Marijuana Helps Mend Broken Bones

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.
