In the last few decades, we have been taught that the use of cannabis, more commonly known as marijuana, has negative effects on one’s physical and mental health. Our generation was raised with the mindset of avoiding this substance at all costs. Little did we know that most of what we think about marijuana is unfounded. All the talks about its negative effects and so little about the positive things it could bring to the table. Recent studies have shown that cannabis has a great potential in the medical field. The only thing that is lacking is human discipline.

            There are many studies that have proven the benefits of cannabis to human health. It has been shown to be able to slow down or kill some types of cancer cells which would eliminate the downsides of conventional cancer treatments like chemotherapy. It has also been shown to be able to treat mental disorders. It can help people avoid Alzheimer’s disease. An extract called CBD(cannabidiol) which contains very little amounts of the component which causes a person to become “high”. Strains if marijuana which are CBD dominant have been shown to have little effects to the patient’s consciousness. It has also been shown to be able to relieve insomnia, anxiety, spasticity and even life threatening disorders like epilepsy. It can also be used to relieve chronic pain and has the benefit of not being as addictive as opioids. It is also impossible to overdose on cannabis. It can also relieve any type of nerve pain in general.

            In conclusion, the pros of using marijuana for medical use far outweighs its cons. Legalizing it for use in medicine could help countless people in their struggle with various diseases and disorders. It has been proven to be capable of doing so much and with more research and development, who knows what more we can learn from it? Think of all the people out there right now who are suffering just because they can’t use marijuana to treat themselves. Their lives could be so much easier if only its use in medicine were legal.
