Taking a closer look at medical cannabis

WRITTEN BY: Jennifer Ellis

Medical marijuana is making its way to a state near you. While it is still illegal in many states, legalization of marijuana is increasing across the country as scientists work to unlock its secrets. Medical marijuana, or cannabis, seems to have magical powers over the human body, with wide reaching effects for numerous diseases. In fact, science has postulated that cannabis could be a cure-all, helping with chronic pain, seizures, cancer, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and more. In some ways, this could become a proven truth when shown how the endocannabinoid system within our bodies can affect every system and body function.

As cannabis integrates into medicine more and more, and as acceptance grows, it will be important to educate ourselves on cannabis itself and its variations that support specific functions. Knowing the difference between CBD and THC or learning about the different strains that are being cultivated for specific diseases just might become as commonplace as deciding whether aspirin or ibuprofen is better for what symptoms.
