Cannabis is mostly used as a recreational plant or as a medicinal drug, although in many places it may also be used for religious or spiritual purposes. In 2013, between 120 and 233 million,s people used cannabis (2.7% to 4.9% of the global population between the ages of 14 and 64). 

In 2015, 43% of Americans had ever used cannabis, which substantially increased to 51% in 2016. This makes this illegal drug the most commonly used drug in the world.



MEDICINAL USE OF CANNABIS:


To treat diseases or improve symptoms, medical cannabis or medical marijuana can refer to the use of cannabis. The active scientific study of cannabis as a medicine has been hampered by production restrictions and other federal regulations. 

There is very limited evidence suggesting that cannabis can be used to reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, to improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, and to treat chronic pain and muscle spasms(overuse and muscle fatigue). Its use for other medical applications is insufficient for conclusions about safety or effectiveness.


CANNABIS AS A MEDICAL AID:


1. Cannabis is a powerful weapon against the opioid epidemic.

One of the biggest health news stories of 2016 and 2017 has been the increasing need to address the opioid(narcotics that act on opioid receptors to produce morphine-like effects) crisis. Also, Its use for other medical applications is insufficient for conclusions about safety or effectiveness studies over the last couple of years has identified that there are fewer opioid-related overdoses in the country with access to medicinal cannabis. But those studies didn’t directly suggest whether medical cannabis led to improved pain management as an opioid substitute.

American journal of neuroscience surveyed 271 Canadian patients who were seeking prescription drug treatment for a variety of ailments including pain, anxiety, and depression; among these, 63% reported that cannabis substituted for their prescription medications(specified by the doctor). Specifically, among pain patients, 30% reported that they switched their prescription opioids(narcotics that act on opioid receptors to produce morphine-like effects) for cannabis. Patients reported that one of their greatest reasons for switching from opioids to cannabis wasn’t necessarily because of better symptom management (after all, opioids are effective painkillers…initially), but because there were veer few side effects associated with cannabis use.

Scientists of the University of New Mexico measured substitutability of cannabis for opioids to the test in a cohort(a group of people with a shared characteristic) of chronic pain patients. They found that 85% of patients who received access to medical cannabis reduced their opioid prescriptions, compared to 45% in the comparison group. Notably, 42% of the cannabis users stopped using opioids altogether.


2. Low doses of THC promote healthy brain aging.

For 28 days, researchers gave a solitary low-dosage of THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) to youthful and old mice, after which they were tried for learning, memory, and subjective adaptability (how well they could adjust to evolving directions). Old mice, for the most part, perform more regrettable than youthful mice in these errands, however, THC made execution difficult in youthful mice. In any case, old mice treated with THC performed comparatively to their more youthful partner that did not get THC, uncovering that THC can weaken cerebrum work in the youthful, however, protect age-related decrease in old creatures. 

The researchers uncovered that restricted in which low-dosage THC advances sound mind maturing is by affecting the example in which certain qualities are communicated. Qualities, which are the DNA guidelines for building every one of the proteins in your body, are differentially communicated relying upon age; there are "youthful" quality articulation examples and "old" quality articulation designs. One of the marquee discoveries in this investigation was that low-dosage THC moved the old mice's quality articulation to resemble that of the youthful creatures.


3. Cannabis can help escalate your sex life.

There are many risks worthy anticipating features with regards to cannabis. In any case, one of the most recent to be exposed is that cannabis is awful for your sexual coexistence. Some case that cannabis diminishes sex drive or it debilitates execution. 

Stanford University doctors broke down sexual movement information from more than 50,000 people and showed that cannabis utilizes really expanded the impact of the sexual act. This expansion was found in the male and female both over statistic gatherings. The examination, be that as it may, did not address the impact of cannabis use on sexual activity. But regarding whether regular cannabis utilization impacts the capacity to accomplish an erection and accomplish orgasm.


CONCLUSION

In 2015, $21 million dollars in United States government funding went towards therapeutic cannabinoid research. That amount increased by a third in 2016 and is projected to rise even more in 2017. Almost half of this amount went towards studying CBD, which is thought to convey many of cannabis’ medicinal benefits.
