Medical Cannabis Prescribed In Israeli Nursing Home

Some medical patients suffer from such severe pain that no medicine can help. However, there is a natural remedy which can bring some relief. A geriatric home in Israel prescribes medical cannabis to some of their patients suffering from certain ailments. Here's more from our Israeli bureau.

At Hadarim Geriatric Home, medical cannabis is weighed and given to some of the patients.

Among them... Moshe Rott. He receives medical cannabis as a powder mixed with tobacco.

[Moshe Rott, Medical Cannabis Recipient]:
"What does it do? It makes me tranquil and less uptight. I'm able to take it easy, and I feel restful. Before that my hands were in pain, like someone suffering from Parkinson's disease. It stopped after three months. My hands don't shake anymore, and it's totally different."

A television program on medical cannabis caught the attention of the geriatric home's head nurse.
