On Oct 31st it was estimated that the 7 billionth person was born. In the US the population is around 311 million and the number of doctors is about 661,400. With that ratio it is not realistic for us to expect our doctor to be an expert on each one of us. Therefore it is important for us to take ownership of our health and sometimes our illnesses as well.
Our body is something that we should be an expert on. We should be informed of our illnesses so that we can make informed decisions with our doctors. We should also be aware of all options for treatments as well.
One controversial treatment is cannabis. The human body has an Endocannabinoid system that interacts with Cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids have been found in numerous studies to help alleviate symptoms caused by illness or cure them completely. Despite this the US Federal government still denies any medicinal value.
There are several states that have enacted medical marijuana laws that were backed by the people. California is one of them. In California you can discuss cannabis as a treatment option with your doctor. They in turn can write you a recommendation for cannabis which you can then grow or buy at a dispensary. In any state you can inform your doctor that you are treating your illness with cannabis and have them document your progress. Be sure to weigh the options if your state does not offer protections.
This natural plant has been found to be of use in many ways including being a possible cure for cancer. With cannabis proving time and again how beneficial it can be it is only a matter of time before America demands a stop to the prohibition of this miracle plant. This natural medical miracle needs to be free for all people to use not locked into the pharmacutical bureaucratic mess.
My hope with this blog is to bring attention to all the benefits of cannabis. I hope to show people how cannabis can relate to their disease or life in general. I believe with education people will start to see the lies and corruption that surround this plant. Please share the truth about cannabis and feel free to use this information in your fight against cannabis prohibition ~Cherry Girl
