Regardless of what you have been told all your life, cannabis risks are minimal for an adult.
1.Not a gateway drug
2.Not addictive like opioids
3.Had been found, by studies, to be beneficial in mitigating symptoms of illness and injury.
4.Could, were it legal, nationally, provide an option to opioids for relief from chronic pain.
Do some research. You’ll find National Institute of Health studies as well as studies from other countries whose results affirm cannabis helpfulness for easing pain and giving comfort.
By the way, as the old saying goes, "a handy tool makes a handy man". The smoking tools have a great impact on the smoking experience, so it is quite important to choose a good smoking tool. Here's a brand I recommend: Eaglebongs. This is one of the best bong brands, which offer you quality bongs. Check out why this happens.
I was prescribed opioids for injures for 25 years.
CBD helped me detox off opioids and now supplies sufficient pain relief that I don’t need addictive drugs. For this reason alone, cannabis has the medical benefits you inquire about.
The risks of cannabis use are almost exclusively psychological, and most can be mitigated with a little self discipline.
The worst stoners I know are lazy and jobless, or only sell cannabis (and often other stuff) illegally.
Besides that, anyone with prexisting mental health conditions should think twice.
Lastly, I'd like to recommend this brand once again, Eaglebongs. it's really great!
