Marijuana, Pot, Reefer, Weed, Chronic, Indo…whatever you may call it, there is so much going on in the cannabis world now that it may be a bit overwhelming. Hopefully I could help by breaking down Marijuana for you to help you get a better understanding of this wonderful medicine.
Generally, Marijuana or flower is often separated into 3 groups: Indicas, Sativas, and Hybrids.
Indicas are the heavier, sedative types of flower. They are great for stimulating appetite, helping with insomnia, great for relieving pain, headaches, depression, nausea and the list goes on. Indicas are used as pain relievers and sleeping aids. Indicas are nighttime meds and are usually stronger than Sativas or Hybrids.
Sativas can help you throughout your day. Sativas are a daytime medication that can help give you energy, help you focus, help you fight fatigue, they are great for inflammation and to help keep you medicated without getting you high and incapacitated. Sativas are great for early morning medicating and can help you through your day.
Hybrids can give you the best of both worlds. When you need a Sativa that will give you the pain relief you need but won’t put you down, like an Indica will, then you need yourself a Hybrid. Hybrids will keep you medicated with enough energy to get you through your day.
When you think about Marijuana as the medicine that it is, you can see how there might be so many strains and why. Just like how there are so many prescription pills, for many different mental, physical, and emotional problems and issues. There are probably just as many strains of Marijuana as there are pills. And, yes…. There are strains of Marijuana that act as an aphrodisiac. Sometimes pills are not always the only option.
YouTube is full is lots of educational Marijuana videos. One of my personal favorites is a man with Parkinson’s Disease who has severe tremors and after medicating himself he was able to stop his tremors almost completely.
So, if you could do so much for yourself as an adult and cure or stop your adult ailments with THC and or CBD, where do you stop? Or do we? What if your 8 or 9 year old daughter suffered from 50+ seizures a day? What would you do to help her have a better quality of life? Would you medicate her with dozens of prescription pills that do not reduce her seizures? Or medicate her with THC and CBD?
Next time you are on your computer or smartphone, Google Charlotte Fiji, a 10 year old little girl who is changing the Medical Marijuana Laws in the United States. You can even Google the strain of Marijuana that is named after her: Charlotte’s Web. A strain of Marijuana that is very high in CBD, but very low in THC. Charlotte went from having almost 100 seizures to 1-2 seizures every other day.
A lot of people look at what Charlotte’s parents did as wrong. They were giving their child an illegal drug. NO. They were administering Charlotte medicine. Medicine that ACTUALLY showed RESULTS!
Read about it for ourselves. Make your own decision and you will see that indeed there is absolutely NO REASON… To Fear the Reefer.
