Non Medical Use

Don’t get me wrong; when cannabis is used for non medical purposes, or used too much, it can definitely cause more harm than good. Your memory can suffer due to cannabis abuse, as can your mental state. You should only ever use cannabis if your health warrants it.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye condition that can eventually render sufferers blind. However, it’s been proven that people who used marijuana in this instance improved their eye health, and in some cases even fought off blindness for good.

Epilepsy

Epileptic seizures are nothing nice. Thanks to tests on rats with epilepsy, it was discovered that the drug can stop seizures for up to 10 hours.

Cancer

It is thought that a chemical in marijuana can actually stop cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. Some studies even suggest that this plant could kill off cancer cells completely. Cancer patients may want to purchase some cannabis seeds themselves so that they have an unlimited personal supply.

Anxiety

Some don’t see anxiety as a serious illness, but to those who have it, it can be crippling. In the right dosage marijuana can actually decrease anxiety and act as a sort of sedative. Too much and it can have the opposite effect.

ADHD

People with ADHD can struggle to get anything done and may even start to feel bad about themselves. Cannabis can be a good alternative to any other ADHD drug and there aren’t usually any side effects either.

Crohn’s

Cannabis can stop stomach pain, diarrhea, and nausea. This makes it perfect for people who may have IBS or Crohn’s disease.

Stomach Cramp

For women who suffer with severe stomach cramp during ‘that’ time of the month, it can be torture. In some cases, all you want to do is curl up in bed with a hot water bottle and refuse to move for days. Cannabis can actually relieve the pain and help you get on with your day to day life.

Arthritis

Arthritis can be the cause of a lot of inflammation and pain. Cannabis can relieve this.

Parkinson’s

Cannabis can stop tremors and even improve motor skills in people who have Parkinson’s disease.  It can make life bearable again.

You should never use a drug like cannabis unless you have a health condition like one listed above. If you use too much cannabis or use it when you are totally well, you can experience adverse effects. Be sensible, and it can be good for your health!
