Just putting this out there, but weed seeds look absolutely nothing like any species of grass seed that I've ever seen and are actually a few magnitudes larger than your average St. Augustine hull. BUT HEY.
A small-scale clinical study from Germany has shown promise that marijuana's CBD (cannabidiol) compounds may be effective against the effects of schizophrenia. According to a 39-patient study from the University of Cologne (all of whom had suffered a previous psychotic episode), the variant group received CBD suppliments rather than the the normally prescribed anti-psychotic, amisulpride. The results were spectacular:
At the end of the four-week trial, both groups made significant clinical improvements in their schizophrenic symptoms, and there was no difference between those getting CBD or amisulpride.
"The results were amazing," said Daniel Piomelli, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology at the University of California-Irvine and a co-author of the study. "Not only was [CBD] as effective as standard antipsychotics, but it was also essentially free of the typical side effects seen with antipsychotic drugs."
