 guidelines for comparison.

    From the excellent book "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" by Jack Herer

    I invite Dr Mark A. Ware to visit the McGill Library and read on British physician W.B. O'Shaugnessy on the uses of cannabis medicines. French doctor Roche is also worth a read.

  2. Thanks for making this video. So sad only 4k views. If people could just search youtube for "Cannabis for Arthritis". I've been using Cannabis for 30+ years, keeps me healthy and free of all diseases. More people are realizing it's not harmful and have been lied to for decades. Cannabis will save humankind and hemp will save our economy. Mark my words and spread the word

  3. I had difficulty making use of my thumbs because of arthritis, therefore I could not understand things properly. Since I`ve been utilizing this arthritis treatment “rumrum shocking press” (Google it), my range of motion is much better and I don`t find myself sucking in my breath.

  4. You would think people should be free to use any substance that helps them with pain, depression or just help an individual to function at a better level. But for some reason outside my realm of thought, other people find it necessary to tell others what is best for them ! Just ludicrist! Mind your own fucking business! Let people do whatever they feel is best for them,, not you !!!
