Marijuana And a Healthy You: How Does That Work?

“Take Control of Your Health Naturally”

What is Marijuana?

Marijuana is a natural herb that has been around for many years. It contains an active ingredient called cannabinoids. Each cannabinoid has a different effect on the body. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabinol) are the two main cannabinoids used in medicine. THC being more of a psychotrophic drug and CBC more a fibrocystic drug.  Sourajit Saha

What is it used for? 
Marijuana has been abused for many years just like any other drug hence the major stigma that comes with the just the word itself. So how dare I say marijuana and a healthy you all in the same sentence! However, it is used to treat a number of different medical conditions such as:

  1. Alzheimer’s Disease
  2. Appetite Loss
  3. Cancer
  4. Crohn’s Disease
  5. Eating Disorders (anorexia)
  6. Glaucoma
  7. Mental Health conditions (Schizophrenia, PTSD, ADHD)
  8. Multiple Sclerosis
  9. Muscles spasms
  10. Nausea
  11. Pain
  12. Wasting Syndrome (cachexia)
  13. It has also proved to help control seizures in children.

If marijuana was stopping your child from have 20 seizures a day that no other medicine would do, would you deny then the treatment? My question is, “Then why are we so up in arms over marijuana?”

How Does It Work? 
Cannabinoids are similar to the natural chemicals that the body makes which are involved in the appetite, memory, movement, and pain processes of the body. It can be ingested many other ways than just tokin’ it up! There are actually medicinal methods.

My Opinion 
It seems to me that it is much healthier to use a medicine that is a natural chemical very similar to what our body is already making to treat what ails us than to subject our bodies to man-made synthetic medicine that only causes more side effects that have to be treated with more man-made synthetic medicine. I’m just sayin’…
