Medical marijuana is a blanket term that describes all of the active cannabis plants.
Medical marijuana can be made from the entire cannabis sativa plant.
It can be made from the stem, leaves, sap, or resin. Many states allow marijuana to be used for medical reasons. When this state legalized, we were the 18th state in the nation to recognize the medical impacts of marijuana. Marijuana can be used to treat a lot of different diseases and ailments such as Alzheimer’s, glaucoma, MS, epilepsy, and severe and chronic pain. Medical marijuana is 100% safe to use and has barely any side effects. Medical marijuana users often experience increased heart rate, impaired concentration, and increased appetite. Most users do not have any problem smoking marijuana and the relief from the plant lasts for several hours. A few years ago the doctor told me to apply for a medical marijuana card. The doctor was having trouble finding a way to control the pain from my Crohn’s disease. The doctor suggested medical marijuana to help with the pain as well as increase my appetite during the day. Medical marijuana was prescribed to me by an official doctor and healthcare provider, so I know that it is safe. I get to visit the marijuana dispensary. I present them with my identification card and then I can make as many purchases as I need. Having access to marijuana has absolutely changed my life for the better. I can see why more than ⅔ of the country have legalized some form of medical or recreational marijuana.
