Opioid abuse has quickly grown into a major global epidemic.
While opioids can be great for pain relief, the down side is that they are highly addictive. Recent data shows that opioid abuse and addiction is killing tens of thousands of people every year in just the United States.
Overdose deaths caused by prescription opioids have quadrupled since 1999. From 1999 to 2015, more than 183,000 people have died in the U.S. from overdoses related to prescription opioids.
This is an alarming trend that has both patients and health care professionals asking - are we capable of providing a better alternative?
According to a young biotech located Australia the answer is yes - and the solution comes in the form of cannabis.
If this young cannabis biotech is correct, not only will patients benefit, early shareholders will be rewarded with huge gains.
Let's take a look. Continue reading "Australian Cannabis Biotech Up 271%"

In early 2017 Forbes ranked Warren Buffett as the world’s second richest man with a net worth of $72 billion.
Unlike most other billionaires on the list, Buffett didn’t get rich from owning just one company. Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.B) functioned like a giant mutual fund, investing in many companies from different industries all across the economy. That way, if one industry or company struggled, it wouldn’t crush Berkshire’s performance.
At the core, this is a lesson in diversification. Putting all your eggs in one basket can be risky.
That is particularly true in the cannabis sector. It is a super young industry and cannabis stocks can be quite volatile.
I want to share a cannabis stock that Warren Buffett would love. Continue reading "Warren Buffet Would Love This Cannabis Stock"

Animal studies also suggest that cannabis could be a cancer killer.
A study conducted by Complutense University, one of the oldest and largest universities in Europe located in Madrid, showed that an injection of a synthetic THC eliminated malignant brain tumors in 1/3 of the rats studied while extending the life of another 1/3.
