The stigma behind Cannabis

As we all know, Cannabis is at an all time HIGH when it comes to business opportunities, patient awareness, and within the educational system. Unfortunately, the stigma is still there and continues to impede in its progress.

Cannabis has played an important role going back hundreds of years. It’s been documented that even some of our founding fathers cultivated this amazing plant. Marijuana was widely used to treat many ailments during the mid 1800’s -1930’s ranging from menstrual cramps, anxiety relief, epilepsy and even opiate and alcohol addiction. 1851 was the year it was recognized as medicine and added to the U.S Pharmacopoeia by the name of Extractum Cannabis or Extract of Hemp and listed until 1942, when it lost its human rights.

Today, the federal government classifies marijuana as a schedule 1 drug, basically meaning it serves no medical purpose and deeming it an abusive substance. Sadly so, it shares a category with heroin. However cocaine and meth are considered schedule 2 substances, making it seem “less dangerous”.

We currently have 30 states with legal medical marijuana, and 9 with legal recreational & medical marijuana. This medicine can now be used in different ways such as tinctures, capsules, flower and edibles to help treat adults, as well as children and pets with many health conditions such as seizures, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, pain relief, and other underlying illnesses. There is also the non-psychoactive component of Cannabis, Cannabidiol (CBD), which also helps relieve anxiety and provides pain relief. This gem is legal in all the states. You can also find this in the form of flower, capsules, tinctures and rubs/salves etc. I’d also like to remind you that cannabis helps many discontinue the use of narcotics such as Percocet (Oxycodone), Codeine, Xanax, and other potential life threatening pills which are abused and causes addiction. These can potentially kill you and are prescribed by certified medical doctors.

To date, no deaths have been linked to the use of marijuana. As we continue to educate ourselves and spread awareness, we can move forward with this movement to a better quality of life. In order to end the stigma, we must remove the negative views and be more openminded that prohibition will come to an end.
