JAKARTA - The Chairperson of the Sativa Foundation Trustee, Professor Musri Musman, stated that medical marijuana through CBD (cannabidiol) oil which is a non-toxic compound extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa) can indeed treat cerebral palsy.

The reason, according to Prof. Musri, is that CB1 nerves originating from the celestial body, namely the brain, can work together with CB2 in peripheral nerves.

This was said by Prof. Musri in response to a mother named Santi Warastuti who went viral for encouraging the legalization of medical marijuana for her child who suffers from cerebral palsy.

"Can CBD treat cerebral palsy? Yes! (CBD) will provide signal input (to the patient's brain) so that it works properly", said Musri during a public hearing (RDPU) with Commission III of the Indonesian House of Representatives at the Senayan Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Thursday, June 30.

This cannabis researcher from Syiah Kuala University explains, how CBD (Cannabidiol) oil works by acting on parts of the human brain. Where the advantage is to develop the brain system of people with cerebral palsy with adjusted levels.

"Can CBD overcome cerebral palsy in a separate form or together because it has a certain concentration? How much concentration is needed? It really depends, first from the person's body", explained Musri Musman.

Prof. Musri ensured that the concentration level given ranging from 300 milligrams to 1,500 milligrams would not make the user to experience addiction. In addition, he said, the dose of the gift has also been adjusted to the daily level of people with cerebral palsy.

"Evidence has been found that giving 300 milligrams to 600 milligrams per day for people with cerebral palsy does not cause drunkenness, does not cause harm, does not show addiction", said Musri.

"Because the maximum that can be used is 1,500 milligrams per day for people with cerebral palsy", he added.
