Cannabis VS Pharmaceutical Drugs
In New Zealand one can get a prescription for Sativex which is CBD and THC actually from the cannabis plant. This is probably one of the best pharmaceutical options but has a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC, not something one would find in a natural cannabis oil extract or hemp CBD. It is all the cannabinoids working together which makes cannabis so good, and the reason why it has been grown and consumed for thousands of years.
