Scientists Develop Prototype Drug To Prevent Osteoporosis Based On Cannabinoids Produced By Body

Substances produced in the body that act like those found in the cannabis plant help preserve bone density, according to researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Based on this finding, a prototype for a new drug to prevent osteoporosis (loss of bone density) without any psychoactive side effects has already been developed.

Does this mean we should be smoking pot? I think I'd rather eat cannabis cookies. :- :- :-

Dusty, \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ !

Merri, cannabis cookies......hehehehehe, do you have a recipe?

:-) :-) :-)

I forgot to answer this! No I don't have a recipe, but I've been assured in good faith that stems are used rather than the more expensive smoking leaf. Apparently it's ground up and added to the flour - in what proportions I wouldn't know. Also chocolate can be melted, powder added, and let set again, but retains a grittiness I believe - supposed to be good for anyone with terminal cancer pain, unable to swallow the cookies. Or off their tucker on chemotherapy, is supposed to stop queeziness.

I have a feeling that it may stop a lot of things! :-

But do agree that cannabis should be available to terminal cases.

Of course it should! Another example of human stupidity!
