    Default Medical Uses Of cannabis

    In the past, it was seen strictly as a recreational product, but rapid advances in scientific and medical research have uncovered the astounding therapeutic potential of the cannabis plant. Cannabis can be used for a wide variety of ailments, however rigorous clinical researches are still relatively limited due to federal government regulations. Around the globe, however, controlled trials are taking place and more scientific information on the therapeutic effects of cannabis is being established.

    The basic premise of the wellness theory of marijuana is that the vast majority of consumers use medicinal cannabis as a wellness aid, to enhance the things that are most important in their lives– not as an intoxicant, to escape from life.

    But using cannabis for health provides many other less obvious wellness benefits—like extending patience, promoting gentleness and forgiveness, inspiring creativity, improving the appetite and enjoyment of food, making jokes funnier and sex more satisfying, enhancing our sense of play and wonder, and countless other ways of making us both healthier and happier. These too are all legitimate wellness uses for cannabis.

    I love it when the first half of the first sentence is clearly false. Saves time.

    At least 21 other sites, mate. Thankfully, the link to his MMJ site has been removed from his profile page.
