Do you think of marijuana as kind of monolithic? Or perhaps you think there are only two only kinds of cannabis — marijuana, and hemp?
Think again: Cannabis is quite the multi-faceted plant.
Think over 10,000, because that’s how many strains of cannabis there are.
One of the main reasons marijuana legalization is finally kicking in is its long list of medicinal healing effects — in fact there are likely over 500 medical benefits. On this site, we’ve accounted for over 100 strains and their associated medical benefits. Each strain has particular benefits, some of which are anecdotal, and others of which are supported by academic research.
Here is a list of ailments, disorders, and diseases that marijuana can help heal. You might want to sit down — the list is (positively) exhaustive.
Degenerative Bone/ Disc Disease
Herniated Disc Pain
Lower Body Pain
Pain — General
