Effects of Marijuana and its use
Effects of cannabis during recreational use are very well known to everyone but cannabis has also many great impacts when it’s used as a medicament. Medical marijuana can be used for patients suffering from cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, muscle spasm, seizures, severe pain or nausea.
The most used synthetic cannabinoid products are dronabinol and nabilone. The first mentioned is used to control nausea and vomiting caused by the chemotherapy treatment of cancer and to stimulate appetite in AIDS patients. The latter has very similar impacts and it’s also used in cancer treatment.
The first country, which legalized the recreational use of marijuana was Uruguay in 2013. Canada became the second one in 2018 and the first member of G7 and G20 who did that.
