For the Record: Facts About Medical Marijuana
In this age of connection and information, misconceptions continue to abound. Fortunately, we have the tools to fight off misinformation and enable ourselves to make the right decisions.
Medical marijuana seems to be one of these commonly misinformed topics. In this article, let us set the record straight, cut through the myths, and get through the facts.
“Medical” is just a ploy for marketing – not true. Marijuana has long been used for its medicinal benefits ranging from treating epilepsy, anxiety disorders, chronic pain, and many others. The FDA has also acknowledged its potential based on its approval of prescription-only cannabis-related products.
Medical marijuana is just an excuse to get “high” – not true. It can be surprising to some but there are hundreds of chemicals found in cannabis and while it is known for its “high” or psychoactive effects, some of its components – those components used for medicinal purposes – do not necessarily cause euphoria or intoxication.
Medical marijuana can be addicting – not true. While this is a valid concern, it is still a misconception. As long as you stick to the doctor’s prescription, medical marijuana is just like any other medication. There may be some effects but proper management can help.
