Medical Marijuana Provides Relief and Investment Opportunity Medical marijuana continues to be one of the most controversial forms of relief offered in some parts of the USA. The continuing struggles between medical science which shows definitive proof of the benefits of medical marijuana use for some patients clashes with the long held illegality of marijuana use in most jurisdictions. Medical marijuana is currently used in the treatment of symptoms from diseases including:
Stroke Nausea and Pain Crohn’s Disease Cancer Anxiety Disorders Arthritis Retinal Damage
This is a much abbreviated list of the current diseases and conditions treated with medical marijuana. In many situations the THC and Cannabidiol which comes from marijuana is not used in the direct treatment of the disease, but is used to battle the discomfort and nausea created by aggressive treatment required to combat the disease. A good example is the benefits of medical marijuana for individuals suffering from severe nausea and pain during chemotherapy treatments for cancer. Medical Marijuana Compared to Street Marijuana The argument against the use of medical marijuana is largely due to engrained beliefs about the inappropriate use of non-medical marijuana. The differences are stark. In many situations users of medical marijuana never smoke the marijuana. They are given treatments of THC or Cannabidiol extracts from the marijuana. Even in situations where the marijuana is used by smoking it is a very different case than illegal marijuana. Medical marijuana is grown in highly controlled centers which work to breed marijuana which provides the greatest benefit, not the biggest high as sought in the illegal market. Medical marijuana is free from pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals which can cause potential problems for users. Since the use of medical marijuana is closely monitored it poses little risks of leading to addictions to other drugs. Medical science continues to uncover new and important attributes to marijuana which are putting greater pressure on more communities to embrace legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes. This growing acceptance is leading to rapid growth for the leading research and production facilities for medical grade marijuana. Is Medical Marijuana a Growth Industry?
Medical marijuana stocks remain a potentially volatile market as politicians battle to support the concerns of their constituents, but in growing numbers voters support the legalization and easy access to marijuana under the supervision of a doctor. If you are looking for a potentially explosive investment opportunity keep your eyes attuned to news concerning marijuana acceptance throughout the USA and other parts of the world. Also, keep your ears open listening for new breakthroughs from medical science who are exploring exciting new findings with CBD. Equally important, pay close attention to election news on local, state, and national levels, since one of the biggest constraints to the growth of the market is political, not medical. Medical marijuana use is expected in rise in coming years as greater acceptance flows through the general public and with new the uses being discovered by medical researchers. It is an exciting industry to watch, regardless of if you need it for personal use, or are seeking medical marijuana stocks as an investment.
