What Are The Best Uses Of Marijuana
From year to year, more and more countries of the world are legalizing marijuana due to the huge number of medicinal properties that it has on the human body. Here at GrowLegally we want to give you a detailed explanation about marijuana.
Currently it is allowed for recreational, medical or both purposes in Bangladesh, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, North Korea, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Uruguay and Israel and in 11 American states, especially in Colorado, Alaska, Oregon and Washington.
There are other countries where it is illegal but has been decriminalized, meaning that breeding and selling can be punished by imprisonment while possession of small quantities for personal use is an offense punishable with a fine.
But in many countries, more and more has been discussed over the last few years about the benefits of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes.
Legalization means that medicinal marijuana has its positive effects, and there are other forms of marijuana that are only harmful. But how much is marijuana really good for health, and how damaging? To date, relatively few studies have been conducted of the benefits and consequences of marijuana consumption so that all its potentials and adverse side effects are not sufficiently explored. Legalization should change that. What do those studies show?
There is no possibility of overdose
First of all, it should be emphasized that marijuana has been proven to be much less harmful than legal alcohol. There is virtually no possibility of overtaking it. The British Journal of Psychiatry published in 2001 that no deaths were ever recorded that would be a direct consequence of the acute use of marijuana. It has also been found that its effect on drivers is less dangerous, mainly because they are more aware of their condition and are more cautious.
Medicinal properties known for centuries
Some medicinal properties of marijuana were discovered even 2,700 years before the new era in China, which is still considered one of the 50 most important herbs in the world today. The ancient Greeks and Egyptians used it as a remedy. It spread to Europe, but in 1484 the Pope banned it. Marijuana is usually smoked but can also be eaten with food or drink in the form of tea. It can cause euphoria, hallucinations and confusion.
It relieves the pain
Numerous studies have shown that marijuana relieves pain caused by various diseases. For example, the 2011 survey found that it relieves pain and inflammatory processes in rheumatoid arthritis.
According to the Canadian Medical Association Journal, it also alleviates multiple sclerosis symptoms, including painful muscle cramping. Moreover, some patients are only assisted by marijuana.
New Israeli studies have shown that it significantly reduces pain and tremor caused by Parkinson’s and improves the fine motor function of the patient.
It treats glaucoma
According to the American National Eye Institute, 1970’s research has shown that the key ingredient in marijuana, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), reduces eye pressure by about 25 percent. So marijuana can slow down the disease and prevent blindness, but studies have found that the effect of cannabis is not stronger than conventional medicines which are available in pharmacies.
