Cannabis contains CBD which is a chemical that impacts the brain, making it function better without giving it a high along with THC which has pain relieving properties. Both substances can be extracted and enhanced for use through short path distillation.

Users can get the following health benefits of cannabis: Relief from chronic pain, improves lung capacity, helps lose weight, fight cancer, regulate and prevent diabetes, regulate seizures, treat depression, alleviate anxiety, mend bones, helps with ADHD, treatment for glucoma, helps with PTSD symptoms, treats inflammatory bowel diseases, helps with tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease and it also helps with alcoholism. Another benefit is the fiber of the cannabis plant can be cultivated as industrial hemp with uses in textile manufacturing.

Some byproducts of cannabis include Marinol (dronabinol) which is used for the control of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapeutic agents used in the treatment of cancer and to stimulate appetite in AIDS patients. Cesamet (nabilone) is another product which is used for the control of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapeutic agents used in the treatment of cancer.

Medical Marijuana can be used to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Huntington's disease, Inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, muscle spasms, neuropathy, Parkinson's disease, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD), Seizures (epilepsy), severe pain (an alternative to opioid use), severe nausea, spinal cord injury with spasticity, cachexia or dramatic weight loss and muscle atrophy (wasting syndrome).

It can be taken in various forms for use, including oil, tablet or capsule, liquid that can be vaporized, nasal spray, and the traditional dried leaves and buds thay can be smoked or taken as edibles.

All plants/herbs/drugs have side effects, both positive and negative. But clearly Cannabis brings more good that bad and should no longer be illegal in the country of Botswana. Regulations can be made about it's use and it can help largely with saving the dying economy.
