At least one of you is thinking that getting high is the mental health benefit.
It could be for some people but there are actual applications for THC and CBD products when it comes to a variety of mental health issues.
First off anxiety and stress across the world are continuously on the rise.
For some people their anxiety levels are so high that they can barely function on a day to day basis.
Marijuana can provide a calming effect on the brain which can help people feel more balanced and less stressed.
This is also being applied to PTSD sufferers who suffer from massive anxiety attacks and other types of episodes.
Along the same lines people who might have behaviorally outbursts such as those in the midst of an attack or those with dementia tend to have more controlled and less problems when calmed used CBD based products.
While not considered by everyone to be a mental health, government studies as well as independent studies are showing that Marijuana use can help people recover from addictions and help through withdrawals and cravings.
The biggest potential is the use of these products for pain management which reduces the likelihood of long term opioid use and addiction.
