What are the Advantages of Medicinal Marijuana?

Medicinal properties of cannabis in particular are some of the strongest driving factors behind such efforts. 

There is no denying the fact that marijuana has been used for medicinal purposes for not just decades but centuries together. This is also one of the reasons why many countries such as The Netherlands and many states in a country like United States have already legalized commercial growing and selling of marijuana. Let us take a look at different advantages and disadvantages of medicinal marijuana. 

Advantages

Cannabis or marijuana is said to have many strong curative powers on many types of cancer, Alzheimer’s and many other diseases. People suffering from glaucoma can also get relief with marijuana and patients who are either on some kind of radiation treatments or chemotherapy can benefit from cannabis in terms gaining appetite and body weight. 

Many people who smoke marijuana also vouch for its usage, saying that it helps in relieving pain. This is the reason why the enthusiasts of cannabis feel that marijuana should be available for people who are in need of it as they can certainly help with different types of ailments. Some of the supporters also say that cannabis should be made a prescription drug legally, so that the doctors can actually prescribe them for patients they feel would benefit from cannabis. 

About the Usage of Tetrahydrocannabinol

People that are against cannabis for medical purposes, say that different components of cannabis have been isolated for medicinal purposes. They say that these components are even now available to the patients for taking without any negative parts of the whole marijuana plant. They also argue that there are many other effective drugs that are available for curing the diseases that marijuana claims to cure. 

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is a kind of psychotropic compound and should be investigated further before making it available to general public for consumption; this is the point that the opponents make as they feel THC can cause harm. 

They also point out that most of the cannabis users are young who are also healthy and by repeated use of marijuana their health could suffer. They also refute the fact that marijuana is a natural product by saying that even mushrooms are natural products, but some of them are even poisonous.

So, it’s up to people to recognize the medical benefits of cannabis, and make use of them in a responsible manner. As they say – too much of anything can be bad, and cannabis are no exceptions, but then when they’ve used in limited quantities, they can indeed do wonders!
