Legal marijuana is a holistic life changer for me

There is no question that legal cannabis has completely changed my entire life.

Without legal weed, I would not have the life I have been given and now take for granted.

Thankfully, I discovered just how important legal cannabis plus CBD products are to my entire life. This life has not been particularly kind to me. There have been a lot of things that I wasn’t in control of that deeply affect me. The patterns of anxiety plus depression were set up when I was unquestionably young. My parents were always convinced that I would somehow just snap out of it. Finally, they just decided that I was an excruciating seed plus pretty much just gave up on me. However, they never really took the time to find out what the root causes for our depression were. I had to do that on my very own once I got to university. Thankfully, I got into some therapy plus began to understand the fundamental reasons for this life being the way it is. Without that experience, I would never have been in the position to embrace my entire life. When I was in graduate school, I dated a lady there who used recreational marijuana. For her, it was about letting go of all the expectations plus the taxing job that was getting a masters. She encouraged me to try this new recreational cannabis. Within the first few attempts at recreational weed, I found a state of being that was also completely foreign to me. I was glad plus at peace. Luckily, there is now legal weed plus I don’t have to worry any longer about trying to find our recreational weed.

The history of cannabis

The use of marijuana has been a volatile topic in this country for a very long time.

Over the last few years, the legalization of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes has finally gained support.

Back in the early sixteen hundreds, cannabis was used in several states as legal tender. In Virginia, a law made it mandatory for every farmer to cultivate hemp. By the end of the nineteenth century, cannabis was a staple of medicinal products sold in pharmacies. Anyone could buy them. In 1906 the Pure Food and Drug Act was passed and marijuana was one of the drugs that became regulated. In 1931, the Federal Bureau of Narcotics deemed marijuana illegal. A year later, the Uniform State Act left it up to state governments to control marijuana usage. Right around the time of World War II, there was a decline in marijuana import that led to the US Department of Agriculture creating a program to stimulate the growth of hemp. Those farmers were offered a deferment, allowing them to grow the plant rather than heading to the front lines. By 1943, almost 375,000 acres in this country were producing hemp. In the 1960’s marijuana was a popular recreational drug and became part of a culture that was protesting against the Vietnam War. Despite a great deal of negative propaganda over the years, marijuana is one of the most commonly used substances in the United States. In a survey, almost 94 million people indicated that they had used cannabis at least once. The high from THC helps people to alleviate pain, stress, anger, fear and social anxiety. Cannabis has become a more than ten billion dollar yearly business with over twenty million active users in this country.

Economical reasons to legalize cannabis

For anyone who still has doubts over legalizing cannabis, they should take a look at the long list of medicinal benefits.

If that doesn’t convince, there are also economical reasons.

A study conducted three years ago discovered that legalizing cannabis at the federal level that year would have generated over 130 billion dollars in tax revenue between then and 2025. Passing favorable cannabis laws also reduces spending. The federal government spends about four billion dollars every year to uphold marijuana laws. There are a lot of cops spending their time arresting people for carrying and smoking a little bit of pot. Legalizing marijuana would save a great deal of money. Plus, taking marijuana off the list of controlled substances would trim costs associated with court cases that go to trial. There’s also the bonus of creating millions of jobs. We’ve seen that in states where laws have been passed to legalize cannabis, dispensaries and shops are opening up on every street corner. Taking a cannabis plant from seed to sale requires a lot of processes and people. There’s farmers, processors, retailers and distributors all involved. There’s training centers opening up to educate budtenders. Let’s not forget the lenders and builders who specialize in developing retail outlets. Consider the businesses who sell packaging and labeling materials as well as the gear for cannabis consumption. All of these businesses create jobs, earn money and pay taxes, stimulating our economy. It won’t be long before our government and the rest of the world realizes that legalizing marijuana is profitable. It was greed that led to propaganda against cannabis and eventually listing it as a controlled substance. It may very well be this same greed that leads to full legalization.

Cannabis is proving effective in a variety of treatments

Cannabis has often been accused of being a gateway drug.

Those who speak out against marijuana like to claim that anyone who tries it will soon turn to harder and more dangerous substances.

The trust is that the majority of marijuna consumers don’t go on to other substances. A recent study discovered that people who use hard drugs tend to first abuse alcohol and tobacco before escalating to something more potent. Unfortunately, there is a lot of negative propaganda surrounding cannabis. As more and more success stories are told and new research is conducted, public opinion is gradually changing. We have learned that cannabis helps to alleviate pain in multiple sclerosis and works to control epileptic seizures. CBD is showing promise in stopping cancer cells from spreading. Endocannabinoid compounds in marijuana are effective in treating depression, alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and work to improve cognitive performance and concentration in those with ADHD. More and more doctors are prescribing cannabis to alleviate pain associated with arthritis and to alleviate symptoms of Dravet syndrome. There is hope that the anti-inflammatories in endocannabinoids can fight the brain inflammation that causes Alzheimer’s disease. From Crohn’s disease to glaucoma and PTSD, cannabis is delivering relief, hope and better quality of life. It’s about time that this holistic plant be made readily available to those in need. While we are still a long way from the necessary studies, legalization and acceptance, we are finally on the right track. For cannabis enthusiasts like myself, we’ve waited a long while and it’s time to celebrate progress.

 

 

How to grow marijuana

Cannabis isn’t as addictive as people think

A lot of people like to claim that smoking marijuana once could lead to addiction.

This is one of the many misconceptions about cannabis.

A recent study showed that fewer than ten percent of marijuana users are dependent upon it. In comparison, of cocaine and heroin users, around twenty-five percent of them are addicted. Tobacco was shown to be the most addictive substance. And yet, an adult can buy a pack of cigarettes in any state across the country. You don’t need to first go to the doctor and get medical clearance and a prescription. Despite the fact that smoking is entirely harmful, there are no restrictions. Cannabis is not harmful and provides a great deal of potential in medical treatment. Until very recently, research into the health effects of this holistic plant was against the law. We are just beginning to realize the many benefits cannabis can provide. Until a lot more studies are completed, we’re reliant on the success stories of consumers. We do know that marijuana can work to alleviate symptoms associated with numerous health conditions. Physicians around the world prescribe it to patients suffering nausea associated with chemotherapy. It has shown promise in helping people with HIV/AIDS combat poor appetite. Marijuana is effective in relaxing muscle tension and spasms, helps manage chronic pain and reduces inflammation. More and more people are turning to cannabis to treat insomnia. Strains such as Grand Daddy Purple, Blackberry Kush, Purple Nepal and Herijuana are helping people to sleep more peacefully. Fortunately, public opinion is changing and cannabis is becoming more accessible to people who really need it.

There are a lot of misunderstandings about cannabis

Marijunana is derived from the cannabis plant and used for medicinal and recreational purposes across the world.

  • There are over 480 compounds found in the plant and many ways to consume them.

While it’s commonly smoked or vaporized, cannabis-infused foods and drinks have been used since as far back as 1000 BC. Unfortunately, marijuana was targeted for a smear campaign, resulting in a bad reputation. Many people still see it as strictly a drug to get high. While both medicinal and recreational marijuana is a part of history, not many people totally understand its potential. Most often, those people who speak out against legalizing cannabis are basing their opinion on myths and misunderstanding. In recent years, new studies conducted around the world have proven a variety of medical benefits from marijuana use and public opinion has rapidly begun to improve. Something most people aren’t aware of is that no deaths have ever been caused by marijuana overdose. Reports indicate that a person would need to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC contained in a joint to die from overdose. In other words, it’s just not possible. In fact, cannabis is safer than the majority of legal pharmaceuticals. It is natural and causes fear side effects than many prescription drugs. The health risks of consuming marijuana are much lower than with drinking alcohol or smoking tobacco. Alcohol can be blamed for directly or indirectly resulting in thousands of deaths across this country every year. Legalizing more dangerous drugs while keeping marijuna criminalized makes no sense and undermines the credibility of warnings against substance abuse.

Surprising survey results about cannabis

I work at a high end medicinal and recreational cannabis dispensary.

We see over a hundred customers walk through our doors each and every day.

We’re so busy that we’ve extended our business hours, staying open later throughout the week and offering hours on Saturday and Sunday as well. Our customers all have very different yet distinct reasons for visiting our facility. They have diverse preferences as far as consumption methods, strains and terpenes. We recently asked our client to take a survey about their consumption practices. We were overwhelmed by the response and surprised by the results. The number one reason our customers use cannabis is for better sleep. We’ve found that a lot of adults, especially older women, struggle to fall and stay asleep. Cannabis tinctures are wonderful for this. Second on the list was for mental health issues and to relieve anxiety. Since just about everybody suffers from some type of stress, we realize that many of our clients are finding cannabis helpful for relaxation. The third reason was simply for having a good time and socializing, followed by pain relief and reducing inflammation. We also had results from clients treating cancers, looking for MS symptom relief and to stimulate appetite. When our clients share their success stories, they help others to figure out what might work for them. Unfortunately, the FDA prohibits us from making any claims about the specific effectiveness of cannabis. It’s much like apple sellers can’t make claims about the efficacy of apples, even though we all know they’re good for you.
