Why Smoking Weed is Good for You

Bar the fact that we know weed has been smoked for thousands of years, it has been a main subject in popular culture as well.  Joe Cocker and Ray Charles said let’s get stoned.  Cypress Hill told us they want to get high.   Dutch band Doe Maar even sang an entire song explaining how to grow weed at home! I’m not one for doing what someone else tells me to do, but being Dutch, weed has sort of been part of growing up.  That, and the fact that my parents were hippies and that I used to smoke joints with my mum when I was a student (my mum is well cool!).  Now, I could regal you with my own personal opinion on why weed is good for you, but you may just retort with your own personal opinion on why it isn’t.  So, let’s leave personal opinions aside for a minute and look at some scientific evidence that weed is actually good for you.  After that, light up and get high!

The Slightly Funny Reasons as to Why Marijuana Is good for You

One of the first reasons is that it is cool to smoke weed.  Not being funny, but it is.  It’s a mind opening experience and you will learn things about yourself and the world around you, because you release yourself from some of the constraints your mind automatically puts on you.  Plus, some really cool people have smoked pot in the past, including Bob Dylan, Jimmy Hendrix, Salvador Dali, heck even George Bush (but let’s not call him cool)!

Also, here is one fact statistic that nobody will be able to deny: there isn’t a single reported death caused by smoking pot.  Also undeniably true, stoners have lower rates of depression.

Cannabis and Cancer

One of the active properties in weed is the cannabinoids.  Extensive research has been done in this substance and there is some evidence that it may cure cancer.  Don’t stop the press and phone the major news agencies.  It isn’t as simple as smoking a dooby once a day and curing terminal cancer.  It isn’t exactly clear yet how cannabinoids work and how they can help, but there certainly is evidence that they do.

Not just that, weed has fantastic pain killing properties.  This is why there are some states in America where you can now get weed on prescription (that doesn’t mean free, by the way, it just means you won’t get arrested for it).  These pain killing properties can, at the very least, increase the quality of life of someone who suffers from cancer and potentially even increase their lifespan.

The Hemp Plant

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant, but with less THC (still sufficient to give you a nice buzz though).  Hemp is used in many industrial applications, including fabrics and people regularly eat hemp seeds.  The plant has some fantastic health benefits, including:

  • Helping towards creating a healthy heart
  • Keeping the mind healthy and free from depression
  • Keeping  your skin healthy
  • Helping you lose weight
  • Solving digestive disorders, including IBS
  • They can help control diabetes

Now, you need to do what you want to do.  Don’t listen to songs, don’t listen to me, don’t listen to scientists.  Listen to your heart and do what feels best.  I say light up and enjoy the ride and if this isn’t your opinion, can I at the very least ask you leave people who do alone?
