‘Grandma’s Magic Remedy:’ Mexico’s Medical Marijuana Secret

A debate on whether to legalize marijuana for recreational or medicinal uses in Mexico is in its infant stages, but Mexicans have used cannabis for therapeutic purposes for centuries.

MEXICO: When her legs ache, this Mexican grandmother rubs them with marijuana-infused alcohol. She is well aware the homemade remedy defies the country’s cannabis ban, but her family has used the concoction to treat ailments since she was a child, handing it down the generations.

“I really have a lot of faith in it,” said the slender 53-year-old, a housewife and amateur dancer who spoke to AFP about her cannabis use on condition of strict anonymity.

“When I’m very tired, I spread it on my legs, feet and body. It’s really good. I can go without salt but not without marijuana with alcohol. My grandmother used it,” she said, holding a plastic bottle filled with the leaves and liquid.

In turn, she used the family remedy to care for her three children, and three grandchildren. For the kids, a piece of cotton soaked in the liquid is placed in the bellybutton to fight fevers. When they’re congested, the alcohol is rubbed on the chest and back.

    We were just speaking with corporate directors there in Mexico City last week about pure 99% CBD isolate from HALO Labs in the USA – The crystal has better long-term functionality because it doesn’t have THC. They re-add the crystals back with other full spectrum oil there and make a custom super-high CBD formula that cannot be matched any other way. This stops the cartel-ism and drug trade associated with the plant and allows access to high-strength pure CBD isolate across the board.
