Categories: Health and Medicine
Russian doctors and biochemists have begun the search for a "medical" marijuana, which has no side effects in the form of psychoses and other negative phenomena. On the work in this direction told reporters Yevgeny Bryun — freelance psychiatrist-narcologist of the Ministry of health of the Russian Federation. Studies related to the fact that the Russian medicine is seriously interested in the use of cannabis for medical purposes.
The domestic scholars is not an easy task. They must find a kind of cannabinoid that will not negatively affect the mental state of patients and to provide other types of negative impact on the human body.
Dr. Brun pointed out that Smoking is much safer in regard to the impact on the human psyche than cannabis use. Tobacco can cause psychosis one person out of tens of millions of smokers. Marijuana in this respect is much more dangerous — the chance of experiencing side effects, act on the psyche, the smokers hundreds of times higher.
According to official data, every hundredth fan of "grass" is faced with acute violations of the psyche. While narcologists warn that we are not talking about mild psychosis, and schizophreniform conditions, difficult-to-treat all over the world. In other words, marijuana addiction can lead to disability and so today on the legalization of cannabis in the territory of Russia can not be considered.
While Eugene Brune does not deny the possibility of the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Today we already have such experience abroad, for example, in the United States and Canada. Started to use cannabis in exceptional cases and in certain countries of the European Union.In a strictly dosed quantities of marijuana give patients of hospices and medical institutions, which provide assistance to the terminal patients. It also happens that the purpose of marijuana is associated with facilitating the care of human life. Hemp can accelerate death — sure not only Yevgeny Bryun, but a group of researchers from Australia.
European countries where marijuana use for medical purposes
Professionals Australia has carried out serious work on the study of cannabinoids and came to the conclusion that the medical benefits of marijuana are greatly exaggerated. The results of the work of the Australians was presented in early November 2019 in several medical journals and at industry conferences.
The researchers analyzed many of the episodes use marijuana to treat mental disorders and came to the conclusion that over the last 40 years there is no single case when the tool has had a clear positive effect on patients.
Have studied dozens of typical and unusual cases of depression, hyperactivity and attention deficit and almost always marijuana only aggravates the condition of patients, increasing their anxiety. Moreover, in addition to their problems, many patients received one more addiction.
Considering all the above, we can assume that the expected number of Russians notorious "legalize" in the near future just will not come.
