Morphing the Mindset of Marijuana
In recent years, the image of a marijuana user has morphed from the absent-minded stoner to the picture of someone in tune with homeopathic options for managing their lives. The cannabis industry has become a vehicle for medical research, focusing on mental health treatment chronic pain management and recreational use. Legal cannabis is now a fast-growing global industry, available in various products to a wide range of consumers for various uses. With the emergence of new products and brands, it’s difficult to know which to trust. Considering the current opioid crisis in the United States, legalized medical marijuana is becoming a viable, less addictive alternative in the treatment of chronic pain. In one medical marijuana study, 80% of users noted cannabis helped reduce chronic pain, and 50% of those had previously been treated with opioids. There’s a decrease in opioid prescriptions in states where marijuana is legalized, lessening the crippling effects of the epidemic nationwide. Today, some of the most well-known cannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC and cannabidiol CBD) are being acknowledged by the medical world for their medicinal properties. CBD, in particular, has drawn the attention of several researchers, focusing on its impact on epilepsy, neuropsychiatric disorders, cancer, anxiety, and other conditions. With the option available to patients seeking relief, Just Cannabis is actively developing quality products containing THC and CBD.
