The Many Health Benefits of Medical Marijuana
One of the major benefits associated with medicinal marijuana use is the relief of chronic or neuropathic pain. If you are still on the fence about marijuana legalization, however, there are also many health benefits for you to consider before deciding. More than 20 states around the country have already legalized medical marijuana and more and more are looking in to it. More than 60 U.S. and international health organizations — including the American Public Health Association, Health Canada and the Federation of American Scientists — support granting patients immediate access with physician supervision. Even more, including the American Cancer Society and the American Medical Association support the facilitation of wide-scale, clinical research trials so that physicians may better assess cannabis’ medical potential.
Individual scientists and doctors have been changing their minds lately as well, although this isn’t new. As far back as 1991 a study done at Harvard found that 44 percent of oncologists had previously advised marijuana therapy to their patients, and 50% of those said they would do so if marijuana was legal (CNN’s chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta reversed his opinion on medical marijuana.)
The cannabis plant has been around for centuries. It may have originated in Central Asia, but has expanded globally in both recreational and medicinal use. People all around the world consume cannabis and to feel better and recover from ailments of all kinds. Do the research yourself, find out the benefits and consider the risks, but make no mistake, there are a number of proven and documented benefits to medical marijuana use.
