Opioid abuse and addiction is a huge issue in the United States. In addition to this, long term use of these pain killers can lead to various health problems.
These are just a few of the reasons people are turning to healthier and natural to treat their pain.
The powerful health benefits of cannabis are becoming progressively accepted in mainstream society and are being reinforced by several recent studies.
Unfortunately, this does not change the stance of Big Pharma.
Opioid deaths decreasing where medical marijuana is legal
Researchers aren’t exactly sure why, but in the 23 U.S. states where medical marijuana has been legalized, deaths from opioid overdoses have decreased by almost 25 percent, according to a new analysis.
California, Oregon and Washington first legalized medical marijuana before 1999. Then 10 more states followed suit between then and 2010. Another 10 states and Washington, D.C. enacted similar laws since 2010.
For this study, Bachhuber, of the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of Pennsylvania, and his colleagues used state-level death certificate data for all 50 states between 1999 and 2010.
According to JAMA Medicine:
In states with a medical marijuana law, overdose deaths from opioids like morphine, oxycodone and heroin decreased by an average of 20 percent after just one year. After two years, they continued to decrease to 25 percent.
In the mean time, opioid overdose deaths across the country skyrocketed.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the death toll went from 4,030 in 1999 to 16,651 in 2010. Apparently the majority, 3 out of every 4 of these deaths included prescription pain medications.
One example is The Foria Relief Company. They have created vaginal cannabis suppositories using cocoa butter as the perfect alternative to pills like Vicodin, Midol and Ibuprofen.
The suppository helps relax muscles, preventing or soothing menstrual cramps.
Higher perspective reports:
The cannabis capsule is made from the extract of cannabis flower, all of which are pesticide-free. The active ingredients are processed without microbials and then packaged with a specific mix of 60 mg of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and 10 mg of CBD (cannabidiol).
The combination together creates the perfect effect to relieve pain. The THC helps send happy feelings to the brain, while the CBD helps promote relaxation of the muscles. This helps reduce muscle spasms as well as inflammation.
However, this effective natural remedy is only sold in California. It also is yet to be approved by the FDA.
Here is a short VIDEO on the cannabis capsule:

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!
