Marijuana As a Medicine[The truth behind Medical Marijuana]

Medical Marijuana

I think whenever we hear marijuana the first thing we think about is the fact that its a very popular weed. But what if I told you that  same weed could be used as a medicine to cure a lot of things. It is even referred to sometimes as Medical Marijuana. Before we go in depth into this let’s first explain what marijuana is really about.

What is Marijuana? 

Marijuana is also called by many names such as weed, cannabis, pot. It’s a greenish mixture of the dried flowers of Cannabis sativa. Marijuana comes from the Indian hemp plant, and the part that contains the “drug” is found primarily in the flowers (commonly called the “buds”) and much less in the seeds, leaves, and stems of the plant. Most people smoke marijuana  in hand-rolled cigarettes called joints. It contains mind-altering (e.g., psychoactive) compounds like tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, as well as other active compounds like cannabidiol, or CBD, that are not mind-altering.

Marijuana is one of the most abused drugs in the world. Although as days pass scientist are discovering more and more about the medicinal property of marijuana, that doesn’t change the fact that most people use it in “other ways”. Your body doesn’t know a legal drug from an illegal drug now does it. Most people used cannabis for pleasure and recreation. As earlier said, it contains mind altering chemicals that affect both the brain and the body. Marijuana is a very addictive plant and can be sometimes harmful to the body.

Marijuana also known as Cannabis is used to make various strains, some of which can literally “take you to the sky” and we have just the strain for that. we have listed some of our best strains just for you:

Some Other Uses of Marijuana Weed

Marijuana, when sold, is a mixture of dried out leaves, stems, flowers and seeds of the hemp plant. It is usually green, brown or gray in color.

Hashish is tan, brown or black resin that is dried and pressed into bars, sticks or balls. When smoked, both marijuana and hashish give off a distinctive, sweet odor.

There are over 400 chemicals in marijuana and hashish. The chemical that causes intoxication or the “high” in users is called THC (short for tetrahydrocannabinol). THC creates the mind-altering effects that classifies marijuana as a “drug.” And with all this chemicals it’s made of I’m sure you’ve already guessed it but yes, marijuana has so many other uses. Some of the uses are:

1)Brew Tea: Marijuana can be used to brew tea and, particularly when it is sold or consumed for medicinal purposes, is frequently mixed into foods (edibles) such as brownies, cookies, or candies.

2) In Vaporizers: Vaporizers are also increasingly used to consume marijuana. Stronger forms of marijuana include sinsemilla (from specially tended female plants) and concentrated resins containing high doses of marijuana’s active ingredients, including honeylike hash oil, waxy budder, and hard amberlike shatter.

Marijuana as a medicine(Medical Marijuan)


Medical marijuana

Although this topic brings up a few stir up in the medical and political world, the big question remains, is it safe and effective to use marijuana(also known as cannabis) as a medicine?

The potential medicinal properties of marijuana and its components have been the subject of research and heated debate for decades. THC itself has proven medical benefits in particular formulations. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved THC-based medications, dronabinol (Marinol®) and nabilone (Cesamet®), prescribed in pill form for the treatment of nausea in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy and to stimulate appetite in patients with wasting syndrome due to AIDS.

Marijuana is currently legal, on the state level, in 29 states, and in Washington, DC. It is still illegal from the federal government’s perspective.

Studies report that medical cannabis has possible benefit for several conditions. State laws vary in which conditions qualify people for treatment with medical marijuana. If you’re considering marijuana for medical use, check your state’s regulations. Now, depending on the state you are in, you may be accepted for the treatment with medical cannabis, and if you have the following conditions:

  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Epilepsy and seizures
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple sclerosis and muscle spasms
  • Severe and chronic pain
  • Severe nausea

More Information On Medical Cannabis

Researchers generally consider medications, like these, which use purified chemicals derived from or based on those in the marijuana plant, to be more promising therapeutically than use of the whole marijuana plant or its crude extracts. Development of drugs from botanicals such as the marijuana plant poses numerous challenges. 

Least controversial is the extract from the hemp plant known as CBD (which stands for cannabidiol) because this component of marijuana has little, if any, intoxicating properties. Marijuana itself has more than 100 active components. THC (which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical that causes the “high” that goes along with marijuana consumption. CBD-dominant strains have little or no THC, so patients report very little if any alteration in consciousness.

An additional concern with “medical marijuana” is that little is known about the long-term impact of its use by people with health- and/or age-related vulnerabilities—such as older adults or people with cancer, AIDS, cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, or other neurodegenerative diseases. Further research will be needed to determine whether people whose health has been compromised by disease or its treatment (e.g., chemotherapy) are at greater risk for adverse health outcomes from marijuana use.

Is Cannabis Safe For Medical Use?

To properly answer this question, further studies need to be done. But possible side effects of the in take of marijuana may include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Impaired concentration and memory
  • Slower reaction times
  • Negative drug-to-drug interactions
  • Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Increased appetite

Among some of the drugs produced with the use of marijuana, 2 can be prescribed for treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. They are Dronabinol and nabilone.

Cannabidiol  which is also a cannabis related drug can be prescribed for treatment of severe forms of childhood epilepsy.

I consider this strain perfect for my psychological problems. almost every other weed with this high sativa content seems to cause extreme paranoia but nothing at all like. i felt completely free and loving and more compasionate about myself than i ever have. i have always had an extremely low self esteem and even though i knew that during the experience my depression was lifted enough for me to easily cope with it. I have complex ptds from 25 years of emotional abuse from my mother and neglect from my father. and i felt more relaxed and compassionate about myself any every other person and i knew i had that in there. recomended for anyone that has extreme emotions disturbances about things that happend during your life. not recomended for medical conditions such pchizophrenia obsessive compulsive disorder bi-polasr disorder or anything along thouse lines. not depression though, it eased my depression which had readched a level were i was on suicide watch for 3 years. this strain made my happier and have a more controlled perspective on life while enjoying myself than any other strain ever. deffinately by far my favorite

Friends, stoners, red-eyed countrymen, lend me your ears; for I bring unto thee a tale of the Blue Dream... T’was a calm April night, 2014 it was, and I had eagerly purchased an eighth of some pungent Blue Dream. It’s abundance of sugary trichomes, paired with the thick density of the bud was enough to bring a tear to your eye. I enthusiastically ground up the cheeba, packed a generous bowl and went to town. Eight minutes and a bowl later, I was beginning to assume that my herb wasn’t all that strong…but then it hit me like a 150-ton locomotive of euphoria. “Whoooa” was the only thing that I could say, as I looked at everything around the living room. Everything looked as if it were lagging behind by a few frames, and this cerebral adventure lasted for the first few minutes…but just when I thought that Blue Dream had shown me everything there was to experience about her, her sativa effects began to kick in. All of a sudden, I felt as if I was briskly cruising on a warm cloud, which was followed by an amazing burst of energy. Folks let me tell you, if you’d ever like to find out how an eagle feels when it spreads its majestic wings and takes to the air at 80 mph., this strain is a kickass tool to take you there. Finally, when all of your euphoric energy has been expended, Blue Dream ends her experience with a mellow cruise induced by her indica side. Call in at Jimmy John’s and order 12 sandwiches, fire up Netflix, and take it easy on the couch until you slowly begin to melt into the furniture, because you're going to start to drift off into your happy place; and as soon as you reach that critical point of relaxation, you’re going to sleep like a sloth on twelve doses of Ambien. Folks, I guess the moral of the story here is that Blue Dream is an outstanding and pleasurable strain that is fun for cannabis enthusiasts anywhere on the experience spectrum; from the novice user who is looking to have an easy-going yet memorable experience, to the seasoned smoker who owns a laser pointer and a cat, and anybody in between; but my review alone can’t depict the exquisite effects that Blue Dream has to offer. Roll up a liberal amount of Blue Dream, spark it up, and let her take you on a spectacular trip; you’ll be thankful you did when your mind is blissfully floating through the heavens.

GSC is my favorite strain of all 2016, above Gorilla Glue #4, above Blue Dream, above Skywalker OG, you name it! So Wedding Cake, also called Pink Cookies, is a familiar taste that I know & love with GSC. The mix with Cherry Pie made the strain a new high. The dessert name does much justice in classifying a general themed taste, sweet! In addition the smell is very strong & pleasant. In terms of the high itself, for me, it's was very peaceful as well as productive. Definitely felt more on the sativa side with the batch I got, I also feel more open minded and refreshed after smoking this strain.

Last night I got High for the 1st time since about 1986..... Was into the scene during college years, 1978-82. Multiple Dead Shows, etc. Then got married and started a new life which did not include weed. Years go by, kids turn into People, my body aches from past Sports and work, touched by Depression. Watched the Marijuana revolution from the sidelines and finally decided to see if it could help me. So, while visiting my People in DC this weekend, asked them to hook me up, and received Wedding Cake. I figured out the Vape Pen part on my own, loaded the cartridge at 8:45 pm last night (just before True Detective) and took one decent hit. The first hour was truly Bizarre. I had a hard time coordinating my hands, trying to pick up a glass of water was comical. Then my Mind started DEEP analysis, and I mean deep. Had some Paranoid thoughts, but was able to quickly turn them off. By 11 pm, 2 hours and 15 minutes after the hit, things calmed down. This morning I woke up incredibly well rested. Usually my hip and knee pain wake me up several times. Not last night. My Current Thoughts- I am looking for Two Things: 1. Aiming for Pain Management and help with my Depression. 2. Replacement for Alcohol. Due to how stoned I was last night I doubt Wedding Cake would be a solution for Day Time/Work Time. So I will need to do some research. As for a replacement for Alcohol...... Yikes I was wasted! I look forward to learning more about the Modern Era of Marijuana! Thanks!

I purchased this strain for my up coming wedding With my fiancé, I figured it was only appropriate given the name lol, my fiancé and I gave it a test run. Time was moving slower then usual More then other strains have done previously. The best thing of this strain would be the SEX ???? I've never preformed the way that I did before with any other strain. If you get this and you get to have sex... your welcome... I feel like this will show you what sex is suppose to be like.

I took 3 large bong hits about 20 minutes ago.... A+++!! It's been a very long time since I've been this high (with a dash of stoned) and it's a fantastic high! I picked this up today while I was looking for a new sativa to try. During the day I like to smoke something that will both keep me alert and mentally clear. So far, now 40 min after bong hits (and this is all I've written), and I'm definitely alert and thoroughly enjoying the hell out of the strain. I wouldn't smoke it during the day though, not because it makes me tired (I'm completely wired from it) but because my brain simply doesn't function well enough to work (or do much of anything for that matter). I'd recommend starting with 1 or 2 bong hits first and give it about 15 minutes. This is definitely a "creeper" high so be careful. Super fun high balanced with just the right amount of stoned!! I can't say enough about this pot. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be super stoned but not too tired. I'm really glad I bought it. It may be my new all time favorite weed. Enjoy!

it's me and my husband's 13 year anniversary today and we wanted to get something to smoke together. this was a great choice on this special day. we smoked a gram joint while staring out at the waterfront watching boats and seagulls and jellyfish and other weird creatures that we're still not sure we really saw. I blanked out for about a minute contemplating whether that jellyfish was really an octopus. because that'd be cool. so yeah. recommend. now we're eating tacos.

The description of this strain is extremely accurate. I absolutely rely on this almost every day. I've been using it for medical purposes. Chronic pain, which coincides with depression and anxiety. This flower is better than most anti depressants I've been on. Sour Diesel lets me have a clear mind and still be creative and energized. It tastes terrible. But I don't care because it helps my pain. It brightens my mood, keeps me optimistic and that is going to help with any pain issue. Pain and depression go hand in hand. And this has helped me break the daily cycle of one inducing the other. If you are looking for a strain that can help with medical conditions and keep you sharp and smiling look no further.

Another of my personal favorites. Extremely cerebral whenever I consumed it, but, as many others have pointed out, there really is no "couch-lock." It makes your frontal lobe act in ways you could never have imagined. It's almost like Sour Diesel is a key, a key that opens up whole realms of your mind that you were once ignorant of. A++ Will smoke again.
