IMO: it works.

This is my personal opinion. I myself am a fan, as it quells my physical symptoms like nausea, arthritis and fibromyalgia. It also eases neurological symptoms like insomnia and anxiety, so I feel quite normal and functional when I smoke, take CBD oil or have an edible.

There are different strains for so many ailments.

From fatigue to insomnia to anxiety, you can customize your strain to fit your needs and eradicate your symptoms. How crazy, it's like Cannabis is medicine! (Because it is.)

If you have a chronic condition, you can apply for a legal license in the U.S.

I use this medicinally, and I'm thankful that it helps me feel better. In America, medical Cannabis is legal in 25 states and D.C.
