I read recently that cannabis is NOT considered a medicinal plant, but could be deemed ‘Therapeutic’.. consulting my collins dictionary for confirmation of these two terms:
1) medicine : substance used to treat disease.
medicinal : having ‘therapeutic’ properties
2) therapy : curing treatment
therapeutic : curing
So to me, they are interchangeable, appearing to basically mean the same thing. Again methinks this could be a bit of misinformation, being pushed to state that this plant does NOT have genuine ‘medicinal properties’.
I think it is more about ‘Big Pharma’ trying to claim total control of ‘approved medicines’ & exclude others; they either do not want to approve or know they really cannot patent or totally control the supply of ?
