Re: “Fact: Smoking Marijuana Reduces Pain

The percentage of THC means very little. It's mg of THC that count. Marinol dosage is 2.5-20mg/day for simple appetite stimulation and 5-90mg/day for chemotherapy applications. A gram of medical grade cannabis that is 20% THC (very few strains, and only grown under great conditions) will yield 20mg of THC.

However, that's a very small part of the picture. Cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, CBG, THCV, and many others contribute to the "high" or "stone" of any given strain. This translates directly to the medical benefits of that strain. Some strains give you the munchies more than others, for example. Some strains make people paranoid; those would not be good for someone with PTSD. If this sounds complicated, it gets even more so when we bring terpenes into the picture.

This research would have all been done 30 years ago or more, but my Government (yeah, that's a BIG G) has brainwashed the masses for so long into believing that this gift from the Gods was somehow a "devil weed" that they seem unable to give up on the lie. After all, taking me and putting me in a cage for peacefully smoking a plant gives jobs to judges, police, and prison guards, and we can't take away jobs... unless your job is ganja farmer.
