Benefits of marijuana

Marijuana has alot of potential benefits, why did I say it has POTENTIAL benefits? it’s because Marijuana likewise some other herbs or drug, react differently in different people/patients, before Doctors proceed into treating a patient, he would ask for the patient’s allergies and previous health issues, so as to know if a drug can be used to treat the patient or not, if a drug is misused/abused it can cause severe damages to the body, also note that too much of anything in life can kill, even too much of oxygen kills.

5 Potential Benefits of Marijuana

Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the major risk factors for all kinds of diseases mainly related to the heart and arteries.
