Cannabis Could Kill Painkillers Soon

By Jimmy Mengel New York January 18, 2018

Someone dies every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose. Many more have their lives ruined from addiction and abuse.

Pain affects more people than cancer, heart disease, and diabetes combined.

Every year, one-third of the United States population — or 116 million Americans — suffers from chronic pain. Thousands more die from dangerous painkillers. And ineffective pain care costs as much as $635 billion.

But that’s about to change. A new drug has emerged that has the leading voices of the medical community rallying behind it.

Dr. Oz called this drug’s pain treatment “hugely beneficial.” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, personally witnessed its impact and reports, “I have seen it quell epilepsy in a child and pain in a grown adult. I’ve seen it help a woman at the peak of her life to overcome the ravages of multiple sclerosis.”

Imagine living in a world where you never suffer from pain. Where you can enjoy your daily life without being held back by pain… And without taking lethal or addictive painkillers.

This new drug could make all of that a reality…and make investors a fortune.

Painkillers is multi-billion-dollar industry

Think about it. Someone dies every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose. Many more have their lives ruined from addiction and abuse.

The number of lives this drug could save is incredible. And the number of people it could impact is even more so. Everybody in the world experiences some sort of pain. 1.2 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain. Hundreds of millions more from disease-induced pain.

That means the consumer base for this drug that can end pain safely includes literally everybody. That’s why the market for this new drug is already at $3 billion…

Just take a look at this chart:


But these numbers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the growth potential. CNBC estimates that this market could reach as high as $120 billion globally. Steve Berg, a former managing director of Wells Fargo Bank, said, “Domestically, we weren’t able to find any market that is growing as quickly.”

And according to the Huffington Post, the market for this drug “is poised to grow faster than smartphones.”

What is this wonder drug?

Painkillers are addictive

I’m talking about medical marijuana. Not only could it help end pain, but it could also reverse the symptoms of common diseases like:

  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Neuropathy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

These are big markets. And the list goes on and on. Not only could medical marijuana help disrupt the billion dollar pain industry, but it could make early investors a FORTUNE.

Just look at how valuable this drug is compared to diamonds and gold:

In the coming months, one company will be releasing the results of a new patent for clinical trials for rare cannabinoids. Results that could send the company through the roof.

This company created a time-release-type capsule that you would have in any other type of pain medication. And it knows what it’s doing — the CEO of the company started the company that created OxyContin, which is a billon-dollar market now.

It’s a fully-integrated medical marijuana and health care company and if this patent goes through, that will be a massive deal for the company and pain patients all over the world. It will also make early investors very, very rich.
