Useful Medical Benefits of Marijuana/Cannabis
Effective Health Benefits of Marijuana/Weed
Marijuana, as once mentioned, is a very gifted substance. The adverse effects are often thrown at your face by your parents, teachers and even people like me, your peers. You will be told that marijuana will screw up your life. You’re told how it messes up your brain and the chromosomes in your sperm or egg cell. Indeed, marijuana has terrible effects but, marijuana can also be very useful. Maybe, if you don’t smoke it and look at how it can help you, you might realize that maybe it deserves to be kept around.
Now, as you probably know, several states in this world have legalized marijuana, and this is mostly because of its benefits. It’s more than just a drug used to get people high. It’s much more than that. Also, people need to stop referring to it as a weed. A weed is an unwanted plant and marijuana is a very much desirable trade commodity. So, why do you want to give such a demeaning term to a very much gifted pot? Which forces me to bring up the question, is marijuana useful? Yes, yes, it is. Here are all the uses of marijuana;
Treatment of Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve by increasing pressure on the eyeball. The disease can cause you to lose your vision. Can you imagine that this substance that you are trying to throw away can be used to treat this disease?
The work of marijuana is to decrease the pressure applied on the eyeball. If you use marijuana, it reduces chances of becoming blind by slowing down the effects of the glaucoma disease. But even still, smoking this stuff is not advised. Find another way pal.
Control of Epileptic Seizures
Epilepsy is one messed up disease shown by recurring episodes of sensory disturbances, loss of consciousness and seizures. Now some of these seizures can be deadly.
In comes marijuana!!
Marijuana can remove the seizures for ten straight hours. The THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is produced control the effect of the seizures by binding to the brain cells responsible for controlling how excited you can be and how relaxed you can get. Epilepsy is one deathly disease but, this marijuana can control it.
Stops Cancer Cells from Spreading
Nobody has ever found the cure for cancer. Many scientists have tried and come up short. However, this marijuana can stop the cell from spreading.
In your body, there is a gene called Id-1. What cancer cells do, make a copy of the gene. As cancer cells continue to multiply, more copies are made, and they end up spreading throughout your body. When marijuana is brought in, it turns off the gene Id-1, and it could even kill the cancer cells.
It Eases Pain
A very long time ago, marijuana was used in hospitals to reduce the painful effects of something during its treatment, and you will be fresh and clean.
After treatment, marijuana will begin to work its magic, and within two or three days, the pain will be gone. So, instead of using pain meds for two weeks, it’s better to use marijuana for just one, and in two days, you feel fresh.
All this happens because the THC in the substance binds to the receptors in the nerves to relieve pain.
People, if you hate Marijuana, that’s fine. However, you should consider all the right things it can do for you on the side. You might be in pain or even suffering from cancer. Marijuana has got you covered. The reason it’s still banned in some states is that people use it for the wrong purposes and at the end of it all, we lose rather than gain. People, Marijuana is a blessing to us all if we use it in the right way. Truly, it is a miracle drug. So, instead of demeaning it as we do, we should allow it to be used in hospitals instead of banning it.
