Marijuana is currently gaining popularity as a therapy at an accelerated rate, but one problem that persists with cannabis is that the medication varies widely among the different strains and different forms of consumption. Many of the vehicles for consuming marijuana, for example smoking marijuana or vaporizing cannabis concentrates, aren't typical of the medical industry, which for many medical marijuana opponents reinforces the idea that the plant is not truly a medication. In addition, the potency and effects of the medication vary widely not only by the way it is consumed, but also by the concentration of cannabinoids in different strains. Now, a medical cannabis company is manufacturing and selling cannabis in pill form, a form of medication that is generally widely accepted in the medical industry. 

Medical cannabis pills are not only great because they mimic the pharmaceutical industry, which will help reinforce its image as a legitimate medication, but also because they standardize the chemical makeup of the medication so that each pill consistently delivers the same therapeutic experience. The company developing the pills, MMJ PhytoTech, has decided to use a CBD-only strain of marijuana in its capsules so that it can deliver symptom relief without the psychoactive side effects that sometimes accompany THC. The company says CBD is effective in helping relieve the symptoms of chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease, atibiotic-resistant infections, and various neurological ailments.

MMJ PhytoTech's CBD pills are now available over the internet in Europe, and we hope to see similar products appear in the United States. Read more about the company and its CBD pills on BlazeNow here.
