WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDICAL AND RECREATIONAL CANNABIS?
We have found the answer to be, it is the INTENTION with which you are choosing to consume it. Intention should be your guide to consuming cannabis. This mindful, intention-based approach is known as therapeutic cannabis use.
Studies are beginning to show that people who use marijuana as part of their regular routine tend to decrease their use of alcohol, tobacco, opiates and narcotics as a result.
INSTEAD OF TOBACCO
Trying to give up that nicotine habit? Cannabis is proving to be a great aid in doing just that! According to this Federal Report highlighted in the Chicago Times, some scientific evidence suggests there’s no link between marijuana smoking and lung cancer. Which may just be the final push you need to make a change.
INSTEAD OF ALCOHOL
A review posted in the Medical Journal stated that for people aged 15–49, alcohol use was the leading health risk factor across the globe. With those kinds of stats, it’s no surprise that 4 out of 5 consumers surveyed have replaced their weekly drinking with cannabis.
INSTEAD OF OPIATES
Two studies in the JAMA Internal Medicine state the rate of opiate prescriptions is lower in states where medical marijuana laws have been passed. The report also showed that “states with medical cannabis laws had a 24.8% lower mean annual opioid overdose mortality rate compared with states without medical cannabis laws.”
INSTEAD OF SLEEPING PILLS
According to the National Sleep Foundation, 50 to 70 million U.S. adults experience symptoms of a sleep disorder. Dr. Matt Roman, a Medical Marijuana Physician, says “Marijuana is an effective sleep aid because it restores a person’s natural sleep cycle, which so often falls out of sync with our schedules in today’s modern lifestyle.”
