Marijuana And A Healthy You: How Does That Work?

Marijuana is a natural herb that has been around for many years. It contains active ingredients named cannabinoids. Each cannabinoid has a different effect on the body. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabinol) are the two main cannabinoids used in medicine. THC is more of a psychotropic drug and CBC is more of a fibrocystic drug.

What is it used for?

Marijuana has been abused like any other drug for years, which is why it has become a major stigma associated with the word itself. So, how dare I pronounce marijuana and make everyone healthy in the same sentence! However, it is used to treat a number of different diseases in clinics in Lancaster CA, such as:

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • Loss of appetite

  • Crab

  • Crohn's disease

  • Eating disorders (anorexia)

  • Glaucoma

  • Mental illness (schizophrenia, PTSD, ADHD)

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Muscle cramp

  • Nausea

  • Pain

Loss syndrome (cachexia)

It has also been shown to help control seizures in children.

If marijuana prevented your child from having 20 seizures a day that no other drug could cause, would you refuse medication? My question is, "Then why are we so armed with marijuana?"

How does it work?

Cannabinoids are similar to natural chemicals produced by the body that are involved in the processes of appetite, memory, movement and pain in the body. It can be swallowed in many other ways than just ingesting it! There is a medical method.
