To this day, Marijuana continues to be controversial. Most people view it as an addictive substance that is prohibited to use by law. Some people believe it is not addictive but has wonderful healing capacities. If you do a research, you will discover that Marijuana is both addictive and not addictive.
Marijuana is a green, brown and sometimes gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, seeds, stems and flowers of the plant called Cannabis Sativa. There are more than 200 street names for Marijuana. Its major active chemical is TCH, delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol which is a psychoactive ingredient. When smoked, it rapidly passes from lungs to bloodstream and carried to the brain and other organs in the body. The THC could start a chain of cellular reactions that lead to the ‘high’ that most users experience. There are many chemicals in the substance that could affect one’s health.
Nevertheless, Marijuana has been proven as a powerful medicine to treat inflammation, pain, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis because of its amazing chemical known as beta-cryophyllene. It soothes the immune system, blocks pain signals and increases bone mass without interfering with the central nervous system or causing euphoria. Since beta-caryophyllene occurs naturally in a lot of food and does not get people high, it could become an ideal medication.
