Not exactly, but they’re working on it! Scientists at Temple University have been performing experiments with mice to see if they can somehow extract the cannaboid ingredient in Marijuana that alleviates pain as well as other things. This would, in theory, do what the drug is supposed to without getting you high. I’ve never even imagined the fact you could possibly do this, this is what the future looks like Philly reports:
“From what we’ve seen so far, it’s almost a complete prevention of the onset of the neuropathic pain,” said Ward, lead author of the study in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia.
The scientists did not test the drug’s ability to prevent nausea – a common use for medical marijuana. But cannabidiol has shown additional promise: Scientists have found that it can inhibit the growth of cancer cells in animals.
Still unclear is how the drug works in the body.
So yeah, they haven’t quite got it down yet, but I’m sure they’ll figure it out in the near future! If they could make this happen, it would make legalizing medical marijuana more appealing to those opposed to smoking & inconveniencing neighbors when you’re trying to medicate! With technology advancing so quickly, this only seems imminent to be available at dispensaries. But I must say, I LOVE BEING HIGH. I don’t get why anybody wouldn’t want to be high. Just saying.
