(PORTLAND, OR) - There are many positive health treatment applications that can be derived from the marijuana or cannabis plant. The active ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is only one element of this natural plant with the potential to cure and manage varying ailments.
States across the union are increasingly adapting new laws that allow access to marijuana for medical purposes, and two additional states, Washington and Colorado, have decriminalized possession of the plant.
As we have reported so many times, marijuana has never caused a death. It is possible to overdose on marijuana, usually from eating brownies or other food prepared with high doses of THC. The results can be very unpleasant, up to and including "dry heave" vomiting, but it is not fatal.
So, we turn our attention to the list of ailments and diseases that marijuana is effective in treating. This is a long list and should be taken as a general guide, there are almost endless possibilities for treatment, and until around the turn of the 20th Century, marijuana was one of the most commonly used drugs prescribed by doctors.
It gives a person plenty to think about.
The legalization process has been a long and arduous one, and many people have gone to prison in their effort to promote the uses of this natural plant.
