Scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel have discovered that a component of cannabis significantly helps speeds up the healing of bone fractures and may also be used to treat bone-related diseases. The study found that the non-psychotropic cannabidiol or CBD considerably sped up the healing process of rats' broken leg bones and the benefits were also present even when the molecule was separated from THC, the major psychoactive component of cannabis. Not only does marijuana encourage the healing process, it also prevents future injury.

"The inhalation of one marijuana cigarette per day over a 20-year period is not associated with adverse changes in lung health, according to data published online ahead of print in the journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society. Investigators at Emory University in Atlanta assessed marijuana smoke exposure and lung health in a large representative sample of US adults age 18 to 59. Researchers reported that cannabis exposure was not associated with FEV1 (forced expiratory volume) decline or deleterious change in spirometric values of small airways disease."
