Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Virginia Senate 40-0

Written by: Kat Gal

Cannabis has been legalized in yet another state!

On February 12th, the Virginia Senate voted to pass the Joint Commission on Health Care bill SB 726 only a few days after its companion House Bill, HB 1251 was passed on February 16th.

In case you haven’t heard of this bill, this will allow medical doctors in the state of Virginia to recommend cannabidiol oil (THC-A) for the treatment of any diagnosed disease or medical condition

Senator Siobhan Dunnavant, a doctor and the chief patron of the bill, stated that according to current literature, medical cannabis is an effective treatment. Cannabis can help people with a variety of conditions, including Crohn’s disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and PTSD. CBD/THC-A oil can safely help patients manage their pain. It can provide relief from the harsh side-effects of chemotherapy.

How to treat certain conditions should be determined by doctors, not legislature. After the passing of these bills, doctors can just do that. It is giving doctors the freedom to make informed recommendations based on research evidence. This bill also allows the access to safe and regulated medical cannabis to patients in Virginia.

This is just the beginning of the implementation of a successful medical cannabis program. Medical cannabis is legal in 30 states. The cannabis industry is exploding and medical cannabis is predicted to become an important part of treatment plans in the future.

What do you think about the legalization of medical cannabis? Have you ever experienced the benefits of medical cannabis for any health condition? Have you ever tried THC-free CBD oil for pain relief? Share with us in the comments below!
