Medical marijuana has been legal in Italy since 2007, but due to high costs only a very small percentage of the population have used it on a regular basis.
This looks set to change in the coming months, as the Italian army are growing medical marijuana at a secret location just outside of Florence in a bid to cut costs and make it cheaper. Once a batch is fully developed, then it will distributed in pharmacies throughout the country.
The move is expected to raise a few eyebrows, especially among Italian anti-drug campaigners. However, the Defense Minister Roberta Pinotto said “the army already produces some medicines, and we can guarantee security conditions.”
Medical marijuana is not the only hot topic in Italy at the moment, as a new supplement called phytoceramides has been causing a lot of controversy recently.
If you’ve never heard of the phytoceramide supplement then it is basically a tablet that promises to restore skin from within, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth aging skin, and even increase the hydration of dry skin. Quite bold claims for sure, but the question on the lips of the Italian population is “does it work?”
In technical terms, the phytoceramide supplement works by replenishing the ceramides that are naturally lost by the body as you get older. This is basically a form of “lipid” and is incredibly important if you want to have young looking skin that gives you confidence and makes you feel younger.
Quite possibly one of the biggest recommendations that phytoceramides has received is from famed and respected TV host Dr Oz. He features the supplement on his show on a regular basis, and advises his faithful viewers to “cheat their way to a facelift” by only taking one little pill a day.
You will also be pleased to hear that phytoceramides are completely 100% safe and natural. As long as the manufacturer uses scientifically tested natural ingredients and is approved by the FDA then you can feel confident about moving forward and making a purchase.
Interestingly, many people who take the supplement start noticing results in as little as 7 days. Just imagine looking in the mirror this time next week and seeing your fine lines and wrinkles almost gone! This could soon be your reality.
Who knows…maybe the Italian army will start producing phytoceramides once it starts to become really popular in order to drive the costs down? Anything is possible.
