Is Cannabis Healthy for You?

There has been a lot of controversy in regards to whether or not cannabis has health benefits. There are now 29 States that have legalized the use of marijuana, either for medical use or recreational use, in some cases both.

Upon my own personal research I’ve discovered that there are quit a bit of proven health benefits that marijuana contributes to.

The Food and Drud Administration (FDA) still refuses to recognize marijuana as a use for medical reasons. However CBD (Cannabidoil) has been recognized by the FDA to have properties that are beneficial to people with epilepsy, social anxiety, post traumatic  stress disorder just to name a few.

CBD has no psychoactive effects but is beneficial in certain types of ailments as I have previously outlined. I’m also going to outline some other health benefits that marijuana has for those that suffer from other ailments other than what I’ve already outlined.


Cannabis is known to slow or even stop regenerating cancer cells. Also, marijuana helps with nausea associated with chemo therapy.  I remember my aunt when she went threw chemo therapy, let me tell you, it wasn’t a pretty sight when she would come home after her dose of chemo. My cousins and I finally talked her into smoking some weed and it did seem to have a relaxing effect on her and she didn’t have the urge to puke as a result.

Chronic Pain

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicines said that there was  definite evidence that cannabis or cannabinoid, found in the marijuana plant, can be an effective treatment for chronic pain. Commonly, that is by far the primary reason people use medical marijuana.

So if your in chronic pain, I can only suggest smoking a joint or taking a couple hits off your bong or pipe. I’m sure it will make you feel much better. It does for me, who knows it just help with other shit that may be ailing you. Kind of like killing two birds with one toke, lol.

Alcohol and Drug Addiction

It’s been revealed that using marijuana may help people with alcohol or opioid addiction. So with that being said, I’m afraid that I would have to strongly disagree with that first sentence. In my personal opinion I would have to say that marijuana does not help when it comes to alcoholism or other drug use. It’s been said that marijuana is a gate way drug, Bullshit! IF your an alcoholic then there is no amount of marijuana that is going to diswade you from drinking. A person has to want to quit drinking. And there is no way you can substitute one for the other. Of course that’s only my opinion. And if you can then my hat is off to you.

Social Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

CBD (Cannabidoil) has  recently grown in popularity as being the cannabis chemical that aids in the therapy for Social Anxiety and Stress disorder. CBD has several mechanisms of action including CB1- acting in the mind and CB2- acting in the body receptors found in the peripheral organs and skin.

Lung Capasity

So I read that marijuana can be helpful with lung capasity. This has nothing to to do with any of the chemicals in the marijuana plant itself. The fact that when smoking marijuana and you breath in the smoke deeply into your lungs and hold it for a period of time helps to improve lung capacity. I’ll call it sreching exercise for your lungs. Unless your a tabacco smoker, then you can toss lung capacity out the window. There are no documented case’s, that I have ever heard of, to prove that marijuana causes lung cancer. So you none tabacco smokers, I say exercise that lung capasity and do some stretching exercises.

Glaucoma is caused by pressure on the optic nerve which impaired vision and possible blindness if not treated. Back when marijuana was being considered for medical use Glaucoma was one of the primary reasons for that. The use of marijuana is known to relive the pressure on the optic nerve.

So, as you can see, cannabis has many benefits to one’s health. Anywhere from psyco to muscular disorders. As scientists continue to study the chemicals in cannabis as to the health benefits are discovering that there are many health benefits associated with the marijuana plant.

THC’s chemical structure is similar to the endocannabinoid anandamide which transmits chemical messages between nerve cells. The THC binds with cannabinoid receptors CB1 like a key in a lock, forcing the

As you can see, marijuana has many health benefits and this article only scratches the surface. Marijuana has been used for 1000’s of years, 3000 to be more precise, for medical use. Also, marijuana was legal until 1937 when the government stepped in and made marijuana illegals. This I don’t understand when the use of alcohol is much more deadly.
