Top Uses and Benefits of Medical Marijuana

In this guide, we explain the many uses and benefits of taking medical marijuana.

In 1996, California was the first American state to legalize medical cannabis. Over 20 years have passed and the number of states where you can use marijuana for health purposes has gone up to 24.

For some people, it still has a bad reputation. But there's no denying that medical marijuana can greatly improve the quality of life of individuals who suffer from certain health issues.

So what makes medical marijuana so useful? That's what we'll be talking about in this article.

Uses and Benefits of Medical Marijuana

It's not a coincidence that in 2018, over 2 million people were state-legal medical marijuana patients in the US. Or that 44% of the participants in a study stated that they stopped taking prescription drugs and replaced them with medical cannabis.

So why is medical marijuana becoming such a popular choice to treat certain health issues? Well, the health benefits are undeniable.

It Alleviates Arthritis

Medical cannabis is very efficient to reduce inflammation and pain. Those are two of the biggest effects of arthritis, which explains why marijuana is a good reliever for people who suffer from the disease.

It Reduces Anxiety

Nowadays a lot of people struggle with mental health issues, particularly with anxiety.

Marijuana is a great short-term solution for this issue. Although it doesn't cure the condition of its root cause, it helps to calm you down in the moment of panic.

It's important, however, not to smoke too much. Otherwise, the plant has the opposite effect, making you paranoid.

It Helps With Epilepsy

This is a popular one. You may have even seen some reports of this type of use of medical marijuana on your social media.

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a great treatment for those who suffer from regular seizures. In fact, in 2016, 400 families had moved to Colorado, so they could help their epileptic children through the use of medical marijuana. 

It Helps Prevent Alzheimer's

Marijuana has a substance called THC in it. This active ingredient has been proved to delay the advancement of Alzheimer's.

It does so by slowing down the production of amyloid plaques, which kill brain cells and cause Alzheimer's disease.

It Helps Stabilize Individuals With Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is another mental health issue that can be minimized through the use of medical cannabis. The same way it helps with anxiety, marijuana improves the individual's mood swings.

Once again, there needs to be some caution regarding the amount of marijuana that's taken for this purpose.
