Yes I believe it does matter and your examples are not amusing, but perhaps worth writing about. I had not been aware of any countries who save more patients than they kill by following the pharmaceutical business model of treating primarily symptoms rather than primarily causes. Perhaps I’m mistaken. The science now available to document the benefits of CBD oil (primarily in doses low in the psychoactive portion) is quite extensive. (But don’t search pharmaceutical based research institutions)
The historical uses (100s of years, 1000s?) of the plant prior to about 90-100 years ago is also documented.
FYI On a related note: there is a Thai cancer clinic in the ploen chit area that I’ve personally gone to many times for non cancer issues, that does very good work. Also this clinic was one of several featured in a docuseries: The Truth About Cancer - Eastern Asia version. It is private of course and a bit pricy for Thai standards. One of the doctors there is an American MD who also has a clinic in Arizona- Oasis of Healing. They do not use CBD products yet to my knowledge.
