Cannabis Use for Health Benefits: Why Legalization Matters


Canada continues to be a world-leader when it comes to marijuana. From home-grown bud to concentrates, among other cannabis products, the industry is prepared to expand more. The only real thing stopping Canadians from receiving the full benefits of cannabis is legalization. It won’t take long, though, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party is set on eventually legalizing recreational marijuana use. Not only will this legitimize the other leaf’s place on our flag, but it can also create more jobs, bolster tax revenues, and regulate distribution. Legalization will empower more people to speak about and share the good in weed. Overall, the furthering of cannabis use, whether medicinal or recreational, offers more pros than cons.

Shattering Stereotypes: Cannabis Use for Health and Pain Control

Take, for instance, how more people are now looking at cannabis for its health benefits. Long gone are the days when pot smokers were seen as dregs of society.  A progressive and smarter society, after all, now realizes the impact of marijuana. Diseases, such as glaucoma, cancer, and Alzheimer’s – just to name a few – can be treated through cannabis in its various forms. CBD prevents cancer cells from spreading by shutting down the Id-1 gene. THC impedes amyloid plaques from forming, and eventually slows down Alzheimer’s progress, thus, halting its symptoms. Research has proven how cannabis use can significantly improve the quality of life, as well, by treating glaucoma, arthritis and epileptic seizures. Imagine how much pain and struggle a person with epilepsy goes through during a seizure, especially if it occurs every so often. Reducing the number of seizures from a hundred to less than twenty in a month makes life much better. Apart from these medicinal benefits, marijuana can help already-healthy people become healthier through simple everyday activities. Better sleep, better appetite, and a calmer mood on a daily basis look very much like a win. The only actual negative thing about weed, really, is that it can get you arrested. Despite this, the vast number of people who smoke pot, not only in Canada but across the globe, is a testament to its beneficial use. Today, the image of a pothead as a “slacker” barely exists; if anything, people who use weed are perceived as open-minded, pragmatic and cerebral. Legalization can only reinforce the benefits of cannabis use and change society’s perceptions.
