why medical marijuana should be legalized in the United States?
There is a vast amount of evidence that cannabis is extremely beneficial to human health, and has been the cause of many thousands of deaths around the world. However, despite this evidence there are many doctors who continue to recommend the use of cannabis for medical purposes. If you suffer from cancer, or are terminally ill I urge you to speak with your doctor about cannabis. I have written articles on my website about the dangers of cannabis and cancer, and why medical marijuana should be legalized in the United States.
Cannabinoid-based medicines are currently being investigated as a possible treatment for patients suffering from cancer, seizures, glaucoma, Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Cannabinoids act as anti-psychotic, anti-anxiety, analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents. Some of these newer Cannabinoid-based medications have fewer side effects than cannabis. cannabis has an almost three hundred percent approval rating among those who smoke it, according to a recent survey.
effective at suppressing the appetite
Cannabinoids come in two major forms; the Cannabidiol (CBD), also known as THC or tetrahydrocannabinols and the Cannabidiol hydrochloride (CBD hydrochloride), also called CBD for short. The molecular structure of CBD is very similar to that of the THC and is more identical than the THC in potency. These two forms of cannabidiol are believed to act in different ways on the human body. While the hydrochloride form has been shown to be more effective at suppressing the appetite, the CBD has been shown to suppress neuro-psychiatric illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is believed that both forms work by affecting the human brain chemistry so they cannot be smoked.
In the United States, hemp is a legal crop grown for the purpose of providing fiber, oil and fuel. In Canada, this plant is used to manufacture clothing and synthetic drugs. The use of hemp in the United States began in the late 19th century with the passing of the Compromise Act, which allowed states to prohibit the cultivating, processing, possessing and selling of cannabis. Today, approximately fourteen states still allow the cultivation and sale of cannabis plant, including Colorado, California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon and Vermont.
cannabis sativa and its relative components
There is much debate among medical scientists regarding the health benefits of cannabis sativa and its relative components. Hemp cannot be legally imported into the United States because it will be considered an illegal drug. Since only a small percentage of Americans are ingesting any form of hemp products, it would be nearly impossible to obtain enough supply to make any significant dent in our national drug problem. In addition, it will require the construction of facilities to harvest, process and sell the hemp products if hemp be made available for retail sale. The medicinal properties of the cannabis sativa strain have been proven through extensive scientific study to benefit people who suffer from chronic pain, nausea, chemotherapy, arthritis, glaucoma, epilepsy, AIDS, MS, Crohn’s disease, etc.
Since cannabis sativa is the parent plant of all strains of the Cannabaceae, it is believed that there are over two hundred and fifty varieties of the plants from which strains of the Cannabaceae can be taken. Some of the most common and potent strains of the Cannabaceae are Black Cohosh, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Hyoscyamus Niger, Indica canabiana, Potency Rutinformula, Symriseae alba, Sumaolii variegata, Lamiaceae and the families Allium genus. The Cannabaceae are some of the oldest and most widely used herbs in the world for medicinal purposes. In China and India, the Cannabaceae, often called Indian hemp, is a major source of plant materials for medicines, food and fibre.
