I am amazed how long it has taken for cannabis to finally gain the yes in this country.
Marijuanna has absolutely been used as a medicinal fix since ancient times.
The psychoactive effects were often a portion of religious events & rituals. It was used to treat depression, stress, anxiety, nausea, inflammation & as an anesthetic. It was brought to this country in the late 1500s by the Spanish & was grown by early settlers. It wasn’t until the government failed in their war on alcohol that they needed an up-to-date target & focused on marijuana. The pitfall propaganda was supported by companies worried about hemp taking over the paper business. Because of this, the studies on the potential benefits of cannabis to the health community are limited. Research has been restricted to a single facility since 1968! Just this past year the Drug Enforcement Administration finally initiated the process of registering further American companies to produce marijuana for scientific & medical research. Hopefully now that public opinion has started to change & legalization is gaining ground, more studies will supply firm proof & help more people get the help they need. There are growing success stories from people who have used cannabis to treat sleeping disorders, PTSD, migraines, arthritis, dementia, nausea & all sorts of medical symptoms. The local dispensary carries a wide variety of consumption methods, including flower, pre-rolls, tinctures, topicals, concentrates & a large menu of edibles. I am amazed that with a government-issued identification, I can walk into any dispensary in the state & make a purchase. It’s been a long time coming.
