Contrary to a few decades ago when medicinal cannabis was regarded as a demonic plant, today medical professionals are campaigning for its legalization. This is because it has been proved, via a plethora of medical research and studies, that cannabis can suppress and curb, as well as cure an array of diseases. Medicinal weed has been used to successfully relieve pain, nose dive anxiety, stress, and depression, as well as suppress vomiting bouts and increase appetite.
Therefore, it has immensely benefited patients with cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, AIDS, and Glaucoma. They have been able to manage pain emanated by these life-threatening diseases without the need of synthetic painkillers. In fact, most prefer to use medicinal cannabis for pain management rather than the commonly used pharmaceutical medications. It is postulated that medicinal cannabis is more effective than the chemical-based pharmaceutical drugs.
Also, cannabis is currently used to curb the discomforts caused by arthritis, as well as other nausea and pain emanating diseases. This explains the exhilarating effect it has on women with menstrual cramps. On the same hand, women experiencing their menopause ecstatically use cannabis to control their mood swings, hot flashes, and chills. As a result, today, there is an intense medical research being conducted to prove the benefits that medicinal weed has on anxiety related ailments such as depression.
Also, the wondrous effects of smoking weed with a weed grinder have increased its popularity in Canada. It is extensively used to cure ulcerative colitis and Crohn?s disease.

This enables them to quickly attack mutants and other disease causing factors inside the human body. These facts are in respect to the findings of the medical studies conducted in England by the University of Bath, in 2005.
Being a natural plant, cannabis neither contains chemical elements nor other artificial ingredients added to enhance its effectiveness. Therefore, since its inception into the medical field, it has never been associated with emulating side effects. This is in contrast to most of the recommended pharmaceutical drugs, which contain a myriad of chemicals to enhance their effectiveness. As a result, most patients using these synthetic drugs for a prolonged period develop various side effects, which may eventually be detrimental to their health.
For instance, most of the immunosuppressive medication being used today causes patients to experience diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea bouts, as well as abdominal pain and to some extent liver damage. On the other hand, steroids increase the probability of peptic ulcers, depression, anxiety and bone thinning development. Moreover, mesalamine the commonly used anti-inflammatory emanates both severe and mild side effects such as the development of blood disorder, tremors, pancreatitis, fatigue, hair loss and itchiness.
