You can’t deny the benefits of medical marijuana. It helps millions of people all over the world to win in their battles against pain, anxiety, depression, and various neurological conditions. It is the safest known medicine capable of relieving symptoms of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, and anxiety. A long list of medical conditions and overall benefits of medical cannabis are impossible to ignore! So why does the government so heavily control it? The issue is that there are two most frequently discussed types of cannabinoids in every leaf and stem of marijuana:
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) with a psychotic effect
CBD (cannabidiol) and similar cannabinoids (CBN, CBL, CBC, CBG, etc.)
CBD has significant medical benefits and provides a strong therapeutic effect allowing you to calm down and relax. THC has a different effect on your mind and can cause some adverse effects when used unreasonably. To protect people from abusing recreational marijuana, the government regulates the way we use weed! I neeeeed it! Many people need a cannabis card to receive their medication without any issues. In California, The Compassionate Use Act allows people to use medical marijuana with a recommendation from a doctor for any medical condition.
