You’ve probably seen endless blog posts promoting the benefits of medical marijuana, cannabis extracts, and overwhelmingly positive news articles. While I am a huge fan of cannabis legalization and normalization within society, we have to face the fact that we still live in a world with societal issues.
They'll say things like marijuana is the "devil's lettuce," a "gateway drug," or "makes you stupid." They couldn't be further from the truth, and the reality is no one has ever died from a marijuana overdose.
What’s the difference between CBD Oil and Hemp Oil?
Coffee consumption is increasing within all age groups, and it’s the primary source of caffeine for the average person. People take it to boost mood, improve focus, aid with socializing, or simply recover from a rough night. Some people are not fans of it due to the jitters, increased anxiety and the effect it has on the adrenal glands.
In the recent past the popularity of cannabidiol (CBD) has grown in leaps and bounds. In just a short period of time, this cannabis extract has been shown to have a number of health benefits.

A lot of people disregard marijuana, weed, pot, reefer, etc. as a gateway drug. I believe it can be depending on the person, as it was in my case. Trying any substance can easily lead to curiosity of other substances. I smoked marijuana for the first time my freshman year in high school. I fell in love with the effects of being high. I got to the point to where I would skip class to get high with friends. My senior year I would smoke marijuana every night before bed. I noticed I would be extremely sleepy and groggy the next morning. I would fall asleep during class and get in trouble. Marijuana would make me lazy, tired, and unproductive. I told myself I would never try any other drug, especially meth or heroin. Marijuana would lead me to curiosity of other substances later on.
Marijuana? The cure or the enemy?
