Researchers have proved that cannabis can help to treat bone fractures in the body. Researchers found that the non-psychotropic element in cannabis – the element that does not lead to the user experiencing a high – known as cannabidiol (CBD), significantly sped up the healing process for fractured leg bones in rats after eight weeks.

Researchers have also found due to its healing properties in the body, it helps to treat various conditions like osteoporosis and also other degenerative bone diseases. Dr. Yankel Gabet of Tel Aviv University, who led the study, said: “The clinical potential of cannabinoid-related compounds is simply undeniable at this point.” Multiple experiments and researchers have shown that CBD is a safe agent for the body which proves extremely useful in improving the fracture healings. CBD primarily has anti-inflammatory properties and no psychotropic effects which can help in cannabis-based therapy without any negative effect on the person’s body.

Once the bones are treated with cannabis treatment, it becomes harder to break the bone and it becomes comparatively stronger. Cannabis is largely illegal across Europe and can result in users experiencing hallucinations and delusions, while long-term use can have a depressant effect. Some countries do allow for its use in medicinal purposes. In the UK, cannabis is a Class B drug, meaning that the maximum penalty for possession is five years in prison and an unlimited fine.

The Drug can be purchased in the UK, Germany, and Italy, among other European countries. Among the survey, around 87% of cannabis involved therapy has always proved the success.
