The Health effects and Benefits of medical marijuana

Medical marijuana is a hot issue that’s been debated endlessly over the years, we are no here to do any of that but we are here to discuss the health effects and potential benefits of using medical marijuana. Medical marijuana has been used to alleviate pain, reduce stress and a whole list of potential benefits have been noted from medical marijuana usage, this is why we believe that medical marijuana is a good thing that should be used more often. You should visit OntarioDrugRehab if you have a serious problem though.

The first benefit of using marijuana is the benefit of chronic pain alleviation, studies have conclusively shown that THC (the active ingredient in Marijuana) alleviates chronic pain quite well, the studies were done on people with chronic joint pain. They reported that in almost all cases the pain was helped by the usage of medical marijuana.

The second health benefit is the alleviation of chronic seizures, chronic seizures can be a nightmare to deal with and it seriously screws with your day to day life. A flavonoid present in weed known as CBD (Cannabidiol) has been demonstrated in medical use studies to alleviate chronic seizures with great effectiveness. However, the true effectiveness is still unknown as there have not been any large medically backed studies on this (there have been smaller scale studies) to demonstrate this effect.

The third benefit is that compounds found in Marijuana can help alleviate the symptoms of cancer, Cannabidiol (CBD) and THC have been shown in lab cultures to slow down the progress of cancer cell reproduction. These studies haven’t been done in human bodies though, so the process may not be as drastic in humans or may not even happen at all. But it’s still a nice potential benefit from the usage of medical marijuana that people should take a look into, especially those with chronic pain and cancer.
