Medical Marijuana Overview
Cannabis (also known as marijuana, medical marijuana, or weed) has been used for centuries in parts of the world to help reduce pain, anxiety, and stress. Certain chemicals that are in the hemp plant, CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), are key therapeutic properties that work to treat several medical conditions. Research has found that CBD has little to no intoxicating properties, and THC is the chemical that creates a light-headed feeling. Whether they are combined or used separately, CBD and THC both have great benefits for patients suffering from certain medical conditions, including cancer, HIV, AIDS, Chronic pain, Epilepsy, PTSD, and many others.
Starting in the late 1930s, the U.S. government created a law that prohibited the usage, sale, and production of marijuana. As time went on propaganda stigmatized its usage, but advocates and medical researches continued their campaign to bring awareness to the benefits of marijuana. Fortunately, all their hard work paid off and times are changing. Today, more American states join together in legalizing marijuana for medical purposes and, in some states, for recreational purposes. As of 2018, 30 American states and the District of Columbia have passed laws that allow people to legally consume, purchase, and produce marijuana. Although D.C. and eight other states permit recreational use of marijuana, 22 other states only allow marijuana for medical purposes.
