Today, I am going to talk about marijuana as medicine. Sure, some people want to get high or relieve their boredom, but this is a one-stop resource for information on how it can help your body and mind do amazing things.
For instance, did you know that studies have shown marijuana to be effective in treating chronic pain? The pot was the most effective treatment out of all those tested (including opioids!). What’s more, there are many different kinds of weed products available – from edibles to bottled oils – so you can find an option that works for you.
You’ve probably heard about THC and CBD, they’re found both separately and together. While they have different effects on the body and mind, they are beneficial (and safe) for many other conditions. For instance, THC is known to be a powerful appetite stimulant, and CBD helps treat migraines, insomnia, and anxiety.
If you’re struggling with these issues, marijuana might be the answer.
So that’s just skimming the surface of how marijuana is a medicine. Additionally, there are many other health benefits to smoking pot (which we’ll get into below). That being said, I wanted to make sure it was known that, despite all these benefits, weed is ultimately a drug that comes with risks.
For example, there’s always the issue of addiction, even though marijuana is not considered physically addictive like… say, nicotine or alcohol. Some people also report signs of withdrawal when they stop smoking weed if they’ve been using it for a while and regularly.
Another concern is that…
…some marijuana products are contaminated with mold, insects, and other unsavory things. Plus, like any drug or medicine, it’s not good to mix marijuana with alcohol.
So think about all of this before you start medicating using the plant that grows wild in just about every state of America. Or check out some states where weed is legal. Just remember to be patient and wait for it to take effect.
If you suffer from any of the following ailments, then marijuana has been clinically shown to relieve your symptoms:
- Chronic Pain
- Arthritis and other Inflammatory Conditions
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Anxiety Disorder
- Substance Abuse
Could it be the answer you’re looking for?
There are even more benefits to marijuana than just medicine. A study was published by the “Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society. showed that marijuana has a positive effect on neuroplasticity, which is how our brain adapts with experience. This is good news for everyone who loves to smoke! Your brain will be more robust and more flexible as you get older.
If you’re still skeptical about trying marijuana for any reason, I encourage you to at least have an open mind about it. While many people use it recreationally and not as medicine, marijuana remains one of the safest options for those who suffer from chronic pain.
Let’s change the way we think about marijuana – from a dangerous drug to something that can help your body and mind do amazing things.
