Marijuana helps regulate your weight

Surprising, right? Isn’t ganja supposed to give you the munchies and make you overeat? Quite the contrary.

Cannabis users actually have a lower body mass index and smaller waistlines, suggesting that weed can actually help regulate appetite and calorie intake in most individuals.

It can control seizure activity

Research in recent years has shown an amazing connection between marijuana and seizure activity. The Epilepsy Foundation chronicled in early 2017 that medical herb can help control seizures. This is especially good news for controlling more difficult cases such as Dravet syndrome in children and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in both kids and adults.

It can help Tourette’s syndrome

This debilitating syndrome can manifest in children as young as 6 years old, and the physical and verbal tics that accompany the nervous system malfunctioning are difficult to control. However, a recent study found that medicinal marijuana helped Tourette patients control their verbal and motor tics. Researchers are calling for more studies to get an even better idea as to how effective cannabis is in treating Tourette syndrome.
