    Medical marijuana has been treating serious illnesses for years now. I think we can all agree that it has its own purpose in terms of medicinal use.

  3. I enjoyed this talk! One topic that kept going through my mind was about the ethics of medical marijuana use, especially viewed through the lens of a few principles of ethics such as beneficience and non-maleficence.

    Beneficence refers to the obligation of healthcare providers to act in the best interest of their patients. In the context of medical marijuana use, this principle suggests that healthcare providers should consider the potential benefits of using medical marijuana to alleviate symptoms or treat medical conditions. For example, medical marijuana has been shown to be effective in managing chronic pain, nausea, and muscle spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis.

    Non-maleficence refers to the obligation to avoid harm or minimize the risk of harm to patients. In the context of medical marijuana use, this principle suggests that healthcare providers should consider the potential risks of using medical marijuana, such as the risk of addiction, impairment of cognitive function, and the potential for adverse drug interactions. Healthcare providers should carefully weigh the potential benefits of medical marijuana against its potential risks before recommending it to patients.

    Overall, these two views provide a unique perspective to take into account when a provider is deciding on how to help their patient. Patients should be provided with accurate information, based on evidence of research, to make an informed decision about whether or not to use it.

    Read More Charlotte's Web: An Origin Story It Started with One Girl At a very early age, Charlotte Figi was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy. Her mother, Paige, extensively researched health options that led her to a little-known plant compound called cannabidiol, or CBD. This was the doctor who took the risk. We are all grateful

    i dont have seizures its more arthitis & mental health for me

    with what ive had not top quality stuff ive probably only had few times in my 18yrs of smoking when i knew people in first 5yrs being here

    struggled alot after not havin such people skills & knwledge of weed & it being laced & side effects of it
    but with such experience i think i wana b a grower in future & knwin what it can do with quality ive had ive seen glimpses of its power y i wana grow my own top quality stuff to c the best of it
    no dealer wants to supply u that
    + they dont have strains right for my health or consistent at such potenicy if u c it from a dealers preceptive of how he wants u hooked & y we get such quality
    y im lookin at my own to get the best outta the high coz i believe good quality cannabis wil give u that buzz at such a high
    in future i'l put in care & such plants need & i heard brownies were good or ediables in stronger & weirder high from other peoples experience i understand or hav some idea of what it would b like sounds great
    i need at least a ounce to make some brownies lol

    but great medicine right strains for right things is whats needed & havin rituals & puttin right amount of effort into ur plants for such a high
    its worth it internally results with what quality i had im anxious to c highest high with plant i make we cant expect our dealer to provide us the greatest bud & my people skills isnt that good yet

    but definitly great medicine for mental health & sometimes arthitis with what ive had in past
    i would recommend it

  30. Hope Love says:

    ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Natural therapies from nature. Hope the demonization and stigma associated with the plant changes for the good of mankind. Man made chemicals seem to be what has been preferred for so long, for too long now.

  31. What a True Miracle ๐Ÿ’— Thank You Ted and Thank You Doctor Shackelford for sharing your Story. Most important Thank You to GOD for Creating things that help us to Live Life. I am Blessed to own over 115 acres in Colombia with a Waterfall and River and Mountain and the Family Goal is to Plant and Grow and Harvest and Export Legal Medical Marijuana to America and any country that needs it and to bring the price of it down to be more affordable. Its silly that this plant is not grown like crazy all around the World. I have never had a Seizure and I hope and pray and wish never to have one. I have no anxiety. I can explode in Anger if I have to when anyone tells me something I don't like or believe or tells me to do something I don't want to. I have never tried Mariquana. I believe its put on Earth just as Veggies and Fruits are put on Earth. Cheers to a Greener Future & Life.

    We've heard stories like these already how about talking about something new?

  40. Could this have been from the mother ingesting cannabis during pregnancy? Sounds like sheโ€™s got connections.

  41. I smoked cannabis for roughly 2 years from age 18-20 lightly. And recently Iโ€™ve been listening to Huberman lab podcast, he just came out with an episode called โ€œthe effects of cannabisโ€, and has shown me that cannabis is not all good, especially in the younger generation, he is a neuroscientist and talks about how it effects development, great episode and I encourage everyone to go watch it!!!
