Whereas the rest of the governments have shown their concerns about the consequences of legalizing and consuming it. The legalization of marijuana is hardly possible because of its close connection with cannabis.
The reason behind the ban of Marijuana:
A very dangerous compound called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in leaves of marijuana is the reason why it has gained a bad reputation. It is because this compound when consumed causes major damage to the nervous system of humans further causing unconsciousness, mood swings, weakness, change in behavior and many other health-related issues. It is considered as a psychoactive drug because of its harmful effects on the brain.
Legal selling and usage of hemp flowers:
Hemp flowers are gaining so fame these days because it is used as an alternative for smoking drugs like weed and pod. It contains the compounds of THC in a very less amount than any other drug which is why it is legal in most of the countries including the United States, many European countries and the United Kingdom. The CBD weed strains are cut off and packed after the flower is grown fully and set ready for sale. There are many companies that specially deal with the finest quality of cannabis which is legally traded.
Fights with anxiety and stress:
Another reason why these plants are getting so much fame is that it is used for relaxation purposes. People claim that it releases the stress levels. If you are suffering from anxiety and depression you can use the hemp plants which has no negative side effects. But still, most of the people are confused between using it and marijuana as people describe that it doesn’t affect your mind and body to an alarming stage. But marijuana does. It has a very light and relaxing effect on the body.
Studies on it still continue:
Hemp and cannabis will be fully legalized when the scientist will come to a proper conclusion and approve its usage as they are still figuring out the physical and mental benefits of these plants. Also people must be well aware of cannabidiol which will allow them to make a better choices about their health and way of living.
