Over the last few decades, some researchers have been devoted studying what cannabis has to offer in the human body. Aside from its noted addictive content (which is why most states still consider it as illegal), it soon resulted in a historic discovery that made the medical industry pay more attention to what Marijuana heals, and what can Marijuana do for medical society in the future.
More than two thirds of U.S. states legalized marijuana for medical treatments and more countries are considering to do the same. The FDA has only approved Medical marijuana for treatment of two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

What Is Medical Marijuana?
Medical marijuana is basically the same strain as recreational marijuana, the only difference is that it’s taken for medical purposes only. It is used to treat certain diseases and conditions using marijuana plant or chemicals.
As marijuana plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids, it has its differing effect on a person’s body. The marijuana chemicals that’s used for medicines are cannabidiol (CBD) and Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – produce and provide the “high” effect when they smoke or eat edible marijuana.
What Does Marijuana Can Treat?
Although there are lots of research on-going and some have not been proven to be cured by the marijuana plant itself, still here are a number of conditions marijuana can treat:
- Multiple Sclerosis and Muscle Spasms
- Seizure Disorders
- Severe Nausea or Vomiting
- Alzheimer’s Disease

What Does It Do In Your Body
The National Institute on Drug Abuse says marijuana as a gateway drug (to those using other drugs) can be undeniably addictive. An individual who uses marijuana more often – with higher THC level – will likely become dependent and difficult to stop when decided.

However, research point angles on what cannabinoids might do in your body, including:
Kill Cancer Cells And Slow Tumor Growth
Stimulate appetite and improve weight gain in people with cancer and AIDS
Relax tight muscles in people with MS
Reduce inflammation and relieve pain
Prolong or make Alzheimer’s progression
