Did the World Health Organization declare medical marijuana has no health risks?

Claim: The World Health Organization has declared that medical marijuana has no health risks.

What's True: The World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence announced they considered the non-psychoactive component of cannabis — cannabidiol or CBD — safe enough to justify not scheduling the chemical legally.

Despite statewide legalization, many California towns have banned marijuana

Over a third of the state is a “pot desert” where locals must drive at least 60 miles to find a legal cannabis store.

In November 2016, 57% of California voters said yes to Proposition 64, a ballot measure legalizing the recreational use and sale of cannabis throughout the Golden State.

But Prop 64 also allows individual municipalities to “opt out” of allowing legal canna-businesses in their jurisdictions, and a surprising majority of towns and cities have chosen to do just that.

Hey USDA: We can grow cannabis with “organic” methods, too

To guarantee that whatever canna-products you’re imbibing are pure and clean, it’s key that they’ve been officially tested and certified by one of the programs now available in the adult-use market.

The booming industry of CBD hemp oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is one of the most sought-after cannabis products due to its multiple therapeutic properties.

Without psychoactive effects but with a highly appreciated relaxing, anti-inflammatory, antiemetic and anticonvulsant potential, CBD has proved to effectively alleviate seizures in those diagnosed with the Dravet syndrome. Its qualities are so many that more and more people are starting to cultivate hemp to extract oil from it on the grounds that the legislation in question is far more favorable than marijuana regulations.
