Marijuana Helps Bones Heal, Unfortunately, Doesn’t Require Psychotropic Properties

Those looking to get their medical marijuana prescription just got a new injury to inflict upon themselves and claim: broken bones. Next seen, broken baby toes everywhere.

Researchers have discovered that the cannabidiol compound found in marijuana has helped rats with broken limbs. Unfortunately, for all you medicinal marijuana searchers, cannadibiol (CBD) used to heal bones does not require THC  meaning it is non-psychotropic.

The compound “markedly enhanced” the bone healing process, according to Israeli researchers, and in addition to mending those broken bones, CBD allowed for new mineralization of bone tissue leaving bones stronger and harder to break in the future.

Lead researcher Dr. Yankel Gabet thinks this is proof enough to have clinical trials as that would be the direct route for most substances that aren’t marijuana related. Unfortunately, because this is pot, non-psychotropic pot, basically non-alcoholic beer, there is drama. Dr. Gabet says, “While there is still a lot of work to be done to develop appropriate therapies, it is clear that it is possible to detach a clinical therapy objective from the psychoactivity of cannabis.” But why would you want to? Breaking a bone is painful and while it heals wouldn’t it be nice to ease through that pain with a little THC? Yeah, I think everyone can agree upon that.
