Funny how many people have this opinion about medicinal herbs
Most are perfectly fine with "proper medicine" ie a synthetic version of one compound directly copied from these plants, ignoring the fact that its the synergy of many ingredients which offers the benefit
These "medicines" only have to prove more effective than placebo in 2 tests to get on the market, it is common that there are many tests showing them to equal to and sometimes be less effective than a sugar pill. This has no effect on a license being granted
Why does this happen you may ask?
Mother nature owns the good patents and there is no profit for big pharma
Feel free to have an opinion but let it be an informed one, these plants can seriously help people
