How to Unleash the Medical Magic of the Cannabis Plant

Federal Support of CBD Research Could Be Catalyst for the Medical Marijuana Industry 

John Poss

Chairman and CEO of GB Sciences, Inc.



The legal cannabis industry continues to be one of the fastest growing areas of North America’s economy. The legalization of medical cannabis in Canada and many American states has fostered a thriving medical cannabis industry over the past decade, consisting of everything from pharmaceutical companies to retail specialists. With recreational use now legal in several states, the industry is set to blossom further.

On April 13th President Donald Trump announced unprecedented support of legalizing marijuana. This is a very big step for companies that are researching CBDs (cannabidiols) found in marijuana and other products for consumers, and patients. CBD is a natural substance obtained from hemp plants that can promote wellness without any psychoactive or intoxicating effectsChuck Schumerand the democrats also recently introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana on the federal level. This is extremely important in helping company’s research marijuana and, more importantly, cannabinoids. These moves by democrats, and the President, could be a massive catalyst for companies involved in the industry.
