Marijuana, known in the slang as weed, pot, skank today is a common topic of many debates, whether it is harmful or not, whether it should be allowed or even more to forbidden?
The author’s view of this text is that those who talk most about marijuana actually know about it less. On marijuana today, politicians gather points ahead of the elections instead of educating and understanding what marijuana is, how it works, what its dangers are, and which might be beneficial.
THC and other active ingredients
Marijuana contains about 400 chemical substances that are antibacterial, but may also cause hallucinations. The main ingredient of cannabis is THC. Skank contains up to 3 times more THC than ordinary dried marijuana.

Marijuana as medicine?
A lot has been explored whether marijuana can be used for medical purposes. The biggest problem is that it has a lot of ingredients, so it’s hard to determine how much it is used efficiently and safely. Strong scientific background is lacking, but research and experience are enough to tell more about the certain benefits of cannabis. For example, cannabis can reduce the unwanted effects of chemotherapy. Drugs used in cancer are among the strongest and often cause consecutive vomiting. Marijuana alleviates these negative effects and makes life easier for patients. Multiple sclerosis is another disease where cannabis extract can be useful although research has not been confirmed.
The list of illnesses that can be treated with marijuana is based mainly on allegations. These diseases or symptoms are as follows:
headaches and migraines
prevention of cardiac attack and stroke
sexual indifference (cannabis can stimulate sexual desire)
