Given the social stigmas about pot, especially around people who enjoy cannabis recreationally, it’s hard to convince people that legalizing isn’t simply condoning an activity they’ve been taught to think of as deviant or unacceptable.

The increasingly well-funded and reputable research being conducted on the effects of cannabis on human physiognomy and psychology are making some incredible discoveries. One super-important discovery is that the health benefits of ingesting marijuana can be had without the psychotropic effects commonly known as feeling high. What this means is that people who have reservations about using cannabis due to stigmas surrounding the pleasurable effects of the drug can still stand to gain from its legalization. This is because legalization would allow the medical science about marijuana to develop natural medicines derived from cannabis plants.

 

Cannabis Oil History & Interesting Facts: According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, cannabis use for medicinal purposes dates back at least 3,000 years. It was introduced into Western medicine in the 1840s by W.B. O’Shaughnessy, a surgeon who learned of its medicinal properties while working in India for the British East Indies Co. It became useful because of its analgesic, sedative, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and anticonvulsant effects.
