Generalised Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a very common and impairing condition and today – despite several guidelines or consensus statements issued over the past few years – its management still remains a huge problem. 

Social anxiety disorder (formerly known as "social phobia") is a much more common problem than past estimates have led us to believe.  Millions of people all over the world suffer from this devastating and traumatic condition every day, either from a specific social anxiety or from a more generalised social anxiety.

After Healing His Own Cancer with Cannabis, Self-Taught Doctor Helped over 5000 Patients

“I always tell people – Cannabis will cure you, and you will see that at present, it is the best cure there is in the world!” Rick Simpson, one of the world’s cannabis icons and activists for legalisation of marijuana, has healed more than 5000 people with cannabis oil – after he was diagnosed with the most severe skin cancer in 2002 and cured the dreaded disease using hemp oil.

The Rise of Cannabis in Modern Medicine

Over the last 5-10 years cannabis has been coming into the global spotlight more and more, with campaigns for its legalisation growing at a massive rate. Many US states have made it state law that it may be prescribed by doctors for a wide variety of ailments, and others have even made it legal or decriminalised its possession for recreational use. Conversely, state law has yet to catch up with this entirely and it is still a federal felony to grow or possess cannabis. As this movement has grown in the US, other countries around the world have seen this as an opportunity to relax their own legislation on cannabis and drugs in general. Some countries have even gone as far as to decriminalise the possession of all drugs. With this tide of change in the legal status and cultural perception of drugs and, in particular, cannabis use, it does not seem unlikely that the UK government may soon follow suit and reap the social and economic advantages of the legalisation of drugs, such as the availability of medicinal cannabis. The numerous medicinal properties of cannabis have been known for many years in various subcultures who use it as a ‘herb’ rather than a drug or narcotic substance. With this change in cultural perception it is becoming possible for the scientific community to openly delve into this once forbidden plant and verify the claims that many have made of its healing properties over the years.
