1. You have receptors for it in you
Many of the human body’s physiological processes are controlled by the endocannabinoid system. These endocannabinoids are found in every living animal on the planet above hydra and mollusks. The system affects appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory amongst other things and responds directly to cannabis. So humans are biologically linked to this plant whether we like it or not.
2. The US patented it in 2003
Despite the official line that marijuana has ‘no medical benefits’, the US has patented marijuana: patent #6630507
On their official website they state:
“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”
3. It does cure skin cancer
Most people have heard about Rick Simpson and the work he has been doing with cancer patients and cannabis oil.

5. Smoking it doesn’t cause cancer
Smoking cannabis does NOT lead to lung cancer, the largest ever study of this shows.
6. Not taking cannabis may cause health problems
Scientists have started to speculate that the root cause of disease conditions such as migraines and irritable bowel syndrome may be a deficiency in endocannabinoids.
