When medical cannabis was legalized in my state, I was absolutely unsure of what to think, then i had only absolutely heard of cannabis as a recreational drug that more and more young people were getting into.
I truthfully thought this might be a downside thing for my community, so I expressed my concerns with a friend of mine, and my friend told myself and others that there were a lot more benefits to medical cannabis than I realized; After our conversation, I began looking into some of the benefits that I might have been unaware of.
To my surprise, I l gained that cannabis can reduce anxiety. It can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. There are also many medical benefits of cannabis in treating life threatening diseases. I found a lot of research regarding the benefits of cannabis for cancer patients, and for a single thing, it helps with the nausea that chemotherapy can cause. It also is known to help with appetite and weight gain for cancer patients, however research also suggests that medical cannabis can be a beneficial treatment for individuals with MS. The more I read, the more I realized I didn’t assume what I was talking about before. I could see that there were clearly an abundance of benefits to legalizing the use of medical marijuana. In fact, I am surprised it took so long!
