Marijuana has been used a variety of different ways by countless different cultures around the world, some documenting its use as early as 2737 BC. Finally, though, science today is starting to catch up with what alternative healers and eastern physicians have known, or at the very least strongly suspected, for years – there are actually many medicinal benefits of marijuana.
Cancels Out Chronic Pain & Inflammation
One of the most basic proven benefits of marijuana becoming more widely accepted today is its ability to successfully eliminate pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms. It’s so effective, in fact, that it’s even quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for those with rheumatoid arthritis, spinal deformities, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Mitigates Mental Distress
Marijuana doesn’t just heal the physical though. It is also gaining quite the reputation lately for it’s effect in reducing the symptoms and lessening the intensity of different mental and emotional disorders, like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as help prevent more serious neurological disorders, like Alzheimer’s. Because of the way it affects the brain, marijuana can even help suppress nightmares.
Helps With Cancer & Other Degenerative Conditions
Have a serious form of cancer, or other degenerative condition, like glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, Lupus, or Parkinson’s? Marijuana can help you with these too by alleviating pain or nausea, slowing down/stopping the spread of cancer cells, steadying tremors, aiding better sleep, supporting stronger motor skills, increasing appetite, relaxing your immune system, and so much more. It’s basically a wonder drug!
Subsides Seizure Symptoms
Although marijuana is most often used to treat adults, children who experience frequent seizures, or suffer from any type of epilepsy, have been know to greatly benefit from it as well. Many doctors simply attribute this to the way marijuana is able to essentially calm the brain down and prevent excess activity that may trigger a seizure, though there is still much research to be done to gain an exact understanding of what’s truly happening to cause this.
Marijuana impacts the brain in many different ways, but did you know according to Harvard professor and marijuana advocate Lester Grinspoon “many doctors and researchers believe that marijuana has incredibly powerful neuroprotective properties” as well? There is even evidence to suggest marijuana can reduce bruising in the brain and protect neurological function following a stroke, concussion, or other traumatic brain injury.
At the other end of your body, of course, marijuana can work wonders on your gut as well. Different inflammatory bowel diseases, like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, are simply no match for marijuana’s natural abilities to prevent bacteria absorption by tightening the patients intestinal bond.
