It'd be great if it does.
They say they may synthesize the active ingredient. I'd prefer they get it from the plant, but if it works, it works.
Given it's anti inflammatory properties, it may be used for several other diseases. Inflammation is the culprit behind many diseases and conditions.
Tribal medicine men weren't all fakes as the movies and TV often portray them. A lot of what they used, with a little tweaking, became effective modern medicines.

At that age, I think most everyone I knew smoked weed. It was really common. I'm sure it still kinda is.
I haven't seen any headlines about brain mapping lately either. It was a big initiative a couple of years ago, but I don't know if something has changed regarding funding. I hope not.

My concern is that Pharmceutical companies change the chemical structure of drugs and often this creates side effects. That the drugs did not have. They never admit this until humans experience them.
They are making Pot pills. I do not want them. In college I smoked Pot sometimes on weekend and breaks. The pot we smoked was pot only. It helped us destress and relax. The side effect was hunger and being mellow. When people are stoned they are creative but, do not want to do thinks they dislike. Occasionally people get paranoid. People who smoke daily often become lazy and unmotivated. No one should drive stoned. Despite that I new people who drove fine. It is a bad idea. I am sure reflexes are slower when people use Pot. Smoking anything is a carcinogen.
If Pot where legal I might occasionally bake with it LOL. I do not like being stone. I must be alert for my son but, unlike tranquilizers Pot has no physical addition. It can help people sleep.
I have worked out since the eighties and its much better than any drugs. If more people new this they would not need drugs. You can't convince many people because they do not listen.
I do hope this drug will help Alzheimers patients.
What we really need is to fund more brain research. Our brain is placid throughout life and can be repaired. All Neurological Disorders can be repaired. I have not heard much about how mapping the brain is going lately.
