Cannabis use as medecine

Cannabis shows a lot of medical value to our modern society. Compared to pharma drugs like painkillers or sleeping pills, Marijuana does not come with the negative side effects that can occur when using painkillers or other strong medication. Marijuana can be used to treat a variety of diseases and that by being far, far (I mean it) far less dangerous than drugs prescribed on a regular basis.

From The Lancet, “There are no confirmed published cases worldwide of human deaths from cannabis poisoning, and the dose of THC required to produce 50% mortality in rodents is extremely high compared with other commonly used drugs”.

This statement of course is not good for the pharmaceutic industry as their medicine that they developed for years and put millions of Euros in would be of no use anymore. Even worse, they would be considered as dangerous and harmful. So it is absolutely understandable that this industry wants to keep Cannabis prohibited but what is the cost? Yes this billion Euro industry could lose a lot of money but is that really worth it? Do people have to be medicated with chemical products that show side effects to save an industry? No. If Marijuana would be made legally available a lot of people could gain a lot of life quality by using Marijuana (with almost none side effects) compared to all the side effects they’d have being treated with drugs.

In researches it has been shown that Cannabis can help in a lot of different medical areas:

  1. pain relief
  2. glaucoma
  3. spasticity in multiple sclerosis
  4. alzheimer’s disease
  5. breast cancer
  6. HIV/AIDS
  7. brain cancer
  8. and much more

Those are just a few of the areas where Marijuana can be used as a SAFE treatment.

Thank you for reading and don’t stop here if you want to know more about this topic surf the web there have been a lot of studies on this topic which I could never cover all on this site.
