Micronesia will be launching a medical cannabis program this fall, as part of a multi-lateral partnership with Albania with support from the United States. Both countries will legalize the use of cannabidiol (CBD oil) for severe pain, and untreatable ailments like cancer, epilepsy, and PTSD.

Despite overwhelming support for the program, questions as whether to include THC strains with the medical regime have surfaced. Because of its psychoactive components, only the natural small amounts of THC found in CBD strains are permitted.
