According to the World Health Organization, up to 80% of the populations of developing countries currently use medicinal plants as remedies. Nature has in fact been making biologically active compounds for billions of years. Examples of medicines from plants that have a major impact globally include: morphine from opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum), aspirin from the white willow tree (Salix alba vulgaris), and the anticoagulant coumadin from spoiled sweet clover (Melilotus species). Tropical plants such as the Madagascar Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) have yielded vinblastine, which has revolutionized the treatment of Hodgkin's lymphoma, and vincristine, which has done same for acute childhood leukemia.
Recently, over 33 USA states, and a growing number of countries have now legalized medical cannabis. The National Institutes of Health, and World Health Organization encourage research on medical cannabis for treating cancer, the side effects of radiotherapy or chemotherapy and treatment of other diseases incuding pain, neurological disorders and so forth.
Besides Cannabis, it is estimated that of the 300,000 plant species that exist in the world, only 15% have been evaluated to determine their pharmacological potential.
With over a billion people using medicinal plants BUT with little or no scientific evidence, top scientists from Harvard and the world’s best Universities have teamed up and are developing win-win collaborations with phytomedicines industry pioneers and leaders as well as over 800 million stakeholders to generate evidence-based phamaceutical grade products with scientifically established efficacy and toxicity assessment for global health, and economic development
