    Cannabis has been stigmatized for decades, but scientists and society cannot deny that the plant's active ingredients, known as Cannabinoids, provide a natural remedy to a host of health issues. While CBD, extracted from the cannabis plant, is structurally similar to THC, part of the allure is that it won't get you high.
    CBD is now the most researched cannabinoid on the market and rightly so because the studies go back to the 1940s proving its effectiveness on the nervous and immune systems

    CBD is a most amazing extract. Obviously, BigPharma sees it as a major threat, given its numerous healing properties. The ability to combat "oxidative stress" alone makes CBD a miracle ingredient. I don't know much about it, but thanks to this article, I will spend more time learning more about CBD.

    The FDA has approved a CBD product, called Epidiolex, for primarily treatment of epilepsy. A year's supply of Epidiolex will cost about $32,500, which apparently is competitive with the cost of other drugs used to treat epilepsy. Since it's FDA approved, it is more likely health insurance plans and state Medicaid programs will help cover cost.

    I wonder how much insurance plans will "help cover cost" on a wildly inflated $32,500 drug. With most states now legalizing medical cannabis and some states legalizing the recreational use (as the entire country of Canada just did), it's ludicrously easy and affordable to pick up the small amount of cannabis needed to control epileptic seizures. While the strain Charlotte's Web has received the most publicity, virtually any strain of mj will have the same effect.

    GW Pharmaceuticals--the London-based maker of the new CBD drug, Epidiolex--is trying to arrange for financing to help people pay for the drug. At a cost of roughly $2,500 per month for the drug, GW Pharma recognizes that the 55% of estimated patients using the drug would be insured by Medicare or Medicaid and cannot afford to pay full cost for the drug. If GW secures the financing to help patients pay for the drug, most Medicare/Medicaid patients would have a co-pay of between $5 - $10 per month, while commercial insurance patients would have a co-pay of $50 - $200 per month.
    As expected, GW Pharma claims that Epidiolex is expensive because it is unique and the therapeutic concentrations of CBD required to make the drug were substantial, and could not be duplicated using other medical marijuana CBD products.

    Knowing the sophistication of a variety of methods of turning the components of cannabis into useful form, this strikes me as an awfully superficial excuse. It's all about corporate profit in the end, both pharmaceutical and insurance companies. I call it scandalous.

    I thought that statement would grab your attention. It is scandalous. Agree 100%.

    LOL, yup. Even over the counter (as opposed to under it), a couple of dead presidents would procure all you need for some long-lasting CBD-filled pain relief.
