The germ of truth to the report comes from this story from last July:
There’s yet another use for marijuana: It may help to heal broken bones, according to a new study.Iranian media took this story to say that the US is now paying Israel to build pot farms in the West Bank in order to create these lucrative bone-healing drugs and thereby stealing land from Palestinians.
Researchers found that cannabidiol – an element of marijuana that does not get people high – improved the healing process in rats with broken leg bones after eight weeks, according to a study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research by Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University.
Yankel Gabet of Tel Aviv’s Bone Research Laboratory who led the study, said it found that the element “makes bones stronger during healing,” which could prevent future fractures. This process occurs as cannabidiol, or CBD, enhances the maturation of collagen, the protein in connective tissue that “holds the body together.”
“After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future,” Gabet said in a news release.
You have to admit, these guys have imaginations.
