Ways Marijuana Can Help Medically

Do you think that weed is just for hippies? Well, that might have been true once upon a time but remember that today’s America is different from America of the 1960s and 1970s. Marijuana is a taboo subject, a remnant from the flower power movement and false accusations about the effects of the herb, but using it for medical purposes can have more benefits than you might have realized.

Natural Medicine

Did you know that marijuana used to be prescribed as medicine back in the early 1900s? It’s very recent that the plant has been demonized. While CBD is typically known as the “healing” chemical in medical marijuana, THC and CBD combination strains can actually help you medicinally — THC isn’t only for getting high! Some ailments that can benefit most from THC and CBD strains might include:

  • Depression and anxiety, along with other mental illnesses
  • Insomnia and relaxation
  • Migraines, nausea and body pain
  • Aching muscles and joints (topical creams tend to work best in these circumstances)

If you’re still not convinced, check out the data found on Kingharvest.org; there are more benefits than can be listed in a single paragraph. If you’ve never used weed for pain or illness, give it a try and see what you’ve been missing. You might be pleasantly surprised.
