Why Medical Marijuana?
Medical Marijuana has some major health benefits. Did you know that Florida medical marijuana products are cultivated without the use of harmful chemicals or ingredients? In stark contrast, marijuana from non regulated or street level sources can often be contaminated with chemicals, fungus, and even harmful street drugs. From a medical standpoint, physicians cannot advocate for the delivery of super-heated cannabis particles inhaled into the sensitive tissues of the lungs (which is how most recreational marijuana usage occurs). By committing to a regulated medical process with clean delivery methods you can limit the harmful effects of marijuana on your body and maximize the positive effects. Here are some other positive effects of Medical Marijuana:
