Can Cannabis Cure Cancer?

Americans suffer from a lot of problems.

One of them is being unable to sleep.

But for every problem, there seems to be a pill that provides a “magical solution.”

Take insomnia.

Through the first nine months of the year, Merck & Co. (NYSE: MRK) reported sales of its sleep aid, Belsomra, increased 27% to $191 million.

But that’s just one in a growing list of sleeping aids. There’s also Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata and others.

There’s a rich vein to tap, as between 50 million and 70 million Americans suffer from some kind of sleep disorder. And providing a good night’s rest rakes in tens of billions of dollars for pharmaceutical companies.

But is there an alternative to these drugs on the horizon?

In today’s edition of CannaBiz Now! I talk with president of the Association of Cannabis Specialists, Dr. Jordan Tishler.

Most investors recognize the opportunity medical marijuana offers in pain management. But the reality is there’s a whole list of ailments (including insomnia) where cannabis is proving to be effective.

Dr. Tishler shares his professional insights on a wide range of both possibilities and improbabilities.

Can cannabis shrink tumors? Is it effective for treating diabetes? How about anxiety?

These are some of the questions Dr. Tishler tackles.

Good investing,
