Quite a lot of recent research supports the fact that weed can and does help people with a variety of illnesses.
Seems the things it helps the most with are muscle related issues,pain,and seizures.
Benefits are the fact it’s not addictive,does not have to be smoked,can be taken as capsules,as “edibles” meaning cookies,candy,brownies etc,or “vaped”.
Beats ingesting highly addictive painkillers derived from opium poppies,or synthetic opiates.
NO overdose risk with weed-other than overdosing on snack food.
I know a lot of people who have tried every medication there is for their illness,and when they smoke some weed-they get instant relief.
While it doesn’t work for everyone-it works for well over half of those who use it for pain relfief,relief from muscle spasms,cramps,migraines,seizures,and nausea.
Something to consider for the prepper/survivalist community,along with other plant based medicine.
