It is well said that nature is a great healer. True to the fact, almost every ailment can be cured by the gift of natural medicines. Many studies have progressed in the effective usage of a variety of flora available for their best effects. It could be traced back to ages where old Indian Ayurvedic practices have only used medicinal herbs for every required treatment. The discovery of the properties of herbs, along with the pacing advancement in science, has led to the usage of naturally available herbs in homeopathy and allopathy. Being eco-friendly and less harmful, natural herbs are surely replacing many synthetic chemicals.
Along with oralmedicines, several oils and scents are also manufactured for the treatment of psychological issues using these drugs externally. One of the drugs which are quite commonly used is cannabinoid oil (CBD OIL), belonging tothe cannabis family. These herbs are hypnotic and are thus used under prescription. CBD products have originated as oneof the compounds in marijuana, which is a well-known hypnotic drug in the medical industry.
The darker side
Despite these pros, few countries in Europe and the USA and some scattered Asian countries are only allowed to manufacturing these drugs under license. Before the research studies came forth, one couldn’t possibly imagine the harm of the psychoactive drugs since they weren’t immediate but badly affectedin the long run. Changes in mood, appetite, and functions of organs like the liver and gut system have shaken the medical industry. There is evidence proof to show the negative effects of CBD products, hemp, or marijuana products. Still, being externally used if within prescribed limits and under medical guidance can be effective in their properties.
If the medicine flourished, so did the trade. Companies producing these effervescent oils and drugs have taken undue advantage of their properties and have been found manufacturing drugs with hampered compositions. Studies have witnessed a growth rate of 22% in sales in the last decade, and there is an expected rise of 18% in the coming years. Such malpractices have hit many small companies badly, and the manufacturing of cannabis oils came out as a licensed act in many countries.
A final word may conclude the usage of naturally available herbs is quitter effective if used according to the needs and requirements of the patients. Moreover, the manufacturing of the drugs should be encouraged in more ethical ways.
