Medical marijuana research

Have you ever read research on medical marijuana before? It is actually quite fascinating stuff. Also the National Institute of Health is currently still researching more on the benefits of using pot in patients. It is not just cancer patients that see benefits, more and more health issues are being helped by marijuana.

I like the space cakes

What chemicals in pot helps out medical patients? I did not realize that there are certain ingredients in medical marijuana that helps out specific issues. I always thought medical marijuana was people smoking a joint and feeling better. It is way more scientific than that. There is an ingredient in marijuana that is called cannabinoids. A marijuana plant has over 100 cannabinoids in it and this ingredient helps patients out. There are two main portions to cannabinoids as well. There is THC and CBD. The THC is used more towards cancer patients. What it does is reduce nausea and also helps your appetite. When going through chemotherapy, the THC is what is helping most of these patients. The chemo makes it impossible to keep any food down due to the…

My friend convinced me

I used to be against people who talked about legalizing marijuana. I figured these people just wanted to get high all of the time. They want to smoke joints in public, stink up restaurants and influence our younger generation. I am not a smoker and I have never smoke before.

We talked back and forth and Brain has convinced me that legalization is not a bad thing. First, I was picturing…

Purple haze

Epilepsy is where nerve activity in the brain is disturbed and this causes seizures to occur. Now I always thought that seizures were very dangerous and painful. If you have ever seen someone have one, it does look super painful. Actually the seizures are fairly harmless. It is just more traumatic for the people who sees the person undergo one. There really is not that much pain associated with one. Sometimes seizures occur with a sudden burst of terror, that can be traumatic for the child undergoing one, but not painful. If the seizure goes on a long time, scarring or damage to the brain can occur though. Childhood epilepsy is real and there are quite a few cases where the kids outgrow them. But what if you are worried…

Marijuana facts

I feel like the big thing that people are talking about is legalizing marijuana. A lot of people are up in arms that this plant basically will become the gateway drug to harder substances. I really don’t think so. I feel marijuana is just too useful to ignore. Also if marijuana is treated like alcohol, then the younger generation will react accordingly. Marijuana should be legalized, have regulations and laws associated with it. But, medical marijuana should always be accessible in any state, age and location. There are too many benefits when it comes to medical purposes. I suppose that is the point I don’t understand. We allow alcohol to be legal when all it does is cause problems. People die from it and it hinders your mind. Cigarettes are…
