As of today, the use of medical marijuana is legal in 30 states around the country, including Florida. Safe to say, a good number of the American public believes in and supports the use of cannabis for medical reasons. At least 84% of the general population believes that the drug is a justified medical aid, while 61% supports its use as a recreational drug. Pot usage is no longer as controversial as a decade ago, especially when it comes to its medicinal benefits. Although some of the positive effects of Florida medicinal cannabis may be a bit overstated by legalization advocates, recent research studies demonstrate that marijuana has legitimate medical uses, giving researchers more reasons to further study the drug’s medical uses.
The main active chemicals that offer medicinal merit in marijuana are cannabidiol or CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Studies have found that CBD seems to have positive impacts on the brain without giving the users a high. THC on the other hand, offers pain relieving properties, albeit mainly responsible for marijuana’s high. There is still much to learn about Florida medicinal cannabis, but its recognized medical benefits are enough to convince legislators to legalize its use in at least 30 states across the country. Below are some of the most widely recognized and supported medicinal uses of marijuana:
• For chronic pain – Recent reports from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine state that studies showcased definitive evidence that cannabinoids can be used to relieve chronic pain. As a matter of fact, the most common reason why people request Florida medicinal cannabis is for the treatment of pain.
• For muscle spasms – The same reports say that there is equally strong evidence that marijuana can be beneficial for muscle spasms due to multiple sclerosis. Other kinds of muscle spasms that are untreatable by other medications, such as diaphragmatic spasms likewise respond well to marijuana.
• For an increase in lung capacity – There is a fair amount of evidence suggesting marijuana doesn’t cause harm to the lungs unless the user also smokes tobacco. Marijuana doesn’t impair lung function. In fact, evidence also suggests that it may increase lung capacity as opposed to tobacco, which causes decreased lung function over time.
• For epileptic seizures – Other studies also shows that CBD helps in the management of treatment-resistant forms of epilepsy. A number of supporters report that Florida medicinal cannabis is about the only thing that can help them control their kids’ seizures.
