Medical Marijuana: Why is it “Healthy”?
Marijuana has always gotten a bad rap for being the drug of choice for “stoners” who stay at home all day and just smoke this stuff. However, there is a movement that is happening all throughout the country that casts a whole new light on marijuana and its more “useful” properties. Hence, this is where medical marijuana is now coming in to help people who need its uses the most.
So, if you really want to use marijuana for medicinal purposes, does that mean you can get it for just about anything? Well, you would probably think that, but no; though more and more states have been passing laws allowing people to use marijuana for therapeutic purposes, there is always one factor that is common among all its prescriptions: you have to be in pain before you even get to ask for one.
Many of the common complaints that are associated with people asking for medical marijuana prescriptions are headaches, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, nerve pain, and chronic diseases like cancer or HIV. If you happen to be suffering from poor appetite or nausea because of your treatments for the aforementioned illnesses, then you are also prescribed with medical marijuana, too. So yes, to say that medical marijuana is a “serious” business is a pretty big understatement.
Coincidentally, medical marijuana, for all its uses, still has a hard time shedding its “shady” past much like the one product that is also striving to be accepted seriously as a whole in recent years: ecigarettes. Believe it not, there are parallels between these two products. How so?
Well, because for one, ecigarettes are now being used for health reasons rather than being an “alternative” to smoking nowadays. Ecigs are now being used to wean heavy smokers with their dangerous habits with a product that is not only certainly less toxic than its “real” counterpart, but one that lends itself very well for practical usage in one’s daily life.
Though, like medical marijuana itself, there are certain limitations to using an ecig in public, there is no question that you will not harm anyone with the “vapors” that will emanate from an ecig if you happen it be using in a vicinity where you’re near a child or even a pregnant woman. In a way, these qualities make it very similar to medical marijuana, though they certainly differ in its uses.
So, are you convinced about the effectiveness of either medical marijuana or an ecigarette? Well, we do hope this article has helped you in some way.
