Marijuana aka Cannabis Sativa has been used by modern humans for medicinal purposes since at least 4700 hundred years ago. There is documentation verifying it as one of the most versatile therapeutic herbs in history.
Unfortunately, seventy years ago a federal prohibition against Marijuana was created secondary to a financially driven agenda against it, resulting in a politically based solution: institutionalized unscientific public policy and law. When in fact medical marijuana when used properly, is more efficacious, safer and more versatile than most of what's promoted by the pharmaceutical industry.
Medical marijuana interacts with a person’s endocannabinoid system, a physiologic system within all people which functions to promote balance and healing at a cellular level.
The endocannabinoid system is already hard at work helping you recover from injuries, coordinate your immune system, balance the brain and nervous system, and much more. Using marijuana appropriately can enhance these healing properties.
