Yes, cannabis is medicine. Cannabis is the only true non-toxic medicinal compound that we know, and while it can be used recreationally, there are a myriad of reasons it can be used medicinally.
The Medical Efficacy of Cannabis
Up until the 1930’s, up to 6% of all medicines contained some amount of cannabis or cannabinoids.
