Medicinal cannabis resulted in an 'improvement in general health' in adults with autism



On this Dr Erridge said: “There is some pre-clinical evidence which has sought to assess whether cannabidiol and other aspects of cannabis can affect the way that the Covid virus binds to specific receptors in the lungs.”

Discussing the benefits of cannabis for cancer patients, the doctor commented back in April: “With respect to treating cancer there is obviously some really promising preclinical evidence in terms of looking at the response to cancer cells in a petri dish and response in animal models in terms of their response to cancer, but there haven’t been any significant [human] trials that have reported results in cancer.”

While there are some studies which suggest medicinal cannabis could help treat cancer, there are also those who say it could cause it.
